Probably one or two of the Injured will die.
Tfie work of rescue was begun as soon as
possible. When the blinding clouds of
steam had subsided the trainmen and priests
rallied the mon together and the dead and
Injured wcro taken from the ruins of the
engine , Pullmd'n and first class coaches , and
cared for wherever temporary quarters could
be found. The women of the party mustered
as best they could and inlnUtercd to the
wants of the passengers. They tore off
their underclothing and made bandages for
the gaping wounds and tried In the absence
of surgcoiiR to staunch tha How of blood and
properly cleanse the hurts. Word was sent
to Montreal nnd ordcis from there were
Issued to Levls to send out a force of
doctors from Quebec to attend the wounded
and a fnrco of men to clear up the track.
The special train reached hero at an early

that could bo mnved were placed on board
; v a car and sent cast to Levls , where they
wore to bo cared for In the hospitals.
U Is hard to Hay wboro the blame for the
accident rests. It lias been suggested that
Engineer McLcod might have dozed off to
deep and thus missed t > eclng the semaphore
and was unconscious of his whereabouts.
A strict Investigation will bo held at oner
to determine where the responsibility rests ,
The second person taken from the train
bearing the wounded , at Levis , was Rev.
Dr. Dlgnan , euro of St. George's , Windsor ,
who died Just as he was taken from the

armory at noon today , Grand Exalted Ruler
E. B. Hay of Washington , D. C. , presiding.
The roll call showed that 151 out ot a total
of 275 lodges * In the country were represented ,
Including all the largest lodges , except those
located at Cincinnati , Louisville , St. Louts
and Buffalo. In his reply to the addrecs of
welcome extended by the mayor , Grand Ex
alted Ruler Hay Indicated that the peace
negotiations will be Immediately brought before -
fore the grand lodge. H Is only a question
of arranging detail ; now as to the general
terms of settlement of all differences be
tween the two factions.
When the convention assembled this even
ing the Armory hall was crowded. During
the noon hour the question ot bringing up
the factional fights began and the Hay ann
Detwller factions was discussed , but It was
finally decided to lay It over until tomor
row. This question will not occupy much
time , as It Is pretty much settled that there
will bo no fight. Detwller , the grand ex
alted ruler of the Buffalo faction , met Sam

action , aud taking his own 11. P. O. E.
iadgo from bis own grcast , pinned It on
ilarttn'fl lapel. This seems to bo the gen-
ral feeling among the delegates.
The first business before the convention
his afternoon was the reading of the grand
iecretary's report. The reports show that
wenty-three new lodges were admitted dur-
ng the past year , nine being from the
UifTalo faction. The total receipts during
he year wcro $9,000 and there are $2,000
et remaining In the treasury.
After this report had been read Grand
Exalted Ruler Hay's report was delivered ,
to spoke almost an hour. Ho said the nntl-
lub , anti-Sunday legislation endorsed by
.ho order at a previous session was con
rary to the principles of the order. Ho
ilso paid a tribute to the theatrical profes
ilon as the founders of the crdcr and said
.hat this class ot members wcro still nc
.Ively engaged In working for the good of
.ho Elks. During the course of his remarks
.ho grand exalted ruler outlined a plan
whereby a supreme lodko might bo created
but no recommendation was made. The

OTTAWA , Ont. , July 9. A considerable
ministerial crisis has developed In the Do
minion Parliament over the Manitoba schoo
question. Rumors of the resignation o
Hon. A. O. Quemet , minister of public
works ; Sir Adolph Caron , postmaster gen *
crral , and Hon. A. R. Rangers , minister ol
agriculture , have been In circulation
These three ministers are the only Frencl
Canadians In the cabinet am
they were said to have resigned
on account of the government's
policy of delay In the matter of
remedial legislation for Manitoba. The
French ministers , backed up by
the twenty-seven French-Canadians
In the House of Commons have all along
been demanding remedial legislation. When
the cabinet decided to first negotiate with
Mpnltoba with a view to arriving at a con-
cesilon , the thrco French ministers threat
ened to resign nnd went so far as to hand
their resignations to Sir Mackenzie Bowel 1 ,
the prime minister. These resignations , how
ever , were handed In with the understanding
that they were not to be acted upon until

At the evening session the church was

prevailing. Dr. A. G. Lane of Chicago
vice president , presided , and Prof. N. Mur
ray Butler , president of the association
gave his annual address , "What Knowledgi
Is of Most Worth. "
"Tho student of history Is struck with th
complexity of modern thought. From th
dawn of philosophy to the great revival o
learning the lines of development arc com
paratlvely simple and direct. During Urn
period one may trace , step by step , the evolti
tlon of the main problems of thought ami
action , and discover readily how the theorle
of the seers stood the test of application by
the men of deeds. At Athens during th
great fifth century the Inner life was th
chief part of life Itself. In that age of tin
world life was simple ; and often , because o
Its refinement and Independence , more re
llectlvc than with us. Men's Ideals wer
moru sharply defined and more easily reallz
able. They did not doubt that the world ex
isted for them and their enjoyment.
"In these modern days all this Is changed
Man has come to doubt not only his su
premacy In the universe , but even his im
portance. He finds that , far from dwelling
at the center of things , he Is but the 'denizen
of an obscure and tiny speck of cosmlcu
matter quite Invisible amid the inuumerjb !
throng of ( laming suns that make up ou
galaxy. ' A host of new knowledges his np
pealed to human sympathy and Interest , am
has taxed them to the utmost.
"In cur own century two great masters o
thought have come forward , the German
Hegel and the Englishman Herbert Spencer
And as the century closes , amid the din o
ether and lesser vclces , we seem to hea
the deeper tones of these two1 Interpreter
spelling forth as representatives of the bes
and most earnest endeavors , from two to
tally different points of view , of our human
seekers after light , Each has taken th
whoo | of knowledge for his province.
"Despite the fact that our age Is one o
unexampled scientific and Industrial progress
yet nothing In all our modern scientific activ
ity Is moro striking than the undlsputei
primacy / > t thought thought not In antago
nlsm to cense , but Interpretative of the dat
of sense. Idealism , shorn of Us crudities am
Its extravagancies , and based on reason rathe
than on Berkeley's analysis of eense-percep
tlon , la conquering the world. What Plat
w , Descartes , Leibniz , Kant and Hege
have demonstrated. The once dreaded ma
t rl.illsm lias lest all Its terrors.
"Tho question that I am asking wha
knowledge Is of most worth ? Is a very ol
one. and the answers to It that have bee
.handed down through the centuries are many
ami various. It Is a question that each ag
if.iut put to Itself , and answer from th
standpoint of Its deepest and widen knowl
edge. The wisest philosophers have alway
teen , more or less clearly , the far-reachln
character of the question and the great Im
pcriaiicn of the answer.
"If It be true that tplrlt and reason rul
the unlverte. then the highest and most en
during knowledge Is of the things of th
tpirll. That subtle tense of the beautiful and
His sublime which accompanies spiritual In
sight , niul It part of It , is the highest achievement
mont of which humanity Is capable ,
" \\"f now some In eight of the element o
truth nml permanence In that humanism
which Petrarch and Erasmus spread eve
Kurnpo with uih high hopes and excell nt In
tcntloni , but which Strum , ( he Strassburg
schoolmaster , reduced to the dead , mechanics
forini and the crude verbalism that benne
the Fchcols In fetter * for centuries ,
Wo must enlarge then , our conception o
( he liuwanlllei , for humanity Is broader am
dteper than w * t.iye hitherto suspected. Tht
oncluston , which would weleotrle science with
pen arms Into the school and 'utilize ' Its op-
> ortunltles and advantages at every stage of
ducatlon , does not mean that ill studies arc
f equal education , does not .mean that all
tudles arc of educational ralue , or that they
are mutually and Indifferently Interchange
able , as are the parts Qf tome machines. It
means , rather , that the study cf nature Is
ntltled to recognition on ground similar to
hose put forward for the study of literature ,
of art , and of history. ' But among them-
clves these divisions of knowledge fall Into
n orJcr of excellence a * educational material
hat Is determined by thojr respective rela-
lens to the development of the reflective rea-
on. The application of this test must In
evitably lead us , while honoring science and
nslstlng upon Its ctudy , to placs above It the
tudy of history , of literature , 'of art , and of life. But these . 'turtles may not
not for a moment be carried on without the
study of nature or In neglect of It.
"But educatlcn , as Mr. Froudo has re
minded us , has two aspects , On one side
t Is the cultivation of man's reason , the
lovclopment of his spiritual nature. It Is
his aspect of education that 1 have been
considering , for It Is from this aspect that
wo dcrlvo our Inspiration and our Ideals.
But , ' continued Mr. Froude , 'a llfo of
speculation to the multitude would bo n
Ifo of Idleness and uselessncsj. They have
to maintain themselves In Industrious In
dependence In a world In which It has been
said there arc but three possible modes
of existence begging , stealing and workIng -
Ing ; and education means also the equip
ping a man with means to earn his own
living. ' It Is this matter and very practical
aspect of education that causes us to feel
at times the full forceof the question of
educational values. Immediate utility makes
demands upon the school which It Is unable
wholly to neglect. If the school Is to be
the training ground for citizenship , Its
products must bo usefully and soundly
equipped as well as well disciplined and well
Informed. "
After a solo by Mrs. Jay Robinson of
Denver , Dr. W. N. Hallman , superintendent
of Indian schools , Washington , D. C. , spoke
on "Tho Next Step In the Education of the
Indians. " Ho said education was naturally
the first step In tbo civilisation of the In
dian. This could only be given to the
younger persons , and to them only after
the breaking up of the tribal relations ,
The allotment of lands In severally Is too
radical a change for older Indians ; they
fall In the new llfo and thus conceive hos
tility for the Institutions of civilization ,
which makes effective work upon the young
very difficult. The Indians arc In many In
stances Immediately surrounded by the worst
typos of whites. The states have no Interest
to the Indians within their borders. Per
manent good can only come when the states
claim from the general government the right
to control and protect tbclr Indian residents
and carry out the treaty .stipulations by
which their consent to beg'ome citizens Is
purchased. ,

ANDERSON , Ind. , July 9. The greatest
combination the window glass Industry has
ever kntfwn was consummated last night.
For some time the price ofglass has been
about as low as It was possible to make It
for , caused by very strong competition. Dur
Ing the year just closed twelve companies
west of Plttsburg have , refused to sell their
product , and as a result their warehouses
have been filled. There remains nineteen
plants west of Plttsburg ; who have sold their
glass , and as a result the end of the teason
found 380,000 boxes gf'.glass In warehouses.
The twelve companies that have been work-
Inc on the quiet had 360,000 of these , ant ;
the half of the remaining .CO.OOO boxes will
not be lit to move for1 breakage. The 10,000
boxes will be exhausted In a couple of weeks
and then the combine will ) iave the markel
In their own hands. The factories cast of
PlttsburR have a big trade of. their own. They
only have 200,000 boxes available and tney
are held by the McKce , the Avermore , the
Jeanette and one of the -plants In Plttsburg.
They will not ship east and will ralso their
prices to correspond with the gas belt man
ufactures. A raise of 25 per cent on all win
dow glass was made last plight , and after the
10,000 boxes are disposed of the price will go
According to the workers' union the plants
cannot open before September 1 , and the
fact that the workers will demand the resto
ration of the 22 par cent cut of last year
will compel the other manufacturers to make
this concession If they start then. This will
not bo done. Even should they accede to the
ralso they would lose heavily and could not
put glass on the market * before the 1st day
of October. By this time' the current de
mand will be filled and It ; Is thought all of
the pool product sold.
The combination will be known as the Rey
nolds Selling Agency. Its Headquarters were
opened this morning at Muncle. The fac
tories that are In all belong to the Indiana
gas belt. They are the Anderson , Ell , Jones
and Bower of Eaton , American of Gas City ,

CHICAGO , July 9. The body of the man
who was shot and killed by Policeman Hosan-

been Identified as that of Charles Gorman ,
who lived at the Hotel Somerset , Twelfth

on his shirt hevas supposed to be C. E. Cole ,
but the linen was borrowed before the shootIng -
Ing occurred , and his real 'Identity was es

telegram from his wife In' St. Paul saying
that his baby daughter had died the night
before and urging Mm to come to her. He
made every effort to secure money to take
him to where his dead baiy { was , and after

When President Weller called the ad
journed meeting of the Citizens league to
order at the Board of Trade rooms at 8:30 :
o'clock last night he faced an audience that
filled the room and one enthusiastically In
sympathy with the recently Inaugurated
movement for reform In municipal and
county government.
In calling the meeting to order President
Weller briefly reviewed the work accom
plished at former meetings of the league.
Ho was convinced , he said , that the rank and
file of citizens , regardless of political iiinil-
atlons , wcro In favor of good govsrnmcnt.
The great trouble throughout the cities of
the country had been that business men and
the men who paid the taxes for the support
of the municipal government had been neg
ligent In the matter of city politics nml had
allowed the administration of public affair ;
to drift Into wrong hands. The Ct'.izens
league was not opposed to any party , but the
men who were urging the movsment wtie
doing so because they felt that the time had
come when taxpayers and the honest citizens
of all parlies should unite In an effort to
purify municipal affairs. Much had been
done and much would be done by the diPor-
ent parties that would not suit the general
body of citizens , but It was In the hands of
the citizens and It was their duty to unite
and give Omaha and the county a iood , clo&n
and honest administration of public affairs.
In calling for the report of the committee
appointed to complete the organization of the
league President Weller stated that of the
largo number of men selected on the general
committee at a former meeting of the league
lie had received but five tetters declining to
serve , and without exception the gentlemen
to declining had given good reasons for their
Mr. Swobe stated that ho had not read the
World-Herald , but he had been Informed that
that paper had made very prominent a
declaration that Mr. Guy C. Barton had de
clined to serve as a member of the general
committee of the league. Mr. Swobe wished
to deny the statement made by the paper In
question. Slnco coming to the meeting he
had received a message from Mr. Barton , In
which that gentleman stated that ho not
only had not declined to servo on the com
mittee , but that ho stood fairly and squarely
on the platform of the league and would serve
In any capacity In which the league saw fit
to place him. Tbo announcement was
greeted with cheers.
Mr. Richardson of the committee made a
report , substituting the name cf Mr. John F.
Coad as treasurer of the league , In place of
Mr. Harry Deuel , who declined to servo on
account of press of private business. The
committee also reported the completed list
of the general committee as follows :
For Omaha Allan T. Rector , John S. Knox.
Thomas Kllpatrlck , George W. LInlnger , W.
N. Babcock , E. W. Slmeral , Ed A. Cudahy ,
J3. R. Bruce , D. Clem Deaver , Thomas Swobe ,
Arthur Karbach , John Roslcky , R. W. Rich
ardson , Lee Herdmann , Charles Metz , B. E.
B. Kennedy , Dr. A. B. Somers. W. II. De
France , John S. Brady , Guy C. Barton , Rev.
Thomas J. Mackay , C. II. Brown , Ed Robert
son , James Wolshensky , L. J. Him.
For South Omaha David Anderson , P.
Sheehey , John H. Loechncr and W. H.
For Country Precincts Colonel J. II. Pratt
of Jefferson , W. Clements of West Omaha
and C. Rohwer of McArdle.
This report leaves ono commlttcsman to be
selected from South Omaha and two from
the country precincts. The committee asked
further time In which to make -selections.
The request was granted and the report of
the committee adopted.
With the report of the committee the busi
ness of the session was completed and Presi
dent Wcller announced that the league would
be pleased to hear from any gentleman pres
ent who might have anything to say for the
good of the cause. Mr , W. N. Babcock \\as
called upon and spoke enthusiastically of the
movement and the good that he hoped to see
accomplished by It.
The prime essential object of the organiza
tion , said Mr. Babcock. was to select good
men for office. It had been his experience
that the primaries of the political organiza
tions were usually In the hands of politicians ,
and that the business men and the general
citizens did not take- the necessary Interest
In the preliminary political meetings. The
result was that undesirable men were selected
to the conventions and the conventions nom
inated undesirable candidates , and the tax
payers had nothing to do but complain that
good men had not been nominated for olflce.
It was essential in the league work that the
committees and the subcommlttes to bo ap
pointed In the different wards and voting pre
cincts work for the one object , that none but
good men be chosen for olfico , men whom all
citizens , regarjlosa of party affiliation ; , could
unhesitatingly support. If that were done , he
held , thcro would be no question but that the
ticket nominate ! by the league would be
Mr. John S. Knox , In response to an Invi
tation to address the meeting , said that ho
was .not a politician In any sense of the
word , and If ho thought the present move
ment was a political ono ho would have noth
ing to do with It , would not have signed the
call , an3 would not have attended the meet
ing. Ho had always held that the govern
mcnt of a city should be managed on the
same principles as the government of banks ,
stock yards and other corporations. In such
Institutions when the election of officer * was
under consideration , the stockholders did not
ask what the religion or politics was of the
man who was being considered for position.
The questions asked we/e : la he an honest
man ? Is he competent ? Is he straight ? If
It were the purpose of the Citizens' league to
ask such questions concerning candidates for
office In the city an ! county he was with the
movement very heartily. If Omaha were to
, . leot her officers on such a platform It would
be of great credit to the city , and an object
lesson to other cities of the country that
were wrestling with the problem of reform
In municipal government.
Mr. J. J. Points was called upon and gave
the members of the league present a t-pl n-
dld talk on the duties of the citizen In munic
ipal elections. All citizens , ho said , should
forget partisanship and join In any movement
for the common welfare. Blind devotion to
partisanship In local affairs was the cause of
much corruption In city government. Citi
zens must arise above party and recognize
the fact that they owe something to the mu
nlctpallty. The ovlls of municipal govern
ment can be corrected only when the cltl-
ten recognizes that the name of citizen Is
superior to that of partisan , "I am a citi
zen" Is a prouder , nobler statement than "I
am a republican" or "I am a democrat. . "
When the citizens arise enmasse and select
their officials then officials will be held to
an accounting to the public and their short
ages and defalcations will not be covered by
the cloak of partisanship or from political
Mr. R. W. Richardson spoke at eomo
length upon the growth of the reform move
ment In cities. He thowed what had been
done In New York , where Tammany's grip
on the municipal throat had been loosened
by a citizens' movement ; bow Chicago had
driven out the boodlera by somewhat similar
methods , "and how the government of St.
Louis , formerly notoriously corrupt , had
been purified and placed on a business-like
basis through a citizens' nonpartlian re
form movement. He > vai much In sympathy
with the league movement In Omaha. He
had gone Into It only after careful con-
sldeiatlon of the principles underlying the
proposed reforms and ho wai ready to devote
his time aud energy to the furtherance of
those principles , tlio adoption of which
would give us a greater and n better Omaha.
Ho spol < o of the sectarian feeling In the
city and was emphatic In his denunciation
of the class that tecks to proscribe another
class of citizens and declare that they have-
no rights us citizens. There was no placb
In the constitution of the United States , ha
declared , that would recognize nny secret
political society that met between two suns
to proscribe any other class of citizens. It
had been been charged , too , that the
Citizens' league was n one-man movement.
Ho did not care what brand they
put on the movement. The ques
tion wa , Is It light , Is It on the
right principles , Is It for the good of Omalin ,
Is It for the betterment of the municipal
administration ? If It Is then no matter
who stands on the platform. Ho Iclleved
In the movement and every citizen who
signed the declaration of principles had as
much to do with the movement and for the
gocd of the city as any other man.
Dr. James F. Urtincr arose to address the
meeting. After Introducing himself he
stated that he did not believe that the
movement was being properly planned. Ho
was deeply Interested In the work , but ho
felt that the A. P. A. was not properly un
derstood. He thought that the A. P. A.
platform was broad enough to Include men
of all creeds , and that thcro was need of the
organization to defeat the * machinations of
of a foreign power that was seeking to unite
church and state. Ho paid a high tribute to
Mr. Roscwater as a man and an editor , but
took Issue with him on the question of the
A , P. A. The order had been formed , lie
understood , to protect American Institu
tions and , whllo he was not a member of the
order , ho thought there was need of such an
President Weller stated that he thought
[ If. Bruner had mistaken the purpose of the
Citizens' league. The organization had not
been formed to make a fight against the
A. P. A. The A. P. A. , however , Is making
i fight against one class of citizens and to
that the. members of the league were em
phatically opposed. ( Applause. )
There were repeated calls for Mr. Hose-
water and he responded briefly , the meeting
Insisting upon his taking the platform. Ho
said he fully appreciated the compliment paid
him by Dr. Bruner. The doctor was1 no
doubt honest In his convictions. He had
fought for the preservation of the union and
was therefore entitled to the fullest expres
sion of his opinions on that and every other
question. The doctor had conceived the Idea
that this country was In danger from the
Vatican. A good deal had been said In tlio
papers of a certain class about that kind of
danger. Hon. Richard Thompson , secretary of
the navy under President Hayes , had written
a book on that danger , In which he set forth
the plan of the pope to make America a
province under his control. Mr. Hosowater
suggested that before the pope should at
tempt to get control of a country of 60,000-
000 people he had better acquire about twenty
acres of the city of Rome , where at present
his domain was limited to less than a half
acre of territory outside St. Peter's and the
church buildings.
"But wo can't avoid that Issue , " sad ! the
speaker. "It Is crowded on us. It will not
back , because It U in front. I believe that
every evil that afflicts this country , every
abuse from which It suffers can be discussed
openly and freely and met face to face , and
1 would be gratified to meet the leaders of
the A. P. A. on this platform ( cheers ) an.l
discuss the grievances which they claim to
suffer under. ( Applause ) . They have dis
cussed us behind barred doors , stabbed the
best men In the city In the back , and we have
had no recourse. Every great Issue- ought to
meet every other great Issue , ought to meet
the consideration of citizens openly , and after
that let the majority rule. When the A. P.
A. leaders meet us and their claims
and grievances , then let the peaple determine
whether conditions exist which will warrant
their existence as a secret political body. Tlie
purpose of their organization Is not protection
from dangers that threaten us from abroad ,
but the desire for office and the work of the
organization Is sapping the very fountain of
our municipal government and robbing the
citizens right and left.
"Ao n sample of the work of the A. P. A. :
On the 18th of Juno the city treasurer of
Omaha left the city , short In his accounts ,
and returned to acknowledge lila defalcation.
Today wo have no successor legally selected.
The reason Is that the city council Is at pres
ent controlled by the A. P. A. , and has not
yet received Its orders from council 125 as to
the action to take In the case. " ( Applause ) .
Mr. Rosewater referred to a former occa
sion when a non-partisan movement was
organized In Omaha. It was some years
ago , when the city was having trouble with
the railroads over a bridge toll and other
matters , In which the roalroads were giving
the city the wortt of the deal. It was dur
Ing a state election , but the citizens were
aroused and , regardless of party , banker and
laborer went together and elected nearly
their entire citizens' ticket and won their
victory. It would be so In the present fight.
With public sentiment fully aroused to the
abuses In municipal affairs , there would bo
no such word as fall In carrying out the
plan of the Citizens' league.
The meeting was then adjourned subject
to the call of the president.
An Informal meeting of the general com
mittee was held after the adjournment of the
league. Another meeting of the committee
will be held on Friday evening to select
an executive committee and to adopt further
plans for the carrying on of the work of the

DES MOtNES. la. , July 9. ( Special Tel
egram. ) The sensational exposure of the
origin of the charges -against General Drake-
by a morning paper added new Interest to the
pro-convention gubernatorial canvas and
caused considerable stir among the delegates
to the republican state convention , the can
didates and their workers. There was consid
erable diversity of opinion amongst them all
as to the probable effect the exposure would
have upon the chances of the various candi
dates concerned , many believing It would
hurt rather than help General Drake's
chances , and all the opposition candidates and
their friends hoping It would help their re
spective chances. Secretary of State McFar
land and Senator Harlan took tlio earliest
opportunity to deny the broad Insinuations
against t'lem In the exposure , stating posi
tively that they had nothing to do with the
bringing of John Henderson here , nor with ,
the publication of the Corning Gazette's
charges. The following statement was given
to the press by Mr. Wlthrow , representing
the ex-senator , at the Harlau headquarters
this afternoon :
"As to the Insinuation In a morning paper
by which Senator Harlan was connected with
the circulation of certain charges against
General Drake , and the bringing of Hender
son here , we wish to say that Senator Harlan
and his friends have had absolutely nothing-
to do with such charges or movements. It
any of the persons who are so earnest In
making such charges against us will present
anything to substantiate them In any way
we will give them , the widest possible publica
tion In any paper they may name. "
Secretary McFarland came out In a long
letter In an evening paper , defending him
self against all the Insinuations against him
In connection with the matter and giving an
alleged truthful account ot all his connection
with Henderson while here. He says It was
agreed amongst the candidates that the best
thing to do would be to Ignore Henderson
ind his story entirely. Largo delegations
have arrived In the city today and the con
vention tomorrow will be ono of the largest
and liveliest In the history of the republican ,
party In this state.
Senator Allison was on the scene today
and there was consldeiablo speculation regardIng -
Ing the direction of his Influence. Ho de
clares ho Is simply here as an onlooker and
declines to talk for publication. Orinsby.
Harsh , Parrott and the other candidates with
lesser support than Drake and Harlan con
tinue hopeful that a break-up will occur , and
In the break-up each hopes to prove the win
ner. Pnrrolt Indignantly denies the story
that he Is playing for second place. Nothing
less than the nomination for governor will
satisfy him , and that he thinks Is within
A curious factor In the situation , but which
s not being used to any extent , Is the fact
[ hat ex-Senator Harlan Is ono Idol of Iowa
Methodism , while General Drake is equally
i leader In the Chrlsian or Dltclplc denom
ination. These entireties are , not In strict
liannony , and there appears to bo the same
lines of division In this gubernatorial contest
mder the surface. It Is n significant fact
that General Drake has the backing of the
railroad politicians , headed by State Chair-
nun Blytho.
Late this evening the best observers ad-
nltted that the relative strength of the can-
Hdates had not materially changed since yes-
ierday , and that the unpleasant sensation of
the morning had fallen flat ani failed to do
any harm. If thcro was any difference It
was conceded that General Drake was a llttlo
stronger than previous estimates had made
lilm , and would have clo e to 400 votes on
the ballot. Where the other 222 votes
uro to como from. If lie Is nominated , has
not been figured out. Ono thing Is quite prob
able , and that Is that a soldier candidate will
be nominated. Thcro are some .100 Grand
Army of the Republic veterans among the
delegates , and they are pretty nearly a unit
on that question , It having been sonic ten
years since ono of their number occupied the
governor's chair. A ooldler candlda'o would
bar out Ilarlan , Parrot and several othoru.
There ore several fa\orlte sons who are
posing as dark horses In the hope that guber
natorial lightning may strike them. They
are Hon. Frank C. Letts of Marstialltown ,
Major Samuel Mahon ot Ottumwa , nnd Sen
ator Conaway of Mahaska county. There Is
llco another candidate for governor who hut
the distinction of not having a single known
delegate In bis favor. Ills name Is W. S. Rus
sell , and he halls from Dallas county. Ho U
known as "Farmer" Russell , and pojcs as the
private soldier and laborlngman'j candidate.
Geograhplcally the candidates uro strongest
In their own localities , with the possible ex
ception of Senator Ilarlan , He lu thn only
candidate from the First district , hut the
majority of the de-legates In the district will
vote for Drake. The Eighth district Is di
vided between Drake and Harsh , excepting
an end of It. Tln Fifth district nnd the
southeastern part of the state Is mostly for
Parrott. The northwestern portion has thrco
candidates , and Is badly split up. Secretary
McFarland'n strength Is largely In the central
The convention will bo called lo order at
10 o'clock , with Joseph R. Lane of Davenport
as'temporary chairman. H Is very probable
the temporary organization will be made
permanent , In order to hasten the work ot
the convention , which at best promUes to belong
long and tedious. Mr , Lane will nuiko a
brief opening address , which will probably
end the tpcechmaklng. as there Is n disposi
tion to put In IIIO.H of the time bnliotlng until
the gubernatorial question Is settled , There
Is some talk of combinations between the
Harlan and McFarland forces nnl Drake and
Parrott followeis , but there Is very llttlo
prospect that cither will be consummated.
There Is little Interest In other nominations ,
except supreme con it Judge , which will bo
contested by Judge Given , present Incumbent ,
and Judge Mcl'rary of Kfokuk. It Is prob
able Given will be nominated. Henry Rabin
will bo renomlnatcd superintendent fit publlo
Instruction and George W. Perkins fur rail
way commissioner. The platform will em
phasize national Issues for protective tariff
and sound money , and the present mulct
liquor law will be endorsed. It Is rftlmated
tonight that there arc already 4,000 vlsltlnc
republicans In the city and another thousand
on the way.
