New Mexico was seeking six ddlegates in stead of two, and she succeeded in getting what she wanted. Confusion and excitement were flung into a conference of silver men today almost at the outset. An abortive end. lug of the whole movement seemed imminent but the final success achieved was all the greater by the contrast. The explosion came from a premature sugges tion that the caucus proceed to talk over the matter of candidates. Instantly there was a hubbub. "It's no use," "Couldn't agree," "Too close to the con nention now," and dozens of similar com ments were heard. An understanding among the leading spirits in the confer ence was that an effort should be male to concentrate the silver votes under the lead of Colorado solidly for Gorman. The practical refusal of the caucus to even consider the matter much less to unite upon a candidate was a disagree able surprise, but those who were chiefly instrumental in getting the caucus to gether adroitly avoided forcing the issue at the beginning that threatened if then pressed to precipitate perhaps irretriev able dissension. Instead of jamming ahead roughshod and securing a candi date, efforts were ostensibly bent toward producing a silver plank for which all present would pledge themselves to stand through thick and thin. The dulcet eloquence and quick intel ligence of Patterson of Denver was brought into play and under his skilful piloting harmony as big as a rnountamn soon began to loom into view. lie care fully avoided any mention of presidential candidates and urged a full expression from every man present as to what should he lone ani] the hest method of going about it. In place of an angry debate ensuing as to the titnesa or un fitness of uifterent candidates the forty two delegates present. as ii result of Patterson' delicate manoeuvering. wi-r soon engaged in an earnest but harmless discussion of the phraseol ,gy of a silver plank that could le pushed through by the platform committee and the course to be pursued when the platform reached the convention. All the intricacies of silver legislation were apparently shown in three mortal hours of speech luaking that followed, by every man from the Rocky mountains that came to Chicago ii tlied with an address on the silver nuestion. The roundup caie in the form of a i-it tion to appoint I committee of one from each state represented to help fraimie the much discussed plank. The motion was carried and by this time the inclination to pugnaciousness so early ii the pro ceedings had thoroughly evaporated and the distribution of honors in the frori of places on the committee helped to molli fy those who doubted that anything after all was t co me of the caucus. Seizing ii favorable opportunity Pat terson again took the floor and after pointing tint how much depended upon united action gradually led up to the statement that he had originally been it Hill man but of late he had beeime con. vinced that the most available mtan from (2P C~'dN a silver standpoint for a candidate favor able to the silver interests ano who had aroused the least antagonism and was the most likely to win was Gorman of Maryland. When Patterson's remarks were reinforced by O')onnell, another Colorado delegate of marked ability, who proclaimed himself an original Gor man nian, the temper of the caucus to ward the Maryland senator began to show symptoms of a decided warming up. Clark of Montana helped on the boom. The Montana delegates were not slow to fall into line and the representa tives forming the remainder of the con ference after much canvassing of possibilities, of balloting in the con vention put themselves on record by de claring one after another a preference for (Gormun or a williness to unite in his support. When the patient manipula tion and infinite tact of the leaders in the caucus had been finally crowned with due reward 'in adjournment was at once taken subject to call. The net result. of the pledges made. if carried out. is the corralling of ex actly 42 votes for Gorman on.the first ballot. These votes are to come from Colorado, Montana, Idaho. Nevada. Ptah, Now Mexico. Arizona and Wyo ming. Those active in the caucus. claim that its action will directly influence thirty other votes in different delegations, making a total of 70 for Gorman as an outcome of the day's work by the silver men.

Ni:w 1Yoaa, June 2O.- -The World idem.i will say enitorially tomorrow: "The New York delegation to Chicago tied itself with a resolution to support senator Hill so long as he was a candi date for the presidency. Senator Hill is not a candidate but is simply holding the delegation together as a method of heating Mr. Cleveland, and it is now a forlorn inti futile hope. The delegation was elected ostensibly to secure the nomination of Hill, not to prevent that of any one wlse. The nomination of Hill has long been seen to be wholly improbable. It is now known to be Impossible.

The populous state of Illinois. high in the aiphabetical list. has decided to cast its 48 votes for Grover Cleveland. and thus one more state which has been so long lingering in the doubtful list has been aihdel to the Cleveland column.

Another knight-errant who for .2 hours has proudly worn the garments otf political iosasibilities. reml'oveI s his iegalia tonight and assumns i molelt e place among the Cleveland lieutenants. For the first time since the opening of the fray. Senator I ilornian avows his be lief in the nomination 'f ex-President Cleveland and while he speaks leorten tioiusly if the dangers of sucht a result he waves from him the ambition that has haunted his niovementis for the past three days and declares that no friend of his must enter his name in the presi dential list. "1 do not think Cleveland's nomination advisable," said the senator from Maryland, "but as matters now stand it seems inevitable." In this terse sentence Gurman reviews the contest and -xpresses his resignation to the in evitable. Hut there are two men who stand undaunted, side by side with Grover Cleveland in the race for presi dential honors and few wen have the temerity to challenge the sincerity of their position. Senator Hill of New York with the 72 votes of the Eupire state behind him and Governor Holes of lowa, secure in the fealty of :Il devoted supporters. are still indiomitablc factors in the presiden tial contest, be the result humiliation what it may. There have been nany rumors that Taminany has been exerting its seductive wiles on favorite stirs of other states to hold secure their waver ing forces in the hope that '1ainniany wouli at last iniie tii thel west with its 72 votes for Palmer or Morrison. or Car lisle. or lira)y, but Taiiiany leaders still out warn ly profege allegiance to the cause of David B. iiill and the gradual cinvietion is f' rciti it-elf upon every miniI that the nomination of Cleveland, if nominated he be, will meet the eloquent protest from the Eimpire state by thi 72 votes of New Yotrli being 'I / BDOiAC E hoEL cast for the distinguished senator. lhii old proverb that history repeats itself is finding frequent repetition among Clevi land people tonight. It is reneininered that exactly two weeks ago at the Min neapolis national conventi 'i the anti Harrison members of the national '0ni mittee defeated the Harrison contingent and decided upon Fassett of New York as temporary chainran of the i' n vention. Fussett was ieie of the most earnest of anti- Harrison lie ple, and yet the national nomnittei' decided upon him for temporary ihair man in the face of the convention whiuh was three-fifths for Harrison and he nas allowed to be seated without a protest. Two days later. however. on the trial oi strength, the anti-Harrison people were defeated and on the day following the president was triumphantly nominated. All this was called to the public's mind by Cleveland and it is stated that the YO\tN~iu V FLOH:E. program will repeat itself in the p resent democratic national convention. The se lection of Owens by the national com mittee they hold to be but the augur of defeat of the politicians by the masses of the party. and predict with great con fidence, the nomination of the ex-presi dent on Wednesday next. In another respect is there a parallel between the two conventions. The dele gates from the silver states two weeks ago allied themselves with the anti Harrison forces and bitterly opposed the president's renomination. Today the delegates fromi the silver states are for the most part arrayed against the nomi nation of ex-President Cleveland and have turned to the south and east in search of ia ombination which will de feat his nomination. In one or two states these overtures were successful in winning over delegates to lioes as opposed to I'leveland. South Carolina this morning decided to go for }Soies the western candidate as the best man with whom to beat Cleveland. to who:e nomi nation they are bitterly hostile. Cleveland men are straining every nerve to add to their strength on the tirst ballot and wherever it is possible to consolidate a stute dill'gation and have it present a solid front they ire doing it. Their greatest work is being exerted in the delegations whiere the I leveland entiment is preponderant. At great deal of pressure was brought by them on I orman to prevent the use of that gentleman's name as one of the opposing I candidates. Today they employed every means at their command to induce (;or man to publicly announce that he was not a candidate and would not enter th3 tield. Senator Carlisle was less doubt ful about Cleveland's strength in Ne v York and is now favorable to his renom ination. Evidence of the careful muethod the Cleveland people are pursuing was ailorded at it meeting of the Ferment delegation when the unit rule was adopted and a a solitary anti-tleveland vote therein made to count for Cleve land. ireuet lEihuciacna oif the lti.iee Men. : .

When the chairman made the announcement to the delegation the room rang with the wildest of cheers.
