STATE OFFICERS ELECTED FOR THE ENSUING YEAR. The Three Divisions Merged in One Grand Body, the Largest In the United States. An Address by the Commander-in-Chief, Walter S. Payne Tha separate divisions of the Sons of Vet erans met yesterday and by noon each di vision had finished its work and adjourned sine die. At 2 o'clock the United Divisions &ssenv bled in the Knights of Labor Hall. General Walter S. Payne, Commander in-Chief, hav ing arrived in the city at noon from his home in Fostoria, Ohio, called the oonven- tinn to order and presided until the officers for the ensuing year were elected and duly installed. The election was a spirited one; one ballot for Colonel settled that office, there being but two candidates, E. J. Smith, of Harrisburg, and W. C. Eeem,of this city. The former was successful by a vote of 79 to 56. After the result of the election for Colonel was announced by the presiding officer, on motion of W. O. Keem the vote was made unanimous for Mr. Smith. For Lieu tenant Colonel E. E. Critchfield, of Mount Pleasant, and W. H. Himach, of Philipsburg, were nominated; the former was elected. For Major G. W. Kigg, of Philadelphia, was chosen. Each of the former divisions are repre sented in these throe offioers. The Division Council elected are W. C. Thompson, Camp No. 12G; W. H. Himach, of No. 130, and Alfred Fritz, of No. 54. E. K. Kennington, of Philadelphia, was unanimously elected Dolegate-at-Large to the National Encampment, at Des Moines, Iowa, in August next. Delegates to the same encampment are W. C. Eeem, J. W, Anderson, Hon. John S. Martin, J. Diffen-derfer and Harry Ereskey. Six alternates were also chosen. As soon as the installation took place Col. Smith and his officers took command of the Division. Shortly before adjourning the delegates of Western Pennsylvania Division presented through an appropriate address by a delegate a token of esteem in the shape of a handsome tea set to retiring Colonel, Geo. P. Brockway, of Titusville. The ware was purohased of Mr. G. W. Lackey. The pres ent was fully appreciated and accepted in a few remarks by Colonel Brockway. The Eastern Pennsylvania Division also presented retiring Colonel Charles J. Miller, of Philadelphia, with a silver cross, an em blem of his past rank. One of the most important questions for to-day is where the encampment will meet next year. Gettysburg is the only place we have yet heard prominently mentioned, but other places will likely be mentioned. NOTES. Colonel Payne leaves for his home to-day. Colonel Hammer has been dubbed "Mul- tum in Parvo." But a limited number of picnic tickets, remember, for sale. The encampment will be held to-morrow in Post No. 62 rooms. The delegates will have their pictures taken in a body to-day about noon. While the delegates attend to business well they show their fondness for amuse ment during recess. Owing to the large number of delegates leaving earlier than was expected, the parade this evening has been recalled by the General Committee. Through the well aimed Btrokes of par liamentary tactics of General Payne.a storm in the joint assembly which appeared in horizon was frustrated. After Camp No. 12 meets and goes through with routine work, it will give a camp fire in its room. A came fire will also be held in the hall of Post No. 408, under the auspices of Camp No. 183. Death of a Prominent Citizen of Martlns- burg. The following obituary note was prepared for yesterday's paper, but inadvertently omitted : "Frederick Hile, better known as 'Squire Hile, died at his home in Mar-tinsburg on Tuesday. Mr. Hile was aged about 55 years. In early life he lived on a farm near Martinsburg, but for the last eight or nine years he was a Justice of the Peace in the town, at the same time being a conveyancer, real estate agent, etc. Last fall he began to decline in health, his trouble being a liver disorder. Since spring he was bedfast,and his case was long since pro nounced hopeless by his physicians. His death, therefore, was not unexpected. He leaves a wife and four children, two sons and two daughters. John lives in Pretolia, Pa., and Calvin lives in Renovo. The two daughters are at home. Mr. Hile was a member of the German Reformed Church, and was a very devout Christian. The information of his death will be received with sorrow by all who knew him. A Car Load of Unfortunates En Ronte to Washington. Dr. J. E. Patterson, one of the surgeons stationed at the Soldiers Home at Milwau kee, had charge of a special car of deranged soldiers that passed through the city yesterday morning. They were being taken from Milwaukee to the Soldiers' Insane Asylum at Washington," D. C. Dr. Patterson stated that at present there were 1,700 inmates at the Milwaukee Home, and that there were 1,200 applicants for admission. He said that the Dayton, O., Home contained 5,000 soldiers, Hampton, Va., 2,000 ; Togus, Ind., 2,000, and the new Home at Leavenworth, Kan., 1,500. The new Home to be built in California, for which $250,000 has been appropriated, will accommodate all of the soldiers who want admission from the Pacifio eoart. BOARD OF TRADE. Committee!

The deceased was born in Conemaugh township, Cambria oounty, February 25th, 1827. At the age of 25 he was elected constable of the township, and was re-elected a couple of times. In 1864 he removed to Johnstown, where he Berved four full terms as Justice of the Peace. He had just entered on his fifth term. He leaves a wife and four children. He was an active member of the Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias and Bed men. He was also a member of the Lutheran church. His funeral will take place to-morrow afternoon. August Gerstine, a well known and high ly respected citizen of Johnstown, died at that place Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Gerstine was born in Germany and came to Johnstown over thirty years ago, finding employment with the Cambria Iron Company. He is survived by his wife and six children. Mr. Gerstine was a soldier in the late war, being a member of Company F, One Hundred and Ninety-eighth P.

The Visitors, Taking Advantage of Etupld Errors In Onr.Infield, Gain a Slight Lead, but Undo Their Good Fortune by After Mlsplays. Johnstown won and lost a game of errors yesterday afternoon. About 600 persons were present, and, although Altoona finally won, there was not manifest the enthusiasm wont to follow a victory. In the earlier portion of the game Johnstown gained the lead through expensive errors in the Altoo-nas' infield, a lead which was recovered in the latter part through Johnstown's bungling. Saunders pitched a a fine game after he once settled down to business, and he was hit for a total of but five bases. It was amusing to see some of the more confident Johnstown sluggers fan the empty air, Although Saunders' balls came as though shot from a cannon Sharp seemed to have no trouble in holding them: He did not have a passed ball. The wonderful Bohn was found for a total of thirteen bases. Brodie covered left garden in masterly style, catching three menEout on lofty flies. Dwyer, who held a corresponding place in the Johnstown nine, made two expensive muffs. Score : ALTOONA. JOHNSTOWN. B. B. P. A. E. B. B. P. A. E. Donoh'e.m 12 1 Wood. r.

Yesterday's victory put Altoona in fourth place. Watch us soar 1 Cliilds' running catch of Sharp's high fly in the eighth was a feat worthy of a bigger an. Saunders, besides being a great pitcher, is a slugger from away back. He is also a daring base-runner. We win three-fourths of the time while abroad and all the time while at home, and slill we are not proud. The Altoona club plays at Johnstown to day and to-morrow. We propose to win one of these games, at least. STATE LEAGUE GAMES. At Beading Beading 10020000 12 Allentown.. 41400300 12 Base hits Beading 8, Allentown 26. Er rors Beading 6, Allentown 2.

From the Huntingdon JVems: "Horace Patterson, Bhipper of iron ore, whose mines ore located near Grafton, this county, has failed. His liabilities are $15,000, The principal creditors are the Marshall Bros., of Newport, Pa , and his mother, Mrs. Pat terson. The Marshall Bros, claim is based on various loans of money made to Mr. Patterson, which he expended in improving his property, especially in building a railroad two miles long, extending from his mines in Tussey's mountain to the line of the Huntingdon and Broad Top Eailroad, and supplying the same with an engine and thirteen individual cars. There are unpaid labor claims and mortgage of $8,000. The property is advertised to be sold by the Sheriff on the 21st inst." A Chance to Show Tour Patriotism. A movement is on foot, and its success is already assured, which will afford our citizens the grandest exhibition of pyrotechnics in the history of Altoona. One hundred dollars have already been subscribed toward a fond to purchase fire works to be put off on Gospel Hill on the night of July 4. The display will be plainly visible from all parts of the city. Now let those persons who have so vigorously depreciated the lack of Fourth of July celebrations in the past join in making this a grand and memorable affair. All that is necessary to this end is money. This can be left in any quaulities at Thk Times office, when it will be directly applied to the fire-works fund. Let everybody respond liberally! A Strong Combination. Our big-hearted little friend, James E. Winn, has taken another decisive step toward wealth and affluence by purchasing a one-half interest in the flourishing life, fire and accident insurance business of Mr. A. F. Kerr, so that it is Kerr & Winn, who will see to the safety of the public life and limb in the future. This combination possesses all the qualities necessary to put new life into an already big business, and we predict that they will soon have a corner in underwriting, so to speak. Success, gentleman, foil and free ! Free Transportation. Depot Officer Hamlin has been allowed a two months' vacation on account of sickness, and Officer Houck is performing his duties, Officer Hamlin has gone to his home in Cam den. When Philadelphia Express came in last night Policeman Houck discovered a man stealing a ride between the mail cars. The fellow alighted before the policeman got near enough to collar him and ran at a rapid gait down through the depot. Police man Houck pursued but was unable to catch up, though he secured several young cats which the trespasser shed as he fled. The traveler, it appears, was transporting live stock on the platforms of car instead of availing himself of the unexampled facilities afforded by this road. The Driving Park Association. By order of Mr. J. P. Levan, President of the Altoona Driving Park and Industrial Association, a meeting will be held this evening at 7.30 o'clock, Bharp, in the offioe of E. H. Flick, Esq., (Schenk Block). The object of the meeting is to fix the amount of capital stock, the par value of each share, and the taking of stock. There is no reason why Altoona should not have an association of this kind, and we trust our citizens will attend this meeting to-night and aid in furthering this enterprise. Altoona is behind many plaoes in the State of smaller population and less wealth, in not having a place to exhibit their products and wares. Let their be a good attendance. Natural Gia Causes Several Fires at Johnstown. The natural gas pressure was too strong in Johnstown early yesterday morning, and where it had been allowed to burn during the night it warped stoves and caused more or less damage. Swank & Co.'s hardware store was set on fire by the increased volume of a gas jet, and before the flames were extinguished the stock was damaged to the extent of $2,000 and the building $1,000. Several other buildings were slightly damaged by fires caused by the inoreased volume of gas. It seems that the Natural Gas Company have not got all the appliances necessary to keep the gas under control. A Little Parade of Their Own. As soon as the jolly Sons of Areterans discovered last night that the parade arranged for this evening was to be dispensed with they set about, in their own weak way, to make good the deficiency. If noise is any indication, they succeeded admirably. Having procured all the available drums and fifes in the several camps they started out, a hundred strong, and did the principal streets and avenues. Wherever they espied a house decorated in their honor they broke forth in loud and ringing cheers. No one interfered with their fun ; in fact it was refreshing to watch them. Gallllzlu's murderer Sentenced. James Wilson, convicted in the Cambria county Court at Ebensburg last week of voluntary manslaughter, for shooting and killing Michael Kusma, a Hungarian, at Gallitz-in, about three months ago, was brought into Court Tuesday morning for sentence. His Honor Judge Johnston, after dwelling for a time on the gravity of the crime and the punishment due to it, sentenced the prisoner to pay a fine of $100, costs of prosecution, and undergo an imprisonment of three years at hard labor in the penitentiary. A motion for a new trial was made, but the Court overruled it. Double Tragedy from Religious Differences. Jkrsey City, June 15. At noon to-day Charles Bnrch, a policeman, fired three shots at his wife, fatally wounding her and then shot himself in the head and died. He was suffering from . temporary insanity. Burch was 34 years old and had been on the force four years. He was a Protestant and his wife a Catholic. This caused many quarrels and the shooting this morning is believed to have resulted irom one of ' these quarrels. They had three children, the oldest being 10 years of age. Mr. Carnegie In London. New Yobk, June 15. A special cable dis patch to the Mail and Express says : "Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Carnegie have arrived at the Hotel Metropolis from the Isle of Wight. Mr. and Mrs. Gladstone called on them Monday, and during their visit Mr. Cham-berlain was announced. This created some awkwardness, but Mr. Gladstone, accepting the situation with his usual taot, entered into an earnest conversation with Mr. Chamberlain, and they parted amicably. Men of Steam. Williamsport, June 15, The annual session of the Holly District Steam Engineers, Superintendents and Managers' Association opened here to-day with a good at tendance. The organization is devoted to matters connected with steam supply interests and represents the majority of the States in the Union. President Foreman, of this city, presides. Reports were presented today by the Secretary and Treasurer. Various papers will be read to-morrow. Another Wild Day at Chicago. Chicago, June 15. The condition of af fairs on 'Change this afternoon is terrible. Kershaw & Co. are officially posted as having failed to go through the Clearing House. This means their collapse. The immediate cause of the failure was due to Bosenfield & Co., who garnished Kershaw's account in the American Exchange National Bank. Crosby & Co., a great house, has also collapsed. Officers Dofzlcr and Cherry were com pelled to arrest a horribly deformed old man who was lying in an exposed position on a street corner last night He has previously undergonea sentence for drunkenness. Oil Quotations. Pittsburgh, June 8. Oil closed at 62J. THE ROYAL PATIENTS. CONDITION- OF' EMPEROR WILLIAM GROWS MORE SERIOUS. He llecouios Conscious of the Gravity of His Situation and Talks of Death Fearfully Small Chances of the Crown Prince Surviving. London, June 14. The Frenoh papers do not give as hopeful reports of the German Emperor's condition as those of London. The former, although more sensational than the latter, still have the confidence of diplomatic ciroles upon this sujeot. A dispatch to the Figaro from the Berlin physician says : "The Emperor is a little better this morning. The change In his condition began on Saturday about noon, and he was allowed to receive visits from the Crown Prince and Crown Princess and from Prince William. General d'Aibe-dyll, Chief or the War Department, was allowed to see the Emperor for five mlnules to present his report. So says the offloial bulletin of the Court. But the Emperor was unable to listen to any reports to-day. He Is in a stale of restless weakness. The morphine administered to him, and to which he has not been accustomed, has had the effect of completely stopping bis digestive functions. His liver does not act regularly ; In a word, the situation, although better, Is far from being satisfactory." The Emperor for the first time, according to his physicians, is consoious of the gravity of the situation, and it was he that prompted the first note of alarm sounded in the Official Gazette of last Friday. Dr. von Lauer entreated him to sit up yesterday, but the Emperor refused to do so, saying that he knew well that he would never leave his bed again. He is affected mentally as well as physically. It is this mental change which has frightened most of those about him. The physical condition of the Prince Imperial is the same. Dr. Mackenzie said that he is convinced that there is nothing more than a wart about the size of a large pea. It is certain, however, that he does not tell the whole truth, because each of the fragments submitted to the examination of Prof. Virchow has attained this size, and the English doctor asserted that he had only removed a third of the flesh which obstructed the larynx. The German doctors continue to fear a cancerous affection. They say that, knowing the temperament of their patient for a number of yearB, they are more capable of giving an exact diagnosis than their English oolleague, who simply made one examination. Prof. Virchow examined minutely the particle sent him. His report fills four large folio pages. Here is an extract : "The specimen sent me to-day is part of au excresence, and which, as I have said In my first analysis, is nothing but an Inflammatory product. I could not at that time arrive at anything but a negative conclusion. To-day I can say that the case is ourable if the character of the excresence does not change a state of affairs which occurs but seldom in the treatment of this malady, which is called pachy-dumia varlcosa. Frequent operations are necessary for a complete euro. These operations might provoke Inflammation, which In turn would prove dangerous." In fine, the English doctor says that a cure is possible, while the German doctors would say, if they were allowed to speak, that there yet remains some hope of recovery. But no one believes in the probable good turn of such a terrible malady. Statistics show that ninety-nine cases out of a hundred prove fatal. THE JUBILEE YACHT BAOE. London, June 15. The steamer Norham Castle, from which the Prince of Wales started the Jubilee Yaoht race yesterday, but which he left at Mouse Light and returned to London, reached Harwich at 5 o'olock this morning. The fog had been so thick during the night that the vessel was obliged to anchor. Five hundred and eighty of her passengers remained aboard all night and landed at Harwich this morning and returned to London. The Genesta passed the Norham Castle during the night. The Dawn passed thirty-fiye minutes later and was followed five minutes afterward by the Aline. The weather continues hazy. The wind is from the southeast. An Impostant Decision. Washington, June 15. The Inter state Commerce Commissioners rendered to night its long-expected decision upon the fourth section of the Inter-State Commerce act, whioh prohibits greater charge for trans portation of passengers and property over a shorter than over a longer distance in the same direction under substantially similar, circumstances and conditions. The commissioners say that the carrier must judge for itself what are the substantially similar circumstances and conditions which prelude the special rate, rebate or drawback which is made un-lawiql by the second section, since no tribu nal is empowered to judge tor it until after the carrier has acted, and then only for the purpose of determining wbeter its action constitutes a violation of the law. John Whitehead lu Lark. Huntingdon, June 15. John Whitehead, of this city, the veteran coal operator, has been engaged in prospecting for the newly chartered Caledonia Coal Company, in which he is a stockholder, in a new field on the Allegheny Valley Eailroad, west of Driftwood, Clinton county, and has found one of the largest and richest veins of bituminous coal in the State. It is four feet eight inches thick, and un-delies the whole of the immense tract of 26,-000 acres owned by the company. Preparations will at once be made for mining upon the most extensive scale. Chiindler'd Election Formally Annoancpil. Concobd, N. H., June 15. The Senate and House met in joint convention at noon to-day for the purpose of electing a United States Senator for the unexpired term ending March 4, 1889. The journals of both branches were read, showing that William E. Chandler has received a majority of votes in each, and he was accordingly declared duly elected.
