Woolley, of Chicago, and Silas C, Swallow, of Ilarrlsburg, Pa. Hale Johnston, ot Newton, 111., also had a following, but his adherents did not seem con fident. A, G, Wnlfenbarger, of Nebraska, called the convention to order be cause the voice of Chairman IMokfe had failed him. Just 730 delegates were present.

Stewart, of Illinois, placed in nomination for the presidency John 0. Woolley, of Chicago. Judge George W. Gere, of Cham paign, 111., then nominated Hale Johnston, of Newton, III., whom he declared "The grandest man in the prohibition party In the world, ex cepting Oliver Stewart and himself." Dr. Silas C. Svv allow was then placed in nomination by Homer Costle, "and every inch of him backbone." The Swallow demonstration was twice hr enthusiastic as that which greeted the Woolley demonstration. The Pennsylvania delegates sprang a surprise by jumping to their ohuirs and waving- red, white and blue plumes of pampas grass. Dr. Swallow's nomination was sec onded by John Hipp, of Colorado. Bev.

His dispatch makes no men tion of 'the minister's welfare nor of the Seymour's column: CTaken in'con-nectlon- tho ominous press oflispatch from Che-Foo via Shanghai relative to the return of Seymour's broken column to Tien-Tsin, the officials feel that they have good ground for re newed upprehenaion as to the fate ot the foreign ministers. The conclusion drawn by the navy department officials from Adm. Kempff's dispatch is that he is not In connection with Tien-Tsin, nnd that notwithstanding the cable com pany's notice of Wednesday, there is still no news route open, to jhat city, save by runners who must pass through a country beaet by Boxers to reach Che-Foo, An explanation wait had nt the state department Thursday of the report from Shang hai that the consuls there were nego'- Mating with the Chinese viceroys re ipectlng the protection of the ctty. IJecause they were cut off from com munication With Minister Conger, from whom they should receive in structions ta normal conditions, the American, consuls in Chirm had been embarrassed in dealing with the local Chinese authorities by reason of the necessity1 of securing instructions from Washington at every point. Therefore, Secretary Hay Wednesday sent a general instruction to all of the American consuls in China who could bo reached by cable and wire, authorising them to deal directly with the Chinese viceroys and Taotls In framing measures for the protec tion of American lives and property. Shanghai lias heretofore been made a neutral port during 'time of war by such agreements between the for eign consuls there uml'llie Chinese olllclals, and, (it is probable that n similar arrangement will1 be made now. The only condition is that be fore withdrawing their naval forces from the treaty ports, the foreign consuls must feel assured that the Chinese olllclals aie not only v tiling, but are perfectly able to ensure the safety of the foreigners In the town. The Ninth Infantry, which is re ported to have cleared Wednesday for Mniiilii, should reach Taku about Wed iiehday next, the 4th of July. The war department already had antici pated Adm.
