Ix tho past tlseal year 387,821 immigrants
arrived at the principal ports of
this country. Perhaps all told the arrivals
approached 400.000?more than half the
population of West Virginia added in one
year. In twenty-jlve years 8,083,130 persons
have come to cast their lot with ue,
and mora than a third of theso have come
within tho past five years. There will be

not rash in npon us. Thus far the process
ot assimilation has gone on satisfactorily.

The mistake of taking the school enumeration
at this time of the year is now
more than ever apparent. Added to tho
ordinary summer exodus is the unusual
number of absentees who, being oat of
employment, have sought the country or
dropped down Iho river to fish. These
causes will account for tho absence of
very many people who will soon return
to their homes.
The population has not decreased 972
dnce this time last year. There Is also a
disproportion between the adults and the
youth o! school ago. If from tbo total tcported
uxroBac of 072 we deduct 400, the
unmberof youth, 5WI ought to repiesent
the decreased number of adults. This
number of adults would take away more
than 400 children of school age. The
enumeration ought to be nude when the
population Is in Ifthortnal stats.

Platform.
CoLcunca, 0, August 20.?Before 10
o'clock, the hoar fixed for th6 meeting of
the Democratic State Convention, the
Grand Opera House was crowded from pit
to dome, and a select band entertained
the audience with national aim. The
greate&t harmony preniled, and the predictions'that
the old ticket would be renominated
still atood good.
A few ininutea after 10 o'clock, TI. T. J.
Cogan, Chairman of tho State Central
Committee, called the Convention to order,
andixC'ongressman Finley presented
the report of the Committee on Permanent
Organization, which was adopted unanimously.
The permanent Chairman, Hon.

.Mr. Follett, In talcing the chair, congratulated
the Convention npon its appearance
and rejoiced with the Democracy
of Ohio that they were able to meet
in Convention under a National Democratic
Administration?a pore and grand Administration.
At the conclusion of his remarks.
Mr. Follett was roundly applauded.
The report of the Committee on Credentials

on ltesolutions not being ready to report,
it was voted to procecd with the nomination-of
candidates.
Judge George W. Geddee took the platform,
and in a few well chosen words
placed in nomination the Hon. George

with long continued cneers and
shoata.
HOADLY AS EASY WISSER.
At the conclusion of hie remarks Mr.
Geddea moved a suspension of the rules
and the nomination of Hoadly for Governor

received with hearty cheers and round
upon round of applause, and was seconded

In quick succession tho name of John
G. Warwick, for Lieutenant Governor,

At 11 o'clock, while nominations for
Supreme Judge were being made, Governor
Hoadly wa* escorted to the stage,
amid great enthusiasm, and grecefnlly accepted
the re-nomination. The Governor
said he dodged no iasaas, and then was
not a fence in Ohio which ho would
straddle.
| He was agaiiwt prohibition and .#>very
one knew it. us arserteu tnat no was tor

He voted lor Grover CltralantJ, and
thanked God for it Ho was, and will

Frantliu, being placed in nomination for
! Judge of the Supreme Court (long t?nn),
tha roll was called and Martin received
the nomination, the nama of Giiinore
being withdrawn before the conclusion of

Tha principal fight of the convention
was in tbe seleeuou of a candidate for tbe

Jndgo Okoy, deceased, George IS, Oiey,
son of tho"" lato incumbent, was presented
with Vergil P. Kline, of Cuyahoga,

Tin ISSUES.
The following via then read and adopted
: Tbe Democracy of Obio in convention
assembled, congratulate their country
upon the election and inauguration of tbe
Democratic candidates for President and
Vlco President of the United 'Stales.
These fortunate events, aud the wise administration
that has followed, have already
dispelled, tbo ailudon that Democratic
success is inconsistent with the business
interests the country, or perilous
to the rights of Uio freedmen. The revival
of prosperity anil the increase in tbe
value of property, already boxun, duinonstrato
tbo beneficence of wmocialio principles;
even before any session of Congress
has enabled tbe country to realms tbe fnll
fruition of their application by.leslslallon.
Second?Wo congratulate .'President
Cleveland and Cabinet on the auspicious
beginning they have nu<lo la the nece?sary
reforms of tha Government, und
heartily endorse their administration.
Third?Wo approve the measures takon
by a Democratic Congress for preventing
the appropriation of unearned lands by
railroad companies, and by a Democratic
President in firmly holding public lands
for public maj. and preventing thoir unlawful
occupation.
Fourth-We reaffirm the platform of
principle* adopted by the Deraouratfo
National Convention held at Ohicagoin
1884.
Fifth?We commend the administration
'lA?a?tnii tYna/llv nml the WOfk of thft
Sixty-sixth General Aaembly, as vise,
holiest and economical.
Sixth?We especially commond the
fidelity of the Democratic members of the
Sixty-sixth General Assembly to the
pledje ot the party la (tvor of licensing
iho trafilo in imoilauinj liquors, and we
denounce the fraud and hypocrisy of the
Republicans la defeating this wise measure
of reform. Every Democrat in both
branches of tho General Assembly voted
to submit for popular adoption a constitutional
amendment providing for license.
Enough Republicans professing to be in
its favor wero present in tin House of
Representatives to hare given it the threefifths
necessary for its success, bnt refused
to vote, for tho avowed and only.rosson
that It wis proposed by Democrats. Upon
, the Republican party, whose caucus dictated
this course, Ilea the reproach of the
poetponement and temporary* defeat ol
this most wis* and salutary plan for the
1 regulation of the liquor traffic.
Tua FxomsiTiox qcdiiox.
Seventh?The Democratic party is, as it
form, and is in favor of tho largest liberty
of private conduct, consistent with the
public welfare and the rights of others,
and of regaining the liquor traffic ana
providing against the evils resulting therefrom
by a j udiciarv and properly graded
license system. Under the present constitution
of Ohio snch a system is forbidden,
and taxation is limited to property
and required to bo measured by its money
value. We therefore are in favor of a
constitutional amendment which shall
permit such a system, and we promise its
submission for adoption by the people if
the necessary three-fifths of each branch
of tlio next General Assembly be composed
of Democrats.
Eighth?The Democratic party is and
always has been the nart.v of the people,
and of tho sgricoltural and wool-growing
interests; thfe enemy of monopoly; the
friend of labor; in whose hands the interest
of worldngmen are and always will be
safe, and we favor arbitration as the wisest
means of settling differences between
labor and its employers.
Xlnth?Wo commend tho steps already
taken in the cause of prison reform.
Tenth?We favor the preservation of the
canaUus the chespest transportation for
producers and consumers, and recommend
that they be nnt Into an efficient condition
for public service.
Eleventh?We favor the establishment
of an intermediate penitentiary for the reform
af prisoners not belonging to the
criminal class.
Twelfth?We aro in favor of the adop
tion of tbe pending constitutional amendment
changing the date of the annual
State, County and Congressional elections 1
to November.
Thirteenth?Wo mourn the death of
General Grant; the citizens of bis native
State, without distinction of party, sorrow
at bis Iocs, and cherish tbe memory of
his modest and heroic character and hla
great deeds, as among their proudest public
possessions. We sympathize with his
bereaved widow and children, and wo
trust and hop* that his last words, urging
"harmony aud good feeling between the
sections," may be so taken to heart by
bis countrymen that sectional alienation
and hate may be a thing of tbe past.
Fourteenth?Knolml, That In the death
of Judge John W. Oi-v the State has lost
a pure and able jurist, and wo condole
with bis family on their irrepaiable loss.

The City ol New Orlsaai Iloand to Gat lo J
Debt. j
ITsw Obumss, August 20,?The cjty ,
government o( New Orleans is now In i
peculiar financial straits. Tbe usual hud- j
get was made this year and fortified by (
the one-twelfth rule, which only allows ;
one-twelfth of the annvsl appropriation to I
bo spent monthly. Notwithstanding this ;
rulo the departments have all overdrawn
their accounts. Commissioner Fitipat- '
rick's i)spartijient of Public Works had .
an appropriation of f 18,0(10 for material for
the year.?It baa spent $35,000 in six .
months. Commissioner Patrick Mealey'a .
public institutions have all gone over the
budget, but .it is asserted that the Fx- .
position and the consequent large unmbor
ol straogers put an extra strain-on the j
city jails. Instead ol a daily avtrajo of ,
300pri?mcrs-in the parish prison it has :
been 600. !
The Committee on Budget, instead of
censuring the violation of tbo one-twelfth
law, has quietly submitted to the dictates
of the bosaea above named and given
them all they asked for. This has been 1
done by borrowing from other Items in '
the budget As these loans will have to (
be returned at- tbe end of the year the .
result will bo to citato & large debt.

city has borrowed nearly $o00,000 at (J percent

will have to be paid, out is not provided
for in the budget. This will causa another
error in the Azures which bos not ,

regret over the publication of the Bcandal
urucie, reciting that injury to the city reralted
by the extensive circulation and

the statements were false, it was reaolved

possible, and that tbo author

It is said that if tbe Sentinel complies

ay uirouga uie oracera 01 uie neuiucicy

aru very meagre, as little could be
:arned by them at the place where the
(Talr occurred.
The report is that a picnic wts given at
tone; Creek, a little_placa on the river
reive miles below Frankfort An old
>an by the name ot Koach went to the
icnic to collect some money from the
ien having it in charge. They paid it,
nd the money being noticed by some
jughn, they waylaid him on his return,
emanding that he give it ap. He raised,
And they Immediaiely assailed him.
The old man was plucky, and a furious
niggle at once ensued. Of course they
lere getting the advantage of lioach, and
e would have probably been killed, bad
; not been for the opportune arrival of
is sou, WUlie lioach. The latter, a youth
f eighteej, happened to be armed, and
t once opened tire on the men. He ran
p so close that the powder almost buint
leir faces, and discharged his revolver
<ith the most deadly effect. He shot two
ead almost instantly, and, it is said,
tUUy wounded a third. The other mado
Is escape.
The little community of Stony Creek is
reatly stirred op over the matter, both
iot'ch and his ton being considered persctly
blameless in the matter. No arres's
ave yet been made. The elder lioach is
till suffering from his bruises, which
ere very severe. He is a well known
inner and a man of family. Hlsstanding
i the community is good, though he is
ut possessed of much property.
The reporter's informant?, singularly

There is little now to report In the loa
nail situation. The mills are still runnin
along with feeders in charge of the m<
chines. The same plan has keen adopts
at a few other places. The Terra Haut
Expreuof Wednesday says: "No ad vane
was made yesterday by tho nailers towan
an acceptance of the announced reduction
from the 21-cont card" rate. An informs
meeting was held, but nothing was deter
minod as to positive action, although 1
was tacitly understood that if no way ou
of tho difficulty could be found to-day thi
nailers wonld take thoir tools from thi
chop. The feedoniclaim that their friend
the nailers hare been observing towan
them of late a conciliatory spirit wholly a
variance with their former treatment o
the fenders. Efforts have been made dallj
of late to induce the feeders to assemble
In conference with the nailers for tho pur
pose of working oat a mutually agreeable
understanding. But the feodera remair
inexorable and claiming that they have
too better of the nsiiers' association, art
determined to make the most of their op
portunities."
The Ironton JUptUr says: "Kelly's mill

heaters and sheet rollers at Belfont were
notified to take away their toola if they
utill refuted to work at the redaction,
which they did on Monday. A nenae of
Rood feeling between the workin^men and
the mill owners characterized this important
step. These men are now discharged
from the employ of the Balfont company.
The latter eipacta to stirt the mill at once,
perhaps this week, putting the machines
in the hands of feeders, of which it is understood
they havo a list who are ready to
work."
The Mingo iron and naii works were to

silent on the subject.
A TAt.K WITH A XAILEIt
Wlilch DUoIoms Soma Pertinent Facti
Heretofore Uopiloted.
A reporter met a nailer yesterday whom
he knew to be pretty well posted on matters
generally, and especially the workings
of his trade and the trades related to
it After a few wonls about tho weather
and minor topics, the Ixtsluoexcek man
asked hiaopinlon concerning the prapect
of an early resumption of the nail bnsinew.
41 Well," said be; "they are not at all
flattering, but I consider them as good as
they would be were there no strike
or other-Uifllenlty on hands. Yon see
there are a good many of the manufictnrers
who do not care to operate, their factories
now for various reasons. It is not eo
profitable to ran (taring the heated term,

making extensive preparations for the
manufacture of steel, others are building
gas furnaces to take the place of the old
style ones, and still others are making
extensive repairs aud building additions
to their mills; aud on the whole; considering
the very moderate deaiade for nails,
they are,according to tbo agreement made
in Cincinnati, either lying idle or trying
the feeder experiment.
"What will bo the final result of opening
the factories to the feeders?"
"Well, it will be just this: In a few
months, say tho latter end of this yesr,
the managers who have tried the experiment,
will be fullysotisfied that their vouture
has been a practical as well as a
financial failure. As. to the fooders who
have taken jobs, their actions bespeak
their .character, and if they were nailers
they would not bo alio wed to ran machines
in any of these factories. The manly portion
of tho feeders number UO percent, und
aro all with the nailers for the 21 cent
cord, nnf they will not be duped by the
manufacturer who will come with the
olive branch In his hand professing to
bring pence in a time of trouble, bnt who
will really slay them one by one as soon
as they have carried their purpose and
brought peace to him."
"Are there many eastern nails sold in
western markets V"
"Only when a fslrike is on hands,
and when the western stock has been exhausted.
Daring our trouble three yeore
ag-), when nails were selling at from $3 to
$o per keg, the eastern men emptied their
warehouses Into the western market,
but as soon as our factories resumed there
were no more eastern nails run in the
West."
"Well, how about western nails in the
east?"
"Our manufacturers Bqll largely In the
east, many car loads of nails being consigned
to Now York and Baltimore, and
some even to Boston."
"What effect would it have on the eastern
nailers if the western manufacturers
should succeed in enforcing the Cincinnati
scale?'!
'They would have to accept a lika reduction,
or the manufacturers would be
compelled to close their mills indefinitely,

not got out of the business: noitber will
they ask their employes to work for leu
money. Nailing baa reached bed-rock in
the But, and the manufacturers well know
that another turn ol the screw will make
a heroic striker out oI the biggest coward
that over (iced a Wad atone.
Uere the reporter was handed a letter
postmarked Harriaburg, Pa., which among
other things stated that the workmen ol
[our ol the mills in that vicinity had held
a joint meeting and decided to send, il
necessary, Ihty percent of their earning)
to the leaders of the western strike.
Said the reporter's Informant: "Y?a see
they too understand the meaning of the
enforcement of the Cincinnati scale as
well as do their empioyors. It Is nothing
but a gigantic effort to force the East out
ol thtfmarket entirely, and to accomplish
this M scheme, noileni, rollei*, helleU
and all the hands ia the mills will U
forced to work for a pittance. The East
era manntacturera are at a disadvantage
In making nails. Whr.the difference?!
wagea in the Eait and West does not cove
the difference in the cat o1 coal alone, t<
av nothing o! the difference in freigh
toils to Western inarketa."
In answer to another question the naile
'drew a letter from his breast pocket am
holdinK It np said, "This Is tho wedge tha
wiU split th em from one end to the other.'
The letter referred to, when held np
was tonrnl to be written under the print
ed beading of an Eastern nail firm, bat th
written matter was mostly concealed so a
to make It impossible for the reporter t
dlstiiigtiub Ita entire contents.
Upon being asked bow the nailers wer
prepared to stand a strike the speaker re

broken to-day and the mill pipe attached

A leading official of the Amalgamated
Association made a tour to Lawrenceville
to-day on a mission of peace. He visited
the idle sheet workers and advised them
to call a meeting and endevor to agree upon
some terms to submit to the manufacturers
with a view of settling the breach
between them. All members of that craft

At noon the official] stated that the prospects
