Governor Foster was renominated by
acclamation by the Republicans of
Ohio at their slate convention at Cleve
land. The approaching canvass in the
Buckeye state promises to bo ono of un
usual activity, as no effort will be spared
by the Democrats to accuse the udvan-
taire which a Bourbon victory would
give them in that great commonwealth
in Octolier. Il is fall to assume that Uic
opposition will place at the head of their
ticket their strongest available man, and
that the contest will be, to say the- least,
quite close, compared wiht that of last
year. The state is famous lor its sun
den political revolutions, and the fact
that she gave President Garfield the
handsome majority of 23,000 votes last
fall is not. of itself, a warrant of what
she will do in an off-year.

FAITH AND WORKS.
In all the beautiful and terrible theo
ries of the speedy end of the world that
have been advanced from time to time
there has liecn one fatal defect their ad
vocates did not entirely believe in them.
Some gentlemen and ladies have preach
ed sermons and inflicted long talks on
the public in defence of one or another
dale fr the great conflagration ; others
have licen enough in earnest to risk a
dollar each on ascension rolies, but
none of them have ever been known to
be any less careful ot the morrow or
about contracts to mature a year hence
because they were in momentary expec
tation of an appallingloot from Gabriel's
horn. But advices from the cast indicate
that at lost somo consistent listeners
for the last trump have been found ; they
are farmers, and have neglected to plant
crops liccause, according to Mother Ship-
ton, the end of the world will occur
about the middle of this month. While
some men have bod the courage to fight
r their convictions and others to die
for them, these farmers arc merely being
lazy for tho sake of theirs. They are
not to be spoken lightly of on this ac
count, "however, for sooner or later, un
less their neighbors are generous or
their county poorhouso is large, they
will have a chance to starve for sweet
conviction's sake, and there is no
stronger proof of sincerity than that.

The public has watched the progress
of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe
railroad with interest. Its wonderful ac-
coinplishmcuU in the face of nil difficul
ties have bc-:n a constant series of sur
prises. Its march across the country
with its iron bands has been liko that of
a victorious army. When its plans arc
completed, and its system of roads arc
n opcratiou, it will be the grandest en
terprise on the continent, and it will
have turned an empire of wilderness
into flourishing states. In its manage
ment it bos been the grandest success of
this century. Even twenty years ago
had any one predicted that this great
company would rise and do what it has
done he would nave been considered a

rather than a reality.
Hon. T. B. Murdock, in one of his
western letters to the Commonwealth,
gives the following description of what
is now being done by this company and
others with which it is connected :
The Atluulic & Pacific railroad leaves
tho Hue of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa
Fe near Alburqurquc, and steel track is
laid 200 miles west of the latter place,
in the direction oi oouinern Cauloruia.
When completed it will be operated in

owned by ijohimi people, win, in my
udguient, at no distant day, form one
continuous line iroin Chicago to tit
City of Mexico, and to a point on the
Gulf of California near Ouayinas.
The St. Ijouis & San Francisco
company, with headquarters nt New
l ork, lormeriy owned, not only a Jiue
of road from St. Louis to Vinita, in the
ludian Territory, but bait acquired the
right to the land grant of the Atlantic
& Pacific road. By an agreement be
tween the parties, the Boston people
purchased a half interest In the St. Louis
& San Francisco, then completed to Vin
ita, with a brancb from fierce City, Mis
souri, to Wichita, Kansas, and also a
half interest In the Atlantic & I'acific
road proper, which was proposed to be
extended from Vinita to San Diego, on
the Pacific coast. Under this agreement
the Boston people were to furnish half
the money aud the New York people the
other half, for the construction of this
line, the road to lie under - joint control.
Fifty-three million dollars have been
subscribed and is now in the pool for
the building of this road, aud Mr.
Thomas Niekerson, of Boston, is made
president ot tbe new company. Mr.
Niekerson was formerly president of
the Alcnison, iopeita & sauta He road,
and we believe we are safe in saying
that he and his immediate associates
have raised more money and built more
miles of railroad wan any other corpor
ation in the world.
With their new lines completed, as
now contemplated, they will have a
continuous railroad from Chicago to the
city of Mexico; to Guaymas, on the
Gulf of California; San Diego and Son
Francisco, on the Pacific coast: with
another trunk line from St. Louis, via
Vinita and tno ran Handle of Texas,
to an intersection or botn roads at or
near Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Judtre Morton, of Totieka, in tho
Shawnee county district court, on
Wednesday, rendered decisions in four
cases under the "Act to prohibit the
manufacture and sale of intoxicatin
liquors, except for medical, scientific
and mechanical purposes.". In each
case the defendant filed a motion to
squash the information as not stating
facts sufficient to constitute a public of
fense, and it was upon questions arising
out of these motions that the opinion ot
the court was iriven.
In two of the cases referred to, the de
fendants, both ot whom were druggists,
werecharged with selling brandy and al
cohol upon a written prescription of
practicing physician without having
procured a druggist's permit therefor
from the probate judge, as is required
by the second section of the prohibition
act; and the court, holding that the Leg.
islaturc bus the right to put such reason
able restrictions upon a privilege guar
anteed by the constitution as to prevent
its abuse, and also recognizing the power
of the Legislature to confer upon the
probate court any jurisdiction not incon
sistent with the exercise of that confer
red upon it by the constitution, over
ruled the motion in each case to quash
In the other cases the defendants, also
druggists, were charged with selling,
without having taken out the "permit
required by the prohibition act, medical
preparations, the base of which was al
cohol, but which contained a large pro
portion of drugs and medicinal herbs,
compounded in the form of bitters and
of patent medicine. The court in these
coses snstained the motion to quash the
information and accompanied its decis
ion with the following pertinent obser
"The history of the movement which
resulted in the adoption of the ' Prohibi
tion Amendment," and the enactment of
the law now under consideration, and
the object to be thereby secured, are too
well known to give rise to any dispute.
Those who voted for the amendment
were not voting to prevent tho use of ar
ticles common to toilet purposes or culi
nary use. Jt was no attack upon bay
rum, camphor or tincture of lemon ; it
was intended only to strike at such
liquors and mixures its were in ordinary
and known use as intoxicating
leverages or which, in the failure
to obtain such l(cvcragf, it could
reasonably and fairly lie believed
would be usotl as substitutes. it
seems that this intent and object of the
law must be taken into consideration as
an important element in its construction ;
and that while some particular prepara
tion, or "patent medicine" might possi
bly, in iv tew cases, with a few exception
al constitutions, produce effects similar
to intoxication at an enormous risk of
health of life perhaps the real Question
and test, to which each "liquor" or "mix
ture" is to lie submitted, is about this:
Is there reasonable dnnwr that this will
be used as or as nn equivalent substi
tute for an intoxicating lieverajre?"
The law should receive a reasonable
construction equally removed on the
one hand trom a fanatical coloring, and
on the other from a tendency to fritter it

the money began pouring in on him.
It made him the most miserable man in
the world. He was afraid to trust the
money in the banks, and when it got too
bulky to carry around on his person, he
took to burying it in out of-tlie-wav
places. That, too, failed to prove
satisfactory, and tho ' old fel
low hit on a brilliant idea.
He bought two ponderous safes with
barn -door locks, mid took them to his
cabin. Then he dug tip bis treasure;

The news flew like wild-tire, and the
next day Benniughoff ollered a reward
of $100,000 for the arrest of the gang or
any members of it. This brought to tho
Centre the ticst detectives in the coun
try, and before long it was discovered
that the robbery liua nceu committed ny
party ot six men trom isiegerstown, a
village fifty miles to the northwest.
The scheme had been concocted by Jim
Saeger, who took with him a brewer,
shoemaker, anil three other
fellows he knew and could trust.
Hundreds of arrests were made, and fin
ally nearly all of the little fishes were
taken in, but Saeger, who had taken
$300,000 of money, was too sharp for
the detectives. Nothing was he-ird of
him for years, though officers scoured
Europe and America. Reports reached
the Center occasionally that he was in
Germany, or Turkey, or Paris, or Aus
tralia, or some other distant point, but
nothing came of it. Five or six days
ago the man turned up in Denver, where
he was recognized and arrested, but,
BcnninehoiT having died and his estate
having been wasted, the officers refused
to go to the expense ot bringing him
bock, and ho was released. They said
that all tbe Important witnesses were
dead, or scattered, and that ho could not
bo convicted. Besides, there was no
chance at the $300,000. Anyhow, Sae
ger got off scott free.
"It seems that after robbing the Ben-

Itcadjustcr convention was called to or
der, Wise, who last night nominated
Gen. Mahone, said he had done so with
out that gentleman's consent, and now
desired to withdraw the nomination.
The third ballot was as follows: Gree
ner, 14; Cameron, 201: Massey, Zoi;
Wise, 88. A number of votes were cast
for Riddleberger. which were subse
quently changed, at the instance of llutt
gentleman who brielly addressed the
convention, thanking the delegates who
had complimented him. At the same
time he said he thought il was well un
derstood he was not a candidate, and his
name would not bo considered, lie
hoped that his friends would feel them
selves relieved of auy and all obliga
tions to support him.
A resolution was introduced to drop
the lowest candidate on each successive
ballot, and that the candidate so dropped
shall not be renominated until one bal
lot intervenes. This gave rise to an ex
citing debate, which, amid great confu
sion, was put to an end by the main
question being ordered. After which
the resolution was adopted by an over
whelming majority. At this point sev
eral of the delegations favoring the
nomination of General Grecucr asked
leave to withdraw for ten minutes from
the conference. It was granted, and
business temporarily suspended.
upon the return ot urcencr's iricnds
tbe balloting was resumed, the fourth
ballot showing a steady gain for Massey.
iieloro the vote was announced a num
ber of slight changes were made, mainly
favorable to Cameron. Tho county of
Accomac then changed their solid vote
of twelve from Wise to Cameron. This
was received with prolonged applause
Change followed change in rapid succes.
sion from Wise to Cameron. . Amid the
great confusion which attended these
changes the friends of Massey and
Greener asked leave to retire for consul
tation. No attention was paid to the re
quest and the confusion continued to
increase. While it was in altercation
Gen. Mahone appeared before the con.
vention and, as usual, was greeted with
thundering applause. In an instant
order was restored and he pleaded for
harmony and begged that fair play be
shown and. that ' the dele
gation that wished to retire might
do so and that the proceedings be sua
pended during their absence. No fur
ther objection being made- the Masscy
and Greener men left the building.
Upon their return the secretary pro
ceeded to call tho - roll over tor
the changes. When about half the
counties had been called it became evi
dent from the numerous changes in fa
vor of Cameron that his nomination was
a fixed fact.

THE QUEBEC FIRE.
Om of the Moat Terrible Conflagrations
Quebec, June .-One of the most
disastrous fires with which this city
uas ueen aimcico commenced last night,
and was only got under control atlsix
o'clock a. m. The first alarm was from
tho comer of St. Oliver and St. Clair
streets, at ten minutes before eleven
o'clock. A few minutes later the bells
from Basalisk. St. John and St Koch's
churches rang out the second alarm.
The reflection was so brilliant that in a
short time half of the city appeared at
tracted to the scene, liy halt past 11
o'clock all tho avenues around and
leading to the fire were 'so coinnletclv
packed with people that it was next to
impossible to lorce a wavthrouch them.
i ne scene or utter contusion in the vi
cinityofthe conflagration beggars de
scription. Half the people seemed pan
ic-stricken, and three-fourths of the oth
ers were only adding to the general con
fusion by running against each other
and assisting in the destruction of prop
erty, ia the belief that they were render
ing assistance in saving it. t arenis
partially clothed hurried'along in every
direction with infants in their arms and
leading other's children by the hand
Thousands of horses let loose from the
burning stables rushed through the
The origin of the fire was in a stable
on St. Oliver street, near St. Mary's
street. -1 ho names immediately spread
to the surrounding . wooden buildings
und to streets above and below St. Oli
ver. Latourellc, St. Marie and Riche
lieu streets were quickly a mass of fire
for some hundreds of feet, the flames
from the other sides of the streets over
lapping in the middle and completely
closing them. The scenes common to
all great fires were discernable at this
stage. Even the police and firemen, to
a great extent, were demoralized. Dar
ing robberies were carried on freely, and
in full sitrht of evervbodv. Stores and
private dwellings attacked by the flames
were ransacked for liquor, which was
openly drank by the lowest degree of
society common to the locality in ques
tion, and who irequent the low hovels
whose destruction is one of the least re
gretable features of the disaster. The
sparks which everywhere flew from the
wooden buildings were themselves a
terrible source of danger to the rest of
tho city. It was a common sight to sec
men's coats and hats ablaze from the
burning wooden pieces of shingles that
lighted on them. The wind being from
the north drove the tire rapidly in
the direction of St. Joseph's church.
and various contrary local cur
rents scattered the cinders around
in every direction. Tho brigade found
the fire more unmanageable than
ever. They allege that four, wooden
houses were found on fire by them when
they arrived upon the scene, and with
water absent and unattainable for some
twenty minutes, it was impossible for
them to obtain the master'. The hy
drants had three good streams when
water came into them, but too late to be
of much service. When the fire spread
as above described the meu of the bri
gade lost all control over any portion of
it. Their necessary sub division into so
many parties was a weakness. The
flames swept onward with almost light
ning rapidity. The fury of tho devour
ing elements knew no bounds but the
city's outskirts, and none who failed to
see them would be inclined to credit
tho rate at which Uiey swept all before
them. The greatest part of Duquillun
street, west of St. Genevieve, had been
destroyed, when the flames appeared in
St. John street, a little further out. At
o'clock the clanging of the bells of St.
John's church in rapid and alarming
tones, told of the danger to that prop
erty, and summoned assistance. The
whole efforts of the fire brigade imme
diately bent on saving the sacred edifice,
but to no avail. .Nothing was saved
but the sacred vessels and some of the
most valuable plate and furniture of
the sanctuary. The lire took possession
of the noble structure in almost less
space of time than it takes to tell, and
the finest and largest church in the city
was doomed. It was a grand sight to
witness the angry flames, climbing the
steeples of the church and to see them
C-ill a few minutes later. Tho more.,
northerly of the two was the first to go.
It gradually tottered and then fell out
on to the roof of the other structure ; the
other steeple gradually sunk next After
the church came the Friars' schools op
posite, and still tho flames swept on.
t rusting as it conndent so majestic an
edifice could never fall a prey to any of
the elements, the neighbors around had
carried their household goods to the
front of the church and there piled them
at every door of the sanctuary, but all
were irretrievably lost. The church was
worth nt least $100,000; insurance only
$1,000. At the foot of Jupiter street,
below Berthelot market, the flames hod
crossed from St. John street, and from
this point they rapidly flew west along
that tine avenue, keeping pace with the
other division of the conflagration op
posite. At Jupiter street it spread i
southward to Berthelot market place,
and destroyed Gabriel and St. Patrick
streets as far out as there were buildings
to be destroyed. : The Lower field alone
stayed tho progress of the fire.
It ran upwards toward tho
Grand Alice at a terrible rate of speed.
There being no water, men, hose nor
other appliance to it, only the gap
caused by the recent conflagration here
stopped the total destruction of the
wholo street, it is impossible to de
scribe the spread ol the flames on every
side, and it will, perhaps, lie more satis
factory to give an idea of the limits of
the burnt district. The only thing that
the firemen succeeded in doing was to
curb the fire east of St. Genevieve street.
From Latourelle street up nearly to St.
John street the westerly side of St.
Genevieve street bas been swept away.
To the north the fire extended as far as
Richmond street. The western limit is
little ucvond Uic street car stables at
Mount Pleasant near the city boundary.
The limit at Burton, near Scott, and at
Gabriel streets, has been already men
tioned. Briefly summed up the streets
consumed arc: running cast and west
Richmond in part, principally the south
side, Latourelle, Oliver, Richelieu, Da-
quillon, St. John's, a ward in Montcalm
street, Gabriel, Nouvelle, and Briton ;
running north and south the principal
streets were Sutherland, Delagny, St.
Clair, St. Marie and St. Genevieve, west
side, besides Jupiter street in Mont
calm ward, also west side. Among
the property destroyed on John street
were a large number of handsome build
ings used as stores and private residenc
es. . The battery was called out and ren
dered excellent aid in saving property
and in keeping order. Several remark
able whirl-winds were caused by the
fire. Men were in some cases lifted off
their feet. On the Lower field where
most of the burnt out people had camp
ed with .their saved goods, the fire fol
lowed the unfortunates and burned up
most of the goods piled on the grass.
Burning shingles fell over the city and
as far out as Maple avenue during the
night, endangering every part of the
town. Several incipient fires in differ
ent streets were suppressed by the vigi
lance ot the occupants, it is computed
that there must be a loss of two million
dollars between the buildings, stock and
furniture. Over 1.500 families are ren
dered homeless and at least 800 build
ings destroyed. It is impossible to give
a full and correct list of the sufferers.
losses and insurance companies at this
moment, but all the insurance compa
nies doing business in the city are heavy
losers. The fire brigade and apparatus
were quite unfit to cope with euch a fire,
and to its weakness and wretched water
service the whole disaster is due.
Counterfeit Tree Agents. The
Country Gentleman, in dealing with
this familiar form of fraud, says : "Every
year our exchanges about this time of
year teem with accounts of the vigilant
impostor in the fields under the name or
tree agents.' r urcnasers are variously
imposed on to some extent by them,
but they do more harm to the genuine
and trustworthy agents of reliable nur
series. They prevent sales of valuable
trees to those who do not discriminate
between the genuine and the counterfeit.
The Prairie Farmer has nearly a column
describing the operations of some of
these impostors, one of whom has

The Fox'i Advice to the Hare.
One day a Fox discovered a fine
chance to capture a pullet for his dinner,
the only drawback being .the tact that
the Farmer had set a trap just in the
path which any depredator must trayel.
In this emergency the hungry Reynard
hunted around until he found a Hare.
and after a few remarks on the state of
wheathT, tho scramble for oflice, the
Whittaker investigation, and the Turkish
question, he said:
"1 was just thinking, as 1 overtook
you what impudence some folks have."
"Why. I met Miss Pullet a short time
since, and she lioostcd of being able to
"The brassy creature!" exclaimed the
Why, I can run as fast as she can
fly!" "Certainly you can, but she's do
ing you great injury among your friends
by her stories. If I were you I'd see her
and warn her that this thing must stop."
"I'll do it ! 1 was built tor speed, and
everybody knows it, and I won't have
any Pullet boasting that she can outrun
me. CVme along and show me where
Well, I'll go as a special favor to you.
of course," humbly replied the Fox, "and
show Miss t'uliet what the ioxes
think of the Hares, I will let you take
the lead and follow in your footsteps."
As they ncarcd the coop the tiare be
gan to arrange a little speech of greet
ing, but he soon had other fish to fry.
He walked into the trap with eyes wide
open, and ere ho bad recovered from the
shock the Fox had secured his dinner.
"Say! say! I'm caught!" yelled the
Hare, as be struggled with the trap.
"So 1 observe," was the reply.
"And what is your advice?"
"To get away as shon as you can !"
Every neighborhood scandal has three
lies to one truth. JNo person becomes a
talc bearer except to forward some
scheme of bis owYi. When a fox is anx
