JsniAXAroi.is, Iml.,May S. Tomlln
son litiU, when tlio Republican state
convention met this morning', was
pally decorated with hundreds of lings
and banners. Just before tho con
vention was called to order 5,000
people wore In tho hall.
It was J0:lu o'clock when Stato
Chairman J. K. Gowdy began calling
tho convention to order, but it was
fifteen minutes later ero the invocation
was begun by tho Rev. D. It. Lucas of
Kx Secretary of tho Navy Richard
W. Thompson was reported for jier
maucut eliairman with a rousing
cheer, and General Stormont was
named for secretary. The report was
unanimously adopted and whon tho
white haired "Uncle Diclc" Thomp
son assumed tlio gavel ho was
greeted with a rousing recoptlon.
JJes-pito his eighty-eight years,
lie delivered a stirring speech which
disposed of tho Democratic party to
the entire satisfaction of tho cio'wd,
and vigorously predicted u sweeping
victory for Republican principles in
the coming election. Then lie declared
that tlio next Congicss should provido
tlio ilrst tiling for adequate protection,
and went on: "My friends, there is
one man who is eminently fitted to
seo that this country is given protec
tion; one man who is identified above
nil others with the policy of protection.
(Wild cheers). I don't wonder at tho
enthusiasm of tho country for that
mail, at tlio general demand of tho
people for Ills nomination for tho
nomination of McKinloy. (Continued
dicei'in,,'). I know MoKinley. I honor
McKinlcy. I am for MoKinley."
When Mr. Thompson mentioned
General Harrison's name tho enthusi
asm showed that there was no inten
tion to siighttho Indiana man.
At tlio conclusion of Colonel Thomp
son's speech there wore loud cries of
"Harrison, ' but tho ex-president did
not appear, and tho report of tho com
mittee on credentials was submitted
and accepted without contest.
Then came the reading of tho plat
form and resolutions.
These lauded the record of tlio .Re
publican party, especially that por
tion under President Ilurrisou; de
clared for a protective tariff for wage
worker's and producers; demanded
honest money, not inferior to the
money of tho most enlightened na
tions of the earth; favored tlio use of
silver only under sucli regulations
that the parity with gold can bo main
tained; opposed free and Independent
sliver coinage; demanded rigid immi
gration laws and called for a liberal
construction of pension laws.
i-ai'patiox ron m'kixi.ky.
Tho resolutions closed as follows:
"Relieving as wo do in n protective
taritr, tho leadine issue befoto the
people, we favor tho nomination as
president of tho United States of a
man who perfectly represents a pro
tective tariff and the cardinal princi
ples of tho Republican party; a man
who lias devoted his life to the defence
of hi1-, country in war and in peace;
ono who, at tf, fought with Hayes and
Crook and Sheridan at Antictam and
in tlio Shenandoah in do fen. so of our
llag against foes within, and for four
teen years in Congress contended
against our country's foes from with
out, beating back British free trade
and aggression, which finally, un
der tlio present Democratic t.d
ministration, obtained possession of
our markets and has almost destroyed
our industries; a man who, with 'the
rcsistlcs-i shibboleth, 'protection nnd
prosperity,' has challenged the atten
tion of the commercial world and won
tlio support of every patriotic work
ingman of our country; whoso life and
work, open as a book, aro in them
selves a platform, and whose very
name is magic that loyal American
citizen, soldier, statesman and Chris
tian gentleman, William McKinloy of
Ohio; and tho delegates to the Repub
lican national convention selected by
this body are directed to cast their
vote for Wtl'lam MoKinley as fre
quently and continuously as there is
auvltonc of ills nomination."
Tlio enthusiasm of tho crowd be
came intenso when tho chairman
reached tho McKinloy resolution. At
the naming of the" Ohio candidate
thero was a wild cheer, which, when
it subsided, was mot with vigorous
counter cries of "Harrison." for
several moments tho opposing forces
' howled for their favorites. When the
climax was reached and tho phrase
"directed to vote for William MoKin
ley" was read tho cheers broke loose
After order had been partially re
stored, a motion to adopt was made
amid a lively turmoil. Owing to the
great confusion during the adoption
of the resolutions, it was impossible to
Arrive lit any accurate estimate of tho
vote of tho opposing force.-,, tho ayes
Icing reinforced by cries, from the
galleries and eorridors, as were also
tho nays, but tho indications wero
tnat tho vote was about three to ono
for the resolutions. Tho chairman de
clared the platform adopted.

Tho remarkablo featuro of tho af
fair was tho sudden manner in which
the whole matter was apparently dis
missed from mind by tho crowd.,
None of tho party leaders cared to
discuss the matter after it was all
over. All expressed hearty admira
tion for tho convention's Presidential
favorite, and all declared that Indiana
would enthusiastically and earnestly
support tho Ohio candidate, despito
pabt differences. Tho ca.y victory of
the Mukin'ey men was, however, a
great burprlso for the opposition
lorces, who could scarcely explain it

HOLMES IS HANQED.
Tlio Multl-Murilrrrr Avowed Innocence
to tlio Last.
X'JUt.ADPt.fiiiAi May 9. IT. H.
Holmes, probably tho most notorious
criminal of our time, was hanged In
Moyamonsing prison at !0:l,lf o'clock
this morning, but It was not until a
half hour lator that ho was pro
nounced dead, though his neck was
broken by tho fall.
Tho marvelous nerve of tho man
never deserted him to tho 'very end.
Even on tho scaffold ho was probably
tho coolest person In tho assemblage.
Just beforo tho trap was sprung, ho
"Gentlemen, I have very few words
to say, in fact I would make no re
marks at this time, except that by not
speaking I would appear to ncqulesco
in my execution. I only wish to say
that tho extent of my wroug doing in
taking human Ufo consisted in tho
death of two women, they havinrr died
at my hands as tho result of a crimi
nal operation. I wish to stato hero,
so thoro can bo no chanco of misun
derstanding, that I aut not guilty of
takiug the lives of any of tho I'eiUol
family tho three children nnd Ilenja
rain, tlio father of whoso death 1 was
convicted aud for which I am to-day
to bo hanged. That Is all I hnvo to
llolmcs Bpent tho greater part of
his last night on earth writing letters.
At midnight ho went to bed mid slept
soundly until 0 o'olock this morning,
when it took two calls to awaken
him, Then lie received a visit from
his spiritual advisers, Fathors Dalov
and MnePeak, of tho Church of tho
Annunciation, who administered tho
last sacrament aud did not leave him
until nearly 9 o'clock. During their
absenco ho ato a breakfast of eggs,
dry toast and coifce. At 10:02 o'olock
tho sheriff called together tho olllcial
jury and after each man had answered
to his namo and subscribed to the
certillcate, tho march to tho gallows
At 1 0:03 Holmes and tho priests
mounted tho platform. A moment of
prayor elapsed, and then Holmes
stepped lo tho front of tho scaffold,
and, resting his hands on tho rail bo
faro him, mado his statement of inno
cence It was received in absoluto
Two minutes later Holmes had fin
ished his valedictory. Then, at a silent
signal from tho priests, he bent to his
knees and his eyes wnro fixed on tho
erucillx, clasped in His thin hands.
Until 10:12 tho prayer continued.
Immediately afterwards ho arose,
shook hands with tho priests, and his
lawyers, and in a firm voico bado
Without an instant's delay Holmes's
hands wero bound behind him and tho
black cap adjusted. Sheriff Clement
placed the noose about his neck and,
after an instant of stillness, the crack
of the bolt rang out like a pistol shot
and tho murderer had fallen to his
doom. Consciousness left him in
stantly, said the doctors, although his
heart continued a feoblo beat for fif
teen or twenty minutes.
Holmes's letters of farewell wero
addressed to his wife in Oilmnnton,
N. II., nnd Georgiana Yoke of Frank
lin, Ind., tho so-called third wife. Ho
also penned u letter of instruction to
Mr. Rotau, his counsel. Absolute
secrecy is maintained regarding tho
contents of these letters.
Father Daloy knows, if any living
man does, whether or not Holmes
wout into eternity with a Ho on his
lips, for to him Holmes made a final
confession, but what was eon Tided to
tho priest Is a secret of tho confes
sional and will never bo mndo public.
At l'i:30 o'olock the big iron doors in
tho rear of the prison swung in and an
undertaker's wagon rolled out. In it
was a black casket containing the
body. Tho wagon drove rapidly to
Mount Morinh cemetery, whero tho
coffin was placed in a vault

Cr.KVEi.ASD, Ohio, May S. When
tho conference met to-day, as soon as
some routine business had been dis
posed of Dr. W. J. Kynett, chairman
of the committee on woman eligibility,
presented tho report of tho majority
of tho committee. This declared that
tho committee was agreed that tho
eligibility of women to vote in this
convention was a constitutional one,
and that the general conferenco had
tho power to intorpret the constitu
tion. Tito coinmittoo recommended a
modification of the constitution,
changing the qualifications of a dele
gate by using tlio words lay delcgato
instead of laymen, thereby making
tho admission of women legal, and
that this proposed amendment be re
ferred to the annual conference of tho
following year and that a two-thirds
vote of tho general conferenco and a
three-fourths vote, of the annual con
ferenco be required to enact this
recommendation into a law.

had spoken, by a vote of 425 to W tho

THE BELLE OF THE AFTER CHURCH PARADE.,
or two until he Is ready to marry.
Helen is fond of him, but docs not see
her way clear to deprive herself of
other society without good reasons, and
asks what sho should do. Answer:
First of all, consult your own heart.then
your head. If your engagement Is a
settled and understood affair, and you
lovo the young man well enough to
wait for him, there la nothing more to
be said, But it you are not formally
engaged, and he wants you to wait on
an uncertainty, do not do it unless you
love him well enough to give up every
thing else for him. Long engagements
are unwise, and "understandings" are
worse. Thoy mean much lo some peo
ple and but little to others. One of the
Interested persons is almost certain to
suffer. It Is much better for young per
sons to marry than to wait for better
times. If they have the right spirit
and nre truly attached to each other,
there will bo but little hardship In
working for their common prosperity.
Dut do not marry without, first,
respect, and then tho love that Is a de
light and a perpetual comfort when
the object Is worthy.
Anxious Mary wants to know what
sort of presents would he appropriate
for the principal of a public school.
The gift is to be made by a graduating
class. Also, gifts for class teacher (lady),
German teacher (man) and the janitor.
Also, how should a fourteen-year-old
graduate have her dress made. It Is
to bo of flue Swiss, How can teeth be
made snowy white? Answer: Teachers
are especially fond of books. If there
Is any reference book they may have
expressed a wish for, nothing could bo
more appropriate. One class gave a
teacher a handsome cabinet clook. An
other gavo a pretty and commodious
desk. A writing set is a most accepta-
hie present To a janitor ono might
glvo a gold coin, or a small sllkan bag
with Borne silver, nnd with tho request
that ho use It for somo Irlnklet ho would
liko. As for tho graduating dress, tho
best tasto demandH that It bo mado
with tho utmost simplicity. A plain,
full skirt or ono with sovoral tucka
would ho suitable. Tho waist might bo
mado full and trlmmod with lace edg
ing In a cascade down tho front and la
opaulcts nnd full collar or yoke. Tho
sleeves should ho in full bishop shnpo,
