TTTO wmrrrrrn . n. r L.nAi fmlt. finer crackers, pre- The couuty democratlo central com mittee met in Columbus last Satur day and decided to hold the conven tion on the 6th of September. As to putting out a couuty ticket or not, there was a free expression of sen timent, says the Star Courier, but as the committee had no authority to take any action in the matter, it was left to bo decided, as it should be, by the convention. If the convention, when it meets, shall decide not to pnt out a ticket, It will amount, practically to an lndrosement or the people s ticK et. But if the convention shall uomi nate a ticket, or a part of one, it will ha led to do so from the consideration that the party lias nothing to surren der, and from the additional consider ation that the people's convention did not pnt out an all-round strong one This is what may be gathered from the proceedings. We cannot advise further than to say that all people fa voring good government and feeling the importance of united action, may do will to lay aside minor objections, at times, and work together against oppression and misrule. The stockholders of the Galena, Guthrie and Western railroad corapa uy held their annual meeting for the election of a board of directors in this city Wednesday evening, August 13 Charles P. Huntington of New York, Alexander Warner or Connecticut, Wm. B. Stone, Daniel C. Finn, Samuel H. Smith, A. D. C. Harvey. O. J. Nichols, W. H. Cogshall, E. C. Scam mon and J. r. Campbell of Kansas, and D. AI. Ross of Oklahoma were elected directors for the ensuing year. The board of directors organized by the flection of Col. Alexander Warn er president, Daniel C. Finn vice pres ident, u. J. Nichols secretary and col. W. B. Stone treasurer. The road will be built in the near future. On Tuesday evening the remaining members of the onco proud order of Rangatoo Guards met at their usual trysting place and conveyed the re mains of their once proud chieftain, the Oriental High Priest Mclchisedec, to the tomb. In doing so they passed by the Springs hotel where a very appro- plate farewell serenade to County At torney Ashley was given, led by the stentorian voice of C. W. Daniels with bass drum and tiu horn accompanl ments. It was an eccentric affair in deed a funeral at night, with 56 large tears containing a quart each and numerous ones or a less size. On Wednesday last a very large piece of rich jack or zinc ore was broken loose in the drift of the M. W. Smith shaft at Peoria. It was est! mated that the piece as loosened would weigh 1,500 pounds. It was entirely too large to be taken out whole and a pop snot was put into it to break it up small enough for handling. This shaft now presents a face of rich jack about three feet deep and fourteen feet wide, which is growing larger as it gets farther under the hill. Other pros pects are looking better and better, aud the town is going ahead. Reuben Turner requests us to state that on or about last Saturday H. H. Curtis and J. W. Smith, two reputable citizens of this town, held him up on the high way in broad day light and feloniously robbed him of a genuine original package containing a hair pint, more or less. To save fur ther trouble said robbers had better return said package to said innocent purchaser immediately. Farmers should plow their wheat and oats stubble ground at the earliest possible moment after the grain is stacked and then the soil will be in condition for seeding at the proper time. This is an important feature of the Mennouites' plan of raising wheat and they never fall, eveu in Jiansas. Th Chief of the, Raugatoo. By order of the next grand officer la command, the Captain of the Rangatoo Guards has called upon all worthy mombers to assemble at the nsnal place, at the usual hoar, to take part iu the ceremony of embalming our Grand Oriental High Priest, of tne Ancient Order of Melchisedec, who is to be embalmed by Prof. Wm. Woodrnm, late from the Hong Eong Islands. Sahacradab, Scribe. Old Spanish The Seneca Dispatch aays that Clark & Sherer are re-opening the old Span ish mines, where report says rich sil ver was found years ago. The shaft runs in benches, one every seven feet, like steps. In cleaning ont this old shaft a singular mining implement like a poker with a chisel blade on the lower end was fonnd at a depth of 12 feet a shovel at 13 feet and a mattock at 14 feet These mines are on the ridge one mile sooth of Warren's branch, one and a half miles west of the state line, one mile east of Peoria and seven miles north of Seneca, A TERKlBLK ELECTRIC HTOIDf. Probably tho most severe electrld storm ever witnessed in this city pass ed oyer a section of coantry several miles in width on either side of Bait ter Springs Wednesday night A boa J 5 o'clock a small unpretentious cloud made its appearance in the northwest' cm sky, and now and then a burst of thunder could be heard. It was evU dent that we would get a shower, but some thought not. The cloud kepi growing, however, and the thunder and lightning became more severci About 7 o'clock a heavy shower with very sharp lightning and thunder Eassed over during which the large am of H. R. Crowell near his resi- deuce on south Military street, was struck by lightning and during the heaviest of the rain burned to thfl ground. This storm then subsided for a time bat was succeeded about 10 o'clock by a much heavier one accompanied by a M ron g wind aud fierce lighttiingi During this part of the storm the resi dence of Shelby Johnson was struck by lightning and parts of it consider' ably shattered. The members of the family were all safely housed in the cyclone cellar a few feet from the house, and escaped any serious shock from the stroke. The M. E. church steeple waa also struck, and the southeast corner of the spire considerably splintered, but for tunately the building escaped being ig niiea, wnicn wonia nave been a terri ble calamity. The electric sparks and balls of fire could be seen dancing all around in the vicinity of Neosho and Military streets, and it so happened that a load peal of thunder caused J. M. Brewster to go into his store, when be discovered it to be full of smoke and a smouldering lire within. The electric lamps had been burned out by tne neavy charges of electricity carried along the wires, but be soon found that the fire was in a box of axle grease which was removed from the building, and a disastrous fire probj ably thus averted. A large tree by tho side of A. M. Peake & Co's. store building was ta ken a p by the roots and twisted about in a very peculiar way. Many of the electric lamps and apparatus were ruined by the storm. In the country Mr. G. H. Beau lost four bead of cattle which came in con tact with a barb wire during the ttorm, and Mr. Wellman living in Quaker valley lost a very fine horse by a stroke of lightning. It wonld seem that barb wire fences are not the safest things to tie to In an electric storm, as we learn from parties who came ur the lane in the territory during the storm that the wire fences presented an almost continuous stream of fire which ran back and forth along the feuce on either side of the lane in a most awe-inspiring manner.
