fS CLEVELAND OUT?
A Question Current at the Na
k POSITIVE NEWSPAPES ASSERTION
liat the Kx-President Has Irrevocably
Decided Not to Run in 1893 Some
Comments on the Statement What
Tracy of Jiew York Says The Coin
age Committee Puts the Senate Silver
I ill Finally to Sleep by a Large Ma
jority Proceedings in Congress.
Washington Cut, Feb. 21. Yesterday
Tliiveland was again the chief subj ;ct of
conversation at the capital. The state
ment was published ia The Tost with a
jood deal of emphasis upon its accuracy
lint Cleveland has "finally and irrevoca
My decided that he will not accept the
nomination of his party for the presi
dency, and that he will soou write a let
ter announcing his determination." Of
course there is nothing in the 8tory so far
a-i can be learned here. Ex-Secretary
WLitney, who is in the city, says that it
is all news to him. It is understood that
Senator Vest is authority for the state
ment, and that his information is based
upon a conversation which he or sorie one
had with Cleveland three or four months
He Hay Still Be Willing.
Vest, though formerly friendly e longh
to Cleveland, is still bitter over the recent
silver letter, and Cleveland's friendssay he,
or whoever set the .vtory in circulation,
must have placed too broad an interpreta
tion on whatever Cleveland did say con
cerning his future. It is easily see i that
Cleveland may have said he was not and
would not be a candidate in the sense that
he was in 1SS4, aiding and counseling his
friends in their effort to secure the nomi
nation for him. He was once president
snd he now takes the view that it would
not be becoming in him to scramble for
the honor of a third nomination. If the
party wants him it will say so witho ut au
tllort on his part.
Hill's Prospects lor New York.
Out of the gossip over this statement
appeared the intelligence, tolerably well
authenticated, that the Cleveland men of
New York will make no effort to secure
t he election of favorable delegates from
t hat state to the national convention Hill
is to have it all his own way in New York,
and undoubtedly will go into t he conven
tion with the great block of deh gates
from the Empire state solid at his back.
Tracy, of New York, had a personal let ter
from Cleveland withiu four days. N'j
reference is made in it to auy purpose on
the part of the writer to withdraw from
the field of presidential possibilities,
though the character of the letter gives
opportunity for such an avowal were it in
'ot Posing as a Lightning Iiod.
On that subject he says merely tbfct if a
majority of his party is opposed to h m he
in standing in no one's way. Some time
n;o, Tracy said, Cleveland had an idea of
taking himself out of the field of choice,
but his friends pointed out to him th.it Lis
luty would be to obey the commands of
his party, and he had agreed net to
withdraw his name, but let the future
liape itself. Meanwhile a telegram from
New York says that Cleveland was en
gaged in a reference case Friday, and sent
nil, word to all reporters that he knew
nothing whatever about the matter pub
lished in The Washington Post.
Later from New York.
Another telegram from New York says
that Cleveland was seen last night ani de
nied The Post's story totally. He said:
"1 never had such an intention. In point
of fact, I am not giving much thought to
the matter stated in the dispatch you
show me. I have not said anythir g in
public or private to lead any one to be
lieve that I am anxious to obtain a renom
i nation to the presidency. Mr ideas on
that subject are quite well understood by
all with whom I have conversed and
wuo are at ait entitled to be called my

y, Williams voting against it and B and

ABGUS, SATURDAY. FEBRUAli 21.
SOME INDIANA LEGISLATION
Alleged Job to Benefit the Heirs of an
IKDIASAPOLI8, Feo. 21. The senate Fri
day discovered what appeared to be a
huge job in the bill of Representative
Johnson, of Carroll county, which passed
the house as a very innocent measure.
The bi 1 provides for a change of venue in
cases affecting decedents' estates nnder
the same rules that govern other cases.
When the bill was reported by the senate
committee Friday Mr. Burke took the
floor in opposition to its engrossment aud
gave a history of the measure. He
said that a wealthy citizen of Carroll
county had died bouie time ago aud bad
left pioperty aggregating MOO.OOO. Whi n
the bequests were published the fact be
came apparent that the county had been
cheated out of f25,000 or 130,000 in taxes
as much of the property had never been
listed, and the treasurer applied for the
appointment of an administrator.
A Bill to Aid the Heirs.
The heirs fought the appointment and
asked for a change of venue, but this wai
refused. The supreme court sustained the
refusal, and this bill had been introduced
to aid the heirs to escape the county's
claim. The bill was amended so as not to
apply to any pending case and was then
engrossed. The house passed the day in
considering the fee and salary bill and en
grossed the measure. The salaries of two
thirds of the officers were raised above the
figure reported by th committee, some of
them as high as 20 per cent. An amend
ment prevailed restoring all salaries of
deputies and clerks in the state building
to the sums now fixed by law.
Reports made to the state experimental
station nhow that the prospects for a heavy
wheat crop in Illiuois are encouraging.

The Republicans Protested.
ToPEKA, Feb. 2L The house has by a
strict party vote, passed the bill changing
the name of Geary county to Davis. A
protest signed by every Republican mem
ber and filed with the clerk says that the
bill enters upon the statute book a false
hood by declaring that the county was
originally named for Judge Davis, of
Illinois, when in fact it was named for
that arch traitor, Jefferwn Davis. The
passage of the bill is protested against as
an insult to the memory of Governor
Geary, for whom it was named.
