WASHINGTON, September lt was a very tamo display of pyrotechnics in tlie house today. Mr. Bayne, of Pennsylvania, who had yes- terday advocated the pjissago of the Enloo res- olutionnotifying the senate that the house' 'rep- robated and condemned" lne language of Mr. Kennedy in his attack upon the senate and individual senators, came to the .front this morning with a resolution to refer the whole matter to the judiciary committee, with in- J Btraclions to report back within three days. Ho said it well understood that the house -would take action disapproval upon the .speech, and strike at louse a part of it from the permanent records. He thought it should for its attitude upon great quest ion a affecting the welfare ot the peo- ple aa a revival of the most odious doctrines of that federalism which has eversoughtto establish 111 this country an aristocracy of wealth and des- potism of legislation. We declare for such a revision of tho tanJT as shall admit crude materials of manufacture free and beaten tho burdens upon the necessaries of lile. Ttua is true protection for the manufacturer, the laborer and the farmer. We charge the de- cline of over one -half in farm values in Connecticut to the republican tanft policy. We denounce the radically unjust and. panic-breeding Mciiialey bill, which will increase the cost of living and reduce the cost of luxuries. It is tho most outrageous measure of taxation ever prepared in an American congress. "We ac- cept James G. IJlaine'a interpretation of it as in- famous. We denounce the un-American and ty- rannical policy of Speaker Reetl and the majority of the house, which deprives the house of its de- liberative character, arrogantly disregarding the rights of the minority, and establishing a system of central power. "We a liberal pension policy toward all soldiers and Bailors who were disabled in the service, and to their widows and dependent children, at the same time insisting that the treasury shall not be depleted tor the benefit of bounty jumpers, doserters and impostors.

We regard the secret ballot law enacted by tlie general assembly, in response to repeated demands of tlie democratic party, as ajstep in the right direction, and we favor euch amendments thereto as will render compulsory secrecy abso- lute for the suppression of bribery and Intimida- tion, and will prevent such attempted evasions of the same as were pr'Cticed by a lugh authority at the last election in tho city of Hartford. We favor legislation to protect the people from adulterated food products, and we demand that such laws shall be executed by officials who are in sympathy with them, and not political beiienci- aries. We invite the voters of the state to co-operate with us in this campaign to reduce the unread of centralizing ideas and re-enthrone the will of the people._______________ MONTANA DEMOCRATS. Meeting of the State Convention at Helena. The Platform Adopted. HELENA, Mont., September demo- cratic state convention yesterday nominated Judge A. A. Dixon for congress. There were no state officers to be nominated. The com- mittee on platform did not report until very late. It is devoted in a large part to the elimination of the vote in precinct 34 ol 174 votes of last year, and calls upon the good people of both parties to rebuke that elimina- tion by their votes this year. It advocates the free coinage of silver; the reduction of Indian reservations; the passage of laws preventing the acquirement of mineral lands by land grant railroads; condemns the McKinley and force bills: calla on congress for a reduction, of the revenue; the administrations of President Cleveland and Governor Toole are com- mended, and the contest of Martin Maginnis and W. A. Clark before tho United States senate ia endorsed. The reference to Mr. Cleveland was received with applause. TCbe Massachusetts Labor BOSTON, September Massachusetts labor party gathered here in convention today. Tho following state ticket was nominated: Governor, Charles E. Marks, Somerville; lieutenant governor, George B. Peare, Lynn; secretary of state, John U1. Dowd, Hyde Park; treasurer, George J. J. Moalton, Boston; at- torney general, J. Johnson, Greenfield; aud- itor, P. F. O'Neill, Boston. THE WORLD'S FAIH. The Unties of Z-ady Managers, Discussed- Selection of a Director General. CHICAGO, September of the features of the afternoon session of the world's fair commission was a speech by Commissioner McDonald, ot California, advocating, as he said, the rights of, the whole of America to due recognition. Mr. McDonald had introduced a report defining the duties of the board of lady managers, insisting that the subject be given to the judiciary committee( with instructions to report not than Thursday, fixing the duties and compensation of lady managers. He asked for a vote in favor of immediate action. Adopted. The report of the committee on roles was adopted. The report of the committe filing the status of the executive committee was clinched by a motion lor reconsideration, which motion was promptly ordered to be laid on the table. The membership of the executive committee and the fixing of the salary of the director general are subjects likely to occupy much time tomor- row. Great interest is being taken in the make up of the executive committee, as that body apparently will, to a very large degree, con- stitute tho real managers of the great exposi- tion. A director general will probably be chosen Thursday. _______ Ezeta Elected President. September depart- ment of state has received a telegram from Minister Mizner, at Guatemala, saying that the old assembly of Salvador has unanimously elected Charles Ezeta provisional president of the republic until the first of nest March. The telegram reached the department through MiniaterByan, at the City of Mexico. ITAS FOVR GJSESS. THEY MEET IN JOINT DEBATE, And the People Conglomeration ol Politics that ,J5o Not to Whose Sldrts to SPARTANBWHG, S. C., September; [SpeV clal.] The race Tor tjie nomination of a con- gressman from this, tbev fourth district, ia in dead eaijtest, with five- popular candidates in the. field, each representing a phase oC tfie factional politics now agitating the state. The contest will be the closest-, and hottest ever known: in the Piedmont region. The inner, whoever he isf will go under the line under the lash, and win by a neck only. national. questions, such as the sub; ueasury scheme and free coinage, will be iruch discussed. by no means tlotho question. POLITICS AT FEVER. HEAT. J State politics are still at fever heat man or anti-Tillman will come in, for. full sliare of consideration, but in all- proba- bility, in a contest such as the where both factions have two or more representa1- tives, the man who can acquit himself "heftt' upon tho stump and gain the greatest personal popularity, will get there. Who may ba this lucky individual it is yet impossible to ture. v Today had been sot apart for them to in public debate in this city, and they were all here, loaded for bear. Major D. K. Duncan and Dr. B. M. are natives of this county. Of the other Colonel I. G. McKissick is from Union, tain G. "VY. Shell from Laurens, and Dr. Mauldin from Greenville. The three last- named gentlemen came in yesterday, and.eince then have been closeted pretty much all the time with their prominent supporters, An incident of the race which is especially interesting is that two of the most prominent figures in the late farmers' movement are can- didates. At one time it looked as if these two gentlemen were on the verge of revealing all the secrets of the late Tilluian campaign. THE DIFFERENCE OF OPINION. Dr. K. M, Smith claimed that in ion of the spoils, he was allotted the con- gressional nomination from this district, and Captain Shell, author of the much-talked-of manifesto, was to be rewarded with the secre- tary-of-stateship. These things having been settled and agreed upon by the caucus which arranged the Tillman caufpaign, Captain Shell says if Dr. Smith says those things he says w hat is not so. Dr. Smith modifies somewhat his statements, butstioks to the sub- stance of them, hut they have been calling each other some pretty bard names in a Pickwickian sense. As each is a prominent and populat' Tillnmnite, the farmer vote will be split. Air of this took place some time since, and it waa anticipated that today's meeting would be big and honorably. He had been selected by the Richmond and Danville railroad to represent them in this section. should the people honor him with a seat in he would pledge himself' to np that position to devote his entire time and 4alenfc to their interest; In his-estimation the tariff was 'the most important measure with which the' people of the south had to deal. The tax imposed by the McKinley bill would ruinous to our farmers.' Mr. Blaine had stolen democratic thundor, for1 Ills reoiprooity treaty was nothing but a-revising of the tariff, such as was proposed by President Cleveland. Tho surplus in tho treasury had been spent by tho republican system of building up one class at the expense of another. was for any measure which put more money into the country. If it would help the people for banks to he given the power to issue notes loaned on real estate or any other prop- erty, he would vote for and support such a measure. Major Duncan was frequently interrupted long arfd loud applause, and before he sat down he had his audience with him almost to a man. BUT A FEW MINUTES LEFT. He was followed by T, G. McKessick, who owing to the lateness of the hour only spoke a few minutes. He did not touch upon any of the more important questions in tho campaign nU his remarks were mostly of a humorous character. Today's meeting pretty well demonstrated one thing, Dr. Bob Smith, for years political boss of the, has about lost his control over the people, and-thcro is a pretty general feeling of relief that such should bo the case._____________ SENATOK G3SOEGE The other candidates are overjoyed at the condition of affairs, and expect to reap a rich harvest of votes in consequence of tho quarrel. But the result of today's meeting has hardly justified the expectations concerning an open rupture between Smith and Shell. Their private differences were forgotten in the effort of each to deal with the public question under discusion. "When the meeting waa called to order by Dr. Smith, there were a few rambling cheers for him, but tho majority of the audi- ence present were evidently there as the par- tisans of no ono. They had come to listen earnestly and judge of the candidates on their respective merits. The meeting took place in the courthouse, where were assembled six hundred or more men, most of them the higher class of farmers. CAPTAIN SHELL OFF. The first speaker introduced was Captain G. W. Shell, of Laurens. He began by assuring the audience that there was something wrong with the government in which, after twenty years of unexampled in- dustry, the farmer found himself growing poorer and poorer from one end of the land to the other. Manufacturers and followers of trades were accumulating- vast wealth. Every- body and everything was prospering except the farmer and his interests. He kuew tliat captious crossroad critics said it was because the farmer was idle and extravagant, but such an assertion was the basest lie ever perpe- trated. There had been, and was still being made, an effort to excite prejudice against him (Shell) by accusing him of -slandering the state officers of South Carolina. Aa the author of the Shell manifesto, he stood before his fel- low countrymen and challenged them to prove it. There was not one word in that manifesto which charged dishonesty or corruption. He was in favor of a more equal distribution of the school fund. The South Carolina Uni- versity should not have so much, and the farmers, through their agricultural colleges and tho public schools, should have more of it. He was in favor of free coinage or any measure that would put more money into tbe country. He waa opposed first, last and all the time to the internal revenue laws. In speaking of the subtreasury plan, he said he would endorse that or any other bill to cheapen money, but as it came to the people he could not give it his support. It proposed to have all the officers connected with it ap- pointed by the United States government, which meant no more nor less than that South Carolina should be overrun by a herd of re- publicans and negroes, who would re-enact tlie outrages of twenty years outrages greater than any other people under the sun had ever had to endure. SMITH FOLLOWS. The next speaker was Dr. B. M. Smith. He said he would open his remarks by giving a short history of the present monetary system of the country. He was in favor of repealing the internal revenue laws, and he was willing to swallow the suhtreasury scheme in toto. Dr. Smith occupiednearlyaHof histime in defend- ing the sabtreasurjrbill against the objections suggested by Captain Shell. His speech was short, and did not call forth the enthusiasm expected by his supporters. ME. BtAITUOIN ON THE STAND. W. Jj. Mauldin next made an address, in Which, he opposed the subtreasury hill, the national hanking system, and advocated ab- solutely gfree coinage. His remarks wore well received by the crowd, and he wap fre- quently interrupted by loud applause. fiiAjoE. B- DUNCAN'S STBIKE. The next speaker on tbe programme was Major D. E. Duncan. He was evidently the most popular man. with the as several attempts had been made to cheer hiim during the other speeches, but when he ascended- the stand the enthusiastic reception awarded him put his great popularity beyond question. Bound after round of applause shook the i building, and prevented his voice being heard for several minutes. He said ho was a lawyer attempted to pursue hia profession aon- On the Buff race Question Boforc the Gonsti tutifmal Contention. JACKSON, Miss., September event of the day in the constitutional convention was the speech of Senator George. Predictions are free tonight that his speech will ao influence the convention as to cause the suffrage report to be adopted by a majority of thirty. In the course-of his remarks the senator de- nounced as untrue the reports that elections in Mississippi since 1875 hadbeen carried by force and fraud. He admitted that there were cases of that description here and there, brought about by peculiar circumstances, but these were only exceptions to the general rule of fair and peaceable elections. He further declared -that he conceded'to the negro the same right to life and liberty that the white man enjoys, but he denied that the negro had the right to, destroy the civilization of Missis- sippi; and that right he wair unwilling to ac- coru> to him. The speaker then reviewed the committee's report on tho .suffrage plank section by section, and closed by appealing to the convention to save [Mississippi, to rise above local or personal prejudices.and consider the question presented in a spirit of patriotism. The next speaker, Ford, a delegate from the state at large, opposed the Dortch law and all property qualifications. General "W. T. Mar- tin, of Adams county, made a fierce attack on the committee's report, denouncing it asla makeshift and, only temporary benefit. He n-nA jyiprtpoi-ty the.only efficient remedy for the suffrage evil complained of. and character- ized all milder measures as the outcome of moral cowardice.________ REPUBLICANS SPLIT. They Accuse Each Other Being Bribe Takers. GREENVILLK, S. C., September various factious of the g. o. p. in this state have divided, and split worse than the democrats seemed, until the state nomi- nating convention at Columbia lost week healed tbe breach andreconciled its factions. Determined to not bo outdone by the demo- crats of tlio state, the republicans of this county held two county conventions on Satur- day last. Both claimed to be legal, and both elected delegates to the state and congressional conventions. The minority convention, com- posed of about one-third of the delegates, with D. K. Speer, white, chairman, instructed their delegates to the state convention to support E. M. Brayton for chairman. Tho majority of the convention, headed by Tom Brier, colored, as chairman, instructed its delegates against Brayton. A lively time waa had at both meet- ings. A number of the delegates accused each other openly of offering and receiving bribes for their votes and influence, which, by the way, seemsto be their only incentive in keep- ing the party together in this state. Four Tickets In Berkeley. CHARLESTON, S. C., September republican convention in Berkeley county split today and two conventions were organized, representing Brayton and two republican candidates for congress in the seventh district. Berkeley is now the banner county of the state, having four separate polit- ical democratic and two re- publican. The fight is going to be bitter. It is reported that the Braytonites will coalesce with one of the democratic, and the Milleritos with the other democratic faction, between whom the fight is equally bitter. Both repub- lican conventions elected delegates to the stato convention. The Millerites will support any- body for state chairman to beat Brayton. HE HIS WIFE Bather Than See HOP teat! a Life of lilew His Brains Out. September Whalley, aged forty-five, fatally shot his wife today and then blew his own brains out. The woman was an ginmate of a house of ques- tionable character against her husband's will and it is said that Whalley told a friend last night that rather than her lead a life of shame, he would kill her. The woman will probably die. Whalley's parents reside in Nor- folk, Va., and are said toJbevery wealthy. Knocked Down and Sobbed. SAN ANTONIO, Tex., September Sierna, aged eighty years, and one of the most prominent Mexicans of this city, was returning from the Mexican fiesta last night alone, when he was attacked by two footpads, one of whom atiuck the old man on the head with a club, knocking him senseless and inflicting a fatal wound. After the high- waymen.hadroboedthe man of a small amount of money, they fled. Her Sentence RICHMOND, Ya., September gov- ernor has commuted the sentence of Nannie Woods, colored, sentenced to "be hanged Sep- tember Iflth, for burning tho town of Kocky Mount, Franklin county, last October, to im- prisonment for life.-__________ Hew "Fork Wants a NEW YORK, September sanitary police this afternoon completed the census of the second ward of this city. It showaa total of residents of the ward instead of 922, as reported, by the census men. This is an excess of nearly 30 per cent over Superintendent Porter's figures. The health commission, after considering this, adopted a resolution setting' forth that the evidence pointed clearly to the conclusion that the census of this city, as announced! is both inaccurate and incomplete, ana called upon the mayorto order a new census to be taken of all inhabitants of-the city. Richmond Wants a New Census. BICHMOND, "Va., Sopteniber At the meeting of the city council tonight, Mr. Stratton introduced a resolution providing for taking a new census of Biclunond by the police The matter waa referred to the committee on police. Mr. Stratton said he thought persons had beemnisSed in the late count, THE GOVERNOR HOME jtFTEB A, T.OfiG XBIP TBBOV0ET THE .AS TO THE EXTRA SESSION e Thinks the Bondholders Would Do "Well to Accept the Compromise Offered Them Now. RICHMOND, Va., September Governor McKiimey returned to the city this evening from his vacation of two months, spent chiefly at the Bine Kidge and Cold Sul- phur .Springy He traveled through southwest Virginia, and spent a few days at his old home in Farmville. Tho governor thinks the boom which had its origin in Tioanoke a year or two ago, and has since spread all through the south- west, will radiate the entire state, and he thinks the outlook was never so bright for the material growth and prosperity of the old com- monwealth. He thinks Glasgow will have the most rapid growth of any place in Virgina, perhaps even beating Roanoke. He says the crops are excellent, and everywhere that he lias been there is thrift, and in the mineral sections people are coming rapidly as well as money. THE EXTRA SESSION. Speaking of the probability of an extra session of the general assembly during the coming winter the governor said, with the light before him now he can see no reason why one shall be called unless the Cleveland-Olcott committee has something tangible to present with reference to the set- tlement of the state debt. His excellency is very anxious that the debt shall be settled, and says the people are BO tired and worn out with it that they will not much longer suffer themselves to be worried with the intricate and vexed subject. The governor said the bondholders would certainly do better to ac- cept something like what the Riddlebergerbill offers, or they may soon do far worse- "While not saying quite that much he intimated that if there is not some settlement in a very few years, the whole obligation may he repudiated ay the people. At least he thinks the senti- ment is strongly drifting that way. INCREASE tN THK VALUES. While there has been a considerable increase in the values of the state, there has been equally as large an increase in her expenses. The disabled confederates, he thinks, the state is in honor bound to provide for, and the asy- iums for the insane are crowded until their doors are almost bursting and there is a con- stant cry for increased accommodations which must he afforded. MISTAKE. JBTuneral Services Over tho Body of Inventor. STOCKHOLM. September train hearing the "body fof Captain Ericsson arrived at Fiispitad, at 9 o'clock yesterday morning. All along the route the passage of the funeral train brought forth manifestations of sorrow and respect. At many places there were ap- propriate decorations to mark the occasion. When the train reached Filipstad, tho whole population turned Twelve miners carried the body into the eliurch, where Bishop Rundgren performed. the funeral services. Tho coffin was thea deposited in a chapel, which had been erected especially for its reception in an adjoining cemetery, which is the finest in Sweden. Officers of the war ship Baltimore are being feted on all sides. The king received them afi QOOD today, and they were given prominent places at a gala opera performance tonight. When the American officers entered the opera house the orchestra played an American anthem, and the audience rose en masse. STXU. IN TKK BUSINESS. fe Prefers Charges Against a Brother Offi- cer, But Shows His Own Negligence. AUGUSTA, Ga., September The police commissioners had a long session this evening, which ended in the suspension of Sergeant Matthew Sheron for sixty days. The death of Chief Twiggs and the promotion of Lieutenant Hood was considerable rivalry alnong the several sergeants of the force for this prize. First Sergeant Hennies had the right of way by seniority of office, out he found a dangerous rival in Sergeant Sheron, who was a popular young officer and a very efficient policeman. To kill off Sheron, Sergeant Hen- nies preferred charges against him of neglect of duty and breaches of discipline growing out of occurencea which came within his knowledge months ago. He has carried his point and put Sheron out of the way, but though the commissioners have not acted on his ease, he has also ruined his own chances. He was Sheron's senior oflicer, and should have ropoited these cases against him when they occurred. These two prominent candidates out of the way, it is probable that Sergeant Joe Cart- ledge, who comes next in rank, will now bear off the prize. His election would give general satisfaction, for he is one of the most efficient and popular men on the force. The matter has passed beyond the police force in its circle of interest, and the result of each meet- ing of the police commissionersis awaited with interest and discussed by the community. CK-ESSON'S DISTINGUISHED VISITOR The President Receives a Light esies Shown Him. CitEssoN SPRINGS, Pa., September president's mail this morning was light, and although he transacted considerable business it was mainly of a routine and unimportant character. Mr. George W. Boyd, of the Penn- sylvania railroad, arrived here this morning in Vice-President Thomson's olegaat private car and placed it at General Harrison's disposal during his stay at Cresson. It will be used in making short trips to many points of interest in this vicinity. The early adjournment of congress will shorten the president's vacation in the mountains as it is his purpose to be in Washington during the closing of the session. TalliIns With tlio Aldermen. CHABLOTTE, N, C., September consultation between the board aldermen and the Charlotte Consolidated Con- struction Company, in regard to the affairs of the companv, was held. The company wants to secure the right of way for their electric line through the city's property, at the graded school grounds, out to their park, and asked the city to build a safe bridge over the Char- lotte, Columbia and Augusta crossing, in front of the school property. TLe board agreed to give the right way, and to see that the right sort of a bridge, presumably an iron one, is built.______________ The Strike. WASHINGTON, September JOTUV neymen house-painters of this city struck for an eight-hour day thia morning. Between 200 3and 300 men are out. Some of the smaller bosses have yielded, but those employ- ing many men have refused to do so. Both sides are firm. Ten painters at work on the exterior of the white house building were among those who struck. Five non-union men were put in their places. The boss hav- ing the contract for the interior painting gave in to the demands of his men. The Aransas City Scheme. SAN ANTONIO, September Governor "Wheeler, who, with Russell B. Harrison, is at the head of tho Aransas City enterprise, is here, and states that work has been commenced on the Termi- nal railroad, and that it will be completed to Harbor island within forty days. He states tnat deep water at Aransas Pass is assured, and that S20Q.OOO worth of lots have been sold at Aransas City daring the past three days. The Conferees Meet. "WASHINGTON, September conferees on the tariff bill had an informal meeting to- night at the residence of Senator Aldrich. No action was taken, thfi evening being spent in a general discussion and interchange of views. In view of the delay in selecting conferees on the part of the house, it is believed now that the bill will not be reported by the conferees to the senate before Monday neact. The New Grand. Sire. KANSAS CITY, Mo.t September special to The Star from Topeka says that Charles ST. Busbee, of Ealeigb, N, C., has been agreed upon by the sovereign grand lodge, I. O. O. IT., for grand sire to succeed General J. C, Underwood. Mr. Busbee ia a native of North Carolina, forty-four years oCageand will be the grand sire evor elected.. THE 11EMAINS OF ERICSSON.

It was in consequenca of the formation of these bands that Guatemala armed herself. Salvador pretended to consider, this a threat, and war enaned without the Guato maUns wishing it.
