Fassett Eulogizes Clarkson.
As soon as the committee was ready for
business yesterday l-'assett rose and after
some semi-sorrowful remarks over
Blaine's defeat and the declaration that
the Democrats had nominated their best
man and the situation was desperate, paid
an eloquent tribute to Clarkson, and said
that the days and nights had not been
long enough tor him to do what he want
ed to do forth. Republican party. With
him at the head of the national commit
tee there could be no doubt of success,
Fassett declared that every Republican
would do his utmost to win i he light,
though it would be no "holiday excur
sion." The President I'rcferred Another.
Clarkson Umk the Moor as Fassett con
cluded his speech, and said in substance
that he wished to say to the members of
the committee that he fully appreciated
what had been said by Fassett and that
he felt more grateful to him and the
others of the committee for their kind
words than he could express. He had re
ceived the personal, individual tender of
the support for the chairmanship .of the
committee of forty-two trieinliers of the
committee, yet he had just learned that
the candidate for the presidency preferred
another man. He therefore cheerfully de
clined to be considered a candidate. The
committee took recess to consider the
Waited for a Conference Committee.
The committee resumed its session at 3
o'clock and the call of the roll by Secre
tary I)e Young showed that every state
and territory in the union save Nevada
was represented either in the person of the
committeeman or by his proxy. On mo
tion of H. C. Payne, of Wtscossin,a com
:uittee of three was appointed to draw
resolutions expressive of tin1 appreciation
by tv" committee of the services of its re
tiring chairman. Payne said that under
the suggestions of Chairman Clarkson,
made at 'he morning session, several
members o? the committee were then
conferring wk'i the. president and he sup
posed the committee would wait until
their return before proceeding further,

he desired to say that a splendid choice
every way had been made. The motion
was declared carried and Campbell's elec
tion was made unanimously.
DEFENSE OF QUAY AND DUDLEY.
Clarkson Declares Them Men To Be
Loved and Honored.
The other officers were all elected by ac
clamation, aud then after adopting a reso
tion to carry out the national convention
rule regarding the executive committee,
the resolutions on the retirement of Clark
son, highly eulogistic, were presented and
adopted by a rising vote. In response to
calls Clarkson said: "For the good will
and honor conferred by these resolutions
I am deeply grateful. In IS1! we had a
hard working committee and lost; in 1888
we had a harder working committee and
won. And to my knowledge no campaign
was ever conducted more cleanly, more
honestly, than the campaign of 1881. I
know Senator Quay and General Dudley,
and I hope there is no Republican in this
land who will ever cease to render due
honor to these two honorable men .
Would Name His Boy After Them.
"And I want to say to you, gentlemen,
that upon my dying bed, before my family,
I could not name two men more to be
loyed and honored than Senator Quay and
General Dudley. I want to warn you,
gentlemen, against a growing teudency in
the Republican party, under the hypocrisy
of the times, not to defend its party lead
ers. The cases of SenatorQuay and General
Dudley afford vivid examples of this prac
tice. So far as I am concerned, if I have
another boy to name I will be glad to con
fer upon him the name of Quay or I udley.
And this is an evidence of my love and
affection for the men. As to resolutions,
1 shall again thank you from the bottom
of my heart, and in conclusion state that
no man on the continent desires more to
help elect the Republican ticket, or will do
more, according to his ability, than I."
Called ou the President.
Resolutions were also unanimously
adopted expressing the love, respect and
confidence of the committee for its retir
ing secretary, Fassett. Fassett acknow
ledged the honor in a happy little speech.
After adopting a motion offered by Sena
tor Carey, that the executive committee
be authorized to fill all vacancies occur
ring by death or otherwise prior to the
next meeting, the committee adjourned
subject to the call of the chairman. The
members of the committee, immediately
after adjournment went in a body to the
White House and paid tlieir re-pects is

Awake All the Time.
Chicago, June 29 William J. Camp
bell, the new chairman of the Republican

delphia. His family came to Chicago
when he was young. Campbell's home has
always been in the city. He attended the
Northwestern university at Kvanston, and

vania, but owing to ill health did not con
tinue in the latter institution beyond the
junior year. Entering the office of the firm
of Goudy it Chandler he studied law with
that linn. In L879 he formed a law part
nership with Jacob R. Curtis, under the
firm name of Campbell & Curtis, which
firm still exists. ,
Never Held hut Due Office.
Campbell has always taken an active
interest in politics, but has held but one
political position that of state senator.
He was elected in 1st and served eight
years. Jan. 5, 1881, he was elected presi
dent of the state senate and in li83 was
again elected. Campbell's residence is in
the suburb of Riverside, and he is presi
den. of the village tiustees. He is a man

of politicians who are undemonstrative,

Cincinnati, Juue 98. The national ex

the several states since the last national
campaign. That of Chairman Dickie will
make particular reference to the great
growth of Prohibition sentiment during
the past two years throughout the coun

of Wisconsin, will submit an elaborate
statement showing that the entire work

Notables Getting in Slowly.
' The only prominent arrivals of the past
twenty-four hours have been A. A. Stevens,
the head and front of the movement in
Pennsylvania, and who is slated for either
temporary chairman or permanent chair
man, and Rev. W. H, Boole, of New York.
The national committee is in favor of a
short convention, and will so arrange the
programme that barring an undue teudency
on the part of the delegates to talk, a final
adjournment can be taken on Thursday
I Platform Will Bequire "Breadth."
More trouble is anticipated in framing
a platform than in selecting the nomi
nees. Judging from the resolutions
idopted at the various state conventions,
che delegates will have widely divergent
views on the Questions of woman's suf
frage, silver and tariff. Tonight, however,
when most of them have arrived, an effort
will be made to harmonize the conflicting
elements so that the platform may satis
factorily cover all the isms" of the mem
bers of the party outside of the prohibition
st ion proper.

ASBCRT Pakk.N. J. , June 88. M . Leahy,
reputed to be a very bail man from the
Bowery, New York, appeared here Sunday
night and mingled in an enthusiastic af
fray w ith five policemen on the great board
walk In full view of hundreds of the town's
summer visitors. Michael is a rather lean
and tall young man, with an aggressive
nose nnd very handy fists. It seems that
he and a friend, also from the Bowery, got
drunk enough to consider that they should
exercise the rights of proprietorship to the
city. So, when a dozen or so of colorsd
people walked quietly by the pair, they
began operal ions.
Stirred Fp the Cottagers.
Leahy suddenly knocked four or five of
them down. The negroes attempted to
respond in kind, whereupon Leahy
whooped and promptly knocked a quarter
of a dozen of them off the lioard walk
down on to the beach. The negroes drew
razors and started at Leahy with the in
tention of killing him. Leahy screamed
for help as one of the colored men slashed
him over the right ana. The cries of the
combatants and Leahy's scream for help
caused treat excitement and the cot takers
and hotel guests ran to the spot in crowds
from all directions.
Was a Terror to the "Force."
The entire beach police force, consisting
of five men, appealed, and after scatter
ing the angry negroes charged the l-aby.
The latter pitched into the force with
great vigor. He kicked one of them on
the head, another on the shoulder, and
quite inadvertently knocked the third
one down. Amid the howls of the great
throng the struggle went on until the offi
cers had succeeded in placing manacles oa
(.Ives 'Km a Final F'lurry.
All bloody and tattered he staggered to
his feet nnd announced to the crowd: "I
want you people to understand that I am
not resisting an officer." After which he
threw his arms and feet in four distinct
directions and upset the same number of
policemen. They dragged him to the sta
tion house. Yesterday morning the jus
tice of the peace sent Michael to the coun
ty jail to await indictment.
GREAT BLAZE AT SEATTLE.
The Town Again Swept by Fire at a Cost
SEATTLE, Wash., June -J8 Fire last
night threatened to sweep the town as it
did three years ago, but the progress of
the flames were checked after a loss of half
a million dollars had been caused.
The fire started in the heart
of the city and gained head
wav so rapidly that consternation pre
vailed. Schwabacher Bros.' wholesale
grocery was destroyed, aud the Hotel
Northern was badly damaged. Dexter
Horton's new bank building was saved by
hard work. The insurance on Schwa
