Now that the Chilean excitement
has subsided the general topic is the
political outlook. '1 he plumed
knight, lllainc, is out of the Presi
dential race. His withdrawal caused
but slight surprise in Washington,
but created consternation in the Re
publican ranks in many places, Cali
fornia has been and always will be
for lilaine, and the news was any
thing but pleasant to California Re
publicans. The withdrawal of Rlnine
is said to be due to his ill health.
Maine's withdrawal leaves the
field open to Harrison, is the belief
of many prominent Republicans.
The Shermanites of Columbus, Ohio,
are wild with joy, for they believe
thnt Foraker is settled now and Har
rison is the man.
Others hint at MeKinley, Foster,
Gresham, Reed, Rusk, Sherman and
Algbr as aspirants for the presi
dency. Minister Robert Lincoln is
alto looked upon with favor.

through correspondents has inter
viewed 12311 prominent Democrats in
all parts of Georgia, as to Presiden
tial preferences, 8-19 want Cleveland,
277 are for Hill and the others scat
tering. Ex-Speaker of the House, Tom
Reed wants to go to the Minneapolis
Convention at large and furthermore
says he will go. Joe Manley says
he will not and so there is trouble
ahead. Friends of the Administra
tion say lie is going there to "make
mischief," and to prove a disturbing
element generally. He is opposed to
lilaine and Harrison.
Senator Stanford says he is not a
candidate for the Presidency, and
says his name will not be presented
with his permission.

Government bill on Thursday next
proceedings in Parliament will be
mere party skirmishing. Though the
Ministers decline to satisfy the poli

Irish proposals the draft of the bill,
which is now in type, is known to
contain a host of clauses revaling in
complexity Balfour's laud act. A
