Convention at Buffalo Indorses the ChV '. oago Platform and the Candidacy of Bryan and Bvwall la Bet- . - tlon Two Days. Buffalo, N. Y., Sept ' 17. James Hinckley, chairman of the state com mlttee, called the democratlo state convention to order at 18: JO p. m. Wednesday. Chairman Hinckley an nounced that the state committee had. selected State Senator Thomas F.. Grady, of New York, for temporary chairman. Mr. Grady started in at once with his address and soon roused hearty applause from the delegates and from spectators in the galleries. He eulogized the Chicago platform and ticket; condemned the gold democrats who participated in the Indianapolis convention and also said: "Yon differ from some who were for many years associated with you, using their pro fession of democracy as a mask under which to conceal the purely selfish character of their political actions and who are now leagued with your politi cal opponents, denouncing democratio principles, defying democratic author ity and aiding, so far as they may, to defeat the democratic candidates." During Chairman Grady s speech there were Bhouts of approval from delegates and lots of noise from the Tammany warriors in the galleries. When Mr. Grady finished he was given three cheers and a tiger. James V. Ridge way, of Kings, offered' a resolu tion indorsing the Chicago platform and its candidate. This resolution and a number of others were referred to the committee on platform; Commit tees on credentials, rules and organi zation were appointed and the conven tion adjourned until 10 a. m. Thursday. The committee on permanent organ ization selected Hosea H. Rockwell, of Chemung, for permanent chairman. The committee on credentials mot and elected Charles M. Bulger, of Oswego, for chairman. The committee on reso lutions met at the Genessee. Bernard J. York, of Kings, was made chairman. The committee was confronted with a huge stack of resolutions and proposed planks. The committee on resolutions put in several hours' work and agreed to pre sent a platform which Indorses the Chicago platform as a whole and pledges the support of the democracy of the state to Bryan and SewalL It will be adopted with a whoop. Just how much this action may aid the democratio national ticket is ;a question. There are men here who eay that this Is but a silver-plated con vention and that it oilers Mr. Bryan only empty honors, as the sound money democrats predominate in this state, and the men who openly indorse the regular ticket for the sake of reg ularity will knife it, or trade it, or dump it at the polls in November. There nre many men here who are sincere in their silver views, and tliey are loudly protesting against the man ner in which the ("""' " i is run ning the con ven tii 'ace they object to the i ihn Boyd Thacher, of Aic.... , is a sound money man and made a strong gold speech at the June convention in Saratoga. Next they object to Frank Campbell, ex-comptroller of tho state, who is slated for national committee man. Mr. Campbell is associated with the banking interests and is suid to be a sound money man at heart Tho members of the populist commit tee who nre hero with authority from the people's party convention to effect a fusion with democrats, waited pa tiently ull day for a conference, but without success. James W. Hinckley declined re-election to the state committee from his, tho Eighteenth district, though urged to do so by the members of the delega tion. A. II. Green was elected in his place. A conference of anti-Thacher delegates was held and James W. Rldgeway was urged to stand in oppo sition to the Albany man. He declined and ' declared himself out of the con test The Albany delegation re-elected ex-Senator Norton Chase to the com mittee without opposition. Chairman Hinckley . wired to Senator Murphy asking him to accept the place on the national committee which would be vacated by the resignation of W. V. Sheehan. He received the following reply: "I would not accept under any conditions. I favor Frank Campbell for the place." The cosnjnlttee on electors organized by electing Senator Charles P. Mc Clelland, of Westchester, as chairman. The following electors-at-large were chosen: Robert P. Bush, of Horse heads; Ben j. Wood, of Xew York. Dis trict electors were alee selected. Buffalo, N. Y., Sept 18. The sec ond day's session of the democratic state convention began at 11:02 Thurs day. The report of the committee on credentials was adopted. The commit tee on persnanent organization selected Hon, II. H Rockwell, of Chemung, for permanent chairman and the tempo rary secretaries were made permanent Mr. Rockwell was cordially greeted on taking'the ehair and made a lengthy address. Among other things he said: ' After the adjournment of the national demo cratic convention at Chieaaa a distinguished ex-governor of this state, who participated In Its proceedings but who has since fled to the oave of Adullam at Indianapolis, Is reported to have said that "the platform was Just suited to the candidates and the candidates to the plat form." And although the remark was made by way of disparagement, yet from the expres sions of sentiment which we hare already had here and from the instruction! which we have received from our constituents, I believe that the platform and candidates are notonly suited to each other, but are suited to She needs and requirements of the whole American people. We are democrats and not revolutionists. Rather apply the uaine to those engaged In the attempt to destroy one-half of the money of tho world, thereby, as Baron Rothschild said, accomplishing a destruction of values without any compensation, than to ui who are trying to return to the monetary system which prevailed In our country for moro than 00 yours, a system founded and approved by Hamilton, JefforRon unrt all the early statesmen of the republic. But it 1s sIro charged that we arerepuclmtlon IstR. Ihcy siiy that we are in fuvor of 68-cent dcllave to ho used In the payment ! debts. Our answer Is that a return to the system of bi metallism which existed prior to 1878 means that gold and silver shall be kept at a parity of value according to the legal ratio. Mr. Rockwell condemned Mark Hanna as an oppressor of labor and a foe to unions thereof and said that all trusts and monopolies were supporting McKlnley. B. J. York, of Kings, read the report of the committee on platform. It was as follows: The democratlo party of the stale of New York, In convention assembled, unreservedly Indorses the platform adopted by the demo cratic party at the national convention held In Chicago on July T, 1803; cordially approves ths nominations there made; pledges to William J. Bryan and Arthur Sswall Its hearty and so tlrs support and deolares as Its deliberate judgment that never In the history of the dem ocratlo party has a platform been written which embodies mors completely the Interests of the whole people as distinguished from those wbo seek legislation for private benefit, than that given to the country by the national dem ocratlo convention of 1890. We denounce those provisions of the Raines liquor law which deprive municipalities of the right to restrict and regulate the liquor traffic within reasonable limits prescribed by law and which divert excise monies from local treasur ies, where Ihey properly belong, Into the state treasury, In order to make good deficiencies la state revenues caused by the extravagance of republican legislatures that otherwise would need to be supplied by additional direct taxa tion, whloh fasten upon the people a gigantic state political machine, breeding corruption and Intimidation and which compel the grunt lug of licenses to persons or places of notori ously bad character. If entrusted with power we pledge our representatives to enact a Just and reasonable excise law, restoring the prin ciple of local supervision and regulation, con ferring upon each locality tho control and use of Its own excise revenue with which to reduce Its local taxation and guaranteeing to each municipality the determination of its own ex cise legislation within proper limitations pre scribed by general law. We arraign the administration of Gov. Mor ton and recent republican legislatures for their extravaiant legislation, whereby tho stnto taxes have been largely increased and the bur dons of tho pooplo augmented. Instead of re forms which were promlsod. there havo been flagrant corruption and misrule. Instead of economy thcro hns been prodigality: instead of retrenchment there has been increased ex penditure; Instead of legislation for tho people there have been protection and favoritism for trusts and monopolies. We charge that the ad ministration of the office of superintendent of public works by tho present Incumbent has been notoriously extravagant and corrdpt, ro gnrdleFS of law and defiant of public decency. Tho republican legislnturo has multiplied state commissions. Increased salartis, per mitted unnecessary and ruinous special legis lation almost without limit: suppressed free dom of legislative debate; held secret sessions In violation of the constitution and exhibited the grossest partisanship, even to the extent of legislating cut of oalce the non-partisan man ners of the Hate hospitals and other charita ble Institutions of this state. We reaffirm our adherence to the principle cf homo rule for municipalities. We especially denounce tho ropublicun policy which suno- cities and another for republican cities, ar.dwe insist upon substantially uniform lugirtution for all cities, roi,-ar.t!u!i3 of partisan considera tions. Wo protest agilnst t.ho repmtOil violation by republican stato officials of tho constitution and laws which guarautee preference In ihe public service to honorably discharged soldiers and sailors ot Vre Union army and navy, whore by and by various pretenses and excuses vet. erans have been rou.oved from positions with out cause, in order to muko roox for political favorites. Wo Omand the strict and honest enforcement of tho lawi In their behalf. Wo recommend tho building nud mainte nance of a uniform system of good roads throughout tho stato; the expense therocf to bo equitably divided between tho state and tho respective localities. We recommend such a modification and re vision of the employes' liability and anti-con. gpiruey laws as will offer iqull opportunity nr.rt securo oxiK't justice to emiluytH and em ployers. Upon thesj principles and policies appliov ble to state affairs, wo invito the co-r.peratlon of all good eliteons, to thu end Hint a butter lid. ministration of thi: affairs of our state may bo obtained; that local Belf-povernraent may be reestablished; that the principle of home rule for cities may be unforced; that fair and hon est legislation may be enacted; that lower tax rates may be secured and the true woliare, prosperity and happiness of the people may b9 promoted. The platform was adopted after a few protests. A telegram was received from William P. Sheehan announcing that he had resigned as member of the national democratic committee from New York. Samuei L. Tllden, jr., offered a reso lution which was adopted authorizing the state committee to fill all vacancies on the ticket. Nominations for governor were thoa declared iu order. Albany county was called and Louis l'rntt, of Albany, pre sented the name of John Boyd Thacher, mayor of Albany. When Alleiranv was ralloil Judo-A Frank Downs, of Binghamton, came to uie iront ana presented the name of William Sulzer. Jefferson county presented the name of Wilbur F. Porter. Thacher was nominated on the first ballot, the vote standing: Thacher 888, Sulzor 90, Sorter 20. The nomination was then made unanimous. Col. Danforth presented the name of Wilbur F. Porter, of Jefferson county, for lieutenant governor. W. B. Keld. of Kings, moved that the entire vote of the convention be cast by the secre tary for Mr. Porter. It was so ordered and Judge Porter was declared the nominee for lieutenant governor. Moses Shire, of Erie, made a peeoh nominating Robert X Titus for asso ciate judge of the court ot appeals. This nomination was made by accla mation and the convention adjourned. llurdarer to be Extradited. " v. Woodstock, Ont, Sept. 18.

DYNAMITE AND BtJLLETSl Strikers at Leadville, CoL, Use These Weapons. Miners ar Attacked at Night by Mob and Flva Hen r Klllect, All bat On of tho Victims Bains' of tho AtUeklns; Forty. Lkadvixle, Col., Sept. 23. Five men lost their lives In attacks upon the Co ronado and Emmett mines at 1 o'clock Monday morning, four being of the at tacking party and the fifth a city flre- ,man who was shot down while in the discharge of his duty. The dead: Jerry O'Keefe. foreman Hose Co. No. t, shot through the body. Bert Meier, sged SO, face riddled with buck shot. James Benson, sged 40, shot In abdomen. John Maboney, shot in the abdomen. William Hit-gins, shot In the abdomen. ' It is believed a number, variously es timated at from six to 50, were wounded during the attack upon the barricaded miners, but they were quickly taken away and secreted, even the physicians attending them being careful to make no report of their patients. Of the be sieged men no one was injured, except one slightly wounded in the foot as he escaped from the Coronado mine. That there was to have been trouble Sunday night was clearly understood by the mine operators and many of the miners. : The report was that the Em mett mine, being located farther out of tho town limits than the Coronado, was to be assaulted and tho men there were warned to be watchful. At the Coronado two officers were on duty and they were warned to be vigilant, while within all preparations were made for a warm reception of the strikers. Until midnight no evidences of trouble were apparent. The streets were deserted and all was quiet. But midnight was Evidently the time set by the assailants to make an attempt to stop the Coronado mine from work ing. The residents near by were warned to get out of harm's way. The lir&t indication of danger to tho 20 men within was tho dropping of a dark object within the enclosure near the oil tank. There was a moment of fire and then a terrific detonation. It was a stick of giant powder. Another stick followed the first and then a third and with these a fusilado of small arms. Volley after volley was poured in from both sides. Tho high outer fence and the inner barricade were de signed wisely, for no one within was Injured. The giant powder soon ig nited the woodwork, broke the pipe which convoyed the crude fuel oil from the reservoirs to the battery of boilers and, the oil Igniting, great sheets of flame illuminated the scene. There, amidst a rain of bullets and giant powder, with the immediate danger of the oil tank and steam boilers explod ing, tho 20 men fought as only men under such conditions could fight. The shooting continued uatil 1:45 o'clock, when the flames of the engine house spread so rapidly that all of the defending party had to taka refuge in a tunnel under the cribbing, where they made a last stand for defense. They were caught like rats In a trap. lt was certain death to remain, for fire would consume them even if they were not murdered by the enemy. There was only one alternative and they took it Home leaped the fence, others took tho trestle across the street, running tho gauntlet of a galling fire to the dump, where they made their escape. The explosion of giant powder and the rattle of fcmall arms aroused the whole city and the glare of tho flames brought the fire department to the scsne. One line of hose was laid and Jerry O'Keefe, foreman of Hose Com pany No. 2, slipped the nozzle, when a bullet fired from behind sent O'Keefe to the . earth, bleeding from a mortal wound. Armed men were hidden in various places about the Coronado shaft and prevented the firemen from work ing. , At this' moment an armed force ap peared on the scene. Citizens of the town, each armed with a Winchester, came to protect life and property. Then commenced the battle with the flames. There were plenty of hands to' move the hose now, and the depart ment could work without hindrance. The attacking party disappeared. But while the Coronado was the scene of excitement the 80 men at the Emmett mine were in danger. About 2:30 o'clock the sound of .musketry was heard in the direction of the Emmett mine and soon the thunder of dis charged riant powder followed. The fight made by the defenders was So terrific that the assailants were glad to retire. The only damage done at the Emmett was the destruction of a fence enclosing the iroperty. That several were wounded is certain. ' The Coronado shaft is the only evi decce of the terrific straggle made just before dawn. The boilers, steam engines, fans and powerful hoists are a mass ot tangled ruins; pipes and wisiea sron lying over tne massive machinery In tangled confusion. The Coronado property is surrounded by small residences. Three of these were destroyed. The band : of dynamiters had not 'overlooked the Maid of Erin. During .the fight of the early morning aomo one set the shaft house afire. Sam Cummlngs discovered it and extin guished the flames before serious dam age was dsue. ; ' The state militia, which has for the fourth time in two years been called put to stop rioting in mining camps, is arriving and will merely do patrol duty, for there is now no evidence of rioting in the entire camp. 1 Six Hundred Were Killed, : Constantinople, Sept. 22. -The porta has received an official report stating that 600 persons were killed in the re cent disturbances at Eguin, in the Di abekir district of Armenia.

Numbers of tho Armenians succeeded In making their escape to the mountains. The town o!

Annnsl Krport of tho CnmmlMlooor of Pension Miom that the Number of Fob Inner la lm ro iSliif. Washington, Sept S3. Commis sioner of Pensions Murphy has sub mitted to the secretary of the interior his annual report on the operations of the pension bureau for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1800. It shows that 40,874 new pensioners were added; 8,873 restored who had been previously stopped, making a total of 44,247; the losses for various reasons aggregated 44,008. The whole number of pension ers on the rolls June 80, 1890, were 070,608. The commissioner states that it may now be safely assumed that the roll from this time on will show a steady diminuitlon. unless congress should enact still more liberal pro visions. The rate of mortality of the pensioners, particularly those who served through the war of the rebel lion, is rapidly increasing. - Disallow ances of . pensions during the year amounted to 97,280, most of them being applications for increases. The amount disbursed was 8138,214,000, a decrease of 81,592,000. Upon assuming charge of the bureau tho commissioner directed that prefer ence be given original applicants, giv ing second place to those vvhose names were already on the rolls and who are seeking additional pension. The busi ness of the office hns greatly Increased in correspondence, which delays the settlement of claims, as it requires a largo clerical force to answer inquiries. The amount appropriated for pension payments, 8140,000,000, was found to be more than sufficient There was at the close ot the fiscal year an unex pended balance of 81,790,000. The commissioner adopts the esti mates of his predecessors for 1898, namely $140,000,000 for pensions and 81,828,000 for other expenses. The pay ment of pensioners by check the com missioner thinks is better than pay ment in person. Instructions are now being prepared by the medical referee which will in sure to every pension applicant the benefit of the experience of three mem bers of the board of surgeons, except where the claimant expressly waives his right and agrees to an examination by a less number. It is Intended to detail experts from this division to visit and instruct tho 1,885 boards in the country as to uniformity of exam ination in tho construction of medical certificates and to prevent errors in rating. The act of .Tammy 5, 1898, increas ing Mexican veterans' pensions from 83 to 812, wlinso names wore then on tho roll, docs not, tho commissioner says, make any provision for the pen sions of any whose names might ba subsequently recorded, and he recom mends thnt the 813 increase be granted to all Mexican survivors who are totally disabled and in destitute cir cumstances. SILVER FOR A BATTLE SHIP. A Beautiful Gift Comes to the Officers ot the Finest and Most Powerful of Uncle Sam's Meii-of-lYur. New Youk, Sept. 23. The battle ship Indiana was yesterday presented with a handsome silver service and library by the citizens of the state in whose honor the crack fighter of the navy is named. The handsome silver set was spread out on tho quarter deck aft, an.l gatherer! about it was a distin guished company of navnl and military men, a number of citizens of Indiana and handsomo women. Grouped about on tho turrets and the sides of the ship were the jack tars in their natty cob turned, all making a striking scene. One of the features of the day was a speech by ex-President Ilarrison, who was among tho guests. Nearly all the official party, including Gov. Matthews, of Indiana, cx-President Harrison and Assistant Secretary of the Navy Me Adoo, boaale.l tho dispatch boat Do! phin early in the morning and sailed down the bay. The ships had been formed in column and as the Dolphin passed through the flag ship New York gave a salute of 17 guns, the Dolphin responding with 84 guns. The Dolphin proceeded out, giving tho guests a little excursion out to sea. She returned shortly after 2 o'clock and transferred her guests to the Indiana. In the meantime Admiral liunce had como aboard from the flag ship and was received by Capt Evans, of the Indiana. The first party to come aboard from the Dolphin was ex-Presi dent Harrison. Tho moment he stepped on deck tho big guns of the whole fleet the Raleigh, Massachusetts, Maine, Montgomery, Columbia, New York and Indiunu thundered out 21 guns, the Indiana's band playing "Hail to the Chief," while the sailors stood at quar ters and saluted. The guests, some 200 in all, formed a circle around the spot whero the silver servico was displayed. The ceremonies opened with a pre sentation address by Gov. Matthewa Gov. Matthews was followed by As sistant Secretary of the Navy McAdoo, who accepted the service in behalf of his department and of Capt Evans. Charles R. Williams, of Indianapolis, the prime mover in starting the popu lar fund for the service, was the next speaker, and at the conclusion of hit address ex-President Ilarrison made a patriotic speech. Mr. Ilarrison then proposed three cheers for "the good ship, the officers and men and the flag above here," and the cheers were heartily given. Then Capt. Evans stepped forward, saying: "My lads, three cheers for. the men who gave us this silver," and the Indiana resounded with the shouts of the crew. Burglar Hilled by a Policeman. New York, Sept 22. Officors Becker and Curey saw three men, John O'Urien, William Walsh and a third whose name is unknown, leave a cigai storo at US5 Broadway on Sunday.
