The thoughtful Republicans are growing deeply interested, as they realize more and more that, fusion or no fusion, when the day for polling the ballots arrives their friends the enemy, are going to rally for a desperate effort, and the probabilities are that David Overmeyer will lead the onslaught.

Kaeley listituti OKLAHOMA li Attention strict andjprompt convention secure a leader who is able to measure swords with that- sturdy, persistent, always up-and-atthem war horse, they must know the ability and staying qualities of their candidate. That Dave wus engaged in some slight attempts to pump a little wind into the Hill boom in Kansas, in the early and tender days of the orphan, will in no way interfere with the present plan to i run him on the Democratic ticket for that place, lie has been seen and catechised by some of the leaders of the Alliance, and the scheme has been virtually agreed* to. These leaders are waking up to the fact that old Molly Lease and Willetts •and Cy Corning will not win the fight this year. They must have people on the stump who can meet logic with logic, and therein lies Dave's chances, as he is considered the best Campaigner at their command. Thus it behooves the Republicans to select their best man for the fight, as it will he a fight, and a hard one. From the many people 1 meet from every section of the state there comes the universal demand that George T. Anthony shall lead the forces in this campaign, and accept this nomination. Many persons who have in times past, been rather lukewarm in their support of Geo. Anthony, are to-day quietly advocating his nomination, and their reasons for such a course are not to be brushed aside— they are weighty and worthy of careful consideration. There is no criticism of other candidates, but a firmly oxpressed purpose of selecting the best man and giving him the nomination. The fusion scheme is assuming queer shapes and forms. In some localities the third party followers are declaring against allowing their Democratic friends any show at all, while their leaders go right along hobnobbing with the Democratic leaders, counseling with them how to down "the common enemy, "the Republican party," and arranging for a division of the spoils. In other counties the calamity leaders think they have the Democrats by the slack uf. the trousers and are paying very little attention to them, believing that when election day comes they will cast what few votes they have left with the third party, hoping thereby to defeat the Republicans, which means a victory to Democracy, whether gained through their own efforts, or through the medium of the cheap money party. To the third party bosses has been given the task of "fixing up things" so that at the polls the Alliance and Democrats will be able to pull together, whether it bo by open fusion, or by filling the ticket with dummy candidates to be dropped on the morning of the election. And just why the honest, well meaning farmers of Kansas, who went into the Alliance hoping to be benefitted, can longer remain, is beyond comprehension They see the affairs of the Alliance all merged into polities; the managers of the Alliance and third party are one and the same; the Alliance in the north must endorse the third party, while in the Democratic south it must not; the members of the Alliance have been taxed and have paid the third party jaw smith more money than will pay the salaries of the state officers of Kansas; the only work now in hand is the defeat of the common enemy, the Republican party." What there is in the scheme for the farmer of Kansas is beyond comprehension. The third party managers—now getting the best living they ever . enjoyed —are trying to hold their forces together with the promise that their congressmen are doing heroic work at Washington. That is a fact. Such results arc seldom attained by a few inexperienced men. Thoy work in such harmony, their efforts cannot fail in accomplishing much. Otis opposes free wool, Clover dodges the silver question, Simpson advocates absolute free trade, and Peffer wantB u protective tariff. Such harmony of thought and unity of purpose should accomplish much. Word comes from T. J. Norton that the California air has greatly bene fitted his health and he expects to return to Kansas soon. Tom was a bright and promising young journalist, and had just been promoted from the Newton Republican to Topeka correspondent for the Kansas City Journal when the Stevens county trouble called him to that section. While doing most excellent work there he was taken very ill, from which he has not yet recoverod. It Is understood that as Boon as his health will permit, he will be given a good position on the editorial force of the Kansas City Journal. Charley Brown of Norton county, the man with whom Cy Leland and Sol Miller were going to beat State Auditor Uovey out of a much deserved renomination, has just failed to secure a single delegate in his own county. The Antl-IIUUtea In NewTvork, TEOV, N. Y., April 30.—The anti-Hill movement was Inaugurated in this "ncck-of-the-woods" to-day by the arrival of lion. Charles F. Fairehild of New York, who is here to effect a central organization to elect Democrats to the Cleveland convention to be held at Syracuse at the end of the month. The sentiment iu this region is decidedly in favor of Cleveland. Reports are being circulated that it will shortly be announced that Tammany hall has dropped Hill from the race. A conference of anti-Hillites is in progress to-day with numerous county and ex- offlcials-participating. Washington's Inauguration. NKW YORK, April 30.—One hundred and three years ago to-day, with all the pomp and ceremony befitting the occasion, George Washington was inaugurated in the senate chamber in this city as the first president of the United States. It was on this occasion that he delivered the memorable address in which he declared that the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican form of government were justly considered as deeply, and perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people. In honor of the day and event the National Society of Sons of the A merican Revolution are to-day holding their annual convention in the great governor's room of the city hall, tho use of which was giveu by the board of aldermen by unanimous consent.

Y., April 30.—Ferdinand Ward was released from prison at 0 o'clock tlds morning. He left in a closed carriage, which was driven at a rapid rate. The newspaper men who were present in large numbers were not admitted within the prison walls. Word is a somewhat different looking man to-day from what ho was on tho day he entered the state prison. His eyes are sunken and they have lost some of their brightness. A good deal 01 his nervous 'manner is er> tirely gone. His cheeks that were pale are now sallow. Notwithstanding that he is heavier than he was, his face has something of a pinched look. He was 33 when he went to jail. He is 311 now. lie will leave jail with the good wishes of the employes there. During the six years' confinement he has never been reprimanded. He has kept his own counsel and has made no friends among the prisoners. ' Eastwood, his assistant, can come nearest claiming iiis friendship. Kif^ht -lfour Demonstration. CiuoAiio.

NASUVU.I.K, Tcun., April 30.—Had not the sheriff, his deputies and the city police been on the alert at a late hour last night, Eph. Grizznrd, and perhaps two other negroes, would have been swung from the bridge over the Cumberland river in the heart of the city. The citizens of Goodletts- villc. do not seem disposed to permit the brutol outrage perpetrated by the two negro scoundrels and urged by others, on two helpless young women near that little village Thursday night to be contented with the hanging of only one of the brutes. At 1 o'clock last night a crowd of 200 men went to the jail, broke down the gate and with a whoop surged into the jail yard. One man had a rope in his hand and another a sledgo hammer. None of them were disguised. A call was made for Sheriff Hill, he appeared and the leader told him the crowd wanted to get at least one of the ne groes. "I can't let you have any of them," said the sheriff. "Well, Hill, we don't want to hurt you, but we will have that negro." "I ask you not to take him;" said sheriff. The man witli the hammer then began to batter on the outside door to cell. Rising above the blows of sledge hammer rang cries of "Remember our homes!" "Think of our wives and our mothers!" The blows made no more impression than if they were beating with a sand bag mid at 1:30 they grew tired of their work. The jail officers stood or walked about. "The keys, the keys!" the mob shouted. At 1:45 Governor Buchanan and Adjutant-General Norman, who had been awakened, made their way into the jail. The governor mounted the crowded steps and called out to the mob yelling "keys," avid called them to order. The governor said: "1 prouiise you that the law shall be vin- few Ncu- Tin Vlate Faotory.

Four railroad laborers were instantly killed. One man Is missing and others are injured. dicated, "The law is too slow. We won't wait. We must have Eph Orizzard to-night." "Gentlemen." said the governor, "There is none more anxious to vindicate the law than I; 1 pledge you iny word that justice shall be done." The words of the governor were useless. A man with a crow bar arrived. He was greeted with yells of "lireak it open'." "To work," were the cries. The crowbar was applied to the iron door, and half a dozen men grabbed hold of it. Governor Buchanan grabbed the crowbar and by main strength held it back for a moment but was overpowered. He then retired into the corner of the room. The mob were not successful, how- over. At 2:25 the mob was reinforced and began battering with axes, clubs, etc. The police then stood firm and beat them buck with clubs. Then a shot was fired from without. This was returned by the officers. No one inside was hurt, though several shots grazed the clothes of the olllcers. A man named N. L. Uuthrie came to the door and said he was wounded and wanted to be taken in. Ho wus admitted, lie had been shot through the left lung. Ho. lingered until » o'clock this morning when he died. The governor then appealed to the crowd to desist, giving them his word he would see that justice was given. As it was growing early the mob decided to depart, bait not until they avowed their intention of returning uud hanging at least one of the prisoners. During the fusilado Charley Rear was also shot. His wound is serious. LATKK—At 2 o'clock the mob assembled on the square. They marched to the jail and apparently without interference on the part of the officers, secured the fiend, Eph, Orizzard, put a rope around his neck and have left in the northeast direction with him. The mob hanged Eph Grizzard at the cast end of the bridge across tho Cumberland river, in the heart of the city, after which they riddled Ills body with bullets. and ceremony.

Not the One, but Ajiother Frenchman NEW YORK, April 30.—A London dispatch says that Due De Moray was not the opponent of Milbank In the duel fought iu Belgium Thursday. A reporter saw the duke in Paris, apparently not suffering from any recent wounds. De Moray said that/ he had not fought with Milbank and did not apprehend any hostile meeting with him. The duel was brought about by causes that have no connection with the Borrowe-Drayton affair. After the meeting oetween Fox and Bar- rowe at Nleuport, on Saturday, Mil- bunlt went to Brussels. At tho hotel cafe two Frenchmen who sut near Milbank made insulting remarks about the Englishmen which Milbank resented, and the duel which followed took place on the identical spot where Fox and Barrowe met. Milbank shot his opponent through the hip und he was carried to the yacht of a friuud that lay off the coast. Church Dedication. CHICAGO, April 30.—To-morrow will be a momorablc day in the local history of the Catholic church from the fact that the magnificent chn ch of Notre Dame, which has just been completed,, is to be dedicated with unusual pomp Losses by the Fire at I.a Crosse. LA CHOSSK, Kan., April 30.—(Special.)—A (110,(100 fire litup this cltylast Wednesday morning at 2 o'clock, which consumed an entire block ou this east side of Main street, except tho Rush County Hank building, the fire extending from that structure ou the south corner to the Macuulay & O'Neal building on the north corner of the ' block. The fire started in tho Cone building, which was a two-story and is supposed to have been caused by a cigar or cigarette stub being dropped on the door in a back room upstairs, which wus known as the Kids' dive, a room where certain boys of the town were known to resort and play cards. This building was occupied upstairs by McCormick & Wlnterburn's law office, and below by T. A. Mauley as a hardware and harness store. Seven buildings in all were destroyed in which the following gentlemen were doing business: McCormick & Winterburn, lawyers; T. A.Manley, hardware and harness; G. B. Stitzcl, meat market; Maeaulay & O'Neal, general merchandise; Mrs. McCormick, millinery; the Chieftain printing ofllec; S. C. Walker, groceries, and Postmaster Dow. Loss on the bulldinjgs is estimated at from »5,000 to 87,000; all of them being f rarav. and the majority of them one story. It is a remarkable, fact that all these firms save one, succeeded iu getting out nearly all their goods. Mr. S. C. Walker lost flour, potatoes, etc., which was stored away in a wareroom adjoining to the Cone building, in which the fire originated. Mr. Walker is perhaps the heaviest loser, what he didu't save amounting to SAW. Somebody has been caught napping as there were only S700 insurance on the seven buildings; a number having let their policies lapse. Three safes went through the tire, and the one that was located iu the Cone building, aud belougcd to McCormick & Wiuterburn, not being locked, came open in 'the fall from the upper story, and Its contents were all lestroyed, among them notes amounting to 812,000. Th'tt is the only disastrous conflagration the city has ever experienced, and it is to be hoped it will be the last. Had the wind blown from the cast, or hard from the south, one-half of the town might have been destroyed, The fire department did good service and the city duds will more than likely see to it that the boys are better equipped, and also that no frame buildings are allowed to be erected ou tho burned district.
