Converse, who while secretary of the committee mado a splendid record for himself. William Plui.imer was elect ed treasurer. The executivo board was appointed this afternoon. The central committee unanimously adopted a rule which provides against nny candidate "treating" or offering money to voters. Any candidate vio lating this rule will be punished by having his name scratched from the ticket. This rule is received by the numerous candidates as a God feud and there is little chance of any of them violating it. The only ones who will suffer from the enactment of this vule. is that class of human leaches who make a practice of living off of men who are running for public offi ces. It was unanimously decided by the committee to hold the primary elec tion on Monday, February 10. It was suggested by one committeeman that the date for this primary be set for Monday February 3, but it was decid ed that this date would be too early. The following is the "anti-treat and anti-vote buying" rule adopted by the committee: "The use of money or other things of value, directly or indirectly, in any manner, for the purposa of influencing or with the intent to influence, voters in this primary election, and all "treat ing" by candidates is prohibited. "Any candidate who shall, directly or indirectly, either by himself or through others, hire or employ nny person to work for him at the polls on election day, or who shall, directly or indirectly, bv the use of money or other things of value, or by the prom ise of any reward, money or thing of value whatsoever, attempt to influ ence or induce anyone to vote for him i ..i t . . or who snau. during nis canvass, re port, to the common practice of "treat ing voters, is horehy declared ineli gible as a nominee tor any office at euch primary.

"This committee shall determine all questions arising under this rule, or the violation thereof, and the decision on finding of this committee shall be conclusive.

Thousands of Socialists Pa rade and Hold Monster Mass Meetings Declaring Against Decision. POLICE CORDONS CUT OFF HOME OF BUELOW. Officers Charged Mobs With Their Sabers and Many of The Demonstrants Were In jured in the Rush. BULLETIN. Berlin, Jan. It. The police vnis morning acted as mounted guards in all the principal street., and began dispersing the socialists who have bet n protesting against the refusal of uni versal suffrage. The pit nation is seri ous. Croat crowds shouted their abuse at Chancellor Von Buelow, who recently curtly refused to grant the right of suffrage.

The determination of the socialists to secure direct uni versal suffrage, combined with their indignation against Chancellor Von Buelow's curt declaration refusing their demand gave rise Sunday to an unusual scene and a monster popular demonstration accompanied by disor ders in the streets of the Prussian cap ital, in which 40.000 organized social ists paraded while 30,hm sympathizers from time to time actively joined iu the manifestations. One of the most remarkable features of today'j uprising was the number of women who engaged in the demonstra tion, and they appeared even more earnest in their activity than the men. The authorities -tooji the sternest measure to prevent disorders and the strictest precautions to protect the As sembly Public Building and Prince Von Buelow's residence against the outbreak of fury. Groups in the streets were dispersed in the most vigorous manner and the collision between processions of man- ifestants and the police resulted in the injury of a considerable number of the demonstrators, but so far as is known no fatalities occurred in this city. The police refrained from making arrests except in cases of extreme violence. The movement extends throughout Prussia, where the socialists aro ex ceptionally numerous. Reports re ceived from other cities, however, do not indicate that the demonstrations there were accompanied by violence. Notwithstanding the police warning tnat repressive measures would be ap plied, many thousand socialists gather ed in the morning at the 0tO local headquarters of the various districts of the capital and thence proceeded in groups, singing revolutionary songs, toward the eight halls in the city where mass meetings had been an nounced.

Squads of police, both on foot and mounted, patroled the central thoroughfares. The socialists showed great determi nation in their attempt to hold pro cessions, although the police made en ergetic endeavors to prevent this. Long before the hour of noon the time fixed to begin the meetings, all the halls were completely packed and the police drew up in force around the doors to hold the crowds in check. Resolutions favoring universal suf frage and a secret ballot were adopted by acclamation, after which the audi ences streamed into the streets. The police immediately attempted to dis perse the throngs, which showed an evident intention to march in proces sion toward ,the palace square. In most cases the processions were soon broken up. the police displaying the utmost energy. DOG WITH HUMAN INTELLIGENCE DIES. Hagerstown, Ind , Jan. 13. Jere miah E. Myers, a big stock rair and shipper had a valuable Scotch collie dog to die. The dog was valuable because of its almost hu man intelligence in herding and driving stock from one point to an other, often saving the labor of two or three men. Mr. Myers could send the dog to guard a cross-road until the stock passed. The owner had been offered large sums of money for him bv stockmen but could never be induced to part with the animal. Rome.
