Every member is earnestly requested to be preoent, as matters of importance bearing on the conduct of the coming campaign will come before the meet-ing for discussion. . DEMOCRATIC PRIMARIES. They Indicate a Preference for J. L. Rawlins as Nominee for Delegate. The Democratic primaries were held in each of the five precincts last even-ing, and the attendance crerywhere was large. Considerable enthusiasm prevailed, and after the full list of debgates had been collected, those who claim to be well posted asserted that the result was a victory for Rawlins and the prediction is made that he will get the nomination on the first ballot. The list of delegates to the county and terri-torial convention is as follows: Wooley, M.. B. Bowles, Peter Johnson, George Cullins. Alternates A. L. Jarman, James M. Ken-nell- y, Thomas A. Williams, Judge Howat, J. E. Bamberger, G. F. Putnam, William Condon, Frank Harris, H. C. Reich, R. G. Tayeum. Delegate to County Convention A. N. Cherry, D. L. Levy, George R. Cushing, J.

Here is good Republican doctrine as found in the Ogden Standard this morning: The Poet insists that Mr. Cannon was nomi-nated for the purpose of catching Mormon votes. If Judge Bennett had been 'nominated we pre-sume it would have be en for the same purpose. The fact is the Republican party wants all the Mormon votes it can legitimately secure, and if the Democratic party is averse to receiving the ballot of any elector belonging to that ecclesias-tical rganization the Republican party will very cheerfully relieve it of any diff-iculty iu that direction. We want the votes of all who believe in the doctrine of protection, reciprocity and honest elections, and will not stop to inquire whether the voter is a Methodist, Catholic, Presbyterian or Baptist. No man is required to squeeze him-self into the corset of a creel to be a Kepublicsn, Its plutfc r.r. is broad enough and liberal enough to admit those of any faith, Greek or Jew, Protes:ant or Catholic, "if Mr. Cannon can se-cure more Mormon votes than some other .man we miy lit have nominated we shall only be'glad of it, and the fact will be an evidence oE the wisdom end sagacity of the party. There are a good many agnostics in Utah, hut none of them are burred anainst supporting the Republi- can ticket. If the Democratic party chooses to nominate a Catholic, an Episcopalian or a Vniversalist, we pledge our honor that we will not criticise its action on that account, or teek to create a prejudice against its nominee because of his religious belief or faith. Whf-- the work of party division began in Utah we pledged our faith in the honesty and good in-tentions of the people, and so far we have had no cause for complaint. If the Foxt has no confi-dence in the people it cannot compl:iin of a corre-sponding lack of faith on their part. Suspicion begets suspicion, like produces like and doubt is E reductive of doubt. The people of Utah cannot e intimidated or coerced into voting the Democratic ticket by insinuations so base, nor will such reflections on their integrity go unheed-ed. Men born and reared amid these mountains havea sturdiness and independence of character that will not brook dictation, and if the Post would win voters to the cause which it claims to represent it would be well for it to adopt a differ-ent role. Republicans believe in the divorce of church and btate, and in the upbuilding of the party in this territory as elsewhere. Creeds and religious faiths offer no inducement or recom-mendation for party reward. A new era has dawned upon Utah, and we had hoped teat the old argument were buried with the old condi-tions, and that with new issues the prejudices of the past would be entirely forgotten. The National Republican League. The Buffalo (X. Y.) papers are full of the great Republican league convention that met in that city last week. It was the largest convention ever held by that strong Republican organization. Major McKinley and Whitelaw Reid were among the speak- ers.

IT LOOKS AS THOUGH PROMPT ACTION WOULD BE TAKEN. Leading Citizens Express Their Opin-ion on the Important Subject To Leave the Magnificent Struc-ture Unprotected Against Fire Would Be the Height of Folly What the Architects Have to Say About It The Sentiment All One Way. A large number of interviews with officials and prominent citizens concerning the prop-osition to make the city and county build-ing fireproof were crowded out of The Times last evening, but the subject is one of so much importance that space is given to them today, with several additions. Of course public opinion is all one way. It could hardly be otherwise, for the folly of putting up a building of this character, cost-ing half a million dollars, and leaving it practically unprotected against fire, is self-eviden- t. It begins to look, too, as though the needed change would be made, because nearly all of the councilmen and members of the county court agree with the tax-paye-that the building should be made fire-proof: Councilman Evans Quote me as being heartily in favor of making fireproof throughout. If the change is not made it will always be a matter of regret. Councilman Wantland I am now convinced that the fireproofing should be extended at least another story. Councilman Moran At the beginning I was in favor of having a fireproof building throughout, but now. if it is possible, to do without it, I am not in favor of placing an additional financial harden on the people. Architect I red Mule I was m favor of hav-ing a fireproof building from the beginning, but the committee, who wanted to econo-mise, thought otherwise. - They made a mis-take. Superintendent Reed of the City Railway The building should be made as near fire-proof as is possible. It will be an ex-pensive building and ought to be protected from fire, no matter what the additional cost might be. E. R. Cluit It should, as a matter of busi-ness policy, be made fireproof throughout. Many valuable records will be contained in the building and every precaution and safe-guard should be thrown around them. Councilman Heig It must be made fire-proof and in my opinion the city could not expend $32,500, its share, to a better advan-tage. I am heartily In favor of the plan. Marry Duke, City Treatnxrer It would be folly not to fireproof the building through-out. The records of the city arc most val-uable and they should be protected by every precaution. Councilman Laxoson There is no doubt in my mind but that the building should be made fireproof throughout. I have yet to hear any sound argument against it. The change should be made and toe matter dis-posed of without delay. Councilman Simondi I favor the plan of making it fireproof. Councilman Bell We are putting up a fine building there, one that will cost a great deal of money and be a credit to the city. It will simply spoil it if it is not made fire-proof throughout, and I am certainly in favor of it Daniel Dunne Public officers should exer-cise as much care in a matter of so much importance as though it were their own pri-vate business. I venture to say that none of them would put up such a structure with-out making it fireproof throughout It will stand for years as a monument to our enter-prise, it will cost a large sum of money and will be the depository of all the city and county records. It will be a great piece of folly if it is not fully pro-tected against fire. I know that the addi-tional expense would not be great, and the saving in insurance will cover that in course of time. Thomas Higgins This plan of having a structure like the city and county building half fireproof is the most foolish idea I ever heard of. Let the change be made at once. Selectman Harvey Hardy Quote me as say-ing that I want to see the city and county building made as perfect as possible. tommies 1 think the build-ing should be made fireproof throughout, and would favor the plan, even though I were a much heavier tax-pay- than I am. Selectman John Butter The building should be made fireproof. If that is done, the struc-ture will be one that all citizens can be proud of. It will, in my judgment, be a serious mistake if this change is not made. Parsons I think the build-ing should be made fireproof. There is practically nothing gained in having two stories fireproof and leaving the rest of the building unprotected. The architects for the building, Messrs. Bird, Monheim & Proudfoot, are naturally placed in a somewhat delicate position on this matter. It is but just to them to say, however, that it is not their fault that the plans did not provide for a fireproof building throughout, and in all the discussion that lias followed, there has been no criticism as to them. Mr. Bird was found at his office this afternoon, and when asked what he thought of the pro-posed change he frankly replied that it would be a vast improvement to the build-ing, and he hoped it would be made. "The fact is," continued the architect, "that there isn't a building of this size and char-acter in the country that Isn't fireproof. I have no interest in the matter at all further than to see a good buidling put np, and for that reason I hope to see the change made." "Would it delay the construction to make the change?" - "Not at all, provided there is no unnecessary delay. It would, in my judgment, be false economy to let a few dollars stand In the way."

BOTH SIDES OF SEASIDE AVENUE ON FIRE. Though Sear the Ocean There Is Scarcity of Water. THREE WOMEN BADLY BURNED AND TWO LIVES LOST. Fire Companies From Adjoining Towns Hurry to the Scene of the Conflagration. Summoned Thither by Telephone I'nless the Fire 1 Subdued the Iamage Will Exceed 8400.000-Cau- se of the Origin Un-known. Rockawat Beach, L. I., Sept, 20. A con-flagration started at noon which threatens to wipe out a large section of this resort. Seaside museum, Folois' hotel, Meissmer's hotel, William Burges' hotel, Murray ct Dalz' hotel and the Grand Ocean hotel are all ablaze and will undoubtedly be destroyed. The whole population turned out to fight the fire, but the effects will be of little avail, as their is a scarcity of water. A fctrocg breeze is blowing, which fans the flames. The heat is intense. The fire departments of Far Rockaway, Lawrence and Woodsburg have been EMrumoned by telephone. It ia reported that two lives were lost. The fire broke out in the museum on Sea-side avenue, situated on the most thickly populated part of the beach, where there are all frame buildings. The flames spread with astonishing rapidity, and soon reached the opposite side of the street. All buildings on both sides of the way on Seaside avenue from a point near the site of the old Seaside house.which was destroyed by fire a few days ago, seem to be doomed. The Long Island railroad depot has been destroyed. Mrs. Bertha Kingsland, wife of the proprie-tor of the Kiugsland hotel, was badly burned while trying to save some effects. Two other ladies, guests, were also severely burned. The Long Island railroad 4s transferring fire companies as fast as possible on flat cars from Inwood, Caone-Par- k, Far Rockaway, Woodburg and Lawrence. . At" 3 o'clock it looked as though all the buildings on Seaside avenue would be de-stroyed. If this proves the case the loss will be fully $400,000. The cause of the fire Is not yet explained. ffl PARADE. r Illinois, in "Which the G. A. R. Firsts Organized, at the Head. SLOCUM, SICKLES, HOWARD AND REYNOLDS IN:RANKS. Eight Hundred Children Dressed in-Ee- White and Blue FORM A LIVING AND CHANTING STAR SPANGLED BANNER. Through a Lane ef Dense Humanity the Grizzled Warriors Passed, Mounted and on Foot, to the In-spiring Muislc of Patriotic Airs, in umbers Unprecedented in Any Previous Parade "Old Abe" anil Other Famous War Itelics In Line. Washington, Sept. 130. The feature ia today's proceedings of the Grand army re-union was the parade of the veterans. In, the eiirly morning the weather was mild and hazy; later the sun catnc out, shedding a, genial warmth, but the sky soon clouded, over again, aud a cold wind made it uncom-fortable in exposed places. Thirty minute after nine o'clock was the hour set for start-ing the parade thia morning, and long be-fore that time gTeat crowds had lined up against the wire cables 6tretched outward along the sides of broad Pennsylvania avenue from the capital building. Var-ious veterans' pOTts formed at their headquarters and marched to positions' assigned to them on diagonal streets on each side of Pennsylvania avenue, beginning at the west front of the capitol. The Illinois posts, coming from the state in which the order was first organized, had the place of honor at the head tf the line next to the general officers, and Wisconsin posts came second, and so in due order. Through the dense lanes of thousands of people who lined the pavements and side, streets, past fcuudmga lavishly deeoratud witn fluttering banners, festoons, flags and -- streamers, cheered on by fresh voices, hundreds of school children singing patriotic airs, grizzled veterans who twenty-seve- n years ago occupied two days in passing in review-alon-this grand national avenue, moved to--d- ay with thinned ranks, whose numbers did. not preclude the completion of the journey; within a single day. Then over rough cob-blestones they marched as mem- -, bers of great modern armies; tired, J dusty, travel-staine- d, war-wor- n, but with fierce exultation and pride born of the knowledge of their deeds and accomplish-- ) ments. Today, over smooth asphalt pave- -' ment, they marched again, still proud that they had been member of that grand army, but in the years which thinned their ranksy the fierce war spirit died away and left little behind but feelings of joy and good-wil- l to1 all men in THEIR GRIZZLED LOOKS and reminiscent faces one could read tha recognition of the fact that It was the last time many of them would free the national capitol. So it was that they decided to make this parade the greatest feature of the encampment, knowing it was a coincidence which could never be repeated. On- - the1 lawn adjoining the south wing of the-- , treasury building was a large covered stand named in honor of Lincoln on-- ' which were placed eight hundred school . girls so arranged in red, white and blue dresses as to produce a living star spanglee banner. Farther down near Central market, colored school girls were massed together on the stand, their melodious voices blending ham moniously in a grand chorus as the o A. sol diers marched past. The order of march was as follows: Cit izens' committee; old guard of Washington, as escort of commander-in-chief- ; Grand army, battalion of Albany; commander-in-chief- ; senior vice commander-in-chief- ; official staff of commander-in-chie- f; aids-de-cam- p to commander-in-chie- f; es-corts to Grand army; first defenders; Sixth Massachusetts, United . States Veteran Signal association; department of Illinois, Edward Harlan, commander, withr twenty-thre- e posts and about 1500 men ia. line gathered from all parts of the state. Next came the Wisconsin department, with more men than that state ever had before in, an encampment parade, headed by Depart. ment Commander uoionei J. ts. weuon. G. W. Sutherland carried "old Abe," tha famous war eagle carried through the re-bellion by the Eighth Wisconsin regiment Theodore Riel carrying the badger, em-blematic of Wisconsin shield and Doc Au-bur- y, the original newsboy of the Iron brigade, carrying a number of the identical newpapers ho had unsold at the close of tha war. There were tweuty-thre- e po.ts in line. Next came the Pennsylvania depart-ment with the largest representation in line. Then came the other stati departments, that of Ohio, headed by Com-mander J. F. Mack. Then in order cams New York with ten brigades, with Slocum, Sickles, Howard and Reynolds in the ranks ; Connecticut; Massachusetts, with General Butler; New Jersey, Maine, Californian, who came next, all mounted and carrying a crimson silk banner with a picture of & grizzly bear. Department Commander J. B. Falls led fourteen posts, and the ADMIRABLE RIDING of the men was the subject of general comment. Next followed Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland. Iowa, Nebraska, Michigan, Indiana, Wyoming, Colorado, included in one department and made a fine showing with thirty-eigh- t posts, led by Department Commander John C. Kennedy and staff. Then came Kansas, Delaware, Missouri, Kentucky. West Virginia, Arkansas, Ten-- . nessee, Lousiana. Mississippi, Florida, . Oklahoma, Texas, Alabama, South and North Dakota, with a creditable showing, and Indian territory. The procession closed with posts of the department of the Potomac and naval veterans. THE CHOLERA. One Case Recovering ami a Suspected Case Transferred to the Hospital. New York, Sept 20. The woman at Sandy Hook thought yesterday to have developed cholera symptoms is better today, bo that it is probably not cholera. One suspected case in the city was removed to the hospital to-day. The weather is very favorable, with a fresh breeze off the shore and temperature down to 69 at noon. . MES. HAERISON She Left Loon Lake for Washington at Noon With the President. HER HEALTH IS IMPROVED. The Trip Is Being Made by Special Train, and the Time Will Be Faster Than That of Limited Trains. Trot, N. Y., September 30. President and Mrs. Harrison left Loon lake for Wash-ington at noon. Mrs. Harrison being im-proved in health, the doctors decided her condition would warrant her departure. The entire trip will be made by spec-ial train. From Loon lake to Platts-bur- g the train will include a bassagc car, drawing-roo- car, and sleeping coach from the Pennsylvania due at Whitehall at 6:30, but will only stop between Plattsburg and Albany, and be at Saratoga at 8:35, after ten minutes for lunch, arriving in Albany at 9, the party will be transferred to the West Shore road, and at Jersey City the route will be continued on the Pennsylvania road. The trip will be fast, the time between some points being better than that of limited trains. - INSOLICE circles. A Very Petty Case Before Kesler, Judge. BURGLARS GETTING TO WORK. Sj'hoolboys of aXurfcery Age Arrested " at the Instance of a School Supe-rintendentThe Case Is Very Prop-erly IMsnilssed A Plumber in the Toils Odds and Ends From the Criminal Docket. Willie Budd and Harry Hopkins, prepos-sessing little fellows, charged with disturb-ing the peace of the pupils and teachers of the new west school in the Nineteenth ward last Friday, appeared in the police court this morning, accompanied by their moth-ers, while the prosecuting witness, Super-intendent Isaac Huse, was reinforced by Miss Jennie Prout and Miss Crosby, teach-ers, and two little girls, who are pupils. Their testimony, in effect, was that Harry had appeared at one of the windows, thrown fones in the hallway and yelled, and amused himself by turning the knob of a door three times. In his mischievous work le was assisted by Willie Badd.

To the Editor of The Times: It is but fair to the friends of Governor Thomas who were in the late Republican convention to say that they were taken at an unfair ad-vantage in relation to the withdrawal by Mr. Crane of the resolution endorsing the course of the governor in vet)ing certain bills of the late Democratic legislature. Mr. Crane, who is understood to be a strong friend of tha governor, introduced the reso-lution the evening previous, and it was he i i j i a. . . ... wno asucu leave we nexi morning to Wltn- - I draw the same, and those who had previously I voted for the resolution thought that there would be good reasons given by Mr. Crane and others for its withdrawal, but the mo-tion to table being undebatable the friends of the governor were taken by surprise, and many of them did not vote on the proposi-tion. In since talking with many delegates, I am convinced that there was no intention to take from the governor the credit so justly due him in the course he pursued in protecting our home industries against the vicious attacks of a Democratic legislature. Harmel Pratt. IN SEARCH OF POINTERS. Chief Stanton Will Probably Attend the Engineers Convention. The National Association of Fire Engin-eers will meet in convention in the city of Louisville, Ky., on the 4th prox., and a reso-lution will be introduced in the city council authorizing Chief Stanton of the fire depart-ment to attend. In view of the many im-provements that are constantly being made in fire matters, the visit will be of advantage to the city in more ways than one. Two years ago the chief attended the convention held at De- - troit and was enabled to pick up pointers which caused a saving of at least $2500 in the construction and apportionment of the present headquarters. At that time he paid his expenses, but should he be authorized to attend the coming convention a small ap-propriation will be made to defray the inci-dental expenses of the trip. . LATE CITY NEWS.

ADVOCATE WANTLAND. He Is Still Active la Behalf of the Barber Company. It is nnderstood that Councilman Want-lan- d will at tonight's session of the city council endeavor to have a reconsideration of the vote by which the report of the board of public works awarding the paving con-tract to the Barber Asphalt company was re-jected. He, it is said, has labored incessantly on his colleagues who stood by the people in the paving tight and has several of them on the ragged edge. As an advocate, Want-lan- d is proving a success, but as his meth-ods are believed to be on the boom order, it is not probable that he will be able to further the interests of those interested at the ex-pense of the people. m HE "IS FOR CANNON. Captain Tatlock Says It Is the Best Possi-ble Nomination. Captain E. W. Tatlock has returaed from Arizona covered with mosquito bites, but full of enthusiasm for the grand old party of protection.

He replied: "It Is a splendid nomination, and I shall support it with all the energy that I possess. I first became acquainted with Frank J. Can-non at Washington last winter. We were then opposed to each, other, but I learned that he was a cultured gentleman, an able man and an honorable opponent; I learned to respect and admire him; he will make a brilliant campaign and be elected. He will win a handsome support from the Liberal ranks. In congress he will have a larre influence with the Republican party. Frank Cannon Is all right, and his nomination means that Utah will be Republican," m The New Opera House.
