PADDY AND THE BULL Have Their Counterpart in the Buckeye State, i The Ohio Republicans Have Their Laugh First. They Are Jubilant Now But Novem ber Will See the Tables Turned. The State Convention Resolves Itself Into a Blaine-Foraker KatlHcatlon Meeting;— Major McKlnley for Governor. Associated Press Dispatches. Columbus, Ohio, June 10.— This has been a gala day to the Republicans of Ohio. No one can derive so much unal loyed happinsss from the discussion of politics and the denunciation of his enemies as the average citizen of the buckeye state, and 2000 enthusiastic Re publicans have today devoted them selves assiduously to the arraign ment of the Democratic party, and incidentally to the nomination of a state ticket. There has been little room for strife in this last business, as the nomination of Major McKinley will be made by acclamation tomorrow, aud although there is sharp competition for the lesser places, these offices are almost lost to sight in the interest manifested in the question of Republican or Democratic success in Ohio, for it is be lieved that as Ohio goes next fall, so she will go in '92. To the casual observer, today, the opening scenes of the conven tion presented more the appearance of A BLAINE-FORAKGR RATIFICATION meeting than an ordinary state conven tion. It is no secret that Koraker as pires to succeed Sherman in the senate, and the young men who are his followers dominated the convention. In a like degree the young Republicans appeared devoted to James G. Blame. Yet the ovation which greeted the mention of the name of the disitnguished secretary of state was be no means confined to the younger element. President Harrison and Sen ator Sherman are also dear to the heart of the average Ohio man,as the uproari ous applause which greeted the men lion of their names testilied. TEMPORARY ORGANIZATION. It was after 2 o'clock before the dele gates began to gather. At exactly 2:45 p. m. L. M. King, chairman of the state central committee, called the convention to order. He paid «a tribute to Major McKinley, which was loudly applauded. Robert Nevin was *then introduced as temporary chairman. The welcome which Colonel Nevin received from two thousand cheering Ohioans gave evi dence that the state central committee had made no mistake in the selection of the temporary chairman of the con vention. a pkroratio:: o:; mlaine. The. enthusiasm oi the convention found full vent in its ratification of the partisan thrusts of Chairman Nevin and in approving his eulogy of the Repub lican leaders. Near the conclusion of his address, Nevin said: "At the right hand of the president stands a man who, for keen intellect, broad statesmanship nnd devotion to American interests and American pro gress, is the peer of any man who ever lived, who lives today or ever will live- James G. Blame." The name of Blame was never heard by the convention. Little by little, as the peroration reached its height, the members caught the infection, and from hand-clapping, the applause devel oped into one mighty roar that shook the building. Men shouted themselves hoarse and women waved their fans, while a thousand voices over and over again repeated in a musical chorus: "Blame! Blame! Blame!" After the appointment of the commit tees, the convention adjourned until to morrow morning. A RECEPTION TO m'KINLEY. The evening was devoted to recep tions. The Lincoln club tendered a reception to Major McKinley, which was attended by an immense crowd, including the leading Republi cans of the state. Senator Sherman made a brief speech, and was followed by McKinley, who received an ovation when he arose, Senator Sherman having insisted that the "next governor of Ohio" should now speak. A l.os Angeles Boy Browned. Troy, N. V., June 16.—Asbury Mil ton Foster, a student at the Renssalaer Polytechnic institute of this city, was drowned today while bathing in tbe Mohawk river.

CABLE FLASHES. The thaw of lava from Vesuvius has stopped* The number killed in the Basle disas ter now foots up 130, and injured 300. The idea of an autumn session of the British parliament has been abandoned. It will reassemble in January. The census of England and Wales shows a population of 29,000,000, an in crease of 3,000,000 in the last decade. A host of natives belonging to the Toureg tribes of North Africa were com pelled to leave the Sahara regions on ac count of the ravages of locusts, and they threaten to raid Tunis. The French chamber of deputies voted approval of a duty of three francs on maize, with a provision for the free ad mission of grain if to be used in the manufacture of alcohol for export. The high prices of cereals are being maintained in Germany on account of bad weather in the grain growing dis tricts, especially in the Hartz mountains of the Tyrol, where snow recently fell. The first-class passengers killed in the Swiss railroad disaster include Dubeck, director of the Jura and Simpton rail road ; Dr. Vagele, of Basle, and the family of Professor Dubeck, and other weli-known persons of Basle. The British consul at Odessa, in a dis patch to Lord Salisbury denying the truth of the reports of the exodus of Russian Jews to England, says the bulk of the emigrants go to Constantinople. In response to the protests of the for eign diplomatic representatives atPekin, the emperor of China has ordered the Chinese authorities to protect all for eigners and to punish the natives who took part in the recent riots. THE LANCASTER TERROR RONY CRAIN CAPTURED BY A DEP UTY SHERIFF YESTERDAY. The Charge Against Him is Horse Steal ing—How Andradas Recovered His Stock—Trouble is Expected. One of Sheriff Gibson's deputies has succeeded in corraling the notorious "Rony" Cram and his accomplices, Llanis and J. G. Kechline, in the moun tains about forty miles northeast of Lancaster. The readers of the Herald will remember reading in Monday's is sue of the pursuit of these men, and the recovery of four horses which they had stolen from M. Andrada's ranch, at Elizabeth Lake. The theft of the horses occuired abojt a week ago. J. G. Kechline is a friend of the Andradas, and stopped over night at their ranch in company with Cram. They asked for horses, but Andrada could not accom date them, and the next morning Cram and Kechline left, going toward the Protrero, where the Andradas had a band of borses in pasture. Several days later old man Andradas went up to the Pretrero to catch a horse, and found on his arrival there that four of his best animals had been stolen. He returned to the ranch, several miles dis tant, and reported the occurrence, and Deputy Sheriff Newton A. Morris was notified. He and Constable A. M. Mayes immediately started out on the horse thieves' trail, which could be plainly followed from the pasture, and have been in full pursuit ever since. Last Thursday the elder Andradas, who was also following the party, came upon Cram in the hills. He was within fifty yards of the fugitive when Cram saw him, and the latter immediately pumped a cartridge into his Winchester and took aim. Andradas, who was on horseback, put spurs to his steed and ran in on Cram, and the lat ter lowered his gun. The old man explained that he was not looking for a fight, but meant to have his stock. He stayed in the camp that night and the next day se cured the horses and drove them home without bloodshed. Morris and Mayes came upon Cram and his gang Monday night and took them all prisoners. Sheriff Gibson yes terday received a dispatch from Morris notifying him that the men were caught, but the telegram failed to state whether or not there bad been a fight. Cram is a desperate character and a hard man to handle, and it requires no small amount of nerve on the part of an officer to attempt to put him under arrest. Morris, how ever, appears to have been equal vo the emergency, and if all goes well will land his man in the county jail today. It is not known where the Mexican Llanis joined Cram and Ketchline, or what part he took in the theft of the horses. Cram has been a disturbing element at and about Lancaster for a number of years, and has been ih trouble more or less all the time. The prisoners have a number of sympathizers at Lancaster, and it was feared at the sheriff's office, yesterday, that a fight might take place before the men were safely landed in jail here. A WHOLESOME BEVERAGE. Increased Popularity of the Home Beer. The increasing business of Maier & Zo belein, the well-known home brewers of lager beer, has been very gratifying of late. They are turning out an excellent beer which meets with great favor. Connoisseurs have highly commended it and pronounce it equally as good as eastern beers. This is very creditable to a home industry and so popular has this beer become that it is rapidly tak ing the place of the eastern beers, both in families and public resorts. It is brewed from the very best barley and hops obtainable, and the great care ex ercised in its manufacture is the secret of its success. Forsyth Confirmed. Chicago, June 16.—Anew chief of the horticultural department was confirmed today by the national board of control, Commissioner William Forsyth of Cal ifornia being tbe man. The local di rectory must yet bass upon him, but his success is said to be assured. WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 17, 1891.—TEN PAGES. SLAVIN THE WINNER. Kilrain Knocked Out in the Ninth Round. The Baltiniorean Fought Pluck ily But Was Outclassed. Loantaka, a Rank Outsider, Captures the Great Suburban. Tenny, the Favorite, Falls to Get a Place. Nomad Beaten In Very Fast Time In the Two-Year-Old Itace- Itaseball Record. Associated Press Dispatches. As predicted in this column, Slavin defeated Kilrain inside of the stipulated ten rounds. When the match was first made the writertipped the Australian to win in seven rounds. The hurricane, hard hitting fighter is getting in his deadly work. Kilrain was clearly out classed, and was lucky to stay nine rounds with the hurricane fighter from Ha- antipodes. The Baltiniorean has all the requisites to make a fighter except the main one. He is not a punisher. His blows lack force. That is the story of Kilrain's failure in a nutshell. The fight last night was very much in contrast with the meeting of Jackson and Corbett and Slavin looms up as the coming cham pion of the world. The rankest kind of an outsider cap tured the suburban. Loantaka has always been considered a good sprinter but he was rarely started at any dis tance beyond %of a mile. His staying qualities must have been the greatest surprise, even to the jockeys and train ers of America. The time" 2:07 is first class. The Los Angeles horse Nomad ran third in the 2-year-old race which was won in sensational time for two year-olds over a b% furlong course at this time of the year. • SLAVIN THE WINNER, A Hurricane Fight Between Two Great Heavy Weights. New York, June 16.—The long dis cussed boxing contest between Jake Kilrain of Baltimore and Frank Slavin of Australia, for a $10,000 purse, took place tonight at the club house of the Granite Athletic association, Hoboken. Slavin was declared the winner in the ninth round. The club bouse was not a veiy sump tuous one and the attendance was not quite up to the expectations. A large number of well known sports were in attendance, however. jTHE Ml.:. READY FOR THE I'll AY, At 11:10 the contestants came in. Jere Dunu was referee; John Kelly time-keeper, and Muldoon, Cleary and Murray were Kilrain's seconds, and Mitchell, Ed Stoddard and Pony Moore acted for Slavin. The gloves weighed four ounces. Time was called at 11:22, and Slavin immediately began offensive work, and after a clinch commenced a terrible right hand pounding of Kilrain's ribs, just below the heart. Jake, though weakened, made a grand rally, aud gave Slavin hard blows right and left. Clinch upon clinch followed, and the round ended in favor of Kilrain, he getting a rib roaster on the Australian. A HURRICANE BATTLE. In the second clinch work began at once and again did the Australian pound away on Kilrain's ribs, the blows being sickening. When the men separated Jake assumed the offensive in a gallant manner, and banged Slavin on the head with right and left. After another clinch and more rib roasting, Jake landed a right-hander on Siavin's neck, causing him to whirl half round. Jake followed this up with terrific right and left facers, and the round ended in his favor. In the third round after a light inter change, Jake went for Slavin again and hammered him to the ropes, but this seemed to be the end of his strength, for soon after Slavin shot out his right and caught Jake under the left ear and down he went like a log. He managed to stagger to his feet but it was evident his strength was gone. After another clinch he received another terrible blow, which felled him to the stage painfully and half insensible. Jake managed to stag ger to his knee and the gong saved him. KILRAIN NOT IN THE FIGHT. The fourth round had barely opened when down he went again. Those ter rible heart blows had evidently done their work. Jake was out of it. Blood was pouring from his nose, which was said to be broken, and this combined with the water on both men made tbem horrible looking objects. Four times did Kilrain go to grass in this round, but again and again he rallied, although there was no force in his blows, while Slavin was full of strength and confi dence. Right and left-handers were rained upon Kilrain, whose only chance of staying the ten rounds was by clinch ing, and in all this he was sure to meet rib-roasting. THE REFEREE SAVED JAKE. In the fifth Jake landed repeatedly on the Australian's head without result, and soon another terrible right-hander sent him down. Once he had him in his iSlavin's) corner, in a puddle of water, and was about to pound him there, when Referee Dunn interfered. The Australian tried to push Dunn aside, but the referee insisted and the gong gave Jake another lease of life. In the sixth there were more clinch ings, and again those dreadful body blows beneath Kilrain's heart. Jake seemed to pick up a little, and landed a neat upper-cut beneath Siavin's jaw, but in the clinch which followed he again suffered severely. Jake was little more than a chopping-block for the Australian, and had it not been that both men were dripping with water and red lather, Siavin's blows would have finished Jake before. SLAVIN SMILES AT KILRAIN'S TIP. In the seventh Slavin no sooner got in the ring than he went for Jake's ribs with the same vim as in the first round. After breakaway, they exchanged a few ineffectual blows-, which only further demonstrated Jake's helpless ness, iilood literally pouted down nil face. Some good exchanges were given, however, Jake landing on Slavin onoe fairly with what seemed to be a final effort, which only made Slavin smile. In the eighth Jake went in for his saving clinches, and throughout the round the referee was kept busy sep arating the men. Jake once landed his left on Slavin's head, but there was no force in the blow, and in the clinch which followed the Australian almost stove in Jake's ribs. Sound of blows was actually heard outside the club house. The sympathy of the majority of the audience was with Kilrain, who was dying pluckily, as he really waa beaten in the second round. a left-hander on the neck. In the ninth and last round Jake managed to come to the scratch in pretty good shape, but after Slavin had landed upon him once or twice he was again a mass of blood. He managed, however, to get in two good blows on SI ivin's head, though there was little iorce in them. Finally Slavin hit Jake a terrible left-hander on the neck and Jake went down as it' shot, still game, however. Jake slowly and painfully rose, reeled and fell, and as the gong sounded had to be carried to his corner, and Jere Dunn gave the fight so Slavin. Thus did Kil rain practically meet his last Waterloo and passed into the ranks of second class men. THE GREAT SUBURBAN. A Rank Outsider Captures the Big Handicap. Sheepshead Bay, N. V., June. 16. — The great suburban handicap of '91 was run this afternoon, and despite the hot weather the greatest crowd that ever witnessed a horse race in this vicinity, was present at the Coney Island Jockey club races. A conservative estimate put the attendance at thirty thousand, but many believe that forty thousand is much nearer the mark. The weather was the hottest of the season. The race itself proved very sensational, in asmuch as Tenny, who went to the post the greatest favorite ever known in a sub urban, was not only defeated lor first place, but finished in the luck. The second choice, Tea Tray, finished abso lutely last, but. Major Domo. the third choice, managed to get place by a length from Cassius. loantaka the winner. The winner turned up in Loantaka, the 5-year-old son of Sensation and Peggy Dawdle, who was long shot in tbe betting, there being as much as 40 to 1 against him. The judges summoned the horses to the post at 4.15 o'clock. After a little manoeuvering they came down toward the starter on a line. Down went the flag, and with great cheering and cries of ''They are off!" the race was on. Ma jor Domo was first to break the line, and he came toward the Bth.. ' with a head the best of it, while Cassius was sec ond, a length before Banquet, who was a length in front of Demuth, who in turn was a head before Isaac Lewis, with the rest bunched. Tenny, Tea Tray and Loantaka were bringing up the rear. TENNY UNABLE TO GAIN. Tea Tray was sulking, and, notwith staading Snapper Garrison's great ef forts, refused to run. When the back stretch was reached, the order was about the same, and Murphy tried to improve his position on Tenny, but the littld swayback could not gain a yard. As they approached the upper turn, Major Domo had three-quarters of a length the best of it, while Demuth was two length in front of Cassius, with Fitz James next, followed by Tenny, who was getting the whip. Interest at this period was in tense, and a shout of dismay arose. "Tenny is beaten," cried the backers of the favorite, and it w»s true, for not withstanding Isaac Murphy's vigorous work, Tenny could not improve his posi tion. As they swung into the stretch. Major Domo was first to show, a head before Demuth, who was a bead before Cassius, while Fitzjames, Loantaka and Tenny came next with Tea Tray, thanks to his ugly temper, bringing up the rear. BERGEN CUTS LOOSE. They ran in this orderdown to the last furlong, when Marty Bergen cut loose with Loantaka, and it was all over. With space-killing strides he passed horse after horse amid the plaudits of winners and losers alike, and won by a length and a half from Major Dono, who beat Cassius a length for place, Then came Fitz James, Banquet, Tenny, Ri ley, Demuth, Isaac Lewis and Tea Tray in the order named. The fractional time of the race was: Quarter, 23 1-5; half, 50; three-quarters, 1:15; mile, 1:41 J mile and a quarter, 2:07. CONDENSKD TELEGRAMS.
