Convention for tne nomination of
Sheriff for this county, held In this city,
unpleasantness arose between City Editor
Ira B. Forbes ol the Evening Post and
Chairman I fan. JL Warren Johnson of
EafieM, which resulted in a challenge to
fight a duel. It seems that Mr. Forbes
had obtained tho names of all delegates
when City Editor John P. ONeil of tho
Evening Herald entered tho convention.
Tho Herald is a new, bright evening
paper, just started, and a rivalry exists
between the two papers. Mt ONcil
asked Forbes to let him copy his list, as Is
customary among reporters here, but
Forbes refusal to grant tho request.
"When tho committ on credentials was
appointed Forbes cavo to the chairman of
tho committee tho list as already compiled
by him. When the conuniUco had concluded
its deliberations Forbes took Ujo
report from tho chairman and read it to
the convention. Tlw ournniitWs report
was accepted by tho comrention, nnd thus
became tlw property of tho convention.
O'Neil then asked Forbes, who still retained
tlw copy, for its oand Forbes inquired
wiry he wanted fcL CXNeil replied

then refused to allow u copy to be made,
T3ica OTOcil appealed to Chairman

were not public and the property of the
convention. Forbes, perutin in his
refusal to allow a copy to be mode,
warm words passed between him tuid

Forbes, who dcmiHrdcd an explanation
from Johnson when the convention should
adjourn. Alter adjournment hot words
passed between Forbes and Johnson, in
which Forbes said Johtwson was no gentleman,
and characterized his action as a
mean contemptible trick,toomean for any
man. All of this passed in tho presence
and full hcariug of pjverol delegates to
the convention. O'XdAin the ineantimo
remained us a silent spectator, but freed
his mind to Forbes o&cs his talk with
After the convention adjourned, John-bon
went to tho Evening Post editorial
rooms, calling for Forbes end Managing
Editor Sperry, and demanded a retraction
of the words used by Irbcs and an
apology. Mr. Forbes refused to retract
them. Mr. Sperry commanded him to do
kOj and he refused. Then Mr. Johnson
"I diall now withdraw and allow you
twenty-four hours in which to apologize,
nnd if you do not see fit to do to in that
time Ibliall write you a letter naming

reduction of Stato avcraccs & Iri Michigan
from GO to 45; in VLconsin .from 70
to 50; in Ohio from 62 to C3; in New York
from 77 to 57. The reduction is seven
nointa in Illinois, and nvo in Indiana.
The high September Cgorcs have been
materially reduced by frost Tho Iocs of
condition from drought has become more
apparent, causing slight redactions of 3io
September estlmato of many of
States. Tho general average of condition
for'the entire field
points less than on tho first of foptcmber,
four from frosts in tho north and two from
drought on tho Atlantic seaboard and
and sonth of tho frosted areas. It fa five

while there is four per cent increase in
area. It is points lower than
the October avcrago of tho census crop.
Tho product of the vcar will be closo to
sixteen hundred million bushels, with
more soft corn than last year, mostly in
regions that consume their entire crop.
The returns of yield of wheat per acre
indicate a production of about two and a
fourth bushels per aero less thin tho crop
of last year. It is but nine aud a half
bushels er acre in Ohio, ten iu Illinois,
nnd but a fractiou above ten in Indiana.
It is above ten in Michigan, and thirteen
in Minnesota, Iowa and California, The

and Nebraska exceed sixteen and
the Kansas average is about seventeen.
These averages are in several states based
on svnteinatirallv recorded result) of

of the season may cause slight local
changes, it ia certain that tho final average
of yield will uot differ much from
11,3 bushoN per aero. The aggregate
will exceed four hundred millions
of bushels, and may reach four

New Youk, Oct 14.-Charles 13.
M. D.f a proinineut physician residing
at No. 1U Kast Forty-sixth street,
died Friday morning after a short illness.
He was taken sick at his oilice, No. 54
West Forty-fifth street, while his wife was
summering at Fire Island, and having all
necessary comforts there rcfu.ed to be removed
to his equally luxurious home.
Dr. Blumenthal stood high in the
homeopathic profession and devoted
niuch time and sent a great deal
of money on the several medical
establishments about the city. lie settled
in South Carolina fifty years ago, shortly
after his arrival here from
in Prussia. Subsequently he removed to
Carlisle, Pa., where he became yi'ry popular
in social as well as medical circles. He
served as Grand Commander of the Grand
Lodgo of Knights Templar of the State.
From Carlisle tlio doctor came to this' city,
where ho soon made a name for himself,
standing high in the profession. He was
seventy years old at the time of hU death.
When the Cremation Society was organized
Dr. Blumenthal was one of tho
prime movers in the scheme, strongly advocating
that method of disposing of the
dead. Lotrg lefore his death he had
given orders that his remains should ho
cremated, and during his illness this request
was reiterated. Mrs Blumeuthiil
has no objections to tho incincnition of
her htfehand'tbody. It is expected that
the remains will be taken to the Morgue
Crematory ut Washington, Pa.

Tho Coroner was at once notified
and the remains biought up. The woman
was cut all to pieces. She had full,
thick dark hair and wore a light calico
dress, A small sum of money and a letter,
dated Chicago, signed Jacob Artman, and
seemingly from lie r brother, were found
on her person. A stranger who
made his appearance at tho round-house a
short time oelore, charging that his wife
was hidden there and demanding her release,
was arrested. lie gives his name as

At tho Coroner's inquest he claimed

child af Matthow Alday, but was apprehended
before he fully uccotuplbdied hir.
nurx)se and turned over to couple of
haiilfs for conveyance to Bainbridge for
safe-keeping. When the otlicers reached
a ferry u few miles below Spring Creek u
baud of mounted masked men overtook
them on the gallop and oetnuiided that
Kyle be turned over to them. Tho bail-ills
refused to accede to tho domund, but
a short and decisive battle, during which
several shots were fired, but no mortal
wounds indicted, resulted in the prisoner's
rescue. Nothing was known of his
fate, however, until this morning, when
his lifeless body was found iyirig in tho
creek, riddled with bullets from head to
foot and disgustingly mutilated by a
swarm of vultures, which were feasting on
it when it was discovered.
