Joseph Tolliver and Richard Shorter, who have been under treatment at Emer gency Hospital for revolver shot wounds received in fights. have been discharged from the hospital. Two white men, Har ry H. Hogentogler and Tracy D. Ben nett, who are alleged to have attempted suicide, are still under the care of physi cians at the same hospital. Tolliver was taken to the hospital April -I. Five shots were fired at him by an other colored man, three of them taking effect. His jawbone was fractured and be had a serious wound in his hip. His other wounds did not amount to much. Brother Accused of Shooting. Shorter was shot by his brother, it is said, following a dispute about a hat, the shooting having occurred on the back porch at their home, 137 Pierce street northwest. Botli men pay dally visits to the hospital, neither having fully recovered. When Shorter was taken to the hos pital his condition was critical and sur geons in attendance doubted if he would recover. He Improved gradually, how ever, and finally the physicians permitted him to go home. Harry Hogentogler, member of the En- ! gineer Corps at the Washington K-y- J racks, shot himself over the >.eart Ihe I night of May 1?, while calling at the house I of Miss Ida Todd, .'15 Q street northwest, having first written a number of would- ! be LMKwell messages. Bullet in His Back. ? It was thought the bullet had lacerated his heart, and his death was expected, but later the surgeons discovered that no vital organ had been touched by the bullet. His condition was critical, how ever, but during the past few days he has been able to sit up and receive callers. The bullet lodged in his back. Tracy Bennett followed the example set by Hogentogler. He went to the Raleigh Hotel instead of to the house of friends, however, wrote several messages to relatives, and shot himself in the re gion of tne heart. He later declared the shooting was accidental. CONTINUES TO IMPROVE. Ex-Senator Wellington, However, Unable to Attend Convention. Spoi-inl l>l*|intr-h 1<> Tlie Slur.

The renomination of Abraharn n was not accomplished without difficult. . and, as Lincoln himself said at the tn^0' ? it is one thins? to nominate and another i to elect." The nomination of Gen. George B McClellan as the democratic candidate against Lincoln in lMit was made with out difficulty, but the same convention that nominated him destroyed hif chances of election by adopting a platform that declared, in effect, "the war is a failure." Lincoln was frankly a candidate for re nomination. and said that he didn t think it was good policy to swap horses in the middle of a stream. He was opposed openly or secretly by nearly every leader of prom inence in the republican party. Seward, Chase and Stanton, whom he had honor ed above all men, despised him for his humble origin and his unpolished man ner; Greeley and Sumner were furious with him because he permitted the war to be fought by soldiers and not from editorial tripi.ds and library desks; Stevens and Wade hated him because he would not aid them in their purpose ut terly to destrov the people of the south as well as the Confederacy; Wendell Phillips and the other abolitionists be lieved him a traitor because he did not at once extirpate slavery. There were few leaders for Lincom, but the plain people he loved so well were for him. and the politicians could not prevail asainst him. And :t must be said that Lincoln himself was something I of a politician. The democratic party had been in power for sixtv vears, and during most of that time it * had been stronger in the north than in the south. Four years, even four years of war. were not sufficient utterly to destroy the democratic organization in the northern states, were not sufficient to pia< e the minority republican party in complete control. * * # Washington's birthday, IMU. the repub lican national committee issued a call for a national con Name "Union Party" mention, and. at , , , Lincoln's s u a - Was Then Adopt6d.e.(1;.j|jII1| a i> a n - doned the very name of "republican party." It called a "I'nion" rational con vention to meet in Baltimore June 7. To this convention both republicans and war democrats were invited to send delegates. It is significant that this was the first national convention in which the dele gates apportioned to the states were twice the number of electoral votes, a system now prevailing in both parties. The ultra-radical republicans were dis pleased with the nature of this call, and, becoming convinced that Lincoln certain lv would be renominated, they sought to ! forestall it. They called a national con vention to meet in Cleveland a week be 1 fore the regular republican convention. I That convention nominated John I. !? re 1 mont, who had been the first republican nominee for President, and John Coch I rane for Vice President. Three days be i fore the regular republican convention met Cien. Fremont accepted this nomina i tion in a letter, in which he said that under the Lincoln administration the countrv had "the abuses of a military dictatorship without its unity of action and vigor of execution. He further saul that if Lincoln should be renominated it would be fatal to the country. Tl-.c pli-tform adopted by the radical conven tion struck at Lincoln for suspending the habeas corpus, and then included this | resolution: "That the confiscation of the lands of the rebels and their distribu tion anions the soldiers and actual set tlers is a measure of justice." I The regular republican convention, or, strictlv speaking, the Fnlon convention, met in Baltimore on Tuesday. On tne Saturday night before, there was a meet ing of republican chiefs and bis w igs in New York, at which it was proposed to stampede the convention to Gen. Grant. But this could not be accomplished, and when the convention met Lincoln's nomi nation was generally conceded, although there was a strong undercurrent of op position and fear on the part of the Lin coln men of a stampede. The New York Herald correspondent, on the ground, said: "Were it not for the fact that nearlv two-thirds of the convention are officeholders. Lincoln could not be nomi nated " It was remarkable that prac tically every delegate from New Eng'and was a postmaster or a holder of some other federal or civil office. And the newspapers of the opposition (at this time they were nearly all of the opposition) untied in declaring that the nomination and re-election of Lincoln.not only would destroy the I'nion. but it would work ?ruin and destruction to the .whole re publican system of government." * * * There were a great many war demo crats in the Baltimore convention, and these cen Many War Democrats tered their , , _ opposition to Attended Convention. the renomi nation of Hannibal Hamlin fur Vice ''resident because they thought that the demor ats ought to have a representative on the Inion ticket. In this thev were supported by Mr. Lincoln's friends, and the result was that Andrew Johnson of Tennessee, a war democrat who had re fused to follow his state out of ;he I nion, was nominated for second p'ace on the ticket. The great fight in the convention came j on the platform and on the question of l aimitting delegates from southern states 1 where reconstruction governments had t>een set up bv Lincoln. Tliaddeus Ste vens. the leader of the House of Repre sentatives. a radical and an uncompro mising foe of Lincoln, was present and fought to the last to have the convention repudiate Lincoln's scheme of recon struction. Stevens attempted to induce the convention to adopt a resolution de claring that the eleven states in rebellion were actually and legally out of the t'nion and that the southern territory, held bv ' the federal military forces, was conquered ! foreign territory The Lincoln men held ! to the view that had been the unquestion- i ed republican doctrine at the beginning j of the war. that the states did not have the right to secede, and that, therefore, they never were actually out of the I'nion'. Stevens was defeated in everv test In the convention, but here already was apparent .the great struggle that soon was to be precipitated between Congress and President Johnson, but. of course, no man then knew how near was Lincoln's tragic end. Lincoln was nominated in -the conven tion by a vote of 4!?7 to 22 for Grant, the Missouri delegation voting for Grant un der instructions. The votes of Louisiana. Arkansas and Tennessee were included in the Lincoln vote. Johnson was nominated for Vice President on the first ballot. The democratic convention met in Chi cago August 20. a date late in the year. Long before the convention met it was apparent that the democrats Had concen trated upon Geen. McClellan as their candidate. The campaign opened, in fact, before the democratic nomination was made, so certain was the country that McClellan would be named. * * * August 23, a week before the democratic convention met. President Lincoln wrote and signed a What Lincoln Thought paper. which j Of Coming: Election. ^ the Secretary of War. Gideon Welles, j with instructions not to open It until after the election. This paper read: "This morning, as for some days past, j it seems exceedingly probable that this administration will not be re-elected. Then it will be my duty to co-operate with the President-elect so as to save the I'nion between the election and in auguration. as he will have secured his election on such grounds that he cannot possibly save it afterward." The democrats met six days later in j Chicago, and it is certain that they shar ed Lincoln's belief that the niHn they . were to nominate would be elected. It j was. perhaps, this confidence, or perhaps, i that senius for blundering, which, the republicans say. always characterizes the ; democratic party, that caused them to . adopt the platform they did. There were ! two elements in the democratic party at | the time?war democrats and peace demo- j crats. Most of the war democrats were j for Lincoln, and this left the convention | in control of the peace democrats. Tam many Hall was powerful, but Wall street ' ^as more powerful, and Wall street was ; against the war. Thus it was that the j convention adopted a platform calling for | an armistice looking to an ultimate con vention of the states, and thus It was I that the war was declared a failure. Gen. McClellan was duly nominated for President, and George H. Pendleton of Ohio for Vice President The convention had hardly adjourned 1 until it was apparent that the "war-is-a fail'ure" platform was resented by the, whole people. Gen. McClellan. the! nominee, was quick to repudiate it. Xo, candidate, chosen by a national conven tion ever before or since, ha-s so definite ly and positively repudiated every Im portant feature of his party platform as did Gen. McClellan in 1WW. The platform declared for peace first, tne I'nion after ward; the candidate declared for the I'nion first, peace afterward. The plat form said the war was a failure; the can didate said the war was a success. But the people believed in Lincoln and, although it was a hard fought campaign, ar.d although states like New York and Pennsylvania were carri??d for Lincoln only by the narrowest of margins, Mc Clellan carried but three state*?N'ew Jersey. Delaware and Kentucky?and the nominees of the union national conven tion, held in Baltimore, were triumphant ly elected. Lewis Fourth of July Orator. Spocinl Dispatch to The Star.

Camping Is becoming more and mnr? a feature of life with those who for most of the time aio confined between city walls. And the country in a thou sand places offers to campers rare at tractions. The bicycle is not altogether out of fashion, and on this or the motor cycle many reach places of seclusion where they may enjoy a week or a longer period, as circumstances and mood de termine. Canoeing, too. is as fascinat ing a sport as ever, and in this relation it is more than a sport; for the canoei-t may leisurely take his way in mam waters to delighting places, and camping to him means mdre, perhaps* than it dm s to those who travel by oth-'r means, for he has a wider selection of vanta^-: points unKnown to the multitude. Whiie the canoeist has his peculiar p easures, however, he mutt trtvcr>e water levels, although alon^ many water ways are mountains and reaches <>f Ian I that dissipate monotony. The man wit i the motor may climb th" steeps and fin I his vacation pleasures in a higher al titude. although he, too. may go where he pleases and vary his leisure by visit to different places. And the man or the family with none o? these vehicular means is in these days independent of them. Ev ery railway runs along resorts, so num? r ous have resorts become, and it reqiili'* but a question in any city office to brini; forth vacation literature that will at first confuse the reader by its richness of possibilities. The seashore along the At lantic coast, if !t could be viewed in the summer from Mars, would perhaps con vince the observers on that P anet that the inhabitants of this sphere are am phibious. so vast ait the throngs tha' people it.
