GROVER AND DAVID.
Cleveland and Hill on the Same Platform. A Democratic Ratification at Cooper Union. Ex-President Cleveland Chairman oi' the Meeting. He Introduced Governor Hill Who Made the Principal Address of the Evening—Both Vocifer ously Applauded. Associated Press Dispatches. New York, Oct. B.—The Democrats of this city assembled in great throngs at Cooper's Union this evening to ratify the nominations of the Saratoga conven tion. Ex-President Cleveland was pres ident of the meeting, and many other notable Democrats were on the stage. Tumultuous applause greeted the ap pearance of Mr. Cleveland, the audience standing up, waving hats and canes and making all manner of demonstrations of enthusiasm. Mr. Cleveland at length obtained silence by raising his hand and ac knowledged with much satisfaction the compliment paid him by his selection as presiding officer. He went on to talk at some length about tbe issues of the campaign. He scored the protective tariff, the force bill, extravagance in the government expen ditures and the arbitrary action of the Republicans in the last congress. He made reference to the determined Demo cratic battle against these abuses last fall and the victory which resulted. "In the popular branch of the next congress," said he, "the party which lately arrogated to itself the domination of that body, will fill hardly more than one-fourth of its seats. Democratic gov ernors occupy the enemy'B strongholds in lowa, Massachusetts, Ohio, Wiscon sin, Michigan. In Pennsylvania the election of a Democratic governor pre sented conclusive proof of Republican corruption exposed and Republican dis honesty detected. But with all these results of the just and fearless Demo cratic policy, our work Is not yet com pletely doil6, and I want to suggest to you that any relaxation of the effort within the lines established by the na tional democracy, will be a violation of the pledges we gave the people when we invited their co-operation and undertook their cause." — Mr. Cleveland said he did not forget that we are immediately concerned with the state campaign. It seemed to him, however, that while national questions of the greatest import are yet unsettled, and when we are on the eve of a nation al campaign in which they must be again pressed upon the attention of the voters, the Democracy of the great state of New York cannot aud will not ignore them. "If we fail to retain our ascendancy in the Empire state, no matter upon what issue, it is lost, and no matter how much our opponents may seek to avoid great and important topics, it will be claimed as the verdict of the people against the principles and platform of the national Democracy. I am far from having any fear of the result of a full discussion of state affairs, but it does not fol low that it is wise to regard matters of national concern as entirely foreign to the pending can vass, and especially to follow the ene my in their lead entirely away from the issues they most fear and which they have thebestof reasons to dread. Those who are with us merely because they approved the present position of the national Democracy and reforms we have undertaken, and who oppose in national affairs th<s Republican policy and methods, and who still think the state campaign we have in hand has no relation to the principles and policy they approved, are in danger of falling into a grave error. Our opponents in the pending canvass, though now striv ing hard to hide their identity in a cloud of dust raised by their iteration of irrel evant things, constitute a large factor in the party, which, still far from har monious, seeks to perpetuate all the wrongs and abuses of Republican rule in national affairs. In the present con dition of affairs it is not to be supposed that any consistent and thoughtful member of the Democratic organization can fail to see it is his duty to engage enthusiastically and zealously in the support of the ficket and platform which represent our party in this campaign." CLEVELAND INTRODUCES HILL. At tbe conclusion of his speech, which was frequently interrupted by applause, Governor Hill appeared, and turning to him with a bow, and then again to the audience, Mr. Cleveland said he did not think it necessary to say more, and could not say less, than that Governor Hill was there. As the governor stepped forward he was greeted with an outburst of applause, similar to and as prolonged as that which greeted Cleveland. GOVERNOR HILL'S SPEECH. Governor Hill reaffirmed the attitude of the party on the tariff, and discussed silver at some length. He said in part: "Our platform renews the party's pledges of fidelity to sound principles of finance. It reaffirms the national Democratic platform of 1884, which ex plicitly declares that we believe in hon est money, gold and silver coinage of the constitution, and a circulating me dium convertible into such money with out loss. That is a declaration in favor of a double standard; in favor of bi-me tallism; in favor of ito\d as well as sil ver, and of silver as well aa gold. It recognizes no legislative disparagement of one metal to the enhancement of the other; it makes them both sovereign ; both legal tender for the payment of debt. However honestly the individ uals of our party may differ as to tbe means of attaining perfect bi-metallism, Highest of all in Leavening Powe Au S- **» 188 9- PCr Powder / JrJLY PURE THE LOS ANGELES HERALD. FRIDAY MORNING', OCTOBER 9, 1891. we are all agreed upon the desirability of attaining that end. The Democratic party of today follows the wisdom of its great founder, Thomas Jefferson, when he said: The monetary unit must stand on both metals. We not only re affirm that party declaration of the national platform of '84, but we go further and denounce the present Sherman silver law, not merely as authorizing the coinage of a silver dollar whose value is constantly fluctuating, but also as a false pretense and an artful hindrance of return to free bi-metallic coinage, and as tending to produce a change from gold to silver mono-metallism. Thus have we taken impregnable ground in favor of honest money. Those who would have run us into collision with our fellow Democrats of other states, and thereby wreck the Democratic chances of success in '92, have had their pans frustrated. Our platform unites all Democrats upon the common ground of honest bi-metallic coinage. Whatever method of attaining perfect bi-metallism the leaders of our party in their wisdom may decide to recommend in our national platform next yaar, the conditions will then determine and we may safely leave the matter to their judgment. We have not permitted dif ferences of opinion on that question to intrude in our councils this fall, and thereby endanger Democratic success in this state at this critical election." Governor Hill said the responsibility for the loss of the world's fair to New York was directly traceable to the Re publican candidate for governor and the Republican leader,who dictated and con trolled his actions. Fassett deprived New York of the world's fair, because ho disliked the local officials. He hated New York because it was a Democratic city, and desired to humiliate it. Hill also referred to the rumors that at least two of the Piatt senators, asso ciates of Fassett, were speculators in Chicago real estate, and of course were against New York. Frederick R. Coudert and others also addressed the audience. CONDENSED TELEGRAM 9. At Montgomery, Ala., the storage warehouse of Hunter & Co.'a compre;s burned, with 2500 bales of cotton. Loss, $125,000. The operatives of every bottle factory in France, with the exception of those Blanzy, have struck. This is in obeyance to orders issued by . the Glass Workers' union.

The Evangelical council, at Philadel phia, have decided to dismiss the charges upon which Bishop Dubs was suspend ed, and he was reinstated. Esher and Bowman were expelled from the church. General Clarkson has issued a call for a meeting of the national Republican committee, in Washington, November 23d, to select a successor to Chairman Quay, and determine the place of the next convention. The supreme court denied the appli cation for a writ of prohibition on behalf of Stephen T. Gage, and he will have to appear before Judge Wallace today and show cause why he should not be pun ished for contempt for refusing to obey the summons of the grand jury. At Albany, Ore., Frank Ingram shot and killed hia brother Henry. The men bad quarrelled over an inheritance left by their mother, and Henry had threat ened to kill hia brother. He approached Frank's house, armed with a gun, and when he attempted to shoot, was shot dead himself. Ex-Senator Blair, of New Hampshire, says he liked the idea of going to China as United States minister, but when the Chinese government, influenced by lies, refused to receive him, he was ready to retire. The president, he cays, was willing to give him an office of equal dignity, but he did not care for any thing else. A young woman from Moscow was ar rested in St. Petersburg charged with being a Nihilist. She confessed and ad mitted that she left a trunk at the house of the well known composer, Glazounoff, in which waa a revolutionary proclama tion.

He waa uevertheleßs com pelled to deposit as bail, fifteen thousand roubles. At GreeDup, 111., as a balloon on the fair grounds ascended, Alex Gordon, a country youth, tried to jump across the ropes.

At the election last fall in Sonoma county, Cal., Rutledge received a major ity vote for superior judge, and was de clared elected. Crawford contested the election and enou a h votea were rejected to change the result. Rutledge appealed and the supreme court declared several votes erroneously rejected, and gave the majority to Rutledge. Hia complaint is, however, deficient in certain particulars, so the case is remanded to the superior court, with instructions to award the election to Rutledge upon his filing an amended petition.

Allerton Succeeds in Down ing the Maine Champion. The Last Heat Made Only in 2:16 1-4. Nelson Wins the Fastest Heat in 2:13. Fast Time at Jerome Park—Leon Beats Dick Richmond at San Diego. Other Sporting Items of General Interest. In discussing theNelson-Allerton race in yeeterday's Herald the sporting edi tor wrote: "I shall expect Nelßon to win the first two heats and Allerton the next three and the race." This prediction was pretty near the mark as a glance at the account will show. Nelson made a great try for the second heat, but it was dearly demon strated that Allerton, while not so fast, was the better campaigner. Mr. Neleon made a mistake in going into the match. He had all to lose and nothing to gain. Allerton is only a five-year-old and he would not have lost prestige by a defeat by an older horse. The time made in the four heats shows that Nelson is not a repeater. •#* At Jan Diego yesterday Leon turned the tables on Dick Richmond. The two sons of Richmond are well matched, but Leon has now the fastest mark. ALLERTON BEATS NELSON. The Very Much Anticipated Match De cided. Rapids, Oct. B.—Twenty thou sand people witnessed the Nelson-Aller ton race today for a puree of $10,000. The weather was milder than yesterday, but still chilly enough to preclude any hope of record-breaking time. The sky wasovercaat and once or twice a few drops of rain fell. The throng gave Nelson great applause when the two stallions appeared, but Allerton was the favorite in pools. THE GREAT RACE. Both horses were driven by their own ers. Allerton coquetted in scoring, but the animals got away in beautiful style finally, with Nelson closely hugging the pole a head in advance. The pace was the sort that kills from the start. The quarter was made in 32 sec onds — a 2;08 gait, with Nelson a length in advance. At the half Nel son was two lengths in advance. Aller ton gained a length at three-quarters, but just as they swung into the stretch went off hie feet for an inatant, and Nelson won the heat in 2:13 by an open length. The crowd went nearly crazy over the reault, but the bookmakers still retained Allerton as the favorite in second heat. ALLERTON WINS A HEAT. The relative positions of the animals to the third quarter post was nearly a repetition of tbe first. Entering the, home stretch Nelson swerved toward in the middle of the course and faltered for a moment. Allerton took advantage of this and won by a half length in 2:l4>^. A PHENOMENAL BURST OF SPEED. In the third heat Nelson led as before. At the back of the stretch Allerton was half a dozen lengths behind. Down the stretch he pulled up even with Nelson by a phenomenal burst of speed. All efforts of Nelson's driver to increase that animal's speed were of no avail, and Allerton easily won by an open length in 2:15. In the fourth heat both drivers held the horses in check, they being head and head all the home stretch, when Allerton again showed his superiority and passed the grand stand leading by an open length, and winning the heat and race in 2:16) - In another attack of good-natured insanity the im mense crowd broke through the fence and surrounded Allerton, literally cover ing the stallion and driver with flowers.

San Francisco, Oct. B.—The commit tee having charge of the organization of the Merchants' Transcontinental asso ciation is striving to make the general meeting to be held at the chamber of commerce, on the 17th inst., a suc cess. The. committee will meet daily, commencing on Monday. Charles F. Crocker, vice-president of the Southern Pacific company, stated in an interview today, that if the asso ciation proposed to make a fight for a lower freight tariff, it would not suc ceed He said the railroads wefe firmly bound together in maintaining rates. It was hardly probable any company would dare to violate the compact or withdraw from the agreement in order to secure freight from San Francisco. If any company did consider it worth tak ing at the loss of its share of the over land freight, it would have many ob stacles to overcome. "In tbe first place," said Mr. Crocker, "the Southern Pacific company controls nearly all the terminal points in Cali fornia. It would refuse to give through bills of lading to those shipping by a road taking it at the loweßt price, and it would charge local freight rates on all such shipments. But if the merchants will organize and appoint a capable traffic man at the head of affairs who will not be unreasonable, they can accomplish much good. For instance, take any commodity where the price is low, the railroad company would be perfectly willing upon a reasonable un derstanding to lower the freight in order to make it profitable for the pro ducer to send his goods to market. As it stands now, if we reduce the freight tariff in order to assist the producer, the constitutions of the states through which our lines pass prohibit us from raising it again at the next successful season. A good railroad man, representing the leading freight shippers of this city, could gain many concessions if reasonable grounds were offered for granting them." The Trouble an Umbrella Caueed. "An overturned umbrella blown from a room in the Hotel Ryan, at St. Paul, caused a peculiar flood recently," said H. C. Calkins, an Erie, Pa., drummer, at the Grand Pacific hotel. The umbrella blew so as to obstruct the corner catch-basin during a terrific rain. Down came the flood, and the gutters became swelled into young creeks. Slowly the water in the ditches increased, until it ran over and flooded the basements of the neighborhood merchants, who found gallons of water in their cellars, and hundreds of dollars' worth of goods were destroyed, all be cause of an upturned umbrella.—Chi cago News.
