Had Been Specially Selected for Delicate Duty. Was Supposed to. be Cool and Discreet. Squadron Turned Over to Capt Ming of Charleston. Washington, Oct 25—The peremptory removal today of Com and Acting Rear Admiral Stanton, stationed at Rio Janeiro, from command of the south Atlantic station, was one of the most startling surprises ever experienced in Washington official life, and for a time it has almost obscured the interest in the silver fight. Pres Cleveland took action after long conference with the secretaries of state and the navy, and when put in possession of all the facts and also of such further information as Senor Mendonca. the Brazilian minister in Washington, was able to furnish. The official order was briefly made public by Sec Herbert in the following memorandum: The navy department learned by authority late today by telegram from Rear Admiral Stanton, m command of the U 8 naval forces at Rio de Janeiro, that this officer had saluted the flag of Admiral Mello, commanding the insurgent fleet. This salute was unauthorized by any instructions the admiral had received. It was an unfriendly act toward a friendly power, and the secretary of the navy, after consulting with the president and the secretary of state, issued an order detaching Com Stanton from command of his squadron and turning it over to Capt Picking, the next officer in rank. In the early morning, state and navy departments officials were incredulous as to the possibility of there being any truth in the report sent last night from Berlin. Com Stanton had been specially selected for this post of duty, because he was considered to possess in a preeminent degree those qualifications of coolness and discretion which fitted him to deal with the revolutionary conditions prevailing in the various countries to which his assignment would naturally call him. One of the highest officers in the service, who himself probably influenced in no small degree Com Stanton’s appointment, remarked today: “This matter is as much a surprise to me as a slap in the face would be. The relations of the United States to the recognized government of Brazil were such that it was not believed possible that an officer of high rank and experience would go out of his way to give official salute aud recognition to the commander of a naval force avowedly in insurrection against the government and actually engaged in bombarding the national capital.” Cant Henry F. Picking of the Charleston, who relieves Com Stanton,is also an officer of experience. He has with him the cruiser Newark. Capt Casey, and in three days from now should be joined by the Detroit. Commander Brownson. Secretary Herbert was unwilling to speak as to what iurther action would be taken in Com Stanton’s case, but it is supposed a court martial will result. His successor in command of the south Atlantic station will not be determined upon hastily, but it is thought it will probably be Com Richard W. Meade. Com Stanton’s record as a naval officer is an excellent one. During the late war he held responsible positions. From 1871 to 1874 he commanded the receiving ship at Portsmouth. Naval officers who know Com Stanton are utterly at a loss to understand how he came to make so serious a mistake. TURRET SHIP AGROUND. Cruiser Republica Waiting a Chance to Sink the Ti rad en tea [Copyright.] Buenos Ayres, via Galveston, Oct 25 —The coast defense turret ship Bahia, on the way from Asuncion to join the fleet organized by the Pelxoto government against the rebel fleet, grounded today near Rosario, Uruguay.

Paris, Oct 25—At Clichy yesterday morning, while the train conveying the Russians to Versailles was crossing the Heine outlie Ashleres railway bridge, a woman on the parallel bridge waved the French and Russian flags, shouting: “Les voir et mourir; vive la Russie,” jumped into the river and was drowned.

Marion, Ind, Oct 25—At 2 o’clock this morning Summitville, a village of 1000 inhabitants 16 miles south of here,was the scene of one of the most desperate encounters that ever took place between two men, A night watchman, George Stroud, had been apprised of an intended raid on the general stores of Wilkens, Rosenbaum and others by members of an organized gang of robbers which he had been solicited to join. The purpose was to plunder as many stores as possible, and then to fire them to conceal the crime. A number of stores were guarded. In the Wilkens establishment were Deputy Sheriff Amos Coburn and two others. At 2 o’clock a window at the rear of the building was raised, and Dick Goodman entered. At the order to throw up his hands he began shooting. The first shot slightly wounded Coburn, who as rapidly as possible emptied two 44-calibre seven-shooters at Goodman. The latter emptied his resolver also. Directly opposite stood these two exchanging shots at a range of less than 18 feet. One of the shots brought down Goodman, who, nevertheless, got out of the window and ran for some distance before ha fell. He is shot in the abdomen and cannot recover. He was accompanied by Thomas May. who joined in the fusiiade at the window. May was also captured. Members of the Summitville horse thief detective association had joined the pickets, and in the attempt to capture the gang over IOO harmless shots were exchanged. The organization of plunderers is supposed to include over a dozen members, whose rendezvous is a few miles south of Summitville. Most of the members belong to respectable families. Officers are in pursuit of the rest of the gang.    * In a horizontal line in a space of six feet are 18 bullet holes just back of where Coburn stood. / The two furthest apart are within 14 inches of each other.

West End jfcene of the Shooting. Three Russians Quarreled Over Real Estate Deal. Dead Man Was Ugly and Had Drunk Hard. That it was Premeditated His Letter Shows. Louis Warsafsky, a Russian, rooming in a house on Green st in company with Simon Maj-telson. a fellow countryman, visited a mutual friend. Isaac Glass, at 21 Billerica st, about 11.30 last night, and becoming involved in a quarrel attempted to kill both, and failing, shot himself through the heart. It appears that the three were partners in a real estate transaction, and had a dispute about the division of interest. Martelson claimed that Warsafsky owed him some interest money. Glass and Warsafsky had collected a certain amount, a portion of which belonged to Martelson. Glass paid Ids portion, but Warsafsky did not. This was the cause of the unfriendliness existing between the parties which terminated so tragically* At first it was thought that a murder had been committed, but after a thorough investigation. and the discovery of a letter in Warsafsky’s pocket, it was concluded that he had killed himself. The noise of the shots attracted a big crowd, who stood horror-stricken when Warsafsky, after shooting himself, fell or threw himself from the fourth-story window. Glass was struck in the wrist by a bullet, and Martelson was shot in the cheek aud neck, neither wounds being serious. From the story told by the wounded men Warsafsky has been drinking for several days, and has been in an ugly mood. lie visited Martelson and asked him to come with him and see Glass, who occupies two rooms with his wife. Glass received his visitors pleasantly, although the hour was late. The men Talked Over Money Affairs, which did not furnish any satisfaction to Martelson. After a while Warsafsky fell asleep on the sofa, and Martelson and Glass shook him roughly and awoke him. He was wrathy at their action aud told them to leave him alone. A few minutes later he rolled off the sofa to the floor. They picked him up again. He rolled off a second time, and then he arose to his feet and with a string of oaths drew a 32 calibre revolver from his pocket and commenced firing at his countrymen. Martelson was struck in the cheek, and just as he was making his escape through the door leading to the stairway another bullet struck him in the heck. It did not render him unconscious, and he managed to reach the street, where he fell to the sidewalk. In the meantime Warsafsky was running around the apartment like a madman. Mrs Glass was in the room leading off from the one where the trouble started, and was screaming for help. Her husband rushed into this room and hid iii a closet. A moment later two more shots were heard, and Warsafsky fell from the window to the sidewalk. The wounded men were placed in an ambulance and taken to the Massachusetts general hospital. Warsafsky was alive wlieu picked up,but died just as the ambulance was passing through the hospital gate. The occupants of the house were questioned. but owing to their inability to speak good English aud their excited state, it was some time before the police could determine whether a murder or suicide had taken place. Mrs Glass said that she heard the men quarreling about the real estate, but she knew nothing more until she heard War-safsky say. "Let me alone: I don’t want to be bothered,” and then the shots were fired. Glass was questioned at the hospital and told the story of the affair substantially as stated above, He states that five shots were fired. When Warsafsky’s clothing was searched at the hospital the following Letter was Found, which convinced the police that the story told by Glass and his wife was true: Dear Friend Isaac Glass—As I ani about to meet my fate today I hope you will do me a favor. You will see that my mother and brother gets everything that belongs to them. You will please go up to my room. 68 Green st, and get everything there that belongs to me and send it to 139 Munroe' st, New York. You will also go up to the shop and get my tools and some money, and send it to New York and the rest of the property they shall get by law.

I have sent Bennet $150 to give $75 to mother He is mad with me too although he shall have half of what I possess. For a memory, see that Beunet gets my ring. My brother Sam gets my watch and chain and mother my umbrella. I was going to write them to forgive me SITUATION NOW CLEAR. Gov Russell Sums Up the National Issues at Stake. History of Silver Legislation That of Republican Errors. Republican Banquet in Music Hall. Immense Audience Cheers While Point After Point Gives the Kev Continued on tile Second Page. Haverhill, Oot 25—Democratic enthusiasm ran high in this city tonight. The Academy of musio was filled by a vast audience, which rose in abody and cheered long and loud as Gov Russell stepped quickly through the ranks of party leaders on the stago, and after bowing his compliments left and right took his seat by the side of chairman Cleveland Gould. None the less cordial was the reception tendered Hon Josiah Quincy. Haverhill felt honored at being selected as the place for the first of the governor’s speeches and its citizens turned out en masse and gave him a great welcome. Long before the governor made his appearance, the academy was crowded from pit to gallery. Gov Russell was introduced as the brightest gem in the diadem of New England politics and the next president of the United States. Round after round of applause followed, and it was only after repeated motions to keep quiet by the governor that he was allowed to begin his speech. As he made point after point, riddling the republican position, he was cheered again and again, and when the last note of bis eloquent voice died away the crowd gave him an ovation such as has never been rendered here. After the rally the governor received the hearty congratulations of the party leaders of this city. Gov Russell’s Speech. Fellow-Citizens—Your welcome makes me feel almost a s if again I were a candidate whom you were cheering on to victory ; but though not a candidate, I rejoice that at last relief from official engagements permits me to go into the thick of the fight and to raise my voice for our party, its principles, its honored candidates aud its braye and steadfast president. (Loud applause.) Gladly I thank the democracy for the united, earnest support which for years they have given me, and I urge upon them to give a like support to our able leader,who year in and year out has fought the good fight and kept the faith. (Applause.) We are honored in his candidacy, aud will honor Massachusetts in his election. (Applause.) I come tonight in a serious way to discuss some of tho questions uppermost in your minds. I do not mean with jest and story to trifle with these questions, nor to divert your minds by personal criticism of candidates. Both tho nominees for governor have already impressed themselves upon the people. We are quite ready that our argument should rest upon the impression they have made. We leave it to the people to say which has the greater qualifications, which would make the more able, dignified and serious executive and which would give to Massachusetts the most responsible and efficient administratiRi at home, and the position of power and of influence to which she is entitled in the nation. From top to bottom The Democratic Ticket commends Itself to the people. Its candidate for governor, not by sounding his own praises, not by proclaiming his own virtues and qualifications, but by long life of faithful service in state and nation, by an hon-orablo and distinguished record, by prominent ability, courage aud character commands the respect, and will, I believe, command the support of the people of the commonwealth. (Applause.) I am aware that in a state campaign with only state officers to elect, the people have a right to deutiind the discussion of state questions in which they are greatly Interested and upon which their election must have a decisive influence. They have a right to know the views of parties and candidates definitely and without evasion upon these questions, such as prohibition, executive responsibility, tile need and proper duties of an executive council, government by irresponsible commissions, and the right of home rule in city and in town. Upon all these the democratic party has taken a definite and progressive position which has been sustained by the people and will be again. To these questions I mean later to address myself. But tonight I propose especially to deal with national matters. We are in the midst of prevailing distress which all deplore, but out of which one party is striving to make political capital. It is well for us, therefore, to consider its cause, its remedy, where rests the responsibility for both, and the influence of our election upon the decision of these questions. I readily agree that the vote of Massachusetts will have A National Influence at least upon that brave and patriotic man who as president of the whole country and all the people stands firm in the midst of storm, dissensions and partisanship as the bulwark of the people’s rights and interests and of their demand for legislation and relief. He is listening to the voice of Massachusetts. He knows that the democratic party here in its candidate, its platform and its united mutts are behind him heart and soul in the fight. (Applause.) He is watching and waiting to hear in its success that word of 'good cheer and godspeed, which he has a right to have from this loyal commonwealth, to nerve him to the courageous discharge of his patriotic duty. (Applause.) Wnat sort of encouragement will it for him and the cause of repeal if Massachusetts, by the election of Mr Greenhalge, supports, forgives or forgets the man who by his vote given for politics and not for patriotism is personally responsible for tho ills we have? Is a bad law to be repealed by honoring its sponsor or supporter? No; a thousand times no. Rather let the righteous, indignant demand of our people si*mu at least part of its force in the punishment of such sponsor or supporter not only for present good but for future warning. (Applause.) I repeat that the ills we have are due to laws for which Mr Greenhalge and the republican party are responsible. I understand the issue lobe whotherour admitted distress is due lo existing republican legislation or impending democratic legislation. Let us see What the Situation Is. We are still living under the laws and pulley of the republican party. Their policy upon tariff and finance is still the law of the land. Our revenue is raised under republican taxation, our money is Gathering Dazzled by Rhetoric. Hon Thomas B. Reed the Lion. spent under republican appropriation. If mills are closed, remember that the republican McKinley bill Is still in force. If honest and sound money is threatened, remember that the republican Sherman bill is still unrepealed, If there is an accumulating deficit of $50,000,000 a year in the treasury, re mem ber that Pres Cleveland left to his successor a surplus of over $100,000,000, aud that our income and expenses since have been determined by the republican party. These causes, many growing and still existing gave us four years of reckless, extravagant republican legislation with the inevitable result of panic and distress. We find ourselves today suffering from diminished revenue, increasing expenses, reduced gold reserve and a flood of useless silver. No wonder confidence is shaken and business stagnant. Yes, bat the republican party through its McKinley bill declared its purpose to shut off im ports and so reduce revenue. Then it set the precedent of the extravagant billion dollar congress and by its laws fastened these expenses on the future. Then for politics and politics only protection and silver made their infamous coalition for taxing and skinning the people, and against the unanimous protest of the democratic party passod The Sherman Bill. We know the excuse of the republican party that the Sherman bill was necessary to defeat free coinage. We deny it, and no intelligent man believes this. The house had already defeated free coinage. The president, it was known, would veto it. Their excuse means that it could pass by a two-thirds vote the senate, and by a two-thirds vote the house, where a majority had already declared against It. No, the Sherman bill was not passed from natriotism, to avert a danger, but from politics to risk a danger in order to save the mining states to the republican party and secure the Dassage of the McKinley bill. And so republicans themselves have con fessed. Senator Teller, a republican, said in the senate recently that Senator Sherman. when he reported his bill, stated in the most emphatic manner that the house of representatives had determined in very positive way that no free coinage bill could pass that body. He added that "keeping as closely within the rales of senatorial decency and courtesy as the circumstances will admit,’ the later ex cuse of Senator Sherman ’was an after thought.’ and that the real purpoae of the passage of that bill was ‘to maintain intact in the northwest the republican column of states.’ Senator Sherman on July 8, 1890, in reporting his bill used the language which I have quoted, and Congressman Walker of this state, In the discussion in the house declared: ‘We republicans waut to come back. That is all there is In This ■ liver BUI, pure politics. Being a republican and voting polRicklly I am for this bill.’ (Laughter.) I admit that neither party is united upon thiN question. But the difference between the two parties is that at the critical moment the republican party yields to flnau cia! heresy in its ranks and the democratic party conquers it. Let us look at the record. In 1884, notwithstanding a difference of opinion in the democratic party, Mr Cleveland an nounced his firm opposition to free coinage and all unsound silver legislation, and for the four following years there was no talk or hope of such legislation. Contrast this course with the action of the re publican party in 1888, which. Instead of supporting him in his course, by the solemn action of its national convention denounced him aud his party for its hostility to silver. Then the republican party followed this by the admission of silver territories with scarcely enough population to be entitled to a member of congress, and did this to strengthen the republican party in the senate for years to come, no matter what the injury might be to the country. Then it followed this action by the passage in 1890 of the Sherman bill, and Mr McKinley, its leader, was sent through the country advocating silver and denouncing Cleveland and his party for their opposition to it. An ominous silence followed in the republican platforms in state and nation while The Bangers and Evils of their Sherman bill were becoming more and more manifest. Contrast such action with the record of the democratic party in 1892—in congress and in their national convention. There it met and fought and defeated the spirit of financial unsoundness within its party, denounced the Sherman bill, demanded its repeal, aud nominated for president the man who stands today and always has stood as a pillar of strength for sound and honest money. (Applause.) And the democratic conventions since have sustained him iii his course. Within a few weeks in Nebraska the democratic party in convention, by a vote 3 to I, indorsed his policy. And now the country turns with confidence to the democratic party to cure this distress by undoing republican legislation. It knows the cause of its trouble and the cure. From boards of trade and business centers throughout the country there has come a unanimous demand for what? To let the tariff alone? No. but, without a dissenting voice, to repeal the Sherman bill. Patiently and hopefully business watches every move at Washington as if its very life depended upon the action of the senate. No barometer ever more truly indicated change of weather than business feels today the ups aud downs of the movement for repeal. It knows and says through its representatives that one predominant cause of our trouble is the financial legislation of a republican congress, and the one remedy for the evil is its repeal by a democratic congress. (Applause.) But the republican party, anxious to get ' U lr Of This Responsibility, pretend that our troubles are due. not to existing laws, but to laws which the democrats mean to pass: that we are not reaping the whirlwind which the republicans have sown, but are suffering because an overwhelming majority of the people have thrust them from i>ower and condemned Congressman Dalzell: Saucily Eloquent. Greenhalge and Wolcott Make Short, Sharp Speeches. Bitter Partisan Flavor in Remarks of Each. Applause Was Unstinted and Wilily Enthusiastic. Continued on the Sixth Page. Never did the cry of calamity come, let fall from the lips of republican orators, find readier or more appreciative acquiescence, and never did those great and shining lights of republicanism—Hon Thomas B. Reed of Maine and Hon John Dalzell of Pennsylvania—shed their effulgence on a more devout or more enthusiastic and sympathetic body of admirers than last night in Music hall at the third annual dinner of the Republican club of Massachusetts. It was not the dinner itself—far from it, for the menu was of the picnic, rather than of the banquet variety—that distinguished the event above the ordinary republican love feast.    , As In salads, so in this particular social function, it was rather the proper blending of the elements which accounted for its success. In the first place every man there, from the most distinguished general of them all down to the lowest private, was a stanch republican, a firm upholder of, if not a sincere believer in, the McKinley tariff, the force bill, and every other kindred republican measure. Every utterance almost of the speakers, and every punctuation of approval on the part of their listeners, bristled with partisan sentiment, partisan prejudice and partisan loyalty. Another, and perhaps the crowning element, was the presence, in addition to the great congressional luminaries above mentioned, of Hon Frederick T. Greenhalge of Lowell and Hon Roger Wolcott, the party 'standard bearers of the present campaign, as well as a number of other prominent leaders of the party in Massachusetts. Add to this the nicety of arrangement* on the part of the gentlemen in charge, which comprehended the smallest detail as regards the convenience and comfort of all, and you have in brief a summary of the reasons for the occasion’s success. The decorations themselves formed a distinctive aud striking feature of the affair. Most prominent in this respect wore the two large crayon portraits of Greenhalge and Wolcott at the rear of the stage, with their patriotic background of American flags. Indeed, with the single exception of these portraits and the silken banner of the republican club itself. AU the Decorations Throughout the hall consisted ot the national colon. The attendance came fully up to anticipations, and crowded every vestige of space on floor and gallery. There were 700 people to be entertained, first by the cold lunch and later by the orations of the few after dinner speakers, and an equal if not greater number who had not the privilege of the menu, but who from their respective coigns of vantage in the galleries drank In with eager appreciation the flow of post-prandial rhetoric. Three tables, extending from end to end of the stage sufficed for tim notables, who sat facing the balance of the diners. A glance at the list of the platform occupants affords a fair idea of the represents tive quality of the assemblage. Seated there at the center of th* first tank' was ex Senator Simpkins of the Cape, president of the republican club of Mass* chusetta, with Congressman Read of Maine aud candidate Greenhalge on his immediate right; Congressman Dalzell of Pennsylvania and candidate Wolcott on his immediate left, while ranged along the line sat chairman Winslow of the republican state committee.
