I congratulate the Democracy of Ohio on this vast assembly now present. It means something. Seldom in the history of the party, and I have been here to see, has there 4. The Democratic party Is, as it always haa been, opposed to sumptuary legislation and unequal taxation in any form, and is in favor of the largest liberty of private conduct con sistent with the public welfare and the rights of others, and ol regulating the liquor t ratio and providing against the evils resulting therefrom by a Judicious and properly graded license system. 5. The abuses of the present contract sys tem In our State Penitentiary, by which the firodncte of the labor of convicttutre brought n competition with the products of honest labor to the great detriment of the latter, are injurious and unwise, and ought to be cor rected; and the promises of the Republican party to abolish this sy6tem are shown to be false nd hypocritical by its failure to do so while It has had the power. 6. The protection of the Government Is due to all Americrn citizens, native and foreign born, abroad as well at at home. 7. We reaffirm the resolutions of the State Conventions of Ohio In 1880, 1881 and 1882, and of the Democratic National Conventions of 1872, 1876 and 1880, demanding a thorough re form and purification of the Civil Service, and charge that the Republican party has violated every pledge It has heretofore given for the reform thereof, and has failed during its long administration of the Government to correct even the most crying abuses; and we demand, therefore, a change in the executive administration of the Government itself as the reform first of all necessary (as made still more manifest by the recent Star-route trials), thereby ousting corrupt rings confederated to protect crime and prevent the punishment of criminals, and. by so doing,mako it possible again to punish fraud and theft in the public service. NOMINATIONS FOR GOVERNOR. After the adoption of the platform, the Chair announced the nominations for State officers was next in order, that for Gover nor coming first. Sen. T. E. Powell, of Delaware, arose and placed in nomination Gen. Durbin Ward. Uproarious applause followed the announcement of Gen. Ward's name. When the convention had again been re stored to quiet, ex-Senator Thurman arose and seconded the nomination. After speaking touchingly of Gen. Ward's war record and claims upon the Democratic party of Ohio, Mr. Thurman closed as fol lows: In conclusion, gentlemen, let me warn you against taking a course that may seem to sub ordinate the principles, tho doctrines and as pirations of the grand old Democratic party to a single issue. The very fundamental prin ciples of Democracy make It the enemy of sumptuary laws, and such laws will ever be JUDGE GEO. HOADLY, DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE FOR GOVENOR OF OHIO. assembled at your Capital so grand an assem blage of the leading and representative men, of the bene and sinew of those who cast the votes, as I see assembled on this occasion. You arc from all over the State; from the Queen City on the South, circling around on ward up into the great Northwest, where we, down in our region, so often watch and -wait and listen, and so are seldom disappointed in hearing the grand old Democratic thunder rumbling In the heavens in that region up here to the regenerated, disenthralled, grand old Cuyahoga; bright faces flushed with tri umph from the city of beauty that sita like a gem on the waves on blue Erie's sea; and then come along to this wheat belt, where the un dersigned and others reside, where they raise wheat and Democrats with backbone in them ; and along through the mines, workshops, on hill and In dale, wherever industry strikes a hammer or agriculture turns its plow, they have come to us to-day to make it a gala day; while striv ing each in the earnestness which betokens triumph for his candidate, yet in the spirit of Democratic gentlemen, determine to hurrah for the victorious candidate, and buckle on the armor, for his election when the battle comes. To achieve success we have but to bathe anew the grand old party in the spirit of the fathers, in the spirit of the immortal Jefferson and Jackson, in that spirit which is constantly struggling for popular right and the enlargement of popular freedom, and is continually vigilant in the restriction of gov ernmental interference with any form of personal liberty down to tho very minimum consistent with .the proper preservation of law and order, a spirit which relies upon the real domestic fireside home virtues of economy and frugality, instead of onerous taxation, exacting burdens under whatever name, as the true basis of national, as it is of individual, wealth and prosperity, which relies upon the cultivation of personal endeavor, personal control, as distinguished from external force, as the true basis of manly temperance and all the other cognate virtues. And now, fellow-citizens, that same spirit of the fathers of which 1 have been speaking, and which has made our homes pleasant here, answered in the spirit of true philanthropy that great question: "Am I my brother's keeper?" when that question was asked of the down-trodden and oppressed of other lands: Tes, we are, in that scn6e, our brother's keeper; or In that spirit of the old Democratic party which goes forth in sympathy across oceans and mountains and sympathizes with the oppressed wherever the tyrant's rod is raised, whether it be over some poor bleeding back beneath the Russian knout, or over in the green island of the sea, where, under quick trials, the victims ascend the scaf fold and step off to glory. Wherever oppres sion raises its head; wherever the tear of the oppressed falls and his hand is uplifted to us, the Democrat's great heart goes out in sympa thy for him. We are going to nominate the ticket to-day that is to be elected. We are go ing through no sham performances. The vic tory this fall will be the forerunner of what is to come, and will tend to permanently trans fer the grand old State of Ohio from the Re publican roll over to the Democratic, and let us see if we can't do better with it. We are so determined that in the printing of our Demo cratic lexicons we will have no such word as fail. The report of the Committee on Platform was then read as follows, and immediately adopted amid great enthusiasm : THE PLATFORM. The Democracy of Ohio in convention as sembled hereby reaffim the principles of the party as expressed in primaries, State and National platforms, In regard to personal lib erty, the true functions of government, and as embraced in the political creed expounded by the great founder of the Democratic party Thomas Jefferson. The application of these principles to our present condition demands the purification or the public service, the punishment of the robbers of the public treas ury, the equalization of all public bur dens, the arrest of the proflicacy and extrav agance that corrupt the administration of public affairs, and a total change in the policy that has so long been pursued by the Repub lican party, favoring individual and class in terests at the expense of the laboring and wealth-producing people of the country; and we re-announce our previous declarations for stable money, the gradual extinction of the Subllc debt, and the payment of pensions to lsabled soldiers, their widows and orphans. 2. We favor a tariff for revenue limited to the necessities of government economically administered, and so adjusted in its applica tion as to prevent unequal burdens, encour age productive Industries at home, afford Just compensation to labor, but not to create or foster monopolies. 3. The act of the Republican Congress re ducing the tariff on wool, while at the same time increasing it on woolen goods, already highly protected, was IniquitouB legislation, discriminating in favor of monopoly and against the agricultural interests of the country, and ought to be corrected ; and we heartily approve the action of the Democratic members of the Ohio delegation in Congress in voting against that increase. opposed by our party, as they ever have been. But sumptuary laws are not the only matter now before the people of Ohio, and he is not a wise counselor who would restrict the contest to them; and, gentlemen, don't letour enemies put us on the defensive, and hide from the public gaze the great principles of Democracy, which are the heart and life-blood of our grand.old party. Matthew Ryan, of Hamilton, then rrose and nominated Hon. George Hoadly. After referring at some length to the claims of Judge Hoadly, and his eminent fitness for the office, he said : Gentlemen of the Convention, I would not if I could, and I could not if I would, take away one laurel from the brow of Durbin Ward. I would not, if I could, seek in any possible manner to tarnish the bright escutch eon of Judge Geddes. But, gentlemen of the convention, if you nominate George Hoadly here to-day you will have the most brilliant campaign before you ever fought in the State of Ohio. He has the vim, the courage and de termination and the firo to lead us to sure and certain victory. But, my friends, I see it in your eager countenances, I hear it in your cheers, that, you are determined to launch Ohio in the Democratic column in 1884, and the logic of this convention is Hoadly and victory. The nomination was seconded by Hon. E. B. Finley, of Bucyrus. Rev. Charles Craven, of Toledo, pre sented the name of Judge Geddes, which was seconded by Gen. George W. Morgan, of Mount Vernon, in a telling speech. This closed the nominations for Governor, and balloting was proceeded with after some little delay. The vote was taken and the first ballot resulted in Hoadly, 200; Ward, 261 X; Geddes, 77. Much confusion followed the announce ment of the result of the first ballot, and much time was lost before order was re stored. The second ballot resulted as follows ; Hoadly, 332; Ward, 245; scattering, 60, and the Chair thereupon declared Judge Hoadly the nominee. The most terrific en thusiasm prevailed upon the announce ment. A Committee appointed for the purpose then led Judge Hoadly to the platform, and after being introduced to the Conven tion, the Judge spoke as follows : JUDGE HOADLY'S SPEECH. Gentlemen of the Convention, Fellow Democrats and Dear Friends: With a heart overflowing with emotion I thank you for that small part of this vote which consists in the expression of confidence in myself. I say that small part because no man knows better than I that I have been chosen over older and better soldiers of the Democracy, not because gersonal confidence and affection existed, but ecausc it was hoped and believed that through my nomination notice might be given more effectually to the world that the fences were down and the gates were open ; that the barriers were leveled and the ramparts had ceased to exist, and that the hospitable heart of the Ohio Democracy was open to receive recruits, no matter of what race or color, or previous condition of party servitude. To be nominated by such a convention over such more worthy antagonists, is an honor which ought to fill the ambition of a lifetime, and completely occupies mine. To be nomi nated by a convention presided over by my oldest friend, by whose side from forty to fifty years ago I fought as a boy in my college so ciety the battles of the Van Buren Democra cy, is a most gracious compliment and honor. You know that I hated slavery, and I left the Democratic party and remained beyond its portals until 1 believed that the full meas ure of his rights had been given to the colored man, and then, believing that he stood, as he ought to stand, upon an equal plane and plat form with every other man of every color and race, I came back to the old fold, and here I am applause prepared to do my duty, forgiven, I hope, for such delinquencies as I may have committed, ready with such meas ure of ability, zeal and activity as I may have to make up for what I want in experience and training, in order to lead you on, I hope, to victory. Applause. The party of national economy and per sonal liberty will win. Applause. The partv which believes that the foundation of wealth is frugality, and not taxation, will win. Ap plause. The purty that believes the founda tion and rational basis of temperance Is self control will win. The party that believes that the proper measure of legislation rela tive to the absorbing question of the hour is by the license system, which affords protec tion at the same time that it relieves against the evils of abuses of drink, will win. LG rear applause. Standing upon this platform, which I doubt not is written in vour resolutions. I accept ths trust.

The Convention adjourned at 1:15 o'clock a. m., on the 22d, having been in session continuously, without even the shortest in termission, for over fifteen hours. It goes on record as a most memorable event. Great delay was caused by the delegations changing, and making it next to impossible for the Secretaries to get the totals. The order of things in confusion started with the nomination for Governor,and continued to the end. Gen. Sherman's Remarkable Dream. Gen. Sherman denounces as false the story of his having once seated himself beneath the umbrageous shadow of a weeping willow during the war and combed cannon balls out of his hair while a fierce battle was raging. One night, however, he took refuge in an old farm-house near Milledgeville, Ga., and had fallen into a deep sleep when he was visited by an exciting dream. He thought the house in which he slept was surrounded by a baud of guerillas, that dug a hole beneath the wall next which he lay, filled the hole with pow der and touched it off. The explosion that followed was terrible, and the Gen eral thought he saw himself flying through the air in sections. With a howl he sprang out of bed, rubbed his eyes and hastily dressing himself went down the stairs. To his surprise his body.guard was nowhere to be seen. Tho inmates of the house were appa rently asleep, but the General felt that something was wrong, and slipping auietly out of the back door lie walked cautiously to the baru. Had no sooner got there th?n a lurid flame shot into the air. followed by a terrific explosion. Turning to see thejeause the General was astonished to find the side of the house he had just left blown completely away, and congratulated himself that he had not been blown away with it. Since that time the General says he has been a firm believer in dreams. Aew York Journal. Smuggling Through the Mails. 'Can you tell me some of the devices for smuggling goods through, the mails "Laces, kid gloves, silk stockings, silk handkerchiefs, and other light articles are inclosed in newspapers and pamph lets. They are inclosed so that it is hard to detect them. A pair of silver sardine tongs, going to California, was recently found hidden in a package of pamphlets In an English newspaperwerediscovered a lady's silk stockings, one black and one red. According to the revenue law. these might have been taken as samples and entered free. A trick was suspected, and the articles detained. The next steamers mail contained a newspaper ad dressed to the same person. In it were folded one red and one black stocking, to mstch the others. The lady to whom they were addressed was sent for and paid the duty. "Old Bibles and books are used to send watches and other jewelry, the leaves being cut and spaces hollowed out to hold the smuggled articles. One book, arranged in this way, disclosed, on being opened, three gold bracelets, two watch chains, two lockets, a set of sleeve but tons, five gold pins and two necklaces. This collection was on its way to a lady in Cincinnati. It was appraised at $334. One mail will bring the first part of a book, and the next mail the rest of it but this trick for getting in books free is rarely successful. " New York Sun. How Men of Different Nationalities A The other evening there happened to be sitting in a horse car in New York a number of men of noticeably different nationalities. An unmistakable Eng lishman calmly waited until the car came to a dead standstill before he com posedly left even the door. The Ger man suddenly rose with a bounce, bolted for the door, and, on the steps, called for the oar to stop. An Irishman strongly broke his way through a crowd and bumped against a fellow country man who was trying to get on the car. An American swung himself off was in rapid motion, had to run half a dozen steps to catch up to himself, and swore because he got off a block too soon. The latest, as tried on a Fulton ferry boat, is for three men to get in a quar rel, and push one of them overboard. The two jump in and rescue him. The fourth and possibly the fifth of the gang pick all the pockets possible of the crowd leaning over the rail. The man is rescued. A benevolent looking scamp now appears hat in hand, and suggests a contribution for the rescuers. All then move off for some other boat N. Y.

A difficult!" occurred at one of the voting precincts in Cincinnati on the 19th, during which ex-Alderman John Kelly shot and probably fatally wounded a man named James Toal. Witnesses of the affair claim that the assault was unprovoked. Kelly was arrested. At Cleveland, a few days ago, Eddie Ryder, aged fourteen, while bathing in the Cuyahoga River, began to struggle, and his brother Charles H., aged twenty-nine, jumped in to assist him, and both drowned. Citizens of Frazersburg, Muskingum County, gave chase to a suspicious looking man the other day, who jumped into a creek and was drowned. When the body was recovered a pardon was found in one pocket from the Ohio Penitentiary, for Frederick W. Grilloh, sentenced from Lick ing County, in 1861, for burglary and lar ceny, for a term of twenty years. The suit he wore was identified by a merchant of Frazersburg, as one that had been stolen from his store. A Cincinnati baker sold "cream puffs" to quite a number of customers the other day, and those who ate them were immedi ately taken sick, but all will recover. It is supposed arsenic was used instead of baking powder by mistake. Ira Stump was sentenced the other day in Fremont, Sandusky County, to the Peni tentiary for three years for horse-stealing, and the following day was married in the parlor of the Sheriff's residence to Sarah Thornton. Adam Oberlin, an extensive coal dealer of Canton, Stark County, has absconded, leaving debts to the amount of several thousand dollars. Attachments were made by the Sheriff for debts amounting to $4,000. Oberlin's whereabouts are unknown, but he is supposed to have gone to St. Louis. The Ohio Supreme Court has reversed the judgment of the Common Pleas Court of Hamilton County in the cases of Mc Hugh, the wife murderer, and Andrew J. Tullis. In the McHugh case Judge Mcll vaine dissented. In the Common Fleas Court at Sandusky, Erie County, on the 19th, Peter Lavell and John Davis were sentenced to the Penitentiary one year each, and Philip Kenned3", Joseph Santry and John Hen nesy were sent to the Reform School. These are the boys who broke into Mike O'Don nell's house, in that city, and stole $20.50 in currency. A little girl named Ella Parsons,eleven years old, while out in the woods playing the other day near Hubbard, Trumbull County, was attacked by Bill Newton, eighteen years old, and her person "out raged. In the struggle the clothes were nearly torn off the girl, and her body was badly bruised. Newton escaped. George McMillan, the wife murderer, who was to have been hanged at Canton on the 22d, was reprieved by the Governor a few moments before the hour for his execu tion. He will be hanged July 20. Governor Foster has pardoned George Driver, convicted at the January term of Court, 1883, in Sandusky County, of assault and battery, and sentenced to imprison ment in the county jail for six months. There was also a fine of $200, which was remitted. i Farmers down in the Hocking Valley, 1-'. anklin County, report the discovery of a worm at work about the first joint of the wheat stalks, and proving very disastrous so far as known. It is, from the descrip tion, similar to the worm reported in Illinois. The wife of Joseph Stein left her home in Fairmount, Hamilton County, a few days since while her husband was away at his work, leaving a note to the effect that she had gone to commit suicide. Search being made, her body was found in a pond a short distance from her home. Her mind had become affected by religious subjects. The story is reported from Petersburg Wyandot County, of George C.

The woman ob jected to the transaction, and has returned to her parents. lhe New York Journal inquires with animation whether or not a rea sonable human beino- should marrv schoolmistress. Of course he should if he can get her. But this higher educa tion of woman makes it hard for a lazy man to keep up with the procession oi modern ideas. A man can't help wish ing to keep a little ahead of the women but since the women all wish the same the ordinary masculine need not worry. We read, says the Scientific Ameri can, every now and then of cases in which burglars are supposed to have rendered their victims unconscious by holding clothes wet with chloroform to key-holes before entering an apartment. Of course the absurdity of such a fiction is apparent. Whether sleepers can pass from natural to chloroform sleep, if it is held near the face, is still a question. Antiquarians are jubilant over the discovery at Cairo of the tombs of the Abassides, which scientists have searched for so long in vain. The hall containing the tombs is crowned with a dome of stained glass, and is magnifl cently carved with detailed inscrip- tions. f fee $Ht0tt tWMXVLt RATES OF ADVERTISING. men. lw. iSw. Ilm. m. I1B.
