Rat and Work.
Fresno, Ang. 23. —More than usual
activity wat manifested -in tbe labor
world today. A number of prominent
business men met to take immediate
steps toward feeding'the hungry men.
Mr. Parsons, who has been in charge
of the free labor bureau, ssid that the
vineyardlste will not begin picking for
some days and tbe men are absolutely
hungry, without money and without
tnem had not had a square meal for a
week, was pretty good evidence that thS
men were law abiding.
In a short time $100 was raised and a
committee appointed to go to the city
trustees and tell them to provide 100
shovels at ones and three or four over
seers for the men. Then another com
mittee was appointed to proceed at once
to rent or buy a large stove and boilers,
dishes and cooking utensils and set it
np at the free labor bureau in a room
furnished free of rent; then to buy beef,
cabbage, potatoes, onions and bread
enough to make 75 gallons oi rich soup
and take it down to the free labor
Uhe same committee furnished tables
and benches, so that tbe men could eat.
All of this was accomplished within an
hoar after the meeting adjourned.
Fire wat eeon raging in the stove, and
from the ranks of the laboring men a
carps of cooks was obtained, and they
were told to go into the kitchen and
make enough soup to fill every man.
They went to work, and soOn several
large boilers were bubbling with soup.
The'throng of hungry men on tbe out
side understood what was going on, and
viewed it with most lively satisfaction.
Many of them had not tasted food since
the soup dinner of yesterday, and tome
not since before that.
About tbe same time the wagons
loaded with shovels appeared, and it
was plain that eating and working were
going hand in hand.
The citizens are going to furnish soup
mealt, tbe city trustees furnish shoveia
and overseers, and all men who get
tickets for meals will be required to
olean alleys and streets, working four
houra a day ior three tickets.

By the Associated Preai.
Dks Moinbs, Aug. 23.—Henry Voll
mer of Davenport, in taking tbe chair
aa temporary presiding officer of tbe
Democratic etate convention, which as
sembled here today, said:
"While an army of discontented un
employed ewarms over the land, there
stalks up and down the highways in
their midst the Republican Pharisee
with the assurance of inbred hypocrisy,
shaking his finger at ub and our party ai
the authors of this widespread misery,
It is bigh time we repudiate thia fou
slander and stamp the life ont of this
crawling serpent—Republican decep
tion. We live, it is true, under a Demo
cratic administration, both etate and
national; but in both the state and
nation wearecnraed by Republican lawe.
Let ua not forget nor permit the people
to forget that we still have tbe
bleaeed McKinley bill, that latest but
most developed off-shoot of the poison
ous plant, protection. Let ue not forget
nor permit congress to forget tbat tbe
unanswerable thesis of Bound political
economy ia that our industries can never
get ou a healthy natural baaia until this
weed ia destroyed root and branch.
"Panics are the necessary outgrowth
and never failing accompaniment of this
artificial system which stimulates
growth abnormally in certain directions
while it preventa extension in others
and finally compels tbe pampered favor
ites to shake their own slime in ever
recurring spasms over production.
"Let ua not forget especially that that
cowardly makeshift, denounced by tbe
national platform laat year, tbe Bber
mcn bill, and discredited now by ita own
author, still stands upon the statute
books. Liko Esau, John Sherman cold
his birthright for a mesa of pottage
when he loaned hia name to thia uo-
threw to the winds thegreateat financial
reputation of the age in a laat ineffect
ual attempt to oapture votes ior the
Republican ticket by saving Harriaon
from tbe unpleasantness of vetoing the
bill for the free coinage of silver. His
name will go down to posterity linked
with the law, upheld by none, con
demned by all, the great and sufficient
cause of our present financial diatress.
"Our party la even held reaponaible
for the condition of the treasury of the
United States, yet four yeara ago it went
out of power leaving a surplus of reve
nues to an amount roundly stated at
$100,000,000 in the coffers of the national
treasury; but when Secretary Oarliele,
barely five months ago, eaat an eagle
eye into the strong box at Washington,
he found tbeiein onjy tbe marks where
"Calico Charley" had been scraping at
the bottom of the bin. Both the Mc-
Kinley and Sherman bills have got to
go, and the people will sustain ua in the
"In tbe campaign before ua state
issues only can be settled; but in the
etate as in the nation we find that the
will of the pneple repeatedly expreaaed

ingly beheld the triumphant election
and re-election of our grand old man,
Horaele Boies, aa governor of lowa, we
are still blessed with a act of blue laws

the darf ages, rather than the broad
minded liberalism of these latter daya of
the nineteenth century. The indecent

ago, will soon gain iior lowa the name

The renomination of Boies ie certain.
Governor Boies said this morning his
letter, declining to run a third time, was
sincere, but he was willing to subordi
nate his wishes to tbe wishes of the
Democratic party. The committee on
resolutions is conservative. After the
committees had been announced the
convention adjourned to 2 p.m.
Dks Moines, Aug. 23. —Governor Boiea

At this point tbe report of tbe com
mittee on platform was read and adopt

the administration of Cleveland. The
present Snancial stringency is laid at tbe

Adjournment was taken after speeches
by the nominees.
Before the adjournment of the conven
tion John P. Irish, who has just re
turned from Washington, made a vigor
ous speech in lavor of the repeal of the
Sherman law. "It is the duty of every

London, Aug. 23.—1n addressing a
meeting of the Primrose league, in Rye,
last evening, Sir Richard Webster, M.P.,
attorney-general under tbe last Salisbury
administration and British counsel in
the Bering sea arbitration, said that he
had been accused by tbe radicals of neg

constituents for a fee incidental to hie
duties before the Paris tribunal. "I am

accusations. The truth ia that although
I considered myself honored by the ap
pointment, I should have done better
pecuniarily bad I remained at home."
Sir Richard eaid also tbat tbe success of

General Barnea Tells Him a Few Tilings
Abont tbe Proposed Midwinter
Fair—Tha Fall Text of
San Francisco, Aug. 28. — Several
days ago trie reception committee of the
California midwinter fair issued invita
tions to all prominent officials of the
city, including those of all tbe ebnrches,
to attend tbe park ceremonies tomorrow,
and among tbe latter addressed was
Rev. E. B. Stewart, who replied to the
invitation as follows:
"To the Executive Committee of tho California
, Midwinter luuirnutional Exj osltlom:
-•ObaH riuts;~ Yrnrv Tarnation" to be
present at the inauguration of the mid
winter international exposition oh next'
Thursday, August 21, 1893, is at hand.
I desire to express my sense of the honor
conveyed by the kind request. But ac
one who entered an emphatic protest
against the attendance upon the world's
fair at Chicago because of the violation
both of national and of divine laws,
duty is clearly setting before me the ne
cessity of avoiding even co much com
plicity in this enterprise until the as
surance is bad that ite gates shall be
closed on the Sabbath. Much assurance
I do not have at present, and therefore
must beg leave to decline, with regret,
the invitation co courteously given.
"Very sincerely, E. B. Stewart."
General Barnee replied to the letter ac
"Key. E. B. Stewart, Seaond United Presbyte
rian church, city:
"Dear Sir : Yours of August 22d is at
band. In common with all other cler

San Francisco, you were invited to be
present nt the inauguration of an enter
prise whose importance to the etate, to
general education and to the highest ex
pression of Christianity—charity to the
poor, and labor for the laborless— can
not at this time be exaggerated. We re
gret that as a teacher of people yon
withheld your sanction and presence on
such occasion. The celebration will,
nevertheless, take place. It will be
opened with prayer and finished with a
benediction implored of that divine pow
er wbose aid in our work we seek. We
hope He will be present if you are not,
and we believe he will. With thie as
surance of our faith, believe me, dear
sir, yours truly,

Tbe cause of Pfeffer was sustained by
Senator Hill, who broke away from the
leadership of German and Voorheee,
