WATERTOWX. X. Y, Sept. IS. Hon.
Roswell P. Flower, Democratic nominee
for governor, arrived here at 8:35 o'clock
last night, accompanied by Daniel G.
Griffin, state committeeman; his nephew,
Fred Flower, of New York, and S. L.
George, of this city. Eight thousand citi
zens turned out to welcome Mr. Flower
hjre. He was met at the railroad station
by a brass band, and was escorted to his
carriage. The crowd unhitched the
horses, and some of the leading business
men of the city drew the carriage to Mr.
Flower's residence, where ex-Congress-fiian
Lansing, of this city, welcomed him
in a short congratulatory speech, iu which
he said that the demonstration was not a
partisan affair, but was one in which all
of Mr. Flower's old neighbors joined, irre
spective of politics.
A Speech to His Neighbors.
Mr. Flower spoke as follows: "With a
heart full of gratitude, I thank you for
this friendly demonstration, recognizing
the fact that you do not greet me as allies
in the coniiug political battle, which
rightly must divide our people, but as my
neighbors and old time friends, bound to
gether by ties which will never sever by
ties of interest, of sympathy, of dutj, and,
I hope may add, by bonds of mutual re
gard. The nomination to the office of
governor has come to me from my party
unsolicited. I am not insensible to the
high honor proposed by the suffrage of
our poople to be conferred upou me of
presiding over the destiny of this state,
nor unmindful of the responsibility of
A Eulogy on New York.
"For this is the greatest state in the
Union. Nowhere else cu earth have so
many inhabitants in so short a period of
time been gathered together over so small
a territory as iu the state of New York,
and only fourteen nations of the world
have more inhabitants than this common
wealth. In amount and variety of pro
duction she ranks first among the states
of the Union, as well as for the number of
persons employed iu various pursuits. To
preside over such a state, to be able to
contribute anything valuable to the pros
perity of such a people might well kindle
the pride of any American citizen and rill
up the measure of his ambition. I owe
much to the people of Jefferson county,
where I was bora and spent my early
An Honor to the Section.
'While my residence for the past
twenty years has been in the city of New
York, my summer home has been with
you. This honor conferred upon me is
not alone a personal one. It is an honor
to this northern section of the state. Not
since the days of Silas Wright, in 1S44,
has agubernatoral candidate been selected
by either party from this section, and
never before has the choice fallen on a Jef
feison county boy. As .one of her sons, I
hope I can win her laurels. It will partly
repay the debt of gratitude I owe her, for
as the arrows of political hate have been
aimed at me in the pnst, surrounded as I
have been by the armor of your esteem,
they have fallen at my feet.
Shook Hands with the People.
"Your presence here to night reassures
me for the future. Fidelity and zeal in
the discharge of duty, and an earnest de
sire to advance the welfare of our com
monwealth, must lie the only pledge I can
offer you for your preference and the con
fidence sought to be reposed in me.
Should I be elected governor, and I believe
I shall be, I shall endeavor faithfully to
serve all the people of this great state,
seeking aid from Him who doeth all
After the speech Mr. Flower shook
hands with the people for fifteen minutes,
and was then driven to the Union clnb,
where a number of leading citizens of
both parties gave him a reception.
JONES HE BOLTS THE TICKET.
New Torks Lieutenant Governor Believes
Things in a Bail Way.
BixghamtoS, N. Y., Sept. 18. Lieuten
ant Governor Jones yesterday furnished .
the following for the press: "Being re
quested by the press to announce my in
tentions relating to the nominations of
the Saratoga convention I will say thai my
political action has always been controlled
by my sense of duty as a citizen, never
recognizing conflicting party obligations.

have the whole people been sacrificed, but
the existence of the Democratic party I
jeopardized; for behind the nominations!
and in absolute control of the party, are i
men whose every sentiment of patriotism
is subject either to their personal ambition
or their selfish greed, and the administra
tion of public h if airs is shaped to perpet
uate their rule.
Hound to Oppose His Party.
"So complete is the power of these men
and so dictatorial have t hey become that
members of the party are but serfs so far
as political action is concerned. Continued
subservience must but make the condition
too degrading to be quietly borne by
American citizens. There is but one way
to dislodge the usurpers. The temporary
defeat of the party will be harmless com
pared with the effects of their control.
For the welfare of the state, and in the
interest of the Democratic party, to me
my duty appears clear, which is to oppose
the election of the nominee of the Sara
toga convention to such extent as may be
within my power, and In such a manner
as may seem best to accomplished that
purpose." Mr. Jones declines to specify
ust what action he will take in the
Republicans Charged with Dodginic.
CoLUMBrs, O., Sept. 18. Governor
Campbell opened the Democratic cam
paign yesterday at Sidney, O., to a fair
iced assemblage. He said that one of the
most encouraging features of the cam
paign was the apprehension exhibited by
Republicans in regard to the tariff. The
Republicans, by the nomination of Mc
Kinley, had made the tariff the issue, aud
now they were dodging it. Referring to
Senator Sherman's prediction ot the re
sult of the free coinage, the governor said
that be was a false prophet, and cited in
stances in which what the senator pre
dicted had not come about.
GitAJiD IsLAXD, Neb., Sept. 11 The
Democratic state convention met hem
yesterday, F. P. Ireland presiding. The
following ticket was nominated: For
Judge supreme court, Judge J. H. Broady,
of Beatrice; for regents of the university,
F. A. Brogan and S. F. Henrlcker. The
feature of the platform is the indorse
ment of free coinage of silver, and the de
nunciation of the law allowing lenders to
stipulate for payment in gold. The su
preme court of the state was charged wi.h
"indecent haste" iu unseating Governor
Governor Boles at Onawa.
Onawa, la., Sept. 18. Governor Boies
talked to the farmers of Monona county
county here yesterday afternoon and was
accorded a most hearty greeting. The
meeting was held iu the large skating

discussion of the tariff bill from a Demo
cratic standpoint and also had something
to say about the pro tit of corn raising in

SAD SUICIDE OF A LITTLE GIRL.
She Takrtt Pniitnn Because Her Mother
Portland, Me., Sept. 18 Little Annie
Haley, 14 years old, is dying from a self
administered dose of paris green. Her
mother is addicted to the use of liquor,
aud some months ago was brought before
the court for intoxication.. She was sen
tence to sixty days in jail, but her sen
tenced was suspeuded ou her promise to
abstain from alcoholic beverages. She
kept her vow until Wednesday when, in
some way, she obtained enough liquor to
make her drunk, and she was arrested
and taken to the police station to awuit
transfer to the jail to serve out her origi
nal sentence. Just before her removal to
the county prison her husband, James
Haley, rushed breathlessly into the sta
tion crying out "For God's sake let my
wife come home home; Annie is dying."
Took Her Vow Too Late.
Briefly told he told the story, and a mo
ment later the mother was released from
her cell and, entering a hack, was driven
to her home. Annie had been to school,
but at recess learned of her mother's ar
rest. She obtaiued her dismissal, walked
to the nearest drug store and bought a
box of parts green. She went home to
her chamber, swallowed the poison and
was found unconscious by her father
when he returned home. Three physi
cians worked over her for hours. She re
covered consciousness when her mother
arrived, and their meeting was pathetic.
At the bedside of her dying child the
mother took a vow to abstain from intox
icants. The physicinns have no hope that
they can save the girl's life.
