feelings created by the officious inter ference of Gibbon, attorney for the Terminal railroad, and Galley, collector of tbe port of Los Angelea. And even now if Patton will call off some of bis friends and discountenance tbeir meth ods ha will find plainer sailing. Tbe congressional convention was to have decided tho matter tonight, and tbe delegates met for this purpose, but the point wsb raised that the committee on credentials bad not reported, and therefore tbe proceedings, if held, might be questioned. Patton's friends seemed glad to have a stay for another day, which would indicate that they are not. overly confident of the game. My own judgment is that Patton will finally be nominated by reason of his support from Santa Cruz and other counties out side of Los Angeles. Late tonight it is reported that Ma guire will enter the race for governor, but nothing authoritative is known. henry Wilson's opportunity. The Loa Angeles delegation is urging Heary Wilson to allow bis name to be presented to tbe convention for secretary of state. He can get the nomination if he wants it, but he has not consented to ruu. There is a desire to put some man on the ticket from the southern part of the state. President Cleveland's action in calling off Collector Wise as a candidate for governor while holding a federal office, has caused a cold shiver to run down tho backs of some members of the federal brigade who have beeu too much in evi dence around this convention. At this writing Del Valle is locked in a room which is being stormed by the iriends of applicants for positions on the different committeea. M. THE CONVENTION. preliminary Organization Effected — Re view of the Situation. By the Associated Press, San Francisco, Aug. 21.—The Demo cratic state convention met here shortly after noon today. The nomination of a full state ticket and the adoption of a platform is the won before the conven tion. Tonight interest centers in the contest for the gubernatorial nomina tion, and tbe nomination of three can didates for railroad commissioners and three candidates for election to the state board of equalization. The contest be tween tbe tactions known as "railroad" and "anti-railroad," is mainly over the naming of candidates for these two im portant state boards. For governor tbe leading candidates tonight are ex-Congressman Budd of Stockton and "Barney" D. Murphy of San Jose. The name of Congressman Maguire is also prominently mentioned, but be is making no fight for tbe nom ination. anybody's victory. Tonight, however, it can be said that no one bas won the battle. This ia due to the fact that the practical, siate making politicians are handicapped, none of tbe reputed busses having suf ficient strength to wield the whip. The convention bus 661 delegates. Of these 156 are from San Francisco, but owing to tbe fact that there are four fighting fac tions in this big delegation it cannot be held together and wielded to control the convention. The only other large dele gations are Los Angeies, with 42 votes; Alameda, with 37; Santa Clara, with 22; Sacramento and Sonoma, with 10 each ; San Joaquin, with 17, and Fresno, with 15. None of these delegations have been able to effect any strong combina tions. prohaule resolutions. It is confidently predicted that the convention will adopt strong resolutions against the refunding of tbe Pacific rail roads' indebtedness, aad nrging govern ment control of the Pacific roads. The railroad faction, however, is bound to be determined in its opposition to this pro gramme. Resolutions have also been drawn upholding the Cleveland admin istratio:. and condemning the United States senators who succeeded in defeat ing the purposes of the Wilson bill sb to sugar, iron and coal. Resolutions have been drafted openly condemning Gor man, Smith and Brice. CALLED TO ORDER. Max J'opper, chairman of the Btate central committee, called the convention to order at 12 :30 thia afternoou. K. F. del Valle of Loa Angeles wae elected chairman ol the convention by acclama tion. George S. Patton of Los Angeles, In bis speech placing Del Valle in nom ination, made the opening attack on the railroad companies. He declared that in the coming campaign the South ern Pacific people mnit for the first time come from behind their ramparts and fight in tbe open. This declaration was load)- cheered and Chairman del Valle, in his opening remarks, provoked uproarious applause when he declared tbat he endorsed every anti-railroad sentiment that Patton had uttered. Charles F. Montgomery of Contra Costa county and Robert J. O'Reilly ef ban Franoisco were elected secretaries ef the convention. THE FIERT DISSENSION. The convention's first dissension oc curred at thia juncture. All along the country delegates had been oomplaining of the inadequate accommodations af forded in the Baldwin theater. Over 100 chairs bad been crowded into tbe wain floor of the auditorium in order to seat tbe lit; I delegates. Tbe delegates from the mining distriots of Tehama, Nevada, Butte and Amador counties were crowded into chairs plaoed witbia the orohestra rail. Only by craning their neske could they see the presiding officer, and this they did not like. The Loa Angeles men were behind Nevada in the left orchestra chairs, and the Ala nieda and Marin delegates were on the right. The country delegates demanded tbat a more suitable convention hall be provided. They finally succeeded in forcing tbe appointment of a committee >f five to investigate and if poaslbls get a better hall. SPECTATORS DISAPPOINTED. The convention took a recess nntil 3 o'clock, greatly to the disappointment of tbe great crowd that filled tbe galleries. The boxes of the theater were crowded with ladies and a few federal officials. Little effort had been made to decorate tbe theater. Across the front of the stage, on which provision bad been ■nade for the presiding officers and mem bers of the press, the stars and stripes were draped from the drop curtain. A large picture of President Cleveland waa suspended in the center. THE EVENING SESSION. The convention waa again called to order at 3 p.m. Chairman Del Valle atated that he bad appointed a commit tee to csnaider tbe qneation of removal to another hall, aa follows: Harvey I. Jackson, San Francisco; tiarrett Melo erney. Pun Francisco; W. R, Burke, l.os Angeles; John Even, Napa; C. W. Rsed, Han Francisco, Jktclaerny announced tbat tbe com ' L i mittee would receive complaints this evening regarding the Baldwin theater, and therealtei consider tbe question of removal. This did not please many ol the interior delegates, wbo desired to fight the matter out then and there, but the committee maintained its posi tion, and gained the desired delay, which the country delegates say is de feating the purpose of the resolution creating the committee. It was agreed to adjourn until tomor row at 10 a.m., when the chairmau has promised to announce the committee on permanent organization and platform. THE CREDENTIAL*. COMMITTEE. Before adjournim-, the following com mittee on credentials was announced : G. W. Mordecai, chairman, Madera: N. 0. Bradley, Tulare ;J. W. Hughes, San Diego; John McMnrray, Trinity; •lames H. Wilkins, Marin; Frank R. Weiue, Sierra; W. J. McGee, Amador; B. F. Harris, t'alavaras; Dan (", Dona hue, Yuba; C. H. Jamieaon, Lake; John Hachett, Alameda; John Wolf, Solano; George T. Marve, Colin M. Boyd, W. P. Lawler, W. fl. Byington, Joseph P. Kelley. San Francisco; Sain M, Rucker, San Jose; Thomas Renieon, Monterey; A. Ramish, Loa Angeles; C. A. Snook, Santa Barbara. BEORUANIZEBS SEATED. I The committee on credentials held a | session this aitemoon and another last j ing three honre this evening. Tonight's > meeting was devoted entirely to ihe j consideration oi the respective claims oi j the rival delegations trom Sacramento. H. M. Lame and .1. Doty spoke for the reorganizes, and .1. 11. Stevens for the old line Democrats. After listening to ' the argument-, the committee went into j executive session. A proposition from j the committee to seat half of each dele gation was declined by both parties. Finally, by a vote of 20 to 1, the com mittee declared iv favor of the reorgani zes. The contest in the Alameda delegation between Superintendent of the Mint ] Daggett and Frank J. Mofiitt, over the chairmanship of the delegation, re sulted iv the election of Mofiitt by a vote of 1!) to Hi, oyer R. M. Fitzgerald, Daggett's caudidate. The feeling be tween tbe two factions is co bitter that the minority openly aver their determi nation to oppose the majority on every proposition which may arise during the convention. PROBABLE A, P. A. ACTION. All day long considerable talk was heard regarding the probable action of tbe A. P. A. on various nominations which are being urged. Surveyor of Port English, who aims at the conven tion leadership, urged strongly the adoption of a plank in the platform con demning the A. P. A. This proposal wae deprecated by the conservative ele ment, as injudicious, but late in tbe evening English gained his point so far as the acceptance of the plank ia con cerned, Tbe platform committee will not be named until tomorrow, but most of the sections have already been drafted, one of them referring to tbe A. P. A. There will undoubtedly be a strong fight against its adoption in com mittee, and a still harder fight in the convention. Planks denouncing the ReiHy funding bill, the abolition of the railroad com mission and a general tussle with the Southern Pacific are also to be in tbe platform. THE TWO MUHI'HYS. James E. Murphy, superior judge of Del Norte, is one of the leading can didates for supreme justice. Owing to thai A. P. A. talk he fears the convention will not stand two Mu'*>hys on the ticket—Barney for governor and James for justice—so he is making a vigorous fight tonight to change the usual order of business, making tbe nominations for the supremo bench take precedence over those for governor. There is no likelihood, however, tbat this departure from cus tom will be made. Great pressure is being brought upon Judge Wallace to induce him to recon sider his refusal to be a candidate for supreme justice. His friends believe be will consent to be a candidate and are confident of his nomination. BUDD AND MVKPHY LEADING. James H. Budd of Stockton and Bar ney Murphy of San Jose are still the leading candidates in the race for tbe guberuatorial nomination. The friends of the former held a oaucus in the Lick douse tonight and claim 275 votes pledged to Budd, 331 being necessary to a choice. Murphy's adherents claim the inside of tbe race bnt refuse to make a numerical announcement. Enthus iastic Murphy men are wearing badges with "Barney Murphy" in blue letters, to offset the red badges of Jim Budd's followers. Most of the delegates are un badged, however. MAGUIRE A CANDIDATE. For the first time since the formal an nouncement of bis candidacy, Congress man Maguire'a boom for governor shows positive strength tonight. The Sab Francisco delegates made a great play of arousing enthusiasm for him, bat many I asserted that there was "a nigger in the woodpile," and that their support of Magnire was not genuine. There is talk of Budd withdrawing in favor of Maguire after the first two ballots, but Budd's friends emphatically deny this. THE MAN 6P DKSTINV. A statement whicb had more cur rency and which received ftreater cre dence, was the announcement that Murphy, at the last moment, would re tire in favor of Dennis Spencer of Napa, whom many consider the man of des tiny and a very available candidate. It is urged that his residence would offset that of Mr. Eatee and that his record is excellent. It is understood that D. A. Ostrom of Yuba will be content with a compli mentary vote on the first ballot. Nomination of a congressman for the Sixth district was deferred from this evening nntil tomorrow night, pending tha report of the committee on creden tials. D. M. Delmas of Santa Clara is be lieved to be Del Valle's choice for chair man of the platform committee, ENGLISH RENOMINATED.

WEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST c 2, 1894. NEW QUEEN OF THE TROTTERS Sweet Little Alix Dethrones Nancy Hunks. She Reels Off a Mile la 2:05 1-1 on a Slow Track. Condition, cam,:,,,,!, This Is tha It St exhibition Kv.ir Mad . • Olh»r Good Frrfo rmaucoa ou the Card. By the Associated Press. Chicago, Aug. 21.—Alix today trotted in 2:054 at Washington Park, and the exhibition was pronounced by nenrly all the horsemen preaent to be the greatest ever made in the sulky. It re duced the track record of 2:ot>' 4 , held by Nancy Hanks, and while it fell a sec ond and a quarter short of the world's record, it was really a better perform ance, conditions considered. Washington Park is at least a second and a half slow. It haa not beeu so fast as formerly since the new loam was placed on it before the June running meeting, and is in need of a good hard rain. All the drivers agree that the track is slow. John Kelly, wbo handled Directum last year, said : "This is the greatest mile ever trotted. Had Alix been sent against tha record lastweek at Terre Haute she whould have undoubtedly beaten it." McDowell, who handled Alix today said tbe track was two seconds slow at the smallest estimate. The event was not called until a few minutes after sp. m. Although the wind was not high, the air was cool and far from record breaking condition, Alix scored twice and waa then sent away. The first quarter was made in 111 1 .. ; she scurried on to the half in 1:0,4' ; ; there McDowell let her out a little and tbe running mate joined her. She went to the three-quarterß in 1:35 and came home without a break, and full of go, in 2:05' 4 . Tomorrow Directly, 2:12, and Carbon ate, 2:19, will engage in a match race for $2000, and on Friday the great pacers, Robert J. and Joe Patcben, will meet for a $5000 purse. On Saturday Fantasy will reel off a fast mile. The attendance was good. A great field appeared for the 2:15 trot, but Trevellian clearly showed the beat of the lot, while Ora Wilkes was just as clearly second beet. Silicon was quite a disap pointment. Fidol won the 2:11 pace without any trouble. The 2 :."0 pace brought out one of the hardest races ot the meeting and a scandal. Dickereon, who was substi tuted for Thayer behind Douglass in the fifth heat crowded Major Ewing into the fence, causing him to fall, yet Sells got the Chicago horse on his feet and cov ered his dißtance. There was a loud protest and it was claimed Dickeraon's act waß intentional, but tbe judges de cided otherwise. Douglass won this heat and the next one and seemed to have the race, but Major Ewing won the decisive trial amid the greatest en tbnstam. Class 2:30, trotting, purse $1500— Major Ewing won the third, fourth aud seventh heats and the race in 2:20, 2:2o'j and 2:22? 4 ; Douglas second, win ning the fifth and sixth heats in 2:20? 4 and 2:22, and Visant third, with the first and second heats in 2:17 and 2.17', Five otbere also started.

SPRING ST. I 808-207 N. SPRING ST. AFTER A LAPSE OF YEARS. The Perpetrator* of a Cold-IUooded Murder Arreflted. Picdan, Kan., Aug. 21. —After a lapse of four virtu the cowardly murderers of John S. Frazer, a prominent cattle dealer of this county, have been cap tured. They are all prominent farmers or business men living in this vicinity, and the newB of their arrest has caused a sensation. Their names are Theodore F. Cox, Marx McBae, William LiokliB ter, J. it. Cox and V. liner Cox. The crime with which the men are charged was one of the most cold blooded murders ever committed in Kansas. In 1S&0 W. H. Gibson and J. B. Frazer were partners in an extensive cattle buBinesB in Chautauqua. They imported 1400 head of Texas Bteere, to which the neighboring raisers objected, tearing they would spread the Texas fever. Gibson and Frazer refused to remove the cattle, however, and in consequence were threatened with death. They paid no heed to the threats, but in May of that year Gibson was found dead in a hotel at Moline, Kan. In June Frazer was milled and after a long search his body, covered with knife cuts, was found in a neighboring streum. Gibson's death was thought to have been caused by heart disease, but the finding of Fraxer's body led to the murder theory. Since then Bearch for the murderers has quietly progressed, culminating today in what is believe'd to be the arrest of the active participants. SDOI HIS liltOTHKU.

It Wilt Soon Connect Salt I.alio and Los Angeles. San Franchco, Aug. 21.—C01. laaao Trumbo of Salt Lake City and San Francisco was among the arrivala from the east, Monday. Colonel Trumbo is at present devoting his energiea to a railroad project which be has in hand, whicb, if it is ever realizsd, uud the colonel says there can be no question as to that, it will confer vast benefits on Southern California, and incidentally on the entire state. The line is known as the Salt Lake, Los Angeles and Pa cific, and will extend, aa its title indicates, between the Great Salt lake in Utah and the metropolis of Sonthern California, with an extension to tide water at San Pedro. The road is something more than a mare project, for the entire route has been fixed upon and surveyed, and at either cad the company has a short section in opera tion, being, moreover, in posseaßion of splendid terminal facilities. "At the eastern end," said Colonel Trumbo, in speaking ou of the aubjeot, "we have constructed the section from Salt Lake City to Salt Air, a distance of 20 odd miles, and at this end we are in operation from San Pedro to Altadena," l>r.
