ClarliHon Secretary Hum phreys lte-Ilected Tlio Resolution Adopted Pa rude and Reception. Cincinnati, April 2!5. The delegates to the convention of Republican clubs were slow m as sembling yester day, and it was 11 q'clock when President John M. Thurston called the meet ing to order. After a neat lit tle speech, he said that a num ber of communi cations had been received from eminent mem bers of the party who were un able to bo pres- joun m. tiiukston. cut, and would be read by Mr. Barnes, of New York. The first letter was from the Hon. W. M. Evarts, of New York, who wrote congratulating the convention on i s auspicious gathering. Letters followed from President Harrison, Hon. John Sherman, Gen. Russell A. Alger, Hon. Charles Foster, secretary of the treasury; Hon. Redfield Proctor, secretary of war; Hon. Ellis H. Roberts, of New York; Congressman Boutello and several others. While Mr. Barnes was reading the let ters the boxes containing the tin plate souvenirs made at ex-Congressman Nied ringhause's factory in St. Louis were brought on tho stage. The convention cheered loudly and many sprang forward to get them, and the reading of the let ters was interrupted. On motion it was decided that the Mis souri delegates should distribute the sou venirs, of which there were about 1,500. The souvenirs were labeled "American Tin-Plate, 1891, Made by tho Manufac turers of Granite Ironware, St. Louis Stamping Company." A long dispatch of several pages from Gen. Clarkson, dated Boston, was then read. It was a strong Republican docu ment, demanding mainly the protection of industries, condemning the aggrega tion of capital when it oppresses the poor, and demanding the same security for the poor nero on the banks of the Yazoo as the millionaire on tho Hudson. Clarkson's letter was a succinct, elo quent presentation of issues which will be prominent in 1892. The report of the credentials commit tee. There was a minority report against allowing chairmen of delega tions to cast votes for absent members. This was carried. The report of the credentials commit tee was then adopted. The committee on resolutions report ed. The first paragraph eulogizes Gen. Sherman, Admiral Porter and Secretary Windom. President Harrison's administration is endorsed as wise, statesmanlike and pa triotic, worthy the admiration of the country, while his attitude toward alien residents is just, and commands the ad miration of the world. Speaker Reed's course is heartily en dorsed. The protective tariff idea is, of course, endorsed, as is reciprocal trade, which will not interfere with protec tion. Liberal pensions for soldiers and sail ors aro commended. On the subject of the admission of for eigners is tlio following: "Recent events have made more apparent than ever before tho necessity for exercising the sovereign right inherent m our na tion, as in all others, to use discrimina tion in the admission of foreigners as residents in this country. We therefore recommend such changes in our laws as will effectually prohibit tho immigration of Dauners and criminals." The Federal election law was indorsed and the Republican press of the country was referred to as a powerful factor in disseminating Republican ideas and doc trines. Gen. Drake, of Iowa, presented the report of the league work, which advised that the work of the league should be carried even into the school districts of all doubtful states, and that there shall be state and deputy organizers. There was a rather oratorical breezo over the appointment of a committee to investigate tlio proposed incorporation of the league. Thero was some misunder standing and also some doubt, if it was necessary to have an incorporation, but the motion carried. Election of officers came next. Judge Powers, of Vermont, nominated for president J. b. Clarkson, say ing that an or gunizor was needed, a mem ber who could raise tho "tin" if necessary, and such a man is John S. Clark boii. Tho con v o n t i o n was wild with ap plause. Con gressman Houk, o f Tennessee, seconded the no mination. Sen ator Matthews, J. s. clarkson of Illinois, nominated President Tracy, of tho state league. However it was enerally understood that Tracy would o withdrawn, and that Clarkson would be niade'unanunous. Chairman Thurston took tho floor and eaid it was a critical timo in the history of the league; that it could only be mde. a success, by electing Clarkson. Me eulogized tho Iowa Organizer as also a young man. He referred to Clark son's defeino of the league before the unfriendly National committee. Senator Matthews then withdrew Tracy's name, and Clarkson was unan imously chosen with enthusiasm. President Thurston mado a farewell speech, and W. W. Tracy was made president pro tern, owing to Clarkson's absence. For secretary A. B. Humphreys, of New York, the present secretary; John J. Chester, of Ohio, and Theodore Staub, of Philadelphia, were named. Hum phreys was elected on the first ballot. Lastnighc a reception was given the visiting delegates at the armory. Tho parade to the armory was greatly interfered with by a drenching rain. GAMBIAS' OLD KING To Ho TiutKlit u Leison llo'll Not Soon Forget ly tlio ltrltlfdi. Loncon, April 23. Advices received here from Bnthurst, the capital of Gam bia, tho British West African colony, seem to show that Great Britain has another "little war" upon her ..hands. The native King of Gambia, it appears, has for some time past been in a somo wliat disturbed condition of mind, and has been, consequently, committing or allowing to be committed a number of depredations and abuses, from which the British colonists were the sufferers. Tho British administrator, or governor of Gambia, Mr. Gilbert Thomas Carter, C. M. G., put up with the king's con duct a" long as possible, and finally the administrator sent an envoy in tho per son of a prominent English official up the Gambia river to the town which the native king makes his headquarters. This envoy was charged with the mis sion of informing the King of Gambia that he must behave himself and see that his subjects behaved themselves in future or else he might expect a visit of a disciplinary nature from the marine forces of the Queen of Entrland. Tlio envoy faithfully carried out his orders and communicated tho admini strator's views to the king. The latter however, does not seem to have been at all alarmed by the administrator's threats, for ho ordered the English envoy to bo seized and bound, which was promptly done. Tho king then gavo in structions to the effect that the unfor tunate envoy was to be sent back to Bathurst in a manner which would be a warning to all other English envoys who might venture up the Gambia river. Thereupon by tho king's directions, portions of the envoy's cheeks and por tions of his thighs were cut out by the king's bodyguard, and later on the envoy and the pieces of flesh cut from his body wero sent back to the administrator at Bathurst. With tho envoy and the pieces of flesh the king sent Mr. Carter the following terse message: "This is the king's answer." The British administrator has taken prompt steps to send the king a suitable reply. Three British gunboats have already ascended the Gambia river to avenge tne outrage upon tne envoy.

There were extra guards on the train, for Tuesday night, near Casa Grand, 6ixty miles from Yuma, a stage coach from Florence was held up by train rob bers. The men got away with Wells, Fargo & Company's treasure box, but let the passengers escape. There was no alarm for the president's train, but it was thought best to increase the guard while going through the sand desert.

M. White, of Los Angeles, Col. C. F. Crocket, vice presi dent of the Southern Pacific railroad, and Mr. Stump, chairman of the Repub lican committee. Governor Markham made an address of welcome on behalf of the people of the state. Ho assured the president that the citizens of California fully ap preciated the efforts he had made in order to visit tho coast, but expressed confidence that the distinguished guest and party would feel repaid when they saw the wonderful features so peculiar to the state. "And sir," he continued, "permit me to say that, though we are hundreds of miles from the National capital and separated from the people of the east and south by what may seem endless plains and impassable mountains, yet we aro in close sympathy with them in all National affairs and aro exceedingly proud of the iosition we occupy in the great sisterhood of states over which you have been called to preside." The governor outlined the features of various sections of the state through which the president would pjis on his way northward calling attention to the remarkable development of natural re sources of these sections, especially of the southern part of the state, within the past ten years and in closing requested the president to take particular notice of the great lack in California of National public improvements; of the extensive shipping interests of the state and her great coast line almost defenseless and almost without harbors of refuge, except at San Diego and San Francisco, either of which could accommodate the com merce of the world, but located nearly COO miles apart.

A new steamship lino is proposed by a number of northern ship owners, and the Pan-American Steamship company has recently been chartered to open a line of steamers from Mobile and Galveston,to southern ports. Mobile stands second among the gulf ports in depth of water over the bar, and is believed to offer great advantages as a shipping port for Central and South America.
