MOSCOW, May 20.—The rain, which had
been persistently falling ever since the czar
and czarina arrived here Monday, has ceased
this evening, and there is promise of fine
■weather for tomorrow's state entry into Mos
cow. This is the occasion of the triumphal
progress from the Petrovsky palace to the
Kremlin, for which preparations have been
made on a larger scale than for any other
event of the coronation festivities. The czar
and czarina tomorrow will visit the cathedrals,
where they will venerate the sacred relics
and offer up prayer at the tombs of their
imperial ancestors. The interesting ceremony
of the visit of the czar and czarina to the
shrine of the Iberian madonna, the most sa

upon the entry into the Kremlin. After the
day's ceremonies, the royal couple will re

The most notable arrival today, though It
was entirely without ostentation, was that of

The French mission also arrived today. Great
preparation had been made to have the French
representation on a scale suitable to Russia's
nearest ally among the nations. Two of the
largest palaces In Moscow have been rented
and refitted in the costliest manner for France,
especially for the coronation. Here the Freruih
ambassador will give a ball during the festivi
ties, which is to be attended by the czar and

alone is $70,000. The French ambassador will

Officially Celebrated Throughout tbe
LONDON, May 20.—The official celebration
of the queen's birthday, which occurs Sun
day, took place today throughout the country
and the empire in general. On the parade
ground of the horse guards there was the
usual attractive ceremony of trooping the col
ors, and it was witnessed by a large crowd of
distinguished people, including the Prince and
Princess of Wales, the Duke and Duchess
of York, Prince and Princess Christian
of Schleswlg-Holstein, the Duke of Cam
bridge, Prince Charles of Denmark and
the commander-ln-chief, Lord Wolseley.
Her majesty was born May 24, 1819.
The attractiveness of the trooping of the
colors here, however, was marred by some
lively rain showers. There were the usual
queen's birthday observances at all the garri
son towns and naval stations.
MATTER OF FORM.
The Pretoria Sentences Will Not Be
LONDON, May 20.—A dispatch from Sir
Hercules Robinson says that the death sen

Hammond, Phillips and Farrar—have been
commuted to fifteen years' imprisonment, add
ing, however, that the latter is only a matter
of form, and that the sentence is not likely to
bo carried out. The further commutation of
the leaders' sentence will be discussed next
week. Gov. Robinson adds that the fines in
the case of the other prisoners will remain,
but the sentence of banishment will be sus
pended if the prisoners give their word of
honor not to interfere in future in the poli
tics of the Transvaal.

PRETORIA, May 20.—The sentences of the

DECATUR, Ind., May 20.—A gang of fifty

They held up several citizens and attacked
women on the streets. After procuring
money enough to buy several kegs of beer
they opened a camp on the banks of the
river near the town, where they held high
carnival. The marshal and the sheriff, with
fifty armed deputies, atempted to arrest them,
when a hot battle ensued. The tramps were
all armed with revolvers, and over a hundred
shots were exchatged. Dan Haley, a deputy,
was fatally shot in the abdomen. Several
other citizens were severely wounded. Ten
tramps were captured and lodged in jail. The
rest fled, many of whom were wounded,
and left blood tracks as they ran.

now rounding his sixtieth year, and is a na
tive of Ohio. In 1860 he was a minister, and
wishing to take the part of a patriot church
man, he became the chaplain of an Ohio
regiment and marched to the war with his
fellow citizens. It was at Winchester that
he was shot and captured by the enemy, only
to be sent to Libby prison, where, after four

New Mystery Regarding the Alleged
WILMINGTON, N. C, May 20.—The British
steamship Horsa, the vessel which has become
notorious as an alleged Cuban filibuster, put
in at Southport today. She had been on fire,
and was pretty thoroughly gutted, being not
much more than a shell. She sailed from Port
Morant, Jamica, May 13. Fire broke out on
the 16th, and was not under control until the
morning of the 17th. She was then 300 miles
from one of the Bahama islands. The
steamer was commanded by Capt. C. E. Cook,
who was found to be missing between 3 and 4
o'clock on the morning of the 18th. It is sup
posed that he fell overboard and was drowned.
Tlw crew consisted of twenty men, seven of
whom are Spaniards. Charles E. Mclntosh,
first mate of the Horsa, brought her into
Southport. The origin of the fire is involved
in much mystery. The disappearance of the
captain also excites oomment. The crew is

DUBUQUB, 10., May 20.—The Democratic
convention today was silver from start to
finish. The silver men controlled every move
and the final result is that, with the exception
of delegates from two districts, tb« lowa dele-
tinued his work as a speaker for the Chris
tian commission in mauy cities of the coun
try, and returned to the ministry when the
war was at an end. He was now sent to
Portsmouth, 0., where he improved his op
portunities by building a handsome church.
Later he took up church extension work, and
traveled for sixteen years in that cause.
As secretary of the mission board hi 3 work
was nothing short of marvelous. He has
an absolute genius for collecting money for
missionary purposes, and was sent back to
his labors in that field in 1884, and still holds
that post. He predicted when first he en
tered the missionary service that the Meth
odists should have $1,000,000 for missions.
His prophecy is now a fact. In four years
he raised a debt of $40,000 from the Metropol
itan church in Washington. He is an ear
nest, zealous, virile man, light-hearted as a
child and gentle as a woman.
gation to Chicago Is solid and uncompromis
ingly for the white metal. Even the districts
captured by the gold men are of no benefit
to them, because of the adoption of an Iron
clad unit rule in the instructions. The con
vention was not only one of the largest and
most enthusiastic ever held in lowa, but it
was also one of the storiniast. Trouble threat
ened last night over tte temporary chairman
ship, was smoothed over, and all went well
until the platform was reached. Then the
storm broke and pandemonium reigned. A
dozen men were on the floor at once, all
trying to talk at the aaine time. The chair
man was unable to control them, and appeals
for order from the more conservative were
unavailing, until the- delegates had worn
themselves out. Then, they settled down to
business, and the white metal men completed
their victory by the adoption of one of the
strongest silver platform* adopted by any
state this year. The indorsement of Gov.
Boies was hearty and enthusiastic, and his
reception by the convention was one of the
most stirring scenes of the day.
The convention was called to order by C. M.
Runk, chairman of the state committee, who
named S. S. Wright, a unit silver man, for
temporary chairman. Mr. Wright, in accord
ance with the agreement made, was heartily
received, even by the free coinage men,- and
his address applauded. E. M. Carr was made
permanent chairman, and delivered an ad
dress that set the convention to cheering for
Bcies and free coinage. Mr. Boies was called
for, but finally excused himself.
When the election of delegates was taken
up, Mr. Boies was chosen to head the delega
tion at Chicago by acclamation. S. D. Evans,
W. A. Wells and L. T. Gennng were elected
to complete the list of delegates at large.
During the election of delegates the committee
sent for him came in with Gov. Boies. His
appearance was the signal for another en
thusiastic demonstration, and at the conclu
sion of the election of delegates he said:
"It would be impossible tor me to express in
language the gratification I fenl to meet you
here and under these circumstances. (Ap
plause). When this battle began a few weeks
ago I was determined that the masses of the
Democratic party of this sreat state of lowa
should be heard on this occasion. I want
you from this time forward to know that in
lowa the spirit of tbe Democratic party lies
within the masses (applause), and from this
time forward I want the masses of the Demo
cratic party, to take, its -destinies Into their
own hands, and if they do I. assure you that
the Democratic party will march on to a cer
tain victory." (Applause.)
The majority of the committee on resolu
tions presented Its report next. On the mon
ey question the resolution* offered are as fol
"The Democracy of lowa, In convention as
sembled, hereby reaffirms its allegiance to the
time-honored Democratic doctrine of bimet
allism, to the use of both gold and silver as
primary money, and the coinage of both at a
ratio without charge or limit.
"We hold to the use of both gold and silver
as the standard money of the country, and to
the coinage of both gold and silver, without
discrimination againßt either metal or charge
for mintage. In the judgment of this con
vention, the explicit pledge, of the Demo
cratic party, if fairly and honorably kept, re
quires the constant effort of every loyal Dem
ocrat to accomplish the repeal of all laws
heretofore enacted through the instrumentality
of the Republican party, which discriminates
against silver and in favor of gold, and the
substitution thereof of affirmative legislation
which shall, on some terms or other, restore
silver to equal rights with gold in the mints
and coinage of the country.
"We affirm as the deliberate conviction of
this convention that the act of 1873, In so
far as it demonetized silver and established
gold as the single unit of value, is a flagrant
violation of one of the most Important pro
visions of the constitution of the United
States, a violation which every political party
ought to condemn, and every good citizen
should assist In expunging from the statutes
of the republic. We therefore favor the im
mediate repeal of all laws by which silver
was demonetized and demand its unqualified
restoration to the right of free and unlim
ited coinage In the mints of the nation as
money of final redemption at the old ratio of
16 to 1.
"We hereby enter our most earnest protest
against all schemes for the retirement of our
non-interest bearing national paper currency
and the substitution therefor of $500,000,000
of interest-bearing bonds, to become an addi
tional burden upon the producing classes,
that national banks may be supplied with
interest-bearing capital on which to trans
act their Individual business. And we also
protest against the further Issuance and sale
! of government bands to acquire gold with
I which to redeem the same.''
After instructing the delegates to vote as
j a unit, Boies is indorsed for president as fol
"Reposing full faith and confidence in the
Democracy, patriotism and ability of Horace
Boies, formerly governor of the state of lowa,
we hereby declare it to be the duty of every j
patriot in lowa, without regard to former
party afflliations, "to use all honorable means
to secure his nomination at the Democratic
national convention, to be held at Chicago
July 7, 1896, for the high and responsible of
fice of president of these United States, to
the end that the principles of Jeffersonian
Democracy be preserved and promoted, and
liberty and prosperity be restored to the great
body of the people, and the delegates to the
convention are expressly authorized to place
his name In nomination at Chicago."
Judge French, of Scott county, presented
a minority report, as follows:
"Sound money Is necessary to the prosperity
of the people. We therefore oppose all devices
for debasing the currency, whether by further
issue of government paper or the free coin
age of silver at 16 to 1. Consistent with these
I rinclples, we favor the largest and most lib
eral use of silver possible, and the strict
maintenance at par with gold of all outstand
ing currency of the government. We heartily
indorse the administration of President Cleve
land for wisdom, courage and fidelity to the
"Committed as the Republican party Is to
the re-enactment of McKlnleyism, we welcome
a renewal of the contest of 1892, upon this
issue, with an abiding faith that the people
will again register the same verdict as in that
contest upon the odious system of bounties
and class favoritism."
Judge French made an impassioned speech
in favor of his report. Judge Van Wagenen
replied. Ex-Mayor Vallmer, of Davenport,
also supported the minority report, and Mr.
Bashor. of Waterloo, opposed it. A stormy
Ecene followed, and for half an hour the fac
tions howled themselves hoarse. At last the
rcll call was finished,-and the minority report
was rejected, 617% to 216%. The majority re
port was then adopted by acclamation. An
other wrangle followed a motion to approve
the choice of district caucuses for district
delegates, but the motion was carried unan
imously and the convention adjourned.

ABERDEEN, S. D., May 20.—The sound
money and administration men in the Demo
cratic convention received somo important
reinforcements this morning, and several dele
gations, notably from the Hills, which had
leanings towards silver, and so announced,
have changed, to a right about position by
reason of a flood of telegrams from different
constituents. The selection of Ramsey for
chairman Indicated that the adminlstratlonlsts ,
were in control. Last night the silverltes
were making claims that they had the major
ity, but Col. Sheafe, of Watertown; A. Tins
ley, of Sioux Falls; National Committeeman
Woods and other leaders pulled hard for sound j
meney all night, and when the convention met :
felt confident that they had a few votes to
spare. The convention was called to order at
2 o'clock, but previously the state central
committee held a meeting and agreed upon
Ramsey for temporary chairman.
At the evening session of the convention the
chairman appointed the following committees:
Resolutions —Carland, of Mlnnehaha; Mal
loy, of Union; Cogley, of Moody; Scheafer,
of Codlngton: Richards, of Beadle, Crofoot,
Credentials—Tinsley, of Minnehaha; Mal
loy, of Union; Cook, of Roberts; Zollman, of
Hanson; Harris, of Brown; Ilealy, of Ed
munds; McKinley, of Fall River, and Mc-
Donald, of Lawrence.
The temporary organization was made per
manent, and the report of the credentials
committee was adopted without a contest.
The report of the committee on order of busi
ness was amended so as to have the re
port of the committee on resolutions read and
acted upon before the election of delegates.
This precipitated a hot debate. In which
Lynch, of Huron, pronounced a diatribe on
the "officeholders controlling the convention."
To give the committee on resolutions a
chance to frame a report the convention at
9 o'clock took a recess of half an hour.
The convention adopted the following finan
"The Democratic party of South Dakota is
