"t the Matter From the Union and
Chicago, June IT. The sub-committee
of the National Democratic committee
will hold an important meeting at the
Palmer house today. The meeting will
practically decide who will be temporary
chairman of the convention, although no
selection will be made until Monday. The
members of the sub-committee are Henry
Watterson, chairman, and Senators Brice,
of Ohio; Gorman, of -Maryland, and Ran
som, of North Carolina. The late Senator
Harbour, of West Virginia, was a mem
ber of this sub-committee, and the vacancy
will be filled by the West Virginia delega
tion which will select one of its number
tor the place.
They've At Against Cleveland.
Every member of the committee is op
posed to the nomination of Cleveland, and
it Is doubtful if any candidate with pro
nounced pro-Cleveland views will be ac
corded the honor of temporarily presiding !
at the convention. Three names were sug- j
gested yesterday for the consideration of
the committee. The were Senator Daniel
Voorhees, of Indiana; Ad lai Stevenson, of .
Illinois, ami Clayton K. Crafts, speaker of j
the lower house of the Illinois legislature. I
Governor James E. Campbell, of Ohio, 1
was also talked of, but it Is believed that j
he is slated for the permanent chairman-j
ship. Governor Campbell will have the
support of Senator Brice. that gentleman ,
having declared peace with hi" old enemy.
Watterson on the Candidate.
Henry Watterson was the first nu mber1
of the sub-committee to put in an appear
ance yesterday. He registered at the Pal-
teer House. Watterson talked guardedly

the conventions of tin- day before which
were held in Ohio and Louisiana. He was
overjoyed that the Cleveland men had
been defeated in I heir ittcnpts to have
the delegations Instructed for the ex -president.
He said: "1 guess Camp
bell wouldn't lie averse to se
eming the nomination. He would
make a strong candidate and we
could have strong hopes of electing the
ticket if he headed it. Hut then there is
no lack of availvble candidates."
The Cleveland ami Mill Lieutenants.
Tiie lirst prominent leaders of the Cleve
land ami Hill movements arrived yester
day. The Hill men were Lieut. Gov. shee
han, Richard Crokerand Edward Murphy,
.Jr. But one Of Grovet1 Cleveland's chief
lieutenants arrived yesterday Charles F.

In the meantime the arrangi meats of tl.e
Cleveland men are being pushed forward
as rapidly as possible. Col. John Tracy,
with a corps of typewriter girls, is con
ducting a "literary bureau" at the Grand
Pacific with great energy, and the decora
tion of the headquarters at the Palmer
house is progressing satisfactorily. It
was the general opinion among the Cleve
land men that it would have been better
for their cause iiad their men been the
first to arrive.
Calvin S. Brice, chairman of the Demo
cratic national committee, arrived iu the
city yesterday afternoon. He says that the
Ohio delegation has no particular presi
dential preference, but that after survey
ing the situation it will support the most
available candidate solidly.
The Tress Committee Comes West,
The press committee for the convention
has transferred it headquarters from
Washington to 137 Monroe street, Chi
cago, where all tickets will be issued June
20 to newspaper men who have applied
and are entitled to seats.
A HILL MAN'S STATEMENT.
Ground of New Tork Opposition to Cleve
land. Edward Murphy, Jr., of Troy. N. V.,
delegate atdarge to the convention, and
at present and for the past six years chair
man of the Democratic state committee,
made a statement to the pre last night
detailing ids reasons tor the belief thai if
nominated Cleveland could not cany New
AVrk state. Murphy'6 reasons for so Ije
lieving are in brief that, lirst. the New
York Democracy Is simply anti-Cleveland;
Hill' candidacy docs not cut any figure in
t tiat part of t he situation, in elaborating
this alleged fact Murphy said the opposi
tion to Cleveland vat baaed on a sentiment
tliat nan neconie a n.xeii aim aosolule as
Can't Abide the Harvsma
Said Mr. Mnrnln: "The idea ia in the
dislike of the mugwump; it matters not
whether he be a Republican mugwump,
like some of the editors in New York, or a ;
Democratic mugwump like ex-Secretary
Fairchild or ex-Mayor Grace. The Demo
crats dislike th m all and all t heir follow
ers." The reason for this dislike Murphy
gave as follows: The mugwumps all bolt
id Hill in 1863, and have fought him ever
since; they went into a combination with
the He ublicans iu 1;J to defeat the
regular New York city Democratic ticket,
tircat lames Ware Involved.
If they had succeeded the whole election
machinery of New York city would have
gone into the hands of the Republicans.
Murphy concludes that for these
things and many others which he in
cluded in bis indictment, '"the feel
ing is growing very bitter in New
York state toward Mr. Cleveland, and
we sincerely trust that the Democracy of
other states will not humiliate the De
mocracy of the state of New York by
nominating a resident of that state whom
the organizations there are positive could
not be elected. The rank and file of the
Democracy of New York state believe in
organization because they have become
convinced that the present organization of
the i emocratic pary means Democratic
Fairchild Talks the Other Way.
C'uas. S. r airchild didn't agree a little
bit with what Murphy said. In a conver
sation the keynote of his remarks was
loyalty to the Democracy, and the assertion
that no Cleveland man would do anything
that would Imperil party success. But as
to availability he said that no lair mind
ed man. well informed as to the sentiment
of New York, can doubt that Cleveland is
by many thousand votes the strongest
candidate for that state, which la so earn

Contain a rerj hir ire body of independent i
voters woo are enthusiastic in support of
Cleveland. ".ir. Cleveland is, bowever,
not the favorite of the Democrats of New
York alone, but of the masses of the party
throughout the entire country, and his
friend iu New York who have come here
are moved by a desire that no mistaken '
idea bout New V;rk may influence the
act i iu ,' the delegates of other states." I
1 iE TYPOS AND WHITELAW REID.

'.. tin W:t in the Negotiations,
New Yoke, June IT. Ex-President
O'Donnell, of Typographical Union No. r,
yesterday made a statement as to
the relative position between Hon.
Whitclaw Kcid and the union,
over which there ha been so much
discussion of late. He rehearsed the vari
ous difficulties between the union and
the Tribune and the hard tight made by
both side. With the coming of the polit-
i si campaign in m, O'Donnell said, the
nnion saw an opening with Kcid, as his
relations with James ;. Blaine and the
Republican patty were of an intimate
Tile Cnion Goes Into Politics.
The union sent a committee to Chicago
and the Republican managers of Blaine
attempted to adjust the trouble, but Reid
was stubborn. O'Donnell claimed that
the union vote in the ensuing electron was
large enough to turn the scale. In IBB
an agreement was made with the then
president of t he union, but it was rejected
by the nnion at an onen meeting. The
fitch occurred over the disposition to
made of , he non-union men. The union
wished their discharge, but to this Reid
would not consent. Since then negotia
tions have been on foot three or four
times, but all went off on the same point.
as Only a Coincidence.
Last October, through the efforts of
Thomas 11. I'latt. both parties were
brought nearly to an agreement. Then an
envoy was gent to Paris, Carrying an agree
ment from the union U.I lleid. The nego
tiations drained and the occurrence of
the settlement and the Republican con-
was entirely accidental. the
, politics In the agreement were not per
j sonal to Reid, and the charge that ho
'made a settlement in view of a possible
nomination to the vice presidency cannot
. be sustained.
.pol,c Only for Themselves.
, O'Donnell then spoke of the Minneap
olis committee. The committee, he said,
bad been criticised ou the ground that it,
exceeded its powers, and that it promised
the support of the union to a political
party. The committee, he declared, did
i not guarantee the support of the union,
j The language of the resolution adopted
by the committee had been misquoted by
some newspapers. The co mittee re
quested Reid's nomination, and not the
union. The resolution referred to stated
: distinctly thai "this committee request"
i thai Reid be nominated for the vice praat
the I nion tines tint of Politics.
O'Donnell said that the union, for the
first time in nine years, is out of politics
and i under obligations to no political
party. A dispatch from Philadelphia
gives an interview with William J. Brett
nan, former j resi lent of the Typographi
cal union and a member of the Minneap
olis committee. He said that in ISM the
union sent a committee to the Republi
can convention iu Chicago to notify it
that there was trouble between the union
and tin- Tribune, ami the union thought it
but right that it should Bend a committee
to this year's Republican convention to
inform it that the trouble was at an end.

A statement is printed in The Tribune

with the union as to keeping them up. and
that the weekly pay in his office is as high
or higher than the union scale. The dif
ficulty was finally overcome bv a proposi
tion that Reid put a union man in as fore-

The Kansas People's Party.
Wichita, Kan., June 17. The fusion
element in the People's party succeeded
during yesterday in getting con
trol of the convention. In the first fight
which came up, the nomination for
lieutenant governor, S. M. Scott, Alliance
lecturer, and C. M. Rice, of Coffey county,
the leading candidates, were turned down
to gives place to Percy Daniels, of Craw
ford county, an ex-union soldier. The
object was to make way for the nomina
