CO.OOO Majority In Alabama and the
legislature Democratic by a Small
Margin Field Notes,
Minnkapolis, Aug. 4. The Democratic
tat convention met here yesterday and
nominated a ticket that would have made
five in the field if the Farmer's Alliance
executive committee had not determined
yesterday to withdraw their ticket. As it
is, there will be four Republican, Demo
cratic, Prohibition, and People's. The
Democratic convention did up its prelimi
nary business, and took a recess to 3 p. m.
The first business of the afternoon session
was an attempt of tbe anti-Lawyer men to
have the supreme court nomination made
before that of governor, but it was defeated
sm to 193.
Lawler Nominated for Governor.
The credentials, oaganizution and rules
committees having duly reported, the
nomination of a candidate for governor
was declared in order. The opposition to
Lawler was found to be futile and his
nomination was made by acclamation,
and then the platform committee report
ed. The platform is a standard Demo
cratic declaration with a few additions.
One favors an income tax, another the
election of president and senators by
direct popular vote, and another opens
the perochial school question.
School Question to the Front.
The plank on parochial schools indorses
the Chicago plank and brings that ques
tion to the trout in the campaign. Lawler
is a Koman Catholic, and the plank was
put in at the instance of a young Lutheran
clergyman who was a delegate. The full
ticket is as follows: Governor, Daniel W.
Lawler; lieutenant governor, Harry Haw
kins, of Carlton county; secretary of state,
Peter Nelson, of Goodhue; treasurer, Jo
seph Leicht, of Winona; attorney general.
Judge J. C. Xethawy, of Stillwater; su
preme court Thomas Canty, of Minneap
olis; Daniel Buck, of Mankato, and Judge
WANTED ELKINS TO RUN.
And He Had to Run Away from His West
Hcntixgton, W. Vs., Aug. 4. Secre
tary Klkins was permanent president of
the Republican state convention that met
here yesterday. The convention was a
unit for him as the candidate for gov
ernor, and leading men labored with him
all day trying to get him to accept. So
determined were tbe delegates that Klkins
had to run for it almost, at the afternoon
session, when he declared tbe session ad
journed and stepped out of a back door to
escape the importunities. The delegates
didu't adjourn. They just stayed there
and nominated him by acclamation.
Chose Another Man Finally.
At the evening session Elkins made a
speech and succeeded in convincing the
convention that he could not run. That
settled, tbe delegates went to work, and
after an exciting contest chose T. E. Da
vis, of Taylor county, for governor, the
other candidates withdrawing and the
nomination being by acclamation. Davis
appeared before the convention and
thanked it for the honor bestowed on him.
G. S. Hyer, of Braxton, was nominated
for auditor after a hot struggle, and the
convention adjourned until 10 a. m. to
day. JONES KNOCKS THE PERSIMMONS.
No Hope Fur Kolb iu Alabama Talking
of Contests and Fraud.
Birmingham, Ala., Aug. 4. Additional
returns received from back counties com
ing in yesterday increased the majority of
Jones and the regular Democratic ticket.
Tuesday night it looked like Jones' majori
ty might fall as low as 10,i)00. He is now
assured 80,000 or more . The Kolb people
are already talking about contests and
fraud. They are not inclined to accept
defeat with good grace, and trouble may
yet follow. The legislature will be made
up largely of Alliance men, but Demo
crats are believed to have a small
Will Have About 80,000 Majority.
Birmingham, Ala., Aug. 4. Returns re
ceived from fifty-six out of sixty-six coun
ties in Alabama on Monday's election
gives Jones :ud tbe regular Democratic
ticket a majority of 20,000. The other ten
counties cannot affect the result material
ly. The legislature will be straight Demo
cratic on joint ballot by a small majority.

He Forfeits a 810,000 Race After the
Davenpokt, la., Aug. 4. The great
race for a $10,000 purse offered for a trial
between Allerton and Del march was run

emphatic temperance resolutions, among
which is the following: "Whereas, The
principal argument used by the advocates
of keeping the World's fair open Sundays
lies in the assertiou that the saloons in
Chicago are or will be open on Sundays,
we believe that Chicago is bound to de
fend her honor, and show by word and
deed that we are a law-abiding people,aud
that the above assertion is groundless and
slanderous." There was a street parade
last night and a mass meetiug in Tonilin
