Riid there will not be a man left behind in
Iowa who will not pray that Boies may

not making this campaign. It is the state

wish him to accept any such place. We
are selfish and It he is not nominated for
the presidency we will keep him at home.

BAMOB, Me., June 15. Blaine will not
be in politics this year in any respect save
that he may appear somewhere and some- '
how show to the people of Maine that he
desires the return next winter by the state
legislature of Senator Hale. There is no
truth in the rumor that Blaine will enter
the senate himself. All day Saturday he
worked in his garden with a

A Hill Boomer on Hand.
Charles F. Peck, of New York, is the
first Hill boomer to arrive. A badge on
which eras prominently displayed a pics,
ore of New York's Democratic senator was
worn Conspicuously by the Xcw Yorker
when he arrived at the Auditorium yes-1
today. Mr. Peek is state commissioner;
of the bureau of statistics of labor, aud
although not a delegate is one of Hill's
most earnest and effective workers. He
was advised yesterday by .Senator Hill
that the latter would not be in Chicago to
attend the convention.
Kither Cleveland orGorasasu
Senator YV. F. Sanders, of Montana,
Who is at the Auditorium, believes that
success in the the approaching convention
lies lietween Cleveland and Gorman. The
senator is recently from Washington and
said that before his leaving the capital a
good SSBed boom had been started for the
senator from Maryland. "Senator Gor
man is a very popular man," said Senator
Sanders, "and an adroit politician. Just
keep your eye on him from now until the
convention is closed."
Other New Yorkers Coming.
Colonel John Tracy, who is at the
Grand Pacific, expects Colonel Robert G.
Monroe, secretary of the New York Cleve
land delegation, to reach the city this
evening, and ex-Mayor Grace and ex-Secretary
of the Treasury Fairchild tomor- j
row. The main body of the Cleveland
men, 500 strong, will flood the Grand P.'.- )
cific on Saturday.
Arranging the Preliminaries.
Secret arv S. I. Sherin and Scrgeant-at-
Arms Bright, who are busily arranging
for the meeting on Friday of the national
committee at the Palmer house headquar
ters, spent much of yesterday inspecting
the progress of the work at the wigwam
made necessary by the storm of Monday. '
Sherin expressed himself absolutely confi- '
dent that despite the delay the building'
wonld le completed in ample time for the
convention today, and the indications are
that the field is in the majority. The field,
however, it not concentrated on any one
man. Some of the delegates favor Hill,
others ex-Secretary Whitney, a few Gov
ernor nosrer, but the great bulk of the
anti-Cleveland delegates are non-committal
beyond the statement that they fs
vor any man, castor west, that stands a
show of carrying Xcw York, but that they
do not think either Cleveland or Hill is
that man. Campbell and Dries will he
delegates-at-large. Campbell is for Cleve
land, but Drice will go entirely unpledged.

NEW Yokk. June 15. The mysterious'
Conference iield Monday lietween Senator ,
Hill and bis lieutenants has been a matter
for speculation among the politicians ever !
since. The confident prediction of the
senator's supporters that he will positive
ly receive the nomination at Chicago is
puzzling ti a great many who are not on
the "inside." it is believed that the Hill
men have something of a surprise for the
Cleveland advocates which will not come
to light r.nti! the ecu vent ion is in session.
It is said (hat the Hill men are quietly at
work perfect iiu; a strong organization,
and that they will go to Chicago pre
wired to a make deep impression upon the
uu instructed delegates.
They Claim the Indianiang.
It is also asserted by the Hill supporters
that they have won the eighteen Indiana
delegates over by promising them second
place on the ticket for Gray. The anti
Hill oran'.z i! io.i does not propose to be
forgotten at Chicago, It is now actively
at work preparing its programme and de
clares confidence in Cleveland's success.
The anti-snap delegates will start for Chi
cago Sat unlay. They have secured ac
commodations for 5U0 persons at the
Grand Pacific hotel. It is expected that
1,000 Cleveland sympathizers will go to
the convention from this state.

in this city, and agreeing to make every
thing comfortable right away.
