Delegates From the South and East
for "Sound Money" and
• CLEVELAND, Ohio, June 18.— Every
incoming train to-day brought scores of
delegates and visitors to attend the
National Republican League convention,
which begins to-morrow morning. The
business portion of the city is profusely
decorated w!th flags and bunting. Music
Hall, where the convention will be held,
has been most artistically decorated. The
immense Arcade building, In which the
banquet will take place on Thursday even
ing, has been transformed into a veritable
bower of beauty. The decorations have
cost many thousands of dollars, and, it is
stated, are the finest ever produced at any
The two principal topics under discus
sion around the hotel corridors to-day
were league politics and the silver ques
tion. General E. A. McAlpine of New
York seems to have the strongest support
to-day, and his friends claim that he has a
'cinch" on the chairmanship.
Nearly all of the Eastern delegates who
have thus far arrived seem to favor Gen
eral McAlpine for the presidency of the
league. The other candidates for the posi
tion are Hon. H. C. Evans of Tennessee,
Hon. S. B. Elkins of West Virginia and
Colonel Isaac Trumbo of California. It is
stated to-day that Ohio will support John
Goodnow of Minnesota for the league
presidency if he will accept the place.
Among the visiting statesmen who at
tracted the most attention during the day
were Governor Brown of Rhode Island,
Governor Nelson and ex-Governor Mer
riam of Minnesota, ex-Governor Moody of
Oregon and the officers of State leagues,
but the intlux of delegates to-night is so
large. that favorites are less conspicuous.
Senators Carter and Dubois, however, are
more eagerly sought after to-night than
ever, as they are recognized as leaders of
the silver movement, and all Western dele
gates want to meet them.
The silver enthusiasts are greatly disap
pointed to-night over the attitude of the
mountaineers and the colored brethren of
the South. The silver delegates say that
the delegates from the Southern States are
dividing on the silver question, and that
they want nothing done at this convention
on that question, and if the issue is forced
they will vote with the Eastern and other
delegates againal free silver, so as to have
an issue against the Southern Democrats
that will break the old lines of race preju
dice. The Southern delegates are for a
policy of expediency and say the old
Whig element of the South is for "sound
money" as we'll as for protection, and that
the solid South can be broken by the Re
publicans declaring in favor of both prin
The American Protective Tariff League
has elaborate headquarters here in charge
of General Secretary Wilbur P. Wake man
of New York and State secretaries. This
organization has over 1000 auxiliary
leagues, 3000 officers and correspondents,
and over 6000 newspapers using its bureau
matter. It is evidently forming an alli
ance here with the anti-silverites of the
South, whatever may be its policy on a
further combine for 1896.
The Pennsylvania delegates are co-oper
ating closely with the Tariff League and
working with the Southern delegates for
protection and "sound money" without
regard to the contest for president oftiie
National League. The Southern States
are more largely represented than in former
years. There is a movement to avoid any
decisive action whatever now on the tariff,
silver or other disputed questions and to
hold the annual meeting next year after
the Republican National Convention so as
to avoid the embarrassment of anticipated
action on issues that are contested.
There are here now leading Republicans
who have never attended league meetings
before and who are here in the interests of
McKinley, Reed, Allison and others for
President. It is realized that the Presiden
tial boomlet will be more numerous and
more luxuriant than ever next year, and
for that reason it is argued that the meet
ing of 1896 should be held after the Repub
lican National Convention.
D. D. Woodmansee, president of the Ohio
league, withdrew as a candidate for Na
tional president because of McKinley's
candidacy for President, and now the Ohio
delegation does not know what to do. The
Eastern men insist on them supporting
General McAlpin, and the Western dele-
gates threaten to remember such action
Chauncey M. Depew is expected Wednes
day and will be forced to speak, although
he will remain here but a short time on
his return from Nashville.
Miss Helen Boswell of New York was
the first lady delegate to arrive, and the
only one from the Ea«t. In the Western
States lady delegates are also rare. Miss
Boswcll has been a great worker in New
York and was enthusiastically working all
day for General McAlpin for the presi
dency of the league. There are quite a
number of ladies present.
President Tracy arrived from Chicago
to-night and has been with Secretary
Humphrey and the executive committee.
Members of the committee concede that
the fight is now the field against General
McAlpin, with the chances in favor of
McAlpin. H. Clay Evans is telling his
friends to-night that he cannot allow the
use of his name, and cot the Tennessee
delegation to promise not to vote for him.
The free-silver men held a confen-nce
to-night and decided to make an aggreg
sive tight, notwithstanding the dissatis
faction of the Southern delegates, on whom
they had depended. The silver men say
they will run Colonel Isaac Trumbo of Salt
Lake for president of the league and show
their strength on a ballot. Senators Carter
and Dubois are working hard for Trumbo.
The latter will precipitate the silver fight
by offering a 16 to 1 resolution to-morrow
and demanding its consideration before the
committee on resolutions is appointed.
The lily-white Republicans of Texas are
here stronger than ever before for separate
white and colored representation from
their State, and will press a resolution on
the old issue of separate primaries.
WHAT THE WEST J) EM AX US.
Silver Champions Wtll Force an Issue in
CLEVELAND, Ohio, June 18.— The
West is strongly in evidence among the
delegates who are here to attend the con
vention of the National League of Repub
lican Clubs, which begins to-morrow
morning. Their views are pronounced
upon the silver question, and the strong
likelihood is that they will force the issue
on the league whether the conservative
members from the East want it or not.
E. Thompson and Thomas Kearns of
Utah are at the Stillman.
"The only thing Utah wants at the
hands of the convention," said Thompson,
"is a resolution in favor of free silver. We
will be represented by a full delegation
and will vote as one man against any
straddle on the money question. The
West must be kept in line, and a free silver
declaration is the only thing that will do
James P. Byrne of Denver, who is here,
voiced the sentiments of his colleagues to
day when he said :
"Our train will »et in from Denver this
evening, and then you may begin to hear
something about silver. The chances are
that you will hear more about it in the
convention Wednesday. We will hold a
meeting early Wednesday morning to de
cide upon a plan of action. Literature
will be distributed and we will be prepared
to argue this question to the end.
"A straddle will not satisfy our people
this year. They accepted a compromise
last year, but the straddle will not go.
We had hard work in the Colorado con
vention to prevent the passage of a resolu
tion directing us to bolt the league meet
ing unless it declares for silver. Unless
the convention favors the white metal it
will be a fake. It will lose us the electorial
vote of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana,
Utah and New Mexico next year. With
free silver we car. hold all of them, but our
people will tolerate nothing else than
W. H. Burchell, the millionaire Sheriff
of Arapahoe County, Colorado, said:
"Every man, woman and child and dog
in Colorado is for free silver. We feel that
the only hope the Republican party has of
carrying the Western States next year is
that it gives silver the chance to which it
is entitled. We of Colorado are prepared
to do anything honorable to bring about
Ex-Governor Z. F. Mooay of Oregon is
at the Weddell House, as is also J. H. Hud
dleston of the same State. Mr. Huddle
ston said last evening that the Oregon del
egation would hold a conference to-morrow
to formulate plans for the convention. Un
til after a decision h#s been reached on
several matters he was averse to talking
about them. Concerning silver he said:
"We are through with that. We settled
it at our State convention, and did it hand
The Southern delegates who are coming
to talk "sound money," by which they
mean gold, and the Pennsylvanians who
are in thus far seem to be gold men, too.
The East and South talk tariff and seem
disposed to shift the silver question. The
outlook is that the silver men may force
an issue, but may be overpowered by num
bers. Senators Carter of Montana and
Dubois of Idaho are expected in the city at
any time to lead the silver forces.
The silver champion of the West, Colonel
Isaac Trumbo, is at the Hollenden. He
was seen by the Call correspondent and
asked what, in his judgment, was the most
important duty before the convention.
Colonel Trumbo said :
"We of the West will tight first, last and
all the time for the free and unlimited
coinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1. That
is the burning question of the hour. We
of the West have knocked for recognition
and we will try our utmost to get it on
this question now. I look upon the league
as the educator of the people. This ques
tion should be handled by it in no uncer
tain way. I will prepare a resolution, and
if we cannot get it through the committee
we will tight for it on the floor of the con
"If it does not go through will it be dis
astrous for the party in the West?" was
"No. we are Republicans *nd will remain
such in any event. I regard the silver
question as more an Eastern than a West
ern question, did the East realize the fact."
Senator Carter of Montana, who was
present, said :
"The league should declare for free and
unlimited coinage of silver at a ratio of 16
to 1, you understand. This and nothing
else is what the West asks."
"And what will be the result of a refusal
of this request?"
"I have no prediction to offer. The dec
laration for free and unlimited coinage of
silver is what the West asks. How else
can the party hope to win? There is the
whole Western country, unbrokenly Re
publican, demanding it."
They Hilt Try to lie feat All Free Coinage
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., June 18.-The
Philadelphia delegates to the annual con
vention of the Republican National
League left for Cleveland this afternoon.
Soon after their arrival to-morrow a cau
cus will be held by the entire Pennsylvania
delegation to discuss methods for defeat-
ing unlimited coinage ideas or any move
ment having for its object the passing of
resolutions committing the National
League in favor of free silver.

HeUgate* to Kentucky's Democratic Con-
vent ion Arts Instructed.
LOUISVILLE, Ky., June 18.-It is still
the open question who will win the Demo
cratic nomination for Governor, but it is
not an open question what the Democratic
State Convention will do about free silver.
Nearly half the delegates selected are
either instructed to vote against free silver
or are known to be opposed to it.
Many others who are friendly to silver
are individually, and as representatives of
the conventions which chose them, op
posed to the policy of making any declara
tion for free silver in the State platform.
Neither General P. N. Hardin nor Cassius
M. Clay has anything like enough in
structed votes to win on the first ballot.
There are 878 votes, and 440 are necessary
to a choice.
One hundred and fourteen out of 119
counties give Hardin for Governor 269,
Clay 201 and Alford 2. The uninstructed
vote is 364. The counties not heard from
have only thirteen votes.

and included none of the leaders of any of
the parties. There were not 150 present at

Republicans present. The majority of the
delegates were Populists. There were no
set speeches at the afternoon meeting, but
a number of delegates voiced a willing
ness to abandon their respective parties
for any party which should make the
strongest stand for the free and unlimited
coinage of silver. Congressman Sibley of
Pennsylvania, who came in this morning,
spoke briefly. He said:
"John Sherman and Grover Cleveland
are going to march to the polls and vote
together in 1896. They can't divide them.
People think we have come to drive out
parties. No effort has been made to de
stroy any party. If cholera should come

JUST LIKE A ROMANCE.
Delia Eloise Berry Becomes
the Bride of a Million-
After Reaching the Top of the Pro
fession She Marries George
CLEVELAND, Ohio, 'Tune 18.— One of
the favorites of the American light opera
stage was married here to-ilay to the man
whose devotion to her led him so far that
he sent her to Europe two or three years
ago for the purpose of permitting her to
complete her education in music.
The bride was Delia Eloise Berry, whose
birthplace and early home was in Califor
nia, but who went on the stage when
scarcely more than a child. Her first ap
pearance in this city, the present home of
her mother, Mrs. S. E. Berry, was made
four or rive years ago with the George A.
Baker Opera Company, with which she
played under the name of Oilie Archmere.
She has been here a good deal and has
been as much of a favorite in a social as
in an operatic way.
Three years ago when Miss Archmere
was playing in New York she suddenly
one day canceled her engagement and
sailed for Europe within a few hours. All
manner of gossip as to elopements and
the iike tilled the hour, and it was not till
the return of the singer some months later
that she made a public statement that she
had suddenly embraced the opportunity
afforded her by a friend to study music
This friend was George Dayton Morgan
of Brockport, N. V., who was deeply in
love with the pretty young actress, and
who urged her to marry him. Miss Arch
mere declined the honor till she should
complete her musical education and per
fect herself in her art.
She was determined, she told Morgan,
to be at the top in tier profession. Ac
cordingly Morgan, who is immensely rich,
sent her abroad to study. When she re
sumed the stage she attested her gratitude
for Morgan by adopting his name and ap
pearing under the name oi D. Eloise Mor
To-day she married her benefactor in
this city, the wedding being an early morn
ing affair in St. Paul's Protestant Episco
pal Church. They will go down the St.
Lawrence and to the seashore.
Of her early life in California little is
known here, but it is the gossip that she
made a marriage at the age of 16 years,
ten years or more ago, with a man named(
Wright, from whom she later became
estranged and divorced on account of her
determination to go upon the stage.

PRIESTS AMONG THE TORTURED.
Men, Women and Children Butch
ered In the Most Revolting
BOPTON, Mass., June 18.— A rehearsal
of incidents of the Sassoun massacre has
been obtained from refugees a.nd forwarded
rrom Bitlis, in the mountainous region of
Eastern Turkey, for publication in the
United States. It includes statements of
the most revolting outrages and cruelties.
Parih of Delvorig, the region of a He
tin k village of some thirty-five houses,
tells of the killing of her husband and his
brother, who were shot and bayoneted to
death. After mangling her husband's
body, the soldiers hung it to a tree, ex
posed to the sun and to be food for rapa
cious birds. The Kurds stripped the
women of their clothing aud burned their
dwellings and belongings.
At Aghpig, near the village, Mero was
burned in his nouse. Mero's small chil
dren were hacked to pieces by the soldiers,
and a woman's head was found and recog
One woman says: "I saw another
woman, Hapseh by name, a native of Dal
vorig, ripped up by the soldiers and her
child put on her breast and the two bay
oneted after that.''
Der (Priest) Hohannes of Semmal and
Der Bedraz ot Geliguzan were the woman's
uncles, and she, like others, says: "The
eyes of Der Bedraz were dug out and forty
bayonet wounds inflicted."
Der Hohannes of the forty who were
bayoneted in the ditch by the soldiers,
asked for a few minutes to pray, and was
told that if he would not change faith ,ha
would be killed. "I can't," he said, "but
ray people (many drawn up before him)
are free to do as they like." As they. too
refused to change their faith they were
bayoneted and thrown into the long
grave they had been forced to dig. The
soldiers took out Der Hohannes and com
pelled him to dance. Not only was he de
prived of his beard — the insignia of his
priestly office — but the cruel creatures took
along with the razor some of the skin and
flesh as well.
Having pierced his throat they forced
him to drink water, when it flowed from
the ghastly wound down on either side.
His head was kicked this way and that, as
if a football. Human flesh taken from
some of the mangled people was put into
his mouth. He too was pitched into the
ditch with more than two score men that
had the promise of safety if they would
cease resistance and surrender.
Numerous other witnesses corroborated
the stories of the torturing of this priest.
A dozen refugees, members of whose fam
ilies were bayoneted and uitched into the
terrible ditch, tell horrible stories of the
cruelties of the butcher soldiers.
Still another woman, named Mariam,
tells how her husband, Ghazar, was
pitched into that ditch and a two-year-old
boy burned in their house. She also tells
how in Gcliguzan a four-year-old boy, son
of Hebo, was sacrificed on a fire made for
the purpose by the soldiers. Mariam saw
from her hiding-place the soldiers hang
from a tree and flay alive one Harten.
There he was left hanging, a prey to rapa
cious birds and the scorching sun. Another
Armenian, pursued by nine soldiers, was
mangled, his skin and flesh scraped from
his face and his own llesh thrust down his
Numerous witnesses relate how Kalo's
wife, Torrey, and her child were flung into
the air on a bayonet. Kahzo of Shinik, 20
years of age, who had a babe of 4 months
in arms, tells how her husband, Hot;os,
and his brother, Ghazar, were killed; also
three others of the family, Tattar, Khacho
and Miaag, her mother, Merarao, hacked
and bayoneted all out of shape and left
unburied by a Tone. She was Geliguzan
and the Kurds did this in anger because
she pushed her sons into the fight.
Burfoo of Bitlis tells a thrilling story.
Her husband, Lillo, was iiterally hacked
to pieces, the remains of which she could
only gather up for some sort of a burial
after twelve days. Her two-year-old boy
was snatched from her arms to be stabbed
to death, her daughter of 10 years. Aghrout,
fell down dead from fright, while she (Bur
foo) made her escape.
Nearly a hundred terrorized one 3, and
among them twelve able-bodied men, de
cided to go to Kourdichaghas, in a not dis
tant village. En route they were sur
rounded by hundreds of the tribe, who
drove them like cattle into a valley. They
took the only weapons— their knives— from
the men, bound them and sent them to the
camp of the regular soldiers as sheep to
the slaughter. The women were stripped
of their clothing, a few of every rag,
counted, as if sheep for the yarding, and
kept under guard for the night.
After shivering in the cold, the next
morning they were again asked to deny
their faith, but not succeeding in this the
Kurds began to disband and the poor,
frightened ones were allowed to make
their escape. The wives were ready to fol
low their husbands to their fate, but were
not allowed. '
The testimony of all the other witnesses
is but repetitions of such unheard of cruel
ties as these.

MADRID, Spain, June 18.— Advices re

squadrons of cavalry have arrived there
and that six squadrons of cavalry have
arrived at Puerto Principe, capital of the
province of that name.
A dispatch from Havana says: The
autonomists and 'several leaders of the
revolution have held a conference at Puerto
Principe. After they had discussed the
situation, it is added, they decided that
the separatists were not in a position to
continue the struggle, so a committee was
appointed to go to Santiago de Cuba and
advise Maximo Gomez to abandon the war.
HAVANA, Cuba, June 18.— Maximo
Gomez has attacked Alta Gracia and

An Attach Upon Her by an £nglish
LONDON, Esq., June 18.— There was a
large and enthusiastic gathering at the
meeting to-day in the City Temple of the
British Woman's Christian Temperance
Miss Florence Balgarnie accused Miss
France 3E. Willard, president of the
Woman's Christian Temperance Union of
America, of being an apologist for the
lynchings in the southern part of the
Miss Willard made a spirited defense
of herself and of the union. A resolution
was carried unanimously declaring that
the council emphatically believed that
the American W. C. T. U. maintained to
ward the lynching question the same atti
tude as other Christian bodies, namely,
that under no circumstances must human
life be taken without due process of law.
The Daily News denounces the resolu

Temperance Association on the relief of
lynching as a mockery, and declares that
British women will to-day be ashamed that
even in an effusion of neighborly feeling
they consented to pass such a resolution.

It is doubtful if the Empress of Germany

despite business depression, the order had
in the last year gained instead of lost, and
had now thirty State councils and subordi
nate councils in ten other States. Maine,
Minnesota, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana
are the States where the flag of the order
has been unfurled during the last year.
Reviewing the condition of the order in
detail, touching on the Western States, he
reported that Nebraska gained six coun
cils, making eleven, but lost 150 members;
Colorado showed the largest gain of any
Western State, having 900 new members;
lowa shows a slight loss; Missouri shows
a gain in councils, but a loss in member
ship; Kansas gained 350 members.

LEFT A FAREWELL NOTE.
Bondsmen, However, Quickly
Capture the Derelict
MAKES A VERY LARGE BLUFF.
Threatens to End His Life With a
Big Revolver, Which He Tries
OMAHA, Nebr., June 18.— City Treas
urer Henry Bollin is a defaulter. Experts
are checking his books. The facts of the
shortage became known this morning and
Bollin at once disappeared, leaving a note
to his family saying he was disgraced.
His bondsmen, who are liable to the
amount of $1,000,000, set the police to look
ing for the man as soon as he disappeared,
suspecting that he was endeavoring to get
away. To-night he was located in a sub
urban roadhouse drunk. He was heavily
armed and when the officers approached
he attempted to draw a revolver with
which he declared he intended to end his
He surrendered without a struggle. He
is now in his bondsmen's hands. They
assert they will give him a chance and will
settle his shortage in full. The rumors of
alleged irregularities had their beginning
about a month ago when Mr. Bollin
refused to allow the Comptroller to check
up his books in compliance with a resolu
tion of the City Council.
Bollin has been drinking heavily of late
and has also lost considerable money in
stock speculation. To-day after the police
had surrendered Bollin to his bondsmen
they called a conference of the city officials.
Bollin declared that his accounts with the
Midland State Bank would check up all
He admitted that he had drawn from the
cash account, but insisted that the defici
ency could not be more than $10,000. He
had but little to say concerning what had
led to his shortage, and added that the ef
fects of his protracted intoxication had not
disappeared. At 7 o'clock City Comptroller
Olsen had completed a hurried checking
up of Bollin's accounts. The result indi
cated there was a shortage of $15,388 out
side the amount said to be lacking in the
account of the Midland State Bank. The
deposit blanks indicated Bollin had $19,
--000 deposited there, while the actual de
posit was only $10,000.
Bollin claimed, however, that the short
age was covered by a certificate of deposit,
and this item was not included in the total.
The amount given as the actual shortage
represents the money which has been
taken from the cash-drawer, and which
tallies with the tickets which are deposited
GLADSTONE AND VILLIERS
The Ex-l*remier'a Action Regarded as a
Jlloie to England.
LONDON, Exg., June 19. — The Times
announces that Mr. Gladstone has with
drawn from his pairing agreement with
Villiers because he wished to be regarded
as having an open mind on the Welsh
church disestablishment bill. In an edi
torial the Times says: Blow upon blow
has fallen on the Government recently, but
none is comparable to this, which means
the withdrawal of Mr. Gladstone's moral
support from Lord Rosebery's administra
tion. The immediate prestige of his name
has enabled the Government to weather
some very dangerous storms, and
it is the very foundation of the
political fabric of the present Government.
It is hardly possible to escape the conclu
sion that he extends his disapproval to
their* general policy, it is believed he
wanted a more drastic dealing with the
