Minneapolis, June 7. The great con

last night by musical exercises and a

Got Out Too Big a Bill.
Governor McKinley, of Ohio, was billed
for an opening speech and tenor twelve
elaborate musical numlier, each good for
tweuty minutes or more were to follow. At
the end of this Depew was put down for a
ledicatory address. Governor McKinley
failed to appear and fortunately the mus

ranged, so that Depew was able to make
his address early, lie was introduced by
Governor Merriam. In opening he paid a
tribute to the hall by saying that he had

than Minneapolis to accommodate a con
vention, but this was the first hall he bad

After some comment on the record of

mother of presidents and the mistress of

TEST OF PARTY LUNG POWER.
Significant Demonstration During the
The political passages of Depew's speech
were accompanied by most significant
demonstrations. After he had run through
the list of "favorite sons," each receiving
a scanty measure of applause, he reserv
ing to the last the names of Blaine and
Harrison as belonging to no state, but to
the nation, his point was anticipated. A
voice in the gallery cried: "Blaine" and
tuch a tumultuous burst of cheering arose
that the orator was compelled to halt.
After waiting some time for the noise to
subside be finally remarked: "I'd like to
know who is making this speech." This
Caused laughter to take the place of cheers
and restored silence.
Cheers Were Abont a Standoff.

EVE OF THE CONVENTION.
Blaine Clans Haves Regular ltound-Cp
and Whoop Things.
The day before the opening of the con
vention was the signal for a gen
eral round-up of the Blaine clans;
it was a day of Blaine music and
Blaine hurrahs, o: waving of plumes
innumqrable, of "Elaine, Blains, James
G. Blaine" processioiis and pyrotechalos.
The friends of the p-esident were willing
to lie low; to be neither seen nor heard,
and let their opponei.ts have full and un
limited credit for all the conversions that
their methods coul I bring about. But
tbey did not concede that their opponents
were a single delegat a stronger than they
Were twenty-four hturs ago, while they
are further inclined to assert that the tac
tics of the day have i a reality redounded
to their own advantage.
Talk of a Sout-iern Defection.
Along toward evening there were re
ports of defections of the southern dele
gates from the Harrison side, and they
Were received with loud acclamation by
the Blaine people, find they had some
foundation in fact, f tr at least four Ten
nessee delegates, formerly Harrison men,
vent into the Blaii e camp last night.
The closest investigation, however, failed
to find that the defection was serious, and
the Harrison men cla med that they could
loose fifty votes and still nominate on the
Oglesby Make a Declaration.
A development of tl e evening was the
Seclaration of the veteran ex-Governor
Oglesby, one of the delegates-at-largefrom
Illinois, that he would not regard his in
struction as binding .n the event of a fair
number of ballots developing the fact
that the renominate n of the president
" as not a possibility. He took the ground
that it would be his duty to look at the
situation precisely as t would be regarded
under the conditions existing by the con
vention that selected lim as a delegate,
supposing that this boly was still iu ses
sion He would not say. however, that he
would vote for Blaine, but contented him
self with the statement that if he were
compelled to cease voting for Harrison his
upport would go to the candidate who
appeared to enjoy the best chance of
What Missoni-1 May Do.
Major Warner, del -gate-at -large from
Missouri, said that Mbsouri's instructions
ivere given "in view of the fact that Blaine
avis not a candidate," i.nJ added, "that is
all I can tell you. Blaine seems to be a
candidate now." Oove-nor McKinley said,
speaking of the rept rted defection of
southern delegates: "Yes, they will to p

Looking for a Dark Horse.
A noticeable fact which deserves con
sideration is this: Thai, at miduight.after
all the varying events of the day, after
test votes iu numerous delegations, after
a comparison of clai ns and tabulated
statements on both tides, the veteran
party leaders who have been made
familiar by long ex lerierice w ith the
tricks and manners of uch political gath
erings as this, are al nost a unit in the
opinion that no nomin it ion will be made
j either on the first on s cond ballot. The
j "trimmers" will scatter their votes to see
"which way the cat. jt nips." Then will
be the time to spring .i third candidate,

TELLER'S HOPE WAS VAIN.
there Was a UarrUnn Mnn Present and
He Could Talk.
A meeting of representatives of the Pa
:ific coast and neighborii g states was held
resterday afternoon at 4 o'clock at the
headquarters of the Cal fornia delegation
I in Masonic Temple. . The states and terri
tories represenu-ii were: Ualirornia,
Washington, Idaho, MoLtana, Utah. Ne
vada, Colorado, Arizon i. New Mexico,
Oregon and Wyoming. There were fifty
lix delegates present out of the total of
seventy-two to which thi-s section of the
-ountry is entitled. Senator Teller was
The Senator Make Prediction.
Before taking his sett as chairman,
Senator Teller made a speech, in the
:ourse of which he said that he thought
he moat important question by far was
the selection of a candidate who could
rry the states represented for the Re
publican party. No mutter what lite
platform, the Republicans could never
iarry Colorado, Idaho, Montana, and
Nevada with Benja i in Harrison as their
Sandidate. He hoped tha z no one present

Dr. Spencer Put In an Objection.
Dr. E. V. Spencer, of California, at this
point made it very evidet t that Harrison
had at least one friend i a the room. He
objected strenuously to be character of
Teller's remarks, and said that the presi
dent had never been accused of disregard
ing any part of the platform on which he
teas elected. He thought it ought to be
taken for granted that if re-elected he
would contiuue to obey t le will of those
ivho placed him in office. The important
thing therefore was to formulate a plat
form that would be satisfactory to the
people, and it will then bo time to nomi
nate a candidate who oan be trusted to
Barry it out if elected.
They Then Talked Blaine.
After some' desultory del ate on a ' silver
lank for the platform the meeting went
' Into eulogy of Blaine and m notable fea
ture wm fc upor, bj g atl& a rad ical
anti-silver man. and Senator Jones, a rad
ical free silver man. Jones said he would
support Blaine because he was many
sided and he didn't believe he would con
sider it his dutv to veto a free coinage bill.
Dr. Spencer had a hand in the debate and
vigorously defended the president and ad
vocated his renomination.
GOES LARGELY FOR BLAINE.
The Decision of Contests for Seat la tha
The sub-committee of the national com
mittee on the Alabama contest closed the
hearing yesterday and decided to place on
the roll the names of the Blaine delegates-at-large
and also the Blaine men from
three of the four contested districts. In
the other districts each side was allowed
one delegate. This gives, according to the
Blaine men, 17 Blaine of Alabama's 2Si
votes. On the other hand Harrison men
say they will have nine delegates, even if
all the Blaine men are seated. Brady, a
member of the sub-committee, will pre
sent a minority report ia favor of seating
the Moscly delegates, who are for Har
rison. Won hy the Kellogg Faction.
The Ixiuisiana case was decided against
the Warmoth delegates, a victory for the
Kellogg faction and Blaine. The cantests
from North Carolina were decided as
follows: In the fourth district, William
son was given the seat of Nichols; in the
sixth district, the contestants and contes
tees were each given half a vote; in the
seventh district. Dr. Mott was given a
vote and the contestees, Walzer and
Reiley, a half vote each.
Seated the Contestants.
In the Mississippi case, which was de
tided on Saturday, a motion to reconsider
ivas made and carried, nnd the contest
ants were all seated by a vote of four -o
three. The matter now goes to the full
rommittee for approval, and it Is conceded
that the action of the sub-committee in
throwing out the Harrison votes, about
forty in all, will be sustained. In the
North Carolina contests. Colonel Canaday,
committeeman, says that no change in the
rote for president will be effected by the
sc-tiou of the committee.
Fassett Selected for Chairman Over Sen
The finessing for place by the Blaine
snd Harrison leaders in connection with
;he temporary organization of the conven
tion was brought to n close at a late hour
last night in the national committee.
The first business entered upon was that
f the election of temporary chairman.
The Harrison men had finally centered
ipon Senator Cullom, General Horace
Porter, of New York, having declined to
jermit the use of his name. Fassett. after
Saving once announced that he would not
De a candidate for the position, was in
iuced to reconsider his determination at
the request of the New York delegation,
and early in the day it was understood
shat he would be the candidate of the
The Vote AT a Hardly a Test.
Fassett and Cullom were formally pnt
.Ti nomination and a vote was taken and
showed that some of the committet men
did not vote as their states will vote in
jonveutiou if they keep of the same mind
as they were yesterday. The national
jommittee is undoubtedly against Harri
son and the vote stood: Fassett, "-; Cul
lom, 21. It had been announced that the
Harrison men would not make a strong
fight for temporary chairman, as the dele
gates select all the committees, and the
posit ion was not one to fight for. A sub
committee was nnpoiuted to select the
Vher temporary officers.
The Oilier Oftlrers Chosen.

work and reported, and the report was

The report of thecommittee on contested

most of yesterday listening to a speech by
Vest on the free wool bill, during which
he discussed the silver question, the tariff
and reciprocity. No other business was
transacted. Seven important measures
were passed by the house under suspen
sion of the rules. Among the measures
passed were: The anti-option bill (fifteen
minutes debate); the resolution placing
the river and harbor bill and the naval ap

tion for the purchase of a site and the
erection of a pedestal for a statue to Gen
eral Sherman; bills admitting New Mex
ico and Arizona as states, and finally the
legislative, executive an i judicial appro

and a number of Democrats, including
Cummings of New York and Herbert of
Alabama, vigorously opposed the anti-option
bill, Cummings .reminding the house
of the fact that the "Tom Reed" congress
gave six days for debate on the force bill.
