of the Ohlouu The Conditions that
May Bring About Ilia Nomination.
A l'ronouiiced Free Sill or Man.
In the event that a free tilt cr candidate
is selected at the Chicago convention, w inch
now seems as certain us sunrise and sun
set, tne candidate for Vice President may
be Jolm It. McLean.
The rait lias not been generally known,
bulls neiertheless bald to beau actuality,
that tlie rrieuds of Sir. McLean more tlian
two months ago effected a thorough or
ganization, Willi ramifications iu every
section of the country, haling for its pur
lse the securing of second place for the
Benllenian in rtot interests they labored.
During this period a va6t ainountof care
ful and systematic work has becu isir
rormed, with the result that a large uum
ber of delegates have been pledged to the
candidacy orMr. McLean, even whereno in
structions as to t he head or the ticket hai c
been given by the State coiiienllons. As
an Illustration, all or the delegates cImpcd
to represent the State or Slalnc at the
gathering held last week- are raid to be
favorable to the aspirations of lLo Ohio
MATTER OF l'OUCr.
The selection of Sir. SIcLcan as the
Vice-Presidential candidate is said to be
Dot much a matter of cxiicdiency nor
policy. For thirty years he has been an
active and persistent advocate of free
coinage, taking rank as a pioneer In that
movement, so far as recent years arc
concerned. Through his tiaicr-tl.c Cin
cinnati Enquirer be has waged continual
warfare for the while metal, with the re
mit that the Democratic party iu Ohio has
been completely com ertcd.
The claim is made that in the state con
vtntion uhlcli assembles this week there
will not tic one hundred delegates who favor
the gold standard.
SIucli credit Is given to Sir. SIcLean for
having assisted in dividing the representa
tion from hisoivn State in theUnited States
Fcnatc during the past three decades, so
that John Sherman has never had a Ec
It Is considered to be a practical neces
sity that the Vice Presidential nomination
should come from the same Slate that rur
n.shcf the head of the republican- ticket.
It will bea sort of counter-irntantand ma
terially reduce the tidal wave of ballots
that usually attends the selection of a fn
lorite son. and which gave Indiana to
Harrison, although he had berore been
snowed underas a gubernatorial candidate.
On the supposition that Mr. Holes, of
Jowa. will be the nominee in the eientof
free sllier control at Chicago, the argument
is advanced that the selection of Mr. Mc
Lean as a running mate would be esje
cially opportune and appropriate. It would
be a direct ous'aught upon the two old cita
dels and strongholds of Republicanism.
Iowa and Ohio have always been depended
upon in a Presidential year to roll up phe
nomenal majorities for tie Republlcanelect
ors. and any considerable curtailment of
these majorities would be a victory, cien
K the States did not actually declare for
the Democratic candidates.
In addition to everything eUe, Mr- Mc
Lean is a man or great wealth, and is In a
position to contribute liberally toward tne
prosecution of a ugorous campaign. His
personal organ and machine in Ohio would
render Invaluable assistance and make
material headway against the 63,000
plurality whicii SIcKinley rccelied at his
last election to the goi ernorship. In fact,
Mr- McLean would be regarded ab a lery
suitable offset to the selection of Mr.
llobart, a coriHiratlon man and million
aire, by the Republicans.
The dual residence of "Sir. SIcLcan would
cut no particular figure in the case. Al
though making this city his home, and
possessing here large property interests,
he has at the same time maintained a lot
lng residence in Ohio, and it is said to re a
practical certainty that lie will be chosen as

SENATOR SIORGAN'S DOUBT.
There Is probably no man In Washington
who has taken a dceiicr Interest In the
achievement or Cuban independence than
Senator Slorgan. He has rrom first to
last advocated the adoption by Congress
of the most extreme measures looking to
rorcihle intervention. When told of thcex
pected communication rrom Gen. Lee,
which would be or such liiiortaut conse
quences to Cuba, Spain and the United
States, Senator Slorgan said
"While not undertaking to deny that
such statements have been forwarded l"
Gen. I.ce, I am much Inclined to doubt
the information. Iu the first place, I do
not think that Gen. Lee has yet had time
to make an accurate estimate of the situa
tion, -which he undoubtedly would make
before recommending the iwsitlve grave
action which hels said to have recommended.
I doubt the authenticity of the report for a
more Important reason.
"President Cleveland cannot now In
terfered Cuban affairs ! any way, except
to recognise the lelhgcrency of the parties
For him to intenene, as It is said he Is
likely to do. would be a violation of the
law goicrning such matters. He can make
a demand for the release of all American
prisoners, but he has no power, under
existing law, to enforce his demand should
the Spanish government see fit to refuse It.
For lilra to attempt to enforce his demand
would unquestionably bring on war, and
the power to declare war rests in Congress
Senator Morgan called pirticular atten
tion to the fact that he sought in the clos
ing hours of the session to secure some ad
ditional protection ror thosj American cit
izens who werecanturedon board the Com
petitor, and Introduced a resolution giv
ing the President extraordinary powers
during the Congressional Interim. This res
olution was antagonize! by the friends of
the Administration, who thus defeated that
which was Intended for their own good.
THE AUTHORITY GIVEN.
Senator Slorgan called attention to sec
tion 21,01 or the Revised Statutes, which
errectually ties the hanjs of the President
iu the absence of oJch exceptional legisla
tion us he proposed Just prior to adjojru
ineiil. The section is as follows:
"Whenever it is made known to the
President that any citizen of the United
Suites ii.is been unjustly deprived of his
liberty by or under the authority of any
foreign goiernmeut, it shall be the duty of
lhe-1'residtnt forthwith to demand or that
government the reasons of such Imprison
ment.; and If It appears to be wrongful
and In ilokition of the rights of American
citizenship, the President shall forthwith
demand the release of such citizen, and If
the release so demanded is unreasonably de
layed or refused, the President shall use
such means, not amounting to acts of war,
as he may think necessary and proper to
obtain or effectuate the release; nnd all the
facts and proceedings relative thereto shall
as soon as practlcablebe communicated by
the President to Congress."
Senator SIcrgan Eays that the claue
"not amounting to acts ot war" completely
ties the hands of the President. The only
action liosssblc previous to the reassembling
or Congress, he says, would be the recogni
tion or belligerency, and this would be
equally beneficial to both sides. There
can be no forcible Intervention without the.
approval or Congress, no matter what the
recommendations or General Lee may or
may not be. Even armed force cannot now
be employed to prevent the execution of
those taken on the Competitor, and recog
nized as American citizens. Senator Slor
gan made a deterpilncd right to give the
President Fome latitude in the matter, but

LETTER H TOO LUTE
General Opinion of Mr. Whit
ney's "Straddle" Epistle.
CASE LIKE CLEVELAND'S
It Is Not Believed That It Will Stem
the Free Mlver Tide ut Chicago.
The Majority of tlic'Delei'tet.Hae
Been Instructed to Votuforu White
The letter ot ex-Secretary Whitney, print
ed iu The Slorumg Times today, lsregarded
by Democrats here as being in the nature
or a compromise tendered the free sliver
wiug of the Democratic party.
Mr. Whitney is understood as receding
from the single gold standard attitude as
sumed by President Cleieland In his recent
interview and ravoring a straddle on "In
ternational bimetallism," &uch as was con
templated by Mr McKlnley and his man
agers. For weeks it Ins beeu conceded that the
free silver element will control the Chi
cago convention not only by a ma.o.-lty,
but by a more than two-thirds vote, thus
insuring the naming of an out-and-out
silver candidate to stand upon a free coin
Ai the eleventh hour, after three-fourths
or the delegates to the approaching cumeh
tion had been seleited and arter Mr. Cleie
land had issued a pn clamatloa declaring in
favor or gold moiiometallm, without a
single redeeming sop to the disaffected
factions or the party, Mr. Whituey Is per
suaded to forego an European trip and step
into the breath with an olive branch of
THE OLD DECLARATION.
The cllve branch extended by Mr. Whitney
is the same eld diclarallon regarding in
ternational bimetallism that has appeared
in the platform or the domluant political
parlies for many national campaigns. It
means nothing, it Is said, and is on the al
leged principle cf homeopathic remedies
w hlcli are said to do harm, even if they do
In short. Sir- Whituey hasbeen selected to
head a moiement imei.ded to prevent sil
ler supremacy at the Chicago conienttoii,
and, railing iu the attempt, to offer bime
tallism as a harmonizing compromise.
Tills lsregarded a"themeatm the cocoanut
to far as Sir. Whitney's letter is concerned.
Sir. Whitney will receive the earnest sup
jiorl or every prominent Tcderal office
holder, beginning with the President.
Tlie first practical move In that direction
made here has been to secure a list of
all the delegatc-elect to the Chicago cou
icntlon. Slore than two-thirds ot these
hai e been chosen. All the delegates chosen
who are either Instructed ror sliver or are
believed to incline to silver, will at once
be communicated with Iiersonally.
Thcdelegatlons for weeks past have been
receiving "sound money" literature from
the New York and Boston Reform Clubs,
but they will now. It Is asserted, be so
licited by letter. Efforts will also be made
to ascertain their standing in their com
munities, and w hat influence, if aiif , of a
local or national nature, can be brought
to bear upou them, to change the'r views
on the money question.
To this end prominent bankers and
merchants In the communities in which
the delegates reside will be written to
for information, and when In hand this
information, with any political pressure
that can be brought from their fellow
Democrats, Iccally or nationally, will be
utilized lu the ihrection of the well-kuown
views of the administration.
BEGUN TOO LATE.
General comment continues to the samj?
efefct as heretofore, that the President
and ex-Sccre(ary Whitney have begun their
campaign -too late. They are locking the
stable door after the horse has been stolen.
The innuence of the administration Is
figjred at the next thing to nothing. It
is pointed out that those standing for the
views ot the administration have been
beaten at eiery turn. Secretary Carlisle
tried to save Kentucky, but only one dis
trict in the State pronounced for gold.
Senator Brlce has been completely routed
In Ohio, and the State convention, which
meets tomorrow, will be almost unanimous
for free silver.
Sec re tary Smith took thestump In Georgia
until he lost hlstemperandex-SpeakerCrisp
lost his -voice; but the result was an over
whelming administration defeat.
Secretary Herbert could not control Iris
own State of Alabama. Nebraska slipped
away from Secretary Slorton. Attorney
General Harmon will noteveu try to stem
the tide in Ohio.
Altogether, the efforts of the administra
tion looking to the continued anchoring of
the Democratic party1 on a sound-iroaey
basis has had about the same effect as turn-
Jtomarknblc, Hut True.
We have laid aside r. r today twenty-five
fine custdii-madp suits, made by lending
merchant talh rs. which we will sell at

The advance guard or the Boles boom put
In an appearance early this morning la the,
Iierson of Editor Samuel E. Brewster of
Creston, la., and a Boles delegate toCbicago.
Tbisarternoon he was Joined by Secretary
Walsh and other Hawkcye State Demo
crats. It did not take Editor Brewster very long-,
however, to reach the conclusion
that there was no earthly hope of
his candidate receiving the indorsement of
the convention; in fact, he was plainly told
t bat while the leaders of thellhuois machine
had nothing against Horace Boies, yet it
was not In the program to give eeu a quasi
indorsement to any candidate.
The entire Illinois delegation, so Mr.
Brewster was notified, would go to Chi
cago prepared to take advantage ot op
portunities and would follow the finger
of Gov. Altgeld with as ninth, fidelity
as was manifested by the Colorado dele
gation last week tQward Senator Teller.
At the same time be was assured that
there was nothing In the story sent out
from here last night that the Altgeld
brigade had settled upon Gov. Stone ot
Missouri and Clark Howell nr tieorgU as
the Presidential ticket to be championed by-
iue uunois ueifgacicm.
NO TRUTH IN THIS STORY.
This stery. as explained to the United
Press, this morning, grew out of a letter
received late Jast night by Gov. Altgeld
frem Gov. Stone, and In which the latter
urged the indorsement of Mr. Bland by the
convention. To this the reply wes returned
that such a urse would bcincxr-edientand
that no n.i rocs or preferences would be me n
tlcned in the convention.
As to the story that ex-Gov Boles had
lost caste with Gov. Altgeld, because. In a
speech shortly after the Chicago labor
troubles, he had approved the sending ot
Federal troops to that city, it was declared
to be untrue.

Up to a week ago he was counted with the

ment in his district, and In which he is a
power, no other course was open to him
but to get alongside the 10 to 1 banner.

combined with its unsafe condition, and tho
appearance of the ambulance taking soma
one home, led to a report that a serious
accident had occurred by the falling of a
part of the building, with one person killed
