Springfield, O., Aug., 5. The advance
guard of the People's party began to ar
rive yesterday morning. Among the first
to register was H. A. Taubeneck, chair
man of the People's party national com
mittee. The convention will be called to
order at 2 p. m. today at the city hall by
Mrs. Steven, a newspaper writer of Toledo.
The hall has been more profusely decorated
than ever before in its history. Promi
nent among the decorations are ears of
corn, sheaves of wheat, bunches of grass,
etc., all fantastically arranged. Most sig
nificant mottoes are: "Seven billion Acres
and the Result 9,000,000 Mortgaged
Homes." 'Thirteen thousand Business
Failures Anrually." 'One Million Five
Hundred Thousand Tramps and Millions
of Paupers." "How Do You Like It."
"The Voice of the People Is the Voice of
God," "Then Let the People Speak and
the Xation Prosper."
It is generally conceded that either
Hon. John Seitz or Major Cobb, the lstter
of Wellston, will get the gubernatorial
nomination. Secretary Hugo Preyor, of
Cleveland, arrived yesterday morning.
He said: "Tlr People's party will name
and elect the next president. The south
and west are thoroughly organized and
the north and east will be by next fall If
the election for president was held tomor
row the People's party would sweep the
couutry. We will make a strong effort to
elect the state ticket,"
THE KENTUCKY ELECTION.
What the Itetnrns Show as to How Alli
ance Men Voted.
Lociseille, Aug. 5 Ret urn shave been
received from niuety-five out of 119 coun
ties in the state. Not all of these are fully
reported as to the race for state officers,
but those that are reported give John
Young Brown, the Democratic nominee
for governor, a net plurality of 27.707. The
remaining counties, not included in this
report, gave in 1W7 a net Republican plu
rality of 3,01. If they show the same ratio
of Democratic gain shown bv the counties
reported, they will not give so lrge a Re
publican plurality this time; but even if
they should do so, they would not cut Mr.
Brown's plurality under i".o,X).
C an-ied a Kepulilican Cimnty.
At the la-t gubernatorial election Gov
ernor Btiikner's plurality was but M,ouO.
The People's Party has played a small
part iu tht result as to the state tickets
except to take away Republican votes in
some count ie and increase the Democratic
lead. Erwia, the People's Party candi
date for governor, seems to have carried
Green county, heretofore Republican. He
is alo second to Mr. Prowu in Grayson
county, but iu very many counties he was
not known in the race and was even dis
tanced by the Prohibition candidate, Mr.
Harris. It is impossible at present to
estimate the size of the vote for Erwin in
the state, but in the legislative race the
People's Party made itself felt to some
uiall Miow in the Legislature.
It has elected representatives in Gieen,
Taylor, Larue. Grayson, Bracken, CaM
well, Adair, and Davies counties and has
probably elected the senator in the Nine
teenth senatorial district. In Hart, No
ble, Barren, and some other counties the
People's parfy or all Alliance candidates
have given The regular nominees such a
fiht that tue result is in doubt. Tue
People's party will have from seven to ten
members of ,e house of representatives
not enough to do the Democratic party
any harm. The vote for the constitution
was large and resulted in a majority of at
least ninety thousand for the new instru
ment. THE ALLIANCE HOLDS THE KEY.
The Son of the "Old Koman" on the Ohio
Chicago, Aug 5. Allen W. Thnrman,
son of the "Old Roman," of Ohio, chair
man of the last Democratic convention at
Cleveland, reached the Lelaud hotel yes
terday morning and will remain a week,
as he has a large string of horses at the
Garfield Park track. "Yes, sir, the Demo
orats of Ohio present a solid front, not
withstanding reports to the contrary,"
said Mr. Thurman. "The fact is there
never was any real split. The newspaper
boys during the convention made it ap
pear as though a big fight was on, but the
fact is we l ad the grandest convention
ever held in Ohio. The few 'kickers' just
served to nieke things spicy.
That Uncertain Political Fanner.
"The people are awpke and the tariff
is the issue and it is going to be a straight
fight on that line. Protection will be at
tacked at every point, and on this we be
lieve we can win. The Alliance is what
makes the L.rmer Democratic vote an un
certain quantity. The Alliance people
hold a convention at Springfield in a few
days and t..ey may put up a full ticket,
which may change the situation a great
deal. The Alliance holds the key to the
situation. If we were sure of the solid
vote of the farmer Democrats we would
sweep the state, but we don't know how
this element is going to go, and hence
there is an uncertainty about the situa
tion." Michigan Labor Men.
Lansing, Mich., Aug. 5. The general
state assembly, Knights of Labor, was in
session with closed doors yesterday after
noon and eveuing, with twenty delegates
present, representing 100 assemblies
throughout the state. The main discus
sion was on the recent greeting sent by the
general secretary and treasurer of the or
der at Philadelphia, earnestly requesting
tte assembly to take independent political
action. The result of the convention ws
the adoption of resolutions looking tc a
combination of workingraen at the po.ls.
The assembly refused to indorse the Peo
Mrs. Googar Still After Scalps.
Chicago, Aug. 5. Mrs. Helen M. Cougar,
who raked all the parties over the coals
Sunday at Oak Ridge park, this state,
was here yesterday en route to Crystal
Lake, Ills., where she is to speak. She is
still on the war path for the powers that
be. Thus spake she of Mayor Washburne:
"I think Mayor Washbarne is an official '
perjurer and anarchist. Ha was elected 1
by the people of Chicago to see that their
laws were executed- Now that he is elect
ed, what does his hanor do? Well, it ap
pears that this limb of a great fam
ily tree has something in his head he calls
the 'German idea.' This 'German idea'
allows him to give the saloons permission
to sell whisky and other intoxicating
liquors on Sunday, providing they pull
down their window blinds aud close the
front doors. He places his elastic 'German
idea' against that statute, and allows the
saloons to ru n on Sunday. This is ignor
ing the statute he was sworn to execute."
To License Drinkers.
iAssas Citv, Aug. 5. One of the most
unique ordinances ever introduced in a
common council has been presented to the
lower house by Alderman Bowes. The
ordinance provides that all who drink
liquors in this city after Jan. 1, 18W2, shall
pay a license tax into the city treasury
for the privilege. Drinkers are divided
into four classes, as follows: Beer drinkers
exclusively shall pay 120 a year; beer and
wine, t"J5 a year (excluding champagne);
beer, wine and whisky, $); champagne,
$50. Mr. Bowes estimates that the city
will derive a revenue of fl.OOO.OJO a year
from this source.
Divided on the Sub-Treaaury Flan.
Topeka, Kan., Aug. 5. The agitation
within the Alliance ranks over the sub
treasury scheme has brought forward op
position from unexpectedsources. Colonel
W. A. Harris, of Leavenworth county,
candidate of the People's party caucus for
United States senator, has written a long
communication opposing the scheme.
THE CURRENCY IN CIRCULATION.
A Statement Showing What It Was at
. Five Different Teriods.
Washington', Aug. 5. Statements have
been prepared at the treasury department
showing the amounts of money in circula
tion on the first day of July of the years
IS11O, lSrt5, 185, 1S89, and 10L All the
statements furnished are made upon pre
cisely the same basis. The amount of
each kind of money in the country is first
stated, from that is deducted the amount
in the treasury, and the remainder is given
as the amount in circulation. There is
nothing omitted from the statement which
should appear there except minor coins
(nickels and pennies and they are left out
of all the reports because of the difficulty
in estimating the amount of them in use.
As the amount at the present time is cer
tainly greater than in the earlier years,
their omission will not be unfavorably
criticised by those who contend that there
is now a scarcity of money.
A Steady Increase for Thirty Years.
To state all the facts in a few words,
the amount of money iu circulation in
Is.) was about 435.ii.0ial. and the
amount per capita was 13 -.Y In lS-S

on the 1st of January last the amount
was nearly f l., 000,00. with S4.10 as the
per capita allowance, the highest in the
history of the United State-,. Owing tc
shipments of g.M to foreign countries
there has been a decline since Jau. 1 l.il,
not only in the per capita amount, but in
the total also: but the total circulation on
the 1st. instant, notwithstanding the out
flow of gold, was about 1 50).o M.Oui, and

FernTian Official Much Angered by a Lit
tle Chilian Difficulty.
New Yoi;k. Aug. 3. A Lima, Peru,
special to The Herald says: Intense excite
ment tins lei 'i created ill diplomatic cir
cles here by a fierce personal encounter
lietween the representative of the Chilian
revolutionarv party and a military attache
of the Chilian government legation. From
all accounts the attacking party was the
attache, and the assault is said to have
been of a most brutal character. The in
surgent representative is severely injured.
Iu fact, the Peruvian authorities have al
ready taken up the affair and will insist
upon satisfaction. The affair is looked
upon as a gross violation of the rights ac
corded the junta's representative by their
friendly neighbor. Peru.
Longtreet and Tenuy.
New York, Aug. 5. Mr. Michael F.
Dwyer, owner of Long-treet, says that if
Mr. Pulsifier. owner of Teuny, insists on
satisfaction, he will make a match for
$10,000, same weights and distances as on
Saturday last. Mr. Dwyer also offered to
match Kingston against Tenny for any
amount at a mile and an eighth, the race
to be run at Jerome park, either this week

out Kingston's defeat by Tenny in the
Ocean stakes, and he believes Kingston
will do it if the match is made.

Rev. Dr. Nicholson, of Philadelphia, as
bishop of the Episcopal diocese of Mil
