tt convention was reconvened this morn I
ing at 10 oclock when a report on perma

which was adopted made Reed of Nez
Perces chairman After PresidentReed
was escorted to his seat he made a speech
as follows
Gentlemen of the Convention
The distinguished honor you have con
ferred by the election of me as permanent
chairman of this patriotic and intelligent
ronvention the first Democratic conven
tion in Idaho calls for the most profound
gratitude J cannot fully express to you
my high appreciation of this mark of your
esteem and confidence It is a great privi
lege to be permitted to serve even ns a pri
vate in the ranks of the Democrats of
to
Idaho but to oe selected preside overtime
highest councils of the party is a pro emi
nent distinction of which the most exalted
might well bo proud I is fit and appro
priate fellow Democrats as we gather
around the camp fires of our party t
take council for the contest and conse
crate ourselves to the peoples cause to
run back in memory to the morning of
March 4 1S01 when its great founder
without pageant or parade gave utterance
S t the fundamental principles that under
lie the Democratic party On that memor
able day Thomas Jefferson rode on horse
back clad in studiously plain clothes with
out attendant to the capitol dismounted
tied his horse t the fence and walked un
ceremoniously into the Senate chamber and
in his inaugural breathing boundless phil
anthrcdhy uttered these remarkable
words I am about to enter fellowcitzens
t entr fclowcitzens S
on the exercise of duties which comprehend L
everything dear and loyal to you It is
proper that you should understand what I
deem the presidential principles of our
government and consequently of those who
seek to shape its administration I will
compress them in the narrowest compass
They will be equal and exact justice t all
men of whatever state or persuasion re
ligious or political Peace commerce and
honest friendship with all nations entang
ling alliance with none Uhe support of the
state governments in all their right
a the most competent administration of
our concerns and the surest bulwarks
against antirepublican tendencies The
preservation f the general government in
its whole constitutional vigor a the sheet
anchor of our peace at home and safety
abroad a zealous watch of their right of
election by the people a mild and safe cor
rection of abuses which are lopped by the
sword of revolution where peaceable
means are unprovided absolute acquies
cence in the decisions of the majority the
vital principle of republics from which
there is no appeal but to force the vital
principle and immediate parent of despot
ism A well disciplined militia our best
reliance in peace and for the first moment
of war till regulars may relieve them
The superiority of the civil over the military
tary authority economy in the public ex
pense that labor may be lightly burdened
the honest payment of our debts and the
sacred preservation of the public faith
the encouragement of agriculture and of
commerce as its handmaid the diffusion
of information and the arraignment of all
abuses at the bar of public reason freedom
of religion freedom of the press freedom
of the person under the protection of the
the habeas corpus trial by jury impartially
selected These form the bright constella
tion which has gone before us and guided L
our steps through the age of revolution and
reformation The isdom of our age and L
the blood of our heroes have been devoted L
to their attainment They should be the
creed of our political faith the text of civic
instruction the touchstone by which to try
the services of those we trust and should L
we wander from them in moment of error
or alarm let us hasten to retrace our steps c
and t regain the road whioh alone leads to
peace liberty and safety
His accession to the presidency and the
delivery of that inaugural marked not only
an era in the onward march of the republic
of civil and religious freedom but
the opening of a glorious epoch in
human progress A few years ago
in correspondence with that noble friend
of liberty that grand tribune of the peo
ple a statesman a Democrat grounded jn
the faith and tried in the cruciablo of his
5 party by service and for seventeen years
practically a leader in the House of Repre
ir sentatives Sauiuel J Ran alto whom I
put the inquiry where should I find the
clearest exposition of Democratic faith I
his reply was I sincerely believe Jeffer
sons first inaugural delivered
frst March 4
1S01 contains the clearest and most inter
esting statement of the Democratic faith
And then I turned tho pages of history
again and found that these same principles
constituted the best elements of the free
government of ancient times that they
shone along the succeeding ages through
the annals of the British government that
are found in Magna Charta the Declara
tion of In dependence the constitution of the
United States In the farewell address of
Washington in the state papers of the
early Presidents in the speeches of great
statesmen and in the platforms of party
conventions down to tho present day For
sixty years before the civil war great and
good men guided by those principles gov
erned this country added to its domains
along the Atlantic seaboard the magnificent
cent territories of the almost boundless
west stretched across the Rocky mountains
t the far off shores of the Pacific opened
up t the sea the borders of tho land t the
south through which flows the Father of
Waters on the shores of which are laid
deep the foundations of mighty states
numbered among their advocates a Jeffer
son Madison Monroe
Madisont Jackson
Polk and a
host of noble and patriot statesmen and
made this a hind of liberty and an asylum
for the oppressed of every clime I find
I these principles enunciated in the plat
forms promulgated by the Democratic
party and on these principles let u lay the
foundation of Democracy i Idaho upon
them win a glorious victory for the main
tenance of free government I now declare
this convention duly organized for the
transaction of business

Robert Bonner Talks About his New Marc
and Gives a Point on her
Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
NEW YORK Aug 27 Robert Bonner
owner of Maud S queen of the turf had
something to say today about horses and
trotting horses in particular Mr Bonner
said I dont expect to see any horse trot
in 204 Mr Stanford and I agree on a
number of things especially on the subject
of Sunols career Considering her age I
believe the mares performance last Satur
day at Chicago when she trotted without
break in 2lO U to be the greatest feat yet
accomplished on the turf Ill give you a
point that was not published about that
race The time she made on the lat quar
ter was not printed It was 31M seconds
Add this to her time for the first quarter
and youll see she was going at a 207 gait
for the half mile and at a 200 gait for the
last l quarter She trotted against a strong
wind for the first and second quarters
making them in 32 and 3 seconds respect
ively and between the half and three
quarter mile posts she went with the wind
This shows what
a remarkable feat it was
for a fouryearold Sesonds are brief
periods of time but in this kind of racing
they mean a great deal Just think Sunol
a baby almost beside horses that have made
the records came within a second and
threequarters of heating the best one made
by Maud S when she was eleven years old
I consider that a fouryearold the spring
is not any better than a threeyearold in
the fall because there is a resting time dur
ing the winter when they are out of trim
So Sunol has all the time between now and
November to train and the result may be
an improvement in her speed °
Referring to a recent statement printed
in a daily New York paper that Sunol
would not be likely to trot in public after
passing into Mr Bonners hands the latter
lattr
said That is a mistake for I am now in
correspondence with Marvin with a view of
having him handle Sunol next year in her
fiveyearold form

NEW YORK Aug 27The letter given
below vas written by P M Arthur chief
engineer of the Grand International
Brotherhood Locomotive
Engineers to
n engineer on the Third Avenue Elevated
road The letter is in response to a letter
on the subject of the New York Central
strike and tho first uttrance of Arthur
which fully defines hisposition towards the
Central strikers and Knights of Labor
The letter is as follows
CLEVELAND Ohio August 23
11 H Holmar t
DEAR SIR AND BROTHER Your letter
of the 23d inst with Powderlys letter and
other clippings from New York papers en
closed is received In rojlv I will say I
have not received any letter from Pow
dery He claims to have written me a
private letter on the trouble and wants me
to define my position If he considers his I
letter that
which appears in the news
papers a private one 1 eon know that I can
answer a letter that reaches mo in that
wayIt is unnecessary for Poxvderly or any
one else to ask me to define the position of
the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers
in the present troubles on tho New York
CentralDThe policy of the brotherhood is
well known to him and the
public as it has been repeatedly
explained from the public platform and
published in the newspapers He says
Some time ago I telegraphed him mean
ing me that I would meet him in Cleveland
and when I arrived there I could not find
him high or low My telegram had been
received by him but my efforts t locate
him were fruitless
Now the facts In the case sn far as I
can recollect are these Some four years
ago I received a telegram from Powderlj
requesting me to meet him at the Union
depot in Cleveland on the arrival of a cer1 I I
tain train on the Lake Shore road Owing to
m absence from my office did not receive
his mesrage untill afttr the departure of
the train and I so informed him by letter
addressing it to him at Scranton I do not
believe he stopped over and looked forme
If he had ho would meS
I have had no difficulty
in linring me at my office or at my home
as 11m always at one or the other when in
Cleveland He tells a wilful false
hood when he says others have
been unable to find me when they tried
todo so Any man who tries to find me
when I am in Cleveland can do so with so
very little effort and no man whether I
leader or private in the ranks of labor ever
came to my office that he a not treated
courteously While differ with men a to
the best methods to be employed secure
a certain end I always have been liberal
enough to concede to every man the lberq
riirhts and nrivileffps T rmlr for mv
self When the troub
sel present trouble on
the New York Central A first occurred
I advised the engineers to abstain
from all participation in it and to
attend strictly to their own business Igave
tho same advice when the strike occurred
on the Gould system a few years ago My
advice to the Brotherhood of Engineers
when the men employed in the other
branches of the railroad service had been
on strike was to mind their own business
and not to anything that did not properly
belong t them as engineers Can Pow
derly say the same I think not When
ever the engineers have been on
strike we never asked any other
labor organization to assist us I is trne
some of the members of the ordgr during
the Chicago Burlington Quincy strike
asked the switchmen to quit but they did
it on their own responsibility not by tne
authority of tho organization Conso
quently I hold we are perfectly justified
perfecty justfed
in maintaining a strictly neutral position
when others are engaged in a conflict
with their employers Pow erly accuses
the members of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers of taking the
places of the striking firemen I that is
true the division of which they are mem
bers will deal with them I is not within
the province of my authority to deal with
wih
individual members I wonder if Powderiv
had the knights expelled who Powderv
places ot our men on the C1 B Ql 1

NEW YORK Aug 2iThe Knights of

now is to await

It is rumored this morning that tho
switchmen on Pittsburp Fr Wayne Sr
Chicago road had struck
The general managers of all the roads
centering in Chicago were in ssession
nearly all day discussing the strike in the
Stock Yards Switching association The
Dost positive action taken during the day
was the adoption of two resolutions touch
ing i a kindred subject The first declared
that under no circumstances would
the demands of striking switchmen
be increased pay be granted and
second they reemphasized the action
of Monday dissolving the Switohingassp
ciaion While it may have been held in
abeyance up to this time it Is now certainly
d lissolved and it is hoped by the general
manager that this will offer a speedy solu
ion ot the strike As the roads are doing
their own switching considerable time was
consumed in the discussion and adoption of
certain needful regulations to control the
interchange of freight traffic Che gen

Upon reassembling the platform was
presented by oxSecretary Vilas I de
nounce the McKinley bill and declares
hattho force bill is an attempt to per
petuate t e policy and power of the Repub
ican party denounces Speaker Reed for
the acbtrary assumption of authority in
his attempt to disfranchise political oppon
ents demands thai the present tariff be
reduced and that taxation should be low as
also public expenses
The following are the planks bearing on
the Bennett school law ot Wisconsin Wo
oppose any diversion of the public school
funds to sectarian uses The Democratic
party created the public school system of
this state and will always zealously guard
and maintain it The Bennett law is a local
manifestation of the settled Republican
policy of paternalism favoring laws providing
viding for the compulsory attendance at
hpol of all children We believe the law
n force prior to to the passage of the Ben
nett law guaranteed to all the children of
state an opportunity for education and in
this essential feature was stronger that the
Bennett law
The underlying principle of the Bennett
law is a needless interference with parental
rights and liberty of conscience The pro
visions for its enforcement place the ac
cused at the mercy of school directors and i
deny his right to trial by jury according to
the law of the land
UTo mask this tyrannical invasion of in
dividual and constitutional rights the shal
low plea of a defense of the English lan
guage is advanced The history of this
state is largely peopled with foreign citi
zens I is a demonstrated fact that the <
nature of the case and the necessities of
the situation are advancing the growth of
the English language to the greatest pos
sible extent Wo therefore denounce thai
law as unnecessary unwise unconstitu
tional unAmerican and undemocratic and
demand its repeal
The platform was unanimously adopted
No opposition whatever was offeacd to the
plank demanding the repeal of the Ben
nett law and the speakers in their ad
dresses nominating the various candidates
for governor all denounced the law as an
unnecessacipieco oLpatQrnalism While
declaring they oJPlt favor of teaching
Ehglish in all the schools they said thoy
wero opposed to compulsion
The nominating speech was not finished
till 0 oclock The ballots did not show aay
great change untilthe sixth when a stam
pede set in and when it became certain he I
would be nominated some one moved to
make it unanimous General Bragg im
mediately protested and insisted on a roll

nomination unanimous and again Bragg

In the House
WASIIIXGTOX Aug 2iWhen the House
met this morning the opponents of the lard
bill led by Mason of Illinois at once began
filibustering The illfeeling developed led
to a personal affray this afternoon between
Representative Beckwith of New Jersey
and Representative Wilson of Washington
The roll was being called upon a ruling
by Speaker Reed respecting the calling to
order of Representative Cannon of Illinois
by Representative Enloe of Tennessee for
words spoken in debate
Representative Mason was criticising
Cannon for the tone of his remarks which
Enloe objected Between them sat Repre
sentative Bockwith and Wilson on the
other side of Representative Lehlbach
They all took part sotto voce in the con
troversy when suddenly Wilson and Beck
with were seen to rise and the former
struck at the latter lightly touching himfi
on the breast Lehlbach sprang be
tween them and Wilson
Wison was
unable to reach around him
Representative Williams of Ohio anxious
tostop tho affray seized Beckwith from
behind and forced him to his seat with con
siderable vigor At this Beckwith turned
hIs I attention to his supposed assailant in
the rear and it required tho efforts of two
or three Republicans to prevent a collision
Williams succeeded in assuring Beckwith
that he had no hostile intentions and the
latter resumed his seat The incident was
over in a few seconds and added but little
to the excitement then existing on the
floor but it was the occasion for jeering
and laughter among the Democrats who
witnessed it The eagle and mace of the
sorgeantutarms were hurriedly borne to
the of conflict and atits
scene confct atts appearance
all was quiet Wilson said afterwards in
explanation ofthe difficulty that Beck
with had applied a most offensive epithetto
him aud on the spur of the moment he had
struck him
McAdoo attacked Cannons resolutions
bitterly What right has the latter to in
dict his peers and hold them up to the
country as leaving the hall for the purpose
of evading resnonsibility After ridicul
ing Cannons statesmanship and historical
knowledge he cast his store of ridicule
upon Cameos love for the farmer
Cannon rose to reply He admitted he
was not a great stMcsuian andafsaad
mitten the superiority of the gentleman
from New Jersey His friend abounded in
one thing and that was wind and under
pressure it went out Loud laughter
There was instantly great confusion and
disorder McAdoo shouted out that he
wanted the words to go upon the record as
a specimen of Cannons vulgarity Caruth
of Kentucky suggested the propriety of
clearing the galleries ladies
Again McAdoo shouted out to Cannon
I you can afford to let that go on record
as a specimen of your stable jockey wit I
can atTord to have it there I can not in
dulge in blackguardism with you You
ought to argue with stable jockeys Thats
your size
Later in the day Cannon apologized fOr
his statement saying he hoped a vulgar
construction would not be put upon it
The speaker then stated that the vote re
curred upon the question of sustaining the
decision of the speaker holding lard un
finished business
McAdoo rose toss question of privilege
The gentleman from Illinois Cannon had
made what he called an explanation but
what he McAdoo and those around him
construed as an additional attackupon him
He asked two minutes in which to reply
but at the speakers request withdrew his
remarks for tho present On sustaining
the decision the House was once more left
without a quorum The two minutes
granted to McAdoo were then accorded
him Ho said he had hoped the gentleman
from Illinois by a frank and manly state
ment would have purged himself of the
suspicion of having injected vUlgarity
into the debate But he had not
cone so A gentleman was
justified under no circumstance in ever
descending to vulgar indecent and black
guard remarks or remarks that could be
construed as such
Cannon said he could add nothing to
what he had said He had disclaimed the
intention of saying anything that would
wound the feelings or propriety of the most
delicate
A call of the House was ordered and dis
closed the presence of 19S members A
lost to dispense with further proceedings was
lostBrosius
Brosius offered a resolution for the ar
rest absentees directing sergeantat
arms to telegraph for absent members and
revoking all leaves of absence except those
granted on account of illness Agreed to
and the House adjourned

PACIFIC SHORT LINE
The Mystery Surrounding It ft
Finally Solved
IT WAS A UNION PACIFIC SCHEME
flow the Debt to the Government Was to ba
Paid BnlHss Goes to New York
Charged with Arson
Sioux CITT Iowa Aug 27Special
telegram to THE HEKMD A special from
Chicago says The Pacific Short Line was
o iginally a scheme of the Union Pacific to
connect it with their lines over which the
government has no control and then turn
over the subsidized lines to the govern
ment The subsidized lines are the main
lines from Council Bluffs to Ogdeiuand the
old Kansas Pacific from Kansas City to
Denver and Cheyenne The scheme fell
through and the Manhattan Trust com
pany which bad charge of it for the Union
Pacific now thinks there is a big thing in it
to sell out to some company needing a trans
Missouri connection This was conceived
by thin alliance of the Union Pacific with
the Northwestern thus shutting out all
eastern roads from Union Pacific traffic
The Rock Island and the Burlington
Missouri Pacific have Denver connections
and with the Southern Pacific by way of
the Rio Grande to Ogden the Milwaukee is
frozen out at the Missouri river President
Roswell Miller of the Milwaukee is now
in Now York negotiating with the Manhat
tan Trust company for the road The lat
ter company is also contemplating operat
ing the Short Line independently with the
Southern Pacific at Ogden the Illin
ois Central and Chicago Milwaukee
iS St Paul and Hock Island at Sioux
City The Great Northern and Union
Pacific are also trying to secure control
President Miller of the Milwaukee has se
cured the refusal of the road if sold and
therefore it is almost a sure thing that it
will be completed either by the Manhattan
Trust company or the Milwaukee road
Thus the veil has been lifted from the mys
terious road
