THE VICTOR AND VANQUISHED.
What Cleveland and Hill Said When
They Heard the News.
Buzzard's Bat, Mass., June St At I
yesterday morning Cleveland, through
Governor Bnssall, sent from Gray Gables
the following statement: "I should cer
tainly be chargeable with dense insensi
bility if I were not profoundly touched by
the new proof of the confidence anil trust
of the great party to which I belong and
whose n andates claim my loyal obedience.
MB confident that our fellow country
men are rea ly to receive with approval the
principles of true Democracy, and I cannot
rid myself of the belief that to win success
It is only necessary to persistently and
honestly advocate these principles.
ot Troubled 1er the Iliilc r ncea.
"Differences of opinion and Judgment in
Democrat ie conventions an by no means
wholesome indications, but it is hardly
conceivable in view of the importance of
our success to t In- country and to the party
that there should lie any u here among
Dem xirats any lack of harmonious and
active effort to w in in the campaign which
opens before us. 1 have, then fore, no con
cem on the subject. It will certainly be
my constant endeavor to deserve the sup
part of every Democrat.'1
The cx-prcsident is receiving congratu
latory telegrams by the hundred.
Hill Didm'1 Have Any Hopes.
"Washington, June. 34. Several tracks
ago Senator Hill .satisfied himself that
be could not carry off the presidential lions
Ors. The cum ;.! of opposition mam too
Strong for him to resist, and his only Mvpe
lay in dragging Cleveland down with him
After G Oman's refusal to enter the race
Tuesday the s nntorabandoned even this
hope, and from that moment he became
merely an intelligent observer of the shift
bag events of the convention city. Wednca
day night he was awaiting tbe bulletins
when o'Neilof Massachusetts came in and
asked the qnestion: "Well, nr.- we in Itf"
It.-m i mlcil Bin or a Story.
The senator laughed nood naturedly.
"That reminds me of a story," saiil he.
"There was a man down in Arkansas some
years ago who wanted tbe nomination for
governor. He was rather a popular chap
and the other men who were ambitious of
gubernatorial honors came to him and in
sisted that be ought not to become a can
didate. That's all rifiht,' 8aid the man,
1 cau stand it to withdraw, but can the
people of Arkansasjstand it t' Now" said
the senator, joining in the general laugh
ter, "I don't say that this man's position
Was an exact parallel of mine, but it's a
good story all the same."

Ikdiaxapolis, June 21 Ex-Governor
Gray, in speaking of the result at Chicago,
aid: "I w as not a candidate for vice pres

t a meeting of a number of my friends
on the delegation held last Thursday I in
formed them that I did not want them to
put me forwanl for the vice presidency
nor to make any arrangements to bring
