Harry Young, the rural youth who a-pires to jiose in iKlice circles, as a cow Imy and a difficult citizen, was arrested .ilnuit noon today, boiling drunk, as usual. Young went Into a resturant at 18 west High stnet, broke several articles, abused tlie jieopie within and fled without paying for the damage. Hewas pursued up Market street ar.d just in front of Regenstein's no tion store was within an ace of bein cap tured. He dashed into the store, pushing a lady clerk brutally to one side In doing so, and locked the door in tlie face of his pur suers. The patrol wagon had been previ ously called and Young was promptly ar rested. He was ugly and abusive on tlie way to the caliboose and had to be handled roughly by the officers. The exciting affair attracted the utual Immense throng. OHIO SOLID FOR SHERMAN. (ieneral KeiferSa It I to n New York Mall and Kipre Reporter. The following was telegraphed as a special dispatch to the Cincinnati Cmnmcr- cUil Gazette and appears In Frida)'s issue of the paper named : Ex-Speaker of the house of representa tives Kelfer, of Ohio, looking rosier and more robust than usual, chatted with a Jfiiit and Erprc reporter today at the Fifth Avenue hotel. He plunged at once into the glittering possibilities of lightning striking certain presidential aspirants. The electrical current, he thought, defiocted and radiated pretty much within the confines of the Buckeye state. He said : "Ohio this time is, and will be, solid for John Sherman. He has the people with him, and leally, I believe, ho can carry N'ew York. There Is no tierce and bitter opposition to him by any faction of the re publican party, and his splendid and ac knowledged ability all go to add to his prestige and insure his success. He Is the most available candidate in th west, and having a solid state, that has rarely ever been united before, to back him In the .National convention, I see no reason why Ins chalices are not good to be nominated. But if Mr. Sherman should not be nomi nated my state will give its hearty support to lllalne or any other candidate, Mr. Blaine, perhaps, could carry New York where other candidates would fall. He will have the Catholic element with him. Mr. Blaine may lie nominated again, and the same old bitter fight may be waged airainst him as in lSsl. The mugwumps and other opponents may begin their on slaught aud make it a tight race. There Is one thing the republicans will not do again, and that is to move everything to carry' certain states when they sf the race is hopeless. "A candidate should be so acceptable as not to have certain states bitterly arrayed acainst him. We should try to carry Ten nessee, N'orth Carolina and Virginia. It might W done by beginning in time and w irking streiiously. As to putting a man from the south on the presidential ticket In order to carry votes in that section, it is all rank, blank nonsense. He couldn't carry a corporal's guard. The democrats would say he was a scalawag, and work against him. Nothing of the kind will do. The next campaign will have several Issues, The republicans will recapitulate their past brilliant achievements, and will appeal to tlie people to stand by them. The wet will be in favor of silver and keeping up protection. We do not want raw material admitted free of duty, as tiie east does, and and we rather think the duty on wool should be raised. I think the republican party will win in 18SV A LIVELY FIRE. An Incipient lllnito in the sto e of the Sprliticlleld d Co squelched In Time. The store-room of the Springfield Seed Co., In the St. James hotel building, corner Main and Limestone street, had a terribly close call from a bad fire at about I o'clock Thursday afternoon. The damage, a it Is. will reach from 535 to S.W. aud the incident was extremely exciting. During the holi day week, temporary shelving was run down the middle of the store and set on pyramidal shaped timbers, the shelves rising in ter races from the rlor halt way to the ceiling These shelves are. or were, still in position and were covered with paper festooning In red, white and blue and imitation evergreen. The chandeliers are also wrapped around with testooning. A iras-jet Is Kept burning In the center of the store, and the Maine from this jet communicated witli the extremely tutl.immable festooning. In a twinkling the blaze had shot up the gas-fixture to the ceiling, and was running along the shelving, the festooning aud decorative papers upon which furnished ready food for the fire. Fortunately there vv ere six or seven persons in the store, and they managed to put it out speedily. Had there been less present tlie tire would have gotten beyond control. Mr. Charles (!. Rowley dashed forward from the rear desk where lie was writing, and springing uimu a table, attempted to smother with his hands the fire about the chanelier. He burnt his hands badly in the operation. There were several buckets of water handy and tliee were used with good effect. Mr. Row lev received the contents of one of them squarely in tlie face and almost went to a watery grave. He succeeded in dashing from the shelving all the fine tiower-baskets and straw goods. Had I tlie fire got into thee, tlie lir-g would have ' been great ami they would have been a dangerous feeder of the Maine. During the lively scramble to subdue the flames tlio doors were very wisely locked and nobody outside knew that the room was full of dame. A show-case was broken, as ere also a number of the delicate glass and bronze ar ticles; but the damage was nothing like what It might have been. The department was not called, for In such a stock, water would have played sad ruin. THE COAL ARBITRATION. Projrre of the Kfrort to Arrange the Mlniiiff; Trouble at Jackson. Charles I.. Bogie, esq., of this citv, tlie well-known court stenographer. Is in Jack son, Ohio, making a stenographic reirt of tlie hearing of the mining troubles before the board of arbitrators. A well-Informed Springfield gentleman, who has just returned from Jackson, thinks that it will lie a long time be fore arbitration Is ever successful in this particular -trouble. The two wings ot the board, representing, as they do, dlauietilcally opposite Interests, will scarce ly agree upon any common ground. A brief review of the case will be Interesting in this connection. Early in December ISsSo. the Jackson miners, who were getting 60 and r5 cents a ton, "struck for an advance of five cents per ton. The demand vv as refused by the operators', and the miners went out and remained out several weeks, but ultimately returned to work at the old rate. Meanwhile, the Miners' Association took the matter up and pressed the claims of the workmen. It was finally decided to leave the matter to a board of arbitrators, com posed of five members of the Miners' Asso ciation and" live operators, to see if tlie ojierators could comply with the demand. Mr. Chapman, of this city, rep resents the Springfield operators and is at torney for them not In its legal sense, however, while Dr. Hysell, of Jackson, represents the miners. If the ten arbitra tors cannot come to an agreement in the matter, then It has been agreed to leave it to an eleventh man as umpire, whose decis ion shall be final. I.lttlo progre-s is being made ill tlie case. Ovhtirn Jtime Miifteum.

Met III fate In Menlllie a Hide Identi fied by 111 miner Cnpt. IIowluV llitlm-t of llerenr) Coro ner' lti(iuet Saturday. Coroner Bennett arrived home at a late hour Thursday afternoon from Bunlusvllle, whither 3 had gone just before noon on an official summons, that a man had been killed by I. B. A W. train No. 0. which left here at 5:35 p. in. for the north In cliarge of Conductor Deiter. Coroner Ben nett left on Xo. 4, and arrived at Bowlus vlUe Just before noon. The first thing that attracted his attention ! WAS A DAP.K FORM by'-; the side of the rails, about which a melancholy circle of men and boys were collected and talking in awed whispers. It was covered with a tarpaulin and the rain was beating upon it mournfully. The bojjv- had not been touched since It was hurled to one side, a dead and crushed thing, by the cars Wednesday night The venerable Captain Bowlus.who wauie first to meet Coroner Bennett when he'left the train, explained that he could not bear to have the body He out unprotect ed ii the storm and night and had decentlv thpjwn a rubber blanket and some carpet over the body. When the coverings were removed, the boIj was found to be lying with the face preed downward in the snow. As soon as twas turned over, the tlend mnn at on! recognized by several persons as IBVIN CLICK. thevlneteen-year-oldsonof Christ Click, a welllknown farmer living between Bowius vlllc'and TreinonL It had been suspected bervre the arrival of Corener Bennett, that tlnrody was that of young Click. Just bcf re noon his father arrived and took pos sesin of the remains. Tfce body was not mangled or greatlv dis figured. The left side of the head was crushed in this had been the fatal blow anui me rignt leg was broken. Death had 'been iiistantaueous and the young man never Knew uai nurt mm. The bodv was a few feet from the track aud only twenty en vviuiiii me naric county line. That much farther north would have brought the cae under the official action of the Cham paign county coroner. The supposition is that young Click was stealing a ride between the tender and bag gage car, and lost Ms life in attempting to jump from tlie train, which did not stop. His face was literally looted Into the snow. eliherCotidiictorD.eter, thebrakeman nor the engineer saw Click on the train at all, and are incredulous about his having been almard It. No. 0 does not stop at Bowlus ville except when flagged, and went through Wednesday night at a speed. Coroner Ben nett believes, of not less than Foim mii.es an iiorn. The body alighted near the crane which catches the mall. Click must have struck his head against tlie platform as he jumped, and the leg was broken as the body struck the ground. The wheels did not pass over hint at all. Click must have been on Xo. 6, as the ojerator at Shattuc station talked to a man answering minutely to his description just before Xo. 0 arrived, who said he intended riding up to Bowlusv ille on the train. This was the last time he was seen alive. Click was well dresaed. wearing a stylish suit and kid gloves; When the coroner arrived and. searched the bodv no valuables werv found: on II ThtpocfietsTeVealedTiuthliig: but a large, oM-fahioued copper cent, sev eral collar-buttons, a pocket-knife, several ladies' cards, and a list of young ladies at Northampton, where the young nun had iust been visiting, and had seiit several i nays at Hunting, lie had had a new pair of boots in hi-, arms when tlie accident oc curred, and they were found twelve feet away from the body. One boot con-' tallied a iHiwder-horu, the other a leath er pouch of shot, while a box of water-proof caps were found in the coat-, pocket AH these are accounted for by the limiting trip he had just finished and the list of names were of young ladies lie had met at Bowlusville. The absence of any watch, money or val uables on the body, and the positive. aser-! tion of the train men that Click was not on . Iioard of Xo. a j CItEATI A POsSIIIILITV That death might have resulted other wise than in tiie manner above described. Coroner Bennett thinks there is little doubt, but will of course bold an Inquest, com mencing probably Saturday mi ruing. Click was a mere boy. aged, as stated, only nineteen, and is well known In this city. His fate is a very sad one. Constable Vanderburg went to Bowlus ville this forenoon to serve subpsenas on witnesses who are to appear before Coroner Beunett in the inquest Saturday. They are Daniel Rnckafield and Albert Jenkins, of Bowlusville, C. II. Gainbee). the telegraph operator at Shattuc. Conductor Dieter, of train Xo. , and Chris Click, father of the deceased. IMPORTANT CASES. Tlie Italian Cutter Hound Over William Jennings Plead Guilty Coltuan IN. inied. While yesterday afternoon's session of the police court was not long, the three cases tried were of unusual importance and Interest.

The ease made against him was very plain and he was hound over to court by Mayor Goodwin In tlie sum of Si ()0. Being unable to give bail, he was remanded to jail to await the at tion of the grand jury.

Ohio, near Tiffin, a week ago last Tuesday morning in which eighteen ieople met witli horrible deaths. Mr. St John came within a hair's breadth of being a passenger on tlie ill-fated train, and he would probably have been among the killed, for it is his invaria ble habit to ride in the smoking car. The night of the accident It occurred about 3 o'clock In the morning Mr. M. John stopiied at a small country town named Fort Washington, a short distance bove Republic. Ohio. He was working his way down through the little towns in that vicinity to Lima. O.

Just be fore going to bed Mr. -"-L John told the clerk that as it was -) awfully cold h wouldnt feel very bad If he Jidntcall him Providentially for Mr. St. John the clerk failed to rail him. and the train passed on through. The news of the terrible wreck reached Fort Washington mkhi after it oc curred and tne greatest excitement reigned AH the guest" at tlie Lotel. including Mr St John, went to Republic on a made-up train and worked like horses to succor tin dying and extricate the dead. Mr. St John says the horrors of the n reck were not exaggerated in the paiers in the leat. and that the human mind cannot conceive of the sights and sounds heard and wit nessed there as the dull dark day dawned He helped lay the dozen or more charred trunks In a row and saw the unfortunatt man from Washington.
