Now, gentlemen, that is not so. I wish to see McKechnie defeated for the office this fall, because I know he has to be de feated before I or any other man can be elected. I pledge you I will do what is in my power to defeat him. If I should be the nominee of the republican con vention, and the democratic convention should place a man in the field, I would suggest that a fair canvass be made and see who is the stronger man of the two, and then let us unite on him and de feat McKechnie, for I know as well as you that while there are three the field we cannot defeat him, and he knows it, too, and has announced himself as an in dependent candidate, hoping (as I be lieve) that there would be three candi dates in the field. Now, gentlemen, this is the way I have been working-(as some say) to help elect McKechnie. I ask your support, if you think I am worthy, but will pledge to help defeat McKechnie. I remain yours, JOHS F. VENNUM. PINCREE. Some of our people donned their over coats and shaws and started for +he Ar rowwood picnic this morning.

Some months ago he im bibed too much of his own liquor, and, quarrelling with Mrs. Sovas, he got her into a corner of the room, and clutching her throat with his left hand, gouged one of her eyes out with the other, .destroyiiif her sight.

The woman grouped blindly for the door crazed with agony and he made his escape.

He then sent for the "Spider" [Ike Weir]. Together they are taking long walks and otherwise getting in trim for the fall campaign. "I am done with liquor for good," said Sullivan. "I fancy I can stand it as well as anybody, but I own it has been too much for me. All the money I could rake and scrape together, some $15,000, was sunk in that circus. I am now strapped and must do some good fight ing or walk qn my uppers. I shall train from now until about Sept. 1, and when Mitchell and Kilrain come over I'll chal lenge them. Ned Stokes will back me for $10,000.
