CHICAGO, June 15. The few delegates
who are hereto attend the national Demo
era tic convention divide their time in
booming their favorites and talking Dp
the matter of temporary and permanent
chairman of the convention. The local
Democratic leaders also take a hand in
the latter business. The two names most
mentioned now are ex-Gov. Campbell
snd Clayton E. (rafts; Henry Wsttemoa
Is also mentioned. Crafts has no national
reputation yet, his achievements having
been so far confined to the Illinois legisla
tare; but there is no doubt that his selec
tion would please the Chicago Democracy,
even if it were only for temporary chair
man; and that is the way the talk runs
Crafts for temporary and Campbell for
Vest Solid for Cleveland.
"I was going to say 1 was almost out of
politics," said Senator Vest, the Missouri
champion of the ex-president, "but I guess
n't Quite as bad as that. Bnt I can't
give you any pointers on the situation. In
fact, I am not here to attend the conven
tion, my presence here at this time being
merely a coincidence. Hut I can tell you
one thing, and that is that G rover Cleve
land will, in my opinion, le the Demo
cratic nominee. Everything seems to
point that way. The Missouri delegation
will vote for him solidly first and last."
The senator said he would not attend the
Another Missouri Man.
C. F. Cochran, editor of the St. Joseph,
Mo., Gazette, was at the Grand Pacific
yesterday in advance of tin
from his state. "There is not i
cinci in .Missouri mat. w ouui take li in as
second choice," he said, "in preference to
Paimer, Campbell. Gorman, Botes or any
other possibility. The Missouri delega
tion is largely in favor of Cleveland, but
they can be brought to the support of an
other candidate if they find any good rea
son why such action should be taken. No
power on earth Could force them, however,
to aid in the nomination of Hill."
The Cleveland-Hill 1 i(.tit.
Peck, the Hill worker from New York
said yesterday: "i have too high an opin
ion of Mr. Cleveland, under the existing
Circumstances, to believe that he will al
low his name to be presented to the con
vention." It goes without saying that the
Cleveland men now here laugh this to
scorn. Enthusiastic followers of Mil! are
to be among the first in the field. The
seventy-two delegates from the Hill con
vention of New York will arrived here in
a special train of several sections tomor
row in time to immediately hold a secret
caucus at the Auditorium in the evening.
The Indiana Delegation,
Austin H. Brown, of Indianapolis, End.
an old newspaper editor and at one time
a member of the national Democratic
committee from that state, arrived at the
Palmer house yesterday, Mr. Brown is a
strong Cleveland man, though he Comes
to Ciiicago to perform the work allotted
to him bv the committee and not to shout
for any candidate. He says: "I believe it
is the feeling now that the Indiana dele
gation will vote for lira y if there is any
chance for him, and if he ha- no show the
vote will ;o solidly for Cleveland."
Calmer Has Some Prospects,
Sherwood Dixon is one of the best law
yers in Illinois, and, though a Morrison
man at heart, said that he considered the
Illinois instructions as calling for avote
for Palmer until it was apparent that he
could not be nominated. Johnny Donnel
ly, who was in from Woodstock yesterday,
said that Palmer had twenty -eight Votes
out of the delegation, and the rest are
either Cleveland or Morrison men, whose
interests are i lentieaL

Dominate a state ticket and select dele-gates-at-large
to the Chicago convention.
James S. Xcal presided both as tempo
rary and pennant nt chairman, and made
a rattling speech in which the names of
Cleveland, Hill, Hrice, Osmphell, Paimer,
Gray and Boies were mentioned as good
presidential timber, and each heartily
cheered. He also spoke of Carlisle and
other possibilities, and declared the chief
issue of the campaign to be tariff re

People's Party of Kansas.
Wichita, Kans., June 16 The
pit's party state convention met here yes
terday with a good attendance. M. A.

made permanent chairman. The creden

and most of the day was spent in singing

Are Dniie Some
Ing of Ksl Imates.
Alb ax Y, Jane 16. The majority of the
people a ho are to look after Senator Hill's
interests at Chicago left the state yester
day and today. Everything possible is be
ing done to demonstrate the weakness of
Cleveland, the latest move being to an
alyze the alleged vote in the convention
as claimed by Cleveland's adherents. A
circular to be distributed among delegates
at Chicago will say that granting Cleve
land toe votes claimed on the first ballot
it is a great evidence of his weakness be
fore the convention. It will show that of
twenty-live states claimed for Cleveland
eleven are so solidly Hepublican on the
popular vote that the Democracy has uo
hope of gaining them. Of such states the
Hill people only claim four and they give
an electoral vote of fourteen, while Cleve
land's give a vote of 108.
Getting the Figures Down Fine.
In the Cleveland column as claimed will
lie found only seven straight Democratic
States, living but sixty-three electoral :
votes, while of those states that the Cieve-
land men concede to Hill nine are Demo-
cratic slates, trivimr ninetv-four electoral !
votes. In doubtful states the Cleveland
list gives Hill and Cleveland each an equal
number, but the electoral votes of those
claimed for Cleveland only foot up forty
five, while those for Hill foot up seventy
two. To summarize, the states claimed as
supporting Cleveland and that would
give a Democratic electoral vote on elec
tion day show It's electoral votes, while
those granted to Hill by his opponents
show 166 electoral votes. This argutn nt
