, SPRINGFIELD, III., June 14.?The
force ? supporting John Hopkins won
"the first significant fight in the pre^
Rminary convention proceedings at
The meeting of the -committee last
night which selected Frank K. Quinn.
-of Peoria, for temporary chairman of
The convention.
Congressman Rainey, of Carrollton,
ra. Hearst man, was turned down by a
"vote of 23 to 11. This is regarded as
significant as the foreboding of what
-promises to be a bitter fight between
"The Hopkins forces and the HearstThmlap
faction. A stormy time is in
*. vis X-* K ix. i J- cue ^
-attempts to run things with a '.high
hand, and by gavel rule overturn
-what is claimed by the Hearst men to
he the will of the majority. The
Hearst faction is claiming 910 instructed
delegates to the convention. .
"This may he altered by the report of
-the minority sub-committee on credentials.
The total number of delegates
"to the convention is 1,311.
The contention in the convention
promises in a measure as stormy
scenes as were enacted by the Republican
convention in session here two
-weeks ago. The Chicago faction contrilled
by Hopkins is seated at the
-front of the hall. They are protect-edf
by a platoon of police. The dele-gates
from outside' of Cook county
wni be seated, according to arrangements
qf the State convention. The
-election of a governor as well as the
r rstate ticket depends on the outcome
of the faction that will be in control.

A BRAVE NIGHT GUARD RAISED
AN ALARM AND THE MEN
FAILED TO GET
AWAY.
COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 14.?But
Tor the bravery of Guard S. E. Ricli-.ards,
on duty at night at the Peni
Tentiary Annex,, the ten men awaiting
death in the State prison might
now be at liberty.
Shortly before 1 o'clock this morning,
led by Moses Johnson the murderers
made a desperate effort to escape.
Johnson at that hour asked to
'be let out of his cell to go to the
"toilet room. His cell is on. the second
range end. When he reached the
ground floor he further asked to go
into the front room for some soda
to settle his stomach. Guard Richards
consented and immediately on
opening the door of the front room
of the cage the prisoners in that.
- range rushed upon him and knocking
Tilm to the floor, sought to bind
r- and gag him. The guard made a.desperate
fight, however, and succeeded
in raising an alarm. He was brutally
beaten, though not dangerously
hurt, before help arrived. Ben Wade,
-with his hand on the guard's throat
hissed: "Lie still, we are going' ?o
leave and get away. You make a
^noise and we'll kill you."

THE POPULAR CIRCUS WILL BE
IN FAIRMONT JULY
SECOND.
The Gentry Bros, big dog and pony
show will exhibit in this city on July
2d. This organization has made
several visits to Fairmont, and each
year has increased in size and given
a much better performance. This
year it is among the big ones. It requires
nine railroad cars to transport
it. and carries over a hundred people.
The railroad officials here have received
itsitinerary, which gives the information
that the circus xvjll reach
here early on the morning of July
2d. The first advertising car will put
in an appearance in a few days, and
it will be then that the small boys
and girls will begin saving their pennies
to enable them to go and see
this excellent show, as they well remember
the former appearance of
this organization. The location for
the tents has not yet been decided
upon.
SEVEN SPEECHES
WILL- BE MADE IN LAUNCHING
THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION
AT CHICAGO?GOVERNOR
BLACK WILL
LEAD.
CHICAGO, June 14.?The first session
of the Republican National committee
will begin at 2 o'clock to-morrow
afternoon, when the Wisconsin
delegate contest will be taken up.
There has been some talk of giving
each of the contesting delegations half
a vote in the convention, tjutr-Ctrclrman
Scott, of the sub-committee, is
of the opinion that the plan is neither
equitable nor 'even possible. The
committee, however, hopes to effect
sojne amicable disposition of the case.
Sevep speeches are to he made in
launch(gg Mr. Roosevelt's nomination
before the convention next week.
Former Governor Black, of New York,
is scheduled to place the President in
nomination. Then will follow Senator
Eeveridge, Senator Dolliver and a
lot more like him. There is more talk,
however, among the Republican mag
nates, who are gathering in uaicago
to-day as to who will be the Vice-Presidential
nominee, and who will be
chairman of the Xational committee
than there is concerning Roosevelt.
EN TRY
SCAPE DEATH
At the same time Wade tried to
tie the guard's legs fast with a piece
of bed sheeting. While this was going
on Johnson and other prisoners
including Philip Nagle Otis, Loveland
and others, were seeking" to find
the key to the door which leads directly
from the annex into the east
yard.
It was evidently the intention of
the men to,find the key, unlock 'he
door and scale the walls by means of
ropes.r
Guards Hagar and Chambers, 011
riio east hall heard the com
motion and came running" to the annex.
With duplicate keys which they
carried to this section they quickly
sprang inside the big cage and rescued
Richards from his perilous position.
In another moment other guards
were also on the scene, and the disappointed
murderers, seing that the
attempt had failed, suffered themselves
to be locked up without resistance.
It is not known definitely
whether all the men were implicated
in the plot. It Is thought, however,
that most of them had some part in
it although , A1 Wade. Charles Stimmel,
Mike Schiller and "Dutch"
Fisher seemed not to be. especially
interested.
Harmon, Johnson, Nagle and Ben
Wade were all dressed and ready to
leave: Some of the others were par

them. None of' the prisoner } wore

DAY EXERCISES.
The Mozart Literary Society entertained
last night in a most. success- I
ful manner, notwithstanding the fact
that the speaker of the evening, Hon.
Harvey W. Harmer. of Clarksburg,
was not present. For some reason or
other Mr. Harmer did not appear,
making the program short and disappointing
to the audience. Attorney
Benjamin F. Ramage, of this city,
gave a short talk in place of Mr. Tlarmer.
and he was followed by severalother
ex-members of the society.
The program opened with the
beautiful selection, "For "all Eternity,"
pleasingly sung by Miss Wipp
linger, who has maue nersen uimo'us
here by her singing within the
past week. Miss Wipplinger certainly
understands music and has
completely mastered her voice. The
accompaniment was played by Miss
Flo Clayton, who is recognized as
one of the leading pianists in our
city.
"The Honor of the Woods" was
read by Miss Alta Smith, followed by
Miss Pansee Ramage in "O Yeh-us."
Each of these young ladies has won
a reputation as a reader, and the audience
was very much pleased with
their work last night.
Miss Wipplinger then sang again,
this time in German. This was well

stood. As an encore she played a piano
solo, proving, herself a master of
Instrumental as well as . vocal, music.

the library. The "receiving line was
composer! of ex-members ami a few
present members of the society. A
social hour was spent during which
many ol'l school friends met each
other again, _ and many pleasant
events were recalled to memory.
Delightful refreshments, consistj
ing of Ice cream and cake were
served, and at tjie table the class
color, a pretty bow of blue ribbon,
was pinned on each guest.
The program and reception was
free for any who desired to attend,
and a .large number partook of the
hospitality of the Jlozarters. All i
have words of praise for the pleasant j
way in which the time was spent .and |
if anyone did not enjoy himself*j
it was his ow;i fault.
The -Mozart JJterary Society was
founded in JS75 by some students
who did not agree with the management
of the Normal Lyceum, which
had been founded a couple of years
before. From the time of founding
the society has steadily increased
until for several years past its members
have passed the hundred mark.
The literary societies are the life
of the school and more interest is
taken in them in the Fairmont Normal
than in any other school in the I
State. Vive la societe de Mozart.
Class Day Exercises.
The usual l^rge audience did not
greet the seniors in their class day
exercises at the Normal this morning.
Many people could not get away
from their business, but the ones
who did assemble In the Auditorium
were given a treat in the -way of a
literary program. The class day program
is always looked forward to as
among the best of the commencement
exercises. The program this
morning was well rendered and de
served a much larger attendance.
The class, consisting of eight
young ladies and three gentlemen,
came in to a march by MacArthur's
orchestra. Bishop Penick gave a
short talk introductory to his prayer,
which.was followed by a | selection- :
from, the orchestra.
The. program, was then taken up.

of the class, in a short speech,
expressed the sorrow of the class in
thinking: of this their last class exercise.
The subject of Miss Mary Morgan's
oration was, "Pussy Wants a Corner."
This subject, trifling though
it may seem, was handled in a classical
way and proved that things are
not always what they seem. Miss
Morgan has been successful as* a
reader and her oration showed that
she understands that line of work.
"The Fiddle's Story" was the selection
of Miss Ethel Ice, who has appeared
before >. Fairmont audiences
several times previous. .She recites
well and always pleases her audionce.
"Th.rr* inisf-pnrp" was the ' DaDCr
read by Miss Mary A. Prickett. She
gave the history of the class, bringin};
in such jokes as added to the
real interest shown by I he audience.
Miss Harript E. Steele gave an' oration
011 the suliject "Know Thyself,"
which was quite instructive
and was well delivered.
"Music on the Rappahannock:" was
the selection read by Miss Ethel
Crim, to the soft strains of a medley
of our old melodies played by her
sisterp Miss Burhl. Miss Crim has
made great progress in her elocution
and her readings are added a
great ileal by her personal beauty.
The audience was then enlivened
by a beautiful rendition of "Dixie
Girl" by MacArthur's orchestra.
Verd Peterson mkis the class poet
and his production was no mean one.
His lines showel hard study in the
preparation thereof, and he Is to be .
commended for his efforts.
Andrew Fred Sbroyer's oration
was "An Appeal for Our Alma Mater,"
in which he recited the history
of the Fairmont Normal and made an
eloquent appeal for Its remaining at
its present location. Mr. Shroyer is
becoming recognized as an orator
and his oration was well prepared.
Miss Stella Mae Boswortli read
"Her Coming Out" in her usual pleasing
manner." Miss Bosworth graduates
in elocution to-morrow, having
completed the course as prescribed
by Jiiss -Simmons, instructor in that
"department. Miss Bosworth has.
great talent in this line and will soon
be among, our State's leading readers.
Earle W. Lawrence read the "Last
Will and Testament" which had been
prepared in a clever manner. The pa(Continued
