Guthrie, O. T., Sjpt. 3 Roy Hoffman,
clerk for the allotting agents of the Sac

noon. Ho saysthatthe country, including
the Iowa lands, is full of boomers. In
making the trip of sixty miles he left the
regularly traveled route frequently, in or
der to observe the country and ascertain
whether or not there were people hiding
in the bushes. Hoffman makes the state
ment that there is scarcely a quarter sec
tion of desirable land in either the bac
and Fox or the Iowa reservation that is
not occupied by a "sooner." The people
waiting on the border are not at all an
noyed at this, for they feel that the "soon

out, their right to locate homesteads will
bo contested by legitimate settlers.
Perkins, O. T., Sept. 2. SDecial.l
The big bridge across the Cimarron river,
just three-quarters of a mile south of
Perkins, was completed Tuesday morn
ing, and a regular old-fashioned barbecue
was given. About two thousand people
witnessed the finishing of the bridge.
There was a dance given on the bridge at
night by the young people of Perkins and
Theie are hundreds of schooners arriv
ing daily, proving that Perkins is the
only point where they can enter the uew

Tho town and vicinity are filled with peo
ple anxiously waiting for tho word "Go,"

Harrisburg, Pa.s Sept. 3. With Robert
E. AVright of Allent'own forauditor general
and A. L. Tilden of Erie for state treasurer
and a platform that will appeal to the
party generally, tho representatives at the
Democracy of Pennsylvania assembled in
contention today feel that they have ac
complished something worth exulting
over. The proceedings of the convention
werp characterized by the greatest har
moey. All signs of factiou were obliter
ated, and, so far as possible, anything that
woujld engender discord was carefully
eliiriinated, not only from the platform
but from the convention proceedings.
Cleveland's name aroused the most enthu
siam, but that of Governor Pattison evoked
a demonstration scarcely less hearty.
There was a pronounced sentiment in
favor of a constitutional convention pure
and simple, but a qualified endorsement
that declared for a revision of the funda
mental law limited to ballot reform was
gracefully accepted as a compromise. The
severe arraignment of the Republican of
ficials for dereliction in the discharge of
their important duties is causing consid
erable comment, but it is regarded as the
keynote of the campaign, and as the signal
for more of the same sort of hot shot.
HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 3. The Dem
ocratic state convention was called to
order at 10:30 o'clock this morning by
Cbairman'Kerr, of the state central com
mittee. The opera house was filled with a
representative gathering of the Democrats
of the state. The convention consisted of
46J delegates. H. Williams Bland of Read
ing was unanimously cuosen temporary
chairman. After a short and enthusiastic
speech by the temporary chairman, the
usual committees were appoimeu ana tne
convention took a recess until the after
Tho afternoon session of the convention
becan at 2 o'clock. The committee on per
manent organization reported in favor of
Hon. George W. Skinner of Fulton county
for permanent chairman. Air. Skinner
was conducted to the platform and deliv
ered a speech, after which the chairman of
the committee on resolutions was intro
duced, and the platform was read aud
unanimously adopted.
The platform endorses the principles of
the national platforms of T.834 and 1683; fa
vors an honest and economical adminis
tration of public affairf; a sound and
stable currency based on 'gold and silver,
coined and circulated in such proportion
as will keep them in parity: a reform and
revision of the tariff; libei.al but just pen
sion lawSj and all well considered legisla
tion tending to increase tjhe rewards and
lighten the burdens of Iatjor; arraigns and
condemns the Republican, party for having
elected men to state aud municipal offices
tiy whose neglect of duty, complicity in
fraud and the plunder of he public treas
ury, a million and a half Of dollar-) of the
peoples' money have been stolen and
squandeted; arraigns and condemns the
Republican auditor gemral and state
treasurer for complicity in the Bardsley
affair; arraigns and condemns the conduct
of the Republican state convention for its
condonation aud defense of faithless Re
publican state officers guilty of derelic
tions, some of whom Bat in its councils,
influenced its actions, aud dictated and
controlled its utterances, and pledges the
candidates nominated today to reform
these abuses aud punish those guilty of
Each plank in the platform was cheered
as it was read, and its adoption was unan
imous. The nomination of candidates for
auditor goneral was then begun. Robert
E. "Wright of Allentown and James G.
AlcSparren of Laucaster were placed in
nomination. The baliot resulted: Wright,
37.2; .McSparren, 80. Wright's nomination
was made unanimous.
A. L. Tilden of Erie and Charles W.
Ralondof Middletown were candidates
for state treasurer. Tilden got all but six
votes, and his nomination was made unan
imous. The committee to select delegates at
large to the proposed constitutional con
vention, of which Patnck Foley of Pitts
burg was chairman, reported the names
Mr. Wright, in accenting the nomina
tion for nuditor general, said:
"Never in the history of the country
was there exhibited an administration of
affairs so universally .corrupt as that de
veloped in Pennsylvania within the last
six months. Meeting, therefore, as this
convention does, in the presence of this
overshadowing dishonor, it is but right
that, for tho time being, it should turn
aside from the discussion of current politi
cal topics to the more important and press
ing question of honest government. Your
platform is a very simple one. It empha
sizes the old truths of the Ten Command
ments. The injunction Thou shalt not
steal' is the cardinal. On that plank the
impending battle must be fought. We
must permit no confusion of issues when
the honor of Pennsylvania is at stake.
The discussnn of tariff duties ceased with
us when the treasury of Philadelphia was
looted; the sdver question lost its interest
as the waves from the flood tide of corrup
tion reacned the steps of our state capitol,
and the only reciprocity the people of
Pennsylvania would hear of now is that
which was exampufied when the doors of
the Eastern penitentiary closed upon the
disappearing lorm ol tJaroaiey.
Mr. Tilden followed in a short speech,
thanking tte convention for the honor
conferred upon him.
The convention at 4:40. with three cheers
for the ticket, adjourned without date.
ufacturer whatever equality of conditions
he may have lost by reason of the pay
ment of a higher scale of wages; denounces
the state department for assisting Ameri
can brewers to extend their business in
our sister republics of South America;
favors the submission to- the people of a
female suffrage amendment; declares
against national banks, and advocates the
issue of treasury notes redeemable in gold
or silver, and the maintenance of a metal
reserve sufficient for that purpose, and
calls for the strict enforcement of the civil
service laws.
A resolution that the state committee be
authorized to appoint a committee to con
fer with the Farmers' Alliance, with refer
ence to what steps should be taken to con
serve the best interests of both organiza
tions, was referred to the state committee.
The nominating committee reported in
favor of the following nominations: Gov
ernor, J. W. Uruce, a retired farmer of
Canastota. Madison county; lieutenant
governor, George W. Halleck, a prosperous
farmer of Suffolk county; secretary of
state, William E. Booth, Livingston
county; comptroller, William W. Smith,
Poughkeepsie; state engineered surveyor,
H. P. Forbes, a professor in the University
of Canton, St. Lawrence county; attorney
general, S. E. Crosser, Buffalo. The ticket
was unanimously chosen.
Chicago, Sept. 3. The Alliance men of
Alabama have been calling upon me to re-
here yesterday. "The Alliance organiza
tion in two counties of my district, Bui
lock and Russell, passed resolutions ask
ing me to resign my seat in the house. In
Barber, Henry and Lee, three other coun
ties in tne same district, similar resolu
tions were introduced but voted down. In
Russell and Bullock counties there are 12,
000 voters, and 5,000 of that number are
negroes. As only one-third or le3 of the
whites are Alliance men, tie resolutions
do not represent the feeling of the people,
and Mr. Kolb and his Alliance followers,
in trying to injure me, will not have any
effect. Kolb wants to be governor of Ala
bama, aud that is the secret of the move
ment against me."
Topeka, Kan., Sept. 3. Dr. McLallin,
editor of the Alliance Advocate, said this
morning that every county Alliance which
had so far elected delegate to the October
convention had instructs them for the
sub-treasury scheme, and liat there was
no doubt of it carrying in Kansas.
TOPEKA, Kan., Sept. 3. Senator W. A.
Peffer publishes a card, emphatically de
nying the statement that he has been tra
ducing the name and fame if Kansas dur
ing his travels over the east. He says:
"The man who charges the Kansas Alli
ance speakers in the east with injuring
the credit of the state i- la liar, and he
knows it. You may look over the reports
of mv SDeeches as . given in the Kansas
Farmer, and you will not fiud that I have
ever said anything to injure the credit of
this state. I have told the people of the
east that Kansas is as good a state as there
is in the "Union; that our people are as in
telligent and just as hone-1 as they ever
were. I have said this an said it ropeat
edly. We must have ihoFj money in cir

Washington, Sept. 3. A statement pre

Springfield, 111., Sept. 3. H. E. Taube
neck, chairman of the national committee
of the People's party, in speaking of the
outlook in Ohio, says:
"I think we will make some inroads
there, but I am firmly convinced that Mc
Kmley will be elected governor. The
Democrats are all split up, and are making
a very feeble fight. From the best advices
I have I think 20,000 Democrats will vote
for McKinley. Cleveland is doing all he
can do to defeat his own party in Ohio,
for if the Democrats win there it means
that a free silver plank will be put in the
national Democratic platform in 1892, and
that will make a platform that Clevelaud
cannot stand on. Wo are doiug all we can
to defeat the Republicans, and especially
to prevent the re-election of John Sher
man to the senate, but I regard McKinley's
election as certain."
ALBANT, Sept. 3 At the Prohibition
state convennoa today the committee on
resolutions reported the platform, which
was adopted without amendment. It re
affirms the principles maintained in the
platform adopted by the last national
convention; denounces high license: af
firms that tie legislators of the state, both
democratic end republican, are subject to
the control and dominion of the liquor
interests; en. is for the submission to the
voters ot the state of a prohibitory amend

such commission should so adjust the
details of the tariff schedules that the

WASHINGTON, Sept. a The penitentiary
census shows 45,233 convicts in the United
States. New York leads, with 8,190.
Texas come next, with 3,319. Pennsyl
vania is third on the list, California
fourth, Georgia fifth and Missouri, with
1,701, is sixtfi. Thus it appears that the
prison population does not follow the total
population very closely. Of the 2 Gi8 life
convicts Missouri has only 15. There is a
very striking difference in the proportions
of female convicts east and west. New
York has 5SS female convicts, Massa
chusetts 217, New Jersey S7, Pennsylvania
85. On the other hand. .Missouri has only
36 female convicts, Illinois 45, Kansas 14,
Texas 45, Arkansas 11.
Attention is called to the surprising
variations in averages for different states,
ranging from 2 years and 356 days in Rhode
Island to 12 years and 116 days in Missis
Of the 45,233 prisoners in penitentiaries,
53 were not sentenced, 2.4S6 were serving
sentences of less than one year; 3S,757 had
been sentenced to imprisonment for a defi
nite term of years; 2,6$$ for life: 12 during
their minority and C2 were under sentence
of death and awaiting execution. Where
sentence for a definite term of years is pro
nounced the most common sentence is
found to be for 2 years, and then in the
order stated: For 6, 3, 1, 10. 4, 7 and 6
years. Nearly seven-eichths of the peni
tentiary sentences fall under one of these
varieries. There are reported 132 sentences
of 50 years and over, of which 55 are for
93 years, The number of "fractional" sen
tences is alo shown, which is 4,859; and
taking them into the account the total
duration of imprisonment for not less than
one yerr.but for less than life, ordered by
tHe courts was 22S.110 years and 5 months.
The average term of a sentence, therefore,
is 5 years and 27 days. A tendency to
greater seventy of sentence is apparent in
tne west and south. The average sentence
of a native white convict born of native
parents is 5 years and 308 day; of a for
eign born convict, 5 years and IDS day,
and of a colored convict, 6 years and 183
days. The average sentence of a male con
vict is 6 years and 2So days, and of a female
4 years and lo days.
BERLIN, Sept. 3, A remarkable discor
ery has been made by Dr. Stretch of this
city. He was conducting experiments
with the view of determining how weak a
solution of cocaine would prove effica
cious asalocal anesthetic in surgical opera
tions, when he stumbled upon the fact
that simple water injected under the skin
with & syringe renders the flesh at that
point insensible to pain. The effect of the
water is to create a stigbt swelling. The
space marked by the swelling remains in
sensible to pain for some minutes, so that
incisions can be made without causing the
slightest pain.
ible statement published,
. the treasury will be pr-ac-
l by the payment of about
i of 4K per cents is best
answered by thb fact that we had in the
treasury vesteru iy, in excess of the 100.-
000,000 gold rest rve $117,500,000 of money,
with contingent liabilities of $47,000,000,
leaving a net cakh balance of more than
$60,000,000. As Ito the 17,000,000 in cash

"The best ansjver to these critics is that
the bonds will he paid tomorrow if pre
sented, and the! strain on the treasury
will not be felLt I am entirely satisfied
with tho result. ! More than $25,000,000 in
money, for which there is ao use in the
treasury, will pe put into circulation,
thereby aiding I the business interests of
the country anjl practically assuring a

WAsniNGTON.iSept. 3. The information
received from (phili today at the depart
ments was comprised in tho following
cablegram from Admiral Brown, dated
Valparaiso, Sept- 3:
"Business fully resumed; everything
quiet. Congressional committee, includ
ing two cabinet ministi.s, arrived from
Iquiqua yesterday and go to Santiago
Admiral Brown's cablegram was re
ceived by the navy department, and was
communicated immediately to Mr. Whar
ton, acting secretary of state. While Ad
miral Brown is not a diploma-tic represen
tative of the government, his statement
of facts is taken as an addition to the
official information before thtj department
of state to the effect that Balmaceda's
government is a thing of the past and tl at
the new regime nas oeen estaunsnea. ino
requirements of diplomatic practice have
been so far met that it is probable that
the department of state will now proceed
to take official cognizance of the state
of affairs in Chili, as modified by Balma
ceda's n signation and tho victory of the
congressional party.
Several cablegrams have been sent to
Minister Egan. and there is reason to be
lieve that when ho is satisfied jtbat the
government (even though it be temporary
in form) has been securely established,
th he will immediately open official in
tei course with that government. This
step, it is said at the department, is equi
valent to according a minister to the uew
government, and as soonjas such new gov
ernment officially notifies tho department
of state that it has authorized its special
envoys to represent it rcgula-ly in the
United States, Ss'ior Moutt and his col
leagues will be recognized at the depart
ment of state.
SenorMontt, the principal congressional
envoy here, has received a dispatch, dated
Valparaiso, Sept. 2, saying that General
Baquedauo (to whom President Balmaceda
surrendered the government when he left
Santiago) had given up command. The
re-establishment of the constitution and
laws, tho disp.uch says, was celebrated
ltu lnuescriimuiu euLuusin&ui.
Cur OF Mexico, Sept. 3. The Anglo
American says that a prominent gentle
man of this city, who i3 well known in tho
Anglo-American colony, has received the
following dispatch in cipher, dated at Val
paraiso, Sept. 2:
"President Balmaceda is aboard the
Condello and expects to disembark in San
Francisco. However, if he be pushed by
the insurgent warships he miy land in
Mexico. If he does, extend all possible
protection "
Here is the first definite news regarding
the whereabouts of Balmaceda. The Im
perial and the torpedo boat Cordilla have
sailed north and are said to be pursued by
the cruisers of the congressional party.
Whatever port the fleeing president may
make, he will be protected. No warship
will attempt hfs capture within the marine
league of Mexl(X or of the United States.
Until the new government is formed Bal
maceda is the recognized bead of ChilL If
Balmraeda land3 in Mexico he will receive
the hospitality thattheconstituhon grants

NLondon, Sept a A letter from an of
ficer on an English warship at Valparaiso
asserts that Balmaceda insulted and quar
reled with the American minister, Exan.
and also the French minlBter; that the
latter refusd to accept an apology, but
that Minister Egan renewed his rela
tions with the government, under threats
from Senor Godoy that if Egan gave
Balmaceda trouble, they would send him
aboard an English warrhlp.

ev. Francis L. Patton, president oi
Princeton umversitv. then Dresented the
( question from a Biblical standpoint. He
tha exposition, but the most important
point in success was a moral one. The Ten
Commandments were high-water mark in
morality, and if the nation and the fair
should yield obedience to the fourth com
mandment they would be in a fair way to
oby the other nine. Tho essence of civili
zation, according to Matthew Arnold, was
righteousness. Therefore, if this exposi
tion would make for civllizatiou it must
make for righteousness.
The commission then took a recess.
It was announced on reassembling that
action on the Sunday-closing question
would be deferred until the local directors
of the exposition have made their rules

"Washington, Sept. a Secretary Rusk
today received official notico that the Ger
man government had raised the embargo
ou American pork. The agreement rela
tive to the admission of pork into Germany
was signed at Capo Slay Point about ten
days ago, but, at tho request of tha Ger
man government, tho fact was withheld
from the public press uutil official action
could ba tken by tho home government.
The agreement not only provides for tha
admission of our pork into Germany, but
afro affords tho United States the tamo
schedule with refereace to farm products
as that enjoyod by Russia, Secretary
Rush is confident that ho will soon ba ibla
to extend our market Tor corn by introduc
ing it Into Germany foruao aaau articlo
of food in place of rye, tha crop ot which
in Germany is this year exceedingly short.
To this end ha has instructed his corn
agent, Colonel C. J. Murphy, now in
Europe, to proceed nt once to Berlin and
lay the matter before tho German govern
ment, TnE GE71MAX TRADE.
WAsnrSGTOK, Sept. a The removal of
tho German embarco upon American
pork products renders Interesting a re
view of tho former trade with Germany
In such products. While tha Gorman de
cree of June 20, 1PW, In terras excepted
ham and Zbaeon from tha prohibition, tho
exports of these products declined from
S3.155.507 in ISal to $329,880 in 18S3. In
the year ending Juno SO, 1883. the export
wore increased to a total of $1, 40.203, but
the export of lard fell about f UO.OOQ. In
March, 183, came tha decroo excluding
bacon and hamsandinthoyearondd Juno

(148.014 and $11.
That any American pork, bacon and
hams whatever have found tbeir way
into Germany ninco March 0. 1883, U ex
plained by tun fact that such products aro
admitted Into certain ports to bo trans
ported under government regulation and
iuparvlsion to other sea-going ve9bi fer
consumption on ship board. Tho export

i5.2Su.3S9. England has never excluded
the pork or pork products of lb Uttd
States. Not only have American farmers
been deprived by thefarbltrary naUan of
Germany of a market for pork, haiss awl
bacon, amounting on the average to n&
least 10,000,000 per annum, during the hut
eight years, bat tbe exclusion of these pro

of American lardn to that country.
In 1&81 the exports of lard to Germany

87.140 In 1800 the tti was only t?.Sti,
