ers estlmato. that the caravan had lost ono

130 mon, as the caravan numbered about 400

Stairs, Cant. Nolson, Dr. Parke, and Mr. M.
Jophson. It must bo remembered that dosort

rium, Botwacn tho two mon thoro Is hard
feeling ovor tho enstorn boundary lino of Mr.
King's proporty. Mr. King says that somo ten
yenrs ago ho bought of William Harper and
O. V. W. Eldrot a strip of land facing tho ocean.
It runs 800 foot Inlnnd, and Mr. King declares
that ho paid for a width of 147 foot On this ho
built ascn-curo hoto). His story is that tho
mon of whom ha bought tho land had a dls
puto about tho oastorn boundary with somo
ono else, and that not until two years ago was
ho told how that dtsputo was settled. Mr. King
had a pickot fence running along his land on
tho east on a line ovor which thoro was no dts
puto. Ho clalmod to own forty-sovon feet
further oast. Whon Harpor and Eldrot told
him their dispute was at an end they built n
homlock fonco forty-sovon foot dtstnnt from
Mr. King's plckotB. Then they Bald to him:
"Wo will sottlo the question by making an
nvenun for tho publlo betweon tho two fences."
Mr. King says he objected to this beoauso
thoy proposed to mnka a public nvenuo out of
his land. Ho fought it In nn easy way until
Inst Monday. Then ho realized that tho land
was gottlni: more and more valuable evory
yon r. nnd ho datermlned to onforco what he
considers to bo his rights. So ho had men
build n fence nt tho north end of tho avonuo."
This connected his plckots with tho homlock
fonco, and shut up tho sandy lane that lod
down to tho beach. That night Mr. King was
In Phllndolphln. Somo tlmo after dark his
matron. MIbs Cbarlotto Carlton, heard ham
mering, nnd saw a party of llvo mon knocking
down tho now fence. Sho called William
J. Blyth and Henry Wilson, two of Mr. King's
men. nnd togother thoy went to tho new fenoo.
Thoy say that Mr. Downing and a frlond,
Thomnt Tlldon. and somo Italians were tear
ing down tho fonco. Thoy had two big dogs
held with leathor Btrnpi. nnd whon Blyth or
dered them to stop demolishing tho fence Tll
don said to him, lie declares, "If anybody in
terferes wo will lynch him." Tho King peoplo
say that Tlldon nnd Downing threatened thom
with tho dogs, nnd finally knooked the now
lonce all to plecoB. ,, , .. ,
Mr. King has nut the enso in tho hands of
his lawyor. Mr. Downing wasn't at homo yos
tordny, but his wlfo Bald that hor husband
owned the proporty nnd had tho deods for it
Mr. King, howovor. Insists that it is his, nnd

It all depends upon Blalno whothor
Harrison wins ornot Tho Convention Is two
thirds Blalno. Strong as Shorman is, tho
friends of Blalno can beat him with Harrison
or Allison, or with Foraker or McKinloy. Tho
doubtful Stato behind Harrison is tho ono
thing that makes his position strong. There
Is nothing else In his candidacy, but that Is a
powerful factor with thoso hard-hoadod poli
ticians, who are playing ovory point for success.
Shorman has surprised evorybody by tho
trongth he has shown Blnco the stunning blow
ho suffered last night in having Mnhono's dolo
gatos thrown out His samo was put before
tho Convention to-day by clovor speakers, and
he got tho greatest hurrah ho has evor had In a
National Convention. Casual but artful refer
ences to Blalno by f different orators ovokod
far loss enthusiasm. That is ono of thu
mystorlous things about tho Blalno un

either the magnotlo name has lost its
potency, or tho development of Blalno as an
oloventh hour candldato, If such is to be tho
programme, Is ono of tho bost hlddon move
ments evor attempted in our politics. Thero
is no doubt that suoh a schomo Is on foot with

It Is a very quoor Convention indood, and tho

Even tho Chicago newspapers utlllzo tho sltua-
tlon for sportive paragraphs. To add to tho dls- '
comforts of tho press, an officious Uttlo man, '!
a Mr. Bayno of Pennsylvania, put through a . '
resolution to provont the correspondents gains; .',
among tho delegates to gather what can bo cot
In no other way. As a rulo. tho woos of news
paper mon aro uninteresting to tho masses, i"
but in this caso thoy aro half as numer

country waits upon tholr pons. Tholr
seats tako up as much spaco as tho

Tho Convention was called at 10 o'clock, and S
long boforo that hour tho pooplo flllod tho gal- ,'
lories. It was so hot In tho top gallory that tho
men took oH their coats and showod so many , '
shirts that thoy turned that gallory white.
Down in tho first balcony, ovor tho honds of tho I
Kansas delegates, sat Mrs. John A. Logan,
portly woman with whlto hair and In widow's
woods. She sat over tho picture of William A, ,
Soward. tho first of tho portraits that dock the
front of tho balcony. Bhe was not choorod or
recognized by the maj'ority.
There were somo auoer folks in tho gallorias.
One enormous man displayed a faco so in

with opera glassos boforo bis oyos and a flarlnrr
trumpet in ono ear. Thoro always is ono man i
at each Convention with a cry or yoll so po- - j
cullar as to rivet conoral attontlon. In St j
Louis tho most peculiar cry was that of a man
who barked llko a terrier. Horo thoro is a .
Southerner with a lugubrious, pathetic, pro-
longed yoll llko tbo wall of a lost soul. Ono
other notablo peculiarity of tho gallory display J
was tho preBonco of brilliant rod gowns in f
groat numbers among tho ladios. Chicago j
womon run to wholo suits of IntonBO rod. Any ?
ono who has scon tho traditional Mephisto on )
tho stage can Imagine how tho dear girls look;
as thoy blaze among the crowds In tbo streets.
In tho Convention hall thoy looked llko jots of
Chairman Esteo was In his place early with ,
nautical looking B. F. Jones at ono sldo ot him
and Carson Lako at tho other. AuEstooand
Jones bit down and Lako stands up tho latter
is the most conspicuous man In tho Conven
tion. Harry Smith, tho old journal clork of
Congress, was again at tho Chairman's elbow,
but It had been decided by tho Convention last
night that not even bo could mako a good
Chairman of Estoe. Tto first Impression Esteo
made was excollent but ho got rattled and I
went to pieces In tho confusion over tho .'
slaughter of Muhono and John Sherman's
boom last night. Had not Warner Miller camo
to his rescuo goodnoss only knows how tho
Convention would have got bock on the traok.

It was hotter than boiling mush. Tho Now I
Yorkers wero uncommonly prompt In getting; J

of tho three men who looks llko Chaunonr
Depow was In tho dolegates' seats. He VfHJ j
moving around among tho others as though
bn was a real boss like Chauncoy, with twenty
votes in his coat tall. Ho Is Mr. Whitney of tho I
delegation. Tho real Chauncoy's absonco from
the Convention during the last three sessions !
was explained this morning. Ho not only I
thinks hlmtelf a candidate, but Is convinced ho
will win. Never In modern politics has any y
man in his position heard so much plain talk :
ot a discouraging nature as Mr, Depow, Intl- I
mate friends, heavy-weight politicians, rail- j
road officials, and oven Joe Mod 1 11. to say noth- I
lng of Editor Itosowutor of tho Omaha Bee, I
bavo told him that ho cannot be noralnatod, (
and that If ho was ho never oould be olected,
The general understanding on Monday and ,
Tuesday was that although Chauncoy's head i
had buzzod with tho blggost Presidential j
bco on record, he had been satisfied of ,
tho impotency of his aspiration1 and jtraa
going to oik nothing more than a graceful exit I
by means ot a complimentary vote. But this
is not so. Ho has taken a now hold, and Is
mora strongly than over conviucod that his
tracks are the ones that lead to tho Whlto ;
Hour. Uls boom has been moved Into tho big
ladios' parlor, the boadquarters of his State,
and he is enjoying himself haranguing delega
