The Arthur organs are charging along the
line that the Democrats are anxiously seeking
to promote the nomination of Blame, among
other things alledging that he has been and
still is grossly abused by a hostile Republican
faction. On the other hand the B:aine pa

delegates to Chicago, while the Democratic
districts send Arthur delegates. The fact is
there is no Democratic excitement in regard

truth and fact McKinley never had a shadow

THE TIDE VELOI'MEXT.
The charges of Fish that he was led by the
direct assertions of Gen. Grant to invest his
money and his confidence in the firm of
Grant & Ward, is a fresh and very sensa
tional development in the now famous case.
According to Fish, he received letters from
the General in which be announced that he
waa> a general partner in the firm of Grant &
Ward, that the business was a legitimate one,
and that the firm was dealing in government
contracts. On the strength of this
assurance, Mr. Fish says that he
was induced to take an interest
in the firm and to discount 'its
paper without the ordinary precaution as to
It is very difficult to reach a just judgment
as to this new development. It may not be
true that Fish has or ever had any letters
from Grant which broadly and unequivocal
ly endorsed the integrity of the firm of Grant
& Ward and stated that it was dealing in
government contracts. No ripe conclusion
can be reached until these letters are
produced and their authenticity established
beyond a doubt. One may suppose that
they are produced and that they do establish
all that Fish asserted and then what?
It will not . then be proved that
& Grant intended to say all that the let
ters contained; or meant any more than that
it was his belief that the firm was all right
and was dealing in government contracts.
The General may have been told by Ward, or
his son that the business of the firm was a
legitimate one, and relying on their word,
he may have given the assurance that Fish
claims to have bad. To be sure, while this
would save the honesty of the General, it
would be a terrible impeachment of his god
sense. It would be a substantial admission
that he is an inexcusable simpleton in or
dinary matters, but even this conclusion is
preferable to the conclusion that be is dis
honest. ': In bis case at least, the country
will prefer to believe that he is a fool, rather
than a knave.
As the country is unable to pass judgment
on the affair in its present undeveloped state,
it will have to wait the further development
of the facts. It is a painfui uncertainty, al
though the people will, as a general thing,
prefer not to doubt Grant's honesty, what
ever else they may be forced to conclude in
regard to his participation in the brokerage
business. He is a man who is easily in
fluenced, if the proper power
be brought to bear on him.
He has never entirely recovered from the
villainous influence with which he was sur
rounded when he was President. He prob
ably always meant to be honest, but bis
judgment was obscured, he was swayed by
bad advisers, and now, as then, he may
have been unwittingly led into the meshes
spread by knavish operators.

Ciiicaoo, May 27.—Faint indications of the
coming fight in the Republican camp begin to be
apparent to the watchful observer, though any
one ignorant of the fact that by a week from to
night the preliminary organization of the great
convention will have been completed in this city,
would hardly find sufficient indications in the
comparatively quiet corridors of the hotels, to
lead to a belief that anything of unusual moment
was about to happen, It is but the lull before
the storm, however, and by to-morrow or next
day the scene will be vastly changed. Then will
the delegates begin to pour in—by twos and threes
by delegations and by car loads—and the wire
pulling, hobnobbing, interviewing and button
holing will presage in language that he who runs
may read the near approach of a great political
event. The hotels will swarm like bee hives and
the air be filled with assertions and counter
assertions as to the respective strength of the
various candidates. There will be a great deal of
positiveness about these assertions, and the sim
ple faith of the Blame and Arthur men in the
success of the candidate of their choice will be
touching and would convince the most skeptical
were it not a matter of impossibility for more
than one to be elected. It will also be noticeable,
however, that the betting men of the rival
factions will be more liberal in hazarding their
opinions than their money and that the truly wise
will take the field against the favorites.
There are not enough delegates here yet to
give, by their talk, any further clue to the re
spective strength of the leading delegates than
indicated in dispatches heretofore published in
HOW THEY STAND.
There are indications of a Blame boom which
will receive an impetus next Saturday morning,
when the Pacific coast delegates will arrive in a
six o'clock train which is now coming across the
continent with banners announcing that the dele
gates are for "Blame and victory." There is no
doubt that the arrival of this powerful contingent
from the Pacific coast shouting for Blame will
create considerable enthusiasm for the "plumed
knight." They wili be reinforced probably on
Sunday morning by his friends from New York
and Pennsylvania, aud on Monday by the dele
gates from Minnesota, lowa and Kansas.
The Arthur men are in fine feather, and they
seem to think that the influence of the
business men here who are for him combined
with the effect of the meeting in New York will
keep his boom at the height to which it has been
elevated during last two weeks.
The Logan men are saying little but they are
not idle. They hope to hold Logan's forces
solid, compact and unchangeable until Blame and
Arthur "chaw" one another up, and they hope
that when "the break up" comes they will be
able to run in their favorite. liis campaign is in
the competent hands of "Dan" Shepard and
"Long" Jones, who will be reinforced at the end
of the week by Hon. Chauncy I. Filley, of Mis
souri, one of the most courageous and capable
political managers in the country.
John C. New, of Indiana, is understood to be
a mortal enemy of Blame and it is supposed
that ho does nor really love Arthur, bnt as be
tween the two he vastly prefers Arthur. There
are those who think that when the delegates
from Indiana, favorable to Gen. Harrisou get
through voting for him Mr. New would not ob
ject if they went solid for the president. There
is apparently no love between the Harrison and
the Gresham men in Indiana, and if the Harri
son men could be corraled for Arthur anl it was
found he could not run, the entire Indiana dele
gation might then be swung? for Gresham. In
fact Gresham is just now regarded as the most
likely dark horse.
"Mr. David Allerton, who is secretary of the
New York Independent organization arrived, last
night, and says that the Independents do not
want either Arthur or Blame, urging in support
the statement that neither of them can carry
New York. It is generally understood that Sen
tor Edmunds is the choice of the Independents
represented by Mr. Allerton, and that if they
cannot nominate him, they will probably transfer
as many of his votes as they can control to Gen
eral Gresham. Since his arrival Mr. Allerton
has been in consultation with the Chicago Inde
pendents favorable to Edmunds represented by
Mr. N. K. Fab-bank, Mr. Franklin MacVeash,
General A. C. McClung, Mr. E. G. Keith and
others. Geo. William Curtis, Carl Schurz and
other distinguished Independents from New
York, are expected in a day or two to take
charge of the F.dmunds and Gresham booms."
One of the peculiarities that has thus far been
exhibited is the entire absence of anything like
candidates, headquarters. When one asks for
the Arthur or Blame headquarters at any of the
hotels, the reply that there are none is obtained.
A large majority of the delegates will be quar
tered at the Grand Pacific hotel and the Palmer
house. Each state has its headquarters in the
parlors of those hotels, but for the first time in
twenty years there is no place that can be said to
be run in the interest of any candidate. Four
years ago it was entirely different. The friends
of Blame, Grant, Sherman and the others, all had
special headquarters, into which the delegates
were taken as fast as they arrived. Four years
ago the Xew York headquarters were regarded
as the abiding place of the Grant boom, with 11
--lin- to aid her in caring for the general' s in
terests : This year that delegation is divided
among the candidates and the parlors and 100
rooniß that have been engaged will be used in the
interest of them all. At the last convention John
Sherman's headquarters were in the appellate
court rooms. At this convention that roem will
be used as the headquarters of the Pennsylvania
delegation, which is divided between Arthur and
The only places now engaged which can in any
way bo regarded as candidates' headquarters are
the parlors of the Illinois delegation at the Grand
Pacific, which will be the home of Logan's can
vass aud parlor Zat the Palmer house where
Collector Spaulding will receive the friends of
President Arthur. The New York Republican
conference committee headed by George Wm.
Curtis and Gen. Barlow will have headquarters
in club room Aat the Grand Pacific. At the
Grand Pacific hotel no special rooms have been
engaged by leading Republicans.
The system by which the delegates to the re
publican convention will be roomed at their ho
tels will be different this year from what it was
four years ago. It will be more satisfactory and
there will be less confusion and crowding. Four
years ago the delegates came in pell mell and
were assigned to rooms as best the tired and
overwrought clerks could do it. Some New
York delegates and Maine men found themselves
separated from their friends and bnnking with
men from Florida. This year every delegate
from each state will have as a bed
or room fellow a man from his own
state Instead of asking the clerk when he ar
rives what room he is to have, it has been fixed
so that a delegate when he lays his grip on the
hotel counter will have the number of his room
in his hand. He will present the number, it will
be set down by the clerk opposite his name and
all the hotel has to do is to show him to his
This arrangement was made by allotting off a
| certain nmnber of rooms to each state, according
to the number of delegates expected. Then the
nnmbers were sent to the chairmen of
the delegations and by them distributed to
the delegates. As a consequence the hotels are
now in ignorance of the number of the room any
delegate is going to have. They only know that
Illinois or Indiana has twenty or fifteen rooms,
bnt which number Mr. Wilhm has or which Mr.
Thompson they do not know.
The delegates will be doubled, tripled, and
j. quadrupled also, so that two, three or four men
may occupy the same room. There are a few
men whose rooms have been definitely settled.

The sub committee of the National Republican
committee and the local committee of arrange
ments visited the exposition hall this morning.
There were present John C. New, chairman of
the sub-committee, Powell Clayton, of Arkansas,
and J. A. Martin, of Kansas, members of the
sub-committee, J. 11. Stone, of
Michigan, and A. 11. Beatty, of Montana,
members of the national committee, S. B. Ray
moiid, chairman, and W. K. Sullivan, secretary
of the Chicago committee of arrangements; Col.
James A. Sexton, sergeant-at-arms of the con
vention; William Henry Smith, general agent of
the Associated Press, and Walter Neef, the local
manager; C. H. Summers, the electrician of the
Western Union Telegraph company, who will
take charge of the telegraph arrangements for
that company dnring the convention aud the
Democratic convention. The scene presented
by the hall as the committee entered the Adams
street entrance was with a few exceptions as it
will be on the opening day of the con
vention. Its extent and breadth con
vey the idea of immensity. The
apparently never ending rows of chairs, the im
mense sounding board, the large boxes in either
side of the hall and the stage which 6eates 1,400
people, contribute to the vastness of the view.
The first public rehearsal of the musical festi
val last night left the hall nearly complete. The
only thing which will have to be changed for the
convention is the arrangement of chairs in front
of the stage. The sub-committee and the local
committee set to work on this at once. They
found that six rows of chairs would have to
be removed to make way for thirty tables
for the press. There will be tables
for 300 reporters,and 300 more seats for the press
without tables. A platform will also have to be
erected, and the press chairs will be brought on
a level with the floor of the officers' Btage. As
the hall now stands the officers of the convention
and invited guests will occupy 1,400 seats at the
north end of the hall, then the press tables will
follow, and near to them the delegates and alter
nates. Aisles on either side of the delegates'
aud alternates' seats separate them from the ex
tra press seats and private boxes. The latter
are painted red. The boxes num
ber thirty-six on each side and
will hold ten persons each. This makes atotal
of 720 box seats. Proceeding south in the the
hail, a railing separates the delegates and alter
nates from the general public. After 2,000 seats
isre distributed to the holders of stage tickets
and 2,000 to the delegates and alternates there
will be 9,000 seats for the general pnbltc, this
makes a total of 13,000. This nnmber includes
the 1,500 seats in each gallery, the private boxes
and the flies.
A SHARP TRICK.
This morning when the committee
reached the hall they made a
dscovery which caused some comment.
They found that the directors of the building
who applied for 600 seats and were respectfully
refused, had surreptitiously constructed plat
forms for about 100 seats up in the west fly of
the building. Access is obtained by a stairway
leading to the treasurer's office outside of the
hall proper so that the committee will make no
objection. One out of town member laughed
when he was told what the seats were for.
"That is a sample of Chicago gall" said he,
and I suppose it goes?"
The exits for the masses are at the south
end of the building. Delegates aud
"distinguished" guests enter by doors near the
north end. Delegates will not come in contact
with the masses at all, high railings separating
them and tickets indicating their right to dele
Mr. New, of the committee, said that as to the
admission of contesting delegations he presumed
they would be permitted in on a footing with
the other delegates, and if the committee on
credentials choose to dispossess them they could
A member of the committee measured the hall
to-day, aud found it was exactly 30 feet less in
length than the hall of lbßo,
But what it lacks in length is partly made up in
the arrangement of chairs. They are placed
closer than in 18S0 and are a little smaller. The
only trouble to be apprehended is that the seats
will not be wide enough, and there will be a great
deal of crowding.
A number of committemen visited the hall at
the rehearsal last night and tested its acoustics.
They are immeasurably superior to those of 1880.
Four years ago the echo was so strong as to
drown the voices of speakers. This year there
is no echo and a man at the extremest point of
the south end can hear the speaker well. The
chorus of the festival last night experienced a
great deal of heat and closeness. To-day this
was remedied by boring holes in the sounding
board to make ventilation.
THINKS IT'S ARTHUR.
"I teli you President Arthur is going to be the
nominee of the Republican convention," said the
Hon. Webster Flanagan, of Texas, to the Globe
correspondent in the rotunda of the Sherman
house this afternoon. "Yes sir," continued Mr.
Flanagan, "the Republican party with Chester
A. Arthur as their presidential nominee will
aweep the country from Maine to California and
Minnesota to Texas. Mark my prediction and
I think I know what lam saying. When the
convention begins balloting the people will be
surprised at the figures which the tally sheet will
Ehow for Mr. Arthur."
"But how about the reported combinations
which are said to be on the tap is at Washington
betwen the Blaine-Logan-Allison followers and
leaders?" was asked the gentleman from Texas.
"Oh that is of no consequence, if really true,
and I will tell you why. In the first place, Blame
is not going to enter into any combination to
bring defeat upon himself. He is too shrewd a
politician for that, and the second place, Blame
will discover after the first ballot that Arthur is
away ahead and that he (Blame) will not be able
to turn over any votes for any person to beat
"What do you hear from the Texas delegation."
"Well, they wil be along by Friday evening.
The Texas delegation is all right and our head
quarters will be here in the Sherman house.
Until they arrive I would rather prefer not to
speak for them but when they do come, you will
find them as intelligent and level headed a body
of representative men as ever attended a presi
dential convention. By the way, there comes
long John Wentworth, I tell you I fought mighty
hard for him four years ago to have him given a
seat in the conveution. I'll bet Wentworth is as
good a poliitical prophet as can be found and he

Grant and Conkling; Leaning Towards
Itluinc as Preferable to Arthur.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Washington, May 2".—There has been a
plethora of national politics discussed today and
excitement is largely on the increase. Go where
you will the question is propounded on every
side, who will be the nominee at Chicago? Who
is to be the man? Few Republicans care to com
mit themselves in this confused condition of
public opinion and the answer "I am for the
nominee and hope he will be the best man to
elect" is more frequently heard than any other.
Men who were out-spoken for Blaiue yesterday
are reticent to-day and avowed supporters of Ar
thur seemed dazed by the uncertainty that seems
to overhang his candidacy.
Rumor has it to-day that Blame was afraid of
his own candidacy, fearful that if nominated he
might fail of election and his defeat for the
presidency would retire him inevitably to private
life, with the stigma that he had sacrifice 1 his
party upon the altar of his own ambition. This
feeling was alleged to be the outgrowth of the
discontent of the German element led by Carl
Schurz, who bitterly opposes Blame, and without
the German vote the Kepublican candidate could
not be elected. Therefore the Blame managers
have called a halt to determine who shall receive
the support of the Blame delegates.
THE SHEUMAN STABLE.
A statement was made by a prominent Repub
lican that parties were betting or* the Sherman
stable, General Tecumseh and John against the
field in the event of the failure of Blame and
Arthur's nomination. The fact that John Sher
man's nomination and election would lose a Re
publican senatoi was cited against him,especially
in view of the possible defeat of John H. Jones
for re-election from Nevada, in which case the
Senate might be controlled by Democrats. But
even this is counted far less than the loss of the
presidency. John Sherman is busily employed
holding consultations with various politicians
aud the Arthur men suspect that Blame is
forming a contingent combination with him
like that of 18S0. Sherman would have
received the nomination at that time but for the
fact that Blame could not, without Bill Chandlers
consent, deliver his delegates, and Chandler was
unalterably opposed to Sherman. It is possible
that Don Cameron who appeared in the senate
to-day for the first time, is quietly working for
Sherman, and if John cannot win, then to take
up General Tecumseh, his brother.
Ad administration senator observed to a Globe
correspondent to-day that the Blame boom was
"busted," but he did not know what the effect
would be upon Arthur. He spoke of John
Sherman as a possibility in the event of a break,
and seemed to think there was more in the Sher
man movement than most politicians supposed.
There is not so much said as heretofore about
Lincoln either for the presidency or vice-presi
dency. For some reason friends of other candi
dates appear to dread him and yet they cannot
show that he is doing anything directly in his
own behalf for either first or second place.
tope bob's views.
Col. Bob "ingersoll was surrounded this even
ng at the Riggs house by a crowd of politicians
of both parties, laughing and joking over the
situation. To a remark made by a Republican
congress man that the Republican nomi
nee would certainly be elected,
Ingersoll replied: "I am not so sure about that.
It took all the men in the shop last time to elect
Garfleld, aud more than we had in the shop to
elect Hayes. We are no stronger now thau then.
In fact much weaker unless we gather illegiti
mate streugth from Democratic mistakes, and
they have not made very many so far. Unless
the Democrats make fearful outrageous blunders
they are by no means whipped."
Upon being asked whether he would make any
more Wall street speeches this campaign, he
said: "I have made all the political speeches I
care to and Wall street is not likely to be
entertained by any of my feeble remarks." To
a suggestion made by one of the company that
he favored Arthur's nomination Ingersoll said,
"Arthur is a safe man; so safe that no one can
tell where he is except himself. I like Arthur
personally, but lam not in love with candidates
who are so terribly safe, it argues badly for
Discussing the probabilities of Tilden's nomi
nation Ingersoll stated that one of his Democratic
friends had expressed himself fearful that Tilden
would uot live out his term if elected to the
"Never mind that," replied Ingersoll, "if
Tilden should die he is co sly and cunning no one
would ever know it."
Somebody started a roorback this afternoon
that Tilden was dead, that he had lost immense
sums in depreciation of stocks, of which he was
a large holder, and that he had been taken to
Graystone where ho expired under the shock.
The rumor wa»- traced to a sensational article in
New York Truth that Tilden had been seized with
paralysis and that no one was allowed to see him,
from which it was argued that he was in a dan
gerous condition. Truth is booming Hamilton
Fish for the presidency.
TILDES AND HOADLT.
The belief is expressed that a combination has
been formed to nominate a ticket of "Tilden and
Hoadly" on a modified Ohio platform, and make
a bold ittempt to carry Ohio and New York,
placing if successful the presidency beyond all
contingency of electoral commission juggles.
This idea was intensified to-day by the follow
ing double leaded editorial iv the New York
"Henry B. Payne, of Ohio, is looming up
grandly in the character of a possible and not alto
gether improbable successor to Tilden as the
Democratic candidate for presidency. The fact
that the Ohio delegation at Chicago in July is
sure to be solid for Payne, is of peculiar impor
tance and significance. Everybody can see what
it Linay amount to. The only objection to
Payne is found in the existence
of the Standard Oil company. But that objection
is less futal than it was. It is believed this fa
mous company stood near the ragged edge of
bankruptcy during the crash of black Wednes
day ; if it should fail outright before the Demo
crstic convention meets aud if Payne should
really get the nomination he would stand
a splendid chance of being elected. Perhaps he
may still enjoy snch a chance even without so
startling a preliminary disaster. Bnt if he does
not get the nomination candor compels us to say
he will not stand any chance at all."
What underlies the invective, few can interpret
certainly no good to Payne, which may mean
good to Hoadly.
The Evening Star, referring to the Arthur
meeting at the Cooper Institute, last week,
says: "The statement that both Conkling and
Grant had gone over to Blame, puzzles those
who were on the inside, and they are waiting to
hear from Conkling directly, when they will
probably follow his lead. They say they do not
believe Conkling has gone for Blame, unless his
plans have been entirely changed; and the
move will be in another direction, and the man
who will receive the support of the Grant and
Conkling element, and who will get the nom
ination at Chicago, is Justice Miller,
of the United States supreme court.
Ex-Senator Spencer, an intimate friend of
Conkliug said: "I don't think Grant and Conk
ling have openly declared for Blame, but he is
no donbt their preference as the case etandp.
Both of them are anxious to see Arthur beaten
and they look upon Blame now as the only man
who can certainly do that, for the sake of beating
Arthnr, Conkling and Grant will do all they can
for Blame. Grant would rather see Logan nom
inated than any one else, but he sees Logan has
no chance, and that if the anti-Arthur forces
divide up it may give the president the nomina
Unseating McKinley to-day will be followed by

The Methodist Conference.
Philadelphia, May 29.—Rev. Wm. X.
Ninde, one of the newly elected bishops of
the M. E. church, sat as presiding officer at
the morning session of the general confer
ence, and exercised for the first time the
Episcopal functions. A resolution was
adopted creating a commission of five busi
ness men and five ministers to Inquire into
the methods, transactions and business by
the Book Concern. The committee
on itineracy submitted a number of reports
already printed, which were adopted. The
committee to whom was referred the papers
and memorials on the extension of the time
limit of pastoral terms, reported adversely
to any change. Several substitutes were
tabled, and the report as introduced adopted.

When the conference reassembled, Bishop
Walden occupied the chair for the first time.
Eev. Dr. Goodsell, chairman of the committee on
fraternal greeting, presented a beautifully illum
inated message of greeting from the Methodists
in Turin, Italy. The message-was in Italian.
The chairman was directed to make a reply. The
report of general conference districts was dis
cussed at some length, and adopted with a slight
amendment. The report of the itinerancy com
mittee upon the condition of the journals of the
annual conferences was - read. The delegates
laughed heartily at the sober statement that
"the Alabama Journal was damaged by a
cyclone." The report criticised each
journal with great detail, and was adopted. The
defective journals will be reported to the confer
ences concerned. The itinerancy committee also
reported a resolution relating to "the relief of con
ferences in Germany and Switzerlnnd from the
restricting of the term limit, and placing them
under the missionary rule. The motion to table
the resolution was lost. Dr. Liebhard, of Cincin
nati, urged its passage. Dr. Doering also ex
plained some of the reasons why the change is
desired. The resolution passed. Delegations
from conference districts then prepared their
nominations for members of the various general
committees of the church. The conference ad

writes a severe letter to the treasury. He
urges that Marlborough betrayed England,
embezzled £400,000 public moneys, and ac
cepted bribes of bread contractors, who were
permitted to supply the army with such poor
food that many soldiers were sickened by it
and died. He submitted, likewise, when the
independence of America was recognized the
Perms were compensated for their claims by
a payment of £130,000 given them in yearly
installments of £15,000 with interest." The

argues, was therefore a fraud on the nation.
Moreover, the present recipient of this
