delegates to the Farmers' Uniiln, which
meets hero to-morrow, aro already on
tie ground. The opinion to-night is
general that the third party advocates
irili carry tiie day, and an independent
ticket will bo placed in the field. Even
ii this session docs not make nomination!
for the State otiico it will probably
name ? date fur a nominating convention.
Overtures are being made to the
opponents of a third party action in the
effort to secure their support for the
more radical stand.
n is understood that the nomination
for Governor has been offered L. M.
lionliara, Secretary of the State Hoard of
Agriculture, if lie" will come over to the
third party advocates. Bonham is nil
snjont jiart'ihan'aud strongly opposed to
ilit! independent movement. fie is influential
anions the farmers of the State,
jr,d his refusal to accept the proffers
of the third party men will not
in without dampening effect on
that movement. He will absolutely decline
to personally take part in the in(i.-j*ndent
party. S. H. tills, President
ni the State lirango, is being severely
nitiriacd for tho prominent part he is
taking in the movement. The Grange
has an iron clad rule that politics must
: be mixed with that organization.
Ellij is acting in direct violation of
that Grange law and thus demonstrating
Ins disloyalty to his organization.

Cor.funcs, 0., May 27.?Tho Farmers'
Union which meets here to-morrow
morning will definitely decide the quea
noli 01 uaepenaeni ponucm uuiuu m
uhiti this I:vU. This union is a thoroughly
representative body. It is composed
oi delegates from the open and
i Tit Alliance,the Grangers, the Fanner.'
Mutual Benotit Association, and in
fact all farmer societies having a State
or county organization. Secretary Bonham,
of 'the Ohio State Board oi Agriculture.
hits already ventured the prediction
that the session will result in
launching an independent State party.
Mr. Uonhiiin's work brings him into so
ck'o awociation with representative
agriculturists that he has excellent op|'irtnnity
to judge, and for this reason
his opinion is entitled to consideration.
I ihto very doubtful, however, whethor
this decision to form a third party in
Ohio this vear can bo reached without
rioualy disturbing the harmony ot the
Mvral of the leaders in the farmers'
i rjsmiiations of the State have already
announced their hearty sympathy with
t!ie independent political movement.
-Wnoiiir them are \V. H. Likins. Presi
dent of tho State Grange, Miliar 1'urvis,
ufurmor Alliance lecturer, and W. II.
KHis, Chairman of the Farmers' Union
Kxecutivo Committee. On the other
hand Alva Agee, President of the Stato
Alliance, is emphatic in stating that he
thinks a third party movement in prei
>:?re. To-morrow's convention, howr/.vill
he a thoroughly representative
and whatever action it may take
i ndorsed by the greater portion
members of other farmers'
; ./aliens. The Union has heretokept
carefully free from all
al entanglement. Tho present
ting will, however, bo in a measure
[-red to take some positive stand either
for or against independence in politico.
The platform and the action of tho Cincinnati
convention will come before the
union, and must be either endorsed or
repudiated. Thus tho Ohio farmers are
compelled to commit themselves either
hit or against the third party movement.
The outlook on tho eve of tho
meeting is that a farmer's State ticket
will be placed In nomination, and that
the union will recommend'indepondent
political action in tho various counties
1111 ^I'Mtorial districts, with tho view
? "Warning the balance of power in tho

Washington, May 20.?A committee '
composed of Messrs. Paul T. Bowen, L.
P. Wild, and E. W. Hainbleton, representing
District Assembly No. 66 K. of
Tj., called upon tl)o Secretary of War
yesterday and presented charges against
Brigadicr-Genferal Albert Ordwav, commanding
the National Guard of tne District
of Columbia.
The charges are that General Ordway,
in a lecture to the officers of the guard,
used language that was treasonable, md
calculated to create in the minds of be
officers a sense of their superiorit JKo
the law; and to croate a bitter hatted
and blood-thirsty vindictlveness toward
such peoplo as tney may be called upon
to restrain in the interests of peace and
good order.
Also that he abandoned the field of j
instructions in proper military tactics,
and in condemning social, political and
economic doctrines he excoeded his i
proper function. The Secretary promises
the committee that fho charges
should have proper consideration.

Judge Campbell and the lawyers remained
in tho court room consulting
about the instructions to the jury till
after midnight on Monday. Consequently
court did not open till 0:30 yesterday
There was not quite as good an audience
at the beginning as tliora was the
morning before; but as the Captain
warmed up there was fully as muoh interest
snown, and as the morning
wore on tho room filled up till it wu
almost jammed.
Generul Alfred Caldwell and George
B. Caldwell, nephews of Dr. Baird, and
Dr. Reed 5L Baird and Will Baird, sons
of tho deceased, occupied a seat on the
stops of the judge's platform. Inside
thu railing there was quite a number of
friends of Dr. Baird's family, and the
usual quota oi lawyers and regular attendants
of the court.
Dr. Garrison and his wife and several
members of his father's family wore in
tho prisoner's box, but lUtlo George and
the baby were not there.
As soon as Captain Dovener arrived in
tho court room lie went to tho sheriffs
desk and took out tho photographs and
plat of tho scene of the homicido. Dr.
floi-riortn'o niclnl nnrl !">* Roi^'n Blnwui ' JJ
and placed them upon a convenienttable
for refcrcnco.
Captain Dovener began a few minutes
before 10 o'clock. He thanked the jury
in about the same terms used by his. gocounsel.
He then said that it was a
hard duty for him to call to the jury's
mind the facts and tho evidence in tli?
case but it was a duty he owed to the
State and to society to do his part toward
enforcing the laws and maintaining '
tho power of the law to protect tho peoplo.
The jury is in no wise to blame for
the prisoner's being in court to answer
for his crime. The jury has no right to
bo guided in its deliberations by any
feelings of mercy or sentiment. Tho
jury does not convict; it is tho evidence.
It is not the jury that condemns: it is
the law that says that he who' bathes
lijs hands in the blood of another-shall
suffer tho penalty.
The jury is hero simply to decide upon
the evidence and the law, and it has
nothing to do with the result save to
announce it and allow the penalty to
The State has redeemed her promises
in the case. It has laid before tho jury
all the facts it promised to orovo and it
has brought evidence to substantiate
every statement.
Captain Dovener then began with tha
inception of tho case. Two men of an
honorable profession?men finely educated
and who should be citizens of
whom the community could be proud,
are tho principals. One of them litis
been laid in his crave and is here no
more. You havo been told of tho persecutions
that have followed one of
these men. Th.cse things caabo repeat*
edso often that they are believed by
those who utter them.
This defendant has said that Dr,
Baird was a friend in a time of need;
that for eight long years ho stuck to
him closer than a brother; a closet
friend than a father or a mother. This
friendship lasted for eight voarj, and
in a political campaign, where thir
friend did not deem him fit for an office
he sought, ho opposed him. Thero has
been nothing shown hero to prove that
Br. Baird did in any way prove faithless.
If Dr. Baird was in any way to
blamowhywas it not shown hero? If
ho was not blameless, thon somebody
has failed to do his duty in this case,
if that was not done it is not the fauw
of the state. Tho first thing that ii
shown in this caeo comes from the gas
nffipp. There I)r. Baird. who was a
friend of thin prisoner, was met by thii
man in tho prune anil vigor of mane
hood and that face that had beamed
with friendship for this prisoner wm
beaten into a mass of bruises and scan.
Then and there was a man who wai
in an inner oflico. Ho came here and
said ho hud heard a voice he reoognized
as that of this prisoner say, "Ho struck
me." Where aro tho witnesses who saw
the origin of thoquurrel ? Whereare Albert
Kranzheim and John Shellhase.and
the others who wero in that office at
that time, and who saw it all? They
wero callod hero und sworn as witnesses,
but they wero never allowed to tell
what they saw; and why? This dofondant
has taken upon himself to maka
bis own conclusions and his own inferences
from tho threats he says be heard.
He did not bring theso men here to substantiate
these threats, simply bocauso
he dure not <Io it.
What did Dr. Baird say to him? Sapposo
ho did cull him these names? They
are meaningless terms and cun have no
weight, 'i'hey are idle terms, and at
common law are not evon slanderous.
If he called him u thief, and there wai
no resentment at law or otherwise, It
may be concluded that there is some
truth in it. If ho cull him a robber, he
can defend himself at law. liut these words
have no meaning und can have
no meaning.
While Dr. Baird was tliero in the gat .
office, smarting under the humiliation '
and dingruco of navlng been beaten by a
young man (or whom ho had done so
much, he said "I'll kill you." That was
simply an idle threat made under ths .
surroundings that cause men to say
such thing*. There's not a man upon
the jury who over saw a conflict but had
heard the same threat. It is t common a
word to use when two men are in conJliow
