General Chalmers Republican Nominee for
Governor of Mississippi Throws up
the Sponge In Disgust.
Manchester N. H. October 8. The in-
ternational excursion party last night for
the first time in the experience of many of
the delegates and attaches of the interna-
tional American congress slept in the cars
of a spt ciul train. The special train re-
'mained in the Boston and Maine railroad
'station until 2 a. m. when it was run slow-
ly and without jolting to Manchester and
the members of the party opened their
eyes in the state of New Hampshire the
seventh of great American commonwealths
which they have seen.
The weatber was delightful at the station
where Senator Blair Reagan Varney
Messrs. Carpenter Blood and others rep-
resenting the great corporation of Man-
chester met the excursionists.
These gentleman cordially wel-
comed the congress and in carriages the
guests were driven through the business
part of the town. There was much inter-
st to the foreigners in the ride. Immense
buildings devoted to the manufacture of
fabrics excited the liveliest interest. Here
were the greatest shops in the world ac-
cording to statements made by members of
the committee who added that one of the
mills consumed more cotton
and indigo than any other concern
in all Christendom. The foreign
visitors heard with amazement that in this
comparatively small city half a million
spindles were whirling and 144000 looms
were weaving miles per day of fabrics of
After looking over the factories the party
was escorted to the new mill where in one-
lialf of a great ball 400x100 teet had been
arranged a display of textile and other
goods produced in Manchester in half of
one working day. It made a most formid-
able showing in its extent and was
moreover arranged so as to make a most
attractive exhibition ranging from Tnloeks
of spruce wood and raw cotton to pitchers
water coolers etc. of indurated wood tibre
and tine paper pretty checked and striped
cloths needles etc. When the exhibit had
' been duly examined the party were seated
at luncheon furnished by the citizens and
shortly after noon left Manchester on their
way to Portland Me.
He Backs Out of the Race for Governor on
the Republican Ticket.
New Yokk October 8. A New Orleans
special says Capt. A. T. Wimberly col-
lector of internal revenue received a letter
yesterday from Gen. James R. Chalmers
who was nominated by the Mississippi re-
publicans for governor. It contains his
reported withdrawal from the contest
together with Judge Frazer who was the
republican candidate for attorney-general.
Following is the letter:
Saudis Miss' October 6 18S9. Dear
Wimberly: At West Point the door of the
court house was locked against us and we
could not have any hall in town and as I
am too feeble to speak in the open air I did
not speak. At the same place I received a
strong appeal from the leading negroes at
Columbus and also from some democratic
personal friends advising me not to make
any appointment there. 1 went toOkalona
and the use of the court liou.se
was again refused. but Burkett
rented me bis hall but the right before I
was to speak a military company went
parading and veiling over the streetsand
the next moriiing early Capt. Tom Bur-
chard "old greenbacker and now demo-
crat" and Judge Frazer came and urged
me not to speak or the killing of negroes
would commence and they would charge
it to nie. Dr. Tudali and Capt.
Burkett urged me not to speak. I
asked them to put their statements
in writing which they did and I then an-
nounced that if mv republican friends did
not wish me to speak 1 would resign my
nomination and go home. I did so and
Frazer dia also. Yours truly
Jas. K. Chalmers.

The Atchison Road.
Boston October 8. Ei-President Strong
ofthe Atchison road says that the re
organization plan as it has been outlined
strikes him as a very equitable arrange
ment and he expresses the sincere hope
that it may be successful. Inquiry among
some ofthe large security holders of the
company indicates that' they are disposed
to regard it favorably but most of them
before giving a pronounced opinion want
the full official details of the plan. The
same sentiment is expressed against the 5
per cent income bond many holding that
the rate should be 4 per cent or as first pro
posed 3 per cent n is stated tnat under
its Kansas territorial charter the company
cannot assess its stock.
Toole Democrat Certainly Elected Governor.
Republicans Concede the Legislature.
Helena Mon. October 18. The election
of Joseph Ii. Toole democrat for governor
is now conceded by majority of from 300 to
600. Carter republican for congress has
1000 majority. The democrats claim the
legislature by seven ; republicans will not
concede as much but say that on the face
of the returns it is a democratic
victory but claim fraud in
Silverbow and Deer Lodge counties.
The general opinion is that there will be
no contest and tnat tne democrats win nave
the governor and the legislature while the
republicans elect a congressman and a
large majority of the state ticket.
The Independent claims the state senate
a tie and the house by seven majority.
Most ofthe counties in the state will make
official canvas to-day and it is more than
likely that tlie results will be uenniteiy
known by this evening.
A Son Shoots Ills Own Mother then Cuts His
Throat from Ear to Ear.
Buffalo October 8. A most shocking
murder and suicide occurred "at No. 43
Main street at an early hour this morn-
ing. Charles A. Orris who resided
with his mother Mrs. Mary
King in the third story of that building
shot her while she was sleeping about 4
o'clock and then committed suicide by
cutting his throat from ear to car with a
The rooms where the crime was ' com-
mitted when first entered presented ajtorri-
ble sight. In a little bedroom about six by
eight feet lay the murdered woman dead.
An ugly bullet wound in her face told the
cause of death. After killing his mother
the murderer must have walked to the ta-
ble near by and hastily scribbled the fol-
lowing admission of his guilt on three
pieces of brown paper as they were fuund
in his vest pocket this morning: .
"I should prefer cremation if possible.
Please don't Dother oil.' relations about the
matter for they have trouble enough. I
hope my friends will not think the worst
of me lor this. I am tired of living and
that is enough. Mother could not get
along without me so I ended her suffering
also. So good-bye friends and may you
all be happy.
Signed J Charles F. Orris."
After writing the above note the sur-
roundings indicate he walked to a mirror
hanging on the wall and cut his throat
from ear to ear with a razor. He then
walked across the room and sat down in a
chair and smoked a cigarette while his life
blood was oozing out.
AN INFAMOUS IMPOSTURE.
The Mormon Leaders Taking Advantage of
the Ignorance of Their Dupes.
Salt Lake City Utah October 5. The
sixtieth general semi-annual conference of
the Mormon church began yesterday.
President Woodruff in his opening address
said the Mormon church had been estab-
lished by God and that no power on earth
could stay its progress. All revelations
given to the saints including the one of
polygamy came direct from God and not-
withstanding the trials and troubles
through which the Mormons had passed
the Lord would sustain all those who
obeyed these principles ami His revelations.
John W. Taylor commended the people to
give unquestioning obedience to the uriext-
hood. "These men at the bead of the
church" he said "have the spirit of reve-
lation and speak for God. I bear my testi-
mony tliat President Woodruff and his
counselors are prophets seers and revela-
tors. The hand of God is over this church
and no power can destroy it or impede its
progress. 1 believe in implicit obedience
in temperal and spiritual things. We can-
not retain the spirit of God and yet be con-
stantly finding fault with the priesthood.
We must learn not to judge men by what
we see nor on the basis of the limited op-
portunity we have of knowing what they
are doing for the people. We Hhould not
criticise the church authorities."
Others sneak in a similar vein. The
chu ch atitnorities are embracing every op-
portunity to keep the people in line politi-
cally for they Icar that with the loss of po-
litical power ecclesiastical supremacy would
be greatly weakened.
Topkka Kas. October 8. Articles of
union and consolidation between the
McPherson Texas and Gulf Railroad
company and the Hutchinson Okla-
homa aud Gulf Railroad company were
tiled to-day with the secretary of state.
These two companies are owners of roads
partially constructed and which connect
with each other forming a continuous
line from Hutcliinson to Kingman. The
name of the consolidated company will be

IMMENSE MASONIC DEMONSTRATION'
AT WASHINGTON A PROCES-
SION OF 20.000 KNIGHTS.
Brethren of the Mystic Tie From Commanil-
erlcs all Over the Country Austin
Washington October 8. The Knights
who were astir early this morning glanced
mournfully at a sullen threatening sky
indicative of rain but as the hours wore
away the sun broke through and dissipat-
ed the clouds and its cheerful rays were
reflected from the bright uniforms spark-
ling insignia and flaunting banners. The"
city wore a holidy garb. The days of chiv-
alry with all their pomp and display seem-
ed revived but the aspect of the revival
was one of peace and civilization not of
war and barbarism. Everywhere was bus-
tle animation and brilliant coloring. The
streets were thronged with people and
bright banners and mystic insignia decor-
ated the buildings in all parts of
the city. From the treasury building
along both sides of the magnificent
promenade leading to the capitol there was
an uninterrupted display of national colors
and insignia of the Templars. The streets
ofthe city were throniied early in the
morning with strangers and residents eager
to witness the grand pageant. The
Templars formed early in the morning at
their various headquarters and with bands
playing marched thiou;-h the crowded
streets to the place of starting.
Along the line of march stands had been
erected for the use of families and
friends of the visiting Knights and before
9 o'clock the choice places had been occu-
pied by the spectators. The windows
commanding a view ofthe procession were
at a premium and the ludies faces peered
from each at the scenes below. The avenue
had been roped in to keep otlthe crowd and
give full room to the Knights for the dis-
play of their maneuvers.
A moderate estimate of the number of
visitors in town is about 50000 and these
are nearly all friends ofthe various com-
maiideries taking part in the parade. To-
day the number of Knights in the city has
been estimated at from 15.000 to 20.000.
comprising over 200 comnianderies from all
sections of the country. The
twelve divisions of the procession formed in
the streets adjacent to the capitol and
debouching from the streets at the signal of
command liled into line and began to
march up Pennsylvania avenue.
Opposite the grand stand erected in front
of the executive mansion the beautiful
foliage of the trees in Lafayette park just
tinged with the gorgeous hues of autumn
rustled in a bracing breeze as the specta-
tors assembled on either side ofthe bro:id
avenue awaited patiently the arrival of the
procession and of President Harrison.
Although the parade was to start from
the capitol at 11 o'clock there was no indi-
cation of its approach at the
White House as the bells of
the city chimed the hour of noon:
at half past 12 President Harrison entered
the reviewing stand leaning on the arm of
Secretary Windom. He was followed by
Secretarys Tracy Noble and Rusk Attorney-general
Miller Gen. Scbotield and
Gen. Vincent assistant adjutant-general.
They were accompanied by Mrs. Harrison
Dr. Scott Mrs. Scott Lord Mrs. Hulford
Miss Sanger and several Indiana friends.
The entrance of the presidential party was
the signul for loud applause.
A few moments after the president's ar-
rival the head of the procession filed around
the corner of Fifteenth street and marched
witli measured tread in front of the re-
viewing stand where stood President Har-
rison dolling his hat in response to the
salutes with which he was constantly
Eminent Sir Mvron M. Parker with
forty-live aides on horseback riding six or
eight abreast followed by the Washington
C 'lnmanderies headed the procession.
They were accompanied by the marine
band which was the recipient of loud cheers
as it passed the stand. Secretary Blaine
who entered the stand at this moment and
courteously bowed to the assembled mul-
titude was enthusiastically welcomed.
DeMaiay Commundery ofthe district pre-
ceded by a squad of mounted buglers made
a fine impression. It was followed by a
procession of carriages the foremost of
which contained Grand Commander Ronnie
who deferentially bowed to the president
who deferentially returned the salute.
Many of the officers of the grand encamp-
ment as they rode stood oil the carriage
cushions while making their salutations to
the executive of the nation. At 2 o'clock
the sixth division company about one-
half ofthe procession was passing by the
Texas wus represented in the great dem-
onstration as follows:

IMPRISONED ON HOARD THE CARS.
A Lot of Chinamen En Route From Havana
to the Flowery Kingdom.
Special to the Statesman.
San Antonio. October 8. The Southern
Pacilic passenger train from New Orleans
this morning contained one car of curious
freight. In an ordinary emigrant coach at-
tached to the rear sleeper were thirty-nine
Chinamen en route to China. They came
from Havana Cuba where they were em-
ployed in a cigar factory. On their arrival
bv steamer at New Orleans the government
officials forbade them landing until it was
explained that they merely desired
to go across the territory of the
United States to San Francisco where they
had engaged passage to the flowery king-
dom. The Southern Pacific company was
compelled to give the government otllcials
bond for $250 for each of the Mongolian
passengers before the celestials were per-
mitted to board the train. The bond was
security that none of the Chinamen should
escape from the train en route. The ruil-
road company had the car Btrongly guard-
ed and the Chinamen are not allowed to
leave the coach on any pretext being com-
pelled to eat and sleep in the car.
