H Rochester, X. Y., Sept. 10. Eight hun

when the state Republican convention was
called to order at

were offered by
Rev. Dr. Stebbins,.
and a quartette

sett was seen in the hall, and a great cheer
rose that boded little luck to the other
candidates for the head of the ticket. It
was five minutes before order could be ob
tained so that the roll could liecalled. Gen
eral Knapp made a brief speech, in which
his reference to the "matchless man from
Maine" was received with cheers, and then
named W. V. Goodrich as temporary
chairman. Colonel Elliott F. Shepard es
corted Mr. Goodrich to the chair.
Temporary Chairman's Speech.
Mr. Goodrich said that the record of the
Republican party from its birth was
something to be proud of, while the con
trary was true of the Democracy. At the
last election, however, it again obtained a
majority of the lower house of con
gress by a campaign of colossal
lying, by a successful misrepre
sentation of political questions, by a
conspiracy among the traders to secure
higher prices in fear of higher duties, by
frightening the timid voter, by deceiving
the credulous voter, by securing the venal
voter and by the apathy of the Republican
voters (that most insidious and danger
ous ally of the enemy). He eulogized the
administration of General Harrison and
indorsed the "tyranny" of Speaker Reed.
Of the Tariff and Finances.
He reviewed the tariff question at great
length, and spoke in high praise of the
McKinley bill. Upon the subject of sil
ver he said: "The Republican party al
ways rises to its highest flight aud surest
victory when a general principle under
lies a conflict. That conflict is here. Let
us take our stand right. An honest dol
lar for an honest debt. We applaud the
courageous utterances of President Harii
aon in his recent speech at Albany. This
is to be a campaign of education and not
of deception. The Republican party never
fears investigation of its principles or its
Hill Posed as a Colossus.
The speaker had the followiug whack at
Governor Hill: "We sorrowfully behold
the governor of this great state as he
stands like a modern colossus, one foot in
the executive chamber at Albany and the
other in the senate chamber at Washington,
his hands grasping the lever of the Demo
cratic machine, which he controls by till
ing public offices with his subservient
tools, his eyes greedily fixed on the presi
dential chair, in which he will never sit;
his highest flight of oratory, 'I am a Dem
ocrat;' pandering to the liquor interest,
playing with the question of honest
money, cheating the laboring man by de
feating for years the Australian ballot
system on which their protection de
pends, until he could emasculate it with a
paster giving the people mere husks in
stead of the corn of the actual system."
FASSETT TAKES THE FIRST PLACE.
Rapid Work at the Cloning Session The
Ticket and Plalforni.
During Goodrich's speech references to
Harrison and Blaine were about equally
cheered, and Tom Reed received hearty
applause. The committees were appoint
ed, and recess was taken to 4 p. m. Upon
reassembling the organization committee
reported J. XI. Yarn urn, of New York, for
permanent president, and upon this prop
osition being unanimously indorsed by
the convention that gentleman took his
seat and made an address in which he
praised the acts of the last congress, and
heartily approved all the Republican
measures. The resolutions committee not
being ready to report, nominations were
Resnlt of the Voting.
The following were named for governor:
J. Sloat Fassett, who was declared by his
nominator a defender of the Republican
tariff policy and a believer in reciprocity
as adopted by his party; Hon. Philip
Becker, of Erie county; General Stewart
L. Woodford, who, his nominator said,
was elected in 1S70 but counted out, as
testified to by "Boss" Tweed a few months
liefore his death; General James B. Carr,
aim ueuerai aciswortn. A letter was
read from Hon. Andrew White withdraw
ing his name. It took but one ballot to
settle the contest. Fassett had a heavy
majority and the nomination was made
unanimous amid a scene of great enthusi
asm. The rest of the ticket is as follows:
Lieutenant governor, John W. Vrooman
(by acclamation); secretary of state, ex
Senator E. F. O'Connor; comptroller,
Arthur C. Wade, of Chautauqua; treas
urer, Ira M. Hedges, of Rockland; attor
ney general, W. A. Sutherland, of Mon
roe; state engineer, Yerplanck Colvin, of
The Declaration of Principles.
The platform adopted is a standard
Republican declaration. The legislation
of last congress is approved as the embod
iment of the principles of the national
convention of 188S; President Harrison's
administration is commended as wise,
patriotic, and pure, and a compliment is
given to each of the cabinet, especially to
Secretary Tracy for his work in the nary
department; there is a pension plank and
a labor plank, the latter endorsing all
laws enacted for the benefit of the work
ingman; the right of every man in the na
tion to vote and have his vote counted is
reasserted, as is the determination of the
Republican party to see that every voter
has that right and is permitted to exer
Liquor, the Jews, and the World's Fair.
On the liquor traffic the platform says:
"Issue has been joined by Republican leg-
islatui-es and the Democratic governor on
the limitation and restriction of the liquor
traffic, and we reiterate our declaration
for comprehensive and efficient legislation
for gi ing local option by counties, towns
and cities, and restricting by taxation in
such localities as do not by option exclude
the traffic." It denounces the cruelties
practiced by Russia upon the Jews and
commends the intervention by our kov-
ernment in all proper ways in behalf of
equal rights. Early action for a proper
repress ntation of J.ew York at the
World s fair is urged upon the next
The Financial Plank.
The financial plank is as follows: "The
act of July 14, 1890, provides for the pur
chase of the silver product of American
mints and issuing of the new treasury
notes, protected by a reserve of 100 cents
worth or silver for every dollar issued.
We commend this policy of maintaining
gold at d silver at a parity, the treasury
rates p.iid for silver to be kept at par with
gold. The voice of Xew York is emphatic
against any degradation of the currency,
and demands with President Harrison
that ev-?ry dollar issued by the govern
ment, whether paper or coin, shall be as
uuu as every oiuer uouar.
At 7 p. m. the convention adjourned

Jackson, Miss , Sept. 10. The non-partisan
Prohibitionists of the state met here
yesterday. The state is asked to with
draw f r m all partnership with the sa
loon as the only right and safe policy. The
following resolution was adopted: "We
reaffirm the declaration made by the first
state convention, held July 20, 1SS1, and
frequently repeated, that the cause of pro
hibition should not be entangled with a
party politic. Without disturbing the
party affiliations of any citizen, we ask
his support of the great reform, which
should lie sacredly enthroned above the
contests for mere place and power."

NOTHING THE MATTER WITH JAY.
Mr Gould Healthy Enough To Do a Slx-Day-Go-as-Please.
Chicago, Sept. 10. Whenever the Xew
York newspaper men have nothing else
to report of a startling nature, there is
Jay Gould's health, always a subject of
interest. So yesterday morning it was
telegraphel west that Mr. Gould was
simply a walking shadow and a physical
wreck. John M. Thurston is gtneral
solicitor fir the Union Pacific railway,
and he said yesterday: "That story is
nonsensical, and I know it because I am
personally aware of Mr. Gould's condi
tion. I traveled with him for three weeks,
and when 1 left his nai tv at Salt. T.u
weeks ago lie was in splendid health.
The L ttle Wizard as a Tramp.
"In fact, I was surprised to see the
amount of exercise Mr. Gould took. He
climbed up the hills, went fishing almost
daily, and long tramps seemed not to have
latigued b m at all. It maybe that Mr.
Gould is about to give over to his son the
management of his properties, but then
that is quite natural, and doesn't at all in
dicate that be is a sick man. A part of
our trip was from Shoshone to Shoshone
Falls. We had to walk up a steep incline
a mile long liefore we got to the falls, and
Mr. Gould was the most spry of any in
me pany it mating me ascent."

IN NEED OF AN ABSOLUTE BEST,
Failing Health Makes Labor Dangerous
and the Distinguished Jurist Puts a
Period to Forty Years of Hard Work
Two Places Now Vacant in the C om
mission and Hotta Difficult to Fill
Points from the Judge's Long and Use.
Axs Arbor, Mich., Sept. 10. Judge
1 nomas M. Cooley, chairman of the inter
state commerce commission, has banded
in his resignation at Washington. When
seen by a reporter he stated that his reason
is his failing health. Although not by
any means in a dangerous condition, the
several relapses which he has suffered dur
ing the past two years have rendered such
a course necessary. As to his future
plans, they are as yet not determined
upon. He will take a much needed rest
with his family in this city. It is his in
tention to totally abstain from all study
or work whatever. If his health permits,
during the coming winter he may deliver
a few lectures in the university upon the
interstate commerce law.
A Republican Must Succeed Him.
A Washington dispatch says that the
resignation of Judge Cooley is regarded
here as a great loss to the public, for he
was the only man on the commission ap
pointed for his practical andexpert knowl
edge of railroad law. Under the terms of
the act creating the commission no more
than three of its five members can lielong
to the same political party. Judge Cooley
was appointed as a Republican, therefore
the preside!. t must appoint a Republican
to succeed him. and a Democrat to succeed
the late Commissioner Bragg. William
R. Morrison is now the ouly original
member of the commission, and his two
colleagues are Republicans.
Two Difficult Places to Fill.
There are as yet no means of knowing
who will be appointed to the two vacan
cies. Almost every prominent politician
at present out of a job is "spoken of," but
it will be a very difficult matter for the
president to select two men who possess
the qualifications necessary to make them
fitting successors to Cooley and Bragg.
William R. Morrison's term expires in
January next, but at that time there will
be three Republicans and two Democrats
on the board, which will make it reasona
bly sure that Colonel Morrison will suc
One of the Original Appointees.
Judge Cooley was one of President
Cleveland"s original appointees to the
interstate commission. He is nearly 08
years old. A Xew Yorker by birth, he" re
moved early to Michigan and began the
practice of law at Adrian. In ISiy he was
appointed a professor in the newly or
ganized law department of the Michigan
university, and from that date he has
lived continuously in Aim Arbor. From
lSt4 to ISS'j he sat on the Michigan su
preme bench, and his decisions are a part
of the best literp.ture of the profession.

also his books on "Taxations," on "Torts"
and his edition of Blackstone's Commen
A Case of Life or Death.
Judge Cooley's health has been very pre
carious for the past two years, and it was
absolutely necessary for him to give up
hard work if he wished to live. For forty
or fifty years he has worked incessantly
about fifteen hours a day, allowing him
self no relaxation whatever. In Washing
ton he has been absolutely unknown to so
ciety, and the only opporl unity afforded
tee public of catching a glimpse of him
was when he sat on the.bench of the inter
state commerce commission. The death
last year of his wife, the companion of
over forty years, greatly shocked aud en-
leeoied nim, and he has frequently been
forced to the retirement of his home.

Thirsty Maine Citizens Invent a Novel
BANGOR, Me., Sept. 10. An entirely
new drink has been invented by the thirsty
citizens of Lewiston, who are just now
sorely pressed for liquid refreshments on
account of the determined efforts of the
authorities to enforce the prohibitory law.
The new drink is prepared by pouring a
bottle or two of Jamaica ginger into a
pail of cider, and it is so popular that al
cohol "split" has disappeared from the
market, while "uno" beer is passed by
with contempt. Although the Lewiston
topers get gloriously full on "cider
punch," as it is called, the stuff cannot 1
