Blannfactarers of Open Hearth Steel
Form a Combination.
riTTSBURG, Aug. 2S.-The Fost to-morrow
will say: The meeting of the billet
pool at Cresson was largely attended by
the principal manufacturers of the country,
was very harmonious and its business was
completed within half an hour. As a result
of the meeting the manufacturers of open
hearth steel have formed a pool within the
billet pool to be conducted In the same
manner as the Bessemer pool. A price of
$22.25, delivered at Pittsburg, was estab
lished, hvhlch la $2 a ton higher than the
Bessemer price. The firms manufacturing
open-hearth steel are among the largest in
the country, and they were obliged to take
this action in order to preserve the Besse
mer association. Some months ago the
Bessemer billet pool was formed to estab
lish the price of $20.25. but no selling re
striction wag placed on open-hearth steel.
Some of the large manufacturers cut the
price of open hearth to about the same
figures as Bessemer sold for, thus taking
from the small firms in the pool all busi
ness because they could not make open
hearth steel. These firms insisted on a
differential being established so that open
hearth would not be preferred to Bessemer.
By the formation of the new pool this
differential Is established and smooth sail
ing is promised for the future. The price
of $;.U25 for Bessemer billets was re
affirmed. Another meeting will be held In.

The Fire-Swept Totrn In Control of
Drunken Hoodlums.
MILWAUKEE. Wis.. Aug. 28. A dis
patch from Ontonagon, Mich., to-night
savs that fires broke out this afternoon
and. fanned by high winds, threatened to
destroy the temporary buildings and tents
as well as the few structures that escaped
the conflagration of Tuesday. Several hun
dred men battled the flames for hours and
finally fought them back. The situation at
Ontonagon, outside of the destitution and
suffering, Is described as serious. In dig
ging in the ruins of burned saloons large
quantities of liquor were found and scores
of men became Intoxicated. To-day this
element has ruled affairs with a high hand
and other citizens aro in terror of life and
property. The hoodlum element has inter
fered with the distribution of relief sup
plies and so serious has the situation be
come that the relief committee determined
on calling on the Governor for troops to
do guard duty. The confusion is so great
that there is no possibility that the dis
organized local authorities can restore or
der or guarantee protection to the thou
sands who are homeless and unprotected.
At midnight a telegram was received
saying that Rockland, the village south of
Ontonagon, from which relief work at the
burned town has been directed, is threat
ened with destruction by forest fires. The
woods are in flames, and. driven by a high
wh:d. are approaching the suburbs of the
town. A large force of men is fighting the

CANTON, O., Aug. 23. A committee rep

Charles Leach, president of the Ohio State
Republican League, was also with the com
mittee. Mr. Goodnoe, of Minneapolis, spoke for
President Woodmansee, of the League, who
cculd not be there. He said:
"Major McKlnley We come to you as the
executive committee of the National
League of Republican Clubs, instructed by
the Milwaukee convention to assure you
that the League cluLs In very State in
the Union are loyal to you anu active iu
their support of the principles for which
you stand. To the end of the campaign you
will find every League man at his pot. do
ing ail in his power for the success of the
ltepublican. party. I do not need to tell
you the details of cur organization. We are
proud of the fact that you have been one
of us and in sympathy with our methods
ever since the organization of the League
in 1SS7. You know, sir, that the National
League is composed of ciubs from every
State. Its active membership at this time
is over 2.00U.0UJ voters. It has ever been
only for the success of the party and its
principles, and has never attempted to In
.terlere with nominations or appointments.
In that sense we are not 'practical polite
"The League Is formed on the fact that
It Is the duty of every citizen to study
public questions, and. having studied them,
it is his privilege to assure in the most
effective way at his command the practical
success of the policies and principles he
deems best for the gcod of the whoie coun
try. Our motto is "Educate and organize.'
It has been the method of the clubs to
f tudy and discuss public questions between
campaigns, to present Republican doctrines
to young men about to cast their first vote,
and to new voters at the time when they
have leisure to study dispassionately. Faith
built. up in this manner and founded on
truth cannot be disturbed by the excite
ment and Impulses of a campaign. Repub
licans so made are Republicans from con
victlon and not easily led astray. They
are stalwart fighting Republicans, for thy
fight for the principles which they earnest
ly believe are essential to the welfare of
the whole people. For the success cf those,
principles they have organized themselves
Into campaign clubs, pledged to work for
the success of the party and its whole tick
et. From these club3 we bring you greet
ing. "You wear upon you coat, sir. the button
of the private who fought not for money
or for glory, but for principle? and the in
tegrity of the Union. We wear the League
button the button of the privates of the
Republican army, fighting to-day. not for
office nor for fame, but for principle ant!
the honor of the Nation. You will remem
ber, sir, how the army looked to General
Grant, their leader, in whom they had im.
pllclt confidence. We. your troops, look to
you as our leader, always in the front of
the fight, never dismayed by reverses, bold,
aggressive and sure to lead us to victory.

plantations of Louisiana, from the groves
of California to the mines and factories ot
West Virginia and New Jersey, wo bring to

factories and Workshops are for McKlnley
and Hobart, for protection and reciprocity,
for sound money and the Nation's honor."
Mr. McKlnley responded as follows:
"Mr. Goodnoe and Gentlemen It is a
great pleasure to greet at my home this
large committee representing the Repub
lican clubs of the United States. I know
something of your worth and work. I
know how, in former campaigns, the splen
did services of the young Republican? of
the country have contributed to bring to
us most signal triumph?;. I am glad to
hear from your spokesman, fresh from vour
national convention, that the Renublican
party and the Republican cause this year
are to have your united, aggressive and un
faltering support, and I am sure that your
support and the support which will comb
from all clasps of our fellow-citizens ev
erywhere will give to the national ticket
and to our party a triumph, the like of
which we have not had for many, many
years. (Applause.)
"We cannot overestimate the value of
the young men in politics, and I would no!
have believed it if Mr. Goodnoe had not
told me that they were not practical poli
ticians. (Laughter.) My experience with
them has been that they have been poli
ticians of the practical sort known in
American politics. Gentlemen, you never
had a worthier cause to strive for than
you have this year. The financial honnr of
the country and the prosperity of all Its
people are enough to Inspire every Amer
ican heart to the best possible f.ffort. (Ap
plause.) I have seen somewhere art in
quiry. 'Cannot the United States establish
a financial system of Its own; Is It too weak
pnd dependent to do that?" I answer, 'The
United States now has a financial policy
which. In the main. It has been pursuing
since the beginning of the government
and which It does not mean to change untii
it can find a better one Those who make
the Inquiry are usually "against or Amcj

A delegation of 300 people from the East

distinguished public services and your ex
alted national ideas. Therefore we are de
lighted to bring you the greetings of our
people and to wish you success."
To this ex-Governor McKlnley replied:
"Bishwp Mills, Ladies and Gentlemen of
the East Ohio Conference of the United
Brethren Church It gives me sincere
pleasure to respond to this call of greeting
and congratulation. I am duly appreci
ative of the message of good will which
you so kindly bring from the. great re
ligious body which you represent. I-. Is a
good omen when religious teachers are
alive to the questions affecting the public
welfare. Nothing is more worthy of your
study and consideration than those ques
tions which tend to make the country
great, prosperous and righteous. Civil
virtue is a good text for the preacher al
ways, but a better thing for every' citizen
to guard In his daily life. Good citizenship
lies at the foundation of our true greatness
as a free government. Those who proclaim
it aro indeed Christian teachers and pub
lic benefactors. The better the citizen the
better a free government and Its laws, it
Is a gratifying fact, aa you state, that In
our form of government character counts
for so much. The lack of It amounts to
almost a disqualification for public trust.
Whatever men's Individual opinions on
moral questions are, or may be. whether
good or bad: whatever may be their party
affiliations, all prefer that public officials
shall be of high character and worth. They
may be heedless of virtue and careless In
their own lives, but they Insist that those
who are to execute the. public will shall
be men of unquestioned Integrity. Public
opinion demands this, and all the political
parties respect it. I wish for every re
ligious body and every olhr agency whose
object is to elevate mankind the fullest
measure of success. No nobler cause could
engage your faculties. I trust that your
annual conference here will be productive
of good, and that your say here will bring
pleasure to you, as I am sure It has
brought pleasure to our peopl and to our
city. I will be glad to meet and greet each
one of you who have honored me to-day.
and I thank you over and over again for
tho courtesy and compliment of this call."
(Great applause.)
To-morrow promises to be one of the
busiest days yet for Mr. McKlnley. Five
delegations aro scheduled to arrive here
during the day. The first delegation will

will be received about 10:30 a. m. Then

The Pltehforkcr Challenge General
llnrrlnon to Joint Debate.
Preclal to the Indianapolis Journal.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 23. Senator Till
man, of South Carolina, has telegraphed to
ex-President Harrison, at New York, chal
lenging him to joint debate. The dispatch
was sent from, here this morning, as the
Senator passed through at 11 o'clock. It is
as follows:
"Hon. Benjamin Harrison. New York City:
"I have Just spent a week in Pennsyl
vania, speaking to many thousands, lour
speech In New York last night attacks me
specifically, and I wou'd be pleased to
irtct you in joint debate before a Northern
audience, preferably at Indianapolis.
It Is not believed at Republican head
quarters that ex-President Harrison will
pay any attention to the absurd challenge.
Mr. Tillman is billed to speak at Indian
apolis, and he is shrewd enough to see that
a joint debate with Mr. Harrison would in
sure him a prominence that would make
his appearance 'on the same platform with
the ex-President a national event. It Is
not believed very generally that Mr. Till
man Is acting under Instructions from the
Democratic national committee in this mat
ter. Senators Jones and Faulkner have no
sympathy with Tillman nor with the tone
of his speeches. They believe that he Is
doing more harm than good, and that his
violent and inflammatory harangues will
alarm conservative voters and drive away
more wavering men than they will gain.
They know ex-President Harrison's ability
as a speaker and as a debater, and they
recognize that In a joint debate with him
Mr. Tillman would be overwhelmingly over
matched and the Democratic ticket irre
trievably damaged in Indiana.
Jnt Listen to the "Thunderer."
LONDON. Aug. 2S. Commenting on the
letter of acceptance written by Major Mc
Klnley, the Times this morning says: "Ma
jor McKinley seems to hope to atone by the
vigor of his language for his long silence,
but his coinage statement has a curiously
second-hand ring about it. One cannot help
askinff why he never before opened his
mouth in defense of sound financial doc
trine. He almost suggests that he has one
eye to future dealings with sllverite elect
ors and a sllverite majority in the Senate."
In conclusion, the Times Intimates that
McKlnley may depend upon the free-silver
majority In the Senate for assistance in
carrying out his tariff policy.

John Gilbert Shanklln Talks Rnther
Plainly About the Turning:
Dotrn of Gorrunn.
Shanklln Says Leon Dalley Will Not
.Get on the National Cum
palirn Committee.
Senators Teller and Dubois Anions
Those Selected to 'Assist In Con
ducting; Bryan's Campaign.
John Gilbert Shanklln, of Evansvllle, In
diana member of the Democratic national
committee, that is the commit
tee headed by Jones, arrived In
the city yesterday on his way
from the New York to the Chicago head
quarters. Incidentally he talked rather
plainly about affairs in the committee. He
was asked concerning the story sent out
from this city a few weeks ago about the
shelving of Gorman and when he asked
for particulars, he was told that th story
went that Stone and others had objected
to the idea of placing Gorman at the head
of the campaign committee because a num
ber of Western State conventions had cen
sured him and he was generally believed
to represent "the money power" In the
"That was the feeling In the committee
at its New York meeting," replied Mr.
Shanklln. "It would have been a fatal
mistake to place him at the head of the
committee. It would have lost us thou
sands and tens of thousands of votes
throughout the South and West. Gorman
Is not at all In sympathy with the genius
of this campaign. Why, at the New York
meeting he made a defense of Senator
Smith, of New Jersey. O'Donnell. of Colo
rado, made a statement that Smith, who
is the New Jersey member of the national
committee and chairman of the New Jersey
State committee, had gone to Europe and
had not even been present to call the State
convention. O'Donnell named an excellent
gentleman from New Jersey and asked that
the committee accept him to represent
New Jersey at least until Smith should re
turn, but Gorman arose, and made a de
fense of Smith."
"Who will be chairman of Mr. Jones's
campaign committee?" was asked.
"Governor Stone, of Missouri, will be the
chairman," replied Mr. Shanklln.
Governor Stone, it will be remembered,
was one of the steering committee of five
in charge of the silver forces at Chicago
and the friends of Bland openly and fre
quently accused him of caring more for
the interests of the senatorial syndicate
than for those of his candidate. In fact It
was charged frequently during the con
vention that he was putting a knife under
Bland's ribs whenever he could conven
iently do so, and since the convention, it
has been charged that he was for Bryan
right along. His appointment as chairman
of the campaign committee is very likely
to imbue the friends of Gorman with the
belief that he had his own Interests in
mind when he objected so strenously and
so successfully to the appointment of Gor
man. Turning to Joseph T. Fanning, candidate
for State Auditor on the Popocratic ticket.
Mr. Shanklin did some more tailing.
"What is Leon O. Bailey charging around
so wildly to get on that national campaign
committee for?" he aaked.
"I didn't know he was so wild about It,
replied Mr. Tanning.
"Why, yes he is." said Mr. Shanklln.
"He has been writing letters. I received
one from him myteelf asking me to have
Jones appoint him and I got a telegram
from Matthews to the tame effect. What
he wants to be on there for is more than
I can understand. There Is nothing in it
but work. I had a letter from Jones the
other morning. He is not going to appoint
Bailey nor anybody else from Indiana. He
has stated that whoever be might choose
for this commltteo would be expected to
give his whole time to the work and pay
his own expenses. Under those conditions
I cannot see why Bailey would want on
the committee."
"I think the chances for Bry'an's elec
tion could not be better." said Mr. Shank
lln. "I have Just come from Evansville on
my way to Greenfield, where I will give
them free silver to-morrow night. I have
not yet fully read MeKlnley's letter of ac
ceptance, but from a cursory glance I
think It shows some ability such .as Mc
Klnley Is capable of. I think there is no
doubt that this State will be carried by
tho straight Democratic free-silver ticket
bv a heretofore unknown majority. I say
this because it could not be otherwise, ex
cept by a reversal of conditions and that
is not probable with the present feeling
induced by hard times throughout the
country. Times are getting harder. A man
wakes up in the morning and feels that

"What effect do you think the gold con

"I do not consider the convention to be
of any importance, except to help get votes
for the party and keep It together, where
as they might otherwise be cast for Mc
Kinley. You see there are some people who
wouldn't vote for free fllver under any
circumstances. I have no doubt but that
the convention will put candidates in the
field and It Is my opinion that General
Bragg, of Wisconsin, may head their ticket,
with General Buckner. of Kentucky, as
candidate for Vice President, though Lou's

man Hush A. DInsmore. of the Fifth Ar
kansas district and ex-United States min
ister to Corea, waa mobbed at & political
speaking at Englantlne. Van Buren county.
Wednesday, and sustained Injuries which
will confine him to his bod for some time
to come. The Congressman was roughly
handled, and but for the Interference of
friends he would probably have suffered
much worse Injuries. DInsmore was re
cently renominated for a third term In
Congress and has been stumping hi. dis
trict. He spoke at Englantlne Wednesday
and didtved time with Jerry Scanlan. a
local Populist candidate. Van Buren Is a
rural mountain county and the audience
was In sympathy with Scanlan. During a
heated discussion the speakers became in
volved in a personal altercation and the
crowd mobbed the Congressman.
Mr. DInsmore had finished his speech and
taken his seat and Scanlan. a Populist,
was addressing the crowd. In the course
of his speech Scanlan called DInsmore a
liar, whereupon the Congressman struck
Scanlan in the faco. Immediately four of
Scanlan's friends attacked Dinsraore and
knocked him to the ground. While some of
them beat him in the face with their fists
others kicked him in the ribs ar.d Jumped
upon him with heavy boots. Mr. Dins
more was powerless against the assault
and before his friends could get to him he
was almost insensible. A physician dressed
Mr. Dlnsmore's wounds and he was taken
to Clinton, where he will be confined to
his room for several weeks.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2S.-As a result of
the determination among Populist leaders
to notify Bryan and Watson of their nomi
nation by tho Populists the formal letters
of notification are now being prepared. The
notifications will probably occur at Lincoln
and at Atlanta, but the details aro subject
to tho wishes of the members of the com
mittee on notification, of which Senator
Allen Is chairman. He has been In com
munication with Chairman Butler of late
on the question of notification, and theie is
a full understanding between them as to
w hat will be done. The letters now In course
of preparation will be submitted to the no
tification committee for Its approval. If
Its members desire to meet and proceed in
a body to see Messrs. Bryan and Watson,
then such a course will be adopted and a
time set for the visits. It Is felt, however,
that It Is unnecessary and may be Incon
enlent to the committeemen to make the
trip across the country, in which case the
notification will be made by sending a lei
ter to Messrs. Bryan and Watson. .

traveling passenger agent of the Big Four
railway for this district, this forenoon,

little girl aged nine, lying dead in bed.
They had been shot and instantly killed as
they slept. In another part of the house
Mrs. Green, also dead, lay upon the floor
weltering in her own blood. Mrs. Green
had apparently suddenly become crazed in
the night, risen and committed the terrible
crime. She is said to have been addicted
to morphine, Mrs. Green was thirty-five
years old. Mr. Green left the city a week,
ago last Tuesday for a trip to Salt Lake
City with Mr. Lynch, assistant passenger
agent of 'that road.
Mrs. Green recently returned from a trip

v"ery excitable woman and the death of
her sister, it is believed, prayed upon her
B. C. Kelsey, city ticket agent for the
Big Four, is well acquainted with Mr.
Green. Said her "Green has been with the
Big Four for about fifteen years and Is a
most genial, industrious and home-loving
man. Evervbodv likes him. I know most
certainly that It was not due to any act
of his that has caused unhapplness In his
domestic relations anu has led to this
awful tragedy. -Green was here during the
G. A. R. encampment and has many
friends in this city. I was not acquainted
with his wife, nor do I know anything re
garding her. A telegram has Just come in
saying the revolver was found in her hand.
I believe the tragedy was the result of a
period of insanity. I don't know that Green
ever lived In this city."
Attempt to Make Wnpes of Seamen
Payable In Silver.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 23. Concerning the
report that the United States shipping
commissioner at Port Townsend is insert
ing in the shipping articles of American
vessels bound foreign, a clause that wages
of seamen may be paid in silver. Naviga
tion Commissioner Chamberlain says: The
report Is doubtless a mistake for such ac
tion would be clearly Illegal. In 1873 Con
gress took care to protect the wages of
American seamen In foreign trade against
reduction through a depreciated money
standard, foreign or domestic, by providing
that such wages In a foreign port "shall
be paid in gold or its equivalent, without
any deduction whatever, any contract to
the contrary notwithstanding." The law
is Section 4348 of the Revised Statutes.
The Loulslnna Lynching.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2. The State De
partment has received the report of the
Governor of Louisiana on the recent lynch
ing in that State. The report will not be
given out for publication, but will be trans
mitted to the Italian authorities. In a
general way the report state that after a
thorough investigation by the State author
ities no affirmative evidence can be found
that the men lynched were Italian subjects.
It cannot bo learned either that they have
ever taken out American naturalization
papers. The Governor says that every ef
fort is being made by the authorities of
the State to find the perpetrators of the
deed. As the Governor's report does not
appear to mitigate the circumstances of
the affair, there seems to be little doubt
that the United States will have to pay
an indemnity.
