8. HUTCHINSON DAILY NEWS, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8, 1892. UNCHANGED.! Continued from !irst page. Mass., reported to the convention this, morning that no prepress has l)ccn made. This throws the credential!* report over for a day, and postpones the permanent roll on which balloting must proceed. To the Harrison men, this will D"t he plea sunt news, for it is useless to conceal the fact that the administration forces are anxious to move tilings and force a declaration by open ballot and thus put on record those delef.ffi.tes who are not open and •avowed advocates of the president and ure inclined to stay in the doubtful e.ol nmn. Administration lenders were worsted last night in their efforts to keep the credentials committee at work until they could reach a decision, but today they fared a little better, perhaps, because, the Illaine men did not want to make another fight, for the commit' t.ce decided to continue in session and hear the Alabama light while, the chairman vrent to the convention to report. There was only one vote this morning and that indicates probably the greatest strength of the Harrison men. it was on a motion to report the. uncontested cases and resulted 20 to 112. lien, Cogswell said the credentials committee, would ask for more time VVm. Worrell of Jersey City, the colored :ilternat.e-at-large for John 1. Hlair. the Jersey millionaire, was in his sent his claims as alternate being admitted. The Silver Question. MINNKAI'OMK, June 8.—The sub-corn- initte.e of the committee on resolutions held its first session late lust night. Nothing was accomplished and no rc- port will lie reaily before to-morrow for the full committee. The meeting consumed most of the night. The simple free coinage question was put to the sub-committee and as was expected was lost by a vote of .1 to :;. This was the only vote taken. Then clime a resolution, prepared by the silver men declaring in favor of bimetallism and that the legislatures he recognized as the proper authority to linally pass upon any proposed silver measure. Alabama )>c lllocrnt*. MONTIIO.MK.UY, Ala.. June 8.—The Democratic state convention assembled here to-day to nominate a governor and state officers, and to elect delegates to the national convention. The race for the gubernatorial nomination is close between Thomas I). .Jones who now holds the oflice. and It. F. Xold, the Alliance candidate, with the chances in favor of the former.

THE ELCIN WATCH COMPANY. An Institution That Has Paid IU Manager Handsome Dividends. 1.1 CittcAOo, June 8.—Whether or not the stock of the Elgin National Watch <:ompttuy shall be increased from two million to five or six million dollars will be decided upon at a special meeting of the stockholders to-day. President Avery says that it is simply proposed to capitalize the accumulated surplus of recent years as a stock dividend to the present shareholders. The shares will remain of a par value of 81,000. Olllcers of the corporation suy they have no desire to make the stock a specula tive security, and that the increase in capitalization does not mean that they are. endeavoring to do anything of the kind. The stock has paid twenty pet- cent, dividends for many years,but the earnings have been largely in excess of this llgnrc. These surplus earnings have been put into the plant, and it is now proposed to give the stockholders something to represent such earnings. One object is, so it is stuted, to discourage people who undertake to build watch factories for one million dollars or so by drawing the attention of capitalists to the Elgin plant with the claim that it represents but 82,000,001) of investment. The plant of the comiJany alone represents over $1,000,000 at the present time. If this building were a struight structure thirty feet wide and three Ntories high it would have a total length of a mile and a half. It now gives employment to over 3,000 hands, male and female, with a pay roll of about 82,000,000 yearly. The present output is over I',000 watches a day. The surplus is somewhere between 2,- 000,1X10 uud 3,000,000, and the concern pays an annual dividend of 310 per cent. wii'8a,000,oon. IN FINANCIAL STRAITS. <Litm. Hofith of the Sulvutlon Army Issues a. Htlrrlnjt Appeal. NBW YOKK , June s.—A dispatch from London says;-1 The Salvation Army is in financial difficulties, and Uen. llooth has been compelled to issue a stirring appeal for aid. What is known as the "Darkest England" was started on the calculation that 8150,000 would be required annually for its development and maintenance. This estimate has proven correct, but of the sum total required for this year only 83o,ooo has so far been furnished, and which, togoth er with the dotieiekey of last year, has Drought operations practically to a stand-still. CleuA Booth says in the appeal that the 'disappointment lias •been very painfull to liim, but the fact that his spiritual fund is also exhausted and rapidly running behind is a difficulty more grevious still. The darkest England scheme was undertaken on the condition that the money required for its inauguration and maintenance would be supplied. This condition has not been carried out. Moreover, to carry on the war until self denial week in October, he will require with the income expected from other sources about $40,000. Unless this is forthcoming the army will he practically in a state of insolvency. WITH BRAVE HEARTS. The IVople of Oil City lire ItepulrlrifcT lb« Dnuuiffc Dune. On. dry. PH., June «.—After three days of excitement, violent grief and well pet-funned duties to the dead and living, this place has resumed business, recovered its lost nerve «n<l|is ready to look the future in the face with hope and' faith. Activity is returning and nervous dread and natural feur have gone. This morning seven unknown and unclaimed dead were hurried in Hill Grove, cemetery. Already there are ten "unknown dead," buried there. l!p to II o'clock to-day the relief fund of Oil City amounts to 5.11.07(1 and for Titnsville 8:>1.8:i5. The work of removing the ruins is being actively prosecuted by a force of SOU men. No efforts have as yet been made to clear away the ruins along the west side and fires are still burning among the rubbish. The relief committee has already given aid to almost TOO people, and it is believed the number will reach SOU. .Many of these will have to be taken care of for months. Stilted for Europe. Ni.w YOHK . June ,S.—De Wolf Hopper, the celebrated comedian and comic- opera star, sailed for Europe to-day. He will attend the international theatrical and music exposition which is lo be held in Vienna next month, as the representative of the theatrical interests of the United States, and will be entertained by several noted composers during his stay in the. Austrian capital. - YVwither imlleiltlons. WASHINGTON , June 8. —For Kansas.— Warmer: southerly winds and fair weather. Arizona's World's Fair Kxlillilt Arizona is planning to reproduce for its building at the exposition the famous Casa Grande, which stands in the southern part of the territory. The Casa Grande, which is probably the most remarkable and interesting prehistoric ruin in North America, was first visited by Europeans in 1.53 .S, by Cabe/.u de Vaca and his followers, of the ill-fated Ponce de Leon expedition. Four years later Coronada, during his expedition to the southwest, made it his headquarters. Then, as now, not even a tradition as to the race that built it remained among the surrounding tribes. The building was once the main gateway to an immense walled city, the ruins of which still cover the plains, and to such an extent that in the accurate estimation of scientists the city's population must have exceeded a hundred thousand. The remains of vast irrigating ditches and cemented reservoirs are found in the vicinity of the ruined city, Hy cleaning one of the irrigating ditches recently 150.000 acres of land were reclaimed. The ancient irrigation system will be shown by relief maps. The ruins of the Casa Grande are between live and six stories high and fifty feet square. They are composed of sun- dried brick, with heavy butressed walls, and, like all the other ancient ruins in that country, bear evidences of having been destroyed by fire, for the charred remains of rafters still cling to the wall. All about for miles and miles are strewn broken pottery, arrow heads and stone axes, which tell scientists that one day thousands of years ago that city blazed with fire and was deserted by a panic-stricken people. Casa Grande is the most famous feature of all thoHe old sun-baked ruins, and its unknown origin, the sudden and unaccountable flight and dissolution of the inhabitants of the city is guarded, and the deep mystery which has clung to it for ages, make it one of the most interesting subjects of scientific investigation. It will be, perhaps, on its reproduction at the fair, the most interesting building in which any of the states or territories will make headquarters. The Arizona exhibit will include minerals, semi-tropical fruits, petrified woods, onyx, meteoric iron, etc. A HEAETY WELCOME. ^ "Important." A French gentleman, engaged upon a profound scientific work, rang for his valet. Then lie sat down at his table and wrote a note: "Kindly send some ono to arrest the cook. She has stolen uiy purse." This he directed to the chief of police. The valet appeared, and while waiting for his master to finish writing hu picked up something that lay under Uio table. As ho took the note he said: "Monsieur, here is your purse. I found it under the table." "Ah, just in time. Give me the note. Jean." Ho added this postscript: "1 have found uiy purso. It is unnecessary to send any one," and handed the letter to the valet, saying: "Dolivor this at ouoe. It is important." Then he went back to his work.—Youth's Companion. Got Tired.

At the City's Representative Mayor Vfasliburue Will Do HIH Slmro—Er- sklne M. Phelps on Hospitality Xntant. Tho Journalists and the Clubs. ||j]HE national Democratic convention, which meets at Chicago on the 21st of June, bids fair to develop in n more marked degree than has over before been witnessed what may he termed tho social side of political life. The delegates, alternates, managers and prominent visitors, including, of course, the newspaper men, aro to bo entertained on a scale of sumptuous hospitality that, it is to be hoped, will not interfere with the proper performance of their duties oither in nominating n candidate for the presidency or in reporting the proceedings at the big wigwam. Naturally, Mayor Hempstead Wash- burnc, although a Republican, will figure largely us a prime mover in the plans for the diversion of distinguished guests. He is a young man of ability, social standing and unvarying politeness, and those who meet hiin will probably remember the occasion with pleasure. Through his courtesy and influence any who so desire will be enabled to view the charitable, penal and reformatory institutes, and if thoy ehooso to go still further they may explore, under detective guidance and care, the slums wherein vice and crime thrive beneath the mantle of night. If excursions of this sort aro not to their taste tho mayor can arrange for their reception at the public library and water works, or he can give them an exhibition of two things in which Chicago takes great and justifiable pride—the perfection of the police patrol system and the wonderful activity of the fire department in responding to an alarm. Although not at the head of tho system, the mayor can also give his callers some valuable suggestions regarding trips to the beautiful parks on the North, youth and West sides, and of course, on their own motion, those who can find time will run down to tho spot where the buildings of the World's Columbian exposition are beginning to dot the landscape along tho lake shore. But outside the realm of general sight seeing, and in the narrower limits of home hospitality and club receptions, the prominent part will of course be taken by a Democrat, and the one assigned to the congenial task is Erskine M. Phelps, the millionaire merchant, who is said to belong to all' the clubs in Chicago and to several of the most select in Boston, New York and Philadelphia. He is the founder of Chicago's "silk stocking" Democratic organization known as the Iroquois club, and actively championed Cleveland's causo in the campaign preceding his election to the presidency. Soma months after Mr. Cleveland's inauguration a story became current in Chicago, which was traced back to Mr. Eugene Field, and as he declined to say who told him, it has ever since been presumed that he concocted it. It is to the effect that one evening while Mr. Phelps sat in the reception rooms of the Iroquois club the telephone rang. The call was answered by a waiter, who said, "Mr. Phelps, some one wants to talk to you." The merchant went to the 'phone, and his side of the conversation ran like this: "Hellol" "Yes, it's I." "What! you don't moan itl" "Well, well, this JB an unexpected honor. Come over and have a bottle of wine." Then with bis face elate he turned to MB friends and exclaimed: "Gentlemen, the president has accorded me a great distinction; I am nominated for minister to England. May I consider you all my guests for the remainder of the evening?" "You may." Two hours later, in response to a telegram to Washington, came the crushing intelligouce that the Phelps chosen by Mr. Cleveland was a New England lawyer. Then everybody wont home. Whether or not the tale is true, and I am inclined to doubt it, the Chicago Mr. Phelps has remained one of the loaders of his party, and so far as hospitality to visitors is concerned will be distinctly in evidence during convention week. I MAYOR HEMPSTEAD WASHBCRNE. The newspaper representatives, of whom 850 will have seats in the Wigwam during the proceedings, can expect many "hours of ease" after their nightly reports aro filed at the telegraph office, in soulful communion with the good fellows of tho Press and White- chapel clubs. Comparatively few people are aware that the former organization, now occupying elegant quarters and numbering among its members some of the most brilliant and brainy men in America, owes its existence to the humorist who signs his articles "Mark Twain," and whose numerous hank Mooonts are kept in the name of Samuel L. Clemens. Ojn» nifbt some years ago several BOYS Nothing can stem the tide of trade flowing to this great store. GREAT SUIT SALE. , $20 and $25 Baltimore merchat tailor suits.

Ho chafed, fidgeted and when the cigars were passed around exclaimed: "Boys, this is altogether too formal for me. Don't yon know some adjacent rathske'.lar where there's sawdust on the floor, joy in the atmosphere and tobacco smoke thick enough to be mistaken for a London fog?" They did. At the snbsequent session the conversation turned on the then recent death of Louis Meachani, baseball reporter of the Chicago Tribune. "Poor old fellow," sighed one of his friends; "his entire assets consisted of the suit he wore and a ragged dollar bill we found in one of his pockets." Mark glared. "It's a shame," he cried, "that yon don'i organize. Form a press club, create a fund, arrange to take care of the sick, to aid the unfortunate and to bury the dead. Make your rooms bright and pleasant and get all the boys to join." Next day a preliminary meeting was held at which the Press club had its birth. Mark Twain suggested tho idea; Franc B. Wilkie, the first president, now deceased, "boomed" it with all tho energy of his assertive nature, and the members are now quartered in sumptuous apartments, have thousands of dol lars in bank and stand ready always to give their friends a good time, as in the case of the coming convention. In a certain sense the Whitechapel club is also a creation of the newspaper element. The grewsome character of its fittings—skulls, skeletons, hangmen 'B ropes, murderous weapons and BO on— is known of all men, yet noted people from various parts of the Union have been its guests, and have made merry to the rattling of bones and while seated around a cofiin shaped table.

CEPHAS PI: WEEDE, l'KODUCK. Chicago. CHICAGO , June 8. —[Special advices received by the Kansas Grain and Live Stock company.]— VVIIKAT —The trade to-day has hinged largely on the operations of one raau. It was agreed that if he should buy anything like the quantity he did yesterday, prices would go materially higher, but would naturally react if he kept out of the market. He is believed to have bought moderately on soft spot, but around 87 cents offerings were very liberal. It is believed that Partridge has bought so freely this week that he is in a position to hold off for a time on the remainder of his line. Showers and hot weather in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee are probably preparing the way for considerable damage by rust, and foreign crop advices have also been unfavorable. The situation seems critical for shorts. CORN AND OATS —Weather conditions are more favorable for corn, and prices have been easier, as a result prospects for oats do not improve. Provisions have been firm with little doing. The following ' Is the range of prices for active futures: Open'd Hlgh't. Low'Bt Clos'g, A ModeHt Euumluriiin Poet. There is at least one modest man in Ecuador, and he is a poet, who, according to his own ideas, is ono of the greatest tho world has ever produced. This human aggregation of the quintessence of modesty recently indited a letter to tho directors of the World's fair at Chicago, in which he coyly suggests that he be paid $5,000 for a poem, the hero of which is to lie Columbus. Ho states that it will »<iual tho "Iliad" or the "^Snoid," and writes: "1 will come to Chicago and recite tho poem. It will take nine days for Its delivery. There should he 50,000 copies of the poem printed, for which I beg you to appropriate |50,000." There is not much rfak in hazarding the opinion that the gentleman's "poem" will never be heard at the World's fair, or anywhere else, tot that matter. WHEAT. July August December... COllN.
