Tho prisoners would have preferred
being bound over for court and expect

Experience, the police claim, proves
the wisdom of this course, for It was
thought that through the pocketbooks

Eve-o'-Conveatloa Meeting Adjourns
Amid Confusion.
Because They Were Foisted on the
Club by Alleged "Snap" Work?
Also Because Objectionable Per
ous Were Among Those Chosen,
and Also Bccanse It Was a "City
Hall" CroivU--A Smile and Merry
Twinkle That Vanished.
It was a hard blow to Mr. Boland.
There had been mutterlngs of dis
content and certain developments had
caused him to suspect that there were
breakers ahead, but he was wholly un
prepared for them. It came at the
close of last nlt'lu's meeting of Mr. He
land's Bryun and Sewall club.
During the week tho city treasurer
scoured the county for free sllverltes
who had formerly been identified with
the Republican party and last night
had them on exhibition at the meeting.
There were fully six of them and each
was billed to make a speech. As one after
another at Mr, Boland's invitation not
up and told the part'eur fault he had
to find with sound money or the virtue
he had discovered in free sllverlsm, Mr.
Boland would cast his eye over at the
reporter's desk to see if the scribes of
the sound money press were taking
There was a merry twinkle in his eye
and a mischievous smile on his face
which as much as said: "Just toll your
gold bugs about that In the morning."
Once ho provoked much laughter and
nppluuse by hoping "that The Tribune
reporter would make mention of the
larg'i number of Republicans who were
There was a little Incident which Mr.
Boland did not call the reporter's at
tention to. It was this way:
At the previous meeting of the club a
committee on permanent organization
was appointed. The committee at tho
opening of Inst night's meeting sub
mitted lt3 report and It was adopted
without discussion or dissent. . The re
commendations were C. O. Boland,
president; L. P. Wedeman, vice presi
dent; D. J. Reedy, corresponding sec
retary; II. T. Koehler, treasurer; exe
cutive committee, Edward Merrifleld,
W. J. Burke. A. T. O'Boyle. E. J. Ly
nett, P. J. Nealls, D. P. Replogle, W.
W. Baylor, J. P. Hammeps, Joseph
O'Brien, D. P. Battle and- E. F. Blew
itt. As the meeting was drawing to a close
Chairman Boland requested the mem
bers of the executive committee to wait
after the meeting, as there was some
business for them to attend to.
"Executive committee?" queried Ben
Castles. "Has an executive committee
been elected?"
"Yes, sir," answered the chairman.
"Tonight?" again queried Mr. Castles.
"I guess It was before you came In,"
remarked Mr. Boland.
"I guess It was," said Mr. Castles.
Then he proceeded to tell them what
he thought of their way of doing busi
ness. Ho had, he explained, attended
every meeting of tho club and It was
never the custom to begin business
much before 8.30 o'clock. On this occa
sion he arrived ot the hall at eight min
utes past eight and found that the most
Important business of the club had been
transacted. He had also learned that
the meeting had skipped the first two
orders of business In order to get at the
report of the committee on permanent
"It was a snap committee," Inter
rupted P. J. Honan, who sat next to Mr.
"There was something unusual about
it," said Mr. Castles. "There are men
on that committee whom I would not
have voted for."
"There Is Just this about it," again
broke In Mr. Honan, reaching for his
hat, "it's a city hall committee and I
repudiate it."
There were cries of "Hear! henr!" and
as Mr. Honan moved toward the door
he wns followed by many others who
took that means of showing their sym
pathy with Mr. Honan's sentiments.
As Mr. Honan stood on the threshold
he shouted out loud enough to be dis
tinctly heard above the din about the
chairman's desk: "A few men can't run
the Democratic party. Backsliders and
pledge-breakers have no place in the
ranks, anyhow."
Mr. Castles was trying to get nn audi
ence, but the chair refused to argue the
question Bny further. There was a gen
eral protest against this amid shouts of
"Give hlin a hearing," and the like. Mr.
Boland Insisted, however, that the ex
ecutive committee had to meet and he
could not allow an unnecessary prolong
ation of the club meeting.
The crowd filed out slowly, some up
holding the chairman and others de
claring that they did not purpose to
have anything objectionable sprung on
them if they knew it.
Those who spoke at the meeting were
C. Comegys, Edward Merrifleld, D. J.
Reedy, D. P. Replogle, Dr. J. P. Slck
ler, L. P. Wedeman, W. J. Burke,
Michael Duffy and Nathan VIdnver.
Mr. Burke cautioned the county De
mocracy not to allow any " 'snake' to
creep Into the resolutions." Mr. Duffy
offered a motion that the club recom
mend to the convention that no candi
date be named who would not subscribe
to the Chicago platform. His motion
was not put, however.
Not Even a Guess on the Outcome of
Today's Democratic County
Just what today's county Democratic
convention is going to develope no one
can say. Unless a slate is made this
morning there will be a free-for-all
fight. There are various combinations
on the minor ofllces but the head of the
ticket Is not being figured In on any of
the deals as far as is known.
There is a suspicion that the city hall
ring has something up its sleeve and
will try to force it through In the con
fusion that will surely reign.
It looked last night as if the Demo
crats were all at sea. The only settled
thing was that School Controller T. J.
Jennings would be selected as chair
man. Nathan Vldaver declared himself
ready to take up the congressional fight
but would not, he said, make any fight
for the nomination. He would not
deny that he was anxious for the
honor. There may be an effort to In
duce Edward Merrifleld to take It, but
he has not, as far as Is known, been ap
proached on the subject.

Waldron, the man who has the repu

arrive here Tuesday night with two car
loads of horses. The horses he ships
are Canadian stock and those who have
used a Canadian horse know that for
strength, bone and durability they have
no equal; they ore known the world over
for the hardship they can stand and for
that reason they are easy to sell. They
are thoroughly acclimated and domesti

One car will consist of draft teams,
chunk and single workers, express and
general purpose horses.
The others will contain ronders,
coachers, pacers and trotters. In fact
all kinds, from the plow horse to the
sulky trotter. Everyone of them must

The relative merits and efficiency of
Paine's celery compound In making peo
ple well Is clearly shown In the char
ter of the people who today rely on It to
cure Insomnia, nervous debility, persist
ent headaches and a rundown condition.
It Is the power of rapid repair of the
tissues that makes Paine's celery com
pound the great saver of life that It Is.
It brings Just the needed nutriment to
the distracted nerve tissues all over the
body and Increases the volume of
healthy blood so that a breaking down
of some vital part is averted. While

a general building up of the deep-lying
tissues all over the body, and a throwing

Tho story of the discovery and un

pound Is the story of a high purpose,
steadfastly followed; the reward for the
life-long study of the nervous system in
health and disease. Prof. Edward E.
"Phelps" discovery In the laboratory of
the Dartmouth Medical School proved
a monumental work In the art of dealing
successfully with many diseases that
were up to that time held to be obsti
nate of cure. Today rheumatism and
neuralgia, heart palpitation and ner
vous dyspepsia are taken In hand by
Palnu's celery compound with the abso
lute assurance of freeing the system of
them entirely.
In this greatest of all remedies there
Is hope for every person distressed by
symptoms of dyspepsia, Impure blood,
