the house to be a sheet of flames.
The house burned to the ground,
and most all of the furniture went
with it. Mr. Vandeveiiter and fam-

the house and to save a small por

This forenoon a couple came from

He produced a match and, lighting it,

Judge Gresham has at last been
heard from and has defined in his
own peculiar way his position if
regard to the presidential nomina
tion. Hon R. S Scott, chairman on
the Iowa state central committee of
the people's party, yesterday sent
Judge Gresham the following tele
"W il you stand as the candidate
of the Omaha convention for the
presidency on the St. Louis plat
lorm. K. s. scott
To this telegram Judge Gresham
last night replied:
'I stand by my interview of a few
days ago on the subject. My name
will not be presented to the Omaha
convention." WALTER O,. GRESUAM
The interview to which Judge
Gresham refers was one in which
he stated that he agreed with the
people's party on a great many
things, but that he did not agree
with that party in all its declara
tions. Thus the telegram received
from the judge is interpreted as
meaning that he cannot stand as a
candidate on the St. Louis platform,
since in his interview he stated that
he did not agree with that party in
all its declarations. The announce
ment that a telegram had been re
ceived from the judge caused con
siderable excitemeut late last eve
ning, and when its contents became
known it was generally accepted by
the more conservative as clearly
indicating that Judge Gresham did
not desire his name to be longer
mentioned in this connection
Considerable stress is put upon his
closing sentence: "My name will
not be presented to the convention.'
This is accepted as being the ex
pression of his sincere desire in re
garu to tne matter, mere are a
few of the more enthusiastic
Gresham men, however, who are
still disposed to believe that the
judge will accept the nomination if
it be tendered him, but these gen
tlemen appear to be in a hopeless
minority, and the indications are
that this telegram will be accepted
as authoritative and final, and that
the Gresham boom is a thing of the
The national convention of the
people' 8 party will convene under
inspiring circumstances. The pas
sage of the free silver bill by the
United States senate yesterday is
accepted by the delegates to the na
tional convention as a vindication
of their organization's demand for
a greater circulating medium. The
leaders all agree that nothing could
hevebeen done at this time that
could have been more propritious
for the people's part3r hopes.
The national central committee,
composed of 150 prominent mem
bers of the people's party from all
