REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION* REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION
CHICAGO, June 20.The Republican Na
tional convention was called to order yes
terday at 12:3I by Chairman Jones, of the
National committee. Rev. Frank W. Gun
saulus, of Chicago, opened the proceedings
with prayer, after which Chairman Jones
introduced S. Thurston, of Nebraska, as
temporary chairman of the convention.
Delegate Osborn, of Kansas, objected to the
assumption on the part of the National
committee of the right to name the tempo
rary chairman and demanded a roll call of
states, but no attention as paid to his de
mand, and Mr. Thurston was e-corted to
the chair, raak'ng a lengthy speech, thank,
ing the convention for the honor conferred
upon him and criticising the administration
of President Cleveland.
After the other temporary oflicers of the
convention were appointed Mr. Horr, of
Michigan, ascended the platform and pre
sented the chairman a gavel made of the
oak under which the Republican party was
organized on ths 6th of July, 1854, in the
village of Jackson, Mich.

Delegate Moody, of Dakota, moved that
Dakota be allowed ten votes in the conven
tion, claiming she was entitled to this vote
by her population and by all precedents in
the history of the party, but the chair an
nounced that the National committee had
recommended Dakota be given ten votes
and Washington Territory be given six, and
furthgr discussion was dropped.
On motion of Mr. Bingham (Pa.) the rales
of the last convention were adopted for the

tion, credentials and order of business.
The chair announce 1 that the Nebraska
delegation had with it as its gues John C.
Fi emont, the first nominee of the Republi
can party for President, and the convention
voted to allow chairman Green, of the Ne
braska delegation, to present him.
Gen. Fremont made a brief speech, in
which he said he was unwilling to delay the
business of the convention, and therefore he
would consume only a few moments of
time. But he would feel that he carried an
insensible clod and not a warm and sym
phatic heart in his breast. He was sensibly
grateful for the welcome ho had received.
He was happy and proud to receive here, in
this great National assembly, the welcome
given by his friends and companions of
many years, by his party friends, by the
men, and the sons of the men with whom it
had been his conspicuous honor to have
been associated in the first opening cam
paign of 1856.
Fred Douglass was then presented and
urged that the Repuplican party should be
faithful to its friends, the colored people,
and that the platform speak out for equal
rights for all, and not be driven from its
duty by the cry of "bloody shirt'"
The Mahone-Wise contest Virginia was
brought up. The National committee had
placed upon the rolls of delegates as prima
facie entitled to seats the delegation at
large headed by William Mahone, and the
chair stated that, unless the convention
should otherwise determine, the four dele
gates at the head of which was William Ma
hone, and the four delegates whose seats
were uncontested, would have the right to
name the committee membership.

STRANGE WAR DUEL.
An Interesting Incident Keeonled by
On the 12th of June, 1863,1 witnessed
duel between Captain Jones, com
manding a Federal scout, and Captain
Fry, commanding a Confederate scout.
In Greene County, East Tennessee.
These two men had been fighting each
other for six months, with the fortunes
of battle in favor of one and then the
othor. Their command was encamped
on either side of Lick Creek, a large
and sluggish stream, too deep to ford
and too shallow for a ferry-boat, but
there a bridge spanned the stream for
the convenience of the traveling public
Each of them guarded this bridge, that
communication should go neither north
nor south, as the railroad train track
had been broken up months beforei
After fighting each other several
months and contesting the point as to
which should hold the bridge, they
agreed to fight a duel, the conqueror to
hold tho bridge undisputed for tho
time being. Jones gave the challenge
and Fry accepted. The terms -were
that they should fight with navy pistols
at twenty yards apart, deliberately
walking toward each other and firing
until the last chamber of their pistols
was discharged, unless one or the other
fell before all the discharges were
made. They chose their seconds and
agreed upon a rebel surgeon (as lie was
the only one in either command) to at
tend them in case of danger.
Jones was certainly a fine-looking
fellow, with light hair and blue eyes,
five feet ten inches in height, looking
every inch the military chieftain. He
was a man soldiers would admire and
ladies regard with admiration. 1 never
saw a man more cool, determined and
heroic under such circumstances. I
have read of the deeds of chivalry and
knight-errantry in the Middle Ages and
brave man embalmed in modern poesy,
buft\vhen I saw Jones come to the
duelists' scratch, lighting, not for real
or supposed wrongs to himself, but, as
he honestly thought, for his country
and the glory of the flag, I could not
help admiring the man, notwithstand
ing he fought for the freedom of tho
negro, which I was opposed to.
Fry was a man full six feet high,
slender, with long, wavy, curling hair,
jet-black eyes, wearing a slouch hat
and gray suit, and looked rather tho
demon than the man.
There was nothing ferocious about
him, but he had that self-sufficient non
chalance that said: "I will kill you."
Without a doubt he was brave, cool
and collected, and although suffering
from a terrible flesh wound in his left
arm, received a week before, he mani
fested no symptoms of distress, but
seemed ready for the fight.
The ground was stepped off by tho
seconds, pistols loaded and exchanged,
and the principals brought face to face.
They turned around and walked back
to the point designated. Jones' second
had the word "Fire," and as he slowly
said "Onetwothreefire!" they
simultaneously turned at the word
"One" and instantly fired. Neither
was hurt. They cocked their pistols
and deliberately walked toward each
other, firing as they went. At the fifth
shot Jones threw tip his right hand
and, firing his pistol in the air, sank
down. Fry was in the act offiringhis
last shot, but, seeing Jones fall, silently
lowered his pistol, dropped it on tho
ground and sprang to Jones' side,
taking his head in his lap as he sat
down and asking him if he was hurt.
I discovered that Jones was shot
through the region of the stomach, the
bullet glancing around that organ and
coming out to the left of the spinal
column besides he had received three
other frightful flesh wounds in other
portions of the body. I dressed his
wounds and gave him such stiumlants
as I had. He afterwards got well.
Pry received three wounds one
breaking his right arm. one the left and
the other in the right side. After
months of suffering he got well, and
fought the war out to the bitter end,

wholesale grocery business, and certi

THE LOVABLE WOMAN.
Byron's Image of a Representative
According to anew "Theory of Har
mony and form" published on the other
side of the Atlantic, certain combina
tions of a circle, triangle and square
produce a perfect type of femalo
beauty. This may be called reducing
loveliness to a mathematical demon
stration. We have always considered
woman a wonderful problem, yet never
suspected that this was the true solu
tion. The "Theory" goes on to Fay
that "the regulation of the geometrical
figures must be in accord with certain
harmonic proportions existing in
music from which we infer that a
lady mathematically beautiful appears
to most advantage when dancing to
the sound of a piano or a fiddle.
Our own notion of a truly lovable
.womanand none other is really beau
tifulis not mathematical, though it
may comprehend harmony and melody,
especially of the voice. There are (to
use the words of another, "women of
sweet, maidenly natures, growing up
in the practice of kindness, of tender
household duties, of simple Godly aims,
and of gonial, pleasant accomplish-
'Till, at the last, they set themselves to man
Like perfect music unto noble words.'"
Byron, brings before us tho image of
one of this sweet sisterhood in half a
"Around her shone
The nameless charms unmarked byTier alone
The light of love, the.purity of grace,
The mind, the music breathing from her face,
The heart whose softness harmonized the
And oh! that eye was in itself a soul."
One rarely sees this style of a lady
in the street in a pork-pie hat with a
blood-colored feather, or at the opera
heavily fettered with jewelry. She
does not divide her waking hours into
three equal partsdevoting one TO gos
sip, one to shopping and one to flirting.
She reads, thinks, never scolds and

GREAT LAVA FLOOD.
Hmr tbe Columbia Hirer Makes It Way
Through the Cascade Range.
The central and eastern parts of Oregon
are a vast, bed of lava, which covers, ac
cording to Prof. a Conto, between 200,000
and 300,000 square miles of territory. I is
probably the most extraordinary lava flood
in the world. Commencing in Middle Cali
fornia as separate streams, in Northern
California it becomes a flood flowingovei
and completely manteling the smaller ine
qualities, and flowing around the greater
inequalities of surface, while in Northern
Oregon and Tacoma it becomes an absolute
ly universal flood, beneath which tho whole
original face of the country, with its hills
and dales, mountains and valleys, lies
buried several thousand feet. I covers
the greater portion of Northern California
and Northwestern Nevada, nearly the whole
of Oregon, Tacoma and Idaho, and runs fai
into Montana on the east and British Colum
bia on the north.
This enormous matter evidently arose
through Assures, and flowed until the
streams or masses met, forming- an almost
continuous sheet. The Cascade range oi
mountains seems to have been a source ol
The area covered by this overflow can nol
bo les's than 100,000 square miles, with ar
nverage thiclmesa of about 2,000 feet, bu1
having a thickness in somo places of 3,7(X
feet. Th statement, which seems an ex
traordinary one, is sustained by the ex
tensive observations of Prof. Eo Conte.
Tho Columbia river cuts through the Cas
cado range in a gorge a hundred miles ir
length, with perpendicular cliffs. The cas
cades of th river are at the axis of the
range, and tho cliffs hero are 2,500 to 3,8fX
feet above tho river surface, and are com
posed of lava, tier upon tier, from toptc
bottom. Considering surface erosion, 4,00t

There occurs at the river's edge, and
about fifteen feet upward, a layer of course

pears to have been a dirt-bed, or old-ground
surface. On this surface were found twe
silicified stumps, with their roots spread
out, one of which was two feet in diameter,
tho roots leaching over an area twenty feet
in diameter. Trunks of other trees were
seen. Over this was a layer of stratified
sandstone, with beautiful impressions ol
leaves of several kinds of forest trees. "Up-
on this lies about one hundred feet of con
glomerate, resembling drift, in the bottom
of which were found trnk3 and branches
of oaks and conifers. Upon the conglom
erate tho lava lies in columnar masses to
height of 3,300 feet.
Tho geological age of tho wood and leal

began to occur during or after the miocene.

The treatment of many thousands of cases
Of those chronic weaknesses and distressing
ailments peculiar to females, at the Invalids'

Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
is the outgrowth, or result, of this great and
valuable experience. Thousands or testimo
nials, received from patients and from physi

their skill, prove it to be the most wonderful
remedy ever devised for the relief and euro of
suffering women I i3 not recommended as a
"cure-all," but as a most perfect Specific for
woman's peculiar ailments.
A a powerful, invigorating tonic*
it imparts strength to the whole system,
and to the womb and its appendages in
particular. For overworked, ''worn-out,"
"run-down," debilitated teachers, milliners,
dressmakers, seamstresses, "shop-girls," house
keepers, nursing mothers, and feeble women
generally. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
is the greatest earthly boon, oeing unequaled
as an appetizing cordial and restorative tonic.
A a sootningr and strengthening
nervine, "Favorite Prescription" is une
qualed and is invaluable in allaying and sub
duing nervous excitability, irritability, ex

Ur. a?iorces Favorite Prescription
is a legitimate medicine, carefully
compounded by an experienced and skillful
physician, and adapted to woman's delicate

inflammation and ulceration of tho womb, in
flammation, pain and tenderness in ovaries,
accompanied with "internal heat."
A a regulator and promoter of func
tional action, at that critical period of change
from girlhood to womanhood, "Favorite Pre
scription is a perfectly safe remedial agent,
and can produce only good results. I is
equally efficacious and valuable in 'its effects
when taken for those disorders and derange
ments iucideut to that later and most critical
period, known as The Change of Life."
