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

Columbus, Ohio April 15 Repub
lican politlclats of Ohio are awaiting
with eager interest tbe outcome of the
state central committee meeting in

the general belief tbat the friction be.

tbe followers of McKinley, will crop
out with interesting results when the
committee take up tbe question of se.

Foraker people declare tbat if an at
tempt is made in the committee meet

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.

Washington, D...C, April 15 The

day, re-calls tbe curious fact that this
vessel, though a comparatively small
and unimportant addition to the navy,
has been nearly a quarter of a centnry

84, at Cramp's ship-yard, but owing
to the dilatorlness of congress little
progress was made toward her com

sbe was sufficiently completed . to be
taken to Brooklyn, where she bas been
everaince. The last year, however,
