ed' whether, lie coukl ;say anything In
regard to the platform to be adopted
at Kansas City. He; replied:
"No otic can say what language will
Ix used In netting " forth the party
principle. '-' But some Idea cau be ob
tained as to the general tenor of the,
platform, from! lie plat form a udopted
In t bo state conventions. It is safe
to assume that the Kansas City plat
fonn 'will re-afflrm the Chicago plat
form, and will contain nothing which
can be construed as a surrender or a
riioditieatibu platform on old lsus.
This much is evident from what has
already taken place."
"Is there any trulh in the rumors
that a Vice IVesldent is to te chosen,
W hose views on the money quest ion
Will be attractive to those who opiios
cd that ticket In 18117" v "
w. J. RIl VAN.
Preshlene'y further than to say, that
1 assume that the candidate nominated
for Vice Fnsiteuti will Is in harmony
with the platform. ) No man. worthy
to Is considered J for such nil office,
would accept a nomination uou a
platform repugnant; to his views on
any Important -Issue.-: There Is some

a representative of the animal family.
aut the , reporter, yesterday afternoonl
witneiwed an exhibition by a refractory
horse that, for stubborness and irvcr
aity rivakxl that ever obwrved In the
mule. Tlie animal referred to was only
last' week brought .'to this city from
Eastern Oregon, having Just been taken
off the range, and had never had a rope
'or harness on awl whose freedom had
never In afty manner leen curtailed,
and It Is not to be wondered at that she
rel,cl!ed yestenlay when being Initiated
Into the .modem system of haMdllng
liorses. Tlie animal was purchasiHl
Hry a trusty at the penitentiary, whose
tetm soon expires. The animal was a
ileautlful chestnut, and no Inuierfec
tlens were noted, other than In Jier de
meanor. A rope had been placed about
her head, passing through her mouth as
an Improvised iiridle. The owner
nwUnted another aterd aud. attaching
the lariat to the saddle horn, lrtng as-
slted by a young man, al mounted,
attemp-ted to lead the mare, but she
refused to move. An effort was then
ma.le to drive the horse, but this also
proved Ineffective;, in spite of the man's
persuasive eloquence. The animal fin
ally dropped to the ground and roued
on ber side, and for a time It apisarHl
that she could never 1 induced to get
up. AfK-r consiIeraOk tea.ting and
pulling at the rope, the animal Jumped
to her feet and started down the street
at an astonishing rate, pursued by ber
surprised captors. The mare had not
gone far until she Jerked out of bef
owner's band the rpe with which rhe
was lieing led, and bow she enjoyed
iter natural and acenstomed Werty.
She was driven to the state icniteu-
tiary, where she was captured.
At n o'ckKk lat evening a bicye-le
