a determining factor in the coming
election, and success will at least com
mand respect, if nothing more.
I make no argument on existing po
litical questions and conditions, but I
believe it wise to regard the mutterings
of an impending storm, foreshadowed
by such a gathering as the one I have
just attended. In many respects these
people may be wrong; in some they
must be right, and besides they are
men who are sincere in their convic
tions. They have no desire to wreck
the country, but are liable to be mis
led by false leaders.
This country is too great to be ruined
by any political party. It survived the
four years of the terrible civil war, in
volving the sacrifice of hundreds of
thousands of human lives and billions
of dollars. It will survive the present
crisis, and despite Hhe prophets of evil
omen, when the polls close on Nov. 3,
whatever the result, the country will
"still live." Only those who wish to
"avoid the rush" need take the finan
cial situation so much to heart as to
■tart for the cemetery now.

PHILADELPHIA. July 27.— An important
Meeting of officers of the railroad companies
that do bituminous c&al trade was held at
the office of the Pennsylvania Railroad com
pany In this- city today. The meeting, was
the first that the bituminous coal roads have
had for a long time, aud it was called by the
Pennsylvania company. For some time past
there have been a number of small Irregu
larities in the transportation of this coal, and
■while there was a disposition to maintain
rates and prices, the actions of some of the
railroads have created considerable uneasi
ness. At first it was thought that it would
be best to submit the matter to arbitration,
but it was later decided to get the presidents
of the roads to get here and try to bring
order out of chaos.
The presidents present were George B. Rob
errs, of the Pennsylvania Railroad company;
John K. Cowan, president and receiver, and
Oscar G. Murray, receiver of the Baltimore &
Ohio; M. E. Ingalls, of the Chesapeake &
Ohio; Chauncey M. Depew, of the New York
Central, which owns the Beech Creek rail
road, and F. J. Kimball, receiver and presi
dent of the Norfolk & Western. Besides these
each ofnecer had representatives with him.
The meeting lasted for some time, and at its
conclusion it was agreed to bury all differ
ences and continue to maintain rates.
LOXE ROBBER KILLED,
But It Cost the Life of the Sheriff,
a a Well.
NEVADA CITY, Cala., July 27.— The dead
body of Sheriff David Douglass and the corpse
of an unknown highwayman were today found
lying a few feet apart in a wood two miles
from town. There were five empty chambers
in the pistol of the sheriff, who had been shot
through the heart and in the right eye and
hand. The bullets of the sheriff had gone
through the robber's heart, abdomen and hip.
The unknown man had a rifle, but it had
not been used. It is supposed Douglass was
ehot by an unseen and unknown confederate
of the highwayman. A number of bold high
way robberies recently reported in this neigh
borhood have all seemed to be the work of
one man. who stopped coaches and private
conveyances on the roads near Nevada City.
The sheriff and his deputies had been untiring
In their efforts to capture the highwayman.
Finally Sheriff Douglass, believing that a large
squad of deputies served to put the highway
man on his guard, determined to attempt to
chase him single-handed. He started out yes
terday, accompanied only by his dog. The
animal returned at midnight and at daybreak
searching parties tracked the sheriff to the
spot where officer and prisoner lay dead side

COLUMBUS, 0., July 27.— Hon. Mr.
Frlcken pitched great ball for the
Saints today and fielded his position
admirably, but tile team lost an excit
ing twelve-inning contest for the sim
ple reason that Bumpus Jones pitches,
a little better than the ex-Southern
leaguer. In fact, the Saints would
never have scored after the first inn
ing had Jones been well supported,
and, as it finally turned out, the Sen
ators were compelled to play three ex
tra innings before the third straight
game from the Saints was safely fin
Fricken opened up the festivities by
striking Arlie Latham out and the next
two men could not get the ball out of
the diamond, in the second Shugart's
error, Parrott's single, a man hit by a
pitched ball and Hassamaer's safe
drive gave Columbus two runs. Sharp
made a three-bagger in the third and
Pickett threw over third base when
the ball was fielded in, allowing Sharp
to score, after that Columbus did not
get a hit off Pricken until the seventh
when three singles and a sacrifice net
ted two runs.
Stratton reached first on a force out
in the visitors' half of the first inning
and scored on George's two-bagger. In
the second two errors by Sharp were
followed by Fricken's clean hit, add
ing another run to the score. Fast
fielding held the Saints down until the
ninth, when errors by Sharp and Can
tillon, a base on balls and a hit al
lowed them to tie the score.
It was an even shake until the twelfth
and after one man was out, three hits,
a base on balls and an out to deep
center gave Columbus three runs anfl ;
the game. Daniels pitched the last !
inning and O'Rourke led off with a \
three-bagger, scoring on rsio-cr^k's i
out to center field. Kraus batted for
Stratton and went out to Genins. Then
George and Burns each made singles.
It looked bad for Columbus, but Pick
ett fouled out to Latham, ending the
agony. The score:

two bases to left center and scoring
when Burnett lined the ball out for a
single, Burnett reaching second on the

the second run, and, after Dungan had
reached third and was trying to score

Connors picked out a hit and W.llmot's

Whistler was out when Hines singled

To the Sporting Editor of the Globe.
In C. P. Caylor' s letter in this morning's
issue, he speaks of Delehanty's four home
runs and a single out of five times at bat,
and says it is something never done before.
In that he is mistaken, for the year that
Jack Crooks played second for Omaha he
made the same record in a game on the West
Side grounds against St. Paul. He put four
long flies over the center field fence and
made a corking single out of five times at bat.
Caylor also speaks of Robinson losing a
joint of his little finger a weak ago by ampu
tation, and says* that is a new circumstance
and that it would hurt him throwing.
In a Sunday game on the West side grounds
Gunson, of the Kansas City team, had a
i joint broken oft his little finger, but I saw
him playing in Springfield, Mo., last year and
he told me he never noticed It was gone,
so that Mr. Caylor is misinformed regarding
these two items. Yours truly,

First of Trial Raoei Mast be Sailed
OAKVILLE, Ont.. July 27.-The first of the
trial races between the yachts Canada and
Zelma was scheduled for today. The course
was twelve miles, triangular. The boats got
off shortly after 2 o'clock in a light and
changeable wind from the southwest. The
TfuT so close tnat v was hard to say
which had the advantage. When near the
nnish, a puff of wind threw the Canada back
on the Zelma, causing her to foul a buoy
and the race was declared off. It will be run
over tomorrow. If no foul had taken place,
the chances are the Zelma would have won
by a few seconds.

IOWA PALLS. 10., July 27.— Frank Pier
son, in a fit of insanity, cut the throats of
his aged father and mother, and then cut his
own throat, at their home in this city at an
early hour this morning. Before beginning
his dastardly work, the maniac had started
a fire in a trunk filled with combustibles in
his room up stairs, with the evident inten
tion of cremating the bodies of his intended
victims. The weapon used was a razor, with
which he stabbed his father, but only suc
ceeded in inflicting a slight flesh wound.
He then caught his mother with his left hand
I and drew the razor across her neck, cutting a
'deep gash from the ear to the middle of the
| neck. The lunatic then cut his own throat
| from ear to ear, partially severing the wind
I pipe, but, strange to say, is still living,
