Cnrr vt.t iu.., July Iii.fore the
C'juvctitiou met this nioruitis the fueling
about the hotel corridors was that Til
den's heir had drawn nearer the jioul.
The' iiifporttrrs of Clevc-lauil were in huh
spirits and coiiiidetit, while tin; f.ict s of
the opposition and their tones in conver
sation betokened ill-concea'cd anxiety.
The fud that the combined opposiijon
failed to carry its point against the Cleve
land forces h id not been without its ef,
feU. It was clear that Cleveland had
been ttrensthened, tue field weakened
and Tammany humiliated.
I.xst niyht was one of work, scheme
and combination. The Cleveland men
look the lead. Though jubilant uad con
fident, they relaxed no effort, The lare
corps of trained workers watched every
comer, and made every possible point.
Men were scut to every doubtful delega
tion. They labored with the reat lever
ai;e of jicuiiir.g victory In their lunula
and ijairn their work bore poijd results,
Tliis mornint; the field appeared as
badly scattered as ever before, iifforts
were male at combination and con
centration, but without result so far as
could bo discovered. The combination
of Dayard and Melbuiald was earnestly
advocated by friends of tiie former,
but it was pronounced a weak
suncstion. The two men draw
their sttronh from the same source
the South aud the revenue reform
element. Besides, when McDonald
tlrops his aspirations for first place and
seeks second, he kuows'of a more prom
ising yoke-mate than Iiayard. A propo
sition to make the ticket McDonald and
Iiayard is prevented by the .Senator's un
willingness to take second place.
Nobody seems to want anything to do
with Uutlcr and his name w is not ser-itiii-ly
Field is without strength, and the indi
cations are his name wiil not be put for
ward at all.
Kaudall is out of the question in this
convention, and lloadly is a natural tail
to the Cleveland kite. The most promis
ing combination is McDonald aud Slo
cum, but its weakness is Soeiim's ina
bliity to deliver any votes. His Brook
lyn friends uecessarily abandoned him
when they joined the Cleveland ranks.
McDonald can not tjather enough strensrtli
to win without an advantageous alliance,
ami his Iudia.na friends seek oue in vain.
For a time it looked as though Tnurmaa
had the best chance of defeatlus Cleve
land, as tnu only man upon whom tho
field could concentrate, lie is every
where admired and respected. Califor
nia w ill present him, aud if Ohio should
give him solid indorsement, the race
would be between Cleveland and tho
Uhioan. Thurman is strong everw where,
save in his own Slate. His friends are not
ou the "inside," though they nave made
great gains this Summer.
Governor lloally is a candidate and
will be presented by Ohio, with twenty
seven votes to back him.
There was renewed talk last night of
McLean joining Thurman, In which eveut
the ex-Senator might get a majority of
the delegation, but the editor from Cin
cinnati assures his colleagues that he is
for lloadly, aud the Governor's managers
express confidence In his fidelity. It was
whispered about, but stoutly denied, that
JlcLeau realizes the stragetie Importance
of his position and is tempted to make
tin: jump to Thurman, hut the boom re
ceived a set back when twenty-seven
Ohio delegates inetin caucus and decided
to support J loudly.
In the field of anti-Cleveland possibili
ties Thurman cut more of a figure last
night and this morning, so far as tho
managers were concerned, than MeDou
aid or Bayard. Cincinnati was some
thing of a storm center. Johu K. Thomp
son and other Thurman men worked
hard to get up anything to beat the Cleve
Bayard has developed much greater
strength thau McDonald, ami is the leader
of the opposition. .Nearly all his votes
arc from the South. The South has ex
hibited a teudency to concentrate ou
Bayard, as a chance to get another South
ern man for l'icsidcnt. Among them
selves the Thurtuuu managers say Bayard
c.inuot be nominated, but are constantly
making appeals to his followers to stand
firm. Their scheme is said to be to uso
Bayard to hold the South long enough
to break Cleveland down, when they
think Thurman would bo the choice.
ftui porters A the New Yorker mabi'ab)
that the conviction Is spreading among
the southerners that Bayard can not be
nominated, and the labors of tho Cleve
land corps are bearing ft.'.t. The ex
tent to whit h Cleveland's vote Is Indicat
ed by the vote on the unit nilo yesterday
has received a full share of consideration.
Some delegates opposed to Cleveland
voted to sustain the rule, and vice versa;
but the variations are believed to about
offset each other. Impartial estimates
place the Governor's r-trenath as follows:
Alabama o, Arkansas 1 1, Colorado 3, Con
necticut 11, Florida x, Georgia M,
Illinois 21, Iowa Kansas 1.,
Kentucky -, Louisiana 1, Maine 1-,
Maryland l't, Massachusetts 5, Michigan
M, Minnesota H, Missouri Ut, Nebraska
New Hampshire , New Jersey i, New
York 7, North Carolina It, Oregon !,
Iltiodc Island f, South Carolina , Ten
nessee J, Texas 1, Vermont 8, Virginia
is, West Virginia m, Wisconsin 17. Total
4l'I. Of the reinaiuins !17 votes, Iiayard
has about l:So, McDonald SO, Kaudall 7",
Thurman 4', lloadly :;, Butler :i0. II
Cleveland receives lu'.l vot-s on first bal
lot he will lack 11J of the necessary two
thirds. The two-thirds rule is not likely to be
disturbed. Should the Cleveland man
agers manipulate the Committee on Hu es
so that the Convention could he led to
adopt such rules as would rwiit a ma
jority vote to abolish the two-thirds rule,
they could probablv II ml the majority to
do it with. But it 'is believed they will
not take any such a dangerous couise.
The opposition's hope is in Cleveland's
inability to aet the two-thirds, aud they
will not sock to disturb the rule.
"Mentor," of the jr-rahl, says : "The
opposition to Cleveland Is in tho same
condition iu most respects as wa9 the op-po-iiion
to Blaine. Cleveland Is the
second choice of delegates first for other
men, as was Blaine. McDonald or lloadly
are in the same Vice-l'residental boat that
Logan sailed iu. The McDonald men view
with alarm the growth of Bayard and the
possible rising of Thurman. The In
ciianans have never lost sight of the
second p'aee, and are still reaching for
It, if nothing better can be found. Thur
iiiati's success would freeze them out.
The party will not risk its all on i hic
and Indiana. Ohio's October vote Is alone
enough to overweigh Thurman. lload
ly does not seek first place, but does want
second. Manning is i laying lloadly
against McDonald. The latter will have
to jump quick if he gets into the Cleve
land CMinp ahea I of the Ohioan.
Bandall has the Presidential fever in
an airgravutt d Ljrm, but his managers
arc convinced he stands no chance. One
of tin m, a Pennsylvania Congressman,
says Uaadall's tight is tariff.not the Pres
idency. He remains in the field only to
ccure vindication by the absence of the
word 'on.y' from the tiriff plank. He Is
a TiMen man, who, but for the tariff
would have been where Cleveland is to
day. He w ill get out of Cleveland's way
iu due time. Two-thirds of th Pennsyl
vania vote wiil go to the New Yorker. "
Ex-Mayor Prince, of Boston, a mem
ber of the Tiiden coterie, has under
mined Butler iu Massachusetts, and
Butler can not stand more than one
ballot, when a good part of Massa
chusetts will join in the Tiiden pro
gramme. Not more than two ballots are
probable. Possibly only one will be
taken. At tho end of the first changes
will begin, and no one need be surprised
to see Ohio and Indiana run a race as to
which can be the ilrst to get there.
All the indications of the hour are
that if Cleveland has ii votes to be
gin with, the necessary Klj more will be
quickly drawn from :iio, Indiana, Ken
tucky, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.
The opposition lacks coherency of
plan, and is without ability to con
centrate, unless it be upon Thurman, and
totrolsa gi nt-ral fear of risking every
thing upon Ohio's October vote. The
Hold may yet lie sutlicic.tly oig inied to
fight for delay, and hold more thau a
third from the lavorite long enough to
break him down, but it is improvable.
Two out of three of the inilueiitial work
ers are for Cleveland. Individual seli
luterest is a factor in many delegations
and tiie New Yorker's generals know
where to 11 ml and how to satisfy it, as
they hive satisfied Kings County and
many more counties and men besides. A
prospective winner's popularity always
grows rapidly. Back of it all is the
magic power of the palsied sage of Grey-stout-.
His whisper has been heard from
Maine to Oregon.'1
The opposition say the vote on the unit
rule does not justify the rejoicing of the
Cleveland men over their so-called great
victory. J. P. Frenzel, who is the chief
manager of the .McDonald campaign, said
"We don't ngard the vote on the
amendment of Grady as a test of Cleve
land's strength. Perhaps of those who
voted against the amendment 3'J were
for Cleveland. The others voted for the
unit, rule simply because Tammanv op
posed it. The light iu the New'York
delegation made one thing clear, and that
was that no New York man now men
tioned for the nomination can carrv New
York. Thou w hat is to be done? Simply
this! Nominate a man who can carry In
diana and New York. Indiana is just as
Important and necessary to tho Democ
racy as New York. The man who can
cany these two States is well known. He
is Joseph E. McDonald. We know that
he can curry Iudiana, and neither the
Cleveland men nor the Tammany men say
that he can't carry New York. We have
entered on an aggressive campaign and
we Intend to keep it up until
McDonald is nominated. He Is a man
with a spotless record and a National
reputation. He is as popular on the Pa
cific coast as Blaine, for his course on the
Chinese question has been Iu favor of the
Interests of America. No labor uuion
will oppose him, for he is the friend of
labor. We intend to put him right to the
front, and keep him there until he is nom
inated and elected."
Neither the Bayard men, tiie Thurman
men nor the Butler men would admit
that the vote on Grady's proportion In
the Convention was a test of Cleveland's
strength. They claim that many voted
to sustain the uult rule who would never
under any circumstanstances vote for
Cleveland. Mr. Harris, of Kentucky, who
favors the nomination of Bayard, said
that all the vote amounted to was an em
phatic declaration that the unit rule
should be respected. Ho thought tho
wrangle between the New York delegates
Improved Bayard's chances.
The Tammany delegates were not in
clined to talk, further than to protest
their thin conviction that If Cleveland
was nominated he could uot carry New
John Kelly and General Butler are
hourly receiving telegrams from Labor
Unions aud Democratic organisations
of New York protesting against tho nom
ination of Governor Cleveland. The as
sertion ws rcltermtad this morn lug that
tho tight over the unit rule was not

It was generally sufrposod that It
would bo renewed nt an fifty ptomcnt.
and would be niic of the prim. iplo features
Cf the Convention. Jt was said that
Butler would bu the leader in tho light.
The announcement was made this morn
ing that Butler's name would not bo pre
sented to the Convention. A M isiachu
setts (h h gate smiled sardonically when
the subject was broached, but said: "I
(;iiess the rumor Is about right."
It was a inatbr of common gossip In
the Delaware headquarters that Butler
had decided t, withdraw, and that Bav
ard would so ,m. llt lt,;lst o0 out o(
L'svotis. J. L. Woolcott, of Delaware,
said that he could not see how It was
possible for many of them to go to Cleve
land, coining as they did from a labor
State, and it would not surprise him if
the solid vole wis cast for Bavar I. Gen
eral linger a. Piyor admitted tho truth
of the rumor.
"Do you mean that he is uot a candi
date any longer," he was asked.
"I do not wish to be understood as
meaning any -uch thing. 1 mean just
what I say. His name will probably not
be presented at the opening stages. What
may occur later is another matter."
" 1 hen what will Massachusetts do with
"It will eat it for Senator Bavard; at
least that h tnv impies-..n. Kecobect,
this is only an i. u of mine, you know."
Butler's reported m-tiijn aroused great
curiosity. Few be.ievo Butler gives up
the light, and there Is a general de-sire to
know the fuli meaning of his action. The
most generally advanced theory Is that
Butler, with his usual shrewdness, is
taking this course to conciliatethe South,
and that it is the outcome oi a compact
with Mr. Kelly, the object being to stave
off the nomination of Cleveland.
General Butler was asked if he in
tended to go into tho Convention to
day, and he said:
"Certainly I shall go in. I only stayed
out yesterday to write a platform."
"Wa-j wi.l ii'uuluatu you?-'
"l or v n I"
"Oh! I am going into the Convention
as a delegate Going in as a Presiden
tial candidate is another thing alto
gether. I've nothing to say about that."
' "ie of the stories is that' General But
ler expects to run now as a third candi
date, and that the result wiil be that the
election of President will be thrown into
the Hon s0 (,f Kcprcst. ntatives, in w hich
case he hopes to be the choice.
opinions differ as to the action likely
to be tak.-u by the Platform Committee,
but it is agreed that the rival tariff
factious will settle their differences in
the committee and render a report
calcu'ated to prevent discussion in the
Convent ion, which might endanger the
party's chances of succe-s.
Cinc.Mio, III., July '..Atmospheri
cally, the second day of the Democratic
National Convention opens no better than
the first. Bain has been falling since an
early hour this morning, and the sky Is
still of a h adeii hue and the lake, on the
edge of which the Convention Hall is
situated, Is shrouded in a Loudon fog.
Still the urd r of the Democratic
hosts is neither chilled or dampened.
The crowds around the hotels are as
large aud as noisy as though nature were
In ner most pleasant mood, aud at this
writing, half unhour before the time for
reassembling the spectators' galleries are
packed, and many of the delegates are In
their scats. It is without doubt to be a
day of hard work, of tinkering and dick

far off as now, the leader of the Demo

Since eight o'clock it is claimed that
Thtiriiiau's stook has visibly improved,
iud that the chances of a stroke of 1 ight
uiug reaching the red bandanna are more
favorable than ever. Tho Cleveland men
however are as confident as ever.
The Committees on llesolutions and

though there Is a great craning of necks,
an attempt to get up a "Three times

calls over to the United Press table that
the Committee on Credentials is ready to
