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
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has withdrawn from active participation in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."
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

Two of a Band of Murderers Hardly More

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

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
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.
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
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.

made a discovery which., if the election is
contested, will give to Allen, the probibi

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."

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
