New Wesftninster Columbian, June 4.
A\ ord reached Mr. Moresby yesterday
from Vancouver to the effect that no less
than nine persons in the Gibson family, at
Howe sound, were down with the small*
pox. The disease, it will be remembered,
was carried to the Gibsons by the man
Hyde, of Vancouver, who died about ten
days ago. Mr. Moresby proceeded to
Howe sound at once, taking with him Dr.
McGuigan, health officer of Vancouver.
There are ten persons in the family, and
all are down with the terrible disease ex
cept the old man. Fortunately the cases
are of a mild type, and none of the pa
tients are likely to succumb to the scourge.
Additional guards were placed about the
premises to warn people away, and also to
supply the wants of the family. The
house dogs were shot as a matter of pre
caution, it being quite possible for the dis
ease to be carr.ed to families in the neigh
borhood by them. Sister Frances and an
other nurse from Vancouver went up to
Howe sound today to nurse the family.

Today, but Harrison Delegates May
Try to Expedite Matters.
MINNEAPOLIS, Jure B.—The presidential
situation took a significant turn tonight.
An extended conference lasting nearly
three hours was held by the Blaine
leaders in the Colorado headquarters, and
nearly all the chief politicians ot the vari
ous state delegations were summoned into
the presence of the committee. At
the meeting there was discussed at
great length the advisability of
taking measures to bring one or
more dark horses into the field
in order to draw out the Harrison vote
and thereby effect the demoralization of
his forces and result ultimately in nomi
nating Blaine or one of the dark horses.
Several Harrison delegates from lowa
were invited in the conference and the
suggestion delicately conveyed to them
that if the entire vote of the state of lowa
was cast solidly for Allison he would
receive the vote of Delaware and
possibly other scattering votes. The lowa
delegation, however, did not receive the
suggestion with enthusiasm, and appeared
disposed to abide fully by the result of
this afternoon's conference, wherein it was
decided that Allison should not be brought
in until after the first ballot, if it should
fail of nomination.
Certain McKinley men of the Ohio dele
gation were also summoned, and the inti
mation conveyed to them that perhaps
the Blaine men initrht look favorably upon
the candidacy of McKinley if the Ohio
Harrison delegates would give him (Mc-
Kinley) their loyal support 011 the opening
ballot. This suggestion was received
with willingness, but 110 arrangement
was perfected, as the one or
two gentlemen summoued were unable to
speak authoritatively for their Harrison
colleagues of the Ohio delegation. The
Harrison delegates of several other states
were also interrogated as to their disposi
tion for furnishing a dark horse, but. the
conference finally came to a ciose without
At its conclusion it was noticeable that
the McKinley boom in some mysterious
way had received an impetus, as the gov
ernor's eligibility was freely discussed in
At 1:30 this morning ex-Governor
Foraker was hastily summoned to the
Colorado headquarters, immediately after
the adjournment of the committee on
resolutions, and is in conference with the
anti-administration leaders. Among the
wild rumors afloat is that in the event of
the probable defeat of Blaine a compromise
candidate in the person of McKinley, Al
lison or Sherman is to be sprung on the
The rise ol McKinley as an available
candidate is alarming the leaders of the
Blaine and Harrison factions. A report
is in circulation tonight that New llamp
shir, Vermont an l Connecticut are in a
combine to support McKinley. Senator
Cullom also came in for a share of the
third candidate stories. James Fairchiid,
of Boston, an enthusiastic Reel man,
made an effort this morning at a meeting
of the Massachusetts delegation to com
mit the Bay state to Heed. A motion to
that effect was mad?, but immediately a
counter-motion to adjourn went through
by almost unanimous consent, and the
lleed boom was prematurely checked.
At midnight this report was given out
from the Indiana headquarters:
We held our lines unbroken, notwithstanding
the terrific assaults made upon them today. Our
returns show 521 votes for Harrison. This does
not include contested seats. The result of the
day's wort leaves us without the loss of a singie
vote, and it confirms the accuracy of the work
already done. We are ready at any moment to
meet our opponents la a nominating ballot, but
they, fearing results, are making desperate at
tempts to postpone it
The white wings of harmony which flut
tered over the convention today were put
to flight in a tumultous scene of disorder
at the West hotel tonight. Late this aft
ernoon it ivas announced by the younuer
men that there would be a parade tonight
with Blaine banners and other insignia of
the Plumed Knight headed bv bands from
various cities. The Harrison people heard
of the programme, and although the man
agers did not advise a counter-demonstra
tion, the younger element was determined
that the president and his cause should
not be entirely lost from sight in the hila
rious Blaine demonstration. Both fac
tions turned out and marched
through the streets, and tinaliv
both headed for the hotel. There they
met and marched around in circles to the
tune of discordant ve'ls and rival shouts
for Blaine and Harrison. At the head of
the Blaine column was 3 banner carried
by an Indiana man, bearing the inscrip
tion: "If Blaine is nominated he will
carry Indiana by 10.0 X) ." Another Blaine
man carried a similar banner bearing the
still more irritaiinsr inscription- "If Harri
son is nominated he wili lose Indiana by
20,'VJ0." The banners excited the ire of
the i.ery young Harrison men from In
diana. and a rush was made. Before the
Blaine people ha l an opportunity to de
fend the colors the two banners were torn
down and pulled to pieces. Instantly the
Biaine people retaliated by an onslaught
on the Harrison forces, and banners bear
ing a portrait of the president and
inscriptions certifying to his political
grandeur was also palled down, torn to
pieces and trampled under foot. This, of
course, provoked bad leeiiug, and for a
time it seemed as though there wou'd l>e a
general tight. There was considerable
scu»Ji:n<r; nun jostled aeair.st the marble
walls, and ther" were two or three fistio
encounters of short duration, hut the riot
which tor a time was threatened was hap
piiy averted. For two hours the hot
headed rival factions thronged the hotel
rotunda and made it impossible for guests
to pass, but shortly after 10 o'clock the
mob dispersed without personal damage
to anybody, but after having created a
great deal of serious discord in the ranks
of the Republican party, particularly of
the rival factions in the Hoosier state.
INCIDENTS OF THE DAY.
EnthuMaim Disappearing, and the Fac
tion* (.citing Down to Hard Wurk.
MINNEAPOLIS, June 8. —The seeker after
accurate information as to the relative
standing of the two prominent candidates
tonight is compelled to discard as extrava
gant and misleading the figures issued
from the headquarters of each, and a care
ful analys.s of the expressed preferences of
all the delegations, together with a classi
fication of all the uncommitted delegates,
shows that each of the candidates is from
twenty-live to fifty votes short of a nom
ination. The balance of power, if a ballot
had been taken today, would have been
found to be with General Alger. It can
safely be asserted that in the past
quarter of a century there has
never been a convention where
there was such a rapid subsidence of en
thusiasm as is noticeable here on the eve
of the critical day which should have de
cided the contest. The delay in reaching
a ballot has caused every faction to realize
that the citadel of the opposition is not to
be carried by assault after all, and they
now await the result of the ballot. Those
who but twenty-four hours since were
hilariously parading the streets are now
walking dejectedly to and fro and wonder
ing how matters are going to end. The
loyal toot of the horn and the triumphant
blast of the bugle and the inspiring inusio
of bands that buoyed enthusiasm have
almost departed from the contest. There
is evidence of consciousness on the
part of the average layman that he
is something of a puppet in
this battle for political mastery, and the
reflection is not gratifying to the sovereign
American elector, so that tonight it is not
uncommon to see, quietly conversing to
gether, a couple of privates who but a day
or two ago were arrayed in opposition and
fiercely combatting for presidential prefer
ences. As thej- compare notes, each one
finds that the other does not know much
about the mysterious motives and un
fathomable purposes of the gentlemen who
are the ruling spirits of his particular
The diplomatic triumphs of the Blain*
element in securing control of the organi
zation of the convention and the commit*
tees which are to play such an important
part in the result, is the sensation of the
day. No one, not even the leader of the
Harrison forces, appears to know exactly
when the conspiracy burst or how it was
carried into execution, but it forces itself
upon every man that there is a deep mo
tive. and that the plans of the Blain*
leaders have been cautiously laid. Th«
most is made of the .advantage of the situ
ation by the constant declaration of the
Blaine managers that as they have con
trol ot the convention they will be able to
control the nomination.
The committee on credentials is pro*
ceedinj* slowly, and is evidently not in
tending to make a report until an oppor
tunity is afforded to judge of the impor
tance which their recommendations may
have in determining the result of the con
vention. Of the contests disposed of by
this committee, I'iaine delegates were
s»ated in every instance. It is a possi
bility that the committee on credentials
may not be ready to report by tomorrow,
ancl if this should be the case there is
pretty sure to be a row in the convention
when the chairman submits a request for
further delay. The Harrison leaders are
much irritated over the Blaine policy of
delay, and appear determined to force a
ballot as soon as possible. It is stated
tonight that when the committee on cre
dentials makes a partial report tomorrow,
as it probaoly will, Harrison delegates
will move to adjourn tor an hour or two,
with instructions to the committee to
wind up business and report at that tiuje.
This may aflord an opportunity for the
first direct test between the two factions.
The Harrison people claim to have
gained ground in securing a delegate or
two today in Oregon, and say they have
won back a couple of Texes delegates who
yesterday went over to Biaine. The Blaine
managers claim gains in Kansas, Illinois
and Rhode Island, besides several other
states which they fail to mention.
The leaders of the Blaine faction tonight
are contemplating a movement which.is
very bold and, if carried out, will be a
farewell greeting to the short-lived har
mony and good feeling of the past twenty
lour hours, whatever the effect may lie in
controlling the nomination. They have
agents selecting from the list of delegates
and alternates those who are otiicers under
the Harrison administration. They ex
pect to compile a liit and add thereto the
names of administration officeholders on
the ground as helpers to etlect the renom
lnation of the president and who are not
delegates to the convention. The list will
be given out as an indication of the per
nicious example being set by Harrison
and of the effort of the administration to
perpetuate itself in power. The Blaine
managers also insist that ex-Senator In
galls has been promised the Prussian com
mission recently vacated.
The Blaine people state this evening
that it has not yet been decided that the
name of their candidate will be presented
to the convention at all. It may be found
advisable to vote for him without the
formality of a nomination, but in case it
