HEN General Frauk Reader told
ii reporter thia morning that
he wasempbatically not a can
didate and that he believed the
nomination would go to Susquehanna
county, it is believed he clinched the
boom of tho sage of Glenwood, beyond
nny probability of defeat. At nil vent,
the Grow headquarters at the Lochiei
soun afterward exhibited an irreproesi
ble air of victory. Senator Qiay, who
will not bo in tho city toiumorrow.seut
word by his son Richard that be had
no preferences; and the attitude of
David Martin, ex-Collector Cooper and
others of the Philadelphia leaders near
est to the junior senator soon afterward
pronouueed in the ex speaker's behalf,
Tonight, in the senate chamber, with
William R. Leds in the chair, and
William K Aliern aud Charles II.
Siyre acting as secretaries, the Phila
delphia delegation voted unanimously
to support Mr. Grow as a unit. The
motion, which was made by David Mar
tin, after a long consultation with
Dick Quay, was the outgrowth of Gen
eral Reeder's declination. General
Stiowden's retirement from the Bunt.
and the decision of the support; of
George A. Castor that it would be
utterly futile to attempt to stem the
tide from the northeastern counties. A
committer,conistiug of D.ivid Martin,
Alexander Crow and Arthur Mooro,
was appointed to notifiv Mr. Grow of
the action of the caucus, which was
the signal of much jubilation among
the delegates ana visitors from "up
country" as they say here.
WILL WIN BY ACCLAMATION.
There is now every reason to believe
that wheu the convention assembles
at noon tomorrow only one ballot will
lie taken, and Mr. Grow will be notn
iinated by acclai latiou. The friends of
ex Congressui.-.r. J. S. Biery, of Allen
town, may decide to present his name
to the convention by way of compli
ment. Tonight at the Commonwealth the
leaders came to an agreement as to the
platform. It will be short, sharp and
emphatic. The only three points to ba
covered will be a tribute to General
Lillie's memory, a biting arraignment
of the Wilson bill and a sham flow of
vigorous Anglo Ssxon with reference
to the Cleveland-Blouut-Grasham
policy of infnmy toward Hawaii.
At 10 o'clock tomorrow the state
committee will decida upon a date
and phice for the holding of the con
vention of next summer. Sentiment
iavors an early gathering, and it ia
probable the convention will be called
for the last week In May or the first
week iu June. Allentown and Wil
liamsport both want to entertain its
delegates, but it will probably go to
Harrisburg, in view of the capital's
superior access by rail.
MK. (iROW COXOOATTTLATSD,
The Grow headquarters were
thronged throughout tne afternoon and
evening. .'.ieoresontative Scrantou,
Lieutenant Governor Watref, and
Delegates Zimmerman and Jones, of
Curhondale, were in active evidence;
and late in the evening bdltor Theo
dore Hart, of Pittston. the sponsor of
the Grow movement, was greeted cor
dially. The attendance from the north
eastern ennnti-s is large, considering
the fact that only one nomination is to
be made. Editor Powell, accompanied
by ex-Attorney General Palmer, from
Luzerne's cciity seat, reached the
Lochiel at about the same time that
General Hastings arrived in tow
of his expert literary promotor, Col
onel J. H. Lambert, of the Philadelphia
When it became known later that
Mr. Grow would have virtually no op
positionjthere was a surge in his direc
tion, aud nothing but lis retnarkuble
vitality enabled him to endure the
handshaking that bombarded him.
General Hastings was cordially received
on every band. It ia claimed that a
quiet canvass is being ma le in his be
half, the result of which may lead
to his nomination without show of
opposition. John B. Robinson and
Walte r Lyon are also sowing oats for
the lieutenant goverorship, with the

from Pernambuco, Dec. 10, re
ports that the new English built
gunboat or torpedo destroyer Aurora
which was recently purchased by the
Braziliau government arrived at Per
nambuco Nov. 28. An offer of L'2 per
day per man was made to the English
armorers In charge of tho gUDI to iu
duce them to remain, but it was re
fused and the men retur .td to Eng
land. There ia an uneasy feeling noticeable
among the inhabitants. Martial law
is strictly onforcad and no discussions
of a political nature are heard. Dtirirg
the stay iu port Captain Andenou saw
a street car coudnctor shot and in
stantly killed by a soldier becaus) the
conductor requested the soldier to
stand aud give his seat to passengers
who had paid, their fare.
SCENES OF TERROR IN THE CITY.
Apparently little notice was taken of
the affair, aud' the soldier was not
brought to account so far us Captain
Auderson coul 1 learn. Ten day3 he
lore he left Pernambuco, Captain An
derson said, twelve naval cadets were
shot by Peixoto's soldiers. The cadets
were on board the guardship Parahyba
stationed ili the harbor. They were
arrested in the evening and accused of
conspiracy against the government.
At suurise nest day the cadets who, as
alleged, intended to turn tb'j guard
ship over to Mello, were sb t.
A number ot people ga'.hered on the
plaza to see the execution. The cadets
were escorted to the place of death by
a body of soldiera The drums rolled
mournfully. The young men Wire
placed in JIM and handkerchiefs cov
ered their eyes. By the first volley
sevou fsi! dead, pierced by many bul
letB. The other wore only wounded.
One of 'lie wounded cadets started to
run, but he was quickly brought to
earth, pierced by half a dozen rifle
balls. The rest of the condemned
men were killed by the second volley.
This esicotion deeply nft'octed the
populace and filled tho people with
great fear aa to the power of the gov
ernment. Martial law was in force
aud had been for about two weeks pre
vious to the shooting of the uaval cadets.

Berlin, Jan. 2.
AST November tha Voisische Zeit
nng of this city published a
story from Kovno, capitol of the
Lra covernment of that name in
Russia, stating that the imperial au
thorities, who are, of course, members
of the Greek cliuroh, had ordered that
the Catholic church ut Kroche, in
that government, be closed. With the
purpose, it was said, of preventing the
order from being c-irried out, a large
number of Catholics took possession of
the church and held it, day aud night,
against the authorities.
The governor at last sent n troop of
Cossacks to dislodge the defender of
the church and a desperate conflict re
sulted. Twenty of the Catholics were
said to havo been killed with swords or
lances, while 100 were reported to have
been wotuided. Those who wero un
hurt or only slightly injured li'd from
the church, pursued by the Cossacks,
who drove thorn into a river, where
many of thotn were drowned. The
orthodox peasants were said to have
aided in the massacre.
THE OFFICIAL VERSION.
Soon after the publication of this
story the Russian papers came out with
an official version of the affair. Ac
cording to thoBo papers, the Czar had
ordered the church to be closed in or
der that an agricultural collage might
be built ou the site. The Catholics ob
jected to the order and declined to let
it be executed. The governor and
three companies of Cossacks then forci
bly closed tho cinirch do rs,and an en
counter between tho military aud po
lice on one side and tho Catholics on the
o:her followed. Four policemen were
slightly wounded. The official state
inept branded the story of a massacre
of the i. 'at holies as a pure invention.
Tho Coloane Gazette a few days ago
said it ilid not credit the official deuial
aud claimed to know that tho story of
the massacre was true. Today the
Volks Z?ituug publishes mail advices
trom itrosche, bearing out in every
particular the first story of the killing
of the Catholics. It adds that the Cos
sacks displayod the groatost barbarity
aud took hindiab delight iu killing de
fenceless womon. it is -eaii that some
of the young wotueu were subjected to
the vilest indignities by the Cossacks.
After tho capture of the church by
the soldiers the building was desecrated
in every conceivable way, aomo of the
Cossacks throwing the Host from the
iltar and trampling upou it. The re
ligious symbols and church decorations
were completely destroyed. 1 he peo
ple who had been killed by lance
thrusts or by olows from swords
were lying about the church in ovary
lirection, while the Lossacks, heed
le-t, of their piteous appeals, trampled
upon them with their heavy boots aud
sometimes struck ut them with their
spurs lu thn meantime the Catholics
who bad tl-d in dismay when they saw
so many of their comrades fall, ran in
the direction of the river. A aoparalv
band of Cossacks started after tliem.

dashed by in pursuit of tht- fugitives.

In this manner When tho river was

WHIPPED WITH KNOUTS.
Those who did not jump into the
river, were secured by the Cossacks
and taken back to the town, where
those who had beon captured at the
church were held as prisoners, The
authorities ordered that all of them be
flogged, aud tho ordor was carried out
in the market place. Women as well
as men, were stripped until thoy wera
