St. Loris, .Inly -I-—There eaiue near
being " lynchiuir at Tweuty-Second
und Clark avenue yesterday afternoon
about 4:3')o'eloek. A mob of infuriated
brewers from (iroue's brewery had Lee
Johnson, about ;j" years of a^e, bound
in ti e yard in the reur of 214 South
Twenty-Second street, and were pre-
paring to drag him with a rope around
iiis neck to a telegraph pole, wlieu of-
ficers rescued hint. Johnson, it is
charged, enticed llcriiiuuu's four-year-
old child, Maggie, into an outbuilding.
The screams of the child attracted
Mrs. Hermann's attention, aud she ran
from the house to the outbuilding.
Finding the door locked and the child
screaming inside, she called to her
husband, whom she saw at the brewery.
Hermann and about other I rcwery
workers responded promptly They
broke in the door and the sight which
met their eyes frenzied t lie in. The
prisoner was afterwards lodged in the
calaboose aud the child was taken by
her father to the dispensary, where
l)r. Kearney pronounced her uninjured.

A man was seen running away from

gates an t candidates began to arrive
in this city this morning for the re-
publican state convention. The early
trains brought iu lion. B B. Cahoon,
of Frederick tow u; .Secretary tSritTen;
B. I . Uussell. sergeaut-at-ai ins of the
national house; Webster Davis, of Kan-

lion. Joseph B. I'pton, of Bolivar;
Judge Lurk holder, of Trentou; J udge
Wallace. Moore and Judge Nixon,
of Lebanon: W 1«\ Saunders, manager
for Mayor Walbridge.
Davis concedes that Cahoon will re-
ceive the most votes on the tirst ballot,
but that lie will tc greatly strength-
ened on the seeoud aud nominated on
the third. The claims of Upton are
very larje. He stated that he would
receive l.'iO votes on the tirst ballot, 7
of whom are Fillev men, but he can
hold them ami it will be impossible
for Filley to nominate a tuau without
the T.'i votes.
There is already bad blood between
the local committee on arrangements
ami Albert Grittiu, secretary of the
state central committee, over admis-
sions to the convention hall. The lo-
cal committee hired the theater and
made arrangements for tickets of ad-
mission. Its members supposed that
they would have a hand in distribut-
ing them. When Griflin arrived he
had a full supply of tickets, badirus
aud press badges in his valise.
Mr. Grillln indicated to the committee
very Soon after he arrived that he
would take entire charge of their dis-
tribution The committeedld not take
kindly to the proposition and one of
its members declared last night that
they had the hall and expected to keep
it within their control Gr.fllu is
equally determined and says he does
not want another such muddle as there
was in St. Joseph where delegates
were kept out of the convention hall
for hours while committees fought
over the tickets.

that will tend to disintegrate or de-
stroy the people's parly I am perfect-
ly willing to do everything fair and
honorable to unite all the elements
that are opposed to the gold standard
j by a division of the electors, and I
think this can be done without taking
! uny action that would disrupt our par-
I i\ or betray our principles
.1 II Davis, known as "Cyclone,
wlio is here as a delegate from lexas,
gave out the following signed state-
ment last night "In my mind there
■ is no doubt about it. We must and
will make our own platform and noin-
I inatc our own ticket. My idea
I that wo will draw largely from dis-
affected republicans in this campaign.
i The silver democrat will remain con-
I tented in his own party during this
campaign and until 'he party betra\s
him again, which it w ill do sure if the
I party is not completely purged of the
gold men. They have nominated, or
! are going to nominate for congress all
j over the country. The populists be-
lieve it is the Intention of the gold
1 men to work through the democratic
! congressional committee, of which
; Faulkner, of West Virginia, is chair-
man, and which, we understand, is in
j the hands of gold men. To till eon-
1 gress with gold democrats would dc-
i feat a free coinage bill if Mr. Hryan
I should be elected. For these reasons
populists think the cause of free silver
is likely to be defeated anyway Hut
if the democrats are placable enough
to 'condescend their patrician pride
and counsel with us plebeians.' we can
1 then form a union on electors that
will give more votes in the electoral
college than an indorsement of Hryan
ami still leave each party distinct on
its own platform."
Jacob S Coxey, who is a delegate at-
large from Ohio, is not in favor of in-
dorsing or of even taking the course
pursued by a great many of the popu
list leaders and "nominating" instead
of "indorsing" Hryan. He thinks a
straight ticket should be nominated,
but is pusliluir a plan which he says
i will unite the silver vote against the
gold vote. It is to have electors -se-
lected pro rata, according to
i the votes cast by the parties
whose national conventions have
declared for silver That would give
the democrats, the populists and the
prohibitionists each representation in
I several states, lie wants these electors
put ou one ticket. When the electoral
I college meets the highest vote should
name the president and the next high-
est vote the vice president This
would give the populists the vice pres-
I idency if the scheme should be adopted.
I Coxey will press his plan before the
I convention.
Reuben 1 Ki.lh, who lias
famous on account of the lights he
made for the governorship of Aluliamn,
1 said that he did not know what action
| the Alabama delegation will take, but
, f,„. himself he had n,i objection to the
ulnatiou of Hryan, but dill not want
' the populist convention to indorse
■ 1 him. "We do not want to wipe out
our identity, " said lie. Kolb also de-
clared that the populists would want
a part of the electors.
lunutius Donnelly, of Minnesota;
' "Cyclone Ilavis, of Te\a-. Mcllowcll,
, I of Tennessee, and other iniddle-ol-the-

nearly all of last night in T'aiibeneck's
1 room, but further than saving that it
' was agreed that the identity of tin-
party should be preserved, refused to
say what was done.
Senator Itutler, of North Carolina,
' who arrived last night, declared that
' the populists of the south liail long
i fought the democrats and would not
be satisfied with fusion with them
now. lie acknowledged that Hryan
was a strong man, very popular with
