speculation In Regard to the Ohio Re
publican N taie Convention Chicago, May 27 .—Mucü speculation is being indulged in by correspondents and poli ticians concerning the Ohio Republican Con vention to-morrow. As the Democrats seem likely to nominate Thurman, the Republicans incline more and more to put up Sherman It is stated that there is no doubt Thurman will accept if nominated. The Journal'8 Washington special says: More than ordinary interest is manifested here in the Ohio Republican Convention, on account of the position taken by the Presi dent in favor of the nomination of ex-Repre sentative Poster for Governor as against Judge Taft. The friends of the latter say they have advices to-day which indicate quite conclusively he will defeat Foster and receive the nomination. Nearly all the Republican members from Ohio have gone to Cincinnati to attend the convention. Senator Thurman and the Democratic Representatives evince much anxiety about the action of the conven tion. The Silver nines oi Arkansas Little Rock, May 26.—Trustworthy ad vices from the silver mining region in Mont gomery county, near the Hot Springs, are to the effect that rich ore has been discovered near the surface, iq many places covering an area of several miles. California, Nevada and Colorado miners now here concur in say ing the prospect is very good. As yet there is no satisfactory evidence of the discovery of the true fissure. A stamping mill has been ordered and is expected soon. ' "Dia mond Joe Reynolds, of Chicago, sunk a shaft 118 feet and then stopped operations after expending $15,000. Some specimens taken from several mines are very rich. The question is as to the quantity to be found. Prospectors are very sanguine but have yet to realize their hopes. A great many claims are staked off, and there is a heavy rush to the region, which is about twenty miles west of the Hot Springs. The Mine» of ArizonH. New York, May 27. —General Atkinson, Surveyor General of New Mexico, and form ; erly Commissioner of Pensions, is here, in speaking of the New Mexico mines, which attract attention in the adjacent States and Territories, said : Over 300 claims had been staked off in the Los Cerillos district up to May 8th, aud about 70 shafts w ere begun. About this time, too, a gold and silver bear ing lode was discovered in the sandy moun tains just back of Beralillo and Albuquerque. The character of the ore is the same as that of Los Cerillos, and the indications are that it is a part of the same vein. It is located about 20 miles to the southwest of Los Cerillos dis trict. The ore of the district embraces car bonates and sulphrets, chlorides, galena, quartz carrying silver, galena and copper. There is a small quantity of gold in the vein, also, and some gold placer mines have been dis covered. What makes the discovery more important is that all the veins are true fissures so far as they have been opened and are known. He, however, discourages persons from going to the new mines unless they have something to live upon after they get there. of The CaucuH Policy llefiued. New York, May 27. -The Bulletin's Wash ington special says : The House members of the joint Democratic caucus committee met this afternoon and unanimously agreed upon the following line of policy, which will be brought up to-morrow before the joint com mittee: They propose to send to the President as thefir8t bill, the test oath, which will be signed as a separate measure. Next they will send in as separate bills, one repealing the use of troops at the polls, and another re pealing the supervisor's laws. These will both be vetoed. Then they will pass a joint resolution extending the appropriations tor the army until December, coupled with the proviso that no troops shall be used at elec tions, and also for legislative purposes, on condition that the supervisors do not act. If these are vetoed they propose to adjourn, and if again convened by the President to repeat the programme. Beyond that all is chaos. AhmmiI nul Ion. Riverton, (Ky.,) May 26.—The Under wood war has again broken out on Upper Tygarts creek, in Center county. Elva Un derwood, while peacefully at work in a corn field near his home, was shot from an am hush on Thursday, and when his children hastened to him they found him in a dying condition, his chest being perforated by two balls. Elva's father was also killed in a aim ilar manner, and Jesse has entered the field as the avenger of his families wrongs. It is feared that the r e will be a fearful amount of bloodshed, and the farmers up in that neigh borhood are afraid of becoming the victims -of some assassin's ball. The Case of P. A. Coleman. Washington, May 27. —The Attorney General has rendered an opinion in the case of P . N. Coleman, a citizen of Tennessee, who was tried for murder by court martial during the war and sentenced to be executed. He was subsequently taken out of the bands of the military and tried by tbe State courts and again sentenced to be executed, but on appeal to the United States Supreme Court the action of tbe State courts was set aside. Tbe Attorney General bolds that tbe sentence of the court martial was not effected by tbe decision of tbe Supreme Court and can be carried into execution, but in view of tbe cir cumstances and tbe times when tbe crime was committed and tbe lapse of time since its commission, be recommends tbe President to commute the sentence to imprisonment for life.
