a delegation of journalists was ad
mitted to congratulate him, but he
managed to thank them warmly, add
ing: "Gentlemen, I belong to you. Dls-
: tuss me, but never forget France and
the republic while doing so."
The socialist demonstration after the
Decisive vote, revealed such bitterness

The Old Gelding's Throat Is Paralyzed
A Suburban Winnet.
New Y6rk, June 27. There is gloom
in M. F. Dwyor's stables to-day, for
Raceland is dying. The famous old
gelding is beyond the aid of the veterin
ary, and will probably never leave the
box until he is carried out to be what he
has so long been called, Old Bones. His
throat is paralyzed, and he has also
spinal trouble. Dr. Shepherd said this
morning that the veteran racer could
live only a few days at the outside.
Few American horses have been so
widely known as Raceland. He has
been for seasons an essential factor in
most of the 'racing events hear New
Raceland was by Imp. Billet out of
Calomel. He was eight years old.
When the late August Belmont's stable
was sold the gelding became the prop
erty of M. "F;. Dwyer, for whom he
earned much money and glory. Last
year, for instance, out of thirty-four
starts Raceland won eighteen times,
came in second ten times and got third
money twice Old Bones won the;prize
f6r which American horsemen strive,
the Suburban handicap, in 1889. He
captured the New York Jockey clnb
handicap in the same year. Two years
before he won the Great Eastern handi
cap. ' ",'.:;' ' '
It became pretty evident this season
that Raceland's days of equine glory
were about over. He started only once
and then showed clearly that he was
out of all condition.'

Strnnahan rapped for order. The or
house was prettily decorated with Hugs

temporary chairman. In the platform
which was adopted Is tho following:
Wo declare that the oouslstvtit, cour
ageous and tbe lufexlblo dotcrminutlon
of a democrat lo president to maintain
the credit of the government terminated
a financial panlo, restored confidence
and composed lUturbod vultifs. We
are opposed to (he reckless inflation of
the currency t 40 per capita demand
ed by the republican state conventions
of 1803 and 1801; and while wo favor
the circulation of constitutional money,
gold am' silver at a parity of value, wo
are unaltobly opposed to any debase
ment of the currency or to the depre
ciation of any dollur issued by the gov
ernment to the people.
We heartily approve tho upright and
sagacious administration of President
Cleveland, which has fulfilled tho
pledges of his party and has satisfied
the expectation of the people.
We deplore all differences between
employer and employe, and we depre
cate the resort to( force for the settle
ment of questions that should be deter
mined by peaceful arbitrament. We
recognise the right of every citizen to
be protected in free enjoyment of his
property and of the privilege to work
when, for whom and at what wages he
will. It is the duty of the state to main
tain for him that right. The highways
ot the commonwealth should be open to
all who lawfully traverse them and the
path to proper employment should not
be obstructed by any unauthorized
None the less we condemn the lnsln
cerity and Inconsistency of those who
clamor loudly for protection to Ameri
can industries and yet seek.every occa
sion and lose no opportunity to sup
plant it with cheap imported pauper la
bor. We denounce the hypocrite who
pretends seal for the improvement of
the condition of tbe American working
men and yetedlsplaces and evicts them
for aliens ignorant of our laws and for
eign to our institutions. We stand for
the rigidtntorcement of all the laws of,!
the commonwealtn, enacted to protect
the Jives and preserve the health of
wage-earners and to secure for them
the prompt and regular payment of
their wages in money of undiminished

trine of equal rights and religious liber
ty; we are opposed to all organizations
which strike at freedom of conscience;
and we declare that no party can Justly
be deemed national, constitutional or In
accordance with American principles
which is animated by a spirit of polit
ical . proscription or religious Intoler
ance. The following was also submitted and
"The convention sincerely deplores
the death of the president of the French
republic and desires to emphasize Its
sympathy with the endeavor to perpet

lands, and It hereby condemns all tend

POSTPONED FRESHMAN RACE
tux rnr t a via it hacx postpoxeb
UXIML It A.M. THIS MOHXIXa.
Not Much of m Crowd at tho Rlnr
There Wm a lllifh Wind end a Nasty
Ben Tho Three trcws-Tho Yale Var
New Loudon, Juno 27. Xover, for
many years, has so lit t lo Interest been
taken In the races at Now London.
There seems to be a general impression
that Yale has everything her own way,
and so but few spectators, outside of
tho regular college and yachting
crowds, arc present. Now Londoners
are hoping to see a largor crowd in tbe
city tomorrow morning, und also wish
for vlttorv for tho crimson, in their
wurch for tho eluslvo oollvge green
back. The postponement of the fresh
men raee until 11 o'clock to-morrow
morning will probably bring the crowd
down In tho morning to stay all day,
and this will mean many additional
shekels to tho Xew London tradesmen.
There was not much ot a crowd in the
river to see the freshman race. All the
Interest in this seems to depend on the
struggle lietween tho Columbia and the
Harvard crews for the second place. A
majority of the townspeople believe
that tho blue and white will be a poor
mound to Yale, and that Harvard will
bo a close third. A number of excur
sion steamers put out for tho starting
point, opposite the navy yard, at 6
o'olook. The Block Island, Massachu
setts and Summer Uirl carried the
largest crowds. The wind had been
blowing up the river at a tremendous
rate all tho day, but at that time slack
ed up, so that the prospects for the race
By tho timo the excursion boats
reached tho navy yard tho wind began
to blow afresh and in a short time
kicked up a nasty sea. All tbe way be
tween the starting Hags und tho bridge
the big white caps could be seen. The
water was so bad that a shell could not
have gono a milo without being,
swamped, and after the judges had
gone over the course in the steam yaoht
Helvetia, which acted as judges' boat,
they agreed to postpone it until 11
o'clock to-morrow morning. At that
time the tide will be rising, and the race
will be rowed up stream, instead of
down. The Inst two miles of the course,
botwecn the bridge and the navy yard,
will be rowed over. If the weather is
bad to-morrow it will probably be post
poned until Friday.
At the quarters of the crow every
thing is getting on finely. The whole
three crews are in perfect condition and
anxious for the meeting. Phelps, the
starboard stroke of the Harvard fresh
man crew, is a little lame in his back,
but there is nothing serious the matter
with him. This year's Yale freshman
crew is said to be fully equal to the phe
liomenal eight of last year. Their races
with the 'varsity have given them con
fidence and practice which goes a great
way in a race. It is said that they have
made faster time in practice than the
'96 crew ever has, so if the weather is
favorable to-morrow it is expeoted that
they will push the record very hard. As
long as Yale continues to develop suoh
freshman crews she will remain queen
of the Thames.
Columbia has a freshman crew that
is a type of all those sent up from New
York a boat load of wiry, eager boys,
who know very little of the fine points
of rowing, yet put such life and dash
Into their work that they win the re
spect of all, and are apt to surprise
people. Tho Harvard freshmen are a
light crow, who may put up a good
race; yet it is hardly expeoted.
Tho varsity crews went out in the
evening into spots sheltered from the
wind, and practiced racing starts. That
was the only work they did to
d(iy( being taken down the har
bor to see the yacht race
in the morning. It will bo
their last practice before the raoe to
morrow night. The Yale oarsmen are
resting confidently, while the Harvard
men are living in the hope of having
the luck turn their way, and causing a
repetition of the surprise of 1801. There
has been no betting in New London on
the race, and if any Harvard money is
put up it will call for very long odds.
A few bets have beon made as to the
second crew in the freshman race, but
beyond this little money is offered.
Iu the freshmen race Columbia will
have the east course, Yale the center,
and Harvard the west. It is very prob
able that a short observation train will
be run, as most of the people will be
here for the freshmen race, who in
tended to witness the 'varsity raoe,
owing to the postponement.
The Yale and Harvard 'varsities will
row in the following order at 5:30 to
morrow afternoon if the water is good.
If too rough it will probably be post
poned twenty-four hows.
