AN EARLY CONVENTION.
Action by the Republicun National Con-
vention Expected.
WASHINGTON, Oct, 8. ~Chajrman Clark
son of the Republican National Committee
is in this elty. lt}'o!poctod that he will
to-day issue a for the national com
mittee meeting next month to determine
time and place of (;n national convention,
and to pwru-e the formal *‘call” for it,
This action is taken by the political gos
sips to mean an early copvention and a
long cmn{»dqn. The moetin%ot the con
vention Is a ws{l six months from the
national committee’s call for it, If the
committee meets in November the con
vention will be called in May, or a month
carlier than usual,
It §s casy to forecast from this anticipated
action the charaeter of the vum’mlgn. The
summer months will be used for a *‘cam
paign of education” and th&pr«.limlnuy
organization of clubs, ith cooler
weather the “whooping it up’ process
will bogin.
This is a general statement, and would
'fl'l'ly to most candidates. If, however,
laine should be the nominee—and Wash
ington has learned to consider this likely
since hearing from the cmmtr&—-a]l gro-
Frammeq w‘fll be set aside, Not July's
weat nor Aygust’'s sultry days can re
strain the «.nfhmlam of the Blaine Re
publicans, and the Blaine Democrats who
will begome ll«yubllcauu in the event
;nt hl;‘ nomination, from bursting all
ounds,
In uur event, it is felt, the lonfiecam
ruign will be an u.dv.nt#e to the Repub
joans, They have the advantage of posi;
tion, and with the utter failure of the at
tacks on the McKinley bill and the gen
eral prosperity of the couutr{, the louger
the campaign the better for them.

suicide are denied, but Mrs. Parnell re
fuses herself to callers, and all details are

both local practitioners, having left their

a{ in calling an undertaker and in noti

as peculiar, but Coroner Hillman says he
regards the high standing of Dr. Jowers
as sufficient guarantee that nothing is
wrong. Dr. Jowers says death bed scenes
are confidential.
Mrs. Parnell will leave all details of the
funeral to Parnell’s relatives and to mem
bers of the Irish party. She is utterly
crushed with grief, knowing in her heart

CHICAGO, Oct. B.—The Herald of this
city says: “Had Parnell heeded the
kind&v advice of Davitt and voluntarily

tions,
*““He fought the fight against his former
followers with marvyelous grit and with
utter hgnleunm toward the miserable
le for whose relief he refused to apply
m.wo of moneg subscribed chiefly in

THE ADVANCE CLUB.
Prof. Augustine Jones' Paper on “ Parks
and Tree<Lined Avenues.”’
The regular monthly meeting of the Ad
vance Club wegs held last eveuiu'g at the
rooms, 26 Westminster street, The fea
ture of the evening was a paper read by
Prof. Augustine Jones, principal of the
Friends’ schuol" on *Parks and Tree-
Lined Avenues. e BRealbs S
“It is a great work of art,” saidthe
speaker, “ to lay out a [;]ark. securing the
beauty and \'urlet{.whic are allowed by
the location of its surroundings. Parks
have an immense value as breathing
films for the poor, and are a blessing to
umanity because of their cool depths and
guiet byways,
“Cities now furnish biuhwn}‘l. waterand
light for streets, and most of them also
have parks, tree lined avenues and oPen
air spaces, thus allowing the working class
toeuj(?v the cool breezes and ex{)erieuce
the delights of freedom untrammelled.
“The project on foot for the laying out of
additional parks for Providence ought to
be entered upon at once. It is the duty of
the hour., As maturity is an essential
element in a park, we cannot begin too
soon to furnish the benefit and richness of
years, or too much deplore a Policy which
relegates to other generations a service
which can never be performed hereafter
with so little labor and cost. We, also,
must not lose sight of the fact that Parks
b{ mtoring the health of the people, add
directly to their productive power and to
the wealth of the city.”
During the nu-etin% the question of
distributing some publications of the
club was brought up and tabled until fur
ther action by the executive committee,
It transpires that a special committee,
acting withont pm‘per authority, have
had a series of pamp nleflsru olished on the
municipal manu(semem. of public lightlnli.
They were called *“‘ Advance Club Leaf
lets.” The club wisely decided to con=
sider the matser further and to inquire
into the contents and the authority for
statements made before {m blicly commit
:inglit:ilf to the principles of nationalism
nvolived,
The editor of the Telegram, who has re
{)‘;mliuhfil these ramphlets. thus violuting
some extent the courtesy of the clu
secrets, was severely censured by mem
bers of the club and a motion for his ex
pulsion was referred to the executive com
mittee for action.
STATE AND CITY DEMOCRATS OUT.

members, who thought the State commit
tee should attend to its own business,
The resolution stating that either of these
gentlemen would be satisfactory to the
State committee was laid aside, also one
nuflgestimi a conference between the State
and city Democratic committees, State
and city Democrats don’t seem to “hitch”
very well together anyway.

“Bristol county has many scenes of
pleasant memory, and, indeo(i. all over this
:c’plenclid State are many Phces that are
ear to me, that I always like to visit, and
whose progress [ have watched with the
greatest interest since crossing the border
to be a Rhode Islander, I have never re
gretted the step | took some twenty years
ago for Rhode Island has been an indulg
ent su:xl)-mutber and has seen fit to honor
me, Ilike a %reat many of the Massachu
setts laws for instance, I like Massachu
setts roads—l purt.icularl( like them. l}\'e
are improving our roads in Rhode Island
but i’ou have the lead of us and your ex
ample of the successful making’and keep
ing olt ‘?od roads is au inspiration to our
people.
“PI have been much &ntereuted in look
ing about my own State the past few
weeks, while attending the diffesent fairs,
I have found the farmers in good spirits
with the crops. I think that is the case
everywhere, Icannot but be impressed
with the conviction that New B.ngland
far?é(i“ are improving their conditions
rapidly.
- tgink our New England farmers live
better than they used to, d‘know they do.
'l‘hex dress better and they have more
holidays. At Kingston, in our state, this
last August, 1,500 farming people assem
bled at an ufl-&ly grange meetinf(. Do
{ou think all these farmers would ever
wave thought they had time to engage in
such a picnic right in summer time a few
years back?

see you all and see the Taunton agricul

Brt-;ol coun?w\vu progre;u;ing. 1 r}ri‘i”l
much appreciate your president’s cordia
invitation, and trust when your fair comes
around another year that &m will be good
enough to again remember that I am a
Bristol county boy and would like to be
asked to the fair. I thank you for your
cordial reception.”
