tnre Clurh.on and (tuny tn Conference,
WAsntxnTON. May 23. It Is possible tlmttlio
plan "' "10 anti-Harrison llepubllcnns to
rtnmro'!e tlie Minneapolis Convent Inn for
fll.ilno may not lo carried out success
fully tut bo far ns Washington politi
cians mo concerned tlio stnmpedo lias
already begun. When tlio fact wns an
nounced in despatches to Tun Sun moro
than ten days nco. or immediately after
tho conference between Camoron. Quay,
piatt. and othors. that Iltnlito wan tlio
nun upon whom tho opposition llepubllcnns
would unite. It was conornlly thought that
Ilr. Elaine would himself make this plan Im
poislblo by declining to allow himself tu bo
considered a. candidate. It was snld that ho
would write another lettor, withdrawing abso
lutely and unconditionally from the contest,
and statins that he would not accopttho nomi
nation, even if it was made by acclamation.
Mr. Blaine has not written that lettor, and it
Is now thought qulto unlikely that he will
write It. In fact. If tho word of an Influential
and honorable Hopubllcan Benntor Is to bo be
llevod. Mr. Dlalne has Bald within the past few
days that he feola it entirely unnecessary for
him Jo fako any action with record to
tho coming Minneapolis Convontlon. lie said
In tho lettor to Mr. Clurkson that his name will
not (so before the Convention, and It will not
with his consont. Heconsldors that he has
tald all that it is nocessnry to fay. and if his
friends Insist on nominating him or attempt
ing to do so. It must bo at their own risk.
Tills attitude of Mr. Blnlno Is entirely satis
factory to tho antl-Hnrrison men, and they foel
confident of being able to conduct matter to
sultthemsolves. If Mr. Blnlno will only main
tain his proeont olfoctlvo silence.
Tho statement thnt Mr. Illulno hns thus,
negatively at least, traced himself in tho
hands of his friends, finds continua
tion in tho fact tlmt Mrs. Blaino
has also, within the last few days,
assorted with the utmost emphasis
tlmt Mr. Dlnlno is not under any obligations to
tho rrosidont, so far us politics is concerned,
nnd that he will not do nnythtng more than he
has already donoto prevent his friends from
attempting to brine about IiIb nomination.
This repoit of Mrs. Blaine's announcement Is
not henrsay. !ut is an absoluto fact.
Senator (juuy Intended to leave Washington
to-morrow for his homo In Beaver, Fa., to re
main until Monday, and then return to Wash
ington for a duy or two beforo jolnlnc his col
lcacucsof tho Senate and other Washington
Republicans in their journoy to Minneapolis.
A party of Senators Is now being mado
up to make the trip together, ami it
la a somewhat noticeable. fact that
almost every one of them is opposed to Harri
son's nomination. Mr. (,'uuy will leave tho
city with the assurance, convoyed to him di
rectly, that Mr. Illuine will not rofUBO to accopt
tho flora Inat iou if it comes to him as tiio unan
imous sentiment of the Itepuhltcans as
semble J In convontlon at Mlnneaiiolts.
Nothing lias hwn talked of In Washington
hut tho wondorful ontluislasm that hns ttecn
moused ly tho knowledge that Bialno may ho

at. lie piitilleanK now begin to aeei.pt It as an
KSKUreil fact that .Mr. Harrison will meet with
it relentless and ovorpowttrlng opposition
when his managers nrrlvo at Minneapolis.
Men who ten days ngo laughed at tho idea of
I Blaino allowing his name to bu iihciI now
admit that It looks ax though ho was tho most
ava'.lublo und likely candidate.

Malno friends did not reveal. The Judge

Near the ontranco to the ferry a small man
approached Mr. Blaino and said something
about a coupe1. Tho Secretary waved him
away. The man was portlstont und a second

repulsed and again he returned. Fiually Mr.
Blaine, who was plainly annoyed, turned
around toward him and said:
"You are a very impertinent fellow, sir."
Instantly the little man turned and hurried
up to the roporters. Ho was weeping und
wringing his hands.

I)Nrox, May 2.'!. It was reportod to-day
thnt Thomas O'Brion, the notorious bunco
Blearer who was extradited from England to
New York, nnd who escaped from tho custody
of omcers In thnt State, nftor bolnc convicted
and sentenced to Stato prison, hnd been nr
rostod. Tho roport was, tutor, confirmed. Ho
was captured at Havro whllo leaving tho
stenmor Marseille, which left Now Orleans on
May 1 for Havro and Antwerp. Thoiigltlvo
tried to loavo tho steamer with tho cargo.whon
ho woe detectod and captured. Tho French
pollco woro nn tho lookout for htm. and ono ot
their best dotecllvcs was watching nt tho
O'Brien appears to hnve waltod on board
until nil was quiet beforo attempting to go
ashoro. Ho tried to leave In tho confusion
nttnndlng tho removal oftho cargo, and would
have escaped hut for tho fact that a watch had
hron left nt the stoamor with Instructions to
keep n close lookout for him. It Is Bald thnt
on the way ovorsomo of O'Brien's actions led
tho crow to suspoct thnt thoy had un escaped
criminal of somo 'importance on board, and
u hint was nlvon to tho pollco at Havro upon
tho arrival of tho vessel.
O'Brien was greatly taken aback by Ills cap
ture, nnd Inquired whothor tho new extradi
tion treaty botween Franco and tho United
Statos, ot which It appears ho knew some
thing, had yet gono Into olToer. The French
officers Informed O'Brien thnt tho treaty hnd
not been approvod. O'Brien was very much
rolleved. Upon being taken to Police Hood
quartors ho was at once subjected to tho an
thropometrics! system ot measurement tn
order that. If he escaped again, he might bo
road I ly recognized In France. O'Brien sub
mitted with good grace, after at first protest
ing that nn American cltir.cn should not bo
subjected to the indignity of having his toe
nulls measured and calves Inspected.
The French pollen wero surprised at his
gentlemanly appearance and lino physique,
and said he was far superlot In ovury way to
the Knu'llsh criminals who fell occasionally
Into the hands ot the Havre authorities. Apart
from taking tho prisoner's measurement and
kcoping linn in most vigilant charge, thoy
treat oi I him with overy consideration. O'Brien
will have nn opportunity, it Is said, to light
against extradition, and as soon ns ho was ar
rested ho ino. ulrod about getting counsel. Tho
proceedings fur his oxtinditlon will have to bo
under tho present French treaty, which Is
milt" rostrictod In Its terms as compnred with
tne treaty negotiated by Mr. Whlteluw Held,
nnd which has not been approved in America.
Soon after O'Brien's escape an account of tho
escape and of the reward offered for hln cap
ture was received in English. French, and
other continental ports. The English nnd
French pollco have since heon on tlio qui vivo
for the man. and steamers arriving nt Liver
pool. Havre, and other places have Loen care
o'nr.IF.N AOAIS ESrATER.
.nrVr-O'ISrlen has succeeded In making his
escape from tho Havre police, and Is agnin at
large. The pollco are conducting nn nctlvo
search for him. und the vessels In the harbor
aie closely watched. Notice hns also been
telegraphed to all the udiolniuc towns.
There is little doubt that a companion of tho
bunco stcerer. O'Brien, bribed the detectives
who had chargo of O'Brien to let him iMnw.ijr.
(inicers from Sctland Yard were brep'riim to
goto Havro to Identify O'Brien when tho news
arrivod that ho hud escaped. Tho commissary
of pollco at Havro Is greatly stlnodup on
account of O'Brien having cot away, nnd ho
lias not only cnlloil all his subordinates to
account, but has telegraphed to overy port in
Fronce a doscrlptlon of tho mnn.
A Havre despatch fnys Jt Is .certain that
O'Brien hat not got nwav on nny of tho rail
way trains, and tho police thore helUrve that he
must Imvu gono on board a steamer or other
vessel just starting for n port nh.nc tho coa&t
or for Great Britain. Tho French police think
that be will try to mako Ills way to Bordeaux,
and thence to South America. The police In
London and other porta are keeping u careful
watch for the fugitive.
Tho police of Oravesend. Dover, and rtctee.
fives from Scotland Yard nro out to-night
watching for O'Brien, who Is expected to land
on tho English const within tho next twenty
four hours. Tho American Legation has made
special efforts to secure his capture, nnd it Is
safe to say that O'Brion cannot lind anywhero
on the southern coast of F'nclnndorat any
considerable poit In tho t'nited Kingdom
without beins arrested immediately, Late
this afternoon Police Inspector llohorts of
Oravesend and Sergeant Nowland of Sootlnnd
lard went out on a special steam launch and
stoppe,! and boarded tho Mosagerlos steamer
Fibre on which, It was thought. O'Brien had
Med from Franco. Thoy wont through every
part of the steamer from stem to stern, but
found no trace of the fugitive. A description
of O'Brien has been sent to evory coast town In
No notification of thecnptiiro of O'Brien by
the French police was received by olthor Su
perintendent Byrnes or Chief Inspector Steers
yesterday. Superintendent Dimes wus skep
tical nboutthe prisoner's Identity.
"There's m.thing gentlemanly nltout O'Bri
en's appeaiuuce." said Mr. Bvrnes. "He is not
oven n clever bunco man, but remlnib. mo
moro of a brutal highwayman by his method'.
Tho clever man In the AH any trumnctlon was
Post. O'Brien's nartnor. O'Brien simply occu
pied the position of assistant or laborer. If
they really did have hlm. and let him escape. I
can only say that they and theomcer who al
lowed him to escape hero ought to be con
demned to get together in a community bv
themselves, the only protection to which would
bo their own imllciug.
Sergosnt Blr-I. who was In chnri,'o of tho
Detoctlvo Bureau, laughed at the story of
O Brien's .capture and escape, rubbed his
liandH gleo'ully. and remarked: "And tho
French detectives are the best In the world I
ell. we get along very nicely over hor-."
At the tlmo of his escape O'Brien whs under
routence of ten years for robbing, by means of
tlio conlldoneo came.n xuun named Peek, in
Albany, or 1IUK!0. He was tnknn to L'tlca on
a writ of habeas corpus, and was remanded
back to prison, hooper Buck of Dsnnemora
Prison, who had hlm In charge, let hlm go
whoro ho pleased with Don Mlnchln, n no
torious bunco stoeror, nnd Dnvld A. Dlshler. a
local Lli.vi.hmd politician of Utlcn. Thorosult
was that tlio convict got away very easily, nd
iHsnldto have had fully twonty-four hours'
f tint ou his way to llborty when the alarm was
