IT 111 JOHNSTOWN. Delegates of tne Centre Baptist Association of Pennsylvania. EVERYBODY AT SEA, Miners, Operators and the Country at Large Are Guessing. BISHOP RULIS0N DEAD. A Good Man Hai Been Called to Hit Reward in the Other World.

Bethlehem, September 1. The Right Rev. Nelson Somerville Rulison, D. bishop of Central Pennsylvania, died this afternoon after a brief illness at Manheim, Germany. Bishop Rulison has been indisposed for several months, aud by the action and desire of the diocesan convention held in June last, he waa given leave of absence for aix months for restoration to health.

Accompanied by one of his daughters, he Bailed for Europe on July 27, and has been under treatment at Manheim. Right Rev. Dr. Nelson Somerville Rulison was born at Carthage, Jefferson county, N.Y., on April 24. 1842.

He was was discussed in all its details, lbere was a unanimous sentiment in favor of forming a permanent organization to be known as the coal exchange. A committee was appointed to report a plan by which the smaller producers can be benefitted in the way of fairer prices from lake shippers. They are to make a report which is to give the ob jects and the mode of regulating the organizations. The committee will meet Friday and make a report to another meeting to be held Saturday afternoon at which it is expected to perfect 'the organization. It is claimed by some that the real object of the meeting was to confer with the lake shippers with a view of settling the strike at the 69 cent rate, but this was denied by those that take part in the meeting.

riTTsnrRc.September 1. Pittsburg coal operators will meet the national executive board of the United Mine Workers of America at 8 o'clock to-morrow morning at Columbus, O. A conference will be held and it is very probable that the big strike will be Bettled, not, however, until the miners of the Pittsburg district have a saw This, in brief, ia the situa tion and hopes are high that a settlement will follow the conference. That the miner's officials think favor ably of the proposition submitted by Thomas E. Young on behalf of the Senator Hanna interests is very evident.

A private message from District Presi dent Dolan to-night says the proposition will be considered, but that he was in favor of standing out for the 69 cent rate, pending arbitration. If the executive board decides otherwise, he said, he would not agree to it unless his constituents were consulted. From one of the operators it was learned to-night that some of the local officials of the miners were in favor of accepting the proposition and it is almost certain that a convention will be called. The End of Apache Kid. Silver City, X.

September 1. Apache Kid, the terror of the southwest, is dead. His bones lie bleaching in the sun on a lonely range of the Sierra Madre mountains, in Old Mexico, 100 miles south of the international line. After his last killings, near Ash Springs, he escaped across the boundary into the mountains of the Btate of Cumberland. Mexican troops tried to dislodge him, but his hiding place could not be found.

Some weeks Bince a squaw, who was supposed to have been with him at the time, returned to the San Carlos Indian reservation, from which she had previously beeu stolen by the wily savage. At first she disclaimed all knowledge of his whereabouts, but recently told her story. It was merely that the Kid had finally died from the effects of a loathsome disease. His remains were left lying where he breathed his last. Beynoldi a Winner.

New York, September 1. Three thousand persons saw Earl Reynolds, the bicycle skater of Chicago, defeat Charles J. Fox, the latter on a bicycle at Bath Beach to-night. This was the first competitive event on bicycle skates. The distance was one quarter of a mile straightaway.

The Bkater had a start of twenty yards and at the crack of the pistol be dashed away, leaving the bicycliBt behind. At the 300 yard mart Reynolds was leading by thirty yards. At the 600 yard mark the bicyclist was creeping upon the skater and alter a glance behind him Reynolds made a wonderful buret of speed. As they neared the tape thev werealmoBt neck and neck, but Reynolds crossed the tape first. The time announced was 33 4-5 seconds.

THIS MORNING'S FIEE. A Stable Burned on Bell Avenue Lost, $600. An alarm of fire was tumed in at 2.40 thiB morning from box 74, occasioned by the discovery of a blaze in the rear of the stable of H. S. Bartley, 515 Bell avenue.

The fire was accidental in its origin and probably started from a torch spark early in the evening. The building with its contents was destroyed, though the live Btock was gotten out in safety. The loss is about $600, with an insurance of $200. Injured by a Blast. Raymond WTagner, a resident of Royer, was brought to the hospital last evening suffering from injuries received at the Franklin Forge quarries about noon yesterday.

While he was preparing a blast it exploded prematurely, burning him badly across the back and about the legs. His hands are badly lacerated and burned, also, from the explosion. Wagner's condition is serious but not necessarily He is aged 21 years and unmarried. 1 Will Fuae. Lincoln, September 1.

The Tri-party alliance of the Nebraska free silver forces waa given good headway to-night by three large conventiona held respectively by the democrats, populists and free silver republicans. These gatherings, conducted under seperate organizations acted in perfect harmony and when routine work had been disposed of the representatives of the united parties gave their attention to addresses by leading free silver advocates. The nomination of a fusion state ticket seems assured. Stabbed a May6r, Toulon, September 1 As the mem-bers of the municipal council were leaving the town hall this evening after their regular meeting an attempt waa made upon the life of Mayor Pastoureau by a Corsican, who approached the mayor and stabbed him in the groin, inflicting a dangerous wound.

Old Town Grows In Fulloess Over Its Centennial. GOVERNORS DIKE TOGETHER The Eeadi of Pennsylvania and Maryland Break Bread and Have a Good Time Generally A Big Parade a Feature. EVERYBODY WAS WELL PLEASED Waynesboro, September 1. ThiB was "Governors Day" here. The governors of Pennsylvania and Maryland dined together at Buena Vista last night and to-day came to Waynesboro to par ticipate in the exercises.

This was really the centennial day of the town. It waa inaugurated with the ringing of bells, the blowing of whistles and the roar of cannon. The visiting organiza tions, firemen, Grand Army of the Republic posts, and secret societies and sightseers began arriving early and crowded the town. One of the notable events of the day was the unveiling of the soldiers granite monument erected by the Woman's Relief crops. T.

C. McCarrell, of Waynesboro, delivered the opening address' and President Judge John Stewart, of this county, followed. He paid fervent eulogy to the old soldiers "who helped to save the country which had been so gloriously wrested from monarchy the previous century." Rev. Herman s. Cooke.of Waynesboro, pronounced the benediction.

There were 2,000 men in line of parade this afternoon, among them the National Guard, the Grand Army veterans, the firemen, and detachments of Red Men and Golden Eagles from Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia. Major John M. Wolff was chief marshal, and the parade waa reviewed by Governors Hastings and Lowndes. In Governor Hastings's party were Secretary Latta, Auditor General Mylin, State Treasurer Haywood, Colonels Reynolds and Trex-ler, and Captain Taxton. The Maryland executive waB accompanied by Adjutant General Allison Wil-mer and Colonels Gerald T.

Hopkins and H. B. Wilcox. Governor Hastings, in a lengthy speech, attributed much of the success of the country to the union of church and state and public schools. He said he believed ignorant foreigners should be excluded unless they bowed down to our flag and institutions as Hindoos to the idol, and urged his hearers to so continue their devotion and faithfulness to aid in making the country still greater.

If they did not, he would not want to think that Waynesboro could reach her second centennial. In the course of his speech the governor said that when Penn established the boundaries of the state he should have gone further west into Ohio, so that it could have had a presidential candidate who could be elected. Governor Lowndes Bpoke of the close relations between the two states and encouraged the Waynesboro people "In whom all Mary landers took much interest," to continue their progress, industrial and intellectual. Both the governors, with their parties, left this evening. The day ended with a bicycle parade and concert.

To-morrow there will be a trades display and the bigeest crowd of the week is expected. Gold Democrats Confer. Philadelphia, September 1. A number of gold democrats who were prominent in the Jeffersonian democratic party of last fall held an informal conference to-night at the Hotel Walton and discussed the advisability of nominating a candidate for state treasurer and auditor general against the nom-nonees of the republican party and those nominated by the democratic convention in Reading yesterday. No definite conclusion was reached and the matter was laid over until to-morrow, when the state committee of the Jeffersonian party will hold a meeting in this city.

Among those present at to-night's conference were William B. Given, of Lancaster, chairman of the Jeffersonian state committee; Seth McCormick, of Williamsport; J. D. Hancock, of Venango county; John C. Bullitt, of Philadelphia, and ex-Chairman of the Democratic State Committee Robert E.

Wright. In addition to these there were a number of others known in the ranks of the gold democrats. Messrs. Wright and Hancock were of the opinion that a state ticket should be nominated on state issues with a view to recapturing the votes of a number of republicans. The prevailing opinion seems to be that if the Jeffersonian party waa organized on purely national issuea it should not become identified with a state contest.

The discussion throughout was without friction. nominated Beth low. New York, September 1. In the face of the ultimatum of the regular republican organization that it would refuse to endorse any candidate for the mayoralty of Greater New York who might be formally nominated in advance of the republican convention, the borough committees of the citizens' union to-day placed Seth Low, president of Columbia University, and twice mayor of Brooklyn, in nomination for the office indicated. A Double Crime.

Baltimore, September 1. John W. Oliver, to night, shot Kate Oliver, bis niece, and then shot himBelf. Both are seriously injured, the woman, it is thought, fatally. Jealousy is supposed to have been the motive for the shooting.

Oliver add his niece had lived together as man and wife for seven years. They are from Cumberland, Md. H6 iB 36 years of age and she is 24. The night: "lam not fully prepared at this nine to state just wnat course I shall follow. Mv Dl'oseilt inrlinflt.innn nrn in rlo.

Having had no intimation that I should be the nomi-nee, the newB of my nomination came to me as a snrrjrisp.

I am heartily in favor of the propositiona which it embodies. They represent our nartv's nnsitinn fairlv nnH hnnpot.lw Afw decision will be made in a few days." Changed His Name, Clearfield, September 1.

The anspected NicholB murderer, David WTeeks, who is detained in the Clearfield county jail on a warrant issued last night by Constable Woomer, of Morrisdale, this county, suid to-night that his name is James Dougherty, and his home in Saugerties, N. Y. He declares that he came to Clearfield by the Erie railroad from Salamanaca, N. Y. His statement thia morning that he had worked for Whittaker Irvin, at Curwensville.

six miles from here, as early aa June 13, is untrue. Investigation proved that Dougherty worked there only five days and another man (now supposed to be Charles A. Boinay, for whom a warrant had also been issued on the same charge) four days. The officers feel quite Bure that the prisoner is the man wanted for the murder of Nichols. George Marcus Nichols was murdered on the Daniels farm atTrumbell, Fairfield county, on July 20 last.

A reward of $4,500 was offered for the arrest of the murderer, $1,000 by the state of Connecticut; $1,000 by the town of Trumbell and $2,500 by relatives. Caught and Arrested. Special to the Tiuiiune. Bedford, September 1. Oliver Keys, a disreputable negro of this place, is under arrest for having committed one of the most daring robberiesever known here.

Yesterday J. T. Alsip, manager of the Bedford Springs, gave the mail car rier for the "Springs" two hundred dol-, lars to bank. Keys asked the carrier to allow him to ride to town with him, and permission having been granted, he quietly proceeded to pick the pockets of the mail carrier, who upon reaching the bank found the money missing, Keys was at once suspected and a watch placed upon him. He, however, took into his confidence another vagabond negro of the town, "Bill Gray," who in order to make the affair pay him, went to the father of the mail carrier and for a reward of twenty-five dollars offered to tell where the money was.

Both darkeys were at once arrested and the money, found in Key's possession. The case will be tried at the September court, when Keys will likely be sent to bis old haunts near Pittsburg. Hawaiian Annexation. San Francisco, September 1. The steamer Australia, from Honolulu direct, arrived to-day with the following Hawaiian advices: Francis M.

Hatch, minister to AVash-ington, arrived on August 20 with special information, which will require the attention of both government and senate and a secret notice has already been issued to the members of the latter body calling upon them to meet in extra session on September 6 to consider the question. Meanwhile Minister Hatch is in almost constant consultation with President Dole and his cabinet. The lawmakers will be asked to ratify the annexation treaty recently signed in Washington, and, as a majority of the members' favor annexation, the matter will be rushed through. The Safe Was Bobbed. Washington, September 1.

The safe of the district tax collector's office was robbed last night of all its contents, amounting to about $9,000 received during the day for taxes. The safe had not been tampered with and the police believe that Varick Hawkins, the negro' messenger for the tax collector, learned the combination and robbed the safe after office hours. He failed to report for duty to-day and the police are searching for him. It is said that he has been living beyond his means for some time, and has spent quite a large part of his salary on theatres and fast women, neglecting hia wife. i Elected Officers.

He had gone out to look after the cows.

BOTH SIDES ARE BDSY FIGURING Labor Leaden Say One Thing and the Operators Another Therefore, the Publio Can Simply Strike a Medium, Etc AND BOTH SIDES ARE RESTLESS Pittsburg, September 1. The Btriking coal miners and operators in Pittsburg are all at sea over the reported probable settlement of the strike. While both sides united in the hope that the great struggle will Boon be over, they all profess ignorance of the negotiations now eaid to be in progress with that end in view. Cameron Miller, ex-vice president of the United Mine Workers of America, received a telegram from President Ratchford this rooming denying the statement that he made a proposition to the strikers and saying he had an offer that he would submit to the executive board. Phis proposition comes from Thomas E.

Young, who represents the Mahon interests. The leading lake shippers who are in Pittsburg emphatically deuy that Mr. Young iB on the executive committee of their organization, or that he has any authority to represent them. The offer of 64 cents, they say, is higher than they are willing to make, but if it will bring about a settlement it would likely be accepted, Some of them said the proposi-, reported to have beeu made by President Ratchford was to start the mines at 69 cents, five Cents of which was to be retained until a decision had been given by the board of arbitration, would be satisfactory. They were inclined to believe that a settlement of some kind would be made within a few days.

They sti 11 contend, however, that if an agreement is reached at the miner's terms, the benefit will be only temporary, and the rate will go clown as soon as lake navigation closes. A large meeting of producers is in session at the Mouongahela house this afternoon, the object being to formulate some plans of ending the strike. Arrangements are being made to bring about a meeting with the lake shippers for the purpose of making an effort to fix prices which will be acceptable to the miners' officials. J. W.

Shields, a member of the committee appointed yesterday to arrange for the meeting, said the members will visit all the leading shippers and urge them to attend the general meeting, which probably will be held to-morrow. He believes something will be done to end the strike without resorting to the severe measures outlined by the large operators. Des Moines, September 1. The threatened miners' strike in thiB district culminated to day, and all miners except about 200 employed by the Christy, Flint Valley and Des Moines Coal and Mining companies, went out, following the lead pf the Carbondale miners of several days ago. It was decided, at a meeting held to-day, to stand by the demand for $1 a ton.

A conference committee was ap-doiuted to confer with the oprators. About 800 men are out. The operators issued a statement a few days ago, refusing to grant the price asked by the miners, and it is reasonably certain they will not give in. The present price is 75 and 80 cents.and the operators may grant 80, with a possibility of going to 90 cents. Dubois, September 1.

Three of the strike leaders, who, by intimidation and threats of violence, prevented the Adrian miners from working Monday, were arrested to-day by Sheriff Burns and are now in the Brookeville jail. Further arrests will follow. The three men arrested were armed with revolvers and knives. The delegate convention here to-day was held behind closed doors, and was not productive of result. The cfelegatea Boon after 11 o'clock and adjourned to give the committee time to formulate resolutions.

The second session lasted until evening and adjourned until 9 o'clock to-morrow morning. A seal was placed on the lips of every delegate before adjourning and not a word has escaped as to what was the sentiment of the convention. Nothing will be given out until final adjournment, Hazleton, September 1. The strike situation at Audenried to-night indicates a prolonged struggle. Acting President Warren and Manager Lawall, of the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal company this evening handed to Alexander McMullen, chairman of the strikers' committee, their ultimatum.

There is nothing encouraging in it and it ia a big surprise as well as a disappointment to those who have been acting as mediators. The committee declines 6 make any concession excepting to advance laborers from 90 cents to $1 per day. They decline to discuss the company store question or to consider the removal of Superintendent Jones. The latter was explained to the men at a mass meeting and the great excite ment followed. The Van Wickle officials were more successful at Milnesville this evening.

The men there decided to accept the terms, which grant them an advance in wages to equal the average of the region. It is an immediate concession. The Cole-raine workmen for the same company declined to accept. Whether the latter will prevent the Milnesville men from working to-morrow remains to be seen. Altogether the situation ia serious, and more trouble is looked to with no little apprehension.

Pittsburg, September 1. The first decisive steps toward forming a permanent organization of the independent coal producers of the Pittsburg district was taken to-day. A well attended meeting was held in the office of the Bly the Coal company. About twenty operators were in The meeting was in a graduated from the General Theological seminary of the Protestant Episcopal church in New York city, in 186(5, and was ordained to the ministry of that church the same year. He became assistant minister of the Church of the Annunciation in New York city in 1867, but in a short time accepted the rectorship of the Second church at Morris, N.Y., which pastorate he held until December, 1869.

There he remained until he waa elected assist ant bishop of the diocese of Central Pennsylvania in 1884. He was consecreated on October 2S ot that year, the lute Bishop M.

A. DeWolfe Howe, whose assistant he became, taking part in the consecration. On the death of Bishop Howe, in July, isvi, the assistant bishop be came the bishop of the diocese.

Several of his Bermona, preached on special occasions, have been published, and he wrote much in both vsrse and proBe for the religious press.

Kuhson was president of tne board of trustees of Lehigh university, and a member of the executive commit tee of the university and of the library committee. He is survived by four daughters: Mrs. C. P. Coleman, Mrs.

Rev. Dr. Elwood Worcester, of Philadel phia; Misa C. Constance Rulison, a Btu-dent at Bryn Mawr college, and Misa Edith Rulison. His body will be brought to this country for interment.

The others of the party were Miss Clara Jones, Miss 'Bessie Sheldon, Miss Laura Berg, Miss Ida Johnson and MiBS Lizzie Sheridan.
