Mnrat Halstead's retraction of his charges
against James Campbell has caused a sen
sation in Ohio politics. The Democratic
leaders claim that the incident trill result
greatly to their advantage, hut prominent
Republicans do not beliere that it will
cause the loss of the State. Mr. Halstead's
mistake, however, is thought to hare seri
ously impaired his own Senatorial prospects.
rEFECIAL TELXQBAX TO THE DISPATCH.1
Coltjmbus, October ,11. The political
sensation of to-day in Ohio was the personal
card of Mnrat Halstead in the Cincinnati
Commercial Gazette in which he retracts all
he has said about James E. Campbell, the
Democratic candidate for Governor, in con
nection with the ballot-box scheme, for
which he introduced a bill in Congress.
The Bepnblicans have been placing great
store upon the developments in regard to
the ballot-box trust, and there is no doubt
they have gained headway in the campaign
and were swimming on to victory.
The long delay of Mr. Campbell in mak
ing answer to the arraignment of Halstead
and Foraker led many to believe that he
was guilty, as charged, and that he had no
reasonable excuse to offer that he was not
interested in the results which would have
accrued from the bill had it become a law.
IT YTAS THE ONE ISSUE.
All other issues in the campaign so far as
the Republican side was concerned, have
succumbed to this one thing, and the cam
paign has become personal. It is little
wonder that the Bepnblicans were sorely
disappointed when they read the card of
Halstead this morning. They had little, if
anything, to say as to what the result would
be, but the Democrats were jubilant and as
well pleased as if they were receiving the
returns from an assnred victory.
James E. Real, Chairman of the Demo
cratic Committee, said: "There is now no
question about an overwhelming Demo
cratic victory this fall. Ton may say that
we will carry both the State ticket and the
Legislature. There was some little doubt
about the result until now. The Bepnb
licans have removed a load from our shoul
ders which, it is needless for me to state,
was doing as a great deal of harm. That
was the only thing they had against the
personal character and record of Campbell,
and now it is not only wiped away, as it
should have been a week or more ago, but
BECEIVES THE BENEFIT
of the influence created by an effort to
traduce his character. The effect of the de
nial on the part of Halstead, who made the
charge, cannot be otherwise than of great
benefit, and has made sure that which some
weeks ago was in an experimental stage, so
far as the election of the Democratic ticket
Governor Foraker and Chairman Conger,
of the Republican Committee, were not in
the city to-day, but a consultation with
other members and prominent Bepnblicans
discloses that they have some fears of the
result, and they place various estimates on
the importance of the denial.
All the Bepublicans are denouncing Hal
j. stead lor having brought the subject out
without having the facts with which to
back up his statements, and claim that he
has done the party more damage by his
card than all the good he can do in the
entire campaign. They claim that if the
ballot box scheme had not been heard of the
Bepublicans could have gotten along just
as well, and would have won a victory
which is now in doubt.
Two members of the Republican Commit
tee who were seen to-night express them
selves to the foregoing effect, yet they do not
admit that the retraction will have the force
and effect which is placed upon it by the
Democratic leaders. On the other hand,
they claim there is a possibility of the Dem
'y ocrats making so much out of the circum
stance that they will arouse the Bepublicans
and get out the full vote, which will surely
result in aBepublican victory, for the reason
there are more Bepublicans than Democrats
in the State. If Halstead ever had any
r chance for the Senate, the muss into which
, he has led the Bepublicans has surely killed
- . bis prospects in that direction.
There are a great many rumors as to who
misled Halstead in the publication and im-
' posed the story upon him, and there is now
a great demand for names and the facts in
- the case. There is even a suggestion that
he was imposed upon by some one who is
intimate with the Republican management,
and that it was done for a purpose, but that
- it was not intended that it should have been
exposed until later in the campaign.
A rtAJT THAT FAILED.
In fact it was the design that the ballot
' box scheme should have been held, until a
few days before the election when the Dem
ocrats would not have time to make answer
and explanation. It is learned, indirectly,
that -the alleged contract which Halstead
has was a traced copy of the original one in
"Washington made by some page boys in the
It is claimed that the names on the sheet
from which the fac-similes were made were
written by page boys and without the

Jndge George K. Nash, a member of the

that the GoVernor in his speech on the bal

contract part of the scheme and use the
name of Mr. Campbell in that connection.
All he did charge was that Mr. Campbell
had introduced the bill in Congress looking
to a trust, and there would have been one

that Mr. Campbell was interested financial

It will require several days for the Re

and Republicans in this city that it

Democrats for success, though they differ as
to the extent of the influence. The Repub
licans point to the fairness which was ex

A PROBLEM EOR HDL
Honest John Sherman, nt a Non-Political
Reception, Won't Say Who Will be
Governor He la Warmly
rsrcciAi. telegram to the dxspatco.1
Findlat, O., October 11. One of the
brightest flowers that ever grew over the
garden wall of politics was gathered here
to-night in the non-political reception ac
corded Senator John Sherman by the citi
zens of Findmy. The distinguished states
man reached this city this morning to look
after several matters of a personal character,
connected with his property possessions
here, and it was at once determined by the
people, irrespective of party, to give the
Senator an impromptu reception. To that
end no less than 1,500 met in front of the
Jay House, where Mr. Sherman was stop
ping. Shortlv after 7 o'clock the reception was
opened "by band music, when the senior
Senator, appearing on the balcony, was in
troduced by Judge Burket in a happy and
In response, Senator Sherman expressed
in words warmer than usual, his deep ap
preciation of the honor. He said that in
the heat and fury of our political campaigns
it was a rare pleasure to meet fellow-citizens
who did not expect that the sin. of omission
and commission of their opponents should
be held up to the garish light of public dis
cussion, but that as friends and neighbors
they met to greet each other and exchange
expressions of good feelings, while politics,
in which there was so much of bitterness,
was for the time forgotten.
The Senator then referred to his Euro
pean trip and his observations while abroad,
and closed by paying a high tribute to the
advancement and progressiveness of Find
lav, and predicted that, within ten years,
this would be a city of 100,000 inhabitants.
As an earnest of this faith he said that his
study and observation had convinced him
that natural gas was practically inexhaus
tible, and that, while the wells might ex
haust, the supply in nature's laboratory
would be sufficient for generations yet un
born, and that Findlay, and other cities
likewise favored with this fuel, wonld go on
year after year achieving new triumphs of
an industnal'character, until they would be
come the wonders of the world.
As he finished, and was about to step
from the balcony, some one in the crowd
"Who is going to be elected Governor?"
To this the Senator replied: "While this
is not a political meeting, yet I will admit
that I have a well-grouuded opinion on this
subject; but, for fear you will betray me, I
will not express iti"
An effort was made to interview the Sen
ator on political topics, but he refused to
talk, as he was "not here as a politician"
and did not think the occasion a proper one
on which to discuss such matters. He, how
ever, admitted in private that the Repub
lican outlook was most excellent, and that
he would make a number of speeches between
now and the election. Senator Sherman is
looking well, and said that he was never in
better voice than at present. He returned
home on the night train.

Democratic candidate for Governor. No
special attempts were made by Mr. Camp
bell to reply directly to the speech of
Senator Sherman at the same place. Mr.
Campbell devoted his speech to the tariff
question, on which he said it was not the
tariff that the Democratic party opposed,
but what the Democratic party opposed was
the glaring inequalities of the tariff as it
now exists. What the party aimed at was a
reform of the present tariff.

rSPICIAX. TELEGRAM TO TBE DISPATCH.
New Yobk, October 1L The agents of
fhe big ship City of New York have turned
over to professionals the job of pulling her
offtheendof Romer shoal. Thirteen tugs
got at her again at 7 o'clock this morning.
Four hawsers were got out over the stern of
the City of New York, and another was
carried out to a Eedge anchor. When the
tugs pulled, the big ship on her side hove
taunt on the anchor.
The rugs were hitched onto the cable's
tandem, with the biggest ones for wheelers.
Captain John Shackford, the marine su
perintendent of tbe Inman Company, held
the ribbons aboard the tug Crawford. Whyi
he snapped the whip everything started
except the coach. The tugs foamed and
fretted, but kept at it until 9-30. The tide
was ebb then, and it was no use to work
again until night
A couple of lighters meanwhile brought
about 600 tons of cargo up to this city and
more was sent down to help lighten her for
the evening. The steerage passengers got
to Castle Garden about 2 P. M. The tugs
scattered and the company turned the whole
job over to the Merrit Wrecking Company.
The Inman people had held off until thev
discovered that a ship and cargo that weigh
15,000 tons is a pretty big plaything. Mr.
Wright said in the afternoon:
She is all right; but, if the cyclone which is
rolling up the coast gets here before they get
hawsers and anchors oat, she is likely to have
a hard time of it If everything is ready a mod
est storm is just what is wanted to wriggle her
oat. She lies just on the eastern end of the
dry Romer shoal, headed west-southwest. She
is aground from her main mast aft, with about
19 feet of water about her, A ship's length
ahead of her there is 4S feet of water, and tbe
same distance aft about 50 feot. There is just
about enough mnd to hold her, and under that
hard saud and rocks.
The Fletcher and Moore returned to her on
Thursday night and took off the steerage pas
sengers and their baggage. There were 386 of
them. It was past midnight when they left
the steamer, and Castle Garden was closed.
The passengers were taken to the Red Star
wharf in Jersey City and fed and housed
there. They got to Castle Garden about 2
o'clock this afternoon, and by night they

Pubtis, Miss., October 11. A. F. Matt,
with a string of aliases a yard long, who
has been working the pension racket on

for parts unknown after his nefarious
scheme came to light Matt carried a
bundle of pension papers and would take
each negro's address that wanted a pension,
provided the applicant paid $5.
Every darkey that could manage to raise
the amount came forward with the money,
and some went so far as to sell their house
hold goods to raise the cash. His operations
extended through a section well filled with
negroes, and the amount he secured was
large. The scoundrel wasdetected by some
of the negroes showing their receipts to their
white neighbors, who saw through the

The news that Matt was an impostor soon
spread among his dupes, and tley are look

Mayor Grant Proposes to Tfce Prompt Action Afcalnst
Another lineman has met death on the
fatal New Yort wires under peculiarly hor
rible circumstances. His body remained
hanging to the deadly conductors for some
time before anyone could be found to re
move it Some action in the matter will be
taken by Mayor Grant to-day.
New Yoke, October 11. Seven times in
quick succession has the deadly electric cur
rent startled the community. John Feeks,
a lineman of the Western Union Telegraph
Company, was killed this afternoon by
coming in contact with the network of
electric light wire3 at the corner of Center
and Chambers streets. For 15 minutes tbe
flames could be seen burning the man's face,
and at the end of that time half of it had
been burned away.
Another lineman jumped from a pole and
ran away. He was evidently badly scared
and no one tried to stop him. As Feeks
fell he struck on one of the cross arms with
one hand on the electric light wire. The
current was thus completed. In an instant
tbe body stiffened, the head and arm raised.
There was no movement. The man was
dead. His hand and head were elevated as
though he had
SUrFEBED 2IOBTAL AGONY.
In an instant the flesh was bnrned and
tnrned red. A horrible fungus appeared on
his throat and wrist He had not taken his
rubber gloves with him. and this oversight
lea to his aeatn. a or nait an hour crowns
poured in from surrounding streets. For
more than half an hour the stiffened body
remained in the net work of wires, while
the crowds looked on with horror-stricken
For 15 minutes street cars forced their
way through the dense mass of people; then
a cordon of police appeared and all travel
was stopped. The horrified multitude gazed
at the body in the network of wires. The
face and hands deepened into a livid hue.
A ladder was taken from the engine house
and elevated to tho fatal network. The
ladder remained there 15 minutes before a
man brave enough to ascend it was found.
When he appeared he had his hands en
cased in long rubber gloves. He carried an
immense pair of shears. Slowly he ascended
the ladder, carefully he picked his way
through the wires until he reached the
fourth crosspiece. Then he threw his leg
over the crosspiece below. His leg shook
like a man with the ague.
A PBUDENT CEOWD.
He snipped a wire near the dead man's
face. As the wire fell the crowd below
scattered. In an instant sparks of fire, fol
lowed by puffs 6f smoke, flew from the dead
man's nose and from his calcined wrists.
.second wire fell curLrig. among its fel-.
lows along Chambers street .
A third wire was cut. The end flew from
the nest to the northwest corner of Chambers
and Center streets, striking a policeman
upon the head and curling him up with
pain. The fourth wire fell to the street
Then the livid hand dropped, the foot rest
ing trpon another wire. Another snip and
the elevated head fell limp and lileless,
exposing the ghastly features to those upon
the east side of Center street
Before the cutting a rope had been passed
over a crosspiece and carefully knotted
around the dead man's body. Meanwhile a
second volunteer had mounted to the cross
piece, and with his assistance the body was
lowered to the ground. The crowd was
convulsed with horror. A smell of burnt
flesh pervaded the air.
A MOST HOBRIBLE SIGHT.
The whole side of the man's face was
bnrned away, exposing his teeth. His
wrist was cut to the bone, and the blood
was dripping from both face and wrist
Coroner Schultz took charge of the body.
Mayor Grant gave immediate instructions
to have the particular wire or wires that
had caused the man's death cut, and to no
tify the company operating the wires. This
was a difficult thing to do, inasmuch as no
one seemed to know what company owned
the death-dealing fluid conductors.
There is no truth in the statement that
Mayor Grant ordered all the electric lights
cut off to-nigbt To-morrow morning,
though, something will drop, but it will not
be a lineman's body. Neither the Brush
Company nor the United States Illuminat
ing Company had heard from the Mayor.
The Brush Company will obey the order,
but the United States Company says it will
fight. Superintendent Hoag, of the Man
hattan Electric Light Company, said the
Mayor had sent him a communication or
dering the Manhattan Company to stop
work on Grand street and also' Twenty
"That order," continued Mr. Hoag, "was
immediately complied with."

Roads at If.
rSPECTAL TELEOUAM TO TUX DISPATCH.!
Chicago, October 11. There are serious
charges being made that the eastern pas
senger rates are being extensively manipu
lated. It is only two days since the Central
Traffic- Association was obliged to take
measures to stop the practice common with
several eastbound lines of influence, by
allowing passengers holding second-class
tickets to occupy first-class or sleeping
cars. Now it is charged that, under
cover of the Knights Templar conclave
at Washington there has been manipula
tion by nearly everybody. The Knights
Templar excursion tickets were only to be
sold until October 6; but it is charged that
the Michigan Central, Chicago and Atlantic
and Baltimore and Ohio sold them until
October 9, contrary to agreement It is
further charged in New York that large
blocks of Knights Templar . tickets have
been placed in the hands of Eastern brokers
hy the railroad companies who desired to
manipulate the market in their own favor.
This was worked by the railroads selling to
tbe brokers only the returning coupons, the
east-bound coupons having been cut off by
the railroad company.
Even the Pennsylvania, which has the
reputation of being the strictest of all the
roads, is charged with being in the same
boat as the other lines. Color to this was
given by a communication received from
the Pennsylvania by the Western Passen
ger Association to-day, which stated that
such a large number of Knights Templar
excursion tickets had been issued over their
line that it was simply impossible for them
to enforce the rule regarding re-signing the
tickets and re-stamping them before they
would be good for return passes. Tbe
Pennsylvania accordingly has decided
to waive all ironclad clauses in
Knights Templar tickets and honor
tbe tickets, whether presented by the
original purchaser or someone, else, and re
quested its Western connections to take
similar action, and other Chicago lines
have followed suit This is a very remark
able thing for the Pennsylvania to do, and
it is construed that the Pennsylvania is
working with the scalpers.

Canadian Government Officials Decline to
Attend a Bnnquet at Niagara Falls.
New Yoek, October 11. The Sunday
dinner which Erastus Wiman is to give to
the delegates to fhe International Congress
at Niagara Falls October 13 is exciting a
good deal of (criticism. The Mayor of
Toronto, having been invited to attend, has
replied that he cannot attend banquets on a
sacred day. Members of the Government
also decline to participate on this account,
notwithstanding the fact that this is the
only evening on which a visit of the dele
gates to Canada could be secured. Prof.
Goldwin Smith, Sir Bichard Cartwright,
John Charlton, M. P., and others have ac
cepted invitations. A delegation from the
Bochester Chamber of Commerce and repre
sentatives from Detroit will be present
The dinner will be simply a private affair,
at which there will be no speeches or other
formality. Colonel Czowski, President of
the Canadian Reservation at the Falls, has
written that the entire park will be tree to
JEFF DATIS AND W0LSELET.
These Two Men, Though Enemies, Will Meet
at Lee's Monument.
rSPECTAL TELEOBAU TO THE DISPATCH. J
Bichmond, October 11. Governor' Lee
has a letter from Lord Wolseley saying he
will attend the unveiling' of the monument
to Hon. Bobert E. Lee in this city early .in
December, unless1 something unforeseen
prevents. This is in response.to an invita
tion. Jefferson Davis will also attend.
It is well known that no good feeling
exists between Mr. Davis and Lord
Wolseley, owing to the latter's criticisms of
the ex-Confederate President's administra
tion and Mr. Davis' caustic reply; but, since
the English General's warm praise of the
Southern Genera), has attracted so much at
tention, the Committee of Invitation desired
his presence on the occasion, which is ex
pected to be the greatest gathering of ex-Confederates
since the war.
Lord Wolseley and Mr. Davis will be
tbe lions of tbe hour. Some of their ad
mirers hope that their meeting will result in
a settlement of their differences, as both are
so agreed in their admiration of Lee.

Washington, October 11. We have
again presented to the country the spectacle
of one member of President Harrison's
Cabinet running afoul of some of the
cherished projects of another member and
getting a lecture for it The p'eople of the
Southwestern border were convinced that
Secretary Windom had issued his celebrated
silver lead ore circular of July 17 for politi
cal effect alone, in the hope of influencing
the elections in the new Northwest, where
the opposition to the introduction of Mexican
flux ores was naturally most bitter.
They accordingly laid hold of Minister
Kyan when the latter was on his way to this
city to see the Pan-American Congress
started, and spread before him their side of
the controversy in full.
SUDDEN DECLINE IN COMMEBCE.
He was especially impressed with the
sudden and immense decline which had
taken place in the commerce between the
two countries, not through any retaliatory
measures on the part of the Mexican gov
ernment, but because the shippers of Mexi
can ores, being unwilling to submit their
products to the arbitrary rulings of the
United States Treasury Department, had
withdrawn their traffic from the railroad,
and the latter could not afford to run empty
cars one way without charging extraordi
nary freight rates for whatever they brought
back. This had put almost a prohibitory
ban on commercial intercourse between the
'Mr. Byan digested well all that he saw
and heard. Tbe visit North, "which had
been only diplomatic and social in its first
intent, took on a deeper significance. When
he asserted, therefore, in answer to inquiries
in Washington, that his journey had not
been undertaken for ihe purpose of drawing
Secretary Windom's attention
TO THE OTHEB SIDE
of the ore question, he was technically
straightforward, but in the broader sense
he was guilty ot a bit of diplomatic du
plicity. He had not come to Washington
for any kind of a negotiation Jrltb Secre
tary Windom, but on his way here he had
resolved to see to it that the sufferers 'on the
border, had a fair hearing'.- He "found the
was Mr. Blaine, jnst beginning towitness
the fruition of his long-cherished plan for a
congress of all the Americas, in order to
promote closer tradelielatiOBSrBd.staring
him in the face was the treaty circular of
July 17, threatening his scheme with ruin
in tbe case of tbe most important of all the
States represented in the congress. To the
Mexican envoys he was talking, over their
salads and champagne, about the charms of
an enlarged' intercourse, while his col
league in the second Cabinet chair was do
ing his best to make such a blessing impos
sible. It was an absurd and embarrassing
incongruity, and Mr. Blaine resolved to
put in his protest
it bbought an answeb.
He accordingly caused Mr. Byan to put
the substance of what had passed between
them into writing and enclosed this manu
script in a letter of his own to Mr. Windom,
setting forth in the strongest terms the
ruinous folly of the new treaty policy. Mr.
Windom answered the letter with the ut
most courtesy, as is hishabit, and elaborated
his reasons for taking the course he had.
The special agents who were sent to the
Mexican border last summer to nose about
and see how the customs levies on ares were
made, had reported to him a startling con
dition of things, in which the chief element
was the systematic practice of ,
FBAUD BY CERTAIN SHIPPEB3
whose ores were artificially "doctored" so
as to show just enongh silver in the assay
to carry them through on the free list This
discovery, and not political considerations,
Mr. Window maintains, was what caused
him to order a change of methods at Corpus
Christ!, Eagle Pass and El Paso.
The Blaine - Windom correspondence
which has not yet been given to the public,
and may never be, leaves tbe whole matter
about where it was. It is not likely that
Mr. Blaine will recede from his position
that the Treasury policy is working irrepar
able harm to the relations between the
United States and their sister Bepublic, and
that it threatens to undo much that he had
hoped to accomplish by his Pan-American
Congress. On the other hand, for Mr. Win
dom to take a back track now, wonld be to
acknowledge himself in the wrong, and to
invite criticism for having run, through in
discreet baste, into a diplomatic complica
tion with possible consequences of the most
far-reaching and perilous character.
BRECKINRIDGE SAYS NO.

rSPXCIAL TELEQBAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Washington, October 11. Representa
tive Clilton B. Breckinridge, of Arkansas,
one of the Democratic leaders in the last
House, said to The Dispatch correspond
ent this evening that the Democrats of the
next Honse wonld not throw a single ob
stacle in the way of rational, non-sectional
legislation by the Bepublican majority.
"But," said he, "if they attempt to
strangle. and fetter us with new rules in
order tolmss a law for the purpose of build
ing up a political machine in the South
under the pretextof regulatingour elections
we will stand in the breach and fight for our
liberties as Leonides never fought at Ther
mopyltc. If the Bepublicans are sincere, as
they claim to be, and desire to pass a law
regulating elections which shall be neither
sectional in scope and bearing nor in viola
tion of personal rights; if, in a word, they
present a law which shall correct existing
abuses not confined to particular sections or
States. I feel warranted in saying that the
minority will not interpose objection; cer
tainly not the slightest objection will be
offered to a inll and fair debate.
"But any attempt to enact legislation

by the last Bepublican national platform.
I cannot say what my idea is as to the sort

The Trial of the Broad way Kallroad Bribery
Cases Again Postpoued Colonel Fel
lows Says There Is No Money to
Continue the Trial of Kerr.
ISPICIAL TZLIGBAM TO THI DISPATCH.!
New Yobk, October 11. The extraordi
nary Court of Oyer and Terminer, convened
to try the Broadway Bailroad bribery cases,
reopened to-day, Jndge Daniels presiding.
Colonel Fellows asked that the. court be ad
journed to some future day. He said it was
impossible to try the bribery cases this year,
or at any time, unless the municipal author-ities-appropriate
money for the purpose.
. Colonel Ingersoll, for Kerr, arose slowly
and looked at Judge Daniels mournfully
for some time before he said anything-.
Then Colonel Ingersoll said, in a very low
voice: "It is, our desire, Your Honor, to get
your decision refusing to dismiss the indict
ments against Mr. Kerr in some suchform
that we can appeal from it" Jndge Dan
iels said that in the absence of written
pleadings he did not see but what the ap
peal must fall. So Colonel Ingersoll began
again with appalling solemnity:
Your Honor, we now demand an immediate
trial. This defendant has been twice tried and
once acauitted. It la unfair to keep these in
dictments banging over him. There ought to
be some end to this business. There is
not a bit of new evidence, and there
isn't any doubt but that on a third trial
he would again be acquitted. I know how I
wonld feel and how any man wonld feel in the
shadow of this awfnl thing. I would not want
to die with this gloom upon my grave. Why
should Mr. Kerr be kept In perpetual fear of
these Indictments? If the District Attorney
will stand up and say that there is a cloud the
size of a man's hand upon the horizon any
where which will frrow into a trial I am con
tent. Bmrnoteven tnatcan be descried. "We
ask for a trial or for tbe dismissal 'of these in
dictments to-day. If the District Attorney ac
cedes to our request there Is likely to go ud a
great .cry of corruption and so forth. Bat I
ask the Court to rise above popular clamor and
do justice to this man, my client
Colonel Fellows said that there was merit
in the application that had been made.
Judge Daniels said he would adjourn
court until the first Monday in January,
when the appropriation for another year
would be ready for the District Attorney.

ber of corner lots Were sold after 9 o'clock"
and the purchase money1 counted out in tbe
light vt the moon. According to the capital
boomers, Pierre is the center ot gravity, and
everybody is naturally rushing in its di
rection. "I am no hog," advertises one boomer,
"and for the next ten days will hold my
property at low prices, so the citizens of
South Dakota can get a snap and make
money." Another says: "I am willing to
divide. Come in quick and get your share."
A third sign reads: "Pierre is the center of
South Dakota, and these lots are the center
of Pierre. Call at the office and grab them
quick." A boomer from Bismarck, who is
helping to make things hum, offers a $1,200
lot for $1,000. "If you want the immortal
cinch, pick it up quick," he advertises.
Even the Indians have the fever and are
investing. A party of Boston speculators
and three full-blooded Sioux Indians were
examining a city map in the same office on
Pierre street, and all appeared equally in

Pierre is Jndge Leeper, who was here be

land, one corner of which just borders on
the Court House square.
The Judge was in the wholesale liquor
business then, and after he had paid up on
his property, was very anxious to sell it in
order to increase his business. After a long
wait he sold the quarter for S3,000,increased
his business, hired a manager and went

manager had mined him and left him clean

committee and other Bepublican leaders
were in session last night considering Chal

reached any conclusion it has not been pro

withdraw the whole ticket and abandon the

convention that after Chalmers' nomination
the leaders lost control of the convention,

COAL MINERS' TB0UBLES.
The Manager Befases to Confer With a
Committee, and the Men Will Not Work.
Spring Vaixet, Iix., October 11.
The Spring Valley Coal Company to-day
posted a notice offering to employ a limited
number of men for the thick, or middle vein,
work at Streatar prices and conditions.
The miners appointed a committee to wait
on General Manager Dalzell to notify him
that the men were ready to resume work in
the third vein at the same conditions as at
La Salle. Mr. Dalzell refused to treat with
the men except as individuals.
The committee reported its action to the
mass meeting and a motion was read and
carried that no one go to work in tbe middle
vein until a committee of the men is recog
nized by the company. Some of the miners
are dissatisfied with this action.
