LONDON1 , Sept. 23. A dl patch from
flen-Tsln today bays that an Imperial
i diet lias been Issued by Iho emperor
ot China expressing Ills regret at the
death of General Tse , who was Wiled
while leading a charge nt the battle of Ping
"lang. As a token ot his regret thecm -
jietor lias ordered that postliumous honors
lie paid to the dead general , and Imperial
favors have- been bestowed upon till family.
Lieutenant Chine , first lieutenant of the
Chlh Yuen , the Chinese war vessel sunk at
the liattlo of Yalu river , has reached the
Chinese camp on the banks of the Yulu
river. lie- reported that the captain of thu
Chlh Yuen also escaped drowning , but after
wards died ot his wounds.
A dispatch to the Times from St. Peters
burg' says : It In reported here that China has
attacked the station of the new Usurl sec
tion of the Siberian railway , plundered the
telegraph office , and killed eight Russian
employes. It Is feaic-d ( he government will
make this a pretext to Interfere In the Co-
rean struggle between China and Japan.
The hotuses are affected by the
M ws of the czar's health , as he Is now
rc-eoEiilml ni > one of the strongest supporters
ot pi ace , and It Is feared that In the- event
ot hli > death his successor would sleze the
opiMiitmilty to Hicnrc naval ports on the
Pacific ami enlarge his boundaries In the
direction of the Pamir * at the- expense of
Clilna. either of which steps It Is belied.

denies the report that Kussla.ii troops have
Kone tu Corea. or that Russia lias the In
tention of doing anything calculated to dis
turb the peace of Europe.

that the long deliy In Japanese military

ami of the nailing of 50,000 troops for same

the Japanese authorities grow more and more
Beat to appeals for Information. They frankly
declare that secrecy Is on of their conditions

Another of the pang of count = rfelters who
have made the northwestern part of Charles
Mix county the scen of their operations
has been run down and captured by Deputy
United Stales Marshal Hyan. These dis
patches have already told of the arrest of
Levy Cluik , who had In his possession , uhen
captuted , n complete outfit for the nmmifac-
tuie Dl sliver coin of various denominations.
After being h Id to appear before the next
term of the United States court , and rcallz-
liiK tint everything was very daik for him ,
Claik weakened nnd made a confession to
the olllcers , Implicating another Charles Mix :
county farm r named George Wolcott In the
counterfeiting operitlons. The facts learned
by icason of this confession were Kept \ery
quiet pending the arrest of Wolcott , and now
that he Is also a prisoner the matt r Is
made public. He wns captured at Onyvllle ,
Yanklon county , while attempting to gel
out'cf the country , nnd now lies In Jail here.
The discovery of the counterfeiters' d n
was made entirely b > chance. Henry Pedcr-
M I has a quarter section of land Just over
the Charles Mlt county line In Douglas
LoiuH.v. He had b en absent from home
fame iln > B , and upon returning one day Ia t
week found that someone had forced a way
Into the house and taken borne of hla things.
He liaced the thief to a house across the
line In Cltarl s Mix county afterwards
lejined to be the den of the counterfeiters
mid there found his things. While going
through the lions e searching for the articles
he uue\p ctedly ran across the outfit for
making the spurious coin. ClarK was not at
home ut the time of Pederson's visit Pedersen -
son ut once Informal the authorities of his
illt-covtiy and the arrests followed. In nd- ,
dlllun to the counterfeiting outfit , a la uBO ,
quantity of letters and circulars relating to
the biiblnexs were discovered. In Iho house
'I he unearthing of this gang explains the
reason for counterfeit mon y having been
fa plentiful in that section during the past
fev < months While the officers did not suc
ceed In sen-ling any of the spurious coin ,
there was Mifflcicnt evidence that the gang
had recently been nlnork. .

SARATOGA , Sept. 25. The state demo
cratic convention to nominate candidates for
governor , lieutenant governor and Judge of
the court of appeals was called to order here
today by Senator Murphy , chairman of the
state committee. He named David II. Hill
as temporary chairman. Mayor Ollroy ot
New York and Hon. Daniel L. Woods ot
Krle escorted Senator Hill lo the front of the
platform , and then occurred a remarkable
bccne , The vast body of delegates stood on
chairs , waving handkerchiefs and yelling
themselves hoarse as from different corners
of the uuditorluin came demands ot "Three
cheeis for Dave , " Pandemonium reigned for
at least five minutes , Senator Hill stood
pale and motionless , nne hand resting on
the table , until the applause subsided , and
then at once begt . to speak , partially e.v
lemporaneouply an I partly from notes.
Mr Hill saidThe unterrlfled democracy
of the 12inplre state assembles here todas'
undlBinajed at the premature boasts and as
sume 1 conlldenco of our adversaries.'f
are not unaccustomed to their annual and
mcis covered game of political bluff , al
though reneivetl this year by extraordinary
v hemence and unblushing effrontery.
"If va'n beasts alone could b-lng victory
tl.elr battle Is indeed won before It Is
actually commenced , but we beg to remind
them that there has not been any campaign
In this ttate during the past twelve > ears
when they did not assume In August and
September that they had carried It , when
In truth during that whole period , with a
single exception , victory has perched upon
oui banners on Hie first Tuesday of Novem-
bek' In each jcar V 'c win our victories on
election days and i.ot by exuberant bragado
In convention halls
"The unexpected \Ictory of our opponents
last fall has turned their heads and ren
dered them arrogant and , opinionated. They
fall to recall the fact that the total vote
polled was nearly 300,000 short of the full
vole of the state , a victory which they them
1 selves did not anticipate , and which their
surprised and astute leadeis the next daj
after election humorously attributed to Ml-
vine Providence and not to republican
blrciiRth. With a united banner and united
% otc New 1'oik Is still a democratic stale
nnd If we arc true to ourselves will this year
resume her place In the democratic column
"Our opponents by vigorous beating of
bogus political tom-toms and the Insistence
upon petty and misleading local Issues , seek
to divert tbe public attention from the un' '
enviable iccord Ihej made during their re
cent four years' control of the- federal gov
ernment. Ihe people , however , have not
forgotten the fact that It was n republican
administration which In tnat Ill-fated year
of 1890 saddled the country \vith unwise nnd
vicious legislation which has since crippled
Its prosperity , endangered Us finances anil
ugmented Its public burdens.
" 1'ooj.le remember that the Sherman < .n\er
julllon purchase law was the product ot rc-
iiibllcati slutesmaiuhlp , against the cnact-
nent of which every democrat In congicss
oted It should be borne In mind that the
Inane al pRiilc nns a republican panic In its
nceptlon , continuance and disastrous effects.
"It was under a national democratic ad-
ulnlstratlon that the Sherman and fedora"
lection laws were repealed. Within the
irst > ur of 5our administration , and at the
'iisulng congressional elections , the spsctucle
w 11 bo witnessed for the first time li
twenty-four years of state elections con-
lucted as they ought to be without federa"
titerterence dictation or Intimidation.
riiAisn FOR Tin : xu\v TAIUIT
The enactment of the McKinley tailff law
was Hie culminating atioclty of republican
recklessness In legislation It was the vvr >
[ lersonlflcatlon of protectionism run mad
It was the Inauguration of u huge scheme o
governmental pailnershlp with private bus !
icss Interests. The reaction which follower
! n the elections In the fall of 1S90 , and vvn
iclteratcd In the elections of 1892 , was tli
natural und legitimate expression of the pop
ular Indignation at the party which ha
basely surrendered to the nicrcenarle :
vtthln Its own ranks and had bartered away
ho public good for selfish greed.Ve
iromlscd the people that If entrusted will
lower this vicious , unatiurlcan and objec-
lonuble law fhonUl be repealed , and we re
olce today In the fulfillment of that pledge
The McKinley law has gone where thi
woodbine twirutli , gone to stay , never to bi
re-enacted again by any political party.
"Without iL'Ir.ictlng a single word whlcl
have uttered lit the senate In criticism o
the meabure , while engaged In the effort t
lerfecl It and render It more acceptable , now
lhat It has been passed and become a law
It must be considered as a whole , treate *
largely as a parly measur" , and contrasts
with the McKinley law Uninfluenced b ;
personal disappointments , or any pride o
opinion , I m y be permitted to speak of th
measure us It IB nothing extenuate nor se
down aught In malice. Of Its strictly tar )
features , it may be tiulhfully urged that 1
Is a vast Improvement over the McKInU
law and will clearly demonstrate KB biiperl lime rolla on. and tbe business I
this country si all adjust Itself to Its provl
slons. It recognl/es in part at leaU tin
democratic principle of fice raw materials
It may tafely be asserted that the new la
will not cripple or embarrass u single Indus
try in the land nor throw out of cmploymen
u single workman , nor unduly stlmnlat
over-production on the one hand nor exorti
tunt importations on the other.
"Fellow democrats of the Empire slat
and ot the county the duty of the hour Is
not harsh criticism of democratic leaders
or democratic measures , nor conflicting coun
cils , but It Is a time for conciliation , for
unity of purpose , for aggressive action. The
contiol of both legislative departments of
the government U at stake In the coming
election. Inter party Btrlfe must now cease
und our attacks reserved for the foes who )
are already forming tlnlr lines ot battle
against us , Democratic national and stale
administrations must alike bo loyally sup-
ported. "
The administration of President Cleveland
has been clean handed , economical , pains
taking and patilotlc The various depirt-
meiils ot the national government hive been
conducted with success , and the democratic
party , as a whole. Is entitled to the con
fidence of the masses of Hie people , whose
Intereitt It endeavors faithfully to serve. Tlie
administration of our state government un
der democratic auspices has merited the pub
lic confidence. We have slven to Ihe elate
wise laws ; we have reformed abuses. ; we
have aided the CJUFC of labor , and we have
contributed largely to the added greatness ,

A * the close of the speech 'tho ' usual com *
mlttces were appointed und ( he convention
adjourned until tomorrow at noon ,
A cold , bracing atmosphere , a few spatters
of rain , followed by bright sunshine , greeted
the delegates to tha convention this
nibinlng. Everybody was astir early
and the morning trains brought large contin
gents to swell the crow'd , Hotel corrhlois
end streets were full nnd . at tlie Grand
L'nlon , where democratic headquarters were
established , there was a great crond. The
stiects were lively all night , marching
crowds of boomers shouting at the top ot
Hiclr lungs made the night ami most of the
early morning hideous for thosevvho wished
to sleep. Senator Hill was an early riser ant ]
as the first contingent of leaders went Into
the dining room about 8:30 : they were told
that Snator Hill had cflten liU breakfast at
7 o'clock. Krom that time.on until almost
neon lie , it behind closed doom , refusing to
bee even the leaders and announcing to all
corner * tlmt ho was busy preparing his re
marks as the temporary chairman. From all
Indications It Is evidently tin- intention of
the leadeis to formulate no slate until the
oigonlzntlon of Hie committee.
The Whitney boom still retains Its proml-
ncrce and there Is evidently a ( UsIre on the
part of the leaders to wattuntil , Mr. Whlt-
nej's arrival In New York or In Saratoga to-
mcirovv before making a nomination. T'to
Tammany men this morning arc unanimous
for Whitney and the Kings county men since
the withdrawal of Gaynor show a disposi
tion to follow In Tiimuiany's footsfps and
everybody wears such on , air uf uncertainty
that a dark horve might he dropp d upon the
cnnvenlion with success at any time. There
Is also a likelihood this morning that the
coi ventlon , with the assistance ot the galler
ies , may stamp do for Hilt , and In Unit ca e
the senator would have to do what he lus
not done jet announce positively his de
cision In Ihe matter.
The Gaynor adherents Htlll claim this
morning that Mr Gaynor's tclegiam Is not
tcbe construed as a declination. They Insist
i hit he Is In the race , with excellent pros-
l-ccts of being nominated.
Frederick S. Coudert. who arrived k'-rc
this moinlng. Kays he thinks Mr. Whitney
will make an excellent candidate. Many are
suspicious , however , that Tammany's support
of the U'lillney boom Is nor t-lnc"ic , arguing
that It It were the Maje flc'mocracy people
would be given seats In tbe convention , ut In part.

INDIANAPOLIS , Sept. 25. The formall-
tics ot opening the republican campaign tu
Indiana were run through with here today. ,
Upon Governor McKinley of Ohio devolved '
the pleasant duty of making the declaration
of war upon the Intrenched dc'inocrucy of
Hooslerdom , and he discharged It us cour
ageously and defiantly as he was wont In
other days to carry battles Into southern
fields. The occasion was given added con-
cquenco by Ihe presence ot ex-President
larrlson. who. In a ten-minute speech , In-
roduccd Ohio's governor to the thousands
hat packed Toniltnson hall to the very-
alls. A large crowd of enthusiasts It was
! ial faced their two famous leaders of the
cpubllciin party compressed and therefore
omplalnlng , but Intent and respectful and
lost cordially responsive.
During the morning Governor McKinley
as visited at the hotel by hundreds. Quite
II of the prominent republicans of the state
avc come to the capital today , and they
ndlvldually paid their respects. Delega-
lens from various points nf the state
niirched from the ( rains to the hotel , some
f them headed by bands of music , and
heered lustily for McKinley Governor
lutthews sent his private s cretary In a car-
loge for his fellow chief executive , who
ailed at the capital building and had an In-
eich.tnge of courtesies with the state ofll-
lals A great many have come In fiom
nitKlds of Ihe city to Join the local republi
cs , swelling the ciowd to great propor-
ions and making it Impossible foi the ball
o accommodate those who wanted to hear.
Shortly after noon ex-President Harrison
ailed on Governor .McKinlcat his hotel ami
it 12 30 a procession was formed which cs-
orted the et-presldenl and governor by an
ndlrect route lo the hall , where they were
iproarlously cheered on entering General
larrlson presided.
In Introducing Governor McKinley lie ? ad !
Mr. Fellow Citizens The delightful duty
las been assigned m * by the slule central
ommittce of the republican parly of Indiana
0 preside over this fjreat meeting. I am lee
> o Its chairman , not Its speaker , and I con
gratulate you on thut fact. ( Laughter ) Two
ars ago this country was not only the most
irosperous country In Ihe world for that It
lad been before but It stood upon the high
est pinnacle ot prosperity that It hail ever
before attained. ( Checis. ) This Is not the
rdict ot politicians ; It Is the verdict of the
commercial reporters , it is the expressed
opinion of those men who make a profession
f studying business conditions. The last tivo
. ears have b en years ot dlslicss and dis
aster , the losses during th m defy the skill
of the calculator It lias been said and I
: hlnk not without leason , .thai they exceed
.he cos ! of the gieat civil war. These losses
lave not bsen class IORRCS ; they have been
llstributed. The holder of stocks and bonds
1 as found his wealth shrinking , ami ? o has
, ue farruen. nnd thp worklnginan ha.s found
ils wages shrinking There 1i t > beeira sen--
eral participation 111 ( he cAMmltles of the
ijst two yars , on there was u Rtneial par-
.Iclpatlon In the prosperity of the preceding
years. ( Applause. )
The great national losses , like those nf the
civil war , lave | sometimes their adequate- -
compensations. . Great as wus the loss ot the
civil war for the union , we feel that It was
adequately compensated for In the added glory
lhat vvas given to the Hag. and In the added
security that was given to our civil In
stitutions and tlio unity of the nation.
( Cheers. ) But Hie losses of the lust two
tears have no such compensating thought.
There Is no good to be gotten out of them
( laughter ) except for guidance. They seem
lo have been of a retributive nature , like
the swamp Into which a traveler has un
consciously driven , thai has no omellouitlng
suggestion except that It teaches him to
keep on the foothills and on the roads tint
ore on the hilltops. We weie told the rich
were getting richer and Hie poor poorer , and
lo cure lhat Imaginary 111 our political oppon
ents have brought In u time when everybody
Is getting poorer ( Great applause ) I think
I remember to have heard once of an In
scription upon a tombstone that ran some
thing like this : "I was well , I thought lo
bo belter ; I look medicine , and here I lie/ '
( Laughter and applause , ) Our demociatic
friends have passed a tariff bill that
Is approved , so far as I can learn ,
by six democratic senators and by
nobody else. ( Laughter. ) Mr. Cleveland has
repudiated It , and has declared It Involvts
perfidy and dishonor , that It wus so shame
ful In Its character and Influences that he
would not even put bis name to It. All
the leading democratic papers In the coun
try have condemned It-both of the old
stalwart variety and of the mugwump va
riety. The democratic chairman of tlie
ways and means committee has condemned
It , and Hie- entire demociatic majority in
the house of representatives condemned it
Now that Is a great misfortune. U Is a
misfortune that the democratic party vvaa
not able to evolve a tariff bill that the
party would accept as a settlement of the
tariff question Hit It Is not accepted as
a settlement Already WP have a proclama
tion from Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Wilson
that this Is only the beginning of tlie cru
sade against American Industries. Now that
Is a great misfortune. If we could have
been told by our democratic friends that
wo were at the bottom of the well , dark
damp nnd dismal as It is , ive would have
begun , to look up to see whether we couU1
not llnd some star ot hope We woulc
have begun to annolnt our bruises and try
to build some scaffold by which wo might
climb out llut we arc told there are
lower depths yet In store for us And so
this country Is to be held In n state of
suspense. It can be ended In Juat one
way. and that Is. by overwhelming republican
victories In November. ( Great applause. )
When New York Rives Lovl P Morton
75000 majority ( applause ) and Indiana her
btate ticket 25,000 , ( applause ) and Illinois
and those states who have wavered full
again Into line , und the next congress Is
republican , there will be an atsiirance that
we have found the end of this dlsastious
condition. ( Cheers. )
I think the Ohio democrats the other day
declared all these disasters of which -we speak
cama upon the country under the McKinley
bill Well , to bo sure , the McKinley bill vvas
a law until that 21th day was if ot August ,
when the Gorman b U was passed. It had
been arrested We bid been listening from
day to day lo the prophecies thai In two
weeks , or in three or four , It would bo re
pealed. It was not a law In a sense that any
merchant or manufacturer could act upon It
It wan dead In n business sense though allvo
on the statute book. Why , sir. It would be
Just about as reasonable to complain of a
man who had been nncstcd , handcuffed and
locked ui In a cell for mt surinort'ng. hi
family a to complain that Hid McKinley bll
dirt not filvo prosperity during HI'S period o

General llarrUan then made a neat speech ,
presenting Ouvernor McKinley. ,
Gov rnor McKinley cpaned uili | an eulogis
tic reference to tha admliiUlratlon of I'resl-
dent Harrlton under wliU-h the country
pro pered ts It had never iircipered before
j or since. Mora manufactures made by
American workmen , more of the products of

In exchange for foreign gold or have since
been exported. Men found employment with
out difficulty and wages wcro good. Peace
and prosperity were In the land , Slnco that
day In Novmber , 1S92 , when President Harri

the administrative and executive cilice's of
the national government a change has oc
curred. Every one of the conditions which
then exist d has been altered and the nation
has learned by bitter experience a lesson In
Die practical apptlcallon of politics which
the people have liad an abundance of lime
to t ponder over , for they have not had much

As an evidence ( lint the i , ople arc not

tlie t cl ctlon returns of 1802' and those ot

event of morling the opposition , which Is
Inevitable , to bolt. They hive even gone KO
far as to hire nnothe- hull for the purposd
of meeting and nominating n straight ticket.
One ot HIEprlnc arguments urged agalnbt
fusion is that tic d-jmourits , while ore r one-
half as Mrung as the papuhsts , got nothing
out of U Thi-y point tu Daaver's ' reftisnl to

down of llobin&on , anj to the fact that the
populists luvo a full biate ticket In the field
without ( hnuliig : i diafioa tlon to pill tiny of
the candidates off. This nipins , they sav ,
that the democrats hnvu to merge their
Identity Intn that of the populists , and with
n "we-a-e-dtmocruts" sort of look they nay
that this Is unfair ; that they would be will
ing to tuxo T democracy was to get any
thing out of It. Iliis argument is being u-cd
for all It Is worth , lrt Judging by the ef
fects dlspla > ud. It Is having no effect.
The prevailing sentiment among the fuslon-
I l8 iceins to be tlmt It wosld bo the proper
thing to bi-Rln Ith Elolcomb and nomlnHto
the ent re pnpnlbt ticket until the office o (
slate treasurer Is reached Then a halt should
be called and a straight democratic candidate
put In the field , liils Is because the populist
candidate Is co.ifesscdty weak , vvhtlo the re
publican candidate Is ml looked upon as
being- able to poll the 'nil republican \ote on
account of li's imnlpulntlon of the permanent

ho has bec-n connected with since being

Is a hope that In case the democrats < lo nom
inate the populist state ticket , with the ex
ception of I'uwers , candidate for treasurer ,
he tan be Induced to withdraw. No one
setms able > to give u reason for this belief ,
but the belief Is sirontf. Tim treasuryshlp Is
conceded to be the moat linpoitant minor

should be allowed to name the man for that
U Is known that a delegutlon of free silver
mon had a conference with the populist con

to pull out of the race In favor of Iloyd. Some
of the men who are opposing fusion claim
that If Heaver will withdraw- and give democ

no disposition to draw out of the race.
