VOL XVII. EAST LAS VEGAS, NEW MEXICO, TH UliS DAY DVENING,,; AUGUST 20, 1890. NO. 250 GOLDSTANDARD MEN The Yellow Metal Ucmccrats o Kentucky Meeting in State .Convention To-Day. CLEVELAND IN SYMPATHY The President of the New York life Insurance Company Speaks ont for Gold. ADDRESS TO BAR MEETING Louisville, Ky August 20. The indications are mat mere win oe large attendance this afternoon at the gold standard democratio convention Tbe purpose of the gathering is to elect delegates to tbe national caiberinff at Indianapolis, on September 2nd. Tbe convention will be called to order in tbe board of trade hall by Hon. George N Davie, of this city. As a preliminary, the lengthy call for the gathering will be read. This says among other things r , The choice is between the old democratio party and tbe teaobings of Jefferson, Jackson, Benton, Tilden, Cleveland and Carlisle: and anew party, taught by Altgeld, Tillman and Bryan. To us the choice is an easy one to make. We oast no reflections on the sincerity of those who may be lieve it right, or believe it to their interest, to advocate to tbe people these untried, dangerous and revolutionary theories. For a long time temptations in tbe form of attractive, but, we be' lieve, delusive promises of relief from financial distress, bave been offered to the people by populist candidates and agitators. Enthusiasm, and apparent temporary success, is not unusual under each conditions; for hard times often make shipwreck of political principles, for a time. But it never lasts." It has already been decided that Hon. George N. Davie will be chair man of tbe state central and executive committees. Col. W. C. P. Brackenridge and S. T. Trier, the latter the democratio aominee for lieutenant governor, will be named for electors for the state at large. IN 8YMPATHT WITH THE MOVEMENT. Indianapolis, Ind., August 20. There is now no longer any doubt but that the whole Cleveland regime, or at least tbe greater part of it, is In hearty sympathy with the sound money democratio movement. Some even go o ttt as to say that accurate informa. tion to that effect has ' been received from Gray Gables. Information re ceived in Indianapolis is to the effect that valuable acquisitions to tbe sound money democracy have lately been mad in New York. It is believed that the central figure in tbe number is Abram Hewitt. Mr. Bynum has re ceived word from Texas that a full delegation will come to the convention from that state. Similar information eomea from North Carolina. t Political Prlfoncr Released. LoifDON, England, August 20. John Daly, Irish dynamiter, who was serv ing a life sentence in Portland prison, was released, to-day. An Uncertain Market. Wall Street, N. Y., August 20. Speculation at tbe stock exchange was irregular in tbe early dealings, soma stocks showing gaius of HHVeI cent., while others lost about as much. Trading was light and was eonfined to the trading element. , Won't Accept the Scale. Leadvillk, Colo., August 20. A thousand striking miners, in session until nearly 11 o'clock, last night, passed resolutions refusing to acoept tbe old soale of wages until silver has reached an average quotation of aeveatjvfive cents pr ounce. ' Another Itinerary. . Uppee E-.w Hook, N. Y., August 20. Mr; Bryan guve out another itiner ary, this morning',' which contained the program of his movements from Erie to Lincoln.

Finally, a resolu tion was adopted, providing for tbe selection of four electors to . vote for Bryan and Sewall. Following this.the convention prooeeded to name a full tate ticket, candidates to be under the control of the fusion committee. ttWt give the Pops Aaythlof. Fort Worth, Texas, August 20 For nearly two hours, last night, tbe democratio state convention was in a row over the proposition submitted by the populist campaign committee, ask ing for seven of the fifteen electors for vice-president. At midnight tbe con vention declined tbe populist request for a division of the electors, on any ieruis, for president or vice president. The convention then adjourned sine die- ". ' The Political Headquarters. New York, N Y., August 20. Mark A. Henna, republican national com mittee chairman, arrived ia this city early this morning, and was at bis desk at tbe republican national head quarters. He says he will probably remain in the city to attend the big republican mass meeting whioh will be field In Carnegie hall, oa tbe night of August 7ih. Ex-President Harrison will be the obicf speaker and the demand for tickets ia great. Matters were verv quiet, this morn i -Z, t the democratic headquarters, at Hotel Bartboldl. Treasurer Wm. P. St. John has not yet returned from bis cation, and callers were tew. annual address. It was Made by Lord Russell Before tbe Aner ftcaa Bar Association, Saratoga Springs, N. Y , August 20. An epoch in the history of the American bar association was marked this morning by tbe fact that tbe an nual oration waa delivered by Lord Russell, of KUlowen, lord chief justioe of England. Lord Kussell took as his subject, 'International Arbitration," and for nearly two hours dilated upon tbe advantages of a peaceful method for settling disputes between nations, and its especial relations to the legal profession. . While a technical subject many of bis periods Were eloquentta grounded, and he was frequently later! rup'ed by applause. At tbe conclusion of his address, he was unanimous! tendered a vote of thanks. Tbe sessions of tbe section of legal education were dominoed this after coon, and this evening Counsellor Urackanthorpe, of the English bar, will speak upon "The Uses of Legs History." Saratoga, N. Y., August 20. No greater ovation was ever presented to any speaker at Saratoga, tb.an teat whioh was accorded Lord Russell, lord chief jus tree of England, wheaf be entered the convention hall, this morn ing, to address the American bar asso ciation In its nineteenth annual con vention, on international law. Exactly at 10 :30 o'olock, President Storey stepped to tbe front of the plat, form and introduced the distinguished jurist. Lord Russell spoke easily, im pressively and with great force, mere was no gesticulation. He stood behind high desk, with his bands nrmly grasping the sides, and read hi ad dress in even, convincing tones. In dealing with tbe subject of arbi tration, be thought it right to sound a note of caution, but it would, indeed, be a reproach to our nineteen oenturies of Christian civilization. If there were now no belter method, for settling International differences, than the cruel and debasing methods of war. May we not hope that tbe people of these states and tbe people of the Mother land kindred people may, in this matter, set an example, of lasting in fluence, to tbe world P A OOLDITB. A President of a Life Insurance Company De clares Himself. Columbus, Ohio, August 20 State Insurance Commissioner Matthews has received a copy of a letter written by President John A. Mct'all, if tbe New York Lite insuraooe company, in which be said: No oiroular has been sent out by any of their officials to policy holders on tbe political situation, ine interview was intended as an answer; in part, to the questions propounded by policy holders of many years' standing, as to what kind of dollars the company would use in paying their policies,, in case the country adopted a silver basis. He had but one reply to make, viz: That as premiums on their policies are paid in United States dollars, so tbeir policies would be paid in tbe same kind of dollars. Policy holders in this company in the United States, up to date, bave paid their premiums in dollars that have been dollars, not ; only in the United States, but in every other- country in the world. . It is his judgment -that in tbe event of . the country's declaring for free silver at tbe ratio of 16 to 1, dollars of tbe United States that they would pay to policy claimants, Would not be worth 100 cents the world over. However much he might like to take neutral ground on this -question, be cause of honest difference from his views that prevails in many states, yet be cannot justly do so, in adherence to what he believes to be his duly as president of this company to hundreds of thousands insured with them.
