Manderson woud be cxp'oited at this convention Hi Nebraska' favorite son for tbe presidential nomination, but Senator John M. Thurston, who is a McKin luyite, uoder circumstances that are . now a matter of history, took excep tion to this program, and succeeded in cirrying so large a propottiori of tbe delegates to this eveulug's gathering with him l hat the Mandorson following was forced to agree to a compromise to tbe rffect that the resolutions to be submitted shall declare that the repub licacs of Nebraska favor tbe noroiDa tion of William ' McKinley or Charles F. Mandi-'rsou for president, and fur tber providing that General Manderson shall be voted for on tbe informal ballot, unless in the judgment of the ' delegation at the assembling of tbe convention it is apparent that McKin ley will be nominated.

The indications this morning are that there will be a warm debate in tbe committee on resolutions on tbe money plank, but tbe free-coinage republicans will be in so much of a minority in the convention (hat no trouble will be an. ticipated. The financial plank will pledge the party in favor of a dollar that will not depreciate in tbe hands of tbe people, und for the greatest pos sible use of silver as money on the main consideration tbat no dollar shall be authorized by Ibis government that will purchase less or pay less than tbe best dollar in the world.

Al though Governor Bradley', boom for the presidential nomination was ex plicitlv launched through tbe medium of tho resolutions adopted at the meet iner of the republican state central committee, on March 4th, last, it Is an open question this morning whether it will be endorsed by tbe republican state convention which will be called to order this afternoon by Chairman Yerkes. f Since the meeting of the state committee, Governor Bradley's boom bas been punctured by tbe action of several of the district oonrentions in instructing their delegates for McKin ley. A compromise proposition favors- complimentary vote for Bradley, the delegation then to go to McKinley if bis prospeots are good, or, lq tbe even of the selection of an eastern man, to support Governor Bradley - for the second place on the lioket. Congress man Hunter, who managed Bradley's successful campaign, but bas since quarreled with him, is the leading can didnte to bead tbe delegates-at-large. Th Republican Paction!. ' Columbus, Ohio April 15 Repub lican politlclats of Ohio are awaiting with eager interest tbe outcome of the state central committee meeting in session here, this afternoon, because of the general belief tbat the friction be. tween the administration faction and tbe followers of McKinley, will crop out with interesting results when the committee take up tbe question of se. lec.iog an executive committee, .hver since Chairman Crouse issued bis call fr to-day's meeting tbe McKinley forces have been endeavoring to bring abont a postponement of the selection of an executive committee, but the Foraker people declare tbat if an at tempt is made in the committee meet ing, this afternoon, to postpone tbe matter in question, tbey will throw off nil semblauce of good will and make the fight against ex-Governor McKin y openly and above board, Ibe opinion prevails tbat if the controversy is thrust upon the meeting tbe matter will end by deciding the supremacy of one or the other of tbe two factions dividing the republican party in Ohio.
