IMMENSE DEMOCRATIC DEMONSTRATION AT PORT
PORTLAND, Me. Dec. 30.An immense au
dience assembled at the Democratic mass meet

numb er of ladies wero present in the gallery,
and many distinguished Democrats were up on
the platform. Sullivan O. Andrews presided
and opened the meeting in a brief speech in
troducing Congressman Ladd who said Men
had spoken of arms, but he would tell them
'he was thrice armed who hath hia quarrel
just." He said in the late election the repub
lican party was beaten, but by corruption and
fraud they carried certain districts. He be
lieved the governor and council had counted
all cases right, but, if not, why this bluster?
The legislature can correct all mistakes and
seat all its members. Gov. Garcelon is an

to maintain the constitution. He considered
that the supreme court could not decide this
case. It could only arbitrate.

composed of Democrats or Greenbackers alone,

over which he obtained control by recording,
under the laws of the State of New York, fictiti

W. D. Duff and H. E. Lassing, according to
which they have for a number of months been
attending to the practical manage

enormous amount of profits. Their agreement
was to pay Buckwalter $12,500 per month
$150,000 per yearfor the net receipt? of the
business during a term of five years, under the
single firm of Lawrence & Co., and an equal
amount for the prestige of doing business
under two of the other firm names. Buck waiter's
interests were guarded by his having confiden

letters containing remittances, which
have poured in at suoh a rate as to make the
profits of Lawrence & Co. alone from $18,000
to $29,000 per month from March 1st to Dec

BONANZA FIRE AT WASHINGTON.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 30.The palatial resi
dence of ex-Senator Stewart, of Nevada, took
fire this evening, from a defective flue, and
was completely gutted by the flames. Th
house is situated on the Iowa Circle, facing
south, and at the time of its erection wag con
sidered a model of elegance and tasteful decor
ation. I was familiarly known as Stewart's
castle, and was pointed out as one of the at
tractions of the city. The house had been un
occupied for some time, bnt had just been re
opened by the Ste'wart family, and prepara
tions were making for a grand reception to
morrow evening. The ball room had been
decorated, and fires were lighted in
the furnaces to thoroughly heat the house
in anticipation of a New Year's ball. The
flames were first seen breaking through the
floor in the front hall. An alarm was given by
telephone and the entire fire department sum
moned, but before the engines arrived the
flames had run np the front stairway and
reached the top of the tower eighty feet or more
above the street. The fire then spread rapidly
and soon filled the entire part of the building.
The two upper stones and roof were completely
burned out, nothing being saved except from
the parlor and basement floors. At 11 o'clock
the firemen gained control of the flames and
succeeded in saving the two lower floors from
fire, though the damage from smoke and water
was very great. Mr. Stewart is not in the city
and Mrs. Stewart was attending a reception
when the fire broke out. Her little child 6 years
old was sleeping in the upper chamber and was
rescued by two of the servants. The loss can
not be definitely ascertained to-night, but is
roughly estimated at $50,000. Sir Edward

Surrender of the Prisoners DoubtfulAn
Outbreak and Massacre at Los Plnos
FearedCritical Situation of Gen. Hatch.
Los PINOS AGENCY, Ool., Deo. 29, via LAKE
CITY, Col., Dee. 30.The commission adjourned
yesterday to meat on the 29th inst. at Glint's
ranch, at Cameron river, twenty-five miles
southeast of the agency, there to await tho ar
rival of the prisoners. Gen. Hatch and escort
left this morning at 4 o'clock, in a drizzling
rain. The five days extension expires on the
29th inst., and if all the Indians demanded by
the commission are not surrendered on that
date the peioe negotiations fail. "All, or none,"
were the parting words of Gen. Hatch to Ouray
as he left the commission rooms yesterday
for hia ranch to hold the final
Indian council, which ere this decided the fate
of the Ute nation. Ouray fully realizes the
situation and knows that the nltimatum of the
commission is the demand of the nation and if
not complied with, the Utes must go. The
surrender of the prisoners is very doubtful.
Chief Geio, second to Ouray, being a medicine
man, has a large following,
and he has done more than
all others to hinder the commission from
accomplishing its work. He is in favor of
war au at the time of the White River troubles
wanted to massacre the people living on the
Gunnison and was only restrained by Ouray.
If the war department takes charge of the
Dtes and the troops are ordered in they mast
come quickly or Los Pmos agency may prove a
second White River affair. 'When Ouray leaves
for Washington there -will be no one
left to restrain theyoung bucks, and Gero IB
so hostile to the whites that he is liable to cut
loose any moment. Gen. Hatch has been very
patient, and, if successful, will be the first to
have effected the peaceable surrender of Indi
an prisoners, and he certainly deserves some
reojgnition from the President and Congress
for his services as president of the commission.
NEWS AT WASHTNOXON.
A Washington dispatch says the information
in the hands of the government contains
nothing to show that the Ute commission has
been a failure, and nothing to indicate that
Gen. Hatch and his party are in any danger
from Indians. Steps have, however, been
taken to protect the party in case there should
be any attack upon them. I was agreed that
the friendly Southern Ute chiefs, about whom
Gen. Hatch has telegraphed, should be brought
on to Washington.
INSTRUCTIONS TO HATCH.
I accordance with the dicision arrived at in
the [cabinet meeting this afternoon, Secretary
Schurz telegraphed Gen. Hatch to-night, that
the friendly Southern Ute chiefs may be
brought to Washington. The Secretary does
not think ther eis any room for apprehension
with regard to the safety of Gen Hatch and
bis companions, and this view of the situation
was also taken by tha secretary of war and
Gen. Sherman at their interview. Gen. Sher
idan, befere leaving the city this afternoon,
had an interview with Gen. Sherman, when,
from what can be learned, it was decided to
make the best possible- disposition of troops,
in order to secure their immediate availability
in case of any sudden emergency.
A FEW PECULIARITIES.
The Eccentricities and Superstition*
Lotta sleeps three hoars by daylight, bnt
if she should wake np ten minutes before the
nsual time (just the time to rush to the
theater) the fates are against her, and she
will not do well that evening. If any one
whistles in a dressing room within her hear
ing while she is donning her costume, she is
sure the person is "whistling away her luck,"
and the honse going to be bad. Fanny Davan
port wonld not, for any consideration! miss
rearranging her wig before the green-room
mirror just previous to going on the stage.
She has a regular, unvarying formula to go
through to guarantee success. She first
presses her hands to the sides of her head to
besure the springs are firmly fixed (although
she has just had her dresser make that Bure
in her dressing-room), then gives the "bang"
three smart tngs, puffs up the frizzes with a
nervous twitch of her fingers, presses the en
tire wig down from the top of her head,
gives the silken trail a final kick to induce
it to unfold itself, and then
rushes pell-mell to tho stage in answ er to the
alarming cry of "stage waiting." Without"
this formality she wonld not be herself the
whole evening. Clara Morris believes in the
efficacy of a small medicine vial, which she
carries (empty) through every scene, she
says, through habit, though it is fair to pre"
snme through superstition. Without the
vial she could not get along. Keilson has
also a vial,a special one,which she insists
shall only be used for Romeo's poison potion.
She will handle no other, and has been
known to bave the bill changed because the
vial was mislaid, and would not allow Borneo
or Juliet to be put up for performance until
it was found. Maude Granger has a certain
magio smelling bottle, whioh she puts to her
nostrils just before going on the stage.
Maggie Mitchell attributes her success in
"Fanchon" to an old pair of shoes which
she wears in that piece. Eliza Weathersby
hates birds, doesn't like whistlers, and has
for her special charm an embroidered rose,
which always appears on her dress

GERMANS AMD THE THIRD TEBSf.
A Strong Protest Against Grant's Candi
Sigismnnd Eanfmann, a leading German
Republican of this city, has issued an ad
dress to the Germans, in which he says, af
ter speaking of the political influence the
German element has obtained since 1848:
"The agitation of the third term is a test of
your adherence to Republican principles.
The great general of the war was as faith
fully supported in the field by yon as by the
native American, and afterwards when at the
polls Gen. Grant reap ed the reward of his
victories, yon cast your ballot as one man for
him, and again voted for him a second term.
Precedent stops here, and it is not pretended
that the qualitiesof Gen. Grant either as a citi
zen or soldier so far excel those of Washing
ton as to require a third time to accennate
them. It is urged that we need a strong
man and strong government in face of the
conclusive answer given by the result of the
civil war. The government as it then exists*

George William Curtis On Gen. Grant.
[Interview in the Philadelphia Press.]
Do yon think Grant seeks the nomina
Not.having any really good reason for
saying so, I cannot say that I think he seeks
the nomination. He has done no act, so
far as I know, which can be construed as an
overtnre for the nomination. But I have no
hesitation in saying that I think he expects
the nomination. The probability is that he
will have the nomination offered to him.
From my knowledge of conventions, of
how they work and of how they are influenc
ed, matters look as if the nomination would
oortainly be offered to Grant.
Do you think he would accept?
Yes, he wonld, in my opinion.
Would you regard his nomination as
I think it would be unwise both for him
self and for the party. He wonld gain noth
ing by it, even if he could be elected. The
party would lose by it The nomination
would certainly be inexpedientin my judg
ment the most inexpedient that the party
could make. It would provoke the resist
ancepassive resistance, at leastof a large
and powerful class of Republicans whose co
operation has been demonstrated to be essen
tial to the party's success next year. The
fall State elections showed that it is neces
sary for the Republicans to carry the State
of New York next year in order to eleot their
President. It is difficult for the Republi
cans to carry New Yc*k at any time. It has
been proved beyond doubt that it is exceed
ingly difficult for the party to carry the State
with machine nominations. Grant's nomi
nation would render the success of the party
in this State extremely problematical. It
would be a machine nomination.
Wonld his election ^be opposed by any
other class of Republicans?
Yes I think it would be opposed by another
class of Republicans whose prejudices against
a third term are stronger than even that
other prejudice against the machine. There
can be no doubt that a great body of the very
best Republicans have a deep and ineradica
ble feeling against a third term. So strong
and general is this feeling that it has created
a custom against third terms. It cannot be
denied tbat the feeling is deep and whole
some. There is no reason at present for
trying to overthrow it. Grant's election is
not necessary. It is not sought on an good
grounds of public policy. It is not urged to
accomplish any needed national object. It
Is not suggested as a means to secure any
desirable thing whioh cannot be just as well
secured by the election of any other nomi
nee. There is, in fact, neither reason or oc
casion for it. Then why attempt it?
Beck Sustains Garcelon.
The troubles in Maine are still generally
commented upon at Washington. There
seems to be a division of sentiment among
Democrats. Senator Beck, of Kentucky, is
understood to be very emphatic in his ap
proval of the course pursued by Gov. Garce
lon. He thinks that under the present state
of public sentiment he had a perfect right to
send for arms and ammunition, at Bangor,
for the protection of the State oapitol.
disapproves of the insnrrectionnry spirit
which has been incited by Republican
speakers, who have assailed, in very in
cendiary terms, the action of Gov.
Garcelon and his council. He thinks
it is a very impolitic course for the Republi
cans to pursue, and if continued will result
in the overthrow or the party in Maine. As
to the proposition of Mr. Morrill that Gov.
Garcelon should refer the technicalities of
law to the supreme court, and let it settle
the trouble, Senator Beck says he does not
see the need of it. He says Garcelon acted
strictly within the law, and was governed
by former decisions on all points ot law in
volved. He does not see, ft lerefore, why he
should call upon the corr- to render de
cisions upon questions they have already
decided. He thinks that Garoelon's course
was a simple observance of law, and if he
had acted otherwise he would bave violated
his oath of office, which required bim to ex
ecute the law.
The Democratic Congressional convention at
Booneville, Mo., yesterday, nominated Jno. F.
Phillips on the first ballot as candidate to fill

THE DOOM O THE CZAR.
The Revolutionary Committee Avows His
Death to Be One of Its Objects.
The Berlin correspondent of the London
Daily Newt has received from St. Peters
burgh a copy of a proclamation issued by
the revolutionary committee on the day that
the czar returned to St. Petersburg. It reads
FROM THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE.
ST. PETERSBURG, NOV. 22, 1879.On the
19th of this month, on the Moscow & Kursk
railway, by order of the executive committ
tee, an attempt was made on the life of Alex
ander II. by means of an explosion. The
attempt failed. We do not find it conven
ient to publish at the present time the cause
of the failure. W are convinced that our
agents and our party will not be dishearten
ed at the failure of the attempt, but will
gain for it a new experience, a lesson of pre
caution, and at the same time fresh
consciousness of their own power and of
the possibility of a successful issne. Ad
dressing ourselves to all honest Russian
citizens, who valne liberty, to whom the
national will and the national interests are
sacred, we once again point to Alexander
II. as the personification of a despicable de
spotism, of all that is cowardly and sangui
nary. The reign of Alexander II., from the
beginning to the end, is a lie, in whioh the
famous emancipation of the serf ends with
Makoff's circular. From the commencement
to the end it has been devoted to the con
solidation of the classes hostile to the peo
ple and the destruction of everything by
which the people lived and wish to live. The
wiil of the people was never so contemptu
ously disregarded and trampled on. The
present reign has supported by every means
all those -who rob and oppress the people,
and at the same time systematically extermi
nated all who are honest and
devoted to the nation. There is not one vil
lage that has not supplied martyrs, who
have been deported to Siberia for support
ing oomfnnnal interests and for protesting
against the administration. From among
the intelligent classes tens of thousands drag
in an intermiable string to Siberia to the
mines, exclusively for having served the
cause of the people in the cause of liberty,
and in order to attain a higher level of oivil
development. This ruinous process ot ex
termination of every independent element is
at last simplified. Alexander II. is the
usurper of the nation's right, the main pil
lar of reaction, the chief author of the ju
dicial assassinations. Fourteen executions
weigh on his conscience. Hundreds of suf
ferers cry for vengeance. He deserves to
die for the blood he has spilled, for all the
suffering he has inflicted. Ha deserves to
die, but it is not alone with him that we have
to do. Our object is the national welfare.
Our task is to emancipate the people and
make them masters of their fate. If Alex
ander II. would recognize what
a dreadful calamity he is inflicting on
Russia, how unjust and criminal the
oppression he creates, and, renouncing his
authority, would transfer suoh to an assem
bly freely elected by universal suffrage and
provided with instructions by its eleotora,
then only would we leave Alexander II.
peace, and forgive him all his offenses. Un
til then, a struggle, an implacable struggle,
while there remains in ns a drop of blood,
until, over the raina of despotism, there
waves the standard of national liberty, and
the will of the people shall become the law
of Russian life. We appeal to all Russian
citizens to support our party in this struggle.
It is no easy task to support the whole pres
sure of the government forces. The failure
of the attempt of the 19th of November is
an instance of the many difficulties with
whioh even separate aud comparatively un
important episodes in the struggle are at
tended. We want general support in order
to break np depotism and return to the peo
ple its right and authority. We demand and
expe ct such support from Russia.
PANIC I N A THEATER.
A Nearly Tragic Termination to "Tho Two
Orphans" at Baltimore.
[Baltimore Special, Dee. 27.1
The singular fatuity whioh appears to
hang over "The Two Orphans," as produced
by Miss Kate Claxton, again reoeived an il
lustration this afternoon, during the mati
nee performance at Halliday Street theatre,
when an alarm occasioned by a fight at the
entrance caused a sudden panic in the audi
ence, whioh narrowly escaped being attended
with terrible loss ot life. The theatre was
densely packed with a large and fashionable
cathering, while nearly two hundred who
were unable to obtain seats occupied, the
aisles. The play had proo9eded un
interruptedly until just before the curtain
rose for the last act, when the doorkeeper
attempted to eject a man who had insulted
a lady in the audience. A fight ensned in
the lobby until the combatants were separ
ated by Police Captain Lannan, who chanced
to be present. Before this was accomplished,
however, the people standing near the door
heard the scuffle. A slight movement among
them quickly spread through the audience,
which the next instant rose en masbe. A
cry of "fight" was mistaken for "fire," and
the excitement, whioh was added to by the
snperstitntion surrounding Miss Claxton, be
came intense. A concerted rush was made
for the door. The scene that followed was
one of wild confusion. Ladies soreaming and
fainting on all sides added to the tumult oc
casioned by the crowds in the galleries rush
ing down stairs. The theatre officials, as
sisted by the police and several cool headed
bystanders, took prompt measures to allay
the alarm. Oapt Lacnan rushed up the
stairway to the dress circle, and, being a man
of colossal strength and siie, forcibly
stemmed the tide of human beings, while he
shouted to them to keep their seats. Selow
the stairs the scene was one of intense ex
citement and terror, as the crowd rushed to
the doors, heedless of the voice of Mr.
Charles Stevenson, who, partially dressed
for the character of Pierre, rushed on
the stage at the first alarm, closely
followed by Miss Claxton. The repeated
cries of the actors and officials finally al
layed the excitement. As far as could be
ascertained no one was greatly injured, but a
number of ladies were severely trampeledon
during the crush. Too much credit can not
be given to the action of Oapt. Lannan and
his officers, the actors and theater employes,
who were instrumental in restoring confi
dence. After a short delay the curtain rose
on the last soene, disclosing Pierre bending
over the oouohof Louise. The audience,
recognising the coolness and bravery of the
two aotors, enthusiastically applauded them,
after which the performance was quietly
