Inntruct for Harrl.ou—Pennsyl­ vania Democrat. Assembled In State Convention To-Day. • KA.VSAS CITY, April 1.1.—The Star's Topeka special says: Three conventions were held here this morning. The convention to sclcot delegates for the Fourth district convention at Emporia elected twenty-right delegates and instructed them for Charles Curtis of this city. The convention to select delegates to the Hutchinson convention, May 5th, did not instruct its delegates for congressmen-at-largo, but most of the delegates are for S. B. Bradford, ex-attorney general. The convention to elect delegates to the state nominating convention met at 2 o'clock. The delegates to the state convention had been agreed upon in the morning at a consultation between R. B. Welch and a friend of "Farmer" Smith. It was decided at this caucus to iustruet for Welch and send a solid delegation of twenty-seven men pledged to support A. W. Smith for governor, Hovey for auditor, and Stover for treasurer. In order to get so many conventions disposed of it one day, it was necessary to rush matters through according to arrangement. Maj. «T, K. Hudson whs made temporary chairman of the Curtis convention. The temporary organization was made permanent and while the committee on resolutions was reading over the literature that had been prepared for it the committee on delegates reported. Among the well known men chosen on the delegation were T. Dwight Thatcher, D. W. Mulvane and James A. Troutman. It is said to be the agreement that if it is found impossible at Emporia to secure the nomination of Charles Curtis* of this city, because of the opposition of Lyon and .Greenwood coun ties, the name of Capt. .1. B. Johnson of this city, judge of the eircuiteourt, will be sprung. Judge Johnson, it is claimed, can get the support of the delegations from Lyon, Greenwood and Wabaunsee counties which, with the Shawnee delegation, will be sufficient to nominate him. A number of well known men have been agreed upon for the state nominating convention. It has also been agreed to endorse by resolution Hovey and Stover. M. T. Campbell is tlie only man who is to be given a place on the Shawnee delegation who did not support Smith at the primaries last Saturday, and Campbell went over to Smith after the result had been announced. Just as soon as Charles Curtis could thank the convention for its instructions adjournment was taken and the second convention, which was to select delegates to Hutchinson assembled. The Bradford men had control of the convention, but there was more of a contest for places on the delegation than interest in Bradford's candidacy. Committees wore appointed on resolutions and delegates. The report of the committee instructing for Bradford was adopted. This removes Gen. J. C. Caldwell from the campaign and means that ex-Governor Anthony will be a candididate. The resolutions adopted endorse protection, reciprocity and the administration of President Harrison. special policemen rushed in and seized the ballot boxes, and they are now in the polite station in an Iron cell. Other wards arc being held back. Tho Troy moh clubbed a number of citizens and are "now hiding in jail fearing to leave the city. The ballot boxes the police have sealed and after the excitement is over they will allow a fair representation of all parties to count the ballots. Two men were shot and badly hurt. Wyoming Democrat... Douni'As. Wye., April 13.—The Democratic state convention "will this afternoon elect an unlnstructed delegation i to Chicago. A large majority of the delegates are favorable to the candidature at Senator Hill. Louis J. Palmer of Sweetwater county, and a member of the state committee, has made an i active fight to secure the Wyoming delegation for his father, Senator Palme)' of Illinois, but without avail. The convention will bo called to order at 3 O'clock by Hon. Collin Hunter of Cheyenne, and the proceedings will occupy less than an hour. Republican** Ilavo No .Show In Plorlrin.

Attention strict and prompt l'enitHYlvuula Democrat., HAKRisnuKG, Pa., April 13.—The delegates to the Democratic state convention were culled to order at noon. The lower floor of the opera house was filled up by 403 delegates and two galleries were packed full of spectators. No convention held here in years has attracted snch crowded galleries. Congressman Beltzhoover was nominated for temporary chairman and ho was elected unanimously. During the course of his speech Beltz shove'r paid: The name of Grover Cleveland is inscribed in the affections of all intelligent, virtuous and substantial citizens of the republic. He deserved honor foT daring to do right when it cost him the brightest jewel in the crown of human ambition. They love him for his heroic character and for his unselfish patriotism. This tribute to the incomparable leader on whom the eyes of the country are now fixed as the man for the occasion must not be regarded as disparaging in any way to the scoreB of other noble Democrats who are worthy of the highest honors of their party and' their country. Robert E. Pattison is the peer of any one. If Arthur P. Gorman the great senator from Maryland should be ehosen to lead the fight there would be no mistake. Mr. Beltzshoover'B references to Grover Cleveland and Governor Pat- titsun were received with cheers long continued. One individual in the gallery shouted "What 's the matter with Hill," but only groans and hisses followed the mention of the New York leader. , A temporary organization was then completed.

WASHINGTON", April 13.—Shortly before S) o'clock this morning afire was discovered in the press room of the evening Star building. The flames quickly found their way through to the upper floor where the stereotyping and art departments and composing rooms are situated. A number of em­ ployes were obliged to make their escape through the windows to the roofs of adjoining buildings, and others by ladders which had been hastily procured. The fire was confined to the "L" of the main building and the principal damage was from water. The total loss is estimated at 855,000; fully covered by insurance. Arrangements were at once made to get out the regu lar issue ot the paper to-duy on the presses of the National Tribune, and it is probable that subsequent issues can be issued from the damaged building. St'irin lu the Went. KANSAS CITY, April 13.—A Chinese puzzle was what the telegraph system in the great range of country to the Rocky mountains west of the Missouri river was turned into to-day, Rain, snow, sleet iiud terrible winds played havoc with the wires. Tangled and broken strings were patched into temporary circuits wherever possible, but, the scant facilities thus eked out seemed far more of heart-breakers to the struggling operators and wire men than an adequate outlet for the huge accumulations of private messages and newspaper dispatches. The Heuate. WASHINGTON, April 13.—Mr. Dolph, from the committee .on foreign relations, reported back the house bill for the absolute exclusion of Chinese with the senate bill as a substitute for it, and has given notice that he will call it up as soon as possible.

Action Directed Afralnnt the Box Manufacturing- Firm of Carrlek, William* and Wright of San Francisco—The Trouble Grown Out or a Dispute lletween the Firm and It. Kmplorc*. PHii .AiiKi.rniA, Pa., April 13.—The first international boycott, in the history of labor organization in the world was issued to-day. it comes from the general executive board of the Knights of Labor, and is addressed to "the members of the Order of Knights of Labor in Australia, New Zealand and along the Pacific Coast of the United States of America." A brief circular accompanying the official notico urges that the work of boycott should be. done thoroughly and in earnest, and that; unity of action will of necessity be crowned with complete success. The boycott and address read as follows: "Brothers, greeting. For the first time in the history of the order you are called upon to do some specific and energetic work in the interest of our brothers who have been very unjustly dealt with by the box manufacturing firm of Carrick, Williams & Wright of San Francisco. A dispute having occured between the firm and their employes members of L. A. 9088, a committee from the local assembly waited upon the firm, but failed of arriving at a settlement of the difficulty. Before resorting to uuy harsh means the aggrieved workmen invited the friendly intervention of the Executive committee of the federal trades of the Pacific coast, but that able and eminently conservative body met with no better success. Your general assembly took charge of the case and endeavored to effect a settlement, but the firm refused to reinstate any of their discharged men, who had been dismissed for no other reason than that they were members of a union. Argument proved to be of no avail, and we next sought to discover what virtue there was in a direct appeal to the consumers of the firm, calling attention to the manner in which our brothers had been treated. We accordingly addressed the following firms, asking them to interest themselves in behalf of the men, but have failed to receive a response to our respectful letters: (Here follow the thirteen names of thirteen firms, dealers in produce, fish and fruit packing, bi-carbonate of soda, snap, candy and farinaceous goods.) "in view of these facts you are urged to call upon all grocers in your diifer- eut localities and inquire if they handle the canned goods or other merchandise of any of the firms named. If you find such to be the ease* report the fact to your local organization and to this office. I will then issue a sufficient number of circulars to thoroughly advertise such dealers in your neighborhood. Especial care is asked to ascertain the customers of Code, Elfelt & Company, manufacturers of canned goods, who sell in Australia and along the Pacific slope, and whose sales are so extensive as to keep the works of Carrick & Wright in constant employment. "Reports have reached this office that one of the firms which we have named have all their goods, packed by Chinese. I have written for more definite informal ion on this subject, and for proof of the assertion. If such proves to be the case the firm shall have all the benefit which will accrue from giving the widest publicity to the fact. Now, brothers, Carrick, Wllliams& Wright have an undoubted legal right to dispense with the services of any of their workmen who may desire to associate for the purposes of mental improvement or social enjoyment. Those to whom that firm sells their wares are conceded the right to the utmost indifference to the just complaint of their fellow men, and in refusing to reply to our respectful communications, they violate no law except that which prevails among gentlemen. It wouicl be unreasonable to attempt to give that law too great a scope or to demand for it an allegiance which is not due. But there is one power which we possess, and that power is an effective one. We need not buy the boxes manufactured, nor consume the goods packed in such boxes, nor deal with grocers or storekeepers who handle such goods. The order of the Knights , of Labor and its allied societies constitute a very material portion of the consumers of goods, and unity of action In this respect will of necessity be crowned with success." The order is signed by General Sec- rotary-Treasurer John W. Hayes and bears the seal of the executive board of the order. first "wet" banquet ever given by so large an organization In tho university, and therv wiil be distinguished participants from innay outside poiuts.
