Everything is sow in readiness for the
Ohio Democratic Convention, which meets
in Dayton next Tuesday. The friends of
James Campbell and Lawrence T. Keal are
each confident that their farorite will re
ceive the Gubernatorial nomination. There
are other candidates who may he heard from.
rsr-ECiAi, TiLraRAM to the DisrATcn.1
Columbus, August 24. The advance
guard of the great army of Democrats who
will be at Dayton the fore part of next
week has already taken up their line of
march for the Gem City. Never since 1883
has there been such a large nnmber of can
didates for the seven State offices. There
are three avowed candidates for Governor,
and any number of prominent Democrats
who are down in the woods with a Guberna
torial pole erected, hoping the lightning
(TOO volts, more or less) may strike them.
A dozen men in different parts ot the
State have announced themselves as candi
dates for Lieutenant Governor, while candi
dates for the other places on the ticket are
like the sands on the seashore. All Demo
crats are confident of a victory this year,
hence the number ot candidates. Ex-Congressman
Campbell sttll holds the leading
place, with Lawrence T. Keal a close
second. Real claims that he will go into
the convention with SCO votes against 312
for Campbell and 110 for Klein, and that he
(Neal), will be nominated on the second
THEIE RELATIVE STEENGTH.
This, however, is a very enthusiastic esti
mate, as Campbell will undoubtedly have a
good lead on the first ballot. The only
chance ot his defeat lays in the field com
bining on Neal or a dark horse after the
test show of strength. Klein, can hardly be
considered to be in the race. He will have
the Cuyahoga delegation and the votes of
some other northern counties at the outset,
but will scarcely hold them long.
Campbell's support is most solid in the
southern part of the State, including his
own county of Butler and a majority of the
Hamilton delegation. He was the first
candidate announced, and secured many
pledges before the opposition was organ
ized. His backing includes the majority of
tue practical politicians ot tne party In tne
State. Xeal's delegates are mainly from
the rural counties, and are generally tariff
reformers of the most pronounced stripe. It
is barely possible that a dark horse may be
called on, in which case Frank Hurd, of
Toledo, may become the center of the break.
Hon. John E. Jlonnot, of Canton, is a
prominent candidate for Lieutenant Gov
ernor. His chances, however, are handi
capped by the fact that Prof. Charles C.
Davidson, the eminent educator, who re
sides in the same county, desires to be State
School Commissioner and will probably re
ceive the nomination.
Hon. Calvin S. Brice, Chairman of the
Democratic National Committee, has
signified his intention of attending the con
vention. He will go from New York to his
(home in Lima, and from there to Davton.
Republican papers are attacking 3Ir. lirice.
yelling "Coal oil candidate," "Trust United

the matter, however, is that Mr. Brice is not
nor will hr be a candidate for United States
Senator. He never had a dollar's worth of
stock in the Standard Oil Company, nor is
he engaged in forming or managing trusts
of any description. .
"Mr. Brice is interested in the immense de
velopment of the natural gas business in
Ohio, and is working plants for all they are

SULLIVAN'S BENEFIT A FIZZLE.
Revere Selectmen Impose Condition!
Which Cannot be Fulfilled.
tEPECiii. TiLraniii to the oisrATcn.i
Boston, August 24. There is another
and more serious hitch in the arrangements
for John L. Sullivan's benefit at Oak
Island on Saturday. The Selectmen have
heard from many of the leading
and influential citizens of the town, and
now they are hedging in their promise to
grant a license by imposing conditions
that will make it impossible ior
Sullivan to meet his friends at
51 per friend. They sav they will grant
the license if the Boston police will send
30 men to help preserve order. The Boston
police officials refuse to send any men out
of the city limits, and as the Revere Select
men will consent to no other terms, it looks
as though the benefit would not come off.
It was proposed to engage a Boston thea
ter and charge 50 cents admission for those
who desired to shake hands with the chani-
pian, but a little canvassing showed that
such a plan would be suicidal from a finan
cial standpoint, and it was abandoned. Sul
livan is still at the beach and has postponed
his coming until Monday.
HIS SIN FOUND HIM OUT.
A Lnrnmee Man Arrested for Murder Makes

ISPICIAI. TXLXQXL1M TO TIK DI8rATCn.l
Denver, August 24. A telegram from
Laramee received this evening says Dwight
Rockwell, who was arrested in North Park
for the murder of Robert Burnett, has made
a confession. He and George Black went to
Burnett's ranch, and Black shot down the
cccentri- old man in his cabin, firing three
shots. They then took the body to a gully
two miles .way, where they built a fire with
logs and cremated it.
Rockwell was brought in from North
Park last night by Sheriffyund. "When
arrested his exclamation was: "My GodI
Have I been run in on that thing? Any
way, I expected that" He was working
on the ranch on the Michisan. All the
news of the finding of Burnett's remains
was kept from him. Since he had been at
the ranch he had been moody and absent-
minded, and admitted that he had trouble

Asbury. Paek, N. J., August 24. The

of the law. James A. Bradley, the founder
of Asbury Park, bas tried in vain to

The United States steamer Galena has
been ordered to sail from New Yorfc to-morrow
morning for Hayti. She trill take at
least a week on the passage providing she
does not run into the hurricane which is
supposed to be coming up the Gulf Stream
in the opposite direction. Acting Secretary
walker says that it appears from Admiral
Gherardi's" telegram that the worst of the
trouble is over now. Still it will be pru
dent and necessary, perhaps, to keep a
United States man-of-war in Haytian waters
for some time to come to provide against the
contingencies of riot or lawlessness which
may endanger American interests.
The Department of State has not yet
communicated with Minister Douglass on
the subject of his immediate departure for
Hayti, as suegested by Admiral GherardL
It is believed that the request for his pres
ence is caused by a belief that the relations
between'the presentUnited States represent
ative and the other foreign representatives
have become somewhat strained. Mean
while it is stated as a reason for the delay
in sending Minister Douglass to his post,
that this Government is in grave doubt as to
the proper authority to whom he should be
accredited, and while this was something of
a problem in Legitime's administration, it
has become even more complicated since bis

Smith cut of bed, placed 'him astride ot a
rail, told him that he would be killed if he
did not keep his position, and in this man
ner started on a five-mile trip with him
across the town.
On the way, as they were passing through
a covered bridge, one brawny fellow pro
posed to lynch the culprit, and in a second
naif the men were willing to carry out this
suggestion. A rope was thrown "over a
beam and a noose fastened about Smith's
neck. In tbe meantime one of
the men had been pleading with the
others not to lose their heads, but bis en
treaties were of no avail until he began to
pray for the unfortunate fellow. This had
tbe desired effect and Smith was allowed
his liberty on the condition that he must
never be seen in this region again.

Bnssla Is Sow Endeaiorinc to Arrange an Alliance
There is no great change in the European
situation, but the talk of trouble still con
tinues. The Czar's visit to Berlin is purely
formal. Russia is seeking strength to coun
teract the new alliance.
tCOrTRIOHT, 1889, BT THE SEW TORK ASSOC! ATID
Berlin, August22. Compared -with the
visit of the late Emperor "William to
Alsace-Lorraine in 1877, the present Em
peror's visit was a phenomenal success.
Alter making every allowance for official
zeal in stirring the Provinces to enthusi
asm, the Emperor's reception "indicates the
remarkable progress made in Germanizing
the Provinces during the past decade.
The journey lrom Strasburg to Met was a
triumphal progress. All the intermediate
stations were.gaily decorated and crowded
with people, who cheered the Emperor,
whose tact in the difficult and tempting cir
cumstances was remarkable. He made brief
replies to the various toasts, etc., but said
not a word, at which the French could be
offended. The only incident that possibly
can cause anxiety arose from the passport
NOT TO BE MOVED.
The President of the Strasburg Chamber
of Commerce, on being presented to the
Emperor, petitioned him to abolish the
present rigorous regulations. The Enperor
bri3y expressed regret at his inability to
do anything in this direction.
By order of Prince von Hohenfche. an
imperial decree was published in Strasburg
to-night expressing the thanks of thtir Ma
jesties for the brilliant receptions accorded
mem, wnicn, tne aecree says, sirfnginen
the conviction that these originally Ger
man territories, inhabited 'as they are by an
honest, intelligent population, will become
still more closely attached to the Father
land. At a gala dinner in Muenster Castle to
night the Emperor, replving to a toast to
his health, dwelt upon the energy and en
durance of the "Westphalians, whose prin
ciples, he said, he imbibed in his youth, his
tutor having been a Westphaliau. West
phalia has always shown itself loyal to the
A MILITARY SPIRIT.
He hoped that the "Westphalian sword.

the future, as in the past, give evidence of
its keenness if it should again be necessary
to unsheath it in defense of the United
Fatherland. He drank "Prosperity to

Count Herbert Bismarck, interrupting
his holiday, lelt Hamburg to-day for Muen

Owing, however, to the opposition of the

The police have prohibited the circulation
of a pamphlet which the Socialists have

Berlin, in 1882, contained 24 Socialist so

SanFeancisco, August 24. Detectives
here are keeping a close watch for Milton
Anthony Sharp, the cleverest stage robber
who ever operated on this coast. He re
cently escaped from the Nevada peniten
tiary, and is thought to be in hiding in this
Sharp is a Missonrian, and, according to
detectives, is a more expert all-around
knight ot the road than "Black Bart" or
any other aspirants to that distinction. He
has frequently held up two stages in one
night, and seems perfectly able to get away
with nearly all there is in the box, in spite
of the presence of a shotgun messenger, such
as the express company used to send with
its treasure shipments through the mount
ains. He does not indulge in doggerel re
flections, like his more celebrated, confrere,
but does "holding up" more neatly.
About nine years ago Sharp and a
partner named Jones held np two stages on
the divide line between Carson City and
Aurora, Ner. Jones was killed. Sharp
got away and came to this city,
bringing about $25,000 with him. This he
had ingeniously distributed over his person,
so that the money, although in gold, did not
jingle or rub together. He was ar
rested in his room, taken to Carson
Citv, tried, -convicted and sentenced
to 20 years' imprisonment. He served three
years, broke jail, and walked 40 miles with
a 30-pound iron shoe on his foot. This he
ifterward freed himself from and got away.
His liberty Tt as short, and be was soon re
turned. On August 1G he went through the iron
bars as though they had been paper, and
has not been seen since. Sharp is said to
have robbed over 30 stages.
A TOWN WITH A BOOH.
Guthrie, the 4-Montbs Infant, Hns AH Con
venlences of a metropolis.
Guthrie, I. T., August 24. Guthrie
was 4 months old yesterday. For an infant
of that age she will undoubtedly compare
with any town twice as old on earth. The
town site now comprises 16,000
acres, embracing East Guthrie, West
Guthrie, North Guthrie, Capital
Hill and Guthrie proper. Six
"wild cat" banks are doing aa immense
business here. Tbe Bank of Guthrie on tbe
evening of the 22d of April, when the
present city was but a few hours old, and at
a time when everything was in a turmoil
here, had in her vaults over $150,000. At
first this bank was on the open prairie, then
in a tent, and now in its neat building on
Oklahoma avenne, near Division street.
Four daily papers are published to-day in
Guthrie. The Guthrie News, Oklahoma
Capital, Daily State Herald and Daily Optic,
all of which are neat, respectable looking
sheets. The weekly editions are too nu
merous to mention. The city water works
have been in operation for three months.
The Guthrie Street Car and Electric Light
Company is a chartered concern, and will
have its different lines in operation soon.
Gambling has never been suppressed to
any extent, as yet, and one can easily wit
ness games of all kinds where from $000 to
t-,UW is at stake. Tbe great rush Is com
pletely over, though the different towns are
steadily growing into cities. The capital
will undoubtedly be located either at Guth
rie or Edmond.

Birmingham, Ala., August 24. Jake

arrived here at 7:30 a. m., and remained
until 3:45 p. si., when they left for Purvis,
Miss. Jake was in the best of spirits,
and talked freely to all callers. He said
his bond was already arranged, and he
would sign it and return at once to his'
home in Baltimore. He says he expects to
receive tbe same sentence as Sullivan, and
will appeal to the Supreme Court.
"Haveyou any plans for the future?"
Kilrain was asked.
"No, no definite plans, but I am anxious
for another fight with Sullivan, and will
challenge him if he will fight another fight.
If I can arrange an other fight with him,
we will go out west ; no more fighting in
Mississippi for me."
POISON IN A CISTERN.

Easton, August 24. Wednesday night
several members of the family of Uriah

A physician was hastily summoned, who

To-day Mr. Dean and one of his daughters

Supposed Drunken Man.
William Williams, of the Southside
patrol wagon, was arrested last night by
Detective McKelvey, charged with robbing
A sensation in local police circles was
sprung last night by a cleverly worked
plan of Inspector McKelvey, of the South
side and his assistants.
For some time past rumors have been rife
that somebody on that side of the river was
robbing prisoners. This conclusion was ar
rived at by complaints from time to time by
prisoners taken in the district that they
were short some money when they appeared
for the morning hearing. Inspector McKel
vey conceived a plan to catch the thief, and
his efforts cnlminated in the arrest last
night of William Williams, of patrol
wagon No. 7.
Williams has been on the wagon for the
past nine months. During that time the
complaints have been made. There are two
men on each wagon, besides tho driver, who
are supposed to look after the prisoners and
escort them to the lockup.. Inspector Mc
Kelvey noticed that the complaints of rob
beries invariably came from those arrested
fordrunkenness and always on the run on
which Williams and his companion made.
He caused Williams to be laid off for five
days on a flimsy charge and put another
man on the wagon.
HOW HE WAS CAUGHT.
About two weeks later he had Williams'
partner take a vacation for a week. Sev
eral arrests happened about this time, and,
Williams being on duty, the old cry of rob
bery was made by the prisoners.
To make doubly sure the Inspector then
played his last move in his game. He
secured a man named Nick Bendle to act
the part of a "drunk." Bendle was placed
pear South Thirty-fourth street in the vicin
ity of the Keystone Brewery. Captain -of
Police Stewart was to find him and call the
wagon. That part of the Inspector's plan
was carried out successfully, and the patrol
wagon with Williams in it came rolling
aiong in answer to Captain Stewart's call.
Bendle was placed in the wagon and lay
down on the floor, but the team had hardly
been turned for the lockup when, Bendle
claims, Williams began to search him.
This is customary, however, as the police
are supposed to look for firearms and knives
on the prisoners. Williams went through
Bendle's vest pocket, where he found $6 in
bills and $2 in silver. The paper had been
marked by having a corner torn off each of
tbe bills, and the silver coin had been
scratched. Williams took .it all, but in
stead of putting it in his pocket he lifted
up the wagon seat, which is on hinges, and
threw it underneath.
Arriving at the station the prisoner
signed to the Inspector that the scheme had
worked, but, to gain time and more infor
mation, Bendle was placed in a cell. There
he told his experiences.
BEHIND THE BARS.
Further testimony was not seeded, and
Inspector McKelvey walked out to the
front office and placed Williams under ar
rest. The money was found under the
wagon-seat. A charge of larceny from the
?erson was made against Williams by the
aspector, before Judge Brokaw, who was
also present, and Williams was placed be
hind tho bars in the Twenty-eighth ward
station In default of $1,000 bail.
Williams went on the force as turnkey at
tbe Central station under Mayor' Fulton,
ana pairouea a oeai under juayor jttcUalliu.
When Chief Brown took charge of the
police he was placed on patrol wagon No. 1,
and was subsequently transferred to the
Southside, where he has been for the past
nine months. His home is at No. 1802
Wharton street. He is married and has
HIS WIFE HORRIFIED.
The Cruel Fractlcnl Joko That a Young
Detroit Hatband Flayed.
A young married man who is a familiar
figure about tne City Hall went up to the
Canadian club house recently for a few
days' fishing, says the Detroit Tribune.
The second day after his arrival his wife
concluded that she would go up in the
steamer and join him. and accordingly noti
fied him of her intention. As tbe steamer
on which she took passage approached the
landing tne lady, accompanied by a nnmber
of intimate friends, eagerly scanned the
shore for a glimpse of his huge hat. Im
agine her feelings when she saw "Gus"
seated on a log beside a dashing-looking
famale. With one arm placed lovingly
around her waist "Gus" seemed to be utter
ly oblivious to the approach of the steamer
or the audible comments of the passengers
who were interested spectators.
"Is the man crazy or drunk?" gasped the
poor wife, dropping into a chair as limp as
a dishcloth. "For mercy's sake take me
home to mother.
iAt this juncture "Gus" lightly lifted up
his "companion" and tucking "her" under
hj arm walked toward the boat landing in
the most nonchalant manner imaginable.
"(She" was a copy of that exceedingly clever
lithographic print which ornaments every
tobacco store in town. It represents a gaudy
female mounted on a tobacco . cask which
) purports to be filled with a certain well-
jenown Drana 01 piug "cnewin'." Tbe fig
ure had been considerably improved upon
by "Gus," who had supplied it, with skirts
made of extra fine manilla paper.
Peace has been restored in the family.
A TRUTHFUL FORTUNE TELLER.
All His Statements Proven to bo Absolutely
From the Atlanta Journal. 1
There is a lady living in Athens who
vouches for the following queer story: A
gentleman living in Wisconsin mailed her
father a check for $300. The check was lost
en route. A week after the time he met a
professed fortune teller at the home of asick
man, and there the owner of the check was
voluntarily told by the soothsayer of his
Further, the fortune teller told the gentle
man that the check had been extracted from
tbe envelope, and that tbe empty envelope
would be received by him in a few days.
The thief was described'and the assurance
given that the money would be recovered
eventually, after much trouble. The for
tune teller had not been acquainted with the
loss by the gentleman making it.
The wizard also told his listener that two
unexpected visitors would be at his bouse in
a short while; that they were close relatives,
whom he had not seen in six years, and that
they would surprise him by their advent
-Next day the empty envelope came. Two
uncles from France arrived the next week.
The thief of the check was spotted in Wis
consin, and the money recovered, after much
time and trouble, though the thief etcaped
conviction. The Athens lady and her father
are now firm believers in the. fortune teller.

Gnlllotln of Electrical Executions
Palpable Reasons for His
, Late Ardnons Labors.
.-BrECTAL TII.EORAM TO Till DISPATCH.
New Yobk, Angust 24. Throughout 'the
discussion over the proposed killing ot
murderers in this State by electricity, the
name of the man who has figured most
prominently in it is that of Harold
P. Brown. It is Brown who has at
tended all the meetings of electrical
and medico-legal societies, and urged that
criminals should be killed by the alternat
ing current. It is Brown who has written
about it in the magazines and reviews rec
ommending death by the alternating electric
current as an extremely speedy one. It was
Brown, who conducted experiments upon
animals, ostensibly at his own expense and
out of the promptings of a benevolent heart,
each of which resulted in proving (to
Brown) that death by electricity with the
alternating current was marvelously quick
It is Brown's system of death by electric
ity that has finally been adopted by the
State authorities having the matter in
charge. Brown is tbe expert for the State
in the trial now pending, of the constitu
tionality ot the electrical execution law, and
the form of death by electricity as a pun
ishment for murderers will probably go
down to history stamped with Brown's
name, as that of Dr. Guillotin Is remem
bered in France.
During ail his talk and experiments,
srown bas pretended that he had no per
sonal interest or connection with any elec
tric lighting companies; that he was stir
ring in thematter simply as a scientific inves
tigator, as a humane man seeking the
quickest and most painless way of inflict
ing tbe death penalty upon criminals, as a
kindly public-spirited individual with a
fondness for dabbing in electricity.
A local paper will to-morrow print a long
charge that Brown has received money from
rival companies for his assiduity iu advo
cating the alternating current, and that be
secured the Westinghouse dynamos through
the Thompson-Houston Company for tbe
use of the State's executions.
IN A DEN OP COPPERHEAD SNAKES.
Unpleasant Experience of a Party of
Threshers Valuable Dos Bitten.
Moose's Hill, Ind., August 24. A
force of men were threshing farmer John
Hawkswell's grain to-day, and when
finishing a large stack of wheat sud
denly discovered a den of cop
perhead snakes among the rails
upon which the stack was built. The
place was literally alive with them. Little
ones wriggled about on the table of
the machine, having been carried up
on the bundles of wheat. When the
true nature .of tbe reptiles was
made known there was a lively stam
pede from the place. The men armed them
selves with hose and other handy uten
sils and waged a war of extermination. A
big copperhead fastened its fangs into the
nose of a valuable hunting dog and held on
until chopped to pieces. In a lew hours the
aog was sunering terribly with an enor
mously swollen head.
THE CHEROKEE LANDS.
A Prospect That Tber Will Soon bs Opened
Vikita, Ind. T., August 24. Judge A.
M. Wilson, of the Cherokee Commission,
was in the city en route to Fayetteville,
Ark. He stated to a reporter that
iu looking over the records of
the Cherokee Legislature for 1872 he found
an act authorizing the sale of the Cherokee
lands west of the Arkansas river. The act
was approved by tbe governing chief at the
time. The discovery of this act will
probably hasten the negotiations with the
Indians considerably, inasmuch as there is
no necessity now of submitting tbe matter
to the people for a vote, or of calling a ses
sion of the Legislature to authorize Chief
Mayes to make the sale.
Mr. Wilson's visit to the Chickasaws and
Arapahoes developed the fact that these
Indians are quite willing to sell their lands
at a fair price.
DIED FROM CHLOROFORM
Given to Facilitate the Removal of a Ring;
From a Swollen FIncer.
New York, August 24; The death of
Mrs. David Jasper, the sister-in-law of Pub
lic School Superintendent Jasper, of this
city, a few days ago at Bayonne, N. J., is
said to have been caused by the administra
tion of chloroform to facilitate the operation
of removing a gold ring from her finger,
which had swollen so as nearly to hide the
ring. Dr. Stiilwell, of Centerville. N. J.,
who assisted Dr. J. T. Field in removing
the ring, said that he was called in
about 2 o'clock on Friday morning,,
and that Mrs. Jasper at that time, ap-'
peared to be suffering only from the swollen
finger. She appeared to be all rightwhb.j
of her death on Sunday. He did not think
her death was due to any drugs, as she was
under the influence of chloroform onlv 1
hour and 30 minutes.

He could neither stand nor feed him

days by the. fourth boat he saw, which
omen was verified. For four days prior to
