The New York labor Com- missioner in Court. He Attempts to Justify His Questionable Acts. Farther Hearing of His Case Post poned to October Ist. Weaver's Tarn About His Bad Treat ment ln Georgia Denounced as a Lie Out of Whole Cloth. Political News. By the Associated Press.] Albany, N. V., Sept. 27.—Labor Com missioner Peck appeared in court today, and said he ebould not be called on to allow an examination of tbe tariff sta tistics received from New York manu facturers, because they were given in confidence, and the facts were obtain able in no other way. His report on labor and wages was based on these. The returns were his own property, not that of tbe state. The same methods prevailed in other states. The case went over to October Ist, and Peck claims first blood. Commisioner Peck's affidavit pays, in part, that tbe practice pursued by him in 1890 and 1891 was no departure from bis uniform course of prior years. He found in the law creating his office a provision authorizing him to examine witnesses, but with the condition that n ) witness shall, against bis will, be compelled to answer any que&tiena respecting his private affairs. Tbis re striction rendered it practically impossi ble to give effect to tbe intent of the legislature, unleas the confidence of the people of the state was secured and re tained and their private affairs volun tarily disclosed. Repeated refusals came to him from business men, and besides the circulars sent out each year, he wrote thousands of letters, giving Eersonal assurance that no use would c made of their confidence, and that every communicetion would be held eacred. By eucb legitimate means and honorable pledges only, waa he able to discharge the responsible duties of hia office and render to tbe legislature tbe data annually transmitted. l, Tn 27states of the union," said he, "that have labor bureaua, it has been found necessary to give to all persons the pledge of security and confidence given by him during the several years of his official life." The summary issued by him in 1892, and about which tbese proceedings have arisen, waa issued and published at the time usual for tho publication of "tlier state reports. ' The attempt made to establish the theory that bia report wae given out to influence the pending elections waa falae, aa the compilationa were all made before any Democratic nomination was made, and the data obtained before any one could tell who the nominees of any party would be. The commissioner aayß he ia further advised by bis counsel that, under tbe decision of kindred cases, injunctions would lie against him if he attempted in any way to make public matter be had guaranteed should be held secret and confidential. POSING AS A MARTYR. Weaver's Aspersions Against the People of Georgia Refuted. Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 27. —Chairman Atkinson, of the Democratic executive committee of Georgia, has issued a reply to the published statement by General Weaver and Mrs. Lease. He says they do great injustice, not only to the Dem ocrats, but to the people of tbe state. At Albany no effort was made to pre vent Weaver from speaking, but when a prominent negro of that place took the stand to refute what Weaver said, Weaver was so indignant that a negro should attempt to answer him, that be left the platfoim. The only foundation for tbe egg story is that a small boy in an open air audience at Macon, threw an egg and waa promptly arrested for it. Weaver's claim of persecution, says Atkinson, is nothing more than an ef fort to pose as a martyr. His state ments deliberately misrepresent the people of Georgia, and were cunningly devised for campaign purposes. He canceled his engagements in Georgia because he saw he had been imposed upon by his own party managers, who bad led him to believe there was a chance for the People's party to win in Georgia. BAY STATE DEMOCRATS. Governor Rnssell Unanimously Renom inated—Other Nominations. Boston, Sept. 27. —The Democratic state convention met today. Hon. Jo siah Quincy, chairman of the state com mittee, called the convention to order, and was made temporary chairman. In accepting the position, he made a speech, in which he said tbe Democracy was sure to carry New York and the country, and said the force bill argument waa working favorably in tbe south. These words, he said, he brought from national headquarters. Hon. Charles T. Russell waa chosen permanent chairman. On taking the chair he dwelt at length on the state bank plank in tbe national Democratic platform, reciprocity, and the force bill. The platform endorsee the tariff plank of the national platform; de mands raw material free of duty, espe cially wool, coal, iron, lumber, drugs, dyes and manufacturing chemicals; de clares that the necessity of raising a large revenue by the tariff will prevent auch a reduction therein as to disturb busi ness; expresses fear that Republican success means tbe enactment of a force bill; denounces the Republican party aa a fosterer of truata, a giver of lands to railroads, and a dispenser of undemo cratic bounties and subsidies; demands the repeal of tbe silver act of 1890 as likely to derange and debase the curren cy, and advocates the removal of the national tax on the circulation of state banks. The following is the silver plank: "We repeat with renewed emphasis our declaration of last year in favor o the repeal of the dangerous Republican silver act of 1890, and again denounce this measure aa a menace to the main tenance of a Bound and stable currency, threatening to derange values, impair the obligations of contracts and bring tbe currency of the country to a purely silver basis. "We congratulate our Democratic rep resentatives in congress upon their val uable services in the support of tbe cause of sound money. The circulating notes, features of the national banking system, have, by common admission, become inoperative, and we now have in our financial system no banking expedi ents for the issue or withdrawal of credit notes, according to the necessities of trade. We advocate the removal of the national tax upon such circulating notes of state banks as are so secured that their re demption in lawful money will always be assured." Governor Russell was unanimously re nominated. James B. Carroll waa nominated for lieutenant-governor. Tbe ticket was completed as follows: For secretary of state, Charles 8. Ham lin ; treasurer, James S. Grinnell; aud itor, Irving B. Say lea ; attorney general, Charles F. Lilly. SANTA BARBARA REPUBLICANS. Nearly AH the County Officials Renom inated by Acclamation. Santa Barbara, Bept. 27. —The Re publican county convention, today, made the following nominations: For assemblyman, William Talbot; sheriff, R. J. Broughton; county clerk, F. L. Kellogg; auditor, Jerome T. Johnson; recorder, C. J. Murphy ; tax collector, Miguel F. Burke; district attorney, A. E.Putnam; treaaurer, W.N. Metcalf; coroner and public administrator, A. M. Ruiz ; surveyor, John Reed. Tbe convention was harmonious throughout, and with the exception of assemblyman and county treasurer, the present incumbents were renominated, in all but two instances, by acclamation. CLEVELAND'S LETTER. JOHN SHERMAN TOTS WITH IT IN A STUMP SPEECH. The Demoeratlo Managers Are Vary Well Pleased With It and So Are the People—Some British Comment. Mansfield, 0., Sept. 27. —In a speech this evening, Senator Sherman referred to Cleveland's letter of acceptance, call ing particular attention to the fact that no mention is made in it of the Chicago tariff plank. "He did not dare endorse it," said the senator, "for the Democracy is the only paVty since the formation of the federal government that dared pro claim a protective tariff unconstitutional, and it will wish it had not before the election is over. Talk about tbe latter day Democracy being tbe party of Jef ferson and Jackson! Why, they would not own it if they were alive today." DEMOCRATS LIKE IT. New York, Sept. 27. —The Democratic managers express the greatest satisfac tion over Cleveland's letter of accept ance. Ex-Secretary of tbe Navy Whit ney, Secretary Sbeerin, of the Demo cratic national committee, and Bradley B. Smalley, each telegraphed congratu lations to the ex-president. Whitney said the letter is a broad minded, patriotic address. Smalley. said he considered it the ablest letter Cleveland has ever written. In his dispatch of congratulations, he. said: "I read your letter of acceptance with admiration and pleasure. It meets every issue in a satisfactory way." Secretary Sbeerin said he thought the letter explicit in every particular. A fair, honest expression ia what the peo ple are entitled to from every man who asks their suffrages, and from no man have they been accustomed to get an opinion in plainer, bolder terms than from Cleveland. Aithur P. Gorman aaya it ia admira ble. SINISTER BRITISH COMMENT. London, Sept. 27.—The St. James Ga zette, commenting on Cleveland's letter, says: "Cleveland's words have one meaning. The Democrata have no in tention whatever of adopting free trade. The democrats are more tepid for tariff reform today than in 1888. We can, therefore, only conclude that, in the opinion of the party leaders who make it their buaineea tq watch public opin ion, the McKinley tariff has not made protection leaa popular. We have no doubt, even if Cleveland wins, that there will be no great change in the fis cal policy of the United States." The Globe says: "Cleveland haa de cided that America has not yet had enough—at any rate, not too much—of McKinleyism, and he does not intend to abandon it." The Poat says: "It is clear that the American public ia still a good way from the penitence which their Euro pean teachers in economic science await with such confidence." The Standard thinks an attempt to find a middle course on the tariff ques tion, will seriously hamper Cleveland. "The hesitant obscurity of bia lan guage," says the Standard, "shows his difficulty in expounding bia own policy. Harrison has tbe advantage of the aweepmg confidence that will appeal forcibly to national prejudicea and pas- Biona. On the currency question there ie little to choose between the two can didates." The Timee aaya that it has a leaa con fident ring than preaident Harrieon'a on tbe tariff queation. "He evidently ia afraid to assert hia policy with equal courage and clearness. Hia language ia not easily reconciled with the broad principles laid down at Chicago. Doubt less bis contempt for the alarms of the protectioniete, is fully justified, but if he ia right, why should free trade be treated as a bogy ?" VerhoefTs Effects. Wilmington, Del., Sept. 27.—The trunk and personal effects of Verhoeff, the Bcientist of the Peary expedition, arrived tonight and were examined. They contained nothing that would in cate his intention to remain behind in the Arctic region. TAKEN OFF THE WRECK. Two Men Saved from an Aw ful Fate. Ten Days of Untold Suffering anil Suspense. O'Brien and Holmes Rescued from the Stranded Whaleback. Dr. Beale Accused of Having Murdered Forty Infanta—A Case of Suicide at Orovllle—Other Pacific Coast News. By the Associated Press.l Mabbhfikld, Ore., Sept. 27. —After 10 days of suffering from cold and hunger and the probability of filling a watery grave, Captain O'Brien and his watch man, William Holmes, were rescued from the whaleback steamer Wetmore this afternoon, by Captain Bergman and the Umpqua life-Baying crew. A week after the crew bad been taken off the wreck, Captain O'Brien and hia watchman went aboard the vesael dur ing a calm to prevent parties from boarding her and claiming salvage. A storm came on, and for tbe laat 10 days all the efforts of the life-saving crew to rescue tbe shipwrecked men were futile, and it seemed certain that they must perish. Tbe aea was not running so high today an yesterday, yet it waa a hard struggle for the rescuers to reach the vessel. After several hours' work they put a line aboard, which O'Brien and Holmes tied about their waists, and then jumped into the sea. Tbe life crew pulled them safely to shore. The men were almost worn out from starvation and exposure. For the last five days they lived upon a scant meal a day. and this morning they divided their last biscuit. Their suffering from cold was terrible, and for two days they have stood in water up to their waists, with the spray dashing over their bodiea. Tbe wharf at Empire waa crowded to day when the men came ashore, and the greatest interest in caring for their wanta waa taken by tbe citizens of that place. The weatberside of the Wetmorata main cabin is stove in, and the Teasel will undoubtedly prove a total loss. MURDERED FORTY INFANTS. The Departed Dr. Bsale's Fearful Record of Crime. San Francisco, Sept. 27. —The Exam iner thia morning printed the statement of a woman named Montrose, who charges that, within a period of ten months, ending last May, 40 new-born infanta were disposed of in auch a man ner by Dr. H.
