' FILLEY WITH A WHOOP.
"When the chairman of the conven
tion announced that the next order of
(justness was the nomination of a chair
man for the state central committee a
ripple of suppressed excitement and ex
pectation ran through the body. Mr.
Af. H. Leper, in a spirited speech, nom
inated Chauncey Ives Filley. A storm
-of applause greeted the mention of his
.name. No other name was put in nom
ination, and the suggestion went
through with enthus-asra.
Xv-xt came the nomination and elec
tion of four coinmittcemen-at-large for
the state central committee. An up
roar followed which it was impossible
tor Chairman Waters to control for
some time, though he shouted himself
.hoarse and nearly pounded his desk
;into kindling wood in his efforts to
preserve order. Finally he entertained
. motion to adjourn, which was
wotcd. down with an emphatic
no, which nearly raised the roof.
Jiomething like order having been
obtained, the nominations began, but
confusion again broke out, and Secre
tary Ilobbs was competed to begin call

sulted in the following selections:
Iturr Duncan, of Poplar Bluff; Charles
(allicnmp, of Franklin county; Charles
-Schattner, of Kansas City, and W. S.
fx-per, of Caldwell county.
Numerous motions to adjourn were
made and lost, and great confusion
ensued. The members being wearied
with their labors and tired of waiting
for the committee on resolutions to re
port, a member made a motion to adopt
the Minneapolis platform and adjourn
This motion was defeated, and the
convention took a recess for an hour
When the convention reconvened the
committee on resolutions presented its
report, "which was adopted unan
imously. FLLLKY CALLED FOR.

The democratic party has been In complete
control of this government for a period of the
past eighteen months, and during that time a
condition of affairs confronts the country that
beggars description and causes the people to
look to the future of our nation with distrust
and undisguised alarm. Therefore, the repub
licans of the state of Missouri present the fol
lowing declaration of principles:
We again declare for a system of protective
duties, adjusted so that every American re
source can be developed by American labor, re
ceiving American wages; and we insist upon a
tariff that will accomplish these ends. We
have but to mention the disastrous results that
have followed the mere menace of free trade as
conclusive evidence of the wisdom of the re
publican policy in the past upon this subject.
We favor the enactment of laws that will pro

mand the strict enforcement of the immigra
We reaffirm the unswerving devotion of Mis
souri republicans to the supreme sovereign
right of every qualified voter, rich or poor, na
tive or foreign born, black or white, to cast the
free ballot in public election, and to have that
ballot counted as cast, and we condemn all im
pediments under cover of law preventing qual
ified voters from depositing their ballots and
having them counted.
We extend to the people of Hawaii, in their
struggle to establish and maintain liberal and
free institutions for the government, our
hearty sympathy, and we assure them that
the conduct of the present administration in
its endeavors to force upon them by hostile
menace a corrupt and semi-barbarous mon
archy, does not meet with the approval of the

sued by the government shall be as good as
any other dollar.
We favor the largest possible coinage of sil

maintenance of equal purchasing and debt
paying power of all dollars In circulation.
Wc do not want monometallism of either gold
or silver, and we pledge ourselves to continue
to work for bimetallism, to be brought about
by all means within the power of the govern
ment. The republican party, ever mindful of the
patriotic services and sacrifices of the veteran
soldiers of the republic, reaffirms its position
in favor of liberality to the nation's defenders.
V'e favor the granting of pensions to all honor

Richard Kerens, of St. Louis, pressed
the committee on resolutions to report

A Bengalese magistrate, having
been informed of the whereabouts of a
mad dog, armed himself and went to
the place where the rabid animal -lay
by a house door. He learned upon in
quiry that two women were in the
house and sent word to them that he
was about to shoot the dog and there
fore they should not be alarmed by the
report, and that as he might not inflict
a fatal wound at the first fire, and, in
fact, might miss, they should remain
within until notified. Such a supreme
courtesy is in marked contrast with
that of western civilization.
The old Avery house in Connecti
cut, that was destroyed recently by a
spark from a passing locomotive, was
one of the finest specimens of old co
lonial architecture in the country.
Since the house was built, in 16."fi, it
has always been in possession of an
Avery, and this is the ninth generation
in which it has descended from father
to son. The great room, which the
original Avery used for public reli
gious service on Sunday, had oeen used
for this purpose for over two hundred
years. The house was a huge rambling
structure, and had twenty-four comers.

loss to the commercial world amounts
to a larze sum.
THE WAR IN THE EAST.
Latest w tif Steamer from China, Ja

Victoria. TJ. CL, Any. 13. When the
steamship Empress of Japan, which
has just arrived here, left Yokohama,
news of war and rumors of blockade
filled the air. All along the Chinese
coasts beacons and buoys were being
removed and numerous merchantmen,
the Empress of China included, had in
consequence come to grief. Railway
and telegraph lines were being hastily
constructed in both China and Japan
to facilitate speedy transportation of
troops. Torpedoes had been laid at
the entrance of all the rivers and
further supplies of arms and ammuni
tion were being ordered. Exception
ally stringent press regulations had
been adopted to prevent any but offi
cially corrected news being published.
Hence it is that all advices by the Em
press of Japan a:-e strongly Japanese
The chief items of interest in con
nection with the movement of the
navy chronicle the capture of the Chi
nese dispatch Itcat Hang-Yang, Li
Hung Chang's favorite; the shelling of
the Chinese cruiser Tsi-Yuen, with a
loss of sixteen lives, and the sinking of
a Japanese cruiser of the first class by
the Tsi-Yuen, sister ship of the Chen
Yuen, commanded by Admiral Lui
Paitseng. The Japanese newspapers
leave the name of the lost cruiser in
blank, and only refer to her destruc
tion in the most casual way in obscure
corners of their issues.
Strong efforts are being made by the
Japanese to throw all the blame for the
Kow Shung affair upon piratical Chi
nese troops on board, who forced Capt.
(.alworthy to cast himself into the sea
to escape being murdered at their
hands, and assert that England has
the strongest possible claim for dam
ages against China in connection with
the Kow Shungs's loss.
The Corean king on the 27th of July
released from jail five important pris
ners of state, tlt3 sister-in-law and
niece of ISoku Ya: Ko. the mother of
Jo Sai Hitou, and the mother and
daughter of Jo Ko Ilan. who were
imprisoned in connection with the re
bellion of ISSi.
It is generally lielievcd that I.oku
Yai Ko will be recalled by the kin
and appointed to some itnportant posi
tion. It is reported that the Corean
government has officially intimated to
Japan that they will promptly sever
all connection with China. Prepara
tions are rapidly advancing for the
Immharding of the Woo Sung forts,
and among the rumors prevailing in
Shanghai, when the last mail left, was
one to the effect that the defenses of
the approach to Shan Kai Kaung,
where the great wall of China meets
the sea, had been greatly strengthened.
Two of the Armstrong alphabetical
boats and two other gunboats were ly
ing in the vicinity, in obedience to in
structions from Viceroy Li Hung
Chang, while, 2,500 men are being
added to the land garrisons. This
is strong enough to prevent Shan Kai
Kaung leing crushed by any small
Japanese naval force that may escape
the vigilance of the Chinese cruiser
in the gulf of Pechili.
The sale of coal at Kelur.g, For
mosa, has been forbidden to any out
sider, the Chinese government requir
ing the whole supply. The Sai Hing
colliery is turning out 2,000 tons of
coal per day, and the coal dust at the
mines is now being made into bricks.
The Pei Yang fleet has been divided
into two squadrons, one under Admiral
Ting-In-Yuen, cruising in the gulf of
Pechili, and another under Admiral
Li Yai Paitseng. in Chen Yuen, which
conveyed the transports which left
about the 25th of 'ast month for Corea,
The third division is believed to be at
Talienwen, ready to escort to Corea
the second army corps, under Gen.
Sung, of 20,000 men. Most of the
troops appear to have lieen landed at
the Yalu river. The Foo Chow fleet,
while ostensibly making a demonstra
tion against Loo C'hoos, is to cruise be
tween Formosa and the mainland.

of the Kow Shung showed (great cool
ness and judgment under the trying

DUN'S COM! MERCIAN REVIEW.
The New Tariff Hill, When Signed by tbe
President, Will Provide a Definite Mailt
for Business Meanwhile the Serious In
jury to Corn and Some Other Conditions
Kxerrise a Restraining Influence A Great
Boom Not Probable.
Xew York. Aug. 18. R. G. Dun &
Co. "s weekly review of trade, issued to
The new tariff bill, if signed by the
president as expected, provides a
definite basis for business No sup
plemental legislation is thought possi
ble until next year at least. Large
improvement has been expected from
any settlement, the more because
of a vast amount of business deferred
from week to week in the hope of more
definite conditions. The rush of such
business, or even a part of it, might
easily double transactions for a time.
It is not to be overltxiked that the ef
fect of new duties upon many branches
of industry and trade is problematical,
and may be determined only after some
months of experience; and meanwhile
the serious injury to corn and some
other conditions exercise a restraining
influence. While it is not wise to look
for a great 'boom," there is warrant
for a reasonable and prudent hopeful
ness. It is too early to look for effects of
the new situation in the great indus
tries, but the gradual recovery which
has appeared for some time is seen in
a better demand for products. Specu
lation in wool has been stopped, arid
the sales, which have b?en i.0'2!,7"0
pounds for the week, and 14,"3,150 for
two weeks of August, against 3,397.403
last year, and ir,3&",30!) in 1332, natur
ally diminished on Wednesday and
Thursday, as it is expected that the
recent advance may be lost, though
no change 3-et appears. As woolen
manufactures has the old du
ties, with free wool until
January 1, orders are expected to be
governed by the consuming power of
the people, with the accumulated busi
ness so long deferred, and while recent
trade has been enough to crowd the
mills at work on some specialties, it has
l)een far short of the capacity of all
the works in the country. Makers
will be pressed within the next week
to put prices on spring goods, of which
& few lines are opening. Cotton man
ufacturers have been carrying ex
traordinary stocks of goods for the
country, and the strike threatened at
Xew Bedford will not alarm them, but
the reduction of wages seems likely
to be accepted at Fall River. A smart
increase in transactions is reported,
buyers and sellers having at last a
common basis for judgment.
Resumption by iron and steel works
which was stopped by the strikes,
continues to depress prices of some
finished products, but with more fur
naces operating, prices of pig iron are
fiot lower. Comparisons given to-day
show a fall in prices ranging from 20 to
44 per cent, in iron and its products
fiince Octolicr, lS'JO. which sufficiently
accounts for the idleness of more than
a third of the works. The demand for
structural forms seems smaller, does
not increase fcr railroad use, though
traffic improves, but for some other
products is better.
The boot and shoe industry leads all
others in recovery from depression,
and shipments from Boston for two
weeks are 47 per cent, larger than last
yijar. Demands for speedy delivery
end numerous sales from stock indi
cate that jobbers are carrying short
Speculation in corn has been very
active, the price falling 4 cents, rising
3? and falling 2, with varying reports
of injury, whieh iu some of the great
corn states is undoubtedly severe.
While western receipts in two weeks
have lieen only 2.420.573 bushels,
against 4.373,101 last year, the high
price explains imports of only 541,635
bushels, against 3,031.003 in the same
weeks last year. Pork has advanced
50 cents and lard 3.1 cents per 100
pounds, with justification in the

1 cent lower, western receipts be

eause of the heavy sugar movement.
With lower duties the arrival of mer

The Present Week Expected to Witness tha
Close or the First session of the FIT ty
Thlrd Congress Nothing Kow to Do
Bnt Clean Up the F ag fcnd.
Washington, Aug. 20. There is good
reason to believe that the week that
opens to-day will see the close of the
first session of the fifty-third con
gress. The work of the senate is fin
ished; the last of the appropriation bills
was completed and the conference re
port adopted Friday, and there is noth
ing now for the senate to do but to
clean up the fag ends of a busy and
very entertaining session.
About the only thing that keeps sen
ators here is the tariff bill; and the
general impression now is that the
president will permit it to become law
just as soon as the treasury officials
are ready to carry it into effect. That
he does not intend to veto the bill is
clear, for the law points are not being
prepared at the government printing
After this it is likely that the sen
ate may meet for a short time daily
and then adjourn pending the recep
tion of the tariff bill. Until it is
known just when to expect this meas
ure from the president it is not likely
that a joint resolution fixing a day for
adjournment will be introduced.
In the meantime there will be an ef
fort (and perhaps a successful one) to
pass the house bill to repeal all laws
authorizing a rebate of the internal
revenue tax on alcohol used in the
arts. Mr. Sherman in his "plain talk"
on Saturday showed the necessity for
the passage of that measure; and Mr.
Allison will he heard on the same point
and on the whole subject of this ses
sion's tariff legislation to-day.
There was nothing much for the
house of representatives, apparently,
but to wait for the action of the presi
dent on the tariff bill and then adjourn.
The adoption of the Murphy resolu
tion in the senate Saturday is taken
as an expression of the determination
on the part of that body to do no more
business, and the futile efforts of the
managers of the quorum to vote on the
Sugar trust and bounty resolution dem
onstrated the fact that, like the house,
the senate was practically without a
quorum. Therefore, it is assumed that
none of the bills yet in conference be
tween the two houses will be further
considered at this session, for it is not
likely that they could be passed, even
were the conferees to come to an agree

A Quartette of Makers and Shovers of the
Queer Run In.
CniCAOO, Aug. 2a City detectives
yesterday arrested four expert counter
feiters, who have been flooding the
neighborhood of Western avenue for
several weeks with spurious silver
coin, dollars, halves and quarters.
The men caught are Thaddeus
Strankewicz, Joseph Rosinenitch,
Casper Steaken and John Kilogski.
Their victims were store and
saloon keepers. One of the de-
for drinks with one of
the "queer' dollars and with the aid
of other officers ran down the rest of
the gang. Strankewicz had a little
jewelry store as a blind for his part of
the business, plating bad money to
make it passable. The police, armed
with search warrants, made a con
certed raid on the homes of the gang
and found plenty of the coin on them.'
The outfit for making the stuff was
also found secreted on their premises.

for the act was despondency. It is said

would lose his position, he became de

Just About to Start la a Race.
Cowf.b, Aug. 19. Howard Gould says
(hat the Vigilant struck the ground
close to the Needles, the chain of her
centerhoard broke and the board sank.
He blames Pilot Diaper for running the
sloop aground. Diaper says that at the
time he did not know the centerhoard
was down. Mr. Gould said he did not
think the Vigilan t could get another

would race again, however, before
