Columbus, O., Aug. 27. The John
son program was carried out com
pletely in the democratic state con
vention yesterday. Although the op
position obstructed the proceedings
with minority reports for some
hours, the name of John L. Zimnler
mun, of Springfield, was not present
ed for the gubernatorial nomination
and every noininnticn on the state
ticket, including Mayor Tom L. John
son for governor, was made by ac
clamation. Even after the chair an
nounced that the name of Mayor
Johnson was the only one before the
convention for governor then were
some dissenting Zimmerman votes on
the motion to make the nomination
unanimous, but the Zimmerman sup
porters subsided after the selection
for governor and senator were made.
The opposition by various obstruc
tive movements kept the convention
in continuous session for nbout seven
hours. While minority reports were
presented from the committees, the
fight that worried the Johnson mana
gers was on the scnatorship. The
only ballots, forced on the dominant
element were in that contest. The
minority report on rules, which was
intended to omit the endorsement of
a senatorial candidate, was defeated
by a vote of 211 ayes to 44S nays,
which was considered a test vote be
tween Johnson and Zimmerman, af
ter all the contested scats had been
decided in favor of the former.
On naming the candidate for sena
tor, the Johnson supporters were di
vided among themcselves. Mayor
Johnson and ex-Congressman John
Lentz have been very close personally
and politically for years, but a most
intense feeling existed between them
yesterday, at least on the part of
Lentz, who openly accused Johnson
of favoring for senator a man who
hnd voted against Bryan. Zimmer
man men had intended voting for
Clarke, the Johnson candidate for
senator, ns they said he represented
the conservative views, but when
Lentz opened a fight on Johnson on
the senatorial candidate the opposi
tion resumed its obstructive tactics
and voted for Lei;tz li.r senator, thus
driving the Johnson faction to the

floor of the convention to nnme

vote for Saltzgnber represented the
ultra silver men who were the most
ardent supporters of Johnson, but
who said they would support no man
who had voted against Bryan. M. 12.

John II. Clarke, who "will canvass
the state with Mayor Johnson, has
been a prominent attorney nt
Youngstown for many years, but he
is now located in Cleveland, which
city lias four prominent candidates,
the republican ns well as the demo
cratic candidates for senator and gov
ernor. Next to the commanding presence
of Johnson, was tile part of Clarke in
tiie convention. He made two master
ly speeches, one presenting the name
of Johnson and the other in accept
ing the senatorial nomination.
With the single exception of the
senatorial endorsement, the Johnson
men controlled the convention ns
fully ns ut the district mid commit
tee meetings on Tuesday. The con
vention was as distinctly with Bryan
on national as with Johnson on stato
issues. The speeches of both Tem
porary Chairman Saltzgaher and
Permanent Chairman Goeke insisted
that if the democratic party is to
change its policy to suit the times,
the change 'must be mnde by the
friends of the party und not by its

Cor'n Cnilso IIopcIcnu.
New York. Sept. 1. -Again on Mon
day the beautiful cup defender Hell
mice failed to register her third vic
tory over Upton's challenger because
the wind died to nothing and the
time limit of five nnd a half liotira
expired before she could reach the
finish line. Her margin was approxi
mately the same a5 on Thursday last.
She was less than half a mile from
the finish when the gun iiounded. The
Shamrock III was a faint blur on the
horizon, fully two and half miles
Beliance's failure to score the race
was the more exasperating because
her ultimate triumph is now conced
ed, even by Sir Thomas himself, to be
simply a formality. The superiority
of the Herreshof boat in any kind
of weather is acknowledged by the
yachting critics of both sides of the
Atlantic and yesterday's fluke only
prolongs the agony of the contest
that lias already been decided.
The waning interest in the cup
races was strikingly illustrated by
the size of the observation fleet, if
the ships which went down to the
ocean race course could be dignified
by such a title. Outside of the rev
enue cutters which patrolled the
course, it consisted of half a dozen
side-wheelers with uNnost empty
decks, a few tugs and a score of
The race was spiritless from the
beginning. It was laid 15 miles to
windward up the Long Island shore
rind return. Its saving feature was
the start, in which Capt. Wringe, by
n pretty piece of maneuvering, neatly
turned the tables on the Yankee skip
per and captured the windward berth.
12 ven so, the yachts crossed the Vine
abreast like a harnessed team of
But within 15 minutes the defender
was showing her heels to the chal
lenger and when the float at the
outer mark wns reached she round
ed it 20 minutes and 23 seconds ahead
of her rival. In the five times the
boats have met this was by far the
worst beating Shamrock lit has had
in windward work-. The only inter
est which remained after that was as
to whether Beliance would be able
to reach the finish line in time to
score the race.
When oft' Long Beach at 1:45 the
defender was two miles ahead, having
added the second mile by literally
outpointing the challenger and n't
the same time maintaining equal
speed. The mark was then in plain
view and the wind was softening.
Beliance made several short hitches
which brought her to the turn.' The
challenger's cause was absolute
hopeless when the defender rounded
the mark. The British boat was more
than two miles alee.
Tiie Director of a Street Hallway are
Clinrtfcd unci Their Trial HesIi'H.
Newark, N. J., Sept. 1. The seven
members of the executive committee
of the board of directors of the
North Jersey Street Ituilway Co. ap
peared Monday in the Essex county
court for trial on nn indictment
charging them with manslaughter.
On February 10 last .nine Newark
high school students were killed in
a collision between a Clifton avenue
car and an express train. Indictments
were returned against the directors.
When court reconvened, Prosecutor
Biker opened for the stste, reciting
the nature of the accident, the
crowds on the tracks and dangers of
crossings. On the morning of the ac
cident, he said, the crossing was cov
ered with snow and ice so that the
brake shoes of the car were clogged.
In consequence the car slipped down
the incline, smashed through the
gates and collided with the train. He
said that common prudence demand
ed clean track, empty platforms, so
as not to interfere with the motor
man, and a safety derailing switch.
These were absent in this case.
He then named the defendants in
dividually nnd stated that they were
aware of the, condition of the tracks;
that they knew about 'the crossings
nnd they hnd done nothing to avoid
the nccident. He asked that they be
adjudged guilty of the charge in the

New Albany, hid., Sept. 2. As a re
sult of his effort In the capacity of
nmateur detective to run down n
bill raiser, Charles Marshall, of Bego,
Orange county, Indiana, was so badly
beaten by his prospective prisoner
that he will die. Marshall is a young
countryman who shortJy lifter Join
ing an amateur detective association
received a letter from n man in Chi
cago offering to sell $500 in genuine
currency for $200. The letter was so
worded as to give the idea that the
bills were raised. Marshall opened
correspondence and arranged to meet
the man, who gave his name as Hite,
in a secluded spot near New Albany.
The nmntcur detective borrowed
$200 and when the negotiations with
Hite reached the point where the
moneys were to be exchanged, ho
told Ilitc he was under arrest. Bite
knocked Marshall down with n large
stone and proceeded to batter his
victim's head Into n pulp. "When
Marshall was found horribly beaten
several hours later the $200 he had
taken to the spot was gone. Physi

Pittsburg, Pa., Sept. 2. The special
convention of the sheet mill lodges of
the Amalgamated association closed
last evening by voting to retain the
present limit of output. Tills was a
surprise, as n modification of the
limit, if not its complete removal,
A committee of independent manu
facturers appeared before the dele
gates and made a pica for the re
moval of the limit, but their efforts
were unavailing. The manufacturers
argued that as non-union mills hnd no
limitation plncctl on their product
they were getting trade that right
fully belonged to the plants working
under the Amalgamated scale, and
that it would be to the advantage of
the Amalgamated men to remove the
limit so the manufacturers could be
on a par with other firms in competi
tion. The delegates could not agree
with the manufacturers, especially at
this time when so few mills were run
ning. President Theodore Shaffer did not
attend the convention and his absence
caused much comment.

False river he was fired upon from
a cotton field. The first shot struck
the horse which the negro wns riding
nnd the second struck Planving in
the back of the head, penetrating his

vising them not to work for or to
have anything to do with white peo
ple, and it is believed that these al
leged utterances had much to do
with the assassination.
