giving us ample room to place and display the goods

lVorkinenien's State Convention.
San Francisco, May 17th.— The Work
ingmen's State Convention met at 10 a. M. at
Humboldt Hall, and was called to order by
H. W. Smith, Vice-President of the party.
Oae hundred and forty-three members were
present, including a full delegation from the
city, and delegates from Marin, Sonoma,
Napa, Solano, Sacramento, San Joaquin,
Alameda, Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, Santa
Clara, and some other counties. .
. ' A Committee on Credentials was appointed,
which reported at half-past 2. i
The report included several recommenda
tions, one of which was that in accordance
with the action of the San Diego Club the
Los Angeles delegation should be permitted
to cast the vote of San Diego ; also that any
delegates present from any county, ward or
precinct should be entitled to cast the vote in
default of a full representation.
A long wrangle occurred over these recom
mendations, which was finally settled by
adopting the report as regarded credentials,
and leaving the other recommendations for
Nominations for temporary officers being
in order, J. H. Mal'ou, of Oakland, Blaikie
Pilkington, of Santa Cruz, J. B. Pond, of
Napa, and J. J. McCallion, of San Francisco,
were placed in nomination. The first ballot
stood: McCallion 3B, Pilkington 3s, Pond 3o,
Mailon 9. Mailon withdrawn. Second bal
lot : McCallion 40, Pilkington 39, Pond 31.
Pond and McCallion withdrew in favor of
Pilkington, whose election was wide unan
On taking his seat the Chairman addressed
the meeting briefly, referring to the impris
onment of Kearney as a move in the interest
of the election of Grant to the Presidency,
and holding that Kearney and the party were
all the stronger for the abuse heaped upon
them, to which the Convention responded
with three cheers for Kearney. "
Messrs. McCallion, Pond and Mailon were
elected Vice-Presidents by acclamation, and
John J. Condon temporary Secretary.
The Chair appointed a Committee on Per
manent Organization and Order of Business
two from each Congressional District and one
at large — as follows :
First District— Walter Gallagher and P.
Harrington. Second District — F. H. Jewett
and Dr. Truesdell. Third District — J. S.
McCue and A. A. CddelL Fourth District
J. C. Clark and S. A. Waldron. At large—
J. J. Kenney.
Also a Committee on Platform and Reso
lutions, similarly constituted, as follows :
First District — J. G. Days and S. G. Far
rell. Second — R. Johnson and J. H. Red
stone. Third— W. G. Swazey and P. W.
McDonough. Fourth — 0. A. Grimmer and
D. M. Graham. At large— . W. Smith.
Adjourned till 8 p. m.
It is not certain whether or not the Con
vention will appoint delegates to the National
Greenback Labor Convention, its mail ob
ject being to revise the Constitution and or
ganization of the party. The vote on tem
porary Chairman would seem to indicate that
the Greenbackers lacked a majority.
San Francisco, May 17ih.— The Work
ingmen's Convention reassembled at 8 p. m.
The Committee on Platform reported pro
gress, and asked till to-morrow to report.
The recommendations of the Committee on
Credentials were then taken up seriatim and
adopted, with the exception of that-allowing
partial delegations from any county, ward or
precinct to cast the full vote, which was
The Committee on Permanent Organiza
tion and Order of Business rendered majority
and minority reports. The first provided,
first, the election of permanent officers of the
Convention ; secoud, reports of committees ;
third, election of delegates to the National
Greenback and Labor Convention, one from
each Congressional district and two at large ;
fourth, the nomination of Congressmen ;
fifth, the election of a State Central Commit
tee of five members from each Congressional
district. The minority report provided, first,
for the election of permanent oflicers of the
Convention ; second, reports of committees ;
third, election of President, Vice-President,
Secretary and Treasurer of the Working
Both reports were received and the com
J Terry, of San Francisco, moved the adop
tion of the minority report, and accepted an
amendment to take up the various clauses
The first clause was amended to make the
temporary officers permanent and adopted.
The real fight of the Convention then de
veloped itself, it being on the question of a
reorganization of the party, in accordance
with a majority report pioviding for substi
tuting a State Central Committee for Kear
ney as President.
Annix of San Joaquin moved to amend by
the election of a State Central Committee.
A hot debate ensued, Annix, Clark of Santa
Ciara, McCue of Marin, Day of San Fran
cisco and Bodkin of Los Angeles speaking in
favor of the amendments, while White of
Santa Cruz, Redstone of Alameda,
Kidney, Farrell, Smith, Terry and
Moore of San Francisco, McCrillis of
Solano and others warmly opposed it.
It was evident that the Convention was
strongly Kearney by the manner in which the
speeches were received, and on calling the
roll the amendment was rejected ayes 24,
noes 81 all the San Francisco delegates ex
cept live voting in the negative.
The minority report was then adopted as
a whole, and the Convention adjourned till
9A. M. to-morrow. - ,

Fort Lowell. May —The following has just
been received here :
Head ok San Francisco Ritkr, May 9th (via
Apache, May 17th).— I arrived here tonight, and
have traveled hard for three days and two nights in
pursuit of Victurio's Indians; but they are s ill a
day ahead of me. They got away with 30 horses
from here last night. They have, so far, to my
knowledge, killed eleven men, two women and four
children. I have heard of 22 others being killed.
My company- left Silver City on the 4th with
crackers, boon and coffee fur myself and men for
four days. We have since been living on what little
we could get from the citizens. I had to abandon
one of my horses to-day. and all the rest are utterly
worn out. 1 fear 1 will now have to abandon the
chase. Everything now leads to the belief that they
are heading for Stevens' ranch, or somewhere in
that vicinity, to procure ammunition. lam of the
impression that Victorio's band his been largely
reinforced. The country people in that region are
fearfully excited, and whole settlements are being
broken up. MADDEN, Captain.
This confirms the report of the extensive
Indian depredations in New Mexico.
Stevens' Indians report that Tupper and
Kramer have overtaken Victorio near Clif
ton, and have lost one man killed. Madden
had probably joined Tupper or General
Hatch. The latter is due somewhe- lin this
vicinity. He was in San Francisco valley,
nine miles northeast of Bayard, on the llth,
on a large Indian trail numbering about 500.
Kramer fought only a part of the Indians
with Victorio on Ash creek on the 7th. Gen

The New Jersey anil Pennsylvania Forest
Bbicksbcro (N. J.), May 17th.— The fire
is still ' raging about * us. The sun and sky
are obscured, the air stifling and the flames
tierce about Cedar Ridge and Kettle Creek.
The Protestant churches held special prayers
yesterday for rain. At Post's station a barn
and four cattle were burned Saturday night.
The devastation is great in Cumberland and
Atlantic counties. Railroad men report great
ravages among the vineyards of the German
population of the county. The loss is very
Yesterday afternoon the Presidents of Ash
bury Park and Ocean Grove were startled by
the intelligence that the forest fires had
reached their suburbs. Sparks and cinders,
some very large, shot up from the burning
woods. The fire departments of both places
turned out to save the houses from the living
spark*, while citizens successfully fought the
flames in tha woods by back fires, aided by a
change of wind.
It is reported that the flames destroyed
everything in and about Ifammonton, Klwood
and Egg Harbor. The atmosphere is so thick
with smoke it is difficult to breathe. The
vineyards from here to Great Egg Harbor are
totally destroyed. People have given up all
hopes, are" prostrated by their efforts in fight
ing the flames and are helpless with despair.
Bali.ston(N. V.), May 17th.— The Pros
pect Mountain House on Lake George was
destroyed by the forest fires this forenoon.
The fire extends through the forest to Cald
well village, N. J., where the Fort William
Henry Hotel is situated, and fears are enter
tained for the safety of the village. The in
habitants are fighting the fires.

CHICAGO, May 17th.— The returns from all
the counties in the State are now in. Three
came in to-night. Calhoun, with four votes
did not instruct. So far as our information
goes the other two gave Grant two votes,
Blame three and Washburne three. The
Blame Bureau to-night claim that on account
of this unexpected result today, they will
have a clear majority of anti-Grant delegates
in the State Convention, leaving Cook county
out of the question. On the other hand, the
Grant people claim to have a majority of 40
in the Convention, and a majority even if the
Cook county regular delegation is admitted
intact. The fact is that neither side can be
sure of a majority until the pulse of the un
instructed delegates is felt, and that is not
likely to be until the Convention actually
meets and a test vote is had.
Cincinnati, May 17th.— In the M. E. Con
ference much feeling was caused by the con
sideration of a resolution by Dr. Olin, of
Wyoming, reciting the evils of intemperance,
by which one delegate to this Conference had
lost his life through his brother, and inviting
Miss Willard to address the Conference on
temperance ten minutes. Another motion to
admit all such speakers was lost, and the ayes
and noes were called on a motion to strike
out Dr. Olin's preamble. A call of the roll
resulted in voting down Dr. Olin's preamble,
218 to 119, but the motion to have Miss Wil
lard address the Conference was agreed to.

In the closing hour the decline was rapid.
There were several reactions during the day,
but not very decided ones. The bulls seemed
to be completely routed. ■
Bret Hart c's Royal Academy Speech.
New York, May 17th.— A Tribune Lon- I
don correspondent says : Bret Harte's speech
at the Royal Academy dinner cannot be reck
oned among his oratorical successes. People
who were prtsent say it was imperfectly
heard. One creditable witness testified that
it was read from manuscript. The single re
porter present seems to have taken down only
the exordium. The single newspaper pub
lished next morning omits even those few sen
tences. In no journal does our fellow-coun
tryman attain to the honor of so much as a
summary of his whole speech.
Charges of Corruption nnd Bribery.
Chicago, May 17th.— The Journal's Wash
ington special says : At a meeting of the
House Pacific Railroad Committee to day a
letter making charges of coiruption and
bribery against a Pacific railroad company,
written by J. A. George, a contractor, was
submitted. The letter charged that $90,000
in money and $100,000 worth of land-grant
bonds were paid to a United States Senator,
and that $1,000,000 worth of bonds were dis
tributed among members of the House. The
writer says he can produce evidence and fur
nish witnesses to sustain the charges, and
asksfor investigation. j No action has been
taken in regard to the letter, the committee
desiring first to ascertain as to the responsi
bility of the writer, and whether he is not
merely engaged in a stock-jobbing affair, be
fore asking the House to order the investiga
tion. The matter has caused quite a sensa
tion among the members who have been
informed about the letter.

Washington, May 17th.— Following is m
full report of the remarks made by Hon.
Newton Booth in the Senate to-day on the
Interocean Canal question :
Mr. President : I rite to present the
memorial of the San Francisco Board of
Trade in favor of the construction of a ship
canal to connect the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans. The Board of Trade oi San Fran
cisco represents a capital of more than 50
--000,000 invested in commercial pursuits, un
der the control of 221 business firms. While
an interoceanic canal is of vast importance to
the whole world, the construction of which
will mark a new era in the world's commerce,
there is no community more immediately in
terested in its early completion, and which
will derive greater benefit.* therefrom, than
that of San Francisco. It is natural that the
merchants of that city should ask a hearing
on this subject by the igrea«f the United
States. Accompanying the memorial is a re
jioit adopted by the Board on the 7th of April
last, on the
practicability ov the various routek
Whicb have been surveyed. The report ia
one of rare intelligence, evincing close and
t adopted by the Board on the 7th of April
t, on the
'KACTICAIiIUTY Of THK VAIIIOI'K ROUTER
.ich have been surveyed. The report is
> of rare intelligence, evincing close and
impartial study. It is a model of diction, at
once clear, concise and comprehensive. It
can be studied with profit by those who are
most familiar with the subject it discusses.
The conclusion of the report is " that in point
of economy of construction, availability for
commercial purposes and certainty of returns
for tbe capital invested, the Nicaragua route
for an interoceanic canal, as surveyed hy
Commander Lull, of the United States
Navy, in 1873, offers the greatest advantages,
and should thertfore receive the unqualified
indorsement of our Government and the
capitalists of the world." One reason
assigned for preferring the Nicaragua to ths
Panama route is that the latter woulU be an

vy, in 187*5, offers the greatest advantages,

irsemcnt of our Government and tbe
italists of the world." One reason
gned for preferring the Nicaragua to IU,
uuna route is that the latter would be an
eriment, the engineering involving vast
expense with doubtful results, while tbe for
mer io vol yes no problems which have not been
already solved. The report well says : "\\ ■
see no reason why the philosophy that
nature teaches should not have been made
use of to conquer the obstacles that nature
placed before us, and we claim that it is bet
ter and more reasonable to carry a ship over
a summit by means of lift-locks than to build
a sea level — but at an incalculably increased
cost which must necessarily receive the
drainage of the country with nn average pre
cipitation of 124 inches annually.
SUE'/. AND PANAMA.
It is frequently assumed that because a •
low-tide level canal has been constructed and
successfully operated at the Isthmus of Suez
it is also practicable at Panama. The con
ditions, however, are radically different. At
Suez the annual rainfall is less than four
inches. At Panama it is over 120 inches.
is frequently assumed that because a
tide level canal has been constructed and
essfully opei ated at the Isthmua of Snez
also practicable at Panama. The con
ms, however, arc radically different. At
• the annual rainfall is less than four
es. At Panama it is over 120 inches.
Booth at this point read the extract from
Commander Lull's report, which is embodied .
in the Board of Trade's report to exhibit tha
vital importance of the question of drainage, .
and confined : When we remember that the •
bottom of this canal will be thirty feet below
the level of the sea, the statement of ('. .to
mander Lull will be regarded as far from ex
aggerated. Aside from the great, if not in
separable, difficulties in the construction of
the Panama canal, the report adopted by the
Board of Trade urges that the location of
this great work is a factor of vital im
portance. He then read long portions of this .
report, showing the advantages of the
Nicaragua route for sailing vessels as com
pared with the Panama region of calms, and
also quoted bodily from j the report, its com
parative resume of the respective features of
the two rival routes with regard to distance,
cost of construction, resources of the regions
Senator Booth brought his remarks to a
striking conclusion as follows : " It is possi
ble that there are no difficulties in either of
these enterprises which will not yield to the
science, skill and determination of the com
merce of the world. The multiplying wants
of civilization demand the completion of this
great work, and of all nations ours has the
deepest interest in if, and the least afford
est interest in it, and can the least afford
to obstruct it. Such a work, so grand in de
sign, so universal in its benefits, should never
be committed to a joint stock company, with
shares to be handled in the market, the sport
of bulls and bears, and subject to secret pur
chase by great premiers who may desire to
obtain control for tbe countries they repre
sent. The American people will abate no
jot or tittle of
THE MONROE DOCTRINE,
In its just and true meaning and interpreta
tion. When that poKey was announced it
was hoped in the glow of enthusiasm that the
people on this continent, who achieved politi
cal independence, would at once enter upon a
career of prosperity, liberty and order. The
hope has not been realized. Then we were a
people of less than ten millions. Our sea
board was more than thirty days removed
from the nearest European pent. Our com
bined exports and imports were less than one
hundred and twenty-eight million dollars per
year. Now, we are in inKant and constant
communication with every portion of the civ
ilized world. Our combined annual imports
and exports are twelve hundred million dol
lars, and we are fifty millions strong. Our.
fathers had visions of a great future, but not
even the vision of prophecy could reveal the
means by which it has been attained. We
are strong enough to-day to maintain any
policy on this Continent which ia right. I
trust we are great enough not to desire any
that is wrong. There are ;

this canal could be r.onstructtd,

time powers of the world agree by

neutrality forever, and make it a free gift to
the world's commerce. Why not? Why
should not the nations which annually lavish
hut dreds of millions on armies and navies
build one monument to peace, to commemo
rate the nineteenth century, and to perpetuate
a high mark in the advancing tide of civiliza
tion 'i If this be impracticable, or the mere
vision of what ought to be, there is another
way, in which the honor shall be all our own.
Let this Government adopt the Nicaragua
route, which is pre-eminently the Amer
ican, take the necessary preliminary steps
to acquire the exclusive right to it,
build the canal, own it, make it free to" the
world in time of peace. In time of war, if
such should unfortunately come, we shall be
strong enough to maintain the right to it
which we indisputably possess. We ought
to rise to the bight of the occasion and do
this to repay the debt we owe to history and
to the memory of the great Admiral who.
seeking the nearest passage to the Orient by
sailing to the west, revealed the new world
in which it is our happiness to live. I move

Foreign Relations." - " '".*-.

business of tbe morning hour proceeded,
while the Senator took his seat and received
numerous compliments upon the terseness
