Washington, June 9. The interview
with the president recently printed it ia
now contended was not in any sens
authorized. The president was not aware
that he was being interviewed for publi
cation. This Interview is said to hare
done much toward inducing Blaine to
make up his mind to resign and enter the
contest at Minneapolis. It was not pre

Credentials Asks More Time.
Thanks lieing duly returned for this
unique emblem of parliamentary authori
ty, the regular order was taken up and re
ports of committees called for. Creden
tials wanted more time and was gratified,
saying that no report could be made before
today. There was

was gracefully introduced by Kas-et, who
thanked the convention for its forbear
ance in his own case.
Had to Wail for Three Cheer.
The chairman on stepping rward to
address the convention got as far as 'Gen
tlemen" when some, one cried. "Three
cheers for McKinley." and everybody
cheered. No doubt in the world that Mc
Kinley is popular. He began speaking
extempore as soon as quiet was restored.
The central idea of his remarks was that
the Republican party was one of action;
that its principles it crvstalized into stat
utes; that it meant what it said, and made
laws of its platforms: that when there
was anything to be done the Republican
party was called on to do it and made no
failures. The first platform, adopted
thirty-six years ago. was law now, every
plank of it, and it read today more like
an inspiration than anything else.
Sonic Comments on the Tariff.
Of course a speech from McKinley silent
on the tariff would be a monstrosity in ora
tions. He wanted to know what tariff re
form meant and referred to utterances of
Grover Cleveland, Springer, and Mills on
that subject as differing totally from
each other. Then there was the house in
the Fifty-second congress, elected distinct
ly on a tariff reform issue with two thirds
majority. It had passed three bills, one '
taxed raw material and made the finished !
product free; another gave free wool to the !
manufacturers and taxed cloth to the con- !
Burners. The other gave free cotton ties
to the south and taxed hoop iron to the rest
of the country. He closed with an earnest
appeal for a free franchise all over this
Went a Little Too Fast.
Cheers greeted the chairman as soon as
he took his seat and the delegates called
loudly for Fred Douglass, who came for
ward and bowed his thanks. The rules
committee then reported t he rules of the
Fifty-first congress, anl the report was
both adopted and cheered. Foraker asked
more time for the resolutions committee
and got it. After the roll of states was
called for national committeemen, and va
rious petitions and resolutions had been
appropriately teferred the chair said the
next thing was the nomination of candi
dates for president. This was 'crowding
the mourners," and Cullom arose and
called attention to the rule that provides
that nominations are not in order until
after the committees on credentials and
resolutions report. Tho convention then
adjourned for the day.
LATEST CLAIMS OF LEADERS.

the host and Quay Clarkson, I'latt and
others who are prominent in the Blaine
ranks. Details were refused, but the sen

carefully and that there were 4ST fot

"How many votes are involved in the
contests, Senator Quay."
"I have forgotten the exact figures

the matter if they all go one way."

Said to Have Keen Misquoted.
This interview has been much criticised
by the press. The chief point of criticism
has been the alleged expression of the
president relating to the award of honors
j due the administration. In this respect
the president is said to have been mis
i quoted in the interview. The question
( ari-c-, why did not the president repudi

He further remarked that there would be
no delay of proceedings, believing that the
better course to the attainment of theil
object lay in pressing an early couclasion

More Talk of a Dark Horse.
The talk kite last night was more decid
edly towards a dark horse than ever. The
announced accessions to the Blaine 1
strength during the day, although not
numerous, have served

Harrison and Blaine will be so close as to
make the nomination of either an impos

the one most generally mentioned in this
connection, while ex-Speaker Keed and
Senator Allison have many friends.

Hon. Rufus S. Frost of the Massachu
setts delegation, was seen in regard to the
possibility of a mo-ement in behalf of
McKinley. He said that he thought the
Blaine men were behind the attempts go
ing on in several delegations to secure
complin.enatry vote for favorite sons on
the fir-t ballot. While this was in itself
a sign of weakness it was evident that the
effort was meeting with better success
than the direct movement in behalf of
Blaine, aud he would not lie surprised to

either to Reed or McKinley.

CREDENTIALS COMMITTEE WORK.
Harrison Men Trove To Be in a Small
The nomination of a candidate for the
presidency by the Republican convention
may turn upon the action of the commit
tee on credentials. There are aboutsixty
votes involved in the contests pending be
fore that committee. In the Louisiana
delegation the contest involves 12 of the
16 delegates; in Alabama 14 delegates are
involved out of a total of 22. In the states
of Mississippi and Texas there are also con -tests,
in the former 0 delegates being in
volved, and in the latter nearly the entire
delegation. The political significance of
the Texas contest, however, will hardly
have any special bearing upon the result,
as the decision not to recognise the white
man's Republican party eliminates them
from consideration in t hi-connection.
Much Depend on the Report.
In Maryland there are two delegates, in
Kentucky "2. in North Carolina 5, and in
South Carolia the whole delegation of 19.
In Georgia 2 delegates are at issue, and in
Ctah '2 delegates. In the latter case there
is no doubt that the Blaine men will be
seated, their claim being conceded by all
and sustained by prtvious action of the
national committee. The fact that the
credentials committee up; tears to have a
Blaine majority is a tender point to the
Harrison men. and a point of much inter
est to the Blaine men. The committee
