LANDER, TVyo., July 6. In a heavy

Lander was struck by lightning and se
verely damaged in places. Mrs. Henry

at the time, escaped uninjured, al
though electricity darted all over the

Bears Death Wound Like a Stoic,
Fearing to Tell His
PORTLAND, Or., July 6. Ernest, the
little five-year-old son of Frederick
Vogt, who lives at Monta Villa, a sub
urb of Portland, found an old rusty re
volver and shot himself In the abdo
men July -1. The little fellow, Ignorant
of the peril of his wound, and afraid
to tell his mother, wandered about the
house for hours strangely sick, but si
lent. When his mother was putting the boy
to bed she noticed the burned spot in
his clothes and what appeared to be
merely the scratch of a sharp stick bee
neath, but considered lt unworthy of
serious attention. Even later when the
seriousness of the little fellow's Illness
compelled the attention of a physician,
the true nature of hisj sickness was not
guessed and he died.
Four hours afterward an examina
tion of the supposedly harmless abra
sion was made and a bullet was found
In the Intestines.

Fugitive From Justice Wanted for
Robbery and Murder Is Run
Special to Tho Tribune
BILLINGS, Mont., July 6.-Ed Grady,
who has been a fugitive from Justice
since tho robbery of nine gamblers in
the Owl saloon Friday night and tho
murder of Seargeant R. T. Hannah and
the shooting of Sheriff George Hub
bard, was captured about four o'clock
this morning, as a result of Information
furnished by Grady'B sweetheart whose
name has not been given to the public.
The woman has been furnishing the
desperado with the necessaries of life
during his filght, and who, It is said,
had told Grady she would try and se
cure a horse for him.
This woman, through an attorney,
made a proposition to Stock Inspector
James Webb that If she were assured
of the reward of $750 offered by the
Businessmen's association she would
betray Grady and reveal his hiding
place to the officers. The authorities
promised that if Grady were produced
the reward would be paid to her.
The woman was given a bottle of
whiskey which sho took to Grady, a
posse followed her and surrounded tho
field near the city limits where Grady
was In hiding and captured him. Ho
offered no resistance and was armed
with nothing except a razor.
He was taken to Red Lodge jail and
will be kept In that city for the present
for fear of lynching in this city. Grady
confessed he was one of the robbers.

Seattle Peoplo Who Had Apparently
Worthless Land Sell It to
SEATTLE, Wash., July G. Fortunes
have been made In Seattle tide lands In
the last few months, for heavy pur
chases of the Chicago, Milwaukee &
St, Paul railway have advanced tide
land values so rapidly as to almost In
toxicate holders. The purchases of
the Milwaukee road for terminal facul
ties now reach above the million mark.
Just as an investment, a clothing store
proprietor got a tax title to three lots
for a few dollars. He unloaded his lots
for $1G0,000. A blacksmith, who was
forced to take a tide land lot for a debt,
has sold lt to the Milwaukee people for
$50,000. The Milwaukee's purchases ag
gregate several blocks near the head of
Elliott bay. It Is said to be the lnton
tlon of the Milwaukee road to build Its
line cdastward from Jennings, S. D.,
or to make traffic arrangements with
the Union Pacific and build from Ore
gon over the right of way secured by
the Union Pacific years aco, via the

while bathing with several companions.
He was swimming in .the deepest part
of a pond when he disappeared from

His body was recovered immediately
after but too late for resuscitation. Tho
supposition Is that Badley suffered an
attack of heart trouble In the water
which rendered him helpless, as he was
a good swimmer. The deceased was 33
years of age and unmarried.

Rules Committee Decides Not to Ab

ST. LOUIS, July G. The rules com
mittee of the convention, by a vote of
26 to 6, decided not to abrogate the two
thirds vote for candidates In tho con
vention and rejected a proposition for
Parker Strength Unchecked.
The steady growth of the Parker
strength has stood unchecked through
out today and tonight. In the face of
the developments of the convention's
session the nebulous opposition grew
more uncertain, and tonight no one can
be found to stand for any definite state
ment that the New Yorker will meet
with opposition of a serious character
when the convention Is polled for first
place on tho ticket. Delegates that
have wavered In the balance have suc
cumbed to the Parker tide with few ex
ceptions, and these ore not expected to
withstand the almost assured results of
the vote as It proceeds, but will chango
to the Parker column Insforo tho roll
call is finished.
Anti-Parker Conforenco Called.
It was reported late tonight that a
final antl-Pai'kef conference had been
called for an unknown place of moot
ing, but the New Yorker's managers,
confident they havo the whole situation
thoroughly In hand, were not disturbed
by this conference or its possible re
sults. Who for Second Place.
For second place on the ticket it can
hardly be 3aid that speculation tonight
centers oil any one man. A half-dozen
names are on the list of the crowds that
gather In tho lobbies, but the general
sentiment la that this matter shall be
left to ripen until after the head of the
ticket has been formally named.
New Jersey for Parker.
Formor United States Senator Smith
of New Jersey, who Is practically the
head of the delegates, saw William F.
Shcehan and assured him that New

talking over tho second man on the
Cleveland Not in It.
Senator Smith of New Jersey is
quoted as saying that he had received
a' telegram from Mr. Cleveland declin
ing positively to havo his name pre
sented, and that Parker was therefore
their second choice. No positive con
firmation, however, was to be had of
the receipt of such a message.
It Is said tonight, and Interviews will
bear lt out,' that if the platform and
credentials committees' reports are not
contested at length, the convention
may proceed to nominato a candidate
tomorrow. It Is the general impression
tonight amdng the Parker people that
thero will not be much of a fight.
May Nominate Tomorrow.
William F. Sheehan said: "It Is quite
possible that we will proceed to nom
inate tomorrow afternoon or night."
Senator Hill said; "If our work Is
cleared up to that point, I do not know
why we should not go on and nom
inate." Some of the other Stnte leaders, how
ever, disagreed with this.
The convention was called to ordor at
noon, and at 2:50 o'clock p. m. ad
journed until 10 o'clock tomorrow
! Murphy Concedes Nothing.
Charles F. Murphy of New York,
surrounded by Charles A. Towne,
Bourko Cockran nnd others, tonight
modo this statement: "It has been al
leged that I concede tho nomination of
Judge Parker. I do not. I stand just
where I stood for tho past few days. I
havo not changed ray opinion or my attitude."
May Unite on Candidate.
Some conferences were held by the
anti-Parker men, after which, they still
claimed they had enough votes to defeat
Parker if they could rely upon pledges
made to them. Various suggestions
were made as to uniting upon a candi
date, and both Gray and Olney have
been suggested ao men upon whom to
rally the Parker opposition.
Bay State to Push Olnoyy.
The Massachusetts delegation held a

couragement toward the nomination of
Richard Olney was roported, by the
special committee of five, designated to

ditional promises from several StateK
have been secured. Tho condition re
lates entirely to the strength displayed
by Parker on the flr3t few ballota. The
States which will como to Olney after
the Parker strength boa been shown are
