I CAME TO HIM IN DREAMS.

Marion, Ind., Aug. 2. Five year ago
J. O. Clark, a machinist of this city,
dreamed that he perfected an aaratu
for the manufacture of fjas from crude
p-trol-um til. The dream was so real
that it made an impression on him and
bore on his mind for no me time. He ex
perienced a second dream that pictured
the machine perfectly. He related the
matter to his two sons, who laughed
at the Btory.
The father was ro impressed, how
ever, that he rigged a crude temporary
machine and applied the proevsa as he
saw it in his dream. Ills experiment
waa a success and his eons liecame in
terested. Models were made and tested
with good results and a working model
hjs finally made and filed In the pat
ent office at Washington and a patent
secured on the process.
A practical test of the invention was
made in Summitville Wednesday in the
prer.-nce of a numlier of manufacturers.

onstration Wednesday showed that gas

convention met was to select candi

fulfilled thistask by unanimously mim
ing Dr. Joshua W. Hering. of Carroll.
and J. I-rank turner, of 'I a hot. to
succeed themselves in the places men
tioned. This action, however, was a
foregone conclusion, and the real bus
iness of the conveutiou was the formu-.
lation and adoption of a platform upon
which the Democrats could go before
the people of the state with a reason
able show of wluniitg. The combined
sagacity of all the Democratfc leaders
li the state was called into requisition
for this purpose, and under the advice
and guidance of i.ornuii the following
decla ration upon the chief point in is
sue was evolved:
Principal Plank of the Platform.
"The Democratic party represents
mure than 40.ui hi majority of the while
people' of Maryland. They, iu common
with their breihrcn of other states In
to which large masses of colored voters
have been iujected into the body po
litic, recognize that the ix-ace. good
order, personal safety and projier de
velopment of our materi.-il interests de
pend upon the control of the common
wealth by its intelligent white resi
dents. Without the aid of the tKUXlO
colored voters the Republican party in
Maryland would be a hopeless minor
ity. We. therefore, without hesitation.
prclaiiii that the success of the Ieino-
mtic party will man that while we
shall deal with perfect fairness iu se
curing all the benefits of good gov
ernment and full and free opportuni
ties for education to all classes, such
action must be taken as to prevent the
control of the state government from
passing into the hands of those who
have neither the ability nor the interest
to manage public affairs wisely and
well." T lie rest of the platform is also
devoted to state interests.
