cans. C incinnati, O., June 29. General John
Bid well, of California, who was a repre
sentative from that state away back in the
60s, will be the standard bearer of the na
tional Prohibition party in the coming
campaign. The boom for William Jen
nings Deinorest, of Xew York, whose cau
sidaey has been actively promoted
throughout the country for months, ap
pears to have expended and the Califor
nian's nomination is claimed by his
friends on the first ballot, if not by accla
mation. For the second place Joshua
Levering, a wealthy Baltimore coffee
merchant, and of local note as a philan
thropist, is in the lead, with Henry Clay
Bascoru, of New York, and A. A. Stevens
of Pennsylvania, following close behind.
Keeping Up with the l'locexiion.
Yesterday was a warm day among the
Prohibitionists, and the whiie-haired and
spectacled delegates bemoaned the fact
that the degenerating influences of
modern political methods hare crept in
among their followers, and that the good
old times when the delegates sang temper
ance hymns to camp-meeting tunes and j
discussed the availability of candidate
without heat or passion or personal vitu
peration have gone, perhaps to return no
more. The contest of the opposing fac
tions were inaugurated almost immedi- I
ately upon the arrival of the Xew York
delegation yesterday morning. It had
been conlidently expected by the scatter- j
ing Demorest following from other states '
that this delegation would be solid for the i
New Yorker, but much to their dismay j
and chagrin it was very speedily developed :
that he had but thirty out of the 110, !
and that the majority were either for Bid- !
well or on the fence.
It Was Small, but Very Spry.
If the minority was small, however, it .
was active, and it brought in its train a
goodly sized contingent of young political
workers, who lost no time in going into
the thick of the fray. They decorated ;
themselves with badges, scattered lit ho- j
graphs of their candidate right and left,
and then proceeded to visit the various
headquarters uot so much to sound his ;
praises, as to decry the oposition. Not j
even at Minneapolis in the heat of the j
ante-convention campaign was as much
vituperation indulged in as was current.
All kinds of charges, affecting not only
his general availability but his moral
character, were brought agairtst the Cali- '
fornian, and some of them of a character
unlikely to find their way into type were
put upon paper and passed around.
Bidwell Men on Their Dignity.
The Bidwell supporters, however, refused
to return the fight with the same missiles.
They contented t hemselves with the dec-
1 ft ration that the party did not want a
man who sought the office, that the office I
snouia seek me man and that Demorest,
1 n their opinion was incapacitated in many
ways from being considered as an availa
ble nominee. Having said so much they
proceeded to devote themselves with en
ergy and enthusiasm to missionary work
among the delegations, and as fast as
these arrived New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
Texas, Illinois, Maryland and North Caro
lina, iollowing each in quick succession
they were met by committees who ex
plained the situation and sounded the
praises of the California candidate.
Kid Lively and Bid Well.
So successful were they in these tactics
that last night a majority of the delegates
and visitors were sporting Bidwell badges,
and even the most enthusiastic friends of
the New York candidate admitted that
unless there is a change in the situation
his name must not be presented to the
convention. Ihe Illinois caucus yesterday
afternoon decided not to present a candi
date, and at the Pennsylvania caucus in
the evening a straw vote showed that
nearly everv delegate would go to Bidwell
on the first ballot
NATIONAL COMMITTEE MEETING.
St. Jolm for Temporary Chairman Sam
Sniall Kicks l p a Fuss.
The national committee yesterday aft
ernoon decided upon ex Governor John P.
St. John as temporary chairman. A warm
debate was precipitated by Rev. Sam
Small, who called atteution to the fact
that a resolution adopted at his instance
four years ago, and which prohibited the
national committee from using its funds
for the employment of campaign speak
ers in the field, had not beeu lived up to.
i nairmau uicKie replied that the resolu
tion in question endowed the committee
with discretionary powers. This Small
denied, but after a sotnew hat heated collo
quy the action of the committee was sus
tained. Miss Willard Booming- Fusion.
The movement for a fusion with the
People's party which assembles at Omaha
on Saturday received something of an im
petus from a meeting held at
the Palace yesterday afternoon and
of which Miss Prances Willard was the
promoter. The opposition turned out in
force but were outnumbered, and resolu.
tions favoring fusion were adopted. The
conference was attended by over 300
people. The minority made a consider
able uproar, shouting "No Gresham," "No
Fusion," "No change in name." Speeches
urging fusion were made by Evans of New
York and several Illinois delegates. A
telegram was received from Senator Peff er
urging the ccuference to appoint a few
discreet persons to attend the Omaha con
vention for the purpose of conferring with
some of the leaders regarding fusion.
Appointed a Committee.
A resolution was adopted declaring that
a friendly feeling exists between the Pro
hibition and People's party upon economic
questions of the day, and recommending
! to today's convention that the national
( committee be authorized to confer with
the People s party with a view to a uniou
I provided that thestippression and prohibi
Probably" . lion of the liquor traffic be not left out of
tue platiorm. A committee was appointed
j to present the matter to the Prohibition
i and Omaha conventions. The committee
comprises W H. Boles, oi Illinois; G. R.
Maicue, of Michigan; Miss Frances K.
I Willard; Colonel Felton, of Illinois; Mrs.
H. Emery, of Michigan: Judge East, of
I Tennessee, and Ira Maine, of Indiana.
Illinois Has a Candidate.
I Thelltiuois delegation at another caucus
last night reconsidered its action of the
! afternoon and decided to place in uoniina
; tion for the presidency ex-Jmig David
j McCullough, of Peoria, aud to stick to
I him so long as there was a chance for his
nomination The New York delegation
decided to present no candidate from that
state as a body. It leaves any delegate at
liberty lo make any nomination he might
i think proper. At the Demorest orator
ical contest last night at Music hall Miss
Minnie Warren, of Michigan, won the dia
inane Chosen by Them for Governor.
Ticket and Platform.
FoilT Wavne. Ind., June 29 The state
Republican convention met in this city I
yesterday to select nominees for the state
offices. There has been a strong fight
against Governor Chase as head of the 1
ticket, but it wasn't hard for a close ob- '
server to see that the governor would "get
there" as soon as balloting was begun,
i'he convention was called to order by
Chairman Gowdy, of the state central
committee, at 10:15 a. m. aud C. W. Fair
hanks was permanent chairman. During
his speech all allusions to Hariisou or the
Republican national platform were heart
The Pith of the Platform.
A recess was taken to 1 p. m., and when
the convention reassembled the commit
mittees made their reports, the most im
portant being that on platform. The peth j
oi this document, which was adopted
unanimously, is as follows: The national
platform is heartily approved, and the
people of the country are congratulated
upon the reuomination of Benjamin Har
rison, who is eulogized in the highest
terms for his administration. The Democ
, racy is declared incapable of either state
: or national administration, aud generally
' hauled over the coals for its management of
I state affairs, the tax law coming In for a
j large share of disapproval, as being un
qual, unjust and expensive. The late
j state gerrymander is denounced; the de
mand in the national Democratic plat
: form for the repeal of the 10 per cent, tax
on state bank issues is declared a remov
: al of the barrier against a "wildcat" cur
j rency system; the labor plank calls for
safety appliances on railways, opposes cor
i poration insurance companies maintained
; by coercing employes, favors mak
j ing corporations liable for loss
; of life or limb regardless of
; who is responsible, advocates reform in
1 convict labor management in the Interests
of free labor, and pledges the party to legis
lation in the interests of workiuginen. The
fullest and most complete care of soldiers,
, their widows and orphans is endorsed; the
death of Alvin P. Hovey is lameuted aud
his record eulogized, sympathy in his re
cent affliction is tendered Hon. Jas. G.
j Blaine, and the eagle is adopted as the
emblem of the party.
The Tirket Nominated,
j The next thing in order was the selection
! of a ticket and the men named to the con
j vent ion for governor were (iovemor Chase,
j Judge Hadley, of Hendricks county, mat-
ing the speech, and St ate Senator Theodore
i Sbockney, of Union City, who was spoken
for by Senator R. J. Loveland, of Miami.
The first ballot settled it. Orange
county's vote made Chase's total
716, and Loveland moved to make
it unanimous, which was done.
Sbockney was selected for lieutenant gov
ernor, against C. F. Travis, of Crawfords
ville, by a vote of S47 to 556. The ticket
was completed as follows: Secretary of
state, Aaron Jones, of St. Joseph county;
auditor, J. M. Coons, of Marion; treasurer,
F. J. Scholtz. of Yanderburg; attorney
general. Judge J. D. Ferrel. of La Grange;
reporter supreme court, George P.

The convention was largely attended and
full of enthusiasm.
Meets to Make a New Apportionment
(lovernor Perk's Sensation.
Madison, Wis., June VW. The legisla
ture met in special session here yesterday
to make an apportionment of the state into
senate aud assembly districts, the last ap
portionment having beeu declared uncon
stitutional by the supreme court. All
the officers of the last session were re
elected in both houses. A sensation was
created in the seuato by a message
from Governor Peck asking that the eight
een appointments made by him since the
legislature adjourned be confirmed. If
this be done these appointees would re
main in office until their terms expire,
even though the Republicans should carry
the state next Call. The Republicans will
endeavor to prevent confirmation, claim
ing that such action at a special session
would be illegal.
