LOUISVILLE, Sept. 12. Thousands
of National Democrats did honor to the
nominees of their party for President
and Vice-President at the Auditorium
tonight. The occasion was the formal
notification to the candidates of the
action of the Indianapolis Convention.
Senator Caffery, from the Far South,
in -words of -warmest personal friendliness,
made the speech notifying John
M. Palmer, the hoary-headed Federal
General, who tomorrow turns his
three-score and nineteen years. Sectionalism
was again disregarded when
the eloquent Xew Yorker, Colonel
John R. Fellows, tendered to General
S. B. Buckner. a gallant
ate, the honor of second place on the
National ticket. The speeches of these
four gentlemen, together with the messages
of hearty sympathy from the
leaders of the movement who were
unable to attend the notification ceremonies,
furnished the inspiration for
repeated outbursts of enthusiasm.
National Committeeman Zack Phelps
of Louisville called the meeting to order
in a few well-chosen words,
with the statement that for the
first time in four years the Democratic
party was to hold a notification meet
ing. The auaience arose aau mus
"America." after which Mr. Phelps in
troduced W. D. Bynum. chairman of
the National Committee, as the presiding
officer. Mr. Bynum stated the
purpose of the meeting, concluding
with the reading of a number of
rrams. not3blr one from President
Cleveland. This was eagerly waited
by the crowd. It had been the talk of
thf street and the hotels all day. Its
reading created the greatest enthusi
asm of the evening. The telegram
was as follows:
BUZZARD'S BAY (Mass.), Sept. 12.
Tn w. T. Bvnnm: I regret that I
cannot accept your invitation to at'
tpnd the notification meeting on Sat
urday evening. As a Democrat, devoted
to the principles and integrity
of mv party, I should be delighted to
be nresent on an occasion so signih
cant, and to mingle with those who are
determined that the voice of true Democracy
shall not be smothered, and
insist that its glorious standard shall
be borne aloft, as of old, in iaitniui
Aimnsr as much enthusiasm was
aroused by the following telegram
from Secretary Carlisle:
WASHINGTON (D. C), Sept. 12.
To W. D. Bynum: Your telegram
me to attend the meeting at
Louisville today has been forwarded
to me at this place and I greatly re-
jTfit mv inability to accept, tne con
servative and patrotic declaration of
the Indianapolis convention on the
public questions involved in the
wwitest and the high character of
its nominees cannot fail to arouse the
real Democratic sentiment or the coun
try and command the hearty support
rvf all who sincerely believe in tne
preservation of the public honor, the
public peace ana tne staouuy &i
of the currency used by our people.
I am proud to take my stand with the
old-fashioned Democrats wno nave re-
iased to abadon their honest convic
tions in order to form unnatural alii'
ances with political and social organ
isations whoses purposes are danger
ous to the country and wholly incon
sistent with the fundamental
pies of our party, and I pledge to you
ami your associates such support and
assistance as I can properly give during

Republican Plurality In Cloe
borkued or OO.OOO.
PORTLAND, Sept 15. Corrected re
turns from country districts indicate
that tie Republican plurality will be in
the neighborhood of 50,We. The latest
ficures, based on careful estimates of
votes bv counties, with lw towns miss
ing, give Powers 46.3S7 plurality over
Frank. Returns from small towns and
plantations in distant parts of the State
are as usual coming in very slowly,
and it is not probable that all of them
will be heard from before tomorrow.
In every county in the State the Re-
TKiblican ticket was successful, and al
most every town showed a Republican
rein. The Democratic vote is abont
48 per cent less than in 1SS2. About
2 per cent of this has gone to the Re
publican ticket, and the
are responsible for the other halt
The vote of the Populists and the
Prohibitionists throughout the State
shows a loss from 1SS2 of about 26 per
cent- Considering the vote of the missing
towns two years ago, the total vote
is estimated at 124,000 in round numbers.
In the First Congressional District
Reed's plurality is 16,566. Dingley has
about 11,000 plurality in the Second
District, and Millikea nearly 12,000 in
the Third. There are more missing
towns in the Fourth District than in
any other, but from figures at hand it
is estimated that Bontelle's plurality
Trill be almost 15,000.
In, the Representative districts heard
from the election of but five Democrats

of these districts there is doubt All of
the thirty-one Senators are Republican. j

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Sept S. The
Democracj' of Arkansas yesterday won
the greatest' victoryin the history, of
the State. Never before was such an
overwhelming majority given any gubernatorial
candidate as that which was
yesterday given General Dan "VV. Jones,
and never was such a large vote polled
in the State. Conservative estimates
based on partial returns received now
place the total vote at 165,000 and give
Jones a clear majority over all opponents
combined of from 60,000 to 65,000.
The figures are coming in slowly, and
many enthusiastic Democrats claim
that when the back counties are heard
from Jones' majority will run above
70,000. Many counties in Arkansas have
no telegraph, and it will be several
days before the returns are all in.
Nearly all the counties and precincts
so far heard from show large Democratic
gains over the vote of two years
ago. Local option contests served to
bring out a heavy vote in many districts.
No disturbances of any kind have
been reported and few arrests were
made. The Republicans and Populists
are making, no claims tonight, but are
awaiting official returns. Local tickets
are In doubt in a few counties, but in
most cases the only question is as to
the size of the Democratic majority.
It is generally conceded that Renimel

Files (Pop.) 15.000, and Miller (Pro.)
2,000 for Governor. This would leave
Jones with over 120,000, or nearly 64,000
majority over all.
Two years ago, when Governor
Clarke was elected, 126,000 votes were

Evidence-Prisoner Heard the Verdict Uke

Threatened To te Sentenced.
SAN FRANCISCO. Sept 17. Oliver
"Winfield Winthrop stands convicted
of robbery of James Campbell, the rich
Hawaiian planter.
The jury was out a scant five min
utes before returning a verdict of
"guilty as charged." At the request
of the defendant's attorney the jury
was polled and each man responded
that that was his verdict Notice of
a motion for a new trial was made.
Monday morning next was set for pronouncing
The jury received the thanks of the
Court for its attentive service. It was
discharged and the trial involving a
most remarkable criminal undertaking
was at an end.
There was no scene, no demonstration.
The defendant betrayed the effect
on him only by a tense drawing of the
muscles of the face and an increased
pallor of the countenance. He had
feared the verdict and was prepared
for it. Not a word or a sound escaped
him. He sat stolidly in his chair.
Mrs. "Winthrop, who had sat beside
him all morning, was led by Attorney
Quitzow into the Judge's chamber be
fore the jury returned with its verdict.
She must have felt, however,
from the brief time the jurors were
out and from their serious faces as
they filed past her from the juryroom
that their was no hope of an acquittal.
It was her husband who -first told
her the crushing truth. He was taken
into the Judge's chamber by the Sheriff
and a most affecting scene ensued,
Mrs. Winthrop threw herself in her
husband's arms and wept She was
not hysterical, but she seemed incon
Her mother, Mrs. Brooks, who has
been steadily in attendance at the trial
for the last few days, came into the
.room with the two Winthrop boys,
who are too young to realize what has
befallen them. But they knew by
their mother's tears and their grand
mother's distress and by their father's
evident deep feeling, though he shed
no tears, that something appalling had
happened and they clung to their par
ents, weeping bitterly.
It was some time before the Sheriff
in the performance of his duty could
bring himself to separate the convicted
husband from his distracted wife and
take him back to the County Jail. It
was longer still before Mrs. Winthrop
was composed enough to be led by her
mother to her home.
Immediately after the jury was dis
charged Mrs. Brooks aavanced to the
jury-box and asked which was Mr.
McCullough. She engaged him in earnest
conversation for two or three min
utes, quietly, not loud or demonstra
lively. What she said was heard by
him alone. He said afterward that
what she said was what a heart-broken
woman who believed in the innocence
of her daughter's husband might be
expected to say m expostulation and
regret, but more than that he felt that
delicacy forbade him to speak of.
After court was adjourned Mrs,
Winthrop followed Mrs. Dunton, the
woman from whom Winthrop rented
the California-street cottage, from the
and threatened to do her
bodily harm. Mrs. Dunton became
alarmed and went to the office of the
Chief of Police for protection. Police-
man Samuels was detailed to escort
her in Tipt" linmo
The proceedings oi tne com-. aside
frnm Ihp rpr(1iot and th ifmiriPnt;
jsjeriug around it were not different
ctaracter from those of the other
of tho trial. The

first known. Near him was W. H.

I called at the Occidental Hotel on that
i significent Jlonday to bid James Camp-
I bell good-by, was there, also Cecil
j Brown, Campbell's agent and attornev.
I With Winthrop were his wife and
children, his wife's mother and E. T.
Hicks, who has been constantly help-
ing to secure evidence for the defense
since Winthrop's arrest
Besides these and the lawyers and
the court and police officials there in
the discharge of their duty, those in at-
tendance were the motley court-room
crowd, drawn through motives of curi
osiry and interest in some of those
chiefly concerned in the case.
Assistant District Attorney Black
enpied a little more than an hour in
his closing argument It was a clear,
earnest discussion of the arguments
made the day before by Attorney Bell
and the evidence upon which that ar-
gnment was based. There was no
crepancy. he claimed, between Camp-
"Fete" had left him T,if Mnv fmm
man was t thp nrhstnnp
with him and told him that was the!
car to take.
The defendant, Black claimed, was all
the time acting as a man would who
was trying to build up an alibi in, advance.
But the proof the defendant
had introduced of his whereabouts was
entirely consistent with Campbell's
statements of the times when Winthrop
was at the cottage..
Of the effort made by the defense to
disc'relit Urquhart Black said there
could not be a record produced to show
that he had ever been convicted of n
Winthrop' remark to Cody when the
latter discovered on him the clippings
from the papers about the case, that,
"the jig's up, Cody; you're right," Black
held, was the remark of a guilty man
fully cornered.
In closing Black urged that whatever
the feelings of pity or sympathy the
jurors might have as men for the wife
and children, upon whom the blow
would fall heaviest, they could not let
that interfere with the discharge of
their duty if the evidence convinced
them of the defendant's guilt
Judge Wallace's charge to the jury
was conceded to be eminently fair to
the defendant, even by his attorneys.
It stated the propositions of law gov
erning the questions of the presumption
of innocence, of reasonable doubt
and moral certainty. Of the facts themselves
the jurors, he said.were the
qualified and sole judges.
The jurors retired at 11:35 o'clock.
Five minutes latter they returned with
their verdict The penalty for robbery
is a term in the penitentiary of from
one year to life. The almost universal
opinion about the courtroom and
among those who have followed the
case is that Winthrop will get a life
sentence or a term so long as to be
equivalent to a life term.
Captain Lees and Assistant District
Attorney Black assert that the Urquhart
convicted of embezzlement in
Manitoba in 1SS9 is not the Urquhart
who testified in this case, but a half-brother
of Donald Archibald
father, named D. W. Urquhart.

His Career in Hawaii-From School to Cabinet.
One of the Brightest Hawaiian Members
of the Bar.
Joseph Nawahi, one of the ablest Hawaiian
members of the Honolulu bar,
died in San Francisco from consumption
on the 14th inst He had been in
failing health here for some time, and
visited California in the hope that a
change of climate would benefit him,
but his weakened condition left him
without the means to combat the disease.
Mr. Nawahi was a native of the Island
of Hawaii, 54 years old, and was
reared by Rev. D. B. Lyman.
He received his education at his
hands and became a pupil at the
Seminary on Maui, from in-
f VfW YA
stitution he was graduated. Afterwards
he became a teacher in the Hilo
schools, subsequently leaving to take
up the study and parctice of law. Twenty-five
years ago he entered the field of
politics, representing his district in
the Legislature of 1872.
He was an ardent friend and lover of
his country, but never sought positions
of emolument under any regime. For
a short time in 1S92, when the cabinets
were built and destroyed in a day, he
accepted the portfolio of Foreign Affairs.
Beyond that his connection with
the affairs of government was in the
hall of the Legislature. He was suspected
of conspiracy on several occasions
and was in prison only while
waiting for trial.
His remains will be returned to Honolulu
on Monday by the S. S. Australia.

should place himself in a position to

something not easily explained.

seemed his. Fame' Invited, fortune favored,
