Ohio democracy have been expecting aniag

this Gibraltar, but tonight they were di
appointed becatiM the (Mil Konian (Thur
man) failed to appear. He was inviteil
many weeks ago, but failed to answer the
invitation, not even courteously declining
This gave the impresMoti that he had repu
diated the party of fraud and forgery and
would not lend his Unman virtue t the de
cayed cau-e. Hut late tonight. Iien the
meeting liail begun, he telegraphed as fol
lows: "1 greatly regret I can not attend your
meeting tonight. It would give me gn-at
pleasure to eak to the democracy of Hut
ler in behalf of the good cau-.e and of
I'onell and the rest of the ticket, but I am
not well enough to lee home."
This was read to the audience and was
given more applauv than Powell's speech.
Hon. Jim Campbell, I'owell's chief compet
itor for the nomination, presided. There
was a long delay because of the Duck
worth club, which arrived late from Cin
cinnati and joined clubs from Dayton and
other cities for a long tramp through the
citv. At last they armed at the stand
erected on the square, facing the historic
home of Lewis D. Campbell. Here were
grouped an unu-ual number of Ohio
democrats known to fame. Martin A.
Koran, also a competitor of Powell's at
Clet eland. was there. General Eb
enezer Finley. Judge Seney. D. C. Cool
man. Oeoree W. Harer, W. II. I,eete. and
in fact all the candidates of the democratic
state ticket were present save Critchtield.
1 The square was well filled with people, for
ifn . - !. ,.m.l t. .-
single cheer, and the evasive method of it
caused se eral statesmen like Koran and
Campbell to smile.
When Powell had finished, Uuthwaite,
Faran. Finley anil all the candidates were
introduced, making short speeches and
arousing no particular enthusiasm. Sev
eral of the adiertised orators failed to ai
pear. and while the meeting was large In
attendance it lacked the usual enthusiasm
which generally prevails in llamihon on
such occasion. In fact the democrats
were terribly disappointed in Powell, of ;
whom much had been exiecled. To make
a show of harmony Powell was the guest of
J mi Campbell, ho entertained the follow
ing at supper: T. K. Powell, Hon. J. II.
Outhwaite. Miss Mollis Owens, Hon. V.
II. Pugh. Claude Meeker and Frank H.

offering the pipe of peace the occasion was

The concert civen by the Ohio Church

linrhly eiitertainine performance, and the
audience was amply repaid for their at

manner in which she rendered several very
beautiful and difficult selections. Each

A mule attached to Conklln & Co.'s Mar

meditative way in front of the grocery
about 11 o'clock this morning, when he tie
came frightened at something. He laid his
ears down on his back, elevated his tail, and
started down Market street as if he were
allot out of a gun. Near Market square the
wagon collided with one of Denny liovv

mule stopped stock still and several persons
started towards mm. hen they got within
a few feet of him the mule again laid back
his ears and, shutting his eyes tight, began
to kick like a candidate who fails to receive

THE TRIP TO HAMILTON.
The.lenemon Club at the Opening of the
Democratic. Campaign Ljist Night.
There were just 105 of the Jefferson club
of this city who took in the excursion to
Ilamlltain last evening. The boys are doing
a good deal of kicking over the accommo-
il ttlons ottered by the Bee Line, and both
sides of the question are given in order to
be entirely fair.
The boys state that the train didn't leave
the city until -1:30. a half hour later than
prearraiigement, anj did not get to Hamil
ton until S o'clock, two hours later than
prearrangement; that they had supposed,
according to the agreement, that the train
was theirs, as they had practically chartered
it; that at Dayton the train was
crowded by a big party of excursion
ists to whom the road had sold
twenty tickets at 25 cents for round trip,
and that passengers were received at all
UHerinediate stations, greatly to the dis-
jn-omiort ot the bprlngheld excursionists.

perietrated upon the genial Tom Mulcabey
on the way down. Just after the start was

Last evening a Springfield man received
a letter at the postofthe, which had been
written to him over three weeks ago, but
addressed, unfortunately, to Springfield,
111., instead of Springfield. Ohio.
"Kither queer, isn't it?" he remarked to
the delivery cleric.
"Xot at all unusual though." was the
clerk's reply. "Every day we have con
