A dispatch from Rawlins, Wyoming ter ritory, sayE : it is learned from what is be lieved to ba an official source, that there will be no strike on the Union Pacific rail road.5The reason given is that the knights of labor, by organizing a strike would practi cally endorse the killing of the Chinese at Rock Springs. Bo they have determined to settle the trouble by more suitable means. The Chinese are all at work at Rock Springs mine, and considerable coal is being turned out. A few white miners have accepted passes to other points. They are remain ing, refusing to go to wojk.

Some of the women are in a criti cal condition and may die. The band that went to the house of Tom Carver, a noted thief, and beat him to death, after tortur ing him for a half hour. Another negro, named Armstad, was so terribly beaten that he will die. The band then notified several persons to leave the place at once or they would be killed. No clue can be had as to the identity of thena. The mob took in all the disreputable houses, regard less of the color of the occupants. They 'went to the mayor's office and left a list of tnose under mob surveillance. The whole affair was an effort to rid Dalton of the bad characters that infest the town. KMystetyABtIt.

Thomas; for state engineer, Wm P. Van Renslaer. The following platform was then adopted: THX FLATTOK The republican party oi New York, Is eonvea tlon assembled, declare: First That the provisions of the exftthur civi service laws of the state and nation nhculd bl Btt ngthenel and extended to all grades of the pubac Ptnrice to which they mayte applicable, bo that the selection of administrative officers la the civil service shall, fo far an possible, be gov erned solely by capacity and fitness. We insist upon the enforcement of these laws by all public officers not oa!y in tbe letter, but also m the fplrir. Honorably discharged solditraand sailor, wno are Known by competitive examination to possess the necessary requirements, should be given the preference 'n certification and in ap pointment. fcecoud That laws Affecting the government of citiest should be simplified, so as to enable the people to fix the responsibility with ease and osr taintv. Third That we demand of congress the pas sage of an act patting an end to the enlargement of the tock of money formed of silver or basd on Bllver. I he maintenance of the gold standard of purity, witn gold and nil kinds of money la use. is essential to the prop3rity of the country; a d toe restoration of silver to it former position K8 Rood money, through eqnalitywirh gold before tbe law, in the mj nty of commecial nations, ntnt remain, until accomplished, the thief aim of o a monetary poti y. Fourth, That we emphasize the demand oftha last national republican convention, that tie im peition of duties on foreign Imports shall ba ma 1 not for raven e only, but that in raising re quhite revenue for the government such duties hall be levied a to afford security to our diversi fied industries aad protection to the interests of labor to the end, intelligent labor as well as capital may have its ji'St reward; and the labor ing man have his full share in the national pros- i perity. The persistent threats of democratic leaders to overthrow this policy adds to tne preent troubles of tnde and paralyses industry. Until the full effects cf the revision of 1S83 can be fairly estimated, agitation for a radica- change in the tariff law h a gratintous assault ou the wases of labor, on all branches of production, and all interests of traffic. We are opposed t the in troduction of any system of free tra'e, the in evitable effect nf which wnu d be to destroy our mi Is and factories, and carry dewn American waep to the standard oi the old world. Fifih That while w certainly endorse the dyixc sentiments of the great soldier and citizen, U S. Grant, in favor of harmony and good feel ing between prrth and sauth, we insist on the eniorceTiei" f the guarantees of equnl civil and poll leal rgYs i rmied by the utistitution to evcryfeeiL.it . 1 lit light of suflrage must be maintained, free and uuttamme'ed, and if that right is unlawfully dned to any part of the people nf any sate, its representation in congress ana tbe electoral college bhoul be reduced. ?ixth That the legislature having, in pursu ance! to th will of the people, expressed at thj polls, abolmbed the sjbtem of contract labor in the prisons of the ftate. we urge the enactment of laws tending to distr.bute as wldt Iv and equit able a-possible thj Lu:den of competition with fre labor, Seventh That in lettlDg the contracts for state work no contract should b i award d to any cor pcation dl-critnint Jng agtiubt any c!as oc orvfiniza'ion of laborers. We believe that the duty of tbe republican majority of the senate is to oppose the confirma tion of any pen on appointed in vio' at ion of the letti r or the civil s-xvice law. We denounce tne national administration for its obvious willingness to abandon the opinions th' y har p ofe.ssd uponcurr ncy and to c. mpro misti with those lenders of heir party who are avowedly in favor of the continued debasement or toe currency tor its nostiuy to the commerce of the' conntry evinced by its retu4l to carry out the system adop'ed by congress for the encouragement of American shipping for is arbitmiy aciioo in repudiating the contracting regularly entcrtd into by duly authoriz d agents of the government and perse vering in its attempt to deprive American me chanics of tbe mean of livelihood until aroused public opinion compelled it to abandon its at-t-mp'; and for its hostility further evinced by the arbitrary enforcement of customs law. by provis ion mi I tricks intended to deprive merchants of a fair opportunity for assarting their rights. We i uounce the democra lc executive of the stve for his action in refcience to the ce-ieus, re sulting in an extra ses Jon ol ih i gklatnre at a large and useless exp nse, while he vetoed neces sarr apprcprini ions tor th state board of health in th'- face of decided tp demies. We dt-nounce his conduct in vetoing the Brock lvn reform bills in order to commend himself U the lo al democratic leaders, while he approved bills legalzing claims dating from tbe days of Tweed, bane by the statute of ltmittkna and by judicial decisions, and thereby imp ed addi U nal burdens upon an overburdened city. Eighth That we recommend legislation gnar anteeringthe benefits of public schools to all children of tbe state and such control of factory emp'oyment as will surround the women snl chi.dren employes therein with the necessary s ite-guards tor their paytical, mental and moral well-being. Ninth That stringent laws sbonlJ be passed for the Improvement ef the sanitary condition of the homes of the orkingmen in cities. Tenth That we demand the strict enforcement by the nat onal government ot a law prohibiting. me importing oi contract jaoor Eleventh That we recommend legislators to foster the agricultural and dairy interests of the tate and such as will prevent the adulteration of articles of food. 1 welfth i hat we favor the continuance of the nUroad commission upon a non partisan bbtia, ' Thlruenth That in the interest of cheay transportation for the country and reduced tax tion for the people of this state, we declare is favor of asking the national government to assist in tbe Improvement of locks and the deepening of the channel of the Erie canal muder ttte control 14th Th 1 1 c- improvement of toe levy tax as, commeno d by the r. ent rep llcan If gis at tio.i unrie- Li h 1 rge sum have been c 11 tat f om sourc s wni h previously ha e-ea ed tas tion, lioul bepe-feete sni extended so a thf bur en nay fall equally on all classes of proper Fiftee th We cmde-rn the hypocrisy of tk democrati p ry In pledging itself before eie tk ociI ervi ere or m, aad site' the ele tion de n uucing thn.tuh its r at a d eadera be crrl te vice actri nnc nstltuilona1, whu the nation- l a minist atiou r m res tnei an nutn w public Fervants. and replac sth m with renont whose nly ec m ndatioa is active and ia some instance oicr. putable political w rk.
