An Exciting Convention.
.Milwaukee, Wis , Aug. 5. What
promises to be ono of the most exciting
political conventions ever held in the
stato was called to oruer at noon today
by Chairman Ed. Coe, of tho republican
stute central committee. C. A. Lam
oreanx, of Ashland, temporary chair
man, was greeted with cheers. He
claimed for the republicans of the Bad
ger state tho credit of having first advo
cated the no nination of McKinley. He
charged the demociatic party with
having brought about the industrial dis
tress by the mistaken policy ot free
trade. Some free silverites seized the
opportunity to lay the blame for stagna
tion to the scarcity of money.
'Coming, as I do, from an iron-pro
ducing section of the country," Lam-
oreaux said, "I have no doubt but
that our people would favor free and un
limited coinage of iron at eome arbitrary
ratio, and there would be about as much
reason in such a demand as there is in
the demand for the free coinage of silver
at 1C to 1."

A Hot Fight
Havana, Aug. 3. A hot
is reported to have occurred between Gu-
ayamas and Melunes, in tie district of
Maczinill, in the provii.i-o of Santiago
de Cuba, in which the lo3 suffered by
the Spanish troops was exceedingly
heavy. The official report gives the
number of Spaniards as 100 pitted
against 1000 insurgents.
The official report further states that
Lieutenant Gonzales and Pintados, of
the Spanish forces, were killed, together
with 50 privates.
Colonel Marco has had a fiyht with
tlte band of Sauguilly on the plantation
of Condesa, province oi Matanza. The
insurgents lost 11 killed and took manv
ide arms. The trcous had two officers
and nine soldiers wounded.
The insnrgents have burned the plan
tation of San Jofqnin, at Abanose, in
Matanzas, causing a damage estimated
at $400,000. The msurzent nanus are
concentrating near the southern portion
of the trocha, and it is reported that
they intend to attack it before long.
Or.Etiox City, Aug. 3. An excited
messenger came galloping into town this
evening with the news that the Wilhoit
stage, which left this city today neon had
been robbed, A dozen to 20 sho's were
fired, two horses were killed and the
pockets and bjggage of the passengers
rilled. It is not known how much prop
ertv was taken. The robbers were in
terrupted in their work by two farcers,
who exchanged several shots with them
and drove them into the woods.
No description of them is given except
that they are both tall, roughly dressed
and apparently young men. Their
cloth masks prevented a view of their
features. The hold-up took place about
4 o'clock this afternoon, and the pursuit
of the thieves was so prompt thai it is
thought their chances of escape are slim
The stace continued on to Wilhoit. The
horses that were killed telonged to Liv
eryman Noblitt, and were valued at $00,
Last season tbe same stage was held

the indoresment of the democratic elect

T. S. Crawford, of Abilene, put the
delegates in a happy mood in a wel
coming address in which be said the
populist party had been one of necessity,
and would live until that necessity
should have passed away.
"This is a year of!;the people," said
Mr. Crawford, "a year for populist

Electric Bitters is a medicine suited for
any season, but perhaps more generally
needed, when the languid exhausted
feeling preyails, when the liver is torpid
and sluggish and the need of tonic and
alterative is felt. A prompt use of this
medicine has often averted Jong and per
hapa fatal bilious levers. No medicine
will act more surety in -counteracting and
freeing the system from the 'toalarial
