Gen. l'ftltner Not n Candidate.
Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. a. The
largo assembly room of tho commercial
club was packed to the door with
about three hundred people at 2:30
o'clock Friday, the time set for the af
ternoon session. Congressman Bynuin
called tho confercuco to order, explain
ing that he did so in tho absence of
Gen. Bragg, chairman of the executive
committee who had Leon de
layed on his way from the cast.
A roll of the states was culled and It
was found that 33 states weroiopre
.sonted by committeemen pi esout, cither
in person or by proxy.
No time was wasted in determining
the main question which had already
been practically decided by a canvass
of the members of tho committee, fllr.
Ewinjj read the resolutions adopted at
the Auditorium conference in Chicago
as the authority for the action of the
"Mr. Chuirman, in order to carry out
the purpose set out iu tho resolution
just read, I move you that a committee
of five bo appointed by the chairto pre

to nominate a democratic candidate
for president and a democratic candi
date for vice president (applause,) and
that that committee report Its call to
this committee at 8:30 o'clock this even
Mr. Bynum named the following
committee: .1. II. Outhwaitc, Ohio;
Charles Tracey, New York; .1. M. Falk
ner, Alabama; L. C. ICrauthoff, Mis
souri; F. W. M. Cutoheon, Minnesota.
Tho main question of whether or not
a convention should Iks called having
thus been disposed of, the conference
proceeded to select a local convention,
and in this Indianapolis won right
Gen. John M. Palmer, of Illinois, ar
rived in company with his wife at five
o'clock Friday evening from Lawrence
ville, 111., where he had finished argu
ing a case at 11 o'clock. It did not
take him long to take himself com
pletely out of consideration as a possi
ble candidate for president on the
sound money ticket.
Ab soon as tho evening session was
called to order Mr. Bynum announced
that the first business would be the
permanent organization of tho pro
visional committee by election of a
chuirman and other officers. Gen.
Tracey, of New York, nominated Sena
tor John M. Palmer, of Illinois, for
chairman in a brief but stirring
speech. Tho name of Gon. Palmer was
greeted with loud applause and tho se
lection wus made by acclamation.
Messrs. Tracey, Outhwaitc and Hop
kins were appointed a committee to es

was greeted with three cheers and a

John R, Wil6on, of Indianapolis wab
made secretary upon motion of I M.
Martin, of Iowa, and John P. Fren.el,
of this city, was made treasurer, on
motion of L. C Krauthoff. Mr. Outh
waitc, chairman of the sub-committee,
then presented tho call for tho conven
tion as follows:
To tho Democrats of the United States:
A political party has always been defined to
ho an association of oters to promote tho suc
cess of political principles held In common.
The democratic party, during Its whole his
tory, had been pledged to promote tho liberty
of tho Individual, the security of prlrate
rlshts and property and the supremacy of law.
It has aluays Insisted upon a safe and stable
money for tbo people's use It has insisted
uoon the maintenance ot ths financial honor
of the nation, as well as upon the preservation
Inviolate of the institution established by the
constitution. These, its principles, were aban
doned y the supposed representatives of the
party at a national convention recently assem
bled at Chicago. The democratic party will,
therefore, cease to exist unless It bo pre
served by the voluntary action of such
ot Its members as still adhere to Its
fundamental principles No majority
of the members of that convention, however
large, hod any right or power to surrender
those principles. When they undertook to do
so, that asomblagecenscd lo bo a democratic
convention. The action tnUen. the irregular
proceedings, and tho platform enunciated by
that body were and are so utterly and Inde
fenslvely revolutionary. and consti
tute such radical departures from
the principles of true democracy,
which should characterize a sound and patri
otic administration of our country's affairs,
that it result are not entitled to tbo confi
dence or support of true democrats For tho
first time since the national parties wore
formed thero Is not before the American peo
plo a platform declaring tho principles
of the democratic party as recog
nized and most courageously and con
sistently administered by Jefferson,
Jackson and Cleveland nor are there nomi
nees for ttp ofllces ot president and vice pres
ident of tho United .States pledged to carry
thoso principles into practical effect. Tbo
faithful and true democrats of tho United
States arc determined that their principles
shall not be ruthlessly surrendered, nor tho
people be deprived of an opportunity (p vote
for candidates in accordance therewith.
Therefore, the national democratic party ot
tho United States, through Its regularly con
stituted committee, hereby calls a national
convention of that party, for the announce
ment of Its platform and tho nomination of
candidates for the offices of president and vlco
president of the United States and tho tran
saction of such business as is inci
dental thereto, to bo held at Indian
apolis on Wednesday, tho second day of
September, 1895, at 13 o'clock noon, and here
by requests that the members of tho party In
the several states who believe In sound mon
ey and ths preservation of law and order, and
who are unalterably opposed to tho platform
adopted and candidates nominated at Chica
go, will select In uch manner as to them
sbill seem best, a number of delegates
to tbo same, equal to twlco the num
ber of electoral votes to which such
states are respectively entitled. Such dele
gates shall bs duly accredited, according to
tbo usages of the democratic party. Their
credentials shall be forwarded or delivered tc
the secretary of this committee with all con
venient speed and this committed will make
up and announce the roU of the .flelegaUs en

Thirty Houses in "Happy Uole," Rich
mond, Covered Tho Inmates Rescued
Richmond, Ind., Aug, 8. The great
est Hood that eastern Indiana ever wit
nessed occurred In this city and county
Friday, and the total damage will ex
ceed S'P.OOO, while by some It is be
lieved that it will be more than $100,
000. At four o'clock a terrific storm
sttuck the city, accompanied by the
most brilliant display of lightning and
a cloudburst. Five residences in the
city were ntruek by lightning, and the
cloudburst completely flooded the city.
The White river, which has been swol
len by recent ruins, could not remain
within its banks, and at 0 o'clock the
overflow commenced. The driving rain
continued, and at 8 o'clock the great
stone dam at the Nixon Paper mill gave
way and the rushing torrent of water
poured into the low lands in the north
end of the town.
"Happy Hole," a section of the city
in the river bottom, was completely
covered. Thirty houses were flooded,
and the inmates were forced to flee to
the upper stories. The fire companies,
three in number, wore called to the
scene, and they, with great crow s of
shopmen, who were at work in the vi
cinity, succeeded in rescuing the wom
en and children, although the task
was u difficult one. The Nixon paper
mills were almost hidden from view,
only the top story appearing above the
raging water. The machinery wa-,
damaged to a great extent and the
large stock of paper on hand ruined.
The loss could not be estimated Fri
day night. The Richmond Light, Heat
and Power Co.'s plant suffered greatly.
Water roso to tho depth of three feet
on the floor, covering the machinery
and rendering it unfit for use. The
damage done will amount to S-20,000.
Tho city Friday night was in darkness,
and it will bo a weclc before the elec
tric plant is started again. The Star
Piano Co., whose factory is in the ilvcr
bottom, wus also flooded, and tho dam
age is quite severe. Tho Hoosier Drill
works were damaged considerably by
tho heavy rainfall, the basement being
flooded and greutquuntiticsof material
ltichniond park (Glen Miller) was a
scene of ruin Friday night. Roadways
had been washed away by the rain and
bridges were torn fromtheirabutments
At Ilngcrstown, this county, wheietho
Wayne county fair was being held,
ureal damage was done. Tho levee at
the canal gave way, flooding tho fail'
grounds to a depth of several feet.
Tho large number of horses and cattle
on tho grounds wore rescued, but
they w ere compelled to swim to the
hillsides. A bad washout on the Pan
Handle occurred six miles east of here,
and reports received Friday night from
all portions of tho country show that
much more damage was dono than was
anticipated earlier in the day.
Tho total rainfall for the 84 hours
ending Friday night at 11 o'clock is
fivo inches, which is unprecedented in

A BIG SCHEME.
The State of Kentucky May Go Into the
Klectric tight Business
Frankfort, Ky., Aug. 8. It has
been about definitely decided by the
sinking fund commissioners io carry
outa supposedly economic enterprise by
which the state will light its own public
buildings, offices and the public square,
and unless present intentions are
changed a big electric light plant, to be
operated by a trained engineer with
the assistance of prisoners, will be
placed in the penitentiary, while tho
wires will be run in to the public build
ings and grounds. It is claimed that
the state, which uses a great deal of
light, will save much by gas and elec
tric light bills by this means, and that
the original cost of tho plant will soon
, bo more than saved.
The local (ins and Electric Light Co.
is supposed to have exclusive privileges
in Frankfort, and it does not seem to
j have occurred to the state officials that
this company may complain to tho
, council and object to the council per
mitting the poles and wires of
any other lightlnvj concern being run
through any of the streets of the city.
None of the officers interested in tho
local lighting company has been asked
about tho matter, and what is said
about their possible fight is only con
jecture. INTENSE HEAT.

Hero is an illustration of the way tho

owned in East St. Louis, was struck by
three barrels of syrup, a tierce of lard
and one barrel of vinegar. Absolutely
the only uninjured parts are the saddle
and the Morgan & Wright quick-repair
tires, which were'full of air when the
machine was found. Even if these
tires had been punctured, unless se
verely torn, any one of the holes could
have been repaired by tho quick-repair
device in thorn, without trouble. Riders
of these tires, when they have a punc
ture, need only bo careful to i pump as
much air as possible into tho tiro before
inserting tho quick-repair tool. The
repair can be mado in two minutes, at
tho roadside, without taking tho tire
