was button-holed by a Bazoo representa

a degree makes me teel as it i never wouia

"It was one of the grandest gatherings
ever took place in the nation, at least
everybody who was there seemed to think
so. Chicago's citizens were pleased with
the delegation and the delegation was high-

"What about Kellv and Bntler?"
"Well, I think they were actuated by
the same feeling, but their ideas of the sit
uation were not in accord with the majori
ty. The convention, however, gave them
respectful consideration and I think the
majority of the Tammanyites felt satisfied
they were in the wrong and will eheerfuily
5unnipsce to the choice of the majority.
Cleveland was the choice of fully three
fourths of the delegates present, from the
hetrinnintr. and thev stood firmly by him.
There never was any doubt about his nom
ination. The voting ana cnangmg irom

because he succeeded to and continued the

as to Mr. ilendricKB, he is tne most popu

"News was received in this city yesterday
that looked toward the retiring of Fourth

the past week and will arrive in St. Louis
TALMAGE TAKES THE WABASH.
The followinff telegram by Associated
Press was received late yesterday evening
at the Bzaoo omce and which settled the
Question as to who would be at the helm of
the Wabash system :
New York, July 12. 6eceivere 01 the
Wabash will make a general announce
ment Monday that Vice-President Talmage,
of the Missouri Pacific, has severed
his connection with that property and will
take entire charge of the general manage

Finding A. M. Hager at his residence on
the corner of Third and Grand avenue, the
reporter interrogated him :
"Hear the news ?"
Mr. Hager No, nothing much, only the
old reliable Missouri Pacific is on top and
the smiles of good fortune are upon us.
"Renorter Have not heard from New
York since you discussed your biscuit
and ice tea, 1 suppose.

The renorter then read the above dis
patch to him as he looked astonishingly
over the ton of his eve glasses at the read

from his lips.
H. Where did that come from ?
R. It is dated New York.
H. Yes, I think I hear you.
R. What do you know about it?
R. Who do you think will be the man
aoer of the Missouri Pacific now ?
H. Mr. Hoxie, I expect will be, with a
probability that A. W. Dickinson will
stand at the head of the operative depart

bearing of Talmage, or how it will affect
H It will have no visible effecU Many,
yes all the employes will regret his depart
ure. The operatiye employes lose their
best friend when Mr. Talmage leaves and
he is probably the most skilled transpor
tation man now living, and it will be a
frigid day when the system gets his equal.
The reporter then sought Mr. Van Dyne,
superintendent of the M., K. & T. from
Hannibal to Taylor, Texas. He was
found on Broadway, seated beneath his
own vine and fig tree, drinking ice water
and endeavoring to keep cool.
The news from New York was read to
that gentleman, and while it was not en
tirely unexpected it was still a surprise.
Mr. Van Dyne said : "The Pacific loses
a mighty good railroad manager and the
Wabash gets the best one on the continent.
While Mr. Talmage has an exterior some
what abrupt, he is the kindest one of them
all to his subordinates.
R I hear that it is possible that Mr.
Dickinson will step into Mr. Talmage'a
Van Dyne Possibly he will. He knows
the territory and the wants of the system
better than any other man except Mr. Tal
R You look upon Mr. Talmage as a
skilled manager, I suppose ?
Van D. None better. The keen and
quick perception of the man is remarkable
apd a memory perfectly wonderful. We
all part with him with profound regret.
He is a darling to his men and they never
forget his kindness.
F. B. Drake, train master, who was
formally Mr. Talmage's private secretary,
was met at the union depot negotiating
with a Pullman car conductor for the oc
cupation of a downy birth to St. Louis.

Talmage has left the Pacific and gone to

D. How did you learn it?

crossings going east.

erlies are so numerous, varied and incom
prehensible that man can scarcely realize
the cause of such a beneficial thing re
maining undiscovered for years when in its
I use so much good can be accomplished, es
pecially for eyery farmer. It is the tann
er's sefety, for it will protect his fields and
crops from depredations of all animals;
the farmer's shield, for it is impregnable to

some sign of life. She concluded she would
replant it, which she did. Last Sunday we
saw this curious plant. It was full of life,
growing very nicely. We can safely assert
that there is not a farmer in the state of
Missouri who would not fence his farm
with this wonderful thing if certain that
Mr. Fleming made no misrepresentation
of the cactus hedge. We appeal to all
farmers who are vitally interested in the
subject, and as a matter of economy of
money and labor, to properly and promptly
investigate and see the cactus hedge. Mr.
Fleming being a man of varacity, honor,
and truthful in all his assertions, does not
ask you to take his word
if doubt exists in your mind.
He can and will prove every assertion
made to your entire satisfaction if neces
sary. He will take you to where his fence
has been in successful operation for years,
proving beyond a doubt that nothing has
been stated but facts. Farmers, don't hesi
tate. Call and see this for yourself, and
should you purchase you will save more
money than you ever did before. Since
Messrs. Fleming & Co.'s arrival here they
have sold several thousand dollars worth
of territory and have some more to dis
pose of. Men seeking profitable invest
ment, we know of nothing as safe or profit
able. Messrs. Fleming & Co. extend
cordial invitation to farmers, citizens and
all to visit their nursery on Third street,

A mass meeting of the democrats of the
city was held in the court house yard last
night, at which there were a large crowd
of men and boys and a few ladies in the
early part of the meeting. The Sedalia
cornet bnnd furnished the music.
The meeting was addressed first by Col.
Lfcy. who called order and stated that the
object 01 the convention was the ratifica
tion of the nomination at Chicago of Gro
ver Cleveland, of New York, for president,
and Thos. A. Jdenriricks.of lndiana,tor vice-
president. "The future," said Mr. Lacy,
"is full of hope, enthusiasm and life. The
democratic party is arrayed against its old
foe, and when the ballots of the people are
counted on the evening of the 4th of No
vember, that party will name the president
of the United estates. We have come to
say amen to ratify one of the best nomi
nations ever made, ihe platform is the
grandest arraignment of the republican
party ever promulgated. The democratic
party does not ask for the spoils of office :
it asks to right the wrongs committed by
the party m power: It is notoaly our duty
to ratify, but to go to work and elect
this ticket to roll up the biggest demo
cratic majority Missouri and Pettis county
ever had. We must elect every man on
the ticket, from president to constable.
We will place in the executive chairs of
this country the first democrat, Grover
Cleveland, and that true old Koman,
Thomas A. Hendricks."
George P. B. Jackson was then intro
duced and spoke warmly in support of the
work of the Chicago convention, whose
nominations will result in victory for the
democratic party. He said that victory,
so long a stranger to the democratic hosts,
would be realized and these nominees
placed in the first positions of the land
He deplored the physical debility of
Samuel J. lilden, but said his mantle
of greatness had rightfully fallen on the
shoulders of Gov. Cleveland, who would
plant the triumphant nag of his party on
the capitol at Washington. He had hoped
for the nomination of the old ticket, but
was satisfied. With Hendricks m the
second place, the election of these men
would help to wipe out the stain ot fraud
of 1876. In the democratic ranks there
were no murmurs except from Ben Butler,
whom nothing would satisfy.
Hon. George W. Longan then came for
ward and made a telling and masterly
speech for the ticket. His arraignment of
the misdeeds of the republican party was
powerful, and elicited much hearty ap
plause from the audience.
Mr. bchneider, 01 Buffalo, N. Y., was
then introduced by Mr. Lacy. He had
been associated in business and socially
with (jroyer Cleveland m the "Queen City
of the Lakes" for forty years, and could
testify to the fact that Mr. Cleveland was
to-day the most popular man in New
York. He spoke of Mr. Cleveland's elec
tion as mayor of the city of Buffalo by a
majority ot 5,000, when the republican
majority a year before had been 3,0(K).
Mr. Cleveland was a man of the people, and
he expected to see a majority of 100,000 in
New York for the head of the democratic
Mr. G. W. Barnett spoke next, and
showed his loyalty to the party by his
hearty endorsement of the work of the
Chicago convention. He spoke of the
tattoed aspect of the republican nominee
and compared it with the clean front of
Cleveland and Hendricks.
Speeches were made by Charles E. Yea-
ter and Dr. King. Mr. Yeater said that
he was a young man, and would cast his
first vote for president for Grover Cleve
land, and did not think it would be thrown
away. Dr. King's remarks were full of
humor, as on all occasions, but they had
much weight, and at their close, he pro
posed three cheers for the nominees, which
were full and heartily given.
If the meeting last night can be taken
as an indication, it is safe to sav that
Cleveland's election will be almost unanimous.
How They are Working and
What the Employes are
From Col. J. Maidhof, of New York :
"I have suffered severely for the last ten

After August 1st, train agents will
be placed on all trains of the Gould sys
tem. These men enter the train as it ap
proaches a terminal point, take up the

the agents are expected to issue checks to
all the passengers on the train. His
checks are accounted for by duplicates,
and they, with the conductor's checks
taken up, are sent to the auditor's office,
and the number of each must correspond
with the other.
