SALT Lass, Sept. 16.-In the irrigation congress to-day, Francis D. Newlands, of Nevada. argued that the field of individual effort in. the matter of irrigation is now exhausted, and the time ripe for actiod by the government and states. The United States should make grants in the arid regions with a view to developing the school interests. The government should also en force the preservation of forests. A resolu tion was introduced and deferred, calling for the issue of bonds to the amount of $150,000,000 for irrigation, the bonds to be redeemable in treasury notes issued against them. In the afternoob Judge Goodwin, of Salt Lake, Senator Warren, of Wyoming, and W. H. Mills and John P. Irish were the chief orators. Irish did not favor the coeding of the lands to states and territories by the national government, but thought that the state government should assume the relation of trustor and trustee on a plan similar to that of Illinois in the days of Stephen A. Douglass. The question of irrigation he considered largely one of population. Conaress should be asked to deed the arid lands to the respective states and territories in trust.

The iron piping that it is contemplated to use will cost $10,000. Fought Nineteen Rounds.

November; The Swindles and Humbugs of the Sepublioan Party Plainly Denounoed. lasusachsetts Republieans Endorse Their Party sad All Its Leadoew-Thk Tick et NelmtWated-The Warmers. BAAATOGA, N. Y., Sept. 18.-Promptly at 10 o'clock this mogning the demooraticstate convention was called to order. After a decision in regard to the county democracy i was presented, the committee on reolu tions reported the platform. r " ZOeWELL P. LOWL It pledges fidelity to the democratic faith as regards the national issues, and the doo trines of the national platforms of 1884 and 1888 are reaffirmed. The platform pro nounces against the coinage of any dollar not of the intrinsic value of every other dol l lar of the United States; denounces the new Sherman bill as a false pretense and hin drance to free bimetallic coinage and as tending only to prodnuce a change'from one kind of monometalism to another. This Sbill is declared to be "a ft appendix to the subsidy and bounty swindle, the McKinley bill, and worse than the war tariff, the Blaine resiprocity humbug, the squandered surplus, falsified representation and revo luntionary procedure of the billion-dollar congress-all justly condemned by the peo ple at the great uprising last November." The people of the state are congratulated upon the beneficent results which followed the election of a democratic assembly last year. The republican party is scored for defeating the assembly bills passed by the democrats. Continuing, the platform reads: "Thus has the repdblican party con tinned to betray the people's interests. It defies the constitution and denies a fair representation in the legislature to 1,800,000 new inhabitants of the state by refusing to pass the enumeration bill." The platform favors home rule for coun ties and mumonicpalities, low taxes and ecomical administration and demands the enactment of a just, equitable and compre hensive law framed in aocodanoe with ex isting public sentiment, as repeatedly man ifested. The resolutions oppose all enumpt nary legislation that needlessly interferes with the liberty of the individual citizen; demand the extension of electoral reform with a view of preventing the profuse ex penditure of money by candidates; favor revision of the tax laws whereby personal and corporate property will be made to bear its full and just burdens; declare that labor interests should be fostered; legisla tive provision for a proper exhibit from the state to the World's Columbian exposition is advocated; oppression and expatriation practiced by the Russian government upon its Jewish citizens is condemned and the government at Washington is called upon to bring about a cessation of these cruel persecutions. In closing, the administration of Gov. Hill was endorsed and his faithful dis eharge of its responsibility is declared to justify the continuance of the trust imposed in him by the democratic party. The resolutions were adopted with oheers. The following was also passed. Resolved, That this convention views with gratification the growing friendly feel ing towards the democratic party of our colored citizens of this state, and they are welcomed to our ranks with the assur ance that within our party discrimination on account of race or color is discounte nanced. The motion was made t9 proceed with nominations and Mayor Porter nominated Roswell P. Flower for governor. The nom ination was seconded, on behalf of Tam many, by Col. Fellows. Bourke Cochran also seconded the nomination of Flower. Thos. Dewitt, of Kings, placed Alfred C. Chapin in nomination for governor. Flower was nominated on the first ballot. Flower. i84; Chapin, 43. Charles P. Adams, of Kings, chairman of theldelegation, made the nomination unan imous, amid the wildest scenes. Soon after two o'clock the committee sent to conduct Dr. Flower entered the hall and while every man stood on his chair and shouted, the candidate advanced to the platform with smiles on his face. When the shouts of applause died away somewhat so that Flower could be heard, he spoke briefly saying that he was willing to have "the light turned on" his record. He ao cepted the nomination and promised to lead the party to victory. The applause that followed ilowers' address did not die away, but was merged into, growing shouts mingled with the name of "Sheehan." Sheehan mounted to the platform, where Flower advanced with outstretched hands to mest him in fall view of the convention. The leaders of the ticket then shook hands and engaged in a few words of greeting. Sheehan then addressed the convention. The ticket was completed as follows: Lieutenant governor, William F. Sheehan; secretary of state, Frank Rioce comptroller, Frank Campbell; treasurer, Elliot F. Dan forth; attorney general Simon Rosendale; sarveyor and engineer, Martin Schenck, Jr. ' he new state committee convened after the adjournment of the convention. Ed ward Murphy, Jr., of T'roy, was re-elected permanent chairman. Flower to-night for warded the secretary of state his resignan tion as member of congress. His successor will be elected in November. Roswell Pettibone Flower was born in Watertown, N. Y., Aug. 7, 1831, and at his father's death, in 1848, the family was poo . Itse left the village school when 14 to become a clerk in a tore at $5 a month. Private study durng spare hours enabled him to graduate at the High School in 1851. The two following years he worked as a laborer in a brickyard, and in 1858 became clerk of the Watertown postoilice, In 18m) Mr. Flower went into business far himself as a jeweler, which he continued for ten years with marked success. On the death of his rotheort-lnlw, Hasry Keep, the railway ns"nate, in 189, the care of his estate of ,u000,o00 devolved upon Mr. Flower and osenltated his removal to New York Oity, where he soon rose to eminence as a Snan. tier. Mr. Flower has served in conares everal terms with distinction and is chtir ;an of the democratic congresional cam. sign committee.

The i r reviewed at great length the history traditions of the republican party. its pipls and its record in conaress. "The bllcan party," he said, "stands al bblwark against the movement fl the free coinage of silver without previous international agreement. cry man who believes in honest money, arid who is opposed to an inflated currency must voto with the republican party. If he does not, he is giving direct support to principles which he abhors and to business perils which he dreads." The "republiCan party has kept its pledge about the tariff." The speaker then referred to reciprocity afd protection, coupled with subsidies to .Amrican steamships, and in this he de clared the party had kept its promise to develop ecomrnerose. Touching upon the expenditures of the last congress, he said: "If the democratic party is opposed to an increase in expenditures for efficienoy and an extension of the postal service, the great government service which touches the con venience, happiness, business and homes of the people of the United States, lot them say so." Reviewing the administration of President Harrison, the speaker drew a favorable comparison between its work and that of the one preceding. He spoke of the work of the state department under Mlaine in glowing terms. Continuing he said: "We welcome honest immigrants, but the time has come to exclude the vici onus and ignorant. To that work, now ris ing to a first place among public questions. the republican party will address itself as a national party. We present to voters our works of the last two years as a pledge for the work we will do in coming time, and on this ground we ask support."

The opera honee was OroWd$ but up to that time only a alight attempt had been made to create disorder,' which the police easily suppressed. 'he polie had strict orders to take energeotic action if necessary. The "claque" eate were occupied by detectives. All approache to the corridors were occupied by p.ale, and an inspector stood by each check taken to scrutinize the incomers. Mounted republi can guards kept the streets clear, The house was crowded, there being no special difficulty in obtaining admuison. The overture was attended by profound silence, the audience breaking into rapturous ape plause at the conclusion. The opera was admirably mounted and finely rendered. Vandyke and other artists were recalled several times and applauded to the echo. There was a noisy demonstration outside of the opera house during the performance. A band of students sang the "Marseillause," the crowd responding with cries of "Vive Is France," "A bas Wagner." Portions of the mob continually made rushee againet the police cordon, and the police, whenever these incursions became formidable, assumed the offensive and charged the mob, which would take to ilight in hot haste.
