Boston Weekly Globe (Newspaper) - October 6, 1891, Boston, Massachusetts Remainder of year Fruh to one Dollar subscribers. Read announcement i re a trial subscription for rest of year Given to you for Only 15 cents. Vol. Xix no. 40.Boston, tuesday Mohning october 6, 1891. Price five talk on the differences North and South. Many sided reports from All parts of the country. Crops weather and other items of much interest. Raleigh n. C., oct. Southern exposition was opened today at noon. The weather was perfect and an unusual crowd was present. Or. Octavius Cohen managing editor of the Charleston s. A. World delivered the opening address. Among other things to said Quot the subject of my address is the Roal new South what it ought to be a and i intend to stick to my text. This very gathering today of persons and exhibits from All Over the South is of itself tangible evidence of the fact that we Are not going ahead As fast As we should and that we Are willing to admit our Lack of push in the past but i Trust that it May also be construed As being formal notice of our intention to relegate to the rear the antediluvian ideas of the old fogies of every Community and to apply 19th Century methods to 19th Century in Tennisee. Quot look to the hallowed past for your memories to the Active future for your Prosperity. A i should hesitate to speak thus plainly to a Southern audience were it not that i am to the Manor born. The Bones of six generations of my family mingle with Tho dust of Charleston the dear old sea a City the to paraphrase lord beacons old s famous words i am a southerner. Every Fibre of my being thrills with the traditions of my race a but i would be unfaithful to the Trust reposed in to today did i not Endeavor to Point out Tho roads which in Ray Humble opinion will Lead us to Prosperity. Quot nature has done much for the South Man has done but Little. Instead of employing our remarkable advantages of soil and climate As Steps to Lead to the Pinnacle of material Progress we Liao i regret to Sav simply made use of them to a sufficient extent to enable us to exist in scant Quot Hight Here in North Carolina and next door in my native state South Carolina to say nothing of the others which Are also greatly blessed do Yon not know and Are von not willing to admit that if new englander with their feverish push and keen financial instinct possessed half our advantages they would have two of the most thriving bustling and wealthy states g. The Union. Quot if they can extract Prosperity with Bleak Hills Rocky slopes and five months of Snowbank As bases Why cannot we accomplish the same result with the most Fertile lands and the most salubrious climate in the United states together with the ability to work out doors All the year round a we have lived too much within ourselves and we must Stop it immediately. Intercourse almost always involves education on some Point and it must therefore be of Benefit. Quot i say to you now my friends in All earnestness and with a full appreciation of the importance of the statement that the negro is with us to stay and the sooner we come to a realization of that fact the better. Quot and further i wish to express it As my honest conviction that if this were not so the future of the South at Large especially for the next thirty or forty years would appear to to to he very gloomy. Any great negro exodus Means untold loss to our people. Quot Tho negro is docile and gives a better Grade of Field labor for a Given amount of Money than any other nationality. In Many portions of the South Evenin my own state agriculture is next to impossible without Tho negro. He wants to live with us and continue to ride along with us to wealth and Prosperity and we must make it possible for him to do so. Climatically this is his Only proper Home in North America but we Are fast approaching the 20th Century and we must not shut our Eves to the fact that no sentient being is now willing to have his children grow in without some education. Therefore let the negroes have it As Woll As your own children. Cive lots of it to both of them and you will Merit the Well done of the civilized world and your own offspring will receive the direct Benefit of this Liberal policy. Quot on the other hand the negro must boar in mind that his place in the political Economy of the youth is clearly defined. Quot he must not Hope to Rule Here. He is incompetent to do so. Ile has once tried the Experiment and will himself admit that it was a terribly disastrous one for the South coining too As it did. Close upon Tho devastation and desolation of the greatest civil War Hie world has Ever known. Quot but the negro realizes All this Anc it is therefore needless to recall Tho armoires of those Stormy Days. Quot at the same time As i have already said. We owe him educational facilities and we should give them and with a Good Grace too. That to can Avail himself of them is amply evidenced by the showing made Here today in his department. Quot but above All my friends let us broaden our views let us not imagine that the Sun rises and sets Only in our Section let us ear in mind that the Money of the North Aud East stands awaiting the welcoming hand and evidence of willingness on our part to help ourselves to come Here to assist in de eloping our truly wonderful natural resources let us put aside Petty jealousies in Small communities let us devote less attention to electing thus that or the other Man to office and More to our own business in Short to borrow Tho vernacular of the Day let us Mako up our minds to a a Hustle a a so that when the historian of 1991 compiles his records the South will be found to Beth busiest and wealthiest As it is today the fairest most chivalric and god blessed land on the face of the Earth. Quot i have tried to Tell you the truth today. Swift says that flattery a the food of fools a and he is right. If my address to you shall prove of slight Benefit even to one Man. I shall be satisfied. I might have said Many things which would have sounded More prettily and. Perhaps have pleased you More but i believe with Popo who does Mink one i hint and another Tell my heart detests him us the Gates of hell. September fish figures.

Prof. Maynard declares use of Copper to be beneficial there is no injury to be found from eating grapes which have been sprayed with sulphate of Copper notwithstanding the recent cases of apparent poisoning from such grapes reported from new York City. This fact is asserted by prof. Maynard of the Hatch Experiment station and one of the most noted chemists in the country who has written the following letter to Secretary sessions of the state Board of agriculture dear sir in View of the excitement about the sprayed grapes which have been considered by the authorities in new York and other cities i have bad some tests made Here to Settle the matter a to the danger from such fruit As food. As you know we have had remarkable results in the use of sulphate of Copper in the destruction of mildew and rot on the grape. When i first Learned of the trouble in new York i had the grapes picked from those vines showing the most marked results from spraying and took them to or. Goeas Mana . Two kinds were selected and separate teats made. And in the words of or Goessmann a these varieties Litta and Vergennes were found to be free from any Trace of Copper and yet they were sprayed during the season five times the last being about sept. I another lot of concorde from the Large Vineyard was gathered taking those Bunches most sprayed with the Bordeaux mixture. They were found to contain 21000 of i per cent of oxide of Copper or about one Pound to 200 tons of grapes. In the first Case the Bordeaux mixture was used up to july i and the ammonia Cal Carbonate of Copper from that time to sept. I a4>ut three or four times and with actively satisfactory results As a protect Mon from mildew. This treatment has Given very marked results in Fitchburg and in Shrewsbury where we have had a series of tests goo on. The above analysis shows conclusively that even when the Bordeaux mixture is used in excess and late in the season there is no possible danger and when the Ammoniacal Carbonate of Copper is used after july i no Trace of Copper Oan to found. No excitement or craze. Reassuring reports of business Outlook by Dun amp co. New York get. 2.�?r. G. Dun amp weekly review of the Trade says the past week has brought the expected reaction in stocks with the passing of a dividend by Tho Missouri Pacific and some troubles among Western roads. But in the business of the country no reaction appears nor Are there signs of discouragement. It is also a most encouraging fact that the favourable conditions throughout the country have produced As yet no speculative excitement or craze such As often prepares the Way for Swift and disastrous reaction. The Iron markets Are distinctly stronger there is less pressure to sell and concessions Are More rare even though any Advance in prices is As vet resisted. Tobacco has risen 3 to 8 cents in the Connecticut Valley and the producers Are realizing Large profits. Sales of dry goods Are Large in the aggregate nut in Light weights far below last years. On the other hand there is Peculiar increase in Tho demand for heavy weights. Cotton goods Are a Little a of Wool at the different markets Are not 3 per less Active but print cloths Are firm. Sales cent below those of last year thus far. The business failures occurring throughout the country during Tho last seven Days As reported to r. Q. Dun amp co. And e. Russell amp co. Of the mercantile Agency number for the United states 201, and for Canada 29, or a total of 230, As compared with totals of 244 last week and 239 the week previous to Tho last. For the corresponding week of last year the figures were 197. Representing 106 failures in the United states and 31 in Canada. Tobacco Outlook. Careful estimate of production in current values. Springfield mass., oct. excitement in the Connecticut and Housatonic Valley tobacco Market is increasing in intensity. During the past to Days the Range of prices paid has advanced from 3 to 8 cents per Pound Over the prices current two weeks ago. The crop has cured in perfect shape and sales Are being made mostly at from 18 to 30 cents per Pound for the entire crop to be delivered in the bundle. One Sale at 35 cents per Pound is reported. Careful investigation indicates that the situation is much better for growers than the most sanguine have expected Aud that a further Rise in prices is probable the new England Homestead is conducting an inquiry into the actual Quantity of old Domestic Sumatra and Havana loaf now in the hands of dealers packers Aud manufacturers throughout the United its preliminary estimate indicates that the 1890 Domestic crop contains 25,-000 less cases of wrappers than Cigar manufacturers absolutely req no red during the cur rent fiscal admitting that the Supply of Sumatra Leaf in the country is almost double what it is placed at by the Trade. Tim shortage in wrappers of the present years crop is twice As Large on a most conservative estimate. The Homestead shows that the Cigar product for the year ending june 30, 1893, must be nearly 5,000,000,000 cigars exclusive of those wrapped with Havana Leaf. This produce will require 50,000,000 pounds of wrappers whereas the 1891 crop with which they must be covered cannot possibly turn out Over 30,000,000 pounds of wrappers. Hence the 1891 crop is 50,000 to 70,000 cases of wrappers less than will be absolutely required. This Means that Largo quantities of Siw Malta wrappers must be imported during the ensuing 12 months. It also Means that in order to fully Supply Tho american Market Domestic growers must next year produce 50 per cent More wrapper Leaf than they did this season. This will enable them to increase their acreage at least 25 per cent without affecting prices. The present Price of Sumatra wrappers $3 to 83.40 per Pound duty paid is equal to 75 and 85 cents per Pound for Domestic wrappers. As the Connecticut and Housatonic Valley crops run 60 per cent of Fine wrappers it is believed that the Best crops Are Worth on Tho average 30 to 35 cents per Pound and that even at this Price dealers and packers will have a margin of 25 to 50 per cent for their risks and profits. Tho Homestead intimates that if the final results of its investigation should More than Bear out these preliminary indications it will add another half million dollars to the profits of Connecticut and Housatonic Valley growers giving them fully $2,000,-000 More for this years crop than they have received for the last few years. The booming in prices has not yet struck Tho tobacco growing sections of Central new York. Pennsylvania Ohio and Wisconsin. But buyers Are quietly getting options on crops in those sections at Low prices. Onondaga and big Flats growers will take nothing less than 20 to 25 cents for the new crop. Pennsylvania growers have similar expectations but in Wisconsin the situation is quiet. Other Furni products. Dairy markets Are firm. The new England milk producers Union has succeeded in advancing the Price of milk from oct. I to May i to 37 cents per 8vs quart can delivered at Boston against 36 cents last Winter. Domestic Apple markets Are glutted owing to the warm weather but the shortage in the Supply of Choice Winter fruit becomes More marked As the season advances both at Home and abroad. So True is this that american apples have sold in London this week for $3 to $6 per barrel netting Tho growers on this Side $2 to 84.50 per barrel. The Price of the new crop of hops has been forced Down to 12va cents per Pound but the Homestead gives reasons for believing that this is an artificial depression and that growers should get Between 15 and 20 cents. Prominent among Tho reasons for an and Vance is the shortage in the Pacific coast states Washington a crop being Only half the enormous production estimated in earlier and exaggerated reports. Loads of fish at Portland. Portland me. Oct. 2.�?j. W. Trefethen reports the arrival of the Schooner Ira Kil born with 8000 pounds of cod and Haddock and the Swan with 5000 pounds of Hake. He also reports the receipt of 300 barrels of Salt Mackerel at this port for Tho week. Notes. It is reported at Chicago that the French love rim ent during the last three weeks As been quietly picking up an enormous amount of Grain and meats through its agents in this country. The orders for flour Are said to amount to 2,000,000 barrels and for Grain 25,000,000 bushels. The business failures of the United states As reported by r. G. Dun amp co. Of the mercantile Agency for the Quarter ending sept. 30, Are 2754 against. 2196 for the same Quarter of 1890. The liabilities for the 1891 Quarter amount to Over $44,000,-000, As against $35,500,000 in 1890, showing an increase for 1891 of 558 failures and nearly $9,000,000 in liabilities for the Quarter. In the nine months of the year 1891 just closed the failures in the United states number 8828, with liabilities of $136,000,000. As against 7851 failures and $100,000,000 of liabilities for the corresponding period of 1890. The supreme court of Minnesota decided thursday that dealing in Grain is unlawful and contracts void unless actual delivery is made. Col a for fall evening dress the Collar of full dress according to Clothier and furnished continues a straight us effect the ends meeting in front and rising in height to their Points the Tab Collar continuing the favorite of leaders cry treason in Indiana. Say democrats and republicans have deep Laid it their purpose to prevent nomination of National ticket. Indianapolis oct. 2.�?the important relation which Indiana has sustained to every National contest for the past 20 years and Tho pronounced feeling in both of the leading political parties that she will be a Pivotal state in 1892, have invested the coming National convention of the banners a Alliance in this City with a measure of interest which is almost without precedent in Indiana politics and the coming event is claiming Tho Lions share of attention from politicians of every degree and every party. The word has already gone out from Tho Alliance leaders that a conspiracy has been formed by members of the old parties to thwart the purposes of the convention and it is intimated that a systematic attempt is to be made to pack the local alliances throughout the state and Send delegates to the convention who will nullify its purpose. That purpose As now understood is to decide definitely whether a National ticket shall be nominated in 1892 and hence it is presumed that both of the old parties have an interest in preventing affirmative action on the proposition. Quot Send no Man As a Delegate who has not fully and freely renounced his old party affiliations is Tho instruction that has gone out from the Headquarters of to organization and the local alliances have entered upon a Campaign which will Weed out tile suspects and insure As they Hope a literal compliance with the instructions. Whether such a conspiracy exists is a matter of great doubt but if it does. It is certain that it has not been entered into by men of any standing As leaders in the two parties. The charge whether founded or unfounded. Has produced a condition that was not foreseen by those who made it for it has had an effect exactly opposite from what was intended. The local alliances arc made up of democrats and be Publ ans men who yet have some regard for their old parties and who have Allied themselves with the new movement More As an Experiment than anything else. They do not yet feel at Home in the organization for they cannot throw aside their old prejudices and affiliate with each other As freely As they could if there had not been Wido differences of opinion in the past. While those two parties constitute a majority in the alliances Tho old Greenback element is More or less represented and there As everywhere else. It is proving a disturber and disorganized. As soon As the charge of conspiracy was culminated by the Alliance leaders Tho Greenback element claimed for itself All the virtue of the organization charged their democratic and Republican associates with dishonourable purposes and inaugurated a War in nearly every local Alliance which is being waged As merely As though there had never been a Unity of purpose. The democrats naturally believed Tho charges made against individual republicans and Tho republicans Lent willing oars to those made against democrats and thus the most ungenerous suspicions have been engendered Aud Tho bitterest animosities kindled and hardly a local Alliance in the state is entirely exempt from those elements of discord. Another effect of the conspiracy charge has been to separate the members of the Alliance into factions on the question of a financial policy by bringing Tho question into discussion before its time and thus drawing a line Between the old democrats and republicans on the one Side and the Green backers on the other. The recruits recently made from the two parties Are a unit against the Fiat Money schemes of Tho old Greenback party and in so far As it is necessary to prevent such ideas from being brought into Tho convention they will act in Harmony. While Tho Green backers Are charging that their associates Are scheming to destroy the Alliance and Are engendering suspicions Between democratic Aud Republican members the latter Are waging War on the monetary schemes of the inflation lists and creating conditions i hat will prevent anything like Harmony no matter what general policy the convention May adopt. It is conceded by Many of the most intelligent leaders of the Alliance that Indiana who not exercise her legitimate influence in Tho convention for the reason that the old political prejudices Are still too Strong to admit of Hearty unanimity in the work of the new party. It is also conceded that the charge of conspiracy whether True or untrue was an egregious Blunder on Tho part of the leaders for it has excited enmities and passions which were at least dormant if not dead and which it was the policy of the Alliance never to revive. Tho fact is that Thero is very Little sympathy among the Alliance members in this state with the scheme to put a National ticket in the Field in 1892. When the Alliance was first formed its objects were in no sense political and there Are thousands of Farmers in Tho state men of intelligence and Means who Are not ready to change their views on National questions or affiliate with any party save that with which they have voted for years the Indiana Alliance sprung from a desire to organize for local advantage to secure local legislation and to protect the Farmers from the Many impositions which they have so Long Home As a class. They did not organize with a View of being either a National or a state party and of the 200,000 Farmers in the Stato less than 20,000 voted for the Peoples state ticket a year ago. When an attempt was made to secure the support of the Alliance it was denied on the ground that its members had refused to nominate a ticket Aud that which wits placed in the Quot Field As the Peoples was nominated by less than a Hundred Mem placed in the Quot Field As the Peoples was nominated by less than a Hundred members of the old Greenback party. The feeling is so pronounced against making the Alliance a distinctively National party and the local leaders Are so outspoken in this sentiment that the scheme will not receive the support of even a respectable minority of the Alliance members. And if the convention determines to place such a ticket in Tho Field it is Safe to say that it will receive support Only from tile class that nominated and voted Tor the Peoples ticket one year ago. Thero Are prominent members of Tho Alliance who believe that the leaders in other a states expect to find opposition in Indiana to the nomination of a National ticket and that tile charges of conspiracy has been made for the purpose of weakening the influence of Tho Indiana delegation in the convention when its members shall oppose Tho nomination of a ticket. The democratic Farmers especially Aro Content with existing conditions As regards National questions and will oppose any attempt to bring about complications in National affairs in Tho nomination of another ticket. There Aro no exceptions among them in this regard. They Are opposed to the Tariff policy of the present administration and Are convinced that Tho organization of a third party in Indiana will retard rather than and Vance Tariff Reform and they do not propose to be parties to any measure that will continue the curse of Protection. The organization had accomplished much for which it was designed arid sees in the increased taxation of corporations the Relief of the Farmers As a class from the unequal burdens of taxation which have so Long existed., they Are satisfied to exert their Power in electing legislators and in dictating the Choice of county officers hut Are opposed to taking a stand in National politics that is tantamount to deserting the cause of Tariff Reform.,. Many of the Young Republican Farmers who have become converts to Tariff Reform within the past two years Are also outspoken in their opposition to a National Farmers ticket and it will be impossible to secure delegates in this state who will endorse inflation or National nominations. Find civil service reformers parties guilty of breaking Reform pledges. Buffalo n. Y., sept. 29.�?the annual meeting of the National civil service Reform league opened in Buffalo this afternoon. Among the Early arrivals was or. George William Curtis. At 4.30 of clock this afternoon there was a joint meeting of the general committee and the executive committee it was merely a private conference regarding resolutions to be submitted. At 8 o clock this evening the first Public meeting was i old at music Hall a Largo and distinguished audience being present. The annual address of president Goorge William Curtis was listened to with rapt attention and was received with much enthusiasm. He said in part Quot Tho formation of the National civil service Reform league was not As sometimes it has been pleasantly represented a whim of amiable gentlemen who had a fancy for new fashions in politics for spinning moonbeams and dipping water in a Sieve. Tho spirit of Reform is the instinct of order and Progress and As old As government. It is Tho creative instinct moving upon Tho Taco of Tho Waters Quot the passage of the Law was Tho first great Victory of Tho to years of the Reform movement. The second is tile demonstration of the Complete practicability of Reform attested by the Heads of the largest offices of administration in the country. Quot another Happy advantage of Tho Reform in this retrospect has been Tho character and efficiency of Tho National civil service commission. President Cleveland to Whoso personal interest while governor of new York Tho passage of the Reform Law in this Stato was chiefly due had demonstrated Tho sincerity of his purpose by Tho appointment of a state civil sender commission. Whose personal character and ability and unswerving Fidelity to the eau so were not Only the Earnest of the Lin Tiest Observance of the Law. But commended the reason and the essential value of Reform to Tho sound judgment of the state. As president. Or. Cleveland enlarged Tho Range of the Classi fled service revised and strengthened the rules of the commission and sustained it in the firm enforcement of the Law. A a president Harrison a selection of civil service commissioners also was in strict conformity to Tho spirit of the platform upon which he was elected and to his own professions Aud pledges As a candidate Ana Liq also has extended somewhat the classified service. Quot i am speaking Only of the Fidelity of the three presidents to the commission. The league has pronounced its judgment upon the conduct of each of the administrations Sinco Tho passage of the Law Iii regard to civil service Reform in general. Quot Tho moral obligation of i Nave said is not limited to Hie classified service. If its principles Aro sound they Are As applicable to Public offices employing 49 clerks As to those employing 50, and an administration which observes the letter of the Law in appointing Tho 50, but makes spoils of Tho 49 is not a civil service Reform administration As a Man who gets drunk occasionally is not a temperate Man. Quot when therefore the assistant postmaster general endeared himself to the chief administration agent of spoils in new York by cutting off official Heads As fast As possible to violated the express pledge of los party to respect the spirit of Reform As much As if boing a Soldier of the Union ii had broken the orders of the March and disgraced his Flag and the president by tolerating such riot of contempt for his own professions and for the promises of his party made All such promises contemptible and forfeited the claim of his administration to be considered a Reform administration. Keeping one pledge does not condone breaking another. A party like a Man is certainly not bound to make a Promise. But if it promises and Breaks the pledge although a party is an elusive entity a vote is not and punishment is possible. Quot still another Victory is the fact that the system of party assessments on the civil service and the Kindred evil of the interference of office holders in elections Are now so effectually stigmatized by Public opinion Itiat although not abandoned they have become disgraceful. The Effort to justify the levying of blackmail by party committees of Congress or of local districts and to defend the moral coercion of Public employees by irresponsible officers of the government has disappeared in Tho contemptuous scorn of Public common sense. Undoubtedly the practice Iii some degree still Coutin us As the into disgraceful letter of the Ohio Republican state executive committee shows but Only As sneak thieving Aud pocket picking continue after Laws Are enacted to prevent them. Quot in the state convention of the admin Traylon party tiffs year in now York Waltero in other years i have seen the collector of the port of new York in person openly directing the votes of his subordinates the office holding Force again appeared and the chief figure in the convention of the party whose National platform demands that Tho Reform shall to extended to every Branch of Tho service and its spirit observed in every appoint ment was that chief state agent of spoils who gaily proclaims that Public officers endear themselves to him not by Fidelity or efficiency but by violation of their party pledges and by making Tho Public service party plunder. The comedy of the autumn Campaign is that the platform of a convention directed by the chief administration spoils Man in tile state reaffirms the affection of Tho party for a thorough genuine civil service the special committee appointed to inquire into Tim condition of the Federal civil service and the operation of Tho Reform Laws have completed their report. The signers of the same wore William Dudley Foulke Charles j. Bonaparte Richard h. Dana Wayne Macveagh Sherman s. Rogers. Quotations follow Quot of the Promise of Tho Republican platform had any significance at All it meant that the president would extend this competitive system to the clerks of the census Bureau when that Bureau should be established. Quot the Well known opinions of or. Porter who was selected by Tho president to administer this office made it certain that these appointments would become in great measure matters of political patronage. Quot the great mass of officials clerks supervisors and enumerators came from the Republican party. Whatever Tho motive was such a line of conduct was sure to discredit the result. Quot your committee consider that the following propositions have Boon established by the results of their inquiries Quot i. That Tho refusal to apply Tho civil service Reform system of open non partisan competitive examinations in appointments to the clerical Force of the census Bureau was violation by the president of a Promise contained Iii Tho Republican platform in 1888, and endorsed in his letter of acceptance. "2. That by Tho appointment of enumerators on political grounds in open violation of Section 5 of Tho census act great numbers of incompetent men have been engaged in taking the census and that in Many places attempts have been Mado to use official positions for Tho Benefit of Tho party in Power. "3. That while in some places the results of the work appear to be free from partisan color and to be accurately and Well done yet in Many places Tho work has been carelessly and badly done and is open to the suspicion that partisan considerations have not been absent and that finally there is a wide spread distrust of tile accuracy of Tho census which greatly impairs its value to Tho country and which is caused in great measure by the fact that tile census Bureau Bas been conducted udoh the spoils system. Quot your committee desires to express it belief that no census will hereafter receive Tho Confidence of Tho people until it has been wholly removed from partisan influences and they Trust that in Tho future such successful examples As have already been made of the Merit system will be followed in All Federal Gen. Raum again. that his resignation is in the presidents hands. Washington. Oct. 2.�?it is regarded As certain now that Gen. Rauzi commissioner of pensions will have to go. In lie general left last night for Chicago and it is said placed his resignation in tile hands of the president before leaving. It cannot be positively stated that this Rumor is True and that Gen. Raum is no longer commissioner of pensions As All information at the White House is withheld Ami Raum apparently has no one Here in his Confidence who is qualified to speak for him. But oven if lie has not yet resigned that action it is believed cannot he much longer delayed although it is probable that Tho Public announcement of that fact May not be nude until after Tho elections next month and in any event it is not believed that the new commissioner will be appointed until november for political reasons the president does not care to make an appointment now As lie thinks it might be ant to have some effect on Republican Success in the close states. Dissatisfied democrats. Hartford. Conn., oct. 3.�?owing to the dissatisfaction Felt by Many of Tho local democrats Over the leaving off of William Cotter a name As democratic registrar of voters from hic democratic ticket nominated last night a number of democrats met this morning and formed what they styled Tho Quot Independent democratic party Aud endorsing the National and state dem Cratie platforms nominated a ticket for the coming town elections. This ticket was the same As the one nominated last night except for the insertion of Cotter a name As dead. Ignominious end of one who aimed High. Shot himself on Tho grave of his distress Iii of a Brave officer whose vanity was Euin. By , sept. 30. A Gen. Boulanger committed suicide today Over Tho grave of hts mistress mine. De Bonne main in Tho cemetery of idol los. For some time past he has been gloomy find nervous though not betraying his intentions to friends. Ile evidently was conscious of the desertion of political friends and Tho death of his mistress from consumption july 17 preyed upon his mind. Today at la o clock to drove with his Niece and Secretary in an open Carriage to the cemetery entering alone As was his cast it a the Carriage remain outside the Gates. Ile is said to Liao been seen by an attendant kneeling at the grave apparently deeply affected by sorrowful recollections. A half hour elapsed before Tho attendant approached when to his Surprise he found the general lying dead upon the ground with a revolver clenched in his right hand. A Hasty examination showed that to had placed the weapon to his right ear and fired the fatal shot. Tho body was removed to Bis late Resi Donee around which a crowd of people soon congregated a sensation having been earned by the news of his tragic death. All Tho property and documents of the general wore placed in sealed receptacles by Tho magistrates. Mine. De Bonne main accompanied him to England after his flight from France and Early in july last she was dangerously sick in Brussels suffering from consumption from which she finally died. Cen. Boulanger. Mum. De Bonne main at Tho height of Gen. Boulanger s career two or three years ago lived in the Rue de Berri. Pans whore she was continually visited by the general. Mae. Boulanger was informed of these facts but refused to apply for a divorce. It was greatly through mme. De Bonne Mains favor that Gen. Boulanger was Able to carry on his political intrigues for she had inherited a Fortune of $1,500,000. All of which sum she devoted to the cause of the then popular Leader. To such an extent did Gen. Boulanger carry his infatuation for mme. Bonne main that whim the Fronch government determined to arrest him _ p Martyr before the Fronch people by going to jail preferring to Fly with his mistress to could not to persuaded to pose As a my in x froth France to England and eventually to Brussels. The members of the patriotic league Are talking of a Public funeral for the general and they propose to inter his remains in France. It is believed that such action will Lead to serious disturbances. George Ernest Boulanger was born in Rennes Brittany in 1837, the son of Ai. At Torney who had All Hie fire of a French Soldier his Mother being English and was educated at St. L or. From the moment he left the military school this desire to draw Public attention to himself appeared. To asked for a commission not in a regiment of infantry of the line but in Tho algerian Tirail Leurs. In France his uniform might simply attract attention but Iii Africa to would Havo a Chance to distinguish himself. The War in Italy a year later brought Lff i into prominence. Brave to rashness always at the head of ids men in Tho lace of danger lie escaped where ten others would have been killed. His Good Fortune favored him even in his wounds. A Ball passed completely through his body without injuring any vital Organ. Ills services won or him Tho office of Captain instructor in the military school. This position procured for him on the very Day id the declaration of Tho War with Prussia the Paulet of major. Ile was then Only 32, the age when other officers begin to Hope for a captains commission. The siege of Paris enabled him in four months to mount four of the highest Steps of the military Hierarchy and of the legion of Honor. To was successively promoted lieutenant colonel colonel and finally commander of the legion of Honor. When Boulanger became a general he threw off All constraint and gave full and free scope to ins aspirations. Ile unmasked the politician ready to do anything to carry out his purpose and in a few months let Tho leaders know that there had come among them another Man with whom it would to necessary to reckon in the future. Gen. Boulanger first came into Especial prominence in 1886. In january of that year the freycinet ministry Cacao into Power and the prime minister to please m. Clemenceau Tho Leader of Tho Radical party put Boulanger in charge of the War portfolio. Boulanger was a member of the patriotic league a society that was founded about 1878 by an enthusiastic Young poet. M. Paul Dor Ouieda who had risen to Fame by Means of some songs extolling French patriotism and demanding revenge against Germany. As War minister Boulanger immediately began to increase the expense of his depart menu organizing and drilling troops and renewing their accoutrements As though for some impending use of Tho army. Moon rumours of a possible War with Germany began to fill the air. M. Goblet in forming the next Cabinet retained Boulanger As Secretary of War in deference to his great popularity. M. Rouvier who succeeded to the premiership absolutely excluded Gen. Boulanger from the ministry in spite of the popular demand that was aroused for his retention. He was forced however by the clamor in its behalf aroused by Tho league to adopt Boulanger a military Bill calling for an appropriation for Tho army above running expenses of Over $37,000,000. The adherents of Boulanger continued to Laud their idol As a second Napoleon Bonaparte the coming hero and the Many a vanity became so inflated that he declared Iii Confidence to a newspaper Man who he knew would make it Public that lie had twice been urged to overthrow tile Republic and declare himself dictator once by 04 generals and once by the monarchists but had virtuously rejected the temptations. The War office assigned him to a Post and to prevent his inter meddling in polities refused to give him permission to leave it to visit Baris. To continued his visits however in stealth and in disguise but when Thisbe Cate known he was deprived of his command for his disobedience. Boulanger then took tile stand t hat lie was tile victim of political opposition resigned his commission and offered himself for election to tile chamber it deputies. He was elected by a Large majority. He immediately declared for a revision of the Constitution a dissolution of the Congress and a popular vote on the form of government. In the chamber of deputies however he proved so weak in debate that he was not As formidable As his opinions fore boded. Finally lie lost his temper beyond precedent one Day and openly insulted the Premier. For this lie was censured and directly he resigned his Premier m. Foquet then challenged him. And a sword Duel was fought in which Boulanger was wounded in Tup Throat. When be recovered however oblivious of the scorn thrown at him As a general less skilful with weapons than a Mere civilian to again offered himself As a candidate for a seat in Tho popular Assembly and was triumphantly or me Ted. This was in the summer of 1888. He then announced his determination to stand for Evora vacant seat in Tho chamber As it occurred intending by tins Means to secure a plebiscite or general popular endorsement in his favor. Under the then existing French Law of elections the scrutiny de list a candidate residing in Paris or anywhere else might stand for the seat of any District in the country or for All of them if he wished to do so. Alter scouring several suits Boulanger stolid for one in Baris. He was elected by an enormous majority. Apparently this Triumph Laid All Franco at lits fort. Ami the dictatorship for which to was thought to he striving seemed to be almost within his grasp a vote against tie premieres plan for revising the Constitution two weeks before had thrown out the ministry of m. Foquet. Tiffs seemed to pave Tho Way for Boulanger a revision scheme and All Franco wafted to see him Tako advantage of Tho situation. In the chamber of deputies however. Boutian Gist was not As popular As it was with Tho Public. A ministry was formed after considerable difficulty by a coalition of Tho opportunists and the republicans with a Girard at its Bead. Of United on no other question they were in full Accord in opposition to Boula Gisin their first move was a Clover one. It was to order Tho suppression of the patriotic league under a Law of the Republic against secret societies. Franco and the outside world now looked to see Boulanger achieve the Summit of his ambition in the character of a Champion of popular Liberty but again comes the unexpected. And All that rewarded the waiting vision was a dissolving View Al Tbs hero fleeing across Tho Border into Belgium. The funeral. Brussels oct. 3.�?the funeral of Goa Boulanger took Placo today. An immense crowd of people assembled hours before the time fixed for Tho interment ceremonies in front and about Tho late residence of Tho dead Soldier in Tho Rue Mon Toyer.

When Tercel of Massachusetts Tho continued scandals in the pension department Tho Clear a Ifong and inflation of the currency by the Issue of $4,,ois to $5,000,000 a month in Treasury notes based upon Silver which is rapidly carrying the currency to a i Silver basis Are sufficient reasons Why thinking men Independent in polities.

In the course of his address to which a Large congregation listened attentively he referred to the persecutions in Russia saying. In substance Quot on a Day like this we cannot be unmindful of Tho condition of our unfortunate Brethren who Are wandering through Tho desert of oppression in Distant lands. Quot we Are standing today we israelite All Over the world face to face with the most terrible crisis in our history. The persecutions of our Brethren in Russia have made them tremble for their own lives and the lives of those who Are dear to them. Quot millions of people for no reason except that they Are hebrews have been robbed of their possessions driven from their dwellings and thrown out from their places of business. Thousands Aro forced in misery to go Forth from their Homes and wander about exiled from then Laco of their birth banished from the Graves of their dead. Children Are born in the held where Mother and babe perish of privation and exposure. Fortunate Are those who Are Able to emigrate to another country for Refuge from the oppressor. Quot they Are fleeing before the most miserable tyrant of this Century. Quot tins spectacle has tilled the hearts of Tho people of other nations with horror. It is a spectacle which this age of our civilization ought never to have witnessed. To however. One thing is certain. The Day of judgment Conics for despots and those who do their bidding. A Many hebrews May die hundreds May perish out to the jews As a race no enduring harm will come. The jews will outlive the hour of their William e. Russell. Your Only glory there is the fact that a Republican Council has embarrassed the democratic governor if that is All Tho use that this last relic of British Rule in Massachusetts is in our system let us Send it to Tho old lumber room. It was instituted at a Limo when every governor was a stranger appointed by an English King and was thrown across his path to prevent Tim abuse of his Power. The governor thou represented a foreign King the Council represented the people. Now the governor come direct from Tho people Overy year and is directly responsible to them. Tho Power of removal should Rost solely with him. When the Republican drummers Are look ing into their bags of samples they will be sure to drop into the bag labelled Quot issues not to be offered tiffs Trio their proposed attack upon the governor. Their Stock at Liest is a a Job Jot a and this is tile poorest Sample of All. Hon. John e. Russell of i Bicester nominated gov. Russell Iii a ringing address cratic members of the legislature in sup t to give the governor the full Power of removal. Porting a Bill we commend Tho courageous efforts of the governor to raise the Standard of official conduct notwithstanding the partisan opposition of the Republican majority of the Council. We denounce the rejection by the Council purely for the purpose of keeping Republican incumbents in office of fit appointments made by the governor. We protest against Tim unfair division of the councillor districts made by the Republican l Ai to which makes possible the elec Hon of a Council that grossly misrepresent tile political convictions of the people. We believe in free schools supplied with free text books. Our system of Public education is dear to the hearts of All our people a sacred Trust to he most jealously guarded. We denounce Tho attempt to drag it into the Arena of politics at this time As a wicked device of unscrupulous partisanship to raise a false Issue on a subject in regard to which All the people of this Commonwealth Aro United. 4\ e congratulate the people of the Commonwealth that by the action of the legislature. In amendment to the Constitution is this year submitted for adoption annul Ling that clause which requires the payment of a tax As a qualification for voting. We believe that every citizen should Par his just proportion of the Public expenses. But we do not believe that if he fails to do so by Accident the neglect of others or from his own inability he should to punished by being deprived of the most sacred right of citizenship the right to vote. We reaffirm our sympathy with All Wise and constitutional measures in the interest of manual labor. The Mckinley Tariff Bill against which the democratic party of Massachusetts protested at its last convention was repudiated at the polls by one of the most emphatic votes Over cast by a free people. We renew our demand or the repeal of All of its provisions which increase rates of duty and for the enactment of a genuine measure of Tariff Reform. We believe that All taxes upon food. Fuel fibres and ores and also upon Tho crude or partly manufactured materials necessary in the processes of our Domestic industries should to repealed. Sigourney Butler for the committee on the balance lows of Stato ticket reported As Fol kor Secretary of Stato Elbridge Cushman of Lakeville. For attorney general George m. Stearns of Chicopee.

Quincy of Quincy John la. Mcdonough of Boston and col. It alter cutting of Pittsfield Iii their absence chairman Edward Avery of Braintree Road tile resolutions with grand effect. When the resolutions had been read gov. Russell immediately came up on Tho plat Ferm. Tho cheering was wild beyond parallel in a Massachusetts convention and lasted full to minutes. Mayor Matthews of Boston nominated Hon. John w. Corcoran for lieutenant governor and or. Flynn of the governors Council seconded or. Corcoran s nomination while a tremendous Quot ave was the Echo. Or. Corcoran accepted the nomination Iii a ringing speech. After Tho convention had voted on motion of or. Hamlin of Boston authorizing the state Committer to till any vacancy which might occur on the ticket and Hearty thanks had been voted to Gen. Collins for the Able manner in which to had discharged the duties of his office the convention at 2.05 adjourned sine die. Hon. John e. Russell nothing Good to eat. Youth , luxuries All such words have different meanings in different ears and under different circumstances. When or. Seward was in Alaska says his son. The people were naturally very desirous to treat him handsomely. Some amusement was occasioned at table one Day by the remark of one of the ladies that they had been much disappointed at obtaining no beef by the last Steamer As All were looking for steaks. Quot so we can offer you nothing but the Faro of toe country. Gov. Seward a she said. Quot but that is excellent a answered he. Quot of no we have nothing but Venison and grouse Aud wild ducks and Salmon and Trout a one of the army officers remarked that this reminded him of a Mutiny among the soldiers at a Florida fort against being served with Green Turtle soup More than once a week. Give excellent reasons for the governors nomination. Hon. John e. Russell Iii nominating gov. W. E. Russell said i rejoice to see this Large gathering of Earnest representative men from every Purton the Commonwealth. Although this is the off year in politics and we have an excellent record of administration that would naturally insure the continuance of our Power it is the year preceding the quadrennial election and Tho Triumph of democracy in Massachusetts will have significant bearing Upun the presidential election. A this will stir our opponents to great exertion they Are fully alive to the importance of the election and Are displaying great activity. They have on their Side the powerful influence of Tho administration Aud Tho a Sivu co operation of ail Tho Federal officeholders. Notwithstanding these facts. I think to May fairly expect to elect our whole ticket because we Havo won the Confidence of Tho people by an honorable administration of the affairs of state we have accomplished such reforms As we could against in Adverse legislature and obstruction Council and the governor has made appointments to office to till vacancies with the greatest care and impartiality and Limiter every form of partisan opposition and criticism he has shown Good temper and patience. L he same questions Are before the people that Wero discussed All Over Tho country last year resulting in a political revolution unparalleled in our history. We appealed to Tho people against the administration and Congress their answer was an overwhelming vote of want of Confidence and disapprobation of legislation part of which was still pending. In nearly All the states great changes were made in our favor. A decent regard for Public opinion so clearly expressed would have altered the temper and course of the administration but it was without effect. The subsequent session of Ltd engross was chiefly employed Iii strengthening and riveting obnoxious and condemned legislation Aud in extravagant appropriations. The contempt for the spirit of civil service Reform manifested in Overy department of Tho administration the selfish greed of the protectionists not Only in the Law but in the forced construction of it the injury that is being worked to the in urns affording genuine Protection alike to the workingmen and the manufacturers of our Commonwealth. Five of the Republican congressmen from this state whom we condemned last year for their surrender of Hie business interests of now England in order to meet the exigencies of party politics have been replaced by the people with democratic members who can be trusted to uphold tile rights and guard Tho interests of their constituents. We believe that Public office is a Public Trust Aud that appointments should to made for fitness capacity and integrity and in Tho spirit of civil service Reform. The Republican administration has shown tip hypocrisy of its pretensions in favor of this Reform by destroying the efficiency of the census Bureau for the Sake of furnishing political spoils by neglecting to bring prosecutions Tor the punishment of violations of the civil service Law. By ignoring the recommendations of the civil service commission for Tho dismissal of officials who have openly defied the Law by reviving the Active participation of officeholders in partisan politics and the assessment of government employees for partisan purposes. Quot we believe in honest Money a _ and Silver coinage of the Constitution Aud in a currency convertible into such coinage without this declaration expressing Tho uniform historic policy of the National democratic party contained in its platforms of 1884 and 1888, we unreservedly reaffirm. We believe that All dollars coined by the United states should be of equal intrinsic value and that All paper currency tamed by the government should be redeemable in either Gold or Silver Coin at the option cd the Holder Aud not at the discretion of the Secretary of the Treasury. We denounce the claim of Tho Republican leaders of this state that they Are the friends of a sound currency As false and hypocritical and charge them with the sole and direct responsibility for the present dangerous condition of the currency. With firm Reliance upon the Justice of its principles the record of its aum Nistra Tion and the merits of its candidates tilt democratic party confidently appeals to the Suffrages of the voters of Tho Commonwealth. Gov. Russells speech. He reviews his opponents criticisms of Tho years administration. In his speech of acceptance. Gov. William e. Russell took up in detail every Point of criticism in his official a to and made out a Strong Case for his defence. The most serious charge was that lie had denounced the action of commissions before election and had during his year of office created five such bodies. His defence of his position will stand As a specimen of his whole excellent speech. Quot my opponent knows that my objection to commissions As expressed in my inaugural was to those a whose work is wholly executive a and which make part of the states system of administrative and executive to knows that Tho commissions mentioned Are for a different purpose that they have nothing to do with state administration that they Are ail for temporary objects and with one exception the service is entirely gratuitous. He knows that every one of them was created by an act of Tho legislature nearly if not quite unanimously passed which compelled me to make the appointments and my Only Power was to veto the act of their creation. Quot a hied one would he have me veto the one which is to plan Aud provide a proper state exhibit for the worlds fair or the one Winch is to investigate the crying demand and need of our people for better transit facilities or the one which in conference with other states is to consider the question of uniform legislation on matters of marriage divorce etc.? or the one which is to investigate the subject of manual training in the Hope of advancing the cause of labor and increasing the influence and value of our Public schools or the one which is to investigate How Best the Charles River Basin can be improved for the Benefit of ail oar people for such criticism from a party a apparent Leader which magnifies Little things purposely withholds necessary facts knowingly distorts an of Lon anti a position i Ain profoundly grateful. To is More significant As an endorsement because of to Laboured Effort than the confession that comes from silence or the pleasant compliments that Mark a courteous and generous antagonist. Now let satan resign and win Praise. Mrs. Greathead what kept you so late at that meeting or. Greathead i had to draw up a Long Sot of resolutions for publication complimenting or. Bullhead a great efficiency As a member of Tho Board and expressing our Heartfelt regret at losing his invaluable Aid and counsel. Quot of All things Why.
