HIS NOMINATION TOR GOVERNOR
IS A1IS0LUTEI.Y CERTAIN.
DEMOCRATIC GONYIMTION AT SMTON
Without the Aid of a Quay to
CONFUSION OVER CONTESTED SEAT3.
Ex'PMlBMsler Hardly Elwted Permanent
ObairmanAa AdmiraWa Platform
Adapted Sore of Vlelory.
Scbantox, Pa , July 2 AUenvynln
storm broke over tho city at an early
hour this morning ami kopt up until 10
o'clock. The delegates, the workore
and those people who generally follow
a political convention and who have
been In this city propatlng for today's
Democratic State Conrcntton remained
In the hotels gossiping and working for
their respective candidates.
When State Chairman Klsner entered
the convention hall nt 10 o'clock the
galleries were sparsely occupied, and
less than ten delegates were In their
scats. But tho hall filled up shortly
nflor, and by 10:15 It was crowded.
Chairman Klsncrcalled tho convention
to order at 10:80. Secretary Nead read
tho call, after which the roll of dele
cntcs was called. Everything wont
smoothly until Blair County was
reached. There Is a contest In that
county, and tho Pnttlson men wore
placed on the roll. One of the contes
tants, Sir. Landls, demanded to be hoard,
and said that the names of the Paulson
men named from Dlalr were not the
delegates. He was promptly called to
order by the chairman, aud
a fcnsB or cotircMtur exsuhd.
IIImcb and yells from the galleries,
mingled with the shouts of the contes
tants, whllo Chairman KItncr pounded
with his pavol. Order was at length
restored, and the Blair men woreseated.
The sentiment this morning is
slronsly In Patlison's favor and his ad
hcrents ato confident that he will re
crlvc tho nomination on tho flrst ballot.
The Wallace people have abandoned
thtlr claim of 105 delegates for their
candidate and say the result will depend
upoti tho field, which they claim Is
stronger than Pattison.
The result of the light on permanent
chairman is regarded as sure to
IIKCIDK TI1R CONTK0T,
for the nomination for Governor. Hon.
Eckley II. Coxe of Luzerne was choeon
temporary chairman, and in his address
he said that men of all classes through
out the country, worklugmen as wellas
business men, were trembling over the
condition of affairs at Washington. He
added that llepubllcans as well as
Democrats wore concerned over the
situation, and predicted n snbetautiai
success for Democracy in Pennsylvania
next fall. 3Ir. Coxe will probably be
the permanent presiding officer of the
convention. The appointment of the
various committees occupied considera
ble time ami a nomination will not be
reached until a late hour.
After the Blair men had been seated
Chairman Kiaaer said that the contest
would be referred to the committee on
credentials. It was decided to refer all
resolutions to the committee on resolu
tions without debate. After appointing
the various committees the convention
took a recess until 2 o'clock.
Afier receas the committee oa eon
tested seats made their report giving
lVTTOK v MAJORITY
of the disputed votes. H.t-Poetmaatar
Harrity was elected penaaaeet chair
was, which is also a Paulson victory.
The following Is a synopsis of
Among other things, the platform
reeammeada a plank favoring ballot re
form and the calling of a Coaatitu
ttooal Coaveatioa for the removal of
the marked-ballot clause from the Con
atitutioa. A stroag tariff reform plank
Is incorporated, calling for the removal
of the tariff from raw material; local
tax reform is advocated, and a declara
tion made for tke equalisation of taxes
for ecunly, utuaieipal aad towaetito
purposes, in outer that uajuat discrimi
nation against land values in favor of
certain kinds of personal property made
by txistisg laws may be corrected aad
that the farmer may be relieved of the
double tax os the value of Us farm ami
the principal of the mortgage that may

that the law requiring the surplus in
the State Treasury to be la vested in
State and United States bonds be ob
served aad executed.

to indorsed ami compared wish Har
rison's. Such a policy is famed in the
coUage of silver as wfll keep both gold

platform declares the right of all youths
to be apprenticed to a trade without dls
ttnetkaj, except as to merit.
There is a plank deprecating aad de-ffi-jpfpg
the ungual a mhuI tftn meat of

The platform concluded a follows:

PntLADRLrnu, July 3. A 21mm'
special from Scranton says: "The late
Indications are that Pattison will be
nominated, probably on the first ballot.
The tide, which has been running In
his direction since It became apparent
that Delamator would be nominated by
the Republicans, Is stronger than ever.
"Wallace has done everything In his
power tostcm It, to little purpose.
"Ho has had the politicians shouting

should be once more made the standard

the delegates pledged to his support, a
groundswell of popular sympathy that

It very hard to strive against. Had his
candidacy been announced at an earlier
date there would have been no question
as to the result.
"Unless there shall be a prolonged
struggle for advantage In the organiza

Uenaral lilw, editor of the Fort
Scott JrVnflor, who Is greatly InWrwled
in MiAnwippi Illver improvements, left
for his home In Kansas today. To a
Critic reporter last evening he ex
pressed some views upon the Missis
sippi Hirer improvement ami other
"MlHlsftippl lltver legislation," said
the General, "It not in as good shape as
I would like to have lt; still, perhaps,
the ft leads of the river should be satis
fied under all the circumstances. One
thing is sure, and that Is, there It a much
better feeling In the public mind rela
tive to the river, and far more friendli
ness, became tho public have now more
knowledge about the river than evor be
fore. My opinion Is that at the next
session wo should have a straight levee
bill for 6,000,000 for levees to control
the Hood waters. And It Is further my
opinion that It wc don't get it the
FAULT WILL ltlWT
with the Congressional delegation from
the ltler States in not doing their
whole duty and working together as
one man for the bill. It is "juit and
right that such an appropriation should
be made, and If the friends of the river
ptdt together it will be made. The
money lost to the public by five railway
compnules having their roads washed
away V-y flood would relmlld all the
levees. The damage dono to property
would build them twlee over."

KAVIDLV HKtXfl lU'HIK!)
"I have spent most of my time in
Louisiana aud Mississippi for three
years past. Three years ago I was a
firm believer that such legislation was
necessaty. I as firmly believe that It
would now be very unwise. I do not
believe that lt will accomplish what the
llepubllcans lu Congress, pressing the
measure, think It will accompiUb. I
am ccttain it will prove a boomeranx to
the patly and therefore I think the title
ef the bill should be 'An act l dtatron

In my Judgment, it will defeat Cole

Arkansas, one or two members in St.

without adding single new Repub

"This is the way I honestly see it.
Besides. I regard the bill as wholly

A better feeling and a better condition
of things has been rapklly growing
throughout I lie South between the

foiee our courts will be prostituted for
evil purposes the Lord knows they are
bad enough now and the South will
again be overrun with political scoun
drels, who will stir up hatred and ani
mosity among the leas informed colored
people, and the Southern States will
have the infamies of carpet bag rule
over again. If it is a good law, why
didn't they mike it general and require
supervision at every polling place in the
United States. If constitutional law,

THE EIGHT:HOUR LAW.
THE FEDERATION OF LABOR ADOPTS
RESOLUTIONS REGARDING IT.
A l'tottorttl Hill Which wilt Cover All
tho I'nlnU nnil Slnho I tin lUcoiillon
of the Lnw Mnmlutory.
At a meeting ot the Federation of
Labor of this city last night the eight
hour iptestlon was taken up ami the
various utcaeutes now (lending before
Congress discussed. The Wade bill
does not meet the approbation of labor
meu as amended, while a bill In'ro
duced by Representative Connell Is
what the Federation desires to !ccome
In advocating its passage the Federa
Hon does not put Itself on record as
favoring the contract system as provided
In the bill. Its platform Is opposed to
contract work, but so long as It Is In
vogue lt desires the Eight Hour law lo
be equally applicable to that character
Neither does the Federation regard
the present law as defective, for It be
lieves It can ami should be enforced,
but the measure which is now urged
ft ill better meet the demands of organ
The following resolntlons were passed :
Wberess House bill No. IU0, "to enforce
the Right -Hour law on Government prem
iss,' wtikh hat been favorably reported
from the I'ommittee on Labor atut Is now
upon tlie House ealeudar, would wholly
fail lo carry out the eigUl-iiour principle as
understood and indorsed by tbe organised
worklogmeu of tbe country for wore than
twenty years, and would legaliie the
flagrant violations o( the preaeot taw
agalust which laboring men nave repeat
eoly aad earnestly protestwl; and
hereas House tail No. rvi, introduced
by Hapresentatlve Conaetl o( Nebraska,
and referred to the Committee on Labor in
April last, would, in the Judgment ot this
body, compel the executive officers o( the
Oovernweat to enforce the Klgbt-Hour law
ot June 35, 1W, In accordance with its hit
ter aad spirit, and would be In aecord wtth
tbe tetttimeet of organised labor through
out the country; therefore,
SciohtiL That the Federation of Labor
Unions of tbe District of Columbia re
spectfully but earnestly recommends the
passage of House bill No. 79t, wtth cer

Idaho, the Gem of the Mountains,
can now count the bouts whkh will
elapse ere she lakes leave forever of the
Territorial condition ami assumes for
all time tbe dignity and the privileges
of Statehood. The bill authorising her
to take her place tn the sisterhood ot
States, on an tqwal footing with the
ohlcr lmt no mora worthy Common
wealths, was speedily posted try the
Senate, and, a It has already gone
through the House, only awaits the sig
nature of Ihe President to become a
It Is a strange commentary on the
mutability of men's opinions that in the
1'ortynlnth Congress. 19S5'8T, a bill
passed both Houses, without oppo
sition, DMMKHH8RI.VG IDAHO
and annexing the northern part to the
Territory of Washington. The bill
reached the President three days before
adjournment and failed for lack of his
Mgnntme. The Delegates from Idaho
and Washington In that Cotirrew were
both Democrats and worked together
for the paemge of the bill. The Legis
lature of Idaho had memorialised Con
gress for tho division, and the people
of northern Idaho had petitioned for It
almost aolklly. Had It reached Presi
dent Cleveland ten days earlier than lt
did. undoubtedly he would have slgueil
It and Idaho would not be upon the map
ot the United States to-day.
In the Fiftieth Congress. 18?T '9,
Air. Ptctl T. Dubois took his neat at
Delegate from Idaho. Mr. Voorhees
was still representing Washington. Tbe
House wm Democratic, awl naturally
instmpalhy with Delegate Voorhees.
In the Senate, then, m now, Hermbll
can, N-nalor Stewart of Nevada was en
gaged In an effort to have tie southern
part of Idaho annexed to Nevada, a
Slate which needs population sadly.
He. of course, favored tbe prolect to
divide th Territory ami ihe giving of
the notthern peri to Washington In
order to secure the southern for his own
Thus Delegate Dubois, who wanted
Idaho to remain as It was, territorially,
had his work cut out for him. Hut be
is not a man to be daunted by obstacles,
lie went Into the struggle with all the
vim and vigor that characterises him.
The contest lasted during the entire long
session of the PlfUelfa Congress. It was
WOJt AT LAUT
by Mr. Dubois through (duck, patience
ami persletence. Congress adjourned,
leaving Idaho still intact. The peoote
of Idaho appreciated his labors in their
behalf, and returned him to the Fifty
At tbe time ot the election in 1$M
not even the most sanguine person
dreamed that the question ot the dis
memberment of Idaho and the annexa
tion of the parts to Xevada and Wash
ington would be dead. Xor was it
hoped that the Mormon problem, so far
m Idaho was concerned, would be
solved and the Mormons be under con
trol. That united Idaho would be ad
mitted Into the Union of States so soon
as li9o was not even thought of or sug
gested. That all these things have
come to pass Udue in part to the ability,
tbe discretion and tbe untiring energy of
Tbe Mormons of Idaho are numerous
and strongly attached to the dogmas ot
their religion, tbe more especially poly
gamy. They were regarded there, as
in Utah, a menace to good government,
and their supremacy would have been
an effectual bar to Statehood.

When the present Congress aasembled
Mr. Dubois took prompt steps looking
toward the admbwion of Idaho. Per
haps the highest tribute to his tact and
skill as a legislator line in the simple
fact that Senator Stewart, from an ad
vocate of th division of Unbx and the
annexation of a part of it to hm own

friends of the admission of undivided

further fact thai the people of north

years, hate been, during this Congress,
