The evidence for the plaintiff in the action
brought by the Irish-American bank against
the American Savings and Loan association
will take a rather startling turn some time
during the introduction of the evidence for
the plantiff in an affidavit in which forgery
Is charged.
In looking up the notes held as collaterel
It was discovered that there were three
notes bearing the signature of Mrs. J. R.
Corrigan. When the notes were presented
for payment, Mrs. Corrigan at once denied
them, and afterward she stated that she
would swear that they wero not notes of
her making. She was very diffident about
coming into court, however, and wanted to
get some way out of that publicity if pos
sible. It was finally agreed by both parties,
the defense consenting to the move, that her
disposition might be taken and used for the
purposes of the trial.
The pjalntiffs attorneys have tho affidavit
ready to produce, and it states positively
that the notes are forgeries. The matter Is
all the more significant when it is consid
ered that J. R. Corrigan left the city some
time ago under a cloud, and that his wife
obtained a divorce from him not long after
ward. The affidavit will be used in showing
the value of securities.

Numerous Bridal Couples Made Hap
py—General News of the Mill
The conference committee, composed
of the members of the Grand Army of
the Republic, the Knights of Pythias
and the Carnival Association, held a
meeting yesterday afternoon at the
Commercial Club. An enthusiastic
handful of men of the sort who always
do the work in big events was present,
and a fine program of entertainment
was mapped out for encampment week.
The G. A. R. was represented by Judge
Rea, William B. Roberts and Judge
Daniel Fish; the K. P. by Col.
Wheaton, Mayor Pratt and Robert
Stratton, while Secretary Danforth
stood for the Carnival Association and
the Commercial Club.
The G. A. R. contingent, which was
appointed by the St. Paul committee
to work in harmony with the other or
ganizations In the matter of providing
entertainment during the great Pyth
ian celebration, appeared well satis
fied with the arrangements now under
way by the K. P. and Carnival peo
ple. In fact the old soldiers feel that
theirs is but to do and die if needs be
to make the encampment the glorious
success that has been promised.
As a result of yesterday's conference,
the great parade of the G. A. R. vet
erans will be held Wednesday, Sept.
6, in St. Paul, and all Pythian attrac
tions will be scratched off the pro
gramme for that day to give the vis
iting knights and the thousands of
strangers who will be in the city, as
well as Minneapolis people, a chance
to see the grandest parade in all the
world. Then on the following day,
Thursday, Sept. 3, the great parade of
the uniformed knights will be held in
Minneapolis, when the same courteous
inducements to witness the parade will
be held out to the G. A. R. veterans
and the people of St. Paul.
It is proposed to make the day In
Minneapolis one long to be remembered
by the old soldiers. Reviewing stands
will be erected for the express benefit
of the veterans, and they will be ena
bled to witness a grand military spec
tacle directed by civilians. This ar
rangement will doubtless be so much
of a novelty to the G. A. R. hosts that
they will all come to Minneapolis oa
K. P. parade day. The parade will
comprise city and state officials in car
riages, and Commander-in-Chief Walk
er, of the G. A. R., has been asked to
take part.
In the evening the entire city will be
expected to turn out to a grand camp
fire to be tendered the veterans at the
exposition building. The carnival as
sociation and the K. P. decorating com
mittee will make the line of march
brilliant with special decorations and
fire displays, and a series of demonstra
tions will take place at the various re
viewing stands.
Crook Unearths a New Scheme for
Inspectors Courtney and Morrlssey yester
day arrested a man giving the name of C.
E. Hamilton, charged with obtaining money
under false pretenses. He professeß to be
connected with Forepaugh and Sells Broth
ers' circus, and by that manner is said to
have made contracts with local meat mer
chants for supplying that traveling aggrega
tion on their contemplated visit to this city.
The ofHcers state the prisoner visited the
market of Witts Brothers, Nicollet avenue
and Fourth street, and contracted for $91
worth of goods. He is alleged to have said
to the dealers that their price was low and
that he would allow them one cent more per
Eound, and that differences would be divided
etween the meat dealers and himself, al
though he would turn into the manager of the
circus a bill for the entire amount On the
strength of that he was given a check for a
small amount. He Is charged with doing a
similar work with the Columbia Meat Mar
ket, Washington avenue south.
There arose a suspicion that the contractor
was not an authorized agent and the police
were notified. They located the prisoner in
a Jewelry store, where he had purchased a
watch charm and was tendering the check
of Witt Brothers in payment. He was ar
rested and taken to the Central station.
Asked for his credential, he produced a bill
of lading" and railroad transportation, made
out as belonging to the circus managers. The
latter, who were in St. Paul, were summoned
to this city. They denied that Hamilton had
any authority to effect contracts for them.
The ticket and bill of lading were claimed as
theirs, and it is thought the prisoner secured
them through the mails, as a portion of the
latter has been missing of late. The agents
for the circus stated they have had consid
erable trouble of late by bogus contractors,
especially in lowa and Ohio. An attempt
will be made to fasten upon the prisoner the
charge of tampering with the malls.

The council committee on sewers which
met Tuesday recommended that the contract
for supplying 500,000 of aewer brick should

Stumbled Across Traces of a Village

Relics which prove the existence of
an Indian village were discovered by
J. Wolford about five miles Northeast
of this place yesterday afternoon. Wol

of a stream which flows into the Mul

clump of cedars, when his ax struck
the hull of a canoe, which was com
pletely covered by moss and mud.
Dropping his ax, he pulled away the
moss until he had uncovered the boat.
The canoe was four feet wide and
eighteen feet long, and would comfort

Wolford found a stone knife, about ten
inches long, with a finely carved
handle; stone hatchet, shaped like a

Bitter End,
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., June 24.—The
Democratio state convention was the
largest ever held in the state. The
party primaries and the convention
preliminaries had been prolific of con
tests and contentions. The silver sen
timent had developed rapidly and the
advocates of free coinage had with
comparative ease captured a con
trolling Interest in the convention. But
the gold standard Democracy, In a
minority and caught napping, wak
ened to a vigorous resistance. Of the
1,747 delegates, the silver men, at first
complacent in a two-thirds majority,
found the minority so vigorous, that
they determined to use their power
mercilessly and the only advantage
claimed by the gold men at the open
ing of the convention was due to cir
cumstances which the silver men over
looked or could not control.
The silver men captured everything,
instructing their Chicago delegates to
stand through thick and thin by the
most extreme sliver deliverance and
the nomination of Claude E. Matthew*
to the presidency. The candidate for
governor, Mr. Shiveloy, appeared after
he had been declared the nominee and
made a vigorous speech giving special
attention to the silver plank.
The nominations were made as fol

The convention was called to order
af 10 o'clock, Robert.Cißell was chosen
to preside. Two reports were presented
by the committee ■ credentials, that
of a majority seating most of the sil
ver contestants was adopted.
The committee on resolutions offered
the following platform:
We reaffirm bur adherence to the
faithful Democratic doctrine of bimetal
lism and therefore, we demand the im
mediate-restoration of bimetallism by
the free and unrestricted coinage of
both silver and gold, as primary money,
at the ratio of 16 to 1, without waiting
for the cooperation of Great Britain
or any other foreign r power, all such
coinage to be full legal tender In pay
ment of all debts, public or private.
We believe the existing tariff laws
will be fully equal to Tall deinaaid ] for
needed revenue for' 7the expenses' of
government? economically 1 administered,
under the conditions which wjll, arise
from the ''restoration of bimetallism.
We are opposed to the redemption and
final cancellation of United States
notes (greenbacks) for any other notes,
or certificates issued by the United
State's "to circulate as money, "such re
demption and cancellation necessarily
involving an increase of the public •
debt by the issdfe of bonds and the re
duction of the currency. We demand
a sufficient, stable volume of money,
gold, silver and paper to meet the re
quirements of our ever growing popu
lation and the constant increase of our
productive industry.
We protect against the increase of the
public debt by.the Issue of interest
bearing bonds or otherwise, in a time
of peace, and.if the redemption clause
of the so-called Sherman resumption
act of 1875 authorizes, as It is claimed; •
the right of the treasury department
to issue interest bearing bonds, with
out limit, without the'jexpress and and
definite authority oJf;t congress as to
each issue of such bonds, we demand
that the provisions of such act be un
conditionally repeated." The Demo
cratic party has neverbeUeved that the
public debt was a public blessing.
We demand that .obligations of the
government of every form be paid, and
be redeemed in conformity with the
laws under which thsy were issued, in
cqin, gold and silver, ;&t the option of
the government of th^ United States,
and not at the option of the creditor.
We believe that the pension is a
vested right. We heartily endorse the
rule of Commissioner Murphy that no
name shall be arbitrarily dropped from
the rolls, and the fact of enlistment
and service should be deemed conclu
sive evidence against prior disease and
disability. We believe that public war
exists in Cuba, and that the parties
thereto ought to be accorded all the
rights of belligerents.
The platform closes as follows: We
earnestly commend Gov. Matthews, in
full confidence of success, at the elec
tion to the Democracy of the United
States, as a candidate for the presi
dency, and the delegates from Indiana
to the national convention are hereby
Instructed to cast their vote in his
favor for president, first, last and all
the time, an,d to use all honorable ef
forts to secure his nomination.
The thirty delegates strictly to re
present the Democracy of Indiana in
the Chicago national convention are
instructed to vote as. a unit upon all
questions involving platform or candi
date in the convention.
While the platform was being read
there was applause and the reference
to free silver was the occasion for the
greatest cheering of the day.
When it was moved, that the previous
question be demanded"/ and the plat
form adopted, there /was a wild scene.
Ex-Congressman By*rium rose to pro
test, but was cried'djpwn, and the plat
form was adopted. ' f
3enator Turpie arjpeai-ed on the plat
form. He was wildly' cheered. Mr.
Bynum again protested and demanded
that Chairman Bell'reid the rules. Fin
ally when Mr. Tufjrfs proceeded, he
spoke In favor of free silver. He said
that silver had been 'degraded by legis
lation and It could be restored in the
same way. When Senator Turpie had
concluded his remafkS. Mr. Byrium's
friends again demanded he be heard.
Then the confusion'became so Intense
that one delegate demanded that the
galleries be cleared*. *> He was cried
down. l n
While dozens of delegates were on
their feet, endeavoring to attract the
chair's attention, in the midst of. this
unusual scene, the chair announced
that the roll call would be begun for

the nomination of a governor. The
roll call could not be proceeded with,
however, and the convention was in a
state of chaos. After Mr. Bynum had
maintained his stand In the aisle he vol
untarily returned to his seat. Ex-Con
gressman John E. Lamb then moved
that Mr. Bynum be heard for five min
utes. The chairman ordered two serge
ants-at-arms to clear the aisle. They
were proceeding to do bo, when they
were opposed by the police. There was
•a riotous scene, and it looked for a few
minutes as though Kilkenny times
w«se at hand.
Chairman Bell made a pacifying
speech. He said he had no choice in the
matter. If it was the will of the con
vention that Mr. Bynum be heard he
had no voice against him. Mr. Lamb's
motion to suspend the rules for five
minutes and listen to Mr. Bynum called
. forth a demand for a roll call. Mr.
Bynum received two-thirds vote and
was escorted to the platform. Mr. By
num said:
"I propose to offer as an amendment
for the first resolution of the platform
the declaration enunciated by the Dem
ocratic national convention in 1892,
holding to the use of both gold and sil
ver as the standard money of the coun
try. This resolution was adopted by
the last Democratic national conven
tion by a most overwhelming vote. An
amendment was offered In the conven
tion to insert the word 'free' before
'coinage' of both gold and silver and it
was overwhelmingly defeated. The
subsequent action of that convention in
nominating Grover Cleveland with bis
well-known views removed all doubts
as to that platform. Indiana, with the
full knowledge of the position of Mr.
Cleveland, Indorsed him as a candi

if under this banner, inscribed with
this principle, in the hands of a man
that was never known to capitulate
for terms or cease to wage warfare
until victory was done, we won the
greatest political triumph in 1892—why
should we turn our backs upon that
resolution now?"
Nominations were then declared in
order. The names of Benjamin F.
Shively and Gilbert F. Shanklln were
proposed for governor. Mr. Shanklln
arose and said he was not a candidate
and seconed the nomination of Shively.
j Mr. Bynum named W. Hooper
I for governor. Shively was nominated
j on the ballot and after completing the
I ticket as given above the convention
, adjourned.

chorus of congratulation that comes to you
from a.ll over the nation. We come from

count It a very great honor, as well as a very
great pleasure, to receive this visit from
the Republican editors of the state of Mich
| lgan. I have noted for many years the ability
, of the press of your state. I have noted that
- the Rpublican press has never faltered in its
loyalty to the Republican principles, and un
der all circumstances has been faithful to the
Republican cause; nor have I permitted to
pass unobserved the very friendly personal
spirit which has been shown me for long
years by the Republican editors of your state.
During the discussion "preceding the Repub
lican national convention your partiality was
so strongly marked and so generous that I
canot forbear to thank you."
"In this great national contest you will
have very much to do with the result, and I
am sure the editors of the state of Michigan,
the Republican editors, can be counted upon
to give to those great principles of our party
their best efforts this year, as they have al
ready dene in the years of the past. It has
given both Mrs. McKinley and myself gen
uine pleasure to have you in our home. We
bid you all welcome." (Applause.)
The stacks of congratulatory letters that
came to Gov. McKinley today was larger
. than ever bdltffe. Gov. Bradley, writing from
I Frankfort,-,Kjy., to Hon. William McKinley,
•said, In part:
"Allow rhe to congratulate you on. your
success. I have no doubt you will be tri
umphantly elected and that you will come
fully up to the expectations of your friends
in the discharge of every duty which may be
presented. I shall not fail to do my duty in
the approaching contest. I remain, your
friend, W. O. Bradley,"

MONTREAI, June 24. — According to the
latest election returns, the Liberals now have
a clear majority over all other factions of 22.
The complexion of the new house Is as
follows: Liberals. 118; Conservatives, 83; In
dependents, 11; election to be held, 1; total,
213. New elections will have to be held In
two constituencies, as Laurier and McCar
thy ran in two divisions and were elected
In both, but can represent only one.
A great many surprises were occasioned
by the results in the various provinces. Que
bec went strongly against the government,
While Ontario, where a regular revolution
was predicted, stood by Sir Charles Tupper
i better than any other section of the country.
I British Columbia, the Northwest Territory,
Manitoba, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick
each gave a stronger Liberal representation
than in the last house, while Prince Ed
ward Increased the Conservative contingent
from that province.
In Quebec, Messrs. Tallon, postmaster gen
eral; Angers, president of the council, and
Desjardines, minister of public works, all
met their Waterloo. But three Conservatives
were elected out of the eight Beats on the
island of Montreal.
In New Brunswick, the old and esteemed
Liberal veteran, A. H. Glllmore, was de
feated in Charlotte, while Col. Domville,
Liberal, captured Hon. George O. Foster's
old seat in Kings.
Hon. J. W. Longley was defeated in An
napolis and Joseph Martin in Winnipeg.
The premier was elected In Cape Breton;
Mr. Laurier in Quebec east and Saskatche
wan; Dalton McCarthy in Brandon and In
North Simcoe. A special feature of the
flght in Nova Scotia was the capture of
Cumberland by the Liberals, coupled with
the defeat of Hon. A. R. Dickey, the min
ister of Justice.
Emdoned Bnt Not Without Some
AUSTIN, Texas, June 24.—The silver state
convention reassembled this morning and after
several hours- discussion adopted their plat
form, on which a row was precipitated last
night. It di>vlareß for free coinage regardless
of foreign qouiurles. The platform also con
demns Republican fallacies.
The convention decided the matter of send
ing delegates; to Chicago by voting to send
eight delegates Instead of four, and selected
John N. Duncan, John W. Blake, Congress
man Bailey, Gov. C. A. Culberson, John -H.
Reagan, E. C. Senter, Horace Chilton and ex-
Gov. Hogg, Travis county. Congressional dis
trict delegates were also elected.
At this point much commotion was occas
ioned by tne appearance of a huge picture of
Bland coming down the center aisle of the
convention hall, and at the same time Col.
Shepard advanced to the stage and moved to
Indorse Bland for the presidency. This mo
tion was received with deafening cheers and
Senator Chilton rushed to the platform to
oppose it. Col. John Duncan also opposed
the Indorsement of Bland, and favored indors
ing ex-Gov. Hogg for the presidency. A gen
eral row ensued and the supporters of the
state administration and Hogg raised Cain in
their opposition to Bland. After much dis
cussion Bland was finally Instructed for, al
most unanimously. Messages were sent to
conventions In Ohio and Indiana informing
them that Texas had sent a straight out silver
delegation to Chicago.

from the state are also advocates of tbe white

and Hal Lewis. The chairman of the platform
committee will be J. W. Robertson. The plat
form will declare unqualifiedly for the free
and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio
of 16 to 1. .The conservative element has
gained one -cms two trifling victories in the or
ganization. BM& they have succeeded in pre
venting any wholesale denunciation of the ad
minlstratioii.'Jfctich was the aim of the rad
icals. The platform will, however, condemn
the bond issbe and touch adversely on the
policies of President Cleveland.

WHEELING, W. Va., June 24.—Re
ports from Marshal, Wetzel and Tyler
counties, which lie Immediately south
of here are to the effect that great
damage has been done and lives have
been lost by a cloudburst about 3
o'clock this afternoon.
The latest reports from the country
districts are that the damage is enor- I
mous. Many houses are washed away j
and it is feared that there has been
much loss of life, but reports on ac- j
count of the storm are meager.
In Marshall the damage in ar.d about
Moundsvllle will reach several thou
sand dollars. Baltimore and Ohio
tracks and other property were dam
aged to the extent of $3,000 by the
washout. In Tyler county, In the vl- |
clnlty of Sistersville the storm created j
the most havoc. For the past two
days it has been raining almost inces
santly and all the little streams were
swollen to twice and thrice their nor
mal size. When the storm came this
afternoon they became raging rivers
and swept everything in their path- i
way. A mile below Sistersville the j
Ohio River railroad was washed out i
for a distance of a mile and a half, !
and the rails with the ties attached \
are lying 200 feet out of position. The
loss will be over $10,000. Several
houses were washed away and the oc
cupants narrowly escaped after ropes
were thrown to them. The Carter Oil
company lost several rigs, and it is
thought that damage to other oil prop
erties in the back part of the county
has occurred. Several instances of
teams and cattle being washed away
are reported. There were five men in
one wagon and only two of them were
rescued alive. New Martinsville, Wet

ing Creek, *«rhich runs through the
town is a raging torrent* and the In
