A Partial List of the Dele gates Who Will Be in the Convention. <_ ■■'-■; AAA-"' A-A' '-.'*■'„ Mr. Day Talks of Getting Gov. Church Impeached by the Senate. Movements of Sundry Politi cians in Minnesota and Other States. Special to the Globe. Watertown, Dak., April 29— Gov. Church will have his headquarters at the Kampeska house, while Mr. Day will be quartered at the Grand Central. Already are the forerunners o the party putting m an appear ance here. It is thought the contest will be long and bitter, but that harmony will prevail at last. President Cleveland and Gov. Church will be in dorsed and the Democratic party in Da kota will go into the fight with a solid front, hoping to win in the future. The county convention yester day was a bitter fight. Every means was resorted to by the friends of Gov. Church, headed by Col. Sheafe, to pro mote harmony and indorse the admin istration, both national and territorial, hut the result showed that the Day men outnumbered the others, of the delegates chosen, Day has thre and Church two. The result of the con vention to be held on May 2 will be an indorsement of Gov. Church's administration. The convention will select ten representative men, friends of the government, as delegates to St. Louis. They will be men of a conservative character and of known ability. With this convention will end all factional fighting in the Demo cratic party, as no man or set of men will care to renew the fight after an emphatic expression of the peo ple is obtained. The light of old fac tions will end here, and a new basis for a state Democratic party will be formed. Watertown will do herself proud in en tertaining the large number of visitors who will be within her gates during the next few days. The coming gathering will be the most notable of any ever seen in Dakota. There will be no boys' play indulged in here. Men of experience, ability and influence will outline a policy and formulate and pro mulgate a platform for the infant party of Dakota. The people are looking to this convention for the solution of several vexed ques tions, and the Democracy of Dakota, true to its impulses of patriotism and its future welfare, will be harmonious and united for future action.

Find ing himself unable- to capture either of the committeemen named he took the noon train to-day for Grafton. Day's scheme is to capture the tempor ary organization through the aid of the committee, providing he can get the committee to carry through such rules as he may suggest, but, if the rest of the committee will stay by Bangs, Hill, Webb and others from this part of the territory, the schemes will be defeated. He says if he fails at Watertown, he is going to carry the fight into the St. Louis convention by heading a contest ing delegation, and if he is defeated there he will go before the United States senate with articles of impeachment against Gov. Church. He makes this threat openly, and says be wants the governor's frieuds to tell him just what to do and take warning. The Grand Forks delegation will cast nine solid votes at Watertown in support of the administration and Gov. Church. Day's Heavy Licks. Special to the Globe.

Out of 2,200 saloons about fifty were reported by the police as being open in violation of ; the law. Warrants for their arrest will be served to-morrow morning. It was reported this afternoon that some of j saloonkeepers had made arrangements : to evade prosecution in the police court for their offenses by procuring their : own arrest before a magistrate who, under a previous agreement, would receive their plea of guilty and bind them over to the grand jury. Four or five arrests were made to-day, and their cases in the police court to-morrow morning will be in the nature of a test. : ,Cleveland, 0..

FRAUDS JN_TICKETS. An Invention of the Enemy to Cheat the Voters' In tention. Quantities of Spurious Tickets Being Sent Out Through out the Wards. A Conference To-Day to Ar range for Challengers at the Polls. The Workingmen Solid for Politics in the Sub urbs, Seeing that they cannot win by legiti mate campaign methods, the men who are opposing Democratic candidates have resorted to other means, and are striking below the belt. Spurious tick ets calculated to deceive voters who are desirous of voting the Democratic ticket are being placed in the hands of the hired peddlers of the opposition, to be used on election day. The designers have fashioned them in a way that makes it necessary for every man who desires to vote the straight ticket to examine not only the head of the ticket, but every name on it. before he will be sure for whom he is voting. Several samples of the spurious ballots were found by a Globe reporter yesterday. The plan on which they seem to have been gotten up is to put nearly all the Democratic names on them, but well down toward the bottom of the list insert the name of some man who is not a candidate, or who is on the Republican ticket. If no votes are gained for the candidates of the men who have resorted to this species of fraud, at least they hope that enough men may be fooled into using these bal lots to prevent Democratic candidates from getting the majorities they are en titled to with a legitimate and fair vote.. One ticket which a Glore man found yesterday, and which has been circu lated quite extensively, so it is said, is headed in the regular form, "Demo cratic Ticket. Sixth Ward." Then _. FOLLOW THE NAMES of all the Democratic candidates except that of Mr. Melady, the regular ward candidate for alderman. In his place Is the name of Christian Gaefke, the in dependent workingmen' s candidate. It was one of the principles of this branch of the workingmen's clubs that they would have nothing to do with either of the two larger parties, and therefore the placing of Mr. Gaefke's name on this list of Democratic candidates is charged up, not to the Workingmen's club, but to the opponents of Mr. Melady, who hope to get enough of these inventions of the enemy into the ballot boxes to de feat the will of the people. Another ticket a Globs man has is labeled ■ "Democratic ; ticket, First ward." It has the names of all the Democratic candidates except two of the aldermen at large, and sandwiched down in the lists are the names of O. 0. Cullen and A. Pugh, in place of Ber nard Ryan and Joseph Minea. Unless trouble were taken to read the ticket carefully one might easily be fooled into thinking it was the regular ticket. It is said that similar tickets are being dis tributed in other wards of the city. Who is responsible for them is hard to say, but the ticket as it stands is a lie on its face. It is not the Democratic ticket. These are but a few of the many de vices calculated to deceive citizens into voting for men other than those for whom they wish to cast their ballots. They are a weak invention -of the ene my." Candidates, and friends of all can didates, can not do better service than to go out on the warpath for these false ballots. The proper thing to do is to make a bonfire of them on the night be fore election. Get your tickets from some one who is known to be loyal, and study it until you know it bears the names of the party candidates straight, from head to foot. It is time that at tempts to get in a vote, "unsight un seen," were sat down "Upon. TO CHALLEaVGE VOTERS. Representatives of Both Parties to Confer on This Subject To- Day. Representatives of the Democratic and Republican . city committees will meet to-day to submit lists of challen gers for election day. Under the law at least one, and not more than two, from each party may be . admitted by the judges into the room where the bal lot-boxes are to challenge those who may be supposed to be trying to vote illegally. Lists of these challengers for each precinct will be compared to-day with the idea of securing men who will be satisfactory to both parties. Unless men of cool judgment and with a dispo sition to be fair are selected, it will be Possible for them to pretty successfully lock the voting. In some of the Dre cincts the registration is more , than 1,000, and in one or two precincts it is over 1,200. In order to vote all that are registered it will be necessary to vote at the rate of about two per minute during all the time the polls are open. - The Republican committee, through Mr. Newel, has given it out that it is the intention, so far as the committee is concerned, to do little challenging. So far as the committee is concerned, there is no reason to doubt this intention, but there is a crowd of young bloods who have been incited to - a condition so nearly bordering on frenzy, by the cry raised in the Republican press of fraud ulent registration, that if challenging is begun they are ready to sail in and make all the trouble they. can. These young toughs, however, will be looked after and given to understand that they must conduct themselves in an orderly manner ;or take the conse quences. It has been proposed by members of both party committees that whenever a challenge is submitted the person chal lenged step out of the line until his case can be passed on and allow other voters to deposit their ballots. It is believed by the committees that there -will be lit tie real occasion S for challenges. Stu dents, who have registered in the Tenth and Eleventh ..wards, form one class whose right to vote will be challenged. It is not known how they will vote, and there will be challenges from both sides f they try to put in their ballots. *'_■-• READ THESE WORDS Of Prominent Republicans on the Present Administration. . Here once again are '; the words .. of , prominent- representative Republicans on the present government and the men who have charge of its affairs : .; Gen. John B. ; Sanborn said -JI am con vinced that this city j is one of the best '■ governed cities in the country.- I don't believe there is any fraud in the ad mUustration of the city affairs, and there is no call for any citizens' move to down those in charge of the present city eovernment. CoF. C. D.Kerr said: I will say that during the three years I have been in the council I have never known any act of that body as a whole or as indi viduals that has any savor of boodleism in it. I could not put my hand on a single act of the kind. In those de partments of the government with which I am familiar, I know that they are administered for the best interests of the city. STANDING BY DALY. Workingmen Say They Will Bolt the Party if He Is Knifed. The workingmen's organization are making a hard fight for M. J. Daly for comptroller,and propose to concentrated their strength on that part of the ticket. "We are organized," said T. 11. Mc- Kone, president of the Trades and Labor Assembly, yesterday, "and propose to see that he" is supported by the party that nominated him, if our influence counts for anything. We have arranged for twelve teams to circulate in the various wards, and we will have men who will be in constant telephonic com munication with each other and with others at the voting places. If we find that Daly is being knifed by the Demo crats, we shall throw our entire strength to the straight Republican ticket.merely pasting Daly's name tor comptroller. We are going to see him through at all hazards." IN SOUTH ST. PAUL. The Election Comes There To- Morrow A Young Ring. South St. Paul's election is the gen eral topic of conversation in that suburb, it comes to-morrow. It is charged that there is a "ring" down there, and there is loud talk about smashing it. It is about the same in a small way as the talk of "ring" in the city proper. J. N. Lawrence, who is said to represent the "ring," is out of the fight, having declined to accept any candidacy. Here are the tickets nomi nated: Maayor— John Silk, regular; Adam Worley, independent; John Kochen dorfer, independent. Comptroller— William R. Todd, regu lar: John Ickler. Independent. Treasurer— William F. Lienau, regu lar; J. W. Imeson. independent. Justice— William g, Docker, regular; A. B. Clark, independent. **.■'. Attorney— Alfred S. Hall, regular; Joseph Schroll, independent. •.-: A. Constable— M. Doyle, no opposition. Aldermen— First ward, A. J. She.a, regular; J. H Lawrence, independent. .Second ward, George W. Wentworth. Third ward, John Fitzgerald, regular; H. Benedict, independent. Fourth ward, Fred D. Goldberg. Fifth ward, 11. M. Littell. There is a close contest for comp troller, justice, and city attorney. The warmest fight will be in the First ward. It is said there was an empty treasury when the "ring" came into power. Now there is a surplus, after having graded streets, built sidewalks, five new school houses, employed a dozen teachers, conducted city business suc cessfully, etc. The result of the elec tion is important to St. Paul interests centered in South St. Paul. • ._». ■ WILL TALK TARIFF. The House to Have a Week of Weary Debate. Washington, April 29.— tariff will be the subject before the house during the whole week, if the operation of the resolution under which the house Is acting is not suspended. The general impression is that it will not be sus pended, but that every day will be de voted to tariff discussion. Should a break occur at any time the river .and harbor bill will have the right of way; but the managers of that measure dis claim any intention or desire to inter fere in the most remote way with the continued consideration of the Mills bill. The bill to forfeit unearned land grants, that to establish a bureau of animal industry, and the copy right bill are all before the senate in an nnfinlaned state, and will receive attention during the coming week. Should all be disposed of, the North Dakota bill will probably be called up. The fisheries treaty still awaits the completion of the committee reports, which work is in the hands of subcommittee consisting of Senators Edmunds, Frye and Morgan. It will probably be taken up as soon as the re ports are completed and laid before the Semite. The president's message will form the text of remarks by Senator Ingalls on Tuesday. FOUR KINDS OF WINE Were Not Served by Dr. Talmage to His Guests. New York, April 29.— Rev. T. De witt Talmage, of Brooklyn, before de livering his sermon to-day, made the following personal statement: -. "An infamous falsehood has gone into every city and neighborhood of this country, and been discussed by hun dreds of newspapers, the report saying that recently entertaining the officers of the Thirteenth regiment at ray house, I gave them four kinds of wine. There was not a drop of wine, or any kind of intoxicating liquor, the twenty-five gen tlemen then present being witnesses. I will give a thousand dollars reward to anyone who will prove that one drop of wine was offered, or will give that amount to any charitable institution that may be named by any respectable clergyman, lawyer or detective, such person being the judge in the whole matter. That which I suppose was told as a joke is being used all over the land to give the impression that temperance men are hypocrites. I respectfully ask that the newspapers which have been misled by the report correct it" *■*****- ■ Judd Will Prosecute. Special to the Globe.

A New Burlington Fireman Shoots Down Two of the , Old Men. One Shot Through the Heart and the Other in the Forehead. Mexican Troops Meet the Yaquis and Kill Nearly Thirty of Them. A Mexican Train Robbed by Highwaymen—Numerous Other Crimes. Galesrurg, 111., April 29.— on!: thing talked of here to-day is the kill ing of Herbert B. Newell ami the dan gerous wounding of George Cable, both strikers, by Albert W. Hedberg, one of the new Burlington firemen.' The shooting occurred last night close to Hedberg's home. Hedberg is in the county jail, to guard which extra pre* cautions have been taken. Large ti m -\ bers brace the outside doors, and tho guards are furnished with Winchester rifles. While the strikers say they in tend to let the law N take "its course, there is yet a deep under current of feeling that may produce violence. Hedberg is twenty-two years of age. He says he was on the wav home when he noticed Newell and Cable coming toward him. As they passed Hedberg says Newell caught him around the body with one arm and around the neck with the other, twisting his head to one side, while Cable struck him on the right temple. His left arm was bound fast, but his right was free, and with this he drew his revolver and tired' twice. The first ball entered Newell'i side, ranged up j* Tiiitouoir the heart and came out on the right side of the neck. . Newell released his hold and tell' into tin* gutter. The next shot was! directed at Cable, and struck him in the! middle of the forehead, the ball passing, around close to the skull and issuing 1 from behind the right ear. The shooting 1 happened beneath an electric light, but] there was only one eye-witness, the wife of one of the new engineers, who partly corroborates Hedberg's story, but not altogether. There is considerable tes timony against Hedberg to he devel oped. It will be sworn that while in a pool room a short time before the shoot ing lie made a threat that he would shoot any man who followed him, whether a striker or not. It is alleged; that Newell ami Cable were on their way to Aid. Erickson' house to ask him to come to a caucus, and that they did not follow Hedberg. Newell, the man who was killed outright, was one of tho oldest engineers on the Chicago, Bur lington & Quincy road. '•' TWENTY- EIGHT KILLED Mexican Federal Forces Have Two Battles With Indians.
