mOM OUR IIZaULAR CORKESFOKOENT.1
Washington, Juno 20. Hints of a
posstbliiJJg political scandal in tho
near futures Imvo boon dropped this
week liy leiuling silver men. Nn
names aie used and few particulars
are .'"'"'. lnt it is whispered around
Washington that sumo of those who
mo shouting tliu loudest for silver in
public nro plotting in pi i ate to pre
vent thot nomination by tfitj Chicago
convention of a ticket upon which .all
of the Mlver voteis would be willingto
uiiile, nnd it U further whispered that
some senxatiotial denouncements maj
follow; the Chicago convention if these
plotters succeed in getting a ticket put
up that the Populists and siher Re
publicans will refuse to suppoit.
It did not seem possible two months
ago that the Chicago convention could
iitlract llio attention it is now receiv-
ing. It will really decide uhetlier the
presidential campaign shall be squarely
fought between a gold ticket and a
silver ticket, or whether tlieie shall bu
a tiiangular fight, with all the advan
tages on the side of the gold ticket.
It does not seem to make thu slightest
diUTeieiicu to those who aru lighting to
pievcnt the convention adopting a free
silver platfoim and nominatiuga silver
ticket that nearly two-thirds of Un
delegates to tho convention have al-
leady declared themselves to be silver
men. This is not complimentary to
anybody concerned, but it is strictly
President Cleveland ismakiuga pet-
sonal attempt to get the Southern dele-
gales lo the National Convention to
abandon the idea of voting for a free'
coinage platform. He is sending out
huge numbers of two peisonal letters.
One of them is addtessid to Southern
men of prominence whom he has met,
appealing to them to give their influ
ence toward pievelitiug the defeat of
the administtatiou by its own paity
convention. This letter goes iu strong
on Southern sentiment and gratitude,
and recites what the writer has done
for the South during his two terms,
mentioning among oilier favois be
stowed on the South live cabinet posi
tions, two associate justices of the
United States Supiemu Court and twu
Ambassadois. The other letter is
being sent to business meu in New
Yolk and other Kastern cities who
hae intimate financial relatiolis with
the South. Iu It these Eastern cap
italists aru urged to notify their South
ern patrons tli.it if jhe Southern dele-
gales ro Chicago persist iu oiing for
the free coinage of siher they need not
ask for further financial aid iu their
business euteipiises fiom isteru cap
italists, and that when their outstand
ing obligations are due no fin tiler ex
tension of time will be given them,
but they will be icquired to settle or
mi Iter the consequences. It remains
to be hcen what will be the effect of
iheso two lemarkable letters.
The silver meu hi e not allowing their
opponents lo do all the fighting. They
me going to );tvu their representative
men meet in Chicago next week, a
week ahead of the convention, foi the
express put pose of making an iron-clad
piogrammefor the couvenrion which
cannot possibly he upset. The anti
silver leaders are nlso going to Chicago
next week, and the aute-Couveution
contest piomises to he quite as inter
esting as that which will occur iu the
convention itself, and may really settle
iu advance lust what tho conveurtou,
will do. Everybody iu Washington,
Republicans, Democrats and Populists
alike, are engaged iu discussing the
possibilities and probabilities of the
convention, and there is the widest
possible difference of opinions as to
wli.u the outcome will be. That Sen
ator Teller will not he the nominee
seems to be one of Iho few cerinlutics.

Those who said bofore Congress ad
journed that President Cleveland had
a war scare up his sleeve which ho
would produce whenever ho thought it
expedient to do so nro now more than
ever convinced that they were right.
Tho premature publication of tho na
ture of the report winch General Fit 7,
Lee, our consul general to Cuba, has
made lo the President upon the condi
tion of a flairs in Cuba is what con
vinced them. It is argued that this
repot t will furnish a basis for the
president to act upon, if he is so dis
posed, and that if he lakes any action
favoraldc to the Cubans Spain will lie
compelled by public opinion, which is
already much influenced against ns, to
declare war against the United
Statts. Meanwhile Geiieial Fitz Lee
is iu diplomatic hot water. He wro'e
a letter containing very decided opin
ions to a relative, who made the mis
take of show ing It to a newspaper man.
Consequently tho Spanish minister
wauls his official scalp, and according
to diplomatic ethics lie is entitled to
it, but whether he will get it is alto
gether another thing.

DASTARDLY, DEVILISH DEED.
A Presoott Saloon Blown Up With
An Old Ilckldent of Flagstaff Ar
rested, Jealousy Heine the Sup
posed .Mollre of the Crime.
Sunday night witnessed at Prescott
as fearful and iuhuraau an exhibition
of man's jealousy and hate as ever dis
graced the darker ages. About 9:40
o'clock, while the Cabiuct saloon was
crowded, some drinking, some gamb
ling and others iu the restaurant at the
rear of the saloon, a terrific explosion
took place, almost demolishing the
lestatirnut and severely, injuring one
of the two nymphs dn pave who were
in there, together with the Chinese
cook, besides creating sad havoc gen
erally thioiighout the saloon and caus
ing a wild comiuoiiou and consterna
tion in the town.
Some months ago a wedding took
place in Flagstaff that those "in the
know" did not believe would turn out
well or happily. William H. Binkley
became infatuated with BetlhaElchler.
Even iheu her leputation was not of
the best, but nothing daunted, Binkley
resolved to marry her. iu the hope that
he might reclaim her and turn her
fiom her evil courses. Vain hope; too
quickly ho was undeceived.
What the lives of this wretched pair
have been sinco they left Flagstaff no
one seems to know wilh certainty, but
from the repoits which appeared in
connection wilh Sunday night's das
tatdlydeed. Beitha has been going
fiom bad to worso until her moral
degradation was complete. Love and
jealousy ale said to bo inseparable, bui
whether love had any thing to do with
the make-up of Binkley, it is certain
that he was very jealous, ami supi.
clou was directed to him as the author
of the infernal project which might
have sent many humlreds to their last
acjotiut without a moment's warning.
The inhuman deed was planned with
gieat uicety, but fortunately failed iu
dealing out the death aud destruction
it was intended to. A great quautity
of dynamite or giant powder was
placed under the floor of the restau
rant, and when the en ing wife and her
companions wcro iu the restaurant the
mine was sprung, the dealh-dealiug
explosive lesounded with atremuudous
crash, and all was confusion. To the
fact ihat a coveilug of -thick linoleum
was on the floor of the restaurant is
ascribed the miiaculous escape of the
occupants of that portion of the
