crowd was in attendance in anticipation of a
lively fight for sheriff between Dill, present
incumbent, and Jackson and Bogart. It was
known that there werecontestants from four

at the opening of the convention by securing
the organization. V. Simpson was elected
chairman, and J. W. Dickson secretary. The
oontested delegations were all settled by the
committee on credentials, who-reported
about eighty-eight delegates en
titled to seats in the convention.
On the informal ballot Dill received 40
votes, Jackson 21 and Bogart 22. A second
informal ballot gave Dill 45, he gaining
some of Bogart's delegates. A formal bal
lot was thin taken, in which Dill received

On motion of Judge Abbott John Quincy
Adams was nominated by acclamation for gov

ed to name the remainder of the ticket when a
delegate nominated Gen. M. T. Donohoe for
secretary of State. There were cries of "No,
no. He is a Butler man give it to us straight."
A gentleman said that the person who named
Donohoe was not a member of the convention.
A committee was appointed to complete the
ticket. Judge Abbott reported that Mr. Adams
was out of town, but would take the flag of
the Democracy and bear it where the conven

The ticket was completed as follows For
lieutenant governor, W. P. Plunkett secretary
of state, Gen. M. T. Donahoe treasurer and
receiver general, David N. Skillings auditor,
Wm. B. Field attornev general, RichardOlney.
J. G. Abbott, P. A. Collins, Geo. W. Gill and
Reuben Noble were elected delegates at large
to the national convention.
The following resolutions were adopted:
The Democrats of Massachusetts, in conven
tion assembled, reaffirm the national Demo*
cratic platform of 1876 as an authoritative ex
position of the principles of our party, and
congratulate our political brethren of the
whole country that these principles were in
dorsed in the national canvass by the suffrages
of a decided majority of the American people
and the electoral college.
We pronounce a verdict of guilty upon the
Republican party and demand stern retribu
tion for the great public crime by which the
people were defrauded of their right to be gov
erned by the ruler of their choice and by which
the elective principle was wounded in its most
We assume that the liberties of the individu
al is best protected by a constitutional division
of power of the government between State and
federal officials, and we favor a strict construc
tion of that constitutional grant which shall
prevent encroachment by either State or fed
eral legislation on the rights granted to the
other, or those which are reserved to the peo
ple, individually or collectively, to the end that
we may remain a free and sovereign people.
The whole spirit of the declaration of inde
pendence, as well as the letter, that all men are
equally entitled to the enjoyment of life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness, points to
the right of suffrage as the only means by
which this equality of liberty and obedience
to constitutional law can be enjoyed together
by them, and we denounce the restrictions and
abridgement of the right of suffrage by the
legislature of Massachusetts as dangerous to
liberty and subversive of the supremacy of
justice and reason in affairs of State.
We demand that the exercise of right of suf
frage should be encouraged and the
registry law so formed that the largest possi
ble portion of the community may be brought
under the educating influence of participa
tion in public affairs, and a voice in the mak
ing of the laws, by which they are to be gov
erned, and we believe the present registry
laws are framed more for defranchising citi
zens than for protecting the purity of the bal
We believe thorough reform in the laws
regulating the levy of taxes is absolutely
necessary. We favor measures which will
tend to elevation of labor and the improve
ment of the condition of *the laboring men,
and we oppose all legislation as to labor which
tends to make labor dishonorable or gives
social or political preference to any class in so
ciety or special advantages over others.
We desire to promote free thought, free
speech, free education, and free and equal
rights to every man, and protection in the
enjoyment of his own religion.
We believe in a prosperity arising from in
dustry and economy, and we denounce the
grant of exclusive privileges to any body of
men, the extravagance of the State administra
tion, and the laying of burdens on one class of
men for the benefit of another class, or from
which others are exempted.
We oppose the future borrowing of money
by States, cities or towns, so that an end may
be put to the system which anticipates the
labor of coming ages and appropriates the
fruits of it in advance, which coins the in
dustry of future generations into cash and
snatches the inheritance from children yet un
We believe there are too many commission
ers in the State and too little executive and
legislature control over them too many and
too summary laws, too much special legisla

effort to restrict liberty and invent new crimes
and misdemeacors, and too many obsolete
lawR kept on the statute book, and we arraign
the Republican party and all its clique, that
its legislation in this State is adverse to the
progresive spirit of civil liberty and tends to
the degredation of the citizens and to the cre

We believe in self-government by the people
and desire that the polls shall be free from in
terference of federal bayonets, directed by the
intrigues of a federal partisan executive.
We believe that the purity of the ballot-box
can be better preserved through State author
ity than by federal interference.
We protest against laws which authorize the
arrest of citizens at the polls without warrant

We rejoice with the oountry at large in the
renewed prosperity that attends agricultural
and manufacturing pursuits, but we deprecate
the carrying trade of the products of our soil
in control of foreign flags, "which almost ban
ished our flag from the seas, and imperiled the
pursuit of fisheries among our sea coast popu

spoils she never would have conquered, and
abandoned the trident of the seat to her hands.
We require that the candidates of this con
vention should represent Democratic princi
ples as to the conduct of both national and
State affairs, that well meaning men may give
their votes where Democratic men and meas
ures had the way.
We regard the civil damage bill, passed by
the Republican legislature, as a violation of
the constitution of the United States, impair
ing the supremacy of laws made in pursuance
thereof, and as an encouragement of perjury
and blackmailing in the State.
The Presidential election in 1876 and the
subsequent election of a Democratic majority
in each house of Congress demonstrates the as
cendancy of Democratic principles among the
people in the States of this Union. We remind
every Democrat that by uniting hearts and
hands in supprt of the regular organization the
triumph of those principles and candidates in
1880 will be assured, and we affirm that Demo
crats who separate from the regular organiza
tion in order to promote the election of either
of the Republican candidates for Governor,
are pursuing a course of evil example to the
regular organization of Democrats throughout
the Union and are imperilling the vital inter
ests of the Democratic brotherhood of the
We call every true and tried Democrat of
Massachusetts to search his heart for his faith,
and stand here and be counted in the organi

that rule of monopoly, corruption and oppres

Presidents by fraud, and substitute despotism
for constitutional government 'which the Re

nominees of the Massachusetts Democracy.

CONTEST FOB THE O'LEABY BELT.
NEW YORK, Oct. 7.Blower Brown, Boyle,
Costello, and McLean have retired from the
match and there are now but twenty left of
the thirty-five starters. There were..fully five
thousand people the garden by 10 o'clock
to-night, and as young Murphy forged ahead
to the completion of his 200th mile the most
hearty applause greated him. He ran most of
the 200th mile, and was almost as fresh as
when he started. The performance of
the boy is looked upon as
wonderful. He is now off the track for a rest
of several hours. The colored boy Pierce goes
around the track with his eye partly closed
and suffers for the want of rest. Near 11
o'clock he made a rush for entrance to his
room, intending to go to sleep, but the stout
and brutal looking fellow, who iB his backer,
caught him by the arms and flung him out on
the track. He insisted on the colored man's
keeping along, although it was apparent to
everyone that he was staggering from exhaus
tion. He threw bay rum and perfume in his
face to keep him awake. The poor fellow trot
ted around and his efforts to keep his eyes open
were painful. Behrman, who was known as
the ancient mariner of the race, finished his
100 miles and 1 lap at 11:25 p. M. and then told
the judges he had got enough of it. His wife
and friends packed up his traps and they took
their departure for Jersey. It is said the only
reason he kept on the track so long was to
prove that he could walk 100 miles and win a
keg of lager beer.

Miller's Station, taking water, he observed a
large balloon directly overhead, which he
judged to be less than a mile away, driving
rapidly along in a northeasterly direction to
wards Lake Michigan, which is only half a
mile from the station. John Bulla, his fire
man, states he also saw the balloon and with
Faber watched it out of sight. They told the
operator at Forty-third street about the matter
the same night. It was undoubtedly the Wise

noon between Edwin -Gribbel, attorney at
law and agent for the Blanchard food cure,
and Elizabeth A. Buell, residing at No. 63

ered that he had been practically barred out,
and it is stated that he proceeded to adjust
the difference by banging down the door
with repeated applications of his brogans.
Mrs. Buell dawned on the scene ready to
hold the fort if it took all summer, but the
exoessive gallantry of the eounsel precluded
Atlast aooounts Mr. Gribble had succeed

that had grown so ineffably obnoxious.

verified by a GLOBE reporter, who visited the
locality indicated, and ascertained the follow
ing information: A few minutes before 10
o'clock Conductor G. P. Biggie, in charge of a
working train on the short line, fell from one
of the front cars beneath the moving train,

In addition to having his legs terribly man
gled, the sufferer was otherwise injured about'
the head, but a hasty diagnosis discovered no
serious internal injuries. The sad affair was
purely accidental, and, as the victim was con
scious at 2 o'clock this morninj, hopes were
entertained of saving his life.
