CctYvftrs, O., June IT. It w ten min

state convention was called to onit-r by L.
VT. King, Col. Conger bein abent. Tie
delegates occupied the first floor of tLe
opera house, the alternates were tuael
in the balcony, while the gallery was
civen up to the public and the rear of the
Mace to distincui-heil vis-it or. ' The boxes
were mostly filled with lalies. The dec

irs. A life like picture of XI a j. MeKir.uy

hundred people, more than the hot:- h..l
ever held before, faced the sta'e w'u-a the
tavel fell and as many wore clamored
fnitlessly on the outside for admittance.
Important Campaign Opened.
With the rap of the gavel which called
this convention to order,- the most critical
csmpaicn in the history of the state was
ciened by a very euthusiastic convention.
The importance of the result of this cam
paign, crt or.'.y to the state, but to the na
tion, is fully realized by the typical -Ohio

known to modern politics will doubtless

THE CONTESTSOF THE FACTIONS.
Sherman Not Akinc That His Name Be
Pressed for Anrthinc.
It ia understood that the Foraker men
want Sherman to step aside aad give a
routi-tr man a chance in the United .states
Fenate, and the question is mixed up with
the selection of permanent chairmun. The
t-herman men wantel him selected, but
the Foraker raen proposed as a compro
mise the name of Gen. A. S. Bush nell, who
ha-teered clear of all factions. Sherman
Las given it out that he does not seek nor
want any demonstration in his behalf, or
any committal of the convention to hiru
for the senate. He is onJy a candidate in
fact on the voluntary tender of the otEce
to him after the election of the next gen
eral assembly, which he desires to aid ia
making Republican only as far as any
t'ther good citizen who is a Republican of
vin for Temporary Chairman.
This smoothed the way for harmony
and when King unnotniced Hon. R.
XL Nevin as temporary chairman the.e
was a shout of approval that made the
roof crack. In Lis speech, Nevin came
out strong fot the McKinley bill, and tne
convention cheered. He indorsed Presi
dent Hasrinon- and Speaker Reed, and then
referred to McKinley in flattering tern
that brought another rotud of applause,
that lasted for some minutes. He said it
was the "Old Roman" who had said that
an Ohio Democrat could not grow to be
over four feet tall before some faction
began putting him down.
Not True of Ilepubliran.
Continuing, he said: ' I thank God
this is not true of the Republican party ia
in Ohio. We are proud of our Shermaa
cheers, of our Foster cheers, of our
..IcKinley, of our Feiraker cheer, and
would like to see them all grow four
times four feet tall, if possible; and they
may rest assured that no matter how tall
they have grown and they have grown
very tall there is plenty of room left ia
the Republican party for them to grow ia
Hill, for our party is as high as patriot
ism aad as broad as humanity. "
Committee Appointed. .
At the conclusion of the spetch the
rheering for Harrison was deafening, but
as soon as it had exhausted itself the name
tf Sliertunn brought forth still more deaf
ening applause. The temporary organiza
tion was then oompletexh Committees
were npjiointed on creAlentials, resolutions,
iermane-nt organization, etc., and the
convention adjourned for the day to give
the committees time to complete their
work and get tlieir reports ready.
PROGRESS OF THE COMMITTEES.
Chairman Selected The Itnanre Ques
tion Ileeeption to the Leader.
The permanent organization committee
was not long selecting a ciitdrman for the
convention. The Sherman men on the
committee made a strong fight for their
man, but the comptosune candidate waa
chosen and Gen. Bashnal will preside to
day. The resolution oommittee strode
two snags a soon as it met. The first
was the finance question. Svme favored a
plank on tfee line of Sherman's views,
while others wanted a mild free silver
declaration. The other sna was t ie rec
iprocity question, there being a stro g op
position to indorsing that policy. A sn!s
committee was given charge of the whole
Labor Leader on Hand.
A good deal of speculation has been cre
ated by the arrival of Hugh Cavanugh,
worthy foreman of the Knights of labor,
and W. Hayes, of Philadelphia, a me mber
of the executive board. Both flitted around
the lobbies of the hotels, and at times con
versed with delegates that wore the iron
badge. The general impression is that
their visit has relation to the threats of a
boycott by the order on XIcKinley that
have been made growing out of the
troubles in the government printii:g of
fice at Washington City. Both Hayes and
his colleague, however, aver that they have
n interest or identification with the pres
ent political situation.
McKinley and Foraker.
One thousand men marched to the- sta
tion yesterday morning to receive Maj.
Mc Kinley. The sun was red-hot, bt t so
was the enthusiasm, and the vree.thtr
made no diflereuc-e to the shouting
troug. Thousands of people packed the
sidewalks alone the line of march and
J c:.-eml the candidate apparent cemtini ous-
iy. it was a great popuiar ovation. Mtiit
l.r s tats ex-curred upon the arrival of ex
tloveraer Foraker later. McKinley de
clined to speak, but Foraker' made a short
a Ures n;ma arrival at the Neil lu use.
AH;l:ngto the prevalent topic he said
that he had no personal motives to grind
or to serve. All he wanted was the .ol
will of his party and of his fellow -met.. If
he had the good will, then other peip'e
could have everything else. XIaj. McKin

As soon as Jake began catching it hot

Slavin was away ahead. He knocked
Jake dowa f ur times in the third rounds

Chicago, June 17. -Xly mother can't
stand it if she hears I am shot V This was
the exclamation of William Langosch. a
west side tough, who was mortally
woumled in Henry Schroeder's saloon, at
72 North Desplaines street, yesterday after
noon, while attempting to rob W. H. Ho
liday, of 140 West Lake street. Langosch
h:ul just returned from Joliet. where he
had served a term of imprisonment. Half
an hour after he arrived in Chicago he
met an old-time associate namenl Charles
Henning. The two were out of funds, and
decided to avail themselves of the first
chance to secure some cash.
Thou ght They Had a Soft nap.
After e-iting a numlier of saloons with
out success they found what they thought
an easy prey in XIr. Halliday, who stepped
into Schroeder's place to get change for a
$50 bill. Halliday was counting over the
small bills which he had got from Henry
Sc-hroeder, the proprietor, who stood be
hind the bar. The moment the eyes of
the two desperate mm lighted oa the
money they sprang on Halliday like tigers
and hurled him to the floor. Quick as a
fiah the saloon keeper se ized a billiard
cue and dealt several lively blows on the
back of Laagosch's head The latter
turned fiercely on Schroeder and sent him
f.yini; ataiast the bar with a swinging
thump ia the ear.
A Ken-.inine Reinforcement.
Up to this joint Halliday. who is a pow
erful man. held on to the cash, dt spite the
efforts of the two toughs to wrest it from
him. I-cft single-handed with Heanirg
he would have easily got rid of him. but
Lanirosch jumped at him wLen he had
knocked Schroeder down. At this stage
XIrs. Schroeder arrived on the setae. She
screamed when she saw her husband on
the floor with blo.nl flowing from his ear.
She quickly recovered Ler-elf, however,
and dashed wate r in her husband's face.
This revived the old man.

He joined his wife in aa attack on Hen

when the waon reached within a block
of his home, at I'to Samuel street, he
insisted on getting out and walking
into hi mother's hovel. When he went
inside he pulled out a cigar and tried to
