See It
ST. PAUL. Jtine 25.—A special
to The
Globe from Chicago says: Never again
will a Democratic national convention
be held in Chicago unless the local au
thorities will undertake to provide bet
ter accommodation* and letter weather.
Never was a convention held under
more disagreeable auspices, and a com
parison with the surroundings at Min
neapolis makfw the former absolutely
odiouH. Thnre wa« that gTeat barn of a
wigwam crowded with 2,(00 steaming,
perspiring men and women, not over a
half of whom could hear the voices
from the rear and the floor of the con
vection. When closed up to prevent
the drenching rain from drowning out
the crowd the place was dark as a pocket
Mid hot as a Turkish bath. At best, the
rain could not be kept out. It drifted
In through cracks and holes, and spat
tered and splashed over everybody.
Umbrellas were always up and there
was never a time when there was not a
wail of disgust from some quarter. The
press accommodations were a holy
terror. Occupants of press seats could
see, but they could neither hoar nor
write. In this respect the comparinon
with Minneapolis was positively painful.
Finally, Chicago must provide better
weather. This is the only place in
America where it rains hot water. The
drenching storms scalded as they fell
and they fell all the time. There
has been no day for a week
in which it has not rained
almost continually. Between storms
the sun burst out in fiery power and sent
the mercury careering through the
nineties, causing a roasting, scalding,
burning steaming vapor to fill the air
constantly. When night came it was
worse than ever, for it was hotter than
ever. The political storms of the week,
added to the meteorological conditions,
made Chicago simply terrible. Men
with no very distinct ideas of hell have
had their imaginations considerably
brightened up during the past eventful

TTEW YORK. June 25.—The Sun in
commenting upon the Chicago nomina
tions says: There is one question de
pending on the election of the next pres
ident which in its momentous import
ance and vital imperativeness must
seem to every philosophic observer to
exceed every other political question
that the people are now called upon to
determine. We mean the question
whether those Southern states which
have inherited a negro population sur
passing the number of their white citi
sens, 8hall, by federal law and federal
military forces, be subjected to the po
litical domination of the negroes. Bet
ter vote for the liberty and the white
government of the Southern states if the
candidate were the devil himself rather

LOUISVILLE, Ky., June 25. —Henry
Watterson's paper says regarding the
Chicago nominations: "The Courier
Journal accepts the result with no,feel
ing of dissatisfaction or disappointment
on the contrary it finds us fully prepared
to support it sincerely and heartily.
With the. utmost freedom and frankness
we have from the 8tandjxint of political
strategy stated the objections to this
nomination. We desire to have the
party hear and consider these objections
that it might not act unadvisedly or
hastily, or proceed in this important
work in a spirit of anger or irritation.
We have urged the consideration of har

CHICAGO, June 25.—General Adlai E.
Stevenson, candidate for vice president
of the United States, opened the cam
paign in parlor O of the Palmer house
at 9 a. m. A great many visitors called
in the foreuoon, among them General
Bragg of Wisconsin, General John
Black of Illinois and the entire Illinois
delegation to the late convention, many
of the Indiana delegates and a mixture
of politicians, delegates and every day
citizens. To a United Press representa
tive General Stevenson said:
"I believe we can carry Illinois for
the Democratic ticket this fall
I do
not say so because I am on the ticket.
With Cleveland and Gray or Cleveland
and Boies we could do it. The people
qre ready for a change and they want to
see a return to a government by the peo

"Will the campaign open early?"
"Well, theoretically, the campaign
is already opened, but practically, I do
not think it will begin before Septem
General Stevenson was in receipt of
so many contrrat ulatory telegrams that

them. He accordingly expressed a de

Biographical ftketch of the Democratic
Nominee for Vice President.
Adelni E Stevenson, the nominee for
vice president, in a resident of Blooming
ton, Ills. He was born in Christiansen
county, Kentucky, Oct. 23, 1S35. He at
tended Center college. Louisville, Ky.,
and when 26 years of fue removed with
his father's fmnily to Bloomington, Ills.,
where he studied law anu was admitted
to the bar. In 1859 lie located at Msta
rn ora, Ills., and engaged in the practice of
his profession, remaining there for ten
years. In 1864 he was named as the pres
idential elector for the district. In 1869
he returned to Bloomington, forming a
law partnership with J. S. Ewinur,* which
still exists. He was elected to congress
by the Democrats of the Bloomington
district in 1875, although the district had
always been strongly Republican. In
1876 his party again nominated him for
congress, but he was defeated. He was
nominated a third time ia 1878 and was
elected. He was a delegate to the na
tional convention of 1MH4 and was ap
pointed first assistant postmaster general
by Cleveland. At the close of Cleveland's
administration he returned to Blooming
ton. In 1877 President Hayes appointed him
a member of the board inspect the mili
tary academy at West Point. The recent
state convention elected him a delegate at
lar^e to the national convention. He was
serving in that capacity when nominated.
Wo Separate Organisation.
CHICAGO, June 24.—In all likelihood
the plan formulated by the Syracuse
convention of bolters, to form a regular
state organisation to conduct the coming
campaign, will be abandoned. The sen
timent deems to be among even the
most ardent of Mr. Cleveland's support
ers who are still here, that it would be
the height of folly now that their can
didate has l»een named, to further irri
tate the regular state organization con
trolled by Edward Murphy, Jr.t Lieu
tenant Governor Sheehan and Richard
Croker. A spirit of compromise has
manifested itself, and E. Ellery Ander
son, one of the foremost leaders in the
revolt in New York against Hill's Feb
ruary convention, said he had confidence
in the integrity of the regular organisa

PHILADELPHIA, June 25. Senator
Quay, after breakfast, started down
town. He met Collector Cooper and
ex-Sheriff Kern and stopped for a chat.
The topic of conversation naturally
turned to the action of the Democratic
convention and the nomination of Cleve
land. Senator Quay expresed himself as
satisfied ami confident that Cleveland
would be easily beaten. As he turned
to enter his cab the senator remarked to
ex-Sherill Kern: "I will bet $10,000

states answered. The chairman was
authorized to appoint a committee of
five to wait on the president and vice
president and find out when they would

Gray Witnt a Candidate.
INDIANAPOLIS. Ind., June 25.—Ex-
Governor Gray said, after he had heard
the news: I was not a candidate for
vice president and did not desire the
nomination. At a meeting of a number
of my friends of the delegation held la°t
Thursday, I informed them that I did
not want them to put me forward for the
vice presidency, nor to make arrange
ments to bring about mv nomination.

De Mores to Be Arrested—A Matter of
Principle With Will Load to Civil
War, He Says.
PARIS, June 25.—The Marquis De
Mores, who fought a duel with M. La
maze, tho sub-prefect of Fouimies, in
which he severely wounded his antago
nist, has just fought another duel with
Captain Mayer, a well known swords
man. Mayer died during the evening.
De Mores is an intimate friend of Ed
uardo Durment, editor of the paper
called Libre Parole, and has enthusias
tically supported M. Durment in his at
tacks upon the Hebrews. It was this
that led to the duel, Captain Mayer hav
ing called De Mores to account for his
indorsement of these attacks, which are
of a very scurrilous character. M.
Mayer was a dexterous swordsman, but
he was no match for De Mores, who
soon threw Mayer off his guard and
fatally wounded him in the lung. De
Mores, it is said, lias boasted his willing
ness to meet every champion of the Jews
that choses to come forward.
It was agreed that the duel should be
fought with swords. The duellists were
not to come to the closest quarter and
were to cease when one of the combat
ants received a wound that would place
him in a position inferior to that of his
adversary. When all the preliminaries
had been arranged and the duellists had
taken their positions the usual signal
was given. Tho marquis made a direct
thrust with his weapon which was par
ried by Captain Mayer. The marquis
again riiade a rapid lunge, his rapier
passing through Captain Mayer's guard
and piercing his body below the armpit.
The marquis, seing what had occurred,
immediately disengaged his weapon and
leaped back on his own ground. Cap
tain Mayer dropped his sword, exclaim
ing: "I am badly hit," and fell to the
ground. The marquis then advanced
and asked permission to shake hands,
and Captain Mayer assented.
The surgeons who were present at once
attended to the wounded man, and as
soon as he was made comfortable he was
placed in a landau and removed to the
hospital where he died. Captain Mayer
had carefully concealed from his rela
tives all knowledge thai he WM to fight
a duel.
The marquis said that the ac
tion of the magistrates in ordering his
arrest would not "prevent the prosecu
tion of the work we have undertaken,"
adding "personal questions are nothing,
principles are all in all. We are but at
the beginning of a civil war."
A Warrant for De Hord,
PARIS, June 25.—A warrant has been
issued for the arrest of the Marquis De
Mores and the seconds in the duel which
resulted in the death of Cajttain Mayer,
of the Engineer corps. Tht marquis
expresses deep sorrow at the fatal out
come of the duel. He says that the
combat was fought under conditions
that ought to have prevented a fatal
issue. The marquis shook hands with
his dying opponent before leaving the
Omfton Sentenced for the Murder mt
Mable Swarti at Des Moinea.
DES MOINES, June 25. —The sensa­
tional Crafton murder case has termin
ated in the sentencing of the slayer of
Mable Swartz to fifteen years in the
penitentiary at Fort Madison, The find
ing of the jury about three weeks ago
was murder in the second degree, and to
this verdict the defense raised several
objections, which were argued before
Judge Holmes, before whom the case
was tried. The court delivered a
lengthy opinion, overruling the mo
tion of the defense for a new trial.
As the sentence was pronounced the
defendant'^ mother gave a scream and
went into hysterics, crying, "My poor
boy, it will kill him it will kill me,"
and so violent was the attack that the
court officers had to carry her, as she sat
on a chair, from the room and into the
judge's private office, where restoratives
were used. The wife heard the dreaded
words and swooned. Crafton shook
with agony and shed tears. Bail on an
appeal bond wa4 fixed at $5,000, ana the
defense was given ninety days in which
to file a bill of exceptions.

CHIC-xoo June 25.—Heavy rains dur­
ing tht day flooded basements through
out the city for a third time withiu a
week.: The loss to goods stored in base
menttRin the business districts by the
flood ii csti'uated at 1150,000. Several
buildifcgs w ere struck by light?iing. the
heaviest loser being the Garden halting
works, whof-e plant was damaged to the
extentof (50,000. Several hundred feet
of pawinent was washed out in differ
erent parts of the city.
Wisconsin Towns Damaged.
A dvpatch from Houghton. Wis., says
the da|n at that place is weakening and
will probably go out, entailing enormous
damage. The Chicago and Northwest
ern bridge at Cherry Valley was washed
out and the town is flooded. A tornado
at Cuba City destroyed every business
house in that town. Other towns in
Wisconsin were completely wiped out,
but owing to the great damage wires are
all dofm and information hard to git.
Bridges Gone Out.
Four bridges between Plattsville and
Galena have been carried away. At
Rtx'kfor l, Ills., the water is inundating
the town. A rise of two inches more
will qjispend all business. In South
Rockf6rd the waters have already com
pelled families to desert their homes.
All rauroad traffic has ceased owing to
washotts. Near Davenport nearly 500
wooden bridges spanning the smaller
streams have been carried away. Rock
Island city is flooded and families com
pelled to move out. Such a duluge has
not happened before in til* memory of
the oldest citizens.
Mall Service Demoralised.
CHICAOO, June 25.—The heavy
of the last few days have resulted in the
almost complete demoralization of the
railway mail service. Postoffice officials
say that the damage to the railroads has
never been equaled, and the non-arrival
of mail trains so great. Acting Assist
ant Superintendent Campbell, of the
railway mail service, said: ''Fully
75 per cent of the mail trains have not
arrived, and the service is injured to that
extent. The washouts and floods seem
to be confined almost exclusively to the
West and Northwest, as our Eastern and
Southern states are in mostly on tuna."
A CteraJrynan Executed for tin Murder
of Corporal Carter.
OMAHA. Neb., June 25.—Clinton E.
Dixon, a eavalryman, was hanged here
for thf: murder of Corporal Carter at
Niobrara. The (federal authorities
misled morbid and curious people by
having the execution five hours ahead of
the time announced. Dixon was intoxi
cated when he shot Carter, and was in
cited to the act by a colored courtezan
whom Carter, acting under orders to
clear the camp of such characters, had
spanked with a plank when she refused
to go. Dixon has been several times re
prieved because the time for his execu
tion fell on holidays. The sentiment
against hanging was so strong that the
marshal provided three electric buttons,
each boin# touched by a different person
that none should know who sprang the
