The Fight for the Democratic Nomination for Governor Practically Ended. A TEMPORARY ORGANIZATION. Steve While Precipitates a Battle That Threatens to Disrupt the Convention— Buckley Says the Los Angelean Wiil Come Out Ahead — Bitter Opposition of Budd— Del Valle for Second Place. 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 limes. 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. NUMEROUS CAUCUS 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 convention. 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 green. _, 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. DAGGETT'S speech. 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 tous applause. 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 crats. 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 people. 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 snarl. A RECESS. 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: THE COMMITTEES. Committee ou Credentials— P. W.

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: THE PROGRAMME. 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 WORKING TOGETHER. 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 SAN FRANCISCO, WEDNESDAY MORNING. AUGUST 20. 1890-EIGHT PAGES. 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 winners. 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 there. -:.-.»- 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 lips. 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 man Friday. BUCKLEY TALKS. 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 versy?" "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 opposition." "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." PERMANENT officers. 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 platform. 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 lhat work. 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. Blown Dp Wi-h Lynamite. Seattle (Wash.), Aug. 19.— Mrs. John Wat son of . Boulevard came here this morulns and stated . thai some one had attempted to blow up her house with dynamite. She had' some- trouble with her husband, from whom she had been separated two veins, over money nialieis, aud she tlioiiuht lie was a culm It. , About mid niLiii she r was awakened by a tieinendoiis explosion, aud discovered that the side of her house had beeu blown out and much furniture desti oveii.

New York, Aug. 19.— Charles Webster, the actor, who traveled last season with the "White Slave" Company, shot and instant ly killed an engineer named Robert Mc- Neill- to-night. Webster was jealous of McNeill's attentions to his wife.- Webster was arrested. ■''■"•-". • - Bsir ■ ■ . AWFUL HAVOC. Pennsylvania Towns Struck by a Terrific Cyclone. Over a Score of Persons Killed and Many Others Injured. - Portions of Wilkesbarre In Absolute Ruins. Tbe Tillage of Smumervllle ' Annihilated. Special Dispatches to The Mobnino Call. 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 pletely demolished, and worse than all, a visitation of death was sent upon a number of people. Largo districts in several sec tions of the city are in absolute ruin and women and children are in the streets cry lug and wringing their hands in absolute dismay. The damage will reach hundreds of thou 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 fell on a man and two hor_.es and all were killed. A little colored girl was killed by a falling building on South Main street. Two meu suffered death by the falling of a por tion of Stegiiiriier's brick brewery, and a third incurred the same fate through the almost complete demolition of S. L. Brown's brick business block on Market street. There aro undoubtedly fifceon or sixteen others killed. Many poor people suffered heavy losses and it wili be mouths before all the damage done can be repaired. Fully 200 buildings bare been blown down or otherwise dam aged. Many of the structures were of large size aud of great value. The Murray shaft fan-house was blown down and the shaft stopped. There are twenty-seven men in the mine, but it is hoped they cau bo got out safely. Beports have come from Sugar Notch, a ; mining town three miles from here, that the destruction of property was terrible and fifteen persons wero killed. At Parsons and .Mill Creek, four miles from here, the coal-breakers in all direc tions have been more or le»s damaged. 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 Hour and physicians were summoned. St. Mary's Cathedral is a total wreck. The uumber killed will reach ten. Tele graph wires are down in all directions and communication is shut off. The names of those killed as far as known are: Bendenmeter, Buriikll, salesman. Fritz. John F., liuor'ir. Frantz, Adam, Hamilton, Gkobos. Hamilton, George. Kern, .Hir-i.i-ii, milkman. Ki.EixiiAi ri-, John. Martin, Xvi, baker. Rouse, Samuel, machinist KiTTEN'MEYKIt, PETER. Thompson, Mamie. A Hungarian entered a barn for shelter and the large double doors Were blown In, killing him Instantly and fatally injuring two others. Berlin Vandermask had his head crushed and legs broken, and cannot recover. Mux Cramer was fatally Injured by a falling wall. Jessie Houser had her legs broken and was internally injured by a falling roof. M. Brinkman was injured Internally. Ambrose Cousliue, a liquor-dealer, was in jured internally. Mayor Sutton to-night issued a proclama tion calling the -Ninth Kegiment to assem ble at the armory to-morrow to aid iv the supervision ol the city. 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 erly which lies in its track. At midnight 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 prisoned in the wreck and all badly hurt. A dispatch to the Becord says the cyclone struck Ilarveyville, killing two persons. The Methodist Episcopal Church and the adjoining parsonage were blown down. .Nearly all the houses in the village and the buildings of farmers were unroofed and the crops ruined. Scranton (Pa.), Aug. Trainmen on incoming trains report that the village of Summerville, thirty miles west of Scran ton, was struck by '.he cyclone and totally annihilated. Engineer Fischer, in giving an account of his experiences while passing through the cyclone, said the 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 ously Injured. Any definite account of the storm or damage done by it is difficult to obtain, as all wires west of the city arc dowu. 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 night. 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." LABOR CONFERENCE. The Hew York Central Railroad Strike Under Consideration. 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. ♦ — — Illicit Distillery Destroyed. - St. Louis, Aug. 19.— The biggest illicit distillery in Arkausas, located in Pike County, has been destroyed by United States officials.

He Itlsnppnrtrs nmi the Sum of 8700 Gout With Him. 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 than censure. 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. An Insignificant Fire.

Fifteen Persons Killed and Thirty-three Wounded, Three Fatally. Residents of California Among tbe Injured. List of the Identified Dead and Those Badly Hurt. 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 slight injuries. THE DISASTER. 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 years. DEAD AND WOUNDED. The killed are: Allen. Mks. Ercutt, Philadelphia. Fexxelly, Mrs. Mary E., aged 70, Louisville. Fennellt, Alice. Fennellt, Catherine. Johnson, E. J., Montpelier, Vt. Ryan, John, fireman of the train. Wells, Mrs. A. C, Hartford, Conn. A daughter of 11. L. Welch, Waterville, Conn. Four women, two men and two children unidentified. 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 bands. 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. CALIFOIINIANS INJURED. 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. _ A DESPERATE BATTLE.
