telegram to town stating that it
would be unwise for the convention

William K. Mason, the leader of the

at bis ipiarters at Spring'tield Tues

Yesterday's state convention at
Sprinjlicld was dominated by the
i'ulloiu ring augmented by the Cook
county persuasion. YA'ulff was nom

to a cut-and-flried scheme, anil the
C'ullora faction, which decided after
the democratic convention had nom

contest involving the i antic before
th people would be suicidal to the re
publicans in a cae already conceded

convention pass over without voic
ing sentiments as to fenatorial pre
ferences. The fact that Cullom has
the control of the republicans of the
state, and that his career is settled if
by nothing else, by his identity with
the interstate commerce law, under
which the government was forced to
nssume responsibility in the recent
strike, put the seal on his fate. Cul

conseqnently his greatest admirer at

The frequent and eager inquiries
manic respecting the scojkj of Heprc
aontai'vc Springer's recent bill for
the arbitration, under certain cir
ca mttanRJ, of lalror controversies,
prompt tills statement for public in
The bill contemplates the appoint
ment by the president- and ttenate of
three commissioners with power to
hear and arbitrate labor controver
sies when submitted in writing, for
1. When the txiard of arbitration
shall have received from one party a
complaint, a copy of the same shall
lie furnished by the board to the
other party, together with notice
when and where the complaints will
2. Kvcj if a controversy between
an employer and an employe shall
not have been submitted to the
board, still the board shall have pow
er to investigate the cause or causes
of the controversy and to report
thereon to the president, who shall
transmit such report to congress.
3. In certain cases where the
board has acquired jurisdiction by
the consent of both parties its tie
Hsion may be enforced by the board
the same as a decision of a court is
enforced. It is only in such cases
that its decisions are compulsory.
In other cases the decision of the
board may be certified to a regularly
constituted court for enforcement;
and. again, in others, its decision
carries only a moral and persuasive
force which, with time, would wax
more and more effective.
Th bill evinces a wide grasp of a
subject both speculative and deli-fate.

CONFLAGRATION AT CHENOA.
Two lllock. of lire Finest Buildings In the
Chf.soa, Ills., July 8 6. Six hundred
thousand dollars worth of property vt-us
destroyed by fire here in one hour. The
lire is supposed to have been caused by a
Chicago aud Alton south-bound train, as
a few minutes after the train passed the
livery born of Clayton Balliugcr some one
noticed the fire start in the rear of the
above frame structure and from its start
ing place it went until the entire business
portion, except two brick buildings and
some residence, were wiped out. The
loss was total over two entire blocks.
which were occupied by the linest build

J. T. McKeever, a tailor, who had rooms
lu the llickcy block, in order to save bis
life made a leap out of a window, and iu
the fall landed on a picket iron railing,
lie is in a serious condition. The wind,
which was blowing from the southwest,
assisted the fire in its work of destruction,
and it was like a roaring, seething mass
of flames, which kept going until they
naturally ran out of material. The citi
zens turned out cu-musse to save the con
tents of buildings, but the goods saved
are few. Quite a number were overcome
by heut aud smoke and were glad iudeed
wbeu they reached a place of safety. The
wiud carried sparks towards northeast
from town so that . considerable dauiage
was done to farmers iiv meadows and oat
fields being consumed. This is the worst
fire Chenoa ever had.
