The Twin City Columbian Fourth of
July ce ebratiCQ this year will be on a
scale ol magnificence and grandeur never
before undertaken in this eection of Illi
nois. Plans are already well under way
for put ing the Columbian grounds in
shaite, he informal dedication of which
this demonstration is to be. The con
tract or grading baa already been let by
Chairman Davis and work will commence
Monday. Tomorrow morning at the
office o E. H. Guyer the contract will be
let for :he completion of the grand stand
with tl e stipulation that the structure
be completed by July Fourth. Then
things will hum at the grounds, and by
I. . r I. . . i ...
I iu cj me great nay we ceieDrate ar
rives everything will be in readiness at
j the gr unds for the accommodation and
, entertsinment of the multitudes
which will be drawn hither. The adver
j Using committee has nihd-j provision for
the proper material for advertising the
occasii n, and it will be out in due season,
I and when it does a few neigbbDring cities
j which have stolen our thunder and at
j tempK d to rival the Twin City celebra
I tion will find that they are not in it. It
is on account ot the attempts of these
other cities to take advantage of plans
formu ated here, that the advertising mat
ter detailing the beauties of the celebra
tion here most of which are novel and
different entirely from anything ever at
tempt :d in the .northwest it is just as
well it has been somewhat delayed in
comin x out.
Pret ident Ltuderback of the street rail
way s.'Stem is hurrying the construction
of additional motors and trailers, so that
the ra lway facilities on this occasion w;ll
be abundant for all purposes. Mr.
Louderback stated last night that
the double track on Thirty
Eighth street wiil be at once extended
aroun 1 on Seventh avenue us far as For
ly thi-d street, and it is not improbable
thati' the Columbian association per
mits, i track will be extended m-iking a
circui of the grounds, going north from
Sever th avenue on Forty-third or Forty
fourth street rnd to Molice avenue, and
comii g down past the old Brooks' home
stetd and tapping the Third avenue line
at Br toks' crossing.
Th.' fact that the weather has shown
evhic ices of settling, and that Moline
avi ni e is again in condition for work, it
is hieh time that Edward & Welsh were
resun.ing paving operations east of Thir-ty-eii.'hlh
street, in couformily with their
promises. The avenue should be paved
us fa- as Brooks' crossing at least, by
the Fourth, and it will be if the contract
ors n v disposed to show the spirit of
pride in the city and in their work that is
cxpei ted of them.
The Cable llonnmcnt.
The work of erecting the beautiful
! mom ment which is the tribute of Con
gressman Ben T. Cable to his father, was
commenced at the Cable lot in Chippian
ock c emetery under Mr. Cable's direc
tion yesterday, and will probably be
completed today. Contractor Larkin,
with a force of men and a derrick is put
ting the monument in place, which in
magnificence of design and structure is un
equa ed in this part of the country.

How the Vote On Credentials
THE FIELD AGAINST THE PEESIDENT
Co. Sterling. 111.
Vote Probable Today Opposition Look
ing Aronnd for Some One to Concen
trate Upon Booni That Do Not De
velop Hold Movement Kngineered by
"lone" Jones An Open Caucus of
Harrison Men to Count Votes The
Figures Put at 331 on the First Ballot
"Dick" Thompson's Hirthday.
Minneapolis, June 9. It looks like
Harrison if he can win early in the ballot
ing, or like McKinley if the voting be pro
longed. The Blaine forees are ready to go
Blaine was practically beaten last night,
and though bis managers have not aban
doned their candidate their efforts now
are devoted principally to defeating Har
rison. A ballot is expected this afternoon. The
plans of the Blaine managers have failed
in two vital points. First, they were to
seat all, or nearly all, of the contestants
from the south, and by thus adding to
their actual strength aud overawing with
their display of power carry the day by
Credentials Was Conservative.
But the committee on credentials,
which they had hoped to control, proved
to be a conservative body. Neither Blaine
nor Harrison had absolute control of it.
While the finding of the committee gives
the Blaine forees a net gain of eight votes,
the gain is insufficient to save the day for
the Maine statesman. His reprt-sen itives
had counted upon a gain of at least forty
votes from this source. The drop to eight
votes was fatal. The Harrison lines are
standing firm, except in the case of some
of the southern delegations.
"Anything to Beat Harrison."
The Blaine managers changed their tac
tics with them. The struggle had become
one of "anything to beat Harrison." If
Alger could be kept in the race, McKinley,
Allison, Cullom and Reed be pushed for
ward as candidates, the field might be
divided up and the president's nomination
prevented. The result of their efforts in
this direction is a disappointment. Alger
stands, but does not grow, and his sup
porters are restless. McKinley declines to
stand as an avowed candidate, but the
convention continues to look more and
more at him as a finality.
Allison lne-iit Develop.
The great cfTorts maile to start an Alli
son boom have not as yet succeeded. By
the time balloting is reached the McKin
ley votes in Ohio may lie greatly in
creased. Meanwhile the Blaine men have
agreed to stand by their colors. The Husk
boom doesn't materialize, either, and the
ho:e is that Blaine votes will go to Mc
Kinley or other dark horses in numbers
small, but sufficient to induce a larger
number of Harrison votes to swerve at the
same time. That seems to be the situa
tion. IS IN THE RACE TO THE END.
Harrison's Friends state His Position A
The following note, which is self ex
planatory, was received by the United
Press yesterday afternoon: "Since it has
been demonstrated by the unanimous ex
pression of a large maj.trity of the dele
gates to the national convention, at a
meeting held today, that President Harri
son is their choice as the leader of the
party in the impending campaign, the
question has been asked by delegates un
favorable to him whither his friends
would consider the expediency of his retir
ing and joining in the nomination of a
new man. The uniform reply has been,
and will continue to be to the end, that
the Judgment of the party having been
definitely ascertained to be favorable to
his candidacy, his supporters w ill not par
ticipate in any efforts to reverse that
judgment. At no time will there be any
consideration by them of any other candi
date. L,. t. Micbeneb."
"Long" Jones' Hold Conception.
The "meeting held to-day"' referred to
in the foregoing was a caucus of the
friends of Harrison, which is said to
have been conceived by "Hong" Jones, of
Illinois, who was one of the famous "300"'
in lS$n. The "30tT held caucuses during
that convention, but they were secret,
while yesterday's was open and Jones said
of it: "This is the first instance in my re
collection that the friends of any candi
date ever were bold enough to hold a cau
cus in broad daylight to demonstrate their
strength." The caucus was held at Cen
tral Market hall immediately after the
adjournment of the morning session of
They Passed the Word Around.
Word was passed round in the conven
tion hall that the caucus would beheld
and the Harrison leader enjoined to have
all their men on hand. At the caucus an
open poll was taken and gave 5i) votes;
but at 0 p. m. the figures were revised and
gave S21 stated this way: Alabama, T:

Jones Explains His Operations.
Long Jones said yesterday: "I organ
ized a committee of one from each state
and territory to ascertain the vote for Pres
ident Harrison. The first meeting was on
Monday night at 10 o'clock. The result of
that poll was 488. At a meeting the fol
lowing night it was 511; the third night,
520. Last night, with instructions to throw
out every possible doubting vote and all
contests against Harrison, bed-rock fig
ures gave us 511 votes. Then I announced
to the committee that there would be a
meeting of the Harrison delegates at Mar
ket ball, on the main street of Minneap
olis, immediately after the adjournment
of today's morning session."
Blaine Men Not Alarmed.
The Blaine men treated the caucus as a
bluff aud named numbers of delegates
Present thereat who they said were Blaine
debates. Ex-Representative Burleigh,
of Nex- York The Harrison men can get
all the satisfaction ou; of the caucus that
they heU today that they want. It is
dollars to dr ghnuts that when the first
ballot is takn. in the convention the ballot
for General Harrison will not rise above
Senator Quay: Th sijrnificance of the
o-callrd liu can he appreciated when,
upon half an hour's notice, the Blaine
men can have a caucus of 2,000 people.
Chairman Clarkson: It is a bluff cold,
clammy and withal a desperate bluff.
Here are two men who were in the Harri
son caucus in Market hall, who I can
pledga my word were bot h Blaine men
and prove it by them personally.
Announcement or Col. Thompson's 83d
Just before the convention begun busi
ness Chauncey Depew arose and an
nounced that Col. R. W. Thompson, of
Indiana was celebrating his 83d birthday
anniversary. He said: "I rise to a ques
tion of privilege, not high privilege but
present privilege. We have present here
among our number a delegate who has
been a delegate to every national conven
tion of the Republican party since its
inauguration, who has voted for every
president of the United States
for the last Rixty years, and who has
served with distinction in the cabinet, who
is today 83 years of age, in full physical
vigor. While England claims so much
for Mr. Gladstone because he is 82, Ameri
ca claims more for Col. Dick Thompson,
of Indiana. We hope he will round his
century and attend during the interven
ing period every convention of the Repub
The "Old Man Eloquent" Replies.
Griffin of Indiana seconded the motion.
The chairman called for the ayes and,
without mentioning the "noes," declared
the motion Carrie 1. There was a round of
laughter at this. Colonel Thompson rose,
while the convention cheered. Depew
went quickly down the aisle and took one
of Thompson's arms. A. C. Dawes, of St.
Joe, Mo., took the other and together they
escorted hiin to the platform. Thompson
said it made him young again to look
about the convention. He was not half
83, for he was stimulated by an undaunted
Republican spirit, and by the belief that
that party was to rule the country for
years and years to come. He had le arned
his Republicanism from revolutionary
ancestry. They had taught him that t in
first principle of Republicanism was to
look after the interests of the people.
They were lu re, he said, to lav the founda
tion of another triumph.
First Vote for Henry Clay.
He would not enter into a discussion of
political questions now. He rust- to e-x-press
his thank and to promise them that
he would meet them here or elsewhere
four years hence. Cries of "Good" and
applause. He had passed through fifteen
presidential campaigns. His firs; vote f or
a president was cast for Henry Clay, that
great protectionist, and he hoped lha tlie
time would come when the country won id
vindicate the bill "which bears your hon
ored name, sir."
At this point the electric lights went
out after a minute's flickering, leaving
the speaker's figure hardly distinguisha
ble in the blackness which wan barely re
lieved by the glow from some fifty gas
jets in the gallery. The lights blazed up
again in a minute, and Thompson finished
his remarks briefly with a eulogy of the

An Eathastastle meeting or the

The meeting of young democrats at
Turner ball last night, for the purpose of
taking the initiative steps toward organ
izing a young men ? democrtic club, was
well attc-m'ed and was a very enthusias
