Sheridan's Remains Nearing the Tomb. • THE VIGIL AT ST. MATTHEW'S. Maxwell's Death Watch—The Blame Blowout Without Blame. General Items. I Associated Press Dispatches to theHSRALD.I Jersey City, August 9.—The Sheridan funeral train reached here at 7:30 this morning and left at 8:20. Tne officials in charge, conductor, engineer, firemen and brakemen are all old soldiers who served under Sheridan. Philadelphia, August 9.—The funeral train bearing the remains of Sheridan passed through the city just before noon to-day. The passage was without a sin gle incident. Baltimore, August 9.—The train reached Baltimore at 2 p.m. A large gathering was at Charles street station, to do honor to the dead soldier. THE ARRIVAL AT WASHINGTON. Washington, August B.—The special train bearing the body of General Sheri dan and the funeral party arrived at the Boston and Ohio station from Nonquitt at 3:17 p.m. It was met by General Schofield and Lieutenant Sawyer Bliss and several of his staff, a guard of honor from the District of Columbia Order of the Loyal Legion, and Troop B, Sixth Cavalry, Captain Lawton in command. As the train slowed into the station nine sergeants of the Third Artillery, under command of Lieutenant Danes, marched up to the platform and formed in line. Soon after the train stopped Mrs. Sheridan stepped out, leaning on the arm of Colonel Sheridan. They were met by General Rucker and Miss Rucker, Mrs. Sheridan'B father and sister. They immediately entered their carriage and were driven rapidly away. Mrs. Sheridan was evidently deeply moved. As they left tbe station the ar tillery sergeants took the casket from the car and bore it to a gun caisson belong ing to the Third Artillery, which was draped with flags and festooned with crape. As the caisson bearing the body left the station, Troop B,6thCavalry,fell in line in front and escorted the procession up Pennsylvania avenue to Fifteenth street and St. Matthew's Church. As the body reached the door it was met by a pro cession of clergy and altar boys, singing the "Miserere." After the casket had been placed on the catafalque, the pre liminary burial service was recited, the choir singing a funeral hymn. THE DECORATIONS. The interior of the church was effect ively draped, a feature of the decorations being the American colors blended witli the sombre shade of heavy folds of crape. The fronts of both galleries were covered with large flags caught up 'at intervals with brown and soft bands of black. Above the entrance of the organ loft were grouped regimental and cavalry flags, fastened together by a knot of black, with black streamers. The altar was heavily draped. The can delabra and marble figures on either side were draped with black. Two silk American flags hung from the walls above the altar. The Cardinals throne on the left of the altar was appropriately covered and the front of the pulpit was concealed by heavy velvetand black, with deep silver fringe. A space had been made in front of the altar by the removal of four pews on either side of the main aisle, in the center of which stands the catafalque that was used in the memorial services for King Alfonso held in this church on the death of the King several years ago. The service concluded, the little com pany immediately left the church. Early to-morrow morning a requiem mass will be celebrated by Father Ker vick. This service is for the convenience of the family and friends of the illustri ous dead. THE WATCH WITH THE DEAD. A detail of two members of the Loyal •Legion, alternating every two hours, will remain with the body until the funeral at 10 o'clock Saturday morning. Among those invited to the funeral are President and Mrs. Cleveland, members of the Cabinet and the ladies of their families, the Judges of the Supreme Courts, Judges of the local courts, mem bers of the Diplomatic Corps, members of the Senate and House, and the elective officers of both Houses, all the members of the Catholic clergy in AVashington, all officers of the Army, Navy and Marine Corps stationed in Washington, twenty-five of the Grand Army of the Republic, twenty-five of the Loyal Legion, eighty members of the press, and a large number of personal friends of the family. MARKS OF RESPECT. The President this afternoon issued an order for the public buildings to be closed on Saturday, the day of Sheridan's fu neral. •New York, August 9.—A movement is on foot for holding requiem masses for General Sheridan simultaneously in the Catholic churcheß of the leading cities of the United States. THE GRAND ARMY'S TRIBUTE. Minneapolis, August 9.—Commander in-Chief Bea, of the G. A. R., to-day is sued General Order No. 11. It is a fit ting and eloquent tribute to tbe life and services of General Sheridan. It says that during the year ending March 31, 1888, 4,123 Grand Army comrades have died, among whom Sheridan stands the most conspicuous. The colors at the National and Department headquarters are ordered to be draped and the cus tomary badge of mourning worn for forty days. THE DEATH WATCH. maxwell's Last Night on Earth. The Parting from His Relatives. St. Louis, August 9.—Nothing of espe cial interest transpired after the morning meeting between Mrs. Brooks and her son. She and her daughter returned at 4p. m. for the final farewell. They en tered Maxwell's cell, accompanied by two Deputy Sheriffs, who watched them closely to prevent the passing of any in strument of death by the mother or sui ter to the condemned man. Maxwell received his visitors with outward calm ness, and during their forty minutes con versation his face never brightened. The conversation was a resume of the case and the mother denounced Governor More house, the State of Missouri and tbe United States. She concluded with the remark that when Governor Morehouse makes his final appeal to Heaven it will go unanswered. A deputy sheriff notified the ladies that their time was up. The mother threw her arms about Maxwell with the words, "O my God, my God!" She kissed him twice, and hiding her eyes with ncr hands passed out. The sister embraced THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 10, 1888. her brother and kissed him, but he ap parently failed to return the caress of either, and they passed out weeping bit terly, the mother staggering in her woe. Maxwell lighted a cigarette and throwing hit head back unconcernedly, puffed out a volume of smoke and cooly returned to some manuscript he was correcting. Half an hour later he partook of a light sup per. After Maxwell had partaken of supper, he returned to his cell, and soon after re ceived a call from Father Tippan. The priest remained with Maxwell longer than usual, and it is now fully de cided that he will administer the com munion to Maxwell in the morn ing. John I. Martin, one of Max well's attorneys, returned from Jeffer son City on the night train, and called on his condemned client at once, assuring him that his efforts were un ceasing to prevent the execution from being carried out in the morning. Mar tin said he had been in telegraphic com munication with Washington and ex pected to receive a cable from England at any moment. A FELLOW CULPRIT. Henry Landgraf, who is to be executed on the same gallows with Hugh M. Brooks, alias Maxwell, passed his last day on earth in an uneventful manner. During the afternoon he was visited by his attorney, whom he thanked for the efforts made to save him from the gal lows. GROWING RESTLESS. Midnight—At 11-30 Father Tippan re turned to the jail and entered Maxwell's cell. The condemned man closed the cell door and complained of a lack of privacy, denouncing what he termed the unfeeling curiosity of those in jail. The confessor was with Maxwell fifteen minutes and when he left the cell said to an Associated Press reporter, "He will go to his death bravely asserting his innocence." For the first time since his incarceration Maxwell realizes that his doom is sealed, and he is beginning to grow rest less, nervous and irritable. At this hour, midnight, he is sitting at a table in his cell reading a book left him by Fa ther Tippan. Maxwell is never without a cigarette and smokes while he reads. THE GOVERNOR FIRM. Three a. m. —Maxwell was awakened at 2a. m. and now sits in his cell, hag gard and fully realizing the fate that awaits him. A ray of hope was brought to him by his atttorney, John I. Martin, who received the following telegram from his colleague, Fountleroy, who is at Jefferson City. The British Minister has sent a telegram to the Gov ernor asking a respite in order to let him make inquiry into the circumstances. The Governor persists in believing that the inquiry meant is to be made by the United States, and not by the British Government. Have wired the Minister, and urged the Governor to delay the hanging until all doubt be removed. He promises nothing. THE BL.AINE BLOWOUT, nis Snip Comes sailing- In Too Late for the Festivities. New York, August 9. —The Inman Line steamer City of New York, with Hon. Jas. G. Blame on board, was sight, ed southwest of Fire Island at 1:18 a. m. Boats with Blame committees on board were cruising down the coast all the forenoon. Soon after 11 o'clock Mr. and Mrs. James G. Blame, Jr., the ladies who accompanied tbem, Walker Blame, Murat Halsted and Gen eral KiDg, boarded the Chicago dele gates' tug and were taken over to Coney Island, opposite to which the Sloan lay. Then the Sloan J steamed up to Quaran tine to learn if anything had been heard of the City of New York. At 2 o'clock the Sloan' again dropped down through the Narrows and lay to, off Coney Island, where those aboard amused themselves. W. N. Johnson of Baltimore, by general consent was made master of ceremonies, and after a procession up and down the deck with songs and band music, he called upon the various members of the family for short talks. A resolution of regret for the death of Sheridan was adopted. Then music by the band and another procession through the boat closed the proceedings, after which the Sloan steamed back to Stapleton. After wait ing vainly until 8 p.m. the Sloan steamed back. TIRED OF WAITING. The projectors and managers of the demonstration to Blame felt that the delegates from out of town should not he kept here another day for the parade, and a reviewing stand having been erected at Madison Square, on Fiffth avenue, it was to-night fully occupied and a parade took place. There is little doubt, however, that another demonstra tion will be held to-morrow night, when Mr. Blame will be here. Although the stand itself was crowded the small place set apart for the distin guished guests was kept clear, for al though Blame had not arrived, Hon. Levi P. Morton, candidate for Vice-President, was there, and took the Maine states man's place. As the head of the pro cession reached the stand, Mr. Morton ascended, accompanied by Walker Blame, T. L. Woodruff, Leonard Hazel tine, General Barnum, Senator Quay, General John N. Knapp, Bernard Biglin, Police Commissioner McCabe, H. W. Warren. General Banks, Senator Gris wold, Perry H. Carson (the colored member of the National Committee from the District of Columbia), Colonel Con ger, of Ohio: General James W. Chase, of Rhode Island; General D. F. Burke, of the old Irish Brigrade; Patrick Ford, Justin Ford snd General Kirwin. THE PROCESSION. As the procession reached the stand, and each battalion caught sight of Morton loud cheers went up for the candidate for Vice-President, whose presence for the time-being dissipated tbe disappointment caused by Blame's not arriving. The New York Republi can Club, headed by Cappa's band, passed the stand in view, and then drew up on the other side of Broadway and halted. The rest of the procession passed, giving marching salutes. There was no speech making, hut as soon as the procession passed Twenty-third street it disbanded. The absence of Blame did not perceptibly affect the number of paraders, nor did the enthusiasm of the long line of march seem in any way dampened. A notice able feature of the parade was the fact that the organizations comprising it had seemed to lose sight of the fact that it was intended as a reception solely to Blame, and regarded it as both a ratifica tion and reception. The numerous ban ners carried bore no allusion to him except in rare instances. The old cry of "Blame, Blame, James G. Blame" was seldom heard. A feature of the parade was the unanimity with which the National colors were dis played. Flags, badges, banners, hat bands, and in many cases neck ties, were made of red, white and blue. All along the line of march from tbe place of formation, near Central Park, to Twenty third street, where the majority of the organizations disbanded, crowds thronged sidewalks, stoops and windows and points of vantage. MICHIGAN REPS. Disaffection In the Ranks on the Sumptuary Plank. Detroit, August 9.—The Republican State Convention yesterday adjourned until 9 o'clock this morning. The Com mittee on Permanent Organization re ported the name oi G. W. Fair, of Grand Haven, for permanent chairman. Judge Williams, of Allegan, nomina tions for Governor being in order, pre sented the name of Cyrus G. Luce. "The only speech I have to make," he said, "is that he is honest, competent, faithful and he is not afraid of a sheep." Tbe nomination was made unanimous by a rising vote. James S. McDonald was nominated for Lieutenant-Governor, G. R. Osmun, for Secretary of State, and for other State officers all the present incumbents were unanimously renominated by acclama tion. At this stage of the proceedings Gov ernor Luce was escorted to the platform. In a few remarks the Governor acknowl edge the honor conferred upon him and pledged his best efforts to faithfully dis chai ge the duties as Governor and vig ilantly guard the best interests of the State, if the people should select him. Stephen V. R. Trowbridge was nomi nated for Attorney General; Joseph Esta brook for State Superintendent of Pub lic Instructions; General Russell A. A. Alger and Isaac Copper, of Ottawa county, electors at large. J. N. Babcock, chairman of the Com mittee on Resolutions, then read the re solutions, announcing that they had been adopted by the Committee against the protest of the minority. The resolutions heartily affirm confi dence in the principles expressed and the candidates nominated by the National Convention. The protection principle is eulogized and President Cleveland and the Democratic party arraigned for their bitter and destroying attacks upon American industries and labor. The progressive temperance legislation en acted by the last Legislature is endorsed and regret is expressed that its full fruits are not realized, and, owing to the tech nical defects in the law, held by the Su preme Court to be unconstitutional. The plank continues: "We record ourselves as in favor of an impartial enforcement of the temperance laws of the State, and recommend to the next Legislature a re enactment of the local option laws that shall be free from objections. Liberal pensions are endorsed. Trusts and like monopolies are condemned. Such laws should be enacted as will pro tect our laboring men against the com petition of imported Chinese and foreign contract labor, and will also protect them in the preservation of their rights and secure to them safety in their employ ment. Michigan's Democratic Congressmen for their "willing submission to the dictation of Southern Democratic mem bers and their disloyal action upon the Di'ect Tax bill. ; Miller, of Saginaw, stated that the Committee had been unanimous on the report except to the plank relating to temperance. Charles J. Osborne, of Marquette, said he had refrained from signing the report because he disapproved the resolution. S. S. Babcock, of Detroit, said the Re publican party could not afford to take a backward step. Colonel E. M. Irish, of Kalamazoo, though in favor of strong temperance measures, did not think it wise to adopt legislation on a subject on which the best lawyers were divided. General Williams, of Allegan, thought the resolution did not cover the ground. Ex-Congressman Hubbell was of the opinion that the Republicans could take no backward step, and asked for a recess to more fully consider the matter. The motion for a recess was voted down and the platform was adopted with a major ity, apparently, of four to one. The Convention then adjourned sine die with three cheers for the ticket. Eastern Echoes. The Parnell Commission bill passed first reading in the Lords last night. In the Commons the Oaths bill passed third reading by a vote of 147 against 60. The Dural county, Fla., Board of Health announces that the developments of the last twenty-four hours assure the prevalence of yellow fever tending to as sume an epidemic form. THE SUPERVISORS. Appointment of Justices of tne Peace—Other matters. The Board of Supervisors met yester day and ordered a warrant for $250 dravm for immigration purposes. W. L. Wheeler was appointed Justice of the Peace for Los Angeles township, and Wm. Chase was appointed constable for the same court. The report of the Viewer on the boulevard from Washing ton street to Santa Monica was set for hearing on September 4th. The further hearing of the petitions for a wharf at San Pedro and for a ferry franchise was continued until August 14th. The report of the Viewer of the Telegraph and Jabonaria road was read and adopted, and the road therein described was declared a public highway. The Downey road fund was increased by $350 from the general road fund. The hearing of the Santa Monica Cliff road matter was set for September 14th. The resignation of the Justice of the Peace John Shelton, of Azusa, was accepted, and J. C. Jones was appointed in his place. The Board then adjourned. The attention of the police was recent ly called to the fact that the sidewalks of Spring street were being obstructed in the most crowded locality. Yesterday morning Officer Bosqui filed complaints against three store keepers on the west side of Spring, between First and Frank lin, named Anderson, Warren and Cor ran. The obstructions in question were large fixed signs set out near the curb stone. To Wed. The following were yesterday licensed to wed: S. Arthur Bent and Eliza J. McKee, of 1 ,os Angeles. Albert H.

Governor Waterman has declared Sat urday a legal holiday in respect to the memory of General Phil. H. Sheridan. Tbe offices of the State Government will remain closed all day. BLUE RIBBON DAY. [continued from first page.] ! The Knees. "But the play's the thing," as Shakes peare remarked after investing two groat ii on one of Lord Bacon's good things at the Btratford Annual Fair, and so to business. The races yesterday were, if anything, better contested and more exciting than on the previous three days, and the As sociation must be congratulated on keep ing up the high average of sport through out the week. Great as was the contest between Stamboul and Arab on the pre vious day, Mr. Hickok furnished the pub lic with a far more exciting contest, when Elector threw down the gauntlet to Franklin in the closing event of yester day's programme. The betting in the pool box was bewildering in the extreme, Franklin being at one moment a hot favorite, and a moment later Elector be ing the chosen one. After the third heat had been decided matters came to a crisis, as it was hinted that Mr. Hickok would probably give way to a less expe rienced driver, owing to indisposition to handle the reins. Singular to state, this _ rumor merely had the effect of making Elector a better favorite, but those who invested their money on this proposition were doomed to disappoint ment, as, contrary to the entreaties of his friends, Mr. Hickok decided to finish the race, and even with the assistance of his artistic handling, Elector could se cure but second money. To give a de tailed description of the various heata in this race would but deceive the public as to the merits of the different horses, and though very interesting to witness, as indicative of the inner workings of ncing in general and trotting in particu lar, they would afford but a misleading guide to future performances. THE ROSE STABLE VICTORIOUS. The Sunny Slope trotting stakes for two-year-olds introduced to Los Angeles another charming daughter of Stamboul, Vesolia. She is indeed a credit to her illustrious sire, and Mr. Rose must feel proud at seeing the excellence of his fa vorite stallion perpetuated in his off spring, Needless to say, under the able guidance of her driver, Mr. Walter Ma ben, she won her race without an effort in two straight heats, her solitary oppo nent, Tono, being palpably outclassed. THE RUNNERS. The McGinnis stakes provided one of the most exciting contests yet witnessed, and the finish was worth going miles to witness. There was little to choose be tween the competitors in the betting, Wild Gats being favorite, whilst Four Aces and Fandango found hosts of ad mirers. Theße three horses met in the half mile dash on Monday last and on that occasion Fandango was second, Wild Oats third and Four Aces close up fourth. The connections of the latter colt claimed that in that race his chance was destroyed by the rider of Wild Oats colliding with him on entering the stretch, and expressed the utmost confi dence of reversing that running. Whether their claim was just, is a matter of opinion, but that Four Aces amply atoned for his previous defeat and justi fied their expectations by winning some what easily is a matter of record. They got away to a fair start, Fandango being somewhat slow in getting into his stride, two lengths behind. Wild Oats led round the turn, but at the quarter Fandango rushed to the front, the others a length behind, going easily. Fandango made strong play to the half, where he began to come back to his horses, and at the three-quarters they were all bunched. Entering the stretch Wild Oats was a neck in front of Fan dango, Four Aces a length away third, but gradually improving his position. Half way up the straight Fandango fell back beaten. Four Aces on the outside challenged Wild Oats. Hitchcock scent ing danger raised his whip, and though for a moment it seemed as if Wild Oats would answer his call, Wicks, after a little rousing, landed the chestnut colt a winner by a long neck. Fandango was third, two lengths away: The win ner is a fine-looking chestnut colt, by Hockhocking out of Maid of the Mist, and this is his fourth appearance in pub lic. His only defeat so far was on Mon day last, and should he but make the improvement natural with age he will turn out a clinking 3-year-old. The three-fourths mile and repeat race was marred by the fractiousness at the post of Consuelo and Elwood, each of these destroying what little chance they had, by sulking at the fall of the flag. After a long delay caused by Elwood repeatedly breaking away and indulging in a gallop to the half-mile post, they came away, oblivious of the fact that the starter's flag was still hoisted, and after giving to the public a fairly pretty finish, were requested by the Judges to repeat the performance. This time Mr. Cova rrubias let them go to what ought to have been a good start, but as Elwood concluded to sulk, she was left at the post. Carmen made the running to the half mile closely attended by Gladstone, Consuelo trailing behind. At the three-quarter post Consuelo moved up and Gladstone made his effort, which was, however, useless, Carmen coming away in the stretch and winning hands down by five lengths. A pretty race home between Gladstone and Consuelo for second place resulted in favor of the former by one half a length. After the usual interval Consuelo, Car men and Gladstone went to the post for the second heat, Elwood, who under the rules was distanced in the previous heat, being an absentee. The starter got them away to a fair start, bnt the rider of Con suelo under some misapprehension pulled up, and lost thereby twenty lengths. Carmen made the running, followed by Gladstone, and this order was maintained to the three-quarter pole, where Consuelo, by vigorous riding, was made to join his field. Entering the stretch Hitchcock had won his race, and taking a strong pull on bis mount he allowed his opponents to get to his saddle girths, which was as far as they ever got, Carmen winning hands down by a length, Gladstone second, two lengths in front of Mr. Den's exhausted horse.
