Boston Daily Globe (Newspaper) - July 25, 1884, Boston, Massachusetts TIT!A -P TEC Telephone Talk IW TUI SUNDAY GLOBE MR. BLAINE WILL BB AT The Telephone IN THE NEXT SUNDAY GLOBE. VOL. XXVI—NO. 25. BOSTON. FRIDAY MORNING. JULY 25. 1884—WITH SUPPLEMENT. PRICE TWO CENTS. The Nominees of the Prohibitionists. Both Candidates Voted for 1 Unanimously. Blaine and Logan Vigorously Denounced. Greenbacks!!) the Day's Chief Bone of Contention. A Plank Favoring It Adopted and Then Thrown Out. [Special Despatch to The Bolton Globe.i Pittsburg, Fetm., Convention Hall, July 24.— The day opened hot, the thermometer ranging from 98° to IOO3. Promptly at 9.10 o’clock the chairman rapped for order, and the day’s proceedings were opened with prayer by Rev. Dr. Lee of New York. The prayer was followed by the singing of “Jesus, I my cross have takeu.’’ Massachusetts presented the name of M. H. Richards to be a member of the National Committee. Kentucky presented the names of C. M. Cole and O. J. madden, as members of the same oom-utttee. A Maryland delegate offered a resolution, which was not acted upon, reiterating that It was the sentiment of the convention that Commissioner of Indian Affairs Price and Commissioner of Pensions Dudley violated the civil service rules by visiting Pittsburg with the view of influencing the action of the Prohibition convention. In a few remarks ou this subject a Western delegate said that the government official mentioned in the resolution found the Prohibition party could neither be bought off nor persuaued to go borne. (Long-continued applause.) At 10.10 o’clock a motion was agreed to that the roll of States should be called, for the purpose of placing la nomination tile various presidential candidates. Owing to the absence of Colonel Babcock of California,who was to place Dr. McDonald of California, iii nomination, the call of States was postponed ana John D. Finch of Nebraska addressed the convention on the subject of prohibition. At the close of Mr. Fiuch’s remarks the call of States was begnn for the nomination of presidential candidates. In response to the call of “California.” Colonel Babcock, in a vigorous speech, declared that Dr. McDonald was one of tile greatest leaders Hie Prohibitionists bad ever possessed. He was a man hated and feared by tile whiskey interests of California, anet no better evidence of this could be found than in the violent manner in which he had been assailed by those Interests. The speaker reviewed the ^ temperance cause, and concluded by asking, in the name of Hie people of California, that Dr. McDonald should receive at the bands or the convention that recognition to which his work and liberality to the cause justly entitle nim. The call of Slates was then resumed. When Illinois was reached, Hon. George C. Christian of Chicago took the stand for the purpose of “nominating a candidate who needed uo defence, and who would not have to conduct a defensive canvass.” Ilia name which lie was to present was above all other names under the American flag; it was that of a man known in every household in the land—whose record is as bright as the noonday sun; a man who had seen war, who had lived on the bloody plains of Hie West, who bad gone through conflict, who was the very high priest of prohibition, who could carry with him a force of followers not gossessed by auy man named, or to be named, uch a man was that distinguished patriot, that magnificent leader, that whole-souled patriot, John P. St. John of Kansas. (Prolonged applause.) When Kansas was called, Miss Frances Willard supported the nomination of Ex-Governor St. John In an eloquent speech bristling with points, wblcb awoke all the enthusiasm of tbe audience. She pictured the early life and career of the exgovernor of Kansas, and characterized him as a man of the masses, and one whose name would never be effaced from Hie roll of Hie country. Kentucky, on being called, supported McDonald »s the most available candidate. Colonel Eustis was introduced when Maine was called, and, in a brief address, in which he protested against the tendency to slight the war horses of Hie party, be placed in nomination Hon. Gideou T. Stewart of duo. Charles M. Nye of Maryland responded to tne call of that State, and seconded the nomination of Dr. McDonald. When Massachusetts was reached, Rev. Dr. Miner of Boston seconded Hie nomination of John P. St. John in a powerful speech. When Dr. Miner concluded a delegate rose in the Massachusetts benches and was understood to say that several members of that delegation differed from tile position taken tty Dr. Miner. The chair, however, ruled the delegate out of order, and he resumed his seat. Mr. M. J. Fanning of Michigan seconded the nomination of ex-Governor St. John. W. W. Saterlee of Minnesota seconded the nomination of John P. St. John, aud promised a liberal contribution to a campaign literature fund. Missouri, through Mrs. Clara Hoffman, president of the State W. C. T. U., gave Its adhesion to ex-Governor St. Johu. When New Jersey was called the audience gave a hearty cheer. Stephen P. Ransom of that State was introduced, ami, alter stating that the candidate whose name lie would mention had given fiositive instructions against its presentation, auDched into a eulogy of General Clinton B. Fiske, whose name was greeted with prolonged cheers. Toward Hie close of his address, however, Mr. Ransom announced that the New Jersey delegates had reconsidered their first choice, and would solidly support St. John. Professor Hopkins of New York, John P. Finch of Nebraska and Gideon T. Stewart of Ohio seconded tbe nomination of St. John, and J. Newton Fierce of Pennsylvania nominated Judge James Black. At tins point there was a rush for St. John, aud all of the older candidates withdrew in his favor. The motion was about to be carried ’for a suspension of tbe rules in order to nominate ex-Governor St. John by acclamation, but the motion was temporarily withdrawn and at 1.2u the convention took a recess until 3 o’clock. During the mid-day recess a meeting of female delegates was held at Hie st. Charles Hotel, at which It was decided to issue a circular letter to the women of tne country, entreating their sympathy and gld for the Prohibition party. Mrs. Mattie McClellan Brown, Mrs. stewart of Ohio and Miss Willard of Illiuois were placed upon the national committee. _ Afternoon Session. At the opening of the afternoon convention a large number of despatches were read, congratulating the convention.and urging Governor BL John’s nomination. One from New Hampshire read: “Two hundrea thousand Methodists are willing to vote for St. John.” Another from the temperance convention at Indianapolis conveyed greetings. After the reading of the despatches had been concluded, tbe chair announced that the pending business was the motion to make the nomination of St. John unanimous. Professor Hopkins of New York submitted an amendment that tbe roll of Hie States be called. A large number of delegates urged that the nomination be deferred to the last moment, as the probabilities were that the platform would create bickerings aud bad feeling, and a good burrah at the end over Hie nominations would be desirable In the interest of harmony and good feeling. The convention, however, refused to postpoue the nomination, and the roll call was begun. All tbe delegations voted unanimously for St. John, and when the secretary made the announcement, giving the total vote cast as 602, the audience rose to its feet, cheered vociferously for several moments, and sang “Glory Kaileiujau” aud Hie long metre doxology. More cheering followed as a canvas picture of the nominee was carried around the hall. A despatch containing tile an-avuttcetucut WM At auge soul to Mr. tU. John, who wth, under God, of our widely-extended country, which, imperilling the perpetuity of our civil and gtous liberty, arc baleful fruits by which we know t these laws are alike contrary to God's taws, and was speaking at a camp meeting at Lakeside, near Rochester, NI. Y. The committee on resolutions then submitted the following platform: First—The. Prohibition Home Protection party, in national convention assembled, acknowledge Almighty God as the rightful sovereign of all men, from whom the just powers of the government arederived, and to whose laws human enactments should conform: and that neace. prosperity aud happiness only can eoine to the people w lieu their laws of the national anti State government are in accord with tho divlue will. Second—That the Importation, manufacture, supply and sale of alcoholic beverages, created and maintained bv the laws of the national and State governments during the entire history of such laws, are everywhere shown to be the promoting cause of intemperance, with resulting crime and pauperism, making large demands upon public and private charity, imposing large and unjust taxation and public burdens for penal and sheltering institutions upon thrift, industry, manufactures and commerce, endangering the public peace, desecration of the Sabbath, corrupting our jiolitics. legislation and administration of the law. shortening lives, impa.ring health and diminishing productive industry, causing education to bo neglected aud despised, aud nullifying tbe teachings of the Bible, Hie church and Hie school. The standards and guides of our fathers and their children in the founding and growth, under God, of our widely-extended country, and w' religii that t____.__________________„    I contravened our happiness,and we call upon our fel-low-cltizens to aid in therepealof these laws and the legal suppression of this baneful liquor traffic. Third—The fact that, during tbe twenty four years In which Hie Republican party has controlled the general government and that of many of the States, no efforts have been made to change this policy; that Territories have been created from the national domains. ann governments for them established, and States from them admitted to tile Union, but iii no instance in any of them has thin traffic been forbidden or the people, of these Territories or States been permitted to prohibit it; that there are now over 200.-000 distilleries, breweries, w holesale and retail dealers in these drinks, holding certificates and claiming the authority of government for tile continuation of a business so destructive to the moral and material welfare of the people, together with tile fact that they have turned a deaf ear to remonstrance and petition for tne correction of this abuse of civil government, is conclusive proof that the Republican party is insensible to, or impotent for, Hie redress of those wrongs, aud should no longer be entrusted with the powers aud responsibilities of government. That although this party Iii its late national convention was silent on the liquor question, not so its candidates, Messrs. Blaine aud Logan. Within tile year past Mr. Blaine has publicly recommended that the revenue derived from the liquor traffic shat! be distributed among tile States, and Senator Logan has. by bill, proposed to devote these revenues to the support of schools; thus, lioth virtually recommend the perpetuation of the traffic, and that the States and its citizens shall become partners iii the liquor crime. Fourth—The fact that the Democratic party has lit Its national deliverance of party policy arrayed itself on tile side of the drlnkniakers and sellers by declaring against the policy of prohibition of such traffic under the false name of sumptuary laws; and when iii power in some of the States in refusing to pass remedial legislation, and in Congress, of refusing to permit the creation of a board of inquiry to investigate and report upon the effects of this traffic, proves that tile Democratic party should not be entrusted with power and place. Fifth—That there can be no greater peril to tbe nation than the existing competition of the Republican and Democratic parties for tbe liquor vote. Experience shows that any party not openly opposed to the traffic will engage iii this competition, will court tile favor of tile criminal classes, will barter away tbe public morals, the purity of the ballot and every trust and object of good government for party success, and patriots and good citizens should (iud in this practice sufficient cause for immediate withdrawal troni all connection with these parties. Sixth—That while we favor reforms In the administration of tbe government, in tho abolition of all sinecures, useless offices aud officers, in the election by the people of officers of government instead of appointment by tile President; that competency, honesty and sobriety are essential qualification* for hol'ding civil offices, and we oppose removal of such persons for mere administrative offivus. except so far as It may be absolutely necessary to secure effectiveness to the vital issues im wide Ii the general administration ot the government lins been entrusted to a party; that the collections of revenues from liquors and tobacco should lie abandoned, as the vices of men are not a proper subject for taxation; that custom duties should be levied for the expenses of tile government and economically administered, and when so levied tbe fostering of American labor, manufactures and industries should constantly be beld in view; that the public land should lie bela for homes for the people aud not for gifts to corporations; that it - should not be held iii large bodies for speculation on tho needs of actual settlers; that all moneys, coin and paper shall lie m#o, issued and regulated’ by the general government, and shall be a legal tender for ail debts, public and private; thai grateful care and support should be given our soldiers aud sailors and their dependent widows and orphans; that we repudiate Americans who hold opinions contrary to and subversive of Hie Declaration of Independence, upon which our government lias grown to be a government of 66,000.<KX) people, and a recognized power among nations; Unit while these arc important reforms, and are demanded for purity of administration and tile welfare of the people, their‘Importance sinks into insignificance when compared with the reform of tho drink traffic, which now annually w'astesifrtOO.OOO.OOO of the wealth created by toil aud thrift, aud drags down thousands of families from comfort to poverty, and which fills Jails, penitentiaries, insane asylums aud hospitals. which destroys the health, saps the industry and causes loss of life and property to thousand* iii tbe land, lowers intellectual and physical ' vigor, dulls the cunning hand or tile artisan, is tile chief cause of bankruptcy, Insolvency and loss in trade, and by its corrupting power endangers the perpetuity of free institutions; that Congress should exercise Its undoubted power and prohibit the manufacture and sale of Intoxicating beverages in tile I).strict of Columbia, Hie Territories of the United States, and iii all places over which the government has exclusive jurisdiction; tliat, hereafter no Stute shall be admitted into the Union until its constitution .shall expressly prohibit polygamy and the manufacture and sale of intoxicating beverages. ■Seventh—We earnestly call tile attention of the laborer and mechanic, tne miner and manufacturer, and ask investigation of the baneful effects upon labor and industry, caused by the needless liquor business, which will lie found to bo the robber who lessens wages and profits, and the destroyer of Hie happiness and the family welfare of the feborlug man. That labor and all legitimate industry demand deliverance from taxation and loss which this traffic imposes and Unit no tariff or other legislation can so healthily stimulate production or increase a demand for capital aud lalair. or produce so much comfort and content as the suppressing of this traffic would bring to the inhering luau, mechanic or employer of labor throughout our lund. Eighth— That tile activity and co-operation of the women of America for the promotion of temperance lins in all Hie history of tile past been a strength and encouragemt ut which we gratefully acknowledge and record. In the later and present phase of the movement for the prohibition of the license traffic by the abolition of the drink saloon, Hie purity of purpose aud method, tbe earnestness, zeal, intelligence and devotion of the mothers and daughters of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union lias been eminently blessed by God. Kansas and Iowa have given lier sheaves of rejoicing, und Hie education aud arousing of the public mind and tho demand for a constitutional amendment now prevailing are largely Hie fruit of lier prayers and labors, and we rejoice to have our Christian women unite with us; that sharing in the labor that shalt tiring Hie abolition of tills traffic to tile polls, she shall loin in tile grand “Braise God, from whom all bless-.ngs How,” w hen by law our boys und friends shalt be free from legal drink temptations. Ninth—That believing in the civil and political equalitv of Hie sexes, and that tile ballot in the hand or woman is right for lier protection, and would prove a powerful ally for the abolition of Hie drink saloon, tile execution of law, tile promotion of reform in civil affairs and the removal of corruption iii public life, aud, so believing, we relegate the practical outworking of this reform to the discretion of tile Prohibition party lit the several States according to the condition of public sentiment in those States. Tenth—That gratefully we acknowledge and praise God tor the presence of His Spirit, guiding Hie councils and granting the success which has been vouchsafed iii Hie progress of the temperance reforms, aud, looking to Him from whom all w isdom and help come, w e ask the voters of the United States to make tile principles of the above declaration a ruling principle in the government of the nation and of the States. The third plank was made the basis of an animated debate. One of tbe delegates, whose name could not be ascertained in the contusion, moved tliat all references to Blaine and Logan be stricken out. This was vigorously antagonized by Russell of Michigan and several others, and finally Hie section In its entirety was adopted with prolonged applause and cries of “Give It to them hoi!” Next some commotion was created by Professor Hopkins of New York, who wanted the convention to strike out the Greenback section. He declared that representing, as he did, the Good Templars of his State he would be recreant to his trust it he tailed to utter a pi niest against a plank which was foreign to prohibition and with which hundreds ot Good Templars could uot agree. Dr. Miner of Boston replied that the section in question was the very meat of Hie platform, aud asked his hearers if they had forgotten the rascally circumstances under which the Pacific bauk of Bo8lou went down. -A delegate from New Jersey rose and excitedly declared that he would leave the convention lf the plank was approved, but he was laughed baek into his seat, and the resolution to strike out tne financial plank was lost by a viva voce vote of about ten to one. Av this juncture, a disposition being apparent to discuss every line of the platform, a resolution to adopt It as a whole and refer It back to tbe committee for editing was rushed through the convention. The chairman then read the United Press despatch concerning the manner in which the nomination of St. John was received In New York and the East, and the Information it contained was greeted with three cheers and a tiger. A motion was agreed to making the name of the party the "Prohibition Party,” and after the consideration of business of a routine character the convention, at 5.25 o’clock, took a recess until 8 p. in. • The national commute met at 7 o’clock and elected Johu B. Finch of Lincoln, Neb., chairman ; D. P. Sagendarph of Charlotte, Mlcb., vice-chalrmau; A. J. Judkins of Chicago, corresponding secretary; A. J. Van Fleet of Chicago, recording secretary; and S. D. Hastings of,Madison, Wls., treasurer. The gentlemen named, with Miss Frances E. Willard of Evanston, III., and Mr. M. McClellan Brown of Cincinnati, will constitute the executive committee of the party, with full power to act when the geueral committee is uot lu session. Evening Session. The convention was called to order at 8.15 p. rn. with prayer by Rev. A. J. Jenkins of Chicago. The first business was tbe presentation of the report of the finance committee by Governor Clinton B. Flake of New Jersey. Pledges were solicited for subscriptions to the “pioneer boule mud.” which require Ute sub scriber to pay the amount of his subscriptions annually so long as he shall live, or until the party’s candidate for president or vice-president shall be elected. The number of $10 subscriptions received aggregated $440. The omnmlt’.ee on resolutions reported a substitute for the financial plank in the platform, hut atter a protracted discussion it was unanimously agreed that there was no necessity for embodying a tinanclai plank In tne platform. With but one dissenting voice the entire financial section was stricken out. The roll of States was then called for the nomination of candidates for vice-president. Mrs. S. Caroline Buell of Connecticut. In a few weli-chosen words, placed in nomination for the second place on the ticket Hon. George P. Boogers. VV lien Dakota was called a delegate arose and nominated Hon. William Daniel of Maryland. Airs. Minnie A. Jackson of Georgia, In a very eloquent manner aud amid tremendous and loug-contmued applause, Rise placed before the convention the mime of Hon. William Daniel, tho “little giant ot Maryland.” California, through Colonel Babcock, seconded the nomination of Darnel, and was followed by similar action on the part of Kansas, The nomination of Mr. Daniel was also seconded by Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri aud Michigan. New Jersey, till outfit Mr. Ransom, nominated Clinton B. Fiske of New Jersey. New York placed In nomination Colonel George W. Boyne of Kentucky, and seconded the nominations of Messrs. Daniel and Fiske, the delegation being divided. Ohio seconded the nomination of Daniel. Pennsylvania followed with seconds of Fiske and Daniel, aud the nomination of Miss Frances Willard ot Illinois. Tennessee seconded Boyne of Kentucky, and Texas fell into Hue with a second for Daniel. West Virginia and Wisconsin. followed suit. Mr. J. Ii. Finch oi Nebraska spoke Iii behalf of General Boyne of Kentucky, saying that he could nuder no circumstances accept tho nomination, that lie luut given his fortune to the cause and the delegates could not properly Insist upon his making the sacrifice which would be necessary should he be selected as Hie nominee for the second place on tim ticket. At this point Connecticut withdrew the nomination of Rogers und declared for Darnel. lion. Chilton B. Fiske took the platform and delivered a strong prohibition address, which, bristling with humor, was very warmly applauded. During the course of his remarks ho emphatically declined to be a candidate, and closed by eloquently Indorsing bis friend Daniel. Then at 12 o’clock, on motion of Mr. Lake of Illinois, the rules were suspended, and the nomination of Hon. William Darnel of Maryland was made unanimous by a rising vote. Thereupon Mr. Daniel briefly acknowledged the honor amidst rousing cheers. A few minutes were spent In routine business. Votes of thanks were passed to Hie various officers, and at 12.30 a. iii. the National Prohibition Convention ut 1884 came to an end. Two Rival State Conventions in Indiana. Indianapolis, July 24.—The two Prohibition conventions held In lids city today have been the occasion or considerable excitement and bitterness of feeling in temperance rauks. One of tho meetings, held In English’s Theatre, was called with the full determination of putting a straight prohibition ticket for State officers in Hie held ami refused to allow any one differing from that policy to take part in tim convention. As a consequence many well-known prohibitionists were pushed out. The other convention met under the presidency of Colonel WHI Cum-back iii tho Grand Opera House. Their first work was to appoint a committee to present overtures to the opposition, with a view of a I Gelidly conference, aud both meeting together In the afternoon session. Their committee, however, was refused a hearing by the English's Theatre convention, which promptly tabled tho request for a conference. Later in the day this action was reconsidered, and a committee was appointed, but not until a ticket had been placed In nomination. This was taken as a direct aud Intentional Insult by the Grand Opera House gathering and gave rise to some savage comments. The bater Anally resolved to organize a constitutional convention. SOI K OKA PEN. Caumiaiioaer Dudley, Paining to Get maine Iudaartvd, Call* the Prohibitor# Convention a " Democratic Annex.’' .* [Special Despatch to The Boston Ololm.l Washington, July 24.—Commissioner of Pensions Dudley, failing In bis endeavor to secure Hie indorsement of the Republican candidate for president by the the Prohibitionists’ convention at Pittsburg, returned to this city yesterday, aud in an interview today pronounces tne convention “a Democratic annex.” Ile says: “It seemed to mo from what I heard that seveu out of every ten were Democrats. I regard Urn convention as merely a Democratic annex, aud in talking with the delegates and getting down to tim bottom facts, this Is the object they have in view.” “Perhaps it is just as well that they did not endorse Blame?” said the reporter. “Well, I think that It will be six of one and a half-dozen of the other. Tim saloon interest In Indiana aud Ohio is organized and united, and it votes solidly the Democratic ticket. They persuaded the Democrats to insert a plank In the national platform In their interests, and lf the Prohibitionists now give their aid to defeat the Republican candidate they will elect the candidate of the saloon interests. By this term I do not mean the German vote, so-called, as that is a different element.” DROWNED AT WELLS BEACH. Only One of u Party of Three Hoyt Readied from the II makers. [Special Despatch to The Bostou Globe.I Portland, July 24.—A Boston gentleman named .Small gave this evening a very graphic description of the accident at Wells beach today. Said he: "This morning Fred Hovey of Boston Invited Edward Bell and William Tripp to go fishing with him. Boll was willing, but young Tripp at first made some objections, but at last consented to go. The three' made preparations for a trip to extend over several hours. Their departure was watched by a merry group of young persons, mostly young ladies. They started oft well, but on reaching the breakers there seemed to be some trouble. The water was rough, ami from shore it looked as thomrh the youug men had lost control of the boat. Neither of them had, it is said, auy great skill in boating. Suduenlv the boat upset, aud the peoplo on shore could see the boys struggling in the water. The distance was not great, and a boat was at once sent lo their assistance. When very near the boat it was seen that Bell was clinging to it, but that the other two had gone Uowu forever. Bell was very weak, and It was with gre:it difficulty he kepi lits crip on the boat until the rescures reached him. As soon us he was rescued. Bell said: "Trip has carried Fred down.” Later ho said that when the boat upset Im caught hold oi It. At the same time Hpvey tried to swim, bul Tripp caught blin aud held him last. At last lie fairly wound his arms around the neck ot his unfortunate companion. Weighted down til this way Hovey was unable of course to keep up. and both went down together. Hovey, it is said, was an excellent swimmer, while Tripp, although a resident of Wells, could uot sw im at a1!.” Mr. Email said that at the time he left the bodies had not been recovered, Ho was compelled, however, to leave almost immediately after the accident. Fred Hovey was a son of Colonel II. Hovey of 39 Circuit street, Roxbury. Ile was 18 years old last Mardi, a graduate of Hie high school, aud had passed a successful examination for admission to the Institute of Technology. Colonel Hovey left for the scene of the accident iii the afternoon. Probably Eight Deaths from a Threshing Engine Explosion. [Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.! Rushville, Ind., July 24.—J. W.

Ladies’ Day on the Tented Field at Framingham. Geueral Peach Drills the Brigade in tbe Afternoon to Mach Applause. Work at the Butts—Men Well Set Up —Camp Notes. [Special Despatch to The Boston Olohe.l South Framingham, July 24.—The shower of last evening passed over the camp and the stars were shining at ll p. in., and the cool southwest breeze made the night pleasant. The camp was very quiet, and those who desired to sleep had a good night’s rest. The guard duty was well performed, most of the sentries being well posted. A compliment should be paid the headquarters guard ol yesterday from the Ninth Regiment, though they made some mistakes In salutes. They presented a fine appearance, were well set up, and attended to their duties In a soldierly manner, and were complimented by many of the military men. Roll calls have been fairly well attended In camp, bm there Is a tendency to neglect them In some companies, aud an inclination on Hie part of a few to be careless in getting out on time. A severe dose of fatiguo duty would do such men good. In one of the commands the colonel this morning gave a non-coiiiinlsstoiied officer just thirty seconds to turn out for duty in, and the sergeant came out. Tills ttttlo experience might be repeated with benefit toothers. The Fifth and the Ninth have setting-up drill each morning atter reveille, and it gives the men aa appetite for breakfast. The brigade guard for today came from the Eighth Regiment, wan Malar Sprague as field officer ot the day. The detail came on la good style, the personal appearance of the men was good aud they were steady during the ceremony, but the non-commissioned officers were not up In their duties, aud tho two lieutenants got a Utile nervous and did not do as somely lighted lip with Chinese lanterns In honor of the ladles who visited them today. It was a great attraction at the left of the brigade line. Tlie night was a beautiful one aud hundreds of people remained about the camp until a late hour. About 6 o’clock Governor Robinson arrived Iii camp. unexpectedly, and In a few minutes the guns of Major Merrill boomed out their welcome salute of seventeen guns. The Governor will remain over night und review the brigade tomorrow afternoon, In accordance with the annual custom. Judge-Advoeate George has completed the rifle practice of the brigade, but tomorrow and Saturday brigade and battalion staffs will take a baud, aud on Saturday tbe ties will be shot off. Alight system of inspection prevails at the butts. Tho men do not receive any cartridges until they step upon the tiring points; I lieu each man receives five rounds of ammunition, and each shot Is registered, and when they are all tired the boxes are all carefully inspected. Following Is the qualifying scores of the Fifth and Hie Eighth regiments, as made up to date. The Ninth will be made up tomorrow. All the companies but three have been at Hie butts, two of those not having compiled with the rule requiring armory practice, aud the third being the new company lroni Marblehead. FIFTH REGIMENT.

Tile passage iii review was good ami the salutes fair; hut one of the officers did not recover Ids sword until he had passed tho field officer of the day about twenty yards. Drill call bi ought out all tho organizations for duty. Tho Ninth Regiment was at Hie butts, except those who were out on com (tally drill. The Filth and the Eighth him a forenoon of battalion work, and accomplished good results. Tho artillery battalion did a splendid forenoon's work, executing some of Hie most Intricate movements In good style. With so many new men In the battalion, however, more attention might bo paid to platoon movements by battery. Some capital tiring was done, the intervals In some Instances being excellent. The cavalry battalion had Company Drill With Carbine*, and gained some knowledge of handling its new weapons. The policing of the camp Is excellent today, but It is said by impartial observers that Quartermaster Newton of tho cavalry battalion has tho cleanest quarters oil tho field. He remains at bls post, and watches things early and late. Tho influx of visitors bogan oarly today, and nearly every headquarters had many of the ladies present, together with past members aud gentleman trlends. Surgeon Burrell of the cavalry battalion was tim avant courier of headquarters, aud met Hie lady friends ana wives of the staff at tho station, aud escorted them to the headquarters, where they remained during Hic day. The work ut the afternoon consisted of brigade drill, tho cavalry and artillery boing excused, and permitted to drill by themselves. The lino was formed promptly at 3 o’clock, aud the Flftti and the Ninth regiments moved lot ward In battalion line In fine shape, the Eighth running by the flank in order to close the Interval, aud then moving to tho front. The brigade made a splendid present toGeneral Beach. The first movement executed was to form column of battalions ot first battalion, left Iii front.

Both gentlemen are nearly 90 years old, but full [Philadelphia Times, July 23.] In a half-inch police Item in Tuesday morning’s papers, relating that Anthony Noll, a German baker, bad entered the shop of Anna Belli.ilz and threated to kill her, there Is hidden a story of love, madness, fatality, heroism, soap and sour dough sufli as seldom comes out In the news of the day. There are two Anna Bedralzes. One Is the mother, who keeps the shop at 404 Poplar street. Into which Noll rushed with murder In his heart and a 42-100 calibre English "biili-dog” In his hand. It was not this woman, however, whom lie came to kill, but her daughter Anna, a tall, slim, darkeyed girt, with glossy hair and an olive cheek, whom ho had loved for four years and by whom he had been rejected. It was she, and no officer of the seventh police district, who quelled tho madman. When he stood with the weapon levelled at the door by which lie knew she would enter the shop,' the girl walked quietly up to the muzzle of the pistol, and, confident of lier (rawer, smiled pleasantly in the man s face. His hand dronped (rawer-less, and he stood with his eyes as firmly fixed oil his sweetheart’s countenance as they had been on the sight of the revolver. Tliete Anna stood and smiled and Anthony stood and stared until Officer i'ercey came Iii and arrested the would-be assassin as easily us he might have (ticked up a 1) t*e ball playing urchin. Ile had tne same stale Iii Ins eyes when Magistrate Ladner beld bim under the $1200 ball which lie could not find, and lie went to orison, still gaping at Anna’s imagined smile. Four years ago Anthony was a regular attendant at St. Peter’s, me huge church of the Redeniptorlat Fathers al Fifth street atm Girard avenue. Thither, too. came Amra. Anthony's eyes wandered one day in the midst of a Kyrie, and fell upon ber. Ile thought that she looked, when she bowed lier long, slim figure in prayet, Uke St. Elizabeth of Hungary in a South German church window. When he found that lier mother kept a manufactory of faticy soap. and that Anna sometimes waited on customers, he was overjoyed. Tira next night, before going to work, he slopped at tho soap shop and invested a day’s wages Iii soap. Ile received it from the hands of Antra herself. That night hts companion* jeered him about his cargo of soap, aud asked him lf he was going to scour Now Market street. He smiled. None of that soap, he was sure, would ever come toto contact with a thing unclean.    A There were no love dreams In tho head of A tin a Uelhatz. At first she thought Noll crazy as he came and bought soap every day and suggested that lf he intended lo start a shoo her motlier could slock It at wholesale prices. Tills was Anthony's lookedfor opportunity, lie plunged eagerly Into a discussion of the soap business, aud from Unit got upon general subjects, lie continued his visits but ceased to buy soap, except In such quantities as he required for use. One day tie thought he saw a kindlier light In Anna’s dark eyes as she laughed ami said "More soap?” aud immediately he proposed marriage. "Then,” said Null, “my misery began. I was haunted by lier phantom aud lier shadow fell across my dough. ’I smiled.” Driven from place to place, with the dough-souring shadow ever following, he grew mad with love. Ream after ream of Uftecn-ceni notepaper lie covered witli Gorman characters amt tear blots. AU Hie letters remained unanswered. Null attributed this to the Influence ut John Bauman, who w as paying court to one of Anna’s sisters. Ho dogged the man about, Intent on killing him. F'hiullv tlio shadow on the dough brought him lace to face with penury. Thinking that the Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore railroad might not furnish free transportation to the shadow, ho tied lo Baltimore. In vain. “Her shadow,” said Null, “was still on the dough.” Ho relumed. Du Saturday he got a position in a Maiinyuuk bakery. Oil Munday morning Hie dough soured. That night, with trembling hands, he kneaded a batell In a bakery at Twenty-fourth and CuUowffiU streets. He walked the streets all night and at dawn repaired to the shop. In the morning sunlight, which entered the door with him, be saw the shadow, ami he rushed forth to buy the revolver, within two bichos of whose muzzle Anna Belhaiz stood aud smiled.
