The Republican State convention which assembled at Indianapolis yesterday was the most remarkable In the history of the party. It was tho largest and thoroforo the most representative. It was presided over by "Dick" Thompson, eighty-three years of age, one of the stauachest and most loyal republicans in Indiana. It was addressed by an Ex-President, Benjamin Harrison, who is recognized as tho ablest statesman in the United States. It nominated William D. Owen of this county to lead the ticket and this provoked another round of enthusiastic applause. Tho convention assembled at 10 a. m. Richard W. Thompson, of Terre Haute, was made permanent chairman and Charles F. Wilson of the Lafayette Courier, permanent secretary. Ex- President Harrison followed tho address of tho permanent chairman In one of his remarkable speeches. Nominations were called for and the chair announced the candidates for Secretary of State and aeked for further nominations. None wore made and the balloting began with tho following candidates in the field; Aaron Jones, South Bend; W. D. Ovron, Logansport; J. E. Watson, Rushville; M.R. Sulzor, Madlaon; Jasper Packard New Albany. The balloting resulted as follows, 858 being necessary to a choice: 1st. Jones 362 4-5; Owen, 417 4-5; Watson, S91 4 5; Sulzer, 320 4-5; Packard, 211. 2d.

An Incendiary BUio. The North street house had a narrow escape from destruction thle morning And UsJinmateB from death or Injury by flre which was happily discovered in time to avert a bad fire. About 1:3t fire waa discovered In the dining room of the boarding 1 house and an alarm was quickly given ai the engine house near by. Tho department turned out promptly and the flre was oxtlngnished before any great damage was done, $10 probably cor erlng the loss. The conditions of the blaze show a deliberate attempt on the part of some probably revengeful person, who had a fancied grievance to redress, to burn tho boarding house, all regardless of tho persons sleeping therein. It was discovered that coal oil had been poured in several places upon the carpet in the dining, room to which tire had been applied in three places. Timely discovery of the incipient flames alone prevented what might else have been a fatal blazo, as the frame structure would have burned rapidly had the fire gained considerable headway. Wm. Wagner, the proprietor of the house, is satisfied of the Incendiary origin of tho fire and a strong effort will be made to apprehend the fire bug. HON. W. D. OWEN. For Auditor of State, A. C. Bailey, of Lebanon, Boone county, was nominated on the third ballot. For Treasurer of State, F. J. Scholty, of Evansvillo, Vanderberg county, was nominated on the first ballot.

ISDIANAPOLIS, April 25. — Toralln- •on's hall roeohoed with resounding cheers when J. K. Uowdy at 10 a. m. called to order the state republican convention. The hall, which has a national reputation from the fact that many memorable conventions ho,vo been held under its roof, was appropriately decorated with party mottoes, und a band rendered patriotic musio while the delegates were assembling. It was the largest convention ever held in Indiana and 1,711! delegates tilled the lower floor of Tomlinson halL Tho gallery on the right was reserved for the laiies,and there were hundreds of them present. -The left galleries were occupied by the general public, and when the convention waa called to order there were 0,000 people present. Ovation for Thompson. When the venerable presiding officer, •x-Secretary of the Navy Richard W. Thompson, of .Terro Haute, came on the stage from tho rear, in company with Charles W. Fairbanks, the convention cheered him lustily. He was escorted to a seat next to Chairman Gowdy. The report of the committee on credentials and permanent oreanuwtjon, KICIIAltn W. THOMPSON'. present congress, should govern." Wh en Chairman Thompson aroso to address the convention ho received an ovation, and it was several minutes before he could proceed. Ex-Secretary Thompson, in his speech, said that his work was nearly douo—that ho is no lonper a boy. Ho urged tlio state republicans to work zealously for success in November, advocated a protective tariff and deplored the present condition of affairs, anj charged it to the misgovernrnent of the party now in power. Kx-Proildont JliirrUun Spflllkrt. Pandemonium followed the appearance of ex-Presiden t Harrison, who fol- j lowed Mr. Thompson. Hats and handkerchiefs were waved atid the audience arose to its feet amid cheers. ID his ppeeoh Gen. Harrison paid a tribute to Presiding Officer Thompson, lie said: "Mr. President, my venerable and honored friend: I congratulate you; I congratulate tho republicans or .Indiana that you are permitted tin thin hopeful day to preside over a gathering of tho republicans ot this great stale. You havo buttled for tho principles of tho party for many years: you have been tho able, dauntless champion of those b *reat principles which cullud the party into existence and which have won for it HO often and through a series of such brilliant years of administration tho confidence of the people. Great Republican Awilkeiilue. j "As you navo been faithful to Iho party In Iho houn of weaUnoHS and darkness wo arc glad that you are hero this morning when the country Is uwalumod to the fact that a restoration of republican principles In administration Is essential to the prosperity and happiness of the people. "To you, my trlcnds, I como this morning with an aciwiowled^tiient of my grateful obllga- tlons for tlieso undeserved and accumulated favors which jipu havo heaped upon mo. I will not undertake this morning, It would bo Inappropriate, any full discussion of republican principles. I v;lll nul stand Lotwruu you and the Important work winch you havo assembled to do, and which you are eager to bo about At Homo time during tlio campaign which so auspiciously opens to-day—if It bo the pleasure of my follow citizens—I shall hold my. Bolt at their service for a fuller discussion. 1 cannot allow, as I navo aafd before, that an ex-president has lost his citizenship. Nor can 1 admit that a calm and temperate discussion of great public question! Is undlgnttlod in any man. Wo have had, beginning with those years whnn, as a champion of whig principles, Col. Thompson spoke to us fellow citizens of Indiana down to the laai national campaign, a continuous debate upon tho Question of the tariff. The poo- pio havo now accepted one view of the question, and now turning, have adopted the other. The debate seemed to hnvo worn !Uelf out. Even your silvery eloquence, air, was hardly equal to stirring great lntere»t In tho question. Our people became so prosperous, SD rich: labor wan so universally employed at good wages that men ceased to appreciate tho danger and the disaster that waa involved In an abandonment of the protection principle!. No orator waa equal to the task of maintaining their Interest Taught by Experience. "What the orator and the pamphleteer could not do, a bitter experience that has intruded Itself Into every homo and Into many brought starvation has done and Is doing today. Our friends may endeavor to persuade the American people, that this period o( depression IB only one or tho» periodic panic* that they nay at Intervals, more or leu certain, ' -'- - " upon vii. Some mar endeavor W persuade you inni rue iuuueui.es tutu, 110.10 brouKht It about wore climatic or selsmitic. But i believe J do not yuuo H too strongly when I say that tho common mind—the close observation of those who are educated and In- etruoted by facts rather than given to refined theories—has settled upon the cause of this present disastrous depression. They find that cause in the attempt to wipe oul protective legislation and to substitute forlt th« doctrines or a revenue tariff. They II nd It in that uncertainty w-hluh has Intruded itself into every man's business enterprises, which baa paralyzed his energies and which has com- polled the wheels to stop while this great Issue was being concluded. The American workman it realizing to day lhat It Is not posslblt for him. to separate himself In Intereit from the manufacturer who employs him: that be cannot listen to the wild and vicious ap- pealy which have been made to him to strlUo at the men who give employment to labor without bringing the blow back in recoil upon himself and bis family. The times aro full of unrest, disaster and apprehension. I believe to-day that all tho tumult of this -wild sea would bo stilled as by tho voice of omnipotence If the great Industrial and commercial classes of this country could know to-day that there I would ho no attempt to strike down protection In American legislation." The reiport of the committee on credentials was then read and adopted. Tlie Platform. Tho committee on resolutions reported tho following platform, which was adopted. A syuopis is as follows: The platform reaffirms the platform and principles of the republican party; expresses prldo In tbo administration of ex-President Harrison and tho congressional legislation of that period, and contrasts tho prosperity then existing with tho panic now, The second resolution commends protection and reciprocity and condemns the hostile nttltudo of the democratic parly to thoso policies. The currency plank says: "We bo'.leve In a currency of gold, silver and paper. Interconvertible at a fixed standard of value," and declares In favor of increased tariff duties Tram countries which oppose blmotaUism. Liberal F0ailon> Favored. On pensions the platform declare* lor a lib- oral construction of all pension laws and condemns tho present pension policy, also in favor of the stale soldiers' home for Indigent sol- dlors. Thostrict enforcement of all immigration laws is declared for and then an amendment to exclude all tho orlmlna and vicious. The Clevoland-Gresham Hawaiian policy Is roundly denounced, Cleveland's alleged bargain and salo of patronage, ofllclnl brokerage, and attempts to usurp ihe prerogatives of congre»s aro condemned. As to stato matters the platform condemns the reckless and extravagant managomon t of the affairs of the state which has resulted In higher valuations, higher rates of taxation and multiplicity of offices. The benevolent, educational and correctional Institutions of Indiana vhould be placed under nonpartisan control The protection of lives and limbs of railway employes, by state and na tlon'il legislation, Is demanded, Tbo closing resolution Is a denunciation of the (jerry- mander.
