TARIFF TALK OUT WEST.
Minnesota Now Claimed to Be a Doubtful
State-Growing Demand for a Heduction

Naw Yons, July 81.-Congresman W.
L. Scott had not recovered from his illness
enough to be present at the first meeting
of the Democratic Executive Committee
after its organization at the headquarters
on West Twenty-ninth street today. lie
sent a mnbetitute. The meeting was, of
course, secret. The session lasted several
hours, which were spnt in discussing the
plans for the campaign. Chairman Brice
presided. Speaker Carlisle and Senator
Gorman were the two most prominent men
present. Speaker Carlisle and Senator
Kenna of West Virginia came on from
Washington to represt at the Congressional
Democratic Committee and to decide with
the National Executive Committee on the
campaign plans. Both of them were in
Speaker Carlisle said that he was glad
there were no personalities in this cam
paign. "It's a campaign of principles,'
he said. "The issue is clear and all we
have to do to win is to present the issues t<
the people and have them understood. We
have a great issue and a great leader. We
are keeping apace with the times in states
manship, while the Republicans have no
advanced since 1861. I think the chancee
of Democratic success have not been bette:
mince the war."
REPORTS FROM TiE STATES.
Senator Kenna said that West Virginie
will give Cleveland twice the majority i
gave him in 1884, and that the Republican
never have a possibility of carrying th
State in a Presidential election, and Senato
*orman said that Mar'land would go Dem
ocratic, of course. 'ihe most interestin
of the campaign reports made to the corn
mittee came from the committeemen fron
the Northwest. Michael Doran, of Mirn
nesota; O. M. Barnes, of Michigan; J. J
Richardson, of Iows, and Erskine M1
Phelps, of Illinois, made favorable report
of the prospects in their States. Mr. Dora
said that the passage of the Mills bill b
the House of Representatives would gal
thousands of votes for the Democrats i
Minnesota if the Republican Senators pre
vented its becoming a law. The feeling i
Minnesota was strongly in favor of a re
duction of the tariff. On this issue th
Democrats had steadily been gaining unti
from being one of the strongest Republ

Democrats, and Knute Nelson, one of tb
two Republicans, voted for the Mills bil

THE JACKSON ELECTION.
An XImpartial Statement of the Fact. (
WABUJINGTON, August 8.-The minorit
report of the Senate committee on th
Jackson, Miss., election, where certai
United States officials were charged wit
aiding in suppressing the colore vote, wi
presented to the Senate today. It Is sig ne
by all the Democratic members of the con
mittee, and makes nearly 200 pages<
closely written manuscript. It disagret
with the report of the majority, and finc
that the colored vote was not suppresse
by any organized action of the citizens, an
that none of the United States officials too
part in any movement looking to that en<
or acted in any manner incompatible wit
their dut as officers or citizens having tlf
good of the community at heart.
The report reviews at gieat length tlf
troubles preceding the o'uction. The kil

hekilling of Mitchell by a colored mas
named Whiteside, backed by others-thei
things and the failure of M1ayor McGillt

This proposition was rejected by McGil
but, owing to the general excitement, and
possibly, or the purpose of mnanufacturnin
'political outrage"' material, the negroes de

Castle Garden Immigration Nuta firRepub
leans to Crack--A Cloud of Tanished Po
litical Locusts after Banker Morton's Sub
stance-Bright Democratic Skies in the
NEw YORK, July 10.-The Congres
sional committee appointed to inquire into
the conditions of immigration to this couu
try settle down to business here some days
since. Already developments of an extra
sensational character have come to light.
Passing mention has been made in these
letters of the demoralizing conditions which
surround the importation of pauper labor.
Witness after witness at this investigation
has explained to the committee how the
padrone agents throughout Italy inflame
the working people with gilded accounts
of prosperity over here, by these fairy
tales allure them from their work and
bring them here to feed upon the vitals of
honest American labor. Those blood spec
ulators receive on an average $2.20 for
each poor devil whom they succeed in
landing at Castle Garden. Tho tariff is
paid by the transportation companies in the
shape of a 'commission."
But this is not the Worst of it. Reputa
ble witnesses have testified that it is a com
mon practice on the other side to form so
cieties for the express purpose of trans
porting convicts to this country. No less
a personage than the Regent of Bavaria is
shown to have been actively connected in
proceedings of this sort.
The committee, which seems to be in
dead earnest, will take testimony in this
I city probably throughout the month of Au
3 gust, and then go to Boston. In the result
r of their inquiries the Democratic managers
- foresee a most powerful campaign docu
ment. It is proposed that every citizen
- workman in the close States shall have an
I opportunity of seeing the results of this
system which cuts down his wages-and re
- duces his chances of employment by bring
- lug in:o competition with him men who can
s live in clover on wages which to him mean
I starvation. Apart trom this phase ot the
' question, its social aspect-the Anarchistic,
1 anti-soap end of it-will be made to appeal
1 powerfully to the public conscience.
'ATRIOTS ON THE PILORIMAOE.
Now Is the Inelancholly season of the
year when the professional campaign
shouter gets in his line work. The big
parades, jollifications and general blow
outs are yet a little in front of us, but the
r shouter is expending his lungs in pleasura
t ble anticipation of what the next few weeks
? will bring forth. Since it has become gen
erally known that Boss Platt headed off
his National Committee by securing first
e pull at the Morton "bar'l," the "boys"
have been looking as spruce and chipper as
you can imagine.
Rhinebeck, the splendid country seat of
the banker candidate, is the especial Mecca
to which those patriot pilgrims bend their
footsteps. Like the locusts of Egypt, for
e two weeks past they have been pouring
e down upon the vine-clad preserves of the
e gentleman who is understood to have un
limited "boodle" to dispense for the glory
of the party and the fatuous vanity of Leyi.
The particularly devout are also taking
d in Horkimer, the house of Warner Miller,
on their route. The first requirement for
p your "practical politician" is the keen scent
_ for the aroma of the flesh-pots, and where
t else on earth will you find so much "prac
r tical politics" as here?
y KEMnLE nonts UP AOAIN.
One of the most singular and not the
e least interesting evolution of this campaign
on the Republican side is the reappearance
" of a gentleman who was a conspicuous
character in politics ten years ago, but sud
r denly went into retirement from no fault
of his own. He is none other than the
celebrated apostle of "addition, division
Y and silence." William HI. Kemble, whose
bosship of the Republican party in Penn
sylvania wound up with a sharp turn eight
years ago. Newspaper readers will have
little diticulty In recalling this interesting
-bit of history--howv Kemble and others
were convicted of bribing legislators in
connection with the bills reimbursing rail
V ro"d companies whose property was de
e stroyed In the Pittsburg riots of '77. It
was Kemble who discovered Quay and
b causedl him to be appointed Collector of
s State when this misfortune befell him. It
was Quay, true to his instinctss, who, by
-' virtue of his piosition in the Board of Par
I dons, stoodi between Kemble and the peni
s tentiary when every other resource failed
a him. Kemble, though an enormously rich
d man and still p)residlent of one of the lead
d ing banks of Philadelphia, is to this dlay
k debarred biy his conviction from exercising
any of the functions of citizenship. It is
b doubtful if he wvill succeed in his ambition
e to have his disabilities removedl in time to
vote for Harrison and Morton, but wvord
e comes from the Quaker City that he is the
power behind Quay's throne at Repubilican
-headquarters, and is easily the master spirit
ri of the campaign. The amount of his per
n sonal contribution to the cause of " pure
e politics" Is said to be very large.

MEBUREMENTS O THE SKELETONS.
The skeletons found were discoverc
about ten feet beneath the surface of ti
ground, and the animal lies upon its sit
at an angle of several degrees, the back at
head being nearer to the surface than ti
other parts of the body. The neck is in
bent position, the head being still near
the top of the ground. The body of ti
man was first found, occupying a space
about six and a half feet, with its let
doubled under. The hind quarters of tl
animal, whatever it may he, were first di
covered, and this portion was quite impc
feet. Careful excavation resulted in cor
pletely exposing the form, which is of
large size. The length of the body fro
the breast to the extremity of the him
quarters is 8 feet; from the breast to tl
top of the head is 4 feet; from the top
the head to the extremity of the hind qual
era is 12 feet; the height from the hind fo
to the top of the back is 5 feet, while ti
height of the foreparts is 4 feet. The fo
foot, which has been excavated, is brokc
oil at. the knee-joint and doubled up. TI
hoofs are cloven. The head and nose a
nearly perfect. There are protuberanc
where the eyes and ears were.
PHYSIcIANs MAKE EXAMINATIONs.
The scene around the quarry tod3y i
sembled a camp meeting. Hundreds
people flocked there and the roads we
lined with wagons and carriages. Pron
nently interested in the skeletons are ti
physicians of this city, some of whom ha
left for Philadelphia to see some scientit
savants and have them come down andi
spect the "remains." The quarryma
guard them day and night, and, with, n
tive Jersey shrewdness, charge a nickel f
a peep at the wonderful stone monsters.
State Geologist George H. Cook sent I
assistant, Frank L. Mason, of New Brur

form, which looks like a huge beast carvi
in solid stone, its outline and symmetry t.

t THE OLDEST LIVING DEMOCRAT.
Patrick Collins, Aged 100, HIoper to Vote
for Cleveland an d Thuruan.
e tN. Y. Star, Aug. 2)
The oldest Jeffersonian Democrat of the
I country has been discovered by a Star re
porter. Patrick Collins, of Brooklyn, ac
cording to his own statement, is now 106
j years old, and, even at this advanced age,
It is intelligent and active.
When Mr. Collins left his native county
of Monaghan, Ireland, many years ago, he
came to this country as a railroad laborer.
d For seven or eight years he kept to this
ie work, until for a time his health gave way.
le Nevertheless he persevered and succeeded
d in keeping in comfortable circumstances a
e family of three daughters and two sons.
a A short time ago Mr. Collins was knocked
r down and run over by an express wagon
e in Myrtle avenue. His youngest son,
>f Patrick, and his wife cared for the old
a gentleman as best they could for a time,
e but finally dlded that he would be much
s better oft for a time with the Little Sisters
r- of the Poor at 1)eKalb and Bushwick
a Through the courtesy of the sister in
n charge the Star reporter was allowed an
( interview with Mr. Collins. No one would
e suspect, from his bearing, that the old man
>f carries the weight of 106 years upon his
t. shoulders. lIe is active in body, and his
>t mind is very clear. He suffers from deaf
te ness, and that defect evidently annoys and
re confuses him at times. Notwithstanding
n this, however, Mr. Collins is always affa
le ble, and certainly displayed great interest
re in the affairs of the day.
es "Yes," he said, "I can very distinctly
recall, old as I am, the times of Washing
ton, though I was not an American then,
end I believe I revere and honor his mem
e- ory, but during more recent times, when I
was of an age to take a more active intereat
re in the hopes and aspirations of the country,
'1- Jefferson was my favorite."
ie Mr. Collins Is quite a pedestrian, and
eeven now takes a walk every few days.
c iIe says that he will walk up to the polls
in November as briskly as any of them,

m catboat yesterday afternoon in the lower
bay, they were startled by a big shark ap
's pearmng near the boat. The young ladies
screamedl, and Captain T1applen had all lie
could do to keep the boat from b)eing cap

ir the boat with its big jaws wide open, finally
a- getting so close to the boat that Captain
ay Tfappen could reach it with an oar.
n The Captain remained cool, although his
ik companions continued screaming. WithI
all of his strength lie battered the shark
re over the head with the oar until the 1)100(
'a from1 the man-eater made the water crim

d the shark sank from sight. Captain Tap.
me pen believes that lhe either killed the sharkc
at outright or mortally wounded it. lie says
di that the man-eater looked to be about 12
feet in length. One of the young ladies

County as Uttered by John N.
Adams of the Frirm of McKay
& Adams, Drugglsts.
I have been a practical druggist in Tyler for
number of years, and in that time have had
ocasion to examine, try, and notie the effect
f nearly all tue highly recommended prepara
ions or patent inedicines on the market, and
a I have suffered untold misery myself, the
ast number of yeats, from a severe form of
uieammatory rhoumatism, and could find
iothing to cure or relieve me, I had almost
Irawn a conclusion that all patent medicines
rere more or less frauds until about one year
go, I was Induced by a friend now living In
Pyler to try a preparation known as 0 B, or Do
anio 1lood Balm, and after a long persuasion
in his part I finally made up my mind to make
no more effort to rid myself of the terrible
iliction; and it now affords me the greatest
>ieasure of my life to state to the citizens of
imith county that I am ontirely cured, with no
races of the disease left, and all effected by
.ho maglo hettling properties of B. B. B., which
consider the grandest, purest and most power
ul blood remedy known to man. I have been
ubjoot to imtlammatory attacks since ten
roars of age, and up to the present time have
mad four. The last spell came on me in No
rember,1885, over a year ago, at which time
[ was confined to my bed for eight weeks,
:assing the nights in misery, with no sleep ox
;ept when produced by narcotics and various
>piatos. The week previous to using B. B. B.
ip to that time 1 had only eaten six meals, and
ould scarcely sit up without support; but
ifter using three bottles I was able to relish
ny meals and to walk up town, and after six
bottlos had been used, thank heaven, 1 was en
irely cured, and not the slightest pain felt
dince that time. When I returned to busines
In February, my weight was 145 pounds, but
gradually increased until my regular weight
was again attained, 210 pounds. The noticeable
ract in what I have so cheerfully stated is, that
this unparalleled and remarkable discovery
B. B. B., cured me in mid-winter, at the very
timo my sufferings and misery were the
greatest. I tako it on myself as a practical
Iruggist to heartily, cheerfully, as well as con.
mcientiously recommend this glorious blood
remedy to all sufferers of rheumatism or blooc
troubles, and not only myself, but the firm 01

IT REMOVED THE PIMPLES.
RoUN MOUSTATr, Tax., March 2, 1887.
A lady friend of mine has for several years
been troubled with bumps and pimples on her
face and nook, for which she used various oos
metica in order to remove them and beauUft .'
and improve her complexion: but these loc.
applications were only temporary and left hs
skin in a worse oondition.
I recommended an internal preparation -
known as Botanic Blood lialni - which I havo
boon using and selling about two years; she I
used three bottles and nearly all pimples havo
disappeared, her skin is soft and smooth, and
her general health much improved. She ox
presses herself much gratified, and can recom
