Chat is, there are enough of them here to mate two or three respectable, good-sized conventions and there arc thousands on the way. The lobbies of the hotels are crowded, and candidates and their friends are omni jiresent and oppressive. To-day and to night have been unusually hot and oppres tive, and the sweltering crowds long for a lireathof cool ai The arrival and recep tion of the immense trains bringing Major McKinley and 1,300 Republicans from Northeastern Ohio was the outside event of the day, and an immense crowd, yelling themselves hoarse, met them at the station tmd escorted them to their hotel. Brass bands follow ed by brass bands, and badge decorated men are constantly parading the ittrects, and all of the excitement and hurry of au immense political gathering is here multiplied by the popularity of the favorite calibrate. The Occasion an Important One. The nomination of ex-Congresman McKinley for Governor will be made hy Ccclamation to-morrow, and, although there is sharp competition for the lesser places on the State ticket, the.se offices are almost lost from sight in the great interest manifested in the question of Republican orDemoeratie EuecefS in the State of Ohio, for it is be lieved that as Ohio goes next .November, so It will go in the Presidental election of 39i To the casual observer to-day the opening scenes of the convention resented more the appoaraDce of a Blaine-Foraker ratification meeting than an ordinary State Convention. It is no secret thp ex-Governor Foraker 3tpircs to succeed the Hon. John Sherman 5n the United States Senate, and the young wen who are F followers dominated in the convention, a like degree the young Republicans - scared to be devoted to James G. Blame, yet the ovation which greeted the mention of the services of the distinguished Secretary of State was by no means confined to the younger element. All .shouting for the Maine Man. Old men men grizzled and gray, and evi dently retiring when met in the busy world, lo-day forgot their age and their dignity as ihey joined in the wild acclaim provoked by the name of Blae, and waved their,hats J oyou-ly i hile shouting over and over again the name cf the popular leader. lint President Harrison and Senator Sher man are still dear to the heart of the average "Ohio mau," as the uproarious applause which greeted the mention of their names limply testified. Particularly was this true of Senator Sherman, who, however much Rhiino might hae led Harrison in popular approval, shared almost equally with Foraker the plaudits of the Ohio Republi cans. The Grand Open House, w hero thecon "vention met this afternoon, was handsomely flccorated. The National colors were con fcpicuous e veryw hern about the stage, and a largo picture of Major McKinley was sus pended in an ovidized silver frame over the tage just above the Chairman's, place. The sinpearancc of the- distinguished leaders was greeted with outbursts of applause from tlie enthusiastic delegates. The Convention Cnllcd to Order. , JVt exactly 2.45 I. W. King, ChairinanTof tlio State Central Committee, called the con vention to order. "1 shall not make a speech," he said, -'but on behalf ot the State Central Committee. I desire to ieturn.thanks to the rank and file for the splendid support extended the party organization in the campaign of ISM. Ap Ttlnuse. By reason l that support Ohio was presei ved to Republicanism, while her sister states were swept from their moor iims. Cheers. I'ndetcrred by the tin plate liar, nnlrightcned by the Holmes county tin peddler, Onio remained true to the principle of protection to American in dustries and American labor. Prolonged cheers. She returned her usual Republican majority." Continuing, the speaker congratulated the convention on the success of the Harrison ad ministration, and "on the fact that in tho campaign just opening tho Republican party in Oliio will hac tli c support of theilluatri ous.Iohn Sherman cheers, of the undaunted orator of Ohio. Joseph 11. Foraker." The mcition ot Forakcr's naine'prdvoked tho most enthusiastic scone of tho day. Delegate- arose from their seats and,as they wHved tlieir hats nndumbrellas and cheered themselves hoarse, it was evident that tho Foraker Sena torial boom was no longer an infant. Speech of the Temporary Chairman. Paying a closing tributo to William Mc Kinley. w Inch was loudly applauded, Chair man K'uig announced as the temporary pre fciding Jbflieer or the convention "Colonel Ben cin, ol Davtou,'" who was greeted with atiplausc, and narrated the achieve ments wf the Republican leaders iu Con gress, paying tributes espcciallj to Presi dent Marrison, secretary Blaine, Senator jshernJ". secretary Foster and Speaker Rceddftiid concluded as follows: But not to these alone is all tho glory. JThore stood upon the floor of the House of Representatives, as Cuairmau of the Ways and Means Committee, another man whoso pen-ices need no mention. His name is in 5ndisoIubly linked with thatactthatis bring ing to-day. and as the year go by will bring In greater measure, prosperity to the Ameri t.jiii people. A man who, having led upon the floor of the House, to the suport of every important measure, un unbroken col umn of Republicans.

I thank God that this is not true of the Republican party in Ohio. Wo are proud of our Sher man; of our Foster; of our McKinley, and of our Foraker, and would like to see them all grow four times fpur feet tall if possible; and they may rest assured that no matter how tall they have grown and they have grown very tall thero is plenty of room left iu tho Republican party for them to grow in still, because our party is as high as patriot ism and as broad as humanity. Enthnslasn for tho Plumed Knight. The enthusiasm of tho convention found fall vent in the ratification of tho partisan thrusts of Chairman Nevin, and in approv ing his eulogy of Kepublican leaders. Near the conclusion of his address, Chairman Nevin said: "At tho right hand of the Presi dent stands a man who, for keen intellect, broad statesmanship and devotion to Ameri can interests and American progress, is tho peer of any man who lias ever lived, who lives to-day, or over will live, James G. Blaine." - Thenamo of James G. Blaine was never heard by the convention. Little by little as the peroration readied its height, the audi ence caught the infection, and froma gentle hand-clapping the applause developed into one mighty roar that shook the vast build ing from gallery and green room. It was history repeating itself the scenes of tho National Convention of 1SS4 re-enacted. Strong men shouted themselves hoarse, and women waved their fans in approval of tho sentiment, while 1,000 voices simultaneously, and over and over again repeated inmusical chorus the name "Blaine, Blaine, Blaine." After a few words of caution as to tho ne cessity of nominating a strong State ticket mrouguout, mo temporary cnnirman an nounced the convention ready for business. Immediately after the appomtment of the committees, the convention adjourned until 8 o'clock tomorrow morning. Some Appeals to. War Issues. -The evening was devoted to receptions and music and speech making. The Lincoln Club tendered a reception to McKinley, which was attended by an immense crowd, including tho leading Republicans of the State. Senator Sherman was introduced early in the evening and made a brief speech, devoted principally to anecdotes and a review by contrast of the record of the Kepublican and Democratic parties dur ing the war. In the midst of his speech the andience caught sight of McKinley who arrived some what late, and tho Senator at once insisted that the "Next Governor" should address tho audience. Major McKinley needed no in troduction to the 2,000 or 3,000 cheering umoans ana waiteaior none. "My feIIowciti7cn,"said McKinley, "there is ono thing that can bo said of the "Hepubli can partv, which I do not believe can be said of any other party known to political history. It has been right on every great public ques tion that has confronted tho people of tho nation within the Inst SO year. Chocrs.

"I congratulate you to-night that the Re publican party of to-day, like the Republican party of the past, is right upon every ques tion that concerns tho welfare of tho Ameri can people. Applause. It is right upon every one, and I care not what issue you make whether it bo a sound currency for the Araerican people or a protective tariff to promote American industries, cheers. 1 care not whether it be liberal pensions to soldiers or whatever it be, the Republican party leads to-day as it has always led, the advanced thought of tue American people. i.ppiause.j Ana the Republican party to-night can look forward with hope and exultation.

But you arehere.and I want to say to you here to-night that wo have not waged a political battle for 25 years fraught with greater importance than the political battle of this year.

A voice, "That is right." Nover desiring, ot course, any mis fortune to' any other people, wo aro always looking after our own first and foremost, and if any man believes we ought to look after Europe first then he don't want to vote tho Republican ticket.

If they want to make theissueon Tom Reed, we will meet them. What was Tom Reed's offense. It was that, w hen Rep resentatives were in their seats they should be counted. What wero they sent there for, if it was not to constitute aConstitutionalqno rum to do the business of the people of the Cnited States. All that Tom Reed said was that if a man was present he could not be ab sent. Great laughter. He wanted the record to tell the truth and the Democrats wanted the journal of the House of Repre sentatives to tell a lie. Cheers, The Charge of Extravagance. "They say w e spent a great deal of money. So we did, but we have a less debt than was outstanding two years ago. The greatest expenditure was for the brave men who sacrificed tneir lives that the Government might live. Cheers. And we have no apology for that. If you want that pension legislation repealed vote tho Democratic ticket. We appiopriated $17,000,000 to pay the war tax which the States had advanced to help the Government in its time of stress when the Union was in danger.

S whatever the issue be, whether it be protection, sound money, tho billion-dollar Congress, Tom Reed's rulings or honest ballot, we will meet our adver saries anywhere and everywhere. Cheers. "Now, the Democrats say they are going to repeal the tariff b 11 with their big majority in the next House. Nobody knows what will be in the Democratic tarin bill. Laughter. Belore they get through it will be a regular crazy quilt. They won't dare to put coal and iron ore on the free list. The South w ill say to these Xortlieni men: 'Don't do that n hatever else you do.' Laughter. The bill will be made by the Souther Confeder acy tho late Southern Confederacy and it will be an assault upon every Northern In dustry and it will take very great earo of every Southern industry. Laughter and applause. They will never pass a tariff bill. They may try it, but you will not have it on your statute books when the bovs of 11 years old shall be 21 and ready to Vote." Pro longed applansc. Sherman in a Harmonious Mood. Senator Sherman kindly granted Tnil Dis patch an interview, and I found him this morning in his private room surrounded by threo or four friends. He looked oven moio eaunt and lengthy than is his wont, but he taiKeu ireeiy ana w ithout hesitation. After a few preliminary sentences, I said to him: Mr. Sherman, tho air Is fuU of the fight madeupnaypubythe Foraker faction wad of the defeat of you and your friends. Wfiat truth is there in the story of a contest?" "Jsot the slightest in the world, as far as I know. Tho Republican party in Ohio has never seen the time when it was freer from contention, of any kind or nature than at this moment. I have no evidence of any movement antagonistic to me. My own county, and counties throughout tho State generally, have, whenever tho subject has been brought up, passed tho kindest of reso lutions regarding myself and my public ser liecs. Through a desire not to embarrasln any way the State ticket, it has been thought 2S? ? x F, endorse anyone as a candidate . Vfl1 state Senatorship, but to work first to secure control of tho Legisla- ture and after that allow it to make choice of a suitable man." "What is your estimation of the agitation among the farmers?" Tliobestof my information leads me'to believe that the farmers of both parties in this State are seriously disturbed on several questions of importance to them, and con sequently to the whole country. Tbe large majority of the whole people are farmers. All of the vote of all of the cities combined would not equal tho vote of the agricultural element, consequently any movement in which they take interest must seriously af fect tho whole country. I am here In at tendance at a convention, the large majority of whoso delegates are farmers, and it may bo very proporlyassnmedthatanymeasures preferred by the farmers, which are founded upon J ustice and reason, shall and will have the most friendly consideration." GLASS MEN IN COUNCIL. ANOTHER MEETDfG TN CHICAGO, BUT NOTHING ACCOMPLISHED. The Jobbers Come Together, However, and Decide to Lessen the Discount Forty and Five the New Bate, Instead of forty and Ten. iSPECIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISFATCn Chicago, June 16. The window glass men met at.the Auditorium to-day. Nearly every concern of importance was represented. When the manufacturers met some time ago they were unable to decide on several im portant matters, from tho fact that the job bers' interests were at stake. It was then decided to call the present meeting and ask the big jobbers to attend. T. F. Hart, who was President of the now defunct American Window Glass Company, said before the meeting: "Wo will talk over tho general con dition of trade, and devise plans to place the windowglass business on a paying basis. No attempt will bo made to revive the old com pany. We have tried tho pool plan and it doesn't work sjomctning, nowever, must oe done to better the trade. It has been demor alized for the past year and we have been makincr class at a loss." "Will prices be advanced?" "If thought ad visablo, such action would betaken. Wo are to hear reports of the amount of glass on hand and the amount imported, and if, as we think, there is going to be n ;shortage this summer, we will certainly advance prices. Then there is the matter of wages to settle." Among the well known manufacturers at tending tho meeting were K. G. Hagway, Hartford, Ind., J. IL Chambers. Pittsburg; A. W. Voeghtly, D. J. Smith, L. S. Wood bridge, Bellaire, O.; A. K. Smith, Muncic, Ind. Some of the Jobbers are Wm. Glenio, Cincinnati; A. Read, Detroit; F. W. Palmer, Jr., Cleveland. Nothing was done at this meeting so far as could bo learned, but later the Jobbers held a meeting, George F. Kim ball, of Chicago, presiding. Representative jobbers from Cleveland, Detroit, Cincinnati, and other towns were present. It was de cided that prices needed stiffening. Three reasdns were given for this. Tho demand is active, the stock is decreasing and the fires in the blast will go out not later than the thirtieth of this month, as the men refuse to work in the intense heat. After some argument, it was agreed to les sen the discount. Hereafter the Buyers will get 40 and 5 off instead of 40 and 10. The dif ference is really small. FATHER ITMAHON'S GIFTS.

A DECISION AGAINST HOST. The Anarchist's Recourse to the Court of Appeals Proves Futile. (SPECIAL TELEOI1AM TO THE DISPATCH. New York, June 16.-Tho Court of Appeals confirmed to-day tho conviction of Anarchist John Most, who about three years ago was sentenced to a year in the penitentiary for holding an unlawful assembly and using in cendiary language in commenting upon the execution of the Chicago Anarchists. Most kept very quiet after his conviction, and so his appeal to the Supreme. Court was al lowed to lie unacted upon for about a year. When it was finally disposed of, the decision was adverse, and the subsequent appeal to tlje Court of Appeals has kept the case hang ing for more than another year. In tho meantlmo Most has been out on bail. But even the last decision is not likely to take the big-headed Anarchist to jail just yet.

' PLANS OP THE PROPOSED RETALIATION Behhit, Juno 10. With refereneo to tho proposed German World's Fair, to be held inlSOS, a correspondent asked the views of Werner von Siemens,, the great electrician," who Is a leading member of the Fair com mittee Mr. Ton Siemens said the year 1806 had been fixed for the exhibition so as not to follow too closely upon the Chicago Exhi bition. While it was yet too early to say anything positive, Mr. von Siemens thought that the Gorman Government would sustain the movement, and that the exhibition would take place at the time mentioned. "We will have no humbug; no Eiffel tower, or similar attraction," said the Privy Coun cilor, "but wo will make a solid showing of what we can do in tho way of manufactur ing. It will be a business affair throughout. We may meet with some opposition on tho part of Franco, but aside from that country we will bo sustained by all Europo. The European nations are becoming aware that they must consolidate commercially as against American aggression. Evidently Afraid of the Yankees. "America is not only shutting out many of our products by prohibitive tariffs, but she also threatens our trade with the South r American republics, and even with Africa and Asia. Your country is young, full of natural resources, and by your enterprise, no less than by your present policy, you threaten to deprive us of our foreign trade. Power naturally makes you aggressive, and Europe must take care of her interests, or else she will be pushed to the walL" "Do you, then, believe that commercial war will be pronouncod between the Old World and the New World?" the correspond ent asked. "Yes," said Mr. von Siemens, "if yon keep on as you are doing now we shall have to go to war. We will erect a big fence to keep out your grain, your cotton, your meat. We will retaliate. I am naturally a free trader, but I believe in meeting protection with protec tion." "Can Europe exist without American grain?" Looking to Russia and India. "Of course she can. We can supply all our wants from Russia or India." "Do you think that Europe, and Germany especially, will be the gainers by such a pol icy? Do you know what millions of dollars worth of yonr manufactures are exported to America every year? That we could strike a serious blow by simply prohibiting your Bugar?" "Yes; but wo shall find other channels of trade. Besides, as America advances in manufacturing she will need less and less of our goods. The day will come, and come soon, when wo shall have to fight against your nggressions." "Will you exhibit at the Chicago fair?" "I do not know as yet. At present it seems tome folly to exhibit in a country where people will not buy from us?' LORD AND LADY BROOKE. THE THREATENED DIVORCE SETS TONGUES WAGGING.

The rumor that Oivorco proceedings are to be Instituted has started everybody to talking of Lord and Lady Brooke. All gossip aside, the relations be tween the pair have oen littlo more than formal for several months past, they have not usually answered the invitations of royalty together. It is rumored that Lord Brooke has in his possession letters fully as interesting as those in the Mordnunt ease, written by tho Prince of Wales. Lady Brooko has lately shown a desire to win back her husband, who will in all probabil ity; soon be the Earl of Warwick, and but for the baccarat affair she might have suc ceeded. That raised such a storm of scan dal, in which Lady Brooke's name hold a OTominent Dlace. that Lord Brooke is thor oughly disgusted and will no longer play the part of complaisant husband to his beau tiful wife. Both are independent as to prop erty, Lady Brooke having a considerable in herited estate near Colchester. At seven religions meetings held in vari ous parts of the country yestorday, the Prince of Wales was roundly denounced for tho share he took in the baccarat scandal. At the Methodist Conference now being held at Leeds tho visit to Tranby Croft was classed as a "gamblers' orgie." The Tbaccarat scandal will como up again in Parliament. Mr. Morton intends to raiso the baccarat question during the debate on the army estimates, but no further action is likely to be taken. Prince Christian, nephow of the Prince of Wales, was present In the House of Commons during the bac carat discussion yesterday. ITALY'S CBmiNAL CELEBBITY.

A NEW FINANCIAL SENSATION. Ex-Congressman Dunham's Commission Firm Forced to Suspend Business. , Chicago, June 16. Tho commission firm of R. W. Dunham & Co., of which ex-Congressman Dunham is the senior partner, gave notice on the Board of Trade this morning that nil of their trades would be deared through the firm of Norton & Worthington. Mr. Dunham stated that the firm had not been making much money lately, owing to bad debts and slow business, and for that reason ho had taken this means as the short est and simplest way out. The firm was sued in the Circuit Court this afternoon by Moses Barn, and at the same time attachment proceedings were taken out. This action was taken because, as it it alleged, it was discovered that yesterday Mr. Dunham had conveyed awajrall his real estate. Later in tho day Mr. Barn, by his at torney, filed a petition in the County Court under the terms of the voluntary assign ment act. It sets forth that the firm has been for many years engaged in buying and selling grain, stocks and other securities on commission.

"SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. Concord, June 16. A cracked skull in a mass of other human bones, which were dug from under an old shed on the Beck farm, clears up a mystery of nine years standing. It was a mute witness against the murderer, who died an awful death a year ago, after watching for eight long years over the gravo of his victim. In January 1S82, Calvin Beck left his brother's farm in nopkinton, osten Btensibly to collect some rents- for property which he owned in New York. Tho rents wero never collected and Calvin was nover seen again. Suspicion rested on his brother, Perley, and the reasons therefor form a chapter by themselves, but as the body could not be found.no action was over taken by tho authorities, although oil tho towns folk looked upon Perley W. Beck as a mur derer, and shunned him accordingly. A year ago last January Perley Beck was found dead on a bed in the front room of his house, an old farm house built some time in the early part of the present century. Mrs. Calvin Beck was burned to death, it is thought by Perley. The latter undoubtedly killed his brother. WAR VESSELS FOB ALASKA. Secretary Tracy Will Send Four There to Prevent the Killing of Seals.

A MOST BEAUTIFUL RENDITION. Many Talented Actors and Actresses Add to Tlieir Laurels. THE AUDIENCE A FASHIONABLE ONE r SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO TnE DISPATCH. New York, June 16. Those who saw Maurice Barrymoro playing his part on tho grass and under the trees at Castle Point to day saw what they are not likely to forget, however long -the last of them may live. The first act of "As You Like It" on Mrs. Stevens'great lawn was an ideal, an exquisite and an almost periect performance, a living poem, a personified Watteau picture. The othor acts wero hurried through amid pelt ing rain in part, with vivid light ning and violent thunder illuminating and deafening the scene and the audience. The stage was the greensward with a bunch of theatrical battle axes set up forty paces apart to mark the limits of the players' ground. Great trees were all about, with their leafage tremulous in a faint breeze and with the Intense sunlight of the hottest- day of the year sifting through-the foliage either in golden shapes or in broken, glistening beams. Behind the battle axes were screens of evergreen, set up to serve as what are Rose Coghlan as Hosalind. called "tormentors" the sides of the prosce nium arch, behind which the players' mako their exits and entrances. Only the Scenery of Nature. y AU else was as nature made it and Shakes peare conceived the setting of his beantifnl pastoral play. The side scenes were great trees, the players' seats were huge lengths of newly-cut" tree trunks, the background was a vast gently undulating greensward dotted with haycocks and finally inclosed by the greenery of far-distant treetops. The people sat npon.cbalrs on the steps of a great unpainted stand of pine wood. This did not mar the scene at ail, for the people coveredJtandJookeanwayfromit. Nothing marred the scene. It was perfect and, en trancing. Through it all came tho rustle of moving leaves and the aroma of flowers and new-cut hay borne upon a breeze that tem pered tho heat until it was forgotten. And thus 600 persons, mainly beautifully dressed women, wore entertained by a score of tal ented players costumed to harmonize with the beautiful scone, and playing the parts of the bewitching comedy as if the genius of the occasion influenced them all alike. The andience was exceedingly interesting. It contained at least five women to ono man. And most of the women were young and many of them were fashionable. Mr. Charles Bernhardt, the famous illustrator and painter, as ho stood under a tree looking at the tiers of pretty girls and at the knots of other pretty girls who decked tho sward, said that the scene recalled a gathering at a bull fight in Spain. A Number of Fashionables Present. Among the list of the well-known ladles were such names an Mrs. George Post, Mrs. James Potter, the Misses-Cameron, Mrs. Eben Wright, Miss Duer, Mrs. Thomas Sturges, MIsS Morgan, Mrs. and Miss Riddle, Mrs. William Jay, whoso husband accom panied her. At one side of the spectators' stand, and hidden behind a screen of green ery, was tho orchestra. Suddenly, while nil the white and dimpled throats of the ladies throbbed in union with the softened music of their comments on tho scene, the blare of a trumpet sounded a ' call such as in stago land heralds tho ap proach of a king. And almost instantly there appeared the Orlando of the day in tho person of man who has been called tho best Orlando of his time, Mr. Barrymoro. Mr. C. W. Couldock, tho veteran, as Adam, was with him, and the effect was strange when the handsome young noblo and the gray-haired old servant began to talk together. In another minute Miss Rose Coghlan appeared with Miss Viola Al len as Rosalind and Celia. A very pretty pair they are, as completely in harmony with their surroundings as ever were two eirls in a tennis court, two birds In a grove, two pillars in a colonade, or two statues in a park. With Miss Rose Coghlan and even with her Rosalind most play goers aro familiar, and it needs only to be said that she was at her very best, and played with a fervor and spirit that surprised even her admirers. The Successor Viola Alien. Bt what an ardentadmirerhe wouldseem who should put in cold print the truth as to the impression that Miss Viola Allen pro- Tlola Allen. duced. Sho and the Orlando led all the rest and it was a never-lessening delight to see and bear them. She was as pretty as the daintiest water color painting as graceful and picturesque as' a uit of choice Sevres ware. She had a part that required little of her in the dialogue, but sho tilled the scene with a sweet and girlish beauty. When the wrestling scene took place be tween William Muldoon and Mr. Barrymoro there was a burst of applause that sent tho air pulsating buck against tho trembling leaves over head. It told of the ending of all doubt as to tho success of the experi ment. All had witnessed tho best bit of mimic wrestling they evor saw, and it was part of an ideal anddreamlike performance. A v.cry' queer incident marked this part of the play. Muldoon had been standing by wrappod In a cloak, but when he stepped forward and asked who was his challenger, he throw off tho cloak and stood forth in tights that revealed his hugo muscular arms and his giant legs heavily corded with mus cles. An" involuntary, and perhaps uncon scious, "A-All" of admiration came from so many pairs of ruby lips that the exclama tion filled the air. After the women had committed themselves by this unanimous vocal tribute they were startled by what they had done, and a second of silence fol lowed. The Rain Shifts the Scene. It grow cloudy when the second act began and the pleasant noise of the leaves over head changed into a sharper sound, between a hiss and a sigh, as the increasing wind flung tho branches np and down and to and fro. Then it began to rain nnd nobody know what to do. The players went on with their lines and the fashionable women put up filmy and dainty parasols of lace and uk and began, to turn up tho bottoms of their f j. foa.cjfc Bonil as Touchstone. cosuJ?'Q,,rdn it began to pour and a thixdbt "?- O , nrokeandran for the trees at thu.' i)So -hvyers'pace.

V " cloud was overhead and it was "l.. f r pes, but the Bun was blazing at ever tr t except the zenith. Still, two-thirds ofse people kept their places. Then the rain ceased and the people came back. But the full charm had gone The spell was broken. The lowering sky threat ened a storm and kept all the spectators un easy. As the sky grew more and more threatening and the wind rose again, the people began to leave in twos and trios steadily. The play went on, though the sun no longer shone, and presently it began to thunder. At the last toe play had to be not only hurried but cut. It was skilfully shortened, and after Miss Rose Coghlan ended it with the pretty thought that under certain circumstances sho might kiss all the men before her, the stage was deserted, and the heavens opened and let down an ocean of water.

Philadelphia, June 16. The report of tho expert accountants, showing in detail what ex-City Treasurer Bardsley did with the $445,0CC that he embezzled from the school fund, was submittedLto Mayor Stuart yester- day, and by him forwarded to Councils' In vestigating Committee. The report says: First As to tho itciri of $25,423 23 being the balance of the school appropriation for tho school year ending June 30, 1800. On May 81, 1890, the bank account of John Rarasley with tho Keystone National Bank, kept in his individual name, appears to have been over drawn $15,926 30. On May 31, 1890, Mr. Bards ley deposited in said bank a check from the State school Department, balance of appro priation, $25,428 23, thus canceling his over draft of $15,926 30, and giving him a credit of $9,501 93. Against this balance of $9,501 93 and other moneys subsequently deposited by him. he drew checks amounting to $12, 878 98, thus exhausting all of tho school ap propriation fund which had been deposited by him. Second As to tho item of $424,000 on ac count of the school appropriation for tho school year ending June 30, 1S91, Mr.Bardsley appears to nave recoivcu. lor iuo uuove amount in checks a total of $420,000; $20,009 was deposited January 3, 1891, in the Third National Bank to the credit of Bardsley's private account, and was used by him to re pay $20,000 which ho had taken on December 23, 1890, from moneys belonging to the highway account; $250,000 was deposited on January 5, 1891, to the credit of John Bards ley In the People's Bank. Against the amount so deposited, the stubs of his check book show that checks wero drawn for the pur- Sose indicated as follows: Check 8, dated anuary 12, 1891, State Treasurer, account of tax on personal property, $50,000; check 9, dated January 29, 1891, loaned toG. B. H., $15,000; check 10, dated February 26, 1891, "To pay tho State" $75,000; check 11, dated Feb ruary 26, 1891, "To pay the State," $10,000; check 12. dated March 23, 1891, "For the State," $50,000; check 13, dated April 9, 1891, "For tho State," $50,000; total, $250,000. As to the third mentioned amount of $150, 000, in Hen of the above check the Fourth Street National Bank issued to tho order of John Bardsley, Treasurer, certificates of de posit 226,227 and 228 for $50,000 eacli. Certifi cates 227 and 223, amounting to $100,000, ap pear to have been deposited in the Farmers and Mechanics' National Bank to the credit of the Commonwealth. Certificate 226, for $50,000, appears to have been used by Mr. Bardsley as a partial payment on acoount of n loan of $100,000 by the Third National Bank, said loan being secured to tho bank by the collateral noto of Robert Glendlnning & Co. and certain shares of the stock of the Metro politan Traction Company of New York City. The law department of the city is on the track of some of John Bardley's stealings. City Solicitor Warwick has learned of $100, 000 which Bardsley has in one. of the banks of the city. This is in the shape of 75o;shares of the Chicago West Side Kailway.stock now in the possession of the Farmers' and Me chanics' National Bank. City Solicitor War wick filed a bill of equity this morning to re cover the stock which it is alleged was pur chased with the taxpayers' money. JUDGES LN BLACK GOWNS.

The Sonth Boston Works Sold to an English Syndicate, Which WILL TRANSFER IT TO KENTUCKY Cheaper Coal, Coke and Iron the Causes Given for the Change. A TEMPORARY SHUTDOWN LAST NIGHT SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. Boston, Jnno 16. The famous South Boston-Iron Works, at which so many of the Government big guns have been cast, shut down to-night, and when they agahxstart up they will be controlled by English capital. The English syndicate which for more than a year past has been negotiating to secure control of the property has at last done so, satisfactory terms having been agreed upon. What those terms are the parties inter ested decline to state, on the ground-that it is not a matter in which the public is inter ested. Neither are the names of tho syndi cate given. It is in order to render account ing to them that they may know just-where they stand that an accountof stock is now to be taken.- The work will start-np again on Julyl. A New Plant In Kentucky. Tho company is now engaged in erecting similar but larger workain Middlesboro.-Ky. It is expected that these will be completed about the first of next year. The new plant is to employ abont 500 hands at the-start, but it is to be so arranged that it can be easily enlarged to employ 1,000 hands. Whether or not the South Boston works willTemain open after the Kentucky works are completed is problematicaL Tho works on Foundry street havo employed from 225 to 300 hands, varying as tho exigencies of business have demanded. The men now at work for tho company will go to Kentucky and be em ployed in the neir works. The same snper intendents who havo had charge of tho works hero will be retained in the same-positions in Kentucky. In case tho Foundry street works shouldcontinue to bo run after the Kentucky plant is completed a new-force of hands will probably be required. The Caujes-for the Removal. Mr. William P. Hunt,. the present President and Treasurer of tho South Boston works, will be the President of the new company. Tho remaining officers wiU bo members of tho syndicate now living in Kentucky. The causes for tho removal of the works to Ken tucky are two. In the first place, the de mand here for tho product of the company is not large enough to warrant tho carrying on of so large a business. In the second place, the company can obtain their coke, coal and iron much cheaper in Kentucky than they can hero. Middlesboro,though only about three yeara old, is a thriving town and lies right at the foot of the Cumberland Mountains, which contain all the raw material mentioned above. The company anticipates a prosper ous business. UNITED W0BKMEN IN COUNCIL. The Reports of Officers Show a Continu ous Growth of tho Order. Detroit, June 16.

It is finally decided that Mrs. Clarietta Johnson, convicted In the United States Courtof perjury and sentenced to six months' imprisonment in the Wo- , man's Reformatory at Sherborn, is not to be punished for her crime.

A meeting has been called for Satur day evening, when tho matter will be laid before the citizens.

The cost of the survey was about $60,000, and it has been very thorough and exhaustive. It is thought it may throw some light on tha dire results of the great flood, though it may not trace its cause to any door. THE CANADIAN CABINET.
