Antonio Joseph Renominated by Acclamation at Las Vegas. W. B. Childers Elected Perma-. nent Chairman and Makes, a Ringing Speech. The Speakers Miss The Train. Special to The Banti Fe Herald. Las Vegas, Sept. 3.-One of those peculiarly delicious days, for which New Mexico is famous, dawned on the city this morning, and as the delegates to the Territorial Convention arrived on the train from the south they were greeted and welcomed by hundreds of citizens-. The visitors from Santa Fe, who alone filled one of the coaches of the train, were headed by the Tenth Cavalry band. After rendering some popular airs the line of march was taken to the St. Nicholas Hotel, the delegations being escorted by the reception committee and citizens. After breakfast an imposing street parade was made to the old town, returning to the opera house at 11 o'clock. The exterior of this fine building was handsomely decorated with arches of evergreens, American flags and bandanas, while across the street was suspended in letters formed of evergreens the legend "Welcome to Las Vegas." Upon arriving at the ball the delegates filed in, the band taking its place in the gallery. The rear wall had portraits of Cleveland and Thurman, franjed in the inevitable bandana, with two American flags crossed over them. The whole appearance was pleasing, and proved the wisdom of the committee in choosing the opera house. Temporary Chairman Y. A. Manzanares, Secretary Alex Gusdorf, of Taos, Interpreter Nestor Montoyn, Assistant Interpreter, Tomas Montoya. Chairman Manzananes, on being introduced to the convention, said: "Gentlemen of the Convention, allow me to express my sincere thanks for the honor you have done me in selecting me as your temporary chairman, and I extend to you a hearty welcome. I can only say that 1 hope your deliberations may be fruitful of good results, and that all friction may be avoided throughout. It has been suggested that all attend the depot at the reception of Senor Antonio Joseph at the train this evening, The first thing in order will be the selection of a committee on credentials." Dr. Gould announced that the Democracy ofBoston had assembled to ratify the nomination of Cleveland and Thurman and will be addressed by Roger Q. Mills. He moved that this convention telegraph the heartfelt sympathies of the Democrats of New Mexico to the Boston meeting. This was adopted with applause and Dr. Gould was authorized to send the telegram. Colonel Smith, United States district attorney, was then introduced amid applause. Concluding his speech he said: "I will bid you good day with this watchword-the trio, Cleveland, the conqueror. Thurman the Trojan, and Joseph the just." Loud and continued applause followed Colonel Smith's address, after which the band gave some beautiful music. After the committee on credentials were selected, the convention adjourned for dinner and reassembled at 2:30 p. m. The committee on permanent organization reported \V. 13. Childers, charman, and D. B. Gusdorf, secretary. Mr. Childers took the stand amid deafening applause. The delegates and spectators, who tilled a grand and spacious hall, were profoundly interested for over two hours, until 6:45 p. m., when President Childers had concluded his address. C. H. Gildersleeve moved that the convention proceed to nominate a candidate by vote of counties. This was amended by a motion of C. N. Blackv/ell that the rules be suspended and that Hon. Antonio Joseph be declared the nominee by acclama- tion, which was carried with uproarious applause. The convention then adjourned and took a recess until 7:30 o'clock to meet Hon. Antonio Joseph, at the depot, en masse. A large concourse of the democracy headed by the tenth cavalry band accordingly gave the nominated a glorious welcome. Mr. Joseph was escorted to the convention, which convened at 7:40. As all, trains have left the depot it is impossible to reach the capital to-night. Mr. Joseph is expected to go to Albuquerque to-morrow to attend a ratification meeting at that place Wednesday night". . ' Las Vegas . N. M.

He is frequently crying and yelling, and when night comes his noise and yells are something frightful. He will stare around him and with his eyes bulging out, and crouching with terror, he will call to his assistants to "come and take them away," they are trying to kill him. The .windows have been guarded with iron grates to prevent him from jumping out. He is constantly watched, by three men in the daytime and three at night. major reno arrested.
