The MlfNisHlppI Constitution Sinkers Working for the Anglo Siixon-The Be-eults In Mitlno-Miissncliiissfitts Prolii-bitionlHts rut Up II Ticket. Indianapolis, Sept. 1].-The Eepub-lican state convention was called to order at 10 o'clock by Chairman Michener, of the state central committee. Hon. R. W. Thompson, ex-secretary of the navy, was elected permanant chairman. In his address Chairman Thompson said that fifty years ago he attended a convention in this city, whose chief aim it was to condemn the Democratic party for its policy of government, and that the history of the past fifty years had shown that the Democratic party was still incompetent to take charge of the government. Mr. Thompson spoke for nearly un hour. A resolution endorsing Speaker Reed was read and greeted with loud cheers. A resolution was adopted ordering the secretary of the convention to send a congratulatory telegram to Thomas B. Reed, "Formerly of Maine, but now of the United States." The ticket nominated is as follows: Secretary of State-Milton Trussler of Fayette county. Auditor of State-Col. I. N. Walker of Morion. Treasurer of State-George W. Pix-ley of Allen. Attorney General-John H. Lovett of Madison. Clerk of the Supreme Court-W. T. Noble of Wayne. Chief of the Bureau of Statistics-John Worrell. Judge of the Supreme Court-R. W. McBride. Tile Mississippi AVIiitos. Jackson, Miss., Sept. 11.-Hon. John E. Fewel was the first speaker in the constitutional convention. He realized that measures should be adopted to insure the supremacy of the white man, and in the face of the extraordinary preponderance of negroes the difBcul-ties in the way were perplexing. He had no fear for ^he future, however, as the history of .the world furnished evidence that the' Anglo-Saxon was able to take care of himself. The speaker saw danger indirectly in the great labor system of the state, and severely criticized the Australian ballot system as ineffectual. The poll tax system, he predicted, would disfranchise more white men than negroes, as the poor negroes would be furnished means to pay by the Republican fund. Senator George and Messrs. McLean of Grenada and Lacey of Chickasaw spoke against woman suffrage. Mr. Eskridge of Yallsbusha and Gen. I, D. Lee, president of the state agricultural college, favored it.

I'lie National Crop Ituport Siiowlng Low ilveragcs for Wlioat, Corn, Oats and Potatoes - Speaker Bccd Kotnrns to Wasiiington. Washington, Sept. 11,-In the sen-ale concluding speeches on the tariff bill were made by Senators Hoar, His-cock, Turpie, Vest, Vance, Gibson and Jones of Nevada. At 5:-^<) a vote was laken. Senator Vest characterized the bill as the culmination of what was called the protective principle in this country, and a glaring illustration of the historic truth that class legislation never recedes. He congratulated the country on the passage of th^bill, because he believed that the sooner the crisis was reached and the issue brought to a finish the better it would be for the country and all its material interests. Coming to the question of the decay of the foreign commerce of the United States, he ridiculed the reasons given out on the Republican side, and said that the great and stupendous cause of its decay was the old navigation law-a relic of barbarism. It was the Republican party which refused, in a spirit of barbaric exclusion, to permit the American people, to purchase their ships where they could purchase them cheapest and put them under the stars and stripes. Senator Vest went on to denounce the action of the finance committee, and of Republican senators on the sugar schedule, and declared on the authority of a statement of Senator Allison's in 1888 that the reduction of the standard of free sugar from No. 16 to No. li?, and the increase of the duty above No. 14 fi-om 4-10 to 6-10 of a cent a pound, would put $-20,000,000 a year in the pockets of the sugar refiners. Coming to the question of reciprocity. Senator Vest declared the people of the west could not give up the market of Great Britain. The English were bound to have the wheat, com and ineat products of the west. The South -American people did. not �want these products and would not take them. Senator Vest opposed the reciprocity amendment because it committed to the president powers which were abhorrent to the principles of the government. Senator Vance said that the treasury had not, in the preparation of the bill, been considered in . the slighest degree. Its pm-pose was, so it was said, to reduce revenues, but it was not to reduce taxation. It was intended to increase taxation while reducing revenue, and to divert that increased taxation from the treasury of the people to the pockets of private parties. One objection Senator Vance made to the bill was that it was intensely and scandalously sectional. It made sugar free; and sugar was a southern product. It made the machinery for making beet sugar in the northwest free, and it maintained duties on the cane sugar machinery of Louisiana. Rice was a southern product, and the duty on rice was reduced. Binding twine for the western fields was made fi'ee, but the duty on cotton ties was tripled. He believed that the western farmer would be ashamed to look in the face of his brother farmer of the south after that unjust discrimination. The bill had one redeeming feature, and that was its intense and naked selfishness, which would be the means of arousing the consciousness of the American people and of leading to its repeal. Senator Jones of Nevada made an address in commendation of the policy of the protective system and illustvative of its effect in developing the mechanical arts and the industrial forces of a nation. He compared the free traders to the robbers and pirates of the middle ages, and said free trade would result in the deatvuction of industry. Free trade, he said, would bring the watch, protection would bring the watchmaker. Men constituted society, machines did not. Not only was free trade delusive as a theory, but it was in fact falling into discredit where it existed. In conclusion. Senator Jones said that he regarded the pending bill as one of the most beneficient measures that could be enacted into legislation-unless, indeed, the duties were made higher. If he had his way he would make it a tariff of exclusion on all the articles in the production of which the same employment of mental and physics force would have the same results in the United States as elsewhere, and thenfae.would let the adjustment take place among the people of the United States. � At this point of Senator Jones'speech, the presiding officer, Senator ringalls, announced that the six hours: assigned for general debate had expired.. The vote was then taken and the bill passed -^yeas, 40; nays, 39. Senator Aldrich moved that the senate insist on its amendment to the house bill, and.ask for a committee of conference, the conference to consist of seven of each side. The motion was agreed to, and Messrs.. Aldrich, Sherman,-Alli-(jon, Hisoook, MoPherson, Vance and Carlisle were appointed conferees on the part of the senate. ; ? The house spent the entire;;day filibustering on the question of approving the journal, the object of the obstruction being to prevent consideration of the Lang8ton--Venable election case. The entire day was spent in roll calls on filibustering motions.- : : .� Beed In WaghlOKton. WASHiNaTOit Sept. n.-Speaker Eeed reached Washington and appeared at; the Capitol at about H; o'clock.
