MANAGER OF THE CAMPAIGN.
i -Hint inn ii to Who It Will Be on the
Washington, June 27. About thirty
ibers of the national Republican com-
ttee, which is called to meet for organ-
ition in this city to day, were on the
nnd yesterday and a lively contest was 1
ing waged over the chairmanship. Af- .
the nomination had been made at Min-
polls it was suggested that the
ttee should organize by the selection of
kson as chairman and the appoint-
ent of an executive committee to have
l mediate charge of the campaign under
i other bead. This was a succestion
sly, however, and it was thought that
members of the committee would meet
Washington and after conferring with
presetitativee of the president effect an
ranization that would be satisfactory
harmonious all around.
Clarkson Willing to Serve.
i the interim, since the adjournment of
i couveution, statements have been pub-
as coming from Llarkson to the
ct that he did not desire to serve
lot her term as chairman, but apparently
ltbout authority trom him, for yesterday
was announced that Clarkson had stated
his friends that if they desired him to
jjrve as chairman of the committee, and
they electtu Dim, ne wuuio accept iurnm
tiou. The selection of CI irkson as chair
man of the committee, h wever, will be
opposed by the friends of the administra
tion. Hut who will oppose him has not
been definitely determined upon.
Cornelius Itliss Talked Of.
There isau uncertainty at to the strength
in the committee of these opposing par
ties, and attempts are r taking to har
monize matters. One plan is that in view
of the fact that the work f the commit
tee must be done in Xew S rk city, a New
York business man should be chosen to
conduct the operations. If it lie found
that this can be done, and it is determined
to do it, the name of Cornslious N. Bliss
will probably be presented lo the commit
tee for consideration in that connection.
It is Understood that Bliss has intimated
his willingness to undertake the difficult
work "f the place.
Talk of llreaking a 1 recedent.
Another proposition is th it the augges
tion made at .lioneanolis shall be carried
til, viz: That Clarkson be elected chair
man of the national committee and another
person lie chosen as chairma lof the execu
tive committee. But ibis dees not seem to
meet the wishes of either side. Clarkson
is reported to have said that he will be
chairman of the national co nuiitteo and
chairman of the executive committee, ov
neither. On the other hand it is said by
friends of the administration that there is
no precedent in the party organization for
the division of these two offices, and there
is some reluctance manifesto. In departing
from that line.
Michener May Io the Work.
Should this arrangement bi carried out
the name of U. T. Michener v ill probably
be canvassed in connection with the chair
manship of the executive committee.
Michener was in charge of ihe Harrison
forces at Minneapolis, aud hi- work there
won much praise from all who witnessed
it. He does not desire to engage iu the
work of the campaign, but i elected by
the Committee will doubtless lay aside his
personal feelings and accept the duty de
volved upon him.
REPRESENTATIVES WILL HUSTLE.
The National Lawmakers Ai xious to Get
Into the Political ltnttle.
Washington, June 37. With the work
of the national conventions completed and
the campaign fairly on, congress is anxious
to finish up its work so that n embers may
get into the field aud work for the nation il
tickets, and, of course, for themselves.
There are many opinions exp -esse.! as to
the time when the session will end. The
most general one is that adjournment will
take place duriug the first eu days of
August, but there are some vho believe
that lln- gavel will fall by tin middle of
July. From now on until tin end of the
session the Congressional Keeord will be

London, June 27. As Gladstone was
driving through Chester Saturday to at
tend a political meeting a woman threw
a piece of hard gingerbread at him and
struck him on the nose, one side of the
missile grazing his eye and causing him
much pain. He had an oculist to treat
the injured eye. aud then went ahead
with the meeting, being received with
greater warmth owing to the attack on
him. After speaking the eye was in
flamed and required to be again treated,
the oculist saying that Mr. Gladstone must
be quiet for a few days.
Exaggerated Ueports Abroad.
The papers spread exaggerated reports
about this incident, and all over the coun
try yesterday the outrage was thundered
againsl from the dissenting pulpit aud the
G.O.M. has received hundreds of dispatches
expressing sympathy. Gladstone knows
how to work up an audience and iu his
speech he made a good thing or the at
tack upon him. declaring that "the man"
who f rowed dat brick" did it from malice
and that the opponents of the Liberals
were fighting them with the weapons of
intimidation, while the audience cheered
again and again.
Peculiar Campaign Methods.
There are some peculiar campaign meth
ods in Kugland so peculiar that if ttied
frequently in the L'nited States they
would result in the death of somebody.
Here the worst that is likely to happen to
a participant is a broken head. For in
stance, on Friday night last Henry M.
Stauley, the explorer, who is running for
parliament on the Unionist ticket, tried to
hold a meeting in Lambeth, but a crowd
of Glads ton ian roughs got possession of
part of the hall and interrupted the speaker
with cheers for Gladstone and hooting.
The same fate met Chamberlain in Coven
try, except that the roughs were rougher,
and Chamberlain couldn't uiake himself
Assault on Journalist Sala.
Another specimen of the temper of a
British crowd was given yesterday. George
Augustus Sala has written against a
trades union called the Domestic Servants'
union. The organization held a meeting
in Hyde park yesterday and Sala drove to
the meeting with his wife to see the de
monstration. The journalist was recog
nized by some of the crowd, who began
pelting him with stones and dirt, hooting
and groaning meanwhile. Sala started to
leave the spot, but was not allowed to go
unmolested. The crowd pressed upon him
and Mrs. Sala, pulling and hauling them
about until when the police rescued them
Sala was minus his hat and Mrs. Sala's
clolliiiig was badly torn, while she herself
was in a nearly tainting condition.
VERY WARM TIMES IN DU3LIN.
A Whole Day Devoted to the Dull
Thud of the SMUalafc.
Cokk, June 87. William Redmond and
the lord mayor of Dublin made an attempt
yesterday morning to canvass Blarney
street, an anti-Parnellitestronghold. They
Were continually pelted with stones and
soon compelled to fK-e. An anti-Parnellite
meeting held la the afternoon, addressed
by William O'Brien, was attacked by Par
nellites, who used sticks and stones freely.
The anti-Parnellites fled. Later Redmond
and the lord mayor, supported by 8,000
Parneilites, marched through Blarney
street. The Parneilites as they went along
broke the windows of m iny houses, from
the windows of which the residents pelted
the crowd In the street.
The Parneilites Get KcTcnge.
Iii return the Parneilites forced the doors
of several houses aud beat their occupants.
The Parneilites be 1 a meeting in the
street, addresses being made by Redmond
and the lord mayor. After the meeting
the Parneilites wrecked the rooms of the
Blackpool bank and smashed the win
dows. The anti Parneilites, being in a
minority, were unable to cope with the
Parneilites, but pelted them from behind
houses. The police were too few in num
ber to stop the disorder. Fifteen injured
coml.itants were taken to hospitals for
treatment. Many other persons were
Attends t'hnrch Under Difficulties.
While O'Brien was attending the mass
in the morning a crowd of Parneilites sur
rounded the church and continuously
jeered and hooted. When O'Brien emerged
from the church he was at once sur
rounded by a crowd of anti-ParnellTtes
and having lioarded a car was escorted to
his hotel. Several fights occurred on the
way, sticks being freely used. Outside the
hotel a serious conflict arose, in which
several persons were injured. The crowd
was finally dispersed by the police.
Police Had to L'e Their Swords.
Jordan, M. P., was attacked by a crowd
of Parneilites yesterday on arriving in
Limerick to address an anti-Parnellite
meeting. Jordan was struck on the head,
his hs.t being smashed in, and he was
compelled to take refuse in the railway
station. A strong detachment of police
afterward escorted him to his hotel. On
the way the Parneilites hooted and stoned
the police, who finally used their swords
to disperse the crowds. Several arrests

Pittsburg, June 27. Carnegie, Phipps

their Homestead mills Saturday night.
The men all belong to the Amalgamated
association. The company evidently is
preparing for a struggle with the Amalga
mated association. The scale of wages ex

tions are that the 4,000 workers at Home
stead will all be on strike Friday morning.

Siorx Falls, S. D., June 27. V. H.
Lyons, United States commissioner, has
laid before the city council a plan by
which the city could control and run all
the saloons. Lyons claims that his plan
is perfectly feasible and legal under the
prohibition law. The number of saloons

it is claimed, the income to the city would

CHICAGO WINS A GAME
And Anson Will Keep the Ball as a Me

Chicago, June 27. The Colts won a
game last week. It was the last game
of the week and it didn't save the aggre
gation from seventh place in the list, to
which they dropped during the week, but
it was none the less welcome to the parti
sans of the team and the cranks; and when
it was over Anson captured the ball and
proudly marched away with it. He will
have it put in a glass case as a great na
tional game curiosity. The standing of
the base ball clubs is as shown below:

Talking of patent medicines
you know the old prejudice.
And the doctors some of
them are between you and us.
They would like you to think
that what's cured thousands
won't cure you. You'd be
lieve in patent medicines if
they didn't profess to cure
everything and so, between
the experiments of doctors,
and the experiments of patent
medicines that are sold only
because there's money in the
" stuff, " you lose faith in every
thing. And, you can't always tell
the prescription that cures by
what you read in the papers.
So, perhaps, there's no better
way to sell a remedy, than to
tell the truth about it, and
take the risk of its doing just
what it professes to do.
That's what the World's
Dispensary Medical Associa
tion, of Buffalo, N. Y., does

If they don't do what their
