tlon Without a Contest No Combination
of tho Opposing Forces Now Considered
The first day's session of the Ohio State
Republican Convention developed the fact
that Governor Foraker is yet the strongest
candidate for the nomination as head of
the State ticket, but that if Congressman
McKinley chooses to allow his name to go
before the convention he could secure the
nomination even from Foraker. The other
candidates could form no combination in
opposition to the Governor.
Columbus, O., June 25. The prelimin
ary work of the Republican State Conven
tion was disposed of this evening and the
machinery is ready for operation to-morrow
morning when the convention meets for the
nomination of a State ticket The commit
tees have all been appointed and are at
work this evening agreeing upon a perma
nent organization, and it is probable that
Congressman McKinley will be selected as
Chairman. The Committee on Resolutions
will likely be in session to a late hour, pre
paring a platform which will meet with the
indorsement of the convention.
Forakcr's Strenetb Very Evident.
The first session of the convention this
evening was strongly indicative of the
strength which Governor Foraker hasamong
the delegates, and is the best indication that
he will be nominated to-morrow. In the
speech of the Temporary Chairman, Mr.
Cooper, the name of Foraker, when men
tioned, brought the delegates to a wonder
ful state of enthusiasm, as did also the men
tion.othe.nanie. of McKinley. It -Is. Re
lieved th'at McKinley is the only man on
the ground who would stand any chance of
compassing the deieat of Foraker for the
nomination, but HcKinley says he is honest
in bis statements, and that he cannot ac
cept the nomination under any circum
stance. No Opposing: Combination Possible
There have been several efforts to-day to
form a combination against Foraker which
Bight seenre his defeat, but the regular
candidates have found, when they got to
gether, that each thinks he has so much
strength that no one of them will get out of
the way. The result of this will undoubted
ly be that Foraker will carry off the prize.
Keifer, Buttcrworth, McKinley, Grosvenor
and Thompson are opposed to Foraker, and
will do what they can te prevent his nom
ination, but on account of the apparent cer
tainty of his selection, they do not care to
place themselves in the position of making
an open fight against him.
Foraker Tet the Master of All.
There is no important change from the
situation of last night, -which was and still
remains that Foraker is master of the situ
ation and will not likely be defeated, but
Trill head the ticket, unless he chooses at
the last moment to get out of the way him
self. He is reported as having said to-day
that he thought the convention owed him
the nomination, and that he should not be
compelled to make a contest for it The
other candidates are holding up well, and
will make the best showing possible in the
convention. They are now each proceed
ing upon the theory that Foraker may fin
ally conclude not to accept, and they will
then be
In lor the Fight.
It is conceded in such an event the Dawes
delegates have the best showing in the con
vention, with Kennedy and Jones coming
The speeches of A. T. Brinsmade, of
Cleveland, and Congressman Cooper were J
both of the radical order, and consisted of
reviews of the work of the party in the State
and nation, and what it was proposed to do
in the coming contest Mr. Cooper revived
the Payne Senatorial election, and insisted
that the Republicans would make it un
necessary for another such performance in
the future. The resolution on the death of
Mrs. Haye was received with much feeling
in the convention.
Kontlne of the First Session.
The following is the routine report of the
day's proceedings: The convention assem
bled at the Metropolitan Opera House at 4
p. M. The stage was elaborately decorated.
In addition to the 828 delegates there were
over 1,000 spectators. Congressman Mc
Kinley's appearance as a delegate from the
Eighteenth district was greeted with en
thusiastic applause. Rev. Francis E.
Harsten, of Columbus, opened the the con
vention with prayer. Hon. Allen T, Brins
made, of Cleveland, read a communication
from Hon. "William Monaghan, of Colum
biana county, announcing his inability to
be prescntand act as Chairman of the con
vention, on account of a previously ar
ranged business trip to Mexico.
Mr. Brinsmade, in a happy manner, in
troduced the temporary chairman, Hon.
"W. C. Cooper, or Mt Vernon. Mr. Cooper
xnadejin address touching upon the tariff,
pensions, -and civil service reform, as well
as matters of State interest His remarks
favoring civil service were not enthusiasti
cally received. The mention of Governor
Foraker's name called for an expression
from the convention that indicated the
sentiment on the probable nominee for Gov
ernor. A Great Demand for McKinley.
At the close of Mr. Cooper's address there
was a universal call for McKinley, but that
gentleman did not respond, and the conven
tion resumed business. The secretary,
Henry Rehse, of Cincinnati, announced the
following committees:

Democratic Editors bee In Cleveland De
mocracy's Gnidlnc Star for 1S92.
Indianapolis, June 25. The Cleve
land boom is on in Indiana. On the 14th
the Democratic editors and publishers of
the State held a meeting at Terre Haute.
Last evening they held an adjourned meet
ing in this city. They will hold another on
July 1. There were 15 editors present yes
terday from different parts of the State.
They were a unit in believing that Grover
Cleveland is the coming man for '92. Mr.
Short, of the Franklin Democrat, said he
talked with every marf present with refer
ence to the matter, and he found no one
favoring anyone eise. "We think that
Cleveland is the greatest leader the Democ
racy ever had. If the nominating conven
tion should occur to-day he would be nomi
nated by acclamation." Mr. Arnold, of
the Greencastle Star-Press, heartily in
dorsed every expression put forth by Mr.
Mr. J. B. Schwin, of the People's Friend,
said: "Cleveland is our natural leader.
All our people think so. I am thoroughly
for Cleveland, but of course shall support
the nominee if that be other than the ex
President As between Cleveland and Hill,
there can be no choice. Everybody ii for
Mr. J. Ii. Smith, of the Dana Jfeict:
"That's just the way X look at the matter."
Mr. John Johnson, Jr., of the Bedford
Democrat, said : "I am from the deepest
Republican hole in the Slate Lawrence
county. The Republicans threatened to
kill off my paper, but it has run for 16
years and is on its feet yet Our Democrats
are of the Cleveland type. In him we rec
ognize our natural leader,"
The other editors expressed themselves,
but none of them would suggest a possible
substitute for Cleveland's name on the next
national ticket .
General Cameron Passes Hli Most Trying
Day His Vitality at Last Shows Signs
of Succumbing Not Expected
to Survive Another Day.
Mt. Joy, Jane 25. This was the most
trying of all the days at Donegal Springs
since General Cameron was stricken down
with paralysis. His vitality began early
in the day to show signs of
succumbing at last He still took
no nourishment, and the end was looked
forward to from -moment to moment. Dr.
Bachman drove over from his house in May
town last night, arriving at Donegal at 1120
o'clock. His horse and wagon were put up
and he began his watch at the General's
bedside as usual. Ex-United States At
torney General MacVeagh joined him.
The General was very low and the physi
cians had only small hopes of his pulling
through the night He slept with seeming
comfort, however,and when daylight dawned
and he awoke, he appeared to be in a degree
refreshed. There was no sign of any return
of strength, however. On the contrary, he
was weaker. Dr. Bachman left at 8:30, and
the vigil of the sick room was continued by
Mrs. MacVeagh and Mrs.Haldeman, his
daughter and his granddaughter.
The General's mind is still clear, as man
ifested by his observation of the people
about him and things that went on, but it
was manifest that his strength had sunk
lower than it had been, and that his end
would be a matter of a very brief time.
The day, which broke in clouds,
turned raw, and later a dismal rain
set in and continued throughout
the day. The patient was made as comfort
able as possible, though there was no evi
dence that he had felt any discomfort His
eyes were less expressive than at any time
during his illness, and his whole appearance
was that of extreme weariness.
.Many inquiries came to the house during
the day, and the reply was that the General
was not expected to survive the night
A Fatal Wreck on a Bridge of the St. Lonls,
Arknnsas and Texas Railway.

Hold Up the Cashier nnd Help Themselves
Freely to the Boodle.
Denver, June 25. A daring bank rob
bery was committed at noon to-day in Tellu
ride. While the cashier of the San Miguel
Valley Bank, C. F. Painter, was alone in
his private office counting up the day's
business, three masked men entered -with
revolvers in their hands. The leader at
once demanded that all cah be turned over
to them. Being alone and unarmed, the
frightened cashier allowed one of the gang
to enter behind the counter and with the aid
of a toy shovel fill his bag with all in sight.
Having secured the money the party made
their way to the street, where they mounted
their horses and departed for the mountains.
An alarm was at once given. It was found
that the robbers had taken $20,750. A tele
gram received heie late this afternoon says
the robbers are between the Trout lakes
and the big bend of the Dolores river. A
posse is in hot pursuit
Bernard Stalter Receives aFatal Hart In the
Midnight Explosion.
Youngstown, June 25. Bernard Stal
ter, one of the victims of the boiler explo
sion al Remer's brewery last night, is sink
ing, and will probably die before morning.
One of his broken ribs was driven through
his right lung. The other men are resting
as comfortable as possible, and will recover.
Richter, the dead engineer, had his head
blown clear off. The residences near the
brewery look as though they had been bom
barded'by shot and shell from the pieces of
boiler and bricks being hurled through
them. In the house of Peter Kelly, a bed
on which two children were sleeping was
splintered by a large section of the boiler,
but the occupants escaped.
The loss will not fall short of 580,000, on
which there is an insurance of $45,950. The
brewery will be rebuilt as soon as the insur
ance is adjusted.

The Secret Workings of the Clan-Na-Gael
How Made .Public
Assassination by Dynamite One of the Pre
cepts Advanced.
Every Effort is Being Made to Find Cooney, the Com
panion of Bnrke.
An ex-member of the Clan-na-Gael has
made a revelation of tho secrets of the order.
He does this because he thinks it his duty.
He denounces the organization as murder
ous in its teachings. The oath demands im
plicit obedience to superiors, no matter
what is commanded. The pursuit of the
alleged slayers of Cronin continues.
Philadelphia, June 25. The Dis
patch correspondent was to-day furnished
by an ex-member of the Clan-na-Gael with
an important statement, which includes its
initiation ceremonies. This statement was
furnished to Archbishop Ryan, and it is
now published for the first time. Here is
the method used to secure new members.
Said he:
"You are indirectly approached by amem
bcr of the order, who intimates to you that
he knows of an organization working in
favor of Irish liberty, and informs you he
can secure your admission therein; but no
further information can he impart until you
become a member of the order. After hav
ing signified yonr willingness to join you
are brought to an ante-room. You are there
asked a series of questions, of which the
following are the salient ones: Name, age,
place of birth and occupation.
"You are then sworn to the effect that
shonld you now or at any other part of the
proceedings become a member yon will
never reveal any part of the workings made
known to you. The conductor, sword in
hand, enters from an inner room.
"You are then blind-folded by the person
who secured your election therein, and acts
as your escort during the initiation. The
conductor, with sword in hand, knocks on
the inner door three times in succession,
and the sentinel inside hails: 'Who comes
there?" The conductor replies, 'Friends of
Ireland who wish to join us in the cause.'
"The sentinel hails presiding officer, who
is known as Senior Guardian, with the ex
pression: 'Friends'who wish to join with
us in the Irish cause of Irish freedom; shall
we admit them?' The Senior Guardian an
swers: 'Admit them.' You are then ad
mitted and marched three times around the
room, when you are brought before a man,
who occupies a seat in the middle of the
room. He is known as the Past Guardian,
and asks such questions as pertain to se
crecy. These questions have escaped my
memory. You then proceed to the Junior
Guardian, who sits at the entrance and who
addresses you as follows: .
My friends, you arenow within these secret
walls. The men who surround you have all
taken the solemn obligation of our order upon
them and are endeavoring to fulfill its pledges;
are you trilling to take the obligation?
"Should you answer in the affirmative
you are conducted to the altar, where all
the members stand up and you hold a prayer
book in your hand while the Senior guard
ian administers the oath. The following is
the oath, as near as I can remember it:
I, of my own free will and acord, and In the
presence of Almighty God and of this camp of
the United Brotherhood, do solemnly and sin
cerely swear and will labor while life is left to
establish and defend a republican form of gov
ernment in Ireland, and that I never will reveal
the secrets of this organization to any person
or persons in the world, nor write or cause to
ho written anything pertaining there
to by which Its affairs may be made
known to any persons not lawfully entitled to
know them; that I will observe and obey the
constitution and laws of this organization and
preserve its funds for revolutionary purposes
only, and if an officer thereof I will faithfully
guard all books, papers, etc, intrusted to my
care and to deliver the same to my successor
In office when duly appointed, or to my supe
rior officer when ordered to do so; that I will
obey all orders coming to me from theExecutive
to the best of my ability, whether known or
unknown to me, and finally I swear I take this
obligation on me without hesitation, mental
reservation or any undue Influence brought to
bear on me, and that I will not hereafter be
come a member of any other secret Irish revo
lutionary society so long as I remain a member
of the United Brotherhood, so help me God.
"The bandage is then removed from your
eyes and you are told you are admitted to
light and fellowship in the order, nnd. to
keep your obligations nnder penalty "of
death. You are afterward instructed in
your duties as a member of the brother
hood. I have sketched the form of initia
tion to the best of my recollection, as it is
years since I was initiated. It is not en
tirely complete. Some things have escaped
my memory, but any inaccuracies will be
omissions, as nothing has been added.
"Two years' membershipinthis order con
vinced me it was not the proper school for
Catholics. The training which men receive
within its walls is calculated to exercise an
evil influence on their minds and to imbue
them with a thirst for blood which cannot
but end fatally to those interested and
cast disgrace on the Irish character before
the civilized world. I am -convinced the
Cronin murder was brought about by the
machinations of selfish Irishmen who pre
dominate in this organization, ancLwho use
unthinking, but honest, patriotic Irishmen
as stepping stones to advance themselves'
"I could not enjdy any peace of con
science until I made known to you the
eause that has led to so much disgrace
upon our people. The executive officers
are not known to the members in
the flesh, nor by name, they are merely des
ignated by symbols. Neither have the
members any information as to the disposi

members, have entire control of the funds.

Officer Riley, of the Chicago avenue
station, who was one of ex-Captain
Schoack's warmest favorites, has been per
ewptorily dismissed from the force for pur
loining a letter from the station that was
addressed to Dan Coughlin. It bore a Lon
don date, and it had lain around the station
because the authorities wanted to make use
of it before it reached Coughlin. Riley
took the letter from the' stationlast Friday
and gave it to Pat Gannon, a Clark street
bartender, who testified before the Coroner's
jury. He says he wantedto frighten Gannon
by telling him his name was on the pages
inside, but Gannon, instead of getting
frightened, turned the letter over to the
State Attorney, who at one reported the
matter to Captain Schuetler. The latter
lost no time in depriving Riley of his star.

Austin, Tex., June 25. The killing ot
Red Gibson at Wharton last Saturday by
Kyle Terry has stirred up bad blood in Whar
ton and the adjoining county (Fort Bend)
and there are grave fears that the opposing
factions will clash and much blood be shed.
The Governor has received the following
telegrams in reference to the trouble, which
has been brewing for over a yean
Richmond, June 21
County Attorney J. H. Meek is authorized to
report that as Sheriff of Fort Bend county, I
am unable to enforce tho law without a con
flict of arms, and to ask assistance from tho
State to disarm the community and enforce
obedience to the law. T. Gabvey, Sheriff.
County Judge C. M. Weston also wrote as
Richmond, Jnne 21.
Under the present state of affairs in this
county, it becomes my duty to officially notify
Your Excellency that officers of the county
are powerless to enforce the law. It is impos
sible to disarm the community, and the public
peace and safety of the county demand that It
be done by some other power.
The Governor last night received the fol
lowing telegram:
Kylo Terry killed Red Gibson here last Sat
urday. Examining trial will be on the 26th. A
mob is seriously threatened, and the prison
er's life is in danger. Please order Victoria
Rifles here to-morrow to assist mo in maintain
ing peace during the trial.
J. W. Jones,
Sheriff of Wharton County.
In compliance with the above, the Gov
ernor last night ordered the Victoria Rifles
to Wharton, and this morning ordered
Captain Jones' Rangers to Richmond. The
feud is a political one, but is not confined to
Republicans on one side and Democrats on
the other; but is a mixture, of Democrats
and Republicans, being on each side.
Terry, who killed Mr. Gibson, is a son of
Colonel Terry, of the famous Terry Rangers,
and has a strong following. Gibson, who
he killed, was a prominent man, and had
scores of friends.
The Wild Deed' Committed by a Fiend In
Ilumnn Form.
Medina, U". Y., June 25. One of the
most horrible murders that ever occurred in
Orleans county, took place near Oak
Orchard, a small village seven miles north
of Medina, last evening ' about 5 o'clock.
The facts are as follows: Eugene Emery, a
farmer employed near Oak Orchard and
aged about 40 years, has been paying atten
tion to Cora, the 13-year-old daughter of
James Grimes, a well-to-do-farmer of that
place. The young girls parents forbade
Emery going with her and last evening
when her father and mother were away
and only Cora and her little brother were
home', Emery entered the house and with a
large club of wood, commenced an attack
on the defenseless female and beat her until
life was extinct.
The little brother immediately summoned
hisparents, who telegraphed to the Medina
police and Coroner Mnnson, who arrived
shortly after midnight Emery had escaped,
however, and was not arrested until .about
9 o'clock this morning by Sheriff Searle at
Albion. Great excitement prevails.

Is All the Johnstown Survivors Can
Get Oat of Their Present Fund.
Property losses Reported to Date Amount
to Nearly Five Millions.
An Installment of Heady-Hade Dwellings Arrives
aad falls to Catch On.
At a meeting of the citizens of Johnstown
yesterday it was decided that as a means of
alleviating immediate distress and putting
some money into circulation, the sum of
$10 be given to each survivor, out of the
fund now on hand. The plan is not liked
by many. The losses reported to date
amount to nearly $5,000,000.
Johnstown, June 25. The citizens met
this afternoon to decide on what plan the
money in the hands ot the Finance Commit
tee should be distributed. Mr. A. J. Mox
ham acted as Chairman. He stated the
committeee had originally $200,000, but
$25,000 had been expended for necessary
work and a similar amount would be held,
leaving $150,000 for distribution among the
people. Mr. Moxham moved that" the
money be divided on .a pro-rata basis and
give each person $10 apiece, assuming there
are 15,000 sufferers.
The motion was passed with some dissent
ing votes, but many of the people did not
understand the matter, and since thinking
over the plan they
Rev. Dr. Bealeisone of these men. He
was in the rear of the room when the motion
was made, and was on the point of making
the suggestion that three or more good men
in each ward who know the people should
be appointed to distribute the money among
the sufferers according to their losses and
present needs.
As it is, the rich and poor alikewill get
$10 apiece. It is expected that the wealthy
willbe generous enough to hand over their
portion to their needy neighbors, but Dr.
Beale is not sure that they will do it He
hopes that some better plan can be adopted
to distribute the great body of the funds
collected lor the people. The idea in giving
each person $10 at present was that it would
put that much money in the market, and
give impetus to trade.
Pollinz places will he opened in each dis
trict, where all the sufferers will be record
ed. A motion was carried to appoint a
committee from each borough and township,
for the purpose of forming some
The citizens of each place will meet at 3
o'clock Saturday to elect the committee
men. The committeemen chosen will meet
on Monday afternoon at Waters & Brother's
store, with Cyrus Elder as Chairman.
The Board of Inquiry has formulated the
following plans: The territory has been
divided into 20 districts, and the citizens
will be asked on Saturday to elect six men
of their number, and these men will select
three to act as a Board of Arbitrators and
assist the clerks o,the Inquiry Board in
collecting the data. The board will hold
meetings in two or three districts in a day,
if necessary, to push the work as rapidly as
Rev. Dr. Beale is such a busy man, and
receives so many letters and telegrams that
he isunable to answer them. He states that
he will reply to each one as soon as he has
the time. A Presbyterian Church in Tren
ton sent him 19 boxes of excellent clothing,
which he is distributing among all classes.
As to the distribution of the remainder of
the general relief fnnd General Hastings
stated to-day that he did not know what the
commission intended to do, but he was sure
they would do what was best for the region,
and that they would do it promptly. He
suggested that a correct inventory and as
sessment of all damages sustained by the in
habitants of the valley be made, and that
the remainder of the fund in the hands of
the Relief Committee be distributed pro
rata according to the losses of the indi
viduals thus ascertained; that this assess
ment of individual damage could be barely
approximated by the citizens of the valley
P after they had divided the territory into dis-
tiiuio, auu uy uuuiuiikbeea receiving applica
tions from those claiming relief carefully
scrutinizing their claims, and therebv fixing
a reasonable basis for such distribution.
He urged that no further time should be
lost; that now was the hour of their necessi
ty, and that the relief shonld romp in thotnr
that it was impossible to think of using this
money in building houses and buying food
and clothing to any adequate extent, and
that the best and fairest wav probablv was
to find out the relative damage sustained by
the individual person in the reeioa ana
then make a fair pro rata distribution of
the money among them and let tbem expend
the money to their own best advantage, as
their judgment might indicate. "
After an interview with the committee a
citizens' meeting was held later in the after
noon, at which the following resolution was
Resolved, That the time has arrived in the
judgment of the committee to reduce the
present distribution of supplies, and that Gen
eral Hastings be requested to tako such meas
ures to effect this as mav seem best, and that
we, the committee, approve the consolidation
of the existing commissaries, and placing these
in charge of Captain Kuhn, with such assist
ants as may be necessary.
The Citizens' Committee also sent a tele
gram to Governor Beaver, signed by Joseph
McMillin, Chairman, and Cyrus Elder,
Secretary, stating that they were receiving
houses ordered by them, and that they
would De sole to aavise mm to-morrow in
regard to the suitability of the different
sizes, which might guide him in making
further orders, or in otherwise making im
mediate provision for the shelter of the peo
ple. The above statement of condition of affairs
here was made by General Hastings, to
night. It was telegraphed to General
Beaver, and it is expected the Adjutant
General's official report will follow to-morrow.

An Installment of Portable Houses Not Be.
. ceived With Enthusiasm.
Johnstown, June 25. Ten of the porta
blehousesarrivedthis morning, and themen
are trying to distribute them. One of them, a
very small concern, was put together at the
Baltimore and Ohio depot, and more than
one citizen turned np his nose at it "I
wouldn't live in such a dog kennel," said
one dapper female, with a face red from
anger and disappointment. "Good gra
cious," she continued, "I thought they were
all to have four rooms, but this house hasn't
even one that is decent Most of the ap
plications call for four rooms. But that is
the way of the world. They promise yon
one thing, and you get another. Did you'
ever see such big liars?" and she stamped
her pretty foot into the sand with the spirit
of an Amazon.
But the lady's wrath was unnecessary.
She didn't understand the situation. The
other houses were two stories high, and con
tained the cherished tour rooms. There
were four of them 16x24 feet, and the re
maining six were 10x20 leet
The carpenters had some trouble at first
putting the parts together, but they soon
learned how it was done. The houses are
bolted together, and iron bars keep the sides
in place at the top. The smoke stack is of
galvanized sheet iron, and when the honses
are located the homeless people will find
them well adapted for temporary shelter
during the summer. About650 applications
for portable houses have been made np to

Within the last two days the doctor ha3

tals. Some of them, poor fellows, "are
threatened with typhoid fever, and others
are suffering from other diseases.
The laborers are fretty strong and tough,
as a general rule, but they have endured
such privations here that the great wonder
is they are not all sick. Their condition is

And Where They Excel Greek and Soman in Their
Heads and Hoseles. v
Ben Buttcrworth talked to the Turners at
Cincinnati yesterday, and showed them
wherein they excel the ancients, and are
models for the moderns. In the various
games the prizes were borne off by the
Western people.
Cincinnati, June 25. Military dis
cipline over the 1,200 (some say 1,600) ac
tive Turners, that is, the gymnastic per
formers, relaxed about 1 o'clock to-day when
the grand procession entered in Wood Park
on Vine street line to have a general go-as-you-please
time at the picnic. In Wood
Park is a natural forest on the brow of the
crescent of hills that clasp the main body of
the city, and it bisects the crescent From
it a view can be had of the city below and
of Newport and Covington, Ky., of the yel
low waters of the Ohio river, as well as
of the far away hills of the Licking
River Valley. It is a favorite place for
German outdoor festivities. Here a summer
night festival was given to Franz Abt, the
kepelmeister and composer, when he visited
America several years ago. The competi
tive swimming in the Ohio river was aban
doned to-day, because that stream was too
full of West Virginia mnd and Conemaugh
drift to be safe or comfortable. Early in
the morning, before the parade began, the
active Turners at the campus were addressed
by Colonel Gustav Tafel, the Cincinnati
commandant, and by Hon. Ben Butter
worth, member ot Congress from the First
Ohio district
Ben Butterworth made a happy speech.
It was a pleasure and an honor to be a par
ticipant in this festival. He knew the
origin and the objects of the Turners Asso
ciation. The purpose was the harmonious,
physical, mental and moral development of
men. A strong body to a cultivated mind
was like a fitting setting to a brilliant gem.
The Spartans prized physical culture ex
clusively; the Athenians mental culture.
The Romans combined the two. The
modern Turners made a trinity of
culture by adding high moral
development to the dual culture
of the Romans. "In approval of this idea
of culture I am a Turner," said the speaker)
He then referred to the rush of the Turners
to the front when at the outbreak of tbe re
bellion Abraham Lincoln called for volun
teers, and mentioned the fact that in 23
hours after the call a large force of Cincin
nati Turners were ready to march. He
concluded by mention of celebrated German
regiments, notably the Ninth, which Mr.
Cook called his "bully Dutchmen." Major
Butterworth made a great impression as the
volume and frequency of the cheers tes
tified. At Inwood Park there was plenty of beer,
wine, music and women, members of Cin
cinnati families and of the families of visit
ing Turners. There were refreshment stands
where waffles and Wienerwurst were served,
steaming hot, and there was gymnastie
apparatus for those who chose to use it
The most exciting exercises there were
wrestling matches that were improvised from
time to time. At 8 o'clock to-night there
was a distribution of prizes at the park. In
the society contests they were awarded sep
arately. There were three groups. The
first was composed of societies that repre
sented a membership of over 300. The sec
ond of societies of over 200 and not over 300.
The third of memberships less than 200. In
the first group, in which were represented 24
societies, tbe South St. Louis Verein took
the first prize. In the second group, with 26
entries, West Minneapolis stood first In
the third group, with 18 entries, Dayton, O.,
ranked first Thii shows that 68 societies
were active contestants.
In the individual contests there were 58
entries. Emil Goetz, of Chicago, won the
first place. In the foot racing, 656 feet,
there were four entries. Fred Fashnacht
and G. Falz, of St Louis, tied for first place
in 30 seconds; Emil Goetz. of Chicago, was
second in 30 3-5 seconds, and William Lang,
of Chicago, third in 30 4-5 seconds.
The procession through three miles of
streets this forenoon was a splendid affair,
but its great feature was the division of
1,600 active Turners in their gray uniforms.
About 10:30 to-night a drizzling rain inter
rupted the festivities to the park and many
Turners beat a retreat to the "over the
Rhine" beer gardens. An excursion by a
steamer on a large scale to Coney Island is
the programme for to-morrow.
Among the awards made to-night was
one to,. the Central Turnverein, of Pitts
burg, who received a diploma and
crown. Diplomas were also issued to the
Southside and Birmingham organizations.
