He is For Bryan and Silver and Believes Both Will Be Endorsed. Gorman Arrives at Saratoga and Exhibits His Boom—Altgeld On Goebelism. St. Louis, Aug. 12.—"I am for Bryan for president. I have always been for him, and expect to remain so, I think there is not a shadow of doubt about his nomination by the next democratic na tional convention." This statement was made by the vice chairman of the democratic national committee, William J. Stone, today, when asked about the reports from "Washington that he was preparing to forsake Bryan and take up Admiral Schley as a candidate for the demo cratic presidential nomination. Mr Stone further said: "I have never heard Schley's name mentioned as is possible candidate for president, except in the newspaper gossip. I never thought that this was serious, and dc not think the last, report is any more serious than the others. I never thought of Schley as anything but a brave naval officer. This talk about m: being for him is rot. I am for Bryan." Speaking of the democratic confer ences reported to be held at Saratoga, Mr. Stone said: "I don't .believe the conferences amount to anything. This talk about them is all nonsense." Louisville, Ky„ Aug. 12.—Ex-Govern or Altgeld in a signed letter to a Louis I vilie newspaper says: "If we are correctly informed in re gard to the conditions in Kentucky. I then the real question presented there is whether fraud, trickery, thugism ant crime shall be permitted to triumph. and, inasmuch as these elements can always- be controlled by corruptionists. the question broadens out and becomes one of national importance. For. if these elements are to triumph in Ken tucky, it means that they will have a comparatively easy road to travel in othersections of the Union, and It means that political conventions, instead v. being run by the people and carrying out the policy and will of the people, will be run by the men who betray the people and will be controlled by those interests that plunder the country. "Viewed from that standpoint, it i: apparent that the very existence of democratic institutions is involved, and ^at, consequently, it is the duty of ev- ery man who loves his country to do what he can to crush out these con ditions. But, whether it would be ad visable for me to go to Kentucky ana make speeches or not will depend on circumstances. It will depend largely S$ upon what the people of Kentucky do themselves. If they show a disposition 11 to rescue their state from the control of rotten politics, and they conclude that I can help them, I will gladly do what I can, and I think a similar spirit will be found all over the country. On the other hand, if the people of Ken tucky should, in the end, show them selves to be indifferent, then it is clem that no outsider could do any good there. Very respectfully yours, JOHN P. ALTGELD. "P. S.—Looking at the situation from this distance, it seems to me as if new democratic ticket for state offices would be the salvation of Senator Blackburn, for it would result in bring out a full democratic vole, whereas if there is no new ticket put up, and the disgusted democrats should remain away from the polls, as they are liable to, then he would be in great danger. ALTGELD," GOHM AN AM) HIS liOOM. lie Brines It to Saratoga and llus a Conference With VunWyck. Saratoga, N. Y., Aug. 12.—Arthur Pue Gorman arrived here with his presiden tial boom yesterday afternoon and im mediately there was great activity among the anti-Bryan democratic lead ers. gathered in Saratoga from all parts of the country. Activity was succeeded by speculation when the Maryland man went into secret and prolonged confer ence with Judge Augustus Van Wyck, Tammany's carefully groomed aspirant for party leadership in 1900. Throughout his political career of half a century Mr. Gorman has been known as a man who never does anything without ulterior motive, seldom re vealed at the time. Hence the gossip caused by his conference with Judge Van wyck. Rumor has it that he unpacked his grip, revealed his puny boom to the New Torker, then spoke sadly of medi cal warnings to him not to assume par ty leadership, even though it lay within his grasp, and wound up by telling the judge he was friendly to him, but—and a but with a capital B—to secure his support he (Gorman) must have man agement of the campaign. Another rumor says Mr. Gorman told Judge Van Wyck that he (Gorman) was being urged by influential friends to make a fight for the presidential nomi nation in 1U00. To secure it, though, he recognized that he must have a united east and a united south behind him. It is added that he then suggested an armed truce with the New Yorker, both working against Mr. Bryan until the time when they could safely test their relative strength, the loser in that test to support the winner with all the means at his command. Rumor does not say what Judge Van Wyck replied to either of these specu lative properties. In all probability, though, he dodged the issue, knowingly, state men, who are aware of his posi tion. Boss Croker is now on the high seas en route home, and it Is not likely, it is asserted, that "his candidate," as Judge Van Wyck is popularly known, will speak until he hears from his chief. When Mr. Gorman arrived he was met by Col. Lanahan of Baltimore, his advance representative at the anti Bryan conference. After dining to gether at the United States hotel the two walked down to the Grand Union. Cordial greetings were exchanged with Judge Walker, of Missouri, Gen. Jack son, of Tennessee, Mr. Dubignon, of Georgia, and other democratic leaders there. Then ensued the conference with Judge Van Wyck in the latter's apart ments. The situation has been steadily grow- ing more interesting and important. Judging from letters and dispatches pouring In from all parts of the country the movement, to cut loose from 16 to 1 has galiMd tremendous momentum. The bringing to remembrance of Mr. Bryan's refusal to vote for Congress man Crisp for Speaker because he had been in the confederate army seems to have especially stirred up the southern democrats. A dlpjRatch received from a prominent Ai&bAua leader says it has created a great afensatlon there. Judge Van Wyc)E stated yesterday lu an interview that ^he believes William Qoebel will be elected governor of Ken tucky, and furthermore that he ought to be elected. He added that the flght of the Kentucky democrats is the same in principle as that victoriously waged by the Louisiana democrats against the lottery ring, the Kentucky democratic struggle being, he asserted, against the dominance of the Louisville and Nash ville railroad. Hugh J. Brady of St. Louis has start ed a boom for Governor Lon V. Ste phens of that Btate for vice president. Hfe asserts that Governor Stephens is a much bigger man in Missouri politics than William J. Stone, and that the for mer will control the delegates to the na tional convention. Samuel B. Cook, another Missourian, chairman of the ways and means com mittee of the democratic national com mittee, has been writing letters, it is stated, to intimidate leading democrats from attending the Saratoga confer ence. Mr. Brady received one from him demanding to know what business he had to Join an effort to prevent Mr. Bryan's renomination. Former Nation al Chairman Harrity says this is unpre cedented and thm a resort to such methods shows the Bryan supporters to be in a pnnic on account of the develop ments here. MUST PAY THE BUTCHER. The Meut Combine J'uts Buhlueas on Cash ltusls lu Gotham. New York, Aug. 12.—Retail meat dealers of New York who purchase their stock from packers have beer, served with notice that hereafter thev win have to make weekly settlement! of their accounts. livery Monday morning retailers must settle up for al' provisions bought the previous week. The wholesalers who sent out notices are ATmour & Co., Switi & Co., Schwarzchi.a & Sulsburger, Nelson Morris and the H. G. Hammond Com pany. These firms practically control the meat market of New York. The ar rangement between the wholesalers it that any firm that does not settle up with the wholesaler with whom it haf been dealing cannot pnrchase meat from any other in the combine. This action puts the retail business prac tically on a cash basis. A number o! prominent retailers of the city met last night to discuss the situation. The) believe this is an attempt on the part of the big packers to drive retailers ou: of business so that the trust can oper ate depots of its own. The retailers say they will establish slaughter houses ol their own. A representative of Swift & Company, when seen in regard to thi new rule, said: "We are tired of let ting men do business at our expense. We have to carry some of our custom ers. month after month. Finally the} close up business and we lose. We have accounts amounting to $250,000 weekly. This mal-es a big load to carry wher. you consider that we have to pay cash for what we buy. I expect the new order will drive out of business man: little fellows, but the wealthy retail er- like the order." WHAT SAM JONES THINKS.

He said the lecture was called "Xfacta and Fun," with more ur less philosophy thrown in. He declared he would stick to his sub ject as well as his audience. "The most successful speaker," he said, "is he who sticks to his audience, whatever be comes of the subject. 1 am getting along in years—am 51 years old, and the older I grow the more I think of facts.

Peonliar Phenomenon Takes Place In the River—Sudden Rlse^ and Fall. Kew Mines Discovered In the Black Hills—Copper Found In ,' Abundance. Chicago, Aug. 12.—Sweeping from the northwest at a velocity of fifty miles an hour, the most disastrous wind Chica go has experienced In years struck the city at 6 p. m. yesterday. Two days of heavy, cyclone-breeding weather had been the forerunner of the storm. When the wind, furious and hot as a simoon, encountered the cool breezes from the lake counter currents were engendered and in fifteeen minutes the city was wrapped in a tangle of swirling, twist ing winds', blistering hot and cold by turns. Terrific blasts came from all points of the compass in the space of a few minutes and no part of the city escaped their fury. Atmospheric conditions had been cy cionic during the entire day. At 6 p. m. a veil of murky, humid clouds settled down over the city, bringing the dark ness of late dusk. The gathering gloom was followed by thunder crashes, alter nating with dazzling Hashes of light ning. A little before 6 p. m., just as the streets were densely packed with the homeward-bound crowds, there ap peared in the north a red light. It rapidly crept up from the horizon till the northern heavens were brilliant- illuminated. The thousands, already terrified at the fury of the storm, saw he fire-red glow of the northern light." md became panic-stricken. Many fled nto stores and hallways from what hey supposed was Impending disaster. Others, thinking of those at home, ushed to their cars to find them so acked that they had to turn back, or, ,orse, blockaded by accidents caused by the wind. Meanwhile the storm had un to waste its strength in the rain hat fell for an hour. The tangled winds rove the sheets of water in every di ction, drenching thousands. During the day a phenomenon was oc urring of which the general public knew nothing. Early in the afternoon heavy stream began to How Inward from the lake. The level of the river rose rapidly and continued to rise till he storm reached its highest point. Then suddenly the stream was turned, and in twenty minutes the level of the river had fallen fourteen inches. Ves sels tied along the bank strained at heir hawsers till they nearly snapped. The waves on the lake rolled so high hat shipping was threatened. The fatality and property damage re ultlng can only be estimated. Two girls who were boating on the lake In •arfteld park are supposed to have Irowned. Several persons who wefe in boats off Jackson park have not been accounted for and it is feared that they met their deaths. Many were more or less seriously injured by being struck with flying debris und the hospital am bulances were kept busy for an hour or wo. Many frame houses, especially in the outlying districts, were partially de stroyed. Windows and skylights and buildings all over the city were blown out by the sheer force of the wind and hattered by flying wreckage. St. Josaphat's Polish Roman Catholic church, in course of construction, was damaged to the extent of J10.000. The building is located at the corner of Southport and Belden avenues. The ron framework was lifted by the wind rorn its moorings in solid masonry and thrown over against the building nex to it, which is at present used by the congregation as a church. Iron girders were twisted and bent like wire. The damage to the adjoining building is es timated at 12,000. Transportation lines were All mere or less damaged by the storm, the trolley roads being the worst sufferers. Many blockades caused by the piling up of debris on the tracks resulted*- Al the foot of Wells street the schooner Amer ica, swept lakeward by the rushing of the water in the river when the tidal wave receded, ran under the Clark street bridge, sweeping away her masts. Lightning struck in many places and several were shocked by the electrical discharges. Accidents caused by flying glass were numerous. In several downtown resorts —restaurants and other resorts—tin wind hurled masses of dirt into the open doors, creating panic among the patrons. At the stockyards 1,200 un broken bronchos stampeded in a Corral and nearly broke down the inclosure. NEW FINDS IN BLACK HILLS. Mine Owner* and l'rospcctors ITeel iUK llappy. Deadwood, Aug. 12.—In the Black Hills there never was a better feeling among the mine-owners and prospect ors than at the present time. In Dead wood mining circles big deals are being made In copper and "phonollte" ground. One of the most promising copper prospects is situated on City creek, in the city limits of Deadwood, which is being worked by the Detroit and Dead wood Company Some of the stockhold ers of the company, including Malcum McCallum, of Chicago, president Rob ert Murray, of Detroit, secretary J. H. Johnston of New York city, a wealthy dealer in precious stones, and W. H. Day, of Peoria, 111., have arrived In Deadwood and are making an inspec tion of the development work done thus far on the company's ground. A tunnel has been driven into the base of the mountain about 300 feet, which has en countered a ledge of iron pyrites, which has given repeated assays of gold from $4 to $44 a ton. The average value Is placed at about $15 a ton gold. It 1B line concentrating proposition. Mr. James Lawson of Detroit, general manager of the company here In Dead wood, believes that the ledge will be over 100 feet wide before it Is penetrated and that the richest values In gold have not yet been Btruck. This ledge of gold ore was entirely unexpected and is what is called a "blind" ledge. About 700 feet higher up on the mountain, a wide ledge of copper-bearing ore was cross out last winter, which gave an average assay of 8 per cent of that metal. It is believed thpt this copper vein Joins on tbe fold ledge and that tbft turuwl wflV eventually cross*eut on* or the laifHt ore-bearing vertical* ever opened lnte the Black Hllls. The mine is situated In an ideal locality. It can be reached by ahort spurs from the two main trunk railways and electric lights from the city have been extended one'block to the tunnel. There is no "wilderness" to jmbdue, but Instead the mine is In the best part of the city of Dtadwood. A shaft will be sunk from the apex of the mountain to intersect the tunnel. The company is very strong financial ly, having stopped the sale of treasury stock some time ago. It is also devel oping a gold proposition in Two Bit camp and the prospects are considered good for finding gold ore in the flat for mation. The mine is located about seven miles east of Deadwood. There area number of producing mines in the neighboring camps. This copper belt, on which the com pany is looking for oopper ore in Dead wood, extends for several miles in a southerly direction, and frequent open ings made, along the course show very rich copper, at some places assays hav ing been obtained th^t will average 30 and 40 per cent. There are large quan tities of this grade of ore, too. In the past few months a good many copper deals have been made and development work along thiB line is very active. There Is one copper mine east of Hill City, the Blue Lead, that has an'im mense body or bodies of copper-bearing ore which assays as high as 70 per cent of that metal. Great blocks of the rich ore can be quarried out. The eastern experts who examined the mine a few days since report that they have never seen anything like It. before, that it is really a mountain of copper ore. In the Koch ford mining district the British American Company, of .Detroit, Mich., has commenced developing the copper and gold ledges which appear very prominently running in district ledges north and south and recent as says of gold from $4 to 14.60 and cop per averaging 7 per cent have been found. This big deal was only recently put through. There are over 700 acres of ground in the tract, which is all more* or less mineralized. There, are three dis tinct veins or verticals of copper and gold ore, which rjin the entire length of the ground, over a mile and a half, at each end of which deep shafts have been sunk and copper and gold ore has been shipped out by other companies. The Black Hills are being visited by a great many people. Colorado capi talists are coming In every day and it would take but little to precipitate a general boom. The southern hills are also very active, copper and free milling propositions being the chief attraction. BOLD TALK BY KAISER. Emperor of Gerninuy Makes a Speech at Opening of a Canal. Berlin, Aug. 12.—Emperor William yesterday attended the opening of the Dortmund-Eins canal. Replying to an address of the burgo master, Tils majesty said he regarded the canal as a work to form part of a greater whole, which he himself and the government had inflexiby determined to further, and he hoped the nation's rep resentatives would place him in the po sition to do so before the end of the year. Tlie emperor, in opening hia speech, explained that the only reason that had prevented him from coming to Dort mund sooner was his anxiety In regard to the accident which recently happened to the empress. It was the unalterable resolve of both the government and himself, the kaiser continued, to carry out the proposed great central canal, as the construction of great waterways was absolutely nec essary and would be a blessing to both industry and agriculture. "The growing needs of the country," he said, "demand more extended and easier modes of communication. The exchange of goods in bulk in the In terior can only be effected by water ways. I hope that the representatives of the people, admitting this view, will place me in a position to confer upon the country the benefits of such a canal during the current year. "The might of a strong and united empire, obeying one will, shall be exer cised for this great work with all its power." (Loud cheers.) tii Speaking subsequently in the town hall Emperor William expressed the hope that the day might prove a land mark "exemplifying" progress and the recognition on the part of all German subjects of the fact that there are times when it is necessary to subordinate per sonal aspirations to the welfare of the state. "On my instructions," continued the emperor, "this great project haB been undertaken to regulate the current and depth of the Oder, in order to unite the northern provinces and part of the Si lesia with the sea. Other great works for water communication in the eastern provinces are in contemplation. The progress of a state can only be rendered possible by amalgamating and placing on an equal footing the interests of in dustry and agriculture." His majesty's speeches may be said to have cleared the air, for they have fur nished at once a pendant to ana »olu tion of the memorable Cieiereid speech wherein the emperor's allusion to his "inllexible will" provoked A* '-•p.':-- -'.v ago, BO OFFICEftfl 202 much speculation and comment.
