held to-night under the auspices of the
county democracy In the Academy of Music ,
to ratify the nomination of Cleveland and
Thurman. Every scat In the largo audi
torium was filled. On the stage were seated
about five hundred of the leading members
of the county democracy. In thet first bal
cony was stationed the Sixty-ninth regiment
band , which enlivened the audience
ivlth btirring , patriotic airs , Shortly
after 8 o'clock the appearance
of Speaker John O. Carlisle and
Governor David D. Hill on the platform , es
corted by V. Willis James , Kx-Mayor Ed
ward Cooper , and .Senator Michael C. Mur
phy , was tlio signal for an outburst of ap
plause and the waving of bandanas. Senator -
tor Murphy called the meeting to order and
introduced D. Willis James as chairman of
the evening. James , on behalf of the audi
ence , expressed thanks to the ladies whoso
presence graced the meeting and returned
his own thiuiKH for the honor paid himself.
Ho reminded the audience that as Amer
ican citl/ens the election of president and
vice president that confronted them was a
sojomii duty and should be met with a full
sense of its responsibility. Ho pronounced
the ticket nominated by the democrats an
ideal one and predicted it * triumphal elec
tion. A number of letters of regret from
gentlemen who had been invited to bo pres
ent were then read , among them one from
Mayor Hewitt. The announcement of
Hewitt's name was received with
mingled cheers and hisses. The
mayor's declaration that his duties would
not permit him to take part in politics
was received with laughter. Later , the
mayor's declarations In regard to the tariff
wcro greeted with applause. At the coiu lu-
Blon of the reading of ttio letters Corporation
Counsel BccUman read n bories of resolu
tions endorsing the nomination of Cleveland
und Thunnun and pledging to them the
unitcit support of thoitemocracyof New York.
The resolutions wore adopted unanimously.

all their interests as Individuals and mem
bers of the community dependent upon tlio
stability of our social and political Institu
tions , would deliberately proceed
to destroy the foundation of
their own safety and prosperity.
The democrats party has not only demon
strated its capacity to administer the execu
tive department of the government in strict
accordance with the constitution and laws ,
but it has set an example of fidelity to the in
terests of all the people , and integrity to the
discharge of ofUcial duties , which will be of
infinite value to the country through all the
time to come. "
Mr. Carlisle eulogized the demo
cratic candidates , Jand Taddod : "That
gr.uid old man ( Thurman ) , the
leader in many n fierce contest for the prin
ciples of his party , has been called once
more from his retirement to participate in Its
last great struggle and to witness Its Html
and permanent triumph over Its old antago
nist. 1 say final and permanent triumph , be
cause , unless nil signs tire deceptive1 , the re
publican party cannot survive another defeat
In a national contest. Its cohesive power will
be destroyed and It will fall to pieces
as all its predecessors have done. Its dis
membered parts will bo converted into
waring factions or , form themselves into a
new party under a now name. The fifteen
years it has had no mission except to foment
strife and discord among the people and no
ambition accept to hold the ofllces and con
trol the expenditure of the public mono v. And
yet during all that time It lias ostentatiously
paraded itself as the special guardian and sole
custodian ol the public interests and as the
only political organization having the pa
triotism and wisdom to govern the country.
We recognize the fact that the complete de
velopment of the marvellous resources
of such a country as this requires the
investment of Immense amounts of money.
The democracy makes no war upon capital ,
but denounces monopolies and combinations
us gross and dangerous violations of the laws
of trade and the rights of the peoplo.
It will stand for the rights of the millions
who toil for their daily bread.
"Tho republican party is the same polit
ical organization now that it was four years
ago , when it was drawn from power. What
does its Chicago platform mean in the light
of our poll ) leaf history I Every abuse it now
denounces was inaugurated by itself when it
had absolute control of the government. It
professes to favor a free ballot and a fair
count and yet scarcely a decade 1ms passed
since it deliberately perpetrated the grossest
outrage upon the electoral rights of the
people that ever disgraced this or any other
country , and it still boasts of that achieve
Mr. Carlisle further reviewed the fallacy
of republican claims , its relations to trusts ,
homesteads , nnval and merchant marine ,
civil service reform anil finances.
Coi.onifs , O. . June 28. The democratic
committee appointed to notify ex-Senator
Thurman of his nomination , arrived this
morning and was received in appropriate
style by the local democratic clubs. The
committee reached Judge Thurman's resi
dence at 1 o'clock , and upon the appearance
of Mr. Thurman General Collins informed
him of the nature of their viait , und then in
troduced lion. C. IJ. Jacobs , of Kentucky ,
who read the following formal letter of noti
Coi.t'Miics , O. , Juno 2 $ . To Hon. Allen G.
Thurman : Dear Sir It has become my
highly agreeable duty to inform you that
upon the first ballot of the national
democratic convention , held recently
In the city of St. Louis , for the
purpose of selecting candidates for tlio
presidenc.y and vice presidency , you were
unanimously chosen as the nominee of that
great party for the eminent and responsible
oillce of vice president of the United States.
In thus spontaneously and emphatically
demanding your return to that political arena
which you graced with so much wisdom ,
dignity and vigor , the democracy of this
country have honored themselves by reliev
ing their party from the charge of ingrati-
tedo and we believe in November next the
people w ill ell'ace such a taint from the re
public by electing yon to preside over the
most august deliberative' body in the world
the senate of the United States. [ Applause. ]
Stiotild so desirable a consummation bo
achieved , then , indeed , could every lover of
his country , ivgar.llcs- party or creed , re
joice that in you is embraced the hishost type
of an enlightened and refined American citi
zen and that no matter what the crisis might
be this government would bo safe in your
hands. An engrossed copy of the platform
of principles is presented.
In discharging their trust this committee
desire to convey to you the assurances of
their most profound esteem and admiration
and to express tlieir sinceicst good wilies
for your happiness and prosperity. Wo have
the honor , sir , to be your obedient servants.
[ Signed by all the members of the com
Judge Thurman spoke as follows :
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Com
mittee : 1 pray you to accept my very sin
cere thanks for the kind and courteous man
ner in which you have communicated
to mo the ofllcial information of
my nomination by the St. Louis
convention. You know , without my saying
it , that I am profoundly grateful to the con
vention and the democratic party for the
honor conferred upon mo and more so that it
was wholly unsought and undesired by me.
Not that I undervalued the distinction which
any man of our party , however eminent ,
might highly prize , but simply becnnso 1 had
ceased to be < ambitious of public life. Hut
when I am told in so earnest and impressive
a manner that i can still render service to
the good cause to which I have ever been
devoted , a cause to which 1 am bound bv
the ties of affection , by the dictates
of judgment , by a sense of obligation for
favors M ) often conferred upon me , and by
the fervent hope that the party may long
continue to bo able to servo the republic ,
what can I , under such circumstances , debut
but yield my private wishes to thet demand of
those whoso opinions I am bound to respect !
Gentlemen , with an unfeigned diflldrncc in
my ability to fulltll the expectations that led
to my nomination , I yet feel it to bo my duty
to accept and do all that it may be in my
power to do to merit so marked a distinction.
Gentlemen , the country Is blessed by an
able and honest administration of the general
government. Wo have a president who
wisely , bravely , dilligently and patriotically
discharges thy duties of his high ofllea. 1
fully believe that the best Interests of the
country inquire Ins retention , and the hope
that 1 may bo able to contribute somewhat to
bring about the result is oao of my motives
for accepting the place on our ticket , and I
also feel it my duly to lalieir for the reduc
tion of taxes , to put a slop to that accumula
tion of the surplus id the treasury that , in my
Judgment , is not only projudical to our
financial welfare , but is , in a high degree ,
dangerous to an honest and constitutional
government. I suppose , gentlemen , that 1
need say no more to-day. In duo time , and
ill uccorduuco with Uitablishcd usage , 1 will
transmit to your chairman a written nccep-
t nice of my namumt'oa ' with such obser
vations upon public questions as may bcem tome
mo to bo proper. "

The weather seems to have adapted itself to

baggage and provision wagons has been
pouring into the grounds , und their con
tents are being rapidly stowed away
in the many tents and cottages.
Everything is alive with noise mid
activity. It is a. pleasant sight to see the
many tent dwellers busying themselves In
getting settled for a fortnight's stay in their
abodes in the Summer City. Some have
brought h'ltidsomo furniture and tlieir tents
resemble miniature palaces. Others have
brought only a few plain and absolutely nec
essary articles , and doubtless they will bo as
comfortable and free from cure as their more
finely equipped neighbors. Several hundred
people who have come to stay during the
entire season are already on the ground , and
all the tents and cottages will be occupied be
fore to-morrow. Although the prudent di
rectors have provided about flvo hundred
tents , almost the entire number is disposed
of on the first day of the assembly. Those
who have the matter in charge are now
anxiously looking about for a chance to buy ,
rent or borrow a hundred or more tents with
which to supply further orders.

fatigued from their splendid and unprece
dented ratification meeting last night , are
moving into the city of tents in largo num

towns arrived this morning. Fifteen private
tents fr.im Friend ville are now being pitched.
A rumor has been afloat to the effect that

A Itcau or Suicide.
AUIIOIIA , Neb. , Juno 2S. ( Special to TUB
Uiu. : ] Archer Edmonson came from Brom-
Held , this county , yesterday to buy a collln
for his stepdaughter , who had committed
suicide. Her name was Mary O'Brien , and
she was only eighteen years old. She had
been living the previous six months with a
widow Bush , whoso homo is near Bromfield.
About 0 o'clock Monday evening she went to
the barn , tied a piece of binding cord about
her neck ami fastened tbu other mid to a
rafter. Judging from appearances , she must
have stood on an upturned bucket and then
kicked lliu bucket from under her. Shortly
afterward ono of the Bush boy. went to the
barn to do chores and found thu nirl hanging
us described. She was not de.id , and ho
promptly cut the cord , but it was too late.
Shu died the next day. No cause for her
rash deed is known with certainty , but it is
thought that Mrs. Bush's refusal to lot her
sit tin with a beau Sunday night after the
family's bedtime may have impelled the girl
to the act. _

WASHINGTON' , Juno 23. Mr. Davis , from
the pension committee , reported b.iek eight
vetoed pension bills , with u recommendation
that they bo engrossed , notwithstanding the
president's objections , and they wore placed
on the calendar. A motion to have the re
ports printed in the Kecord , and njmotlon to
have printed 5,000 copies of the reports was
referred to the committee on printing , the
statement being made that the democratic
members of the committee had not yet seen
Mr. Allison reported the army appropria
tion bill and indicated tils intention to call It
up this afternoon. The further considera
tion of the fishery treaty and of Morgan's
resolution thereon was postponed until Mon
The senate then resumed the consideration
of the river and harbor appropriation bill.
Several items were stricken out and a num
ber of increases and decreases of appropria
tions agreed to. Among the amendments
nprccd to was one appropriating $10,000 for
the Yadkiii river , North Carolina , by a vote
of Jib to 8.
An unimportant amendment ns to the Im
provement of thu Muskingum river , of Ohio ,
gave Edmunds an opportunity to state that
he had given up following the bill in detail
after the vote on tlio Yndkin river , North
Carolina. Ho had given up the idea of per
suading the majority of the senate that any
item could bo rejected that was supported
earnestly by a senator from that locality.
Ho did not want to strive ngainst manifest
destiny. It was useless for any ono senator
to undertake to resist tlio judgment of u ma
jority of tlio senate in regard to a bill which
contained so larjjo a percentage of things
which ought not to bo done.
The amendment adding to the item of
$200(00 for the Illinois river , Illinois , two
clauses ordering surveys for n navigable
waterway from Lockport to Lake Michigan ,
near Chicago , 10 ( ! feet wide and fifteen deep ,
and for n canal from the Illinois river to the
Mississippi river ( the Henncpin canal ) was
passed over without action on account of the
absence of Mr. Culloni.
Among further amendments agreed to
were the following : Increasing the appro
priation for the Fort St. Croix river in Wis
consin and Minnesota from $ T00 to $10,000 ;
reducing the appropriation for operating snag
boats and dredge boats on the Upper Missis
sippi from J25t)00 ) to $15,000. ,

laid aside after seventy-live pages had been
Sherman , Allison , Manderson , Colquitt
and Berry were designated as the committee
to the centennial exposition at Cincinnati.
The conference report on the diplomatic
and consular bill was presented by Halo and
agreed to. Hale said the only point on which
there was a failure to agive was an amend
ment reported from the senate committee on
foreign relations for a scientific commission
to the upper Congo basin. Sherman , Mor
gan and Edmunds made statements to show
the great importance of the proposition , Mr.
Morgan suggesting the grand opportunity
which the upper Congo offered for the Afri
can population of the United Slates and

the house the United States was standing

A joint resolution extending for thirty days
appropriations for the current liscal year

was presented and referred to the committee
The senate then tonic up the army appro
priation bill. One important amendment re
ported by tlio committee was the insertion of
an item appropriating 5000,000 for cannon
and carriages , projectiles , experiments into
the means of protecting torpedo lines , etc. ,
all materials to be of American manufacture.
Tlio amendment was agreed to.

Without action on the bill or amendment
the senate adjourned.
WASHINGTON' . Juno SiS , On motion of
Mr. Mills , Mr. Ulount of Georgia was
elected speaker pro tern during the temporary
ary absence of Speaker Carlisle , and the
clerk was directed to inform the senate of
this action. The house then went into com
mittee of the whole on the tariff bill.
Mr , Parker of New York moved to strike
from the free list vegetables in their natural
state , or in salt or brine , not specially
enumerated or provided for.
Mr. Uower of Michigan , in supporting the
motion , referred to the strong competition
which existed between the farmers of north
ern Michigan and those of the province of
Ontario , and ho protested against thu re
moval of the small tariff which was now
laid upon vegetables imported from Canada.
Mr. Hrowno of Virginia said that the
question presented was whether the farmers
of this country should bo permitted to feed
the people of the United State's , or whether
the farmers of other countries should be
allowed to do so ,
Mr. Mills of Texas said the substance of
thu objections made to the clause was that it
removed tnu duty on potatoes , This was a
mistake , as potatoes were specially provided
fur in another portion of the bill. The clause ,
he contended , was in the interest of the con
suming classes , and ho inquired where thu
republicans would bo willing to reduce taxa
"Tho platform of the republican party says
it is in favor of u repeal of internal taxes , "
said Mr. Mills. "H says it is in favor of tak

that Is not enough , it is in favor of taking off
all internal taxes. That is what is under

Mr. Mills said it was well known that
the majority of the republican party was
opposed to the extreme position which the re
publicans had taken at Chicago , For the
llrst time at Chicago had thu republicans
taken the position before the American people
plo in favor of keeping taxes on the necessi
ties of life , and demanding that the treasury
should bo emptied by taking the tux ail

power , would not taUe the tax oil whisky and
leave ft on every article of necessity.
Mr. Kelly of Pennsylvania said ho advo
cated the repeal of war taxes , which JeiTer-
son had denounced as an infernal system.
Ho had demanded that the democracy
should walk in the steps of the
forefathers of.that partyjund shpuld maintain
its holiest precedence by removing the super
vision of the national government from tlio
fields , the factories and the orchards of the
B-iUtli. Ho had demanded that the democrats

It was n dire party necessity which made the
chairman of the ways and mentis committee
make such n charge apninst him personally
or as n representative of his party.
Mr. Splnola of New York said n party
should bo Judged by its arts , and it was
stated in a newspaper that 31.250 extra bar
rels of beer had been consumed In Chicago
during the session of the convention. That
was a pretty strong piece of prlma facie evi

Mr. Heed of Maine said that the gentleman
from Texas knew that the position of the re
publican party on tais subject was too simple
to bo turned in this way , but if the domo-
cratK1 piutv should over commence n cam
paign without false statements , Its own
friends would not know It.
Mr. Weaver of Iowa criticises the internal
revenue plank of the Chicago platform and
declared that the issue could not bo shirked
and that there could bo no shunting.

of Virginia , "and 1 am In favor of the repeal

Mr. Weaver This bill provides for. the re
peal of that tax , but 1 say to the gentleman
from Virginia that his position in favor of

After some further discussion Mr. Baker's
motion was defeated and the committee rose.

Despite tbo fact that the republicans In tha
house yesterday objootedto | any movement on
thop.ut of the democrats tending to cut off
debate on the tariff bill , the democratic mem
bers of the committee on ways and means
intend to force some action In that direction.
They declare that the Mills bill must bo fin
ally disposed of by the house within two
weeks and that if the present debate Is per
mitted to run on they cannot got It out of the
way before the middle of August. The re
publicans have given the democrats duo no
tice that they will resist , with every means
at their command , all efforts to cut oft a full
discussion of the bill. They Justify t Inju
nction In doing this by saying that
the democrats took three mouths to
prepare the hill ; that not a single republican
voice was heard In the compilation of the
measure and none ot the industries or laborIng -
Ing interests wore allowed to speak and that
this is tbo only time the country will have n
word in protesting against the destruction of
the manufacturing and agricultural Indus
tries. The republicans say they will Hill-
bustcr to defeat any effort to cut off the do-
hate. The democrats believe , however , that
when Mr. McKlnley returns the full com
mittee on ways and means can get toirothei'
and agree upon a reasonable limit of the de
bate. This will have to be done either by
unanimous consent or a change In the stand
ing i tiles of the'lmuse.
