CoiiMtlcraWe Confusion Murks the Opening of tho Convention* Cincinnati, May 10.?The opening day of the great National Union Conference was blessed with sunshine. The weather-stained farmers who make up the (rreator part of tho delegations, wore conspicuous in the lobbies. Some quiot H'.rk has been going on, nnd it is cerium the leaders of tho two groat parties wish the work of this convention to reihund to the glory of the old parties. The apparent apathy of the South has created nitration, there being but lew e' their delegates here. Congressman I Uvingston, of Georgia, is here, not as a delogate, but simply to study oho situation,ana his attitude in regarded as indicntive of a general lack of sympathy *itii tho tliira party movement in tha fornh. Mr. Powdurlv, tho labor leader, cl? is not h<ire as a delcgato. This aoming was occupied with porfectinji State organizations, and at 2 p. ni. the conference held its first session in llusit Hall. U?OR HIM PRESENT. Tho widest interest has attached to the (act that there are so many prominent labor men present, and it ia reported thev are allied with the South to prevent a third party organisation. Just More the convention was called to onler, General Muster Workman lWdcrly denied bewasworkingagainst a total party. Ho iB not opposed to a third party, and neither he or other Mvr delegate* care how the reforms thev demand come about, only so they ug consummated.

J. B. weaver, of Iowa, was immediately on his feet, and strongly de- ' notuiccd Donnelly's tactics, saying this was no time to spring such a motion on tho convention.

Cincinnati, May 19.?The Committee on Resolutions, after the adjournment of tlie convention this evening, organized by making Ignatius Donnelly, of Minnesota, chairman. General Weaver said that tho St Louis platform would be taken as a basis upon which to proceed. The committee on permanent organization to-night elected Senator Feffer for permanent chairman and there was much rejoicing ovor a result which came from it. The vice chairmen are all prominent men?Hugh Kavanaugh, of Cincinnati, a leading member of the K. of L.; J. A. Brooks, President of the National Farmers' Allionce, and Gideon Dclamater, of Colorado, an old time Greenbncker. the mass meeting. For the mass meoting to-night the advertised speakers were Senator Peffor and others. But at 7 o'clock no chairman or other celebrities were on hand. Tho audience began calling for favorite . speakers. At length Sam Wood, of 1 Kansas, responded by climbing on 1 the stage and asking a fellow ] delegato to introduce him. The t speaker began a humorous talk, tho e burden of which was a jollification over t the Alliance victory in Kansas. Soon ] after the orator of the evening. Senator ( Poller, arrived and was received with t applause. Referring to the placard on i the balcony of tho hall, "Nine million i mortgaged homes," ho said that told j volumes. That result had been de- j clared by tho United States census. J PAINTING A PICTURE. ' Ho said the disease of mortal usury must be cured. Growing moro fervid ] in his manner, tho speaker said: "What 1 shall we do with the money power? 1 Let it alone. Wo will raise up a power J among the people and make our money IlKlll > our own railroads. [Renewed applause.] ] Aro we to destroy? No. To light? Yes; with ballots and with prayer, for ] tho Alliance is in a great measure taking the place of the churches. "Mr. teller closed by saying, "Docs ' this moan a now party? [Cries of I "Yes"] What else ifo we here for? < [Applause.] Tho prophesy of the hour 1 is that a new party is to bo born here. ' and its name is to bo the National ' Party." [Applause,] After another song by tho Glee Club, 1 tho Hon. H. Wilkin, of Kansas, began 1 an address. His manner was that ofan , oratorical pugilist. POWDERLY SPEAKS. , Tho next speaker was not advertised, j but received a greeting that seemed to I raise tho roof. It was General Master 1 Workman Powderly. Ho began by en- . d orsing what the previous speakers had j sold, and deniod that he was there to , head off a third party movement. He ) spoke of his eflorts to fraternise the . Knights with other organizations at the j Ocuta meeting, and spoke of coming ] meetings, saying in conclusion: "Lot mo say to tho South, when you ( recognize the nigger as a man, wo of ] tho East Mill join with yon for reform." ] Ho wont on to warn tho conference j against undue haste. No President , could bo elected this year 11 it was trio J. Ho said the Kansas men did not understand the situation in his part of the country, where ignorant foreigners ? were voted by number. He said the Knights of Labor would stand by the convention if they formed a party embodying their principles. The meeting ' then dispersed, cheering again and 1 again forl'owderjy and the Knights of ( Labor. t The Committee on Rules and Busi- > ness decided to-night that in all disputect questions, tho States shall be ] cifllod and tho majority of delegatesshall ' rule. 1 This gives Kansas tho voting power.

A PRINCE OP ROGUES. Iwlndler Graff's Picturesque History Unravelled ot Philadelphia. ^Philadelphia, May 10.?The pictur ii 1 ? a.: gquo young BWinuier v?iiosu uyumuuua n this city under tlio name of J.

It shows that Graff ivas one of tho most rcmarkablo scoundrels of recent times and that his victims ire to bo found in every part of the :ountry. . ... Why tho plausible rascal confinod his jporations to women and how he boi?i?a with nn acnuaintance iliip with many of them well known in lie social circles of the greatest cities of ;ho land is shown by thoso police reieurchos. If his methods were unique :he successes attending them woro unprecedented. When Graff's term of imprisonment in 1'hiladolphia expires he ivill tint! that he has only begun his period of seclusion from the world upon . ivhich he preyed. Other prisons yawn tor him. Tho New York authorities . ongratulate themselves because they havo the next demand upon him. They aavo already lodged a dctainor against liim, and wfien he walks out of the iron rate of Cherry Hill it will bo to meet inspector Byrnes' men. The crimes for which ho will bo tried n New York are more astounding than ihose for which he is now suffering the jenalty. Tho names of his victims ihore involve women of such eminent Handing that the police, both of that :ity and this, refuse to divulge them. HIE GIRL WHO LOVED BIK. The particular romance of Graff's ;arcer that glimmered through his testinony before Magistrate Milligan is still <opt a stern secret by that official. At lis second hearing the prisoner, calling Jie Magistrate aside, said in trembling ind audible tones: "She was engaged to be married to me. I don't care for myself, but for icr. Sho is of good family. I don't want her name known. She trusted mfc The only woman that I have tried to get money or valuables from have been women for whom I had no respect" Magistrate Milligan did not produce the testimony that would have brought shame and. disgrace upon a young woman of one of the most respected families in the country, and all that lias hftAn lpftrnod from the Dolice concern* ing her in that she is of wealthy parents in New York, and that becoming infatuated with Graff while traveling in the West a fow years ago, she was engaged to b& married to him until the revelations of his career brought about by his arrest here. Magistrate MilHgan wrote her, detailing her fiance's criminal achievements, and yesterday ho received from her a letter expressing her gratitude for being saved the disgrace that threatened her. 018 HISTORY. When the swindler .was tried last week ho showed his shrewdness by pleading guilty to tho charges brought against him by persons in this city, thereby shutting off tho testimony that would have been elicited as to his post career. When the Chief of Detectives Wood asked him in a private interview following this pleading what his real name was the prisoner replied that no one should ever discover that. He cunningly said ho wanted to shield prominent people from scandal, and therefore ho preferred to suffer for the "mistakes" he had made in Philadelphia rather than to permit anything tnrthor of his history to bo known. The Chief of Detectives intimated that he would discover his identity, to which the prisoner replied with a look of incredulous contempt. WANTED A QUICK SENTENCE. Scarcely had Chief Wood left him when ho sent a message to- the judge requesting to be sentenced at once. If this had been dono he might have escaped with a considerably milder sentence. Magistrate Milligan, however, had been before him ard had produced 'iin 11/lna -fnnta ViAfinomilncr tltA UUIUiD J UULU IUUW WV..VV**--0 ? rogue's career that had not previously been brought to light. The sentence was deferred for several days. Magistrate Milligan produced more facts and the four years' sentence followed to the prisoner's surprise. After tlio sentence was imposed Magistrate Milligan apd Chief Wood contined to work to secure "Graff's history. With the assistance of Baltimore, Wasaington and New York police his career was laid bare, the full facts being made knowri:yesterday. HIS REAL NAME. Then Magistrate Milligan announced tho fellow's real name to be Thomas W. Guerin, formerly a page in the House of Bcpresentatives, at Washington, with the followinc aliases, known throughout tho country: Benson II. Green. John W. Thompson. J. W. Graff. T. P. L. Kussell. Quorin'a mother is the historic esasssw** Wood could, learn in that connection was that she is a celebrated character. Well-informed people remember one woman of that description who was given the Capitol privileges by President Lincoln for federal services performed during the war of the Rebellion, and who is known to all visitors at the Capitol as "tho Spy of tho Potomac." Young Guerin was a page in the House for years. He was very popular with the Congressmen and their assontos, and took part in many n junketing tour and was present at "many a reception attended Dy the leading people of tho country. It was in this way that the young fellow secured the acquaintanceship of. tho social lights in the various cities m the country, who served him so well in his subsequent swindling operations from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Ho claimed the acquaintance, among others, of the Armours, of Ohi? ? ? --J A nlnra an/I tka Afi'llcao e\t I'UKU) tutu WIO UOVU1D VMV WUWVUJ v> New Yoik. While a page be learned stenography, and afterward secured a position in a commercial establishment as ^ clerk. Bv brushing shoulders with the guests of the swellest receptions at the national capital during his years of service as a page, he had acquired the highest society polish, and he had no difficulty in marrying the daughter of a very respectable Washington family. A FAMOUS BALTIMORE LIA1SOX. Guorin sighed for adventure. Leaving his young wife he wont to Baltimore, where he had a liaison with a married woman, a belle in the most exclusivo social circles. Thi3 was four years ago and the scandal was a nino days' wonder throughout tho land. The woman's husband sccured a divorce, and she joined Guerin in Buffalo, N. Y? when she sought refugo from the Baltimore police. In a note to Chief Wood, Marshal Jacob Froy, of Baltimore, said, referring to Guerin: "We had him arrested under the name of Bonton M. Green in Buffalo, N. Y.. May 13, 1887. He had obtained $160 from Miss Johanna Deisler, of this city, under the pretense of taking her to California aa a governess. After getting the monoy he skipped." Guerin's refuge in Buffalo was discovered through the divorced Baltimore woman, who. beforo seeking him thero, dropped a telegram directing her to his new place of abode. After being arrested in Buffalo, where ha was living in great style with tho Baltimore woman, several other victims appeared. When he was taken back to Baltimore still another wns produced. The same trick had been played with them all. Villages Destroyed by Fire. Milwaukee, May 19.?Dispatches tonight report the burning by forest fires of the villace of Amberg, Mich.

The Court Room Crowded With Spectators. Court opened with a very slim audience yesterday morning. There were not more than fifty people in tho seats when the session began, and the attendance was much lighter than it hod been for several days before, until Sr. Garrison was placed upon the stand. The news seemed to Bpread like wildfire and the court house was seon jammed. Mr. Howard kept pretty quiet all morning, and tho court said he wished all the attorneys had the announcement of an impending matrimonial event hanging over them if it would have such a salutary effect. James H. Dimmey, jailer at tho county jail was the first witness called. In November witness called Dr. Garrison c to attend a sick man at tlie Jail; Dr. Garrison attended the putientandhe and <the witnoss and Barney Zook stopped out upon the pavement; Dr. Baird was seen coming up street; Dr. Garrison turned his back as if ho did not wont to see him; Dr. Baird drove up close to the pavement and leaning out of his buggy called Dr. Garrison a damned . Dr. Garrison then said to -witness, "that's the way he docs evory time ho passes mo." Alexander Gardner, a conductor on tho olcctrical street railway, was examined with reference to whero Dr. Garrison left tho street car on the morning of March 7; he remembered tho date on which Dr. Baird was shot; witness knows Dr. Garrison; ho saw Dr. Garrison on the platform, of "D" car on Main street, from Tenth to Eleventh; Dr. Garrison got off at Eleventh street; f bo rang the bell to get off at tho Market alley, and was hindered from getting off by another man getting'on, and rodo on down to Eleventh street; witness rang the bell and halted the car at Eleventh street. n?nOD_..y?mlnfti1 \w Tiftvmiftr?

Willipm W. Hamilton lives on South Penn strtet. Island; has lived in Wheeling all his life; he works in the LaBelle Iron Works; knew Dr. Baird; knows Dr. Garrison; ho talked with Dr. Baird a week before the shooting of Dr. Baird about Dr. Garrison. At this point the State objected to the conversation being detailed unless there was a threat made by Dr. Boird. Tho attorneys argued tho matter at lengtn. Mr. Howard said the same question to Witness Bauman the day boforo had brought out mattor that was not propor. TJio court overruled the objection, and witneBS said Dr. Baird had said to him, "I will not be even with that nigger till," gentlomou of the jury, I am not positive, "I cut his damned heart out, or "cut his damned throat," I am not sure which it was, but I am positive it was ono of them. Witness was talking with George Snook and Dr. Baird came along, and while he was in his buggy witness told him he had a crow to pick with him bccauso of something Dr. Baird had said on account of something witness had said to Councilman Invin in behalf of Dr. Garrison for Health Officer. In reply to the witness Dr. Baird said the things above quoted. Dr. Baird also said Dr. Garrison was neither a white man nor a nigger ; that he had mado him and he (Garrison) had gone back on him.
