(From Our "War Correspondent.) Tlio next scow load of garbage and buz rards that anchors in Alexandria waters may be pent to the bottom, not with kero sene oil and battle-axes, but by n shower or shot and shell iroin the guns of indignant citizens. "Kay to the Washington people," said Mayor Strauss, of Alexandria, yester day afternoon, "that, if necessary, I can have 500 men with rifles in their hands on our river front at any moment to pro tect our people from this garbage outrage." Mr. Strauss was not excited, but he was terribly in earnest. He was deliberate and emphatic. "You can say, further," he continued, that tiie bankers and solid men or the city arc behind this determination, and nothing but a revenue cutter can protect one of these scows in the nuisance they have been committing." It ib evident that while Alexandria Is not an armed camp, ft is a camp that could be armed against the intruding scow fleet In less time than It would take the battle ship Texas to blow the biggest cruiser ia tha herring fleet to the bottom of the Po tomac. It is also not altogether a fancy scene presented in The Times cartoon of the ponding war against the scows It was re ported yesterday that the scow fleet -will Juslst on passing the Alexandria fortress and other Hues of defense, so that the rattle of rifle, and the boom of cannon may be heard in the gray dawn of any of these fine June mornings. Mayor Strauss has not made nn idle threat. He is backed up b the insulted citizens to a in an and woman. 1 hey all ap plaud his summary way or dealing itb these marine night liners and they are equally high in praise or Health Officer Miller, who took summary revenge on the first scow that goc within reach of the ax and coal oil can of Superintendent Dobic, of the street department. Superintendent Dobie is still in his fighting clothes He was taking it cool and easj at his residence on Tairfax street yesterday morning when he was called on by The Times He is quite proud of the feat bj which he sent the first fcow down to the bottom, -which, not being very far from tho surface, loft a very melan choly iart of the wrecked offense with its heels up in the air There is an inter esting bit of bistorj connected with the crew of the first sunken scow. It is said that thoy stood the voyage as long as they could and eventually got unspeak ably seasick. They -were aground and the breeze wn6 blowing strong from all sides directly on the crew, who were two, a captain and a first lieutenant. "Nothing but a first clnss jag will cure this tlnng," said the lieutenant, "Then a Jag it is," said the captain. "Lower the captain's yawl from the davits." said tho captain to the lieutenants "You've got your Jag already," said the lieutenant; thete kind of scows don't have no yawls nor davits " "Then lets us sMlm out O'Grady." said the captain, and thej plunged in and wam to the Maryland shore. As soon as the privates had disappeared Commodore Dobie ordered out his canoe fleet and -with a trust! marine with a battle ax they rowed over to the deserted scow which was emitting distressing odors and flying other signals of distress, and between the conflagation and the fctmenng of her keel down it went, upside down amid the acclaim of tho crowds on shore. The second scow -was caught in the act right opposite Queen street wbnjT and it was sunk in an uncommonly deep part of the angry river. At low -water yesterday there wasn't a piece of thlh last -wreck in Bight. Tiielieutenantatpoliceheadquarters wn6aked about ltand he 6aid thatMiehad been sunk under ordcrb from the mayor to Superintendent Dobie. This latter officer is still scanning the horwon for the next scow and it is Just an cure to go down as that the Bun goes down regularly at Alexandria eery evening. Judging from the -war talk in official circles and among the citizens generally It will be a perilous undertaking to run the blockade of this port of nou-entry on your life. It has been denied that the contents of these scows get loote in the river Alex andrians think and say otherwise. The two gentlemen who own the boat-house at the foot of Queen 6treet said jeeterday that one afternoon, whenthe wind was from the East, a whole dead zoo came floating In to their wharf. Washington cats and dogs, and pigeons, geese, turkeys, and other long-dead mammals and birds rioated about In Tearful review. Both of these arc quiet Industrious and sober citizens. They told what they saw, or at least a part of it, and the Imagination can picture the rest. "Of course we are going to fight," said another wharf man. "What would those contractors think if I w ere tocarry a basket ful of bacilli and other wiggle tails and dump them in the fish pond right in the rear of their residences. Or w hat would the K-orld think if we submitted to all this and slept with our -windows down all night and held our handkerchiefs to our noses all day. Yes. sir, jou can sny that every time a scow is knocked out of ngbt I eay amen. Hit "em n comiu' and a goin'. Mr. S 1' Bayly, the superintendent of the Baltimore company having the gar bage contract, said last night that the con tract with the Commissioners called for the delivery of the garbage outside of the District limits. All of the garbage, he said, with the exception of about thirty loads was to be delivered at Kint i landing, which is clearlj outside of the District limits. "If," he said, "any of the garbage is being delivered within the limits in the ummer time, without the special permit of the Commissioners, such delivery 16 wit liout warrant by the contract," The Alexandrians are prepared to prove that some or the stuff is delivered Just opposite their city, and hence the contract Js violated It isrcild, in fact, that the load on the first scow that was Sunk was intended for a Mr. Sweenv, who lives opposite Alexandria. Mr? Bajly also said that if the scows are anchored within the Dim riot waters "wjihout a reasonable excuse the contract is violated. The anchoring of the scows at which the Alexandrians took umbrage took place within the Jlistrict -waters. The tS.ieateued suit agaiiist the city of Alexandria lias no terrors for the people there Mr Hubert Snowden. one of the aldermen, said yesterday that the au thorities neither reared a suit nor its re mit He believes that there was ample provocation for the summary vengeance taken on the Intruders, and expressed tho convlctiou that tills kind of d if case would always be met "with heroic treatment.

Louisville, Ky. , June 25 The admin istration and Secretary Carlisle were cer tainly favorites in tho Democratic State convention here to-day The silverjtes went into the district meet ings in the morning and into the convention at noon with confidence In the disrtict meetings they were beaten 2 to 1. Tbey claimed four out of the eleven dis trict membersoftbecommitteconresolutions, but the administration men claim that the committee stood 8 to 3 originally against free 6ilver, and as completed 9 to -1. The complexion of this committee could not have been changed by the appointment of both membcrs-at-largefromthesilverites, but when Judgo William Beckner, as tempo rary chairman, divided tho members-at-large, giving one of the two to each side, the silver men felt that they had been outclassed, although thoy would not confess to being outnumbered SILVERITES' LAST HOPE. They claimed a victory in the election of Beckner oer Stone, but after the former divided the appointments equally on all the committees and announced his conser vative views, no claims were made on him. Stone would have appointed only "sound money" men on the committees. Judge Beckner is a "sound money" man, but favored Gen Hardin for governor Although Gen. Hardin favors free coinage, he has been supported throughout-by many who insist on a sound money platform for him. The silver men on the committee on reso lutions are. First district, August Coul ter; second, W. T Ellis; third, John S. Rhea; at large, J. D 'Clardy. The gold men on the committee are. Fourth, E. D Walker; fifth, J M. Atherton; sixth, R.

The feature of the day was the defeat in his home district of Senator J. C. S. Black burn for member of the committee on reso lutions by Prof. Arthur Yeager, a man of pronounced gold standard views, but who has devoted his time to college work aud not to politics. Seuator Blackburn nspired to the chair manship of this committee and expected to have a majority of its members with him for free coiuage and against Cleveland and Carlisle. When Blackburn was defeated in the Seventh district it was ascertained thai the Hardin men did not want to be embarasscd by bis appointment as oneofthe'uembers-at-large and then Mr. W. T Ell" 'of the Sec ond district, offered Senator Blackburn his proxy. Objections were raised in the convention on the announcement of Blackburn's name for the committee from the Second dis trict and no further erforts in that direction were made. ADMINISTRATION ENDORSED. Numerous dilatory motions -were in dulged in, the Clay men wanting an ad journment till to-morrow. As neither the committee on credentials nor the one on resolutions were ready to report, this filibustering was kept up forever two hours -with much disturbance. The committee on resolutions was ready to report at i p. m., but delated its report awaiting the outcome of the credential com mittee, which -was fighting over contests among the delegates from Louisville and Newport. Senator sLndsay prepared the majority report on resolutions which embraced a strong, houest money plank and Indorsed Cleveland and Carlisle by name for their financial policy and administration. It was signed by nine of the thirteen mmebers or the committee. There were two minority reports, one 6igned by Rhea and Ellis rorthefreecoinnge of silver at 16 to 1, and the other simply reaffirming the platform or 1892, signed by Clardy and Coulter. BUSINE&S DELAYED. There was intense feeling because the fight between the Hardin and Clay men on seating delegates in the committee on credentials delayed tho resolutions and the Garbage War May the proceedings of the convention, but nothing could bo done toward facilitating busiucss. Several hundred motions to adjourn were voted down and the convoutlon remained waiting, although the committee on cre dentials at 11 p. in. announced it could not report till after midnight. Senator Lindsay and Chairman Berry refused to report tho resolutions or do any thing till tho report on credentials came in. BRIDGETWS TORN HULL Consuls Disputing Whether She Is a Filibuster orNot.

As a result of this meeting the follow ing address has been sent to Democratic leaders throughout the country. Soon after the adjournment of the silver convention held In this city, on the 12th and 13th Instant, many Democrats, repre senting several States ot the Union, held a meeting here for the purpose of consider ing the best method of securing the free and unlimited coinage of both Bdver and gold into full legal tender money of ultimate redemption, at the ratio of 16 to 1, without regard to the financial policy of other countries, aud It was unanimously agreed as the confideut opinion of that conference WHERE THEIR HOPE LIES. 1. That the only hope of securing the free and uulimltcd coinage ot &il erat 16 to 1, is through the action of the Democratic party. 2. That n large majority of the Demo ocratic partj of the country and a very large majority of the people ot the United States, irrespective o party, favor such coinage. :i. That tiie success of the Democratic party m tho campaign of 18UG largely, if not wholly, depends on the earnest and activeadvocacy of the free and unlimited coinage of silver. " 4. That a thorough organization of the Democrats or the several States who ravor tfie free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold on equality of 1G to 1 is a necessity and the proper means or controlling the action of the uational Democratic convention of 189G upon this vitally important question. WAY TO AVOID FRICTON. 5. That in older to a-void friction and the complaint of such Democrats as oppose the free coinage of silver, we will not invoke the action of tho regular machinery of the party whose duty it is to act for tho whole party, without regard to differ ences of opinion upon a single question. Therefore, we, the undersigned, were appointed a committee to take such steps as may be necessaiy to a thorough national organization of siler Democrats, and for the purpose we respectfully invite you to meet us at Washington, D. C', on tho 1 tth day of August, 1805, in Older that we may confer and co operate in establishing such organization and you are requested to bring with you sucli Democratic friends as ore in full sympathy with this purpose.
