"Tho tJitot Chairman Ihirrlty, Secretary

opportunity to arrange the eoncutIon
hall here In the n.ost satisfactory mamicrr
and we wilt gle the oii!e Ihe gramlcst
cmirctiUc.il the eouutry has ever known.
Our ltlt to St. Louis has given us some
excellent l.leas about wlint not to do.
"There- will not In- a thousand aeslstnr.t
sergeants-at-nrms to tread on each other's
toes and block the aisles. I will not
hae oier loo assistants. None will bo
allowed to enter the hall without a ticket
as well as a badge, ta.iitoX there can Joe
no manipulation to getni crowd without
tickets into the hall to'rnake a nolfe.
"The Democratic convention will be an
exclusively ticket one. Not eeu the
President will be allowed to pass tic
doors without a ticket. The ushers and
assistant sergeaut-at arms at St. Louis ur
rngatc to themselves the admitting power
when some one not having a ticket but
acquainted with an usher or assistant
sergeant would try to pass the doorkeepers.
The wholo responsibility for admitting
people will be thrown on the doorkeepers.
If sonic distinguished man entitled to ad
miss'on loses his ticket the fact will bo
reported to me by the ushers and I will
furnish him with a ticket.
"There will not be a bulky lot of tickets
for each session as in St. Louis. We will
have oue ticket for the whole conven
tion with seven coupons attached, one
coupon to be detached for each session
"The fellows who have no tickets, but
who get into the hall, crowd the aisles and
make most of the disturbance will be kept
out of the convention, no matter who they
know, or what their political pull is.
"My ushers will also be trained In the
Coliseum to their duties, so that the con
fusion in seating delegates, which prevailed
in St. Louis, willbeavfilded. Many military
officers will lie among the assistants to
enforce discipline.
"As for the Republican convention, Isa w
no enthusiasm there. The !est I saw was
the Filly parade last night In celebration
ot his defeat. There will be 100 visitors
here to one In St. Louis, and there will be

Attempt to Add Fifth Man to tho
Chicago Delegation Makes Trouble.
JacUon, Miss , June 17. The action of
the recent Democratic State contention
in hastily choosing four delegates from the
State at large to the national contention
and then for the sake of harmony hastily
adding a fifth Jo cast the four votes, has
produced an unprecedented muddle and
is attracting great attention.
Secretary Shcrln, or Ihe Democratic
nations: e-ommlttee, has written that he
has only seats for- the- number of delegates
specilled in 'the call for the national con
tention, and inquiring "who the super
fluous fifth man is." Those who know
best say there will be a great lack ot
harmony In the Mississippi delegation.
A special from Carollton, the home of
Senator George, says- The friends of
Senator George rctent the suggestion
contained in several papers or tho State,
that he de-dine to attend the national
contention as one of the four delegates
at large, and thus make room for Colonel
Henry, editor ot the flarion Ledger, who
was added to the delegation, which consists
of Senator George and Walthall, Got ernor
McLaurin, and Senator elect Money, mak
ing five. 1
They point out that Senator George was
named lirst on the delegation and that
Colonel Henry'a name was added in the
Interest of harmony,and that Colonel Ucnry
Is, therefore,- the so-called "fifth wheel."
They say that If Senator George should
fall to go to the contention or even
should die, that his alternite. Hon. William
C. McLean, of Grenada, would succeed him.
The animus of this resentment on the
part ot Senator Geofge's friends lies in the
remembrance of the fierce and relentless
right made on the Senator for re-election
when he was opposed by the sub-treasury
candidate for the United States Senate,
Major Barksdale.
Says Ills Official Acts Have Be-en
Misunderstood and lie Withdraws.
Columbia, S. C, June 17. The greatest
sensation 6t the South Carolina situation
so far this year is contained In a dispatch
from Laurens. S. C, the home of Senator
Irby, which sats:
In a si ort interview with Senator Irby
today t.c was asked this question: "Will
you be at Manning next Monday, Senator?"
to which the Senator said:
"1 shall not attend that orany campaign
meeting as a candidate for the United
States Senate. I had intended up to a
short time ago to ask for the nomination,
at the ensuing primary, but bare concluded
not to enter the contest.
"From advices received-from different
sections of the State I cuoclude that my
motives and official nets, .fur the last
year have been misunderstood by the fac
tion ot which I was a charter member.
It Is apparent from these advices that I
must antagonize those with whom I have
co-operated politically since 1886.
"It seems that the entire machinery ot
the party government has been organized
to humilate, defeat and destroy me. This'
would not have been but for a misunder-
standiugotmy motives in opposingtheequal,
division ot delegates to the constitutional
convention, the defense of the name of
Butler In tnat convention, ray opposition to
the plan ot suffrage as adopted, and the.
uncompromising position taken by me in
opposition to a bolt in the late State
Democratic convention. In addition, It I
were to run with my old friends organized
againstmel couldonly cxpectsnpport from
those heretofore ray political opponents,
which would be distasteful to me, as they
oweraeno favors.
"In arriving at this conclusion Xdesire to
say that I cherish no spleen towards those
who I believe misconstrue my motives and
political course recently, and confidently
anticipate the future to vindicate these posi
tions and policies."

Tbe curtain at Allen's Grand Opera House
went down last night long before the
regular time. It didn't drop because tbe
ropes that held It were cut, but because
the people who worked fceLind the foct

MMre money on their current salary, and
incidentally on their back salary.
Manager GeorgcBuckler has been run ring
a summer show at this Louse for the last
three weeks. He has brought well known
artists on here from New Xorfc, jnd Lis
bill each week has been an Interesting
one. Notwithstanding this fjet, both the
house and the ma nagcrot the company have
lost money.
Tor some reason the people refused to
patronize the shows. ,
As the business continued poor, it was,
of course, impossible to pas- salaries. At
first the artists murmured. Then they
spoke so eery body could hear tLem, and
last night they actually roared.
When this roaring took place tl-cre was
a comparatively gooJ house. That i.
about $00 hJd been taken in at the box
office, and a whole lot ot pecple had
passed into the the iter Sa passes This
class of spectators is known as deadheads
and their presence does not help to pay
salaries. But when tbe perrcrmers heard
that more than half a hundred-dollars was
in the house ttey concluded they wanted
some back salary, and after two numbers
had been presented the rest refused to go
on unless they were given somemoney-
They sent for Manager Buckler and told
him they would play the week out if tbey
were given $10 each, which would be
about an equal division cf the money in
the box ofricc. Mr. "Buckler submitted
this proposition to Mr. Frank Allen, but
the latter refused to hear to It. Under
the contract he was to draw $50 a week
for "personal services," and this he had
not been receiving with that rcguUirity
which pleases managers. So he concluded
not to turn over the sixty strange dollars
that bad wandered Into the box, office, and
as a consequence the performers refused to
perform. " '
He refused to allow the money to be
divided among tha actors, but announced
that he would refund It to thosewba had
purchased tickets. Then began a rush
on the box office.
