Colorado headquarters yesterday after
noon. Bepreaentative from the follow
ing states and territories, with full power
to act, were in attendance: Colorado, Ne
vada, Montana, Idaho, New Mexico, Aii
rona, and I'tah. Kansas, and Nebraska
were also represented, bat the delegates
from those two states had no authority to

Bight he arranged. James li. Orman, of
Pueblo, who represents the radical free
silver element, said that unconditional de
mands would be made for a free silver
plank in the platform.
Two Other states Polls.
The Nebraska delegation at its meeting
was polled. Twelve delegates Voted for
Cleveland, three for Gorman, and one for

The low a delegates held a brief caucus
yesterday morning, at w hich several of the
visiting committees reported that they had
received considerable encouragement. No
resolutions were adopted. ''We an- claim

candidate," said DelegateiBt Large Martin,
"but we have pledges that will bring his

One of the arguments being used among
the silver men in Gorman's interest Sm i -Hay
night was one which even Tom l'at
terson. of Cclorado, would not accept. It
was the Statement that .Senator Teller had
said to a southern senator that if Gorman
was nominated he would advise the He
publican voters of the silver states to
support the Democratic ticket. Patterson
said frankly that be did not believe the
story, and proved to be justified in his

At the "ronnd-np" thdVe were present
the (nil committee of f. rtj who have been
in charge of i In-campaign, and the vote
for the ex-president was gone over for the
last time, said Whitney Without the
vote of Maryland the table footed up over
60(1, enough to nominate Cleveland on the
first ballot. The Mate men! was made that
Maryland would cast its vote for Cleve
land, Gorman having said that this would
be done. Hut in the absence of official as
surance on this score the votes were not
included in the table. Of course there
were none counted from Iowa, but the
opinion was expressed that liefore the bal
lot was taken Governor Roies would re
leave his delegates from the pledge to sup
port him, and that the Hawkcye votes
would go to swell the total for Cleveland.
Calls the Situation a Kout.
One of the gentlemen present at the
hotel snid: "It has turned into a rout.
There won't be enough left of the other
fellows to make it interesting." In view
of the fact that the Cleveland vote will so
largely predominate in the convention it
was decided not to contest the election of
W. C. Owens, of Kentucky, as temporary
chairman, lint it was further decided to
make W. I Wilson, the famous West Vir
ginia tariff reform congressman, perma
nent chairman. With this understanding
at 11:80 the conference adjourned.
Looks Like ii Katitlralion Meeting.
The Ohio delegation held a caucus last
night and a long one. Henry L. Davis,
who bad been w ith the delegation trying
to work up a combination against Cleve
land, came out during the caucus and was
immediately tackled for news. He was
asked: "How does the delegation stand:'"
"About the same BS usual," he replied.

Chicago, June 21. The strength of the
Cleveland feeling was so great last night
that a great many people expressed the
opinion that Hill's
name would not go
before the conven
tion. Murphy said
positively that it
would. Later in the
Croker and He Witt
(who has been se
lected to present the (
name of Senator
Hill) held a meet
ing and decided
definitely that Hill
would stay in the
race and that DeWitt would make the
nominating speech. Senator Daniel, of
Latest U. S. Gov't Report.
Virginia, was decided upon to second the
nomination. The New York delegation
met at 10 o' lock last night in secret ses
sion to receive the report of the chairman
of the com nitteea selected to vi9it the
delegations from other states. Colonel
Fellows reported no progress with Illi
nois, and the majority of the other chair
men reported practically the same results.
Fellows had visited the southern men,
but he had found that the Unit rule pre
cluded their MHing for Hill. At the close
of the meeting, after retOlving to stand by
Hill, the lead rs retired.
Murphy Mill Not Admit Defeat.
With a ten.' tity that was remarkable the
the Hill men remained faithful to their
leader, and in the face of admissions by
delegates and Tammany men w ho were
not delegates that they were beaten, went
right ahead w ith theii missionary work.
Kepresentativ ! Fellows missed his evening
meal in order to have some Confidential
conferences la -t night. When Chairman
Murphy was confronted w ith Whitney's
statement last night that he would forfeit
anything that could lie named if Cleve
land was not i ominated on the first ballot
he said: ' Whitney is a false and bad
prophet. We ire not issuing statements,
but we are ii ing good work that will
show for itself "
A Couple of Men Who "Own I'p."
Rut Murphy s courage did not extend to
his followers. Senator Ahearn, of New
lork, a member of Tammany, said:
'What the use talking. We have fought
hard and we are
s, oeaieu and we
might as well ad
mit it." The Up
state New Yorkers
were almost all of
the opinion that
they were out of
the race, and there
were many sugges

Judge Herrick, of New York, addressed
the Mississippi delegation in behalf of
Cleveland yesterday. One of the delega
tion asked the speaker whether it was true
that Cleveland invited Fred Douglass and
his family to his wedding reception. "I
don't know," replied Judge Herrick. Af
ter a pause, during which the Mississip
plan insisted upon a reply, the Judge
added: ,-I am not here to lie to you, but I
say frankly that I think he did. Mr.
Douglass was a federal officeholder and it
was simply a matter of courtesy to do so
"Rut Mr. Douglas had resigned at that
time," insisted the delegate.
'I don't know anything about that," re
sponded Judge Herrick. At this point the
caucus adjourned until evening.

Scudder, held for the murder of his
mother-in-law, Mrs. Mary Dunton, died at
the county jail at 12:32 oclock this morn
ing from the effects of morphine, supposed
to have been self-administered. The offi
cers at the jail adhere to the theory that
he committed suicide, as every circum
stance connected with his death, they say,
points to such a conclusion.
Suspected His Intention.
The Officers at the jail have been suspi
cious for some time that Dr. Scudder was
contemplating suicide, and extra precau
tions were taken against such a fatality.
His cell was thoroughly searched a few
days ami and the turnkeys were satified
that it would be impossible for him to
take his own life with the means at his
disposal. He must have had some secret
place of concealment, how ever.
