The Democratic county conven
tion, which met at the Court House
Tuesday, carried out the prearranged
harmony program to the letter, and
| the Democrrtic county ticket is as
State Senate—E. J. Mullen.
A ssenilily—J act >b M eyers.
Sheri H'—J all ics Walsh.
Chairman Gallagher called the
convention to order at .'1:30 and tin
roll when called showed :>7 delegates
present out of the 4(1 elected. The
following officers were Pres
ident, Hon. Kussel Karns; Vice-Pr's
Hon. Conrad Kraus, John A. Speak
er; Secretaries, (Seo. Streby Tlios. E.
Kernan; Committee on Resolutions,
P. 11. Met See, Thos. S. Tompkins,
John F. Finau.
The nominations were all made
unanimous with the exception of
Sheriff. The last ballot resulting in
giving Walsh 22 and Cott 18.
"Harmony" characterized the pro
ceedings from first to last, the har
monizers being in such a decided
majority that they could compel
the kickers fo be harmonious,
although it required several hours of
preliminary work before going into
convention. A secret meeting that
lasted nearly two hours after the
time for calling the convention to
order keeping the court room in strict
seclusion. Delegates were grouped
here and there aud seemed rather
slow to respond to the call after the
bell had been rung several times.
The reasons for all this was most
likely that the nominations had been
agreed upon in advance by the lead
ers, and democratic harmony for
such an occasion is so plentiful as to
be a drug on the market. Those
who domineer the party now talk
harmony. They inhale harmony as
they breath and exhale it with their
cigar smoke. They dream of har
mony in their sleep, and eat, drink,
talk, work and sleep iu an atmos
phere of harmony so dense as to lie
almost oppressive, and in their
speeches before the convention used
the word "harmony" almost inces
santly. But why?
At the close of the convention the
nominee for State 'Senate,- E. J.
Mullen anxiously responded to a call
for an address, iu which lie distribut
ed oratorical bouquets with strict
impartiality to all the slated nomi
nees just elected, and spoke of the
confidence of success, seemingly (in
their ability to nominate their own
candidates and elect their ticket).
His denunciation of the Republican
party was too hot to be printed upon
ordinary paper. As he spoke in
this strain his hearers liked it and
listened to it with absorbing atten
tion. lie closed his remarks by
stating he would give the floor to
the gentleman who had been given
the honor of running for Congress.
All looked for the tall diplomatic
figure to rise and sustain the distinc
tion given him by Columbia county
newspaper in his last campaign—one
of his "eloquent speeches." But lo
and behold the seat was already
vacant, which signified that he did
not propose to simplify the situation,
and called to mind irresistibly the
parrot's soliloquy: "The trouble
with me 1 talk too much." Adjourn
ed for refreshments.
Found Dead in lied.
Orrin Bennett was found dead in
bed Thursday morning at his son's

Mangled by a Train.
.Miles Hums, a tanner residing in
I Cherry township, was killed and his
; body horribly mutilated hy a freight
train, a few rods beyond the depot at
Dushore, at I o'clock Sunday morn
ing. .Miles had driven to town Sat
urday afternoon to attend the Dem
ocratic primaries, and as politics was
warm and interesting he remained
about town until a late hour. About
11 o'clock lie was seen driving
toward the station which is not in
thi' direction of his home, and it is
supiwised was 011 his way to the
brewery. Sunday morning at (5:30
his mangled body was found along
the track where it had been dragged
and scattered for some distance,
showing that he bad been struck a
short distance beyond the crossing,
where the shaft of the wagon was
also found crushed and the wagon
thrown below the track. The theory
most probable to suppose is that he
bad goten off the road at the crossing,
which runs nearly parallel with the
track, and in trying to guide the
animal back into the road, overturn
ed the wagon, throwing him out and
rendered unconscious laying on the
track. The horse had broken loose
from the wagon and went home.
The remains were gathered up and
taken to the undertaker. Coroner
\\ ackcnhuth was summoned and re
sponded to the call, but found it un
necessary to bold an inquest as the
cause of his death was understood.
