For some reason not apparent upon

CHICAGO , June 23 4 p. m. The
Journal's Cincinnati special says that
Tilden U on top this morning. He
beat Kelly in the committee on cre
dentials ana Tammany will be ex
cluded from participation in the pro
ceedings. His letter was a trap which
was set for and caught Kelly. Be
lieving Tilden entirely out ; of the
fight , Tammany unhesitatingly pledged
to support the iicoiineo. The pledge
was given the committee , whereupon
the cunning Sammy sat down on
Kelly and Tammany.

In further support of the statement
that Tildon is on top to-day , the Jour

graphs that probably , by preconcerted
arrangement , ininy prominent demo

their states urging Tiiden's nomina

When California was reached John
E. McElroth presented the name of

without fear , and his nomination

no place , position or patronage but
solely to sustain the nominees of the

adoption by the convention. As
tated in last night's dispatches this is
n substance reaffirming the planks of
he platform of 187G , together with an
dditional one expressive tf the ra-
pect and continued faith
n Mr. Tilden , for his
trnggle with the corruptions and sub
version of liberty perpetratsd by the
republican party , and protesting
against the great fraud of 1876. The
following are substantially the features
of the platform as reported : A de
cided hard money plank , ( the eilver
men were defeated in the meeting : )
condemnation of the presidential
fraud of 1876 , and calling the atten
tion of the country to the great dan *
Mr of frej ioititptV ; rf l * country

favor of liberal self government

cratic princip'es of Jackson and Jef

sustained and the interests c > f the en
tire poopld guarded ; a decbra
tion in favor of tariff aci
reform , and a suppression o
the present unjust custom house
duties ; a plank against Chinese irami-
gra < ion and * plank in favor of Euro
pean immigration ; a stiff declaratioi
against railroads and subsidies anc
land grants to railroad companiei anc
ether monopolies , and a declaration
that the public lands be reserved only

real and thorough civil service re
form , a declaration of respect for anc
confidence in the lofty patriotism and
noble celf abnegation of Mr. Tildenr
in withdrawing his nsme's's a candi
date from before the convention , and
thus offering himself ei a sacrifice to
the great principles of the unity ol
the democratic patty ; for this forget-
fulneEs of self he deserves the pro

pirty of the whole Union. The'report
will -presented to the convention

False Reasoning1.
Suppose * machine should fail to
> erform its work , and the owner , in-
itead ot trying to ascertain the cause
of failure and remedy It , should con
clude to run right along , and argue
that 01 the machine had heretofore
come around all right it would soon
IB so again. If a general and per-
nanent break-down ensued could any-
) ody be blamed but himself } 'Now ,
precisely this way do people act and
irgue when the "human machine" is
out of order. When the liver is
"torpid" - and bowels constipated
kvery one knows that Dr.
Plerce's Pleasant Purgative Pel-
eta afford prompt and perma
nent relief. Yet some guess the "ma
chine" will come around all right , and
do nothing. Could any system of
'aUe reasoning ba more pernicious ]
Suppose the blood be out of order aud
there be pimples , ulcers , or running
sores with scrofulous tnmnrs , swel *

guessing that the blood wonld purify
taelf , could anybody be blamed but

lent breakdown of health ensued ?

The otSer Black HiL's towns think
Rapid City is getting too pious for
anything , because eight of the mer
cantile houses of that place have pub
licly announced that hereafter they
will close their stores at ono o'clock
Sunday afternoons , and not rcopsn
until Monday morning.
Prosperous and industrious miners
have inaugurated a fashion in the
Hills that is liable to become all the
rage. They are sending for their
sweethearts to go there to enter the
marriage bond with them , instead of
going after them.
A party is running out the southern
boundary line of Pennington county.
Many are of the opinion that Haywatd
and the rich quartz and hydraulic
diggings of Iron creek are In Penning
ton instead of Custer county , and it is
the intention of the people to have
the question finally settled by instru
mental surveys.
There is trouble among the mem
bers of the Monticello mining compa
ny. The company has ono of the
most substantially constructed flumes
in the Hills on Rapid Ureek. The
stockholders on the ground are anx
ious to exteud the Humes to extensive
placer regions beyond the present
field , which the outside stockholders
regard as extensive enough.
The Stmd-by mill , at Rockford , is
reported , to bo a marvel of perfect
mechanism , aud a great succes ; . At
present 50 drops per minute , crushing
150 tons of ore par day , arenforced.
Six men supply the mill with ore , and
tbo total cost of mining and milling '

Busy and extensive preparations
are being made in all the principal
camps to celebra'o ' the national holi

The Homestako company has award
ed a Contract for flirnJaKmir.iriain y-'th
TTOUUiur iflelr mills at Lead City
for a year. The amount to ba paid
is $05,000. Tbo contract was taken
by the Northwestern Transportation
company , and they will proceed at
once to fill it. They have withdrawn
from their freight line fifty five of
their best mules and have moved them
up to Pennington , where they propose
making their headquarters. They
have already contracted for a large
amount of wood , and will put quite a
number of wood choppers on the
mountains at once. Tnis contract
was taken by the company more for
the purpose of employment for their
mules than anything ehe. During
the summer season mules cannot com
pete with cattle for freighting , as they
require grain all the time , while oxen
will keep in good condition on grass.
The wood will all be taken from Yel
low creek anJ the Whi'.ewcod , above
Pennington , which will necessitate
its being hauled over the divide. The
new read will now come in play. }
On the evening cf the 17th , about
midnight , the coach from Sidney to !
Deadwood had croesed French creek i
and was rolling along pleasantly and
comfortable , when it was stjppcd by >
three "road agents. " There was one ,
passenger , a lady , , on board and the |
leader exhibited considerable gallantry - i
try in trying to quiet her fears by assuring - i
suring her that they never molested I
ladies. The crowd did not make any
haul , which leads to the belief that
they were not professionals but
only loafers ; for had they been pro
fessionals they would have known
whether there was anything or not
Recently in Deadwood some littla
children went into an unoccupied
building and improvised a theatre in
the back room. Little Addie Goren-
flo , five years of age , daughter of one {
of the Gem theatre women , was '
dressed in a tarletan robe , with a
trail , and approaching the footlights ,
which were composed of short can
dles , too closely , her trail caught fire
and in a moment the little child was
enveloped in flames. Cries for help
'brought assistance and the child was
removed to her home. Although
badly burned it is supposed that she
will recover. From her knees to her
chin , including her arm ? , was a con
tinuous blister , and in many places
the skin was burned entirely off. Her
entire stomach was burned so deeply
that the skin came oil * with strips of
flesh adhering to it
There is great excitement in Custer
county over the discovery of what is
claimed to be the richest gold vein of
which there is record. The whole
Southtm Hills are in a blaza of
excitement over the great strike. The
first report was announced as follows
from Custer : "Tho greatest excite
ment ever known in this town pre
vails to-day. It is caused by the re
port of a rich strike , the richest that
hat ever been known in the Hills , be
ing in the form of a sixty-foot ledge
of ere , fairly besdangled and streaked
with gold , glistening in the sun. This
property is about three miles north of
Custer , on the Laughinp Water. The
town is deserted and every ona is
stampeding for the piece. The sight
is the most curious ever witnessed. "
Excitement in the Southern Hilla has
not abated since then , and the bonan
za reports are reaffirmed. A Mr.
Woodward is the lucky man this time ,
and his years of unrequited toil have
thus in a moment been crowned with
success. The ledge seems to be of
great magnitude and the ore is liter
ally rlive wiih free gold.
