Jim Iliting's store at Shannon was broken into last night, I and a considerable amount of flour, cof fee and sugar was stolen. The vigilants were out in search of the thieves early this morning, and traced them a consider able distance by flour along the road. One of the sacks had broken open. It was learned later that Jim Conway, a colored Atchison miner, was the thief, and that he was hiding on tha island above town. A posse composed of SherilT Larkin, Chief White, several. oflicers, and a num ber of Shannon peoples, went after him. They caught sight . i Conway in a lot of underbrush, and chaaed him. He jumped on a log, and floated out into tho river. Evidently it was his intention to get to the Missouri side, and Tom Clark, on a horse, rushed to the bridge, and crossing summoned a crowd of Last Atchison men, who went up the river to prevent him from landing. They told Conway that they would hang him if he came to the Missouri side. The police on the other sido also threatened to shoot, and Conway gave himself up. he swam to the Kansas shore. He was then taken to the county jail, where ho now is. Two shots were tired at Conway by farmers as he disappeared over the river blulf, and oflieers shot at him while he was in the river, to make him come in. He wh3 nearly frozen when he landed. Conway has served a term in the penitentiary. KNOCKED IOWN AND ROBBED. h M. Williams Itobheil of $S0 in Kock Isl and Yards at Hutchinson. Hutchinson, Sept. 25. F. M.

ALLISON ON FREE COINAGE. The Iowa Senator Thinks It Would Brio; a Calamity. Atlantic, Ia., Sept. 25. Senator Alli son was greeted by an audience of 1.000 people at the opera house last evening. Tho senator held the attention of his audience closely throughout, and was frequently applauded. On the money question Senator Allison said: "We have now more money in the country per capita than at any prior time in our history. It is claimed free coin age is needed in the United States. This is believed by some Republicans, many Democrats and all Populists, but the Populists believe this as an incident, not as a reality. I would be glad to have free coinage of silver, were it not for the fact that I think I know that great calamities and great dis tress would follow. The tirst effect of free coinage would be to carry gold to a premium and to taue the $(Ui,00Q,0 j0 of gold out of the United States. "The value of $0d0,OU0,0o0 of silver now in circulation would be diminished to about $240,000,000. Mexico has free coinage of silver aud gold and has a pro duction of $35,000,000 to 4U.OOO,000 sil ver a year, but altogether has a silver circulation of about $50,000,000. The bulk of Mexico's silver is market ed in bullion at tho markets of the world. The present Repub lican policy is that we shall not change our standard, but use all the silver we can, maintaining the standard. By not changing our standard we are enabled to hold our gold and the vast amount of $600,000,000 of silver at par with gold In the iinancial panic of 1S03 there was never a time when the silver dol lar of the United States was not at par. Therefore, our Populist friends, rather than endure the ills they now bear, want free coinage, while we know that free coinage will be followed by disaster and distress of every interest in the land." 3I0TILERS' CON VOCATION. The Training: of Children and Hearing- of liahies is Hiscussed. Chicago, Sept. 25. At the initial ses sion of the national gathering known as the Mothers' Convocation at the kinder garten, a large audience was addressed by W. . Jaggard, who spoke on pa rental influences. Dr. Norman Bridge followed with a lecture on babies' food. Mrs. Crounse, president, stated that the object in calling the congress there was a desire to secure well directed training for the children who are some day to be citizens. 1 he influence of the mothers upon the natiou wus a wonder ful one, she si.id, and k inderrzarten meth ods in home training would result in in estimable good. THE GIRL WAS DISMISSED. Daughter of Millionaire Ells u orthCharged With Forgery Let tio. Chicago, Sept. 25. The charge of forgery against Caroline Ellsworth, daughter of the Milwaukee millionaire, Isaac Ellsworth, was nolle prossed today. Miss Ellsworth was charged by several Chicago merchants with obtaining goods with forged checks. The case is said to have been settled outside the courts by the iriri's father. Ellsworth who is highly educated and refined in appearance, is said to have been arrested on similar charges iu Kansas City and other places. CAN T 11 II A S 1 1T A M 31 A N i. Dr. I'arkhurst Says They Can He lSeaten Out of rsiht on Election Day. New York, Sept. 25. Dr. Charles II. Parkhurst tired another broadside at Tammany hall last night at the Second Reformed Presbyterian church. Among some of the things he said, were: 'I think we can thrash Tammany out of sight on election day. There is only one obstacle, the failure of anti-Tammany organizations to agree. "The city of New York is at present the most phenomenal in the world. The recent outbreak of crime is unparalleled. The spirit of anarchy is abroad. There is such a disregard for all police regula tions by the force as should make us blush, if we do not tremble. "Superintendent Byrnes has always told us that whatever else might be wronjj, our streets at least are safe for citizens to walk through. Is it necessary to speak of recent events to disprove this? If Superintendent Byrnes was to step squarely to the front and say: 'I am going to take up the obligations that de volve upon me, and if I am interfered with 1 will make it known to the com munity,' I believe the response will not be wanting. If Superintendent Byrnes does not soon ta,ke this position his op portunity will be lost." PUGS AT NEW ORLEANS. The Everhardt -Abbott Fight Promises Nothing Hut Slugging. New Orleans, Sept. 25.

President Have niyer of the American Sugar company has issued orders for the closing down at once of half of the refineries under its control and next week the rest of the re fineries will be ordered to shut down. This action is taken because of the large amount of refined sugar on hand, and also, it is said, because of the opera tion of the new tariff. Doesn't Fidct the Jer. Morgan fi ei.d. Ky., Sept. 25.

Democratic Convention. Blames the Republicans With All the Countrv"s Troubles. PREMATURE BOASTS. The Unterrified Democracy He Says Isn't Alarmed. The Effrontery of Its Adversar ies is Wonderful. Saratoga, N. Y., Sept. 25. A cold bracing atmosphere, a few drops of rain followed by sunshine greeted the dele gates to the Democratic state convention this morning. Everybody was astir. This morning trains brought large con tingents to swell the .crowd. Hotel cor ridors and streets were full and at the Grand Union where Democratic head quarters are established there was a great crowd The streets were lively all night, march ing crowds of boomers shouting at the top of their lungs, made the night and most of the early morning hideous for those who wished to sleep. Senator Hill was an early riser and when the tirst contingent of leaders went into the din ing room about 8:30, they were told that Senator Hill had eaten his breakfast at 7 o'clock. From that time on till almost noon he sat behind closed doors, refusing to see even the leaders and announcing to all comers that he was busy preparing his remarks as temporary chairman. From ail indications it is evidently the inten tion of the leaders to formulate no slate until the organization of the committee. The Whitney boom still retains its prominence, and there is evidently a de sire on the part of the leaders to wait until Mr. Whitney's arrival in New York, or in Saratoga tomorrow, before making a nomination. The Tammany men this morning are unanimous iu their selec tion of Whitney, and the Kings county men, since the withdrawal of Guvnor, show a disposition to follow in Tam many's footsteps, and yet everybody wears such an air of uncertainty that a dark horse might be dropped upon the convention with success at any time. There is also a likelihood this morning that the convention wi'.h the assistance of the galleries may'stampede for Hill, aud in that case the senator would have to do what he has not yet dvme announce pos itively his decision in the matter. Tho Gaynor adherents till claim this morning that Mr. Gaynor' a statement is not to be construed as a declination. They insist that he is in the race with excellent prospects of being nominated. F. S. Coudert. who arrived here this morning, says he thinks Mr. Whitney will make an excellent candidate. Many tire suspicious, however, that Tammany's suppon of the Whitney boom is not sin cere. Arguing that if it were, the state Democracy people would be given seats in the convention, at least iu part. Miss Susan B. Anthony and other women suffragists are here to urge the adoption of the piank in favor of ex tending the ballot to women. Senator Murphy called the convention to order at 1:20. Senator Hill was named for temporxry chairman amid intense enthusiasm. Senator Hill's Speech. Mr. Hill said: "The unterrified Dem ocracy of tliH empire state are assembled here today undismayed at the premature boasts and assumed confidence of our adversaries. "We are not unaccustomed to their annual and moss-covered game of politi cal bluff, although this year with extra ordinary vehemence and unblushing efirontry. "If vain boasts alone couid bring vic tory their battle is indeed won before it is actually commenced; but we beg to remind that there has hot been a cam paign iu this state during the past twelve years, when they did not assume iu Aug ust and September that they had carried it, when in truth during that whole per iod, with a single exception victory has perched upon our banners on the first Tuesday of November in each year. We win our victories on election days and not by exhuberant bravado in convention hallf.. "The unexuected victory of our oppo nents last fall has turned their heads and rendered them arrogant and opinionated. They fail to recall tha fact that the total vote polied was nearly 300,000 short of the full vote of the state, a victory which they themselves did not anticipate, and which their surprised and astute leaders the next day alter election humorously attributed to divine providence and not to Republican strength. "With a united battery and united vote. New York is still a Democratic state if we are true to ourselves, will this yeiir resume her place in the Democratic column. Our opponents by a vigorous beating of bogus political torn toms and tiie insistence upon petty aud misleading local issues, seek to divert the public at tention from the unenviable record which they made during their recent four year's control of the federal government. "The people, however, have not for gotten the fact that it was a Republican administration which iu that ill-fated year of ISiJO, saddled the country with unwise and vicious legislation which has since crippled its prosperity, endangered its finances and augmented its public burdens." The convention adjourned at 2:33 p. m. to meet tomorrow at noon in the Rink. For Over fifty Year Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup has been used for teething.

Theakston has a daughter named Pearl, and she has a lover named George Scheck. He also has a wife and eon named Austin. Yesterday tho whole family turned up in the probate court, the cause of it all being that George wanted to marry Pearl, and Pearl's father, who now lives in Kansas City didn't want him to. Austin took a hand on George's side, and there was a very animated conversa tion for a few moments, during which all the family jangles for years past came to the surface. It was charged that Papa Theakston had not supported his family and that he had abandoned them. This he said waa not true; that he had been driven out aud they wouldn't let him back. The judge thought the young folks could stand it a day longer aud so he had the case continued till this morning. When this morning arrived the judge waited, but as none of the parties inter ested got around for trial, he has good reasons for believing the couple nave gone to Missouri and had the knot tied there.

The open ing of the German-American Catholic ! congress was favored this morning by a j clear sky and bracing atmosphere.

The Asscmhly Itoom Already C rowded -The Class iu Cireek Has 40 lcnili'is. When tho school board iu planning for the new high school decided on heats for 400 pupils they thought they wero reserving space enough for many terms to come. They evidently calculated poorly, however, for today the enroll ment is 401, including the nine post graduates, and every one of tho neat iu the assembly rooin is takon. llm facilities of the high school are not crowded, but they are comfortnUy filled and it appears almost certain that it will not be long until additional space hi needed. The pupils are getting used to their palatial new quarters. For tin tirst day or two there was considerable trouble caused by the pupils wandering into tho wrong roam, and cases of getting lost were numerous. Each room is known by its number and theae numbers were painted on tho outside of tho doors. Tho days were warm and the doors wero left open so that the numbers could not bo seen, which accounted for many of the blunders. Since then however tho num bers have been placed on both the insido and the outside of the doors, Tho janitors, too, arc just getting edu cated up to their new quarters, and aro becoming experienced enough to hundlo the intricacies of tho ten big Smoad fur naces. Last Friday the hot-air current wa3 turned ou in every room i:i tho building, and the registers were like a breath from the dragons that guard tho bottomless pit. The class iu Greek languages, which was talked about at tho last meoting of the board, has keen organize 1. Ttu-ro are twenty in the class, and Miss Ewiiitr, who knows more Greek than some peo ple do English, will teach it. Hereafter public rhetorical will bo made more a matter of class pride than society patriotism. The two societies, the Philomathean and Anthenaeum, wiil continue to exist, but tho various classes will be assigned rhetorical days instead of the numerous divisions of the two societies. The exorcises will probably be in the forenoon instead of the after noon. TODAY'S MARlllTFlTE VDllT. Furnished by th Ancitd I'ress t til t fttate Jdurnal. Chicago, Sept. 25.
