ing. After dinner tho delegates thronged tho
corridors of tho hotel and actively began tho
work which brought them here. Tho Now
York delegates on their trip to Washington
were tho guests of tho Pennsylvania Railroad.
The run from Jersey City to Washington was
accomplished in tho remarkably quick time
of four hours and thirty-three minutes. While
aboard tho train tho delegates raised an addi
tional guarantee fund of $15,000. This fact
was telegraphed to Mr. Depow and Mr. Coon,
who had remained in New York to assist in
getting tho fund completed.
Minneapolis is making a grand push for tho
convention, while California Is making a
great chow under tho guidance of Do Young,
of tho Chronicle, and Omaha's demand Is being
vigorously presented by Editor Rosewatcr, of
the Bee.
Colonel A. J. Blethen, of Minneapolis, re
views tho situation in this way : "There Is an
undercurrent favorable to the Northwest, and
emphatic for tho West as a whole. Tho West
objects to New York for sentimental reasons.
Tho West believes that no political aid could
como from holding tho Republican convention
in Now York. Tho West Is emphatic in its
declaration that to hold tho convention In tho
Mississippi or tho Missouri Valley, would glvo
great uld to tho Republican cause. Tho West
believes that such a wave of enthusiasm would
bo created asUo ensure tho absolute control to
tho party of tho entire Eastern and North
western States, oven to tho reclamation of
"But tho West just as radically believes
that to hold tho convention in Now York City
is to surrender to Wall street. While this is
puerility, so far as tho actual facts aro con
corned, every man hero from Minneapolis,
Oraabq, and California would swear that it
would cost tho Republicans of tho Mississippi
and Missouri valleys ono-quarter to one-third
of tho granger vote, which simply meanB de
feat in Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas, and doubt
ful results In Wisconsin, aud Montana, Tho
Minneapolis delegation bases its claims to the
convention on its ability to properly entertain
and care for the convention as demonstrated
by its entertainment of tho Christian En
deavor Convention lust June, when 12,000
delegates assembled in Exposition Hall con
tinuously for one week. Theso arguments
aro having their influence with tho committee.
Minneapolis, Omaha and California aro em
phatic for an open ballot when tho timocomes,
that tho country may know just how each
member of the committee casts his vote.
There Is a rumor that tho committee aro dis
cussing tho propriety of a secret ballot, which
tho West construes to bo in favor of Now
York City."
It is claimed by Now Yorkers that their
chances of success aro very good; that tho op
position in tho West will bo overcome; that
already there aro evidences of panic in tho
delegations,!' rom tho Western cities, caused by
tho vigorous campaign that is being con
ducted by tho large and stroiig delegation from
Tho New York delegation had a meeting
with closed doors at 0 o'clock in tho evening'
Tho New Yorkers say they will have twelve
votes on tho first ballot. Thoy aro hopeful
tho prUo will como to them, and they havo
begun to work hard for it. Hon. J. S. Fas
eett, tho member of tho National Commlttco
from Now York and also tho secretary of tho
committee, said last night that he was for Now
York City first, laBt, and all ho time. It was
too early yet, ho thought, to toll what tho out
como of tho committee's deliberations would
Detroit's advanco guard was reinforced last
night by tho arrival of a large dumber of
gentlemen from thot city and othor parts of
Michigan. Tho members of tho delegation
say thoy aro prepared to offer to tho conven
tion all that is necessary in tho way of accom
modations for tho delegates to the convention
and facilities for carrying on its work. Thoy
oxpoct, they say. to get a plurality of tho
votes of tho commlttco on tho first ballot. A
number of offers will come from tho South.
Tho manner in which Detroit cared for tho
Grand Army last Bummer, tho delegates eay,
will Influence some votes In their favor.
Tho Omaha peoplo Bay there is a kindly
feeling 'in favor of their city manifested by
tho committeemen called upon. They aro
feeling as much encouraged as they can well
foil at this etauo of tho game. It Is very evi
dent, tho delegates Bay, that the sentiment is
fast crystalizlng in favor of tho convention
going West for tho reason that its influenco is
more needed in that section of the country
than In any othsr.
Tho Minneapolis peoplo also expressed
themselves in a hopeful strain last night.
Thoy aro not making public any figures, but
thoy say they expect to havo a sufficient num
ber of votes on tho first ballot, which when
added to those Omaho claims, will make a
majority of all votes cast.
M. H. Do Youmr, the member of tho Na
tional Committee from California, is gratified
at tho progress that San Francisco Is making
In her fight for the convention. "There i6 going
to bo a long drawn-out contest," ho said last
night, "but San Francisco will get tho prize.
Tho prospects for it never looked brighter
than they do to-night."
Tho canvassing among tho delegates was
kept up until after midnight. Tho lobbies
of tho hotel and the headquarters of tho
various delegations were crowded with busy
workers. Very few members of tho National
Committee whoso preferences are not deter
mined upon would commit themselves to
voto for any city. Nearly all tho members
of the National Committee are now in tho
city or aro represented by proxy, and those
not hero are expected to-day.

A Pollticnl Crisis In Spain Action by
tho Queen Regent.
Madhid, Nov. 21. At a meeting of tho
Cabinet this morning Senor Sllvela, Minister
of tho Interior, expressed his desiro to resign
giving as his reason for this action tho fact that
all the politicians of Spain seemed to approve
of the programme announced by tho conserva
tive party. Even tho reformists, said Senor Sll
vela, had accepted tho conservative principles.
Senor Canovas del Castillo, president of tho
Council of Ministers, tried to dissuade Senor
Sllvela from his purpose, but all tho argu
ments ho put forth were of no avail, as tho
latter was fully determined to withdraw from
tho ministry. Thereupon Senor Villaverde,
Minister of Justice, said that as a political
crisis existed in tho country, all tho members
of tho council should resign their portfolios,
and thus leave tbo.Queen Regent unfettered in
her action. This' idea met with tho ap
proval of tho ministers, and, after some
discussion of tho matter, it was decided that
they should all retire from the positions thoy
occupied. Tho Queen Regent and tho presi
dent of tho council then hold a conference,
which ended in tho Queon Regent accepting
tho resignation of tho council and charging
Senor Canovas del Castillo with tho task of
forming a now ministry.

The Grout Football Contest Witnessed
by Twenty Thousand Peoplo Yale's
Splendid Tonui Worlt Mllss Plays a
Phenomenal Game.
SriuxariHLD, Mass., Nov. 21. Tho great
game is over and Yalo has won tho day. Fully
30,000 peoplo saw tho blue wave victorious on
Hampden Park to-day, and when tho great
contest was over it was tho unanimous con
viction that tho best team had won. Tho field
was in tho best possible condition, the day a
porfoct one. The Cambridge cloven wa6 out
played and tho best team won. Tho mighty
Hoffclfingcr and tho doughty little Bliss were
nn invincible pair, and to them chiefly belong
tho credit of Vale's victory. Harvard's rush
line was fatally weak and of little aesistanco
to her half-bac'ks, while Yale's lino was al
most perfect in tho guarding of their bacKs.
Behind tho lino McCIung proved much tho
weakest of tho Yale's. McCormlck showed
himself to bo a great ground gainer. For gen
oral all-round Avork behind tho lino Bliss car
ried off the honors of tho day. His tackling
and rushing were phenomenal, and
in punting ho was a good match
for tko Harvard captain. Behind
tho lino no word of criticism can be
charged to Harvard's team, but without any
support they were helpless against Yale's
lino tacklors. Tho blocking oil was wretched,
and tho Yalo rushers were down on tho backs
before thoy could start. Lake and Corbett
did somo line work, but it was of no avail
without strength in the line. Harvard's right
end, which was supposed to bo tho strongest
point in her rush line, was very weak, and
many of Yale's big gains were made around
this end.
It was a kicking game throughout. After
Yalo had scored the first touch-down in four
minutes, Harvard began to punt and continued
theso tactics during tho rest of tho game. In
tho first half the ball was in Harvard's terri
tory most of the time. In tho second half
Harvard forced tho playing much of the time,
and Trafford twice had a chance to try for a
goal from tho field, but failed in both in
stances. Tho gamo was called at exactly 2
o'clock, Yalo having the ball and the south
goal. Yalo was formed in the wedge and
made a, short gain. The ball went to Biles,
who made tho whole south rushers, the first
around tho lino. McCormlck then started on
tho first long run of tho gamo. Aided by fine
blocking ho dodged through almost tho entire
Harvard eleven, and was not downed until he
had reached Harvard's 10-yard line, nf ter a 45
yard run. Bucking the centre, tho Yalo backs
carried tho ball by 6hort rushes inside tho 15
yard line, and tho ball was pushed over tho
line, Morrison scoring tho touch-down in four
minutes' play. Tho ball was brought out and
McCIung failed on an e6y goal, score 4 to 0.
The second half opened at 3:18 o'clock. Har
vard formed tho wedgo and made little gain.
Trafford made a fine punt, carrying tho ball to
Yale's 25-yard line. McCIung tried to get
around tho end but lost ground and Bliss was
forced to punt. Trafford soon returned it
and Bliss caught the ball and tried to rush it,
but was downed by Nowcll on the Yalo 20-yard
lino. Harvard breached and hold tho lino in
better shape and Bliss was forced to punt.
When tho ball was passed back Bliss broke
through tho lino and tackled Corbett fiuely.
Trafford punted again and tho ball was downed
on Yale's 30-yard lino. McCIung took
the ball but lost ground again. Bliss punted,
and Corbett missed tho catch and' Wales got
tho ball. Bllsa found a fine hole in tho lino
and gained fifteen yards which McCormlck
followed with another run of twenty yards.
Harvard held for four downs and got tho ball.
Trafford punted again and tho same play was
repeated after getting tho ball again on four
downs. Bliss punted, and after Trafford had
bucked the centre for Ave yards, tho ball was
Sassed to Corbott. He was finely tacked by
Inckoy and in falling lost tho ball. Bliss
was on hand and caught tho ball on the bound
and with a clear field scored tho second and
last touch down. McCIung kicked the goal
and tho score was 10 to 0. Littlo tlmo re
mained audnarvard began to play desperately .
Tho ball was forced by short hard rushes, fell
down into Yalo's territory, and Trafford tried
for a goal from tho field but his ru6h lino failed
to hold and tho kick was blocked by tho Yalo
ruBhcr, but Ilallowell received tho ball finely.
Harvard continued to force the ball, and when
Yalo's ; 15-yard lino was reached, Trafford
tried again for a goal from tho Hold. It was
an easy drop kick but ho missed it and tho
last chance for scoring was ;lost. Yalo now
braced up, aud lu tho remaining time forced
tho ball up tho field. Time was called with
tho ball in Harvard's territory. Score, Yalo
10; Harvard 0.
McCIung Is a veteran athlete. His early
boyhood days were spent atKnoxville, Tenn.,
where he manifested great ability iu out-door
sports. Subsequently, as a pupil at Phillips
1JBI ft. I
Exeter Academy, ho was a leader in both base
ball and football. He was a catcher of tho

th Harvard team. His men call him "Bimie."

waa tho occasion of his being made captain.

Two Hundred RobelH and Twenty Sol
diers Slaughtered.
London, Nov. 21. A despatch from Tehe
ran, the capital of Persia, states that the
Mujtahld, or high priest of the Shah's sect,
which is the predominant religious sect of tho
country, its followers numbering nearly
7,000,000, recently fomented a revolt in
Mazanderan, a province in northern Persia.
The government took prompt measures to
suppress the revolt, and a body of troops was
dispatched to restore order anil to place the
high priest nnder arrest. The rebels were
prepared, however, and made a determined
resistance against tho Shah's soldiers. They
had entrenched themselves In a, 6tronir posi
tion and when summoned to surrender re
fused to do so. Orders were then given to
attack the stronghold of the rebels and a long
contested and desperate battle ensued. Tho
rebels fought with desperation, knowing full
well the punishment that would be inllicted
upon them by tho Shah should thoy fall into
his hands, but they were finally defeated, not,
however, until 300 of their number had boon
killed. The loss of the troops were 20 killed.
A largo number of the rebels were taken
prisoners, and it is expected that summary
justice will be meted to them. Among the
prisoners is tho high priest, to whose machina
tions tho whole trouble was due.
