Fted Grant's Friends at Work
Other Political News.
Saratoga, n. Y.. SoDt 2i The citr is
full of Republican poliUcians. Among
them are Qen. Joseph E Carr, Joseph W.
Drexel, and Chairman James D. Warren,
all can d Mates for the gubernatorial nomina
tion. A delegation headed by James Tan.
ner, of Brooklyn, is here in the interest of
Col. Fred Grant for secretary of state.
delegates to tbe Knpiinheau state conven
tion are arriving in large numbers, and the
quiet of Saturday and Sunday has been
changed to one of bustle and activity and
political "booming." Tbe good material
in the field from which to select a candidate
for gubernatorial honors is commented upon
on every hand. There have been twenty-
live or twenty -seven names mentioned fir
the first plaoe on tbe ticket, but. of course,
the greater number of these will not receive
and do not expect anything more than a
complimentary vote in the convention.
Ibe standing of the various candidates
at tlie present time, based upon a careful
canvass made Monday afternoon, appears
to run in ordar about as follows: A. K Cor
nell, Corueiius N. Blia-i, Ira D. Daven
port, J. W. Drexel, Joseph B. Carr,
vi F. Morton. James D. Warren,
William H. He ward and James Wadsworth.
with Messrs Andrew D. White. Noah
Iavis, Dr. Swinburne, B. F. Tracy, Senator
Htinry R. Low and nearly as many others
commanding more or less strength. There
i no denying the fact that Uen. Carr, who
me days ago stood foremost in tbe list of
names for the first place, is rapidly losing
strength. His friends claim, however, that
before the gas is lighted again his boom will
be the strongest in Saratoga.
New York county holds the kev, and the
city delegates are hard at work endeavoring
to harmonize upon a good man. Mr. (Sew
ard's name is frequently mentioned for
second place, and it is believed that be is
very strong. Davenport has many friends
for tbe lieutenant governorship.
A quiet movement n on foot to make Col.
Fred Grant the nominee for secretary of
state. Tbe uncertainty of the gubernator
ial candidates, hower, leaves the minor
places on tbe ticket still very much clouded.
They have not been sufficiently discuised to
warrant any statement regarding them.
Tbe best politics at tbe present time are
those of ex-governor Cornell His friends
have been playing a shrewd game, and it
has worked admirably. Had tbe nomina
tion been made Monday be would
surely have been chosen. Even those who
are bitterly opposed to his selection admit
In conversation with a very Intimate
friend of Senat r Miller, a correspondent
ascertained that in his opinion the probabili
ties were that if New York city oould con
centrate their forces upon any one man it
was Bliss, and that in the event of failure on
the nart of citr delegates to act as a nnit
James D. Warren, of Buffalo, would de
velop a surprising amount of strength. The
oity delegates appear to take but little stock
In Warren, and rather lean toward Seward
as their choice outside of tbe city. "But,"
tbey xay very emphatically, "the candidate
for governor must and will come from New
New York, Sept 2a In an interview
with Hon. Levi P. Morton Monday after
noon at the Fifth Avenue hotel, that gentle
man stated that he had no idea how the
state ticket nominations were going, but
that if he was nominated of course he would
accept Gen. Carr, be said, seems to bave
tbe greatest slrengtb at present, he bung
tbe only one who has worked actively to
pet tbe nomination.
Musle In the Iakota Convention.
Sioux FAIXS, D. T., Sept. HA -There
was quite an excited discussion in the con
stitutional convention Saturday over the
resolution introduced Friday by Campbell,
of Yankton, declaring that people have the
inherent right to alter, reform, or abolish
their forms of government It was
looked upon as a sort of seces
sion move by many of tbe members
of the convention, and the chairman, Judge
Edgerton, left hi? seat ami made an earnest
argument against it The matter was
finally d isposed of y reference to a commit
tee of five, t be appointed by the chair.
The particular part of tbe clause objected to
was the word "aboil -h."
Later Tbe threatened trouble in the
constitutional convention was adjusted,
Monday, by the adoptiou of a substitute for
Campbell's bdl of right. The substitute
declares that all political power is inherent
in the people: all free government founded
on tneir authority ; and that tbey have the
right to alter the forms of government; de
clares tbe stats of Dakota an inseparable
part of tbe union, and tbe r ederal constitu
tion tbe supreme law of the land.
Senator Barnum's Tlews.
Chicaoo, Sept 22. Hon. William H
Barnum was at the Grand Pacific Sunday.
To a reporter be expressed his opinion that
the civil service law was nonsense; that
bone-it administration was tbe only issue at
present, but that the silver question was
going to take up a large part of oongres
sioual time. He believed that Cleveland
would in bis message take the same position
that he had in his famous silver letter. He
thought there ought to be at least 30,0(10
bayonets not shoulder-straps in tbe
army. Garrisons of from 500 to 3,000
meu should ba permanently stationed at
cities like New York, Brooklyn, Chicago.
Cleveland, Omaha, etc: Then there would
be no likelihood of a repetion of tbe terrible
riots which have disgraced tbe annals of
these cities in the past.
Logan Can Not Go to Ohio.
Columbus, Ohio, Sept ii There is some
di-appoin tment among Republicans that
John A. jLmgan can not come to Ohio for
this campaign. He has written a letter to
Cbauucey Andrews, of Yonngstown, that
he is laid op with rheumatism and can not
get into the state in time.
Many Visitors to Grant's Tomb.
New York, bept 82. There were more
visitors than usual on a buuday at the
tomb of Gen. Grant, not less than 40,000
people visiting tbe park. Mrs. Grant, ao
ompanied by U. S. Grant, Jr., and a little
girl, drove up to the tomb in the morning
and remained a few minutes. Later in tbe
day Secretary Endicott called and looked
over Camp Grant with evident interest It
na been decided that the guard of regular
troops will be maintained at the tomb until
January, if not longer.
Activity af Knights er Labor.
Chattanooga, Tenn., Bept 82. The
Knights of Labor are organising throughout
the state on a very extensive scale. Fully a
doseu lodges bave been formed in the past
ten days, two being tormea nere, ah ine

The Cleveland Istbor Troubles.
Cleveland, Ohio, Sept 23. -Nearly S00
of the rolling-mill men, who struck twelve
weeks ago against a reduction, went to
work Saturday without opposition, and It
was thought the backbone of the strike was
broken, but tbe rolliag-mills did not start
up Monday morning as expected. It tran
spires that the rolling-mill company bad
made preparations to start the fires in the
hope of misleading the strikers into the be
lief that tbey had enough to start the mills.
The plan has proven a complete failure and
the starting of the mills has for the;preaent
been abandoned A large force of police
men is on the grounds to prevent trouble.
Paymaster Hmlth's Case.
Washington City, Sept 22. The court
martial of Paymaster General Smith re
convened Monday by order of Secretary
W hitney, and held a long session with closed
doors. tSoon after the assembly of the
court, notice was served on Secretary
Whitney and the president of the court that
Messrs. Chandler and Hunton, couu'el for
Gen. Smith, will apply on Wednesday for a
writ of prohibition, to prevent further pro
ceedings with closed doors, and nullify
whatever action was taken Monday. The
court immediately adjourned for two weeks
with Secretary Whitney's assent
Washington City, Sept. 22. The presi
dent has appointed James T. Giffer, assist
ant appraiser of merchandise, in tbe New
The president also appointed tbe following
postmasters: John T. Cottrell at Fort
Scott Kan. ; F. S. Reefy, at Elyria, Ohio;
Oliver J. Dale, at Monticello. Ind.
The po-ition of chief postofrice inspector,
salary $:,0OO per annum, has been tendered
to William A. West, of Mississippi Mr,
West has not yot signified his acceptance,
but probably will soon.
Texas Fever iu Illinois.
Duyi'oiN, I1U, Sept 22. There are a
number of cases of Txas fever among the
cattle in this locality. Great excitement
prevails among the cattlemen, as some of
the most valuable imported herds in south
ern Illinois are located in this vicinity.
Prompt measures have been taken to purify
tbe stock-yards, but it is feared that the
dread disea-e has already obtained such a
hold on the cattle that it can not be eradi
cated w ithout great loss to tbe cattlemen.
Funeral of Bishop Lay.
Baltimore, Sept 22. The funeral of the
late Bishop Lay, of tbe Protestant Episco
pal church, took place from Christ church
at Kaston, Md., Monday afternoon. Inter
rnent will be made at Spring Hill cemetry.
The remains of the deceased bishop left thn
city over tbe Pennsylvania railway at 6:40
Monday morning, accompanied by the
members of his family and a number of
Do Mores Acquitted.
Bismarck. D. T., Sept 22. After the de
livery of a fair and impartial charge by
Judge Francis the case of the Marquis de
Moras was given to the jury, and in five
minutes it brought in a verdict of not
guilty. Not a word was spoken in the jury
room, and but one vote was taken. . The
jury was camp. wed of leading business men
of this city, and the verdict is regarded as
The Latest Child Murderer.
OwiNosviLUt, Ky., Sept 22. Sunday
night at Sprout's school bouse, five miles
east of this place, a little boy named Grant
Purvis became enraged at a little son of
Mr. Alder Sprodt and walked up behind
him, dealing the little fellow a blow on the
head which knocked him senseless. There
is little hope of the boy's recovery.
Slilrt Factory Burned.
Tbov. N. Y., Sept 23. Herman Aucka-
aiand Cos. 's shirt factory was burned Sun
day night Tin loss is estimated at f 75,000
cvvema ttr insurance.
A Coal Company Falls.
Bhaidwood, 111., Sept. 22. The sen
sation of the day here is the failure of the
Eureka company, of which A. B. Meeker
is president. Last Saturday was tbe
monthly payday, when about $4.(HK) was
to bave beeu paid out for work in Au
gust. Payment was not made, however,
nd tbe employes soon became alarmed.
Shortlv after midnight Monday morning
several attachments were executed, and
tbe merchandise in tbe Eureka "truck
store" was levied upon. Then parties from
Morris attached ibe mines and material
In them, such as engines, pit cars, and
machinery generally. The said mine is
located just across the Will county honn
dsry line. Dozens of other attachments
were issued, and a large quantity of goods
wascarled away in custody of constables.
Sheriff Ueitz, of this county, arrived at
3 o'clock with seven or eight more attach
tnents, aggregating $2,50(1, aside from
those previously mentioned. Soon there
after a placard appeared at the front door
of tbe store, reading as follows:
I have taken possession of all the prop'
erly of tbe Eureka Coal company as re
ceiver of the United States court.
C. P. WllKELKR.
It appears that C. P. Wheeler is secre
tary of the Eureka Coal company, and
has his office on Dearborn street, Chica
go. It is impossible to get at an estimate
of tbe company's liabilities, though in
this city it is known that tbey will aggre
gate all of 7,000. A large iuvoice of dry
goods was bought by tbe company last
week in Chicago. Kumois are afloat that
the company will pay all the indebted
ness, but few believe such statements.
