SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DIEFATCH.1
Philadelphia, June 23. Senator Quay
braved the city heat to-day on account of
business matters that demanded immediate
attention. In company with his son, Rich
ard IJ. Quay, he came up from Washington
late Wednesday night and retired immedi
ately to rooms in the Continental, seeing no
one. Collector Cooper met the Senator
at breakfast in his rooms this morning, and
Ex-Collector Martin was almost as prompt
They later went to the Custom House, and
about noon Mr. Quay called on Mayor
Stuart. City Solicitor Warwick was there
also and the conference covered an hour.
Mr. Warwick admitted that they talked
politics, but declined to go beyond that
"I think Harrison will be elected," said
Mr. Quay. "He is a growing man before
the people, and his adminiration is full of
campaign material that the Republicans
will know how to use effectively."
"It is the same head as four years ago to
the Democratic ticket," remarked tome one
to the Senator.
"That is so, and I think the Democracy
hare a weak candidate in Mr. Cleveland.
That is to the ad autage of the Republicans,
but the fight will hardly begin before a
month or so."
Turning to Collector Cooper the Senator
observed: "The Farmers' Alliance looks
like abreak in the South,and we have noth
ing to lose down that xvay. The election
in he Mills district indicates a very weak
spot in Texas."
"When are vou going to Brigantine
"Not just yet I return to Washington
this afternoon. Congress may adjourn
about the middle of July and then I ex

ET-Shenff Kern met the Senator at the
CuMom House just as he was about to take
a cab for an uptown trip. "I ill bet $10,
000 that Harrison goes through, and if you
Know anyone who wants to lose money
send him around," was part of the greeting
General Fra-ik Reedcr did not meet Mr.
Quay for the iery solid reason that he is
out on the ocean sailing, and has been
since Saturday, on his way to Europe. Gen
eral Reeder's party comprises his wile, his
sons, Douglass aud Frank, Jr., and Mrs. A.
M. Thompson, mother of Mrs. Reeder, and
they do not expect him back in Easton be
The Senator did not come across any of
the State Committee officials either, as he
met enougli ol the city leaders to tielp him
out in an understanding of the city legisla
tive nominations. The list of the candi
dates will be canvassed at the Brigantine
Reach cottage where the Senator
expects to go next Monday ac
cording to Dick Quay's 'statement.
Collector Cooper wiggled a big fan and
looked happy enough in Quay's company.
"Cleveland is a weak candidate and stands
on the same old Democratic free trade plat
form, only more so," was his style of sum
ming up opinion on the Chicago Conven
tion's work. "What has been done will
make easy business tor our side. Harrison
will win easilv."
TOOK THE FIGHT WEST.
Ex-Llrmennnt Governor Warwick Says
Mpvnion'n domination Takes tUo Bat
tle Away From w Tork It Has Been
Transferred to Illinois and Sister States.
Philadelphia, June 23. Special.
Ex-Lieutenant Governor John S. Warwick,
who went in with Hoadly after a red-hot
Ohio campaign some years ago, and two
-ears ago beat McKinley for Congress in
the Stark county district, is at the" Girard
House, and goes on to Atlantic City to
"Cleveland and Stevenson make a strong
and winning ticket," said Mr. Warwick,
"and it starts straight at the beginning. I
do not think the American people will be
fooled by any alleged tariff benefit issue
this year, after the experience they have
gone through with the McKinley law.
There never was a more flagrant bit of priv
ileged class legislation. There never will
be another like it The elections of 1890
undoubtedlv show the temper of the masses,
and while the next Congress may not be
two-thirds Democratic, as it is to-day, it
will be Tery much over half.
"The Farmers" Alliance is causing much
concern touching the Southern States,"
continued Mr. Warwick, "and we are hav
ing and seeing some of the effects of the free
silver disturbance, but the Democrats are
alive to the situation, and to be forwarned
is to be forearmed. In Texas and Missis
sippi and Tennessee the Alliance promises
trouble on the Congressional returns. I
note that the Mills district, the Ninth,
elects a Democrat by only 300 majority,
where it usually Eives 17,000. But this
trouble may be only temporary.
"However, the nomination of Stevenson
for second place with Cleveland means that
the Democrats intend to transfer the battle
from JTew York to Illinois, Iowa, Wiscon
sin and Minnesota. I was for Hill, person
ally, but New York will appear in the
Cleveland column. Tammany has no dif
ferences to settle ontside ot the convention,
and I do not think there is occasion lor
alarm. . We w ill fight New York, and have
just as good a chance for Massachusetts,
Rhode Island and Connecticut in lact,
much better than the other fellow."
whiiiiet kade no tease.
He Says the Cleveland Men Are Satisfied
V ith Stevenson on the Ticket.
Chicago, June 2a Ex-Secretary W. CL
Whitney had nothing but satisfaction to
express about the whole ticket "The
nomination of Cleveland was a foregone
conclusion, he said, ''and putting Steven
son's name upon the ticket "means that Illi
nois will this year be added to
the Democratic column. In fact, all of
the work of the convention seems to
me to have been well done. "We have more
than a fighting chance in Illinois ever since
Altgeld was nominated. Now that the
State pride is aroused by putting up thelat
Postmaster General with Cleveland e
should think that there would be no diffil
culty in carrying the Commonwealth.".
"But it was understood, Mr. Whitney,
that you yourself had arranged to put the
second place in the hands of Governor
Grav, of Indiana."
"There is absolutely no truth in such a
story. I think Governor Gray has deserved
well of the party, but it is a mistake to
imagine that any trade was made with his
friends. I think we will find Gray working
as heartilr for the ticket as any man couli
It seemed" he would be nominated, but the
choice could not be urged further than was
done. The Cleveland men are wholly satis

Flower, Coekran ana Croker Unite In Hop
ing Cleveland Will Carry New Tork
Mot the Man They Wanted, bat They
Will Obey the Pnrty Command.
Chicago, June 2a Governor Flower,
of New York, said that he had no criticism
to make upon the work of the convention.
"We have made our case as strongly as we
do now before the "court of final resort of
the Democracy of the Republic," said he.
"We can only bow to its conclusion and do
all the work we can to elect the candidate.
The condition of New York politically is
rather a curious one. We have a difficult
fight to make, and we certainly would have
preferred to make it with some candidate
who would not have aroused opposition in
our State. The judgment of our party,
however, we accept fully and finally, and
we will do all for Mr. Cleveland that we
would have done for Hill or Gorman or
Gray. We feel that we are handicapped,
but New York may be depended upon to
do the best we can" even under the most ad
"It is my judgment that with hard work
we can perhaps carry the State. I do not
like to make any promise, but if the State j
can be carried lor Cleveland by loyal and
faithful work, then nobody more than our
selves will be glad to know that our fears
Bonrke Coekran, of New York, says: "In
my speech last night I gave the reasons why
I believed that Grover Cleveland was not
the most fortunate candidate that we could
name. My advice was not taken, and now I
must tace the advice ot the convention.
The convention advises Cleveland, and for
Cleveland all of our work will be done.
The New York Democracy will not sulk.
It will do the best it can. If we go into
this fight without very much hope it is be
cause we kne iv New York better than the
people of Texas or Illinois. But we are
Democrats, and as Democrats we propose
to make the hottest campaign that has been
known in that State for a long time."
Richard Croker, of New York, occupied a
eat beside Governor Flower in tlic conven
tion. He was even more taciturn than
usual, and all he would say in reply to the
questions put to him was: "We people in
New York thought that we knew how the
Democracy would carry the State. The
Democracy has not agreed with us. We
will try to obey the command given to us
last night I hope for the best. Had al
most any other candidate heen nominated
I would have been sure of the best That
is all I have to sav."
DECLINED SECOND PLACE.
Ex-Governor Gr.iy Syi Th it He Refused
the Vice Prcsldnntal Nomination.
Indianapolis, June 2a Ex-Governor
Gray said, after he heard the news: ! was
not a candidate for Vice President and did
not desire the nomination. At a meeting
of a number of my friends on the delega
tion, held last Thursday, I informed them
that I did not want them to put me
forward for the Vice Presidency, nor
to make any arrangements to bring
about my nomination. Last Sunday a mes
senger from Chicago came to see me aud
said that the Cleveland managers had pro
posed to give me the nomination for Vice
President if I would advise mv friends on
the delegation to vote iot Cleveland. I per
emptorily declined the prorjosi tion.
"The office of Vice President has been
filled by the greatest men that the nation
has produced, and is worthy the ambition
of her most eminent citizens, but for certain
reasons I did not desire the nomination.
My friends pursued the course which they
undoubtedly thought best, and I deeply ap
preciate their friendship and will ever re
member their devotion, but I am infinitely
better satisfied than I would have'been if
they had succeeded in nominating me."

of the platform took place, in the conrse
of an interview on the subject of the plat
"As originally drafted it would have been
the shortest platform that has beenjmt

nothing more than a Republican device to
pretend that any legislation which the
Democrats in Congress would enact in pur
suance of the platform declaration would
have a destructive effect upon established
industries. The Democratic belief is that
the legislation it has proposed in exemplifi

abroad. It would not and should not strike
a destructive blow at established and le-

A 00D TICKET TO BEAT.
That's the Way General Clarkson Sizes It
TJp He Says Stevenson W as a Far More
Efficient Headsman Than the Present
Chairman of the Republican Committee.
New York, June 2a Special Chair
man James S. Clarkson. of the Republican
National Committee, with Mrs. Clarkson,
arrived at the Plaza Hotel, from Chicago
last evening. Mr. Clarkson i-aid that he
looked in at the AVigvam on Wednesday,
to see how his Democratic friends run their
conventions. Concerning the ticket, Cleve
land and Stevenson, he said:
"It is a good one to beat I think that
the selection of Harrison and Cleveland as
opposing candidates this year will cause
the campaign to be conducted on & higher
plane than a Presidents! campaign has been
for many years. There will, in my opinion,
be less personality and mud-slinging than
usual. Again, the fight will be one of pro
tection and honest money against free trade
and dishonest money.
"I don't think that the Republicans have
much to fear from New York, though I take
no stock. in the stories of Democratic disaf
fection here. The. affiliation, between 'the
Democrat and his ticket is such' that he
never deserts his ticket at the polls. There
is more to be feared by the Republicans
from some of the 'Western States, where
third party doctrines have taken root, but I
confidently believe that the Republican
team will come under the wire first next
"Mr. Stevenson having been my prede
cessor in office, I have had occasion to
search bis record, and therefore know some
thing about him. I can tell you that as
First Assistant Postmaster General he
chopped a blanked sight more heads off
than I did."
Mr. Clarkson went to Washington to
night, to arrange for the meeting of the
Republican National Committee there next
Monday. "I am not going to serve another
term as Chairman of the committee," said
he, in answer to a .question. "It is a most
thankless place. It you .win you are
treated with ingratitude, and if you lose
you are accused with being incompetent and

Although He Opposed Cleveland He Bends
to the Popular Will.
Chicago, June 2a Hon. William M.
Springer, Chairman of the Ways and
Means Committee of the House of Repre
sentatives, who has been among those who
opposed President Cleveland's nomination
on the ground that it would not be ex
pedient, said this evening that "owing to
the intense bitterness provoked by factional
contests in the State of New York, I
doubted very much the availability of Mr.
Cleveland. That, however, is a question of
fact which has been, adjudicated by the rep
resentatives of the people in this "National
Convention. These representatives came
from every part of the country and are of
the opinion that Grover Cleveland is
available not only available, but the most
available of all candidates. Of his
availability., therefore, there can no longer
be a question of doubt Personally and
politically he has always been my first
choice, but I honestly opposed him because
of my fears of the State of New York.
There is no man whose election to the high
office of President would give me more in
"The nomination of Mr. Stevenson for
Vice President," continued Mr. Springer,
"will add great strength to the Presidental
ticket He is strong where Mr. Cleveland
is weak,, and his nomination will give
strength in localities where there is danger
of disaffection. A distinguished Democrat
from New York, an adherent of Tammany,
told me this evening that Mr. Stevenson's
nomination would add many thousand votes
to the" ticket in New York."

Kecommend a Democratic State Conven

ae;e Men Can Stomach Neither Cleveland
Nor Harrison Their Manifesto.
Chicago, June 2a To-night after the
adjournment of the National Convention
the following significant m document was
framed and wired to the West:
Chicago, Juno 23.
To the Democratic Voters of Colorado:
The nomination of Grover Cleveland and
the palpably evasive declarations upon the
silver question by the National Democratic
Convention confronts the'Democratlc party
of Colorado with a serious problem.
If the convention had declared
that fieo bi-raetallio coinage was a
tenet ot the party, and Mr. Cleve
land acoepted the nomination upon such
a platform, we might have rested upon his
reputation for honesty, and believed that
he would, in response to the obligations
thereby imposed, shin a free coinage bill
abould Congress pass one; but with a plat
form that is Intended to be quoted in the,
Knit as not binding tho party in any
degree to free coinage, and in
the West as beinc favorable to
it, and witli a. candidate for the Presidency
whose past utterances and official acts show
him to be unalterauly opposed to tree coin
age, it is plain that with Mr. Cleveland as
President free coinage cannot be realized
durimr the term of hit administration.
As between Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Harri
son, tbeie can be no choice to tree coinage
men. itotb. have acted and spoken; Doth
hove made records that embody their de
liberate judgments. These records show
them to be enemies to tho cause so dear to
Colorado, and unless free coinage can be
case aside as of secondary Importance to the
country's welfare, the plain question Is
piesented to both the Democratic and Re
publican voter: Can they honestly, with a
full sense of their obligation to self, homo,
State und party, aid either of them to the
Tills is not a question for us to answer; It
Is for the party. We assume no responsi
bility except to speak the truth without

stances, we deem it our duty to uo. It is for
the party, after full consideration, to de

as speedily as possible, we lecommend that

ENGLAND IS PLEASED
With the Action of the Democratic Party
Loudon, June 24. The Graphic says: "Tho
defeat of Tammany Hall is a sratifyinjr
demonstration in favor of tho dignity and
straightforwardness of American public
life. Englishmen will watch Mr.Cleveland's
campaign with cordial sympathy, for not
only is his tariff policy in accord with the
orthodox economic school of England, but
his party platform wisely condemned the
arrogant and Irritating foreign policy of Its
The Chronicle says: "The nomination of
Mr. Cleveland ends one of the bittcicst polit-,
leal lights ever waged in the United States.
The breach between the waning factions
will piobably extend to the Presiden
tal contest and will tell seriously
against Mr. Cleveland's prospects, as it Is
quite possible that in the present temper of
the Hill faction they will refuse to support
Mr. Cleveland, and so secuie the triumph of
Mr. llnirison. The declaiation or the poll
or Sew York State after the election In No
vember next will, it is not improbable,
show that Hill has repeated his treachery
"Perhaps the most remarkable event of
the convention was the complete overthrow
of the protection element, and the rein
statement of the MilU feeling. Briefly
described, the outcome of tho convention is
a repetition of the struggle of 1888.and while
the Democratic clea vase is is wide as it la
now the outlook certainly lavors tho elec
tion or Mr. Harrison."
The Daily JSews says: "Mr. Cleveland's
nomination was inevitable. He had no com-
Betitor of anything like equal weight The
emocrats denounce protection with vigor.
This leaves nothing to decide. The net
result is to make the two parties
fairly issue on this vital poinr. We
fall to see any great difference between
them on the silver question. Both seem to
think that it is within the power of Congress
to make gold and silver equal in intrinsic
anitexchangable value. Nature herself np-
JjcBs to take a more modest view of
icr powers; but Americans may be able
to give her a lesson. The tariff
Question is the key to the contest It Is
gratifying to learn from our correspondent
tnat tne campaign win ue one
of argument, not of personalities.
The cotitest must, thereforef be of
great educational value. Like the coming
elections heie, it turns upon great principles
which co to the very root of national pros
perity. Two elections or such importance
have seldom come so near together in the
history of the world."
Tho Standard says: "It matters little to
Englishmen which party is victorious. The
general outlines of American history are too
ilrnly fixed for cither party to devi
ate materially from them. There Is
plenty of sentiment in America, but since
the slavery question was settled It does not
find its.wav into politics. Against tne rest
of the world the Americans can act together
with fine, manly self-seeking. Wo have
nothing but admiration for their un
sentimental, unphilanthroplc patriotism.
Canada regards Mr. Harrison's break
ing off of commercial relations as an
electoral move. The Canadians under
stand better than we the amnsing
maneuvers of American politics. Happily
for the Americans, they are not divided now
by such deep-cutting Issues at the Irish
question here. It was their turn yesterday
to be rent in twain. Let us hope it Is not
going to be ours to-day."
The Ttmet 9ays: "Mr. Cleveland had an
easier victory than Mr. Harrison.
It is probable that the Democrats
hostile to Mr. Cloveland on personal
grounds will fall into line nnd
support him In November. At the same
time it Is Impossible to deny that there
are many elements of uncertainty in
the situation. Some aro due to changes
introduced in the Democratic platform and
the Tammnny tactics ol 1S3 may be
repeated. But it is creditable to both par
ties that they have chosen candidates who
were open and candid In their appeals
for support. Wo see much to cen
sure . both in the declared prin
ciples and in the administrative
conduct of Mr. Cleveland, as wollasof Mr.
Harrison; but we cannot pretend not to be
pleased at tho shock given by both conven
tions to those who rely upon dodges, in
trigues and surprises. While there is little
to choose on the silver question, the
tariff plank marks a distinct Democratic
step in advance. The question is whether
the Democratic party generally is prepared
to go so far. It has been consideicd, how
ever, that the Democrats have hard
ly a Bbadow of a chance of
winning In States where they are
hampered by protectionists In their ranks.
It is difficult to predict,' but we are Inclined
to think that Mr. Harrison's chances are
slightly better and Mr. Cleveland's slightly
worse than in 1883.

Elmiea, June -2a Special The El
mira Gazette, in which Governor Hill has
long been credited with holding a control
ling interest, says editorially to-days
The New York Democracy scanned the
figures, looked over the field and reached
the conclusion they laid beforo the conven
tion. Holding their view it was their
duty to the Democracy to mako
it known and by effort and example
down to the last moment endeavor
to save the party from what tbey deemed
unwiso action. But there is no oDstncle in
principle to acceptance of the party decroe.
The individual boast of the men who sent
the Democratic delegation to Chicago Is "I
am a Demociat." They are capable of prov
ing It under whatever circumstances may
be Imposed. They are the men who flght
the Democratic battles and win the Demo
cratic victories. They are the men
whose zeal is frequently made the
cause of criticism. They are tho men whose
aggressive championship of the Democratic
party calls upon tbcm freqnent and heavy
denunciation by Domooratic allies. They
have been patient The counsel of the
Democracy of No w Tork has been rejected.
But submission to the majority Is Demo
cratic. The will of the greater number be
comes the will of all; acceptance of
the majority decree is a principle first
in Democratic respect. Demoorats are
not emancipated from obedience to It by
the failure of others to observe and obey.
Recollections of Syracuse are not license to
do likewise. A political creed and a rule of
action are crystallized In "I am a Demo
crat" It may bang loosely upon others. It
Is law to the men who sent Boswell
P. Flower, Wm. F. Shechnn, Edward Murphy,
General Sickles, General SloCum and their
associates to Chicago. This unceasing loy
alty was relied upon by men who have dis
regarded the counsels of New York. They
shall not be disappointed. Threats of mu
tiny may do for tho militia; they are not be
coming to soldiers of the line.
Selected the Right Wny.
The New York Evening Post (Slug.) says:
Outside of New York every State in the
North, which tho Democrats have over car
ried in a Presidental contest or stand any
chance of carrying now, was overwhelming
ly in favor of the candidate who was chosen,
lhls is exactly the way a candidate ought to
Will Clear tho Atmosphere.
The New York Telegram (Ind.) says:
The present Democratic tariff utteranco is
brave and right and suited to the times.
Quite possibly 16 may have been thrustupon
this Convention by opponents of Mr. Clove
land for tho purpose of embarrassing his
canvass. Any way, it will clear the atmos
phere and Join the issue between the parties
by giving tho Democrats a principle to bat
tle for that has the unqualified support of a
majority of the electors of the United States.
7h! Poplp Know How to Vote.
The New York World (Dem.) says:
It was fitting that Mr. Cleveland should
again be tlio opponent of Mr. Harrison.
Both nominees are sale men and enjoy the
confidence of the business community. How
ever the election mav result, the choice of
the people will not be made in ignorance or
misunderstandingof the real issues involved
in the contest.
Represents Character and Principle.
The Boston Herald (Ind.) says:
Cleveland starts out with many manifest
advantages. He represents character; he
represents dignity; lie represents strenzth.
he represents more he repreientsprluoiple;.
Nearly Everybody Will Be atlsfied.
The Boston Journal (Kep.) says:
Cleveland's nomination will satisfy every
body except that active and persistent ele
ment of his own party which has bitterly
fought him in Convention and which will
now seek to defeat him at the polls.
Without New York He Is Lost
The Boston Evening Record (Bep.) says:
The result hinges upon New York's vote.
Tammany Hall, with its firm grip upon the
city of New York, and Senator Hill, with
host3 of friends who believe in him and his
unscrupulous methods,are enemies of Cleve
land. If they "knire" the ex-President at
the polls he will suffer defeat for the second
time. To sum up the situation, can Cleve
land darry New Yoik? Even then ho may
not win; without it he is hopelessly lost.
Takes the Campaign Ont of the Mire.
The Boston Evening Traveller (Eep.) says:
The people, without distinction of party,
have a right to congiatulate themselves on
Mr. Cleveland's nomination, since it insures
a campaign in which principles rather than
persons will be discussed, and frops the
country from wallowing in the mire of per
sonal abuse and vituperation which has
characterized so many previous campaigns.
Cleveland Won the Flcht Illmseir.
The Boston Transcript (Rep.) says:
With all Mr. Whitney's masterly skill as a
manager, he could not have accomplished
Mr. Cleveland's renomination had not Mr.
Cleveland himself previously won the Dem
ocratic masses of the country by raising the
tariff issuo In 1888 again9t Mr. Whitney's ad
vice. It was this that powerfully assisted in
foiling the schemes of Congressional ln
.trigues and soured office expectations who
wanted a pliable nominee this time.
The Choice of the People.
The Philadelphia Record (Dem.) says:
Grover Cloveland is the choice of the peo
ple, and the people have risen in their
might and have put him onC3 more in the
forefront of the fight lor the leformof the
government and tor the reform of intoler
able abuses with which tho Republican ad
ministration is unwilling or unable to cope.
A Good Thine foT the Party.
The Baltimore Evening Kews (Dem.) says:
The President makers, the Senatorial
combine, the anti-Cleveland conspirators,
the trlcksters.the tacticians, the "practical"
politicians, have heard something not to
their advantage. It Is a good thing for the
Democratic party though that the will of
the Demooratlc people prevailed at Chicago
and not the wlll'of the little men who Im
pudently assumed to dlctato to their party. '
In the I-lne of Conservative Action.
The "Washington Evening Star (Ind.)
The lessons of the two Conventions will
he drawn by those who have watched the
course of politics. Without special refer
ence here to the personal qualifications of
the heads of the two tickets it must be said
by the thoughttnl observer of the events,
that the outcome of the Conventions, so far
as It has been manifest, is distinctly in line
of conservative action and elevated politics.
Influenced the Shara Market.
The New York Evening Fost't London
financial correspondent says:
Mr. Cleveland's nomination had a good in
fluence on American shares to-day. The re
peal of 'the silver act of 1890 is anticipated,
cither through a credit crisis or action by
moderate men who forsee the danger of the
Has a Flghtine Chanc.
The Philadelphia North American (Bep.)
The loglo of the Democratic situation
has been with Mr. Cleveland from the first
Mr. Cleveland Is out and out tho strongest
man the Democrats could nominate. His
selection is good politics, because be has a
fighting chance, whereas no man named in
opposition stood any chance whatever, sup
posing what we believe to be true, that the
Republicans are nnite'd for President Harri
son. Differences Bnrled In the Grave.
The Columbia, S. O., J)aily Regtotcr
(Dem.), which has led the fight against Mr.
Cleveland, will say:
From the instant that Mr. Cleveland was
declared its nominee by the Chairman of
our National Democratic Convention he
Decame the lepresentatlve and embodiment
of the success and the principle of Dem
ocracy, so It is our duty as Democrats
to bury in the grave of oblivion all past
differences, and with a unanimity of pur
poser and In unbroken ranks bear onward
and to victory tho banner of our party. Tho
man who seeks to revive old differences or
attempts to create a breach In the Demo
cratic ranks of this or any other State, is a
traitor to his party and an enemy to his peo
ple. A Victory Over Intriguing Politicians.
The Atlanta, Ga., Journal (Dem.) saysl
The triumphant nomination of Grover
Cleveland on the first ballot In the Chicago
Convention is a signal victory of the people
over the managing and intriguing politi
cians. One of the Greatest Popular Victories.
The Richmond, Va., State (Dem., says:
Cleveland's nomination signalizes ono ot
the greatest popular victories in the history
of the Union, for It demonstrates that bluff,
open fconeny and a square stand un tq
pledges made Is what the Democracy of" the
United States approves best.
There Will Be No Disloyalty.
The Albany, N. Y., Tunes-Union, a strong
Hill paper, says:
"I pledge the electoral vote of the State of
New York to the nominee of the National
Democratic Convention," said DavId.B. Hill,
in one of his many stirring speeches to the
Democrats of other States. There will be
no sulking over the result at Chicago among
the men who have stood by tho Senator
from New York with such loyalty and de
termination. Ttt9 Best M-n Chosen.
The London fall Mall Gazette, comment
ing upon the nomination of Mr. Grover
Cleveland by the American National Demo
cratic Convention, says:
It is a satisfactory seqnel to the nomina
tion of Mr. Harrison by the Republicans.
In both cases the professional politicians
and wire-pullers were defeated. The good
sense and good faith of the American elec
tors caused the best men to be chosen.
Berlin Paper Are Silent.
The Berlin papers will have little to say
on the nomination of Mr. Cleveland. The
editors of the Fost, Vouische Zeitung, Borsen
Conner, Tageblatt and other papers were in
terviewed on the subject by representatives
of the Associated Press. Thev all said that
they had written so much in honor of Mr.
Cleveland that nothing remained to be said.
They all extolled Mr. Cleveland's honesty,
and hoped that his election would cause the
repeal of the McKinley tariff law.
The Berlin National Zeit'tng will say:
Mr. Cleveland's strength.lies not only In
his official record but in his personal popu
larity, which is sustained by his personal
probity, straightforwardness and manliness.
His nomination, esnccLillv after be became
reconciled with Senator Hill, will evoke the
full Democratic vote.
Selected One Who Was Turned Ont
The Philadelphia Evening Bulletin (Eep.)
The convention which nominated Cleve
land contained men of greater ability, equal
devotion to conviction and much greater
strength before tho people; but all of these
were set aside for one who was made Chief
Magistrate once before. His public opinions
were known and he was turned ont ol office
as soon as these had been revealed.
The Best Citizenship Has Spoken.
The New York Times (Mug.) will say to
morrow: Tho best Democratic citizenship has
spoken at Chicago as tho best Republican
citizenship spoke at Minneapolis
In both parties the opposition to the major
ity's will was, In its leadership at leant, an
organized conspiracy to do harm.
The Lord be praised that these men have
bocn put downl There was a great casting
out oi devils at both conventions. The
nomination of Mr. Cleveland Is vote of
confidence in the Democracy of the State of
New York. The party was betrayed by its
organization, belied by its .official leaders;
its real service was drowned by the cries of
a noisy faction nnd a false pronouncement
of its dispositions was put forth .
It was tho Cleveland Democracy of
New York that was reoognized and was in
fluential at Chicago. It Is the Cleveland
Democracy that now comes Into control in
the State and into political relations
with the Democracy of the nation.
With a candidate who Is in himself n fortress
of strength and a popular cause upon which
it can appeal to a country already enlight
ened, the Democracy has nothing to fear
save from its own divisions or its own bad
management of the campaign.

New York, June 24. Special The
following is the Sun's leading editorial:
Theie is one question depending on the
election of the next President, which, in its

PHILADELPHIA'S INDIAN RESERVATION
A Lot in That City Which Belongs to the
It appears that a lot of land 15x57 feet,
that lies in the shadow of the Chamber of
Commerce, Philadelphia, belongs to the
Oneida Indians. While John Penn, the
grandson of William Penn, was Governor
of Pennsylvania, he granted this lot? by a
"wampum belt deed," to a delegation of
the Iroquois. The deed has been religiously
preserved since and has descended to the
Oneidas, who refuse to part with it for any
consideration. The Chamber of Commerce
sets up a claim to the land now by right of

FIRES, FAILURES AND EAILWAT NEW3
Minneapolis, June 2a The Northwestern
Miller says: The mills did not get out guite
so much flour last week as in the week be
fore, yet the outpuf was next to the largest
on record. The week's production was
210,480 barrels, against 214,030 barrels the
preceding week; 123,550 barrels for the cor
responding week of 1891, and 82,500 barrels
in 1894 Two less mills are running this
week, leaving 18 in motion, with the daily
output about 32,500 barrels.
The flour market continues rather dull,
the variations in wheat preventing the
establishment of much confidence. The
domestic trade'has fallen of materially in
the past two weeks, and were it not for
wheat being sold for export the volume of
business done would make a sorry showing.
Foreigners are buying rather freely. Low
grades are less in request than they were
a week ago, while bakers' seem to be sought
after a little more.
The direct exports last week were 69,905
barrels, against 70,420 barrels the preceding
week. It is pretty certain that the year's
work will aggregate 8,500,000 barrels. The
direct exports of flour to foreign countries
have also been unprccedentedly large. For
the nine months ended June 1, 2,677,000
barrels had found a foreign market, againit
1,190,000 in 1890; 1,659,900 in 1889-90, and
1,106,500 in 1883-89.
