KANSAS CITY, Mo, July 3.-With
flags flymg, lands playing, streets re
splendent with a blaze or bunting and
Of myriads of light, and with the ear
assaulted by a deafening conglomera
tion of bombs, rockets, cracker, ami
the marching of clubs and drum corps
with their confusion of patriotism and
IKditics, Kansas City is tonight usher
ing In the National holiday and the
National Democratic Convention. With
the late influx hare come the Tam
many Braves, the Chicago Marching
Club and many kindred organizations
with "their bands. ' And yet, for tome
reason, many most famous convention
organizations, such as the Duckworth
Club of Cincinnati, are not rcpresent-
ed here, while the Jefferson Clnb of
St. Louis and the Young Men's Louis
ville Club send only a handful of men,
instead of their usual quota of hun
dreds. The most notablg figures of the
party have eonie-wlth the arriving
delegations today. - "
The steady influx , is straining the
city's accommodations to the utmost,
and tonight the people are being
packed In rooms and hallways without
much regard to comfort, so long as
they can get a place to lay their beads.
The actual business of the day con
stated in the final selection, by the Na
tional Committee, of Governor Thoin-
. as, of Colorado., as temisirary chair-
. man of the convention, and the dis
ssal of all - contests, including .the
- seating of Senator Clark and his Mon
tana delegatlou. The choice' of Gov
eriwir Thomas was soinethiug of a sur
prise, as the executive committee had
practically, decided for Major Hose, of
The most remarkable-feature of tb
situation is the sudden sjiift of senti
ment since yesterday, when the dom
inating influence of Bryan was Wery
wiiere manifest, whereas today, many
-delegations took formal action against
a siscifl Ji to i declaration, which is
supjiosed 1o 1h Bryan's sine qua 11011.
The movement took form early In the
day among some of .the mopt influen
tial men of the party, not through any
spirit of opposition to .Bryan. lt le
cause they believed the overwhelm
ing sense of the delegates -was favor-1
able to a simple re-attirmafloti of the
Chicago platform, without a sitccitic
declaration of Hi ti 1 tliat is, a con
servative, instead of radical, iiuaucial
platform. ' '''. 'i
.WILL BE THERE. ' :
- Kansas City, Mp., July 3. Unless the
plans ierfeeted tonight are uiset, Bry
an will attend the Natioual Democratic
Convention after his nomination, if he
is put iu the field early enough to ren
tier it practicable for him to do soJ A
formal invitation has been extended
to him, and he has said that he would
accept. This fact was brought out in
the afternoon meeting of the National
Consult tee. as was also the intention
of the National Committee to have the
nomination for the lresideuey made
tomorrow, If possible. j.
A SENSATION, - j
Kansas City, July X The New York
state delegation furnished the sensa
tion of the day, when, after a sjorniy
session of -three hours they put forth
n candidate for Vice President in the
Itcrson of Judge W. Keller, commis
sioner of charities of the city of New
York. This was done after David R.
Hill had beeu defeated as candidate
for the .New York representative on
the committee on platform, by Judge
A. Van Wyck. aud having liecn offeri
ed New York's endorsement for the.
Vice lresideut. had declined it. There
are those in the delegation, who to
night believe that the delegation lead
ers are playing the same game that
.was played by the Republican leaders
In Philadelphia, when they endorsed
Timothy Woodruff for.VIee President,
and that the name of Keller is pres
ented for the purpose of keeping the
delegates, from voting for any other
New Yorker until they can .vote
either for Towne or for Snlzcr. jSul
eer withdrew in favor of Keller, and
in fact seconded the nomination,
which lends some color to this 1 sur
mise. . - j ,
Hill and Van Wyck were both" plac
ed In nomination as New York's re
presentative on the platform commit
tee. All through the controversy, ex
Governor Hill sat quietly.; Then he
aros aud soon I km -a 11 le engaged in a
word duel with Croker. When the
vote was-taken. Van Wyck was found
to have 30, to lllll 28." Hill at once
withdrew. New York leaders assert
that Cnkers (Tammany's) action trill
hurt, the party In New York.

JOHNSON'S TURKEY .TALK.!

"Darned if a turkey ain't a sort of
peculiar critter,' said Horatio John
son the other day, according to the
Lewlston Journal. "There's a good
deal of human nature mixed in with
lots tlutt is just plain turkey.
"The other day while I was sittin'
in the barn door, one of my turkeys
come Jerkin along and peek In' right
and left, and finally spied a rag on
the ground that every turkey had
leen travelin over since snow; went
off. Turkey picked It up and slatted
it out. That minute every turkey in
the yard started for him. , He run.
It evidently struck him all of a sud
den that he had . got. hold of snritbin
that was mighty valuable. He run
and he, dodged and lie 'ducked, and he
run some more. Every few minutes
some one of them turkeys would get
after him by the wing or by the wat
ties or else by the rag, and there would
be the tug of war. And at last an
other turkey got the rag away and
then .there was another chase.' s Guess
them darn 'fool turkeys 4 would have
been runnin the fat off themselves the
next day if I hadn't set the dog on

"That's just the way with a turkey
Let anv other cfne in the nock get

deal of human nature right there,"

It is quite an unusmit thing for an
Individual to 'send 'a 'roll of greenbacks

what D. E. Wyukoop, a recent arrival
from Traverse City, Michigan, did yes

in the hotel office until after the noon

the Salem Steam Laundry where he
carelessly deposited it upon the re

er about shipments of sheep. "Grow
ers and buyers are somewhat apart n
to prices just now," said he, "hence
the shipments are rather light on all
roads. I look for t lie heaviest shin-
ments this fall that have ever goneN
out.rrom Oregon. Sheep, both mut
ton and stock, will 1? sold in enor
mous numbers, unless I miss my
guefts. As to cattle shipments, only a
dry summer and consequent shortage
of the range can cause heavy sending
out 'of beef stuff. Cattlemen are rath
er independent in their finances, and
therefore are inclined to hold. Al
prevailing prices, shipments of cattle
to the East are precluded.' AH the
beef stuff Is likely to go to the coast

LONDON. July 4. Couriers, who ar

the Southern L viceroys, from British
agencies In Pekln,'glve vivid but .frag
mentary pictures of what Is lelng en
acted in the capltoL These couriers
seemingly left Pekln a day or two
later than the messenger of Sir Rob
ert -Hart, Inspector-general of customs,
who started on the night of June 24th.
They report that the heads of some of
the captured legation guards were le
Ing borne through the streets at .the
tops of spears, followed by zealots
chanting "Tai Y'ang Kuel Tse Tapi.
Tapi" KII1 the' foreign devils, kill
kill,. The city's : millions have "been
roused to patriotic ferver, breaking
out . into wildest excesses,' while oVer
half the city "-could, be heard fighting,
around the r ' legations.- Sir Robert
Hart's runner says, the ' foreigners
were making a List stand in the ex
tensive j buildings and, enclosures aof
the British legation. They had many
dead and wounded." Among them were
many women and children. All were
short of food. . The.' women were
starving as they gave part of their
small allowances to the children. The
foreigners nevertheless . were holding
out under a terrible fire, upheld by the
hourly expectation of relief. They
were unable to return the fire of the
Chinese, except at moments when an
assault seemed imminent. . The ma
chine guns and repeating rifles tore
the storming parties to pieces.
The messenger expressed the beliei
.that it would be iniKssible for the
foreigners to resist much longer, as
the Chinese were preiwring to batter
down the-wtIls of the court yard, and
the defenders' ammunition was run
ning low. .Orders were given, by
Prince Tuau. the messenger said, that
since some had In-en killed not anoth
er foreigner should le left alive.
Extreme precautious had oen taken
to prevent the foreigners from com-inimW-nting
with any one outside the
city, and a ' numler 'of runners who
were sent omVwere killed by the Chin
ese, nils -messenger succeeded In get
ting through' by smearing ' bis face
and clothes witli blood, and joining in
the outcries 'against the "foreign

TWINS CUT APART .
. BY A SURGEON.
Remarkable Operations Are Por.
formed on Two Sisters in

Rio : Janeiro. Brazil, via .Galveston,
Tex., Sunday. Remarkable operations
have been performed on Rosa Una and
Maria, s two sisters, who were liorn
Joined together. Tlie sisters are doing
well. Their case' resembles that of
the , famous Siamese twins, but mod

Itosalina and Maria, the two little
Brazilian children, who but for1 the
interposition of "modern science would
hare had tq live joined to each other
as they were, are about ten years old.
Their parents, concerned as to their
future." last winter determined ta
seek the aid of surgeons, and to that
end took the twins to the Hospital
Misericordia, in Rio 'Janleio, where
tier were put in the case of Dr. Al
The two, were Joined In a manner
similar to the Siamese twin, only
still ' more, closely. Use of the X ray

There was a sensation in New York
medical circles In tlie spring of lS!Ci.
when Mrs. J. Kwhler. of - 312 East
Forty-second street, gave birth to girl
twins, who were joined diagoualiv
from tlie lower part of the spinal -oi-umn
to the npper part of tlie iwlvis.
A- peculiar feature of this ease was
that though Joined at the back, the
ligaments were so elastic as to allow
the twms to. face each other.
Mrs. Henry Jones, of near Kokoho,
Indiana, gave birth to twins eonn-it-i
at the hips, ami lower alslomeu fm
June. 1887. No Tital parts were nn
nectel except the spiual column,
which was continuous from one end
to the other; ! . ,
Ttadlca and Doidica, natives of Oris

years ago. are two little girls who. are
attached .from breast to breast by a
flexible bony I connection, Whnv
developed the fact that the seventh
ribs were united by a solid osinx;
formation, nnd that there was but one
liver for the two. It was not dirtl-i
cult to sever the flesh aud lsne.' but
when It came to , dividing the liver
Dr. Ramos hesitated. Nevertheless,
there have been eases where part of a
diseased liver has liecn removal, ho
the physician was encouraged to make
T?7e attempt. ; j
The first part of the oiwration was
completed early In the winterj when,
the ribs were cut apart. The shock
was so great to the patients that it
was deemed necessary to wait for a
time- before completing the separii-i
tion. - ..-'-! !.' ' 1 :
Cases like this are rare. The most'
famous is" that of the Siamese it wins,

who were unitl at the anterior part
of the chest by a flesliy ".lfgaiiient. '
All aftempts to 'separate them without
endangering their -lives proved . futile.

HARVEST AFTER THE FOI RTH.

A very larpe numlH-r of farmers are.
coming to I'eiidletoii to celebrate this 1
year, so say those who have made
inquiries among them. But.' Im:itil- '
la county's ;great wheat harvest will
be in almost full blast on the day-af-j
ter tlie Fourth of July. That has
been the dale set most jrenerally for
the machines to 1h 'started in too-I:
earnest.' Tn a few- localities c-utthig'
has lieen in progress for two week,
but, this has iH'en only where, the
grain ' always rIiMns earlier than is
common In this county. And in a few"
sections; the grain will not quite
ready, on July 5th. But, as a rule, the
cutting will lwgin on that day.
From the most reliable fnnners.lt."
is learned that, while the yield in Uv
tal will 1h very large, the yield per
acre". will not likely lo so great as has
beeu all along looked for.' Increased "
acreage must give tlie Increase -over
last year's production, as- tlie hea ls
are not so large, the number .-of -grain
In' each mesh lieing less than in year
when phenomenal crops have.' been
harvestedj 1 J . 1
But the increased acreage will more
than make up for what would Uvtho
loss from smaller meshes, 'so that tlie.
crop of Umatilla,', county 'will surely
be not less than 5.O00.OIW) bushels.
As to quality, it Is Isjund to lie su
perb.' There, are thousand of. acres
that will go numlsr one, and. as a
matter of fact, little cHHiaratively
will grade below number one.
This Is the. consensus .of opinion at
this stage of the crop produftiou, a
large numlier of farmers having been
Interviewed on the crop situatMu.
