NEWS OF THE MORNING.
Id the House yesterday Durham, from the
Committee eu Mines and Mining, reported a
bill to amend the statutes concerning min
eral lands. It provides that when a miner
has located a claim and t he Government has
delayed to issue a patent for such land, the
miner shall not ln the interim be required to
do $100 worth of work per year, as he Is now
required to do. The bill was passed.
The President has referred to Congress the
whole question of the Extradition Treaty
with England. It Is now decided that the
abrogation of the Webster-Ash burton treaty
shall be recommcneed, and that the position
of our Government in the Winslowcase shall
be fully maintained in any future negotia
tions for a new treaty.

It is curious that the Republican

management of tbe government, and
yet endorses Grant's administration.
Is there no inconsistency in politics ?

Republicans claim that Hayes is
in full sympathy with the spirit of re
form. That's what they all say before
election, but once elected they are in
full sympathy with the thieves and
rascals who are robbing the people.
Hayes endorses Grant's administra
tion, and this shows how sincere is his
profession of sympathy with the spir
it of reform.
The energetic men who have so
long labored in developing the oil
mines of San Fernando are about to
reap the reward of their patience and
industry. A flowing well has been
struck within the last few days which
pours forth an average of fifty barrels
ofoilperday. This oil is reported as
much lighter and of a great deal fiver
quality than that previously procured.
This is encouraging and gives promise
of a yield which will secure the for
tunes of those who have spent so much
time and money in prospecting these
mines. As depth is attained confi
dence increases that the San Fernan
do mountains will prove an oil region
equalling in richness and quality
the best petroleum localities of Penn
sylvania. We congratulate our oil
men on the success which has reward
ed their efforts, and we hope they
may secure, not one, but fifty flowing
A Hypocritical Platform.
Leading Republican jouruals are
deploring the weakness of a number
of planks in the Cincinnati platform,
and mildly deprecating the vacillating
character of the whole structure.
The civil service plank is so palpably
weak that the intelligent members of
the party do not hesitate to express
the opinion that it is a mere subter
fuge, promising but little aud indicat
ing that even that little will not be
performed. < The truth is that the
party is only held together by the de
sire for plunder, and an honest adher
ence to a strong civil service plank
would at once destroy the incentive
to be a member of the Republican
party. Tbe convention understood
what was expected of it, and made a
pretense to do a thing it well knew it
must not do. Civil service reform
will do for Republican leaders to talk
about, but it will never do for them
to practice it. The financial problem
is another of the issues the convention
was compelled to handle in a hypo
critical and sub rosa manner. The
Republican party is responsible for
the financial chaos in which the coun
try is involved. It cannot therefore
condemn tbe system without admit
ting its own acts to be weak, if not
corrupt. It does not intend to remove
the difficulty, and consequently it
avoids positive promises and plans in
its platform, a plank that means any
thing or nothing at all. The Chinese
plank Is the most rotten of all that go
to make up the rotten structure. It
is a flagrant attempt to avoid the
issue, and asserts nothing save the
desire of the party to toady to capital.
Taken as a whole, the Cincinnati
platform is a string of glittering gen
eralities, promising nothing yet de
signed to deceive the people into the
belief that great reforms are proposed,
Where iv fact none are intended.
The Next President.
The telegraph announces that the
Democratic National Convention last
evening nominated Governor Sam
uel J. Tilden of New York as the
Democracy's candidate for President.
In our opinion the Convention has se
lected the ablest and best man of the
array of able and good men who were
candidates for the position. Tilden
is a statesman, and his public record
is without spot or blemish. As Gov
ernor of New York he has inaugura
ted and successfully carried out re
forms that have saved the people mil
lions of dollars. If he is elected Presi
dent, as he undoubtedly will be, re
trenchment and reform will be some
thing more than a campaign battle
cry. Principles will be acted upon,
not merely talked about. The St.
Louis Convention has performed its
work nobly and in a spirit that prom
ises the reform the people so much
We thought, indeed, we had reason
to hope, the Republicans had selected
candidates for President and Vice Pres
ident with untarnished records. It
was the boast of the leaders that they
had chosen candidates whose public
acts were so few and unimportant that
they could not be forced to assume the
defensive at the very opening of tbe
campaign, aud therefore their chances
for election were better than those of
men who were open to attack. There
are, however, already signs that imply,
a mistake somewhere, and if thiugsgo
on as they have commenced we fear
these candidates will be found to not
only have a record, but a record that
is far from being as unspotted as that
of gentlemen aspiring to such high
and honorable positions should be. A
Plattsburg correspondent of tbe New
York Sun gives the following frag
ment of the record of the candidate
for Vice Presideutr
In 1846 or 1847 Mr. Wheeler, then as
now an aspirant for political prefer
ment, was known as a Whig. Not
withstanding this fact he obtained the
Democratic nomination for District
Attorney by pledging his word in the
strongest terms to several of the lead
ing Democrats of Malone and its vi
cinity that he would then and there
after act with their party. The Whigs,
uususpectiug his party fidelity were
influenced to nominate Mr. Wheeler
also. Whereupon he went back on
bis Democratic friends and his pledge,
aud even denied tiie promise that was
hardly cola on his lips. This denial,
however, was met and sufficiently
contradicted|by tbe affidavits or seve
ral gentlemeu who had been privy to
tbe violated compact.
As another instance of Mr. Whee
ler's inflexible integrity, I am told
that wheu a member of the Assembly
he was employed by Mr, Frederick
Ames, of Essex county, to purchase
on account of said Ames a piece of
State laud,located uear the State pris
on at Danuemora. On looking into
the matter Mr. Wheeler decided that
there was money in the speculation,
and that he could find more profit in
buying the land as principal than as
agent. He couuseled With oue Dou
f'lass, a clerk in his law office at Ma
one, and the twain became possessed
of the land, which was purchased in
When Mr. Ames found, upon appli
cation at the Land Office, that the
plum had been picked by a certain
Douglass, he went to the Hon. Mr.
Wheeler to inquire why and where
fore. Mr. Wheeler insisted that it was
all a mystery to him, and that he
didn't know much about Douglass,but
understood he was half lawyer, half
horse jockey,and lived in Chateuagay.
The true inwardness of the transac
tion came out afterward in court dur
ing the trial of a suit brought by this
same Douglass against the Hon. Wm.
M. Wheeler, his partner in the land
speculation, to compel him to divide
the profits. Mr. Ames appeared as a
witness, and hia testimony put Mr.
Wheeler in such a light that tbe lat
ter hastened to compromise the suit
by paying Douglass his sharaaand the
Of course nobody can tell how Mr.
Wheeler's reputation for integrity will
be supported by the investigation of
Northern Pacific affairs. Mr. Wheeler
was chairman of the House commit
tee on this railroad, and if he, like
Blame and Colfax, should have to
walk the plank, it will at least be a
crumb of comfort to his friends to
know Unit the Hon. Chairman lacks
uot of this world's riches.
Hayes, the Republican candidate
for President, is Governor of Ohio. He
was elected on a popular theory
against a very unpopular platform,
yet he barely escaped defeat—receiv
ing but 3,000 majority in a State
which gave in 1860 a Republicau ma
jority of 21,000; in 1861 of 66,000; in
1863 of 101,000; in 1864 of 60,000; in
1868 of 42,000, and in 1872 of 34,000.
Yet this man, who we are assured is
such a popular candidate, could only
carry the State when lie had but a
rag-baby for au oppenent by 3,000 ma
jority. Such popularity will hardly
carry Mr. Hayes to the White House.
About Hotel Charges.
Editor Herald:—My attention is
called to a communication in this
morning's issue of the Herald signed
by a man named H. W. Rose, who
complains of high charges. The facts
are simply these: Rose, wife and
child (not baby) registered at this
hotel on Saturday, 6 p. m., and re
mained until Sunday evening, making
a full day, at $2.50 each and $1.00 for

pleaded poverty I accepted $5.00.

A STERLING PLATFORM.
Governor Tilden Nominated on the
St. Louis, June 28th.—The Conven
tion re-assembled at 2:1") P. M.
The Committee on Resolutions re
ported tbe following platform:
It declares the administration of the
Federal Government in needof imme
diate reform, and reaffirms tiie confi
dence of the Democracy in tiie perma
nence of the Union and devotion to
the Constitution. It declares for the
supremacy of the civil over the mili
tary power, and the separation of
Church and State. The following re9
olution charges the Republican party
with fraud and corruption. Tbe finan
cial plank charges tbe Republican
party with preventing a return to spe
cie payments, and declares lor a repeal
of tbe resumption act of Itt"s,and asks
in substance for a more elt'ectivt' case.
The next resolution declares in favor
of reform in Federal taxation, and de
nounces the present tariff as a master
piece of false pretence, and charges
that it has paralyzed the industries for
the benefit of the few. The next is a
declaration in favor of economy, and
charges that since the peace the people
have paid thrice the sum of the public
debt. The next charges the Republi
can party with having thrown, away
the public lauds of the reservations.
The next denounces the course of the
Republican party in making treaties
that do not protect the adopted citizen
in the exercise of his rights in foreign
countries. The next denounces Mon
golian immigration,declaring that the
women are imported for immoral pur
poses, and the men are hut little bet
ter than slaves. The next declares ln
favor of civil service reform. The
next arraigns Blame, Delano, Wil
liams, Bcheuck. Babcock and Belknap
for corruption in office, aud charges
that corruption is the legitimate
growth of the policy of the Republican
party, and that the government can
only be purified by a change of admin
istration—a change In measures and
General Ewiug of Ohio presented
the minority report. One portion of
the platform commands that tbe reso
lution be amended, and the uncondi
tional and immediate repeal of the re
sumption act is demanded. The mi
nority report is signed byThos.Ewing
of Ohio, Voorhees of Indiana, Brown
of Tennessee, Hayes of Pennsylvania.
Trumbull of lowa, Davis of West Vir
ginia, Davies of Kansas and Hardin
Ewing moved to amend and was
seconded by Mr. Eaton of Kansas.who
spoke in its favor and gave as his rea
sons for supporting it that the majori
ty report only demanded the repeal of
that f ortion of the resolution on the
resumption of specie payments, leav
ing tiie rest of the law staud thus: By
Information the Democratic party to
A delegate moved that Ewing's
time be extended, but there were
many objections and Ew ing declined
to speak, and amid great excitement
and confusion took his seat. Mr. Cox
of New York rose to a point of order
and claimed that he was entitled to
the floor after Ewing, and had been
recognized. The Chair ruled him out
of order. Several delegates endeav
ored to be heard and great confusion
reigned. The Chairman said if order
was not kept he would have the noisy
Gov. Doosheimer of New York took
the floor and said he wanted the issue
made as between hard money and
soft [great cheering]. If the gentle
men who signed the minority repre
sentatives were so attached to soft
money they ought to cast their votes
lor the idea pure and simple. Refer
ring to Peter Cooper, he said the ma
jority had compromised the matter
against the protests of the Democrats
ofthe East. If you adopt the minori
ty report you ruight as well abandon
their hopes of success. Dr. Dooshei
mer concluded with the motion.
The Convention now, at 3:50 P, M.,
is in the utmost confusion over the
question of hard and soft money.
Pennsylvania has asked leave to re
tire for consultation.
From appearances it does seem that
they cannot get to vote on the nomi
nees torat least two hours. They may
possibly harmonize in less time.
Uov. Dooslieim concluded with a
motion for the adoption of the majori
ty report, and on this demanded v call
of the States.
Mr. Vorhees followed in avdocacy of
the minority report and said that this
Convention must consult the interests
ofthe mighty West [loud cheers]. For
the past twelve years the Democratic
party had followed New York to dis
aster and the people of the West were
growing weary of it.
Mr. Waterson spoke in favor of the
adoption of the majority report. He
hoped the Convention would reverse
the action of the minority and victory
would be assured,and settle this dang
Some delegates demanded the floor.
Mr. Abbot demanded live minutes of
his time, but Mr. Waterson refused,
whereon Abbot called for a division of
the was in favor of hard
money. He did not w iut the resump
tion aut repealed.
At 4:30 p. M. the Tilden hard money
men ctrried the platform by a vote of
660 to 259, upon which there was loud
Mr "ox of New York took the Moor
and insisted that under the rules the
delegates occupying the platform
should go to the seats assigned them
on the floor. The Chair decided the
point well taken, and several dele
gates took the t!oor. One protested
against what he called application
law. Another asked for order.
Mr. Wallace of Pennsylvania asked
leave for the Pennsylvania delegates
to retire for consultation. Granted.
Doolittle then moved to adjourn
and was heartily seconded by Eaton
of Kansas. Further discussion fol
lowed and another motion to adjourn
made and lost. In the great excite
ment the vote on the striking out re
sulted in 220 majority against. The
question came upon the adoption of
the majority report with the following
result: Yeas, 651; noes, 53.
Abbott of New Jersey presented the
name of Gov. Joel Parker, and moved
him above all others. He could cer
tainly carry New Jersey and the
Senator Kernan, amid great ap
plause, presented Gov. Tilden. He
trusted to tbe judgment of the dele
gates. Swayed by nothing bin love of
their country, it was their duty to look
to the success of Gov. Tilden with his
reform record. He was, in his judg
ment, tiie man to insure victory, the
man who would inaugurate in the
federal government such a reform as
had characterized the administration
of the State government of New York.
Wblteley of Delaware nominated
Bayard of Delaware.
Col. Williams of Indiana nominated
Hendricks of Indiana, which was re
ceived with prolonged cheers, He
made a vigorous speech in favor of

Ewing of Ohio nominated Allen.
