DEMOCRATIC DOINGS.
The Spokane Convention a
Great Success.
The State of Washington Com
pletely Organized.
Addresses by Senator Faulkner and
Congressman Bynum.
Tne Billion-Dollar Congress and Its
Evil Effects Eloquently Exposed.
Letters of Regret from Prom
inent Democrats.
Associated Press Dispatches.
Spokane, Wash., Sept. 24.—The sec
ond day's session of the convention of
the Democratic societies of Washington
began this morning. Henry Drum and
George Hazzard, of Tacoma, were elected
respectively president and secretary. C.
H. Warner, of Colfax, and Francis
Henry, of Olympia, were respectively
chosen vice-president and treasurer.
Next year's convention will be held in
New Whatcom. Senator FaHlkner spoke
this afternoon, and Congressman By
num tonight, closing the convention.
Mr. Bynum said in part: "There is a
promising future for the Democratic
party in the new and partially devel
oped regions of the country, for there
are to be found and will constantly
gather the active, thoughtful and intel
ligent young men, and wherever they
go the triumph of Democratic principles
is assured. Free government cannot
long endure except under Democratic
influence. The Republican party, if it
ever honestly possessed, has long since
abandoned democratic ideas, and stands
today the exponent of every heresy
which threatens the destruction of pop
ular institutions."
The speaker then reviewed the aims,
promises and methods of Republican
legislation, and scored the Republican
majority in congress unmercifully for
unseating Democratic members that the
treasury might be looted. After review
ing the numerous outrages perpetrated
by the "Billion Dollar Congress," Mr.
Bynum said:
"Tne great crime, however, which the
late congress committed against the
people, and for which the Republican
party must answer in the coming con
test, was the enactment of the McKin
ley law."
He then analyzed at length the pur
poses and effects of this infamous meas
ure, and the results of protection as
practiced in the United Stateß for the
last twenty-five years, showing that its
workings have been to benefit a favored
few at the expense of the many. The
tin plate tariff, free wool and kindred
subjects were handled in a masterly
manner. Reciprocity and the bounty
system were summed up as follows:
"Reciprocity and protection cannot
be driven together; they travel in op
posite directions.
"The McKinley law is not only ob
noxious because of its injurious effects
upon trade and commerce, but it con
tains a provision which is much more
dangerous than a mere abuse of the tax
ing power of the government. The
bounty clause is an open and palpable
violation of every principle of free gov
ernment. The fundamental idea of
popular government is that the people
being the sovereign power will always
be true to their own interests and will
prevent any abuse or perversion of au
thority for selfish purposes. The power
of the legislative department of the
government to enact a law for the sup
port of a private industry, out of the
public revenues, is a more dan
gerous one than the power
of taxation without representation.
The very purpose of representation is to
prevent an abuse of the taxing power.
If congress possesses the power to grant
subsidies and give bounties to one indus
try it possesses that power without
limit. If it is a legislative prerogative,
no ccurt can be called to say whether it
has been wisely and judiciously exer
cised; the action of congress being final
and conclusive upon the subject. Why
a bounty to sugar producers? Why a
subsidy to ship-owners and not to oth
ers? Either this bounty will be re
pealed or it will be extended. It must
cease or it-will grow. If the people are
not powerful enough to abolish it, other
interests will combine and soon be
strong enough' to claim its benefits.
Bounties and subsidies aie not only an
tagonistic to the principles of our gov
ernment but they are morally wrong. If
the sugar or any other industry cannot
be conducted without contributions
from the public treasury it is a positive
proof that it is not needed and that its
maintenance can be of no benefit to
the people. Industries that can only
live by public charity are des
tructive, not beneficial to the general
welfare. The demand for bounties; for
subsidies and for appropriations from
the national treasury for private pur
poses is growing with an alarming rapid
ity. The most casual observer cannot
fail to notice the dangerous tendencies
in public affairs. The idea that the gov
ernment is the parent and under obli
gations to favor, support and maintain
industries and classes is becoming more
aniversal day by day. We seem to be
on the very bosom of a current of senti
ment which if not checked or changed
•will carry us upon breakers that will
test the strength of our institutions. In
the midst of winds and storms ; of reefs
and rocks, there is but one safe course
for us, and that is to cling more firmly
to the vessel which has braved every
element and weathered every storm."
In conclusion Mr. Bynum said: "I
would rathergodownto defeatupholding
the grand old banner of Democracy than
to achieve a great victory by erasing
from its face one single principle in-
Hcribed uf on it by our fathers."

September 12th, says: Intelligence is
just received here from the upper
Yukon that a band of hostile Chilcats
attacked a small bunting party of two

A TERRIBLE SMASHUP.
A WORK TRAIN RUN INTO BY A
FREIGHT.
Fifty Men Caught in the Wreck and
Steam and Boiling Water Poured Over
Them—Nine Dead and at Least Twenty
Injured—A Scene of Horror.
New Castle, Pa., Sept. 24."—A terri
ble wreck occurred on the Pittsburg and
Western road at McKim's siding today.
At this point a work train with a force
of fifty men was engaged in putting
down a new track. While they were on
the train throwing off dirt, a freight ran
into them, piling the cars up in a ter
rible manner. Steam and boiling water
poured over those caugnt in the wreck.
For a moment there was silence, then
the air was broken by shrieks of the
dying, making a scene so terrible that
one of the trainmen who escaped injury
fainted with horror. The trainmen and
laborers not injured began at once to
assist those imprisoned in the debris.
■By 11 o'clock the bodies of eight Jtaliun
laborers were taken from the wreck,
and with the killing of Engineer Hough
ton, this swe'.ls the number oi dead to
nine.
At least twenty men were injured,
several of whom cannot recover. All
the bodies were terribly mangled and
disfigured. In a short time pi.ysicians
and citizens were at the scene rendering
all the assistance possible. Ail trains
were delayed, but a large force of men
are at work clearing the track.
THE PORTE EXPLAINS.
A Note Sent to the Powers Denying the
Dardanelles Story.
Constantinople, Sept. 24.—The porte
has sent a circular to the powers in re
gard to the passage through the Darda
nelles of vessels of the Russian fleet. In
this communication the porte says for
several years past vessels of the Russian
volunteer fleet have been running be
tween Odessa and Vladivoßtock.
The ships being undertLe commercial
flag of Russia, were granted free passage
of the straits. It was found, however,
that the vessels sometimes carried sol
diers, and these ships were detained,
owing to a mistake as to their real char
acter. The porte's instructions, the
note adds, given to the officers on duty
at tbe Dardanelles, to prevent any fui
ther detention of vessels of the Russian
volunteer fleet, were wrongly construed
by the newspapers to be a violation of
existing treaties.
The note concludes with the remark
that no new measure has been adopted,
and that the old one will continue in
force.
CABLE FLASHES.
Abundant harvests are reported from
most of the Turkish provinces.
The Grand Duchess Paul, wife of the
youngest brother of the Czar of Russia,
is dead.
The amount of bullion withdrawn
from the Bank of England, Thursday,
was £100,000 for shipment to America.
An express train running between
Burgos and San Sebastien, Spain, col
lided with a passenger train. Fourteen
people were killed and twenty-four
wounded.
Winter crops will be scanty in Russia,
and a renewal of the famine is appre
hended in 1892. The failure is due to
bad weather, late Bowing and unwilling
ness to use grain for sowing during the
famine.
British Appointments.
London, Sept. 24. —Baron de Worms
is offered the position of foreign secre
tary in succession to Fergusßon, ap
pointed poßtmaster-general.
The Chronicle says Lord Lyton will

present grand jury is not a legal body,
and that its snbpiena need not there
fore be obeyed.

A TUCSON TRAGEDY.
A Prominent Physician Shot by His Di
vorced Wife's Attorney.
Tucson, Sept. 24.—Dr. John C. nan
dy, a prominent physician of this city,
was shot today by Francis J. Heney, a
lawyer, and probably fatally wounded.
A bitter feeling existed between them
for a long time, growing out of a divorce
suit in which Heney was the attorney
for Mrs. Handy. Handy says today .as
he was crossing the street going to the
court house, Heney ran from his office
near by with a pistol in his hand.
Handy tried to grab the weapon, but
Heney placed the muzzle to the bowels
of his victim and shot. Both then
clinched and fell to the grouud. They
were separated by citizens. Handy
walked to his office, and Heney went to
the court house to surrender htmselh
No officer being found there, he went

gher, tbe well known pugilist, was yes
terday arrested by Constable Creed on a
warrant sworn out by Dr. Cramptou, on
a charge of vagrancy. Gallagher was
taken before Judge Simpton, but was
released on his own recognizance. It
appears that the people of that burg
have become so exasperated at the law
less acts of this class of visitors that
they have determined to make it very
warm for them in the future.
A Coffee Corner Collapsed.
New York, Sept. 24.—An effort has
been made by some members of the cof
fee exchange to squeeze the market, but
the attempt resulted in failure. Three
or four leading firms in the New York
exchange had been attempting to bull
the market for September coffee for some
time. Unfortunately for them, they ran
afoul of European bears and big receipts
in the cities of Brazil. Coffee began to
go down, and in spite of the efforts of
the bull clique, it kept going lower. Yes
terday there was a further drop from 50
to 85 points. In a week the price of
September coffee has gone down 1 cent
a pound, or about $1.33 a bag.

DOCKWEILER'S FIND.
HE DETECTS SOME VERY POOR
STREET WORK.
A Street Inspeotor Found Doreliot in
Overseeing Some Paving Work on
Aliso Street—The Situation as Re
ported.
City Engineer Dockweiler yesterday
showed up what appears to be a delib
erate violation of a paving contract, the
tacts of which clearly demonstrate the
inefficiency of aUleaet one man in the
street department.
Several weeks ago the council passed
an ordinance to pave Aliso street, be
tween Alameda and Los Angeles streetE.
The work was let to a paving company
which sublet the laying of the gutters
to Conrad Scheerer, in consideration of
his having worked up the job. The
work was ordered done under the reg
ular specifications, which provide that
the gutters shall have a concrete founda
tion four inches in thickness.
The northern side of the street was
first paved and the street superintend
ent had an inspector on the work to see
that the specifications were complied
with.
Mr. Dockweiler happened along one
day and found that the inspector had
been guilty of gross neglect. The gut
ters were laid, not upon a concrete foun
dation hut upon nothing but plain
gravel. He saw the contractor and told
him that unless the specifications were
complied with he would see that the
work was condemned. By reason of this
the gutter was torn up and relaid in a
proper manner.
Upon the completion of the north side
of the street the southerly portion was
given attention, and four days ago the
engineer took a look at it. He found
that Scheerer was attempting to do the
same thing as upon the former work,
and again be read the riot act.
In giving the facts to a reporter yes
terday Mr. Dockweiler said that Mr.
Scheerer was told four days ago that the
specifications be lollowed,.ind that
he promised to have the work properly
done, which he did not do.
The engineer informed a number of
members of the council yesterday after
noon of the violation of the specifica
tions and a visit was paid to the place.
An inspection of the work showed
clearly that the inspector has not attend
ed to his duty. At a point near the inter
section of Aliso and Lob Angeles streets
there is a slight trace of cement in the
composition supposed to be concrete,
but which is so soft that it can be dug
up with the heel of the boot with very
little exertion.
The foundation is little more than
sand mixed with pieces of broken ce
ment pavement, and instead of being a
solid and compact mass it is loose and
can be easily scattered.
But this part is excellent as compared
with what has been put in nearer Ala
meda street, and upon which tha granite
blocks have already been laid. The
workmen were ordered to take up some
of the blocks, and the engineer reached
down and dug away the "concrete"
with his hands. It was almost identi
cal with the natural soil beneath, and
utterly valueless as a foundation sub
stance.
The councilmen expressed themselves
very freely and forcibly upon what they
characterized as a deliberate attempt to
violate the contract and specifications,
and the city engineer said he believed
the inspector to be either "a fool or a
knave."
The street superintendent was giveu
a scorching all around, and the council
men are now asking themselves how
many contracts have been violated un
der the eyes of incompetent inspectors.
The contractor who is paving the
street ordered work stopped, and the
gutter will be torn out and relaid before
the work is accepted.

H. Jay Hanchette.

All the Characteristics of the
Lost Man—Details of
the Meeting.
The Hanchette mystery has taken a
new turn. It will be remembered that
Robert Farrell, of VVhittier, wrote to
the chamber of commerce some weeks
ago that he had met the missing secre
tary of the chambar of commerce on a
train going from Tehama to Chino.
This letter was published in the Her
ald and was supplemented in a few days
by a letter purporting to come from
H. A. Mitchell. The letter was dated
Chico, but the writer said he was a San
Franciscan. He admitted having met
Farrell, who, he said, took him for Han
chette, and he vilified Mr. Farrell very
strongly. Mr. Mitchell, however, utter
ly failed to tell anything about himself.
As a result of the publication of the
Mitchell letter in the San Fran.isco Ex
aminer, Mr. Farrell writes as follows to
that paper:
To the Editor of tub Examiner—Sir :
I see in your issue of the 16th that a let
ter had been written from your city by
a man calling himself H. A. Mitchell, or
the double of H. Jay Hancnette. In his
letter to J. D. Lynch, of the Los Angeles
Herald, he relates meeting me on the
train from Tehama to Chico. Ido not
know what he said about me, nor do I
care, but the facts of my meeting
H. J. Hanchette, former secretary of
the chamber of commerce of Los Angeles,
on September 9th are about as follows:
On entering the smoker of the train at
Tehama, bound for Chico, the person I
saw was Hanchette. He was in a seat
on the lefthand Bide of the car as I en
tered. I thought I had come in contact
with a ghost, but on close investigation
I found that it was really Hanchette.
His dress was the same as I have seen
him have on in Los Angeles; his beard
waß in the same shape, only a little
longer. The clothing was a little more
worn than when I last saw him. His
manner and actions were just the same;
that nervous way in which he has al
ways acted was still there, but the mo
ment he saw me he became excited and
changed his seat. Not wishing to make
any mistake, I watched him closely un
til there was no further doubt in my
mind that I waß right. I then went up
to him and slapped him on the shoulder,
saying at the same time, "Hanch, old
man, how are you, and where did you
drop from?" At this he looked con
fused and did not speak for perhaps a
minute. Then I was surprised to hear
him say, in a heavy bass voice, that his
name was Hamilton and that I had mis
taken my man. This I laughed at,though
the voice was not the old-time voice of
my friend Hanchette, but with all the
arguments I could bring forth he still
said his name was Hamilton. When I
asked him when he was going to return
to Los Angeles he said he had never
heard of the place, and the only admis
sion he would make was that he had a
wife and children, but where he would
not say. On arriving at Chico he walked
up town and I did not see him again for
two or three hours, when I met him on
Main street, near the Park hotel. There
I renewed my talk with him. He would
not deny knowing me, nor would he say
he did know me. I mentioned the times
he and I had while both on the Herald
in Los Angeles—he as city editor and
myself as collector. I mentioned to him
several names intimately known to both
of us, also a little mining speculation
that we had once, but to all this he
laughed, as only H. Jay Hanchette
could. Now, then, when I saw him my
first thought was to detain him until his
family could be heard from, but this I
found I could not do, as he seemed to
be minding hie own business; then, as
he told me he was going to leave right
away for the Pine Nut country, it would
do no good to telegraph to Los Angeles, so
I wrote to Frank Wiggins, of the cham
ber of commerce, but, I assure you, not
with the intention of making any sensa
tion such as Mitchell, of San Francisco,
would have the Herald believe. I have
just received a letter and photograph
from Mrs. Hanchette, and now, looking
on the picture, I am positive that I
have not made any mistake. I have
shown the photograph to a number of
people here, and they claim that they
saw this man here about the 14th or
15th of this month, but that he did not
have anything to say to any one.walked
a great deal and carried a cane and
brown overcoat, the same as he had in
Chico. No, sir; the fact that I worked
in the same office with Hanchette and
knew him intimately up to the time he
left for Chicago precludes the possibility
of my being mistaken in my friend
Hanchette. Mitchell x>i San Francisco
may fool some people, but he can't fool
me'; and as I don't believe in ghosts I
am certain that I never met Mitchell;
but that I did meet Hanchette there is
no doubt in my mind, but he is wander
ing in his mind. He talked more about
mining than anything else; but where
he went to from her. I cannot ascertain,
but if I should meet him again I will
stay by bim. I am traveling in this
section for a San Francisco firm, but my
home is in Whittier, Los Angeles coun'
ty, and there I will return when my
contract is finished, which will be in
about one month. Hoping that you
will give this space in your paper, I
remain yours truly,
Robert Farrell.
