Mead Leads, But Not Enougn to Win. Many Unpledged Oalegatea. The returns of Tuesday's primaries In dicate that tbe matter of tbe governorship will be settled by the convention, after a sbarp struggle. Mead baa a good lead over Fleetwood of instructed delegates, but there are enovgh aa4dged votes to bold the balance safely. Few of these will go to Mead under any circumstances. The probability of a "dark orse" carry ing off the prize is very strong. Mead showed mutt strength on the west side, though bis own county is by no means solid for hiia, 85 of tbe dele gates reported being opposed to him, 1 with only 39 for him. Mead carried Ad dison, Chittenden and franklin counties strongly. Bennington gles Batcbelder about bait Its vote, and Windbam is for him strongly. Lamoille gives Fleetwood every delegate.

Very Nice Pineapples and Kew California Fruit Trunk Mystery in Italy. The discovery of ths body of Mrs. Por ter Charlton In trunk, sunk in Lake Cotno, Italy, bs revealed another myste rious crime. The woman, formerly Mrs. Neville Castle, Hivorced, bad bat lately married Charlton. They bad taken a villa at Lake Como. Tbe woman bad evident ly been killed in ber btd. She was ren dered insensible by heavy blows on thu bead, but was alive when plaoed in the trunk. Charlton bas disappeared, leav ing no trace. Either she was killed by the husband through Jealousy, or met death at the band of aoine other man, in bicb case Charlton was probably killed also. All parties are Americans. Peary Sued for Fure Taken. Commander R. E. Peary, discoverer of the North Pole, baa been sued by Ru dolph Francke for flO.OOO damages. Francke, who was with Dr. Cook just he fore tbe letter's alleged dash for the Pole, claims that tbe large store of furs and teeth that be bad secured was taken from bim by Peary as the price of bringing bim bark home, when be was sick. Some of tbe specimens have been given by Peary to Roosevelt. Higher Uppore Coma to Grief. As tbe result of the trial of tbe sugar fraud oases at Sew York, and due largely to tbe testimony of Spitxer, the pardoned employe, conviction was secured on one count against Charles B. Heike, secretary of the trust, Ernest K. Gerbracbt, former superintendent, w bile the Jury disagreed in tbe case of James F. Bendernagel, former cashier. Appeal was taken. Tbe penalty is imprisonment and heavy fine. Found Their Own Flag Floating. The party of explorers who reached the summit of Mount McKinley in Alaska some time ago, and were unable to find there any trace of Dr. Cook's ascent, have reached the coast. They ascended tbe mountain a second time and found the American flag placed there still riving. They have left provisions along the route to supply other parties, as well as to prove their report. Says Lea Was of Good Standing. Ex-Confederates raised a monument to their dead at the site of tbe old Federal prison at Sandusky, O., last week. Gen eral Gordon, speaking at its dedication, said, "If Lee was a traitor, tnen jonn Hampden was a traitor, Oliver Cromwell was a traitor, George Washington was a traitor." Insurgency Waning, Saya Sherman. Vice President Sherman, on his return from the West, saya he finds Republican insurgency waning in the states where it bas been most active. Wisconsin is strongly regular, while in Iowa and the Dakota the regulare are more than hold ing their own, as last week'e primaries show. following table, printed in yesterday's Free Press, shows that Mead will require 86 votes more tbsn be bas to win. If he gets practically all tbe unreported ton ns, which is not likely, he can barely pull through. Fleetwood would require all the Batcbelder and unpledged delegates, and a dozen Iron) tbe missing towns to win.

Ran-1 dolph lost the toss-up and bad to go to bat first. Rowell started the scoring for Randolph in the first inning, by making a two-base bit after two men were out, then stealing third, and continuing borne wben Ferrin threw wide to shut him off at third. Randolph made three more in tbe fourth and four in tbe fifth on bits, fortunately combined with Rochester's two other errors, two bases on balls, and a wild pitch. Rochester's runs were tbe results of errors and a wild pitch, Gaj being directly responsible for two of these runs, and Salisbury shouldering the other. Rochester was completely at Gay's mercy as far as bitting went, and their total was three scattered singles. Dean pitched a fairly good game for Rochester, and, if bis team mates bad been able to connect with Gay's shoots, the result might have been closer.

On tbe farms fields of corn, squash, etc, were washed out as well as tbe - roads in several places. ilftilstones tbe size of small marbles fell in quantities and w ith considerable force but did not break a aingle light of glass at the Totman greenhouses. The storra did not extend to Bethel, Braintree or Rochester and was a mild rain even at the Center, s.ithst it was evidently designed as a sjecial plague for this little Kgypt. Tbe Randclph bakery came near being carried down tbe hank on which it staoda and a hole from 10 to 15 feet deep waa gullied oitt under I be foundation so that the building has already settled a little. The basement waa flooded and four bar rels of Hour were more or less wet. I be water flowed in a torrent past the north end of the Stockwell llock and soaked out the cod flsb and salmon in tbe ba-wment of the Jerd market. The H-h Hill road from the Moulton Stock farm is in pasaMe in pUces and tbe crops on the hill are nearly spoiled. F. B. Thomas estimates the damage on his farm at (1000. The soil waa washed off from plowed fields until only a surfsce of stones is left, and tbe road ia in antb a condition tbat a team cannot gc over it. Above and below the D. H.
