"Are you satislied with the nomina

"Thoroughly," replied Mr. Mills.
'•Thoroughly satisfied in every par

Cleveland and Thurman and the
tariff. The president is a personal as
well as a general quantity and quality

an issue with the tariff." lie is the fore
most man of the party. The Mills bill
was compiled directly under his super
vision. We did not go as far as the
president desired, but we went in his
direction. Thurman is the best man
that could have been nominated. To
my mind it settles who will lead the Re

the nomination of John Sherman. I

Enthusiastic Neighbors Call the
Old Roman Out — He Thanks
Them in a Hearty Speech.
Columbus, 0., June 7.— The Thur
man club got a demonstration here to
night in honor of the nomination of
Judge Thurman for vice presi
dent. Preceded by the Fourteenth
regiment band, the club pa
raded the streets and then
marched to the west front of the capitol,
where a display of fireworks was given.
Judge W. J. Gilmore made a brief
speech, eulogistic of Thurman, after
which the club and band proceeded to
the Union depot to receive the S. J.
Randall club, of Philadelphia, which
arrived at 10 o'clock from St. Louis.
A procession was formed which
marched to the residence of Judge
Thurman, at the corner of Washington
avenue and Rich streets. There was a
liberal display of pyrotechnics along the
line of march". When the procession ar
rived at the Thurman residence Judge
Allan G. Thurman,! his son; Allan W.
Thurman. his wife and other members
ot the family and friends were found
seated on the veranda. Capt. Hoffman,
of the Samuel J. Randall club, was in
troduced to Mr. Thurman by President
John J. Lenly. of the Thurman club,
and introduced each member of the
Philadelphia club in turn to Mr. Thur
man, Judge Thurman then spoke as
"My Friends and Fellow Citizens: I
sincerely thank you for this manifesta
tion of your good will and esteem. It
has been well said, find how a man is
thought of by his neighbors and
you can form a correct judg
ment of that man's character and
worth. If 1 may judge from this
demonstration, as well as from all the
acts of kindness that 1 l»ve received j
from the goodly people of Columbus
lor more than a thin lof a century, 1
may indulge the hope that 1 stand well
in the affections "of my neighbors.
And when in addition to that
1 have every reason to believe
from the attendance here to-night
of that splendid body of men, the Ran
dall club, of Philadelphia, that 1 stand
well in thai grand old state which used
used to be called the keystone of the
Democratic arch, and which 1
hope will ere long become that
keystone again, then I have more
than ever reason to congratulate myself
ami believe that 1 stand well with my
fellow men. "Sly friends, I should be
the most Insensible and cold-blooded
man in the world if I
for the kindness you have manifested
toward me to-night; yes. 1 may
say that you have manifested toward
me before to-night, and yet 1 do not ;
know about that quite. 1 say kindness
;— was it kindness? 1 was living in my
own quiet home, with my good old wife
and my children and grandchildren and
friends around me, wishing for nothing
in this world but peace and
quiet, when you ami others like
you force me once more into
the political arena. Whether that was
kind or not. time will : tell: whether it
was well advised or not, time will dis
' close. But one thing 1 need not wait
' for time to disclose, and that
■is that I owe you the deep
est and nrofoundest gratitude from
the very bottom of my heart.
Now, my friends, you will not—(cough
ing), 1 got so much of that fire and
brimstone down my throat that I can
. hardly talk, and that is not very fair, for
if what some of my enemies say of me
1 will get lire and brimstone quick
enough without getting it now.
[laughter and a voice, "A good
many years yet. judge."] You will not
expect me to make a political speech to
night. When the two parties shall
have been fully marshaled in the field;
when the ■ issues, as the lawyers . call
them, shall have been distinctly de
clared, when all the candidates have
for the tilt then it will be right for me
to hear my humble part in the affray.
Then 1 give you my word that I shall
be heard from according to my feeble
abilities. 1 think there is life
enough in me yet. I think
that " there is still in this
old head some remnants of brains, to
enable me to fell the people why it is
that all my life long 1 have been a Dem
ocrat, and mean to die one. And I
think 1 shall be able to give
them some reasons why they
should be Democrats from now until
they are laid in the grave. [Cheers.]
My friends, it is not my purpose to say
any harsh things of our political oppo
nents. That never has been my style of
speaking. Even when I was a
very young man. 1 might say not
a man at all. for the first
stump speech 1 ever made I was
nothing but a boy — even then 1 always
endeavored to keep a civil tongue in
my head. 1 . always recognized the
right of every man to his own thinking,
and if he would only think honestly.
and lie as tolerant of me as 1 was to
him there should be no harsh words
fall fumi my lips in respect to him, ami
so now in the contests that happened in
our party, it never has been my* habit to
quarrel with those who did not think
1 have been before your convention
at St. Louis without my will, against my
will as a candidate for a great office. 1
was warmly, nobly, generously sup
ported in that convention. 1 was also
■warmly and earnestly opposed. To
wards those -who opposed me.
I have nothing in the
world but feelings of kindness.
lt was their right, if they thought some
other man was better— a better man to,
be nominated, if they thought it was
more politic or advisable, 'however well
they might think of me, to Dominate
somebody else, it was their right to
think so. They were sent .to
exercise their judgment, and God
knows they have created not
ii single ruffle in my bosom nor the least
symptom of ill will towards them. No,
my friends, 1 am here to advocate the
right of every free American citizen to
think for himself. 1 believe in it and
always have believed in it, as the very
essence of democracy and of free govern
ment, and. therefore, 1 wish to say to you
all, for i; is time I was concluding these
remarks. If I do not conclude them
soon our friend from Pennsylvania will
Scarcely find time to reach the depot in
time for the train. 1 must therefore
bring what I have to say to a close, and
it is this: That so long as God gives
nic strength to speak to my fellow men,
so long shall 1 talk to them the
in which i was schooled and in which 1
believe. Now, my friends, 1 should be
playing the part of "Hamlet," with
Hamlet left off if I did not say another
thing that I am going .to say,
and which I have reserved Upon
the teaching of the New Testa
ment that the master of the feast
brings on the best of his wine last. 1
tell you, my friends, that the St. Louis
convention did the thing itself that
should immortalize it. It did one which
of itself should command esteem ami
respect and gratitude of the American
people. It did one. thing which set a
magnificent example for all time to
come to the American people, and in
deed to all oth«c pcs j-lo wto in-.v*' *-.*>s*•
thing to do in the choice of the rulers, j
and that thing was to renominate ■
Grover Cleveland by the unanimous !
voice of the convention. Now,
my friends, when I speak of Grover
Cleveland I do not speak of a
stranger to me, 1 never saw him until
after he was inaugurated president of
the United States, but 1 have seen him
many times since, talked with him
much, consulted with him much, and,,
although 1 have not seen him for
months past, 1 know that man,. 1 think,
and I think I know him well,
and it there is a brave, honest, upright,
courageous, patriotic man on the face
of God's earth, Grover Cleveland is such
a man. Why, my friends, if he is not
such a man, if his administration has
if the people have not found that he
was worthy to sit in the chair that Jef
ferson and Madison and Monroe and
Jackson occupied, if such is not the
fact how it can be accounted for
that he received every vote
in the convention at St. Louis, and
there was not a dissenter from one end
of the union to the other. [Great ap
plause.] 1 do dot get such endorse
ments as that. Traitors to their coun
try and to their party do not get
such an indorsement; that man
of- small, brains do not get
such an indorsement as that;
men of doubtful integrity do not get
such an indorsement as that. No, it is
because ("rover Cleveland is an upright
and honest, a brave, an able man, that
the whole Democratic party in the
United States from one end to the
other, be it state or be it territory,
be it on the Atlantic wave
or be it where the Pacific rolls
her mighty volume of waters on our
western coast, be it on the great lakes
or be it on the Gulf, every man of the
Democratic party, every one who has
the least claim to honesty himself, is
heard to exclaim, "Give us Cleveland
for four years more." [Applause.]
Now. my friends, I have spoken to you
longer than there was any necessity
for me to speak and longer than 1 ought
to have spoken, considering that our
Pennsylvania friends have so long a
march to make and little time in which
to catch the train. I give you my very
heartiest thanks for the kind compli
ment you have paid me, and wishing
you one and all happiness ill all your
life, 1 bid you good night.
What the Leading Newspapers
Think of the Ticket.
New York, June 7.— The Herald will
say: "lt is as good a platform as was
ever adopted by a convention; clear,
straightforward, without quibble or
double-dealing. What it declares con
cerning promises -redeemed is true;
what it promises the ticket guarantees.
"Now let us see what the Republicans
can agree to at Chicago. If they speak
of the past.they must confess to pledges
broken by them. If they speak of th 3
future, this Democratic platform warns
them to greater honesty than they have
practiced in recent years."
Indianapolis, Ind., June 7. The
Sentinel will say of the platform that
"the most ardent tariff reformer could
not have asked a more clear, explicit or
emphatic definition of the principles
and policy of the party, lt voices 'the
convictions of the Democratic masses
of the country upon the supreme issue
of the hour in unmistakable language.
It will meet with special favor in the {
Western states, and it will be vastly
more popular everywhere than if its |
language had been evasive and equivo
cal. Of the vice presidential nominee
the Sentinel will say: "Never was
an honor more worthily bestowed. The
name of Allan G. Thurman in a syno
nym for 1 all that- is wise and great in
statesmanship, pure and upright in
public life and amiable and lovable in
personal character. A man of grand in
tellect, of rugged integrity, of unflinch
ing courage^ and of genuine patriotism,
lie fulfills the loftiest ideal of American
manhood and citizenship. His public
record is without a blemish, his private
life without a stain, lie is the expo
nent of all the best tendencies in our
politics. He has been an implacable
foe of corporate rapacity.
lie has always antagonized corrup
tion, jobbery* and monopoly in every
form, and no American statesman has or
deserves a warmer place in the hearts of
the toilers of the land.
Chicago, June 7.— The Tribune (tariff
reform Republican) will say: The nom
ination of the "old Roman" is, after all,
of very doubtful wisdom and expedi
ency, " lie is now in his 70th year, would
be over SO before the end of
his term, is in quite infirm health,
and his nomination as so good
a Democrat, as Henry Watterson" ex
presses it. is "like attending his own
public funeral.'' it is not likely that
desperate tactics of this kind will help
Cleveland. There are thousands 'of
Democrats who would vote for Thur
man for president, notwithstanding his
advanced age, who will not vote for
him for vice president associated with
Cleveland. Ihe Democratic friends of
Gray in the doubtful state of Indiana
will not be likely to ratify the Cleve
land programme, which was forced
through the St. Louis convention at the
expense of their own candidate.
The Liter-Ocean (protection Repub
lican) says: The Hon. Allan G. Thur
man, the candidate for vice-president
on the Democratic ticket, is one of the
ablest and one of the best known of the
old style Democrats of the United
States." He has always had a fine repu
tation as a lawyer, and among his
neighbors in Ohio is universally respect
ed, but he has been for over thirty
years a bourbon of bourbons.
There was a time when he
was immensely popular with the Dem
ocratic party in Ohio, but that was j
before the war. During the war his at
titude was such as to compromise him
in the eyes of Democrats who were un
swerving union men, and many of those
who had in previous years given him
hearty support, fell away from him. lie
is now put on the ticket with the hope
of calling to the support of Mr. Cleve
land the Democrats of the old school.
lt is an open question whether he will
or not, but that his nomination will
drive away from Mr. Cleveland many of
the war Democrats who hate the name I
copperhead is certain. Of the platform j
the Inter-Ocean says: "The solemn
truth is that the platform means nothing
at all as to tariff. It speaks plainly only
when it affirms the ultimate doctrine of
states' rights. The meaning of the con
vention was surrender of itself to the
inevitable Cleveland, and his message
means free trade; nothing more, not
less." • ,
The Morning News (Independent) will
say: '.'Necessity and sentiment were
the parents of the Democratic ticket
completed by the nomination •of Allan
('. Thurman for the vice-presidency at
St. Louis yesterday. Events made Cleve
land the nominee at its head, as they
have steadily advanced him from the
mayoralty ot Buffalo to his present
high office. It is a singular piece of
good fortune for the Democracy that
couples the name of its most senti
mental idea with that of its ••man of
destiny" on the ticket. About the po
litical wisdom of nominating Thurman
tor the vice presidency, opinions may
differ. His age is the one thing that
can be urged against him.. ButThur
man's mind is still strong, his heart is
still right, and his courage and convic
tions as true and fearless as ever. His
name brings to the ticket a popularity
with the people throughout the Union
that none other could. For this he was
Cleveland, June 7.— The Leader to
morrow will say: The tariff plank is a
triumph for the free trade element of
the party, led in the committee by Mr.
Watterson. The only concession in it
to the political cowards who are
afraid to go before, the ... country
as the proponents of practically
free trade, is the reformation
of the platform of ISS4, but this is im
mediately and directly neutralized by
pointing to the president's free trade.
message and tariff bill now in the house
as the true interpretation of the tariff
plank of isss. - For the first time since
tie Republican party came into power
■ fc&'ii the p.vtj and Democratic jresi
dential candidates are irrevocably com
mitted to a free trade tariff for revenue
only policy. '■. . '
The Plain Dealer says : The ticket
satisfies every requirement. It is invul
nerable from every point of attack. It
appeals to the reason and calm judg
ment of "people, not less than to
the enthusiastic, devotion of the
party to the * greatest living states
man. If the Democratic party cannot
elect such a ticket it cannot elect any;,
and ought to retire from the business of
trying to elect presidents and governing
the country. The platform is a conser
vative statement, and yet, it makes
a bold Droclamation on the vital is
sues that are actually before the country
ami which have to be faced and settled
in some practical way. It is not * con
cerned with theories, but with 'facts.
It is a declaration not so much of what
the policy of this country may . ulti
mately be, but how the Democratic
party proposes to deal now with an
actual state of affiairs. __'■??. %Y..\'Jy : r
Gresham Appreciates the Compli
ment of Being Indorsed.
Pirrsi-rKG, Pa., June 7.— At a special
meeting of the Conkling Republican
club the following letter was read from
Judge Gresham, an answer to a letter
sent him last week notifying him that
the club had indorsed him for . presi
dent. :o'^'
N. W. Richmond, Esq., Pittsburg, Pa.
Dear Sir: 1 am just in receipt of
your letter of May 29, stating that the
club of which you are secretary has
honored me by an expression of confi
dence in my fitness for the presidential
office. 1 beg to state to your club that
I appreciate this undeserved compli
ment. I have done nothing to influence
the action of the convention, and shall
not be disappointed whatever, the' result
may be. 1 prefer that this letter be not
published. Very truly yours,
W. Q. Gresham.
The letter was read at tlje meeting,
at which a reporter was present; and it
was beyond the power of the • club to
suppress its contents.
The Strongest Ticket Ever Nomi
nated, and "Will Suit the Badg
Special to the Globe.
Chippewa Falls, Wis., June 7.— ln
interviews with the leading Democrats
of this section of the Chippewa valley
district.they reply regarding the nomina
tions at St. Louis, "that it is the strong
est ticket ever put in the field by the
Democratic party." The Democrats are -
confident this year that with a strong
state ticket that Wisconsin, which has
been gradually changing to the doubt
ful column, will go straight Democratic.
An enthusiastic meeting was held this
evening to make preparations for a
grand ratification of the nominations
next week.
Bed Bandanas. Seen on Every
Street Corner.
Special to the Globe.
Sioux City, 10., June 7. News of
Thurman's nomination was received
here to-day without further demonstra
tion than the appearance of hundreds of
red bandanas on the streets. Every
Democrat is provided with one, and
they are worn as neckties, and in every
! other conceivable way. A blow-out
was had at the Hotel Garrison this
evening, at which prominent local
speakers congratulated the party on the
choice of the convention.
The People's Mandate.
St. Louis, June 7. The St. Louis Re
public comments editorially on the con
vention that the renoniination of Mr.
Cleveland for president gave official
sanction to what had already been pre
determined by the people, and was con
summated by an enthusiasm never be
fore equalled in political conventions.
The nomination of Judge Thurman for
vice-president was also au act.of obedi
ence to the people's mandate. Ever
since his announcement that he would
accept his nomination was as much a
foregone conclusion as that of Presi
dent Cleveland. No ticket put
in the field -by the Democratic
party has ever been placed
there under more favorable auspices
or with a more assured promise of suc
cess, lt is a ticket strong in the condi
tions and circumstances that sur
rounded its creation on the platform
put forth by the convention. It
may be said it closes one politi
cal war and opens another. I
closes the era of campaigns fought o
the dead and buried issues of the \var
and of dexterious evasions of the living
issues, and it marks the opening of a
new era in which the Democratic
party at least goes to the people
with a square and unqualified proe
clamation of the party creed regarding
the most momentous question that has
confronted the country since the ques
tions arising out of slavery were settled
by arbitrament of the sword.
A Grand Ratification.
At the conclusion of the ratification
meeting of the young Democrats of
Minneapolis iast night it was decided to
bold a grand ratification meeting, where
all Minneapolis Democrats could par
ticipate on Saturday evening. Manager
Sterling, of the People's theater, at
once offered the theater for the pur
pose, stating that Theodore Hays
was to have a benefit there on
that evening, but it could be
postponed until Sunday evening. His
offer was accepted, and arrangements
are now being completed for the meet
| ing. Four or five bands will be in at
tendance, and a large number of speak- '
ers will be there. It is the intention to
make the meeting a crowning success.
A big crowd is expected to be present.
Dakota Democrats Rejoice.
Special to the Globe.
Milbank, Dak., June 7.— While the
Democrats in Dakota will have no voice
in the presidential election, they have
the privilege of throwing up their
j hats and hurrahing for Cleveland and
| Thunnan, the next president and vice
president. The Democrats are enthu
siastic over the ticket and the
! Republicans concede it to be
not only a strong, but also a winning
ticket. This county sided with the
Church convention at Watertown, and
consequently the Democrats here are re
joicing over the victory of Gov. Church
at St. Louis.
One Hundred Guns.
Washington, June The Dem
ocracy of the District of Columbia fired

jf* Washington, June 7.— Gen. ; Sheri
* plan's condition is again exceedingly
'^precarious, and the feeling of hope and
> cheerfulness which pervaded the house- :
*3rold has once more given way to gloomy
* apprehensions that the worst may occur
'■'at anytime. There was a recurrence
''.of . the heart failure this afternoon,
!i3nit the attack was .hot so serious
> 'as some * that have preceded it.- The'
'» "physicians were warned of its approach,
' and awaited its : appearance with dread'
' forebodings. . Prompt measures were
immediately taken to tide the patient
over the fainting spell, but with -only
partial success, and ; his rally from
its effects was slow' and feeble.
The attack left him : ' in . a de- :
lirium. His manner, however, was
• devoid of nervous excitement. Whether
or not the fact that the . attack was less
severe than some others was due to the
administering of remedies to prevent its
recurrence cannot be ascertained to
night, though this is not improbable.
The congestion of the lungs has
again become very severe, and
Is, perhaps, more to be feared
than the heart trouble. The general's
respiration is higher to-night than at
any previous time. The feeble lung ac
tion prevented aeration of the blood and
recourse was again had to the oxygen
treatment. A "dry cup" was applied to
the chest to bring the watery fluid which
causes the oedema to the surface,
and this helped him some
what. The congestion of the
lungs is due to the heart
trouble and but little relief can be ex
pected. | It was congestion of a similar
nature which produced the hemorrhages.
The blood vessels became distended,
and finally the walls gave way and there
was a discharge of mucus and blood.
The general becomes weaker and
weaker with each of these attacks,
and the rallies which take place
are only partial. :• It is necessary to re
! duce his nourishment, and this is an ad
ditional cause of weakness. '. The con
stant recurrence ot these attacks
of heart failure and the patient's
inability :. to rally • entirely be
fore another occurs is the most
serious difficulty with . which
the physicians have .to con
tend, ami gives them the greatest
• anxiety. Another thing of serious im
port is the drain which' these repeated
. attacks have made upon the general's
, -nerves vitally. -Gen. Sheridan's extra
ordinary will-power: has been of the
greatest help to the physicians, but this
now has become weakened, and
to-night he is lying - in a coma
tose state. Dr. Pepper has been
summoned and will be here about
•2:30 o'clock, and will with the other
(physicians and Dr. Lincoln, who has
also been called in, hold another con
. {-sulfation. At midnight it is stated that
■no bulletin will be issued until about
- .-1:30 o'clock. The general's condition is
•essentially the same, except that the de
- tlirium has in a great measure subsided.
1 a. m.— Gen. - Sheridan has become
more tranquil .in his mind since 0
- lO'clock. ,He has had several short but
; jquiet sleeps, and is now sleeping. The
! pulse and respiration are diminishing
in frequency, but not in strength and
- ■regularity. About 1 o'clock Gen. Sher
idan's rest was disturbed by several
.•coughing spells, and his breathing
■seems to be rather stentorious. •'..• g ;-.

lis : Gen; Sheridan's Home. .
j°. Gen. ' Sheridan's home is' a, roomy, ;
. [picturesque double house, oh the corner
of Rhode Island avenue and Seventeenth
street. It is directly . opposite Perry
Belmont's house, and presents an agree
able contrast. Mr. Belmont's - house is
large and splendid, but it looks neg
lected. Tho turf is not well kept and is
always littered up. Across the way, Gen.
Sheridan's terrace is clipped and : wa
tered until it looks like green velvet.
The quick-growing • ivy, • that i covers
nearly, one side of the building, is as
well kept as the grass. The house was
a gift to Gen. Sheridan. . When he was
made lieutenant general of the army,
upon Gen. Sherman's retirement,
a number of his friends ' made
up a purse and bought this
house for §43,000. It was very
cheerful and homelike, and there were
merry children's faces about and shrill
childish voices often resounded. There
are four children. Mary, the eldest
daughter; Phil, the general's name
sake, and the little nine-year-old twins
—Irene and Louise. These last are so
much alike that . it is said
that nobody outside the • Sheridan
family, not even their grandparents —
Gen. and Mrs. Ilucker — can tell them
apart. They are all handsome, well
conditioned children, more like their
mother, who was 'known as "pretty
Mary Rucker," than Gen. Sheridan.
The twins are even more inseparable
than twins usually are, and all are re
garded as the model children 'ot Wash
ington.- 1 In point of dress they would
be models anywhere. , All three of the
little girls are dressed exactly alike and
all with perfect ueatnessand simplicity.
As for frills and flounces . and gigantic
sashes and lace-trimmed hats, the little
Sheridans may sigh for them, but they
sigh in vain. - Only childish things are
permitted on these fortunate children,
and the consequence is they look like
little thoroughbreds in every respect.

Chairman Johnson's Estimate of
the Vote at the Presidential
Paekersbitrg, W. Va., June 7.— Mr.
David Johnson, chairman of the state
executive committee of the Prohibition:
party, has just returned from Indian
apolis. He furnishes the following esti
mate by. states of the vote the Prohibi
tion party will poll in November. His
estimate in- almost every instance is
. made from conversation with delegates
from the different states:
Alabama ....... 8,000 Minnesota..... 18,000
Arkansas 2,000 Nebraska 17,000
Calif ornia...\.. 10,000 New Hamp.... 5,000
Colorado.... .. 4.000 New Jer5ey.... 30,000
Connecticut . .10,000 New York 75,000
Delaware 10,000 N. Carolina .... 7,000
Georgia 15,000 0hi0... 35,000
Illinois 50,000 Oregon 5,000
- Indiana 15,000 Pennsylvania..
lowa .:.... 4,000 Rhode Island.. 5,000
Kan5a5........ 8,000 Tennessee 10,000
- Missouri 10,000 Texas 40.000
Kentucky 20,000 Vermont 25.000
Maine ...... ... 7,500 Virginia . . 5.000
Maryland...... 15,000 West Virginia. 3,000
Massachusetts.l2,ooo Wisconsin .25,000
Michigan...... 40,000 *
The states of Florida, Louisiana, Ne
vada and South Carolina, which are not
organized, are put down at 1,000 each.
This amounts to nearly 740,000 votes.
In 1884 St. John got 150,620, and in.1886
the estimated national vote from con
gressional and state elections was 294,
--683. The increase in the California,
Minnesota, Michigan and Illinois votes,
it is thought, will make those states ex
ceedingly doubtful. While the result ex
pected in these states would favor the
Democracy, the vote in New Jersey, it
is thought, would lose the state for
Cleveland. Mr. Johnson does not hesi
tate to say that the Prohibition party
proposes to keep the Republicans out of
power. While they expect nothing
from the Democrats, they feel that the
Republicans have treated them badly
and propose to keep them under. The
vote in the states as given shows that
the St. John vote is expected to be
doubled, tripled, and in some instances
Regarding the woman suffrage plank
Johnson says that while he does not
think it will lose them any votes in the
Northern states, they may lose some in
.the South on account of it. He says
the only ground for objection to put
ting it in the platform was that of
policy; that all prohibitionist^ favor
woman suffrage. He says every state
will have an electoral ticket. When
asked for the comparative representa
tions at the convention just held and in
18S4, he said this year was double in
number of states and four times as
large in actual numbers. At Pittsburg
in 1884 West Virginia had but one dele
gate. This year she sent twenty-live,
and many other states showed -the same
increase. Mr. Johnson is a prominent
lawyer of more than state reputation,
an aggressive Prohibitionist, but care
ful in his , predictions and estimates.
His estimate of the vote to be polled in
-Minnesota is under that made by the
Prohibition leaders there. The vote of
Minnesota was over 12,000 in 1880. Now
it is claimed that it will be 25,000 this
fall, or double what it was two years
ago. The strong movement among the
Scandinavians toward prohibition may
be looked to for startling changes in
this vote. __.
But on It a Murderer's Life De
": pends and the Fate of Others.
Bridgeport, Conn., June s.— ln Sep
tember last Philip Palladoni, for shoot
ing his brother, was convicted of murder
in the first degree, and by Judge
Beardsley sentenced to be hanged Fri
day, Oct. 5, 18S8. He has been in the
county jail here ever since. Soon after
being committed the condemned
began to display queer . propensi
ties, the most marked of which was
that of standing for hours at a
time in his cell, both night and day, in a
rigid attitude, with his head thrown
back and eyes uplifted, gazing stolidly
into vacancy. Hysterical exclamations
in Italian, iii wliich appeals to the Deity
and calls for aid upon his departed rela
tives were intermingled, have only
broken the fits of absorption. He would
neither answer questions nor partake of
food. These and other evidences of a
diseased mind exhibiting themselves
frequently have led to an examination
of the case by eminent physicians,
many of whom declare Palladoni
to be insane. Sheriff Clarkson
and ' others believe the prisoner
shamming. Judge Lockwood, the coun
sel who defended him during the trial,
thinks otherwise and will take the case
before the state board of pardons, which
meets on Monday, June 5, to have the
death sentence commuted to one of life
imprisonment. The judge's hope of
success before the board rests on the
matter of punctuation in the statute cov
ering cases like this, wherein the loca
tion of a comma renders the statute
susceptible of meaning that a transfer
may be made from the pardons board to
the legislature itself. That the board
.has no power to pardon in capital
cases is manifest; that the leg
islature, were the case argued before it,
might, and probably could be induced
I to do so is equally manifest. Counsel
for the condemned will ask the board to
construe the passage in accordance with
its intent, and to rule that the comma
appears in its present position through
the error of a printer. Should it be de
cided on Monday that the board have
power to either transfer or commute, a
new question in criminal law will arise
likely to affect, through this comma,
many cases pending throughout the
state, and of those who are actually
serving life sentences at Wethersfield.
