WORKING WEAL Thurman Strikes a Shoulder Blow for the Homes of the Masses. The People Want Cheap Cloth ing-, Cheap Tools and Cheap Lumber, And They Cannot Get Them Under Heavy and Unnec essary Taxation. A Short Letter Plainly Pre senting- the Great Issue of the Hour. Columbus, 0., 0ct. 14— Judge Thur mau's letter of acceptance was given to the press this evening. The first draft of the letter was in the judge's hand writing, and the typewriter copies showed only a few changes in punctua tion from the original. The letter is as follows: Hon. Patrick A. Collins and Others, Committee— Gentlemen: In obedience to custom, I send you this formal ac ceptance of my nomination tor the office of vice president of the United States, made by the national convention of the Democratic party at St. Louis. When you did me the honor to call upon me at Columbus and officially notify me of my nomination, I expressed to you my sense of obligation to the convention, and stated that, although I had not ■aught the nomination, I did not feel at liberty, under the circumstances, to decline it. 1 thoueht then, as I still think, that whatever 1 could properly do to promote the re-election of Presi dent Cleveland, I ought to do. His ad ministration has been marked by such integrity, good sense, manly courage and exalted patriotism, that a just ap preciation of these high qualities seems to call for his re-election. 1 am also Ptrongly impressed with the belief that ids re-election would powerfully tend io strengthen that keeling OF FRATERNITY among the American people that is so essential to their welfare, peace and happiness, and to the perpetuity of the Union and of our free institutions. I approve the platform of the St. Louis convention, and I cannot too strongly express my dissent from the heretical teachings of the monopolists that the welfare of a people can be promoted by a system of exorbitant taxation far in excess of the wants of the government. The idea that a people can be enriched by heavy and unnecessary taxation, that a man's condition can be improved by taxing him on all he wears, on all his wife and children wear, on all his tools and implements of industry, is an obvious absurdity. To fill the vaults of the treasury with an idle surplus, for which the government has no legitimate use, and to thereby deprive the people of currency needed for their business and daily wants, and to create a power ful and dangerous stimulus to extrava gance and corruption in the expendi tures of the government, seems to me to be a policy at variance with every sound principle of government and of political economy. The necessity of reducing taxation to prevent such an accumulation of SURPLUS REVENUE and the consequent depletion of the cir culating medium, is so apparent that no party dares to deny it; but when we come to consider the modes by which the reduction may be made, we find a wide antagonism between our party and the monopolistic leaders of our political opponents. We seek to reduce taxes upon the necessaries of life; our op ponents seek to increase them. We say, ■rive to the masses of the people cheap and good clothing, cheap blankets, cheap tools and cheap lumber. The Republic ans, by their platform and their leaders In the senate, by their proposed bill, say, increase the taxes on clothing and blankets and thereby increase their cost, maintain a high duty on the tools of the farmer and mechanic and upon the lumber which they need for the con struction of their modest dwellings, shops and barns, and thereby prevent their obtaining these necessaries at rea sonable prices. Can any sensible man doubt is *"0 where he should stand in this controversy? Can any well-in formed man be deceived by the false pretense that a system so unreasonable and unjust is for the benefit of laboring men. Much is said about competition of American laborers with the PAUPER LABOR OF EUROPE. but does not every man who looks around him see and know that an im mense majority of the laborers in America are not engaged in what are called the protected industries? and as to those who are not employed in such industries, is it not undeniable that the duties proposed by the Democratic measure called the Mills bill far exceed the difference between American and European wages, and that, therefore, if it were admitted that our workingmen can be protected by tariffs against cheaper labor, they would be fully pro tected and more-than protectee:, by that bill? Does not every well-informed man know that the increase in price of home manufactures produced by a high tariff does not go into the pockets of la boring men, but only tends to swell the profits of others? It seems to me that if the policy of the Democratic party is plainly presented, all must understand that we seek to make the cost of living less, and at the same time increase the share of the laboring man in the bene fits ot national prosperity and growth. 1 am very respectfully, your obedient servant, Allen G. Thurman. OFF FOR INDIANA. Judge Thurman Starts for the Land ofthe Hoosiers. Cincinnati, 0., Oct. 14. — Judge Thurman left Columbus this afternoon In the private car of Chairman Brice, of the national Democratic committee, and attached to the 2:15 express on the Co lumbus & Cincinnati Midland road. Accompaning him were his son, Allen W. Thurman, Dr. Fred W. Schwartz, Hon. C. W. -taker, of this city; Charles 0. Davis and rc.'.r representatives of the pre is. TJ-»m »«r«_ju* la -IV* lv tin •.•hi ty. A'though it was generally understood that the judge would leave for his brief Indiana tour to-day the time of depart ure was kept secret in order to avoid any possible demonstration. This ob ject was accomplished so far as Colum bus was concerned, but the fact that he was en route was evidently wired along the line, for at nearly every sta tion there* were groups or crowds of people waiting to give the old Roman a cheer as the train went. At Washing ton court house, where a brief stop was made, about 500 people had assembled, and the cheers were interspersed with loud calls for a speech. At first the judge was unwilling to show himself, but the clamor was so persistent that filially he appeared upon the rear plat form and said: "Gentlemen: If I were a preacher I would preach you a sermon. As I am not one, how ever, I cannot talk to you on Sunday." At Madisonville there was another large crowd, but it had to content itself with a glimpse of the judge through the car windows. Cincinnati was reached at 6 o'clock. About 500 people had gathered in the depot and 1,000 more outside. The judge was met by a committee representing the various clubs, under whose escort he was taken to the Grand hotel, the crowd following cheering heartily. To-morrow morning, escorted by a number of Democratic clubs of this city and Columbus, Judge Thur man leaves for Shelbyville, Ind., to participate in the Democratic barbecue and rally at that place. DEMOCRATS ARE ELATED. The Outlook in New York of the Host Encouraging Nature. FORTY THOUSAND PLURALITY Is a Conservative Estimate of the Ex cess of the Democratic Over the Republican Vote. New York, Oct. 14.— The New York morning papers of to-morrow will speak in high praise af the simplicity, direct ness and force of Judge Thurman's let ter of acceptance. It opens auspi ciously the final struggle of the cam paign here. There is among the Dem ocrats universal confidence, amounting to elation as over a fight already won. Republicans concede that yesterday's great meeting in front of the sub-treas ury exceeded in number any business men's demonstration ever held at that place and admit that, with an undispu ted attendance of 5,000, it completely cast in the shade the Blame parade on the arrival of one Republican leader from Europe and the polo grounds meeting. Secretary Fairchild's speech has made a very strong impression.both through its masterly presentation of the financial issues and to the keenness of its retorts upon Blame and Miller, and the crushing exposure of the ignorance of United States laws on the part of both these Republican headlights. Ar rangements for a union of all Demo crats on congressional nominees in dis puted districts were completed to-night. No division will be permitted on any thing connected with national or state issues. Among the latest contributions received to the people's campaign fund is one from THIRTY-SEVEN LADIES of Mercer, Pa., "friends of Mrs. Cleve land." This example will no doubt be followed by many other ladies who sympathize with the Democratic cause. A careful estimate of the vote of Brook lyn, based on a comparison of the regis tration of this year compared with that oflSB4, shows a plurality of 23,000 for Cleveland and Thurman. The latest Republican figure for this city, the av erage of three estimates by election districts, give a Cleveland plurality of 61,000. Corresponding results in Queens, Suffold and Richmond will insure a Democratic plurality in the state of 30,000, even if the interior does no better for the Democrats than in 1884, but the disappearance of the But ler movement, the increased strength of the Prohibitionists, the return to the Democracy of many who four years ago cast ballots for Blame in interior indus trial constituencies, and other points of difference between the present national contest and that between Blame and Cleveland, render 10,000 a very low es timate of the Democratic gain over 1884 in interior counties. This very con servative calculation shows a plurality of 40,000 votes for the Cleveland and Thurman electors. The Republican headquarters feel very blue over the discouraging reports just received from Western states, especially Indiana. c*< THE DOCTORS RESIGNED Because of an Anonymous Article in an Evening Paper. Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 14.— day has been very pleasant, and the re duced number of cases and deaths causes a cheerful feeling to prevail. There is much gossip over the resigna tion last night of all the visiting physi cians, owing to an anonymous article in an evening paper declaring that they were drawing $500 a month each, while home doctors got no extra pay and suffered loss of income through the absence of their more well-to-do clients. The article does not voice the sentiment of the public, who appreciate the servi ces of the visiting doctors, and it is hoped that the resignations will be withdrawn. To-night they have all agreed to at tend the patients as usual, the board of health meanwhile to investigate and re port upon the causes which led to the publication of the article referred to. The whole thing is likely to end in smoke in a few days. New cases, 18; deaths, 2; total cases to date, 3,144; total deaths, 313. — •» Dwarfs Married.

CHAOS INMNGRESS. The Situation of the Nation's Solons Really a Very Del icate One. How an Absent-Minded Man Could Put the Senate in a Snarl. An Impression Abroad That an Adjournment Will En sue This Week. Short Sessions and Long Re cesses to Be the Prevail ing Order. Washington, Oct. 14.— 8y the last census of the senate, taken Friday afternoon, there were fifteen members present for duty, while enough more to raise the aggregate available for emer gencies to within half a dozen of a quo rum were known to be within easy call. Since then several have left the city. Contradictory reports are* current re garding the prospective adjournment (all traceable, oddly enough, to highly authorative sources), to the effect that it has been determined to adjourn with out delay on Wednesday, on Thursday, on Saturday of .this week, and on Mon day of next week. In support of the two dates last mentioned, it is argued that members of the ways and means committee of the house have secured the services of experts in political economy, and are preparing a digest of the senate tariff bill, which they wish to make public through the official chan nels of congress before the session closes. Against all of these, the state ment of Senator Allison, who, having the tariff bill in charge, is more likely than any other member of either house to know the situation thoroughly, can be quoted to the effect that no arrange ment or understanding of any kind has yet been reached on the subject of ad journment. The opinion is, however, almost unanimous that CONGRESS WILL ADJOURN, take a long recess, or in some other way bring the session to an end within the present week, and in this opinion Sen ator Allison is understood to concur. The situation is one of considerable delicacy. Should any senator, through force of habit or absence of mind, de mand a division or otherwise develop the absence of a quorum, parliamentary chaos would ensue. Under the senate rules it would be the imperative duty of the chair to send the sergeant-at-arms and his deputies in search of absentees, and until an unpaired quorum should be obtained no other business— not even the resolution to adjourn sine die or take a longer recess than three legis lative days— be in order. The fact that any one member of the senate may prevent the adjournment has led to the suggestion that in deference to the constitution a chairman pro tempore and one member of each party be left in attendance to meet twice or three times a week and adjourn with the un derstanding that no legislation shall be attempted. There are members of both parties in the senate who still think that THE TARIFF BILL should be brought to a vote, but in view of the difficulties, they are greatly in the minority, and the situation is such that an adjournment resolution coming from any source ely to be unanimously adopted. Senator Morgan will call up for action early in the week the resolution giving to the heads of ex ecutive departments authority— in their discretion— to make exhibits at Paris of articles belonging to their departments, and it is possible that some other de bated measures, which are not likely to encounter any opposition, may be taken up in the morning hours; but the principal part of the time henceforth to the end of the session will be devoted to speeches on the tariff. Not more than twenty-five or thirty members of the house of representatives are expected to be in their seats to-morrow. Objection will be made to the transaction of any important business in the absence of nine-tenths of the members, and the leg islative possibilities for the coming week are almost nothing. Short ses sions and long recesses will be the pre vailing order. THE REDS DIVIDED. Little Prospect of an Agreement Among the Sioux. Washington, Oct. 14.— The Sioux Indians who have come to Washington to see Secretary Vilas in regard to the proposed sale of a part of their reserva tion have been holding pow-wows all day, endeavoring to agree upon a pro gramme to be followed at to-morrow's conference. From all that can be learned, it seems improbable that any agreement will be reached as a result of the Indians' visit here. It is said they are almost hopelessly split up among themselves, and that there is little prospect of their being able to unite on any proposition. They have, it is said, divided into two chief parties. One party, comprising Indians from the Pine Ridge and Rose Bud agencies, led by American Horse and Swift Bear, are opposed to anything being done at this time. They say that the commission bill has only been read to them once; that they do not understand its pro visions, and that they do not wish to sell their lands, at this time. The other party, in which Sitting Bull and John Grass are leaders, are willing to sell their lands, but want a much better price than 50 cents an acre. Nearly all the Indians are suffering from the effects of their long and unusual journey, and many of them have bad colds. NOT FOR WILLYUM HENRY. The Negotiations for the Wash ington Post Off. Washington, Oct. 14.— The negotia tions between Stillsou Hutchins and William Henry Smith, for the transfer to the latter of a half interest in the Washington Post, came to an end a few days ago, Mr. Smith declining to make the purchase. Mr. Hutchins has re sumed control and management of the paper, with Richard Sylvester as man aging editor. The Post will coutiuue independent, but not neutral in poli tics. Following this will come the con solidation of the Washington Evening Critic with the Post, and the Critic will hereafter be issued as the Washington Evening Post. '_ - ■ :- BREAD GOES UP, And a Serious Row Will Follow; the Raise. i New York, Oct. 14.— The United* Boss Bakers' association to-day raised the price of loaves of bread formerly, selliug for 5 cents to 6 cents, and 8-cent loaves to 9 cents. A . proportionate in crease in the price of rolls was made. The executive board of Journeymen Bakers' union No. 1 subsequently met. and decided that the action of the bosses was the first step toward form ing a bread trust, and urged all working people not to patronize shops where an increase in prices was made. It was determined to call a mass meeting to discuss the bread question.

THE GREAT SUGAR TRUST Formed Under the Existing Tariff Made by the Republicans in 1883. Evansville, Ind., Oct. 14.— following to Mr. Edwin Taylor, chair man of the Democratic county com mittee, of this county, explains itself: New Albany, Ind., Oct. 13.— You called my attention to-day, as 1 was leaving Evansville, to the statement of Mr. Blame in his speech at Goshen, Ind., in which he says: "The president of the sugar trust (Mr. Havemyer), a well known active Democrat, of New York, appeared before the ways and means committee, and, according to the state ment made in open senate by Mr. Alli son, of lowa, obtained such an arrange ment of duty as was equivalent to $0,000,000 in the pockets of the trust. If, therefore, the price of sugar has been unduly advanced to the consumer, the responsible parties, according to the president's doctrine, are the president himself and the ways and means com mittee, who concocted the Mills bill in the interest of that trust." The state ment of Mr. Blame is devoid of the truth. Mr. Havemyer never appeared before the ways and means committee at all. He never obtained any arrange ment by which §0,000,000 was put into the pockets of the sugar trust. The sugar trust was formed under the ex isting tariff made by the Republican party in 18S3, and when the bill, re cently passed by the house, was laid before the ways and means committee for its action, every one of the five Re publican members of that committee voted to strike out the reduction we "proposed, and continue the tariff rates under which the trust was formed. Yours truly, R. Q. Mills. ''■ THE RUTHLESS REAPER. Death of the President of a Lum ber Firm. Menomonei, Wis., Oct. John H.

The Good People of the Windy City Will Ride to Busi ness This Morning. President Yerkes Agrees Hereafter to Pay His Men 1 by the Hour, To Give Them a Six Per Cent Advance and Ten Hours As a Day. Mr. Lyman J. Gage Mutually Agreed Upon as the Arbitrator. Chicago, Oct. 14.— street car strike is ended. After a conference be tween President Yerkes and the strik ers' committee, which lasted from 10 o'clock in the morning until nearly 2 o'clock this afternoon, a compromise was agreed upon, and to-morrow morn ing all the cars on the West and North sides will be running with their old crews. After the fruitless negotiations of yesterday afternoon and evening it was thought that the all-night meeting of the men would decide to resume the strike early this morning without wait ing to hear from President Yerkes at 10 o'clock, at which hour he had agreed to give his final answer. The men were disposed to regard the frequent post ponements as devices on the part of the company to gain time, and when the meeting opened at midnight there was a practical unanimity of sentiment that no cars should be run to-day until the answer of the company should be re ceived. All the speeches tended in that di rection, and had it not been for the efforts of the members of the citizens' committee who were present, and who were sustained by a letter from Mayor Roche requesting the men to remain at work until President Yerkes had given his final decision, it is probable that to-day's negotiations would have terminated fruitlessly, if indeed they had been held at all. These conservative counsels prevailed, how ever, and at 10 o'clock, when the execu tive committee called upon Mr. Yerkes, all the West side cars were running as usual. As President Yerkes had made the first proposition yesterday, the men opened the negotiations to-day. They offered on behalf of the North side men to resume work at an advance of 8 per cent, the "set car" system to be abol ished and the pay to be by the hour, in stead of by the trip, as heretofore. Mr. Yerkes, on be***fr"©f the company, "offered an advance of 4 per cent.' Then the men offered to "splitthe difference" and accept 6 per cent. Mr. Yerkes promptly offered to give 5 percent. Then there was a long and animated discussion, which terminated in Mr. Yerkes accepting the 6 per cent ad vance. As there will be considerable difficulty in ascertaining just what tlie 6 per cent rate should be, owing to the change from the system of paying by the trip to that of payment by the hour, Lyman J. Gage, president of the First National bank, was mutually agreed upon as an arbitrator to fix the rate per hour to be paid on the different kinds of cars, ln addition to the advance in wages, the men are to be guaranteed TEN nouns' work per day. On the side of the company, Mr. Yerkes reserved to retain all the new men he had hired for the North side lines. They will, -however, be placed on one of the minor routes, by themselves, so that there will be no friction between them and the return ing strikers, all of whom will get their old places, with the exception of a few who made themselves conspicuous by Stoning the cars and creating disturb ances. At the termination of the con ference the trikers' committee issued an order to the men to report for duty as usual to-morrow morning, and Presi dent Yerkes ordered the North side cars, which were being run by imported men under police protection, to be re turned to the barns. The West side men, having returned to work, and their grievances being settled by the ar rangement of the North side difficulty, will, of course, continue as usual. To morrow morning, therefore, will see the full resumption of street car traffic throughout the great residence portions of the city. This desirable result, to gether with the fact that the police acted with such moderation throughout the strike as to avoid any fatalities, is due, iv a great measure, to the efforts of Mayor Roche, who has been untiring in his endeavors to bring about the sat isfactory settlement attained to-day. some dissatisfaction still. i The headquarters of the strikers were crowded to-night with men awaiting the report of the day's conference. When it did come it was not received with any decree of enthusiasm, owing to the fact that Mr. Yerkes' determination to re tain all the imported men means the loss of many of the strikers. The dis content was increased when at 11 o'clock it was announced that 242 of the new men were to be put to work in the morning. The strikers will report for work ill accordance with the agree ment, but it is feared that unless some means are taken to employ all the old men there will be further trouble. racing jehus. The rivalry between the drivers of the wagons that have taken the place of the cars during the strike culminated to-night in a serious accident. Two vans loaded with passengers were racing on Clark street. One of the drivers be came so excited as to overlook a pile of building material, His vehicle smashed into the heap and then overturned. .Twelve passengers were pinned fast under the wagon, which" the frightened Horse's attached attempted to kick to pieces. The shrieking, groaning people were helped out as soon as possible, and all were found to be badly bruised and scratched.

Rome, Oct. 14.— The pope was pres ent at the time of Count Herbert Bis marck's visit to Cardinal Rampolla yes terday and gave a short audience to Count Herbert. The latter declared that the existing treaties between Ger many and Italy did not admit the pos sibility of any territorial claim in favor of the papacy. Emperor William has invited Premier Crispel, Gen. Viale, minister of war, and Prof. Boselli, minister of public instruction, to a luncheon at the Ger man embassy. The emperor , to-day talked at length with a deputation of German residents who presented an ad dress of welcome. In the afternoon the emperor and suite visited the Pantheon and , laid a wreath upon the tomb of Victor Emauuel and signed the visitors' . book. "A* crowd gathered outside the Pantheon and gave the emperor an en thusiastic greeting when he came out, his homage to the late king makin^a deep impression upon the people and adding to his popularity.

Count Herbert Bismarck thereupon said that a Prussian prince must not be kept waiting in an ante room, but must be immediately announced. The emperor came out of the audience room a few minutes after Prince Henry was an nounced and introduced his brother to the pope. It is stated that the pope, owing to the brevity of his interview with the emperor and his own discoursiveness, had not time to say all he wished, and was, there fore, dissatisfied. It is rumored that Emperor William instructed his brother to come before time for the purpose of shortening his talk with the pope. The emperor evinced little interest in the Museum of the Basilica of St. Peter's, always repeating the words, "l shall return." - London, Oct. 15.— The Rome cor respondent of the Chronicle says: Em peror William told the pope that it was not improbable that the senate would modify the rj^nal code. KILLED AXD EATEN. Tke Fate of Three Germans Who Deserted the Moewe. Zanzibar, Oct. 14.— Negotiations are under way to settle the outbreak of the natives. The Germans are returning to Bagomoyo. It is not true that the rising originated in religious fanaticism. The trouble was caused by the German officials treating the natives and the sultan's officials with contempt. At a public meeting of British Indian trad ers it was resolved to petition the queen, through the Prince of Wales and Lord Salisbury, to request the German gov ernment to take necessary measures to restore confidence in Zanzibar, and thus avoid commercial ruin to the trad ing community, which numbers 10,000 persons.

The Principal Causes Which Brought the Yield to Such a Low ''"*- Point Chicago. Oct. 14.— The following crop summary will appear in this week's edition of the Farmers' Review: "The shortage in the wheat crop of 1888 is due not only to decreased acreage, but also to damage of various causes, ln Ohio from winter killing and rust; in Indiana from winter killing, frost, chinch bugs, and slightly fiom rust; in Illinois principally from winter killing, frost and chinch bugs, although some counties report loss from drouth and rust; in lowa from chinch bugs (two counties reporting a total loss from this cause) also considerable damage from rust; in Michigan a considerable portion of win ter wheat was killed, but notwithstand ing this the crop will be about equal to that of last year; the Wisconsin crop suffered considerably from chinch hugs, and some from rust and' hot weather; "in Missouri chinch hugs and wet weather at the time and after harvesting caused considerable. loss; in Minnesota the chief loss was from chinch hugs, two counties • reporting a total loss, and in some counties much injury was caused' by hot winds in July; in Dakota the greatest loss was caused by these hot winds, although early frosts cut off a portion of the crop; in Kansas little damage was sustained from any cause, and the crop is therefore very much larger than that of last year. Ne braska, Kentucky and lowa also show an increase. The following estimates of the crop in the principal wheat growing states are based on the acreage planted in those states as estimated by the department of agriculture, and the average yield as reported by the Farm ers' Review correspondents: The total for the following; eleven states, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illi nois, lowa, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Dakota is 282,840,252 bushels. Allowing for the decrease in the area planted in the Southern and Eastern states report ed by the department of agriculture, and for an increase in acreage in tho Western states and territories, and as suming that the yield per acre will be equal to that of last year, we estimate the crop in the said states and territo ries to be 13fi,155,020 bushels, which, added to the total in the above eleven states and Dakota, would make a total 418,998,372 bushels, against 456,339, --000 bushels, the total wheat crop of 1887 as reported by the department of agriculture.
