world, but while this Is probably an exag-
r. r:t!on, thre Is ho doubt that there is
gold in considerable quantities In Donegal
About a year ago James Johnston of Bel-
' faHt. a mining engineer, who has had large
experience In America, satisfied himself
thin there was gold in workable quantities

went to America and a company with a

vada to work the Donegal goldflelds. Mr.
Juhnnton, however, has only parted with
six of his 1-1,0 10 acres, and Is reserving the

also contains silver in appreciable quanti

there are said to be extremely valuable
Whatever the result of the present mln

MANY IRREGULARITIES ALLEGED
Ctiarge Made by Taxpayer Property

vate Gain by City
CLEVELAND, O., Sept. 6.-8ult was filed
In commcn pleas court today by James K.
Faresey, taxpayer, asking that the security
grant of the Cleveland Railway company
be declared null and void nVd the lease of
the property to the Municipal . Traction
company be set aside. ' Fraud and financial
interest by city officials are named as a
basis for the ault.- The petition declsres
that the Municipal Traction company is a
fraud upon the city and its tax payers,
without legal or financial responsibility,
and wholly and solely controlled and dom
inated by Tom L. Johnson, mayor of Cleve
land. It Is further declared that the franchise
grant is a fraud because It provided a
higher rate of fare than had been offered
by the Cleveland Electric Railway com
pany of seven tickets for 25 cents with
universal transfers. It Is alleged that the
public funds of the city were used to pro
mote the Interest of the 3-cent fare lines.
Five hundred thousand dollars Is named
as the sum so used.
Inadequate Rental Charged.
It is charged that the West Side pump
ing station, valued at 11.500,000, was leased
to the Forest City company at an Inade
quate rental, and that land adjoining was
purchased at a cost of KW.000 out of tha
water works funds, and Is now being used
by the railway company.
Of the organisation of the Municipal
Traction company. It is charged that the
original directors of the company were
selected by the mayor, and that they were
at the time of their election mere tools and
puppets of the mayor, agreeing with him
that all that should b-a done In the opera
tion of the company should be In further
ance of his scheme and plan to control
the street railway system.
Tt t charred that prior to April 27, last
when the security grant waa passed "by
the city council, the Municipal Traction
company and Forest City Railway company
were creditors and depositors in tne ue
posltors Savings and Trust company of
which Johnson was president, ana vice
Mayor Lapp and Counctlmen Zlnner, Han-
ratty and Henry stockholders.
Financial Benefit Received.
It is charged that these four knew that
if the Foreat City property was sold to the
Cleveland Railway company and the prop
erty of the latter leased to the Municipal
Traction company, the atock of Jonnson
Lapp, Zlnner, Hanratty and Henry would
be made more valuable and they would be
financially benefitted. It Is declared that
these men had the financial Interest In
alght when three of them voted for the
security grant, and Lapp signed It as vice
mayor. Johnstm having purposely conspired
to go outside the city limits while Lapp
signed the ordinance, thereby endeavoring
to avoid the financial Interest charge. The
petition further asks hat a receiver be
appointed to take charge of the property
of the Municipal Traction company which,
it declares. Is utterly Insolvent, having
liabilities vastly in excess of assets, and
that the same be administered in the inter
ests of the city of Cleveland.

LINCOLN, Sept. 6. (Special.)
Shocked by the two tragic deaths In Lin
coln last night and Inspired by the belief
that the 7 o'clock cloeing rule Is not
promoting morality as rapidly aa Its
friends believed, the Excise board will
meet Monday for the purpose of adopt
ing more stringent rules governing the
Since the saloons are compelled to cloee
at 7 o'clock each evening it has been the
practice of persona who desire a drink
to buy the same before that hour and.
If living at a hotel, having the same sent
to their rooms. The board Intends to at
tempt to put a stop to that and It Is now
figuring on making a rule whereby liquor
cannot be t aken to rooms at hotels.
Just how it can prevent a person from
taking his beer to his room the board has
not yet announced, but by overawing the
hotelkeepera the board expects to ma
terlally lessen the practice.
Those who opposed the 7 o'clock clos
ing rule are pointing to the two tragic
deaths last night as an effect of the rule,
a sthe parties implicated In both deaths
were drinking, and in the case of the
Savoy hotel death the liquor, had been
taken to the room before the closing
hour. These people contend the 7 o'clock
closing order has not reduced the sale of
liquor, but on the other hand it has In
creased it and has promoted drinking.

Barnhouse when the fata! shut was fired
have been compared by the police and
are believed to be correct. Grace Groves,
the young woman with Barnhouse, de
dared, he had repeatedly stated he was
short in his accounts with the Gooch
Brokerage company at Adams. Neb., to
the amount of $9620. and he Intended to
kill himself to keep out of the pentten

his gun to prevent suicide, be shot him

W. A. Wllley, who killed Joe Watklns,
a hack driver, lost night, today declared

formidable political projectiles fired from
heavy republican guns went screaming
away In the direction of Lincoln, Neb.,
today and the republican campaign in Ohio
was declared formally underway. Through
the smoke could be seen the gunners.
Governor Hughes of New York and Senator
A. J. Beveridge of Indl:ma. Another shell,
fired by Governor Harris of Ohio, disap

parlor at Falrvlew.
Along the rust-red waters of the Ma
honing river today the great mills of the
Carnegie works of the United States Steel
corporation, the Republican Iron and Steel
company, and the Youngstown Sheet and
Tuba company were quiet, for a three-day .
holiday had been declared, Including Sun
day and Labor day. Youngstown .la a
steel town, and the brawn and muscle of
her chief Industry formed the body of tha
parade which preceded ti.e discharge ot
the heavy political ordnance.
There was an Immense crowd at Wlclt
park when Governor Harrla, following an
Introductory apeech by Arthur I. Vorys.
began the oration with an address dealing
largely with the liquor question In Ohio,
which has become an Important state Issue.
Governor Hughes followed and the speak
ing closed with the address of Senator
Beveridge, both devoting themselves
strictly to questions ot the national cam
paign. Hughes Sounds Keynote.
The words of Governor Hughes, "The
army oppoalng us cannot pass muster
either as one of defense or ot salvation,
and we may well pause before we permit
It. despite Us boast of fidelity, to garrison
our national Institutions," was the keynote
of the meeting.
Governor Hughes started with a brief
eulogy, of Mr. Taft, sketched the success
of republican rule for the last twelve years
with high praise for the reforms of the
Roosevelt administration, dwelling on the.
creation of the bureau ot corporations and
the passage of the railroad rate bill, tha
pure food bill, the meat Inspection bill,
the employers' liability bill and othera.
Speaking of the fact that the new presi
dent probably would have the appointment
of four Justices of the supreme court of
the United States, he alluded to Mr. Taft'a
high standing as a Jurist and hla wide
knowledge of the bench and bar from
which such appointments, of the highest
Importance, must be made. Governor
Hughes contrasted the candidates, dis
cussed elecUon laws, the tariff, criticised
Mr. Bryan's scheme for guaranteeing bank
deposits, disparaged his remarks for
monopolistic abuses snd Insisted that labor
had no truer friend that Mr. Taft and tha
Beveridge Emphaalaea Tariff.
As the governor lorcefully brought out
his points he was loudly cheered. The
ovation which had greeted him waa re
peated when Senator Beveridge arose.
'We are midway In a historic movement
for righteousness written Into law," said
the senator, "Stuill that movement be
carried out, or wrecked?"
He declared that ot the work remaining
to be done by the republican party, revision
of the tariff cornea first. He said the re
publican Idea Is to meet other commercial
nations with their own weapons. He
favored an adequate navy, for, he said,
Mr. Bryan's Idea of a navy only lainn
enough to protect our own Kiire meant
the abandonment of the Monroe doctrine.
That doctrine was as nothing, he declared,
without ships to make It respected. Con
trasting Mr. Bryan and Mr. Taft, the
"Mr. Bryan haa never handled a single
foreign problem, ho had governed no
Philippines, regenerated no Cuba, built no
canal, avoided no alien danger, saved up
from no threatened peril. In demoesllo
affslrs, Mr. Bryan has written not one law,
administered not a single department, ad
vised no president while lecturing! all. He
is a preacher of righteousness, but not sn
administrator ot affairs. Mr. Bryan Is
an Aaron, not a Moses; a Henry, but not a
Washington; a Wendell Phillips, but nut
an Abraham Lincoln."
Youngstown was profusely decorated
with the national colors when the boom of
cannon In the public aquare announced tho
arrival of th distinguished speakers of tha
day. The latter In carriages, participated
in the parade, which ultimately brought
them to the magnificent grove of oaka
called Wick park. The crowd, mostly In
uniforms worn during the parade, packed
closed around I he speakers' standard and
was liberal with its applause.
