Tho Froo Coinage Men Want to Fnrutah Doodle for Ohio Democrats. New Yoiik, Juno 21.?Tho free coinage silver advocates aro goin'g to mako n stronuous effort to secure a free coinego plunk in tho Democratic platform Of Ohio, with a view of making that question an iesuo in the State and of bringing on n gencinl issuo on that eubjoct iii tho. presidential election next year. This decision was reached to-day by the executive committee of tho National Silver Association, which has been in session for two days at tho Hoffman House. Tho chairman of this committee is General -A. J. Warner, of Ohio, who was formerly in Congress, where as n silver advocate ho became known as "Silver JJill" Warner. Ho is a Democrat of proininonco in Ohio, and nnilnr lilg riiruction the silver associa tion luts for two year a past been seeking to moke silver a political issue in thuEsst. lie came to Now York during the campaign for Congressmen lust fall and made a speech at Cooper Cnion solely for tho puiposo of injecting tho silver issue into the political atmosphere. lie said at tho time that all ho wanted was to keep theEast alive to tho fact tliut there was a growing silver question which must bo settled. The association it made up of wealthy silver mine oWncri. Dr. L. M. Hamsey, who was in attendance 011 tills meeting, is the largest stockholder in the Granite Mountain Mine, of Montana, and owns a iifth Interest in tho famous Bi-Motallic. Gen. F. G. Keelands, another member, is executor of tho Sharon estate in Nevada and California, and is himself ono of tho millionaire mlno owners of that section. The association is able to seoure contributions to an unlimited amount from silvor men for tho work of securing free coinage. The plan about Ohio is first to induce the Ohio Democratic lenders to Insert an ..?<! nn? .iKunlnfn fv/in pnimura tilf.nlr UiH-uuu-um, uuoutunxivu f ? in tlieir plutform. It is further argued that to raise tho silver issue will lessen the importance of tho tariff issue, on which Major McKinley lias an enormous advantage over his probublo avdersary, Governor Campbell. But greater than all of these inducements in the more potent one of moner. The silver men will agree to raise &500.0C0 for tho Ohio campaign If tho silver issue is put to the front. In determining on this offer they reasoned among themselves that it can be made the chief issue in Ohio and the Democrats win on it, the issue will overshadow everything eleo for 1892, and that is a stake they think worth playing for. They claim to have the West and South almost solid with them, but fear the East and Middle States. Tho influence of conservative banking and financial forces in these sections provents them from securing what they claim as their own?that is, the West and South. So theydesiro to capturo at least ono of the great States. TEN DAYS UNCONSCIOUS. Young Lntly Is Thrown Into a Cdtnleptlo Fit, from Which She-Does not Recover. St. Mary's, 0., Juno 21.?Considerable interest is being manifested in the caso of Ella Ragan, who wns, several weeks ago, struck by lightning and still lives, with ivory prospcct of a long lifo before her. What makes her experience one of unusual interest is that immediately after the shock sho dropped into a deep sleep, and slumbered almost uninterruptedly for ten days, taking onlv a little liquid nourishment, perhaps tnreo times, when half aroused. Miss Ragan is a prepossessing young lady of twenty summers, and lives with her parents near Anna, Shelby county. She describes the sensation of the shock and says her mind was a perfect blank for the ten days sho slept except for an hour on tho Thursday following the ouuiin> She says there was no sensation ol pain beyond" that of fright. Sho doscribes the bolt of lightning as a big ball of firu, and tho illumination was almost painful. Dr. C. W. Harbour, ol Anna, was called in tho night of the shock. Ho says Miss Hagan was a typical cataleptic. In this tho patient experiences a puspension of the action of tho sense und of volition, tho body and limbs preserving tlio position given them, while the action of the heart and lungs continues. During her stupor, if tlio arm or limb of tho patient was raised to a position impossible to be held for more than a moment during consciousnesss, it would remain for hours without change. Her body was placcd on two chairs resting onlv on heels and the back ol her head. In this seemingly impossible Jiasition sho remained perfectly motioness and rigid until it wns changed lot her.

Ho evidently had been working tho wires, for ho had not boon long registered fit tho Barnett Houso before a dozen -Democrats dropped in to see him. He received reporters for local papers as woll as correspondents in his room, and said he had no opinions to hide. He carried thorn on bis sleeve, and was not afraid to publish them. One idea of. his was that if Campbell was nominated ho would lose Hamilton county by ten thousand, which would mean defeat hi the State. J>eal said ho felt confident of Ills nomination. Hamilton and other southern counties wore for him solid, and lie had jnst boon on a trip through the northern and northwestern counties. He was gratified at his reception iu Canton and thought affairs wero favorable for him in Stark county. From hero ho says ho will go. to hi* Chilllcotne homo.

THE LATEST FAVORITE Of the Prince of "Wales ia a Notorious Courtesan. HE IS fl CONSTANT Y1SIT0R To Her Domicile?Tho Unbecoming Conduct of England's Future King* No Wonder that the Good l'eoplo or Britain are Growing Disgusted. Londo.v, Juno 21.?For a man who claims to bo tbo censor, tho inontor and tho supremo ruler of English society, tho champion of proprieties, the X'rlnco of Wales' conduct is scarcely bocoming. That bo is a constant visitor to thohouso of Lord Marcus Beresford, whoso establishment is presided over by tho lovely but exceedingly notorious Sirs. Charlie Buller. Tho latter is Uie daughter of tho lato General Ridley, who eloped from her first husband, Colonel Kingscote, of the artillery, with Cnptuin Charles Buller, ot the Horse Guards, an officer whose claims to famo aro based upon his record as a crickotor and as tho first discoverer of Mabel Gray, the London counterpart of tho Parisian. Coral I'oarl. . Subsequently the divorce court permitted Mrs. Kingscote to contract a marriage with Captain Buller. Matrimony, however, in its legal furui, proved far too commonplace to suit hor views, and she, in course of time, abandoned Buller for Lord Beresford. Once more sho figured as the heroine of a divorce caso. Lord Marcus being the coTin*., filfhnnirh the chnrcos against her were proved, yet the character of liuller was such that ho was held to have been cognizant and consenting party to her infidelity. The result wan that tho Queen's Proctor intervened and tho divorce tfas refused. Since then she has lived openly with Lord Marcus Beresford as his wife. IlKJt MAIfY LIAISON'S. Although the number of hor liaisons has been such that sho is popularly known by tho nauio of "Unlimited Leo," and that at the time of her last appearance in tho Divorce Court it was suggested that the cntiro Carlton Club should bo included in the list of corespondents, yot her bomloir and drawing rooms are crowded with portraits of tho Prince of Wales, bearing his royal putograph, and in many cuses a low words of affection and admiration for his "Dear Leo." Another faux menage of the eamo character is that of Sir Frederick Johnstone, the well-known sporting baronet. On several occasions, wlion the i'rinco had paid his customary spring visit to tho Riviera, ho has stayed with Sir Frederick at the lattor's lovoly villa near Nice. bag actod ^riiMfcirMoWg Prince, and figures as tho mistress both of the establishment and of Its proprietor, is Dady Capol Brooke, now a widow, but formerly tho wlfo of the late Sir Capel Hrooke, from whom iho eloped with Sir FrederickJJohnstone. Although both nho herself and her lover are now free to legalize th'oir relations by marriage, thoy seem to fear their matrimony would destroy the piquancy of their relations, and accordingly have determined to dispenso with its bonds. Although they live openly toeethor, their liaison is ol the most shauiolesa and public character, it docs not prevent either tho Princo of Wales figuring openly as their guest, nor does it interfere with 'Sir Frederick's status as one of the most welcome guests at Marlborough House. Ho goes there by tho name of "Freddy," and is troato'd by tho entire family as tho Amico Delia W1U3U. AN ILLEGITIMATE 'CIIILD. On the occasion of ono ol lils stays at Snndringham, throe years ago.liis followguests included the Conntess of Dudley, and their niece, Miss Violet Mordaunt, who has since become Viscountess Weymouth. The meeting was, to say the least, poculiar. For Lady Dndley is tho sister and Violot Mordaunt the duughtcr of the notorious Jjidy Mordaunt, Sir Frederick was therefore brought face to face undor the roof of his fellow co-respondent, the Prince of Wales, with tho girl who had been declared by the courts to bo his child, and not that of Sir Charles Mordaunt, and ho was ablo to convince himself thnt'his daughter's superb eyes showed no trnce of that terrible blindness which threatened her at her birth, and was pubHclyJattributcd in court to the state of health of both Sir Frederick Johnstone and of the ro inoise-stricken motlior. Another very queationabio momber of tho Prince's ontonrago was?I use tho past tense. for ho is dead now?tho Polish adventurer who figured so long and so prominently asCount Jaracewski iu London society. The I'rinco picked him up Bomewhcro on tho Continent, and without taking thn trouble to investigate his antecedents invested liim with tho halo of membership of tho Mnrlborongh Houso sot. One mornljig tho Count was found dead in bed, a suicide by means of cither a pistol bullet or poison. I forget which. Beforo aoon his aparments and papers had boen ransacked by General hlr Dighton Probynj who hastened over from Marlborough House a few minuted after tho death had been mado known to the l'rincoj and when tho general returned to tlto latter un iirouuiii one* wiui mm, i much to tho relief of H. B. H.,,n huge S artel of letters, photographs mnd condential documents of various kinds. Tho reason of the Count's suicide did not long remain i' secret. JIo preferred j ilenth to the exposure of his questionable) antecedents and of his false colors. Far from being a count or entitled to the namo which he hod adopted he was merely tho son of' a head servant and ! major-domo of a Prussian-l'ollsh uobloman. He had been guilty <}f forging tho latter'* namo and of cmbenling'hls monov, bosides possessing an unsavory record in connection with cards. And yet for several years he had figured both in England and abroad OS ono of tho Princes ilearest friends, and had oven enjoyed the privilege of wearing the IUJU1 UHMVUf _ BrltUh Finance*.

Iniiifntitiii! of a Cumlnor Ci-InIm in ParlW xuobjary Affair*. London, Juno 21.?Tho position of. tho-Queon in English politics is usually supposed to bo generally passive. In foreign politics Blip has boon known to bo greatly interested, but with internal English politics she has hitherto been credited with interfering little. At an opportuno moment, whoa tho conservative scheme of local self-government for Iroloiid is about, to be contrasted with Sir. Gladstone's home-rulo proposals, hSr majesty has permitted the publication of a confidential-communication which sliosent to the Arch Bishop of Canterbury on tho eve of another crisis in Irish political history?the introduction of u bill for the die-establishment of tho church in Ireland.
