had pictured Wratz.i as a very fortress of

Talking Tor the Anarchists.

argument ( Ids morning on the motion for anew
now trial for the anarchists. Ho contended
thut the evidence Introduced by the state as
to the discovery of dynamlto'-bombs In va
rious portions of the city was Irregular and
t-hould not have been introduced In ( bis case
to the piejudlcc of the defendants. He also
argued that the testimony of the witness
( illiner should havi ) I wen discredited ,
Inidiam made the ojienlng speech for the
state. Ho said the most seilous contention
Hindu on HIP motion for a new trial relates
to the empanelling of a jury. Ho said thnt
the local conclusion uf the proposition of the
defense was that while an offender , guilty
ot a misdemeanor which did not appeal to
thopii'Judieesof the jury , could bo brought
to jitslleeaml punished , a criminal guilty of
a crime iniiurulcllcd In the diabolism of his
acts and his teachings secures Ins safety.

Davlil II. Hill Talks on National Af

Nr.w YonK , Oct. C. [ Snfcltil Telogiam to
the BEE.J The World this morning prints a
long Interview with Governor Hill. During
the Interview Governor Hill discussed gen
erally the national administration , without
entering Into personalities. Ho felt that no
one man was necessary to the success of any
party. The party lt clf was the best guar
anty for the carrying out of its principles.
The great masses of the party after election
did not desire ollice. All they had sought
to secure wns n change of administration In
the Interest of good government
The governor was asked what lie thought
vonld bo the principal Issue In the coming

He replied : "I think that the question of

ompliCAled one. I am moie in sympathy
vltli the expression of the Ohio state plat-
orm of l bil upon this subject than 1 am vv ith

The governor said , In speaking of the
changes which weio taking place In the fed-
tal ofllecs of the country , that

o the Ben. I The drift of events to-day
hews that while both of the worrying fne-
ions ot the American board arc ready for a
ighton the subject of future probation they
are a little reluctant to begin. Each side
lecms disposed to out off the contest as long
is possible , for there w.i3 a manifest purpose
o-day to light shy of the subject , though
here was a very deep undercurron t of feel-
ngs on both sides. The A ml over men are
very much in earnest In their deslro to have
ho question brought to a focus at once. They
say It is nn outrage to keep devoted mis
sionaries fiom their field of labor on
iccount of a mere difference of theological
opinion. Tim old school men , on the other
mud , \eiyseveio in their tenacity for
what they call the established doctrines of
the church , someof them do not hesitate to
call the Andover men traitors , and say that
f Newman Smyth and his followers want to
start n new missionary they can do so , but
they ought not to stay In the old fold and at
tempt to overthrow Its established policy.
The feeling to-night Is very Intense , nnd nn
outbieak Is looked for to-morrow. The sen
timent of the audience generally seems to bo
witli the old school teachers. Many , who ,
moro or less , agree with the Andover men.
arc afraid of a pchlsru , and so they try to
avoid becoming subject to n crisis. They are
in favorof dodging an open debate , and post
poning. If possible , the rising of the vexed
question. Dr. Sturdcvant , of Cleveland , O. ,
when speaking extemporaneously to-night
upon the subject of mission woik , urged the
importance ot unity and harmony in the body
of ChiKst and he remaiked significantly and
impressively , "God grant that there bo no
schism of the body. " The remark was greeted
witn loud applause. It is believed to-night
that when the leport of the committee ou the
annual report ot the whole committee is
broueht up , which will probablj be tomorrow
row , the explosion will come , if any Is to
come , as that prudential committee is the one refused to end Mr. Hume back to his
India station , when they found that he
lieved in future probation of heathen.

nual report , of which the following is n
synopsis :
During the year the law regarding the dis-
franchiseinent of polygamists and those
living In unlawful cohabitation has been
fully and successfully enforced. All such
pcr.sons , with very few. If any exceptions ,
have boon excluded from voting and holding
olllccs. A Inrge number havn been fined and
Imprisoned in the penitentiary for polygamy
or unlawful cohabitation , chiefly for the lat
ter offense. It is reported and
believed by many non-resident Mor
mons , that during the year a largo
number of polygamous marriages have taken
place. Whether , ii | > on the whole , polvga-
mous marriages are on the decrease In Utah
Is .a matter on which different opinions are
expressed , but undoubtedly inanv have been
restrained by feiir of dlstranchisement nnd
the penitentiary ; and.vve think it is safe to
say that In the more enlightened portions of
the territory very few polygamous marriages
have occurred within ijie last year.
Referring to jrie joifat resolution novvpend-
Ingin both nouscspf poniress proposing an
amendment to the constitution of the United
States prohlbitiug'anU' punishing polygamy
in all of thn slatoVf and territories , ex
tending the judicial ; power ot thu federal
government tq thii . prosecution of such
offenses , the rcpoisah | < : "While wo re of
the opinion thar. tt > U 'sliould not supersede
other measures ; wdafc satisfied it would be
nn eflicient factor In 'effecting the desired
result. " _ J
The report calls aiteJitlon to the magnitude
of the evil by say In * that there are more than
JOO.OOO Mormons In Iho. woild , the large ma
jority of whom live Ir ) Utah , and that while
only a portion of them practice
- - ' ; amy. they , all believe In It as
a dlvino revelation. "Tne only Immediately
effective remedy. " the report says , "would be
the use of the inllltnry\ but thai a sense of
modern civilization will not permit the em
ployment of bayonets against women ami
children. If the present laws of the pro
posed constitutional amendment aie not suf
ficient to suppress the evil , moie strlngenl
enactments must be adopted , and the resuli
will bo that , at no distant day , this relic ot
Asiatic baibarism , this blot on the fair fame
of America , will be swept from the land. "

ST. Louis O.-t 0. No cause has been as-
MKncd as yet for the explosion last evening
of the boiler of the rlvor steamer La Mascotte ,
which caused such loss of life. The boat Is
said to have been steaming along under 150
pounds of steam , her usual amount to carry ,
when the explosion suddenly occurred , blow-
ng the lire In every direction. The utmost
eonfu lon prevailed. The pilot taking advantage -
vantage of her heading turned her towards
the shore , but the flames caused lilm to aban
don his post before the staze plunk could
be lowered. After leavinc his post the cur
rent turned the boat's bow out into the river
neain , and her stern swung close to the
bank , which nlTordcd meanV of escape for
several who weie nt that cud of the boat , the
pilot and one cabin boy setting ashore with
out any Injuries or even wet leet The stage
plank was lowered anil many were placed
upon It , mostly women and chlldien , v\ho
would have been saved had not
the smoke > tack fallen squarely across
It and all who were not killed by it were
drowned. Captain Thompson , after doing
all In his power to Rave the passengers ami
crow jumped orcrlioaid and swam a hore.
the boat having bv tub time drifted tully ' -00
yards out in the river. La Mnscolto dr.fti'd
over to the Illinois shore opposite Wlllard's
Landing , and sunk , the only thing vl-lblo at
present being her wheel.
Low Brahan. second clerk , tells the follow
ing story of the disaster : * ' \ \ o had landed
at Nfeley's and were pulling out , and I
walked un the sulrs anil Into my room when
I heard a small explosion like that of a sky
rocket ; I opened the door to the eabln and
saw s'cam comlnp Into It from the barber
shop. I saw Indies In their cabin and called
them to come forward. I saw liio coming
Iroin under the boiler deck , and 1 took the
ladies forward to the boiler deek and started
down stairs where the pilot , Geaveau.
gave live preservers to them , telling them nil
to put them on immediately , 1 ordcied the
stage plunk thrown overboard which was
promptly done and wo put all the ladies on
the plank. The rleglnir became detached
and the plank swung out. Mrs. M. Selmcrs
jumped Into my anus , i landed heron the
blase while 1 was thrown into the river my-
selt. I swam along : the. Mdo or thn stacc and
made the men get off so it would bear up the
ladies. I then swam to the cdtro of the rooks
and crawled ashoie. A man from the Illin
ois side with a sKitf took people oil Ue- , toRO
and also saved n number that were"sH'jm-
mine. I don't recollect the skilfnmn's
name , but ho did some noble work. "
( ! . J. llanlon , second pilot , . /Jayrt : "The
Kairlo wa ? near us Wien | 'the
di sister occurred and eotild easily
have pushed ns ashore without milch trouble
and dan 'or , but 1 nuderrtand the captain did
not care to render any assistance. Adolphus
Evelyn , the pilot of the Eagle , told mn that ;
the captain ordered him not to KO near the
.Mascotte. as he did not wish to endanger his
boat. If he would only have pushed us
ashore not a single one would have been in
jured , except from scalds and burns. "

Eleven of the latter arc so horribly burned
that huge pieces of Mesh peeled
from their bodies. Six of them have
died nndlho lives of the other five dlspalred
of. There aie sixteen persons known to have

burned around the face and throat that he
will probably die. The register of passengers
was lost , and it is thought thnt Mime were
drowned or killed whose bodies have not

The Globe-Democrat's correspondent tele
graphed late to-night from Tape Clraideau
that nothing new had been developed to-day
in reaard to the explosion of the La Mascotto
and no other bodies have been found as vet.
One of the missing , John Miller , reached
here this morning In a skitr from Nelly's
Landing with his head burned , and says that
Captain Ebaugh positively refused him to
come down here on the Eagle this morning ,
so us to get here before his
wife and children were buried.
Captain Ebaugh's excuse was that it was
against the law. From Interviews with the
rescued passengers , it seems there
hope of any of the missing passengers bolnz
found alive. The wreck is now lying just
below Wlllard's Landing , with a Hutu of her
bow and several feet of her bow wheel show

The crew on the Eagle , as well as those

tain of the Easjlo for not making greater ef
forts to save the victims. Captain Thomp

New York Comment on the Care of
Chicago's Diseased Cnttlc.
NEW YOIIK. Oct 6. [ Special Telegram to
tlie BEK.J The Times this morning savs edi
torially : "If Chicago were not the grealest
American market for cattle and beef nnd hog
jnoducts , the remarkable stupidity which the
Illinois live stock commissioners have shown
in the treatment of the contagious disease In
the distillery stables might not cause surprise
or excite indignation beyond the boundaries
of the city. The inhabitant * of Chicago , to
whom the carcases of the slop-fed cows are to
bo sold , and to whom milk from the Infected
and diseased cows has been .sold for the last
two weeks , might somewhat loudly complain ,
but people elsewheie would bo moved only by
sympatb > . The tiuatmcnt of the diseased
cattle in Chicago is however , something In
whfcli hundreds of thousands of people liv
ing far from Illinois are interested , as they
iccclve their supplies of beef from that city.
Not only dons the matter closely concern all
consumers of Chicago beef , but It i also of
great importance from a commercial point
of vlow , for anything that has a
depressing effect upon the bcof trade
Is 'a blow to xonp fof thecountry's
"slbners of Illinois and dealers in cattletind
beef in Chicago should know that for the rea
sons the dally reports , which show the
wretched failure to work for the suppression
of the disease , are read with indignation out
side of their city. It mavbotnat the. careful
Inspection of infected cows slaughtered bv
their owners will prevent the marketing of
bad meat , but docs the course taken by the
commissioners and the health officer indicate
that the Inspection will bo thorough ? There
is another aspect of this matter which de
serves the attention of the stock yards men ,
butchers and packers. Can thov afford to
have any of this slop-fed and infected beef
sold In the public market of Chicago ? They
cannot They could better alToid to buy and
destroy lifty such herds. But if they really
cared for the reputation of their trade , or
could see that it would bo Injured by such
sales , they would have taken measures for
their protection long ago. "

last night , completing the necessary work in
connection with propositions which they In
tend submitting to the convention , they
were all up early this morulny , and a ma
jority of them on thulr way to Armory hall
before 9 o'clock , the hour set for the begin-
Ing of the session. Althoiuh It was the third
day of the convention , the members were
not yet ready to beeln the actual work they
had eomo to do. There still remained to bo
settled the uuestlotiB of electing eight or ten
delegates which thecommltteoun ciedentlals

strong fccllne axe ! ted ny the efforts of the
Brooklyn men to obtain recognition made the
committee on credentials hesitate. They
were further prompted to such ac
tion , it Is said , by ns eillous made by some
that the committee wns prejudiced against
the Brooklyn mini. To-day thn prlnclnnl
topicof discussion was the r. mission last
night of a eoioied delegate , Fariell , to a seat
In the orchestra circle in the Academy of

general feeling among Virginians hero U bit
ter resentment and they regard the delo-
pates fiom District 49 with anything but
friendly feelings. It Is said that a majority
of the local knUht.s RIO much provoked nt the

reported that n lew knights living hero do-

At noon a recess was taken until 2 o'clock.
Powdorly announced to the representatives
of the nrcss that he had nothing to commun
icate to them. Some secret business had boon
transacted , but of course he could not say ns
to Its nature. The morning session wan
mainly devoted , lie said , to the consideration
of the report of the committee ou creden
tials , which has not been finally acted upon.
The delegates arc unusuallv reticent , anil
such statements as can bo elicited by inquiry
are contradictory. It seems saic to say ,
however , thnt whatever action has been
taken bv the oiedential committee in iho
case of District ! ' . and Brooklyn delegates in
unfa voi able to the latter. The tceline of
the majority of dc legates outside of New
Yoik Is In iavorof Hiooklyn. It now seems
possible that the third dav ' session may end
with the convention still unorganized.
The afternoon session bezlnnlng nt 2

Matters then stood about where they wera

It was rumored to-day that the delegates of

Intended going to Ihe Richmond theatre thlu
evening and if the latter was refused admis
sion to lorce their way in with him. Mrs.
Powell , proprietor and manncor ofthe the
atre , heard of the rumor and gave Instruc
tions that Farrell should not bo admitted ex
cept to the gallery reserved for negroes. Be-
foie the thcatio opened Chief Poe and thlity-
live policemen were on guard there. At the
hour for ojKMiiniT the tno theatre thousands of
people assembled on Bioad street The col
ored delegate nnd his fellow members of dis
trict 49 did not appear and there was no dis
turbance. The crowd lemalned about the
theatre until neatly 10 o'clock.
It Is stated oflicially to-night by a member
of the executive board that the report of the
committee oil credentials has been accepted
on all the contested scats cases excepting
those of Morrison of New York and the SU
Louis delegation. Brooklyn Montauk dele
gates were lefused admission on the con
stitutional ground that wheie there Is a
mixed district another district cannot be
formed without the consent of the existing
district , unless It lias obtained a charter. The
Brooklyn seceding district has neither such
consent nor charter.
