INDIANAPOLIS, June 2S.?Twelve "hundred and forty-one delegates to the National Convention of the Prohibition party will meet in Tomlinsville to-morrow to nominate candidates for President and Vice President. It is generally believed that General Nelson A. Miles will be selected for the head of the ticket although Attorney Alfred L. Manierre. of New York, has active workers in his behalf. The opposition to Miles grows out, of the failure of hte exarmy officer to make a positive declaration that he is identified with the Prohibition party. There are many delegates who will demand this before they will vote for him. The convention will be called to order by Oliver W. Stewart, Chairman of the National Committee. A. G. Volfenbarger, of Nebraska, and 1 AY. C. Calderwood, of Minnesota, will be named for temporary chairman j and temporary secretary, respectively. Robert H. Patton, of Illinois, party candidate for Governor of his State, is being urged for permanent chairman. ' After luncheon the reports of the committees will he made. There are several candidates for the Vice Presidential nomination. Sam P. Jones, evangelist, lawyer and lecturer, of Georgia. Geo. W. Carroll, millionaire oil-well otvner of Beaumont, Texas, Col.

JUDGE GRAY FOR PRESIDENT GROVER CLEVELAND SAID TO HAVE PAVED THE WAV FOR NOMINATION. PLEDGE TO SUPPORT DELAWARE JURIST IF NOMINATED SECURED FROM BRYAN? TAMMANY IN THE DEAL. WILMINGTON", Del., June 2S.? [ According to a story current in political circles here, William J. Bryan has been outgeneraled by Grover Cleveland, and the former President has shrewdly paved the way for the nomination of Judse Gray, said to be his real choice for President, at the Democratic National convention. Josiah Marvel, a prominent lawyer of this city, and originally a strong Bryan supporter, but now one of the closest and most active friends of Judge Gray in bis enorr to iauu me Democratic nomination, has admitted that he spent the night with Bryan in the Hoffman House, in New York, the day before the latter sailed for Europe several months ago, when he secured the promise of Bryan that he would support Judge Gray if he received the nomination at St. Louis. This visit was made at the instance of Mr. Cleveland, who, it is said, desired Bryan's hands securely tied by a promise before he discovered that Gray was Cleveland's real candidate. Judge Gray's friends here who know of this deal consider the nomination already as good as landed for the Delaware jurist.

CLUE TO [HE MLFOUB IS J IT IS RUMORED THAT THE Fl- i NAL DAYS OF THE PRESENT enincu o A C!\ICT NEAR AT HAND. LONDON", June 2S.- ? In Hritisli political circles it is generally agreed that the ftnn 1 days of the present cabinet are fast approaching:. Premier Bui four. it said, will In; unable to he VI his party rose flier ever tho autumn. This was made manifest yesterday. when despite the frantic appeals of Balfour unci his pai ty whips the government only secured a majority of lis on the licensing bill, which is less than one-third of their normal majority. Tlie army question, it is believed, will be the rock on which the govern.merit ship will founder. ft is believed this question will divide the cabinet and cause its dissolution when it comes uj? for voting in September. Then, too, it is thought the army discussion will rally many to the liberal cohorts and bring them to record a majority. Many free trade unionists are supporting the liberals and this support will continue, Lord Devonshire is expected to join Lord Rosebury. tho liberal leader in u few days.
