Cincinnati, June 29 The big music
hall was gay with bu itin .', plants, flow
ers, temperance inscriptions and por
traits ol Washingtoi, Lincoln, Neal
Dow and Frances W'llard, when the
Sixth National convention of the Pro
hibition party waa called to order by
Chairman Dickie, of the National com
mittee, this morning, 'Ihe proceedings
opened with the hvinn "America" on
the organ, the audience rising and join
ing in tne singing. At toe conclusion
Dr. J. G. Evans, of Bedouin Collese.
Illinois, offered a prayer. Rev. Dr. M.
C. Lockwood, of Cincinnati, welcomed
the delegates in I ehalf of the city and
State, Baying among other thing, that
the organized labor of the country was
beginning to appreciate the fact that
the labor and saloon problems are insep
arable, and that labor could never rise
while the saloon flourished.
Professor Dickie responded in behalf of
the delegates and said the prohibition
ists knew precisely what they wore here
for and exactly where they were going,
and there was no danger that any ob
stacle would divert them from their re
lentless purpose. "We are here," he
added, "to put candidates in nomina
tion and keep them in the field until the
polls close next November." This allu
sion to no fusion with the people's party
waa loudly applauded. The speaker
further said the delegates were here to
make an unequivocal platform and closed
by naming Ex-Governor St. John as
temporary chairman. Wild cheering
and waving oi nags and handkerchiefs
greeted the mention of the famous Kan
sas man and was renewed as he stopped
on the platform and assumed the gavel.
Governor St. John thanked the con
vention for the honor of being chosen to
preside over the "Greatest, grandest
convention in sobriety, moral force and
brain power evor convened on the
American soil," and continued: "It
represents a parly that dares to do right
because it is right and condemns wrong
because wrong. It stands for peace,
prosperity and happiness to every home
and death to every saloon in the land.
It demands for women equal pay in the
shop and equul say at the polls, a free
ballot for the white men of Penn
sylvania, Massachusetts and Iowa as for
the black men of Mississippi, Louisiana
and South Carolina; that the North,
the South, the East, the West and
black and white, rich and poor, every
human being shall have protection of
lile and property; that the expenses of
government be levied on the wealthy
instead of the necessities of the people.
We claim that any system which im
poses a high tariff on the food, fuel and
clothing of the poor and lets the dia
monds o: the rich come in free legalizes
robbery under the guise of protection
and ought to be forever abolished; that
all money should be issued by the gov
ernment; every dollar, whether gold,
silver or paper, should stand upon an
equality before tne law for all purposes ;
that the coinage of both metals be free.
Speaker continued urging government
ownership of railways and telegraph,
the election of President, vice-President
and secretary of States by direct vote,
the extension of the Presidential term
to six years with no successive term,
the suppression of monopolies, and con
tinued: "Legalized liquor traffic for
beverage purposes ia the greatest mo
uoply that ever existed ; it destroys a
hundred and fifty thouaand lives, and
costs a billion and a half dollars an
nually; sends misery, poverty, crime
and heartache broadcast among the peo
ple; it ia the product of Democrat and
Republican rule, a damning blot upon
civilization, a sin against God and ought
to be made a crime against humanity
and driven from the face of the earth.
The Prohibition party is the only party
that dares fight this mightieat curse of
the world. Here we are and here we
come to stay. From this hour let no
fusion, no deals, no compromises be our
motto. Let our platform be so broad,
just, clear, comprehensive that all who
lovo God or home or country can join
the procession now rea ly to move on to
victory." The speech was frequently
interrupted by enthusiastic applause.
The temporary rules reported by the
national committee provided that only
delegates present should vote. It was
objected that this would disfranchise
the distant States, and alter a hard fight
the rules were amended to allow dele
gates present to cast the full vote of the
State. The roll of States was called and
the names of members of the standing
committees announced. Pending re
ports from the committees on creden
tials and permanent organization the
convention took a recess till 4 p. m.
Miss Frances Willard was in favor of
withdrawing the Prohibition presiden
tial candidate should the People's party
put up a candidate satisfactory to the
executive committee of the Prohibition
ists. It is evident the convention is
against her on this proposition, how
ever. K.rnnr-'H Hoom Asuumlnc a llaauilful

Omaha, June 211 The boom for Sena
tor Stewart as the nominee for the Peo
ple's party has taken an impetus. Some
one has sh iwn where, previous to the
old party nominations, Senator Stewart
said : "If Cleveland and Harrison are
nominated the electoral vote of Nevada
and all the silver States will go to the
independents." More than this, it is
announced today positively by friends of
Senator St wart that he would accept
the nomination. Many were and will
be surprised to know that there is a
tight against Weaver in his own dele
gation. Whether the fight will be
strong enough to injure Weaver's
chances is not yet known.
I u.ou.hu tauuot Vote for WhllelaS
Omaha, June 29 There is a decided
Gresham feeling among the labor unions
of this city and GreBham talk can be
heard wherever laboring men are
gathered together, and the mention ol
the Judge's name is the signal !or
praises. Greaham sentimentisespecially
strong in the Typographical unions of
Omaha, South Omaha, and Council
Bluffs. Printers, aa a rule, are rather
independent in their political views, and
this year they will be more so than
usual, because of the peculiar conditions
of the campaign.
"We can scarcely hope to elect
Gresham," said a labor unionist, "but he
may become to labor what Fremont was
to the Republican party the man who
blazed that path through the wilder
ness." A member of the Omaha Typograph
ical Union said : "A more radical Re
publican than I am does not live, but I
cannot go for Raid. It was an insult to
union labor and a direct slap to the
nnion which guarantees me a livelihood
and a decent burial. I am one of a great
many in Omaha who will not vote for
Reid ; but we will vote for Gresham."

New York, June 29 Inspector Fred
Jarvis, one of the shrewdest of the Scot
land Yard detectives, is in this city,
presumably on important business for
the British police authorities. He ar
rived on the Cunarder Umbria on Sat
utday, and on Monday he called on
Superintendent Byrnes.
Yesterday he was closeted for a long
time with Chief Inspector Steers, De

I.. .. Anrw .t.ni r..
spector Jarvis was here simply on a
visit to his tattier-in-law, wno is a wen
known resident of Yonkers. Neither
Byrnes or Inspector Steers would dis

Jarvis is doing here.
It was learned, however, that In
spector Jarvis has been sent here to

of two young women with strychnine,
and who is also charged with having at

persons, among them the son of William
Henry Smith, the English cabinet min
ister, by charging them with having
poisoned the girls. Neill was at one
time a resident of Saratoga, N. Y.
Another part of the mission of Jarvi9
is said to be looking after the move
ments of William Henry Hurlburt, the
litterateur, formerly a resident of this
city, subsequently of London and at
present believed to be in Mexico with
his wife. He is a fugitive from justice
and a warrant is out lor his arrest for

In Dzisak, Turkestan, 130 died in four
days. The epidemic prevails in a more
virulent form at Waahka, in the Trans
Caspian territory. Brandy, BUgar and
tea are daily distributed to the troops.
The bars that the disease would invade
Euroueau Russia have been realized.
and already several hundred cases are
reported this side of the frontier. The
i uhabitants and troops along the frontier
are panic stricken. The wealthy classes
are seeking safety in night. It is re
ported cholera has appeared at Tsar its in,
on the Volga.
If true, the scourge is almost certain
to ravage the famine-stricken provinces.
Officers have been dispatched to Ta.irit
sin and Tifiia with full author ty to
adopt all measures to arrest the spread
of cholera through the railway traffic.
The scourge is abating 'at Meshed. The
official reports say there were 374 deaths
out of 512 attacked during the month of
June over a wide area. This is not
alarming especially in view of the rate
of mortality.
Vienna, June 29 Germany and Aus
tria are acting in concert to prevent the
entrance of cholera. Professor Drasche,
of the Vienna sanitary board, who has
been studying cholera for thirty years,
thinks it improbable that the disease
will spread beyond Russia, even if it
gets a foothold there. He says in other
countries a bad sanitary Bystem like

Until late last evening her identity was

Sunday night and that the description
of the figure and clothes of the suicide

Denneb, Colo., June 27 The arrest of
E. J. Ryan, who is wanted in Wash

United Statie Express Company of
$50,000 last Tuesday night, was a clever
piece of work on the part of Chief De
tective bam Howe, who seized Jtvan as
he stepped from the Rio Grande train.
When arrested he had on his person
$3,250, and he states that $41,000 is on
deposit in Pittsburg. After committing
thecrimeRyan went to Pittsburg where
he placed $41,000 in the Safe Deposit &
Trust C'o.'s vault. The next heard of him
was at Kansas City wb .'re he boarded the
Missouri Pacific train, for Denver. His
peculiar actions attracted the attention
of the Pullman conductor who judged
Ryan to be a spotter. Once when he
opened his va iae, the conductor noticed
a large roil of currency with the express
company's wrappers. At Pueblo Ryan
got off the tram and failed to get on as
it left. His traveling cap and grip
were left in the seat. This was
at 9 o'clock in the morning. The con
ductor took the Batchel and cap to the
Pullman office in the Denver Union De
pot and went to Detective Howe'i office
where he told his story. The detective
knew at once that it as the man he
had hoped but hardiy expected to meet.
He went at once to the depot and
watched all trains from Pueblo. At 7:30
o'clock tonight his man lelt the Rio

office, got bis grip and started up town.
At this point he wag intercepted and at
police headquarters he admitted his
guilt aud told where the money might

Tba Policy la Advocated by the Colo-

Lonoon. June 29 Among the impor
tant resolutions to be discussed by the
Chambers of Commerce congress ia the
following: The Winnipeg (Manitoba)
Board oi Trade will move that it is the
opinion of this congress that the time
has come or is close at hand when the
people of Great Britain can with confi
dence look to the colonies and depen
dencies of the empire for that portion of I
their breadatuna which they nnd it is
necessary to import from year to year.
The rapid development oi the grain pro
duction of Canada, India and Australia,
during the past ten years clearly indi
cates that these countries will soon
have annually an export surplus of grain
in excess of the annual import demand
of the British and it will be altogether
unnecessary for the latter to look for
supplies to foreign countries, especially
those whose tariff is so framed aa to
strike specially at the trade interesta of
Great Britain and the British colonies.
That tins congress sees the best
method of securing this end by the sys
tem in the mother country of tariff dis
crimination against the grain and other
food products of foreign nations and in
favor of the import of such goods from
the colonies and dependencies and sim
ilar discrimination by the colonies and
dependencies in connection with the
tariff on other goods required lo be im
ported by them. That this congress
favors such movement, and believes its
enforcement would serve as a check
upon the national selfishness which at
the present time seems to inspire many
nations in framing their tariff laws, that
its enforcement would prove a commer
cial counter irritant, which would, in a
comparatively few years, practically
force the great nations oi the world into
a much freer system of trade iuterc jurse
than now exists between them.
Similar resolutions, favoring a tariff
retaliation againat the United States
were presented by the chain oers of com
merce of Montreal, Toronto and Regina
N. W. T. The Clumber of Commerce,

ket as the best yet found lor the princi
pal Btaple sugar.
A delegate oi the Regina Board of
Trade will offer the following: Re
solved, that the Board of Trade of Re.
na, N. VV. T., would heartily favor the
extension of commerce and trade upon
a preferential basis throughout all parts
of the British empire, and it would be
of higheat collective and individual ad
vantage. Further, that the provisions
of any foreign treaty imposing limita
tions upon the full development, of trade
between Canada and other parts of the
British empire should be ut onoe abro
gated. In advocating the above, we
wish it understood while we desire free
trade with the British empire we have
no desire to interiere now or at any
time with the fiscal or political liberty
at present enjoyed by self-governing
colonies, and we believe if such scheme
could be carried out in the near future
it would be a just retaliation to the
United States for the recent legislation
effecting trade retaliations on Great
Britain and Canada with the United

Another kind of open-air business is

Washerwomen and scrubbing-women

which is aaid to rank next to godliness.
These workers of the glib tongues and
crimson arms may be seen any clay
kneeling on floating bridges, and be
laboring clothes with a wooden imple
ment, reminding of a cricket bat. In
winter, when lakes and canals are frozen
the kneelers have a hole cut in the ice,
and, nothing daunted, they rime their
garments out-of-doors, regardless of tem
perature. The professional scrubbing-wonian
pays weekly visits to homes without
carpets. Her appearance, which ladies
accept as a necessary evil, interfere
with a man's home comfort, and pro
duces on him the same effect as a red

Sweden manufactures aud exports

Quite numerous are women carvers,

workng out geometric designs or Scan
dinavian runic coils in low relief. In
the famous Swedish slojd work, com
prising cabinet making, turning and
carving, women prove themselves fully
as skilled as men.
Then there are the lace makers, pur

Cooking has forever been conceded to

In Sweden the fine art of plain cooking
holds a high standard of excellence.

When a Swedish hostess prepares for
a party at her house, ehe may order ice
cream and dessert from the confection
er's, but she generally depends for the
solid diBhea on an expert female cook
(kokfru), who fills engagementa fur
private spreads. VVhon the menu ia
settled and provisions marketed, the ex
pert arrives and has full sway of the
kitchen, enlisting the services of the
regular cook, who is eager to learn the
higher mysteries of the profession. Be
tween the two female powers the spread
will be made an exhibition of master
pieces of culinary art.
In country communities the trained

Patronized by the peasantry in out-of-the-way
places, we find the "wise old
woman," klok gumma, still held in high
esteem. She is an unlearned botanist
and druggist, cures minor ailments with
herb teas and poultices, and often or
forms Bimple surgical operations.
The iateBt departure in woman's w.irk
is the opening of the druggist's trade to
any woman who will lake a thorough
course of pharmacy and successfully
pass the State examinations.
In telegraph and post offices under
government control many women fill
subordinate positions without great re

those of ttie male employes, who alone
have the stimulating prospect of ad

a pension in old age.
The telephone stock companies em

The day of typewriters and steno
graphers in the city offices has not vet
dawned in Sweden, where business nev

correspondence in handwriting. Many
ladies who write neatly and legibly
make their living by copying legal pa
pers for the courts of justice, or fill posi
tions as clerks in banks and insurance
There are women compositors and
bookbinders. The irrepressible female
book agent, however, does not yet ex
ist in Sweden, and her style of work
would nnd no sympathy in shrinking
Swedish womanhood.
A school of horticulture has quite

Swedish school teachers and govern

at an averse yearly salary of $200, and
a poor "school-marm" has to pay rev

have recently been elected as trustees of
school boards in the city of Stockholm.
The Swedish universities, Upaalaand
Lund, opened their portals to women
over 15 years ago, and have sent forth
many a doctor ot medicine or pnuosopny
ol the gentler sex. So long as the pulpit
and the bar are closed to women they
find it unpractical to study theology and
law as mere accomplishments.

Women lecturers are few and far be
tween ; chiefly on Salvation army and
temperance platforms. Swedish women
seem aa yet tongue-tied in public, and
seldom puBsess the gift oi gab even in
private ; and Swedish men, who are
poor public speakers themselves, hold,
in their conservatism, with St. Paut in
his enjoir.uient that women should keep
their peace in the assembly.
The dramatic stage prides itself justly
on having actresses of unquestionable

If women journrlists are still in the

Good was carried to jail and will recover.
The circumstances are these: Bennett
and .Miss Josie Darling, a beautiful girl,

lor his hip pocket, and Good, who is an
old timer, reached for his boot. But
one shot wub exchanged.
Good is quito elderly, but is said to
have been an ardent suitor of the girl.

PiTTsiit'iid, Pa., June 30 The general

Quay and Chris Magee has been broken
and the battle for supremacy in the Re
publican parly of the State, of which
the defeat of Dolamater lor governor in
1890 was an incident, wi'.l be taken up
The two leaders have been drifting
apart for some time. Ihe positive at
titude of each against the other at Min
neapolis strained the bonds to the
breaking point. Senator Quay's per
sistent opposition to the confirmation of
George W. Miller for internal revenue
collector for the Twenty-second district
is expected to be the last straw.
M.igee'a paper, the Pittsburg Times,
this morning printed a Washington dis
putch, in which these words were used:
"It is asserted that should Mr. Quay
attemp , by his opposition to Mr. M.l-
ler s confirmation, to continue the as
sumption of a right in the political
affairs of the State in which he haa in
recent yours received a severe rebuke,
he may expect to receive a reprimand
direct, instead of through this man, as
in the gubernatorial election of 1890."
This is construed th t Ma-ee will
take oil his out to prevent the return
ol Quay to the United States senate.

Berlin, June 29 Public feeliuz haa
been aroused in an almost unprecedent
ed degree by the report that the Kaiser
lias directed the minister oi imperial
justice to make inquiry regarding the
recent reported interview with Prince
Bismarck with a view to prosecute the
ex-chancellor. The Tagblatt says :
The die is cast. Prince Bismark haa
attained the object for which he has
Btriven during the last two years and
has forced the government to take up
the gauntlet he has so often thrown at
its feet. With the full weightof his his
torical name he exposes chancellor to
the eyes of foreign nations and discred
its him by means of reckless utterances.
All patriots will regard the procedure
with aching hearta. Chancellor Von
Capri vi's question whether Uisinark's
conduct is patriotic will be answered by
a majority of the nation with a nega
tive. Vissische Zeitung says: A single
false step on the part of the government
in the contest now openly embarked
upon may lead to a tragedy. No matter
what the opinion alwut Bismarck may
be, it will not be a Bismarck tragedy.
We merely hope the government will
not execute its threat to take action
against the crettor of German union.
National Zeituug, hopes the patriot
Ism ol Prince Bismarck will lead him to
put an end to the painful spectacle of his
attack on the government. It attributes
his bitter words to disappointment at
the refusal of the Austrian kaiser to
grant him an audience.

that assisted in getting the divorce.
Mrs. Phillips had just completed tlm
sale of some Seattle real estate, and on
making the journey to St. Paul had put
$2,400 ol the money in the lining of her
dress. After the trial ended and Mrs.
Phillips started home she was sleeping
soundly in her berth when the train
reached Tacoma. During her sleep she
dreamed that she Baw Cornelia take
$1,000 of the $2,400 from the lining of
her dress. Un awakening she made an

gone. Mrs. Phillips stepped off the
train at Seattle and took the next train
back to St. Paul. She arrived on

of County Attorney O'Brien. The
attorney procured a search warrant and
another warrant lor the arrest of Cor

Detective Duly and Mrs. Phillips, pro
ceeded to the residence of Mrs. Thomas.

San Antonio, June 30 A letter from
La Salle county, 80 miles southwest of
San Antonio ou the Arkansas Interna
tional aud Great Northern railway, gives
a picture of the drought and desolation
in that section.
In three years it has not rained a
drop. The prairies, once carpeted with
rich grasses, are as bare aa a billiard
table. The streams have gone dry.
There ia no water anywhere. For any
distance as far as the eye can reach
there is not a spot of green.
The sun, reflected from the white
earth, makes the glare and heat almost
unbearable. Deer, turkeys and other
wild game have lelt. Even the familiar
jack-rubbit has disappeared. All the
cattle and sheep have been sold and
shipped into other Slates.
Many of the Mexicans are cowboys or
soldiers. They have no means of sub
sistence and some of them have tried to
farm it, but the seed sown two years ago
remains unsprouted in the ground.
From LaSalle county alone 72,000
head of sheep have been removed. The
citizens today appealed to Governor
Hogg to furnish the starving Mexicans
transportation to cotton districts where
they may find work. An earnest call
for food has been issued.
London, June 30 The second ballot
on the amendment of Sir Charles Tup
per, Canadian high commissioner, to
the lesolution by Medley to the congress
of chambers of commerce of the empire,
resulted today in the defeat of the
amendment. During the first day's
session Medley offered a resolution de
claring that fiscal union between Great
Britain and the colonies by preferential
duties, based upon protection, would be
politically dangerous and commercially
disastrous, and that the arrangement
that would best conduce to intimate
commercial union would be for self gov
erning colonies to adopt, as closely as
circumstances would permit, the non
piotective policy of Great Britain. Sir
Charles Tuppor's proposed amendment
declared that a small differential duty
,-hould be adopted by Great Britain and
the colonies against foreign imports.
When the amendment came up yester
day it was defeated 71) to 34. Sir Charles
challenged the vote and a second ballot
was taken this morning, the amend
ment again being defeated 33 to 55.
