Cleveland's Administra tion Is Endorsed. They Pretend to Jubilate Over the Triumph of Tariff Reform. Jas. E. Murphy Nominated Tor Su preme Judge, Thus Lessening the Chances of His Namesake. By the Associated Press. San Francisco, Aug. 23. The Demo-! cratic state convention was called to order at 10:30 o'jlock this morning. Half the delegates were absent. A re port from the traffic association was read assailing the Southern Pacific and attackiog the work of the railroad com missioners. Sproul, chairman of the committee on permanent organization, presented a report. A long discussion followed over the method of selecting, the state central committee. It was decided that each assembly district select a man from each county whoBe name would be presented to the con vention on reassembling. An adjourn ment then took place till 3 o'clock this afternoon when the platform would be reported. The platform endorses Cleveland's administration, re-affiirms opposition to Chinese immigration and favor the election of United States senators by a direct vote of the people. The triumph of tariff reform is made a subject of congratulation. The Republican state board of equal ization was denounced for releasing railroad companies from two million dollars delinquent taxes. The platform pledges support to the people of souths em California in their effort to secure a harbor at San Pedro free from the pos sibility of monopoly and denounces the interference of the Southern Pacific with the government plans for estab lishing the San Pedro harbor. The railroad plank states that fully forty-eight million dollar-s were paid b California to the Southern Pacific each year, and resolved that a reduction of 25 per cent in transportation rates must be made and pledges the nominees to work to this end and also to reduce freight classification one-half. It declares against the Beilly funding bill, which would lay a greater burden on California and pledges that every congressional delegate shall swear to a statement that if elected he will vote for a measure to foreclose at maturity on the roads and have the roads main tained as government highways for the benefit of. the people. With reference to the silver platform it denounces the statements of the Re publican platform as hypocritical inas much as the Republicans demonetized silver in 1873. The platform favors minting without discrimination, gold and silver at a ratio to maintain their parity. Late this evening the following nomi nations for supreme court justices were made: General term, Jackson Temple and Jas. E. Murphy; short term, Judge Bridgeford of Colusa. The convention then adjourned till tomorrow. PAYING FOR THE STIKE. The Governor of Indiana Lends the State $41,000. Imdianapolis, Aug. 23. The payment of the state militia on duty during the recent miners and railroad strikes be' gan today. $41,000 is the required amount and as there were no available funds to meet the obligations, Governor Matthews gave his personal note lor the required amount and local banks advanced the money. The legislature will probably make the amount good at its next session. THE A. P. A. ELEMENT. Dick Kerens Does Not Want Its Assistance. JS'ew Yokk, Aug. 23. Richard C. Kerens, a member of the Republican National Committee for Missouri and whose attempt to have the Missouri Republican Convention recently held, place itself upon record as opposed to the A. P. A. failed, is in the city. "The A. P. A's," he said, "are not only bushwhacker politicians and beg gars, but they swim back and forth be tween the parties and corrupt the ward and city politics of both parties. "Many fear the attempt of this ele ment with its pernicious doctrine, to fasten itself to the Republican party will drive away hundreds of thousands of honest voters. The Republican party is less friendly than any other party to such doctrines and will not fail in my judgment to meet this issue if is can be called such, manfully." FORCE OF IMAGINATION. A Man Who Had to Be Told Where He Was Kicked. The powerful effect of the imagina tion was illustrated yesterday in a street incident. A driver of a beer wagon was engaged in an altercation with his horse. He began whipping the animal, which retaliated by kicking the driver off the wagon. The driver covered his abdomen with his hands and groaned with pain. "Where did he kick you 7" asked a sympathetic bystander. "Oh, in my stomach," moaned the driver. "No, he didn't," said another witness, THE SPARKS SHOOTING CASE. The Defendant Gets Off With a SIO Fine. The case of J. M. Sparks, charged with shooting at Frank Jacquette and Billy Waters on Tuesday morning, was tried before Justice Johnstone vester- day and the defendant was fined $10. The fine was imposed because' the jus tice could see no way of avoiding it. He admitted that Sparks provocation was great: that he did what almost any other man would have done under the same circumstances, when he be lieved either that an assanlt was about to be made upon him or when his guests were being disturbed by the persons who provoked the shot. A JAIL DELIVERY. John Brown Breaks a Long Con tract With the City. John Brown, a 150-day man, severed his connection with the street gang last night by breaking out of the city jail. He accomplished the delivery by spreading two window bars apart and crowding out. Brown was committed less than a week ago for indecent exposure of so gross a character that Recorder Schwartz determined to make not only an example but a different kind of a man of him. The city jail is a very insecure affair but it has always served its purpose for the reason that it usually contains a class of prisoners who have no special inducement to get away. Whatever security is offered, the officials always supposed was intended to be exercised against improper characters who might design to break into it rather than against the fortunate persons inside who would hardly try to break out. LOCAL BRIEFS. The will of Thos. Ruff was yesterday admitted to probate. J. W. Wentworth of Pavson, Gila county, was yesterday appointed notary public. Phcenix park has become the popular resort of warm evenings for quiet, rest and refreshments. The Five Points grocery of R. M. Dameron, while not the largest, is one of the most reliable. L. A.

Miss Nellie Walton and mother ac companied by her uncle, James Mans field, of Philadelphia, set out yesterday upon a camping tour of Mesa, the Superstition mountains and McDowell Miss Walton's music pupils who know how richly she deserves an outing, trust the trip will be beneficial and with naught to mar its perfect enjoy ment. Walter O'Brien, the veteran gardener who so tenderly cares for the vegetation of the little plaza at Yuma station, one of the few green dots between EI Paso and Colton on the Southern Pacific road and who makes the fountain play when the train is in, subscribes to a lengthy and well written arraignment in the Yuma, Times of millionaire John W. Mackay, in which the latter is charged with that basest of crimes, in gratitude. J. T. Johnson is the enterprising young business man who will in a few weeks open a strictly high class, pure dry goods store in one of Mr. Cole'B store rooms between the Fleming and Mahoney blocks. He has been for live years paet in the employ of L. Zecken dorf & Co., of Tucson, where he had charge of the dry goods department. His brother, also a dry goods man of experience, will be associated with him. The store will be called "The Great Eastern." The assault of the Yuma Times on Millionaire Mackay and the card from Mr. Fitch in his defense which appears in another column suggests the opinion of the "old boys" of the relative merits of the bonanza kings as expressed by one of them at the time when some San Francisco crank, crazed by losses in mining stocks, attempted to assas sinate Mackay by shooting him in the back. "Is it Mackay he shot at?" said the 49er. "Mackay I Holy Moses, the man must have been crazy. If he wanted to shoot somebody and do some good to us all, why in didn't he walk a block or two further and take a pop at Jim Fair?" Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder World's Fair Highest Award. Gen. Ezeta a Prisoner in Fact. Departments at Wash ington Agree And His Surrender Takes Place Yesterday Afternoon. The FlKhtfor His Life Will Beifln In the Courts of San Fran cisco Today. By the Associated Priss. San Francisco, "Aug. 23. General Ezeta and his fellow refugees are priso ners at least by the authority of the United States district court. Early this morning the federal authorities received notification that the differences be tween the navy department and the de partment of justice had been compro mised and this afternoon the warrants were served. The nary department would not however firnish transporta tion to the Bennington but Dr. Calde ron, the San Salvadorean consul, came to the rescue and out of his own pocket paid for the hire of a tug to convey the United States marshal to the cruiser. Marshal Baldwin and his men were then deposited on board the Benning ton and are still on board with the prisoners, the cruiser having steamed into port but is lying in the stream there being a report that yellow fever is aboard and the health officer is in charge. It is thought that tomorrow the refugees will be taken before United States District Judge Morrow, who issued the warrants for their arrest. Then will begin the proceedings which will determine whether the five men shall be given their freedom or be taken back to San Salvador to be shot by their political enemies, the success ful revolutionists. The Prisoners Landed. San Francisco, Aug. 23. The pris' oners have been landed in San Fran' cisco and are now confined in the federal building in custody of the United States marshal. The Bennington has steamed to Mare Island. THE INDEPENDENT SUSPENDS, Its Career Closes With the End of This Month. The Independent will suspend publi cation at the close of the present month so that the issue of tomorrow will mark the end of its career. This journal was established two years ago by Mr. J. Frank Elwell and was dedicated to the support of religion and morality. It speedily became the organ of the churches of nearly every denomination in Phoenix and of the 1. O. G. T. lodges of the territory. It received apparently a very generous support in both sub scriptions and advertising patronage, nevertheless from the beginning it tailed to pay expenses. After it had been established about a year Mr. Elwell became convinced that from a financial standpoint it was not likely to succeed and he was inclined to discontinue its publication. He had however never regarded it as a money making venture but had hoped that it might become a moral engine in the community and territory. He there fore continued to make up from his own pockets the discrepancy between the re ceipts and expenditures hoping that he might put it into the hands of a set of men better able to bear a financial bur den in the interest of morality. His hope was not realized, hence the bus pension. That the Independent has served a useful purpose none can deny. It has been remarkably aggressive as a re ligious paper but its aggressiveness has been a measure of its proprietor's in tensity of purpose in the work he set himself to do. PERSONAL. W. T.
