hour next Monday morning. Tho train
on which ho will travel by the Penn
sylvania line is hot one of tho fast ex
presses, and the democratic candidate
will havo time for Btops, short talks
and handshaking. The train will

o'clock and the time of arrival Monday
at somo of tho principal points
en route is as follows: Ft Wayne,

Bryan will not now positively state
just whero he "will speak In Ohio, and
all he will say is that any addresses

feeling ofthe candidate as he passes
through rind the" reception accorded
him by ine people en route. If there
is time enough he will surely speak at
Ada, Crestline and Alliance, where
considerable time can be had. Ho is
urged also to talk at Canton, Massillon,

reserve his voico for the great effort
in Madison Square Garden, when he
will respond to the formal ratification

Thirty-Nine States Will Be Rep

Democrats in Indianapolis.
There Will lie Considerable Opposition to
n Third Ticket by jjonthnrn and Eatt.
ern Delegate No Word of Kncour-
nftement i'rom Mr. Cleveland.
4- 'if '
Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 7. Tho In
dications point to a large representa
tion of distinguished democrats, aside
from the members of tho committee.
It i known that at least thirty-five and
possibly thirtyVnine states will be rep
resented by committeemen.
Tho meeting of the committee will
be held at tho Commercial club begin
ning at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon and
it is not likely that tho committee will,
at this session, determine anything
further than the question of whether
or not to call a convention. The situa
tion in eneh state, as explained by its
representatives, will be carefully can
vassed before a conclusion on this sub
ject is reached. Then if It Is deter
mined to call a convention, the time
and place will probably be left to be
determined at a session Saturday morn
It is apparent that there will be not
a little apposition to a third ticket
coming from the southern and eastern
states, where tho sound money demo
crats prefer to "take their medicine
straight," as they express it, and vote
for McKinlcy. "I, myself, think a
third ticket is a good thing," said
Mr. Ballard, of Atlanta, "but tho
most of our people in Georgia
do not believe in it. They want to see
Bryan defeated and believe that the
surest way of doing it is by voting for,
McKinley. The eastern people, so far
as I can learn, feel very much tho
same way. Another point which
holds them back is that by declaring
for a third ticket they might lose
their hold upon the organization and
once they should lose that they would
be practically out of politics. I want
to make sound money speeches in the
campaign, but I would rather do it in
behalf of a straight democratic, sound
money ticket than for the republican
candidates. I want to bo able to look
any democrat in tho eye and be able to
tell him that I um as good a democrat
as ho is."
A canvass made of the sentiments of
tho S3 committeemen who will be In
Friday's meeting, shows that 29 of them
will favor another convention and
ticket. The six who aro opposed be
cause they would rather make the fight
and let voters go for tho republican
ticket include Texas, Georgia, Ala
bama and three eastern states.
The northern states of the west und
middle west, where the fighting ground
Is supposed to bo is in favor of a new
ticket This will be decided upon at
Friday's meeting and a sub-committee
will bo appointed to draw up nn ad
dress to tho sound money democrats of
tha country, giving the reasons why
a third ticket is necessary.
Much comment is c.cited by tho at
titude of the eastern leaders. While
all the eastern states, except New Jer
sey and Delaware, will bo represented
at Friday's meet ing, they will not be
represented by party leaders nor by
men who havo the party organization
behind them. Neither Mr. Cleveland nor
any of the men closo to him has spoken
a ord of encouragement for tho move
ment, and tho impression is fast grow
ing that they prefer to have the sound
money democrats make a fight for
principle and throw its strength to the
support of the republican ticket.
The democratic "sound-money" dele
gates met at two o'clock Friday after
noon In the Commercial club, 'J hi
majority of delegates took it that
they had not come in a delibera
tive capacity, but to eairy out tho
insti notions of the Cliic.igo confer
ence on the question of time and
place of a second democratic conven
tion. Nevertheless there was a senti
ment that the question as to u sepa
rate convention and ticket might bo
reconsidered. This sentiment was con
fined to tho east and to Tens. The
Tesans announced tlwt, if tho confer
ence showed a strong preference for
another ticket, they would fall in with
that purpose, 1 lie cull tor a conven-J
tion will probably be issued Saturday.
The choice for u head for the ticket
seems to be John M. Palmer or Gen.
Brnggi though occasionally another
name is mentioned.
At. 3 p, m. Congressman Bynum called
tho conference to order. A motion
was cairied, delaying the ipermanent
organization untJl 8 p. m , owing to the
delay to Gen. Bragg's train, which is
late, owing to a washout. The con
ference procedded undor temporary or
ganization. Death I roui Ilput In St. LouU.

Columbus, O., Aug. 7. The state
board of agriculture issued its crop
bulletin for August 1 Friday. It says:
hince the last report, July 1, most dis
astrous results have befallen the grain
crops, and not a little damage to tho
potato crop Oats, which showed such
flattering prospects on an increased
acreage, hao in many portions of the
state been ruined or very badly dam
aged by incessant rnlns. The sheaves
In the fields are rotting and will be
worthless for market, while much has
not been cut, it being impossible to get
a binder into the tields. The estimate
of tho crop is 81 per cent, against 101
last month. A large quantity of the
very short wheat crop had not gone in
to the barns or stack when the rains
came 00. and all standing in the sheaf
is damaged and much of it ruined. It
is sproute 1 and the sheaves are green.
The average condition is 41 per cent, a
further reduction of four points since
.luly 1. The report closes with these
words: "This has been a most
disastrous season for the farmers
of Ohio, who have been contend
ing, first, with the winter
hilling of wheat, and, later, with wa
ter, windstorms, iiisects and pests
damaging the maturing crops so that
the end of the year must show very
little, if any, profits.'' The following
are tho more important figures in the
report: Wheat, 41 per cent; oats, 81;
timothy, 7'2; potatoes, 9'2; tobacco, 89;
apples, Cli; peaches, 79; pears, 03;
grapes, 72; berries, 03.

H. Furlong, who reside at I'leasant

by Coroner Fumlerburg. After the de
mise of the child an autopsy was held,
which developed the fact that the little
one's skull hud been fractured and that
the brain had been lacerated Fur
long's neighbors claim that he has al
ways been hostile to the child, alleging
that he was not its futhsr, und that
he hid rcpiutedly made throals con
cerning lile child, and gone as far
as suggesting to its mother that
it would be better off if it were
poisoned. lie claims that the frac
ture of tho skull was due to tho
child's falling from a chair, while his
wife says that it was caused by tho
striking of its head accidentally
against the side of the door while be
ing taken from one room into another.
The conflicting stories have aroused
the neighbors and they were instru

J. C. Hull ilveii a I'rellmlnnry Hear
ing at St. I'aul.
St. Paul, Aug. 7. Rev. .1. C. Hull,
who was arrested Wednesday evening
charged with administering poison to
his wife, was up in the municipal court
Thursday morning. His case was post
poned for a week w ithout bail. Hull
claims his wife is insane and has been
ever since they wero married, somo fif
teen years ago, but he has tried hard
to keep tho secret from the public.
Dr. Hawkins, their family physician,
scouts tho idea, and says ho has waited
on Mrs. Hull for tho past three years,
doctoring her for stomach trouble.
About six months ago he noticed
strong signs of arsenic poisoning and
believes Mrs. Hull to bo a case of slow
poisoning. Wednesday evening, Miss
lilnnehe, the 18-year-old daughter of
tho Hull's, came running for Dr. Haw
kins saying her father had given Mrs.
Hull poison in her medicine and that
sho was dying. Hence the arrest.
