CI.EVKI.AMD, O., April 38.—A pitched battle in the Republican state convention between the ShermauiteR and For- akerites was averted to-day only by the timely interference of Gen. W. II. Gibson of Tiffin. He withdrew from the race and declared that it would be best to nominate a state ticket without regard to either side and that all four delegates-at-large be nominated by acclamation, and that they be McKinley Foraker, Bushnell and Uapan, two un- mistakeablc Foraker and two easily recognized Sherman men. Governor McKinleywas made permanent chairman. He delivered a forceful speech, and his allusions to the able adminis tration of President Harrison and to Secretary Maine's firm foreign policy were greeted with round after round of applause. The report of the com mittee on resolutions was then adopt cd. The platform declares unbounded confidence in President Harrison; endorses the McKinley bill; opposes the free coinage of silver by the United States under the existing circumstances, and would not favor it except under conditions that would reasonably insure the maintenance of a substantial parity between bullion and the mint or money value of its coin. Every coined dollar should have the intrinsic as well as monetary value of every other coined dollar." The Sherman man, Taylor, was put in nomination for the head of the ticleet. Judge Win. T. Spear and ,7. T. Kurkett were nominated for supreme court judges.

April 28.—The Republican convention reassembled this morning and after some preliminary business the committee on resolutions made the following report: The platform reaffirms the devotion and allegiance of the Republicans of Missouri to Republican principles; en dorses the aaministr&tion of President Harrison, and especially commends "its foreign policy, so successfully conducted by the distinguished statesman, James G. Maine;" endorses the McKinley bill; favors the payment to Union soldiers of sufficiently large pensions to prevent them from becoming objects of charity; condemns monopolies and trusts; endorses the foreign contract labor law; demands the existence of equal taxation in the state; denounces the Democratic legislature of M issour for the gerrymandering of the congressional districts of the state so as to disinfranchise 230,000 Republican voters, and also denounce them for. "their infamous gerrymander of judicial circuits of the state, thereby identifying the judiciary with party politics;" condemns that portion of the present state election laws whereby recorders of voters are empowered to appoint not only judges and clerks of elections for the Democratic party, but for the Republican party also; favors taking immediate steps before the next state and national elections take place, to purge the registration books now in use of hundreds and thousands of names of dead men and non-resident voters that are carried thereon purposely year after year and rated under the protection of the party in power in our large cities and towns, and denounces the state Democratic legislature for having so framed the Australian ballot laws as to practically disenfranchise the independent voters of the state not identified with either the Democratic or Republican party. The silver plank is as follows; "We commend the policy of the Republican party in maintaining an honest cur rency, and we not only favor legislation that will maintain our gold, silver and paper money on a parity in value but also favor an international monetary system as the only safe solution of the silver question." The platform was adopted unan imously. A state central committee was elected and the convention then proceeded to nominate a state ticket. Maj. William Warner, ex-congressman of the Kansas City district, was nominated for governor amidst great applause, and was elected by acclamation. Maj. Warner acknowledged the honor in a brief speech, and other speeches and general congratulations consumed the remainder of the time until a recess was taken. sion hero this afternoon.

Six members of the "Devil's Auction" company- lie dead beneath the fallen walls of the building and nearly three score of people are in the hospital suffering from burns. Of the men and boys in the hospital, seven are in such a serious condition that their recovery is doubtful. All were members of tho audience. Besides those who were seriously enough hurt to remain in the hospitals fully fifty others were treated for minor injuries. The unfortunate members of the company who lost their lives are: Thomas Lorcllu, grotesque, and his wife Flora, ballet dancer; Vlncintlna Chitten, premier dauseuse, one of the Chitten sisters; Miss Fanehon Chonyers, juvenile, residence Chicago; Miss Sarah Golden, ballet dancer, resides in Chicago: Wm.

In addition to the serious condition of the above it is feared that many will lose their eye sight an their burns are all mostly about the face.

NEW YOIIK, April 28.—The Herald's Washington special says: "For the sake of a few New England mugwumps we an likely to lose a number of Democratic silver states," declared Congressman Mlvnd yesterday. Bland has apparently abandoned all hopes of silver legislation at the present session of congress. Mand was asked what states the Democrats were likely this fall to lose, because of their failure to pass the silver bill. He named North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas as states like- lyto be effected by the failure of the house to act. Senator Pugh, of Alabama, shares the same views. No Hearse ror lugalls. NKW YORK, April 28.—The Herald's Washington special says: "I do not want to ride into the senate on a hearse" is the terse manner in which ex-Senator Ingallsof Kansas, asserts his objection to coming to Washing as the successor of the late Senator Plumb. He probably would not refuse such an election if tendered, but his ambition is to defeat Senator Peffer when his terra expires, because he would regard such an event as a vindi cation. Klc:e County Republicans. STERLING, Kan., April 28.—Tho dispatch yesterday from Rice younty were incorrect in saying the delegation from Rice county to the state convention were for Smith.

Y., April 28.—The Uar- manus Meeker hall was packed with prominent Republicans from all parts of the state at 12:30 to-day, when Hon. William Brookfield brought down his gavel and called tho meeting to order. Secretary Kenyon read the call for the gathering, indicating that Its object was to elect four delegates-at-large to the Minneapolis convention, to nominate two presidential olectors-at- large, and to elect a new state committee. The sentiment of the delegates this morning indicates that the delegates-at-large will be Thomas C. Piatt, Warner Miller, Chauncey M. Depew and Frank Hiscock, better known as the "big four" of '88. These four would represent every shade of Republican feeling in the state. The resolutions will indorse President Harrison's administration, and denounce the course and illegal methods of the Democratic managers in regard to the recent legislative fight.

Meads Modeled. A curious eighteenth century cue ton has been revived by the leading Paris coiffures, of having models made of the. heads of distant clients in order to study the effects of new styles of hair dressing and keep the ladies ported on the newest and most becoming fashions. A Russian grand dams, for example, sends at a considerable expense a facsimile of her head and face, copied perfectly in every detail, to her hairdresser in Paris. He experiments freely, ami when a satisfactory result IK obtained he mails a photograph of it, with minute directions for arrangement, each month to the St. Petersburg belle, and t!»us enables her to look up to date in the matter of coiffure. The initial expense is not small, for the won modeler must in his way be u true artist—Chicago Tribune. Weather Judications. Contesting a Foolish Will. PHILADELPHIA, April 28.—Unless wise counsels prevail an appeal to the su preme court is likely to be taken agarnst the decision of J udge Hanna of the orphan's court in the matter of the Donaldson estate. This case'has already been vigorously fought in on court, and before a (special muster. It grows out of the will of Mrs. Sarah Donaldson who bequeathed a large estute to be divided between Bishop Morris of Oregon, and Bishop Tuttlc, now of Missouri, their proportion in each ease to be devoted to their missions. A codicil to the will provided that in case of the death of either of the bishops the estate was to go to his successor in the diocese. Before the will was probated, however, it occurred that the diocese of Bishop Morris had been split in two, and half of it given to Bishop Paddock, while Mshop Tuttle had been transferred to Missouri, and his old diocese divided as follows: Montana to Mshop Brewer, Utah to Bishop Leonard and Idaho to Mshop Talbot. When the will came on for probn-te, Judge Ashmen determined to divide it between tho bishops of Oregon, Missouri, Washington, Mon tana, Utah and Idaho, giving one- fourth to Mshop Morris, one-fourth to Bishop Paddock, and one-third of the remaining half to each of the other bishops. By this decision Bishop Tuttle, now of Missouri, was left entirely out m tho cold. Upon appeal, how ever, Judge Hanna reversed this dc cisiou declaring- that in accordance with the will the estate must be divided between Bishops Morris and Tuttle. It is now stated by the attorneys for the other bishops that the case will be carried to the highest courts. Lake Navigation. DULUTII, Minn., April 28.—Private advices from Washington, where several Duluth men have been at work in the interest of the great lake channels and deep water navigation from Du luth to the sea, indicate that there is a strong probability that retaliatory measures will be taken against Can ada because of the imposition of tolls on American vessels passing the Welland and St. Lawrence canals. When this spring the Canadian government reiraposed tolls on American vessels passing these canals the attention of Secretary Blaine was brought to the matter by Secretary Thompson of the Duluth chamber of commerce, and by a representative of the Oswego beard of trade, and retaliatory meusures, by charging toll on all Canadian vessels passing tho greatHault canal into Lake Superior, were proposed. Secretary Blaine was at once Interested in the matter, and after a number of confer ences has come to the conclusion to at once take steps toward inaugurating a system of tolis. In a few days the matter will probably be made public from Washington. The Alliance Uall Association Kxamlned and Found Wanting. llmoN, S. D., April 28.—Joseph Freu- deofcld, insurance inspector, came here two weeks since by direction oi State Auditor Taylor and examined the affairs of the Alliance Hail association. Alonzo Wardcll, of the National Union Cordage fame, is the representative of tho association, and with H. L. Loncks, icorge Cross and other Alliance and Independent leaders run its affairs. After examining the report Audior Taylor writes Secretary Cooley saying the report shows a condition pf affairs that cannot be justified. The worst feature is the gross discrimination practiced iii payment of lossefl. The .ixaminution discloses that the association has apparently had a list of preferred creditors. Hundreds have been overpaid the amounts in aggregate to thousands of dollars. This overpayment has been made to a minority of policy holders Justice demands that the overplus be recovered and applied to 'ncrcaso tho per cent, of the payment of all losses in equal ratio. If that cannot be done the assets of the association should bo converted into cash, the losses prorated, and each loser receive the same per cent. Until this injustice is righted no application for certificate of authority will be considered. Secretary Cooley says tho auditor's charges are misrepresentations. A "White Wedding." NKW YORK, April 2.1.—St. George's church on Stuyvesant Square was filled to overflowing at 2 o'clock to-day with prominent members of the wbrld of fashion on the occasion of the marriage of W. K.

The choristers wore white gowns, tho bride and bridesmaids wore white satin, and. most of the guests were in costumes of the same color. The ceremony was performed by Rev, William S. Rainsford.

Ferplexlty of Dive Keepers. DES MOINKS, Iowa, April 28.—The keepers of illicit whisky joints are very much exercised over Mayor Lane's recent notice that tho law will be rigidly enforced, and they are now circulating petitions asking that they may be allowed to run their dives by payment of monthly fines after the manner of some other Iowa cities. Failing in this movement, they threaten to imitate the example of the Soux City fraternity by a strict enforcement of tho Sunday laws, and it is said the mutter may uome to a test next Sunday.
