many to Pull Off Its Coat.
CnicAGO, June 25. A report was pub
lished yesterday to the effect that a com
mittee of representatives of the Knights of
Labor, the Fanners' Alliance of this state
and Texas and several others had an in
terview Thursday night with Judge
Gresham at his residence, at which the
jurist was urged to allow his name to be
nsedasthe presidential candidate of the
third party at thu Omaha convention, but
that in reply he intimated that he doubted
it being his duty to make the sacrifice de
manded by the candidacy, and said that
politics had no charms for him except in
his position as a private citizen. At Judge
G res ham's residence, however, it was said
yesterday morning that he left for Indiana
Thursday afternoon and none of the mem
bers of his household had any knowledge
that such a conference had taken place.
What Lester Hnhtiurd Says.
A telegram from St. Louts reports H. E.
Tauheneck as stating that he has a letter
from Lester Hubbard, iditor of The Van
guard, in which the following occurs: "A
deleuation of our party had a conference
with Judge Gresham last Wednesday
evening, and all agreed that he would ac
cept the nomination. While in Chicago
Monday and Tuesday 1 met a number of
the leaders anil they feel confident that
Judge Gresham would accept the nomina
tion. General Warner, of Ohio, president
of the Bimetallic league, had a long con
ference with Mr. Gresham Tuesday morn
ing and feels confident he would accept."
What Is Claimed for the Scheme.
Tauheneck, so the telegram says, contin
ued: '-It now remains for Judge Gresham
to make some positive announcement.
With him as our leader Harrison or Clove
land cannot carry a state west of the Mis
"His nomination, then, would throw the
presidential aleetion into the house?"
"Most assuredly; but it would go there
"Could he carry any state east of the
"Henry Watterson said at Chicago on
Momlay last that Gresham would wrest
the first victory from the Democracy of
Kentucky, and those are my sentiments."
It Rests with the Judge.
Adispatch from Indianapolis says: Judge
Walter Q. Gresham is apt to run for presi
dent yet. It looks much as if he would be
named as the standard-bearer of the Peo
ple's patty at its coming convention in
Omaha. Whether he shall make the race
or not apparently rests entirely with him,
the leaders of the third party being only
too w illing to place him on the ticket. The
judge at present is at French Lick Springs,
in the eastern part of the state, and a con
ference betweoi him and General Warner,
of Ohio, representing the Bimetallic
league, has been held, its object being to
win the judge over to allowing the use of
t oy, lint Almost Persuaded.
The jurist was coy. While not refusing
or consenting, he left the impression on
General Warner that he would not put
aside any honors that the People's party
should confer on him. In reply to the en
treaties of General Warner Judge Gre-sham
pleaded that he was too poor; that he
could not afford to sacrifice either the
time or the money nece sary to make the
race, and that it was essential that he be
free to increase his income whenever he
could do so legitimately.
One Obstacle in the Way.
Judge Gresham, however, said that,
with the exception of the sub-treasury
scheme, which to him was visionary and
impracticable, there was no difference be
tween the People's party leaders and him
self unless it was that many entertained a
stronger hope than he did that we are to
escape a bloody revolution before the plu
tocracy of wealth surrenders itself.
TAMMANY WILL BE LOYAL.
A Complaint That Chicago Did Not Treat
SYRACUSE, N V. June 25 Ex. Mayor
William B. Kirk, of this city, treasurer of
the regular Democratic state committee,
has returned home from Chicago. He
said that the Chicago people did all they
could to make it unpleasant for the regu
lar Democratic state delegation from New
York, and that wherever the Tammany
hall representatives went they were greeted
"lu face of such treatment will Tammany
loyally fupport the ticket?" was asked.
Will Go to Work and Has tie.
They certainly writ. Tammany Hall
has a leader in Mr. Croker who is a fa'ttb
ful and staunch Democrat, and he and his
delegation wilt give us a large majority in
New York city. Ia our letter which was
presented to toe convention we did not say
Cleveland could not carry the state, but
that his nomination would imperil Demo
cratic success. That latter was oar honest
convk-tiooj best now that Cleveland is
nominated we wKt take off our coats and
the regular organisation will fight the
baUle for saprernaoy over the Repubil-

STEVENSON OPENS HEADQUARTEB6.
Be Receives a WasnUer of Friends and
Owe A oo, June 85. General Stevenson,
Democratic candidate for vice president,
yesterday opened headqaartess in parlor
Q at the Punier. During the day the Ken-
headed by Chairman Tairgnrt, of the state
committee, assured General Stevenson
that the Democrats of the state of Indiana
would be as loyal to the ticket as they
would have been had Governor Gray been
Congratulatory DUpat dies.
General Stevenson was the recipient of
scoies of congratulatory dispatches from
lriends yesterday, the bulk of them com
ing from friends in Blooniington, his
home. He received many congratulations
from friends outside the state. "For all
these kindly sreetings I wish to express
my thanks," said the general, "and I ex
press them through the press because it
would be impossible from a physical
standpoint to acknowledge every one per
sonallv." THE TICKETS ARE BOTH CLEAN,
And the Issues More Sharply Defined
Than Ever, Says Clarkson.
NEW York, June 25 Hon. J. S. Clark
son is in the city. Referring tothe national
tickets, he said: "Both the Republican and
Democratic conventions have nominated
good clean tickets, and both, I believe,
fairly represent the strength of the respec
tive parties. There will be a vigorous can
vass made, and it will doubtless be re
markably free from scandal or personal
antagonisms. The lines are, however,
more strictly drawn than ever. The light
will be one of issues.
Stevenson Stronger Than Gray.
"As to the candidates for vice president
I think Stevenson, if anything, a stronger
man than Gray." In reference to the com
ing election next week of a chairman of
the national committee to succeed him
self, Clarkson said that he was not a can-1
didate for re-election. The position, he
sa id, was a thankless one at best. When !

Voorhees Knew of No Ileal.
TEBBI Havte, June 25. Senator Voor
hess was asked yesterday if he knew any
thing about an agreement with the repre
sentatives of Cleveland by which the vote
of the Indiana delegation was made solid
for Cleveland with tle understanding that
the Cleveland influence was to be exerted
to secure the nomination of ev-Governor
Gray for the second place. He said he did
not. If there was such an agreement he
had no hand in it. He was abseut from
Chicago during the campaign for the vice
presidency and consequently took no part
therein. The senator has recovered some

him to come home, and left for Washing

Nevada Silver Men in Convention.
Keno, Nev., June 25. The state silver
convention is in session here. It seems to
be the sentiment of the delegates from the
eastern counties to simply nominate presi
dential electors, consisting of two Repub
licans and one Democrat, and not to inter
fere with state or county politics. They
will likely select representatives to the
Omaha and Montana conventions, which
meet in July. Many of tin' delegates from
the western part of the state are favoring
nominations from presidential electors
down to town constable.

A Joke About Chicago Lot Off at
New YoBK, June 25. Thomas A. Edison
has an invincible repugnanoe to banquets,
but last night yielded very gracefully in
order to do honor to one of his oldest and
closest associates, Samuel Insull, formerly
his private secretary, who has just been
elected president of the Chicago Edison
company. The farewell dinner to Mr.
Insull was given at Delmonico's, and was
attended by many well-known leaders in
electrical finance, invention, jurisprudence,
Will Make Ills Advent Noteworthy.
A magnificent solid silver punch bowl
was presented to Mr. Insull engraved with
the names of forty of the diners and
donors. It is said to be the finest piece of
its kind ever turned out in this city, and
the joke of the evening was that, like Mr.
Insull aud other good things from New
York, it had ro o K Chicago. Mr. Insull
is to take up his permanent residence in
Chicago on Jiuie '), aud his advent to the
presidency of lehe local onmpany will be
marked by the expenditure of several mil
