this plan has never been followed
in electing delegates to conventions
to nominate State tickets the usual
simpler method of county mass con
ventions was adopted withoutmuch
opposition The chair then ap
pointed Messrs Trimble Meacham
and Dishman to prepare the call
and a recess was taken for thirty
minutes The sub committee re
ported the followingcall which was
adopted by a unanimous vote

The nomination of Judge 1 F
Dempsey of Hopkins county is a
foregone conclusion He has an in
structed majority of the delegate
votes and will probably be nomina
ted without the formality of a roll
call Mr Harry Tandy of Mc
Cracken and Mr Webb C Bell of
Christian may be given some com
plimentary votes if there is a call
of counties but neither is a candi
date in the sense of making an ef
fort to secure the nomination
With the nomination of the can
didate settled in advance the con
vention will partake more of the
nature of a Democratic love feast
with a general round up of the can
didates for the state oflices nearlv
all of whom will be on hand
In order to give these gentlemen
an opportunity to meet and mingle
with the dear people and thePen
nyrile people are the best on earth
there will be no effort to rail
road matters through the conven
tion The convention will organ
ize after the arrival of the 150 p
m train and probably appoint
committees to report af a night ses
sion and give the afternoon up to
the candidates to address the con
vention
It is not expected that anything
will be proposed in the platform to
create discord in the party An
endorsement of the Chicago plat
form and the good work done by the
last legislature is aboui all that
will likely be touched upon Reso
lutions of this conservative charac
ter would of course be satisfactory
NO 20
with no opposition from the friends
of any candidate
The candidates for State offices
will be on hand Among those now
here or due to arrive on the morn
ing trains are the following
I or Governor P Wat Hardin
William Goebel and W J Stone
For Lieutenant Governor W P
Tliorne J E Kelly and M D

For Auditor Gus Coulter and

The delegates began to arrive on
the afternoon trains yesterday
afternoon in large numbers The
I C train brought in about 30 and
the L N tram from Henderson
brought a big crowd from the river
counties
At night the First and Third dis
trict delegates and prominent visit
ors from Louisville and other points
came in and the rest of the dele
gates will arrive on to day strains
Capt Stone has head quarters
on the first floor of Hotel Latham
and Senator Goebel is in room 210
on the parlor floor Mr Coulter is
at the Phoenix and his opponent
Mr Chenault at the Latham Most
of the other candidates are at the
latter hotel
The organization of the conven
tion had not been given much con
sideration last night as the great
body of the delegates did not ar
rive until late in the night
It is probable that by general
consent a Stone man will be agreed
upon for temporary chairman and
that the committees will consist ot
one member from each of four dis
tricts and two or three members
from the district at large on each
committee with a fair representa
tion to each ol the gubernatorial
candidates
CAN BE RAISED
Thinks Capt Ryman Owner of
the Boat Buttorff
Capt Thos Rinan owner ol the
Buttorff sunk at Clarksv ille has
made a minute examination ot the
vessel and thinks that she can be
raised and that it will probably not
cost more than SI 500 to accomplish
the work No attempt will be -made
to float the vessel until the watei
recedes however There is talk ot
lawsuits growing out ot the disas
ter Several thousand dollars
worth of goods were lost and the
ow ners may try to hold the ow ner
of the steamboat responsible on the
plea that the accident could have
been avoided
