New Youk, July 20. — Madison-square
Garden was packed to-night with people
intent on witnessing the ceremonies at
tendant upon the notification of Messrs.
Cleveland and Stevenson of tlieir nomina
tion. The vast amphitheater eras decorated
in a similar manner to the national conven
tion hall, and between 15*_OG0 and 20,100
people assembled. While awaiting the ar
rival of the distinguished guests the
audience passed the time in cheering for
Cleveland, .Stevenson and Governor Flower,
and singing campaign songs. At 8:20
o'clock the notification committee entered,
headed by Perry Belmont, who was arm in
arm with Stevenson. As the crowd recog
nized the Vice- Presidential candidate the
building 6hook with cheers, and a moment
later Govern* Flower received a flattering
welcome. Suddenly a yell went up. "Here
comes Cleveland!" and this was the signal
for a demonstration such as Cleveland has
not witnessed since 1888. When silence was
finally restored. Chairman Wilson of tbe
notification committee stepped to the front
of tbe stage and facing Mr. Cleveland de
livered the notification address.
I'bcilrnuii Wile o Speech.
Chairman Wilson of West Virginia in the
course of his remarks said:
Besides btlnjttsg tho notification from the

nut that you will lead in to a glorious triumph."
During Chairman Wilson's address Mr*.
Cleveland, who had been detained, strove to
enter the hall unobserved, but the audience
caught sight of her and fairly went wild
with enthusiasm. In the very midst of
Wilson's speech three cheers were given for
Mrs. Cleveland, and when a voice (rem the
gallery proposed three cheers for Hut the
enthusiasm reached such a height that the
chairman was obliged momentarily to ins
pend bis remarks. Cleveland's visage dark
ened with displeasure, but even his frown
was powerless to check the enthusiasm of
American chivalry, and it was fully a min
ute before the enthusiasm exhausted Itself.
At the conclusion of Chairman Wilson's
address the secretary read the formal noti
fication letter to Mr. Cleveland.
The Official Letter.
Th<» address says: "Nothing could evince
the affection and confidence in which Cleve
land is held by the Democratic party more
positively than the fact that he was three
times made its candidate for the Presi
dency. His devotion to the principles of
the party of Jefferson, his fidelity to every
trust reposed by the people, bis courageous,
conservative and exemplary administra
tion, and the prosperity of the country
thereunder, won for him the respect of every
citizen. In the maintenance of the doctrines
he so clearly expounded, and which formed
the basis of the declaration of principles
formulated by the Democratic convention
whicli again placed him In nomination, rests
the hope of the people for a constitutional

. nomination "is welcomed by every mau
who feels the burden of unjust taxation
and the distress of unwarranted legislative
interference with the rights of the citizen,
— and most heartily congratulates the country
upon the opportunity presented by his can
didacy for a return to the methods and
measures of that party which has and will
ever administer the Government for the
good of the country and in the interests of
the entire people.'*
Mr. Cleveland then faced Chairman Wil
son and said :

White Talks to Stevenson.
Immediately after Cleveland had resumed
bis scat Stephen 11. White of California
rose and, facing Adlai K. Stevenson of
Illinois, addressed him briefly upon his
nomination as the Vice-Presidential can
didate. He said in pari :

The Official Notification.
The secretary then read the following
letter of the committee notifying Stevenson
of his nomination. It says, in part:
We sic able to assuie you ihat this honor has
been conferred because the Democratic party

When Stevenson arose he was greeted
with prolonged applause and when silence
was restored he spoke substantially as fol
lows :

The Santa IV Secures i Share of Overland
Immigrant Traffic.
Chicago. July Some time ago the
Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad
informed the roads in the Western Traffic
Association that on June 15 it would reduce
second-class passenger rates from the Mis
souri liver to California points to Sl4 7".
The reason why the Santa F* proposed to
make that rate was that although the regu
lar rate was 533, the road* were paying a
commission to ticket and steamship agents
of S2O 30. leaving the road a net rate of only
$14 To. It is claimed the commission paid
to outside agents should bo given directly
to the public. The rate, however, has not
been reduced, and a statement is published
here to the effect that the Santa Fe i* merely
playing a game of bluff to secure coi.ces
sions, and that the New York Steamship
agents have offered to send a fair share of
immigrant traffic over that line.
Huston. July 20.— A gentleman thor
oughly familiar with Atchison affairs says
the outlook for the Atchison was never
brighter than at present, The company is
handling an enormous amount of last year's
grain, besides an unusually large quantity
of general merchandise. The equipment is
crowded to the utmost, and the indications
are that this will be continued a long time.
The June statement of earnings is likely to
make the best showing for the past fiscal
year. The gross income will record a band
some ga:n, besides which there will be con
siderable saving iv expenses. The July
figures will, unless all signs fall, make a
still better showing.

A Large Number of Men Idle Through the
Housesmiths' Strike.
New FOBS, July 20.— as a result oi the
strike of public cartmen, drivers, brick
handlers and boatmen against the material
bosses, BOW men are forced Into idleness.
Unless a settlement is reached fully as many
more men, principally artisans, will bo com
pelled, for lack of material, to quit work.
The strike grows out of the bousessaltbs'
troubles with the Cornells and Jackson
Architectural Iron Works Company.
The public cartmen's and driver-.' unions,
in sympathy with the housosmiths, refused
to deliver material to the boycotted jobs,
and walking delegates here promised assist
ance to the strikers. : ■-y ■<_.■■■
On lhe otlier hand, the Iron League, com
posed of nil the principal iron manufacturers
of New fork. Brooklyn and Jersey City,
will aid the material bosses. President
laekcrs of the walking delegates says that
unless the league repudiates the position
taken by the Cornells and Jackson Com
pany every building in New York upon
which any member has a contract will be
tied up.
Wheeling, W. Va., July 20.— At Ope
kiska, near Fun mount, the Acme Coal

men are intimidating the non-union men
and trouble is threatening. A Sheriff's
posse has been summoned to the scene.
A Process That Is Baid to Be Eminently
Amiuquehqukv M. Mex., July 20.— There
are large bodies of ores in Sandia and they
would be valuable were it not for their re
fractory character. Miners aud mine-own
ers in this vicinity are generally of the
Opinion that the problem of reduction has
been solved at last by the process which
treats such ores in some way by electricity.
The process is similar to thai for refining
sugar. It is the invention of a New York
mau, and so many successful tests have
beeu made with it that mining men are con
fident it will do the work, So confident are
they that they have put up $30,000 for the
purpose of having a small working plant
put In at this place. The ore is not melted,
but Is pulverized, roasted and then put Into
an electric bath for several hours, when the
metal becomes free and is saved by water
and quicksilver.

Special to TnE Mobnino Call.
Wallace. Idaho, July 20.— Work has
bean resumed at .ill tho mines in the Ccetir
d'Alenes. Wages have been iixfd at S3 50
per day for skilled miners and S3 per day
for shovclcrs, with the right to board and
lodge where they please. The presence of
the troops is a guarantee that the men can
work for whom they please without becom
ing members of any organization.
The actions of the Homestead miners,
whose deeds were Commented upon here In
violent anarchistic language by such men as
Seven, Dallas, Poynton and O'Brien, stirred
up the evil passions of the ignorant miners,
whom they ruled with a rod of iron, and
the great trouble here was the result.
On the 13th of July the strike assumed
its most dangerous phase, and the mine
owners were Virtually held prisoners.
Three hundred scabs were in the hands of
m— .i capabe of shooting them to de ith at
the command of their leaders. Colonel
Carliu's delay at Cataldo until theso scabs
could be scut out of the country, it is gen
erally believed, saved many lives as well as
much valuable property. Every threat
mado by tie strikers on that day would
assuredly have heen carried out had the
troops advanced. Tho miners considered
their fi^ht won when the scabs left, never
dreaming that they would return within
two days, and before they could recover
from the surprise occasioned by this quick
return to the old conditions Deputy Mar
shals weie pointing them out to soldier*?,
who arrested '.hem.
Since the IS inst. there has been no
danger whatever, ann the sensational re
ports sent out from here were in most cases
gross exaggerations.
Kreeu, I) lias and Poynton, who were
trusted leaders under O'Brien, have escaped
to Montana, but requisition papers will ho
forwarded to Governor Toole and their ar
rest wiii probably follow. All the other
prominent leaders are in custody. The in
dications now point to a general exodus to
Montana of such union miners as have not
yet been arrested.
Although the miners' union in the C(pur
d'Alenrs is completely broken up and the
mine-owners tree of its halter. it will re
quire the presence of the Federal troops for
fix months or more to insure iho workmen
here immunity from attack. One hundred

Mr. Gladstone's Friends Becoming De
cidedly Uneasy.
The Struggle in Midlothian Told Upon Him, and
Bis Anxiety Has Increased Since the Result
of the Elections Was Announced.
Special to The Morning Cali*
New York. July 20.— Here is what a
member of Parliament, closely associated
with Gladstone, said to-day to the World's
correspondent: "Gladstone's health is caus
ing uneasiness to his friends. His exertion
In the Midlothian campaign has told severely
on him, and the result of the elections leav
ing him with so small a majority opens a
vista to trouble, which has worried
him intensely. He bas nothing organi
cally wrong, but he has began to
show the effects of his extreme
age In a feebleness entirely new to him.
When staying at Dalmauy with Lord
Rosenberg during the election he repeat
edly fell sound asleep during dinner on
two accasions after the first course and was
removed to his bedroom in his elixir asleep
and put to bed. This tendency to drowsi
ness has been noticed lately in the House
of Commons, but it has latterly increased
rapidly. The nervous tension he has under
gone has also aggravated ereatly the ner
vousness natural to a man of his advanced
age. It was to brace his nerves that he wis
hurried to the Highlands alter the election.
What, between the bad wen ther and the
lack of recuperative power, the benefit to be
derived from a change has been so partial
that his stay there baa beeu prolonged a
week. His absence is giving scope for
intrigues in the party which are certain to
be 11 fresh source of difficulty later on. The
fear of Gladstone's family la that the labor
and annoyance inseparable from carrying
on the Government with a small and uiixed
majority must tell with disastrous effect
upon him b.f' re many months. The Tories
know this »nd their plan is to worry him,
have late sittings and oppose legislation in
every possible way."

ent disposition is to make no terms at all
with Timothy Harrington or the two Ked

point is that in Ireland they feel that the

tion and that some way is now certain to be
found to close the ranks. Interesting con
firmation of this ta found in to-night's news
that the Independent, the organ of the
Parnellites in Dublin, will cease Its daily
