New Yonx, Sept. 10.-Twenty-eight men ,employed by the direction of Mr. Hale re rsmedl search for the bodies of those who .;had perished in the Thirty-fifth street fire. They commenoed where they had left off on Baturday at the inner side, in the mass that filled the space occupied by the stable in the northeast wing of the main factory, fronting on Thirty-sixth street. This heap varied in depth from ten t, fifteen feet, and was co.m posed of bricks, charred beams, planks and twisted bars of iron. The process was neee .rlily slow. $Three bodies wore found and taken to the Morgue. The digging was con tinued until 0 o'clock, when nearly the whole area of the stable had been uncovered. It is believed that other remains will ib found. The work will he resumed this morn ing. The mass in which all the remains were found was composed principally of fine char coal and bricks. The persons whose bosies were found must have boen sufflixater by the glowing coals, for their position indicates that the men had been overcome by heat in one of the upper stories of the building and had fallen through with the floors. At the police station about forty persons called, expecting to be able to identify the re mains, but after one glance they turned hope lessly away. Mr. Oumbinger, father of John Gumbinger, one of the missing men, wan ,dered about the ruins and was present when the horrid bodies wore exhumed. Peter Mauk, brother of Nicholas Mauk, another varnisher who Is missing, was also on the ground. The examination of the remains will be made to-day to determine whether there are four bodieos instead of three, the question being raised by the fact that what are sup posed to be the remains of one man may be those of two men. The six missing men are John (lumbinger, Albert Bisch, Albert See, (leo. Greb, John Keontch and Nicholas Mauk. The California Election.

The (reenbackers will meet in Williamsport on the 19th inst. The labor convention met at Barrios' Hall. Only ten delegates or persons were present, and they determined to sit with closed floors. This evening they intend to adopt a platfor which, they say, they will give out to the newspapers. The State Labor Convention, which met here to-day, was not very largely attended; there were present only about fifty delegates, repre senting labor organizations in Philadelphia, Pittsburg, Reading. Allentown and Scranton. The convention sat with closed doors and ex cluded reporters. The session this morning was occupied in the appointment of committe i and the 1or ganization of a platform.

RWOMUIANIANM. They Will Pight, bult with the Courage of Despair. [New York Times.] The Roumanian officers are quite re signed and ready for anything. They are perfectly convinced that they have no mercy to expect from their enemy should they fail alive into his hands. All who have anything to leave have already made their wills, and the ma jority have provided themselves with poison, in order to escape by death from the cruel martyrdom which they know too well will be their fate if they are taken prisoners. They will fight bravely, we may be sure, but it will be without epthusiasm and with the cour age of despair. Perhaps one of the rea sons for their despondency arises from the cabals of some of the natives against the Surgeon General Davila, a French physician, who, during the last four and twenty years, has devoted all his energy and talents, both of which are remarkable, to the organization of military and civil medical service of the principality. Scarcely ever in America, certainly nevdr in Europe, have I seen a more complete organization of the ambulance service, whose arrange ments, even in their minutest details, are simply perfection. But Davila is a foreigner, and therefore a subject for the jealousy of the aboriginal amateurs and doctors who have volunteered themselves to the Red Cross service, and who are in constant-conflict with the regularly-constituted authorities, as not unfrequently the case with our own Sanitary Commission. 1 The chief of one ambulance at Crajova, where there are no patients, gives in his resignation because Davila wants med icines which are actually needed at the front. The honorary president of the association, Prince Ghika, sustains the civilian against the soldier, the Prince Charles backs up his officer, the jour nals of the opposition take up the cry against the "tyranny of the government officials," and almost before a single wounded man has been brought back from the field everything connected with the service of the hospitals has been thrown into such confusion that when patients do begin to arrive there will scare Sly be a surgeon to operate or a nurse to dress their injuries. THE BOSITIONm OF THE 1UM5IANs. [New York Times.] The Russians occupy a triangle, with their left at Pyrgos, their right at Nik opolis, and their extreme apex at Tir nova. The composition and disposi tion of this is as follows: The Twelfth Corps, commanded by the Czarowitz, who has his headquarters at Kadi Keni, on the right bank of the Lom, is composed of the Twelfth Di vision at Pyrgos and the Thirty-third Division at Solamik. The Thirteenth Corps, composed of the Thirty-fifth Division, has its left in communication with the thirty-third Division west of Solamik, and the First Di at Osikova.
