Six children were injured, onV faUIly, and a house wrecked by a most peculiar nd - destroctire freak of the storm two miles sooth of here. The scene of destruction was on the Ed Ballard farm it the home of Harvey Queen. Lightning struck the house, .but no flrei was started and the building collapsed as if blown up with'druamite. , : .; ' Erery window light and door was blown. out and joists torn, away and 'scattered over the Held. The six children, who Were in the upper rooms, were stunned-and some were bruised in the debrU - ' Vernle Queen, 15 years of age, was buried deep in the mass of ruins and when her body was recovered she was still, alive, but cannot survive. On shoe was burned from her body and the waistband of her skirt was burning when i she was fonnd. One of her legs was fractured. Ada Queen , received a gash in the head and the others were more or leas Inured. John Queen brought the news of the accident and returned to the scene with Dr.; Robblns. . The house was found to be totally demolished, 'i ; . The six children had been . found by neighbors in the room below and all were severely stunned and covered up In the debris of the wrecked bnlldlng. Robert Seymonr, counting the children after they were rescued, noticed one missing. After a search fee saw a shoe, and digglsg away the timbers and other wreckage discovered the missing Yemie, about I years of age, lying apparently lifeless, her clothes and one shoe having been burped off her body, the waistband of her skirts alone remaining, still burning. He carried har to his house and sent for medical aid. The fire from her clothing' made her, body one big blister, from which she suffered greatly while conscious. She also was pained by the fracture of her. leg above the ankle and her condition is such the doctor believes she cannot recover. Ada, the eldest, has a cut In her forehead, and one of the smaller children had a severe gash on her head, but : their wounds are not considered dangerous. The bolt of lightning struck the southeast corner of ine building and ran down, entering the ground at three different places, but : no flre was started. It is thcught that an explosion occurred with terrific force, everything seeming to have beer, blown outward. Not a .light of glass remains or a door. left on its, hinges; even the bedstead upon which John Queen was lying, Jn another room,; was broken at the detachable connections.' and fell apart. ' The upper flood joists, ' the roof and the doors and casings were wrenched' away, part of them blown to the field beyond, and part dropping ' to the room - below, which was piled high with, the wrecked timbers and plaster, while the - rafters above were shattered Into toothpicks. The house was Insured for $300,: but the loss' will reach 4600., , .. ' , . Murder and Suicide. Fort Wayne, - Ind., June 28. William Nahrwald, a barber, S3 years old, last night shot and killed his wife and then, turned his weapon on himself, sending a bullet into his brain. No real cause is known for the tragedy, : but they were heard quarreling a few minutes before the shots were fired. Both had led. somewhat dissipated Uvea. Theyt were married in December. . Missouri Politician Dead. - Colorado Springs, Colo., June 2S. Leslie O'Rea, of Marshall, Mo., Is dead here after a week's illness. Prior to leaving home he recelTed the republican'nominatlon for con-cress. Hf was past commander of the Knights Templars. - ; ; - , -, PL ATT IS BREAKING DOWN. Friends Believe He Will Retire from - Active Politics. Washington. June 28. Serious reports have reached here from New York regarding the physical condition of Senator Piatt, of that Btate, It Is not asserted there is ' any Immediate causa of - alarm' and there is a conspicuous lack of detail as to the ; causes . which, have ,Ied to the supposed' break down. According to. the report received through political sources, entirely by men here supposed to be on the inside In New York politics, Mr. Piatt is breaking down visibly and will either have to retire from politics or suffer the penalty. - Just before he left New York for the Philadelphia .convention the senator stumbled over a chair or something of the kind and suffered some internal, injury. After he reached Philadelphia it developed that he had broken a rib, and this - was the cause of his leaving the convention ' the afternoon . before Roosevelt's nomination: was. decided upon by the leaders. Those who were thrown into intimate association with the great New York boss at Philadelphia Were forced to admit that he was not in good shape physically, and as a result seemed to have lost a great deal of his mental force. . The reports which. reach here now are along the same line and are to the effect that .Senator Piatt, never a particularly strong man, has at last begun to show the effect of the terrible strain to which, he has been subjected of late years. The senior senator from New York is only 67 years old, and he is less than a year the senior of Senator Depew. . ' Senator Piatt's health is is said to have been the subject of his own careful consideration. Some of his Intimate friends believe he' Is preparing to give up political life, or at least to turn over a great part of the work to his subordinates.1 Hitherto the "easy boss" has been a most Insistent autocrat. He has gone into the details of - politics and has fairly reveled In the idea of deciding on petty officers all over the state. He has been in public life for forty years, and during a large portion of that time has been an active factor In New York politics. . Besides that he has been at the head of a great express company for twenty years. . -: A1I this strenuous life, -it is said, has had its natural effect, and the gossips are turning toward Ben Odell as the one man above all others in New York upon whom Piatt's mantle is likely to fall. Odell Is likely to be the candidate for governor this year, and this will put him In a . place where he could readily succeed Piatt in 1903, ; if the senator should retire from politics, as has been recently intimated. - As his intimate friends know, Mr. Piatt has continued in politics as much for love of the game as for any: possibility of per-' sonal profit. He has enjoyed moving men about like chessmen on a board, but his control of state politics has become more and more of an arduous business, and if the New York gossips here can be believed the "old man's" physicians have notified him he must let go of the throttle soon or take the consequences, i Makes f 150,000 on Wheat. San Francisco, Cal., June 28. Maurice Casey,' manager of the Central Gas company of this city, made J 150, 000 on the recent bulge In wheat. Mr. Casey held 800,000 bushels of wheat In Chicago when the rise came, and on Monday, when the market was at its highest, he unloaded through, his k-cal agents. Chicago, June 28. The prohibition national convention adjourned sine die to day; after having .placed in nomination for president John G. Woolley, of Illinois, and for vice president Henry B. Metcalf, of Rhode Island. The nominations in each instance were made on the first -ballot. Only, two . candidates for the -presidential nominations were balloted for Mr. Wool-ley, and Rev. S. C. Swallow o Pennsylvania; -Hale Johnson, ; of Illinois, withdrawing his name at the last moment and throwing his strength to Mr. Woolley. This, undoubtedly, had' a great effect upon the result, as the convention earlier in the day had been nearly stampeded , for Swallow by; an eloquent speech of Homer L. Castle, of Pittsburg, and had the friends of the Pennsylvania parson forced a ballot at that, time, ', the result might have been different. For vice president, three candidates were balloted for, H. B. Metcalf, Thomas R. Caskardon, of West Virginia, and Rev. E JL. Eaton, of Iowa, Mr. Metcalf receiving an overwhelming majority of the votes cast." Immediately after the announcement of the result of the ballot for the presidential nomination, Rev. Mr. Swallow was proposed as the vice presidential nominee The convention went wild over the sug- gestion, but Dr. Swallow, after a hurried conference with the Pennsylvania delegation, refused to accept the nomination. During today's session Chairman Stewart, of the national committee, called for contributions for the campaign, and-over $7,000 was realized in a few minutes. Attendance Wan Larger. --. The attendance at the convention today-was much-larger than yesterday. Chairman Dickie rapped the convention to order at 10 o'clock. After a brief prayer by Rev.; C. H. Mead, of New Jersey, Chairman Johanna, of the committee on credentials, made a supplementary report, showing the delegates present numbered 730, representing forty states. On account of the failure of Dickie's voice, A. G. Wolfen-barger, of Nebraska, took the chair.' Nominations for President. . The nominations, for president were then ordered and Oliver Stewart was recognized to place John G. Woolley, of Illinois, in nomination. . - ' On the announcement of Woolley's name by Stewart the delegates cheered, shouted and waved flags and handkerchiefs. Geo. W. Gere, of Illinois, renominated Hale Johnson. He was followed by Homer L. Castle, of Pittsburg, who placed in nomination Rev. Samuel C. Swallow, of Pennsylvania. , . : As Castle concluded the most striking demonstration of the day occurred. Every delegate in the Pennsylvania section, with his hands full of gayly colored pampas plumes or with large" pictures of Swallow, jumped to his feet, shouting wildly, while in other sections of the hall the delegates blew horns and waved" state banners. The demonstration continued several minutes and apparently came near stampeding the convention. j Swallow's nomination ; was seconded by John Hiopp, of Colorado Ralph T. Cour-sey, of Delaware, seconded Woolley. Rev. E. E. Carr, of Illinois, attempted to make a seconding speech in favor of Swallow. He was the only Swallow adherent, in the delegation, and a big row arose over the protest of Illinois delegates that Carr did not represent them. Carr finally concluded amid roars, cheers and jeers. After several other seconding speeches were made the convention adjourned for an hour. On reassembling the roll call of states was begun, and it was i nearly 4 o'clock when it was completed and the conven tion was ready to ballot. ! - . v Hale Johnson, of Illinois, then took the platform. In a brief speech he thanked his friends . for their support, and then withdrew his name as a candidate. - Woolley Is Chosen. Amid considerable confusion the balloting then began. The vote was very close throughout, but with Woolley slightly - In the lead. It was not until the last state had been called, however, ' that Mr. Wool- ley's nomination -was assured. . When the result was announced, "Woolley 380, Swallow : 320," a perfect tempest f cheering ensued. The nomination, amid renewed cheers, was made unanimous. , A: A. Stevens, of Pennsylvania, then se cured the floor. ?'lt would make the tick et the strongest we ever had," he shouted. "to nominate S.C Swallow f on vice president." t This started the convention again. Hats, canes,: umbrellas, fans, pampas plumes and everything . but chairs filled the . air, -while the delegates,' already : hoarse from shouting:, lost their voices in a long continued roar of "Woolley,! Swallow; Wool-leyr Swallow." Somebody started "America,", and the delegates j and spectators joined with thunderous f accord in th words of the anthem. After a brief con-; ference the chairman of the Pennsylvania delegation ' announced that Dr. Swallow would not accept the nomination. .The roll -of states was then called for, nominations for1 the vice presidency. A. H. Morrill, of Massachusetts, placed Henry B. Metcalf, of Rhode Island, in nomination. A mo- tion to suspend . the rules and nominate' Metcalf by acclamation was lost by a close vote. . Dr, E. L, Eaton, of Des Moines, Ici.; Thomas R. Caskardon, of West Virginia, and J. S. Tate, of Tennessee, weFe placed in nomination. ! . , , ' '-' Mrv Tate, however, withdrew, his name. The roll was then called, f The result was an overwhelming vote infavor of Metcalf. The 'vote Was as follows: i Total votes cast 599; Metcalf 354. Caskardon 132," Eaton 113. A motion . by Dr. Eaton to make the nomination unanimous was ' carried; " and after resolutions of thanks had , been passed and a committee appointed to formally notify the candidates of their nomination, 'the convention; at 6 o'clock, adjourned sine die.

Stewart Severely Arraigns Both the Old Parties. Chicago, June 28. Oliver W. Stewart, in nominating-John G. Woolley for president at - the national prohibition convention. said in part: " The republican party has renominated the one. man in the United States wno is to blame for the existence of the army can teen, the . man who has committed this country to the imperial expansion of . the liauor traffic. The republican party has nominated a man who. by his official con duct, has- added thousands of votes to the prohibition nartv in the last year. in a Bhort-time the democratic party will meet in Kansas Cit.v and will name as its stand ard bearer a man who. pretending to be the sworn foe of trusts, monopolies and unholy combinations of wealth, has not dared to say a word against the liquor traffic that furnishes the corrupt and purchas able vote by which such commnations keep themselves intrenched in power. The issue will Boon be made between these two parties, and each of them, with hands red with - the blood of " the victims of the saloon and canteen, will beseech the. decent men of this country for support. In this campaign we, the prohibition ists, will hold true to our course ana win poll the largest vote in the party's history. One-of the marvels of . politics is the tenacious, bold the prohibition party has upon 'life. We" have seen minority parties rise and fall. TVe have seen our own vote increase and decrease. witnout saving elected .'a eovernor or a congressman, and with onlr an occasional representative in a legislature, with seemingly no sign of victory in the heavens, . the prohibition cartr ha3 continued to exist and meets here today with determination nnequaled. with spirit undaunted, with nope unchanged, and in the knowledge that, by our perseverance and faithfulness, we have made ours not only one of the most remarkable minority parties in the history of our country, but have maae it politically respectable. . The reason for 'this is not difficult to find. The nartr has had ever within It, as & vitalizing iorce,' a mignty moral princi ple. Believing that it is possible, whenever this nation so desires, to -prohibit the li- has been that whether we can ever pro hibit the traffic, in drink, at least we owe it to ourselves at once to go out of partnership with that awful iniquity. To this proposition have we clung through dis coura cements and misfortunes that would have overwhelmed a party with a purpose less high and noble. Cut that alone wouio not nave Deen sur ficient to have kept us In the field as an organization. Our safety has depended upon the spirit Inithe party that has ever turned away from the rocK or iosion upon w men minority parties so. frequently have been wrecked. . - ' ' Had we been willing la the past to trade our votes for paltry offices and nut our principles up tor sale lor tne saue or m creasing our chances or success ior our candidates we would long ago have disap peared, from the arena of national politics. Our continued sarety aepenas upon our remaining true to our first high principles. and : in our beln brave enough to stand by. those principles until we win humanity to them,-even If we do not elect a candidate In the next century. It is lor ns at this hour, to bear in mind the high and solemn duty toward the hundreds of thousands at home, and to the cause for which we stand. We want no tame campaign, if we are to poll the Increased vote that the party should have It must be Known to tne re motest confines of this country that the prohibition party is in the field and that it has a leader who is able to compel the old parties no longer to ignore, but to, re spect, the prohibitionists. xnis is not a time ior- experiments. e must not strive for an increased vote by any-other "means than by straight party work, votes will hurt, rather than neip, unless they come to stay to the finish. This, of all years. Is the one In which to convert men to the prohibition party. Give us, then, a leader of enthusiasm who can rtir the hearts of men. lve us a man whose elements of strength have already taken him into the forefront of the fight and made him the most prominent reform orator in America. He closed by naming John G. Woolley, "of every state." Washington, June 28. The talk concern Ing the vice presidency hinges largely upon the proposed visit of Croker anfl P, Senator. Murphy. to Mr. Bryan at Lincoln, Neb. - Their visit is said to be for the pur-' pose of , consulting with Mr. Bryan as t9 the New , York man who shall go on the ticket. 'Mr. Croker is favorable to ex-Senator Murphy, who is a wealthy brewer of Troy, and is popular both with tie Ger-mansjand the Irish in New York-state. Some' opposition to Mr. Hill has arh&T on account of his hostility to the income tax, which is regarded as one of the dem ocratic principles. It is also known that the party managers - do not favnr While this Is true, there is no ioubt tht his boom continues ta grow. Representative Gaines; of Tennessee, said today that he believed the Tennessee delegation would be for Hill. u Friends of Senator Daniel, of Yireinia are persistently pushing his boom. Con gressman buizer, of New York, has a'. ready opened his boom headquarters in Kansas City, but he will not be on hand until Friday or Saturday. There is a tre-' menddus sentiment for him, but he haa-declared himself out of the runnine. Maryland will present Gov. Smith at Kansas City as her favorite son. Mr Van- diver, chairman of the delegation, ear that not only, toe Maryland delegation, but. a number of sympathetic vots from' ad- -joining states, will be given for Smith, la case of a deadlock or the effort to get a southern man on ' the ticket, Gov. Smith and his friends will make an earnest fght for the place. Ex-Senator Gorman, who will not attend the convention, but whnu counsel will be sought and whose influence-will surely be felt at Kansas City, has assured the governor that he will aid him aau wame Den eve s it would be a gil thing for the party to nominate him. The strongest argument for this ehmr is that Gov. Smith would expect to swing Maryland and West Virginia back into tha democratic column. There is. hn, little practical force in this line of re'. soning. Gov. Smith is a gold democrat, but voted for Bryan in 1896. H f a banker and lumberman and lives oa the' iamous eastern store. In 1896 he was the democratio for United States senator. Ho was elected to the Fifty-sixth congress, but befc. h took his seat was chosen governor Vr i a delegate at largo to the Kansas City convention. His friends have for several weeks been pushing a quiet inquiry among' Boutnern ana eastern aeiegates In his be-half. " Representative Livingston, of Georeia. the father of the delegation from that state In congress and one of the shrewdest politicians in the south, has announced himself for Bryan and Hill. He says: "The situation that confronts us now i a practical one. We will have to look at it from a practical standpoint, and act accordingly. What we need Js a man who can bring us a state, a doubtful state at that. New York is in doubt. W hav, a better chance to carry it than the repub-' licans nnaer proper- circumstances. I would be willing to say to the New York leaders, 'Get together, select, a man who can swing your state and I will stand by him, and I hope that David B. Hill will be the man selected. He will be a match for the 'Rough Rider Teddy." MAY 'OT NAME BRYAN JCLY 4. PENNSYLVANIA'S SON PRESENTED. Dr. Swallow Placed tn Nomination - 'T ,by Homer L. Castle. Chicago; June 28. Homer . 1. Castle, In nominating Dr. S. C. Swallow for presi dent at the prohibition national convention, said in part;.-; ; ' Pennsylvania presents to this convention her ereetings and offers you the services cf oi-e of . her favorite sons as a standard bearer in this arreat onward march, the aim a uc. object of which is to make possible a Christian civilization In a, Christian lana, possessed and -owned by a truly Christlike people. : t-i-.r"-; 'v--":S--- If we have the man with the necessary qualifications to step to the front and carry this -flag of prohibition as nearly to victory as could any other man,: then in the name of the fitness of things we ougnt to be permitted to name the candidate of the prohibition party - for president or tne United States In the year of grace 1900. In answering the question, "Have yon such a man?" Mr. Castle pointed out. the qualifications of Mr. Swallow, and contln- ed : - He has a tremendous advantage; he Is a Methodist. The Methodist church seems to have gone stark mad crazy on the prop osition that It must have a Methodist president. It has paraphrased the old Quaker's advice to his son on . money matters : "Brethren,, get ; a Methodist president honestly if thee - can. but get the president. Here is a chance to be true and tret the president. You - are ready for a light from today until the polls close tn November. You want i to hunt down and expose falsehood, sham, hypocrisy, caat. - vou want to ex pose wickedness, whether It be in high or low places, xou want this country to un derstand that a government saloon Is as destructive tf life as a private saloon. You want to Insist to the voters or this nation that a man who will not keep his church vows and obligations cannot be trusted to keep his official vows and obligations. You want to tell it over and over again that whether it was wise or otherwise to an nex the Philippines, the practical result by which It has. been opened to the u nre-strained onslaught of the brewing Inter ests of this country is a crime before God, the magnitude of which dwarfs and belit tles to the Infinitesimal point the worst Spanish misrule which ever existed, v - You want It told from end to end of this broad land that whether . mono or bimetallism be the standard of value, that while we pour Into the - dramshops of America each year a sum equal to three times' the entire cost of the Spanish war poverty will exist and increase. You want the Christian church of this country to be told in language which cannot be misunderstood that if she Is to go into the new century; with any semblance of the power which she had in the last century - she must -break her alliance, social and political, with the liquor traffic, and go free and untrammeled to the work of conquest in his great name. You want a. man . to be your leader who shall be as straight and tall as the young Saul. He mast be as fearles and unsparing in the denunciation of sin in high places as was John the Baptist. He must be as untiring and persistent as 'a Paul. He must be as ready for sacrifice as a Stephen. .He must be- as stern and unrelenting as John Knox. - He must be as sweet tempered as a Melanchton. He mast, be as pure, clean, and noble minded as John Wesley. '.In a word, be must be such a one as showa by his life that be is an act of God,' his mind is a thought, his life a breath of divinity,; Such a man, ladies and gentlemen of the convention. ; J have the honor to present to you in the person of Silas C. Swallow, of, Pennsylvania, wnom" I nominate as a can-' didate for the office of -president of the united States, - - Qnestlon as to Time of Nominatloa Im Still in Doubt. Kansas City, June 28. The question of whether the nomination of William J. Bryan for president shall be made on tha Fourth of July may depend upon Marcus Daly, of Montana.' He. has threatened a contest against Senator Clark's delegation,, but he has not filed it Congressman W. S Cowherd says ha does- not believe that there is any reason able probability that thenjonvention will nominate Mr. Bryan on the first day. The advantage that might possibly be gained by nominating him on' the Fourth of July would be . offset by the awkwardness t making a nomination before the platform had been : made. There is a probability that the contests can be disposed of, but. Mr.' Cowherd argues i that the Montana contest, if it shall be filed, will requira - the taking of testimony,, and that will require until late at night if not until the next morning. - C. A. Walsh, secretary of the national committee, said that without discussing what was likely to be done he could see no reason that would necess? ily prevents the convention from nominating at the second session of the first day. The na tional committee will hear much of tno evidence offered In. contests, and have pretty thorough knowledge of which siae is right. The contests filed so far are from the District of Columbia, the Indian Ter ritory and Oklahoma territory. It so hap pens that none of the three has an eiec-; toral vote, and consequently they can De dealt with less cautiously than contests from states. If Dal v should fall tn 111 e the Montana contest and a threatened contest in Colo rado should fail to materialize, the territorial contests can be disposed of. as many contests have been before, by seating both delegations and giving each delegation half a vote. Even if this should be aon and the committee on credentials should be: able to report on the afternoon or the evening of convention day, there will be enough work to throw the nomination very late. L The convention will be openea - . . - .
