Chairman Clarkson Puts in a

Chicago, May 18. J. a Clarkson,
chairman of the national Republican com
mittee, was at the Grand Pacific yester
day, en route from Hot Springs with his
wifetoXew York city, where they will
meet their children. He was looking well
and said he could sleep without an opiate
and eat a square meal. "The newspapers
have had me in several big political con
spiracies of late," said Mr. Clarkson, "and
I can scarcely make amove but that I
am reported to have held a secret confer
ence with this or that politician and 'fixed
things. Chauncey JL Filley met me in St.
Louis yesterday and I was at once put
down as having plotted with Mr. Filley.
Not a Party to Any Conspiracy.
"The truth of the matter is 1 haven't
looked at a particle of correspondence for
two months and neither have I in that
time touched a newspaper. I am going to
Minneapolis to vote for some one, but I
don't care to state for whom I am going to
vote. I can tell better when I get there.
But as for being a party to any conspiracy
in favor of Blaine, Sherman or Harrison, I
desire to enter a protest. The 7,000,000 of
Republicans who will be represented at
Minneapolis have not made up their minds
regarding their candidate. The results of
the conventions held in the different states
clearly show this.
Be "Alludes at" the President.
"There will be more uninstructed dele
gates in the Minneapolis convention than
has ever been known in the history of the
Republican party. The northern states
and the states which cast the electoral
votes which will elect have almost every
one of them sent nni Detracted delegates.
The majority of the uninstructed delegates
comes from the southern states. Some of
the able editors and Federal office holders
claim the nomination is settled already.
They are entitled to their opinions, and I
will not quarrel with them, but I certain
ly do not think the question of the nomi
nation is settled. The facts tell a different
But Couldn't be Drawn Oat.
"Then you don't think Mr. Harrison
will be nominated on the first ballot r0--""
"Now you cannot draw me out as to
whom I think will be nominated. With
out much doubt there will be several bal
lots cast. The man must be very popular
who would secure the nomination on the
first ballot when such a large proportion
of the delegates are uninstructed." Who
ever was nominated, however, Mr. Clark
son was sure he would be elected. He de
clined to put up a Democratic nominee.
TWO DEMOCRATIC CONVENTIONS.
Delaware Doesn't Instruct but Baa a
Favorite Son California.
DOVER, Del., May 18. The Democratic
state convention met yesterday and elect
ed the following delegates to the Chicago
convention: General R. R. Kinney, Gov
ernor R. J. Reynolds, Thomas T. Bayard,
Hiram Borie, Jno. W. Causey and W. L.
Sirman. R. H. Hill was elected perman
ent chairman of the convention, but was
taken ill and T. F. Dilworthy substituted.
The platform is a tariff reform declaration
with a plank against free silver and for a
stable dollar that will "go" anywhere in
Would Like to See a Gray Boom.
Cleveland's administration is referred
to as a blessing to the whole country,
which diffused a spirit of restored brother
hood throughout a union of co-equal
states and maintained peace with honor
without large and costly outlays with for
eign nations." The delegates goto Chicago
uninstructed, but they are for Cleveland.
However, they will preferably espouse
the presidential cause of Senator George
Gray, if a boom for the latter should be
REPUBLICAN COLLEGE STUDENTS.
They Bava an Enthusiastic Time Organ
ising m League.
ASN Arbor, Mich., May 18. Represen
tatives of forty colleges met here yester
day to organize a Republican league of

of the "boys" was Governor McKinley,'
who arrived at noon and was given a
rousing reception. Besides McKinley

The Convention Organised.
The convention was called to order by
James F. Burke, president of Michigan
University Republican club. An address
at welcome was extended on behalf of the
local clnb by A. . Ewlng. A temporary
organization was effected with R. B. Dra
per, of Albion, chairman, and J. W. EweL
of Purdue, Ind., secretary, who were suc
ceeded aa permanent officers of the con
vention by C. R. Spooner, of Princeton,
chairman, and E. E. Brown, of Madison,
Summary of the Platform.
A platform was adopted which stated
that the object of the organisation was to
bring college men more actively into poli
tics, the principles enn undated being the
dissemination of literature for educa
tion of the people; -establishing university
extension in every section of the onion;
encouragement of young Americans to be
come masters of the science of govern-
"t; to fijrht for principles, not for mer-

to elevate the standard ot American poli
tics and to use their influence in efforts to
secure the, advancement of Republican
principles, and success of Republican can
didates. Blaine and Barrison Indorsed.
Resolutions were adopted indorsing
Harrison's administration, and especially
the part conducted by James G. Blaine;
indorsing protection as expounded in the
McKinley act; recognizing James G. Blaine
as the greatest living statesman. The
election of officers for the year resulted as
follows: James F. Burke, Michigan uni
versity, president; J. D. Wallingford, Le
land Stanford university, and three other
vice presidents; B. B. McAlpin, Princeton,
treasurer; J. J. McGuire, Michigan uni
versity, sergeant-at-arms. Among the
delegates to the National League conven
tion are: Weaver, Iowa State university;
Brown, University of Wisconsin; NoeL
Purdue university, and Peet, Michigan
Mass Meeting and Banquet.
The convention then adjourned. A pro
cession was formed in the evening which
marched to University hall, where Mc
Kinley addressed an audience of 8,500 peo
ple. The rink where the banquet was
held was a brilliant scene, 1,000 enthusias
tic Republicans and their ladies being
seated under handsome canopies of drap
ery. The banquet served was a fine one.
The audience was entertained by each of
the colleges giving their various yells in
turn. Responses were made by General
Alger, John M. Thurston, J. Sloat Fassett,
William E. Mason, Governor McKinley
The Sentiment for Cleveland.
Feesso, Cal., May 18. The feeling of
the Democratic state convention which
met in the opera house here yesterday is
overwhelmingly in favor of Cleveland.and
the prevailing sentiment seems to be for
instruction of the delegates for him. But
if it does not actually instruct for Cleve
land will indorse him so that the dele
gates can hardly refuse to vote for him.
Whenever his name was mentioned in
speeches the convention went wild. Tem
porary organization only was effected,
with B. D. Murphy as chairman, and ad
journment was taken for the day.
A S50 Note that Passed Through a New
Tork Bank All Right.
New York, May 18. A particularly fine
counterfeit was detected at the sub
treasury Monday. It is the production of
a pen-and-ink artist, who did his work
so well that the bill passed through one
of the city banks without any suspicion
arising as to its genuineness. At the sub
treasury its character was at once discov
ered. The counterfeit is of a toO green
back, of the series of 1880. In the first
place the operator photographed a genu
ine bill, getting a light picture, but suffi-
sequent proceedings, men ne went over
the photograph with ink, in the end turn
ing out a marvelously fine piece of work.
The coloring is excellent, the design clear
ly reproduced, and the lettering far more
accurate than is usually the case.
Was Somewhat Conscientious.
The paper is good and has almost the
right "feeL" Of course, one or two details
were neglected, but they are not of a
kind to attract attention. "Act of March
8. 1863," appearing over the vignette of
Franklin on the genuine bill, was omitted
on the counterfeit. "Engraved and print
ed at the bureau of engraving and print
ing" is also missing, possibly because the
artist did not care to burden his soul
with unnecessary lies. Considering the
time and era necessary to turn out the
bill it is doubtful if the counterfeiter
profited greatly by his labors. The count
erfeit was inspected by a number of bank
ers and received the respectful considera
tion it deserved.
I. THE METHODIST CONFERENCE.
Denunciation of Southern Outrages on
Negroes Officers Elected.
Omaha, May 18. In one hour yesterday
the Methodist conference put on record
some resolutions relating to the treatment
ot negroes in the south that were decided
ly "ringing." It was stated in the debate
that 159 negroes had met death by mobs in
the south last year, seven of whom had
been burned alive, one flayed alive and
one disjointed. This was vigorously de
nounced, as was the "Jim Crow" car, and
congress asked to suppress such doings.
The resolutions were adopted unanimous
ly by a rising vote. Election of officers
followed and the following were lucky in
the balloting: Agents of the New York
Book Concern, Sanford Hunt and Homer
Eaton; Cincinnati Concern, Earl Crans
ton; secretaries of missionary boards, C. C.
McCabe, J. O. Peck, and A. B. Leonard.
The other elections went over. While the
ballots were being counted other business
was transacted, as follows: Missionary
bishops made ex-officio members of the
missionary boards, with expenses; resolu
tion offered that the constitution of the
church can only be changed in the mode
and to the extent authorized therein; re
port in favor of provision for kneeling in
Order of Railway Telegraphers.
Chattanooga, May 18. The annual
convention of the Order of Railway Tele
graphers got organized yesterday and
listened to the reports of the grand chief and
secretary. There was nothing sensational
in the chiefs address. The secretary's re
port shows 22,508 members in good stand
ing. The protective fund amounts to $80,
00U and the treasury's general fund is $40,
000. The circulation of the official organ
semi-monthly is 30,000. The visiting dele
gates and their local brethren indulged in
a dance last night at the Southern hoteL
All business meetings of the convention
are strictly private.
Thought It a Bad Precedent.
Cikcinnati. May 18. A mob of fully
seventy-five determined women caused in
tense excitement in the streets of Coving
ton, Ky., Monday morning. The purpose
of the women was to prevent a wedding.
They succeeded. The objection to the
marriage lay in the fact that the woman
had buried her husband ouly two week
ago. The demonstration by the indig
nant neighbors was so full of determina
tion that the man who was to be the bride
groom hastily fled by .the back way and ihv
widow herself left the house to prevent
