After a pause, a ntimber of delegates

Carter made the fllwin- exp:lanation:
"Gentlemen of the ,o-_,nventin: -)w-

diUty Is a peculiarly impressive on, "atU.
the moment, for it is already written
in the boor of fate that the choice of
this convention will he the next Presi-.
dent and Vice President of the United
States. Three years of Democratic
rule have been three years of panic, of
wasted energy.,of anxiety and 'loss to
the American people, without parallel
in o,-ur history. To-day the p:,e,:,:Ole turn
to the Rel-mblican Party. hopefully.
,-,nfidently and it is for, us to meet
their expectatio:ns: it is for us t,,o give
them those candidates upon whom
their hearts have centered, and to give
them clear, straightforward, emphatic
expression o,-f ,ur ,political faith. The
Republican, Party is a party of con-
victions, ahd it has-written its convic-
tions, in the history of the Republic
with the .pen and the sword; with it the.,
supreme question always has been not
what; is merely 'politic', but what is
everl.stingly fright'."
Claims E~veby-thing for His PartE, '
, Referring to' the operations of tariff
and moneta ry laws during'the period of
Republican rule' following the .war, Mr.
Fairbanks. said: .
"2nder the operations of these hon-
est tariff and honest money Republican
laws the country grew in, wealth 'and
power beyond precedent. We easily
.-utst,'il:ped all other Powers in,'the,
commercial !race. :On November 8,
1892, there" was work for every 'hand,
arnd bread for every mouth. We had
reached high-water martK. Labor re-
ceived higher wag-es than ever, and
capital was profitably and securely em-
ployed,. 'The national revenues were
sufficient to meet our obligations and
feave a surplus in the Treasury. or:-.,
eign, and domestic trade were greater
in 'volume and value than they had
ever been. Foreign balances were

largely in our favor. European gold
was flowing toward us. But all 'of this
is changed. The eause is. not hard to
seek. A reaction began when it was
known. that the legislative and execu-
tive branches of the Government were
to be Democratic. The ,Democratic
Party had at'Chicago condemned the,
Republican tariff principles as uncon-'
stitutional, and solemnly pledged itself
to overthrown to, destruction r the, Mc-
Kinley law, and to, the adoption of free
trade as the policy of, the United States..
"This bold, aggressive attack upon the
long-settled policy of the Republican
Party bore its natural fruit in shaken
confidence, unsettled business, and we
were soon -drifting against the rock
of destruction.! j QI
"The inperiled interests of the coun-
try watched:' and waited through the
long and anxious months'for some set-
tlement of the important ques.tAon.
They wanted, an end of uncertainty.
At length the Wilson bill was adopted,
and it was characterized by a Demo-
cratic President a's the child of 'per-,
tidy and dishonor'. It was so bad ,ttft
he would not contaminate his hand by
signing .it. A bill that was too base
for, Mr. Cleveland to approve -is too
rotten for the approval of the Ameri-
can people.
A Great ,Deficiency.
."This important law was wanting in
the primary p'urpose~of a revenue meas-

ure, for it failed to provide adequate
revenue to meet the requirements of
the Government. The deficiency thus
far amounts to some $150,000,000. The
end is not yet, for the deficit, grows
day by day. This leaves the Treasury
and-the public credit in constant peril,
"My'tinie will not permit further ref-
erence to the unfortunate legislation of
the Democratic Party,.nor to the hurt-
ful, demoralizing, effects 6f It. Suffice
it to say that it has:been the great and

By these changes the membership of
tile convention was increased to ,34.\. of
which a majority is 175. and, two-
thirds is 23'2. The apportionment, as cor-
rected,. is as follows:

When Vo-,luWia was reached and the
names of the delegates were read.
James 'E. Alexander addressed the
chair, an,:l stated that Volusia had a
contesting delegation. Mr. 4I:parklnan
said that no n,,otice of a contest had
been presented to the conrmittee, and
that Mr. Alexander might go before the
ered)_ntials eomnnittee when the same
.houldu be nanmeld. Several corrections
ere nlade in the telm:,porary roll call.
Pasco fo( C'hairnman.
This work bei--ng completed, the next
b:tsiness in order was the noi.-nination
of tenlporal.! chairman. The wind, was
taken out o" the sails of the free-tilver-
ites at qhe start. Senator Hartridge
cif Duval did it by placing Senator
Samuel Pasco in n,:,niination for tem-
porary chairman. Mr. Pasco was the
ch,-cU for chairman of the free silver-
iLes at r, heir Ca3LOUS Monday night, and
their p, lans hail nil been laid to nom-
inate him with a glowing speech. R.
A. Burford off Maribn Cou41ty had been
selected for this purpose. but he was
too sl,-,w in catching the eye of Chair-

St. Louis, Mo., June 16.-Auspiciously
and serenely, beneath a, sky across
whose arched done not a cloud floated,
the chi.bftains of the Republican Party,
from the wineries of Maine to the sun-
kissed hills of California. from the or-
ange groves of Florida to the placid
waters of Puget Sound, rnet in council
to-day, and in the presence of about
8,000 spectators entered upon the work
of selecting candidates and enunciat-
ing policies for the campaign of 1S96.
Chairman. Carter of the national corn-
mittee dropped the ga\'el at 12:20). and
ninety minutes later an adjournment
was taken, until 10 o'clock to-.o:,rrow.
NoL a jar marred the proceedings: no
sensational incidents aroused nor any
demonstrations thrilled the vast con-
course of people.
The temporary chairman. C. W.
Fairbanks of Indianapolis. delivered
his address, a strong, forcible sentiment.
In arraignment of the present Adniin-
istration and in definement of the is-
sues: the committee selections of the
various delegations were announced-
that was all. Those who expected some
allusion to McKinley that would loosen
the bottled-up enthusiasm for the lit-
'tie Napoleon, which perhaps has no
fight to uncork it. or who imagined
that perhaps some of the great leaders
or orators of the party would be called
to the platform to fire their imagina-
tions and quicken their pulses, were
disappointed. It was purely a, formal
session. The recognized heroes and
generals of the paarty entered, the hall
without d(lem,:nstrati::)ns-Platt. Lodge.
Depew. and Quay were applauded, but
Mark Hanna did not create a ripple
when he entered with a smiling and
confident air.

Havana. Cuba. June 16.-The friends
of GeneralBradley, Johnson, who has
been in Cuba for several weeks, are
becoming vory uneasy about his fate.
He left here on Saturday morning for
Matanzas. and expected to return on
Sunday. The Matanzas train to Hava-
na was derailed yesterday by a dyna-
mite explosion p:erpetrated by 'the in-
surgents. Two passengers were badly
wounded and were carried to Matan-
zas. The friend, ,-,. General Johnson
have rnad,' an effort to. hear from him.
but without avail. Consul-General Lee ,
says that he believes that General
Johnson will return to-morrow:
General Johnson's baggage was vety
carefully registered for Matanzas. Not-
withstanding the military pass from
Governor Dubose. the (officer at Matan-
zas examined General Johnson's valise.
The Discussion says that Governor
Dubose was very much displeased at
issuing the passes; that be'did not wish'
General Johnson to,,. visit Matanzis.
Governor Dubl:ose deni.vs this. and says
that lie will w'rite a letter of'denial to
the Discussion.

r(cala, June 16.-Delegates began to
lve at the tent some time before
.ib They located their positions and
bupled the seats assigned to them.
Ke press representatives gathered on
platform, and soon after 12 o'clock
|gtins of music were heard in the dis-
ce, and it was then known that the
mfst Florida contingent, headed by
(orel Ch'ipley and the Escambia dele-
tion, had arrived. A few minutes
fer the column halted in front of the
t, and the delegates immediately
fook their seats.

ailhat that question made no diff-
'iYep' it does." "down him."" "sit
down." were heard from the s.lverite
camp at these expressions.
Mr. Hartridge obtainedd the floor
again, and said: "We are all here as
Democrats. and all Democrats. no mat-
ter what their views on the financial
question may be. should, be accorded
a respectful h'-aring. No one should be
called down. no matter on what side
of the question he may speak. Demno-
cracy has always stoo,,d for fair play,

These expressions were greeted with
applause, an.] had the effect of calming
for the .time at least the turbulence of
the s-ilverites.
Senator B. H. Palmer. the silverite
leader. at last gained recognition, and
gave his endorsement to the nomina-
tiom. John A. Henderson of Leon moved
that the election be by acclamation,
and the motion was carried without a
dissenting voice.
The Senator's Speeoh.
The chairman appointed Senator
Hartridge of Duval, Hugh Macfarlane
of Hillsboro. and GeogeT. Morgakn of
Escambia (three gold men) to eso3rt
Senator Pasc:, 'to the chair. This was
done amid applause, and Mr. Hart-
ridge introduced Mr. Pasco.
In taking the chair, the Senator
thanked the convention for the dis-
tinfguished honor. His remarks were
principally significant from the fact
that he did not touch upon the finan-
cial question at all. nor did he allude
to President Cleveland. He was glad
to see a united Democracy in the
State, and"he trusted that care would
be exercised in selecting candidates, as
these would be the State officers for the
next four years. He said that he had
been in Washington for the past six
or seven months, and that Congress
was controlled by Rer'blicans and
Populists. and it did him good to see
such a gathering of Democrats -once
more. He expressed several times his
intention to preside fairly and im-
parttally, and his hope that he would
have the co-operation of the members
,if the convention to this end.
The free silverites were evidently dis-
appointed in the remarks of the Sen-
ator, as he alluded not so much as once
to Ihelr pet idea. and gave them no
cause whatever to render applause.
Dr. Dancy of Duval afterward nom-
inated E. B. Darlin, sound money, of
Orange County, for temporary secre-
tary. Nat Walker, sl1\ierit, of Wakul-
la, and W. D. Randall. sound money,
of Clay. were made assistants. Walker
was not chosen-as assistant on account
of his free silver views, but rather be-
cause of his abIlity as a reading clerk
gained in the Legislature.
e Senator Palmer moved that each del-
egation appoint one member for a
member of the committee on creden-
tials. Senator Hartridge moved to
amend by having the chairman of each
delegation name its member of the
committee. The amendment was ac-
cepted, and the motion was carried.
The committee was made up as follows:

The Spanish Cortes has been in ses- ,1^)1--
sion for a number of weeks, but as .
yet has not reached the Cuban ques-
tion. owing to the length of time re-
quired to organize. After the speech ,. .
from the throne'all business is sus- .'
ended until the creleutials of newly ;iv.'
elected members of the Cortes are ex'#. '""i
mined. This takes a surprising length .
of time. much longer than the delaying
the United States incident to the selec-
tion of committees by the Speaker of
the House of Representatives. This 0
fact makes the cables silent as to the
proceedings at Madrid. It is believed
that the organization will be perfected
within a week or two, after which, the
first subject considered will be Cuba.
The Government has a good majority .' \
in the Cortes, and it is expected that
there will be early and favorable ac-
tion taken on the plans outlined in the
speech from the throne for giving home
rule to Cuba on a far wider scope than .
has been previously suggested.

Philadelphia. pa.. June 16.-The al-

making a triumphant return from Cuba,
where it landed a successful expedition,
arrived at the Breakwater to-night,
and after being examined by the quar-
antine physicians proceeded up to Mar-
cus Hook, and anchored for the night.
During its brief stop but little informa-
tion could be obtained regarding its ,
latest venture, but from what was
learned it is understood that the report
of its being chased' by 'Spanish war
vessels while in southern waters was
without foundation, as no such vessels
were encountered.

Sacramento, Cal.. June 16.-The Cal-

met here this afternoon. The main
feature of the opening session was the
fight for recognition between opposing
delegations from Sari Francisco, one
representing the so-called junta, the
other supporting the old regime of
Christopher Buckley. the blind ex-boss
of San Francisco. The Buckley men
broke into the convention hall before
the doors were opened, and occupied
the San Francisco seats. When the
convention was called to order there
was a long and lively fight between
candidates from the opposing factions.
Finally the junta men were seated. It
Is conceded that the convention will de-
clare for the free coinage of silver.

held in the Methodist, Presbyterian,
and Disciples Churches. At the Meth-
odist Church the programme was va-

plained that the purpose of the collec-
tion was to aid poor persons -to ob-
tain a collegiate education. He gave
the origin and meaning of "Old Glory".:
The decorations were very beautiful.
A large flag was hung in the rear of the
pulpit and another was suspended over
a large cross made of magnolia leaves.
At the Presbyterian Church the sing-
ing was very fine, and the exercises of
the infant class were highly creditable.
Addresses were made by the superin-

were the best ever seen at this church.
At the Disciples Church declamations

[Speciat to thp. Citizen.]-
Tampa, June 16.-The two hundred
or more cigarmakers at Ellinger's fac-
tory in West Tampa are now out of
work. They declare that they are on
a strike, but the manger of the factory
says that the factory has simply shut
down. Last week an order was issued
in regard to the disposition of the
scraps left over from the day's work.
This order did not suit the 'men and
the consequence was that the order
was revoked. Matters ran along
smoothly until Saturday night, when
the moving spirits in the protest were
discharged. This greatly incensed the
remaining men. They held caucuses
and discussions and an agreement was,
decided upon that they were all to go
to work yesterday morning' and to
work until breakfast time, and then de-
mand that the discharged men be put
back to work or they- would strike.
Yesterday morning the men went to
breakfast as usual, and when they re-
turned to the factory they found it
closed against them. Thus the action
of the men was forestalled, and
they did not have an opportunity of
striking. The impression is" that the
differences will soon be arranged sat-
isfactorily and that work will be re-
Mayor's Limit on -Gaanbling Expires.
The Police Court did not sit to-day,
for the first time in many days. Police
Recorder Simonton has been out of the
city several days, and Mayor Gillett
has been holding court, but that gentle-
man left last night for Ocala to attend
the State Democratic Cornvention, and
this leaves the city without a presiding
officer, so far 'as the Police Court is
concerned, although President of the
Council A. C. Moore is acting as
Mayor. The! Mayor's limit bn the
gambling expired last night. When, he
was inaugurated he notified all the
gamblers in the city that' anyone
caught inr the gambling business after
the 15th inst. would be dealt with se-
verely, and now that the time has ex-
pired the "fraternity" -is more on the
alert than, it ever was before. Many
of the gambling houses, were closed
last night by the keepers, who did not
seem to care about taking advantage
of the last night that they were al-
lowed to run under the recent orders.
The gamblers acknowledge that. they
believe that the game is up so far as
Tampa is concerned during Myron E.
Gillett's term as Mayor. A number of
them have already left the city. Dur-
ing, the, next few" many other
people oth fcers will be

the percentage was 17. The offenses

Gives Hip Views on the Demno-
cratic Situation.


Looks to the Common Sense of the Peo-
ple To Save the Party frown Free
Silver Fanaticism Ready To
Retire to- Private Life.

[By Associated Press.]
Washington, D. C., -June 16.-In re-
ply to a request from the New York
Herald for a statement concerning the
Democratic situation, President Cleve-
land to-hight sent the following to
that newspaper:
"I have made no figures as to the
probable action of delegates already
chosen, or to be chosen, to the Demo-
cratic National Convention, but I re-
fuse to believe that when the time shall
arrive for deliberate action there will
be engrafted upon< our Dremocratic
creed a demand for the free, unlimited,
and independent) coinage of silver. I
cannot believe this, because I know
\the Democratic Party is neither unpa-
triotic nor foolish, and because it seems
so clear to me that such a course will
inflict, a very great injury upon every
interest of our country that it should
be the mission of Democracy to advance
and 'will result in lasting disaster to
our party, organization. There is little
hope that as a means of success this
free-silver proposition,, after its thor-
ough discussion, during a political cam-
.paign, will attract a majority of the
voters of the country. It must be that
many of the illusions influencing those
now relying upon this alleged panacea
for their ills will be, dispelled before the
time shall come for them to cast their
ballots that will express their sober
second thought. The adoption by the
Democracy of this proposition would,
I believe, give to our opponents an ad-
vapntage both in the present and future
that they do- nbt deserve.
"My attachment to true Democracy
is so strong that I consider its success
as identical with 'the promotion of the
.country's good. This ought ,sufficiently
to account for my anxiety that no mis-
take be maede at our party convention.
In my opinion no effort should be spared
to' secure such action of the delegates
as will avert party demoralization. It
4is a place for consultation and com-
parison of views, and those delegates
who believe in the cause of sound
money should there be heard and be
': constantly in evidence.
"A cause worth fighting for is worth
fighting" for, to the end. If sound-
money Democratsl" suppose there is
danger of a mistake being made. such
danger shouMld stimulate their activity
in averting it. instead of creating dis-
lc":'o ragemen t. i
"I am very far from arrogating to
myself a controlling influence ulpon the
pouicy of my p1,arty; but as an unflinch-
ing -Democrat. who has been, honoreil
by his party, and who desires hereafter
no greater political privileges than to
occupy a place of private in its ranks.
I hope I may not be blamed for saying
thus much at this time, in the interest,
as"it seems to me. of the grand old or-

Every Product Shows the Good
Effects of the Rain.
The Weather Bureau reports as fol-
lows as to the condlition of the crops in
the State for, the week ended June 16:
So. far as general activity in farm
work is concerned, the week may be
characterized as, potato week, every
section of the State taking advantage
of the good and well-distributed rains
to set sweet potato 'slips. Every pro-
duct of. the State has responded quick-
ly to the sufficiency of moisture. Cot-
ton, corn, cane, peas, and all truck in-
terests show marked benefits. In many
sections where apprehension, ,doubt,
almost disappointment, ruled some
weeks ago, are' now found contentment
and satisfaction With crop prospects.
The Western District reports that cot-
ton is) weeding well and putting on
squares: some blooms to be seen in
many fields. In Wakulla County con-
siderable grass is reported, but farmers
are losing no time 'cleinirug ,0tton

corn are. plentiful, and farmers in Nas-
sau are planting peas, beans, and pota-
toes. The Central District reports
plenty of Ira in and crop conditions
vastly improved. Late corn and other
cereals are reviving, with potato and
tobacco planting active in many sec-
tions. Portions of Orange County re-
port the peach crop the best ever

Mr. and Mrs. George H. Miner of

f,tIrmed the interpreter .,of the object 'of
his expedition. The latter, though a
,old man. paused and, rmionstrate,.
The Indians nmong whom they were go-
ing were among th'- most ,desperate
and .disntented ,f the natio,,n. Many
.:,f tih,_lt I Wer'e vetel'an wttl'Iarriors. !In-
poverished and exasperated,] 1y,5' defeat,
and ready to set their lives .at any
hazard. He said that if they were hold-
ing a war council, it must be with des-
'perate intent, -and it would be certain
'death to intrude among them. *
Duval made light of his apprehen-
sions; he said he was perfectly well
acquainted with the Indian character,
and'should certainly proceed. So say-
ing, he rode on. When within half a
mile of the village, the interpreter ad-
dressed him again in such a tremulous
tone that Duval turned and looked him
in the face. He was deadly pale, and
once more urged the Governor to, re-
turn, as they wouldicertainly be mas-
sacred if they proceeded.
Duval repeated his determination to
go on, but advised the bther to return,
lest his pale face should betray fear to
the Indians, and they might take ad-
vantage of it. The interpreter replied
that he would rather die a thousand
deaths than have it said he had de-
serted his leader when in peril.
Duval then told him he must trans-
late faithfully all he should say to the
Indians, without softeninga word. The
interpreter promised faithfullyrto do
so, adding that he well knew, when
they were once in the town, nothing
but boldness could save them.
They now rode into the village, and
advanced to, the council-house. This
was rather a group of four houses,
forming a square, in the center of
which was a great council fire. The
houses were open in front toward the
fire, and closed in the rear. At each
corner of the square there was an in-
terval between the houses for ingress
and; egress. In these houses sat the
oldimen 'and the chiefs; the young men
were gathered round the fire. Nea-
mathla presided at the council, ele-
vated on a higher seat than the rest.
Governor Duval entered by one of the
corner intervals, and rode boldly into
the, center of the square. The yuung
men made way for him; an old man
who was speaking, paused in' the
nidst of his harangue. In an instant
thirty or .forty rifles were cocked and
leveled. Never had Duval heard so
loud a chick of triggers; it seemed to
strike to his heart. He gave one glance
at the Indians, and turned off with an
air o'f contempt. He did not dare, he
says, to look again, lest it might affect
his nerves, 'and on the firmness of his
nerves everything depended.
The chief threw up his arm. The
rifles were lowered. Duval, breathed
more freely; he felt disposed to leap
from his horse, but restrained himself,
and dismounted leisurely. He 'then
walked deliberately up to Neamathla,
and demanded, in- an .authoritative
tone, what were his motives for holding
that council. The, moment he made this
demand, the. orator sat down. 'The
chief made no reply, but hung his head
in apparent confusion. After a mo-
ment's pause, Duval proceeded:
"I am well aware of the meaning of
this war-council, and deem it my duty
toaWarn you against prosecuting the
schemes you have been devising. If a

try falls to the ground, I will hang you

lie effect of his -words, he
by appointing a day for the
meet him at St. Marks, 'and
.ecount of their conduct. He
thb', rode off. without giving them time
to feover from their surprise. That
right he rode forty miles to Apalachi-
cola River, to the tribe of the same
name, who wdre in feud with the Sem-
;holes They promptly put 250 war-
riors at. his disposal, whom he ordered
to 'be at St. Marks at the appointed
'day.' He sent out runners; also, and
mustered 100 of the militia to repair to
the same place, together with a number
or regulars from the army. All his ar-
'rangement~s were successful.
Having taken these measures, he re-
turned to Tallahassee, to the neighbor-
hood of the conspirators, to show them
that he was not afraid. Here he as-
certained, through Yellow-Hair, that
nine towns were disaffected, and had
been concerned in the conspiracy. He
was -careful to inform himself, from
the same source, of the names of the
warrior's in each of those towns who,
were most popular, ,though poor and
destitute of rank and command.
When the appointed day was at hand
for the meeting at"St. Marks, Gov-
ernor .Dural aet off with Neamathla,
who was at the head of eight or nine
hundred warriors, but who feared to
venture into the fort without him. As

they entered the fort, and saw _troops
and militia drawn lip there, and a force
of Apalaahicola soldiers stationed on
*the opposite bank of the river, they
thought they were betrayed, and were
about to fly, \but Duval assured them
they were safe, and that when the talk
was o-ver they might go home unmo-
A grand talk was now held, in which
the late conspiracy was discussed. As
he had foreseen, Neamathla and the
other old 'chiefs threw all the blame
upon the young men. "Well," replied
Duval, "with us white men, when we
find a man incompetent to govern those
under him, we put him down, and ap-
plint another in his place. Now, as
you all acknowledge you cannot man-
age your young men, we must put
chiefs over them who can."
'So saying, he deposed Neamathla
first; appointed another in his place;
and so on with all the rest, taking care
substitute the warriors who had been
pointed out to him as poor and p.op-
ular; putting medals round their necks,
and investing them with great cere-
mony. Tlie Indians were surprised and
delighted at finding the appointments
fall upon the Very men they would
themselves have chosen, and hailed
them with acclaimations. Warriors thus
-Vnexpectedly elevated to command,
and clothed with dignity, were secured
to the interests of the Governor, and
sure to keep an eye on the disaffected.
As to the great chief Neamathla, be
left the country in disgust, and re-
turned to the Creek Nation, who elected
him a chief of one of their towns. Thus.
by the resolute spirit and prompt
sagacity of one man, a dangerous con-
,spiracy was completely defeated. Gov-
ernor Duval was afterward enabled to
remove the whole nation, through his
own personal influence, without the aid
of the General Government.

Cost of a Coronation.
'The amount of money which Ambas-
sadors are compelled to spend at coro-
nations in Russia is enormous. A spe-
'cial grant of $30,000 was made to the
"British Ambassador on the occasion of
the coronation of the late Czar, but
his expenses far exceeded that amount.
The Duke of Devonshire, who was Brit-

not from "fear of "reconstruction" or
force bills, nor from fear of the hellish
spite of fanatics.
A brave, proud, and unfortunate peo"
pie were humiliated before foreign
hosts at Appoma.ttox. But that humil-
iation was as naught in comparison
with the damnable acts that s.,:,m )fol-
lowed it. Let the? South do right'.Ifrom
principle, and because it is right, not
from policy, and she may rest assured.-
of the love, sympathy, and candid sup-
port of the big-hearted men. -of the
North. She had this even during the
dark days of war and reconstruction.
Let "Ex-Cdnfed" remember that there
is something in life more than dollars
and cents; Had the South .dallied in '.
1860, or done less than she did, it would
have branded her people a's unmanly
and craven. She could not and did
not submit 'willingly and silently to.
outrage, illegal and unjust violence, in- "
sult, and robbery. It is to be hoped"
that "Ex-Confed" is alone in his views,
and that he has left no issue to propo-
gate them. CONFEDERATE.

New Searchlight for Ships.
From the Boston Evening Transcript.
A new and powerful searchlight has
been invented for the purpose of sim-
plifying searchlight operations on
board ship. It is portable, and may
be packed in a box when not in use.
It can be attached in less than a min-
ute. Its weight is just below fifteen
pounds, and it can be handled with the
greatest ease or suspended from a
chain and operated by the officers on
watch. Its peculiar feature is that it-
does not dazzle the sight of the opera-
tor. None of its beams are wasted, and
it gives a high. degree of concentration
of light rays upon the object on which
they are directed. The instrument has,
both automatic and hand feed, and the
focussing arrangement is very simple.
It shows small objects,, such as A buoy,
three-quarters of a mile off, while it
makes sails-visible three miles away.
A Juror from Big Sandy Creek.
From the Atlanta Constitution.
A sick juror to-day, who was taken
with a chill that made the windows-
rattle as if an earthquake was in prog-
ress, delayed the trial at Jeffersonville,
Ga., for several hours. Dr. Slappey
was unremitting in his attention to him
and finally he was brought into court
from his bed in the hotel and the case
resumed; getting sicker, a single bed
was brought into the court room and he
was regularly put to bed, only he did
not disrobe and don his night shirt.
The juror is Hunter Jonson, and he
contracted the chill on Big Sandy Creek,
near which stream he resides.

Ani Attthenti,:- Sketch of Semi-
nole Indian Days.


Putting On a Bold Front Florida's
Chief Magistrate Deposed the
Most Noted Warrior of Ili*
Time--He Left rhe Country.

In the autumn of 1823 Governor Duval
and other commissioners, on the part
of the United States, concluded a treaty
with the chiefs and warriors of the
Florida Indians, by which the latter,
for certain considerations, ceded all
claims to the whole territory, except-
ing a district in the eastern part, to
which they were to, remove, and within
which they were to reside for twenty
years. Several of the chiefs signed the
treaty with great reluctance; but none
opposed it more strongly than Nea-
mathla, principal chief of the Micka-
sookies, a fierce and warlike people,
many of them Creeks by origin, who
lived about the Mickasookie Lake.s
Neamathla had always been active in
those depredations on the frontiers of
Georgia which had brought vengeance
and ruin on the Seminoles. He was a
remarkable man; upward of 60 years of
age, about six feet high, with a fine
eye, and a strongly marked counte-
nance, over-which he possessed great
command. His hatred of the white men
appeared to be mixed with contempt;
on the common people he looked down
with infinite scorn. He seemed unwil-
ling to acknowledge any superiority of
rank or dignity in Governor Duval,
claiming to associate with him on terms
of equality, as two great chieftains.
Though he had been prevailed upon to
sign the treaty, his heart revolted at
it. In ore of his frank conversations
with Governor Duval, he observed:
"This country belongs to the refl man;,
and if I had the, number of warriors
at my command that tthis nation once
had, I would not leave a white man on
my lands. I would exterminate the
whole. I can say this to you, for you
can understand me; you are a man;
but I would not say it to your people.
They'd cry out I was a savage, and
would take my life. They cannot ap-
preciate the feelings'of a man that loves
his country."
As Florida had but recently been'
erected into a Territory, everything as
,yet was-in rude and simple style. The
Governor, to make himself acquainted
with the Indians, and to be -near at
hand to keep an eye upon them, fixed
his residence at Tallahassee, near the
Fowel towns, inhabited bJy the Micka-
sookies. His government palace for. a
time was a mere log-house, and he
lived on hunters' fare. The village of
Neamathia was but about three miles
off, and thither the' Governor occa-
sionally rode, to visit the old chieftain.
In one of these visits he found Nea-
mathla seated in his wigwam, in the.
center of the village, surrounded 1I,5P
his warriors. The Governor had broughhi
him some liquor as, a present, hut it
mounted quickly Into hi, brain, ann|
rendered him quite boastful and bellig
.erent. The theme ever! uprpermost iff
his mind was the treaty with th'
whites. "-It was true." he said. "tt
.-rlA men had made such a treaty. b)
the ,'xhite men had not acted .up to i;.
The red men had received none of '!t
mo,,ny and th'e cattl-e that had be
promised them"; the treAty_- "( h,= reftQ
was a-t air,eyd,-' knt (hey did not meei
to be bound by 'it." '
Governor Duval calmly represent
to him that the time appointed in
treaty for the payment and delivery of
the money and the cattle had not yet
arrived. This the old chieftain knew
full well, but he chose, for the moment,
to pretend ign6ranoe. He kept on drink-
ing and talking,,i his voice growing
louder and louder, until .it resounded all
over the village. He held in his hand
a long knife, with which he had been
rasping tobacco; this he kept flourish-
ing backward and forward as he
talked, by way of giving effect to his
.words, brandishing it at, times, within
an inch of the Governor's throat. He
concluded his tirade by repeating that
the country belonged to the red men,
and that, sooner than give. it up, his
bones and the bones of hls people
should bleach upon its soil.
Dual knew that the object of al! this
bluster was to see whether he could be
intimidated He kept his eye, there-
fore, fixed steadily on the chief, and,
the moment he concluded with his men-
ace, seized him by. the bosom of his
hunting-shirt, and clenching his other
fist: '
I'Tve heard what you have said," re-
plied he. 'Zou have made a treaty,
yet you say your bones shall bleach be-
fore you comply with it. As sure as
there is a sun in heaven, your bones

shall bleach if you do not fulfill every
article of that treaty! I'll let you know
that 'I am first here, and will see that
you do your duty!"
Upon this the old chieftain threw
himseIf back, burst into a fit of laugh-
ing, and declared that all he had said
was in joke. The Governor suspected,
however, that there was a grave mean-
ing'at the bottom of this jocularity.
For two months everything went on
smoothly; the Indians repaired daily
to the log-cabin palace of the Governor
at Tallahassee, and appeared perfectly
contented. All at once they ceased their
visits, and for three or four days not
one was to be seen. Governor Duval
began to apprehend, that some mis-
chief was brewing. On the evening of
the fourth day, a chief named Yellow-
Hair, a r-solute, intelligent fellow, who
'had always evinced an attachment for
the Governor, entered his cabin about
12 o'clock at night, and informed him
that between 400 and 500 warriors,
painted and decorated, were assembled
to hold a secret war-talk at Neamath-
la's town. He had slipped off to give
intelligence, at the risk of his life, and
hastened back lest his absence should
be discovered.
Governor Duval passed an anxious
night after this intelligence. He knew
the talent and the daring character of
Neamathla; he recollected the threats
he had thrown out; he reflected that
about eighty white families were scat-
tered widely apart over a great extent
of country, and might be swept away
at once, should the Indians, as he
feared, determine to clear the country.
That he did not exaggerate the dangers
of the case has been proved by the,
horrid scenes of Indian warfare which
have since desolated that devoted re-
gion. After a night of sleepless cogi-
tation, Duval determined on a measure
suited to his prompt and resolute char-
acter. Knowing the admiration of the
savages for personal courage, he de-
termined, by a sudden surprise, to en-
deavor to overawe and check them. It
was hazarding much; but, where so
many lives were in jeopardy, he felt
bound to incur the hazard.
Accordingly, on the next morning he
set off on horseback, attended merely
by a white man who had been reared


Summer Tourist Books Now Begin
to Appear.
With the arrroac-h of suminier the va-
ri,-uIs railro,,a,:l? and stt.amship lines in
the tourist resrions ,of the North have
bcgun the publication of their cus-
tomary handsome -and interesting -an-
nual guide books. These works, grow
more attractive from year to year. The
Plant Steamship Company occupies the
unique position of a caterer to tourists
in the North in summer as well as
in the South in winter, maintaining
as it does a line with, five trips weekly
during the season between Boston and
Halifax, with an extension also to
Charlottetown, P. E. I. Passenger
Traffic Manager Wrenn announces that
the magnificent new steamer, the
Grand Duchess, will be ready to sail
the latter part of July, and will be put
on the run between Boston and Hali-
fax. In anticipation of the Nova Sco-
tia travel Colonel Wrenn has pub-
lished a. fascinating descriptive book
entitled "Acadia and Thereabouts".
The book was written by Frank Pres-
brey, who has a wide reputation for
work of this class. It is copiously il-
lustrarted in the handsomest half-tones,
with three or four cuts on every page.
In the center of the book is a large
double-page illustration, showing the
three handsome steamers that ply be-
tween Boston and the maritime prov-
inces. The passenger department of
the Plant System will distribute 50,000
copies of the publication in all parts
of the country. It. is a book full of.
valuable and interesting information,
even to those who may not contemplate
taking a summer trip.
In the same Northern region, span-
ning the continent, lies the remarkable
line of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
No railroad scenery in the United
States equals in grandeur, and' the/,fin-
est in -A/exico hardly surpasses, that
of the Canadian Pacific in the Rocky,
the Selkirk, and the Cascade Moun-
tains. We have received from David
Robinson of Savannah, manager, of the
Southern Advertising Agency, "The
New Highway to the Orient", an illus-,
trated book of fifty-pages, many of the
cuts full-page, issued by the Canadian
Pacific, and a smaller pamphlet on
"Quebec in Summer an4T Winter". The
title page of the former work bears a
large picture of the splendid arch
gridge, over Stony Creek, on the east-
ern slope of the Selkirks, that was re-
cently erected" in place of the trestle
bridge, some 325 feet high, that former-
ly stood there. i
Southern Rallway's New Steamer.
The Souithern Railway's fine new
steamer, the Atlanta, will soonf go into
service on the new line between Norfolk
and Baltimore. The Atlanta was built
by the William Cramp & Sons' Ship
and Engine Building Company, of Phil-
adelphia, at a cost of $250,000. Its
dimensions are: Length, 240 feet; beam,
42 feet; depth to saloon deck, 26 feet.
The hull is constructed of steel. The
steamer Is propelled by an inverted
triple expansion engine of the latest
and most approved type, with cylinders
24, 38, and 62 inches in diameter. Run-
ning at 125 revolutions per minute, they
indicate 2,250 horse-power, and drive
the steamer at a speed of eighteen miles
per hour.
The boat is lighted throughout by
electricity; the stem-head, stern fight,
and side lights are electric, and it is
provided with a powerful electric
search light.
The dining-room, which is handsome-
ly finished in hard wood, and has seat-
ing capacity for seventy people, has
been located on the main saloon deck.

Pensacola, June 16.-The appropria-
tion of a large sum of money by the
Louisville and Nashville Ra.ilroad for
the 'improvement of its docks here,
and the establishment by the road of
a steamship line to Liverpool, has ex-
cited the wrath of the Mobile Register,
and all kinds of threats are ,made
against the road. The people of Mobfle
fail to, recognize a fact, that is "patent
to the railroad people, that the new
channel now being dredged will make
Pensacola the port of the gulf, and the
increased facilities it will be able to
offer will make it the outlet for the
great bulk of the cotton, iron, and coal

Dollars Not All of Life.
Editor of ;,the Florida Citizen: What
"Ex-Confed" saYs in your issue'of the
14th on free silver is heartily indorsed,
all ,of it, as is also the deserved com-
mendation of Mr, Cleveland. The South

has always been conservative; always
loyal to the ohe only American sov-
ereign, the Constitution. She had, in
days of yore, many statesmen of brain,
culture, and experience, who profound-
ly respected. law, order, and reason;
men who would not do wrong to ad-
vance party in personal interest; men
who did right because it was right,
and because it was demanded, by law,
right, and the Constitution.
We have such men in the South to-
day, but they are not in the. front,
where they should be, for the issue on
sound money is one touching the vitals
of the States. Sound money touches the
poor man more than the rich. The lat-
ter is better able to take care of him-
self than tQe former. It is a question
with many ramifications, and only
long-headed and experienced ones can
follow it.
So far for agreement with "Ex-Con-
fed". .
Numbers living to-day will hurl back
with indjnatbon and scorn the false
imputation of "Ex-Confed" that the
people of these Southern States were
led by clamor In 1860. The reverse is
true. The people themselves led at that
era; and no people ever moved with
such unanimity and calmness. "A na-
tion'was born in a day". How they ac-
quitted themselves, history attests.
Let the South, the old South, do what

[Special to the Citizen.]
St. Augustine, June 16.-J. E. Ingra-
hamn has just received a letter from the
Danish agent of the East Coast Rail-
way at Chicago, stating that he has
sold forty-four tracts of land, consist-
ing of twenty acres each, to parties
'throughout the Northwest. The deeds
have been signed, and the purchase
money has been paid down.
The agent who consummated this
deal was down here last season look-
ing" for a desirable location for this
colony. He was particularly delighted
with the new town of Modelo, situated
about four miles below New River. He
had the ground laid out and plats ,made
at once, and it was from these plats
that the above sales were made.,
The letter states that the new pur-
chasers, who are all prosperous farm-
ers and men of means, are anxious to
become located on their new lands just
as soon. as possible. With- this object
in view many of them are closing their
business affairs in the North imme-
diately, so as to leave for*Florida, the
first part of July.
The agent states that the new set-
tlers will place the land under cultiva-
tion immediately,, having sufficient
means to "carry out their plans, and
will go in for fruit raising And truck
gardening, paying especial attention to
the Culture of lemons, grapefruit, and
While many will settle upon the lands
early in July, the majority Will not be
able to leave the North on account of
business matters for a month" or two
lAter, but it is their intention to have
the 'colony fully located and in working
order the early part of next fall. All
of the newcomers are energetic men,
thoroughly familiar with farmfing in
'.every detail, and will make a prosper-
ous town of Modelo,
New City Officers.
The topic of conversation on every,
street 'corner to-day is the election of
new city officers, which will take place
in -the council chamber to-morrow
night. This matter is receiving more
than usual attention this year,'as many
are in favor of retaining the old force
of officers, while others are anxious
for a change in the city government.
The hardest fight is expected for the
office of City Marshal. The incumbent,
William Hinch, had made, an efficient
'officer during the ,past year, but it is
said that he will have strong opposi-
tion in the person of John Canova, who

The Rises "Dance.,
\, The second dance of the season given
by the Rifles occurred at t'he Casa Ma-

considerable money. The next dance
will be given at Fort Marion next
Thursday evening, in honor of the

they hope to make expenses, and this
is all that they ask.

Precautions for the ProteefifoB of
Residences Closed for the Sunfite$r.
In thqse, days of globe trotting, of en-
ticing winter resorts, of country hoinfes,
of summer cottages, and atractive ho-
tels at mountain and seashore, the
Lares and Penates of city houses are
often left to' console one another's lbne-: "
lines for many months in, the year.,
Time was when household goods were f
a preplexing burden ,to their owners, '
anxiety !or their safety costing many
an otherwise joyous, care-free moment.
But who shalt be able to estimate the,
enormous load of anxiety that silent.-.
invisible, but omnipotent force of na-
ture, electricity, has lifted from the.
shoulders of even the rich and great?
Now, by merely stepping into a burg-,
lar alarm office, and paying a compara-
tively nominal sum. Any householder
may leave' his home for an indefinite
period with the absolute certainty'that
his possessions, however valuable, Will
be as safe from depredation as though -
he himself, were mounting -guard; ,
Not a door or, window can be opened,
not a ,partition or wire cut-in. fact, the
slightest disturbance cannot take place
night or day without immediately
transmitting a, message of warning: to
the vigilant watchers at the.central of- '
fice that will bring two men with all
possible speed to 'the point molested.' '
During my recent interview at the
burglar alarm office, such a ringk of
warning sounded. The two men who,
were dispatched post haste, soon re-
turned to report that a brickbat had
been ,thrown through one of the win-,
dows of. a beautiful house; perhaps
wantonly, Rut more probably ,to, ascer-
tain tpo what extent the house was pro-
tected: for crooks' shun a house'under
the supervision'of the burglar Alarm,
company as the superstiti,:us shun .
ghot;-. ", ','.
Assoon as a house left in charge-of
the compahy is vacated, representa-
tives of the office are sen-t to make a
careful investigation j.,f the premises
and report asto its equipment and '
general conditibn.
By means of this investigation ,they
often obviate the evil results of the
carelessness of families who, perhaPs,,
have been obliged to leave home in,
haste, and the still greater carelessness
of servants to whom the duty of leav-
ing the domestic' outfit in proper condi-
tion has been entrusted. Sometimes
these representatives have come upon
rare jewels in the'most exposed condi- .
tion on dressing tableor bureau, a val-
uable watch under a pillow, costly brib-
a-brac and silver on mantel and- side-,
board; they have even found valuable
furs wholly unprotected from the dep-
redations of moths, and upon one oc-
,casion a roll of'money loose on a table. ;;
It is the duty of the company to look
after every such detail with the utmost ,
care. In addition to their perfect elec-
tric service they also erhploy a' large
patrol force of uniformed men, who-
cover the' best parts of the city and.,'
keep an extra watchful eye upon, the
special property committed to their:
charge. In view of this perfect equip-_
ment. perhaps it is not strange that
they should rejoice in the proud record
of never having had a mischance. hap-
pen to any property under their im-

A Flying Machine. Tried on Staten
Island with Varying Results.
From the New York Sun.
In -and around this city there are, a
dozen men or more who have at one
time or another tried to fly. The ma-
jority of them ,are now walking lame,
or have never recovered 'the full use of
their arms, or have repaired ribs, or
some other disability consequent upon
their efforts :to invade the realm of*
air. This doesn't prevent, other en-
thusiastic amateurs from trying ;to
.play bird, and, as'surely as comes the
spring, so surely does some aspi-ring
genius bump himself violently against
mother earth through the medium of
wings that fail to fly. The latest exper-
,iments in this line have been going on
for a fortnight now under the fosc,'t'ins
care of the new journalism. ,
A sensational .Sunday newspaper,
desirous of doing something even more
startling ';than sending its intrepid
women reporters on. heart-shaking
trips in the terrifying horseless. car-
riage, or compelling, them to pass 'a
whole night in the dread labyrinths of
the Weather Bureau, sent abroad and
bought a so-called flying machine from
Herr Otto Lilienthal of Berlin, who
has been practising, with artificial
wings for some years, not without
considerable, success; although he has
never, attempted anything more ;than
air sailing. The huge wings ordered
from him arrived, after some delay; in
.the Custom House, the authorities
being much put'to it to determine on
what basis to' tax them.
When they had been taken out of the
Custom House all that ,was wanting
was somebody to put them on. None of
the representatives of the new journal-
ism was quite up to aerial trips, so the
newspapers hired two men in whom the
love of life burned low, to tackle the
job. .:* .
The party, adjourned to a hill. on
Staten Island with the machine, i and
a 'set of rules forwarded by Lilienthal,
the gist of which was that it is not
advisable to take a first flight in a hign
wind, and that the aeronaut who, has
ambition to live and. tell of, his exper-
iences should exercise, extreme care in
handling the apparatus. Herr ,Lilien-
thal ought to know,, for he has broken
himself in various places in th- iiniter-
ests of science., There, were other rules,
but they referred in intricate terms to
,the fnanagement,of the wings and.tail
in steering, and nobody under~t,,:,
them. h"
All being ready,. an athletic youth
who had been, selected as the first vie-
tim, girded on the pair of aerophanies
and poised at the topr, of a steep hill
while the dozen aerial, reporters of the
new journalism grouped below all 'gave
orders and advice at once. Finally the
"aerial editor called out:

ist were cut short"by the enthusiastic

er's, waist. All concerned attached
themselves to the other end of the r,0pe,

and with a dive started down to earth,

persuaded to make another try. After
a number of attempts, he finally got
himself launched, skimmed along the
,earth, his feet dragging, and finally,
with the exhortations of the aerial
editor and his staff to "curl Up those
damned long legs" ringing in his ears,
he succeeded in detaching himself from
terra firma for a distance' of about
forty feet, after which he trailed some
distance further before standing on his
head as a finish. Measurements of the
space from start to this undignified
finish were made, and the "flight" was
declared to be seventy-rive yards. It
was voted a grand success. The meet-
ing then adjourned after unanimously,
resolving that. "man can fly".
In comparison with this forty-foot-
in-the clear flight, it is interesting to
note that Herr Lilienthal succeeded
two years ago in soaring 300 yards from
a low hill against a stiff breeze. There
seems to be no danger of his record
being broken at present in this vicinity.


sessions continue only sixty days; yet
the people of the -State have no reason
to complain that they do not have laws
enough. Long annual sessions cumber
a statute book with scores of unneces-'
sary' and ill-advised measures, many
of which work so badly that they soon
need to be repealed. Thie peace of mind
of Massachusetts people would be
greatly promoted if they would have
only half as .many sessions of their
Legislature, and have those sessions
only' ,half-as long as at present.

According :to the Palmetto News, a
grower of vegetables in that vicinity
considers his tomato crop a failure,
although he hIas realized a profit of
$660 from three acres.

Senator Burrows of Michigan, in the
debate on the bond bill in the Senate,
warned his fellow-Senators against the
measure in the following vigorous lan-
guage: "Before I would vote for this
bill I had rather a thousand time that
' the country had gone' down in the aw-
ful storm of war. Rather that than to
have it remain a hissing and a by-
word among the nations of the earth.
I will never raise my hand to remove
the last prop that sustains the public
credit of the country." Heedless of
the warning, the Senate passed the bi1,
4 Populists, 11 Republicans; and 17
"silver Democrats" voting for it.

The Fort White Teiephtne says: "We
should like to ask why the Populists
were given a delegation at our Oounty
Democratic Convention at Lrfke City
on June 6. Was this a 15olitidal scheme?
Was not% the convention a Democratic
one ?"/The',proceedings of the Columbia
County Convention, as published in the
Lake city papers, did not disclose the
condition referred to by the Telephone.
The Citizen- has repeatedly urged
that the Legislature should authorize
,the publication of the laws of this
State, in order that the inhabitants.
might become familiar with their pro-
visions. The Melbourne Times quotes
* with satisfaction the following from an
exchange: "Every newspaper in Wis-
con-sin and. Minnesota over' one year
,,old receives $100 for publishing 'the
general laws passed at each Legis-
lature. If every .State in the Union
would adopt 'this plan the people
would have no excuse for ignorance
regarding the laws." If but one news-
paper in each county should, be author-
ized and paid toLpublish the laws, great
benefit would follow.
The Melbourne Times, referring to
the recent decision of (Circuit-Judge
Broome that the ].200-inhabitant. cat-
,tle law is unconstitutional, remarks
that* the decision is. binding only in the
Seventh Judicial, Circuit. The 'Times
says of t-he decision: "Its effet is
that any iuleorp.'ated town ,n tHie
counties of Osceola, Orange, Lake, Bre-
yard. and Dade can iimplOund all cattle
running'at large within their corpor-
ate limits."

A Provoking Accident That Stopped
the Big Wheel In London.
Prom the London Daily News.
The Great Wheel at West Kensington
has certainly come in for a stroke of
very bad luck. Only a few hours be-
fore VWhit Monday, when a considera-
ble proportion of Londoners and their
country cousins might reasonably have
been expected to travel sky high, the'
provoking thing has turned cantanker-
ous, and, though late last evening the
officials spoke confidently of getting it,
to work to-day, and, at all events, trot-
ting it round, even if they did not car-
ry passengers, the experience of the
sixty or seventy persons forced to
spend Thursday night in midair*-can,
hardly fail to exercise 'a deterrent ef-
fect on the majority- of those who
would have crowded its cars on Mon-
day. Of course if the big wheel re-
sumes its duty, as there can be no
doubt it will, the -little mishap will soon
be forgotten. It 'is astonishing 'how
short the public memory is for such
First, it may be well to state the
facts. Soon after 8:30 on Thursday
evening, while the grounds of the In-
dia and Ceylon. Exhibition at, Earl's
Court were-, crowded with pleasure-
seekers, a report spread that the Great
Wheel had stuck fast. Hundreds of
persons at once 'hurried to the open
space over which the giant structure
towers, and the nautically attired offi-
cials were' immediately besieged by
eager inquirers. In the illuminated
cars far above could be seen single
passengers or parties -anxiously pacing
the saloon, Ior standing gazing wist-
fully below. Those in the carriages
which were still left imprisoned who
could not be reached, was sixty or
more. While one crowd of onlookers
stood watching the base of the wheel,'
another, surrounded the engine house
close by. The officials, however, were
quite undisturbed by, the mishap, and
remained, at. their posts as if nothing
had occurred. Indeed, vwere it not for
the fact that the crowds 'had. gathered,
a casual observer would not have sus-
pected anything wrong.. As the even-
ing advanced and all effort to revolve
the wheel proved futile, it became an.
ever-increasing center of interest.' The
great' crowd listening to the band.' in
the Western Garden- soon moved
toward the Oeb-1. and much good-hu-
mored chaff was indulged in between
certain wags and a few unfortunate
passengers, who, although only a short,
distance frcpa the ground, were unable
to descend-fSoon after the stoppage oc-
curred it was found that one of the
two chains which connect the. wheel
with the engines had become in some
way jammed, and;that the engines
would not work. What had to- be done
was to release this -chain. As it goes-
underground to some extent, it was
necessary to open up the ground and
so get the chain -out of gear. Though
many hands were at work, this was
not accomplished until nearly 10 o'clock
yesterday morning. Then the. one
chain having been got out of gear, it,
was found that by' using the other
chain only, the wheel would work.
Thereupon a shout of satisfaction went
up on'all hands. The liberationof theft
prisoners was still, however, a mat-
ter of time, because it was necessary
that the chain not in use should be
carried round with the revolving wheel,
and this. having t6 1)e done by hand.
was a tedious hus;negs. and it was
no-In. or clearly so. before the last-cap-

Impossible t,9 reach the anxious voy-
agers, and even then it required noth-
ing short of most heroic action on the
part <,f two ,of the servants of the corn-
panyv, who volunteered to communicate
with the occupied carriages. Nearly, all
the men employed about the wheel
have been s-ailors, and they are fre-
quentlyv required to climlb about .the
huge s-tructure in a way that most
landsmen would find to be quite im-
possible. But their elitubings are. o~f
course, as a rule, confined to the l,:>wer
half .of the wheel, since, if anything ,is
required in ,he upper portion, it is only
necessary to give the wheel half a rev-
olution. Two men,, however, were ,re-
quired to reach the topmost' cars, and
plucky fellows volunteered in the gray
dawn of a wet May morning to climb
the periphery of !,the wheeI, bearing
lines with them. In this way they vis-
ited the twenty-eight cars found to/
have occupants, giving assurances that
every effort was being made for their
deliverance, and ',that it. was .only _a

question of a little time. They were also
able, by means of the lines they had
carried up with them,' to haul up pack-
,ets of refreshments, and -for some of
them who were suffering most from the
cold canvases and tabIe covers, and
whatever else could be got hold of,

had cushioned seats and were able to
wrap themselves in the curtains by
which the windows were embellished,
got along pretty comfortably, and as
refreshments loomed up out of the
void below things were pretty cheery
wittl some of them. The bare wooden
interiors of the cheaper cars, however,
had never been designed-for all-night
sittings. They are pretty much like
tram qars, but with seats differently
arranged and without any cushions at
all,- and the -complaints of bitter cold
were universal when the company once
more reached terra firma. One plucky
passenger, who dangled from the great
circumference about on a level with
the axis of the wheel, managed to
creep down in safety, no inconsiderable
feat, since it meant a descent of some-
where about 150 feet. The only really
lucky ones of the party were the oc-
cupants of the bottom eight cars at
the moment of stoppage. A few higher
up were also rescued by some little
backward movement of the wheel, and
for. a few who dared venture the two
voluntary climbers were able to rig up
the chair that had been used by the
wife of the contractor when she went
aloft to drive the last bolt of the enor-
mous structure. A few seated them-
selves in this, and were safely brought
to the ground. All this while, of "course,
a large number of workmen were mak-
ing desperate energies to put matters
right. The grounds had been cleared
of visitors/at' 11 o'clock, and all night
long the officers of the company were
hard at work. Last evening, however,
the Secretary felt unable to say pre-
cisely where the mischief lay. From
time to time. during the night they
felt confident that all was now well
and more than once the men were or-
dered to their post, on the assumption
that a start was about to be made,

An Iowa Man Engineer on "The
Rocket" of George Stephenson.
From the Chicago Record.,

For forty years Edward Entwistle
has had his home on a lot which he
purchased for himself upon his coming
to Des Moines.
Edward Entwistle was born in 1815
at Tilsey's Banks, Lancashire, Eng-.'
land. At the age of 11 he was appren-
ticed to the Duke of Bridgewater, who
had large machine, shops at Manches-
(ter, eleven miles from the lad's birth-
place and home. The first railroad for
general passenger and freight business
was completed in 1831, between 'Man-
chester and Liverpool, -a distance of
thirty-one miles. "The Rocket", the
first 'locomotive .,or passenger engine,
was built under the direction and ac-
cording to the plans of George Stephen-
son, in the work's where young Entwis-
tle was serving _as an apprentice. He
was to be an engineer, and he closely
wateh-,l the work.
W,\hen the road was built and the
en'~ne completed, Stephenson looked
about, for a man to run the engine.
The foreman of the *hops was consult-,
ed, and, after-a day or two,'* reported
thathe had n! man to recommend, but,
that if Stephenson would take the
young apprentice; Entwistle, the ,fore-
man wouId recommend the lad. The'
pDe's steward was applied to, -and
ga.ve written permission for Entwistle
to go with Stephenson. When he was
notified, after all these arrangements
had been made, it was the first intima-
tion Entwistle had that he was to be
placedin the service. He did not flinch
,from it, but rather enjoyed the op-
The formal opening of the road was
to take'place on Monday, and on Sun-
day'young Entwistle and Stephenson
took the Rocket out for a private trial
trip. They ran over about one-half the
track *of the road alone. All worked
,well, and they had no fear as to the
final'result. On the day of the formal
opening of the road immense crowds
gathered, not only at Manchester and
Liverpool, but all along the thirty-one
miles 'of track. ,The Duke of Welling-
ton', many other distinguished noble-
men, members of the Cabinet, and
st,,ckhol,:ders in the, new road were
present. ',
The passenger' coaches were built in
compartments, somewhat similar to the

The Republican Party is now forty
years old. It came into existence as a
sectional organization. Its first na-
tional cbnventibn, which met in 1856,
contained no delegates from States
south of the Potomac and Ohio Rivers,
with the exception of a few from Ken-
tucky. Neither in 1856 nor in 1860 did it,
secure an electoral vote from a single
State inl the 'South ... Since the brief
period beginning in 1$868 and ending in
1876 .it has again, been, without' the
slightest support trom the South in the
electoral college. ..
The, contests over, seats in the St.
iobuis convention bring into sharp re-
lief the sectional character that still
clings to this, political organization.
Controversies 'always arise, in "the
choice of delegates tq, a national con-
vention "of any party.,. Questions of
regularity are, quite certain to be raised
in more than, one district' and they
can be settled only by the,"decision of
the great assembly that'acts asla su-
preme court for the organiization. A
national convention without a contested
,seat was never heard of.
But such contests are ordinarily only
a few in comparison with the whole
-,number oft, delegates. A, peculiar feat-
ure of all, Republican. national conven-
tions'is the extraordinariIly large num-
ber., of these controversies,among ,the
d delegates from thle South. On no pre-
viou I s' Ic casion lhas itils peculiarity of
'Republican conventions been so marked
as it'" is this YVear. 'Scores" and

for any particular occasion, she has

Langtry on her last visit to America,
the jewels are returned the same night.
These deposit boxes are an especial

women of the smart set do not carry

Even at the smartest functions of.ultra
fashionable summer homes, diamonds
are conspicuous by their absence.
The best of the safety deposit boxes
are to be found at the house of large
jewelers. At one of the largest firms in t
America, seven watchmen go on every
night at 6 o'clock, and every nook. and

chaar-ge ,,of the_ Rocket. and for two
years made two round trips every day
between Liverpool and Manchester, one
in the forenoon, the other in the after-
noon. The work so wore on the youth
that he asked to be relieved, having
grown nervous and unwell. Stephen-
son at first said 'that Entwistle was
but an apprentice' and would ,have to
stay, any way; but Entwistle promptly
replied that he had not been appren-
ticed to a locomotive. Through the
kindness of Stephenson he was secured
a place as second engineer on one of
the coasting steamers of the Duke of
Bridgewater, On that vessel he com-
pleted the last three' of, his seven years'
apprenticeship, and remained one year
thereafter. "
Then, being 22 years of age, he de-
termined to come to the United States.
He landed in New York in 1837. .

tem of tickets has lately been adopted
in Russia for all distances over 300
versts, or 200 miles. In this way it
should cost under 5 to travel from
Moscow to the Pacific third class. The
present slow rate of travel is to, be in-
creased by ten miles, an hour on both
ordinary and express trains, raising the
latter to, forty miles an hour. Moscow,
which is not only sixty hours from
'London, will be thus nine and a half
days from Vladivostock.
The railway will revolutionize the
routes to China and Japan, and greatly
shorten the journey round the world
by Canada and the Pacific Ocean. Con-
nected with the main project are more
important political plans, believed to
be the subject of negotiations with the
Peking authorities. Such are the open-

paper currency now in circulation must
be maintained on a parity with gold.
and we .favor all measures designed
to maintain inviolably the obligations
of the United States and all our money,
Whether coin or paper, 'at the present
standard, the standard of the most en-
lightened nations of the earth."
Senator Teller offered a free-silver
resolution as a substitute, which was
voted down. This. will go to the full
committee to-morrow.
Mr. Teller will submit a minority re-
port in the, money platform, but not
on any other feature of the platform.
The Colorado Senator says that the
subcommittee was made up unfairly;
that the silver men .should have had
more than Pne man on the subcommit-
tee, as their representation entitled
,them to it. Mr. Teller will carry his
fight to, the full committee to-morrow,
but he has little hope of success, as he
does not believe that there are more
than ten o'r fifteen men on the full com-
mittee that will vote against the sub-
committee's resolution.
The majority o'f the subcommittee
state that they do not intend to imply
that the resolution will be adopted by
the committee, but give it out as the re-
sult of their own conclusions, which
,they would submit to-morrow. No
other portion o'f the platform would be
,.given out until presented to the full
committee. The subcommittee expects
to conclude, its work to-night or early
to-morrow morning, and will endeavor
'to, report to the full committee to-mor-
row at 10 o'clock. The committee has
agreed to embody in the platform a
resolution declaring for the protection
of the sugar industry. ,
The Cuban Plank.
At the request of Senator Foraker,
James Creelman prepared the follow-
ing, suggestion for use in constructing
the Cuban plank in the platform: "The
Government of Spain having lost con-
trol of Cuba, and being unable to pro-
tect the property or lives of resident
American citizens, or to comply with its
treaty obligations, we demand that the
,armed force of the United States shall
be promptly, interposed to restore peace
on the island. 'We hold it to be neces-
sary to our national peace and 'pros-
perity that the people Of Cuba shall
achieve 'political independence; and we
pledge to them our sympathy in their
noble struggle' against the corrupt and
barbarous Sparnish monarchy.". *
Mr. Creelman,'in c.1 nvrsat ion with
Senator Lodge, who is-'drafting that
part of the platform that relates to
-oreign affairs, said that it was a mis-
take to look at the question from the
Cuban standpoint, and the convention
ought to regard it from a purely Amer-
ican standpoint'. The recognition of
Cuban belligerency' might ibe qu estio n-
able,' but no one 'could .deny the right
of the United States 'to, intervene in
behalf of its own interests.
Sugar/Men Want Protection.
H. T. Oxnard, president of the Amer-
ican Beet Sugar Association, was given
a hearing, by the subcommittee on res-
olutiopns,, and, ,after a full discussion
tha following resolution was accepted
as a part of the platform, to be re-
ported to the full committee:
'We condemn the present Adminis-
tration for not keeping faith with the
sugar pr oducers of thi country: the
Republican Party favors such protec-
tion n a- will lead to the producti,:,n on
American soil cif all of the sugar that
the Americans use. and for which they

olution does not specifically K'efer to

Strong Probability That Morton Will
Be Placed There.
[By' Associated Press.1
St. Louis, Ma., June 16.-The senti-
ment regarding the Vice Presidential
nomination rapidly crystallized to-day
when it became definitely known that
Governor Morton of New York had ex-
pressed a willingness to accept, if the
nomination came to him with any sort
of unanimity. It seems almost reason-
ably'certain now that the ticket will be
McKinley and Morton, and that the
platform will be a conservative but un-
equivocal declaration in favor of the
gold standard as long as, the present
conditions shall prevail.
Despite the general feeling that the
ticket will be McKinley .and Morton,
Governor Morton's name will not go on

the delegation between the Platt and
Miller factions was intensified- to-day,
when a telegram from Morton to Platt
was received signifying his acceptance
of the Vice Presidential standard if he

should fail in the Presidential race.
"Levi P. Morton cannot go on the
ticket with William McKinley," said
Warner Miller, the leader of the anti-
Platt faction. "We will invoke the aid
of the McKinley managers to, assist
us, their friends in New York State,
against this injection of national poli-
tics into our State fight," and his fol-
lowers added their "yes" to the state-
Bitter Warfare in the Camp.
At 4 o'clock this afternoon the men in
the Miller camp heard from good au-
thority that Mr. Platt had received Mr.
Morton's consent to use his name for
the second place. At 6 o'clock they had
gathered their forces to consult over
the matter, and in a short time a bitter
warfare had projected. By 7 o'clock a
petition was finding its way through
the New York delegation reading: "In
the. interest of the Republican Party
we, delegates from the State of New
York to, the National Republica'n "Con-
vention, protest against dragging the
party struggles in our own State into
the national, canvass; and record our-
selves as unalteraby opposed to placing
any of our fellow-citizens upon the
ticket as the candidate for Vice Presi-
When the McKinley league from the
State of New York met, T. Campbell
of 'New /York presented the following
"The McKinley league, of the State of
New York, the custodian at St. Louis
of the signatures of the 147,000 Repub-
licans of the Empire State who desire
the nomination of William McKinley
for President, having heard that it is
the intention of the bosses to combine,
working in conjunction with ,certain
treacherous 'friends of McKinley, to
force Levi P. Morton on the Republic-
an national ticket as a candidate for
Vice President, do and hereby protest
against such conspiracy, for these rea-
sons : /
Reasons for the Protest.
"That its ,ur p.:,s, is to discredit, the
candidacy .of William McKinley, and
to weaken it before the ,people.
"2. That it is an insult, to the friends
of Major McKinley in New York State,
whose, indignation at the outrageous at-
tacks of Governor Morton's manager
on McKinley has compelled them to op-
pose the Presidentia ambition of Gov-
ernor Morton.
"3. That it constitutes a menace to
the Republicanism of the nation, in that
it drags into Presidential politics party
tyranny, which has disgusted the peo-
ple of, New York and of the United
"We, therefore, ask all true friends
of William McKinley in the national
convention to join, with us, his friends
in, the Empire State, in opposing the
nomination of Levi P. Morton for Vice
President, or any other candidate from
,the State of New York."
Every man in' the delegation was;
given a copy of'the resolutions to dis-
tribute among the different State dele-
gations, and the work ,was taken up
at once in a lively manner. Mr. Miller,
Cornelius N., Bliss, and S. V. R. Cruger

Comes Inquiries Regarding the Meth-
ods of Dr. Vincent.

It is admitted by all
solid thinking persons,
that truly. wonderful
strides of advancement
in medicine and surgery
"' Have been-made within
S there past few years.
Diseases are now being
Scored which not long
.i^Q~ila~al ago meant death to the
afflicted. The, discovery
of many very success-
ful 'treatments was of
course an Incentive for
substitution and imita-
.tion, & the result is
that to-day one may
see advertised hun-
+. dreds of catchpenny
nostrums, which, while they claim t9 do wonr
ders,' are often wcrse than worthless. Those
preparations which stand on their'merits, ,and?
have built for themselves solid foundations, oc-
cupy an enviable position before the public.
Such a ,preparation is, the Imperial Rupture
Cure, originated by Dr. Vincent. ,The success
of this treatment is just now attracting wide-
spread attention., Such'standard medical jour-
nals as the Brief; World; Summary; Herald and
others have commented very. favorably on the
good work done by the Imperial Cure, and the
news has, finally been heralded abroad. Among
the many orders lately received were one from?
Dr. Kludgian, Smyrna, Turkey; Dr. J. Har-
beck, Flensburg,, Germany;, several from Can-
ada and Mexico, and tw.o from Hawaii. This
treatment is now in the hands of over 200
physicians, and fully 150. contracts are still out
awaiting signature, So much for one of the
greatest discoveries of the age. If you are rup-
tured, here Is -your chance to get well. No
knife" used, No blood "drawn, No loss of, time'
from work, No Cure No Pay. Leaving the sub-
ject of rupture for .the time being, your atten-
tion is called 'to the fact that the treatment
used by, Dr. Vincent for Consumption is prov-i'
Ing truly wonderful in its effects. -In connec-
tion with tlls dread disease, do not forget .this
warning, "Do not procrastinate." Do not wait
until all hope is gone, but begin early, and
your charices for long life are very good.

Delaware's Factional Fight Decided
.by Seating Higgins.
[By Associated Press.] .
St.* Louis, Mo., June 16.--The commit-
tee on credentials' decision to ratify
the judgments of the national commit-
tee' on contested seats has probably
materially shortened, the duration of the
,convention. Contests from the States
of Delaware and Texas had been re-
ferred to the credentials committee by
the national committee, and these were
taken up at once. The factional con-
test between the Higgins and Addicks
forces, which has stirred the little State
of Delaware for several years, was de-
cided in favor of Higgins. Personali-
ties Were freely used and feeling ran
high all through the night session,
which was' devoted to the Delaware ,con-
test and the Texas "black-dnd-'tan"
and "lily-white" imbroglio, which is
still on the boards at a late hour.
The decision to ratify the national
committee's action was regarded as a
victory for the McKinley forces.

SI- Auctioneers.

New York, N. Y., June 16.-The World
editorially will say to-morrow: "In the
useless preamble to the resolution
agreed upon at the conference of gold-
"standard delegates and adopted by the
subcommittee last night, it is affirmed
.that Under .Republicah control since
1879 'every dollar has been as good as
gold'. Honest-money men discredit
'their cause by making false statements.
If -the St. Louis convention shall de-
o:clare for the best money, it will be an
act of wisdom and patriotism. But it
willhnot alter or atone for the fact that
:,our chaotic,.'distrusted, and dangerous
.lcurrenbcy system is of Republican
-creation.. Neither the dumbness of Mc-
Kinley nor the volubility of Lodge can
change history."
, i ,' New York Press.
New York, N. Y., June 16.-The press
to-morrow will say: ,"In the last year
,.f 'the War of the Rebellion a heavy
provost guard was necessary to keep
some'of thedrafted troops to the front.
,In this, we trust and believe, the last
,year of the currency war for this
.generation. the gold standard will
prove an excellent 'provost."
s Philadelphia Inquirer.
Philadelphia, Pa., June 16.-The In-
'quirer (Rep.) will say: "Gold wins at
"1St. Louis because the sober judgment
of 'the delegates told them that it is
the money of moneys. Were this not
so, who can doubt that the other civil,
,ized nations of tlie world would change
''their standard- whenever it proved
.profitable or expedient to do so."

What the City Fathers Accoxnplished
Yesterday Afternoon.
The City Council held its flfst meet-
ing in the new council room yester-
day afternoon. Under the inspiration
of the new surroundings the city fath-
ers went to work in good earnest, and
transacted more business in an hour
than they usually do in twice that
time. They seemed to appreciate the
grandeur of their surroundings, and
celebrated the advent into the new
quarters by demanding a speech from
W. B.- 'Clarkson, who ,was the only
member of the Board of Publicq Works
present at the meeting. After some
urging, Mr. Clarkson rose to his feet,
and said: "I am not much of a talker,
as you know, but prefer rather to do
than to talk. It is but six days less
than one year since the present Board
of ,Public Works took charge of its
present duties. It found a depleted
treasury, but it determined to push the
completion of this building as rapidly
as possible. It has been a question of
financiering, which has been ably con-
ducted by the chairman of the board,
who is, without doubt, a very able
financier. How the task has been ac-
complished may be partly explained
by the fart of the existence of half a
dozen banks in the city. I may say
that but one bank has refused its aid
in accomplishing this work, and the
board is particularly indebted to three
banks here- If the boars hag succeed-
ed in pleasing the council in arranging
its new quarters, and ,in furnishing
them, it will accept your thanks in si-
lence, and feel that it has accom-
plished its work well."
The council passed two ordinances,
which now await proper publication
and the signature of the Mayor to be-
'come laws. The. first one provided that
all sidewalks hereafter laid or repaired
on Julia Street, between Beaver and
Bay Streets, shall be made of hard
brick, stone, or artificial stone, to be
approved, by the City Engineer and
laid on grades to be furnished by the
same officer.
The other ordinance referred to the
payment of water rents that shall be
collected under the authority of the
Trustees of the Waterworks and Im-
provement Bonds. The trustees are
required on the first day of each
month to pay to; the City Treasurer all
moneys collected for use of the city
water, and the treasurer will be re-
quired to keep the money so received
in a separate fund, and to pay it out
only on warrants drawn by the chair-
man of the "Board of Trustees and coun-
tersigned by the City Comptroller.
The Police Commissioners sent a com-
munication recommending that the pay
of policemen D. W. Walker, Thomas E.
Wood, and 0. D. Williams be increased
from $50 to $60 per month, they having
served on the police force continuously
for more than six months. Policeman
Horace U. Bryan was also recom-
mended for an increase in salary from
$60 to $65 per month, he having been in
the regular service for more than two
years. ., '
A communication was read from ex-
Councilman E. G. Blair on the subject
of the recent order from the City Health
Officer prohibiting the sale of water-/
melons weighing less than eighteen
p',ounds after July 1. 1%1r. Blair thought
that the ,ider would work a hardship
on the melon-growers in this part ,.f the
State.-an,.i he wished that some discrim-
ination should be used in favor of ad-
mitting certain choice varieties to be
sold that might not come up to th'e,re-,
quired mark in weight.
The matter was discussed by. several
members of the council, and Mr. Blair,
who was present, was asked to explain
his request further.' As a' last resort,
DA. Romero, the/ City Health Officer,
was sent ,for. and explained that the
order had been issued about six weeks
in advance of. the usual time, on ac-
count of the unusually large crop this
year, and that it had been issued as a
warning to. shippers to send only their
best and largest fruit to this market.
The matter 'was referred to the Board
of Health, with power to take imme-
diate action.'
A dispute was occasioned that threat-
ened to assume some importance by the
complaint that P. Tischler had violated
the fire ordinance of the city in making
certain repairs on some buildings on
Bay and Forsyth Streets, near Davis
Street, for which he is the agent. He
had been stopped in the work by Chief
Haney and the matter was reported to
tlte council through C0ouncilman' Mar-
zyck. The affair was discussed with
some feelIfng, arnd it was finaldy settled
by instructing Chief Haney to watch
the further' progress of the work, and
to stop it if the repairs should further
fail of compliance with the city's regu-


E. W. Vail Appears as -Complainant
in the Municipal Court.
Arthur Pre'ssley was tried in the
Municipal Court yesterday morning on
a charge of fighting, preferred by E. W.
Vail, who, claimed that Pressley went to
his residence Monday night, and as-
saulted him, striking him in the face,
and breaking his nose. The trouble.
began over the charge made by Press-
ley that Vail had insulted his wife,
which the latter denied, and called
Pressley a'liar, ,when the latter struck
him. Vail announced that he would
take the case up to the Criminal Court,
and a light fine of $6 was imposed by
Justice Willard, who is acting irn place,
of Judge Dzialynski., ,
The other cases disposed'of were all
for petty offenses. One or two were
discharged, and light fines were im-
posed on the remainder.

United State'; Prisoners


Acquitted Yesterday.


Several Cases Nolle Pressed By
The Court Owing To Impossibility
of Conviction-J. G. Christopher's
Petition Referred to a Master.

Judge Locke, in the United States
Court, took up the criminal docket yes-
terday, and a number of prisoners who
had been indicted by the Grand Jury
were arraigned. Each was charged, un-
der section 3242 of the Revised Stat-
utes, with- carrying on the business of
a retail liquor dealer without having
paid the special Government tax there-
for. Those who were arraigned and
pleaded not guilty were George Harold,
Marshal Wellborne, John Stakeley, and
John Wesley, alias John Wess, who an-
swered to the latter name, and also
pleaded that he was innocent of the
charge. Sterling H. Hall varied the
monotony by admitting his guilt, and
was remanded for sentence.
George Harold was then called for
trial. He was defended by E. P. Ax-
tell. The offense was alleged to have
been committed in Eustis during April
and May. The defense was the one
common to most of the cases of this
nature, and consisted simply of a de-
nial of the charge by the defendant.
The jury found a verdict of not guilty,
and the prisoners was discharged.
'On motion of the Government's at-
torney a nolle pros. was ,entered in the
case against Marshall Wellborne, and
he was discharged from custody.. The
motion was made on the ground"-that
the evidence and the circumstances in
both cases were alike. '
Another Liquor Case.
At the afternoon session of the court
Joe Spicer was placed on trial for the
same offense of which Harold ha'd
been acquitted in the morning. This
was a Lake County case, and the de-
fendant was defended by E. P. Axtell,
who was again successful in clearing his
client. On the motion of District Attor-
ney Clark, and owing to its similarity to
the Spicer case, the case against George
Burney was nolle pressed. The cases
against Joseph Martin and Seven
Pearce were also nolle pressed. Ail
were for selling liquor.
The case against R. E. Postell was
continued- for the, term. The cases
against Hawkins Stockton and Pickett
were, asked to be continued for the
term, as District Attorney Clark said
that their cases could not be tried by
the present jury. The case in which
their alleged offenses were committed
was also tried before the same jury.
They tvill be arraigned this morning.

prosecutor will probably be granted ',

tion of John G. Christopher. The ma~t-
ter of the intervention was referred to

and, report the amounts due. The peti-
tion for intervention was filed with the
Court April 9, 1896, and was based on a
claim for $191, for the use of the steam-
er "Farmer", in October and November,
1892, for transferring freight.'
Adopted on the Death of Engineer
Gilbert F. Wiley. -
At a regular meeting of the Orange
:Belt Division, No. 309, of the Brother-
hood of Locomotive Engineers, held
June 7, a special committee was ap-
pointed to draft suitable resolutions
on, the death of Gilbert F. Wiley, a
member of the division, who met. his
death by accident on June 3. The reso-
lutions were the following:
"Resolved, That while, we humbly
submit to the will of God, we none the
less mourn our brother's untimely
death, stricken down, as he was, in the
prime of life and the vigor of man-

hood; and
"Resolved, That in the death of
Brother Wiley, the Orange Belt Divi-
sion has lost a true and worthy mem-
ber, the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key
West Railway a competent engineer,
and his wife and child a fond and lov-
ing husband and/father, and the City
of Sanford a worthy citizen; and :,
"Resolved, That we extend to his be-
reaved ones our deep and heartfelt
sympathy, and. we commend them to
the care of Him 'who doeth all things
well' and we pray that He, in his in-
finite love and mercy may help them to
bear up under the great affliction
which has so, suddenly saddened their
hearts and darkened their home; and
"Resolved, That as a just tribute
to the memory of our late brother, we
drape our charter with the insignia of
mourning for thirty days, that these
resolutions be spread on our minutes,
that a copy of them be sent.to the daily
papers for publication, and that a copy
of them be sent to the family of our
late brother, with teh seal of the divi-

Action of The ,Bond Trustees




Ordinance and Resolutions Sent to
the City Council To Authorize
the Expenditure of Sufficient
Money To Make the Changes.

The convention at Ocala. did not pre-
vent the Bond Trustees from holding
their regular meeting yesterday morn-
ing, as five of them were gathered after
more than half an hour's work, and
the meeting was called to order. The
board had several guests, who came to
the meeting with certain objects to
gain. Among these guests were J. M.
Barrs, the legal advisor of the board,
who had just returned from the field of
battle in Marion County, and seemed
to be jubilant over what he had learned
during his visit there. The others were
Councilmen Marzyck and Bethel, and
their errand was to secure from the
board the extension of the fire alarm
system to the outskirts of the city, so
that it would coincide with the com-
pleted extension of the water pipes.
Councilman Bethel said that the wa-
ter pipes Had been laid in LaVilla to
.the intersection of Johnson and Union
Streets, and he suggested the location
of alarm boxes at the corner of Beaver
Street and the Kings Road, or at
Beaver and Davis Streets, or at both
places. Mr. Marzyck remarked that no
boxes had as yet been located west of
the Terminal Station, and he thought
that the board should place boxes at
certain corners on West Adams or
Ashley Streets. Mr. Marzyck then
passed a box of fine cigars round to
the trustees, and left with his brother
The, .matter on which they had
touched was in line with the action of
the meeting, for it was devoted almost
I entirely to the consideration of the
needs of the Fire Department. The re-
port of the special committee on this
important subject, which consisted of
Trustees Tysen, Cockrell, and Camp-
bell, had prepared its report, and it
was submitted to the meeting as fol-
Report of the Committee.
"The committee'on 'fire department
would respectfully report that, in ac-
cordance with your directions, it has
visited and inspected the building now
occupied by the. Bridge Street station
of the department, and'in its opinion
this should be condemned on sanitary
grounds- as unfit for. the dormitory of
the men, and also as being entirely un-
suitable for the wants of the station.
There is no hose rack, and no room to
build one, .and the hose, after being
*used, has to be taken to, the Central
Station to be, dried. This is very' in-
lconvenienat, and an element of danger
while the men are away from the sta-
"The/ committee recommends that a
contract be made with J. S. Pbwell,
who has a lot on Bridge Street, a few
doors north of the present station, to
erect a- building suitable for the wants
'i of the 'department at" that place. He
will make a contract on a five or ten
t ^ea, Jasis to put III.su-i1Ch a building.

The question of a location for the sta-
twon..othter than on Bridge Street was
Sdisus'sed aft some length. Mr. Foster
though ht that a site could be'secured on
soffie other -street: than Bridge that,
would' beomuch cheaper and quite as
convenient. The question of the city
owning its own stations, including the
buildings and the' lots on which they
stood, was considered and discussed,
and .accordingly the proposition of Mr.
Powell was held in abeyance till the
committee should have time to inVestf-
gate the possibility of purchasing other
sites than the present ones for the Main
i Street and' Bridge Street stations, and
the matter was accordingly recommit-
te d '
What It Will Cost;
The committee also submitted certain
figures that it had: compiled for the im-
plrovement of the entire department.
These figures'included the cost o$ new
,fire stations in Riverside and in East
Jacksonville. They also included the
extension of the fire alarm system to
,those parts of the city where the wires
do not now exist. The city owns the
site. in Riverside where the new, station
is, to be placed, on Riverside Avenue,
near Forest Street. The estimates that
:were (submitted to the board were the
fol!0wing: For the equipment of the
Riverside station, $2,500; for the equip-
..merit of the East Jacksonville station,
$2,500; fire alarm extension and im-
provement,, $4,000; hook and ladder
equipment for the the Central Station,
, $1,550; Riverside station building, $1,000;
S lot and new building for the Central
Station, T$12,700; total, $24,250.
The, legal member of the board de-
clared that a special ordinance would
',be necessary to authorize an4, provide
for the expenditure of the money to be

used in, these improvements, ana ac-
cordingly a resolution was prepared to
accompany a suitable bill fo r an ordi-
nance to the City Council.
The other business transacted by, the
board yesterday was to authorize the
purchse by the Chief of the Fire De-
partment of two ball nozzles for $76.
The matter of the purchase of a new
horse for the department was' left to
the chairman of the board, and the
question of procuring a new safe .for
the use of the board was settled by
empowering the secretary to advertise
/for one, delivered in the office of the
board.' /

ing Judge R. B. Archibald moved that

Napoleon's Favorite Carbineers.
When Metz surrendered, twenty-five
years ago, the famous carbineers of the
Imperial Guard, who formed part of
the garrison, were disbanded. The sur-
viving officers of the corps held an in-
teresting anniversary dinner in Paris.
The regiment "Royal Carabiniers" was
formed in 1693 of picked companies
.from the other cavalry regiments. It
fought in all the battles of the Ancien
Regime from Fleurus :to Fontenoy and
Frederic the Great's wars. Their motto
was first "Nee pluribus impar", and
:afterward, "Toujours au chemin de
l'1honneur". The uniform in which they
are frequently depicted 4n Messonier's
pictures, a gilt cuirass with silversun-
burst and the red plume in the helmet,
was given to them by Napoleon, with
whonm the carbineers were favorites.
At NVaterl,_o. they made a'famou.z
charge under Kellermann's lead.

A Bright Idea. I

A good idea, so simple that it is a
wonder that the thousands who take
out patents did, not think of it earlier,
has been ev61,ved by a St. Louis man.
Xt is to transfer the mucilage on the
envelope from the flap to the body of
the envelope where the flay laps. Then,
in sealing an envelope, one can mois-
ten with the tongue the comparatively
clean and tasteless paper, and need no
longer taste the unwholesome, ill-tast-
ing, and perhaps unclean mucilage.

Bland for the Silver Dollar.
Ex-Congressnman Bland never wears
a collar, except on Sunday, puts on
knee-high boots and trousers three
-inches ,to. short. He chews a quarter
of a pQund of tobacco a day, lives on
a 160-acre farm in Missouri, and is
proud of the fact. He says he is poor
but honest.

An Amusing Fight Over the Q.ues-
tion of Proxies.
[Special to the Citizen.]
Tampa, June 16.-The delegates to the
State convention at Ocala were most
actively engaged yesterday making
preparations to leave their business for
a few days. Some became very much
exercised in the work of obtaining
proxies, and some amusing gyrations
resulted. The great object 'for obtain-
ing the proxies appeared to be the con-
test over the Treasurership, and it was
in this that C. B. Collins,, the incum-
bent, showed his strength by the man-
ner in which his friends, who were on
the delegation stood' by him' and
worked in his behalf.
Ever since Saturday much wire pull-
ing has been done in Ybor City to se-
cure the proxies of two delegates. The
Baya contingent worked hard, and
after securing the proxies they were so
elated that they ventilated their grati-
fication. The friends of Mr. Collins,
Who had been unaware of any such
move, took up the lines of the fight
early yesterday morning, and went to
Ybor City in. full force. The delegates
who had given proxies were diligently
worked uponf and about 4:30 the friends
of Mr. Collins boarded a, street car to
return down town. It was their turn
to be elated, for they stated that they
had succeeded in having the proxies
given to the Baya crowd revoked, and
had them in their vest pockets.
No sooner had they returned down
town than the Bayaites learned of their
action and success, and, although the
time for departure from the city was
within an hour, one of them went to
Ybor City post haste again to interview
the two delegates, who had traded to
both sides. The result of.this move by
the Baya people is ur known, but the
interview with one bf the delegates was
quite animated, and was witnessed by
several, who were awgre of the condi-
tions.. At the moment ., of departure
of the delegates !it was conceded that
the Collins' crowd was in the majority,
and as the delegates would vote as a
unit Mr. Collins was all right.
New Election in Gainesville.
[Special to the Citfzen.]
Gainesville, June 16.-It is generally
understood that a mass meeting will
be held 'in .this city on Saturday, June
27, to pass resolutions. asking the new
executive committee to call a new elec-
tion for" the' entire county, to make
Democratic nominations. As there was
no 'fraud or irregularity in the recent
primary, with the exception of Gaines-
ville and Yular, the successful canli-
dates will protest against. this. All
are Willing to have a new' election in
the Gainesville precinct, but do not
want'to g further. It Is not probable
that the election will be called. ,

[Special to the Cftllen:]
Ocala, June 16.-The credentials com-,
S inittee has found itself With much nore
work on hand than it was thought
Should be the", case when )it was ap-
pointed at tThe-,roon session of the con-
vention. The committee./ with Mr.
SArchibald of Brevard as chairman and
%" Mr. Anderson of Le%, as secretary,
was il continuous session from 3 o'clock
until -7:30, *hen it took a recess of an
hour for supper.
The afternoon session was consumed
in disclosing of the Lafayette County
contest. This resulted in the seating
of what is knrswn as the Chaires dele-
gation .in preference to the Day dele-
gates. The Executive Committee of
Lafayette County called primaries, the
apportionment being based on the reg-
istered vote in' the county and not
upon the Democratic vote, as was pro-
vided in the call of the State Demo-
cratic Executive Committee. Both
factions in the county participated in
'_' the..primaries. Upon the completion of

held a convention of their own, elect-
S ing.fdelegates to the State convention.
Mr. Chaires presented" his side of the
ease to the committee, and Mr. Day ap-
peared in the interest ot' himself and
associate delegates.
A motion was made to seat the
Chaires delegation, and an amendment
T: wasF offered that the Day delegation be
sea t ed. A substittrte was then pro-
posed. that both delegations be seated
with a, half vote each. ,-' ? ,.
On the last-named proposition' the
,, vote was 17 for and7 against. 'The
,' amendment as thus amended, that the
)ay delegation be seated, was then
put an.l l bst by a vote of' 7" for and 34.
against. 3 voting blank. The original
nption..that" the Chaires delegation be
'- seted. was' then passed without oppo-
s i t io n
The credentials committee,,met again
, after supRer, and t,-,ok up the IVolisia,
, .. matter, in which 'Jeemfis" Alexander
('. h brought up a contesting delegation.
/ This was deemed to be- of such little
imp-rtance that the Stdte comm ittee
did not even diznify'it: With the' name
of a ec-ptest. Judge Stewart present-
ed the claims of his delegation before
; he committee, and Mr. Fitts those of
hie Alexander delegates.. The vote was
Unanimous for seating the Stewart
delegation. In this case the regular
convention was held at the appointed
time, and delegates were elected repre-
,. sting the Stewart faction. The Alex-
n" ader faction did, not participate ifithe
convention, but held one elsewhere.
The committee will present its report
to the convention at 9 o'clock to-mor-
row morningg.
