rSrZCI.il. TELXOKAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Philadelphia, August 18. The re
fusal of Samuel J. Bandall to interfere in
the coming State Convention is taken to
have considerably appreciated the chance of
the nomination of E, A. Bigler, of Clear
field county, as the Democratic candidate
for State Treasurer. Patrick Foley, Robert
Morrow and J. W. Giles, who represent the
faction of the Allegheny Democrats who
are opposed toBigler's nomination, and who
came on here to see Mr. Randall, admitted
to-night in conversation that they had little
or no hope of defeating Bigler'snomination,
although they will continue to oppose it, in
the hope that they may secure some assist,
ance from other parts of the State.
MIEY 'WON'T VOTE FOE BIGLER.
Mr. Foley, who is regarded as one of the
shrewdest leaders of the Allegheny Demo
crats, said to-night: "It doesn't matter
who we may cast our votes for. As yet we
have no particular choice, but one thing is
certain, Mr. Bigler will not get our votes or
Mr. Foley admitted that Mr. Bigler's
administration of the office of Be venue Col
lector had been clean and upright, but con
tended that Bigler had not, in the distribu
tion of the places attached to his office,
treated the Allegheny Democrats fairly.and
hat they were under no obligation to serve
- him or his friends.
CX.EVELANDEKS -WILL WIN.
J. W. Giles, who is also opposed to Big
ler's candidacy, is of the opinion that Big
ler desires the nomination as an indorse
ment of his conduct of the Revenue Collect
or's office, and while he also admits that
Bigler made a first-class revenue collector,
yet he thinks that some other man ought to
be nominated. "We hold our primaries on
the 21th and our county convention on the
27th of this month," said Mr. Giles, "and
we intend electing our delegates, even
though there should be no fight, as we can't
afford to allow the other fellows to sneak off
with them." Mr. Giles added that it
looked very much as if the "administration"
Democrats would win this year's fight in the
convention, but says he feels satisfied that
there will be
A DIFFERENT TALE TO TELL
next year, when an entire State ticket is to be
nominated. The distinguished trio of Alle
gheny leaders will leave for home to-night,
in order to shape things for the coming
primaries on the 21th.
While the Democrats of Allegheny are
fighting against Bigler's candidacy, the Re
publicans are busily engaged setting up the
pins for next year's contests in the Congres
sional district ot Representative Bayne and
the Senatorial districts of Newmeyer and
Rutan. One of Magee's lieutenants, B. H.
Lindsay, who was in town to-day, said:
"William Flinn will be elected to succeed
Newmeyer, and John N. Neeb will succeed
Rutan. It don't matter what stories are
printed regarding a patch-up between Quay
and Flinn, Flinn will get the best of it in
any deal with Quay, and,'
WITHOUT CHEATING MAGEE.
"It will be impossible for Quay to defeat
Flinn for Senator, but Magee's friends will
defeat Rutan and elect Neeb. Magee will
also name David Porter to succeed
Congressman Bayne, and he will win the
fight That this is no idle boast can be seen
when it is known that Bayne and Internal
Revenue Collector "Warmcastle, who live in
I the same district, were defeated In their dls
f trict in the late fight for State delegates.
I "We have been told that Quay was willing
to appoint!!. H. Bengough as Pension Agent
as a favor to his friends, but you will find
that Magee will fight Quay and his candi
dates in next year's convention, no matter
how many appointments are given to the
KNOWS BIGLEE WILIi BE BEATEN.
Chairman Andrews, of the Republican
State Committee, who arrived this after
noon, declined to say anything regarding
next year's fight for the Gubernatorial nom
ination, lie said that he was with Senator
Quay at Beaver, Friday night, and that he
will remain here for a few days this week.
He said it looked as if Bigler "would be the
Democratic nominee, but he feels that Boyer
will be elected by a handsome majority, no
matter who shall be the Democratic candi

The Present Southern Candidate for
peaker--A Programme to be Ar-
"' ranged la Washington-. Ilouk
a Fearless and Able
ISrlCIAI. TKXEGBAJf TO TBB MCrATCJM
Washington, August 18. The situation
as to Southern Republican politics is be
coming very much complicated. In the first
- place, the Southern Republicans elected to
the Jf iftv-nrst Uongress are, many of them,
sore at the neglect with which President
Harrison has treated them. They
have talked a great deal among themselves
about the administration's attitude, and
while much that has been stated in the pa
pers as emanating from them is untrue or
exaggerated, there is a large basis of fact in
whathas been called the Southern move
ment. Ho general conference has been held since
Congress adjourned. There has been no
opportunity as yet for such a gathering. A
little later, especially if an extra session
hall be called, to be held in October, as
outlined by Mr. Dlngley, the Southern Re
publicans will git together here, or at least
some of them will, and arrange a pro
gramme. The idea is not to act with abso
lute independence at first and it is not ex
pected that any time it will be necessary to
assume an attitude of hostility to the party
caucus. It is hoped that the demands made
will be complied with before matters have
reached the extreme.
Mr. Brower's candidacy for the Speaker
ship, never serious, was a mere pimple on
the surface, showing the condition of the
blood. Mr. Houk. of Tennessee, is the man
to whom the Republicans of his section turn
instinctively. Houk is a man of ability
and experience. He is a fearless fellow,
and his only disqualification is his occa
sional lack of distnity on the floor. When
his head is cool he knows what to do. The
only other Southern Republican to be
thought of in such connection is Mr. Mc
Comas, of Maryland, perhaps a more solid,
certainly a more dignified person for a place
of responsibility. But McComas has not
made, on certain vital points, so favorably
a record for the purpose in hand as Houk
SAVED BY A SHOT.
A Two-Year-Old Child Flouted Upward
by a Bunch of Toy Balloons Sailing
Over Lake Michigan A Man
With a Repeating; Rifle
Coavenlently on Hand,
Chicago, August 18. Little 2-year-old
Sophie Schwab involuntarily- became a
ballonist to-day, and was wafted high up
over the broad bosom of Lake
Michigan. A rifleman's skill saved
the child's life. The exciting
incident took place at Sheffield Park, and
was witnessed by 1,600 picnickers. An
Italian peddler of toy balloons attempted to
serve two customers at once, and in doing so
let go his string of bright-colored globes.
The cord got twisted about Sophie's left
arm and also in her hair, and the buoyant
rnbber bubbles started heavenward, taking
the youthful seronantalong. Sophie's mother
shrieked and fainted. The bystanders stood
horror-stricken, scarcely breathing as the
balloons swept close to a large oak tree and
the infant grasped a handful of twigs
and checked her flight A muscular
young German was ascending the tree in an
instant, and then crept ont on the branch
nearest the child.
At this moment Sophie's puny strength
gave out and the balloons, suddenly re- -leased,
went again upward at least 100 feet,
drifting then out over the lake. Gust Koch,
a sharpshooter, who was attending a picnic
with his repeating rifle, hurriedly jumped
into a skiff with two compankms and pulled
out into range. Keech succeeded in pierc
ing several of theballoons, each successful
shot helping the bunch to descend. Before
it finally reached the water the boat was at
the spot, and little Sophie did not even get
her feet wet

Mrs. Ilnlda Elwood Rockwell Celebrating
To-Day Her Century.
rerECIAI. IZUSE1K TO THE DISPATCH.!
Nobwalk, Conn., August 18. Among
the limited number of very aged people in
the State there are none so widely and favor
ably known as Mrs. HuldalrElwqpd Rock
well, who lives in a neat little cottage at
Poplar Plains, with her son and his wife,
Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Rockwell. To
morrow she will be just 100 years old, and
the event will be appropriately celebrated.
She attended school at Green's Farms,
and then she became a pupIL A few years
later she was head cook at the tavern kept
by Aaron Burr, now occupied by George
Buckley, at Green's Farms. On January 9,
1809, Miss Huldah Elwood became Mrs.
Joseph Rockwell. Her husband, "Uncle
Joe," died at "Wilton about ten years
ago, aged 88 years. Mrs. Rockwell
has had 13 children. Nine are
dead, and with their father rest
in the Coley burying ground,
at "Weston. Of her descendants, ai far as
known, there are 41 now living. She has
never seen New York and has never ridden
on the cars.
Mrs. Rockwell joined theNorthfield Con
gregational Church 76 years ago, and at dif
ferent dates, in later years, Rev. John
Noyes baptized her 13 children. Mrs.
Rockwell's mother lived to see 103 years.
Her brother, Joseph S. Elwood, of Brook
field, is nearly 80 years old. Mrs. Rock
well enjoys lively society,and her genial dis
position attracts both young and old.
Her hearing is good; her memory is
really wonderful, and her mind and voice
are clear. Several years ago she received
her second eyesight, and she can now see
fairly well without spectacles.
HE WASKT A DETECTIYE.
But He Could Giro Them Point and Beat
Chicago, August 18. The detectives
are great admirers just at this time of
George T. Baker, a Northside decorator.
The reason is that Mr. Baker started out
to catch a thief and caught him.
Mr. Baker is of a very confid
ing and big-hearted nature. So when a
plausible young man named Schowers came
into his employ some time since and
showed a disposition to behave himself Mr.
Baker boosted him from time to time and
then took him into his own family to live.
He even took the young fellow on fishing
trips with him, and in a number of other
ways manifested great confidence in him.
The young man repaid all this kindness by
rifling Mr. Baker's safe and skipping out
with the money.
Inasmuch as this sort of thing has oc
curred to Mr. Baker sevtral times, he
thought the signs pretty right for turning
loose the lion of his wrath; so he notified
the police, and a couple of detectives were
sent out on tne robber's trail. But Mr.
Baker wasn't satisfied to stop there.
He joined in the chase himself, and, after
dodging about from town to town down
in Indiana for about a week, he caught
up with his man, borrowed a pair of hand
cuffs, clapped them on him and dragged
him back to tqwn and into the Central sta
tion as modestly as though he had just
rounded up a lost dog. I believe it has
since developed that the young man whom
Mr. Baker thus keel-hauled has several
wives, is a forger, and is an all-around
smooth party. There are detectives, it ap
pears, who are not in the detective business.

creditably sang the solo of "Better Land, '
the pastor read the First Psalm and the
twenty-ninth verse and twenty-first chapter
of Matthew, and gave out the hymn, "Son
of My Soul, My Savior Dear." The minister
preached from the parable of the fig tree. A

glorify God for His kindness. The service
closed with "All Hail the Power of Jesus'
As the congregation was dismissed, Presi

The latest information from Hayti is that

sympathize with Hippolyte.
ISFKCXAX. TEtlOBiilTO THE D18M.TCH.1
Boston, August 18. Chief Engineer
George B. Plumer, of the Haytian corvetts
Desalines, who has just returned to Boston
on the steamer Andes, from Port-au-Prince
direct, says that Legitime is now virtu
ally in charge of the entire island. Hippo
lyte's forces, since their effective repulse,
have been in the "bushes," and are scattered
toward the north of the island. Legitime's
men-of-war are thoroughly fitted out, and
he is undoubtedly receiving financial as
sistance from the French Government.
When Engineer Plumer received his last
salary at Hayti he says that General Cen
tres went aboard the French ram and re
turned with a bag of gold, and then paid off
the officers. The army under General Gau
ruerre is in Port-au-Prince, and is in first
class condition, the men being
XVEM, FED AND WELI, CLOTHED.
Legitime is living in the palace with his
family and his special armed body-guard,
which attends him everywhere. All the
Americans have left the city.
Captain Fisher, of the Belize, now called
La Defense, was the last white man to
leave. Four went to Havana on the Span
ish steamer Manuels,the others going North
on the steamer Saratoga. The city is not
entirely tranquil, there being occasional
outbursts of disorder.and several incendiary
fires occur each week. The city is without
a fire department.
The day on which Engineer Plumer left
Port-au-Prince there were two English gun
boats about the size of the United States
steamer Ossipee, which was also there, two
Frenchmen, a ram and a barque-rigged
man-of-war. carrying five guns, all Krupps.
Among the embarrassments which Legitime
has to encounter is thev
OPEN EXPRESSION OP SYMPATHY
by the business men of the city for Hippo

quent occurrence to hear prominent citizens
say they would "go right out and help Hip
polyte if he would take possession of the
town." Everybody is crazy for American
gold, which brings 40 per cent premium.!
General Gauruerre has expressed the
opinion that he doesn't think another battle
will be necessary, but the complete sur
render of Hippolyte will soon be effected.
The present condition of affairs is an entire
reversion of what was expected three weeks
ago. The only resources which Hippolyte
has are those which he has secured while
occupying St Marc When these shall be

The weather has been continuously de

He is supposed to have been well-to-do, as
he had a large amount of baggage and

of the five men to be hanged in this city
Friday is Charles Giblin, a slight Irish
youth, who, though 25 years old, has a face
as smooth as a child's. He is the son of an
Irish farming family, and had been in New
York only a few weeks before the fatal event
of his life occurred. He is married, and
his wife and two children have been to see
him in the jail. Giblin had a good educa

cleverly. Howe & Hummel will argue
to-morrow before Judge Ingraham for
a new trial for him, on the ground of newly
discovered evidence. The young man hopes
that they will succeed, for he declares he
acted in selt-defense.

quired -to furnish bonds of $1,000.
Salt Lakers heard it intimated some time
ago that the deputies were on Thurman's
trail. This is understood to be the be-
finning of a new crusade, and it would not
esurprislng if JohnBrighamYounir, son of
the late President, would bo arrested on a
similar charge. From what can be ascer
tained it would. appear that United States
officials in future would devote their time
to the heads of the church instead of its fol
lowers. Thurman's arrest is the talk of the
Territory to-day owing to his prominence.
K. OP L. TR0UBLBS IN BOSTON.
The Clgarmakers Assembly Ignored by the
Kest of the Order.
ISrZCIAI. TELEGRAM TO THX DISPATCH. 1
Boston, August 18. There is a serious
split in the Knights of Labor forces in this
city, and it looks as though there would be
two parades on Labor Day. That means
a day of hostilities and broken heads.
The trouble began a year ago when Local
Assembly No. 80 was organized in spite of
protests from other assemblies. This
body of cigarmakers were brought
from New York to Boston to supply the
places of striking workmen. The strikers
were members of the Cigarmakers' Union.
The new men, through the aid of influential
employers, secured a charter as Local As
sembly No. 60, and were recognized by the
K. of xj. officials.
When the plans were laid for a parade
on Labor Day, Local Assembly No. 80
demanded a place in the line. There
was a general kick, but the K. of L. officials
sustained the demand of No. 80. The other
orders looked upon thenembers of No. 80
as non-union, in spite of the official
recognition by the K. of L. authorities
and determined to ignore the orders
from headquarters. Then came another
order to recognize No. 80, and to-day there
was an insurrection. The members of the
Carpenters and Amalgamated Building
Trades Unions .voted not to parade with
the obnoxious members and the Cigar
makers' Union also voted against the K. of
L. The result will be rival parades and a
dismissal from the K. of L. for insubordin
ation. There are warm times in prospect
for Boston labor agitators.

ISrECMX TILEOKAM TO THX EISPATCHCl
Cincinnati, August 18. John L. Sulli
van arrived here at 7 o'clock this evening at
the Central depot, and having less than 30
minutes to make the connection with the
Pennsylvania road he took a carriage at
once and made the best possible speed across
the city, where he took a sleeper very
quietly. His friend Matt Clune was with
him. He received an ovation from by
standers at the Central station, butl at the
r Pennsylvania no one was expecting him
and he was unobserved.
John L. was in good spirits, in good
health and in every way seemed to be in
good shape. He said the people all seemed
to be on his side in the trial at Purvis and
he never in nis life received kinder treat
ment than he received there by citizens.
He was very guarded in his conversation
about the civil courts, though he did say he
thought his sentence was anther harsh, all
THE PEOSPECT AHEAD.
He has been assured that when he does
go to jail, if a new trial does not result in a
lighter sentence, that friends will buy his
services at $9 a week, in which case, how
ever, he will not be permitted to leave the
State of Mississippi pending the term of his
sentence. His lawyers have comforted him
with their great faith that ho will secure a
new trial and that it will go better with him
next time. At the end of six months he
will know whether his fate is to go to jail or
stand another trial.
Meantime his plan is to at once organize
an athletic company m New York and go
starring over the countrv until he hears
from the State of Mississippi again.
Though cheerful and hopeful, John was
nevertheless serious, and while quite ready to
answer questions as to general matters, he
was disposed to reveal the very least possi
ble about the Mississippi affair. In fact the
only real news that he imparted was about
his scheme to devote his next six months of
freedom to the athletic show business. He
admitted only known and tried friends to
an audience, and seemed anxious to avoid
the publio gaze.
I.OWET WILI. BE lENIENT.
A special dispatch from Baltimore says:
The man most surprised at Sullivan's
sentence is Defective Childs. He said he
felt confident thafSalllvan would be re
quired to serve but a snort term of his
sentence, abd'ihVsame leniency would be
"I am satisfied," he continued, "that Sul
livan will be pardoned by Governor Lowry,
as will also Kilrain, if tried and sentenced.
In fact Governor Lowry stated that he
would act leniently with them, and inti
mated that he would pardon them. Kilrain
appears to be atraid that he will be put to
breaking stone or some other unpleasant
lorm ot woric .Even u ne sbouia
serve a term, which, as I said,
I feel sure will not be the case,
there need be no fear that he will be put to
hard labor. The contractor for all of the
prison labor in the county is Mr. Bich, a
friend of the pugilists, on whose place the
battle came off. He has a big sawmill and
a farm. Mr. Bich said some time ago that
if Sullivan and Kilrain became prisoners
he would furnish them with horse, rifle and
fishing tackle, and send them daily to shoot
and get fish for the other prisoners. He
would treat them like gentlemen.
Kilrain, in speaking of the sentence,
said: "I told my friends that the affair
would result more seriously than they im
agined, but they still insisted that there
was too much fooling over the trial to end
in anything. Well, 12 months, I am sorry
for that, sure, but I can stand it as well as
Sullivan and feel none the worse either
after the jear is up. By jove, I guess I'll
have to spend Chrismas, New i Year and
Tnanesgiving in jail; that s tough."
When asked whether he had any idea of
jumping town, he said: "No, not in the
least Mr. Booney has gone my bail and I
don't mean to have him sacrifice anything
for me after he has been so kind. I intend
to face the music"

LYNCHED IN A flUEBY.

Strang Up aad Riddled With
Bullet The Authorities
Savannah, Ga., August 18. Walter
Asburg, alias Berriam, colored, was lynched
at Fooler, ten miles west of Savannah, this
morning, for assault upon Lula Kissman,
a 17-year-old German girl, yesterday
afternoon. The assault was made
upon the girl at her home while the
family was away. She was terribly beaten
in a struggle with her assailant, but she
successfully resisted him. Her clothing
was torn from her body, her face was terri
bly beaten and gashed, one eye was
closed, and the finger-marks were deep on
her neck, which was so wrenched that she
was unable to turn her head. The struggle
must have lasted several minutes.
The floor and furniture were covered with
blood and the girl's hands were bloody
where she fought her assailant. Her cries
attracted a colored man who was near by
and who rescued her from her assailant's
clutches. Asburg sprang through a door
and escaped, but in the next house he
knocked down a woman and seized a double
barreled shotgun and fled to the woods.
In an hour the whole town was in arms
and a mounted posse started in pursuit.
About midnight the negro was found at a
dance about a mile from the scene of the
assault He was taken back to the girl's
house and she identified him as her assail
ant His clothes were covered with blood
from the encounter with the girl. He con
fessed the crime and begged for mercy.
Three hundred masked men hurried him to
an open field near a railroad, where he was
strung up to a tree and riddled with bullets.
Across his body was pinned a paper with
the inscription: "This is the way we protect
Asburg asked for time to pray, and it
was given him, and he begged that word be
sent to his wife. The body was left hang
ing all the day, and the Coroner'will go to
morrow and cut it down. The authorities
attempted to prevent the lynching, but the
masked crowd was so great that they could

The Novel Method of Solcide Adopted by a
Kansas City, August 18. A. Musser,
at one time a well-known and respected citi
zen of Brunswick, Mo., to-day made a novel
attempt at suicide that will doubtless prove
successful. Mr. Musser was arrested yes
terday afternoon at the Union depot charged
with the theft of numerous satchels. In
three of the satchels were valuable papers,
which he hid in different parts of the city.
To-day,guarded by two officers, he was taken
out to find the papers, and while passing a
cable street road, he threw himself in front
of a p&sing train before the officers could
restrain him and sustained injuries that will
prove fatal. y
Musser was noted in Missouri for a duel
fought during war times with Bobert Han
cock, a rival newspaper editor at Bruns
wick, Mo. The former's revolver missed
fire, but he stood calmly in his position
while his antagonist shotat him three times.
Then grasping the cane of one of the sec
onds, he thrashed Hancock so severely that
the on-Iookers vfeie obliged to interfere.
Until a few years ago Mr. Musser was a
well-known contributor to a newspaper syn

CSFXCIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1
Petebsbubg, Va., August 18. The
State Democratic Convention having been
held, and a State ticket nominated, the eyes
of politicians in Virginia now turn to the
Bepublican State Convention, to be held in
Norfolk on Thursday, the 22d inst The
convention will be composed of 760 dele
gates, one delegate to every 200 voters iu
the State. It will be called to order by
General William Mahone, the Chairman of
the Bepublican State Committee, who is a
delegate to the convention from the Third
ward in Petersburg.
There are various speculations and con
jectures as to who will be the nominees of
the convention. It may, with safety, be
stated that General Mahpne will be nomi
nated, but it remains to be seen whether he
will accept the nomination. Mahone is
anxious to get back into the United States
Senate, more so than he is to be Governor,
and it is believed by both Bepublicans and
Democrats that he will allow the convention
to nominate him for Governor, and will
then decline the nomination and name the
man he prefers as a candidate.
In addition to General Mahone, the Hon.
Henry Bowen and Colonel William Lamb,
ex-Mayor of Norfolk, are mentioned as
probable candidates for gubernatorial honors.
Bowen is a Blue Grass farmer of Tazewell
county. He has been in Congress for two
terms, and is now a contestant for a seat in
the Fifty-first Congress from the Ninth
General Wyatt M. Elliott, of Campbell
county, is prominently mentioned as the
candidate for Lieutenant Governor, and Gen
eral James A. Walker, of Pulaski county,
for Attorney General. Ex-Mayor Lamb, of
Norfolk, it is said, is Mahone's choice for
Governor, and if Mahone does not accept
the nomination, Lamb in all probability
will head the ticket for Governor.
A prominent Maboneite informs The
Dispatch correspondent that the salient
points in the gubernatorial election will be
the State debt question, the repeal of the in
ternal revenue, the passage ot the Blair ed

son of the split in the Bepubli
can party, especially in the Fourth
district Ex-Governor William E. Cam
eron, one of the most prominent
lights of the anti-Mahone faction, says he
will not support Mahone or. any one on the
ticket with him. The ex-Governor says Ma
hone is pursuing his old false methods and
his political promise to pay is going to pro
test. Mr. Cameron, being asked what he
thought of the Democratic State ticket, re
plied that he thought it a very representa
tive one. He was next asked who he
thought will be the nominee of the Bepub
lican Convention for 'Governor. His an
swer was that he did not think it will be
Mahone, but either Lamb, or Norfolk, or
Bowers, of Tazewell county.
How the negroes of the State, who hereto
fore have been opposed to. Mahone and his
tyrannical policy, will vote in the approach
ing State election is a subject of much spec
ulation. The Hon. John M. Langston, who
is considered one of the leaders ot his race
in the South, was asked by The Dispatch
correspondent whether the negroes of the
State who have in the past opposed Mahone
would vote for him for Governor, Mr. Lang
ston,, who is usually always ready to talk,
seemed disinclined to say anything on the
subject The only reply that he gave to the
interrogatory was that he was now very
busily engaged about matters connected
with the contest he is making for his seat in
Congress, and that he would have to be very
prudent how he talked on political matters.
Langston has quite a large following of
negroes in the Fourth district It is a well
known fact that Mahone and Langston are
not on very friendly terms, by reason of
Mahone having used all possible efforts to
defeat i Langston for Congress from the
Fourth district It is hardly possible, after
the treatment he received from Mahone.
that Langston will support him for Gov
ernor. The split in the Bepublican party in the
State will, of course, be advantageous to the
Democratic party, who have nominated a
very strong ticket. It is the universal be
lief, which is shared br the Bepublicans,
that Captain Phil McKinney, of Farmville,
is the strongest and most popular man that
the Democrats could have nominated for
Governor. He is a fine lawyer and an elo
quent speaker. He will enter upon a can
