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
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.
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
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.
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.

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
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.
Increased Popularity of the Home
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.

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.

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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
A Rank Outsider Captures the Big
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

place, but finished in the luck. The

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.
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.
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:
