He arrived in town yesterday afternoon and expected to Start Bock for Chicago this afternoon but May be detained longer. Or. Wilkinson is a Democrat of the True Blue Type and is thoroughly posted on the political situation in Hla state. He is an excellent conversational 1st and when met by a reporter of Leader this morning gave some Facto relative to the feeling Down in the state of the Home of major Mckinley May be of some inter to the democrats of the state of Iowa. Are a. Great Many democrats in the state of notwithstanding the fact that it is the Home of the re publican nominee for said or. Wilkinson. The face of the fact that the republicans carried the state at the recent state to the tune of something Over one Hundred thou Sand there is a Good fighting Chance for the democrats at the com ing election and this fact is Felt by the As is evidenced by the activity that is displayed in their Camp. The republicans Are making a Thor Ough canvass of the state and Are circulating any about of literature among the people. Is True that there Are some who formerly belonged to the democratic party that have bolted it on the Money but at the same time the party will receive support from Many who were members of the Republican party who have come Over on the ques tion of the re monetization of Silver. It is to sum up the exact situation but it is Safe to say that the party will make telling gains All through the state. There is a great mass of intelligent voters in the state who Are not bound to any party but who vote As they feel will be for the Best interests of the country at Large. This class of men will be to a Large extent democrats i this year. Is Factor that will Cut a considerable figure in the election in our state this and that is the fusion of the democratic party and the people s party in the state. There were at the last election about 50.000 votes cast for the candidates of the people s party at the last election and these will naturally go to the democratic party this fail. Tace state of Indiana there will be plenty of democrats on election Day. All through the Northern part of the state and i am informed that it is pretty the same in the Southern part of the state As the democrats Are supporting the Bryan and bewail ticket and that there Are Large acquisitions every Day to the movement. Bryan is billed to speak at to Ledo on the second Day of september and ii is understood that he will reply to some of the statements that were made by senator John Sherman in a recent speech delivered by him. The democrats Are arranging for a big time on thai Day and there is no questions but that he will do a Good Deal of May not have included any of the pre Vious possessors of the place. We can not say. Be that As it the Resi dents of the West Side. In that particular the Pio Wisor Nelpher Andu thers been compelled to suffer great indignities by reason of the carousels in Progress Ever and anon. The Iden Tity of the individual crowd that made night unholy and Dawn hideous at this particular time is of Little importance. The acts tuesday morning seemed particularly outrageous. About pro Fessor Nelpher ran to the residence of judge Wade and stated to him that a Large crowd of tramps were near the House and were out raging a Little girl. The judge immediately drove to town and secured the assistance of the offi cers and Iowa City citizens and the patrol Wagon proceeded to the place to arrest the scoundrels. Upon the scene of shortly before 9 and rib Aldry appeared in defense of Law and order. Deputy sheriff Zeke Constable Jack Butler and special deputies. Curtis w. H. Goodrell and l. B. John son. The order to surrender and accompany the officers to jail called Forth a tirade of abuse and blasphemy. Then came violent resistance when the offi cers sought to arrest the crowd. The woman vanished and several of the men fought like stubbornly and viciously resisting All efforts to Force them into the Wagon. At the simple request of Deputy leak one Man stepped into the vehicle without a struggle. Unfortunately Fol Lowed his but All were finally ended where they were wanted with out bloodshed. Resisted arrest. Especially violent was the resistance of the Man who was so soon to be Hur ried with blood scanned lips into the presence of the whose holy name he was blasphemous by uttering Over and Over. He was finally bundled into the but not until Jack butter s Iron Arm had swung a second Over the doomed tramp s who a suddenly checked Stag gered and Sank Down. He was then placed in the patrol Wagon with the companion tramp and the other Cap Tho county jail to await trial. On James Mcdonough and Luke gave Bond. The police do not consider the living tramp a member of the party lie is quite sick in the City Hall jail and it is thought he had no connection with the crowd. The girl found. Emma Grumas. The girl in the has been found and is in Safe hands. She is yet in her teens. The Community upholds the officer who did the shooting while of is glad that the Man was yet everyone feels certain not Only the dignity of the Law but or. Clark s own safety and the detention of his prisoner were at stake. He was the victim of conspiracy and combined As and took the Only Safe Means left to save himself and keep his Man. Wedding Bells.

They will make their Horn in new York at 8s West one Hundred and thirty fourth Streel the marriage of miss Lillie Hall and Bernard m. Keating was solemnized at a nuptial mass at St. Mary s Church wednesday morning at 8 the Rev. J. P. In the pres ence of friends and relatives. The Young people received the congrats la who of were not Consad 1 tons and Best wishes of their friends off the Bridge. Foolhardy boy Falls from the Fillmore Street Bridge. This morning about 10 o clock an Accident occurred at the r. I p. Crossing at Fulia orc Street in the West end of the City Waich might have been latal in its consequences. A lad living on seventh Street West of Hennepin at to Board the caboose of a pass ing freight train the of taking a when he was jerked off by the swiftness of the train and hurled to the ground. As the train passes fill More Street at this Point Over a sort of a Tunnel through tie Railroad pm thank ered As desperate or dangerous As the strangers. Judge was present during when these arrests were being made and rendered assistance in loading the men into the Wagon. When All the men were in the the Driver gave the word to the and the Wagon started across the Bridge. In less time than it takes to Tell the tragedy occurred. The Battle captors and captives was resumed. The soon to die Nomad recovered control of him self As soon As the effect of the dating blow wore off. And he concentrated his attentions upon Deputy sheriff Clark. The struggling crowd seemed to be after that officer and it seemed for a moment As if he would be hurled from the Wagon and perhaps Over the Bridge. He commanded the fighting tramp to and still the Man. Fought on. Again and again. Or. Clark cried finally he or i la with a shot to terrible the tramp lunged and with clenched fist aimed a blow at the officers blow that would have crushed his or knocked him from the haps under the horses trampling hoofs.

His desperate and his final vicious onslaught had the War rant he bad a death War rant signed in his own Para crowd became subdued and the six men ment the drop the Little fellow took lazed by the sight of the casualty the was quite pronounced. It was a Clear fall of some Sirteen or eighteen feet. Luckily the lad had taken hold of the hear end rail of the caboose and in at the Home of the Bride s or. And mrs. Clark on West Locust where an elegant wedding break fast was served. Or. And mrs. Keating left for Burlington on the at. J. And their return will take up their residence on West third Street. A disappointed Vendor. Found More demand for Silver than Gold retrospect. At the big Republican picnic at plan Neo s Grove last week there was an enterprising gentleman who Laid in a Stock of Gold bugs to sell of the thinking of course that he would find a big Sale for them. Greatly to his Surprise to got More request s for Silver emblems than for the Gold bugs. Although the picnic was under Republican hundreds of Bryan voters joined in the for not politics Sake. As they All wanted Silver emblems the in Der in qty Stion was greatly Eha gained because he had not thought of bringing along a Supply of the White Metal symbols. In this connection it May be remarked that it is rather Odd to an Iowa Republican wearing a j Gold Bug. Gold bugis was declared by he Republican National convention at mint Apo lib contrary both to the edition and interest of the american la 1sss the Republican National platform Republican party is favor of the use of both Gold and Silver As Money and condemns the policy of the in its efforts to Demone time after exalting by Metallis in 1s91. And denouncing discrimination against Silver As Standard Money in it is no wonder that few Iowa republicans care to Wear a Gold Bug in 1896. Out in the late Republican state convention in Des Moines it is that Gold Bug vendors found comparatively although the Republican presidential nominee is bound nand and foot to a Gold Bug policy. It is Safe to say that if. The Issue be tween of the single Gold Standard and by Metallis were left to an unbiased vote of republicans and divested of its party by Metai list would receive tin vote of three fourths of. The republicans of the uni Ted states. Unfortunately the Issue is now projected into party and thousands of men who would not Wear a Gold Bug this year or any other will do far vote for fastening the in of Standard policy upon the country for four years longer. The great popularity of Ayer s pills is due to their Universal usefulness and their Freedom from All injurious ingredients. The Bastian premises.
