OPENING OF THE CAMPAIGN
IN THE BUCKEYE STATE.
Republican Convention at Columbus
.Major .tlrKlnler to Be Opposed .,
by Uor. Campbell.
Coli mbi s, Ohio, June IT. The most
critical campaign in the hiMory oi
Ohio politics has opened. The impor
tance of the result of this campaign,
not only to the state but to the nation,
is fully realized by the typical --Ohio
man." ami all the artifices and devices
known to modem politics will doubt
less be exerted by loth parties to wins
favorable verdict from the people next
With the election of Gov. Campbell
to the pubernatorial chair two years
apo the lemXTats won a m.st decisive
Tictory in the liuekeye State; and the
stmpple which the Republican of the
State and nation have now W-run to
redeem Ohio to their parfy will nlybe
equaled ly the herculean efforts which
the iH-niocracy will exert to keep the
vantage already won in thi ouasi
Divwtal State of the I'r.ion.
The nomination of William McKin
Jey. ex-(.'onfrrcsman ami author of the
tariff law. made the convention which
opened with so much enthniusm and
pvU feelinc rather s lovefeast than
one of those contentious political
featherings which engender strife and
ill-will m fatal to party success. The
renomination by the llt-movrat of liov.
James K. Campbell-fur another term is
also a prediction safely warranted by
the siyns in the political skv. and
the chief contest for the next four
months will be Wtween McKinlcy and
Campbell, the candidates for the "other
Mate offices being1 almost lust from
sipht in the preat interest which cen
ters in the leaders.
For some days many of his admirers
hae been insisting that the eminentlr
proper thinp to do was to elect senator
John Sherman as temporary chairman
of the convention. Kipht here the first
serums dispute arose. The ambition of
ev'Ov. Foraker to succeed Sherman in
the United States senate should the
next leg-islature le republican is vll
known, and the Foraker men main
tained that it would not be complying1
with the conditions of neutrality or im
plied armistice to show this preference
to senator Sherman. It seemed likely
that the committee on organization
would select Senator Sherman, in spite
of the mutterinps. until the name of
en. Asa S. llushnell wa suddenly
suggested by the Foraker men as a
This settled the dilute over the tem
porary chairmanship arid that honor
was unanimously conferred upon lien.
Ata reivption a his h itel Major
McKlnley made a brief speech.
'Mv fellow-citizens." siiid Major Mc
Kinley, "there is one thin? that can be
said of the Republican party which I
do not. lxdieve can be said of "anv other

thinp that can lie said of the Re

that cannot be said of any other party,

party has come to confess, after many
years of opposition, that upon every

WHEAT PROSPECT IN KAN'.iAS.
Misleading Report The Total Vleld
Will Be About 45,000,000.
Torr.KA, Kan., June IT. Secn tary
Mohlerofthe aprieultural bureaii re
turned this morning1 from a trip
through the northwestern part of the
State. He declares that the crop re
ports which have been collected by
various newspapers within the last few
weeks are very misleading.
"The fact of the matter is."' he said,
"that there never was a time in the
State when there were such differences
between adjoining wheat fields. In
the Solomon valley, for instance. I
found fields which would make fifty
bushels to the cutting. The statement
that the yield will reach r.O,00(,noO
hushels is also erroneous. There will
be the largest acreage that the State
has ever had. It will reach 3.000.000,
and as near as can be estimated now
there will be a three-fourths crop, or
fifteen bushels to the acre."
The secretary does not expect an
especially large yield from the north
west. Si uixoFlKl l, Ohio, June IT. The O.
S. Kelly company, manufacturers of
thrashing machines, have thousands of
apents for their threshers scattered all
