by the Client and Other Ignatin Don
nelly. Boomerang Measure.
Des Moises, la., July 27. Governor
Boies' letter accepting the Democratic
nomination has been given to the press.
He approves the platform and enlarges
thereon, dwelling at some length on the
questions of prohibition and the tariff. He
amends the temperance plank to make it
provide for local option, and maintains
that any attempt to enforce the present
law in communities where public senti
ment is opposed, would be the suppression
of popular government and the substitu
tion of a system that has its counterparts
in the most despotic governments.
The Question of Silver.
Referring to silver he says; "The De
mocracy of Iowa demand that silver shall
be restored to its ancient estate under the
laws of the nation. If, on account of
changed conditions, as some believe, the
effect of this will lie to reduce the metallic
currency of the couutry to a silver stand
ard alone, or otherwi injure the bnsines
Interests of the country, the people can
lie safely trusted to devise some means of
maintaining the two metals in the relative
positions assigned them by the founders
of our government.'
Opinion, on the Tariff.
In discussing the tariff the governor
says: "The great industry of Iowa is and
must continue to lie agriculture, upon t a
successful prosecution of which all the
business in the state is largely dependent
In no possible manner can this industry
be benefited by our present tariff laws.
For many years our people have been un
necessarily subjected to a system of legal
ized extortion that has restricted our
markets and diminished the prices of al
most everything we sell and increased the
cost of very much that we buy.
Calls It a ftreat Wrong.
"We have submitted to this wrong until
in seasons of ordinary plenty the products
of the soil, although bouutiful lyondany
other country of the fclobe, are by reasons
of their depressed market value insuf
ficient to fairly compensate the farmer for
his labor in producing them. With united
voice the great west is now thundering in
the ears of tbose who have preyed upon
her resources so long lier'demand for re
lief." 'i CLEVELAND AT SANDWICH.
What was Said at the Ranquet tiiven
Him tiy t ape ( ml People.
Sandwich, Mass., July 27. The ban
quet and reception by Cape Cod people to
ex-President Clevelaud was a grand suc
cess, the principal speakers leing Mr.
Cleveland, Governor Russell and Chas.
Francis Adams. Mr. Cleveland's speech
contained some humorous comments on
the fact that he was living in a strong
Republican region, and added: "Some
things we can certainly do safely and
properly. We can tie tolerent of one an
other. We can constantly test onr politi
cal beliefs by the light of patriotism, good
citizenship, and true Americanism, and
we can lie brave enough and honest
enongh to follow where they lead. We
shall thus elevate our political efforts aid
find incentives to activity in a determina
tion to aid in making our couutry as great
as it ought to be and in securing to our
selves and our fellow-eountrymeu the
happiness and prosperity due to all of us
tinder a free government by the jieople.
What Adam, and Choate Think.
Charles Francis Adams said: "Three
great questions that have loomed up since
the war are now prominent in all minds
protection, pensions, and currency. If
t he views of public policy and the course
in regard to the se great questions enunci
ated and laid down in state papers by to
day's guest are the principles of the Dene
cratic party, then, gentlemen, I am a
President Charles F. Choate. of the Old
Colony railraod, raised a hearty applause
by saying: 'I can say as a businessman
that the silver letter of ex-I'resident Cleve
land is the most important service to the
business community that could possibly
have been rendered. I can conceive of no
greater mischief ' possible to the business
of the country than free silver coinage."
They Cheered Pre.ident Harrison.
There were a dozen more speakers.
Among them was Harvey X. Collison, of
Boston, who was introduced as president
of the Young Men's Democratic club of
Massachusetts.. uud emphasized the non
partisan character of the occasion by say
ing he would be proud to join in a tribute
to any Republican who had done faithful
service. He then called for three chets
for President Harrison, which were heart
ily given, Mr. Cleveland rising and wav
ing his handkerchief.
Not a Partisan Gat hering.
That the gathering was a spontaneous
manifestation of the good-will of the peo
ple for their distinguished fellow-citizen
there can be no doubt. The Republican
subscribers to the dinner were twice as
many as the Democratic, probably be
cause there are only half a many Demo
crats as. Republicans on the cape. Mrs.
Cleveland was not present owing to una
BOOMERANG FOR THE ALLIANCE.
A Minnesota Law That Sieem. to lie lteath
on That Corner.
ST. Paul, Minn., July 27. The farmers
in Minnesota will not likely corner the
wheat market, after all. The discovery has
been made that a constitutional amend
ment makes t he proposed action of Alli
ance men under the Muller circular a
criminal conspiracy. The strange thing
about the whole matter is the fact that the
measure was introduced in the winter of
18S7 by Ignatius Donnelly, who is now
president of the Minnesota Alliance. It
passed both houses of the legislature, was
almost unanimously adopted by a vote of
the people in the fall of 1HX, and is now
section 35 of the constitution.
The Combine Is Probably OH".
It reads: "Any combination of persons,
either as individuals, or as members, -r
officers of any corporation, to monopolize
the markets for food products in tiiis
state, or to interfere. with or restrict tte
freedom of such markets, is hereby de
clared to bo a criminal conspiracy, a"d
shall be punished in such manner as the
ooC fired lirectly toward where Sarah
McGowaa, Uexrge Weitzel, and An pie
Kinney were sitting. Miss McGowan
creamed and fell, and Weitzel put his
bands to his face and sank down. The
second girl was not hurt. Miss McGowan
lived twenty minutes. Weitzel is dread
fully mangled about the face, and may
lose both eyes. Fahey gave himself up.
He is distracted.
Steeple Struck by Lightning.
Greenville, Pa., July 27. During a
heavy thunder storm here yesterday
morning the tall steeple of the United
Presbyterian church was demolished by

PERHAPS 'TWAS JONAH'S WHALE.
A Story That Illustrate tha Hardihood
of a Sea Captain.
Tacoma, Wash., July 7. The overdue
bark Guy C. Goss, with a cargo of f4V,C00
worth of tea from Yokohama, has arrived.
Several exciting events happened during
her forty-four days' of tempestuous voy
age, one of which is not known to have a
parallel since the days of Jonah. Captaia
W. M. Mallette tells the following story,
and vouches for its truth: "One of the
Japanese sailors, knowu as Tom Kiski
asti, fell overboard during a gale, was
taken into a whale's mouth, and lives to
tell the story. It happened when the Goss
was fifteen days out and a terrible gale
was blowing. Tom . had climlied to tue
topmast to reef sail, when he lost his hold
and fell into the foaming sea. The life
boat was put out, but no traces of the
unfortunate sailor could be found.
Now, Then, Agnostic., How'. This?
Suddenly a whale appeared just where
he was seen to fall. His fate was then
known, and the boat returned; but a mira
cle saved him. The whale was seen to be
writhing in ajjony. All at once there was
a commotion, aud the next moment the
sailor was cast on the deck, to the joy of
his companions and his own salvation.
With careful nursing he was brought to
consciousness, and is now as well as ever.
The experience, he says, was most terrible.
The crushing in the whale's jaw nearly
killed him. The sailor wore an oil suit,
which he had covered with kerosene oil,
and it is supposed this disagreed with the
whale and saved his life. He thinks the
whale tried to swallow him, and was una
ble to do so.
COLUMBUS VERY MUCH BURIED.
His Hones Claimed by Both San Domingo
Washington, July 27. The press of
San Domingo is urging a convention of
the representatives of all the historical
societies in the world to be held in that
city in order to discuss and settle diGnite
ly the vexed ouestion of the plate where
rest the earthly remains of Christopher
Columbus. Havana claims to have the
only genuine bones, and this is indignant
ly denied by the Dominicans, the contest
raging in the newspapers with as much
vehemence as the dispute as to the supe
riority of two western towns. It is
thought that, if a representative body of
men of that kind could be gathered there
on the scene of the acts in dispute the
matter mignt be settled forever.
Decline to Fan Judgment.
The commissioner of the Latin-American
department recently visited the ca
thedral in San Domingo, viewed the sepul
chral urn, and in the presence.of a lare
number of distinguished persons was ac
corded the rare privilege of a sight of the
interior of the casket. He was fortunate
enough to be allowed to take a large num
ber of photographs, which will be repro
duced for exhibition at Chicago. His opin
ion as to the genuineness of these remains
as compared with tbose in Havana was
anxiously sought, but he declined to ex
press any positive judgment without fur

Locality ofthe Disaster.
Woodsdale park is a resort on the Great
Miami river, about four miles north of
Hamilton, and about thirty miles from
Da; ton. The excursionists filled all the
car?- on a long train, and spent the day at
Wo:lsdale. They were mostly young peo
ple, composed of about equal numbers of
men and women, with a few children. It
was after 9 o'clock when the long train,
wit.i its load of happy occupants started
to return to Dayton. 'It was a little after
10 hen the train stopped at Middletown
tn !' t off an excursion which stopped there
This was twenty miles south of Dayton.
How the Accident Occurred.
The excursion train broke a draw-bar
whi e pulling on the siding, and in the de
lay of repairing a freight train came along
and ran into the next to the rear coach,
caus ing the awful disaster. The car was
packed full of people, and the freight
plowed into a mass of broken cars and
dead and crippled human beings. Re
ports of the wreck spread over the city
like wildfire, and the station soon filled
with anxious families awaiting friends on
the ill-fated train. Ambulances and
patrol wagons were ordered to the station
to transport the injured to the hospital or
to their homes. .
Detail of the Horror.
Eiiginecr Schwind, of the freight train,
saw the passenger train in front of him.
He reversed his engine, whistled for
brai.es, and applied sand, but to no pur
pose. The momentum of the freight was
too iirent to prevent a collision. He and
his fireman jumped and saved themselves
The excursion train was just pulling off
the side-track when the collision occurred,
and the engine struck the hind coach at
an angle, knocking it off the track. It
ripped the side off the next one, and lifted
the ucxt one right up on top of the steam
dome. It was in this car that the three
Iers ins lost their lives, and most of the
injured were seated.
NEARLY WIPED OUT THE TOWN.
A Column of Water Twenty Feet High
Strike. Genoa, Nev.
Carson, Xev., July 27. A thunder
storm Friday afternoon came near wiping
out 'he mountain town of Genoa. About
3 o'clock a cloud burst near where a snow
slide occurred years ago. In a few mo
mects a great torrent of water came down
three separate canons, sweeping every
thing before it. When the first alarm
was given women and children hurried to
safer quarters through the rain, carrying
their babes in their arms from Genoa
Canon The water rushed down in a sin
gle column twenty feet high, carrying
logs and bowlders with it. It struck C.
W. Dake's undertaking shop and swept it
Mnrh Damage to Crop.
The water made a clean sweep from
Snow Slide canon, leaving the rocks bare
and dashing over the base of the moun
tain. The stream from Snow Slide canon
finally struck that from Genoa canon.
Part of Dake's ranch was almost entirely
obliterated. L. Fray is the heaviest loser.
His large flume was entirely swept away
from the mouth of Genoa canon. Rocks
and debris cover much of the finest
meadow and grain land, and a great deal
of damage is also entailed by the loss of
crops. At the north of the town the dam
age from School House canon was trifling.
CLOUD-BURST AND AVALANCHE.
A Cfcbin aud It. Occupant Swept Away
Golden, Colo., July 27. The Colorado
Central had one of the worst washouts and
landslides combined in history to cope
with Saturday night. During the after
noon a cloud burst about three miles west
of Idaho Springs on a mountain, and
strut k the railroad track at a place called
Fall River. The water rushing down the
side of the mountain carried with it an
immense amount of sand, gravel and big
Burled Alive I'nder the Rubbish.
It (truck a cabin on the hillside, in which
a man named Brooks was sleeping, and
wipe lit out of existence. The unfortu
nate man has not been seen since, and it is
probable tha. his body is under the pile of
rubbish which covers the railroad track.
After striking the cabin the slide contin
ued t own over the Colorado Central track,
covet ing it for a distance of 400 feet to a
depth of fifteen feet with tightly packed
sand and boulders.
SHOCKING PICNIC ACCIDENT.
