Tiie m-miH-nitic Convention ha fitly in
augurated a IKilitical funeral hy embalming
the stately candidates of the spoilsmen in a
solemn casket of ohituaries. The most strik
ing feature of the platliirm is its lamentation
over the di-ad, ami the chief significance of
the ticket is the failing patronage of the liv

The Cry With Which Democrats En.

PiiiLAi'KLrHiA, Pa- August 31. Tlie nom
ination of Black promise to cause the repe
tition in IVnnsylvaiiia uf the Folger cam
paign in Sew York. Judge Folger was
personally a i1rst;rute candidate, but the
belief that be was not the choii of the
party, hut had men forced npnn it by the
Adniinist rat ion, caused the Ri-pulilawn
niaases of New York to dump the ticket in
a way that enabled thr Di-tu.a-rats to mil up
a huudred thousand majority. Black, who
does m rise nlsive the class of nsai-1ahle
meiliia-rilies, il.a-s not inspire any feelings of
M-rsonal interest that can mitigate t ho resent

their choice lais l-eu set aside hy I he iu-trigui-s
of the olliccholdi m and the intlin-ni-e

to dump the ticket is heing freely declared.
The Philiulelphia Reeurd i voicing this
sentiment ill loud and ringing tone. Iu its
bisue of to-day it dm-lanw :
Mr. Blai-k will lie Is-aten out of sight as
Mr. Randall's factotum. It cannot Is- hclasl
or hindered. I'ndiT the cin-umstances the
lxt thing for every IKtiUH-rat in the State to

way a pmtest may be made which everylsaly
will understand, even tin- obtuse gentleman
who from the White House ha given his

We have lost our (Jovernor, anyway, and
we may as well make the defeat a Waterloo,
thus testifying our devotion to Benna-racy
and our hatred of it betnivers.
This is the feeling that is taking shaH?
among the DennH-rutic voters. Tlicy realize
that the ticket cannot possibly lie electi-d
and that it was not put up to Is- elected, but
simply to announce to the Administration
that the Rainfall faction represents the Hem-la-ralic
atrty of Pennsylvania and must con
trol the Feilcral (aitninage of the State.

n-quiMeil, and immediately it la-gall to la;
noised alamt the Slate that Wallace was to lie
the nominee of the lVniiHrucy for tiovernor.
Walhn-e hesitated to speak himself and Ran
dall made no pledge in tsou to supsrt
him. It was this latter that the Clearfield
man dcsinal. However, his friends advised
him to go ahead, fully believing that at the
opimrtune moment Randall would come to
his aid. Wallme then declared himself fiat-
fiaited as a candidate to try the effect Uain
the ex-Sjwuker and hi friends began to sing
the Congressman's praises and tell of the
great obligations which Randall owed to
Wallai. The Congressman turned a deaf
ear to all these entreat ie for help from the
top of the AUegheiiks. and after getting
Wallace into the field as a full-Hedged candi
date he suddenly declared for Lient.-Rov.
Illack. Having got Wallai-e to commit him
self he defeated him in onler to make a sig
nal demonstration of his claim to control
Pennsylvania and to kill off Wallace as a
rival source of influence at Washington.
Already there is trouble about i-ainpaign

The Bearded Girl a Man.
New Yobk, August 21. A few weeks ago
a (icrson who claimed to lie a rcsiertable
Swedish servant girl, whom pnividence had
cursed w ith something that was very like a
lieanl, created a tell ihiys' sensation by al
leging that someone of the ail ice detectives
had met her on the street one evening and
insulted her. and when she hail resisted him,
had arrested her and ha-ked her up on u
charge of having solicited his company 011
the street. At the station house she claimed
she had to submit to further indignities at
tlie liamLs of the same detective. The detec
tive declared that tie hail seen her stopping
liedestrians several different time before he.
arrested her. and denied all the other charps..
The woman's story, however, was so plausi
ble and so well mrnnsinit.il, apri ntly,that
the detective was reduced to the ranks as a
IKinishment fiir his offense, ami the woman
went free.
Karly this morning, in Cuinn square, a
park policeman arnsstiil for disorderly con
duct a person who wore female attire, but
whose actions caused some doubts as to her
ex. When she was arraigned in court, the
Judge remanded her to await the result of
au examination bv a physician, which was
ordered to la- made.
The person was taken to Jlellevue Hospi
tal, and the physician in charge decided, al
though tlie statement has still to be made in
court, that the woman was a man, and she
was further identified as the innocent and
unfortunate servant girl whose maltreatment
at the hands of the detective recently caused
so much excitement. The man's name is
said to la? Bernard Banian, and it is asserted
that, as a heanlnl woman, he has travrled
all over the ennntrv in various shows.

tion of di'legaics to nominate a candidate for
Congress in the Sixth Mississippi district at
Mississippi City Unlay Jefferson Ilavis, w ho
was pn-seiit as a s-ctutor. was invited to ad
dress the convention. The venerable ex
President of the Confederacy, after an en
thusiastic reit-pUon, spoke at some length.
He sia.ke of the assembled Mississippians as
hmtliers and fellow countrymen, and said
that there was a time when he could have
called them fellow citizens, hut that time,
had passed. Yet they wen-fellow Missishiji
piaus, for be was a Mississippian from head
to fiait. He sjaike of the teniptains to which
a Congressman was excised, surrounded by
contractors and lobbyists. It was not diffi
cult to send an honest man to loitgrcss. but
to p-t one who could w ithstand temptation
and come hack honest w as not such au easy
In conclusion Mr. Davis said that although
he tould not vote, he was proud to la- held iu
such high esteem by Mississippians. He
could not vote laaause he had ri-siirned his
(aisitioii iu the Tinted States Senate to take
the aisition of Mnjoi-lieiicral of Mississippi
militia, and then to iki his duty w hen placed
ill charge of the atlairs of the Smth. He
was glad it was not coniilered a crime by
Mississippians that he had !a-eii true to
them. Tne country wa now at laai-e. and
