The democrats of Ohio stand by their
colors of 188 and are prepared to make
a lively fight against a ruinous tariff that
fosters trusts. Every word in the plat
form adopted for Campbell to run on
bristles with good sense and appeals
strongly for the support of the honest
toilers. It is said that Foraker feels that
he bat a hard fit;'1 1 before him. The
wage workers are fast arranging them
selves on the side of democracy and de
cline to listen to the subtle arguments
that led tbem to support Harrison, a pro
tectlve tariff and Foraker. When they
are out of labor it is made only too plain
that the tariff does not increase their
wages or give them employment, at any
price. While a few are earning wages
thousands are out of work and their
families suffering for food and clothes.

Dr. Green said that it was the intention of

The idea wan to obtain them wire from the
telegraph company and uy the company a

the advantages to them if the arrangement

that tbey would get any (unities except in
places where the Western Union had no of

thought, would lie cond data.

yesterday relieved J. N. Abbott of his du

Chicago, Sept. ft. Groundless jealousy
led to the deliberate butchery of 'Mrs.
Josephine Johnon by ber husband, O. E.
Johnson last night The murd-rous work
was done in lr. W. E. Morgun's handsomely
furnished office, 84 East Twenty-ninth street,
near Cottage Grove avenue. The man and
bis wife had been left alone in the office for
S moment, aud Johnson had looked and
bolted every door. Divining his intent, his
wife screamed for help, but was answered
by a blow that felled ber to the floor.
Vain Attempt at Rescne.
Kneeling over the prostrate woman John
son held her fast. A Swedish dirk Was al
ready open in one hand, and with the other
hand be slowly laid back the folds of his
wife's dress that bis aim might hs sure.
Men were air ody clamoring at his office

an inch at a time, the knife was driven in
until It was buried to. the hilt. It was with
drawn as slowly as it bad bn impelled and
once more sank into the quivoring flesh. Six
times this was repeated, Johnson watching
the spurt of blond that followed each stroke
with a critical eye. There was no nervous
ness; it waa the coolness of a surgeon in the
midst of an operation.
Help Cnmee Too Late.
The murderer was jnt rising from his
knees, knife in hand, when the door crathed
open befiM-e the shoulders of the now fren
sied crowd. Those wbo were in front were
thrown almost headlong into the fast grow

may, fiut Johnson attempted no resist

Hartel, who lorcl his way through the
throng from fhestrvet. Take me to the
station where I can do no more harm."
Every Threat In the IlearU
There was a pause while a hasty examina
tion was made of the woman's wounds, Kacb

and from the wounds blood was flowing in
streams that l pattered furniture and left
great blotches on tbe white surface of the

Halford, and other distlngaisl sd citizens at
tended tbe celebration at the Tenneot farm
near here yesterday of tbe est ablUhment of
tbe old "Log" college. Tbe exercises of the
day were really commemor itive of the
founding of the Presbyterian church ia the
United States. The Log collt ge was estab
lished in 17& by William Tennent, and
flourished until 174 3, when Priaoeton college
was founded, and it may be said that the
Princeton institution of learning sprang
from the primitive college established by
Tennent When Thursday's o. lebrat ion was
first talked of. President Harr son promised
to attend, and he has kept that promise.
A Ride to Rememlier.
The presidential party started from Mr.
Wanamaker' residence at Jmkintown at
an early hour In the morning, going in car
riages the eight miles betwtcn the latter
place and the scene of the oeremoniea. Tbe
ride was one continued ovalio i. It was en
tirely through a farming country, with a
village or two on tbe way. At every home
stead the people bad gathered to await tbe
arrival of tbe president and tbe men, women
and children of each family greeted him
with cheers and waving of fl igs and hand
kerchiefs, afterward getting it to carriages,
wagons and other vehicles and joining the
procession. At Abington, a small town,
there was a beautiful triumpl al arch, and
here a brass band joined in l he welcome,
while the church bells were rung and tbe
people cheered. From this plai e to the farm
the road was lined with flagi one every
twenty feet and threaded its way among
beautiful country residences.
Arrival at -the Farm.
At 11 :S0 the procession reacted the Ten
liout farm, where a larpj t nt had been
erected for the exercises. As t be president
anl party entered tbe tent th whole audi-
rnce, numbering many thousands, arose as
tne man and gave them a thunderous wel
come, lasting several minutes. The exer
eises here were the reading of 'aper by Dr.
Turner, of Ilartsville; Rev. R M. Patterson,
of Philadelphia, and others. The papers
dealt with tbe founding of the 'Log" college
and its influence on Preabyterianistn, and
were listened to with deep intei est
The President Is Facetious.

and received with vociferous applause. He
aid the Presbyterian doctrine of persever
ance of tbe saints bad received an illustra
tion in the success of this celeta-atinn, and
persistent Presbyterianisiu wat well illus
trated in introducing bim to nuke a speech,
a thing he never at any tiine hsd -otnised
to do. One of the most emtstrrlng things a
man had to encounter was to a -tend a cele
bration and associate with gentlemen whose
pockets bulge,! out with ma tuscript ad
dresses when on was not simila -ly providud.
He then thanked the audience f jr their flatr
taring reception of himself and party; con
gratulated Presbytorianisni on it onward
march; urged that no backward step lie
taken, and closed by hoping t hat each ate
tendant of tbe exercises would carry away
pleasant memories of the day.
They Cheer and do to D nner.
Tbe president was frequently cheered dur

people present mode tbe welkin ring with
their cheers, which were kept up for at least
five mmutes. A hymn was s mg and the
party proceeded to dinner in a tent beauti
fully decorated with flowers. Tbe repast
was entirely informal

Winona, Minn, Sept & Thirty-five
million feet of lumber, shingles and lath,
two brick warehouses and a number of
tramways of the Laird Norton company
were swept away by fire yesterday after
noon. Charlie Grafton was knocked from a
lumber pile by a stream and fell thirty feet
to the ground, receiving Injuries from which
be will probably die. The beat from tbe
millions of feet of biasing lumber was ter
rific, and many of the fire men succumbed
and were dragged from the place. All tbe
residents for ten blocks moved out their
household goods, as it seemed that nothing
could save them.
A Raging Mass of Flame.
At 2 p. m. fire broke out in the Laird Nor
ton lumlier yard, back of the blacksmith
shop, 200 ' feet from the sawmill. The
drought bod dried up everything, and the
Sanies spread with great rapidity. Twenty
million feet of lumber were soon one roaring
in as of flama The whole fire department
ind reserves were soon at work, and aid was
tolraphed for to LiCrosse and St Paul.
Efforts were directed to saving the mill,
which was less than 150 feet from the fire.
A strong breeze from the west aided in sav
ing tbe saw And planing mills, but set tbe
flames tearing down through the vast piles
of lumber and toward the great lumber
yards and sawmills of the Empire and
Winona companies below.
Ootten I'nrier Controt
About 2o0 feet of vacant grou id separated
them, and here all tha force was concen
trated and succeeded in holding tbe flames
tack. Meantime the fire crossed Front
street, sweeping through the piles of lum
ber up to Second street There a big ice
house served as a check, and the fire was
stopped by pulling down a bouse. In' tbe
midst of the fire, with twenty blocks of dry
lumber a solid mass of flame, tbe city pump
ing works caught fire from tbe smokestack.
The roof burned and fell in, but the engin
eers stuck by the boilers and tbe fire was
subdued without shutting down the pump.
When tbe St Paul department arrived at 7
the fire was under control.
Estimate of the Loasea,
The Laird Norton company lose 22,000,000
feet of lumber, 6,000,000 lath and 7,000,000
shingles, valued at f 3j0,000; two brick ware
houses, f -JO.OOO, and $5,000 in tram way a Of
their entire stock of lumber only 2,500,000
feet of common dimension remain. The to
tal loss is H0,000. There is $170,000 insur
ance on tbe lumber, divided among twenty
five mutual and semi-mutual companies in
Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio and New York,
with $3,000 in the Pine Tree, of Winona, but
none in old line companies. There is $10,300
insurance on the brick warehouse. J. L.
Harris lost $1,000 on wool in the warehouse.
Had tbe Are passed to the Empire yard, just
below, the loss would have been millions.

Washington Citt, Sept fl The atten
tion of tbe commissioner of pensions has been
called to tbe following item published in The
Hart fort Conrant, edited by Senator Joseph
R. Hawley, bearing data of Sept 1, 1SSU:
To-night's Washington dispatch announces
that an original pension baa baen pi-anted to
Timothy Sbeehan. of Connecticut. The record
of Connecticut men in the war of the rebell
ion, Jnst issued from the ofttre of the adjutant
general of this state, contains the record of
but one soldier bearing this name. This record
Is aa follows: TweDty-sixth regiment. Com
pany K; Timothy Sheehan, f Groton; enlisted
Sept. 9, imt; mustered in Nov. 10. 1SU2; de
serted May 3i, 1.
His attention bas also been called to the fact
that tbe newspapers of tbe country have
given this item wide circulation, accom
panied by unfriendly comments. The com
missioner yesterday maJe the following
statement to a reporter of the United Press:
"Timothy Sbeehan, who received tbe pen
sion, was a private of tbe second class in
company C, United States engineers, of the
regular army. The records of the war de
partment on file in the claim show tbat be
was honorably discharged by reason of
rynovitis of tne right knee joint contracted
in the service and in the line of duty. Shee
han was properly pensioned for disability
incurred in the service and in the line of
duty, and the records show that' ho was a
regular army soldier, having enlisted in
1S76, and being discharged in 1S8!I, and tbat
be was about ten years of age at tlie time of
tbe close of tbe war. The pretty fiction
which has been tbe cause of so much adverse
criticism of the pension office is absolutely
without foundation in fact
