Fpeclal Dispatches to The Moßxnra Cali.
Sax Jose, Aug. 19.— The Democracy has
tirkeii i'r '.rrrfrsirju of the Garden City and
Buckley's "heelers" are the most noisy
portion of the community. They have
struck termr in the hearts of the good peo
ple of Santa Clara County, and have taken
a contract to drink dry every bar in town.
A harder lot it would be difficult to find,
and their appearance is enough to condemn
. them on first sight. Taken all together this
convention in its personnel does not com
pare with the Kepublican Convention at
Sacramento, and those who have seen both
bodies are commenting extensively upon it.
THE OLD EXCUSE.
The Democrats themselves acknowledge
t is, but make the same old excuse about
representing people of all classes, but if
the good people of San Francisco could see
tbe men who represent them they would no
doubt feel highly complimented, for, while
— Buckley has seen to it that a few decent
men have been sandwiched iv to give
tone - to bis. follower?, the delegation
as a whole is about as hard a lot of
political bruisers as could be raked to
gether. A casual observer cannot but feel
assured that nine out of every ten have
slungshots stowed away in their clothes
and that they are not the class of men me
would care to meet ona dark night. Every
body knows Buckley is responsible for lhe
class of men who are here and that they
have been chosen because of their willing
. ness to do bis unlawful bidding at all
As a whole the convention is not a repre
sentative body of the people, but is mostly
the same old machine politicians who have
suppressed the will of the people in every
primary for ten years.
It was expected that the convention
would meet this morning at 10 o'clock, but
late la-t night it was decided not to con
vene till 2 o'clock, as notuing could be done
the first day beyond effecting a temporary
organization. The morning was given over
' to caucusing among the various delegations
and in wire-pulling on the part of the
different candidates and their friends. On
tlie .ri-.: ml id the hotels— everywhere,
in fact— all-absorbing topic of conversa
. tion was the question of indorsement for
United States Senator, a matter which has
grown to such proportions that it has far
overshadowed all else, and for the time
being the fight for the nomination for
Governor was ignored by the majority of
those in attend nice at the convention, and
the friends and opponent-, of Stephen M.
White indulged In acrimonious discus
sions as to the wisdom of the action of the
A BITTER FEELING.
The feeling has grown very bitter, and
the Democrats realize that a war will bj^
provoked when the question comes up
that will overshadow all other proceedings
of the convention. White, it may be
stated positively, will not withdraw under
any circumstances, but will stand or fall
as the votes may decide. Any way the
Democracy is placed in an awkward posi
tion and will lose votes in consequence.
If White is successful the friends of
Clunie, Foote, Taylor and Yell will feel
aggrieved, aud will not give the ticket
their warm support, while on the other
band, if he is knocked out, Southern Cali
fornia will, in the face of Markham's nom
ination, take it as a personal affront,
and may be depended on to roil up an
enormous Republican majority.
The Democrats realize this and have
used every effort to compromise matters,
* but without avail. The fight is on and it
will develop into a small-sized riot before
it is at last settled.
CALLED TO ORDER.
As the hour for the meeting of the con
vention approached, the delegates made
their way to the hull on San Fernando
street, but were so slow in getting into
their seats that it was quite 2:15 o'clock be
fore the convention could be called to order.
This was largely due to the fact ttiat some
- enterprising citizen had erected a booth for
the sale of liquors alongside the hall and the
delegates, true to party instinct';, found it
Impossible to pass without dropping in
for some consolation. The Interior of the
ball had been handsomely decorated for the
occasion, and although the hall is capable
- of sealing 2500 people, it was soon crowded
to its utmost capacity. The galleries were
filled with ladies and their escorts, and the
scene presented was one of animation.
Waving fans and nodding plumes added to
the effect, and as delegation after delegation
passed to their seats, applause greeted each
popular favorite iv turn. S^H
"7/1 THE DECORATIONS.
From tbe huge cross-beams above were
suspended flags and streamers of red, white
and blue, intermingled with evergreens and
vari-colored Japanese lanterns that swayed
- in the breeze which crept iv through the
open door. On the stage, to the rear of the
Cnairman aud Secretaries, desks for the re
- porters and telegraph operators had been
arranged, while across the front was
' banked 111 profusion a variety of palms and
other tropical plant*. At the back of the
stage was suspended a large oil painting of
Thomas Jefferson, draped in large silk ban
ners aud festooned with wreaths of ever
_, Shortly after 2 o'clock the San Francisco
delegation, -escorted by the .Manhattan Club
of San Francisco and the Tammany Club of
Los Angeles, and preceded by a band, filed
down the central aisle to their seats on the
left side of the hall, immediately in front of
the Chairman. On the right side, in the
front rows, were the Los Angeles delegates,
while in tbeir immediate rear sat Sau
Joaquin, bearing aloft a banner of white
silk, announcing that they were for Paul
sell lor Governor.
John Daggett of Siskiyou, as the hour ap
proached 2:15 o'clock, was seen to mount
I the platform, and when he rapped for order
be was erected with applause. lie stated
that in openiug the convention be was glad
to see such harmony and enthusiasm, and
felt it augured well fur the success of the
party at the polls. lie then Indulged in a
number of the same old platitudes that con
vention orators have the habit of firing off,
and paid bis compliments to the Republican
party as the party of corruption. For this
be was also cheered by the rabble.
Senator Jones of Butte then arose to
nominate Richard P. Hammond Jr. for tem
porary Chairman. The Senator is a gen
teel-looking young man, with pretty whisk
ers and rotund form. If be were a vulgar
man lie would be fat. As it is he is stout
lie referred gracefully to Mr. Hammond's
experience and qualifications, but the en
thusiasm looked for -was uot evoked, aud
in consequence Mr. Hammond withdrew
_ "his name.
\V HAMMOND DECLINES.
Mr. Hammond also has pretty whiskers
and the complexion of a glil. His only
<* ,s ><m to fame is that he is young. James J,
' jV, do, Secretary of the State Central Corn
i)..' tee, thes _tn__ to call the 'roll, but
The Morning Call.
John Boggs evidently found his voice dis
agreeable, and moved that it be called by
counties. After some backing and filling
and a slight war of words this was agreed to,
and Mr. Boggs smiled his old Missouri
smile. W. J. Curtis then secured recogni
tion and presented to the convention for
temporary Chairman the name of Hon.
Byron Waters of Sau Bernardino. He was
erected with cheers, and when George R. B.
Hayes of San Francisco seconded the nomi
nation the cheers were renewed.
WATERS FOR CHAIRMAN.
James 11. Budd of San Joaquin then
moved that the Secretary be instructed to
cast the ballot for Mr. Waters, which was
carried, and D. A. Ostium came to the front
with a motion to elect him by acelamma
tion, which was also carried, amid tumul
Mr. Waters was conducted to the chair
by Mr. Hammond, and on being Introduced
launched at ouce into a tirade of abuse, di
rected at the Republican party. He ar
raigned tliem fur every evil known to mail,
and said that when the people needed re
lief they had always turned to the Demo
Oil motion of Hayes of San Francisco,
Hammond was then made Vice-chairman,
A. C. Bertlieis and James NA.I, both of San
Francisco, were elected a- Secretaries in
order to avoid a conflict. The question of
Assistant Secretaries was referred to the
Committee on Permanent Organization.
A SLIGHT SNAG.
The convention nearly struck a snag
when Delegate Rogers of Alameda intro
duced a resolution favoring a uniform
liquor-license law and condemning hostile
liquor legislation. Mr. Rogers got upon
the platform to read the resolution, and
after he bad read it he started to make
a speech. Swinging bis arms above bis
head, Ire said that he belonged to the
saloou-kceper class, who look to the Demo
cratic party as a bulwark to preserve their
privileges. The Democratic party is not in
favor of national interference with prize
fights, he said, and would not destroy and
suborn all the privileges of a liberty-loving
ROGERS SAT UPON.
The convention began to smell a big rat
as Mr. Rogers went oti with his speech
and they saw that he was putting liis foot
iv it In a very decided way, and was apt to
bring the wrath of the temperance men
down on their heads. At once a dozen men
were on their feet and motions to refer the
resolutions came in from all sides, while
some raised the point of order that Mr.
Rogers had been granted the privilege of
reading his resolution aud not of making a
speech. A big row was Imminent, but
Chairman Waters seized hold of one of the
motions to refer ami ruled that Mr. Rogers
was out of order. The motion was declared
carried aud saved the convention from a
George R. B. Hayes of San Francisco pre
sented a resolution favoring the Australian
system of voting, which was rclerred to
.ha Committee on Platform.
The convention then look a recess of
thirty minutes to givo the Chairman time
to name the committees provided for.
The convention convened again at 4:15
o'clock, and the Chairman announced tiie
following regular committees:

What Pr m'ses to B. the Hottest Fight Be
fore th} Convention.
San Jose, Aug. 19.— Stephen M. White
still clings to his determination to force his
question of indorsement for the United
States Senate ou the convention iv the
morning, and it will probably be the most
exciting scene during the proceedings. The
question will come up in the light over the
report of the Committee on Order of Busi
ness, and a good old Democratic row is
.bound to follow. Jim Budd will lead the
opposition, and is being hacked up by
Cluute, Taylor and Foster. The programme
has been all arranged and will be brought
out in the following manner:
Chairman Waters, as is a notorious fact,
is favorable to White's indorsement, and in
selecting the Committee on Order of Busi
ness saw to it that the majority of them
were favorable to White's- plans. This
much being arranged, the next step was to
arrange the programme, and it was done
with but little difficulty. it was agreed iv
the order of business the indorsement of a
United States Senator should be inserted
after the nominations for Supreme Judges.
When the reading of the report i 3 com
pleted. Chairman Waters will recognize
Budd of San Joaquin, who wiil move to
stuke out the indorsement. This will pre
cipitate the fight and that it will be a hut
uue no one doubts.
■white's chances good.
Opinion is very much in dount as to the
outcome of it, but it looks as it Wnite would
win by a narrow margin. He has a large
and enthusiastic following, .ml is making
a desperate. li__!it, but the opposition is
strong and vigilant and will make a desper
ate effort lo head him off. At all events a
lively rumpus is an assured fact.
THE gubernatorial contest.
The light lor Governor is rapidly crystal
lizing, ar.d the drift is all to Pond. The
followers of Coleman and English are evi
dently discouraged to-night, and it looks as
if Poiid would win without much of a
struggle. He has made gr-'at strides to-day
and delegates Irom all over the State are
falling into line for him. Talk of a combi
nation between Coleman and English is
still heard on every side, but it is pretty
safe to say that it will never be consum
mated. No doubt such a deal has been con
sider! d and the delegates sized uu to see
what could be done toward such a combina
tion, but the prevailing sentiment is that
neither of them, in case of a bargaiu, could
deliver the goods.
CAN'T handle THEIR supporters.
The fact of the matter is neither of them
has strength of such a nature to baudle
his supporters, and in case of a brcan
Pond in all likelihood would get. enough
votes to nominate him. This is a danger
that is recognized by both English and
Coleman, but neither can see any way out
of it. Their supporters are lor them first,
hut if their care becomes helpless aud a
break must come they cannot be dictated
to; in other words, they are going to get in
on the winning side, and as tilings now
look they an- bound to go to Pond.
BUCKLEY'S OLD GAME.
A strong indication of Pond's ultimate
success is the fact that Buckley, who en
deavored to be a sphinx in politics, is play
ing his old game. lie will, it is claimed,
give to Poud on the first ballot only twenty
or twenty-five votes and divide the rest be
tween Coleman and English. This is a very
pretty play, and calculated, of course, to
deceive the festive granger to whom Buck
ley is a political ogre. Buckley knows this
only too well, and by pretending to favor
Eugilsh or Coleman, will help to centralize
th« interior counties on Pond. When tills
is done he will come in and nominate the
Mayor, claiming the credit for so doing.
THE BOSS WANTS POND.
This is an old game, but he lias always
worked it well, and for some reason the
country delegates fall time after time into
the same trap. No one doubts for a min
ute, among those in a position to know,
that lluckley wants Pond. They have
worked together so long that they are
necessary to each other, and Buckley real
izes that while Pond may be depended on
to do his bidding, lie Is shrewd enough to
throw dust in the people's eyes, and make
them believe at all times- that he is free
from " bossism." Still Buckley knows that
his open advocacy would kill Pond in the
Interior, hence his method of dividing his
strength on the first ballot
Pond Is carrying his end of the pro
gramme in good shape, and his followers
are whispering around that they wish and
hope to nominate him without the rougher
element of the party. They desire, in fact,
that he be the representative of the kid
glove element, so as to attract to his standard
the respectable element of the parly. This

is a very smooth play, but will hardly work,
it may fool the people for a time, though
but they will see it sooner or later, and it
will not strengthen Fond greatly with his
own party. As the matter stands, how
ever, it looks as if his nomination were a
foregone conclusion, and as if the second
or third ballot, at the latest, would end it.
DEL VALLE FOR SECOND PLACE.
Between Ihe fight over the Indorsement
and the nomination for Governor, second
place is for the time being lost sight of;
but the indications seem to point strongly
to Senator del Valle of Los Angeles, who
is recognized as a popular man in the south
and will be depended on to stand off Mark
bam as much as possible.
For Chief Justice, Wallace, Stanley and
Arthur Rogers are being discussed, and
there is nothing whatever on which to base
a prediction. Wallace is probably in the
lead, but Stanley is recognized as a formid
able opponent and may come in a winner.
Judge Coffey's frieuds still maintain that
he will not be a candidate, but will go in
for Associate Justice. The latter place
will be given him without a doubt if he
wants it, while Judge Hughes of San Diego
and Robert R. Hayue arc both looked on as
A 'WALKOVER FOB ITEROLD.
Adam Herold will have no opposition for
State Treasurer and will probably be nomi
nated by acclamation.
R. 1). Stephens, or as he is now popularly
called "the Democratic Don Quixote" seems
to be way ahead in his fight for Controller.
He figures out 324 votes on the first ballot.
The fight for tbe Congressional nomina
tion in the Second District has been practi
cally settled and A. Camiuetti will be the
mau. By a trade made to-night the eight
votes of Amador were given to Paulsell in
return for the 15 of San Joaquin for Caiu
inetti. In view of this Wright of Stanis
laus has withdrawn and left the field clear.
COMMITTEES IN SESSION.
Germanic Hall was the center of inter
est to-night, and thither all the faithful re
paired who had been giveu the lip and
knew what was going ou. The hall is away
from the center of town and from the head
quarters of the different candidates, so that
ouly those who understood where the light
was to be knew enough to make their way
The Committee on Organization and Or
der of Business and the Committee on Plat
form and Resolutions held secret sessions
in the private rooms of the hail.
At the private rooms, outside rooms and
doors stalwart sentinels stood guard and
only the committee men and a favored lew
were admitted inside. Newspaper men
were carefully excluded. Those who had
resolutions to lay before the Committee on
Resolutions were admitted one at a time to
make their little speech aud were then
courteously asked to retire.
THE BOSS ON HAND.
A little after 8 o'clock a double team
drawing a six-seated carriage drove up iv
front oi the main entrance of the hull. Oil
one of the seats was the hero of a hundred
political battles, Lord High Executioner
Christopher A. Buckley, lie wore a Man
hattan Club straw hat and was dressed to
the Queen's taste. The boss was tenderly
helped out on the sidewalk and was at once
surrounded by a crowd of henchmen who
surged Eagerly around to catch the words of
wisdom that tell from their political oracle's
NORTH AND SOI - 11.
As Buckley broke through the crowd he
was accosted by a stoutly built man with a
heavy dark mustache. it was John T.
Galley of Los Angeles, the boss of the
southern counties. Buckley caught the
sound of his voice "Ah, Johnnie," he ex
claimed, " how about this resolution?" \
" What resolution?" asked Gaffey.
"Why, the White resolution."
Gaffey gave a quick gleam around at the
crowd and then carefully drew Buckley to
one side where no one could overhear them.
They put their heads together and con
versed earnestly for some time. They evi
dently came to an understanding lor Galley
buttoned up his coat and started upstairs
with tlie air of one who was Satisfied.
Buckley followed loaning on the arm of bis
In the rooms above a Call reporter suc
ceeded in drawing Buckley to one side and
getting him to talk.
" I am only down here," he said, " in the
Interests of harmony. I am simply smooth
ing over ali their little internal quarrels
and getting them to work in peace. Last
night I drew Major Hammond out of the
fight for the Chairmanship aud had Waters
agreed upon for the place and I have fixed
their little committee meetings, so that we
could have harmony. I have no candidate
of my own for any office, but leave every
one free to go where tney please."
WHITE WILL WIN.
"What do you think of the White contro
"1 am not interfering in that fight. I told
them to go and light it out. Personally, I
am a friend of Wnlie. I marie him Chair
man of two Slate Conventions and Vice-
Chairman of a National Convention. 1
would be glad to do anything for him that 1
could, but I am not interfering iv the mat
ter. It will be an all-day fight and an ear
nest one. Mr. White will, of course, head
tho tight for it and Mr. Budd will lead tbo
"Who will win?"
The politician leaned over and whispered
in The Call representative's ear. "White."
"Then, after that tliere will be a fight to
see whether White or Clunie will receive
the indorsement?" •_. --
"Yes, that fight will come, but it will be
later. It will be after the other nomina
tions have been disposed of."
The Committee on Permanent Organiza
tion anil Order of Busiuess held a session
until 11:30 o'clock to-night with closed
doors. The most rigid precautions were
taken to keep the result of its deliberations
from the press and a full account of the
proceedings could not be obtained, but it
was learned by a Call representative from
one of the members that the committee had
agreed upon a report making all temporary
officers permanent officers. The order of
nominations will be as follows: Governor,
Lieutenant-Governor, Chief Justice, Asso
ciate Justice (short term), Associate Jus
tices (long term). State officers, Congress
man, Board of Equalization, Railroad
Commissioners, and in the order of busi
ness is placed the Indorsement by the con
vention of a United States Senator.
This last order of business was the tiling
that kept the committee so long in its de
liberations. The controversy over it was
heated and bitter, but it was carried, as
predicted by Boss Buckley. The longfight,
however, showed that the party managers
had merely given themselves a majority in
the committee. .•_.'_•
The same rigid precautions wore observed
in regard to the deliberations of tbe Com
mittee on Platform and Resolutions as by
the Committee on Order of Business, It
was learned that the committee had under
consideration four important planks in
the platform. They adopted a plank
calling upon Congress to pass an act
totally excluding Chinese from coming into
this country. The plank also recites first
that the present act will expire next year
and calls upon the California delegation in
Congress to use their utmost endeavors to
have an act passed at the earliest possible
moment in the next Congress. A plauk
was adopted reciting the necessity of keep
ing the navigation of the Sacramento,
Feather and San Joaquin rivers in the best
possible condition and asking the National
Government for liberal appropriations for
AUSTRALIAN BALLOT SYSTEM.
The committee also adopted a plank rec
ommending the adoption of the Australian
ballot system in California. A heated dis
cussion was bad over a resolution pledging
tbe party to . the enactment of
a law permitting hydraulic mining,
where work did not injure the navigability
of rivers below the mine, but the resolution
was finally voted down. The committee
finally adjourned at 11:30 o'clock without
finishing. It will meet again an hour be
fore the convention meets in the morning.
A committee of printers from the Sau
Francisco Typographical Union appeared
before the committee and urged the inser
tion of a plank in the platform providing
for the election of a State printer.
Another committee urged the adoption of
a plank providing that fruit lauds shall not
be taxed until fruit trees come into bearing.

Wilkesbarre (Pa.), Aug. 19. — At 5
o'clock this afternoon the most terrible
cyclone that was ever experienced in this
locality struck this city, lt came up the
river, and the suddenness of its coming
was one of its awful features. The
heavens were as black as night and the
wind blew with mo3t frightful velocity.
Whole rows of trees were blown down.
Following this, hundreds of houses were'
unroofed, partially blown over or com

sands of dollars. Passenger trains and
locomotives at the depot were blown
over and every wire in the city of the
electric light, telephone and telegraph com
panies is down. Tho devastation is to be
compared with nothing in the memory of
the oldest inhabitant. Everybody is re
joicing that no fires as yet have taken place,
for the streets are impassable with trees
and fallen buildings, and the engines could
not be drawn through them.
The total death list so far as ascertained
is twelve. Four men are known to have
been killed in the Hazard Wiro-ropo Works.
A house on Scott street, occupied by miuers,
who had just returned from work, fell in
and three of the inmates wore killed. The
huge smokestack uPtheKytle planing- mills

Terrible was the scene in the Hazard i
Wire-rope Works. The dead and dying lay
on the lioor, and heart-rending ciies auu
groans tilled the air in the room. The cy
clone struck the rear of the large brick
building, about 200 men being employed In
the works. The roof and side walls were
crushed in and lay in ruins all about.
Bricks and ponderous machinery were
scattered all over. When the storm was
imminent the men rushed for the door, but
many of them were cauizht in the ruins. As
soon as calm succeeded the awful cyclone,
men rushed into the ruins and carried the
injured into a portion of the building which
was untouched and laid them upon the

The estimated loss at midnight is half a
million, although it may reach a higher
figure. Tiie suffering is great.
A terrible rain-storm set in shortly after
the cyclone and drenched the exposed prop

the rain is pouring down in torrents.
A special to the Itecord from New
Milford, Susquehanna County, says the
cyclone struck that region at precisely the
same moment Wilkesb.irre was struck.
Farmer Cole's house was demolished and
Mrs. Cole killed. His family was im

A dispatch to the Becord says the cyclone
struck Ilarveyville, killing two persons.

engine was lifted from the track, the cub
blown off and all the windows iv the curs
were crushed in by the terrible force of the
wind. Two of the train-hands were seri

A SITELESS FAIR.
Directors Unable to Agree on a Location for
the Columbian Exhibition.
Chicago, Aug. 19.— After a wrangle last
ing nearly to midnight the Directors of the
World's Fair adjourned again to-night with
out definitely selecting a site for the great
exhibition. The meeting it was expected
on all sides would be a decisive one, but at
midnight the question of location was left
more open than it has been at any time for
weeks past. Aside from bearing the reports
of committees aud experts the whole time
was consumed in an interchange of widely
differing views. At times the talk was
quite heated and again wearisome in the
extreme. Action was taken on but two mo
tions. A resolution offered by T. J. Jeff
rey was adouted in which the question of a
site was referred back to the committee
with instructions to abandon consideration
of Jackson Park unless enough area there,
say 400 acres, could bo made available at a
reasonable cost to accommodate the whole
exhibition. Any other site obtained by the
committee is to contain not less than 400
acres. ;- The resolution also contained a
clause expressing the desire to use in con
nection with any site selected tho present
Lake Front Park.
Following this, resolution, another, pro
posed by Lyman :J. Gage, was carried, re
jecting the city ordinance granting permis
sion to pile or fill in the harbor adjacent to
the present strip of land known as Lake
Front Park. •• Gage's resolution contem
plated that a new ordinance could be ob
tained from the City Council permitting a
more unrestricted use of the lake front. the
details of which were so be agreed upon'
later. : With matters left -in this indefinite
shape, the- Directors adjourned until Friday
Probable Advancs in Hops.
New York, Aug. 19.-A. Lilienthal of
Lilienthal Bros,, who handle a great quan
tity of Cailfernla hops, said to-day in an in
terview concerning the outlook: "The
hop crop of Germany this year will amount
to from one-third to one-half less than last
year. The Continental Europe crop is
practically nothing. Dealers in the city
feel that tbe present prices are not as;bigh
as might be expected. Considering the
prospects held out for a crop at home and
abroad, it is possible prices will go still
higher. Ido not think, however, that the
price in this country will go up as high as
it did in 1882, when it reached $1 25. At
all events, the price will not reach anything
like that figure for some time to come."
The Hew York Central Railroad Strike
New York, Aug. 19. -Webb of tho New
York Central this morning said: "Fcr the
past few days I have been making arrange
ments to get a new force of firemen in case
those on the road go out, and have suc
ceeded so far that any delay from
that cause will only be temporary. If
necessary I will stop every particle of
freight traffic, close up every yard and keep
them closed until I havo__ebtained a suffi
cient number of new firemen to resume
freight traffic. This I think I can accom
plish within forty-eight hours, as I iiave
long lists of men who will come at the
wages we will pay. My road will expend
$2,000,000 to win, and in my action lam
backed up by the stockholders."
An air of uneasiness was about the Grand
Central Depot this evening, and for the
first time iv several days preparations were
made for Webb and Yoorhees to spend the
night in the depot. Au emergency had ap
parently arisen to induce the New York
Central officials to anticipate developments
that might require their attention at any
moment. The cause of the anxiety of the
Central managers —un anxiety which
appeared clearly in the unusual
aversion in making comment on the sit
uationwas nearly explainable by an event
of the forenoon. This event was an inter
view between Vice-President Webb and
Chief Sargent of the Brotherhood of Loco
motive Firemen. In this conference Webb
was placed iv a situation of doing most of
the talking. In a cordial manner he com
plimented Sargent aud .the organization
of which the latter was at the
head for the manner in which it
had remained true to tho Central.
Webb cave Sargent every opportunity to
say the firemen appreciated thu compli
ment and tvould continue in the future as
in the past true to the interests of the
railway and not join ti.e ranks of
the- strikers; but the wily chief en
gineer did not say anything of
the kind. There was an . appearance
of an willingness to t -Ik at any length on
the part of Sargent. This interview caused
the uneasiness. Neither Webb nor Voorhees
had much to say this evening. Nothing
further has been heard from Powderly or
the leaders of the Knights of Labor.
The much-talked-of conference between
the labor leaders occurred this eveuiug at
the St. Cloud Hotel and lasted lor two
hours. The whole situation was fully
discussed, .but uo conclusion reached.
The dis.-iCiis.rion will bo resumed
in the morning. At midnight indications
are that a strike far-reaching in its lines,
will be inaugurated to-morrow upon
nil railways in the great Vauder
bilt system. The four labor lead
ers in conference with the Executive
committee of the Knights of Labor are
members of the Supreme Council of tho
Federation of Railway Employees. The
general demeanor of tho members of the
conference was tbat the men were eugaged
In a heavy task. They positively refused
to say in what way their deliberations had
reiultv.il, beyond naking the statement that
no conclusion was reac el.
Buffalo, Aug. 19.— Tbe lapse of twenty
four hours makes it more than ever ap
parent tbat the council at the Continental
Hotel Monday was a significant conference,
it meant, in short, that the two great organ
izations would make a common fight ot their
two grievances and win or lose together.
As Powderly expressed it, "I've got men in
the switchmen's battle aud you (Sweeney)
have got men in the kuights' battle." What
the leaders now in New York may decide
upon will be final so far as the Lulled Order
of Kailroad Engineers is concerned. When
the Executive Committed send word to the
switchmen iv Buffalo that they may go to
work for the Central road, they will go, and
not until then.
John Devlin left to-night for New York.
His presence there will complete the quo
rum of the Executive board of the Kuights
of Labor. To-morrow there will be
gathered in New York two handsful of
men who control the destinies of
tbe greatest bodies of _ Organized
railroad labor in the country.
Their simultaneous presence denotes
harmony, and a pooling of issues. In view
of the plain facts cited above, tho conclu
sion is not speculative that the Knights of
Labor and U. 0. It. E. have federated.

Charles Ciineo, a fish-dealer in Clay-street
Market, who resides iv Alameda, has loi
the past year had in his family a brother-in
law, whose name is William Bonner, aged
about 80 years, whom he lias been keeping
while out of work, Cuneo, who is
a man of somo means, also had
at bis home the sum of $700,
of which fact Bonner was aware.
Yesterday afternoon Mrs. Cuueo visited
this city to do some shopping, and
upon her return she fouud Bon
ner gone, and upon looking for the
money she found it gone also. She imme
diately hastened bark to the city, sought
her husband and they together proceeded
to the house of Edward Johnson, who re
sides on Filbert street, and there they found
Bonner. Alter considerable effort and some
threats Bonner was induced to give up
the bag containing the money. Afterward,
upon counting the samo Cuneo found that
there was only $550, and that he was $150
short. He proceeded in quest of Bonner,
but could not find him, but did find Jack
Williams, the swimmer, who has been very
intimate with him for some time past and
who was in his company yesterday. He
Chad Williams arrested and detained at the
City Prison last night. No money was
found on his person.
The Full Limit.
John Connors was sentenced by Judge
Murphy yesterday to serve fifteen years in
Folsom Prison. The crime was burglary,
and against him was one prior conviction,
His attorney pleaded in extenuation of his
act that lie was a victim of the deadly opium
habit and deserving of sympathy rather
Judge Murphy replied that he had no
doubt whatever that Connors was a danger
ous citizen, and should be placed where so
ciety would he sale from him. Had he been
interrupted when committing the crime of
which he was convicted, no doubt he would
have shot or stabbed some one. Such of
fenders deserved uo sympathy.

A BAD WRECK.
Disastrous Accident on the OW
Colony Railroad. ..
Fifteen Persons Killed and Thirty-three
Wounded, Three Fatally.
Residents of California Among tbe Injured.
List of the Identified Dead and Those
Special Dispatches to The Morning Call.
Boston, Aug. 19.— One of the most dis
astrous railroad accidents that ever oc
curred in the vicinity of Boston, and one
that rivals the famous Wollaston disaster
of October 5, 1878, occurred this afternoon
on the same road, the Old Colony, and very
near the same locality. In the Wollaston
disaster fifteen persons were killed and
nearly 150 injured. To-day fifteen persons
were killed, twenty-three seriously injured,
three fatally, and several more sustaining
The train wrecked to-day was the Wooas
hall express, which was due in Boston at
1:50 o'clock in the afternoon. It consisted
of a locomotive, baggage-car, smoker, Pull
man car and four ordinary coaches heav
ily loaded. The ' train had passed
Quincy Station, running ten miles
an hour, and when just beyond
the President's Bridge the engine
left tlie track from some cause at
present undetermined and plunged into an
embankment twelve feet high. The tender,
baggage car, smoker and Pullman passed
by the engine and were stretched along for
a distance of 100 feet beside the track. The
foremost passenger coach left the rails and
fell upon its left side upon the engine. The
lower forward portion was torn to pieces
and of the passengers in the car, some fifty
iu' number, many were thrown into the rear
corner, from which eleven bodies were
taken out. The escaping steam and smoke
from the engine instantly tilled the car.
THE ENGINEER KILLED.
The forward cars were forced up over the
outward-bound track, completely blocking
tiaffic all day and niu.it. Only three per
sons on the train ahead of the passenger
coach were injured. The fireman was in
stantly killed and buried under the engine.
The engineer and Pullman-car Conductor
Benson wero' both badly injured. In the
three rear passenger coaches the occupants
received no worse injury than a slight
shaking up. The first passenger coach was
the principal scene of death and agony, and
the experience of the unlucky occupants
was probably never exceeded in horror and
suffering in any railroad wreck of recent
DEAD AND WOUNDED.
The killed are:
Allen. Mks. Ercutt, Philadelphia.
Fexxelly, Mrs. Mary E., aged 70,
Johnson, E. J., Montpelier, Vt.
Ryan, John, fireman of the train.
Wells, Mrs. A. C, Hartford, Conn.
A daughter of 11. L. Welch, Waterville,
Four women, two men and two children
The following were critically Injured:
Mrs. Oscar Fennelly, Louisville, scalded
over the whole body ; C. M. Copp, Cleve
land, Ohio, scalded over the whole body
and not expected to live; E. C. Bailey of
Dorchester, formerly proprietor of the
Boston Herald, scalded on the face and
Those seriously injured number thirty,
and the conditions of two or three are criti
cal. It is reported that the name of one of
the unidentified dead is W. 11. Grady, and
two of the others are Mrs. E. P. Johnson
and her 15-year-old boy. lt is also reported
that a niece of Mrs. A. Wells of Hartford
is among the unidentified dead.
The coals in the engine set lire to the
coach, but the fire was soon extinguished.
A number of physicians were summoned
to the spot as soon as possible. Those
living were taken from their positions of
peril and those most seriously hurt taken
to the hospital. The dead were laid on the
grass beneath a tree until the undertakers
arrived. All that human skill could accom
plish was done to soothe, the last hours of
the dying and quiet the pain of those suf
fering from burns and wounds.
Among those seriously injured are: Mrs.
Martha K. Chase, at the head of the Santa
Kosa Female Seminary, Santa Rosa, Cal.,
face and left aim slightly burned Rev. T.
M. Dimmick of Los Angeles, face, arms
and hip scalded; his wife, a sister of Mr?.
Chase, had her face and hands scalded and
suffered a compound fracture of both bones
of the left leg between the knee and ankle.
In the afternoon the crowd became so
great about the wreck, tearing remnants of
the cars to pieces and securing mementoes,
that the oihcers were compelled to drive
them away and erect guard ropes.
The general impression seems to be that
the wreck was caused by spreading rails.
The most unfortunate party was the family
of Oscar Feunelly. His wife, three chil
dren, mother and maid were in the narty.
His mother and two children were killed,
and bis wife so seriously injured that she
may die any moment. Ills other child and
maid are both injured.
Three persous, so far, have not been
found, and five more may die, making
twenty persons in all as the victims of the
terrible wreck. •
Electric lights and gasoline lamps were
erected as soon as it began to grow dark,
and the work of clearing away the wreck
was continued all night. _
