The llnanclnl interests are not the

Murphey found out. All the big mer

likof the democratic party , not alone
in New York city , but In the state
wants Mr. Cleveland. The sentiment
for Parker Is almost wholly artificial ,
Mr. Murphey claims , and has boon
fostered by politicians who have been
made use of it for tholr own purposes.
On the other hanVI , the sentiment
in favor of Mr. Cleveland is sincere
and deeply grounded , nothwltbstand-
Ing that the politicians who are
clamoring for Judge Parker have
studiously ignored It.
It now appears that the only demo
cratic leaders In Now York who are
demanding instructions for Parker
are former United States Senator
David H. Hill , State Senator Patrick
H. McCarren , August Hclmont , who Is
interested In the subway enterprise ,
and others of less prominence.

Now York , April 7. The now steer

is on , in earnest and It Is now possible
for Immigrants to como from north

bination of the North German Lloyd ,
the Hamburg-American , Holland-
American and Red Star lines , which

for an Instructed delegation , solid for
the New York editor , but the delega

the support going to Hearst and the
balance to Parker.
Claude Dunlnp of Hutchliison , who
headed the- element , against Instruc
tions for Hearst wan made temporary
chairman of the convention , with but
few dissenting votes.
The antl-llearnt men contend that
they are fighting against Instructions
and not against Hearst and contend
that In sending an Instructed delega

precedent of Instructing for no ono.
It Is believed , however , that them
was a Parker Influence at work nnd
that homo of the votes can bo mifely
counted for him.

convention week after next The re
sult of the recent primaries In that
state are not regarded as decisive
and only the state convention will
show conclusively which way the
Democracy of the Empire state in
leaded. If New York instructs for
Parker It will bo accepted as a cer
tainly that Parker is Now York's
choice. The conservative wing of
the party , as distinguished between
the radical Cleveland wing and the
extreme Brynn-Hcarst wing , is prac
tically pledged to abide by the choice
of Now York state. If Now Yorlc
should not Instruct its seventy-eight
delegates for Parker and bind them
by the unit rule , all will bo chaos in
the conservative ranks as well as in
the other two ranks. That would betaken
taken to mean that Now York had no
