and Bewail Electors
Populists at Abilene.
H0TCHIN8OX, Aug. o. The party
eadars did not arrive at the Demo
cratic convention hall until long after
the time set for calling the convention
to order. At 11:40 o'clock Chairman
Bacon of the central committee rapped
for order and presented the Rev.
Alfred Brown, rector of the Episcopal
church in this city, who made a brief
prayer while the delegates stood.
Secretary Pepperill read the call for
the convention, and then a letter from
W. J. Bryan was read as follows: ,
"Lincoln, Neb.July 31. 1896. Frank

received with cheers. He thanked the
convention lor the honor of his eleo
tion to the chairmanship, and referred
to the report of Democratic victory in
Alabama, which brought forth pro

the question of majority and minority

The secretary was instructed to ex

after which J. C. Orr moved that the
usual committees be appointed, with
one member from each district. This
was at once adopted.
After the appointment of meeting
places for the various committees the
convention adjourned until a o'clock.
As the delegates were rising from
their chairs some one shouted for a
speech from David Overmyer. Almost
instantly the hall was in an uproar.
Overmyer was escorted ' to the plat
form by a score of delegates, when the
applause had subsided he said: "Since
we last met at Topeka there has been
a convention at Chicago. That con
vention performed a miracle. It has
always been held as axiomatic in pol
itics that a party cannot correct in
ternal evils tending towards, its de
struction. Yet at Chicago the Demo
cratic party not only did this, but
more. All forms of class destruction,
of money power, of precedent and all
forms of organized power were over
turned, the people rose in their might
and declared themselves. This was not
an instantaneous development. It was
the result of several years. It re
, Jauired time to tass Democracy under
v the yoke of plutocracy. The miracle
I performed was that of self regenera
' tion, and the party now stands
purged from its self-destructive ele
ments, for the common people of
America. (Cheers.) There is a famil
iar saying that the unexpected always
happens. It did happen. There is
another saying that man purposes and
God disposes. This (pointing to the
picture of William J. Bryan) is God's
disposition. (Prolonged cheers.) Tak
ing man as man, William J. Bryan Is
the representative American. He has
not his superior. He will be the con
queror of every heathen part of our
land, like the young conquerors of
Overmyer further eulogized the
staudaid bearer, at every period be
ing interrupted by cheers. He spoke
for fifteen minutes on the money
question, strongly asserting the ne
cessity of free and unlimited coinage
at the ratio of 16 to 1. In closing he
said: "William J. Bryan is as certain
to be elected as election day will
come." And when the wild applause
greeting this assertion had ceased, he
continued with skilfully modulated
tone: '-Provided we Democrats make
no fatal mistake. See to it that in the
state of Kansas there is fusion on
electors for Bryan and SewalL Let
this convention carry out the known
will of the Democratic party, the Peo
ple's party and a majority of the Re
publican party."
Candidate Scheming for Position

Abilene, K;t'. Aug. 5. It is agreed
among the party managers that the

sire for fusion with the Democrats.
Borne go so far, as has already been
published, as to express a willingness
to give the Democrats alt of the elec
tors in consideration of Democratic
indorsement of the state ticket to be
nominated here.
About one-half of the delegates
have arrived and have been busy with
caucuses and conferences in the pretty
park in front of the hotel since 6
o'clock. The majority of sentiment
seems to favor Bryan and Bewail
electors, but a strong following led
by John W. Breidenthal, Harrison
Eelley and J. M. Allen, are fight
ing for a Bryan and Watson ticket.
Others favor a . division of the
ticket, five electors to each party with
possibly a Democrat and a free silver
Republican on the State ticket. Such
an arrangement, however, would only
come by the grace of the Democrats,
who, it is admitted by the more prac
tical of the Populist politicians, are
in a position to dictate terms as
to electors. They may take all or
divide the ticket as they may see fit
It is only fcr the sake of appearing
to keep faith with the Populists of the
Southern states that the proposition
to give Watson representation on the
electoral ticket finds favor. It es
pecially is desired to conciliate the
Texas Populists who will hold their
convention to-morrow,, and Breiden
thal is very anxious to wire them that
Kansas has done the fair thing.
Other politicians are not bo kindly
disposed toward the Southern breth
ren. They say that the middle-of-the
road leaders cannot hold the Southern
Populists in line; that 50 per cent of
the rank and file will vote for Bryan
and SewalL Among the candidates
who take this ground is Colonel W. A.
The news received this morning that
the Democrats had carried Alabama
by a sweeping majority has strength
ened the position of advocates of Sew
all electors. It is accepted as signifi
cant that the Populists of the South,
even with Republican fusion, are not
equal to the task of turning down the
Democratic electors. R. W. Turner of

lican, says that if the Populists fail to
nominate or indorse a full set of Bry
an and Sewall electors the free silver
Republican committee will nominate
one and advocate it before the people.
All of the candidates for governor,
with the exception of George M. Mun
ger, are here. They are W. A. Harris,
L. D. Le welling, J. W. Leedy, L. P.
King and George Campbell. Mr. Hun
ger is expected to-night The Harris
boom was given a little backset and
the Levelling boom a boost this morn
ing by the Douglas county delegates,
who openly declared that they would
not be bound by their instructions
for Harris, but would support Le wel
ling. Both Harris and Lewelling are mak
ing an open fight. The other candi
dates are quietly working, hoping
that the two leading men will succeed
in destroying each other.

Chicago, Aug. 5. It is estimated by
those in a position to know that the
Moore Bros, have lost between 94,000,

good guess here to say that the race
is between Bolte and O'Meara and
that the Stone-Stevens crowd will try
to pull Bolte through. Bolte is a
German, and since the Republicans
have placed Rudolph Hirzel on their
ticket the Democrats are desirous of
making a bid for the German vote.

Washington, Aug. 5. The weather

Northern Louisiana, Northern Texas,
Arkansas, Oklahoma and the Indian

maximum temperature of 104 degrees
occurred on August 1, which were, re

any previous record at these stations

The Slae of the Majority In Alabama the
Ooly Question Fraud! Charged.
Montgomery, Ala., Aug. 5. The size
of the Democratic majority seems to
be all that remains in doubt with re
gard to the result of yesterday's state
election, though Populist leaders are
claiming frauds of the grossest kind.
Because of the slow process of count
ing the votes under the new ballot
law, returns are necessarily slow, but
there is no doubt of a complete Dem
ocratic victory. Incomplete returns
from about half the counties, so far
received indicate Democratic gains in
all but Mobile and Macon. In the
former the Democrats appear to have
lost some 500 votes by stay-at-homes,,
but the county is still in the Demo
cratic column by 500 majority. In
Macon county, which gave Oates a
majority of 800 in '.694, the result is
doubtful -
To-day the lowest Democratic esti
mate places the majority at 25,000 and
the highest at 00,000. The legislature
is safely Democratic by at least two
thirds. The Populist leaders in Birmingham
claim that thousands of fictitious
votes were cast in the "black belt"
and they threaten that if Goodwyn is
not elected they will organize the
Populists of the State against Bryan
and carry Alabama for McKinley in

Bottom Drops Oat of the Diamond Match
and New York Bleenlt Speculations
Biggest Deal of the Rind In Ills
tory Many Millions Lost
Moore Brother the
Principal Victims.
Cihcago, Aug. 5. The speculative
deal in Diamond Match and New York
Biscuit stock has come to an end. The
Moore Bros, have failed. The great
est speculation ever known in Chicago
bas culminated in the failure of the
people who were behind the deal.
The ' Chicago stock exchange ad
journed at 10 o'clock this morning for
an indefinite period. This action was
decided upon at a meeting held last
evening at which were present the
members of the stock exchange, gov
erning committee and a number of
prominent capitalists.
The speculative deal of which the
failure is the culmination is by all
odds the most important In the history
of Chicago stock exchange affairs. It
began early in this year. The stock
of the Diamond Match Company had
been selling along liiO for quite a time
and there had been no special activity
in the market Just prior to the Ven
ezuela incident, the tip had got out in
inside circles that there were to be
some important European develop
ments in connection with Diamond
Ma ten affairs and the buying of the
stocks commenced by strong people.
The Venezuelan panic interfered with
the speculation and the stock dropped
during the general decline at that
time to 115. From there the rise
started which is the most remarkable
in the history of the exchange.
A strong group of speculators,
headed by John H. Moore and Will
iam II. Moore, began buying the
stock. It moved up with scarcely a
halt The bears occasionally endeav
ored to interfere with the rise, but
they each time found that there was
both speculative genius and financial
strength behind the market, which
was unlike anything in local specula
tive affairs. The rise went on for a
considerable time before the general
public had any intimation of what
was really behind the advance.
When the decline in stock markets
generally came, following the Demo
cratic convention, the stock was sell
ing at 234. The values of other se
curities tumbled day after day, but
Match was held steadily without so
much as a fractional decline. The
Moores bought the stock with con
fidence that inspired confidence in
others. The people who had the best
information about the company's
prospects seemed to feel absolutely
certain of the value of the security,
and prices were held through all the
sharp fluctuations in other stocks
fluctuations which carried West Chi
cago to the lowest point in its history,
and marked startling declines in all
other securities.
Yesterday the stock was held with
hardly a waver at 222, but there was
an outpouring of long stock which led
the keen observer of the market to
fear that the load might become too
heavy, and the events later in the
afternoon proved that those fears were
The deal in Diamond Match was
only part of this great speculative op
eration. The Moore Bros, had organ
ized the New York Biscuit company
several years ago, after the first great
success of the Diamond Match com
pany. The panic of 1693 had hit the
biscuit company severely as it d id all
the other industries and the stock was
far below par. The success which
was met with in a speculative manip
ulation of Diamond Match led to a
desire to see what could be done with
New York Biscuit and that stock was
taken several months ago and ad
vanced from 70 to 108.
From that it dropped back to 92,and
for weeks was held close about that
figure, in spite of the sharp declines in
other securities. Enormous quantities
of this stock were also poured upon
the market, but they were taken with
the same steadiness whieh marked the
action of Diamond match. The accum
ulations, however, represented a
great sum in time, and the operations
in the stock will add largely to the
total of the amount involved. '
It is not at the present time possible
to make any estimate of what the
figure ia The Moore's have unques
tionably purchased an enormous line
of New York Biscuit and Diamond
Match. The high price at which
Match has been selling makes the
sum involved extremely large. The
capital stock of the Diamond Match
Company is $11,000,000, and of New
York Biscuit $9,000,000.
