WILL HELP THE HELPLESS Lawyer Blair Lee Says It Would Be the .Muhi Marked Advance of Mod ern Times Com m lssionersltossand Powell Highly Commend It All Classes Agree as to Its Merits. The principal topic in legal circles yes terday was The Times Bureau of Legal Advice. Everyone who has had any ex perience in the practical workings of the law knows how badly such an institution is needed. Almost all of those who are members of or are connected with the District bar had the new enterprise in tbctr thoughts and on their lips yesterday and every one, from the "leading lights or the profession to the humblest lawyer's clerk, had a word of praise to utter, and took the opportunity to state what a void the bureau would fill. The interest taken In the affair was not confined to the lawyers, but preachers, professors, mchants, manufacturers, and mechanics of the city were unanimous in declaring the bureau of legal advice a most commendable institution. MAJOR POWELL WISHES SUCCESS. Commissioner Powell said to a Times reporter that he had read with a great deal of interest an account of the establish ment of the bureau of legal advice and he Epokcatsoine length onthegreat possibilities for doing good and for correcting evils which it would afford. Among other things he said: "That scheme is first rate, a most worthy charity. It has been needed in this city for some time. In my experience I have seen many instances where such an institution would have been of sen-ice to oppressed families. You must have skillful, well educated lawyers if you want to be suc cessful, for almost as many cases are lost through the incompetency of attorneys as through the failure to secure any legal ad viser. I wish you the success you deserve." Commissioner Ross: "There can be no doubt that many poor people are not able to pay Tor legal advice and it is, indeed, a commendable charity that gives them this." Blair Lee, lawyer: "If you found and maintain any system by which Ignorant and poor people can be protected in their rights, you will have made one of the most marked advances of modern times. I sincerely hope that you will succeed." WILL HELP THE HELPLESS. Tallin adge A. Lambert, lawyer: "A very humanitarian and praise-worthy scheme for the benefit of the people. It will help those who might otherwise lose their rights." Conrad. II. Symc, lawyer: "I think that this movement which aims to protect -the rights and to redress the wrongs of the defenseless and powerless should re ceive the support and encouragement of all who believe in equal and exact justice to ex'eryone irrespective.of.race, color, or con dition." Bnshrod Robinson, member of the firm of llobinson, Chery & Company: "I think it a splendid institution and I feel that It will be the means of protecting many worthy people. I heartily approve of it." S. W. Woodward, member of the firm of Woodward & Lotbrop: "It is vwy pro gressive and ought to be successful. It will prove a great boon to the poor people. I hope that a sufficient meritorious case will be soon secured so that the bureau may obtain a standing right away." WORTHY OF ALL PRAISE. Rev. Randolph H. MrjKim: "The bureau of legal advice is worthy of all the praise that can be showered upon it. I have no doubt that it will rescue many a poor person from the clutches of schemers and rascals." William G. Johnson, lawyer "A most gracious charity that will be the means of untold good." J. Walter Cooksey, lawyer: "I see every day instances in which such a bureau would be a great benefit. It is not only useful, but almost a necessity. I read the account of the establishment xrith a great deal of satisfaction." Franklin H. Mackey, lawyer "A good thing. Don't confine yourself to civil suits, but also includo the criminal cases. I would like to see the poor wretches in the police court have an attorney. They need one and many are unable to pay. I am sure many a man, found guilty in the police court could have proved his innocence if he had l)een able to get a lawyer to conduct his case." Get your Cabinet Photo Free.

"Sound Money" Men Victorious in All of the Committees. Louisville, Ky., June 26. The Democratic State convention of Kentucky haseertainly indorsed tho administration with siveeial tributes to President Cleveland, "and his distinguistiedco-adviserand Secretary, John G. Carlisle." No outing was ever productive of more effective results than that of Secretary Carlisle to Kentucky aud the Memphis con ventions. The silrcrites, iucluding Sena tor Blackburn, attribute their defeat to the recent speeches of Cur.isleaiid the circula tion that was given them. Tlie free coinage men do not deny that they expected to control the convention and all Its committees, platform and nom inations. They fought gamely to a finish and acknowledge theirdefeat although they make charges about the wayit was done. BEATEN IN DSTRIGTS. The free-silver men were beaten yes terday in the district meetings that se lected members of the various committees in the selection of Judge W. M. Beckner for temporary chairman and Congressman A. S. Berry for permanent chairman, and in the organization of the committee on resolutions, as well as in the organi zation of other committees. To-day they went down under the adop tion of the minority report of credentials, seating Clay's; "sound money" delegates, as well as under the adoption of the majority report on resolutions for sound money and the indorsement of President Cleveland and Secretary Carlisle. The committee on credentials is one that "tho sound money" did not look after, and the silver men had a majonty on it, but the convention overruled that majority by adopt in"- the minority re port. Senator Blackburn and other silver lead ers remained on the floor of the convention and fought to the last on the resolutions after which they, did not take much in terest in those who, as they said, had previously deserted them. They were very bitter towards Auditor of State Norman, who w as General Hardin's man ager and himself a candidate for re nomination. In Senator Blackburn's speech against the majority report on resolutions he showed his feelirg toward some on whom he had depended while he referred very respectfully to Senator Lindsay, Congress man McCrcary and others who had op posed him openly. The convention wis a record-breaker in great speeches as well as iu otiier respects. To-night Senator Blackburn made the following statement: "I do Eut feci sore, nor have I any heart-burnings. I realize, however, that it is impossible to win a fight against a combination of money and Federal patronage. HARDIN NOMINATED.

Lockhart for the nomination for Governor, and seconded by Isaac M. Quigley. J. It. Breckinridge, tlie eloquent brother of W. C. P. Breckinridge, presented the name of P. Wat Hardin, seconded by James Tarvin and I. A. Spalding. Previous to tlie convention reassembling the hall was flooded with a dodgerurgiugthe nomination of cither K. L. Black, W. J. Stone, or A. S. Berry, which was denounced in the nomi nating speeches and was regarded a3 aimed at Hardin, after the adoptiou of an administration platform. There being only two candidates a nomination was expected on the first bal lot, which was watched with such close attention as to command perfect order. There was 878 votes; necessary to nominate, 440. As the ballot proceeded several counties cast scattering votes for W. J. Stne. and the three mountaineers from Lee county voted for Htnry Watterson. Rock Castle county voted solidly for Gen. Buckticr, but no dark horses could stampede the well lined up forces of nardin and Clay. When the counties were all called It was evident that Gen. Hardin was nominated and the Hardin men cheered as the last counties responded with "more for Har din." Before the result of the ballot was an nounced the Clay men moved that the nomination or Gen. Hardin be made unani mous and it ca rried with a great hurrah. The result or the ballot was announced as follows: Hardin. 4G8 1-2; Clay, 330 1-2; Stone, 76; Watterson, :i: For Lieutenant-Governor, R.

June 2G. The moetserious newr of Spanish disasters received sjince th outbreak of the- rebellion reached here thit afternoon. The garrisons of two towns have surrenr dered. and the places themselves have bee4 burned by Maximo Gonn-2. Firing wa4 heard constantly around Puerto Principe lastiiight.andextraordiimryprrcautionsar being taken to protect that cily. Owing to the restrictions placed by thS government upon the transmission of tele graphic news conc-rnlng the insurrection, only the most meager details of the dis asters t Uk Spanish armies are obtainable. It appears certain, however, that tha garrison at El Mtlato, m the province o Puerto Principle, and capitalortheprovinee, has surrendered to Maximo Gomez. IT WAS A PEACE1-UL VICTORY. Tlie garrison consisted of a boot tweaty five Spanish ioldiers uix'er Lieut. Romero, aud they were qeartrred in a peato house, fortified with palisades and piereed with loopholes for rifle?. The p!ace was aisa provi.sioiwd and contained a coBSitferaWo stock of ammunition. During the unexplained abeence of Lieut. Romero the fort was surrounded by abous 1,000 insurgents under the command ef Maximo Gomez. The latter sent a mes senger to the garrison of EI Mutato a bhu Be ing that he gave the soldiers fifteen nrin uetes in which to surrender with tfce alter native of Leing fired upon by the full In surgent force if they related to do to. It is said that the soldier.- were wfiHng to fight, and werv preparing to do so, when Lieut. Romero arrived as the fon. aitd Ms presence being made known to -Maximo Gomez, the latter sent him a seeesd note saying Xih- msuigritts had so desire to shed blood uiHieccssarily. and, therefore, he lieutenant was given five mtoaies more In which to surrender the fort to the insur gents. Thereupon the lieutenant surrendered the garrison against the desire of ate soldiers, who were indignant at being compelled to capitulate without firing a shot. When the garrison was In the hands of the insurgents Maximo Gomez ordered the village of El Mulato to be burned, and after depriving Lirut. Romero of bis arms, set him at liberty. PUERTO PRINCIPE BLOCKADED. The lieutenant was afterward xes5tetl by the authorities of Puerto Principe, and it is thought probable that he will be promptly tried by court-martial and. shot, like iieut, G allege, who ceniandedt a garrison which was surprised to a Similar manner while the heatewfiMi in command was away. In addition, the town of Ska Geseaime, Situated about fifteen kilometers south west of EI Mulato, has met tba same fate as the latter place. It was attacked by the Insurgents ttMiet Maximo Gomez, aud was burned to the ground after its garrison of aboet fitly men bad surrendered. In this case, how ever, it is stated that tte soMiers sa cteded in burying a great part of their stores of ainroenition before the tert wa of San Geronimo was captured by the enemy. Advices which have reached here frera, Puerto Principe would seeni to indicate tbae th1 city referred to is invested b the in surgents.
