LOUIS, Mo., July 2. —Flood tide for Parker, under tow for Cleveland. 5 describes the situation as to the presidential nomi >n, as the leaders of the various state delegations and the of the several booms are 'gathering in the world's iciir City. iservatism as to the platform, but a clean cut away from Bryanism. \ Tliis describes the outlook for the declaration of principles on which the Democracy will go before the country. PLATFORM CONTEST SHARP Unless all signs fail the great contest before the conven i will not be over the candidate but over the platform. ! will be an effort to make it distinctively an utterance about which there will be no taint of Bryanism. This will ibatted on one hand by Mr. Bryan and his followers, :> will desire not only the reaffirmation of the Chicago and ~ity platforms, but a declaration in favor of an in ; tax. Between these two ideas is another, which is that onvention pursue the policy of silence as to past per iances and the Democratic party. 3 drift to Parker has continued and th_e declarations ■ominent Democrats that Cleveland only can be elected Dosevelt are still made with great emphasis. Parker ng because of a listless and unaggressive field. Par of the most prominent men in the party urg s candidacy. There is no prominent leader to ally the opposition. HEARST IN SMALL MINORITY > doubtful if Bryan and Hearst can count enough votes :i third of the convention. They can make no eom i with those conservatives who do not think Parker's nomination wise. Indeed, the conservatives who have been 3sed to be conspiring against Parker are distrustful of one another. Gorman is accused by the followers of Guffey, of Pennsylvania, of being a "quitter." A great effort is now to be made by Tammany Hall to rally the South for Cleveland. The Southern delegates will 1 that since the adoption of the "negro suffrage" plat- Chicago the South has more at stake than any other 1 ought to come out for Cleveland, because he is the )emocrat who can be elected. The Cleveland men are discouraged, but are counting on New Jersey to start the Cleveland boom. c Parker leaders are on the ground. There seems to rivalry between August Belmont and W. F. Sheehan d who is the real Parker manager. Both are doing good Mr. Sheehan says that Parker is nominated already. The national committee's subcommittee on arrangements has nominated John Sharp Williams to be temporary chair man of the convention. This is an advantage for Parker, as Mp. Williams is an open advocate of Parker's nomination. BRYAN WILL NOT BOLT It was repeatedly denied today that W. j. Bryan has any intention of bolting. Mr. Bryan will be here tomorrow. Ige Parker favors mild methods with both Bryan and Tammany, but a clean cut platform. The Parker forces are in absolute control of the national committee and will settle the contests to suit themselves. They will also easily organize the convention. >avid B. Hill on his arrival tonight said that he did not desire to be either temporary or permanent chairman of the convention, or chairman of the committee on resolutions.

PUBLIC BATH GUARDS SAVEDRiNIiiI Live Savers Henning and INeu man Rob River of Victim Edward Henning, a life saver at the public baths, narrowly escaped drown ing yesterday afternoon while attempt ing to rescue a bather who had gone beyond his depth. When the man, who gave his name as William Stewart, sank in eight feet of water Henning jumped from his boat and swam after him. Henning's throat was seized by the man he sought to save, and losing his wind the guard was dragged un der the surface. Henning struggled with Stewart for several minutes, and both might have lost their lives had they not been rescued by Edward Neu man, ex-patrolman, serving as life sav er on the island. Henning was attracted by a cry for help and saw Stewart struggling in the water a short distance from shore. Stewart sank and Henning jumped from his boat into the water. Swim ming about he awaited the appearance of the man on the surface. When Stewart arose he seized Henning by the throat with the grip of a drowning man and Henning w,as unable to ex tricate himself. Together the men went down and" rose again and again, drift ing with the current nearly into the channel. Neuman, who witnessed the struggle from the bank, where he was sta tioned, jumped into a boat and pulled rapidly out into the river. Henning and Stewart, struggling fiercely, ap peared at intervals on the surface. Henning is a powerful man and an ex pert swimmer and was able, notwith standing he was being choked, to keep up the fight until Neuman reached him in the boat. It was necessary to strike Stew art a blow upon the head in order to compel him to release his grip upon Henning's throat. Henning was ex hausted when Neuman reached him. ///// L^M^^^^^^P^y KEEKERS WILL BE DISAPPOINTED Rosebud Farms Are Not Nu merous Enough to Go Around Special to The Globe BONESTEEL, S. D., July 2.—When the Rosebud Indian reservation in South Dakota is thrown open for set tlement July 5, it is estimated that there will be in Bonesteel, Yankton, Chamberlain 'and Fairfax at least 75, --000 people seeking to gain free homes from the government. Of these fully 90 per cent will be disappointed, as only 2,400 farms will b« :. ■ warded. Reports receive.! v- 'he' local offices of the railroad company indicate that there are already on the ground 25,000 landseekers. By Tuesday this number will be doubled, while Friday will see the reservation overrun with prospect ors. However, the old-time rush of set tlers onto the lands will not take place this year. The names of the home seekers will be registered and on Aug. 8 the drawing will be made. The reg istration will be open from July 5 to 23, giving the prospectors ample time to list their names at the government land offices.- Land Is Valuable Rosebud is said to be the richest land thrown open by the government since the opening of Indian territory and Oklahoma. It is said that the property is worth between $20 and $30 an acre and is accessible to several of the larg est market centers. Adjacent to it are several prosperous towns, Bonesteel, Fairfax and Chamberlain, all reached by railroads. The Omaha road reaches Bonesteel, while the Milwaukee enters Chamber lain. In order to care for the land seekers both roads will run special trains from Omaha and Sioux City. At least six trains will be run a day, while Continued on Twenty-first Page Lest You Forget, Young Man PANIC IS STARTED BY TOY TORPEDO Women and Children Are In jured and Suffocated by Smoke WORCESTER, Mass., July 2.—Acci dentally stepping on a large toy tor pedo, Albert Childs, a clerk of the Nel son 5 and 10-cent store, started a fire tonight which caused the explosion of $700 worth of fireworks and cut off forty customers and clerks who were in the store from the only exit. Women and children were injured and suf focated by smoke and were rescued from the cellar where they had fled to avoid the flames. Manuel Oviginian was caught undor a freight elevator as it was descending- with twenty-five women and was probably fatally hurt. Jacob Bedik and Oviginian, of New Haven, are dangerously ill from inhal ing smoke. Twenty-five women and children received minor injuries and were carried to their Tiomes in police ambulances. Miss Alice Dunn, a clerk at the fire works counter, suffered intensely from inhaling smoke and was severely burned. The discharge of fireworks created a panic among the men, women and chil dren. Skyrockets, mines, Roman can dles and $300 worth of firecrackers filled the air with balls of fire and a racket like the crash of musketry. The elevator was loaded with women and children and started toward an exit one story up. The elevator had just started when some one in the cellar pulled the cord and sent the elevator into the cellar with its load of human freight. The cellar was fast filling with smoke, and here the fire men found the half-suffocated people. Half of the women and children were pulled through the windows, and one load was taken out on the elevator through a smoke-filled shaft. There were many acts of heroism by firemen and citizens who rushed into the. burning store and rescued children. HENNEPIN REPUBLICANS PREPARE TO KNIFE DUNN G. O. P. Men Not Bound by Federal or State Positions Have Already Started After the Political Scalp of the Man From Princeton—Disgruntled Ones Ask John Lind to Seek the Democratic Gubernatorial Nomina tion and Proffer Their Support While the Collins men in the Repub lican state convention did not bolt, the fact that many of them are practical politicians and have- political futures at stake alone prevented. The rank and file of the Republican party in Minnesota who aligned themselves with the Collins candidacy are not pre vented from exercising the privilege of voting for another candidate for gov ernor, and indications are that the Re publican organization is threatened with the most serious bolt in its his tory. The action of the Dunn majority in the convention in unseating the Hen nepin county Collins delegation is given as the excuse for the threatened bolt, and yesterday developments came thick and fast in Minneapolis, the home of the men who were unseated and one of the Republican strongholds of the state. As the only candidate of an opposi tion party who had beaten a Republic an candidate for governor in forty years in Minnesota, Republicans, dis gusted with the methods employed in securing the nomination of Dunn and not at all satisfied with him personally, turned to John Lind in the hope of in ducing him to become a candidate for governor. Delegation after delegation called on Mr. Lind at his office in the New York Life Minneapolis building and pleaded with him to consider the suggestion that he become an active candidate for governor. They told Mr. Lind of their grievances against Dunn and his man agers and of their desire that he enter the field as the candidate'against the Princeton man, whom they said had adopted methods which, unchecked, would soon wreck the party in Min nesota. Drive Lind to His Farrft Mr. Llnd in reply cited their atten tion to his Duluth speech, in which "he said he had determined to retire from private life and return to his law prac tice as a more remunerative employ ment. The callers were insistent and persistent, and they came in such a stream that the Minneapolis congress man found it was impossible to avoid INDIANS MARCH ON Journey to Dcs Moines to Set- tie Disputed Chieftaincy Special to The Globe DES MOINES, lowa, July 2.—Mak ing their way over the prairie which was once their hunting ground, to the capital of lowa is a large delegation of Musquakie Indians, decorated in the regalia of the Sac and Fox tribe. In ternal war has arisen in their tribe over the matter of the chieftaincy, and they will appeal to the great father of lowa to settle their differences. He will refer them to the department of the interior. This has been told them, yet the redskins are pushing on. They are coming on ponies and afoot. A boy of eight years will ask the high executive to recognize him as the leader of the red tribe, and he will be opposed by Push-E-To-Neke-Qua, the chief recognized by the government. The tribe was scheduled to be in Dcs Moines in the middle of the week, but has been delayed en route. Each chief is supported by his council and each has his long story to tell of his right to the leadership of the Musquakie tribe. FLOOD HAS A VOICE Wall of Water Smashes Prop erty In Utah SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, July 2.—A cloudburst leading into the Wasatch range from the bench lands northeast of this city has sent a wall of water from six to ten feet down Dry canyon, causing much damage. A fan-shaped flood swept over the northeast portion of the city with a roar heard several miles. Brigham .and First streets, north of Sixth east and the intersecting streets were con verted into rivers. Trees, sidewalks and streets were torn up. Several cost ly residences were damaged. The pow er houses at Ogden, Bear River and Murray were struck by lightning, the latter being destroyed. MRS. WIENER SAYS SHE MADE NO STATEMENTS Special to The Globe LITTLE FALLS, Minn., July 2.—Mrs. Wiener, who is charged with the mur der of her husband and who it is claimed charged John Kardasch with, committing the crime, today denied that she ever made any such state ment, but sticks to her first story that the deed was done by tramps clad in women's clothing. Kardason, who is now in jail here, will probably be lib erated. Mrs. Wiener, on account of the crowded condition of the jail, was tak en to St. Cloud today. She will have her preliminary examination Friday. SECOND SECTION GENERAL NEWS PRICE FIVE CENTS their overtures if he remained in his office, and he went to his farm at Lake Minnetonka for the afternoon. Land's announcement that he intends to retire from public life is believed to have been made in good faith, but Min neapolis people, without respect to po litical affiliations, seem to be agreed that he is the man who can defeat Dunn, and they don't want a negative reply. W. H. Grimshaw, who was chair man of the Collins delegation from Hennepin in the state convention until the delegation was thrown out of the convention and "Jim" Peterson's dele gation seated, last night denied that he had any intention of bolting Dunn's nomination, and said that he did not believe that there was any general movement among Minneapolis Repub licans looking towards the support of Lind for governor. Grimshaw is not expected to bolt. He is a federal of ficeholder—United States marshal for Minnesota —and his position is of course a guaranty of party loyalty, while party fealty is of couse a pre requisite to the retention of his of ficial place. W. H. Williams, who will be remem bered from his management of the Hearst campaign in Hennepin county, said that he had reason to believe that Lind's announcement of his intended retirement from congress next March is bona file. Williams is not regarded as a close friend of Lind, in view of developments in the recent campaign before the Duluth convention, and is possibly in no better position to'speak John Lind's mind than many other Democrats of Minneapolis. Hennepin Republicans Angry Reports received late last night by The Globe from Minneapolis indi cated very strongly the intense feel ing over the Dunn nomination, and the sentiment among Ramsey county Col lins Republicans who are not bound down by federal or state positions is scarcely less bitter. While the Ramsey delegation was permitted to remain in their seats, they had no voice in the ■ ■ ' "—,l-t-- -~ ■ Continued on Twentieth Page BROWN STILL LIVES Duluth Wife Had Mourned Him as Dead Six Years DULUTH, Minn., July 2.—Mourned as dead for six years, Joseph Brown, well known in marine circles at the head of the lakes and who' was em ployed by one of the freight companies here, is alive and well at Seattle, from which place he has written his wife asking her forgiveness and asking her to come to him. His disappearance waa considerable of a mystery. The last that was seen of him he was rowing out into Lake Su perior in a small skiff. A few days afterwards some fishermen discovered the upturned craft with a mackintosh and pair of gloves which were identi fied as being Brown's. A few days pre viously to this he had' taken out in surance on his life for $5,000, and Mrs. Brown, believing her husband dead, put In a claim. The company was not sat isfied until this week that the man was really dead and then wrote Mrs. Brown stating that on July 15 the check for the full amount would be forthcoming. WANT OMAHA LAND George Francis Train's Children Sue for Large Tract Special to The Globe OHAMA, Neb., July 2.—Heirs of "Citizen" George Francis Train are about to commence suit in the federal court to obtain possession of 500 acres of land in the heart of Omaha, which was purchased by the dead eccentric in 1865 and taken from him under foreclosure proceedings. The heirs claim that the foreclosure and subse quent sale were without due process of law as against Mr. Train, who was at the time in the Tombs, New York, having been adjudged insane. The property involved is now valued at many millions. The action will lie against Kountze Brothers, wealthy bankers of New York and Omaha, and Samuel E. Rogers, a pioneer merchant and capitalist. The plaintiffs will be George Francis Train Jr., of California; Elsie McHenry Train, of Decatur, Mich., and George Francis Train Guager, a nine-year-old orphan grandson. "The suit would have been insti tuted long ago," said Elsie McHenry Train, "were it not for the fact thai my father's sanity would have been called in question. Rather than dis tress and embarrass him by the na tional publicity which would be given the case, the heirs decided to wait un til his death. The lawyers tell us that we are certain to win, as the decree of Judge Noah Davis, of New York, de claring George Francis Train of un sound mind still exists, and no guard ian was appointed.
