The Santa Fe Invites all Stockhold ers to Join Hands and Pre vent Foreclosure. Associated Press. - Old Orchard, Me., August 25. Ex Speaker Thomas B. Reed opened the Republican campaign in this state here this afternoon with a speech which call ed forth the heartiest cheers from Ihe people. Reed's main effort was to prove that the "Democratic party had shown itself Incapable of ruling the country satisfactorily, not only to the majority of the people, but even to a a large minority which helped to com pose It." Reed Bpoke In part as follows: "In saying the Democratic party has shown itself incapable of running the country in a manner satisfactory not only to the majority, but to a large and respectable minority which helps to compose it, I am not Indulging in the language of partisanship, but in the language of truth, known and 'visible to all who hear me today. The north ern Democratlo party Is In many re Bpects like the Republican, composed of men of business seneo and business ability. The difficulty with the Demo cratic party today as It has been in the past, Is the fact that Its majority re sides in tho south. The southern men arc of Intellectual power, men of Intel ligence and learning. The difficulty Is that the kind of learning which' arises from a thorough knowledge of business as It is carried on in the north, is en tirely lacking. While the southern man may. have every opportunity to read In the books of the prosperlly which has come to the north, he has no conception of It, as those who have lived In it. He is devoted to the the ories of bygone days. His mind Is fixed urpn principles which were essential tojjthe prosperity of his part of. the country in the days before the war. t "Whatever may have been done by tho people at present In possession of the government, everyone will admit it has been done slowly,out of place, and in such a way as to be of the least possible service to the country. Tha repeal of the silver purchasing clause tinder the Sherman act might possibly have been of some service to the coun try had it been promptly and at once.; The gentlemen in charge of the tariff bi'll 'in the house understood how to lg-; noi"e the varied Interests of the coun try nd to mould the tariff bill not In the in'terests of the nation, not in ac-: cordan oe with the wishes of the people, but in i accordance with certain theories which t.olght fit their dream of ulti mate free1, trade. Such a bill, framed in such a manner was doomed from the moment of Its Inception. It was not adapted to this country, it was not adapted to Its interests, It was not adapted in any way to the situation In v.hlch tho country found Itself. Com mencing upon a vague theory that it vr&i necessary to coddle certain manu facturers at the expense of others, it violated the' first principles of the Dem ocratlo "platform." ' . TO FUSE WITH POPULISTS. Omaha, August 25. The Nebraska Democrats held a conference In Omaha today to discuss fusion with the Pop ulists. The question uppermost was whether the party can consistently en dorse the nomination of Judge Holcomb. There Is a strong sentiment among the Jacksonion wing of the local Democ racy favoring such a course, but the Idea is being strongly opposed by many prominent Democrats who urge the nomination of a. straight Democratic ticket. No decision was reached, and another meeting will be held. IMPORTANT BILL PASSED. WMhington, August 25, While the senate was considering business behind closed doors, yesterday, there slipped through an Important bill appropriat ing' $9,000 to carry into effect the in come, tax proylslon of the tariff bill which' has been held under objection for a few days. This ends all controversy as to the preliminary arrangement for collecting the Income tax. STATE TICKET COMPLETED.

Flvo Hundred Japanese Will Lose Their ,'i Heads in China. Shanghai, August 23. Seven Japan ese spls in costume were arrested to day and will be expelled from China. Nobody will be surprised If they are treated much more severely. According to adlvces from Formosa, 500 Japanese will be decapitated after being arrested as splo. In order to raise money to push 'operations tho government has increased the transit duties on yarns. A letter from Chemulpo, Corea, received at Foo, Che yesterday announcing the defeat of the Japanese force, and the killing - of 1,300 Japanese soldiers, Is much commented on here. If the re port of the battle is correct, the Chin ese cavalry in dividing the Japanese forces In two parts, did excellent work and displayed generalship of no mean order.' ' . KNIGHTS IN WASHINGTON. Provleion for Ten Thousand Visitors ' . Has Been Made. Washington, August 23. This city was formally taken possession of by the Knights of Pythias at 4 p. m. today. Tho officers expect more than 10,000 knighU, for whom provisions have betn made, and who will be on hand, and today General Camahan called on the the war department to ask for a loan of army tents in case of emergency. One of the most important questions to como; up will be an attempt to en force fc rule that the ritual should be given In English. An Important question is the exclu sion of liquor dealers from the order, and It!l3 predicted a constitutional pro vision (for that purpose will be adopted, jvANT UNITED ACTION.

Butterflies Goes Through Spase With tho Speed of a Whirlwind. New York, August 255. The futurity day at the Coney Island Jockey Club track, was an Ideal day for a summer cutlng. About 25,000 persons were pres- ent. Butterflies was the choice by a large majority, and 6 to B was the beat price obtainable on her, closing at 4 to Aftar fifty minutes' Uolay, they were sent away to a good start, Butterflies ahead. When the half was reached, Butterflies had a lead of two lengths, and Griffin was looking back and eas ing his mount. Agitator, under the strong urging of Taral, had come up to second place. Around tho turn into tho main track tbey' came with a rush, and while Butterflies seemed to be going easily, the others- were being urged to their Utmost to catch the fast flying fllley. It seemed to be all over but tho shouting, when suddenly the darkey, astride af the beautiful chestnut, shot out of the bunch be hind, ajid set sail for apparently an easy winner. It was Brandywlne. Grif fin heard the thunder of his hoofs, and glancing back saw a streak of chest nut lightning, with Clayton, riding like mad, after him. There was no time to waste now, and the clever light-weight Jockey began digging his - heela and riding for dear life. He,.could help hla mount little, for she was tired now, and With every, jump Bianflywlne'VaS catching her. . Now he was at her tan then his white nose was at her saddle, and Griffin' saw it poked . under his eyes, and he realized that he had to ride as hard as he knew to land the rich stakes for Gideon and Daly, and win a small fortune for thousands who had bet on ,the filly ho . was riding. Inch by inch the colt, was, gaining on him, and hq was straining his ear for tho finish,, now only a few yards away. A few mora Jumps and the finish line was passed by a tired boy on a tired filly, and the rich stakes were won by a head. The crowd cheered, but It would have been cheering the colt, If the race had been fifty yards further. Butterflies first; Brandywlne second; Agitator, third. Time, 1:11. EASTERN BASEBALL.
