In mats convention und nominated K. I ) .
Owens of Coiad for scnanor nnd Wesley n.

the fight no doubt wl.'l bo an Interesting
one. The convention Indorsed the St. Louis
platform nnd heartily favored districting
the state. Marttnson , candidate for state
treasurer , and Judge Grimes entertained the
convention with speeches. The vast audi
torium at old Fort Sidney was filled to over
flowing tonight , brought there by the. Joint
discussion of the Issues by Norrls Drown ,
candidate for congress on the republican
ticket , and William L. Greene , the present
Incumbent. It was a battle royal and the
Immense concourse of people measured their
approval of the arsuments by their loud
snouts and frequent applause. If over there
was a man toasted to a finish Greene was
the unfortunate mortal , aa for nearly two
hours Brown punctured every argument that
Oreeno made and his record was portrayed
on the canvas of public condemnation -
OUD the aid or consent of the painter's brush.
Brown showed how Greene had absented
himself from congress upon several occa
sions when Important legislation demanded
his attendance. Drown thoroughly dis
sected the money question and showed up
the fallacies of the popocrats. Greene was
replete In funny anecdotes , but his stories
were old and threadbare. Drown made many
'rlends ' here and will leave I'lils county with

TRENTON , N. J. . Sept. 22. The repub
lican state convention met here today and
nominated Foster M. Voorhees us Its candi
date for governor. Mr. Voorhees Is at pres
ent a senator from Union county and In his
capacity as president ! of the senate has been
actingas governor since Governor John W.
GrlRgs was chosen attorney general.
There was only one session of the con
vention , lasting about two hours , aud the
gathering wns the most harmonious affair
jf the kind ever gotten together In New Jer-
ey. Attorney General1 Grlggs presided , nnd
ils speech , mainly devoted to national af-
"alrsvas the feature of the convention.
Mr. Voorhccs was nominated by acclama-
.Ion and as the governor Is the only Btate
oincer elected by the people , the work of the
convention was soon performed. The plat- )
'orm adopted Is devoted" mainly to state
ssucs. A paragraph expressing "faith In
.he ability of the national administration tc
deal with Incompetcncy" was , on motion ol
State Chairman Murphy , stricken out. Mr.
Murphy , who had presented his resignation
a few days ago , was prevailed upon to re
consider his withdrawal and continue at the
lead of the state committee.
The republican state convention to nom-
nate a candidate for governor was called tc
order at noon by Chairman Franklin Mur
phy of the state committee. Mr. Murphj
Introductcd Attorney General Grlggs as tht
choice of the committee as presiding officei
of the convention. The choice was ratlflcc
by the convention and Mr. Grlggs was glvcc
Attorney General Grlggs In his addresi
spoke briefly of focal state politics and tht
last presidential campaign. Among othei
things he said :
And In this latest time of storm and stress
In the midst of great perplexities and undei
Lho weight of enormous responsibilities , I
s a pleasant thing to be able to bear wltncsi
that our president has retained the con
Udence and support of those who aided ui
In 1800. And more than that , he has hac
the assistance of the advice and counsel o
many of the responsible leaders of the democ
racy north and south , loyally and slnccrcl ;
rendered without thought of partisan o
When the record of his administration li
made up there will stand to the credit o
President MoKlnley no more proud or gratl
tying achievement than this that ho ha
won and kept the confidence of his honor
able political opponents. He has had behlni
lilm the support of the American people will
greater degree of unanimity than any preal
dent since Washington. The party and th
administration which has had the respon
slbtllty in this war. which has given su < ? l
glory to our arms and luster to the Amerl
can name , has not been a party nor nn ad
ministration of partisanship , but of patriot
Ism. Our president , serene , patlenl
sagacious , sympathetic , great , has been th
nation's chief Indeed. What can pollttqal op
position rest upon In this campaign ? Ther
Is nothing but ucad mlc discussion left fo
democratic platforms. They may denounc
protective tariffs , but no one will can
They have nothing newer or better than th
Chicago platform from which thousands c
New Jersey democrats revolted. If that wa
a dangerous and alarming diversion c
democratic doctrine then It Is now enl
ridiculous. It has upon It the double con
dcmnatlon of popular defeat and preseii
absolute Inconsistency with every great oc
currence In our history since 18i > 6.
I do not speak of that other Item whlc
certain newspapers and others are trylu
to mnko the leading Issue' of the demo
cratlc campaign. Forgetting the glorj
the achievement , the success with which a
army of 200,000 men was raised out t
nothing and a hostile nation almost wipe
out In ninety days , they are hovering Ilk
buzzards over the battlefields and hospital
and graveyards , looking only for the miser
and suffering and death which are Inevl
table in war. Surely , the democratic part
had not been reduced so low In thesuppl
of proper subjects for political division ate
to need to rely upon yellow fever and y l
low literature. Lift up your eyes to th
heights where glory has crowned th
genius of American liberty points to
future pregnant with prodigious good to a
mankind ; to fresh fields for the extenslo
of American trade and commerce ne'
openings for the Investment of America
capital ; wider scope for the active energle
of American young men to more of th
American Hag for voyagers over the oceai
merchant shipping multiplied manlfol
In the harbors of the world ; with a nav
large enough and strong enough to enforc
our Just demands nnd the rights of Amerl
can citizens as promptly and as elllclcntl
au Dewey enforced the views of the gov
ernmcnt In Manila bay ; an army larg
enough to servo the reasonable requirement
of " 0,000,0(0 people without putting th
administration to the risk of quick an
terrible disaster In case of sudden war ; tli
maintenance of our foreign diplomat ;
service upon a footing commensurate wit

To Captain Grldley at his post on tt
deck cf the flagship Olympla on that men
orable May morning came the quiet woi
of command , as Dewey said ; "You ma

responded , sent forth death and destructlo :
but In the light of their flashes was re
vealed a new bopo and better life for mil
lions for whom theretofore the sun of liberty
and civilization had never shone except
through the murky cloud ? of semi-
barbarism and supiVstltlon. And to this
nation enters upon a new era. Do not
doubt but that she will be equal to the
responsibilities. I believe In the capacity
of Americans to govern , to govern them
selves nnd to govern others. I set up no
dogma of infallibility , but expecting mis
takes and delay and disappointment , I be
lieve that the boumllere capacity and the
splendid courage of America , with her high
sense of Justice , her appreciation of She
rights of man , will In the new
duties placed upon us work out
marvelous good for the peoples thut
have come under our guardianship nnd
greater glory for our country. And how
wo have been blessed already. All the old
root of bitterness betwi-en north and south
removed. What years and years of politi
cal effort could not do was done in a mo
ment when our standard ? were set toward
a foreign foe nnd the consummate tact and
grace of our republican president refused to
make any distinction between federal nnd
confederate , but put Lee and Wheeler side
bydo : with Kent and Shafter , "Yanks"
vA "Johnnies" nil keeping step together to
ho music of the union.
The convention , after the nddress of At-
oruo/ General Grlggs , decided to remain In
ontlnuous session. The usual committees
vcre appointed nnd retired for the purpose
f making their reports. The committee
resolutions , through Its chairman. Sen
ator Stokes , reported the platform , which
vas adopted with a single exceptloi of the
allowing sentence , which was stricken out
in motion of Chairman Murphy :
"And If by the misconduct or incompc-
ency of any olHcl.il their health or their
ivcs have been unnecessarily sacrificed or
endangered we feel assured that the presi
dent and his constitutional advisers will
make such investigations ns will bring the
offenders to Justice regardless of past or
ircsent political limitations. "
Mr. Murphy said that if there had been
any tncompctency in connection with the
management of the war the republican ad-
ulnlstratlon would rectify it without any
Congressman Fowler in n speech placed In
nomination Acting Governor Foster M. Veer
hees of Union ocunty. Governor Voorhees

Women who have suffered severely
nnd been relieved of their ills by Mrs.
IMnkham's advice and medicine nre
constantly urging1 publication of th ir
statements for the benefit of other wo
men. Here are two such letters :
Mrs. LIZZIK lir.VKiu.Y , 258 Merrimac
St. , Lowell , Mass. , writes :
" It affords me great pleasure to tell
all suffering women of the benefit ! have
received from taking Lydia 13. 1'inlt-
hani'sVegctableCorapound. I caijhard
ly find words tocxpressmy gratitude for
what she has done for mo. My trouble
was ulceration of the womb. I was un
der the doctor's care. Upon examina
tion he found fifteen very largo ulcers ,
but he failed to do me good. I took sev
eral bottlesofLydlaB. IMnkham's Vege
table Compound , also used the Sanative
Wash , and am cured. Mrs. I'Jnhhara's
medicine saved my life , and I would
recommend it to all suffering women. "
Mrs. AMOH THOSIBLKAY , Ellenburgh
Ctr. , N. Y. . writes :
" I took cold at the time my baby
was born , causing mo to have milk
legs , and was sick la bed for eight
weeks. Doctors did mo no good. I
surely thought I would die. I WP.S al
so troubled with falling of the womb.
I could not cat , had faint spells as
often as ten times a day. Ono day a
lady came to see me and told mo of the
benefit she had derived" from taking
Lydia E. Pinkhnm's medicine , and ad-
vteed mo to try it. I did BO , and had
taken only half a bottle before I was
able to elt in a chair. After taking
three bottles I could do my own work.
! I am DOW in perfect health. "
