As Mr.Watson mentioned the name of the secretary of state, a portrait of the Maine statesman was unveiled. The effect was magical. The 500 delegates were on their feet in an instant, and cheer after cheer resounded through the hall for several minutes.

The Dominion Government Refuses to Pry Into Uoodling Affairs—They Fear the Result. The Rumor Again Afloat That Stanley May Dissolve Parliament. Mercler Talks. Jewish Associations Vigorously Col* onlzlng the Hebrews in America. OTTAWA, Ont., Sept. 25.—The govern ment voteid down Lister's motion for a committee to investigate the charges pre ferred by him against Postmaster Gen eral Haggert by a majority of 24. The evidence in the possession of the Liberal party is raid to be most criminating. Thus, the government feared the result of an investigation. The rumor has been revived that Lord Stanley had intimated his intention of dissolving parliament unless Premier Abbott can satisfactorily explain the serious charges formulated and in many instances proven against the government or members of the administration dur ing this session. Premier Mercier's reply to Lieutenant Governor Angers respecting the Baie des Chaleurs railway scandal was brought down in the senate by Premier Abbott. Premier Mercier justifies the payment to Contractor Armstrong. Re garding the Pecaud incident he says: "It is evident that without this incident no one would have thought of making any insinuations. This incident is a very regrettable one, and it is my duty to condemn most severely the strange bar gain made between these two parties and if my colleagues or myself had had any cognizance of it, all negotiations would have been stopped, and no doubt it was this knowledge that caused them to keep this transaction so secret, when it would have been so easy for Arm strong to notify the ministers of the ex tortion of which he was a victim." THIS THEIR PROMISED LAND. Russian Jem All Being Assisted to Get to the United States. LONDON, Sept. 25.—The Jewish Colo nization association, although formed but a few days, has already taken hold vigorously, and the object of settling the poor Russian Jews in the United States is to be pursued as rapidly as pos sible. The association has come to the conclusion to send nearly all the Jewish exiles to the United States, and to secure their landing by all lawful means. The Jews will be settled, as far as possible, in agricultural colonies, but it is not ex pected that they will confine themselves to the country. Their right to go into any lawful business will be vindicated, if necessary through legal proceedings. It is claimed that the United States has room enough for all the Jews that will emigrate from Russia and the opportu nities for profitable business are not equalled in any country. The associa tion will, therefore, for the present, wholly confine its attention to sending Russian Jews to the United States and supporting them there. A St. Peters burg dispatch says that the czar thinks seriously of sending the Jews in large numbers to Siberia. They will not be deported as convicts, but are to be pre sented with land and forbidden to re turn to Russia. THE CHINESE RIOTS.

Rio GRANDE, Tex., Sept. 25.—The lat est reports received from Garcia and his band are to the effect that he is closely pursued by Mexican troops. The revo lutionists are in the vicinity of Camargo.
