Bracken, of Co lumbus, for Governor An Ad dress by Hon. H. Tanbeneek, of IUInols-The Platform. Columbus, July 4. The state con vention of the people s party was called to order at the City hall at 10 o'clock a. m. Over two hundred dele gates wore present, among them being several ladles. The temporary organ ization was: Chairman, F. D. Dunakln, I'auldinp; secretary, T. J. Creamer, Clark; astdstanta, W. R. Voiles, Hamil ton, and C. O. Wilson, Franklin. The feature of the morning's session was the speech of H. E. Taubeneck, of Illinois, the chairman of the national committee. Mr. Taubeneck said it must be ap parent to every student of political economy that we are standing on the threshold of a terrible conflict, a con flict between capital and organized labor. This fact could no longer be concealed. Our politicians can no more stem the tide of discontent than they can stop a cyclone. Laws good in one age are often repealed as wrong and oppressive in the next. Our laws must conform to the new conditions. The great problem of every civilized nation Is how to prevent the centraliza tion of wealth. It must be solved n the next ten or twenty years or civil ization will be wiped off the face of the earth. Ho compared our country to Egypt and Rome, and thought if concentration of wealth is not pre vented here, the United States will soon reach its destination of revolution. The committee on permanent organ lzation reported as follows: Chairman, HughCavenaugh, Cincinnati: secretary, T. J. Creairer, Springfield; assiatant secretary, 0. R. Voiles, Cincinnati; as sistant secretary, C. Q. Nelson, drove City; sergeant-at-arma, Amos It. 1 low ers; assistant sergeant-at-nrma, J. F. Lederrr. The report was adopted. The committee on state organization reported that Mr. Thomas Ueed, of Marysville, had been selected as chair man and C. R. (Martin, of Tlflln, as secretary. The committee on resolutions sub mitted their report, as follows: THE PLATFORM. The logle of events bas forced the money question to the front and bis txposed the hy pocrisy of the sham battle over tariff schedules. It has shown that both the republican and dem ocratic parties are alike the servile tools of the money power, and that the people cannot hope irom either of them for a repeal of the Infamous -Sherman act of 1H7J, which denied a debt-burdened nation the right to maintain Its standard silver coin. We denounce tbem both for basely surrender ing the treasury administration to the control of British bankers and their Wall street agents and allies, and we pledge ourselves to resist their concerted purpose to establish for this country a single gold atandard, with all Its deadly consequenoes to the Industrial classes. We demand the restoration of the free and unrestricted coinage of silver upon a legal equality of gold at the ratio of 16 to I. We further demand that the unrestricted coinage of both metals shall be supplemented by legal tender paper money, Issued exclusively by the feJcral government hi volume. The Omaha platform was Indorsed and the following urged as cherished doctrines of the party: Municipal control of water, gas, street car, telephone and similar public franchises, and aervleea that are In tbelr nature monopolies, and the principle of home rule applied tosutes, counties and municipalities as to all matters of local concern, and governmental control of rail roads. Direct representation through the initiative and referendum and proxirtional representa tion la legislative bodies. Construction of public works without the In tervention, of contractors: the abolition of convict labor, and the taxation amendment to the eonsUtutlon were favored, as well as an amendment to give females the right of suffrage. The platform also declared in favor of free school books. After the report of the committee had been adopted, the chairman called for nominations for governor, and George F. Ebner of Franklin county presented the name of E. J. llrackcn, of Columbus. The names of Hugh Cavannugh, of Cincinnati; E. 0. Stark, of Cuyahoga, and (ien. A. J. Warner, of Washington, were presented, lie fore proceeding to ballot, the names of Cavanaugh and Warner were with drawn. A vote was tuken, resulting: Ilracken, SCO 1-fl; Stark, 228 ft-fl. Tho nomination of Ilracken wna made unanimous. The names of E. R. ltonfer, of Tus carawas, M. U. Cooley, of Vinton and L. J. Pearson, of Miami, were present ed for lieutenant governor. Mr. Hen fer withdrew his numeand the vote re sulted: Cooley 815 and Pearson 134. Mr. Cooley waa declared the nominee. William II. Taylor of Champaign county waa nominated by acclamation for atate treasurer. For attorney general, Col. J. II. Rhodes of Sandusky, waa nominated. For supreme court Judge, Captain C. T. Clark of Columbus, was nomi nated Thomas N. Hickman of Morrow county, waa nominated by acclamation for dairy and food commissioner. For member of board of public works the names of W. A.

The state committee was authorized to fill all vacancies on the ticket and the "plow ana hammer" was adopted as the emblem. The convention adjourned sine die. Hank Suspends. Omaha, July 7.

Terrible Fire In tha St. Paul Floating; Bethel H was Occupied by Poor People as a Lodglug Itou.r Nix Persona Lom Their Lives aud SI any Are Injured. St. Paul, Minn., July 6. The big steamer Bethel, anchored at the foot of Sibley street and used for the past three years as a lodging and boarding nouse for about two hundred poor peo ple, was burned to the water's edge at 11 o'clock last night There was some loss of life, among the number being an unknown woman and child. At midnight several others were miss ing, but whether they were drowned or disappeared In the crowd will not be known until to-day. At the time the Are broke out there were fifty per sons asleep on the Bethel. So rapid was the progress of the flames that those aboard the boat had to jump for their lives in their night clothes. The steamer Sydney was tied to the Bethel, but by quick work in cutting her haw ser she was floated down stream, unin-' Jured. The loss on the Bethel is tlO, 000. At 1 o'clock this morning it was known that at least six persona were burned to death.

Slocum, Gen. Jos. B. Carr, (Jen. Louis Wagner and Col. Chas. W. Hazzard. The first question that came up for consideration was the attitude of the association toward the vanda-. llstic trolley railway. The directors in a moment decided that it was their duty to oppose the electric rond and prevent the desecration of the field. The Important question was concern ing the transfer to the United States government of the lands and properties of the association. Uen. Sickles as a member of congress resigned from the chairmanship of the committee ap pointed last year to devise ways and means tor this transfer, and Hon. Ed ward Mcl'herson, of Gettysburg, was named as his successor. An effort will be made to have the next congress act in the matter and the memorial asso ciation is expecting tho (irand Army posts throughout the country to urge their congressmen to vote in favor of the bill when it la introduced. The director in tho afternoon made their annual Inspection of the monu ments on tho field. It was decided to open threo new avenues south of the Emmltsburg road for the purpose of developing that portion of the battle field and facilitating the work of the United States commissioners who are now In session here. A flag pole will be erected at (ien. Meade's headquar ters and the stars and stripes will here after float every day over the little house near Scigler's grove. SILVER CONVENTION. Resolutions Adopted. Charging the Recent Hank Failures and Uenrral Depression to Mnnlrd Classes In the Kaftt. Sii.vkk Citv, X. M.. July . The southwest silver convention was called to order at 10 o'clock yesterday. H. B. Ferguson, of Albuquerque, member of the national democratic committee of this territory, called upon all tha friends of silver to do their duty now, and in a felicitous speech compared the silver men to the Greeks under Leoni das. He was loudly cheered. Mr. Heckleuian, of El Paso, stated that if the silver mines were closed down 67 C it cent, of the gold production would e cut off. The resolutions adopted refer to the ittempt to demonetize silver In India j lor mo jjurptmc ui iiiwmmiuik me nutip- tlon of the gold stanuaro. nicy com pare the price of silver with the prod ucts of the country and charge the re cent bank failures and the general de pression In business to the policy of the mnnled classes in the east. The re peal of the Sherman law is demanded and the enactment of a law in its stead providing for the free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 15.08 to 1. The resolutions were adopted with out a dissenting voice and the conven tion adjourned to meet at Albuquerque it a time to be fixed by the executive eommlttce. In a Crltlral Condition. XgwroKT, II.

Stage, ex-city clerk ef Painesville, 0., who is alleged to have absconded from that elty with 110,000 of the city's (uads, waa arrested here yesterday. Stage took his arrest very coolly and voluntarily confessed his embezzle ment. When captured he carried on lis person much evidence of his erifne. K huge pocketbook was literally bulg ing with money.

One of Them Was Sealskin Costume, . Which Proved a Failure. Some of the stuge dresses of the pres ent epoch remain celebrated in the an nals of Parisian toilet, such as the white ball dress, embroidered with sil ver, in which Mile. Crolzette appeared in "The Sphinx," and the gown In seal skin, which was one of her later dress sensations, and which, according to the Philadelphia Telegraph, proved a failure. For the lady, when she donned that cumbrous garb, hail reached the period when she was growing very stout, and her magnificent fur dresa waa In consequence by no means be coming. It would have salted the slim proportions of Sarah Bernhardt far better than her own. Also unforgottem Is the gold-yellow ball dress, embroid ered with gold wheat ears, which was one of the series prepared for the "Di vine Sarah" when ahe first appeared la Paris in "La Dame aux Camellias." It1 ought to be remembered if only on ac count of Its price, for It cost six hun dred dollars. While Mile. Bartet was at the Vaudeville she appeared In the role of a young society girl in one of Sardou's plays In an evening dress whloh used each evening to arouse a deep, long murmur of approbation from the audience. It had a curious undine effect, being a combination of water green silk and silver gauze and water lilies and aquatic grasses, all most tastefully and artistically arranged. The dresses of the ladles of the Comedie Francaiae are always especial ly "pettlcoated" (to translate literally the French word "Juponnee") In view of the exigencies of the scene, so that there can be no turning over the trains or ungraceful prominence in the folds, no matter what vehemence of gesture or movement is required by the stage business. Anyone who has seen Oroi- sotte in the fourth act of "Le Dajai Monde," half dragged by Raymond across the stage, half crawling after him, could only wonder at the marvel ous way in which her train of black satin and jet followed her progress In serpentine convolutions and never be came disarranged in the slightest de gree. Mme. Favart, while she was the leading lady at La Comedie, used to order her dresses of Worth, and could then, on a Sunday, go down to his home at Suresnes arrayed in her new costume, and would reolte her role be fore him, so that he might judge of the appropriateness of the cut and trinv mlng for the movements and gestures exacted by the part. She was a very handsome woman in her prime, and a very stylish and graceful one as well. She has now retired from the stage, having been swept Into oblivion by the volcanolike revelation of the genius of Sarah Bernhardt. Superstitions of Brave People. If one will take the trouble to go through the names of most of the bravest people In history, he will find that they nearly all suffered from some rapcrstition or other. Napoleon Bona parte was simply eaten by supersti tions, and so was the duke of Marl borough. Literary men have always been notoriously superstitious, from the days of Dr. Johnson, who would go back half a mile if he remembered that he had omitted to touch any one of the lampposts on his, daily walk, to Dean Swift, who would never change S garment if he found that he had put it on inside out, and Lord Byron, who would get up and leave a dinner party instantly if anybody spilt the lalt. Statesmen have not been ex empt from superstitions either. Lord Beaconsfield would always take espe ;ial care to enter the house with his right foot foremost when he was going lo make a big speech. Mr. Parnell had strong prejudice against sitting in room with three candles. William Pitt would return home at once, however important his business, if he met a iross-eyed man in the street, while Sir Robert Peel would always make the tign against the evil eye with his fin- rers and thumb under similar circum- ttances. Snake Charming. In India and Africa the charmers pretend the snakes dance to the muaic, but they do not, for they never hear it A snake has no external ears, -and perhaps gets evidence of sound only through his skin, when sound causes bodies In contact with him to vibrate, rhey hear also through the nerves of the tongue, but do not at all compre hend sound as we do. But the snake's eyes are very much alive to the motions f the charmer, or to the moving irumstlcks of his confederate, and, be ing alarmed, he prepares to strike. A lancing cobra (and no other snakes lance) is simply a cobra alarmed and a a posture of attack. lie is not dano Iny to the music, but is making ready lo atrlke the charmer.
