Old Orchard, Me., August 25. Ex
Speaker Thomas B. Reed opened the
Republican campaign in this state here
this afternoon with a speech which call
ed forth the heartiest cheers from Ihe
people. Reed's main effort was to
prove that the "Democratic party had
shown itself Incapable of ruling the
country satisfactorily, not only to the
majority of the people, but even to a
a large minority which helped to com
Reed Bpoke In part as follows:
"In saying the Democratic party has
shown itself incapable of running the
country in a manner satisfactory not
only to the majority, but to a large and
respectable minority which helps to
compose it, I am not Indulging in the
language of partisanship, but in the
language of truth, known and 'visible
to all who hear me today. The north
ern Democratlo party Is In many re
Bpects like the Republican, composed of
men of business seneo and business
ability. The difficulty with the Demo
cratic party today as It has been in the
past, Is the fact that Its majority re
sides in tho south. The southern men
arc of Intellectual power, men of Intel
ligence and learning. The difficulty Is
that the kind of learning which' arises
from a thorough knowledge of business
as It is carried on in the north, is en
tirely lacking. While the southern
man may. have every opportunity to
read In the books of the prosperlly
which has come to the north, he has
no conception of It, as those who have
lived In it. He is devoted to the the
ories of bygone days. His mind Is fixed
urpn principles which were essential
tojjthe prosperity of his part of. the
country in the days before the war. t
"Whatever may have been done by
tho people at present In possession of
the government, everyone will admit it
has been done slowly,out of place, and
in such a way as to be of the least
possible service to the country. Tha
repeal of the silver purchasing clause
tinder the Sherman act might possibly
have been of some service to the coun
try had it been promptly and at once.;
The gentlemen in charge of the tariff
bi'll 'in the house understood how to lg-;
noi"e the varied Interests of the coun
try nd to mould the tariff bill not In
the in'terests of the nation, not in ac-:
cordan oe with the wishes of the people,
but in i accordance with certain theories
which t.olght fit their dream of ulti
mate free1, trade. Such a bill, framed in
such a manner was doomed from the
moment of Its Inception. It was not
adapted to this country, it was not
adapted to Its interests, It was not
adapted in any way to the situation In
v.hlch tho country found Itself. Com
mencing upon a vague theory that it
vr&i necessary to coddle certain manu
facturers at the expense of others, it
violated the' first principles of the Dem
ocratlo "platform." ' .
TO FUSE WITH POPULISTS.
Omaha, August 25. The Nebraska
Democrats held a conference In Omaha
today to discuss fusion with the Pop
ulists. The question uppermost was
whether the party can consistently en
dorse the nomination of Judge Holcomb.
There Is a strong sentiment among the
Jacksonion wing of the local Democ
racy favoring such a course, but the
Idea is being strongly opposed by many
prominent Democrats who urge the
nomination of a. straight Democratic
ticket. No decision was reached, and
another meeting will be held.
IMPORTANT BILL PASSED.
WMhington, August 25, While the
senate was considering business behind
closed doors, yesterday, there slipped
through an Important bill appropriat
ing' $9,000 to carry into effect the in
come, tax proylslon of the tariff bill
which' has been held under objection for
a few days. This ends all controversy
as to the preliminary arrangement for
collecting the Income tax.

.: ANOTHER BATTLE.
Flvo Hundred Japanese Will Lose Their
,'i Heads in China.
Shanghai, August 23. Seven Japan
ese spls in costume were arrested to
day and will be expelled from China.
Nobody will be surprised If they are
treated much more severely. According
to adlvces from Formosa, 500 Japanese
will be decapitated after being arrested
as splo. In order to raise money to
push 'operations tho government has
increased the transit duties on yarns. A
letter from Chemulpo, Corea, received
at Foo, Che yesterday announcing the
defeat of the Japanese force, and the
killing - of 1,300 Japanese soldiers, Is
much commented on here. If the re
port of the battle is correct, the Chin
ese cavalry in dividing the Japanese
forces In two parts, did excellent work
and displayed generalship of no mean
order.' ' .
KNIGHTS IN WASHINGTON.
Provleion for Ten Thousand Visitors
' . Has Been Made.
Washington, August 23. This city
was formally taken possession of by
the Knights of Pythias at 4 p. m. today.
Tho officers expect more than 10,000
knighU, for whom provisions have betn
made, and who will be on hand, and
today General Camahan called on the
the war department to ask for a loan
of army tents in case of emergency.
One of the most important questions
to como; up will be an attempt to en
force fc rule that the ritual should be
given In English.
An Important question is the exclu
sion of liquor dealers from the order,
and It!l3 predicted a constitutional pro
vision (for that purpose will be adopted,

Kansas City, August 25. The protect
ive reorganization committee of the
Santa fi hu. Issued a circular to every
stockbjlor of.he road. in.wUUib,. the.
Rcinhart management Is handled with
extreme candor. The circular Invites
all stock-holders to Join the protective
re-organlzatlon committee, and asks
them to deposit their holdings, in re
turn for which they will get negatioble
certlllcates of deposit In return. The
circular states plainly that Its aim Is to
prevent the foreclosure of tho Santa
Fe property, and "Inaugurate a new
and clean administration thoroughly

wise Identified with its present unfor
ANOTHER TOWN DESTROYED.
Santa Rosa, August 25. A report
reached here today that the town of
Guernvllle has been destroyed by fire.
Today was the warmest of the year,
and everything burned like tinder.
Guernvllle . is a lumber town in the
heart of a forest, and has a population
of 600. : All the buildings In town' were
burned except McConnell's livery sta
ble and the public school house. Dr.
J. A. Burns and Oscar McKeen were
killed by a fulling wall.
Chicago, August 25. The Northern
Pacific today notified all 'its connec
tions to discontinue sales on Its lines
on S.m Francisco tickets to Portland
via steamer to San Francisco, or with
the return portion over any branch of
lines of the Southern Pacific. This ac
tlon may possibly bring about an ad
vance in all rail tickets through the
Missouri river gateway.
HAS NO EFFECT.
Berlint August 23. Inquiries at the
various 'American consulates In Ger
many show that the tariff legislation
has thus far had no effect upon the
trade with the United States. No In
crease of business due to the Wilson
bill is reported in any quarter.

Butterflies Goes Through Spase With
tho Speed of a Whirlwind.
New York, August 255. The futurity
day at the Coney Island Jockey Club
track, was an Ideal day for a summer
cutlng. About 25,000 persons were pres-
ent. Butterflies was the choice by a
large majority, and 6 to B was the beat
price obtainable on her, closing at 4 to
Aftar fifty minutes' Uolay, they were
sent away to a good start, Butterflies
ahead. When the half was reached,
Butterflies had a lead of two lengths,
and Griffin was looking back and eas
ing his mount. Agitator, under the
strong urging of Taral, had come up to
second place. Around tho turn into
tho main track tbey' came with a rush,
and while Butterflies seemed to be
going easily, the others- were being
urged to their Utmost to catch the
fast flying fllley. It seemed to be all
over but tho shouting, when suddenly
the darkey, astride af the beautiful
chestnut, shot out of the bunch be
hind, ajid set sail for apparently an
easy winner. It was Brandywlne. Grif
fin heard the thunder of his hoofs, and
glancing back saw a streak of chest
nut lightning, with Clayton, riding like
mad, after him. There was no time to
waste now, and the clever light-weight
Jockey began digging his - heela and
riding for dear life. He,.could help hla
mount little, for she was tired now,
and With every, jump Bianflywlne'VaS

then his white nose was at her saddle,
and Griffin' saw it poked . under his
eyes, and he realized that he had to
ride as hard as he knew to land the
rich stakes for Gideon and Daly, and
win a small fortune for thousands who
had bet on ,the filly ho . was riding.
Inch by inch the colt, was, gaining on
him, and hq was straining his ear for
tho finish,, now only a few yards away.
A few mora Jumps and the finish line
was passed by a tired boy on a tired
filly, and the rich stakes were won by
a head. The crowd cheered, but It
would have been cheering the colt, If
the race had been fifty yards further.

which Is only 100 miles south, he would
give me a job as teamster. I met Laxe

me. We beat our way on freight
trains till we reached the town wneru

volvers and fired at hlin. We ran after
seeing we hud shot the man, and camo
buck on the return frolght toward tho

the coal car when we were discovered,
I heard some one remark "there they
are" and In a short time I Baw a mart
whom I presumed was a police officer
on the car In which we were. I did
not propose being taken by him, so t
shot him. After that we lett tl)e car
and started to run along tha jroads.
When wo were cornered in that corn

could not tell what we were dolpg.

we decided to make all we could out of
It ' We got i the officer's . watch and
