The Democratic conventions last night
were animated in the extreme. The Third
Legislative District Convention met in Se
lect Council chamber at 8 o'clock. John
Hidden called it to order. J. S. Barron
was announced on the roll as the delegate
from the Pint district of the Second ward.
M. J. Bafferty said he was informed
that Barron was a substitute. He declared
that things were crooked; that Michael
Connelly had been elected from that dis
trict and his name should be on the. roll..
Several others .talked at the same time as
Bafferty. The Chairman shouted for them
to take their seats and for a few moments
the room was in an uproar.
AN OMINOUS THBEAT.
Bafferty threatened to bolt, but finally
quieted down. "When his district was
called he "refused to present his credentials
until Connelly's name should be placed on
the list. .
"You can t beat us that way," he ex-J
claimed, and again he and half a dozen
others cried out about "roll fixing" and
The sixth district of the Sixth ward was
reached. The secretary announced no name

.A-lew ucondi later Haflerty was again on
his feet and yelled: "STou've got it all
your own way, ain't you? The only thing
we can do to get the best of it is to take it,
and we're coing to do it."
Others aided Bafferty in the cries, while
as many more shouted for them to sit
down. The Chairman threatened to call
the police, but the Bafferty faction were
defiant. Bafferty finally seized his hat,
exclaiming: "We'll get done up anyhow."
David Larkin pushed him back into his
seat, saying: "Sit down! if we'll
get done up."
A disturbance in the lobby attracted the
attention oi the delegates, and in the in
terim 'Squire Boyle and Mr. Bafferty were
nominated for temporary chairman. Baf
ferty withdrew his name and 'Squire Boyle
was chosen Chairman with a chorus of yells
THE BOLT OCCTTES.
At this the Bafferty, Larkin and the Big
ler faction bolted. As they went out the
door Bafferty yelled: ""We'll meet in Har
risbnrg." "Kick them out," screamed several" ot
their opponents, and amid howls of derision
and defiance from both sides, and insulting
gestures, and shaken fists, the bolters dis
appeared into the reception chamber to hold
a convention of their own.
As the door closed after them John En

After this the convention proceeded har
moniously. John Tobin and Lawrence
Ennis were then nominated and elected
delegates to the State Convention, receiving
a total of 19J4 votes each.
John Ennis moved that a vote of censure
be passed on the conduct of the gentlemen
who had acted so outrageously. The mo

Mellville, whom he represented, is a Be

seated. .Another row occurred when the
Seventh preciect of the-Fourteenth ward
was reached. James H. McQuaid pre
sented a credential as a substitute for James

several delegates were on their feet, and
stated that McQuaid lived in the Sixth pre

several others insisted that the delegate was
all right, but the opposition wanted him
This was objected to, and the excitement
that followed was intense. J. TV. Giles
called Mr. O'Leary a liar, and the latter re
turned the compliment with several ad

over to O'Leary's side of the room and it
looked threatening for a few minutes,
A FISTICUFF PBEVENTED.
Mr. Brennen pulled Giles away, sayingi
"You don't want to fight here and break

Mr. Giles No, I don't want to fight for

The matter was quieted down and after
the roll was completed Chairman Mullen
called for nominations for temporary chair
man. Mr. O'Leary and Mr. Foley, were
both nominated. The vote stood 54J to 34
in favor of Patrick Foley. Mr. O'Leary
was greeted with applause when, as his
name was called, he voted for Mr. Foley.
William Walls, of the Twenty-seventh
ward; P. Foley, of the Thirty-sixth; Mark
Schmid, John Dillemuth, of the Seven
teenthj'W. J. Brennen, of the Fourteenth,
and M. C. Dwyer,of the Eighteenth, were
nominated for delegates to the State con
vention as representatives of the Foley
faction. Mr. O'Leary made a tour of the
room, whispering in the ears of some of his
delegates. His side of the house refused to
nominate delegates, and the nominations
were closed. The vote was then taken, many
of the O'Leary delegates declining to vote.
The ballot resulted as follows: "William
Walls, 54 votes; P. Foley, 55; Mark

THE SECOND BOLT.
There were 89 votes in the convention,
and as it only required 44 to elect, the en
tire six wete declared elected, and the con
vention adjourned. The Foley delegates
left the room immediately, but the others
Mr. O'Leary charged the Foley people
with fraud; they had packed the roll by
bringing in people who were never elected,
and he was opposed to that kind of business.
He displayed a small ticket bearing the
names of six persons whom he desired to
have elected as representative delegates
from the Fifth District One of the six,
James A. Clark, was called to the chair,'
and without any further ceremony the
ticket was nominated and elected, by accla

delegates were retiring someone whose name
could not be learned, stopped Michael Baf
ferty at the door and wanted to fight him,
but Mr. Bafferty was notin a fighting mood,
and the trouble was allowed to blow over.
AN INCIPIENT BOTV.
, In the Second Legislative Convention, at
Select Council chamber, Allegheny, the
evening was made lively by a row over cre
dentials. Mr. Sullivan had brought for
ward the credentials of Abe Miller, saying
he had been elected tromv the First district
of the Fifth ward. The Secretaries an
nounced that it was already represented by
Alfred Ober. Mr. Dan Haggerty, of the
Second ward, jumped to his feet and accused
Mr. Sullivan of fixing the delegate after the
meeting convened. Mr. Sullivan did not
appear to understand and Mr. Haggerty
appealed to Chairman T. D. Casev. He
told Mr. Haggerty to sit down, that he was
running that convention. Mr. .Haggerty
did not comply at once and the chair said
if the gentleman would not sit down "he
would be compelled to insult him." He
did not have any axes to grind and would
not brook an attack from Mr. Haggertv or
Mr. Sullivan in the meantime had
learned that the First district of the Fifth
ward was represented. "While the Chairman
and Mr. Haggerty were having their little
war he had slipped up to the Secretaries'
desk and rectified his "mistake," changing
the credentials of Abe Miller to the Fifth
district of the Sixth ward, which had not
before been represented.
Mr. Sullivan nominated Mr. Hughes, of
the Ninth ward, for State delegate. The
other nominees were- Edwin Culp. of the
Sixth ward, Samuel Hawthorne and J. K.
Jacobs. On the ballot Mr. Hughes got 14
votes, Culp 13, Hawthorne 10 and Jacobs 9.
The Chairman then announced the election
of Messrs. Hughes and Culp and the con
vention adjourned without giving them any

The First Legislative Convention in Alle
gheny was very much of a Bigler gathering.
Twenty-six of the 36 delegates in the dis
trict were present, and they got down to
business with John Huckenstein as Chair
man. Geo. A. Koehler and Edward G.
Lang were elected State delegates. Mr. Bob
iuson and another delegate wanted a roll
call with the idea of voting for Mr. Huck
enstein, but they got no encouragement, and
the nominees were elected by acclamation.
Mr. Huckenstein read the following resolu

The house of Brennen was formed at
midnight at the rooms of the County Dem

discussing the bolt of the O'Leary contin

Mr. Timothy O'Leary was found com
fortably ensconced at the Bandall Club
House. He said: "We claim the First,

were denied the right to see the roll of dele
gates which was fixe' up by heelers and
lunch-route hangers-on to suit the anti
Bigler crowd. The press was also denied
access to the roll, several reporters having
tried to see it and failed."
Mr. O'Leary called on a number of
people to substantiate what he as
serted, and they did it with a will, one
man stating4 that delegates who had properly
authenticated credentials could not get their
names placed on the roll.
The situation "at 12 o'clock, last
night was sufficiently exciting to
satisfy the most exacting disciple
ot political "harmony." The O'Leary side
contended that under the rules 24 hours' no
tice of contest should be given, and that the
rule was ignored and that Brennsn-Foley
delegates weie admitted to represent dis
tricts in which they did not live.

(SPECIAL TK.IOBXM TO THE DISFlTCnf-1
Atlantic Citt. K". J.. August 27.-
The horrible stabbing of Mrs. Mary
nelly, in the Noll cottage, on Tennesseeave-
nne, near midday yesterday, by her misti
the wife of Bobert B. Hamilton, has con
verted this place from & merry sumnier
resort into a city of gossip. Little by litAle
the facts have leaked out and what a
npirprl stratum nbnnt the affair last nigtflt
and this morning is now clear enough.
The fact that Mrs. Hamilton made a mu
derous assault upon- her servant has n
been changed, but the intimation that b
fore doing so she had tried to stab her
band, and that her attack was the sole n
suit of an ungovernable temper and
nave been proven lalse.
Mrs. Bnpp, the proprietress of the Noll
cottage, said that tne lamuy was oruen,
and well behaved. Mrs. Hamilton was
CAEEFCTi XK HEB ACTIONS
and made no freer with men to whom
she was introduced to than, is customary
among the women here. The statements
that she was over gay and was given to
flirting and drinking are said to be false.
Her travels through California had not
benefited her health, and she lost so much
flesh that her dresses fitted her badly when
she came here. She is fond of dress, and so
she sent to Mrs. Frederick J. Swinton, ot
111 West Fifteenth street, New York, to
come here and overhaul her wardrobe. Mrs.
Swinton arrived about four weeks ago, and
put up at the Verona.
It is certain that Mr. Hamilton's friends
did not care much for his wife, and it is
also certain that the apparent impossibility
ot his ever being able to introduce her into
the. society to wljich he had been ac
customed DBOVE HIM-PBOSI THE CrTTT
and sent him traveling through the country.
General Schuyler Hamilton, the father of
Bobert Bav Hamilton, was dissatisfied with
the life his son was leading, and had fre
quently written to him to come home and
Bettle do-vn. The General was so much in
terested in this that on August 18 be came
here and stopped at the Chalfonte. On the
evening of that day he called at the Noll
cottage and had a long interview with his
son and his daughter-in-law. He urged
them to return to New York and live there
properly and to stop scampering about the
country. The young couple finally con
sented to do so, and they slowly began pre
parations for a move to-Aew xorK,

trouble. Mary came in, angrier than either
her master or mistrers, because she had
been disturbed. She scolded a good deal.
Vind was finally ordered out of the room.
She was not seen again tor two and a hall
hours, and shortly before 9 o'clock Mrs.
Hamilton accused her ot neglecting the
baby. The nurse retorted, and the quarrel

the General in order to have him act as
a peacemaker but she finally gave up this
idea and sent for Mrg..Swinton instead.
Mrs. Swinton remained with the couple for
over an hour, and when she left Mrs. Ham

they were fondling each other. .
Shortly alter this, wnue Mr. and MrsJ

Shamokih-, August 27. A man was shot
in the small mining town of Gilberton sev-
r eral nights ago while burglarizing a store
ana was taken to the Fottsvillejau wnere
he is now dying from the wound. Last
evening he said his name was Tom Nanke
vilfe, and that he bad a brother and a
cousin living here. The latter was found
after a long search living in the suburbs of
this city, and was informed that Narikeville
sept his dying love to all his relations and
friends. Leonard Bogers, the cousin was
astounded upon learning of the shooting as
he thought Nanke'ville was dead.
A remarkably romantic tale was un
earthed. Twenty-one years ago the dying

TVjASHINGTON, August 27. If
official rumor which has reached the State
Department is confirmed, it will give an al
most comical effect to the angry remon
strance of the Canadians against the opera
tions of the revenue cutter Bush in Bebr

steam sealer Black Diamond, which was
the; first vessel seized this year, is owned in
a lirge degree, if not entirely, by citizens of
thi United States.
This information came to the Department
incidentally while a quiet inquiry was

that the United States' Vice Consul, at Vic

colonial vessels illegally sealing in Bear

Dayton, August 27. The various Con

meetings, and everything is being put in

at 10' o'clock to-morrow morning. Com

work of the convention attended to, so after
the report to the convention it can get down
to business in a short time, make the nomi
nation and allow the delegates to get home
on the evening trains.
All minor offices are lost sight of in the
fight over the Governorship. Hon. James
E. Campbell, of Butler county, is still be
lieved to be in the lead, and his friends are
claiming his nomination on the first ballot,
ami the betting is all that way. Odds of
$100 to $75 are being offered" on Campbell
and few takers. Lawrence Neal is making

tariff reform, his friends, and delegates

On this issue, which they claim is the
ever living and great principle of De
mocracy, they expect to win. Virgil P.
Kline, of Cleveland, is not cutting much of
a figure in the fight, but he will have more
than 100 votes and his friends claim that he
holds the balance of power, and in case of a
long fight between Campbell and Neal be
will be nominated as a compromise candi
date. Neal claims the nomination on the second
ballot by 87 majority. The hotels and
boarding houses are crowded and accommo

There will be several seconds Ito each-, and
the orators are getting ready to do some
heavy talking to-morrow.
JHARTER STILL THEBE.
The Campbell men have withdrawn their
opposition to M. D. Harter, and he will be
Chairman of the convention. Of the candi
dates for the other places on the. ticket, all
are now here. Hon. Jesse M.. Lewis, of
TJrbana, is doing some lively hustling, and
the fact that Milton Salter, geographic
ally, is too near Campbell, will be apt to
give Lewis the nomination for Attorney
General. Hon. H. M. Adams, of Seneca,
also mentioned as a candidate, is doing very
little, it any, work to get the nomination.

the saloons are the ones that ought to pay
me for going over the falls. The railroads

they tell me, who enme on such excursions

to be made in about seven hours.

Causes a Blunder That Was at the Same Time Serbia
Mr. Miller, of Michigan, went to New
Mexico for his health. He got so much of
it that bis personal appearance did not tally
with the description on his railroad ticket
He was bounced from the train and now
sues for $10, 000.
Chicago, August 27. The Atlantic and.
Pacific Bailway Company secured the re
moval of a peculiar suit against it from the
State to the Federal Court to-day. The
, case is one in which John H. Miller, a resi
dent of Michigan, seeks (10,000 damages
from the Atlantic and Pacific Bailway
Company for being thrown from one of its
trains while en route north from Albu
querque, N. M.
Mr. Miller left his home in Michigan to
take a southwestern trip. He started in the
spring, baying a through ticket to Albu
querque and return. He calculated to
spend the summer in the Southwest and to
return in the fall. When he purchased his
ticket he received in exchange for his good
round sum of money a piece of pasteboard
about a yard long. There are not many
tickets like it sold. It was a first-class lim
ited ticket, good from April to November.
MILLEB IN THE SFBINO.
To that extent it was not different from
any other ticket, but the respect in which it
did differ in a very material way from 'the
ordinary ticket was in a description of Mr.
Miller. It was a non-transferable, arrange
ment, and in order to make certain of the,
identity of the owner it had written in the
last coupon a full description of the pur
chaser. This was to prevent Miller assign
ing it to somebody else.
It described Miller as tall, slim, black
mustache, etc, etc. Anybody other than
Miller, unless he was a "dead ringer" for
him, could never have used it without being
caught. Mr. Miller got along very well
going out to New Mexico. He went there
in April. He boucht a broncho and a cow
boy outfit and for six months he breathed
the free air of the plains.
Every day he gained flesh. He let his
beard and his hair grow. In November,
Miller, who had gone West for health,
found that he had it in large hnnks. He
felt strong enough to come back and take
an average-sized house a mile or two.
MILLEB IN THE FALL.
He had gained a hundred pounds, and
thought it was time to return to his effete
home in Michigan and go to work again.
He took the train of the Atlantic and
Pacific at Albuquerque, and at Barstow he
fished out his ticket and handed it to the
conductor. Before punching the conductor
"read with ease," as Mark Twain was ad
Vised to. He went clear through the de
scription ot Miller, which said he was slim
and wore only a mustache. Then he
looked at MillerV200 pounds' of flesh, and
"sized up" his full, beard of six months'
growth, and tbe long brown hair which
dropped in curls to Mr. Miller's stout
"Is your name John H. Miller?" the con
"That's what it is," was Mr. Miller's re
sponse. "Well, you ain't the man that's described
Then it dawned upon Mr. Miller that he
should have remained thin and shonld have
discouraged the growth of anything bnt a
black mustache. Here was a dilemma, in
deed. He undertook to explain, but some
how or other he did not betray the amouut
of confidence of his own identity necessary
to satisfy the conductor. '
IN A rBEDICASIENT.
He had neglected to send home for money
in tbe hurry of leaving, and the prospect of
being put off at Barstow made him turn
white and shake as if he had the ague. The
conductor took this as a sign that he was a
fraud, who had bought the rightful owner's
ticket at a scalper's for a third of its price,
and in a jiffy Mr. Miller was groveling in
the ashes and cinders on the track, while the
train shot away with his confiscated ticket
in the conductor's fisU
That conductor got very little credit for
his zealous care of the company's interests.
It is even believed he was fired when Mr.
Miller got back home, and sued the com
pany for $10,000. The suit was removed to
tbe Federal Court under a recent act of Con
gress, and Mr. Miller's case will be tried
there instead of in the State Court.
