AT ST. LOUIS.
The Gathering Clans Seem to Tavor Cleve
land and Thurman.
St. Louis, Jnne 3. Chairman Barnum,
of the national democratic committee, ar
rived early this morning. He could not be
seen. Congressman Scott, of Pennsylvania,
member of the committee, reached theclty
this morning. Mr. Scott stated that
although he had as yet had no conference
with the few members of the national com
mittee who are In St. Louis, yet General
Collins, of Mass., would undoubtedly be
chosen permanent chairman of the conven
tion. He could not say as to what the
committee would determine upon as to the
temporary chairmanship of the convention.
Malor W. W. Armstrong, of Cleveland.
O., and Senator Ransom, of North Carolina,
are also In the city.
W. H. English, chairman of the demo
cratic committee of California, expressed
himself highly gratified by the announce
ment that Judge Thurman would accept
the nomination for the vice presidency.
He says: "We love the old man
out there, as England loves Glad
stone. He will get 5,000 republican
votes for the democratic ticket. That will
carry the state. New York has signified
her intention of supporting hint l tninlc
Pennsylvania will be solid. "He Is a native
of Virginia and will have great strength In
the south. In fact, the nomination will be
made by acclamation."
Mr. John Atkins, editor of the Itocku
Mountain Acirt, Denver, Col., is for
Black and will hear of no one else, yet he
says: "They are talking of following
the nomination of President Cleve
land, which will take place with
a hurrah by the presentation of
Thurman's name. It will go through with
a hurrah without a vote. I am sorry to see
it, for I am for Black, but it looks that
way. It Is bad politics very bad politics."

$50,000, the following gentlemen appear

Amos Whitely, Charles A. Bauer, T. W.
Ludlow, John Foos and M. M. Hedges.
The company is organized for the purpose
of furnishing coal to the manufacturers of
the city and to prlva.e consumers, inde
pendent of all trusts or combination!, and
to operate their mines so as to a old strikes
and all labor trouDies it possioie.
The company have absorbed the Cham
pion Coal and Ice Co. and the business will
be transacted from the office of that com

its stockholders most of the manufacturing
concerns ot the city who are to be benefited
by the cheap fuel which the company pro-
noses to furnish.
The company has one mine In the Hecilng
valley with a capacity of thirty-five cars
per day, and another In the Jackson county
district with an out-put marking a total of
about 1,000 toss, or 25,000 bushels, per day,
for this city every day in the year.
The company has not yet organized, but
will meet In a few days and complete all
matters ot the organization, election of
officers, etc. This is one step toward the
solution of the cheap fuel problem.
The County Commissioners and Commit.
tee on Public Buildings In Consulta
tion. The council committee on public build
ings held a conference with the county
commissioners this forenoon looking toward
the pushing of the work-house project
The county commissioners have authority
under the law to make a levy of
910,000 for the establishment of
a work-house without any ad
ditional legislation or submitting the ques
tion to a vote. The important question
under discussion today was whether or not
the commissioners could Issue bonds to the
amount In anticipation ot the levy, or
whether they would have to wait until the
money was realized upon the levy.
The commissioners will consult Pros
ecutor Weaver In the matter, and If prac
tical under the law the bonds will be issued.
The commissioners are heartily in favor of
the work-house project, and everything
now seems to Indicate that It is a go.

sh Builds Its Nest at theOrareof
Allen Powell. Q,
A thrush has built Its nest and is pre
paring to rear its young at the foot ot the
grave of the late Allen Powell, at Ferncllff
cemetery. The nest already contains a
number of pretty speckled eggs.
The attention of Superintendent Dick
was called to the matter the other day, and
he stated that never before in bis experi
ence had he known a thrush, or, In fact,
any other bird, to build its nest at the foot
of a grave. The bird will not be disturbed.
What makes the case the more remarka
ble Is the fact that In life the thrush was
Mr. Powell's favorite bird, and he was pas
sionately fond of them. It Is a pretty and
tender thought that the bird Is repaying by
erecting Its home near the last resting place

A CHAPTER OF ACCIDENTS.
The Railroads Claim a Share of the
Victims, While the Shops Do Host
!of the Best.
Knocked Off the Track by a Train Foot
Crushed A Painful Jamp Falling
Timber Hurt by Falling
Quite a number ot ery serious accidents
occurred jesterday and last evening. It Is
a remarkable fact illustrated by years of
city history, that casualties of a certain
character go In continuity. The railroads
claimed two victims last evening, and there
were at least three other accidents of a
painful and serious character about the
The most serious of all, and, In fact the
only one likely to result In the death of the
victim, 'occurred shortly after 6 o'clock last
evening In the west end. John Patton, an
old soldier and a well known member of
MitcheU post No. 45. G A. K., was walk
ing west on the I. B. & W. track to his
home on the old Dayton road, between
Main and High streets. Near the target
house at the crossing of Main street and
Western avenue he heard thn thundering of
an I. B. & W. west-bound freight train,
which was approaching ata rapid rate from
behind. He stepped from the I. B. & W.
track upon the C.C.C. t I.track,whleh was
parallel, and In so doing got directly in the
way of a freight on that road, which was
bearing down upon him at a rapid rate.
Mr. Patton heard the rattle and clangor
behind him, but supposed it was all pro
duced by the L B. & W. train. The ring
ing of the bell or the shriek of the loco
motive did not apprise him of the true state
of affairs. The next moment the pilot of
the heavy freight engine struck him and
hurled him, apparently lifeless, high Into
the air and away from the track. It Is
claimed that the engines were raclng.and so
raDtcly was the speed of the Bee Line
'eight that in was three squares from the
scene ot the accident, when it was finally
The accident was witnessed by quite a
number of horrified spectators, who were
positive that the old man must have been
killed outright He was picked up hi an
unconscious condition, his gray bair soaked
with Wood. Patrol wagon was summoned,
and conveyed the. injured man to bis resi
dence. Here Rev. Frank G. Mitchell and
a brother of the victim rendered intelligent
and valuable assistance.
Dr. Russell was summoned, and found
the man in an unconscious condition. When
he finally opened bis eyes he was delirious,
and talked in e rambling and Incoherent
manner. An examination proved that
the skull had been fractured on the left
side and a long gash torn In the scalp. The
left leg was also hurt and though not
broken was seriously bruised. Consider
ing the terrible possibilities of the accident
Mr. Patton escaped remarkably well. If
inflammation does not set In In three days,
he can recover, although the chances are
at present believed to be against him.
A XMMOW- ESCAPE.
W. B. Lynch, a yardman of the C. S. &
C-.iiad a very narrow escape, ram a seri
ous accident tfilS morning- about 1 o'clock.
While coupling cars in the yard his right
foot was caught between the rail and guard
rail lu such a mauner that It was impossi
ble to extricate It belore the approaching
car would be upon him. With great pres
ence of mind he managed to tear his foot
from the shoo just as the cars came togeth
er. However, his foot was badly mashed,
and tbo patrol wagon was called and con
vened lilm to his residence on Scott street
where the injured member was dressed by
Dr. Russell. He will be a back number for
a few days. The shoe was cut to shreds.
