The Democratic county conventions
r in this city yesterday was a lengthy
one it being a late hour this morning
k ore the work was completed
Preliminary work such as appoint
ment of committees was gone through
fl with very quickly and the selection of
delegates to the state and judicial con
ventions was quickly accomplished
J Candidates for the state senate were
chosen on the first ballot but with the
nominees for the lower house matters
were different several ballots being re
quired to make a choice
The contests on each nomination
were spirited and the ticket as a whole
S is one that will receive the support of
I all Democrats and a great many Re
Major Dave Levy who had charge
of the decorations did his work well
and tastefully The balconies were fes
tooned with bunting while clusters of
Email American flags were hung all
around the interior of the opera house
lifelike portrait of Old Hickory
loomed up in front of the speakers desk
while a fine steel engraving of De
4 I mocracys young standard bearer hung
directly overhead in a small canopy
of star studded blue
Long before the hour for calling the
convention to order had arrived the
Jjfrisky candidate and his friends put in
> 7ui appearance It seemed as if the
f sheriffs office was the most desirable
t for aspirants for the place were more
A J J Burt Hugh Watson William
McQueen Thomas P Lewis and
their friends were around early I
and the manner in which the
mild and lamblike delegate was but
tonholed was refreshing indeed Frank
Jennings and his coterie were around
with the balance and did some hard
Candidates for the count attorney
it ship in the person of J M Denny
John B Anderson John M Burton
James Pardee and J A Williams were
on deck soon after the doors opened
while Joe Walden and Steve Lynch
the candidates for treasurer recently
announced strove to outgeneral
WhiteheaJcU wlho had several good men
advocating his claims
Dr Faust Barney Quinn and George
Stringfellows friends were doing all
they could for their respective candi
dates and the partisans of Mrs Dr
Ferguson who wanned to be county
clerk crossed swords early and often
l tttth the warriors of Clan D nbaT
in addition to the well known Demo I
cratic faces which appeared in the
convention there were several new
ones worn by men who have hitherto
allied themselves with the party of
promises Oscar Groschell occupied a
front seat Clesson S Kinney sat along
side him S P Armstrong was a con
spicuous figure The selection of the
latter on the committee on resolutions
provoked hearty applause
Will Dykes was an interested Dem
ocratic spectator
It was 1030 when Acting County
Chairman Lloyd called the convention
to orier Quiet was quickly restored
after which Mr Lloyd felicitated the
convention on the fact that It had as
sembled when there was never a better
I prospect for Democratic success It

without regard to geographical situa
tion or personal preference or differ

Acting Secretary John E Hansen
then read the call for the convention
This done Mr Lloyd introduced
Fisher S Harris the committees se
lection for temporary chairman
2 < tr Harris received a warm recep
tion at the hands of the convention
and in return for this mark of appre
ciation said he would inaugurate an
innovation and make a short speech
Looking over the faces of the men and
women before him the chair said he
saw nothing to indicate that the re
sults of the deliberations would be
anything but good The confidence of
the people reposed in the delegates
would not be betrayed and a sure
victory was presaged over a divided
Republicanism Candidates should be
nominated regardless of personal feel
Ings Ray Van Cort was then presented as
temporary secretary and Miss Anna
Lynch as assistant Angus M Can
non was appointed sergeantatarms
A T Schroeder suggested as a time
saving measure that in lieu of the ap
pointment of a committee on creden
tials the list of delegates as elected
at the primaries and published in The
Herald be accepted by the convention
But the idea did not suit the conven
tion and on motion of E G Woolley
the committee was appointed in the
usual manner one from each ward
and two from the county at large The
other committees were made up m the
same way
The several committees as made up
are as follows

Arter the appointment of the com
mittees the convention took a recess
until 1 oclock
The frisky candidate had tickets at
the afternoon session and he distrib
uted them plenty The delegates were
loaded down with tickets here and
tickets there tickets up stairs and
down stairs tickets outside and in
side tickets right and tickets left
tickets forward and back four hands
across and ladies chain allemand left

things come to an end and finally the
peddling was ended by the chair call
ing the convention to order and ask

permanent organization to report rut

Mr Chairman yelled a delegate
in rear of the hall
The convention is not yet in or

I the tramp of visiting delegations was
heard in Canton and all day long
Major McKinley was able to say
How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him that bringeth good I
tidings for ten thousand voters called J
to greet him and cheer him and to
promise him their support
The greatest delegation of the day
and of the campaign was that of the
Chicago railway men There were
nearly 5000 in the delegation They
came on ten special trains and travel
ed all night in common day coaches
in order to see Major McKinley There
were all working menrailway em
ployees and there were no officials
among them They marched the streets
in splendid order with their own bands
It was a stirring labor demonstra
tion and the spectators on the streets
were liberal in the demonstrations of
Major McKinley was impressed with
the great outpouring of Chicago rail
way employees and he made them a
long speech notwithstanding the fact
that he had to stand in the rain to do
it With the railway men was a fine
delegation of commercial telegraphers
nearly 200 in number M J Bourke
was their spokesman
Mr J W Dodge spoke for the rail
way men In response to these warm
ly applauded addresses Major McKin
ley said
My Fellow Citizens It would be a
hard heart indeed which would not be
moved by this splendid demonstration
I bid you each and every one of vou
a sincere welcome to my home
Cheers I count it among the great
est honors of my life to have 5000 rep
resentative men of the great railroad
lines of the country centered in Chicago
come to this city to give me their assur
ances that in the year 1896 they stand
by protection reciprocity and sound
money Great applause These dele
gations coming great distances present
a remarkable phase in our political
life and evidences the deep solicitude
they have for the welfare of our coun
try Such a demonstration as this
would not be possible if the people of
the country
of the dangerous menace which is pre
sented in the national contest of this
year Applause and cries of We are I
all interested You are here today I
men of all parties and creeds because I
you want to defeat the effort which is
now being assiduously made to destroy
the credit and currency of the coun I
try and also because loving law and
order you want to stamp out the spir I
it of lawlessness and repudiation I
which now threatens it Applause and i
cries of Thats what we will do i
Your active interest in this contest
for good politics good government I
good morals and good money will be
helpful in every part of the country
and inspiring to the friends of good i j i
government everywhere The railway I
is the mightiest factor of modern civi I
lization To trace the railroads his j I
tory during the past twenty years I
would be to write
itself so intimately are they associ
ated To say they have cost 1000000000
employ 1000000 men with 30000 loco I
mo ivr < s 27000 passenger cars and over
1100000 other cars that their capital
stock is 4640000000 with funded debts
of 468000000 yearly traffic earnings of
1000000000 net earnings S31SOOOOOO
and dividends 64000000 annually con
veys but a faint idea of how fully they
enter into every line of business and
affect directly or indirectly the great
masses of our people Not only are
lives constantly in their keeping but
every year they become more essential
to our subsistence convenience and
comfort Applause The greatest
tribute which can be paid to the rail
way men of the country is that high
degree of care and attention and skill
which they give to the service per i j i i
forming the most delicate and responsi I i
ble duties engaged in a business in
which both life and property are in
volved where heedlessness or careless
ness will sacrifice either or both and
yet the pereentage of loss is merely
nominal in both cases Not only are j
in their exacting duties but the great 1
est watchfulness andfidelity and often
the keenest intelligence to think and
act instantly under circumstances the
most perilous and trying Applause and
cries of Thats right Major I have
said that railroad men are cool and
collected brave and vigilant in the dis
charge of their duties great applause
and < < cries of Hurrah for McKinley
and surely greater praise could not b
given them than this Faithful unto
death ha been truly written of many I
a brave engineer conductor or brake I
man who perished rather than aban
don his train when it was possible at
the expense of others Great applause
and cries of Thats right So worthy
are these devoted servants of the pub
lic s watchful that railroad accidents
are said by competent judges to be not
nearly as frequent or as fatal as other
modes of transportation Your spokes
man has justly observed that no body
of Americans have greater interests at
stake in the pending political cam
paign than the railroad men who are
everywhere taking
in the proper settlement of the great I I
principles involved in it Applause
The triumph of free silver would mean
to you 0 it adoption by Mexico has
meant t the railroad employees of I
that country a decrease in the pur
chasing power of the jnoney in which
they are paid of fully onehalf with
comparatively no increase in wages
Cries of We dont want it and we will
net have it
Not only that but it would mean
I decreased employment and distress
The 50cent dollar employes of the rail
ways will no more add to your salaries
than the railroads would add t their
income by decreasing the size o their
cars Great cheering and cries of
Good enough
The railway men are deeply inter
ested in the prosperity of the country
Cries of You bet we are They know
from experience that when the country
is prosperous railroads are prosperous
cries of Yes we do and when railroads
roads are prosperous they have steady
work and remunerative employment
Applause and cries of Thats right
They know when the business of
the country is poor the business of
railroads is poor and the employees
suffer both in time and pay Cries
of Thats right major They are in
terested too in good money cheers
and they are in favor of law and or
der Great applause and cries of
Yes yes hurrah for McKinley
They want t perpetuate our free in
stitutions for their children for ever
and ever after Tremendous cheering
They are zealous like all good citizens
for the honor of the country cries of
We are and they want to main
tain unsullied the proud name of
America Great cheering They do
not believe in either public or private
dishonesty Applause and pries of
No no They want the government
ment to pay its debts in the best cur
rency known to the commercial world
Applause and cries of Thats right
And they want the railways to pay
them in the best currency in cine world
great cheering and cries of Hurrah
for McKinley currency that will not
be questioned and that will pass cur
rent everywhere fo its face value
without discount or depreciation Re
newed cheering and cries of Thats
what we want I cannot conceive of
in our politics this year than the men
who traverse this country from one
end of It to the other and feel that a
large percentage of that force is en
listed in the Republican cause and I
fighting for the success o the Repub
lican principles in an assurance of vic
tory which wH gladden any patriotic
heart Great applause You a al
ways solicitous for the trains In your
charge yu guard them with sleep
less activity from wrecks and wreck
ers and a citizens df this glorious
republic you are deeply concerned in
its progress and honor and will guard
with equal care from wreck the credit
and currency and courts of the United
States Great applause and cries of
We will The signals of danger t
public safety and honor are as
quickly a faithfully heeded by you
as are the danger signals the roads I
have established for the safety of life
and property committed to your care I
Great cheering The perils which lie
along the path of the nations progress
you would help to remove as you would
remove those along the track off the
m ty railroads you operate I wel
come the railroad employees of this
country as allies in this great contest
for the countrys honor and the coun
ts flag Tremendous cheering
The contest this year ony country
men if i results in aVvictory for the
Republican party will not be a mere
party victory but a victory deeper and
broader and more significant than that
for it will represent the votes of men of
all parties who unite with the Repub
lican parts in the patriotic purpose to
preserve the honqr of the country Ap
plause and cries of You are right
With the many delegations that
are visiting me today the one crowd
ing the other I am sure you will ex
cuse me from talking at greater length
as I would be glad to do to this splen
did audience of earnest and patriotic
men I thank you one and all for this
visit it has been an inspiration to me
and I believe that it will be of in
valuable service to the cause in which
we are all engaged Great applause
And now Mr Burke and gentlemen
of the Telegraphers association of
Chicago I am glad to greet you here
with the railroad employees who have
honored me with their presence Ap
plause Perhaps none of us appreciate
the degree of universal acceptance
that the telegraph has obtained I re
member as a boy of reading how Morse
the first to put the telegraph into prac
tical use in the United States sent his
first greeting across the wiresthe sig
nificant message What hath God
wrought little did the people know
then what a gift he had made to his
future countrymen and to the remotest
ages Applause When the Demo
cratic national convention in 1844 was
in session at Baltimore is said the
news of Mr Polks nomination was
instantly telegraphed to Washington
sixty miles distant but it found no
credence there Men did not believe
in the accuracy of the statement and
waited until it was verified by the
newspapers or the returning delegates
Laughter and applause Perhaps the
news was surprising where a different
result was so confidently expected but
it illustrates the credibility of the
times and the lack of confidence in
scientific accuracy Contrast I
with the story of the old man who it
1 is reported had learned to read the
tickings of the wires and waited pa
tiently at the telegraph office in Chi
cago for many hours for news from
Washington that Lee had surrendered
He sprang to his feet with the happy
exclamation which proved to be his last
words Now can I die happy Great
cheering Congress gave very scant
aid to the great invention and some
of the old statesmen of that time
laughed to scorn a proposition to make
a small appropriation for connecting
Washington and Baltimore by a tele
graph line saying it was chimerical
and could not be done laughter and
yet they lived to see such lines prac
tically girdle the globe American
genius and enterprise wiser than the
lawgivers was soon extending wires
everywhere until now I believe it is
estimated that the American lines ex
tend for 250000 miles with 800000 miles
of wire 26000 offices and 42000 em
ployees Everywhere the service is
efficient and reliable great cheering
and I congratulate the telegraphers of
Chicago and the republic and the peo
ple of the entire country upon the
with which the millions of messages
are daily handled and transmitted
Applause I is gratifying too to
find them as sensible in politics as in
business great applause as quick to
enhance the prosperity of the country
and a unitedly in support of the right I I
as they are uniformly attentive and I i
obliging to the public Great ap
I thank you my fellow citizens for I
your call and appreciate most highly
indeed your assurances of support
which your eloquent spokesmen have
presented to me I wish I could shake
hands with every man in this audi
ence Cries of We wish you could
too Major I do not know that I
can do it but I am glad to meet and
greet you and am glad to know that
you are enlisted in the great cause a
against public repudiation

Cyclone Strikes the City of
New Bedford Massa
A Bolt of Lightning From and
Inky Cloud
Salt Lakes Experience of Friday
Klgltt a Mere Drop in the Bucket
Compared to What Eastern Cities
Experienced arrow and Tri
hag Escapes Many Buildings
Blown DownSome Lives Lost
cyclone from the west struck ths city
early this morning dealing out destruc
tion on every hand and perhaps death
In one instance There was of course a
immense number of minor accidents trees
uprooted etc but soon after daylight
a strong burst of wind caused danger of
more serious Import
About 630 oclock a huge bolt of light
ning descended from a cloud of inky
blackness upon the bIg cotton shed of the
Bennett mills
I ignited the inflammable contents and
Imperiled nearly 8000 bales of cotton and
long staple I took the firemen three
hours to get the mad blaze subdued and
in all about 2600 bales valued at up
wards of 100000 were injured Much of
this damage will be offset by proceeds of
the sale of the damaged cotton but it
will still be a heavy loss I is generally
insured The cotton house was destroyed
and Involved a loss of perhaps 6000
In the midst of the mill fire
burst upon the city characterized by a
terrific wind and a torrent of rain The
crowd near the mill fire ra for shelter
and about twenty of them found i In a
new building at the corner of Coggeshall
and North Front streets No sooner were
they entered than the wind took up the
building razed the roof bodily and the
whole structure fell with a crash
All but one of the crowd in the building
escaped He was Zoel Levigney a French
man aged G who had run in the shelter
He was pinned down by heavy timbers
his spine hurt several ribs broken and
internally injured The narrow escape of
the carpenters forms a remarkable story
The building was the property of the con
tractor and Is a total loss of 53000 Sev
eral other houses were unroofed In
and filled the streets for a time In South
Darmouth several buildings were blown
On the Fairhaven bridge a street car
barely escaped a big tree from Praps
Island and travel was blocked some
time Reports from suburban territory
are to the effect that the storm was of
fearful severity
Believes There line Been a Gradual
Brightening of the Republican
Political SkieR
CHICAGO Sept 19Chairman Hanna
left for Cleveland tonight and after
spending Sunday at home he will go to
New York for ten days He has been in
Chicago longer this time than on any
other occasion since he organized the
western headquarters and he has been
constantly at work at his desk He ad
mits that hard work is needed in the
west to win and when he returns he will
devote all his time until the close of the
campaign to the center of the political
battle He said before leaving that he
was better satisfied with the western situation
uation than when he came here The
party organization from the Ohio to the
Missouri river was not only in splendid
fighting form but it had accomplished
more in the way of direct and tangible
results than even he or his associates had
anticipated During the last two weeks
there had been a gradual brightening of
the political horizon He was satisfied
that McKinley would not only carry the
great central states of the west by hand
some majorities but that he would pro
bably win other states whose electoral
vote is now confidently claimed by the
Henry C Payne will again take Chicago
headquarters in Mr Hannas absence
and will devote all his time to the trans
action of business here He left last
night for his home In Milwaukee to re

A Storm That Canned Much Loss of
Life and Property
NEW YORK Sept 19New York

lence at 5 oclock this afternoon The
wind blew with the intensity of a tor
nado and much damage was done in
the suburban districts The storm cen
ter was on the south coast of Long
Island and it is feared that great loss
of life took place there At Coney Is
land sixteen persons were out in hired
boats just before the tornado came on
None of them had returned at midnight
and it is feared that all were drowned
One boat drifted ashore containing two
suits of clothing which the men who
i had hired the boat wore when they
started out
i At Rockaway beach the broad channel
I hotel was destroyed and the Boulevard
I was filled with wreckage which came
from small buildings The beach was
in darkness too as the ejectric light
was smashed and it was impossible to
obtain an estimate of the damage At
Rockaway several boats containing at
I least six persons were seen off shore
just before the storm broke None of
I these had returned up to midnight and
i it is believed that the men perished
i The storm also spread havoc in New
Jersey and Connecticut At Rahway
it caused consternation at the races and
blew down the judegs stand
I Jn Connecticut houses were blown

stops were made along the route
Ashland the seat of the Randolph
Macon college had Mr Bryan two
minutes and most of those who heard
him there were students To them he
said I believe this county claims the
honor of being the birthplace of two
of Americas greatest men Henry
Clay the mill boy of the slashes was I
born in this county as was also Pat
rick Henry I believe the policy for
which I stand in this campaign in
some respects revives the memory of
both men Henry Clay in 1845 de
scribed the effects of contracting the
currency and Patrick Henry was in
faVor of an American policy
A few mere words were said to a
small number of people at Milford A
few hundred men women and boys
gathered at the railway station cheer i
ed Mr Bryan a he descended from
the train here accompanied by the
reception committee that had met him
at Richmond
The streets of this historic old town
were too muddy for the marching es
cort of the candidate to proceed with
comfort so that part of the procession
walked along the pavements while a
number of mounted men rode beside
his carriage A brass band led the i
parade which proceeded to the Ex 4
change hotel
At 1 oclock Mr Bryan was taken to
the monument erected to the memory
of Mary Washington the mother of 1
George Washington who lived here
with her distinguished son for many
years Here a stand had been erected
and the candidate addressed a large
gathering of Virginians He said
Ladies and Gentlemen I am grate
ful to the mayor of your city for his
eloquent words of welcome I a
glad to renew my acquaintance with
my colleague in congress who has so
kindly presented me and I am pleased
to greet the people who have assem
bled in such large numbers upon this
Fredericksburg is not a large city
and yet is rich in incidents of
Here the women of America have
reared a monument to Mary the mother
of George Washington Great ap
plause I a glad to stand on this
spot I a glad to feel the influence
which surrounds her grave In a cam
paign especially in a campaign like
and sometimes
this there is bitterness and smetmes
abuse levelled against the candidates
for public office but my friends there
is one character the mother the candi
date for the affections of all mankind
against whom no true man ever ut
tered a word of abuse Great applause
And there is one name Mother which
is never found upon the tongue of the
slanderers in her presence all criticism
is silent The painter has with his
brush transferred the landscape t the
almost believe
canvass so that you can alms
lieve that the trees and grasses art
real rather than imitations The pain
ter has even transferred to the can
vass the face of the maiden until its
vas almost speak forth
beauty and purity spa forh
but there is one picture which no int
er has ever been able t faithfully por r
tray and that Is a picture of a mother
holding in her arms her babe Great
applause Within the shadow of this
monument reared to her who in her I
love and loyalty was the mother of
each one of us I bow in humble
Great applause I a told that in
this countY were fought more battles
than any county of like size in the
world and that upon the earth within
the limits of this county there fell more
dead and wounded than ever fell on a
Smfer in all the history of the
similar space al te hisory

Here the ploughshare has ma1e
