Its Views of the Penesylvania hepuba
llean Platform.
Now Yonx, Sept. A.--The Trbiheua says:
"The Re publlcan Convention of Pennsylvania, t
neeting in ehttator Don Cameron's back a
parlor, seems to have been a very small and N
select body, consisting of Mr. Camoron him- t
Ielf and two assistants, whose services were c
only called into requisition in reducing to
writing Mr. Cameron's platform. The mo- t
tlon having been made in the privacy of Mr. a
('ameron's bosom several weeks ago, it t
wsee wholly Mr. Cameron's affair. The pur
pose of the Convention appears to have bleen
to prepare the way for Mr. anmeron's re
election to the Henate. We do not see why r
he should not have been allowed to manage i
it in his own way; he had more thterest in
the result than anybody else. If he had no
objection to the Southern policy in the al
stract, or to sustaining pleasant relations
with the Administration, why should any
body else make trouble about it?"
The Times says: "The Republican Htatle
Convention at Harrisburg was suflelently I
temperate and harmonious, in view of the t
oxlstena of a better feeling between the two
sections of the party In Pennsylvania, which
it was said would break out before the Con
vention adjourned. The Republicans took a
very reasonable course on the PresIdent's l
policy and in regard to the labor troubles." I
The Her'fo says: "The convention yester
iday in Hatrrlsburg, Pa., is a noteworthy sign
of the tinres. The ticket which it nominated
is respectable, but calls for no comments,
The resohttions adopted prove that President
Hayee has won a substantial victory over the
recalcltrant element in his own party. The
platform is strong, especially In language, on
the remonetilation of sllver and making it
equally with gold a full legal tender. The
other noticeable thing in it Is its straightfor
ward denunciation of mob violence, a praise
worthy ,declaration whilh will be approved
by all the better classes of citisens, and is re
freshing in contrast to the declarations of the
demagogues of the Democratic convention.
C'When Mr. Cameron says he does not mean
to quarrel with the President he honors the
pattriotlc motives that have guided him, and
declalres that he respects honest differeners of
opinion on the Southern question; that Dom
oreatic abuse of the Electoral Commission
will not Impair the popular confidence in Mr.
Hayes' title; that riots must be suppressed
by the strong arm, ant that the old sliver
dollar must be restored to ciroulation, we
well know that he is expressing what he
believes to be the prevailing opitdon
of the party, and we feetl sure he
Is nearly right in his judgment. 8till, the
cautious and calculating utteranae of a man
like Mr. Canmeron, which dodged along
the edges of one question and wholly negleet
Ing another, are but poor substitutes for the
voice of a great State. There is no other
commonwealth in the American Union which
is not moved somewhat by strong popular
feeling, which does not speak in accents of
conviction and carry away the sympathies of
tihe people by its earnestness, its courage,
and Its aggressive temper; but Pennsylvania
alone has abandoned the privileges of plain
and honest speech for so many years that the
memory of man hardly runneth to the con
trary. It has consented to adopt as its words
those of one who says only what he believes
will pay,"

The DXIloss Promise to Reveal All.
NEw Xotul, Sept. .--A special commlittee of
the board of Aldermon, entrusted with the
investigation of the Tweed Ring frauds, held
a sess.on this afternoon. A large number of
office holders and local politicians were pres
ent.
Winm. M. Tweed Tnd counsel, John D. Town
send. were on haRnd, and the examination of
Tweed commenced. From the beglnning it
wau evident that Tweed intended to unravel
a great deal. He said that he had held a
great many offices of trust, and enumerated
them nil. He was a member of the Board of
Supervisors in 1l70. A combination was
formed whereby Democrats got possession of
the inspection of elections.
A Republican member, John R. Voorhles,
agreed to stay away from the meeting of the
supervisors and allow the Democrats to elect
whoever they pleased as inspectors. This
was the origin of the combination in the Board
of Supervisors. Mr. Voorhies was paid $2500
for absenting himself from the meeting.
The counsel for the committee then ques
tioned Tweed about his connection with other
ring matters, and the examination was ad
` Journod to next Wednesday, owing to the ill.*
ess of Tweed's counsel.
THE MINERS' STRIKE.
Interview Between a Committee of Strik
ers and the President of the Delaware
and Lackawana Railroad.
NEw YORK, Sept. 6.-A deputation of ten
striking Sernntoln miners, who canme on here
for that purpose, hadl an interview to-day
with President Sloan of the Delaware, Lacka
wanal and Western Railroad, relative to the
grievances of striking miners. Sloan ro
ceived the deputation kindly, and a short con
versation was held. Sloan told them he could
do nothing with tbem while they were on a
strike, and that ,ay amicable arrangenments
between t hem and the company would have
to be made when the amen were at work.
At the request of the deputation Sloan put
his decision in writing, and the men will re
peat to their brethren in Hyde Park, Scran
ton, the decision of the company. When
-the men quit, the company was paying, it de
-:lares, more to its employes and laborers than
it could afford. The men now demanded an
Increase of twenty-five per cent, knowing
that the company could not and would not
accede to their demands. The company was
willing at present to consider any grievances
not based upon the question of wages, and
when the price of coal would warrant it to
treat with them regarding an increase of
wages. The men having stopped work with
out just cause, the company could
not te with them until work was

O)fTtvittin, Kept. ,--The damp weather
this evening lessened In some measure the
attendance at the exposition, but there was
still a good moderate assemblage present, al
though It may be several days before all the
cases are Illed.
It ls a mistake to suppose that the exhibi

thuns.

A Rumored strike on the Pennsylvanla
Central.
Nnw YonK, Hept. .--A Ti'm's especial from
Philadelphia says that rumors are rife here
to the effect that on or about the 1t.th inst. a
general strike of the railway employes of thlis
section will take plare. lBt little attention
has been paid to threm heretofore, but Invasti
gatien shows that preparations have been
making for some time for this movement, and
the men are perfecting their organization
The causes attributed for this outbreak is that
the men on some of the Western leaned lines
of the Pennsylvania Central road have not
been treated right by the company, and that
the promises made to induce them to resume
work at the time of the late strike, have not
been kept. As a matter of principle the men
East will join in the strike to aid their breth
ren in the West, and a number of so.ret meet
jngs and mysterious gatherings of working
men have been held here lately, and the facts
are fast leaking out. They may prove un
true, but the growing discontent of the work
ingmen is painfully observed.
Blowingl up a Mine.

Hot alllh.
Niw Yonn, Kept. 0.--The malls which ar
rived this morning from France and Gor
many by the steamer Servia reached the post
office so hot that the bags could with diffi
eulty be handled. A large number of letters
had been sealed with wax, which had melted,
and the letters were badly torn and mutilated
in being separated. In some cases it was tm
possible to decipher the address.
In one bag there were about five hundred
registered letters with heavy wax seals, and
the melting of the wax had fused them Into
an Inseparable mass. By the great care of
the postoffice clerks they were able to get
most of the letters separated, and those for
other parts of the country were reinclosed
and forwarded. Those malls are supposed to
have become overheated by being carelessly
stowed too near the steamer's boilers.

The California Election.
SAN FRANCISCO, SeDt. 6.-The election yes

teeth, rode to Bodillo's ranche, where the See
Tetary way vth lug.s A Indlan boy gave the t
alarm, and thsey barely Pecavled with their
lives, cotning directly to Man Diego.
The cause of this outbreak tis asl1gned to
the intelligenee lately recolved in Lafnntera
that Villa Uranlde the expelled governor of
the munkicial dlslrict, had obtained recogli
ion from thie supreme government of the re
publie, and started from Mazatlan, with 21l0

In the matter of the drawback on sugar,
soetiotirn 01 of the Itevised Statutes directs
that there shall be allowed on all [arMtloles
wholly manufactured of materials imported, I
on which duties have been paid, when re
exported, te drawback, the full amount pahl
an each naterial, anl( no more, to be a·sc¢r
tained ttnder such regulations as shall be
presented by the Secretary of the Treasury.
The ascertainment of the proper rates of
drawback on sugar has been extremely dlfll
ctlt from the change made itn the descrip
tlon of sugar imported, the, rates of duty itl
posed by the law and the new inventions In
machinntey atned in the process of refining
sugar. These have mtade it neessary to
change the regulations for the drawback on
sugar from time to time. I am entirely Natis
fled, by careful examination of the subjoet,
especially of the reports made by the cornm
missions recently had in New York, Bloston
and Baltimore, that the rates of drawback,
fixed by the regulations of oDecember 17, 1t75,
are too high, and amount to more than tihe
duty paid by importers on the raw sugar Iused
in the maanufactories and refineries, and now
amount to a bounty and an actual 1oss to the
government of a very large sum.
The chief difficulty grown t of the elassi
licatlon of sugars by thie Duthb standard,
which fixes color rather than value as the
only element in determining the rate of
duty, while, In fact, sugarsof darker color are
often more valuable than those of lighter
color. This makes it the Interest of the pro
ducer either to give a darker color to sugar
in the process of manufacture, or to arti
ficially color the sugar after the manurfature,
with a view to obtain lower ra.es of duty Ir
drawback, This Is then fixed at so much per
htundred.
The interest of the refiner is to ue the low
est poslible grade which will give the re
quired yield of retihel sugar, and thus reetive
back from the government a greater sum
than has been paid for the importation of the
raw sugar. This difficulty adnnot be oh
viated except by a ohange of the law, and all
that the department can do is to ascertain
from time to time, as nearly as practicable,
the value paid on the raw sugar and fix the
drawback at no more and no less than this
In the intricaci.sof this duty, I am satirtled
that the following rates of drawback will do
bettor than any general rule. The govern
mont will refund the duties paid upon the
raw sugar used, to wit: In loaf and loaf
crushed, granulated and powdered, refined
sugar, stove-dried, or dried by other equally
effctive process, entirely the product of
foreign countries, duty paid sugar- Al.tsc per
pound. On refined white coffee sugar, un
dried and above No. 20 Dutch standard or
color, entirely the product of foreign coun
tries, duty paid sugar- c per per pound.
On all grades of refined coffee sugar of
No. 20, Dutch standard and below in color,
entirely the product of foreign countriec,
duty paid sugar, 2.18e per pound.
On syrup, resulting entirely from the rclln"
ing of forelgn duty paid sugar, (in, per gal
lon. The allowant s on sugar to be subject to
the dedluction of one per cent, and the allow
anCes on syrup td, the deductlon of ten per

The Vienna International Cereal Fair.
WASHINGTON, September 6.-A dispatch re
-eived at the Department of State from the
United States Secretary of Legation at
Vienna gives an account of the opening of
;he International Cereal Fair, on the 20th of a
august, in the rotunda of the vast ediflee in 1
:hich the exposition of 1873 was held in that t'
ity. The number of produce and grain mer- 0
,hants present exceeds 10,000; the amount of (
)usiness transacted surpassed all expecta- g
ions. The official report of the condition of s'
he crops throughout the empire up to the
ifteenth of August, gives assurance of an
Lbundant harvest.
The condition of the wheat crop is an- tl
l.Iai a, geoQ to very good; ry .
gary exceptle, very goodl; barley good, bet
tor than expetedl; potatoes and beans excel
lent, although the potatoes have not ap
peared in sRome districts; hope are good In
Bohemia, not godl in the other provinces, I
where the average is middlltng.
Although the Irodlum has extended its
ravages Ilto many districts, a godxl general
vlntage is expected. This abundant harvest,
coupled with the demand created by the pres
ent war and the state of European markets,
will. it is believed, enable Hungary and other
portions of the Austrian domlnions to recover

The rnl'arhI Advnuce,
Lovnor, 4ept, U,-The Dai l Nos corroe
spondent telegraphs from orgova, eptem
her 1: The Turks, as a result of tie victory at
Karasan, occupied a large mountain forming
the key of the Itasgrad position and com
manding almost ieqally the Loft and the
Kara Loin, and the Rueeian positions at Obti
ka and Clagova.
The corres'pondent says: Acting solel on
the defenselve, the Carovltch will have little
dlifficulty in keeping his present line intact,
with the possible oxception of the loss of the
G(agova position. On the other hand the
Turks are much too strong to be inactive in
the face of an inferior Russian force, and the
chances are great that the valley of K'ara Leo
will soon be the theatre of a decisive battle of
large proportions.

slans evacuated (jagova and retired to Palo

Posltlmn o t te Two Anrmes.
LoxroW S8ept. s,-The Rueessian success at
Lovatz places Osman Pasha in the awkward
lmitihon of having a hostile force on both
flanks. Either a defeat at Pievna or an at
tempted withdrawal might result in the de
structiokm of his army unless the Russians are
comnpelled to weaken their force on that side
in order to meet Mothmot's advanco from
IRasgrad. The latter snorns to places the
(.arowitch's army in a position very similar
to Osman Pasha's.
If rurish arcounts may be tnrusted, and
they seem to be confirmed in these partiuo
lars by Russian admission, the Turkish force
has crossed the Lom and reached the neigh
borhood of Obirteni, while another force has
crossed KuTra Lo.n to Pololarka. These cor.'
are understood to be operatlng saginst Bela,
but they Jeopardize the whole Russian cam
paign cast of Yantra, as well as eommunia
