TARIFF TALK OUT WEST.
Minnesota Now Claimed to Be a Doubtful
Stat-Growing Demand for a Reduction
in the Tariff.
Naw YoRx, July 31.-Congressman W.
L Scott had not recovered from his illness
enough to be present at the first meeting
of the Democratic Executive Committee
after its organization at the headquarters
on West Twenty-ninth street today. He
sent a substitute. The meeting was, of
course, secret. The session lasted several
hours, which were spent in discussing the
plans for the campaign. Chairman Brice
presided. Speaker Carlisle and Senator
Gorman were the two most prominent men
present. Speaker Carlisle and Senator
Kenna of West Virginia came on from
Washington to repres- nt the Congressional
Democratic Committee and to decide with
the National Executive Committee on the
campaien plans. Both of them were in
speaker Carlisle said that he was glad
there were no personalities in this cam
paign. "It's a- campaign of principles,"
he said. "The issue is clear and all we
have to do to win is to present the issues to
the people and have them understood. We
have a great issue and a great leader. We
are keeping apace with the times in states
manship. while the Republicans have not
advanced since 1861. 1 think the chances
of Democratic success have not been better
since the war."
REPORTS FROM THE STATES.
Senator Kenna said that West Virginia
will give Cleveland twice the majority it
gave him in 1884, and that the Republicans
never have a possibility of carrying the
State in aPresidential election, and Senator
Gorman said that Maryland would go Dem
ocratic, of course. The most interesting
of the campaign reports made to the com
mittee came from the committeemen from
- the Northwest. Michael Doran, of Min
nesota; O. M. Barnes, of Michigan; J. J.
Richardson, of Iowa, and Erskine M.
+ Phelps,.of Illinois, made favorable reports
of-the prospects in their States. Mr. Doran
said that the passage of the Mills bill by
the House of Representatives would gain
of votes for the Democrats in
n- ta if the Republican Senators pre
vented its becoming a law. The feeling in
Minnesota was strongly in favor of a re
duction of the tariff: On this issue the
Democrats had steadily been gaining until,
from being one of the strongest Republi
can States, Minnesota had become doubt
ful, and the last Republican candidate for
Governor barely pulled through, and at
present three of the five Congressmen are
Democrats, and Knute Nelson, one of the
two lepublicans, voted for the Mills bill.
Mr. Doran believes that Minnesota can be
carried on the tariff reform issue.
IT WILL HELP THE DEMOCRACY.
Reports from Iowa, Wisconsin. Michi
gan and Illinois say that the tariff reform
issue will result in Democratic gains, espe
cially in Iowa, where the making of Thur
ston and Estee, both railroad lawyers, the
temporary and permanent chairmen of the
Republican Convention has alienated the
-John C. New returned from Indiana,
where he has been making a survey of
politics, and had a conference with several
members of the Rpublican executive com
mittee. Mr. New was harrassed in his $rip
by frequent appeals for money. The com
mittee is not distributing any money at
present and it will be a waste of time for
patriots to demand any money
re-fal. Until then the committee will
-be distributing campaign literature. The
text book, which Edward R.
Is preparing in Washington,
wi be ready soon. The Purroy Demo
cratic Asaoiation has made a contract for
a 41,00 banner, which will be the finest in
the State. It will have the pictures of
Cleveland, Thurman and Hill. Hill, by
the way, has not yet been renominated.
THE JACKSON ELECTION.
An Impaisra Statement of the Facts of
WSuseGToN, August 3.-The minority
reotof the Senate committee on the
Jackson, Miss., election, where certain
UAited titates onelcial were charged with
-aiding in suppressing the coloreivote, was
'peetdtotheSenate today. It is signed
'baR the Democraticomembers of the com
mteand makes nearly 200 pages of
closely written manuscript. It disagrees
*-wit0he rprt of the majority, and finds
that the coored vote was not suppressed
byay organized action of the citizens, and
thtnone of the United States officials took
partmi any movement looking to that end,
oracted in any manner incompatible with
their duty as officers or citizens having the
good of the community at heart.
The report reviews at great length the
-troubles preceding the election. Thie kill
ing of Gambrell in the Prohibition cam
- pugand the mob which followed, and
-t.kligof Mitchell by a colored man
amed Whtsd.backed by others-these
things and the failure of Mayor McGill to
enforce the law through his colored police
4and aldermen, led to meetings of the whites,
irrespective of party, to nominate a ticket
exclusively of white men against McGill.
Thie .latter, seeing the situation, proposed
*by letter that an election by whites exclu
- vely bebheld, but this was rejected by the
sotter side, when they proposed a primary
electionby the whites to select candidates.
This proposition was rejected by McGill;
but, owing to the general excitement, and,
possibly, for the purpose of manufacturing
"politicaloutrage" material, the negroes de
termined not to vote, and did not appear at
the polls on election day.
The report insists that there was no
movement, and with one exception no
,at the meeting held in favor of
.supression of the colored vote, except
the proposition of McGill, the candidate of
the prywith which the negroes usually
voe-Testories of the cannon nsed at
the polls are denounced as untrue, and
growing out of the presence of cannon
used for powder firing atpolitical meetings.
The report finds nothin to warrant the
removal of the four ofcers, as recom
mended by the majority of the committee,
and says the Senators have exceeded their
authority in recommending such action, as
the power of Impeachment would be with
the House, not with the Senate or the Pre
ATTACKED BY A SHARK.
Captain Tappen Has a Battle withk a Man
B aster in the Lower Bay.
[ N. Y. star, Aug. 1.)
-While Captain Fred. Tappen, of the
ferry-boat South Brooklyn. and the Misses
Walcott, of Stapleton, were out sailing in a
enbhat yesterday afternoon in the lower
bay, they were startled by a big shark ap
pearing near the boat. The young ladies
screamed, and Captain Tappen had all he
.could do to kep the boat from being cap
ized. The shark followed in the wake of
the boat with its big jaws wide open, finally
gtig so close to the boat that Captain
Tapncould reach it with an oar.
he Captain remained cool, although his
companions continued screaming. With
all of his strength he battered the shark
over the head with the oar until the blood
from the man-ester made the water crim
son. The battle was very fierce. Finally
the shark sank from sight. Captain Tap
pen believes that he either killed the shark
outright or mortally wounded it. He says
that the man-eater looked to be about 12
feet In length. One of. the young ladies
in the boat fainted wLile Captain 'Tappen
was battling with the shark. After the
latter disappeared, the Captain at once put
into Stapleton, where the much-frightened
Misses Walcott were landed.

OUR "PROTECTED" WORKINCMEN.
Castle Garden Immigration Nuts for Repub
licans to Crack-A Cloud of Famished Po
litical Locusts after Banker Morton's Sub
stance-Bright Democratic Skies in the
NEW IotK, July 30.-The Congres
sional committee appointed to inquire into
tne conditions of immigration to this coun
try settle down to business here some days
since. Already developments of an extra
sensational character have come to light.
Passing mention has been made in these
letters of the demoralizing conditions which
surround the importation of pauper labor.
Witness after witness at this investigation
has explained to the committee how the
padrone agents throughout Italy inflame
the working people with gilded accounts
of prosperity over here, by these fairy
tales allure them from their work and
bring them here to teed upon the vitals of
honest American labor. These blood spec
ulators receive on an average $2.20 for
each poor devil whom they succeed in
landing at lae Garden. The tarill is
paid by the tr portation companies in the
shape of a 'commission."
But this is not the worst of it. Reputa
ble witnesses have testitied that it is a com
mon practice on the other side to form so
cieties for the express purpose of trans
porting convicts to this country. No less
a personage than the Regent of Bavaria is
shown to have been actively connected in
proceedings of this sort.
The committee, which seems to be in
dead earnest, will take testimony in this
city probably throughout the month of Au
gust, and then go to Boston. In the result
of their inquiries the Democratic managers
foresee a most powerful campaign docu
ment. It is pioposed that every citizen
workman in the close States shall have an
opportunity of seeing the results of this
system which cuts down his wages and re
duces his chances of employment by bring
ing into competition with him men who can
live in clover on wages which to him mean
starvation. Apart from this phase of the
question, its social aspect-the Anarchistic,
anti-soap end of it-will be made to appeal
powerfully to the public conscience.
PATRIOTS ON THE PILGRIMAGE.
Now is the melancholly season of the
year when the professional campaign
shouter gets in'iis fine work. The big
parades, jollitications and general blow
outs are yet a little in front of us, but the
shouter is expending his lungs in pleasura
ble anticipation of what the next few weeks
will bring forth. Since it has become gen
erally known that Boss Platt headed off
his National Committee by securing first
pull at the Morton "bar'l," the "boys"
have been looking as spruce and chipper as
you can imagine.
Rhinebeck, the splendid country seat of
the banker candidate, is the especial Mecca
to which those patriot pilgrims bend their
footsteps. Like the locusts of Egypt, for
two weeks past they have been pouring
down upon the vine-clad preserves of the
gentleman -who is understood to have un
limited "boodle" to dispense for the glory
of the party and the fatuous vanity of Levi.
The particularly devout are also taking
in Horkimer, the house of Warner Miller,
on their route. The first requirement for
your "practical politician" is the keen scent
for the aroma of the flesh-pots, and where
else on earth will you find so much "prac
tical politics" as here?
EEMBLE BOBS UP AGAIN.
One of the most singular and not the
least interesting evolution of this campaign
on the Republican side is the reappearance
of a gentleman who was a conspicuous
character in politics ten years ago, but sud
denly went into retirement from no fault
of his own. He is none other than the
celebrated apostle of "addition, division
and silence." William H. Kemble, whose
bosship of the Republican party in Penn
sylvania wound up with a sharp turn eight
years ago. Newspaper readers will have
little difficulty in recalling this interesting
bit of history-how Kemble and others
were convicted of bribing legislators in
connection with the bills reimbursing rail
road companies whose property was de
stroyed in the Pittsburg riots of '77. It
was Kemble who discovered Quay and
caused him to be appointed-Collector of
State when this misfortune befell him. It
was Quay, true to his instinctss, who, by
virtue of his position in the Board of Par
dons, stood between Kemble and the peni
tentiary when every other resource failed
him. Kemble, though an enormously rich
man and still president of one of the lead
ing banks of Philadelphia, is to this day
debarred by his conviction from exercising
any of the functions of citizenship. It is
doubtful if he will succeed in his ambition
to have his disabilities removed in time to
vote for Harrison and Morton, but word
comes from the Quaker City that he is the
power behind Quay's throne at Republican
headquarters, and is easily the master spirit
of the campaign. The amount of his per
sonal contribution to the cause of 'pure
politics" is said to be very large.
G001D SEWS PROM THE GOLDEN~ STATE.
Chairman Brice was looking as sleek and
chipper as a bridegroom when your cor
respondent dropped in to pick up any late
crumbs about the progress of the cam
paign. He is extremely hopeful of carry
ing the State of California, and judging
from the amount of mail matter which was
pointed out as coming from that State with
assurances of Democratic triumph, the
chairman's enthusiasm s' -ns to be well
founded. Mr. James MfTonahue, Vice
President of the Democratic State Commit
tee of California told your representative
that not in years has the Golden State
Democracy been in such excellent form.
He insists that California is as certain to go
Democratic as Virginia. Blaine's great
popularity on account of his especial cham
pionship of the California side of the Chi
nest question, Mr. Donahue says, caused
thousands of Democrats to swing into line
for him four years ago. This element of'
strength will not only be restored to the
Democracy this year, but the same reasons
which impelled Democrats to support the
Republican ticket will under precisely re
versed conditions transfer thousands of Re
publican votes from Harrison to Cleveiand.
ABOUT THE BOY PREAcHER.
The Harrison about whom there is most
talk here just now is not the gentleman
whose name heads the Reoublican national
ticket. Of an entirely different brood is
he. Not in many years has any evangelist
created such a stir in religious circles of
wicked Gotbam. He is known as "Harri
son, the boy preacher, and .he probably
was a boy at some period of his career,
contemporaneously, one would judge from
his appearance, with men about launching
into their fourth decade.
He has done all but work niiracles here
during the past three months as a revival
ist. Taking up one Methodist church atter
another (mostly in those parts of the city
where the working people live), he has led
the fight against his Satanic majesty with
a fervor that has borne fruit in thousands
of converts. Enormous .crowds have at
tended his meetings and repentant sinners
have almost fought their way to the anxious
"Three thousand" is the legend that
greets those entering the John street church,
which is at present the seat of war. The
figures signify the number of converts, and
*yet there is no visible ebbing of the tide.
John street is very near Wall, and the "boy
evangelist" took up his headquarters there
in order to carry the war into the dominion
of Mammon and figuratively overturn the
tables of the money changers. These
tough old sharks of the "Street"-man
eaters, every one of them-proved them
selves a trifle too wary and headed off the
danger of being ensnared by declining to
attend the revival meetings. Multitudes
thronged them, though, with no more se
>f the fight. It was from those chiefly
hat the "boy preacher" got his recruits.
Evangelist Harrison's methods and his
>owers differ from those of all the great
eaders of his guild. He lacks the per
tuasive eloquence of Moody and his
trength is not equal to the sledge-hammer
Miows of Sam Jones. The secrets of his
success are indomitable energy, wonderful
physical endurance and intense enthusiasm.
He will walk up and down the aisles of
his chtrch, during the progress of a meet
ing, working his arms like pump handles,
talking to this person and that, and ex
horting the congregation generally at a
two hundred-and-tifty-words-a-minute gait.
There is hardly the slightest pause between
words-each seeming to lap over its suc
cessor-and one has to listen intently in or
der to keep apace with the frequently
broken discourse. His voice is a rich bass,
he is tall and rather spare, and you seldom
see him without a short stubble of coarse
beard on his otherwise boyish features.
WHAT ARE THE SKELETONS?
Bridgeton Excited Over the Stone Quarry
Discoveries-Exhuming the Stone Bodies
of a Man and a Great Animal Which No
One Has Ever Read or Heard Of-The
State Geologist Investigating.
BRIDGETON, N. J., July 31.-The great
stone skeletons which are being exhumed
at the quarry near Ireland's mill are caus
ing a sensation in this section which has
not been equaled since the war. Each day
Smetling new is brought out, and the
town is in a lively state of commotion,
awaiting the latest developments. There
have been numerous body forms excavated
from the marl beds, a belt of which crosses
portions of this and Salem counties west of
Ireland's mill and running from northeast
to southwest, but this is the first time that
a stone formation has been found, and this
is at least eight miles from the marl vein,
and the village wiseacres are unable to ex
The skeletons are found imbedded in the
sand or iron" stone common to the grav
elly strata of South Jersey, which is used
for building foundations, and, although it
is partly formed of iron pyrites, it is com
monly known here as building stone.
When this stone is first dug out it is soft
and crumbly, but on exposure to the air it
MESUREMENTS OF THE SKELETONS.
The skeletons found were discovered
about ten feet beneath the surface of the
ground, and the animal lies upon its side
at an angle of several degrees, the back and
head being nearer to the surface than the
other parts of the body. The neck is in a
bent position, the head being still nearer
the top of the ground. The body of the
man was first found, occupying a space of
about six and. a half get, with its legs
doubled under. The hind quarters of the
animal, whatever it may be, were first dis
covered, and this portion was quite imper
fect. Careful excavation resulted in com
pletely exposing the form, which is of a
large size. The length of the body from
the breast to the extremity of the hind
quarters is 8 feet; from the breast to the
top of the head is 4 feet; from the top of
the head to the extremity of the hind quart
ers is 12 feet; the height from the hind foot
to the top of the back is 5 feet, while the
height of the foreparts is 6+ feet. The fore
foot, which has been excavated, is broken
off at the knee-joint and doubled up. The
hoofs are cloven. The head and nose are
nearly perfect. There are protuberances
where the eyes and ears were.
PHYSICIANS MAKE EXAMINATIONS.
The scene around the quarry today re
sembled a camp meeting. Hundreds of
people flocked there and the roads were
lined with wagons and carriages. Promi
nently interested in the skeletons are the
physicians of this city, some of whom have
left for Philadelphia to see some scientific
savants and have them come down and in
spect the "remains." The quarrymen
guard them day and night, and, with na
tive Jersey shrewdness, charge a nickel for
a peep at the wonderful stone monsters.
State Geologist George H. Cook sent his
assistant, Frank L. Mason, of New Bruns
wick, to examine it today. Professor Ma
son took accurate measurements of the
form, which looks like a huge beast carved
in solid stone, its outline and symmetry be
ing perfect. The head was further uncov
ercd today, exposing an erect horn about
thirteen inches in length, extending from
Three Men Try to Destroy New Jersey's
(Philadelphia Times, August 2.)
There was a sensational scene near
Bridgeton before daybreak yesterday morn
ing when three strange men tried to destroy
the Jersey _geological wonder. The men
were surprised by Amos Penn and Frank
Lovell, the discoverers of the "What-Is-It,"
and after an exchange of shots, they were
driven into the woods back of the Ireland's
mill road. Ever since the two humble
quarrymen struck the petrified man and
the strange animal while-prospecting in the
loam for stone, there has been the hottest
kind of envy and the pit has to be guarded
day and night.
The body of the man was found first,
and that night was left unguarded. At
daybreak the next morning the human
fossil was found broken into pieces. The
vandals had completely destroyed its scien
tific value. Late that day Penn and Lovell
struck the hoof of the wonderful animal,
which they soon revealed to the light.
While one slept the other discoverer kept
watch in the pit in which the animal lies.
Just after 8 o'clock yesterday morning
Lovell was taking a nap under a tree and
Penn was at Arnold's pond near by getting
a can of water when he saw three men
pushing their way through the thickets in
the woods. Penn dropped the can and
slipped toward the pit just as the first man
mounted the low fence that surrounds the
A BATTLE WITH YANDALs.
When Penn hailed him the man answered
with the shot of a revolver, the ball whiz
zing through the trees. Penn returned the
fire and the three men dashed back to the
woods. Lovell had heard the shots and he
sprang from theground and ran after Penn
as he rushed on the men. The strangers
dashed into the black shadows of the pines,
when one of them wheeled and again fired.
The bullet whistled between Penn and
Lovell, who rallied antd drove the murder
ous vandals further into the woot.s, where
they disappeared in the darkness.
Daybreak soon followed, and before
breakfast people -began to journey to Ire
land's mill to see the marvelous relic of a
prehistoric age. Some came on foot, but
most of the pilgrims rode to the pit. Peo
ple came from all parts of the suirounding
country in all kinds of vehicles, from a sur
rey to a country ice wagon, while a num
ber of Philadelphians traveled down to
Cumberland county to get a peep at the

istant State Geologist Nason told them the
price was too low. Yesterday they raised

While Quarryman Penn was delivering

Lecturer Penn refused to sell, they de
nounced it as a "fake." Wheu Penn found

indignant and started after the men, but
their carriage was well on the way to

THE OLDEST LIVINC DEMOCRAT. .
Patrick Collins, Aged 106, Hopes to Vote
for Cleveland and Thurman.
(N. Y. Star, Aug. " )
The oldest ,Jeffersonian Democrat of the
country has been discovered by a Star re
porter. Patrick Collins, of Brooklyn, ac
cording to his own statement, is now 106
years old, and, even at this advanced age,
is intelligent and active.
When Mr. Collins left his native county
of Monaghan, Ireland, many years ago,-he
came to this country as a railroad laborer.
For seven or eight years he kept to this
work, until for a- time his health gave way.
Nevertheless he persevered and succeeded
in keeping in comfortable circumstances a
family of three daughters and two sons. -
A short time ago Mr. Collins was knocked
down and run over by an express wagon
in Myrtle avenue. His youngest son,
Patrick, and his wife cared for the old
gentleman as best they could for a time,
but finally decided that he would be much
better off for a time with the Little Sisters
of the Poor at D:Kalb and Bushwick
TTirough the courtesy of the sister in
charge the Star reporter was allowed an
interview with Mr. Collins. No one would
suspect, from his bearing, that the old man
carries the weight of 106 years upon his
shoulders. He is active in body, and his
mind is very clear. He suffers from deaf
ness, and that defect evidently annoys and
confuses him at times. Notwithstanding
this, however, Mr. Collins is always affa
ble, and certainly displayed great interest
in the affairs of the day.
"Yes," he said, "I can very distinctly
recall, old as I am, the times of Washing
ton, though I was not an American then,
snd I believe I revere and honor his mem
ory, but during more recent times, when I
was of an age to take a more active interest
in the hopes and aspirations of the country,
Jefferson was my favorite."
Mr. Collins is quite a pedestrian, and
even now takes a walk every few days.
He says that he will walk up to the polls
in November as briskly as any of them,
and deposit a vote for Cleveland and Thur
Sitting Bull in Camp.
S-r. PAU, Minn.., July 31.- The Pioneer
Press special from Standing Rock Agency,
dated the 30th, says: Sitting Bull returned
to the agency last night, and if his infin
ence has been used it has been in the direc
tion of some stronger opposition to the pro
posed treaty. In the private council
nearly all the Indians now at the agency
participated. Speeches were made by
John Grass, Long Dog, Mad Bear and
others, all against the measure. Trhe feel
ing was more intense than ever, and not
only was taken which was unanimous
against signing ei:her paper-the red or
black-but the most solemn oath known to
the Sioux was taken. .Each arose and
swore by the Great Spirit that lhe would
never sign the papers. Running Antelope,
who has always been friendly to the whites,
is outspokenly opposed to the measure
Sitting Bull and Rain-in-the-Face would
not even sit in the council. A council will
be held tomorrow.
