The Stnto Convention.
HAHTINOS , Neb. , Oct. 7.-SptcIal [ Telegram -
gram lo the Hi r. | The dcmocratlo state
convention convened at Kerr's opera house
Hits evening at 8 o'clock. The lateness of
thu assembling of the convention Is nc-
cuitnted for by ttic fact that the congressional
convention , which was to hnvo met at 5
o'clo-.k this afternoon , did not assemble until
nearly 7 , owing to the lateni'ss of the trains.
Long before the convention vvas called to
order the opera house was packed to over
flowing by delegates nnd a laigo
number of visiting statesmen , who came as
lookers on. The city has been full of dele
gate-null dav and considerable Inteiest has
been manifested , although the enthusiasm
cannot bo said to compare with the Inteiest
and enthusiasm displayed at the republican
state cciMM'iitlon at Lincoln ouo week ago.
The hopelessness of victory precluded any
great conti-st ov or the govei norshlp. All the
delegates seemed to feel that their mission in
com In , ' to Hastings was nil Idle one.
The convention vvas called to order by
.lames K. North , of Columbus , chaliman of
the state cential committee. Herman , ot
Fianl-liii county , placed In nomination tor
temporaiy chairman the name of ( lenotal
Montgomery , of Lancaster. The nomina
tion vvas seconded by O.Day , of Holt county ,
and ( icneral Montgomery vvas elected with
but ono dissenting Note Upon being Intio
duced to the convention , thu general
thanked the delegates present In the follow
ing words :
( icntlomcn of the Convention : I desire to
return you my thanks for the honor von
have con lencil upon mo by making mo jour
temnoraiychairiiian. 1 suppose tliatallol you
delegates beio assembled to-night , us well
as the ladles and others who do not belong
to the convention , recogiil/o the cieat fact
tlmt we aio now living nnderanatlonal dem
ocratic administration. lApphiuso.J Yon
will further iecogni/o that In our last na
tional rampilgn our lupubllcan lilonds
piophosled a moat manv things , among
which vvas tlmt It the democrats got into
pnwi'i euMvihlng In the country would go
Into smash. Still the sun shines , tlio rain
falls , the grass glows all tills within a
joar and a half of demociatic
admlnlstiatlon. I do not see but
vvhat natiito performs all her functions
the same as sliedid undei a lopubllcan ad-
iiilnlstialion. rApphuise.J Uesldes this , wo
claim that public ollleo Is a public trust , nnd
that a man elected to a public olllce should
hold that position lorthe benclit of the pee
ple. We have a president who Is acting out
that principle and , I believe , to the satisfac
tion of the huge majority of the people ; of the
country. Homo ot us may not bo sat-
isilcd with a gieat maiv - little things.
Wo haven't been used to it. It is tlio creat
doctrine ot the demociatic party : Thocieat-
cst good to the greatest number. 1 meiely
suggest ono point to illustrate. Wo have ono
Issuobctoreu" , and it is the only issue ex
cept reform and ttiat Is the question of n
protective ttiilil. The democratic party Is
opposed to taxing n buideii upon the largo
maloilty ot the people lor the pmposo of
making rich a few Individuals. It is
In favor of low taillt sufficiently to pay the
expenses of the government economically ad
ministered. 1 do not desire at this late hour
to detain you. What Is yourfurthei pleas-
uioV .
On motion the following committee vvas
appointed on credentials : I { . W. Patilck , of
Douglas ; J. K. Ninth , of Platte ; H. Ulegir. of
Klclmidson ; J. 1) . Calhoun , of Lancaster ,
anil. I. U. IJIakHy , of Cheyenne.
Pending the report of the committee the
convention took a recess of about twenty
minutes. During tlio iccess there weio loud
calls foi W. L. Ureon , of Kearney. In re
sponse ( ireon took the stage and held the
convention with a speech of homo ten
minutes duration. Ho made n lively albeit
a somewhat facetious address , which pro
voked a gicat deal of laugltter fiom the
vigorous-lunged delegates piesent. Hlsailu-

At the close ot Green's tcmaiks James K.
JJoyd was called out , and Ids appearance vvas
the signal for an Immense demonstration ot
enthusiasm. Ho spoke as follows :
1 thank you. gentlemen , for your coidlal
Kioctlnir and for the maltcstatlon of jour es
teem. I , for tlio past low days , have boon
( iiilto 111 , and I don't feel able at the present
lime to properly addiessjon , and I think It
Is unfair for you to ask mo to do so after
listening to a gentleman who Is conceded to
hn ono of the finest oiatoin In the stale. Hut
1 deslio to impiess upon your minds
that theio can bo no success without organi
zation. Theio should bo pcifect orgunl/a-
lion In ovety county and piecinct In the state.
Without It vvo cannot liopo for success. The
republican pirtj , by thu adoption ot a piohl-
tion plank In theii platfoim , has given us an
opuoitunlty such as wo never Imd bofoie.
lApplaiiso.j They thought It biitlalrthat
the question should bo submitted and that
tlm people have a right to vote upon it , but
ciui piexent law foihldsit. Anv eltv or mu
nicipality In the stutocan , If they wish , refuse
to L'raut a license. 1 am glad Indeed that thu
republican party has at last shook oil the
mantle of hypocrisy and has liibcrlbed upon
its banner , piohibltlon. A largo majority of
the republicans me and always have been
prohibitionists. Mr. Hlaluo , their Htandaid :
neaier In the late campaign , In the slate o1
Maine claimed for thu republican paity th °
credit for all the niolilbltory hvjlsluilo'n in
that Mate and Mr. I 'rye , his able lieutenant ,
said that ho vvas in luvor of putting a
piohlbltoiy plank In the national platform
and hollou'd that unon that platfoim they
would comiuci. This convention will place
Itst'lt on iccoid that vvo aio in fa voi of high
llcenso nnd against pioldbltioii. [ Long anil
continued apphiusol. Our Commit friends
must now see that tlio lopnbllcan p.uty pro

Cciitlvmcn of the Convention : I doubt
my ability to sulllclcntly express the sense of

honor. As for hack as vvo can remember
nnj thing about the politics of the democratic
party of Nehiaska It has been deemed a
high honor to be made chairman of oven thn
little gathci Ings whoic theio weio but a few
of us gathered together to keep alive the
spirit of demociacy , and If these vv cro lionorA ,
by comparison how much greater must ( feel
the obligations and the honoi when asked to
pit-side over the deliberations ot a body of
this magnitude and Intelligence.

tendent of public Instruction.
The completion of the ticket vvas followed
by a somewhat heated discus-don over the
appointment of a state central committee.

that a committee of ten be appointed ono
from each judicial dlstilet to icnort the
names ot four men liom each judicial dis

Ireland , of Otoo county , moved the tollow-
iiu amendment : "That a committee ol ono

trict to act as a state central committee. "
Tlio motion and the amendment wera
waimly ilisciisscd by lieland , O'Day , nnd
otheis. Much bittornoqsivas shown in the
discussion. Delegates from Nemaha and
Kcd Willow charged O'Day with attempting
to force a gar ? rule upon thu committee and
the democrats of the state.
Piitehott , of Don das county , depiecated
tlio remarks ot the delegates who had com
plained so bitterly of O'Day's motion and

The Struggle for the Ten-Jlour SjNtcni
in the Chicago Packcrics.
Cmr.vcio , Oct. 7. ( Special Telegram to
the UIK. : | That the packers will return to
the ten-hour system there now exists no
doubt. Monday uoxt has been settled upon
as tlio day. On Satuiday employes will bo
notlllcd and on Monday It they fail to accept
the system tuo houses will bo shut down.
The announcement yesteuhy that the pack
ers had icsolved In secret session to return to
the old system , created constcination among
thousands of employes , while thousands of
others icgarded tlio alleged move as u bluff.
The rnmoi gained fiesli Impetus and created
frennlnu alarm when It became known that
the head hog bujer for Armour & Co. , and
acting through the Pork Packing association ,
notlllcd the olllccrs ot the Live Stock ex
change that the poik packets would sus
pend operations Monday unless their
laooiers would agico to work ten hours for
ten hours pay. The otllcers of the exchange
at once posted notices tor a special meeting
to-day , the object being to enable commission
man to notify their customcis throughout the
country of the prospect of a great stiiko , and
to not ship any stock to the Chicago market
pending thodlfilcttlty , A genuine tremor v\as
discci liable in labor circles this morning.
The laborers assert they will not rollnuqul.sli
their grasp on that which they have gained
and labored so hard to keep. There Is a
great deal of Incendiary talk. The men will
not go back to the ten hours system , and tlio
probabilities are that they will not allow
anybody else to do so. They aver that
nt the present system of work they
aio doing as much as under the old sjstein. It
Is now certain that the hog packers have con
solidated as well as the laboring element.
Armour will shut down and It Is supposed he
will bo followed by others , but what will be
ctono in the benf killing houses Is unknown ,
and ovciyeifort failed to elicit anything 10-
gardlng them. Tlio lock out will tlaovv 25.000

case.This afternoon , when Judge ( ! ary asked
the pilsomus whether they had anything to
olTcrvhy sentence1 should not bo passed upon
them , Spies stopped lorwatd and began readIng -
Ing n prepared spccjli. Spies commenced bv
saving :
Vour honor , In addressing this court , I
speak as the ropresuntativo of ono class
addioss'.ng a lopic.ientatlvo of another
I will begin with the words addressed
live hundred jears ace by a similar motion by
the Venitian Dogo. "who , addicsslng the
com I , s.ild : "My defense is your accusation ;
the cause of my alleged crime Is your his
tory. " 1 have been Indicted on the charge or
minder , as an accomplice oraccesvory. Upon
this Indictment 1 have been convicted. Tlieru
was no witness produced by the state to
show , 01 even Indicate , that 1 had nnv
knowledge or the mail who thiew the bomb ,
or that 1 myself had anything to do with it.
Not the slightest evidence was ever pro
duced to show" that ; J had an } thing to do
with the throwlugof the missile , unless you
believe the testimony of accomplices of the
state's altornov and BoUlield the testimony
ot Thompson and Ullmer. Ifthoiiiasno
evidcnco to siiow that 1 responsible for
it , then the execution of the veidict is noth
ing but wlitnll , malicious , nnd deliberate
minder , as lout murder as may be found in
the annals ol ti-liglous , political , oranj other
soil of prosecution.
Spies then reviewed the oyidpnco pre
sented by the prosecution , and charged the
sta tes attorney and ISonfield with conspiiacy
to commit murder. Spins devoted some time
to tlio discussion of socialism , and said :
"You want to stamp out conspiiacy. You
resemble the child that is looking lor his pic-
tine behind a Jiiiudr. What you see and
what you try to ginspin your inovciiicni js-
nothing cteaUpns cfyottr cad consciences
It jon want to stnn Lnut torrspti ! < ac1cseaiur
agitators j on must stamp out every factoiy
lord , vho hasjnndoIds wealth upon thn un
paid labor of his employes , and the landloid
wlio has made his money from th'o ground-
down and oppicsscd laboroi.s and farmeis. If
you tnink you can crusli out Ideas which arc
gainlne ground eveiy dav by sending us to
the pillows ; that you can truth
tor that is all wo have been preaching--jou
will fall. "
Then , llouilshlnghisarms wildly , hcshrlek-
cd : " 1 bhall die moudly , defiantly , for the
cause of justice. There is Socrates , there is
Galileo , there Is Gloidano Kruno , there Is
Christ : why thu number cannot bo estimated
of thosn wlio have trodden In these patlis ,
and we me ready to follow them. "
Michael Schwab then took the floor. In a
stentorian voice hi ) bo nn ; "It is not much I
have to bay , and I would not sav nothing at
all ; did 1 not icar alienee would look llko
cowardly anproval of what has been done
here. I am condemned to die lor writing
newspaper editorials. " The anarchist then
went on to justify these articles by going
over in detail all the real or Imaginary evils
of the accumulations of capital and the in
justice of the relations between the employer
and employed. Then followed a disquisition
on the principles and theories of socialism
and anaichy. lie concluded by disavowing
all knowledge of the man whotlircwtho
bomb nnd protested that he Intended to do no
violence at the Haymarkct.
Oscar Neebo , tlio next speaker , had no
sooner taken the llo'ir then he burst Into violent
lent abuse , calling States Attorney Grlnnell a
cur , his assistants , Messrs , walker and
Furthmann. scoundrels , saying there was
only one gentleman In the crowd and that
was Ingliam. The police were assailed in
peculiar plnaseolocy , and , In shoit , Neebc's
speech was a tirade of abuse , villlfylng the
police and authorities. Abandoning himself
to a wild appeal to the judge to hang him
with the others , he cried : It would be more
honorable to bo strangled by the neck than to
die by Indies. My wife and children will
then bo nt ease some time , but they can never
irctovci It If their husband Is font to.Iollet.
Hang me , vour honor , with my conuades. "
Adolph Fischer camonext , and commenced :
"Your honor , jou ask mo to soy why sen-
tcncu of death should not bo passed upon
mu. I protest airnlnst my being sentenced to
death because I have committed no crime. I
was tried In this Jury loom for murder , and I
was convicted for anarchy. 1 don't
deny that I was ono of thu par-
tics who summoned this meeting
In the llaymaikot , but I Know no more about
the tluovt ing of the bomb then Gi innell does ,
perhaps. 1 do not deny that 1 got up the
clictilarand had a line put In calling on vvoik-
ingmcn to conm armed. I imd my reasons , f
am not convicted because I am a murderer. I
am convicted because-lam an anarchist. 1
ha\o never been n murdeior , hull know a
certain man who Is on the way to becoming n
murderer , and that Ktuto'f . Attorney Giin-
nell , because ho has placed men hero upon
the stand wliom ho kilovv would swear lakscly
In the case where eight lives were at staku.
An nnaichlst Ipvesiits principles better than
his life , and I am pfiop.ired to die for the
principles on accounts holding which I feel
1 am to be sentenced-to death. That is all 1
have to say. "
Louis Lfrigg , the bomb-maker , oxpiessed
the wish to have tils } * v In German. An In
terpreter wits placed at nls sei vice. In deep-
chested tones Llnpg exclaimed : "Court of
Justice , with the same contempt with which
1 liavo tiled to live humanly on tills Ameilcan
soil , 1 am now granted the privilege to speak. Is because indignities have
been heaped upon me. " Lines deckued It
had not been proven tbat any bombs made by
him had been tnttcir to tne Haymarkef.
He accused the police of stealing Ins books
and clothing In the station , and then peijur-
Ing tncmselves against him on the witness
stand. "Giiiineli , " shouted Llngg , "has con-
nlved with miserable people to get evidence
to kill me , when bo knows I was dilvcn to
the course I pursued , to gain an education
for my hrothcrs'-to lift them UD. " As tlio
youthful anaichlst slowly progressed with
his speech , his form seemed to swell and
delate with the Intensity of his teellng. ills
frame shook with passion and his guttural
voice- poured lourth torrents of emphatic
sentenced in his native language. Ho strode
Impatiently back and foiwaid while the In
terpreter tiaiibluted each bentenco.and occa
sionally emphasized his words by a violent
blow upon the little table In front of him. At
last , turning fiercely to the states attorney ,
Llngg roared : "You smile because you think
1 will never use bombs again , 1 die vvjlllngly
on the gallows- with the same contempt for
deatli that 1 have for > our laws. "
Captain lilack hcio asked the court to ad
journ , as the tlmaftir doing so had arrived ,
and Knplo. and some of the others desired to
speak. The court adjourned till 10 a. m.

DK < Motsr.s , la. , Oel. 7. [ Special Tcle-
Brain lo the Hti : : . ] The great
fieht , whleh the Congregational woild has
been anticipating for a long time , came olT
to-day In the session of the Ameilcan bo.iid.
It was waged all day with the vigor of n
political debate , though with the bitterness
and rancoi of partisan politics softened
somonhat by n'llgloits courtesy. The battle
was piecipltated till * morning ny the rnpoit
ot the committee that had been reviewing
the work of the homo or prudential commit
tee. As described bj Sccictaiy Alden , Pres
ident Bartlett , of Dnitmoutli college , who
read theropoit , Intioduced a icsolutlon en
dorsing the action of the prudential commit
tee In lojcctlnirmlssionaiy candidates who
had doubts about the iiueMlon of fututo pro
bation. The resolution was not very sttong ,
but it unmistakably endorsed the position
that the piudentlal committee can pass on
theological questions. Piof. K. C. Smvth , of
Andover , Dr. W. H. Waul , editor of the Now
Yoik Independent , llov. Newman Smytho ,
ot New Haven , and li. Lyman Abott , editor
of the New Yoik Christian Union , led the
light for the now departure.
There were three classes of people present
to-day : Those who believe In futuio pioba-
tlon or have doubts about It ; those who do
not believe In it , and the o who
pass no opinion upon it , but think the
matter Is foreign to the work of the board
and ought not to bo considered at this meet-
Ing. So the fight was complicated and the
main nuesttou was not discussed on Its merits
as much as it might be. Many conscivatlves ,
who hold tlio old .school doctilno , vvcio op
posed to taklnir nny action hcio that would
seem to endorse the tight of the prudential
committee to setup a theological test of n
candidate's qualifications for mission vvoik.
So with this complication the light began.
PiofessorSmvth , of Andover , made a very
strong speech In lavoi of laixencss of opin
ion and tolciatlon of difleienccs on minor
matteis. He assisted that this question of
probation was only of secondary Importance
and the boaul could not ulfoul to adopt so
haish and exclusive a policy as that piopos d.
He spoke with gicat emotion and pioduccd a
deep Impiesslon.
Quite dllleiont was the splilt of the speech
of li. Ward , of the Now York Independent.
Ho v\as slmip , Impatient and somewhat s.u-
castie in Ills stilclurcs upon the old school
men , dcclailng that they wuio tiying to
abrldne fiee thought and cheek the ptogicss
of the chinch. 'Ihe men who icpiosent , what
Is called the now depaituic , stand lor libei-
aliti of opinion on non-essential points.
Itev. Newman Smythe.of Now Haven , nuulo
a very Impressive speech protesting against
any unca'hllic and intolerant action by the
board. Houiged the disastious effect it
would have upon voung men wlio weio lookIng -
Ing ton aid mission fields nnd upon the
church In gcneinl , If this mete matter of
speculation Mionld bo set up as a foiblddcn
do ma. Ho was loudly chceiod when ho
said : "You ran't shut us out of thn chinch.
You can't keep ns out , for wo will appeal
again nnd attain till , with larger faith and
chaiity , jou admit us when vvo como asking
only to bo allowed to preach a common Chi 1st
and Sav ioiv'
It was plain that the majority of the boaut
.ml the audience was stiongfy against the
new departure men. Tlio old conservative
notions were applauded to the echo. Some of
the old sclioolmen wen : ver > stiong in their
condemnation. Ono enthusiastic member
compaicd the ncwschool men to the .southern
rebels , who required the union armies before
they would be put down. The more radical
jut conservatives I loci } cxpiessed the opinion
that no man , however othciwlso well quall-
lied ought to lie allowed to preach as a mis
sionary if ho Imd any doubts about the fact
that the heathen , who had never heard ot
Chilstand died ccntiitlcs nso. were everlast
ing damned. The venerable Maik Hopkins ,
who was held in tender regard by all the
warring factions tiled at last to pour oil upon
the tumbled waters , and succeeded so far that
the final vote on the resolution of approval
of the piudentlal committee should bo taken
viva voice and lonuho no man logo on record

was very shrewdly worded and simply ap
proves tlio action of the committee In gimid-
Ing against a d.inccious . tendency in connec
tion with the doctrine of probation. Jtoth
sides will undoubtedly claim under it tin ;
light to hold their loimcrpositloiifi. Finally
as a compromise and to guard against subse
quent trouble , they decided to advise the pin-
( lentlal committee to leave theological ques
tions alone whenever they got Into a tight
place. Ono stnbboin fact stood nil tlio tunu
