Republican County Convention.
To-day at noon the Republican par
ty convention was to have met at the
Court House. A reporter of the Dem
ocrat went up to see the fun, but lo
and behold he found the doors locked.
, and no one allowed inside the court
II room. From the noise and confusion,
on the inside we know there must have
been a disturbance and split between
factions, and subsequent event s proved
it to be the ease. Wrangling contin
ued from 12 until 1:30 o'clock, when
the doors were at last opened.
When the doors were opened Thor.
Orr was seen to be chairman, and E.
A. Schickcr secretary.
B. M. Foreman moved that the con
vention proceed to nominate candi
dates for three offices, that of Clerk.
Sheriff and Treasurer and it being
seconded, chairman Orr stated ques
tion and was about to put it at once,
whenJ. C. Ray interrupted and made
a violent speech in opposition to the
motion. Ile said it was a shame that
the great Republican party should put
out a piece of a ticket or endorse or
nominate anybody but Republicans
for any office, and as he understood
it that was the purpose of the motion :
that he could not and would
not countenance or support
any such thing—-he was a
Republican and would vote this ticket
straight or else vote as he placed, if
a straight-out ticket was not placed in
the field. This is in substance his
speech, as we understood it.
At conclusion of Ray's speech ques
tion was put and declared carried by
Chair, when he (Ray) took his bat and
left, saying, he would have nothing to
do with it. Mr. G. W. Fouke was
then mentioned for Clerk when some
one saying he would not accept, the
nomination for this office was passed.
Then was voted on for Sheriff: accord
ing to our ear as many voted against
as for him. We did not hear the
Chairman decide at time whether or
not be was nominated. After adjour
ment he told us Martin was the nom
inee. He is also Third party nominee
for the same office. B. R. Attaway
was then nominated for Treasurer.
On motion of Mr. Foreman an ad
journment was taken until 3 o’clock,
then to meet at office of the chairman,
to select a county central co'numtteee,
and in same motion this committee be
fore having any existence, was empow
ered to fill any vacancies they might
wish to put on the ticket—we suppose
referring to office of Clerk.
The convention evidently had had a
‘•monkey and parrot time” of it, while
doors were closed—the two factions
fighting each other like bull dogs.
'Their scheme is, of course, to endorse
and run with the Third pnrtyites; and,
doubtless, Carloss will be endorsed by
the central committee.
Democratswill have to buckle on
their armor and snow under the com
bination.
World’s Bill a Law.
After having spent ten days or two
weeks in tlllibustering against grant
ing a loan of $5,000,000 to the World’s
Fair, the House finally effected a com
promise yesterday, and passed the
Durburrow bill appropriating half this
sum, as a loan. Senate then immedi
ately passed the bill, and the Presi
dent signed it. making it a law.
As Chicago agreed to bear all ex
pense of holding the Columbian Ex
position, when it was given the loca
tion of it in that city, it ought not to
have asked for or expected anything
from Congress.
We arc pleased to see that 'Tom Mc-
Rae. and Arkansas’ other congressmen
voted against the measure.
Speaking at Prescott.
Editor Democrat:
The canvass by the Hons. W. V.
'Tompkins, and It. M. Wallace of Mag
nolia, opened to-day, and the grand
est feature of the occasion was the
complete demolition of a Third party
( limpbellite preacher, one Mr. Me.
Donald, of Hie Indian 'Territory, by
(he Hon.'Tompkins. It was a grand
victory for the Democracy, and all
Democrats felt that it was good to bo
there.

Trade Still improving.
New York, August 5. —Dunn &
c Co’s, weekly review of the trade says:
In every respect save one the busi
ness distinctly improves, though
heavy sales of American stocks ly
’ foreign holders continue, and draw
' large amounts of gold from the eoun
-1 try, indicating foreign distrust of
j American finances.
At Boston trade is fairly active,
especially in boots and shoes. At
1 Hartford wool is freely bought by
manufacturers. At Philadelphia re
ceipts of wool are large and prices
’ j firm. Trade in paints and glass is
j moderate, in liquors and chemicals
active, and in tobacco dull. At Balti
more the fall trade opens favorably.
’ At Cincinnati trade is quiet, but
’ wholesale drug sales exceed ast
year’s. At Cleveland trade is good in
’ groceries, shoes, hardware and struct
ural iron,and orders for rolled iron are
' large, and dry goods fairly active. At
Detroit crops look well. Business at
Chicago exceeds last year's; collections
are satisfactory, money tends to stif
fen, and fair crops and large business
are expected. Business is good at
Milwaukee, improving in all lines. St.
Paul reports encouraging crop pros
pects. Minneapolis, a material in
crease in all lines of trade and a very
good business in lumber, with stiffen
ing prices, and Duluth reports ship
ments of iron ore are greater than
last year and large receipts of coal.
Business is good at Omaha and satis
factor at Kansas City. At St. Louis
buisuess is strong and receipts of wheat
heavy. Business is good at Denver.
TRADE IX THE SOUTH.
At Louisville trade improves. At
Little Rock business is quiet, but at
Savannah well sustained. At New
Orleans money is in improved de
mand, cotton is steady and sugar firm.
It is within the mark to say that
the volume of trade in .July, as indi
cated by clearing house exchanges,
is fully 15 per cent larger than last
year, and greater than in any previ
ous year, in spite of a decline of 5 per
cent in prices since a year ago.
TRADE GOSSIP.
Imports are enormous, exceeding
last year’s over 19 per cent, the past
month, which is a proof of great ac
tivity in domestic manufactures and
consumption. Pig iron is, on the
whole, no weaker, though Bessemer
has sold at Pittsburg for $1.3.90 and
Southern sales are decreased. The
demand for bar is more active and
plate, sheet and structural mills are
crowded with orders. Sales of wool
increased largely and for the year at
three chief points are 174,000,000
against 148,000.000 last year to date.
Cotton mills are sold ahead for
eight weeks, and print cloths are
strong at 3 l-2c. No change is seen
in copper but tin has been lifted
by speculation, but lead is dull at 4.10 c.
THE SI'ECULAIVE TRADE.
Speculation has made higher prices
for breadsttiff's, half a cent for wheat in
spite of receipts at the west
exceeding one million bushels
per day. with exports of 800,000
bushels in three days. Corn has
been advanced nearly' 5 cents on
small sales, and oats 2 1-2 cents,
Western reports favoring shorter es
timates. Cotton has declined an
eighth on sales cf 596,000 bales for
the week. Crop reports are more fa
vorable. Cofl'ec is an eighth stronger
and oil 1-8 eent.
lIfHIXESH TROt lII.EH.
The business failures occurring
throughout the country during the
last seven days number 181, as com
pared with a total of 193 last week.
For the corresponding week of last
year the figures were 231.
Held Without Ball.
Justice Winters held preleminary
examination yesterday, in the case of
Geo. Keeling, colored, who is charged
with the murder of his wife, the wo
man whose mutilated remains were
found tied up in sacks, in the bayou.
The evidence was circumstaucial, and
in addition to that already published
a shirt bloody on the shoulder, was
found in his house and n bloody pil
low ease found In the smoke house.
'The theory of the stale, is Hint after
shooting his victim, on Saturday night
he cut off the legs and head, and after
burying the latter, carried the trunk
and limbs to the bayou, a mile dis
tant from his house, in two trips. The
justice hold him to answer without
ball. His brother, Forrest Keeling,

with deceased occasioned the tragedy,

At a meeting of the Board held a
few weeks since the Governor was
requested to write to Mr. Jay Gould
President of the Missouri Pacific Rail

’Thomas, Geologist of the Iron Moun
tain Railway Land Department, be
assigned to work with the Arkansas
World’s Fair Association in its efforts
to make a proper presentation of the
resources of Arkansas. Mr. Gould
joins with the Board most enthusias
tically. and has written Gov. Engle as
follows: "I am much obliged for
your calling my attention to the mat
ter, and will cheerfully aid your com
mittee in any way in my power.
Directions will be given Air. Thomas,
our Land Department and the man
agement of the Iron Mountain Road
to co-operate and aid in every way
the committee in collecting exhibits
of the wonderful resources of the
State.”
Judge J. 11. Clendening, of Fort
Smith, and Hou. John G. Fletcher, of
Little Rock, of the Arkansas State
Board, will address the, people at the
following places and the following
dates, on the important subject of Ar

August 15; Morrillton, August 16; At

18; Dardanelle, August 19; Clarksville,
August 20.
The hour for the speaking in each
place is fixed at 8 p. in., and it is hoped
that there will be a large turnout.
Shifting the Ground.
The chief protection organ now
says that a high tariff, “is not at all
intended to one set of workers
especial advantages over another.”
Its benign purpose is to “increase the
demand for all labor, and so increase
the pay which labor as a whole can
get."
This is shifting the ground again.
When the McKinley bill was under
discussion its advocates urged that
higher duties were needed in order
that the protected industries might
pay the higher wages required by the
needs and the dignity of American
Workingmen.
When no increase in wages followed
McKinley told the voters of Rhode
Island last spring that his tariff’ was
not intended to increase but to ‘•main
tain'’ wages.
Now that wages have fallen, and
500 strikes have occurred in pro
tected industries the organ of MeKln
leyism says that protection “is not all
intended to give one set of workers
especial ndvantngessiver others.”
This will be interesting news to the
workers in protected industries who
have been told that high rnriffs uro
adopted to guard them against com
petition with cheap labor abroad in
the same line of production.
is it not the climax of absurdity in
this wonderful system that n duty of
15 per cent on steel is necessary to en
able the bricklayer or the carpenter to
get high wages here, or that n duty
of 100 per cent on glass nnd 75 per cent
on woolens is required to enable the
farm-hands i» required for the long
shoreman to prosper? Are not the
favored manufacturers great philan
thropists to yield their "fat" freely In
campaign contributions solely to in
crease the general average of wages?
\Vlint will lie the next excuse for
NO. 313
the failure of the millionaire benefi
ciaries of the tariff to divide fairly
with their workmen the bounties se
cured to them by the tariff?—New

Uncle Sam’s Cold.
Sax Francisco, Aug 6.—An enor
mous shipment of gold coin went east
from the sub-treasury yesterday, SBO,-
000,000 being sent to the United States
Treasury at Washington. The utmost
secrecy lias been preserved. There
are some good reasons lor this. In
the wild country between California
and Mississippi there are train robbers
audit is not often such a large amount
goes over the rails on one train. For
two or three weeks postal route agents
have been arriving from the ICant on
secret missions. It is thought they
came to work up a ease of fraudulent
practices on the railway mail service.
That was a mistake. Thirty who
came left to-day on the gold train, and
with them went nine others from Snu
Francisco. For each man there is a
winchester. 'Three cases of rilles
were loaded with the coin. 'There are
live postal ears unusually heavy and
strong and a big caboose, in which
guards ride. The government has
stored nt San Francisco $100,000,000
of its gold reserve, nnd. it is said, now
$60,000,000 is to be sent to Washing
ton. One more shipment like the
present being necessary.
