In it ho will call attention to tho
almost forgotten fact that during
tho St. Louts convention n caucus
of "niiddle-of-tlic-road" delegates,
representing twenty-one states, was
held. At this caucus tho delegates
agreed to nominate Norton of Illinois
for President and Blrkett of Missis

would have made Bryan's defeat ab
solutely certain, but when Watson
telegraphed a message saying that ho
"was willing to accept second plnca on
the ticket with Hrynn, the mfddle-of-thq-road
men, believing that Demo

frenchmen Hall tho Ct With Great Kn
PAltis, Oct 7. During the last two
days 05,000 people arrived by tho
Northern rail way, .P-'.OOD by tho West
ern railway, CO.OOO by tho Orleans
line, 47,000 by tho Lyons railway nud
135,1)00 by tho Eastern line. So great
was the rush for food at the various
restaurants about the railway sta
tions that steaks and chops alone
were loft. Tho price of meat has
gono up within the last few days, but
this only applies to choice cuts, such
as people en fete order for frlonda
Ilread remains at the samo price as
before, but tho consumption lias in
creased. Of tho peoplo who arrlvo
from tho country by excursion trains, '
a very largo proportion of thoin bring
their own provlslona Urcat baskets
of eatables are brought to Paris by i
provident fathers of families.
Thousands of these people remained
all night along the route of tho pro- i
cession in honor of tho czar and
czarina, nnd thousands more were
added to them nt daylight this morn
ing, while by 10 o'clock, when tho itur
perial train arrived at tho Ranelagh
station, it was utterly Impossible to
even estimate tho number of peoplo on
the route from tho railroad depot to .
the Russian embassy. A double Una
of troops held tho route from tho rail
road depot to tho embassy from short
ly after 7 o'clock, and tho soldiers
wero reinforced bylinesof gendarmes,
sergeants do vllle and detectives, the
lnttor including a number of agents of
the Russian secret polico and picked
men from the Nihilist detectlvo corps,
but theso were apparently not needea,
for tho crowds wero very orderly.
Tho decorations eclipsed anything
ever soon In tho French capital. Rus
sluu and French Hags entwined or
flouting side by side predominated,
but the trees, balconies, roofs, lamp
posts, statues and almost everything
else was utilized in tho decorative
effects planned to impicss tho czar
with the enthusiasm of France. The
trees were thickly covered with arti
ficial leaves and flowers representing;
peach, almond and other blossoms.
Restoral columns, forty feet high,
painted to imitate stone and sur
mounted by Russian double-headed
eagles, each six feet high, and sup
porting inperial crowns, lined the
Champs Elysees. The Place de l'Hotel
do Villo was most brilliant with Vene
tian masts and eolonades decked with
paper flowers and tho Tullerics gar
dens were beautified with flags and
Tho arrival of the distinguished
travelers was signalled to the expect
ant throngs by u fanfare of trumpets,
lifter which there was n long roll from
the drum corps, the guard of honor
presented arms and the troops were
called to attention from one end of
tho route to the other, causing tho
crowds to begin cheering from tho
depot to tho embassy. About the sta
tion the nir was rent with roars of
'Vive lo Tsar," "Vive PEmpereur,"
"Vivo la Republlque," and hats,
sticks, umbrellas, handkerchiefs, eta,
wero waved wildly in tho air.
Their Majesties and President
Faure and their suites entered the
gorgeous state carriages in waiting
and tho state entry was begun.
Roar after roar arose from the mul
titudes. The cortege passed the Aro
de Trlorapho and was wildly cheered
by the immense crowds filling tho
avenues surrounding it, Descending
the Champs Elysees there was one con
tinuous roar of welcoming cries amid
which "Vivo l'Empereur;" "Vive la
Republique,""V-c la President" wore
tho inoL distinguishable. The crowds
.'oi-iuei1 t -ivmultuously waving sea of
V-.uxa and arms, ctc. held back by the
long lilies of troops whoso bayonets
or swords reflected tne sunlight.
The president, after reaching the
Russian embassy, remained with their
Majesties for a quarter of an hour,
during which the czar expressed to
him how deeply he and the czarina
were uffected by tho heartiness of tho

A Scntlilnc Interview.
Nkw Yoih:, Oct. G. -Tho World
prints an lntcrvlow with Watson,
Populist candidate for vico president,
In which ho says: "I'd lay my hoad on
tho block heforo I'd retire from tho
race and mako way for a plutocrat, a
bondholder, a national banker and
protectionist like Mr. Sewall. If Mr.
bowall is willing to get off the ticket,
I bcllovo that even now thoro is
chanco to elect Mr. llryan. Mr. llryan
and I cou'd at once mako a tour to
gether, and insido of ten days we
lulght restore thousands of votes."
Mr. Watson declares that Chairman
Butler of the Populist national com
mittee ask of! to sea tho notes of tho
first speech he was to deliver, and,
coming to tho attack on Mr. Sowall,
begged htm to omit it Thereupon
-Watson threatened to abandon tbo
stump and llutlcr relented.
Of Kansas in particular Mr. Watson
said: "Even if Mr. Sewall should per
sist in threatening Mr. ISryan'a can
didacy by remaining on tho ticket, I
would consent to fusion in some of
the States If It were offered on a basis
titat was not absolutely lusultlng to
tho Populist cause. Iu Kansas tho
Populists havo no representation
whatever on tho Presidential ticket.
They havo given all the electors to
the Democrats in exchange for tho
State ticket. In view of the fact that
the Populists of Kansas havo four
times as many voles as tho Demo
crats, they ought to have seven elect
ors out of the ten. I would not bo
satisfied with less. In Colorado tho
Populists should havo three cut of
four. In North Carolina the Demo
crats havo as many electors as tho
Populists think of it and one elector
is giyen to a thing colled free silver.
I don't want to say what tho real
basis of fusion ought to be in North
Carolina, because that is Senator But
ler's State, but it- ought to bo some
thing moru consistent with the power
and dignity of the majority party
"When I went to Kansas to speak
I was mot by tho Populist stato chair
man, Mr. Ureidenthal, who told mo
that the party had already arranged
a fusion and begged mo not to make
any more trouble. I told him that I
would speak at the mass meeting
which had beon called. Then he
asked me If I would let him aoe my
speech. I did a thing which I had
never done before and have never
dono since. I read him rav notes.
When I camo to the part which de
nounced Sowall as an enemy of our
cause and of our principles, Mr.
Ureidenthal pleaded with me to omit
It Of course I refused to do it. 'Am
I not tho nominee of tho party'." I
asked him; 'Did you not yourself Voto
to mako me the candidate for the Vico
Presidency?' Still ho insisted that I
should not attack tho millionaire can
didate. 'Vcrv well,' I said, "I will tako
my hat and grin and go back to Geor
gia. At that he relented, nnd I made
my speech. Tho crowd went wild,
and at the close of my remarks thoro
was a tremendous rush for the plat
form. At the next plnce I spoke in
Kansas I hud tho same trouble to face.
The committee said that everything
had been nicely arranged and that I
ought not to disturb the plan. I in
sisted on doing my duty to my party
and spoke boldly to tte people. Thero
was another great popular demonstra
tion arfd u rush to tho platform.
Again I spoko in Kansas. There was
no one to meet me at tho railroad sta
tion, although tho time of my arrival
Was known. I rodo to the hotel in a
public cab with a colored man who
appeared to bo going in the sarao
direction. That is the way the Popu
list managers havo treated the candi
date nominated by their national con
vention." ACCEPTANCE NO. a

Gentlemen: The nomination of the

"It is a cause for congratulation
that we have iu this campaign not
only the support of Democrats, Popu

of Jthose Democrats, who, havinghere to

trust the destiny of tho nation to

lusive hope of foreign aid while they

the settlement of the details of any
plan of co-operation between distinct
political organizations, 1 am sure that
the advocate of bimetallism are so
intensely in earnest that they will bo

charity towards the opinion of others

swept Into tho little town of Shur
burne, fourteen mllos from here, yos
torday, dashed Into tho Hank of
Shorburno, murdored tho enshior, a
bystander, and securing 81,000 from
tho cash tray, mounted their wheels
nnd escaped before tho eyes of tho
startled villagers.
Tho affair wos conducted with nil
tho bravado of ,ho border drama, and
the killing of tho two men, ono of
whom died instantly, was purely wan
ton, as uolthor mado any roslstencc.
Tho persons killed wero: .1. A. Oor
stcrn, traveling agent of tho Walter
A. Wood Harvester company, shot
through thu heart
Cashier Thorburu of tho Hank of
Sherburne, shot In the head.
Tho crime is paralleled only by the
raid of desso James and thu Younger
boys, when thoy swooped down upon
the little town of Northfiold, a few
miles north of tho scene of yester
day's crime, shot thu cashier of tho

money. In that instance tho robbers
departed on horses, whoroasyosterday
the criminals, in keeping with tho
times, used bicyules in escaping from
tho enragud citizens of Sherburne-
At about 1:30 o'clock two masked
men walked through the front en
trance of the bank to the cashier's
box and, without a word, whipped
out their revolvers and leveled them
at Cashier Thorbum. Tho latter did
nut move, but tho next minute tho re
port of two revolvers rang out and
Cashier Thorburu fell at his dosk.
At another desk in tho bank Blood
Oerstern, a traveling man. He was
the only Immediate bar to tho ends to
which the rubbers sought to gain, and
ns Thorbum fell to tho floor they
turned and shot him dead.
As quickly as posslblo thoy leaped
over tho railing and secured 81,000 in
cash. Thoy then ran for tho back
door of tho bank, where thoy had
taken tho precaution to loavo their
bicycles, mounted them and rode
away. It all happened insido of two
minutes, and the only wltucss to tho
deed was a woman who stood across
tho street from tho frout entrance of
tlie bank, und who was attracted by
tho report of tho revolvers. She saw
them turn on Oerstern, secure tho
money and decamp.
She gavo tho alarm and in flvo min
utes after tho deed had been commit
ted tho llltlo town of Shorburno was
in a state of excltoment such ns has
never before been Been there.
Thornburn, It was found, was not

shot through tho heart, and hod ap
parently beon Instantly killed.
Thornburn lived two hours, having
' leecived bullets in sovcral different
parts of his body.
I Tho town of Shorburno contains
1 scarcely moro than 300 Inhabitants,
but inside of ten minutes several
posses had beon formed, including
nearly every male citizen of the town,
and a search was at once instituted.

however, that Atkinson has carried,
tho stato by nt least 2&,o0o, and tho re

The effect of this Republican move,
however, was to scaro tho Populists
back into tho Democratic ranks. Tho
gold standard Democrats also took
aotlvo part In helping tho Populists as
a meanB of injuring tho regular Dem
ocrats. A. S. Clay, chairman of tho Stato
Democratic executive committee, says:
"Wo havo carried tho Stato by be
tween 5,000 and 00,000 majority. The
Populists havo not carried twenty
counties out of tho 147 in tho State,
and thoy havo lost many of tho coun- -ties
they carried In lRJl."
Ex-Seerotary of tho Interior Hoko
Smith ife,'d: "Tho contest in Georgia
was over tho question of local govern
ment. Rational Issues did not enter
into it, Uovcrnpr Atkinson won tho
confidence of tho negro voto by his
Impartial administration, and the
largo majority of them supported him
at tho polls."
A. E. lluclc, chairman of tho Stato
Republican committee, said: "Atkin

Washington, Oct. 0. Advices from
Venezuela wore received at tho State

caused a mild sensation. Copies of
tho Domorara papers containing ac
counts of recont action taken by the
Colonial government of Ilrltish
(luiana in defiance of tho understand
ing existing between the United
States nnd Great I'ritain wero in to
day's mail. Ono of tho papers con
tains a five-column account of tho
granting of a franchise for building a
railroad along the Kitutna river to
tho Haritna gold fields. The road will
run into the territory not only beyond
the Sehomburgk line, but even beyond
the territory to which Groat Ilrltain
has heretoforo laid claim on tlio
ground that it was settled by her
The account in tho Domcrara paper
states that the franchise was rushed
through, not even the time required,
by thq constitution being occupied in
its consideration. Nearly all tho pa
pers, soma of them government or
gans, criticise tho proceedings ad
versely nnd say they fear it will com
plicate tho Venezuelan controversy to
no little extent.
It Is expected that the Venezuelan
legation will havo official information
auout the matter to-morrow ana will
convey it to Secretary Olney, who
will doubtless wlthoutdelay call upon
Lord Salisbury for un explanation of
this violation of the understanding
now existing between this country
and Great Ilrltain. Tho Harima gold
fields, which tho nllroad Is to ba
built to reach, aro said to bo the
