Pa* f PAGES. CLEVELAND IN NEW YORK. The Man of Destiny Visits the Metropolis. Democratic Leaders Closeted With Him All Day. Senator Hill Said to Have Been One of His Callers. Important Matters Touching the Cam paign Discussed—Anti-Snappers Bent on Putting Up Lo cal Tickets. ly the Associated Press. New York, Sept. 30.—Grover Cleve land arrived from Buzzard's Bay this morning. He wae driven at once to the Victoria hotel, where he will remain during his stay, tbe duration of which it not yet known. He was received by 200 people at the pier. Among bis early callers was W. B. Grace, who held a brief conference with the ex-president. It is understood that the conference between Cleveland and Grace related to the anti-snappers' position on local pol* itics. Cleveland subsequently said be could not disclose tbe local political sit uation. Senator Hill is here. It is understood tbat the Democratic managers will try to get Hill and Cleveland together. Cleveland had a conference with the Democratic campaign committee thia afternoon. All the members of tbe Democratic national committee in town called on Cleveland tbis afternoon, and remained with him over an hour. They included Don M. Dickinson, Secretary Sbeerin,* A. P. Gorman, Calvin B. Brice, Jotiah Qnincy, and B. B. Bmalley. The reanlt of the conference has not been made public. This evening there were many callers at Mr. Cleveland's apartments. Ex- Secretary Whitney remained with Mr. Cleveland most of the evening. Bepre sentativea of both the regular state organization and anti-snappers called and bad conferences. After tbe state committee adjourned, without nominating a candidate for chief justice of the conrt of appeals, presumably awaiting the action of the anti-snappers, Messrs. Croker and Daly hurried over to the hotel and had a long talk with Mr. Cleveland. Messrs. Hill, Dickinson and others are said to Save been present. Upon leaving the hotel, Croker said he had an important matter to give out, but could not say anything about it until Cleveland gave permis sion. If Mr. Whitney, who is generally rec ognized as Cleveland's representative, speaks his sentiments, tbe ex-president will not oppose a third ticket in the city. Whitney is of the opinion that the more Democratic local candidates there are, the fuller the vote will be for the national ticket. Croker said there is danger from tbe third ticket movement; not that he fears the opposition to Tammany, bat the third ticket will be used for trading, and trading legialative candidatea might cause the loss of a United States sen atorship. When Mr. Grace emerged from the conference, be said he had had a long talk with Cleveland on the situation, and that the ex-preaident considered bia prospects of election splendid, judging from tbe reports received. Grace said he did not mention the independent local ticket to Cleveland, not thinking the latter ought to be aaked to interfere in tbeae local affairs. Tbe anti-snappers had a meeting to night, at which Grace waa present. Tbe general sentiment of the speakers favor ed patting forth a local ticket, and tbe sentiment was loudly applauded by the gathering. Nothing definite, however, was determined, and the conference committee waa instructed to see the other district organizations. GROVER ESCHEWS WINE. Ha Will Drink no In toxicants During; the Present Campaign. Fall Biver, Mass., Sept. 30. —Daring Cleveland's trip to New York, while seated at the table, a lady from Ken tucky sent a glass of wine to the ex president. He arose, bowed acknowl edgement, touched the glass with his lipe, bat did not drink. He asked to be excused, as he had decided to drink no intoxicants daring the present straggle. The announcement was greeted with enthusiastic applause. KANSAS DEMOCRATS. The Stalwarts Decide to Nominate Cleveland Electors. Topbka, Kan., Sept. 30.—After a con sultation lasting from 3 o'clock yester day afternoon until 10 o'clock this morning, the leaders of the stalwart Democrats prepared a statement for publication, declaring for Grover Cleve land, and appointing a committee to ar range for a mass convention to be held here October 7th. The bold stand taken by the anti-fnaionista haa brought to a direct issue tbe fight between them and the fusionißta. It - haa been virtually decided not to pat a ticket in the field, but to defeat tbe old time Democratic leaders by defeating tbe combination electoral ticket. SOOTH CAROLINA REPUBLICANS. They Resolve Not to Nominate a State Ticket. Columbia, S. 0., Sept. 30.—The Re publican atate convention adjourned at 5 a. m., after much discussion over small matters. A fall est of electors was nominated. The platform declares that with a free ballot and a fair count, the atate is Republican by 40,000 votes; condemns the Democracy of tbe state for defeating the will of the people by force and fraud; declares that the ree;i> tratiou and election laws of the state nnullify the republican form of gover ment; hails with satisfaction words of sympathy in the Bepublican platform of New York ; asks other states to take like action, with a view to making na tional sentiment to break up such laws. It was decided not to put a ticket in tbe field, because, as the resolution stated, Bepublican voters are disfranchised. HOPES FOR IOWA. The Democrats Will Wage an Energetic Campaign In That State. New York, Sept. 30.—A number of prominent lowa Democrats bad a lengthy conference with the Democratic campaign committee this afternoon, urging that with a proper Iffort lowa can be carried for Cleveland and Steven son. The committee decided to aid by a general distribution of documents and the assignment of speakers, the ener getic campaign already being conducted in lowa by its leading Democrats. A Populist Official Arrested. Enterprise, Kan., Sept. 30. —John W. Breidenthal, state chairman of tbe People's party, has been arrested on tbe charge of doing a banking business, without having complied with the law. His friends denounce the arrest ai being for political effect. SHERMAN ON THE STUMP. THE ICY BBNATOB WARMS VP TO HIS SUBJECT. Be Ascribes All the Virtues of Govern ment to the G, O. P.. and Traatla allr Waves the Bloods- Shirt. Cleveland, 0., Sept. 80.—Senator Sherman spoke at North Fairfield, Hu ron county, today. It was his opening speech in the campaign, and he went into the Frurteentb congressional dis trict where a bitter fight with Congress man Harter, Democrat, on one side, and £. O. Johnson, Bepublican, on tbe otber is going on. About 5000 persons were at the meeting, Senator Sherman reviewed the mate rial progress of the United States under the protective tariff since 1801, claiming all the prosperity was due to the Bepub lican policy. He said: "We stand by tbis policy. We maintain and defend it as constitutional and right, as beneficial to all classes of onr people, and as one of the beet results of the Bepublican policy. To say this policy of protection, tbe prin cipal design of which is to promote tbe intereets of the laboring man, is a fraud upon him, is a falsehood which every reasoning being can detect." "Modern Democracy," tbe senator said, "has thrown off all its disguises deelar-d openly for the doctrine proclaimed in tbe confederate constitu tion, and first announced by Calhoun." Sherman said he noticed that Senator Hill insisted, in a recent speech, that the Democratic party still stands on the old doctrine of tariff for revenue only, with incidental protection.' Senator Hill's position, be said, was not tenable, for the reason that the Democratic con vention not only rejected the incidental protection idea, but substituted for it tbe provisions of tbe confederate consti tution. "It is for yon, fellow-citizens," con tinned the senator, "to say whether* the public policy, which has been main tained ao long and successfully, which has produced Buch wonderful results upon the history and prosperity of our country; which haa already advanced na to the position of being tbe ricbeat farming country and greateet manufac turing country in the world, shall be abandoned to carry ont the ideas of the confederate states and tbe free-trade notions of commercial cities and pro fessional dudes, whose only idea ia that fit is Engliab, you know.' " j He quoted from tbe report of Labor bommisaioner Peck, of New York, and dwelt npon tbe decreased price of sugar, the enlargement of foreign trade, etc. Tbe senator aaid while the Democratic md Bepublican parties occupied about Ihe aame position in their platforma on the silver question, it must not be fnr etten tbat a majority of the Democrats both the senate and house frequently tooted laat winter for the free coinage of Bilver. He said the result of free coin age would be disastrous to all industries, and especially severe upon the laborer and the poor. r The senator devoted some time to the Democratic declarations in favor of tbe tepeal of tbe tax on state bank circula tion, and went over the history of wild cat banking in the west. Manitoba's Stubborn Governor. Ottawa, Ont., Sept. 30.—1t is ru- Uored that the difficulty between Gov ernor Shultz of Manitoba and the Ot tawa government, over tbe former re fusing to sign certain orders in council, passed by the government, ia broaden ing, and likely to result in the lienten jnt-governor following the example of Governor Angers, by dismissing tbe ninistry.

Closing Scenes of the Cabrillo Celebration. The Vaquero Tournament Was a Great Success. Leo Bio Breaks the Becord for Hop ing Steers. A Slight Accident at the Perry That Created Temporary Excitement But Terminated In a Hearty Laugh. By the Associated Press ] Ban Diego, Sept. 30.—A vaquero tour nament at the Coronado race track, closed the third day of theCabrillocelebration, and, like tbe preceding numbers of the programme, was a complete success. Both the Coronado and Benicia steam ferries were in use, running on a ten minute service, but they were inade quate to handle the immense throng. Sail boats, steam launches and row boats were called into requisition, but did not relieve tbe pressure to any per ceptible extent. Finally, when the crowd began to grow impatient, the huge steamer Silver Gate was towed alongside the wharf and a narrow gang plank, not over 12 inches wide, was runout. At that moment the vaqueros, nearly 160 strong, arrived and gave the spectators a foretaste of their horse manship, by riding their wiry little steeds down tbe narrow plank at an an gle of 45 degrees. A number amused themselves by jumping their horses from the wharf to the deck. There was A SLIGHT ACCIDENT at tbe ferry wharf which, for the mo ment, created great excitement, but ended in a hearty laugh. About 400 people were massed on. the pontoon, inside the gates, when it suddenly gave way and sank several feet. As tbe cold wave came rushing over tbe pontoon, there was a chorus of shrieks from tbe ladies, veils from the men and a burritd scrambling and climbing on the part of all. Fortunately no one was injured. AT TM TOUBNBY. There were at least 8000 people on the ground. The appearance of Don Tomas Alvarado, on a richly caparisoned steed, and wearing a gold embroidered eerßpe, accompanied by Charles Hardy, Fran cisco Pico, Dixie Thompson, Francisco Estudillo, Don Pancho Argnello and Tili A. Burns, all splendidly mounted, followed by vaqneros, was greeted with yella and cheers. Tbe entire party Baluted and galloped to the corral. At the first quarter post, immediately in front of the grand stand, was a high board fence enclosing a space about 40 by r3O feet, with bars at one corner. The gate was thrown open and out came A DOZEN 810 WILD BTEEKB with sharp, murderous looking horns and wicked eyes. Aa the steers neared the crowd, 100 vaqueroa closed around them, foiming a solid body, with only a narrow opening in front, which the cat tle had to take, straight ahead, which led into the corral in front of the grand stand. First on the programme was the roping and tying of eteera. A mounted vaqnero stood near the en trance to tbe corral, his lariat coiled in bialeft hand, while hia right grasped the wide noose. The horse and rider were as motionless aa atatnes, while the others rode into the corral and "cut ont" or separated one steer from the herd. Out it bounded, and started up the track, followed inatantly by a vaquero. Up the track they went in a mad race. The vaquero suddenly raises hia right arm, tbe lariat swings about hia bead once, twice, three timea, and away it goea, whistling through the air. The noose settles about tbe steer's borna. Vainly he tries to shake it off ; the little horse knowa hia part too well. Aa the lariat leavea hia maater'a hand he slackens hia pace, and aa the noose settles it tautena. He sees he haa tbe steer fust, and ia suddenly bounding forward ; he circlea about the mad creature, winding the lariat around hia feet. The circuit made, he slope instantly and settles bask on hia haunches, and bracea him self tor the coming chock. Another lean, and the ateer'a feet are drawn from under him, and down he cornea, some times in a double somersault; before he can recover himself, the vaquero dis mounts, snatches a abort hair rope from hia belt as he runs, and seizing the hind feet of the prostrate animal, tiea them securely, tbe horee meanwhile standing like a poet, braced to hold the lariat tight. That ia "BOPINQ AND TYING STEERS." Many of tbe vaqueros tried their band successfully, but tbe quickest work was Leo Rio's, from Don Marco Forster's ranch, San Juan Capistrano, who roped, threw and tied hia steer in 51 seconds from the time the animal leaped from the corral. Thia breaks the Southern California record. Ed Croasthwaite baa one of the beat, if not the beat rider, and his little black horse knew hia part to perfection. He won the second prize. Other events were equally inter esting, and never before haa ao satisfac tory an exhibition of the kind been witt c aed in California. A concert waa given by the naval re-' serves at the opera bouse, at which the First regiment band of Fort Grant, Ariz., aided by local artists, appeared. Admiral Gherardi and etaff and other distinguished army and navy officers were preaent. At the plaza an audience of 6000 waa entertained by an open-air concert by tbe Mexican band, three cheers being proposed for tbe band, and given with a will at the close of the entertainment. A grand fireworks ex hibition at Coronado, and excursion by moonlight on the bay, closed the cele bration. -; THE SMUGGLER HALCYON Returned to Victoria for A Bother Cargo of Contraband Goods.

A Hail Carrier Murdered. Albuquerque, N. M., Sept 30—The body of Amado Montaya, mail carrier between White Oaks and Pines Mills, N. M , which had been missing since the 12th instant, was found today with three deep gashes in the head, showing that he had been murdered. The place where found is 45 miles north of White Oaks, and four south of Bed Cloud, in the Callenas mountains. The mail pouches had been rifled. LONDON CABLE LETTER. THE EVICTION QUESTION WORRY ING THE CABINET. Evicted Tenants SnfTerißg While Belief Measures Are Being- Discussed. Belgian Aggression in Af rica Objected to. London, Sept. 30.—[Copyright, 1592, by the New York Aesociated Press.]— The question affording relief to evicted Irish tenants occupied the attention of the cabinet yesterday and today. Mor ley is untierstood to have advieed a tem porary grant of money on the grounr* tbat the commission cannot complet. its inquiry in time to prepare a bill at tbe opening of parliament, and while the commission is deliberating the evicted tenants suffer. The Irish Evicted Tenants' association will ask in the interim a grant of £250,000 with due representation on the commission. It ia learned tbat tbe ministers are in clined to concede a moiety of tbe evicted tenants' demands, but refuse to immediately sanction any portion of the proposed grant. The gravity of the eviction trouble becomes more intense under the action of the Tory landlords. The number ol evicted tenants now reaches 4500. Tbe number of eviction notices pending nnder the act of 1887, reaches almost 30,000. If the landlords meaD;to try to foil the Liberal policy by wholesale evictions, there wili be a hitter land war. The ministerial circle is confident that the cabinet will not hesitate to sanction the boldest measures the exec utive may require to foil the Unionist tactics. The appearance of a Belgian expedi tion on the upper Nile, within the British sphere of influence, has led the English foreign office to intimate that Belgium must withdraw the expedition. King Leopold, however, is using his per sonal influence with the British court and the managers of the East African company, to induce Lord Boseberry to consent, to the absorption of- a part of the Upper Nile country into the Congo state. Secretary Busk's proclamation declar ing the United Stales free from pleuro pneumonia, has not yet officially reached the board of agriculture here. Tbe board officials, however, accept the declaration as valid, and appear ready to respond to the United States authorities' application for tbe free admission of live cattle. Tbe Live Stock Journal, referring to the vast importance of tbe proclamation, holds that the government must allow a suffi cient interval to elapse in order to prove beyond doubt that the disease is wholly suppressed, and that this provision should have been made against Texas fever, of which 500 caees were detected in 1891 among animals intended for ex port - SMITH S SHORT SHRIFT. A Lynching Party In Shootm County Per forms Quick Work. Dunbmuik, Gal., Sept. 30. —As tbe south-bound train left Dunemuir, at 6 o'clock this evening, about 15 men boarded, with a rope. As soon as the train slackened its speed at Castella, they jumped off and ruabed up to where a deputy Sheriff of Shasta county stood with a guard and G. W. Smith, who had murdered his wife and daughter, ready to board the train and take the prisoner to Bedding. With drawn pis tols .the party forced the deputy sheriff and guard to etand aside, and while some of the party kept the officers cov ered, the others took Smith a ebort die-, tance away and banged him to an oak tree. Within 10 minutes after the train baited, Smith waa a dead man. He aaid: "Gentlemen, I deserve it. I did w ong." Before nightfall the avengera were back in their homes. Some believe that it was Smith's threatenines tbat made Mrs Smith tell the story of their agree ment to murder the child and then her self. Mrs. Smith passed away at 7:30 thia evening.
