Representa tives ot the rival cities which seek the honor of entertaining the next Repub lican national convention began ac tive work yesterday. About 20 tnem bars of the Hamilton club, of Chicago, reachexl here late In the afternoon and establlnhed headquarters In a hand some suite of rooms at the Shoreham hotel. The party Is In charge of Sam uel Ii. Raymond and is made up of prominent citizens of Chicago. LaBt night a meeting was held and the sen ators and a largo number of Republi can representative) from Illinois at tended and promised their cordial sup port In endeavoring to obtain tho con vention for Chicago. Sub-committeos were appointed to canvass the na tional committee and keep up the fight to the end. The Phtladelphlans who are already here express themselves as delighted with the result of their three days' canvass In Washington, and Bay they believe Philadelphia will be selected. They say the one serious obstacle they have met is the charge that Pennsyl vania Is In favor of a resolution basing the representation In the national con vention on the Republican votes cast, which, If adopted, would cut down the, southern representation. The south ern delegates, they say, have an idea that Pennsylvania Is for tne proposed change, and they started out last even ing to counteract this Impression. Contrary to expectation the delega tion of tho New Yorkers who are ex ported did not put In an appearance, but Is expected In force today, when tho representatives from St. Louis are also expected. It is said that tho southern national committeemen are determined to make a fight against Mr. Payne's plan for a reapportionment of delegates In the convention based on the Republican votes cast. The statement Is made that they propose to act as a unit and cast their votes on the subject of the selection of place of meeting In such a way as will win for them the most sup port In their fight against reapportion ment.
