Iowa's long fight between the "stand pat" re publicans and liberals on the issue of tariff revision and reciprocity ended in a complete victory for the former in today's state convention for selecting delegates to the national convention. Of the twenty-six delegates chosen twenty are "stand patters" and only six are liberals. TCi eresolutlons adopted contain no sentiment whatever in favor of tariff revision but declare for the protective principle and "for its high fulfillment" in the Dingley law. As to reciprocity the' platform declares that It is "unwise to seek rgarkets abroad by sacrificing some parts of the markets at home." The convention was unanimous in naming its delegates and adopting its platform but the committee on resolu tions disagreed in the recommenda tions. A minority of three headed by ex-tjongressiran George G. Perkins, the possible candidate for governor, stood for the liberal plank declaring for a reciprocity that would 'increase the foreign markets, without harming American industry and suggesting that the republican party can be depended upon to revise the tariff whenever necessary. This the majority refused to accede and so reported to the con vention. REJECTED IN OHIO. Columbus, O.. May 18. The repub lican state conention met here today and nominated a full state ticket aa well as delegates and alternates to the national convention. The convention Mas controlled by Messrs. Herrick, Dick and Cox, who were disposed to have harmony while some of their followers wanted factional lines drawn even on the senior Ohio senator as a delegate at large. The Ohio delegation to the Chicago convention was not instructed but is pledged by resolutions of tho past two conventions to support Roose velt. There was an attempt to secure a plank in the platform in accord with McKinley's last speech at Buffalo, but it failed. Senator Dick, who wrote the platform said: "We stand pat on tariff as well a.f well as other policies and do not want the Iowa idea."

The LaFollette Faction Controlled the Convention. Madison, Wis., May IS. A continu ous parliamentary wrangle, led by the best orators of the Baensch faction against the effo'rts of LaFollette's sup porters to seat contested delegations to the republican state convention to day, resulted in a bolt of the Baensch delegates and a refusal of the Cook men to recognize the convention as legal. The point in question was upon the power of the state central committee against the power of the convention to determine the roll of the convention. No compromise was offered, except that the Baensch men demand a re turn of evidence before the state cen tral committee to tho convention body for final action. The proposition was refused and the .contested delegates, except their own, and tho LaFollette supporters voted as a unrt and had complete control of ths convention. A feature of the convention was the announcement of one 6f the delegates that Senators Spooner and Quarles did not y.fsh their names to be presented before this convention, as delegates at large to the national convention.. ' The Cook faction in the republican stat convention, which bolted the con vention, met in the Fuller opera house tonight., A temporary organization was effected and an adjournment was taken until tomorrow.

AMERICAN ENGINEER Held in Mexico on Account of a Train Wreck. Denver, May 18. Police Captain Frank W. Lee, of this city, has re ceived a letter from his brother, Tim othy J. Lee, formerly a resident of Denver, dated May 10, stating that he was practically a prisoner at Zacatecas, Mexico and calling upon his brother to make an effort to effect his release from the hands of the civil authori ties at Zacatecas. This condition was brought about through the wrecking of a Mexican Central passenger train near Zacatecas receptly. In the letter Mr. Lee says fourteen persons were killed and forty were injured., mostly Americans, sev eral being members of the train crew. Mr. Lee was the engineer and was himself painfully hurt. He was taken to a. sort of an alms house, he says, where he is being kept constantly un der a guard of gendarmes.

PAID A PRICE Purse Strings Loosened at Santa Cruz HOW THE TIDE TURNED A San Franeisco Newspaper Charges That the Instructions for Hearst Were Secured by the Free Use of Ready Money at Critical Juncture. San Francisco, Cal., May 18. Tlvi Bulletin published the following dis patch from Santa. Cruz in a special, edition tonight: Money was put in circulation here late yesterday afternoon and last night in the interests of William Randolph Heart. That this is true there can b r.o doubt. The efforts of injection of coin wore observed and especially tho conduct of the boodling end of the Los Angeles delegation. A number of tha Los Ang3les men, who had been clow fisted ever since their arrival and who were declared by the respectable ele ment of tse delegation to be waiting for the "sack to open," suddenly appeared to be Hush. They made a precipitate rush for the saloons and began "tank ing up? as o:ieof them expressed it. All of these men passed gold over the bars and they were careless as to their change. Toward the latter end of t'.ie evening some of them had become ro loose tongued as to drop hints of a most significant character. A number of. the San Francisco del egates likewise showed evidences of prosperity before the night was over, while some of the representatives of the country districts, who had voted against the Hearst prcgramme in th afternoon, were at night drinking and spending money freely, proclaiming that they would vote for a resolution of Instructions. That Hearst had made a compact with the Southern Pacific was aU. shown when the San Diego delegation, which at noon yesterday promised it support to Gould, suddenly fell in with the Hearst programme. In this con nection, it was declared that Delegate Samuel Schiller, cf San Diego, had re ceived a telegram from T. McCaffery. the Lo'st Angeles representative of th Southern Pacific. The burden of Mc Caffery's telegram to Schiller as stateJ by members of the San Diego delega tion, was:. "Stand pat and take the Hearst people's orders." Schiller and hi associates decided that it would be unwise for them to disregard the instruction of the rail road, so they got back on the Hearst band wagon. Besides using money and bringing the railroad into the fight, the He-jrst people used every other wile and in fluence that they could conceive of to force the delegates Into line. San Fran cisco labor leaders were appealed to and asked to stand for Hearst In the interest of organized labor. Several delegates from south of Market strc?t found the receipt of thtse telegrams ex cellent excuses for going over to the Hearst camp, but none of these was ob served to go hungry, so far as the ne:d of ready money was concerned. The Hearst machine, in fact. has waged a fipht such as has never before? been made at a state convention in Cal ifornia. It has used Ihe tactics of a corrupt corporation at a, state legisla ture, and what recognition it secured at this time, under the circumstances, does it littl3 honor. OTHER NEGOTIATIONS. Santa Cruz, May 18. The Hearst managers broke the solidity of M.. Nab s forces in San Francisco through the influence of the City Improvement company of San Francisco and the Lit tle Louisiana Lottery company. The president of the former is John W. Mc Donald who was a delegate from tho Thirty-eighth assembly district. This district had ten votes which were cast for Gould. R. R. Wallace was chair man of the delegation. Yesterday eight of the delegates were obliged to return to San Francisco, leaving in structions with Wallace to cast their votes against Hearst instructions. During the "morning McDonald was in close communication with the Hearst managers. In the noon recess he tork Wallace out and subsequently shipped him to San Francisco on the 6 o'clock train. This left McDonald as the sole representative of the district and un dr the convention rules he had the power to vote the absentees. When Bhe district was called in the rollcal! on tho resolutions, McDonald cast the solid ten for Hearst instructions. During tre evening he stated that from now on he would have no difficulty In securing his money for street sweeping contracts, as his warrants would be promptly passed and not held up as they had1 been la the past. Gavin McNab afterward de nounced him roundly. The story of the loss of six votes in the Thirty-ninth district Is acccunted for by men familiar with the inside of the deal made by the Hearst managers. Dick O'Connor, delegate from the dis trict is one of the largest sharehold ers in the Little Louisiana Lottery company. The district has seven dele gates, who voted rolldly for Gould for chairman. O'Connor controlled five of the seven vote3, which he "oast with his own for the Hearst iesolution.N A prominent business man of San Fran cisco, is authority for the statement that O'Connor made the switch in con sideration of a promise of immunity from police Interference in the lottery business. O'Connor after making the switch, left the convention hall and has not since been seen around the re sorts. WEATHER TODAY. Washington, May 18.
