Mret 1,800 JteprpnentfttlTei of JDlVWM Interest* In Conference at Cincinnati-* A New Party May fl* Bowl. CINCINNATI, May 20.—The national onion conference of representatives of khe various farmers 1 alliances and industrial organizations was called to order at 2:30 o'clock p. m. Tuesday in the music hall by Capt. C. A. Powers, of Torre Haute, Ind. The hall has a seating capacity of 4,000, but the crowd of delegates and outsiders was large enough to fill every portion of the structure. Charles Cunningham, of Arkansas, was chosen temporary chairman. The lower part of the hall, which seats about 2,200, was two-thirds filled, and the report of the committee on credentials show that there are 1,334 delegates in attendance. In all twenty-seven states are represented and three of the territories. When the convention was called to order all joined in singing "America." Rev. D. T. Foster, of Cincinnati, now invoked the throne of grace, beseeching victory against the powers of evil in the name of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. The delegates repeated with him the Lord's Prayer. Capt. Power, of Indiana, then read the official call for this conference and requested the various organizations therein named to rise as their names were called, which was done, applause greeting the' appearance of ex-federal and confederate soldiers, also the Farmers' Alliance, which showed great strength. Next came the Citizens' Alliance and the Knights of Labor, the Colored Faimers' Alliance, which Mr. Power stated were a million strong, and ever ready to do battle. Hearty applause greeted each. The following names were adopted as members of the committee on resolutions, with instructions to go into session immediately and prepare the convention's platform: Arkansas, J. O. Bush; California, H. E. Dillon; Colorado, E. G. Curtis; Connecticut, Robert Shine; South Dakota, Charles M. Fee; District of Columbia, D. A. Bland; Georgia, F. C. Post; Illinois, James M.

B. Osborne; Texas, J. H. Davis; West Virginia, Virgil A. Gains; Wisconsin, Robert Schilling; Wyoming, H. E. Shears. Adjournment was forced the moment < the committee on resolutions was announced. The committee on permanent organization selected Senator Peffer for permanent chairman. Senator Peffer, ot Kansas, was the orator of the evening at the mass meeting which began about 8 o'clock. He said the people before him were harbingers of a revolution that would dethrone money and reestablish the authority of the people. It was a movement not to destroy but to create; not to tear down but build up; not to destroy the wealth of the rich but to restore to labor its just reward. Referring to the placard oil the balcony of the hall, "Nine Million Mortgaged Homes," he said that told volumes. "But," said he, "I am met with the charge that the men themselves should have kept out of debt. This was an assertion not pertinent. If a child is sick unto death," said he, "the father does not upbraid him with impudence, but calls a physician and saves the child's life first. We want to save our lives'first. The disease of mortal usury must be cured." Growing more fervid in his manner the speaker said: "What shall we do with the money power? Let it it alone. We'll raise up a power among the people and make our own money and use it. [Tremendous applause.! Take their railroads? No. We'll build our own railroads. [Renewed applause.] Are we to destroy? No. To fight? Yes, with ballots and prayer, for the alliance is In a great measure taking the place of the churches." Mr. Peffer closed by giving the new party a great boom like this: "Does this mean a new party? [Cries of "Yes."] What else are we hear for? [Applause] The prophecy of the hour is that a new party is to be born here and its name, is to be the 'national party.'" [Applause.] The next speaker was one who had not been advertised, but who received a greeting that seemed to raise the vaulted roof. It was General Master AVorkman Powderly. He said with animation: "For twenty years men who have followed that banner (pointing to a Knights of Labor flag in the rear of the stage) have taught, believed and held those truths. It has bees charged that I am here to head off the third- party movement. Why, if your movement Is so weak that one small man can head it off it is not worth the name of u movement. [Cheers.] I have been charged with failing to lead this movement. My friends, this movement is too large to be led by any one man [Cheers.] No one man can lead it or stop it." [Wild applause.) Mr, Powderly went on to warn the conference against undue haste. No president could be elected this time if it were tried. Speaking to the Kansas men, he said they did not understand the situation in his part of the country, where ignorant foreigners were brought to the polls and voted by number. Kansas, had an intelligent constituency. Pennsylvania required patient education and the success of the reform movement depended upon the education of the people. "The Knights of Labor," he concluded, "will vote the principles of their organization, and when you form a party embodying such principles as have been announced here to-night you will find every Knight of Labor standing at the polls and doing his full duty." FLED BRAZIL flank-Wrecker Mftrnh, of Philadelphia, •lamp* Mis Hall-City Treasurer Bard** ley Resign* and Assign* because of th* Keystone National Bank's Failure — The State and City Are Henry Loser*. PHILADELPHIA,' May 33.—A great •ensation was created in financial circles when it became known Thursday afternoon that O. W. Marsh, president of the defunct Keystone national bank, had forfeited his ball and fled to parts unknown. The exeitdinent was intensified an hour later, when a brief line was read in the common council of the city from City Treasurer Bardsley announcing his resignation of his office, to take effect on the 80th inst, The sensation will be Increased to-day when the people read a statement in the morning papers which Mr. Bardsley has just given out in which he virtually confesses that he has embezzled $930,000, money belonging to the state, and announces his purpose to assign his property and such restitution as is in his power. Since the failure of the Keystone bank, in which Bardsley had on deposit 8441,000 belonging to the city, he has confessed that he had deposited, in the same institution, in his own name and mixed up with his private account, all the state money he has collected, but he has persistently refused to tell the amount, until in his statement just issued he places the amount so- lost at $930,000. As the statement of the bank shows no such amount of deposit to the credit of Both the method John Bai'dsley at the time of the failure, the inference is irresistible that Mr. Bardsley has drawn the money out and used it. In fact, as before stated, he has admitted that the state funds were deposited to his private account in the bank, Mr. Bardsley is responsible for the following sums: Due the state for taxes, $931,000; due the city for deposits in the Keystone bank, $441,000; due the city for deposits in the Spring Garden bank, $140,000; total, $1,518,000. The revelations regarding the state funds were a complete surprise to Bardsley's friends. What he has done with the money nobody except his counsel knows. The retention and loss of state funds is a misdemeanor, and Bardsley is prepared to go to jail if needs be. It is thought that this thing will lead to trouble for the state treasurer and auditor general, who should have compelled Bardsley to hand over the state funds before. So far as the city funds are concerned the city will lose more than half a million of dollars. When Gideon W. Marsh was president of the Keystone national bank, who is accused of falsifying the returns of the bank to the comptroller of the currency, was called at the examination Thursday morning Mr. Mai;sh failed to put in au appearance. His counsel stated that he did not know where he was, and that he had not seen him since last Saturday. Mr. Marsh was under $20,000 bond to appear at the examination. As his bondsmen were unable to produce him his bail was declared forfeited. The non-appearance at the hearing of Marsh, the accused president of the bank, caused a great sensation. His flight and forfeiture of his bail were a perfect sui-prise to his counsel, his bondsmen and his friends. As far as can be learned no one seems to know anything positive of Marsh's movements since he left the court-room Saturday last at the conclusion of the hearing that day. Marsh formerly lived at Ridley Park, a suburban town near here, but since the trouble into which he has fallen ho sold his property there and moved into the city. Some days ago he sent his family to Atlantic City, but diligent search there failed to find them. Baton!** ifee Chicago, St, Pfthl & . .
