Stove Elkins and Col. Shepard En gineering the Empire State Boom. Prince Russell Tells Platt What Ieo Has Corralled and What lie Hopes to Get uorralled. New Yonx, April 17.-The announcement was made from Philadelphia recently that "there will be no reconciliation between Senator Quay and President Harrison, and as a result Mr. Harrison may eventually not be a candidate for renomination." It has caused much talk among the republi cans of New York state, and has done a great deal to develop the true relations be tween them and the president. It is said now on good authority that at the republi can state convention at Albany on April 28 the president's administration will be comn mended, and that there is little doubt that ex-Senator Platt, Chaunoey M. Depew, Warner Miller and Senator Hiscock will be selected as the "Big Four" to go to Mlinne apolls. The news from Philadelphia also says that the president will decline renomina tion unless Quay, Platt, Clarkson and "the rest" are solid for him. By "the rest" were meant Warner Miller, Col. W. W. Dudley, Sam Fessenden, of Connecticut, and others who took an important part in the Harrison battle of 1888. Concerning John Wanamaker's efforts to reconcile Quay with the administration it was as serted by high authorities that the post master general had been for some time ne gotiating with the senator, but that the latter would not be reconciled. The situa tion therefore, is that Quay will without doubt attempt to control the Pennsylvania delegation against the president; Col Dud ley will do the same thing in Indiana; Gon. Clarkson will do his utmost to the same end in Iowa. Here in New York Platt and Miller's followers are without doubt strongly ouposed to the president's renomi nation. Miller himself is as yet taking no part in the battle, but his friends have not as yet recovered from their anger at the president for refusing to recognize their idol after he was beaten for governor in 1888. Senator Hiseock is up to date a Har rison man, and Ghanneey Dspow rather leans that way. Both Hiscook and Depew have a certain following, but it is not to be compared to the republican armies which are behind Platt and Miller. When Secretary Elkinas and Postmaster Genegal Wanamaker were here recently, it was understood pretty generally that the visit was for peace purposes. Wanamaker was here to undertake to appease the antag ists of .the: president and Elkins had the same conutract: The only etronig'peaco man in the little party was Elkins, and he got very little encouragemsnent. Indeed the statement is made that the president is now compelled to rely for his boom in New York upon Elkins and Col. Elliott F. Shepard. The critics of the president say that he was very willing to accept the services in 1888 of Senator Quay, Col. Dudley, Gen. Clarkson, Thos. B. Platt, and Warner Miller, who are all against him now. It was recalled that Gen. Harrison, after his election and just before his inauguration, announced that it would be good republi can polities not to give so much attention to efforts to carry New York state. It is now said that in view of these utterances it will be quite useless for Seoretary Elkins to undertake to patch up a peace; further imore, that the situation has so chanized that not only the southern states, but also all the silver states, are opposed to Harri son, while as for Indiana, it is confidently I predicted that the president could not oomne within 10,000 votes of carrying his pwn state now. Altogether some of the most competent republican politicians saw in the announce meat that Harrison may possibly withdraw 1 the interesting conclusion that the presi- r dent is thoroughly aware of the forces ar- r i ayed against him, that the men selected to bring about peace in his favor haveys thus far utterly failed, that while the voting repub licans respect him he has aroused no enthn siasm in their breasts, and, in conclusion, that he will not thrust himself upon the Minneapolis convention unless the minds d of the party leaders are changed toward hir. . T'l'h situation in New York state may or b may not chanee as a result of a recent visit ii of Russell 1. Harrison, son of the president, t to ex-Fenator Platt. Young Mr. Harrison, v in his iriterview with Platt, said that he had f traveled through the south, and from his Y own observations and efforts and also in h the west he was confident that the dele- a gates had been secured to the president. 0 The younn gentleman added that he had ti now corne to New York state and that he u wise to make it his effort to corral the dole gates for his father. He believed that he I' would be suceessful. Platt stroked his beard and smiled, and later when Warner Miller heard this story he was tickled to pieces. a A NOVEl, SOHEIME. i HIow the DeInver News Proioses to Elect a ' Free Coilane Prlesidehlnt. DENVlER, Col., April 17.-The Rocky Moantain News in a leading editorial to morrow will put forward a plan of aonm paignu to be followed should Cleveland, or el someone who holds his views, be nominated, ar It says: "There cre thousands of republi- tl cans in Colorado who will not vote for Har- ol rison, and thousands who will not vote for a' Cleveland. Yet driven from their own o parties by nominees wearing the yoke of Wall street, they will be disinclined to vote for the nominee of the Omaha convention, who, though sound on silver, will also rep resent so Leany issues tlhat judgement can pi not assent to them." It says the , ldemocrats in tie state convention, if the action at Chicago shall force it, may nominate electors Ci pledged to vote against (oeveoland and for 01 such free coinage democrats as Senator Morgan, of Alabama, and Congressman Iland, of Missouri. It urges that this course be pursued by the democrats of Colorado, California, Montana, Wyoming, y Iows, INevada, Wuasuington and Oregon, i also by those of anusas, Nebraska and cer tain siothrrn statesO. Byv this course, it 10 says, the integrity of the demooratic or. 1; ganization will be preserved, and the aleo- Ci tion for president thrown into the house, rii in which event a free ooinage candidate would ultimantely be elected, and a frue coinage snentiment produced by such a can vass, would insuare the eloection of a f eo coinage congress. The course of the Cleve land contingent in New York is urged as no ample warrant for the irregularities. eu The article closes as follows: "This der kil nier resort for free coinage men is worthy te of calm and earnest consideration. That this suggestion be passed over lightly the 'ravity of the silver situation forbide. liens of thousands who signed the pledge of the silver league look for some such nu Iraectical iplan by which they may constitu- no tionally and consistently exercise their is sutfrage effoctively. The movement, if tol undertaken, will demonstrate that demo. olats and republicans are no longer howere of wood and drawere of water for the Wall street plutocrats who now almost entirely dominate one political party antd have par alyzed the free coinage majority in the other." Gorman May Not lie In the Fight, 3ALTMOrrn i, April 17,-A close personal and political friend of Senator Gorman said to-day that it was probable that the senator would not be a delegate to the national democratic convention, and It was not likely he would continue as a moam bar of the national committee from Mary. land, as he is physically unable to stand the labor and strain that would be put upon him in the campaign. In That Event 111il Will Itn. ALrANY, April 17.-The Telegram says Hill is not likely to be a candidate, but if the Chicago convention cannot agree upon any other his dfame will be presented. The paper further states that if Harrison is re nominated neither Cleveland nor Hill could carry New York, and Governor Flower is the only available man. Bloth Parties Must Take a Stand. PITTUnoni, April 17.-General A. J. War ner, of Ohio, representative on the execn tive committee of the National Silver asso oiation, who was in the city to-day, said it is intended to put the silver question thoroughly before the national conventions and compel the parties to define their posi tions thereon. TIlE POPE'S POSITION. Submission Euds When the Right to Order It Ceases. PAnse, April 17.-A pastoral letter from the archbishop and bishops of some of the provinces was read in the churches to-day. Referring to the pope's recent encyclical, the pastoral says: "Some good Catholios were shocked to find his holiness enjoining the faithful to accept the republic. The attitude of the holy see solely implied re spect for and deference to the powers that be. The pope expressly declares that that respect be observed only so long as required by the exigencies of the common weal. The duty of submission ceases when the right to com mand it ceases." Rlegarding the concordat the pastoral says: "It is the duty of Catho lies to speak, write and act against laws that strike at the beliefs and interests of the faith, They will most effectively ful fil this duty by electing men who respect religion." Regarding education, the pas toral declares religion has been suppressed and practical atheism taken its place, de stroying faith and morality. None Anxious to Try Ravachol. PARrs, April 17.-Persons on the jury most likely to be empanelled for the Ravachol case are panic stricken and seeking pretexts to avoid serving. An infernal machine, filled with powder, eighty Gavelot car tridges and a quantity of scrap iron, with burning fuse attached, was found in the electric lighting shed of the Compagne du Nord, at Lillie, to-day. In an interview with his brother to-day, Ravachol said: "I am neither a visionary nor a fire-brand. I wished to feel the pulse of the revolutiona ry movement. To be candid, I find it does not beat. If it did, my example would be followed by others. Instead of this, they call me a criminal. I have written my me moirs, covering my whole life. . Let me be judged by these." The Authorities Are Frightened. Rio JA'nETRo, April 17.-President Piexoto is sending two expeditions to put down the insurrection in the state of Matto Grosso, which has now assumed such serious pro portions as to frighten the authorities. It is expected the land and sea forces will combine for an attack on Cuyaba. It will take from ten to twelve days for them to reach their destination. They Smashed It.

Mlay Day Parade Abandoned. PAnIs.

CINCINNATI, April 17.-A mnorning paper prints a story without the names of the ac tors that may develop into a romantic mur der mystery. Ninemonths ago an unknown man was found dead in the Ohio river near Rising Sun. Indiana. His skull was broken but the coroner found no evidence of crim inal violence. The story in the paper is that a woman converted at a religious re vival in Indianapolis, within a month con fessed that she and her husband nearly a year ago knocked an elderly man in the head on the Covington bridge, robbed him and threw the body into the river. It is said detectives are working on the case and the husband has left Indianapolis for parts unknown. Hlighbinders After Christian Chinamen. ST.

Filers. will have advantage of the settler as he will r- be able to make declaration before the a- settler can possibly reach desirable lands. o- The "anta Fe is preporing to run nunmerous it trains into the reservation the day of the n opening, and the race for those on horse back or in wagons will be a long one. Mer chants with loads of goods and of all con ceivable kinds of business are on hand and a few hours after opening will boe doing business at the county seats. Thousands to have already given up hopeof getting homes and will leave at once. Many hope to be r able to purchase claims of sooners and ie squatters. At Kingfisher the land receiver Y. has decided that a line formed four weeks I, ago has no legal status and there is serious 3s talk of forming another line, in which Ig event trouble will follow and possibly t bloodshed. On the way here by rail, after leaving 3 Caldwell, Kean., one begins to. see wagon e trains pressing forward to the reservation. In all parts of the prairie boomers' wagons - and various kinds of vehicloes are making for the promised land, There are also some on horseback and some on foot. f ome are well provided for and some only possess what they wear. The nearer the reservation the thicker the boomers. The crowd here is quiet and orderly and thin ning rapidly, as everybody is making for the line. A big ghost danoe is reported in progress to-night at the camp of Left Hand, the great Cheyenne chief. Some two hundred bucks are said to be participating, but no it trouble is anticipated from the dancers, as rations will be issued to-morrow and the . Indians are in good humor. 5 Land companies organized at El Reno i, and Reno City have decided to locate on same quarter sections, and it is feared h trouble will result when the contest comes. DISAPPOINTCIENT FOR M[ANY. Five People for Each Homo Waiting to I BRush on the Reservation. K.trxoreegi., O. T., April 17.-Boomers are swarming like bees along the line of the y reservation, and Kingfisher presents the wildea. scenes of excitement ever expe e 'rienced.- Old soldiers are discouraged and many are leaving for home. The parties responsible for the instructions regarding the opening are loudly denounced, and one D prominent Iowa veteran to-day wired Sen ator Allison to Induce the president to re- I cr. id the order and save the old soldiers i and Ben Harrison. With all the wild ex- J citement no serious trouble or casualties r Shave occurred. The troops have their I hands full keeping the boomers out of the < reservation. New maps showing the Indian allotments have intensified the feeling, as the Indians have most of the choice landa and control the greater part of the wood and water. The same scenes of excited ac- I tivity prevail all along the line. Doubtless there are five persons for each claim in the reservation, and if the rush continues un abated, before next Tuesday not one in ten i can, get a home. The non-appearance of e the president's proclamation opening the I reservation, although Secretary Noble wired it would be opened on the 19th, is causing much anxiety, as the colonists are uncertain as to their future movements. Good for the Legitimate I3oomnor. EIL RENO, O. T., April 17.-Land speula- n tore are finding fault with thb ruling of the r land office prohibiting filing on more than h two claims.

A Colored Man Helps oenvlet a Murderer and Then IDies. WAaIIInoToN, April 7.--Jnmes W. Cooper. one of the colored men who served on the jury in the Hehnoider murder trial, died yesterday as a result of that service. Cooper was one of the best known and most highly respected colored men in the city. For many years he had boon a prodnce dealer, and his patrons numbered the best people in the city. lHe wa a robust manr, acous torned to outdoor life. .bortly after he wae drawn on the jury his health began to fail. 'the long continement and conltsecllent nmental strain told upon hirm alarmingly, and when he was discharged he liad lost over thirty pounds in weight. After the verdict was rendered he was taken home in a carriage and immediately went to bed. Two days afterward lie ie carme delirions, and when uneonscious frequently repeated aloud and without variation this sentence: "The man we found gnilty as indicted, is guilty, and they will hang him in May or dune. We have done our duty befaro O(od and roman. Hie in guilty, ouiltv, guilty." Cooper had supported a large family with the proceeds of his busi neiis and leaves in destitution a wife and six children, the youngest a five-monthe old baby. An interesting statement is made in this connection regarding the length of timer required by the Sohneider jury to east a sin gle ballot. The jury was out nearly an hour, but it is snow aid that unoon reaching their roomu to deliberate upon their verdict the entire jury, led by the foreman, went down on their knees and in tuinl prayed God to guide and direct them. They then took a ballot which was unanimously cant for a verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree. The ballot taken, the jury thouen knelt in prayer, the foreman asking God to forgive the man whom they had condlemned to death, and praying that he would bless all who had participated in the trial and those who had been wronged and bereaved by the prisoner's terrible crime. Then the foreman signalled the bailiffs that they had agreed upon a verdict and the jury solemnly filed back into the crowded court room. MARTIAL LAW MAY FOLLOW. The Situation in Northern Wyomin, Growing More Serious. CHIEYSNNE, April 17.-Great anxiety is fel, here by the friends of the imprisoned stock men and by the state authorities over the situation in Johnson county. The orders of Governor Barder directing that the cap ,tured stockmen at Fort McKinney be brought to Douglass and the order te Sheriff Angus to turn over the four vrison ere he holds to the military au thorities has served to arouse intense excitement throughout northere Wyoming. Small ranchmen believe the in vaders will be spirited out of the reach of the county authorities and by some legal juggling escape trial or punishment for killing Ray end Champion. The governot disclaims any intention of aiding the pris oners to escape punishment, and says that they will be turned over to the civil authorities as soon as adequate protection due all prisoners can be given. The wires have been down since the orders to have the prisoners brought tc Douglass were sent, and word of the gover nor's intention to ultimately turn the pris ousra over to the civil authorities has not reached northern Wyoming. The latest in formation from there is that the ranchmen are arming and congregating at Buffalo. The evident intention is to prevent the pris oners being taken out of the country. If they can be convinced the stockmen will be dealt with according to law, it is generally believed they will disperse to their homes and no violence will be offered the captives. If they become convinced the stockmen will escape legal punishment, serious trouble is probable and will result in the country being placed under martial law. CANADA'S EX-PREMIER DEAD. Hon.

The Reported Shut-Down of the Upper Works the Cause. A Denial Comes From Anaconda That Anything of the Kind iHas Taken Place Over There. I3rrrTr, April 17-..[Special.1-Three hun dred and fifty men were laid off at the mines of the Anaconda company here this evening. It is understood that as many more will be laid off to-morrow. The mines will. however, keep running with half the full force. The reduction in force is owing to the reported ehutting down of the upper works at Anaconda last night, butno reason has been assigned for this. The Upper Works Not to Close. ANAcoNDA, April 17.-[-ISpecial.]-In spite of many statements to the contrary, the Anaconda company will not close the upper works. or any other part of its smelting plant.

AFTER CAMPAIGN THUNDER. r Republicans Trying to Delay the Ad journment of Congress. WASnrHINTON, April 17.-At the house end s of the capital the impression prevails that e the republicans in the senate intend to de e lay final adjournment until late in August o or September for the purpose of manufact uring political capital to be used in the coming campaign. Thus far they have t been unable to add much to their stock in trade, for in all the debates on the silver and tariff questions, the democrats have scored the ereater number of winning points. Representative bayres of Texas, of the appropriations committee, predicts e that an adjournment may be reached by the 1st of August. provided the senate acts a promptly on the general appropriation bills. It is expected that the republicans will endeavor to swell the appropriations in the senate far beyond the limit fiaed by the house in order to justify the action of the "hbillion dollar" congress. If they will consider the revenues of the treasury, says Mr. Seyree, they will discover that the re ceipts of the novernment will not permit lavish expenditures. Baron Fava to Return. WAsurINGToN, April 17.-F. A. Fava, Jr., son of Baron Fava, speaking of the report that his father had been ordered back to Washington, said he was satisfied the baron would come back.

The professor further says the Italians are jubilant over the settlement of the misunderstanding and it is also thought Italy will make an exhibit at the World's fair. Thils Week In Congress. WAsOmOToN, April 17.--It is probable the week's congressional business will be of but passing interest. In the senate the appro priation bills will be pushed ahead, and it is possible the Chinese question may come up. In the house the Noves vs. Rockwell election contest and the applopriation bills will be the principal subjects of interest.
