London, Sept. 18.-The St Jumes
Gazette publishes a special dispatch
from Washington in which it is assert-
ed that l'resident Cleveland is deter-
mined that the United States steamer
Bancroft, on her way to Turkish wa-
ters, shall enter the ljosphorus. The
government at Washington, the dis-
patch says, is fully informed of the
plans of Lord Salisbury, and if the
ships of the British fleet force the
straits of Dardanelles the American
warships will follow and preserve or-
der without engaging the Turkish
forts. Several of the leading provin-
cial papers, including the Leeds Mer-
cury (liberal) and the Yorkshire Post
(conservative), concur in the view that
the joint action of the British and
American warships at Constantinople
would be a magnificent and effective
The Antletam Monument.

Brigade association to the memory of
the 545 men of the old Philadelphia
brigade who fell at Antietam was un-
veiled and dedicated this afternoon.
The exercises were participated in by
the governors of Pennsylvania and Vir-
ginia and a brilliant escort from Balti-
more, many persons coming from a
distance. After the exercises Gov.
Lowndes entertained Gov. Hastings
and his staff officers in a tent which
tad been erected near the monument.
The Kluslve Cushing.
NEwroRT, R. 1., Sept. 18. If the
fight in the harbor between the battle-
ship Massachusetts and the torpedo
boat Cushing, had been a real one the
big $3,000,000 fighting machine would
be on the bottom of Naragansett bay.
Twice the little Cushing evaded the
searchlight on the battleship and
reached the point where a torpedo
could have been successfully delivered.

former premier, secured a latchkey to
the house of Countess Cellare. through
her favor. In April, 1805, jewelry

NEW YORK DEMOCRATS.
John Itoyd Thacher for Governor—The
Chicago Platform Indorsed.
Buffalo. N. Y., Sept. 18.-The delay
of the platform committee in complet-
ing its work was the reason assigned
for the delay of an hour in calling to-
gether the democratic state convention
for its second day's session, but ^l.tisi-
ness then proceeded with expedition.
The report of the committee on cre-
dentials having been adopted, the com-
mittee on permanent organization re-
ported, naming ex-Congressman Hosea
11. Rockwell, of Chemung, for per-
manent chairman. After Rockwell s
speech the committee on resolutions
reported. The first plank is as fol-
The democratic party of the state of New
York, in convention assembled, unreservedly
indorses the platform adopted bv tho demo-
cratic party at the national conventional Ital-
cugo on .July 7, 1898: cordially approves the
nominations there made; pledges to William
J. Bryan and Arthur Sewall Its hearty and
active support, and declares as Us deliberate
judgment that never in the history of the dem-
ocratic party has a platform been written
which embodied more completely the inter-
ests of the people, as distinguished from those
who seek legislation for private benetlt, than
thai given to the country by the national dem-
ocratic convention of 1896.
The remainder of the platform was
devoted to state matters. The plat-
form was adopted unanimously.
Nominations for governor being in
order, Albany county presented the
name of John Boyd Thacher and
Allegheny county presented the name
of Conprc-sman Stilzer. The galleries
cheered wildly for Sulzer, but the dele-
gates received the nomination apa-
thetically. Jefferson county presented
the name of Wither F. Poster, of Water-
town. On the call of the roll Mr.
Thacher was nominated.
Will They Admit Sound Money
St. Louis. Sept. 18.—The question
of admitting spund money clubs to the
councils of the national convention of
democratic clubs, which meets in this
city on October 3, is being discussed in
local political club circles. Secretary
Reedy, of the St. Louis sound money
committee, says that their organiza-
tion regard the convention as a means
of promoting the election of Bryan
and Sewall, and consequently the local
sound money club will not participate
in the proceedings of the convention.

United States Court.
Kansas City, Mo., Sept. 18.— Greer,
Mills ck Co., the firm "posted" last
week by the Kansas City Live Stock ex-
change for non-payment of fines ag-
gregating SI,000, and the decision of
whose case in the appellate court of
Kansas raised such a row among slock
Ienlers and the exchange, cast another
bomb into the camp of the latter yes-
terday by filing a petition in the United
States circuit court asking for an in-
! junction restraining the exchange
from "posting" the firm. The peti-
tion also announces that, as the
Kansas appellate court has decid-
ed certain rules of the exchange
to be illegal, the firm has with-
drawn from its observance of them,
and asks that its case be decided on
equity. Judge Philips granted the or-
der, returnable on September 28. 1 his
is said to lie but the beginning of a
bitter legal fight, which doubtless
means life or death to the exchange,
