the coat of arms of the various states and
territories, supported on the right and left
by the stars and stripes. Over the stage,
exquisitely painted on a single canvas sur
rounded by bunting and American flags of
.rge dimensions, were portraita-of well
known leaders of the temperance move
ment, including Neal Dow, Frances Wii

B. Finch, ex-Governor St. John and John
Black. These were flanked on either side
by portraits of Washington and Lincoln.
A Klag with a History.
Depending from the.canvas to within a

counterpart of the stars and stripes, with
an Inscription showing that it was a his

been unfurled for St. John in 14, floated
for Fisk in lsf. was suspended over the
platform at Indianapolis in ls'SS, and
would wave for the nominee of the con
vention. Bat what attracted the greatest
attention on the part of both delegates
and visitors were t he score or more of
mottoes that, incaacd in red, white and
blue bunting, ran around the railing of
the balcony, making the entire circuit of
the hall. "Gin mills grind boys; v.lioe?"
asked one; "A tariff in souls means free
trade in soui-;" .'mother, "License of evil
complicity with crime,'" etc., etc.
Contention Called to Order.
There was great cheering as t be delega
tions file 1 into their places, and greater
cheering when some leader like St. John
or Dickie was noticed, livery delegation
wns in place by 10 n. m., and jtist before
the Bare fell the whi li convention broke
Mt with "My Country 'Tis of Thee." At
10:3! Dickie called the convention to order
and introduced Kev. Evan-, the chaplain
of the day. His prayer was punctuated
all through with exclamations from the
delegates: "Amen:'' "Praise God!" "Glory
to Godl" The next feature was the wel
coming speech by Kev. Dr. Lockwood, aud
Dickie made the response.
Tem porn r j Organ iznt inn.
Dickie said the Prohibitionists proposed
to force the light and that the convention's
Utterances would admit of but one inter
pretation. He also said that forty-three
state were represented, and then informed
the delegates that John P. St. John had
Wen selected as chairman of the temporary
organization. AH through the two last
speeches the delegates had cheered, but it
was only a zephyr compared with a cy
loue to the way they "whooped it up''
when St. John appeared escorted by
Hastings of Vfsconsin an Evans of Illi
nois. He declared the gathering the
brainiest one that ever met and generally
eulogized Prohibition, his speech being
principally a recital of the probable plat
form. Decidedly Against Fusion.
TUere was one point, however, which
Will be fought out in convention that St.
John was emphatic about and that was
that no fusion was wanted, and this was
loudly cheered. Temporary secretaries
were appointed, and it was agreed that the
chairmen of delegations should be allowed
to cast the votes of those cot present.
Rules were adopted, the roll was called
for members of committees and the con
vention took a recess.
RITTER FOR PERMANENT CHAIRMAN.
The Convention Declines to Let Absent
Delegates lie Counted In the Vote.
The convention reassembled at 4 o'clock,
when the committee on permanent organ
ization reported the names of Colonel Eli
Bitter, of Indianapolis, for permanent
chairman, and Kev. Sam Small for sec
retary. The committee also reported a
recommendation that the votes cast
should only represent the delegates in
actual attendance, and that the votes of
delegates who had not come to Cincin
nati should not be announced by the chair
men of state delegations. On behalf of
the minority Sam Small submitted a re
port authorizing the casting of the full
vote of each delegation. For nearly two
hours thereafter, amid considerable ex
citement and uproar, the convention de
bated the pros and cons of the question,
"in;. Ii Advodates His Heport.
Small made one of his characteristic
speeches in behalf of the minority. He
declared that it was sought to perpetuate
an outrage upou the weaker delegations;
that if the majority prevailed the conven
tion would simply resolve itself into a
mass meeting of people who had money
enough to come to Cincinnati and become
a grand mob instead of a convention.
Latest U. 5. Gov't Report.
Grooof Xew York moved to substitute the
minority report for the majority Morgan
of Minnesota dech red himself ashamed of
Small's speech, an 1 said that in the olden
days of the party i was a few fellows with
too much money and too little brains that
controlled conventions. Nowadays they
believed in practic d politics, and allowed
no cliques nor rings to run the party.
Hard Work to Keep Order.
('ran lil 1 of Texas told the convention
that if all the delegates from his state had
come here it would have cost enough
m y to start a national bank.
The debate was continued at great length,
speakers being Oon tin Dally interrupted by
objections to their remarks and cries of
Question." At times the uproar was al
most deafening, an I Chairman St. John
almost splintered his desk and lost his
voice in an effort to secure even a sem
blance of order.
simiii'- Report Rejected.
FH - tlv. nfrer the previous question had
been ordered by .00 delegates, and the
chair had been in able to decide which
side bad the best ol it on a viva voce vote,
a call of the roll of states was ordered and
the amendment WaS defeated by 721 to 350.
The majority rep rt was then adopted
amid prolonged c heers, and at t":40 the
vent ion took a recess until 8 o'clock.
The Eve line Session.
It was 9 p. m. bef re the convention re
assembled. Chairman Kitter was intro
dnoed as permanent chairman, and said
there would be n - peace in politics, no
peace in the genen 1 commercial affairs of
the nation, no peaci in the church of God
until the liquorqueition wassettled. Then
he advocated buryii g the north and south
quarrel, and the southern delegates ap
plauded vehemently , and surrounded t'.ie
Indiana delegation waving their hats, j.e
closed with the statement that the Prohi
bition vote would bt a feature of the elec
tion in Indiana.
Call for a Free Silver Tlank.
A speech by Mrs. Lien Gougar explan
atory of the objects of the White Rose
league was in order after the chairman's
address. A dispatel from the North Deli
ver Prohibition league conveying greet
ings and expressing the hope that the
conv ution would in -orporate in the plat
form a plank for the free and unlimited
coinage of gold an 1 silver was read by
Sam Small and received with tumultuous
applause, and then at l(;iran adjourn

Keynote of the Convention.
The keynote of the convention was no
recognition of state s-ues, notably the

whose object was to secure a prohibition
plank in the platform, but the question
was ignored. D pou reassembling A. L.

ago a colored individual, calling himself
Tip-O-Tip, and claiming to be the young
est sou of the Zulu King Cetawayo, aud
the rightful heir to the throne of Africa,
struck Toledo, and commenced giving a
series of lectures for the benefit, as he
claimed, of the heathen in Africa. Tip
was received with open arms by the church
people of the city, and secured admittance
by virtue of his princely attributes to some
of the best families in the city.
They Made Much or Him.
The newspapers devoted columns to the
royal negro, and he became a prominent
figure. He made a tour of the city selling
photographs of himself, taking advantage
of the opportunity to thoroughly examine
some of the finest residences in town. His
curiosity to investigate the interior of the
houses was supposed to be mere savatre
curiosity and he was allowed perfect free
dom. Ono of Three Slick Citizens.
It now turns out that the wily Tip had
two Confederates. They are Walker Rice
and Henry Wood. After Tip had located
the houses, Rice and Wood got in their
work as professional burglars. They broke
into four houses inside of a week and se
cured nearly jf!,000 worth of diamonds,
jewelry, etc. In the meanwhile Tip was
being feted and petted, entertaining the
people with wild yarns about Zululaud.
Got Away with Some Cash.
Rice and Wood have len arrested, and
are now in jail. Tip-O-Tip, who is the son
of an Indianapolis washerwoman, has dis
appeared, taking with him about
500 in Toledo money. He car
ried forged recommendations from; leading
college professors throughout the country
and a few genuine ones from others whom
he had hoodwinked. The trio of crooks
has worked the country from one end to

The jewelry and plate have all been re
covered. Rice has made a full confession.
Tip went to Cincinnati last week, abduct
ing David Voting, an 8-year-old colored
lad, at the time. The boy's relatives have
located him at ISO Sycamore street in that
city and will go after him. Rice says that
