As to wool. he would give to the American farm-ei* lite fullest protection on tho kinds of wool that he raised, but if it was found the American farmers could not or would not produce the coarse wools of the Argentine Republic, he would retain the duty on coarse wool ft oui South America as a basis of negotiation for reciprocity, that would create a market in that country for tin* products of the farms and the factories of the United States. He would adopt the same policy as to hides, rubber, cocoa, cabinet woods, and many other articles. Ile would also adopt retaliatory measures against France, Germany and England for their exclusion of American products. That would be true to the American farmer. Mr. McPhe rson’s substitute for the wood schedule and some amendments offered by Plumb to some of its paragraphs went over without action, leaving the whole schedule still open. The sugar schedule was also passed over informally and the tobacco schedule (F) was taken up. After a couple of amendments had been offered and rejected, schedule G, (agricultural products and provisions) was reached. Paragraph 23.A in that schedule was, on motion of Aldrich, made to read “slice]), one year old or more, SI.50 per head: less than one year old, 75 cents per head." The paragraph relating to barley having been reached Aldrich withdrew the amendment of the finance committee to reduce the duty from JO to 25 cents per bushel, leaving it at the rate of 30 cents. The duty on barley malt was left a 45 cents. The rice paragraph was reached and then the senate went into executive -('--ion and soon adjourned. EXPEDITING THE TARIFF EILL. THE POLITICAL CALDRON. Ohio State Democratic Convention at Springfield. Wisconsin Democrats at Milluaukec— Conventions in Washington and Idaho—South Dakota Republicans—Political News. Sim: I NG field, O., Aug. 27.—At tho democratic state convention to-day Thaddeus E. Cromlcy, of Pickaway county, was nominated for secretary of state, and George B. Okoy for judge of the supreme court. The report of the committee on resolutions was presented and agreed to. The platform demands a reduction of the tariff; favors laws for the suppression of trusts and other combinations of the kind; hails with satisfaction the awakening among the farmers to the evils of republican legislation under which they are suffering, and invite them to join with the democrats to promote legislation which will better their condition; favors free coinage of silver at its present ratio with gold, and denounces among other things the republican party for its duplicity to the soldiers of the late war in not fulfilling its pledges made to them; the federal election bill, the despotic codo of rules of tin* present house of representatives, and the arbitrary proceedings of its presiding officer. The resolutions close with high praise of the prudent, patriotic and economical administration of state affairs under Governor Campbell and the democratic legislature. For member of the boardof public works Leopold Kiefer was nominated. lion. Calvin S. Brice was called to the stand and made a few remarks, and at 1:30 the convention adjourned. THE TWENTY-FOURTH ILLINOIS. ernor, all denounced the law as unnecessary. While delelarlng they were in favor of teaching English in all schools, they said they were opposed to compulsion. The nominating speeches were not Finished until six o'clock, when the First ballot was taken and it resulted as follows: Geo. W. Peck, 115; Gabriel Bouck, 57: John Winans, 48; John W. Knight, 50, and William F. Bailey, 13. The convention met again at 8 o’clock, when the second ballot was taken. Peek’s vote fell off to 13'.), and Bouck's increased to 02. Peek's great strength is due to his large majority as mayor of Milwaukee, when he was elected last spring and when the Lutherans deserted the republican party on account of the Bennett law. Peek was nominated on the seventh ballot. Colonel Jones, of Racine, was nominated for lieutenant governor, and the convention adjourned until to-morrow. GENERAL POLITICAL MATTERS. Convention of Democratic Clubs. Tacoma, Wash., Aug. 27.—The convention of democratic clubs assembled here yesterday afternoon for the proper consolidation of the democracy of the state in an association of clubs. Letters of regret were read from ex-President Cleveland, Governor Hill, of New York, John M. Palmer, of Illinois, and others. demo-of the Plan for Saving Time When It Goes Into Conference—Aldrich's Mot ion Adopted. Washington, Aug. 27.—An arrangement is being talked of now to expedite consideration of the tariff bill after it goes back to the house. It is suggested that the senate ask a conference upon its amendment without waiting for a reference to, and report from, the committee on ways and means. This plan has been pursued in the past, and inquiry of the house members shows that such a request svouid doubtless be acceded to, at best a member of the committee on tfays and means believes at least ten days will be required to get the bill out of conference. Five, and probably seven, members will be appointed from each branch of congress to settle upon the form of the bill as it shall be finally passed. These will be selected from Senators Sherman, Allison, Aldrich, Hiseock, Harris, McPherson, Voorhees, and Carlisle and Representatives McKinley, Burrows, Bayne, Dinglcy, Gear, Mills, McMillan, and Flower._ LOYAL TO HIS PARTY. w i' to keep a quorum nails 8] N iijii.:. ;!„ (j idwisjr,!) th.'

Washington, Aug. 27.—There is something unusually pathetic in thedeath of Congressman Watson, of Pennsylvania. Lewis Watson died for ids party’s sake. He lies dead to-day because he felt his party's call to be supreme. When the first contested election case was up iii the house, before the adoption of the rules which created a “visible quorum," every republican was summoned to his seat to make a quorum. Mr. Watson was sick in bed. His physician, Dr. Magruder, forbade him to leave his room, but when a second dis-pateh came Mr. Watson, despite the warning of the physician and that of his wife, arose and came on to Washington. Ile voted and went home to bed. When the federal election bill was to be voted on he was again telegraphed for. His doctor wired back that it wa* out of the question. Iii* friend* in the house sought to procure a pair, but the democrats refused to arrange a pair. They knew how ill he was. It was the general belief that he might die at any moment, and the democrats, as they told his friends, “would not pair a dead vote with a living one.” Mr. Watson learned the night before the voting day that no pair could be arranged, and knowing how much his party needed every vote, hi* loyalty was greater to him than life. Ile came on to Washington and was almost carried into the house. More dead than alive, lie was taken back nome. and for weeks his life hung by a thread. The second trip to Washington had completely exhausted him; careful attendance and tender nursing saved his life, and he recovered sufficiently to be taken to the seashore. His doctor told him this time that any further attempt to attend to his work meant death, but when last week the general dispatch went out to all republicans calling them back for the agricultural bills, Mr. Watson defied death and came back. Saturday ho was in his scat all day, and^ yesterday he was on his way to the house when death struck him down. Democratic Senatorial Convention at Dallas* City, To-Day. [Special to the Hawk-Eye.] Dallas City, Aug. 27.—Tho democratic senatorial convention of the twenty-fourth district composed of Hancock, Henderson and Mercer counties will convene in this city to-morrow, for the nomination of two representatives to the state general assembly. The indications are that candidates will ta* presented from all these counties, and that a lively contest will occur on tho assemblage of the delegates this morning. It is believed to-night that tho Hon. Freeman Plant/, of Warsaw, Hancock county, will be one of the nominees. It probable that the other candidate will be selected from either Mercer or Henderson county, although the Honorables Wesley C. Williams and John 1). Stevens, of Hancock, have a strong following and one or tho other may bo placed upon thogicket with i Mr. Plant/.. The convention will be composed of thirty-four votes: of this j number twenty are from Hancock conn- j tv, thus Hancock county hold* the key to the situation, and by united action on the part of her delegates tho convention. The twenty-fourth senatorial district has in the past elected two republicans so often that the district is regarded as republican. But tho democratic party in these three counties seem to believe that it is possible to elect two members of the legislature from this district. With this belief in view it is expected that the convention will nominate the strongest men in tin* party. Anderson, of Henderson, the present representative in this district, and Guthrie, of Mercer. are the nominees of the republican party and are both strong men and the race In this senatorial district promises to be interesting and will be carefully watched not only by the politicians of Illinois, but by those of her sister state, Iowa. Democrat* of the Tenth. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Webster City, Aug. 27.—Tin erat ie congressional convention Tenth district met here to-day and nominated Hon. J. J. Russell a* candidate for congress against Dolliver. Russell is an independent republican who is at outs with his party upon the prohibition question. National Greenback Convention.

[Special to The Hawk-Eye.] De* Moines, Aug. 27.—A telegram received from Decorah, Iowa, to-night says inten*e excitement is caused by mysterious lights in an unoccupied house in that city. The house was formally occupied by Samuel Johnson, who, with a mistress and child made it their home, and Hie neighbors wejtc accustomed to hear the cries of the child, but in March last quietness came and in that month Johnson disappeared. At the .time much comment was caused and the matter was brought to the attention of Sheriff Nogard. A search of the premises unearthed the remains of the woman and child buried in the cellar. The lights in the house, which have appeared nightly since the finding of the woman’s body. are described by some as being similar to that of a candle arid by other* as phosphorescent. They disappear when visitors approach, and parties have been organized to solve the enigma by vigilant watch.

Josiah AVheeler, of Kansas, presented the first paper of the morning. His subject was “Legislation for Farmers.” President Kalb then introduced Hon: Edward Rosewater, editor of the Omaha Her, who spoke on the silver question, taking the position that the law recently passed by congress is ample for the demands for stimulating silver production and increasing the volume of money. He opposed the unlimited coinage at the expense of tin* government in the in-torc't of the bullion owners. At the afternoon session, lion. AA’. G.

Milwaukee, Aug. 27.—The democratic *tato convention was called to order shortly after noon to-day by Chairman Wall, of the state central committee. J. M. Morrow, of Sparia. was made temporary chairman. Mr. Morrow in his speech referred to Grover Cleveland, whereupon the delegates went wild with enthusiasm. Long and loud applause followed every mention against the Bennett law. A motion was adopted referring all resolutions to the committee without reading and the eonven-tion at 12:55 adjourned till three o’clock. Ex-Secretary of the Interior Vilas wa* made chairman of the committee of resolution*. The platform adopted is a* follows: Extravagance everywhere marks the republican rule. The present national administration has already exhausted the large surplus received from its democratic predecessor and now. with constantly growing revenues, the treasury is threatened with a deficit. The whole country is burdened by oppressive war taxes, enhancing the cost of the necessaries of life. The people, and especially the agricultural and laboring classes ask relief from these unjust burdens imposed in the increase of monopolies. The republican party answers this request by legislation increasing the tariff. The democratic party insists that the present tariff' should be reduced and taxation lowered to meet the just requirements of neces-fary public expenses. In state, as in national affairs, the republican party exhibits extravagance, corruption and unjustifiable interference with individual and constitutional rights. Great increase in state expenses and the creation of an army of needless officer*. paid out of the state treasury, to perform republican party service, show the same disposition to impose on the people aud squander their money for party gain prevails in Madison a* in Washington. We pledge that the democratic party, if intrusted with state government, will reduce state expenses to a point necessary for an economical administration of state affair*: and it will cover into the treasury all the interest on state funds and vigorously prosecute legal proceedings to recover th*4 interest on the moneys heretofore taken by th** state treasurers. We oppose any diversion of the public school funds to sectarian us**'. Tin* democratic party created tin* public school system of this state and will always jealously guard and maintain it. The Bennett law is a local manifestation of the settled republican policy of paternalism. Favoring th** laws providing for the compulsory attendance at school of    all    children, we believe the school law in force prior to the passage of the Bennett law guaranteed to all children of the state an opportunity for education and in this essential feature    was stronger than the Bennett law. The underlying principle of the Bennett law is the needless interference with the parental rights and liberty of conseence. The provisions for its enforcement place the accused at the mercy of tho school director* and deny his right to a trial by a jury, according to tho law of the land. To mask this tyrannical invasion of individual and constitutional rights the shallow plea in defense of the English language    is    advanced.
