WOMEN'S CLUBS CONVENE
1'iTTSBtKO, Pa., May 27. Tha open
log session of the national prohibition
convention to day was an experience
meeting. I he convention snow
clisprsnion to do its work well and to
deal carrfulty and deliberatoly with
i the matters to be disposed of, though
i the proceedings were not so colorless
that it political expert could fail to dis
cern here and there an Indication of
the straggles to come. If for nothing
elso the convention will b? the most
. important ever held by the cold water
people, for it will decide whether the
party in future con line its attention ex
clusively to the dominant idea of thu
liquor traffic prohibition, or shall doal
with other practical issues also. '
Th convention was called to order
at 11 o'clock, but long before that
hour the big hall began to fill up with
the delegates, while iu the gallery
were seated hosts of valiant adherents
. thr T&perJnoo cause, both men
tnd women. There was roDrn for
everybody. Tho decorations of the
convention hall were tasteful and appro.
priute. The .delegates had been well
attended to, so nobody had cause for
petting out of temper. Among the
lirst to enter tho ball was the Maryland
delegation, prepared to do or die for
Levering, their choice for the presi
dency. Then came the Indiana dele
gates, fifty strong, and each wearing
tbe silver colors. To the right of the
speaker's platform was seated the
Ohio. delegation, and others occupying
places near the plaiiori) were the rep.
. resentatives of West Virginia, Penn
sylvania, Illinois, Michigan, Georgia,
Colorado and Missouri. Eleven bun.
dred' delegates, and almost as many
alternates occupied tbe tloor.
Chairman Dickie's beaiing was con-
J' oiliaiory as he called the convention to
order and disposed of the preliminaries
necessary to every national gathering.
Tbe delegates were cordially welcomed
by II. L. Castle, of Pittsburg, to whose
address response was made by Chair-
. man-Dickie. Next came -the opening
address of the temporary chairman,
which was several times interrupted by
the -applause which greeted the arrival
of some well known delegate. In the
groupings of the states all the old-time
Jeaders were to be found who have
been prominent in prohibition conven
tions for years past, but there were
also noticeable a large number of new
facts, showing that the much needed
new blood is being infused into the
ranks. The chairman's spceoh was a
felicitous one. His manner was, ploaa
ant, and be succeeded in making tbe
entire gathering hear all he had to say.
Though a factional- leader, tbe chair
man said nothing to which tbe parti
sans pf either wing could take excep.
tion. Tbe speech was a clear-cut
analysis of prohibition doctrine. Tbe
spirit of party loyalty breathed through
it, and this is met with a' responsive
.echo ftmong the delegates.
Jluriiig the several hours the conven
tion was devoting to the transaction of
routine matters, little significance
could he attached to any of the inci
dents, yot the enthusiastic applause that
greeted Joshua Levering, of Maryland ;
C. E. PentU y, of Nebraska; George VV.
Bain, Of Kentucky ; V. II. Thompson,
of Ohio, and Kx Liuut.-Gov. Metcaif,
of Rhode Island, made it plain that all
these gentlemen ara considered in the
light f f presidential quantities. The
demonstrations that greeted John G.
Wo'iley, of Illinois, and Ex Governor
St. John, of Kansas, showed easily
' these two erjoyed immense popularity
among oold water advocates, (hough
tbe welcome cf the iflU named seemed
"""to be more in the galleries than in tbe
ranks of the delgates. After the roll
call, the usual committers on creden
tials, rules and platform were appoint,
ed, a motion to adjourn until to-morrow
morning was made and carried
Without dissent. .
'jTTsjBCtto, Pa., May 27 Tbe work
nl constructing tbo platform of the na
tional prohibition convention has been
turned over to a half-dozen sub-com-tuUlecs,
which are lo meet and begin
their labor?, late this afternoon. It
raay he predicted that if a currency.
l!ank Is Inserted in the platform a bit
ter struggle will ensue, for one-bulf the
delegates are opposed to taking np tbe
financial question at all, wbile the
iitber half is hopelessly split between
ffslA and silver. . The western dele
gated, led by ex Governor St. John, de
clare that if a plank that c in be con.
atiucd in fayor of tbe gold standard, be
adopted, they will no longer remain in
the party. On theother band, tbe oppos
ing forces, under tbe leadership of Na
tional Chairman Dicl-.ie, Isaac Funk,
of Bqooklyo.and William G. Ward well,
treasurer of tbe Standard oil company,
wi!! bolt in case the convention de
clares for free silver. Tbe sub com.
tnitlee on tariff will probably recom.
tmend for adoption the tamo tariff
plats; embodied in tbe platform of the
.national convention of 1892.
Kttsbcho, Pa , May 27 Thcugh
1 the lust twenly-four hours has seen
spirited nAfs on tbe part of a half
dcr.en or mora candidate?, and rumors
of deal luve teea floating in abun
dance, a!l predictions to tbe pies'
des'lal nomination are still problemat
ical. The Jlorj landers are claiming
let Levering the votes of nine-lentbs
fit the eastern delegates, but this is at
variance with tbe (act as tbe appear
on the surface and a careful canvass of
all tbe delegates, both of wbioh poln
to a division of tbe New England
strength between Levari nrr Metcall
and Wardwetl. walls a ptri, at least,
of the New York delegation i ei
peoted to support Henry Clay Basconi
of Troy. 'J be silver men, tince the
oauous of last night, appear to present
a mors solid front, and will give Chase
K. Bentley, the Nebraska commutes

on the first ballot. - r or- tbe second

after which a candidate lor Vice presi
dent will be chosen from the opposite

Moscow, May 27 Though the
great spectacular event - of the
coronation fetes has come and gone,
the festivities continue without any
noticeable abatement In intensity or
enthusiasm. As yet tbe multitude of
visitors in tbe ancient capital show no
inclination to take their departure, and
it is probable tbe great majority will
remain another week for the court
balls, receptions, theatrical presents.

pomp and splendor will be brought to

ther congratulations .from the foreign
ambassadors and deputies this morn-

grace and siu against Uod, are being prac
ticed every day in our midst. Tbo writer
saw a horse fall lu tbe harness, the other
day, for no other reason than that ba was
so old and poor and weak that bis strength

These are only two examples of what
may be seen of a similar character, almost
any day. It ought to be frowned upon
and prevented. Meats killed after such
cruelty, are declared to be unhealthy and

abandonment of mercy. It would be a
