oeratle National Committee Has Some

Latent Returns from the Latter Nearly
Trenton, N. J., Sept. 15. The state
Democratic convention met here yester
day, the principal Question before it being
whether Wert or another man should be
the nominee for governor. There were
S.O0O spectators present, all, nearly, for
Werts, and the convention itself was fully
attended by delegates. Chairman McDer-
znott, of the state committee, called the
convention to order. He said he would
refrain from making anything like a
speech because he was a partisan of one of
the gubernatorial candidates. His an
nouncement that the statt- committee had
decided the Passaic contest for seats in fa
vor of the Gourley delegates was cheered
by the Werts men.
Had a Little Diversion.
As soon as the temporary chairman,
Bergen, had made a brief speech a motion
was made that Passaic county be passed
in the roll call until the committee on
credentials passed upon the question of
the contest in that county. Prosecutor
Gourley opposed the motion and the mem
bers of both factions raised such a bedlam
that the chairman's voice could not be
beard. He threatened to call upon the
police to remove the noisy partisans and
to clear the galleries. This had the effect
of restoring order. The chairman decided
the motion carried and the appointing of
the standing committees was proceeded
1 Synopsis of the Platform.
Then a recess was taken, and npon reas
sembling Edward F. McDonald was chosen
permanent presiding officer, and the reso
lutions committee then reported. The
platform indorses the Chicago platform
and upholds and indorses the Democratic
administration of New Jersey. The state
government is declared the most econom
ical in the Union, and the pledge is re
newed that no state tax shall be imposed
daring the Democratic regime. As an
answer to the charges made against the
present government all the acts claimed to
be for the public benefit passed by the
Deniocrt tic legislature last winter are
cited in the platform.
Werts Got the Three Cheers.
Chairman McDonald made a ringing
speech. In the midst of his remarks,
while pledging the loyalty of Hudson
county, whatever the outcome of the con
vention was, a small piping voice iu the
galleries exclaimed: "Three cheers for
Werts." Thereupon pandemonium broke
loose. Hats and canes were waved and
thousands cheered and shouted for Werts.
Preliminary business was rapidly trans
acted and nominations reached, the fol
lowing being named for governor:
George T. Werts, E. P. Young, R. A. Don
nelly, A..W. Cutler. Xobody was in it but
Werts. He got 710 votes on the first bal
lot, and it was made unanimous.
Halle Named for Governor, Ranks and
Long for Electors-at-Larce.
Boston, Sept. 15. The Republican state
convention assembled in Tremont Temple
yesterday for the purpose of nominating
candidates for governor and lieutenant
governor and the remaining offices on the
state ticket; also to nominate two presi
dential electors-at-large, and to confirm
the nomination of the electors selected by
the several congressional districts. The
permanent chairman, Hon. Charles H.
Allen, was received with applause. In
speaking on the tariff Allen said: "The
Democratic aarty has, with all the
solemnity and deliberation of which it is
capable, taken its position on the plat
form of free trade pure and simple," then,
quoting from that particular plank
adopted by the Chicago convention, he
said: "On that platform it will not have
the company of the American people,"
I'latform Points Noted.
The platform adopted indorses the na
tional platform adopted at Minneapolis
and the caudidates nominated there; con
gratulates citizens that under the wise
and patriotic administration of Benjamin
Harrison they have reached a national
prosperity never equalled in the history of
the United States; believes that a con
tinuance of that administration would in
sure a continuance of that prosperity; op
poses the inflation of the currency either
by the use of inconvertible paper money
or the free coinage of silver; believes in the
sanctity of individual franchise; that the
hand that holds a legal ballot, whether
that band be black or white, is entitled to
all the protection which the law of the na
tion or state can afford.
Tko Ticket Nominated.
Hon. Win. H. Haile, of Springfield, was

urer and receiver general.
HARRITY FEELS ENCOURAGED.
B, Finds Comfort la the Returns fro as
Recent State Elections.
New York. Sept liTbe Democratic
rational committee, has issued the follow
ing over ti.e signatures of ilarrity and
Dickinson, and addre-ss.-d to the people of
United State.-: "The Democratic national
committee congratulates the country ou
the result of the recent state elections in
Maine, Vermont and Arkansas. Iu Ar
kansas, the combined opposition, after so
many extravagant claims,' fell short by
over 30,CO0 votes, on the Democracy alone.
This has brought dismay to the combina
tion iu the Soutli and to its manipulators
in the north.
Remarks on Maine mid Vermont.
In Maine aud Vermont the contest was
conducted distinctly ou national issues.
The Republican managers appealed for
rotes in those states ou the ground that
the 'size of the plurality would exert a
great moral influence ou the campaign in
other states,' aud that the poll would 'be
practically our vote for the presidency.'
Similar appeals summoned to their aid all
the poteut resources of their national or
ganization with its exhaustless treasury
and its splendid equipment of orators of
Conclusions from the Results.
"With every favoring force at their com
mand, except public opinion; wit h no or
ganizations opposed save those made up
within the states by a minority party
which has been out of power for a genera
tion, and which was unaided from with
out, the campaign of our adversaries for a
triumphant test vote in these states, so
carefully planned and so thoroughly and
forcefully executed, has ended in conspicu
ous disaster. Our friends everywhere are
eutitled to take fresh courage from these
results. They mean that the strong ten
dency of the public sentiment is with the
Democracy, and that the people of the
country are prepared to enforce, rather
than reverse, the verdict which they ren
dered in isyo."

The Victim Swung Off from a Telegraph
Pole Hoping His Son! Would Go t
Hell Story ot the Crime for Which He
Paid the Penalty A Young Girl'
Heroic and Successful Struggle with a
LAISNKD, Kas., Sept. 15. "I hope my
soul will go to hell." With those terrible
words upon his lips Hugh Henry, alias
John Brock, was swung from the arm of a
telegraph pole at 1 o'clock yesterday
morning by a mob for tbe attempted rape of
of Miss Mabel Welch.' formerly of Denver.
Henry, who is a colored man, had been
gambling and drinking and lost all bis
money Monday night, and he said he went
out to look for a pi ace to sleep. Accord
Ing to his story, the window opening into
Miss Welch's room was open and he
climbed in. This was about 3:3J o'clock
Tuesday morning when the streets were
Had a Knife In His Teeth.
The first intimation that Mabel Welch
had of the villain's presence was when she
was awakened by feeliug a cold band on
her leg. She thought it was a snake, and
in horror sought to brush it from her jer
son. What was her terror when shej dis
covered that a negro stood beside her bed.
She kept her presence of mind, however,
and grasping the negro about the head she
discovered that he held a knife in his
teeth, aud she made a desperate effort to
get it in her possession. Iu the attempt
her hands were cut iu a frightful mauuer,
and she was soon compelled to give up the
Rrave and Successful Fight.
With the knife in an uplifted hand and
the other hand at her throat ber assailant
declared if she made an outcry be would
kill her. Miss Welch fought desperately
and prevented the negro from accomplisn
ing his purpose. Henry, however, re
mained in the room until dawn and made
his escape through the window. As soon
as the affair became known a posse of de
termined men started in pursuit. About
noon Tuesday Henry was found asleep
near the old Lawreuce bridge, tweive
miles west of Larned.
Confessed and Then Protested.
He was awakened by bis pursuers, and
upon being confronted with his crime and
the evidence confessed his guilt. He was
brought back to learned ami given into
custody of Sheriff Thorpe, who placed him
iu jail. At midnight fifty tueu marched
to the jail and battered down the door.
The door of his cell was forced open, and
then commenced a series of blood-curdling
veils from the negro, who protested that
they were about to hang an innocent mau.
Grew Desperate at the Last.
As the mob moved to the scene of the
the rape he wailed and moaned and
heaped imprecations upon his execution
ers, but without avail. Finally, when he
saw there was no hope, he acknowledged
his guilt, defied his captors and said ha
hoped his son I would go to hell. A rope
had already been placed around his neck
with the other end swinging over a tele
graph pole, and as the negro utteredj the
blasphemous speech he was swung Up.
WAS TOUGH ON THE THIEF.

Didn't Know It.

dashed across the street and into the
ladies' room at break aeck speed. The bag
was not where he left it. Then Mr. Went

his loss. He looked iu the street end ex
amined the gutters, but the bag had gone.
Recovered by a Lucky Chance.
He started for the police station, aud as
he cleared the doer of the station he saw a
man behind the big o.tk door wrapping
something in .a newspaper. Suspicion
made the banker sharp, and he at once
dragged the mau from his hiding place,
and discovered that it was his sachel. Po
liceman Durgin was close a!, hand. Banker
Wentworth claimed the baggage as his,
and told what it contained to prove his
assertion. He opened it and showed the
securities. The thief almost fainted. He
