New Yone, Oct. 8.-The democrats of
thie city assembled in great throngs at
Cooper Union this evening to ratify the
nomination of the Saratoga convention.
Ex-President Cleveland was president of
the meeting and many other notable demo
crats were on the stage. Tumultuous
applause greeted the appearance of Mr.
Cleveland, the audience 'standing up,
waving bats, canes, and making all manner
of demonstrations of 'enthusiasm. Mr.
Cleveland finally obtained silence by waiv
inn his hand.
se acknowledged with much satisfaction
the compliment paid him by his selection
as presiding officer. He went on to talk at
some length about the issues of the cam
paign. He scored the protective tariff,
force bill, extravagance in government ex
penditures, and arbitrary actions of repub
licans in the last congress; made reference
to the determined democratic battle against
these abuses last fall and the victory which
resulted. "In the popular branch of the
next congress," said he, "the party which
lately arrogated to itlif the domination
of that body will fill hardly more than one
fourth'its seats. Democratic governors oo
oupy the enemy's strongholds in Iowa, Mae
saehusetts, Ohio, Wisconsin and Michi
gan. In Pennsylvania the election of
a democratic governor presented conclu
sive proof of republican corruption exposed
and republican dishonesty detected. But
with all these results of just and fearless
democratic policy our work is not yet com
pletely done and I want to suggest to you
that any relaxation of effort within the
lines established by the national democracy
will be a violation of the pledges we gave
the people when we invited their co-opera
tion and undertook their cause."
Mr. Cleveland said he did not forget that
we are immediately concerned with a state
campaign. It seemed to him, however,
that while national questions of the great
est import are yet unsettled, and when we
are on the eve of a national campaign in
which they must be again pressed
upon the attention of voters, the
demoeracy of the great state of New
York cannot and will not ignore them.
"If we fail to retain ascgndancy in the
Empire state, no matter upon what issne
it is 16it and no matter how much our op
ponents may seek to avoid the great and
imprtans topics, it will be claimed as a
v it of our people against the principles

Sentirely forrin 'to
mes'ahn and especially to fol
'loW thbtenemy in 'their lead entirely away
from the issues they most fear, and which
they have best of reasons to dread. Those
who act with us merely because
they approve the present position
of the national democracy and the
reforms we have undertaken, and who op
pose in national affairs the republican pol
fey and methods, and who still think the
state caqipaign we have in hand has no re
lation to the principles and policy they ap
prove are in danger of falling into grave
error. Our opponents in the pending can
vass, though now striving hard to hide their
identity in the cloud of dust raised by their
reiteration of irrelevant things, consti
tate a large factor in the party which, still
far from harmonious, seeks to perpetuate
all the wrongs and abuses of the republican
rule in national affairs. In the present
condition of affairs it is not to be supposed
that any consistent and thoughtful member
of a democratic organization can fail to see
that it is his duty to engage enthusiastically
and zealously in the support of the ticket and
platform which represent our party in this
At the conclusion of his speech, which
was frequently interrupted by applause,
Gov. Hill appeared, and turning to him
with a bow, and then to the audience,
Mr. Cleveland said he did net
think it necessary to say more, and he
could not say less, than that Gov. Hill
was there. As the governor stepped for
ward he was greeted with an outburst of
applause similar to and as prolonged as that
which greeted Cleveland. When it sub
sided he said:
'Governor Hill reaffirmed the attitude of
the party on the tariff and discussed silver
at some length. He said in part: ."Our
platform renews the party's pledges of
fidelity to sound principles of iiuance; it
reaffirms the national democratic platform
of 1884, which especially declares that we
believe in honest money, the gold and silver
coinage of the constitution, and a ciroulat
ing medium convertible into such money
without loss. That is a dbolaration in favor
of a double standard; in favor of bi
metallism; in favor of gold as well as silver,
and of silver as well as gold. It recognized
no legislative disparagement of one metal
to the enhancement of the other. It makes
them both sovereign, both legal tender for
the payment of debts. However honestly
individuals of our party may differ as to the
means of attaining perfect bi-motallism,
we are all asreed upon the disirability of at
taining that end.
"The democratic party of to-day follows
the wisdom of its great founder, Thomas
Jefferson, when he said, 'The monetary
unit must stand on both metals.' We not
only reaffirm that part of the declaration'of
the national platform oL 1884, but we go
farther and denounce t present Sherman
silver law, not merely a authorizing the
coinage of a silver. dollap whose value is
constantly fluctuating, but also as a false
pretense and artful hindrance of the re
turn to bi-metallic coinage, and as tending
only to produce a change from gold to sil
ver monometallism. Thus have we taken
impregnable ground in favor of honest
money. Those who would have run
us into collision with our fellow
democrats of other states and thereby
wreck the democratic chauces for success
in 1892, have had their plans frustrated.
Our platform unites all democrats upon the
common ground of honest bi-metallic coin
age. Whatever method of attaining per
foot bi-metalism the leaders of our party
may decide to recommend in our national
platform next year, the conditions will
then determine, and we may safely leave
the matter to their judgment. We have
not permitted differences of opinion on
that question to intrude in our councils
this fall, and thereby endanger democratio
success in this state at this critical ele.

thousand ' people witeiesed the Nelson-Al
lerton race to-day, for a purse of $10,000.
The weather was milder than yesterday, but
still was chilly enough to preelude any
hope of record-breaking time. The sky
was overcast, sad once or twice a few drops
of rain fell. The throng gave Nelson a
little the beet of the applause when the two
stallions appeared, but Alierton was favo
rite in the pools, Both horses were driven
by their owners. Allerton coquetted in the
scoring.but the animals got away in beauti
ful style nally, with Nelson eoloely hug
ging the pole a head in advance. l'he .paoe
was of the ort that kills from the start.
The quatter was made in :82, with Nelson a
length in advahse. At the half Nelson was
two lengths in advance. Allerton gained a
length at the -three-quarters, but just as
they swung into the streth went ofl his
feet for an instant, and Nelson won the
heat in 2:18 by an onen length. The crowd
went orazy over the result, but the book
makers still retained Allerton as favorite.
In the second heat the relative positions
of.the animals to the three-quarter post
was nearly a repetition of the first. Enter.
ing the home stretch Nelson swerved
toward the middle of the course and fal
tered for a moment. Allerton took advant
age of this and finished winner by a half
length, in 2:18l.
. In the third heat Nelson led as before at
the back stretch, Allerton being a halt
dozen lengths behind. Down the stretch
he pulled up even with Nelson by a phe
nomentl burst of speed. All the efforts of
Nelson's driver to increase that animal's
speed were of no avail, and Allerton easily
won by an open length in 2:15.
Both drivers held their horses in check
in the fourth. They were head by head all
the way to the home stretch, when Allerton
again showed his superiority and passed
the grand stand leading by an open length,
winning the heat and race in 2:16.
In another attack of goodnatnred insani
ty the immense crowd broke through the
fence and surrounded Allerton, literally
covering the stallion and driver with flow

POLIiCEMA GROGAN SHOTi
His Assailant Thought to Be the
Man Who Robbed Conductor
The Ofloer Attempts to Arrest a
Buspiolous - Character on
He Aueeeade In Gettitg One Revolver
Away But the -Fllow Had An
other and Used It.
Within forty-eight hours after holding up
Conductor Rithardson at the corner of
Seventh avenue and Ewing street, a man
who was'evidently the same footpad, last
.night, within a block of Tuesday night's
occurrence, and no doubt with one of the
weapons used then, shot and badly
wounded Policeman John J. Grogan. The
affair took place at Eighth avenue and
Ewing street. Following so closely on the
heels of the other, it has aroused a feeling
ii the community that will make it go hard
with the highwayman if the police succeed
in. otchling him.
Polieoman Grogan was patrolling his
ieat on the east side last night, when,
shortly after ten. o'clock, he noticed a
man standing on the north side of
Eighth avenue, just a little east of Ewing
street. The man's presence in that place,
Where it is very dark, aroused the officer's
suspicions. Grogan went toward the man,
not hurriedly enough, to frighten him
away, but leisurely. The man made no
effort to get away, but waited until the of
figer was close to him. Giving the man a
Ssearebjng look, Grogan asked, "What are
you doing here?"
The fellow made no answer. In faeet, if
he had meant to, the succession of rapid
events of the next few seconds would have
madoeany reply unnecessary. For even as
the officer spoke he saw the butt of a re
volver protruding from the man's trousers
ppcket, and grabbing the weapon,
ared to take hold of his prisoner. He
had, uufortunately, not calculated on the
s.ian having more than one gun on his per
son.; Almost at the moment the officer had
snatched away the one weapon, the man's
right hand flew up with another revolver in
it, and before Grogan had time to di aw his
,own, the would-be assasssin had fired and
'started to run. The officer felt a sharp sting
in his right breast and could feel thb warm
blood running down inside his clothing. He
pluckily drew his own revolver, and
began firing at the rapidly retreating form
of the footpad, who was cutting across
Eighth avenue in a diagonal direction
toward an alley between Rodney and Ewing
streets. The officer also attempted to fol
low, bit found his strength would not en
asle him to keep up. He fired three shots
b, orethe man disappeared into the alley
and iaer one of t.itm took effect, .ap ha
Ssaws&Te r soIw ;atagger. 'Then Grogan,
feelingthat heI was badly wounded and
must have help, started down
Eighth avenue toward Warren
street. Seeing Miss K. C. Carpenter's
boarding house at 217 Eighth avenue, lit
up, he staggered across to that place and
fell into the doorway. Charles K. Ander
son. one of the boarders, had heard the
shor, and seeing the officer coming across
the street, opened the door for him. Once
in the house, Grogan was divested of over
coat, undercoat and vest, and made as
comfortable as possible with pillows on the
hall floor, where he had fallen exhausted.
The news spread rapidly, and soon
Policemen Vanasse and Lloyd were on the
scene. A priest was sent for and Rev.
Laurence Palladino, of the Catholic
cathedral, responded at once, and kneeling
beside the woundedman began administer
ing the consolation of religion. Messengers
were also dispatched in various directions
for doctors. Dr. E. S. Kellogg was the first
to reach the house. His first glance at the
wound convinced the doctor that it would
be inadvisable to have the patient moved
that night. Miis Carpenter kindly placed
the large front bedroom on the lower floor
at the disposal of the wounded officer. He
was carried in there and placed on the bead,
where Dr. Kellogg made a more thorough
examination of the wound. He found that
the bullet had entered the right breast just
below the nipple, taken an outward and
slightly upward course through the lung,
and lodged under the shoulder blade. There
was no internal hemorrhage, and only a
slight spitting of blood. The doctor said he
would make no attempt to out the ball out
from under the shoulder blade for awhile,
as it was doing no harm there, and in the
officer's exhausted opndition it would be
best to keen him as quiet as possible, and
allow the wound to clog up. He thought
Grogan's chanaes of recovery were favor
able, unless something unforseen should
happen. Mrs. Grogan was brought to the
place in a carriage, and after being assured
by the doctor that her husband was not
necessarily fatally hurt, was allowed to go
to his bedside.
When the first excaitement or tle aaair
was over, the policeman who had been suenm
moned made a hasty search in the loeality
of the shooting, including the alley into
which the supposed highwayman had gone.
No trace of him could be found. There was
no organized search of the yards and other
places into which it was likely the man
would have crawled had he been
badly wounded as Grogan thinks he
was. This was due to the fact that there
was no one in authority around to direct
things, and the policemen who were there
had to undertake the search each after in
the way that occurred best to him. That
the fellow who did the shooting is still in
town there appears to be no doubt, es
pecially it he was hit by one of Grogan's
shots. That he is the same man
that held up Conductor Richardson on
Tuesday night none of the policemen
doubted after hearing Grogn's description
of him. Richardson soribed his high
wayman as being shout and thick-act and
dressed in dark clothes and a black slouch
hat. He had two guns. The man who shot
Grogan was also short and thick.set, and
was dressed in dark clothes and slouch hat.
He also had two guns. The man who
stopped Richardson had a small moustache
though in the darkness the conductor
could not tell much of its color. Grogan's
assailant had a small dark moustache.
The highwayman was no doubt laying for
a victim to hold up when Policeman Gro
gan ran across him. Home one suggested
that he might even have been waiting for
Conductor Richardson to relieve
the conductor of that roll of bills
which he said the robber had overlooked
Tuesday night. Anyway, if the oftlicer had
not happened along when he did, it is oos
sible that a gentleman who was visiting
at Miss Carpenter's would have fallen into
the robber's clutches, as he was preparing
to leave the house about the time theehots
Charlea K. Anderson, who boards at Miss
Carpenter's, says he was rirepared to go to
bed when lie heard a pistol shot on Eighth
avenue not far from the house. H.e has a
front room. Throwing up the window he
saw three flashes and heard three more re
Vorts from the direction of the corner of
wlug street. These were the shots fired
by Policeman Grogan. A few moments
later he saw Grogan coming across the street.
'The oflcerexelaimed, "I'm shot," and made
toward the house. Mr. Anderson hastily
put on a few olothes and ran down stairs
and opened the door uast in time to admit
the wounded officer, who staggered up the
tConnlly passenger engineer on the
Northern Peofie, stood on Seventh avenue
near the steam motor track in front of the
boarding house waiting for a motor when
the shots were bred. From where he stood
be could not see the highwayman ad he ran
from the corner where Grogan was
shot, up the dark alley run
ning in the center of the block
between Rodney and Ewing south of
Seventh avenue. Connelly heard the patter
of Grogan's feet as he started west on the
avenue toward him. As the wounded of
feer crossed the avenue toward the board
ing house the engineer asked what was the
matter. Grogan said, "I'm shot," and ran
up the steps falling in the hallway.
Offieer Grogan has been on the force un
der Mayors Fuller, Bradford and Klein
schmidt, and is regarded as a brave and
trusty olicer. He has a family living on
Hillsdale avenue, consisting of a wife and
several children. At an early hour this
morning Dr. Kellogg, who had jast left the
wounded man, said he was resting comfort.
ably, and great hopes were entertained of
his pulling through.
All suspicious characters, or strangers
who cannot give a good account of them
selves, are likely to find their way to the
city jail in the next few days, especially if
they bear any resemblance to the descrip
tion furnished of Grogan's assailant.
Policeman Flynn arrested one who was
about to board a Northern Pacific train
about one o'clock this morning. He gave
the name of H. It. Holbrook. but does not
answer the description of the man wanted.
The revolver which Grogan captured from
his assailant is a murderous looking weap
on, of the style known as the "frontier
bulldog." It is forty-four calibre, and
'hb first news of the affsbr was brought
down town by Iral Graina porter of the
Grand Central hotel. He was driv
ing on Ewing street and had just
reached Eighth avenue as the shoot
ing occurred. His horse became
frightened at the shots and reared up and
plunged around. When he got the animal
quieted the shooting was over and the offi
cer on the way to the boarding house.
Graif drove rapidly down town and gave
the news to the police, besides telephoning

The Great Apostle of High Taxes Is Alo
Stoutly Antagonlstle to the
ADA, O., Oct. 8.-For weeks the joint de
bate between Goy. Campbell and Major
McKinley has been referred to as an Im
pending "battle of the giants," and the
discussion to-day fully demonstrated that
they are indeed peerless as exponents of
high and low tariff respectively. The little
town was smothered in bunting and deco
rations. People and marching clubs came
from all over the state, and while much
enthusiasm was displayed, it was in friendly
rivalry. MoKinley American tin badges
were offset by Campbell quoting "Amer
lean wool 84 cents on ao
count of McKinley bill." The
union meeting was held in the amphitelh
tre on the fair grounds. Great l
displayed in the decorations. The tr
was called into requisition, and as
distinguished leaders appeared in.si
governor's salute was fired. It w*o' 145
when the meeting was called to prder by
Rev. Campbell, the Presbyteriani minister,
and at that time fully 7,000 people were on
the grounds. The cleriopl gentleman intro
duced the two presiding officers of the
meeting. Mr. Vanfleet for the democrats
and Mr. Howe for the republicans. Chair
man Vanfleet, democratic presiding officer,
made a brief speech of congratulation'to
everybody and announced that Gov. Camp.
bell had gained the privilege of opening
and closing by the casting of lots. Van
fleet made sliubt bull by alluding inad
vertently to Major McKinioy as "Gov.
McKinley," and the republicans chsered
lustily while the chairman blushed in con
fusion. Gov. Campbell, after being intro
duced as one of Ohio's greatest governor.
launched into the debate. His opening.
speech was listened to with great interest
by both parties. He regretted, he said, that
heo had not time to properly present the in.
I dictment of that overgrown monster, which
is masquerading in the garb of protection,.
subsists on wage-workers and agrioulturists.
[Applause.] Yearly farming is growing
more unprofitable and our commerce is

a Lincoln when he said: "As the e1i0 of
1war corporations have been enthrone, an
era of high prices will follow; the mno. u
power will endeavor to prolong its reig'u.t
til all wealth is aggregated in the hen e4e

cited the utterance of republIcan Congress
man Butterworth. who said, in congress,
he could, upon the fingers of his hands,
count the men who had added more to their
wealth in the last ten years than had been
added to the wealth of all agriculturists in
any state of the union. [Great democratic
applause.i Ho quoted from an eastern
paper the statement that when Egypt
went down two per cent. of her
people owned 97 per cent. of
her wealth; when Persia went down
olte per cent of her population owned the
land; when Rome went down 1,800 men
owned all the known world. In 1850, in
this country, capitalists owned 373) per
cent of her wealth. To-day they own more
than twice that amount, yet he who goes
before the people and points to these facts
is sneared at as a calamity croaker.
He quoted a Rain of thirty -seven In tte
mercantile failures in the United Statea for
nine months of this year, compared with the
same period last. This is under the Mc
Kinley bill. Where is that boom McKin
ley predicted if his bill passed? Were 'it
not for the abundant crops these
failures would be a great deal
worse than they are. The governor went
on to analize the question of the tariff be
ing a tax on the consumer presenting faures
to show that it was. Now," said he
"when genuine reciprocity comes in we will
have, not a little one-sided reciprocity with
the little countries of South America, but
substantial free trade with England, France
and the world." [Applause.]
There were manufactured in this country
last year $5,500,00,000 worth of goods. If
the tariff on dutiable goods is 60 per cent,
it is fair to presume, taking protected and
unprotected industries together,thatat least
one-third of that sum is paid in lieu at
duties to manufacturers at home upon
American product. It is said that this is
done for the upbuilding and maintenance
of manufacturers. How long, oh, Lord,
how lone shall this upbuilding go on?
Governor Campbell read a letter hY Mr.'
Blaine in 1884 in which Mr. Blaine said that
it is a fact that the coarser descriptions of:
cottons and cotton vroduct. boots and
shoes, ordinary household flnitner.
harness for draft animals, agrilulturel
implements of all kind., doors, saSo'
as and blinds, looke, bolts and hingeq,
silverware, platedware, woodeaware.
ordinary paper and paper hanging, coin
mon vehicles, ordinary window glassa ap
glassware, rubber goods, coal, keroseane
white lead, lead pipe, and articles in whick
lead is a chief component, can be and are
produced as cheaply in the United Stat s
as in any part of the world. (Applause.)
In twenty-five years since the war we
have doubled taxation in tariff. Who is
benefitted by It? What have farmers of
it? (A voice: ("ltazzle dazzle.") Govry
Campbell read from the statistics of itbm
republican secretary of the Ohio board
of equalization, showing that, in tenyears,
the appraised value of farm land has ds
preciated $98,000,000. The last census"
shows that in ten years the state of OhbI
bes increased in wealth $248,000,000, Howr
much have the farmers gotten out of thatP
Gov. Campbell asserted as a fact that not:
one farmer in a thousand in Ohio is as well.;
off to-day as in 1880. ("Right, that's ,
fact," shouted many voices.) I want Major"
McKinley, when he replies, to tell the auGe
ience where these men are who haveslt
better wages under his tariff. There L i. i
