States and the States west of the Mis-
souri River will send silver delegates.
and that they will be strong enough to
outvote all the States not included in
the area described. 'They of course cal-
culate that Illinois will declare again
for free coinage, and to add zest to the
campaign in that State they hint
that the candidate for the nomination
will be found in Illinois.
There was no effort during the con-
vention to start a boom for anyone.
but this was probably due to the fact
that Presidential timber among the sil-
ver men is so limited that a boom at
the present time would do more harm
than good. It was intimated, how-
ever, by several members of the con-
ference that if some of the Western
Statesmen but maintain a discreet si-
lence long enough to see what strength
the silver men will have one of them
may get the nomination.
Senator Call made a brief speech in
the conference, in which he declared
his friendship for the white metal. It
so happened that when the senior Sena-
tor from Florida rose to his feet he
stood confronting one of the large mir-
rors that adorn the walls of the hotel
parlors. It soon became noticeable that
he was talking principally to his own
image in the looking-glass. and that
the address to the conference was but
Incidental. It wxs probably for this
reason that the Senator's speech made
a more apparent impression on him-
self than it did any body else.
The Session in Detnil.
(By AFsoclat.d Pres.)
Washington, D. C.. Aug. 15.-The sil-
ver Democrats continued their c-onfer-
ence at the Metropolitan Hotel at 1,)
o'clock to-day. The committee on reso-
lutions and programme being unable
to report when the meeUng was first
called to order, it. was suggested that
the conference should listen to speeches
by those present C. F. Cochran, editor
of the St. Joseph ,Mo.) Gazette, ad-
dressed the conference. He declared
that the silver agitation would not die
out. but would continue until the end
for which it had been originated should
be attained. He was for a declaration
for silver without regard to the pros-
pect of success or failure at the polls.
Representative Neill of Arkansas an-
no'unced his entire sympathy with the
objects of the present conference. He
declared that the Democratic Party
had no show in the next campaign if
there was not a declaration for silver.
Ex-Representative Fithian of 1Ilino:is
denied that the free-silver sentiment
was dying out in ,tht State. He- de-
clared that illinois will send a delga-
tion to the national convention favor-
able to free co,:inage at 16 to 1, inde. en,-
ent of other nations.
Representative Livingston of, Ger-
gia said that thie time had cme ffor all-
other declaration .o-f independen,:.e. "It
Is tiet purpose of the, country 'ron
which I cornm-." he said. "to prosee-tte
the fight with their coat! off and their
sleeves r,-lled up and Ino_-t to desist Lln-
ti- the end."
Senator Morgan sent a tele-.ram
saying: "I wVill follow the lMd guard
wherever it leads."
Speeches were also made by Senator
Call. A. A. Lipscombo,-_f ,' Washingto,,-
Vo M&. Hill Of,," Missouri. Represetatati\'es

-It was almost 12 o'clock when the
committee on resolutions filed into the
conference-room, and, S wvas recogniz.P(d to make the re-,port of
the committee's proceedings. The ad-
dress was read by Governo:, Stone of
,Missouri. It disclaims, speaking with
party authority, the assemblage being
a. \,:lutary on,:e. but strongly represents
the opinion of the conference that the
.party should declare, for free coinage of
silver.' The address ,concludes, as, fol-
low s. .
"Duty to, the, people requires that the
'party ,of the peopVle continues the ba't-
tle for bime tallism' until its'efforts are
.crowned with success; therefore be it
bResolved,,a That the Demociratic
Party, in, natiorral convention assem-
bled, should demand th-e free and, un-
limited'coinage of silver and gold into
primary or redemption money at the
ratio of 16' to without waiting for
the action 'or approval of anry other
nation. ,
S"Resolved, .That ,it *should declare
'its irrevocable opposition to the suib-
stitution for a .metallic money of a
panic-breeding, corporation-credit cur-
rency,' based on asing'le metal, the suP-
ply 0f which is. so, limited that it can be
cornered at any 'time by a few bank-
ing institutions in Europe and America.
"Resolved, .That it should declare its
opposition to the policy and practice of
surrendering to tihe holders of the ob-:
ligations of the United States the op-
tion reserved by the law to the Goviern-
men, of redeeming .such obligations in
either silver ,coin or gold'coin.
'"Resolved, That.it should declare iJ-.s
opposition to issuing of interest-bearng
bonds of the United States ,in time of
peace, and especially to placing the
Treasury of the Government under the
control" of ,any syndicate :of bankers.

far. In the agitation now to draw back.
and they therefore find it necessary to
continue the fight upon such lines that
.will enable them- to accept thee decree
0fthe national convention, if not with
cheerfulness, at least with submission.
This Is fplly believed'here to be the,
whole purpose of the conference_.
The formation ,of a national organiza-
Al.. tion cannot aid the movement to any
i appreciable_ extent. ., Such men as will
: be found to .serve upon, the national
.' ',,committee to'be appointed by the'exe-
cutive committee are doing, all they
can now to spread the craze, and their
effectiveness can scarcely be increased
by the fact that they are now members
of a. national organization. -
S-On the other hand,. the 'announce-
".' ment that the fight is' one, for Demo-
( crafts'only, and 'that neither Populists
nor Republican$ are wanted to take
', part in it,'will .deprive 'thte movement
< 'of ,such assistance as, It would natu-
'; rally receive' from these organizations.
,I. is 'claimed, however, by the piomo-
ters of the scheme that this will be a
. blessing to the silver wing of. the party
in both the, South ,and West, because it
wil'l bring lto, them many Democrats
: ., who' have held aloof through the fear
t '._" hat the advocacy of free silver would
lead' them out of the Democratic Party
i int6 that of the Populists "or some kin-
dred organization. -
t The Plan of Camnpaign.
Th11 plan1 of eamp'aign is to be. not ,so
t muclh an aggressive one against the
gold men as: it will be a still hunt for
delegates) to. the convention, andq for
this reason, it is thought by the silver
leaders, a na-tional organization may be:,
beneficial. The movement is so clearly
l6'sing ground that it must-be thought
mpst bf,. the claims made are but part
of the bluster with which the silver men
attemptto impress the country.
P For the:first time, the conference was
to-day open, to thepublic, and the irre-
sponsible portion of the gathering was
given an opportunity to air their
views, while, the more responsible mnem-
bers were busy completing the address
to the country and the plan of cam-
paign. As a result, some ill-advised
and intemperate speeches were made
by a few, gentlemen from the 'West. who
are not known outside their resp:,ective
localities. The Administration.-was as-
sailed as the tool of the gold bugs. and
'.President Cleveland and Secretary
Carlisle were denounced as traitors to
th.e people and to the party.
Representative Jones of Virginia took
occasion to rebuke these outbursts, and
in a very conservative speech' he de-
clared himself as warm a friend of sil-
ver as anyone in the country, but said
he had been a Democrat before he was
a silver man, and would remain a Dem-
,ocrat no matter what platform is
adopted. -N
Representative Lockhart ,,f North
'' Carolina spoke in a similar strain, and
counseled his hearers to treat the mat-
.'ter earnestly and not with bitterness
In their opposition toc) those who fail to
'" agree with thetm. The only-significance
in these addresses was the evident de-

c. crease the schism in the party ranks.

The Address to the Country Is Very
Moderate in Tone-Senator Call
Addresses Himself Elo-
quently In A Mirror.

(Special to the Citizen.)
Washington, D. C., Aug. 15.-The sil-
ver conference came to an inglorious
end to-day. The programme announc-
ed In these dispatches last night was
carried out, and without any discus-
sion of ;he work of the committee the
address t5 the country was adopted. It
Is difficult to see h'ow the action of the
conference is going to benefit the silver,
cause, but it is possible it may have
the effect of bringing many ardent ad-
vocates of free coinage to their senses.
The address to the country is moder-
ate In tone, and while it repeats all
the well-used arguments of the silver
men, It cannot widen the breach be-
tween the factions of the party. What
Is fAY1 more significant and important
to the country than the action of the
conference was the evidence through-
out the proceedings that the stiver
Democrats have no intention of leav-
ing. the organization and affiliating with
the Populists or any new party that
may be formed from the disgruntle-d
elements after the national conventions
shall have adopted platforms. The fact
that to a..arge extent the conference
wa-I intended to. head off just such a
move on the part of the extremists is
practically admitted by the leaders of
the movement. For this reason the de-
clarations of the conference, likeithose
of some other political organizations,
are more fpr effect than observance.
The address itself, as Governor Stone
said, is substantially the same as that
adopted by the Democratic convention
In Mississippi, and wholly the same as
that adopted by the silver Democratic
convention of Texas. It purports to
be a thorough declaration of the prin-
ciples of the party upon the money
question, and as such may mislead a
few uninformed people.
Real Purpvose of the Meeting.
The general understanding, however,
of the manner in which it was formed,
and the character of the gathering,

aim. He thinks that it would attract
a great deal of attention, and. be the
means of materially assisting that in-
dustry; His opinion is that if the ra'il-
roads would make a good rate, issu-
ing excursion tickets with a broad lim-

would surely catch all the old soldiers

who would take advantage of the rates

7; With Proper. Cultivation It Should
Succeed in This State.
(Special to the Citizen.)
-- Orlando, Aug. 15.-Among other in-
& dustries suggested by the Reporter,
i- which might be carried on advantage-
-- ously in Orlando is the growing of cas-
tor beans and the manufacture of the
i- oil. The oil mill is understood to be a
4 not very expensive plant. The cost
1- would be, within the reach of our busi-
ness men. In the- light of two years
e experience here,it might be claimed,
o that the beans cannot be successfully
,t grown here. It is true,, Western men
of experience in the manufacture of the
4 oil attempted for two years to grow
)f castor beans near, here and made a
r failure of the undertaking; but this
s failure was predicted by every intel-
t ligent old, resident who- took enough
interest in the matter to inform himself
:, of the time and manner of planting.
d Last year the ,planting ,was deferred
g until late in May. The plants came on
- finely, made a, rapid ,growth, and the
- gentlemen gathered two cuttings of
r beans or heads before the frost of last
e winter cut down the plants. This year
s he waited until about the same date,
e hoping that the roots of his last year's
r plants would throw up sprouts and thus
make plants. When satisfied that the
e old ro6ts were dead, he put in, mules
c and plows, and furrowed the land, run-
e ning furrows -four or five feet apart.
a In: these fie dropped his seed and c,,-
ered it. The weeds had already taken-
thee middles, which were not plowed,
and when the young plants made their
1-plpearanee they, were alr-eaVy o,'et-'l
i gr,-,wn and were soon smoothered with
the. dense growth of weeds. Had he
prepared his ground better, the lateness
of the season would no d,-iu bt have pro-
, duced the same results as followed laEft
year's experiment. The time and
money put into this year's' experiment
w were thrown away.
Inthis connection was,an object les-
r son which should have pointed out to
this man his error, and which points
every observing man the way to suc-
cess. Last falls cuttings of heads were
' thrown on a large threshing floor at
cnee corner of the field to dry, so that
) the seed could be threshed from the
t hulls. In this process thousands of
t beans were scattered upon the ground.
Here they lay all winter, passing
. through two if the most severe freezes
known in the history of Florida. In
the early spring these germinated, and
when our friend was running out- his
furrows and preparing to plant this
year the young plants, from these scat-
tered beans were two feet high. They.
,have continued to grow, uncared for
and unattended, and at this date are
maturing seed, with full four months
before them in. which to mature seed
before there is the least danger of frost. t
The lesson is that the seed of the
castor bean can be safely planted in .
this region in December, and" be ready
to germinate with the first warm
weather of spring with a; certainty of
a harvest of four months' duration even
in the most adverse seasons, and a
probability of living through three win-
:ters out of four with a harvest period .of
*.nine rronths', duration the following
summer. With such an advantage .
over other sections growing castor
beans, and with a mill owned and oper-
ated by the men who cultivate the: land
and grow the seed., absolute, independ-
ence of any trust, or combine is secured, r
and. the profits would remain in .the
kands of the grower and manufacturer.

J. E. Sistrunk, a negro, who claims to
be a lawyer, was next called to the
stand. He stated that he had been re-
tained by the two House brothers to
look after their side of the suit, and to
ascertain, if possible, why Mr. Pope
was not pushing it. He knew that Mr.
Pope had been retained, and that after-
ward Michelson took charges of the suit.
He went to see j Michelson about it,
and Michelson told him that the suit
was getting along all right and that a
settlement would be made when court
met. Michelson also told him that he
had received the $25 that had been paid
to Mr. Pope by the House brothers.
Had Settled the Case.
Sistrunk did not like Michelson's
story, so he went to see ,Mr. Toomer
about the case and Mr. Toomer told him
that he had settled the case with Mich-
elson for $75. Sistrunk then went to
see Michelson again, and this time he
admitted that ,he had received the
money, and had notified House of it,
but asked him to wait for a week or
two until he could get some money as
he had spent the amount that he re-
ceived from Mr. Toomer. The witness
waited for several weeks, but as no
money was forthcoming he told Mr.
Pope of the affair. Mr Pope said that
Michelson had not received the $25 re-
tainer fee from him, and that Michel-
son had nothing at all to do With the
case. House had paid Michelson $12.50
as a retainer's fee.
This was all of the witnesses for the
prosecution. The defense had no wit-
nesses and Michelson was put on the
stand to make a statement.
Miehelson's Statement.
Said that he had been approached/
by both of the House brothers, who
asked him to take charge of the case,
as Colonel Pope had been at it for more
than a year, and had not even entered
suit against the company. He did not
like to take the case, knowing that Col-
onel Pope was very peculiar, and that
he. would claim that he was trying to
take his clients away from him. The
two men came to him three times, and
the third time he took the case. He
received a retaining fee of $10. He
told Mr. Pope that he had taken charge
of the case, by request of the two men.
Mr. Pope told him that he had charge
of the case, and that he Michelson to
have nothing at all to do with it. Mich-
eison told this to the two men who had
employed him and they stated that they
would employ whoever they pleased,
and for Pope to let the case alone. He
stated that Joseph House had with-
drawn from the case, and left his
brother Noah in full charge. Michel-
son told Noah House that he would not
take charge of-the case unless he would
give him full power of attorney, and
allow him to settle the case as he might
see fit. This paper.was drawn up, .and
Noah signed it after it 'had been, read
to him by Cromwell Gibbons to be sure
that he understood its nature.
'Spent the Money.
Michelson said he collected the $75,
and spent his portion of it Sistrunk
came to him and told him that he
wanted the money for his client. Later
he -received a letter from Sistrunk stat-
inig that House had decided to decline
the $75 compromise. Still later another
letter came, stating that House would
accept it. Michelson offered a mule
and cart to House in settlement of the*
case. This was accepted, and House
was to come for it the same day, but
he did not do so. Later it was refused,
and Sistrunk, on behalf of House, stat-
ed that he would accept the mule, and
wagon, and give a receipt in full for
the amount' if Michelson would secure
the signatures Of two lawyers to a pa-
per recommending that Sistrunk be ad-
mitted to ,the bar' to practice law.
*When this proposition was rmade to him
M Lchelson cursed at, Sistrunk and he
then told Mr. Pope of the affair. 'This
was the end of his statement, except
that he said he did not think Mr. Pope
had anything to',do with the case.'
M. C. Jordan made a short argument.
-an0 asked for the immediate discharge
of the prisoner. O:,unty Solicitor
Christie represented the State, but he
did not make any':argument. Justice
Smith thought' that .the evidence
against Michelson was sufficient to hold
him for trial' before the Criminal Court,
and he was sent to jail'in, default of
bond in the su4 of $700. 7
Two More Arrests.
After the, attorneys had concluded
,their arguments, two warrants were is-
sued for the arrest of J. E. Sistrunk
and Noah. House, on the charge of con-
spiracy. Sistrunk was arrested in the,
courtroom and was immediately taken
to the Sheriff's office. He called up
J. N, C. Stockton, whom he wanted to
go on his bond. When he learned that
Mr. Stockton was ou-t of town, he con-
eluded that he would have to go to
the County Jail, and await the arrival
of some ,0ne who was willing to give,
the necessary $500 bond, the bail hav-
ing been placed at that amount.
*House was arrested bVy Sheriff Bow-
den and' Deputy Sheriff Vinzant later
in the day and taken to the County
Jail, in default'of $500 basil.
The conspiracy is said to-lie in the
efforts of Michelson, House, and Sis-.
trunk to get money from the Alabama
Coal Company, without the authority
of Joseph 'House, brother "of Noah,
who was the Pers~n<>uthorized,to con-
duct the case.

Michelson, when seen' in the Sheriff's
office, afteT the hearing, said that al-
,though he was morally guilty of
wrong-doing that he, was not legally
guilty of any violation of the State
laws, and that all we wanted Was a
fair and impartial trial and he was
confident of acquittal.
S-In speaking of an article that recent-
ly appeared in a Jacksonville paper, he
said, that as-soon as he had cleared
himself of the. present charge he in-
tehded to immediately institute pro-
ceedings against the paper for libel,
saying that his character had-been de-
famed by being mentioned as of ille-
gitimate birth. He says that he has
ample evidence that-will prove that he
was born of a good family, and that
he has a mother and father, as well
as" sisters and brothers.
I A Pleasant Trip.
Sheriff Bowden, who brought Michel-
son back to Jacksonville, left here last
Mop.day night for Tallahassee and, se-
cured requisition papers. He left for
Montgomery the following day. Upon
his arrival at Montgomery, the;Sheriff
learned that his prisoner who was then
.in the County Jail, had, secured a po-
sition, previous to his incarceration, to
take charge of the criminal, depart-,
ment of a well-known. law firm in >Mont-
The Chief of Police had formed a, like-
ing for the prisoner, as had a number,
',of prominent men in the city. It was
also .learned that the night previous
to his arrest, Michelson had dined with
one of theState Senators of Alabama,
and, was on the road to winning social
distinction when the arrest was made.
During the trip from Montgomery,
Sheriff Bowden deemed it unnecessary.
to handcuff ,the prisoner and the time
was spent talking over the case'.
When the Sheriff and his prisoner ar-

lard yesterday morning on the charge of

ing. Frank W. Pope has been, retain-
ed by Zeigler, and Preston will.be rep-

they started up the street, closely fol-
lowed by the Nixon woman. At, the

after the fight was over.

Emvidenee Sufficient To Hold Him on
the Charge of Forgery, and He
Was Sent to Jail in Default of
$700 Bond-His Statement.

Alexis M. Michelson I's now a prisoner
at the County Jail in this city. Sheriff
Bowden arrived in the city at 8:10 a.
m." yesterday with Michelson, whom he
brought from Montgomery, Ala., from
which place he was brought on the
charge of forgery.
Deputy Sheriff McMillan met the
Sheriff and- his prisoner at the depot
and the trio were driven to the Sheriff's
office at the Courthouse.
Immediately upon arriving, at 'the
Sheriff's office, Michelson -sent a note
to his wife and she came to the office
soon afterward. Upon her arrival Mrs.
Michelson was embraced by her hus-
band, and the affection between them
seemed reciprocal. Michelson and his
wife afterward retired to a comer, of
the office, where an animated conversa-
tion was heWd by them for a few min-
At 10 o'clock Michelson was taken to
the office of Justice Smith and his bond
was fixed t.t $300. He started out with
his ,attorney, M. C. Jordan, and accom-
panied by Deputy Sheriff Nolan, to
look for the required bond. At 2 o'clock
he returned and stated that he had the
bond ready. Justice Smith had in the
meantime decided to raise 'the' bond
from $300 to $1,000. This Michelson
said he was unable to procure, and de-,
manded a hearing at once. The hear-
ing'of the case was set for 3 o'clock in
the afternoon.
Hearing the Case.- -
At the appointed time all persons in-
terested were present, and the hearing
was gone into. Wiley G. Toomer of the
Alabama Coal Company was the first
witness. He stated that/he had been
presented with an order.by Mr. Mich-
elson, signed with the name of Frank
W. Pope, for $75 in settlement of the
case of Noah House vs. the Alabama
,Coal Company, for the death of Abe
Mumford, which occurred at the docks,
of the Company in January 1894. The
order had the. signature of Colonel Pope
attached to it, and 'requested Mr.
Toomer to, pay the $75 and take Mr.
Michelson's receipt for it. He sent for
his attorney, J. M. Barrs, and upon
Mr. Barr's suggestion, he made out a
check for $75.and gave it to. Mr. Michel-
son. Later he received a letter from
Mr. Pope asking if he had paid the
money to Michelson. He answered
that he had, and gave the order to Mr.
Barrs to show -to Mr. Pope. Mr. Pope
declared the order to be a forgery.
F. W. Pope was the next witness. He
stated that he, had.been informed, by a
negro named Sistrunk, and also by one
named House, that Michelson had
" forged his name to, an order on'the
'Alabama Coal Company and thus se-
* cured $75. He did not credit the, story
of the negroes, and went to see, Michel-
son about it. He saw Michelson and
was told by him that he had not forged
S, an* order, and had not received any
[i money fromn the Alabama Coal Com-
f'ff.:, pany ,
'* Pronounced it a Forgery. '
t-- 'r.^Po.stCtPej that _he did not think,
1't,^ -'.,icte.,,f-le matter until thett-wo no'-'
r o, crees came to him again. He then
*"" wrote a note to Mr. Toomer'and asked
'" him if it were true that Michelson had
presented an order with his signature
attached to it. Mr. Toomer gave Mr.
Pope's letter to Mr. Barrs, and request-
ed him to see hirm .in regard to the
matter. He saw Mr. Pope and showed
him the order. 'He'at once pronounced
it a forgery, and stated that he had not
,. signed. the order, nor had he given any
one else power, to do so.
.Mr. Pope stated that. he received a
letter from Michelson on the night of
the. 7th of August, commencing ,"Dear
Frank", and signed "A. M M". This
letter asked that on accounts of old
friendshiI all be forgotten and for-
given. He also, asked that his wife be
allowed to. speak a few words with him.
1' ., Mrs. Michelson and Mr. Pope went to
Miehelsoni's office, and had a talk about
the matter. It was stated in the]l~etter
that Sistrunk and House had been/
bleeding Michelson ever since they had
been aware of :the fact that he had
.forged the. name of Mr. Pope, and that
,/ he had cursed Sistrunk out on that
day. He asked notate be prosecuted.
'M"; r. Pope stated that ,Mr. 'Barrs, ,as"
attorneyy for the. defendant in the suit
against' ithe Ala~bama Cosa1 Company,
hiad .0fferedf $50 as a, compromise. This
w~as n'ot accepted. Finally $75 was

agreed on, if 'the clients, of Mr. Pope
were willing to ,accept. Mr. Pope" wrote
to Joseph House, and' told him to call
,at his office to consider the' proposffoin.
1 He did not dp ,so. M.ichelson-was told
of Mr. Barrs having offered $75 as ,a
compromise, and it was supposed that
A': he tgqok iadyantage ,of his knowledge
anid thus secured the money.
Gave Michelson a Cheek. c
J. M .Barrs, attorney for, the, Coal
Company, was next placed on the
,stand.,' He said that he had been called
by Mr. Toomerto -represent the Coal
Company in I the,.,suit. Mr. Toomer
wanted to, go, away for some length. of
time, and asked Mr., Barrs if he, could
S' not settle the matter out of the courts.
' He replied, that he thought he could,
N and called on Mr. P6pe". with that object
; 'in, view. He -offered Mr. Pope $50, but
this* Was refuse-d, as ,Mr. Pope. thought
S" .the sum should be $A100. Finally $75 was
agreed upoil.ais 'the amount, and Mr.
S'Pope said 'that he. would, notify his
client. Later, Mr. Bsarns was approach-
ed ,by Michelson, Who stated that Mr.
'Pope; had been discharged from the
case, Oald that he ,had been retained
'to take charge of 'it. He said that $75
would be satisfactor.v, anid ,he wanted
Mr. Barrs to see that it -was paid. Mr.
Bairrs said that he, v;-,'uMl1 prefer an
S* order from Mr. Pope for the money.
AMichelson offered to .go with him to
Mr. Pope., and,get -his 'order for the
money. Mr. Barrs, did not have time
to go to see Mr. Pope, ,o h,:'told Mich-
elson tit go and get the 01"d>-r,. Ali
", order was received, and Upon Mr."

is constructed is a matter of small mo-
ment. We have always pointed out the
ill effects of a law that allows a State to
put Its convict labor in competition
with honest labor. But at present we
have such a law, and no man is harm-
ing a community legally when he hires
convicts and puts them to work. This

is done in other parts of the State, and
Contractor McLain has done nothing
unusual in bringing convicts over to
this section. The State is the guilty
party, and shame rests upon it so long
as it disgraces its statute book with
such laws."

For a number of/years past the gam-
blers have been allowed to operate
openly at Saratoga. Season by season
the crime has grown more prevalent,
and the law-breakers more bold. Last
year the old watering-place, once fa-
mous as the resort og wealth and cul-
ture from all parts of the country, was
largely given over to the gamblers and
the other classes of disreputable peo-
ple of both sexes who follow always in
their train.
At last the moral sentiment of the
community was aroused to the enor-
mity of allowing such open and out-
rageous violation of the law. The bet-
ter class of citizens rose In revolt
against the authorities, who had con-
nived at it, and officials were chosen
who pledged themselves to enforce the
statute against gambling. This sum-
mer, for the first time since it was
opened by John Morrissey many years
ago,: the notorious clubhouse, which
was the headquarters of the profes-
sionals,' has been closed, and no place
where gambling is known to be prac-
ticed is allowed. '/
'The gamblers and their sympathizers
are loud in their declaration that the
enforcement .of the law will ruin the
prosperity of the resoi. They argue
that the gamblers and other law-break-
ers who accompany them belong to a
class. that. spends, money freely, and
that the loss of their patronage will be
a 'very serious matter for the hotels,
restaurants, shops, and business inter-
ests generally. But these claims do not
seem to carry much weight with the
intelligent citizens, and they remain
steadfast In their purpose to sustain
their new reform afficials in enforcing
the law.
The truth is that, instead of gamblers
having benefited Saratoga, every candid
citizen knows that their presence and
their growing prominence have worked
only harm to its interests. As year by
year the old patrons of the watering
place came to understand that it was
being given over to the law-breakers.
they left at the end of the season with
a resolve never to return while the con-
ditions remained the same. Such peo-
ple constitute the backbone of tlhe pros-
perity of any pleasure or health resort,
summer or winter; the class who have
ample means, but quiet taste: who can
afford to stay for months and pay the'
highest prices; but who Insist, first of
-all, upon having things done "decently
and in, order". Noise, confusion, disor-
r, cr.1 are always sure to drive
iM~xujiS~mrfrom UiacDl-ac an_ keep

of the return of Its old piodsperity. Of
course the news of the change in the
policy pursued by the local authorities
toward the gamblers reached many
former patrons who had abandoned the
place for this cause after 'hey had,
made other plans for this season. Such
people are consequently" not yet found
again in their old haunts. **But a goodly
proportion of those who have always
' liked Saratoga and who left it with re-
gret, were at liberty to go where thiey
chose, for the summer, aSnd they gladly
returned.' to their former favorite .among
summer resorts. The proprietors of the
leading .hotels and boarding houses
report that, they have a larger propor-
tion of guests of the most desirable
class this season than ever before since,
the .gambling element became predom-
'Saratoga its having the s'amie eXpe-
rience that every other place has lhad
which tried i the policy of breaking the
:law a~s a means .of "helping trade".'
Law everywhere represents the conv ic-
ti~ons ,of sc majority of the people, in-
",eluding by f~ar the .largest proportion
of ,the educated, intelligent, and well-

to-do, class. A law ,against gambling
means that the preponderance of sen-
timent in ,a civilized State is -on the
side of -the theory that to practice is
a crime, and that it works ,harm not
only .to those' w*h.o- -engage in it, but
-also to the community that permits it.
This being the caLse, the conclusion in-
evitably follows that any city,or town
that allows. the flagrant violationn
of law must,,suffer for it. The numbers
and res-ources ,of the law-breakers
whom it attracts axe small comp ared
with those of the law-keepers whom it

Coloraqdo has hitherto been the Mecca

rapid increase in the patronage of the

Washington, D. C., Aug. 15.-The De-
partment of State has just received
from Minister Terrell a report dated
kg July 25, which throws some light upon
the report telegraphed from Constanti-
nople a few days ago, saying that
-A American citizens had been injured at
or Marsovan. From Minister Terrill's re-
yn port it appears that on July 1 an' Arme-
a nian named Garabad was assassinated
ae at Marsovan, close to a church door. He
3s was the chief man of the Protestant
3r community, and chairman of the coun-
te cil of thirty, who are responsi-
it ble for the peace of the city. It was
3t alleged that he had given the Govern-
n- ment ,information in regard to the
3,s revolutionists.I
Consul Jewett, in reporting this case
ar July 13 to Consul-General Short at
is Constantinople, says that ,numerous
ge Armenians were arrested, as it was said
d there was little doubt that Garabad
f- was murdered by them. Among those
A arrested was a naturalized American
d citizen, who had been a student at the
h American College at Marsovan, but
Is who,* as Mr. Jewett is informed, "had

promptly informed concerning the as-
n sassination and the imprisonments
I which followed, ,and took immediate
steps to insure fair treatment of the
s naturalized citizen. .
'- A Mr.Terrell's report ofthe troubles at
Marsovan is based upon a. verbal state-
d merq hf Mr. Dwight, a leading Amer-
v ican .missionary at CpnstantinopIe, and
f is as: follows: More tha.t'n a, year ,ago
sixteen persons at Mar.ovan received

o President. Tjrcy, .1ad Prof. Riggs of

A Turkish guard was furnished at the,
L request' of Mr. Terrell to protect the.
American families from the assassins'.,
Mr. Dwight considers this guard suffi-
cient to protect the missionaries at the

plied for additional force. Mr. Terrell
adds that the, revolutionists at, Marso-

From' the Militara-W~oehenblatt ', l
Some very interesting experiments e
a~s 'to the utility of w~ar-dogs were made i
in oin~ection -witlh the Dresden interna-
ti~onal d~og show .on the race-course near
Dresden. A company was supposed to t
be covering1 some-tran sports of h~orse~s 1
against' an imaginary enemy, rn order
to .do this more 'effectually, some' non- "
commissioned officers', accompanied by t
trained dogs, were sent forward to
watch the. approach of the \enemy.
They advancedd 'about a mite and a s

quarter, while keeping up cpmmuni- t
cation with the company by means of n
the dogs. In this way the .company
was kept fully informed, as to the move- ,
ments of the enemy, iand, could stop, the
transport of horses in good time before"l r
the ,attack. The same do gs were also m
used for carrying ammunition to the t
firing lin-, each dog being provided for e
this purpose with, a kind of saddle, hold- c
ing 300 cartridges. -The animals will go ty
along the lines, stopping in front of b
every mean, who takes the 'number of g
cartridges, he. requires. When the ama- i
munition is exhausted,, the dog will. n
hurry back to receive a fresh supply,
and thereupon resume ,the distribution. (0
The dogs are -also trained to find 'the

This was discussed among other

"Kindly wire me .the grounds upor

(By Associated Press.) \
- ., Cambridge, Md., Aug. 15.-The Re-
3 publican State Convention met at noon
to-day, and nominated the following
ticket: For Governor, Lloyd Lowndes;
for Attorney General, Harry M. Cla-
baugh; for Comptroller, L. E. Dennis.
The platform is confined to State, is-
sues. and opens with a demand for a
reassessment of property. '.'
Hon. Lloyd Lowndes. the nominee for
Governor, is extensively interested in
the commercial affairs of Maryland. He
was educated as a lawyer, but took up
mercantile pursuits, and is now at-the
head of a. number of banks, mining
companies, etc.. at Baltimore and Cum-,
berland. He served in the Forty,-third
Congress as a strong supporter of the
Grant administration. Wh,le in Con-
yess he stood against tjhe Civil Rights

cessfully accomplished at 2 o'clock.
about 2.0.1 1)people were present and:

This is the only N-,i,\'ernnient dock
that will admit the new battleships:. The
Simpson timber doks at the Norfolk,

Merida, Yucatan, Aug. 15.--There. is
great enthusiasm here over the inten-

fr~om the ,City of Mexico, to OCCUpy-
Baclar-with a strong force, of troops.

The Santa, Cruz Indians. are, filled with
dismay, because they now realize their
,depredations .are to be severely pun-
ished. Many of those Indians are flee-=
ing to Belize to accept British hospi-
tality among the people, who for many
years have been furnishing them arms,
and ammunition. It is not believed that
the leaders of the Indians can^-bring
over 600 into -the field against the Mexi-

now employed in cutting dye wood in
Honduras, will return to take up arms
at Baclar directly the troops succeed,

Now that farmers have shown that
Florida soil will produce all kinds of
vegetables, they should keep constantly
at work. Midsummer has passed, and
the time to prepare the land to set out
seed beds, and to make all preparations
for fall and winter crops Is at hand. A
monopoly of the pnarket means good
profits, and during the fall and winter
this State. is the only one in the Union
that can send vegetables to the North.
A possible early frost is all that can
prevent this. But the chances are that
eXtreme cold weather will not come
until after the vegetables shall, have
been gathered. The risk, therefore, is
small compared to the benefit to be
gained. A. F. Boyce, a farmer of ex-
perience, in a letter to the Agricul-
turist, says that now is the'time to be-
gin active work in the garden. He
planted turnips on July 19, following
with celery seed, snap beans, and other
vegetables, and results were good. Cab-
bage seed should be planted this month,
in order that the heads may be fit for
use by the end of November. Cabbage
and celery seed should be planted urnder
partial shade, where a good circulation
of air will pass over the young plants,
and should be frequently watered.
When the seed beds shall be under way,
and early plantings shall have been

V "tte -.thint ti'eground should' not be
:,'left to'6, loose about the seeds, or roots
of plants' when transplanting is done;
'and to obviate the danger of this, a
due compression 'of the surrounding
earth is' needful. Thousands of patches
are planted each year that never show
aught for the labor bestowed, simply
0rom a lack of. proper attention to this
point. Plants cannot be coaxed to
grow unless they are given a proper
start. Prepare the land a week or ten
days before planting, so that in th'e
Interval the ground may become set-
tled. Planting early ,in the summer
season is advisable, in' order that the
plants may get the benefit of the rains,
for it often occurs that a long spell of
dry weather comes about midautumn.
Summer or early plants are occasion-
ally cut down by untimely frosts, but,
notwithstanding this, to go forward
with the planting of all 'such garden
crops" as have a fair chance of es-
caping damage by too severe cold is
best. To illustrate this point: To plant
peas after September 15 might do, but
to plant beans after that date would
not be safe, unless In the lower part
of the State."
Mr. Boyce says that at the time of
'writing, July' 26, he had planted tur-
nips, cabbage, and' onion peeds, and
v was then engaged in making ready for
snap beans, "beets, celery seed, lettuce,
spinach, parsley, squash, and cucum-
bers, all of "which may be planted until
the end of -this month. He considers
that, the extreme cold of last winter will
be hardly likely to recur this winter,
apd that. he who fears to plant lest
it should come is not wise, and does not
deserve success.

The employment of convicts on the
extension of .the" Florida East" .Coast
Railway is, attracting the attention of
all who have: the interest of the free
? laboring man' at. heart. The cQnvicts
are usually employed by Senator Bailey
in phosphate mines. 'Recently many of
the mines closed for an indefinite
time. Mr. Bailey, who must pay the
-state 'for the issue of the convicts,
is forced to find .employment, for them
'elsewhere. As they must be. kept in
the State, he is compelled to look with-
in its borders forsuch employment, and
has -hired them to Contractor McLain
.of the construction department of the
railroad extension. In this manner the
State convicts come"in contact with free
labor.' Whether or not the convict sys-
tern is a good one is notlthe question at
issue. The people. bave decided that
', they wish the institution, and the only
question to be discussed is -as to how the
convicts shall be employed. In selling
their services Mr. Bailey appears to be
fully within the law, and after that
little remains to be said. '
The Melbourne Times, commenting
on the subject, very wisely remarks:
"A great-many people have expressed
.surprise at the fact that eighty-two
convicts have been sent to Lake Worth
+to wo7rkl on thei newx E7 ast rCroat. T.Inr-"

perpetrated upon the peol]Me everywhere.
In the South, in the effortse of unaseru-

article to take the place of Sim mohs
Liver Regulator. the Red Z. It's worse
than robbery. It takes the money of
the sick and afflicted, and gives in return
preparations as unlike Simmons Liver
Regulator as Is the character of sueh de-

Save your money and protect your

and brought long life to many a sufferer

add to this a power of taxation in their
hands over the people without thehiB
consent; when they obtain control of .
the political power of the State, they.
descend from the role of benefactors
and become the enemies of the people
of liberty, of republican government,
and main pillars of that bridge of sighs
over which the hopes of mankind have
ever passed, only to perish in sorrow
and despair.
With these things I charge the cor-
poration rule party, Its owners, its sup-
porters, its aiders and abettors in any
and every form, and this issue do I
make with them. Their Legislature
in large part. not elected, not
chosen by the people, but false-
ly certified under a fraudulent
election law, and really appointed by
the non-resident owners of the corpora-
tions and the corporation-rule party, j
met last April and adjourned at the
time limited, leaving the fraudulent
election law in force, and leaving the
people of the State at a time of un-
precedented calamity without a sin-
gle measure for their relief.
It would have been not a difficult
task to have assisted me in my efforts
in the United States Senate to use the
public credit, both State and Federal,
in such shape and form as would give
employment, money, and relief to our.-,
people in the construction of public
works and buildings of usefulness and
necessity, and creating a financial sys-
tem which would enable our fruit and
vegetable growers, farmers, and phos-
phate miners, our lumbermen and mer-
chants to obtain ton easy terms the
money to replant, cultivate, and work
their groves, farms aand mines, and fur-
nish them a profitable market by com-
pelling the corporations to. transport
them and their products at reasonable.
and cheap .rates, and repay the 5 per,
cent promised the orange-growers years
ago. But instead of this the time was [
devoted to a consideration of the means
by which the power of the corporation-t
rule party should be perpetuated and[
the white people of the State be placed ',
under the colored, -as witness the Jack-
sonville election and the, State law 'as ;
passed by the Legislature.
Let us rise in our might and effec-
tually put down these conditions, with,
justice, with moderation, but with firm- j
ness let the people assert their power..
Our State of Florida and our Ueople
have everything necessary for pros-
perity and for happiness.
It only ,needs that we shall break the
chains with which we are bound and
make law for the people's benefit and
not for the corporations and their for,
eign owners, and we shall havre abun-
darnce for our people and money for.
all our needs.

I shall be free after this date to,
meet the people at such other places,
as they give me notice of, until De-

lands of Southern Britain. Man has
been the unconscious, as well as the
conscious, instrument in the whittling
down of animal size-a result which
can be detected almost immediately af-
ter his appearance on the scene.
The destruction of the gigantic ani-
mals of the later eras by the early
hunting races of mankind is the least
part played by nmn in competition with
existing animal forms. Hunting man
does not, as a rule, increase in numbers.
It was the gradual absorption by high-
er races than the cave dwellers of the
greater part of the natural feeding
grounds available for the support of
the great herbivorous creatures, either
wholly, by cultivation, or partly by oc-
cupation, hunting and the support of
domestic animals, and transferred to
the sole use of the one dominant race,
would account sufficiently for the dis-
appearance or degeneration in size of all
the larger forms. The Bos taurus,
whose enormous skeletons/,are in the
British Museum, and the extinct bison,
both. of which were immensely larger
than their modern representatives, the
wild cattle and the European aurochs,
are instances of creatures which 'are
known to have degenerated since the
appearance of man.
Restriction of range and of feeding
ground consequent on human encroach-
ment are the only obvious explanations
of this fact; and a similar loss of the
necessaries of gigantic existence, due
to other agencies, but identical in its
effects, must account for the disap-
pearance or degeneration of species,
more ancient than the human race.

education, and by the- traditions of a
centuries the enemies and opponents of ]
Government by the people. They have c
found in legislative franchises of rail-
way incorporations, which carry with
them a power of taxation of the people
often procured by fraud and bribery,
and in the watered stock by the power
of issuing bonds, the convenient means 0
of vesting all political power in Ve
privileged class; and to this end this a
corporation-rule party is now directing
all Its energies. They have established
at great cost, a corporation newspa-
per, and have subsidized other news-
papers to exalt their own creatures in
the public regard, and to defame, dis-
parage, and vilify all men who have
the courage to be true to the people and
to the Democratic Party and its prin-
The corporation rule party is com-
posed of a few men, some of them sub-
jects of Kings and foreign States, own-
ers of the bonds of the United States
and of public and private corporations,
created under legislative franchises,
with an unlimited power of taxation of
our people. They are organized to
control the political parties of our coun-
try, both the old political organization
and the new, and the prospective ones,
by the purchase of men of influence,
both with money and making them their
paid attorneys, and by supplying them
freely with large sums to buy votes in
conventions and elections, and to pro-
cure false returns, and the establish-
ment in power of a few men, a privil-
eged class, controlling all the powers of
Government for their own enrichment
and for the impoverishment and op-

porate franchises granted to them for
public purposes and not for the control
of elections.
They have even corrupted some of
the professed ministers of the gospel,
and made thepi their emissaries-to per-

people, and fixing upon them and their
families the galling yoke of a cruel pov-

S uth Kensington, by inspecting the
t o large iguana lizards which have
Jist arrived at the zoo, says the Lon-
dbn Spectator. The result is not likely
tb aid scientific or unscientific inqui-
ri es' to any great degree. The iguano-
din. was so named from the resem-
blance of its teeth-the first part of the
skeleton discovered-to those of the
iuana lizard; and though this happy
collectiono, which occurred to Mr.
Slutchbury when Dr. Mantell was
arearhing the drawers of the Hunter-
4'n museum for teeth resembling some
which h he had discovered in the Tilgate
forest, served to show that they belong-
ed to some monstrous form of vegeta-
ble-eating lizard, there is not much
else in the form of the living iguana
t) explain the mode of existence of
a terrestrial lizard thirty feet long,
'Which fed on leaves like a giraffe, and
*alked or hopped on its hind legs like
!gigantic kangaroo..
The iguanqodon was one among many
huge extinct reptiles, some feeding
wholly on vegetables, some on fish,
while some were wholly carnivorous.
So much can be gathered from the
structure of their teeth. But this
scarcely explains their place and, func-
tion on the earth when they lived;
neither does it account for their enor-
mous dimensions, the gradual decrease
in the size of somewhat similar crea-
tures of to-day, or for the total disap-
pearance of the greater number of
types. The circumstances of the dis-
covery of the iguanodons, though inter-
esting, throw little light on their habits,
though one of the most interesting
"finds" of recent days, in the eyes of
the paleontologists. The character and
probable size of the creatures had been
accurately predicted by Sir Henry
Owen from fragments discovered by
Dr. Mantel in the Weald of Sussex,. But
in, 1878, in a clay bed, 350 yards deep, in
'the workings of the Bernissat Colliery
in Belgium, the skeletons of twenty-
,nine iguanodons were found together.
It was not until seven years later that
two were mounted in the courtyard of
the museum at Brussels; the first which
has been seen in England is' only now
seen at 'South Kensington. The struc-
ture of the head and jaws shows that
they had not only teeth adapted for
vegetable feeding, but in all probability
a prehensile tongue and lips, Which ena-
bled them to use their long necks for
browsing on the tops of trees, just as
the giraffe does' But the discoveries
of Prof. Marsh in the "bad lands" of
North America showlthat side by side
with this s"giraffe-lizard" were others
which filled the places or the carnivor-
i ous land animals of our day,'or haunt-
ed rivers and swamps, like the modern
crocodiles. Others assumed bat-like
forms, and were able to fly. Yet they
in no case developed into higher forms,
.or presented any other than the com-
min features of reptile structure mod-
ified for the part which they, had to
play in life. Their function was limited
to that of "assuming some of the char-
ics presented byanimals much

IHs of the epochs of gigantic animals
were gigantic. Side.'by side with the
iguahodon and .its fish-eating relations,
the mososaurus and megalosarus, there
lived small quadrupeds, fish, dragon
flies, and other creatures not remarka-
'ble, for size.. But whether they as-
sumed the characteristics of modern
and more. advanced species, as the car-
ni~vorous lizards did.those of the car-
nivorous mammals, the fish-eating liz-
ards those of the whales and sea lions
and the leaf-eating iguanodons .those
of the giraffe, or were extinct mem-
bers of existing species, such as the
monster tortoises, the mammoths, and
straight-tusked elephants, or the Bos
urus and Irish elk of Great Britain,

great size is the general concomitant
of great antiquity in early. forms of
living creatures. The fact is proved
by their skeletons, and admits of nO
question. Yet each monstrous skeleton
asks a very pertinent one.
The globe was no larger than the
globe is now. There was no more sur-
face space; its natural features were
iprobaly on no larger scale than we see
them to-day. The trees and grasses of
the "reptile era" were not more luxu-
riant 6r of greater size than they are
now. No fossil tree has-been found
as large as the "big trees" of Califor-
nia, and the "mares-tails" and tree-
ferns which grew in the. marshes and
on the river banks were not more nu-
tritious than the plants which form the
food of the hippopotamus /of to-day.

even ,the Indian rhinocerous, but mem-

gregarious tribes. The food necessary
for the support of the noncarnivordus
species was found, probably, not in a
richer vegetation than now exists in
Tropical forests, or in an extent of the
area of such vegetation beyond what is
now found in the tropical and temper-
ate zones, but in the practical undis-
puted possession Which these creatures
enjoyed of the whole of the earth's ,sur-
face on which their food would grow.
As higher forms of life successively
became dominant and took the place of
those which had, preceded them,, the
gigantic size remained fairly constant.

people in different parts of the State.
I shall canvass every, county in the
State next year, commencing early in
the spring, as a candidate for re-elec-
tion to the Senate by the people.
In the meantime I will meet such of
them as may wish to confer with me as
to publlo affairs, at the times and places
stated in this notice.
It Is not my purpose to make speeches
or engage in public discussion at this
time, unless specially desired; my ob-
ject is to consider with all who may
wish to do so the political condition In
>ur State, and the necessity of organi-
zation, to prevent the denial of the
right of suffrage to our people, the
overthrow of the Democratic govern-
ment in the State, and the control of
our elections by, fraudulent conven-
tions, false counts, bribery, and corrupt
practices. The corporation-rule party
has deprived the people of their right
to vote, and has taken away from
them free homes on the public lands
and fraudulently conveyed them to
private persons and to corporations. It
has nullified the homestead laws of the
United States and of the State of Flor-
ida, and has deprived the people of all
control over their own affairs, and es-
tablished the government of aliens and
foreigners over them. It now seeks to
secure further control of the people by
reviving the angry controversy of the
races and the dominance of the colored
element over the whites, not by their
votes, but by counting them as corpora-
tion-rulevoters under the name of Dem-
crats. It has suppressed the will of the
Democratic people in conventions, and
denied them the right to vote In elec-
tions by secret and open bribery of both
white and colored people.- In brief, I
wish to consider, with such persons as
may allow it, the most effective means
of restoring to the people the govern-
ment oe the State under Democratic
principles and policies, against the
shameless and corrupt men who main-
tain a newspaper controlled by persons
who* have no regard for truth or de-
cency of conduct; who, It is believed by
the people of the State, have sold them-
selves to defame and misrepresent all
men who are true to the people and to
the Democratic Party, and to place in
power men who falsely claim to be
Democrats, while they are In fact the
enemies of the Democratic Party and
of the Democratic principles.
The political condition in our State
Is one which gives cause for serious
alarm to all persons who do not believe
in aristocratic and arbitrary govern-
SA N of i-eat wealth, derived
"1.1-n ,. .. franchises,

onmeasures to band
4( .'. togetherr the colored people, and by add-
Ing to them the small minority of the
white people, to suppress the great ma-
jority of the white race. To these they
have added all the corrupt practices of
the reconstruction era. in false counts
and fraudulent returns until the will
of the Democratic people has been and
I Is entirely suppressed.
There is no doubt that ninety-nine
hundredths of the Democratic Party
of the State, and an equal proportion
of the intelligent Republican voters,
and of the Populists, abhor with a
righteous contempt the men who
belong to the corporation-rule party,
and condemn their attempt to steal
into power by purchasing with cor-
poration money delegates to conven-
tions and voters in elections, under the
false pretense that they are Demo
crats, and that it is for the benefit oi
the Democratic Party.. Organizati6r
of the true men of the State, who re-
spect and honor principle and a brav
and manly devotion to government b3
t lhe people, will bury in the grave of ar.
everlasting contempt the corporation-
*rule party, its newspaper, its Benedici
Arholds, and its advocates and sup-
porters, who, to secure political powei
to. the persons owning thae corporations
/of the ,State, are seeking again to review
the war of the races, and to place th
white people of the .State under th
control of the colored population, lee
by men who profess for this purpose
to be Democrats, although heretofore
known as "extreme and radical Repub.
licans, and as extreme and .radica:
Democrats, now bound together in ar
unnatural and unholy alliance which
in some counties, proscribes the whit
people who do not belong to. the cor

poration-rule party from holding omce
and suppresses their votes by count-
ing the colored people for the corpora-
tion candidates. This shameless cor.
1 porite oligarchy which dares, unter
the cover of a few white men claiming
to be Democrats, to defy and tramp..
on the white people of the State, mus
be, taught that the people of Florida
of all political parties, are the. loya
(supporters and defenders of Govern-
menf by the- people;. and that we, and
our wives and children, cannot be made
slaves by a few men who expend the
money derived from the legislative
:" franchises. granted to them to corrup
the exercise of political power and
deprive the people of all control over
the Government of their State.
,Our people, by a great majority, be
long to the Democratic Party, 'vtna
believe in, Democratic principles and
policies. Our organization, therefore
tnust be as Democrats, -and in the
Democratic Party, but none the less
may we claim the support of all citi
zens of all politicalparties to pnite with
us in defending the, Government of the
people and preserving political power
in their hands; and in bringing to the
bar of justice, before an outraged peo
ple, those who are seeking to over
throw our institutions and to oppress
our people.
To preserve this free Government o
the people, which was achieved by ou
forefathers a~t the cost- of\ blood and
self-sacrifice, which affords the only
hope to tlhe people of betcvring tfe!I
condition a-gainst the attack of its ene
mies in our midst, will require our mos
\ energetic efforts. As Democrats, believe

Party, and in the Government by th
people and for the people, we are bound

Range of Prices Was Chiefly Within
Fractioff TLimits--Close Was Firm,
and Gen\ 4 Higher-Bond Trading
Was ti-uiert-with Sales at $1,8412,000.
(By Associated Press.) -
New York, 1N. Y., Aug. 15.-The share spec-
ulation to-day was without special feature.
The tone of the market was better than yester-
day, but the trading was dull unto stagnation.
The frost scare having subsided there was some
covering in the grangers, and the fact that
no further engagements, of gold for shipment
to Europe were announced, helped to strenrgthenf
the general market. The easier tone of the
sterling exchange market was also a favorable
influence. The movement of prices was very
narrow, not exceeding fractional, limits, ex-
cept in few instances. The market closed firm
and generally higher.
Bonds, were quiet with sales of $1,842,000.

in California, the deficiency being
greatest In North-Central Montana.
In the Lower Missouri and Upper Mis-
sissippi Valleys and thence eastward

tinues backward; and in the Dakotas its
general condition is not good.

WeatherandCropsin the Cotton B~elt
The past week was generally slightly
warmer than Usual over the entire cat-
S -" ton belt. save in NorthweStern Arkan-
sas, Where it was slightly cooler. The
excess in temperature was greatest
from Central Tenniessee eastward, over
the' Carolinas, averaging from -2 to 3
degrees daily. I 1
The rains of the wee]k were generally
unevenly distributed, and were heav-
iest in portions of the eastern half of
the belt, and only in excess of a nor-
mal weekly fall in localities in the west-
ern half. But little rain fell in Texas
Northwest Louisiana, a. goodly portior
,of Arkansas. Tennessee, and Mississip-
pi. and in Northern Alabama.
Cotton is suffering for rain in a great-
er portion of Texas, but the dr.y

Upon retiring, he made a courtly

pointing to the Treasury bench, he
shouted, "Judas". This was repeated
four times. Arriving at the door, he

Asbury Park, N. J., Aug. 15.-There
was a. quiet, civil marriage here to-
day of which the principals were Cham-
pion James J. Corbett and Josie Tay-
lor of Omaha, better known as "Vera
Stanwood", the name under which she
figured as corespondent in the recent
suit for divorce that was granted to
Mrs. Ollie Lake Corbett.
Justice of the Peace John A. Borden
'entered the Corbett cottage at noon. He

Park; P. F. Buckalow, paymaster ,.,fr the
Consolidated Traction Company: Jo.s-e:ph"
Corbett, the brother of the champion,
who assisted him in his 'recent restau-
rant linpleaxantnes-: with Fitzslmmo,,ns:
Alice BrOw'h, the colored: cok,and two,:
newspaper men.
After Justice Borden had pronounced
them man and wife- congratulations,
were received. The couple left an hour
afterward foq Buffalo and Niagra Falls,
where they wll stao [': .ttuen, days,
after which Corbett will return here
and begin training for his match with
Fitzsimmons. "
It would have been illegal for the.
pair to, marry in New York, for the de-
cree of divorce pade in that State de-
barred the pugilist from remarrying in
the lifetime of his first wife. Legal
authorities say that they would not be
recognized by the law as mnan and wife
while living( in New York.

HIv as lrtls 'with:the usual formali-
,tis, 9and the Queeti's speech was read
Siby. -,the 1i-ord 'Chancellor, Baron Hals-
ibury, as follows:
"'My Doridp::and( CjGentlemen: The com-
n.Vaaitiotts 'whiDh I receive from for-
(d tgn: powers assure me of the continu-
',ancecof lthrdgoi~d-will. I am happy to
sa.y '.that .,o international complication
.as arigel.i tn any quarter calculated to
endanger ,!the .peace of Europe. The
"war ?between "China and Japan, which
was tIf .progries at the opening of the
laest session, !has been brought to a
c-andlusion by a peace which I trust will
endure. oI .-bserved strict neutrality
'du tng the war, and have taken no ac-
tdn .in -respeedt thereto except such as
appeared to ;me likely to be favorable
,to afterrhilnatton of hostilities.
'Idadelply regret to say that the most
.atrocious outrages upon a body of
Engllipth missionaries are, reported
'rom ithe ,province of Fu Kien, in'
'Ctiina. "In-reply to earnest representa-
tions :addressed to the Chinese Gov-
e'rment':by,2my direction,' active teas-
ures, which I trust will prove effective,
are being taken for the punishment of
the murderers, and all persons in any
degree responsible for there crimes.
"The internal troubles which have
brAket out in the Armenian districts
;of Asiatic'Turkey have been attended
with horrors which have moved to'inri-
dignation,the Christian nations of Eu-
,rope generally, and my people espe-'
dially, My Ambassaqor and the Am-
Sbassadors of the- Emperor of Russia
and the President of the French Re-
_public, acting together, have sug-
gested to the Government of the Sultan
reforms which, in ;their opinion, are
necessary to prevent a recurrence of
disorder. These proposals are now be-
ing considered,'by the Sultanf, and, I am
anxiously awaiting his decision.",
The speech corncludes with reference
to the incorporation of Bechuanaland
into Cape Colony. I I
Coinmaons Asked To Procrastinate. r
The speech to the commons merely
says that the estimates for the service
of the year which was not voted at the
last session will be laid before them.
SThe second portion of tle speech says:
'' "My Lor'ds and Gentlemen: 'At this

other session the consideration of any
