The Democrats of Mendocino county are well pleased with the work of the San Jose Contention so far as heard from. In Mayor Pond we see victory, and an exceptionally good executive Not only are Democrats in this section delighted with his nomination, but old-time Ite- pnblicans do not hesitate to announce their determination to support him. Following is a short biographical sketch of our nominee: Kdward 15. I'on/.l was born December 7, hs;l:i, in Jell'erson county, New York, and is now fib' years of age. He received the usual academic education. In ISOl, at the age of twenty, he start ed for California with a wagon train across the plains. lie encountered the usual hardships and dannnrs of the trip. Ho settled in Unite county, then con- tninine hut. a small population, and en- KHKed in the cattle business and in farming. In 18."i> he went Kast and broutdil a herd oi cattle irom Texas across Arizona. On the trip lie ran (he gauntlet oi llie Apaches and lost iiiaiiv ot his animals. In the. fall of lSiK) he went into the business of merchandising in Chico, Butte county. Mr. bond left Chico in 1815S and settled in San Francisco, where for many years he was a wholesale merchant. Since then he has been interested in lanoinij;, manufacturing and can- nine; industries, in insurance and banking. Hi' is a director in several leading companies, having extensive and ramified I watchwords business. His judgment as a clearheaded and sagacious business man is relied upon by his associates, and his known integrity and honorable dealing inspire them all with the fullest confidence. In the multifarious business and private tranBnetions, extending through an active life, of thirty-six years in California no man has ever accused him of sharp practice or unfair dealing. His word is as good ns his i,ond on 'Change. Mr. Pond first entered public life in being elected Supervisor on the Democratic ticket. In 1881 he was reelected by o.S'.hi majority, while Blaine carried the city at the same time by 4.307 majority. The Republicans elected the other eleven Supervisors by majorities running up into the thousands. So able a financier did ho prove himself, and so incorruptible an officio!, that he has since been twice elected Mayor, first in 188ti and again in 1888. ion up to the opening of Colonel Markhum's ctiuvuss. All oi Colonel .Markham's neuspaper supporters iu the coiin- lios of (.os Aimeles, San Diego and Sim I'.ciiundino were clamoring a year ago for a division of the State. Whatever may have been Colonel Markhain's views on this question, it is certain that the men who surrounded and urged him as a eiin- ;il]y II llie altjieki tie iiihK-it HI tie.' h.'iiit of ! the ticket.

When he wrote those words he probably never contemplated that he would be acting the tyrant he describes himself four years later.

Waters j of San Bernardino was elected j chairman. After the appointment of Committees on Platform and Resolutions, Permanent Organization and Order of Business, and Credentials, tho Convention adjourned until 10 o'clock, Wednesday. On ro-aseinbb'ug the reports of the committees were read, and with the exception of the clause in the order of business providing for the. indorsement of a candidate for United States Souator, were adopted. On motion of Hon. Stephen M. White that clause was stricken out. The platform, which space forbids us to publish in full this week, expresses in lintnistak-ible terms the Democratic position on all current issues. Tho Democratic pledge of tarilf reform is reaffirmed at tho outset, and the Force and McKinley bills are condemned in fitting terms. Speaker Reed and his high-handed subversion of constitutional rights and tho iimo-honorod privileges of the minority are reprobated with emphasis, The reckless extravagance and partisan excosaes of the national administration tiro visited with a denunciation as forcible as deserved. The false pretense that tho Democratic party is responsible for tho excessive, expenditures of tho present State Administration is shown up in its true colors, and a pledgo given that tho tax levy for all State purposes shall not exceed 45 conts on tho $100. Upon tho silvor question tho platform speaks with no uncertain tone, showing that now as in the past the Democratic party is tho truo friend of the white metal. Upon the questions THE prospect that General Bidwell, the Prohibition and American candidate for Governor, will poll several thousand votes is not relished by our Republican friends. THE Republicans of Nevada county arc reported as receiving the news of Markham's nomination with a coolness that, chilled the atmosphere until they felt as though the snows of last winter had not yet melted.
