Hill and SUT.uioa on
By the Associated Press.
Albany, N. V., Oct. 15.—The joint
mags meeting held tonight by the Hill
and Cleveland factiona was a moet en
thusiastic jollification. Governor Flower
was pot down lor tbe main epeech,
speaking in eubatance as follows:
"Fkllow Democrats: This in a time
when Democrats should stand up and be
counted, aud if I do not miatake, the
feeling of the rank and file is tbat they
are in line for battle."
The governor warmly commended
Senator Hill as a statesman and Demo
crat, Continuing he said: ''This is a
death struggle with the party that gave
us the McKinley bill in 1890. Thoße
wbo inflicted our present evils upon ns
now a: k restoration to power when the
country is just getting over tbe drunken
debauch in which tbey left it. Our
country is getting over ite depreeeion,
and in anotber year we will be prosper
ous as a nation and on a basis that will
be enduring. Tbere is not a line in tbe
Bilver bill written in your interests, be
cause any law wbich tends to make tbe
currency of the country unstable ie not
in the interest of labor or capital, but to
the hurt of both.
•Wo have revised the tariff and there
is not a line in it which wilt reduce the
wagee of workingmen ona cent lower
than they were in 1892."
Hon. iiourke Gockran waa introduced
by Govornor Flower. Great applause,
lasting con.c time, followed the name
of the gentleman. Mr. Cockran eaid :
'Two yeara ago I bad the honor to
open the campaign which resulted in
the election of Grover Cleveland. To
night I atand ready to give an account
of the manner in which the adminietra
tion of Cleveland haa discharged its
stewardship. 1 believe that men oun
not be deoeived j that they can dhjier.i
between right and wrong, between n
system which ia for the good of the
common people and of tbat which de
"If tbe bad times which have over
taken us be the outcome ot 24 yeara of
Republican misrule, I believe the people
will be able to trace the evil to its
sourco. The Democratic party has been
bending for two years over the prostrate
form ol American industry. My friend
Reed will tell you otherwise, but will
people believe him or them? No; their
common sense telle them better.
"We are a nation with fields as fertilo
and mines as rich as tbey were 30 yearn
ago, yet our mills are stopped, our fac
tories closed. Why these hard times?
If they came not from God, they came
from man. Why, my friends, this
panic could not be caused by any legis
lation which could be enacted in oao or
two years. No, the legislation which
caused this was the outgrowth of 20 odd
years rule of the Republican party. The
commerce of tha nation is the com
merce of the individual. For the years
of its rulo the Republican party lias ad
vanced a Bystem of protection. This,
combined with a debauched cur
rency, ia the powerful 'actor which
bas brought us o;r closed
factories, unemployed thousands, and
our hard times. If any man can show
me bow protection protects the work
ingmou, I will be the greatest of protec
tionists. What we want is a supply
which will fill the demands which are
compatible with the economic prosper
ity of our government. The 80-oalled
protoction does not give us this. We
must have a free circulation of money.
You have noticed that whenever the
slightest uncertainty attaches itself to
tho currency of a country paralysis re
sults, and when the banks and manu
iHctoriss of this country were struggling
through the dark clond that hung over
them, the plundering Republicans
turned'thoir bucks to the treasury they

fall they will show a preference for per

principle—they will show that they
would rather knock a man down thaii

Congressman Cockran wbb loudly ap
plauded at every point, and especially
at tho mention of the names ot Cleve
land, Flower and Hill. The applause
was tumultuous when tbe speaker ap
pealed for religious toleration.

Washington, Oot. 15.—Governor Till
man oi South Carolina was at the treas
ury department today and had an inter
view with Commissioner Miller of the
internal revenue bureau, in regard to a
question on which there seemß to be a
conflict betweon the federal and state
authorities. Under the dispensary laws
of the state of South Carolina, distilled
spirits in the custody of the United
States iv bonded warehouses, belonging
to parties who have violated the provi
sion of the dispensary law, by selling
them within the state, are declared to
be a nuisance, and on conviction the
etate officers are author ed to seize and
coniiscute the liquor, lv all such cases
the governor proposes to tender the tax
due the government and seize the
spirits, contending that the federal
authorities have no right to iutorlere iv
Commissioner Miller took issue with
tbe governor and cited several decisions
of the courts, among them one by the
supreme court of the United Slates,
wherein it was held that goods in
bonded warehouses were no: subject to
any prooess or proceeding issuing from a
state court, and that so long as the gov
ernment retained control of the goods

No final decision, however, was
reached, and it is probable that iv def

man the question will be referred to the
attorney general for an opinion.

such headway tbnt nothing conld he

A SUTOCKINO ACCIDENT.
Two V iut'k Men Horribly Mutilated by
MoKiiM.MNE Hill, Cal., Oct. 15.—One
of tbe most shocking accidents that ever
happened in tbis vicinity oocurred be
tween 11 and 12 o'clock this morning,
with possibly fatal results. Tiro young
men named James and Gsorge Kipp,
aged 19 and 17 years respectively, were
horribly mutilated by the explosion of a
box of giant powder caps. Tbey wonf
for a walk to the Moser mine, near this
place, and on tbeir return on a new road
recently constructed to the mine diacov
ered near tbe roadside a box of giant
powder caps, a piece oi fuae and about
half a dozen giant powder cartridges.
Just how tho accident occurred is no'
yet known. However, a man named
11 ally Gold saw two men coming down
the road, locked arm iv arm, staggering
from one side of the road to the othei
and uttering fearful shrieks. lie
at first thought them to bs
drunken men, but on tbeir nearer
approach discovered tbe horrible condi
tion of the boys. He seated them be
neath a tree and hurried to town for
assistance. A conveyance immediately
started out and brought them in, and
Dr. Blaisdell of this town and Dr. Sim
mons of San Andreas were summoned.
The condition of the young men was
terrible in the extreme. The left hand
of James was torn to shreds, necessitat
ing amputation at the wrist, his eye
sight destroyed, bia head, face and the
upper part of hia body rilled witb frag
