GANS & I'LEIN ONE MILE IN 2:04 FLAT, The Crowning Achievement of the Queen of the Track, Nancy Hanks. On a Regulation Track, at Terre Haute, She Lowers All Records. Doble Held the Reits and the Great Mare Did the flest-Other Spert Ing Events. Tsass Heatu, Bept. 28.-Five thousand people witnessed the record breaking event of to-day's rases. Nanoy Hanks was driven to beat her record on a regulation track, 2:07. At four o'clock, after some prelimin ary slow jogs, she appeared with Bad Doble up, accompanied by Frank Starr behind the runner Abe Lincoln. The day was fair, with a light breeze stirring. Walker gave the word and the mare started at full speed. The first quarter was made in :31. steady as a clock. Up the back stretch there was no perceptible change, though the second quarter was slower, the half being made in 1:028. That was record breaking speed for a circular track, but the sensation was to come. Along to the third quarter the peer less mare came at a clip that ma.e the earlier part of the mile seem slow, taking only :29~) to cover the distance. Starter Walker requested everybody to keep iitill tntil she flnished, but he had hardly finished speaking when her nose was even with the wire and watches stopped at 2:04 fiat. Everybody knew all records were broken, and the yell that went up was terriflo. When President Ijams got a chance to speak he said the feat just ac complished was beyond whatever had been done before in harness; the kite track is not in it. The third quarter was done at a 1:58 clip. Scarcely was this sensation over when Geo. Starr sent Monbars to beat his record, 2:14%, made at Columbus last Saturday. He was in great form and lowered the rec ord for three-year-old stallions, previously held by Axtel, trotting the mile in 2:11%.

PLATT CHOPS SOME ICE, Takes a Place in the lee Wagon and Tries to Believe He Is Warm. Sulking Republioanr Make a Frigid Pretense of Elnthusiasm for Harrison. Warner Miller, Who Fell Ountlde the Breastworks, and Was Left There by Harrisen, Bevived. NEw YonK, Sept. 28.-The first republioan mass meeting of the present presidential campaign in this city was held to-night at Cooper Union, which was packed, and many could not get in. The hall was profusely decorated with American flags and on either side of the speakers' stand were Ger man and Irish flags. The audience went wild when Thomas C. Platt, Warner Mil ler and Chauncey M. Depew came in to gather. Plait was introduced as chairman and was received with great oheering. Mr. Platt said: "Oar friend the enemy, and our enemies claiming to be friends, have manifested anxiety over the lively contest at the last national republican con vention between the friends of the different aspirants for the presidential nomination. Benjamin Harrison stands to-day as the representative of the grand old republican party, bearer of the flag of protection, reei pronity and honest money, and as snobah we pledge him a united party of unwavering loyalty and faith. Despite the frantic ef forts of Cleveland and the democratic party they cannot go into this campaign under the lying banner of tariff reform. The democratic convention at Chicago would have no such milk and water principles and substituted a tar iff for revenue only plank. On that plank the republican party joins issue with the democracy. Cleveland and Hill both agreed that protection To a cheat, but neither of them dared endorse absolute free trade. They both are com pelled to repudiate their platform and straddle the issue. The republican party believes in honest money; no juggling with or debasing of the national currency. It wants a silver dollar the equal of the gold dollar and a paper dollar backed by the honor of the republic, a representative of value as precious as silver or gold. In the darkest hour this nation ever saw, when gold was worth 250. the republican party, true to its principles, refused to comprom ise the nation's honor by paying interest on the public debt in greenbacks. What was the result? United States bonds became the gilt edge investment of the financial world, "No greater fnancial crime has been at toeupted in the country than the democratic e apor to oubstitute issues of irreeponsi. ble state banks for our present national cur rency. As to the so-called force bill, dem ooratio newspapers have persistently spread through their columns for a month past all sorts of incendiary appeals and bogus in formation regarding the force bill. There never has been a force bill which was en dorsed by the republican party. That party, however, believes in a free ballot and a fair count, and that we will have. We fought for that right from Bull Run to Appomattox, we paid for the privilege five thousands million of dollars, and over a million of precious lives, and in God's name we will fight for it as long as a single republican remains alive within the limits of the American union, be it in the state of Alabama or the state of New York." Platt closed with an admonition to re publicans to organize throughout the city. state and land and to help with all their might to get every republican voter out on election day. When the cheering which followed his address subsided Platt introduced White law Reid as the next vice-president of the United States and once more the audience broke out in enthusiastic applause. Mr. Reid spoke briefly, saying in part: "Is the country to abandon its present prosperous seourity and recklessly venture out upon the sea of chance in tariff, reoi procityv, banking, currency and ship ping which the Chicago platform proposes? That depends upon whether the republican party of the state of New York does its full duty and exerts its full strength for the next six weeks, for you will not forget that caur opponents have carried the state for a presidential candidate but three times in thirty-six years. In 1856 Fremont took away the electoral vote of New York from Buchanan by a plurality of 80,000. Never from that day to this have the democrats been able to regain those electoral votes, save when they had a popular leader of this state as their candidate, with a united ,earty behind them. Such leaders were Seymour and Tilden, and such another Cleveland was thought to be when first nominated for the presidency. Yet he car ried the state the first time by 1.047, and I the next trime was beaten by over 14,000 votes by Benjamin Harrison. On that ratin and under that same leader, what sort of a majority against him ought New York to give this time? Six weeks of indi vidual and united effort will be enough if we only base our camoaign on what we are goingt to do for ourselves. not on what we fanuoy or hope the dissentions of our enemy may do for us. P' ovidenoe helps those who help themselves." I'latt next introduced Ex-Sentor War nor Miller who uyoke at uome lenth. All differences of opinion in the republican party, he declared, ended when the blinune apolls conventiont declared iti choice. Whatever dflllcultirs have existed have passed away. He traced the achievements of the republican party at length and re futed the democratic arguients. Speaking of pensions he said the democrate just now were in favor of veterans and would con tiuoe to be until the ninth of November. 'here were loud calls for D)opew, and the great spell-binder came to the front, lie said he didn't come to-night to mike a speech, but for the purpose of convincingu skeptical demo 'ultie newslraprs that tlheore was harmolny in the republlan party. "Brothers Miller, 'latt anid I ot on upposite sides of the fence rt Min netapulie, but we are as frlsky as lanmbs in the saime lot now." T'he trouble wits our demooratic brother, said I)epew, is that tie tigurea he makees be alwryi markes in tal rance and on the wrong side.

NEw YOLK, Sept, 8.--l'he splecial com ruittee of the anti-suappers of the New York city district orgrnrizattoIn had a long conferenee with the democratic national committeemen this afternoon. At the end of the session the ati-anappers had noth inulg to say, but at headquarters it was said the discussion was as t, how to prepae a aborough organization if the demucratic noter of the tw et NW X~mrk, todether with such incidental demonstrations as might be necessary to arouse enthuslasm and stimulate them to greater activity. It was learned on the outside that the ques. tion of nominating a third tioket in the iety was the principal one discussed. The oommittemen could not be induced to glve their consent anid the anti-snappers finally agreed to consult further with their leaders. Another meeting will be held Friday. Democratio Ilarbeene. frLr,vvlr.r,re, Sent. 28.-According to oustomr every presidential year, the demo crate of central and eastern Indiana held a big barbecue here to-day.

Stev enson arrived at 11:30 and was received at the depot by marching clubsand conducted to the IHay house. The reception was prob ably the most enthusiastio he has resolved in Indiana. ENGLSI[ PRESS COMMENT. Cleveland's Letter Not aes Popular There as In America. LoNnoN, Sept. 28,-The Post, commenting on Cleveland's letter, says that it is clear that the American public are still a good way from the penitence which their Euro pean teachers in economic science have again supported with such confidence. The Standard thinks that the attempt to find the middle course in the tariff question will seriously hamper Cleveland. The hesitant obscurity of his language, says the Stand ard, shows he has difficulty in expounding his own policy. Harrison has the advent age of a sweeping confidence that will ap peal foreibly to the national prejudices and passions. On the currency question there is little to choose between the two candidates. The 'limes says that it has a less confi dent ring in it than President Harrison's on the tariff question. He is evidently afraid to assert his policy with equal cour age and clearness. His language is not easily reconciled with the broad principles laid down at Chicago. Doubtless his con tempt for the alarms of the protectionists is fully justified, but if he is right why should free trade be treated as a bogy? As to Desertions From Ships,. OTTAWA, Ont., Sept. 27.-The government received a copy of the treaty between Great Britain and the United States respecting merchant seamen deserters, ratified at Washington on the lit ultimo, and now in force. It stipulates that consuls-general, consuls or agents of either of the contract ing parties residing in the dominions, pos sessions or colonies of the other, shall have power to require from the proper authori. ties assistance provided by law for the ap prehension, recovery and restoration of seamen whoshall desert from any ship be longing to a subject or citizen of their re spective countries while in the ports of the other country; but the stipulation will not apply to subjects of the country where the desertion takes place. What Ireland Will Accept. LoNDno, Sept. 28.-In an article published to-day. iRedwond, leader of the Parnellites, declares that the Parnellites are willing to accept a statutory parliament with an exec utive responsibile to it, leaving untouched the supremacy of the imperial parliament on purely imperial questions. The Irish legislature, he says, moust control the judic iary, police and land. It will be better for Ireland to wait another generation rather than accept a scheme not granting these demands. Change of Magistrates. DUBLIN, Sept. 28.--The Irish lord chan cellor has appointed six new magistrates for the city of Cork, all of whom are Mc Carthyites. Until Morley's appointment as chief secretary of Ireland the magistrates of Ireland, with scarcely an exception, were tories. WASHINGTON NEWS. A Big Gun Nearly Complete at the Navy Yard. WAsIrnmoToN. Sept. 28.-The last jacket was yesterday slipped over the breech of the great thirteen-inch rifle at the Wash ington navy yard and the immense piece of ordnance is now nearing completion.

God Will Provide the Means, and the Faithful Will Pray for It. Parochial Schools Declared to lie of Vital Importance to the Future of the Ch urh. NeWAnn:, N. J., Sept. 29.-"We approve what St. Peter approved; we recommend what he recommends; we condemn what he condemns, and tolerate what he tolerates," were doeclarations in the resolutions speak ing of the school question at the closing meeting of the German Catholio convention to-night. Caledonia Park hall was crowded to its utmost capacity. Over six thousand persons were there. "Star Spangled Banner" was song in German by 400 parocial children. 'Ihen the resolu tions were read by Itev. M. Fuerber, of ht. Louis. 'Ihey declare in part: "With proverbial gratitude we hear the energetic utterances of many of our right reverend bishops, who, with great emphasis, demand the establishing and maintaining of parochial schools. We protest most em phatically against any attempt on the part of the state to infringe by any law the right of education; therefore, we call nupon all our Catholic fellow eitizens to give their votes only to such candidates who take the correct stand on the echool question. With the fullest submission to the desires of our holy church, the supreme pontiff and the bishops placed over ns we not only renounce all secret societies strictly for. bidden under the penalty of ezoommunica tion, but also those concerning which our ecclesiastical superiors have declared they endanger good morals or the Catholic re ligion. We wish to direct you to such so cietles as are fully approved by our ecoles iastical superiors." The resolutions hail with delight the ap proaching fiftieth anniversary of the con secration of the pope as a bishop, and ex tent to him assuranoe of deepest reverence, perfect obedience, and unwavering al legiance. 'I hey renew the demand of the last congress for the full freedom and independence of the holy see by the restoration of the temporal sovereignty of the pope. "As free American oitizens,' says the declaration, "we will not tolerate any interference with the free expression of our views on this extremely important church matter. The false supposition that it is inopportune to discuss openly the Roman question in our country can only be explained as a pitiable deception or want of courage in showing fearlessly our truly Catholic convictions. Rome, as the natural seat of the papayor, as the metrop. ohs of the Catholic world, belongs to the popes, who, moreover usneed the rights of sovereignty acquired in justice and sealed by solemn contracts for the welfare of Italy. Europe, and the whole world, as the benefactors of mankind. "With confidence, we leave it to Divine Providence by what means the restoration of papal independence shall be brought about by secular power, and in the mean time will never cease to courageously sus tain the holy father." The resolutions dwell on the 400th anni versary of American discovery, eulogizing Columbus as a Catholic whose mission above all was to secure to uncivilized na tions the blessings of the gospel. Sincere thanks and most cordial approval are ten dered to St. Raphael's society, because of its great good wrought for the temporal and spiritual welfare of Catholic immigrants. They deeply regret that vile attempts have been made to attribute political motives to its founders, leaders and friends, and indignantly reject in particular insinuations and accusations In which the name of a most worthy Catholic and a member of the German center is attacked and is still abused in order to arouse pre judice against brethren of the same faith and excite unwholesome nationalism. The accusations and attacks hurled at St. Ra phael's society by Catholic prelates, priests and laymen; at the German-American priest enverern, in fact at German Cath. olics generally, condemn themselves by their evident absurdity and falseness, es pecially when hidden under the cover of patriotism, or even devotion to the holy see."
