By the Associated Press.
Louisville, May 24.—The night before
the**t)attle gives every indication that
tomorrow's contest in the Bourbon state
Democratic convention will 'add another
blossom to tbe great laurel wreath of
Cleveland's successes. Although there
is a great division of opinion, the pre
ponderance of sentiment seems favora
ble to a strong declaration for Cleve
land wbich, however, can only be given
in the face of most vehement opposition
by the supporters of Carlisle and
Watterson. Carlisle stands himself as
a presidential candidate, and Walter
son ia the leading exponent of the prin
ciple tbat the Democratic party in '92
must "shun New York and save the
Congressman McCreary appears to be
the unanimous choice tor permanent
chairman of the convention. Of tbe
four delegates-at-large, the selection of
three is practically settled. They are
Henry Watterson, J. A. McKenzie and
W. C. Owens. For the fourth position
a contest is probable.
In a speech tonight in response to a
serenade, Watterson said, in part:
"From first to last, speaking as a friend
and not an enemy of Cleveland, I urged
that it would be ruinous-to bim ana to
us. to his great name, and to onr hopes
in the immediate future, to nominate
him, unless New York should come to
the national convention solid behind
him. New York is split wide open. Ita
regular Democrats are committed against
Cleveland. How can any thoughtful
Democrat see anything but defeat in
such conditions ? I know in the begin
ning that Cleveland took the same view
of the situation, and if now he really and
seriously wants the nomination, be has
changed his opinion.

COMMITTED TO PROHIBITION.
The MethodUt Chore* Practically Made
• Political Machine.
Omaha, May 24.—At the afternoon
session of the Methodist Episcopal con
ference the committee on temperance re
ported with a vigorous statement of the
well-known attitude of the Methodiat
church toward the liquor traffic, which
is denounced aa "full of dtaboli
cism." The report declared tbat
the church should accept no compro
mise ; the liquor business must surren
der. In conclusion, tbe report said,
no party had a right to the support of
Christian men so long as that party
favored the license system
Judge Lawrence offered a substitute,
stating that the church did not propose
to take a hand in politics, and that
every man had a right 'to
vote' as he pleased. He held that

was cunningly worded so as to commit

the church to the support of the Pro
hibition or third party indirectly, and
at the same time hit the Republican
party a smash in the same cunning way.
In conclusion he said: "The Methodist
Episcopal church cannot afford to in
dorse the Prohibition party or any other
political party." (Great applause.]
A motion to lay Judge Lawrence's
substitute on the table failed to pass.
The Prohibition leaders of the commit
tee began to grow anxious about the
fate of the report.
Dr. Evanß, the chairman of the com
mittee on temperance, declared that the
report was not worded in a manner to
lend support to any political party. Tbe
report, ne said, simply sought to place
the Methodist church squarely against
the perpetuation of the liquor traffic.
He was warmly applauded.
Judge Lawrence's substitute was then
defeated, 200 to 24. Then came a vote
upon the report of the committee, and
it was adopted.
The rules were then suspended and
.the conference passed a resolution in
troduced by Little of Illinois, stating
that the adoption of the committee's re
port did not commit the church to any
political party. Tbe resolution was
passed by a large majority.
Tbe report of the committee on
Chinese exclusion was an earnest pro
test against the portions of tbe bill de

men to give testimony in supporting the

By the Associated Press.
San Diego, May 24.—Interest'in the
Oberlander affair at Tia Juana is un
abated. Acting Governor Jose M. Ross,
Judge Pedro Rendon, J. M. Cadena and
J. M. Obanda came up this morning
from Ensenada for the purpose of inves
tigating the case. On their arrival
they were met by George Fuller, a prom
inent attorney, and District Attorney
Johnstone Jones, and had a conference.
Later in the forenoon, District Attorney
Jones made full presentation of the facta
to the Mexican officials, and an informal
discussion of the issues involved fol
lowed. A little later tbe six Mexican
officials proceeded to Tia Juana to make
Telegrams have been sent by Attorney
Jones to the United States attorney
general at Washington and to the attor
ney-general of California explaining tbe
cause of the difficulty. A formal com
munication was also forwarded to the
Mexican consul, Sehor A. V. Lomely of
this city, requesting that the Mexican
authorities take cognizance of tbe affair.
In this letter Mr. Jones rehearsed the
caus? of tbe difficulty, and expressed the
opinion that if the arrest had been
made, as reported, on this side of the
line it was a clear violation not only of
international law but of the existing
extradition treaty. He also pointed
oat that if Oberlander had crossed
tbe line for the purpose of arresting
Cruz, afterward escaping to the United
States, the proper course wonld have
been to make a formal demand npon
Governor Markharn for bia extradition.
A man who came np from Tia Juana
this afternoon said: "We left lia Juana
at noon, and up to that hour nothing
had been heard from Oberlander and

was accompanied by four guards on

THB MEASURE PASSES SECOND
READING IN THE COMMONS.
Gladstone Makes a Great Speech in
Opposition to It—The Liberals
London, May 24.—Discussion of the
Irish local government bill was resumed
today in the commons. Gladstone
■poke at great length. He said the !
house was in the singular position of •
discussing a bill which it was improba- i
ble would be proceeded with. In 1886,
Chamberlain and Lord Hartington 1
firomised Ireland everything short of an
ndependent parliament. Now all these
promises are dissolved in the present
meager bill, which stamped Ireland
With inequality, as compared with
England and Scotland, and falsified the
miserable relics of the solemn pledge by
which the present majority was obtained
by the government in 1886. Lord Salis
bury's recent language distinctly en
couraged civil war. Definite explana
tions ought to be given whether the
cabinet ia generally of the same opinion
as the premier. m
Did the ministers believe, aaked
Gladstone, that the people of Ulster
Would rebel against tbe decision of par
liament, or that the employment ot tbe
powers of the crown to suppress such a
rebellion would be such an outrage as
would rend society in two? If Lord
Salisbury's language meant anything, it
was a plain invitation to a few mis
guided men to resort to violence to re
sist the authority of parliament. These
were the conditions the Irish members
had offered them in the stinted gift of
the present bill.
Gladstone then at length examined
the leading provisions of the bill and
said it stamped Ireland with inequality
and inferiority, by withholding from her
the power and privileges that obtained
in her sister countries.
Could it be possible, asked Gladstone,
to conceive a greater contempt for his
tory and disregard of sound political
principles ? Could the bill be called an
honest effort to satisfy Irish aspirations
or a fair attempt to legislate for Ireland ?
Rather might it be called the refuse of
political legislation. The bill conferred
on the Liberate one great advantage: It
Save the people power to measure and
etermine exactly the value of the splen
did Conservative promises of absolute
equality with the laws of Great Britain.
Was Ireland wrong in rejecting this
measure? No; the stamp of inequality
was the brand of degradation. If Ire
land was capable of accepting the meas
ure so stamped she was unworthy of the
great men who had led her in times of
adversity; unworthy of that happy,
better destiny he trusted and believed
she was about to accomplish. [Cheers.]
Balfour responded to Glsdstone. He
analyzed and explained Lord Salisbury's
remarks, putting upon them a more
favorable interpretation than that ad
vanced by Gladstone. Then coming
down to the matter of the bill, be
urged that it was substantially the same
as the English and Scotch bill. If there
was a difference, it was due to tbe pe
culiar conditions prevailing in Ireland.
The hill was opposed, he said, solely be
cause it would not serve tbe purpose of
the Irish agirators. What waa the real
aim of the home rulers ? It was separa
The government believed local gov
ernment would be a great boon to a
population knowing how to use it. The
government desired to confer this boon
or Ireland. The issues were clear on
their side; it rested with Gladstone to
make his clear. The government bad
shown it still earnestly desired to ac
complish what it aimed to do. What
Gladstone desired to do, no human
The bill passed to second reading, 339
to 247, amid great Conservative cheers.
They are delighted at their solid major
ity. The only Gladstonians who voted
with the government were Storey and
Yillierß. ihe Liberals are disappointed
at the result, blaming it on tbe absence
of so many Irish members. Out of
twenty-nine Parnellites, only sixteen
voted; and out of fifty-five McCartby
iteß, only thirty-eight.

San Fkancisco, May 24.—There will
be no bloodshed over the contest which
has been going on during the past few
days between the Water Front company
and J. L. Davies for possession of a por
tion of Oakland's water front. Today a
compromise was effected. The Water
Front company will withdraw the

and the men on each side will be dis

THE LOST PEGLEG.
A Party of Prospectors Foiled by the
Some two week's ago the W. B. Rus
sell prospecting party, numbering
eight persons, left this city in search
of the long lost Pegleg mines,
says the Riverside Enterprise. The
party has returned. In conversation
with an Enterprise reporter, one of
the party said tbat they went on the
Colorado desert, but made very little
headway in the search, as it was un
bearably hot. The mercury registered
125 degrees. "However, some traces
of the lost mines were discovered, and
if it had been possible to stay on the
grounds two or three days we might
have been able to solve the mystery as
to whether the Pegleg is a reality or a
myth," said one of the party. The
prospectors are not satisfied, and will in
all probability try it again some time.
Another party, consisting of Geo. L.
Bush, L. S. Murray and G. W. Keeny,
have returned from a new mine west
of the Good Hope, where they have
been developing a claim. They
brought in some very rich gold and sil
ver bearing quartz, wbich will be as
sayed. From appearances the gentle
men have a good thing.
COMPANY A IS WILLING.
San Diego Guardsmen Think They Can
Beat Our Men.
A rumor which was circulated last
week, says the San Diego Union, to tbe
effect that Company A, Ninth regiment,
N. G. C, would not go to Omaha to
compete in the drills to be held in
tbat city from June 13th to 21st, was
verified yesterday. Lieutenant Ihelin
informed the Union that the company
had made every effort to Becure the re
quired number, which waa recently
changed from thirty-two to thirty-eight
linemen, three officers and a musician,
but success was not met with.
A rumor was current Saturday which,
if true, will in a measure make up for
the Omaha trip. Informally word had
been received that one or more of the
four companies of the Seventh regiment
of Los Angeles would like to ar
range a competitive drill with company
A, to be contested for in a few weeks.
Company A would ask for nothing more
and undoubtedly would accept a chal
lenge and do it gladly.
