Seattle, August 31.—John R. Rogers
was renominated for governor by the
union Democratic convention on the
eigth ballot, at 1 o’clock this morning,
lie received 708,H votes, or 65a more
than the necessary mini her. The con­
test throughout was most exciting, and
great disorder many times marked the
oourse of proceedings in the i«inven­
tion. Rogers on the first ballot re­
ceived 633 votes, and gained on every
ballot until his final victory. He was
actually nominated on the seventh bal­
lot, but in the confusion and through
a misunderstanding as to the vote oi
the Walla Walla Populists he lost four
vot«'s intended io be cast for him. He
then wanted only 1 H votes. The
chairman ordered another vote, which
was decisive.
The unexpected turn of events in
Roger’s direction came about with the
nomination of Robertson, of Spokane,
tor congressman. This state nominates
both congressmen-at-lsrge. It was the
plan of the anti-Rogers faction to put
J. T. Ronald, of King, whom a great
majority undoubtedly favor, against
Robertson, for one nomination, and
;tius kill off Robertson, and leave the
way open to Voorhees as a candidate j
lor governor. Robertson proved a very
strong candidate, and led Ronald, and
vs the balloting proceeded seemed cer­
tain to defeat him. Many delegates
voted for Robertson, expecting to give
Ronald the second nomination. The
King county man had made a combi-i
nation with Thurston Daniels for the
other nomination, and he could not
honorably enter the second contest. ;
Daniels finally solved the problem for
King county and saved Ronald’s neck
by offering to withdraw. Ronald and
Robertson were then nominated by ac­
The Platform.
The following platform was adopted
by the convention:
We, the repieseutatives of the Dem­
ocratic, Peoples and Silver-Republican
parties of tiie state of Washington, as­
sembled in joint convention this 29th
day of August, 1900, respectively re­
affirm our faith in the principles
enunciated by our respective national
conventions; and we pledge our earnest
sapport to the peerless representatives
«if the people, William Jennings Bryan
and Adlai E. Stevenson.
We still believe in the Declaration
of Independence, and therefore hold it
aloft in preference to the imperialistic
jiolicy of the Republican party.
We oppose trusts and combinations
•which corner the products of industry
and levy tribute on the people.
We denounce these twin relics of
barbarism—imperialism and militar­
ism—whether iu the form of trusts at
home or greed of oouquest abroad.
We pledge our repersentatives in
congress to »work for the passage of a
measure providing payment for the time
consumed by our state volunteers iu
the late war with Spain.
We favor just and liberal pensions
to the true and faithful soldiers of the
United States, including the gallant
Indian war veterans.
We demand such legislation as will
insure to the farmers and producers ot
the state of Washington a reduction of
freight rates and fares to a just basis.
We demand tne inauguration of
«nch measures as shall give the people
the right to express themselves, when
they so elect, upon all important ques­
tions, by the system known as direct
We commend the official conduct of
all our state officers, and call attention
to the contrast lietween the present ex­
cellent financial condition of the state
*n«l the blight and ruin prophesied by
tbe opposition to surely result from the
ele«'tion of our state officers.
W’e commend the wise, courageous
and patriotic manner in which the Hon.
George Turner, our representative in
tbe United States senate, lias defended
the honor of his country and fulfilled’
his <luty to the people of the state of

Seattle, Wash., Sept. 1.—The steam­
er Senator arrived this moruiug from
Nome, bringing advices up to August
21. As she made tbe trip direct to
thia city, she brought nothing but
Nome news. There were 250 return­
ing passengers, many of them who had
made the round trip for pleasure. The
Senator brought about $320,000 in
treasure, $800,000 of it consigned to
various compuuies and liankiug institu­
tions in this city. The $20,000 was
owned by private individuals.
The recent storms at Nome created
terrible loss of life. Thirty-eight bod­
ies have l>eeu recovere«! on the beach
aud buried by the officials. Captain
Ricbaidson, of the Sequoia, which is
engaged iu the fishing trade down the
coast, says that 17 dead bodies have
been found ami buried between Topkuk
aud G<.lotinin bay, aud 21 between
Topkuk and Port Safety. The major­
ity of the drowned men are supposed
to be victims of the late storm. R. J.
Nelson fonud two bodies at Chiuik.
On one was fouml the address, 21 Third
street, Ban Francisco, but no name.
So far as known, none of the bodies
were identified before burial. Captain
Ram well, agent of the steamer El­
more, says that passengers arriving
from down the coast sav that fully 25
dead bodies, washed ashore by the
waves, have been buried between Top-
knk and Golofiuiu bay.
' Reports of drowning have also been
received from up the coast. Men who
have come down from York and l’ort
Clarence lately, say that without doubt
many persons were drowned. How
many will probably never be known.

Reduction in Wages.
Fall River, Mass., Sept. 1.—An
agreement is being circulated among
manufacturers in thjs city calling for
a reduction in wages of 11 1-9 percent,
to take effect September 17, affecting
all Fall River operatives. The signa­
tures of mill agents representing about
1,000,000 spindles, or one-third of the
corporations of the city, have already
been obtained.
The cause for the
seciecy observed in circulating the
agreement lies in the fact that, by
making the plan public now, stock­
holders oppose«! to a reduction at this
period of tne year might thwart the
plan of the selling committee and buy­
ers might discount the effect of the re­
duction and insist. u | h » ii a proportionate

Washington, Sept. 3.—Officials of
the war department are positive that
tbe soldier«« of General Chaffee's army
took no part iu the extensive looting
which followe«) the fail of the Chinese
city of Tien Tain. At the direction of
Secretary lloot, peremptory order» were
issued to military officers to exert
every effort to previut the looting aud
to puuish severely disobedience of such
orders. For this reason and from re­
ports which have come to the depart­
ment, the officials are continue«! in the
opinion that our men refrained from
disregarding the orders of their super­
iors. They think that the Chines«
themselves are responsible for much ol

Seattle, Sept 3.—The steamship Sen­
ator, which arrived today from Nome,
brought news of a briAal murder, iu
which the life of F. Scott Morrisou, of
Chicago, was as orifice« I to the blood­
thirsty savagery of Siberian natives.
She brings also lhe report of tbe
drowniug of Captaiu Gilley, a noted
Alaskan explorer, whose good or bad
fortune it was to have killed five North­
ern Indians some years ago while they
were trying to take forcible possession
of a vessel of which he was master.
Gilley was captain of the sailing
schooner Edith, which, with F. Scott
Morrisou and Edward Foregreu, as pas­
sengers, sailed from Nome, August 8,
for Siberia on a trading and prospect­
ing expedition. They had enlisted the
rerviees of an Indian named Sam to
pilot them to Siberian shores, where
they arrived the Friday following their
departure. That afternoon was passeil
in making exchanges with the natives,
who appear«-«! to be both friendly ami
peaceable. About 10 o’clock at night,
Morrison retired to his stateroom, and
a few moments later shots from ashore
were heard. The reports had hardly
subsided when Morrison exclaimed:
“I’ve been shot.”
His shipmates
hurrie«! to his assistance. They found
that the.bullet had penetrated the side
of the schooner and stateroom, enter­
ing Morrison’s groin.
A few minutes
later the vessel set sail for American
shores, but Morrison succumbed to his
injuries at «5 o'clock the next morning.
The next «lay, when in the vicinity
of Sledge island, 15 or 20 miles off
Nome. Captain Gilley went on deck and
seated himself oil the rail of the ves­
sel. A second later tbe boom swung
around, striking him.
He toppled
over iuto the sea ami drowned before
assistance could reach him. His body
was recovered.
Foregren assumed
command of the Edith, and, with tho
aid of a Sledge island Indian, succeed­
ed in reaching Nome in safety. Mor­
rison was a passenger to Nome on the
first voyage of the Jeanie, which
reached the district May 2. With M.
C. Anderson, he was engage«! in the
saloon ami general merchandise busi­
ness nt Nome. His widow ami five,
step-children, one of whom, H. C.
Heisler, accompanied him to Alaska,
survive him. Captaiu Gilley was 60
years old and a uative of the Island of
Borneo He had been a resident of
Alaska for nearly two decades. His
fight with the ludians, in which 10 are
sail! to have been slain, occurred at
Cape 1’riuce of Wales.
“Jack” Hawkins, a passenger on
the Senator, says tbe steam schooner
Samoa arriied at Nome from Sibera
the night the Senator sailed. In cross­
ing from the czar's domain, her pas­
sengers, composed of Russians, Eng­
lish and Americans, are re|a>rte<l to
have engaged iu a general row, result­
ing in the master of the vessel calling
for the United States marshal as soon
as he reached Nome. Hawkins did
not learn the particulars, though he is
incliueil to believe that there was seri­
ous trouble aboard.

New York, August 80. — Enlistments
in the army have been phenomeuai
lines the begiuniug of the trouble in
L'hina, say» the Washington oorre-
ipondent of the Herald. Young meu
in all [»arts of the couutry have flocked
to the recruiting stations, anxious to
receive military service in a foreign
country. The recruiting officer» are
taking their pick of applicants and are
having no difficulty iu keeping the reg­
ular army about up to its full limit un­
der the law.
Colonel Thomas Ward, the assistant
adjutant-general in charge of the en­
listed men's division, Baid that enlist­
ments in the army have never oeen ho
numerous as at present. This in some­
thing remarkable, since the recruiting
iu the harvesting period ia always less
than at auy other time of the year.
Then the young men out of work fiml
all they want to do on farms in the
West. The officers’ lists shows enlist­
ment for April were 1,274; May,
1,448; June, 1,647; July, 2,700, and
for the first 10 day of August, by le-
port so far received by the war depart­
ment, 897. This furnishes an aggre­
gate of 7.946 men fur that period.
Usually the same months of auy other
year have furnished hardly one-half of
that number.
Colonel Ward said: “Of the 2,700
enlistments for July, about 1,800 were
foreign service, of which about 750
were enlisted directly for regiments
designated for such service, while up­
ward of 1,000 werez sent to rendezvous
for assignment to such regiments and
those already in the Orient. The other
enlistments were for depot bataliions,
the aitillery, or for general assignment,
250 of which were made at military
[iosts for organizations serving there­
That the army is getting its choice
of the young men of the country is
shown by the fact that during July*o
less than 9,305 men who applied for
enlistment were rejected. The recruit
ing officers have been able to respond
to the demands of the various regi­
ments for recruits aud there are 1,115
men waiting assignment» to commands.
Myeterioun Affair in Which Two
cHgoMn« Participated.
New York, August 30.—John W.
Esson, or Essing, of Chicago, today
tired two bullets, one into the head and
the other into the body of his friend
and associate, Harold H. Stridiron,
and then, thrusting the muzzle of the
revolver between his teeth, »ent a bal­
let through his own head. The suicide
expired immediately. Hi» victim has
a fighting chance for his life. The po­
lice are of the opinion that the man
who attempted the murder and then
committed suicide was crazed by ths
extreme heat, drink aud jealousy.
The police have been unable to ob­
tain from the employes of the Hotel
Vendome, where the shooting occurred,
a clear, connects«! statement of the af­
fair. Both meu came from Chicago
originally. Esson, or Essing, is said to
have been u prosperous contractor in
that city. Both meu had been drink­
ing heavily. Mrs. Hayes, who claims
to have known the dead man in Chi­
cago an«l to have lent him $ 1,000 worth
of diamonds Saturday, because he was
in desperate circumstance», called on
the coroner today. The coroner'» in­
quest was unable to find any trace of
the missing jewelry. Mrs. Haves re­
quested the authorities to turn the
property of Stridiron over to her, but
this was refused. To a reporter, Mrs.
Hayes said that E rhou brought his
friends around to see her, aud soon
grew jealous. Mrs. Hayes said that if
he nad not lieen drinking he would
not have been jealous.

the backward state of tbe deman«Tfes
cotton goods are to be attributed the
shading iu raw cotton this week. The
season in men’s wear, woolens, has
been rather disappointing bo far, while
the jobbing demand for dress goods is
quite favorable. Manufacturers are
buying only enough raw wool to cover
orders foi goods ami prices are weak at
the lowest point reached.
