CAMPBELL WINS ON FIEST BALLOT.

' Call of the Convention to State III
.' Position Principal Point of the Plat
form, and Kxtrart from Some of the
fcpeerhe Detail of the Proceeding
Cleveland, July If,. On the first bal
lot, n expected, Governor Campbell was
rennminnterl by the state Democratic con
vention, and the unexpected hapjeii'd,
for In spite of all prediction and appear
ances the convention, while not harmon
ious, (tot through its wort with little
more disorder t lian falls to the lot of con
vent ions frequently. After Norton had
introduced the temporary chairman, Al
len W Thurman, that gentleman anwe
and was escorted to the chair. Ho
thanked the convention for the compli
ment bestowed him, unci congratu
lated the llemocrary upon its prosjiects.
He praised the administration of ex
President Cleveland, and taxed the lat
congress wit h extravagance.
The "llillion Kollnr onCre."
Upon this sul ject he said that the people
would emphatically condemn all the work,
of that congress next fall "when they will
abow that they do not lielieve a country
can 1 made rich by excessively taxing
itself; when they will, in thunder tones,
denounce the wanton extravagance and
wastefulness of a party which, in two
short years, by profligate expenditure,
completely wied out the tremendous sur
plus of 140,(ki,oiio wLich had accumulated
tinder the honest, economical. Democratic
administration of Urover Cleveland;
when they will reject the party which,
through the last congress, appropriated
for government expenditures the tremen
dous sum of tl.HM),(lOo,(i'H an expeuditu.e
of HT for every man, woman, and child in
the United Suites."
Regarding the Sub-Treasury Scheme.
"I most earnest ly liexeech the farmers,
whose interests are identically the same
as my own. to follow this course. Tne
wild schemes 'of government loaning
money on warehouse certificates, or upon
lauds, the t a!. i tig possession of the rail
ways and telegraphs by the government,
the internal improvements that are de
manded, and a dozen other minor issues
that all lead, not only to greater taxation,
but to the rankest kind of Socialism, 1
say to them, put to one side and stick to
the tariff issue until you get what is due
you. Why, upon this isue of
taxation, which is the most important of
all, should farmers scatter and waste
their strength? Why should they not ally
themselves wit h that strong political or
ganization, the Democratic party, that has
been fighting for th m this battle against
unjust ami unfair taxation:'"
Letilonil for Permanent Chairman.
The remainder of the speech was de
voted to denunciation of the McKiniey
bill, and when Thurmau had concluded
the organization committee reported. The
report named Frank 1-blond, cf .Mercer
county, for permanent chairm.m, and he
was accepted with a hurrah. His speech
was brief. After thanking the conven
tion for the honor conferred upon hiai. he
proceeded on t he same lines as Thurman
and paid his respects to the last congress
and the McKiniey bill. The convention
then adopted the rooster as the device for
the head of the ticket, the new ballot law
requiring some device. The. Republican
ticket Will lie headed with an eagle.J
Settling a Contest.
There was a contest from Hamilton
county, and this matter brought ou an
acrimonious controversy Ktweeii the
Campbell and nuti-Cauipliell men from
that county. The report of the creden
tials committee was adopted stating the
"regular" delegates, Neal, of P.utler, shut
ting off ihe row with the remark that the
convention had more important business
on hand than settling the petty Uurrel.-
of Hamilton county. The committee on
rules made its report and it was adopted,
and the committee on rf solutions was an
nounced as ready to report. Chairman
Findley cume forward with the document
and as soon as the applause subsided pro
ceeded to read t he same.
DECLARATION CF PRINCIPLES.
Campbell linlorel. Tai l IT for Revenue
Only and 1'rce Silver.
The platform heartily indorses the hon
esty and economy of the administration
of Governor James E. Campbell, and com
mends the Sixty-ninth general assembly
for its business qualifications, economy
and reform, and esieciully for having pro
vided for a secret ballot by which every
voter in Ohio can cast his ballot in secret
as he desires and have his vote counted as
cast, and invites attention to the fact that
the Republicans opposed the law. The
acts of the legislature are then indorsed,
and it is declared that "we believe in a
tariff levied for the sole purpose of pro
'ducing a revenue sufficient to defray the
legitimate expenses of the government,
tiraduuted liiriiinr Tax Favored.
"We favor a graded income tax.
We demand the reinstatement of the con
Btitutional standard of both gold and sil
ver, wit h the equal right of each to free
and unlimited coinage. We denounce the
Republican billion-dollar congress, w hit b
by extravagant expenditures, exhausted a
surplus in the national treasury left there
by a Democratic administration aud cre
ated a deficit; which substituted despotic
rule for free .discussion in the house of
representatives; and we congratulate the
people on the defeat of the odious force
bill demanded by a Republican president
and championed by the Republican party
for the purpose of perpetuating its rule Dy
perverting the constitutional powers cf
the government, destroying free elections
and placing the ballot-box in the bands of
A to the Liquor yuelition.
" "We believe that the personal rights of
the individual should . be curtailed only
when it is essential to the maintenance of
the peace, good order aud welfare of the
community. We favor closer commercial
relations with our Canadian neighbors,
and the removal of the embarrassing and
' annoying restrictions which only vex onr
people without yielding any substantial
revenue to the government. We favor
liberal and just pensions to deserving and
disabled soldiers and sailors who fought
for the maintenance of the government.
and like pensions to their widows and
Persecution of the Jews.
"The persecution of tne Jewish people
by the Russian government justly de
serves and receives our unqualified cen
stire We extend to them our sincere
sympathies, and believe that this govern
ment, in connection with the enlightened
governments of Europe disposed to unite
wit h us, should take proper steps to alle
viate the wrongs thus inflicted on this
long suffering aud oppressed people."
Minority Report on Silver.
A minority report was presented which
recomnieude.l the adoption "of the fol
lowing resolution as a substitute for the
plank in t lie platform on the free and un
limited coinage of silver: We believe in
honest money, the coinage of gold and sil
ver and circulating medium convertible
into such uoney without loss; and we
appose all legislation which tends to drive
either gold or silver out of circulation;
ad we believe in maintaining the coin
age of both metals on a parity. We also
ecommenil that the "resolution declaring
!or a graduated tax on incomes be strick
en from the platform." This report was
r-j ected 2M-i to 3tfi,' and the platform
adopted as read.
NOMINATION OF CANDIDATES.
Campbell Choiten by an Overwhelming
Majority Cincinnati HIhm-h.
This brought the convention to the nom
ination of candidates Follett, of Cincin
nati, put Lawrence T. Nenl up with a
speech of vigor aud fire. G. D. Dodge, of
Cleveland, named Virgil P. Kline, and
amidst resounding cheer Michael Ryan,
of Cincinnati, nominated Campbell. It
was almost impossible to obtain order
enough after Camplieil was named to pro
feed to ballot, so enthusiastic were the
delegates, but the ballot was finally taken
and resulted: Campliell, 5o8 7-16; Neal,
1:44 9-H; Kline, iWi; Johnson, 1.
Refused to Make It I'nanimous.
When the result of the ballot was an
nounced a delegate from Cuyahoga, in tie
half of Kline, moved to make it unani
mous. The Hamilton county boys yelled
"Xo" with all the strength of their lungs.
Six hundred delegates and 5,000 spectators
got back at them with hoots, yells, shrieks,
cat-calls, rebel warwhoops a combination
of unearthly noises horrible enough.tosend
a stone statue into hysterics. The scene was
repeated when the chairman put the ques
tion and the antis voted "Xo," and again a
third time when their own choice, Larry
Xeal. mounted a chair and moved the ap
pointment of a committee to "escort the
next governor of Ohio to the hall." The
Cincinnati men yelled so viciously at this
point that there were cries from hundreds
of throats. "I'utthem all out," and the
delegation yelled back, "Come and try it."
The iiveriir Comes Forward.
A committee was appointed to escort
Campbell to the platform, and soon ap
peared with the nominee, when a storm of
applause greeted Lim. He thanked the
convention for the nomination, lauded
the Ohio Democracy for what they had
done while in power, and then proceeds
to denounce the Republican congress. He
paid a high tribute to his opponent, but
mi; I his candidacy stood for a pernicious
system in t ha interests of monopoly and
fur ci ntra'i.ation of wealth, as well as
centralization of power, the first of which
was the worst.
Neal Snub the Convention.
TOien the -rovernor concluded ex Con
gressman John L. Vance submitted a reso
lution asking Hon. L. T. Xeal to appear
before the convention and tell jus t
w here he stood as a Democrat in relation
toth? gubernatorial nomination. Some
of the delegates appeared to takethe prop
ortion as a joke, bnt it was nevertheless
adopted without a dissenting vote, and the
chair appointed as such committee Messrs.
Follett, Dodge and Marshall. The cota
mit tee met Xeal at his quarters and an
nounced to him the desire of the conven
tion. Xeal promptly and emphatically re
plied that he not only would not tell
where he stood r.s a Democrat, but he
would not appear liefore the convention.
The l ull Ticket Nominated.
The convention then proceeded to nomi
nate the remainder of the ticket, and as
selected the names are as follows: For
governor, James E. Campbell; lieutenunt
governor, W. V. Marquis; auditor of
state, Hon T. E. I'eckinbaugh, of Wayne

DELUTHERED' THE RED SKINS.
The Corralled Sheriff Posite Escape by
Flagstaff, a. T., July 10. All Tues
day night and part of yesterday the resi
dents of this place waited with anxiety
for the results of the meeting of the party
which left here Tuesday night to rescue
Sheriff Francis' party from the Indians.

Henri Watteraon Ha Nerre.
Louisville, July 16. In The Courier
Journal Henri Watterson thus answers a
recent Washington letter in the New York
Herald: Governor Hill is not a likelihood
for the nomination. For any hope for
that he must show himself a better man
than the country thus far believes him to
be. Governor Hill knows as little of pub
lic affairs and men as Cleveland did on
comiug to the presidency, but is said to
be a bright man. In that case be may
yet profit in time by the kindly, though
unpleasant counsel given him.
Run Down by a Train.
Df.s Moines, la., July 16. An unknown
man was run over and killed on the Rock
Island track in East Dea Moines some
time Tuesday night. His body was found

mangled. In a small memorandum book

Kelly, 3321 Laurel street, Chicago." He
appeared to be about 80 years old.
DDIES LOCKED UP.
Secretary Foster Complains ot
THE POCKET DL'JE SAVINGS' BANK.
It I filling the Mint a Heap of Trouble
by Gobbling All the Ten-Cent Pieces
The Secretary H nine If Indulges in One
and Lose Abot t 4 Advertising for
Rid to Carry Inro t fleet the New Mall
Washington-, July 16. Having fully
disposed of Powdei ly and the Knights of
Labor, Secretary Foster now has other
topics to discuss at the regular morning
symposium with the newspaper men.
Yesterday it was the new dime savings
bank, which it is estimated is absorbing
about 300,000 dimes per day, or very nearly
half the capacity of all the mints. Mr.
Foster is worried ebout these little banks,
not because they absorb the coinage, but
because in the very near future, when a
couple of millions of them release fifty
dimes each, there i- likely to be as much
of a plethora of imes as there is now a
Good Thing for the Inventor.
Paid the secretary: "The man who got
up the dime savings bank will make more
money than the man who invented the air
brake. We can co n nt Philadelphia. Car
son, and Xew Orle ins about ti00,u00 diires
a day. Even thet we have to run night
and day. Well, w e have been at it since
July 1, and there is not the slightest cessa
tion in the demand. There will
not )e until -he new craze dies
out. You can im igine how much those
feilows are going to make out of their
little banks: Eacl bank holds fifty dimes
and they are absorbing the dimes at tt e
rate of MuO.dJO a dav. at least. That mears
fiO.OW banks at work, and probably 00,1X0
new banks lieing started. I don't know
what the royalty is on these banks, but ij
naiut -be 5 cents ei.ch. The man is clear
ing probably not less than 1,000 a day
oa liia wretcv.ed little invention."
The Seeretarj "s Sad Kxperienre.
Why do you call it wretched, Mr. Sec
retary?'' "There are many reasons. 111 name one
of them," and the secretary laughed long
and loud. "Ibouf.Lt one of the things
myself and liegan to stick dimes into it
just to see how lo ig it would take to ac
cumulate .5. We.l. by last Saturday I
had. according to the gauge, '4.2o in -it,
and by Jove, that afternoon 1 lost the
whole business pulled it out of thepocket
with my handkerc liief. 1 suppose."
That was even a worse bank failure
than the Keystone
THE NEW OCHAN MAIL SERVICE.
Some of the Line i'ropasdd To l!e Started
Washington, July 1. The formal no
tice of the postoffii-e department inviting
proposals for ocea 1 mail lettings was is
sued yesterday. I: cites the act of March
3, iS'.d, aud is unt.sually explicit because
the act of congress requires the advertis
ing of the route, -vhich must tie set forth
iu full, the time -when the contract shall
be made, the dura' ion of the same, the size
of the steamers to be used, the number of
trips each year and times of sailing, and
the time when service shall commence.
The law requires the insertion of the ad
vertisement in at east two daily newspa
pers in fourteen of the principal cities, and
strangely enough no appropriation has
been made to pay for the advertisement.
Four New Transatlantic Lines.
Transatlantic lines are projected to
Liverpool from Xew York and Boston,
and to Souttimp-.on or Plymouth, and to
Antwerp from w York. Also from
Baltimore to Bremer.. Bids are also in
vited for service from Xew York and
Philadelphia to Bnenos Ayres, Argentine
Republic, and to Cruguay. A great deal
of attention has been paid to the South
American trade, i.nd bids are invited for
service from Xew York, taking the mails
at Xewport X'ews or Xorfolk. Similar
service to II:o is asked for from Xew Or
leans, Galveston, and Port Tampa, which
will start from Mobile. Four other lines
to South American and West Indian
ports are pre pose. 1 and quicker service to
points already ret ched.
Calls for More New Ships.
From the conferences that have takeu
place there seems to be good reason to ex
pect that rertain service will be put on
speedily. This new service, in connection
with the enlargei lent of the old, will re
quire the building of a number of ships,
probably not les than five of the first
Cass, seventeen cf the second class, five
of the third class, and four of the fourth
class, with an aggregate tonnage of 15.
0'M tons, and at a probable cost of from
fc.KJ, 00V, 011 to 30,' KlO.OOO. It is hoped that
the other lines projected will invite still
further is vest me jt of capital.

Call On the National Banks.
Washington, July 16. Comptroller
Lacey has made a call for a report on the
condition of the national banks at the
close of business Thursday, July 9.
It rooksli ire's Political Prediction.
Martinsville, Ind., July 10. Congress
man Brookshire, of the Eighth district,
thinks that the next speaker of the na
tional house of representatives will be
Congressman Byuum, of Indiana. In re
lation to the presidential campaign he
predicts the nom. nation of Harrison and
Cleveland. For the second place on the
Democratic ticket he thinks ex-Governor
Gray, of Indirna, a most available man,
but he says that in the event of the re-election
of Governor Campbell in Ohio, and
Governor Boies in Iowa they would both
be strong candidates for the place.
Filed the Official Report.
Xew York, July 16. Warden Brown,
of Sing Sing prison, has filed the official
report on the execution by electricity of
the four murder rs at that prison. It is
signed by all the professional witnesses,
and says, what has already been stated
in these dispatches, that -the execution
was painless in each case, and proved that
the method is s iperior in every way to
any ever before cevised.
