Japanese cavalry. Besides General Tso
Fonk Fai, commander-in-chief of the

Monkden. The correspondent adds it is
reported Li Hung Chang has been de
posed. Another Shanghai dispatch eays

lican convention called to nominate a
full state' ticket, was rapped to order
here today at 12 :40 p. m. Hon. Lem
uel Ely Quigg of New York city, was
made temporary chairman. Temporary
Chairman Quigg, in his address, ar

passage of the new tariff law, and de
nounced the machine democracy of New
York city. He said' the outlook for the
republican party in the coming election
was encouraging. The convention at
1:35 took a recess until 4:30.
The republican platform will stand by
bi-metalism, and condemn the attack
on American industries in the tariff bill
and its purpose of fostering the South
and spoiling the commercial interests of
the North, and condemn the broken
democratic promises. It will denounce
the income tax as a rabid and un-American
measure, violating personal rights.
In relation to the American Protective
Association, the convention points to
the constitutional provision which per
mits the free exercise and enjoyment of
religious profession and worship without
discrimination or preference, and rec
ommends its being ' strictly - followed.
As to the work of the constitutional
convention, the platform endorses the
movement to divorce national and state
politics from municipal, so an American
may express bis will in regard to city
government without the sacrifice of his
faith upon the political issued of the
day. ' .

STOPPED SMOKING TO SAVE.
But the Procedure Didn't Pan Out as
Profitably as He Had Expected.
Xerxes Jones determined to quit
smoking, says the Philadelphia Call
not, you know, that it had any baneful
influence upon his health, but solely
for the reason that he didn't feel justi
fied in spending twenty-five cents a
day for the weedy luxury. Jones had
a good disposition and began his new
scheme on Sunday.
"Seeing I've quit smoking, I'll put
an extra quarter in the collection box
to-day," he mused, and in the money
Monday, just to please his little wife,
good Jones bought a forty-cent box of
mixtures and handed it over with the
remark: "No, my dear, it's no extrav
agance. Just about what I saved on
cigars to-day, and we both can enjoy
this after tea." Tuesday Jones bought
a fifty-cent toy for his little boy out of
the cash saved by abstinence from to
bacco. Wednesday he changed his
dining place down town from a twen
ty-five-cent to a fifty-cent table d'hote,
feeling justified in spending the extra
quarter saved on cigars.
Apparently forgetting this Thurs
day, the reformer remarked to himself:
"There's that new umbrella my wife's
been talking about. I'll buy that and
charge it up to two weeks' savings on
smoke." Friday a new dinner set was
purchased to please the wife of his
heart, and set over against twenty
weeks' savings from tobacco, and Sat
urday Xerxes Jones spent twenty-five
cents for cigars, having- lost six days of
his luxury, and . figured up that he
had saved on the wrong side of his
books just about thirty-eight dollars
and mnty cents.
