Boston, Mass., July 12. About all tho
breeze that was btirring in Boston this
morning and to-night was the result of
tbo vigorous wielding ot popular and
pretty fashion '90 souvenir fans.
All other cooling appliances, except
soda water, have been for the time being
abandoned, and comfort is sought and
found in Washington wind.
Thoso little pieces of illustrated paste

praised and petted until some of them
have already been marred from constant

from every Stule, province and country
havo been calling at the District head
quarter, booth in Mechanics building ask
ing and even begging for "Just one of
those pretty Washington '&G fans with
the picture of the Capitol on them."
TANS RAN OUT.
But their pleadings were in vain for the
three thousand fans that were left over
after last night's distribution was dis
posed of beforo the morning session began
That there wore many on hand to-day is
accounted for by the fact that tho combined
seating capacity of the hall and tents is
but 2G.000 whereas there were 30,000
fans of which 1,000 wereleftin Washington
for future use, thanks to tho energetic
efforts of Rev. Dr. Bradford, and somo
helpful bright Boston boys, tlie Endeavorers

The '00 buttons were also in great de
mand, but tlie supply was limited and tho
Endeavorers wants could not bo satis
fled. The fact is that Washington is in
it in enthusiasm and popularity deeper
than any other delegation.
Business began early in the District camp
and red, white and blue badges were in
ovldenceat many churches. Rev. Dr.Bagby,
pastor of tho Ninth Street Chrlatlan Church,

Each speaker was allowed two minutes,
and under Mr. Bagby's able direction it was
one of the most practical and profitable
conferences of the convention.
At noon Rev. Dr. D W. Skelliuger, pasW"
of tho Sixth Street Presbyterian Church,
and thirty othennembars of theDistrictd.eJc
gation, went down to tho Everett piano
works and conducted a factory prayer meet

THE OLD SONG AGAIN.
The acme of delegation impromptu en
tertainments was given to-night after the
close of the evening session in the corri
dor and parlors of Copeley Square Hotel.
Mr. Norman T. Elliott started the ball
rolling when he called on the delegates to
sing a familiar Gospel hymn.
This they did with a will, and then
President Shand with his best grace an
nounced a reception for the District of
Columbia delegation to-morrow night at
the Union Congregational Church.
By this time the corridor was crowded
not only with District delegates but a
number of Endeavorers from the States
who were anxious to see what sort of
crowd those Washington people are. That
they were favorably impressed was proven
by the smiles of approval and cheers when,
at their request, the Districters meta
phorically "raised the roof" with the
singing of the campaign song, "Wash
ington 96," which is now as ramillar and
popular In Boston as "Scatter Sunshiue" or
any other convention favorite.
There wero calls for Mr. Youngs, and he
played "Palms," with "Annio Laurie"
as an encore. Then "Foster" was the
cry, and the popular conductor sang, in
his exquisite stylo, "Sometime We'll
Understand," with Mrs. Frank Byram as

Strong Warning About "What He

(By United Press.)
Louisville, Ivy., July 12 An Important
conference of Democratic candidates for the
United Stales Senate and State officers, the
Democratic State committee and prominent
party leaders was held in thiscity to-day and
Among those present were: Senator Black
burn, Hon. J. B. McCreary, Gen. S. B.
Buekner, Gen. P. W. Hardin, Lieut. Gov.
Alford, Attorney General Hendrick, Auditor
Norman, John S. Rhea and many other
Tho relation of the candidates for Sena
tor to the State campaign was tlie principal
topic discussed. Senator Blackburn, as
the leading candidate, took an aggressive
part in tho conference.
Jlf made a sensational speech at an open
meeting this afternoon, questioning the right
of tho State committee to call him off the
stump or to dictate bis policy.
He declared that the State platform, by
indorsing tho national Democratic plat
form, did not eliminate the bllver question
from the campaign. Cleveland and Car
lisle construed that platform in favor of a
gold btnndnrd, but he. and many other
Democratb refused to accept that con
struction. In a secret conference lhat followed tho
open meeting Senator Blackburn is said
to have intimated that he would ignore the
State committee if it sought to muzzle
him, and his friends sa he' is confident
that a majority or the nominees on the
State ticket will repudiate the platform
and follow him in his iisfiVfor free silver.
It had been reported that at a confer
ence a few days ago all the Stato candi
dates unanimously agreed to ignore the
currency issue, but this was denied to
day. The indications are that the party
leaders are as far from harmony on tills
issue as was the recent State convention.

as tho I'ollee Entered lll .Room.
Arthur Wells, inown a3 a dealer In
buttcrand eggsin Center mnrketayearago,
shot himself through the head, from the
eye to the crown of Ins head, at 7:20
o'clock last night.
He was in his room at No. 415 Sixth
street northwest, and ex-Detective Wil
liam C. Edelin had just called to arrest
him on a charge of grand larceny. He
was taken to Emergency Hospital, where
he lay throupli the night dying.
Not a kinsman nor a friend, so far S
known at the hospital, called to see him
and nothing could be learned to locate
him more clocely than the facts given by
Wells is twenty-three years old, has a
smooth face, dark hair, gray eyes and in
telligent features. His height is about
five feet eight inches and weight 150
pounds. He is a well kuit, strong man
with great itality asshownby hiurviving
so long after his self-inflicted wound.
He was dressed in a coat and vest ot
black corkscrew sturf, bought of Saks i
Co.-, as shown by tho tag; a pair of dark
blue serge trousers, white cotton drawers,
pointed patent leather shoes, black cotton
socks of fine texture, an "Anchor Brown"
check negligee f-hirt, and a white Fedora
No. 7 hat with union label trade-mark.
A note found in his pocket was taken
by the superintendent of the hospital, but
is said to contain nothing to show moro
fully his connections.
Hu appears to have been engaged re
cently in a confidence game, by which be
got buggies and harness from liverymen
and traded or sold them.
He had been at No. 415 Sixth street
only a month, and no one there knew much
more than his name. Mrs. Collins, who
keeps the house, said he told her he had
lived two years in the southeastern part of
the city, and gave the name of the people
he lived with, but she could not remember
Ho told her his name was Robert Wells.
To others he had given the names Mitchell
Hislatest victim, according to the informa
tion of the detectives, was G. A. Owison,
the liveryman, at Nos. 4GS-70 C street
HIS LATEST VICTIM.
He went there Sunday and asked Robert
Owison for the use of a buggy and harness
for an hour or two. Mr. Owison let him
have it and Ben Brooks, foreman of the
stable, had it brought out for him. The
colored man drew the buggy up the street a
little way when another man appeared with
a horse and Wells harnessed up and drove
away. That was tho last or the harness
and buggy till yesterday.
Mr. Owison put Ex -Detective Edelin on
the cae. Mr. Edelin is regularly em
ployed as'a special watchman at the Buena
Vista wharf but has many .years helped
Mr. Owison in such cases. He began in
quiries at other stables, and soon found
that others hhd lost buggies just as had
On Thursday he got an idea who the man
was and yesterday he found Mr Owison's
buggy had been traded to H. Rahling at
No. 4121 Tenth street northwest. About
2 p. m. he took Mr. Owison there aud the
latter identified tho buggy and har
ness as his.
Mr. Edelin then talked with Lieut.
and bwore out a warrant. He told In
spector Hollinberger, who sent out a call
to the prccincta, to look out for a man of
Wells' description. He got the number
of Wells residence from Mr. Rchling, to
whom the buggy had been traded, and this
was verified later from another source.
Wells has been seen at Vincent's stable
at Tenth and D streets and notice had been
received there to be on the lookout for him.
While a messenger was goue to notify the
police Wells got a hint that he was wanted
and said to Frank Emmet, a colored boy,
that it meant trouble for him and he was
going to skip the town.
REPORTED TO THE POLICE.
He left with this remark and Emmet
reported the remark at police headquarters.
Detective Boyd went to the Baltimore and
Potomac depot and set a Avatch at the Balti
more and Ohio. Soon after Mr. Edelin
came in and learning what had been sald
went at onco to No. 415 Sixth street.
He was let In by the colored servant,
Tilly, who accompanied him to Wells' room.
Then Mr. Edelin says he saw no one at
first, but the girl said, "there he is," and
pointed out a man in the shadow of the
"I went in," said Mr. Edelin last night.
"Ha was sitting by a table back in the al

Ho replied 'How are you.' My next word
