THE CINCINNATI CONVENTION.
j On the 22ud of June the democrat
! ie national convention met at Clucin
; nati with full delegations from every
| state in the Union for the purpose of
. nominating candidates for president
I and vice president. The most promi
i neut names mentioned for that honor
i were those of Seymour, Thurman,
! Tildeu, Bayard, Hendricks and Field,
j Mr. Seymour, however, placed a
t damper upon auy enthusiasm which
! might have resulted for him in the
convention by persistently refusing
to let his name be used iu that con
nection. Mr. Tildeu had many bit tod,
opponents among the delegates and
, none more so than the contesting
delegation f rom his own state. There
seemed but little opposition to Mr.
Bayard, while Mr. Field was strong
ly opposed by a portion of the Cali
fornia delegation. However, it seem
ed us if Tildeu would be able to con
trol a sufficient majority of the votes
to secure the nomination, until a let
ter was read before the New York
delegates from him declining to be
come a candidate. This set them all
at sea again and llie prohabi I ties of
any of the remaining prominent men
getting it became difficult. At 12:40
p. in. the convention was temporari- j
ly organized with Hon. Geo. Hoadly, j
{•of Ohio, iu the chair. Simply pre
; liminary work was accomplished and |
! the convention was permanently or
! ganized with Ex Governor Stevens, j
iof Kentucky, as chairman and ad- :
! journeJ until 10 a. m. next day- On '
reasst milling the convention pro- •
( cceded to consider the report of the i
I com mft tee on cr**d«*ntial* and sus-
I tallied it upon all points. Names
were then placed in nomination for a
candidate and one ballot was cast be- j
fore adjournment which resulted as !
i foiluws for the most prominent !
names before the convention :
Field 65 .
Bayard IC3J
Morrison 60
Hendricks 49|
Thurman 68}

Before the third ballot could be |
taken New York changed its seventy 1
votes to Hancock, rapidly followed (
by many other stales and he received ! ,
the nomination almost unanimously. !
Winfield Scott Hancock was born ' (
iu Montgomery county, Ponuaylva-! ,
uia, on February 14Ui, 1824 He ,
graduated at West Point in 1844. ami
served on the frontier uutil 1546, and i ,
also in the Mexican war. From 1848
to 1858 he aguin served ou the front- j
ier and from 1859 to 1801 was quarter
master of the southern district of (
California. At the breaking out of
the civil war he was called to Wash
ingtou and on September 23rd, 1861.
he was made brigudier-gcneral of
voluuteer*. lid took an active part ■
iu the battles of Williamsburg, : <
Frazer's farm. Ant idem. South <
Mountain, Chaucellorsville, Gcttys* \
burg, Wildcrncss.Spottsylvauia court i
house. North Anna, Cold Harbor and i
in the operations around Petersburg, i
After the battle of Autictcui he was i
made major-general and for his cou- 1
duct at the battle of Gettysburg he *
received the thanks of congress. Al- I
ter the war he was placed successive- i
ly iu command of the departments of i
Missouri, Louisiana and Texas, Da- ;
kola and the depirt incut of the East, i
hi 1868 he was a candidate for noini- j i
nation before the dcmociatic presi- ! i
d« iii ial convention held iu New York i
City, when Seymour was nominated, »
and received ns high as one hundred | i
and forty-four aud a half votes. i
For vice president. Hon. Thos. A. I
Hendricks of Indiana, received the i
unuuiiuouM vote of tho conveuliou. i
General Hancock, the democratic J i
nominee for president, is probably { I
the strongest man they could have j i
selected out of the eighteen names ■<
presented nt the Cincinnati coiiveu- ! i
tlon. Like General Garfield lie is a '
man against whose name no hand 1
can bo successfully raised to cast a 1
slain upon his private or public char
acter. Ho served his country faithful
ly once iu time of need ami should
he bo elected we have no doubt
would do so again. His democracy
is all there Is detrimental to the man.

Another Ending.
p After the declareJ martial
j law ill Lead v I lie and placed General
I Cook iu command of the rualitia,
; quiet at once prevailed. At a meet
ing between the Miners’ Uuiou and
j the maiitia officers, it was agreed
that the men should go to work
ugaiu at lot met* wages, aiid the strik
ers pledged themselves to use no fur
| tliur intimidation towards ineu who
j wished to work ou ten hour shifts/
; Oil the other hand nine owners
; agreed not to lock out ineu who
! had beeu engaged iu tiie strike, who
1 ditl liut intimidate others. Near!} all
of the mines at once resumed work
and the out-put of ore is reported
greater than ever. Taking it all iu
all the strike was one of the most
orderly which ever occurred iu the
Cuitcd States,'and very little violence
was attempted.
On General Cook so requesting

Reported death of Mrs. Sam'l Bradbury
The numerous friends of Mrs.
Samuel Bradbury, until recently a
well-known re* id out in Canon City,
will be deeply grieved to hear of her
short illness and sudden decease at
Gothic City, on Friday of last week.
The particulars concerning Mrs.
Bradbury** death we are unable to
&.-(vrt&in, bui the sad fact reutaius to
, _ '~ mi »-i. .
be inoutntolU*
were so fortunate as to iuak, her ac
quaintance both here and elsewhere.
To know her was to love her. and we
cau truly say a kinder heart, a gen
tler voice, a sweeter face, a more
tender, sympathetic disposition we
have never found. Grandma Brad
bury was the HHectiouate title gen
erally given her by the younger peo
ple, while she appeared like a true
mother to many older. Su h a loss !
can never be replaced, alas! there
are too few »>u earth like our beloved'
Grandma Bradbury. The true sym
pathy of their friends will j-o out to
those relatives so sadly bereaved and
we trust that they may find solace iu
the thought that oue wh.-se duty
towards God and man h . . been so
creditably discharged would tiud a'
: cii reward iu the home of the just, j
Dashed to Death.
Last Suudav (_'. C. Ilcrrou. a labor
vr employed on the Deliver £ Kio i
Uramie railroad some distance east
of this city, came up here lor some
purpose and as the freight traiu for
the ca>t was pulling out, just after
the departure ot the west bouud pas
senger train, Herron ami a compan
ion attempted to board it wheu it
was uudur rapid motion about oppo
site the Fasftett Uuduclion Works.
His companion succeeded in mount
ing the train in safety but Herron had
first to throw a bundle, which he did
amt then catching upon a car at

ing so his feet were drawn uuder the
ears aml ho was thrown violently
upon the ground, turning over ami

was at once not if. • and summoning
a jury he hastened to the spot, and
held ail inquest. The jury rendered
a verdict )»*• accordance with the evi
dence given which was substantially
as hero reported. It was learned
that he had relatives liviug iu Scio,
Ohio, who were telegraphed the sad
intoligencc. ilis body was not at all
nmtigied by the wheels but the vio- j
lencc of the fall upon the ground
killed him. No otto is blamed for
the lameutable accident.
Had the Southern democrats | u
congress show u the same regard lor
Unlou soldiers who held minor po
sitions that they did in their nomina
tion for president, their chance* of
success next tall would have been
better. The suddeu change come too
late.
Now that both parties have nomi
nated houost and loyal men the tight
will be one of principle.
