CHEERS FOE CLEVELAND.
DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION PAYS TRIUITE TO FORMER PRESIDENT. The Anti-Uryan Faction of the Party Is In Full Control. St. Louis , July 6.— The democratic national convention to name the par ty's choice for president aud vice pres ident of the United States was called to order in the Coliseum shortly after the noon hour today by Chairman Jones of the national committee, and organized. The open session was taken up with the address of the tem porary chairman, and the announce ment of committees. Tomorrow will come the address of the permanent chairman aud the reports of commit tees, including platform. The climax of the nominations will not be reached until the third day, and perhaps later. By the time the hall was one-third full the heat began to increase to a noticeable degree. The auditorium from the speaker's stand was one flut ter as the palm leaf fans bobbed back and forth. The delegates lost but lit tle time in doffing their coats. With the exception of the temperature, which was a serious drawback, the effect was not unlike a slow snowfall gradually whitening the surface of the ground. Shortly after the noon hour Chair man Jones directed the sergeant at arms to procure order. He continued tapping the table with his gavel, but it was some time before quiet reigned. California's appearance with a huge silk banner and a silk American Hag, and a yell, "California!'California! Hearst! Hearst! Hearst!" caused cheering. Just as the California dele gation reached its reservation after marching up and down the center aisle, W. J. Bryan, who had come in unnoticed, arose in his place and was given a cheer. Then an enterprising member of the Montana delegation created a diversion by vigorously ringing a cowbell. The convention today listened to an extended speech from Representative John Sharp Williams, its temporary chairman, appointed the.committees necessary to perfect a permanent or ganization and adjourned. In a ses sion lasting two hours and fifty min utes, one striking incident over shadowed all other proceedings. That was the enthusiastic and prolonged cheering which greeted the name of Grover Cleveland. While the out burst which greeted the name of the former democratic president before its last syllable had fallen from the lips of the temporary chairman was noteworthy in Itself, it was magnified by contrast with the greeting accorded the actual persons of men who stood for all that had been opposed by Mr. Cleveland and others in the party dur ing the last eight years. Listening attentively to the demo cratic doctrine laid down by Mr. Wil liams, the conservatives found occa sion for the first demonstration when reference was made to the record of former President Cleveland. All the shackled party interest which had lain dormant through two national con ventions was released as by the touch of a trigger. The name of Cleveland was echoed from a thousand throats. Hats, handkerchiefs, fans and arms were waved, delegates and spectators stood on their chairs and the last semblance of order was turned into confusion which the convention offi cials were powerless to subdue. While the outburst was at its height. Mr. Bryan's following attempted to convert the demonstration into ap plause for their leader. The name of Bryan was yelled lustily, but in vain. Shouting of "Grover" aud "Cleve land" was renewed and the Bryan fol lowing was hissed. The greatest sig nificance was attached to the showing maue by the conservatives. Their ab solute control of the convention is no longer doubted even by those who have heretofore declined to be con vinced. A^ Mr. Williams proceeded in his speech his voice increased in volume and tlie delegates listened attentively. The convention appeared decidedly amused at Mr. Williams' humorously sarcastic reference to the "mutual ad miration society" of Mr. Roosevelt, aud when he read au eulogy by the president ou Mr. Root the delegates laughed aud applauded. Mr. Wil liams spoke in an ironical tone that caught the fancy of the convention and he was interrupted time acd time again by laughter. When Mr. Williams concluded his address he was completely exhausted. The prespiration was streaming from his face, Iiis collar was a soft white roll of linen, his voice was worn to a frazzle and could not be heard twenty feet from where lie stood. As he fin ished, after speaking for one hour and forty minutes, the band struck up a medley of patriotic airs, the stirring strains of Dixie calling forth wild cheers that never fail to follow the song, no matter when or where ren dered. Rainy Season Delays Fighting. St. Petersburg , July 5.—A war correspondent who has arrived from Mukden expresses the opinion that with the rainy season at hand, the Japanese have lost their opportunity of dealing General Kuropatkin a crushing blow. He says the world in general did not know the weakness of General Kuropatkin\s army at the early part of the war, but that when he left. June IS, Ku ropatkin had 125,000 men, and rein forcements were pouring in at the rate of 2,000 a day. Earlier, the correspondent thinks, the Japanese could have done any thing they wished, if (they had pressed the campaign with vigor. Celebrate Republican Anniversary. Jackson , Mich., July 6.—Five thousand people assembled in Loomis park here today to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the birth of the repub lican party "Under the Oaks," this city, July 6, 1854. It was hereon that date that the first state convention acting under the name "republican" was held. The state ticket nominated on that day went through a campaign to election-day success. Secretary of State John Hay, who was private secretary to Abraham Lincoln, the first republican president, was the orator of the day. Other prominent guests were speaker Cannon of the house of representatives, Sena tor Fairbanks, republican candidate for vice president, and Senator Bur rows. An interesting feature of the exer cises was a body of "Fremont voters" and men who cast their votes for the "Pathfinder." Grand Army uniforms were woru and silver locks were kept among them and the representation of these "charter men" was notable. When the morning exercises at the grove were concluded, the distin guished guests were driven to the ho tel where they were tendered a recep tion. The Socialist-Labor Ticket. New York , July 6.— Chas. H. Cor regan of New York, aud Wm. M. Cox of Illinois, were chosen as candidates for president and vice president res pectively by the national convention of the socialist-labor party in session here today. There was very little dis cussion over the selection of candi dates. A Dig Mining Deal. Denver , July 6.—One of the big gest mining deals made in this state for some time was consummated, ac cording to a report received here to day, by the transfer of the stock of the Gold King Miniüg company of Silverton to the Ventura Mining com pany. The price paid is said to be $5,000,000. Sho-it Stories of the War. London , July T.—The Liao Yang correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, in a dispatch, dated July 7, says: A battle is proceeding 25 miles from here. Numbers of wounded are being brought in from the mountains. It is believed the Japanese are continuing their advance, with the object of cut ting off Mukden. St. Petersburg , July 6.—A few nights ago Admiral Togo attempted to repeat the Japanese exploit with torpedo boats at Wei Hai Wei during the Chinese-Japanese war by sending torpedo boat destroyers into the har bor of Port Arthur for the purpose of sinking ships at their anchorage, but the attempt ended in disastrous fail ure. Four torpedo boat destroyers suc ceeded in creeping into the harbor, which was not protected by booms, but only one escaped. Two was sunk by the shore batteries aud one was crippled. The reckless bravery of the Japanese in going to almost certain destruction excites nothing but ad miration here. Another Fire at Exposition. St. Louis , July 5.— Fire at 2:20 o'clock this morning in the kitchen of the American cafe, in the Jerusalem concession at the World's Fair grounds, threatened Festival hall, west of the pavilion and the whole Je rusalem exhibit. After considerable excitement among the Turks, Arabs and other Oriental people who were asleep when the fire broke out, it was gotten under' control. The American cafe, which is in two wings and elab orately furnished, was gutted in both wings. The loss is estimated at $15, 000. lîeavcrs .Must Stand Trial. New York , July *.—George W. Beavers, former superintendent of thu bureau of salaries and allowances in the postoffice department will be taken to Washington for trial under the in dictments found there by the federal grand jury for alleged acceptance of compensation for securing a govern ment contract for typewriters. This was decided at Brooklyn today by United States Judge Thomas, who held that the orders given for the re moval of Beavers were illegal. A new bond of 810,000 was required, pending the furnishing of which Beav ers was remanded to the custody of the United States marshal.

Wada, Stall Stfi'soun of the Jnpn EOKC- Navy. UeportN Tluit IIo Ex tructoil One Hundred mid Twenty three Fragments of Shell From n Russian Sailor's Body. The terrible force of Shiinose pow der, the new explosive used by the Japanese army and navy, is shown by the report of Dr. Wada, a staff surgeon of the Japanese navy who assisted in caring for the wounded Russian sailors from the cruiser Variag, says a London cable dispatch to the Chicago Tribune. Twenty-four wounded sailors were cared for on the French cruiser Pascal for four days. From one of the wound ed men J23 pieces of Japanese shell were extracted. The largest piece showed that the outer walls of the shell were not more than three-eighths of an inch thick and had been tired from nothing smaller than six inch guns. Nothing but a high explosive could smash a strong steel shell into such minute fragments. Dr. Wada described how decks were made slippery with blood. Ile saw small bits of flesh and bone scattered everywhere. He stumbled over an arm here, a leg there. The llesh was often torli from the bodies. Nothing but a high explosive shell could have produced such effects. The wounds caused by the powder are no worse than those caused by old fashioned shells and shrapnel. If a man hit is lucky enough not to be killed he stands a good chance of get ting off unhurt: or only slightly wound ed. Two sailors stood on the bridge with Captain Itudnieff and Count Nirod and a petty officer. One of the new Japanese shells struck the petty officer. It was one of those shells provided with a fuse, taking effect not only on contact with the water, but whenever it touches part of the rigging, living men, or even their clothing. Wherever the resistance is sufficient to alter the speed ever so little the shell is exploded. The petty officer was blown into atoms. Absolutely nothing was found of him afterward. Count Nirod, standing next to him, was blown to pieces, only one arm being found afterwai# The two sailors who stood a little way off from the ex plosion were badly mangled. Captain Rudnieff, who stood a little farther off, was only slightly wounded in the head by small fragments. In the old style shells the fragments of the outer walls and the inner rings were meant to kill and wound. The explosive was there merely to burst the shell and give additional impetus to the fragments. In the new shells the explosive itself is meant to kill, the function of the shell being simply to convey the explosive to the desired spot. Referring to the numerous cases of suppuration of wounds caused by pieces of clothing entering with frag ments of shell, Dr. Wada suggests that every government make it the rule of the navy that when a figat is expected every man shall have his body well washed and his clothes disinfected. "Happily it is the rule of the men of our army and navy always to go into battle in their newest and cleanest uniforms. This is not because of saiv ta ry considerations, but it works the right way all the same." TRACKLESS RAILWAY. Novel Litnc Heilig Constructed by Mannheim Community In Prussia. United States Consul Lunger, at So lingen, Germany, reports to the depart ment of commerce and labor at Wash ington that a trackless railway is be ing erected by the community of Mann heim, which will be the first of its kind in Prussia. It will run from Mannheim to Langenfeld, about two and a half miies, with two short branches intended for freighting pur poses. For entering farm yards lying close to the road a connector and flexible ca ble fifty to seventy feet in length will be used to transmit the current to the motor car. When these trains pass each other one will remain standing under the wires and disconnect ils current until the other has passed. Farmers' wagons can be attached to the end of the train provided the ordi nary tongues are replaced by shorter coupling tongues. Five or six double trips at the rate of eight to ten miles per hour will be made daily on sched ule time. Consul General Cole, at Dresden, Germany, reports that experiments al so have been made near Dresden with railless electric roads, but it seems that the lines did not prove a marked success from a financial point of view, partly because located at points where the travel was sparse and partly be cause of the expense in operating.
