If not nominated he will see that Harrison is rejected. Washington april 20.�?Henry Watter aran s recent article in truth in which he makes it perfectly Plain to himself that Harrison and Blaine Are on the Best of terms and Blaine will not oppose the renomination of his chief has been read with a Good Deal of interest in Washington. While or. Watterson writes with great positiveness there Are several Well informed men Here men who know what goes on behind the Arras to use or. Watterson own expression who take the Liberty of differing with the gifted editor of Tho courier Jour Nal. They do not believe that Blaine and Harrison have reached a working agreement. On the contrary they believe and there is cumulative evidence to prove it that Blaine will either be the candidate or else he will be Able to dictate the nomination. Blaine at the present time is As he has been for the last score of years Tho most interesting personality in Washington. He quite overshadows Harrison. Like his bitterest enemy Tom Reed he is one of those men whom it is impossible not to talk about. Men hated and feared Reed in the last Congress yet they could not help talking about him and even his enemies had a profound admiration for his courage his brilliancy his audacity and his truly Napoleonic gift of being Ablo to Mould men to his purpose. It is the same with Blaine. In these Dull times let three or four politicians get together in the Rotunda of a hotel or any other Public place and in five minutes one of the group will be wanting to know what Blaine is up to what lie Lias said about this or that what he intends to do tomorrow or the next Day. No one asks what Harrison says does or thinks. It is Blaine All the time. And what is or. Blaine doing. Answer that and you May be Able to solve minx. The Riddle of the Spur of or. Blaine were not really the great Man he is one might almost imagine that what Washington Irving said about the famous Router Van twiner would apply to him a there Are two opposite ways by which some Mon make a figure in the world one by talking faster than they think and the other by holding their tongues and not thinking at or. Blaine is certainly holding his Tongue these Day most successfully. Lie shuts himself up in the Library of the old Seward mansion or in his private room at the stat department and it is As impossible to obtain an interview with him As it is with the Czar of All the Russia men who have had business and political relations with him for years who have Laboured unceasingly in his behalf and w to have devoted their time and Money in his cause find the door closed in their faces. Very rarely indeed does a Man stand face to face with the Secretary. The once magnetic and genial Blaine the Man who was As kind and considerate to the Day labourer As he was to the senator whose very presence diffused a warmth and exercised a Subtle fascination this Man has gone and in his place is an exclusive brusque and peevish personage who hides himself from the world and apparently wants no communion with it. What has produced this change Here in Washington three theories Are i zen to account for it. The men who want to follow the White plume in the thickest of the fight and who have that Peculiar veneration for a Leader which Only Conics from having fought under him Mon like Milliken for instance will Tell you that or. Blaine has not changed in the slightest but he is so Busy that it is impossible for him to see every one who Calls. They will Tell you that for every visitor the president has to receive or. Blaine has fio and that should his door swing easily All his time would be taken up in seeing the Mer. Who called simply to have a Chance to shake tile hand of the a greatest living some of ids admirers go oven further and say that himself out of respect to the president. He has voluntarily placed himself in the background so As to Correct the false impression that there is my rivalry Between himself and the president. They must invent something More Pla Sive however if they really want the Public to believe their Story. The second theory represents or. Blaine mentally and physically in a decline with he More conscious than anyone Cise that his Powers arc fast deserting him. Men who exploit this theory will Tell you that or. Blaine has lost his ambitions and his nerve Force that he is Dull and listless and tinged with melancholy. He holds on to office because he will not confess even to himself that he is a Mere Shadow of his former self. This accounts for his seclusion and his desire to Shim the society of his fellow men. This is a pathetic picture. Think of the once Brilliant and aggressive Secretary settling Down into a state of chronic helplessness and finding life a ii or Den. But it is not so pathetic As the third picture which is occasionally presented to us. There was in circulation some time ago a Story which represented an intimate Friend of Long standing calling on the Secretary. This Man had made frequent attempts to see or. Blaine and after Many rebuffs at length succeeded. Feeling that his Long intimacy justified it he kindly yet emphatically told the Secretary that he was making a great mistake in refusing to see his old friends and in keeping himself so secluded or. Blaine listened to what was said with considerable emotion and then with tears standing in Hii eyes lie is alleged to have said something like this a Don t blame me. You and the rest of my friends have accused me of being cold and selfish and forgetful of tile men who once served me. You done to know what i have to contend with. I am absolute a without Power. I can do nothing. That Man Over there and lie threw Bis hand nut in the direction of the White House takes a Delight in ignoring every recommendation i May make. J cannot appoint a Man to the most insignificant consulate without consulting Harrison and the chances Are that the Man i recommend will be put to one Side to make a place for some one from Indiana. This is tiie reason wily i done to want to see former friends to whom i Arn unable to explain my position and who think that because i do not give them what they want and perhaps have a right to expect i care nothing for which is the More pathetic Blaine a mental wreck or Blaine snubbed Aud humiliated by Harrison who so far As intellect is concerned is not fit to untie ins shoestrings but All the evidence goes to show that Blaine mentally is the Blaine of Yore. Does his correspondence with Pudim or Imperiali show any signs of mental weakness was there anything wanting in the Way in which he scored Mckinley and his Tariff Bill and did not he alone of ail republicans see what the effects of that Bill would he what can be shrewder than the w a in Winch he is working his reciprocity schemes whether they mean anything or not he is making the country believe that he and reciprocity will be the modern philosophers Stone which is to turn All baser metals into Gold and inaugurate an Era of peace and plenty. There is i venture to say More genuine diplomacy boing transacted in the state department today than has Ever been known before. Could a broken Down invalid a nerveless old Man. Have the brain to conceive and the Power to execute to Blaine is not yet ready to be Laid on the shelf. He has effaced himself rather than submit to the continual snubbing and humiliation which to would remove at Tho hands of Harrison where does tills agreement Between Blaine and Harrison which or. Watterson Speaks of. Come in ? no Ono hero believes for one moment that they have reached an understanding. On the contrary we have extrinsic evidence enough to show that Harrison is insanely jealous and suspicious of Blaine and that the latter if to is not Tim candidate will be Able to control the nomination. I was enabled to announce exclusively in this Globe a week or so ago that or Blaine had told a couple of ins friends when asked to to a candidate that he could not control tie action of his friends. This was a Pointer Quot enough even to Tho dullest. A few Days later Aud As if to corroborate what i had said j. Manchester Haynes. Who is nowadays very close to Blaine said that or. Blaine would he a candidate. Less than two boars ago i had a talk with a Western member of Congress who is everywhere recognized As Blaines mouthpiece on the door of the House. This gentleman was in High glee. He called my attention to the despatches from Madrid announcing Tho successful termination of John w. Foster s Mission. A i Don t know whether thence despatches Are this Man said a but i should imagine that they had been officially inspired. Well if or. Blaine has been Able to conclude a reciprocity treaty with Spain he has done everything which he started out to accomplish. To can afford now to laugh at the Central and South american countries. It makes him invincible and irresistible no Man after this can Cavil at or. Blaine his Genius stands Forth triumphant. And puts him Lead and shoulders above every Man in his this As i say comes from a warm admirer of the Secretary of state and is not entirely a dispassionate criticism but is it not significant does it not Bear out what Thurman said in the last Campaign a Blaine who said a has been bitten by Tho presidential i spider its virus is so malignant i hat once it enters the system it can never be verily it. Appears As if the virus had not lost its Potency. As for Harrison there cannot be a question that lie is crazy for renomination. Every act of hts every appointment shows this to be True. He wants a renomination and if elected it is Safe to Wager that or. Blaine will not be a member of the second administration of b. H. Watching the game of politics being played right under our eyes where we eau see almost every move is amoral certainty that barring unforeseen contingencies Harrison will Boa candidate and so will blame either in person or by Deputy. B y that i mean that if Blaine secs he cannot be nominated All the Blaine strength will he thrown for Alger or some other Man of the same Stripe whom Blaine will he Able to control and who will make Blaine Premier in fact As Well a in name. And i doubt not that or. Blaine would just As soon have his name handed Down to posterity As the originator of Tho pan american Continental policy As he would to be a president whose Only Fame rested on the fact that for four years he had occupied Tho White House. A. Maurice Low. No More Bonds at present. Secretary Foster discontinues their redemption for a time. Washington april 2d.�?Secretary Foster has issued the following circular discontinuing the redemption of 4mi Lier cent Bonds a with a View to reserving the residue of Tho 4 a per cent. Loan for adjustment within the fiscal year which begins on the first Day of july next Public notice is hereby give that redemption of tile Bonds of that. Loan will be discontinued for the present and the circular of oct. 1under which such redemption have been made is hereby rescinded. Due Public notice will hereafter be Given of the action of the department with respect to the said 4vi per cent looking for Cabinet seat. Taken for granted that Proctor will of into the Senate. Washington april 26.�?it is so generally conceded by the politicians that gov. Page will appoint Secretary Proctor to succeed senator Edmunds at Tho right time that although there will not be a vacancy for some months yet in the War department the names of a great Many men Are being mentioned As probable successors to or. Proctor. So far Only two new England names have been heard. The Vermont men will doubtless unite in favor of judge Veazey of the interstate Commerce commission and commander in chief of the g. A. R. Sex gov. Person c. Cheney of new Hampshire would not refuse the place if it was offered to him. Tie far Western politicians Are going to make a determined Effort to secure the place for one of their number. They say that Tho West the real West has no representative in the Cabinet and new England having the state department should be satisfied with that and not expect a second member. Ohio Indiana Wisconsin Aud Missouri have been taken care of but the West and especially the far West has been left out in , and Tho president they say would make votes in the next convention by selecting a practical politician from that Section. Among the Western names mentioned Are those of sex senator Hill of Colorado sex senator Pierce of North Dakota. Morris m a Ile a a a Estee of California. Senator Manderson of Nebraska who would probably not give up hissed ten the Senate for a place in to Cabinet and Gen. Grant tie present assistant Secretary. Called Back. An incident of Indian warfare on Nebraska Prairies. Detroit free pros. J in the summer of 1877. A Dusty tired look ing party of horsemen 40 in number were wending their Way Over the rolling Prairie land of Western Nebraska. In the Lead and to the rear Rode Quot a detachment of Uncle same a Blue coated soldiers commanded by a bearded Captain whole experience on the Frontier had made his name Well known. In the midst carefully guarded were a half dozen Cheyenne indians and. Following them came to citizens whose garb betokened them to be settlers of the Plain and whose jailed horses showed that they had been hard Ridden. The soldiers were jubilant Over their capture. Tho indians were stolidly indifferent while the plainsman wore sullen countenances which brooded no Good for the red prisoners. The indians were a portion of ii raiding party that two Days before Iliad attacked outlying settlements and massacred several entire families. Tile citizens were a party that had been formed to follow the indians and avenge their outrage and that morning they had a if to. foe and were Bent on their annihilation when the troopers had Sud Denly come upon the scene and to the disgust of the settlers captured tie whole party and thus robbed them of their revenge. An hour later a Camp was selected by the Side of a Clear Stream which coursed Over a a White Sandy Bottom. One of tile citizens who had not dismounted Rode up to the group of indians Ami addressed a wrinkled Huck whose hard countenance clearly bespoke his Bloodthirsty nature. A a what a that on your shirt injun a he asked. The Indian seeing he was attracting notice proudly straightened himself. Fastened to the redskins much be fringed and beaded Deerskin shirt were three scalps All from the fair Heads of Little children and one of them a yellow curl of a baby. Quick As thought the w Lite Many a pistol came from the Holster on his Saddle and crack tile Redskin fell Forward with a Bullet Between his eyes. In another moment the avenged settler was speeding across the Prairie mid the a a commanding officer had ordered a detail of his men to capture him. As they mounted and started in Pursuit Ono of the plainsman said a Captain that hair tied to that Are injun belonged on his Little Uusi Quot sound the recall a said the Captain to his trumpeter. Guilty a drama. Puck he do Tell me How your brother is getting on. She of much better today thank you. But poor Annie is nearly broken Down with nursing him.

So distressing Isnit it she of shocking then Tho montages. They think Nelly out of danger now hut Lier Mother Hasni to left the House.

They regard each other with impenetrable countenances he by the Way done to you want to go take a look at tile pictures at the Bunn club some Day this week victorians railway train. London world the train by which the Queen travelled from Cherbourg to Grasse consisted of 14 carriages of which the two in the Centre Are her majesty a private property the one being fitted As a sitting room and the other As bedroom with a Bath compartment. There were our sleeping saloons and two Luggage vans the Queen s own carriages Are usually kept at Brussels. Newfoundland a plea heard at th8 bar of British House of lords. Sir William Width Way pleads the close of the Colony eloquently. France holds the key to the situation a a grave crisis. The expectation of so rare and important a event As the representatives of a Colony being heard at the bar of the House attracted an unusually Large number of spectators to Tho British House of lords thursday. The seats in the Side galleries were filled with pee resses and the galleries assigned to the Meliers of the House of commons were largely occupied. There was a full attendance of Peers and tit Prince of Wales and Prince Albert Victor sat together on a Cross Bench. On the Steps of Tho throne were seated lord in True sir John Gorst political Secretary of the India office Baron Henry de Worms political Secretary of the colonial office Henry Cecil Raikes the postmaster general sir Henry James and other leading members of the House of commons. In Ord Dun Raven moved that the Newfoundland delegates be heard at Tho bar of the House. Lord Knutsford Secretary of state for the colonial department assented to the motion and lord Chancellor Hal Bury gave orders that the delegates be admitted. The five Newfoundland delegates headed by the Premier of Newfoundland sir William Whiteway thereupon made their appearance. Sir William Whiteway delivered his statement in a Clear Well pitched voice every syllable being distinctly audible. He was listened to throughout with keen attention. The statement opened with a review of the history of the legislation in which Newfoundland is concerned since the treaty of utrecht in 1713, when Franco ceded St. Kitts Hudson Bay Nova Scotia and Newfoundland to . Sir William Whiteway then proceeded to give the details of the objections of the newfound Landers to lord Knutsford a coercive Bill introduced in the House of lords by the colonial Secretary and concluded with the following proposals which he said ought in the opinion of the delegates and in the opinion of the people of Newfoundland to be accepted by the Imperial government As a Iii. A solution of tile difficulties now existing that the Newfoundland legislature pass immediately an act authorizing the execution for this year of the modes Visendi and of the award of the arbitration commission together with All treaties and declarations under instructions from the Queen in Council that Lurther Progress of the Knutsford Bill be deferred until tie passage of the above act and that the present arbitration agreement shall not be allowed to operate beyond the lobster question without obtaining the prior consent of the Colony of Newfoundland in which Case the Colony shall be represented on the commission. That the Colony of Newfoundland desires that Tho agreement be for unconditional arbitration on All Points that either party can raise under the treaties. If this can be arranged Between great Britain and France Newfoundland will ask to be represented upon Tho arbitration commission and will pass an act to enforce Tho execution of the awards of the commission. Sir William White Way added that the Newfoundland delegates regret that up to the present moment these proposals have not Only not been accepted but that no Hope has been held out that they Ever will to accepted. Their adoption he said would immediately cause the excitement at present existing in Newfoundland to subside and Muld induce peace under conditions which would make coercion by War ships extremely difficult. The Newfoundland Premier added that if the Knutsford Bill became a Law it will have been forced upon a resentful people but if the proposals of the Newfoundland delegates were adopted every Good object of the Bill would to easily and pleas Antly attained. The enactment of the Bill lid would leave a ranking wound in the hearts of the colonists and would establish a precedent which would Ever give a feeling of insecurity to every self governing Colony. A in offering on behalf of the colonial legislature a continued the Premier of Newfoundland Quot to enact Laws providing for the honorable fulfilment of obligations of an Oceh Dinghy odious kind. We Are Ani mated by a spirit of patriotism and Devo Tion to the Empire. Persistence Iii the Pas Sage of the Hill. Therefore will be a poor return for that Faith in parliament which animated Tho Newfoundland legislature in sending us to the bar of Thel Louse of lord Knutsford at the conclusion of the Newfoundland premieres remarks in mov no to adjourn the second Reading of his Newfoundland coercive Hill until monday referred in terms of warm Praise to the very Able speech made by sir William Whiteway. Should the delegates be unsuccessful in their Appeal to the House of lords they intend to apply for a hearing before the commons. It Cable advices stating that the differences Between Canada and Newfoundland had been adjusted and that Canada is supporting Newfoundland on the bait question Are utterly discredited in official circles. So far As can be Learned the situation is no better than it was two or three weeks ago. Senator Howland had very Friendly discussions with the Newfoundland delegates crossing the Ocean but the Newfoundland government As yet has evinced no disposition to withdraw from its unfriendly attitude toward Canadian fishermen. The Post says that sir William Whiteway has not made out a very substantial Case. The news says that the the fullest attention of the government Aud of Tim country. The Standard says a sir William White ways formidable indictment fails to override the Broad issues since however the difference is less Ope of principle than one Der of procedure a Good understanding should be easily attained a the l Imes says a if satisfactory i Iran River w tees Are Given the act Premier Whiteway proposes will speedily he passed. The government will be Only too pleased to he rid of its invidious task. Sir Williams proposal is much the same As lord a. And therefore the excitement is hard to understand. Tie Crux of the matter however. Is arbitration. Will Newfoundland persist in Lier present attitude if France steadily declines arbitration a the chronicle says a a Newfoundland a objection to arbitration cannot have much weight now but Tho assertion that Newfoundland was Mot consulted upon the adoption or renewal of the modes Visendi if Correct is Good ground for first chinese locomotive. Made out of scrap Iron by native workmen in 1381. Railways in North China in 1878 Coal mining was begun a1 tongan about 80 Miles Northeast of tientsin. It was arranged to build a Railroad 29 Miles Long from tie mines to the nearest navigable water that is to Lutai on the Pell Tang to. It was then. In 1878, that or. Kinder went out As a resident Engineer. Before tile Railroad work could he begun the authorities had decided to operate a canal21 Miles Long to to Point within seven Miles of Tho Colliery and to connect t lie canal and Colliery by a Tramway to be worked by mules this was done. Fortunately Thega Geof 4 feet 8v2 inches was after Inu it difficulty sanctioned but it in was stipulated that no locomotives should be used but before tie track was completed this had virtually become a dead letter. The country was easy but several Sharp curves de were introduced to avoid Graves. Subsequently tile owners of these Graves objecting to the noise so near the Bones of their ancestors allowed the remains to be removed and the line was rectified. This track was Laid with 30-Pound steel rails Flange Section and ballasted with broken Limestone. During the Winter of 1880-81 or. Kinder built a locomotive in the shops of Tho company. It was built entirely of Odds and ends which could be procured without attracting attention. Tim boiler belonged to Iblis a portable winding wheels were 30-Inch Whitney chilled of ii Hung Chang or. Kinder was allowed. The to finish Tho locomotive which was christened the a rocket of China a just i of years after the birth of George Stephenson. On nov. 8, 1881, this engine took a party of officials Over the line at a Speed of 20 Miles an hour and after that the objections to locomotives were virtually abandoned. Or. Kinder says there is Little doubt that it this engine had not been built As it was. In China and by native workmen it would never have been allowed to run and the use of locomotives would have been postponed for Many Speed the smiling nature Gladden the Farmers heart grass comes out in its Green livery. That eccentric yet Beautiful old Dame nature got her Mould in position rather Early this Spring that she might have time to fashion an Ideal season Tor the Husbandmen of new England. All the ingredients ready she poured fount her Mystic ladle Tho Moulten mass of Green and Vari Colo Rcd tints germs for fruit and vegetables and time tables for the arrival of the song Birds. But the Mould in which this Young season was fashioned proved too weak for the healthy infant. Its sides gave Way and the child boarded Tho old Dames fast express and arrived in now England two weeks ahead of time. Its arrival was so sudden that the Chilly blasts from the North had barely time to make a Graceful exit and for a while the inhabitants of this part of the country were surprised but none Tho less glad when Tho warmth of three or four Days ago coaxed them to leave their top Coats at Homo.

Winter Grain promises Well and in Connecticut the first stopping place of the baby Spring seeding Lias been under Way for a week. The rapid growth of the grass is furnishing Early pasturage and promises Well for Stock. The Maple sugar season in new Hampshire which started in exceptionally Early this year is about Over and reports from .7� Charlestown and other places in its Vicinity Are to the effect that the season is about Over.

Ban Domingo ready. To special commission in Washington talk reciprocity. Washington april 24.�?when or. Nathan Appleton of Boston was in Washington a week or so ago Tun Globe correspondent had an interview with him in which he pointed out the advantages in the matter of Trade which might follow from closer Cornu Ere a1 relations with Tho Republic of san Domingo. That the West Indian Republic is Only too anxious to do business with this country is proved by the fact that there is now in Washington a special commissioner from san Domingo armed with Powers to negotiate a reciprocity treaty under the clauses of the Mckinley Bill. Senor Manuel de a Galvan is the name of the special envoy. He wan formerly dominican minister to this country and he negotiated a treaty Between the two governments which was never sent to the create for its action. He stud a with a treaty favouring american goods the importations from the United states would aggregate fully 83.300.000, displacing the Cotton goods and Iron Waros which we get from England the fancy f oods shoes and drugs which we import rom France and Tho Beer and other articles which come from Germany. Our people Are wealthy and anxious to Deal with the United states. When i Tell you that there Are no internal Revenue taxes in san Domingo and that its revenues Are derived solely from customs duties you Cen appreciate the sacrifice that we make in cutting donuts the customs receipts in order to admit american goods either free of duty or with wheels which had been bought As scrap castings and the frames were made of Channel Iron. Before this was finished its preparation became known and orders were issued that it should be stopped. Eventually however through the offices a Tariff so Low that they Are Given immense advantages Over european goods. Already we take your flour lard Ana provisions.

The Needle existed without disintegration for several thousand years on the Nile and if it had been left probably would have existed for Many other thousands of years.

At that time a russian actor named Andrew Koo Lac came to Yasinia Soliana. Lie told the count a Story of a mysterious Man on a railway Tram who described How lie murdered his wife. Such was the inception and growth of the great Story that has shaken the foundations of society throughout Tho civilized world. Quot Tho Story of the a Kreutzer sonata is simply a protest against an Mality and an Appeal for Tho christianity of Christ a said Tai count. Hut surely a was ventured Quot you dare not.

A did no to you Chaine me about a Dollar too much for that barrel of flour the grocer hears this question from ail rides this month for flour has taken to rising on its own account in a Way that puts yeast to the Blush and threatens Tho very existence of the baking powders. Retailers can Supply you with just a Good flour As Ever but in the last six weeks the Price Lins advanced about 810 per ton on Best grades and wholesalers Are not particular about contracting to deliver a great Quantity at present rates. Quot a brisk foreign demand a said or. Ewen r. Mcpherson of Mcpherson Brothers the state St flour merchants a is the principal Factor in this Advance. Increased exports trom the United states have resulted from the discouraging reports about the Early european wheat a last year a a poor year for wheat in this country but we Nave not Felt the effects until now because the Millers although they have been manufacturing flour it a loss have More than made it up on Tho High prices of feed. A now that the Price of feed is dropping w Ith the coming of summer up goes Tho Price of flour \ cry naturally. A Mill feed a year ago was quoted at $18 per ton. This year it has ranged much nil Sigher being a trifle Over 25 at present hut from this time on the figures will decline. As cattle and other live Stock go out to pasture. A the big Export movement however is responsible in the main for the impetus the season is backward and cold Rains and Low temperature have la Eon the Rule in marked contrast with the Forward season we have experienced Here in the following statements Iii a letter received from one Cit the largest Mills in Michigan by a Boston flour merchant Are but a Sample of what Many local dealers Are receiving from Western Millers this month a we Hope a says the missive a that tile and it settled Here to Lur As Quot the trip Hammer was concerned but she still writes to not for other editors.

Harrison snubbed by Foraker Indian ans disgusted. april 23.�?not Only was the National convention of the league of re clubs a dismal failure so far a numbers a concerned but it has Canedi More bad blood in the Republican party Titan All the party doctors can cure in a year. The treatment of the Harrison men was As ungrateful As it was disgraceful. A few of the delegates Are still in the City and they Talka suit nothing but Tho Bun Ling work of Tho convention. Even the blame men admit that they a a ried tilings too far. And that the Harrison men will take revenge for the insults heaped upon their favorite at the very first Opportunity. In shies the insult offered by Foraker the action of Tho convention in electing a boo rotary was a direct shot at the administration. Hie Harrison men decided to make a test of their strength on Secretary. I hey thought that As Clarkson an intense Blaine Man. Had been elected president that the Ecroyd rho were running the convention would give them some show for an office. J. B. I tub. An officeholder under Harrison. Was nominated against Humphrey who Lias held lha Plait for two years and has a off snap receiving a salary of $3000 a year for about two months work.

The Indiana crowd who had come Here with Tho fond expectation of having the next meeting of the league in Indianapolis having been promised last year at Nashville that the convention should go there in �?T92, had a Chance to stand on their Hind legs Ami howl.

Sex congressman Peel of Indianapolis a Harrison office Holder made a great kick when he found that his slate was to be robbed of Iii prize and said some hard things about Thurston and Ottier Blaine no ii who had so 0uuuletely ignored the existence of b. Harrison. Tile matter was disposed of by leaving it to the executive committee with inst inc Lions to Call Tho convention after Tho nominating convention for president next year of Harrison is nominated Indianapolis May get it but otherwise it will go to Buffalo Pittsburg or Detroit. Home of the Western delegates to the convention were not pleased with the platform. Two or three of them fought in the commuter on resolutions for some expression which would attract Hie attention of the members of the Farmers Alliance who in the West Are nearly All republicans. There was also some quiet protests against giving Mckinley snob prominence owing to the feeling against him among the Farmers Iii Kansas. Minnesota Aud Nebraska the friends of several candidates came Here with their Little preliminary booms hut All of them got lost except the one for Blaine Xii michigander tried to arouse some enthusiasm for Alger but Tho delegates would not listen to them. A very few in the Ohio delegation talked about John Sherman again but they had to keep very quiet for fear of drawing Down upon them Tho Wrath of Foraker. The fireworks statesman has Tho Vic presidential itch very badly. He has been led to believe that his Only Chance to get a nomination on the Tail end 0/ the nations ticket is to Boom blame. He will Tako ills chances with Alger who will take anything he can get that will give Hini notoriety. The indiscreet ignoring of Harrison yesterday has antagonized tile friends of Tho president in Indiana but the Gresham and Blains men who really applaud the senti Tiff meats of Foraker have notified hint that he can depend upon their help at any time he May need it. Altogether till remix Linns Are in a bad mess and it is said by some that the blunders made Here will result in the disruption of the league of Republican clubs which Lias accomplished nothing except to stir up strife in Hie party.
