Maine Democrats Select W. L. Putnam as Their Stand ard Bearer. Gorman Will Retire From the Democratic Executive Committee. Srocinl to the Globe. Washington, May 22.— Guenther, of Wisconsin, the great oratorical leader of the German-Americans for the Republi can party, states to-day that he cannot support and will uncompromisingly op pose Gresham, because of his former Know Nothing affiliations and[his unpar donable allusions to the "lizy, lop cared, dirty Dutch," in a speech deliv ered prior to 1860. He claims to have a copy of the New Albany, Ind., Ledger containing the offensive speech and cer tified to by eighteen reputable citizens. This attitude of Guenther is regarded as a dangerous, if not fatal, thrust at the Gresham boom. The Chicago Tribune will deny that Gresham ever made the speech. or was a Know Nothing.and will continue advocating the Gresham boom Which Medill started. MAINE DEMOCRATS. Putnam for Governor — The Ad ministration* Indorsed. Augusta, Me., May 23.— Demo cratic state convention met at 11:15 and was called to order by S. S. Brown, of the state committee. Hon. A. A. Pow ers was chosen chairman and made a brief address. The committee on creden tials reported 1,007 delegates present. Members of the state committee, vice presidents and members of the com mittee on resolutions wore then an nounced. The following delegates at large to the St. Louis convention were then elected: Payson Tucker, Arthur Sewall, E. C. Allen and James Tobin. The platform was then re ported and adopted. It declares that unnecessary taxation is unjust extor tion; that the surplus is a menace to business interests and economical gov ernment, and the tariff is so arranged as to foster wealthy monopolies at the expense of the people. It approves "the efforts of the Democrats . in con gress to pass a bill, which, in the lan guage of President Cleveland, will re lieve the people from unnecessary taxa tion having a due regard to the' inter est of capital invested and workmen employed in American industries," and says: '"We do not advocate free trade, but favor and desire the revision of the present unjust and burdensome tariff laws." The course of the presi dent and Secretary Bayard in connection with the fisheries treaty is approved, especially the president's conduct in re fusing to yield to the demands of selfish monopolies which claimed the use of the federal power to secure facilities. FOR SHIPPING ALIENS in foreign ports to man our fishing fleet in competition with our citizens. The administration of President Cleveland is heartily indorsed. The majority re ported a clause demanding the repeal of the state prohibitory law in the in terests of good society and temperance. The minority reported, recommending j that no resolution on the prohibitory j law be adopted, or, if any, one which they presented, scathingly denouncing the Republican party for hypocrisy, duplicity and insincerity in * secretly combining with violations of the law. which they pretended to support, to se cure for such violators immunity from prosecution and declaring that such practices corrupt public morals, engen der disrespect for law, and encourage dishonesty, bribery and perjury, while the party engaging in them is "worthy the contempt and condemnation of all good citizens. After an hour's debate, this minority resolution was adopted. A resolution was also adopted declaring the laboring men of Maine deserve care ful legislation to protect them from mo nopolies and trusts, and pledging them hearty support. Hon. W. L. Putnam, of Portland, was named as a candidate for governor, and he was nominated by acclamation, and addressed the conven tion. Col. Clark S. Edwards and Charles McCarthy were chosen electors at large. Adjourned. GORMAN WILL RETIRE, But Predicts the Election of Cleveland With Ease. New York, May 22.— smooth visaged statesman of Maryland, Senator Arthur P. Gorman, is given credit in his party for a gread deal of far-reach ing sagacity and wisdom. This has partly come about from his reticence and partly because he was the manager, as chairman of the Democratic execu tive committee, of .the successful cam paign of 1884. So much difference do a few votes make that if GOO residents of New York had transferred their ballots to Blame, Senator Gorman would be ex ecrated as a numbskull in politics. He is, however, a shrewd manipulator, a keen judge of men and a thorough bourbon Democrat. 1 had a talk with him to-day in which he said he "would not go back on the national committee. "In ISS4," lie remarked, "there were no Democrats holding federal office from whom the committee would receive con tributions. There was then no impro priety in my position. But there was so much question whether senators, mem bers of congress and federal appointees were not liable to prosecution under the civil service act, if they were members of committees receiving money from federal officeholders, that the Repub lican national convention passed a res olution that no such officials should be appointed members of the national com mit tee. We have now to face the same difficulty. While 1 see no impropriety in holding a position on the committee and receiving voluntary subscriptions, I SHALL RETIRE, so that there may be no question raised." Senator Gorman chatted freely about New York and national Demo cratic politics. Said he: "The united condition of the Democracy iv New York seems to"give the Republicans the Idea that there is trouble underneath. They say that the Democracy always does best when it quarrels most fiercely internally, and the observation is true enough, but 1 apprehend there will be quarreling enough on local matters among the Democratic leaders to make up tor any lack of it on larger matters, and that the results will be eminently satisfactory to us. In our party there is really but one presidential candidate. 1 lure is no opposition to him, and his re-election may be safely predicted. Mr. Cleveland will be elected easily— I say easily advisedly. He has made an issue on the reduction of taxation without disturbance of the labor or in dustries of the country." On such issue no man has ever been defeated. I recognize Mr. Blame as the strongest Republican candidate, and believe he will be renominated, but he cannot de feat Mr. Cleveland. There will, of course, be a fight. The Republican party is an enormous, great organiza tion, full of vigor and vitality, and will not give up without a struggle, but it cannot win this time." SETTING UP THE PINS. Unusual Activity at Republican Headquarters at Augusta. Me. Augusta, Me., May 22.— There is no longer any doubt among the people of Maine that every effort will be made at the .Chicago convention to nominate James G. Blame. Those who have watched the faithful lieutenants of the Maine statesman who live here see the same detailed campaign arrangements in progress and the same preparations maturing that have twice betore pre dicted a Blame canvass. It is here that the headquarters of Mr. Blame have always been, and the first signs of activity in anticipation of political struggles have made their appearance in Augusta. As the date of the Chicago convention draws near, the whole scheme for the nomination of Mr. Blame has been unfolded to the faithful few whose future prospects depend upon the success of their leader. Mr. Blame's name will not be formally presented to the convention. The first three or four ballots * .WILT. BE COMPLIMENTARY to "favorite-sons." When this respect has been paid to a half dozen prominent candidates, Mr. Blame will be nomi nated by acclamation. This is the plan that has been determined upon, and it will be carried out. A correspondent visited the Republican headquarters over the postoffiee to-day and plainly saw the unmistakable signs of unusual activity. Joe Mauley is the chairman of the Republican state committee, a position he has filled for many years. This astute political manager, together with a few trusted lieutenants, has Mr. Blaines's interests in his hands in his absence. The Republican state head quarters are elaborately equipped with all the machinery of modern political warfare. Manley has his private apart ments, and there is a large reception room for the rank and file of the party. On all hands are likenessessof Mr. Blame of all sizes— paintings, crayons, heliotypes and steel engravings. Heaped up in corners are thousands upon thousands of POLITICAL TRACTS and documents. All of the Maine states man's speeches and other campaign literature are stored up in wholesale quantities. Manley has a stenographer, a typewriter, a telegraph operator and several extra wires ready for important occasions, and various clerks at work revising endless lists of names with cor rected addresses. In a large safe are three or four dozen pigeon-holes stuffed full of letters, telegrams and valuable documents. In the same safe are many closely-written books containing data, memoranda and campaign accounts of former years. This systematic collec tion of decuments is all indexed in the head of Joe Manley, who knows the political status of every man in Maine, and knows where to look for the record of votes for years back of every consid erable town and city in the United States. Manley sits at a big desk sur rounded by assistants and at the direc tion of Mr. Blame sets in motion the vast machinery of the party. CUT AX I) DRIED. Everything Ready for the Conven tion at Harrisburg. HAiiniSßuitG,Pa., May 22.— The Dem ocratic state convention will meet here to-morrow. Congressman Scott appears to have a decided majority with him and the friends of President Cleveland will have no difficulty in directing the pro ceedings of the body and in naming all of the delegates at large. The only op position to the programme as arranged by Mr. Scott and his friends to-day comes from the friends of ex-Congress men Speer, of Huntingdon county, who, with the followers of Mr. Randall have been making an effort to break the slate and defeat ex-Congressman Charles E. Boyle, of Fayette, but this move ment has proved a failure and the four delegates at large will be Congressman Scott, of Erie; Hon. Lewis C. Cassldy, of Philadelphia; Con gressman Mutchler, and Mr. Boyle. Ex-chairman of the state committee, William H. Hensel, of Lancaster, will be the temporary chairman, and ex- Senator William A. Wallace, the per manent chairman. So sure are the friends of the administration of being able to control the convention that they have prepared a platform in full, which it is expected will be adopted without any difficulty. It indorses the president and the Mills tariff bill, and is other wise just what Congressman Scott and his friends desire. No attention is being paid to the judicial nomination, and it will go ban-hazard to any one of a half dozen candidates. PALMER FOR LEADER. Illinois Democrats Will Nominate a Ticket To-Day. Srmxr.FiKi.D, 111., May 25.— Democratic state convention opens to morrow and a majority of the delegates, together with nearly 1,000 adherents of the party that are not accredited to the gathering, are on the grounds. Indi cations to-night point strongly to the selection of ex-Gov. Palmer as v the gu bernatorial standard bearer. Ex-Land Commissioner Sparks has failed to gather the strength expected and his henchmen are almost willing to confess to-night that it is losing cast. Assist ant Postmaster Gen. Stevenson could have the nomination if he desired it. There are doubts as to the sincerity of his recent declination, and reports are current that a delegate will to-morrow inform the convention that he is willing to become the standard bearer, pro vided a nomination comes by acclama tion. The Colored Brethren. Raleigh, N. C, May 22.— The Re publican congressional convention of the Fourth district met here to-day and elected John H. Williamson (colored), and C. L. Harris delegates to the Chi cago convention. Both expressed them selves in favor of Blame. The conven tion adjourned without indorsing a nominee for congress. It is understood that John Nichols, the present con uressman, will receive the support of the Republicans. The Republican con vention for the Fifth congressional dis trict to-day renominated J. M. Brower, the present member, and chose T. F. Strayhorn elector. Cleveland and the Mills Bill. Fort Worth, Tex., May 22.— The platform adopted by the Democrats in dorses President Cleveland, favors the Mills tariff bill, indorses the Democratic platform of 1884, asks for the removal of commercial restrictions between Mexico and the United States, and comes out squarely against any further agitation of the prohibition question in Texas. Adjourned until to-morrow. t;?v- OPPOSED_BY_WILSON. The Minnesota Congressman Deems the Contract Labor Bill Injudicial, And an Open Question if It Was Not Unconstitu tional, Also. No Prospect of an Early Vote on the Mills Tariff Bill. No Open Sessions on the Fish eries Bill— General News. Special to the Globe. Washington, May While Mr. O'Neill's labor bill was under discus sion Congressman Wilson obtained the floor and said that he opposed it because he deemed it injudicial, even if it were constitutional, to keep the criminals in idleness in our prisons and compel hon est, industrious people to pay taxes to support them in idleness, and, as for our youths sent to reformatories, it would be most unwise to support them there, thus making criminals of them. One great object in sending them to the reformatory is to give them a trade at which in after life they may be able to earn an honest livelihood and become good citizens, and if they learn trades in these reformatories, they must earn something, for all labor is valuable. "If this bill is right," continued Mr. Wilson, "then either nothing must be manufactured by these roughs, or else the products of their labor must be de stroyed, for, if it is wrong to sell it in another state, it is wrong to sell it in the state where pro duced." But outside the question of policy, he argued, that the law is un constitutional. If congress has power to enact this law and to forbid interstate transportation of property it may also forbid such transportation of any other property. It was suggested by Raynor, of Maryland, that this could be dis tinguished from other propeity as dis eased property, but Wilson replied: "There is nothing in that. This prop erty is legally produced.'? It was also stated that the interstate transportation of such property might be forbidden because it was produced by those who are not citizens. Mr. Wilson answered : "This means that the sale or transporta tion of wheat or other products of our states produced by those who are not yet citizens of the United States might be forbidden." To these views he said he could not assent, and as he had sworn to support the constitution of the United States he must keep faith with himself and vote against the bill. Judge Wilson's remarks were received with applause, and his ready legal and constitutional ability to an swer inquiries elicited much favorable comment. Congressman Mac Donald in dorses Judge Wilson's speech in oppo sition to the convict labor bill, saying: "It is an absurdity easily explained to our people. Under that bill, if it be comes a law, every man owning one of Sabin's reapers would be liable to arrest and imprisonment if he crossed the line in Dakota to do a day's work over there. The same rule applies all over the coun try. The bill is unconstitutional and therefore unwise, andean never become a law." THE MILLS BILL. No Prospect of an Immediate Vote. Washington, May 22.— Mr. Mills stated this afternoon that he had been informed officially that his proposition to have an immediate vote on the tariff would be rejected by the Republicans. Mr. Mills further said that as soon as some pressing legislation was passed by the house the tariff bill would be taken up anew under the five-minute rule and passed to a final vote. Conferences are being held nightly at the homes of the Republican members for the pur pose of discussing amendments to the measure. The Star this after noon says: "Although no posi tive action has yet been taken by the majority of the ways aud means committee upon the amendments offered by the Democratic members to the tar iff bill, it is reported by some of the representatives especially interested in the woolen schedules that they have been assured that by way of compro mise the committee will accept an amendment reducing the duty on woolen manufactures from 40 per cent to 35 per cent. Members of the committee de clined to indicate how they will act upon the amendment which was orig inally offered by Mr. drain, of Texas, and proposed to admit woolen ma chinery duty free and reduce the tariff on woolen manufactures to 25 per cent." THE MILLS BILL. An Estimate Made of the Vote For and Against It. Washington, May 22.— Gen. John B. Clark, chief clerk of the "house, has fin ished his canvass of the house on the Mills bill, He makes the following estimate: For the bill io"4 Against the bill 101 Majority 3 lii this count Clerk Clark gives the bill the support of three Independents and one Republican, Mr. Fitch, of New York. He counts against the bill the following Democrats: Randall and Sowden, of Philadelphia; Merriman and Stahlnecker, of New York; McAdoo and Pidcock, of New Jersey, Vance, of Connecticut, and Foran, of Ohio. Mr. Scott, of Pennsylvania, has also made a canvass of the house, which he will not give to the public. His esti mated majority for the bill is six. Mr. Randall claims that there are twelve if not thirteen Democrats who will vote with him against the bill. This would defeat it, even with the votes of Nelson and Lind, of Minnesota, who are num bered among the doubtful. It is thought that Mr. Randall is counting ou Thomp son and Briggs, of California, and Wil kins, of Ohio. Intimate friends of these gentlemen assert that they will vote for the bill. Some of the Demo cratic members, who, while they will vote for the bill, are exceedingly anx ious that it shall be amended in some of its minor schedules, which will but slightly affect the measure. The indi cations are now that a vote will be reached on the bill about the middle of June. Approved by the President.

CONVICT LABOR. The Bill Discussed in the House Yesterday. Washington, May 22.— 1n the house to-day the floor was accoided to the com mittee of labor and Mr. O'Neill, of Mis souri, called up the bill to confine the sale of the products of convict labor to the state in which they are produced. Mr. O'Neill endeavored to have an ar rangement effected whereby debate on the bill should be confined to two hours, but opposition was made on the ground that the principle involvee in the bill was too important to be established without full discussion and considera tion. The majority and minority re ports were read at length and an hour was thus consumed. Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, offered an amendment prohibit ing the importation for commercial purposes of all goods, wares or merchan dise from any foreign country to the United States, which, in whole or part, were manufactured or produced by con vict labor, and prescribing penalties for the violation of this prohibition. Adopted. The previous question was then ordered yeas, 185; nays, 44 0n the engrossment and third reading of the bill, and then the house adjourned. THE BAPTISTS. Hon. G. A.

WON BY THEEMPEROR He Effectively Takes the Con ceit Out of Sir Dixon and Raceland By Winning- the Brooklyn Derby by a Good Two Lengths. Leaders of Society Take in the Steeplechase at Cedarhurst. Some Great Racing- Done at Louisville— To-Day's Tips. Special to the Globe. New York, May 22.— Whatever pre tensions to greatness as three-year-olds Sir Dixon and Kaceland may lay claim to, the Emperor of Norfolk to-day effectively disposed of them in the race for the Brooklyn Derby. In addition to these three Pi i nee Royal was' started, with Hayward up, to assist his stable companion, Raceland, and Mr. Haggins also started Tennyson, who has just come on from the West. Emperor of Norfolk was a good favorite at Gto 5, but the Dwyer money kept Sir Dixon a good second choice at Bto 5. Raceland was supported by his own people, but not by the public or talent to any ex tent, and the others were friendless. Prince Royal made the running two lengths in front of Raceland and Em peror of Norfolk, who were lapped, a length before Sir Dixon till a half mile from home, when Sir Dixon begun to move up and Emperor of Norfolk at the same time begun to close on the leader. Raceland was beaten at the head of the stretch, and when well straightened out Emperor of Norfolk came away fol lowed by Sir Dixon. McLaughlin made desperate efforts to close on the Califor nian Emperor, but the latter without even being shaken up easily retained THE lead and won by two lengths; Sir Dixon sec ond, three lengths before Prince Royal, who beat his stable companion, Race land, a head. Tennyson was a poor fourth. The race was a fast one, the lirst quarter being run in 20 seconds.the half in 51%, the three-quarters in 1:16%, the mile in 1;42)£ and the mile and a i quarter in 2:08%. The Emperor pulled up as fresh as if he had just come out of the stable. The Lawnview handicap was a great betting event, turned out a grand race and resulted in the victory of an outsider, who started at 50 to 1, and on whom even his own stable did not have a penny. Favor was slightly the favorite, but Richmond. Volante and Banbury were each so well backed that they sold practically on even terms. Belvidere also came in for a deal of sup port.' Ordway. leaped to the head by The Bourbon, made the running until a half mile from home, when The Bourbon dropped back and Volante shot up like a hash, followed by Favor, Banburgand Eurus, and Richmond and Belvidere, who had been trailing, also moved up. This lot, together with Ordway, who re tained his lead, ■ WERE HEAD AND HEAD •as they turned into the stretch. When well straightened out Ordway drew away, but Favor closed on him, as did also Richmond, who attempted to get through between them, but McLaughlin pulled Favor in so that he could not come through. A desperate finish en sued, but Ordway managed to last long enough to win by a short head; Favor second a scant length before Richmond. Belvidere was a good fourth. Had Richmond been able to come through he would have won cleverly. The race was a good one, as the fractions show. The quarter was run in 20 seconds, the half in 51%, the three-quarters in 1:10%, the mile in I:42>£, and the mile and one furlong in 1:56. For the opening dash of six furlongs Fitzroy was a good fa vorite at 2to 1, but though he made the running throughout, at the end he had to succumb to the Californian, Laredo, and Mr. Belmont's filly, Lady Primrose. The former won cleverly by a head, Lady Primrose second, half a length before Fitzroy. For the mile and one sixteenth, the California mare, Mollie McCarthy's Last, was favorite, but the reinstated half-mile track mare BOBDELAIIIK WON CLEVERLY by a neck from the Cyclone colt, who beat Lottery a length. Mollie Mc- Carthy's Last was never prominent, and finished fourth. Young Mr. Lorillard's Blazon won the two-year-old race clev erly through a grand piece of riding on Hay ward's part. Harrisbiirg seemed to have the race safe, but in the last hundred yards Blazon came with a rush and won cleverly by a length. The last race was also won cleverly by Hay ward on Banner Bearer, the outsider, Lackawanna, getting the place. Alto gether it was a capital day's racing that was furnished at the Brooklyn course. The weather was fine, though cool, the track fast and the attendance excellent.
