" Lining Up " Delegates to the
A Break for Maittam in the Ranks of
the Sacramento Contingent
Solid Phalanx From the South — Activity
at the Headquarters of the
Ppeclsl Dispatches to The Mokntng Call.
Sacramento, Aug. 11.— The only topic
of conversation amons the delegates to
day has been the the fyht for tlie nomina
tion for Governor, and so far as can be
judged at present the matter Is crystallizing
rapidly. Tlie various delegations are ar
riving, and as fast as they come in are be
ing " lined up" by the supporters of the
different candidates. The Markuam lieu
tenants, prominent among whom are Gen
eral Sheeban. Saniuel Thornton, C. F. Bus
sett, Major l>an Barns, General Johnson,
Major Bonebrake, Henry T. Gage anil
Judge Carpenter, are hard at work nud
ciaim thai their titilit is in better shape tliau
at any time since the campaigu opened.
JIAIIIiIiAS] (iAI.NI.M. VOTES.
As indicated in those dispatches yester
day Markham is gamine votes, and the re
ported bre;ik in the Sacramento delegation
Is flow an assured fact. It is probable that
at the least calculation seven of the twenty
five delegates are in line for Markham.
The adherents of the latter claim that they
hope to still further divide the delegation.
Editor ltoruck is doing all he can for the
Morrow interest, but says that he will not
sit In the convention. A proxy has been
offered him, but he claims that he cannot
accept in view of the fact that the conven
tion may possibly nominate a man whom
he could uot support. Of coursa lie refers
to llarkliam. but his mierances in the mat
ter carry but little weight, as the animus of
the attacks w Inch he Iftis made are so potent
to all that no one pays the slightest heed to
his dyspeptic utterances. On the contrary,
his opposition has had the tendency to
make friends for Markliam among the men
who are familiar with Mr. Boruck and his
BADLY AT BEA.
The plan which tlie Federal officials had
mapped out for the organization of a "bread
and butter brigade" seems to have miscar
ried. They have decided that it would be
impolitic to nuike a move of that kind, and
the Markham men chiiui that their decision
is due soiely to the expose of their plans as
printed in yesterday morninu's Call.
That they intended to come to Sacramento
with their deputies, however, is an un
doubted fact, aud this thrown into the
scale of course would have been a potent
factor in determining the is«ue. As it is
they are badly at sea and are clutching at
everytaing iv sight.
— Hosiow'a scppoßntßS.
There was at an early hour this morning
a well-defined and determined effort to
throw the Morrow strength to Chipman in
the event of a break, but like all previous
efforts of a similar nature it ended in fail
ure, as it was found that the goods could
not be delivered. The weakuesa of the
Morrow fight, in fact, is that the greater
part of his strength is of such a nature
that it cannot be handled. The majority of
those supporting him will not obey the dic
tates of his managers, and v lieu they see
that his fight is hopeless many of them will
go to Markham. There is a feeling among
them that a "dark horse" is out of the
question, aud they will combat any effort to
spring one on the convention.
Phil Crimmins is keeping himself in se
clusion.* but Ben Chambers and Martin
Kelly, who are with him, are at work
among the delegates. This trio of schemers
find that they are very small potatoes, and
their boasted influence, is not developing as
promised. The frantic screeculnga of their
henchmen have been wasted on the empty
air, and it is safe to say that before the
fight is over the}" will be making a scramble
to get in on the winning side, no matter
who may come out on top. They, at least,
will cut but a very small figure In making
the nomination, and the bare idea of losing
the chance of being in at the division of the
■ spoils is their strongest dread. In their
case it looks as if the good old injunction
that those who live by the sword shall per
ish by the sword seems to be in a fair way
to be exemplified in a political way, and
unless all signs fail they will probably
drift back into obscurity.
Their grief at being outdone by Louder
back and Dunn is great, and while they
keep up a bold f*unt they know well that
Louderbsick, who is here also, will have
more absolute strength in the convention
than they. No doubt, however, Kelly and
Crimmius will make a show of claiming for
themselves all who vote for Morrow Irom
the San Francisco delegation, but the claim
will be so abstud that no one will pay any
attention to it.
A MISTAKE IN" FIGURES.
By a mistake of the telegraph company
these dispatches were ninde to say last
- night that Colonel Markham had sixty fol
lowers who wnuld go down with him to de
feat. This should nave read 100, as the lat
ter are the correct figures and form the van
guard of his strength in the convention.
They will stand by him, it is claimed, as
tenaciously as did the old guard of 306 who
went down with General Grant at Chicago
in 1880. No amount of ballots it is said,
will divide them, and they will stand out if
necessary to the bitter end.
WAXY liEr-KESEXTATIVE MEN.
There was never such a convention
before in California, not only from
point of numbers, but from the person
nel of the majority of the delegates
sent from the different counties of the
State. A finer looking set of men would be
- heard to find, and as delegation after delega
tion arrives it is to be seen they are tho
pick of representative men, young and old,
iron) every section of the State. Especially
is this true of the delegates from the south
ern portion of the State, who include In
their number the best element of the He
; ':.-"l : ~~i~? A SOLID PHALANX.
Markhatu's friends in banks ami stores
nnd on farms have left their business for
once and have come to Sacramento to attest
their high regard for the .Los Angeles can
didate. They present a solid phalanx, which
they claim cannot be broken, and are a
active lot of hustlers to a man. One can
not turn around without being confronted
'by Markham men, and they are lining up
the -delegations as fast as they come in.
Tbeir headquarters are in a constant
ferment, and it is becoming evident that
- they are. a shrewd lot of political uianipula
.• tors. They have not lost a trick and are
making the fur fly on every side. They are
breaking the northern delegations which
- were accredited to Morrow all to pieces,
and in addition to this have not lost a vote
fnm the south. The delegates from the
latter section are unflinching and no im
pression can be made on them,
At .Morrow's headquarters E. P. Dan
forth, Judge Schell and Edward Curtis are
in charge of the San Francisco man's tight,
' and claim that their strength has not been
touched. Curtis came up from San Fran
cisco this morning and immediately pro
ceeded to Morrow's headquarters. He
claims not to be making an active fight, but
an article in the Bee to-night, giving a list
of reasons why Morrow should be nomi
nated, is said to have emanated from him.
His pernicious activity in behalf of Mr.
Morrow is not doing that gentleman any
" good, as a great many Kepublicans are in
dignant over such interference on the part
of a Democrat.
f; In the grand scramble which is being
made to head the ticket the Lieutenant-
Governorship has been lost sight of com
pletely, and no one can be fcuud who can
form the 'lightest Idea us to the situation
In that direction. No doubt ■ exists ttat
The Morning Call.
Coombs of >"ni>a could have the nomination
if he desires it, but lie still maintains that
he is not in the light, but wants the first
place. Jordan of Alameda is here and is
making an active canvass, but it is not be
lieved that be can win under any circum
stances. His county is not for him, and
that seems to determine the result abso
lutely, £0 far as he is concerned. No other
candidate has yet been discussed, and it
looks as if the office would go begging.
The fight for the nomination for Chief
Justice of the Supreme Court is be
ginning to attract a great deal of attention
to-night ami the indications are that Ralph
C. Harrison of San Francisco will give
Beatty the fight of his life. Beatty's friends
were flattering themselves that their man
would have a walkover, but Harrison is de
veloping such remarkable strength that the
former's friends are losing confidence and
working lite beavers. Janus Hermann of
the San Francisco bar. who is making Har
rison's fieht, has his headquarters at the
Golden Eagle and says his man looks like a
sure winner. There are a great many dele
gates from various parts of the State who
seem to think that way.
S. L. Hauscom of Stanislaus, and E. P.
Colgan of Sonoma are here, and are boyi
working for the nomination for Stale Con
troller. Hanseom, it is said, is being
coached for the place by Morrow's friends,
while Colgan has not allied himself with
either faction lv the Gubernatorial fight, so
far as is known. Both are considered
strong but ilia advantage, if any, seems to
be with Colgao, who is regarded with favor
by many of Markham's friends.
SUPEKINTEXDEXT OF SCHOOLS.
J. W. Anderson of San Francisco is mak
ing a gallant fight against Hoi tt for Super
intendent of Public Instruction, and be
will probably be the nominee. They are
the only candidates in the field, and Hoitt
seems to be decidedly weak, so far as can
SECRETARY OF STATE.
Waite of A lami'da is about the only candi
date mentioned for Secretary of State, and
if there is no change in sentiment it looks
as if he would have an easy light for the
place. lie has the sympathy of hundreds
of Republicans because of his name having
bern withdrawn after being sent to the
Senate by President Harrison, as a candi
date lor Appraiser.
AN UNEXPECTED FACTOR.
An Influence That Is Hard at Work Among
tho Dole fates. "
Sacramento. Aug. 11.— At a late hour it
was slated on good authority that some one
connected with the railroad company had
issued their orders and the henchmen have
bent the pregnant hinges of their knees to
the power that struts. The edict went
forth late to-night, and the result, was that
wavering delegates have been whipped into
line. Criuiiuius, aided by his proselyte,
Martin Kelly, is carrying out the
order and using their influence to
drive San Francisco delegates into the
Morrow camp. The reason for this unex
pected action cannot be. ascertained. The
effect has been to add to Morrow's strength.
Just how juuoh it has benefited him it is
hard to say," but there is no questioning the
fact that it has aided him materially.
It is claimed, however, that Mark
ham's strength has not been affected
in the least, as among trie votes
claimed for him were never counted those
controlled by the railroad. Markhaui's
men are keeping a stilt upper lip and are
still smilingly confident. They claim 302
votes on tue first ballot with fifty-seven as
a second choice for Markham. This, of
course, would nominate him. The Morrow
men claim that this is exaggerated and say
that Markhaiu has but 230 votes. It is very
hard to make any calculation as to
the correctness of any figures, as the tight
is very badly mixed, but it is certain that
Markham has lost no absolute strength
since the railrond order was issued. His
friends claim that they will nominate him
in spite of opposition. The Morrow men
are equally confident, but are making no
claims as to the number of votes expected
on the first ballot. It Is difficult to
make any clear prediction, as the man
who sets himself up as a prophet now is
likely to lost* bin reputation. Two confer
ences if the managers of the various candi
dates and leaders of delegations were held
this afternoon and to-night to agree, if pos
sible, on organization, and Senator Camp
bell was agreed upon for Temporary Chair
man. A committee was appointed to ire
pare a platform.

Regarding African Territory.
Loxnox, Aug. 11.— In the House of Lords

Compauy could claim the territories behiud
its present sphere of operations. It was
obviously desirable to draw a line separat
ing the Euglish and French spheres of ac
tivity. The live agreed upon gave the large
part of the western shore of Lake, Tchad to
ihe Nilter Company, including the Empire
ol i>okoti. The couutry northwest of Lake
Tchad would be considered under French

Washington, Aug. 11."— Morrow
tried to have a conference of the Secretary
of the Treasury, Postmaster-General and
Attorney-General to-day on the San Fran
cisco I'ostoflice site, but did not succeed in
getting them together. It Is learned that
Mr. Clarkson's first choice is the Howard
street property, and It will probably be se
cured by condemnation. This information
conies from a most reliable source and cor
roborates a dispatch published a week ago
exclusively by the California Associated
Press. It is learned that although Mr. Clark
son leans toward the Howard-street lot,
his report will speak very favorably of
other locations, but as the Commissioner
who was sent to San Francisco to examine
the different pieces of property reported
Howard street as his first choice, and Mr.
Clarkson is favorably impressed with it, it
is altogether likely that it will be chosen,
although Postmaster-General Wanamaker
is not favorably impressed with it. lie in
sists that there ought to be "lots of room,"
and that the Government should purchase
the Mission-street property "no matter
what it costs."
The Secretary ot the Interior has ap
proved the cession of another "list" of land
to the State of Nevada by the Government.
It comprises 110,000 acres.
Senator Allison the other day in speak
ing to the California Associated Press
correspondent said that the Conference
Committee oil the Sundry Civil Bill would
probably report In favor of the Senate
amendment repealing the law reserving
irrigable lands from settlement. But when
the conference report was made a few days
after it was found that this was one of the
(mints upon which the Conference Commit

of salmon this year is of a most extraordi
nary character, being fully equal to that ot
last year. Twenty thousand salmon were
taken by the canneries Saturday. This
year's run has upset all theories pieviously
held in regard lo salmon. Heretofore one
good season has invariably been followed
by two poor ones. Last season was the
best the salmon canneries ev?r had, and if
tlie total pack this year is as large the old
rule will not apply. 'I ho only reason that
is assigned for the increa.sed run this year
is thai the effects of the good work done

The Tariff Bill Again Under Consideration.
Washington, Auk. 11.— the Senate to
day, after routine business had been dis
posed of, the Tariff Bill was taken up, the
pending question being Plumb's amend
ment to reduce the additional duty on iron
or steel hoops cut to lengths for baling pur
puses from 2-10 to 1-10 of a cent per pound.
The amendment was rejected, three Be
publicnns, iugalls. . Paddock and Plumb,
voting in the affirmative.
McPherson moved to amend the para
graph by making the duty ou iron or steel
hoops 50 per cent ml valorem instead of 1
cent, 1 1-10 cents and 1 3-10 cent* per pound.
Sherman spoke of the little progress that
was being made with the bill. Nearly three
weeks, he said, had been spent upon it, anil
not one-filth of it had been disposed of.
Unless the Senators on the other side
would be satisfied with one vote upon the
question and would then go right along, the
Senate would have to continue in perpetual
session. lie did not wish to see any change
in the rules of the Senate if it could be
avoided. IX the other side would forego
the needless repetition of amendments and
of the aye-aud-noe ■ votes the Senators
would soon tee daylight and soon be able
to go to their respective homes. The bill
had passed the House and had been consid
ered by the committee of the Senate. Its
general outline being on the scale
of a . protective ■ tariff, even of . a
high . protective ' tariff, the Republican
Senators did not deny that. It was the tariff
that would protect American ; industries
and build up nearly all the industries thai
could be employed in this country. It was
a ' pretty high protective tariff, and there
were some points In it ou which he would
be willing to yield. Still it had been re
duced in several important particulars be
low the bill passed by the Senate two
years ago. It seemed as though the Senate
ought to make more progress: with the bill.
'Vest said the Senator from Ohio ■ hail
stated that the bill was acceptable by his
side ;of the ; chamber. 'The record did not
Dhow that to be a fact. Ou the other Hand,'
the most aggressive attack! made upon
the bill had come from that side of the
chamber, and from the State that had
given the largest majority for the Repub
lican party in the late election. The record
would also show that a proportionately
larger number of Democratic Senators had
responded every time thn roll had been
called. He gave notice that every item in
the bill would be discussed, if necessary,
unless it was prevented by force being ap
plied in some sort of fashion.
The discussion having turned on the de
preciation of farming property, a statement
was read by Vest as to tee depreciation iv
some of the best farming counties in Penn
sylvania, and Cameron remarked that while
the statement was correct tho tariff was
not, in his opinion, the cause of it. Its
cause was the demonetization of silver in
1«73. Ever since that act the price of laud
and farm produce has decreased. Since the
passage of tho Silver Bill prices had risen
some 20 per cent.
Teller said that, as to the question of haste
in p.i-sing the bill, he was not disposed to
deny its opponents a fair and free discus
sion. He was vailing to stay and discuss
tlie tariff question or allow it to lie dis
cussed, Decause he believed the American
people wauted to Know whether tUe bill was
a proper revision of the tariff.
Finally a vote was reached on McPher
son's amendment, and it was rejected with
The paragraph relating to tiuned plate
haviug been reached. Vest said it was a
bold, naked attempt by Pittsburg manufac
turers to create another monopoly in their
own interests against the consumers of tlie
United States, lie moved to reduce the
rate of 2 2-10 cents per pound to 1 cent— the
present duty, aud Edmuuds asked louve to
oiler an order to be printed and to go over.
It is to the effect that during thu considera
tion of the Tariff Bill no Senator shall speak
more than once, and not longer than live
minutes on, or in respect of any one item,
or any one amendment, without leave of
the Senate. Such leave is to be gianted or
denied without debute, aud without auy
other motion or proceeding except such as
relates to procuring a quorum. Until the
bill shall have been gone through with to
the point of its third reading uo general
motion in relation to it other tuau to take it
up is to be in order. All appeals urn to be
determined at once ana without debate.
Finally Edmunds withdrew hU orders,
saving he would prescut it aeuin to-uior
A conference was ordered on the Indian
Appropriation Bill, and Dawes, Plumb uud
Call were appointed conferrees.
Allison, from the Committee on Appro
priations, reported, with amendments, tbu

hundred and seven hundred passengers

safely and the entire day was very pleasant

About 7 o'clock great thunderclouds be
gan to gather in the west and the sky to
darken. The wind freshened considerably,
too, aud a big storm was predicted. There
was yet one series of rapids to go through,
the ' 'retail, as dangerous as any on the
river, and the captain uf the Bohemian
thought he could reach there before dark
ness set in. The upperdeek forward of the
boat was packed with people, watching the
first plunge of the steamer, when thei'e was
a brilliant Hash o( lightning, the rain began
to fall in sheets, and the people made a rush
for the cabin and shelter as the steamer
entered the rapids. She rolled fearfully,
and th«i people surged from side to siue.
Suddenly the sound of cracking timbers was
heard, and women shrieked and fainted.
Thnn there were, heard several hoarse com
mands from the pilot-house to the crew to
clear the tiller chains. The upper-deck
beams had cracked, and the floor iv sinking
had jammed the tiller chains leading from
the pilot-house aft, and the steamer, in the
midst of the boiling rapids, was entirely
When it wns known that the boat was
unmanageaole, a panic ensued. Women
rushed here and there. Those that had not
fainted did so then, and worse than all, the
crew and waiters on board made a rush for
tlie pile of life-preservers in thu center of
the cabin and on the aiter-deck, and began
strapping them on.
Tlie war veterans aboard kept their wits
about them aud fought the cowards away
from the life-preservers, while as quickly
as possible they strapped as many as they
could tind on to the women and children.
There were not enough to half go round.
The boat meantime had turned entirely
around and was now goingduwn the rapids

jar. The steamer had struck a ruck. The
steamer slowly beuau to turn around again,
ana then came another shock, followed by
another, each one heavier than the first,
and the steamer gave a mighty heave aud
plunge hs if she was going down head first,
and then slowly turned her head to the
rapids. There was still another shock and
another rock was touched, and a plunge
followed, which was the last jump through
the rapids out into the open, clear waters,
and the captain yelled, "We are all right
The crew had got over their panic and
were working haul clearing the tiller-chains

electric lights. The only hindrance*
would be the cost, which, including tho
value of the specimens, would be
iv the neighborhood of £500,000. A genuine
mine in working order forms part of tha
programme, and it is safe to say that no at
traction at Chicago would be more gener
ously visited. The advance in silver has
put the miners and mine-owners in splendid
humor and it is iaia to predict that tlio
scheme will be worked out.

Advance in Hides and Leather.
New York, Aug. 11.— The price of shoes
is to go up. Hides and leather have been
advancing in price within the past few
uionth-c The South shoe manufacturers
contemplate an advance in their prices of
fully 10 per cent. In fact, at certain paints
this rise has already been made. On ac
count of the large stocks on hand in retail
ers' stores, this advance may not be noticed
for some time, but eventually it will be felt.
The cause for high prices is the scarcity ol
hides, which are now selling at 33 to 40 per
cent more than has been reached since 1879,
Finished calfskins have gone up 5 cents per
pound; oak slaughter, 1 cent; hemlock Bole,
2 cents. During the past week the Patent
Leather Manufacturers' Association of
Newarc, in which 'Jo per cent of the patent
leather in the country is made, decided
upon an all-round advance of 10 per cent.
