republicans with the populists. Other
Permanent organization was not
effected until late in the afternoon. A
fight was soon sprung over a state
ticket. One faction wanted to endorse
the populist ticket, a second faction in
sisted on putting out a straight repub

vored letting members of the party
do as they pleased about voting for
candidates. After many speeches and
much confusion it was resolved not to
put out a republican ticket. Then the
proposition to endorse the populist can

however, were put on notice that they

Valuable Property Id Rome Claimed by
Rome, Ga.. August 30. —A suit was
filed in the county clerk's office yester
day afternoon that involves over SIOO,OOO
worth of the most valuable property in

vert to the heirs at his .death. The
property involved is the magnifieant
home of Captain L. Lyle on the out
skirts of the city, the Masonic temple

Between the Capital of the North
anti West ami the Rich Fields
of the Sunny South.
Washington, August SO. —Every-
thing is in readiness for the opening to
day of the southern development con
vention. Most of the delegates are al
ready on the scene. This convention
seeks to crystalize into action a com
mon thought of the south and to
evolve some plan of united action on the
part of the representatives of every
southern state. The hope is indulged
that it will result in the establishment
of a permanent exhibit of southern re
sources at the national eapitol, with an
auxiliary bureau in which the various
investments eligible to elicit capital may
be recorded, prospect uses filed, with
endorsements from trustworthy sources
and thus a reliable medium he estab

largely centering in Washington) and
the rich fields for development in the
south. Among the more important

Invited to Meet a Committee.
New York, August 30.—Gustav 11.
Schwab, chairman of the committee of
three members of the Chamber of Com

spective of party, to be held at Madi
son Square Concert Hall, on Thursday,
September 6, at Bp. m.” The other
members of the committee are W. E.
Dodge and Hugh N. Camp. Following
is the call:
“This meeting - is called to consult
as to the wisdom and practicability of
taking advantage of the present state
of public feeling, to organize a citizens’
movement for the- government of the
city of New York entirety*. outside of
party politics and surety uft the inter
ests of efficiency, economy and the pub
lic health, comfort and safety.
“It is believed that the people of the
city are tired of the burden of inef
ficiency, extravagancy and plunder,
and understand that a city, like a well
ordered household, should be managed
sorely in the best interests of its peo
ple, and to this end should be entirety
divorced from party politics and selfish
personal ambition or gain.”
RACE WAR IN CAROLINA.
Negroes Incensed in Consequence of the
Arrest of Others of Their Color.
Columbia, S. C. August 30.—A race,
riot is imminent at Harlin City, a small
town in Orangeburg county. Governor
Tillman has ordered tht Santee Rifles
of that county to put themselves at the
disposal of Trial Justice O. B. Whetsell.
The negroes in that section have form
ed a combination not to pick cotton for
less than fifty cents a hundred for
white farmers, and forty cents for col
ored farmers. An old negro who vio
lated this agreement and picked for a
white man for forty cents per hundred
was taken out of his house by a mob of
negroes Tuesday night and severely
beaten. Several negroes were arrested
for the erime, and this undoubtedly in
censed the negroes. Ow-ing to the poor
telegraph facilities there, nothing fur
ther could be learned. The presence of
a military company would quickly put
down any trouble, however, without

Two of the New Bedford Mills Accede to
Their Wishes—Others May Follow.
New Bedford, Mass.. August 30.—The
strike situation remains practically un
changed. and little excitement attended
the opening of the Bennett and Colum
bia mills. ' The stirring speeches made
on the common have not made the
manufacturers in a very easy state of
mind, although they refuse to have
anything to say in reply to any of
these meetings. The operatives have a
more hopeful feeling since the mana
gers of the Bennett and Columbia have
given in to their demands.

letter to Representative Catching. Rep
resentative Sperry, of Connecticut,

to the president's letter to Mr. Wilson
it is a measure permeated with perfidy
Representative Johnson, (Ohio) —“The

unqualified approval from all true

Against removal,of the Diseased.
Milwaukee, Wis., August 80.—South
side polish and low german districts
are now in the possession of a howl
ing mob. City Health Commissioner
Kempster has dropped all effort to
control the situation there and the state
board of health will declare a quaran
tine on the infected district, to be strict
ly enforced by stretching a cordon of
state troops around it. This is a plan
that has heretofore been discussed and
tacitly agreed on as an emergency re
sort. The south side mob are driving
the guards away from houses quaran
tined by the health department and
defy the authorities to take any more
patience to the isolation hospital which
they say is so badly managed that near
ly half the patients taken there die
within a week.
Fifteen new cases are reported today,
all from the riotous district and the
reckless exposure of hundreds of per
sons to the disease during’ the riots of
yesterday and today will add scores
more to the sick list within a week.
