"WoncEssTEii, ilas., Sept. 30, The Democratic Stale convention was called to order at 11:30 this mornig, Hon. P. A. Col lins in the chair. The chairman and secre tary of the convention were selected as temporarj- ofiiccs. The following resolu tions were submitted to the convention for consideration: Reaffirming the principle", of the national Democratic platform of 1884, aud endorsing President Cleveland's administration. We recognize and applaud the steadfast adherence of the president to his ante elec tion promises and the pledges made to the. people in 1884, in regard to civil service re form. The partisan abuses of Republican rule have been duly corrected; the quality and tone of the civil service throughout the country has been vastly improved; the power of appointment and removal has been used with moderation and restraint, manifestly inspired by a sincere desire to dispense public patronage and till the ofiiccs which belong to the people in a new and better spirit, based on the tolercnt regard for honest difference ol opinion-this is mstrikingand wholesome contrast to the vindictive ostracism of hi-; opponents practiced for nearly a quaitcr of a century by the Republican administra tions. We demand a judicious reform of the tariff all the necder? protection to cap ilal and labor engaged in the various in dustries can be assured under the revised scale of duties which will afford all the revenues required by the government, and relieve the great body of people of the heavy weight of taxation honest money must be maintained the gold ami silver coinage of the constitution and the circulating paper medium based on both coins and easily convertible into either, must be defended against all assaults; such a policy is essential to financial stability and mercantile products of the country. The citizens of Massachusetts have an abiding interest in the ocean fisheries whichfor generations have been cat rial on by her vessels and fishermen, while taxa tion, direct and indirect, is im posed mid a revenue drawn by the town, state and federal governments from the hardy fishermen who fish under her flag, we shall oppose all ellorts to admit rivals under a foreign ting to sell their fish free of duty and taxes in the markets of the L'uitcd States. Wc welcome the new era of organized labor; remembering the hist and earnest s'rugglc made by the Democrats of Mas sachusetts for a repeal of the tax on the poor man's ballot wc have the right to congratulate the workingmen that at last the Republican party has surrendered on this issue, and that an amendment abolish ing the poll lax qualification is on its way to the people. The platform then demands the abolish ing of convict labor aud certain reforms in state affairs and closes with an expression of regret over the losses of great men who havedied in the last year. Jas. Grinuel then took the platform and nominated Jno. P. Andrews, of Boston. for governor. The motion was put and earned amid cheers and music by bands. A motion to take an informal ballott was made and Chas. E. Endicott, of Boston, nominated Wm. E. Russell as candidate ' for goiernor, but Mr. ltussell declined. The motion for an informal ballot wa- j lost and 3lr. Andrews was nominated by j almost a unanimous vote. A committee , was appointed to nominate the remaining officers on the state ticket, after which an i adjournment was taken till 2:20. The balance of the state ticket, with the exception of lieutenant covernor, will lie as ' follows: Secretary of state, John R. Thavcr of t orccstcr. Treasurer, William Aspinwall of Brook lyn. Attorney general, William S. Cook of Sprincrfield. The platform presented was adopted w uhout debate. Frank iv. Foster was nominated for ik-u-tenant governor. Mr. Aspinwall declined to serve as a candidate for treasurer and Lewis Warner of Northampton was substituted. The convention then adjourned. Kinks Straightened. Lawrence, Kan.. Sept. CO. The state central committee of the Prohibition party having been called together to consider al legations in an equity proceeding on file in Uie district court of 'Douglas county, Kan sas, against C.

Martin, gov ernor of Kansas, do hereby, by virtue of the authority vested in me "by law, and in accordance with the recommendation of the live stock sanitary commission, declare and establish a quarantine against the intro duction into this state of all animals of the bovine species comiug from the state of Ohio and Illinois and from the ilominion of Canada, unless all such cattle arc quarantined at the point of entry for a period of ninety di:ys, and retained there until they shall receive a certificate of health signed by tho state veterinarian. In testimony wheieof, I have hereunto subscribed my iunv, and caused to bo af fixed the great seal of the state. Done at the city of Topeka, on the day and year first above written.

Miles' annual rojwrt embodying the story of the surrender of Geroninio has been received by the actiug secretary of war. Gen. Miles, it is said, reports that he accepted the surrender of the-savnirQ chief tain agreeing .is among the conditions that he should not lie surrendered to the civil authorities in Arizona for trial and that he sh uld be t:iken away from that vidnitv Tlic rqwrt shows'that Gcrooiino and his companions were not captured b it sur rendered conditionally, lie acknowledges that he promised the hosrUcs that they should not be turned over to the civil au thorities of Arizona and that their live should lc spared bv removing them from the country immediately ThU accounts for Gen. Miles' failure to obey the instnir tions of the war department, to ctuitino the hotiles at the nearest pa-t. The Star says: The fact that Gen Mil -s accepted a conditional surrender when the positive instruction of the government was that nothing but capture or unconditional surrender should determine Ukj Apnchr campaign mi-os i: very grave question f r the consideration of the president and v. rctnry of war. What the result will be can duly be conjectured, but unless there are sonic very extenuating circumstance- not apparent on the outside, a reprimand U the least that could Ik? exacted. The report show's that the hosttles uecr iK-'fore had Iwn driven to such a ttagp of desperation and that they could not have stood cut against the troops much longer, but, nevertheless, the war department would undoubtedly preferred the Indiin war to last another year rather than tic hostile should surrender on those terms It is said that Gen. Miles' campaign did not practically differ from that of Gen. Crook, and that the latter could have secured tin hostiles on similar conditions t those at cepted by Gen. Miles, last January, when Geroninio expressed a " w illing nCss to surrender, but escaped when ho found tint he could secure no as surance of safety from Gen. Crook. Gen Miles' reort is very long and in tcrtsting. He devoted a greater jKirtion 1 1 an account of the pursuit of Indians sinn ho took command. He shown how lm campaign differed from that of Gen. Crook the latter used friendly Indians to flhl the ho-tilw. while (Jen. Miles mirMiOd thorn The United States t;oup3 using a few In dians as trailers.
