■j J. H. ES'i'ILL, Editor and Proprietor, f CLEVELAND SURE TO WIN. EX-SENATOR M’DONALD talks ABOUT POLITICS. the President’s Administration De clared a Thoroughly Good One—No Danger of a Split in the Party in 1888 —The Morrison Bill Met the Views of the Ex-Senator. Chicago, July 26. —Ex-Senator Joseph E. McDonald, of Indiana, was in the city to-day and was seen by a reporter. He said: “I am out of politics now, and am only a private in the ranks. This is an off year in politics in our State. You see we have adopted the biennial election law, and we have absolutely one year in which there is ao politics whatever. “About the outlook for 1888, I think that a majority of the Democratic editors of the State favor President Cleveland's renonii aation. He has mode a good record during his administration. He is a thor oughly conscientious man, and I don’t think ho has done a single thing to curry favor with the public. He docs what he considers right, let the consequences be what They may. THE FLAG INCIDENT. “Well, about those flags there was a mis understanding. I don’t believe the Presi dent ever gave the matter a thought until the question was raised, and then he promptly rectified it. He will undoubtedly be the nominee of the convention. His nomination and election were experiments the first time, bnt now they are not. There can be no split in the party this time. “As for the tariff, the Ohio resolutions meet my ideas pretty well. Every one knows that there is too heavy a surplus in the Treasury, and it is constantly increas ing. I believe that the internal revenue system is nearly right. I would reduce the tax on tobacco, but would maintain the tax on beer and liquors. Internal revenue must lie the basis of our reform policy, MtU from this our country must receive its supplies. Custom duties should be taken off the necessities of life and what is called raw material. PROTECTING LABOR. “Everything that enters into the manu facture of necessary articles should remain an the list. I am not a destructive free trader, I'd have you know. I would not touch the iron schedule at present. The Morrison bill that was reported favorably, by the Ways and Means Committee was a good one, and would have come very close to my idea. I think it was a fair bill. I think this country is destined to lie one of the greatest manufacturing centres of the world. For that reason I would not interfere with protection of manufacturers at present. But the tax on coal should be removed. Three-quarters of all the coal in the world is in this country, and I believe it should tie free to enter. The great qestion of the day is cheap fuel, and the government uhould do all it can to solve the question. There is no reason why the United States should not compete with the rest of the world successfully.” INDIANA’S CONSPIRATORS. fho Evidence Concluded and Argu ment to Begin To-Day. Indianapolis, July 26. —The evidence in the election conspiracy cases was concluded to-day and the argument will begin to-mor row. Defendants Coy and Shaun were on the stand and entered a point blank denial of the allegation of State’s evidence. Wit ness Perkins, as to their complicity in the Conspiracy. The defense concluded its evi tienco with the testimony of a number of witm -s.-es as to previous rood character of the defendants. State St liator Morgan H. Weir, Democrat, was introduced in rebuttal by the government, and testified that during the session of the Legislature, when Defend ant Counselinan had been employed as door keeper of the Senate, a disposition prevailed among certain Senators to dismiss him for cause, and that Defendant Coy came to him (Weir) and said: “We must keep Coun- Belman sure, or else he will squeal about the tally-sheet cases.” On the strength ■>f this Counselinan was retained. The prose cution closed by introducing Chief of Police I ravi,, ex-Chief Laud a number of mem tiers of the present and old police forces, who testified that the reputation of Coy and Mattie r were bad.

Great Barrington, Mass., July 36.—A sareful inspection of the flooded area shows that the devastation has been more wide spread than has been reported.

When the cloud burst, the air seined to fill with water and in a very short time the valley became transformed into a white-eap)>ed lake. Nearly all of the crops in the valley were destroyed, and it will take years to restore to the land its former fertility, so deep) , is it covered witli stones and sand brought down by numerous land slides. Although the damage to prop,Try was very great, the reports of loss of life have beau exaggeiated. The only body found is that o' Air. Drum, of Caroyvllle.

The Significance of the Convention’s Fight on Sherman. Toledo, 0., July 36. —Although the Re publican State Convention does not moet until to-morrow afternoon at 4 o’clock, and not over one-half the delegates have yet ar rived, the hotels are crowded. Extraordi nary interest is taken in the proceedings be cause of the fact that resolutions will be offered in the convention indorsing Senator Sherman for the Presidential nomination. The convention in reality is thus made of national importance, and this accounts for the tremendous attendance. There is no doubt that the resolutions will be carried in the convention. TWO THINGS IN DOUBT. Two things in doubt are, how strongly it will be opposed on the floor of that body, and whether the opposition can muster suffi cient strength to break the force before the country of the indorsement. The opponents of tile resolution claim they can muster at least one-third of -the convention, while the supporters of it declare that it will go through with a whirl and that the op position will be too insignificant to amount to anything but an exhibition of personal dislike. Senator Sherman arrived at 5 o’clock this evening. He was met by a re ception committee and several local Repub lican clubs with music, who escorted him to his hotel. Gov. Foraker is detained at the capital by business and will not arrive until 8 o’clock to-morrow. ARRESTED AFTER 17 YEARS. A Double Murderer’s Wanderings Brought to an End.

Augusta, Ga., July 26.—There is groat trouble among the Knights of Lalior in this city. District Master Wot liman Davis has lieen deposed 'and there is great, disaffection in the ranks. It develops that the fight dates back to the admissson to the order of a prominent physician. A day or so after his initiation there was promulgated anew constitution forbidding membership to doc tors of medicine. Then an attempt, with which the District Master Workman was identified, was made to oust the doctor, tint, the assembly which he has joined fought iiis tight. The different phases of tho affair cannot be traced, but it seems to have reached a climax Saturday night, when the District Assembly remained in session until late Sunday morning. It de veloped to-day that the Master Workman’s official head is cut off and that William Ne xls, a Georgia road employe, has lieen set un temporarily in his stead. The row is a well defined one, and the indications are that the order is not likely to hold together here long. They go so far as to say that race and religious quad ions have been used to widen the breach. Emmet Assembly is tlie branch which waged tho N. H. Davis fight so successfully. PROHIBITION BOOMING.

Court Orders That Rent as Revised by That Payablo by Tenants bo Made Compulsory Instead of Permissive —Mr. Parnell Moves to Eliminate Clause Four. London, July 26.— Mr. Balfour, Chief Secretary for Ireland, in reply to questions in tlie House of Commons this afternoon, defended the proclaiming under tlie crimes act of counties ill Ireland which are in a partially disturbed state. He said it was true that the public statistics of crime did not indicate a serious state of things iu Ire land, but lie reminded tlie House that be sides the recorded outrages, the government were guided by other information furnished by responsible officers. The government could not admit, however, that tlie constitu tional liberties of anybody were taken away by tin proclaiming of tho counties. [Cries of “Oh.”] RENT revision. Iu the House of Commons to-night, in the debate upon clause two of the land hill, tho government accepted Mr. Morley’s amend ment making compulsory instead of permis sive a court order that rent as revised be the rent payable by tenants. Mr. Finurane (Nationalist) moved to make the revision retrospective to tlie extent of Donegal. Mr. Balfour opposed the motion. Mr. Parnell suggested as a compromise that tlie revision affect rent payable in Donegal following application Lord Randolph Churchill said he thought the Parnellites were pressing tlie govern meat hard, but he advised acceptance of the compromise. Mr. Smith said that the government was unable to accept such a compromise, hut tie promised that if tho motion were with drawn tiie government would try to deal with the matter in the report stage. The motion was thereupon withdrawn. Clauses two and three were adopted. Mr. Parnell moved to eliminate clause 4, which provides for written notification of evictions. Mr, Balfour said he appreciated the warn ing of prolonged opposition to the clause, hut lie hail to announce a firm determination of tho government, to ndliero to it. [Cheers and cries of “Oh, Oh.”] Lord Randolph Churchill expressed stir prise at the attitude of the government. He thought the ministry were prepared to maintain an open mind with regard to the clause, against which he must enter a strong protest as a measure that raised unnecessa rily contentious matter. Was the clause so important, lie nski-d, that the government would urge it upon the Upturn as a separate bill) [Cries of hear, hear, and a voice coercion bill No. 31. The clause, lie continued, would not aid in securing the object of the bill, which was to stay harsh evictions. He certainly thought that tlie government ought at least**) agree to postpone the subject. Maj. Saunderson (Conservative) hoped tho government would stand fast, and Mr. Balfour repeated his refusal to abandon tho clause or postpone its discussion. Under the advice of Mr. Gladstone the Paniellitce have abandoned their intention to move an adjournment for tlie purpose of challenging the government with reference to tho Irish proclamations. The opposition does not want to interfere with tin* progress of the land bill if tho government con tinues to shape the clause iu consonance with home rulo aims. The action of (he Irish Executive will bo mode the subject of motion of censure by Mr. Morley after the land bill lias been set tied, and the debate fin thi censure motion will bo tiie concluding excitement of the session. The government proposes to abate don tlie bill providing for tlie trial for graver offences by a commission of Judges. The session will thus bo somewhat short ened. PROTESTING CONSTABLES. Dublin, July 26. —Two more members of the Irish constabulary resigned yesterday evening as a protest against tho crimes act. The government havo revised the list of Irish magistrates. Many of the older ones will bcnlaoed on tlie pension list and will be replaced by younger and more active men. SUPPOIITING PARNELL. Messrs. Morley and Dillon supported Mr. Parnell's motion. Mr. Dillon suiil he re garded the clause a* one of the most deadly stabs ever aimed at the interests of the Irish tenants, and whenever it was discussed he would doom it his duty to exhaust every form known to the House in opposing it. Mr. .Smith said the government Is-lieved that the clause was necessary. If called upon to face uncompromising opposition they would rattier meet it now than appear 'to give way when they did not intend to give any. [Cheers.] Mr. Chamberlain said that after the tin-cuts of Mr. Dillon he would support tho government. Moasis. Parnell and Dillon protested but the chairman decided that Mr. Chamberlain was in order. Tlie latter proceeding reminded the Par nellites that they were engaged in discussing the most magnificent concession ever made by any government to Irish tenants. The government, he de clared, could not possibly accede to all their demands. Eventually the amendment was rejected by a vote of 212 to 150. Earl of Aberdeen, in an interview to-day with a representative of tho Dublin Freeman, said he was much impressed with tlie earnest sympathy for the Irish autonomy in the colonies n:id America. He returns to England with hi* autonomist convictions deepened nnd inteii silltxl, and rejoices in the indications of the steady and rapid growth of British opinion iu favor of home rule.

The cause for the resignation was a minor breach of etiquette at Kpithcud during the naval review last Saturday, when a private signal made by Lord Charles from the royal yacht was con verted into a public scandal. While the Queen was receiving the captains of the fleet in the saloon of the royal yacht Albert and Victoria, Lord llcresford, who was on the yacht, signalled to the Enchantress, aboard which his wife was, the following message: '“Tell Lady Charles to go immedi ately aboard the yaelit i .ancaaliire Witch, where 1 will join her.” THE captain knkagkd. The Captain of the Enchantress, when the signal was given thought of course that it was a special royal command, but as the message was slowly spelled out he became greatly enraged. Ho had, however, to smother his feelings, not daring to report Lord Charles, in view of his position as Lord of (lie Admiralty. The Captain could not refrain, however, from complaining privately to his friends, and in this way a reporter of the Times learned of the incident. The result, was the publication of the story in Monday’s issue of the Times, Lord Charles than had no option but to re sign. The iucidont is believed to be un paralleled. Disclipliuarians declare that Lord Ohnrlos’ Conduct, was virtually a gross insult to the Queen. The permanent offi cials of the Admiralty office, it is said, are delighted over the position in which “Re former Beresford” is placed by the affair. CANADA'S SEIZURES. A Fine of S4OO Impoeed on tho Annie W. Hodgclon. Halifax, N. 8., July 24. —'The ease of the Gloucester fishing schooner Annie W. Ilodgdon, seized yesterday at. Hhelburne, is similar to most of last year’s seizures for customs violations, and has no connection with the fisheries treaty. Tho vessel, which had previously been only detained awaiting orders from Ottowa, was to-day formally seized on the charge of violating the Cana dian customs laws, and a due of S4OO was imposed. All the vessels seized last season on a similar charge were fined either S2OO or S4OO each, the fine lie ing deposited in every case under protest and afterwards nearly the whole amount was refunded to the various owners, only the nominal sum of S2OO or thereabouts being retained. The government’s action respecting the Ilodgdon is therefore some what odd, the offense lieing no more serious than any of those committed before, cact. knowr.ton posted. Capt. Knowlton, of the cruiser Advance, who made the capture, was informed some days ago that tin' Hodgdon was on the western crust and it was suspected that she was in seal ch of bait, hut so far there is no proof* of violation of tho treaty and she is held simply for tho customs offense. When she was seized t here was some fresh codfish in a tub on deck, which Capt. Morrison stated had been brought on board by missing men who lmd just lieen found. There is no evidence in contradiction of this, and it is probable that the fish were really caught on Brown’s Bank, being taken from trawls before the men strayed away in the fog. After tho instructions were re ceived from Ottawa to impose S4OO fine, the Customs Collector at Wood requested Capt, Morrison to bring the schooner to the wlmrf, which was done, and she now lies in the dock in charge of the Collector’s men. Capt. Moirisou has telegraphed to his owners asking whether the fine shall bo paid, but lias not yet received an answer. Negro Troops May Attend. Chicago, July 26.—'The order issued by Gen.

( FIUCE *IO A YEAH. 1 j A CEidTH A COPY, f CONTRACTS COME HM, A I A MEAT DEALER’S EXPERIENCE WITH THE CROOKS. Ton Thousand Dollars Paid For tha Privilogo of Supplying the County Institutions in 1884 and 1885—Mo Gariglo Believed to Have Gone to Manitoba via Milwaukee. Chicago, July 26. —Sheriff Matson haa caused a circular to bo printed offering on his own account a reward of $2,500 for tha capture of McOarigle. The circular will lia sent to all the principal cities in the United States. An intimate Mend of McGarigle's* named Chapman, tells a story of meeting McGuriglo in Milwaukee Sunday morning. Chapman did not then know of McGarigl' ’* escape. Notwithstanding this he wasnl mil to greet McOarigle when the lattef gave him tho cut direct and disappeared in tlie crowd. The impression has grown to a conviction that when Chapman saw him McOarigle was about to take a train for t'u# Northwest, and that he is now safe in Mani toba. McOarigle’s fattier, two brothers and brother-in-law live in Milwaukee, and it is ix't'fectly natural that he should have gone I here, as he could take a train for Milwau kee almost immediately after his escape from the Sheriff.

Robinson, a wholesale grocer, each of whom had turned Htnte’s evidence. McDonald has always nosed as a “reform* member of the county board, but had not taken the oath of office six days when ho commenced receiving money for his vote.
