Their Interpretation on His Remarks
and Demeanor An Affection of the
Eyes Campbell Talks Diplomatically
Washington, May 24 Secretary Blaine's
trip to New York bas no political signifl-
tance. The statement that he goes over
to see his new granddaughter only
partly explains the reason for his journey.
The secretary ia troubled with an affection
of the eyes which has recently become
quite serious, and he goes to Xew York
for the purpose of consulting a specialist
in diseases of that character. He expects
to be absent for a couple of days only. In
Speaking of the matter the secretary said:
I never knew until I was 60 years old that
I had such an organ aa an eye, judging
from any unusual feeling there. But lat
terly my eyes have been troubling nie, and
I have felt constrained to take advice as to
Klaine Stands by His Letter.
With reference to the movement look
ing to the defeat of President Harrison
for renomination at the Minneapolis
convention by the use of the name of Sec
retary Blaine, while no direct authorita
tive statement has been made by the sec
ret aiy himself, it may be said upon the
authority of a close friend of Blaine that
he stands by the statement contained in
his letter to Chairman Clarkson of last
February. He does not desire to have his
name presented to the convention for the
nomination, and within a day or two past
has emphatically stated that he would not
be nominated. Whether or not he has
made this statement to the gentlemen
who are directing the anti-Harrison move
ment cannot, of course, be stated unless
It comes from one of them.
A Friend of the President Talks.
But the impression made by the secre
tary was that be was sincere and
would acquaint persons interested
with his feelings upon the subject. A
close friend and admirer of President Har
rison, speaking of the efforts being made
by the antagonists of the president to de
feat his renomination by the use of the
name of Secretary Blaine, said yesterday:
"The movement has nothing honest nor
sincere in it. This is apparent even to a
casnal observer when it is considered that
none of the friends of Blaine is engaged in
it. None of the gentlemen whose names
are prominently connected with the move
ment were recognized as particular friends
of the secretary when he was a candidate
for the presidency eight years ago.
Itlaine's Friends For Harrison.
"On the other hand men who are
known to be his warm admirers and
staunch supporters, such as AVLitelavv
Reid, of the New York Tribune; Charles
Emory Smith, of the Philadelphia Press;
B. F. Jones, of Pittsburc, chairman of the
national committee in 1S4; Jos. Manley.of
Augusta, Me., are all satisfied to take Mr.
Blaine at his word, and unite in express
ing their belief that he is not a candidate,
and will not be under any circumstances;
Only this morning the New York Tribune
and Philadelphia Press contained ed
itorials stating that the secretary was
not to be considered as a candidate, and
that President Harrison's renomination
was practically inevitable.
Tbe Scheme an Alger ltoom.
"The object of the movement is perfect
ly plain. These gentlemen do not have
the remotest expectation that Secretary
Blaine would accept the nomination, even
if it were tendered him. They would be
the most surprised and digusted lot of
politicians in the country if that were to
be the result of their machinations. What
they have in view and what is the sub
stance of the whole movement is the
nomination of General Alger. They kno 3
that when Secretary Blaine has been
nominated and has declined that General
Alger is probably the only man of promin
ence who would accept the nomination.
Hence it would be tendered to him by
Points to Clarkson's Candidate.
"This is a reasonable explantion at least
of what Mr. Clarkson meant when he said
in new York the other day that he had a
candidate for the nomination whose
name had been mentioned, but who was
neither Blaine, McKinley nor Sherman,
and who would be nominated by acclama
tian. This purpose of the opponents of
President Harrison has been recognized
by his friends for some days past, and
current publications alleged to be author
itative have only served to strengthen this
belief that the programme as outlined
above is tbe one upon which all the hopes
of tbe antis are based."
How L- T. Michener Views Matters.
Hon. L. T. Michener.ex-attorney general
of Indiana, known as a warm personal
friend of the president, speaking of the
political situation said last night: "The
people of tbe country ascribe to Mr. Blaine
honesty of motive and sincerity of expres
sion in his letter announcing that he
would not be a candidate for the presiden
tial nomination, and those who are now
insisting that he wrote the letter merely
to deceive the public temporarily will not
accomplish their object, which plainly is
simply to defeat the renomination of the
Harrison Not to Be Stampeded.
"Mr. Blaine's name is made a con veinence
by a few disappointed persons most of
whom were never heard of before aa his
friends. Accepting the endorsement of his
administration by the Republican conven
tions throughout the country, including
tbe instruction of a large portion of tbe
delegates, as indicating the desire of the
party, the friends of the president propose
that this desire shall not be frustrated."
Michener added, "The president will be not
any more easily stampeded than will the
THE SECRETARY AT GOTHAM.
What Ho Did on Arrival and How It Is
New York. May 24. Secretary J. G.
Blaine arrived here from Washington at
:40 o'clock last night and was driven di
rectly to the Fifth Avenue hotel. As the
secretary paused along the corridor with
Mrs. Blaine he noticed the inevitable
warm of reporters waiting an oppor
tunity to get at him, but all uncertain as
to what sort of a reception would be given
them. Blaine kindly relieved them of all
suspense by sending word that he would

Looks Fit to Fleht Sullivan.
In a few minutes after his arrival he
was the center of a group of reporters,
whom he greeted pleasantly. As he stood
there, ntraig'nt as an arrow, with a clear
eye, and vigorous expression, seemingly
conscious that his ev.Ty movement was
being critically noted, i here was nothing
to indicate anything but that of a man iu
complete health. His voice was strong
and c lear, mid as he moved about, shak
ing hands with those closest to him, he
stepped brUklr, as if tosho-.v that he was
physically equipped for atiy emergency.

When askeil the object of his visit ho
said: "1 will lie perf-.-cily frank with you,
boys. I intend to treat you fairly, as I
have found the newspaper men always
treat me fairly. My visit here has no po
litical significance whatever. I am here
for several reasons, all of which are of a
private nature, and have no relation to
politics or public business."
"Is it true that your visit here is for the
purpose of having an operation performed
on your eyes?" was naked.
"Yes, that is one of the reasons."
Smiles an Infectious Smile.
"Not," he added, quickly, "that it is aa
absolutely necessity, but I concluded that
it would be a good thing to do. Another
reason which I am glad to say induced me
to visit New.York, was my desire to see
my little granddaughter."
When asked in reference to his health,
he said with a smile: "I am Just as well as
I look, and I don't believe that I look like

was infectious and every one caught it and

His appearance and bis pleasant greet
ing put every one in good humor, and
after a few commonplace rema ks the
crowd retired. The apparent readiness of
his invitation to the newspaper fraternity
was takeu as an evidence of bis willing
ness and anxiety to show the public that

WHAT CAMPBELL DOESN'T KNOW.
Who the Chicago Convention Will Name
Washington-, May 24. Ex-Governor
Campbell, of Ohio, was in Washington
Sunday en route home from New York.
While here he was called upon by a large
number of old friends and held several
conversations of a political nature. He
was looking unusually well, and seemed
in the best of spirits. He has interests in
some of the richest mines of the north
west, and it is whispered that these later
ests will make him independently rich.
Governor Campbell said that he did not
see Cleveland during his stay in New York
and he had not met him since they had
made speeches in Rhode Island.
He thought a majority of the delegation
from Ohio would be for the ex-president
at Chicago and that Cleveland would go
into the convention with the strongest
backing. If there was a break there
could be no telling how many candidates
would spring up. Each state would have
some favorite son to present for the
"How about senator Gormanf" there
-Gorman is a very formidable candidate,
and a good man." replied Gov. Campbell,
SIMPSON LIKES LAWMAKING.
Credited With Asking Democratic Sup
port in His District.
Washington, May 24. A special from
Topeka, Kans., says that Representative
Simpson, the famous Alliance statesman,
is not only seeking a renomination from
his party, but within the last ten days has
written letters to at least half a dozen
prominent Democrats in his district, who
are understood to be friendly to him, urg
ing them to use their influence to secure
for him the indorsement of the Demo
cratic party. In a letter received by a
Harvey county Democrat Simpson admits
that unless he has the support of tbe Dem
erols his chances of re-election are slight.
Willing to Reciprocate Favors.
He has made promises to certain Demo
crats that if they will unite upon him inthe
Seventh district he will endeavor to have
tbe People's party indorse the Democratic
candidates in the First and Second dis
tricts. He has also promised his Demo
cratic lieutenant in the Seventh district
that in tbe event of the election of a
Democratic president they shall control
the patronage of the district. Mr. Simp
son will be renominated by acclamation
at tbe People's party convention at
Wichita on June 14.
The Congressional Brief. t:
Washington-, May 24. The senate dis
cussed all yesterday without taking final
action thereon the bill introduced in re
sponse to the suggestion of the president's
annual message to punish in United
States courts offenses committed against
the treaty rights of aliens. There was
only a very slim attendance on the floor,
most of tbe senators being engaged in
their committee rooms on appropriation
bills and other pressing matters.
Yesterday was District day in the house,
and the sundry civil bill was laid aside
and busiuess affecting the capital of the
nation were considered, and a number of

that had been averted, they chipped Into
