Depew’s mail will now be smaller and lass interesting than it was before the Chicago convention. Senator Cullom, of Illinois, is reported to be ill. No doubt he is, and so are several other senators. Sherman, Allison, Hawley and Ingalls, for instance. The Philadelphia scientists say the men in that city are becoming smaller. No doubt the scientists have seen Mayor Fitter since the republican nomination. Gov. Gordon will deliver the Fourth of July oration at Macon. The celebration will be under the auspices of the public ibrary and historical society of that city. Hon. Rufus E. Lester accepts the demo cratic nomination for Congress from the First district. He did not seek it, but ap preciates the honor conferred upon him as highly as if he had been an applicant for it. While the senators swelter over the ap pointment of Mr. Fuller, and perhaps en gage in heated discussions concerning It, Mr. Fuller himself will manage to keep cool. He has gone, with his wife ami one of his “nine muses,” to a cool spot in Maine. Mrs. Mary P. Benuoman, of Indiana, is dead. She was 119 years old. It is not asserted that she saw Washington, but she was a good Methodist for seventy-five years, and she reared a largo family of children, each of whom made a good citizen, and this is honor enough for her. Mrs. Langtry becomes quite aggressive in denying the reports of her coming mar riage to Freddy G-ebhardt. “It’s a pack of lies, as usual,” she writes a reporter, in an swer to his request for her statement in the matter. If words are worth anything, Mrs. will not become Mrs. Gobhardt very soon. Mr. George W ChihLs, of Philadelphia, has cause to be proud of the manner in which he was treated by the Chicago convention. A few months ago Mr. Childs said he would not accept a nomination for president if it were offered him, and the Convention took him at. his word, so that no vote was cast for him. That is why Mr, Childs should feel proud. The shut down of an iron and steel con cern in Elmira, N. Y., temporarily, gives the New York Tribune a very fine oppor tunity, which it does not neglect, of laying the blame to the Mills bill and the demo cratic administration. That sort of thing is to be expected from the Tribune and other republican organs, but the public will soon learn to place no reliance upon such statements. The Hon. William F. Cody, otherwise known as “Buffalo Bill,” is about to close an unusually successful engagement in this country and will desert his wild western ■how for a season and make a journey through the unexplored regions of New Mexico and Arizona. He will l>e accom pauied by several English noblemen aud gentlemen prominent in English politics, and by several distinguished Americans, among whom is Col. Thomas Ochiltree, a Texan who. like the father of his country, couldn’t got his cousent to prevaricate. The Hon. William seems to be going to foot the bills, and ho is abundantly able to do so. A spring in Lewis county, W. Va., is at tracting much attention by its peculiar freaks. A great volume of water issues from the ground, aud is profiled to a height of '£> feet by gas, the noise of the escaping gas ami water being heard for miles around. At times the water suddenly disappears, loavingjn dry hole of alleged un fathomable depth, and hours, even days, elapse before it reappears. At night an ig nited match thrust into the water wiil cause a display of flashing light which is said to be exquisitely beautiful. The spring sos a resultof the earthquake of 1880 aud if it is as wonderful as it is alleged to lie, it is somewhat singular that this is the first that has been heard of it outside of its Im mediate vicinity. T he Republican Ticket. The republicans have nominated Renj : min Harrison, a western lawyer and poll tician, for I’res,dent, and L -vi P. Morton, a New York banker an! politician, for vice-president It cannot lie said that these gentlemen make a strong ticket. As far as the world knows they are men of ir. .eg rity and ability, and have c can records, but neither of them is a great man, nor a particularly strong man in any direction. Gen. Harrison ha- ben a presidential can didate for a number of j'-ars, but oat side of his personal friends it js doubtful if anybody ever seriously thought he would be nominated. There were no strong rea sons why he should be. It is true his grand father was president, and he is a resident < f a doubtful state, but w;ll the fact that he had a distinguished grandfather make him a strong candidate, and is it certain that he can carry his state! Distinguished ancestry doesn't count for much in politics in this country, but if Gen. Harrison can carry hi* state there was not wanting an excuse for nominating him. The purpose is not to convey the impression that he is a third rate man, because he is not. On the con trary, when he was a member of the senate he was ranked as one of the strong men of that body, but he is far from being the equal of Blame or Sherman, and is certainly not as popular as Gresham. Gen. Harrison has no magnetic qualities, and there is nothing in his record that is calculated to arouse enthusiasm in his party or to inspire it with confidence in the suc cessful issue of the campaign. He is as cold in his manner as Sherman, and he lacks 8b : man’s ability. It is doubtful if his life affords much material for camp iign litera ture. and it will require a great deal to arouse much enthusiasm among the disap pointed admirers of Blaine. Mr. Morton was put on the ticket with the hope, perhaps, that he would help to carry New York. He will not render much assistance unless he contributes freely to the canqiaign fund. He is a very rich man, and has always been ready to put his hand into his pocket whenever his party needed financial assistance. The ticket is not a very popular one, and it will not lie at all surprising if murmurs of dissatisfaction with it are heard. Of course the party newspapers will make the best of it, and will pretend, perhaps, that no better nominations could have been made; but when they consider how popular the democratic ticket is, they will not feel like saying much about the popularity of their own ticket. It would not be difficult to name a dozen republican tickets that would compare favorably with that named at Chicago. Stanley’s Fate. The fate of Stanley, the African explorer, is clouded in doubt. Those who are best qualified from their knowledge of the coun try he undertook to traverse and its inhabi tants are still hopeful that he is alive, and will reach his destination. It is about a year since he left the junc tion of the Congo and Aruwhimi rivers to go to the relief of Emin I’asha, who was then supposed to be at Wadilai, a distance of 500 mile-. The route was through a country almost unknown to Stanley, anil as It is a wilderness, and portions of it inhabited by hostile tribes, it was not expected that he would reach his destination in lass than two months, even if he met with no unexpected obstructions. He was well prepared for the journey. The testimony is that it was the host equipped expedition that ever attempted to accomplish any object in Central Africa. It comprised ."50 natives and four Eurojjeans. It had plenty of provisions and ammu nition. A depot of supplies was established on the Congo, and it was arranged that the great Arab chief, Tipoo Tib, should follow along the line of march with additional supplies in order to be of assistance in case of disaster. The last news heard from Stanley, that is regarded as reliable, is tliat he is teleagueri in a mountainous region, that ho is virtually without supplies and that at least a third of his force is ill with fever. It is also stated that Stanley Ls suffering from a wound in the shoulder, caused by an arrow. Assistance was sent to him last January by Tippoo Tib, but nothing has been heard from the relief force. Of course Stanley has met with a great misfortune of some kind, but what it is or the extent of it, is not known with any de gree of certainty. The report that he is surrounded by enemies in a m§untainous region may to correct, but entire reliE- 'e is not placed upon it. The English government is being urged to fit out an expedition for Stanley’s relief, but Is apparent that if his situation is as precarious us it is represented to be, assist ance will have to he sent to him quickly to do him any good. It is rumored that the whole region in which Stanley is supposed to lie is in a state of revolt against Europeans, and that the Arabs and their alies in the neighborhood of Boko Nyassa have determined to drive out of the country all the traders and mis sionaries. They are irritated at the check which has been placed ujxin their slave trading operations. If they are not dealt with promptly and firmly they will undo all that has been accomplished by traders and missionaries during the last twenty years. While negro slavery has been abolished in Brazil, Indian slavery is still in force. A trader in Brazil says “that in the wildest rogions of the tributaries of the Amazon bands of India Rubber gat borers carry on an iniquitous traffic with many Indian tribes, from whom they acquire captives from other tribes. The lawlessness of their proceedings is fully admited by the Brazil ian government, but over the vast areas in the distant regions through which they roam it is absolutely impossible to maintain any chock over them.” The summer liegira is under full headway all over the country. Many people are off for Europe, and a great many more are sniffing the cool breezes that float over the mountain and seaside resorts. The clergy men have deserted their puipits for awhile, and the actors und actresses have turned off the footlights and departed for cooler spots. Everybody who can has fled from the heat, and the landlord at the summer resort re joices greatly. Summer travel and recre ation seein to iucrouso with each year. There will be no lack of money in betting circles to be put on Mr. Cleveland’s election, if those who believe in Cleveland’s star can get takers. The Chicago Times says Mr. George Everhart, of that city, has been authorized by a New York gentleman to place #2,000,000, in bets of $2,000 and up wards, on Mr. Cleveland against the repub lican ticket. Here’s a chance for republi can enthusiasfn to show upon what **t is based. THE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY, JUNE 2fi, 1888. Defeat of the Blaine Programme. It is quite safe to say that, the Chicago romwithw was not satisfied with its work, and that the republican party is not satis '*d with it. Republicans in all parts of the country wanted Blaine nominated, not nly because they have a profound respect for his ability, but, also, because they admire the man. They believe that, not withstanding his defeat in ISS4, he could come nearer being elected than any ther man ho could be nominated, and with him as their leader they would have gone into the campaign with a confidence and enthusiasm which will bo wanting under Gen Harrison's leadership. It was clearly the purjiose of some of the ablost politicians and leading newspapers to nominate Blaine, and there is no doubt that Blaine wanted the nomination. They did not want him to engage in a struggle for the nomination, and he did not want a nomi nation obtained in that way, because they knew, and he knew, that it would make him enemies, and he could not reasonably hope for a successful issue of the campaign if the number of his enemies in the party were increased. There is no doubt that Mr. Elkins’ state ment, that Blaine was willing to take the nomination only after it had been clearly demonstrated that no other candidate was the choice of the convention, is approxi mately correct, but the friends of Blaine and the friends of the other candi ' lutes will never agree, perliaps, as to whether the plan of the Blaine leaders ad mitted of a free and fair expression of the con vention with respect to the other candidates. Blaine’s friends will say it did and his opponents will say it did not. .As that plan was developed it looked very muck as if the convention were being skill fully handled so as to prevent any one of the avowed candidates from getting the nomination, and to so thoroughly convince them that they couldn’t get it that they would withdraw and leave the field clear for the unanimous nomination of Blaine. There is even ground for supposing that Mr. Depew was acting in harmony with the Blaine leaders. He knew that ho could not get the nomination, and yet he persisted in lieing a candidate. When he thought the time had come for him to act, he withdrew. Was it not expected that his example would influence other candidates who were acting in good faith, and that believing their pros pect for getting the nomination was hope loss they too would withdraw? It certainly looks that way. The plan of the Blaine managers failed because the other candidates got at last a clear understanding of the plan, and, be lieving they were not being dealt with fairly and sincerely, determined to remain in the contest as long as they could get a vote. This determination settled the ques tion of Blaine’s nomination. It effectually prevented him from getting a unanimous nomination, and as that was the only kind that he was figuring for, or could afford to take, his managers virtually ceased their efforts in his behalf and let the convention take its course. There is no doubt that he could have had a majority nomination. The Two Conventions. The democratic and republican national conventions of 1888 have passed into history. They were both held in this month und but two weeks apart. The democratic conven tion was an orderly, dignified body. It was in session only three days. From its begin ning to its ending there was no strife and no unseemly wrangling. It selected its candidates for president and vice president quickly, and adopted a platform without delay that was acceptable to the entire party. The delegates returned to their homes satisfied with thoir work, confident that the party approved of it and thoroughly convinced that tlio ticket they had made would be triumphantly elected. The republican convention was in session an entire week, and it is quite certain that that there Ls a very large element in the party thut is/not satisfied with the ticket it nominated. From the very beginning of its sessions there was a lack of harmony. The Blaine sentiment predominated and more than half the convention desired Blaine’s nomination. There were scheming, wire pulling and a good deal of ugly feeling betweon the outspoken friends of Blaine and the friends of the avowed candidates. The Virginia contest developed a bad feel ing between the delegates from that state, which to some extent extended to the con vention. There were other features of the convention which will not be remembered with pleasure by the delegates, and which will not be devoid of hail effects upon the party during the campaign. The convention felt, doubtless, as it closed its work, that it had no cause to congratu late itself, and it is doubtful if the party is not more hojieless of victory in November than it was before tho convention assem bled. The contrast which the two conventions present is very marked, and will be alluded to frequently and greatly to tho advantage of the democrats, during the campaign. At a conference in Chicago Saturday of representatives of various candidates be fore tho convention, Delegate DeYoung, of California, sail! that if Gen. Harrison were nominated, it would lie utterly impossible to elect him. “He could not possibly carry the Pacific coast,” said Mr. DeYoung, “nor would ho be able to carry any of the larger states where the labor element predomi nates, because he voted against the Chinese bill and treaty and evory phase of it, and liecause he committed the still greater crime of voting to naturalize Chinamen and give them the rights of suffrage.” These remarks were reported by tho Associated Press three days ago. They are evon more interesting now than they were then. In one of his vetoes of private pension bills Mr. Cleveland says; “I believe that if the veterans of the war knew all that was going on in the way of granting pensions by urivate bills they would he more dis gusted than any other class of our citizens." Due thing is pretty certain: if tho repub licans attempt to make capital out of vetoes of pension bills, the facts to wnich President Cleveland refers will be made public. In view of the nomination of Gen. Harri son for President, the following extract from a letter from Senator Ingalls to a member of the Kansas delegation to Chi cago, and dated June 1(5, is interesting: “Sherman, Allison. Harrison, each have records that would be awkward on the tariff, the currency, the Chinese question, etc.” For once the Kansas senator has hit the nail squarely on the head. Richmond, Va., is to have another “wet" and “dry” campaign. It will be held as early as possible iu July, however, and the people will have time to recover from its effects by November. A fierce campaigu is predicted. CURRENT COMMENT. Hardly Any. From the New York Graphic (Ind.) “Foraker," says the Vim correspondent, "was the darling of the convention." Very likely. It's built that waj\ Is there any other crowd in the United States, outside of Ohio, that this mouthing humbug could get himself cheered in* Stronger Than In 1884. From the New Orleans ( Dem .) Mr. Cleveland is the only leader in the country in the past quarter of a century who has found himself s ronger at the end of bis term than at the beginning, whom his party has taken up a second time, who went into the convention with a unanimous vote behind him, and without the slightest speck of opposition. Wicked Chicago. From the NaxhrUte American (Dem.) There must, after all. to some truth in the stories of Chicago's overwhelming wickedness, for surel yno such direful punishment as that now being inflicted on that city in the shape of a prolonged visit of republican delegates would to meted out to any community that was even half way moral. No Corners on Supplies. From the St. J.'ctis Republic (Dem.) Ifurrigh.for Cleveland! Hurrah for Thurman! Hurrah for Lincoln Hurrah for Garfield 1 Hur rah for Arthur! Hurrah for every man, re publican or democrat, who has refused or who refuses now to consent to the infamous doctrine that the American government was established to corner the American market by cutting off the supply and using its taxing power to pro hihit tto consumption of any article or class of articles.

A Colored Delegate from Alabama Telia Col. Youngblood How He Was Reared. Mom the Chicago Xew*. Col. Youngblood is a man almost as large in stature as the dime museums permit to run at large, standing almost seven feet in hight, and he hails from the great state of Alabama and alligators. The colonel is as handsome as he is large, and is the leader of his state delega tion. The colored population of his state swear by him, and the colored delegates won’t crook their Ungers until the great colonel first tlends his. (me 0 t the colored delegates got lost on his way to Chicago, and arrived two days after the delegation had secured comfortable quar ters at the Sherman house. Upon the lost del egate’s arrival he at once sought Col. Young blood, when the following dialogue occurred: “Say. kernel, whar is I gwine ter stay?” asked the colored delegate. “Walk right over there and write your name on the hotel register,” replied the colonel. The delegate did as he was instructed, and then, returning to Col. Y'oungolood, the darkey delegate said: "Say, kernel, I’se pow’ful hongery. Haint had er inoufful of nothin’ since brekfus yister day. Wtiar kin I git sumfm ?” ‘ do there to the clerk and tell him to give you a meal ticket for dinner,” said Col Y'oung blood. The delegate got his meal ticket and was then escorted to the dining-room door. “Now walk right down that aisle and walk into the dining room, take any seat you see vacant and call for what you like best," continued tho genial Ala bama colonel to his confiding colored friend. The delegate walked to tho dining-room door, looked iu, and then walked away, returning to the colonel. "Look heah, kernel.” said the colored dele sate.5 ate. "yo" don’t specks fur me to go iu dat dar inin’-room, do you?” “Why, certainly. You are a delegato from the great state of Alabama to the national re publican convention. (Jo right hack there and get your dinner. The delegate went to the dining room door for the second time, but halted and returned to Col. Youngblood. ‘‘Now see heah, kernel, dom am all white folks in dat dar room, and 1 wasn’t raised dat way. Niggahs don't eat wid white folks whar I was raised. Say, kernel, yo’ jes’ sho’ me whar the kitehen am, and I'll go eat wid de udder niggahs. I kin eat moah and feel a heap better.” Gebhardt and the Lily. From the .Veto York Sun. Frederick Gebhardt and Mrs. Lillie Langtry are to be married in September. This is now deemed certain. They have long been betrothed, but Mrs. I jmgtry will not much liefore the time mentioned be legally free from her present hus band. That has i-een the only reason why Geb hardt and tint beautiful actress have not been wedded long ere this. Her husband refused sev eral overtures for n consent to a separation. He i declined all propositions, and took good care that she should not have the only ground valid in the state of New York on which to obtain a divorce. He is now a hotel keeper at an English seaside resort, and It is five years sioce he and his wife met. At length Mrs. LaDgtry. while in San Francisco last year, acquired real estate there, and made the city her legal residence. That now enables her to put forward a suit for divorce, and this will make her a free woman in August. Any hitch in the proceedings will tie unexpected, and the couple are advised that none is possible. The explicit announcement of matrimony in September for Gebhardt and Mrs. Langtry is said to have been mado a few days ago at a dinner given by Mrs Langtry at her New York residence in West Twenty-third street. Two of the guests were old cronies of Gebhardt, al though they are a decade older than he. On this occasion, somebody offered as a toast, the speedy union of the fair hostess and Gebhardt, who sat in the chair of honor at her right. “Thank you,” Mrs. Langtry responded, ac cording to report, and your good wish is going to be realized soon.” “How soon?” was asked. “May I answer that?" Gebhardt inquired of Mrs. Langtry. She gave jiermission, and he then said that the wedding would occur early in September— possibly a little sooner—in San Francisco, to which city they will journey, according to present arrangements. In July. Mrs. lamgtry and Gebhardt liave purchased adjoining farms, comprising altogether thou sands of acres, in a valley of the Howell moun tains in California. There they will spend their honeymoon, and subsequently the lady's vacations between her seasons on the stage. The estate is described as naturally very beau tiful, taking iu an entire valley, with surround ing hills to romantically shut them out from the rude world. But the pair do not intend to sit down idly in a bower and gaze out raptur ously on a Lake of Como. They will go into farming on a rather extensive scale. There is a vineyard of considerable size on the land, and the farms are plentifully stocked with eattlo, horses, mules and swine, all of which will be for sale. Mrs. Langtry is rich. It is be lieved that beside living very expensively, she has accumulated as much as $200,000. Geb hardt draws an income of $25,000 Ja year*from his father’s estate, and this will soon be*aug mented by renewals of leases at advanced rates. So it is not necessary for them to farm it as a business, nor for Mrs. Langtry to do any more acting, but in both matters they prefer to be active. Mrs. Langtry led an outdoor life until she went on the stage, ami is therefore enraptured with the idea of California hus bandry. As to her theatrical career, she is not only ambitious to excel as an artist, but she tells her friends that sooner or later she will have the direction of a New' Y’ork theater.
