Pattlaon Believes Me Has Pros

Predictions Field Notes.
Chicago, April 11. A conference was
held at the Grand Pacific hotel yesterday
afternoon which is thought to have some
political significance. The participants
were Senators Allison, of Iowa, and Saw
yer, of Wisconsin; Judge Blodgett, of the
United States appellate court, and Jesse
Spaulding, the well-known Republican
leader of this city. The matters discussed
are thought to have been the interests of
Harrison, Allison and Culloin in the next
presidential campaign and the nomina
tion of Levi p. Morton for second place on
the ticket. None of the gentlemen present
would make any statement as to what was
done, and all conducted themselves with
the evident purpose of attracting as little
attention as possible. It is believed some
arrangement was entered into for side
tracking the presidential booms of Messrs.
Allison and Cullom in the interest of the
Harrison and Morton ticket.
Think Campbell Has a Chance.
A dispatch from Columbus, O., says:
The favorable mention made by some in
fluential Democratic newspapers of ex
Gov. Campbell in connection with the
national ticket, leads some Ohio Demo
crats, in spite of the governor's repeated
declarations that he could not afford to
accept the nomination for the vice presi
dency, to think that he stands a very good
chance of recognition at the Chicago con
vention. As soon as Governor Campbell
returned from Rhode Inland he was met
by Dr. C. A. Norton, chairman of the state
central committee; James H. Townsend,
ex-chairman of the executive committee;
John K. Brice, brother of Chairman
Brice: Colonel A. U. Carlisle, of the state
central committee, and Allen W. Thur
rnan. They remained in secret session
three days, but could not be induced to
say a word. It is thought the state con
vention will not be called before May in
order to allow time for a crystallization of
parly sentiment in the state.
Tattison Said to be at Wcrk.
Harkis-bikg, Pa., Aril 11. It is re
ported that Governor Pattison is using his
influence to prevent instructions for Cleve
land by the Democratic state convention
next Wednesday in the belief that his
prospects for the nomination for president

Will Gorman Support Cleveland?
Washington, April 11. The champion
ship of Cleveland's cause by Freeman
Raisin, of Baltimore, has attracted atten
tion here. Raisin is a man of prominence
because he is the recognized confidant of
Senator Gorman. The belief is that Gor
man has decided to support Cleveland
as against Hill for president.
INGALLS MAKES A PREDICTION.
The Competitors on the Presidential
Tioket To llf Harrison and Cleveland.
Chicago, April 11. Ex-United States
Senator John J. In gal Is arrived Saturday
at the Grand Pacific. When he was in the
city a short time ago it was generally be
lieved that Hill and Blaine would be the
opposing candidates for the presidency.
Despite this Mr. Ingalls predicted the cer
tain nomination of Cleveland and Harri
son. He now believes that his prediction
has already practically been fulfilled.
"Blaine is now not to be thought of," b
aid. "Blaine was the choice of enthusi
asm, Harrison is that of common sense.
Cleveland will be nominated by the masses
of his party."
Says Kansas Will Return.
After criticising the action of the pres
ent congress the ex-senator said: "The re
sult will be Cleveland's nomination. My
own state will return to the fold. The
present programme in Kansas is to give
the electoral vote to the Democrats and
the state offices to the Alliance. It will
fall." Ingalls had but one reply to ques
tions regarding his political future. "1
have no further desire for public life," h

Madisow, Wis., April 11. A special sea
don of the legislature will probably be
called by Governor Pek for Wednesday,
May 11, although tne exact date uas not

clude no other business in his call except

Be Hankers for Blaine.
Washington, April 11. 1 have not dis

tion from a correspondent as to whether

THE GRAND ARMY ENCAMPMENT.
Features or the Meeting of Ilnya In Bine
at the National Capital.
Washington, April 11. The passage by
the senate last week of an appropriation
of $100,000 to aid in defraying the expenses
of the national encampment, G. A. R.,
next September, has 'greatly encouraged
and enthused those in charge of the ar
rangements for the affair. In addition t
this sum the citizens' committee expect to
raise $60,000, of which over $39,000 has al
ready been subscribed, and every cent will
be needed. The books of the committee
show that more posts have been booked
and quartered than at any previous en
campment so far ahead of the date ol
meeting. The number disposed of tbu
early is unprecedented, and presages, in
the opinion of the committee, an atten
dance of 300,000 people.
Officer Will Ride Horseback.
One of the features of the parade will b
the unusually large number of mounted
officers. In this respect the encampment
will eclipse anything ever seen in the his
tory of the Grand Army. The staff of the
commander -in chief aggregates fully 20C
men and all of them will be mounted.
The same can be said ot the various de
partment commanders. Another feature
of the parade will be the addition for th
first time of the National Association of
Naval Veterans. This body contains
a membership of several thousand and
their yearly meeting will be held in Balti
more the same week of the encampment.
On the day of the parade they propose to
come to Washington in a body and par
ticipate. No Postponement of Date.
A statement has been sent throughout
the country from Chattanooga to the effect
that, owing to the conflict of dates of the
encampment and the celebration there
attending the opening of Chickamauga
park, the encampment had been postponed
to the week of Sept. 27. Similar state
ments relative to other gatherings have
also been circulated, but there is no troth
in them. The twenty-sixth national en
campment will be held in this city during
the week of Sept. 20.
BAFFLED BY THE DETECTIVES.
A Woman's Life Saved and Her Hus
band's Plot Fx posed.
Newark. N. J., April 11. Frank Dami
ano, who keeps a saloon on Market street,
was arrested late Saturday night charged
with attempting to poison his wife. But
for the good work of the police he would
have accomplished his criminal design.
Early last week the superintendent of po
lice. Brown, received word from a whole
sale drug house in New York that two men
from Newark had purchased five pounds
of arsenic. The salesman did not like theif
looks, and mistrusted them, although they
aaid the poison was for manufacturing pur
poses. Detectives met the men at the
Market street station of the Pennsylvania
railroad, and followed them to Damiano's
place, where they parted, Damiauo's com
panion taking the package with him. H
took it to Waverly, one of the suburbs o4
this city, where he hid the arsenic in an
old and uninhabited building.
Changed the Medicine for Them.
After he left the officers took the pack
age to police headquarters, leaving in iti
place a similar package containing tartat
emetic. The next day Damiauo's com
panion was seen to go to the package,
open it, and take out a quantity of th
supposed arsenic, with which he went di
rectly to Damiano's place. There it wa
placed in a bottle partly filled with
whisky, and, according to Mrs. Damiano't
story, the men let her 10 cents she could
not drink two glasses of it. Mrs. Damiano
drank the stuff and was immediately
taken very sick. She says that her hus

COOPER WANTS TO BE HEARD.
He Thinks an Explanation from Him is
Washington, April 1L -During the ses
sion of the Enloe committee Saturday
Representative Cooper said that while he
was visiting his home in Indiana he saw
references to bis name and had not had the
time to look over the testimony submitted
by General Raum, and he also wanted to
look up some records in the pension office,
after which, he would like an opportunity
to make a statement to the committee in
regard to General Raum's recent testi
mony, which he characterizes as a direct
attack upon himself. On the face of it, he
said, there were some things which looked
aa though an explanation was necessary.
This he could give satisfactorily.
He Was a "Fresh Fish."
J. W. Donohue, a clerk in the pension
office, was called to tell what he knew of
money-lending transactions in the bureau.
It appeared that witness obliged a number
of employes by endorsing notes for them,
and came out the loser. When asked why
the employes came to him so often witness
said it was because he was what was called
a "fresh fish." " You are 'well salted down'
now?1 remarked Mr. Dungan. Witness
went into details of the notes he had en
dorsed for various persons in the office,
who borrowed from a money lender named
