Stractse, X. Y., May 31. The provi
sional Democratic state convention met at
noon today. Charles Fairchild called the
delegates to order and named John D.
Koran as temporary chairman and R. G.
Monroe as secretary of the convention.
Both these oflicers will probably be, by
resolution, made permanent. The conven
tion will name a complete set of four dele
gates at large, and sixty-eitfht delegates
from the congressional districts to the
national convention. The delegates at
Urge will doubtless be Fred It. Coudert,

Charles Fairchild said last night: "A

PLEADING FOR HIS OWN LIFE.
A Prominent Memphis Lawyer Under
i , Sentence to Be Hanged.
Memphis, May 31. The most sensational
criminal case ever tried in this state is now
being heard before the supreme court at
Jackson. In March, 1891, Colonel H, Clay
King shot and killed David H. Poston. at
tory for the East Tennessee Valley and
Georgia railroad, on the principal street of
this city. The details of the murder were
given in these dispatches at the time.
The trouble grew out of King's relations
with the widow of the Confederate gen
eral, Gideon J. Pillow.
Convicted of Murder.
At the trial in the lower court Colonel
King was defended by six noted lawyers,
but after a thirty-five days' session he
was found guilty of murder and sentenced
to be hanged. The case is now being tried
on an appeal. Colonel King will today
make a speech in bis own behalf. He is a
profound lawyer and the author of a di
gest of the Tennessee criminal law. It is
expected that his speech will be sensa
tional. A PRESBYTERIAN BOYCOTT.

and silver in the world's circulating me
dium. The statesmen of the Swisa Con
federation do not think the matter will be

American elections have been held. In
fact, they regard it as a political dodge on
the part of the Washington officials.
