Tlio readers would nothavo known it for tho
Fame town In tho nltornoon. whon tho circus
came. Whit Is mount by tho circus Is tho
host of mon who nrrlved to tnko pnrt In to
morrow's Hepuhllonn Convention. It may bo
a lit 1 1 o promaturo to call it n cirrus, but it bad
precisely the samo effect on tho town as a
circus would havo had. nnd before tho reador
llnlshes reading an account of tho afternoon's
developments ho may Imblbo tho idea that
thoro is at least u possibility of clreus-llko
proceedings In to-morrow's progrummo.
Tho correspondent of Thk Sun kuow onouch
to gut on tho hill behind tho town In order to
view tho Heldorborg Mountains. It Is a mat
tor of tradition In Albany that if n man Is
going into n businoss venture, or a dual or
matrimony, ho can soo beforehand just how
' tho nffalr will turn out by looking at
tho Holderbergs. If they nro screno
nnd raise their emornld sides above a horizon
of nmothyst, and point to a zenith of brilliant
light, tho safo rule Is to sign tlio papers or buy
the rlugs, or uso real bullets, such as aro now
discarded at. Antwerp. But If tho mountains
nro threatening, tho action of liror Itabblt,
who " laid low." Is always In ordor.
Leaving tho sloepy city, tho reporter of The
Hun mountod a horsoat tho odcoof tho park
aud rodo out to whero a clear view of tho
Dutchmen's Hills could bo obtained. Tho
Mzht was fearsome. Not one outline of a hill
was to bo seen. Instend. tho clouds hung low
upon tho earth nnd formed a threatening,
angry gray mound wheio the hills Bhould
havo been. Trouble was therefore the suro
prophecy for the ltepubllcans, and the report
er's horse was spurred back to the city. Its
wholo nppenranco had changeJ. Not a woman
f was to be seen, nnd yet the Idio elorks In tho
fhopplng stores looked out upon stroots that
were crowded. Tho porsons who loimodthe
multltudo wero mainly strangers, nil In black
suits and high silk hats, for it is a peculiarity
of tho Republican politicians that thoy
all try t" lnok us much llkn clergymen
as possible, and nlwnj.s begin their fmivoii
tlons with prayer, followed UMinlly by a hymn
bysomo local band of camp mooting Hutigstors.
Hut they crowded tho bars and drovn tlio bar
totiderH frantle with calls for metropolitan
i Martini cocktails und hayseod mixtures or gin
and tansy, all of which wore equally foreign to
Albany, whoso people havo stuck to plain old
Holland juniper julco for over two centuries.
Tlio crowd was so great that it tilled tho
Delaran. tho Konmoro, Keulor'f, the Stnnwix.
and even the Tub on Htnto street From New
lork had eomo tho great political chief of the
party, nx-Scnulor 1'iutt, in a train that carried
uc.irly all tho uetivo llepubllealis of New Vork,

The general Impression wns that tho nwful
blunder made by Mr. Willis was at tho Instiga
tion of tho rrosidont. on the advice of Messrs.
Klklns and Tracy. The fnct that Willis,
when ho rratizod his error, at onco consulted
Henator lllscook to Bt him out of tho
tangle, seemed to show that tho senior
Henator had something to do with tho
lll-udvised plot It grow to a laughnblo situ
ation ns tho night waxod older. Tho nntt
Harrison men sported with Willis till ho
could scarcely tell what to do. They egged
him on to insist on pressing for nu in
structed delegation. Thoy utmost bogged
him to stick tci his plan, they weio so
willing to lot tho I'resldont's popularity
stand thotest of a vote In the Convention to
morrow. Willis, acting on his Instructions
from Washington, said that ho was nulto ready
to proceed. Tlio wiser frlonds of tho 1'resldent

in tho State, strongly advised against iv lino

on tho airival ol .vir. Willis it was quickly
known that ho did not propose to tamely sub
mit to tho programme which has boon out
lined for to-morrow's proceedings. Henrdeied
placards, reading: "Headiiuaiters of the Har
rison Delegation. Kings County." nnd to-night
tho placards Haunt dolhinco to tlio ltepubli
eaiis who havo doclarcd all along that whllo
tho Couvontion would endorse tlio Harrison
Administration It would refuse to Instruct tho
national delegatus of the State in Ids favor.
Mr. Willis told Tut Hpn reporter exactly what
ho proposed to do. Ho said:
" I did not eomo horo to submit to any cut
and driod programme, and I earnestly assure
you that wo mean light. I have already Issued
Invitations to all tho delegates from Kings to
hold a caucus In tho Konmore nt It) o'clock to
morrow moining. We proposo to submit, for
the consideration of tho caucus, a resolution
calling upon tho Convention to Instruct tho
delegate., to vote for Harrison at Minneapolis.
Wo will also mako a light to elect uv-Mayor
Fredorick A. Scliroederof Ilrooklyn n delegato
at large. In whoso place? Ah, 1 cannot suy
as tot lint just now."
Mr. Willis snid that he was not taking this
step blindly. He admitted that ho was pro
ceeding on tl.o linos laid down by "wise and
eminent men associated with the Administra
tion." It was positively assorted hvn friend
of Mr, Willis that tho moving spirits behind
him aro Secretary Tiacy and Secretary l-.lklns,
As Mr. Willis hnsn following of slxty-ono del
cgates nnd Mr. Nathan nineteen dolegatos, tho
action of tho Naval tinker In calling thocaucus
fortho purpose of adopting resolutions to In
struct for Hurrlson will force Mr, Nathan
to eomo out frankly and declare where ho
stands. Closo friends of Mr. Nathan, who
talked with him to-day. say that ho has been
all along for Harrison, but ho doubts tho nb.ll
ityof .Mr. Willis nnd Ills friends to force tho
Convention to instruot for tho Prosldent. Mr.
Willis said later that ho was determined to seo
It ho could not obtain aid from tho counties
outsido of Kings. Ho has his men out button
holing tho delegatoB from all over the State,
asking them to join his cuueus In behalf of
the Prosldent to-morrow.
"Whether I securooutsldn support or not."
snid Mr. Willis. "It will make no difference. I
t-lmll go right nhead In my light to have tho
Convention Instruct for Harrison."
Tin. situation is nil the moro aggravated by
tlio open declarations that should Mr. Nathan
decline to vote for tho Willis resolutions hn
will in rrmovoil from his placo a Internal
Kovonuu Colloctor. The Harrison Administra
tion lines not proposo to mince matters with
Mr. Nithnn. Secretary Truoy for years has
been violently opposed to any olevation ol

Tnr.NTON. April 27. There wns some lively
quarrelling among tho Republicans who hold
their State Convention in Taylor's Gjiorn
Houso to-day to appoint delegates to tho Na
tional Republican Convention. On tho sur
face there w.vs a bravo nnd cheerful show of
harmony and enthusiasm, but beneath it was
n scene of ill-feollnc and dlsordor. Tho fool
ing developed was so intensely bitter that It
looks ns if thoy will not go into tho campaign
shoulder to shouldor. and it sooms that a vig
orous campaign will bo impossible.
Just as tho thontro was ringing with choers
for Poter F. Wansor, who recontly defeated
Allan F. MoDormott for Mayor of Jersoyf'ity,
the membors oft ho State Executive Committee
resigned in a body, not because they wanted
to, as it was mndo to appear, but because they
whio forced to by th rank and lllonf the party,
who tor yonts have been led to dlsnster by
thorn. The wholesale resignation of the com
mittee was acceptod on tho instnut. Theio
were other disturbing features. A new Statu
Committee w.is formed. Essex and lltldsnn
counties received two membors each, whllo
tliu other counties got only one member euch.

"Although tho fund rnquirad for this monu- Si
mental tomb is largo," ho said, "it was do-
cidod to lay tho corner stone to-day In tho J)
conlldont belief that this patriotic work once S
begun will never bo allowed to stop until com- art
pleted. Tho present movement organized for v
the purposoof semiring tho required (untile- .?'
gnn its labors on March 21. The llrst commit- :i'
tco formed in Now York began Its work on fa
March 2r. Generous Brooklyn came forward j'J
cheerfully tndlvldo tho burden and sharo in fS
tlio honor. Now thoro are 210 committees at If

persoiiK I havo great satisfaction in nn- Jj
nounclngto you that tho total o subsciip- ' y
tlons recolvntl up to I his morning, as the ft
result of about four weeks' work, is J202.HOO. ll
Tho work of obtaining subsciiptlon will ba "'
continued until overy compnny, llrm, nnd In-
dividual has had an opportunity to subscribe. ;v
While some gennrous subscriptions will bo re- n
vnived from other cities, the people of tha 'J
nation havo seemed to say to .Vew York: 'You t
have secured tho honor of entombing within I
your borders tho nshes of Americas groat f
captain: the superb memorial to bo reared I
will bo tho chief oriiuiiint of your city. I'll- )
grimaces will bo inndo from all quarters ;i
ot tho globe to visit that Meoceyu. You t
aro the motropolls und the monled con- Li
tro: you must unnldeil hulld the structure.' I
New York has accepted the challenge anil will I
mako good hor word. While this structure . m
will bo thoroughly national In its character tu,
nml purpose. It will stand in hlstorv as a '
trlbiito of tho greatest of American cities to 9
the greatest of American soldiorB." , i J

In the corner stono. Then I'resluent Harrises f
nicked up tlio gold trowel which huperlB- Jf-
teiuleiit of Hulldlngs Hrndy had furnished nnd V!l
walked over to tho block of granite. The '-'a
masons spread tho mortar under tho stone ft 1
and the President stooped to smooth It with 'i
his gold trowel. Then tho pulley ropes were ,cjl
lowered nnd tho great stono sank into its rest- Vm
Ing place. A ehnor wnt up from thocrovvd, .li
ami nu old soldier standing by the i'ro-ldc nt I J
handed lilm a big bouquet of roses, which ho "mM
took buck with him to the hotel. "U
