M'MILLLAN TALKS OP MICHIGAN.
81511 Ificance of Monday' Election Th.
. Campaign of 1893. . t
New Yobk,- April 8 Senator James
McMillan, of Michigan, was at the Wind
sor hotel Monday. lie is on his way to
Europe, where he proposes to remain four
man ths. He said he was deeply in terested
in the election ia his state. "Although It
judge of the supreme court and twd re
gents of the university are the only of
ficers to be chosen, the fight has been
made unusually hot by both parties," tbe
senator said, "because of the significance
which will attach to the election if the
Republicans win. That result would be
taken to mean that the state was not won
permanently by the Democrats last fall.
A Good Democratic Candidate. .
"The Republicans are handicapped
somewhat because the Democratic cand.1- '
date is now on the beach. He lias been
good judge aud his record will' count,
among a large class of voters who do not
believe in mingling politics with the
judiciary. The situation is peculiar. A
great deal of interest centers about the
Farmers' Alliance vote. Taat party,
with from 30,000 to 50,000 votes at the'
greatest, holds the balance of power. Is'o
bodyJcnows with which of the great par
ties it will affiliate in this contest, and on
the determination of this point many
predictions for the state in 1S93 will be
Republicans of the State for Alger.
"Will Michigau send an Alger delega
tion to the next Republican convention?"
the senator was asked. -
"Undoubtedly it will," be said. "The
only possibility that it will not is that
Blaine may be in the fight.. There are
some indications that he cannot keep
himself from coming before the conven
tion. I do not believe that he wants to be
a candidate, but if he la Alger' would net
make a fight against him. They are close
friends. . I think Harrison will be ths)
nominee, though with no other candidate
Michigan would send an Alger delega
tion." - . .
Democrats For Cleveland.
"Whom do the Michigan Democrats
"it Don M. Dic&inson can't head he
ticket, Michigan Democrats want Cleve
land," the senator said. "The state is a
Cleveland state on the Democratic sidS, -because
it is believed that he is an honest
man. If Dickinson is not first on the
ticket and he is too good a friend of the
ex-president to make any trouble for hi&
Cleveland, with Dickinson secjjpd,
would be warmly received. If Michigan .
proves to be a doubtful state, a combina
tion like that might be attempted, with
the idea that it would hold it Democratic.
Other candidates are not beard of among
Michigan Democrats. Hill, as a presiden
tial candidate, amounts to nothing out
there." " "
