Assault on Republican Measures and
Proceeding. Both National and Mate
Bay State Republicans Name Allen
for Governor Action of the Auti-Sab-Treasury
Saratoga, N. Y., Sept. 17. Only one
ballot wss necessary at the Democratic
convention to Kettle the quest ioa whether
the "slate" as proposed by the leaders, so
far as it concerLed the gubernatorial can
didate, f-tiould stand, and it stood SV4 iO
43, The rest of the slate went through ly
acclamation. The preliminary work of
the convention whs soon dispatched, and
all the contests settled in favor of the Hill
men. The platform committee had its
work done, and as soon as tSie organiza
tion was complete and ot!ier preliminary
business out of the way it was read. 1; is
mostly devoted to state matters, but be
gins by realliriniiiB the national platforms
of 1SS4 and 1SS, which it claims were in
dorsed by the people at both those elec
tions, and especially by the election of
leelaration on National Issues.
The declaration on national issues is
contained in the second paragraph which
is as follow: "We are against the coinage
of any dollar which is not of the intrinsic
value of every other dollar of the United
States. We therefore denounce the new
Sherman silver law, under which one
tenth of our gold stock has been exported
and all our silver output is dammed up
at home, as a false pretense but artful
hindrance of return to free bi-nietallic
coinage and is tending only to produce a
change from one kind of monometallism
to another. We therefore unite with the
friends of honest money everywhere in
stigmatizing the Sherman progressive
silver basis law as no solution of the gold
and silver question and as a fit appendix
to the subsidy and bounty swindles, the
KcKinley worse-than-war tariff, the
Blaine reciprocity humbug, the squan
dered surplus, the advancing deficit, the
defective census, the falsified representa
tion and the revolutionary procedures of
the billion dollar congress all justly con
demned by the people's great uprising last
Xovember a verdict which renewed next
year will empower Democratic statesmen
to guide the people's councils and to exe
cute the people's will."
As to ItolMfStir Policy.
The platform then rehearses the laws
which were passed by the last legislature
in redemption of Democratic pledges, aud
denounces tbe Republican state senate for
the failure of other laws. The grievance
of New York in not getting the World's
fair is taken up, aud Fnssett is charged
with responsibility therefor, his reason for
acting against New York being that a
Democratic body instead of a Republican
one would have control of the fair if it
went to New York. The Kepublicau or
ganization in the state is charged with
conspiring with the federal census bureau
to cheat the state out of a large number of
inhabitants. The platform declares fur a
number of state reforms, and on the liq
uor question reasserts the proposition that
"we are opposed to all sumptuary laws."
A plank sympathizes with the persecuted
Uuesiau Jews, and calls on the govern
ment to use its influence to have the per
secutions abated, and ends with a highly
eulogistic endorsement of Governor Hilt
A Kind Word for the Negro.
The platform was adopted with enthusi
astic cheers nud the following, offered by
Mr. Cantor, of New York, was also passed:
"That this convention views with gratifi
cation the growing friendly feeling to
ward the Democratic party of our colored
fellow citizens in this state, and they are
welcomed to our ranks, with the assur-t-nce
that within our party discrimination
on account of nice or color is discouuten
anced." Nomination of Candidate.
Nominations wire then declared in or
der, and Thomas F. (jilroy nominated
Roswell 1. Flower, which whs seconded
by Colonel Fellows and Burke Cockran.
Alfred C. C'hapin, of Brooklyn, was nom
inated by Thomas DeWitt, und seconded
by General Catliu. The vote was nearly
all one way, as stated in the first para
graph of this dispatch, and as soon as it
was announced the chairman of the Kings
county delegation (Cbapin's men) got the
floor and moved that the nomination lie
made unanimous. A stirring and enthu
siastic scene followed, and the motion was
adopted with a roar. William F. Shee
han was nominated for lieutenant gov
ernor by acclamation, aud the ticket com
pleted in the same manner as follows: For
treasurer, Elliot F. Danforth; for secre
tary of j-tate, Frank Rice; for auditor gen
eral, Simon Itoseudale; for comptroller,
Frank Campbell: for engineer and sur
veyor, Martin Sehnck.
f loe of the Convention.
Culls were then made for Flower and
that gentleman etime forward with a
graceful speech in which he thanked the
convention and said that he would put in
his best work from new on to make the
canvass a success. If elected he would
try to be an executive of which the state
would proud and an honor to the paity
which elected him. Sheehan was also
called for and spoke briefly and eloquent
ly fpr a few minutes. Anew state cen
tral committee was then named aud the
convention adjourned without day,
J Pennsylvania People's Party.
Gl:tlN6ll0, Pa., Sept. 17. Two hun
dred delegates met here yesterday to or
ganize the l'eople's party in this state.
An attempt was made to capture the con
vention by the Democrats, but failed. No
ticket wes nominated, but the convention
adopted a platform which recommends
the abolition of national banks at banks
of issue aud the substitution of green
backs for national bank notes; condemns
alien ownership of land; demands free and
unlimited silver coinage, a graduated in
come tax, government control, and, if
necessary, ownership of railroads, and a
direct vote of the people for president,
vice president, and United States senators.
It also recommends that the government
loan money at 2 per cent, on real estate
and non-perishable products.
rT. Loi IS, Sept. 17. In the Farmers'
Alliance convention yesterday, resolutions

BAY STATE REPUBLICANS.

Bos-TOS, Sept. 17. Henry Cabot Lodge
presided over the Republican state con
vention, which met at Tremont Temple
yesterday. There were 1.245 out of l,2t
delegates present. In assuming the chair
Mr. Lodge made an extended speech, in
w hich he traversed the whole range of na
tional and state issues. He particularly
o iled attention to the freesilver tendency
of the Democratic party, andsaid: "A vote

Massachusetts prefers the Democratic pary

means free trade, not amendments to the
tariff of JS'.K), not free raw materials for
the lienetit of New England, but naked
ThtMte "Amiable Young Men."
"The amiable young men whom they
eltcted to congress last fall talk as if they
co ild coutrol t heir party on this matter.
Ttey make the same mistake as the fly on
thu wheel. They do not make the wheel
go round. The wheel goes round and
carries them with it through dust and
mud alike. They will all vote sooner or
later for a free-silver speaker; and they
c.Hii give no more powerful aid to the free
silver cause than by so doing, for it is
the speaker who makes committees, who
lea Is the party and who shapes legisla
tion." He closed with a vigorous def.-nse
of the work of the last congress.
Candidates and Platform.
A fter completing the organization can
didates for governor were nominated, ex
Governor Long naming W. W. Crapo, and

Bltow.vsviLLE. Tex., Sept. 17. Catarino
G. Garcia, the Mexican renegade who has
been running a newspaper in Duval coun
ty, Tex., in which he viciously attacked
the government of Mexico, crossed the
Rio Graude with 4O0 well-armed and
mounted men Tuesday night, his avowed
object being to start a revolution. He ex
pects a strong reiuforcement from the
other side. The movement creates con
siderable excitement iu Mntamoras, and
the officials are using the wires freely.
Diaz I Hi Pet Aversion.
Garcia is a uoted character upon both
sides of the Rio Grande. He has money,
education, daring, and a violent disposi
tion. He has lieeu a leader of the turbu
lent class of Mt xkans, and has a special
hatred for President Diaz. In fifty under
sized uvolutious, municipal riots, and
clerical fights he has been the central fig
ure upon the Mexican list of fugitivts
from justice. He has been in Texas
about six months, and officers have ex
pected him to break out in some wild at
tempt tooverthrow the existing authority.
General A. S Stanley, commanding the
department of Texns, yesterday received a
telegram from Captain Randall, of the
United St itcs infantry, who commands
Ringgold at Rio Graude City, Tex., tell
ing of tae invasion.
A l-sperate Hand of Cutthroat.
The men are bouud for one of the larger
towus of the state of Tamaulipas, and ex
pect it to arise in rebellion at their com
ing. If successful they will seize the Gulf,
Monterey aud Tampico railway and es
tablish a bse of supplies somewhere on
the line. They are armed with Winches
ter rifles and army revolvers, and ride
good horses. Some of them are men of
high family, and all are devoted to the
Clerical party, which is in opposition to
President Dixz. Ic is as desperate a band
of cutthroats as ever crossed the river.
Likely To He Rounded Vp and Shot.
General Stanley has telegraphed Captain
Raudail to patrol the American bank of
the Rio Grande with all the troops at his
command aud the Mexican military au
thorities at Nuevo Laredo, which is head
quarters for the state of Nuevo Leon,
have lieen notified aud a detachment of
a tl Mexican cavalrymen have leeu sent
down the riv r and will attempt to inter
cept the band. General Stanley thinks
the gang wili be rounded up aud shot in
side of ten davs.
THE COWSUEGRA CATACLYSM.
What a C.eiHiarnie saw During the Storm
A City of the Iead.
MaIiRH). Sept. 17. A gendarme who es
caped gives a thrilling account of the
flood at Cousuegra. He says that the dis
aster was preceded by a terrific storm of
thunder and lightning. By order of the
mayor he and several comrades hurried to
the lower town. They found the water
already neck high, and with difficulty
saved thirty persons. Bat the peo
ple were vainly urged to aban
don their dwellings and went to
their beds as usual. Soon the storm began
ai;ain with iedoubled violence, aud the
river rose rapidly, carrying away every
thing with resistless fury. The terrifitd
people climbed to the roofs, shrieking for
the help it was now impossible to give.
One by one the houses collapsed, swal
lowed in the seething torrent. At day
break hundreds of men and beasts were
seen struggling in the water, carried along
so rapidly as soon to be out of sight.
Tumbled into Long Trenrhes.
A dispatch from Cousueura says that
the place presents the veritable aspect of a
city of the dead. Tne awful aud oppres
sive silence is broken by nothing except
the noise from the jUiu wheels of the
dead carts as -they rumble from house to
housi in search of corpses, which when
found are hurriedly trundied off for
burial in t he creat trenches which yawn
for their reception. There is no time now
for the weeping of relatives or mourn
ing of friends over the remains of depart
ed loved cnes. The dead menace the liv
ing therefore the dead must be hustled
under earth with the utmost dispatch in
order that the living may not soon be
come of their number.
(ihastly Kind in One House
In one building alone twenty-seven
corpses were fouud, a fact which may
serve to convey some idea of the grim
horror of this most tornble catastrophe to
the min is of the most indifferent. Al
most all the dead thus far recovered have
betn buried without identification. The
loss to property is roughly estimated at
not lessthau t-'..0.0C).
The Moineut-e Hay Palace.
MoMa-NCE, Els, Sej.r. 17. The annual
hay palace a'id autumn festival opened in
this city yesterday. The palace has been
doubled iu size since last year, and is a
much more imposing edifice from an ar
chitectural standpoint. There are over
100 entries iu grain and vegetable alone,
and as many more in flowers, fruits, and
paintings. The principal speech of the
day was delivered by Governor Fifer, who
took the stata of IllJnois for his subject.
Rct. Arney at the Races Again.
GRAND RAriDS, Mich., Sept. 17. Rev.
John W. Arney, of Saranac, whom the
Methodist conference raked over the coals
lor attending horse races, was an inter
ested spectator at the West Michigan
races yeBterday, and he seemed to thor
oughly enjoy the sport, too. He came
especially to see Nelson make a fast mile,
and be stayed in the grand stand until
the very last.

PAEIS, Sept. 17. In spite of the howls
A the "Teutophobists" "Lohengrin" was
given at the opera last night to an enor
mous crowd. The work was applauded to
the echo. Outside there was a howling
mob shouting "A Itaa- Wagner." When it
became too noisy, and the police tried to
clear the thoroughfare, the mob got ugly
aud cavalry had to chrrge it, driving it
way. - .

Paris, Sept. 17. The French . gavern

What is lacking is truth
If there were absolute truth
on the one hand and absolute
confidence on the other, it
wouldn't be necessary for the
makers of Dr. Sage's Catarrh

They say " If we can't
cure you (make it personal,
please,) of catarrh in the head,
in any form or stage, we'll pay
you S500 for your trouble in
making the trial."

Funny, isn't it, how some
people prefer sickness to
health when the remedy is
positive and the guarantee
Wise men don't put money
back of " fakes."
And " faking " doesn't pay.
