TheSplnnlDEtWnrte Wedding and flow It Was Beported In the "Republic.1 One of those mortlfjing errors which sometimes occur In the best of newspaper offices, placed the KErunuc In an undesir able light Thursday evening in its account of the wedding of Mr. Arthur Spinning and Miss M. Stella Wade. A friend of tl e contracting parties brought in a lew notes written on a sheet of paper upon the affair, and banded them to a member of the city staff. The notes were very brief glting lust a word here and there, but nothing In the shape of a coherent account of tbe affair. The reporter to whom they had been handed had to go out upon the street on his regular rounds and left the slip of paper on his desk. During his absence It was taken to the composing room and set up as copy, just as It had been written. In that shape, of course, it was crude, fragmentary and unflattering but ail unintentionally so, from the unhappy mistake of the "copy boy." The Itrrmtuc intended to give a grace ful notice of the wedding, and It takes this opportunity of expressing its pleasure at one fact that tho popular joung couple start out on the journey of Ufa with an au- splciousness and promise which no news paper mistake can dim. A largo number of friends, Including this paper, wish them abundant prosperity. A STORMY CONFERENCE. The Shareholders or the Second National Bank,ltt Xenln, Hare a Stormy Con--ferenee.

What an Old Democrat lias to Kay of the Situation In Ntw York. The following Is taken from a New York special to the Contmcrcifil Oazcttct Kichard W. English, of Buffalo, who was the democratic city auditor when Mr. Cleveland was mayor of that city, was In New ork the other day. Mr. English was a fearless and effective advocate of Mr. Blaine's election four years ago, basing his action, rot on personal grounds, but on Cleveland's hostility to protection. Up to that time Mr. English had always been a democrat He announces his intention to support the republican ticket this year also. "I shall take off my coat" said Mr. English, "and do all In my power to aid the elf ct Ion of Harrison and Morton. I know hundreds of democrats who voted for Blaine in 18S4 who will do as I mean to do this j ear. On the other hand, I know many republicans who voted for Cleveland who regret that they did so, and who desire to make amends by voting for General Har rison. I am opposed to Mr. Cleveland be cause I know that he is untrue to the nrln- hciples of American protection. During the campaign of 1880, when the Garfield pro cession was passing through the streets of Buffalo, hundreds of democrats marched under the republican banner of protection. l stood wun Mr. Cleveland watching the the display. Pointing to the democrats in the ranks, I said: You see now the results of a doubtful tariff policy?' 'Well,' re plied Mr. Cleveland, 'it Is all right isn't It? Free trade and sailors' rights isn't that right?' "While this answer showed a very limit ed knowledge, on Mr. Cleveland's part, of the old 1812 cry, 'free trade and sailors' rights,' It was evidence to me ot bis un soundness upon the great" question under lying the nation's prosperity. His action sinco his election, his undisguised sympa thy with Morrison's horizontal tariff bill, his free trade message and his open advo cacy of the Mills bill, exhibit him as a man who will not hesitate to jeopardize the in dustries of the country In the Interest of tho British manufacturers. X predict that a handsome majority of the voters of the state of New York will do found with me and against Cleveland and the free traders next November. " THE FIRST TRAIN. How the Congregational Plenleera Stirred Up the Citizens of Clifton. The Yellow Springs Review tells of the great commotion which the first train of cars over the "Shoo-Fly" route created among tbe citizens ot Clifton. Its coming was a great event and excitement ran high. Tbe Review says: "Tuesday was a big day for Clifton, and will long be remembered as marking the time when the first train of cars made their appearance within tbe corporate limits of that beautiful little village. The people ot Ciifton and surrounding country turned nut en masse to celebrate the great event La dles dressed in their finest attire, with their silk and lawn dresses, fancy ribbons and beautiful millinery; children with their jaun ty sailor suits, were busy shooting firecrack ers and hollering for all there was in It and gentlemen promenading through the streets looking proud and happy, with an assumed air ot carelessness about them, as If they h ere used to such excitement ills honor, Mayor Smith, was happy and told the peo ple to take the town and enjoy themselves. The mayor, Cobe Stewart Dr. Harris and Ike Confer held a meeting and talked over the matter as to where the depot should stand, and the possibility Qf converting the picnic grounds into a handsome parK. Mr. Andrew White spoke about the advisability of building a cable car line to Yellow Springs, and Ben &as wanted the town to haie a patrol wagon. Henry Taborn kicked on this last proposition. Just then In walked Riley Corry, and wanted to know the cause of so much excitement Why,' said Will Forbes, who was in the crowd. 'the cars will run into Clifton after this. There conies the first train now over the top of the hill. Oh! ain't she a dals?' rbpn everybody hurrahed. Riley Corry came near having a fit as he said, 'I just passed that train of cars as 1 came to town. It is nothing but a traction threshing ma chine engine, pulling eight picnic wagons tram bpringheld. It's bringing tho Con gregational Sabbath school to picnic at the cliffs.' Blue lights.

Mar ket street rei: AT EARLY MORN. Francis Biggins Dies Suddenly and Un expectedlyThe Pecaliar Circum stances Surrounding the Matter. The Buckeyes Last Night The Foos Meet ing Fixed for Mondny How the Congregational 1'lcnic Ex cited Clifton People. Francis Biggins, living at 252 east Main street, died just at the ringing of "An gelns" on the Catholic bells this morning at C o'clock. His death was sudden almost supiclous ly so. On the evening of July 3, Biggins accidentally cut a gash in his leg with a knife. The wound was not a severe one, and Dr. Russell, who attended the young man surgically, bad no difficulty in stitch ing up the gash. No especial at tention was paid to the injury, and the surgeon did not regard it as seriens. Yesterday Dr. Russell took out some of the stitches and noticed that Biggins was wild and glaring and acting like a man to some extent under the influ ence of delirium. Dr. Russell attributed his wildness to drink. Still, there was nothing in his condition to cause anxiety. At midnight Jlggins's condition became alarming, and there were indications that unless something was done the man would die. Another physician was summoned and administered a powerful opiate, but to no effect At o'clock Biggins was a corpse. Some of tfie neighbors assert that tbe opiate was too powerful by far, and that it was from its Immediate effects that the young man uleu. lhe opinion ot an ex cited neighborhood, however, ordinarily weighs little against the cooler judgment and superior information of a physician Others Insist that blood-poisoning had set in. Dr. Russell flatly contradicts the state ment, and says that blood-poisoning In this length of tlmo is impossible, and that death could not have ensued so sooon. He says that the wound Itself had nothing whatever to do with Biggins's death. He thinks that excessive drink was the cause. Tbe neighbors array themselves solidly against this statement, and insist that Big gins's habits were In the main very temper ate. He and his mother keep a saloon, however. Francis bore the reputation of being the best -one of the boys. An absurd story ran like wild fire about the city this morning that Biggins had just before his death," manifested symptoms clearly Indicating cholera. Half a dozen reporters spent half of the forenoon run ning down the rumor, Biggins's name not having at first been connected with it There is absolutely notbbg hi the rumor of cholera, but there is a sufficient ale, of mystery about the young man's death to warrant an Investigation by the coroner. " PUT UP OR SHUT UP." An Early Democratic Lie Nailed, and Nailed Hani. On last Thursday an employe ot the Pan Handle road, who acts in the capacity of bsggagemaster between this city and Rich mond, Ind., was publicly making the state ment that General Harrison had at some time and place stated in a public meeting that "one dollar a day was enough for any workingman." The Republic representa tive denied the statement o( the railroader, but he contended that he had been told so by gentlemen who lived in Indiana and it was, of course, a fact and proceeded to do tbe republican candidate up in great shape for uttering any such sentiment The following dispatch from Indianapolis gives much light on this matter, and It is now In order for democracy to put up or shut up: IsniAXAPOLis, July 7 General Harrison has recehed a number ot letters making inquiry as to tho truth of the charge against him to the effect that in a public speech delivered some years since, he said, "One dollar a day was enough for any working man." This story has been sent all over the country In one shape or another, and tens of thousands of postal cards containing the story have been sent into this state. Friends and supporters of General Harri son state that it is airabsolute falsehood. The proprietor of the Indianapolis Jour nal have placed in one of the city banks 31,000, which, that paper states, will be paid to any man, woman or child produc ing proof that General Harrison ever ut tered any such sentiment This offer Is unlimited either as to time or place.

The Buckeye club held a good meeting last night with a large attendance, despite the very oppressive weather. The meeting was called to older by Pres ident Jennings, and Secretary Snyder was In his place, as usual. One of the objects of the meeting was for the pnrpose of tak ing action upon a large number of applica tions for membership In the club, which had been accumulating for several weeks. A large number of new members were elected and some other routine business disposed of. Mr. Foos having signinea nis willingness to deliver his speech at any time convenient to tbe club, Monday evening next was fixed for the meeting. The old committee, con sisting of Messrs. P. M. Cartmell and John W. Parsons, was instructed to male sucn arrangements as may be found necessary. The committee was authorized to employ the Big Six band for tbe occasion. The address will be one of abundant In formation and Interest and should be heard by as many persons as can be gotten Into the club moms. It will be an address from a gentleman thoroughly Informed upon the subject under discussion and a gentleman who Is also competent to put bis ideas In an interesting and intelligent form. The following resolution was offered by Mr. P. M. Cartmell: Whereas it has pleased Divine Provi dence to take our fellow-citizen, ardent re publican and faithful member of our dab, D. C. Putnam. Resol ved. That we extend to his bereaved family our sympathy, lament his loss to our club and community, and commend lib exalted character and Intelligent republi canism to our members for Imitation. The same was adopted and. ordered spread upon the minutes. A resolution offered by Mr. IL I,. Preston was adopted, which grants the old voters of 1840 the free use ot the club rooms for the purpose of organization and the hold ing of such meetings as they may desire. This privilege was also extended to all other republican organizations in the coun ty for occasional meetings during the cam palgn. It is estimated that there are now four hundred of these old 1S40 voters in the county, and In due time a booming or ganization will be effected. After the discussion of sundry matters the duD adjourned. AN EMPTY SENSATION. Serious Charge Against F.V.Jenkins, tn Which There is Little or Nothing. A sensation of large proportions was oc casioned on Clifton street last night be tween 11 and 13 o'clock by the sound of violent screams in a woman's voice. Issuing from the residence ot Frank V.

She accused Mr. Jen kins of having been the man, but he denies It vigorously. Reporters Investigated the case today and una there Is little In It The girl Is evi dently greatly mistaken In accusing Mr. Jenkins, who Is profoundly worried over it all.
