SOME BOSS BOODLER METHODS.
How the Third Ward Was Manipulated. Good Men Who Wore Used aa Stool Pigeons. They Objeel to the Oorrapt SlinlMa-. fary Sohemee That Were Brought Into Play—Delesjatefl Who Won't Be Boned. There were many shifts made yester day in tbe chances of the candidates who will appear before the Republican county convention on Tuesday and the fermentation ia still in progress. As the smoke of tbe battle of tho pri maries cleara away the delegates are getting a clearer vision of the field and a deep seated conviction bas taken hold of their minds tbat Colonel Otis ia mak ing extraordinary efforta to boss the convention. All day yeaterday tbia would-be bosa waa busy sending out messengers to all parts of the oonnty in a frantic endeavor to bulldoze both can didates and delegates to accept bis lordly dictates. Particularly is this true in the Third ward, where a good repre sentative ticket wae elected, not because tbey loved Otis but becauae they are goad men and were naed as stool pig eons. An effort ii now being made to bullyrag them into aupporting Otis men — Parker for recorder, Meaerve for district attorney and Carter for tbe assembly in the Seventy-fifth, diatrict. Speaking of the Third ward suggeata the fact that the methoda pursued at the primaries there would caat into the shade tbe moat corrupt and outrageous political methoda ever brought into play in tbe palmiest days of Buokleyiam in Sau Francisco, and the nefarious work was done to tbe cry of "anti-ring." The headquarters of the ward manipulators Vac at room 113, Potomac block, and here during the day young Forrester reg "tared voters steered there by Me serve, Carter and others, who belong to Colonel Otis' political purity league. They refused to register a voter named (iates, well known in the ward, because he would not vote their ticket. A great many Republicans have raised the in quiry aa to whether tbia private regis tration bureau waa established by County Clerk Ward or hie chief deputy, Frank Lowry, who ia a candidate for county clerk. The boldeat piece of work in the line of boodleiam was the using of a ticket by thia ring, tha back of which was covered with priuted newspaper matter, so that when the ticket wae folded it waa possible for the heelers of this gang of manipulators to see that the ticket was all right for their side, and tbat the gooda were properly deliv ered at the ballot box. The old trick of shifting tickets from one hand to the other, and subetituting one of the Carter, Parker and Meserve tickets was resorted to, until several leading Republicans of the werd wbo take but little interest in politics, indignantly protested against such flagrant ballot box stuffing. Others who came to the polls left in disgust without voting. The boodle methods and nefarious ..iw down schemes whioh were practiced by tbese ward workers were bruited around town yesterday, and thia knowl edge, together with the (nutthat Colonel Otis in an autocratic manner, sought to get a collar on tbe men of the delega tion, has made them very restive, and us tbey are well known citizens they have openly declared tbat tbey will wear no label, Colonel Otis or otherwise, but go into the convention and vote for tbe beet men. Taken altogether tbe Third ward primaries were the most disgrace ful on record in the City of the Aogela, and the delegates who were innoceut of participation in the dirty work are prompt in repudiating the acts of the beelers who bad agreed to deliver them to Otia bound hand and foot, but it ia the old etory of leading a horse to water and not being able to make him drink. Quite a number of country delegates who were in tbe city yesterday told their acquain tances of the autocratic instructions sent to them by tbe would-be boss, together with threata of a "roasting" if they failed to obey tbe crack of the whip. "That old Times fool has wrecked our party too often," said a Pomona dele gate, "and now he wants to be a little tin god. We propose to vote for the beat men and will take no dictation from Otia." In the sheriff fight Cline seems to be honrly adding to his strength. An im portant factor in this direction is the active interest a large number of prom inent business men are taking in it. There is some nebnloua talk of a com bine between Burr and llammel, aud this bas made tbe friends of Clements and Aguirre hot uuder the collar. The returns from the country, Cline'a friends say, are atrongly encouraging. HAs tbe tiding! come in from the mral districts they indicate that Snmmerland is cutting into Captain Gray'a territory. To jnat what extent cannot yet be deter mined, but it ia true, according to the politioal wiseacres. With the solid backing of tbe First ward delegation, Sherman Smith's friends claim that hia chances are roseate for the recordership. The reports from outside the city are very promising for tbe Firat ward statesman, ao they esy. The adherenta of George Rolton are not doing any braea baud work, but claim that he will be able to fade out E. A. Meaerve, Major Donnell and other aspirants. It looka now as if Van Dyke would be nominated by acclamation for judge, and that Wright, with Pasadena back of him, haa the best, call on eecond place.

Dietriot Attorney Dillon aeeerted him aelf yeaterday, and be didn't seem to oare whether it waa Major Horace Bell agaiuat whom the assertion waa made, or anybody elee. Because it waa Major Horace Bell Mr, Dillon probably braced bimaelf when he did what he did, bat beyond tbat hie florid countenance did not become any florider. The trouble arose over the J. C. 0. Price oaae. In that caee Major Bell wae retained as special counsel to assiat tho prosecution. He appeared in Justice Bartholomew's court and Deputy Die triot Attorney Davie left the prosecution in his hande. Tbe major's etl'orta were ancoeeeful and Price was held to an swer. He is the curly-headed young mau who made collections ior the Her mitage Vineyard company. He did not turn in for tlie company. Yesterday morning Mr. Dillon was in department one and Major Bell was there also. Tbe ire of the district attor ney bad been smoulderi ig for several of the hot days that u«Tv) ranged them selves in Los Angelea recently. Ilia wrath waa becauae a weekly paper, the Porcupine, had reflected on him lor dis missing the 12 additional indictments against Al Cobler, ex-deputy connty assessor. Mr. Dillon is one of the most amiable of men in his personal rubbing up against people, but Major Bell waa the la9t straw, ao to apeak, because Major Bell, he thought, inspired the articles about Cobler. The district attorney aroae and very quietly atated to Judge McKinley, who sits in department one while Judge Smith is catching yellowtail, tbat Major Bell appeared as assistant in tbe prosecution of J. C. 0. Price. He moved that tie be stricken from the rolla as assisting in the case. Major Bell stood up and aaid ha had been employed in tbe caae to assiat tlie prosecution by the members of the Her mitage company, lie had gone ahead and worked faithfully on the caae. He had worked up witnesses and the de fendant bad been held to anawer. The major grew a little warmarat thia point and eaid, swelling, that he wae not asaociated with the district attor ney, or any people of his kind, from choice. Ac Major Bell struck the bone of con tention be grew more and more excited and picked up hia cane, with which be paced up and down in a style peculiarly hia own, while Deputy Sheriff Marah a sit watching his motions iv a chair juat be hind him. Tbe pent-up emotions of the major finally found vent, and he said that he waa not particularly desirous of associ ating with people like ex-Marshal Geo. E. Card, John Belt and the diatrict attorney. Mr. Dillon sat perfectly calm under the explosives of the major, and even elevated hia eyebrowa. Judge McKin ley cut the discuaaiou ehort and granted Mr. Dillon's motion. Then Msjar Bell got up and walked out of court. WHERE THE WEATHER IS HOT Mine. Bad to B i Shut Down Became of Heat. Joseph Bauer, a miner of El Dorado canon, out on the Colorado river, ia at the United States hotel. He eaya that the mill at the camp ia julit now shut down becauae of the intense heat. Tbe thermometer haa been ranging between 114 and 126 degrees in tbe coolest places, and it made thinga rather too warm to work around tbe mill. The mill bas 15 atampa and haa been doing very well. The ore is free milling gold and quite rich. Upwarda of 50 men have hitherto found employment with the company. The mill is situated on the river, while the miues are bacx some five or six milee.

They State Their Position From Their Point of View. A Z,ara;e Tnrnont and Stoma Farrld Bpaeehei—The Platform Eluci dated nnd Proph>:ol»a Made. The ratification meeting of the state Democratic ticket under the auspices of the Jefferaoniau club at the old court house last night was a rousing one. There was an immense turn out of the Democracy in honor of the occasion and every one was bubbling over with poli tical enthusiasm. The speakers stand was erected mid way between Spring: and Main stroetß and was illuminated with electric lights and decked with large pictures of Cleve land and Stevenson snrroundod with nags. After some inspiring mnsio by the band, the meeting was called to or der by Judge W. A. Ryan, who an nounced that W. L. Price would act as secretary, and a long list of vice-presi dents, comprising many of the leading Democi-rta of tfje county, was adopted. In taking tbe chair Judge Ryan was greeted with applause. The gentleman said: "We are assembled tonight to ratify the candidates wbo have been selected by the etnte Democratic convention, Yon will hear tonight of the merits of the candidates aud ivellas the principles of Democracy. You may hear of the mistakes of men, but they can no more influence tha doctrines of Democracy than could the mistakes of Moses affect the commandments. [Applauae.] We are here to ratify our candidates and to publicly protest against the enormous debt, both municipal and state, which has been built up by the Republican party. In our national government it is lirst necesaary to tear down the falee structure of political economy which bad been built up in 20 yeara, before we could reach the people with true re form." [Applauae.J The following telegrams were read by the eecretary: Stockton, Rapt. 1, 1894. To tha Jofferaonlan Doinoeratio OluD, Lot An- Roles, Cal.: Impossible tor me to come. Many thanke. lam organizing csnvaas. Will come later on to stay some time. James H. Budd. San Francisco, Sept. L 1894. Chairman beinocratlo ratification meeting, Los Angeleu, Cal. Greet the people for ns. Will be with you later. Budd and Jeter. San Bernardino, Aug. 31, 1894. Permit me to tender to the JefTer sonian club my moat heartfelt thanke for the kind endorsement of my nomina tion .'or attorney-general. Nothing would afford me more pleaanre than to be with my Democratic fellow citizens of Loa Angelea at the greet ratification meeting, and I certainly would be with you but for the fact tbat my friends of San Bernardino have tendered me a public reception to take place tbe same evening—Saturday. I wish you great succea, and bid yon Godspeed in the great cause of the Democracy. A. B. Paris. The irat speaker of the evening waa St. Julian for. The gentleman began by saying tbat tbey had assembled to voice their endorsement of the princi ples af tbe unterrified Democracy. Men of whom the people could well be proud had been nominated by tbe etnte conven tion. The leader on the ticket waa a typical (Jalifornian, and aa every bud wae the harbinger of a bloaeora, co on election day the bud of the convention would bloom as the roaa of victory. Democracy waa the party of the people and it erpressed the will of the people, and it waa again ready to do battle with the party of trusts and monopolies, the Republican party. They cay the Democratic party ia on the defensive. What for? The Republican party haa stolen the preai deucy and the supreme court, and yet they arraign Democracy, They have de based the currency of tbe country and given 500,000,000 acres of land to the railroad monopolise. They havo intro duced armed bands of Pinkertona to slay tbe workingmen of this country, and yet thoy aay Democracy ia on the defensive. The party in tbe past 18 montha bas mads a record of wbioh every citizen can well be proud. It has reduced the infamous tariff devised by the Republican party in the interest of the truata, and in the providence of God it will go on with ita great work of reform until this land is happy and prosperous. [Applause. 1 Hon. Olin M. Welborn waa tho next speaker, and stated that while he was ill he could not refrain from congratulating his fellow Democrats on the constantly brightening prOßpects of the Democratic party. With the good work Btarted at the state convention he waa satisfied that in November the great state of Califor nia would be redeemed from the twin curaes of monopoly and Republicanism. The ticket, beaded by that great, man, Jamea 11. Budd, and containing the name of that favoriteaon of Loa Augeies, George Patton, would bn covered with the laurels of victory. Under the lead ership of their great chieftain the party, defeated in 1888, sprang up from the aahea of defeat and achieved a glorioua victory for commercial liberty. The Republican party has been taught that while the people are patient public robbery and public wrong may become co monstroua that the peopio will riae in their might and c/uab the fomeutors thereof. That putrid spawn of monopo ly, McKinleyisin, had been wiped off the face of the earth by a para-lyziug blow. Work still romaiua for the Dem ocracy in tearing down the aggroseions of monopoly and lifting up the rights of the workingmen. All efforts at class legislation should be steadily repreaeed, for the free institutiona of America de pended ou tbe fullest constitutional freedom. Such ia the grand mieaion of Democracy, and the child is still unborn that will live to see the end of Demo cratic rule. [Applauae] Judge J. M. Kin ley, proßident of the Jellerßouiau club, spore next in terms of the higheat praise of the candidates on the state ticket, lie referred iv glowing terms to the record of J*men H. Budd and the fight be bad made againat the Southern Pacific railroad in the early day?. This great monopoly had been built up by the Republican party by ceding to it enormous blocks of land. Tne Democratic party bad to tight thia mighty corporation. The ieaue would be squarely met in the coming state election. George S. Patton spoke next and opened by saying that anyone seeing the large assemblage gathered would bs convinced that thia waa not a yellow dog year, 'ihe Republican cand'-'ntes were branded from head to foot v.ith tbe names of Burns and Stow. He had just returned from a convention which owned no boss and it had nominated a ticket on which no man was owned by a corporation. Ha then ontered into a violent arraignment of the Southern Pacific Railroad company, and gave a history of that corporation. The timo had come, he aaid, in which the people had a chance to even up the reckoning. An effort waa now|beine made iv Wash ington to pass a funding bill extending the period of payment of the railroad debt for 50 yeara at two psr cent per annum. If tbia law wae passed tbe people of Cali'ornia would have to pay this debt in freight rates and fares. The Republican party platform waa aa etlent aa the grave on this subject, while the Democratic party pledged itself to work against this bill, and wonld work for government ownership of the rail road and then permit every eastern rail road company to run its trains to Cali fornia. He then stated he was a mem ber of the chamber of comruerce and some months ago read an article to the effect that the deep soa harbor would be located at Santa Monica instead of San Pedro, written by J. M. Crawley. The chamber of commerce at aa election ex pressed its preference for San Pedro. He waa cent to Washington by that body and saw C. P. Huntington lobbying among the United States senators. The speaker had spoken before the senate committee on commerce on be half of San Pedro becauae he believed it waa best for the internets of Southern California. On returning home his motives had been impugned by men whom iv the past be had beeu proud to follow with devotion. He did not believe the people were in favor of a harbor at Santa Monica, and be proposed to maintain that position as long aa he could speak and vole aeainst it. He closed with a hearty endorse ment of the state ticket. Benator Dol Valle then made a brief apeech, in which he endoraed tho can- , didatee on the atato ticket in ringing terms. They had been nominated in a convention which waa absolutely without a boss. The Republican apeakers were attributing every evil under the Bun to tho rule of Cleveland. Tbe war between China and Japan, tbe trouble in Samoa and the Falb tidal wave were all ascribed to the Cleveland administration. The peeple ehonld not attribute the existing troubles in the United States to Cleveland, for the country wae suffering from the effecta of Republican misrule. [Applause.] He then spoke of the importance of electing Democratic railroad commissioners and members of the board of equal zation. Colonel Meaamoie waa next intro duced and received quite on ova tion. He aaid that like Saint Paul be bad been born out of due season, but he waa there in good season. He was a Jelfarsonian Democrat and for a quarter of a century he had often voted for men whom he bad not Bpoken with because they represented principles and not men, for the future of thia country depended on the principles enunciated by Jeffer son. There were many things in the Democratic party in the last two years that did not suit him. He had s contempt for the house of lords in Washington who had refused to carry out tho principles maintained and presented by Grover Cleveland. One Democratic senator bad admitted tbat he had made $3,000,000 out of the sugar trust. That is enough to damn him to eternal infamy. The country was just stepping on the thresbhold of tariff reform, and tbe houee would compel tbe house of lords to accept the meaeurea of tariff reform, or elee there would be a revolution. Politicians and millionaires have been running thia country for 15 yeara, and it remained for the great Damocratic party to redesm the country. He blamed the Democratic party becauae it did not j have the manhood to demand the coinage of free ailver. [Cheers.] If the Democratic party waa trns to itself it will give the country free Bilver. Ho believed all pen eiona and every officeholder should ho paid in silver, and it would soon be in circulation and relieve tho strain on the country. (Applause.) Eight years ago the idea was advanced in the halls of congress that the government should take possession of the bonded roads; so it was no new idea. A Republican ad ministration extended the mortgages on these roads. Now the attempt was be ing made to fund the bonds for 50 years, and it remained for the people to de mand that the government should take possession, and open them up to eastern railroads. There was no use fighting cyclones with straw brooms, and if the Democratic party did not stand up and do its duty the people would have no further use for the Democratic party. Frank Dominguez, N. C. Bledsoe, R. J. Adcock and H, L. Selig made briof speeches endoraing the ticket, and mean while it waa evident that large numbers of Pnpuliatß were present, for when Judgo Ryan rose to close the meeting some one shouted "Three cheers for Bowman !" and they were given with a force and vehemence that could be heard I several blocks away. Col. Paris Welcomed Home. San Bernardino, Sept. I.—Fifteen hundred citizsna, irreapective of party, convened at the opera house thia even ing to welcome Col. A. B. Paris home* tendering him an ovation aud congratu lating him upon his nomination as at torney ceneral. Some of tho leading Republicann and Populists of the county addressed the meeting, among whom were Judge Rolfe, John Rrown. jr , and N. A. Richardson. Hon. Byron Waters pre- Bided. Tho welcoming speech was de livered by W. J. Curtis, to whicti Col. Paris responded in a moat touching manner, referring to hia long and event ful experience in tbia city and exprsnß ing gratitude for the loyalty of the peo ple to h.m in the past.

Something of a eonaation was created in Atchison railroad circle] in Topeka by the appearance of a circular letter, which, it ia claimed, haa been sent to every stockholder of the road, inviting them to join the protection reorganizi tion committee by a deposit of their holdings, for which they will receive negotiable certuicatee of deposit in re turn. The purpose of tbe circular, as clearly indicated, is to prevent the fore closure on the Santa Fe property and to "inaugurate a new and clean adminie rration, thoroughly representative in character and in no wise identified with its preaent unfortunate embarrass ment." lv connection with the circu lar there are incloaures of numerous press clippinga reflecting seriously on Ex-President Reinhart. A CIIANOK ON TIIK JAT.APA, A dispatch cent out from Jslapa, Mex ico, says it ia atited there on good authority that Fred Adams, formerly superintendent of the Jalspa division of the Interoceanic railroad, has been ap pointed general manager of that system aud wiil assume bis new duties about Ssptember sth.

It ia aaid that Mr. Adams will inaugurate some im portant improvements in the operation of the road. THE ISLAND SUCAR TRADE. "The new tariff bill will aid Hawaii very much," said H. B. Rice, agent of tha Oceanic Steamship company, yester day, "Under the old bill, while island sugar was admitted duty free, it still had to compete with the 2-cent-a-pound bounty augar, but as tbat is now removed they are all on the aame footing. All other imported sugars have to pay a 40 per cent ad valorem duty." He thonght that buainssaof the island would greatly improve from now on. Tni! REPORT VERY WILD, C. G.
