Madame Chambers left for the East Sept. 20th.
We expect her to return and open the Depart
ment again Oct. 11th. She will remain away
long enough to have every advantage for visiting
the late openings that occur the first part of Oc

is a loss and inconvenience to us on account of
so many ladies wishing work done now, to have
Madame Chambers make this late visit to the
fashion centres instead of going earlier and re
turning early, but we believe in doing things right
or not doing them at all, and those ladies that
wait for her return will secure the benefits.

South 141, Central S'J, Black Hills 19.
After the appointment of committees the
convention adjourned to 8 p. in. At the
evening session the committee on creden
tials reported and the temporary organiza
tion was made permanent. The com
mittee on resolutions endorse President
Cleveland, approve of efforts to wrest
from railroads unearned land grants; pro
nounce the existing protective tariff unjust,
burdensome and disci iminating against
agriculture; favor the submission to a vote
ot the people of the whole territory the
question of a division of the territory on
the seventh standard parallel; favor" the
submission of all important question?, in
cluding prohibition to the people.
Parks, of Dickey county, offered a sub
stitute for section seven, declaring for the
admission of the territory as a whole,
which, after a long debate was voted
down and the original resolution adopted
amid great enthusiasm.
After nominating speeches an informal
ballot for delegates resulted as follows: 31.

"WoncEssTEii, ilas., Sept. 30, The
Democratic Stale convention was called to
order at 11:30 this mornig, Hon. P. A. Col
lins in the chair. The chairman and secre
tary of the convention were selected as
temporarj- ofiiccs. The following resolu
tions were submitted to the convention for
consideration: Reaffirming the principle",
of the national Democratic platform of
1884, aud endorsing President Cleveland's
We recognize and applaud the steadfast
adherence of the president to his ante elec
tion promises and the pledges made to the.
people in 1884, in regard to civil service re
form. The partisan abuses of Republican
rule have been duly corrected; the quality
and tone of the civil service throughout the
country has been vastly improved; the
power of appointment and removal has
been used with moderation and restraint,
manifestly inspired by a sincere desire to
dispense public patronage and till the
ofiiccs which belong to the people in
a new and better spirit, based
on the tolercnt regard for honest difference
ol opinion-this is mstrikingand wholesome
contrast to the vindictive ostracism of hi-;
opponents practiced for nearly a quaitcr of
a century by the Republican administra
tions. We demand a judicious reform of
the tariff all the necder? protection to cap
ilal and labor engaged in the various in
dustries can be assured under the revised
scale of duties which will afford all the
revenues required by the government, and
relieve the great body of people of
the heavy weight of taxation honest
money must be maintained the gold ami
silver coinage of the constitution and the
circulating paper medium based on both
coins and easily convertible into either,
must be defended against all assaults; such
a policy is essential to financial stability
and mercantile products of the country.
The citizens of Massachusetts have an
abiding interest in the ocean fisheries
whichfor generations have been cat rial on
by her vessels and fishermen, while taxa
tion, direct and indirect, is im
posed mid a revenue drawn
by the town, state and federal
governments from the hardy fishermen
who fish under her flag, we shall oppose
all ellorts to admit rivals under a foreign
ting to sell their fish free of duty and taxes
in the markets of the L'uitcd States.
Wc welcome the new era of organized
labor; remembering the hist and earnest
s'rugglc made by the Democrats of Mas
sachusetts for a repeal of the tax on the
poor man's ballot wc have the right to
congratulate the workingmen that at last
the Republican party has surrendered on
this issue, and that an amendment abolish
ing the poll lax qualification is on its way
to the people.
The platform then demands the abolish
ing of convict labor aud certain reforms in
state affairs and closes with an expression
of regret over the losses of great men who
havedied in the last year.
Jas. Grinuel then took the platform and
nominated Jno. P. Andrews, of Boston.
for governor. The motion was put and
earned amid cheers and music by bands.
A motion to take an informal ballott was
made and Chas. E. Endicott, of Boston,
nominated Wm. E. Russell as candidate '
for goiernor, but Mr. ltussell declined.
The motion for an informal ballot wa- j
lost and 3lr. Andrews was nominated by j
almost a unanimous vote. A committee ,
was appointed to nominate the remaining
officers on the state ticket, after which an i
adjournment was taken till 2:20.
The balance of the state ticket, with the
exception of lieutenant covernor, will lie as '
Secretary of state, John R. Thavcr of t

The platform presented was adopted
w uhout debate.
Frank iv. Foster was nominated for ik-u-tenant
governor. Mr. Aspinwall declined to
serve as a candidate for treasurer and Lewis
Warner of Northampton was substituted.
The convention then adjourned.

for governor on the Prohibition ticket, met
in due form, and after careful iavesUgaUon

on its face appears to reflect upon the
christian character and integrity of our
candidate, is purely personal, and

State of Kansas, i
EX'ECUTIVE DEPARTMENT, r
Topeka, Sept. 30. )
Whereas, Reliable information has
reached the live stock sanitary commission
of the state of Kansas that contagious
plcuro-pneumonia of cattle has made its
appearance in a large number of animals
within the states of Illinois and Ohio -tad
the Dominion of Canada, and
Whereas, The cattle interests of the state
of Kansas are greatly endangered by the
prevalence of this plague at points situated
on the principal avenues of the live stock
traffic of the country, thereby making it
possible for the disease to become wide
Whereas, An outbreak of this disease
within the state of Kansas would seriously
depreciate the value of our cattle, and close
the markets of the world against our beef;
now, therefore, I, John A. Martin, gov
ernor of Kansas, do hereby, by virtue of
the authority vested in me "by law, and in
accordance with the recommendation of
the live stock sanitary commission, declare
and establish a quarantine against the intro
duction into this state of all animals of the
bovine species comiug from the state of
Ohio and Illinois and from
the ilominion of Canada, unless all
such cattle arc quarantined at the
point of entry for a period of ninety di:ys,
and retained there until they shall receive
a certificate of health signed by tho state
In testimony wheieof, I have hereunto
subscribed my iunv, and caused to bo af
fixed the great seal of the state. Done at
the city of Topeka, on the day and year

The Cattle Plague.
Kankakee, 111., Sept. 39. Twenty-five
of the one hundred bulls sent trom the
Chicago distiller." before the quarantine to
Tripplet'3 ranch near St. Mary, Kankakee
county, have died presumably of pleuro
pneumonia. The herd of bulls dying off, presumably
from plcuro-pneumonia, arc on the Tripplet
ranch recently purchased by Miller and
Poguc. the bulls were shinned to the
ranch recently from Rice's distillery'
Chicago, sonic say because they were not
doing well and others that they -were sent
to oe reduced to steers, i nc symptoms are
the same a3 described in Chicago.
The ranch is on the state line aud joining
the largest stock farm of Indiana, neigh
boring with the large ranches of Cooley
and Gregory, of Chicago; Lemuel Mill:, of
Kankakee aud J. W. Goff, of Cincinnati.
No definite details are now obtainable, .'is

Gen. Miles' annual rojwrt embodying the
story of the surrender of Geroninio has
been received by the actiug secretary of
war. Gen. Miles, it is said, reports that he
accepted the surrender of the-savnirQ chief
tain agreeing .is among the conditions that
he should not lie surrendered to the civil
authorities in Arizona for trial and that he
sh uld be t:iken away from that vidnitv
Tlic rqwrt shows'that Gcrooiino and his
companions were not captured b it sur
rendered conditionally, lie acknowledges
that he promised the hosrUcs that they
should not be turned over to the civil au
thorities of Arizona and that their live
should lc spared bv removing them from
the country immediately ThU accounts
for Gen. Miles' failure to obey the instnir
tions of the war department, to ctuitino the
hotiles at the nearest pa-t.
The Star says: The fact that Gen Mil -s
accepted a conditional surrender when the
positive instruction of the government was
that nothing but capture or unconditional
surrender should determine Ukj Apnchr
campaign mi-os i: very grave question f r
the consideration of the president and v.
rctnry of war. What the result will be
can duly be conjectured, but unless there
are sonic very extenuating circumstance-
not apparent on the outside, a reprimand U
the least that could Ik? exacted.
The report show's that the hosttles uecr
iK-'fore had Iwn driven to such a ttagp of
desperation and that they could not have
stood cut against the troops much longer,
but, nevertheless, the war department
would undoubtedly preferred the Indiin
war to last another year rather than tic
hostile should surrender on those terms
It is said that Gen. Miles' campaign did not
practically differ from that of Gen. Crook,
and that the latter could have secured tin
hostiles on similar conditions t those at
cepted by Gen. Miles, last January, when
Geroninio expressed a " w illing
nCss to surrender, but escaped
when ho found tint he could secure no as
surance of safety from Gen. Crook.
Gen Miles' reort is very long and in
tcrtsting. He devoted a greater jKirtion 1 1
an account of the pursuit of Indians sinn
