St. Louis, Feb. 23. Two o'clock was the
hour announced for the opening of the
Industrial convent ion.and when it arrived,
the ground floor of the exposition building
was well filled with delegates, while there
was a respectable fringe of spectators in
the two balconies. The hall was tastefully
decorated. The entrance of Presideut L.
L. I'olk, of t he Farmers' Alliance and In
dustrial I'nion, was greeted with pro
longed applause and the band struck up
"Three Cheers for the Ked, White and
Blue." There were two noticeable features j
of the session. One was the vigor, deter-
Gels ion t Huaiaen.
The conference seemed to have had
enough speeches after Donnelly was
throng i, and got down to business. Ma
rion Cannon was chosen temporary chair
man and J. Y. Hayes, of Pennsylvania,
oue-a ined Ijiborite, and John H. Stelle,
of llliiiois, a one-legired granger, were
elected secretaries. After some debate re
garding proceedings it was decided that
the various organizations should appoint
their ov n members of the committee on
credent als, and a recess was taken for con
suitauori. Upon reassembling the com
couiniit :-e was announced, and at 0 o'clock
an adjournment was taken. The report of
the committee on credentials will show a
total attendance of nearly l,2viu delegates.
The only states not represented are Ver
mont, Delaware, New Hampstiire.Nevada,
Mississippi and Wyoming.

In calling the conference to order Terrell
eaid that the mas-es were expecting a sec
ond declaration of Independence, and they
would get one. The time had arrived
when they should lay aside their preju
dices and do their duty like men. At the
same time they should lie conservative
and just in their demands. He asked the
delegates to limit their declaration to the
questions of land trasportation, taxation
and money. As to the first, those that
own the land now own the people, and the
time had come when the masses should
now ravint: maniacs, having eaten a decoc

IN THE LAND OF THE FREE.
Incident That Senas Sort of Out of
ieur, as It Were.
New Yoiai, Feb. -o. When Alderman
William augner, of Newark, bolted his
party and voted with the Democrats to
break the tie in the common council it was
said that hi would sulTer for it, and thai
he had losi the respect of both parties.
Waugner is a wagon builder, and it was
rumored that he would have plenty of

country. As to the question of transpor
tation it was full of abuses, and the only
atisfactory remedy was the purchase
of the highways by the government at a
fair valuation. The inequality of taxation
would be a disgrace to any government,
while a radical change in the financial pol
icy of the government had become a ne
cessity. I'olk Slake Some liemark.
Welcoming addresses were then made,
and Polk renponded, advocating the sub
treasury scheme by the proposition: ,-If
money can be borrowed on wheat and cot

the name of reason and justice can it not

Scart d Oft" the Fire Insurers.
Last week, it is said on good authority,
the Merchants Insurance company of
Newark refused to renew two policies on
his property and another company refused
to assume the risk. One of the officers of
the former c unpany said politics did not
enter into the matter, but the company
had a right to refuse any risk, aud in view
of the occur-enees in the last few weeks it.

T. V. Powderly was the next speaker,

turned pale, half reeled against the desk
and at the same time chipped his hand
over bis breast in the region of his heart.
There was a painful stillness for a moment,
which was only broken by his remarking

whom were acquainted with the fact that
the labor leader is a great sufferer from
heart affection, wouldn't have it so, and
there was a great shout of "Don't give up,

Inerney, the express messenger who had
eueh a thrilling experience Sunday morn
ing, was brought to his home in this city
and surgical aid Btimmoned. He was tin
der the influence of anesthetics yesterday
forenoon, and his surgeon would not allow
him to see strangers. His worst wound
is that through his right thigh. The bul
let must have been 6ne from the largest
pistol the robber carried. The wound on
his forehead is slight, and that in his
hand was made by a fragment of a large
bullet, as the piece was found in the
wound. The bullet must have struck Xlc
Inerney's pistol and the larger fragment
missed him. Xlcluerney told his family
that when he found himself in the power
of the robber he rolled ont some of the less

Impatient for Currency.
The robber was impatient to get cur
rency and threatened to shoot if it was not
surrendered. He said to the messenger:
You can't fool me, I've been in this busi
ness before." While the robber was wait
ing to get the money the train reached
Lyons and the game was up. J. li. Pren

that none of the shots at Xlelnerney took
fatal effect. Superintendent l'angs, of
Pinkerton's Detective Agency, says that
Oliver Curtis Perry is the wickedest and

that he absolutely does not know what

1 Poverty-stricken Millionaire !
This seems a paradox, but it is ex
plained by one of New York's richest
men. "1 don't count my wealth in
dollars," he said. "What are all my
possessions to me, since I am a victim
of consumption ? My doctor tells me
that I have but a few months to live,
for the disease is incurable. I am poor
er than that beg-jrar yonder." "But,"
interupted the friend to whom he spoke,
"consuniption can be cured. If taken
in time. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
l)iscovery will eradicate every vestipa
of the disease from your system." "I'll
try it," said the millionaire, and he did;
and to-day there is not a healthier,
happier man to be found anywhere.
The "Discovery" strikes at the seat of
the complaint. Consumption is a dis

less than lung-scrofula and it must

"Golden Medical L)iscoverv" is not
