His Judgment is for #25,000- Two Other Claims Aggregating #1,000- Several Credit urn Not Vet Heard From—Levy Mitde Vestenliiy Afternoon. Hellab & Co., wholesale dealers in iron and steel, have failed. Sheriff Gould made a levy on tbe property and closed up tbe store house at Third and French streets at 4 30 o'clock yesterday after noon. The facts of the failure and levy were known to comparatively few persons until this morning when customers and creditors found tbe place in the hands of the appraisers appointed by the sheriff. The levy was made on a judgment of A. D. Warner, vice-president and treasurer of the Charles Warner Com pany, Mrs. E, J. Poole and Mrs. Mary C. Warner. Sheriff Gould had the writ in his hands for several days before he served it. While he did not deny that there was another big failure in prospect he re fused to divulge the name of the firm involved. Immediately after he seized the place he appointed E. O. Kettlewood and W. H. Gibbous appraisers. They are familiar with the stock, being clerks in the house. They were only given one day to do the work, and had a busy time to day. Thomas 8. Bellah is the only member of the firm. He is also president of t&e Guarantee Storage and Warehouse Com pany, the warehouse being in the rear of the four story place of business at Third and French streets. Both places are iu the sheriff's hands. Hellah Closeted With Warner. When an Evening Journal reporter called at tbe place of business this morning he was informed that Mr.Bellah was closeted with A, D. Warner at Mr. Warner's office, and that they were figuring on the accounts to see whether there could be a resumption of business. It is estimated that the two large buildings are worth from $35,000 to $38,000 and the stock on band about $17.000. Alfred D. Warner's judgmenf is a personal one and amounts to $35,000. Mrs. Mary C. Warner's claim is about $3,000, including interest. Mrs. E. J. Poole lives in Pittsburg, Pa , and brings proceedings to recover $1,000. The entire amount is money loaned to tide Mr. Bellah over his financial troubles, hut the depresslou in trade prevented accomplishment of the object. The rumor that they were snap judgments to prevent other creditors from recovering is authoritatively denied. It is stated that the oldest judgment has been on the docket for about three years and the latest one was entered nearly a year ago. There are other creditors for small amounts, but they had not secured judgment at tbe lime of issuance of the execution writ and levy. Mr. Bellah may resume business, hut he will be sold out first by his judgment creditors Any effort which may have been made to continue under the present condition has fallen through. The total liabilities of the firm cannot be ascertained. It is understood, how ever, that they are far in excess of the assets. An effort was made by an Evf.ning Journal reporter to see Mr. Bellah this afternoou. He was informed that he hid gone out of town. Work on the books began to day. A Very Old Firm. The firm is an old one. In 1S02 it traded under the name of Bye. Mc Dowell & Co. ; in 1803, McDowell & Co the place of business then be ing at Third and King streets, where the market-house stands; iu 1871 the firm name was changed to Bellah & Co in 1873, as Bellah & Elliott; in 187'J.

FAIR SPECTATORS IMITATE STRONG FOOTBALL PLAYERS Amt Carry With Them the I'oUceraen Who Attempted ti Keep Them Out of the Court Room This Morning at the Horden Trial. New Bedfoud, Mass., June 8.—The court house wasopened^ before the regu lar time this morning, aud at the main entrance tbe inquisitive females, who had swallowed their breakfasts hur riedly, or dispensed with them entirely, made one of the prettiest rushes ever seen outside of college premises. The two blue-coated repiesentatives of the local police were carried off their feet and whirled along with tbe resist less petticosted surge from below until several deputy sheriffs jumped down to their rescue aud turned the tide. The result was that the pushers were kept out entirely while those who acted in a fairly decent manner were allowed the coveted privilege of fighting for seats inside. Miss Borden was in her seat fifteen minutes before the court came in and eagerly looked over the [contents of a big official looking envelope which she afterward passed to Governor Robinson. AH her counsel were early on hand aud the jury were in their seats before conn sei for the prosecution showed up at all. Just as the court came in and tbe crier was making his proclamation. Miss Borden was passing from her seat in the dock to a seat within the bar enclosure* beside her counsel. She was obliged to stand beside Judge Blodgett while the crier was talking. Dr. Bowen was put on the stand. He denied that he had ever said Mrs. Borden died of( fright or in a faint. Cross-ex amination by Adams brought out the fact that tbe witness had pre scribed morphine for the prisoner to allay nervous excitement, first in ordi nary doges, afterward in double doses, continued to the time of her arrest and 'afterward when in the station-house and before tbe examination at tbe inquest, aud that morphine so prescribed had tendency to effect the memory and pro duce hallucination. The examination lasted little over an hour. Bridget Sullivan was recalled at 10.10 and put under rigid cross examination by ex-Oovernor Robinson. She denied that she saw Lizzie in tears when she called her down stairs, just after the murder and denied she iiad ever stated so, as shown by her testimony in the preliminary hearing. Mrs. Churchill was called at 10.30, , ; MR. EARLEY'S SIDE OF THE TROUBLE What H© Say© About the Twelfth Ward Difficulty, at Last Saturday's Elec tlon. James T. Earley, in an interview with an Evening Journal reporter said this morning, in regard to the trouble at the Third election district polls of the Twelfth ward, last Saturday. "I was chairman of the inspectors the polls. The trouble began early tbe day, whep three illegal votes were cast. Each of them was cast ou frauda ient tax receipts. 1 told the officers that they were such and said if they accepted them 1 would have them ar rested. "Adam Harris came up to vote aud had one of these receipts. 1 took it and laid it on the table so that anyone in the room could see it. 1 would not allow Harris to vote and had him arrested." ''Anderson,somotiml afterward, j umped up and demanded that he see that tax receipt, and said that if he did not that no more voting would go on at those polls, at tbe same time placing his hand over the ballot box. "I said, 'you get It if yon can.' I told him to sit down as ho was interfering with the election. He would not and called in Officer Leach. I ordered arrest and Leach doubled my authority. I read him the authority of inspectors Then Anderson said, T ordered.his arrest.' 1 said you will have to get a warrant my arrest." "Anderson was then taken out and crowd met him at the side of tbe bouse and told him not to go. 'I will die here before I go,' Anderson hallooed, "He then came in the door and manded the tax receipt again and struck me in the face. We clinched and were pulled apart by three officers. 1 Leach again that he would have to arrest him. When Anderson and the officer got outside again his comrades told not to ride in the patrol. He declared would not ride in the patrol wagon, then they took him to a wagon and sent to the City Hall." a a at of be is the of the be re se He Excavating Carts Oll'eutive.

Präsident Hu aelirrt«'. w.,«.rh , . A few minutes after 10 o clock General Grosvenor called the convention to order. A hearty greeting was accorded Hon, II. M. Daugherty when he was introduced as nermanent chairman ami in recoc-ni as permanent cuauman, an.l in recognl tionof tbe cordiality, be limited bis speech to three minutes. He said: ''We believe in tbe sincerity of onr leaders, a few of them may be here to day, but notify the Democratic party that they must face them iu the tight and they will be with us at the finish sharing in our victory. "When we young men of the party have forgotten the prayers our mothers taught us and tlie advice our fathers gave us, then, and not until then can the Democratic party even attempt to teach us that the doctrines for which Lincoln, Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Blaine, Harrison, the Shermans, Foraker and McKinley fought, were wrong and that the pre tensions of Cleveland are right. The Repubiicau party stands for a money too, and believes that any dollar should go nations. Governor McKinley s name was presented by Colonel Bob Nevins, Dayton, and seconded by Senator J. W. Nichols, of Belmont. There were other nominations, and the governor was declared the nominee, amid a scene of wild enthusiasm. The committee was appointed to conduct him to the ball aud a few moments later be made his appearance He was greeted with cheers prolonged for sêveral moments. lug the nomination expressed his grati tude for the Republican party's renewed expression of confidence.

"We are not despondent, and do not believe that the devil and the Democratic jarty can destroy the country while the republican party lives to fight them both.

Later—G overnor McKinley in accept After a brief review of state affairs the governor said: "The national admin istratiou has done nothing thus far, except to create in the minds of buslnese men a deep distrust. The financial situ ation which for the most part prevailed since the fourth March has not been improved, nor lias the financial stringency been relieved by anything the national administration lias said or done, It announced no policy, suggested no lief and given no sign of its disposition or ability to restore confidence, stop outflow of gold to foreign countries the contraction which has taken place home. The one hundred million of gold reserve which Mr. Cleveland, in bis administration, set apart as a sacred fund to redeem the greenbacks, which sum he dedicated to that purpose and no other, baa been the first, slug ularly enough, to encroach upon it—the first to drop below the hundred million line which he himself had established the only line of safety. "If it is true, as the administration boldly claims, that our financial distress is occasioned by tbe silver purchase which requires the government to 4,500,000 ounces of silver every month and issue Treasury notes therefore, why does not the administration convene Congress and repeal that law?" and see what the Democrats will do the tariff,but (he waiting and tlje anxiety end the uncertainty is paralyzttion. general revision upon a British free basis must take place if they do they promised in 1893, and upon which promises they claim their victory won.
