Springfield, Ills,, May 4. Today's
Republican state convention promises to
to be pretty unanimous as far aa the state
ticket is concerned, the Fifer men being in
an immense majority. But the contest for
p'.a ee on the delegation to the Minneapo
lis convention will be spirited and will
probably take place on the floor of the con
vention, all effort to fix up a slate having
proved successful. One party wants
C ullom to head the delegation and the
other wants "Uncle Dick" Oglesby.
i The Probable Nominations.
Both favor .an nninstructed delegation.
The Pglesby so en seem to have the upper
han. The probable state ticket Is aa fol
lows: Governor, Joseph W. Fifer, lieu

urer, Henry L. Herts; auditor, C. W.

The Michigan Democracy.
Mcskegox. Mich., May 4. The Demo
cratic state convention which i in session
here today, will be unanimously in favor
of Cleveland. There doesn't seem to be
a Hill man among the delegates. So strong
is the anti-Hill sentiment that the com
mittee having charge of the decoration of
the wigwam decided not to put up his
picture, although there are huge crayons
of Cleveland, Palmer, Boies, Russell of
Massachusetts, Dickinson and other rep
Meeting of Alliance Men.
Birmingham, Ala., May 4. The presi
dents and executive committee of the
Farmers' Alliance met in conference in this
city today. Fifteen states were represent
ed. Dr. Polk called the meeting to order
and made a long speech, which was fol
lowed by other speeches, all counseling
harmony and reporting prospects in the
speaker's section. Generally political or
partisan action was condemned. Ko action
was faken. The delegates are pledged to
secrecy, and will have nothing to do with
All Cleveland In Wisconsin.
Milwaukee, May 4. If the Wisconsin
Democrats could have the making of their
national ticket tod.y it would be Cleve
land and Boies. Certain it is that all is
Cleveland. The governor of Iowa is the
only quantity in doubt. Most of the dele
gates had arrived last night, and they
were all of one mind.
I A Woman Delegute Probable.
ClIETEXNE, Wyo., May 4. -The Repub
lican state convention met in this city to
day and will be unique in one respect in
that it will be the first state convention
ever held in which the women sit as dele
gates, and there is a strong probability
that one of the delegates chosen to the
Minneapolis convention will be a woman.

believe that the majority of our delegates
favor his renomination."

DEADLY WORK OF THE CYCLONE.
Many Person. In Kansas and Oklahoma
Killed and Injured.
Kansas City, May 4. All day Monday
and Monday night the storm raged in
Kansas and Oklahoma, and to such an
extent were the elements disturbed that
wire service was prostrated over nearly
the entire area affected. There appeared
to be several storm centres and these did
much damage in widely separated locali
ties. One storm in Shawnee county killed a
farmer, James Mitchell, and wounded three
members of the family of Joseph Heil, the
latter being fatally wounded. For three
miles a'ong Mission creek, not a house
was lef '. standing.
Other Storm Freaks in Kansas.
Another storm in the western part of the
county killed John Pax ton and tore down
several houses. Near Auburn a storm
carried away the house of James Drake
and took his 14 year-old daughter and
lodged ber 'n a tree top unhurt. Drake
and his wife were both injured. H. H.
Buckley's house was completely destroyed
and the Pleasant Valley schoolhouse was
torn to pieces. At Cedar Junction seven
cars of the Santa Fe road were blown from
the track. At Lenane nearly every house
in the town was moved from its founda
tion, some being badly wrecked. The
storms in Kansas were all accompanied by
hail and much rain
Two New Settlers Killed.
In Oklahoma the storm was in the na
ture of a tornado and destroyed every
house in its path. F. A. Bidwell and his
son George, who recently came to the ter
ritory from York, Neb., were both killed
on their farm. They had just completed
a house for the family and the latter were
to have started from Kingfisher for the
farm yesterday evening. Near Mullhall
several buildings were unroofed and other
wise damaged, but no one is reported
killed from that neighborhood.
Looking for a Won Report.
Much stock is reported aa killed all
along the path of the storm through the
territory, and it is possible that many
deaths will be reported as soon aa com
munication is restored with all parts of
the country. In southern K"n" and near
the southeastern corner many orchard
were entirely destroyed and great damage
has been done to the fruit interest of the
Aadarsonvlll Bought by the O. A. B.
Washington-, May 4. The Grand Army
department of Georgia, ha bought the
old Andersonville prison ground, it is
said, and will present the property to the
national G. A R at the encampment in
Washington next September. It is hoped
that congress may be induced toestablish a
soldier's home on the grounds, which in
clude one hundred acres, the site of the
old stockade and the surroundiLg forts.
Some Chicago men wanted to get posses
sion of the famous old prison, probably for
exhibition purpose, but the Georgia G.
A R. got ahead of them. Andersonville
is only a few miles from Americus, the
home of Spenker Crisp. a

TRADE PANIC AT SCRANTON.
About Every Mechauie and Laborer la
Scbanton, Pa., May 4. Trade circles in
Scrantou are on the brink of a panic be
cause of the threatened attitude of the
carpenters, plasterers, masons, bricklayers,
and helpers. They are demanding a nine
hour day with ten hours' pay. The paint
ers bave been on a strike for the sains
thing nearly a month, but there has been
no yielding by either side. Two anions of
hod carriers bave voted to strike.
The Bosses Also Organised.
The stone masons placed their demands
before the employers and will strike on
the instant if not agreed to. The brick-,
layers voted to continue work until they
hear regarding their demands from the
head officers of their organizations. The
carpenters took a secret vote. The plas
terers are yet to decide their course. These
trades paraded 3,000 men Monday after
noon, bearing banner and mottoes relat
ing to their demands from the bosses. The
builders have organized an exchange and
will fight every demand made by the
Gov. Flower (iocs Into Training-.
Albany, May 4. Governor Flower is
taking boxing lessons, under the in
structions of a local pugilist, and for four
weeks he ha taken the regular training
of a prize fighter . getting ready for the
ring. He walk to and from the capitol
and works for several hours. The effect
of this regular discipline shows plainly.
Mr. Flower's weight has been reduced,
twenty-two pounds. His muscles have
been hardened and he can strike a good
stiff blow from the shoulder. A room
has been fitted up in the executive mansion
for a gymnasium, and there Mr. Flower

Doings In Senate and House.
Washington, May 4. The senate yes
terday, by a vote of 30 to 15, passed the
amended Chinese exclusion bill notwith
standing the p rotest of Sherman, chair
man of the committee on foreign rela
tions, that the new section requiring all
the Chiuese to register within a year or te
imprisoned was a violation of treaty obli
gations. The only other feature of the ses
sion was Kyle's free silver speech, which
was delivered to empty seats.
The time of the house was occupied in
further debate on the diplomatic and con
sular appropriation bill, which was Anally
passed. The most important changes in
the bill as reported by the committee were 1
the items . restoring the Danish mission
and the rejection of the appropriation
of (65,000 for the Continental railway
