Holmes Conrad, of Virginia, the
Present Solicitor General, a
WASHINGTON, June 4.— There is
no longer any reasonable doubt but
that the president has fully determined
to ask Attorney General Olney to ac-
cept the state department portfolio.
While this is an . undoubted fact, it
is also certain that the president has
not even intimated to Mr. Olney that
this was his purpose. To other mem-
bers of the cabinet, however, it is ;
learned that he has stated «in sub-
stance that he should ask Mr. Olney
to accept the place, and that he .was
delaying the public announcement in
order that he might at the same
time name a successor to Mr. Olney
as attorney general. Persons in a
position to know what the president's
purposes are anticipated an early an-
nouncement of Mr. Olney's appoint-
ment, and probably that of his sue- j
cessor. Senator Gray's visit to the ;
White house was undoubtedly in re- j
sponse to a telegram from 'the presi- j
dent, who, it is learned, would not J
hesitate to offer Mr. Gray a place in |
his cabinet were it not for the fact
•that his retirement from 'the senate
would almost certainly result in the
election of a Republican as his sue- !
cessor. It is thought that up to' this I
time the president has not definitely J
decided upon Mr. Olney's successor. j
A long list of names is being discussed, ;
but everything in that connection is [j
purely speculative. Ex-Postmaster j
General Don M. Dickinson, it is said, !
would be ! very likely of appointment •
if he would accept. A possibility is
Holmes Conrad, of Virginia, the pres
ent solicitor general.' He has the rep-
utation of being a man of brilliant
legal attainments, and enjoys the high
regard of the members of the United j
States supreme court. The fact that
Mr. Conrad comes from Virginia, |
however, may operate against his ap- j
pointment, but in case he is selectea j
it is believed that Mr. Uhl, the pres
ent assistant secretary of state, would
be a candidate for this place at the
time Mr. Maxwell was appointed, and
it is believed that the change from the
department of state to that of justice
would be most agreeable to him.
Richard Olney, who is now In all
probability to be advanced to the first
place in President Cleveland's cabinet,
has won this distinction by the able
service he has thus far rendered the
president- on all the more important
; questions that have engaged public at
i tention since the present admlnistra
-1 tion began. During the great strike at
Chicago Mr. Olney's services were par-
ticularly notable. He developed each
step that the government authorities
took, and President Cleveland was so
fully convinced of the wisdom of the
proposed policy that he gave it thor
ough support and execution. In this
question Mr. Olney was impelled by a
desire to suppress disorder. He had
shown in another case his sincere re-
spect for the rights of labor. This was
in a case of the Reading railroad.which
sought to compel one of its employes to
either sever his connection with a rail-
way beneficial organization or the com-
pany's service. Although the govern-
ment had no direct interests in the
case, Mr. Olney secured the permission
of the court to present a brief in be-
half of the employe, in which he held
that the proposed action of the com-
pany was against justice and - right.
The brief was marked by a vigorous
defense of the rights of labor to or-
ganize in any way it saw fit, for ad-
vancing its interests, so long as the
means were peaceful and within the
law.- The . :-'
comes from sturdy Puritan stock. His
ancestor, Thomas Olney, came from
England and settled at Salem, Mass., in
1735. The father of Richard Olney
owned and managed the cotton mills
at Oxford, and also engaged in bank-
ing. His mother was a Sigourney, "de-
scended from French Huguenots who
fled from France to this country. The
new secretary- of state was graduated
from Brown university in 1856, and from
the Harvard law school in 1858. He
married Agnes, daughter of Judge
Benjamin F. -Thomas, with whom he
studied law. They have lived at late
years at Boston,.. with summer homes
near Buzzard's Bay and Gray Gables,
the summer, residence of the president.
Mr. Olney is a gentleman of fine liter-
ary attainments and tastes. Although
a close student, he is a lover of out-
door sports, and is a good horseman,
an enthusiastic tennis player and a
skillful angler. He is a man of me-
dium height and robust form, and in
general appearance he conveys the im
pression of intense vitality and physi
cal endurance beyond that of any man
who has occupied the position of sec-
reary of state in recent years. His
face is strong, keen and intellectual.
Though his manner is somewhat re-
served and austere, he unbends readily
to the approaches of intimate friends.
Mr. Olney has served one -term In the
state legislature of Massachusetts. . In
politics he is an old-time Democrat, but
was unable to support Butler for gov
ernor. He did not take a -prominent
part ln the last presidential campaign,
but rendered effective service to Mr.
Cleveland in an unobtrusive manner. As
a lawyer, Mr. Olney's success has been
that of a counselor, rather than that
of an advocate. -He is -regarded as a
masterly exponent of the law, relying
upon conciseness of expression and
clearness of statement, rather than upon
purely rhetorical effort, for the sue-
cess of his efforts. "7. V: . 7; * V

With a Razor He Cats His Wife in
a Frit*; lit Manner. 7
EVANSVILLE, Ind., June 4.— For
some months Valentine Weissman has
been jealous over his wife, and he
had frequent quarrels . with her. Last
night her brothers spent the evening
with them, and after they had gone
he showed that he was jealous even
of them. Mrs. Weissman was nursing"
her six-months-old babe preparatory
to putting it to bed. Weissman went
into the room where his wife was and
told her he was going to kill her. He
snatched the baby f rim her arms and
dashed it to the floor. Then he got
a razor. His wife ran from the house,
but was stopped by a high fence, and
he caught her. He immediately be
gan to slash her with the razor. He
cut her in the throat three times, sev
eral times in the face and then began
hacking at her. In all he cut her in
121 places. The coming of neighbors
frightened him away and the poor
woman recovered sufficiently to get
her babe and flee to a neighbor's
house. She fainted on the way, and
was carried into a house. Weissman
escaped, and was captured this morn
ing. He was trying to commit sui
cide by hanging himself with a piece
of wire when found. The wife and
child will die.

away. One bullet struck Donnovan in
the head, another broke his left arm,
a third entered his shoulder and the
fourth ploughed a hole in the abdomen.

pistol. Donnovan is still alive, but can-
not recover. 77. 77

Says the People's Party "Will
Gather in All the Free Silver
Men of the Country.
SPRINGFIELD, 111., June 4.— The
Democratic state convention called by
the state central committee to adopt a
policy for the party in ". Illinois upon
the money question will convene at
noon tomorrow. There is every mdi
cation tonight that every county, in ,
the state will be represented by Its
full quota of delegates. The S3ntim=nt
among the delegates in favor of free
silver seems to be so nearly unani
mous that there is no prospect of even
a show of a fight from the opposition.
The movement in the direction of a
national money convention seems to
be gaining force every hour. Judge
Goodrich, of Chicago, is one of the few
"sound money" Democrats who are
delegates .Jo the convention. He will
oppose the scheme to call a national
money convention. He said tonight
that he could see no sense in such, a
proceeding at this time. The ; sudden
appearance here today of Herman E,
Taubeneck, who will be remembered
as . one of the Farmers' Mutual Be-
nevolent association members in the j
famous senatorial fight of '91,, caused
much comment. He said this even-
ing that he had no interest in the con;
vention except as a spectator. He ad-
ded, however, that "certain managers
of the Democratic. party are now plan-
ning to steal the Populist platform.''
Taubeneck has . no objection to this—
in fact he is doing all he can to en-
courage the agitation, for he feels
sure it will in time disrupt the Dem
ocratic: party.
"The silver element of the party,"
saM he, "is much more in evidence
now than the • other wing, but this is
owing to the fact that the silver move-
ment is being promoted by the 'ma-
chine' of the party. I:'' ']'\
in Illinois are not nearly so numerous )\
as they seem. I think it may be, safely.
estimated that fully one-third of the .
Democrats :of Illinois are gold men, :
and a declaration for free silver would?
drive these men out of the Democratic
party. When the issue is finally
forced upon the Republican party, as
it must be, it will certainly prove de- j
moralizing. Ultimately the .result |
will be that the People's . party will
gather in all the free silver men of the
country. Personally, I favor the
union of all the forces opposed to the
gold standard in next year's campaign^
I mean the silver Democrats of the
South and West, the silver Repub
licans of .'the' West, the Populists of ,
the Whole: country; and the bimetal-
lie party. If the union can be accom-
plished the victory for silver is- won. ".
If it cannot be, the contest for, 189o:
is lost. These elements cannot be
united in either the Republican or j
Democratic parties. I feel certain that:
-the silver sentiment of the country!
will eventually be consolidated into one
party. That party must be the' Pep
ple's party." It is probable '4. that';
there, will be a meeting of prominent.
Populists here tomorrow, evening, and j
that an address to the country will
be issued, based on the action of to-
morrow's convention. When the Cook'
county delegates and visitors arrived
this evening they marched at once to f
the executive : mansion, where Gov.
Altgeld received them with a free sil
ver speech. 7Y7YY . ^.i \
At a meeting of the Democratic state '
central committee tonight there was a
lively fight over a resolution authoriz-
ing district committees to request*

called^ After considerable wrangling j
the resolution was adopted. After the i
adoption of the- resolution temporary i:
officers for the convention were select-
ed, the chairman being Judge Craw-
ford, of Union county. A resolution !
was also adopted stating that the call
for a convention was regular. Gov.

CHAMBERLAIN, S. D., June 4.—
Something of an uproar exists at
Warner, Brown county, by reason of
the evident attempts to drive a citi-
. zen, Dr. Phelps, from the village. A
party of men went to the .doctor's
sleeping room the other night, armed
with buckets of water, and thoroughly
soaked the astonished man. Later a
cream-colored pony belonging to him
was found dyed a brilliant carmine.
On suspicion of having committed these
acts, Walter Briggs and Joe Brieden-
bach were arrested, taken before a
justice of the peace and fined $10 and
$15 respectively. . The trouble arises
from lodge matters. It is alleged .that
the doctor was suspended from the
Warner lodge of Modern Woodmen,
and finally expelled. Other members
of the lodge accuse him of exposing
the secrets of the order; that he ex-
plained the details of the degrees to
persons about to be initiated. At
present there is a suspension of hos
tilities, but some individuals have ex-
pressed a determination to drive the
doctor from the town. The doctor, on
the other hand, intimates that he
stands ready to fill some one full of

. SANDSTONE, Minn., June The
torpor of the last three months is at
last thrown off, and the Phoenix City
assumes the appearance of a thriving
metropolis. During the entire spring
work : has progressed steadily on . the
streets and in the quarries, several
thousand dollars having been expended
by the city in grading, so that Main,
Commercial, Court, Park and Bluff
avenues, together with the cross streets
as for north as Tenth avenue, are
in 'i first-class condition. Besides this
the work in the quarry and on the dam
and sawmill has been • unremittingly
pushed, and this source of business ac-
tivity is now nearly ready to accom
modate the large number of men nec
essary to its complete operation.- From
three to five hundred men will be con-
stantly employed in the quarries, as
the present owners, the Minnesota
Sandstone company, have extended
them considerably. The sawmill which
they have erected.and which will be run
by a six-foot turbine wheel at the
dam, contains one diamond saw and
one gang saw, and will cut all the stone
that can be taken out. The immense
new dam will also furnish power to
operate the system of water works
that is now being laid. These new
water works cover nearly every street
in the city and bring water from one
of the purest springs in the country,
second only to the famous "Panduk"
springs in Maine. The Great North-
crn has obtained, by condemnation,
two and a half acres in the south part
of town, for which they paid $2,000,
and on which they have begun the
erection of a 15-stall roundhouse. This
roundhouse is to be built entirely of
Kettle River sandstone, and Indicates
the extension of the Foss.on branch to
this place. Nearly 200 men are em-
ployed on the structure, besides the
large force of graders that is filling in
around the basement. All told, nearly
SOO men are at work here. The hard -.
times have no effect •on the boom,
which is second only, to the Dakota
rush of the early '80s.

The unholy alliance between the Re-
publican members of the ommon
council and three aldermen who were'
elected by Democratic votes triumphed' ..
yesterday afternoon. It resulted in
the election of a Republican city clerk..
It also resulted in the everlasting dis-
grace of those three aldermen who
proved "false as dicers' oaths" to
their party. No such spectacle as that
which shamed the very walls of the
council chamber was ever witnessed
in St. Paul before. Not only did thesa
three aldermen who owe what ad-
vancement they have received to the
Democratic party, desert it, but two"
of them, Aid. Ehrmanntraut and Aid.
Wolf, had the unparalleled effrontery.
to rise from their seats and make . .
speeches in defense of their dastardly
conduct. Representatives of that ele
ment which Aid. Wolf has been pleased
to term the "young Democracy," but
who, in reality, are in politics for rev-.
enue only, applauded these speech
but their applause was hissed down
by the respectable element of the Dem
ocratic party present. *»r' -
The following account of what ac«
tualy took place yesterday afternoon
bears its own comment. Words .cannot
emphasize It.
It was drama in three acts. The as-
sembly appeared in the first act, and
what a love feast it was! Bluff and
boisterous Tim Reardon nominated
John Copeland for president. Every,
assemblyman seconded the nomination, •
conscious that there are no bolters in
this body, and three of the members-
Messrs. Parker, Reardon and Johnson
—escorted Mr. Copeland to the chair
after he was -elected. This was per- .
haps' the one; sincere performance "of ■
the .entire drama, for it was univer-
sally conceded that John Copeland had
.made an admirable presiding officer
during the past year. President Cope-
. land thanked the assemblymen -In a.
straightforward, sincere speech. > , The*)
the five Republicans, who managed the
stage during the first act, compliment-
ed Mr. Van Slyke by electing him vice'
president of this -august .body. After
much applause and a few specialties
illustrating j the need of $3,000 with"
which to buy a library for the steam- *
ship St. Paul," and the necessity of at
once paving South, Robert street, tha
curtain fell amid a dead silence.
By this time the house was full. Tha
gallery of the chamber was black with
people, and the floor outside the par*
quette circle, as It were, was
The parquette proper was also occu-
pied by a large number of gentlemen,
some of whom were recognized as of-
ficeholders, ex-officeholders and mem«
hereof the undying committeeof forty.
The second act disclosed the board of
aldermen in session. Every member
was in his seat. The actors were not
so collected as their predecessors. Aid.
Wolf, to begin with, anticipated his
cue and at once shouted: "I nominate.
Aid. Ehrmanntraut for president." .
Aid. Murphy, naturally, responded
by nominating Aid. Brady, whom he
considered had demonstrated during
the past year that he was a "com-
petent, cool and fair" presiding officer/
Ald.Markham then reminded the board
that a temporary chairman should be
selected first, and named Aid. Brady,
who was thereupon chosen.
Then the plot of this dirty drama -
began to unfold. The ballot for presi-
dent of. the board of aldermen resulted
in seven votes for Ehrmanntraut and
four for Brady. The spectators mar-
veled much, but those on the inside
understood the deal, for deal it was.

to the contrary." 7"'
"Joe" Ehrmanntraut made a brief
speech of thanks, in the course of
which he said that he would make no
promises, which were dangerous things
In politics, and would preside Impar
tially. Then there was more "dumb
show." Aid. Montgomery, the ac-
complished sphinx of the board, was
nominated for vice president to offset
the election of Vice President Van
Slyke. ln tho assembly. Aid. Brady
nominated Aid. Hare, and though the
latter gentleman was compelled to
i allow his name, to be voted for, he an-
nounced that he saw through tha
scheme, and that they were
The curtain descended upon the sec- -.
ond act, with a premonitory thud.
The plot began to grow transparent.
When it rose on Act 111., the great
common council— a score in all— was
discovered sitting in solemn session.
Three of its members have since been
discovered bartering their political
birthrights for a mean mess of por-
ridge. . ■» -■:'-•'•' -'
Assemblyman Parker played tho
role of temporary chairman. The first .
scene demanded the election of a pre-
siding officer. Mr. Strouse nominated
Assemblyman Robb. Mr. Lewis, who
Is suspected of being a Republican, in
spite of his broad gauge treatment of
Democratic measures, arose and nomi
nated J. J. Parker. Mr. Parker, one of
the eight Democratic members of tha
council who is loyal to his party, da*
clined the nomination for the good
reason that Mr. Robb was the choice
of the . caucus. The applause that
greeted Mr. Parker's announcement
was, not Intended as a compliment to
Mr. Lewis, whose attempt to induce
Mr. .Parker to repudiate the caucus
failed. The clerk was then Instructed
to cast the ballot of the common coun
cil for Mr. Robb, , which was done and
Mr. Robb thereupon assumed the chah\
and thanked the council.
'.. Then there was a quick. change and
the : absorbing scene of the play waa
ushered in. Mr. Strouse. one of thosa
sterling, unswerving, fearless Demo- -
crats of whom a party can justly be
proud, nominated Thomas A. Prender-
gast for city clerk. In making thia
nomination, Mr. Strouse said:
