elections of state oftlcers went through
almost without dissent.
Col. R. M. Wynne, of Fort Worth,
nominated Ross, nnd Senator Roll and
Rally, of Cooko, seconded the nomi
nation. Ross was nominated by ac
climation by a rising vole. Tho gov
ernor was called for and mado an ap

A second ballot bolug ordered, tho

announced, Hoti. A. W. Terrol took
tho stand and in a brief and eloquent
speech withdrew Walker's name.
Sawnlo Robertson moved that John
L. Henry bo nominated by acclama
tion. Tho question was put and
Judgo Henry was declared tho nomi
nee. The convention then adjourned
until this morning at 0 o'clock.
An episode occurred during the
vote for associate justice in which
Russel Kingsbury of Waco played a
consplcious part, in an effort to secure
the nomination of Walker. The con
vention was in great dlhordor bofore
ballot so that ordor was about impos
sible. Tho following Is tho Dallas
News' account of tho episode In
which Klusbury seems to have come
out all right at last:
Tho chair appointed D. P. Gay of
Runnels, J. L. Joiner of Robertson,
assistant sergeants, at-artus, to aid in
suppressing dlsordor, and the ballot
commenced amid the turmoil which
attends the birth of tho judiciary.
Tho voto stood Walker 428; Gaines 074;
Henry 480; Gaines was then nomina
ted unanimously by a rising vote,
and the convention proceeded to bal-
lat again, Vice-President Graco of
Fannin In chair. At the outset a cl or
iole confusion was encountered from
some person voting for Walker when
ever a countv was called. The secre
tary would say, "pleaso repeat the
vote of tho county," and this third
party would cast Its vote for Walker,
sometimes giving that candidate a
double vote. At length presiding of
ficer Graco exclaimed wltii seeming
meaning: "They claim this man
Kingsbury from McLennan county, is
bothering this convention. Take
him out; will somo of the sorgoants-at-
arms take him out? I euro not to
whore." Acting under this authori
ty three assistant sorgeant-at-arms
p-ooeeded to bouueo Delogato Kins
bury, but he did not propose to sub
mit to any suoli treatment and a bcuf
lle ensuod In tho courso of whioli while
Sorgeant-at-arms McDonald was;hold
iug on to his collar, ho got in a lick
nt assistant Sorgeant-at-arms Rill
Smith just thon Assistant Sorgeant-at-arms
Joo Record came to the rescue
and gavo Delegate Kingsbury a push
ahead, causing tho demolition of a
chair. Just thou tho baud struck up
a ringing air, and tho circus was com
ploto with tho Judiciary in tho heart
of thomonagrlo. After a protraotod
strugglo Delogato Kingsbury, who
had struggled like a Trojan, was tak
en out. Just then a Paris man, slight
ly out of the perpendicular, strolled
in and screamed, "I want to vote for
Lubbock, and give tho Ho to tho man
who accused Jon" Davis of stealing,
and then I'll bo ready to leave tho
d d town and nover como back."
Having thus dolivered himself, ho
climbed up on tho platform and start
ed to nmko a spooch about Lubbock,
but beforo tho leading sontonco had
passod his lips, two assistant sergeant
at-arms llred him over tho fonco, the
ordor of his flight being head down
and heels up.
At that moment a voice was heard
"I rise to a question of personal

Of the Colored Christian Church,
To the Evening News.
The Colored Chrlstim State Con
vention assembled at 0:15 a. m., Aug.
15, In the the Christian church with
a very appreciative audience.
Owing to tho absence of the presi
dent Elder F. Collins of Palestlno, the
assistant secretary, M. T. Riown,
called tho convention to order, and
Elder H. S. Howell, of Dallas, was
appointed president pro tern.
Thore seemed to bo some dissatis
faction among tho delegates as to tho
propriety of holding the convention
on tho east side, and after a warm dis
cussion In lavor of tho west side a
commlttoo was appointed to see tho
proper authorities for getting a hall
on tho west side. I may say that tho
sentiments of the audience generally
woro in favor of tho west side, and It
is hoped that tho committee will bo
successful so that a largo hall may
bo opened free to all.
Aftor tho roport of various commit
tees the audience listonod to a well
prepared papor on temperance by
Elder M. T. Brown, after which
tho morning session adjourned till 1
p. m., when promptly at tho hour the
tho convention was opened by devo
tional exorcises. Tho subject of Pas
toral Theology was thon discussed at
some length. The next discussion
on tho noed of missionary work. This
discussion seemed to lay heavy on the
delegates, who Boomed to lack life
and energy in their debato until El
der Wood from Matagorda gained tho
lloor, when he hold tho audloncespoll
bound for at least thirty minutes, and
when tho speaker loft tho lloor all
wore eager with excitement. Elder
Taylor then dollvorod tho closing re

Arrested for Train Wrecking.
Two patties are in custody charged
with wrecking the Texas Central train
in which wreck the engineer, Moses,
was killed. The first is Tom Poe, a
man well known in Waco, and who
lives near the place of the wreck. His
arrest was peculiar and there is, in the
opinion of good judges, nothing in
the case. About midnight on Tuesday
night one J. K. Daniels, of Ross, went
to County Attorney Blair, charging
Poe with being the wrecker. Capt.
Blair sent him to Justice Sleeper, at
whose residence he arrived about two
o'clock on Wednesday morning. Here
he made an affidavit against Poe, and
a warrant was issued for Poe's arrest,
and Daniels was commissioned to ar
rest him. Daniels went back to Ross
and arrested Poe, and yesterday came
back to Waco with him in custody and
turned him over to the officers. Dan
iels and Poe are said to be neighbors
and to be at outs. This is, however,
mere rumor. Poe was at the jail to
day in a condition which did not ad
mit an interview, and is said to have
been half crazed b his arrest. Sub
poenas were issued for witnesses this
afternoon and the preliminary hearing,
set for two o'clock, but the witnesses
are mainly at Ross and the hearing
at that hour is hardly possible.
Poe, while somewhat dissipated and
frolicsome, is said to be a good man,
wholly incapable of such a deed as
wrecking a train and killing women
and children. He served through the
war side by side with brave men, be
ing in the troops with Gen. Ross and
Bill Harris. He is himself a brave
roan and of his courage and good
heartedness officers and others speak
Later At 4 o'clock neither wit
nesses nor Daniels were to be found,
and the case was dimissed. A good
deai of indignation was expressed that
it should ever have been begun.
On Tuesday Capt, J. M. Waller, of
the Hall cc Waller, detective agency,
arrested one Jim Jones, a colored
nun living close to the place where
the train was wrecked, and brought
him to the city on Tuesday night
keeping him closely secreted till last
nif,ht when he was turned over at a
late hour to the officers and is now in
jail. Capt. Waller kept his prisoner
in prolound secrecy until the moment
of placing him in jail. What the evi
dence against the negro is, is not
known, but from the known ability of
tne gentlemen who conduct the detec
tive agency, by which he was captured,
it is pietty certain that the arrest was
not made for nothing.
Trlctl on 11 CluirKo of Iluliliirr.
Jim Sterlin, colored who was arres
ted and jailed by Constable Lee Jen
kins.was up for hearing before Justice
Makeig, to-day. Sterling was first ar
rested on a charge of entering the
buggy house of Mrs. Sam Sanger
about the 6th, of last July and steal
ing a set of harness valued at about
$25. Sometime after the man's con
finement in jail it was discovered that
circumstance pointed to him as also
being the party who burglarized the
buggy house of Capt. T. A. Blair
and stole two sets of harness valued
at $45. He was to have a preliminary
hearing in both charges but on ac
count of the necessary absence of
Mr. John, Winfrey a witness in the
case the trial was postponed until to
