BLAINE ENJOYING REST.
He Is Out of Politics for
The Maine Mogul's Equivocal
He Keeps the Republican Leaders in
Doubt and Despair.
The Publlo Left In Ignorance as to His
Intentions—How Minister Bg-an
Snubbed the Plumed
By the Associated Press. 1
White Plains, N. V., Oct. 17.—Blame
concluded hia visit to Whitelaw Reid
this morning and left for New York. At
the conclusion of his stay there, be goes
to Washington for the winter.
New York, Oct. 17.—Blame arrived at
the Fifth Avenue hotel this afternoon.
Hia arrival interested the politician? in
the corridor. The Republicana aeemed
delighted, but the Democrats quite tbe
reverse. When Blame's attention
waa called to the report that,
he would write anothei letter,
he eaid: "I do not want to an
swer directly. If I say 'No,' I ehall be
besieged by people who will beg me to
do something for the party. If I say
'Yes,' I shall be requested to go hither
and yon, and won't know which way to
turn. 89, you see, the only thing for
me to do ie to rest. I am obliged to
take good care of my health."
Blame looks better than he did when
he went to Ophir Farm.
blame's hopes of success.
Regarding the campaign, Blame bases
confidence as to the result of the elec
ion on what he himself has seen, and
from reports made to him by the
Republican leaders., "In a campaign
of argument and discussion, such
ac this has been," says the Maine states
man, "everything is in our favor, for
we have the better side of the great
questions before the people; besides
tuis, President Harrison has given the
country an able administration. All
that iB now needed to insure a Republi
can victory and the continuation of
prosperity throughout tbe country, is
for every Republican voter to cast a
ballot. With our full strength out, I
regard success almost certain."
HOW EUAN SNUBBED BLAINE.
Minister Egan today had his say in '
regard to a recent publication endeavor
ing to create a sensation over an alleged
attempt on hia part to snub Mr. Blame
at White Plains.
"Being called oa to speak without pre
paration," said Egan. "I omitted to
make reference to the manly and patri
otic manner in which Mr. Blame stood
by me throughout all tbe attacks made
upon me in connection with the Chilean
affair. One of tbe greatest compensa
tions for the difficult time, was the fact
that my entire course was so cordially
approved by Mr. Blame, as well as by
the president and all the members of
the cabinet. There is no one who has a
higher respect and regard for him than
REPUBLICAN CH.ARGES OF FRAUD.
There was a scene of considerable
activity about Republican headquarters
today. The Republicans charged fraud
in tbe naturalization process, in that
runners from Tammany bring in droves
of Hungarians, Poles and Italians, who
will vote the Democratic ticket, the ex
penses of whom are paid and the issu
ance of their papers facilitated; and it is
also stated that a combination to gauge
applicants for naturalization, and cut
down the Republican naturalized vtte,
has been operating more than three
weeks, with the full knowledge of tbe
officers of the courts. It is charged fur
ther that Republican applications for
naturalization are rejected on insufficient
grounds, after spending from six hours
to two days in an effort to reach the
clerk's desk, behind a crowd of Tam

A Virginia Sensation.
Norfolk, Va., Oct. 17. —A sensation
Was created in the second congressional
district this evening by the announce
ment that Hon. George E. Boweu, who
served the district for two terms in con
gress, and who was regularly nominated
by tbe Republicans, had withdrawn
from the contest. This action is the
result of a decision recently reached
by the national Republican con
gressional committee, through the efforts
of General Mahone. Tbe Republicans
of the district are fnrious at tbe inter
ference, and it is believed tbat no satis
factory nomination can be made now.

THE RESULT OF A HOAX.
SANTE FE TELEGRAFRER9 TAKE A
The Business of the Entire System
Brought to a Standstill by a
Forged Order to Strike.
The Joker Fired.
Topeka, Kan., Oct. 17.—The great
strike of the telegraphers on the Santa
Fe system, which began this morning,
was all the result of a hoax. The oper
ators were informed by Chief Ramsay
tonight that the order directing them to
strike was a forgery, and instructing
them to return at once to their posi
tions. The operators immediately re
turned to their keys, and the work of
straightening out the tangle caused by
the strike began.
Operator Baker, at Dodge City, after
reading the account of the strike on the
Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe divisions
of the Santa Fe system, thought be
wou'd play a joke upon the manager of
his office, and wrote out a message order
ing a etrike, and signed Chief Ramsey's
name thereto, and laid it on the man
ager's desk. Manager Sweet after read
ing it, immediately repeated the mes
sage to the next station. Within fifty
minutes it was received by every opera
tor on the system, and fifteen minutes
later, every one struck.
Baker is doubtlAsß the only man who
i got any fun out of the joke, for it was a
I most serious business tor the Santa Fe
road and the operators generally. It
was not until 7 o'clock this evening that
Chief Ramsay was put iv pos
session of the facts, and he
immediately ordered the men back
to work. During the day the entire sys
tem from Chicago to the Pacific Coast,
and from Kansas City to G - Weston, was
practically tied up, over 2,000 operators
being idle The only man who re
mained at bis post was the operator
at Barclay, Kan., who says he knew the
order was a hoax. The losb to tbe com
pany is very great, while tbe only bene
fit to the operators is in showing the
perfect manner in which they are organ

THE BI) GRANDE STRIKE.
Denver, Colo., Oot. 17.—The strike of
engineers, conductors and trainmen on
the second and third divisions of the
Denver and Rio Grande railway re
mains in almost the same condition as
last night. Business on the divisions
is a'most at a standstill, and
the effects of the strike are felt along the
line. The men on the first and fourth
divitions are still at work, and it is
learned the conductors and engineers on
these divisions will not strike unless
forced to do so by their superior officers.
Chairman Vickery, of the Order of
Railway Telegraphers said today tbat
unless a settlement of the trainmen's
strike was made, the telegraphers on the
Rio Grand would all come out. Tbe
strikers are peaceable and no disturb
ance has occurred.
Trains are sent out from here, but go
only to Pueblo and Canon City. No
trains are yet crossing Marshall pass, or
running on either of the lines between
Salida and Grand Junction. All busi

from Pueblo via Las Vegas pass. Pas

Galveston, Tex., Oct. 17.—Promptly
at 7 o'clock, Sunday evening, almost
every operator and station agent
of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa

company to comply with the demand
for $60 monthly m iximum pay, instead
of 150, with 12 hours to constitute a

He Wrecked His Father's House With
Leadville, Colo., Oct.. 17. —Herman
Truuim, the 18 year-old son of A. 8.
Truman, with several companions, se
cured 200 pounds of giant powder and
placed it in a small mine near his
father's residence. Tbe intention was to
kill the boy's father, mother and little
brother, against whom he had a fancied
grudge. The powder was exploded by
a long fuse, and Truman's resi
dence, as well as that of
Peter Breen, next door, was almost
wrecked. Miraculously none of the in
mates were seriously injured. It was
found tbat the boy had stolen $200 be
longing to his father, aud taken refuge
with a partner in a cave $12 miles from
town. Officers have gone to make his
arrest. As Truman is the victim of the
dime novel, and is armed, it is probable
that he will resist. The explosion caused
hundreds of dollars damage. Several
houses must be entirely rebuilt.

A DUAL DISAPPOINTMENT.
Chicago Deprived of Two
The World's Fair Military Pa
rade Will Be a Fiasco,
And Grover Cleveland Will Not At
tend the Dedication.
Tho Ex-President Is Too Sensitive to
Make Political Capital by Taking
Advantage of His Biral's
By the A stored K'ass.
Chicao, o, Oct. 17—-Clamorous e.xpretff'
ion of diav'pointment wae raised today,
over the ofh'cial announcement that the
great r»ilita.*y parade at tbe World's
fair dedication 1 would be confined to tbe
outskirts of tti* city, consisting only of
a short march from Washington p«rk to
the World's fair grounds. While the
managers of the parade declare there
was never intention of parading tbe
down-town streets, there is no doubt
that such an idea was generally enter
tained, and the consensus of opinion this
afternoon was that those responsible for
the arrangements made a great mistake,
which could hardly fail to lead to wide
spread criticism and ill feeling.
United States infantry, cavalry, artil
lery and marines, to the number of 2700
went into camp at the world's fair
grounds today. A larger body of troops
will arrive tomorrow, and os Wednes
day the advance'guard of the militia of
different states will be on the ground,
also, making arrangements for the re
ception of their regiments.
Tbe members of tbe national commis
sion and board of lady managers, as
well as distinguished visitors and hordes
of sight-seers, are pouring into town as
they have never done before. Great ac
tivity was displayed by the merchants
today, in decorating their buildings,
preparatory to the dedication.
CLEVELAND WILL NOT ATTEND.
Grover Cleveland, Mrs. Cleveland and
Baby Ruth will not come to Chicago,
after all. Secretary Culp, of the com
mittee on ceremonies, today received the
following letter from Mr. Cleveland:
"My response to your courteous invi
tation to attend tbe dedication ceremo
monies of the world's Columbian expo
sition has been long delayed. I should
be very glad to be present on the inter
esting occasion, and thus show my ap
preciation of its importance, if I could
do so solely aB ex-president of tbe United
States. lam sure, however, that this
is impossible, and I am unwilling to un
dertake tbe trip, which, from beginning
to end, despite all effort on my part,
would be regarded as a political tour
made by a candidate for the presidency.
My general aversion to such a trip is
overwhelmingly increased in this in
stance when I recall the afflictive dis
pensation which detains at the bedside
of a sick wife, another candidate for the
presidency. I have thus frankly stated
the reasons which constrain me to
forego the satisfaction which the ac
ceptance of your invitation would other
wise afford me. I hope, in tbe light of
a considerate and sympathetic senti
ment which ought to be felt by all of
our people, that these considerations be
deemed an abundant justification of ac
tion. Yours truly,
Another report says: The committee
on ceremonies of the world's fair re
ceived a letter from Grover Cleveland,
saying he would not be present at tbe
ceremonies. He had intended to do so,
and the reason for his change of plans
was given in the following sentence from
hie letter: "I may be over sensitive,
and even morbid on the subject, but I
cannot allow myself to take political
advantage of the opportunity afforded
in the sad sickness that keeps President
Harrison away from Chicago."

A Rlow at the Goal Combine.
New York, Oct. 17—Attorney-Gener
al John P. Stockton, of New Jersey,
struck a hard blow today at the Read
ing coal combination. In behalf of the
state, he appeared before the chancellor
in Jereey City, and asked tbat a re
ceiver be appointed to take charge of
the New Jersey Central, the Eastern
and Amboy and the Delaware
and Bound Brock railroad compa
nies, to enforce the chancellor's
injunction against all tbe railroads in
the coal combination in New Jersey.
1 Two informations weie filed, and the
chancellor granted, without hesitation,
tbe prayers in both, and made them
returnable October 27th. The attorney
. genera) filed with the papers a masß of
evidence showing that the temporary
and permanent orders of the court for
bidding increases in the price of coal
' were ignored and violated.
A Question of Jurisdiction.
St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 17.—The man
damus proceedings before Judge Brill,
by which the Democratic state commit
tee seek to compel tbe secretary of state
to place the People's party electors,
whom they have endorsed with other
Democrats, as well as with the Populist
electors on the ballot, came up
for bearing this morning. The entire
argument was on the question of jnris
diction, which was already waived by
the state. When Attorney-General
Clapp was called upon he replied that,
having waived the question of jurisdic
tion, argument was unnecessary, where
upon G. D. O'Brien demanded, as an
elector, to hear from tbe attorney-gen
eral. Clapp maintained that an execu
tive officer was exempt from judicial in
terference in the performance of bis
duties. The court announced that its
decision as to jurisdiction would be ren
dered tomorrow morning.

MICKIOANIZING IS FEKFEOTLY LE
Tho United State* Supreme Court So De
cides, and Thereby Increases Mr.
Clereland's Chances of
Washington, Oct. 17.—The United
States supreme court, by Chief Justice
Fuller, today reaffirmed the judgment
of the Michigan supreme court, uphold
ing the constitutionality of the famous
M iner law, providing for the choice of
presidential electors by congressional
districts, instead of by the etate as a
whole. The court holds that the four
teenth amendment to tbe constitution
of the United States does aot limit the
right of a state to fix the mode of choos
It is conceded that the effect of the
decision will be to give part, at least, of
the Michigan electoral vote to Cleve
The opinion is unanimous.
Chief Justice Fuller, in announcing;
the conclusion of the court, eaid the an
nouncement was made at, this time, be
cause of the exigency suggested by
counsel requiring early action. Here
after the court won id file an opinion
setting forth more fully the grounds ott
which it decided the case.
On tbe question of jurisdiction, which
point the Democrats waived, the chief
justice said the court ruled that under
section 709, revised statutes, it had
jurisdiction. The chief justice said, fur
ther, that the court ruled, in view of the
language of the clause of the constitu
tion giving to state legislatures the right
to determine the method of choosing
ing presidential electors, and contem
poraneous construction, that it cannot
be held invalid for want of power in a
state legislature to paBS such a law,
adding that the clause affected in the
first section, article 2, of tbe constitu
tion, was not changed by the fourteenth
amendment, and tbe law was not ob
noxious to that amendment.
Attorney-General Miller moved for a
writ of certiorari before the supreme
court, to bring the case of the United l
States against the steamship Itata be
fore the court. The lower couit decided
against the right of the United States to
seize the Itata, and a speedy determina
tion of the question by the highest court
The* supreme court adjourned thie
afternoon until Monday, to permit the
justices to attend the dedicatory exer
cises at Chicago.
