Therewas much Chicago talk In the air this
mornlne when tho members of tho several
rlolecathns began to gather about tho Ar
llncton Ilotol. It was rumored that Chairman
llrioi. Senator Hill, Sonntor Gorman, nml
rctiator lliu hour, now known ns tho "Big
I'our." hail decreed that tho Convention should
go to Chicago. Tho reasons woro sulci to bo Ita

who aro hero nnd by tho Democratic moralers
it Hie Illinois delegation who aro taking any
Interest In tho contest Kansas City especially
teemed to ho tearful that Chlcaco would carry
off tli prlzo. and St. Paul also complained
that the World's Fair olty was working iu an
iirJerh.inded manner to secure the Conven

The Btate was Democrntlo. und If it cot the
Convontlon it would not only bring to tho sup
port of thn party candidate tho eight electoral
votes already insured by tho now law provid
ing for district representation, but It might
bring nil the others to which the btato Is en
titled. Then thoro wns good hunting and fish
ing In tho Mate, and It tho politicians didn't
euro for that kind of sport they could go fishing
for electoral votes and go gunning for what
was lelt of the Republican party.
. Congressman Logan J. Chlpmnn followed
Mr. Muybiiry. Ilo said that ho did not want
to reflect on Now lorfc. tlm homo of Cleveland,
Hill, and Richard Crnker. nor was ho disposed
to cast any reflection upon tho other compet
ing cities, but he was sum that tho proper
plaeo lor tho Convention was Detiolt. "If you
otn't give It to Detroit." ho said, "than locate
It In Minnesota. Wisconsin. Illinois, or Ohio."
This sentiment wns loudly cheered by tho St.
l'n nl. Milwaukee, and Cincinnati delegations.
Judge fhlpman said that his city hud just en
tuitulneJ tho national encampment of tho
lirand Army of tlio Republic, nnd had cared
for the thousands of vMtois nmply and
easily. Ilo declared that tho gathering wns a
greet Republican demonstration, under the
leadership of lien. Russell A. Alger, a candi
date for l'resldent on the Republican ticket of
Wi'J. In closing. Mr. Chlpiuan again declared
that, wlieiovor the Convention should bo lo
cated. -Michigan would go Democratic If
you can't coino to Detroit." ho said, then
come to some othor Western city." The West
em delegations again cheered, nnd aftortho
confusion had subsided Indianapolis wns
culled.
fi'iiittrtr David Turplo modo the opening
speech for Indianapolis. Ills remarks wore
devoted principally to statistics as to that
city's hotel accommodations, Its number of
boarding houses, and Its railroad und telegraph
facilities. Tho Senator Rot a little mixed on
his guugrnpliy befoio ho got through and
spnko or "i'inclnnati. Jlo.." and "Baltimore.
Del." The Senator coneedod that nil of the
Western cities wore amply able totakocarnot
thn crowd, and perhaps wero entitled to politl
oil eonsldeiiitions In the tight, but he declared
that Indianapolis possessed advantages over
all. and ns Indiana whs tho pivotal Stato. the
Convontlon ought to ue conceded to her.
Charles U .lewelt. Chairman of the State
Central Committee, followed tho Senator and
nuidon political speech. He declared that In
Indiana evnry man Was a politician. This wns
particularly so In the Democrutia party, be
cause of tho bitter nnd unscrupulous fight
waged upon tlm party by the Republicans
merjr four yours. Indiana hnd been prac
tically tho battle ground in tlm Inst
four campaigns, nnd It had gone Re
publican twice and Democratic on two
iieeasions. Ho believed it would go
Dcmocintic In the coming election, but ho
wanted tho party to mnko success sure by
giving Indiana the Nntlonnl Convontlon. It
was nut n new sousatlon for Indiana to havo a
place upon the national ticket, but it would bo
a now sensation indeed for Indiana Demo
crats to have tlio Convention. Henssured tho
committee that nn earnest effort would bo
miuloto carry the stnto for the Democracy,
even if Indianapolis failed to get tho Convon
tlon. but ho felt that political wisdom would
locate the Convention at the Hoosier capital.
nuiiMis City hnd the next opportunity to pre
sent Its claims. G. V. Putnam made tho first
spcoch. Ho told how mnny passenger trains
run in nnd out of Kunsns City In a day. and ho
snld there wero Hi! hotels nnd 1(50 hoarding
houses In his town that wero yearning for
Democratic occupants. A convontlon hall
that would sent r.MMJO persons was to bo built,
mid he suggested that the committee send its
own architect, to supervise the construction.
An nmple fund hud boon raised for tho enter
tainment or delegates anil visitors, and Kan
sas City would ceitatnly give tho Democracy a
hearty welcome.
Senator Vest followed Mr. Putnam. Tie
made a rather humorous speech, and was fre
iiueutly interrupted by laughter and applause
He explain, d that Kuiimis City had greater
hotel accommodation, neenrdinc to its popu
lation, than nnv city in the United States,
They I. ad been left over from tho boom. Kan
sas City had built hotels, anticipating rt popu
lation of n million. The population had not
yet come, nut! the hotels weio nnxlous to en
tertain the Democracy. He said that if Kan
sas City could not get tho Convention it
ought to coino to some other Western
citv. New York did not need It. and
shouldn't have II. "New York will bo
tho battle ground In the coming Convention."
bo said, "an I we should not court a factional
tight livtnk'inc It to that city." Then he com
plimented tho Tammany tlgor. nnd said it was
bigger than any convention, and was not di
vided by tactions. Tammany always know
what it wanted, nnd its voice wos nlwaysunan
inioiis. Chicago didn't want tho Convention,
and did not need II : nor did the beautiful nnd
placid eityo Milwaukee need it. Milwaukeo
was not central, and was overshadowed by
its siter city, only eighty miles awny.
He was opposed to St. Paul because the
Democracy was already accused of tenting
on i.einiiilicnn eunip grounds. The Republi
cans wore going to hold their Convention in
Mlniieupolis, and tho Democrats should keep
out of that neighborhood. Besides. Missouri
was a Democratic State, and wns entitled to
party consideration. Its sixteen electoral
utes would be cast for tho Democracy whor
evor the Convention mlglit bo held and who
ever tho candidate might be. But there was
missionary work to bo done around tho bor
ders of Missouri, and tho Influence of
tho Convention, if hold in Kansas City,
might be effective lor good. Only across
thn river was the State of Kansas,
a prohibition Republican Stnto where social
Irrigation was impossible, except In cavernous
and uncanny recesses or amid the pills nnd
powders of a drug store. The speaker invited
the Doniocrncjr of tho nation to visit Kansas
Cit'y. enjoy Missouri Democrntlo hospitality,
and contemplate the arid political waste
across the river, wheio social drought and Re
publican fnnntlclsm prevailed.
tlov. l'uck or Wisconsin then nppenred for
Milwaukee. His speech was short, but it kept
the committee nnd the spectators In u roar
of laughter from beginning to close He left
the statistical details to Milwaukee speakers
who might follow him. but 1m told how tho
State had boon redeemed from Ropublican rulo
und wns now In good Demnciatin hands.
"Thoro is not a Republican oDlcehohler now
In the Slate." lie said, "from the man who
tends tho electric lights in the dome
which blnros out toward Mlnnosota and
Kansas City down to tiie stoker in tlm
engine room In tho tasementot the Capitol,
except one colored man, and wo keen him just
tor luck. Our climate Is so beautiful that our
own citizens walk the streets at night from
eholce. Conio and luing your wives wltli you,"
lie suid nn a coneluding nppenl to tho commit
tee, "mid our Indies at home will tako cure of
them and give tbu husbands a ehaticc."
Mayor Somers followed. Ho piesented a
written guarantee of SIOO.OOO raised for tho
entertainment of tho Convention, nnd repre
senting citizens whoso wealth is estimatod at
S.'o.lHiu.OlMt. lie snld that tho Convention hull
would nccommodate'22.(MKj jiersons, nnd that
the hotels of Milwaukee wero nmplo for the
largest crowd that could be gathered. Ho
s.ild tho city could entertain enslly fjO.000
guests, and in closing ho filed with tho secre
tary tho coitlflod statement us to Milwaukee's
Pledges.
Mr. Donnelly mndoafew romnrks. In which
he eited the political Importance of holding
tlmCi.liventlmi In Wisconsin. Mllwuukeo was
the centre of the Gorman population, ho suid,
and the (iernians held tho balance of power,
if tlm city went Democratic at tho spring nice
tlon the State would surely follow in the fall.
If tin. Convent Ion were Klvento Milwaukee Its
liilliioncn would lei Immediately felt in tho
city and thioiighout the statu, nnd Wisconsin
would give Its electoral voto for the Deuiu
emtio candidate.
Now York next presented her claims. James
Broslln. proprietor of the (lilsey House np
penred In behalf of the New York hotel keep,
ers. He said thoro weio 'J00 hotels In the city,
and thev could accommodate easily HKJ.OW
guests. Now York's people were hospitable,
nnd the hole! keepeis would promise
not to raise their nijes. lie thought tho
service of tho New ioik hotels was bettor
than that to In. found In any other city, nnd If
tint delegates to tlm Convention desired, it
would I'O iinmiged to ontiTtiiin tlinni at kuiiiii
of tho seashore hotels justoutuf New York.
They could eume tn the Convention m tho
morning, and, having biniight their families
with them, could siend the evenings at thoi.o
hllbuilmn idiiees nml summer resorts. Them
was a big shout vvlion Bresllii referred toSonu
tor Hill as "thogient Kohlnoor Democrat."
Comptroller Myers was the next speaker for
NowVurk. Ho i lodiiei'd his manuscript and
read an argument Indicating that New York
ought to have the Convention because It was
the great pivotal Statu und the greatest nope
of the Democracy. .......
John it. Fellows followed. He advised the
committee to bring the Convention to New
York because It was the real centre of Democ
racy. "If you want to learu Democracy at its
purest fountain." he said, "come to Now York
and tuke Inspiration from tho most enthusias
tic Democrat In thn land." The delegat on
In the rear of tlio room shouted Its approval of
thU sentiment, and Mr. Fellows wont on with
nn eloquent nppeul in behalf of his
city. He declared that whatever might
be tlm decision of the committee. New York
would givo at least U.'.tKvd majority lor tlm
ticket next fall New York, he said, did not
numl tho Convention in tho sense that some of
tlm ntlmr competing cities asked for It. buttho
invention needed Nuwiork. It needed Now
York because that city's facilities were ample
beyond those nf any competitor. Its litmus
pherii wan Democratic, and trie Democrats
who might attend from all purts of the country
could there Ipnrn lessons of Democracy that
would benefit thorn and Inspire them and di
rect them to succoss. Besides, every Amorl
can citizen hoped to visit New York before
death, ns he hoped to go to heaven aftorwnrd.
and for 'hut reason, too, the committee should
locate the Convention In New York, and giro
every Democrat in the land an opportunity to
visit It.
San Francisco's appeal was short, apparently
becauso those who made It felt that It was
hopeless, M. F. Tarpey, tlm member of the
National Committee for California, made tho
first spoech. Ue spoke of Ban Frnnclsco's nm
ple hotel accommodations. He deolared that
It wns rivalled by no city In tho Unltod States.
Tho railroad facilities were nmply sufficient,
nnd Mr. Tarpey, In behalf of tho city, promised
that It tho Convontlon were located in San
hrnnclsco a rate would be furnlshod each
dnlegnto nnd National Committeeman nnd vis
itor from tho Fast of $.r0 from tho Missouri
River to tlm const and return, good for six
months. Tho hall, printing nnd music would
ho furnished freo, nnd the hotels would ngroo
not tochnrgo any more than tholr regular
rates.
, J. V. Coleman, representing tho buslnoss In
terests of the city, lollowod In a brief speech.
In which he repeated the assurances made by
Mr. Tarpey. Ho also declared that the young
Democrats of tho coast felt that tho party
ought to recognize them by giving tho Con
vention to their section of the country. Ho
said that little recognition hnd beon glvon to
the const by the Domociacy. and If tho Con
vention, wero located at San Francisco, not
only might a political Influence lie developed
in favor of tho party on tho const, but the
young Democrats would be encouraged tor the
future. Ilo could assure the delegates nnd
visitors of n cordial welcomo and hospitable
entertalnmont.
St. Paul was the Inst city to bo heard. Bofore
any of tho spoeches wero made, n telegram
signed by a local committco was road stating
thntslOO.tXH) hnd noon raised for tho con
struction of a tiro-proof auditorium In which
to hold tho Convention. It would havo a seat
ing capacity of llt.OOl). This wns lllcd with
Secretary Sheorln. nnd E. V. Lnwler made a
short address. He said that 51'J pasengor
trains went In and out of Kt Paul daily, nnd ho
gave statistics regarding tho hotols. lie said
St. Paul had no favorite sons or dark horses,
nnd wns committed to nn political cnndldato
and pledged to no political thoory. St. Paul
nskedforthe Convention In good faith, and
promised to give it tho clearest political at
mosphere touo found In tho whole country.
Kx-Congrossman Wilson followed inn rather
long speoch. in which ho told of tho recent.
Domocrntlc gains In tho Northwest, and thn
Iiopo held nut to tlm party for tho future. Tlm
Democratic parly of the nation had rather
overlooked tho Dotnocrats of tlio Northwest,
but since the principles of Democracy were
beginning to spread in that section, thoy felt
that they ouehtto bo recognized. Ho believed
tho location of tho Convention nt St. Paul
would have n potent intluence, nnd that tho
Democratic majorities given in tho last Con
gress election would be iiicreaod. Tho hopo
of Hie Democracy wns in tho Northwest, nnd
especially tho farmers of that section woro
aligning thomselvos with the faith that tho
Democratic party had been teaching tor years.
This closed tlm speeches for tlio various
cities, and soon after 7 o'clock tho committed
took n recess until H.
Whon thocommlttoe reassembled ntOo'cloek
It wont Into executive sosslon nnd began bal
loting. Much to the snrprlso of ovorybody
else, Kansas City led on the first ballot with HI
v.ites. Milwaukeo nnd Sun Francisco hnd
10 apiece. St. Paul got 7. New York .".
Cincinnati .'!. Indianapolis and Detroit 1! each,
and Chicago, although not a candidate, re
ceived one. Kansas City lost ono on tho
second ballot nnd Milwaukee gnlnodtwo votes,
standing respectively 11! and ID. St. Paul's
voteremnlned unchanged nnd so did San Fran
Cisco's. Cincinnati dropped toonlyone and Chi
cugo gained ono. Indianapolis got three instead
of two, Now York wns reduced to four, and De
troit held her own with two. On the third bal
lot several complimentary votes wvnt
to San Francisco, running that mty's
support up to II teen. Chtcngo gained
another one and hansns City lost sev
en, hor vote being thus suddenly reduced
to five. Milwaukee dropped down to only
eight. St. Paul took third place with nine. Cin
cinnati got three. Indianapolis two. nnd New
Y'ork und Detroit only ono each. The fourth
ballot wns about as badly scattered.
St. Paul shut up to first placo
with thirteen votes. nnd Milwaukee
held second place, though she polled only R
Indiannpolis got 7, Kansas City tt, Chicago and
Detroit 3 each. San Francisco lost her com
plimentary votes, dropping to only ''. New
York had just 1, as sho had on tho previous
ballots.
On tho fifth ballot Cincinnati took first rank
with eleven votes, and Kansas City and Mil
waukee tied each other for seeond placo with
ten apiece. St Taul ban eight, a loss of live.
New York got four, and Chicago merely re
tained her three. Indianapolis diopped buck
to her original two. Detroit received just ono.
and San r runclsco went out of the race.
On the sixth ballot Detroit was fnvored with
a complimentary vote, or rather the committee
continued its experiments in trying tho
strength of various cities. Detroit got It) votes
in place of tho modest 1 it had recoived
on tho previous ballot. Milwaukee went
buck to eight, but held second place, nnd St.
Paul also lot two, takingthird place with only
six votes. Kansas City got five. New York and
Indianapolis three apiece, nnd Chicngo and
Cincinnati two ench, tho latter city losing nine.
Another experiment was tried on the soventli
ballot, and lies Moines, which had not been
nnnnunced as a candlnuto. received 17 votos,
leading all the others. Milwaukee got back
one of tho votes she had lost and
polled nine, und Kansas City gained
two. getting seven. Four went to
St. Paul, three each to Chicago and New York,
two to Cincinnati, und ono npieoe to Indianap
olis and Detroit.
More experiments were tried nn the eighth
ballot, and the voters that had complimented
Des Moines with their support deserted the
lown city for Indianapolis. The luttor'.s voto
was suddenly Increased from one to twonty

WAsnntaTON, Jan. 21. Both Houses of Con
gross having adjournod over unttt Monday, no
message from tho Prosidont can bo sent in for
three days at loast Tho knowledgo of this
fact hns served to losssn tho oxottomont about
Chilian affairs, and to causo tho talk of war to
rapidly subside Thoro have beon absolutely
no dovolopments In tho controversy to-day.
No cable despatches have boon rocolvod. and
no conference hold. Thore woro few outward
signs of excltemont at the Navy Department,
but those vrtio had a knowledge of what
was going on behind closod doors as
sorted that tlio authorities had relaxed
in no degroo from the position of expectation
and preparation which it has held for tho past
week. An ofllcor who sees a groat deal of tho
Secretary of tho Navy, and Is in nt all tho con
ferences and secrot meetings that aro hold In
Mr. Tracy's private office. Is authority for tho
statement thnt tho preparations for war with
Chili go on In not only equal measure as dur
ing tho past fow days, but that thoy have been
in fact redoubled. Tho action of tho Navy De
portment In continuing its efforts Is tho
strongest proof that the poacuful aspect
of tho situation may bo disturbodat nny mo
ment. Tho (Administration Is hopeful that
some assurance of apology will bo forthcom
ing from Santlngo within a day ur two.
Tho action of tho Prosldont in doluying the
sending of his messngo is criticised sovorcly,
both by those adherents of Mr. Blatno who nro
not friendly to Mr. Harrison nnd by tho warm
supporters and defenders of tho Proaidont It
wns stutod several days ago by more than ono
member of tho Cablnot who expectod his
words to be published, that the mossnge would
bo sent to Congress not later than to-day,
and yet nothing bus been received to niter tho
situation or mnko tho insult of tho Chilians
loss nggrnvatlug. Thore is a general fooling
that in pursuing a courso of vacillation and
delay tho President is weakening his hereto
fore strong nnd popular position In the contro
versy. In all that Is said on tho subject of do
lay tho nume of Blnlno is mixed up. nnd it
seems to bo vory genornlly agreed that the
Soeretary of Stato has successfully opposed
tho composition of a warliko message,
and even tho formal submission to Con
gress of tho Chilian correspondence.
There Is. nnd has been all along, concealed
criticism of what somo of the other Cabinet
officers regard as Mr. Blaine's Interference
Mr. Hnrrlson. nccordlng ton confidant of tho
President, rinds himself in the delicate posi
tion of playing into lllnino's linnds or acting
on the dictates of his own wisdom, which is to
send tho messago und correspondence without
further delay, nnd thereby invite the enmity
of Mr. Blaine and his many friends.
Tliodelav may havo all the significant and
sensational features of personal nnd political
intriguing, but there are. it must lie admitted,
real and more honest reasons why the mes
sage should not bo sent in to-morrow, and
why It may not go In for a week. The deposi
tions nro not all in from Snn 1'rnnclsco.
where the investigation of the attack on
the Baltimore's seamen from the Ameri
can standpoint luu been conducted by
Col. Remy. the Naval Judge Advocate.
It is essential to the moro perfect understand
ing of the affair which has brought about the
controversy between the two countries, thnt
the testimony of the men and ofllcors who
were concerned in tho attack, directly nnd In
directly, should bo carefully read, and the ma
terial substance of the inquiry made a basis of
nny advisory message to Congrrss thnt may bo
sent in. 'J ho Secretary of tlio Navy has
directed Capt. Schley, tho commanding officer
of tho Baltimore and Lieut McCrea. u junior
ofllcorof tho vessel, to proceed to this city, and
It is understood that they aro already on their
way to Washington. It is desired to get from
them nny details of the attack on the sailors
nt alpuiraiso which may appear to bo neces
sary, and thoy will be asked to fur
nish all information regurdlng Chili which
would bo likely to bo of valuo in
mapping out a campaign. Lieut. McCrea was
tlm ofilcer who represented tlm men of Ids
vessel during the inquiry made by the Chilian
authorities, nnd on that occasion actod as the
Interpreter. His knowledge of what tlio Chilians
really did extinct from the witnesses Is of
portineiieo iii tho present Investigation, blnco
the Chilian authorities havo represented
mo state of alTairs nnd tho mon of the
Baltimore another. McCrea wns nlso the
intelligence ofllcor of tho ship, nnd his princi
pal duty wns the furnishing of Information on
technical mntters to tlm oftlco of naval Intel
ligence. Hu Is familiar with tho country and
tin) Inngungo or the Chilians, and Is under
stood to havo brought buck usoful Inrormution
regarding tlio detenecs or Chili. Both olllcers
would be valuable additions to the temporary
Cabinet which Secretary Tracy has drawn
about him In the preparation of a form of at
tack on Chill when the timo shall come. If it
overdoes.
Mr. Clement A. Griscom. tho manager of the
International Steamship line, hns been in tho
city for several duvs, nnd has had frequent
talks with Secretary Tracy. It is un
derstood Hint nrrnngements havo been
Perfected with (IiIh comrnny for tho use of
fourof its steamers as transports In tho event
of wnr. The details of tho arrangement urn of
course kept secret, but it Is runmicd that they
call for the Incorporation Into tlio navy
for tempoinry servlco of the Pennsyl
vania. Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. The
department hns perfected arrangements for
the IncieuHOd transportation overland which
would be necessary In the ease of war. Presi
dent Roberts of the Pennsylvania Rail rend
was with the Secretary on this business early
in tlm week.
The force of monitors which It haB been con

W. R, Grace A Co. asked their house In Val
paraiso l,y cablo for the facts regarding the
rcportod chango of mind on tho part of tho
Chilian Government about tho disposition to
bo modo of tho refugees transferred from tho
American Legation to tho United Btatos
ship Yorktown. Tho firm have rocelved a
reply by cable, and Mr. Uraco said yesterday:
"Tho Government of Chill novor had any
knowledgo. officially, of tho transfer by Mr.
Egnn of the refugees from tho Legation In
Santiago to tho Yorktown, tholr transfer hav
ing been made without any official recognition
by Chill. Tliotransnctlon. however, was winked
ut, or unolUclally permitted, by thorn In defer
ence to tho desires of tho United states Gov
ernment nnd as a proof of their good will
tuwnrd tho United States.
"As Boon, however, as tho refugees were
placed on hoard the Yorktown, I apt Evans
olllclnllynotlllod tlio connnanderof the marlno
district, know ns Valparaiso, that tho refugees
wore about to be transferred by him to mer
chant steamers which make a trip along tho

"Tho commander of tho mnrlne district
merely answered ofilcinllyto theCuptaln of the

"So that it is fMuin Hint tlio Captain of the

thoy exposed themselves to the action of tho
municipal authorities nt tho different ports in
Chili where tho steamers might stop, und
wliero nnv public prosecutor might apply fur

This whole matter proves, ns strongly
ns could bo desired., that the Govern
ment of Chill is desirous of complying In every
way consistent with their powers In the prom
ises, with not onlv thn rights but with the de
sires of the United Stutes Government In any

the Sheriff and nil his deputies went outsldo of

pushed his way through the crowd, dropping j H
fierce and threatening words. Having rouohea ibbH
u good place, Mr. Goodo yelled: ; ' JH
"Will the Secretary read thn names." ' BaH
Secietnry Bellamy lookod hopelessly at the- ft "
several hundred names on tho petition and Kai
shook his head. Somebody yelled for Oooda ' BtJaal
to "let it go 1" KbB
"No. I won't let It go." stormed Oooda. "I , KB
wnnttonsk any man here if the Twentieth ' wjaH
district hns not dono its duty. (Cries of "No, ' Jbbbbbb
it hasn't"). Yes. it lias: I sny it has. and that Teaman
it is as good as any district in New York." ' Jbbbbbb
This brought a lot of hisses. Goode turned bbbbbI
white, and shuking his first in tbe air he ' iVH
yelled: J KbbH
"Smith Is not nt tho head of the delegation. f jHfl
now nor will be bo. I ask Judge Patterson. '1'ilik'Uti
who is behind this document if we did not do IbbbbbbI

A score of voices yelled "No!" and then ' bbbbbb!
Goode. with his 1W still In tho air. cried: 'XjbbbI
" I understand that several men were sent to -t flH
tho district, when Smith wus reappointed, to t; bbbbbb!
take tho district out of his hands. The die. iliH

I have been told thnt I would havo to go and i jBBH

wns referred to the Executive Com- !:.1s?bbb!
