' St. Lous, July 22. The day for tli i opening of the national political convention opened clear and hot. The attention of the public is all turno'l to the populist, the silver convention attracting little or no at tention, its work being fully cut ou. The leaders of the "middle of the road" men this mornlne decided to nominate Paul Vandervort, of Ne braska, in opposition to liryan. Tba 8llvr Man. The silver convection met in Mu sio hall, where (Jrover Cleveland was nominated eight rears ago. and assembled very slowly. At noon not inure than a hundred delegates had arrived. At a caucus of the members of the silver convention this morning a committee was appointed to confer with the populists with a view of solidifying the forces. The convention was railed to order at 12:30 by Chairman J. J. L. Molt, of the national . committee. After the reading of the call Congressman F. '. Newland was introduced as the tnmpnrary cbalrimn and delivered an ddies. When NewTahds finished the roll n called by states to get the names nr the committee on credential.

Stone, of Mis nuri. who delivcted a brief address ! welcome. Ignatius Donnelly, of Minnesota, responded. Donnelly appearance caused a burst of enthusiasm among the mid dlo of the road men. Donnelly spoke rracefully. but adroitly avoiding al lusion to the subject upon which the dolc'stes are divided. (Jen. Weaver moved over to the Tesas delegation and made a speech In favor of ibolding sessions behind dosed doors, but the Texans contid ered the scheme impracticable. The prevailing opinion now is that a compromise will do euectcu look irnr to the indorsement of Bryan for president and a southern man named t r vice president. This it is freely predicted will be the outcome of the onvcntion. At the conclusion of Donnelly's address Taubencck introduced Sena tor llutler as temporary chairman He was received with applause, and given three cheers. He made a stir rim? address charting both the re- puplicfen and democratic parties with untaitnfalness to tbfl people, and liuhtinir a sham battle in which Wall street always won. and that the pop ulist party was organized to bring relief to the people. Kap In tna Mld.Ha at tba Km Butler said he bad enough faith in his party to teal convinced that it would not make itself the annex to the democratic partv. The middle nf the readers cheered, but the Bryan followers shouted when be added there was a crave dancer that it mlzht be made a republican annex He said one danger was as great the other. "Let us Cod the truth in the middle way." This was the keynote of the speech, but there was no special applsnse or eviditi sag gestion til a compromise. At the conclusion of Butler's speech the states were railed for members of the com aaittce on cre dentials aad a recess was taken till 8 tonight. DYNAMITE FOUND IN HAVANA.

Halifax, N. P., July 22. The barken- tine Herbert Fuller, Captain Nash, from, Boston July 3 for Kosario, put into Hali fax yesterday flying the stars and stripes sat half mast with a black flag immediate ly beneath. This is the signal for "mutiny on board." When the Fuller was boarded it was learned that murder had been com mitted, and that Captain Nash, his wife, Laura, and Second Officer Banberry had been killed in their bunks while asleep. The murders had been commit ted with an axe. The rooms in which tho victims lay were covered with blood, show ing that a severe struggle had taken place, and the bodies were horribly mutilated. The cook, Jonathan Sheere, of Kosaris, suspected the mate Thomas Brani, and succeeded in placing Brant in irons, and he afterwards ironed the man who was at the whee l at the time the murder was Committed. Plonks Discovers the Bloody Crime. tlHn arrival of the vessel nil on board, including Lester Monks, of Boston, who was a passenger, were placed under ar rest. The United States consul here has telegraphed to Washington for instruc tions, pending the receipt of which he has enjoined all connected with' the iiiTairto maintain tho strictest silence. But in spite of the secrecy maintained it has been ascertained that Monks first became aware of tho horrible crime when he went to the captain's room to inquire if the cap tain was iii. Monks having been aroused from his sleep by. a groan or a scream. Falling to receive an answer he entered the room nml found the captain lying on the lloor covered with blood. The Victims Literally Butchered, He rushed on dc.-k and confronted the first mate, who was in charge, with the statement that the captain had been mur tlcrcd. Bram, the mate, seemed much agitated, and appeared not to know what to do. Monks then rushed below and aroused the crew. The men hurried to the cabin, where the full extent of the crime was s-xm made known. As tho bodies lay in their respective rooms they presented a horrible sight. Mrs. Nash's skull had been split almost In twain. The "tigers of her right hand bad lieen almost cut. oil, while another blow of the ax had cut off a section of the scalp with the hair attached. Her husband's head was also t.plit open, while the first ollicer had evi dently been killed with the pole of the ax. Seaman Who Saw the Crime. Brnm at first denied all knowledge of tho murder, hut later from remarks let fall and peculiar actions suspicion pointed towards him as the murderer and he was plaeefl in irons. The man at the wheel was Seaman Brown. He was also sus pected of complicity and was ironed by the crew. At the police station tho first mate was stripped and blood was found-on his clothing. The passenger. Monks, slates tliat be saw the first mate come frimi the captain's cabin after the murder. Seaman Brown has made a statement to the rfYert that he saw the lirst mate kill the captain. He heard a noise in the cap tain's cabin and on going thither saw the first mate murder the captain. There was no mutiny. Steward Was Kxpecting Trouble. Lester Monks, the passenger, is under nrrest. but is kept in the office of the chief of police with an ollicer present. Charles SpeniiT, the colored steward, says that something was in the wind from the day tho vessel left Boston, as the mate had three jugs of whisky with him. Charles Brown, who was at the wheel on the night of the murder, says that Brain's actions were verv suspicious, as he wanted to take the Fuller to South America instead of Halifax. Cutian l'hase of the Matter. Brown said that when looking down the companionway while at the wheel he saw the mate killing the captain with an ax. The ax was found covered with blood, and was thrown overboard for fear it might lie used a second time. It is believed the cap tain was murdered first, then the second mate and lastly the captain's wife. One story is that it was the intention to take the vessel to Cuba and sell her to the in surgents. . TO Absolutely Pure. A cream of tartar baking powder.
