Points From Her Letter Accepting' the Nomination. Census Snperintendent Porter Conies to the Rescue of Labor Commission er Peek—A Political Surprise In New York. By the Associated Pro* Nkw York, Oct. 16.—Mrs. Victoria Clafnin-Woodhull-Martin, the candidate of the woman auffragists for president, oi the United States, arrived tbis morning on the Etruria, from her English home. Her husband, John Biddulph Martin, a London banker and world's fair com miaaioner from Great Britain, accom panied the preaidential candidate. They were driven to the residence of Mra. Martin's sister, Mrs. Dennis O'Hallern. Being interviewed, Mrs. Martin said she waa eager to step once more on the plat form, after 16 years of retirement, and preach the gospel of humanitarianiem of every character Tonight she and Mr. Martin left for Chicago, to attend the dedication ceremonies ol tbe world's fair, immediately aftei which arrangements will be completed for campaign speeches, which Mrs Martin will deliver in Boet.m, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and other large cities. Mrs. Martin gave out for publication a letter accepting the nooaiuaticu, ad dressed to Anna M. Parker and others. The letter begine by stating that a nom ination upon a woman suffrage plat form eommende itself to the writer, es pecially aa tbe issue ia one which was originally raiaed and advocated by her, so long ago ac 1870. Mrs. Martin then quotes at length from her addresses de livered during that campaign, in which she argued that the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the constitu tion permitted the right of suffrage to women, and she earnestly commends all good women to peraistently demand their rights. She next proceeda to discuss at some length the method by which the evils afflicting society can be corrected. Bhe sees no salvation, except through an al most entire revision of the basis lawn of the Government. She says: "Even the constitution ot the United States itaeti, one ot the governmental charters', is '■> but a relic of old institutions." It is becoming juntas necessary to con sider the important subject of breeding intelligence and physical culture in the human race, aa it is in the inferior ani mals. In order to accomplish such results, new regulatione must be proposed for aociety. We must sur round motherhood with the proper con ditions of our enlightened age. It ia to women, therefore, that we look for the regeneration of mankind. The injury to women, through taxation without repre sentation, ia only the beginning of a aeriea of wrongs and persecutions to which the sex is subjected. lam not an advocate of woman's rights, in the sense of unaexing woman. Woman's vote is the only great weapon of reform. It would settle the liquor question, and with woman in politics and saloons out of politics, what may we not hope for? But I will not dilate further, simply presenting a list of come of the proposed reforms i under consideration in the humantta rian platform: Revenue and tariff re form ; tribunals of health; free courts of justice for the poor; bureaus of anthropology connected with all police stations ; laboratories for the analysis of impure food and liquids; woman suf frage; scientific reorganization of the criminal code; improved dwellings for the poor; labor tribunals for arbitra tion ; tbe aristocracy of blood."

During tbe afternoon Lincoln received a number of prominent Republicans, ac bis apartments in the Holland bouse. He was rather disinclined to talk for publication, but at length said, regard ing the international monetary confer ence : "I feel I may say Without impro priety thattheieisa reasonable prospect of a sufficient departure by England from her hitherto strictly monometallic basiß to give great hope of some prac tical steps being taken by congress for an increased use of t-ilver, and for its adop tion by a sufficient nnmber of tbe great powers. 1 should personally deplore an attempt by the United States to adopt free silver coinage without the assist ance of the European nations, whose aid is essential.

A DOTARD FE.IKOED BT A GANG or SWINDLERS* A Bold fun lid' nee Game Successfully Worked on Consal-General Kuiz of Ecnador - Tha Old Man Ruined. New York, Oct. 1(5. —Domingo L. Ruiz, consul-general of Ecuador, who was ar rested on tbe charge of forging the name of Gußtav Preston, a Boston merchant and vice-consul, to two notes of $-1000 each, waa brought before the police court today. The proceedings disclosed that Ruiz, who is in his dotage, is the the victim of a band of conspirators who fleeced him out of and in their greed for more induced him to endorse two $1000 notes bearing the forged signa ture of Preston. The principal in the conspiracy ia eaid to be Mra. Bertha Laws, the adopted daughter of Ruiz. Ruiz became acquainted with the Laws woman through an advertisement, she answering hia advertisement for a housekeeper. She waa then known as Miss Bertha Krimslat, of Stockholm. In the couiee of a few weeks she persuaded Ruiz that ehe waa hia daughter by a former mistrese. Ruiz finally adopted her aa his daughter. Thiß led to hiß estrangement with his family, and he went to live with the woman. Later, Bertha introduced Wm. Laws, a bookmaker and general sporting man. to her alleged father aB her husband. Ruiz lavished $3i) 1 000 on the woman, but she needed more, and, acting under her guidance, Ruiz called on Vice Consul Preston at Boston and requested a loan of $3000, Preston cheerfully complied, and Ruiz and hia adopted daughter re turned to New York, and she proceeded to spend the money, which did not last long, however. The conspirators then concocted a echeme to raise more money. Ruiz states that in August Mrs. L >.we bronght to him the two $1000 forged notes, and eaid Preaton,knowing the consul general was embarrassed, had sent him by mail the two notes. Ruiz never suspected them of being forgeries,and at once signed them. A man named Simon Epstein advanced tbe money on one of the notes, and when it was pronounced a forgery, he foreclosed the mortgage which was given to protect him, on the furniture in Mtb. Laws' house, and had the con sul-general arrested on the charge of forgery. Owing to the absence of important witnesses the case waß adjourned till Wednesday and bail given at $2,0110. The consul's son offered security, bat the justice could not receive it. To morrow, however, the money will be de posited with the city chamberlain and Ruiz will be released. A warrant was issued and Mrs. Laws was arrested to day. A OABZI CHESTNUT. The Mexican Revolutionist Said to Have Gone to Chile.
