their efforts to be intentionally friendly.

that neither Castle nor Rice wish to tie
themselves to Gibbs. who is believed to be
the rear horse in the race, and both George
P. Johnson, of St. James, and A. L.
Himle, of Lac gui Parle, are working to
get the nomination for clerk of the supreme
court, unfettered by other com
binations than may result from
individual pledges. The most of the Gibbs
slate is made up of Minneapolis candidates.
This is the understanding, however; Gibbs
is to get 23 votes from Minneapolis provid
ing he can show the most strength in the
convention, and in return Gibbs' friends
are to support the Heunepinites.
Senator llice does not openly tie himself
to McGill either, but it is as well under
stood that Rice is eager tor McGill as that
Castle's great wish isGilraan's success. What
may be said of Senator Rice may also be
remarked of the other candidates, except
Sam Nbhols, and Gilman's slate is only
certain so far as it relates to Capt. Castle
and Frank Kelloirg. The above three
slates simply point to the way each guber
natorial candidate is inclined. McGill's
slate is the strongest and most popular.
Possibly some sacrifices . may be required
before the convention adjourns.

"AIN'T SAYING A WORD."
H. G. Stordock Says He is Silent
H. G. Stordock, the Kothsay citizen who
expects to ride into the nomination for sec
retary of state on the crest of the Giluian
wave, was conspicuous in the rotunda of the
Clarendon yesterday. He wore an expres
sion on his face that indicated
anything but a confident spirit.
When asked if he believed he would get the
nomination, he replied that he was as sure
of it as a man could be sure of anything in
politics. If MeGill is nominated for the
executive chair, Stordock's hopes will be
ruthlessly dashed to the ground.
While in conversation with a reporter
yesterday, he was asked who he was
in favor of for governor, and he evaded a
direct answer by replying that he was like
Mark Twain, who was once asked by a
lady at a dinner which of heaven or hell he
preferred. The great humorist gave
her the answer that he was silent from
1 necessity, as he had friends in both places.
But it is not hard to infer who is Stordock's
favorite, as his hope for nomination as
chief quill pusher of the state lies in the
nomination of Gilniau, the heavy-browed
granger from St. Cloud, who was on the
lield yesterday with his batteries well
trained on the enemy.
A leading Republican, who objected to
the publication of his name, said that he
wouldn't be surprised .to see a deadlock
sprout and grow to extraordinary propor
tions in the convention. He thought the
three gubernatorial candidates, Gilmau,
McGill and Gibbs, would go into the meet
ing with hardly more than a difference of
thirty votes between them, aud as each
man was determined to get to the front,
it would be a long time before the trium
virate would be broken. In regard to
Albert Scheffer's chances for the nomina
tion he said that it would be only a con
tingency that would bring him before the
convention, but he believed if his name
was presented he would be willingly taken
A3 A COMPROMISE.
And it is given out on what is considered
indisputable authority that the Teutonic
leader is not averse to a deadlock iv the
convention, "as such an exigency would al
most surely force him into the field, and he
is not averse to i getting there, either by
hook or crook.
Clerk Angele, of the executive depart
ment at the capitol, has kept an eye on the
counties that have elected delegates to the
convention and their color, and on consult
ing a table yesterday that he had prepared,
it was found that Mr. McGill would go into
the convention with 131 votes sure, Gibbs
99 and Gilman 86. This left 43 votes that
were considered doubtful but would proba
bly be about equally divided between the
three men. Of course it was the general
impression of the state house employes
that McGiil would get the nomination but
they looked for at least five ballots before
he would succeed in capturing it.
A BEVISED TABLE.
Noticeable Changes in tbe Prospects
or the Onbernatorial Candidates.
Since the first table of votes was com
piled, which gave results altogether favora
ble to McGill, it is found that the apparent
showing for McGill is lanrely in excess of
his real strength. Doubtful counties were
included which might be favorable to
his candidacy, but which are either in
structed for other candidates on the ticket
at any cost, or were instructed for some
other gubernatorial aspirant who afterward
withdrew from the field. Among the list
of doubtlul counties are Kandiyohi, Olm
sted. Rice. Todd. Wabashaand Watonwau.
Kandiyohi is instructed for Senator Rice
for lieutenant governor. Olmsted
and Wabasha for Frank Kellogg,
and Rice for W. S. Pattee for
attorney-general, Todd for J.D. Jones, and
Watonwan for George P. Johnson for clerk
of the suDreine court.This takes thirty votes
away from McGill. which have been claimed
by his friends. Again, Stevens and Tray-
ST. PAUL; TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 21. 18S&
Erse were instructed for Gen. Barrett, and
Houston for W. W. Bradeu, both of whom
quickly withdrew from the gubernatorial
tight. Neither of these delegations
has yet been pledged, nor have
they betrayed their preference,
although Gibbs claims the five votes from
Houston county headed by Senator O'Brien.
Maj. Camp leads six Heunepin votes which
cannot be counted upon for anything.
The table which is given to-day is more
reliable in that the claims of the friends of
each of the three candidates are taken into
consideration. Gibbs says the entire Otter
Tail delegation has been pledged to him,
j and all of the Polk delegation. Gilman. on
! the other hand, says rive votes from Otter
Tail, and three from Polk belong to him. If
the Otter Tail and Polk delegations are solid
for Gibbs, it would give him 112 votes and
Gilman 94. But Gibbs swears he has 135
or 140 votes. Capt. Snider and Col. Hicks,
of Hennepiu. concede 23 votes to Gibbs
which can only be counted upon if Gibbs
shows most strength. Trading these 28
votes would leave Gibbs with only 81, and
conceding him 14 out of the 23, which
Col. Hicks says are for Gibbs in
any event, he would have a showing
of 95. This, with the 5 from
Houston, would give him 100 reliable votes.
Gilman makes no definite claim, but de
clares that a margin of thirty votes will
cover the difference between them. Allow
ing that McGill is sure of Kaudiyohi, Olm
sted. Rice, Todd, Wabasha and Watouwan,
it would give him a reliable count of 137.
If Gilmau can claim the balance over this
and Gibbs' 100. he controls 122 votes. The
chances are therefore very favorable to a

The Knights of Labor Not Opposed
to mayor A men.
In regard to the report through an even
ing paper that the Knights of Labor, at the
district meeting in Stillwater on Sunday,
j had decided not to support Dr. Ames for
governor, District Master Workman Mc-
Gaughey was seen last evening by a Globe
reporter and asked about the correctness of
the evening paper's assertion. Mr. Mc-
"You can quote me as sayingr that the Item
is absolutely false. The subject of Dr. Ames'
candidacy was not broached or discussed at
the meetinjr on Sunday, and could not be
under the rules of our organization. There
is no truth in it whatever."
At the meeting m Stillwater on Sunday
Mr. McGaugbey desired to resign his office
in favor of T. W. Brosnan. of Minneapolis,
but the substitute was not accepted, and
those who desired the resignation preferred
to have McGaughey continue until the end

ier column of the British army of occupa
tion in Buruiah has been cut off at Taingd
dah, from communication with the main
army by Dacolts under the leadership of
Boshemey and other noted insurgents.
Three hundred troops have been dispatched
to relieve them.
The government telegraphed to the rail
way authorities to stop the insurgents, who
were fleeing in the direction of Alcala De
Henares. The order was not complied with,
however, as the railway officers feared an
attack by the rebels. Upon their arrival
at Alcala De Henares, the insurgents failed
to arouse the sympathy of the people and
troops, and they subsequently attempted to
return to Madrid, but in this effort they
were foiled, the line having been cut by
the loyal troops. A skirmish took place at
Vikalcaro, about four miles from Madrid.
The royalists wounded a number of the
rebels and took several prisoners.
They Create a Hubbub at Madrid,
but are Finally Dispersed.
Madrid, Sept. 20. — A revolution was at
tempted last evening by a number of the
Spanish troops quartered in this city. The
uprising was ill-plauned and ill-managed,
and practically amounted to little more
than a mutiny. The trouble was inaugu
rated by a regiment of infantry quartered
in the Gil Bias barrack. The soldiers re
volted, broke down the partition wall that
separated t aein from the quarters occupied
by the cavalry and intermingled with the
men of the two cavalry regiments, a num
ber of whom joined in the revolution. The
officers in all three of the regiments did all
in their power to dissuade the men from riot
ins, but3oo soldiers, after beating a number
of officers and wounding three, deserted
the barracks and marched in two bodies
through the town. , One body went to
Prado, the principal park and promenade
of Madrid. Two thousand troops were
quartered at the Prado at the time and the
revolutionists expected to be joined by
them. The " other body went hurrahing
through the center of Madrid, calling on
the people to join in 1 the revolution, crying
"LIVE THE REPUBLIC!"
and making all kinds of threats against the
monarchy. At this time the theaters and
other places of amusement are crowded.
The populace were taken by surprise.
In most of the public places the
people flocked out iv a pauic. In
aii. the entertainments were ab
ruptly terminated. The streets were soon
tilled with people, nearly all ot whom were
terror-stricken, because of exaggerated ideas
of what was transpiring. The insurgents
attempted among their first exploits to
secure possession of the arsf uals, decks
and barracks, wliich they attacked with
open lire, but all these places were well and
successfully defended, and the rebels were
repulsed. Finally, their reverses drawing
them together, the insurgents attacked and
got possession of the Southern railway. By
this "time the authorities had taken in the
situation, and had fully prepared to master
it. The loyal troops were marched to the
railway, and after a short lignt, they com

one of the officers" leading the insurgents
was shot and killed. The rebels shot Gen.
Velarde tor refusing to join them. They
also mortally wounded Count Mirasol and
killed a colonel of artillery. Martial law
was proclaimed throughout the city as soon
as the condition of affairs was clearly per
ceived by the government. The euieute
was a complete surprise to Madrid. Quiet
was soon restored after the revolutionists
were driven from the Southern railway. A
number of the insurgents were taken pris
oners. This morning there is no appear
ance of a revolution or even a disorder.
When the insurgents fled from town forty
of them compelled the station master to
place at their disposal a special train, with
which they made their flight to Alacla De
Hunares. Government troops were soon
in pursuit in another special train.

gents also shouted "Lous live the repub
lic, the army and Spain." A large number
of civilians joined their ranks. When the
authorities summoned the military to put
down the insurrection the rebels made a
fight for awhile against the local troops and
it was in the first brush between the oppos
ing forces that Gen. Velarde and the artil
lery colonel were killed. When the revo
lutionists realized that the other troops
were making no response to their appeal
they abandoned the fight in town and
scampered for the country, most of them
in the direction of Alcala : de Henares, a
walled city in New Castile and but seven
teen miles from Madrid. Many of the
rebels gave up the light before the general
retreat of their comrades ' and made their
escape in the darkness. ■ The authorities
are making a great many arrests for com
plicity in the revolution, and a large pro
portion of the prisoners are officers. It is
learned to-day that the revolution was
LED BY BRIG. GEN. VILLACAMPA.
He escaped on the special train, which
left the city on the Southern railway.
Loyal troops are scouring the suburbs of
Madrid in search of fugitive rebels. Tele
grams from all the provinces show that
public order remains undisturbed. The
ministers, who happened to be all absent '
from the city yesterday, have been sum- ,
moned to return immediately. It has been
learned that the revolutionists who started
for Alcala de Henares, becoming convinced
that the loyalists would stop and probably
capture them, stopped the special train en
route, sent it back to Madrid and fled across
the country. The streets of the city are
alive with crowds of people eagerly dis
cussing the occurrences last night.
Gladstone Makes Ilia Appearance-
Debate on Pamelas Land Mill.
London, Sept. 20. Gladstone attended
the evening's session of the house of com
mons. A crowd assembled outside to see
him and give him an ovation when he
came. He was received with a similar
demonstration by the members of the house
when he appeared on the floor. Gladstone
looks as if he was enjoying robust health.
Lord Randolph Churchill announced that
the government would at the next session
introduce a bill to facilitate' the transfer of
land, reducing the legal costs. This an
nouncement was received with cheers. Sir
Michael Hicks-Beach, chief secretary for
Ireland, replying to an interrogatory by
Parnell, said that since the 13th of June
1.000 families, comprising 5,311 persons,
had been evicted in Ireland. Of these 650 fam
ilies, including 3,620 persons, been read
mitted to the former premises as caretakers.
Mr. Parnell, in moving the second reading
of his land bill, made a spreoh in which
he said that the depression : which began in
1885 remained unabated, and some relief
was necessary. After explaining i and de
fending the provisions ot his ' bill, Mr. Par-
Nell took up the subject of evictions. "The ,
present viceroy," he sivul, "is a noble lord
of whom little is.known except what is bad.
[Cheers.] The present chief secretary, Sir
Michael Hicks-Beach, says he is going to
leave the tenants to their fate, as in no case
must the loss be borne by the landlords."
The speaker disputed the accuracy of Sir
Michael Hicks-Beach's eviction figures. He
said the quarter endine the present month
would show a higher average of evictions
than any quarter since 1851. If the gov
ernment, armed with this bill, should stay
the evictions in Kerry, it would do more to
restore peace than all the Bullera put
together. [Cheers.] He claimed that the
bill was essentially moderate and calculated
to pull matters smoothly through the win
ter." Parnell concluded by earnestly en
treating the house to allow a second read
ing of the bill, which, he said, would bene
fit the landlords themselves.
At the conclusion of Mr. ParneU's speech
Mr. John George Gibson, meniber for Liv
erpool, arose and on behalf of the govern
ment, said that after the declarations al
ready made, it would be impossible to him
dertake auy new constructive legislation
this sesson. He declared that Mr. Parnell's
measure was one which no government
could accept, and contended that the state
of farming in Ireland did not show any ne
cessity for the bill.
who was loudly cheered, said he was sorry
to find in the course of the debate
no signs of an approximation of an
agreement between the two sides of the
house. The tone of the speeches for the
government side was that of uncompromis
ing opposition to any measure for the relief
of the Irish tenants. Whether that atti
tude was justified ought to decide their
vote on the second reading of the
bill. How was it, that of the numerous
members representing farming constit
uencies in Ireland, not one was inclined
to move the rejection of the bill. He sup
posed that none, however fervent their
allegiance to the government, could be in
duced to do so. [Cheers.] To the ques
tion "When was ths inability of Irish tea
ants to pay rent first discovered?" he replied
"When the government first advised the
queen to issue a commission to inquire
whether the fall in the prices of produce
affected the rent-paying capacity of the
tenants." Mr. Gladstone's voice was
husky, but he spoke with vigor and made a
Rioting- at Belfast.
Belfast, Sept. 20.— A1l was quiet in
the city this morning. At noon, however,
a large body of the Queens Island ship
yard workmen, all orangeiiien, marched
ostentatiously through the streets on their
way to and from dinner as if to provoke a
fight. At Carrick Hill they were attacked
with volleys of stone and a desperate tight
ensued, which is still in progress. Many
men of both sides have been wounded.
Desultory combats between the mobs and
police occurred in various parts
of Belfast this evening, but so
far as known no one was fatally
injured. There was much stone-throwing
and the police used their batons freely. One
detachment of police, being attacked by
overwhelming numbers, were obliged to
flee. They were pursued by a howling
mob armed with stones and other misiles.
Finally a strong body of soldiers succeeded
in rescuing the policemen. Thebarackson
Divis street were again stoned to-night. A
number of iiouses were wrecked by the
rioters. The total number of arrests made
to-day is twelve.
Dublin, Sept. 20. — Several moonlight
raids were made last night upon houses in
the vicinity of Listowel, county Kerry. All
the raids were made in search of arms. The
moonlighters in each case are described
as well dressed, gentlemanly looking, po
lite men, the majority of whom carried
watches and were equipped with the new
est kind of firearms. Twenty armed men
went out from Kauturk, county Cork and
near Mallow in broad daylight to-day and
made an open raid in search of arms in
farm houses not more than half a mile
from town. The raiders were successful in
securing a quantity of firearms. When the
raiding was done the police went out hunt
ing the raiders and arrested two.
•THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR.
A Goodly Assemblage at the Trien
nial Conclave— The Grand Mauler
St. Louis, Sept. 10. — StLonis is crowded
with Knights Templar. Among the com
manderies present are the following from
the Northwest: Cyrene, Beloit, Wis., Da
rius, No. 7, Minneapolis; Cyrene No. 2,
Sioux Falls. Dak.; Wisconsin No. 1, Mil
waukee, and the St. Paul knights. Nearly
all of the prominent officers of the order
are present. One of the main questions to
be discussed is that of amending the organic
law with regard to the powers and privi
leges of the grand encampment. Grand
Master Withers, who arrived yesterday
with the California delegation, is quite ill.
When he left China six weeks ago he was
in bad health, and nothing could be done on
ship board to relieve him. He has been
almost constantly troubled for six weeks,
and is very much exhausted. He was re
fused to all visitors to-day. His meals are
served to him in bed, and he did not rise
until a late hour, husbanding his strength
for to-morrow's parade, in which he is very
anxious to take part. Deputy Grand Mas
ter Koome, of New York, arrived this
morning, accompanied by Grand Treasurer
Simons. The latter is also unwell, but will
no doubt be able to attend to business.
The streets were brilliantly illuminated
to-night for the lirst time, the work of
preparation having been brought to practi
cal completion before dark. Eight miles
of streets were brilliantly lighted with tens
and hundreds of thousands of gas jets, in
closed in many colored .globes, while from
the fronts of prominent public and private
buildings blazed forth in electric liehts and
gas symbolic designs appropriate to the oc
casion. There were no set parades, but
small bodies of Knights accompanied by
bands of music were moving in all direc
tions and the streets were thronged with
spectators. The only set feature of to
night's programme was the reception by
four local conimanderies — St. Aldemar,
Ascalou, Ivanhoe and St. Louis No. 1.
THE ODD FELLOWS.
There are i\ow 30.000 of Them in

Boston, Sept. 20.— There are 30,000
Odd Fellows in the city. The annual ses
ion of the Sovereign grand lodge was
held to-day. The reports showed that to

members of the order. In the United
States during the year nearly $1,000,000
was expended for benevolent purposes.
The available assets of the grand lodge are
878,096. The grand banquet given in Odd
Fellows' hall this evening by the Sovereigu
Grand lodge was a very enjoyable affair.
Plates were laid for nearly 500 person?.
The gathering comprised the supren c
officers and other high dignitaries of the
order together with many ladies.
The Piesran* and Gros Ventres Have

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Sept. 20.— A dis
patch from Wood Mountains says a report
has been received there that a pitched battle
was fought early last week between a
party of Gros Ventres and Piegan Indians
near the boundary line, in which six
Piegans were killed. The Piegans had
been stealing horses for some time and bad
blood had been brewing. The report is not

Oshkosh, Wis., Sept 20. — The morning
game would have beeu won by Oshkosh
had Harper been well supported, but un
lucky bunching of errors in the first and
eighth innings gave Minneapolis her runs,
although Shat'er's hit in the eighth brought
Murphy in with the winning run after the
latter had reached third ou errors. Neither
pitcher was hit hard, although Ryan's good
support saved several hits. Harper pitched
a good game, and it was a shame that he
was not backed up. O'Rouke's catches
in center were excellent, and Hoy's work

Milwaukee, Wis., Sept. 20. — Last
Saturday's drawn game between Milwaukee
and Dulutb, which was to have been played
off to-day, was awarded to the Duluths by
the umpire, 9to 0. The Duluths drove to
the grounds but were refused admittance
on the protest that the grounds were in
unfit condition for playing. Manager Lucas
sent for Secretary Quin and he instructed
the umpire to give the game to Dulutb. if
admittance was still refused at the time the
game should be called. The day was a
perfect one for ball playing, and the
grounds in fine condition. The action of
Ted Sullivan is attributed to a dispute he
had on his recent trip to Dulutu. While
there the Duluths refused to play off a
postponed game, though the conditions for
playing were lavorable. Though Ted got
his revenge on the Duluths. he has incurred
the ill-will of Milwaukee base ball patrons,
a number of whom had assembled at the
park, and he is likely to play to empty
benches during the remainder of the season.
Secretary Quin says that he will propose
the expulsion of the Milwaukees from the
Northwestern league at the next meeting
of the league.

took place on the Thames, between George
Bubear and Peter Kemp, from Putney to
Mort Lake. The bettinsr was 21 to 20 in f avoi

himself and his opponent. Bubear, however,
pulled thirty-four strokes, and gradually drew
up on even terms. Near Hammersmith
bridge Kemp again went to the front, but
Bubear made a grand spurt and Kemp wore
himself out in his endeavors to hold his lead.
Bubear soon passed him and crossed the line
