County Physician Douo hue mado an oxaminntion yesterday of tho body, and he found that tho girl would hnvo become a mother within three or four months. None of tho girl's family knew of this 6tato of affairs, but the re sponsibility for the girl's condition is said to rest upon Axel Peterson, a former brakoman on tho Lehigh Valley road, who was a lover of the girl. Homo months ngo Petprson, who Is 28 years old. mot with an accident on tho rail road, which loft him a cripple for lifo.

Two months ago ho left for tho Wost and he Is said to have gone to Chicago. Ho Is said also to have been soon around Perth Am boy again lutelr. although Mary did not seo him. according to those of her friends who knew her intimately. The description of tho smooth-faced man with a blue shirt as given by thoPeiser boy ogreos In a general way with Peterson's description, and thorearo thoso who believo that ho had a part in tho girl's death out of motives ot revenge. The feeling ovortho murder In Porth Amijoy Is running very high., and thero was a great deal of talk In the town yestorday of lynching the murderers if the7 werocaught.

It was n nondescript face. It had lllalno's crown, but thu noso was Molvlnloy's. Tho thinness of tho hair BUggcMod Illnlne, and the chin was lllalneV. but thn noso nnd oyes wero distinctly Mi'Klnley's.

Tho llunl olTntt of tlio iilmblo-flngrroil Now Yorker hnd failed, nud tho antl-llarrlson leaders wont to bed feeling that thoy had wasted a week's tlmo to seo lllalno's faco mnterlnllzo on tholr political tablets. In this condition of mind thn fercos that aro nrrayod against tho President wont to tho Convention hnll this morning. Tho Hnrrlson pooplo went there In n vory different mood, conlhlont that thoy had the host of It, perhaps a llttlo too cotilldont. Hut thnt remains to bo testod by tlmo. It was tho first brilliantly clear day. and tho wcathor tompted to tho hall n greater number of porsons than ever Went to It beforo. Its capacity fur seating 11,000 persons was ovnrstralned, and it Is calculated thnt at least n thousand porsons wero crowded out and wont back to tho city across tho river, disap pointed nnd on tho verge of sunstroko. for tho alluring sunshine provod hot enough to mnko tho Georgia delegates fancy themsolvos back in tho cotton bolt. Tho dlsappolntmont of those to whom ad mission wns denied wns slight us oomparod with that of thomultltudo that succeedod In getting In. for tho Convention did not sit llvo mlnutos, nnd the people who did not under btnnd parllntueutnry proceedings no sooner sat down than they saw tlio thousands getting up and going out. Tho reason was that theio had boen an ngrcoment between tho oppo blllon forces that tho Committeo on Cre dentials nocd not report to tho Conven tion until 8 o'clock to-night. As it Isaruloof tho Convention that thoro shall be no prococdlngs until tho contests In tho dele gations aro settled, tliero was nothing to do buturijoum. Ouranclent statesmnn. "Kitting Hull L-iwton," who has always boon a fighter at homo nnd wnntod to light this morning, loudly cnllod for a dlUslon. When he saw that a great majority of tho delegates favorod the ndj'ournment. tho fight all went out ot him. and ho sat down with tho remark, "I guess I ain't in it." Hols, next to Ancient Mariner Thompson, tho olib'st man in tho Convention, nnd hns passod his 80th year, though no ono would dream It from looking at either his faco or his llguro. Thon camo tho Harrison round-up, nnd tho branding of all tho steers and mavericks who aro for tho President in all tho delegations. Whoever was responsible for this masB moot ing of the President's forces deserves credit for good politics, as the now wont out ftiat over (!C0 men rospondod to the call to meet in the Market Hall, and that a counting of actual noses by tho lendors from all the States showed Harrison to bo ablo to count on 5'-'0 votes. Tho atmosphoro of tho Conven tion boenmo mucli clearer than it had boen at anytime. Tho news of Harrison's jubilation camo upon tho crowds right after the ex posure of tho fact that tho antl-Adralnlstr.i-tion people had practically abandonod their magical man ot Malno over night, as collcgo students burn their highest toxt book whon thoy have dono with it. Tho Illnlne Incubus had hung over tho political sky like a great black cloud, for ever threatening to botch forth its lightning' nnd its rain. Hut it was llko that cannon which Artomus Ward built to offer to kill a thousand men nt every pop If any one turned tho handle but tho bundle would not turn. So It was with the Illalno thundor cloud. The nntl-Harrlson rain makers havo been exploding tholr dynnmlto undor It and boating tho air with shouts and band music, but tho rain would not fall, and llnnlly tho determlnod brocr.o from tho camp blew the big and empty clouds away.and left only two posslblo storm borders in tho sky, ono cloud that takes tho form ot McKIn loy's faco. and which lookod to be full ot mis chief, and ono thin, ragged, almost trans parent little speck, which attracts only tho at tention of thn Michigan mon, who mo deluded witli tho idea that It is tho forerunner of an Algortorapest. Thero woro two features of tho short fosslon of tho Convention which keenly dlsappolntod the gathorlns. One was tho failure of tho maungeiH lo call on some noted publlo man for a speorh. Tho peop'o. of whom thoro aro ut loast 3r,000 hero, regard tho Convention merolyas n show, und as many of them havo to pay from tliroo to flvo dollars to got Into tho hall, they want their money's wot th. The other source of disappointment was tho fnlluro of tlio Administration pooplo to forco a light and bring out the voto prepar atory to buttle, as tho politicians do In the New York County Conventions, by taking an in formal ballot. The reason that thoru was no nt tempt to wrost tho management from tlio llhiino-tinfturi'dNutlonal Committee wns.thut both eldes had come to nin agroemont. Tho point of disagreement was the Committeo on Credentials. This commlttoo has changed Its comploxlon uwryday. Flrit, owing to theabsonciiof Fomo lllnlno men, it voted forllarri-on delegates-. lib action wns recon-lilored tho next day when thu lllnlno members wore preeont In full strength. To day tho Hurrison forces captured threo ltlulno men. ono of tliem being tho Utah delegato who man led Mr. lllalno's niece. Out of all this confusion has enmo at least temporary har mony. Tho Harrison mon aro in tho ma jority In tho committeo, but in ordnr to gain credit ns being fnlr and impartial thoy hnvo Heated tho Kellogg faction in Louisiana, closing their door ngalnst tholr own chlwilibj Wnimoih. In return tho lllnlno mon havo corroded that their contest In I'tah was bnsod on nn tiiiti'iiallo position, nnd. with thlb si irlt of harmony ruling, tho Convention took tho courso that hns boon roported.
