President Marlon lliitlcr, of the National Farmers' alliance, In an interview yesterday on the coming presidential campaign, said: What 1 would like to see come about is for a national convention made up of democrats and people'a party men from the south and west, nnd those from the north who want to join, nominate a presidential candidate and elect him. The people's party out west Is nothing more than a pirty of converted democrats. On account of tholr prujudloo against the name they will not mimlt being democrats, but ihey are as good democrats as the Joffersonlun democrats of the south. The real democrats of the south and populists of the west have the same principles, and the ao-called democrats of western states are nothing more than gold bug democrats, and have novor yet done any thing to elect a democratic president. Those western populists, or Jofforsonian democrats, will not go Into a democratic oonvontlon with that name, but If a convention of American party or Jeffersonlan democracy were called they would combine with democrats of the south to nominate and elect a president. I would like to sec this combination effected In time for the campaign of IHIW, but If It is not done by that time It Is simply a mutter of a few years before It will bo done. LOOTED BV MINERS.

TorKKA, Kan., July la-Tha state prison board has decided to begin the Investigation of the boodle oharges against Warden Chase, of the peniten tiary, on July M at Lansing. President Cleveland issued another proclamation on the 9th similar to the one for Chicago, warning all unlawful assemblages to disperaa In Colorado, Utah, New Mexioo, California and the other far wetttra itatea, firing and overturning cars; heads were cracked and small fry brawls, mostly the result of too much bad whisky, were frequently reported at police headquarters, There waa, how ever, no conoerted effort at incendiar ism or violence, although at a number of places individual tin were fired, several of which were destroyed. A coal train on the Eastern Illinois waa ditched at Root street by a switch be ing misplaced after the engine and four cars had passed over. The work of clearing the tracks la the Orand Trunk yards at Forty-ninth and Ashland, where debrla from the hundreds of burned oars littered the tracks, was completed yesterday under police and military protection, the monotony, however, being enlivened by occasional police raUles when the gatherings of idlers watching the work became two large and threatening. At 4 p. m, when the finishing touches had been put on the work, nearly all the onlookers had disappeared and the troops, laborers and police were with drawn.' Ko sooner had they got well out of sight, however, than a gang of 800 men suddenly appeared, and with crowbars and shovels tore up about an eighth of a mile of the track before word could be got to the police department. They lied before another oharge of the police, and the work of repair is again being pushed forward. At Hammond, Ind. , adjoining the city on the southeast, was the theater of tho day's greatest excitement. Here the rioting of Saturday night was re sumed and finally became so serious that a company of United States troops went out there. Thoy preserved peace for several hours, but the mob increased in size and finally became demonstra tive, so that it necessitated charging on them by the troops, with the result that one man was killed, two badly wounded and a number of others re ceived serious injuries. All the reserve foroe of police officers on the west side had been detailed to the yards of the Chicago, Burlington & Qulney and tho Wisconsin Central roads earlier in the day, und nothing lay in the path of the frenzied strikers and their friends. Shortly after 3 o'clock John M. Egan, at the general munugers' headquarters, sent the following message to Chief llrcnnnn: "Is there no way that we can secure protection from the mobs In our yards? They arc burning cars and destroying property in the yards at llalstead, Meagher and Morgan streets, and not a policeman can be found." Chief Drennan at once transmitted the message to the inspector, who de tailed a sqund of thirty police ottlcers to the scene of the disturbance. The fire department had been called out on three different occasions, each time to extinguish (lames in freight cars. 'ihlrteen oars were burned, The mob gathered about the firemen when they arrived in response to an alarm and greatly interfered in the work of ex tinguishing the fires. The arrival of the police had but lit tle effect The blue coats were hooted at and pelted with stones, The crowd numbered nearly 3,000, and was made up of the toughest clement of the city. Well-known thieves and other desper ate men, whom the police of the Max well street station have hod consider able trouble, mingled in the mob, and took an active part in the disturbance. The police finally made a determined charge and drove the mob to adjoining streets and from freight yards, olub blng the loaders freely. The police re mained on duty all the afternoon, and the strikers were kept from doing further violence. The mobs commenced to collect early yesterday morning in the yards of the Chicago, Burlington & Qutnoy and the Wisconsin Central tracks at Western avenue and Sixteenth street, Threats against the railroads and denunciation of the police were heard on all aides, and it only required the move of some loader to start another oonfllat. The police, numbering 150, and three com panies of the Seventh regiment were on duty all Saturday night and yester day morning when the crowd began gathering action waa at onoe taken to disperse It. The men were obstinate and at first refused to move. The po-. lice officers used their club) with telling effect and In a short time the mobs were dispersed. The militia were camped in the yards at Western avenue, and early yester day morning the boys were distributed through the yards and Instructed to deal severely with anyone caught In the act of burning or uncoupling oars. Shortly before noon smoke was seen to come from a freight oar on the Wiscon sin Central tracks. The firemen worked under a guard of police officers, and had difficulty In extinguishing the flames. No sooner was the fire out at that point than another was discovered two blocks away. This was soon ex tinguished. Alarms of this sort eon. tinued throughout the day. During the day another mob went to the yardi of the Panhandle road at Bockwell and Sixteenth streets and set fire to a number of oars. Th yanls were poorly guarded by the po lice, and when tho engine company ar rived its work was hampered by the mob until the police were reinforced.
