Hanna Gave Them No Quarter at
the Toledo Convention.
TREACHERY IN THE PARTY
RANKS?CHAIRMAN KURTZ DE ?
SERTED AT THE LAST MOMENT
BY REPUBLICANS WHO ARE
SEEKING PRESIDENTIAL PIE A
"WASHINGTON?COX ACCUSED OF
Toledo, O., June 24. ?Senator Murk
I Inn mi's uoutrol of the convention of the
Ohio Republicans was absolute and at
times approached the brutal stage.
Whenever the friends ot Senator Foraker
asked for quarter, they were reminded of
thejjJanesyille convention, two years ago,
when the MoKinleyll.uunu candidate for
governor was slaughtered and Bushnell
giren the nomination. Not only were
the friends ot Senator Foraker defeated
and humiliated, but there was a dlsposi
tion to rub it in on them, and since the
adjournment ol the convention im?
promptu jollification meetings have been
in progress in the hotel lobbies and bar?
rooms, and whenever a Foraker man puts
in an appearance he is hooted at in the
most unmerciful manner.
The proceedings of the convention were
of tba perfunctory order. The only ani?
mation attending the affair was connect?
ed with the fight for the State chairman?
ship in which Mr. Kurt/.., the Foraker
Bushnell candidate, made such a poor
showing. The Foraker people were sadly
handicapped by many cases of treachery
in their own ranks. The greed for public
pelf, and the knowledge that Mr. Hanna
is the distributing agent of the adminis?
tration, caused men who have been Iden?
tified with the Foraker cause for many
years to desert and enroll themselves un?
der the Hanna-Dick "banner. Kurtz
knows more about . politics than Dick
could acquire if he were permitted to en?
joy a half dozen life times, but Kurtz or
no other mortal could successfully have
contended against the conditions which
obtained here to day. Had Foraker been
present he, too, would have been mowed
down in the most merciless manner, so
bent were the politicians on showing
their adulation for Hanna and thus im?
proving their chances for securing olliee.
This was carried to such an extent as to
make it disgt sting.
The most conspicuous case of treachery
to Foraker was that of George B. Cox,
the Cincinnati boss, whose extraordinary
strides in politics were made possible by
the friendship of the man whom he has
deserted for Hanna. Cox owned the Cin?
cinnati delegation in to-day's convention,
in having been appointed by him It was
voted Hannaward on every case where
there was a contest, and Cox notified
Kurtz in the most cold blooded manner
that the votes of the two State conimlt
teemen from Cincinnati would be cast for
I fauna's candidate for State chairman.
In return for this Hanua is to appeal to
the "better clement" of Cincinnati,
which rebelled at the April election, to
vote for Cox's nominees for the legisla?
ture and the county ofiices in November.
When reminded of their treachery to
Foraker the Cox lieutenants declare that
it was Cox who made Foraker and not
Foraker who made Cox.
Another thing which was considered to
be in very bad taste and which made the
Foraker people very angry was an inter?
view with Mr. Perkins, Mr. Hanna's pri?
vat? secretary. Mr Perkins Is not a res?
ident of Ohio. His legal home is in the
State of Washington. Yet Mr. Peikins
discused Governor Bushnell In the fol?
lowing light and airy manner: "What is
Bushnell but an empty bended excuse!1
It is enough to saddle us with his name
on the ticket without placing the man
who created him in a position to sacrifice
the prospects of Hanna for those of gov
ernor. He is nothing but a load for us to
carry In this campaign, and we do not
propose to have this burden made greater
by the selection of Kurtz to the chair?
manship of the executive committee.
Bushnell is only" a figure-head, anyhow.
Why he should have any voice in this
matter I cannot understand. At any rate
he wlil not bo given any choice. He
ought to be glad that we do not turn him
down entirely." The Foraker folk de?
nounce Perkins as an upstart,und predict
Hannn will rue the day he placed him in
his present position.
The performance of Governor Bushnell
has been highly ludicrous. Be marched
up the hill aud then marched down again
in a manner that would have reflected
great credit on a comic opera star. Bush?
nell has a great weakness for pomp, and
can stand a steady diet of brass bands.
His coming to town last, night would have
excited the jealousy of a modern circus
parade. He was escorted from the station
to his hotel by troops and music, and Ids
salutations to the people along the line of
march would have given a teacher of Del
sarte much food for rellection. Up to
this point Bushnell was a great success.
He had no sooner reached his hotel than
he threw off an ultimatum for the bene
fit of Hanna. He announced that unless
Kurtz was re-elected State chairman he
would not accept a renomination. The
Hanna people met this by beginning to
groom Assistant Secretary Briahain,
of the Agticultural Department, fDr the
gubernatorial nomination. They were
quite vigorous in booming Brlgham, and
their work for him was libeially inter?
spersed with suggestions that a farmer
candidate would make a much better
showing in the election returns than
Bushnell could possibly hope to do. This
taik was sufficient to cause Governor
Bushnell to cut loose from the sinking
Foraker-Kurtz craft, and he lost no time
in mounting the HannH band wagen.
Governor Bushnell is trying to look
pleasant, and is seeking to let himself
down with the Idea that Hanna will not
insist on having Dick conduct the cam
ANOKE, VA., Fill!
as there were hist year. Kurtz was at
the head of the regular Republican State
committee last year, but Hanna would
not trust him, and run a campaign com
mittee of his own. This year Governor
Bushnell may set up an independent or?
ganization to look after his iuterests. The
convention was most liberally attended
by men who have but recently been ap?
pointed to Federal offices, and nil of them
were active for Hanna and against the
Foraker forces. Judge A. C. Thompson,
who has just been appointed On the com?
mission to codify the criminal laws of
the nation, was one of the managers of
the Dick candidacy, and tbe smaller
office-holders who were actively present
would make considerable work for the
civil service commission If It were dis?
posed to enforce the law under which it
is supposed to be operating.

HARD FIGHT?PRIMARY SCHOOL
CHILDREN WERE IN DANGER.
Nuw York. June 24.?Fire that caused
a loss of ^380,000 and culled out most of
the (lremen in the city, broke out this
afternoon in the large seven-story budd?
ing at the northeast c.ruer of Greenwich
and Laight ?-treets. The flames taxed the
firemen to their utmost, and the interior
of the building was destroyed. The lirst
Moor and basement were occupied by the
wholesale wine and liquor firm of B.
Dreyfus & Co., and from the secoud lloor
to the roof R, E. Diets'. & Co., carried on
the manufacture ot metal lamps, lan?
terns, oil. and gas stoves. This concern
has a branch in Chicago.
Adjoining the building on the west,
which extends back, forming an" "L"
around it, is the United States bonded
warehouse of Walker iS; Williams. Hun?
dreds of barrels of spirits and whiskey
are stored in the warehouse, and the fire?
men kept their attention toward this
building and prevented its catching fire.
The second lloor of the buildiutr burned
was utilized as (he oflice of R. E. Dietz
& Co.. the third;floor was the shippimr de?
partment, the fourth lloor was the pack?
ing department, the fifth floor was the
japan mm: und painting department, and
the two top Moors were occupied by the
soldering and machinery department.
One hundred and fifteen hands were em?
ployed by the concern, and of l-this num?
ber fifteen were yountr women and girls.
How the fire started is not known. I*.
broke out on the third lloor in a small
storaue room. The first intimation was
at 1 :'??"> p. m., when the autumatlc fire
signai sounded. Then smoke was seen
coming out of the storage room, and the
alarm was given to the workmen and
women in the building. The young wo?
men became pantostrickeu. The police
were notified, and an alarm turned in,
and soon engines were hastening to the
spot. Then iretcctives, who were in the
neighborhood, saw sniokeTcoming out of
the wiudows on the. third floor. A num?
ber of girls wejre at the windows on the
third and fourth lloors at this time,
screaming and" threatening to jump, out
into the street. The detectives shouted
for them not to jump, and 'then all three
of them ran into the building, and aller
much difliculty succeeded in getting all
of the women down to the street by wav
of the stairs and elevator.
The fire spread with alarming rapidity,
and dense smoke soon filled the street to
hamper the firemen in their work. The
water tower was put into use and poured
hundreds of tons of water into the build?
ing, while a dozen large streams were be?
ing thrown by the engines. 'The fames
soon reached the fifth and sixth floors,
where the varnish, oils, and rosin were
stored, and then greatly increased in
volume. The halters of horses in an ad?
joining stable were "lit and they were
driven Into the street, where they ran
wildly about, scattering people in every

were marched into the main room whore
the principal kept them quiet for a time
by telling them stories. The whistlluK
of the engines and ringing of bells was
finally too much for them and they be?
came uneasy. Then they were ordered to
rise and sing "America." They drowned
out the noise made by the firemen.
It was said that the fire had Its origin
in an over-heated gas stove, but the re?
port coulel not be confirmed.
This evening the police roughly esti?
mate the loss as follows: R. K. Dietz &
Co., '?100,000; B. Dreyfus & Co.. $20,000,
and damage to building. $72,000. These
estimates will probably be increased.

FOR MR. BRYAN.
Des Meines, In.,-June 24.?The Demo?
cratic State convention adjourned early
this evening, having completed its work.
The two ullle'i conventions, the silver
Republicans and Populists, completed
their work slight'y in advauce. * The
three tactions were, after much contro?
versy, able to agree on one platform, with
free sliver as the main idea, and one
ticket, composed of two Democrats, two
silver Republicans and one Populist. The
ticket will be placed on the official ballot
under the name "Democrat." When
this becamo known there was a split in the
Populist convention, the middle-of the
road faction, under the leadership of A.
C. Weeks, walking o"t. The seceders
numbered probably ICO of the delegates.
Gen. J. B. Weaver's faction remained
with the Democrats, whereupon he was
bitterly denounced. But for this iupture
the union of all the free silver forces
would have been complete.
The ticket is composed as follows:
Governor?F. E. White, (Democrat),
Lieutenant Governor?B. A. Plummer,
(Silver Kepublicar), Winnefcago county.
Juduo Supreme Court?L. G. Kinne
(Democrat, for Bryan), Polk county.
