Adjourned. ratans or square CHEERS FOR M’KINLEY. He Ku- Renominated Amid Intense thusiaam at Massillon, Ohio. Cleveland, Aug. 20.—The opera house was jammed full of republicans when the McKinley convention opened at Massillon this afternoon. A telegram from Secretary Blaine was read, causing immense cheering. Congressman Smyser introduced Judge Munson, of Medina, who made a speech nominating McKinley. Ile reserved McKinley's name to the last and when it was pronounced tire* cheers and shouts that arose fairly shook Hie house. When the vote was called tor by Smyser the walls quivered with the mighty “aye” that went up and the crowd cheered and cheered again. Major McKinley then followed with his speech of acceptance which was a masterly effort. A number of other speeches were made and the convention ended amid great enthusiasm. TONGUES OF FLAME. McY'ioker's “Fire-Proof Theater*’ in Chicago Burned—Incendiarism Suspected. Chicago. Aug. 20.—Fire was discovered in McVicker's theater at 3:30 this morning. As far as it can be learned it originated in the smoking room under tile stage. The flames spread rapidly and smoke filled the entire building. Thirty minutes after starting the tire had made its way from tho basement of the roof and a few minutes before four o'clock was leaping from all windows on the west and east sides of tile theater. Tile guests in the Saratoga and Windsor hotels and the Bennett house became panic stricken and lied, although there was no danger. While seven firemen were at work in the auditorium the roof fell in, but they escaped without injury. The rear wall then fell in and all the men were buried in the ruins. .lack Duffy had his skull fractured and will probably die. The others were more or less seriously hurt. The front part of the building was occupied by stores and offices and the loss there will be heavy. The total loss to the theater building and its occupants is estimated at over 8200,000. Horace Mc-Vicker, the proprietor, says his loss will reach over 8100,000. Several stores on State street caught fire but the flames were soon extinguished. The watchman thinks tile lire was of incendiary origin. He said about two o’clock he fouud a small blaze in a pile of rags under the stage, which he put out. Returning a short time after he discovered a tire under the auditorium and was fighting the flames when the engines arrived. ARE IN FOR FIGHT. The New York Central Still Firm. Strikers A Mass Meetlug at New York Addressed by Powderly and Others—The Chicago Stock Yards Strike Not Ended—Labor News. They Nearly Destroy the Village of I’ink-stalV, Illinois. Si'.'INKit. 111., Aug. 20.—Fir** at three o’clock yesterday morning destroyed tho greater part of the village of Pinkstaff, a few miles northeast of this city. The loss is about 86,000 with little insurance. ELECTED TO GET MARRIED. Attorney Fisher, of Rockford, Chosen to Forsake the Bachelordom Within a Year. Rockford, 111., Aug. 26.—Attorney Arthur S. Fisher is a candidate for matrimonial honors. He is a member of the Owl club, a society of Ogle county bachelors. and his doom was sealed at its picnic August 15. During the day came the election of officers. Among th** offices is one called “The 810,000 Beauty of the Club,” and lie who is elected to this office must marry within a year and withdraw from tile society. The charm has never failed to work yet, and every man who has been elected to the office has been married within the vear. Every other officer is elected by acclamation, but this one is elected by solemn and secret ballot. When the ballots were counted it was found that Mr. Fisher was the doomed man. The good-natured attorney made a pleasant speech and tried in Ii is clever way to turn it off as a joke. Tho sequel has never failed to occur. Albany', N. Y\, Aug. 26.—The papers were eagerly read by the strikers and the members of the general executive board this morning to learn the full details of the proceedings of the supreme council at Terre Haute yesterday. When Mr. Devlin had finished reading the papers he said: “The situation looks more favorable than we had any reason to expect. We knew, as is stated in this morning’s papers, that the council could not help us by ordering a general strike, as none of tile members of the federation had any grivauces which could draw them into our fight contrary to tile law of the federation on this point. Knowing this, and observing the action of the council yesterday, I can say that the aid offered surpasses: our expectations. We did not think the council would arraign the railroad company in such a sweeping denunciation of the methods they are now employing in an endeavor to destroy our organization. It shows that they realized tile gravity of the situation. and so realizing, they have extended to us the full assistance at their command. The resolutions adopted show an honest opinion among the members of the council, such as they had expressed before leaving New York, that the company's posit ion was a direct attack upon organized labor. They have extended to us not only moral support, but financial assistance, the latter being more than we expected, and they have, in fact, determined to support the fight as their own. We shall now go right on and win the struggle on our former lines of campaign.”    _ A Mass 31eetiiig. Nkw York, Aug. 26.—About twenty-five hundred persons including curiosity seeker* and a heavy police force attended a mass meeting of the Knights of Labor at Union Square to-night. It did not equal either in number or enthusiasm the expectations of the projectors of the meeting. The interest centered mainly iii Powderly. The former employes of tin1 New York Central of this city marched In a body to the square behind a drum corps. The men were loudly cheered. Opposite tho cottage a truck had been hauled, which was occupied by several    speakers,    the    most    prominent them    being Professor    Garside, of the Cloakmaker’union. His speech was a repetition of the one delivered at the Cloakmaker' mass meeting in Cooper Union    some time    ago,    with    the additional    advice to    do    way    with the Webbs and Depews and have a universal labor co-operation throughout tile United States. The magnates of the meeting were assembled on the main platform. Powderly and Hayes and the promoters of the meeting were all there. Mrs. Margaret Moore, who figures prominently in Irish politics in this city gave a five minute address. She counselled organization among the laboring classes and advocated self-reliance. Letters of regret for non-attendance were read from Samuel Gomper, president of the Federation of Labor. He sympathized with the men and denouced the attempt* of the company to crush their organization. Powderly was the next speaker. Ile * ai* I:    you    may feel disheartened because the Terre Haute convention did not declare a general strike. Your executive board did not expect it would. All we expected was to have their support and they are with us, horse, foot and artillery [Cheers]. They believe—they know—we are right, and they have stated their opinion boldly. They say our battle must go on and go on it will. The Central railroad officers may talk about goods being delivered, but they don’t tell the truth. There are many merchants in New York who know different. Powderly then dwelt with Webb's charges that the men were dismissed for drunkenness or other causes prejudicial t<> the interests of tile company. The speaker next dealt with Chief Arthur. He said Arthur recently sat on tin* platform with railroad officials at New* Haven and they put their arms around his neck. “The strike which we have inaugurated'*. Powderly said, “is not only a strike of the people of New York but of the people of America.’’ The meeting then listened to a fiery preamble followed by resolutions which denounced the New York Central officers as arbitrary and tyrannical. Several local speakers followed and then the meeting broke up. Webb Says Everything it All Right. New York, Aug. 26—Vice President Webb this morning said everything along the line of the road was in good condition and that freight was moving briskly.__ WILL FIGHT THE KNIGHTS. that each road will hereafter do its own switching. It is now a question whether the employes of the different railroads will agree to take the places of the strikers that formerly composed the em-ployesof the switching association. Should the railroad men refuse,every road entering Chicago may be tied up before forty-eight hours. From the fact that the strike inaugurated last night was irregular or the fact of the men failing to submit their demand for increase pay to their superiors before striking, it is believed that the Switchmen's association will not countenance the strike. Chicago aud Alton Switchmen Strike.^ Chicago, Aug. 26.—Switchmen on the Chicago and Alton road have struck because the company wished to put one of its old employes in charge of the yard at Brighton. About forty-five are out altogether. Passenger trains are moving all right, but freight trains are tied up. Freight Trains Running on Time. Chicago, Aug. 26.—The following dispatch was received this morning at the office of the Lake Shore road from General Passenger Agent Daniels of the New York Central:    “Our operating department has authorized tho freight department to resume the carrying of perishable freight, and all our traffic is being moved as usual. Passenger trains are on time, and no further trouble is anticipated.” CRANBERRIES WILL BE HIGH. REVOLTS FEARED IN BELGIUM Labor Trouble Endanger England’s Australian Trade. The Cholera Epidemic—How It Origin-ated—Bishop O’Dwyer Modifies His Attitude — Ills Denunciation of Boycotting—Gossip. The Y ield This ear YY'ill Be Far Short of an Average Crop. Berlin, Wis., Aug. 24.—The last few days have been full of anxiety to cranberry growers in this section. The frost predicted by the signal service came Thursday night and rumors are current that many of the producing marshes near here have suffered in consequence. The season here has been unfavorable for tile development of the berry, there having been too much water during the spring months and too much hot weather during July and August. Under favorable conditions the vines would have yielded 30,-000 barrels, but various estimates place the, crop—which will be taken off in about lo days—from 6,000 to 8,OOO barrel*. The prospective yield in the cranberry district north of this belt. is estimated at 50,000 barrels and will not fall short of that unless an early frost cuts it down. TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS REWARD. I,literal Offer fur the Arrest of the Murderer of J. ,1. Stillwell ut Hannibal, Mo. IIannibae, Mo., Aug. 26.—The son of Mr. J. .1. Stillwell, who was murdered in this city Sunday morning, December 30, I SSS, to-day offers a reward of $10,000 for the arrest of the assassin. Mr. Stillwell was brained with an ax while sleeping in a room with ills wife and children. Mrs. Stillwell claims to have seen the murderer when lie entered the room, but, fearing for the safety of the children. covered herself and thorn with bedclothing, through which she heard the murderous blows which killed her husband. She afterwards married a physician of this city, and Hie tongue of gossip has been very busy about her affairs ever since. The son evidently believes that his father was murdered by a burglar. A Dynamite Experiment Failure. Syracuse. N. Y., Aug. 26.—About three hundred persons gathered near the village of Perryville this afternoon to see Dr. Justin, of this city, fire his patent dynamite shell. On May 27, when Dr. Justin gave a public test of his shell, one of them exploded and blew Hie gun into fragments. The same thing happened this afternoon and the spectators had a fine view of the cannon weighing thirty thousand pounds being blown in the air. The gun went to pieces on the fourth shot. Many persons were within twenty cards of tile gun but none were hurt. oada Plumb then spoke amendment, opposed the matter of reserving reser-“■ ’*rom the settlement, the con-f'ffiort on tin* sundrv civil appro-i[10n MI was agreed to. •*' Drift biff was then taken up, to Hi. .    °ff°rod an amendment to end extracted from silver ores Plumb had offered one ‘ ‘ ‘(T 1V-* dll^Y on lead ore and lead eo!r/0tU I ' 10 1 C(‘ats.

A New York Brickmaker^ Combine to Resist a Boycott. New York, Aug. 26.—Ninety-three per cent of the brick producers have signed the manufacturers’ agreement and the remainder are expected to come in to-day or to-morrow when the tie-up will be complete. Its effects will be felt Friday and if the boycott is persisted in by the Knights of Labor nearly 100,000 men will be thrown out of employment SURPRISED THE STRIKERS. Washington Park Chosen. Chicago, Aug. 26.—At a meeting of the world's fair directors this evening by a vote of fifteen to three, it was decided that Washington Park was the most desirable site for the world's fair. A resolution, however, was adopted postponing final decision until the ninth of September, when the national committee will be in session. The usual conflict between the West Side members of the directory and other directors took place. A YVreok on the ll. A O. Baltimore, Aug. 26.—The Chicago express on tile Baltimore <fc Ohio, ran into an open switch near Point of Rocks this evening. The engineer, was killed, the fireman badly injured. No passengers were hurt. Further particulars of the wreck say Fireman Quarles, who was badly scalded, died in a *hort time. A brakeman named Ray was also killed.

Pittsfield, 111.. Aug. 26.—Charles Grimes was killed by his brother-in-law, Alva Thornton, yesterday at the .atter s house, near Independence, this county. Grimes had raised a disturbance and Thornton struck him with a poker. A Mail Carrier Arrested. Quincy, 111., Aug. 26.—William Zang, a mail carrier, was arrested yesterday for stealing letters.

Unexpected Move on the Part of the Stock Yards Roads. Cup ago. Aug. 26.—The strike of the Stock Yards Switching association after the adjustment of tho grievances of the engineers and firemen yesterday, put a new phase on the situation and this morning it was decided to dissolve the association and allow each road to do its own switching. The old men were told their services were no longer needed and others were procured to do the switchmen. Superintendent Marsh went to tho stock yards this morning at the head of throe hundred men to take charge of tho police arrangements there and see that no acts of violence were committed by the strikers. The first road to make a move was the Wabash. It had three engines in the yards, and when the engineers refused to take them out officers of the road took tire. places of tho firemen, engineers and switchmen and tile engines were taken to the round house. It is not expected that the railroads will attempt to-day to take up the work laid down by the switching association. To-morrow, however, will doubtless see a strong effort made to resume business in the yards. The question is, whether the engineers will obey the orders of their superiors, or whether they will see fit to transfer the tie from the switching association to individual roads or those composing it. Tho strikers have given up the fight. They will this afternoon send a committee to the railroad officials asking to be taken back at the old rate of wages. The strike has cost those directly interested not far from a half million dollars. There are 150 cars of dressed meats in the yards, and each car contains 20,000 pounds, and its loss at the matket price means considerable. I he contents of many of the ears are found to be spoiled and unfit for use. ALL ROADS MAY RF. TIED UP. Tile rumor that the striking stock yards switchmen had repented their haste and asked to be taken back by the switching association at tho old rate of wages is untrue. The roads have dissolved their switching association and declared th® striker* discharged, and say Southern Negroes Denounce the Democrats. Raleigh. N. C., Aug. 26.—A largo negro state convention met here to-day and was addressed by negro leaders in the state. They spoke against tho democrats and demanded recognition by the republicans. Resolutions were adopted endorsing Harrison’s administration, the Blair bill and the federal election bill, and protesting against local grievances in the state and demanding more political recognition.___ I Hallo Democrats. Boise City*, Aug. 26.—The democratic state convention met this morning and seated the anti-Mormon delegation from Bear Lake county. A permanent organization effected and the convention took a recess until this afternoon to enable the committee on resolutions to complete a platform. In the afternoon Benjamin Wilson, of Boise county, was nominated for governor. London, Aug. 26.—The labor troubles continue to be a source of worry to thoughtful Englishmen. The enormous trade carried on between England and the Australian colonies is endangered by the bitter fight between the ship owners and the union officers and sailors. The owners have finally decided to refuse employment to members of the Seamen’s union, preferring to lay up their vessels to conceding the demands of the men. There are large numbers of sailors who do not belong to the union, but few competent officers, arid the active sympathy of the whole working class in the British islands is with the men. The prospect now is that hundreds of vessels will be laid up. In England the eight-hour movement is assuming an aggressive form, and large masses of organized workmen are pronouncing in favor of it. The Dublin grain porters have prone on a strike for an advance of wages and the bakers of Newry have followed their example. But the most acute trouble of all is in tin* Morinage mining district of Belgium, where over twenty thousand men are now on a strike. Troops are guarding the mines and patroling tile roads, but their presence is a source of irritation rattier than assurance of peace, and it is feared that rioting may break out at any moment. In France the government has determined to send a commission to the United States to investigate the condition of the workingmen there with a view to recommending legislation next year. The Cholera Scouge. London, Aug. 26.—Advices from .Jeddah say that the cholera which broke out among tile pilgrims returning from Mecca originated with tile Indian passengers and spread to the others. The pilgrims were in a terrible condition of tilth, as they were huddled together thousands in the dampness, unwashed and without sufficient food. Hundreds died who were not reported and the real number of fatalities will never be known. Asiatic cholera is alway to be found in parts of India and nearly every cholera epidemic on record had its origin there. But it seldom reaches Europe in in vessels coming from Indian ports. Its course is generally the one it has taken this year. It is carried from India to Mecca by the Moslem pilgrims, spreads there and is carried to oilier Mohammedan countries and thence to Europe. It is now reported a' spreading in Toledo and other cities in the south of Spain. No other case has occurred in London and Teigh is pronounced out of danger. The cholera reported from the impoverished districts of Ireland is not of the Asiatic type. Bishop O’Divjrr’it Attitude. London, August26.—Bishop O’Dwyer. of Limerick, apparently awed by the forco of the popular demonstration against him. has somewhat modified his attitude. He has published a letter in which he says that he does not impute personal dishonesty to Mr. Dillon, but simply adheres to the papal decision on tho Perisco report and denounces the plan of campaign and the system of boycotting. Despite the clerical condemnation, the boycott is still employed largely as a political weapon, and the system is specially strong in the west of Ireland. The case of a man named Ryan, living near Limerick, is being cited as a proof of tile thoroughness with which tile plan is carried out. Ryan has been striving since I8<7 to live on an evicted farm. The results have been singular. For speeches denouncing Ryan two members of parliament, Finucane and Sheeby, Rev. Father Marinan and others were sentenced to imprisonment. The congregation left the gallery as soon as Ryan entered it. A grocer in Limerick sent a messenger after him and returned him money for goods ordered as soon hs knew to whom the articles had been sold. Ryan was shadowed at fairs until the police bogan *hadowing tho shadowers, and he could not get his horse shod. A firm that has a1 ways repaired his mowing machine refused to do so any longer and has been subjected, he declares, to “all the annoyances and inconvenience that human ingenuity can devise.”—But he still holds on. The Bollito Famine. Dublin, Aug. 26.—At a meeting of the National league here to-day, Timothy Healey, referring to the potato blight, said notiiing stood between the people and starvation during the coming winter. The government was represented as being most anxious to provide employment through the building of new railways, but how could tile railway act recently passed be held to prove the government's intention to meet the coming famine. Besotted stupidity marked the whole conduct of the executive. It might not be legal for tenants to withhold their land rent* during the period of distress, but the man who should pay his rent and leave hi family to starve would be little better than an assassin. Let the landlords support the rent payers. corps requested four days more of truce to try to induce General Ezeta to sign the protocol. Floods In Went Virginia. Wheeling, W. Va., Aug. 26.—Tho heaviest rain storm of the year began here at noon and is still raging hard. Streams are badly swollen. Wheeling creek and Caldwell run, which run through the city, are raging torrents. All the streets in the city were like rivers for more than an hour this afternoon and traffic was interrupted. Advices from the coke regions also speak of a flood. At Uniontown many manufacturers were compelled to close down. Many bridges have been swept away.

The Moduv Operandi of a Clam Bake Explained lo the Uninitiated. Cottage City, Mass., Aug. 22.—Editor Hawk-Eye: I am sure if your readers could “gather at the seashore*’ at the hour of eleven every day, except Sunday, for the “Seventh” is very generally kept here, they would be very much felicitated—and simply by xeclntj us swim.

By the way the mention of the lobster remind me of our Saturday's clam l>alw. This i- a very novel and peculiar repast for we western inland people and has also rare attractiveness for the easterner, by whom it is considered a real epicurean meal. Taking the train at 9:30 for Katama we go to the extreme southern end of the island to what is cammonly known as South Beach, a distance of six or eight miles. Here dwells the expert clam-baker in all his glory, a regular Yankee, one of the “bluest” sort. It requires fifty or sixty minutes to bake the clams and in the meantime we go down to the dock for a brief angling, and with hook and line we while away an hours tim** landing flounder, grunter, toadfish, etc., until the arrival of the second train which brings the New “Yorkah” to his weekly resort and tre*at. The elam-bakc from the ground up. goes after this manner: Make a bed. of stones as large as the head, 5x8 ft. On these place a layer fine of wood, then stone and again wood, and so on alternately for at least three layers, the last one being of wood. Light the wood and burn for one and one-half hours, at which time the cobble stones will be nearly or quite red hot. Having now cleared away all embers place upon tile stones a layer of seaweeds forming a thick ridge around the outside to protect tile canvas with which it is covered, from the hot stones, and upon the seaweeds or rock-moss place a wire gauge, which is to receive everything you may wish to cook, for you must not think that clams alone can be cooked in this manner. for our "bake’’ *>n this occasion included chicken, tish. lobster, dressing, sweet-potatoes and corn, and the quantity is purely a matter of choice, and at this time was on this wise:    Six    bu. clam-, 2 bu. lobsters, I bu. 'Weet-potatoes, 4 large dripping pail" of fish, I bbl. unhusked green corn, with dressing a sufficient quantity. Tile clams we poured <>n in a pile in the center, and the other articles ret in rows around them, then covering the dressed fish, lobsters and dressing neatly and securely, the whole was covered with two large canvases and banking tire whole all around thoroughly to retain tin* heat and steam with wet weeds or hay. You allow about an hour, surely not, less than 50 minutes, to complete the bake The second train whistles and we hasten to the spacious dining room, with a capacity of over two hundred, and if you don't hasten you won't get a seat at the first table, and now the circus begins. The seats all being filled, the waiters may be seen on a keen run to and fro through tie* dining hall with a large wooden bucket or a pan full of clams or lobsters smoking hot, and at each plate are deposited at least a peck of these gaping >heli> and well-cooked lobster with head*, eyes, feet and claws >till attached. Then comes the corn in husk, the potatoes with “jackets on,*’ bread j and melted butter. The clams are to be “shucked" with tile fingers, dipped j into tile melted butter and lowered I into the mouth to the neck, (the neck of the clam. I mean) and at j this point bitten off. You may either I chew them or swallow them whole, as you would an oyster. Most people prefer the former to insure tile delicious * flavor. The lobsters are pulled in pieces, likewise witli the fingers, or the claws broken open upon the table cloth with knife or forK handle. The corn N to be gnawed off the cob, the husk fir>t being turned back, with coffee already milked ami sweetened, and bread sandwiched in as may hest suit the individual. Now, Mr. Editor, some people eat more and somo less of these dainty viands, but the New Englander who cannot “shuck and bite off” a peck of baked clams i> way below the standard (and so i- Mrs. L.) I mean to keep within bounds of truth when I say that my table vis a vis—a lady of the New York “beau monde.” had a pile of garbage which she was obliged to look around when we left the table and we heard her say she “never had enough.” The occupants of s^ats at table all shout at once at the waiters who are too limited in number, some rising up and shaking their hands, and tile scene is more like the New York produce exchange or Chicago board of trade than anything to which I can liken it.
