Washington-, May 30. The return of
Secretary Blaine to Washington has trans
ferred from New York to the nat ional cap
ital the center of interest in the presiden
tial campaign. There are all sorts of ru
mors current rejecting the intentions oj
the secretary of stute, but so far as can be
learned they are all w ithout foundation;
one was that he had determined to resign
from the cabinet; another was that he had
prepared a statement setting forth his in
tentions with respect to the nomination;
a third was that with friend9 he was hold
ing a conference to determine upon a
course of action. None of these proved to
be well founded.
