' ATTACKED WITH SICKNESS.
nde Tlmrcnan Prevented From AdtlroM
injr an Immense Andlenoe lit Miulsxon
New YonK, Sept. 7. Madison Square
garden, the great structure which covers
an entire block between Fourth jyid Madi
son avenue, covered a mighty swarm of
people last night on the occasion of the
Democracy's reception to Allen G. Thur
man, and when its holding capacity was
exhausted it served as a center to many
thousands of people who were addre-sed
by speakers upon stands at each corner of
the building. A panic was almost created
by an unnecessary alarm concerning the
stabilitv of the galleries.
Calvin S. Brice called the meeting to or
der, and introduced Hon. Koswell P.
Flower, the first speaker.
While Mr. Flower was still speaking the
crowd near the Mad-.son Square entrance
began to cheer and the cheer swelled and
ran to the body of the hall, down the
Fourth avenue wall, completely
drowning the voice of the speaker
as they announced the coming of Mr.
Thurman. As he made his way to the
platform the cheers were redoubled, lni
danas were waved and the baud struck up
"Hail to the Chief."
Mr. Flower who had not attempted to
continue his speech at once introduced Mr.
Thurman, saying: "Fellow citizen- I
r have the honor to introduce to you the old
J ' Eoman, Allen G. Thurman."
As Mr. Thurman stepped forward to the
speaker's stand and stood erect there,
wiping the perspiration from his face with
the famed bandana, the wildest excite
ment followed. Every one having a seat
jood upon it. Bandanas and flags Were
wavel and the crowd cheered aga 11,
drowning into a muffled sound the strains
of the baud.
The cheering continued for fully five
minutes, and then, in a voice o feeble that
only those withiu a few feet of him could
tell except bj- the motion of his lips that
he was speaking, the Judge said: "Mr.
Chairman, ladies and gentlemen: It has
been said by the Republican papers Mr.v.-c
I was nominated for the Vico-Pi csidenev,
that Allen G. Thurman is an old, fraii,
decrepit and broken-flown man. 1 d&
not know that I should reply to this, a!
though I well know that I am in no condi
tion to-night to speak to an immense au
dience such as this. However, I want to
speak, and in spite of illne-s, I am almost
induced to make the attempt. I beg !ea o,
however, to withdraw, and thank you for
your kind reception."
A hush fell upon the assemblage as all
saw that the hero of the evening was try
ing to speak to them, Lut was unable to do
bo. Colonel Brice and Mr. Flower stepped
forward, and each takingMr. Tluinnan by
the arm, assisted him bick from the
speaker's stand. Ho was almost faint
ing, and for a few minutes was too
sick to be removed from the build
ing. "When he had recovered sufficiently
he was taken iu a carringo directly to tho
ladies' entrance of the Fifth Avenue Hotel,
accompanied I13-Messrs. Brice and Barnum
and his son, Allen "U. Thurman, and was
conducted to his room and attend-d hv
Dr. Goldthwaite, the hotel physician, -m ho
applied remedies and later said that the
distinguished patient would be all right in
an hour or two.

blame me, then, if I call tho groans and

undoubted right to so act as to confer the
greatest amount of good upon his country,
but the question at issue the tariif will
not bo settled when the votes are counted

will not make a change unless tho people
of all the laud make judicious selection of
such members of the National Legislature
as will carry out their wishes when Con

have signed written pledges to work for
measures of reform at the request of mem

of our order is faithfully carried out it
will result m more good than any other."

Jacksonville, Fla., Sept. 7. Yesterday
was tho gloomiest day of the epidemic, as
the death roll was unexpectedly large.
When Dr. Neal Mitchell entered tho exec
utive committee rorms in the morning and
announced six deaths since the previous
eveuing and that soxuo of the patients had
died for the want of skilled nurses, tho
Board of Health was authorized to send to
New Orleaus for as many nurses as might
be needed who had recommendations from
the president of the State Board of Health,
the executive committeo to pay charges.
The gloomiest apprehensions are felt
here and the btterness of the policy that
has shut men aud women in who could
have been sent to places of safety two
weeKs ago had a consistent and well or

BLAINE ON RETALIATION.
He Think Every Thint; Should Bo Post
poned Until After the Election.
New Yoiik, Sept. 4. The Mail and Ex
press correspondent at Ellsworth, Me., has
obtained Mr. Blaine's view on the fishery
policy as follows: "The fishing season is
over. Nearly all the American vessels
have returned and Canada will have none
to operate upon until the summer of 1889.
In the meantime any thing she may or
may not do is a matter of supreme indif
ference to the fishermen; therefore it is
better not to clothe the present President
with any additional powers, since he has
shown his utter incompetency to deal with
the general subject, but let him carry
out the present law as he is bound
to do and and this alone may bring
Canada to her senses and secure us
justice at her hands. For Republicans
to vote for the bill reported by Mr. Bel
mont's committee in the House would be a
confession by them that the President's re
fusal to carry out the law was justified
and would put a power in his hands which
he would wield for partisan purposes. It
is much better to let tho matter lie over till
thenew Administration shall come in.which
will be better prepared to handle the mat
ter free from the excitements of our pend
ing political contests and in ample time to
protect every interest. To allow the pres
ent row to stop the export business of Can
ada through the United States would seri
ously interfere with several of our trans
portation lines, especially those leading to
Portland and correspondingly depress the
entire commerce of that port. It would
also afford Canada a pretext for increas
ing her demands in retaliation for such
inhibition and render more difficult the
general settlement by negotiation. Th
rights of the Pacific coast should also bo
remitted to the new Administration."
A Rather Favorable Report of the Kansas
Topeka, Kan., Sept. 5. The Kansas
Tanner this week presents a very full re
port of crops covering the entire State,
made up of short letters from special cor
respondents. This shows that the State
has not been in as good condition sines
181. unless it be in the number of hogs,
which was reduced greatly last year.
With the exception of half a dozen coun
ties lying on and near the great bend of
the Arkansas the State is in good condition.
Corn in many parts is very heavy in some
parts the heaviest ever raised in the history
of Kansas. "With all the shortages in cer
tain localities the crop for the State as a
whole will probably prove to be the
heaviest ever grown. "Wheat though some
what injured by insects in places will
average eighteen to twenty bushels per
acre and the quality is generally
good. Oats were a little short in some lo
calities, but with the greatly increased
acreage the crop was very large. No ac
curate estimate of the yield can be made
because a great deal is being fed without
threshing. Sorghum is good where ever
5rown and the same is true of millet,
maize and kaffir corn. Broom corn has
done very well in the western counties.
Apples, pears and small fruit have yielded
well. Grass is growing well yet and stock
is in first-class condition. The wheat
acreage will be increased. In the western
part of the State seeding isnow in progress
and the ground is in good condition. Kan
sas crops, with the exceptions noted above,
ore in prime condition.
BATTLE OF THE BAGS.
Looking to India For Help In Fighting the
Galveston, Tox., Sept. 4. Under the
roll of the president of the Cotton Ex
change, an informal meeting of cotton
factors wa held at tho exchange to-day.
Over half of the Galvoston factors were
present. Tho mailing was for the purpose
of discussing the bagging trust, and pro
viding, if possible, some relief to Texas
larmers in escaping its extortions. It was
decided to relegate the matter to the direc
tory of the exchange, who will meet to
morrow to further consider the matter. It
is understood that in Galveston the move
ment will result in an effort to import bag
giug from India and furnish it to the
Texas trade at cheaper prices than under
the present combination, providing assu
rances can be had that the farmers will
pioperly protect a movement looking to
their relief by guaranteeing a purchase of
! the stock thus provided. Tliere was a time
I when American cotton growers used India
bagging exclusively, and, while not so
good as that now manufactured in Amer
ica, its cheapness renders it an available
lever for breaking up the present bagging

Edina, Mo., Sept. 4. Sunday Andy
Howerton, a fanner living just over the

shooting hor and then turned the revolver
on himself and sent a bullet through his
iwn head. Howerton and his wife, for
merly Miss Kennedy, daughter of ft well-to-do
farmer living in the south part of this
county, were married only six mouths ago,
but did not livo happily together, and one
day last week Mrs. Howerton left fier hus
band and went home to her father, where
she stayed till Sunday, when, accompanied
by a brother, she went to the house of her
husband to secure her personal effects.
The husband was at home alone and fol
lowed her up stairs, where she went in
search of her clothing. He endeavored to
effect a reconciliation, in which he failed,
she telling him that she was done with him.
Then he drew a revolver and committed
the terrible deed.

THE CAMPAIGN OPENED.
Great Republican Rally at Lawrence Gov
ernor Martin Addresses the .Multitude
Other Distinguished Speakers A Mag
LAWREXCE,Kan., Sept 7. The Republic
ans of Kansas have reason to be proud of
their first rally of the campaign, which
took place in this city yesterday. Long
before the hour of meeting the great taber
nacle at Bismarck Grove was filled, while
all around were hundreds who stood
throughout the entire meeting.
A telegram was received from Hon. L.
U. Humphrey conveying information of
his illness, and his consequent inability to
attend. Otherwise the programme was
carried out as published. Judge Usher
acted as chairman of the day meet
ings. In opening the meeting, he
said: "We have met here to-day to
do honor to the soldier and the soldier's
friend; and while we give no thought to the
man who never placed a flower on the dead
heroes' graves, nor who ever even plucked
a flower to place there; who never visited
the cemeteries of our brave dead, but who
went fishing on a day when the Nation
mourned, we must give some attention to
the misdeeds of tho party whose policy he
dictates." The Judge then briefly reviewed
the acts of the present Administration, and
when he concluded Governor Martin was
introduced and delivered the address of
welcome to tho Republicans of the State. He
said that when he read thoannnouncement
that he was to deliver the address of
welcome it struck him as being incongru
ous as he did not believe the time had ever
been when it was necessary to welcome
the Republican party to the historic city
a city and county that had never faltered
in its devotion to the party. He said this
is a Republican yenr and the people would
elect a Republican President He referred
to the false pretenses of the Democratic
party that had secured control by accident
and false pretenses, and instead of de
creasing had increased the offices. The
Democrats demanded to look at the books,
and having secured that privilege found
everything straight every dollar in the
treasury. They promised a reduction of
the surplus, but instead had increased it.
Tho Republican Administrations for twenty-four
years conducted the business of
the country with absolute integrity
The Democrats, he continued, now
propose to reduce the surplus by reducing
the tariff and have passed tho Mills bill
with that end in view. In his judgment,
and he believed when the facts are pre
sented all intelligent people will concur,
that the way to reduce the surplus is not
through a reduction of the tariff. A pro
hibitive tariff would shut off tho surplus
immediately. A reduction of the tariff
would simply increase the receipts of the
Government by reason of increased im
portation of foreign goods. He asserted
the belief that the Democratic party is to
day as it was in 1860, and as it was for
years before the war, a free trade party.
The Democratic party is a constitutional
coward. It was unfortunate in some re
spects that the Oregon election was
held when the Democratic convention
was in session in St. Louis, for it
furnished a warning in time to save
them from a complete indorsement
of free trade, and he read an extract from
the Confederate constitution in proof of
his assertion. Tho Southern people, he
continued, were then and are now a free
trade people. Its representatives in both
houses of the Confederate Congress adopted
the clause read and entered into a great
war to perpetrate human slavery and to
establish free trade, the Siamese twins of
the rebellion. General Taylor, of the Con
federate army, in a recent article, declares
that the North was victorious because by
reason of tho protective tariff they had
built up factories and were thus able to
arm, equip and clothe their soldiers.
And now these people are again at
tempting to do in Congress what
they failed to do in the field destroy tho
manufacturing industries of this country
by establish'ng fre tnde. In closing, the
Governor said: "We havo for a candi
date a patriot soldier. Tho Democrats
have for their candidate a Northern cop
perhead. "When the war enmo on Grover
Cleveland was twenty-four years of age.
He had neither wiTe nor child to koep him

He never spoke a word in her behalf. No
living man can point out a singlo act or a
single word of Grover Cleveland's that

On the other hand Benjamin Harrison was
a young married man. Ho had a wife and
two children. He had just been elected to
a remunerative office. "When his country

Manhattan Club, sixty torches and Topeka

queted at the rink by the ladies. When
the line was formed the Cyclones, sixty
torches, Fred Douglass, sixty torches and
the Union League, thirty torches, all of
this city joined the visitors. The
fireworks display covered four blocks and
added great splendor to the occasion. It
was nine o'clock when the masses reached
the park, where two stands were erected,
and speaking began. Ex-Governor George
T. Anthony, General Caldwell and Hon.
Joseph Adv addressed the multitude.- It
was estimated that fully 5,000 people were
gather around each stand, while the
throngs witnessing the display on the
streets could not have been less than 18,000

successful in interest and numbers of any

THE ENGLISH OUTLOOK
A rhllosophlcil View of tho Situation No
Extraordina.y Distress Avtlrlp-tted. Not
withstanding: the Partial Failure of the
London, Sept 3. Tho stout-hearted or
philosophical statisticians of Englnn-l
protest that they do not anticipate any ex
traordinary distress among the poor dur
ing the coming winter in consequence of
the partial failure of the wheat crop here,
necessitating the importation of an un
usual quantity of bread-stuffs. To be
sure tho premises of these gentlemen,
presumably situated very comfortably
themselves, appear to be based on that
common quality of mind which enables
u o bear the misfortunes of others with
becoming resignation, but the same view
of the matter appears to bo taken by somo
of the leading metropolitan and'
provincial journals, notably tho Times
and the Manchester Guardian, and their
views are probably the result of caroful
consideration. It is true tnat the inter
ests of England are so varied that a
partial obsorvar is ant to overlook mnnv
circumstances which go far to qualify
what seem an indisputable calami
ty. The crops have tailed, and
tTiA nmnHtv of whent to bo
imported is much larger than usual. The
loss falls first upon the farmers and agri
cultural laborers, but the former appear
to still subsist after being ruined from
year to year, and the latter, with somo
little relief, appear to get along in somo
manner. The industrious poor of
tho great cities, miserable enough
now, will feel the pressure, ot
course, much more than tho others.
Bread has gone up, and the hard strug
gle is intensified, but great efforts nro
being made to alleviate the condition of
the worthy, and the brnzen class, who
seldom or never work, will live in their
One thing is certain: the trade of tho
publicans is falling off, and will undoubt
edly be duller still before the winter H
over. As a rule, the poorer the district,
the more numerous the gin-shop3. but
perhaps If the working class discover
that they can drink less liquor without
nnv dreadful consequences befalling
them, they may be induced o discon
tinue, r at least curtail, a habit which
absorbs no small share of their scanty
wages. Tho. general trade of the country
might bo much better, but it has soen
periods of still greater depres
sion In commercial affairs, things
look bright Th9 shipping interest
has received a great impulse and
bids fair to be still more thriving. The
demand for vessels, especially steamers,
can not be supplied, and if many wrecks
do not take place during the ensuing
months it will be surprising, for every
old hulk and ocean tramp will be afloat

Indiana' "Floatinjr Vote."
"Washixqtos, Sept 3. Representativt
O'Neil, of Indiana, expresses some faith

What makes Indiana so uncertain," ha
said, 'is the floating vote, or. as we terra
it, the managBablo vote.' It al
ways has existed in our State,
and I suppose always will so
long as there is a large and easily
accessible campaign fund. If we ran
secure forty per cent, of that floating vote
wo can carry the State: if we don't then
indeed, our case is gone up Salt river for
a somewhat lengthy cruise. Do I suppose
that the President's $10,000 will capture
any of tho floaters? Probably; but wo
need more cash than that"

ing again at some chance encounter of
30und or scent, casts its shadow over
the eye for an instant, and you have
uo sympathy with it. What old joy
makes the heart beat more quickly
and you know nothing of it! With
the best desires for union, for complete
knowledge of each other, for absolute
confidence, for life melting Into life,
a thousand inextricable, inexplicable
little threads catch and hold you in
their meshes, imprison you, lead you
and keep you apart. The mother, too,
who thinks her little dauerhtcr is ut
terly at one with her, has never a
thought unshared with her, might find,
could she but penetrate the recesses
of the child's heart, a life
as distinct from the outer one
lived all unconsciously, but a necessary
fact of identity and individual develop
ment and growth, as the ripening seed
is distinct from the corolla of the
flower. Many of these souls desire
and long to approach each other, to
become a part each of the other, to
lay aside this loneliness. But yet it is
in loneliness they must tread the wine
press of their sufferings, only in less
loneliness must drink their draught
0f joy a loneliness that can only be
laid aside with life, if even then. And
the most awe-inspiring fact of all this
loneliness is the loneliness of death at
last, the going down alone into the
depths of the dark river, tho proof of
its cold waters, the moment when
neither pitying face nor loving lips
nor helping hand can reach us, the en
trance into the unknown; alone but for
the trust that wo came into this world
only to be met with loving arms, it is
loving arms again that shall meet us
there; alone unless a great hope walks
with us, a hope wnicn must aiso nave
walked with us here if we would have
its companionship when the waters
close around us, without which the
loneliness is indeed appalling, but with
which it ceases to be known, or to be
felt, or to exist. Harpers Bazar.
HUNTING THE CARIBOU.
A Sport That Calls lor Discretion, Coolness
and Considerable Skill.
At this season of the year he ap
proaches every little patch of water
against the wind, and with the feel
ings of a ticket-holder at a lottery
drawing. Should he be in luck he by
no means opens fire at once. The herd
derives its impulse from its leader, as
the steam-engine does from the en
gineer. Withdraw either from his
control, and though the power is still
there, that which gave it direction is
gone. So, hardly breathing under the
intense excitement of tho moment, he
studies tho movements of the herd
with the keenest attention. Having
seleoted his victim, a well-directed
bullet knocks it sprawling on the ice.
In an instant all is confusion. The
herd circlo around their fallen leader,
totally at a loss what to do, until some
other assumes the place of the fallen,
and all break for the shelter of the
woods. If the hunter is then a quick
and sure shot, the interval is not un
improved. But if the pond is 6mall and closely
siirrniindpd with forest and hill, the
first shot echoes from the opposite side J
with a distinctness wnicn snouia pe
heard to be fully appreciated, and re
echoes again and again. The startled
herd seem confronted in every direc
tion by explosions, and every avenue
of escape appears closed. Utterly de
moralized they circlo about, swinging
their heads from side to side, sniffing
the air in tho vain endeavor to locate
the danger and divine the path to safe
ty. If the rifle be then in the hands
of a butcher and not a sportsman, all
mav fn.ll before driven to desperation
to take any chance for the sake of cov
er, one bursts for the woods. The
rest, if any, instantly follow this ini
tiative, and many and many a mile will
intervene before the pace slackens to a
walk. Henry P. Wells, in Harper's
Bobby (whispering) "Didn't I
hear Clara tell you, Mr. Featherly,
that she was sorry, but she really
couldn't give you a lock of her hair?"
Featherly "Sh, Bobby er yes."
Bobby "Well, you just wait a day or
two, and I'll get some for you when
she's out." Harper's Bazar.

A Horse Defends a Goat.
A remarkable illustration of the sa
gacity of the horse reaches the Bir
mingham (England) Mail from Gillott
Road, Edgbaston. A man named Gil
bey, a coal dealer and hauler, rents a
field there, in which a horse and goat
have been in the habit of running. Re
cently a gang of young roughs from
the Ickneid Port Road have amused
themselves by throwing stones at the
goat, and some of the more cowardly
of the ruffians beat it with a stick.
Whenever the goat has been attacked
in this way the horse has always raced
to its rescue, and a few days ago he
seized one of the young rascals by the
coat collar and flung him clean over
the hedge into the road.
How to Help Your Digestion.
Almost every day wo feel the unpleasant
sensations of indigestion. Try Allcock's
Pokocs Plasters and be relieved. J. F.
Davenport, of Canarsle, New York, writes:
I havo been very much troubled with a
violent pain below my chest bone. I was
told by several physicians that it was
rheumatism of the diaphragm. It resulted
from cold and exposure. I had very little
appetite and digested my food with great
difficulty. I placed one Allcock's Porous
Plaster below tho breast bone and two on
each side. In the course of twenty-four
hours all pain ceased, and I was able to
eat and digest a good square meal, some
thing I had not done beforo in two weeks.
I got better constantly, and at the end of
seven days found myself entirely welL
Since then I have used Allcock's Porous
Plasters for colds, coughs and pains in
my side, and I have always found them
quick and effective.

men, can do his best work when in a critr
