of the Timts. The doctor ia a lover of
horseflesh and in his joy over the possess

it at a high rate of speed through the

not have done any damage and he was al

The aim and intent of the Lodge fed

enough democratic districts in the south
to make the next house of represents

'it is an infamous and dangerous measure

necessity for Its passage exists has never
been proven . A few republican members
of congress only, however, take this view
of the proposition and goaded on bv a
partisan and shameless press, the bill
met with very little republican opposis

Carolina, ia one of the republican con

the injustice of the bilL On Saturday
last he made an able speech against the
measure, and clearly demonstrated that
elections in the south were as fairly con

and that no intimidation or bulldozing
was ever resorted to. He said:

a pass that under the rule of King Caucus

Washington Crrr, July 8. The debate
on the national election bill opened yester
day morning on the Tucker amendment,
offered Tuesday afternoon, and Gen. Joe
Wheeler, of Alabama, took the floor. The
general was not as excited or as exciting
as usual. On most occasions Gen. Wheeler
talks with his head, his arms, bis legs, his
long whiskers, and his coat-tails, but yes
terday he seemed to be repressed by some
strong emotion, and when the speaker's
gavel came down, he sank into bis seat
with a sigh of relief. Uncle John D. Tay
lor, of Ohio, whom one can hear at any
hour of the day when he is feeling good,
spoke in reply to Gen. Wheeler. He was
very exasperating, but he could not bring
the fiery little general to his feet.
Frank Glres In His Adhesion.
Frank of Missouri, who had been re
garded as doubtful on the bill, got up and
opposed the Tucker amendment, aud
Boutelle made a few remarks that the Re
publicans applauded. Then Rowell of IW

circuit courts to hold special sessions in or

which gave Hooker of Mississippi an op
portunity to again fire into the bill a

Rowell's Amendment Adopted.
One of the best five-minute efforts on
this amendment was that of Alf Taylor, of
Tennessee, who once riddled his Demo
cratic brother into the governorship of
that state. The great violinist is a mag
nificent talker and possesses a superb
voice. He was vociferously applauded on
the Republican side. Then came the vote
on the amendment, and it revealed the
whole strength of the house. Nearly all
the absentees were in their seats, includ
ing Frank Lawler, who came from Atlan

resulted on a division 146 yeas to 143

"We demand it as a right, and you have
no right torefUKe,"shouted Mills, Springer,
McMillin and a score of Democrats.
Reed Has the Last Word.
But the speaker had the last word, and
the yeas and nays were ordered as by
unanimous consent, and down came the
gsrel with the sound of a steam hammer.
The result of the vote was yeas, 150; nays,
144 so the amendment was adopted. This
brought matters to the culminating point.
Two o'clock had arrived, and the speaker
announced that the previous question was
ordered upon the passage of the bill and

Springer (having voted in the affirmative)
moved a reconsideration. Grosvenor of
Ohio made the point of order that this
was a dilatory motion, a point which was
sustained by the speaker. Springer ap
pealed, but the speaker declined to enter
tain the appeal. Springer protested that
this was the first time in the history of

The Bill's Prospects In the Senate.
More than one Republican senator ex
pressed the belief yesterday that the ma
jority in the senate would make no deter
mined effort to pass the election bill. The
Democratic opposition to this bill was so
strong that there was little doubt that ev
ery possible dilatory action would be taken
to accomplish its defeat. One of these ac
tions would, undoubtedly, be the pro
longation of the tariff debate, and the ex
pectation of many Republican senators is
that the itepnblican leaders will be able
to give to the Democrats in the senate the
assurance that no effort will be made to
pass the election bill at this session, and
that with this understanding an agree
ment will be reached to cut short the de
bate on the tariff bill so as to send it into
conference by the last of this month.

Washington City, July 8. The senate
yesterday passed a bill providing for the
delivery of land patents to the owners,
there being some 250,000 patents accumu
lated in the land office, and that fact being
made the basis of a money-making scheme
of land patent attorneys. Frye then made
a long statement of the provi dons of two
steamship subsidy bills, on being for
postal subsidies, and advocated their pass

for a vote to day, and after a short secret
session the senate adjourned.
The house defeated the Tt cker amend
ment to the election bill, requiring circuit
judges to pass upon applicat ions for su
pervisors, and also rejected an amend
ment striking out the provision for United
States troops to enforce the law where it
may be needed. There was a great deal of
disorder toward the last, especially when
the speaker declared several opposition
motions to be dilatory. At :J p. m. the
previous question .waa declared ordered,
the final resorts of the opposition
motions to recommit, etc were voted
down, the bill passed- 155 to 148 and the

Put Pattlson Up for Governor and Give
Quay a Blast A Campaign Incident in
Indianapolis, July 3. It is conceded on
all sides that Governor Hill scored a very
decided political point by hla visit to In
dianapolis, and tboee Democrats who
looked favorably upon his aspirations be
fore have been confirmed in their good
Impressions -while others who had found
ojections to him have been practically dis
armed of criticism. His speech was one
that appealed peculiarly to the Indiana
Democracy, and his manner of utterance
was so bold that hundreds who heard him
are comparing him with Hendricks. To
say that he is liked is to express the truth
mildly, for the majority who beawd him
are simply enthusiastic over him.
A Minority View of the Case.
The opinion is that Hill would make a
strong candidate for the presidency. A
small minority, however, deprecate the
entrance of Hill into the presidential
arena at this time, and say t hst, while he ia
able and no doubt worthy or any honor
the patry has to confer, it is conceded that
Cleveland is to be the nominee, and that
Hill's entrance into the race can only re
sult in an internecine quarnd in New
York, and hence jeopardiie Democratic
chances in 1893. Kxtremlsta go further,
and declare that Hill turned the ceremo
nies at the unveiling into a political cur
rent. The Gray-Hill Conferences.
The friends of Mrs. Hendricks say that
she was very much pleased with the gov
ernor and in presenting him with
one of Mr. Hendricks' canes, actually ex
pressed the hope that he would be suc
cessful in his presidential aspiration. The
conference between him and Gray is re
garded as especially significant, but the
letter's friends assert with great positive
ness that the subject of the political aspir
ations of neither was mentioned, and that
the conference related chiefly to the con
dition of the party throughout the coun
try. KEYSTONE STATE DEMOCRATS.
Pattison Nominated for Governor and
Hlark for Second Place,
Scuaxton, Pa., July 8. The state Dem
ocratic convention met here yesterday
with a full attendance of delegates and a
large crowd of spectators. The conven
tion was called to order at 10:110. Eckley
B. Coxe was made temporary chairman,
and the usual committees appointed and
then the convention took recess. Upon
reassembling the platform committee had
their report ready and it was unanimous
ly and enthusiastically adopted, especially
that part of it denouncing Senator Qaay
and eulogizing G rover Cleveland.
Points trom the Platform.
The declaration of principles approves
of ballot reform, tariff reform, and local
taxreform;demands that the state surplus
shall be invested in state and United
States bonds: warmly eulogises Grover
Cleveland, and denounces the present ad
ministration as vacillating and corrupt;
approves of bi-metallism; denounces Ke
publican gerrymanders, and what it char
acterizes as "Quayism;" generally roasts
the Republican congress, and especially
Speaker IUm1 and the new house rules;
charges upon the adrhiniHtratinn disregard
for civil service reform, failure to provide
for the veterans, ceaseless efforts to stir
up sectional strife, and general disregard
for the welfare of the people.
Harrity Permanent Chairman.
Ex-Post master Harrity was elected per
manent chairman, and then a lively time
was had over the report of the credentials
committee, but the matter was finally
satisfactorily arranged by giving the "reg
ulars" and "kickers" equal representation
on the floor. The trouble waa in Blair
county. Nominations were then in or
der, and it did not take long to put ex
Governor Pattison up for governor. The
convention went wild over his name. One
ballot was taken, and though Pattison
had but 'JIM and Wallace 133 it was moved
and carried that Pattison's nomination be
The Remainder ofthe Ticket.
Chauncey F. Black was nominated for
lieutenant governor, and William H.
Barclay for secretary of internal affairs.
Committees were appointed to ask the
successful and defeated candidates to
show themselves and in a few minutes
Pattison and others appeared. Pattison
made a brief speech of thanks and was
followed by one or two of the others, after
which three cheers were given for the
ticket and the couvention adjourned.
The Georgia Republican.
Atlanta, Ga,, July 3 The Republican
state executive committee yesterday urged
that congressional nominations be made,
but deem it inexpedient to nominate a
state ticket. They indorse the election
bill, and condemn southern Republicans
who oppose it.
MADE THINGS INTERESTING.
south Carolinians Know How to Hake
Columbia, S. C, July 3. At no meet
ing of the present state campaign has such
bad blood been displayed as Tuesday at
Winnslwrough, the home of Gen. Brat
ton, one of the candidates. Gen. Bratton
was accorded a respectful silence from the
crowd who listened to him. Gen. Earle's
speech was interrupted by yells and cries
of "Sit down," and "Let the man speak;"
"You can't change us; we are going to put
Tillman in," "Run him ont, boys." When
Capt. Tillman arose it was fully five min
utes before he could speak, so great was
the applause on one side and the hissing
on the other.
Tillman's Followers Take a Hand.
After speaking a short while he said
something that again put the crowd to
yelling, and all efforts to silence them
were in vain. Some one told him to alt
down. This produced the wildest excite
ment. A score of Tillman's followers
rushed on the stand and lifted Tillman
from the seat into which he had dropped
and carried him to the edge of the plat
form. They swore he should speak.
Pistols Hake Their Appearance.
At this point the attention of the audi
ence was called to the fact that twenty of
Tillman's supporters on the stand had
their hands on their pistols. At this an
nouncement there was the greatest con
fusion. The ladies fled from the meeting,
and an eyo-witaess reports 100 pistols in
sight at the tamo moment. A terrible
riot was momentarily expected, and a
single shot or blow would have brought it
on. The tension was very great until the
end of the mast heated meeting of the

married life was a continued round of
joyous contentment, but soon, to end.
- The Letter That Came.
A letter did the work. It was from a
woman claiming to be the wife of Hern
don, from whom he was not divorced. To
the grief and mortification of the wife of
two years Herndon admitted everything,
but pleaded his great love for her as an
excuse for his sin. Feeling tlint it was im
possible forliim to maintain his former
position in the confidence of the people of
Union Church, the facts concerning his
first marriage having all been made pub
lic, the miserable husband carried his wife
and babe to her father's home, and soon
afterward left Mississippi to lead a varied
and sometimes reckless life.
No. 8 Walls for Him.
(For several years he taught school in
Alabama and Missouri, and for a while
represented some prominent mercantile
firms as traveling agent.
A few months ago he succeeded in get
ting a divorce from his first wife in
Georgia and immediately wrote to parties
in Hazleburst concerning the whereabouts
of his second wife. On receiving informa
tion that she lived in llazleliurst, and had
never married, he at once determined to
visit her. On reaching Hazlehnrst he in
quired the way to her home, and turned
his steps thither.
All's Well That Ends Well.
The wife of seventeen years ago,, who
had not seen or heard from him during the
whole time, saw him as he was approach
ing. Turning to her daughter, a bright
girl of 17 summers, she exclaimed: "Yon
der comes your father," and fainted.
After a brief conversation with his wife
and child, he walked over to the clerk's
office, procured a license and the services
of Rev. W. C. Caldwell, and they were the
second time united in matrimonial bonds,
the meeting, reconciliation, and marriage
all occurring the same evening.

Want Pay for Th'rlr Striko.
CnicAoo, July a A committee of three
representing the freight switchmen of the
recent strike, called on General Superin
tendent Sullivan, of the Illinois Central
railway, yesterday morning to ask for
the payment of the regular wages to the
men for the four days and seven hours
they were out on strike. Mr. Sullivan re
plied that there was no principle of equi
ty by which they could make such a de
mand, and that the sum would not will
ingly be paid. He said it was highway
robbery pure and simple, and would ouly
be paid on written demand, as the alter

That Great Petition a Fraud.
London, July 3. The parliamentary
committee lojvliose consideration the
monster petition of the publicans in favor
of compensation was reffrred, has advised
the house of commons to decline to re
ceive it. The committee carefully ex
amined the petition aud finds many objec
tions to its reception. The chief of these,
however, are the olscenity of its phraseol
ogy and the palpable evidence of fraud in
respect to the signatures attached, a large
percentage of which is found by the com
mittee to be fictitious.
