Some Would-Bo Candidates That
Will Probably Sink out of
Slght In the Convention.
Special Correspondence of the Tribune.
SEATTLE, Oct. 25.—The Press—Times of
last night contains a screed which is signed
“Rounder” which is much the same song,
warbled by the Olympia correspondent of
the P.-’E. before the Piper boys took hold
of the paper. It is Laughton, Deuton, et
9.1, over again and it looks as if the writer’s
ideas were pretty well stereotyped in his
utterances. Among other things he says
Sheriff Price of Pierce county wants to be
secretary of state and will make a strong
pull for that ofl‘ice. If “Rounder” knew
the inside workings of politics he, would be
acquainted with the probability that Pierce
county Will get just one office on the gen
eral state ticket and that will be either the
governor or attorney general. Col. Nicho
las H. Owings is going to be acandidate,
for secretary of state, it is said, if he can i
secure the delegation from Thurston
county. If anybody could make the office
pay, it is "Nick," but as the convention is
to be held here the ex-territorial secretary
will meet with a cold reception. His
name will probably not be mentioned
—nor will that of Price. The lat
ter. by the way, has informed his friends
that he will not be a candidate for any po
lltical office and is going into business. It
is now said that Auditor Reed will get the
support of the King county delegation for
governor, and that Fred Grant Will be their
candidate for lieutenant governor, while
the young Napoleon of Tacoma, Capt. \V.
H. Fife, will e urged by his friend, Col.
J. C. Haines. as a candidate for state treas
urer. The state auditor, it is not believed,
would accept any Office as it is well known
he is tired and sick of the responsibilities
of the office he now holds, which is the
hardest one in the state to fill and pays
less. Another candidate for lieutenant
governor looming up here is Major Rine
hart, ex-state senator and president of the
Board of public works. He isa strong man
and would fill the oliice of governor credit—
ably in case of the absence of that oflicial.

Coin Was Swallowed by a Child and
Logded Above the Lungs.
WILLIAMSI’OR‘I‘, Pa., Oct. 26. With a
five-cent nickle away down in her chest,
causing a dreadtul cough, Baby Burns, a
ZO-nlonths-old daughter of A. J. Burns,
of Ross street, has been suflering since
Tuesday evening. ‘
On Thursday Dr. Nutt was called, and he
thrust instruments down the child’s throat.
This only made her cough worse. Finally
the symptoms grew so serious that the doc
tor used his deepest “fishing?Y instrument
for that class of surgery. A ter thrusting
it three times through the little throat he
drew out of the avenue to the lungs the

Reciprocity I deas.
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 26.~The correspond
ent of the Recurd write: from the. city of
Washington as follows:
Long before he came to Washington to
be inaugurated Harrison had shown as
plainly as he could’that he, too, had a pro
gramme which diflered radically from
Elaine’s. He proposed to be president, he
proposed to succeed himself. Helms stuck
to his programme. He has certainly been
president. 4
Blaine found it necessary to break forth
in his reciprocity movement in order to
remind the country that he fias in the ad
ministration. This unexpected move dis
concerted Harrison for a time. He “got
rattled,” as the saymg goes. and made the
mistake of trying'to bottle up both Blaine
and reciprocity. But Blaine, with charac
teristic and successful audacity, broke the
bottle by appealing directly to the republi
can party outside of Washington, availing
himself with customary cleverness of the
discontent with high Protection and the
desire for foreign mar mm, which Cleve
land’s campaign of education had pro:
duced within this very citidal of republi
However, this coup d’etat cost Blaine
his health, and now that Harrison has
adopted Bluine’s idea as though it were his
own, and indeed has convinced the re
publican organs and orators that he is the
“original Jacobs” of reciprocity, he is
lealiy no worse 011‘ than it it had never
happened. All the Harrisonians are
claiming for Harrison all the credit for
everything good that the administration
has done, and they are graduallv produc
ing the impression on the puoiic mind
which they desire—just as any impression
can be imprinted by incessant iteration.
Even the good things which he opposed
are now credited to him. Blaine is no
more to be considered than Noble or Miller.
It is all Harrison. This may not. be very
agreeable to Blaine, but that doesn’t inat
tm‘. Probably the whole process of self-as
sertion by which Harrison has established
his claim to he the administration has not
been agreeable to Blaine, but does not
trouble Harrison.
When you sum to think there is some
thing almost splendid in the cool, calm,
confident way in which Harrison has
shoved aside the great leader of the refiub
lican partyand quietly gotten in front ini
soll‘. And now the light of prescient hope
shines in his blue eyes. He sees it written
in the book of fate that he is to be renom
inated at last, and probably re-elected.
This sure feeling is of recent date. It is
due to Blaine’s absence and silence, and
the prospect that he is likely to be absent
and silent for some time to come, if not
altogether. For “B. H.,” as the Blaine’s
are said to call him, is neither absent nor
silent. He is right here. working seven
davs iii the week, and talkin§ personally
or by proxy with all the men 1e needs.
Blaine, posing as the sage of his party,
who will accept but cannot solicit a nomi
nation, is at a disadvantage with the
hustling Harrison, who will not only ac
cept but solicit. Blaine’s friends, meeting
with no response from Blaine, are very evi
dently getting weary of shouting for him
and are getting more and more Willing to
listen to Harrison. The latter does not
scruple to begiiile them. He has directly
or through his shrewd and active lieuten
ants—such men as Foster and Proctor and
Wanamaker—approaclied many of Blaine’s
most prominent iriends. and more than
one has been brought to believe atloast
this much, that if Blaine is not to be nom
inated, Harrison ought to be. '
This is enough for Harrison. This is all
he asks of Olarkson, or even of Quay.
(llarkson was not asked for extravagant
promises of support when he was smoking
a presidential cigar after dinner at the
White House Tuesday night. It was
enough that he was there, and willing to
consider practical posibilities. Second
choices are just as good as first choices
sometimes, and this is one of the times.
Harrison had his feelers out in all direc
tions for second choices—when he cannot
get first choices. All the power, all the
patronage of his great plans being used to
get second choices—when he cannot get
first choices. The president is a politician,
we have found out long since, and a very
good one, too. He knows all about “lay
ing pipe” and “pulling wire.” And he is
carrying on right now the neatest, most
quiet and most adroit political work of re
cent years. He is getting information
about men and how to get at them. Then
he is getting at them—now with an ar u
inent. now with an office. Think of fiis
keeping Blaine’s bosom friend. Stephen

The Reason Why English and
Eastern Capitalists Want. to
Invest Along the .
ST. PAUL, Oct. 20.—George M. Sims,
managing director of the Lombard Trust
00., limited, of London and New York,
was in the city yesterday for a short time. ,
“I have been made representative of $5),- 1
000,000 of English capttal and am directed
to place it where the greatest benefit will
be derived,” said Sims. “I am not to use
it for speculation, but to invest it in safe‘
real estaie, factories and industries. It is
my intention to go to Tacoma, Seattle,‘
Portland, Everett and other cities alongi
Puget Sound. I shall probably put a great
deal of money in Everett and seaport
towns, as we believe the Panama canalwill
be in operation in five years perhaps less;
then there are two great enterprises under
consideration that will aii‘ect the north
western interests greatly; one is the estab
lishment of a line of steamers between
Puget Sou nd, China and Japan, the other
is layinga submarine cable between the
same places. These enterprises are not
fully matured, but I can assure you they
are almost certainties. I am not inter
ested in either, but should like to be as
they willbe very profitable.” Sims was
urged to tell who were the men back of the
two great enterprsses but he refused, ex
cept in so tar as saying that part wete En
glishmen and the other were eastern cap
italists. __

'Anlnteresung' Case In the Supreme
Court of the United
WASHINGTON, Oct. 26.—A. H. Garland,
err-attorney general of the United States
in the Supreme court today moved an ad
vancement of an important and interest
ing case of the Roman Catholic Bishop of
Nesqually, against John Gibbs, T. M. An.
derson, R. T. Yeatnlan_ and the United
States. By this suit the bishop seeks
to secure title to some 430 acres of land,
comprising the United States military res
ervation at Vancouver, Washington. The
land is worth now over half a. million
dollars. At the time Oreglon territory
was organized the Catholic c urch had a
missonary at this place by permission of
the Hudson Bay company which had its
principal trading station at Vancouver.
The Oregon act of Oregon confirmed the
title to not exceeding 640 acres to religious
societies occupying land as missionaries.
Under this act the bishop claims this sec
tion, while the United States contends the
Catholic church merely had permission
from the Hudson Bay company to occupy
a small tract for religious purposes and
had no title to the land except a half acre
which had been allowed It.

Palouse Gazette: “The democratic party
is the party of the common people,” is an
extract from a speech by Grover Cleveland
in New York a few days ago, and on the
stage by his side were Millionaire Brice,
the chairman of the national democratic
committee and the man who rurchased a
senatorsliip from the Ohio legis cture; Mil
lionaire William 0. Whitney, the Standard
Oil magnate; Millionaire Grant, the Tani
niany boss; Millionaire Fairchihl, a Wall
street banker; Millionaire Grace, a railroad
king, and fifteen or twenty others. And
while those words were falling from the
lips of the pussy gentleman, our Own Pa
louse home was listening to a similar
herangue from a West Virginia senator,
delivered in the same court house where
the party of the “common people" is bleed
ing the treasury by employing a horde of
deputies at exoritant salaries. The only
wonder is that anybody could be duped by
such denxagogism, esrecially when it is
known that the whole iistory of the demo
cretic party is a continual series of boodle,
blunder and bourbonism.

plan of “The Private Secreter , All the
Comforts of Home, Mr. \Jilkinson's
Widows,” and the other great comedy suc—
cesses of the day, and this is the style of
[)ler that creates fun without horse-play
an is likely to become quite popular.
Managers have been quick to recognize the
desire for the comical rather than the ser
ious, and legitimate farces like “Ineog”
which present fun with reason and without
vulgarity are now the reigning attractions.
It is a. splendid farce and very laughable.
