McFarland, of Emmet county, was nominated for secretary of state on the second ballot, getting 563 votes, to372 for Byrkit and 23 for Church. The platform mitten then reported as follows: Resolved, That we, the republicans of Iowa in convention assembled, reaffirm our devotion to the principles of the national republican party and we make no other test, of fealty to the republican party of Iowa. We heartily endorse the able, prudent and' patriotic administration of President, Harrison, wit,ii special commendation of tho movement for closer and better relations, both business and political, among all American governments and people. We do specifically declare our adherence to tile prin-ciple of protection to American Industry applied wisely in view °f the interest of all conditions of our people and administration, In view of the equal interest (tf all our industries we regret that discrimination may be widely made but never in behalf of the strong against the weak never against the masses. In this spirit we hold all legislation should be had whether it concerns the raising of revenue or the disbursement of the same by the general government, by the state or by a sub-division of the local government; whether it concern the domestic, aggression or be in definition of the limitation upon foreign aggression. We are in favor of such expansion of currency as will meet the growing demands of the increase in population and trade and offset the contraction resulting from a continual withdrawal of the national bank circulation. To this end we favor such legislation as will utilize as money tin* entire silver product of our mines and wo favor such laws as will aid in the ultimate unrestricted use of both precious metals as money. The republican party of this state is in favor of promoting in every fair and honorable way the Industrial interests of the people of this state. We believe the business Interests of tho people are interchangeable and mutual. Particularly do we believe that the great industry represented by the farm stands of the head of Iowa Industries and that the faithful guardianship of that, interest is tHo prime obligation upon t hose who make and administer our laws. We congratulate the people of this state irrespective of party relationship, upon the measure of success attained in the contest iii this state in behalf of just and legal control of the railway corporations doing business in this state, and we appeal to the people to see to it that there be no recession in the just policy of the state in this regard. YY’e believe the efforts to nullify the interstate commerce law should be resisted to the end that national protection and state protection may alike he equal to all communities and among all classes. I he republicans of Iowa offer their sympathy to the producers of the south who seek now for disenthrallment from the industrial bondage of the grinding monopolies of tile states of that section protected and promoted by all the power of the organized democratic party of those state's. YY e believe that, in breaking up of these systems under which industrial freedom is impossible and which rob and persecute the poor, lies one great hopi' of the freedom of elections and popular government, social peace aud general prosperity in the southern states. Recognizing tho revolt in the south in behalf of liberty and justice, a popular government, and popular rights, it is a matter of minor concern in what name the battles are fought and won. YY’o welcome tin' first growth and spread of power of the republican principles. YY’e cordially approve the purpose of the republicans in congress to so amend and improve tin' pension laws as to make further aud generous provision for union soldiers, their widows, parents ami children, and we already believe that day is not far distant when a general service pension law should be and will be passed. YVe express our abhorrence of all trusts and trade conspiracies of every kind intended to destroy competition and create and    perpetuate monopolies, and call for the enactment and agreement    of I >o th federal and state laws    to completely exterminate such iniquitous aud dangerous combinations* and to prevent their further organization. YY’e declare against a compromise with the saloon ami stand by the tho people of tins state in their hostility to its existence, spread and power. YY’e favor such legislation on tho part of congress as shall protect, the police power of the states in their efforts to regulate, confine or prohibit tile public bar. And for the approval of the work and record of the republican party of this state in this great cause of tomporiuc'e, involving tile public peace and safety of good government, we appeal confidently to tho electors of Iowa. YVe congratulate the people of Iowa upon the promise of the year; upon the measure of success that has attended the past «iiid upon tho confidence mid coinmate with which the state awaits the future. The platform was adopted. J. A. Lyons was nominated for auditor, receiving 513 votes, to 340 for McCarthy, and 107 for Kyle. Generals. A. Hobson, of Marshalltown, was then nominated for treasurer by acclamation. Judge T. IL Rothrock was nominated for the supreme bench over N. M. Pusey, of Pottawattamie. Hon. John \. Stone was renominated for attorney general by acclamation. G. B. Pray was renominated for clerk of the supreme court on the second ballot. N. B. Raymond, of Polk, was nominated for reporter to the supreme court. J. W. Luck, of Franklin county, was nominated for railroad commissioner after a stiff fight and over a heavy opposition. an indication that all those who defered to local question of advantages or disadvantages of prohibition are therefore ruled out of the party. Many who last year voted with the democrats signify their intention of returning to the fold and working with the party. The temperance plank is considered one which will please all, excepting perhaps, the extreme radicals in either direction Ihe anti-prohibitionists throughout the State telegraph that the platform is broader and more liberal than they had reason to expect and are greatly pleased, i Id* arland will receive the entire support of Polk county republicans. Lyons has many friends which are rejoicing at his success The success of Raymond makes Des Moines republicans happy. ILLINOIS REPUBLICANS.

Mr. Conger then moved that the debate on the silver bill be extended to three o’clock, at which time voting shall begin. His motion was agreed to, and Morsel of Massachusetts, took the floor in support of the house bill and in opposition to the senate bill. The debate was continued at great length by Taylor, of Illinois, Peters, of Kansas, Cuteheon. of Michigan, Dunnell of Minnesota, Bayne, of Penn?«ylvania, YY illiams. of Illinois, and others. Mr. YY’illiams charged that the president sent men here threatening a veto of the free coinage bill passed.

Mr. McKinley in closing the debate said he wanted the use of both metals to continue and opposed the senate amendments. He wanted metals to stand side by side equal in their purchasing power and legal tender quality. The gentleman who favored the senate amendments wanted silver to do all of the work. YY iiatever we had for money in this country must be equal in purchasing power and legal tender quality, whether gold, silver or paper dollars, each redeemable in the other and each ‘exchangeable for the other and each of equal value.

Mr. Springer then withdrew his request for a separate vote on each section and the house then by a rising vote of 146 to 85 non-concurred in all the remaining senate amenduents. The house then voted that a conference be asked with the senate on the bill. Mr. Hitt, of Illinois, presented the conference report on the diplomatic appropriation bill, and it w*as agreed to. Mr. Cannon, from the committee on rules, reported back the substitute for the resolution introduced by Lodge, of Massachusetts, setting apart five days of the present week for the consideration of the national election bill. The substitute presides that immediately after the passage of the silver bill the house proceed to consider the electra* bill until July 2 at two o clock, when the previous question will be considered ordered; this not to interfere with general appropriation bills. Mr. Springer moved to adjourn and Enloe shouted: “This is a bill to revolutionize the government.” Finally it was agreed to allow* forty minutes debate on the resolution with the understanding that the previous question should be considered ordered, and Springer withdrew his motion to adjourn. Messrs. McMillin and Blunt vigorously attacked the bill and from this time on there was great confusion on the floor. Messrs. Cannon and O’Neill, of in (Ii*- v, engaged in a colloquy somewhat P'-T.ranal and this added so much to the already existing disorder that the sergeant-at-arms came forward with his mace of office and restored order. Mr. Springer moved to table the resolution. On the yea and nay vote this was lost yeas IIG, nays 133. Coleman^ of Louisiana, being the only republican w*ho voted with the democrats. The resolution was then adopted^ After arranging to meet at eleven o’clock for the six days during which the debate is to continue, the house adjourned. nuking It “Change the record *• The resolution went over without action and the senate proceeded with the Wyoming admission bill, the report of the committee on territorial admission. Mr. Vest opposed the bill. He knew. in. the past, a state had been admitted with small population of some sectional party exigencies. But none such existed now. Wyoming, he said, has a population of not over sixty thousand, scattered over the immense area of ninetv-seven thousand square miles. Vest would not vote for the admission of YY’v-oming and its preseut constitution permitting woman suffrage. Woman suffrage was antagonistic to the spirit and institutions of the American people He deplored the extension of suffrage to the colored men in the south and said no intelligent man to-day would give it them. He himself would no more give them the right of suffrage than he would give a deadly weapon to a child. Certainly he would not give it to colored women, who were far more impulsive and thoughtless than men. Another objection Vest made to the constitution of YY yoni mg was that it gave the right of holding property to aliens. ,Mr. Piatt said YVyoming had as good a right to admission as any territory ever admitted. He was surprised that the gentleman so devoted to ’"home rule” should not be willing to allow a territory to decide women’s suffrage for itself. He believed the population of Wyoming was nearer 125,000 than 100.000. In conclu- Sl°    spoke the great resources of3YY yoming and said with irrigation it could support ten million people. At the close of Platt's remarks he made an effort to have a vote taken on the bill, but Vest objected and moved an amendment and the senate adjourned. (PRICE: 15 CENTS PER WEEK MR. GOSHEN MUST GO.

A Heated Conference Held Between Strikers and Officials. Chicago, June 25.—Telegraphic advices from points in this state, Wisconsin and Iowa indicate that the tie-up on the Illinois Central is not as complete outside of (liicago as w*as generally supposed. While most of the branch lines seem to be at a standstill, advices are to the effect that the main system, which traverses the state from Dunleitli to Cairo is still in operation, and that lines in YY’is-consin and Iowa have not so far been effected. The fact is that the chief officer of the L nited Railway employes who alone has authority to order a strike, has taken no action in the matter. Yesterday’s action of the strikers declaring a tie-up on all the lines under the management of Division Superintendent Russell was taken without authority in the hope that the chief of the order would approve it as an accomplished fact. A conference was held between the strikers and officials of the road to-day, but, as far as known, practically nothing resulted, except a heated wrangle. The divisions of the road now reported completely tied up are those from Chicago to Centralia. Illinois; Chicago to Freeport, Illinois; and Chicago to Dubuque Iowa. As a result of the tie-up express companies of this city are refusing matter for points on the Illinois Central. About $200,000 wort’n of perishable freight is sidetracked at Kankakee, illinois, sixty miles from here. Live stock enroute for this city from points on the Illinois Central is being brought in by round about routes over connecting lines It is estimated that between 1,500 and 1,600 men are idle. There is danger unless tile strike is soon settled that it will spread to other roads. The “Big Four” road which has trackage arrangement with the Illinois Central, finding itself unable to get freight into the city made arrangement with the Chicago and Eastern Illinois. The strikers suspecting the Illinois Central w*as also using the Eastern Illinois, sent word to the employes that the line should not handle Illinois Contral freight. The request was complied with with a vengeance. The eastern Illinois men refusing to handled any more “Big Four” cars. Much perishable freight is now side tracked on the Illinois Central tracks. MANGLED AT A WEDDING. THE SENATE. The Wyoming Admission Bill Under Discussion. that-Ism the ■Hp Fononi’s. YY asgton, June 25.—In the senate a bill to prevent transportation in bond of merchandise between the United States and Mexico and to restore that right where\er Zona Libra is abolished was reported adversely. Mr. Call rose to address the senate on the subject of resolutions offered by him (and reported back adversely from the committee on foreign relations) one authorizing the pre:idem to open nego-tiatiation with the Spanish government for the purpose of inducing that government to consent to the establishment of a    free    and independent repub lic in the island of Cuba, and the    other    in    relation to Ger man ownership of a large proportion of the bonded debt of Cuba. YY’hen the clerk was reading the second resolution. Sherman rose and moved the doors be closed. Mr. Edmunds seconded the motion and the vice president directed the galleries to be cleared and the doors were closed. Mr. Call being thus unexpectedly shut off in his desire to make a speech before the public, said that he would withdraw his resolutions, but the order to close the doors was insisted upon by Messrs. Sherman and Edmunds, and was carried into execution. Th6 doors reopened at 1:30 and the senate took up the house bill for the admission of Wyoming into the union as a state. The bill was temporarily laid aside and Ingalls offered a resolution instructing the committee on privileges and elections to inquire into the publication of the Record to-day of the personal explanation by Call and report whether it is in accordance with the rules, etc This led to a sharp spat in the course of which he charged Call with having “deliberatly falsified the record.” He w&& called to order and modified this The Best Man Bitten by a Mad Dog and is Now in New York for Treatment. New York, June 25.—Dr. Paul Gibier's latest patient is a man from Augusta, Georgia, who has but one chance in twenty to live. The patient’s name is James YY’atlace Tomlinson. He arrived at the Pasteur institute here last night. Tomlinson is twenty-four years of age, is . unmarried, and is a typical southerner. On the evening of the loth inst., he was to have been the best man at the marriage of a Miss Helen Caldwell to a cousin of the groomsman named Robert I. Stone. The guests were at the house, the minister was ready to pronounce the compact sealed, when the pet dog of the family began to snarl and snap at every thing in sight. “YYilt thou take this woman ” That was as far as the minister got, when the dog sprung for the bride. Tomlinson grabbed the beast and saved the bride, but was frightfully bitten himself. The (atiine tore his throat in a horrible manner. almost severing the jugular vein. Then he started for the groom, but Tomlinson fell on the brute and killed him before he could do further damage. The marriage was indefinitely postponed. London. June 25.—The decision of Speaker Peel on the point raised by Timothy Healy in the house of commons \esterday has made dissolution the question of the hour. It does not leave the ministry a leg to stand on and the licensing bill has to be sacrificed in its entirety. Goshen cannot remain in the cabinet after such an authoritative pronouncement of the unconstitutionality of a government measure for which he i. personally responsible, unless he and his colleagues are willing to run the daily risk of an adverse vote. The general opinion among members of the house is that he will endeavor to stick and draar the ministry down with him. but the prac tidally unanimous voice of tile tory party demands his retirement. Not a* single tory is in favor of dissolution. Every man of them is in favor of holding on to power and reorganizing the ministry By forcing Goschen out and taking in Hartington or Sir Henry James and recasting the ministerial policy the tories think the party could be rendered harmonious again and the ministry would b* enabled to select its own time and a better issue for an appeal to the country. The ministers held a hurried consultation yesterday and another to-day, but it is understood that nothing was decided on except the dropping of the licensing clauses. The final decisions as to dissolution or reorganization of the ministry will not be reached at a formal meeting. Lord Salisbury and one or two of his most trusted colleagues will first have an informal consultation with Lord Hart ington and Sir Henry James, and, perhaps, Joseph Chamberlain, and after they have agreed on a plan the formal cabinet meeting will register tilt decision arrived at. YY’hatever the tory leaders do must be done quickly, and every hour makes it more probable that they will be forced to take Lord Randolph Churchill into their confidence Meanwhile the government is losing ground from hour to hour in the country and its indecision is fast making friends for the opposition, which has resolutely pursued a definite policy and presented an unbroken fr at. Caine’s address to the electors of Bar-rowin-Furness, issued the very day of his resignation, fell like a bombshell among the tory benches. It announces his secession from the unionist party, condemns the government policy all along the line and expresses satisfaction with the present attitude of the Glad-sIonian liberals on the question of bonn rule. He boldly challenges a decision by his constituency on Hies* points. The general belief among northern members is that Caine will be reelected by the help of the Gladstonians in spite of all the aid the tories and the unionists will give ii is opponent. Then is a strong suspicion, arising from Caine’s well-known intimacy with Joseph Chamberlain, that the result of the election will decide the lattJ-'s future course. If C aine is re-elected ho one in parliament would be surprised to see Chamberlain step back to the liberal fold after first making his terms. There is feverish anxiety here and no one can tell what may happen next. The large circle in Berlin interested in African affairs is greatly excited over the discovery by tin1 American Egyptologist, YY’ilbour, of the record of the existence in ancient time of canals around the Nile cataracts. This discovery of the authenticity of the datta of which there is no doubt, suggests the possibility of the reopening of the Soudan* by Hic British by the restoration of the canals, whereby the possessions of Germany in southern Africa would become practically valueless as compared with their present promise of revenue. YVith an uninterruptedly navigable Nile and an undisputed protectorate over Zanzibar England would be enabled to control the trade of the most fruitful portions of Africa with marketing facilities which would throw the German companies hopelessly out of competition.

Y., June 25.—William Kemmier was not informed that the court of appeals had affirmed the judgment of the lower court in his case until he had eaten his evening meal yesterday. which was handed into his cage about 5 o clock by old Daniel, his keeper. After he had eaten his last morsal of the liberally provided meal he turned to Daniel and said: “Well, old man, you seem to take it harder than I do. See”—raising himself to his full height and expanding his chest —••‘I am not nervous or downcast, and I know by your solemn way how my case has ended and learned my fate from your actions. But it will be all right, Daniel. Don’t feel: bad. I knew all along we would have to part. and I was ready to hear what your good old heart dreaded to reveal to me.” The prisoner is much attached to his keeper for one with such a bnukTnaturel He pretended to be more concerned about Daniel than about himself, birt when In his narrative of the “Count of Monte I risto Alexander Dumas endeavors to establish the proposition that those who have suffered most are capable of enjoying most. If that be true. Count Langowski, an employe at Hudson s clothing store, has an enormous capacity for appreciating the good things of life, though even his present straitened circumstances do not permit an excessive indulgence in them. Count Langowski, as he would be entitled to be called in Poland, though preferring plain Frank Langowski, resides at 505 Fremont street with his wife and two children. He is very short of stature, very thick set, verv white-haired, though only 54 years old, and very cheerful in disposition, notwithstanding his sufferings entitle him to be known as a man of many sorrows. He speaks eight languages, in one of which he detailed the thrilling story of his life—how for fourteen years he was a Russian political prisoner in the wilds of Siberia,hated, despised, beaten with stripes, starved and frozen. captured in war. It was in 1863 that the Poles rebelled against Russia, said he, in very fair English. I was then 27 years old, single, and lived with my father. Count Langowski, on a large farm near Warsaw. My father's estate was large and he was one of t ho leading noblemen of the state. The reffiel general, Taczanowski, billeted 500 of his troops upon us, and although our family had in no wise participated in tile revolt, to refuse levy meant expatriation. Therefore my father acquiesced. Against these 500 troops Russia sent 3,700 men and sixty cannon. The battle was short and decisive, resulting in the killing and capturing of the whole 500. Six horses from our stables that had been pressed into service were killed and two of our men who were driving. The third man was whipped nearly to death after the capture amkthen bayoneted. I was taken prisoner, and soon setout with hundreds of others on our way to Siberia. Think of a journey of over 3,000 miles on foot, requiring thirteen months, with heavy chains on each ankle aud chained by the wrist to another in a gang of IOO! That is tho way we made the trip, most of the time the weather being bitterly cold, with the meanest kind of clothing, and only allowed seven copecks, less than five cents, a day for food. At night we slept in etapes—long, low, log or stone sheds —erected every ten miles along the way, more often without lire than vrith it, always hungry, always cold, and always in pain from the galling chains. At last, after thirteen months of misery, we arrived at the end of our journey to encounter worse misery still, /twas set to work in the quicksilver mines. Three months is as long as any human being can stand it to work in those mines. Many die in the mines and m$ny soon after leaving them. I he fumes of tho mercury rot the bones, loosen the teeth and leave the man a tote I wreck. When I had partly regained my health after this experience I with others was set to digging holes in the ground. I he holes were not designed for any use w hatever, but wen' dug just to keep us at work, and it was while thus engaged that I received my first whipping. I w as to© weak to smooth the side of the Ii ole as nicely as the officer wanted it, and simply told him so. FEARFUL FLOGGINGS. For that I was taken to the'whipping bench, laid on my face and fastened down by three thongs, one of which was passed over the neck, one over the body undone over the legs, so arranged that a man cannot make the least movement. I received eighty blows with the knout, and was two months and a half in the hospital before I could leave my bed. These knouts are of stout leather, the points of the lashes being loaded with lead, and a blow from them in the hands of a strong man is as bad as a stroke from a policeman’* club. I have seen men killed at the third stroke. After rat first whipping I received another of 125 lashes for calling a soldier a dog who had bayoneted a -prisoner in cold blood. I was nearly killed, and it was almost a year before I could resume work. The scenes of brutality to lie witnessed on all sides were simply frightful. I he killing of prisoners by the soldiers was terrible. They were under no restraint whatever, and the poor prisoners were killed for uttering the slightest word in protest against the most horrible murders. Out of the 95,000 prisoners seat to Siberia by the Russian government at the end of the rel>ellion I don t believe 5,000 ever got back alive. And not one of th**m guilty of a crime, but simply prisoners of war. But if the fate of the men was hard, that of the Yeoman was infinitely more so. They were whipped with stout gads instead of tho knout—that is the only difference I was ever able to observe. They were whipped and poisoned to death in the hospitals by hundreds, and every public indecency heaped upon them. Even their efforts at suicide were laughed at as a joke. I was six years a prisoner in chains, and six years a prisoner under surveillance. At the end of six years I was obliged to support myself, but was required to report daily to a certain officer. I supported myself by making cigarettes, and then after thirteen years was given a passport back to Poland. A man cannot travel half a mile in Russia' without a passport. I begged my way from town to town, and when about half way back received some money from my sister. On reaching home I found an order from the czar requiring me to quit Poland within twenty-four hours on pain of death. I had just time to marry the girl I was betrothed to and hurried away to Cracow, thence to Antwerp, where a Polish friend assisted me to America. I have been here ten years, and although I arn very poor nothing on earth would induce me to leave American soil.— Detroit Free Press.
