First Sergeant Saiauel M. Sopher, of the

morning. Both men paraded in this city

UTAH 8 COXYENTION AGAINST POLYGAMY.
Salt Lake, July 5. In tho Utali con
stitutional convention to-day the com
mittee reported a new section stating that
bigamy and polygamy being considered
incompatible with a republican form of
government, each of them is hereby for
bidden and declared a misdemeanor; the
punishment for violation a fine not ex-
$1,000, and imprisonment not less than
six months and not more than thiee years.
The section shall be construed as opera
ivc without legislation and the offenses
prohibited not to be barred by any
statute of limitation; nor shall the power
of pardon extend thereto until such par
don be approved by the president of the
United States. Any amendment, pro
vision or change to the foregoing section
6hall not become a law until ratified by
congress and the president of the United
States. These sections have been agreed
to in committee and caucus, and it is
thought will undoubtedly be passed by
the convention. The Mormon leaders
think they will prove the settlement of
the vexatious Mormen problem.
A LiqUOR MAX ARRESTED FOR BURNING UP
Erie, Pa., July 5. About 9:30 last
night two fires broke oat almost simul
taneously in the hotel and a saw mill at
Clarendon, seven miles east of "Warren,
and a brisk wind swept the flames over
the frame buildings of the village like a
whirlwind. Aid was procured from
Warren as soon as possible, but it was
too late to stay the progress of the tire,
and about all that was saved of the town
was the railroad depot The area burned
over is about twenty acres and the value
of the buildings is estimated at $330,000,
exclusive of contents. The insurance is
insignificant. Eleven hundred people
are homelaes to-night and camping in
the woods. Lumber in large quantities
is being shipped in and preparations are
being made as rapidly as possible to pro
vide shelter for the unfortunate inhabi
tants who have lost their all. It is be
lieved that the fire wasof incendiary
origin and the trouble is alleged to have
grown out of the refusal of the county
authorities to give liquor licenses. The
proprietor of tho hotel where the fire was
first discovered is charged with having;
uttered (hreats to burn the town and this
morningjie fled to the woods. He was
soon captured, however, and placed in
jail. Threats of lynehing are freely

Washington, July 5. Cleveland is
throwing off all disguise as to his can
didacy for rcnomination. He does not
talk generally upon the subject, but ho is
making his plans openly, and they indi
cate that he is actively in the field for a
rcnomination. lie no longer has nny
fears that the Xew York delegation will
be devided. He has definitely agreed to
go south in October, and told Senator
Colquitt, of Georgia, to-day, that he
thought he would start lor Georgia about
October 15th. Frequent visits of Col
quitt to the White House give color to
reports that are credited by persons very
near tlie I'resiuent, mat iamar 19 to ie-
coine justice ot the huprcmc Court, nni
that Colquitt is to succeed him as Sec
retary of the Interior.

A PANIC ON A STREET RAILWAY RESULTS
Fitchburg, Mass., July 5. A terrible
accident occurred yesterday afternoon
on the Fitchburg horse railroad in which
one woman was killed and two passen
gers received injuries which will prob
ably prove fatal, while several others
were badly hurt. The car iett t itciirmrg
soon after noon for the fair grounds and
had ninety people on board on their way
to see a ball game. Many persons were
hanging to the front and rear platforms
and sides of the car. When a short dis
tance out of the city the horses became
frightened and the driver lost control of
the animals. They ran along at a rapid
pace and some one shouted form the
rear platform: "Jump for your life."
In an instant the passengers who v.'tre
crowded together and conld not see the
horses over the driver, became panic
stricken. They rose from their sent3,
forcing those who were standing in the
aisles between the seats and the platforms.
These were already full and the sudden
rush pushed off seyeral of them. A tew
umped from the car ana escaped un
hurt. The casualty list is as lollows:
Marion O'Brien was pushed from a plat
form and fell head foremost upon the
rocks alongside the track. Her neck was
broken and her skull fractured. Mary
O'Hara, who was sitting near the side of
the car, was forced out of her seat and
fell from the car, striking on her head.
She remained unconscious for some
hours. Mr. Cahill leaped off and fell to
the ground, breaking his leg at the thigh.
Bridget Dunne wvs pushed irom tne
platform and dragged along, scraping
her face, injuring one eye anct uauiy
bruising her body. Allen McCarthy
leaped and fell, breaking his collar bone
and both ankles. Robert Maitland was
forced over the dashboard of the rear
platform aud was cut and bruised and
sustained probably fatal injuries. Thos.
Conroy fell off the car and was thrown
nto an alley. Several were more or less
njured, but were able to go home with

of a property owner at Mont Murtre ex
ploded today, doing considerable damage.
All Ihe windows in the vicinity wire

THE GOVERNMENT DEFEATED.
London, .July 5. In tlie commons to
night Campbell Bamieriiiiin, formerly
chief secretary for Ireland, guve notice
that lie would introduce on the second
reading of the Irish land bill a motion
that no bind measure be satisfactory
which lacked such revision of judicial
rents as would meet tliensuits of the fall
in irices. An animated discussion took
place over the conduct of the politic in
arresting a young woman named Cass,
who is of pure repute, as an improper
haraeter. The debate resulted in tho
defeat of the government by a vote of
153 to 148. The criticisms of the mem
bers were directed less against the peace
authorities than against .Mathews, homo
secretary, who was accused of shielding
the ofiieinls. A number of liberal union
ists voted with the majority. It is ex
pected that the defeat of the government
wiil lead to the resignation of Matthews.
IT CAUSED A SENSATION.
London, July 5. Great has been the
jubilation in tlie common lobby and li
beral clubs over the distinct defeat of tlie
government. It comes strongly after the
recent defeat at thenolU. Oddly cnouirh.
tlie new Gladstone members' first ote
was against the cabinet. Home Secretary
Mathews must resign. 1 lis defeat is not
only severe, per se, but it distinctly im
peaches his candor and his want of man
liness, necessarily also that of the govern
ment which stood by his blunder with
tory obstinacy, even the attorney general
backing up tlie home secretary. Lord
Bandolph Churchill, his political god
father, had the good sense to keep out of
the division. The morning papers are
unanimously savage on him. The Tele
graph, hitherto friendly to the govern
ment, using such strong language as that
"the vote was a deserved rebuke to Math
ews," and characterized what the attor
ney general urged as a general special
pleading. The liberal unionists deserted
the government. The cheer which went
up from the home rule benches on the re
sult was said, by the Irish members, to
be the overture to tho coming opera of
GOVERNOR GORJXN S MESSAGE.
Atlanta, July 5. There are several
features of the message which Governor
Gordon will send to the legislature on
Wednesday likely to attract national at
tention, and none more so than the atti
tude which he proposes to take in regard
to the Atlanta university. This institu
tion is for colored students, but is taught
by white professors who mix in their own
children with the negroes. Governor
Gordon's idea is to give state aid of $8,
000 per annum to a purely negro univer
sity taught by negro professors, thus cut
ting off the offending whites. The gov
ernor renews his plea that convict leases be
abolished and that convicts be worked
on public works. He declares the agita
tion for the payment of repudiated bonds
to be mischievous in that the barriers in
tlie way of payment are insurmountable.
He will call attention to the barbarous
condition of prisons throughout the state,
and urge more humane treatment of pris
oners. Upon the question of prohibition
which now supplants democracy, he will
be strangely silent. There is a strong ef
fort being made today to get him to in
sert a recommendation for more extended
annuities to ex-cen federate soldiers under
the guis of artificial limbs, the idea be
ing to give commutation for such arti
cles to the soldiers direct.
THE EMPEROU AT EMS.
Ems, July 5. I stood within a few
feet of the emperor as he stepped from
the sleeping car of his special train this
morning. He looked weak from past
illness and exhausted by the journey, but
still had strength enough to respond re
peatedly to the cheering. He stood sev
eral minutes Rowing to the crowd which
waited patiently below Kurham's window
at the depot. The crowd willingly drop
ped back out of sight of the platform at
an officer's suggestion that it wounded
the emperor's pride to have his subjects
see he had been helped out of the rail
way car. As the kaiser stepped on
the crimson footcloth a brilliant officer
advanced and almost knelt as lie kissed
his hand. Within the station the emper
or received a few intimates. They went
out to the carriage to drive under the shad
ow of hundreds of flags to Kurharas.
Most of the distance till poles covered
with evergreens were erected every few
feet on both sides of the street. Between
the poles youngsters six to ten years- old
from the Ems school were stationed each
with a boquet to throw at the emperor as
he passed. All the way including even
the bridge over the Lohn was lined with
a dense crowd. Finally the tired emper
or came to the -window, Four times he
acknowledged the greeting ot the people
outside. The people of E1113 who had
not seen the emperor since his recent ill
ness were a good deal shocked at his ap
pearance but have entire faith that he
only needs Ems to ensure absolute recov
ery. I am told the kaiser decided, con
trary to the advise of his physicians, to
leave Ems on the 11th for Coblenetz,
Baden-Baden, Constance and Gastein.
