BRICE IS CENSORED
An Exciting Scene in the
SOME. FIERY SPEECHES ARE MADE
John D. GeacbegM Choun Temporary
Ckiiraun of Convention CofHn for
Governor of Connecticut.
Columbus, O., Sept. 19. The demo
cratic state convention met at 10 o'clock
with Frank Hard, of Toledo, 'as tem
porary chairman. In sounding the key
note of the Ohio democrats, Hard eaid ;
"Free wool was worth more than all the
other provisions of the tariff law." He
gave credit for it to President Cleveland,
Secretary Carlisle, Senator Brice and
the democratic congressmen of Ohio.
The platform proposed praises the effi
cient, economical, honest administration
of President Cleveland ; declares protec
tion a fraud and favors such farther re
daction of the tariff as can be made to
the end that purely protective duties be
abolished. Business failures, strikes,
low wages, low prices of farm products
are enumerated as the result of the Mc
Einley law. "We dissent," says one
plank, "from the president's view of the
construction and treatment of the silver
question, and believe silver should be
restored to the position it occupied as
money prior to its demonetization by
the republican party, and to that end we
favor the unlimited coinage of silver at
the legal ratio, 16 to 1, and wijh equal
legal tender power." The platform de
nounces the American Protective Asso
ciation. It favors liberal pensions, a
corrupt-practice law limiting the amount
of money to be expended by candidates
and a law prohibiting free passes on
. The minority committee on platform
reported in favor of adding to that docu
ment a proposal to elect United States
senators by the people. F. M. Gorman,
Tom Johnson, V. K. Kline, A. J. Pear
eon, J. Tyler, Frank Hurd and John H.
Clark, of the committee on platform,
offered another minority report to the
effect that the democrats of Ohio favored
honest money, the coinage of gold and
silver interconvertible without loss, and
opposed the proposed coinage of these
metals at 16 to 1.
A dramatic scene occurred daring the
discussion upon the proposal to elect
senators by ballot. John H. Clarke, of
Mahoning, declared in bitter terms the
senate was- a millionaires' club. The
convention applauded loudly. Mr.
Brice eat upon the platform looking as
pule aa marble. When Clarke sat down
Tom Johnson said he did not believe
Brice had bought his way into the sen
ate. This made the matter somewhat
personal, and great confusion followed.
The chair ruled the proposed amend
ment was not in order.
The anti-free silver proposition was de
feated by a vote of 463 to 319.
The convention, by a vote of 467 to
328, declared in favor of the election of
United States senators by the people.
This is regarded as tantamount to an in
direct censure of Brice. Milton Turner,
the one-armed soldier, was nominated
secretary of state. Other nominations
are : Judge of supreme court, James D.
Ermiston ; member of board of public
works, Harry B. Keefer ; state commis
sioner of common schools, Dr. J. A.
Party of "Kegnlator" Bearnlated.
New Oblbans, Sept. 19. For some
time a party of regulators, young white
men from 18 to 25 years old, have been
going through parts of Vermillion par
ish whipping and otherwise "regulat
ing" negroes who were obnoxious to
them. Sheriff Le Blanc determined to
break up the regulators. Hearing that
under the leadership of Marshal Duho
mene they proposed to "regulate" a
negro named Newton Jones, the sheriff,
with a possee of deputies, lay in wait
Saturday night last. When Duhomene
and his gang came in sight, all armed
and masked, the sheriff pounced on
them and captured ' the entire' party,
nine in number. Meanwhile Newton
Jones, hearing of their proposed visit,
had collected his friends and lay in am
bush for the regulators, not knowing
Highest of all in Leavening Power.
that the sheriff was also after them.
When the party was returning to Abbe
ville, and was about two miles from, the
town, the negroes opened fire on the
gang from ambush, firing only two shots.
They killed two of the regulators, Ko
mare and Shexnadyre, and narrowly
missed the sheriff. As soon as the am
bashers found that it was a sheriffs
posse they fled.
Driven Oat by Miners.
-'Geas Valley, Sept. 19. Four hun
dred members of the miners' union pro
ceeded to Osborne Hill mine this morn
ing and ordered Superintendent Adolph
Schnabel to leave town immediately.
He consented and the committee escort
ed him to Buena Vista, four miles from
town, where he will take an outgoing
train this afternoon. 'All the nonunion
men, numbering forty, were brought to
the surface and consented to join the
union. The machinery is running with
out interrnption. The miners' union
are adopting peaceable .means. They
say the Osborne Hill Company has
lengthened the day's labor and in vari
ous ways violated the rules in vogue
here for many years. The miners have
been compelled to board at the com
pany's boarding-house, and even sleep
there in bunks. Even men of large
families here for years have been com
pelled to leave their homes to keep their
A Plrebag: Captured.
San Francisco, Sept. 19. William
McGreevy, formerly a special policeman,
was arrested this morning on two
charges of attempt to commit arson.
In each instance he endangered the
lives of over a dozen people who were
sleeping in the bnildings which he set
on fire. McGreevy was seen lighting a
pile of old rags which he had heaped up
against the house ef Joe Poheim, but
the blaze was extinguished without any
damage. In the second case the firebug
made an effort to destroy a house be
longing to Daniel Harney, but was again
seen in time and held until a policeman
took him into custody. He gives no
reasons for his sets.'
Barnburners at Work.
Santa Rosa, Cal., Sept. 19. A big
barn on B street, belonging to C. M
Bumbaugh, was burned last night by in
cendiaries. In the barn were two valua
ble horses, a large quantity of hay har
ness, tools and other property, and all
were destroyed. Loss, over $1000, partly
covered by insurance. There have been
a number of barns burned here lately,
and suspicion pointr to the same causes.
Efforts are being made to ferret out the
guilty parties. Four years ago there
were orer a dozen fires of the same char
acter. The officers caught the guilty
parties, and they were sent to the pen-'
San Jose Highbinders.
San Jose, Sept. 19. An attempt was
made early this morning to fire China
town, but it was extinguished with a few
hundred dollars' loss. It was the work
of highbinders, as the secret socities of
Chinatown are again quarreling, and
threats of destruction of life and property
are frequent. The fire occured this
morning a few minutes after the special
officer who is on duty at night had gone

San Jose, Sept. 19. Guy Silcox, aged
15 years, went to sleep on the track in a
yard where the circus cars were stand
ing. One arm lay across the track. He
was awakened by a sharp pain.' A wheel
had cut his arm off at the elbow. The
boy, whose father has a ranch above Los
Gatos,came to town and enjoined the cir

ST. LOUIS and A
Spokane, Sept. 19. The republican
state convention was called to order at
10 :30 o'clock this morning in the Audi
torium by C. P. Sullivan, chairman of
the state central committee. The hall
was crowded with delegates and specta
tors, many ladies being present. Gov
ernor MrGraw-and - party occupied a
box, and he was cheered as he entered
the convention hall, as was Senator
Squire later as he entered the governor's
box. Doolittle also got a cheer. .As
soon as the call was read C. O. Bates
of Pierca CDunty, propose John D. Geo
ghegan.of Clarke county, for temporary
chairman. Geoghegan was elected
by acclamation and he was escorted
to the platform. He .made a brief
speech, which he closed by saying: "If

Memphis, Mo., Sept. 19. The captured
train robbers. Lincoln Overfield nnd
Charles Abrams, are in jail here await
ing the aetioc of the grand jury. Over
field, beyond admitting he was present
at the scene of the attempted robbery,
refused to talk. He lies in bed with his
head covered, crying most of the time.

Informer McDaniel planned the robbery
and coaxed the others into it.
Cattle and Rattlesnakes.
"Cattle seem to have an instinctive
dread of a rattlesnake," said a Texas
ranchman the other day, "and will
take every precaution to avoid a local
ity where they have reason to think
one of these reptiles is concealed. I
was once driving a herd of beeves over
a lonely trail, when suddenly the
leader of the herd, a huge steer, started
back in terror, gave vent to a snort
of warning, and moving to the right,
passed on. Those immediately in his
rear turned to the right or left, and
their example was followed by the
whole herd. On arriving at the dreaded
spot I dismounted, expecting to find
that a rattlesnake had been the cause
of alarm. Instead of finding a serpent,
there in a little tuft of grass sat a harm
less plover, covering her nest, while her
wingsjwere kept in constant and violent
motion. Seen indistinctly through the
grass, she had evidently been mistaken
by the steer for a rattlesnake.
i New "Way of Seasoning; Lumber.
A new process of seasoning Canadian
lumber is being developed, and bids
fair to become an important industry
to our Canadian friends. They have se
cured the control of a German patent
for the treatment of beech and birch
woods. ' By the new process the sap is
sweated out of the boards by being
placed in a green state in steam cham
bers for twelve days, then it is put
into the drying chamber for two or
three days, and by a chemical applica
tion the wood is stained throughout a
rich walnut color. No country in the
world has such forests ' of beech and
birch as Canada. A trial kiln has been
built at Ottawa, and the treatment is
said to be very successful.
