Last night Grimes' Battery, Captain*
C. R. Warren commanding:, met In the

discussed.

accepted, and Second Lieutenant Ernest
T. Holt was promoted to fill the vacan?
cy by a unanimous vote of the battery.
There were three nominations made
for the position of second lieutenant,
made vacant by the promotion of Lieu?
tenant Holt?Sergeants C. A. Cuthrell,
Claud Burns and Cllf Frazler. The se?
lection was made in the second ballot,
Sergeant Cuthrell winning the coveted
honor.
The command then discussed the war
In the Philippines, and every member,
and there was a big meeting, without
hesitation, declared a readiness to re?
spond to the first call the President

mm CONVENTION
(Continued from First Page.)
dently took the matter seriously. One
of them. Captain Manor, pulled his re?
volver. His intention probably was to
protect Chairman Red wine, who had
made his way to the rear of the stage.
At any rate the crowd did not catch
sight of the weapon or the convention
might have developed what has been
momentarily feared for nearly a week
?u general fight.
The cause of the disturbance remov?
ed, comparative silence, and that was
not death-like, was restored.
A PATRIOTIC SONG.
One delegate shouted: "Mr. Chair?
man. I move the convention adjourn
to meet some future date In Manches?
ter. Clay county, Ky-"
A Hardin leader In front of the stage
asked the chairman If he would call
the roll on the nppeal.
"No, sir," came the determined an?
swer.
"My Country "Tis of Thee" began the
crowd, and for five minutes the con?
vention took part In an admirable ren?
dition of the national anthem. Patriotic
music had even a less Quieting effect
than religious.
"My Old Kentucky Home" followed
and the gathering became personal.
"Hang Redwine on a sour apple tree"
they chanted.
Meanwhile the chairman reclined in
his easy chair, his elbow on the table
with head resting on his hand, fanning
himself complacently.
WHISTLING SUCCEEDS SINGING.
In order to rest their vocal organs the
delegates started a round of whistling
with "A Hot Time" as the theme.
Chairman Redwine here showed the
first sign of impatience. Rapping the
t*blo sharply he said Imploringly:
"Gentlemen, how long !s this thing
going to Inst?"
ANOTHER SONG.
"Until we get a vote," came the re?
sponse like a Kansas cyclone, and the
crowd struck uxi, "We Won't Go Home
Till Morning."
The disorder continued without Inter?
ruption until after 5 o'clock, when the
Goebel men hit upon the plnn to have
county chairmen come to the stage and
cast the votes of their delegates. This
set their frenzied opponents besides
themselves with anger, but the roll call
proceeded, the awful din Increasing all
the while. County chairmen came to
the stage anil the clerk had to lean
over to very close range to catch a
word that was said. The Hardin men
and many Stone delegates did not vote.
After half an hour of the hardest kind
of work the ballot was finished and
announced as follows:
THE BALLOT.
Goebel. 352 Vi; Stone. 261'^; Hardin. 67.
The chair ordered another ballot,
whereupon Ollio .Tames, a big lunged
Stone leader, cried:
"All Hardin and Stone men refuse to
j vote-"
"They won't do It," the Geebelltes re?
sponded defiantly, and sure enough they
I did not. and predictions that have been
made that the weakness of Hardin and
Stone would show itself In the lack of
control over their delegates were veri?
fied. The last ballot, the thirteenth, re?
sulted: Goebel, 320V-j; Stone. 275; Har?
din, SO. By agreement between the
candidates the convention then ad?
journed until 10 o'clock to-morrow
morning.

DEATH ON THE RAIL.
A NERVY MAN KILLED IN NORTH
CAROLINA.
(By Telegraph to Vitginlan-Pllot.)
Charlotte. N. C, June 26.?A white
man named Parsons, whose home was
at Lenolr, N. C, was run over by a
Southern Railway train late last night
to Charlotte and lived about 30 minutes
after reaching hero. Ills body was en?
tirely severed just below tho waist, and
while lying on a stretcher talking to a
physician, tho unfortunate man saw the
lower half of his 'body removed to an?
other part of the room, and comment?
ed upon It. He told his name and talk?
ed very rational, and In a few moments
said to the doctor that he had only a
few more minutes to live and asked
that he be given something to stop the
pain. The doctor administered an
opiate and Parsons became quiet and
died in a few minutes. The man was
about 21 years old and was beating his
way on the train when killed.
A Rniiivny Traffic Arrangement.

Baltimore, June 26.?It Is denied at

had made a traffic arrangement with
the Southern railroad, rumors of which

THE QUEEN'S ARMY.
QUEEN VXCTOHIA. OF ENGLAND.
REVIEWS TROOPS.
(By Telegraph to Vlrglnlan-Pllot.)
London. Juno 26.?The Queen, the
Duke of Cambridge, the Prince of |
Wales, the Duke of York, Grand Duke
Michael, of Russia; the Duke of Con
naughty General Lord Wolseley, com?
mander In chief of the army; Colonel
Samuel S. Sumner. U. S. A., military
attache of the United States embassy
at London, and many Princes and
Princesses were present on the famous
plains of Aldershot to-day to witness a
review of over 1S.O0O of the best troops
In the Kingdom.
This review is interpreted in London
to-night as a means of satisfying Queen
Victoria that her troops are ready for
any emergency they may be called upon
to meet in tho Transvaal or elsewhere.
It is now known that the Queen re?
turned from Balmoral Castle, Scotland,
mostly for the purpose of attending
this review, and in view of the fact
of Her Majesty's natural reluctance
to attending such functions the import?
ance of this review is manifested.
Not since the Queen's Jubilee has a
more magnificent army corps passed
before an European sovereign, and
while six thousand additional troops
remained in their barracks, the display
afforded the Queen ample evidence 61
her military resources. All the regi?
ments which took part in the review
were those which would answer the
first hurry call to arms from the Trans?
vaal or elsowhere, and as the various
battalions s\\ unir past the royal carri?
ages their fitness evoked the heartiest
applause. Nearly 15,000 Infantry, 50
guns and 3,600 horsemen made their
magnlllcent display.
Nearly ull the foreign military at?
taches were present, and a profound
Impression was made upon tin in.
Colonel Stunner and the other at?
taches compared the army of the Queen
to a "forest of shimmering steel over?
hanging a scarlet sea" and character?
ised it as one of the finest reviews
within their experience.
? .lglilliou?e? Xofitfit on 1,. I. Canal,
More lights on the south shcre of Long
island are demanded by the shipping in?

Three large vessels went ashore 11?:.?
during the blizzard. When this coast is
well lighted as is the path to health by
Hosteller's stomach Bitters there will be

one to health who trusts to it. Don't
?judire it by what other remedies have
failed to do. but by what It has done. It
will prevent and cure Indigestion, consti?
pation and bllltousness. It will arouse
and strengthen Inactive livers and kid?
neys, and for weak, nervous people w:;!i
Impoverished blood and consumptive ten?
dencies, It is absolutely priceless. Give It
an honest trial, and don't be persuaded
Into taking "something Just as good."
Thero is nothing Just as good.

Plttsburg. June 26.?All the tin plate

THE TRANSVAAL.
ENGLAND'S SECRETARY OF COLO
NIES TALKS WAU.
(By Telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.)
Birmingham, Eng., June 26.?Joseph
Chamberlain, Secretary of State for
the Colonies, nddressed tho Unionists
of this city tliis evening, reviewing
carefully the Transvaal question. In
tho course of his SDoech he said that,
owing to tho enormous military pre?
parations of tho government of tho
South African Republic, Great Britain
?had been compelled to Increase the
garrison in t ape Colony and Natal, en?
tailing an additional expenditure of
(pounds) r>0,?'.'i> annually
Mr. Chamberlain said the govern?
ment had tried to establish friendly
relations with President Kruger, but all
their advances had been received with
contempt
After denouncing in the strongest
terms the attitude and actions of the
Boers, Mr. Chamberlain, with great de?
liberation and emphasis, added:
"The Transvaal's enormous secret
service fund has procured it friends
and advocates in every country. The
way the British subjects are treated Is
not only a menace to them, but inter?
ference with our prestige among the
natives, who now regnrd the Itoors and
not the British as the paramount
power.
"Beside the breaches of the London
convention, the Transvaal is flagrantly
violating the equality that convention
was intended to secure. Its misgovern
mcnt is a festering sore, poisoning the
whole atmosphere of South Africa. The
Dutch In Cape Colony and Natal would
he in the happiest condition, but so
long as the disease of hatred and sus?
picion prevails In the Transvaal It Is
Impossible to stop the contagion.
"Pour times since Independence was
granted, we hive been on the verge of
war with the Transvaal. It Is erron?
eous to say the British government
wants war; but It is equally erroneous,
to say thai the Government will draw
back now that It has put Its hand to
the plow.
"We hope the efforts that are now be?
ing made will lead to an amicable ar?
rangement, for Great Britain only de?
sires Justice, but there comes a time
when patience can hardly be distin?
guished from weakness and when
moral rrensure becomes a farce, that
cannot be continued without loss of
self-respect. I trust that time may
never come in this Instance, but If It
does. Britons will insist upon finding
the means to secure a result essential
to the peace of South Africa."

the Associated Press to the proposals
of the United States for the protection
of private properly at sea. with the
exception of contraband of war, In time
of war, from capture or seizure, said:
"We have strong grounds for making
the propositions. The President under?
stood the Russian Invttatl n comprised
the question of private property at sea
and has instructed us t > raise the
question. We will push the matter en?
ergetically. Insisting thai the confer?
ence Is competent and that if Its com?
petence is doubtful a liberal Interpre?
tation was necessary. We believe that
if the proposals are rejected they will
be referred to another conference. Any?
how they will have been most useful,
as the attitude of each power will be
denned. The State Department has
sent us a very strong pamphlet con?
taining resolutions passed by many
cities of the United States which has
been handed to each delegates."
