U ta the Pint Serious Break that Ha Bm Threatened la Twenty TmtwTIm only Wy Tooy Cm Oeln Protection U by Joining Hand with Republican. New Orleai s, Sept 1 The sugar ' planter' convention to-day wu the moat remarkable fathering In yeare, ' and the flret serious break In the dem ..ocratlo party In twenty yeara la now .threatened. The convention declared in favor of an alliance with the repub lican on national Issues, and two, and poMlbly three congressional districts, comprising the sugar region, are en dangered to the democrat; There were about WO men present at the convention, nearly all of them are of wealth with large Influence. E. N. Pugh was made chairman. Among those who participated in the discussion were H. P. Kernochan, who was naval officer under Cleveland, and Albert E. Btoplnal, democratic state senator. A plan for the collection of bounty on this year' crop was adopted. The convention then took up the po litical question. Messrs. McCall, Pugh, Kernochan, StoplnaL Ware and others advised an alliance with the republican party. They said that they had been betrayed by the democrats, and the only hope for protection for sugar lay in joining hands with the republicans. The negro question was no longer an issue, and self-preservation required an affiliation with the party which would give the protection necessary to the prosperity of the industry which was the backbone of the state. Resolutions were adopted setting forth that the white people of Louis iana and planters for years had been loyal to the democratic party, but that the state had been betrayed by a blow struok at its chief industry by that party which threatened its ruin, and that the election of protection candi dates had become a necessity. It was decided to meet here again on September 17, when the plans of the sugar planters will be perfected. It was also decided to nominate candidate In each of the three .sugar districts, and to affiliate with the re publicans. SORREXIO IS ALL RIOBT.

The horses reached the post promptly at the time set Domino showed signs of temper on his way to the starting point They never broke at the first attempt and Domino set the pace.

Edwin Mulford Resumed the Stand and Told of Telegrams Sent. Chicago,' Sept 6. At the opening of the United States court this morning Edwin M. Mulford resumed the stand, and further telegrams were produced at the instance of the government tend- ing to show that strikes were ordered after the Woods-Grosscup injunction was issued. Most of the telegrams read were fa miliar to the public, but some of them were not included in the original infor mation. One of these, dated St Louis, July 8, stated that the Wabash road offered $8,000 for an engine to pull a train out of the city. Another read: "Don't be Intimidated by Injunctions or troops. Neither can move trains. We have them on the hog trains. Even the newsboys have boy cotted the subsidized press." Several telegrams were offered show ing that local leaders did not always comply with their chief's demand to strike, but refused on the ground that they had no grievance. Mr. Mulford was crosB examined. The defense polned out that the authen ticity of the telegrams wa by .no means established. Mr. Miller then began his examina tion on behalf of the Santa Fe. Mr. Mulford continued reading tele grams when court reconvened in the afternoon. G. F. Cracker, an employe in the Revere house telegraph office, testified that the American 'Railway union, Sylvster. Kellher, paid for the telegrams which had been res! When checks were given In. payment they were signed by Debs and Kellher. Ad journed. ; Death of Otto Hints.

Sol RaspoaatbiUty of the Present Bast on Hliu. War San Francisco, Sept 6. Peking new paper received to-oay contain new that bode 111 for LI Hung Chang. The sole responsibility In the conduct of the present war rest on him and for every disaster of the Chinese on land or sea force sustained he Is held i. countable. The Nlchl-Nlchi says that Wang Jung Ho and LI Hung Tsan, who were commissioned a few months ago by the Peking government to watch over the actions of the viceroy are going to take active "measures now that In telllgence of defeat of Chinese on land and sea ha reached the ears of states men In Peking. Wang Hung Ho said to be on bad terms with the viceroy and as his Influence over the ceurt of Peking Is known to be considerable the situation of the viceroy must be an anxious one. The Hochl and several other papers even state that a committee for the Impeachment of the viceroy ha been appointed and that Wang Jung Ho, LI Hung Tsan, Chang Chtung and an elder brother of this Chang, all enemies of the viceroy, have been appointed Its members. . That the court at Peking was dis posed towards a pacific policy, and that the declaration of war was forced upon It by the viceroy, LI, Is evident from the great consternation with which the statesmen of Peking received the new of the sinking of the Kow Shing. The viceroy under Vated Japan, which he regarded as Incapable of taking any de ctslve step. His anger Is now chiefly directed against Yuen, the late Chinese resident In Corea, by whom he regards himself as having been misled, and hence, entangled In so critical a sltua tlon. Yuen is how virtually the center of hatred in Tien Tsln In connection with the present affair. He has found Tien Tsln too hot for him to live In and Is said to have secretly concealed muistMi. xne Japanese cnarge u a: falres at Peking and other members of the legation and the Japanese In that cjty, the consul at Tn Tsln, the con sUl general and the members of the con. sulate at Shanghai, 200 Japanese in all, boarded the French mail steamer on August 12,, and left for home. Since the outbreak of hostilities be tween China and Japan the Chinese population in the ports of Yokahoma and Kobe have been reduced by about z,vw. The Chinese, government is said, through lta officials In Europe, to be attempting t get .forty military and naval offlceiito s-ve- in the present war. A private telegram is. said to have been received In Toklo to the effect that It has been proposed that the Chinese military council take advantage of the want of men-of-war on the .Japanese coasis ro send war ships to attack number of-corts at the same timo. If China, has really decided to take the offensive instead of only defensive, she Is welcome, says the Shin Choya, to send ner cruisers to Japanese waters, wnere tne .Japanese will show their true spirit and make short work of the invaders. To thank Japan for her good win ana to bind closer the relations between the two countries, the Corean government has decided to send an embassy to Japan, OJT THE BALL FIELD. At Philadelphia.

Two and One Half Seconds. Indianapolis, Sept. 6. Indianapolis now holds the world's pacing record and came within a fraction of a second to-day of the world's trotting record, Robert J made the second heat in his match with Joe Patchcn for $5,000 in 2 minutes, 2 1-2 seconds, being the fastest mile ever paced. The three beats 'averaged In speed 2:03 2-3, making the fastest three heats ever paoed. The time by quarters of the second mile was as follows: First quarter, 30 1-4; second, 1:01 1-2; third, 1:30 1-2; fourth, 2:02 1-2. Iu this heat Joe Patohen went like the wind and forced .Robert J. to make a spurt of speed almost at the wire that was phenomenal. Colonel Taylor of St, Louis, the owner of the black stallion had said before the race that if the gelding won he would have to beat his team at Fort Wayne, which was 2:03 8-4. The black name in under the wire in ex actly that time. Iu the first heat he had made the mne in z:n nat. rne last pacers scored for the word at 4:05 o'clock with the track In the pink of condition, J Patchen had the pole. They scored on ly without getting the word, but the second time they went away with Patchen a little In the lead. Robert J. started at Started Walker's "go" and went up in the air. Driver Geets showed his masterly hand In aulcklv throwing the son of Hartford Into his stride by pulling him to the outside of the track. He was then six lengths be hind, but he settled down to wlu the beat. Patchen went the eighth in sixteen seconds and was still six lengths ahead at the quarter. Jack Curry, who was driving him, thought he saw vic tory and a world's record for the black when he passed the half far In the lead, but the gelding was leading and in the third quarter was nearly at his side. Down the home stretch Patchen still eld the lead until about the last furlong when the gelding made one o? those spurts which not even the liberal use of the whip could make Patchen head oft. There was excitement when It was found that the time of the heat made was up to that time, the fastest ever paced in a race.

Id It Is Partially on that Account that They Cannot Do Thnlr Proper Duty He Point Out Radical Reform No Gambling la Publlelo the City. New York, Sept (.Superintendent Byrnes to-day make a report to the po- lice board In which he Indulge in some plain talk, and point out radical reforms which he think ar necessary to secure the department from the re proach now heaped upon It and whloh, according to him, Is at least In pari deserved. It Is now about three month since the board, spurred on by the dls. closures made by witnesses before the Lexow committee, directed the super. Intendent to inquire Into the discipline of the department and the enforcement of laws to suppress crime and to report what he found, with such recommenda Hons as he thought needful. This report Is Mr. Byrnes' answer. The superintendent says that he sent detectives whom he could trust out In pairs In certain precincts, all ordered ta report what they found. Then he wenti, about Inspecting hlmself.As a result he Is able to state that all the laws to sup press crime or repress disorder are well enforced except the excise lawg.In three months his men observed 63,460 viola tlons of the excise law. The superin tendent says the police board put a fatal stumbling block In the way of the enforcement of this law by adopting three years ago, at the demand of the citizens' alliance, a rule which for. bids policemen to seek evldenoe to con vlct In civilian dress. The superintendent asserts that there) Is no public gambling In the city. The) problem Involved in the suppression of disorderly houses he finds difficult of solution. He states that the kind of evidence demanded by the courts as at basis for warrants to raid houses la of a character radically different from! that which the law seems to contemJ plate. Still, houses of prostitution and) assignation have been broken up la every precinct. Not one Is left that pur sues Its business openly. The Inmates have been driven Into tenements and flats where they mingle with and con. taminate respeotable people, and can only be ejected with difficulty. Mr, Byrnes thinks that the legislature; should take the matter up next win- ter. ' In regard to the discipline of the foroa the superintendent declares that it is not what It ought to be, and he lets in be unaeratooa tnat what is lacking Is centralization of authority. The com mon report in the department, says) the superintendent, that men are pro. moted for other than merit and attenf tlon to duty makes them negligent, Too many of them belong to social or? sanitations that are nothing b'ut'polIN r leal clubs. He recommends that the rule prohibit lng policemen In citizens' dress from seeking evidence against excise offend, ers be recinded; that membership in pot lltlcal . organizations be forbidden po licemen; that inspectors be made re sponsible for disorderly houses In thelB districts; that the inspectors be dei tailed to do duty under the superin tendent's direction; that promotion be made for merit hereafter, and that the "Broadway squad" be reorganized and! brought up to its former high standard.
