IT SHUTS HIM OUT.
Senator Harris on Cleveland's
HO CHANCE TOE GK0VEB IN 1892.
The Tennessee Statesman Holds That
Free Coinage Mast Be a Democratic
Issne, and Suggest Campbell of Ohio
aa the Winning Man Felton Elected
Senator from California The Hrlbery
Charges Seem to tack Solidity Politi
cal and Legislative Matters.
Memphis, Tenn., March 30. Senator
Ishara C. Harris passed through the city
Wednesday en route from Washington
City to middle Tennessee. In answer to
questions regarding national politics he
said: "Cleveland's position on silver coin
age, in my opinion, has destroyed his
chances for the nomination in 1S92. Free
coinage is as clearly a party principle as
the reform of the tariff and the Demo
cratic party is jnst as positively commit
ted to it. Before Mr. Cleveland expressed
himself as he did in his letter his nomina
tion on the first ballot was all but certain.
Now there ara not more than three Dem
ocratic members of the senate who b.-lieve
that he will be nominated."
A New Yorker Not Wanted.
In answer to the inquiry whether he
thought the success of the party will de
pend on the nomination of a New Yorker,
Senator Harris said: "So, the party will
be stronger in New York if the candidate
is from another state. In the event, how
ever, that a New Yorker should be se
lected, 1 know a man, who, if he were
available, would be a stronger candidate
and make n better president than any
other resident of his state. I refer to Mr.
"W. C. Whitney, ex-secretary of the navy.
Ah. but he is a ureat man with n brain
as clear as the tones of a silver blL He
is not available, however, for he would
not oppose Mr. Cleveland.'
The Chance for Campbell.
Harris said that if Campbell beats Mc
Kinley for governor of Ohio, he would
have a "cinch" on the nomination for presi
dent. He carried Ohio against Foraker
because, largely, of trouble in the ranks
of the enemy; but with McKinley for Re
publican nominee the Republicans would
ba united, and Campbell's victory in that
cae would be an absolute triumph of
Democratic principles. Cleveland, how
ever, would be a candidate lfore the na
tional Democratic convention until he was
either beaten or nominated, the latter be
ing, in Harris opinion, an impossibility
Fact About That List.
The alloyed list of members who were
willing to be purchased is a "barren ideal
ity," it stems. Assemblyman Dibble
openly accepts the responsibility for it,
and says it was a tally-list which lie h-d
kept in connection with a county division
bill, and that nothing improper could be
fhown in connection, as the list contained
the names of a number of Democrats. As
noon a Felton heard of the charges he
wrote a peremptory letter to the attorney
general, demanding that he disclose the
nctual facts and proceed against any one
who might be involved, even by implica
tion, in the alleged wrong doing. The at
torney general at once replied that so far
as he hud examined the matter the papers
turned over to him in nowise showed that
any candidate was doing anything wrong.
CALIFORNIA'S NEW SENATOR.
Charles N. Felton Captures the Prize
Kntee Itemarks That Bribery.
Sacramento, Cal., March 20. Ex-Congressman
Charles N. Felton was elected
United States senator yesterday to suc
ceed the late Geonre Hearst. The vote
stood: Felton, 73; Estee, 15; White (Dem.),
28; Peacock aud Johnston, 1 each. Sena
tor elect Felton was born in New York
fifty-eight years ago and came to Califor
nia when he was 17 years of age. He en
gaged in mining and mercantile pursuits
and entered politics as a Democrat. He
afterward became a Republican and was
lected to the assembly and then to con
gress. He has also held the position of
United States sub-treasurer at San Fran
cisco. Kntee Hoes Some Grumbling.
In an interview after the election Estee
said: UI have nothing to say for publica
tion except that I was defeated because I
had not enough of votes. No poor man
has a chance to aspire to office in Cali
fornia. I do not pretend to say that
money was used for the election of Mr.
Felton, but he certainly had with him the
influence of treat corporations like the
Alaska Seal Fur company, sugar refiner
ies, federal brigade, etc. The men who
stood by me are men against whom there
has never been a breath of suspicion.
After my defeat I congratulated Mr. Fel
ton on his election, and wished him many
happy days. I am satisfied, and I do not
want the Japanese mission even now. Cal
ifornia climate is good enough for me."
Investigating the Alleged Bribery.
The joint committee of the two branches
of the legislature have begun an investi
gation of the charges of bribery in con
nection with the senatorial contest. A
number of wituesses have been examined
iucluding M . M. Estee. He said he did net
know of any of the candidates usinu;
money improperly in this canvass. At
torney General Hart produced a package
containing papers found in the ntate
library and which are supposed to contain
the evidence bearing on the alleged
bribery charges. It was decided not to
open the package at this time.
Power Not for Free Silver.
New York, March 20. United States
Senator Thomas C. Power, of Montana,
said Wednesday that he thought that the
silver advocates In the last congress had
made a mistake in trying to adopt a meas
ure providing for the absolute free coin
age of silver. The senator was rated as
one of the most ardent of silver men be
cause his own state was full of bullion
uwiiers. He said, however, that he did
not think that it was good policy to jump
too' quickly to the free coinage of the

Synopsis of the Proceedings of the State
Springfield, Ills., March 20. The sen
ate yesterday made the bill for weeklj
payment of wages special order for Tues

ment sine die April 15 was introduced.

Lansing. Mich., March 20. The senate
devoted yesterday to the consideration in
committee of the whole of Senator Bas
tone's bill t. secure uniformity of text

such books by t he state. The practical
effect of this bill was to prohibit the

feature of the bill, and it will probably
pass. The house committee on elections

prohibit blacklisting. The bill made it a
felony for any one to publish or circulate
any statement true or false, for the pur
pose of preventing any person from ob
taining employment, and it placed the
penalty at from two to hve years in the

amended by doing away with the pro i
sion against publishing the truth raid
adding a provision against the publica
tion of a list to show that a man is a
member of a labor organization.

dict in the case of Rev. Howard Mac
Queary for heresy was made public Thurs
day. Mr. MacQueary is suspended six
months, and it he does not "retract"
during that time his suspension be
comes, expul.-ion. He is found guilty of
'"holding and teaching publicly and ad
visedly doctrines contrary to those held
by tin Protestant, Episcopal church iu
t he L'nited States of America," and of
"having by such holding and teachiug
leen guilty of an act which involves a
breach of his ordination vows, said ob
noxious doctrines and the manner of
holding and teaching them being plainly
set forth in said presentment."
He Will Never lie t rue t.
Mr. McQueary's doctrines make him
such a good Unitarian that he has had
several calls already to Uuitariau pulpits.
He denies the doctrine of the trinity, that
of the immaculate conception, aud the res
urrection of Christ's human body. He has
written to Bishop (Leonard tendering his
resignation from the miuistry of the Epis-
I copal church of the United States, and
asks that it be accepted at once, and that
steps be taken at once for his deposition.
He wrote: here is not the slightest prob
ability of my retracting my alleged errors.
On the contrary, I have ever reasou to be-
! lieve that further investigation will simply
confirm my present convictions."

fraternities- which have existed for centu
ries, and for the abolition of chaplains ra
hospitals, asylums and prisons, began to

Claims of the Lawyers.

composure to the arguments of her hus
band's counsel, which were to the effect

BREWERS TAKING THE ALARM.
Local Option stirs I'p the British Beer
London, Mirch 20 British brewers
have become frightened at the success
which thus far has attended the efforts of
the . temperan:e element in forwarding
legislation looking to the reduction of t he
number of public houses and otherwise
restricting the traffic in strong drink. It
is the intention of the members opposing
the Welsh local option bill to talk that
measure down when it comes before the
house for final reading, and the brewers
are preparing for a lavish expenditure of
money to influence the shelving of the bill
in the committee stage. In this under
taking the brewers will probably suc
ceed. Gladstone's Speech the Keynote.
