CHICAGO, June 18. The Oemix-rntic par

real hurrah will hardly be thoroughly un
JlT way before tomorrow. As t ho matter
Hands now there is h ko1 deal of similar
ity between the situation here anil at
Minneapolis pn i.. us to the nomination.
There it was the field against Harrison.
Here it is the field against Cleveland. At
Minneapolis there was one positive eandi
date against Harrison who had undoubt
ed strength: here there is one against
Cleveland Hill who also has strength
beyond his own state who in other words
is not simply a favorite son.
There are Booaaa All Around.
There are plenty of booms the Boies
boon, the Palmer, tiray, (iorman even
Justice Fuller boom but these latter are
th" booms of favorite s..ns. The really
national candidate is David B. Hill. The
others are all favorite son boOMa. They
may one of them win as a "dark horse,"
but the fight at the start is between Cleve
land and Hill and it isn't a good natured
one. Murphy's declaration that Cleve
land's Mends were not loyal to the Demo

Chairman Brlee aad Saeaeaa Croker Dis

Sachem Richard C'roker and Senator
Calvin S. Brice had a falling out at the
Palmer house yesterday afternoon. They

over an hour when the senator came out

it Was "No Ch Talking."
Croker replied in a whisper, and Brice
answered him m a tone easily heard fifty
feel away: "No, sir: it is no use talking, I
will not consent to such a thing." Then
he broke away from the grasp of the Tam
many man and hurried down-stairs, w hile
Croker turned and walked back to the
room. There was much surmising regard
ing the cause of this row, but nobody
except tie men interested, who are not
prone to give up personal information of
this sort, knew w ha. it was about.
GORMAN HASN'T HIS BOOM ALONG.
Fresh Arrivals of Lenders First r'iarlit of
Senator Gorman got in i yesterday. He
had nothing to say. He said: "I proba
bly know less about it than any man you
could ask. The Gorman boomf No, I
didn't bring it with me. I haven't seen it
or even heard of it. I don't know how
the Maryland delegation will vote or w ho
is its choice for president. I don't know
about the Hill-Cleveland controversy or
about the talk that Gorman, if nominated,
could combine the strength of those two
factions. In fact. sir. I haven't anything
to say at all." There might have been
some other things that Senator Gorman
didn't quite know about, but he didu't
mention them, and he disappeared as soon
as possible. .
Will Fight for Temporary Organisation.
The national committee meets today,
and here will be the first fight. Much
depends on the complexion of the tempor
ary organization of the convention as to
whether tht Cleveland or "anti-snap" dele
gates will s and any show before the com
mittee on credentials. For this reason
considerabh interest is felt in the selection
of a tenipon ry chairman. An indication of
the truth oft he statement that t here are but
two men at t Ids time really in the contest is
the fact thai it is the paAisa&S of these
men who ate preparing to produce facts
and figures Itefore the committee to prove
their Strength. The others are "not in it,"
New Arrivals of Leaders.
Among tin arrivals yesterday besides
Gorman wen Michael Doran and Patrick
Kelly, of St. Paul; Frank K. Sherman,
chairman of the "antiauap" committee
for Syracuse. X. Y.: Frank A. Fuller, of
Jamestown, i nd K. (J. Beckwith, a Cleve

William S. FsrreU, of Buffalo; "Anti

of the national committee; K. B. Boss, na

rl m. F. Harrity, of Philadelphia nil
Cleveland DM n, and they immediately
went on the w ar pat h.
What I ley sa of Tammaay,
Talk among the Cleveland men regard
ing Murphy's charges against the Cleve
land med was to the effect that the Tam
many kick wa- quadrennial and that the
great society was always on the losing
side. It WOUl rn't have Tilden sixteen
years ago, and even voted against him
at the polls, tl ev say, but he was nomin
ated and can ed New York; it opposed
Cleveland in ISst, and he was nominated
and elected, and it accepted him in 1888,
and he was no: limited and beaten. Gen
erally the sac lems came in for rough
handling y ester lay by the ca ptains of the
Cleveland Cam aign.
Has N second Choice,
Michael Doran, chairman of the Minne
sota delegat ion, said they were for Cleve
land and had do second choice. Harrity,
the Philadelphia chief, said his delegation
bad M votes ai: there w as for Cleveland.
Indiana is all "aroke up," Taggart chair
man of the state committee, and Kdit.rr
Morss, of the I tdianapolia Sentinel, are
tanch Cleveland men. The former favors
the unit rule on t tedi legation which would
make the Indiana solid for Cleveland. The
talk is mostly ft r (iray for second place
B0IS-TEI10US IOWA MEN.
They Make .rcat Claim! for Their Can
didate 1 aimer's Position.
If noise would nominate, the Iowa men
Would get the prise for their man. There
are probably more Hawkeyes here than
representatives of any two other states,
and they are "whooping it up" for Horace.
They claim the whole northwest and the
balance of the country for him if he is
nominated. The 1 'aimer Ixiom is an
ideality just now. Palmer himself is for
Cleveland as long as he is before the con
vention, ami doc not want the vote of
Illinois until Cleveland's nomination is
found impractical le.
The Coating nt From Maryland.
Although Senator (iorman didn't know
anything about his state delegation, the
delegates -at-large Aim arrived with him
had not been in the Palmer House long
before it was known that they would vote
solidly for Cleveland until it was shown
that he could not b ! -elected, and then the
delegates would drop into line for Gor
man. The claim was made last night for the
inn men that they bold tl.e balance of
power, and this was conceded by the con
servative men of a 1 the elements, taking
lor their basis a table prepared bv t iie
Cleveland men. It dioiild be remembered
that it takes two-th nls to nominate-in the
Democratic national convention.
The Figaros lis They are GivOO.
The table referrei to gave the es-presi-dent
500 votes, or 90 less than the total

however, the 4b vote- of Illinois are couut-

be accepted as reliab e, as the ex-president

would bring his estimate up to 684. In

REINFORCEMENTS FOR HILL.
Bonrke ( tick ran iet to Town and Says
New York In for he Senator.
The Tammany delegi tion received an
accession last evening in the persons of a
numlier of prominent New York con
gressmen, including Bourke Cockrau,
John K, Fellows and At 10s J. Cuinmings.
Immediately after their arrival Cockrau
had a talk with chief Croker. Cockran is
supposed to have come bearing the latest
instructions from Senator Hill, but after
leaving Croker the Ta nmany congress
man declined to speak of -heir conference.
It is believe'' that it had reference to the
placing of Hill's name b -fore the conven
tion, as that pleasant dut f in the opinion
of many will devolve upon the eloquent
represntative from the Tenth New York
"We are for Senator Hil ," he said " aud
are backed by the Democr.its of the state."
Says He Speaks for Labor.
Thomas J. Dowling, p -esident of the
New York stale trades assembly and re
presenting 250,000 workii gmen of that
state, arriveu here last night. When asked
his position hv said: "As the president of
the trades assembly I am here to favor the
nomination of Dav.d B. Hill.
Without any persoi al prejudice
against Mr. Cleveland, I say un
equivocally that he cannot get the work
tngmen's vote in New York state. My or
gauization is supposed to be non-partisan
and in fact is so, but the nomination of
Mr. Keid on the Hepubiican ticket forbids
cur supporting it. We therefore look for
ward to a candidate of the Democracy
that we can support."
Came ear Having a IHfrU-ulty.
There can,ie near being a melee at the
Great Northern hotel yesterday when the
Buffalo delegation wearing Cleveland
badges came in contact with a pvrly from
Oneida county which was shouting for
Hill. Both nides became excited, and a
war of words ensued. Some very strong
expressions were exchanged, and some of
the disputants became so heated that only
the interference of their friends prevented
an exchange of something stronger than
verbal personalities. At the headquarters
of the anti-nillitea in the Grand Pacific
last night the lalk was very bitter against
Murphy and Sheehan.
MAY DEPEND ON ILLINOIS.
A BlgniSeaat Remark from h airman
llrlee In ill a it a 1 teeides.
Chairman Brice, in conversation yester
day with one of the western delegates,
made certain remarks which are con
strued as revealing the entire anti-Cleveland
programme. "Of course," he is re
ported to have said, "if Illinois doesn't
cast her vote for Palmer the favorite SOU
Eh all the states is killed. Illinois is fir-t
on the roll possessing a favorite son, and
the other states will follow her example.
If she votes lor Cleveland 1 suppose ho
v. ill lie nominated.
Boosters lake Their Position.
All doubts regarding the position of the
Indiana delegation were set at rest yester
day afternoon by the positive Statement of
Senator Voorhees that he would formally
p'ace the name of Governor Isaac P. Gray
in nomination. This decision, w hich was
the outcome of a conference of Imlianans
at their rooms in the afternoon, will doubt
less be approved bv the full delegation,
inasmuch as the complexion of the latter
is sixteen for Gray to fourteen for Cleve
land, Doesn't Agree with Instruction..
Tin- f Herds of the ex -president from
other states, however, found it difficult to
reconcile the Gray boom with the action of
the state convention la id at Indianapolis
on AprilSl This body endorsed the wise
and patroitic administration of Grover
Cleveland, d dared that the coming
campaign should be conducted on the issue
of tarilT reform, declared further that
upon this issue Cleveland was the logical
candidate of the Democratic party and
while expressing confide noe in Governor
Gray laid down the instructions that all
honorable means to secure his nomination
should he used only in the event of t..e
national convention deeming the uoinii.a
tion of Cleveland inexpedient.
Ilie Temporary Chairmanship,
The Bttb-committee of the national com
mittee whose duty it is to select a tempo
rary chairman for the convention, did not
meet yesterday as was planned. It is be
lieved, however, thai Adi li F. Stevenson,
of Bloominglon, 111 .w ill secure the prize.
This belief is strengthened by the fact that
Stevenson's headquarters, which were
opened yesterday morning, were closed
shostly after a conference between that
gentleman and several eastern ami south
