Curtis of Topeka receiving the nomination. The only other candidate who remained in the race was J. M. Miller of Morris county. The ballot stood Curtis, 88; Miller 33.. After adjournment last night the various county delegations got together and discussion the situation. It was evident that a hopeless deadlock would occur unless some concessions were made. Neither Woods, Coffey nor liutler would go to Miller, and Moore found it impossible to get votes from any quarter. The convention was called to order promptly at SI o'clock. A Butler county delegate moved that each candidate be given five minutes in which to address the convention, bat the motion was voted down by the Curtis combination. The chairman demanded the roll call. Butler county gave its votes to Curtis. Chase stood by Miller.Coffey went for Curtis and Greenwood followed suit. When Lynn county was reached the chairman of that delegation said; "Lynn county is opposed to the methods of Harrison Kelly and easts her eleven votes for Miller." Morris county also gave its vote to Miller. Shawnee, Waubunsce and Marion want to Curtis, giving him the necessary majority with a good margin to spare. Charles K. Curtis is a young lawyer, only 30 years of age, and was born in Shawnee county. Hi» mother was a half-breed Indian and the blood in his veins is plainly apparent. He is in every sense a self-made man. lie was county attorney of Shawnee county, and during his term of office gained notoriety for enforcing to the letter the state prohibition law. The nominee was brought before the convention and made a stirring speech. The convention then proceeded to elect delegates to the Minneapolis convention. O. W. Little of Waubunsee and Ira I'. Nye of Oreenwood counties were elected. The alternates are W. E. Brown of Butler and Win, F. Waller of Council Grove. O. S. Woodward of Yates Center was elected presidential elector.

The speaker announced unequivo- uilly that Iowa's delegation should be sent to the Chicago convention, bound to support Boies for the presidential nomination, and in conclusion said: "The Democrats of Iowa want to see _ our delegates go to Chicago like men_|_ upon a manly mission, and I wiBh to say to those delegates that if they swerve one iota in the performance of their duty to our governor and to our state, ;>tke honest face, kindly eyes, truthful lips, pure heart and manly form of Horace Boles, like Banquo's ghost, will haunt them through all the dreams of their lives. Hon. John C. Bills, of Scott county was announced as temporary chairman and there was another scene of enthusiasm as he stepped to tho platform. He hud been familiar in the political battles of Iowa fur many years and until a few years ago was a Republican. Ho is now a convert to Dc mocracy in the battle for tariff reform and the tight against the prohibition laws. It was thought particularly fitting he should be selected as tempoary chairman.

The speaker was interrupted by storms of hisses and cries of "put him out," and "never." The excitement was intenso for a short time. When the confusion subsided Chairman Branch ruled Mr. Urch out of order. Balloting for dclegatos-at-large then began. The platform declares in favor of a tariff for revenue only; denounces the McKinley bill; approves a currency sufficient in volume for the proper demands of business, whose every dollar is equal in value to every other dollar; endorses Grover Cleveland, and proph • eeics a Democratic victory under his leadership this autumn. Mr. Urch created another bree/.eby offering an amendment to strike out the name of Grover Clevoland and substitute that of David B. Hill. The motion was met with cries of "Sh.ut.up!" Sit down!" and "Put him out!" and other demonstrations of disapproval. The chairman ruled the motion out of order. The resolutions were adopted without further objections. MUnourl Democrats.

All the bodies were terribly mutilated. No signs of life have been discovered in tho slope where the disaster occurred and it is believed not one of the forty-eight miners in the slope when the explosion took place escaped death. The slope in which tho explosion occurred is a couple of thousand of feet in length. Several levels have been worked in the slope and it is conjectured that the explosion occurred at some point on the fourth or fifth level. For the past two months more or less danger was connected with the work in this part of tho slope on account of the unusual generation of gas and the management is credited with having exercised unusual precautions. Two air courses were, in process of construction in the supposed vicinity of the explosion with a view of joining them and when the two courses met the explosion occurred. Persons who were at tho opening of the slope pronounced the concussion as terrible, it being sufficient to throw a coal car some distance from the point where it was standing near tho entrance. Great volumes of • fire damp and some flames rolled from the en trance, making an approach dangerous. As soon as it was possible to enter, the men set to work, but progress was impeded by smoke and damp which the tunnel continued to emit. At 4:30 o'clock the first bodies were reached, being those of John Uowen and .lohn Campbell. Afterward work progressed more rapidly and at II o'clock two other bodies were brought out, and at 7:30 two others, all terribly burned and mutilated. Those whose bodies were recovered arc Tom Hren- nun, Tom Reese, A. Pollard, .lohn Bowen, John Campbell and William Hague. As progress was made the frightful execution of the explosion became more and more manifest. Timbers were torn out for hundreds of feet and tho whole interior is fearfully wrecked. It is thought fire was started in tho lower level and arrangements aro being made to turn on the water as soon as the fact is developed. The air \ fans are working to their full capacity and every effort is being made to recover the bodies of the imprisoned men. All the miners in the camp who are able to work have volunteered their services and men aro working constantly in shifts. From the fearful wreckage of the slope interior and doubt as to the existence of fire In the lower level there is no way of determining how soon the bodies can be re covered. Several of the bodies that have been taken out are badly mutilated, in one instance the head being sovercd from the body. This is tho second fatal gas explosion that has occurred in the slope within the past two months. The first resulted In the death of a negro whose carelessness caused the accident. Superintendent Ronald who was in the employ of the company, said the Blope work was dangerous to an unusual degree and recommended extraordinary precautions. It is stated that Acting Superintendent Harrison has been very careful with tho work and cautioned tho men to observe that the lau.-ps were in proper shape when entering the places posted as dangerous.
