Republican national, Chicago. June 19.
It Is a matter of history that Senator
Sherman sent word to Mr. Blaine last year
after the Toledo convention had ad
journedthat if he (Blaine) wished to be a
candidate he (Sherman) would withdraw
from the field. This shows that there has
been a mutual and friendly understanding
between the two great statesmen of the
nation. All that Mr. Blaine has eaid or
written since has been in accordance with
the understanding then arrived at namely,
that .Mr. Sherman was to be a candidate
and that Mr. Blaine would not be. Mr.
Sherman has pursued a manly and digni
fied course. He aspired to the leadership
ot the republican host in the political
campaign of 18S8; he had an honorable am
bition to be president of the United States,
and no man 'had a better right than he to
entertain such an ambition, as he had char
acter, capacity and experience. All concede
that no man is probably bis equal in the
qualities which a president should possess.
Therefore, In view of all these facts, no
body has even crfBeised the senator for al
lowing it to be understood that be was an
aspirant for the presidency and a candi
date, fairly and squarely, for the nomina
tion. Mr. Blaine has acted quite as honorably.
He has declined to be considered as a can
didate, and he has repeatedly declared that
he could not accept a nomination if it were
tendered him. Hitherto, it would hardly
have been proper for him to have named
the senator as his preference, as it would
have appeared as If he and Mr. Sher
man bad assumed to take the convention's
piop:r work out of its hands. But the
time having come when the senator, as a
candidate, Is without any rival, and es
pecially as It has been asserted that Mr.
Blaine preferred Mr. Depew, it is proper
that Mr. Blaine should make a definite
declaration on this point The following
special telegram to the Cincinnati Times
Star shows so far as its statements may
prove to be true that Mr. Blaine has de
clared his' preference forMr.Shennan. This
Is quite proper, just at this time. It Is a lair
return for the senator's courteous and con
siderate action toward Mr. Blaine last year
and It relieves the situation of all perplex
ity. If Mr. Blaine prefers Sherman, his
friends and partisans will prefer him. The
special Is as follows:
PrrrsBur.o.lTa., Junel3. Chairman B.
F. Jones, of the republican national com
mittee, left last night for Chicago. He had
in his possession a third letter from James
G. Blaine, which he bad jut received from
Kugland, and which is to be read upon the
assembling of the national convention on
In it Mr. Blaine states most emphatically,
that be will not permit the use of his name
in connection with the presidential nomina
tion, and that he would not accept It If it
were tendered him unanimously. He
indicates Senator John Sherman, of Ohio,
as his preference for the head of the ticket,
and pledges bis hearty support to the con
vention nominees In the coming campaign.
In speaking of the third letter, a delegate
to the national convention from Pennsyl
vania said that he knew Mr. Blaine intend
ed to write such a letter, and intimated
that it was the result of a plan agreed upon
between Blaine and Sherman several
months ago, whereby the latter was to re
ceive the presidential nomination and the
former was again to become secretary of
state in case of Sherman's election. It is
also said that Senator M. S. Quay will have
the chairmanship of the national com
mittee. With the Senator as president and Mr.
Blaine as secretary of state we should have
as strong an administration of the govern
ment as the country has ever enjoyed.
So far, so good. What we have said in
the foregoing Is true, except the report
to the effect that Mr. Jones has re
ceived the letter alluded to, in which it Is
luu aataasJsaMSanBaaBaKaafaSWSa - - mt ,. ' - "'"UjM
alleged that Mr. Blaine had expressed his
preference for Mr. Sherman. The Thurs
day papers have a press report to the effect
that Mr. Jones has no such letter. But It
would bo quite proper for Mr. Blaine to
write such a letter, and we have no doubt
It would represent nis real feeling In the
matter. Mr. Jones denies that he has re
ceived such a letter. Perhaps It has, in
In some way, got Into the wrong pocket-
possibly into the pocket of Mr. Jones's
private secretary. But it is certain that
Mr. Blaine has said that his name must not
be presented to the Chicago convention.
and that, if he were nominated, he would
not accept.
There is still, however, apparent, a de
termination to nominate him, whether-or-no.
But it seems to be universally ad
mitted that there Is only one way to secure
this result namely through the with
drawal ot the names of all the other candi
dates, by their friends, with common con
sent. Were he nominated In those cir
cumstances, he could not refuse to accept,
except for some special cause not known to
the people. Should he be so nominated,
and make the race, he would be elected.
What will develop at ChIcago,next week,
nobody knows. Let us hope, confidently,
that patriotic and wise action will be taken,
such action. Indeed, as shall commend it
self to the judgment and hearty and enthu
siastic co-operation of the republicans of
the country.
Mr. C. D. O'Brien is an Irish democrat.
he was a delegate from Minnesota to
St. Louis, and he endeavored to get in a
resolution denouncing the infamous British
extradition treaty indorsed by Cleveland
and sent by him to the United States Sen
ate. But Mr. O'Brien and other Irish
members of the convention wore snubbed
and "sat on," and he now speaks of this
action as follows:
I want every citizen of the United States
to learn of this, and particularly that I

Miller or Thurston to be Temporary
Chairman The Dooms on Exhibition
Conger's Claims for Sherman Three
Hundred Totes on the First Ballot
Report nt Pittsburg that Blaine has
declined In Favor of Sherman.
CnicAC.o, June 4. Quite a number ol
leading Republicans arc already in the city.
General Powell Clayton, of Arkansas; John
C. New, of Indiana, and Cyrus Leland, jr.,
of Kansas, are the latest arrivals. Others
pretentare Clarkon, of Iowa, and Conger,
of Ohio. The point made clear is the prob
able selections for presiding olticers of the
contention. Who would be temporary
chairman, and who for permanent, lias up
to last evening been the deepest sort of a
mystery. It is now pretty certain, appa
rently, that one of the oflicers will be Sen
ator Warner Miller, of New York, the other
John M. Thurston, v. ho heads the delega
tion from Nebraska. Should Miller be
chosen for the temporary chairmanship,
Thurston will be made the permanent
president, andn ice versa. There is some
mention of Senator George F. Hoar, of
Massachusetts, for one of the two places,
but the talk uf him appears to lack defi
niteness. Both Thurston and Miller are
described as men of fine presence, big
voice and able parliamentarians.
The half dozen booms in the city n ere all
on exhibition j estcnlay. Sherman's inter
ests were being industriously looked after
by A. L. Conger, of Ohio, member of the
National Committee. "We shall have
sucli a big vote at the very outset as to
probably dispose of any attempts at com
bination." That was the way Mr. Conger
summed up the situation. He continued:
"While the number of votes polled for Mr.
Sherman on the first ballot will not be an
actual majority, it will be over 300 far in
advance of the" aggregate of any other can
didates, possibly any other two candidates.
Now the vital fact to be considered is that
Sherman, as a second choice, is also de
cidely in the lead. This being the case, we
think we are justified in hoping to make
such a showing on the second or third bal
lots as to settle the matter effectually."
Prominent Republicans ure already ar
riving in the city prejiaratory to the meet
ing of the national convention next week.
Among those already here are lion. B. F.
Jones, of Pittsburg, Cliairmaii of the Na
tional Committee, Hon. John C. New, of
Indianapolis; Murat Halstead, of Cincin
nati, and Ca'uncey L. Filiey, of St. Louis.
A meeting of the National Committee will
be held to-day.
Chairman Jones, when asked regarding
the correctness of a Pittsburg dispatch
stating that he had in his possession a third
letter from James G. Blaine, positively de
clining the nomination under any condi
tions, refused either to deny or to cor
roborate the story.
In an interview last evening Murat Hal
stead said in substance that the Ohio dele
gation was solid for Sherman. "Although,"
said Mr. Halstead, "there may be some
crank, who, desirous of making himself
famous after the fashion of George
William Curtis, may take into his head to
kick over the traces. Foraker will stick to
Mr. Halstead said that he did not think
Blaine's name would be presented to the
convention, and ho firmly believed that
Sherman would be nominated. Sherman,
he says, will probably come to the conven
tion witli three hundred votes, and the rest
will probably come to him after a few
ballots. The great objection to Gresham
lies in the fact that if he were nominated,
he would hae to resign from the bench
and give Cleveland an opportunity to put
in a Democrat to preside over Illinois,
Indiana and Wisconsin. As for Depew,
Mr. Halstead doubts if be can carry the
New York delegation, as Tom Piatt of that
State is for Alger; and besides that Senator
Hiscock has a boom of his own. Blaine is
really the man the New Yorkers want, but
he was undoubtedly sincere in both his
letters, and it is only those who don't know
him thatare shouting for him.
Mr. Halstead does not believe that either
the Prohibitionists or the Labor party will
cut much of a figure in the campaign, and
docs not think that Henry George can de
liver the labor vote in New York to the
Democracy. When asked if he thought the
Republican party had good prospects for
success, he replied: "Yes, sir; when the
records of the campaign are written up
they will show the country that the Cleve
land episode in the Democratic ranks has
been wound up, and a Republican Presi
dent put into the White House."
Speaking to a reporter last evening, Hon.
John C. New, of Indianapolis, said: "Indi
ana is persistently and pugnaciously for
Harrison. We intend to vote for him first,
last and all the time. We have no second
choice, neither have we anv other candi
date; and not only will we Lave the solid
support of Indiana from first to finish, but
we expect to get enough votes for him from
other States to nominate him."
"Cannot Gresham get any votes from his
native State?'
"Not one. Indiana is for Harrison first,
last and all the lime, and supposing such a
thing as his losing it, the vote would not go
to Gresham."
"To whom, then?"
"To no one; we have no second choice."
Chairman Jones Denies the Story.
Chicago, June 14. At a later hour,
Chairman Jones, when asked regarding the
correctness of a Pittsburg dispatch stating
that he had in bis possession a third letter
from James G. Blaine positively declining
the nomination, said: "It is absolutely
false end manufactured out of whole cloth.
I have bad no communication with Mr.
Blaine, nor have recei ed any letter from
him since that dated at Florence. Since
then I know of no letter that was sent
here by him regarding the nomination, ex
cept that I may have heard or read about
such a thing. I can't sec wbatobiect there
can be in publishing such stuff. Mr. Blaine
is not a candidate and his name will not
be brought before the Republican
convention as such. Mr. Blaine is a sin
cere man and a patriot. He is honest and
meant all he said m his letter. He is
anxious that the Republican party should
win He is not double-dealing. It is not
in him to say one thing and do another.
There is not the first scintilla of truth in
the dispatch, not even the color of truth.
Had I such a letter I would admit the fuct
Mr. L'laine has no one that he asks the
convention to favor. He feels that his
friends,have sulhricnt force of character to
vote for the bestinterests of the Republican
party and the country."

poison from birth, and so much so that all the
doctors of my town said I would be crippled

my lessons, and eleven bottles ot your Balm
cured me sound and well. Ton can use my
