OHIO EEPUBLIOANS NOMI
NATE HIM FOB GOVERNOR.
THERE WAS NO OPPOSITION.
Asa Bushnell Permanent Chair
man His Selection Said to bo
Forakor's Oholco and a De
feat for Senator Sherman.
By National Press Association.
Colcnbub, O., June 17. The capital ot
the Buckeye State bubbled over with Re
publican enthusiasm to-day. The crowd
gathered hero Is the largest that has
been drawn together by any political
State convention since war times.
When the convention assembled this
morning the prominent leaders of the
party were enthusiastically chcorcd.
Asa Bushnell of Springfield was solectcd
oermanent chairman. Tho result Is a sin-
nal dofeat for Senator John Sherman and
a corresponding victory for Joseph ft,
Forakor. The latter had 18 members of
the committee out ot 21.
Sherman wa9 not even placed in nomi
nation, although it hod all along been
understood that In coming here as a
delegate-at-large be had expected to pre
side over the gathering. When, however,
it was proposed that Bushnell be chosen
by acclamation the three objected with
one voice and protested against gag law.
Ono In particular said that he had been
sent to tho convention as a Sherman
man, and proposed to stand by bis
colors. Finally Bushnell was selected by
a majority vote. This moans that no
resolution endorsing John Sherman for
Senator will be submitted to-day. His
t ost course, howover, may be approved
by a perfunctory resolution.
Major William J. McKlnley was unani
mously nominated for Governor.
After the nomination the convention
took a recess and Major McKlnley re
ceived bis friends.
The remainder of the ticket will bo
completed this afternoon, and an open-air
meeting will be held this evening, when
the nominee for Governor will make a
speech and accept the nomination.
The resolutions arraign and donounco
the present Democratlo State administra
tion, and tho recent Democratlo Legisla
ture is denounced for Its f ulsity to its
pledges, lte incompetency, Its extrava
gance, and its election to the United
RtntiR flnnntu oi a "financial speculator."
and "a man who Is practloiilly a non
resident of Ohio, who had no record of
statesmanship and nothing to recommend
him for the honor out his money a man
more in sympathy with Wall street than
wi'h the people of this Common weolth. "
Also for having unseated, without regard
to even tho forms of law, a legally elect
ed Republican LieutonanUGovernor in
obedience to the decree ot u party cauous
for purely partisan purposes.
The Democratlo Legislature is also ar
raigned for passing the most unfair Con
gressional gerrymander oyer enacted In a
Northern State, under which the Repub
lican party, with a majority of 20,000,
was given less than one-third of Ohio's
representation In tho national House,

KILRAIN IS BEATEN.
Ho Falls Before Slavin, tho Aus
tralian, In Nine Rounds.
Nbw York, Juno 17. The glove eonteBt
for a purso of 210,000, ot which $2,500
goes to tho loser, betwoen Frank P.
Slavin ot Australia, and Jake Kilrala ot
Baltimore, ended In the ninth round.
Refereo Jere Dunn decides that Slavln
won the battle. All bets that Slavin
would knock out Kilraln, howover, the
refereo decides off.
The result of the contest creates some
dissatisfaction, but in the opinion of ex
ports Dunn's rulings ore fair.
The trouble arose over the failure ot
the electric gong to work, necessitating
the appointment of a timekeeper, "hon
est" John Kelly, who after Kilraln was
knocked down in the ninth round count
ed 10 seconds, whoroupon tho refereo
who did not see the Baltlmorcan's ef
forts to get up awarded tho match to
Wlllain Muldoon, Kilratn's second, cn-
claimed that the sound of tho gong Indi
cated only tho ending of the round. It
is purely a technical point.
From the first half ot the third round
It was practically certain that tho $10,000
would go to Slavin. The contest there
fore was a magnificent exhibition ot
sameness on tho part of Kilraln a qual
ity partly due to tho excellence of his
condition. Tho Baltlmprean la mnch the
cleverer boxor, but Slavln's strength and
reach told the Btory.
Friends of the champion, John L. Sul
livan, among them Dan Murphy, ot Bos
ton, deolare that the Australian would
not last two rounds before tho big fellow.
Others express high admiration of Sla
vln's skill and consider him a world
boater. Hofnro the Fight.
A good crowd of sports ohecrcd tho
principals and their seconds when thoy
entered the ring at 11:18. Both men
claimed to bo in good condition. Kilraln
weighed about 100 pounds, while Slavin
tipped tho boam at 183.
Slavln's seconds wore Charley Mitchell,
Pony Moore and Ed. Stoddard, while Kil-

HE PERFORMANCE INTERESTING
Pawnee Bill aud His Indian Cow
boys Entertain Large Crowds
at Schuylkill's Favorite
Notwithstanding the heavy thunder
storm yesterday afternoon Pawnee Bill
and his cowboys and Indians gave an ex
cellent show at Lakesldo Park. Tho open
ing wns postponed for a half an hour and
then the combination appeared beforo tho
audienco, which was a large ono. Tho
track and grounds were very heavy, but
tho horses and men got over them in good
W. W. Lewi?, Mahanoy City's farnou
sport, took advantage of Pawnee Bill's
invitation for tho audienco to take a ride in
the Deadwood cof.cn. Ho stepped into tho
vehicle smiling liko a baket of chips, but
when he alighted, after the coach pa'scd
through the battle of tho cowboys and
Indians ho looked as if ho had nothing to
Wo for In this world.
After the performance ono of tho steer
got away from tho herd and escaped into
the woods near the lakes. The Indians
and cowboys started on n hunt alter him,
driving tho herd in front of them, and
finally succeeded in re-eapturinir the fugi
tive. But this was only Hccompilihel alter
a good hunt and chn'o, th visitors to the
park having mtantime enjoyed a genuine

Last night's Pottsvillo Chronicle pub
lished tho following :,
"While the herd of bulfalo belonging to
tho Pawnee Bill -"Wild West Show Were
tjeir.g loaded on the cars nt Lakeside Park
n Sunday, ono dt tho bjQaloes became
enraged and gured several of thQhandiomo
spotted ponies, killing two outright. Aftr
some narrow escapes the buflalo was Una ly
kille 1 to save the stock "
The above is' not correct. Tho mishap
was not at Lakeside.
' While the animals belonging to the show
were being lottduJ on tho cars at I'uttstown
on Saturday venmg a bull bulfalo went
in a lauipngo and after scattering the cow
boys and IndUns it plunged at a hand'ome
broncho tied in a corner and tore a deep
s;ash in the animal's rump, The blood
spurted put in a stream as big as a man s
wrist. The animal will probably die.
Pawnee Bill was quite unfortunate dur
ing his stay at Poltstown. As rofirjod to,
elsewhere in this paper, tho pipopse of
Great Feather and Pretty Face, two In
dian members of the show, died and
shortly after a cow buffalo dropped over
dead. The animal was valued at ?300.
Then, on Saturday, tho pony was gored.
Says the Pottstown AVim: Although
he Wild West huw took away from
FotUtown 81,650, while not as large as at
Allentown, it was one of thpbet we-ks he
has had. Should the iony die his UMt on
Saturday will kuiouui tol&O.
This moruinir Pawnee Bill's Indians ar
rived in t wn. They leioained here until
lio'in, itor which they r - urned Lik -
tide to take part in the show. J.hy were
accompmled by an Interpreter. Durlnc
their stay thoy excitod great curiosity.
Probably no Chief living to-day has had
such an extraordinary lifo as (Ku-suck-!eia)
Left Hand, tho undisputod Chief of tho
Kit-ka-kack band of tho Pawnees. Ho is
a true ideal of an Indian Chiof," bolng as
straight as an arrow.high cheek bones, very
dark skin, long hair, with scalp lock
braided ; is very fond of the Indian dress,
such aspnintlng, buckskin lcKgines, wear
ing his head dress of eaglo foathers, Bnd
scalps taken from his enemy In the younger
Ills fathor, being Chiof of tho I'awnoos,
would havo thrown Left Hand naturally a
chief at his death; but his father, being a
shrewd man, called bis son to him and ad
drn'sed him thus : "Boforo another moon
my warriors will bo on tho trail of the
Sioux. I want you to Join tho war party
and gain favor with your fellow warrior
by takinz many scalps of your enemy, and
thereby you may bo chosen chief, for I am
trctting'too old to follow the trail, and be
fore I go to the hunting ground I would
wish to see you Chief of tho Pawnees."
Loft Hand, although a vory young man,
did as his father wished, and upon his re
turn to the camp laid beforo his father the
scalps of seven Sioux, this being two raort
than that of any othor.
Ho was then appointed a? Chief of tho
Kit-ka-knck band of i'awnoes, and has
continued as such evor slnco. His popu
larity nnd renown thus gained continued to
Increase. As n warrior and commander he
his noeoual, as is proved and endorsed by
tuo otneers ol the United Slates, army who
were in commani of tho expedition sont
Bgi!nittheSioux,in which Loft Handand a
band of his warr on were enlisted. The ter
rible massacre of tiioux by tho l'awneos is
of too recent a dato t require mention
here Hi' skill as a hunter, trapper am)
trailer is uniiirpassed, and in the councils
of hi tribe tie exhibited much native
diplomatic nnd oratorical ability. During
the Sioux outbreak whero Left Handand
nis oana oi rgwnoos wero enlisted rs
soldiers, nnd armed and rrccivod pay as
such undor Major Frank J. North, they
underwent many hair-breadth escapes, and
to-day, Left Hand, as well as many of his
daring warriors, carry wounds and scars
receivod at tho handsiof the blood-thirsty
Sioux, Major North had Intended to
mako n night march and Eurprlso the
Sioux who were, encamped on tho boad
wators of the Bepublican. They came
upon the Sioux at near daybreak, and
Major North ordered an advance and a
quick fire. Left Hand gave the war
whoop, and In an instant evory warrior
waj at his heels and blood in every oye.
Thoy went down over tho eldo hill into tho
Sioux camp, but, tho wary Sioux, who had
long been oxpecting this, wero on their
horses, weapons in lund, ready to meet
them; the fight was most deaperato, Whilo
Lsft Hand was attempting to kill tho-Chiof
of the Sioux, a musket ball struck bishors
in tho neck and brnko It, thus throwing
him with ronowed force against mothor
uarth and rendering him for tho time in
sensible. The Sioux, thinking their op
pjiiont'l chief dead, mnie an assault, but
were repulsed "and put to flight; after gain
ing the crest of tho bill they mado a stand,
but upon looking around and seoing Lell
Hand (whom they thought dead) at the
bead of hit warriors, coming as fast as
horse flesh could carry them, tbey put to
flight, and altera running light of three
miles tho Pawnees returned with n loss of
only lour men, wliilo the Pawnees' scalp
belts were increased by forty-seven Sioux
scalps. As thoy neared tho desertod village,
cries of babies wero hoard In a clump of
moeket brush near at hand. Upon going
there, fivo small Sioux bablos were found
having been, thrown there by tho fleeing
mothers in their basty flight, thinking they
wuuld return after the battlo and regain
tbem; but tho Pawnees put them to death,
thus saving them from tho ravages of tho
wolves and coyotes.
