Continued from first page. mittoe immediately followed the adjournment of the convention unci before the slower members had realized what was going on Governor Kornkcr WIIR at the helm. It came about like n Hash. Delegate Oliver of Pennsylvania on entering the room rapped immediately for order, briskly named Koraker for the place and getting a prompt second put the motion, announced that it wan curried and Foraker was the man. When the committee had caught breath after the lightning-like election Governor Gear of Iowa made a suggestion which was adopted. It was that the preparation of the platform be referred to five sub-committees of live members each, the division to be as follows; First, tariff: second, silver; third, elections; fourth, foreign relations; fifth, miscellaneous. Gov. Foraker announced he would name the members of the sub-committees at 4 p. in., and the committee then adjourned to 8 p. m. Commute*' on Credential,*.

KANSAS CITY, June 7.—The Star 's Lawrence. •• Kan., special says; The Democratic convention met this morning and effected a temporary organization by electing Hon. .1. H. Chapman of Fort Scott temporary chairman. The contest lias narrowed down to Judge Stephen Allen of Linn county and Col. II. L.Moore of this city. There is a movement on foot to adjourn the convention without a nomination, but it meets with little ' favor, as the sentiment seems opposed to fusion with the People's party. Thr Tltusvllle Horror. TiTr»viij.K. Pa.. June 7.—The coroner 's jury this morning made a trip over the. ground where the lives were, lost, picking up information which may be of service to them when they come to examine into this calamity. The men on the jury are among the best citizens here and are thoroughly familiar with both the property and the people whose lives were lost. They have no doubt whatever that the disaster could not have been avoided. Hut, nevertheless, they intend making a thorough and complete examination. The board of health has taken the matter of interment in hand and has passed resolutions directing the burial of all bodies possible to-day and the remainder Wednesday, no body hereafter recovered to be kept unburied. It is expected that twenty-live to fifty of the dead will be buried to-day. The total amount of money subscribed at this writing is $11,720. but it will take more than a dozen times that sum to do much {.radical good. llodiet* Tmmviu.K.JuneT.—Mrs.Quinn'sbody was found to-day under the debris at Teges' barrel factory, a half a mile from her residence. From the terrible stench proceeding from the debris it is believed other bodies will be found there. Searching For tlic Dead. On. CITY, I'a., June".—The mayor lias issued a proclamation calling on all business houses to close and put their employes and themselves at work in search for bodies of victims of Sun' day 's disaster. Orrden City Urlnt. (•AiiiiBN CITY, June 7.—[Special.]— Weather warm, pleasant and dry. Have had no rain this month, so far. Crops are flattering in the extreme. Cutting alfalfa began last week, turning off about two tons to the acre. The humid weather has caused an unusually luxuriant growth that has lodged somewhat, the ordinary yield being one and one-half tons for the first cutting. A correspondent of an Arkansas City newspaper thus emphatically praises this golden yielding plant; "If you have an alfalfa field yon have a gold mine and a bank, for that far surpasses government bonds. A mine that is inexhaustable and a bank that never suspends. It is perennial ami permanent. Yon don't have to cultivate it three or four times a year. Though it must be cut that often, the process of caring for it is really no more trouble than cutting off coupons." Alfalfa lands may be bought for 825 an acre, well set, and tho 'net yield is fully $8 an acre yearly, clear of all expenses, and a steady thing, one year after another. Agricultural implements pass through the street in steady procession especially wheat harvesters. As the eastern part of this state has been drowned out this spring, this end of it is expected to come out stronger and to make an extra effort. This it is certain to do, and no mistake. Western Kansas will eome to the front this yeur, most certainly. The teachers' institute begins Its annual session this week, directed by Miss 1011a Smith, of Emporia. About sslxty teuchers are enrolled for attendance, and the. prospects for u pleasant time are excellent. It is expected to last all the week. Attorneys from Omaha, Nebraska, ware here lust week, taking depositions about the- 0. J. Jones herd of buffaloes, now under attachment there for debt. The result no one here can predict safely, of course. Groat efforts are being made- to have a grand jollification on the Fourth of July. This town always comes out strong on that day, and everybody does their level best to enjoy themselves and get their country friends to do so. Ity way of getting a good ready for the Fourth, a grand horse race is to come off the 21st of this month between some local horse celebrities. At Inst an earnest effort is to be made to have an agricultural fair next October. No county in the west can make a finer showing. The last, in 188(1, astonished the entire state. A Clergyman's Crime. LONDON, June 7.—The Rev. Charles Douglas is charged with trying to indecently assault Florence Lhmtley, a Kl-year-old girl. From the evidence given before the police magistrate before whom Douglas was arraigned today at Paddington, it appears that the prisoner met the girl asshe was returning home. He accosted her and walked with her. He made improper proposals to her and offered her a sum of money if she would accompany him. The girl refused. They were in a lonely locality, and when he'saw that Florence would not do as he wished he tried to force her. The girl struggled desperately, young as she was, and her dress was nearly torn from her. She managed to escape from the grasp of Douglas, who had thrown hur down, and springing to her feet dashed uway from her assailant. A short time afterward Douglas met the eight-year-old sister of Florence, who was waiking along the road, and the miscreant attempted to assaulthcr. The cries of the child attracted the attention of a man. who ran to see what the trouble was and who grasped Douglas, who made a. most desperate resistance, fighting and biting in his efforts to break away from his captor. It was no use, and then wheedling and whining, he set forth the terrible disgrace that would come upon him if his offence wus made public and offered his cap- 4or a large sum of money if he would allow him to escape. Hut the captor, keeping a firm hold of him, marched him along until he.imet a constable, to whom he gave his prisoner in custody. Weather Indication,,. WASIIINOTOX, June 7.—For Kansas.— Fair weather to-day. warmer and fair Wednesday, and probably Thursday. A Cosmopolitan School. From Harper's Weekly. Until about a year ago the principal of Ward School No. 23 did not realize what a queer lot of pupils he had, although he had sometimes laughed over the strange collection of names upon the rolls. A year ago he took a census, and carefully traced out the exact part of the earth from which the parents of each of the pupils had come. He found that there were in his school no less than twenty-seven different nationalities, spealting about twenty-five languages other than English and its dialects. He found that of these sixteen were in the primary department alone. So not long afterward he arranged a novel feature to one of the school entertainments. At a certain place in the programme each child arose, holding in his or her hands two tlags. One was the American flag, the other the other the Hag of the nation from which the father had come. The visitors to the school were astonished. They recognized half a dozen tlags well known as the banners of European nations—Italian, German, Spanish, French, Swiss, and the like. Then they saw nearly a dozen others, recognizable from their shapes and colors and designs as the banners of barbaric or semi-barbaric countries known to us in a vague way as heathen. When these children, none being under five years of age, first come to this school, they are foreigners to the very core. They speak the language of their fathers, and perhaps have never even heard the sound of an English word. They are of the country from which their parents came both in customB and ideas. Their clotning alone bears the stamp of America, and that so out of accord with their faces and expressions that they seem ill at ease, and even more poorly clad than they really are. They enter the primary department. And here it may be said that although the youngest are flye years old the ages of many extend upward toward eighteen and twenty years. It is the business of Miss Rose O'Neill and her seven assistants to teach these children the English language, and then to make American children out of them. Go into the school at the be ginning of the school year, and you will think the task hopeless, impossible. Come back at the end of six months, and if you close your eyes and listen to the reading exercises, you will not be able to distinguish Chinese child or Arab child or Tunisian child from the few pure-blooded Americans who form the curiosities of the school. Then you will wonder how the miracle has been performed, and when Miss O'Neill explains it to yon, von will marvel at its simplicity. World's Fair Notes. The collection of world's fair oxhib its in Montana is facilitated by the Northern Pacific and Great Northern railroads having generously agreed to carry them free between local points, The press association of Mississippi; at its recent annual convention, decided to co-operate heartily with the Women's Columbian organization in Its efforts to raise a fund for the state's representation at the exposition. More than 87,000 worth of granite and other building matorial has heeu donated for the Maine world's fair ouilding. Cash to the amount of 815,000 will be expended upon the structure, 810,000 coming out of the state's appropriation and $5,000 being raised by subscription. Monson slate will cover the roof, which u Maine newspaper declares will bo the "handsomest in Chicago." Leading up to the building will be broad granite steps, each one being a solid block twenty-seven feet long and six feet wide. In lighting the world's fair, 112,032 incandescent lamps, of ltl-cundla power each will be used, according to present estimates. The coutraet for furnishing and maintaining these lights haB just been let to George Wcstlnghousc, Jr., for 8339,000. This is more than 81,300,000 less than the Edison-Thompson-Ilouston electrical combine, or trust, first asked for the work. This immense saving was effected by rejecting the bids and re-advertising. Mr. Wes tinghouse is required to file a bond for 81,000,000 by June 10, to guarantee th°. faithful execution of his In addition to the incandescent lamps, about 5,(100 arc lights of 2,1 iio-candle power each will be used. The contract for these was let some tirce ago at 830 per lamp. A dispatch from Christiana says that subscriptions are being solicited towards defraying the cost of building and manning the Viking ship, which it is proposed to send to the world's fair. It is the intontion to man the- ship with the ablest Norwegian sailors procurable and to navigate it across the Atlantic, although the attempt is regarded as a very hazardous one. When the ship is on exhibition at Chicago, alongside the car- avals of Columbus, it is thought the Norwegian flag, floating from masthead, will bear witness to the intrepidity of Norse seamen, both "in olden days and at present. Those having the enterprise in charge will publish two pnmphlets, one on the Viking ship and the other on the discoveries of Leif Ericsson. A Spanish club has been organized by a number of Chicago women who speak that language. The object is to make pleasant in/ every way the visit of Spanish visitors to the exposition, by supplying them with guides and interpreters, and by otherwise providing for their comfort and accommodation. The project has the warm indorsement and support of the president of the board of lady managers. Instead of a reproduction of an Aztec temple Mexico will construct a typical hacienda, or residence of a wealthy landed proprietor. This will be decorated in lavish manner with Mexican fruits and flowers and archieo- logical and ethnological specimens. The Mexican exhibit will illustrate the present condition and resources anil products of the country rather than its past history. HIS SCHEME. He Unfolds It to lilv. .Sr.ute.ash, but There Aru No Uctui-iis. Mr. Spoteash sat in his private office. There came a knock at the door and a man entji ed. "This is Mr. Spotcash, is it not?" lie asked. "It is." "My uamo is Ardup—Orville Ardup." "Well, sir, what can I" "Well, I am tho inventor of a devico that will require a little capital to develop it, but there is a big fortune in it. and I am willing to go shares with any man that will furnish the money. 1 have come to you first, because of your well known" "Skip all that. Coma to business." "Yes, sir. Briefly, Mr. Spotcash, 1 have hit upon an idea which, if carried into practical effect, will prevent trousers from bagging at the knees. It will absolutely and forever do away with the unsightly" "Pshaw!" "Hear mo out, Mr. Spotcash.... .Tho great disfigurement of masculine attire today is baggy kneed trousers. Evory tailor, every man of fashion, every per 1 son who has given the subject any thought whatever will tell you the Bame thing. Witness the efforts made by well dressed men to overcome this defect. Observe how carefully some of them pull up the garment at the knees when they sit down, See what pains others take to retain the fore and uft crease up and down the legs. Candidly, Mr. Spotcash, do you admire creased pants—I beg pardon—trousers?" "Why" "Of course you do not. Four or five years ago a man with a pair of creased trousers would have been blackballed by any club and would have been steered into a back seat by the usher at any fashionable church as a second rate chap who wore hand-me-downs. How is it now? I know men personally, Mr. Spotcash, who make u practice of folding their trousers at night and placing them under their mattresses so that the crease shall bo there in the morning. Others put ironing boards or long wire stiffenors inside the legs of the garment for the same purpose. But it doesn 't work, sir. It is only a makeshift. It merely puts off the catastrophe. The baggy kneo is inherent in the garment itself as now made. Mark me—I say as now made. My plan is to attack the evil in tho beginning—to dostroy the possibility of baggy knees by making the fabrio of something that will not bag." "That is simply preposter" "1 beg your pardon, Mr. Spotcash. It seemed so to me at first. But nothing is insurmonntablo to a man of energy and resources. Tho idea occurred to me at first of fastening small elastic rubber bands or strips on the inner Bide of the knees, but I soon saw this would not do. Then I thought of tho plan of weaving the rubber into the cloth itself, but this would be equally objectionable. It would mako tho cloth wrinkle unequally and look odd. Finally the idea struck me of having the fabrio itself woven more tightly at the knee than anywhere else, so it could not give. You see tho philosophy of the thing. There is more strain at the knees than any other portion of the garment. Make it absolutoly unyielding at this point, and the question is solved. To do this of course will require special machinery applied to the looms now in use, and this is whore the expense" "But look here" "I know what you are thinkiug of now. You uro wondering why the rest of tho garment could not be shrunk in making, so it would expand more than the knees" "I am not thinking of anything of tho kind, sir. I have now given you five minutes of my time and I have no more to spare. Your invention or device, Mr." "Ardup, sir—Orville Ardup." "Is impossible, ridiculous, preposter- ous.aud there is no reason why this interview should be prolouged another minute. I have no money to invest in BOYS.

"I had thought of suggesting $10,000." said the caller, "as a suitable amount to spend in experimenting, but I am willing to come right to bedrock. Will you lend me $1.75 on the idea?" "I will not, sir." "Say a quarter of a dollar." "If you don't got out of here" "Shall we say fifteen emits?" "James!" "You needn't call anybody, sir," said the visitor, with offended dignity. "1 scorn to debase myself by any further application. I shall not come down another cent. I am now going across the way," he added, moving toward the door, "to lay a business proposition before the firm of Gettup & Howell, and when you see me again, sir, I shall probably be riding in a carriage with a pair of stump tailed roans in front and a Bide whiskered English coachman on the box." With a look of imperial scorn he went out, slamming Hie door helilnd him.— Chicago Tribune. A Voice from the Wilderness. THE MARKETS. MONEY AND STOCKS. NF.W YORK, .lune 7.—(Stock letter 1 furnished by the Kansas drain and Live Stock company. J—The tone of the stock gossip last night was bearish. The. last new attack on tho Heading deal in the courts in the attempt to secure a receiver for the Lehigh Valley road, claiming the Reading is insolvent is regarded ns. too silly to be worthy of discussion. A dispatch from Philadelphia was in circulation last night to the effect that Spreckel's sugar refinery was going tojstart up in opposition to the Armour refineries and without regard to trust, produced some sensation at Windsor last evening. The news is reported it the Stockholder this forenoon. The Germans in the trust declare there is no foundation in fact for this report, however, and Wasserman made a bet of $100 to $10 with, Mr. Clark last evening that the story was false.

CHICAGO. .June 7.—[Special advices received by the Kansas Grain andTLive Stock company.]—WHEAT—All markets opened nervous on account of the Hatch bill, and soon developed a decided weakness. The decline was checked by Washington specials saying it is the sentiment of the senate that the bill will not be>reaehed this session and that it will not pass the upper house if it is reached. It is already suggested that if the trading in futures is prohibited in the United States it will result in ; building up at Montreal or some other Canadian point. A large speculative business and incidentally the cash trade might follow. Foreign advices have been bullish from the continent, but rather bearish from the United Kingdom. Alleged state crop reports that could not be confirmed have figured largely to-day. The domestic news has been rather bullish from the winter wheat sections and bearish from the north west. Corn and oats were lower early but rallied sharply later in sympathy with wheat, though the crop news have been quite favorable from some sections, and better weather is promised by the weather bureau. PHOVIBIONS—Notwithstanding the light run of hogs and higher prices the stockyards the market opened easier and showed some weakness with Cudahy a liberal seller of ribs, and com mission houses sell pork and lard.
