THE IRRIGATIONISTS.
Delegates at Salt Lake Disouetthe Subject
In All Its Phases.
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.
Condemned by the Expert.
Boz.xaw, Sept. 10.- [Special.]-G. W.
Cooley, the expert from Minneapolis, for
the purpose of superviring the construction
of the dam to be built by the Mystic Lake
Dam company, has condemned the wooden
flumes that were being put in by the com
pany, and recommends' the use of four foot
iron piping; so work has been stopped, and
W.A. A4. Clark, the construeting engineer,
has returned with his force. It is thought
that perhaps nothing ,lfthes will be done
this season, as it is getting late. The iron
piping that it is contemplated to use will
cost $10,000.
Fought Nineteen Rounds.
WALLA WALLA, Wash., Sept. 16.-John

caped with but few bruises.

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.

cry man who believes in honest money,
arid who is opposed to an inflated currency

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."

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."

Twelve Miles.
The Commission Sent Out by Noble
Looked on the Indian Side
Only.
AU the Cheyennes at Fort Keogh to De
Taken at Once to the Tongue
River Agency.
Wmmworoao, Sept. 16.--It i more thsn
probable that there will be lively war of
words between the representatives of Mon
tans and South Dakota, in the next session
of the United States senate. It will all
come about over the recommendation
of the commission sent out by
Secretary Noble this summer to inves
tigate some differences between the Sionu
and the Cheyenne Indians in South Dakota
and Montana. This commission has filed
some recommendations at the interior de
partment, but their regular report will not
be submitted for several days. From
an authentico source it is learned, however,
that the commission recommends that all
the Cheyenne Indians be permanently
located upon the Tongue river reservation
in Montana. The commission also recom
mends that the reservation be enlarged
twelve miles on the west boundary, so that
the Cheyennes will have all the land needed.
This recommendation will be fought by
Col. Saunders and defended by Senator
Pettigrew upon the senate floor., It will
take a vote of the senate to decide the mat
ter.
The commission also recommends that
the boundary line between the Rosebud and
Pine Ridge agencies in South Dakota be
allowed to remain where it was fixed by the
treaty of 1888. The committee recommends
no action relative to the removal of the
Iower Brule band of Indians to the Rose
bud agency.
Back to Tongue River.
MILES CITY. Sept. 16.-[Special.]-Orders
will be received at Fort Keogh to-morrow
to transfer all the Cheyenne Indians from

P~rs, Sept. 16,-The performance Of

evening. 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.

several times and applauded to the echo.
There was a noisy demonstration outside

Is France," "A bas Wagner." Portions of

the police cordon, and the police,
whenever these incursions became
formidable, assumed the offensive and
charged the mob, which would take

the rushes and charges repeated. In some
cases the zeal of the pollee seemed to out.

RBUSSIA'S PECULIAR REQUEST.
She Wants Her Cadets to Study the Naviga
tlon of the Danube,
Loenox, Sept. 16.-The Russian govern
ment has requested the European Danube
commission to permit the Russian naval
cadets to take passage on board the vessels
belonging to the commission in order that
these young oficers may be instructed in
the pilotage of the Danube and become
familiar with the navigation of that river.
This strange request, following so close
upon the Dardanelles incident, has eanused
considerable astonishment in official cir
cles. The Danube is the chief national
highway for the commerce of a large por
tion of Europe. The request just now
would seem to indicate that oussia would
like her naval cadets to be instructed in the
navigation of the Danube above and below
Iron Gate; it would also seem that $bhs is
hint that she may not now consider bind
ing, for her volunteer ships, at least, the
clause of the treaty of 1878, sttpulati.s that
"ships of war" should not navigat the
SDalnube below Iron Gate.
