Probability That Campbell Will
Be Chosen as Gube*-*iatorial
SPRINGFIELD, 0., Aug. 20.— The
district and other preliminary meet
ings of the Democratic state con
vention were held here today,' pre
paratory to the assembling of the
convention at 10 a. m. tomorrow.
Senator Brice reached Lima from
New York yesterday and \ arrived
here today. He is making the fight
of his life for a platform in con
formity with the views of-' President
Cleveland, Secretary Carlisle and
himself on the financial question. He
is not taking an aggressive part
for the nomination of governor or
other officers, but is interested in
the organization so as to control the
committee on credentials, which .will
determine the contests, and the com
mittee on resolutions, which will re
port the plafbrm. He. has a large ma
jority of the 80S delegates with him,
but the free silver men claim 304
of the delegates to make
trouble if no concessions are made
to them. The delegates are all here
and the question is as to what con
cessions shall be made to the minor
ity. This afternoon Senator Brice,
ex-Gov. Cambbell and other lead
ers responded; to calls for speeches
as the clubs paraded by the Lagonda
hotel. At that time Gen. Asa S.
Bushnell, the Republican candidate,
happened to be calling on Brice,
Campbell and others. He also re
sponded, welcoming his political op
ponents to the city. The silver men
held meetings again today to secure
indorsements for their resolution,
but while they were making speeches
the Brice men secured the organiza
tion of the convention, carrying six
teen of the twenty-one districts in
the selection of members of the vari
ous committees. The committee on
resolutions is composed of. business
men like President Ingalls, of the
Big Four; ex-Congressman McMahon
Hurd, Vance and Achaur, as fol

The Brlce men also secured a major

which holds over until after the selec
tion of presidential delegates next
year, as follows: . r*:.-'-"

E. Bruce; Third, Joseph H. Dowling;

Today Senator Brice, ex-Gov. Camp
bell and other leaders died with Mr.
Thomas, and it is understood that a
compromise was made though it will
not be mads known what the leaders
did until after their plans are de
veloped ln the convention tomorrow.
Senator Brice is the temporary chair
man of the convention and his key
note speech is sure to be for "honest
money," without regard to ....e outcome
of the fight for organization of the
convention. His speech will .be con
servative. Immediately after its de
livery will come the reports of the
committee on credentials, the majority
for seating contesting Brice men and
the minority for seating the free silver
contestants. In considering these re
ports the senator may have some close
ruling, and the silver men may get
mad. It is at this juncture of the pro
ceedings that the contest between the
free silver and Brice men is expected,
although the latter had things their
way today.
When the committee on resolutions
met tonight ex-Congressman Frank
Hurd, who is as strong for a gold
standard as for free trade, was made
chairman, and it was found. that J. M.
Lewis, of the Eighth, P. W. Patrick, of
the Seventeenth, and E. J. Blandin, of
the Twenty-first district, were the only
.ree silver men on that committee of
twenty-one members. The other com
mittees were all strongly Brice organi
zations. The strongest showing of
the opposition on any of them was
sixteen for Brice and the federal ad
ministration to five of the opposition,
including the free silver men and
other elements. The committee on res
olutions appointed a sub-committe? of
five to draw up a platform, on which
the opposition was given a representa
tive and which was instructed to re
affirm the national financial plank 'of
1892, which Senator Brice says the pres
iuent and Secretary Carlisle had in
terpreted to mean a gold standard. It
was also Instructed to indorse the tar
iff bill passed by the last congress and
the national administration, anu. the
record of Senator Brice. Strong
speeches were made for the resolu
tion of the silver men, but it was not
incorporated in* the instructions to the
framers of the platform. It will be in
corporated in the minority report of
Blandin, Lewis and Katrick, and it is
thought the vote will be 600 for the
majority report and 200 for the minor
ity report. The platform will arraign
Gov. McKinley's state administration
severely and point to = the revival of
business as the? effect of Demacratic
rule" and legislation,, and to the de
pression of 1893 and 1894 as the effect
of previous Republican legislation.
T*e »*Sent Republican- legislatures
The recent Republican legislatures

The Brice men controlled all the
committees, but did not exercise their
power in unseating- opponents in the
committee on credentials. They made
Senator Brice permanent as : well as
temporary chairman of the conven
tion, and continued the temporary or
ganization throughout. ' So far as the
ticket is concerned the talk tonight is
for nothing but for the old tickets of
1889 and 1891, which named Campbell
for governor and Marquis for lieuten
ant governor. It Is understood to
night that ex-Gov. Campbell has been
assured of such financial and other
support as to secure his acceptance.
Just before Senator Brice arrived at
11 a. m. the city was flooded with
•"lodgers bearing the following resolu
tion adopted at the meeting of silver
delegates: "We favor the immediate
restoration of the law provided for in
the constitution." The silver men met
Senator Brice and pledged him they
had no fight on him, and all they
wanted was this plank. The senator
and his friends are noncommittal, and
want all to wait for the regular re
port. On the arrival of the train bear
ing ex-Gov. Campbell at noon, Camp
bell badges were distributed broadcast
in anticipation of his nomination.

Coxey Threatens to Give Up His
Ohio Home.
GUTHRIE, O. T., Aug. 20.— Gen. J.
S. Coxey, Populist candidate for gov
ernor of Ohio, is, according to the
statement of a leading Oklahoma poli
tician, after the congressional nomi
nation from this territory. His recent
trip to the Southwest, it is now said
by prominent Populists here, was not
alone for speech-making, but for the
purpose of looking over the field pre
paratory to taking up his residence
here. It Is said he was very well
pleased with the outlook before he
left for the East, and it is understood
he will return to Oklahoma after the
Ohio election, if he is not elected gov
ernor, and run for congress next fall.
Six of a Pleasure Party of Thir-
teen Escape Drowning-*.
BUFFALO, N. V., Aug. 20.— 8y the
capsizing of the small pleasure yacht
Rung Brothers this evening, seven
men of the thirteen on board were
drowned. That there was not a
greater loss of life is due to the
nearness of the tug E. C. Maytham
and the quickness of the life-saving
crew in getting to the scene. Those
drowned were: 77:7- ■
' FRANK BUGGMANN, married.
JACOB BAUMANN, married and
had three children.
Fireman, name unknown.
Stranger, name unknown.
The members of the party were em
ployes of the East Buffalo live stock
yards. A strong wind , was blowing,
which made a heavy sea, and as the
boat was entering the harbor a heavy
sea swept over her, completely en
gulfing boat and all on board. Most
of the life preservers were loose and
easily grabbed by those who had the
opportunity or the presence of mind
to do so. The skylight over the engine
was floated off as the boat sank, and
this was seized by some of the men.
Two men grabbed one life preserver
and went down.
8 The tug E. C. Maytham happened to
be passing near the scene of the acci
dent and rescued four of the men from
the waves. Two members of the life-
saving service were also near by grap
pling for the body of Charles Gilllg,
who was drowned Sunday, and they
succeeded In saving two half-drowned
members of the excursion party.
These were all who were rescued,
though search for the others was con
tinued up to a late hour. The Rung
Brothers was an open pleasure launch,
built two years ago by Burley Bros.,
of this city, by whom she was owned.
She was fifty-seven feet long by ten
feet four inches beam, and was listed
to carry twenty-three persons. At the
time of the disaster she was engineered
by L. J. Burley, one of the owners.
The latter claims that the steering
gear went wrong at the time of making
the turn.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 20.— The
gold syndicate today prevented the
gold reserve" from falling below the
$100,000,000 mark. About 2 o'clock
the treasury department was in
formed that $2,850,000 in gold . had
been withdrawn for export from the
sub-treasury in New York. As the
gold reserve at the close of busi
ness today stood at $102,527,146, the
withdrawal would have reduced the
reserve to $99,677,148*. A few min
utes afterward, however, Acting Sec
retary Curtis received a telegram
saying that Pierpont Morgan, of the
syndicate, had deposited $2,000,000
in gold in exchange for greenbacks.
This deposit swelled the reserve to
$101,677,148. The officials at the de-'

Langhorne is of medium height, with
dark hair, regular features, expressive (
as to the gold reserve, and intimate )
that the syndicate will continue* to '
make deposits to offset withdrawals.. '
But they decline to express their rea- J
sons for their faith, and the ques- '
tion raised constantly is as to the !
pledge under which the syndicate J
making these deposits, and the
period it covers, as well as the ability
of the syndicate to continue to pro
tect the reserve. But little light can
be shed on these questions, however,
as it is said that probably only two
government officials.President Cleve
land and Secretary Carlisle, know
the unwritten part of the agreement j
made with the syndicate which se
cured the last issue of bonds.
The syndicate has so far voluntarily
deposited about $8,000,000 in gold. .The]
manner in which the syndicate has ac
cumulated the gold which it has vol
untarily exchanged at the treasury for'
greenbacks is not absolutely known—
the syndicate does not make public its
operations but at the treasury depart
ment it is believed most of it is ob
tained by giving "exchange on San.
Francisco and by buying bullion* !
checks. The circulation in San
Francisco is practically all gold. The
movement of money is East, as a re-
suit of which San Francisco exchange |
on New York is usually at a premium' •
equal to the cost of transportation of '
gold across the continent. For the I
same reason New York exchange on
San Francisco is often at a slight" dis- I
count, although -just now it is at par. |
By offering exchange on San Fran- !
Cisco, therefore, the syndicate can ac- j
cumulate large quantities of gold- in
San Francisco at . practically no ex-/ j
pense. The syndicate can also procure |
gold by buying bullion checks issued
for bullion deposited at the assay of
fices ' '■-* and :•' the . government , mints.
These, at the present time," when there'
is a demand for gold, bring a slight
premium. It is not believed that the
syndicate is put to much expense in ac
cumulating in this fashion practically
the -entire; product of the American
gold mines, which averages usually
about $35,000,000 a year. ££{•; 'A .

Miss Beveridge is the granddaugh

The family used to live here, but
went East, where the beautiful sev
enteen-year-old daughter went mad
on.the subject of acting, joined Rose
J Coghlan's company and fell in love
with Charles. They were married
somewhere in Ohio some weeks later
lat midnight. The next morning
every one was startled, : because it
j was well known that Charles had
j another wife. Miss Coghlan refused
to recognize the marriage, and after
six months Mr. and Mrs. Charles

a woman, who, although young, has
been for years the belle of her native
state, and used to receiving the hom
age of all* the men of her acquaint
ance. When the naval vessels of the
world gathered at Hampton roads in
the spring of 1894 Miss Langhorne was
the bright particular star of a bevy
of ladies which charmed and dazzled
the foreign officers. She was feted,
toasted and received more attention
than any other woman at the roads.
, Mr. Gibson has delighted to contrast
the sweets of love-making with the
to be with her parents in Germany.
"I do not think it was infatuation,"
: said Miss Coghlan, in speaking of
j the painful incident, "that brought
' about the misfortune, for the causes
of the marriage were whisky and
the baroness. Charles had been tak
ing intoxicants for months, - and
when he was in that state his mind
was so shattered that he was al
most insane. Surely if he had been
in his right senses he would not
have had such a wild midnight mar
riage as that. It would have been
vastly different if they two together
had done this alone, but the baroness
consented and assisted, when she,
who was supposedly -in her right
mind, should have known better. I
make no ■ excuse for Charles, except
that he had been drinking.
j "I feel sorry for Miss Beveridge,
for she was young and without force

talent as a sculptress, although she
will never be able to succeed on the
stage. Miss ■ Beveridge was a very
nice, pretty girl in my company, and
her mother, the Baroness Yon Wrede,
always . traveled with her. If Miss
Beveridge had been alone with me
I probably would have taken her
under my wing, but as she already
had a chaperon, I was relieved of
any responsibility that I might have

i that the governor, shall have power
to remit fines and forfeitures, to grant
reprieves, commutations and pardons
after conviction for all offenses except
treason, and cases of impeachment;
provided, that in all cases where the
sentence of the court is capital pun
ishment, imprisonment for life of for
a longer term than two years or for a
fine exceeding $200, no pardon shall
be granted or sentence commuted or
fine remitted except upon the recom
mendation in writing with the reasons
therefor, after a full hearing in open
session.of said board of pardons,
recommendations of said board shall
be filed in the office of the secretary
of state. Taylor was sentenced to
serve a term of five years' imprison
ment, and it will be seen by this that
the governor will have no more au
thority to pardon Taylor than the
senator himself. 777 :".:- ?■ - 7

PIERRE, S. D., Aug. 20.— Emmit Cole,
the discharged employe of the office of
the census department, today published
the following affidavit: 7. 7-, ;•
Pierre, S. D., Aug. 20.— the 12th
day of March, 1895, I was appointed as
clerk In the office of the commissioner
of labor statistics and the census. On
the loth I was discharged from said po
sition for "insubordination." and "in
competency," to which I plead guilty.
I desire to say. however, if the court
please, that the insubordination consists
in the fact that I would not deliver to
S. A. Wheeler, commissioner of labor
statistics, etc., a. large portion of my
salary as a rake off for boodle, to
which I thought he was in no wise
entitled, and further, that the incom
petency consists in not being able to
comprehend the sculduggery of bood
lers or attempted boodlers, which seems
to be epidemic in this state.
Subscribed and sworn to before me
this 20th day of August, 1895.
S. C. Yarnell, Notary Public, South
Dakota. ■ AC: ,"***- . •
Since Cole's affidavit has been pub
lished Commissioner Wheeler has filed
tha following answer for publication:
Pierre, S. D., Aug. 20.— 1n reply to
the affidavit of Emmit Cole I will only
say he is a poor creature whom I kept
in my employ out of sympathy for his
family and paid him $100 per month for
nearly five months, and in all of which
time he never really did $50 worth of
work, and when I could tolerate him
no longer and paid him every cent that
was coming to him, he was mad, and,
not having anything else for an ex
cuse for being dismissed, he makes this
affidavit, which is false, every word of
it. S. A. WHEELER.
The State's Theory in Regard to
the Case.
20.— The theory of the state in the
alleged murder of Clara Ober, for
which crime J. Fruend has been held
for trial, is that she was taken to the
mill pond, where her body was found,
chloroformed and thrown into the
water. It is said that the physicians
who examined the body found cvi-
dences of the use of chloroform;" that
some cotton batting, was found near
the mill pond, and that a !' bottle con-
taining chloroform, and also some
cotton batting, have * been' found in
pruend's " place . of business. It is
thought that she was induced to take
a ride by either Fruend or an accom-
plice, in the belief that she was to be
taken away from Blue Earth City to
some place where she was not known,
and that, instead of taking her away,
she was murdered. It is said that an-
other person is under suspicion as an
accomplice. It will not be surprising
if an additional arrest is made within
a short time.

GRAND RAPIDS, M!ch.,Aug. 20.—
The fast express known the the
"Flyer," on the Chicago & West
Michigan read, leaving Chicago at
5 o'clock and arriving here at 10:40
p. m., was held up by five men in a
piece of woods just before crossing
the Kalamazoo river at 9 o'clock to
night. The train -was flagged - by.
swinging a white light across the
track, and when it stopped Conduc
tor E. E. Rice, of this city, stepped
out on the platform of the baggage
car, and, seeing two of the robbers,
asked, "What's the matter?" The
reply was two shots from their re
volvers. At the same time other
shots were fired into the engineer's
cab, and a moment later two men
climbed on the engine and ordered
the engineer and fireman to set the
brakes and keep quiet. When the
train stopped the brakeman, Timo
thy Murphy, of this city, jumped off
the rear platform and started back
with a lantern, as required by the
rules. The fifth robber, standing
alongside the coach, fired three
shots at the brakeman, one of which
hut him in the side, struck a rib and
glanced out, making a serious flesh
wound. He dropped into the ditch,
where he remained until the robbers
had gone.
Conductor Rice, after a bullet
whizzed past his head, retreated into
the baggage car and ?■* : threw his
pocketbook over behind the trunks.
Without demanding admission the
robbers placed dynamite under the
side door, blew it off and sprang
into the car with the remark: "We
want all you've got here." They or
dered the conductor and baggage
man and express messenger to throw
up their mands, and went through
their pockets, taking $7.50 in change"
from the conductor, but finding noth
ing except watches on the others.
They then tackled the safe and blew
it open in less than thirty seconds.
It contained no valuables; the mes
senger, having gone out in the after
noon, was returning on a "dead"
trip. They took watches from the
engineer and fireman, but when the
conductor said he would need his
watch it was handed back to him,
and saying good-night, the robbers
took to the woods. The passengers—
j forty-eight of them— were not molest-
I cd. To make sure of a halt, ties
had been piled on the track half a
j length of where the engine stopped.
The baggage car was not disabled
and the train proceeded. The train-
men cannot give a good description
of the robbers. The leader was a
heavy man, who wore a full beard,
and another was dressed like a farm-
er. None of them wore masks, but
those who boarded the engine con-
cealed their features as much" as

SCRANJON, Pa., Aug. Attorney
Cornelius Smith filed a suit today
against President Judge R. W. Archi-
bald, Superior Court Judge E. N. Wil-
lard, and his partner and son-in-law,
Maj. Everett Warren, ex-Congressman
Lemuel Ammerman, ex-City Solicitor
I. H. Burns, Myron Kasson and ex-
County Detective Thomas E. Reynolds
and the Lehigh Valley Railroad com-
pany. The action is brought by Mr.
Smith as counsel for John G. Jennings,
and the damages asked are $100,000.
j The case grows out of the well-known
Jennings suit. The plaintiff's minor
son, James Jennings, was injured in
the Mud Run disaster on the Lehigh
Valley, on Oct. 10, 1888, and brought
suit for $50,000 damages. At the same
time his father brought an action to
recover damages for the loss of his
son's services. The elder Jennings is
now under bail on a ; charge of per-
jury, based - upon allegations made
against officials of the court in an af
fidavit filed when his case was called
for trial last May. Attorney Smith
then went to the supreme court for a
mandamus to compel the lower court
to discharge his client on common
bu.<, and in doing so he made charges
which induced City Solicitor Burns to
sue him for $30,000 damages for libel
a few weeks ago.' In today's suit Mr.
Smith avers that the defendants con-
spired to hinder, delay and defeat his
actions, although his client was en-
titled to recover damages.
