Then they played "Dixie" and "Hornpipe" and the crowd yelled and cheered and all the while the rain poured down from black clouds so dense that without electric arc lights recognition of persons three feet away would not have been possible in the hall. The lightning was vivid and the rain penetrated the flat roof of the great wigwam, which resembles a Hud son ice house, and trickling threads and streams of water tell upon the delegates and spectators. Umbrellas were hoisted all about the hall and club banners were stowed away for safety against drowning. Finally after nearly three-quarters of an hour. Bragg resumed his speech for Mitchell.

It became only a question of time and when the two-thirds vote Stevenson hadi been obtained the nomination was announced.

I CHimeAo, June 23.-Tonight after the adjournment of the national conventior the following significant document wai framed and wired to the west: To the democrat voters of Colorado: The nomi. nation of Cleveland and palpable evasive declarations upon the silver question by the national democratic convention con fronts the democratic party of Colorado with a serious prcblem. If the conven tion had declared that free bi-metallic coinage was a tenet of the party and had Mr. Cleveland accepted the nomination upon such a platform we might have re stored upon his reputation for honesty and believed that he would, in response to obligations thereby imposed, sign a free coinage bill should congress pass one. But with a platform that is intended to be quoted in the east as not binding the party in any degree to free coinage and in the west as being favorable to it, and with a candidate for the presidency whose past utterances and official acts show him to be unalterably opposed to free coinage. it is plain that with Mr. Cleveland as president. free coinage cannot be realized during the term of his administration. As between Mr. Cleveland and ilr. Harrison there can be no choice to free coinage men. Both have acted and spoken with rec ords that embody their judgments. These records show themi to be enemies to the cause so dear to Colorado hearts, and unless free coinage can be cast aside as of secondary importance to the coun try's welfare the plain question is pre sented to both democrat and republicin voters: Can they honestly. with full sense of their obligation to self, home. state. and party aid either of them to the pres dency' This is not a question for us to answer. It is for the party. We assume no responsibility except to speak the truth without paltering. We simply make a plain statement for the party to consider and act upon. This far. under the peculiar cir cumstances. we deem it our duty to go. It is for the party after a full considera tion to determine the rest. That this may be done as speedily as possible we recommend that the proper authorities shall call the party together in delegate convention that the matters involved may be acted upon. T'. M.

Ve News Gathering Under Didnnuities. lSiopeclal Correspondence.I D LoUIsvILEi, June 16.-One of the most lo valuable newspaper properties in the t- south is the Louisville Courier-Journal. Ic Its influence in public matters through ,d out the south and southwest is perhaps n greater than that of any other journal. In the budding up of such a newspa per there has been called into play t :e y highest order of executive skill and t'.e e most thorough knowledge of the busi a ness of newspaper publishing. The Cou 0 e d d SVAiLTIE N. IlALntDI MN. rier-J urnal could never have liven what it is without the brilliant editorial pen of Henry Watterson; it wouid have is-n quite ns iunch of an impossibility with out thlle nnngetio and sagacious mnantnge ment of Walter Newman Haldeman. Though well known mon;g newspaper publishers everywhere, and to all people of his native state, Mr. Haldemanas life of business has made imu less familiar ly known to the general public than his colaborer. Mr. Warterson, lint he is in man of remarkable character and with a career as full of intinrest as it is of sn cess. April 27 Mr. Hallenain celebrated hi seventy-first birtnhay. His yena, sit well uponn hinn, and in spite of theil he is still a constant and tireless worker lie is a native of Maysville. Ky. His father was of Swiss origin, but both his pir ents came to Kentucky from Pennsyl vania. He began life as clerk in a Louis villo business house, having received his education in the schools at Alaysville. General Grant was his schoolnate dur ing part of the time. In 15(40 he joindI the newspaper workers as bookkeeper f for tine Louisville Journinl, diteeper the brilliant Georgn D. Prentice. Iu 1814 he became owner of The Daily Dime, a paper which had been unsutn cesfnnlly run for about eleven monnthn and which he took to secure it debt. l-HI thus began by accident his career as a newspaper publisher. In June, 1844, he enlarged The Dinne and elhangeul its namne to Tine MIornninig Courier, a paper whose name is still pre served in that of The Courier-Journal. During the next ten years he took in nt a different times a number of partners. but always bought back the interest he had sold. The task of establishing the paper required patience and hard work. and only one of his indomitable pluck would have stuck to it. By 15i%4 he hdin n it on a paying basis, and in 1J9 he in corporated a publication conlpain. MIr. n Haldeman's time was mainly divote-i to the business interests of t he paper, a though he wrote a great deal uitn wrote, well. There are few better paragraphers, and his close supervision of every part of the paper and his energy and liberal ity in gathering news under the difficult conditions then prevailing in the west won success. In 1861 The Courier, which sided with the south, was suppressed by General Robert Anderson and the office seized. Ur. Haldenman avoided arrest through the timely warning of one of his employ ees, who overheard two Federal officers Siscussing the plans for capturing him. He made his way to General Uuckner's headquarters at Bowling Green, Ky., in September, 1l01, and soon after, at the direction of the Confederate authorities, began the publication of The Courier within the Confederate lines. He es tablished an office and an associate ed itor at Bowling Green and went himself to Nashville, where the paper was set up and printed, because of the impossi bility of securing the necessary outfit at the smaller place. The paper retained its Kentucly identity by its Bowling Green date line, and the Louisville-Bowl ing Green-Nashville Courier furnished many a merry jest to the Federals and the northern papers. The paper, which was issued wholly from Nashville after the Confederate evacuation of Kentucky, was a success from the first. It became instantly a favorite with the army and the people of the south, and attained a circulation limited only by its mechanical facilities. Securing reliable news from the north was a difficult matter, but that was what was wanted within the Confeder ate lines, and Mr. Haldeman met the demand. He gained in those trying times an experience both of the value of news and of the possibilities of an or ganized news service which has since been valuable to him. A number of ac tive men wer- employed in the danger ous service of procuring files of northern newspapers for The Courier, and so per fect and regular was the service that the military authorities relied on The tourier for information. The adven tures of these messengers in passing through the lines in search of news were often ex-iting. After the war Mr. Haldeman re sumed the publication of The Courier at Louisville, and in 1808 it was consoli dated with The Journal, which had then passed from the control of Mr. Prentio. to that of Mr. Watterson. The consolidated paper, called The Courier Journal, has enjoyed uninterrupted prcsperity, repaying its ewnere so hand. somely that Mr. Haldeman has been en. abled to become a large investor is other enterprises and to accumulate a splendid fortune. Personally Mr. Haldeman is the most agreeable of men. Business cares do not sour him. He is at his desk more hours it the day than his most faithful em ?loyee, attending personally to a large correspondence, receiving at the same time a constant stream of callers and supervising every detail of The Courier. Journal. Every winter he runs off to his southern residence at Naples, on the Florida coast, for several months of rest and tarpon fishing. He is modest and unostentatious in his life and the most approachable of men. He really enjoys his work, and interruptions never annoy hint. His manifold interests in bust ness-for no man is more ready to go into a new enterprise-his known lib erality in giving to church and charity, his political interests and his newspaper work make him much sought after, but he has always refused to interpose any ceremony to prevent callers from coming unannounced to his private office. Noth ing in The Courier-Journal escapes his eye, and he is quick to note and reward faithful service. Mr. Haildnman spefds money lavishly to tlroeure n-ws and to provide the latest improved machinery for his papers, pnt lishing The Evening Times in addition to The Conrier-Journal.

Ills., June lfl.-,Bitten by a tullt 1g1" is the startling headline 1 llit will soon begin to attract the eyes of readers of the daily press. It is in. deed a horrible experience. and the av erage person shrinks instinctively front the thoughts of such a fate. Is there it cure for hydrophobia? It is said that Pasteur its discovered one, and if this celebrated Paris physician has really succeeded in providing a remedy for the poisonous bite of a rabid dog. he will certainly be untitled to the thanks of all hunuikind. It is said that few persons bit tin Irv dogs and who flie in spasms are realfly viftimts of rabies, but of iln ugifatiof. lie this as it may. the death of i person who imagines all lie sefs and who is evidently sufffring all the toirents of the diuffel, is a mtfost terri 1fe one. Of all filllgefd furls ifor hydro photia the nffdstonf." so called, is the most noted. Thera is certainly a litri kaifle mifd stone inf thI plfinn'-51f of Thof ts Orton, aI pioneer farffer living if t he lit tIe town of Denver, Hancock county. Ills. Mr. Orton is at iloneer of ,tle Kfiftuck," and ff m( to Illinois along in the thirties. 1te brought with him the Orton atad stone which has been in the posssstuion of his family for zmany years. The stone has a history. It was found in an In diant mound in a southern state many years ago by a voudoo Indian doctor, and by hint given to a negress who, as said, paid the penalty of its use int cur THtE SlADSTONI. rig shake and dog bites with her life, ffs she was regarded as a witch. The stone fell into the possession of a minister named Hoagland, who was a neighbor of the Ortots in Kentucky. Hoagiatd's boy was a schoolIfmute of one of the Or ton boys and traded the stone to Orton s father, then i Iad, for a jackknife. While this stone remained in Ken tucky it was used in curing innutfer able cases of snake and dog fite. Since it has been in the possession of Mr. Thomas Orton, at Ifenver, fully 11l0 nmen, women and children have tested its vir tues, and it is a matter of record that in one instance only did the stone fail to prevent the occurrence of the horrible disease. The case in question was that of a farmer living in Fulton county. Ills., who had been bitten by a mad dog, and who had neglected to have the wound properly attended to, as stated. He was in the incipient throes of the horrible malady when the stone was ap plied. Two others bitten by the same dog, who applied the madstofe at once, suffered no inconvenience from their wounds. It is known that in a majority of the cases treated the victims had been bitten by dogs afflicted with rabies. The accompanying illustrations are from photographs of both sides of the Orton madstone. Before applying the stone a physician scariles the wound. The stone is then boiled for some time in milk and water, and becomes soft and spongy. The smooth side of the stone is then applied. In every instance it adheres instantly Ind remains clinging to the wound for several hours. Often the green, slimy blood and water drawn from the wound soaks through the stone, running out upon the floor through the little pores, or honeycombs, shown on one side of the stone. All patients speak of ex periencing a drawing sensation when the stone is applied. GAY DAMsoN. SINGING TO CONVICTS. - YOUNG WOMEN WHO DEVOTE THEIR TALENTS TO CHARITY. Mary and Lisnle Doraeman'. Helpful t Work in Brooklyn's Prisons-lnbterest B Ing Details of Their Experleene Among the Outaents of Soelety. There are two young women in Brook. I lyn who have laid out for themselves a - most unusual line of duty, and who have so modestly and quietly pursued it that this is probably the first time their names have ever come before the public. I These noble young women are the Misses Mary and Lizzie Borneman, who have consecrated their lives to work among prisoners and the very poor of the city. They were born in the old part of the city lying beyond Willough by street and Adams, and in that vicin ity their lives have been spent. For the last five years they have lived with their parents and sisters at 811 Jay street, and are very domestic, indusvti, ",s girls, car. ing for their younger sistern sad siding their mother in a goou old tashioned way so seldom in vogue now. Of all the family they wa,' alone are endowed with the gift of song, Mary having a strong, cinar soprano and Liz zie a contralto of wonderful strength and beauty. To them the gift seemed to be divinely given, and they decided even while children that it must be used for some good end, some purpose. For a time they sang in churches, re ceiving large jsalasries for their services, but this seemed a selfish use of their beautiful voices, and even against the wishes of their parents they began on Easter Sunday, ten years ago, to sing in Raymond Street jail at Chaplain Bass' morning services, and from that time their talents have been devoted entirely to this work. Every Sunday morning at io oclock they are admitted to the corridor of the jail, and every Tuesday evening, and no prisonet' who has been locked within those walls during the past ten years but has been comforted by the sound of their voices. Once in the month always, sometimes twice, they sing in the Kings County peniten tiary in the afternoon, and since the In dustrial home has been started they sing there Sunday ant Thursday even ings. Aside from these services they sing often in concerts given for chari table purposes. Nor are their duties entirely confined to singing. Often they are sent for by souse poor prisoner-, and never a call I comes in vain. At any time they are ready to go with words of comfort or little gifts of some kind to the darkest I cell, to the most desperate prisoner. I Next to Rev. Mr. Bass himself, these I two young women are best known and I best beloved of any persons in Brooklyn r by the outtasts of society. "Not a few times," said Miss Lizzie to t a reporter, "have we acted as brides- I maids in the jail and penitentiary, and a have signed our names as witnesses to the marriage contracts. Quite as often, c too, have we stood as godmothers to e poor little prison born tabes, We are I often sent for to sit beside the sick prig. e oners, and have seen deaths, too, within t the prison walls." --nave you ever known many of the fanu us crinduals here?" "Oh, yes. The saddest duty we ever had to perform in our lives has been to visit some of the condemned men in Raymond Street jail. I shall never for get the morning Mills was hanged. He was convicted of wife murder, and be fore his death was converted to Chris tianity through Mr. Bass' efforts. He often wanted us to sing for him, and to the last we went. The little organ was placed just outside his cell door, and there we would sing and Mr. Bass would talk to him. It seemed always to cheer him until the day before the execution, when, while we were there, the clothes he was to wear, even to the slippers and hose, were brought to him, and then he seemed stunned and was like one turned to stone. He seemed then to fully realize his position, and from that moment lost all of his cheerfulness. It was his wish that we come again in the morning, and at course we went and sang as long as we were permitted to stay." "Were you with any others at such a time?" "Yes, we were with Jefferson before that. "We were afraid to go near McElvaine's cell. He was so coarse and brutal that Iris language was not lit for us to hear. le is the only prisoner we have met who sasqnot behaved like a gentleman In our presence. When we were visiting Mills, avery day Kramer, the burglar, occu pied an adjoining cell and used to hang " blanket up to his door that he might ant see nu, and we were very careful lever to look toward his cell. One day, towever, Mills told us that Kramer 'anted to speak to us, and we noticed hen that there was no screen at the bars if his cell. He asked us to sing some avorite hymn of his, and from that time seemed very friendly. He afterward was entenced to two years and a half In the )enitentiary, and while there sent for us o come to see him. He was a desperate nan, antd had broken out of every prison n which he had ever been confined and tad won for himself the sobriquet of Bolts and Bars.'"

He Never Lost a Book. I once heard of a fine old bibliophile who had the price put inside all his vol. imes. When asked to lend one he would look inside it and say: "Yes, sith great pleasure. I see the price is hirty shillings, which will be refunded when the volume is returned." He ar ned that if the book were really required he money would be cheerfully paid; nt he found these occasions were few ad far between, and, what is more, he ever lost any of his books or had them eturned in a dilapidated condition.
