ONE CENTABSCONDID! \1* WtnMiii Xfuitg«r of tko Cin* ^ tiBUti CoBBierfUil lgenej> Sklpi^, f ftmwltw ft»r « C(Muidor»ble Amount. VmbIIj Injra Bp la fa Ballefontalaa, Ohio, Sick. Bu»ine«s clrelet on Third street were very much agitated thla morning by the diacoTery . of the fact that P. R. Waiman, manager of tte Cincinnati Commercial agency, had die* Mpeored myetertouely, leaving no traces be* Mnd him. It was supposed that Warman Was a defaulter, hat to what extent could notke ookjootured. Mr. Warman was a leading member of the Fimt Baptist Church of this city, and Super intendent of the Sunday*school, but he was never known to lead in prayer, as was stated ip SM of the papers this morning. He was a prominent temperance man and played the oifin in the W. C. T. U. meetings at Smith & Hixott’s Hall, and also prominent in church matteia. Mr. Wmaa lived with his famUy at No. II Weslsy avenue, in a respectable mansion, andthisiMVttingaNxws reporter was sent tp the konss to make soiáe inquiries as to Mr. WiMiai's wksrsabonts. He met st the door SÜV1BI, who, on the flrst question iáM, **Boes Mr. Wsnnan live herer^ at* tm^lsd to lAut the dooir iff the iwpoittr’s Mmfc TktpsÉsU skovsr conciliated ths old MB l^aMteg that a particulac Wend of the fMlty woaM like to know sometbJog about Mi. WkhBaa. The servant went below, and presenUy rstuned to the door with a young lady, who, in response to various inquiries, saidr ‘♦Mr. Warman Is very Hi. He has been tery sick, and has gone to jhe house of a fHend in Bdlefontalne, Ohio. The lady denied having seen the article in the morning papsn about Mr. Warman, and said she did not know any thing about his business affairs. Warman of late was noticed to act very queerly. Be would sit at his desk with his hsnd buried in bis hands and looking very dsspondont. When asked by hisemfdoyes for information he would say he was too busy, or give some other evasive answer. They made up their minds that be was losing his miad, and sven Mrs. Warman made the sug guestion that he ought to be sent to an asy lum. It now appears that Warman was heavily indebted to a au ul>er of his patrons. Frank humstein was sini<?k for |2,iW0, the Metropoi itan National Bank |50P, and First Baptist Church 13,000, besides amounts to numerous to mention to other parties. * Warman is about fltty-four years of age, sallow complexion, quite tall, medium wdght, wore a gray goat*}^ aud hair and •ported a silk hat. Seven attachments upon tbs property and , flxtures of the Commercial agenoy were Issued this morning by ’9(]tilre Bright and •srved by Constable Qass, who put William Dowling in clutrge of the property at the southwest center of Fourth and Walnut. The claJiDH are as ^lowsr Bpeneer A Craig, prUittug, WT.M; Wm. Tujnman, attorneys flees, $MOt ki:. MUler, rant of oMce, |0.88; M. M. Loim, stngHi, |A0| Henry Keodall, wages,! ISO} RJC.

WatMiHiihhiMiMc wsfon a half-brother of the absconded manager, and has an Invalid father and mother dependent upon him in this city for support. The situs-tion for the young man is a very trying one. P. R. Warman was also the General Manager of the Ohio Mutual Health and Accident Insurance Company, of which Thos. B. Paxton is President; C. A. Withers, Vice-Presi-dent; Wm. Means, Treasurer, and Thomas Porter, Jun., Secretary. This company was o^anized June 28, 1887, under the laws of Ohio, and thus far has had a very precarious existence. Frank Zumstein, who got stock for $2,600, is a son-in-law of Warman, and one of the Incorporators of the Commercial Agency, which was organized a few months ago under the laws of Kentucky.lOFl. Labors of the MlnnenpoUs Convention Fenuelhlly Cloolnff. Bailey and Barry Will Be Allowed to Ssrvs Their Tine Minkkapous, October 19.—The K. of L. Convention is about coming to a close and peace between contending factions reigns at Warsaw. A report from the Committee ou Strikes and Boycotts preferring charges against Park Brothers Black Diamond Steel Works, of Pittsburg; Perry A White, broom manufacturers, of Urbano, Ohio, and the American Tube and Iron Works, <«r Youngstown, Ohio, were relbrred to the Sxecutive Buurd with power to act. An amendment to the constitution was adopted making it compulsory on all locals to attach or become attached to a State, District or National Trades’ Assembly. It was decided that hereafter the Committee on Credentials meet two days before the opening of the General Assembly, instead of four; that all contests should be In twenty days to secure attention, and that hereafter the mileage of delegates should be fixed at four cents per mile. .lust as the Assembly wal about to take a recess for dinner a large and elegantly framed portrait of the General Master Work man was brought in, and in a feeling speech Mrs. Leonora Barry entrusted It to Mr. Pow-derly’s care as a present from the Assembly to his wife. Mr. Powderly endeavored to re* spond, but after standing for several moments was compelled by the rush of emotion to sit down without saying a word, and General Secretar)' Lifehman made an apprq)riate speech of thanks in his stead. It is now settled that Barry and Bailey will remain on the Board for another year. A resolution had been presented that the two men in refusing to tender their resignations had forfeited the confidence of the Assembly, but it was unanimously rejected. An expression of sympothy was voted the striking employes of the New York Brass Works, and they were authorized to appeal to the Order at large for assistance. A clause was added to the constitution by which a District Assembly covering an entire btate may by a simple resolution become a Btate Assembly. It was also made compul-sory for the General Executive Board to iMue a charier for a National Trades Assembly when the local Assefnblle* desiring it comply with the law. It was decided that the rule making it compulsory fbr Assemblies to maintain an assistance fhnd should Ik* droppe<l. The ImlUnapolIs Pentlnel and Journal were boycotted for having discharged all the employes connected with the Knights of Labor and the Typograpival Union and rofuslog to take tlMim back when requested.

Faneral Orations in the Third Wsrd. The unreliability of the Commercial Gazette’s accounts of Republican meetings is strikingly seen in its report of last night’s meeting la the Third Ward, at Sycamore and Liberty. Several weeks ago the Republican “bread and butter” brigade of this ward organized a club, and Ibr two weeks heralded the meeting of last night, announcing such heavy gtVM an Ben Butterworth, General Brown, .John Fehrenbatch and others. This is the home of that “poor young man,” Law Bulletin Topp, Coroner Rendigs, Commissioner Goesiing and a score of other oiBce-holders. The Commercial Gazette speaks of the meeting as “very largely attended” and ripe with enthusiasm. The fact Is it was the most miseraUe fizzle of the campaign so far. There were not more than 160 people present, al-K^ugh there was an extravagant illumination of the stage, bonfires and a brass band to attract the crowd which did not come. . It was notioeaM*» tkat ther^as an entire lack of enthusiasm in the aud|^ce, the only time it applauded being at the close of a song by the Tenth Ward Glee Club. Even the speakers, notably. Ben Butterworth were struck with the apath.NI^nd inditferonce of the crowd, and their speeches were more in the nature of funeral orations. It was a sad disap))ointment to the Republicans. They hftd expected to stir up the Third Ward, but the people of this ward have no use fbr the boodle gang that runs the Republican machine in that bailiwick, and are by the bun* dieds leaviqg the Ben Butterworth Know-Nothing party for Union Labor—the party of priocipleflb While Ben Butterworth was speaking a number of Gcrmao and Irish citizens were overiieard to condemn In quiet discussion the radical Know-Nothing sentiments and opposition to organized labor that have made Ben Butterworth conspicuous since his Music Hall address of last May. Ben Butterworth appeared to recognize that he stands in bad odor among bis German fellow-cltlzoni. “Why,” said he, ♦♦when the late Garfield, our lamented hero, was alive he would ofu*n ask me; ‘Ben, how is the outlook over the Rhinei* What should I say to him to-night if bis spirit should appear.” There, were several in the audience who bad read the Nxws of yestenlay and said to themselves no doubt wc can easily snswer Ben BulterwertU» 8ny to the spirit of Garfield that Bon Butterwwth has insulted sll his Ibrelgn-born friends. 'I’htl Ben Butterworth has denounce organlzoil labor as conspiracy, and tlmt the brave, noblo ideas o-^ihMÍnNmf been spiirned by Butterworth. «♦Over the Kbine” will Oils time repudiate the Rig^bUcan party and Ben Butterworth by an overwhelming Union Lalwr mojority. - - -   • —AltenburgiT and Vail, of Wapakoneta, Ohio, hami'SS’maketii, made an assignment ysskvnl»y.

Harrison May, c<fiored laborer, working fat Peter and Bcully in the sewer being built ia Glenway avenue, Clifton, was caught in a cave about five o’clock yesterday afternoon. At the time of the accident May was in tha sewer, which had reached a d^Hh of eightaea feet. Tvro scaffolds had been erected. May would shovel the dirt to the flrst scaffold, another man would threw it to a second, and then it would be loosed out of the hole. It was just at five o’clock when the men on the scaffolds noticed the walls beginniaf to cave. They climbed out os fast as possible, calling to May to follow them. The men on the scaffolds got out, and May had rsaehed the first platform, when the earth gave way, completely covering the unfortunate man. It is estimated that fully fifteen feet of earth covered the man. The alarm was given, and assistance soon arrived. The appalling news spread like wildfire, and soon aorewdas-^ sembled. Men with shovels went to woik with a will to rescue May, but, owing to the condition of the earth, hut little progrens wan gained. The work was continued, however, and at three o’clock this morning the crushed and suffocated victim was reached. The patrol wagon took the remains to the Morgu»- .    * THE 8VGAH TBUNÍT. ll All Armaments Sold toiBe rvass. Completed.
