Wa are glad that Whitelaw Reid haa been given the second place on the Har rison ticket, because, first, be is a news paper man; and, second, because he will elongate the cold chill that ia going through the Republican party like a blast from the north pole. Blood will have blood. Bob Ford, who pretended to be a friend of Jesse James and shot bim down in cold blood for the reward tbat was placed on his head, was served the same way two days ago at Crede, Colorado. A desperado named Edward Kelley fired both barrels of a shotgun into him, killing him in stantly. • The time of Justice Owens and a jury was occupied for seven hours yesterday with the trial of two 10-year-old boys on the charge of petit larceny. All the youngsters needed was a proper appli cation of a shingle at the place where it would do the most good. To regard children of tbat age as criminals is as much a relic of tbe past as is the chain gang. It is stated unofficially that Judge An son Brunson wstrered $50 yesterday that California would go Democratic at the next election; and furthermore that he wanted to wager $1000 that Harrison would be defeated. These statements, if true, mark Judge Brunson, though a Republican, as possessing an extraordi narily clear judicial mind, backed by the power of second sight. Let the fJrecaster of political happen ings keep his eye on ex-Governor Gray of Indiana. There is a great deal of material in him for presidential timber, and he will loom up strong in the Chi cago convention. He would make In diana a Democratic certainty, and New York has a warm place in its heart for the man upon whom tbe manile of the lamented Hendricks has fallen. "Why don't you enthuse?" said a Democrat to a Republican in front of the Herald office yeaterday afternoon, when the nomination of Harrison was put oa the bulletin board. 'There's your,candidate, why don't you cheer?" "It is not our turn," auswered the man addressed; "even if it were possible, you would hardly expect us to go into ecataaies over our own funeral." In the lowest order of animated crea tion tbere is an insect that possesses the dual function of Eelf-reproduction. The friends of Blame, when they saw how Harrison's own creatures —the men to whom he had given official life —repro- duced him as a candidate to succeed himself, must have been struck with the similarity of reproductive powers pos eeseed by himself and the insects tbat have the same wonderful faculty. Tue Republicans of Los Angeles were bo stunned and disappointed at the .nomination of Harrison that it will take some time for them to gather themselves together. Not even the faintest note of enthusiasm has followed the announcement, and if it wero not lor the satisfaction evinced by our even ing contemporary there would not be a ripple of gratification visible anywhere at the work of the Minneapolis conven tion. The silver planks in the Republican platform will strike the average reader as a maze of words, intended to confuse without enlightening. Our evening con temporary eulogizes this part of the platform as a clear-cut statement of sound principles that will secure the •ndorsement of the people of the Pacific coast. For the same reason, we pre sume, that the darkey was delighted with the sermons of an eminent preach er, whose doctrines be knew to be sound because he didn't understand what he said. Oca special from Washington says that the nomination diapleaEed no one in that city excepting the frienda of Elaine. The Democrats were elated, because they believed that it insured a victory for the ticket that would be ee lected at Chicago. There seems to be a general feeling amongst the Democrats everywhere that if tbey cannot defeat the Minneapolis nominations they can defeat nothing. The announcement that Geary, the representative from thia state, is talked of aa an available man to nominate for vice-president at Chicago, ia news. Tun New York World animadverts severely upon tbe Hatch anti-options bill which passed the house Tuesday, and holds that "it ia a measure wholly mischievous, involving an unwarranted and very dangerous federal interference with the business of the people." The atmosphere of Wall street evidently reaches to Printing House square. The World makes the mistake to consider dealing in options in stock boards aa legitimate business, instead ot gam bling pore and simple. To prove this it is only necessary to point ont the fact that there is never or rarely a delivery of the goods bid upon for fu tures. The bidder simply bets tbat wheat and stocks will fetch such a price at such a date. If tbey do not he has to pay the margin; if they go over the point bid, the seller has to make the difference good. If the Hatch bill be comea a law, and resulta in no disloca tion of tbe business of boards of trade excepting to put an end to bucket-shop transactions, it will be a meaanre of beneficence. THE MINNEAPOLIS NOMINATION. Mr. Harriaon it is—a respectable nom ination. We congratulate the Republi can party on ita escape from James G. Blame. We congratulate the country on ita escape from the demoralization that would have attended a canvass in volving peraonalitiea on one side, and tbe attempted rehabilitation of a char acter so oblique aa Mr. Blame's, npon the other. President Harriaon ia a narrow man, without a warm personal following, and quite unpalatable to Pacific coaat Re publicana. But be ia an bonest, if bigoted, little gentleman, and ia a fair representative of the doctrines and pur poses of hia party. If the national Democracy shall nnite npon a candidate who can carry the state of New Yor,k there ia little donbt of Harrison's defeat at the polls. There fore we congratulate the Democratic party upon Harrison's nomination. Bit terness waa engendered at Minneapolia. Let ua hope there will be no dierupting factional clashiuga at Chicago. If Sen ator Hill should step forward and nom inate Mr. Cleveland, there would not be a dissenting vote in the convention. If the votes of the regular delegation from New York are determinedly hostile to Mr. Cleveland, the nomination will doubtless go to the west, and Mr. Har rison's defeat will be a foregone con clusion. The nomination of Harrison fell like a wet blanket upon the Republicans of California. In this city the faces of men who are always enthusiastic for their party grew grave and their tongues silent when the result of the ballot was announced. It was not their time to feel elated. The friends of Blame are very bitter over their defeat. This bitterness is intensified by tbe fact that they were overcome, not by the independent judg ment of their party, but by tbe power of federal patronage. The southern states, none of which can be carried for the party, held the balance of power in the convention, and their delegations, in nearly every instance, were domi nated by the appointees of Harrison. The bitterness occasioned by the sharp friction of the friends of the several can didates in the heat of contest would soon pass away; but the resentment en gendered from a defeat brought about by the power of federal patronage will be deep and lasting. It will run clear through the canvass, and show itself at the polls with a significance that will tell with solid effect upon the result. We sum up the prospects of the cam paign, in the light of the work dono at -Minneapolis, as superlatively favorable to the Democratic party. Nothing but an error of stupendous magnitude at Chicago can prevent the nominee of the Democracy from triumphantly reach ing the White House. WEAK, SHUFFLING AND DECEPTIVE. Outside of the planks upon tariff, reciprocity and indorsing the force bill, the Minneapolis platform is a budget of glittering generalities and false asser tion. The silver question is straddled and befogged, the red shirt is tenta tively shaken, the immigration problem is glozed over, trusts are iaintly in veighed against, civil-service reform is patted on the back, prohibition is obliquely indorsed, an increaeed pen sion list is hinted at end Harrison's administration is exalted. Wo are treated with a strong declara tion against the union of Church and state, which nobody had the slightest idea was imminent. The con struction of the Nicaragua canal is fa vored, and the declaration is made that the United States should control it; but the platform is very careful not to com mit the party to material government aid iv its completion. The great rail road corporations do not want the canal and it would not do to antagonize them too strongly. There is a plank advocat ing the cession of arid lands to the states, a pernicious proposition, and one which would result in turning all the irrigable lands into the hands of monop olists. The result of tbe desert land law ought to warn us against repeating the experiment. If tbe arid lands are passed over to the states ostensibly for the pur pose of assisting the states in carrying out a uniform irrigation system, it will result in one of the most oppressive mo nopolies even this monopoly-oppressed country has ever witnessed. The plat form as an entirety is beneath even the regulation mediocrity of Republican platforms. It is weak where it ought to be strong, obscure and non-committal where it ought to be clear and positive, and shuffling and deceptive where it ought to be outspoken and honest. It is, however, a fitting corollary to the nominations made by the body from which it was evolved. Mb. Plains will be at home from this date. The only difference between his situation and Harrison's is that tbe latter will wait till March 4th before quitting Washington for good—with the accent on the good. The tract of country which used to be marked "Great American Desert" on the mßpg of the old geographies haa of late years often been referred to as a myth, and has also been asserted to sur pass all other deserts in tbe unpleasant characteristics of drouth and infertility. TBM LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 11, 189?. The difference of opinio* seems to be tbe result of difference of time when the view Was taken. For the hottest, most arid and dreariest portion of it, that corner lying partially in California, in response to this season's rainfall now blossoms like tbe rose and produces sus tenance for countless numbers of cattle. A Herald reporter went to the Union league rooms yesterday afternoon to get some points about the enthusiasm which Harrison's nomination had created, but hia detail waa sadly interfered witb, be cause not a member waa to be found. The janitor auggested that they might be located in the swearing room. AMUSEMENTS. There was even a larger audience at the Grand operahouse last night than tbere waa on tbe initial night of Blue Jeana. Today there will be a matinee at 2 o'clock. McCarthy's Mishaps will be|presented at the Grand opera house for three nights, commencing Monday, by the Ferguson and Mack company. As to the merita of thia organization it ia only necessary to point to the very excellent players who are identified witb it. Of tbe ekit we may aay, judging from press commenta throughout the cities where it has been eeen, chat it meets all tbe re quirements, aa from beginning to end it ia one continuous round of merriment, having very little plot. Still, what is lacking in plot ia made up by the funni est of dialogue, amusing incidents and laughable complications, together with specialties of every description, which are interwoven with the farcical situa tions of each act. THEY DO "CHAW-SIR." Student* Hold an Amusing- Entertain ment tv Unlverolt/ Ohapei. The opening shot of the commence ment campaign at the University of Southern California waa fired last even ing, when the Chaw-Sir club (boye boarding club) graduated one of their number. The exercises, which were of a comical nature, were held in Univer sity chapel before a large audience. The txercises were begnn with the in vocation by Rev. Carnes. Lee Sbepard followed witb a flute solo. Messrs. Thurston and Van Cleve won their way into tbe good graces of the audience by singing a very humorous song: The Boarding-house Young Man. Each of tbe singers received a huge bouquet of cornstalks, etc. A Big Yarn, a sample of the kind which fly round about tbe tables of the Chaw-Sir club, waa related by J. R. Ross. F. N. Lapbam made a few funny re marks as to tbe objects of tbe Chaw-Sir club. He presented Mr. R. G. Van Cieve with a mustache cup, which be received as a prize for being the "biggest liar in tbe club." Mr. Lapbam received a souvenir in tbe shape of a couple of beef ribs, presumably from the kitchen of the club. Fred Thurston kept tbe ball a-rolling by giving forth the club prophecy. An Oriental Duet wae provided by the Mikado and his nameless servant. It consisted of ear splitting squeaks, such aa our Cninese brethren admire. Messrs. Begmer and Cook acted the parts of tbe musicians. Clarence Dougherty made an addieEs showing by an arithmetical process how many cattle and how much of the vege table Bingkom, etc., the members of the Chaw Sir club consume in a life time. He showed the many advantages of be longing to this wonderful society. H. W. Cummings, the young elocu tionist, added to his already well estab lished reputation as a dtclaimer by ap pearing in the role of the Georgia preacher and giving a mock eermon on Noah's experience with tbe flood. It was hugely interesting and comical, aud the audience called him back to the platform. He answered with an Irish piece, St. Patrick's Birthday. Mr. Van Cieve, the president of the club, made a speech presenting to the graduating Chaw-Sir his diploma. The diploma was a piece of genuine undressed sheepskin, just as it was taken from the back of tbe sheep, witb the wool on one Bide. Inscribed on the other side was the followim:: "LAUGH AND GROW FAT." [Seal of tbe state of California ] This is to certify that L W. Robinson has eaten bis full share and has finished his course at the Chaw -ircluboi tke University of South ern California. In testimony of which this charter is hereby Riven to him on thli loih nay of June, 18'Ji. R. G. VAN CLRVE, President. F. N. Laviiam, Secretary. T. W. Robinson, the graduate, replied in a neat speech on receiving his di ploma. A quartette of young men, Messrs. Cieve, Thurston, Robs and Hall, sang Pro Fundo Baseo. Tbe printed programme for the eve ning was unique, having a picture of a young chicken breaking its shell and chasing a mosquito. A BIG CONTRACT. Crowley and Marsh to Build a Tremen dous Ditch. Messrs. J. E. Crowley and Martin Marsh yesterday secured the contract for building a tremendous irrigation ditch in Arizona, for the Arizona Con struction company, which has secured the properties of the Arizona Dam and Irrigation company. The construction company is composed of gome of the ttrocgest men financially in the county. J. W. Gift is the president, William Jack secretary, and Elliott Cullender treasurer; and the directory, besides the above, includes J. B. Greenhut, W. C. Gibson, G. W. Gibson, J. 8. Stephens, G. W. Dougherty and J. S. Stephens, all of Peoria, 111. The ditch is to be 35 miles in length, and to be 25 feet wide at the bottom, 50 feet at the top, and 8 feet deep, and will carry enough water to float a canal boat, and will cost upwards of a half a mil lion. Messrs. Crowley & Marsh will com mence the work immediately, as it is to be completed by the first of the year. They will employ from 500 to 600 men men. The same firm have secured tbe con tract to build a branch of the Southern Pacific road from Castle Crag to the Red Cross lumber mills, in Shasta county. Astronomer Burubart Resigns.

Dlccount Tea Con pan y, 250 South Main street, THE BATTLE FOUGHT TO A FINISH President Harrison's Adminis tration Sustained. Whitelaw Reid Given Second Place on the Ticket. Much Bitterness Left by the Contest at Minneapolis—The Closing- Session of the Great Convention. By the Associated Pi ess. Minneapolis, June 10.—The battle haa been fought and the administration of Harrison sustained by the Republi can party in hia nomination for preai dent for a second term. Every resource known to political warfare waa brought to bear by the leaders of the opposition to defeat the president's renomination, but his friends held eteadfaat to tbe end. Tbe name of Blame on every oc casion called forth a vast amount of en thusiasm, but the result demonstrated that a new era has arrived in national conventions, and the preferences of del egates are no longer to be swayed by the manifestation of cheering thousands in the galleries. At no time did the name of President Harrison evoke the enthu siasm that waa called forth by the names of Blame and McKinley. Half a dozen conferences were held at early hours by the anti-administration leaders to determine what was best to be done. Tbe proceedings of the con vention show the retult of these confer ences. It was determined to keep Blame in the field until tbe spirit of the con vention had been obtained, and then endeavor by skillful move to stampede the convention and nominate McKinley. Pennsylvania was the first state to turn aside against the compromise candidate, ushered forth by the most solid vote of the state of Ohio, and Matt Quay is, as in years gone by, a prominent figure in Republican politics. much bitterness left. The exact effect which Harrison's nomination is to have upon the party will Dot be known until the passions of the men have subsided. There is a great deal of bitterness tonight, and probably much of this will live during the campaign, but whether it will be sufficient to endanger the euccess of the Republican ticket, is problematical. Chairman Clarkson, ex-Senator Piatt, J. Sloat Fassett, ex-Governor ioraker and others intimate tonight that their coats are off aud that they expect to enter the political arena in behalf of the nominee of the Republican party. John C. New, who has figured largely in the Harrison councils, is in fine spirits. He said tbey had made a hard tight, and had met skillful opponents, but bad nothing to say against them. Ex-Senator Spooner Baid: "This haa been the most remaikable contest of tbe kind that ever took place in tbia coun try, but the bitter prolonged contest haa left but little animosity behind, and the indication is that the patty will be united and win a splendid victory." Colonel Conger, of Ohio, said: "I should bave, preferred to see Blame nominated, but consider that the con vention made a good choice, and I will *ork to elect the nooltnee." Senator Teller said: "Colorado be lieves Blame would have been a stronger man, but we are loyal Republicans and stand by the ticket, and if Harrison is defeated, it will be by the.men who forced his nomination." REID FOR SECOND PLACE. Shortly before the meeting of the evening session, tbe New York delega tion had its conference, and the seventy two delegates of that state unanimously Agreed to present the name of Whitelaw Reid for vice president. At this meet ing the following communication was received: To the Republican National Convention and tne Members of the Now York delegation: At a meeting of the undersigned,a committee representing Typographical union No. 0 of New York, the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted: Whereas The dlffcreuceti heretofore existing between our union and the New Yuri Tribune hare been honorably adjusted to tbe complete satisfaction of boih sides: and Whereas, The Hon. Whitelaw Reid, editor of the Tribune, has been favorably mentioned as a candidate tor the Republican party for the office of vice-president: therefore be it Resolved, That this commluee endorses his candidacy and request that he be named for the office. (Signed) John a. Kenny, President Typographical Union No. 6. W. J. BIIKNNAN, ROBKItT COSTELLO, Thomas Hancock, PIEBCE P. HUBLKY, Committee. THE evening session. The evening cession of the convention was called to order by Chairman Mc- Kinley, who announced the order of business to be the presentation of can didates for vice-president of the United States.. The secretary called tbe roll, and when the state of New York was repched, Senator O'Conner waa recog nized by the chair. He said: "I was designated by the New York delegation to present the name of a dis tinguished citizen of New York for vice president. We want to assure you that in our opposition to tbe nomination of the successful candidate there wae nothing of a personal nature, and we now recognize the duty of every Repub lican to bow loyally to the judgment of thia convention. We believe tbe state of New York ought to be aided in the great struggle it will have to make in order to place that state in the Republi can column; and I believe the gentle man whom I f hall name, will aid us materially in accomplishing tbat pur pose. "Therefore, in behalf of the New York delegation, I place in nomination for vice-president of the United States, Hon. Whitelaw Reid." [Applause.] PORTER SECONDS REID. The nomination was seconded by Hon. Horace Porter of New York. He said: "The character and services of White- .law Reid will, give assurance that he will carry out the policy oi the party; staid and strong in the affection of bis fellow citizens, he will command the un qualified respect of the people of the civilized globe. He is pre eminently to day New York's favorite son. He is the legitimate and worthy successor of that great creator of modern journalism, Hor ace Greeley. He has served as minister from the oldest republic of the new world to the newest republic of the old world. He has solved successfully the mon complicated and intricatequestions tbat have arisen in diplomacy be tween the two countries. Tbroughont various complicated diplomatic trans ac tions, be retained the absolute confi dence of h<s own government and se cured the respect of the French govern ment, to which he was accredited. There ia bo blot on his eacntcheon. Give us Reid, and his name and services will do more than any other in assisting in the campaign. Give oa bim, and we will give you victory in November." Governor Bulkley of Connecticut alao seconded the nomination. Tbe chairman then aaked that the nomination of Reid be made by accla mation. Tom reed's name presented. J. S. Settle of Tennessee aaid : "In obedience to the request of tbe Tennes see delegation I desire to make a nom ination." The chairman recognized the gentle man from Tennessee. Mr. Settle: "Underordinary circum atances we who live in the south do not have much to aay about tbe nomination of candidates for the preaidency and for vice-president. We prefer rather to let you gentlemen who live in the Repuoli can states make the nominations, and do what we can to help you elect them. But Tennessee today feela tbat she haa a right to ask the conven tion to nominate a man for vice president who is as intensely American aa any American who breathes the air upon the American continent. A man who haa demon strated to tbe American people *hia ability at all timea and nnder all cir cumstances to make American citizen ship reapected: a man who ia able to, and who did stop the Democratic party in tbe halls of tbe American congress from filibuetering, and who succeeded in giving an impetus to the business of the government; a man who believes tbat citizenship in Tennessee or Louisiana ia entitled to the aame protection it haa in New York or Connecticut. Tenneaaee, Mr. Chairman, places in nomination for vice-president of the United States, one of the grandest characters in American politics, Thomaa B. Reed, of Maine." [Applause ] The chair—Are there further nomina tions? [Criea of "No, no; question."] The chair —Shall we, by unanimous consent, dispense with further call of atatee? [Ones of "Yes" and "No."] C. M. Louthan of Virginia seconded the nomination of Thomaa B. Reed. czar reed's name withdrawn. General Littleßeld of Maine asked the delegates of the convention to decline to caat their votes for Reed until they could be aasured that gentlemen have authority to present hia name to tbe convention, aa General Littlefield said it waa the opinion of the Maine delegation tbat Reed would decline the nomination if tendered him. Mr. Settle and Mr. Louthan both said they were not acquainted with Mr. Heed and had no authority for placing hia name before the convention, but did so at the request of the Tennessee delega tion, and, as they considered, voicing the sentiment of the country, and Mr. Louthan formally withdrew Reed'a name. REID NOMINATED BY ACCLAMATION. Kearney of lowa moved to suspend tbe rules and make the nomination of Whitelaw Reid for vice-president by ac clamation. The chairman aaked if the convention waa ready for the question. [Criea of "question."] The ayea and naya being taken, the chairman said: "In the opinion of the chair more than two-thirds voted in tbe affirmative, and the rules are suspended and the nomination made; shall it be unani mous?" [Criea of "Yea."] Tbe chair—Those favoring it will aay aye. Tbe motion ia carried. Tbe announcement of the nomination of Reid occasioned a demonstration on the part of both the delegatea and audi ence. MESSENGERS TO THE NOMINEES. Next order of business waa the report of Btatee of members of a committee to notify tbe president and Mr. Reid of their nomination, nnd tbe secretary called tbe roll.

He Saya It Can Be Made to Wla la No vember. Boston, June 10. —Ex-Secretary Blame and Mra. Blame left for Bar Harbor on tbe 7 p. m. train over the Boston and Maine railroad. Before he left the city this evening, Mr. Blame gave this com munication to a representative of the Boston Journal: Tbe reaolution, energy and persistence which marked the proceedings of the convention at Minneapolis, will, if turned against the common foe, win the election in November. All minor dif ferences should be merged in the duty of every Republican to do all in hia power to elect the ticket th>, day nom inated by the national Republican con vention. (Signed) Jambs G. Blainb. *. THEY SHALLOW THE IMLL. How the Chronicle and Call View Har rison's lt< nomination. San Francisco, June 10. —The morn ing newspapers of this city comment editorially upon the renomination of President Harrison. The Chronicle says: "While it would be idle to deny that the sentiment of the large majority of the Republican party of California favorod Blame, it is equally true that no Republican who has the interests of hia party at heart has any right to feel dissatisfied witb the action of the Republican convention in renominating President Harrison. Tbat President Harrison will dieplay during bis aecond term the qualities which have marked hia first term; sound judgment, cool delibera tion and sterling and irreproachable in tegrity, no one will daro to deny; and his election will follow his nomination with as much certainty as one season' follows another." The Call says: "Harrison's renomi nation ia a aignal victory of the better element in politics, and the people have atood by the man who haa served them well. The condition never for a mo ment existed which would justify a vote for any other candidate than Harrison while Harrison remained before the con vention. The political atmoephexe is clearer for the action of the convention. Tbe better element of tbe Republican party is now in charge of the campaign." REPUBLICAN RATIFICATION. Tbey Will Shout Tonight for Bonnie •nd Grandpa's Hat. The Republicans intend to have a grand ratification tnrnont tonight in honor of the renomination of Harrison by the national convention. The proceeeion will form on Main street, the right resting on Second. All clubs and organizations will be on band to start promptly at 8 o'clock.
