The state Convention.

The Republican State Oommitte met

in the Fifth Avonuo Hotel Wednesday.

We clip the report of proceedings for the

,Snu. Many Republican politicians,

most of whom were Stalwarts, crowded

the corridors of the hotel before the

HUM-1 in," and talked earnestly with the

members of the committee. Among

thorn were Congressmen Richard Crowley,

ex-Attorney-General Hamilton Ward,

Gen. John N. Knapp, of Auburn, John

R. Lydocker, ex-Collector Thomas Murphy,

ex-Senator Birdsal, Police Commissioner

Stephen B. Fronoh, Dr. Smith,

Health Officer of the Port of New York;

ex-Lieut.-Gov. John C. Robinson, ox-

United States Marshall Louis F. Payn,

John J. O'Brien, Bernard Biglin, and

Henry C. Porley. The committee was

called to order by B. PJatt Carpenter,

the Chairman, at noon.

The first business done was to fix a

day for the Republican State Convention.

Mr. Daggett moved that it bo

hold on Sept 13, and Mr. Smart, of

Washington County moved that Sept. 27

bo the |day. At Collocter Robertson s

suggestion, Mr. Smart changed the date

named in his motion to Sept. 20. This

amendment was carried by 18 to 14.

The committeemen voting for it were

Messrs. Hicks, Van Wyck, Wheeler,

Van Cott, McClave, Cregau, Piatt,

Robertson, Tompkins, Teal, Smyth,

SmuiHi, Curtis, Jarvis, Parsons, Low,

Warren, and Ingorsoll. Those who voted

in the negative were Messrs. Daggett,

Hobbs, Patterson, Carpenter, Stover,

Ray, Vroomau, Sayre, Chamberlain,

Parkhurst, and the suhstitutes for

Messrs. Lcaycraft, Williams, Mason, and

Bcmis.

Tho roll was then called, and each

member named a place for the Convention.

Messrs. Hicks, Daggett, Hobbs,

Patterson, Robertson, Carpenter, Tomkins,

Curtis, Stover, Ray, Vroomau,

Sayre, Chamberlain, and tho substitutes

for Messrs. Lcaycraft, WilliamB, Mason,

and Rem is voted for Saratoga. Messrs.

Van Wyck, Wheeler, Van Cott, Mc-

Cluro, Cregau, Piatt, Teal, Smyth,

Stuart, Jarvis, Parsons, aud Warren voted

for Syracuse, aud Messrs. Parkhurst,

Low, aud Iugersoll named Rochester.

Tho Chairman declared that the Convention

would bo held in Saratoga, on

Sept. 20, at 11 a. m. Tho formal call

for tho Convention requests all Republicans

in each Assembly District in the

State to oloct tho number of delegates to

which their respective districts are entitled.

Tho whole number of delegates

is 40(5. New York County is to send 79,

and bines County 40.

Just before committee adjourned Mr.

Do Witt C. Wheeler moved that tho

State Committee pay to Gen. N. M.

Curtis the expenses of his defence in his

recent trial for collecting political assessments

from Federal officers in 1881. Mr.

Wheeler urged the passage of his motion

on tho ground that what Gen. Curtis did

was done in his capacity of Treasurer of

the State Committee. The motion was

carried, and the committee adjourned.

At the meeting of the Executive Committee

Chairman Curpeutcr, Secretary

Vroomau, and Jacob M. Patterson, Jr.,

were appointed a committee to audit the

General's bill. Ex-Sheriff Daggett, of

Kings County, moved that the General

be paid $1,000, and that balance of his

bill be referred to the committee named

in the prior motion. Mr. Daggett's motion

was carried.

The politicians do not agree as to the

significance of the votes in the State

Committee. The Stalwart Republicans

and the Half Breeds who are opposed to

Gov. Cornell's reuominatiou claimed that

the naming of a late day for the Convention

was u blow to the Governor, as both

ho and his friends were anxious to have

the Convention held early in September.

The friends of the Governor on tlio other

hand, said that the selection of Saratoga

for the Convention was a victory, as the

Governor preferred that place, aud his

opjioneuts favored Sy racuse. They regarded

the result in the committee as u

drawn battle, and predicted thut the

Governor would l>e renominated. They

admitted, however, that the contest in

tlio convention would be hard and bitter.

Half Breeds spoke of Congressman

Lake Mahopac

At 3 o'clock on Saturday morning last

au altercation ensued between Mr.

Louis Ballard and Mr. Joseph G. Cole.

On Monday at 3:35 p. m. Mr. Ballard

died. Mr. Cole, writh his son Otto, who

was also engaged in the affray, surren­

dered thomselvos to tho sheriff tho samo

evening. Coroner Beed, of Brewstera,

WAS notified. He went to Lake Maho­

pac, took charge of tho body of tho de­

ceased and thero impannelled A jury

composed of the following named gentle­

men : B. T. Crane, N. M. Crane, Ira

Crane, S. W. CArver, F. O, Bivin, B. R.

Brady.

The jury began to inquire AS to the

manner of Mr. Ballard's death OU Tues­

day. Albert Williams, A farm hand

employed by the deceased, was tho first

witness sworn. He is nineteen years

of Ago. It appears from his testimony

thnt Ballard yoked the oxen early Satur­

day morning, wont down near Colo's

house And hitched A chain Around A post for

tho purpose of pulling it up. Before tho

job WAS completed Mr. Joseph Colo ap­

peared And Asked Ballard what ho WAS

going to do, accompanying his interro-

gat ion by giving his early caller A sound

thrashing with A horse-whip. Ballard

nlso had A whip And did what he could

iu the way of lashing Mr. Cole. The

two men then clinched and After A

souffle fell to tho ground. Cole WAS on

top And followed '.p bis advantage by

thumping Ballard in tho ribs, rubbing

dirt in his eyes, and dashing his hoad

against tho ground. Bullard had no

sooner regained his foet than Otto went

at him with a horse whip. Witness en­

deavored to induce Ballard to return

but he did not propose to give up tho

fight, or leave his oxon hitched to the

post. Thero WAS more horse-whipping,

during which Ballard fell down. He

then demanded his oxen. Cole refused.

Ballard went to his barn, armed himself

with A shovel handle, And returned to

where the oxon were hitched. Otto

Cole WAS guarding them and received A

blow from tho shovel handle. A moment

later he had wrested the olub from

Ballard's grasp. Ballard was uow quite

weak. He did uot want to give up the

fight, but tho witness and another man

forced him to go home. When Ballard

urn veil in the house ho Appeared AS well

as eon Id bo expected; going about his

duties as usual. Fifteen minutes later

he had fallen iuto an unconscious state

aud so remained until his death. Wil­

liams says Colo acted like a wild man.

Michael Donner, a blacksmith, 48

years, tells what he saw of the affray,

but his story does not differ materially

from tho testimony of Williams. Ou

Wednesday tho coroner's inquest was

adjourned to Saturday when tho inquest

will bo resumed by taking the testimony

of tho five physicians, who aro now en­

gaged iu cutting up Mr. Ballard's body

for the purpo.se of ascertuiuiug tho cause

of his death. The physicians so engag­

ed are Profs. Welch and Allen of Bel-

levue Hospital, Drs. Adams uud La-

Monte, of Carmel, and Dr. Card, a

young physiciuu who bus recently open­

ed practice ut tho Luke.

A Correspondent of the New York

San writes us follows :

" Thero has boon a feud for two years

between Louis Ballard, a wealthy resi­

dent of Vlinkers, and J. U. Cole, pro­

prietor of the Colo House here. It

sprung from u dispute over boundary

linos. Bullurd claimed control over a

road used by Colo's boarders in going to

town. Ho felled trees across tho road

and fenced it in. Last season it was

charged thut ho insulted severul of tho

ladies ut Colo's, uud there wus a f rue us

between him uud Colo's son and bond­

ers. This summer tho quarrel wus re­

vived.

"Last Suturduy morning ut 3 o'clock

Mr. Bullurd drove up u team of oxen to

Colo's fouee, which ho elauiied wus ou

his own luud, und begun to drag up the

posts. Colo heard him, and come out

w ith u horsewhip in his bund. A figh t

ensued. Cole laid the whip uround

Bullurd's legs. While in the act of un­

hitching the oxen Cole wus struck on the

head with u club by Bullurd, whereupon

he threw- Bullard down, but wus pulled

off by Cole's sou. Bullurd, who wus 75

yours old, struck Cole, the young uiun,

with u upudo bundle. Colo rotaliutod by

knocking him down. Thoy wore finully

separated by Mr. Jiullurd's negro bcrv-

uut aud another inun, aud tho old uiun

wus led uw ay, stoutly rosistiug.

" lie declared thut ho would renew

tho struggle by daylight, but upon

reuchiug his bouse fainted. Ho grow

delirious, uud on Monday morning he

died. The (3oles were arrested junmedi-

utely, charged with ussuult with intent

to murder, and hold without buil, but

[ correspondence of the Evening rost.]

BOSTON, August 1, 1882.

A more satisfied company of men than

the officers of tho Now York and Now

England Railroad, Bitting at their desks

at the close of this day's business, it

would not bo easy to find. To-day's re-

oeipts have been tho largest of any day

in the history of tho road—$40,510.70.

Tho cash receipts for July were $708,-

430.44, probably tho largest for any

month sinoo the road was built Those

aro tlie gross receipts, And not earnings,

and only A little over half belongs to tho

road, tho remainder being duo to other

roads which connect with it But tho

groat transaction of tho dny IIAS been in

tho old Berdell bonds of tho extinct

Boston, Hsrtford And Erie road. By

tho terms of tho incorporation of tho

New York and New England road as tho

suocossor of the Boston, Hartford and

Erie, the Berdell bonds could bo ex­

changed for tho stock of tho now road.

By tho terms of this year's legislation

Authorising the BAIO of tho 34,750 shores

of the roAd which were owned by tho

State, tho stockholders of record on

August 1 hsve tho right to subscribe

pro rata. This gives tho Berdell bond­

holders tho right to convert their bonds

into stock, and become jtro rata owners

of the stock bought from the Slate.

The law fixes the selling price nt $50 on

tho pAT of $100 A share, and AS the

market value hns boon $58 within A fow

days, though it is lower to-dsy, thero is

grent eagerness to get tlie State stock.

There Are 20,000 Berdell bonds of $1,000

each, And of these there hod been con­

verted into stock nt tho close of businoss

to-day (this being the last opportunity

for conversion) 16,268 bonds, leaving

only 3,742 outstanding. Some of those

hove doubtless been lost or destroyed,

and will nevor bo presented for redemp­

tion. As already noted, tho rond has

turned over to tho State tho second

mortage bonds required in payment of

tho 34,750 shares of State stock, und

thnt transaction is complete. A conse­

quence of to-day's business is likely to

be inert used permanent activity in tho

stock sales of tho road, AS SO much moro

will be available for market

But the general outlook of tho road is

of as much interest as tho remarkable

transactions of to-day. Its traffic re­

turns for this year show an increase of

about twenty-five per cent on the

Averogo over the returns of the last

annual report dated December C. The

New York and New England road has

now direct connect ions with tho Erie

system at Newburg, with the Pennsyl­

vania road at Jersey City, and with tho

Baltimore and Ohio; and it has recently

arranged to connect with the Chesapeake

and Ohio nud with the East Tennessee,

Virginia and (icorgia fast freight lines.

It has connection with all lines entering

New England, except the New York

Central, and u connection with that is

being put in at Fishkill, and 6omo busi­

ness will probably bo obtained in that

way. The officers beliovo that they do

as much business as any road iu New

England, except tho Boston and Albany

and possibly tho Eastern, whoso local

traffic is large. Receipts of ears from

tho Erie road, and tho numbers of cars

engaged in the hard coal business, have

increased beyond all expectations. To­

day thero aro 500 cars building west of

tho Hudson for use on this lino, aud the

Erie, Delaware and Hudson, aud Penn­

sylvania Coal Company aro called upon

to build more cars. The new steamer

Hart, at Fishkill, cau transport across

the Hudson 500 cars daily. Twenty

now engines ore building, and three have

been delivered and the others will come

within forty days. All aro large engines.

They mcludo eight consolidation engines,

six moguls, two large passenger cugiues,

and four largo switching engines.

Grain freights are just beginning to come

forward and to fill tho elevators. The

new elevator on tho South Boston flats

has a capacity of ;ooi I.DDII bushels, and

hhips can bo loaded from it without

changing position after they come te

dock. The Inter-Colonial Ruilwuy, after

examining all tho terminal facilities of

tho eastern cities, fixed upon those of

tho New York and New Euglund rond

us best, and is having its own built

similarly. Passenger business, us well

us freight, is also thriving. A demand

is reported for quick trains over the Now

York aud Boston Air Line, a part of

which is made up of some of this com­

pany's tracks, for it is only 214 miles

long, or twenty miles shorter thuu any

other route.

Tho road is prosperous, finonciiUly,

and is taking much money just now.

Tho Norwich aud Worcester line, operat­

ed by the Now York uud New Kugluud,

will have] a surplus of about $22,001)

above expenses for tho lust six months,

which is better thou it usually does.

Speaking of the prospective earnings of

tho present your, one of the officers said

thoy would probably net $1,000,000.

Within thirty or forty duys tho puyuieut

of a judgment of $05,000 against tlie city

of Providence, an uccouut of tho Hurt-

ford, Providence, aud Fishkill Koud, is

expected, and about $450,000 from the

Boston und Albany Koad for tho side to

it of tho Brook hue branch. It is probu-

blo thut u spur will be built, so thut the

Woousockot division will lmveils termin­

us at the stution of the company, ni-

steud of thut of the Boston uud Albany

1 to; id, us at present. By the receipt of

money with which to puy for the Stute

stouk und tho issue of second mortguge

bonds to the Stute, the roud will put

about $1,718,750 into the Treasury, and

with other receipts there will be u totul

of ubout $2,350,000 for tho immediute

development of the roud. JJoublc-truck­

ing will be resumed, und within cighteou

mouths Lheie will probubly be u double

track all the way between Jioston aud

Hartford. Some thirty-two milcp have

boon double tracked Out from Boston,

leaving oighty-flvo miles to bo done. A

short rond of four and a half miles will

lie built from Franklin to Bcllinghnm, in

this State. • Direct connection between

Ashland and Providence will probably

be mndo by way of an extension of the

Hopkinton branch. Enlargement of

tho grounds nt Fishkill is under way,

though 300 cars daily can 1w handled

thero now. Coal chutes nnd trestles aro

being built in many places. No float­

ing debt of any kind will exist after

ninety days, and altogether tho rond is

in A strong condition, with bright pros­

pects.

A circulnr will bo issued to-morrow by

the rond stating tho result of tho conver­

sion of the Berdell bonds into stock, and

informing each stockholder what his pro

rata of tho State stock will bo. Four

shares of stock aro necessary to entitle n

holder to buy ono share of tho State

stock, and tho right of ono nharo will be

worth just one-fourth of the premium of

tho stock nl>ovo $50 a share. To-day

stock was sold at $54, and this would

make tho value of rights $1 a shnre.

Assignments of rights can bo mado to

persons who nro stockholders or not, and

on and after to-morrow tho stock market

Will doubtless show quotations of "New

York and New England rights."

Tnov, Aug. 3.—Bnrnum'e show ex­

midnight many residents of tho city

wero treated to au entertainment not

put down in tho bills. Tho evening per­

formance closed nt about 10 o'clock, and

immediate arrangements wero mndo to

transfer tho menngcrio to Gloversvillo.

Tho elephants aud larger animals were

driven down Biver street to tho Rensse­

laer and Saratoga Railroad bridge, with

a view of orossiug tho latter to tako cars

on Green Island for Glovcrsville. The

camels, Jumbo, aud several other ele­

phants tiled iuto the bridge all right;

but ono of the largo elephants, known ns

tho Emporcr, became unruly, nud mani­

fested a disposition to continue down tho

street. Tho attendants sought to coax

him over, but the moro ho was coaxod

tho moro obstinate ho became, and ho

finally mado a bolt down River street.

Three other elephants followed his ex­

ample. Tho trouble had already at­

tracted a largo crowd of men and boys,

whose mingled cries at the beasts only

infuriated them, and they started down

through tho ceutro of tho city at full

speed. At Adams street Emperor fell,

and was Boon surrounded. Raising him­

self suddenly ho espied tho bright lights

burning iu tho Hon. Erastus Coming's

llenesselacr Rail Mill, and ho mado that

his objective point. Tho other elephants

followed. Emperor entered the mill,

causing a stampede of the omployees.

In his anxiety to escape his pursuers ho

stepped into tho hot blooms, and his

forefeet wero terribly burned.

Gonded to madness with pain, the elo-

pliant rushed from tho mill ou to the

Hudson River Railroad track, and,

reaching Jefferson street, he took tho

sidewalk, Mr. nud Mrs. Michuel Casey

were on the sidewalk, and wero so sur­

prised at tho strange sight of tui ele­

phant running a 1 , largo that they lost

thoir presence of mind. As u result,

Casey was knocked down nnd badly

hurt. Turning into First street, Emper­

or met Patrick Maher, who was return­

ing from work, aud throw him with

great force down on embankment. Tho

elephant next encountered Edward

Burke, aud injured him very seriously

by a blow with his trunk. Eurperor

thon took tho sidewalk, but, owini; to

tho lateness of tho hour, did not meet

any ono until ho reached Van Bureu

street, whero ho seized Patrick Burns

and threw him about twenty feet. In

Tyler street Emporor hurled Michael

.M i nn him against a fence, breaking three

of his ribs. Miuahau is G5 years old,

and it is probable ho will die. Before

reaching tho Fourth street junction

several other persons wero hurt. Mr.

aud Mrs. Putrick Moulton wero seated

on tho stoop of their residence us Em-

purer hove in sight, and they remained

there te see v. hat wus tho mutter. As

Einperor upprouched tho house Moulton

seized u pail and struck tho brute.

Whereupon Emperor turned, and, seiz­

ing Mrs. Moultiou, threw her with great

force uguiust the wull iu tho house, ser­

iously injuring her. Mr. Moulteu was

knocked seubek-ss by u blow of tho ani­

mal's trunk and his collar bono was

broken. John Koaike, who lived neur

by, wus drunk enough to suppose thut

he could quiet tho elephunt, uud us a re­

sult his right foot was crushed by Em­

peror beading upon it.

The elephant then turned iuto Fourth

street where ho kuoeked Jeremiah Bur-

low iu u-nsible, threw Wm. H. Burke

down u steep bun , uud sent John

O'Marra ubout flifteeu feet into tho air.

Then ho made for the Bessimer Steel

Works, being uttrueted thither by tho

electric ligh. Heiueuibcriug his exper­

ience at the licusscluer Mill, Emperor

did not seek an iutimute ucquuiutuuco

with the red hot steel blooms. In fact

the sight of them euused him to turn,

uud so Iran tie wus he thut ho run uguiust

u fence, knocking it to pieces. Turning

iuto tho sbeet uguiu, u peddler's wugou

The Old Bcffffnr's Lcjr/nc.v.

Mrs. BtfflO and Mrs. Burton lived n< xt

door to ctich other. Tho Burton's was

nlwttys the model of nn inviting lionso,

the windows clean, the little flower pots

in front neatly kept. The Sim's on tho

other hand, looked neglect'tl and dirty.

The little border wns_nnl--nded, and tilt)

rose Imshes were broken and dest royed.

Tho children of the two mothers dis­

played tho same chaacteristic features.

Ella Burton was a sweet little fairy.

Her bright face and clear blue eyes, her

neatly kept hair and t-potless pinafon

were, n perfect beauty, while her winning

ways made her a favorite in the village.

Lizzie Simo was :. sour looking girl,

with her hair always hanging over her

eyes and shoulders, her face often dirty,

and her pinafore, when she had one, the

same.

One afternoon little Ella was playing

iu tho garden plot in front of the cottage

when she saw a feeble old man walking

along tho road. He was very old and

frail. Long white hair hnng in heavy

ringlets down his back and his dress was

very ragged and dirty.

no leaned heavily on his stick as ho

moved painfnlly along, and, as soon as

he had reached the little wicket gate

leading to Simo's cottage, ho opened it

and staggered weariedly up the path.

««Go away, old man," cried Lizzie

Bime, who was standing at tho door.

«• Mother has nothing to give you."

" Is your mother in ?" asked tho man

faintly.

•• Yes, she's iu, but she wants none of

your kind," said Mrs. Simo, appearing

at the door herself. " So you can just

go away again."

Tho old man turned and left, heavily

and wearily dragging his limbs behind

him ; and Ella, who had been watching

him closely, saw him draw his Bleeve

across his eyo as if ho was wiping away

a tear.

Her little heart was touched with

sympathy ; she ran and opened the gate

leading to her mother's cottago as ho

slowly approached. 'Then, taking his

hand, she led him up the path, saying as

she did so :

' Poor old mau, come and rest awhilo

on our garden scat, and mother will

bring you something."

41 God bless you, my little angel,"

muttered tho beggar fervcutly, as ho

sank down on tho seat, while Ella ran to

bring her mother.

The poor old man was ill very ill; but

after ho had partaken of some nice

bread and butter and a bowl of rich

sweet milk, ho said he must be leaving

again.

" For," he continued " I have a mis­

sion to perforin. My wife's remains lie

iu the grave-yard youder, Thirty years

have they lain there ; and, after much

wandering, I have oomo for tho last time

to visit her grave, aud, perhaps, to die

near her."

"Would you carry a flower with

you ?" asked little Ella. "I will pluck

one."

" Heaven bless you, child, yon havo

spoken my heart's desire. It was that

rather than food I wished to beg."

In the evening somo of the villagers

saw the old man kueeliug on a plot in

the "stranger's comer" of the grave­

yard, but no particular notice; was taken

of him. Next morning when tho grave-

digger went to perform some of his

duties he was surprised to find him still

there. No ; it was his body only ; the

old man was dead. On his wife's grave

he yielded up his life. Ella's buuch of

flowers had been carefully placed nt the

head of the grave—the last tribute of

love—and in the lieggnrVhand.was found

a bit of paper with tho following words

written on it iu a shaky, almost illegible

hand:

" I know tho end has come. Please

bury mo whose I lie, beside my wife *s

grave. William Joy, tho banker, will

give money to pay all expenses. I have

but oue legacy to moke. To the dear

child who, in my extremity, gave me

the llower to place on Ellen's grave, I

give the old coat I weur. When she

rips up the scams sho may find it use­

ful."

And M-hat, think you, did Eila's moth­

er liud in the old coat ? Why, bundles

of bank notes stitched under the lining

—amounting to several hundreds of

dollars, which the old man had saved

and hoarded.

You can imagiuo tho rago and envy of

the Sines when they learned what they

hod lost by their refusal to do a kind

act, aud what the liurtous had gained by

performing one.
