The Kind That Goes at Cleve
Jand Just Now.
HOT MUCH PEOSPECT OF HAEMONY,
The Antl-Canii.bell Men at the Ilrmo
rratie Convention Determined to Bent
llira Either in the Convention or at
the Election A Fight in Which Twenty
Shot Were Exchanged and ?io One
Hnrt Pistol Drawn at a Delegate
Meeting Thoniiand of Dollars Wagered
Against Campbell. '
Cleveland, July .15. Political excite
ment was at fever heat here last night.
and the animosity exhibited between the
Campbell and anti-Campbell men gave
promise of a decidedly lively time at the
convention today. The trouble began
with the arrival of Governor Campbell
and his strong contingents from every
quarter of the state and the almost simul
taneous appearance of the solid anti-
Campliell delegation from Hamilton
county, with a small army of sympatbiz
era, at their heels. From noon on bad'
tempered disctiKyions, disputes, and ouar
rels in the bar-rooms, in the hotel rotun
das, and at the street corners were of mo
Hacking Their Judgment with Caxh.
The anti-Cauipbeliites were not as nu
merous as their opponents, hut they were
hard to down, and they staked thousands
of dollars thpt come what may today they
will slaughter Campliell in November
next. Ike Hill, of Licking county, ex-sergeant-at-arms
of the house of repre
sentatives at Washington,, alone took a
score of these offerings, and If Governor
Campliell beads the poll at the election,
Hill, in common with scores of others.will
be richer by thousands of dollars. It was
only by accident that the bad blood failed
to culminate in wholesale murder fast
night. To offset the efforts of the ami
Campliell delegation from Hamilton coun
ty, a big crowd of Governor Campbell's
supjiorters arrived in town during the
afternoon and entered upon missionary
work without delay.
They followed Nolan Aronnti.
Prominent among them wasl'eter N'olan
Vnown as "the gentleman prize fighter" of
Porkopolis. IVte had barely struck the
town befnn- he va flitting from hotel to
hotel and button-holing delegation after
delegation. Xnian wound up his work
kst night at tiie Weddell house. Just as
he was leaving that hotel, he encount
ered on the pavement two Xeal delegates
from Ciuciunati, '-Colonel-' Hilly Patter
sou, and his brother, known as '-Cheeky
Jim" Patterson. Hot h men had tieen fol
lowing Nolan arnnud. during the after
noon, and the trio had indulged in nu
Had a "Little Difficulty."
When Nolan emerged from the rotunda
of the Weddell he was accitd by the
"colonel" with an opprobrious epithet.
There was a running fire of hot words,
which ended by Nolan lettingout his right
fair in the face of his opponent. The latter
went to ground, but like a flash he had
drawn his revolver and was discharging
bullet after bullet into the darkness. His
brother-followed suit, so did Nolan, and o
did a half dozen of the hundred spectators
who rushed between the men. Altogether
over a score of shots were fired, and that
one and all got wide of the mark can ou!y
be regarded iu the light of a providential
Took a Roll in the Cutter.
Before, however, Billy Patterson had
emptied his revolver he struggled to his
feet and dealt tbe butt of the weapon full
on Nolan's forehead. The two men
clinched and went into the putter, and
Jimmy Patterson and a would-be peace
maker went atop of them. By this time
the onlookers who scattered at the first
shot had returned and a crowd of over a
thousand surrounded the combatants.
The latter, their heads and faces badly
contused and bleeding freely, were finally
separated and led away.
CAMPBELL'S OPPONENTS RESOLVE.
They Declare His Nomination Means Over
"Anybody and anything to teat Camp
bell" was the cry of the governor's oppo
nents last night. At a late hour they
packed the big. club room of the Wed
dell, and speeches denouncing the gov
ernor in the most venomous phraseology
were cheered to the echo. There were
Kline men and Neal men, and men who
lad no choice, except that they would not
lave Campliell. Resolutions declaring
that the nomination of the latter would
result in an overwhelming Bemocratic de
feat were adopted with a hurrah. Some
of the speakers declared that Hamilton
county, which was 7,'Hi Republican at
tbe last election, would increase its Re
publican majority to 20,K)0 or more.
Read the Iliot Act to Them.
Prior to this meeting another exciting
scene had occurred at the same hotel. At
intervals during the day delegai ions vis
ited the rooms of the general reception
committee in search of information as to
the hoar that the convention would ojieu,
and to procure the necessary tickets and
badges. In almost every instance they
were asked as to their preference and the
Campliellites were denied all facilities.
"When this was reported to State Chair
man Norton he proceeded to the local
headquarters, and read the riot act in
language that was anything but minced.
If, he said, there was any rejietitiou of the
objectionable action be would revoke the
authority of the committee to issue tickets
and place the state committee in full con
trol of every aeat in Music haiL This had
the intended effect.
Campbell Throws Down the Gauntlet.
While deploring the bad feeling that
has been manifested Governor Campbell,
in the bridal chamber of the Holleuden,
was taking things calmly and with ap
parent contentment of mind. He threw
down the gauntlet to his opponents upon
entering the hotel. While the majority of
the crowd cheered until they were hoarse,
tbe Hamilton and Cuyahoga county men,
who occupied a big section of the rotunda,
were conspicuous by their , silence.
Mounting a chair in response to calls for
a speech, Governor Campbell pointed his
index finger to tbe opposition corner and
said with emphasis: "I will make my
speech tomorrow afternoon." -
Campbell Confident of Success.
Last night in conversation he said that
not only would he be nominated on the
first ballot, but that he could afford to
give a hundred votes of his reserve strength
to his opponents in order that they might
be able td make a respectable showing. As
to the future after the convention, he was
perfectly willing to let that take care of
The Resolutions Committee
The -various district delegations met lest
night and chose their representatives oq
the various committees. An hour later
the committee on resolutions went into
secret session, in the mayor's office. The
silver plank n about the only bone of con
tention, although the two representatives
of the opposition will fight an indorsement
of Campbell's administration.
OPENING OF THE CONVENTION.
Chairman Norton's Opinion or McKinley
and His Bill Speculations.
When the convention met at 10 a. m. to
day every seat in the hall which will seat
5,000 was occupied, and there were stand
ing up in various parts of the chamber at
least 2,000 more. Of course there was
much confusion, but order was finally ob
tained, and thetemporary chairman, John
S. Norton, arose to make the opening
speech. He congratulated the convention
on the encouraging outlook for the Demo
cratic party, and predicted its triumph in
the coming election. He then took up
the McKinley bill, and devoted the
greater part of his remarks to
that measure, which he characterized
as a law no more worthy of honor than
the levy of the bandit and buccaneer.
"Personally Maj. McKinley is an honest
man," said Col. Norton, "but his measure
is a burglar without heart and without
mercy, who robs alike the defenseless
child, the strong man, and the helpless
woiuan. It is a monument of wrong
whose every stone is from the quarry of
oppression." He closed by introducing
Allen W. Thurman, the temporary chair
man, as the worthy son of an illustrious
Speculations on the Ticket.
It had been decided that the convention
was to hold two sessions, so that the first
was merely for preliminary organization,
a matter that was disposed of with some
littlefriction;during the recess the hot dis
cussions which were begun yesterday were
continued in hotel lobbies and elsewhere,
and t he most discussed question in many
knots of delegates was who were to be
Campbell's running mates. That Camp
bell would lie nominated was a foregone
conclusion with all. Lieutenant Governor
Marquis will probably be renominated as
lieutenant governor, although he is not
making any campaign. For the remain
der of the six places on the ticket about
every other county has a candidate.
Trying to Bring Out a Dark Horse.
Congressman M. I). Hartcr, the Mans
field tree trader, came to the city Monday
night. A secret conference was held in h:s
apartments yesterday noon. It was anti
Campbell in sentiment, and those
present considered the advisability of en
tering Harter as a dark horse in the
guliernaton&l race. It was thought that
1 latter might tie able to draw away from
Campbell's support. The latest scheme
on foot is to get as many candidates as
possible in t:ie hope of preventing Camp
bell's nomination on the first ballot.
Thiirn.an Kcfuses to Interfere.
When AlUn C. Thurman told the com
pany assembled at his birthday banquet
last fall that he had bade farewell to
political lii'e he meant what he said.
Great pressure has been brought to ber.r
upon the "Old Roman" during the past
lew nays to induce Uni to come to Cleve
land and use his efforts toward promoting
peace among the anti-Campbellites. with
whom he has considerable influence. He
has, however, so far resisted this pressure.
and yesterday morning- it was given out
that under no circumstances would he de
part from his resolution by becoming even
a political peacemaker.
Some More Pistols Drawn.
There came near being a tragedv in the
meeting of the delegates from the Seventh
congressional district last night. The
trouble arose through Colonel Herbert,
of Erie coun'y, declaring his intention oi
supporting Campliell in the convention.
Mike Harrincron. of Toledo, took um
brage at the declaration of his colleague.
One word brought on another. aixl
finally Harrington let out and knocked
his oponent out of his chair. According
to eye-witnesses Herbert drew his sun
and one of his friends followed suit, but
tbe other m'iibers of the delegation rush
ed between tiie combatants and prevented
The committee on resolutions stands
