Massachusetts Democrats State Convention. THE REGULATION PLATFORM. Great Knthuilaam for Graver Cleveland— North cnraUnu Demooratn Having Trouble with the Third Party Alliance men. nml Threateu a FuMon with the Beliahlleaiis— FciinRylvnnla Democrat* In Council—Aiitl-lllll Movement In New York. BOSTON, April 8.—The Democratic state convention lor a choice of four delegate to the national convention at Chicago met this forenoon. Three different tickets were distributed through the hall. A temporary organization was effected, committees appointed and a recess taken. lion. Edward Avorv, of Braiutree was, chosen permanent chairman and he proceeded to address the convention. The address was listened to with close attention. When Mr. Avery said the next president must he a Democrat there was applause and shouts of "Cleveland." Avery attempted to pro- need, but the cheers were demanded for Cleveland and given with will and a tiger. Then came a call for cheers for ,llill. These were given, but with a liberal mixture of hisses, As Avery proceeded to draw the ideal candidate the convention was quick to recognize the portrait of Cleveland, and there were repeated cries of Cleveland!" and loud and continued ation of the state ticket until August, in order to make the Alliance men show their hand on May 18. The committee decided not to do this, and then indorsed the letter of Chairman Smith and adjourned. It was declared that the more time there was the better it would be for the Alliance people and the greater would be their number of delegates in the various conventions. The only remedy was to use the plan laid down by Chairman Smith, and in this way keep out the third party people and thus retain control In the hands of the straight Democrats. Some of the committee men were open in their declaration that if the Alliance pro gramme was successful they would leave the convention and nominate a regular straight out Democratic ticket or seek an Alliance with the Republicans and run a fusion ticket. Pnnnnylranla Democracy. IlAimiHmjno, Pa., April s. — The friends of ox-President Cleveland will have things about all their own way at the Democratic state convention which assembles in this city next week. Two-thirds of the delegates to the body liuve already been elected, and nine-tenths of these are enthusiastically in favor of the man of destiny. The balance have predilection's for Gov. Pnttison and other local favorites, but it is thought that they will fall in line anrl vote for Cleveland delegates just the same. As for Senator tlil'1. he is not in it, and it does not appear that his name has been broached by a single one of the four hundred delegates. kt 18Jc per pound, Peerless warp, white. s At 20c per pound, Peerless warp, colored.

Mail order Department Attention strict and prompt pplause. The resolutions in part say. For a quarter of a century of Republican administration the tendency has been to concentrate the power of congress in the senate, a body not directly selected by the people. The power to tax should be vested in the house of representatives, as that body is the voice of the people. The platform approves the free wool, coal and iron bills and a comprehensive hill making a general eduction in the duties imposed by the tariff bill of 1883, and by the yet more oppressive tariff legislation of 1890. We beliove in protecting the daily in-' creased revenue, |in protecting the daily living of the people instead of giving opportunity to a privileged class to acquire wealth. This is the clear "ssue between the two parties. There is ho hope for tariff reform but in the success of the Democratic party. We enew our declaration of prinuiples with regard to the coinage of gold and silver as advocated by our state con vention last year, upon which our party achieved a victory. We believe in honest money, the gold and silver coinage of our constitution, and of u currency convertible into such coinage without loss. This declaration expressing the uniform historic policy of the national Democratic party eon taiued in its platforms of 1884 and 1888, we unreservedly reaffirm. We believe that all dollars coined by the United States should be of equal intrinsic val- uo, nnd that all paper currency issued by the government should be redeemable cither in gold or silver coin, at the option or discretion of the secretary of the treasury. While we believe in the use of both gold and silver, as money and in the full rcmonetization of the latter metal by international agreement, we are equally opposed to the free and unlimited coinage of silver by our government, independent of the action of other nations. While, endeavoring to preserve our honored custom, we do not pledge our delegation, we yet declare our convic tion that the best interests of the par-| ty and country, demand the nomination and election of Grover Cleveland as president, and we are confident that under his leadership, the principles of Democracy will win a glorious victory The reselutions were rapturously applauded and when the name of Grover Cleveland was uttered there was great excitement. There were some hisses, but the convention was plainly in sympathy with the spirit of the re solutions. Sir. Thomas Keenan. of Boston, offered the following resolution as an amendment to the committee's report as follows: j Resolved, That the Democracy of Massachusetts in convention here assembled, heartily recognize the sterling worth and grand work of Hon. David Bennett Hill, in support of those true Democratic doctrines which have preserved the empire state of New York as the banner commonwealth of the Democracy of the nation, and that in his devotion and patriotism and loyalty to the cause of good government the people find an inspiration for the future welfare and prosperity of the country so dear to all true American freemen. Keenan afterwards withdrew his amendment. The resolutions were then adopted with several dissenting voices. Alill-HHl Democrat-). WATERTOWN, N. Y., April 8.—A pre liminary meeting for the purpose of organizing the opposition to the Hill faction of nomocracy, was held here in the home town of Governor Flower last night and was attended by representative Democrats who are in profes sional and business life. Resolutions were adopted ratifying the call for the Syracuse convention and urging the perfection of an organization to send delegates there. GENERAL NEWS. To-Day's Doings as Reported by the Telegraph. A F1QHT ON THE SUGAR. TRUST. Wholeanle Urocern nf Philadelphia tind Now York In n Fair Way to Hrlng the Big Corporation* to Ternia—fierlou* Hallway Wreck In Ohio—Caflualtten and Crimea— Other Matters. l'mr.AOKM'iitA, April 8.—The sugar trust is beginning to fear the results of the determined warfare which has been inaugerated against it by the wholesale grocers all over the country and especially those of Philadelphia and New York. The big corporation has so far coudescended to notice the movement as to offer the importing grocers of Philadelphia a table of rebates which they will be able, if accepted, to get a siriall profit on the sugar they handle. So far us can be ascertained, no deiinite conclusion has been reached by the grocers. The Philadelphia grocersare getting letters from all over the country to keep up the fight and that the dealers in Chicago, Cincinnati, New Orleans, St. Paul, Denver and all other commercial and manufacturing cities will stand by them. GEN- GRANT- North Carolina Democrats, NEW YORK, April 8.—A Rallegh, N C, dispatch says; The Democratic situation in North Carolina is tangled and because of this state of affairs second-meeting of the Democratic state committee was held here yesterday and was largely attended. The state convention is to be held on May 18th and the Alliance and People's party men have announced that they intend to control the primaries and elect delegates so as to control the state convention, and that they will adopt the St. Louis platform and elect national delegates who will be instructed to attend the Chicago conven tion and present a platform If it is not udopted the delegates are then to attend the Omaha convention and take their seats therein as accredited from this state. In order to prevent this Chairman Smith, of the state committee, has written a letter saying those who are in favor of this policy are not Democrats in good standing, and must not be admitted to the primaries, unless they pledge themselves by a resolution to Btand by the action of the various conventions. A pro position waa made to postpone the nomin- Amerlcan Wheelmen. NBW YOKK, April 8.—The final decision of the executive committee of the League of American Wheelmen to hold the annual meet in Washington from .Inly 18th to the 20th is likely to create tfreat dissatisfaction among members of the organization, hundreds of whom protested in advance that the month named would be altogether to warm to hold such an event at the capital. The action of the committee, however, was based upon the f net that to hold the meet in August or September would conflict with the Grand Army reunion, and that the latter would entirely overshadow the meet. It is claimed, moreover, that Washington is not such an extremely hot place i» summer, and that as a matter of facCvhilo the temperature is sometimes high the weather, more often, is delightfully cool. A Fight With "KiMtlors." OUKTKXXK, Wyo., April 8.—Late advices from a party of Pinkertons and cattlemen who left here yesterday in search of "rustlers," says that the latter and l'inkertons came together near Curtis Mills' ranch, at the base of the Itig Horn mountain, and that the cowboys were ordered to surrender and on refusing were fired upon by the detectives. The engagement lasted but five minutes, when the "rustlers" galloped away to the mountains, but were not pursued by Pinkertons us they are waiting for reinforcements. Three cattle thieves were killed and one who was injured was captured. The Pinkertons lost two horses in the fight. This story cannot be verified at present. Arbor Day In llllnolil.

CHICAGO, 111., April 8.—Considerable interest is manifested in board of trade circles in the government repor giving the condition of the winter wheat crop now in the ground, and which will be issued to-morrow. So far the trade all over the world has concentrated its attention on tho su plies left over from last year, while the question of the prospective crop has been largely overlooked. It is probable, however, that the matter of reserves will drop out of sight to-night, and that prices will be ruled by crop prospects here and abroad. In measure the fact has been lost sight of that the winter wheat made an un usually bad Btart, the December crop report making the contition only 85.3, According to the official record no winter wheat crop ever made so poor beginning. Whether the winter wheat has made auy progress since December is an open question, but close observers say that there likehood of the April condition being Log DlHuanded.

Doctor Penmaky, high Polish ecclesiastic, who was traveling through Koscieleg, was waylaid by four men, who were apparently waiting for him, and assassinated. A number of villagers pursued the assassins, who had taken to flight and finally brought them to bay. T 'he assassins made a desperate fight against arrest. Two were shot by their pursuers and the other two preferring death to capture placed their revolvers to their heads and blew out their own brains. The bodies were searched and on each of them was found a red ticket on which was printed tho words: Execution committee of the Polish anarchists." Dr. Poninsky had without doubt by his utterances or actions incurred the ill will of the anarchists and the four men were undoubtedly appointed by a central anarchist body to murder him. The affair has caused the deepest indignation wherever the details are known, and most strenuous efforts will be made to search out and punisn the conspirators.

FmLAEi -vniA, April 8.— A dispatch from Lancaater, Pa., aaya it can be Home Secretary Matthew*' Faculty. LONDON, April 8.—Home Secretary, Matthews seems to have a faculty of putting his foot in it on an average of once a month. On top of his refusal to listen to appeals on behalf of Mrs. Maybrick and Mrs. Osborne, and bis latest refusal, in the face of thousands of requests, many of them from influential sources, to reprieve Eggleton and Raynor, the Oxford poachers who were recently hanged, he has capped the climax in another direction by granting a pardon to Charles A. Perryman, proprietor of the Financial Observer, and who was recently sentenced to several months imprisonment for libeling a lawyer. When sentence was passed Judge Chambers told the prisoner that ho had aggravated his offense by committing a distinct contempt of court by libeling the jury before whom the case was tried. Notwithstanding this, however, the home secretary not only issued a pardon hut also accompanied it with a peremptory order for the immediate release of tip*., prisoner. Mra.
