New York, Oct. 24 One of
the largest mass-meetings ever
held in this city crowded Cooper
Union tonight. The meeting
was held under the auspices of the
state democratic committee and
the principal speaker of the even
ing was Senator David B. Hill.
Long before the hour set for the
opening of the proceedings, crowds
began to gather abo.ut Cooper
Union, and within a few minutes
after the doors to the hall were
thrown open every seat was occu
pied, every aisle was jammed and
hundreds had to be turned away
unable to gain admission.
Baltimore, Md , Oct, 24. The

J. F"ord, a prominent citizen of
Worth county, was shot and in
stantly killed by his cousin, Dr.
Ashton T. Ford, Tuesday night at
6 o'clock. It appears that the
tragedy grew out of the sickness
of little Ilene, the daughter of W.
J. Ford, and her treatment by Dr. j
Ford. Ilene did not improve as
fast as her father thought she
ought to have done, and he called
to her bedside another physician..

Tallahassee, Fla., Oct. 24
About 6 pm. Tuesday, while re
turning from a fishing trip to Dick
erson's Bay, Mr. Dukes, from
near Thomasville, Ga., shot himself
accidentally while attempting to
take his gun from the back of his
wagon. He received the load in
his breast, and died instantly.
The question of granting the
privilege of establishing markets
in different parts of the city for
the sale of fresh meats is now before
the city council. Some tbree years
ago the city built the union market
at a cost of about $3600, and bond
ed the city td do it.
Since that time the market has
been netting the city an annual in
come of $600 per annum, or 10 per
cent on 6000, which is a neat lit
tle sum lo go into the city's coffers1.
Now several parties have the idea
that they could make money if they
had the privilege of establishing
small markets in different parts of
town and three or four applications
are now before the council for per
mits. One has already been granted to
open a market out near the old ex
position grounds. It is feared that
to permit these markets to be
opened will practically breakup
our present market, which is a
credit to the city.
