ood Flows in Camden, N. J.,
After Polls Close.
/Pugilist Joe Goddard Perhaps Fatally
Shot in Fight With Constable—Re
turns Indicate Loudenslager is Nom-
inated for Congress.
Camden, N. J., July 29.—The prim
ary elections for delegates to the cou
iVention of the First congressional
district of New Jersey were held yes
terday in Camden, Gloucester an 1
Salem counties, which comprise the
'district. The candidates for the nom
ination are Henry C. Loudenslager,
the present congressman, and J. A.
(Van Sant. The contest has been onj
of the most bitter ever held in south
ern New Jersey. The polls wore open
from 5 p. m. to S p. m. and the three
hours were marked with serious fight
ing. One man was killed In this city
and Joe Goddard. the well known
heavyweight pugilist, was probably fa
tally shot while electioneering, an
other man was dangerously stabbed
in this city, and a fourth man receiver
stab wounds at "Dog Corner," near
Goddard was at a voting place In
Pensauken township when he was
Bhot. He was with a number of men
Who were tiaveling from one polling
place to another. The pugilist got
Into a quarrel with a colored constable
named Robert Washington. It is al
leged that Goddard assaulted the con
stable with a baseball bat and that
the coloped man in self defense shot
Goddard in the head. The constable
surrendered himself to the police and
the wounded prize fighter was brought
to Cooper hospital here, where the
say he may die.
Near the polling place Constable
Isaac Fowler, while in a fight, was
stabbed twice. His wounds, though
painful, "are not considered serious.
There was considerable trouble in
Pensauken township and at Morchant
Ville, and a number of persons wore
badly beaten.
The most serious affray occurred at
Third and Beckett streets in this
city. Each side had a crowd at the
polling place at that point, and a
general riot was started. When it
was all over it was found that a man
named John Morrissev had been
shot through the heart by some un
known person and that a policeman,
named Harry Miller, had received two
cuts on the head and a probably fatal
stab wound in the left lung. There
•were a numb.er of other persons hurt
in the fight, but not. seriously so.
Almost complete returns show that
Loudenslager will have a majority of
about twenty-five delegates.
Delegates to State Convention Hasten
ing to Des Moines.
Des Moines. July 29.—Delegates ar
rived in large numbers for the Re
publican state convention, which will
be held tomorrow. Little attention is
being paid to candidates, all the talk
being of the platform. One element
favors a reiteration of last year's plai
form, which was written by George
E. Roberts, director of the mint, and
the other insists on dropping the fol
lowing from the plank dealing with
trusts and combinations:
"We favor any modification of the
tariff schedules that may be required
to prevent their affording shelter to
Lafayette Young of Des Moines is
leading the forces who favor the elim
ination of the utterance quoted and
Governor Cummins and his lieuten
ants insist on a reaffirmation of last
year's platform.
Henderson Friendly to Millers.
Dubuque, la., July 29.—Speaker
IHenderson, in an interview on the
reports of the grievances of the Na
tional Millers' association, on the
ground that I10 prevented the passage
of the London dock bill, said: "I had
not heard anything of it until Satu
day last, when I first saw an article
on the subject. I was greatly sur
prised to see anything of the kind
from the millers, whose frien4 I have
been all the time and I tried to get
their bill through. The bill is a Just
one and ought to pass, and I have no
doubt It will pass at the short session
of congress."

Pittsburg, July 29.—Fire broke out
early this morning in the paint and
glass house of DeNoon Bros. By the
time firemen reached the scene tbp

Three Persons Killed by Lightning
and Much Property Damage.
Pittsburg, July 29.—A terrific thun
der snd lightning storm, with a heavy
rain, visited this section last evening,
causing three deaths and much prop
erty damage. The killed: Mrs. Kate
Walsh. Francisco Imperatora, Costello
Mrs. Walsh died from shock, caused
by lightning. The two Italians were
of a gang of ninety working at Unity.
When the siorm broke in its fierce
ness, the men sought shelter under
tome trees nearby. Lightning struck
one of the big oaks and the two men
were killed instantly. Five others of
their fellow-workmen were severely
injured, but will recover. Throughout
the city and suburbs the storm In
flicted considerable damage in th
way of overflowing sewers, flooding
cellars, etc. In Hazlewood the Pres
byterian church was struck by light
ning and the steeple thrown over. At
Hays station Street's-, run overflowed
its banks. Quite a number of resi
dents had to flee for their lives, SJ
niickly did the rise in the creek come.

Heavy Loss to Crops.
Springfield, 111, July 28.—Lacey
levee, near Havana, will be repaired,
it is hoped, in time to save some of
the crops that it protected before the
rising waters of the Illinois rivei
broke through. A dam has been built
that turns the waters from Spoon
river. Farmers are greatly dissatis
fied with the levee commissioners for
not keeping the pumps going, as the
claim that by so doing much of the
crops could have been saved. Anions
the gre^t losses is the Connors hemp
fields. The entire damage to all ter
ritory in the neighborhood of Havana
is estimated at $250,000.
Flood Situation in Texas.
Dallas. Tex., July 29.--While there
were scattered heavy rains through
out the state yesterday, flood condi
tions continue to improve, and rail
road officials state they nope to have
their lines in shape for regular traffic
within a short time. The water Is
slowly receding at Big Springs, and a

Explorer DeWindt and Party
Cross Siberia.
After traveling for six months
across the bleak steppes and frozen
mountains of Siberia. DeWindt 13
ready to report that a railway prac
tically connecting the eastern and
western hemisphere is a feasible
project. DeWindt left Paris Dec. 10'
last and arrived in Seattle by way of
Bering straits, the Yukon, Dawson
and Skagway.
His party encountered groat perils
from hunger and cold and attribute
to the presence of Americans 111 north
ern waters the fact that they ar«
again safe in a civilized country.
Tho expedition from which the
party is returning was undertaken at
the instance of Alfred J. Pearson,
owner of the London Daily Express,
who wished to have a representa
tive make a trip by land from Paris
to New York, a feat which had not be
fore been accomplished. Mr. De
Windt asserts that the overland jour
ney was much more hazardous and
difficult than he expected and that he
would decline the trip again.
DeWindt left the Trans-Siberian
railway at Irkutsk. From there a
course almost directly north was fol
lowed to the borders of the Arctic
ocean. The trail was along the Ler.iv
river, which is one of the great rivers
of the continent of Asia. On the Lena
a great find of gold has been made,
but none but Russians are permitted
to mine it. Much of this part of the
trip was made behind reindeer. Near
the mouth of the river dogs were pro
cared and tbpy hauled the four men
the remainder of the way to Cape
The members of the expedition
were treated with kindness, but in
many places the natives were suffer
ing from famine and disease and could
do little if anything for their visitors.
Many prosperous cities exist on the
map along the route which the leader
of the party had selected. When these
points were readied, nothing but a
few scattered huts and half a dozen
wretched natives were all that re
mained of their greatness. The peo
ple of all of the northern part of tlie
continent have been attracted to the
coast nearest America, as there they
can trade with the American whalers
and subsist more easily than in their
inland towns and villages.
For several hundred miles directly
east of Bering straits Mr. DeWindt
found many settlements of the natives
and here he found food and assist
ance. Had he not met the Siberians
here he believes he could never have
reached Bering straits, and so his res
cue is due to American traders.
Discussing the trip, he said: "I
should say that the railway project
is feasible, though no railway will
follow the route we took. It would
go several hundred miles to the south
and through a rich mineral country.
Privately. received the information
that the Russians are surveying st»h
a line, but I am not at liberty to say
exactly what course it will take. The
only difficulty which is in the way is
in transferring at Bering straits."
Writ of Conspiracy Issued by Irish
Members Against Landlord Trust.
New York. July 29.—A Tribune dis
patch from London says that a writ
of conspiracy issued by Messrs. Red
mond, O'Brien, Dillon and Davi't
against the trustees of the new Irish
landlord trust has created a great
sensation in Ireland. The Freeman's
Journal promises that it will be the
biggest constitutional hearing in
Ireland si%se the Parnell trial in 1882.
Colombia Revolution Near End.
Panama. July 29.—General Salazar,
the governor of Panama, has received
a proposal iropi General Herrera that
the revolutionary forces of his com
mand lay down their arms. He has
decided to send today on board the
British steamer Cana a commission
to negotiate with General Herrera and
there is a possibility that the terms
offered by GeneraJ Salazar will be
accepted by the revolutionists.

Refreshing Rest and Hos^uito Rites.
Ciislnnaii in liis Glory.
Having but recently returned from
a brief outing at Wall Lake, we are
able to give full particulars as to the
popular report. Wall Lake is situated
in the prohibition co.inty of Sac. This
probably accounts for the presence of
such a quality of water. The residents
do not drink water and so a large
supply has accumulated which they
now rent out to tourists. What the
people of Sac have been drinking
while this 1900 acre pound has been ac
cumulating, deponent saith not, but we
are informed that Col. Pabst of Mil
waukee has a most kindly fpeling for
that community and that his repre
sentatives make frequent visits and
further that the visits are not barren
of results, Wall Lake is surrounded
by a lew stones and a large quantity
of mud and one merry-go
round. The Denison campers, es
pecially Cushman, have almost ex
hausted the fishing. The fish are cat
tish or bullheads. They have horns
which hurt when you take them from
the hook and they average in size from
four inches and a quarter to four inches
and a half. They are edible. The
La.se is sometimes quite rough. Judge
Conner can give full particulars as to
this. The Judge has always tried to
keep out of the Eleventh district but
it came pretty near being his finish
last Friday when he attempted to
make passage from Lakewood to
Lakeview during the worst kind of a
storm. He together with the rest of
the party were forced to returned to
Lakewood, drenched to the skin, and
the tales that are told of the efforts EO
obtain a suitable outfit of dry clothes
for the half drownded M. C. would be
mighty funny had not the accident
come so near being serious. Judge
Conner's exploit reminds us of some
of our own and leads us to offer the
advice to our readers, never leave
home without an ext-r pair of trousers.
If one tears his coat he can carry it
carelessly over his arm and complain
of the heat. If one soils the bosom of
his shirt a large tie or a well placed
kerchief will hide it Mr. Simpson of
Kansas has even revealed to us how a
statesman can get to Congress without
socks but pants, that's differeni. It
has been well said that the lower the
pants the higher the civilization. Some
of our society ladies go so far as to
say thatthe lower the gown the higher
tne civilization, but we do not know
about that. As tj the trousers pro
position it is true. From the breech
out of the savage to the well regulated
length of the twentieth century panta
loon may not be far in linear ineasur
mentbut itrepresents a far cry in civili
zation. From the day when we sat
demurely in a corner with our legs
modestly draped iu a traveling shawl
while our pants were being mended to
the day when we split our trousers
from "ear to ear" so to speak in our
haste to make a train, we have had
this maxim of prudence impressed
upon us and now, while we may carry
only a change of collars and a mileage
book in addition, we never neglect the
extra pair of what no gentleman should
be without.
We had a good time at Wall Lake,
the blisters on our palms give evidence
that "we seen our duty and we done
k". No one caught any larger !ish
storit than we did and we tried our
best to believe that the water waa not
cold and to keep our teeth from chat
tering when wo went in bathing.
Speaking of'bathing we felt genuine
sorrow for the girl who had forgotten
her bathing suit und could not go in.
But ?he took our advice and sent down
a two cent stamp and had it mailed to
her sti she was able to appear on the
next day.
The crop of mosquito is said to be
oae of the best ever raised in the vi
c.nity. Denison left some of its best
blood with them. Our hands look like
a map of Iowa with the school houses
marked In red.
We want to impress upon our friends
however that we had a good time and
what is more a good rest. We arrived
