FORMER AND SHERMAN HAVE A EEaULAE KILKENNY OAT TIME IN OHIO. The Faction Fight Between Hepublioans an Augury of Demooratio.Baooesa-Qoy. Campbell IB Sanguine, COLUMBUS, 0., July. Tho same causes that defeated IJoraker two years ngo are coimng.to the surface and indi- cations point to n very bitter between the Foraker mid Sherman force's. Both are now announced candidates for the TTnitcd States senatorship. Mr. presence in Cin- cinnati this week has compelled Foraker to show his hand in tho ma'tef. The manner in which the Mansfield statesman was ignored by the Forakeritcs at the, recent republi- can convention lias madb him exceedingly hold, HO much so that. )ie oven dares meet tho men who betrayed i him at Chicago in his own political bailiwick and ask "Are you for me or are you amidst When informed that the ex-governor was most em- phatically and enthusiastically for Joseph Benson Foraker and no else, it is said the venerable senator was greiitly relieved, for it was then known that Littld Breeches could not duriiijr the approaching cnmpuiBn assume a double character. Theson'ator seemed deter- mined to satisfy himself that the' Chi- cago convention act should, not bo repeated, and thus j by going to Cincinnati forced the kiig of political in- triguers to disclose his real intention concern- ing the senatorship question. Tha stand taken by these two1 loaders' can not fail to cause serious rupture in the party, and the anti-Forakor elenient will again visa in its might and again J retjro the ex-govomor into oblivion The situation is. gratifying to the democracy, for means McKirilay'g down- fall. Since the Cleveland convention nothing 4has been hoard of any factional flght in the detnocratifc ranks. Everything is harmoni- ous. The hard feelmi inlHamilton county is rapidly dying, and it is believed that tho party' there will be soon thoroughly united. Governor Campbell (was seen by your correspondent to-day (with- the following result': i "On, -what lines will i the campaign be was asked. j rather jhe MoKinler bill, will beihe special robjeot of contention, 'and upon that issue the linosi will -be drawniiry tightly and the whole, stati arauwd to the Ttare issue, ticularly wUl wo oomparo.ourjn.oord for econ- omy and efnclenoy uaKamoent of our state inrtttutions vrith wo will take occasion to point out nt by the i the very many last general assembly.'

"Sincerely upenking, what do youfthink will bo the result of this campaign? Will von able to defeat McKinleyf" y "I believe that 1 will be elected. While our jarty is not wholly harmonious, it is inherent- y much more harmonious than the republican party. The opposition to mo. which per- sonal, will almost entirely cool down and ac- quiese in tho verdict of the convention and with the exception of a very few maioon- m Hamilton county, I do not hrak I will lose any Democratic votes whatever. The republican dissatiafaction, however, is deep seated and grows out of ani- mosities and rivalries between great leaders which can not bo quelled. It is obvious that ox-Governor Foraker and Colonel McKinley are to dominate tha republican parly and con- rol the policy of tho campaign. This will mve tho effect to lope them thousands of votes ust as it did in 1889. But tho greatest change s going to be upon the subject of tariff and especially among the .farmers. I believe his will be especially true in the wool coun- ies, where tho farmers have been humbugged or tho last time with the hope of good results or an exorbitant tariff. While it would be oolish to fix figures now. with tho election our monlliBoil, when such estimates must be wholly conjectured, yet I do not BCD why the democratic ticket can not go to Hamilton SVSS' H Plurality ranging from to What will be done in that county I onotthiuk anybody is now able to intolli- ;ently estimate."

FOET WORTH, Tex., July Stromp- sher, n saloon keeper at the Union depot, waa arrested and taken before a justice of the peace several days ago on a charge of. violat- ing the law against selling.liquora oil Sunday. Ho pleaded guilty to tho facts, but presented that under the new city charter of Fort Worth ho hod a right to sell during certain hours on that day, and urged that tho state authorities had no jurisdiction of the case, inasmuch the city charter gave the .city court jurisdiction of all violations of theSunday law, except between the hours of 9 a. sn. and 4 p, m. It was agreed by the attorneys in the case that tho matter be transferred to the county court and the iaw point raised be argued there. This waa done and to-flay the was taken up and argued at length. Judge Harris said that ho was not prepared to render a decision at present, and would therefore take tho case under advisement. Saloon men and the moral element in the city are watching tho cose with great interest, as upon tho final determination of it will depend whether saloons can bo run in Fort Worth on tho Sabbath. If this case is decided in the county court against the de- fendant it will be appealed to a higher court for a final decision. Veterans at Jack's Creek.
