stance is. that congress possesses the
power to declare forfeiture of lands.

should be exercised. Provisions of the

apply to that portion of the main line
from Wallula Washington Territory

. miles. ;

each hundred vouchers prepared and

. per annum. The account of 1878 re-
lating to claim agents and attorneys
in pension cases is repealed provided
however that the righU of of parties

irregular lees by claim agents.

New York. June 26. The Spirit of
the Times June 28 will contain the
following answer to the challenge to
match Jay-Eye-See against Maud S.
After Maud S. trotted in 2:13 on the
30th inst. J. I. Case issued a challenge
to match Jay-Eye-See for a race or ex-
hibition heat against any horse for
810000 a side half forfeit the decision
ground to be either at Hartford Prov-
idence or Chicago. The challenge is
especially intended lor either Maud S.
or Clingstone. The latter is showing
his best form this season.
Mr. Case further says: "If neither
track named is satisfactory to Van-
derbilt or Gordon I will allow the
choice to be determined by lot.
Meeting Mr. vanderbilt wnen the
above seemingly bold challenge was j
was given publicly we introduced
With much earnestness he ex
pressed himself as follows: "I have
heard of the challenge" said he "sign-
ed by the owner of Jay-Eye-See. why
he or anybody else should
have impudence enough to
allude to me or my mare
as a challenged party knowing as
every one knows I have invariably
refused to allow her to trot in a race
or match is past my comprehension.
I keep Maud for my amusement and
'am well satisfied in my own mind
she is the fastest piece of trotting
horse-flesh in the world. If she is not
the fastest she is at least the hand-
somest and most perfect. When any
one pets and drives on the road a
finer-looking animal independent
of speed. I will probably
dispose of Maud S. I have said on a
previous occasion that there are some
horses if they could trot a mile in a
minute I would not have them as a
icift for my private use. I think
Maud is perfection in everything she
Continuing the conversation in a
general way Mr. Vanderbilt remark
ed: "It seems to me that financial
disturbances now prevalent should
affect adversely the interest and at-
tendance at racing and trotting meet-
ings." The representative of the Spirit re
plied: "Quite the contrary ; there has
never been so great a public support
given to racing meetings as at those
recently held in tne west and south.
and the ones now in progress at Coney
Island and Chicago indicating tnat
people seek relief from their troubles
in the excitement furnished by turf
contests and out-door amusements."
To this Mr. Vanderbilt answered:
"Well after the presidential election
is over we shall have a return of con
fidence and consequently better times.
I know lots of people who are fool-
ishly converting their assets
into money and placing it in
their boxes in safe deposits
vaults where it can earn nothing
instead of investing in securities of
known value at prevailing abnormal
and panicky prices. Take Lake Shore
tor example: It earned a net tne nrst
six months of this year within 860000
of the amount earned in the same pe
riod in 1882: yet the market price of
stock is quite forty per cent below the
average price in loaa. its an a matter
of confidence. Why I know of one
instance of a man who has stored a lot
of specie in his house and had a .bur-
glar alarm attached to the sills of the
windows and doors and sleeps witn a
nigho s experience
on One of the fa
revolver under his pillow His second
proyed a ludicrous
family came in late
and not knowing how the burglar
alarm worked set it off. Out came
my friend with his pistol and bangs
away hitting a valuable mirror and
creating a panic in the household. Gh
no: l snail not use Maud &. ior
other than road purpose th s year."
There is really more d'gnity tnan
warmth in Mr. vanderbilt s remarKs
savs th6 Spirit of the Times "as Mr.
Case knows full well that he
has everything to gain and
nothing to lose by making
believe he is seeking to put his little
black gelding against tne queen ot tne
turf; for he must be well aware that
Mr. vanderbut nas set nis lace
against matching Maud S. against
time or other horses during her ca
reer on the turf. Mr. Gase mignt just
safely challenge Mr. Bonner s
Rarusor Edwin Forest. It appears
to us his actual motive is a mere com
mercial scheme to secure liberal offers
from associations for exhibition heats
by his horse.

The convention adjourned sine die
The platform adopted unanimous
ly strongly supports public educa-
tion invites immigration commends
liberal legislation encourages the
construction of railroads but de-
mands all grades of corporate pow-
ers and franchises be guarded against
abuse and held subject to the
regulating power of the people. The
tariff plank is as follows: We favor
reform and retrenchment in the pub-
lic service and declare our adhesion
to the principles of the democratic
party upon the subj- ct of the tariff ;
holding that the grant to congress
by the constitution to lay and collect
imposts was intended to raise reve-
nue and forbids the opposing policy
of the republicau party of fostering
one branch of industry to the detri-
ment of others and the promotion of
the interest of some parts to the in
jury of other portions of our common
country ; and we demand a material
reduction ot the present excessive
tariff duties and such a revision of
the laws as will equalize the benefits
to be derived from their levy
and collections; and that no more
revenue be collected than is neces-
sary for a wise and economical admin
istration of tne government.
Sections 3 and 4 hold there can be
no issues between the federal and
state governments in the exercise of
their legitimate functions and we are
unalterably opposed to any assumption
of power upon the part of either with-
out constitutional warrant; for which
reason we condemn the tendency of
the republican party to centralize
all power in the federal government.
We utterly repudiate and denounce
as most dangerous to the liberties of
the people that heresy which is the
enimating principle of "the republican
party that "the party is the govern-
ment" and believe the administration
of the government is a trust to be ex-
ecuted impartially for the benefit of
all classes ranks and conditions of

The platform was read by Hon. W.
It renews the pledge of fidelity to

founders insists upon the honest ad-
ministration of public affairs; con
demns the corrupt and extravagant
expenditure ot public money which
has prevailed under republican rules;

New York June 25. John Kelly
made a statement to-day in regard to
the presidential nominees : - " I am
opposed to Governor Cleveland but
only because I believe there are other
men better fitted to receive the nomi-
nation. I have been brought in con-
tact with many people both republi-
cans and democrats throughout the
city. All express a wish that Bayard
should receive the nomination. I
hope so myself and believe that if
nominated he would be elect-
ed. The opposition to Bayard
because of his so-called record is ab-
surd. In fact I think this (bloody
shirt) business is played out.

"Gentlemen of the committee; 1 did
not seek nor did I expect this distin
guished honor. I accept your action
not as a compliment to myseir per
sonally but as a recognition ot our
great business interests. I beg to as
sure you your compliment is appre-
ciated and 1 thank you for it. In ac
cepting so important a position I
have many misgivings as to my abil-
ity to perform the duties involved
satisfactorily and only do so with the
understanding that other members ol
the committee will not only as-
sist but give me the full bene-
of their superior experience.
judgment and energy In conducting
the campaign. It is my good fortune
to have known Mr. Blame intimately
for over thirty years. I have watched
his career during that time with in-
terest and have never known anyone
to be actuated by purer motives or
governed by a higher standard of
morals. His splendid abilities are
recognized and acknowledged every-
where. He is always on the Ameri
can side of every question. These
virtues and these accomplishments
account for his wonderful magnet-
ism and for his nearness to the
hearts of the American people. I have
not the honor of a personal acquain
tance with Gen. Logan but who. in
this broad land does not know his
magnificent record as a soldier and
his grand career as a statesman?
The democratic party must be held to
its record on free trade and tariff for
revenue only. Too many yet live who
remember tne languishing trade;
cent employment and poor wages
the burning of corn in the west for
fuel because there was no other nse
for it under Demociatic domination.
To vote for a return of
that condition of affairs. Our peo-
ple believe that reasonably prosperous
conditions are attainable in this coun-
try. .The working class especially
ask claim and demand that they
shall continue to have an opportunity
to earn such wages as will enable
them to live as American citizens
should live. With such conditions
and such principles as are set forth
in our platform success is assured.
Victory is ours in November as surely
as the sun will bless us with its light.
