Queer Combination Which Book

CINCINNATI, 0., May 10—A special from
Springfield, 0., gives an interview with
John W. Bookwalter, the Democratic candi
date for governor of Ohio in 1887. He pre
dicts that Grover Cleveland will be nom
inated for the fourth time at the Chicago con
vention in July. He eulogizes the president
as the leader of tariff reform, and says he ls
row wanted as the leader of the war party
in this country. Mr. Bookwalter believes
that the conditions in foreign affairs, espe
cially with Great Britain and Spain, will be
such two months hence as to compel the
Democracy to take up President Cleveland,
and that the war sentiment will be In his
favor in November. He says the administra
tion will be heard from at the proper time
on the Cuban question, and also on the Ven
ezuela boundary, and then it will be Cleve
land's call. Mr. Bookwalter also predicts
a free silver platform, and that the party
will thus be kept together for a great strug
gle. Mr. Bookwalter ls away much of his
time, but ls now cultivating his old home
constituency, and expects to go to the Chi
cago convention as a delegate.
STRIKERS TAKE A REST.
4tniet Day in the Milwaukee Street
MILWAUKEE, Wis.. May 10.—Expressed
fears of disturbances today, growing out of the
street railway -strike, were unfounded. The
day was the quietest Sunday Milwaukee has
seen in months. No cars were run, and there
wa3 no rioting. The strikers, nearly 1,000 In
number, paraded the streets in the morning,
and In the afternoon a committee of the
union stated Its case to the state board of ar
bitration. Tomorrow the company will be
heard. The strike, however, is believed to be
practically over. The company has all the
men it requires to operate Its cars, and re
fuses to treat with the strikers In any way.

SERGEA.T-AT-ARMS OF THE ST.
LOUIS CONVENTION IN THE
HE TALKS OF HIS WORK.
PLANS AND PREPARATIONS FOR
THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL
BADGES ARE WORKS OF ART.
Dencrlptlon of the lii*i.rnla of Of
fice—Manner In Which Tickets
Timothy E. Byrnes made a home run in
from Washington and New York yesterday
morning, and before any one knew he was
here he stole a base and was off on the
evening train to St. Louis, where,* during
the coming week, he will be Immersed in
business connected with the forthcoming Re
publican national convention. Mr. Byrnes
does not like to disregard the Sabbath, but
for once he was compelled to, being about
the busiest and most harrassed man ia the
Republican ranks. When a reporter called at
his residence yesterday morning the sergeant
at-arms did not come down stairs ready for
church. Instead, he came down with an arm
full of letters, fully 200 in number, which had
arrived during his absence. The assortment
was from all parts of the country, and con
sisted of as many subjects as there were let
ters. A large percentage of them were appli
cations for appointments as assistant ser-
geant-at-arms for the big convention at St
Louis. Mr. Byrnes, however, will not com
mence the selection of assistants until the
latter portion of the month. His time at
present ls too much occupied with the let
ting of contracts and arranging the multi
tudinous details of the big event. The ma
jority of the committees have left everything
to tho discretion of the master sergeant, but
Mr. Byrnes does not shirk the responsibility,
but rather feels a pardonable pride in having
the confidence of the big guns of the party.
Mr. Byrnes' trip East was for the purpose
of submitting some details for the approval
of Joseph H. Manley.chalrman of the sub
committee, and to J. S. Clarkson, chairman
of the printing committee. The conterence
took place In New York and Washington, and
while In the Eaat Mr. Byrnes met many of
the political leaders, but declines, as a mat
ter of courtesy, to discuss the political out
look at the present day.
One of the results of the trip East was
the selection of designs for the badges of
the delegates, the speaker, sergeant and
assistants, certificates of appointment, and
the design ot the tickets of admission. The
work of selection of designs, looking after
tbe purchase of stock, and supervising the
printing and manufacture of these articles,
ls In brief an Immense undertaking, and Mr.
Byrnes will have little else on his hands for
the next week or so.
WORKS OF ART IN THEIR WAY.
The designs are beautiful in the extreme,
and are the highest product of the American
engravers' and designers' art. The badges
used at the Minneapolis convention four
years ago, and the tickets as well, were then
said to be the finest ever seen in a Republi
can convention, but those designed for the
St. Louis convention surpass even these for
beauty and exquisite workmanship. The com
mittee, together with Mr. Byrnes, agreed that
the designs should not be given to the press
for reproduction, as such a step might en
courage the counterfeiter to make spurious
copies. Mr. Byrnes was willing, however,
that a verbal description of the tickets might
be given. The tickets, badges, certificates
and printed matter for the convention will
alone cost $10,000, which, with the other sums
necessary, has been subscribed by the people
of St. Louis.
The tickets for the Minneapolis convention
were designed by the American Bank Note
company, but those for the St. Louis conven
tion will be printed and engraved by the
Woodard-Tiernan concern, of St. Louis, which
company wants to show what a native Ameri
can designer can do. The tickets in design
will bear upon their faces pictures represent
ing St. Louis. The cards will be larger than
those used in Minneapolis, and will be of
different colors, to suit the different sessions,
and classes of delegates, officials and guests.
The upper face of the ticket will bear an
excellent steel engraving of the famous Eads
bridge across the Mississippi at St. Louis.
The detail of the picture is perfect, an* the
figures clearly outlined. Under the bridge
ls shown the river crowded with craft in mo
tion and tied to the decks. Upon the further
side of the bridge lies the city, with its
peaks, high buildings and spires. In the lower
left-hand corner will be a picture of Gen.
U. S. Grant's log house, at Old Orchard, S_
Louis cottage, showing the place where Grant
in his youthful days used to haul wood. The
tickets will bear the countersign of J. H.*
Manley, chairman of the subcommittee, at
the bettom line of the upper face. Upon the
reverse side will be an Intricately engraved
scroll to prevent counterfeiting, and In the
center of the scroll there will be a steel en
graving of the convention hall. Taken all in
all, the tickets will be works of the highest
A total of 210,000 tickets will be required for
the five days of the convention. The detail

the pile a certain seat for a certain session,
and placing each separate collection In its
proper place, will require many hands and
much time. And when all is done, Sergeant
at-Arms Byrnes will have the unenviable task
ef superintending the distribution to the dele
gates, alternates, officers, guests and specta
tors. There will be just fifteen tickets for
each of the 15/00 seats, and only one of these
tickets will be good at a certain specified
time. It will require exceptional vigilance
on the part of doorkeepers and ushers, as
sistant sergeants and attendants to pre
serve the system and prevent confusion. *_ ort

one of them.

Asked if he had made any appointments
as yet, Mr. Byrnes said promptly: "I have
not made a single promise."
will be of the most exquisite nature. Much
time and labor has been spent upon this
branch of the preparations, and when the
badges are delivered, they will be the most
elegant ever used at a national convention.
The selection of colors, etc., has been left
by the subcommittee wholly to Mr. Byrnes,
that gentleman having shown excellent taste
and judgment in other matters. The mak
ers will depart from the time-worn cus
tom of common metal die work, and will
use pure gold. The work will be the finest
of the jewelers' art. Each state will have
its coat of arms upon the badge. The dif
ferent states and officers will have badges
unlike in detail, but yet of the same gen
eral theme. The American eagle and the
American flag will appear upon each. The
speaker will have a badge all his own, and
so will the sergeant-at-arms. The speaker's
badge will present an eagle at the top. In
the mouth of the national bird there will
be a scroll, upon which is traced the word
"Victory." The colors to be used will be
selected with especial care, as each must
harmonize with the color of gold. The
badges will cost several thousand dollars,
and will be forever kept by those who have
the honor to be entitled to them.
Mr. Byrnes will soon return to St Louis,
and will immediately commence the work of
assigning quarters to the press. This, In It
self, will be no small matter, as hundreds of
the leading journalsof the country will be
represented. Mr. Byrnes will follow a strict
ly Impartial rule, and will treat one as well
as another. There are in all 418 prees seats,
nearly twice the number allowed at the Min
neapolis convention. The press seats have
been arranged on either flank of the speak
er's stand, in the rear of which are the
seats for the national committee. Tbe ser
geant-at-arms has also e_n_Mmeed the as
signment of seats to the different delega
tions, but has net progressed far as yet ow
ing to the press of other work.
DEATH NEEDS INVESTIGATION.

Fred P. Christopher died yesterday at his
home, 2«_ Fifth avenue so.th, ot injuries re
ceived by the explosion of gas in the base
ment ef his grocery store, Nicollet avenue
and Twenty-sixth street, Sunday mornir.g,
April 26. The circumstance was the result of
an examination being made to discover tbe
source of the escaping gas. The store was
closed for the night, Saturday at 11 p. m.,
by a clerk named Fred Brown. Shortly after
midnight tenants of the flats above the store
detected the odor of gas and notified Chris
topher. In company with Fred Brown, S. J.
Gwynn and Matt W. Gwynn he visited the
place. Access is had to the basement from
-without, a flight of stairs leading from the
street. Christopher led the party and open
ing the door to the basement lighted a match.
An explosion followed which hurled Chris
topher several feet backward into the street,
loosened part of the wall surrounding the
building and Injured the other three men.
Christopher was terribly burned about the
face, body and limbs and his three companions
also sustained burns. They quickly recov
ered, however, but Christopher was confined
to his bed until his death. He suffered in
tensely, despite the efforts of his medical at
tendants. His cheeks decayed and fell off
and. his limbs were a mass of sores. The ex
plosion resulting in the death of Christopher
has caused considerable talk in that neigh
borhood, and there is a strong desire for an
A noteworthy feature of the case was the
flooding of the basement of the store with
kerosene oil. Saturday, preceding, 180 gallons
of oil had been placed in the tank, and after
the fire it was found empty. A hole had been
made in the tank and the fluid had poured
out on the floor. It was plainly not the
wcrk of the flre, as the element did not ap
proach the tank. The police of the Fifth
precinct state that there are other suspicious
circumstances connected with the affair, and
they are now awaiting the action of the cor
oner. The latter official stated last evening
that inquiry would be made into the death
of Christopher today.
The remains of Mr. Christopher will be for
warded today to Louisville, Ky., for inter

to the depot by Upchurch lodge, A. O. U. W.,
of which he was a member.

tleship Oregon, the official trial of which will

class. She arrived here from San Francisco
this morning, and her behavior on the trip
caused Irving M. Scott, her builder, to ex
press the belief that on her official trial she
will beat the record of sister ship, the Mas
sachusetts. On tbe trip down the coast the
Oregon made fifteen or eighteen miles at the
rate of 16.34 knots an hour, and even then
was not pressed to her full capacity. The
Massachusetts' record is only 18.15 knots, so
the performance of the Oregon places her at
the head of her class.

NEW YORK, May 10.—In his weekly re
view of the financial situation in Wail street,
Henry Clews says:
Wall street has to record another week ot
dullness, postponement and partial decline in
prices. The spirit of speculation has been
absolutely stagnant, although in investment
business there haa been a fair amount of
transactions. We note no marked change in
conditions calculated to induce either free
buying or selling, nor any to materially affect
values. The London market haa been in
juriously affected by the new and perplexing
aspects of the situation in South Africa,
which has influenced our securities on the
London exchange unfavorably; and the con
tinued Continental sales of African mining
shares on that market have indirectly in
creased the exports of gold from this center.
Over two millions was shipped Tuesday;
Thursday's German steamer took out about
two and one fourth millions; and today
further sums are to be shipped; so that the
week's exports will be around five and one
: half millions. But as these exports are large
j ly incident to transient speculative conditions
in Europe, they are not expected to rea<_ any
serious aggregate. These facts, together with
a fresh attempt to raise the Cuban question
in the senate, have been the unfavorable fac
tors of the week. On the other side of the
situation, there has been a continuance of
the improvement 1b crop conditions, a main
tenance of the better tone in the commercial
markets, and the welcome resolution of the
house of representatives to adjourn on the
18th, Inst The unfavorable set of conditions
have perhaps overbalanced the favorable fac
tors; and this must be accepted as accounting
for the slight decline In quotations.
The attitude of Wall street Is simply that
of waiting for something to turn up. The
old conditions have bee* watch—l and weigh
ed until they have become stale and unln
fluentisl. They de not excite distrust, but
simply lack stimulative force. Though
speculators are wearied of dullness and post
ponement, they do not.v_.tur* to sell. The
"bears" are cautious and certain leading
operators usually found on that side of the
market are said to be prophesying a higher
range of values. Stocks certainly are not,
as a rule, distrusted; they are regarded aa
considerably below their Intrinsic value. Yet
there ls an indefinable something that pre
vents operating upon these convictions.
That something appears to be that. In the
general situation, there Is a blending of
conditions that are distinctly hopeful with
others that are disturbing. It seems to be
a broad rule of ths national condition that
while ths raw material of prosperity ls
ready to hand and waiting utilization, the
mechanlcism for converting it into wealth is
deranged and distrusted. We have really no
seriously unsound conditions of trade to con
tend with. Having undergone three years of
widespread liquidation, credit, though sus
pected In some quarters, should be in a gen
erally safe and solvent condition. There is
no inflation of values in any department of
either trade or finance. In a few branches
of industry there may have been a brief over
supply of goods, but production and Impor
tation have been and are now being very
sharply contracted and the country ls fast
moving towards a
STATE QF UNDERPRODUCTION
and of meager stocks of merchandise. Cer
tainly, too, there ls nowhere any Inflation of
prices. All the rise that occurred in the
hopefnl spurt of 1895 has sines been lost,
and the current levsl of commercial values ls
probably as low as at any thus within the
last thirty years, and on many Important
lines of goods it ls lower. In certain im
portant branches of production, there Is a
very large reduction from the volume of
previous years. Since tbe crisis of ISW, our
construction of r*llrc__ has averaged only
2,600 miles per year, whereas for the five
next previous years the average new mileage
was 6,000 miles; the outlays on rollimg stock
have alse been similarly reduced; and yet,
within this period, there has been an In
crease of fully 7,000,000 in our population-
Can it be said that rh.ee is no great increase
of railroad construction and _i_lpa__t Im
pending? There has been a little check
upon ship building, and upea the construe
tlon of dwellings. We have nowhere any
"booms;" no speculation la any kind of
commodities or enterprises. In tbe homes
of the people there has been for three years
a sharp curtailment of outlays on articles of
comfort and luxury. The postponement of
domestic repairs and replacements has been
general; and in our factories and workshops
there has been a redaction of outlays on
repairs or renovations of plant. Three years
of such deferments has accumulated a vast
amount of neceseary replenishment which
needs to be undertaken. The ceuntry ls suf
fering from this long period of enforced
conservatism and postponement of necessary
wants, and cannot much longer defer sup
plying them. Such a condition of affairs
has always proved to be the occasion for a
revival of business, sor_-jim«e steady, at
other times sudden; and there Is no apparent
good reason why the present situation should
fail to result In a like outcome. It ls an
utter misconception to suppose that this re
covery is being or will be held back by an
insufficiency of money. The amount of
money in circulation, outside the treasury,
is today $150,000,000 greater than It was in
1890, and ls larger per head of population
than it was then; and yet, at the same time,
a decline of 11 per cent in the clearings of
the banks of the United States within the
last five years, shows that less currency is
needed now than in 1890; so that we are
really in the midst of a relative inflation of
tbe currency. The facts here cited are con
clusive evidence that we have already on
hand all the material needful to a sound and
general revival of business throughout the
The mechanism required to bring abeut that
revival, however, is net in such a hopeful
condition. By the mechanism, I mean all the
various agencies needful to make accumulated
wealth reproductive. The disposition to in
vest is now held under restraint. Private
capital stands aloof from new ventures and
clings to those tested by experience, at no
matter how low rates of interest. The trustees
of capital are timid and either keep their
funds idle, or seek temporary well-secured
employment for them at nominal rates. The
contributions of Invention, in the shape of
new economies In production, are held in
abeyance; in fact, the whole mechanism
through which capital operates is suffering a
sort of paralysis. Uuqueationably, this sus
pension of enterprise is, at this stage, almost
entirely due to ,
These causes show themselves In the cor
rupt perversion of legislative powers to the
personal ends of professional politicians to a
degree which is shaking confidence in the
very basis of our political institutions. At
the moment, the special exhibition of this
prostitution of politics is found in a willing
ness to debase our monetary system to the
silver basis, for no better purpose than to
attract the support ef a mass of ignorant
voters who are misled by men Interested in
the production of that metal and are bent on
forcing an unlimited market for it, at what
ever cost to the nation. This is the point
at which the prevailing paralysis of capital
is most acute; and it is here alone that we
can look for the beginnings of improvement.
From this point of view, the preparations for
the national election are watched with __-

good reason for expecting that the party

LONDON, May 10.—The money market has
been in the same easy condition this week.
The stock market was rather inactive and
prices were irregular. Owing to the trouble

there has been a revived demand for Invest

Foreign securities were rather neglected, but
were firm, especially the Turkish, on favora

slightly. He had bees for a long tisv.

ings were comparatively small. There has
been an active professional boom 1b brew

quiet, bt»t thetr tone was tolerably firm.
Fears that the government will revoke the
charter of the British South Africa company
were practically dispelled. Little bunloe-s

CHICAGO, May 10.—The Times-Herald to

mind the experience of 18S6. The reoollec*
tion of tbe profits made by the bulls and of
the losses made by the shorts in thin month
just twelve months ago. ls the potent influ
ence at the moment.
Everybody Is disposed to see resemblance
between this spring and the last In tho
price. In the weather, In the starting up of
crep damage reports. In the appearance ot
Insects. There Is a general Inclination to
look for the same results as !__■ year, tho
bull hoping fer them a_d the l__r keeping
in fear of them. There are some colncl
denoes; a few of them real, and many of
them chiefly apparent. The very fact that
professionals last year were skeptical, which
leaded <Vuwn ___y of them with very bad
losses, and which l<_t others of them the
bull proflts they were trying fer, makes ilia
professionals this year the meet skeptical
class. The countrymen have so far taken
comparatively little laterest la the crep dam
age claim, but the I—or traders at SL. Louie,
New York and Chicago have been alert to
learn tbe truth In regard to the situation.
The b_K opinion In regard to tha crop
situation is that it Is a very uncertain *. _».
There have suddenly developed perils which
were not expected. It was anticipated that
the abnormal rains of tbe spring woubl dis
pose of the insect life left over from !_. It
has developed tbe raise did not accomplish
what was in that respect expected of them.
There le no differeneo of opinion as to tha
unuaual number of the enemies of wheat.
The conservative crop expert, however, is
simply assuming that the result ls unci-tain.
The speculator, theugh, cannot 1. — at tha
danger with ordinary equanimity. He re
members too well his costly Indifference- in
I_>._ There ls agreement on one point, that
rain would be the desirable thing all over
the winter wheat area. Nothing would make
the experts so certain of a harvest or so
quickly relieve the fears of the short seller.
The government report this afternoon Is
expected to show some gain over April. If
the rei .rt presented the situation as of May
10, It ls assumed that It would not show
this advance, but, as it will make compari
sons between the latter part of April and
the latter part of March, It Is taken for
granted that the April conditional figures,
77.10. will be raised somewhat, possibly to 81
or ever. This latter conditional avorag-i.on the
area announced last December, would mean
a winter wheat yield of about 300,000.000
bushels. It Is not to be forgotten that very
large clearances of wheat are near at hand.
