"This contingency was fully understood

I reserved the right to do. announce that I
will not so act. Under the authority
vested in me by the national committee
I will probably announce the executive
committee within the next few days aud
thai committee will meet at an early date.
At that meeting I will formally tender
my reignation and my successor will be
then elected. My successor will be chosen
by the executive committee as authorized
by resolution adopted by the national

MORE TROUBLE FOR THE FAIR.
Riotous Doings er Wharf Kights on
the Lake Front.
CHICA(K), July ( .When the question
was before the World's fair directors of
how to get the crowds of people to and
from the fair, it wa decided that the water
route must be ut lized. The directors
therefore looked al out for some responsi
ble organization that would agree to run a
line of boats from the city to the fair
grounds carrying i minimum of 15,000
passengers per hour each way, to leave at
stipulated times not waiting for the boats
to fill up and to cb irge astipulated price.
The contract was made with the Henrv
syndicate on these ti rms, and its boats will
be the only ones al owed to land at the
piers now building at Jackson park.
Rights on tie Lake Front.
The state legislature and city council
... . 1. . m , . , ....
Kae tue norms ri lr the riKtit to use
Lake Front park ii this city as a "gate-
way" to the fair, including rights at the
wnarf for !00 feet ilong the park. The
fair directors are n-w ready to build the
necessary piers at Lake Front park, which
will be limited to th use of the syndicate
boats. In order to begin work it was
necessary to prohibit the swarm of inde
pendent, boats which have been taking
people to the fair siie from lauding at the
lake front along the lock line set apart for
Lhe fair piers.
Quite a Riot Over the Matter.
Yesterday the city police began the work
f clearing away the craft landing at this
point. Notices had been given each boat
of what the city was going to do, and each
notice wa:i replied t.. by the refusal of the
independent leoats to move. About inti
police started in to f rce the independents
to move, and a mob of about 5,00t en
couraged the captai is to resistance. The
consequence was liv-ly times. The mob
grew so turbulent in its opposition to
"monopoly" that tin police had to charge
it and drive it back.

ONLY EIGHT SEATS GAINED SO FAE.
Yesterday's Pol line Reso.lt in Even
Bonors Joseph Chamberlain's Brother
Defeated by a Borne Itnler and Perth,
a Liberal Stronghold, Captured by the
Tories Benry M. Stanley Defeated by
a Pew Bundred Totes Incidents or
London, July 6. The expectations of
the Liberals as to gains in the metropolitan
boroughs were not realized at the elections
yesterday. The total number of members
elected is 160, of whom the Conservatives
have elected eighty-nine, the Liberal Un
ionists eight, and the Liberals sixty-three,
including Thomas Power O'Connor. The
Tories gained seven and the Liberals
seven seats in the contest yesterday, leav
ing the Liberals, a net gain of eight seats,
including Monday. There is deep disap
pointment among the Liberals over the re
sults in London, where it is evident that
the success of the radical element in the
county council elections has not involved
desertion of the Conservative ranks in the
Joe Chnr.iberlain's Brother IScaten.
One notable event of the day has been
the defeat of Richard Chamberlain, and
even the Radicals cannot help feeling some
regret for his pretty young wife, who
strove so hard to secure his re election.
Mrs. Chamberlain went personally among
the voters, and especially the working
class. Her appeals, however, although re
spectfully met, appear not to have availed
against the current of her husband's op
ponent's popularity, and, whatever may
be in store for Joe, Richard has "fallen
outside the breastworks." His defeat was
a Liberal gain.
The Conservatives Capture Perth.
Notable defeats were not all on the side
of the Liberals. William Whitelaw, Con
servative, was elected at Perth over C. S.
Parker, Liberal, who represented Perth in
the late parliament, and J. Woolen. Both
were defeated, Parker receiving 1,171 votes
and Woolen 007. This is a signal defeat
for the Liberals, as Perth heretofore has
a! ways been represented by a Liberal in
parliament. Parker sat for Perth from
187S until now.
Defeat of Benry M. Stanley.
Another disappointed woman is Mrs.
Henry M. Stanley. Some of those who
know Stanley say that he is himself not
deeply disappointed. Stanley, however,
made a better run than was expected. His
defeat is a Liberal gain. The vote was

SOME MORE "LIBERAL" FAIR PLAY.
Mrs. Cornwallis West and Ber Bushand
London, June 6. Colonel Cornwallis
West, Unionist candidate in Denbigh
shire, Wales, is being assis ed in his can
vass by his wife, the noted beauty. Mrs.
West attempted yesterday to address a
meeting which had howled her husband
down. For a moment there were cries of
"Iet her speak." but the silence which en
sued was brief. The disorder being re
newed Mrs. West lost her temper and
declared that in her native country, Ire
land, the men were too manly to prevent
a woman from championing a public
Case of Beauty ami the Beasts.
This happened at the platform provided
(or Unionist speakers. There was another
platform provided for Giadbtonians and
speakers were occupying it at the lime.
As the hubbub at the Unionist platform
increased Mrs. West, nothing daunted,
made her way tojthe platform where a rival
orator was: addressing a crowd, and began
an argument with him. He was impolite
enough to shake his list in her face, and
the crowd was so threatening that Mrs.
West finally retired.
Shades of Daniel O'Connelll
London, July 6. A son and namesake
of the great Irish liberator, Daniel O'Con
nell, is supporting the Conservative can
didate in the Isle of Thanet. To criticism
upon his course lie replied: "It Is as an
Irish Catholic that I vote for a Conserva
tive. I have seen during the past six
years the country wisely governed. Mr.
Gladstone's home rule schema would be
most dangerous to Ireland."
Irishmen Stone a Magistrate.
DUBLIN, July 6. At a meeting held in

candidate in East Donegal, the Nation

A Buckeye Man Who Celebrated with
CAMBRIDGE, O., July 6 Monday night
Fred Albright, aged 24, stepped into Orme's
hardware store and purchased four half
pound, 60 per cent, dynamite cartridges.
There was a grand pyrotechnic display in
thc public square at the time. He went
out into the middle of Main street and
lighted the fuse of one of the cartridges.
It exploded in his hands and the other
three went off in his pocket at the Rame
time and blew his body to atoms. Frag
ments of his flesh were found plastered to
the walls in buildings in the vicinity.
Thousands of people were in the public
square and streets, and just how such an
explosion could take place in a crowd of
that size without killing and mangling
scores of persons is a mystery.
Pound Bis Body In the l ake
Chicago, July 6 The body of John W.
Donaldson, the secretary of the Epworth
League of Wesley Methodist church, who
disappeared suddenly and mysteriously
Wednesday last, was found floating in
lake Michigan yesterday. Donaldson's
watch and chain and other valuables were
found in the pockets of the dead man,
which leads the police to believe that he
was not the victim of robbers and that he
took his own life. His friends say that
his death was surely accidental, as he had
no troubles and was aconsisent Christian.
