CHICAGO, Jane 23. Senator Cullom was
la the city yesterday, and, in view of the
talk of him as a presidential possibility,
it goes without saying that the reporters
saw him. He spoke freely of his kboom."
It is just this way," he said.- "The pres
ent is rather too early to take a positive
stand. Next year next spring to be more
precise should occasion for several candi
dates to enter the field seem to offer, I may
ask the support of tbe Illinois delegation
and enter tbe field as one of them. But
should the general feeling be for either
Blaine or Harrison, why I'll go in with
the boys and work for either man as hard
Hi View of the Third Party.
'Hnrd work will then be necessary?"
"Indeed yes. Very hard work. I know
of no national canvass in which so much
hard, earnest effort, guided by keen,
shrewd hands, was called for as will be
demanded next year. According to the
present outlook there promises to be a
third party in the Seld. Contrary to a
pretty widespread belief, however, I do
not look for the third party to be detri
mental to our party solely. Such a party,
should it become an actuality, will cut
into the preserves f both parties, and
make them look to their laurels. The
present canvass in Ohio is a very interest
ing cne, from which some calculation of
the relative strengths of the three parties
may V obtained.
Tariff the Chief Sssne.
"What, in your judgment, will be the
chief issue of the national canvass''
"The tariff. Yes," in answer to a ques
tion, "the silver question may have a
prominent place. It will, of course, de
pend to a great extent on what the next
session of congress Ujtwit h it. Perhaps
I should say that ifflppend upon what
position the questioaia in after congress
and the president have done with it. My
opinion i that congress will pass a free
coinage bill, and that tbe president will
veto it. The question is a very difficult
one, though, and not susceptible of quick
Cleveland's Letter on Silver.
'"Mr. Cleveland is about the only man of
prominence whoe position may be looked
upon as settled. There is no doubt where
iiS jnT1f's- tjiVing the position he Vt
himself the sufort of ike western suvjf
states, though. Prior, to that letter, for
which, by the way, there . seemed at the
.time to be no necessity to write, the Dem
ocrats of the western .states, though they
knew about what JJr. Clevejacd s views
were, still they would have supported him.
But the letter has had much the effect of a
dare. It was as if when he wrote it be
said: 'Here is where I stand; now it,
do as you please.' "
The Senator' Position Stated.
"My position? lafess I can't state at
present. The question' is fraught with
so many financial possibilities. I am op
posed to free coinage because I fear it
would drive gold out of the country. That
would be very disastrous. I am also op
posed to a single standard, for there is not
enough gold in the country to meet the
demand for money. "What I should like
to see is a bi-metallie congress, composed
principally of the United States, Great
Britain, France and Germany, adopt the
bi-metallic standard. This done, free coin
age wculd work no evil results. But for
one country to adopt it would, 1 fear, r
too great a rik."
The President and Blaine.
He thought BIain could have the nomi
nation if he wanted it; didn't thiak
Blaine's health a factor in the question,
and said that whether Blaine wanted the
nomination or not was an unanswerable
question. It looked as though the presi
dent was a candidate for renomination.
"His administration has been a good one.
Had he been as fortunate ia his dealings
inside the White House as he has outside
Lis renomiaa4kn would have leen a cf-r-tainty.
His recent trip did him great
good. And as usual with him not a tLinir
is to be fouud in his speeches to hurt
Going Abroad for His rir-t Trip.
Mr. Cullom is uoing abroad, and for the
first time in his life. "Ye, I'm going to
Kurope," said the senator, dropping poli
tics, "and expect to make au extended
tour of Great Britain and the continent,
and while there I'm going to talk World's
fair all the time. I expect to be gone a
good part of the summer. I haven't the
least idea how the trip across the water
will affect me. This will be my first trip.
I've been en the water considerable, how
ever. I once took a perilous trip to the
government pier here, and have ridden
down the Mississippi on big steamers, and
have a little row boat of my own on t!ie
Illinois river; and so you see I'm ail right
for a trip abroad."
TALK AT THE NATIONAL CAPITAL.
Littler Said to Have Made Some Remarks
M ike for Cleveland.
Washington, June 23. Hon. David T.
Littler, the well-known politician of
Springfield, is in Washington, and will
cross the ocean in a few days to mingle
with the nobility of Europe, and incident -ally
to study the condition of the laboring
classes and equip himself to take the
stump in Ohio for Major McKinley on
bis return. Littler says Senator Cullom
will be "complimented" with the vote of
Illinois in the Republican convention.
"How about Harrison and Blaine?" he
Prefers "Ben" to "Jim."
"Xow, I will tell you one thing. For
myself, ns between Benny and Jimmy, I
would be for Benny every time, and I
think my state ia of the same opinion. It
is my private opinion that James G.
Blaine is now down at Bar Harbor fixing
up a scheme to be nominated for presi
dent. He and his friends say he will not
be, but Hiey can't fool all the people in
the country. 1 don't think he will ever
come back here as secretary of state
President Harrison lias gsvea us a good
administration and his messages to con
gress have the right ring to them. Xo,
sir; as between these two men Illinois
THEY'RE WED XOW.'
Widow McCrea and Her Dcug
lass Legally Married.
SEQUEL TO A YIAB-OLD SENSATION.
The Participants in a Marriage in WHich
the Clergyman Was Black and the
Groom Already Possessed of a Wife
Lawfully United at Milwaukee and the
Fact Announced The Story of Their
Startling Escapade Briefly Retold.
Chicago, June 23. About three wteks
ago- it was rumored that prttty Alice
Snell-McCrea and Douglass Green, of Jew
York, had been married quietly in a town
near Chicago. The papers printed it that
way. All the members of the Snell family
then in the city denied that any s ich
ceremony had taken place. But they
were wrong. It also appears that taey
knew the story to be true, but for
reasons best known to themselves did not
want to give it publication. Late last
night the following marriage notice was
sent out: "Thursday noon, June 4, 1M1,
in the presence of the families of the con
tracting parties, at Milwaukee, by Rev.
Amos A. Kiehle, Douglass Green and XJrs.
Alice Snell-McCrea." It was not tn
nonnced when or where the happy couple
would be "at home to their friends."
There Were "No Cards."
News of the matrimonial event escared
the attention of society reporters in Mil
waukee and Chicago because there w re
no cards. Now everything is settled solar
as the marriage is concerned. The couple
are not "at home," members of the fanr.ly
say, and as to their plans for the fu
ture there is some doubt. ' A. J.
Stone, who is the husband of Mrs.
Alice Snell-McCrea-Green's sister, wis
shown by a reporter a copy of the mar
riage notice. "That is right," said Mr.
Stone. "They were married in Milwai
kee June 4 by the minister whose name is
mentioned, and they immediately re
turned to Chicago. Mrs. Green is now at
the home of her mother, and Mr. Gretn
has gone east to settle up some business
matters. He is undecided as to wbeth r
he shall go into business in this city r
Thinks All's Well That Ends Well.
Mr. Stone said he did not wish to say
anything about Mrs. Green's recent trip 1 3
Europe with the man she married in Mil
waukee on June 4, nor would he explai.i
why that marriage was denied by member
cf the family. "Naturally," said Mr.
Stone, "I am averse to talking about this
matter at all. Everyone knows that Mr.
and Mrs. Green went to Europe togetbtr
and that Mrs. Green secured a divorce
from her husband, and was given the cus
tody of their two children. We want to
avoid publicity, jlr. and Mrs. Gretn an
devoted to each other, are married, and
that ia ajl there is to it except what has
already bevn'Piblishsd.C .
Ioks Lite Another Jonrney.
Although Mr. Stone said Mrs. Alice
Snell-McCrea-Green's husband was ar
ranging to go into business either in New
Y'ork or Chicago, an advertisement which
appeared in last Sunday's papers would
indicate that the couple are preparing for
another journey. The ad was for a
French maid or nurse "to travel," and ap
plicants were to call at the Snell home
stead in this city thtresidence where,
in Millionaire Snell battled with
bnrelar9 and was slain, presumably by
The Sensation Recalled.
Douplass Green was formerly a member
of tbe New York stock exchange. He had
an attractive wife and two bright children
and was supposed to be solid financially.
He had many friends. He disappeared
suddenly, and then it was discovered that
he had not left funds enough behind to
pay his creditors. The rich and handsome
woman to whom he was married in Mil
waukee disapxeared from New York
about the seme time.
The Wedding In Virclniu.
She had been visitins in Gotham for sev
eral weeks and attracting considtTable at
tention. She was a society woman with
plenty of money. It was at a social gath
ering that she first met Green. The next
news of the stock exchange manand Mrs.
Alice Snell-McCrea came from Old Point
Comfort. Va. They had moved in society
circles at that fashionable resort, though
not as man and wife, and had finally gone
to the home of a colored preacher and
But There was Another Mrs. Green.
That was the story. Mrs. Green had not
yet secured a divorce. ImmedWitely fal
lowing the ceremony which the colored
divine performed Mr. and Mrs. Gretn de
parted fcr Europe. They remained
abroad several months. The exact date
of their arrival iu Chicago has not been
STORM HAVOC IN KENTUCKY.
Fifty Buildings Destroyed anil Several
Persons InjuredCrops Ruined.
LOUISVILLE, June 23. Storms have been
doing great damage in Kentucky during
the past week, and last night news of a
terrific cyclone in Monroe and Metcalfe
counties reached the city. Not leas than
fifty buildings in the storm's track, in
cluding barns and dwellings, were de
stroyed. Several people were injured and
many had narrow escapes. "Bom Edmonds
and Clint Newman, travelling salesmen
from Louisville, barely escaped with their
Cut Holes in the Ground.
The cyclone cut holes in the ground,
and the wheat and corn crops were utter
ly ruined in many places. Washington
county suffered also. Three hundred
head of cattle in Mrs. Grundy's barn were
killed or badly injured. A waterspout at
Freedom did much damage to crops.
Sullivan's Forfeit Is on Deposit.
New York, June 23. Charles Johnson
and James Wakely called at the office of
The Illustrated News yesterday to meet
the backers of Slavin and endeavor to ar
range a fight between Slavin and Sulli
van. Slavin's friends, however, did not
put in an appearonce, and Johnson and
Wakely, after waiting an hour for them,
decided to allow the tl.OOO deposit to re
main with The News, so that Slavin's
backers can cover it whenever they are
A Suggestion from Clarkson.
Washington. June 23. John S. Clark
son, now abroad, has written a letter to
the state department suggesting that it

The Mamies for Cleveland.
Hen. Scott Wike thinks Grover Cleve
land should be nominated by the Democ
racy in lS!i "The masses are for Cleve
land and he will surely be the nominee, I
know," he remarked recently. "Some
Democratic senators are opposing him.
They couldn't control him when he was
president and hence their hostility. They
tay he is against the party on the silver
question. It is likely the bulk of the par
ty opposes his views on finance, but that I
take to be a minor question. It certainly
is secondary to the great question of the
Morrison Agrees with Wike.
Col. Morrison, who has just got back
from the west, was seen. Politically Col.
Morrison never knows anything new. He
protests that he does not by a wink of his
left eye, which by some is interpreted to
mean a suggestion: "Have you thought
of my boom for president?" After Col.
Morrison declared he knew nothing con
cerning the Illinois Democracy his atten
tion was called to the opinion of the Hon.
Scott Wike that Cleveland was the favor
ite of the Illinois Democrat. "Well, I
don't know but what he is correct. In
fact, I am pretty sure that Cleveland is a
favorite in Illinois," he said.
Alger Not Booming Blaine.
Sax Francisco, June 23. General Al
ger, with his family, arrived here Sunday,
having made a tour of the northwest. In
a conversation with a United Press re
porter he denied that he was booming Mr.
Blaine for the presidency. He said that
Blaine did not want any booming. If the
latter wanted the Republican nomination
for the presidency he could have it and
needed no assistance from him or any one
Governor Hill Not a Railway Man.
Albant, June 23. The statement which
has been going the rounds of the press that
Governor Hill is interested in a projected
railroad in Ohio with eastern capitalists
and Postmaster General Wanamaker is
untrue. Governor Hill has not now, ar.d
never had a dollar's interest in any rail
road, nor is he connected with one in any
opacity whatever. The story is utterly
A CANADIAN GIRL'S FREAK.
She Dresses Herself in Male Clothing
and Becomes a Mired Man.
OTTAWA, Ont., June 2a Clara Wort
man, for whom 300 men have been search
ing the woods, instead of being lost for
twelve days was comfortably situated
most of the time at the farm of Mr. Byron
McLeod, about two miles from Sussex.
She did not like going to school and was
in several ways dissatisfied with her mode
of life. On Monday, June 1, when she
left home last, she had in the basket in
which she carried her lunch all the neces
sary clothes for changing her garb for
that of a miin.
5laue Herself a Snit.
She went about 2u0 yards into the woods
opposite to her home, and ripped up and
made over to fit her the coat, trousers and
shirt belonging to her brother, then with
a pair of scissors and a bit of mirror sLe
cropped off her long hair, and having at
tired herself in male clothing waited fur
for darkness. When she got her hair cut
she says she repented and waited to re
turn home, but she had spoiled her broth
er's clothes and altered her own appear
ance so that she was afraid to, and deter
mined to go on. She went to Mr. Mc
Leod's farm and hired out as a farm hand,
and there she was found.
SMITH-BARRY'S GREAT VICTORY.
He Triumphs Over the Plan of Campaign
and the Boycott.
London, June 23. The attempts to stay
the reconciliation of Smith-Barry and his
tenants have proved a failure. Father
Humphries and other Nationalists tried
to establish an effective boycott against
old Tipperary in order to prevent the col
lapse cf New Tipperary, the town which
was founded by the National league as a
trade center and refuge for the evicted
tenants. The loycott. however, could not
1 made effective in face of the fact that
New Tipperary is deserted.
The Tenauts Fay Vp Their Rents.
Old Tipperary is once more full of ten
ants and doiuea good deal cf iis old-time
trade. The great movement to punish
Smith-Barry for his interference with the
plan of campaign on another estate has
wholly collapsed, after costing many thou
sands of pounds to the league and its
friends. Smith-Barry tenants are bark on
their boldine, and have paid up tbe reM
for the time they were away.

Making a Clean Sweep.
Halifax, N. S.. June 23. The Liberals,
having obtained power in Prince Edward

are making a clean sweep of Tory of
