HELD TWO CONVENTIONS
PFMOCItATH VATi A ZITELX TIME IASTXIOUT. Jnstleo of the Peace -Uele(its Drive Their Chalrmnn Desperation and He 1b Flnully Locked Out of the Hall t oiiKreioni.l Convention Went Off Very Smoothly. Two conventions were held by tlie democrats latt night in Turn .hall, the congressional nnd justice of the peace. The former was called to order about 8:15 by Jamas B. Martin. There were, two nominations for chairman of the v,Dnf.r, ntintpl McWllliams and Peter McNerney, and on a standing vote Mr. McNi-rney waa declared elect ed. The position of secretary was evi dently not wanted by most of those present, as there were several nomina tions, but each time the nominee de clined. Finally, Frederick H. Brethau er was named nnd his election was made unanimous. The committee on credentials, con sisting of the chairmen of the d!fferent wards, then retired and after being out fifteen minutes reported that there were fifty-one delegates at the conven tion. The report was accepted and on a motion by Mr. Gallagher of, the third ward it was voted to have the chair man appoint a committee of ten to nominate a committee of twenty-five delegates to attend the congressional convention to be held in Middletown on October 9. The following committee was appointed to hand In the names: Daniel McWllliams, James Murray, ' Jamce J. Sullivan, Stephen Colton, Mi chael Maher, Henry Brown, William Webber, Jacob P. Hunie, John H. Mc Queeney, and James B. Kelley. After a short recess the committee handed In the following names as delegates to the convention: Daniel McWilllame, J. Murray, James J. Sullivan, Charles . Fleieohner, Michael Maher, James Kel ley, Harmon Snyder, Jacob T. Hunie, John H. McQueeney, Peter J. MoNer mey, James B. Kelley, Josoph P.. Man ning, Charles Havey, Henry Farren, J H. McGovern, Joseph E. McPartland, Patrick MoGuinness, Edward P. O'Meara, John J. McMahon, Thomas Good, Henry C. O'Sullivan, Timothy J. Fox, James B. Martin, Morris Foley and Thomas F. Ryan. It was voted that the delegates be de clared elected as nominated, after which the convention adjourned. The justice of the peace convention was called to order Immediately after the congressional convention adjourned, and P. F. Klernan was elected chair man and Robert C. Fahy was elected Becretary. J. J. Shea moved that the chair appoint a committee of ten to unminnte lustices of the peace, and later a motion was made to increase the committee to fifteen, one from each ward. Then It was that the troubles of Chairman Klernan began. He fail ed to name a representative of the . Seventh ward in his roll call, and about twenty of those present rose and gave their opinions on the legality of the proceedings Everyone was talk ing' at a different rate and on a differ ent pitch until Anally the chairman could stand it no longer and went to the committee room in the rear of the hall. He was followed by the crowd and threatened to call the police unless there was order. This threat evidently amused the delegates, who continued to josh their chairman. McKiernan then left the hall and went to police headquarters for a policeman. The two came to the hall In about five minutes, only to find the door locked. The chair man was told to give the "passport," "advance and give the countersign," etc., and was kept out in the hall for fifteen minutes. He sent a small boy for the janitor, who unlocked the door, : and as the policeman entered thre was a great cheer. Chairman Klernan wait ed for the committee report, and about 10 o'clock they made their, appearance from the ante room. In the meantime another ticket had been prepared. The report of the committee was read and it was voted down by a large majority, amid a regular tumult of excitement. Chairman Klernan was so provoked with the action of the delegates that he gave two raps for silence and declared the meeting adjourned, after which he left the hall. The claim that the tick et was illegal was then brought up by a number present, and In order to con clude the meeting Peter J. Bohn was elected president and Robert C Fa.hy secretary. The ticket handed in by the committee was then destroyed and the following was unanimously adopted by the delegates remaining, and will stand as the official one: Charles H. Fowlc-r, James E. Wheeler, Matthew A. Rey nolds, Edward J. Maher, William O'Brien, Jeremiah F. Donovan, Wlliard E. Warren, Thomas H. Cox, Charles T. Coyle, James B. Martin, Charles W. Bradley, Charles L. Kleiner, Jonathan W. Chapin, Bernard E. Lynch, Benja min J. Slade, William A. Wright, Wil liam' S. Pardee, George R. Cooley, George A. Tyler, John C. Fay, William H. Ellsworth, John J. Shea, Maurice M. Toohey, James P. Bree, David E. Fitz . perald, Bernard J. Shanley, Eugene S. McGrail, Richard P. Lane. The meet ing adjourned at 10:30.

Oct. 1 The factory of the Meriden Malleable Iron company tem porarily suspended operations to-oay. According to an official oi me com pany the Arm has plenty of orders on hand, but slow collections have incon venienced them somewhat. A meeting of the creditors have been called for next week. The last Inventory of the plant show ed assets of $213,000 and liabilities, out side of the capital stock ($125,000) of $53,000, included In that amount being the mortgage of Mr. Lyon. Since that inventory $14,000 of the liabilities have been wiped out, so that, as stated, the whole sum to-day owed by the com pany to the general creditors is less than $14,000. "FLOTSAM." The day before, as I walked down the street, I had seen the doctor turn, from his surgery door Into the stable yard and, following him inside the green gates, had heard the news from him. "Yes, it's all over," he said; "the poor little maid died early this morn ing; went- out with the tide. "I'm sorry," I said, "for the child had been a friend of mine. How does her father take it?" "pfullv." answered the doctor, "very badly; there will be trouble there, I ex pect. Will you come with me? I'm going into the vale. Lovely drive. No' Then srood-bye. Come in some evening and play chess, and with a cheery nod he got Into the dog cart and drove rapidly away. I stopped to light my pipe, and then went through the doctor's yard, mean ing to take a Bhort cut through the fields into the lane that led down to the beach. A rough wooden fence screened thf. barton from the tennis lawn, and the doctor'3 wife was attending to a large spray of Jackmanii clematis, which had been blown in the night. "Monica Gollup's dead," she eaid aa I passed; "isn't it sad?" "Very sad," I answered; "very sad for tne old maw." "There will be trouble there, I ex pect," she said, unconsciously echoing her husband's words; "he a an aione now.a It's an awful thing to be alone," I faid, for I know, and the doctor s wire assented sympathetically. Then I went on for my walk. That was the day before, ana to-aay was the great annual festival of the Burial club. Already the cnurcn Dens were ringing, and the men folk were strolling up the hill to the big field from which the procession was to start. The green sashes they wore across their broadcloth coats were as incon gruous as Paul Kruger's presidential scarf, but they made a brave show and their wearers displayed them proudly. The children were streaming up the hill in noisy companies, the little girls by themselves in the stiffetrt of white frocks, with elaborate hate Instead of tholr pretty everyday eunbonnete, and with preposterous parasols; the little boys by themselves in their Sunday suits, with enormous collars, and well greased boots. The atmosphere of bustling anima tion wat not congenial to me, for I was picturing Aaron Gollop sitting moodily by the bed on which his dead child was lying. I had known him all my life; a harsh, stern man, who, since the death of his wife in childbirth had centered Ills affection In his little Monica; a quarrelsome man, whose moods could only be controlled by the prattle Of baby lips; a hard-drinking mart, who yet would abstain for weens, ana spena "long days alone In the etone kitchen with hie daughter, netting hammocks for her to swing In, or carving rude dolls for her to play with; an Ignorant man, whose reading was confined to the Bible, and whose conversation was a strange mixture of coarse blasphemy and almost Pharisaical pietism. I could imagine him with dry eyes and rebellious heart sitting alone in the cottage up the hill, listening sullenly to the sounds of the festival outside to which the child looked forward so ea gerly; I could imagine the grim expres sion on his rugged face as he remem bered that it was the feast of the Sick and Burial club, and I could imagine him turning away from the placid fig ure on the white bed. nnd resolving to take the advice given to Job by his wife and curse God and die. The vision put me out of conceit with merry-making, so I left the happy vil lage and walked down Sen. Lane, past the school-house toward the beach. At the end of the lane, upon the right hand is a deserted factory, where once ce mont was made, and on the loft hand the river zigzags into the sea, a narrow foot-bridge across It giving access to a battery of guns. I had Intended to lie down on the grass-grown earthworks and smoke an. idle pipe In the sun, but a figure on the beach attracted me and I went on. It was Aaron Gollop, In his thick blue jersey, bare-footed and bare-armed, cutting bait. I could tell from his boat that he had not been long ashore, and I went up to him. "Morning, Gollop," I said, "what luck?" "Bad .tally, sir," he answered, short ly: "bad tally: seven prawns." He finished cutting up an evil-looking dogfish, nnd wiped his knife on his trousers. Then he produced some cake tobacco nnd carefully shredded up a pipeful; with a grunt, he accepted the lighted match I offered him nnd sucked noisily at hla pipe until the tobacco was well aglow. "Monica's dead," he said, pullenly, and in much the same tone that he would have used in telling me that it was n fine day. v I nodded. "So the doctor told me. What are you going to! do?" An obstinate line formed around his clean-shaven mouth and another dep one cut up across the furrows In his forehead. "Bide here till byme-bye," he an swered: "to-night I'm golng( fiahln'." Then he added In a softer tone, There's nought for me to no up along -now." "The doctor did all he could," I said rather lamely. "Oh! yes." he agreed, the doctor mo all he could. I've no fault to find with the doctor." Although it Is the sense of isolation! that makes grief hurt so much, yet the isolation Is itself one of grief's most sa cred privileges, and I hewltnted to in trtide unon this man's sorrow. So I was silent, and let my eyes wander past him and drink in the beauty of the nlnce. To the westward, the blue Una cliffs bend slowly out into the sea, and the bay is closed in on that elde by the stone cobb of the neighboring town To the eastward the blue linf" gives way to sandstone, and the cliffs rise more sharply until they culminate In Golden Can. ablaze with brilliant gorse when thev seem to sink downward again and end In the needle point of Portland Bill. It is n nuiet bay, wnose waters are seldom plowed by the keel nf nnv Hhin lareer than the colliers putting into the cobb two miles away I suppose I love it because it is so quiet; there is no esplanade backed by pretentious villas with stucco fronts and patrolled by vapid, fashionable idlers; no long, depressing parade of in valids in. bath chairs; no line of decayed landaus and broken down victorias drawn by ragged ponies. There are no bnthlncr machines, and but few boats; the village belongs to the' villagers and thev seem to wish to keep It to them oolveo 'Therefore. I do not give the name, but It Is written on my heart Gollop was silent, too, and for quite half an hour no word passed between us: we smoked in sympathy, and com muned with our hearts and were still. But he must have been thinking of his last words, for presently he repeated thorn nnd fldrlpfl h a next tnougni to them. "No. I've no fault to find with the doctor. My quarrel is wdth God. I looked at him. waiting. There was a fc,.t ..j.niv&iioii on his face th"t infinitely pathetic. "Most of us have thought that some time or another," I said. "I've been, there myself, and I tell you, man, it's foolishness." He shrugged his ehouiders. "I'm a poor hand at an argyment, . he said, "and if there is on thing that is foolishness more than another it is ergyment, but If anyone could have steered me to heaven 'twas Monica. 'Tis not only that I loved her; seems to me I needed her." "Perhaps God needed her," I said. Aaron looked at me. "Talklng's no good," I said. "Look here, Gollop, you can eteer a boat alone, can't you?" " 'Course I can," he answered. Ty well, the e alone; don't TUESDAY. OCTOBER 3; turn back because the helmsman's overboard. There's another thing, -too. You know the revolving light on the hill there?" Gollop nodded. "Well, a lot of good that would be to a man If he had it in the boat with him. No, you've got to go through thle thing alone. I'm going home, but you might think of that when you are fishing to-night." So I got up and left him alone with hie sorrow, and as I was still in no mood for the festival, I went back to my own house and spent a satisfactory afternoon with my auriculas. Auricu las are a good thing for a man, aa teaching him humility and patience. It was about three o'clock next morn ing when I was awakened by heavy hammering at my door, and going down-stairs I found Aaron standing outside with a bundle in his arm. He pushed his way inside the passage. "Light a lamp or something," he said, "and make one of the maids bring down some blankets. I can't take her home, for there is Only the one bed and Monica's on it." He unbuttoned his coat, which he had wrapped round the child he was carry ing, and I saw that it was a girl of three or four years old. I looked at him inquiringly, and presently, when, he had got a fire burning, and the doc tor, whom I hud sent for, had told us that Ehe might now do well, Gollop told me what had happened.' I'd gone out for brill," he said. .'You know the ground; you get your boat so that you're in line with tne factory chimney and with the tower of Wildacres church. A collier had just gone out from the cobb and this child must have fallen overboard, but I couldn't make anybody hear, though I shouted as I never did. Guess she's round the Bill by now, and the child's mine." He said it fiercely, as if challenging our right to take it from him, and I exchanged looks with the doctor. I thought of the bed in the stone cottage up the hill, which would have been empty next day if it had not been for this child. "Of course the child's yours," I said; and unless the father who's fool enough to let her fall overboard choos es to make Inquiries, yours ehe will re main." "May ehe bide here until after to morrow?" I knew what he meant. The little bed in the stone cottage would not oe empty until to-morrow afternoon. 'Of course she must, I saia; ana presently, with a jealous look at tne sleeping child, Aaron went away. Nfvt dnv mv blinds were aown, dui half an hour or so after the church bell had stormed tolling I heard his step come up my gravel p.ath. His eyes were dry and rather bloodshot, but he didn't say a word. I took him into the room and put the child into his arms, buttoning round it the Coat in which he had brought It home. She looked at him gravely, but went to him readily enough, and nestled up against mm as if she trusted him. Aaron turnea, ana, still without speaking, strode down to the gate, which I opened tor mm. j. think he would have tried to epeak, but I stopped him. That's all right, Gollop," I said: 1 11 look you up In a day or two, and if you want any things for her, you know where to come. There are otlll some here, you know." Sorrow breeds sympathy ana sympa thy makes one very quick In the up take. Gollop understood me, for once there had been a child in my cottage, too. As he turned out of tne gate ana strode up the hilt I followed him up with one parting shot. ' "You'd no fault to find witn tne aoc tor yesterday, Gollop; your quarrel was witn some one eise. no numc, man, and make It up while you may.' And although his face was turned from me I could imagine that in those bloodshot eyes a softer light was al ready dawning as he looked down upon the child who had been so strangely sent to him, and I knew that before many days had passed he would be the first to admit that with both the chil dren It was well.

The little city Of Jasper, the capital of PuboW county, Ind, has a church structure which i o larfre that almost any one of the Indianapolis churches could be placed Inside steeple and all. This Immense structure, dedicated as St. Joseph's, haa enough etone In its structure to build around a city of fif teen or twenty thousand inhabitants a wall four feet high and two feet thick, and the amount of lumber used in the roof alone would be sufficient to build many homes. Though this great edi fice cost one-tenth as much as the state house, it was built by the Catholics of one of the smallest counties of the state of Indiana, and to-day it stands with out a single cent of indebtedness against it. Three years after the civil war closed Father Vidells Maute began the erec tion of St. Joseph's. On September 14, 1S68, Bishop St. Palais laid the corner stone. After the death of Father Maute, the work was taken up by Father Basil Hewler, who expects to complete tha structure in 1905, when thirty-seven jnears of continuous work have been occupied in its erection. Ex cept for the ornamentation, the materi als used in the construction of St. Jo seph's were prepared and put in place by members of tne congregauon, wno for three decades have been making sacrifices of all kinds to realize the am bition of their Uvea Beoldes the vast amount of labor contributed, eighty thousand dollars In eah has been raised. Between twenty-five and fifty thousand dollars more Will be necessary to complete the work. When Father Maute conceived the ideas of the great siructure ne whs anxious that it be built in a most sub stantial manner, and certainly his wishes have been followed. The roof la supported by huge trees, the largest in southers Indians, that serve as impos ing ninety-foot columns. The' roof structure is composed of forest trees used as rafters and braces. x Between the outer roof and the ceiling there ie over one million feet of the finest hard wood in the state. There is. besides, an immense amount of stone In the struc ture. The story is that after the farm ers had hauled stone for months and had all the surrounding fields covered they thought there was enough for the entire structure. Indee there was only half enough for the foundation. .The foundation and walls of the 1900; church went up under the direction of Father Maute, who; after preaching the . eermon Sunday morning, announum who had been selected to work during the coming week. By this means about one-seventh of the entire congregation, labored each week. Father Maute not only assigned the men to work, but he, the busiest, directed It all. xear aner year this continued until gradually the structure took shape. The dimensions of St. Joseph's are one hundred and ninety-six by ninety feet. From the foundation to the eaves it is sixty-seven feet, and from the floor on the interior to the ceiling It is ninety feet. The walls are four and six feet thick. The steeple, when comple ter) win h two hundred feet high. In it is a bell which, with its hangings, weighs eight tons. Its sonorous and grand voice can be heard, with a favor able breeze, at Celestine, ten miles east of Jasper, and at Ferdinand, twelve miles south. The church, though the seating ar rangements have not been completed, can seat two thousand people, and an other one thousand can" stand on the lower floor Of the structure. . Father Basil Heueler, now in charge of the pastorate, is doing all he can td beautify the great structure left unfin ished by old Father Maute. Besides1 putting In a splendid heat system, there have been added fine art windows. Over the entrance is arf art window showing Christ feeding the multitude. It cost six hundred dollars. Near the altar is another of the Oood Shepherd that cost four hundred and eeventy flve dollars. Ort the other side is the nativity of the Lord that cost four hun dred and fifty dollars. Over the center altar is a small window, he glass In which cost three hundred dollars. The smaller windows cost one hundred and seventy-five dollars and side windows three hundred dollars. But the windows are not the most ex pensive part of the ornamentation. The three altars are especially fine, be ing constructed entirely of Italian mar ble. The high altar with the two groups, each seven feet high, cost nine teen thousand dollars. The side altars, one crowned with ' the blessed Virgin, the other with St. Joseph, the patron Baint of the church, cost six thousand dollars. The high altar has before It six great candlesticks, each of which cost fifty dollars. The railing separa ting the sanctuary from the church auditorium Is of onyx and brass that cost one thousand dollars. The other decorations are proportionate in ex pense and beauty., When Father Maute died he had failed to make any provision for heat ing and lighting the vast structure. At present candles are used for Illumi nation, but soon the building will be equipped with electricity. The congregation of St. Joseph's in cludes three hundred and thirty fami lies, or about three thousand cofmunl- cants. In the city of Jasper 90 per cent, of the inhabitants are Catholics, and Dubois county is In the strongest Cath olic district In the state. They have made many sacrifices to Construct this magnificent edifice. The monastery at St. Meinrad has received considerable aid from these people.
