a Breath ol Factional Trouble Between
McKlnley and Foraker.
Columbus, Ohio, Maroh 10 When
the republican state convention is
called to order in the Grand opera
house at 4 o'olock this afternoon, Sen.
atoi-elect Foraker will bo named as
temporary chairman by acclamation,
and with equal unanimity, John J?.
Borden, of Fainesuille, will be elected
as secretary and Howard Mannington,
of Meohanlosburg, as sergeant-at-arms.
The hoar set for the calling to order ef
the convention has been established by
preoedent, in order that the" meetings
ot the delegates from lbs various con
gressional districts for the 'selection of
a now state : central committee, and
memoeriof the various committees of
the convention, may bs held during
tne afternoon. . .
In and about the Neil house and
Chittenden hoteir the' delegates and
other political workers are swarming,
this morning, but everything is peace
and harmony, and there is not a breath
on the surfaoe of the alleged factional
trouble between'the friends of McKln
ley and those of Foraker, concerning
which so much has been said and writ

A New Party to Ride to Power en Water
and the Whit Metal.
Pittsburg, Pa., Maroh 10, The new
national parry will hold a political con.
(erence here, commencing to-day, to
formulate a platform. The movement
was inaugurated last year, in this city,
by a number of temperance workers of
this vicinity. The object of this so
ciety is to advocate the abolishment of
the liquor trallio. This party will
aim to unite the free silverites and
prohibitionists. It is dissatisfied with
the prohibitionists because they do
not advocate free silver. The leaders
of this new movement, which, a wag
has called a "solution of silver," thns
delicately biting off its aqueous char
acteristic, will put up a full presidential
ticket, which will be , nominated at a
convention to be held in May.'

Jamieson and his associates were, to
day, arraigned in court, char;ed with
invading Transvaal. During the pre
liminary hearing, the prisoners dis
played much bravado and wen treated
by the police as heroes, but the speeches
that followed from the prosecuttor's
bench indicated a firm determination
to convict them. Apparent firmness
from this - unexpected source has de
veloped a feeling Of uneasiness anions
