REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION.
Atchison, Kas., Nov. 7. Colo
onel John A. Martin, secretary of
the national Republican commit
tee, to-day sent out tire following
call: "A meeting of the Republi
can national committee is to be
held at the Arlington house,
"Washington, on "Wednesc, Dec.
12, 1883, at 12 o'clock, for the pur
pose of deciding upon the date and
place for holding the next national
Republican convention. The com
mittee will also elect a chairman,
vice .Governor Marshall Jewell,
deceased. At a meeting of the
committee, held in "Washington on
the 17th of January last, the fol
lowing resolution was adopted:
"Resolved, That the call for the
next Republican national conven
tion shall be so broad and liberal
as to invite co-operation, without
imposing any other tests of fealty,
of all citizens who arc in favor of
elevating and dignifying American
labor, -protecting and extending
home industries, giving free popu
lar education to the masses of the
people, securing free suffrage and
the honest counting of ballots, and
effectually protecting all human
rights in every section of our com
mon country, and who are willing
to support the nominees of the
The committee also fixed the
basis of representation in the next
natibnat convention and the man
ner of electing delegates, by adopt
ing the following order: The Re
publican national convention of
18S4 shall consist of four delegates
at large from each state, and two
delegates from each congressional
district. Delegates at large shall
be chosen by conventions called
on not less than twenty days pub
lished notice, and held not more
than sixty da3Ts before the time
fixed for the meeting of the na
tional convention. Republicans of
various congressional districts shall
have option of electing their dele
gates at a separate popular dele
gates' convention, called on a simi
lar notice smd held in the districts,
at any time within the fifteen days
next prior to the meeting of the
state convention, or by sub-divisions
of state conventions into dis
trict conventions, and such dele
gates shall be chosen in the latter
method. If not elected previous
to the meeting of the state con
vention, all district delegates are
to bo added by the officers of such
district conventions. Two dele
gates shall be allowed from each
territory, and from the District of
Columbia, similarly chosen.
The following story of the fate
of John Overton, who sold the land
on which the city of Portland, Ore
gon, now stands, has been handed
down by the Indians :
"After Overton left Oregon he
next appeared as a trader between
the Mexicans and Indians on the
frontier of Mexico. But having
outrageously cheated both parties,
the Indians 'shook' ,him, and the
Mexican government, for some
crime not xecorded, set a price
upon his head. He disappeared
for a long time, but one day a
party of Comanches came across
him in Texas, and immediately
gave chase. Overton was mount
ed on a powerful mustang, and fcr
a time distanced his pursuers; but
coming to a deep chasm, which
was about twenty-five feet wide,
was suddenly checke'd in his es
cape. His horse was now too ex
hausted to make the leap, and the
Indians being out of sight behind
a hill, he resolved to resort to
strategy. Dismounting, he pricked
his horse with his knife, causing
the animal to leap over the preci
pice. A large hollow log lay a
short distance from the edge of
the chasm, into which he crept un
perceived, as he thought, by his
enemies. The Indians, however,
had reached the top of the hill and
saw his last movements. They
rode up to the log and commenced,
for his benefit, a narration of the
tortures which they intended to.
inflict when theyshould catch him,
and finally one of the party pro
posed having dinner on the spot.
Overton's feelings may be imag
ined when the' proceeded to lightJ
a fire within a few inches of him,
beside the log. His position, of
course became untenable, and he
slid out, preferring to be shot
rather than roasted to death. His
persecutors opened fire on him,
and, desperate as the chance was,
he made a dash at the chasm. To
the amazement of the Indians he
cleared it by a foot. Unfortunate
ly for him, however, one foot
alighted on a loose stone; he lost
his balance, staggered backward,
and rolled to the bottom of the
chasm, where his mangled body
was found beside that of his horse.
The chasm bears the name to this
day of "Overton's Leap."
On the evening of election day
the Pittsburg Commercial Gazette
telegraphed to 13. F. Butler for his
views on the result in Massachu
setts, and asking for his pro
gramme for the future. The fol
lowing reply was received:
Boston, Nov. 7. 9 i m. To
the editors of the Pittsburg Com
mercial Gazelle: An answer to
your question as to the cause of
the result in Massachusetts is easy.
Last year I had 131,000 votes.
The largest vote ever polled was
in the Garfield election in 1880.
Garfield had 1G5,000 and Hancock
112,000, total, 277,000. This year
the vote is 313,000 of which 1
have 152.000. This enormous in
crease has been caused by the free
use of money, fraud and corrup
tion of my opponents. More
votes have been cast than will be
in the next presidential year. The
S,000 or 9,000 plurality of my op
ponent was more than lost in the
city of Boston. Massachusetts is
therefore surely Democratic. "When
a man increases the Democratic
vote from 112,000 to 152,000 in
three years is there atiy need of
an answer to your question of
what my programme will be. I
ana pleased with the result, and
would rather have my vote than be
elected by 135,000. In that ease
it would be said that Massachu
setts is a Republican state. She
has a large reserve vote, which in
presidential elections will come
out. Now we have had them all
out and measured them, and in
the next presidential election, with
a judicious platform and popular
nomination, at least we should be
to keep Republican men and
money al home to take care of
Butler, instead of sending Jjoth
into Ohio and Indiana, to corrupt
Benjamin F. Butleu.
Already, says the Port Town

Northern Pacific railroad is revolu

There was received at the custom
house here this week the invoice
of 400 tons of coal oil to be
shipped through to Victoria from
Philadelphia. Information is also
received to the effect that a large
amount of salmon and other na
tive products will soon be shipped
from Victoria to Canada, via the
new transcontinental route.
At a meeting of tho Irish Na
tional League in Dublin, on the
7th, Michael Davitt denounced the

The treasure searchers at Port
Jefferson, L. I., are somewhat
mixed in their dates. They have
found a jar, we are informed,
"containing 200 in gold and sil
ver coins dated from 1756 to 1S12?
The jar was buried during the
Revolutionary war." It was rather
a clever thing to bury money dur
iug the Revolutionary war that
was not coined until 1812.
