He Keeps the Republican Leaders in Doubt and Despair. The Publlo Left In Ignorance as to His Intentions—How Minister Bg-an Snubbed the Plumed Knight. By the Associated Press. 1 White Plains, N. V., Oct. 17.—Blame concluded hia visit to Whitelaw Reid this morning and left for New York. At the conclusion of his stay there, be goes to Washington for the winter. New York, Oct. 17.—Blame arrived at the Fifth Avenue hotel this afternoon. Hia arrival interested the politician? in the corridor. The Republicana aeemed delighted, but the Democrats quite tbe reverse. When Blame's attention waa called to the report that, he would write anothei letter, he eaid: "I do not want to an swer directly. If I say 'No,' I ehall be besieged by people who will beg me to do something for the party. If I say 'Yes,' I shall be requested to go hither and yon, and won't know which way to turn. 89, you see, the only thing for me to do ie to rest. I am obliged to take good care of my health." Blame looks better than he did when he went to Ophir Farm. blame's hopes of success. Regarding the campaign, Blame bases confidence as to the result of the elec ion on what he himself has seen, and from reports made to him by the Republican leaders., "In a campaign of argument and discussion, such ac this has been," says the Maine states man, "everything is in our favor, for we have the better side of the great questions before the people; besides tuis, President Harrison has given the country an able administration. All that iB now needed to insure a Republi can victory and the continuation of prosperity throughout tbe country, is for every Republican voter to cast a ballot. With our full strength out, I regard success almost certain." HOW EUAN SNUBBED BLAINE. Minister Egan today had his say in ' regard to a recent publication endeavor ing to create a sensation over an alleged attempt on hia part to snub Mr. Blame at White Plains. "Being called oa to speak without pre paration," said Egan. "I omitted to make reference to the manly and patri otic manner in which Mr. Blame stood by me throughout all tbe attacks made upon me in connection with the Chilean affair. One of tbe greatest compensa tions for the difficult time, was the fact that my entire course was so cordially approved by Mr. Blame, as well as by the president and all the members of the cabinet. There is no one who has a higher respect and regard for him than I." REPUBLICAN CH.ARGES OF FRAUD. There was a scene of considerable activity about Republican headquarters today. The Republicans charged fraud in tbe naturalization process, in that runners from Tammany bring in droves of Hungarians, Poles and Italians, who will vote the Democratic ticket, the ex penses of whom are paid and the issu ance of their papers facilitated; and it is also stated that a combination to gauge applicants for naturalization, and cut down the Republican naturalized vtte, has been operating more than three weeks, with the full knowledge of tbe officers of the courts. It is charged fur ther that Republican applications for naturalization are rejected on insufficient grounds, after spending from six hours to two days in an effort to reach the clerk's desk, behind a crowd of Tam many heelers.

A Virginia Sensation. Norfolk, Va., Oct. 17. —A sensation Was created in the second congressional district this evening by the announce ment that Hon. George E. Boweu, who served the district for two terms in con gress, and who was regularly nominated by tbe Republicans, had withdrawn from the contest. This action is the result of a decision recently reached by the national Republican con gressional committee, through the efforts of General Mahone. Tbe Republicans of the district are fnrious at tbe inter ference, and it is believed tbat no satis factory nomination can be made now. The Democratic nominee, D. Gardner Tyler, will be elected. Campbell's Prophecy. New York, Oct. 17. — Ex-General James E. Campbell of Ohio, ad dressed a large and enthusiastic audience at Tottenville, Stoten island, on the tariff question, tonight.

The Business of the Entire System Brought to a Standstill by a Forged Order to Strike. The Joker Fired. Topeka, Kan., Oct. 17.—The great strike of the telegraphers on the Santa Fe system, which began this morning, was all the result of a hoax. The oper ators were informed by Chief Ramsay tonight that the order directing them to strike was a forgery, and instructing them to return at once to their posi tions. The operators immediately re turned to their keys, and the work of straightening out the tangle caused by the strike began. Operator Baker, at Dodge City, after reading the account of the strike on the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe divisions of the Santa Fe system, thought be wou'd play a joke upon the manager of his office, and wrote out a message order ing a etrike, and signed Chief Ramsey's name thereto, and laid it on the man ager's desk. Manager Sweet after read ing it, immediately repeated the mes sage to the next station. Within fifty minutes it was received by every opera tor on the system, and fifteen minutes later, every one struck. Baker is doubtlAsß the only man who i got any fun out of the joke, for it was a I most serious business tor the Santa Fe road and the operators generally. It was not until 7 o'clock this evening that Chief Ramsay was put iv pos session of the facts, and he immediately ordered the men back to work. During the day the entire sys tem from Chicago to the Pacific Coast, and from Kansas City to G - Weston, was practically tied up, over 2,000 operators being idle The only man who re mained at bis post was the operator at Barclay, Kan., who says he knew the order was a hoax. The losb to tbe com pany is very great, while tbe only bene fit to the operators is in showing the perfect manner in which they are organ ized. Joker Baker was discharged. «• THE BI) GRANDE STRIKE. Denver, Colo., Oot. 17.—The strike of engineers, conductors and trainmen on the second and third divisions of the Denver and Rio Grande railway re mains in almost the same condition as last night. Business on the divisions is a'most at a standstill, and the effects of the strike are felt along the line. The men on the first and fourth divitions are still at work, and it is learned the conductors and engineers on these divisions will not strike unless forced to do so by their superior officers. Chairman Vickery, of the Order of Railway Telegraphers said today tbat unless a settlement of the trainmen's strike was made, the telegraphers on the Rio Grand would all come out. Tbe strikers are peaceable and no disturb ance has occurred. Trains are sent out from here, but go only to Pueblo and Canon City. No trains are yet crossing Marshall pass, or running on either of the lines between Salida and Grand Junction. All busi ness for Alamosa and Santa Fe goes from Pueblo via Las Vegas pass. Pas senger business from California is trans ferred to the Colorado Midland at Grand Junction. THE GULF LINE STRIKE. Galveston, Tex., Oct. 17.—Promptly at 7 o'clock, Sunday evening, almost every operator and station agent of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe system struck. Tbe cause of the strike was the refusal of tbe company to comply with the demand for $60 monthly m iximum pay, instead of 150, with 12 hours to constitute a day's work. The strike tonight is in statu quo. All tbe operators snd agents on the line, except about 20, are out. A RAD ROT'S REVENGE. He Wrecked His Father's House With Giaut Powder. Leadville, Colo., Oct.. 17. —Herman Truuim, the 18 year-old son of A. 8. Truman, with several companions, se cured 200 pounds of giant powder and placed it in a small mine near his father's residence. Tbe intention was to kill the boy's father, mother and little brother, against whom he had a fancied grudge. The powder was exploded by a long fuse, and Truman's resi dence, as well as that of Peter Breen, next door, was almost wrecked. Miraculously none of the in mates were seriously injured. It was found tbat the boy had stolen $200 be longing to his father, aud taken refuge with a partner in a cave $12 miles from town. Officers have gone to make his arrest. As Truman is the victim of the dime novel, and is armed, it is probable that he will resist. The explosion caused hundreds of dollars damage. Several houses must be entirely rebuilt.

The World's Fair Military Pa rade Will Be a Fiasco, And Grover Cleveland Will Not At tend the Dedication. Tho Ex-President Is Too Sensitive to Make Political Capital by Taking Advantage of His Biral's Misfortune. By the A stored K'ass. Chicao, o, Oct. 17—-Clamorous e.xpretff' ion of diav'pointment wae raised today, over the ofh'cial announcement that the great r»ilita.*y parade at tbe World's fair dedication 1 would be confined to tbe outskirts of tti* city, consisting only of a short march from Washington p«rk to the World's fair grounds. While the managers of the parade declare there was never intention of parading tbe down-town streets, there is no doubt that such an idea was generally enter tained, and the consensus of opinion this afternoon was that those responsible for the arrangements made a great mistake, which could hardly fail to lead to wide spread criticism and ill feeling. United States infantry, cavalry, artil lery and marines, to the number of 2700 went into camp at the world's fair grounds today. A larger body of troops will arrive tomorrow, and os Wednes day the advance'guard of the militia of different states will be on the ground, also, making arrangements for the re ception of their regiments. Tbe members of tbe national commis sion and board of lady managers, as well as distinguished visitors and hordes of sight-seers, are pouring into town as they have never done before. Great ac tivity was displayed by the merchants today, in decorating their buildings, preparatory to the dedication. CLEVELAND WILL NOT ATTEND. Grover Cleveland, Mrs. Cleveland and Baby Ruth will not come to Chicago, after all. Secretary Culp, of the com mittee on ceremonies, today received the following letter from Mr. Cleveland: "My response to your courteous invi tation to attend tbe dedication ceremo monies of the world's Columbian expo sition has been long delayed. I should be very glad to be present on the inter esting occasion, and thus show my ap preciation of its importance, if I could do so solely aB ex-president of tbe United States. lam sure, however, that this is impossible, and I am unwilling to un dertake tbe trip, which, from beginning to end, despite all effort on my part, would be regarded as a political tour made by a candidate for the presidency. My general aversion to such a trip is overwhelmingly increased in this in stance when I recall the afflictive dis pensation which detains at the bedside of a sick wife, another candidate for the presidency. I have thus frankly stated the reasons which constrain me to forego the satisfaction which the ac ceptance of your invitation would other wise afford me. I hope, in tbe light of a considerate and sympathetic senti ment which ought to be felt by all of our people, that these considerations be deemed an abundant justification of ac tion. Yours truly, Grover Cleveland." morbidly Ben6ltitm. Another report says: The committee on ceremonies of the world's fair re ceived a letter from Grover Cleveland, saying he would not be present at tbe ceremonies. He had intended to do so, and the reason for his change of plans was given in the following sentence from hie letter: "I may be over sensitive, and even morbid on the subject, but I cannot allow myself to take political advantage of the opportunity afforded in the sad sickness that keeps President Harrison away from Chicago." Columbian Fetes in Havana. Havana, Oct. 17. —The parade held here yesterday as part of tbe fetes in honor of the Columbian anniversary was very imposing. It lasted from 2to 9 o'clock. The entire city was in gala attire. Many Americans witnessed the display. A Rlow at the Goal Combine. New York, Oct. 17—Attorney-Gener al John P. Stockton, of New Jersey, struck a hard blow today at the Read ing coal combination. In behalf of the state, he appeared before the chancellor in Jereey City, and asked tbat a re ceiver be appointed to take charge of the New Jersey Central, the Eastern and Amboy and the Delaware and Bound Brock railroad compa nies, to enforce the chancellor's injunction against all tbe railroads in the coal combination in New Jersey. 1 Two informations weie filed, and the chancellor granted, without hesitation, tbe prayers in both, and made them returnable October 27th. The attorney . genera) filed with the papers a masß of evidence showing that the temporary and permanent orders of the court for bidding increases in the price of coal ' were ignored and violated. A Question of Jurisdiction. St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 17.—The man damus proceedings before Judge Brill, by which the Democratic state commit tee seek to compel tbe secretary of state to place the People's party electors, whom they have endorsed with other Democrats, as well as with the Populist electors on the ballot, came up for bearing this morning. The entire argument was on the question of jnris diction, which was already waived by the state. When Attorney-General Clapp was called upon he replied that, having waived the question of jurisdic tion, argument was unnecessary, where upon G. D. O'Brien demanded, as an elector, to hear from tbe attorney-gen eral. Clapp maintained that an execu tive officer was exempt from judicial in terference in the performance of bis duties. The court announced that its decision as to jurisdiction would be ren dered tomorrow morning. PRICE FIVE CENTS. YOUNG SALVINI. He Makes a Great Hit ln His Opening Night in Han Franciaco. Ban Francisco, Oct. 17.—Alexander Salvini began big first engagement as a star in San Francisco tonight, at the California theater, to one of the largest and mo3t fashionable audiences of the leason.

K. ■ — • MICKIOANIZING IS FEKFEOTLY LE GITIMATE. Tho United State* Supreme Court So De cides, and Thereby Increases Mr. Clereland's Chances of | Election. Washington, Oct. 17.—The United States supreme court, by Chief Justice Fuller, today reaffirmed the judgment of the Michigan supreme court, uphold ing the constitutionality of the famous M iner law, providing for the choice of presidential electors by congressional districts, instead of by the etate as a whole. The court holds that the four teenth amendment to tbe constitution of the United States does aot limit the right of a state to fix the mode of choos ing electors. It is conceded that the effect of the decision will be to give part, at least, of the Michigan electoral vote to Cleve land. The opinion is unanimous. Chief Justice Fuller, in announcing; the conclusion of the court, eaid the an nouncement was made at, this time, be cause of the exigency suggested by counsel requiring early action. Here after the court won id file an opinion setting forth more fully the grounds ott which it decided the case. On tbe question of jurisdiction, which point the Democrats waived, the chief justice said the court ruled that under section 709, revised statutes, it had jurisdiction. The chief justice said, fur ther, that the court ruled, in view of the language of the clause of the constitu tion giving to state legislatures the right to determine the method of choosing ing presidential electors, and contem poraneous construction, that it cannot be held invalid for want of power in a state legislature to paBS such a law, adding that the clause affected in the first section, article 2, of tbe constitu tion, was not changed by the fourteenth amendment, and tbe law was not ob noxious to that amendment. Attorney-General Miller moved for a writ of certiorari before the supreme court, to bring the case of the United l States against the steamship Itata be fore the court. The lower couit decided against the right of the United States to seize the Itata, and a speedy determina tion of the question by the highest court is wanted. The* supreme court adjourned thie afternoon until Monday, to permit the justices to attend the dedicatory exer cises at Chicago. BUSTLERS EXTERMINATED.
