A. P. ft.-
JODGE STEVENS KEEPING DP THE
FIGHT AGAINST THE OHIO MAN.
A FIGHT FOR PRINCIPLE-
McKinley Ii Declared to Be the Very
Weakest Han the Republican Con
vention Could Nominate Because
of this Opposition of the
Order His Boom Has
Beached Its Zenith.
Washington, Mav 6. Judge J. H.
D. Stevens, chairman of the Supreme
judiciary board -and of - the National
.advisory board of the A. P. A., which
will meei here next Tuesday simul
taneously with the National A. P. A.
convention, said to-day: '"The A. P.
A. will assuredly take a hand in the
presidential election. The part our
organization will take is .not to ad
vance the interests of any particular
candidate. We are making this fight
for principles, and the ambitious in
dividuals do not concern us.
- "McKinley is the very weakest man
the Republican party could nominate.
I am a Republican and a protectionist
of the stalwart sort, but the objec
tions to McKinley are too vital to be
ignored. I can produce affidavits that
charge him with having said, while
governor of Ohio, that, while person
ally he had no use for a Roman Catho
lic, yet it was necessary to cater to
that church, inasmuch as it was the
'strongest and most perfect political
organization in this country,' aDd that
any party that opposed it would go
down to certain defeat No man who
is weak enough to talk like that is fit
, lor the White house. In my opinion,
his boom has reached its zenith, and
I have no idea that he will be the
nominee of his party."

Sends Out a Circular.
Kansas Cur, Mo., May 6. The
Kansas City council of the A. P. A.

gives no indication of weakening; in
stead it calls on members to stand
by it. ;

After Eating Oysters His Career.
London, May ti. While presiding
at a meeting of his nitrate company
in the Woolpack building, Colonel T.
J North, the "Nitrate king" fainted in
his chair and died at 4 o'clock. Al
though death is believed to have been
due to heart disease, it is stated that
shortly before his demise he ate a
dozen oysters, sent to him from a res
taurant in the vicinity of the com
pany's offices. The shells have been
kept and may be examined. A couple
of doctors were summoned almost im
mediately after the colonel fainted,
but their efforts were useless. There
will be a post mortem examination.

financial circles and also created a
sensation when it was announced in
the House of Commons.

Ruppert, the noted beauty specialist,
is dead from consumption.
Amy B. Mielton was born here in

ment and became later a saleswoman
in a music house. While employed in
the latter capacity she made the ac
quaintance of an old woman, who re
vealed to her a secret facial remedy
and urged her to engage in its manu
facture. Miss Shelton did so and made
New York her headquarters. Her
success was such that she was sum
moned to England to treat Queen Vic
toria and succeeded here also. This
made her position secure and she es
tablished agencies throughout Eng
land and Europe. She lectured in a
number of European cities also.
Miss Sheltcn's first marriage was to
a rich Philadelphia German named
Ruppert, whose name she retained,
although she was subsequently di
vorced from him. Later she married
Richard Armstrong, an Englishman,
with whom she lived until she died.

came back to Pleasant Hill to spend
the rest of her life, but the end was
not long in coming.

ADDRESSED BY KRUCER.
Warmly Congratulated by the Boers on
31a Diplomatic Victory Over Secretary
Chamberlain His Speeeh Very
Moderate and Conservative, .
Meeting Every Situation
Firmly and Squarely.
Pretoria, South African Republic,
May 6. The Volksraad (parliament of
the Transvaal) was opened to-day by
President Kruger. Great interest was
taken in the proceedings because of
the recent disclosures of the cipher
telegrams exchanged between Cecil
Rhodes, then premier of Cape Colony,
and others who took part in the Jame
son raid. The town was crowded
with Boers.many of whom had ridden
hundreds of miles to be present The
vicinity of the parliameat building
was crowded with a picturesque gath
ering" of Boers long before the hour
set for the opening, and the commen
dations passed upon the diplomacy of
"Oom Paul," who has so cleverly out
fenced the British secretary of state
for the colonies, Joseph Chamberlain,
and is now so completely master of
tbe situation that he towers head and
shoulders over everybody and every
thing connected with South Africa,
were many and warm.
The President, in his speech, said in
brief that the recent events, due to
malvolence and selfish objects, had
seriously interrupted the rest and
peace of the South African republic,
adding: "It has ever been my wish
to promote the development and pros
perity of the republic in the most
peaceable manner possible, so I am
firmly convinced that it is your sin
cere wish to co-operate with me in
this policy and that you expect with
the fullest confidence that tbe session
of the Volksraad will contribute in no
small manner to tbe. restoration
of peace in this state in order that,
through our united co-operation,, our
country may flourish and prosper for
the benefit of all."
The president then touched upon tbe
foreign relations of the South African
republic, the most delicate portion of
the speech, saying: "In spite of past
troubles the republic continues to
maintain friendly relations with for
The president then turned to the
relations between the South African
republic and its sister republic, the
Orange Free State, remarking: "I
hope that a meeting between repre
sentatives of the Orange Free State
and representatives of the South Af
rican republic will shortly be held and
plans for a closer union between ' the
two countries will be discussed."
This utterance of President Kruger
was looked upon as confirming the re
port that negotiations have for some
time been on foot for an alliance,
offensive and defensive, between the
South African republic and the Orange
Free State to resist any attempt upon
the part of Great Britain to interfere
with the internal affairs of either
The President's speech was- very
well received, being considered most
moderate in tone, although meeting
every situation firmly and squarely.

SEVEN CRUSHED TO DEATH
A Cincinnati Building Wrecked by Oat
Cincinnati. Ohio, May 6. At 8
o'clock I ail night the five story build
ing, 430 and 432 Walnut street, be
tween Fourth and Fifth streets, was
blown to the ground by an explosion
of a gasoline enciue. The shock was
so terrific that it was felt' all over the
city, and not one brick upon another
is left in the front and rear walls of
the building, while the adjacent
buildings are badly damaged and the
glass in the windows in the Gibson
house and the large Johnson building
across the atreet were all broken.
The glass was broken out of street
cars that were passing at the time,
and one of the cars was badly
wrecked, but none of the passengers
wat seriously hurt Ali the horses in
the immediate neighborhood broke
from their fastenings and ran away,
and there was not only intense ex
citement, but the greatest confusion.
Seven were crushed to death and
twenty injured, amomg whom several
fatalities may develop.
The family of Adolph Drachs suf
fered most severely. Drachs and his
wife are numbered among the dead,
his 5-year-old daughter is dead and
his 3-year-old boy Is believed to be
dying. Noland Davit, a traveling
man for the Columbia Carriage com
pany, of Hamilton, Ohio, and two
others, unidentified, complete the list
of those known to be dead.
A most touching scene occurred
when Fireman John McCarthy found
his brother pinioned under a heavy
beam and begging the me a above to
kill him. McCarthy said there were
three other men near him and they
were alive. The most heroic efforts
to liberate these sufferers were con
tinued up to midnight
Jack McCarthy, Peter Burns and
Charles Tilley were taken out of the
ruins about midnight, but it is feared
that none of them will live. .
Workmen report at 12:45 that one of
Mrs. Drachs' children was certainly
still alive, as they could plainly hear
it calling "mamma."

Newport News, Va., May a. About
1,000 men stopped work and demanded

the part of the employes was brought
about by the new time system, which
went into effect yesterday. This sys

the bible said men and women were
