Shea Declines the Nomination for Supreme premo Court Reporter , HAD NOT SOUGHT THE NOMINATION Ho Could Not AlTnrd to Tiilic tin Onicr , but rrnmliivnt I'ollllcliinn Mute tlio I ) ( nioirncy limp No 11 opt a of Currying tlio Unction , J. J. Shoa of tills city has sent Chair man Fletcher Howard of the democratic state central 'committee a letter In which he positively declines to make the rnco for the office of supreme court reporter to which he was nominated by this week's convention. In the letter he says the nomi nation \\as given him without his Knowledge or concent nnd that he was In no way con sulted about It. Ills private business | s In such shape that he could not serve If elected and lie cannot spend the time to make such a canvass of the state as he thinks should be made by a man who accepted the honor nnd the responsibility of a nomination , so that he will under no circumstances allow hli nnme to be used. The nomination of Mr. Shea was a great surprise to the people of this city , because no one had e\cr heard that he was making any effort to secure a nomination , or thai he even had a remote desire for It. Since the convention Is over , however , the fact has been developed that a number of the nominations were made on very short notice. A prominent democrat was talking to some republican friends shortly after his return from DCS Molnes and he let the cat out of the bag In this wipe "The fact Is , nobody was looking for a nomination on the demo cratic ticket this jcar. It wasn't a question of who should have the honor , but or whom we could get to take It. " He Intimated finite strongly that no democrat was looking particularly for an election this year , nnd the fact that Mr. Shea secured the nomina tion without his most Intimate friends Und ine out that he was In the race does not necessarily Imply that he did any very "smooth work before the convention.

The two Shoemaker boys , who were ar rested with a boy named Davis for assault ing Burt Clark , were discharged In police court yesterday morning. According to the story told by the Shoemaker boys the four met on the street and the Shoemakers de manded that Clark take back something he had said about them and Davis. Ho agreed to take It back so far as they were con cerned , but refused to take It back as to Davis. This sort of a compromise did not suit them and they all struck out after Clark and chased him up to the police station , where he stayed all night. They went to police court for two mornings to stand trial , but Clark did not show up either time , and Judge McGee finally discharged all three ycslerdav morning. Mrs. II. B. Parkinson had a hearing on the charge of committing an assault and battery on Dwlght Corlies , the 14-year-old son of a neighbor. All the parties live on Bcnton street. From the evidence It ap peared that Corlies had been In the habit of of Mrs. Parkinson abusing the 8-year-old boy and the latter put a stop to It temporarily the other day by boxing his ears. The evi dence of a school teacher who was expected to testlry that It always took four teachers to administer corporeal punishment to him , was shut out. Judge McGee thought Mrs. Parkinson had considerable reason for tak ing the law into her own hands and dis charged her. About half of the First ward was present at the trial as witnesses on one side or on the other. Grand Plaza telephone 45. Grand Plaza bathing beach. Grand Plaza picnic grounds.

The good story that was published to the world as an illustration of the fearful heat here a week ago last Thursday , to the ef fect that the block paving in front of the Grand hotel caught fire from the sun's rays , was battered up a little , though not entirely knocked out , by the inconsiderate action of the elements yesterday. Although the tem perature was very comfortable all day long , the paving caught fire In two places In front of the hotel Instead qf only one. A little investigation s' owed that the cciuex windows of plate glass In front of the hotel were re flecting the sun's rays on the pavement In such a way as to act like a largo sun glass and the pavement lay smoldering away until it finally got hot enough to break Into flames. As a remedy for the block paving nuisance It has been suggested that the ad jacent property owners get their paving In sured against fire and then put circular windows In their houses.

Wllmer and Con gressman Hayes , relative to the postofllce fight In this city , has created an almost riotous feeling on the part of the eminent democrats concerned , andthe ranks of the local democracy are all torn up with angry dlesonslons , commotions nnd criminations. There Is ono question wfujch they all unlto In asking , and that Is : "How did Elboeck get possession of the telegrams ? " They do not question the statements contained In them , but concentrate all their energies In a desperate effort to l arri from what source Colonel Elboeck obtained the tell tale mes sages. As a preliminary 'step , Hunter and Stivers have taken th'0fvyarpath ' after scalps and have opened hostllluc 'by accusing Man ager Ycarnshaw or some of the operators employed In the Western * Union office of hav ing betrayed confidence and given their tele graphic correspondent ) ( o the enemy. In the persistent accusaUqnS.tho | Indignation of Manager Yearnshaw , haa been aroused , and he has demanded an Investigation and called upon the gentlemen to prove their charges or exonerate him on pain of being made respondents In a suit for'libel.

I had been troubled with chronic diar rhoea for over a year when I received a sntall botle of Chamberlain's Colic , Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy , which I used and it gave mo great relief. I then procured a 60-cent bottle and took about two-thlrda of It , and was cured. I have taken some twice since when I had a loosness come on and It stopped It at once. I nope It will help others as It helped me. I feel very thankful to Mr. Stearns , the druggist , for telling me of this remedy and shall be glad to have this letter published. S. C.
