YELLOWSTONE DEMOCRATS, The Platform Shakes Up ,ocal Affairs sad the Crow Treaty. BILLINGo, Sept. 25.-ILSpecial.1-The dem ooratio county convention plntform, after denouncing the force bill and the hypoorisy of the republican tariff claims, declaring in favor of the free and unlimited coinage oi ailver, and endorsing the national and state democratic tickets, has the following plank on local iseues: "We denounce the shameless gerryman der of the registration districts and polling precincts of this county by the board of county commissioners, whereby they hope to gain partisan advantage at the polls. We denounce the action of the chairman of the board of county commissioners in re taining office, in violation of every princi ple of law and decency, long after he had ceased to be a citizen of Yellowstone coun ty; ahd point to this fact as alone sufficient to justify the suspicion entertained by all fair minded people that there is something rotten in the managementof county affairs. In contrast to which we point with pride to the able, economical and conscientious ad ministration of the important office of judge of the Seventh Judicial district by its present occupant, lion. Geo. 1. Mel burn." In regard to the treaty with the Crow Indisas the platform says: "We denounce as a fraud the efforts of republican wire pullers and office holders pretending to treat with the Crow Indians for the open ing to settlement of the ceded portion of the Crow Indian reservation, for the rea son that the Indians were allowed to ex clude and reserve nearly all desirable agri enltural pertions of said ceded portion from being thrown open, leaving nothing to attract actual settlers." The following resolution in regard to Jndge Campbell was unanimously adopted: "Resolved, That the thanks of the demo crats of Yellowstone county are due and are hereby tendered to Judge Andrew Campbell, now that he has announced that on acount of want of physical strength he has withdrawn from active participation in politics, for his earnest, valuable and pa. triotie labors in the advancement of the principles of our party and in the support of the best interests of our country." SOME BIG IMPRtOVEMENTS. They Are Contemplaled by the Northers Pacitie in Montana. MI.souLa, Sept. 25.--[Special,]-Presi dent Oakes and General Manager Mellen, of the Northern Paciflo railroad, passed through Missoula to-day on their special, and were accompanied by Dr. J. Fulton, the oculist of the road, and N. C. Thall. They were joined here by General Traffic Manager J. M. Hannaford, who has been here for the past two days. Mr. Hanna ford stated that the traffo on the road was very heavy at present and that at the eaet era end of the line they were scarcely able to get sunficient cars to handle the busi nesse, and that the local business in Mon tana was increasing rapidly. Extensive improvements were in contemplation by the management, he said. These would con sist in cutting down grades, putting in heavier steel rails, replacing pine ties by oak ties, filling in where wooden trestles are now used, and building stone culverts; in fact, making the Northern Paeifio track and roadbed one of the best west of the Mississippi. From other sources it was learned that T. L. Greenough, contractor for the Northern Pacitlf, will out 200 teams to work to-morrow between Miesoula and the top of the hill of Evaro. They will fill in with gravel and rock where the track now crosses dry ravines, and put in stone onlverts. This is the commencement of extensive improvements on the Montana division.

JUST BEFOoRE THE SERMON. Dr. Dixon Opens on Cholers, reoltile and lteamship Cempnales, Nsw Yona. Sept. ~I.--Rev. Dr. Thomse Dixon, before his serman to-day, spoke of the lesson America should learn from the appearanse of the eholeri. He said ia perti 'The sudden appearanoe of Aseatie oholera earries with it a startling message. We have been taught that the pot house of pol ties is a poor training for health ofleers. Bay what we will about the effelenoy of our quarantine, its methods have been a Jum ble of stupidity and brutality, with scarcely a trace of executive abilitj. The conduct of this buasines has not only been a dis grae to the Amerlean nation, but a stigma on the history of the Anglo-Saxon rae. And for this we must thank our pot house politicians, whoe life principle is 'To the victor belongs the spoils. We have learned there are great steamship companies who do not hesitate to sell the health of sixty two millions of people in America. For the price of the steerage passage of a few hundred poverty stricken refugees, every city in America is at the mercy of New York. Let our brethren in other eities remember this when they apologize for and exuose the viilanies of Tammany hall. Tammany hall is not simply a leeal diagrace; it may be a national scourge. What is the sense in moving heaven and earth to quarantmne a few vietims of pest. ridden irambugR, and at the same time open wide our gates to John Most and Bergman. Why buy an island to quaran tine 500 healthy Amerlcan citizens, and open the gates to thousands of the kind who formed the mob at Haymarket square; who delivered New Orleans to the reign of sasassins; who called forth an army in Pennsylvania and New York to restore or der. Does a thinking man doubt, in view of resent events, that these steamship eom panies are in collusion with prisons and poorhouses of Enrope?" BANDITS OF CHILI. Two of a Band of Murderers Hardly More Than Boys. VALPARAIso, Kept. 25.-A wholesale mas sacre was committed at a spot called Lun nagnima, in the department of Tragnin. A bullock cart was returning to this town with a family consisting of Rosario Castro, Leaturo and Hortensia Jara, son and daugh ter of the first named, and Theodore Marilo, when they were stopped at the place men tioned by four bandits, one of whom de manded a light from Leaturo Jara. The latter took out a box of matches and was in the act or passing it to the bandit, when he reeived a blow on the head from a bludgeon, which fractured his skull and killed him on the spot. The other bandits followed up the attack and with bludgeons killed Rosario Castro and Hortensia Jars. Marilo was also severely injured, but he contrived to escape to the bush. The object of the crime was to obtain possession of the belongings, of trifling value, of the unfor tunate victims. the murderers have been captured and have confessed their guilt. One of them is only seventeen years old and another twenty. To Cut Hussias Off. ST. PETEIRBUino, Sept. 25.-The Novosti publishes an article in regard to the mis sion headed by Gen. Roberts to the ameer of Afghanistan.

QUAY IS NOW SULKING, The Pennsylvanian Not Taking Any Part in the Republican Campaign. He Has Quite a Fight on His Hands to Seoure Re Election. The Chances Are eaid to Be Very Much Agealnst His Return to the United States Besate. 3s.nvrn Pa., Sept. 24.-The neighbore and political friends of United States Sena tor M. ti. Quay are beginning to wonder hdw soon he intends to take hold in the caminpaign and when he proposes to take up his canvass for the United States senator ship, Quay's apathy since the Minneapo lie convention is the subject of frequent remark. There has not been a national eampaign since the war in which he has shown so little interest. So astute a poli tician as United States Senator Chandler, of New Hampshire, once remarked that, viewed purely from a political standpoint. Senator Quay was the most remarkable man that he ever knew. "He can do as much as twenty ordinary men," said Chan ltr, "and is better than five extraordinary men." Chandler. of course, referred merely to Quay's political possibilities and oapabilities. This is the sort of a politician Harrison and his friends are getting along without this trip, but it is not their fault. It is Quay's. He is disensted with the whole Harrison out fit. He has fought Harrison through two national conventions and partly through one administration, and to cap the climax, packed himself off to Florida in the midst of a national campaign, thus emphasizing his contempt for the Montana novice who has been sharged with the destinies of the party. Quay's discomfiture is complete and his power fast waning. There is even a possibility of his prestigefading altogether, of a suadden. With Cleveland in the White house for the next four years Quay would be at sea; with Harrison there he would be but little better off, even though a United States senator. But it is no means certain that he will be returned to the senate. Though he has a considerable number of legislative eandidates pledged to his sup port, he has still to win his fight and to overcome a respectable and formidable op position. The outcome no man can fore tell. Quay's political record of the past few years has not been an unbroken line of successes, but rather a series of reverses, tempered by the financial possibilities of his high offices. In the national conven tions of 1888 and 1892 he led the majority of sbtr.Pennsylvania republican delegation into the support of losing aspirants for the presidency-first Sherman and then Blaine, though he had no use for either of these distinguished statesmen. In 1888, on the round-up, he swung his people to Harri son, and in 1892 to McKinley, while in both conventions he and his followers esu a humiliating figure. In 1890 he nominated George W. Delasmater for governor and lost the state to the republicans, along with three or four congressional districts in which his followers had been perniciously active. In 1891 he put ap two men for state treasurer and auditor general, both of whom were defeated in convention. In 1892 he attempted to secure the nomination for supreme judge for Judge John J. Hen derson, before whom Delamater had been acquitted of embezzlement, but the party refused to earry this dead weight and chose John F. Dean for the office. Aside from these reverses, President Harrison has studiously ignored Quay in the distribu tion of patronage, passing him in the se lection of an associate justice of the su preme court of the United States, a judge of the United States circuit court, two juddes of the United States district court, a collector of internal revenue and other officas of less importance. Senator Quay, fearing public opinion, swallowed his chagrin as far as the judges were concerned, but drew the line on the revenue collectorship, and for almoset half a year lsa stood in tne way or sue conurma tion of Harrison's choice. The western Pennsylvania distriot, for which Harrison named George W. Miller for collector, is made up of twenty-six counties, or nearly half the state, and Quay realizes that with deputies in each of these counties appointed by an unfriendly collector a most impor tant influence might be brought to bear upon the coming contest for the United States senate. This he is determined to prevent. He expressly agreed with his rival, C. L. Magee. with whom he was then on friendly terms, that after the Minneap olis convention he would consent to the confirmation of Miller. He feared that if he did so before the convention Miller would use the office to aid in the selection of national delegates favorable to the renomination or Harrison. But the national convention not only resulted in the utter rout of Quay and his followers; it went further. It elevated Magee to a po sition of national leadership that Quay did not like. He therefore deliberately refused to keep his agreement with regard to Mil ler's confirmation, apparently tearing dis aster to his hones of re-election to the sen ate, and Miller remains" hung up." There is a possibility that Quay's double dealing in this matter, taken in connection with his attitude toward the presidential ticket, may cost him the senatorship. It is worthy of note at this point to say that Quay has no more use for Whitelaw Reid than he has for Benjamin Harrison. Quay has always felt dissatisfied with Reid for his conduct during the Harrison cam paign of 18S8. He claims that the Tribune was not only cold in its support of the ticket, but that, by the direction of Reid, it studiously ignored the national commit tee, of which Quay was the prime spirit. Quay supposed this was on personal grounds. Whatever the cause, Quay was placed in the position of having to rely almost entirely upon the newly-born Press as a committee organ, the Tribune going to the length to exclude from its columns in terviews and other matter which it was Quay's particular desire to have printed. It will be seen, therefore, that Quay is at odds all around. lie is unfriendly to Harrison and Reid, at war with Magee, the i resl dent's Pennsylvania mainstay, and out of joint with Wanamaker, Miller and Secre. tary Charles Foster. In this position toward the chief figures in the national campaign, it is interesting to inquire about his affairs nearer home. He is not con sidered at all in Pennsylvania in connection with the outcome of the presidential issue, but entirely as regards the choice for sena tor to be made by the general assembly next January. At Philadelphia the Press, the foremost organ of eastern Peuusylvauia republlcan ism, is opposing him with more bitterness than has ever oharacterized its treatment of the democracy. At Pittsburg theTimes, the leader of republican thought and opin ion in western Pennsylvania, i coummltted to the cause of Congressman John I)alzell for the senate. There are a number of journals throughout the state that are only too glad to follow the footsteps of the more influential papers. The spectacle pre sented by Senator Cameron since his re eletion loi ifi.1 and the conduct of Quay in p rty co nails and poeleis aine his Iall rat with the preaidsant, bhas created a senti neat that is daily growing in favor of a better representation than Pennsylvania has had in the upper house of eonire.s the -rat twenty years. There are nmdtoations hat this msentment will be organized and that it will have as its object anything to beat Quay. P.tYING OUT THUE AT. Carter Jays Plans to Make the Tariff aroens Contrlbute. New Yong, Sept. 2.--The republicans have determined upon an "aggressive" campaign for Pennsylvania. They are going to fight hard to carry the state for Harrison. It's a curious bit of intelligence, but it isn't half as curious when one comes to analize it. 'The Manufacturers' club of Philadelphia is made up of all, or nearly all, of the manufacturers of that city who are benefited by the McKinley tariff law. Postmaster General John Wanamaker is one of the founders and organizers of this Manufacturers' club. Thomas Dolan is president of the club and Hamilton Dieston st one of its conspicuous members. Dolan is very highly protected. He is a carpet man. Now, this club is in terrible fear that Pennsylvania is going democratic. At least, that is what it would like to have people think. The club has arranged a series of mass meetings-mass meetings are so very necessary in Pennsylvania this year. This series of meetings is to.be held at the Academy of Munto in Philadelphia. Gov. McKinley spoke on Friday evening. Sept. 21; SBere tary Tracy will speak on Saturday evening, Oct. 8; Senator Sherman on Saturday even ing. Oct. 22, and Senator Frye, of Maine. on Nov. 1. It is announced that an "anter esting feature of these occasions will be a lunch given at the club house to the speak ers sftet the meetings are over." It is easy to understand that the political colored person in this woodpile will be present at the "lunches," and not at' the meetinas. The highly protected members of the Manufacturers' club are to be told at these lunches how necessary to their own interests contributions to the repub lican fund are. A prominent democrat, a gentleman who is attached to the demo cratic committee, said last night in speak ing of these meetings and lunches: "It looks as if John Wanamaker intends to raise another large sum for the campaign fund of the republican national committee, and that he will be assisted by Thomas Dolan and Hamilton Disston, as he was in 1888. It is believed that the mass meetings in -Philadelohia are a cover under which collections of large sums of money will be made. The man ufacturers of Philadelphia will be asked to meet these gentlemen face to face at the club after the meetings have ad journed, and while there made to promise large subscriptions. There can be no other good reasan for sending these distinguished republican speakers into Pennsylvania. It is generally conceded that the republican majority in Philadelphia will not be less than 25,000, and that Pennsylvania will give her electoral yote to Harrison and Reid by a majoriiy of not less than 60,000. It is becoming apparent that the repub lican managers have become frightened at the political outlook, and that it is intended to raise a large corruption fund with the view of saving the repubisoan party if pos sible. RAISING SECTIONAL ISSUES. The Campaign Methods Wthich Repub tican Leaders Are Using. Nay Yone, Sept. 25.-For some days the repunlilloans at national committee head quarters have been sending out among their official bulletins quotations from the Dur ham (N. C.) Globe, in which bitter attacks were made on the northern soldiers, and the questions which were issuae before and during the war were treated with almost the bitterness of that period. These utter ances were taken up greedily by the repub lican committee and scattered wherever the republican newspapers of this city had cir culation. In the comments which were made at republican national headquarters a disregard for truth in the preparation of a campaign document is shown. The sen timents expressed are declared by Harri son's committee to be the common opinion of southern democrats. They are said to be the utterances of the friends of Cleve land and Stevenson, and among those who did not know something of the facts in the case, they are calculated to have the effect of raising the old-time sectional feeling. One statement sent out by the republican committee was to the effect that the senti ments uttered in the Durham paper were the most effective campaign material which could be devised. There are some evidences that this sort of campaigning on the part of the republicans will be investigated. Re ports have come to this city that the demo cratic stats league of clubs of North Caro lina has passed strong resolutions, in which it declares that the sentiments atttibuted to the southern democrats through this ar ticle represent no portion of those demo crate. They represent nobody except, per haps, the man wrote the article. Informa tion has also been received that the writer of the article is a republican. but in several other cases. There was some evidenc that in some cases the men who went abot attempting to stir up feeling by raising the old sectional question were the direct agents of the iepublican party lead ALL D)ANGER PAST. SNw Cae of Cholera and Not Even a suspect. QUARANTTEs, N. Y., Sept. 25.-The cholera outlook grows more satisfactory every day. There are no new cases and not even a suse pect since Thursday last. All the patients are out of danger and it looks as though the last name of any victim of the disease has been recorded. The lBohemia and the Scandia are now at Lower Quarantine and will remain there some time. Their cabin passengers, now aboard the Nw Hampshire, will be released to morrow. The steerage people on the SMean dia will me oved to the New lHampshire Tuesday and those of the Bohemia will sub sequently follow them to Hoffman island. uThe Stigtonu has been turned into a hospital and about forty people are on board of her, though some have not got the dsease.

HERE'S A HOW-GO-YOU-D0 Bank Directors Said to Be Ineligible to Act as Presidential Electors. Chairmen Harrity and Carter Ad vise Them to Get Off the Tickets. The Disbarment May Seat the Prohibitlon Candidate for Governor of the State of Vermont. New Yonx, Sept. 25.-Bradley B, Smalley, member of the demooratio national com mittee, and eandidate for governor of Ver mont, announced to-night that be had made a discovery which., if the election is contested, will give to Allen, the probibi tiontist candidate, the office of governer of Vermont. Smalley said that while Allen had received but twelve hundred or fifteen hundred votes, he was the only eandidate for the position who is eligible, if the eoncluselons of both Chairman Carter, of the republican, and Chairman Harrity, of the democratic national committee, are correct. By the advice of counsel both chairmen have written a letter advising any persons who may have been nominated for presidential electors, and who are directors in nastional banks. or who hold public offices of traust or profit, to withdraw for fear they might prove to be ineligible. "The fact is," said Smalley, "under this construction both Fuller and myself were ineligible for the office of governor of Vermont, for we are both directors in a national bank. 'The constitution of the state of Vermont Is very rigid an this point, and besides affecting Fuller's election, will also debar several members of the Vermont legislature from being sworn in." GEN. ttUSTED DEAD. An Illness Contracted at Minneapolil Carries Off a Big Politiclan. PEXKSKILL, N. Y., Sept. 25.-Gen. James W. iHusted died at 8:16 to-night. Gen. James W. Husted was born in Bedford. Westchester county, N. Y., in 1838, and was araduated from Yale college in 1886 with Chauncey M. Depew, who was always his firm polical friend. He was a prom inent member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. His political career was com menced very early. He was esuperlntendent of insurance in New York in 1860, harbor master of the port of New York in 1862-70, and state commissioner of emigration in 1870.72. He was also a major-general in the national guard of the state. Be has served in the New York assembly longer than any other member in the history of that body. and has likewiae been speaker for more terms. He ran for state treas urer in 1882 and was snowed under, along with Chas. J. Folger and B. Platt Carpen ter, who was on the ticket for lieutenant governor. He has always been prominent in national and state conventions. Gen. Husted was taken ill on his way to the republican convention in June last. Some of those aboard the train adminis tered a dose of medicine, and it is said it was an overdose, and caused the illness from which he died to-night. After the eonvention the general was broaght home to Peekskill in a special ear and taken to his residence, where he has since been hovering between life end death. To day he gradually grew worse and this even ing passed away peacefully. He was con scious until the last. ODDS ON CHRIYSALIS. Mlares Daly's Two-year-old Won at Long Odds. The sensational feature of the racing at Gravesend last Wednesday was the winning of the third race by a thirty to one shot, Chrysalis, a two-year-old from the stable of Marcus Daly. Some of the more fortun ate bettors secoured as good as 100 to one against the winner. The rail birds were pleased with the way the colt warmed up before the race and they backed him down from 100 to one to thirty to one. Japonica was the favorite at eleven to five, but fre quent pocketing of the large field kept him out of the race to the last furlong post, when Doggett pulled him out and came around. He was too late, however, as Chrysalis won by a neck from the Papoose colt, who was a neek before Japonica. The annamed colt made the run within a sixteenth of the finish. Matt Byrnea, the winner's trainer. did not bet a dollar on the colt. but Father Bill Daly. to whom Jockey Jimmy Lambley is apprenticed, gave oat the tip. A CONSUL REMOVED. He Turned out to lie a Fraud in More Ways Than One. WASRINGTON, Sept. 25.-Edmund Johnson has been removed from the consulate of Germany for false representation and fraud ulent practices as consaul Johnson was appointed in 1872, and was once removed. but afterward re-entered the service and maintained his position upon the represen tation that he was wounded in various bat ties and his health impaired. lecent sharges of fraudulent accounts, which were substantiated, led to an investigation of his millitary service, which showed he did not participate in the battles alleged, and the claim as to his wounds was entirely un founded.
