Faaioa Draled by Taaboneek.
Chicago, May 23. When ' the Demo
cratic gold standard committee read yes
terday tbe call for the county convention
as lamed by the county central committee
"machine," a meeting was called and war
to tbe knife declared against the "ma
chin." There certainly will be two Dem
ocratic conventions. After the meeting of
the central committee Thnraday tbe gold
standard committee appointed a special
committee to formulate a plan of action
to meet the emergency. . The trouble is all
over the calling of the primaries; that is,
eliminating the wide divergence of the
factions on the money question. The
gold standard Democrats dcelare that the
primaries have been "fixed' and call them
On Call Brings oa Another.
The official call for the county conven
tion seems only to have settled the gold
standard men in that opinion and caused
them to act at once. The committee was
not to have met until today, but when the
lenders read the official call for the pri
maries and convention they decided that it
was necessary to do something at once
and the committee was called together.
After two hours' consideration of the
question tbe following resolution was
Oold lira Allied to stay Away.
"Resolved, That this committee recom
mends to tbe executive committee of the
Democratic honest-money committee that
It advise all Demorrats of Cook county
who are in favor of honest primaries and
honest money to remain away from tbe
primaries to be held on Monday next; and
be It further resolved, that this commit
tee recommend to the executive committee
that It proceed at once to reorganize the
Democratic party in this county." Gov

UVAVS VISIT TO MAJOR STKINT.EV.
Neither Leader Will Say Anything, hat a
Newspaper Explains the Matter.
Castox. O.. May 23. Senator Quay and
personal friend (who declared he did not
know Quay's purpose) arrived here yes
terday and tho senator paid a visit to
Major McKinley, remaining with him
for over an hour. Quay left here again at
1 :23 p. m., without giving out the suspic
ion of a statement. lie did not appeir to
lie In a cordial Jiumor and rather snapped
at newspaper men. The outcome ot the
Interview is not known; neither Quay nor
McKinley would listen to qnestions.
CLEVELAND, O., May 38. The Leader,
which latter represents McKinley, per
haps, than any other newspaper in the
ITnlted States, publishes in substance the
following upon the visit of Quay to Mc
Kinley: "Quay went to Canton, not as the
bearer of messages from any man or group
ot men, but aa the leader of the Repub
lican party in Pennsylvania. He did not
go, as no reiunrked In Washington, to
question McKinley anout his attitude on
tho money question. He was a Republican
leader visiting the man who will certainly
lie the nomine of the Republican party
I or pmnuent.
"The giving of offices was not consid
ered, nor was tho campaign for the nom
ination discussed, because every Republi
can knows that campaign to be practically
ended. One thing they did discuss was
the campaign which McKinley will enter
against the Democratic candidate for
president. The conference was most
pleasant and cardial on both sides. The
visit of Quay was such as will undoubt
edly be made by many other Republican
lenders both before and after tho St. Louis
PimtBrw), May S3. Senator Quay ar
rived at nia home in lieaver. Fa., from
Canton, O., almtit 5 o'clock. At first he
refused to say anything, but broke his
resolution the next moment and. to a soli
ritous question as to whether he was still
to he considered a candidate, emphatically
replied: "Oh. yes; I am still a candidate
for the presidential nomination and shall
lie voted for at the St. Ijouis convention.
The senator seemed to think he had said
enough and to other questions smilingly
declined to reply.
NO rorCLIST-DEMOCRATIC COMBINE.
At Any Rate Chairman Taabeneck Denies
ST. Louis, May S3. The, announcement
from Indiana that the Populists of every
state In the union are to fuse with the
Democrats In case a free silver platform is
adopted has excited much interest among
local Populists. Chairman Taubeneck, of
the People a party national executive com
mlttee, when seen, said:
"I know absolutely nothing of the story.
Xo Populist, blmetallist, or silver Demo
crat has ever mentioned this to me. If the
Populists of Indiana have agreed to
cotnhlnatlen of this kind they have not
taken any one Into their confidence. So
far aa the national committee of the peo
ple s party la concerned there la no truth
in the report.
