UNNERVED BY NAUSEA . — ~~ The Old Roman Prostrated at the Grand Rally in Gotham, He Has a Fainting- Spell in Madison Square Garden. After Being" Conveyed Back to His Hotel He Recovers Rapidly. He Is All Right Now and Will Be on Deck To- Day. Special to the Globe. New York. .Sept. 6.— Undoubtedly the grandest demonstration ever given in honor of a party or of a party's can didate was given to-night in honor of the Democracy and Allen (". Thurman at the Madison Square garden, in this city. Fully a hundred thousand men of all classes of society turned out to do the old Roman honor. The meeting was held in the renowned building known as Madison Square garden ♦This building occupies the entire block bounded by Madison avenue on the west, by Fourth avenue on the east, on the north by Twenty-seventh street and on the south by Twenty-sixth street. It is estimated to have a seating capacity of 16,000 persons. When crowded and packed In like sardines as it was to night it is safe to estimate there were fully 85,000 persons within its walls. In addition to this there were four overflow meetings. Two large stands on Twenty-seventh street and two on Twenty-sixth street, as early as 6 o'clock crowds commenced to collect in front of the garden, await ing admittance. They howled and howled for the doors to be opened, but it was 7 before the lights in the garden were lit The doors on Fourth avenue were thrown open to the general public. Ten minutes later the gar den was packed, so it was im possible for any present to gain admittance, and after 7:30 those ■who bad platorm and reserved seat tickets were refused admission. But the crowd still kept coming, the side street kept filling up and Twenty seventh and Twenty-sixth streets be came such a mass of human beings that any passage through them was impos sible. Fourth avenue and Madison ave nue were in a like condition. Madison Square, which has an acreage lof over ten acres was also packed to reple tion. Then the side streets commenced to fill up and long before the hour for the meeting to open, which was at 8 p. m., access to the hall was actually im possible. In the meantime the entire square was ONE BLAZE OF-FIREWORKS. and still the people kept coming, only to find there was no oDpoitunity to get within reach of the Old Roman's voice. They turned back, filling the horse cars till travel was practically impeded. The parade in 1884 was considered one of the greatest demonstrations ever held in this country, but the meeting to-night in point of enthusiasm and in numbers exceeded it by far. During this time a dense crowd of spectators gathered in and around the Fifth ave nue hotel, where the members of the executive committee of the national Democratic committee assembled at 7:30 to escort the distinguished visitor to the garden outside the Twenty third street entrance to the hotel four open carriages were drawn up, and the crowd, which had been aug menting for an hour, till it numbered several thousand, was only kept so as to leave a clear lane from the hotel entrance to the coaches by a most des perate effort of a detailed policeman. In Judge Tnurman's rooms a distin guished group gathered at an early hour. Gov. Hill was warmly greeted by Judge Thurman when he entered the latters appartments, accompanied by Col. W. G. Rice and his private sec retary. At 7:30 Gov. Greene, of New Jersey, Senators Blackburn andKenna, and Col. Calvin S. Brice, ex-Senator Barnum and Herman OHrichs,«of the national committee, arrived about the same time. A MIGHTY SHOUT WENT UP when Judge Thurman was seen to leave the Twenty-third street door and enter an open carriage. He leaned en the arm of Gov. Hill, beside whom he seated himself on the back seat of the landau. On the front seat were Chairman Brice and Barnum. In the next carriage was Gov. Green, of New Jersey, and with Mr. Olbricks in tbe succeeding carriages were Senators Blackburn C. Kenna, with Gen. Benja min Lefevre, of Ohio. The Seventy first regiment band of sixty pieces struck up a lively march, and heading a procession of about 3,000 Democrats, who marched thirty abreast the four carriages followed in the march to the garden. The scene at this time was rarely seen for enthusiasm even in the metropolis. The streets and squares were blocked with shouting people.a nd the magnificent folage of the park was made fairly enchanting in ap pearance through a vista of electric lights and burning green fire. The march up Broadway, Fifth avenue and through Twenty-sixth street to Madi son avenue, was a splendid ovation, such as any man might be proud to have tendered him. Twenty thousand lungs cheered as Judge Thur man's carriage slowly made its way through the SOLID BLOCKS OF PEOPLE. whose upturned faces were illumined by the flights of scores of beautiful rock ets and the endless burning of red and green Greek fire. The interior of the garden was brilliantly illuminated by electric lights, and the decorations were gorgeous" and appropriate to the occasion. Above the speaker's stand, which was on the north of the Twenty seventh street side of the building, were suspended large bust portraits of Wash ington, Cleveland and Thurman. Wash ington's portrait occupied the center position, with Cleveland on the right and 'hurnian on the left These portraits were festooned with the national flags. The three sides of the speakers' stand exposed to view were also draped with United States flags. On each of the columns surrounding the oval-shaped amphitheater was a United States shield, surrounded by small United States dags mounted on staffs. The general effect of the decorations was an exceedingly ef fective display of red, white and blue. There was a liberal display of bandanas in the audience. Many " persons dis played them at the end of walking canes, others had them tied around their hats, and one crippled individual had fixed his two crutches on end, and from the top of these waved the emblem of the old Roman. Besides these flecks of color, banners of local campaign clubs were to be seen in every part of the vast auditorium. OVERFLOW MEETINGS. While tlie main meeting was in progress there was a branch meeting addressed by eminent German Demo crats at the Fourth avenue and Twenty sixth street corner of the garden. Ex- JudgeOtterburg presided- and spoke, and was followed by Dr. Louis F. Schneider, Gen. Franz Sigel and various others, all speaking in German. AS IF BY MAGIC. Chairman Brice Brings the Huge Assemblage to Order — Roswell P. Flower's Remarks. At precisely 8 o'clock, Calvin S. Brice, chairman of the national cam paign committee, appeared in the speaker's stand, cane in hand, and rap ped for order. He at length made him self heard above the din, called the meeting to order and presented Hon. Roswell P. Flower, who said: "We are met to discuss the issues of the campaign; to ask for the Democratic party a continuance of power in the Federal union, that we may bring back the government to its original simplic ity; that frugality aud honesty may continue to be watch words of the peo ple; that public office may continue a public trust; that a high sense of honor may obtain in all its employers; that the honor and personal liberty of the citizens may be maintained both at home and abroad, and that the policy of tax ing the people only for the economical expenses of the government will be in dorsed and enforced.". Mr. Flower re ferred to Judge Thurman as "That ripe scholar, that ABLE AND UPRIGHT JUDGE; that leader of the senate, and that In corruptible statesman." Speaking of the surplus Mr. Flower said that there were three ways of reducing it. "It must be fraudulently taken from the treasury by jobs and steals; it must be used indofng things in the slates which the states must otherwise do themselves or. finally, it must be used to pay the public debt at enormous premiums. If one of these three ways," continued Chairman Flower, "be not adopted for disposing of these accumulations, they will increase and the money be locked in the vaults of the treasury; they must lie fallow or be loaned to the banks without interest, subject to call, obviously becoming a confin ing bond and shackle upon trade a pre vention of the free circulation of the medium of exchange, wherein is known to lie the safeguard of commercial enter prises." While Mr. Flower was still sneaking, the crowd near the Madison Square entrance began to cheer. The cheers swelled and ran to the body of the hall, down to the Fourth avenue wall, completely drowning the voice of the speakers as they announced the coming of Mr. Thurman. As he made his way to the platform the cheers were re doubled, bandanas were waved and the band struck up "HAIL TO THE CniEF." At the same time there reached the platform Gov. D. B. Hill, who took a seat beside Mayor Hewitt, Congressman McMillan, Patrick A. Collins and ex- Gov. Leon Abbett, of New Jersey. This greeting, in the form of a resolution, was read and adopted: "The Democrats of the city of New York In mass meeting assembled greet the Hon. Al lan G. Thurman, Democratic nominee for vice president, with hearty welcome and ap plause, and hail his presence In the metropo is of the Union as the harbinger of victory; and renewing their pledges of loyal devotion to the national Democratic ticket aud tbe national Democratic platform, they especially declare their approval of the recent message of me president as a timely vindication of the honor of the nation and manhood of the people." Mr. Flower, who had not attempted to continue his speech, at once intro duced Mr. Thurman, saying: "Fellow citizen's. 1 have the honor to introduce to you the old Roman, Allen G. Thur man." As Mr. Thurman stepped for ward to the speakers' stand and stood erect there, wiping the perspiration from his face with the famed bandana, the wildest excitement followed. Every one having a seat stood upon it. BANDANAS AND FLAGS WAVED and the crowd cheered and cheered again, drowning into a muffled sound the strains of the band. The cheering continued for fully five minutes, and then, in a voice so feeble that only those within a few feet of him could tell, ex cept by the motion of his lips, that he was speaking. Judge Thurman said: Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentle men: It has been, said by the Republican party since I was nomiuated for the vice presidency that Allen G. Thurman is an old, frail, de crepit and broken-down man. Ido not know what I should reply to this, al though I well know that 1 am in condi tion to-night to speak to an immense audience such as this is. However, I want to speak, and in spite of illness I am almost induced to make the attempt. I beg leave, however, to withdraw and thank you for your kind reception. A hush fell upon t.ie assemblage as all saw that the hero of the evening was trying to speak to them but was unable to do so. Col. Brice and Mr. Flower stepped forward, and each tak ing Mr. Thurman by the arm, assisted him back from the speaker's stand. HE WAS ALMOST FAINTING. and for a few minutes was too sick to be removed from the building. lien he had recovered sufficiently. Judge Thurman was taken in a carriage direct to the ladies' entrance of the Fifth Ave nue hotel, accompanied by Messrs. Brice and Barnum, and his son Allen W. Thurman.' The sudden illness of Judge Thurman caused a sensation in the audience. There was some confu sion, but as soon as it became evident that Judge Thurman could not proceed, and as he was seen leaving the building, there were loud cries for Gov. Hill. The governor was at once introduced by Chairman Flower. Before beginning his speech he said Judge Thurman's sudden illness was a weakness that had come upon him but an hour before. He took great pleas ure in announcing that the illness was not-serious, and that Judge Thurman would be able to proceed to-morrow with the work laid out for him in the campaign. Gov. Hill proceeded to make a vigorous support of the administra tion. In Gov. Hill's speech these were the chief utterances: "The Democratics of the state of New York welcome the distinguished citizen of Ohio, who has been made one of the ' standard-bearers of our party in this campaign, and who honors us upon this occasion by his presence, and we pledge to him and his invincible associate upon the ticket— Cleveland— the elect oral vote of the Empire state. We wel come him not as a king, because the Democracy acknowledges no kings in this country— whether crowned or uncrowned— but we greet him as a plain, honest, unassuming private citi zen and Democrat, full of years and honors, who -possesses the confidence and regard of a patriotic people. Upon his return to the West he may tell our gallant friends of that section that there are no divisions among the Democ racy ot this state this year. WE ARE UNITED, enthusiastic and confident. At the out set there were a few who were startled at the president's bold message on the tariff question and who wavered some what.but his recent still bolder message upon the fisheries question has brought all the wauderers back to the fold again. "Let me clearly illustrate the Demo cratic position. If the value of labor involved in the. production of a certain manufactured article is, for instance, f5 in Da foreign country, and to produce the same article here costs .$8 for labor, then a tariff of ?3 upon such articles equa lizes the difference. We favor just such a tariff. The tariff, to that extent, may be claimed to protect the labor which produces the article, but no other or additional tariff is required. Any greater sum which may be imposed can not be said to be for the benefit of labor, but is solely to increase the profits of the manufacturer at tne expense of his fellow citizens in his own country. •'We shall win the coming contest be cause we deserve to succeed. The Democratic, party was never more right than it is to-day. Clamor, misrepre sentation, abuse, false pretenses, and the impostures of pretended patriotism may succeed for a while and obstruct our progress, but the sober second thought of the people will surely pre vail, and our triumph will be as glor ious and gratifying to the Democracy as it will be disastrous to our adversar ies." The speech was frequently inter rupted by applause, and at its close there were many cheers . for "the next governor" of New York. Gov. Green, of New Jersey, was then introduced, and in opening his remarks lit; expressed regret at Mr. Thurman's temporary illness and paid a high tribute to him as "the intellectual giant who in the senate was the defender of constitutional liberty, and who more than any other man is looked upon by the Democracy as the . EXPONENT OF ITS PRINCIPLES." Gov. Green proceeded to eulogize the administration of President Cleveland, and to advocate his tariff policy. A let ter from Senator Voorhees was next * read, in whinh he expressed confidence ' for Indiana, aud says: "Tell Judge - Thurman I love him and pray God to THE- SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 7, 1888.— TEN PAGES. bless him." Ex-Gov. Blackburn, of Kentucky, was the next speaker, and his vigorous utterances were greatly applauded, He said: "For awhile the Republicans said we were cowards, but 1 beg my countrymen to-night to look Into the chambers of their consciences and say who are the cowards now. [Cheers.] We have laid the gauge of battle down. The Democratic party has passed a tax reduction bill which a Re publican house dares not touch. [Loud cheers.] We were involved in issues, not dangerous, but Issues that were con flicting. I have never had any sym pathy with the practices and policy of the English people. I do not thiuk that they act fairly in their diplomatic relations with other countries. The Republican senate rejected that treaty. They thought they could bully and win the sympathies of the American citizens by so doing, but they got a 'Roland " for Oliver.' [Cheers.] They decided to re ject that treaty on Tuesday, and on Thursday Grover Cleveland said: 'Very well, gentlemen, I tried iv a statesman like manner to adjust these differ ences with a friendly power. You have rejected the treaty and reverted to hostile methods. If war comes under your decree war it shall be.' He said, in the most polite and courteous way: 'Gentlemen, you have undertaken to play THE ROLL OF Tin? BULLY. _-.'-.- Give me the legislation, and I will carry out your decree.' " "They said, too.'"' continued Mr. Blackburn, "that the Confederate soldier was to be pen sioned. Is there one man in this au dience that has ever heard of a private pension bill going through the federal congress or signed by a Democratic president Jn the aid of a confederate soldier? i hey never ss'iCeu for ii; they have no right to it: they don't ask for it and they don't want it. Cleveland has done one other thing for which he should be canonized in the hearts of the American people. He managed to per suade James G. Blame [hisses] that he was previously mistaken when he thought he wanted to be president of the United States. [Great laughter.] Hon. Patrick A. Collins, of Boston, next spoke, and Hon. John McSweeny, of Ohio, followed, provoking much laugh ter. Local speakers closed the meeting. NOW HE'S AT IT. Gen. Hovey Inaugurates the Gu bernatorial Campaign in Indi ana. Indianapolis, Ind., Sept. The Republicans of Indianapolis held a great outdoor demonstration to-night, the immediate occasion being the re turn of Gen. Alvin P. novey, the Re publican candidate for governor, and the active inauguration of the guberna torial campaign. It La estimated that fully (10,000 persons witnessed the parade. The line of march was north on Meridian to Circle, east on Circle and Market to Pennsylvania avenue and then past the reviewing stand, north on Pennsylvania to Vermont and by countermarching back on Pennsylvania to Market. Gen. and Mrs. Harrison, accompanied by their daughter, Mrs. McKee, arrived at the New Denison shortly before 8 o'clock. Gen. Hovey had arrived at the hotel early in the day, and the two dis inguished candidates met on the balcony of the hotel, where they were shortly joined by ex-Gov. Porter. It was 8:45 when the big column, headed by Grand Marshall George H. Spahr and a brilliant staff, reached the re viewing stand, and as Gen. Harrison and Gov. Porter rose, with Gen. Hovey between them and Mrs. Harrison on the right, A GREAT SnOUT "WENT UP from the multitude, which was carried far down the street. The First regi ment cavalry, 400 strong, led the pro cession, which was subdivided into five divisions. Following the cavalry came 1,300 veterans, led by Lieut. Col. Bran ham. Among the veterans were 150 members of the Seventieth Indiana, Gen. Harrison's old regiment. Three hundred colored veterans followed, then came the veteran battery. The Porter Columbian club, carrying iron hammers. Following these came the Columbia club, 1,000 strong, com prising the prominent young Republi cans of Indianapolis. They wore white Derby hats, white vests and Mack suits. As they passed the stand with their Ro man caudles and red light, the scene was most brilliant, flanked as they were on either side by an endless column of moving torches. A feature of this divi sion was the Flambeau club of 100 mem members with blue Flambeau helmets and jackets. The railroad men, how ever, eclipsed all other organizations In the size and brilliancy of their display. Following this display came 1,280 rail road employes. Among the other note worthy displays was that of SOO mem bers of the Haughville club. Also the Traveling Men's club, between 700 and 800, carrying parasols and shoot ing Roman candles. In addition to these organizations there were thirty two ward clubs in line, numbering from 100 to 800 members each. There were fifty-three political organizations and clubs participating in the demon stration. The column was fifty min utes in passing the receiving stand, and it is variously estimated that from 8,000 to 10,000 men" were in line. • The Irish club in the procession num bered about 200. The transparency at their head read: "Ask Parnell what English free trade did for Ireland." The column marched down Market street to Tomlinson's hall, where it broke ranks. As many as could enter the hall, about 0,000, remained to par ticipate in the mass meeting. Gen. Hovey and ex-Gov. Porter ad dressed the audience briefly, dis cussing the issues of the campaign. Gen. liovey's appearance on the plat form was the signal for a demonstration that continued several minutes. Gen. and Mrs. Harrison at the conclusion of the parade returned home. Gen. Hovey leaves to-morrow for Shelbyville, where he speaks to-morrow night. IT IS NOT SERIOUS. The Old Roman Will Be on Deck Again To-Day. New York, Sept. 6.— Judge Thurman was taken from the Madison Square Garden directly to the Fifth Avenue hotel, accompanied by Messrs: Barnum and Brice and Allen W. Thurman. He was assisted to his room, where he was attended by Dr. Goldtwaite, the police physician, who administered, some medicine, and said there was nothing serious the matter, and that the judge would be all right in an hour. It seems that Judge Thurman had an attack of cholera morbus at 3 p. m. and bad been advised by the doctor not to exert him self by attending the meeting, but the veteran statesman was anxious not to disappoint his many friends, and insist ed on carrying out the programme laid down for him. Chairman Barnum soon returned to the meeting, but Mr. Brice, the physician and Mr. Thurman's sou remained in the room. THE DOCTOR'S BULLETIN. Special to the Globe. New York, Sept. 6.— The following has been issued: "Fifth Avenue Hotel, Madison Square, New York, Sept. 6, 1888. Judtre Thurman was perfectly well up to 4:30 p. m.. to-day, when he complained of some nausea and pain in the bowels, soon after followed by free vomiting and purging, having a mild attack oi cholera morbus. Against the advice of his son. Allen W. Thurman. he would attend the meeting at Madison square before he had recovered from the effects of the attack. This effort caused some return of nausea and prostration. At 10:30 p. m. he is sleeping quietly, with good pulse and no bad effects from the attack. H. Gqldthwaite, M. D." AMSDEN WILL LEAD.

J >■■■•» POULTRY AT THE FAIRS Should Re Judged by the Stand ard With Experts for Judges.!. The fair season is once more here, and we trust, says a writer in the Na tional Stockman, that all readers who breed thoroughbred poultry will exhibit. especially When the judging will bo done by the standard. In this way you will find out whether your birds are what they ought to be or not The judge will" tell you in all probability whether or not it is any use in you eoing to a first-class poultry show expecting to win. More than that, it is a great ad vantage to you to show at the fair, as the expenses are not nearly so great and you can show to the people the kind of STOCK YOU BREED without paying double first-class ex press bills for hundreds of miles to let the people know you are a poultry breeder. Of course, you will not under stand me to say that a country fair rec ord is worth as much to you as a record would be won in a huge poultry show, but a premium won at a fair carries with it a certain value, let it be what it will. It will do you no harm, and may do you much good. Go and win it. Win all you can. Keen up the interest Show to the word that the thoroughbred poul try is by far superior to the dunghill In every particular. Right here we wish to touch on an other point, and that is the judging. We know by experience there are many drawbacks in showing at the fairs, but we consider this the worst of all. Where the old committee business is still prac ticed, satisfaction among the exhibitors is an entire stramrer. We have seen committees pass judgment that didn't know ONE dreed FROM another, and the only way they could tell was to look on the entry tag. This is all wrong. But they are cheap judges and do a very cheap job, which, 1 am only sorry to say, suits a great many fair managers. But we sometimes think the managers are not wholly to blame, as the expert judge system is something new to them. They can't sec wherein It will pay them to employ a man to pass judgment on a few chickens when they have always been getting it done for nothing. We would advise exhibitors who have found this difficulty to go to some one of the managers and show them wherein it would be to their advantage to employ some one; that by so doing they will, in all probability, save much much more than the judge would cost them. We know of one fair lats season that saved over $35 over and above the expenses of the judge. In the old way almost every specimen wins a premium— no disquali fications, as where tho new standard is applied. But to get back to the sub ject go to the fair, take your stock along, and If you don't at first succeed, try again. x m THE IMPORTED BREEDS. \ Their Effect in Increasing the Value of the Hog and Cattle Products. Within the past six or eieht years the farmers of Le Sueur county and of that section of the state, says one of the journals of that county, have fully doubled the value of their hog product by improving breeds. Ten and twelve years ago hogs at eighteen months and two years old weighed no more than hogs now do at nine and fifteen months old. The saving in feed has* been one-, half, and the money for hogs has been' obtained in one-half the time. This is-: 1 a great gain, and it has been done by raising the best breed of hogs— hogs • of rapid growth, and hogs that would i take on flesh and fat, instead of the ) thin, slabsided hog of earlier days, i What has been done with hogs can be I done with cattle. Improved breeds of ■ cattle will enable farmers to market i two-year-old steers at as heavy -weight . as the scrub steer of four years old. It is important that this saving in feed of two years should be made, as well as the gain of one-half the time in turning the animal into money. As in the case " of hogs, good feeding must be done while the animal is young, and the - crowding of growth must be continued : until the animal is marketed. * ) «» - A Brave Warrior. ■ Life. j '"'Yes, boys," said old Bellows, proud , ly beating his breast, "I've been a sol . dier in my time, and, if Ido say it my l self, like the war-horse of Scripture, I i could ever scent the battle from afar." "I g'pose," ventured young Paper ; wate, "that on very many occasions that I saved your life?" THEIR NEW BOSS. Continued From First Page. tion had come to the floor three more changed to Merriam, and when the delegation voted it was twenty-eight for Gilman and ten for Merriam. When they came in Mr. Eustis said: "1 wish to withdraw the name of Hon. A li. McGill as a candidate before this conven. tion." ' -- v - ,* " - Mr. Barto— The gentleman Is out of order. Let us proceed with the regular order of business. . H . THE END. Success for the Millionaire by a Large Majority. r Long before the last vote was an nounced it was known that Merriam was nominated by a majority of over forty. When the ballot was declared the Merriam men went wild and acted like maniacs. Young Sever ance took a conniption fit, Steenerson executed a war dance; E. C. Long howled; ballots were thrown into the air, hats tossed and a great war • dance was had around the god of Mammon. Mr. Grimshaw, of Hennepin— On behalf of Hennepin couuty I move to make the nomi nation unanimous. ' Mr. Craft— l second that. Gen. Baker— do I. F. E. Searle— For the Fifth district friends of Gov. McGill, I second it. The motion was put but was not car ried. Ramsey, Otter Tail, Grant and the granger counties shouted "No," and voted solidly against it. Mr.Aberle, of Ramsey, stood on a chair and roared "No" attne top of his voice. Loren Fletcher dimmed on to a chair. "I want to say one word. I have done all that I could for the nomination of Gov. Mc- Gill. As a Kepublican I want to do now what I can to elect the nominee." ■'::. Messrs. Baker, Fletcher and Hodgson were appointed a committee to escort Mr. Merriam to the hall. During the hubbub the Scheffer dele gates sat silent and sullen. Mr. Schef fer himself, after chatting with some of his friends, left the hall. Lowenstein left also, sad and depressed. His idol had lost. POOR ORATORY. * William Proves a Very Awkward Speaker. The committee appointed to inform William Merriam of his nomination were absent one minute and seven ■ sec onds. Their reappearance, accom panied with the nominee ot the conven tion, was the signal for a further out burst of rapturous cheering. Gen. Ba ker introduced Mr. Merriam to the chairman, and the two cordially shook hands, the huge audience yelling to their heart's content. The Republican candidate, with the chairman on his right, Gen. Baker, Loren Fletcher and H. G. Hodgson, in the order named, on his left, then freed the delegates, and was introduced by the chairman In the following terms: Gentlemen of the convention: It affords me great pleasure to introduce to you at this time a gentleman whom the young men of this state will gladly support for the next governor of the state. [Loud cheers.] A gentleman, who. during the last session of the leglslasure, served with satisfaction to all the country districts of the state. I will say that, in the appointment of a committee, he" did a service that no rural district mem ber would have done, thus showing how deeply interested he was in the agricultural districts of Minnesota. We also recognize in him one of the first business men of the state. Gentlemen, I now have the pleasure of introducing your nominee for governor, William K. Merriam. [Loud and prolonged cheering.] Horn William R. Merriam, in stepping forward to speak, was received with a great demonstration of enthusiasm, the audience uprising, waving hats and handkerchiefs of varied hues and de scription, and generally yelling them selves hoarse. He said: Mr. chairman and gentlemen of the con vention: You have paid me a high honor; a: honor that man may well appreciate, but especially so young a man. I feel to receive an honor at the hands of the Republican party— a, party that has gone hand-in-hand with the progress of this state— is a compli ment as great as can be paid any man mi earth.

The Old Set. Go Through "Without Much Ado. Three cheers for Merriam were called for and heartily responded to, and then, i while the honorable gentleman was re ceiving the congratulations of his friends, the convention gradually sunk into an uproar which threatened to break up the gathering. Capt. Reed mounted a chair and painfully held up his hand to catch the attention of the chairman, while that gentleman was al most beside himself in his frantic efforts to restore order. Fully 5 minutes were thus spent, and then Capt. Reed got in his speech. He was to expedite, and so moved the renomination of A. E. Rice for lieutenant governor. Many dele gates called to make • the nomination uuaniraous. "i A. D. Gray, of Fillmore— Chairman, I object— „ ' ,__ . t Cries of "Shot up" and "Sit down.'' ' The Chairman— Order, order, please. : A.D. Gray at length got in his objec tion, which was that the roll should be called so as to allow any opposing can didate to be elected. SRS_B_4_HQ The chairman said that course should be adopted, and the roll of the counties was called. The voting went over whelmingly in favor of Rice, and in fluenced A. D. Gray to withdraw the name of O. G. Wall, of Fillmore, who had been put up in opposition. With this withdrawal the nomination of A. E. Rice was unanimously made. Hans Mattson was unanimously re nominated for state secretary. Col. Bobleter was also renominated for state treasurer, witout opposition. Moses E. Clapp was placed in nomi nation for attorney-general as hereto fore. T. H. Black, of Pipestone, nominated Ezra C. Dean, also of Pipestone, for this i position. - The roll was called, and after the first seventeen counties had solidly voted for Clapp, Mr. Black was per ftuaded to withdraw the name of hie nominee. This was accepted, and Mr. Clapp's nomination unanimously en dorsed. General J. H. Baker v moved, and the convention decided that the chairman should appoint at leisure a state central committee, composed of one member from each judicial district and three members at large. At 7 o'clock the convention concluded its business, and adjourned. . AT NIGHT The Victors Make Some Noise Over the Result. "Champagne!" "Beer!" were the ejaculations of the delegates as tbey smacked their lips last evening and joined the procession called to serenade the Republican candidate. Both were disappointed miserably. A few min utes before E. Stevenson, of Polk, rushed into the Merchants' hotel and invited delegates to take part in the procession, which, he stated, was going to Mr. Merriam's residence. Herein laid the disappointment, as, instead of going to the residence of the honorable gentleman, the procession, headed by a brass band, simply paraded several streets. It was a touching display •of enthusiasm, more particularly when the head of the pro cession turned off from the road leading to the Merriam residence, the volume of sound dropped to zero. After parad ing Third. Wabasha, Seventh, Minne sota and Fourth streets, a slight stop page took place at tike Minnesota Club jIOUSS, from whence Editor George Thompson delivered the following, char acteristic speech: "Gentlemen— gentleman whom you seek to honor has left here and . gone to the Merchants hotel to receive your ovations." The crowd cheered this give-away that the ovation was a cut aud dried affair, and the band struck up "Marching Through Georgia." By way of Cedar and Third streets, the processionists once more ar rived under the portals of the Mer chants hotel. Hon. W. R. Merriam was awaiting them. He said: Fellow citizens and friends— for I know many of you are friends, for you come right from my pwn city— desire to offer you my warmest thanks for this generous reception. I feel very highly elated, and I think any man may well feel complimented, especially, as I said in the convention, so young a man, for this tribute from the Republicans of the state. I propose to stand on the Republican platform. [Cheers.] American principles for American workingmen. a reduction of the surplus, arranging the rate of the tariff and high license, is ' the platform of the Republican party. I propose to stand upon It firmly with both feet. [Cheers. I thank the gentlemen from the country and city for their generous support. We know no difference; the Kepublican party is just as good in the city as in the country. We want to see it united, we want harmony, we want • every man to put on his armor and fight for tne Kepublican cause. I shall ex pect to see all of you with your coats off from now to the end of the election in No vember, and take care of the party— the party of liberty, the party which made this coun try great. [Loud cheers. At the close of Mr. Merriam's ad dress an ugly rush was made into the Merchants hotel, the corridor being crowded to excess. Music was supplied by the brass band, while Mr. Merriam passed around among delegates and friends, shaking hands with one, whis pering with another, and generally making himself as pleasant as possible. SHEFFER QUITS. He Will Not Run as an Indcpcnd ant Candidate. When* the convention had adjourned, one thought was uppermost in the minds of "Will Scheffer run inde pendent?" He had said that if a "rascal" was nominated he could not support him. Merriam had been nominated. Now, would Scheffer bolt? Mr. Scheffer answered the question himself last night by saying, as he stood iv the lobby of the Merchant's hotel: "This Is the last time I shall ever ap pear before the people of Minnesota for public office." But the officers of the Farmers' alli ance, all of whom were in the city, con firmed the remark by emphatic state ments that there would be no independ ent ticket in the field. A secret meet ing of the alliance was held in the Merchants hotel last evening. It was attended by members of the Farmers' alliance and was really in the interest of the nomination of Thomas Canning, by the Democrats, for congressman in the Fifth district. An expression of sentiment was to be had as to Canning, but the Comstock Republicans secured possession of the meeting and it broke up without doing anything. TRICKS OF FATE Played Upon Life's Chess Hoard. Fate plays strange tricks with men and puts them in position to suit her own mischevious will. Time drops his sands, the worlds roll on and fate makes men her puppets. Never in Min nesota was this better illustrated than in the Republican convention of yester day. Eighteen years ago Harace Austin, governor of Minnesota by only 1,900 majority, made A. R. McGill a clerk in the employ of the state. Yesterday eighteen years after— Horace Austin sat on the platform in Market hall, railroad commissioner by the grace of A. R. McGill, governor of Minnesota by 2,000 majority. Gen. "Jim " Baker, once the friend and political supporter of A. R. McGill— now his sworn opponent—sec onded the nomination of W. R. Mer riam, who, twenty years ago, was a schoolboy mid " Jim " Baker, a leading and influential politician of the state, and an aspirant lor the highest honors to be given by the people. So Barto, the sworn friend of Gilman in 1880, championed Merriam in 1888; Gilman, duped by Gibbs in 1.880, falls victim to his own duplicity in 1888; Fletcher snubbing Gilman two years ago, in turn is snu bed by Merriam in 1888. Such is fate. - SHORT NOfKS. Charley Lienau was present watch ing the death of harmony. * * * John J.

Fountain, Minn., Aug. Among the many beautiful vines for porch or veranda decoration, or for windows during the heat of our extremely warm summer, I have never found anything equal to the varieties of clematis. Very true, the Chinese evergreen honey suckle is a most : profuse and showy bloomer, but it is not an ever green with us, jet is worth having for its beauty. The climbing roses are always a favorite, but the thorns are too numerous for me to handle, more so because I should have to do all the handling of them. For this I prefer the clematis, and 1 find clematis Jackmanii from Japan lust as near right for all the purposes of an ornamental climber and show of flowers as any that can be found -a FOR THIS COLD CLIMATE. - Again, the plant may be cut down down within five or six inches of the ground in the fall and covered or left uncovered as one feels disposed. I cut the plant down late in the fall and cover with two or three inches of soil, spread ing out the short stalks in all directions, and leave them in that way forever after. In the spring it will throw up numberless shoots, which are carefully trained up in fan shape, or as near it as possible, so that it may have plenty of room to grow and blossom from mid summer until late in the fall. It blooms on the new wood, or rather the new growth from the roots or on the closely cut stalks of the previous year, and for this reason the old last summer's growth of wood is worthless and may be cut off in the fall without A SIGH OF regret, - ? but with the most complete satisfaction in so doing. Its flowers are large and bluish-purple. I have a variety of ■ clematis that I grew from seed sent me from Boulder Canon, Col., by a friend that passed a year at the springs in the cauon. This has small white clusters of flowers, and the long, slender branches can be cut off several feet in length, the axle of every leaf containing a spike of flowers, and the ends set in a large ice pitcher filled with water.can be set any where where a screen or piece of un usual decoration is wanted in a room, and the long branches made fast, will be a fine show for many days. it is A SPLENDID plant for that reason, and needs no care at any season of the year. It will soon cover the whole side of a house if anything is given it to hold itself in an upright po sition; its growth is large and "woody." These plants are best set away from the house a few feet, certainly the last named, and some framework made for its support, if one does not want a vine too close to the house. For an outhouse any variety of our native species is ex ceedingly fine for decorative purposes, but some of the foreign varieties have large flowers of blue, tinged with pur ple; pure white and red variety of Ja pan, and then we have a scarlet clema tis flower, small, somewhat heartshaped, a single flower in the axle of its small leaves. '■' Say what you will, a house has a naked appearance without any plant growing inside or outside. No matter how much ornamentation is lavished on the building outside, or the richest hangings on the inside, there is a want or lack of SOME PLANT OR BOUQUET in the windows. The only thing that can take the place of plants is the bo quet on the inside or the "hood" out side of the window. It the hood is used the projecting irans form a nice sup port for a cord, up which a .moonflower may climb without breaking any view whatever, or hiding any ornamental work on the house, and it is an orna ment on the plain house of any house holder.

That such minute insects as chinch bugs should damage crops to the utter extinction of farm profit over wide ranges of territory, seems strange. Yet it is true. In southern Illinois the pest has gradually so increased as to nave caused actual distress for the necessaries of life in some localities. It was supposed that to discontinue the growing of wheat would cause the chinch bug to disppear for want of proper food. Not so. They feed naturally on oats, and the pasture grasses in the spring and later on corn, and the after math of The meadows. There must be co-operation among farmers to secure the destruction of a pest that is v more widespread than is generally supposed. Wisconsin, Min nesota, lowa and some portions of Ne braska, Kansas and Missuri and Indi ana are the principal seats of devasta tion. The statistician of the depart ment of agriculture at Washington, Prof. Dodge, estimates the damage In Illinois at 815,000,000 and iv lowa at 825,000,000 this season. There have really been three seasons favorable to the growth of this pest. The entomologists of the several states are laboring earnestly to devise means by which the ravages of these bugs may be checked. Neighborhood organiza tions and societies should correspond with the entomologists of the several states, and thus receive many valuable hints. No one is working more earnestly in the study of this insect than Prof. Forbes, of the University of Illinois. From his well-known attainments In natural history and science, and his practicality, it is probable that ere long he will present to the people that which will materially assist iv eradicating this pest. x x.x- xx ". X The work to be done, however, and the means employed to destroy the chinch bug, must be done thorough, sys tematic and co-operative. It matters little what a single farmer may do, if his neighbor furnishes breeding and wintering places for the bug. It has been shown that ceasing to grow wheat will only drive the pest into pastures and to other grain. The proper thing to do, as one important means of erad ication, is to destroy them in their win tering places. Use such means as are already well known, and learn every new means possible. The Prairie Far mer is now" working diligently for just • such information, which, when per fected, will be made known. mm FARM NOTES. Hints and Facts That May Be of Value to Tillers of the Soil. In conversation with farmers of thirty or more years residence in Minnesota, the Janesville Argus gleans the inform ation that winter wheat, as a rule, does not do well in this state. Taken one year with another it has proven a fail ure. Last winter was exceptional, the snow coming early and remaining long to protect the crop. When the sugges tion that possibly winter wheat sowing may prove much more remunerative than the common spring, the almost in variable rule is a shake of the head and expressions to the effect that Minnesota is not adapted for winter wheat. One of the simplest of natures baro meters is a spiders' web. When there is a prospect of wind or rain the spider shortens the filiments by which its web is sustained, and leaves it in this state as long as it is variable. If it elongates Its threads it is a Burn ot fine, calm weather, the duration of which may be judged by the length to which the threads are let out if the spider re mains Inactive itis a sign of rain, but if he keeps at work during the rain, the downpour will not last long, and will be followed by fine weather. The result of William Campbell's winter wheat crop, on- his farm near Luvernc, is stated by a local paper. From fifteen and a half acres he ie ceived 340 bushels, or twenty bushels to the acre. The grain is of excellent quality and weighs sixty pounds to the 1 bushel "struck measure." The crop was sowed on com ground, and those : who have raised winter wheat in this section assure us that the crop in variably does well when sowed in that i way. One Minnesota farmer last spring i sowed two barrels of salt on a piece of ■ spring wheat on an average of half a , pound to the square acre. The wheat was so much better as compared with surrounding pieces that he has abund ant faith in the experiment and will sow much more salt next spring. Salt is a foe to the chinch bugs, gathers much moisture from the night air, and contains mineral properties that: are very beneficial to the soil. A. P. Halfhlll: "Hog raising pays the farmers better than any other branch they can engage In. It beats cattle raising, not to speak of the un certain wheat crop. I know of instances where farmers have tried the different branches of farming and never made money until they tried hog raising. If our Blue Earth county farmers would try it more than they do it would b» better for them." . The following Item Is going tho rounds, and the remedy suggested, being very simple, is worthy of a trial : Soak one or more newspapers, '■• a.l them Into a pulp, dip the pulp into a suitable solution of oxalic acid. Whilo wet force the pulp into any crevic - or hole made by mice or rats. Result— disgusted retreat, with sore snouts and feet on the part of the would-be in truders.* An Irishman on coming to America went to market to buy a chick; Ho was asked 25 cents. He said: •Mum an' I could boy the loikes o' that In the ould country for a sixpence." The seller said: "Why didn't you stay where you could buy so cheap?" .Mike scratching his head a moment, replied: "Cos I couldn't earn the sixpence to buy it wid." The French government commission appointed to inquire into the use of salt for domestic animals, recommend the following daily allowance : b'or a milch cow or ox, 2 ounces; for fattening stall fed ox, 2}4 to bounces; for fattening pig, 1 to IK ounces; for a lean sheep, 1/4 to 1% ounces; for a horse 1 ounce. At this season of the year, hen roosts and nests are infested with lice, which are suoh annoyance that no one should ask hens to lay eggs when thus lie,. Put boiling hot lime whitewash on nil of the sides, roofs, floors, nests, roosts and walks. And use carbolic acid freely. A correspondent of Home and Farm says: "Instead of dishorning my father would saw off about an inch of the end of each horn of the unruly cows, and they would be quiet and peaceable ever afterward. We have used the sain.) treatment with similar effect." We learn that a large number of farmers have determined to cut and shock their corn so soon as it will do, and thus save it from early frosts,whieh many are dreading. Much of the corn will do to cut and shock in two weeks. There has been 463,406,830 feet of drain tile laid in the farms of Illinois. This would make 68,939 miles, or nearly three times around the earth. McLean county has the most tile of any county, having 25,756,403 feet Man has as yet made but a small ad vance to the velocity of birds. The "Frigate bird," of the tropical seas, can fly 276 miles per hour. The canvass-, back duck is estimated to fly 200 mile% per hour. "Yes, I believe in the eight-hour system," said a Western farmer. "I work eight hours in the forenoon, and eight in the afternoon. In the harvest time I sometimes put in an hour or two extra." Some one writes as follows concern ing clover bloat which has caused the death of a number of cattle in different parts of the state of late: "It would not be much out of the way if a few words of advice are given to the farmers by the aid of which, if followed, the lives of the stock might be saved. When a cow partakes of too much clover she swells out and her sides feel as hard as a drum. This is occasioned by gas from the clover. The thing to be done is to get this gas out, and this is best effected by the following device: Take round piece of wood eight inches long and one and one-ha'f inches In diameter. Pud this in her mouth as you would a bridle bit. Then tie cords from the extremt*; ties of the stick to the horns to keep ifr 1 m proper position. The stick will keep' the cow from closing her mouth, and the gas will escape. This device has' been tried by many with great suc cess." .» : The appropriations by congress this year to aid agriculture are larger than usual. The main items are: For agri cultural experiment stations, 1685,000; bureau of animal industry, .$500,000; seed distribution, <|104,200; sorghum ex periments, $100,000; collecting and tab ulating statistics, 5131,300; salaries, $190,000, including an increase in the salary of the commissioner of agricult ure from 54.000 to j'5,000.
