A conflict be tween the two factions led by Chair man I>oran. of the state committee, and Mayor Ames, of Minneapolis, was at one precipitated by IVran propos ing Kugcne M.

After a sharp <wtest orer the unit rule w3aon was elected bv a vote of JOT to IK, and thus in one short, -harp struggle was decided the only que-bon to provoke serious dis cussion in the convention. Wilson spoke briefly, declaring that the one thing essential to Minnesota Demo cracy was harmonious loyalty to the delegation finally selected' to go to St. Lmus. The party in Minnesota ha been growing stronger since it so nearlr carried two years ago. an.l with harmony il can carry this fall. The general "sentiment of Minne-ota Democrats is in fa Tor of the nomina- ' tion of l"Tesideht Cleveland. Their is no question but that tbe great major ity of people of this State irrespec tive of politics are in favor of a large reduction of the iniquitous war tariff. The appointment of tbe usual commit tees was followed by a rece-s. uxt or policy. The RepnMlems are Esdeavoriag to Map Out a Tariff Course. W»»His«Tf». May 17.—At a se--ion of the Republican caucus i-ommiltee last night the tariff I till was the subject of engrossing interest. It was the understanding that if the committee was able to come to an agreement upon the proposition nude t>v Mills looking to a vote on the tariff bill and the substitute which he expects the Republicans to offer, a caucus should be called to formally ratify its a.-lion The conference, however, revealed the fact that there wa« considerable differ ence among the xiemhera. not so much as to the Mills profHxition as to the substitute bill to be offe»-d bv the lleputilican* for the Mills bill. "From the tone of discussion it appeared that that the majority of the members ■night be brought to favor the inclusion of free sugar in any proposition that may be advanced by "them. The --ugar bounty idea also had some adherents. The committee adjourned without is-uing a call for nnv caucus, but the members were instructed to request the state delegations to hold a confer ence and try to agree among them selves upon what they might reenrd as the liest line of action. When this has been done the caucus committee w ill endeavor to reconcile the various propositions taken by the state delega tions and adopt a settled policy in the treatment of tile matter.
