Dovener Renominated by the
Republicans PRETTY HOT TIME In the Convention in the Tyler Delegation. Who Were on the Committee* From Our Comity? Tyler Connty Dele ffrtteN Contest. Erom Friday's Daily The republicans of this district held their convention yesterday in Wheeling and as announced in yes terday's Review, Captain Djvenor was re-nominated by acclamation, Campbell and Meighen having withdrawn from the contest. From the delegates from this county, Harry VV. Smith was the county's committee on resolutions; O. W. O. H-irdman committeeman on credentials; Dr. E. B. Conoway on rules and orders of business; W. A. Beagle on Basis of Representa tion; Congresaional committee, O. W. O. Haidman and on Permanent organiz ition G. W. Weekly. THE CONTEST. Then all was lovely -after these committees had been appointed un til the contest from Tyler came up before the convention, which was settled as follows: Chairman Snyder, of the commit tee on credentials, reported on the trouble in the Tyler county delega tion, and he took the stage to en lighten the convention on the puz zle. Delegate Burchinal, of Marshall, and Mr. Moore, of Tyler, question ed the chairman as to the proper mode of procedure in deciding the the contest. At this juncture, Chir man Curtin stated that the commit tee on credentials had recommend ed that all the Tyler county rep resentatives, which work in the sev.-n from Lincoln district, who were turned down by the county convention, be admitted as dele gates. Delegate O. W. O. Hardman, the Tyler county stalwart, was given permission to say a lew words. He was opposed to the admission of the Lincoln district men, because the Tyler county convention had declared otherwise. This conven tion was overwhelmingly for Camp bell, and the seven delegates were for Dovernor, but Mr. Hardman had no personal feelings in the matter. He and all knew that Mr. Dovener would be the nominee, but he asked that in fairness the Tyler county convention be upheld. Mr. Hardman made a vigorous speech. The other side? that of Lincoln district ? was presented by another eloquent Tyler man, Mr. F. L Blackmarr. He told how t^e Lin coln district republicans, sixty three in number, had met in a jury room at Middlebourne. The vote stood 33 for Dovener, 30 for Camp bell for the seven delegates. Then the Campbell men agreed to take three delegates and give Dovener four, but the Dovener men refused. Then the Campbell men seceded, and retreated to the county conven tion, which was strongly Campbell and adopted the minority report, choosing Campbell delegates for Lincoln district, thus upholding thirty delegates against thirty three for another man. Mr. Black marr said the seven Lincoln Dove ner men were the only representa tives of the district. He told how the committee on credentials, Chairman Snyder, had recommend ed by a vote of five to two, that all the Tyler representatives be ad mitted. Mr. Hardman then took the floor and asked the convention to stand by the Tyler county dele gatts, for by seating uncertified delegates, First district republicans would be making a bad precedent. The vote was then taken on the committee's report, which recom mended that the Lincoln district men be seated. The committee's recommendation was adopted, but there were many nays. As soon as the vote was announced, Mr. Hard man and most of the seventeen Tyler county men withdrew from the hall. The seven men from Lincoln district filed into the Tyler county quarter. Before voting on the report of the Committee on basis of representa tion, Chairman Curtain's "attention was called to the fact that he had not noticed calls for a division be fore the vote on the report of the committee on credentials was an nounced. It was then decided to vjte by counties on the matter of seating the contesting delegates from Tyler. In answer to the mo tion proposed by Mr. Brady, of Ohio, Mr. Blackmarr announced that the seven Dovener men did not want to vote. This announce ment was cheered. , Captain C. J. Rawling, of Ohio, chairman, presented] the report of the committee on resolutions, which was adopted as a whole. The resolutions were as follows: First ? We, the representatives of the republican party of the First congressional district, in conven tion assembled at Wheeling, this 14th day of July, 1898, endorse the principles as declared at St. Louis June 17, 1896, which were sub mitted to the will of the people, en dorsed by them at the polls and enacted into law by the repub lican party, and, prosperity having followed, the republican party just ly clains to have redeemed its pledge to the country. Second--We favor the policy of protection and reciprocity; the in crease of our merchantile marine; the extension of our commerce and the strengthening of our defense on land and sea, to the end that our country may occupy a position among the nations of the world commensurate with its resources, population and p:>wer. Third? We endose the action of Congress in the annexation of the Hawaiian Islands, which is the consummation of the policy of gaining avantage point in the mid dle of the Pacific that has been ad vocated by American statesmen for many years. Fourth ?We endorse the republi can state administration, and in the highest manner commend the administration of President Mc Kinley, his patriotism and human ity in a grav-e crisis prominent, and a wise leadership ever present, and acknowledged by all parties, as was evidenced by putting in his hands the unprecedented sum of $50,000, 000 at one time. Fifth ? We cordially approve the course of the administration in its dealings with the Spanish govern ment, through which we have learned that the Spanish of four centuries ago, is the Spanish of to day; that the treatment of our peo ple and government by that nation and government for the past hun dred years; the cruelty and oppres sion of its colonists could lead to but one result? war ? with a people possessed of justice and humanity; and we reioice with the President that the whole American people are united tn sustaining and sup porting him, and we congratulate him that he presides over a united people without sectional feeling. Six^h ? We fully endorse the ac tion of Congress in providing for a vigorous prosecution of the war, and commend its patriotic and wise course in raising the necessary funds by popular loan, thus afford ing people of moderate means an opportunity to invest in the secu rities of the government, as con trasted wi*"h the democratic way of enriching syndicates at the expense of the people. Seventh ? We ex- end our con gratulations to the patriotic young men of our state who so promptly responded to the call of the Presi dent for service in the army and navy, assuring them that the blessings of a united people accom pany them, and the powerful hand of a government in full accord is extended to them. E'ghth ? We extend greeting to the officers and the men under their command, both on land and sea, who have written in deeds of dar ing a page of history that will add to the name and fame of the Amer ican sailors and soldiers, and in creased luster to our starry banner all the world over. Ninth ? We heartily endorse the course of Senator Elkins and Congressman B. B. Dovener, and congratulate them 011 their suc cessful efforts in securing much needed appropriations for our water ways, and we earnestly approve of their course in upholding the policy of the President. Tenth ? We commend the action of Congress in requiring an educa tional test lor the admission of im migrants to this country, and favor a turther legislation in this direc tion until an undesirable immigra tion shall cea?e. Eleventh ? We condemn the ex tension of the civil service law by the last Democratic administra tion as inimical to the best interests of the public service, unjust to bet ter qualified competitors for place, fostering on the departments un worthy men, and making the law so far reaching that its application is beyond its original purpose and intent, and we demand that Con gress make such changes in the present law as will meet the crying demands of the people.

They are very indignant over the manner in which they were treated and open ly vow they will not support the nominee at the polls this fall. Harry Smith, senior editor of the Tyler county Star, was in the city this morning on his way home from the convention and stated that the Campbell supporters could not sup port Capt. Dovenor. He declared , that the nominee would lose at least 600 voters in Tyler county. The Campbell men were, he sa'.d, modest in their demands, but their voice was not heard and they were accorded 110 privileges whatever. Continuing, he said, we were not hostile to Dovener, but simply wanted to cast a 'complimentary; vote for Judge Campbell, and then ; we would have vottd solidly for Dovener. When they refused to accede us any rights we simply withdrew and allowed them toman age the convention to suit them-; selves. ?" The Dovener faction have since made overtures to us, but we have declined to make any concessions whatever. Mr. Smith did not say in so many words that the delegates and their followers would bolt their party, but from his remarks they are de termined to defeat the nominee of the convention yesterday at any cost. At any rate the animosity of the party factions has been thoroughly aroused and a bitter fight is evi dently on. Oliver and his follow ers are very sore over their defeat and are determined to retaliate. The Sultan mid Our Mlssf?iiurl? s.

As a bright con trast to his obstinacy and stupidity, the people of America are acknow ledging far and wide the benefi cence of the mission of Hostetter's Stomache Bitters, namely, to rel ieve and prevent malaria, rheuma tism and kidney complaint, chronic dyspepsia, coustipatiou and liver trouble. The nervous, the weak and the infirm derive unspeakable benefit from its use, and it greatly mitigates those infirmities specially incident to advancing years. Sleep appetite, and a sensation of com fort throughout the system, ensue upon its use, which should be reg ular and persistant. An early re sort to this fine preventive is logic al suggested to those who seek its aid.

Santiago, Cuba, July 12 ? Via Charleston, S. C., July 12. ? Through Lieutenant of Marines, Thomas S. Borden, who conversed in French with the prisoner, an in terview was obtained for tht As sociated Press with Captain Eulate, of the Spanish armored cruiser Vizcaya. He said: "The entire squidron was order ed to devote the fire of their guns to the * cruiser Brook lyn, because it was believid that she was the only ship in the American squadron that could overtake us. When we got out of 'he harbor my ship was second in line, and I saw immediately that ihe flagship Maria Teresa was get ting a terrible baptism of fire. It was frightful. The Texas and the Brooklyn were just riddling her and in filteen minutes I saw she was on fire. The Iowa and Oregon were fir ing on the Oquendo, and as yet I had not been badly hit. The Brooklyn was a half mile closer to us than any other ship and I de termined to try and ram her so that the Colon and Oquendi could get away and I started for her. She was a good mark with her big broadside and as I started I thought surely I would get her, but she had evidently seen us and very quickly she turned about and making a cir cle, came at our port side by that I thought she would ram us. I moved in toward shore so that I could avoid her and then I saw that the Oqnendo had gone ashore also, her steam pipes evidently hav ing been severed by a shell. The manoeuvre of the Brooklyn was beautiful. We opened a rapid fire at her with all our big gnns but i she returned it with a terrible effect. The Oregon also hit us several times but the Brooklyn's broadside 1 crashing into our superstructure simply terrorized the men. We worked all our guns together at one time and I don't see how she escaped us. She simply drove us into shore, at one time fighting us at 1,100 yards. "One shell went along the entire deck, killing half the men on it, and wounding all the rest. A shell from the Oregon hit the super structure, and it was then that, (wounded and knowing we could not get away, I struck the fhg and started for the beach. I did not instruct the men to load the guns and do not know why they were loaded. We were on fire bad ly and when those men who were alive started to swim for shore, the Cubans on shore shot at us un til the American ships arrived and stopped them. The Brooklyn had prevented me from gettiug away, for I could have beaten the Oregon out, for I had a two mile lead of her. My orders were to try and ( sink the Brooklyn and I tried to ] carry them out. I did not think that her battery could be so terrible as it was."

Some thing over $200,000 will be paid by this government as "head money" to the officers and sailors who de stroyed Cervera's fleet. This is accoiding to the law which provides payment of $100 a head for every man on the ships ot an enemy when these ships are destroyed. A few of the officers will receive pretty good fortunes. The law governing the distribu tion of this money is very explicit. There are exact provisions for car rying it into effect, and every man, according to his rank, will be paid j in due season. The statute is as follows: "A bounty shall be paid by the United Stales for each person on board any ship or vessel of war be longing to an enemy at the com mencement of an engagement, which is sunk or otherwise de stroyed in such engagement by any ship or vessel belonging to the United States or which i' may be necessary to destroy in consequence of injury sustained in action of $100, if the enemy's vessel was in ferior force and of ?200 if of equal or superior force, to be divided in the same manner as prize money, and when the actual number ot men on board any such ves sel can not be satisfactorily as certained it shall be estimated ac cording to the complement allowed the vessels of its class in the navy of the United States; and there shall be paid as bounty to the cap tors or any vessel of war, captured from an enemy, which they may be instructed to destroy or which is immediately destroyed for the pub lic interest but not in consequence of injuries received in action, $50 for every person who shall be on board at the time of such capture." According to this law the officers and men of Sampson's fleet will be entitled to $100 for every officer and man on board the six Spanish vessels that were destroyed eff | Santiago. Rccords in the bureau of intelligence at the Navy Depart ment show the complement of offi cers and men on these ships to be $2,087. On this reckoning the govern ment will pa> to the cffi:ers and men of Simpson's fleet $208 700. The* figures in Commodore Wat son's dispatch to t*ie Navy Depart ment are slightly different but change the results only a trifle. The Tomb of <'ol milium.

The remains of the great explorer have just been removed from their former modest niche in the same cathedral, al though there is some doubt as to the authenticity of their being his real remains, as several places, per haps half a dozen altogether, claim the distinction of having Columbus' remains.
