CTr.vr..ASi > , O. . Oct. 2. [ Special Tele-
pram to Tun HEE. ] Mike Kelly , the high-
priced star In the Boston ball club , created n
Bfcne nt League park to-day. It is claimed
that ho was Intoxicated , nnd that whisky
\vaatliocanso of his disgrace which came
upon him Just nt the beginning of the sev
enth Inning. Kelly was In uniform , but was
too much "Indisposed" to pluy. Ho sat
muffled up In an overcoat on the bench of the
Cleveland players , nnd made profane com
ments on the game im it progressed. Cleve
land wan thrco runs ahead and ho ventured
to Inform tlio members of his club In a loud
tone ot voice that they could not win. "You
never win , " said he , With characteristic
modesty , "when I don't play. Kelley Is king.
T am a King. " No attention wns paid his little
tlo pleasantries , which wore muttered ut
times and shouted at others ,
In Boston's half of the sixth Htchnrdson
\vns touched out nt the pinto. Kelly did not
llko Umpire McQunld's decision , nnd when
the Inning was over strode toward McQuaid
with blazing eye and inlliuned faco. He
told the umpire ho came west to rob Ucston
of the pennant , and nt the sumo tlmo drew
back Ins list to strlko McQuaid. Two po
licemen sprang Into tlio field und grappled
with Kelly , who broke away and niarto for
McQuaid again. The officers took the pugi
list In hand , however , nnd nftor chok
ing him a trlllo to subdue his
untamed spirits , dragged him through the
pate and loft him thcro. Lighting a cigarette ,
bo strode Into the street with u dejected air.
He attempted to enter the grounds again ,
but found the gate locked , nnd the fence
xvas too high to vault. Small boys chlded
him and a gentleman on the bleuchors sug
gested that ho buy a ticket und break In by
way of the turn-stile. While the disturb
ance was at its height the game was
topped. _

T1I13 KNIGHTS OF tjAUOB.
I'owdcrly Denies That tlic Order IE
Ijo inu UN Vitality.
ST. Louis , Oct , 2.-Tho Knights of Labor
general executive board was In secret ses
sion nil the morning , but nothing of im
portance developed.
In an. Interview to-day Grand Mastei
Workman Powderly said : "As to the state
ments that the Knights of Labor have beer
losing power and they have no confidence Ir
their officers , there Is not a word of truth it
it. The order has been growing rapidly ir
the last year and the greatest cause of its
growth is the fooling that the executive
boa.'d is acting in a manner conducive to the
best interests or the knights. "
J. J. Holland , of Jacksonville , D'la. , said :
"Tho whole animus of the opposition toPow
derly originated in tbj process of house
cleaning which wo adopted some tlmo ago
many unruly und bad elements being ex
pcllcd. Slnca that time tboy have bcci
making war on the management of the order ,
bilt with little success. In tlio south the negroes
groes are Joining the order in great numbers
There is scarcely n doubt that an alliance oi
some kind will bo made between the Farm
ors' alliance , tlio wheelers and the Knight :
of Labor. The former organizations art
particularly strong In the southwest. As tc
the charge of extravagance against Powdorlj
in reward to the southwestern strike , thai
has been declared groundless by authorized
assemblies of the order tlmo and again , ant
for these men to try to sav anything oguinsl
Ins conduct now is slmnly absurd. "
The Globe-Democrat gives a sensational
interview with one of the Knights of Laboi
who claimed ut last night's meeting that Ills
name , among others , attached to a documcni
endorsing Furlong for chief of the sccre' '
service was a forgery. Upon being ques
tioned , nnd with the understanding that hU
name would not bo mentioned , ho said :
"The names were not forpencs. Wher
wo signed thorn wo did so with the under
standing that recommendations wcro to be
filed in Washington for official eyes only , bu
the committee betrayed us. While w <
signed , tnern for the president's ' eye wo ulc
not sigu them for the public oye. "
Three other Knights of Labor also con
curred in the above story.
To-night General Master Workman Pow-
derly visited the local assemblies and ad' '
dressed them briefly on mutters Tor the gooi
of Uio order. Ho was accompanied by uicin
hers of the general executive hoard.

BAY STATE , DEMOOU/ITS.
They Nominate Russell For Governor
nnd Adopt n Platform.
WoncnsTun , Mass. , Oct. 3. The democratic
state convention was railed to order at 11:30 :
this morning by Chairman P. A. Collins ,
who was raado temporary chairman. After
the appointment of { no unual committees ,
Nathan Matthew , Jr. , of Boston , was
made permanent chairman. On taking tno
chair Matthews addressed the convention at
considerable length. After Mallows had
concluded his speech , "William E. Kussoll , of
Cambridge , wa ? unanimously nominated for
governor. A ' 'recess until 2:80 : was then
taken ,
The platform , which hus boon ngreod to
In committee , but not formally adopted , res-
affirms the demands for free raw materials
and lower duties upon the necessaries of
lifo ; favors partial or cntiro reciprocity of
trade betwccn.the United States and Canada
and close commercial relations with Mexico ,
and condemns the arbitrary action of the
treasury department in respect to the
importation .ofi Mexican ores ; de
nounces election frauds and opposes a
scheme for u national election law. ' It con
demns the present administration for Its nar
row partisanship and low standard oC public
duty ; for its surrender to the dictation of
unscrupulous1 - > pqlitical bosses , such as
Mahono. Quay tand Plait ; for its utter be
trayal of the cause of civil service reform ;
for its perversiqn'of the pension machinery
for distributlpg ( the nation's bounty into a
menus to influence votes ; for its sale of high
political odloofor largo contributions of
money bv which it was placed in power , and
of its shameless > nepotism , clearly indica
tive of a conception of public oftlce
not as a public trust , but asa
private perquisite. The ruling by which the
present administration , In reversal of former
decisions , hus thrown open the pension list
to persons dishonorably dlscnarged , Is con
demned as an outrage upon common sense , a
Degradation of what should bo a roll of honor
and an insult to every true soldier.
Upon the liquor question it says : "Wo
believe the present policy of the state in
making the sale of liquor a mattar of local
option to bo decided by a vote of the people
of each city and town , works satisfactorily
and should bo maintained. "
Upon reassembling the convention plat
form was adopted and the ticket completed ,
ns follows : Lieutenant governor , John W.
Corcoran , of Clinton ; secretary of state ,
William M. Osgood , of Boston ; treasurer
and receiver , Fencriil E. B. Munn , of Hoi-
