The contest was between 1be Repub
licans of the state who believed that
Senator Shelby M. Cullom should have
tit en honored as the standard bearer in
the presidential contest by the veople
of this state on the one hand, and the
Republicans who favored McKinley on
the other. Arrayed on the side of Sen
ator Cnllom was that organization
known 'is the Cook county machine,
and a large number of the leading pol
iticians and statesmen of Jllinofs. With
him were veteran politicians who have
in years gone by had many a bat-d
rought political contest. They had to
aid th em one of the most perfect po
litical organizations that has ever been
formed In this state, but all their plans
went wrong to-day, and while Senator
Cullom and his backe rs mot with de
feat, they met it gracefully and an
nounced their determination to lend
their siucerest and heartiest co-opera
tic for the election of Maj. McKluley
to the highest office within the gift of
the people of the United States. The
battle was not a lo ng one. It lasted
only an hour, but in that time the
struggle was one of the hardest ev er
,made in a state convention. The can
didates for state offices were all nomi
nated, with the exception of the trus
tees for the state university, before
resolutions Instructing the delegates
at large to the national convention
were brought up. This was in accord
nuce with an agreement reached be
tween the advocates of Cullom and
McKlnley. The 'irst shot was fired by
a Cullom man in the sha pe of a resolu
tion Instructing the national delegat es
at large from this state to support him
at tho St. Louis convention. A soon
as Senator Cullom's name was men
tioned there was wild and enthusiastic
cheering from his friends and follow
ers. But when the amendment substi
tuting the name of McKinley for that
of Senator Cullom was offered, the
outburst of applau se was simply tre
mendous. From this time on Senator
Cullom's friends gave up. They saw
that nothing could stop the determina
tion of the delegates to name McKin
ley as their choice for president.
The state ticket was completed as

the horseshoers of this city, Brooklyn

they are not in a position to make a

Cripple Creek, Colo.. May 1. A fire
which broke out in the Portland hotel
shortly after noon destroyed about all
that was left of Cripple Creek, after
the great conflagration of last Satur
day. Four persons were killed by ex
plosions and at least fourteen injured,
several of them fatally. The flames
to-day spread with groat rapidity and
although strenuous efforts were made
to check the progress of the tire by
blowing tip tho buildings with dyna
mite tbey proved of no avail. The
principal busine ss buildings are in
ruins, and nothing is left over the town
proper except the railroad stations and
a few scattered Louses. The fire raged
fiercely and only died out for lack of
fuel on which to feed.
The origin of the fire appears to have
been purely accidental, though the gen
eral belief is that it was Incendiary.
There has boon talk crediting Satur
day's fire to such origin, and this one
coming so close upon It gives rise to
suspicion. Frank Angel, the Portland
hotel chef, cannot be found. It is re

range blazed up and caught the grease
soaked boards at the hack. A special
policeman shot and killed an unknown
