A large crowd should greet the boys to day on their return. The game with the Brooklyns should attract interest, from the fact that it is a good team and the boys will do their best to win both games. There Is a general impression that some of the League and American Association clubs indend to have reserve nines for next season. The Cincinnati Club has already signed 23 players, the Allegheny Club is after enough Inter-8tate players to fill three nines, and the players have been notified that an agent of the club will be among them In the East this week. The Philadel phia Club is also in the market for players, but has not signed any as yet. Despite the fact that the Northwestern League and Inter-State Association are under the same protection as the League and American Association the latter are now breaking into the niDCB of the former, al though their rules explicitly state that no players under the protection of either asso ciation shall be signed until after October 10. Cincinnati first broke the rule about 10 »lays ago, when Peoples, of the Indianapolis nine, was signed for next season for $1,500. The Allegheny club came alone next aud signed Knowles, the first baseman of the Anthracites. Ou Wednesday evening Man ager Bancroft, of the Cleveland nine, signed Harkins, pitcher of the Trenton nine, and about the same time Mr. Simmons, of the Athletic club, put up the advance money for MilligaL, the Anthracite catcher, who agreed to play next season for $1,000. A VALUABLE kixokd. Registration of Nurses as Suggested by Physicians. (Morning News.] At the instance of Beveral prominent physicians E. B. Frazer, Secretary of the Board of Health, has gotten up a book for the registration of nurses. It was neatly printed by the James A Webb Company and is well arranged. Any nurse desiring to be re, istered first obtains a blank from the registrar, has it filled up and filed for regis tration. The blank reads as follows: "Wilmington, Del., the President and Members of the Board of Health—Gentlemen: We, the undersigned, do recommend tent aud experienced nurse for sick persons, being trustworthy and industrious." Then follows the names of those recom mending the applicant. Iu the book each nurse's record occupies two pages, the following facts being giveu in regard to them: Name, date of registra tion, residence, street, age, color, nativity, names of signers, reference, date, by whom employed, whei-e, the physician in charge of the case, disease, month and day of dis charge, remarks. The plan, which is similar to that adopted in other cities, is expected to be of great benefit to the physicians aud nurses and those having sickness as well. Anyone de siring aid in the sick-room has only to apply to the office of the Board of Health, where they, at a glance, can see what nurses are available aud by whom they are recom mended. Physicians are often requested to obtain nurses and have great trouble in ob taining the address of competent help. By the aid of the registration book much valu able time Is expected to be saved. The reg istration is not at all obligatory nor re quired by law, but is merely proposed a6 a matte.- of mutual benefit to all interested parties. , 188 .—To -to be a cotnpe Off for Norristown.

A 80ÏÏND PIATFOEM ADOPTED; Balloting Amid Considerable Confusion— Abbott Leads from the Mtart and Carries Off the Prise. Trenton, Sept 13.—The delegates to the Democratic State Convention were slow in coming, and all the morning there were rumors of dissatisfaction. Mr. Albright having failed to unite his forces it was con ceded that he coaid not be nominated, and the leaders'began to cast about for anybody t > beat Abbett. A friend of Joel Parker de clared that he would not run, and there was some talk of taking up General Fltz John Porter as a "dark horse," but this was op posed by the Tnen who helped along the McClellan boom some time since. Senator Cochran, of Sussex county; Judge Cutler, of Mon s county; Dr. J. 8. Whittaker, of (, «pe May; Judge Sctidder, of Mercer; Charles E. Hendrickson, of Burlington, ami others had their advocates Abbett, ol Hudson, well :ifi Aibrigh', of Essex, who were spoken of a e the favorites Tin re was deni of nglln : gre among the delegations, but it was lanltivt the first that u<* very strong iiqii'S « ould be tunned.

T. McDermott, of Hudson county, was the choice of the. Executive Committee lor tem porary chairman. Alter taking his seat, finding there was no opposition, he arose and made, a brief address, predicting that the Democrats would win next November and double the triumph in 1884. was then taken and on reassembling, at 2.30 o'olor k, the committee on organization re ported in favor of Hon. George O. Vander bilt, of Mercer, for president, elected without opposition, and made a few remarks in favor of harmonious action. Then the long list of vice presidents and sec retaries was approved, and following this the roll was called, and It was announced that there were but two contests. These were speedily settled, and the convention was ready for work. The resolutions were read and unani mously adopted. ure siicee was A recess He was follows: First. The people should only be taxed much as is absolutely indlspensible for the frugal conduct of their public affairs, not one cent for surplus and no unnecessary taxation. The existing surplus in the Treas ury should be faithfully applied to the pay ment of the public debt. The money not needed for the ex;>ense of the government should remain in the pockets of the people, to this end we favor the entire abolition of the present system of internal taxation, a nurse« y of spoils, and informers, a menace to the freedom of elections, a source of the greatest corruption and an intolerable and unnecessary burden upon the taxpayers. We insist that the public lands shall be served to actual settlers, not another acre for subsidies; that the dignity of American labor shall be defended, as also the rights of American citizens at home and abroad. Secoud. We favor a tariff for revenue, limited to the expenditure of the govern ment, and so adjusted as to give protec tion and encouragement to home produc tive Industry and labor without producing or fostering monopolies. Third. We point with pride to the suc cessful administration of under Democratic rule.and operation of men of all parties in continuing that rule to the end that the welfare and happiness of the people be secured. Fourth. We contrast the holiest and economical management of State affairs by Democratic hands with the corrupt and dis graceiul administration of the Federal Government under Republican rule, with its Credit Mobilier, its whisky rings, its Star Route frauds and other like iniquities. Fifth. We demand the equalization of all properties within the State, whether that of individuals re State affairs Invite the co tfi KM corporations. No hindrance to legitimate enterprise. No encouragement of monopolies. All govern ment in the interest of the whole people. Sixth. Every legitimate effort of labor to bet ter its con lition,enhance Its reward and pro tect its rights commands the sympathy aud support of the Democratic party, which is a natural foe of monopoly and the natural friend of the workingman. The present un precedented and unsatisfactory condition of the relations of labor aud capital demands t ie careful thought of legislators, «lue re gard had to the vested rights of capital and the claims of private enterprise. THE BALLOTS. After a dozen candidates had been pre sented and speeches made in their behalf the convention proceeded to vote, with this result : First ballot—Abbett, 218; Albright, 139; Whittaker, 116; Hendrickson, 47; Cochran, 44; Cutler, 43; scattering, 25. As 3l7 was the number needed to make a choice there was no election, but it pretty evident that Senator A obett had a lead that could not be resist d. The second ballot was begun amid great confusion. It impossible to tell vote« as they were cast. The tide began to turn in favor of Abbett, however, and soon the chairman declared that he was elected. Then the wildest Albright men jumped on the seats, eursed the nomination,and declared that they would bolt. The final vote, according to the secretary .showed 333 votes for Abbett, more than were necessary to a choice. This wag not the vote as It 6tood, but It nominated Mr. Abbett. The vote as it stood at the time of the announcement was : Mr. Abbett, 414—the balance divided between Mr. Albright and others. The motion to make Mr. Abbett's nomina voted agaiust by three from Essex couuty. The convention then proceeded to sei the new State Committee, and immediate*..) afterwards adjourned. nfusion ensued.
