convention is the nomination of Bigler for
State Treasurer -without opposition.
HabbisbTjeg, September 2. The State
Committee of the Democratic party of Penn
sylvania had an interesting meeting this
afternoon. The discussion was almost ex
clusively confined to a proposed revision of
the rules, contemplating a more effective or
ganization than has heretofore prevailed.
One of the changes thought necessary to in
sure a more efficient prosecution of Demo
cratic campaigns, involves the making of
Chairmen of county committees members
of the State Committee. It was also
suggested that the State be divided into sev-
eral districts, which shall be in charge of
persons elected by chairmen of county com
mittees, these men to be held responsible
for the campaign work in the territory un
der their control. These propositions found
great favor with the members of the State
Committee present, and a sub-committee
of 14 was appointed to put in
shape tbe proposed changes. The mem
bers of the committee are as follows:
Thomas McCullough and Adolph Eicholz,
Philadelphia; James S. Magee, Perry;
Congressman-elect Kerr, Clearfield; J. K.
Hockley, Cameron; Samuel W. "Wherry,
Cumberland; "William Brady Piatt,
Northumberland; V. J. Uhrich, Lebanon;
Henry Neator, York; Charles ChaUant,
Montour; Joseph "W. Merrey, Clinton;
'Daniel Quellman, Montgomery; James
Haley, Schuylkill; Horace "Walters,
ALL AT ONE TIME.
The sub-committee subsequently held a
meeting and decided to make a report to the
- State Committee to-morrow embodying its
views. Tt will "provide for the election of
county chairmen on the first Monday of
January, who are to serve one year and act
as members of the State Committee. There
was some opposition to the designation of a
time for choosing these officers, because it
would look too much like dictation to
county conventions and committees. Sheriff
Kxumbhaar and John Fow took grounds
against this branch of the suggested revision
of the rules, but their arguments proved of
The sub-committee agreed on also recom- .
mending for the consideration of the State
Committee at its meeting to-morrow a
change in the rules for the appointment of
sine assistant chairmen to the State Chair
man, who shall have charge of as many dis
tricts in the State, and be selected by the
County Chairmen in the districts to which
th'cy may be assigned. These assistant
chairmen shall constitute the State Execu
tive Committee. This is the idea of Mar
shall "Wright, one of the members of the
State Committee, amplified, he having re
cently submitted a plan for the selection of
four assistant chairmen to have charge of
the campaign in their districts, subject to
the general supervision of the State Chair
WILL BE ADOPTED.
The State Committee will no doubt adopt
the proposed changes and the convention on
"Wednesday will surelymakc them a part of
the rules for the government of the party.
There is a strong sentiment among tbe
Democrats here in favor of the election of
Eepresentative Samuel M. "Wherry, of Cum
berland county, as temporary chairman of
the convention. Bus recognized ability
and record in the Legislature, at
the recent session, it is argued, en
title him to the distinction. John
Fow is among those who think that "W.
Eush Gillan, of Chambersburg, would fill
the bill better, because "Wherry Toted in
favor of submitting the Prohibition amend
ment to the people. Ex-Senator John
Fertig, of Titusville, a well-known oil pro
ducer, is talked of for permanent chairman,
but his selection does not seem as sure as
that of Mr. "Wherry.
The platform will speak in no uncertain
sound on the question of revising the tariff,
if the sentiment of the convention is in ac
' cord- with that of the Democrats, on the.
ground that Cleveland's policy on the sub
ject is likely to receive a ringing indorse
ment The main features of the platform
likely to be adopted by the convention will
be in shape by to-morrow night, so as to
enable the delegates to have an early oppor
tunity to pass on them.
JImGLEB STILL LEADS.
There is no change in the State Treasurer
situation. No candidate is seriously
spoken-of except ex-Collector Bigler. One
of tbe silly rumors -is that ex-Governor
Paltison may loom np as a candidate in
-order, if elected, to make him an invincible
candidate for Governor next year.
The Executive Commitfte of the Demo
cratic societies of Pennsylvania met here
this afternoon, and decided to hold the next
convention in Philadelphia on October 15.
Each society will be entitled to one dele
gate, and an additional delegate for every
25 members. Chauncey P. Black presided
at the meeting. "While the convention of
societies is in progress Democratic meetings
will be held in various portions of Philadel
phia, and be addressed by eminent Demo
cratic orators. Governor Hill, of New
York, and Greene, of New Jersey, are among
those who will be invited to address the
meetings, and no effort will be spared to
make the assembling of societies a memora
ble occasion. -

DBIYEN TO SUICIDE.
A Boy Who Was Tnrred and Feathered

Him Were Without Avail,
IBFECIAITELEaEAM TO THE DtSrATCH.l
Tobonto, September 2. The details of
an incident tnat led to suicide during the
trip of the Northwest Transportation Com
pany's steamer Baltic from Owen Sound
have just been made public by the passen
gers. A young man, whose name is not re
vealed, but who was known as
Charley, shipped at Collingwood
as one of the crew. "When
the vessel was out of Collingwood about
two hours, he was accused of a certain
crime, and the names of persons on board
were given as authority for the
charge. "Without waiting to inves
tigate, some men, who had al
ready manifested their resentment toward
the alleged criminal, announced their in
tention to tar and feather him. They
stripped him of all his clothing. The men
who had been given as authority
meantime came forward and denied
having witnessed the act In ques
tion. Nevertheless, preparations for
tarring and feathering had been made, and
those engaged in the work, maddened by
liquor, determined to complete their work.
The cruel punishment went on. News
of the proceedings were carried
to the cabin, where many lady
passengers gave expression to their
leelings in hysterical cries. In response to
a protest from the passengers, the officers
finally commanded that the victim should
be put in the hold, and allowed
to dress. The boy was brought on
deck, and walked around aimlessly,
making motions before his face
with his hands and acting like one insane
for a iew moments, and moving toward the
stern of the boat in sight of several persons,
he jumped overboard. Little effort was
made to save the boy and he was drowned.

New York, September 2. Hydrophobia
undoubtedly caused the death of "William
H. Hoagland, of Newark, this morning.
Two months ago a dog ran into the store
and frightened the customers by its wild
actions. Hoagland started to drive it out
and tripped over a box. As he lay pros
trated on the floor the cur bit him on the
forehead. The skin was abraded merely,
and Hoagland did not believe he had been
bitten. He thought the dog scratched him
with its paw. Nevertheless, he called upon
a doctor and had caustic applied to the
scratches. He thought nothing more of the
matter, and was not in the slightest degree
frightened. Early last week he began to be
troubled by a soreness and contraction of
the throat. Saturday night he found great
difficulty in swallowing. During the night
the choking sensation in hii throat became
so pronounced that he couldn't sleep.

Atlantic City, September 2. The
barkentine Nicanor, Captain J. H. "Wolf,
from Montevideo for New York, stranded
on the south bar of the great Egg Harbor
Inlet at 1:30 this morning. The weather
was thick and smoky. There was a strong
inshore current and the ship was
considerably out of her course
when she struck the bar. There
were four passengers aboard: Mrs. F. A.
Prince, wife of a lormer resident of Port
land, Me., who has been a merohant at
Montevideo for the past 12 years, and her
son and daughter, and Mrs. Oaksmith, of
Brooklyn. They were asleep when the ves
sel stranded, and the creaking timbers,
flapping sails and the commotion on deck
caused them to jump from their beds in a
panic They rushed on deck and begged
to be put ashore in a life boat, but Cap
tain "Wolf finally persuaded them to go be
low, where the women prayed and sobbed
until morning. Guns were fired during the
night, but brought no response, and it was
daylight belore the life-saving crews of the
Longport and Ocean City stations were
sighted, coming to the ship's assistance.
The passengers were taken to Ocean City,
and resumed their trip to New York by rail
The Nicanor is now in charge of the At
lantio and Gulf Wrecking Company, who
have two steamers at work endeavoring to
get her off. She is hard on the bar but is
resting easy, and it is probable that she
will be floated at flood tide at 12 o'clock to
night. She is laden with a cargo of hides,
wool and hair, valued at $180,000, consigned
to New York agents at 13 State street, New
York. Messrs. Black Bros., of Halifax,
Nova Scotia, own a half interest and Cap
tain "Wolf the other half. She is an En
glish vessel, and is valned at 5125,000.
Revenue Inspector Captain James Tilton
has placed an officer in temporary charge of
her cargo pending developments.

carriages crowded with her own friends and
with the friends of her illustrious son, fol

ha'd said that his mother's remains should
be surrounded with all the tributes that

three carriages to carry the floral tributes to
the grave. The designs embraced all that
the florist's skill could produce, and the
choicest flowers were used in their construc

grief that had shaken him on the night of his
mother's death. His new silk hat was
neatly clad with a deep band of mourning.
The body was buried at Calvary Cemetery.

ISFZCIAI. TELEGRAM TO TUB DISPATCH.!
Philadelphia, September 2. Mrs. De
lia Stewart Parnell, the mother of the man
who has made the amelioration of. tbe con
dition of the Irish race his life work, is
slowly dying of old age and its attending
infirmities, in her home at Bordentown, N.
J, The doctors say her days are fast coming
to a close. Mrs. Parnell was found at her
home to-day in a very feeble condition,
and she forced a faint smile, when
informed of her rumored death. "No,
I am not dead, but dying," said she. "My
life is slowly but surely ebbing away, and I
realize that my days are numbered. As
they say out West, I am dying with my
boots on, and I will not give up until I
have to 'go to bed. My life has been one
long series of trials and tribulations, as far
back as I can remember, but during my
darkest hours I never thought of dying, for
I expected to live to see the Irish people on
their native heath led from under the bond
age they are suffering through England's
tyranny and oppression.
"WILL NOT SEE IRELAND FREE.
"ButT do not believe that I will see that
happy day, for, while the light of my ex
istence is flickering, the hope of Ireland's
immediate freedom is lessening day by day.
I am now in my 74th year, and, us my con
dition, mentally and physically, forces
itself upon my observation I often wonder I
have passed through so many trying ordeals
ana lived to such an age. My son has been
trampled upon in his views upon the rights
of the Irish people, ana my heart has bled
for every insult he has received.
"While he is suffering martyrdom abroad,
I am being trampled upon at home. This
man Stuart, whose estate joins mine, is try
ing to blast my reputation, for he has Insti
tuted a lawsuit against me for the recovery
of a sum of money which I don't owe him.
This has necessitated a great deal of labor
on my part, and has.ruined my constitution.
For over six months I have been hauling
over papers and documents which have been
accumulating in my effects for about 15
years. I have gone through everyone of
those papers three times, and my eyesight
has been ruined. I cannot see any more,
and although it is necessary for me to go
over the papers again I cannot -do it.
FEABS TOTAL BLINDNESS.
"The nerves of my eyes are burning and
I fear that within a short time I shall be
totally blind, if my eyes are not closed for
ever before that time comes. This must be
done, however, for there are certain papers
which must be found before the stand which
I have taken in this law suit may be vin
dicated." Mrs. Fox, of this city, who is closely re
lated to Mrs. Parnell, was with her to-"day,
having gone to Bordentown on the first
train this morning, on hearing of the rumor
of her death. Mrs. Parnell is being at
tended to by Dr. Ships, of Bordentown, who
visits her at frequent intervals, forhe knows
that her life is ebbing away, and may ter
minate at any moment.
Charles Stewart Parnell, her son, is ex-
Eected to arrive in this country as soon as
e can get away from Lcndon. He is only
waiting for a lull in the affairs of Irish
politics to come to his mother, with whose
condition he is familiar.
SHOT BY HER FATHER.
A Beer Drinking Frolic at Brndenviile Ends

rFPECIAL TELEGRAM TO TUB DISPATCH.!
Gbeensbubg, September 2. It is more
than probable that another murder has been
committed in this county. Mrs. William
Cyes, tbe wife of a miner living at Braden
ville, was fatally shot by her father, James
Jones, an old man about 65 years of age.
The shooting -occurred at the house of Mrs.
Cyes. A few of the neighbors gathered
there and some beer drinkintr was indulged
in. Old man Jones exhibited a revolver,
and was flourishing it around, when his
daughter interfered and wanted him to put
it away. A quarrel ensued and the revolver
was discharged in the hands ot Jones, the
ball takintr effect in Mrs. Cyes' left side, a
little below the heart.
Tlje woman fell to the floor. She was
living at a late hour to-night, but it is
thought she cannot live till morning.
Jones is under arrest, and will be brought
to this place in the morning. Mrs. Cyes
has several small children, and her husband
is wild with grief.

ISFEClAl, TELEGBAM TO THE'DISFAfClt.l
Chambebsbtbg, September 2. Judge
Stewart rendered an important decision
here to-day, in the matter of the motion of
Cyrus H. Gordon for a reconsideration"of
the action of the Court in refusing him a
wholesale liquor license in January last
The application was based on recent deci
sions of the Supreme Court in Philadelphia,
in the Pollard case and the case of the
Prospect Brewing Company. No remon
strance was filed against Gordon, nor was
any objection made by any one to the grant
ing of the license, but the Conrt refused the
license because he did not think the place
necessary for public accommodation.
Judge Stewart holds that the recent de
cisions did not decide that the lower court
has no discretion in the matter. He savs
that the act of March 22, 1867, places all
licenses on the same footing, and makes the
public, accommodation a necessary condi
tion for a license of any kind, except when
there is local legislation to the contrary,
and that the Court has the right to exercise
discretion in the matter. The motion, for a
reconsideration was refused.

want to see his face. I do not care whether
or not he knows the distance from Mars to

QT CABLE TO IBB DISPATCH.
London, September 2. Copyright.
London waked up this morning in anticipa
tion of pending danger, expecting that com
merqe would be at a standstill, the omnibus
and street car lines deserted and the streets
crowded with idle laborers. "When it was
learned that Burns had recalled the mani
festo calling out all trades unionists there
was a general sigh of relief. The twentieth
day of the great strike passed without riot
or disorder, although the dock directors still
refuse to concede the reasonable demand of
the strikers, and even resorted to-day to an
attempt to precipitate the disaster that all
London dreads. This morning 50 or 60
dockmen walked into the West India docks
and held a conference with a few" scabs who
were at work. Burns, in his speech at
Tower Hill, had earlier in the day declareU
that every man at work in the 'ddeks must
be cleared out, as he has said every day
since the strike began, always cautioning
the strikers that on no account was violence
to be offered. This morning Barns was par
ticularly earnest in his caution to the men to
avoid playing into the hands of the enemy
by using other than peaceful means to in
duce the scabs to leave work.
bitmoe of a biot.
Nevertheless, the dock directors no sooner
heard of the incident at the West India
docks than they sent a telegram to Chief-of-Police
Munro that "h riot had broken out
The police regard this as a deliberate effort
to create a disturbance, since the directors
are well aware that thefirst'outbreak of vio
lence would turn public opinion against the
strikers, and Munro sent a curt message to
Chairman Norwood that the police depart
ment would be responsible tor tbe public
Although Munro outwardly pretends to
believe there is no danger of disturbance,
he has taken a lesson from the dearly
bought experience of his predecessor, Sir
Charles Warren, who was caucbt napping
at the time of the Trafalgar Square out
break. The police are entirely prepared to
quell a riot so soon as it begins, and, as it
happens, the military is so disposed with re
lation to the docks that a mob ot almost any
size could be suppressed in an hour. Til
bury docks are close to Tilbury fort, where
several hundred men are under arms. The
Boyal Albert and Boyal Victoria docks are
directly opposite Woolwich Arsenal. The
St. Catherines and the East and West India
docks are right under tbe eaves of tbe tower.
SHIP OWTJEBS TBTT A COSIPBOMISE.
The most important incident of the strike
to-day was the visit of a deputation of ship
owners to the dock directors. These ship
owners, eight in number, comprised the
principal men of the most important lines,
and their object was to ask the directors to
allow them to employ their own m "n to load
and unload their ships, in which event they
were prepared to Errant the dock men the ad
vance they ask. -The directors implored the
ship owners, almost with tears in their eyes,
not to add to the difficulties of the situation
at this crisis by making proposals calculated
to revujuiiuujze iub snipping iraue ot Ajoa
don. The conference wassupposed to have
been a private one, but a reporter obtained
admission as a delegate and sold the news to
the evening papers. The conference was
adjourned until to-morrow, when the snip
owners will press their claim.
It costs about $10,000 per day to feed the
great army of strikers, but contributions
are coming in liberally. Still the amount
of suffering in the homes of tbe laborers is
fearful, and with all the relief organizations
that have been established tens of thousands
of men, women and children go to bed
hungry to-night. How much longer Burns
will be able to control 100,000 men made
savage by deprivation remains to be seen.
The dock directors have further complicated
matters by refusing to negotiate any further
with Burns and Fillett, his lieutenant, and
this move is also calculated to bring about
the disaster that Chairman Norwood is en
deavoring to precipitate, and all the rest of
London to prevent.

"Wilson, member of the XeeiIaturefree
Shelby county, and Jane Fox; of Cynthia,
the same county, were arrested this morning
by Deputy United States Marshal Conway,
and brought to this county, charged with
violating the pension laws. '
The affidavit upon which the arrest was
made contains some serious charges. Ac
cording to the statement contained therein,
Jennie Fox was at one time the wife of a
Union soldier named Oliver Snyder. Soon
alter the war Snyder died, and the womaa
obtained a pension, which she drew until
1875, when she married Daniel Fox. After
living with Fox a few years, and having
three children by him, he died, and then
the woman, it is alleged, set about to- have
her pension renewed.
It is charged that in order to recover her
pension, Wilson went before the Circuit
Court and made affidavit that thewoman
was never the wife of Fox, and thai the
three children were illegitimate. Upon the
facts set forth in the alleged false affidavit
the pension was renewed by the depart
ment, and Mrs. Fox received $1,200 back
Both parties this afterndon waived pre

St. Loots, September 2. The St. Louis

A SUNDAY LAW INOPERATIVE.
Kansas City Saloonkeepers Cannot Legally
Bave Their Licenses Revoked.
Kansas Citt, September 2. Judge Bo
laud, of the Police Court, and ex-officio
Justice of the Peace, to-day handed down
a decision of the test case made by the
saloon men of the validity of the penalty
clause of the Sunday law. The law is a
city measure, and it requires the trial judge
to revoke the license of every saloonkeeper
convicted of selling liquor on Sunday. A
city ordinance confers the power to revoke
licenses upon such judges.
Judge Boland, in his opinion, holds that
the ordinance, and therefore the law. is
unconstitutional, and dismissed the cases
of 15 saloon men chafged with violating the
law. The City Attorney will take an ap
peal. The decision is regarded with inter
est, for if it is sustained it will render the
law practically inoperative.

THE LITTLE MASCOT DYING.
George TJecbert Falls From a Grape Arbor
and Breaks Bis Skull.
tsrrcTAi. izutaoAM Tojrnx dispatch.
Philadelphia, September 2. Bright
eyed, red-headed little George Dechert, who
says he is 12 years old, but who does not
look more than 8,is dying in the Pennsylvania
Hospital from a fractured skull. Last Fri
day George toddled down Chestnut street in
the grasp of Beserve Officer Jones, and was
locked up in the Central station as a run
away. The lad was arrested at the in
stance of his mother. George attracted the
attention of spectators at the three Boston
Philadelphia games last week, by his antics
while caring for the bats and his peculiar
dress. "I was mascot fur the Bostons in
two games," he explained through the bars
of his cell, "but Thompson druv me out of
the business in the third game when he
knocked that home run with two men on
bases, and won the game for tbe Phillies."
George had a hearing on Saturday
morning, and was discharged by Magis
trate Smith on his promise to go home
and help his mother, onda keep away
from the baseball grounds in future.
George kept bis promise to keep away from
baseball, but this afternoon he was claying
with several boys in the rear of No. 207
Vine street, and boy-like, climbed upon a
grane arbor. Losing his footing, he fell
backward, and striking his head on the
eround, he was picked up insensible by his
little companions and taken home. It was
found that his skull was fractured, and an
ambulance was sent for and the little mas
cot was taken to the Pennsylvania Hospi
tal, where he now lies in an extremely criti
cal condition on a little cot, with his dis
tracted mother beside him.
