No Conditions Attached to the Offer ol the State Portfolio to Mr. Blaine Music In Store for Gen. Harrison. Indianapolis, Feb. 18. Barring possible declinations on the part of some of the men lelected, and scarcely possible changes of mind oq the part of Gen. Harrison, the next :abiuet will be as follows: Secretary of state, James Gillespie Blaine of Maine. Secretary of the treasury, William Windom of Minnesota. Secretary of war, Jere Kusk of Wisconsin. Secretary of the nary, John R. Thomas of Illinois. Secretary of the interior, John Willock Noble of Missouri. ' Postmaster general, John Wanamaker of Pennsylvania. Attorney general, William Henry Harrison Miller of Indiana, Secretary of agriculture, Warner Miller of New York. This make-up of the cabinet has been set tled since Saturday, when the acceptance by Mr. Windom of the treasury department made it possible to proceed with the choice of men for the three or four minor places that bad been held open pending the settlement of that question. Of the eight, it is understood that Blaine, Windom, Rusk, Noble, Wana maker and Miller of Indiana have already practically accepted the places for which they are set down. There is some doubt yet as to Thomas, and, it is understood, a little as to whether Warner Miller will be contented with tha post of distribution of seeds. The chief likelihood of change in the cabinet is in those places. If the feeling here among the men who have, ever since the convention last summer, been vaunting their confidence in the sound judgment and vigorous, not to say rigorous, backbone of Benjamin Harrison, is any indi cation of what the feeling will be throughout ibe country upon the announcement of the cabinet, there is a heap of lively music in store for President Harrison. The Hoosier Republicans first hesitated in their adoration f Harrison when they were compelled to ad mit that Blaine was to be secretary of state. They had scarcely braced themselves up after this with the consoling idea that perhaps it was merely another evidence of the integrity )t their favorite's backbone that he dared to lake nr Blaina. ' Wi --f!... 'WlffilNUTON?s7TK ft -"M. Blah last -( liirht' Dronounced surdly untrue the story telegraphed from pdianapolis that he had been given the secretaryship of state in Harri son's cabinet only upon the condition that he would resign at the end of three months from the 4th of March. His friends say that it is inconceivable either that Harrison would make such a tender or that Mr. Blaine would consider it. Mr. Blaine is going into the cabinet to stay through the whole of Harri son's administration, they say. If he does not, it will not be Blaine's fault, they add significantly. EDMUNDS' PANAMA RESOLVE. Promise of Moult When It Is Called In tha House. Washington, Feb. 20.

All the ablest men on the Democratic side support Norwood's re port as against McCreary's. It is probable that Mr. McCreary will not be able to get the Edmunds' resolution adopted. A FATAL JUMP.
