THE GATHERING OF THE CLANS.
Chicago has been~the neuter or in
terest for days past and as the time
for the meeting of the republican
national convention approached that
interest was intensified by the fact
of t lie great contest about to be waged
between the friends of Grant and
Blaine %vas growiug bitter and even
personal. The friends of Blaine were
determined to break the uuit rule
and Grant’s friends were as deter
mined to enforce it. Upou that poiul
a struggle ensued between the nation
al committee and Cameron, its chair
man, which resulted in an agreement
to leave the question for the conven
tion to set:le. Gtte of the most im
portant of all raided by both
factions was tho oW-of considering
the credentials ot contested delega
tions and the committee on creden
tials were in session many hours and
did not report until Friday. A reso
lution iti the preliminary meeting to
support the nominee ot the conven
tion was adopted. The platform >
condemns the Chinese and recoin ,
uiriids further legislation on the sub
ject It commends Hayes’ adminis
tration aud counsels harmony in the |
parly.

We ouly noted the fact as we <ouud
it r* corded upou the books of the
Fa ft set l reduction works of Canon
City, who are treating the sumo
tailings. The Prospect claims that !
we ate not friendly to Silver Cliff,
but ibis is not the case. We have in
terests at the Cliff, directly uml iudi
rectlv, to the amount of several
thousand dollars, and do not feel as
j cue Prospect does, Hint the lailure ol f
j any one of their stamp mil*s to get •
i the silver out of the ore will kill tin*

the ore must be very high grade ami
that the stamp mill poorly managed.^
