The two state conventions of this
Republican and Democratic —
have each a contest on hand, involving
party harmony and issues that must
certainly be raised in the later state
conventions. Of the two parties the
Democratic will assemble in a more
harmonious spirit, for the strife within
its ranks has settled down to a personal
difference between two gentlemen,
which can not in the end create a pow
erful schism. The Republicans are less
fortunately situated, having half a
dozen gubernatorial candidates to con
trol, and confronted with the discordant
elements of 1886, and a powerful pro
tective—tariff—Blame faction. How
ever their convention ends it will be
with old sores unhealed and the bad
feeling of to-day intensified. The two
conventions combined will contain over
TOO delegates, and with the alternates to
be present will bring into St. Paul over
1,000 state politicians. The Republican
convention meets Wednesday, May 10,
and the Democratic Thursday, May 17.

Mojbbis, May 13. At the Democratic
county convention, held in this village
Saturday, the following were nominated
as delegates to the state convention:
George M. Giltman, John Maginnis and
11. Bragg. The following resolutions
were adopted: Resolved, That the Dem
ocrats of Stevens county unqualifiedly
indorse the administration of President
Cleveland and his views on the revision
and amendment of a vicious and in
equitable tariff, believing that the ex
action of a greater share of the fruits of
industry* and enterprise than is called
for by a careful and economic mainte
nance of the government is '•indefensi
ble extortion and a culpable 'betrayal of
American fairness and justice:" that
we call a halt on the present system of
protection to monopolies to which
(Mic national Republican party is
pledged, wToch, needlessly hoarding
millions of money in the public treas
ury, invites extravagant expenditure
and schemes of public plunder. That
we commend the attitude of our repre
sentative in congress, Hon. Knute Nel
son, at variance as it is with the obstruc
tive policy of his party, in favor of free
raw materials and the necessaries of
life to poor and rich alike. That we
counsel the subordination of any per
sonal or local predilection to the general
good of the party hi Minnesota, hopeful
in such event of a glorious result at the
approaching important election." After

Maple Lake, Minn., May. 13.—
Wright county Democratic convention
was held at Buffalo to-day to select
delegates to the state convention. The
convention was well attended from all
parts of the county. J. H. Wendell
was elected chairman, C. 11. Kohler
secretary. The following delegates,
were selected: J. C. Nugent, H. C.
Bull. J. 11. Wendell. William Quinn, M.
O. Hair, T. G. Mealy and John Kelly.
In the vote for president the conven
tion was unanimous, as can be judged
by the following resolutions that were
ggßesolved, That the present pro
tective laws are in direct conflict with
the best interests of the ' farmers,
mechanics, and great mass of laboring
men, and only in the interest of a
wealthy and favored class.
Resolved, That the principles of the
Democratic party have ever been op
posed to class legislation and sumptuary
Resolved. That the principles enun
ciated by ■ President Cleveland in his
recent message in favor of reducing
the revenue to the necessities of gov
ernment economically administered,
meet with our hearty approval, and we
pledge ourselves anew to use all hon
orable means to carry out the just prin
ciples of square taxation, and emanci
pate as far as possible the necessities"
of life from being the burden of taxa
Resolved, That the altitude of the
Republican members of congress, past
and present, show that that they are
working not for the interest of the
people, but are controlled by the trusts
and monopolies, built up and fostered
by the tariff laws. That the present
leaders of the Republican party show
a desire to fasten upon the people laws
that will build up a favored class,
destroy the liberties of the people, and
will reduce them to a condition subject
to the extortions of a domineering and
selfish class made wealthy and arrogant
by class legislation.
Resolved, That we invite all
men who favor just and equal laws,
and who believe that the government
should be conducted in the interest of
the whole party without regard to sec
tion or locality to unite with us in our
fight for a reduction of taxation and
march with us to certain victory under
our gallant leader, Grover Cleveland.

convention of Pope county* was held at

W. Brown and Ole Gilbertson were
elected delegates to attend the state
convention. The following resolutions
were adopted unanimously:
Whereas, we believe the time has
come when the farmers and the labor
ing men, to save themselves from abso
lute slavery to the monopolist and
moneyed aristocracy.should make a bold
stand for their rights, and as we believe
the existing high protective tariff is one
of the means by which they have the
power to form trusts and combinations
to oppress the poor for the beuelit of the
rich ; therefore, be it
Resolved, That we hardly indorse the
tariff reform views of President Cleve
land as enunciated in his late annual
message to congress, which we believe
to be conducive to the welfare and
prosperity of the whole country; that
the taxing of the many for the 'benefit
of the few is, to say the least, unjust;
that the duties on raw materials used
in manufactures should be removed:
that the duties upon all articles of
necessity used by those who are the
least able to bear the burdens of taxa
tion should be greatly reduced; and
that the duties upon all articles upon
which so-called trusts and combinations
are being formed should be at once
placed on the free list. Resolved fur

To Get a Share of Her Father's
The Strange Story of the Desertion of
a Wife and Child Back
in '61.
Boston, May 13.— The Globe has the
| following story : In 1802 one Dr. Au
gustus Franklin came to Nantucket,
and soon became a leading light in so
ciety, gaining the confidence and es
teem of all who knew him. Finally he
began to pay marked attentions to a
young lady who was handsome and
well-to-do. He was accepted, the
bridal preparations were made, the
day was set, but the doc
tor suddenly appeared" ill at ease. He
sent word to his betrothed that the
wedding could never take place, and
before the people of Nantucket could
recover from their surprise he sold out
his lucrative business and left Nan
tucket. Sixteen months later he re
turned, and. attached to his card in
forming the public of his return
to practice, was the announce
ment that he . would resume the
"family name of Fianklin Augustus
Ellis." This change of name created a
sensation, but his business increased
and he continued to make money. He
had, however, become addicted to the
use of morphine. So firm -a hold had
the habit taken upon him that he died
from its effect in Worcester, May 24,
1884. His remains now lie in the ceme
tery there. He left a will by which
were bequeathed some $15,000. The at
torney for the sisters, George H. New
ton, of Monson, who visited California
last October, chanced to meet E. M.
Cleveland, a former acquaintance of El
lis, who told the attorney, greatly to his
surprise, that the doctor had been mar
ried in 18G0 to one Martha Pity, daugh
ter of. a wealthy widow, of Saylesville,
Ala., by whom it was ascertained lie
had one daughter; also that on May 5,
1861, the doctor had suddenly deserted his
wife and her mother, taking with him
the proceeds of the sale of the latter's
plantation, some $0,000. and had never
afterwards been seen by them. Mr.
Newton secured the assistance of O. E.
Hall, of Collinsville. Ala., who in Janu
ary last succeeded in tracing the long
lost daughter to one of the "moonshin
ing" districts of Tennessee. She was
scantily clothed and her appearance
indicated that she had been sub
jected to all the drudgery that could be
imposed upon her, and that she had
practically been the slave of an old
eccentric "moonshiner," although her
character was above suspicion. She told
Mr. Hall that her mother had been dead
about eleven years. She was brought
to Collinsville, where she was at once
identified by her aunt on account of her
striking resemblance to her mother.
The clergyman who married Dr. Ellis
and several witnesses of the marriage
have been found, and steps will be
taken at once to secure for the young
lady her rightful share of her father's
Trampled to Death.
Peru. Ind., May 13.— John Giphart, a

by Adolph Boyer, a fellow prisoner.
Both were arrested for intoxication and
locked in the same cell. They quar
reled because Giphart remonstrated
with Boyer for keeping him awake.
Boyer, without any provocation, as
saulted him with a sharp knife, cutting
several deep gashes across his face, and
finally, in his frenzy, threw him down

almost instantly. The murderer is a
young man not more than twenty-five
years of age.

About $300,000.
St. Louis, May 13.— At 11 o'clock yes
terday morning the , levee situated
south of Alexandria, Mo., broke in sev
eral places, and a vast volume of water
began pouring into the town, which was
completely inundated. A spasmodic at
tempt was made to check the irresistible
flood, but within a few minutes the
laborers quit and accepted the
inevitable. It required less than
an hour to inundate the en
tire town, which is covered with water
from twu to six feet, submerging almost
every foot of ground. Water having
reached half of the houses, their occu
pants have sought retime in the upper
stories of buildings, where they will be
imprisoned until the subsidence ol the
Hood in the main streets. The water is
fully three feet deep, circumscribing
the movements of the population
and rendering transportation from
one point to another possible
only by means of skiffs or rudely con
structed rafts. Sidewalks are * over
flowed, and skiffs are landed in the door
ways of private residences. Business
is entirely suspended. There has been
no loss of life nor great damage to prop
erty within the town. At this point the
Mississippi is fully seven miles wide,
and within the range of vision one vast
expanse of water greets the eye. The
area of farming land in the Missouri
bottoms that is submerged is
and a continuance of the flood will re
sult in an approximate loss to the farm
ing community of that region of at least
?300,000. A high wind Is prevailing to
day, which caused the waves to wash
openings in the Warsaw levee, which
affords protection to some 60,000 acres
of fertile land. The report which
reached the city that the levee had
broken at a noint four or rive
miles south of Warsaw could
not be verified at Keokuk.

THE LOSS $800,000.
Part of the Disston Saw Works
Destroyed by Fire.
Philadelphia, May I*2.— large
brick building which contained the
steel works and rolling mill of Disston's
extensive saw works at Tuscany was
totally destroyed by lire, which broke
out a few minutes after 2 o'clock this
morning. Although the lire depart
ment responded very promptly, and the
fire apparatus of the establishment was
immediately brought into service, the
structure was in ruins within an hour,
causing a loss of $300,000, on which
there was an insurance of $190,000.
Everything in the nature of
wood work about the struc
ture was as dry as tinder, owing to the
large number of fires kept going. Half
an hour after the fire was discovered the
slate roof fell in, carrying the walls with
it, and causing utter ruin. The firemen,
however, succeeded in confining the
fire to the one building. The building
was 400x100 feet in dimensions, and 250
persons were employed in it. All of
these will be thrown out of employment
and, as all the work done in the estab
lishment passes through this depart
ment, 1,000 other employes will be
more or less affected. The ■: mill was
the most complete of its kind in this
country, and the immense amount of
machinery used was of the most ap
proved kind. All of this will have to be
rebuilt by the firm from drawings, which
were .fortunately saved. A representa
tive of the firm to-day said the loss on
the building was trifling when com
pared with the damage by the loss of
the machinery, it will take several
months to replace. The works had been
running night and day for some time on
account of an unusually large number of
orders awaiting fulfillment, this having
promised to be the busiest year in the
history of the firm.
Hamilton Disston,- the head of the
firm, left the city a few hours before
the fire for a pleasure trip on his yacht
in Southern waters.
Lightning Starts a Big Blaze in
. Pennsylvania Oil Tanks.
On. City, Pa., May 13.— Yesterday
afternoon lightning struck a 20.000-bar
rel tank belonging to the Keystone Re
fining company, located in Oil Creek,,
about two miles north of this city. The
tank contained about 15,000 barrels of
oil. and at 10:30 this morning the petro
leum boiled over and ran into the creek
and down stream about three-fourths of
a mile. Fortunately, a strong wind
forced the burning oil to the opposite .
bank, thus saving the works of the
Pennsylvania Refining company. Con
tinental Oil company and the Union Re
fining company. The overflow, how
ever, ignited another tank contain
ing 30,000 barrels. Great fears are en
tertained for the safety of the city when
this tank boils over. Every precaution
has been taken to avert the catastrophe,
but the wind is changing and blowing
directly toward the city, and, should the
overflow be a large one. great loss of
property must ensue. All the available
hose in the city, public and private, has
been pressed into service. Crowds of
people viewed the magnificent spectacle
all day.
