Cixcixxati, April 23. Having slept
over it, the Indiana delegation to the Re
publican League convention seemeJ yes
terday morning inclined to forget the no
ticeable ignoring of President Harrison's
name by the principal speakers of the day
before, and the matter was not brought
up resterday. A notable feature of the
morning session was the distribution to
the delegates of sheets of American made

at St. Louis, the Missouri delegation pass

when the box containing tho plates was
carried up to the stage and its contents
A Letter from the President.
After the tin episode letters from prom
inent Republicans were read. Among
the writers were Senators Manderson and
Sherman, Secretaries Foster and Proctor,
and Gen. Alger. President Harrison sent
a brief letter, the invitation to write one,
it seems, having been delayed until
shortly before his departure for his
western trip. The president wrote under
date of April 11: Vour letter found me
in the press of business incident to a con
templated trip to the Pacific coast, upon
which I shall start in a few hours. I re
gret that I shall be 'unable either to at
tend the conventioa or to give by letter
any extended counsel. The conventions of
the Republican party and the legislation
of the last congress have, however, very
clearly defined and very courageously
presented the issues upon which the next
contest must be waged. To those conven
tion declarations I gave the assent of
deep convictiou, and to the important
legislation of the last congress my earn
est support. If the people of the Cnited
States will now give the world to under
stand that the protection and enlarge
ment of our domestic industries, the ex
tension of our foreign trade by reci procal
arrangements not inconsistent with a
protective policy, and the revival of our
.Merchant marine by the methods that all
other cations us is our settle 1 policy, e
will speedily, I am sure, realizs a marvel
ous development and renewed prosperity."
Summary of the Resolutions.
The resolutions committee made its re
port. It indorses the wise and statesman
like administration of President Harri
son, and the action of Speaker Reed and
the Fifty-first house; declares for protec
tion and reciprocity not inconsistent there
with; stands for good money, and enough
of it; pledges the party not to forget the
veterans of thewar; recommends the exclu
sion from our country of foreign criminals
and paupers, and demands that every citi
zen of the country shall be made secure in
his right to vote and have his vote counted.
A Clause That was Dropped.
In the piank regarding foreign pauper
immigration, as reported by the commit
tee there was a clause to the effect that
among those excluded should be th03e
who are '"so alien in ideas aud habits of
thought that they caunot ba assimilated
in the body politic." This brought to his
feet a Wisconsin delegate, who said that
upon just such a proposition the Repub
licans had lost that state last year. Gen.
Fairchild endorsed tbe delegate, while
Campbell, of Xew York, said that beinz
right was belter for the Republican party
than pariy success. The clause was struck
Election of Officers.
The incorporation of the League was
left to a committee of five for considera
tion, aud tbeu the election of oflicers was
next thing in order. John M. Clarkson,
of Iowa, was named and several delegates
seconded the nomination. State Senator
-Mathews, of Illinois, said that his state
had sapped a cog last year, but wouldn't
do it any more, and nominated V. VT.
Tracy, president of the Illinois League.
At this point Thurston left the chair and
made a vigorous speech in favor of Clark
son, and the final result was that Tracy
was withdrawn and Clarkson elected by
Given a "Temporary Compliment."
Thurston made a speech thanking the
league for the honor it had done him. and
expressed his regret at severing his official
relations with the body. On his motipn
Tracy, of l.iinois, was made chairman
pro tern, and Tracy thanked the conven
tion for the "temporary compliment." A.
B. Humphrey, of New York, was nomi
nated for secretary, and immediately a
telegram from Clarkson was produced In
dorsing the selection. A Pennsylvania
delegate objected to this telegram, and
nominated i'heo. 13. Stulb, of Philadel
phia. An Ohio delegate named J. J.
Chester, of Columbus. A vote was taken.
and after a number of changes had beeu
niaue Humphreys waa declared the win
ner and his election made unanimous.
Locating the Nest Meeting:.
Ex-Governor Lounsbury, of Connecticut,
was elected treasurer by acclamation. The
committee on location of the next conven
tion icported in favor of Indianapolis,
and the first Tuesday in April, 1893, as the
time. Objections were made on all hands
to holding the convention prior to the na
tional Republican convention. Finally it
was proposed to leave the location and
time to the executive ' committee with
the condition that the convention
should be held three weeks after the na
tional Republican convention, and this
proposition was adopted. The thanks of
the League were tendered to the late
President Thurston, and to the local
clubs for courtesies, the committee to
notify Clarhson of Ids election to the
presidency of the League was appointed,
and the convention ad journed. .
A MODIFIED DISCLAIMER.
Es-President Cleveland Say That Ste
phens Misrepresented Him.
Xew Yoek, April 23. Ex-President
Cleveland was asked yesterday by n
united Press reporter if Mr. Stephens'
version of bis conversation with him,
nnd his statement of his views on the sil
ver question were correctly reported. Mr.
Cleveland said: "I have just read the re
lort. It seams to me, from my reading of
it, that it has been generally embellished,
i nd expressions are pat in my mouth that
were never uttered by mn, but are the ex
pressions used by another gentleman who
The Report Wants Weeding.
While some of the opinions may be re
garded as partly my viewsupon the sub
ject of silver coinage, yet there are so
many other expressions credited to me
that it would require a considerable
weeding out before the supposed conver
sation could be strictly termed an accu
rate repert. I see a good many people,
and Mr. Stephens came to me as a visitor
from a distant state. I desired to treat
him courteously, but it is scarcely fair
treatment to me that he should run oft to
a newspaper office, report my supposed
utterances, and place me in the posit i 011
or being interviewed by several news
paper men upon the strength of a garbled
and embellished report."
