,-.• p - "? THE 15KPUBL1CAN, IOWA, WKDKKSUAV, JULY IT, 1895. A HtlNDKED INJURED SAD ACCIDENT MARS THE SOCIAL ' SESSION OF THE ELKS DRAKE IS NAMED. At Atthntio CHy, N. J.—Cftftlno Handing CoJinpie*— A Thousand Iti ttie Banqaot Mall Precipitate;! to the Sloofr Beneath. Scot-en of tJnfoi-tunalt** fabricated trout the titiins ami Conveyed to liospltats nibd Hotel*, ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., July 12.—The social session tendered by Atlantic City lodge to the visiting Elks at the Baltic Avenue Casino, ended in a terrible disaster, in Which 100 persons Were in ore of less seriously injured* The session had just opened and only ono of the speakers had been heard,, when, without the slightest warning, the building, which had Hot been used for several years, collapsed and fully 1,000 persons were precipitated to the floor beneath. Many women, the wives of the visiting Elks, Went down in the ruin. Fully 200 persons Who wefe on the first floor of the building, and immediately beneath the banquet hall Were crushed beneath the timbers, dud lay helpless. The fact that all the electric lights in. tho building went out ?,t the time the building gave way, Added to tho Confusion. An alarm was immediately turned in and the city's force of 200 firemen and every police officer in the city were called to the scene as a hospital corps. The police ambulance and carriages of every description were utilized to convey the injured to the hospital and to the hotels. When the police and firemen arrived ou the scene the excitement was so intense that they scarcely knew where to begin first. An immense crowd of people had been attracted to the place by the noise of the falling building and the groans of the unfortunates, who were pinned be- and timbers. Within a the police succeeded in space in the immediate of the building and placed ropes around to keep the crowd bagk. In the meantime tho firemen had set to work to extricate the wounded from Beneath the Mass of Timbers, and they were aided in their work by the hotelkeepers and residents near the scene. As quickly as the unconscious forms of the wounded were taken out, willing hands bore them to the nearest place, and everything that surgical skill could do to alleviate their sufferings was done. ' The list of the injured cannot be fully compiled at present, but the following are the more seri- riously injured: James J. Armstrong, New York, both legs broken. Mayer Wolfe, Autlantic City, injured internally. Charles W. Tolwell, Camdeu, leg and arm broken. Frederick Claproth, Camden,. legs. • and, arms broken. P. Eckman, Camden, leg and arm broken. Frank Bolton, Atlantic City, shoulder crushed and otherwise injured. , Charles W. Foote, Minneapolis, maimed and bruised. Detective James .Doyle, Minneapolis, badly bruised and injured internally. Tho First Fatality. The first victim to succumb to his injuries was Frederick Claproth of Camden, N. J. He died shortly after midnight at a neighboring hotel to which he had been conveyed. It is now feared other deaths will result, and it is a matter of wonder that more persons who were on the under floor were not killed outright. The news of the disaster spread with such rapidity that by midnight messages were being received from anxious relatives of visiting Elks in all parts of the country. FIVE CHARRED BODIES. Republican* Settle the Content for Head of thfe Stfttn Tickfit. DES MOINES, July 18. -The Republi- Can state convention Was one of the largest and most memorable in the history of the party in loWft. There were 10 candidates for governor and six ballots were necessary to decide the contest, 3-esulting in the nomination of General F. M. Drake of Centerville for governor; Hon. Matt Pafrott of Waterloo was nominated for lieutenant governor on second ballot, and Supreme Judge Given, State Superintendent Sabin and Railroad Commissioner Perkins were renorninated. Senator Allison Was present and received with wild and enthusiastic demonstrations when his name was mentioned in connection With the presidency. The resolutions are conservative, mainly reiterating the Republican national platform on the cuirency and tariff questions. During the balloting for lieutenant governor General Drake reached the convention hall and made a short speech containing very happy allusions to his competitots before the convention. Ho said he was prepared to make a vigorous campaign upon the broad, national platform adopted by tho convention. THE SILVER DEBATE. ACTIVE CHRISTIANS ENDEAVOR DELEGATES HOLD MANY MEETINGS.

Five horribly burned and charred bodies have been taken out awaiting burial, and one other person is missing, There were many narrow escapes and heroic rescues by the firemen and police. There were about 80 horses stabled in tbe basement, all of which were gotten out with tbe exception of O, A, Graves' Ethel G,, valued at $1,000, and one of less value, FRIGHTFUL WRECK, Thirteen Killed in a Grant* Tronic .

Rules That Are to Govern Mr. I-Iorr nnd Mr* Harvey. CHICAGO, July 18.—The rules governing the Horr-Harvey silver debate, which is to begin Tuesday, July 16, are about completed. The main provisions are that the doctrines set forth in "Coin's Financial School" shall form the basis of the discussion, one chapter being discussed each day. Three hours a day will be devoted to each chapter. To prevent set speeches, the maximum number of words that can be used in answering any question or stating a proposition will be 1,000. The last half hour of each session will be devoted to questions from outsiders present, no one being allowed to ask more than three. The disputants are to take the affirmative or negative at their pleasure, as the debate proceeds. Neither disputant is to delay more than three minutes in giving his statement, answer or question, after the other has finished speaking, that time being allowed to give an opportunity for consulting authorities or assistants, 10 of whom each disputant may have. The Union league, Marquette and other clubs have tendered the usa of their rooms, but no selection has been made. NOT A CANDIDATE. Sherman Declares He Don't Want tbe Presidential Nomination. CHICAGO, July 15.—A Times-Herald special from Mansfield, O., says: Senator John Sherman was seen at his residence Saturday and his views asked on presidential politics. He said he was not a candidate and added: "If all the people of the United States should join together and offer it to me I would not accept the position. I am too old. No man of 72 has the right to undertake the work and the responsibility which come to the chief executive of the United States. It is a position of wear and tear and it should have a younger man." ENGLISH DON'T LIKE IT. Saying Unpleasant Things on Account o( Cornell'* Action. HENLEY-ON-THAMES, July 10.—Tbe first day of the 56th anniversary of the water derby of Great Britain was a disappointment to all concerned. Cornell was pitted against the crew of the Leander boat club, composed of ex- Oxford and Cambridge oarsmen, and said to be the strongest on the river. There was some confusion at tbe start, owing to the presence near the starting line of a number of boats which seriously interfered with Leander, Consequently tbe latter was somewhat slow in getting into position. Then, when the umpire asked if the two crews were ready, Cornell promptly answered "Yes," and the umpire claims Leander did the same. This, the Leanders deny. In any case, tbe umpire gave the word "Go" and the Cornell Crew Shot Away. But only half the Leander crew started and their stroke protested that they were not ready. In spite of this the umpire allowed Cornell to pull over the course and awarded the Americans the race. Tbe Leanders have lodged a protest against the umpire's decision-and it was referred to the board of stewards, but the board did not change it, CORNELL BADLY BEATEN, Finish Eight Lengths Behind Trinity, Utterly exhausted* HENLEY, July 11.—Cornell and Trinity Hall started in the fourth heat of the trials for the grand challenge cup at 13;8Q p. m, At the half-mile Cornell was leading, but Trinity Hall won the race by eight lengths, the Cornell prew being utterly exhausted at the finish.

Unwearied by the fervor of the huge morning meetings iu these centers; not tired by the earnest noon rallies in different places where congregate the toilers of Boston, and unsatisfied by the encouragement gained at the 15 general committee meetings in the afternoon, the Christians gathered 26,000 strong at the big meetings at the three great auditoriums of Mechanics' hall and tents Endeavor and Williston, At Mechanics' hall the address of Rev. A. C. Dison, D. D M of Brooklyn, attracted thousands, while other thousands were drawn to tent Williston by the announcement of an address by Rev. Henry Montgomery of Belfast, one of the ecclesiastical triumvurate of European fame, Spur- geou, Brown and Montgomery. Penn- sylvauiaus were partial to the Mechanics' building because Rev. J. T. Me- Creery, D. D., of Pittsburg, widely aud favorably known throughout the Keystone state, was one of the speakers. Among other good speakers at tent Endeavor was Rev. Heil Delk of Ha- geratown, Md., whose subject was "Ceutrality of Christian Fellowship." At tents Endeavor and Williston, the 6-niinute greetings of Endeavorers from the four corners of the earth, constituting that part of the programme designated "The Parliament of Nations," were both encouraging and instructive, and at all three meetings the presentation of a banner to a local union for best work in promoting local fellowship was a happy incident. The Morning Sessions. The morning sessions of the convention in tents Williston and Endeavor, and in Mechanics' hall, were attended by the same great hosts that were there in the evoning. Befora 9 o'clock a throng crowded the steps at the entrance to Mechanics' hall, singing Endeavor songs while they awaited admission. On the common the scene was duplicated outside the tents. Hundreds were unable to secure admittance to the hall, and later repaired to the tents. The sessions partook more of a business character than their predecessors, interesting reports of the information committees and reports from the denominational meetings taking up an hour of the meetings in the tents. Features of the session were the presentation of the state banner for the greatest proportionate increase in the number of local societies, made by Rev. Wayland Hoyt; D. D., of Minneapolis in Mechanics building; of the state banner for the greatest absolute gain in new assemblies, by Rev. W. E. Hamilton of Newton, Mass., in Tent Williston, and of the junior state banners for the greatest proportionate and actual gain in number of societies, by Rev. J. F. Cowan, D. D., of Pittsburg in Tent Endeavor. At . a meeting of the trustees San Francisco was selected as the meeting place of the convention in 1897. The report of Secretary Baer shows a gain of 7,750 societies for the year, the largest increase for any. consecutive 12 months during the 14 years of the body's existence. The total' number of societies is 41,229,- including 2,645 in the United Kingdom, Australia 1,509, Africa SO, China 32, France 64, India 117, Japan 59, Madagascar 98, Mexico 25, Turkey 89, West India Islands 08, and so on until every country is represented save five— Italy, Russia, Iceland, Sweden and Greece. The total membership is 2,473,949. WAS A DAY OF REST. "yc'.ono nay* Peculiar Caper* 1ft tho Vicinity of Grftfton, N. ». GRAFTON, N. D., July 15.—A tail- twisting cyclone struck the place of O. D. Nelson]! six miles northeast of here, at 4:45 p. m. It was about three rods wide. At a schoolhotise nearby people were at church and heard it coming. It first struck a large machinery shed, lifted it up, turned it completely around and dropped it five rods away in a grove. It was full of machinery, which was literally twisted out of shape. Turning, it took a windmill off a barn, and twisted the barn some. It theu struck the house five rods away. It lifted this house up in the air, whirled it around. Striking on a corner, it Went into Thousands of Pieces. There were five persons in the house. Mrs. Nelson was sitting on the porch with a baby in her arms. When in the air she dropped the baby, and was car* ried about 80 feet. Both were uninjured. A ia*year-old girl named Peters was badly hurt and is not expected to live. The hired man was carried 800 feet and dropped in a grove, where for a short time he remained unconscious. Everything in tho house was literally smashed to pieces. Three miles southeast a farmer named Kuudsou had the roof taken oft' his house and there is undoubtedly more damage done. RUSSIA AND JAPAN. THE OLD FRIENDS. Conciliatory Advances From Kussta Which lUny Result in an Alliance. SAN FRANCISCO, July 13.—The steam ship Gaelic has arrived with the following Japanese advices: Reports are current of conciliatory advances on the part of Russia toward Japan. There are strong reasons for believing the government of St. Petersburg has instructed its representative in Tokio to address himself to the task of allaying the irritation caused by the recent demonstration against the Japanese territorial scheme on Manchuria, and to discuss plans for restoring cordial relations between the two nations. Russia is said to be willing to explain in a friendly sense her objections to Japanese expansion on the continent, and to give assurances that she will not oppose the growth of the island empire in other directions, but will, on the contrary, regard such growth with satisfaction. Japan is requested to believe that the interests of her powerful neighbor would be materially served by the consolidation of Japanese strength in the Pacific, and that if guarantees can be given that no interference will be attempted in Russia's projects for the development of Siberia, an alliance may be formed on terms mutually beneficial. This proposal is receiving the attention of the Japanese foreign office. SHORTENED SENTENCES. Christian Endeavorers Get a Respite J?rora Their Labors.. BOSTON, July 15.—The programme of the Christian Endeavor Sunday included work only for the visiting clergymen. The local ministers in general gave place to those who had come from other localities to attend the convention and it is doubtful if ever in the history of Boston the pulpits were supplied with such an array of eminent preachers. To tbe more than 50,000 members of the Y. P, S, C. E, the day came as a literal "day of rest," The energetic young men and women, who, ever since the convention opened, have been given but little respite from their labors in oaring for the many visitors, appro- ciated the change, and tbe strangers, wearied by continued convention sessions, seemed glad to be able to attend service in tbe locality in wbipb their headquarters were, instead of having to undergo the crowding necessary to get to the tent meetings and the Me- Qhanics' ball sessions. This distribution of clergymen was so planned that tbe delegations quartered in the sub" attend worship m tbei* could districts, The old friends, tho old fricntla We loved when wo were young, With sunshine on their faces And rntisic on their tongues! Tho lieos aro in the nltnond llowcir, Tho birds renew their strain, But tho old friends, once lost to U9, Can never como again. Tho old friends, tho old friends 1 Their brow is lined with care; They've furrows in the faded check And silver in the hair, But to mo they are the old friends still. In youth nnd bloom tho same An when wo drove tho Hying ball Or shouted in the game. Tho old men, tho old men, How slow they creep along! How naughtily we scoffed i;t them In days when wo were young I Their prosing and their dozing, Their prato of times gone by, Their shiver Mice an aspen leaf If but n breath went by. But we, we are tho old men now, Our blood is faint and chill; Wo cannot leap the mighty brook Or climb the breakneck hill. We maunder down tho shortest cuta, Wo rest on stick or stile, And tho young men, half ashamed to laugh, Yet pass us with a smile. But tho young men, tho young men, Their strength is fair to see— The straight back and tho springy stride, Tho eye as falcon free, Tho shout above tho frolic wind As up tho hill they gc, But though so high above us now They soon shall bo as low. Oh, weary, weary drag tho years As life draws near tho end, And sadly, sadly fall tho tears For loss of love and friend. But we'll not doubt there's good about In all of human kind; So hero's a health before wo go To those wo leave behind. —Spectator. THE ICONOCLAST. Judge Woods Brakes Those of Dobs and Companions Hun Concurrently. CHICAGO, July 18.— Judge Woods has reinstated his former order making concurrent the sentences of Eugene V. Debs and other officials of the American Railway union. As a result Debs will serve but six months in jail and his associates but three months. Harvesting; in Nebraska. OMAHA, July 15. —Wheat harvest is in full blast throughout the state. The yield is fully up to the expectations. The corn crop is estimated at 188,000,000 bushels and its condition was never better. _ To Succeed Judge Orton. MADISON, Wis., July 12,— Governor Uphani has appointed Judge Webb of Grand Rapids, judge of the Seventh circuit, to fill a vacancy created by the death of the late Chief Justice Orton.

''' ?»j»i Young Mr. Broughton was, unawares and gradually, in process of evolution from the journalist to the newspaper man. It took all sorts of rubs and surprises and facers and disillusions to form him. That morning lie was hurrying through Printing House square on an assigument, when he noticed before him a woman carrying on her head a tray of plaster images and walking with the stately gait and even poise of the south Italian. She was small, brown. She .wore a gown of blue cotton, a woolen shawl, plaided in olive and yellow, and a red kerchief on her head. These glaring colors, however, made her a picture. To observe her Broughton passed by her and then looked back. She regarded him calmly. "Buy a lit' San Samuele says-a his* oration, signer V" Broughton had no particular use for a praying Samuel, but he had various theories about our adopted citizens and might have acquired something in the plaster cast line if at that moment a broad shouldered fellow had not come and jostled the little woman so roughly that the tray was thrown from her head and' went ruining , to the sidewalk. It was the end of the world for that population of graven images. They fell in a heap of indistinguishable fragments, mingling their dust in a complete democracy of saints, politicians, lambs, the three graces, and even a model of a beautiful foot' labeled Trilby. Little Samuel was past praying for, but he was no more thoroughly pulverized than the bust of Napoleon. Young Mr. Broughton felt stirring within him an essay on the frailty of mundane things. Then the air was torn with the lamentations of the woman. ' ' O Madonna I ' ' Next s he denounced the cause of the disaster, who was moving away. "Head of big, yon are-a! Why-a you hit-a me? What I ever done at you-a ? You break-a my image — I not eat-a more!" she rattled her finger nails along her front teeth to indicate the hunger which would be the consequence of the breaking of her stock in trade. Meanwhile two bootblacks had seized the man by the elbows, and turning him around ran him back face to face with the woman. She stood wringing her bauds and wailing. "What ruin! Poor-a me!" The aggressor was evidently also an Italian. "Soy!" one of the bootblacks said. "Youse has goiter reach down inter yer clothes an square up wid de dago loidy. ' ' "He's a bloomin dago hisself," commented the other boy, Broughton had been painfully composing a few phrases of such colloquial Italian as bis Harvard studies of Dante bad rendered possible to him, and now uttered them in a stiff and toneless accent, In effect, he said that it was necessary to pay the compatriot for that which was broken. "I only got a tencent-a, signer," said the offender, banding the coin to the woman. He was permitted to go in peace, (( Ten-aceut-a! Madonna mia! For so mooch image!" sobbed' f he. ' SoBrougbto»put$liutobisownbat and passed it around among tbe tbrong that bad been attracted by the noise, Wbeu be gave the collection to the woman, she wiped ber eyes, kissed bis bands witb many benedictions, and went ber •way. \ Brougbton's assignment 'bad taken bun in tbe direction o{ Mulberry bend, ,4s be returned through tbat qnajter be S&AY a hundred yards in front'of bin* a womw witb a tray of images, on Jje? bead. , He quickened bis pace lad soon fliably btoken and to rcplnco them o'ft the tray. This thuo Bronghton did 11010 stay to act as consoler. The nggressof had walked oft rapidly, and the reporter followed him. Aftpr five minutes' cha«e> they turned into an unspeakably dirty alley, where tJio Italian entered a doorway without noticing that any one pursued him. Bronghtou, having made sure- that he should recognize the house- again, hastened to tho nearest police- station and told tho story. "She was a quiet, decent little body, '* he said to the officer. '' That, great, hulking brute struck her on purpose tho second time, even admitting that the first time might havo been by accident." Two policemen were detailed to accompany Mr. Broughton, who was known to the chief of the station, and he led them straight to tho door whero the Italian had entered. Up the dark and broken stairs they climbed. Brough- toii shrunk from contact with tho slimy walls. It seemed to him that evil odors were depositing themselves there in a pestilential fungous growth. At last they emerged upon a landing. A child leaned over the baluster of the story above. Broughton tossed him a nickel. "My little man, is thero an Italian living in this house?" The child picked up tho coin and Eta: eel iu silence. "Say, kid, is dorc a dago bere?" ono of the policemen translated. The boy pointed with a thumb to a door at the left of tho lauding where the three 'men stood. Broughton felt tho thrill of the righteous avenger. Tho malicious brute who had twice destroyed tho wares of tho poor little image vender would BOOH be sent to the island. Aud a good riddance for tho community. Ono of the police opened the door, and they entered. They saw at one side of the room a long work bench, covered with plaster images. The iconoclast sat there, carefully mending a broken figure. Tho woman was leaning over his shoulder, laughing as they chatted in their own language. "Eh, I always say it, Pietro, you have a holy hand at mending them I If not, wo might lose by the game." "I don't say, Mariauua, that St. Samuel is better than new, but at least he- will stick until ho takes another tumble." So that was their trick 1 A piece of real Neapolitan cunning. Broughton decided that he ought to have seen through it sooner. The woman caught sight of the visitors, and ran forward with hands clasped: "We ain't doue-a uottin," she pleaded. "Die our beez-a-uess. We alla-right-a." "Yes, you're all right," said Broughton impulsively. "It was my mistake. I owe you a dollar for it." And he laid a silver dollar on the work bench of the maker, breaker and mender of images, The Italian looked up with a real Neapolitan smile, radiant, many toothed, wide and irresponsible. "Tell me about it," said the reporter. "You not give-a me 'way, gent'men cops?" ' "; ' s '""V <•-' ' ! »«*&tei "No. Goon." "Look, it like-a dis. We not sell image. Arid I say, youbear-a me, Marian-», na, we get more money to break all I She carry de image. Den I come-a with grand-a force-a. Patatrac \ All ruin-a I A-a-a-ar me! Dat, Marianna. A-ah, poor! Dat people! Somebody take-a, money in hat. Don't-a cry, poor vonian t After, I mend-a what-a can. After, I, Marianna, babies, all eat. See?" All this time the wife stood with four rather clean and very beautiful children clinging to her skirts, and peeping shyly at the strangers. How could Broughton or any one else blame this happy family? Indeed Broughton has never formulated his views upon the case, although' he used to take social problems very seriously. Whenever be meets Pietro in ' tbe street they exchange a glance of intelligence. Sometimes the Neapolitan, by a quick gesture, indicates Marianna farther along the avenue. And then Broughton, if be has time, assists at the —nth performance of tbe comedy of the iconoclast.—Elizabeth " Pullen in St. Louis Globe-Democrat. ^ she, bad replenished be? jaajnts a»d heroes, a&d graces,, wore. young de ^H world, no o»e'js The French Capture of Malta.
