Charleston, W. Va., Oct. 30.—Ad| h '>
£. Stevenson, the Democratic candidate
for the vice-presidency, gave to the
press tonight his letter of acceptance.
He says he has been engaged continu
ally since tbe big New York meeti/.g at
wbich he and Cleveland spoke, \1 din
cussion before the people of man/states
of the union of the issues emphasised
b) the Chicago convention and repre
sented by tbe Democratic candidate for
president, Grover Cleveland. The op
portunity haa thus been denied bim to
write a formal acceptance with the care
he would desire. He says, however,
that Mr. Cleveland's treatment of the
« jeues now before the country for discus
sion and settlement is oo complete that
he can do little more than endorse
Cleveland's position and give it the em
phasis of his unqualified approval.
"It is plain," says Mr. Stevenson,
"thfat our present inequitable system of
tariff taxation has promoted the growth
of such conditions in our land as result
in drawing tribute from «many for the
benefit of a few; part of the people Are
oppressed in order that the remainder
may prosper unduly; equality is lost
sight of; injustice hardens into precedent
which is used to excuse new exactions,
and there arise artificial distinctions
which the beneficiaries come to look
upon ia due time zb vested rights, sacred
to themselves. If the beneficiaries are
able to gain a new tenor of pow
er, tbe development of these condi
tions most continue until the power
to tax will be lodged in those willing
and able to pay for tbe perpetuation of
the privileges originally conferred by
the confiding people, for the preserva
tion inviolate of their own government.
There is no longer a pretext for the
maintenance of a war tariff in times of
peace, and I am in hearty accord with
the demand of the Democratic platform
for tbe reform of this system."
The convention also declared its posi
tion on the currency question in no
unmeaning words, says Mr. Stevenson.
He then quotes the currency plan*, of •
the platform and saye: "To th.V
plain and unequivocal declaration in
favor of sound, honest money, I sub
scribe without reservation or qualifica
tion. A safe circulating medium is ab
solutely essential to the protection of
the business interests of our country,
while to the wage-earner or the farmer
it is all-important tbat every dollar,
whatever its form, that finds its way
into his pocket, sball be of equal, un
questioned and universally exchange
able value, and of equal purchasing
"Another issue of great moment is the
force bill, the magnitude of wbich can
not be overstated. It may mean tbe
control of the election of representatives
in congress by the bayonet. Tbe Re
publican party by its acts in the Fifty
first congress, and by its platform in the
late national convention, stands pledged
to the passage of this bill. That it will
pass it when it has the power no sane
man can doubt. Since my nomination
I have been in eight southern and
southwestern states, and found a
general and growing apprehension
of the evils which it is believed would
result from the passage of the Lodge
bill, or similar legislation. I found tbe
industries established by northern capi
tal during Mr. Cleveland's administra
tion "in a languishing condition; tbat
emigration of tbe labor and capital in
vited to tbeir states by tbeir then peace
ful condition had already in a large
measure been caused.
"The enactment of the force bill into
a law, while it would threaten the lib
erties of the entire people, would un
doubtedly retard the material growth of
the states at which it was specially
aimed; would incite in many communi
ties race troubles, and invite retaliatory
legislation wbich would disturb prop
erty values and discontinue and destroy
the' security of northern investments;
and its reflex action upon the northern
states would result in tbe consequent
lose of commercial and trade regulations
with a vast territory now becoming
tributary to their wealth and prosperity..
"I say nothing now of the inherent
vice, of the un-American and revolution
ary spirit involved in the Lodge bill,
wbich was pronounced by a Republican
senator the most infamous measure that
ever crossed the threshold of the senate.
I appeal to the instincts of self-interest
and the sense of common justice in the
American people. The era ot good feel
ing and renewed commercial relations
commencing with the administration
of Mr. Cleveland in 1884, should not be
interrupted by the inauguration of a
policy tending to destroy popular repre
sentation and the purity of local self
government ; wbich furnishes an instru
ment to discredited federal power to
perpetuate itself; which seeks to keep
alive sectional jealousies and strfe;
which threatens important and material
interests, and which offers no excuse or
palliation for its existence, except the
perpetuation in power of a political
party which has lost public confidence."

Naw York, Oct. 30 —Joseph H. Man
lev, member of the Republican execu
tive committer, in an snterview today
said the Republicans have 216 electoral
votes for their national ticket. The
Democratic managers, he asserts, can
not safely count more than 143.
When asked regarding New York, he
eaid: ''In the great Empire state of
New York it would be folly to say tbe
Republicans are absolutely sure of car
rying it. If tbe Republican vote ia
polled, and every effort wi'l be made to
poll it, New York will surely give its
i electoral vote to Mr. Harrison."

Domestic aud Coastwise Commerce Pro
ntoted by Favorable Legislation. ~
- The Trans-Atlantic Trade
Washington, Oct. 30 —E. 0. O'Brien,
commissioner of navigation, in his an
nual report expresses the opinion that
the exclusion of foreign vessels from
participation in our domestic and coast
wise commerce, provided by the act of
1873, has alone saved our shipbuilding
and shipping interests from ruin, and
that in this absolutely protected branch
of oar merchant marine we have ob
tained success in nautical affairs far sur
passing tbat of any other nation on the
globe. *
Referring to shipping on the great
lakes, tbe commissioner notes an in
crease in tonnage from 711,269 tons in
1882, to 1,183.582 tons in 1892, and says
it now embraces a fleet of large steam
vessels, models of beauty and efficiency.
I iHe says while American steam navi-
I potion has been absolutely driven from
toe trana-Atrantic trade, it survives on
the Pacific ocean ; first, for the reason
that the trans-Pacific lines are liable to
sustain themselves, through association
with an absolutely protected steamer
line between New York and San Fran
circo, and the benefit of the protection
which arises from tbeir aeeociation with
a transcontinental railway line.
The commissioner, however, calls at
tention to what he regards a threaten
ing danger on the Pacific, and says the
fact that the Dominion government has
enabled tbe Canadian Pacific railway
to construct its line across the
continent and place on the Pacific
ocean a line of steamers which receives
from the Canadian and British govern
ment an annual subsidy of $600,000 a
year, which ie five times the amount
paid annually to American steamers
carrying to and from Asia, which several
times exceed in magnitude the mails
carried by the Canadian line. The total
annual subversion to this combined
Canadian and British government line
of railroad and steam navigation
amounts to about $10,000,000 a year.
Besides, the Dominion government has
passed a statute in terms allowing
the Canadian Pacific to discriminate
unjustly against American transporta
tion lines, and in order to make the
securing of tbe Asiatic trade tbat gov
ernment has imposed a duty on tea and
coffee when imported into Canada from
tbe United States.
Commissioner O'Brien regards all this
as an assault upon the dignity, as well
as upon the commercial and shipping
interests of the United States, and as a
protective measure recommends the im
position of a discriminating duty upon
Asiatic goods when imported into the
United States from Canada.
While the tonnage of American-built
vessels employed in the protected do
mestic trade of the country has ad
vanced, the unprotected foreign com
merce branch of our merchant marine
hae declined. He does hot regard the
measures of relief already adopted as
- adequate to the restoration of American
shipping engaged in foreign commerce.
The commissioner says the adoption
of the bouse committee on merchant
marine and fisheries for admitting
foreign-built veseele to both our do
mestic and foreign trade would in
flict upon the ship-building and ship
owning interests a more severe blow
than it received 'rom the confederate
cruisers during the late war.
Frick Not a Contributor.

Disston, member of the advisory com

Paris, Oct. 30.—The body of a young
woman, cut into 12 pieces, was discov
ered today in an empty house in the
Rae Botzarie, near the Pare dcs Buttes,
Cbaumont. The head was cut off and
could not be found. Two men have been
arrested on suspicion of having perpe
trated the horrible crime.
The murder was evidently the work
of a practiced hand, the dissection of
the body being skilfully performed, a
fact which gives color to the belief that
the work was done by a surgeon, or, at
least, by a butcher. Blood stains found
300 yards distant, in a waste area of
ground, form the only real clue yet ob
tained. _

the goods thrown ashore by the waves.
It is supposed the heaps of

50 bodies, all greatly disfigured,
have been washed ashore. All tbe sur
vivors are so cut and bruised that tbey

A Democratic Candidate Threatened
With Death for Attempting to Ad
dress a Meeting—He 6poke
Juat the Same.
New York, Ocfe SO.—A Herald special
from Raleigh, N. C, says: State Aud
itor Sanderlin has just returned from a
canvassing tour on the Tennessee border.
A gang of desperadoes in Yancey county
had, he says, sworn that no Democratic
speaker should be heard there, and
when he went to Burnsville the threats
were renewed. The Democrats at the
court house, however, assured him be
would receive full protection. Soon
after he began hia speech,
Budd Farrott, the bead of a gang of
desperadoes, forced his way into the
court room armed with a bowie knife,
and began to curse Sanderlin and swore
he would kill him. A number of Demo
crats seized him and rushed him to the
door. J
As soon tbe door was opened Par
rott's garni rushed to hie aid. Pistols
mere firrxl, knives used and
stones thrown. A desperate fight
raged on the Bteps of the court
house for eeveral minutes, but the Dem
ocrats got the best of it, and drove the
desperadoes away from the building.
Dr. Sanderlin then resumed his speech.
Suddenly the attacking party reas
sembled in force. Two of their number
forced their way into the court
room, but were instantly seized
and thrown out. Then - the fight
wae renewed. Parrott was shot and
killed, while a Democrat named Phillips
was so terriblp cut with a knife that he
died shortly afterward. Three other
men whose names Sanderlin did not
ascertain were also killed, while more
than a dozen men were seriously
The greatest excitement prevailed in
town. Some of the desperadoes bad left
tbe place and it was suspected they
would lie in wait along the road and en
deavor to ambush and shoot Sanderlin.
Owing to this fact an escort of men was
made up to take Sanderlin safely to the
railroad, some distance away.
Shipping Damaged by Horning OU on
the Delaware.
Pailadelphia, Oct. 30.—A serious fire
occurred on tbe river tbis morning in
tbe vicinity of Point Breeze. It was
caused by an explosion of oil which
leaked from the large pipes connecting
the oil refineries on each side of the
Point Breeze gaa works. The escaped
oil worked down through tbe soil and
collected beneath the furnaces at the
pumping Btation in a large quantity.
When ignited, it exploded with suffi
cient force to break down the retaining
wall, and the whole volume of oil spread
in a burning mass over the sur
face of the river. The ebb tide
and stiff breeze carried the blazing
mass down the river. Great excite
ment followed among shipping men.
Tugs were hastily summoned to tow
away the steamers and sailing vessels
lying about. After hard work the larg
est vessels got to places of safe y. The
bark Felix and several lighters burned.
The bark Elena and one or two other
vessels lost their rigging. Several small
houses on the bank and 500 feet of
wbarving were destroyed. Tbe loss will
aggregate $135,000.
