THE VOL. 20. 1 CJLXDU) LETTER. Injlls Writes to a Delegate. Chicago, I1L, June 23. The follow ing letter from Senator John J. Iugalls has been received by a member of the Kansas delegation in the Republican convention : "Vice-Presidenfs Chamber, Wash mgton, D. C, June 16. Your of ISth at hand. It does not make much dif ference who ia nominated in my judg ment The candidate will cut but a small figure in the fight We can elect anybody or we shall fail. The least conspicuous, and therefore the least complicated man, will be the best somebody like Hayes in 1876. Among all the men named there Is not one 'leader;' no one whose personal or historical relation to the people would make a difference of 1000 votes in the canvass. Sherman, Allison, Harrison, etc , have records that would be awk ward on the tariff, the currency, the Chinese question, etc. Depew's con nection witn railroads and corpora tions would be a heavy load, especial ly in the agricultural States. We might as well nominate Gould or Vanderbilt at once. My impression is that Alger or Greshain come nearer filling the bill than any of the others, with some fellow like Phelps, of New Jersey, who could reach the conserva tive forces of the East and get contri butions from the manufacturers and Wall street. But yon can judge much better than I what is best after con sulting with the delegates. "I have the nse of the wires during the convention, by the courtesy of the company, and yon can therefore tele graph me fully at all times if anything of interest transpires. Truly yours, John J. Inoaua" MOW IT OBTAINED PUBLICATION. Special Dispatch to Globo-Dcmocrat Chicago, 111., J une 28. It is acknowl edged by Kansaus that the letter pub lished to-day coming from Senator In- galls to a member of the delegation, in which some assertions are mado which are classed by his friends as indiscreet, is genuine, and it is claimed that the document got out through the treach ery of a few men in the delegation who are personally opposed to Mr. Ingalls, and did all In their power to prevent his receiving a complimentary vote in the convention. They decline to give the name of the dolegate who received the letter, but state that he is not to blame for its getting out. The way it happened was this : When the delegate received tho mis sive from the Senator he read it, called a messenger and dispatched the docu ment to Gov. Osborne, Chairman of the delegation, for perusal and return. A party who saw the letter followed tho mosscngcr boy from the room, overtook him in tho hall of the fourth floor of the Palmer House, snatched the missive from tho little fellow's baud, aud disappeared in tho crowd. The boy was badly frightened, and thought the best WRy out of the diffi culty was to keep still. Thorefore he did not report tho occurrence at head quarters nor tho sender of the message, aud nothing more was heard of it until it appeared in print this morning, crcatlug a decided sensation and much bitter feeling among tho Kansans. Washington Sang For the Twins. From the Independent. There is a story of Washington, told me by a descendant of the nncestor who is in the tory, which represents tho great General In the pleasant fam ily lifo wo have all liked to contem plate, and not as the grand man and hero at the head of his army. It was when Woshingtou, after the Kcvolu tionary war, was traveling through Connecticut nnd visited Hartford staying at tho Bull's tavern there. A' boy came into the kitchen and snld : " I waut to see Gen Washington."' The functionary on duty did not propose to let any mere boy see Gen. Washington merely for the asking, and said as much. But I have a note for him," remonstrated the boy. " From whom V My father, Chief Justice Ellsworth." "Oh well," nnd tho functionary re lented. Gen. Washington read the uoto and said to the boy: "Your father invites mc to diuncr; I will do more than that ; I will go and break fast with him." And ho did the next morning. And after breakfast he took tho twin sons of the Justice, each on a iiuoe, and sang them "Tho Derby Uain," nn old English ballad, begin ning, U waa on a market day." and setting forth that tho ram of Derby was so big that tho birds built their nests on the wool on his back, and the butcher who undertook to kill him was drowned in the blood. The body of the boy Lake Williams' who was accidontly drowned while bathing in the lake near tho lower compress Sunday evening, was recov ered yestorday. Coroner Autcr hold an Inquest as to the of death, and the jury rendered the peculiar verdict that "the deceased came to his death from drowning, whether accidental or in tentional, to the jury unknown." The remains were buried by Undertaker Jacobs. Commercial Herald. Miss Kate Bishop, an actress iu Aus tralia, wears a silver bracelet on her loft arm night and day. Her only sis ter locked it there before she sailed for America to get married. The ship went down with all hands, and the key Is with the drowned girt. GREENVILLE, Silled By the Eleetrie Wire. Times-Democrat. The wind which accompanied the heavy rain hist evening caused one of the wires running along St Charles street to work loose from its fastenings and sag down into the street There it hung, with certain death to man aud beast in its loop. William Gibbons, who drives carri age Xo. 113, came along just at this moment He was on his box, dripping wet, and as he neared- Xo. 19 St Charles, near Common street, where he usually stands, he pulled up sharply and with force sufficient to cause his off horse to open his mouth quite wide. By some strange and unfortunate com bination of circumstances the wire swung into the animal's mouth, and coming in contact with the bit estab lished a curreut of electricity, killing the poor horse instantly. It dropped without a struggle, dragging its mate with it The current of electricity was transmitted through the body of the dead horse into its living mate, and the poor animal writhed, turned, twis ted and kicked in excruciating agony. Gibbons, no doubt unconscious of the cause of the trouble, jumped from the seat and attempted to release hU team. A number of citizens also started to aid him, when some one, seeing what had caused the instantaneous death of the horse, shouted loud enough to be heard; "Look out for the electric wire I " The words of warning were not unheeded, the crowd drew back and from a safe distance witnessed a most remarkable and horrible scene. All the conditions being favorable the full force of electricity on the wire was conveyed into tho horse's mouth. The bit was heated to a white heat and white flames shot from between the animal's jaws. The sickening odor of burning flesh tilled tho street, aud men turned away in horror. For a minute or two, or perhaps for a longer period of time, the mouth of tho dead vuimal burned, and then tho harness, as wet as it was, caught fire and was burned to a crisp. Finally, having burnt its way out, tho wire dropped from the dead horse's mouth, aud its dozed and bewildered mato struggled to its feet The Downfall of Blaine. X. Y. Timos. Yesterday morning camo. Thcro had been a conference among all the Blaine leaders and somo friends of tho other candidates. It was believed that the time was ripo and tho plot would bo successfully carried out. A couple of cablegrams were received by Mr. Uoutcllo of Mr. Blaine's delegation and published. They begged his friends not to nail his rival's cars to tho pump, and his frlcuds took them ns they were meant. They understood perfectly Mr. Blaiuo's attitude, his wishes, his hopes, his intentions. Ho was glued to a tel egraph instrument in Scotland fever ishly waiting for word that he had been "drafted" by his party. The ser viceable Carnegie had with his own hand, after a consultation with the great leader In the chaste recesses of his bedroom, written a statement for trausmlsslou to Chicago that Mr. Bluino would accept the nomination. The dispatches from Edinburg only con tinned tho feeling this statement had aroused. Up to this moment .Mr. Dlnino is not known, at aay time, to any one, to havo said that under no circumstances and on no condi tions would ho bo tho Itepublcau candidate. But tho Blaine managers bad gone too far. In seeking to strengthen Harrison sufllcicntly to de feat Sherman, they had run tho risk of the combination on Harrison that fi nally came. They had not counted on the auger their dupes would feel when they saw that they were being duped. They had no just conception of the bitter contempt and hatred lor their tricky leader that they had aroused. Aud so it comes about that after an unparalleled exhibition of duplicity and selfishness, of mingled greed and cowardice, Mr. Blaine has been driven from his tation at tho telegraphic in strument, utterly bnllled nnd defeated, with the consclounsuess that ho lias won, as he deserved, tho scorn of men whom he had betrayed. . nigh Priced Stock. Sixty-four yearling colls, tho pro duce of 8. B. Haggin's breeding farm in California, were sold in this city Monday afternoon for a total of $112,- 775, an average for tho lot of $1,763.10 each. One of these, King Thomas, by King Ban, out of Maud Hampton, Lucious O. Appleby of this city secured on a bid of $38,000, a sum hi excess of any before paid for any yearling in any country in the world. Tho youngster is a brother of the famous Ban Fox, and has been resold to Sena tor Hearst of California at an advance. The more tho Republicans look into the record of their Presidential nom inee tho less they seem to like it and him. His pronounced readiness, while ho was in the Senate, to admit China men without restraint into tliis coun try and to confer upon them the right of suffrage, as well as tho part ho took in seeking to legalize the importation of foreign- contract labor, is going somewhat against the lirtdical grain. They begin ruefully to speculate on the possibility of losing a Stale or two on the coast from tho choice they have made. N. O. States. H H WASHINGTON COUNTY. 1 KEmcKT E0H1HE. 1 Tooji: Man Elopes with UU Ok a Sbter Without Knowing It. A telegram from Mrs. Eliza George, living ten miles from Louisviile, Ky, to Chief of Detectives Yankee liligb. developed a most remarkable romance. The telegram ordered Capt. lillgh to airegt, at all hazards, Madeline George, sixteen years of age, who had eloped with Robert Stephens, jr, a neighbor, eighteen years old. The young couple were arrested in a Justice's office. where they had gone to be married. The boy said he and Madeline were desperately iu love with each other. Six hours later Mrs. Eliza George came to tow n w ith her face flushed with excitement Twenty years airo. the woman said her father died, leav ing her his farm aud several thousand dollars on the condition that she never marry. Before and after the old man' death, Eliza had been assiduously courted by Henry Stephens, The young woman loved him, but uuder the provisions of her father's will could not marry. At last Cupid provided a way ; aud Stephens and Miss George were married uuder the names of A. Goodman and Sallio White. For three years they lived together secretly, two children beiug born to them. They then separated, Mrs. Stephen taking her maiden name and the younger child. She returned to her country home, while Stephens took the eldest w hose namo was Henry. Some years later Stephens gave up his busi ness in Louisville and moved to the couutry, buying a farm adjoining that of Mrs. George. The children grew up to gether without knowing their relation ship and soon becamo desperately in lovo. The parents tried to separate tho children, but without success. Madaline and Henry finally e!opod, and their arrest Just in the nick of time prevented a union between brother and sister. Where Drums are Made. Tho casual visitor would never sus pect that tho quiet, rural village of Granville, Mass., sends out into the world thousands of noise-making in struments, cheap, it is truo, but none tho less welcoino to tho average boy. This placo can practically be called the centre aud heart of tho drum-making business. It turned out 200,000 last year. It was in 18A3 that tho Idea of engaging in drum making first suggest ed itsolf to a Mr. Cooley. He had becu to Pittsllcld, w here a relative of his, Samuel Cooley, was mnking n few drums in an old bain. Disgusted with tho business, Samuel Cooley was about to throw It up ; ho offered it to his nephew, John, with tho remark that there was doubtless money lu it. Bo turning to Granville, J. P. Cooley broached tho subject to his friend Noble, whom he found a ready listener. They went to work, mado a drum, which is still cherished nt tho old shop, took it to Boston, showed it, received orders, and coming back, Invested $t 60 iu material, and thus sturted probably tho biggest concern of its kind in the world. Tho first year, 18i 1, they built a little shed, and altogether turned out 150 drums, mainly of one pattern. Year by year tho business increased, their qriartcrs had to be enlarged, their help multiplied, nnd to-day 125 men and women are kept busy turning out daily about 1200 drums. Within tho last few years tho busi ness has greatly developed. Tho old fashioned drum with wooden barrel, which was formerly tho only kind in tho market, is being rapidly supplanted by the neater and lighter model with tho tin barrel. Wannmakcr on Advertising. John Wanamakor, the great Phila delphia millionaire nicrchnnt, recently spoke as follows about advertising: "I never in nil my lire used such a thing as a poster or hand-bill. My plan for fifteen years has been to buy so much space in a newspaper and fill it up with whnt I want I would not give an advertisement in a newspaper of 500 circulation for 6000 dodgers or posters. If I wanted to sell cheap jew elry or run a gambling scheme, I might use posters, but I would not Insult a descent rending public with hand-bills. Tho class of pcoplo who read such things arc poor mntcrial to look for support in mercantile affairs. I deal directly witli the publisher. I say to him, 'How long will you let mo run a column of matter through your paper for $100 or 5000 as the case may be. I let him do the figuring aud if I think ho is not trying to tako more than his share I givo him tho copy. I lav aside the profits on a particular line of goods for advertisicg purposes. Tho first year I laid aside $3,000 ; last year I laid aside and spent $40,000. I have done better this year, and shall in crease the sum as the profits warrant it. I owe my success to tho newspa pers, and to them I shall freely give a certain profit of my yearly business." Tho Builders' Gazette.' A QIKRTT The rcDort on the river and harbor bill submitted to the Senate by Mr. Frve. mado the statement that 80 per cent of the whole sum expended goes to waee earners, and it Is therefore well and immediately distributed. Is it this reason, because this bill offers so little marein fur speculation and the money powers that it is so bitterly op posed by members of said classes ? iJ H 'X I f si i. 1 1 JL. 1 JL LE MISS.. SATURDAY, JULY 7. 1SSS Sinjul.tr Suicide. By Telegraph to the Il. rald. Boston, June William II. Gibson, a youug ihcinUt and electri cian, employed by the Boston Elec trical Company, shot himself ia the temple last night at his rooms, "o. 11 Wellington street, because his new wedding suit did not arrive from the tailor's iu time for him to attend the ceremony. He was found by his landlady this morning with blood flowing from a pistol shot wound iu his head. He was conscious, but could not speak. An ambulance conveyed him to the city hospital, w here he died to-night. For the past two years he had been engaged to Miss Ullian Chandler, the niece of CoL W. 11. lmg, of Chelsea, Early this week he engaged rooms on Wellington street, telling the landlady that he should bring his bride there to live iu a short time. All day Tuesday and Wednesday he was going iu and out of the house, seeming very much distressed. Yestorday forenoou he said to a woman of tho house : "1 ex pect my wedding suit to arrive at any moment The tailor promised to have it here Monday. It is not done yet. I must get it right away for I am to be married to-ulght aud caunot stand up in a business suit" Ho shook badly and wept w hile he told the story. The ceremony was to tako place at seven o'clock. As noth ing was seen of Gibson after that hour the landlady thought ho had obtained his clothes and gone to tho wedding. Miss ( handler, tho bride elect, wait ed with her bridal robes on until after ten o'clock. Tho guests were assem bled, tho clergyman lu waiting aud the wedding banquet spread. At last messengers were sent to Gibson's home, but tho servants could tell nothing of his whereabouts. Police men and messengers scoured tho city all night to no effect Miss Chandler joiuod iu the limit. About nlue o'clock tlds morning word was brought to the Chelsea home that young Gibson was dying at tho City llospitul. Miss Chandler nud Colonel Long visited him. When he saw them he denied thut his uauio was Gibsou, and said he was Charles J. Klce a clerk employed by Brown, Dur rell & Co. Though both Miss Chandler and Colonel Long identified him he refused to acknow ledge his namo and protested that tie never knew any one by the namo of Gibson. This afternoon the suit in which ho was to have been married lu arrived and ho will bo buried in it A DELUGE IN MEXICO. St. Louis, Juno 26. A special dis patch from tho City of Mexico says telegraphic communications, which has been interrupted for several days by tho floods, has been restored and the particulars of the terrible disaster on tho line of tho Mexican Central railroad, particularly nt Ion and Silao, are ob tained. During tlio past two days the table lands between here aud Zncato cas havo been visited by unprecedented rains. Every Mountain rivulet along tho central railway for moro than two hundred miles has been converted into a distructivo torreut. The valleys pre sent the nppcarance of lakes. Many cities nnd towns have been Inundated, aud Leon and Silao have been partial ly destroyed. Tho first intimation re ceived In this city of the disaster in the Xorth was a telegram from Silao, da'cd the 18th. It said: ''It commented raining hoavily hero yesterday after noon and continued all night, raising the Silao river out of Its banks, breaking at tho north end of the town and pass ing through tho stroets with Irresisti ble forco aud volume. Most houses here being of adobe, as soon us they were saturated with water, began to fall. About 325 houses have been de stroyed. The station buildings arc oc cupied by homeless people, who arc unable to obtain anything to eat except watermelons and fruit found floating in the water. Fifteen hundred lives wero lost by tho Inundation, aud that 1,000 bodies havo been recovered. Leon Is a city of 100,000 inhabitants, and a large part of It is in ruins. Tho Mexican collector of customs at Paso del Xorto received an official dis patch stating that 100 miles of tho Mexican Central railroad is impassa ble, and that it w ill bo ten days before mails can get through. The First Run, On the 20th lust, the first run of the canning factory was- made. Beans wero processed. The machinery acted admirably and did its work rapidly and satisfactorily. So soon, however, as the capping machine is brought into action the rapidity of tho work will be increased. Delay in delivery of somo essentials has necessitated a delay in using this machine. Beans are being offered the company in liberal quanti ties. Care should be taken to bring iu none but straight unblemished stock. Speckled beans are not wanted and will not bo received.

Its candidates arc incomparably superior to those or the Republicans, aud the announcement of purposes with which it enters tho eon test is more satisfactory, and in respect to the dominant issue is firmly right when the other Is hopelessly wrong. As regards civil reform, though wo have had occasion to criticise tho pre sent Administration for somo of its errors nnd failures, we havo greater confidence lu Mr. Cleveland's sincerity nud fidelity than in tho written profes sions ot a party whoso leaders are un- ablo to speak of the reform without sneer.

The soup was served, and then came a servant to the guest's side, holding a large bowl which contained simply lumps of ice. The weather w as hot, for this happened In liiilui and cold drinks were an uuspeak- able boon. The new made officer stared at the the bowl. The servant asked : " Ice , sir ? " The colonel chatted merrily to him ou his left. Others of the party began to seo the dilemma. " lee, sir? " asked the waiter. The guest. In ignorant desperation, took a portion of tlie lee aud put It iu his soup. A smile played lightly ou the face of tome of tho younger officers, w hen the bowl was offered to the col onel, who went ou chatting with the guest, and without moving a muscle of his face also dropped a piece of ice into his soup. Those who came afterward, however, took their cue from their colonel or let tlie bowl pass; and the young man breathed a sigh of relief us he thought that alter all he had none the right tliitig.
