The Star last vening has an interview with that unique statesman, Wni. 1). Hill, on tbe KIiticaI sit uation in-Ohio. The ex-congressman "does not regard the democratic chances as so du bious by any means." He argues in this wise: Because "Old Hill Allen" was elected just after Grant carried the statu by $0,000. Mr. Hill assumes that tbe democratic party is in better condition now than It was in 1873; therefore Powell will carry the state. Hardly a logical argument Child Horribly Scalded. Akron, O.. Sept 23.

About Candi date and a finer for the Presidential Convention. New Yoiik, Sept. 23. Mr. B. F. Jones, the chairman of the national republican committee, w as in the city yesterday and is at the Windsor hotel. He, with Mrs. Jones, will probably be here for about a week. To a reporter of the iieniM he said last night: "I don't expect that the republican national committee will meet much before Januarj We shall probably hold our meeting at Washington. Of course n e shall wait before coming together for all tbe state elections to be over, so we can better sun ey the ground. As to the place of meeting of the national convention e have a good manv applications from eligible cities, 1 have no preference. I have said that I think Philadelphia would be found convenient, but that is about all that 1 have said about that city. As to the presidential candidate it is too early to talk about that We are not discus-lug candidates at present- Mr. Blaine is enjoying himself in Europe, and of course takes an interest In the political affairs of his country, although he is away from it. If there is as widespread a desire for his candidacy as there was when he ob tained Ills previous nomination, of course he will be nominated if he will give his con sent. I am sure at present no one but himself knows whether he would give that consent. Should Mr. Cleveland Denomin ated I think it not unlikely that Mr. Blaine would be also. All this, however. Is mere conjecture. We shall be able to Judge after the state elections of the effect of the new elements in politics, namely, the prohibition and labor votes. Both are important fac tors and must inevitably control the move ments of the two treat parties. Personally. I think the prosperity of thecountrv.uhich is traceable to republican policy, and es pecially that part of It relating to protec tion, will be very Influential in electing the republican nominee to the presidency. " CORONER'S INQUEST. Nothing ew Developed In the Inquiry. totheCaUMof the Death of Mr. Nellie LaMarr. Last (Thursday) evening Acting Coroner Esquire W. A. Stout held the inquest over the death of Mrs. Nellie LaMarr. The ex amination was held in 'Squire Stoufi office and the testimony of six witnesses was taken. The evidence advanced was in accordance with the account of the death that appeared in Thursday's KKi'UiiLir. Nothing sensational was developed, and as is shown by the following statement made by the physician in charge. Mrs. LaMarr came to her death from an excess of chlo roform : To tbe Coroner ot Clark County. Ohio: For the last week or ten dais I have been fating Mrs. N. La Marr, of No. 22i east jrtli street for Inflammatory rheumatism. To all appearances she was improving as well as could be expected. At about hal past three o'clock this morning I was called to see Mrs. La Mirr by te'ephone. When 1 reached ber house I found he r dead. with a sma'I towell covering her face, which st. II contained chloroform. On the stand near byj noticed a flat four ounce boitle with a few drops of chloiofoim in it where or how the obtained the chloroform 1 do not know, as I did not prescribe it in any shape at any time: she inhaled the chloroform probably not being acquainted with Its deadly eTecls. J. T. McLauoiiun-, M. 1)., Coroner Stout has not vet rendered h's verdxt A RATTY RALLY.- The I'rohlb Open the Campaign tail Night on Market Square -The Meeting. Two hundred sick and sli'vei'og people shitted around the stand on Market square last night and heard Mr. W. T. Mills, the prohibition candidate for lieutenant gov ernor, talk about himself and occasionally about prohibition. Mills devoted nearly all his time to damning the news papers, Inc'uding tbe Hkpl'bi.tc, and took up the greater part of his talk ln attempting to justify himself in the eyes of bis auditors. The Kkplblic showed up the true char acter of tbe man in glow lug colors yester day, and it was natural that the woim should turn. The only thing Mills shot off last night was his mojth; b did not use t'ue pistol which made him famous several years ago. In referring to tbat story he tried to gull his hearers into the belief that he bad given the serenaders watn!ng before be .tired into them. He did nothing of the sort, as can be proven by witnesses. Tbe first intimation that the merry serena ders had of the cowardly attempt at assas sination was the flash and crack of the pistol between the slats or the shutters. After Mills finished pleading for himself he abused the two parties a little as much as he could, however. and wound up. The shivering crowd then dispersed. BILL IS A HORSE. Hill, a Horn.

A frightful and fatal accident occurred at ten minutes after 7 o'clock this (Friday) noining at I). S. Irvln's lime kiln and stone quarry at Yellow Springs. Ben Freeman, a respectable young colorej) man of 23 years, with a wife and three young children, was Mr. Irvln's engineer. This morning he started the engine at 7 o'clock as usual, and noticed nothing unu sual in the boiler or machinery. Work waa proceeding in the quarry as usual, there being live other men employed beside) Freeman. At ten minutes after 7 o'cloct e Freeman was standing near the boiler when suddenly TIIKKK WAS A FltlOIITFUI. EPI.OSIOV"t a sound of tearing iron and a shock felt bf the entire village.

One arm, one leg and both jaws were found to be b-oten, another numerous cuts and bru'ses on the body: The remains were picked up and convev ed to the home of the deceased where they wai met by his grief-stricken wife ami terrified children. The scene that followed can best be imagiued. It was found tbat BOTH KMIS OF THE llOIt.EK ' hail been blown out by the explos'on.

Russell Removes a Quart of Fluid from m Man's Lung Dr. Kussell went to Frospe.'t Ohio, yes terday, to operate upon a rase in Dr. Hall's practice. The patient was a man named Knowlton. He had bad inflammation of the lungs and a large abcess had formed on tbe right lung, making it almost impossible to breath and causing him the greatest suf fering. He had become so weakened that it was considered unsafe to give him an amestbetic to perform tbe operation and ac cordingly while perfectly conscious, the surgeon cut an aperture between the ribs, and penetrated the sack containing the pus matter. The operation was iustantly successful. About a quart of liquid and matter was withdrawn from the cavity, and the man was immediately re lieved. Up to the time of the operation he could only breathe in short gasps, like a dog, but after the abscess was punctured he took long respirations jvith un-peakab!e pleas ure. His chances for recovery are ex cellent MANDAMUSING THE AUDITOR. Proceedings Instituted toTevt the Conn!!, t utlonality of the Tax Commissi on Low. City Solicitor A. N.

The piocfted'ugs will probably be before one jiulne only and not the entire court It Is probable that an alternative writ of man dauiu-. nd not a peremptory one. will be iisued directing the auditor tn set the tax as directed in the application of Solicitor Summers or else show cai'se why he should not do so. lVosecutor Weaver accompa nied the solicitor and will appear on behilf of the auditor. The proceedings simplv amount to a tet or the constitutionality of the law creating tax commissioners. Aud itor Serviss "isn't savin' a word," but wants to be legally directed before be sets the tax. A Good Boy Admirable Record. Mr. T. A. MrCar.y, of this city, biother of Mr. J. A.

YeMerday being the 22il of September, the colored people held celebrations in all the principal cities and towns throughout the country. In memory of the day on which 1'iesideiit Lincoln proclaimed freedom to American slaves. The colored people of this city intended and were making ar rangements to hold AX ETKNIVK LKl.KimvTIOX, but on account of the eminent speakers be ing engaged for other places, they thought it best finally, to celebrate on a small scale. At half-past 10 o'clock the procession, composed of John Brown st G. A. It, and the Bushnell Guard, and headed by the Sextette band, started from the post room, corner of Center and Main streets, passed up Main to Limestone, south on Limestone to Hixh, west on High to Ye! low Springs, south on Yellow Sprlmrs to the fair grounds. The crowd at the fair grounds was very small, because of tbe Inclemency of tbe weather. Tbe proces sion made a very Importing appearance, tbe Sextette band with their bran new uniforms and Spencer Drake as drum major, made a fine showing and played well. At the grounds the regular army rules were ob irved. At dinner the i-tst and guards, in company with the baud, marched up to the mess pot and receiv ed their share of sow belly and beans in good old style. Scurry says It was the best he ever ate. After mess had been cleared away, some very in teresting speeches were made b Kev. Geo. W. Ziegler. of Wiley Chapel; Kev. G. U. Green, ot the Fourth Baptist and the Kev. Mr Woods, chaplain of the post. The speeches of K"vs. Green and Zieg ler were very interesting indeed; they dwelt mostly ti)on the progret of the race from the emancipation up to the present time. Their theme was well discussed. Kev. Wood's address was no less interest ing. One point lie made is well worth quoting. He said: "My dear friends, one great drawback to the negro race is the LACK OP KACE AFPIXITY. Now, if this hail been the 4th of July, a day celebrated by the whites, these grounds could not contain the cloiaJ reoplc; but as it is a day sacred to the memory of our own race they are not here, and whv ? Where are the colored people todaj? You will find them down in the cilj standing on the streets." The rain put an untimely end to the ex ercises at the grounds. At night there was a festival at Funk s hall. At the wigwam a grand emancipation ball was given by Prof. John Scurry. This was one of the mot orderly and well conducted public balls ever given in this city. Everything was in order. There were about seventy ouples of ladies and gentlemen from some of the best families of the city. Mr. Scurry proved to the public that a public ball can be made a tirst-class affair if rightly condncted. Music was furnished by Scur ry's celebrated Big 4 orchestra, and was fine. MEETING OF MITCHELL POST. A Jo9d AttrnJanre auil Important Roil- tin llMln4 Trnncled More of the Kucaniptnent. There was a goa 1 atten Jance at the reg ular weekly meeting of Mitchell Post So. 45, G.

Cline gave notice as required by the consti tution that at tliis meeting he would pre sent for adoption a chauge In the by-laws. The matter.vnw presented last night. In effect it was that the muster fee be changed from S3 to SI 50. The change was put to r. vote and was voted down, so that the original fee remains. Some time ago an Invitation was sent to the uniform drill corps, the only G. A. K organization in the state equipped with arms, to accompany Mitchell post to St Louis, and assist a escort to the depart ment officers. Up to last evening no ans wer had been received to this invitation. but this morning Adjutant Lafferty re ceiv ed a letter from the corps, acknowledg ing the receipt of the invitation and thank' lug the post for tbe same. They would be very glay to ac cept tbe Invitation and go with tne post as escort but they had made other arrangements which rendered it im possible, as they Intended leaving for at Louis Sunday evening, whereas Mitchell post does not go until Monday morning. The services of the corps were proffered, however, to meet the department officers at the depot at St I-ouis and escort them to their headquarters, at the Llndell house. Department Commander Putnam lrote back an answer today accepting the et- cort. The committee on memorial services re ported Thursday evening, October 20th. as the time for holding them. Tbe programme has not yet been made out. CONNUBIAL TAUTOLOGY. Albert Kutruff Indicted In Sandusky County for Bigamy.

C.) correspondence of the Kii'ntrcr, of this (Friday) morning contains the following description of Mr. II. II. Warder's magnificent residence in that city: An Ohio man has outdone all who have preceded him In the building line, and lie is not accountable to anv constituency for hi" splendid work. Mr. B. II. Warder, form erly a manufacturer of Springfield, but lately a resident of this city, has erected a palace, Xo. 1,515 K street, which leaves the homes the homes of Mr. Blaine, Senator Palmer and others noted for their elegance, quite in the shade. Architect Kendall has been for some months completing the Inte rior, and has resisted the prajers ot hundreds of people who were anxious to see the interior. Not even archi tects and builders with their profes sional influence could get in. The Spring field millionaire's future residence truly deserves the appellation of palace. Enter ing the massive doorway the visitor climbs an easy flight of stairs of Tennessee marble, the landings of which are of most exquisite Koman mosaic, and enters an immense hall finished In Carlisle stone and I! VI1K APISICAX M UHII.K. ln the western recess of the hall Is a deep tire-place of lare proportions. On the left of the vestibule is the library. This room is In solid white mahogany, and is a marvel In wood work. Opposite the library is the parlor. The walls of this elegant room are composed of that rarest of all woods, white holly. Mr. W. C.
