Con. Grosvenor's Latest Figures.
Washington, March 30. Representa
tive Grosyenor of Ohio last night gave
out his weekly statement of McKinloy's
strength. This is tho yoto by States,
according to Grosvenor's latest calcula

"I have taken great pains in this
.matter," said Gen. Grosvenor. "Tho
extraordinary table that was sent out
from Washington Saturday for the en--couragement
of the friends of another
candidate, suggested to me tho propri

rADEKElVSKl'S DAILY 1ATE.
JIow tho Great I'lnnlst Keeps In 1'erfect
Condition for Ills Work.
Faderewski rises, as a rule, about
ten o'clock on days when he does not
give a concert or is traveling, writes
John J. a' Becket in an article upon
tho great pianist's daily life in March
Tadies' Home Journal. On days when
.ho is to play in the ovenihg ho rises at
one. I!y way of morning meal he takes
a enp of coffee or tea nothing else,
:not eyen a roll or morsel of bread. lie
practices usually for five or six hours
-each day on a piano which he has sent
to his room in the hotel as soon as ho
arrives in a city. When ho has an
afternoon concert he does not practice
at all, however, and if the concert is
an oyening one he devotes only two or
three hours to exercising on the key
board. In order to strengthen his
dingers he plays only five-finger exer
cises. Like a prize-fighter who is in
training this musical athlete dovotes
"himself to a systematic course of gym
nastics for strengthening all of tho
physical powers which are called into
play by his performances at tho piano.
Those long, slender, "piano" fingers
are put through their paces until they
acquire strength, flexibility, agility
and staying power. His magnificent
technique is not maintained without
bis constant fostering and lubricating
of its springs. This little band of five
faithful servants which each hand
commands is in tenure to a wrist like
steel. But his arms also have to be
strengthened. For this purpose ho
employs an apparatus which he de
signed and had made himself. What
this is ho knows, and nobody else.
Pretty soon tho voice of the bicycle
man will be lifted up in the clamor for
good roads. To the extent which the
-voice is heard, tho bicycle is a public
benefactor. It would hardly be too
much to say that the bicycle man in
this one respect is worth nearly as
much to the country as any other class
of people. Tor he is emphatic in his
persistence, and he is big for his size.
Ho knows what ho must have to make
his enjoyment of his bicycle a success,
and ho knows that what he wants is
tho thing that the whole country needs
as much as ho does, although other
people aro not aware oi it. llo has the
advantage of youth and vigor, for it is
young men who take to the bicycle,
and with that energy of active life, lie
carries on aggressive warfare for what
he wants. The bicycle man is after

It took but ono ballot to do it, but it
was dono most effectually.
Tho supporters of Mr. Davis lnado a
gallant fight, but they went down be

tho latter's popularity and tho splondid
organization of his forces throughout
tho district. But there will bo no
kickers, no animosities, no knives, vis

Washington county got the worst of
it, but sho will zealously stand by tho

of November will present Mr. "Van

than any other county in tho district.
As stated in tho Leader Tuesday, tho
battlo was on Monday night, with
Guernsey the keystone of the situa
tion. It was known that Taylor had
lost in many precincts of his own
county, but tho exact extent of tho in
roads made could not be ascertained.
Could 23 votes from Puernsey havo
been delivered for Davis his nomina
tion could have been effected. At ono
time tho Dayis vote came within two
of tho number required, but these two
could not bo secured, and many of tho
Davis men in Morgan and Noble
climbed on the band wagon.
Taylor withdrew from tho race Tues
day morning, and threw his strength
to Davis, but the combination could

John S. McCallister chairman, and Dr.
C. E. Athoy member of the Committee
on Credentials, Dr. L' n. Trickle on
Resolutions, B. E. Guyton on Perma
nent Orc-anizatlon, W. B. McGill on
Rules and Order of Business, and Geo.
Lauer. District Committeeman. It was
decided to cast tho vote of tho delega
tion as a unit on all questions.
The convention was called to order
by Temporary Chairman Dana at 11:30,
and after the announcement of com
mittees adjourned to 1:80 p m.
Upon reassembling the committee on
Permanent Organization reported,
making tho temporary organization
permanent. The committees on Reso
lutions and Rules and Order of Busi
ness also made their reports without
delay. The committee on Credentials
was out two hours, and finally made
two reports, tho majority vote seating
a contested VanVoorhis delegate in
Muskingum and Noble, being adopted
by the entiro convention.
While this committee was out, nomi
nating speeches wore called for. R. L.
Holland ably presented tho name of
Mr. VanVoorhis; B. E. Guyton per
forming the same office for Davis in an
eloquent and taking address.
For Presidential Elector the name of
Cyril Hawkins, of Morgan, was an
nounced by ex-Senator Abbott.
For National Delegate wero present
ed tho names of James R. Barr, of
Guernsev. and David Miller, of Noble.
E. M. Stanberry, of Morgan, was presented-
for alternate, also A. D. Alder
man, of Washington.
It became evident before tho first
ballot that although Mr. Davis could
come within two of the nomination, ho
could not win, and Mr. VanVoorhis's
nomination was assured. The vote
was not an indication of tho real
strength of the candidates, Morgan
county dividing her vote, which under
other circumstances was solid for
for Davis. Noble's eight Dayis yotes
also went to VanVoorhis, along with
eight of the same kind from Guernsey,
both desiring to get in with tho win
ner. The ballpt was as follows:

Col. Hawkins was chosen Elector un

Leland, of Noble, tried to turn him
down by announcing J. S. Adiar, of
McConnelsville, who was abnoxious to
tho entire Morgan delegation. Ab
bott made a brilliant speech and the
Leland moye was prevented.
In a brief pointed speech M. W.
Cline, of Washington, presented the
name of J. H. Grafton for Delegate,
Mr. Grafton was given the Bolid voto
of both Washington and Morgan, but
naturally the Noble and Guernsey peo
ple were to be taken care of by tho
VanVoorhis forces, and Barr and Mil
led were named.
For Alternate E. M. Stanberry had
no opposition, but tho Washington dele
gation did not appear to want Mr.
Alderman any more than Morgan
wanted Adair, Tho name of W. B.

man's protest, and ho was elected with
A committee appointed for tho pur
pose escorted Mr. VanVoorhis to the
convention hall, where he made an el
oquent address, thanking the conven
tion for the honor conferred uppn him.

good feeling prevailing.

Columuus, O., Murch Bl. Gov .Bush
nell Monday ovenlug granted a resplto
of 30 days to William Paul, who was to
have been executed in the penitentiary
annex between twclvo nnd ono o'clock
Tuesday morning. This action was
taken at tho earnest request of Sen
ator Tissandler, of Brown county, in
which tho murder was committed. It
is claimed by Senator Tissandier that
the stato board of pardons novcr took
proper actions in reference to tho case.
According to tho claim of tho senator
tho board failed to consider several
important documents presented as ovi-i

Twin mothers Marry Twin Slaters Near
Woostkk, O., March 31. A most
remarkable wedding took place at tho
residence of Widow Ropp, across tho
Wayno county line, In the southwest
ern part of Harrisvlllo township, Me
dina county. Tho contracting parties
wero Vernon R. Star, of Burbank,
Wayno county, and Irene V. Repp, and
Vestal H. Star and Idena V. Repp.
Tho remarkable featuro about this
double wedding is that the grooms are
twin brothers and the brides twin sis

formed tho ceremony in the presence of
tho family, relatives and neighbors. A
fine wedding supper followed.
THE OLD MISER
-Who was Itobbed ot 850,000 at Chicago
Said to lie Dylag-
Marion, O., March 31. Mrs. Susan
Baker, the oldest of the pioneer settlers
of this city and county, is dead. Sho
was born in 1708. In 1810 she married
Joseph' Wilson, who died in 1837. Six
children wero tho result of that union,
and all of whom havo died except one
daughter. In 1845 she married Ebor
Baker, who founded this city. Mr.
Baker died In 1804. Mrs. Baker's 07th
birthday anniversary in 1895 was cole

What tho Scientists Think About Their
Influence on Our Weather.
The excd question of the influence of
Bun-spots on the weather seems to be
as far from settlement tp-day as it wau
ten or twenty yeais ago, says the
Youth's Companion. So great an au
thority as Lord Kelvin has recently ex
pressed a doubt as to whether the co
incidences noticed by students of this
subject are not, after all, deceptive and
misleading. Other investigators, how
ever, continue to think thnt a. real con
nection exists between the spottedncss
of the sun and tho condition of the
weather on tho earth.
Among tho latest contributions to
our knowledge on the subject are those
lnado by Mr. W. L. Dallas, who has in
vestigated the weather records kept
from 1850 to 1879 on board shlpi in flio
Bay of Bengal, and by Dr. P. Polls, who
has reviewed tho records of 04 years',
at Aix-la-Unappelle. Mr. Dallas con
cludes that, 03 far as the Bay of Bengal
is concerned, tho heat is greatest when
sun-spots oro most numerous. Dr.
Polls, on tho other hand, finds that at
Alx-la Chappelle the warmest feensons
formerly coincided with the smallest
number of sun-spots, but that since
1878 a change has apparently ocoui red
and now it is hottest when the sun is
most spotted. Dr. Polls also finds that
the number of thunder storms gener
ally increases with a decrease of tho
These facta and inferences are partic
ularly interesting just now, fcecauso
from this time on we aro likely to seo
tho sun-spots rapidly decreasing insizo
anu number lor secral years to come.
Tho Judge's Able Support of Ills Own De
cision. At a circuit court held some years
ngo in a western stato an action of
ejectment was tried "by the court w ith
out a jury." Tho decision rendered was
couched in such a way that it caused
The suit was brought, says tho
Youth's Companion, by a religious so
ciety to recover possession of a ceme
tery. The defendant was a physician
in active practice, who, as one of a com
mittee appointed by the church, had
bought tho ground for tho uso of tbo
Afterward ho severed his connection
with the society, and it was found that
he had taken the title in his own name,
nnd intended to appropriate the prem
ises for.hls private use. Tho defendant
insisted that ha had bought tho ground
in his own right after his relations to
the society had ceased.
The court, after hearing the evidence
nnd arguments, proceeded to stato tie
grounds for his decision, and ordered
judgment for tho plaintiff. Whereupon
the defendant's counsel arose, and
asked tho court to state more fully tho
reasons for the decision.
"Certainly," said his honor, promptly,
"But as you have heard what I have said,
I havo only two additional reasons to
give: One is that tho church seems to
need a cemetery, and the other that tho
doctor has failed to show that his prac
tlco is sufficiently largo to mako it
necessary for him to keep a burying
ground of his own."
An exchange says "o" is tho most un
fortunate letter in tho English alpha
bet, "because it is never in luck, never
out of debt and never out of danger."
Our exchange forgets that tho afore
said letter is nover in war and always
in peace; it is the commencement of ex
istence, tho beginning of ease and tho
end of trouble; without it there would
