ELWOOD AND WILSON
A TALE OF TWO FAMOUS CRACKSMEN. BY MAJ. WILLIAM LOADER, of Pir.kerton's Agency. SEE FRIDAY'S GLOBE. VOL. X WISCONSIN'S CHOICE. Sot Much Enthusiasm, But Rusk Secures the Party's Indorsement. the Germans Get a Black Eye in the Selection of Delegates. Prominent lowa Greenback ers Announce Their Votes for Cleveland. Sleeker County Farmers In dorse Ignatius Donnelly for President. Special to the Globe. Madison, Wis., April 9— The Re publican sta'e convention to-day nomi nated Jerry Rusk for president and ad mitted South Dakota to the Union. When it came to the convention, how ever, Rusk's boasted boom turned out to be only a fair-sized boomlet. To be sure Rusk was unanimously indorsed, but there was lacking that hearty en thusiasm which was not wholly ex pected. The cheers which greeted the mention of Jerry's name seemed to come merely from the surface. When Judge Humphrey, of Hudson, nomi nated Palsy Fairchild for a presidential elector at large there was . three times the enthusiasm manifested that there was at any mention of THE FAVORITE SON. At no time was there anything nearly approaching the enthusiasm of the Democratic convention last week. There was no spontaneous and hearty outburst such as was developed by the Democrats lor Cleveland, The state's holiday flag floated from the dome of the capitol when the convention was called to order at noon. There was not a picture of Wisconsin's Jerry or a sin gle motto or decoration in the assembly chamber where the convention was held. To no outward appearance was there a sign that the Wisconsin Repub licans were about to give their favorite eon a ROUSING SEND-OFF. After "Hod" Taylor, the retiring chairman of the state central committee. had read the call for the convention, he took occasion to make a farewell ad dress, and, at the same time, put in a bid for the gubernatorial nomination. He apprehended the true sentiment of the party by making the . bloody shirt the keynote of his remarks, and he was not mistaken in his policy. His bloody shirt utterances were applauded to the echo, and when he said that a solid North should face a solid South, he struck the popular chord, and the ap plause approached somewhat near to real enthusiasm. Everything * WAS CUT AND IU.IKD before the convention came together. Ira B. Bradford was immediately made chairman of the convention and a tem porary organization dispensed with. A committee on resolutions, headed by Judge Humphrey, of Hudson, was ap pointed and the convention went to din ner. . The resolutions were written out on a typewriter last night, with the ex ception of the last two clauses, and the committee was, therefore, able to report the first thing after the convention re assembled. The plank on the negro vote of the South and the one on Dakota drew forth the most applause. It was a cold day for Germany when it came to the distribution of the honors. J. V. Quarrels, of Racine, nominated Louis Klein, of Racine, for one of the presi dential electors at large. Objection was made to doing • tog jircn for GERMANY. to the exclusion of the Norwegians, as has heretofore been the universal prac tice, and when it came to an election, the Norwegian candidate, Sider Brimi, of Eau Claire, got there by a vote of 201 to 70 for Klein. Again an effort was made by some to give the Germans rep resentation among the delegates at large.but here again Germany got badly left. The slate as elected was all made out long before convention, and the four delegates were elected together by acclamation. The Germans were obliged to eat crow, and accepted Klein as an alternate for Spooner. The friends of O'gden H. Fethers, of .Janesville, made a gallant light to send him as a delegate, but a DISAFFECTION WAS DEVELOPED among the delegates from his own dis trict, and 11. C. Adams, of Madison, the representative of the granger element, was united on in his place. Rusk, it is said, wanted Adams, and his wishes were obeyed by the convention through out. The entire delegation was practi cally settled upon by the governor. The nearest approach to a real light was had over the question of holding the .'uture State conventions in Milwaukee. After a hot discussion, it was decided to have the next convention, at least, at the city of beer and brick. After selecting the new central committee and electing Henry Payne, of Milwaukee, chairman, the convention adjourned. The entire business was gone through within a lit tle over an hour, and the delegates made a rush for the depots. MINNESOTA CON V EXTIONS. Delegates to the Coming State Meetings.

Dcs Moines, 10., May 9.— The Sev enth district Greenback convention for the selection of two delegates to the united labor convention, held here to day was a small but interesting affair. J. Banager, who has been in the state committee for several years, was pro- posed as delegate, but he declined for the reason, as he put it, that President Cleveland had put the tariff issue courageously to the front and he pro posed to vote for him on that issue. Moses Hull, another prominent leader, was then suggested, but he too declared his purpose to support Cleveland upon this tariff issue. One Greenbacker said the Democrats were not sincere in their professions, but it was quickly answered that the presi dent was, and that he was entitled to the vote of every tariff reformer regard less of party. The anti-high-tariff sen timent was quite unanimous, but a few of the old timers held back for the rea son that the money question might get lost in the struggle. Gen. Weaver and E. 11. Gillette were indorsed for delegates at large and J. 11. Barnett and W. H. Mercer for district delegates. A petition asking congress to pass a law making it illegal lor the attorney or stockholder of a railroad, banking or other corporation to serve in either house of congress was adopted. INSTRUCTED FOR BLAINE. Special to the Globe. Bird Island, May 9.— At the Repub lican caucus here this afternoon C. L. Lorraine, C. P. Davis. J. S. Bowler, J. H. Feeler, A. J. Richardson, J. W. Don ohue, J. E. W. Peterson and N. C. Little were chosen delegates to attend the Re publican county convention to be held on the Ilth. A resolution favoring Gresham was defeated, and the delega tion was instructed for Blame ten : to one. Instructions favoring Capt. A. J. Reed for congress were passed unani mously. A lively contest is expected at the county convention between the friends of Reed and Eric Ericson, of this county. Tiie latter is a candidate, and will come to the convention with strong support, but it is generally thought that Reed will com eout ahead. No Misapprehension. Special to the Globe. Guaceville, Minn,, May 9.— The re port sent out from Ortonville in regard to the convention here yesterday acting under a misapprehension in ting delegates to the congressional conven tion at St. Cloud, is untrue. A vote was taken on the question, after a thorough discussion, and was unanimously car ried to elect snch delegates on the score of economy, and in deference to the ex pressed wish of every farmer present. The only misapprehension was that of the Ortonville men, who failed to make connections on a delegation for Com stock, as promised. This correction is due the members of the convention as a matter of justice. G. W. Freer, W. F. O'Niell and C. E. White, the delegates elected, are representative men of the county and will vote with a view to the best interests of the people, regardless of the wishes of political schemers. Tariff Reform Club.

The resolutions adopted by the conven tion denounce the president and his pension veto message; recommend the re-election of Senator Plumb, and ap prove heartily the speeches of Senator lngalls in reply to Voorhees and Black burn.

And we con gratulate the legislature of this state on. its honest earnest and courageous efforts to restrain the evils of the liquor traffic, and indorse its action. CONFIDENTIALLY TOLD. Programme of the National Re publican League for the Cam paign. New York, May The Republican league of the United States, organized by a convention of Republican clubs held at Chickering hall in December last, and presided over by William M. Evarts, have not, it seems, allowed the "grass to grow under their feet" since the December conference. A "confi dential" circular, which has been recently distributed among the rank and file of sympathizers of the movement, purports to snow the progress that has been made during the year. There are some who think that all this has been a sort of preliminary practice of "Blame artillery," but the following, which has been embodied in this circular, will show conclusively the error of this idea. "Remember," so the circular says, "that it is the inflexible resolve of the j league to have nothing whatever to do or say in the selection of the candi dates, but simply to take np the work where it is laid down by the convention when the nominations have been made." The circular then goes on to say that "a vast army of over 300,000 Republican soldiers is already in the field to give BATTLE TO THE FREE TRADE Democratic party, and it is confidently asserted that on June 19 this army will have been increased to at least three quarters of a million men." Among the bon mots of this "confidential" docu ment maybe mentioned the following: "This is a work of the greatest magni tude and importance. It is not in the hands of impractical theorists who are going to do something sometime in the future, but on the contrary is in the hands of practical men, who* point with pride to what they have already done and promise to continue the good work until every county, town, village, ham let and school district in the United States has a corps cf efficient workers, subject to the national and state leagues. All that is needed to continue the good work is financial aid from those who can afford it and from those who are inter ested in rescuing the country from the Democratic hordes who are now prey ing upon it, and who are only waiting for another presidential victory and the capture of two or three Republican seats in the senate of the United ouues 10 BEGIN A CRUSADE for free trade which will, if successful, not only close thousands and tens of thousands of prosperous manufactories, but also reduce to penury hundreds of \ thousands of our skilled mechanics and i bring them to the level of degradation reached by the pauper laborers of the European countries. To prevent this untoward event is the self-imposed task of the league." A summary of j the league clubs in the different states shows their number to be 3,625, with an alleged membership of 300,000. Among *. these who have come to the front with finan cial aid the following may . be men tioned: Gov. R. A. Alger, of Michigan, $500; Chauncey M. Depew, $200; Will iam M. Evarts, $100; Thomas C. Piatt, $100; Warner Miller, $200; Benjamin F. Tracy, $100; Timothy L. Woodruff, $50; James S. T. Stranahan, $100; C. N. Bliss, $500; Joseph F. Knapp, $100; J. S. Fassett, $100; John F. Plummer, $100; Ira Davenport. $100; Joseph B. Can*, $50, and Hugh N. Camp, $50. The cir cular concludes with an appeal for sub scriptions at the earliest day practic able, saying: "If this appeal for finan cial is met with the same spirit that has actuated the organizers of the league in the work already accomplished, the Re publican candidates will enter upon the canvass with an organization never be fore attempted by any party." KENTUCKY BLOOD. How It Cropped Out In a Party Quarrel. Lexington, Ky., May 9.— C01. A. M. Swope, one of the most prominent Re publicans in this state, and a former collector of internal revenue of this dis trict, met Col. William Cassius Goodloe, also a prominent leader of the Republi can party of the state and a delegate to the Chicago convention, in the lobby of the Phoenix hotel yesterday morning, and denounced him as an infamous liar and scoundrel, and at the same time drawing off his coat. The hotel was crowded with strangers attending the races. Col. Goodloe said that this was no place to have a settlement, and no trouble originated at the time. The af fair grew out of the speech made at the Louisville state Republican convention, held last week, iv which Goodloe de nounced Swope, and stated that nine teen out of the twenty delegates from this county were not on speaking terms with Swope. The affair created a great deal of excitement, and rumors are afloat that a meeting between the gen tlemen would result. The friends of the parties are trying to harmonize things at the Phoenix hotel. The result has not yet been learned. Mr. Goodloe . is in the hotel, but the whereabouts of Col. Swope cannot be learned. To Present Sherman. Washington special: No Ohio man ; will present the name of John Sherman ' to the Chicago convention, but either ■ Senator Hoar or Representative Long, ' of Massachusetts, or ex-Senator Warner Miller, of New York, will be selected for this duty. It is understood that Mr. Sherman desires Mr. Miller to be the' candidate for the vice presidency in case he (Sherman) is nominated for the first place, but it is more than probable that Miller will be selected as the Re publican candidate for governor of New STork at the convention which meets next week.

Special to the Globe. 'Nebraska City. May -.9.— After a separation of twenty years John B. Craddock and wife met in this city about April 1. They came to this coun try in 1868, converts to Mormonisro. By .-arrangement the wife started for Salt Lake in advance of her husband. On her arrival there she fell into the hands of one of the apostles, who was taken by her charms, and upon learning of the expected arrival of her husband, hid her away. When Craddock arrived he could find no trace of her and after a vain search of several days returned and settled in Nebraska City. In the course of a year, believing that his wife had been killed by Indians on her way to Salt Lake, he married again. Mrs. Caddock finally escaped from her confinement in Utah and escaped to England, where she re mained, until about eight months ago, when she learned through relatives of her husband in England that he was still alive and residing here. About the first of last month she came here and j found him living with his second wife ; and a large family of children. After talking the matter over, however, she was convinced that he had acted in good ; faith, and, although she says she still Tores him dearly, decided not to disturb his present relations, and last night bade him a last adieu and started back for \ England. !THE EXCURSIONISTS, heir Arrival at Little Falls Last \ * Evening.

V Red wood Falls, Minn., May o.— The grand jury to-day found indictments against John Gorres for murder in the first degree and H. Schott for assault with intent to kill. Gorres is the man who killed his hired man, John Rosen kranz,' about a fortnight since. He tes tified before the coroner's jury that he killed Rosenkranz with a pitchfork in self-defense. It transpires that since the inquest a spade with hairs and bloody spots on it had been found. The theory of the prosecution is that the blows were struck from behind. The body has been exhumed, decapitated, and the head was before the grand jury to-day, and will be used as evidence in the trial to contradict Gorres' testimony. Considerable excitement was caused by the production of the head, and the cor oner was besieged to-day to see it. The defense will endeavor to prove that the persons who exhumed the body tam pered with the skull after the decapita tion. Gorres will plead in the morning. The state is ready to proceed with the trial, which will take place next week. County Attorney Madigan considers the chances excellent to prove murder in first degree. A Few Hours of Liberty.
