Kaw Tork Deaaoerats Rave No IH. tti.- Will Kan for noeernor. SARATOGA, N. Y Sept. 25.-Ther. 1. r. a man versed in the ways of conventions of lK itieal parties that ever saw a situa- " nat wmch confront, th. n.. cr,tic convention, which met today. The predicament is explained iu a very few words by Lieutenant Governor Sheehan. j aiu: mere Is not a man or politician here that knows who the nominee of the party will be. It is anybody's or any fao- " - ""uid, una mo convention will be a Democratic oue in every sense of the W.0r',V 11 18 Prtl,(y probable and not at all out of the line of impossibility that there will be a repetition of the conven tion of 176, when the galleries nominated Seymour for governor. lheieception that will ha -r,11 t Senator Hill by the convention will un doubtedly take on a remarkable phase snd will be a scene long to be remem bered by every person persent, and it is penecwy prouaiile that he will be nom turned by acclsmation frnm t tin rr u 1 1 m v t it c That he will decline, however, is almost certain and then there will have tn ha a new nomination. Senator Hill has arrivml and opened hendqunrters at tha Grand Ln ion hotel. From the time this arrival until the late hours of last night he war iteMerfed by crowds of delegates. lo the Associated Press renorter he suH: "1 received word that I was to be temporary cbairmitn of the convention today. I know nothing about who is the most prominent candidate and I have no opinion to express as to who will be the nominee of the convention." Later he was shown the dispatch concenuinc the declination or Judge Guynor, and he said laconically: "it seems that the Kroner tniug is to reiuse to be a candidate." Tammany's braves have struck the vil lage. Several of their delegates wore seen in regard to the placing of Tammany's strength, and every man favors William C. v hituey. hen asked as to the Flower Doom tney seemed to bo unanimous enough, but expressed littla hope of his retracting bis withdrawul. Ex-Sieaker buiseer said: ' uuam (J. Whitney is the man. senator 11:11 excepted he is tho man to carry the state this full, lie will make his personal wishes subservient to his party's demands." It is an uouueed by the Tammany neotile that Whitney will be home today and will be in Saratoga on tomorrow. This is in Itself significant, for Whitney was not ex pected to 03 a visitor at the convention. Further, those who arrauge for the meet ings of the conventions have decided to wait o whole day before they take up the nomination of candidates, aud it is urged that this is in favor of the W bitney boom because the delay is evidentlv to let Whitney's decision be known before final action is taken. The flower boom is not without some Blgnilicaoca. It is urged that in an inter view given out by him iu Albany he did not seem averse to withdrawing bis de clination if tue party desired him to. Ui8 private secretary, Colonel llliams, is here, and iusiHinse to inquiries of the A fett .ovresDo.udaut. eaid: VI am poaitivetuat ine 'governor nas iio unbu tton of withdrawing bis decision iu the matter of a nomination. It is doubtful it anything could induce him to change bis touid on that point." The Erie county people who were cred ited with having a boom for Daniel M Lockwood, and the Monroe county people. who were credited with a similar move for Frederick Cook for governor, are rather apathetic The Lockwood boom looks as if It might die, and indeed it is said that Lockwood mny make a speech nominating Spencer Clinton, of Buffalo, for judge of the court of appeals. This being so, would argue that Ijocuwood has decided to with draw. A Disappearing Farmer Found. SrOKASE, Wash., Sept. 25. Charles F. Gloystein, a farmer of Mica, a village in Spokane county, who disappeared iu the early morning of July 31 last, has been fouud by the sheriff of bpokaue at Grants, Ore., at work with a thresher outfit.

He was an active partisau aud had been hanged iu efliy some i weeks previous to his a isappear ance, and refuses to return to Alica, Deflnltioa of Railway Negligence. SriilNOFIELD, Ills., Sept. 25.

Stuhois, Ky., Sept, 25. While there has as yet been no formal outbreak over the proposed attempt to collect the rail road tax, serious trouble is looked for. when Collector Thomas B. Blnckwell will begin his job. Another shipment of guns Was received here ami the organization of the citizens may be said to be perfect. A reporter visited the grounds north of town, which, it is claimed, Blackwell's agent rented nnder false pretenses. It is an ideal place for a rendezvous, being a thick woodland northeast from the Mor- ganfield road. There is a small house and a log stable on the premises, surrounded by a picket fence. The Ohio Valley railroad may refuse to bring his outfit here on the ground that they fear damage to their property if they should attempt to unload the goods. The collector's armed men will ride through from Union town overland. Say They Are Not Itepadlatora. The citizans authorized the correspond ent to give the following statement as voicing the sentiments of the local organ ization: "It is due this people to have it unmis takably understood that at no time during tne lust twenty-five years have we repudi ated an obligation. e sav we do not owe one farthing of this, yet we offur a supposed innocent purchaser all the money ne Had invested in the bonds fraudulently obtained from us with 8 per cent, interest. ibis otter nas been mode three different times, the lust about ten weeks ago. We have a funding board specially appointed to effect a settlement, and whatever action this committee mny tal; the people will indorse. Ten weeks ago this commit tee offered 30 cents on the dollar of all this principal! and interest compounded, snd while the committee was waiting a reply to their proposition the very parties to whom it was submitted sent us word that they were coming with 100 armed men with Winchester rifles to force from us the whole amount, making no reply to our overtures." Arum ud ltullet Proof Coats. Blackwell refused todivulire his plan. but the correspondent learned from inside sources that 1U0 Winchesters and a num ber of tents have been ordered from Boston, together with patent bullet proof coats. The provisions and supplies will be shipped over the Ohio alley uuder guard to Sturgia. The people here say the tram will not be allowed to unload any supplies. Business at Sturcis and at L'uiontown is at a standstill. Biackweil is now drilling at Unioutowu a body of men whom be lias gathered in Indiana aud elsewhere, very few in the county agreeing to assist him. A brief history of the matter is that about twenty or thirty years ago several railroad promoters, aided by a Mr. Gor don, a lawyer of Madlsonvillc, got into their possensiou bonds voted by the two preciuuts for a railroad thut was at the time not begun and which has never been completed, a roadbed of about eight miles being all that the people have to show for a debt that now amounts to nearly (250,000. lreatan Bring Suit. Preston, a relative of the schemers. claimed to have bought the bonds as an innocent purchaser, nnd brought suit. It has been fought in the courts for years, but lately the couuty court ordered the collection in order to keep the matter out of the tederal courts. On account of the tax the county has been without a sheriff for years, as it was bis duty to collect the tnx. The Felands, who are attorneys for the bondholders, had Blackwell ap pointed collector, and he is getting some thing like W.OuO for the job. The people offered Preston what lie paid for the bonds, with interest and a bonus, in order to get rid of the burden, but he declined, aud wau ts dollar for dollar. MANACLED SKELETONS FOUNO.
