Columbus, June 23. The Eepnblican
State Convention for the nomination of a
fall State ticket will convene in this city
Tuesday and continue in session two days.
The, indications are that the convention will
be the largest in point of numbers and in
teresfrof any which has been held since the
war. The result is conjecture and will like
ly be an experiment-in Ohio politice.
Some of the candidates had arrived last
night and to-day large delegations are com
ing from all parts or-the State in the in
terest of friends and favorites for the head of
the ticket The results of the primaries' in
the large cities of "the State indicate that
Governor Foraker will be renominated fora
third term. II is only within the, past two
or three days that his opponents in the race
were satisfied that he wonld allow his name
to go before the convention or that he would
accept the nomination should it be tendered
All of them claim'to have consulted with
the Governorjieforejhey became candidates,
end received from him assurances that he ,
would not accept under any circumstances.
The result is that they are now very much
surprised at his position, and much ill-fecl-.
ing has been aroused.
An Explanation Is Accessary.
The short visit of the Governor to New
York last week and the little interview to
which he was subjected had the effect of
putting him on the defensive, and on his
return he was compelled to say whether he
would accept the nomination. He, how
ever, chose to deny the New York inter
view and say that he had never announced
to any one that he would not accept the
nomination shonld it be tendered him.
For the past three days, when it became
known that Foraker was after the nomina
tion sure, the opposition began to bestir
themselves and quite a sentiment has been
worked np over the third term idea. It is
noT7 Foraker against the field, and to the
unprejudiced there is little doubt as to the
There are so many interests to serve that
it is difficult to make any estimate, as there
are some of the leaders who are evidently
favoring the renomination of the Governor
in the hope of securing his defeat at the
polls, while there are others who hope to
profit by his nomination in a political way.
Considerable care has been taken to make
the fact- known that the Governor, if nomi
nated, will not be a candidate for the Sen
ate to succeed Senator Payne.
One of the Many Plans.
This, it is thought, will bring to him the
support of Foster, Butterworth and others,
who are interested in having as few candi
dates in the field as possible. The enemies
of the Governor, and those who are doing
all they can to compass his defeat, insist
that the scheme is a large one, and that the
Governor desires to be Governor for another
term in the hope of being in active politics
and in charge of the State machinery in
1892, when the next candidate for President
is to be nominated.
This is on the theory that Harrison will
be a one-termer. The private secretary of
the Governor spent more than a week in
'Washington and has just returned. It was
asserted that he was there for the purpose of
seems what could be done in behalf of the
Governor in the way of patronage in the
State in case he should accept the nomina
tion for Governor.
As to what success was made has not been
made known, but it is now thought that the
Washington end of the line will take but
little interest in the election when it is
learned the Governor has designs on 1892.
This and the unprecedented question of a
third term are among the most important
objections which are nrged against the nom
ination. Foraker Terr Hard to Beat.
On the other hand, the friends of the Gov
ernor insist that he is the only man who can
be elected against the Democracy this year.
They-base this claim upon the point that
he lias the patronage, has charge of the
working machinery, and that he can make
a personal campaign and nod his plume in
the front ranks from beginning to close.
The friends of the Governor have succeed
ed in escaping the worry of"a lone campaign
by insisting that he was not a candidate and
also claiming that he wished to return to his
law practice in Cincinnati, as he conld not
afford to be the nominee again if he were
sure of an election. They insist now with
equal force that the Governor cannot afford
to he a Senator for the reason that his fami
ly is large, and, considering the difference
in the cost of living and educating his fam-1
ily, that the office of Governor is worth at
least as much more than the position of
His.friends now claim that be is a man of
more than average ability, a lawyer and
statesman, and that he shall not retire to
his practice at the present time, hot most
remain in public life. His admirers who
are already on the ground for the conven
tion insist that the. country no longer has a
great lawyer statesman like Conkling, no
Boldier statesman like Logan, ner have the
old "Whigs any longer an ideal war states
man like Morton, of Indiana, but
Ohio Has One Slam
who possesses all these elements and the
staying qualities of Grant, and that he
should not be allowed to retire to private
life at this time. There is some disappoint
ment on the part of the men who have the
Governor's canvass in charge, that now,
when it is known that he will accept, why
there is not more of a general rush in that
" One of the Governor's most stanch sup
porters stated this evening that it would be
the neat and handsome thing for the other
candidates to now withdraw and make the
nomination of Foraker by acclamation and
unanimous. The other candidates, how
ever, are more determined in their efforts
General Kennedy probably stands next to
Foraker in the strength which he will be
able to show in the convention on the first
ballot, but it is believed that Kennedy has
vory little reserve strength, and will on this
account have little prospect unless he shonld
reach the point on the first ballot.
Ex-Speaker Lampson, of Ashtabula,
'stands about third in the race, and he
has a wonderful reserve force among the
delegates who wish to pay the usual com
pliment of voting for a local candidate.
A Promising Bark Horse.
Should the balloting proceed farther than
second or third Lampson will stand a good
showing for first place before 'thexonven
tion. The better judges, however, believe
that foraker will be nominated for first
place at least by the timethe second ballot
is concluded, and that Lampson will, secure
second place on the ticket Indeed, there
are many who concede that everything
points that way. ' The entire ticket outside
of Governor and Lieutenant Governor will
With the convention disposed of, there
seems no doubt that Hon. A. L. Conger,
member of the National Committee from
Ohio, will be the Chairman of the State
Committee. Chairman Cappeller, who has
served through three campaigns, refuses to
accept for another term.
BRICE A CANDIDATE.

Iatnre Is a Donbtfnl
Columbus, June 23. The election of
Colonel Calvin S. Brice as Chairman: of the
National Democratic Committee has prac
tically made him the leader of the Demo
cracy of this State, and should they carry
the Legislature he will undoubtedly be chosen
United States Senator, if Mr. Payne should
not be a candidate. This is a rather
strange assertion when it comes to
be considered that 12 months ago
Brice was almost entirely unknown as even
a voter in this State. He was raised about
Lima, the oil producing section of Ohio,
where he made a fortune in oil and railroad
speculations and was looked upon only as a
money-getter and money-saver. ForEeveral
years almost all his time has been spent in
New York, his trips to his native home
being few and Jar between. But he has
able and faithful lieutenants there tf ho ap
pear to have been carefully watching his
Last spring he expressed a. desire to go as
delegate to the National Convention. He
was immediately chosen and was the leader
of the delegation in the body which renomi
nated Mr. Cleveland. He at once jumped
into the practical mastery of the Demo
cratic canvass. Then it -was given out that
this was only a stepping stone to political
advancement in his native Stata. His ele
vation to the chairmanship helps that de
sire along, and if the Democrats secure the
Legislature he will undoubtedly succeed
Mr. Pavne in the Senate, unless that states
man should revise his present judgment
He has expressed a desire to retire forever
from public office and is regarded as entirely
sincere in that declaration.
The Power Behind the Throne.
But his son Oliver, who will not be home
from Europe nntil the 29th of this month,
jb me real aruiier ui mis aecision. lr.
Payne is now about 80 years of age, and
although still in possession of his strong
mental and physical faculties, he regards
his public career as ended and desires to re
tire. The vounger members of the Democ
racy, who are just now managing the party,
have the feeling that a younger man should
be chosen as their representative in the
United States Senate. It is this element
that is looking toward Mr. Brice, who has
declared that he will not be a candidate
againt Mr. Payne. Nevertheless his is the
only name mentioned, and members of the
Legislature are being nominated in his in
terest The Democratic State tirkethangs its for
tune on the fight for the Legislature. iTet
it may be beaten and the Democrats secure
the Legislature, because the controversies
in the Republican ranks that are most ir
reconcilable are over members of the Legis
lature. At no time, however, since the war
have the Democrats been more confident of
carrying Ohio than this year. There are so
many things which combine to favor their
cause that their claim has a foundation of
good argument at least
Uhio is really a reliable Eepnblican
State. Yet, not lor 24 years have
the Bepublicans had two United States Sen
ators in Congress at the same time. Every
six years there appears to have been a
cyclone'of discontent or intrigues which
gave the Legislature to the Democrats. It
looks to an outside observer as though this
year would be no exception to the rule
which has prevailed for a quarter of a cen
tury. One of the Strange Features.
Strange as it may seem, it is not so diffi
cult for the Democrats to defeat the Bepub
licans in this State for the control of the
Legislature. Hamilton countv. in whiMi
Cincinnati is situated, is the real key to the'
situation, uutot tbe lib members of the
Legislature it has 14, and whichever party
secures them is almost certain to carry the
Legislature. The vote in this county is so
close and is affected by so many local
influences that both parties have to be
extremely careful as to the char
acter of their nomination and earnest in the
labor which they perform for their election.
It is just possible for the Bepublicans to lose
Hamilton county and then control the Legis
lature on joint ballot, but to do that they
must carry every close and doubtful district
in the Stete, which is next to impossible for
them to do, even in -an ordinary campaign,
much less in such a contest as they are now
When John Sherman was last a candidate
to re-election the Sepnblicans lost Hamil
ton county, and had there not been a Demo
cratic revolt against John R. McLean, who
was a candidate for the United States Sen
ate. Mr. Sherman would not now be in the
Senate. Columbus, which is the center of
Franklin county, is usually a very reliable I
Democratic community, but Mr. McLean's
correspondent. Allen O'Mvers. was a candi
date for the Legislature- with two other of-
Mr. McLean's mends. O'Myers ana one
other candidate were defeated and two Be
publicans elected in a strong Democratic
district - If Allen O'Myers had not been a
candidate for the '"Legislature in Mr. Mc
Lean's interests John Sherman would not
now be in the United States Senate and
Mr. McLean would.
A Terr Bonbtful Point.
This result illustrates how easy it is far
the Bepublicans to be beaten this year.
Governor Foraker, whose appointees prac
tically control the politics of Hamilton
county, will nominate candidates for the
Legislature friendly to his interests. It is
the universal opinion here' that they will be
knifed and that the Democratic candidates
will be elected. Then the Republicans will
be obliged to carry every doubtful district
outside of Cincinnati to get a majority of
one on joint ballot If this can be done this
year it will be a result that has not been
accomplished for the last quarter ot a cen
tury. It it could not be accomplished when
John Sherman was a candidate for 'the
Senate with a united party at his back, no
animosities and no rival interests at stake,
how much less can it be done in such a bitter
fight as is bound to take place between
Governor Foraker and Ex-Governor Foster.
How mnch this situation of affairs will
affect the contest for Governor remains to be
seen. Very many Democrats believe that
it will elect their candidate as well as give
them the Legislature, but if they secure the
Legislature it is about all that tbey.can
really count npon with any degree of
Naturally the Democrats are jubilant
over the present outlook. They are united
and enthusiastic. There are no differences
of opinion upon the Senatorship and every
energy is to be bent toward the nomination
of Democratic candidates for the Legisla
ture who can be elected.
McLean Not In tho Race.
There was a rumor that Mr. John B. Mc
Lean still had ambitions for the United
States Senate, bat "his closest friends say
that he will never again make a contest for
ajiublic office. He spends most of his time
in Washington, where he has a magnificent
residence and entertains handsomely. He
rarely ever comes to Ohio, and his paper is
being run by his employes. It is so success
ful that it needs little or none of his atten
tion, and being possessed of great wealth, it
is said that Mr. McLean prefers to enjoy it
than to mingle in any doubtful contests
over public office. Be that as it may, you
never near his name mentioned in connec
tion with the Senatorial contest
Almost every Democrat anticipates the
election of Colonel Brice in case the Demo
crats secure the Legislature. Naturally
there is some disappointment over the sud
den elevation of this man, who, 12 months
ago, was practically a stranger to the politics
of this State. But it is among the older
class of Democrats, who have ambitions
themselves that, cannot be gratified and
they dislike to see a new man spring into a
place in a day for which they have labored
so many years.
Taking this canvass, which is just now
at fever heat in its preliminary maneuvers,
in all its phases, it is one of the most inter
esting and singular that has tdkn place for
years in this queer State, where politics, and
office holding seem the regular' occupation
of a large number of its neop

Philadelphia, Jane 23. Unless some
thing unexpected and unforeseen occur i,
Mrs. Sarah Jane Whiteling will Tuesday
pay with her life for the commission of a se
ries of fiendish and unnatural crimes.
When Mrs, Whiteling gloated over the"
agonies of her dying children and husband
she did not anticipate a day of vengeance,
but with death staring her in the face, the
unwomanly demeanor has disappeared and
been superseded by a-feeling of deepest con
trition and remorse.
The murderess will be the first woman
hanged in this city, although six have met
their death on the scaffold in the State.
During the last reprieve, which will expire
Tuesday, several efforts have been made by
her counsel, George W. Amende, Henry
D. Paxson and others, to have her sentence
commuted to imprisonment for life on the
ground of insanity, and. .failing in this, en
deavors were made to secure a further re
spite. In answer to this last appeal the
Governor on Saturday notified Lawyer
Aruendel that he would not interfere with
NO PABDON EXPECTED.
This thoroughly clinches the case, and no
pardon can be expected. Governor Beaver's
reasons for refusing to grant a further re
spite were concisely put in the concluding
part of his letter to the attorney. He wrote
"Ibave given my careful consideration to
the case and am unable to see that the ends
of justice could be in any way promoted by

allegations are made, a jury and the board

and I can see no reason why the sentence of
the law should not and ought not to be car

ing that she had -sent the souls of her vic

gram to the effect that he would start at

the crime-stained woman during the last
moments of her life. At the connty jail
to-day it was said that Mrs. Whiteling had
become reconciled to her fate and was await

was entirely nnassumed.

Scott Methodist Episcopal Church, who has
been the spiritual adviser of the condemned,
and Bev. John W. Savers wilj visit her to
morrow in the cell and continue their labors
to prepare her for the end. Bev. Mr. Jones
has spent considerable time with his charge,
and had many opportunities to judge of her
mental capacity. j
"She seems to be well," said he, "and in
a satisfactory frame of mind. iShe said that
she expected to go forth to the execution as
happy as though she were
GOINO TO BE PErE,
using those very words. She was in this
same serene and contented frame of mind
when her respite was granted, and when
told of the postponement of her execution
she sank at once into a stolid and dejected
condition. She has since recovered her for
mer cheerful spirits and once more is pre
pared for death. She says she is all right
spiritually; that her sins have all been for
given and that she wants to Idie, She talks
of meeting her children in heaven just as I
would. I think Mrs. Whiteling is entirely
sane. Hers is a low order of mind, and her
mental powers, which were small at the
start, have neverhad much added to them."
No arrangements have been made for the
approaching hanging, it being customary
not to erect the scaffold nntil the afternoon
before the day set by the Governor. Accord
ing to this the engine of death will not be
placed into position until to-morrow after
noon. It is not known what disposition the
murderess will make of her body, but it is
expected she will bequeath it to Dr. Alice

A Pleasure Boat Capsized and Its Occupants
.Drowned In the Schuylkill River A
Yoang Man's Foolkardlaesa Rc-
nlu In the Loss of Four Lives.
(SrECIAL TELEGRAM TO TOR. DISPATCH.!
Philadelphia, June 23. Because of
an unheeded warning a rowboat containing
fonr persons, two of them young women,
was swept over the breast of Fair-mount
dam this afternoon and all of its occupants
drowned. The pleasure craft started from
the public boathouse, on the east bank of
the Schuylkill river, for a trip np the
stream. One of the young men thought it
would be, good sport to go as close to the
breastworks of the dam as possible, and
laughi ng at the expressed fears, and disre
garding the wishes of his companions, he
had his own way. Just before the boat took
its fatal plunge several citizens standing on
the water works wharf-warned the heedless
young man to turn back, -and at about the
same time John McCormlck, an attache ot
the boathouse, started across to make him
desist in his folly, but before reaching them
the skiff was carried over by the current.
There was but a few inches of water going
over the dam, except in one place, where a
ten-foot wide flash board was broken and al
lowed the water to pour over to the depth of
one and one-half feet Toward this fatal
spot the boat was headed, and canght in the
current before it conld be turned about
Over it plunged into the seething maelstrom
below. It came up all right, but the de
moralized occupants, rushing to the stern,
swamped and overturned it. When it went
over McCormick, without stopping to divest
himself of either clothing or shoes, jumped
overboard to effect a rescue. His efforts were
futile; for, strange to jay. not one of the
victims appeared above water. After strug
gling awhile he gave up the hunt and
turned the craft, which was shattered and
strained by beating against the treacherous
rocks, to a point ot safety.
"Private individuals reinforced the harbor
police, who were early on the ground grap
pling for the bodies. Thousands of people
viewed their work, which continued long
after nightfall, from the water works flats,
and when the first body, that of a young
woman, was caught, they cheered the men
to the echo. Before this the crowd seemed
unawed by the presence of death and
jostled, joked and scrambled for a good
point of view, requiring the mightiest ef
forts of a squad ot police under Lieutenant
Francis to keep them in subjection. All
four of the victims were of respectable
parentage and left home light-hearted and
gay for a stroll in the park.
TURNERS IN FORCE.
They Throng All Over Cincinnati and Fill
the Air With Joylnl Song Tho Ath

of Banquets Tendered.
Cincinnati, Jane 23. The attendance
at the Turner's athletic exercises at the
compus to-day was immense. There must
have been 12,000 spectators present The
exercises continued all day from early morn
ing until night, half a dozen sections per
forming simultaneously. The exercises
closed with a mass performance, in which
1,200 Turners in uniform, assisted by an
orchestra, and a mennerchor of 200 voices
This was a staff exercise executed to the
music of an orchestra. After it was over
this body of men closed in mass gang a song
composed for the occasion in which they
were assisted by the mrcnerchor. The effect
of 1,400 male voices united in song in the
open air was inspiring to. the great audience,
whose applause wheni it was over was
deafening. It was an experience that few

Johnstown, June 23. Bev. Dr. Beale
and three men started to sing a hymn this
morning, at the corner of Main and Adams
streets. The sound ol their voices attracted
some people, but others stood off at a dis
tance, The scene was impressive in the
extreme, and as the singingcontinued, every
body in the immediate vicinity felt their
hearts melting, and involuntarily gathered
around the preacher. When the white
haired minister mounted a store box to
begin bis short talk to the people, he looked
on a good sized company of men and women.
Here was a picture for an artist. Driven
from their churches by the flood, these
faithful followers rallied around a store box
for an altar on a street corner and worshiped
their Maker. Open air religious services
were held in other parts of the town.

In the coarse of his remarks Dr. Beale
"spoke of the Christian man as the highest

were touched, and they wept freely as their

but the whole world. Humanity has been
deeply stirred, and cablegrams are pouring

Boston, June 23. Some weeks ago a

to go to Sooth Carolina and investigate the
present status of political parties there.
Mr. Dudley made the investigation and has
submitted his report in writing. Mr. Dud
ley believes that the opposition of the
Democrats to the independent movement
comes from a fear of its influence, for no
one has a word to sav against the character
of the men leading it. In closing he says:
I found so manywhito men sympathizing
with the principles nf the Republican party

that I believe the independent party can

Stillwatee, Minn., June 23. It
seems practically certain that Bob lonnger,
the Missouri outlaw serving a life term here
for the murder of a bank officer in North
field in 1876, will be pardoned within the
next fonr or five days. The simultaneous
arrival here of a member of the Missouri
Legislature and two other distinguished
Missourians with the sisters and aunt of
the three Younger boys, means that the
matter of a pardon will be pushed at once.
Several hundred of the best people of Still
water, including lawyers.-doctors and other
professional men, have signed the petition
for his release on the ground that he cannot
live long. He is only 34 years old, and has
served 13 years of a life sentence.
The records show that during Younger's
confinement in the prison 20 life men sen
tenced for murder have been pardoned; that
the average term served by the 20 was seven
years, and in no case was it pleaded that
the convict did not personally do the kill

A WEALTHS' FATHER.
The father left Illinois and settled in
Massachusetts, where he engaged in busi
ness, and in the course of a few years ha
had accumulated a considerable amount of
property. His business associate was a gen

the story of his past life. He related to him
his unhappy marriage, the separation be
tween him and his wife, and of his havinjr
an only daughter, who had remained with,
About a year ago he made his will, in
which he left his entire estate to his daugh
ter, if she could be found, and in a short
while thereafter he died. His partner and
friend, Cleveland, engaged an attorney, who,
after some delays, succeeded in locating her
in .Jackson county of this State, where he
found the girl living on a farm a few miles
below Gainesville, a true country lass in
plain garments and perfectly contented
with her condition, getting the frugal allow
ance of 25 cents a day.
The attorney told her of his mission and
had no little trouble to convince her of the
truth of the situation. She could not real
ize that she was to be put in possession of so
immense a sum as $100,000. The attorney
at last persuaded her to go with him to get
her fortune, after fully establishing her
identity. She went to Massachusetts,

found to he worth $60,000, and steps were
commenced at once to put her in possession
of that, too. Everything having been ar
ranged satisfactorily, she left for Tennessee
and arrived in Nashville a few days ago.

is that a young man named Shores, who
