San Diego Scoops tlie Republican
Nomination For Congress.
Only Two Ballots Taken at Ventura—A
Los Angeles Democrat Will Win
Associated Press Dispatches. I
Ventura, Cal., Sept. 4.—The sixth
congressional district Republican con
vention was promptly called to order at
2 p. m., by the chairman, John Brown,
jr. The ball had been rapidly' filling up
for some time, and at the time of open
ing the delegates were nearly all
in their seats. Many ladies had
been given seats on the stage,
among them being several from Los
Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara
and San Bernardino counties. Having
rapped for order, the chairman said the
hour to which the convention had ad
journed to meet in Ventura, had arrived;
that he would congratulate the delegates
for their long and faithful service to their
friends ; the eyes of the district and state
were upon them, and the expressions
throughout had been in praise of the
unanimity of the harmony of the dele
gations, and the chairman hoped and
believed that this harmony would con
tinue to the end. No such number of
ballots bad ever been taken with so
much good humor.
Proxies' Name Recorded.
Judge Carpenter, of Los Angeles, said
several changes had been made in prox
ies, and he moved that tbe matter be
referred to the committee on credentials,
and that the chairman of the delega
tions send the names of the proxies and
delegates to the committee.
Heacock, of Santa Barbara, moved as a
substitute that the roll be called by the
secretary, and in those counties where
there were no changes, that the roll
should stand as it was; that in those
counties where changes had been made
the chairman of the delegates should
call the same, and that the secretary of
the convention should record them.
The substitute was accepted by Judge
Carpenter and was carried unanimously.
Tlie call of counties showed changes
in the delegation from Fresno, Kern,
Los Angeles, Monterey, Mono, Orange,
Santa Barbara, San Bernardino, San
Benito, San Luis Obispo Tulare |and
Cheers For Vamlever.
This having been done the cry went
up of "Call the roll," but Osborne, of
Los Angeles, being recognized, proposed
that as the convention was now at the
home of General Yandever, that they
give three hearty cheers in honor of
that gallant old soldier. They were
given with a will, every delegate rising
to his feet.

The Stampede to Bowers.
Before the vote was announced Los
Angeles changed one vote from Rowell
to bowers, followed by one Lindley to
Rowell, then two Lindley to Rowell.
Two more Rowell votes followed suit,
when Ventura changed three Lind
ley votes to Bowers, thus giving
Bowers the requisite ninety-five.
Rapid changes in the Los Angeles dele
gation in favor of Rowell followed, and
San Luis Obispo sent two Lindley votes
into Bowers' camp. Inyo followed with
five; Tulare, with one and Mono gave
three to Rowell. The official vote, as
announced, stands: Bowers,oß; Lindley,
32; Rowell. 58.
Bowers, Lindley and Rowell were
called before the convention, and were
received with generous applause. They
promised allegiance and the best efforts
they could make for the whole ticket.
A Large New York Exporting Firm Goes
to the Wttll.
New York, Sept. 4. —The firm of Saw
yer, Wallace & Co., exporters of bread
stuffs and cotton and dealers in leaf to
bacco, created great surprise in business
circles today by making an assignment
to Marshal Ayers. The firm was esti
mated to be worth between a million
and a quarter and a million and
a half dollars above all liabilities.
They were prompt, in paying for local
purchases and responded promptly also
when called upon to margin their con
tracts. A short time ago Miller made a
statement to the effect that the linn
were worth more than if 1,500,000; that
their liabilities were merely nominal,
and that they did a commission business
only. When the announcement of the
failure was made today, a rumor gained
circulation to the effect that the firm

been speculating in grain and lust heuv
ily. It is believed the firm have pretty
well protected their interests in this
country, and that their chief losses,
which they think may reach $1,500,000,
will be in London and mainly on their
pork dealings. A statement of liabilities
and assets will be made as soon as pos
The house on Wall street say the
cause of the failure wag the result of
efforts made by the linn to squelch
competition in tbe commission business
by doing a commission business
with European sneculators without
margin and a small commission.
In a pork deal last January
the firm is said to have sustained
a loss of $1,000,000. Claims for these
loss#s against European speculators are
among the nominal assets. It is esti
mated that the sum total of nominal
assets will reach $1,750,000. The firm
has undoubtedly immense holdings of
merchandise in the various products in
which they dealt, both in the export
and import way. It will, however, take
some time to realize on these holdings.
Ezcta Forming a Legal Government—ln

The following is from a letter dated
Guatemala City, August 17, giving an
account of a battle in San Salvador: At
Casa Blanca the plaza was al
most destroyed and the town
sacked. The American consul, Mr. Meyer,
was met by Minister Mizner (who had
come from Guatemala) at La Libertad,
going to New York, having hid behind
a stone bath tub for over thirty hours,
while his house, the consulate and
the city were being sacked by
Er.eta's men. Mizner sent officers to
the United States steamship Thetis, to
demand that the United States flag that
had been pulled down and dragged
about the streets be raised and saluted
with twenty-one guns in the presence of
all the American residents, a company of
soldiers and a band of music, with the
president and all his officers, which was
done immediately upon the demand of
the officer. The consulate was restored
to the United States consul, with a
guarantee of all his official privileges.
Sudden Death of One of Ohio's Most
Cincinnati, Sept. 4. —Hon. E. F.
Noyes, judge of the superior court of
Cincinnati, fell dead shortly alter 11
o'clock to-day, at the court house. He
had been on tlie bench, but was too un
well to proceed further. He left the
bench and was on his way to a street car.
when he suddenly fell backward and
died instantly. The cause of his death
is supposed to have been apoplexy.
Noyes was fifty-seven years old. He en
tered ihe army here in 1801 as major of
the 39th Ohio regiment of infantry;
soon after he was its colonel. On July
4th, 1804, at Ruff's Mills, Ga., in a
charge upon the enemy, which he led,
he lost a leg. He left the army a brevet
major general. Since the war he served
as city solicitor of Cincinnati, probate
judge of Hamilton county, governor of
Ohio, and was minister to France under
President Hayes. Last year he was
elected judge of the superior court of

Associated Press Dispatches. I
Dover, N. H., Sept 4—Speaker Reed
left Boston for Portland in a special car
this morning. At Haverhill he stopped
and was escorted to the public
square, where he spoke on national af
fairs twenty minutes. He also spoke
at Dover. He congratulated his hearers
upon belonging to the Republican party,
"because it is a middling honest party,
reasonably good, and is on its way to
become thoroughly and absolutely
good." The remainder of his
address was in vindication of
tbe party keeping its promises.
Henry Cabot Lodge was then intro
duced, and spoke a few minutes. Three
cheers were given for Reed.
Portland, Me., Sept. 4. —Speaker
Reed arrived here this afternoon. He
received ovations at several points along
the road, where the train stopped today.
Tonight he was welcomed at the cit<y
hall by a crowd of 3,000 people, and
made an address, the substance of which
Speaker'faeed's address was devoted
to a review of the work of the present
house of representatives. He spoke of
the threats of the minority before the
assembling of congress, and the decla
rations that they were to rule in utter
disregard of the will of the
people, and of all the fili
bustering tactics they were prepared
to employ. "The house of representa
tives," he said, "is not a body quick to
do business under any set of rules. Its
large numbers and the diverse interests
they represent, will always make it slow
and cumbersome, but the system which
enabled one member to hold the whole
house at bay until the going
down of the sun, and then hold
it through the night unti
physical exhaustion set it free, and onel
fifth to hold it forever, was evidently a
system which renders elections useless
and called a halt to civilization itself.
If there be anything in a popular govern
ment, it means when the people have
elected one party to take control of the
house or senate, that party shall have
both the power and the responsibility.
"It was with far other ideas of pub
lic duty that the minority met us at the
opening of the session. Not only were
no measures to pass which did not have
their approval, but no rules, even of
procedure, were to be permitted, except
those which seemed suitable to the
beaten party. So we began without
rules. After two months the opposi
tion found that under the parlia
mentary law which had been built up
by the American people in consonance
with their institutions, public business
was going on every day without their
consent. And they began to clamor
for everything, and the very rules they
I need not describe to you the scenes
of disorder preliminary to the estab
lishment of sound business principles of
the house. It is enough to say the good
work was done, and the house
has tak,en a large stride toward business
and the performance of its duties. Many
times these last months, I have been
subject to much indiscriminate praise
and much indiscriminate blame. One
is just as much deserved as the other.
Ureat events do not turn on one man.
The house of representatives was
ready and ripe for a change,
and the people stood ready to
approve. What all the world wanted
was easy to do. I am not greatly
proud to be speaker, but I am proud
with all my heart to be one of that
magnificent majority of the house of
representatives of the fifty-first congress,
which for nine long months has never
for one moment faltered in its duty.
'•We have achieved all the Republican
party promised and more. We prom
ised the people that the tariff sl'ould
have a fair and exhaustive treat ,t,
that the principle of protection s raid
have full recognition, and we have kept
that promise. By the administrative bill
a wise and discriminating effort has been
made to secure to our manufac
turers and merchants the com
plete benefit of the rates of duty
imposed by law. Two years ago the
Democrats in the house admitted that
the woolen industry was tottering to
fall unless woolens and worsteds were
put up on a footing of equality with
other manufactures. Nevertheless for
the purpose of gaining a few
votes for the Mills bill, which
they could never pass, they sacrificed
the wooleu industry. Without delay
and without waiting to strengthen their
own tariff bill by the support of the
worsted men, Major McKinley and Gov
ernor Dingley pushed through a measure
of justice which has rescued so many of
our woolen mills from disaster and ruin.
But these bills, useful as they are, were
but the forerunners of the tariff bill.
The McKinley bill was not made
in a closet; was not the
product of one man who tried to know
everything. If any tariff bill was ever
the result of tbe beliefs of the whole
people of the United States, the McKin
ley bill was that bill.
Another great achievement of the
house is the silver bill. The Republi
cans had promised that all the silver
dollars should be furnished which could
be kept equal with gold. Such a bill as
minis that promise to the utmost now
adorns our statute books as a tribute to
the wise conservatism of the Republi
can majority of the house. Already sil
ver seems to be climbing to par with
safety to all the interests of the country.
There was also another promise to he I
keptj made long ago and often renewed, j
For years the Republican party have [
declared most righteously that there
could not be in a republic a duty more
sacred than the duty of upholding the
right of every citizen to participate in
the government. house, true
to its duty, has passed a
bill which, when it becomes
a law will give to the people of the
United States the suffrages of millions ;
it will enable votes to be cast and be
counted as cast.
Then Mr. Reed continued: "Every
inch of our progress has been con
tested by tlie opposition, We spent two
months and'a half in tlie preliminary
struggles to settle tbe right of the
majority to control, and in de
termining the rules of the house
proceedings. We were forced to
spend more time ou contesteo
elections. Our loss of time from con
tested elections will not be less than 20
days. One other cause of loss of time
will be a surprise perhaps to the com
munity at large. No man would regret
more than I, to be thought wanting in
all proper respect for the dead, and all
proper reverence for departed com
rades, and for the feelings of surviving
friends. Yet the method by which the
house shows this respect and pays this
reverence is very costly to the "nation.
The speaker went on to show that by
the time the house gets through with
eulogies of members who have died dur
ing this session, twenty-one working
days will have been lost. *
He then went on to speak of another
method of obstruction, the calling of the
roll. With 330 members it takes
twenty-live minutes to make a roll call.
Whenever the yeas and nays are or
dered, it means the loss of half an hour.
So far this session we have had four
hundred roll calls, Uiree hundred of these
have been utterly useless, a mere wan
ton waste, and three hundred roll calls
means twenty-live legislative days,
wasted in the mere useless calling of
names, and all done to wasie time,
with public business unfinished.
But in closing what I have to say, it
would not be just to rest the claims of
the house upon even a catalogue of its
deeds. What this house has shown the
country, that any house can do, and is
worth a prince's ransom. Henceforce
the promise cannot be excused by the
performance. If we have broken
the precedents- of an hundred
years, we have set the precedents of
another hundred years, nobler than the
last, wherein responsibility will wait on
power, and wherein the people with a
full knowledge that the servants can
act, will choose those who will worthily
carry out their will."
