THURSDAY, SEITEMBER 13, 1S70.
Elsewhere we give the proceedings of
Thursday. Tiie Convention met again yes
terday, and completed the ticket, adopted a
platform, and adjourned at one o'clock. We
conclude our report. For Governor. Jainc?
M. Harvey received 124 vote?, D. It.
Anthony 43 and Thos. A. Oslwni 23. Tiie
Leavenworth delegation was divided ojt this
ue?lion, as it had been on Congress. Union
would have given success for One position or
the other. But rule or ruin was the fixed
tiolicy. The delegates from other Counties
had more than a kind and generous feeling
for Leavenworth. They were enthusi
astically our friends.
Let the rosjionsibility be placed where it
Motigs at home and when wc again hold
primary mectingi the jieoplc must attend
them ami control them. Wc have long
urged this jiolicy, and think this last defeat
will impress it upon the moot apathetic and
the mo-t stupid. And our meetings mast be
held in the day time, with no voters lnit reg-i-tereil
Republican?, and with one vote only
to one man. lira twee has lieen adopted by
the State Convention and will always lc the
rule hereafter in all our Conventions, State
ami County. The next reform inu.st be
meetings by daylight, for registered voters.
Gov. Harvey came forward and expressed
bis thanks in a very appropriate manner.
. Wc believed when we went to Topcka that
there was a coalition between Harvey and
Clarke. The vote showed that this was not
true, although nearly all of the Clarke men
crc Harvey men. But Gov. Harvey was
handsomely nominated by honest voters
from every part of the State, and his endorse
ment conies directly from the jieoplc. Wc
have never ald or published a line against
him, although we wanted another man.
For Lieut. Governor, P. P. Elder, of Ot
tawa, received 1)1 voUis, John C. Caricn
ter, 22, David Gordon, of Fort Scott, 41,
and E. S. Nichols, of Anderson, 17. Voles
were changed immediately and a hand
some majority given to Mr. Elder.
For Associate Justice of the Supreme
Court, David J. B rewer, of Leavenworth,
received 113, Judge Saffonl 30, Judge Ileal
.", lames O. lingers 22. Mr. Xcvison 13 and
D.ivM Urockway fi. No more jut tribute
could have been paid to the sterling ijuali
ics of tills able and pure man.
Foi Secretary of State, Win. II. Small-woo-I
received 139, Wm. M. Twine 21,
Thos. Moonlight 13. Small wood is another
needed and splendid victory. It
.should be remarked that all of
the colored delegates voted Jfor Sniall
wimm, although a colored man was running
against hint. And all of the colored dele
gates voted against Clarke. They have
made a manly and a noble record in the lir-t
State Convention to which they have lieen
Foi Auditor of State, A. Thoman was
re-nominated by acclamation. The people
arc siti-fied with Thoman and Harvey.
For Treasurer, John E. Hayes, of Olathe,
received SP-, Geo. Graham 48, and John
I'r.uiei", of Allen County, 31. Col. Hayes
I-t a leg in the war, but his held and heart
have never lieen damaged.
For Attorney General A. L. Williams,
commonly called "Archie," a man known
and honored all over the State, received 00
votes, J. B. Johnson, of Jefferson, 40, with
other votes for IL W. Cook, of Wyandotte,
and Wm. M. Matheny, of Baxter Springs.
1 1. D. McCarty, of this city, was nomi
nated for Superintendent of School, over II.
I). Fisher. There was considerable debate
over the vote, but it only developed Col.
John A. Martin presented the platform.
It wxs adopted with an amendment in favor
of the settlers on the undecded lands. Wc
shall publish it to-morrow.
Tiie following members of the State Cen
tral Committee were chosen from the Jttdi
dieial Districts, and three at large. 1. I).
U. Anthony, Leavenworth, Chairman, 2.
John A. Martin, Atchison, 3. II. T. Bee
man, Topcka, 4. Elijah Sells, Lawrence, 5.
Jacob Stotler, Emporia, Secretary, f. Sam
uel A. Manlovc, Fort Scott, 7. John W. .
Scott, lola, 8. B. J. F. Ilanna, Salina, 9.
T. B. Murdock,, Eldorado, 10. II. W.
Cook, Wyandotte, W. D. Mathews, Leav
enworth, W. B. McLane, Wyandotte,
and David Gordon, Fort Scott.
There are five journaliMsi n this
list, and, since this fight has been so largely
made by the press, the selection was eminent
" And thus the fight has ended and Honor
is no longer an exile in Kansas.
The Republican party lias freed itself
from the stains which defiled it, and it stands
forth now worthy of its name, its principles
and its mission. Our ranks at Topcka were
unbroken and unbreakable by bribes of
money and the promise of office by Pontc
roy and Clarke. It was the best Conven
tion ever held in the State; there were the
most brains and manhood in it. It was the
cm1odimcnt of the virtues of our glorious
State. And the ticket is worthy of
its parentage The majority for
it will le about forty thousand. The Legis
lature elected at the same time will send a
tnie man to the Senate, and the triumph
will lie driven in and clinched when old
IVineroy's term is out.
This is Heroic and Manly Kansas.
Let the wretched past be forgotten ! Wc
love our State aliove all others, and wc arc
proud of the work wc have done in redeem
ing it. The people are with us, and the fu
ture is full of auguries of victory as grand as
any won against the Border Itufiians
orthc-Kelels. A party shows its true strength
when it casts out its own devils.
It is pica-ant to leave the dusty and wretch
ed roads of jtcrsonal and political controversy
and rise to the tabic land of peace and whole
some sunshine. If any think wc made those
roads more dusty than they might have lieen,
they arc mistaken. We knew the men and
the meanness wc had to fight, and wc knew
the successful weapons to use in such a de
termined contest; they have been used, and
used unsparingly, more than two years. .The
present victory is perfect, and those that are
to follow it will be only a glorious rounding
of the grand result A fight against a Sena
tor and a Congressman in your own party,
with all the patronage of the Administration
to lack them, with about five hundred men
as Postmasters, census-takers, mail agents
and deputies of one sort or another, scattered
through the whole State, with rich pockets
to draw from and endless promises to make
such a fight had to be made in earnest, and
in the most vigorous, aggressive and defiant
manner. It was done, and done magnificent
ly. The majority against Clarke in the Con
vention was forty-four, his vote on test ques
tions ranging from seventy-six to seventy
eight. James M. Harvey, who is nominated
for Governor, is a poor man; D. P. Lowe,
who is nominated for Congress, is even
poorer, for he "docs not own a farm, as
Governor Harvey docs. Captain Smallwood,
our next Secretary of -State, is a
a practical printer who works at the case in
the office of the Wathena. Jieporler Nearly
all of our candidates are poor men, and the

Kantnt Rrpnbllntn IMntronn.
I. The Union Republican party of Kan
sas in delegate convention assembled, reaf
firms its adlicrancc to, and its faith in, the
principles of Universal Liberty, Justice and
Humanity for which it has, during ten years'
past, zealously and successfully battled, and
ii I ton which it has now securely, and forever
established the foundations of the govern
ment. I I. It jxiints with pride to a career of vic
tory unsullied by a single act of .National
cowardice, wrong, or inhumanity. It has,
during its administration of public affairs,
cruhcd the most gigantic rebellion that as
sailed the government, broken the shackles
of a race long enslaved and elevated them to
the dignity mul priviI.gcR of citizenship, en
acted and put into ojieration a beniiiccnt
homestead law, originated and perfected a
splendid system of highways across the con
tinent, secured the recognition of the doc
trine of expatriation, and in all things
proved itself equal to the sacred trusts com
mitted to its hands.
III. The Republican party, with such a
record, need to make no Haunting promises
of future fidelity to the great principles
iimn which its organization is based. But
this contention of delegates representing the
Republicans of Kansas, take occasion to ex
press the conviction and purjiose of the
1'lrsf. To maintain and defend the fruits
of its victory in the field; namely, the unity
of the Republic, the abolition of Slavery,
the enfranchisement of the colored race and
equal rights of all.
Stroud. To protect and preserve the fruits
of its victory in legislation: namely, the home
stead law in its whole letter and spirit, the
law of expatriation, and a wholesome system
of public, improvements.
IV. In the future as in the past the re
publican party will continue to advocate the
measures which will promote economy, na
tional honesty, domestic concord, and friend
ly relations with foreign powers to the end
that wc may have a government of laws and
not of men.
V. We cordially endorse tiie patriotie
honest, anil economical administration of
President Grant, and hail with satisfaction
the rapid reduction of the national debt,
u hieh its faithful collection of public reve
nues and Honest application oi them urougtit
VI. In the struggle now going on in Eu
rope our sviupathies are heartily with the
German ieopIc Their triumph is a victory of
littoral principles. We rejoice in the over
throw of the Napoleon dynasty, and earnest
ly prav that the war mav result in the or
ganization and permanent establishment of
a republican form of government in r ranee
and other Euroeau nations.
VII. That the Republican party stands
pledged to remove all disqualifications and
restrictions inqiosed upon the late rebels in
the same measure as the spirit of disloyalty
may die out anil may be consistent with the
safety of the loyal people.
VIII. In the distribution of public lands
and Indian .reserves, wc demand the full pro
tection of the rights of settlers, and the rcss.
ervation of the 16th and 36th sections to
which the State is entitled for educational
ptiriMiscs. Wholesale grants of terri
tory to sicculafors and foreign corpor
ations arc unfavorable to the interests of
the community, ami inconsistent with the
olyects for which the national domain
should lie distributed. We especially con
demn the policy of disposing of Indian reser
vations to railroad or land monopolies, and
insist that such lands lie undeniably opened
to actual settlement, at no more than one
dollar and twentv-five cents per rcre
J. T. Voss, of Crawford County, offered
the following resolution, which was amended
on motion of J. R. Hallowell, of Cherokee,
and parsed unanimously as follows:
ikWn.-o', That the policy of granting sub
sidies of public lands to capitalists and rao
nojHilics is condemned, and that wc repiidi
ate the action of certain of our republican
representatives in Congress in the sale of the
Cherokee Neutral Lands.

than in the morning.
The Topcka band marched up the street
playing a lively tunc, and on entering the

the Convention oiencd they played two or
three tunes. '
After the Convention was called to order
it was stated that the Committee on Creden

time. So, on motion, the Convention took
a recss of one hour and a half.
AFTER THE RECESS.
The Convention was not called together
till five minutes licforc six, when the Chair

Mr. Legate said ho understood the cause
of this attempt to delay action. He ( Legate)
had often been in the same condition that
Mr. Potter was in. The object, and the onlv
olgcct, was to delay, and, if possible, break
up the convention.
Mr. Potter said that the assumptions and

A good deal of excitement took place at
this time Mr. C. G. Foster, of Atchison,

Horror of the Nletrr or Ntrnsbnra-.
Cable Sicclal to the New York Herald.
Before Strasburr, Sejit. 5, via Ixmdon,
Sept. 7. The first orders were to invest the
city in such a manner that no considerable
amount of provisions could enter, and to
prevent any communication lietween the
city and the outside" world, and to accom
pany the same with not too destructive a
iximbardmcnt. This moral pressure had no
effect upon the Governor, and a siege in force
was commenced, and a third parallel
opened. ' ' o
What destruction ensued! The avenues
were filled,, as if a 'hurricane had passed
over the city. The cathedral and public
buildings were partially destroyed. The
streets were strewn with dead ami dying,
and magnificent homes were in ruins. One
shell burst in a school of little children and
seven little girls were instantly killed.
The suburlw suncrcd fearfully, and the in
habitants of whole parishes fled, losing
everything. To prevent a recurrence of the
disorders which occurred, ' the following
order was issued by the commanding Gen
eral: In the buildings deserted by the inhabi
tants disorders of the most ruffianly character
have occurred, which cannot fail to reflect
gravely on the discipline and honor of
troops. It is expected the officers will take
most energetic measures to prevent any re
currence of- the same. They will have the
localities strictly watched, and icriiiit no one
to enter, still less to plunder. Resistance to
this order will be encountered with measures
of the utmost severity, and Mich brutal ruf- j
nans may be shot down on tfic sjiot.
Senator Morton recently delivered a
powerful political address at Terrc Haute,
Ind., in which he exhibited 1hc following
splendid record of the Republican party:
It abolished slavery; it established univer-
,sal suffrage; it gave liberty to all sections; it
protected the civil rights of all men; it de
feated repudiation; it give Republican gov
ernment to the South; it built the Pacific
Railroad: it passed the homestead law; it
opened new roads into the uninhabitated
public domain; it secured pensions and
homesteads to the Union soldiers; it has re
duced the national debt 140,000,000 in
sixteen months, thus certainly securing the
extinction of the wMWe debt In less than
fifteen years; it lias reduced taxation $80,
000,000"in"one bill; it has passed a revenue
tariff with full incidental protection to Amer
ican labor; it has reduced the prospective
interest on the national debt.
In contrast he presented the following
truthful picture of the Democratic party:
Sympathy with the Rebellion! Devotion
rto Slavery ! Hostility to Universal Suffrage!
Persecution ol t be. r reed I'eoplel Opposi
tion to the Civil Rights Bill! Favorable to
to Repudiation! Adverse to the Reduction
of the Debt! Votes in Congress against Re
ducing Taxation! Pnj"diced again-t the
Union Soldier! Committed to Low'Wages
and Free Trade!

The Great Victory. At-10 :S0 U-t
night the despatch from Topeka, announcing
the defeat of Clarke and the nomination of
Judge Low, was received fn this city, and in
a few moments was posted upon tlte Journal
bulletin board. An eager "crowd' devoured
the intelligence, and in an incredibly short
time the news spread through the city. At
once the German band was brought ont, bon
fires were lighted, and the rejoicing was gen
oral. Never before since the foundation of
Lawrence was such enthusiasm manifested.
Late as the hour was, a great multitude
assembled in the streets, and surged up and
down, cheering for Low, and making the air
resound with their.manuestations ol pleasure
at the Great Victory. Lemmnee Journal.

Tills horrible' calamity had not been un
anticipated, and efforts had been made, by
M)lieeman Brown aiid other officials, to warn
those inside of the building; but only a or-
tiou were saved. The extent of the loss of
life has not yet been fully ascertained, but
further tiarliculars of probable fatalities will
lc found further on in' this account. One
cll'ccl of this fall was to create a anic of

General blame is now attached to the
architecture of the building, safety having
lieeu sacrificed to licauty by the construction
of a very light and inflammable roof, instead
of one plainer and lire proof. The danger
dics not seem, however, to have been ap

though its awful grandeur would have been
tar more apparent if the Uickgrouud had
Ih-cii darker. As it was, the fire occurred in
flic 'daytime, and extended late into a moon
light nidit, hi that the conflagration
was apparently shorn of much of its fiery
lie'rccness. The flames ran up walls, sped
along cornices, wrapping in their fierce em
brace building after building until the whole
magnificent block was an iiilmcitsc pyre,
ollering, as it were, a propitatory sacrifice
to the fire fiend. As a wall would crumble
and fall with n crash, a stronger
flame would leap cxuIUngly from
the pvre, a. magnificent cloud of
parks would spread itself for blocks around,
nd the mighty throng would lie hushed in
ic iireciice ofthc mighty spectacle It was
glioiilish. In the presence of the dread cle
ment at its work of destruction, man and
his ingenuity seemed to sink into the meanest
insignificance About half jiast six,, the
front wall of FarwelPs store gave way, and
fell across the avenue with a crash like the
simultaneous discharge of a hundred lotter
ies. J he "ap produced hy the fall ilisclosed
:t mass of flame in the interior, feeding upon
the combustible material stored there, and
causing a sight of such brilliancy as is rarely
seen. Through the thick rising smoke, and
the duk of evening creeping on, the out
line of jagged walls left standing might be
seen, with here and there a broken and char
rid beam or a heated iron pillar clinging to
the swaying mass, and telling painfully of
what had been but a few hours before. The
corner wall was standing, and through each
window there was seen such an illumination
as, happily, seldom lights up such a build
Never, jicrhaps, in the history of this
city's (ires were such universal excitement
causal among all classes of woplc as was
witnessed last night. It is doubtful if there
was a single peson, living in anv quarter of
the city, who was not aware before nine
o'clock ofthc whereabouts of the mighty
conflagration, the reflection of which, if not
its flames, was visible for miles in every di
rection. It woufd !w impossible to arrive at
an intelligent estimate of the number of per
sons who were congregated In the neighbor
hood watching the fire with breathless inter
est. The cars and omnibtisses from all parts
of the city were crowded to excess, at every
trip, by persons desirousof reaching the scene
and the main avenues were thronged with
multitudes of pedestrians all moving toward
the central point of attraction. Even the
swain who makes his hebdomcdal call upon
his sweetheart, tucked her under his arm,
and the twain like everybody else, moved to
