when he went to a house on East liaspberrr
alley, to arrange for holding an Inquest on
the death of Joseph Moealtis, who was killed
by cars In tho Knickerbocker colliery, and
which was reported In the Ubbald of last
The victim was the nineteen year old son

colliery. It la essential before inquests are
now to have tbe Coroner s jury view tbo re'

As tbe Deputy Coroner and jury filed into
the house from the rear they found an apart
ment filled with friends of the deceased, who
were holding tbo wake. Passing into tbe
front room they beheld a condition affairs that
touched tho stoutest heart. A most distress
ing situation presented itself. To the left of
the room was tho corpse in the usual rerep
taclo prior to preparation for burial. To the
right was a bed upon which lay the father of
tbo deceased with his right arm and right leg
broken, the injuries having been sustained in
tho Turkey Run colliery threo weeks ago.
At the root or the bed was a couch
upon which reclined the mother of
the deceased. She was very 111,
but in her sore condition was trying
to soothe a sick and crying child.
Tbo father, a flue looking and Intelligent
man with good command of the English
language, bore up bravely under the distress
ing circumstances aud told. In a few words, n
story of repeated misfortunes which had re-
lured him to poverty. He said he had some
wages due him at the Turkey Run colliery,
but neither himself nor his wife could go to
the colliery to-day tochlm them. Deputy
Coroner Cardtn prepared a certificate ad-

balloting occurred In tho afternoon be
hind closed doors.
On the first ballot Philadelphia re

7 and St. Louis 9. On the second bal
lot the contest narrowed to Philadel

votes went to Philadelphia and the St.

It was the desire of the leaders that
the convention should be held June 12,
and that date would have been select
ed had It not been that It conflicted
with the date of the Rhode Island
elections. June 5 was then selected,
but the date was reconsidered and
changed to the 13th. in the hope and
belief that before that data, congress
will have adjourned.
After the time and place had been
selected the committee considered
briefly a request from Delaware that
the committee take some action to
straighten out the factional fight to
prevent two contesting legations
from appaaring from that state. The
committee decided that It had no Juris
diction. After the Delaware case had been
disposed of the chairman was author

prepare and distribute literature.
