BALTIMORE , Oct. 15. United States
Senator Qorman today Issued an open letter
to Hdvvln Abcll , publisher of the Baltimore
Sun , In which he offers to relinquish the
leadership of the democracy In Marland ,
provided Mr. Abcll will accept It and sup-
pert the democratic tlckel tn Ihc coming
state and legislative campaign. He also In
timates that ho will forego his ambition to
succeed himself In the Uiltcd States senate
It It cio be thow n that such a step Is neces
sary to democratic success The letter ,
which Is aery long one , reviews the course
of the Sun In Its opposition to Mr Gor
man , because of his views on civil service ,
tariff and ballot reform measures. To all
the charges made against him upon this
score , Mr. Gorman pleads guilty , but quotes
tin- Sun aa having admitted that such ques
tions were largely matters of opinion , and
asserts thai every man Is free to think as
he pleases regarding them. He defends his
course in regard to all these questions , and
concludes with the following proposition :
OETS DOWN TO BUSINESS.
"And now , Mr. Abcll , let us pass to a
question touching which there can be no
misunderstanding Ihoso statements and
counter statements , arguments and retorts
all this pett ) cUhh of proteslatlon and Im
peachment amount to very little at the
best. You have declared jour und ) Ing de
votion to the democratic paity and have
said that ni ) leadership , mj personal am
bitions , my s"lflsh purposes and enl ) these ,
prevent jou from lestoilng your newspaper
to the service of the loyal people who
originally made It ilch and powerful b ) their
ratronago , their confidence and their sup
port. You have given Mar ) land to under
stand that but for me and the 'bcsslsm'
) ou are pleased to attrlbulo to mo ) ou
would bring hack the Baltimore Sun to Its
old moorings and Jevote it to the exposition
of democratic principles , and the overthrow
of republican rule In this state
"You have stated In effect certainly with
the intent of being so understood that jou
still believe In the democratic party and still
want It to predominate In Maryland , and you
thereby li-volve ) outsell In a pledge to cast
off ) our republican atllllatlons , repudiate
jour republican allegiance-and labor heart
nrd soul for the success of the democratic
party as It will remain after being purged
SOLUTION IS SIMPLE
"It ) ou he sincere In this Ihe solution of
the difficult ) Is simple enough If my aspira
tions ni ) leidership , my Influence , consti
tute the only obstacles to jour return to the
people who made your newspaper and
founded jour fortunes aud gave reality to
jour position and jour power , I sland ready
to remove them Olllco Is less to me than
jou suppose. Political leadership Is not so
necessary to my happiness ns > ou , In ) our
ignorance of my character and motives , arc
pleased to say. Strange as It may seem to
) ou I am willing to surrender every prospect
of personal promotion If by so doing I can
reunite the democratic party , restore to its
rarks all their prlstlro slrcnglh and har-
inon ) . allay Ihe dissensions and anlincxalllcs
that now exist and face the humiliating
spectacle presented by yourself and men of
jour way ot thinking the spectacle of the
democratic party betrayed into the hands of
the enemy by those who made its past
exalted. I do not undertake to say how
much admiration jou or any other mar ma )
have for the democratic party , but I know
how much I Ic-vc it and 1 have no personal
ambltl-ns I will not sacrifice for its honor
and welfare I know , too , I have no a 111 lia-
tionb , no engagements , no plans of any kind
that could by any posslblllt ) embarrass nie
in making the proposed anangement.
OVERTURE OF SURRENDER.
"You may understand this as an overture
ot surrender on my part as an admission
that the democratic organization cannot hope
for furlher life wllbout your aid and counte
nance I am prepared for thai. I have been
misunderstood by jou KO long and so un
reasonably thai a little more or less will
count for nothing. As a matter of fact , I am
satisfied that the people of Maryland have
become disgusted with the two ) ears of 10-
publlcan maladministration which jou did
so much to make possible and they are In
a humor to matte an end of the cNperlment.
Jt Is nol only what has been done , H Is the
extravagance and the corruption which they
sco awaiting them In the event of a perpet
uation of republican rule. They feel that
pvery substantial Interest In the state -la
jeopardised and they are determined , wither
or without you , to restore to power the dem
ocratic p-uty , which has never hltheito be-
trajed them and In whoso hands they will
/eel their honor and their Interests to bo
secure As to this I have not the shadow
ot a doubt. But they want , also , a restora
tion of the former harmon ) of the party.
Ihey want to sec the old lines restored and
, the old operations rehabilitated. And I owe
them BO much as to feel not only willing ,
but anxious to consummate any wish of
theirs , no matter at what cost to me.
"Are jou ready and willing and frco to
meet me on this ground In good faith , In
all loyalty , without provisos or reservations ,
on the honor of t gentleman Are jou at
liberty to take charge personally and
through jour agents of the democratic cam
paign for the mijorulty of Baltimore , for
the legislature and for the success to that
place In the senate concerning which I
have but one desire that of ssclng It filled
by a demccrul whose lo > alty to the party
Is unquestioned aud proved and who will
advocate and uphold the principles to which
jou profess un.elfish and sincere devotion ?
If jou are I am reid ) to meet ) ou more
than half way. Let me hear from ) ou and
let our fellow citizens judge between us
by the measure ) of cur pc scnal good faith
aud party Io > alty therein.

NEW YORK Oa 15 The letter of ac
ceptance of Charles W Iitcn for the oillcn
ot comptroller t u the Thomas Jefferson
ticket was ir.tule public tonight , and In part
Is as follows
"The administration of tbo olllce ot comp
troller of the second city ot the world is ono
which necessarily affect * iho Interests of the
poorest as well as the richest-citizen U
will Involve a sstem of finance , nol only of
enormous magnitude , but ot Infinite detail ,

thin this , the comptrollfr must stand be

trcisury and the welfare ot the cltltcii who

encigl's and such abilities as 1 possVis
Aureoles , as I do , with many of the prin
ciples set forth In the platform of the
democracy of Thomas Jefferson , 1 deem the
main Issue In the municipal campaign now
confronting the people to be whether
Crokcrlsm shall for the next four jcara rule
otir great city. Hy Crokerlsm 1 mean an
Imperious government In the hands rf one
man who administers a principality simply
through the medium of personal favoritism ,
subserviency to his will and purposes being
the essential test of fitness for office.
"Until the people Hhall decide1 otherwise I
will refuse to believe that this magnificent
clt ) , with all Its attractions , Its great future ,
Its affairs and Its treasury , will be p'.aced in
the hanc.g of any self-constituted ruler. Every
instinct of manho d , sclf-re pcct , patriotism ,
civ Ic prldo and true democracy rebels against
such a prospect. At all events I rejoice at
tno opportunity which jour nomination oilers
to take a stand against such humiliation.
"This Issue of personal n le In party af
fairs Is fundamental to the cause of popu
lar government. If one man controls the
action of a great party from the prlmor cs
to the conventions , and thus secure practical
ownership of men elected to ofilco , we no
longer have a government of the people , for
the people and by the people , but Insteid
a government of the people , b ) the despct
for hla own purpose , whatever th.it may
be. If this despot Mull be permitted po
litical ambition will b6 stultod , puie gov
ernment must cease , and -vassalage must
take the place of personal liberty.
"The coming of Mr. Cioker and his as
sumption ot control In the dcmoc-ntlc part )
of Greater New York , the autocratic methods
pursued by him , the utter absence of .in )
voice but his ! n the conventions of the
part ) , the stilling of even the right to be
heard on the floor of conventions all this
seems to me to raise a doubt as to whether
or not wo are living In a land of free men.

opera house tonight , was cut short In Its
performance by n tragic realisation of the
actual danger * of a great city , The house
was fairly "well " filled , not crowded. A little
bifoie S 50 o'clock tonight a lad > In the
audience sajs she heard n creeping noise
which continued for live minutes before the
c'.tastrophe. She gave It little attention ,
thlnUng It was part of the performance.
Presently the plastering began to fall la
particles at first , but en ugh to alarm some
ot the timid or cautious , who retired A
little later the plastering began to shower
down In great chunks It came from the
celling above , which supported the dome.
There was a rush from the gallery , which
was not very well filled The balcory was
teen emptied. Those In the dress circle re
tired as prcmptlj as possible , and , strange
to say , without an appirent panic The
omv cling of these to the doai obstructed the
pissage of people fro.n the parquette , which
accounts In a measure for the number of
casualties. Nobody expected at the moment
anj other damage than from the falling
TRUSS GIVES WAY.
Suddenly and with n great crash the great
central truss of the celling elghtj feet lot" ?
and thirty feet wide , came plunging down
The enis ot It struck on the two gallerj
wings and doubled It up In the center , scad-
ing It down Into the parquelte with a great
fccatterment of Joists and timbers Nothing
on the stage was harmed. Of course there
were iroans of the Injured and as often
happens loudest from those least hurt.
The news spread rapidly and there was
a rubh ot mtrol wagons and of dremcn to
the scene. The salvage corps with Its wagon
v\w first on the ground and it was followed
by all of the police patrol wagons , who car
ried the Injuied to the ClnUnnatl hospital.

In addition to these a largo number , proha

of t-urgeons volunteered their nsslsta-ice to
the hospital corps A Rulllclent number was
accepted. The scene In front of the hospital
door was ? pad one Hundreds of people
gathered there clamoring for the names of
the injured. An attendant stood at the dooi
with a list of those brought to the hospital
and anavvcicd those anxious Inquliies Manj

KEEPING THE CROWDS BACK.
At the opera house rones wcio stretched
aciots all approaching streets 2nd the police
had all they could do to Ieip the crowd of
7000 or S.OOU people from crushing tlnough
All sorts of wild rumors were afloat and
public curiosity was on tiptoe , nil the more
indent because of these rumors. Theio was a
sturj afloat that one man was missing. It
was a wild stoiy , for he could not be In tl.o
opera house , where the debris was so Fcat-
teied that It did not form a piled up mas ?
anywhere. Anone standing at the den of
tha hospital In front of that pitiful , s-ouow-
ful , anxiously Inquisitive crowd eould under
stand how not one man , but that many men ,
women and children were missing by frunlfi
at home The damage to the structure vas
nothing at all. to fie stage comparative ) }
little , to the gallery almost nothing , to the
drfss circle much lc < s than one would think
from the debris scattcicd around through the
parquette , wheio the main truss landed The
truss rested In the parquetto very much In
tha shape of a capital letter V. The wonder
Is that so few vvro hint , and of the few hurl
that bo many escaped with blight Injuries
CAUSE OF UIE DISASTER
The cause of the accident tonight seems
to bo easily discovered. Among the first
who enteied the building after the dome had
fallen was President George W. Rapp ot the
Cincinnati chapter , American Institute of
"It was not that dome,1 said he , pointing
to the huge heap In the center of the floor ,
"that caused Iho trouble The fault lies with
the roof trusses. The house had been built
- and the wood
inoro than twotbty-livo je-ars
has shrunk until the bolts and nails at-
forded the smallest possible security. One
of these tmeses had rotted away from Its
fastenings ; It haa parted and thrown the
two sections down , and they , In their
descent , pulled the dome with them. These
wood trusses are of pine and they shrink
very perceptibly In the course of years They
should bo examined every five or six ) cars
Modern structures are put up with hteel
truces. The roof of this the tcr la liable to
como down an ) minute "
Ilullding Inspector Tooker alEO made an
examination of the trusses Ho coincided
with Mr. Rapp that the fault was with them
Said ho "You ECO that the wood has shrunk
and Just let loose lit the ecnter and pulled
the dome with It. The comparatlvcl ) Blow
descent caused by a slow breaking awaj from
Its fastening account * foi the fen tmmedl-
ute deaths It gave those beneath a chance
to get out. "
Inspector Tooker fold that tomorrow the
broken trunsoB would be removed and the ro f
ba madu secure AH It Is now , there la dan-
gtr at an ) time A blngular coincidence la
that the announced play for next week was
entitled "Under the Dome "
