Sepaua, M.v, April 8. The town Is
already well tilled with delepat?s to the

Filley party from St Louis has Its head

VAX HORN DELEGATION,
from Kansas City, came In at noon to
day, and It Is not easy yet to make an ac
curate approximation of the strength of
the two elements in the convention. The
Hoodlums claim two-thirds of the :';0
delegates, and certainly have more
strength than they have been credited
with by their opponents. Filley continues
to be all for harmony, and professes to be
anxious to avoid anything like trouble.
His position is that he will submit to the
will of the majority, whatever It is. There
is talk, especially among the Hoodlums.

ANOTIIEK TOM SCOTT.
Failure of Hia Little Scheme to Secure
Chicago, III., April 8. The Chicago
thief, Thomas Scott, alias "Scotty,"
who created a sensation in Jackson,
Mich., the other day by imparting some
pretended information of the Crouch
mystery to the police of Jackson,
is well known to the detectives of this city.
Scott is in the Jackson Jail awaiting
trial for stealing an overcoat
from a hotel there. His attorney, Fraser,
is also attorney for Judd Crouch and Dan
liolcomb, who are now on trial for the
murders committed in the Crouch home
stead last November. After Captain
Crouch had given his testimony about his
transactions with his father relative to
the disappearance of some valuable
papers which the murderers probably
carried away, Scott sent for Mr. Fraser and
told him that Captain Crouch bad made
a mistake in his testimony. The gentle
man stated that a certain agreement con
tained the figures $19,900. Scott said
they ought to be $19,700, and to show
that he knew what he was talking about
he cited at length some of the articles of
the agreement, and also portions of the
other missing papers. He claimed to
have seen them all, and even knew where
they were hidden, and the otficers be
lieved him, as they did not under
stand how he could know their
contents so well unless he
had read them very carefully,
Scott was exceedingly wise about the mat
ter, and would not tell the Jackson offi
cials anything, but told them to send for
Detective Simmons, of this city, and he
would impart a story wtiich would entire
ly clear up the mystery. Detective Mur
ray, of Jackson, cume here and asked
Lieutenant Kipley for permission to take
Detective Simmons to Jackson with him.
The permission was accorded, but when
the detective reached Jackson all he could
get from Scott was a rambling story
about his detective skill in ferreting out
the case. Then Lieutenant Kipley went
to Interview the thief, and he was
authorized to offer Scott 810.000
and Immediate release from iail if he
would tell anything which would be valu
able in evidence in the trial. The offer
failed, and the ollker has come to the
conclusion that Scott's only desire is to
escape from jail. Scott was released
from the Bridewell here last fall, after
serving a term of six months for va
grancy, lie is a notorious hotel thief,
and a dangerous man generally. He first
appeared In Jackson, Mich., about a year
ago, where he tried to get Mr. Fraser, his
attorney, to negotiate some bonds which
he had stolen in Detroit. The attorney
refused to have anything to do with the
bouds, and Scott disappeared from Jack
son altogether until his arrest about
seven weeks ago.

Washington, D. C, April 8. It is not
nnlikclythat the Investigation of the treat
ment of the Arctic cruiser Jennette's crew
by its officers, especially by Captain De
Long and Engineer Melville may develop
something interesting. Seaman Hinder
man says the crew was treated shame
fully, but not not so badly by the officers
as by Secretary Chandler, who allowed
the men who did the work only
25 a month during actual service, and
not a dollar for clothing lost, and re

A COSTLY BOOM.
It is said here that Justice Field, or his
representatives, had paid $300 for the

was obtained by similar means. Tom

1'OLITU AL .NEWS.
Cincinnati, O., April 8. Returns from
all the preciucts with the exception ol
three indicate that the Democratic ticket
Is elected with a small majority, save the
candidate for Clerk of the Police Court.
The Republican candidate for that office
will probably pull through. The vote Is
very close, and rumors of frauds at two
or three precincts may change the com
plexion of the ticket. Reports from all
parts of the State show Republican gains
on a light vote.
At Columbus the Republicans gain 550
over lat fall.
At Cleveland there It a Republican gain
of 5,0o0, wjth the Council evenly divided.
The liquor men were digruntled and
would not vote.
Fostoria elected the entire Democratic
Dayton went Democratic.
In Indiana there were Republican gains
throughout the State, except at Indian
apolis. A Republican Gain.
Clkvf.land, O., April 8. The Republi
can city ticket is elected by an average
majority of 3,100. The Republicans elect
twenty-one Councilmen and twelve mem
bers of the Board of Education. The
Democrats elect eleven Councilmen aud
seven members of the Board. The City
Council is a tie, fourteen Democrats aud
four Republicans holding over. At least
two Democratic candidates for the Coun
cil will contest. J. F. Urban, Republican
candidate for l'ollce Commissioner, car
ried seventeen of the twenty-five wards
and has a majority of 3,450. John II.
Farley, the Democratic Mayor, holding
over, was elected last Spring by 3,000 ma
jority. The city has been redistricted
within the year, making twenty-five
wards out of eighteen. The Workingiiien's

city yesterday to appoint delegates to the
State and Congressional conventions, in
structed the delegates to vote for Logan
for President, Oglesby for Governor,
Hunt for Attorney-General and Cannon
for Congress. The latter instruction more
than Insures the re-nomination of Joseph

Reports From the Small Towns.
Cincinnati, O., April 8. Reports from
small towns throughout Ohio say the
election yesterday turned mostly on local
issues. The gains and losses were about
equal between the Democrats and Repub
licans. Turner Turns TJp.
Sedaija, Mo., April 8. A startling dis
covery was made by the warring patriots
about noon. J. Milton Turner, the self
constituted receptacle of all sop thrown
to the colored race by the Republican par
ty, recently issued a call for a meeting of
the Executive Committee of the
Colored Men's party of Missouri,
which committee was appointed a long
time ago by himself, Prof. Murray aud
J. W. Wilson in convention assembled.
This meeting Is to be held to-morrow in
the building next to the convention hall,
and it is the purpose of Its projectors to
make a fierce demand that the rights of the
colored men be recognized by the appoint
ment of Mr.Turneras a delegate at large to
the Chicago Convention. The local colored
men, as well as the visiting colored dele
gates, are not enthused with the pro
ject, and consequently they will hold a
meeting this afternoon to declare that
Mr. Turner's welfare is not the chief
solicitude of the colored race, and, as
Dr. Waklen (colored) puts it: "There
is enough fuss and muss in the party al
ready without Mr. Turner organizing a
black wing to flap around aud make
As Turner Is the inveterate enemy of
Mr. Filley, this action of the colored dele
gates seems to indicate that tho boss has
renewed his grip upon them. Turner is
here and is actively drumming up mem
bers for his conventiou and Iltting them
out with credentials.
