NEW JERSEY DEMOCRATIC
ELECTOR RESIGNS TO SUP

PLATFORM: OF THE
The Eaole's Special and regular
correspondents, crowded out of our
regular telegraph report of the Demo
cratic convention at Topeka, the plat
form adopted, which reads in full as
Itcsolvcd First. That the Democ
racy ot Kansas this day assembled at
Topeka, do hereby subscribe to the
time-houorcd principles of the partv
as given to us by the Xational Demo
cratic convention, which convened at
Chicago ou the 8th luy of Julv, 1884.
We arc proud of that graud'assem
blatre of statcsment who gave to us
as the choice of the Democrats of this
country for president and vice-president,
U rover Cleveland, of New York
and Tho3. A. Hendricks of Indiana,
aim vc pieugc mem our Hearty sup
port at the coining election.
Second Tho administration of Geo.
Vf. Click as governor of this
commonwealth commends itself to
every fair-minded citizen, without re
spect to party, because it has been
wisi-, iMire, stromr. and convitiein.
The interests of all our people have
been atteuded to. Une million two
hundred and fifty-nine thousand acres
of laud have been rclaimcd to the
state and are now open for homestead
settlement. Large amounts of rail-
roau i.iutis mat nave Heretofore es
caped county and stato taxation have
been placed upon the tax rolls of the
various counties. The rates of fare
and freight have beeu greatly reduced
on all the lines of railroad within our
state. The cattle disease, which
threatened to paralvzc the live stock
industry of the state, was promptlv
checked and confidence restored. The
pardoning power has been sparingly
and wisely exercised and only where
mo sentence was unjust or unusually
severe, or where the trial was partial,
unfair and not in accord with the
spirit of our coustitutiou aud the re
cent decisions of the supremo court.
The stream of immigration which had
been turned from our borders during
a former administration has again
been restored and two hundred and
fifty thousand inhabitants added to
our population, mid finally the giving
of majority and minority representa
tion on the boards of all the public in
stitutions of the state, thereby lifting
them above party control aud making
them public blessings to all our people.
Third That constitutional prohibi
tion has been fruitful of discord, ner-
jury and discrimination; has not less
ened the evils of intemperance, but
rather destrojed the pure fireside in
fluences which must ever be the loving
power to control the appetites of the
weak and wayward: that it has never
been endorsed or acquiesced in bv a
majority of our people; that it is an as
sault upon the personal liberty of the
citizens; that it has destroyed and lit
erally confiscated private property
without compensation, and that it is
not iu harmony with tiic spirit of tree
people, to dictate to the individual
what ho shall eat, drink or wear, or
what religion, if any, he shall profess.
In view of the foregoing, and for oth
er reaon. we demand a resubmission
of the prohibitory amendment aud
pledge ourselves to work unceasingly
for this object. W demand a repeal
of tho present obnoxious and unjust
law for the enforcement ot prohibition
aud iu its stead a well regulated li
censo system rigidly enforced, where
by the interests of true temperance
may be promoted and tho liberty of
the citizens restored, and we reiterate
the views of our worthy candidate
for president in his letter of accep
tance, ''that l.iws unnecessarily inter
fcring with the habits and customs of
any of the people which arc not offen
sive to tho morals and sentiments of
the civilised world, and which arc con
sistent wilh good citizenship and the
public welfare arc unwise and vexa
tions," Kourth We congratulate the pco-'
pie on tho succcsslul establishment of
a board of railroad commissioners j
with statutory enactment for their,
guidance, the necessity for which was
clearly presented to tho people by j
Geo. V. Click iu his canvass for gov
ernor and in his inaugural message to
tiic legislature. As a result rail
road charge Jor transportation
passengers and freight have been ma
terially reduced in the past year, there
by paving to the state several millions
of dollars and guaranteeing to the
producer and shipper unchanging
tarills for the transportation of future
prodnrts. Where the railroads in the
state have vicldcd obedience to this
Iaw,niil have modified their charges iu
harmony with its provisions, it should
be accepted by the people as an act of
good f.iith on their part and entitles I
them to just and impartial treatment
hv our legislature, ot industries of in- '
calculable value to the state, and wo
demand such additional legislation as
may be necessary to do exact justice
between the railroads a:id the people.
Fifth The good work of restoring
the public lands to the state for home-'
stcad settlement should be continued
until the last acre is recovered, aud
that corporations and foreign powers
be not permitted to acquire
and fence iu tracts of land to the in
jury of the settlers.
Sixth That all public lands of the
United States, wherever situated,
should be opeucd.to actual settlement,
ami we arctlicrclore in favor or open
ing up for occupancy by actual settlers
all such lands now "comprised within
the boundaries of the Indian territory,
and we emphatically pronounce as un
just aud outrageous the arrest and re
moval of actual settlers from such
lands by United States troop. The
continuous refusal by the United
States government to permit the ques
tion in relation to the title to lands lo
cated in the so-called Indian territory
to be decided by the United States
courts is au outrage upon the rights of
all citizens and a cowardly evasion of a
direct call th answer a" question of
vital importance to such citizens.
Seventh That the laboring classes
require the fostering care ot our legi-
laturc and the protecting hand of offi-f
ciai power in me struggle for " lite,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
This we pledge to them now in the
spirit of pure Detnocracv. which ha
ever been the friend of labor, and
that we denounce and will oppose the
importation of foreign pauper labor
under contract to compete with our
citizens, and further that we arc op-
posed to convict labor as being

THE WRONG DOCUMENT.
AVasiiixgton, D. C, Aug. 22. Sec
retary I'ost, of the Democratic con
gressional campaign committee, dis
covered to-day that tho committee was
inadvertently" helping along the Kc
publican campaign by distributing Kc
publican documents." The Democratic
committee has boen sending out, as
one of its principal campaign docu
ments a speech delivered by Senator
Voorhecs on the imprisonment of Mc
Sweeuey, the Irish suspect, by the
British officials duriug Garfield's ad
ministration. Copies of the speech arc
obtained by the committee by requisi
tion upon the senate folding
room. They are delivered to the
committee in large quantities, several
thousand at a time, already folded and
in wrappers, and arc addressed by the
committee's employees aud placed in
the mails. It appears to have been
the custom of the committee to rely
altogether upon the integrity aud care
of the senate foldiug-room officials,
and the mail documents were received
from them without examination.
To-day, however, an employe of the
committee discovered, by accident
ally openiu"- one of the documents he
was about to mail, that instead of
Voorhecs' speech, tho committee was
distributing, "where they would do
the most good," a Kcpublican cam
paign document entitled, "flic His
tory and Beneficence of Protection,"
made up of speeches on the protection
ist's side of the tariff question, and de
livered in the house ot representatives
last winter. An examination lol
lowed, and disclosed the fact that
all the supposed Voorhecs
speeches in possession of the commit
tee were copies of the document. Sec
retary Post went at once to the super
intendent of the folding room aud
took him to task about thomattcr,and
was informed that the substitution of
one document for auothar was an hon
est mistake. It is not known how
many Republican documents were
sent out by the Democratic committee.
They themselves have no means to es
tablish the fact.

The Gate City blew its whistle aud the
steamer Fish Hawk, lying at the
wharf at Woodshall. sent out her
steam launch to the Gate City, which
lay to until 3 o'clock transferring the
crew to the launch. They all lauded
at Woodshall. The Tallapoosa lies ou
what is known as Square Meadow
Flats, aud her sinoko stack aud top
mast alone arc visible. The schooner
James S. Lovcll also has on board
several of the Tallapoosa's crew.
Captaiu Reed, of the schooner
James S. Lovcll, states: "I was pass
ing through the sound last night with
a strong southwest wind, with all sails
set, and was goiugniuc knots an hour.
1 he night was clear, but dark When
two miles out the lookout reported a
light ahead. Shortly it was seen to be
a red light, and I said, speaking to the
wheelsman, 'Red; keep her straight.'
I stood near tho wheel during
all the time and our course was not al
tered until the word came that the
green light could be seen. To avoid a
collision seeing tint the steamer was
doiug nothing to avoid us, I ordered
the helm hard down, but before it
could be done and before my vessel
had altered her course at all the two
vessels struck each other, their sterns
seemingly coming together exactly.
Our vessel's stern glanced by tho Tal
lapoosa's ud penetrated- her hull.
After the vessel stopped tho steamer
swung around along side the Lovcll,
aud her crew might have jumped on
board but it was not then known what
was the condition of cither vessel.
After getting my familv into the boat
I examined my vessel. Bho whs leak
ing quite badly, though not in imme
diate danger of sinking. The Talla
poosa drifted away from us and sank
within ten minutes, before many of
the officers aud crew had left her. " As
she went down thoso who could do so
took to the rigging and were taken off
later. The schooner Mary A. Wood
came along and assisted in saving the
crew, and later the steamer Gate
City signaled and came to our assist
ance and after all the saved had been
transferred to her she steamed away
to Woodshall. Our vessel was badly
damaged, the stern being started anil
the wood ends injured. She made
twenty inches of water in a short
time. We were under way proceed
ing to Vineyard Harbor.
Touching the collision Capt. Reed
says: It is the most careless piece of
work I ever saw. The night was clear,
the lights of the Lovcll were burning
all right and were perfectly visiblo at a
longdistance. There is difficulty in
obtaining the story of the steamer,
her executive officer, to whom re
porters arc referred, declining to
make any statement. One of the men
on the lookout on the steamer says he
saw tho schooner's light fifteen min
utes before the collision and reported
that fact. Several of the crew of the
steamer acknowledge the steamer to
bo at fault. Briefly, the facts arc that
the schooner was steering southeast
by south, half east, and the steamer
in exactly the opposite direction, with
the sailing vessel having the right of
way by law. Many of the men were a
considerable time in water, ten being
fished up nearly half au hour after the
sinking. Numerous wrecking schoon
ers and the steamers Fish Hawk and
Verbena were cruising about the
sound in the vicinity seeking to secure
the bodies of the drowned and nuy
Uostox, August 2. Lieutenant
Win. II. Everetts, executive otliccr;
ensign Win. IJ. Whittles-, mate Hugh
Kuhl, with 100 men from the wrocked
Tallapoosa, arrived to-night at the
navy yard, where they go upou wait
ing orders. Lieutenant Everett say
he believes the Tallapoosa did not act
iu a manner to avoid the line of water
which the schooner would cover. He
was not ou deck at the time of the col
lision, but from conversation he has
miicc liad, he has been convinced that
the steamer wa right. "The two ves
sel," lie says, "were coming iu dia
metrically opposite direction-, head
on. The" schooner should have kept
straight along, and we should hive
passed to one side of her. Until
would seem as though the officer in
charge ot the schooner were afr.dd we
would not alter ourcourse, and turned
their vecl's head from her proper
courec. Xow, its a perfectly ca-y
thing to avoid.a tired point; but when
that poiut keeps bobbing around,
there's no telling what direction to
take. The way the schooner htrucs
us would indicate that she changed
her course, coming as the did toll

The statement of others of tho Talla

that a different set of movement
were followed. The general- opinion ' Chicago. Aug. . The indication

when it ought to have been hard-a-
fault rested, certain
it is that the schooner nluueed
head into the Tallapoosa on the star
board bow and cut clean through the
timbers of the vessel, opening au im
mense hole for the water to pour in.
About sixteen men were on deck, but
according to the statements of several
on watch they and most of their com
rades were asleep forward. The men
of tho crew below were rudely
awakened by tho terrific shock, and
sprang hastily from their hammocks.
The water flooded both decks, and iu
stantly the sailors, abandoning every-
iniug, rushed on deck through the
debric. There was no coufusion, only
a great degree of haste. Some twenty
or thirty men took to the water, in
stead of to the boats All this hap
pened iu five minutes. The TallaDoosa
had beguu to sink, and in a few min
utcs her hull was completely sub
merged. Not one of the head officers
had left the craft. Captain Merry was
the last man in his vessel and Lieuten
ant Everett left only just before him.
Xo attempt was made to save per
sonal effects. The men wore later
transferred to the steamer Gate Citv.
Dountt irom ifostou to bavauuah,
which brought them to Woodshall.
Tho men reached here this evening,
Captain Merry remaining with a few
seamen at Woodshall.
Four men are reported to be lost,
but of these only two are known cer
tainly to have perished. Surgeon Chas.
E. Black, at the time of the disaster,
was below iu the ward room. The
carpenter's mate being injured iu the
hand when the mast fell, hurried to
have the surgeon attend to the wound.
As he was so doing the cry "abandon
ship" raug out. The two men has
tened ou deck. The surgeou made
his wav aft to the hurricana deck, and
stood under au awning which was
spread, holding fast to a settee. He
did not seem to realize his position,
and when Lieutenant Everett, per
ceiving him. called out that he
had better provido himself with a lite
preserver, the surgeon responded,
"Where are they?" Tho lieutenant
pointed them out, but his friend did
not move. A sailor hurrying by heard
the officer remark to himself. "Well,
I guess this is last of Black," aud al
most immediately the vessel sank. It
is supposed tlm awning prevented the
officer from clearing himself from (he
wreck, and he was immediately
drowned. The other man last was a
colored saloon hand named George
Foster, belonging iu Norfolk, Va.
He had quickly seized a life
preserver, and rushing to the
hurricau deck, threw himself, pre
server iu hand, over the stern.
his body struck upon the monkey rail,
ami ne was prouamv instantly
for tho preserver Hotted but the bod
was not to be seen. I he other two
missing men are Win. O'Donnell. sc.i
niiiu, of Boston, and W. IT. .fonts,
landsman, of Willmiugtoii. They are
confidently delievcd to have stowed
themselves away on the Gate City.
Executive Officer Everett, Friday
morning went out to look at the
wreck. He eavs: "We found onlv a
portion ot her mam mast and smoke
stack above ihe water. I think
can bo raised. She is worth it."
