The organization of democratic socie
ties borrowing the name and form from
the movement of nearly one hundred
years ago that carried Thomas Jefferson
Into the presidency was one of the most
interesting features of the lvt campaign
The first general assembly of the demos
cratic societies of Pennsylvania will be
held in Philadelphia October IS, and we
hope for the very best results from it in
the way to stimulating interest and pro
tnoting organization among democrats.
The Hon. Chauncey F. Black, president
of the Pennsylvania societies, has done a
great work for the democratic parly in
pushing the formation of these societies.
The republican party of the present day
does not possess all the ability that dis
tinguished the federal party of the last
century, but it possesses all the victs of
that party, and it has so far exaggerated
and perverted that fluoal system with
which Alexander Hamilton's name is
associated that Ilitmilton would to-day be
denounced as a British frec-j' ,S by
every republican paper in tVXuritry.
The republicans never tire of boasting
that their protective scheme is founded
upon the famous report of Hamilton on
manufactures, and yet the republican
papers do not dare print that report, and
if they did print it without Hamilton's
name, their readers would suppose it was
prepared by Colonel Morrison or Mr.
Mills. We look to Chauncey F. Mack
and the democratic societies of IVnnsyl
vania and the rest of the United States to
do a great work in resisting the efforts of
the republican party to concentrate all
political power in Washington, to aggran
tlize tlie executive and to use the taxing
power for private purposes.

"Capt. T. C. Sweeny, one of the owners of
the line, w ho assumed ooniiiisnd on tbe death
of Capt. Itlnnks, says the explosion was not
due to a too high pressure of steam, lie just
had occasion to exutiiine tu gauge, and is
positive there was not a pressure of more
than 1V pounds. The boat hud a moderate
cargi.. She was in mid-stream, just below
the Inuding at Arbroth, and had just whis

Ins; at Which the Matter Was Die
eassed the Disgruntle! Delegates Hold
Aloof and Refuse to Go on the Excur
sionThe Visitors at West Poiut.
Washington Citt, Oct 4. If rumor is
CO believed the All-America congress does
not start off in such an atmosphere of peace
and harmony as represented In the dis
patches of Wednesday night Tbe row as
it is claimed was all about the election of
Mr. Blaine to preside over the deliberations
of the congress. When it became apparent
Tuesday that the secretary of state would
be chosen to preside the Central and South
American delegates went into secret session,
and the proposition to make Mr. Blaine
president of the congress was denounced as
unfair, illegal and unprecedented.
What the Chilians Think.
"We do not deny the right of tho Ameri
can delegates to elect the president, "said one
of the delegates from Chili. There are
precedents for the election of a president by
the members from the country which issued
the invitations to the congress and in which
the congre is held, but tiere are no prece
dents for the election as president of a man
who is not a member of the c nigress. The
law un ler wb'ch the congress was called
provides that the U.Htsl Stnt.'S shall be rep
resentel by te i d-1 -gttes, t b) appointed
by the preel lent by and with the advice an I
consent of t ie sen it . These ton delegates
have I teen so appoint I, and Mr. Blnine is
not on j of them."
Argent Ine View It Likewise.
The Chilian delegate ws followed by other
delegates iu the same strain. Rotpie Lwnz
Pen a and Manuel Quintana, delegates from
the Argentine Republic, and Minister Varas
and Jose Alfonso, of Chili, led the onslaught
Against Blaine, in which they had the sup
port and sympathy of many of ttie other
delegates. It was contended that to elect an
outsider president would be to invite the
ridicule of the nations of the earth, and that,
moreover, Mr. Blaine would not lie able to
preside continuously, and the congress would
thus lie left without a responsible head. A
proposition was made that the delegates join
in a resolution indorsing Mr. Blaine for hon
orary president, leaving the inference that
they would not be satisfied with bis selection
A Ttitter Dlarnsalon,
Much feeling was shown in the debate,
and at one time there was danger that the
anti-Blaine element would refuse to take
part in the deliberations of the congress.
Tbe discussion became so bitter that the ses
sion continued all the afternoon, and at 6
o'clock adjourned for dinner, to meet again
at 8. It was near midnight before the con
ference finally adjourned, and the Blaine
matter mas under consideration during
nearly all of the session. On adjournment
several of the delegates declare I they would
not attend the meeting of tbe congress next
day at which Mr. Biaine was to lie elected
Chill and Argentine Stand Aloof.
Tbe delegate from Chili and tbe Argen
tine Republic kept their worU They
attended neither the meeting of the
congress nor the president's recep
tion and luncheon, and have not yet
joined the excursion which the m-mib?rs of
the congress are making through the coun
try. Whether they will at any time partici
pate in tbe sessions of the congress with Mr.
Blaine sitting as president remains to be
seen. Eff.irts were made to induce the dele
gates from Chili and the Argentine Repub
lic to forego their obj ctions, but they were
deaf to all entreaties.
It is said that Mr. Blaine knew nothing of
opposition on the part of the South
Americans when he took the chair, else be
might not have been willing to be forced

Great Railway Trip.
Washington City, Oct 4. One of the
most luxurious trains that ever left this city
pulled out of the Teusylvania railway sta

delegates to the All-America congress on
their excursion through the United States
that is, all of them but one, Hon. J. K Hen
derson, who was about a minute too late and
bad to follow on a later train. He was very
much surprised when he found the train had
gone, believing, as be . said, that it would
not tirt promptly. He was evidently
very much mortified at having bn left
behiniL The morning was a flue one
a per'ect autumn day. There was no
formal leave-taking between government of
ficials and tbe delegates. Many friends of
the delegates accompanied them to the sta
tion, and for bait an hour liefore the train
started the scene was an aniinite I one.
Tbe first place the train stopped was at
West Point, where the excursio-.iist attended
the ceremonies of unveiling the portraits of
Gens. Grant, Sherman, and Sheridan, pre
sented to the military academy by George
W. Chi Ids. At night a banquet was giver
in their honor.

department yesterday to see the secretary in
relation to tbe proposed removal of Ucrouiiuc
and his band to North Carolina. The secre
tary was not in. Liter Governor Fowle
called at the executive mansiim. He told
the president be was going to withdraw bis
suggestiou to send tbe Indians to Vermont,
and propiwe to ae id tbem to Boston, where
they could be cired for by Mr. Sullivan.
Tbe president told him that the government
would not send tbe Indians anywhere that
their presence would be objected to.

Jambkroo, Fike County, W. Va., Oct 4.
There has been another outbreak of tbe old
Hatfield-McCoy feud and at least three more
lives have been sacrificed in tbe bloody ven
detta which has now lasted over seven years.
Tbe plaoe where the killing occurred is
nearly sixty miles from a rai road station or
telegraph office, and eighty-five miles from
here. Tbe shooting occurred at a marriage
at the farmhouse of Peter McCoy. His
daughter was to be made the wife of John
Hand, a relative of the Hntft -ld gan r, and
members of both factions ha 1 sworn to pre
vent the union, declaring that it would be
an outrage to the feelings of all who were
connected with tbe family.
Killed the Hride, Groom and Clergyman.
Tbey we'e unable to stop the preparations
for tho wedding, however, as neither Peter
McCoy nor Han 1 had ever even been con
nected with the dispub of the factions, and
refused to recognize the leader. Tuesday
night tbe bridal party assembled in McCoy's
house, and just as young Hand and Miss Mc
Coy stood before the minister to lie joined in
wedlock, a volley was poured through a
window, which killed but i of them, ami fa
tally wounded the clergyman, whoe name
is unknown. Report s.iy tii it the farmers
and mountaineers of thd lu nlil y are hunt
in? for the murderers, but up to yesterday
morning no tr.n-cof them hsid been found.

FIRE BUGS AT HELENA, MONT.
The New State Celebrates Its Dignity by
Kelnrnlng to Moh Law Methods.
Helena, Mont, Oct 4 -The figures
"a !-"," the warning of vigilantes to bard
cases, were chalked on street c li ners and
printed iu the evening )apers yesterday.
This call for a return to the inethodsnf early
days, was occasioned by the discovery of four
fires in as many houes yesterday morning
in the heart of the business section. All the
fires were pot out Ufore serious damage was
d ne, and in each case it was found that
rags bad been sat tirated w ith oil and fired.
Tbe incendiaries are evidently the same gang
who have Iwen in northwestern towns dur
ing the summer, and to whom the big fire in
Butte last Sunday is attribute.!. The city
was patrolled by special police last night,
and if a fire Lug is caught bis chances for

Got a New Theory Now.
CHK-AOn, Oct S It is tbe current report
here that the olice h;ive a new theory as to
the murder of Mr. Snell, the millionaire,
for whose taking off William B Tascott has
been held entirely rsK.nsil;, The story is
that certain persons desire 1 to gain posses
sion of certain (apers in Mr. Snell' safe;
that they hired two men to go anil rob the
safe, Tascott, presumably, being one of
them; that the contpirators knew that Snell
would fight and they planned it so that a
third person one of themselves should go
along and help, getting possession of the pa
pers and escaping, while Snell killet the two
burglars and they killel him, thus destroy
ing all the evidence both to the conspiracy
and tho existence of the papers. The theory
is a pretty one and the police, so the report
says, are working it up.
Serves the Urate Right.
Baltimore, MA, Oct 4. John Eiswn
berger, 35 years of age, a man of slender
build, was convicted yesterday of brutal
wife heating. Judge I'helps sentenced him
to fifteen lashes and thirty days in jail. Tbe
sentence took the prisoner's breath, for it is
most unusual to infl ct punishment by tbe
lash, but his treatment of a frail wife was
more than inhuman.

The readers of the Daily Aruus will
be pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able cure in all its stages, and that
ia catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the
only positive cure now -known to tbe
medical fraternity. Catarrh beinft a
constitutional disease, requires a consti
tutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is taken internally, acting directly upon
the blood and mucus surfaces of the sys
tem, thereby destroying the foundation
of the disease, and giving the patient
strength, by building up the constitution
and assisting nature in doing its work.

curative powers, that they offer one hun
