The Silver Faction on Top In the Helm
HELENA, Mon., Sept. 11.—The Re
publican state convention reconvened
at 10 :80, but as the committee on per
manent organization asked more time,
the convention adjourned until 1:80.
From the very start the gold and sil
ver factions locked horns, and up to
adjournment at 5 oclock the silver men
had shown their majority over the gold
faction. United States Senator Man

almost an hour. He urged the dele
gates to carry out the plan recom
mended in the report of the Butte con
ference. That report recommended
both factions to remain together and
nominate a state ticket and adopt a
platform excepting the financial clause,
when the silver men will withdraw and
each faction insert a clause to its lik
ing, besides each nominating their own
congressman and set of electors.
At the night session the convention,
by a vote of 156 to 154, seated the Man
tle contesting delegates from Butte,
giving the silver men absolute control
of the convention. The debate over
the matter was not as exciting as was
anticipated, the delegates having
calmed down before the night session
began. The appointment of the oom
mittees finished the evening session.

STICKNEl'S ELEVATOR SCHEME
Omaha Railroad Men Inclined to Ba la
eredulona About It.
OMAHA, Sept. LL —The announcement
of the intention of President A. B.
Stickney of the Chicago Great Western
'road to build a series of grain elevators
throughout the West, caused consider
able discussion among local railway
men. While nearly all who com
mented on tha matter viewed it in
credulously, there was a general senti
ment that whatever new scheme Presi
dent Stickney was likely to spring on
the railway world at any moment could
never be foretold, and there might be
6ome foundation for the story of his
latest move. Ever since this official
made the startling statements regard
ing the operations of railroads before
the interstate commerce commission,
the officials of other roads have regard
ed him with something akin to awe
and are not inclinded to t^mmeut on
the report that he will build a series of
grain elevators hereabouts, through the
aid of European capital.
Freight Traffic Manager Munroe of
the Union Pacific, said he thought if
Mr. Stickney had $5,000,000 to spend,
he could now buy all the grain elevators
he wanted at very low figures. He
said, however, that the prevailing ten
dency among railroads today was to
do away with grain elevators at all in
termediate points, the shipments being
made directly from the points of origin
to Chicago and other points of destina
tion. Still, if the Chicago Great West
ern road wanted elevators at inter
mediate points, it could probably buy
them cheap now, certainly for less
money than it could build them.
RAILROADS AND ELEVATORS.
Strained Relations i* Kaniai City Cnl

TOPERA, Kan., Sept. 11.—The strained
relations existing for a long time be
tween Kansas City grain merchants,
elevator and milling men, and the rail
roads, has culminated in open warfare.
Hon. C. A. Hutchings, one of the at
torneys for the grain men, has filed in
the circuit court of the United States,
two bill in equity, one against the Santa
Fe, and the other against the Missouri
Pacific company, charging flagrant
violation of the interstate commerce
act, and asking for an injunction and
other relief. The bills are brought in
behalf of about fifty corporations and
co-partnerships engaged in the grain,
and milling business in Kansas City,
Kan. It is claimed that Kansas City is i
unjustly being discriminated against,
and subject to undue and unreasonable
precedent, and advantage is given to
Chicago, St. Louis and other Eastern

Welcomed at Christiana.
CHRISTIANA, Sept. 11.—The arrival

Nansen and the companions of his Arc

press the honor in which the citizens
held the returning'explorer. Great en
thusiasm was manifested. Among
those who took part in the demonstra
tion were 12,000 members of the guilds,
many studeuts, etc. They formed a
guard of honor along the route leading
to the castle, where Nansen was cor
dially welcomed. Here a banquet was
tendered to him and he was decorated
by the king and by the crown prince.
A Lively Row Among Factions at Madl'

MANKATO, Minn., Sept. 11.—Almost
every inhabitant of the village of Mad
ison Lake, this county, is arrayed on
one side or the other of a school tight,
and five arrests on the charge of riot
have resulted. At the school election

A. Campbell, the principal. His op
ponents triumphed, but the old boarc'i
hastened to engage Campbell for an
other year before their terms of office
expired. When the new board came in
it disregarded this election and con
tracted with Joseph Davis of Madelia.
When the two principals each tried to
control the school the result was A row,
and the arrests followed.

NEW ENGLAND'S NORTHEASTER
Considerable Damage to .Shipping, and
Serious Injury to Fruit Trees.
BOSTON, Sept. 11.—The northeast
storm which swept the New England
coast lias not passed, although the force
is somewhat less. The wind comes in
heavy gusts. The rain does not cease,
and the observer at the signal station
says it may not clear before night. Con
siderable damage has been done along
the water front by the combined action
of the heavy rain and the unusually
high tide which prevailed. Many cel
lars were flooded and wharves and low
lying streets were swamped. Aside from
this not much damage was done here.
Reports from New England coast cities
indicate that considerable damage has
been done to shipping, but news of dis
asters will probably not be received for
a day or two.
From inland points come stories of
much damage to crops and fruit trees.
The latter suffered most severely on
account of the hurh wind Ihedamcfce.
