They Get In Convention at Worcester This Morning. Worcester. Mass., Oct. 4 The democratic state convention opened to day in Mechanic’s Hall, with little of that excitement attending It which lor the past two or three years has been a feature of the meeting of the leaders of the party in this stale. The war ring elements were entirely lacking, and the proceedings were as a rule of j the most harmonious nature. This is : principally due to the fact that those | who still oppose the leaders now in I authority had decided to wait another year before again attempting to ffaTtf'j control of the party machinery. j MM» lotlAlA A tlA# IH ittAt, UhVi «. sA# GEN.

Dyer went Oh to Washington Friday afternoon to use every effort to secure a camps of vol unteer soldiers for Augusta. Not only did Ihey’secure a camp, but the largest camp and headquarters. In advance of- their arrival Is tele graphic Information l bat they accom plished the object or their mission. The Citizens should appreciate the fact (hat Augusta was selected out of all the Cities of Ihe South for the largest encampment on merit and should extend thanks to the committee who lent their energies to the securing of thousands of dollars to the city. Many cities had representatives In Washington for days before our arrived there, using every effort to secure the big plum. Their efforts appear lo have been or no avail as it now seems certain that we will, by the first of November, have several thousand men at the ramp be yond Monte Sano. Send Contributions Ear|y.

Our Tactful Commissioners. General Brooke. Commissioner Srh ley and General Gordon wer* er reedlngly careful not to dlaturb their Illusions In thl* respect and to their extreme tactfulness is due the ease and facility with which the negotiar tlons were finally concluded. The? decided before tbe first meeting to stirk to the main Issue, which was the ( Immediate evacuation of the Island, and lo be generoua to tbe point of magnanimity In minor and non-essen tial matters. Tbe Spanish Commissioners, espe cially General Oriega. was at first dis inclined to discus* the main issue. They raised a myriad of minor matters —few of which had anything to do with the business In hand. All of these questionß the American Commis sioners waived aside, pending the de cision of the mnin question, the evac uation. But for several days they allowed General Ortega to talk on. until he and his colleagues were compelled to re vert lo the main issue. The language of the protocol was plain, definite and stiWjfic. It provided for the imme diate evacuation of the Island. On its text our commissioners stpod and to their gratification they found the Spanish Commissioners not only ac- . quiescent, but seemingly anxious to re- ■ tire from the Island at the earliest pos-. sible moment. The Spanish authori ties realized that the entire population had become suddenly hostile to them; thal they had been dispossessed by tbe court of war; and that they were no longer there by right, but by suffer ance. They were already strangers among people of their own race, blood and language. Those who had fawned up on th« captain general in the old days no longer came to the palace. He had no more favors to bestow they remained away lest association with the old regime might prejudice them In the eyes of the new. The po sition of the Spanish authorities was a painful one and though return to Spain meant heavy reduction in sala (Continued on Page 2.)
