QUIET
IS EVERYTHING AT 'HANGING
ROCK?ARRIVAL OF SOLDIERS
HAD jGOOD EFFECT.
HANGING ROCK, Ohiq, June 2 ?
Martial law is in full force here, and
wiH prevail until the last soldier
leaves the village.
The arrival of soldiers had a good
effect-on the situation, and there has
been no outbreak since. Pickets are
on duty, and last night persons were
not permitted to walk on the-, two
streets of the village. Sheriff Payne
is of the opinion that he may be able
to ask the governor, possibly to-day, to
recall two companies of the troops.
He will probably advise that the two
companies be held "here for several
days.
TO RELEASE
DELEGATES
FROM PLEDGES IS THE RESOLUTION
PROPOSED IN ILLINOIS
CONVENTION?MAY SOLVE
THE PROBLEM.
SPRINGFIELD, III., June 2.?Another
day of expectancy in fhe Itepublican
dead-lock is on. The resolution
to release the delegates from
pledges and instructions will be
adopted this morning. The committee
favors the resolution. The convention
will undoubtedly pass it.
Yates and Deneen have it and at this
hour they are said to be almost con
verted.
Speaker J. G. Cannon, in an interview
said that he looks for a noni
fnatlon to-day. "The release of the
delegates" lie said "will allow them
to vote for a second choice, and if
that fails, to nominate, then for a
third or fourth. If no success is then
had it can go to the great body-of people
of the State and make a selection.
The sjieaker was presented with a
large bunch of flowers just before the
convention met by Mrs. Mary T. Hager,
of the ladies of the G A. R., Chicago.
The convention was called to order
a-t 10:20 o'clock. Walter Reeves,
chairman of the resolution committee,
reported from that committee a substitute
for the resolution referred
yesterday. The substitute was similar
to the original and after reciting
the loyalty of the delegates through
CG roll-calls releases them from all instructions
and obligations and orders
that they be allowed to vote free. The
recommendation that the resolution
pass was unanimous from the committee
A >
The different candidates then expressed
their willingness to release
their delegate's.
Chairman; Cannon then asked for
five minutes, saying that he had received
one vote for Governor and
Mr. Reeves said that lie would be glad
to yield 15 minutes. He said no gfeat
measure had ever been effected without
compromise. He said it was not
a question of one to be nominated but
when. He was willing to take service
under the leadership of any of a hundred
who could be drafted into running
for Governor.
'dominate any of these men," he
said, " but nominate one of them and
do it to-day!"
After Cannon's talk the vote was
taken, not one dissenting vote being
heard in opposition to the adoption
of the resolution. The roll call on
the G7th ballot was then ordered, ii
resulted: Yates, 471; Lowden, 408:
Deneen, 3SG; Hamlin, IIS: Sherman,
53; Warner, 39; Pierce, 2G.
The GStli ballot resulted: Yates, .

FARMERS' INSTITUTE
AN INTERESTING MEETING OF
GRANGERS AT METZ, THURSDAY,
MAY 26.
Editors West Virginian:
The farmers" institute held at this
place last inursaay, may ioui, wus
welliattended. The meeting wassailed
to order by Prof. Atkeson, of the
West Virginia University, who briefly
outlined the object of the institute,
after which a temporary organization
was effected by electing Z. Tennant
and George S. Condit president aril
secretary, respectively.
The program was well prepared and
the talks given by Professors Atkeson
and Johnson and Messrs. Manley and
Taylor were of unusual interest.
A permanent organization was completed
by electing the fallowing off!
cers to serve for the ensuing year:
President, R. B. Ash.
Vice-President, Albert Rowand.
Secretary, B. F. V/ilson.
At. the close of the institute the
visiting Grangers were met by the
members of Marion Grange No. 12
and given an enjoyable hayride to
Flat run, where they attended the
meeting of the District Grange, and
witnessed the conferring of the 5tli
degree 'on sixteen candidates.
An important business meeting of
the District Grange was held on Fri day,
the 27th, at which meeting the
secretary of the Grange Mutual Fire
Insurance Company reported that
$150,000.00 worth of paid up policies
have been issued. This company is
incorporated under the laws of West
Virginia and is in a solid financial con-1
uition, and is under the jurisdiction
of this District Grange.
Committee.

LAW S|HESHES
ARE BEING SLOWLY DRAWN
AROUND THE NOTORIOUS NEGRESS,
HANNAH ELIAS,
THE ALLEGED BLACKMAILER.
NEW- YORK, June 2.?The meshes
of the law are being slow! drawn
about Hannah Ellas, the notorious negress,
accused by. John R. Piatt, the
asrorl millionaire of having blacl;
mailed him out of $70t),000. Deputy
Sheriff Walgernig, with his assistants,
armed with a civil, warrant for
the arrest of the Eiias woman issued
by Justice Dugro, of the Supremo
Court, is holding the Eiias house at
23G Central Park West, in a state of
siege to-day. Detectives are posted
in every corner. Mrs. Eiias is endeavoring
to raise $20,000 which will
be required to keep her out of Ludlow
street jail. If she is unable to
raise such a sum she will continue to
defy the court and remain in her
home where she can evade arrest, as
a civil warrant does not give authority
to break down doors and make
arrests by force.
Washington Braunes, counsel for
Mrs. Eiias, says that his client will
have the money necessary for her
bail bond and that she'will be spared
the indignity of arrest.
It is thought that the Eiias woman
will have some difficulty in raising
the $20,000 as all her bank accounts
and her real estate are now in the
hands of the court and will remain
there until the 'suit against her has
been tried and decided.
FORMER FA I RMONTER J
COMPOSES A COMIC OKEKfi.
Mr. L. L. La Zelle, of the Chickering
house here and Mr. Donn P. Crane
have just completed a light opera in
two acts that is said to b.e exceptionally
good. Mr. La Zelle composed the
music and the few who have been la
vored with a sight of the score say it
is filled with tuneful and well-written
airs and choruses that have the necessary
"swing" to insure success.
The scene of the opera is Holland
in the ICth century and the book is
brightly written. There is a, fine opportunity
for costuming and scenic
effect. 1
A prominent manager has the book
under consideration with a view of
producing the work this fall.
We take the above item from the
Chicago Musical Times.; Mr. La
Zelle's many Fairmont friends, who
are acquainted with his musical genius
will be glad to learn that he has
composed the music for a comic opera,
and trust that they will have the
pleasure of hearing it produced at
the local theatre in the near future.
Y0X1 will find a complete line of
base ball goods and bicycle repairs
at J. L. Hall's Hardware Store. ' x
THE BUSINESS MAN,
As well as all other level headed men,
realizes the importance of insuring
against loss by fare. But we want to
address our remarks to those who are
not fully aware of the advantages of
FIRE INSURANCE.
To such men we will be glad to give
information of interest. We guarantee
not to bore them by urging them
to Insure. We simply wish to show
the advantages of carrying insurance.
Drop us a card, and our representative
will call.
