weigh little or nothing alongside of the
important fact that the political exigea
cies of the Republican party demands
the selection of a city that will be to the
greatest iuterest of the party. The earnest,
energetic men from the west—from San
Francisco, Omaha, Minneapolis and De
Ute höldTn/T O a 1 H iC f
the holding of the national convention in
the west is almost essential to the success
of the party next year.
What Weiter» Men Say.
"The Republican party," Mr. Coe, of the
Omaha delegation, says, "cannot afford
now to be as independent as it once was.
The experience which it has met in the
last two or three years very plainly indl
cates that it cannot afford to throw away
any opportunities which may make votes.
We feel this very keenly out in Nebraska,
and for the good of the party the conven
tion ought to be held iu the west." This
seems to be the general sentiment among
western Republicans.
The Argument New York Uses.
On the other hand New Yorkers in urg
ing the claims of their city, point to the
fact that New York is a close state and
very close to New Jersey and Connecticut,
both doubtful or Democratic states, and
argue that it would be political wisdom of
the highest order to hold the convention
in the metropolis. The Minneapolis people
are hard at work in the interest of their
city, and so far they are confident that
Minneapolis will be at the top. They feel
certain of receiving not less than fourteen
votes on the first ballot, and have no fear
of falling below that number at
any
time. They have been putting out feelers
among their western competitors for a
good second place, in case the fight be
comes a long ®ne, and in that event they
hope to make a sortie on their enemies and
come out victors.
Minneapolis Fears Cincinnati.
They consider Cincinnati their most
dangerous rival, but do not tbiuk New
York cares much for the convention, as
the Gothamites are apparently not mak
ing much of a canvass. San Francisco
and Omaha, they think, will receive six or
seven votes on the start, but they have
doubts as to their ability to make any
great showing in the race.
Washburne and Davis and ex-Senator
Pierce will present the claims and advan
tages of Minneapolis before the national
committee. Ex-Governor Foraker arrived
and is quartered at tlfe Arlington, and his
apartments have a continuous overflow of
callers. The governor has not had time
to look over the field, but says he feels
confident that Cincinnati will win the
prize. He will make the address for Cin
cinnati instead of Major McKinley. The
Cincinnati delegation are unable to say
what vote they will get on the start, but
thins the voles will be pretty well scat
tered.
Senators
Omaha in to .Stay.
John M. Thurston said today that Omaha
was in the race to say until the last, and
first place was ter only object. She was,
he said, io no combinations and was not
in any second place deal. In the .pinion
of the Omaha people no city will have
more than eight votes to start with and a
number of ballots will be cast before
great change in the vote will be made.
The San Francisco men say they have
secured pledges aud will go iuto the
test well prepared, and will take the lead
at the beginning and keep it throughout
the contest, and as a natural consequence
will have the next national Republican
convention at San Francisco.

Ct I,
Th# Metropolis Is Discouraged.
M. H. DeYoung, of the San Francisco
Chronicle, says the question of distance
has entirely disappeared In the minds of
the delegates, and the offer made by San
Francisco and the cheap rates from all
points of the country make San Francisco
a desirable city. The Detroit committee
have assurance of second choice and they
think there is now no first choice and that
New York, San Francisco and Cincinnati
are out of the race. New York, which has
been considered by the other delegations
as not making any great effort for the con
veution, held a meeting last night. Sena
tors iliscock and Hawley and Hon J. S.
Fassett will make the speeches for New
York. The Impression prevails that New
* ° rk 18 discouraged over the outlook.
Tbe committee was called to order at 11
o clock this morning by Chairman Clark
son, and one hour is being allowed each
city for speeches in its behalf but It
quite likely the hour allowed will not be
consumed by some of the delegates.

NEW JERSEY AT THE FAIR.

TKESTON, Nov. 23.—The site for the New
Jersey building at the Chicago fair has
been selected by Governor Abbett, Gen

Thomas Smith, of the national commis
B1 state aides.

Colonel Davis, director general of t he fair,
and in his company they visited the
ground allotted to the states. It is adja

States building will stand, ln its rear will

ernor Abbett said:
"It is our object to make it a distinctive

set it up here aud so build it that it can be
taken apart, shipped to Chicago and there
set up on the spot we have chosen. Noth
ing will be in It, so far as is possible, that
was not made in New Jersey, and we
think we can have it built distinctively of
New Jersey products and manufactures
and by New Jersey workmen.
After the fair it is proposed to take it
apart, bring it back to thiB state and ont
it up at Sea Girt, or some equally public
plat*, where it can be examined bv our
people. "We found the fair much further
advanced than we expected," continued
the Kovernor "The skeleton* mnnv

flooring ready to he placed in the large

ascertained that Edison would be allowed

building for the display of his wonderful
inventions and in all probability his dis

the fair was not located in New York, but
as congress has decided otherwise 1 think
every state should do all in its power to

MR. SHEPHERD ARRESTED.
Mr. Sntton Charges Him with Having
Destroyed Hie Home.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Nov. 33— W. B.
Shepherd, a wealthy contractor of this
city, whose mysterious disappearance from
home last January created a sensation
throughout the whole country, arrived
here late Saturday night. His coming
was awaited, hut In some manner he
eluded those who were watching for hi
and weDt quietly to his home. Ato o'clock
Sunday morning he was aroused from his
slumbers by three detectives. He
placed under arrest and taken to the office
of J ustice Davidson, where he was charged
with alienating the affections of Mayor
Sutton's wife. The prisoner refused to
make any statement, and was held in *10,
000 bail for trial. The arrest has caused
a decided sensation. For five months after
Shepherd's disappearance it was thought
he was dead, and had been the victim of
foul play.
One day in May last he startled the
whole community by sending a telegram
to a friend here, stating that he was alive
and living in Indianapolis A friend went
to that city, and found Shepherd lying
ill at one of the hotels. Then it began to
be whispered that there was a woman ln
the case, which fact, as well as the cause
of his long absence, has just been made
apparent.

McCarey drank a great deal of whisky
Saturday night and Sunday morning. His
appeurnnoc at the bridge was at 8:20
o'clock, lie stood at the New York eu
trance to the south roadway until a wagon
turned in from the street. He climbed on
the back and the driver ordered him off.
He walked back muttering.
McCarey next tried the Brooklyn end of
the bridge, and asked James Ross, a young
pedd i er wholivesonYorkstrect.Brook

way. McCarey got in and stood up.
The old gray horse pulled the load slow

start* made it difficult for McCarey to
keep his balance. In the shadow of tho
arch he sat down and pulled hU trousers
down over his shoe tops. He took pieces
of twine from his pocket and tied hia
trousers tightly around his ankles,
When the wagon was approaching the
center of the span McCarey said something
in an undertone.
"What are you going to dot" said Ross,

I)r. McGlynn reviewed the history of his

interview in which there was nothing

charity was asserted to be the remedy for
the poverty of the masses; because he
taught and failed to retract the economic
doctrine that the natural bounties belong
to the community aud their reutal value

he said. "When the vicar general died I
said that if I had my way he would get a

CRISP STOCK IS BOOMING.
The Georgia Man Kald to Re Quite Sure
of the Speakerahtp.
Washington, Nov. 38 —Crisp and Mills,
the two leading candidates for speaker,
are here. Crisp stock has taken another
big jump upward in cousequeace of tho
New York visit. The Crisp men are confi
dent that their mnu is now a sure winner.
They do not seem to have a doubt that ha
will lie elected on the first ballot. He has
pledged to him, they say, 107 votes that
can lie counted on. Mr. Crisp's friends
indignantly deny that there has been any
thing like a "ileal" in his interest in New
York. They say that Tammany as an or
ganization is for him. The Tammany con
gressmen are for him, but so are moat of
the Democratic congressmen from the
•tale outside of New York city.
Mr. Mills' supporters, however, are not
discouraged. They still stick to it that
their man will show up at the caucus with
enough votes to elect him. All the other
candidates, McMillan, Springer aud By
num, are still in the race, and there seems
no reason to doubt that the two former at
least will stay In to the end.
NO RETRACTION FROM BRIGGS. SI
ïhe Presbyterian Divine Stand* by Car*
'* Teaching*«
Brooklyn, Nov. 33 —Rev. Dr. Charles
A. Briggs lectured at the Church of the
Covenant last night on "The Bible and
the Church as Fountains of Divine Au*
thority."
Speaking of Newman, Dr. Briggs said:
"The late Cardinal Newman was the rep*
resentative churchman of our day — a
man of high culture, of deep insight la
the things of God, a saintly man if there
ever was such. If it be heresy to take
»uch a man at his word and say that he
found divine certainty through the church,
t glory in such heresy. I would rather
follow him into the presence of my maker
than risk the companionship of those
charitable men who would exclude him
from the kingdom of Goff.
"The church is plainly a great fountain
of divine authority, and those who deny
this take away front the Presbyterian
church the only ground for its existence."
