Ohio's Delegation Will Be Solid For the ,
Great Apostle of Protection. j
Cincinnati, Ohio, Sept. 13. The
political sensation of to-day is the
comments made among politicians
upon the pronounced utterance of
Governor McKinley in favor of ex
Governor Foraker for United States
senator, and his urgent plea that
special attention be given to the elec
tion of the legislature. Those who
are accustomed to reading between
the lines maintain that the unexpected
position of McKinley is a part of. a
combination that is of national inter
est, and that among other things, it
means that Ohio will be a unit for
McKinley for president.
Fitzsimmons Wants In.

prints a story in which it is said that
Fitzsimmons declared that he will re
fuse to meet Corbett in Dallas unless

that he accuses Brady, Corbett, Joe
Vendisr and Stewart of Dallas with
gobbling up everything in sight, from
the lemonade stand to the eidoloscope,
with "which it is intended to reproduce
the fight throughout the country. It
is the latter eoncession that Bob is
jealous of, and it is said that he has
made a formal demand for a percent
age of the profits on it, otherwise he
declares there will be no fight.

Ex-Soldiers Again In Line.
Louisville, Ky., Sept. 12. Thous
ands of ex-Confederates and hosts of
other people gathered early this morn
ing along the streets to witness the
grand parade of the Grand Army of
the Republic and cheers were constant
as the divisions marched along to the
streets where they were to form. The
entire line of march was cleared of
everything while the Louisville Le
gion, the cadets and Kentucky Nation
al Guard patrolled the ways and there
was no delay. Forty thousand veter
erans were in line and fully 300,000
people witnessed the march.
The parade was headed by two ex
Confederates on horseback, Captain
John H. Weller and Captain William
H. Harrison. They did not wear the
gray, but were dressed in black Prince
Alberts with silk hats and red, white
and blue sashes, the same as members
of the citizens' committee. They also
wore red, white and blue scarfs and
rosettes. Captain Weller carried a
large United States flag and Captain
Harrison a large white banner of
peace. In place of the eagle on the
top of the staff, the white banner had
a dove carrying an live twig.
The ve t-rans showed the weight of
years a n.l the offee a of service. It
was the general remark that there
were never so many old, lame and fee
ble men in line. 'ut l,izy marched
proudly none the le-s.
At .sunrise the only clouds were from
the saiute of forty guns, and the
weather even was for peac. The de
partments began forming at an early
hour under special orders to have the
prowssion move promptly at 10:30
o'clock. At 0:30 another salute was
fired for the first grand division to
form. At 10 o'clock the guns indicated
that the escort was moving to the head
of the column and at 10:30 the salute
signaled all the ten grand divisions to

Will Kins: for Freedom.
Chicago, Sept. 12. The Columbian
liberty bell starts on its trip around
the world on Friday morning at 8
o clock. It will first go to the Atlanta
exposition to remain two months.
Then it will be taken to New Orleans
and the City of Mexico, and from there
to Runnymeade, England, where the
bell will ring in commemoration of
Magna Charta. The rest of the jour
ney has not yet been planned, but it is
the intention to have the bell reach
Mount Arrarat in 1000. and ring at a
congress of representatives from every
religious organization on earth.
The Ohio Governor for Sound Mor.ey
and Against the Bond Syndicate.
Springfield, Ohio Sept. 12. In his
speech yesterday Governor McKinley,
after criticising the foreign and do
mestic policy of the Cleveland admin
istration, the governor asserted that
the real subject of contention in Ohio
is the tariff. He quoted Cleveland as
opposing Senator Brice as regards the
Brice-Gorman act, and he also quoted
the Cincinnati Enquirer as declaring
that a veto by Cleveland would "be a
cleaning up of much rubbish and un
cleanliness in the Democratic house
hold." Then he quoted the Ohio Dem
ocratic platform of 1894, favoring fur
ther reductions in the tariff, and
asked: 4Is this 'rubbish and unclean
liness in the Democratic household to
stand, and that which was a year ago
unworthy and impure and a stench in
the Democratic nostrils now to be ac
cepted as worthy and pure?"
Has the Democratic party of Ohio
changed its views since September,
1S94, and is now willing that the pro
tective duties, which are retained in
the Brice-Gorman-Wilson act, shall re
main, and the law be a permanent set
tlement of the tariff question? Is a
law, using the language of Mr. Cleve
land, 'which puts the wool of the
farmer on the free list and the pro
tection of tariff on the iron, ore and
coal of corporations and capitalists' to
receive the approval of the people of
Ohio by their votes in November next?
"My friends, there is one objection
to the law, if there were no others,
which must make its permanency im
possible. It fails to raise the needed
revenues for the daily expenses of the
government. That would condemn it
in the judgment of the American peo
ple, whatever difference they might
have on the question of protection and
free trade. The law, from the date of
its enactment to the present time and
it is now a year old has not raised
enough money from customs duties
and internal revenue combined to meet
the neeessary expenses of the govern
ment.' Taking up the financial question he

fiscal policy of Mr. Cleveland's admin

ance of the gold reserve now depends
upon a syndicate of foreign and home
capitalists, who are under contract to

known to the laws and unrecognized
in the government, hired to sustain

publican party stands where it has
always stood for good money,
whether gold, silver or paper, all to

times and everywhere to be equal and

measure the exchanges of the people
and deceive and cheat nobody. It
must be sound and strong as the gov
ernment itself and as free from stain

Secretary Carlisle's Annual Report Ex

statement of the operations of the i

Donu syndicate, ii is unaersxoou mat
it will contain several interesting facts
in connection with the transaction
which are as yet aly known to the
parties immediately concerned in the
negotion of the loan. The most im
portant problem the secretary will
have to deal with is that which
looks to the re'.ief of the treas
ary, involving a radical change
in the financial system. The desired
relief can only be obtained by the aid
of congress, and the secretary realizes
that it is going to be a very difficult
task to suggest a remedy which will
meet the approval of the Republican
house, with Reed, a candidate for the
presidency, in the speaker's chair. It
probably will be the policy of the Re
publicans to confuse, rather than un
tangle, the financial complications
during the next congress, for they are
counting upon making considerable
political capital out of the money ques
tion in the presidential contest.
The Valkyrie Ruled to Have Lost Be

New York, Sept. 12. When the tug
Walter Luckenbach, with the regatta
committee of the New York Yacht
club returned, S. Nicholson Kane,
chairman of the committee, said
that the protest on the alleged
fouling of the Defender by the
Valkyrie had been entertained
and that the regatta committee had
held a confenence in regard to the
matter while the tug was on her way
to the dock, but that no definite con
clusion had been arrived at.
This morning the committee held a
long meeting in private and heard ev
idence in regard to the collision and
late this aftei noon sustained the De
fender's protest and awarded the race
to her.
A Counter-Revolution.
Colon, Sept. 12. The remnant of .
the Ecudorean government is fleeing
from Quito toward the boundary of
Columbia, There, it is reported,
agents of the late government are en
listing men to take the field against j
President Alfaro. The latter, fearing
that a formidable reaction might be
fomented by these agents, has dis
patched an envoy to Colon to ask that
measures be taken to prevent the or
ganization of armed forces hostile to
him in this republic.
Prospects 11 right for Piatt.
New York, Sept. 12. The Repub

the 1,400 districts of the city to elect
delegates to the assembly district con

a eontest between the Piatt men and
the Brookfield or reform faction. The
result seems to have been a decisive
victory for Piatt.

The New Hoard lns.
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 1L The Jour
nal gives publicity to the following:
According to information secured by
this paper the Omaha fire and police
bill has been approved by the supreme
court and the formal opinion will soon
be rendered.
There has been much guessing as to
the opinion of the supreme court, now
in preparation, and predictions of all
kinds have been published from time
to time. At first it was reported that
Commissioner Irvine was writing the
opinion in the famous case. Then the
report was circulated broadcast that
the court had decided in favor of the
old board of police commissioners and
against the constitutionality of the new
law, and as a result of this report the
wires between Omaha and Lincoln
were kept hot with telegrams of in
quiry. Incidentally the life of Com
missioner Irvine at Omaha was made a
The Journal has information of a re
liable character, to the effect that the
court has decided the case in favor of
the new board of fire and police com
missioners. The opinion was expected
the latter part of last week, but one of
the judges sent to the state library for
additional legal works to be used in
preparing one part of the opinion, and
therefore the handing down of the de
cision was deferred. It is now expect
ed any day, but may be withheld until
the regular full session of the court
which convenes September 17.
Contrary to expectation, the opinion
will not be written by any one member
of the court commission. It will come
as the opinion of the court, and not as
the writing of any one man. Accord
ing to information at hand, the three
judges. Chief Justice Norval, Justice
Post and Justiee Harrison, have been
engaged in working on various points
in the case, and in addition the com
mission has been consulted by the

likely to arise in the future, so that the
litigants will not be left in the dark.
The material points are the constitu
tionality of the new fire and police law.
and the legality of the appointment of
the new fire and police board. The
opinion sustains both the constitution
ality of the law and the regularity of
the appointments which were made by
Attorney General Churchill and Land
Commissioner Russell, the third mem
ber of the appointing board refusing to
participate in the meeting after having j
had due notice. i
This information, which leaked out
yesterday, has caused considerable ex
citement and wherever it is known is
the one topic of conversation, but it
was not generally circulated in this
city and is said to be wholly unknown
in Omaha where the people are person
ally interested. The rendition of such
an opinion will be followed by the re
tirement of the old board.
The Notorious Kansan Parses Away In
an Asylum HU Record.
Atciiison, Kan., Sept. 1 . John N
Reynolds, the notorious ex-evangelist
and convict, died in the Osawatomie
asylum this morning, whither he was
taken about a year ago.
Reynolds first gained notoriety
about nine years ago, when he came
here and started a live stock insurance
company, which did up hundreds of
farmers. Previously he had been an
evangelist, but had been sent to the
Iowa penitentiary for criminally as
stiulting a member of the church

for his live stock swindle, and during
his confinement ran for state senator
and received over 500 votes.

"Twin Hells," which he sold exten
sively over the country after his re
lease. He traveled over the country
by wagon, stopping at every town and
giving a lecture in his prison garb.

over a year ago, and was never ra
tional afterward. He left a -wife and
several married daughters. He left

Dead at His Wife's lirave.
Chapman, Kan., Sept. 11. John

wife's grave in the Catholic cemetery,
where he had committed suicide
Wolves had eaten his face and bodj

Houghton, Mich.. Sept. 11. The
situation in the Osceola mine, where
fifty miners are entombed, remains

their lives. The shafts were finally

Brown listened to the proposition
and then gave it in detail to Sheriff
Stanley, who instructed him to en

Brown met the Taylor brothers the
next night and assured them that
he could and would fix it so
that they could escape, but that
as it would throw suspicion upon
him and the condemned murderers to
be seen conversing together, it
would be advisable to conduct
further -negotiations in writing.
They accepted the advice and as
the letters were received by Brown
they were submitted by him to Sheriff
Stanley, who, of course, knew what
