Everybody is talking about the large number of "Want" Ads con tained in the GLOBE every day. That is why everybody looks in THE GLOBE For What They Want. VOL.X BLAINE'S SPOOK. It Continues to Haunt Repub lican Aspirants for the Nomination. Chairman Jones Says the Plumed Knight Cuts No Figure. Delegates, However, Look Upon Blain as the Key to a Deadlock Black Jack's Widow Comes Out Boldly and Strongly For Alger. Supporters of Gresham and Harrison Hit the Pipe of Peace. From Louisiana Comes Com mendation for the Veno mous Ingalls. fpecial to the Globe. Chicago, June 14.— "I say emphatic ally that no third letter from Mr. Blaine is in existence and that no communica tion from him will be presented to the convention next week." This is what Chairman B. F. Jones, of the Republi can national committee, said to a repre sentative of the Globe this evening. He had just finished reading a dispatch quoting an afternoon paper of Pitts burg as reiterating the declaration that, in spite of Mr. Jones' denials, such a letter was in existence; that the infor mation came from a trustworthy source; that the letter would be read in the convention, and that Blaine's l fiends, who were still working for Lis nomination were using every effort to accomplish its suppression. Mr. Jones read the dispatch carefully a second time and then resumed: "I received the first letter from Mr. Blaine and Whitelaw Reid the second. No further communications have come to either of us, and if Mr. Blaine had ad dressed himself to still a third party, I think that I would he likely to have heard of it by this time. I thought that my denial of yesterday would have set tled the matter. As it seems not to have done so, however, 1 would thank the Globe to say for me, absolutely and unqualifiedly, that 1 know nothing of any such letter. ' "And as to Blaine's friends still working for his nomination?" was asked. ' "That," replied Mr. Jones," goes into the same category. None of his friends, so far as I know, are doing anything of the kind. They recognize the fact that his withdrawal is absolute and unequiv ocal; that he is out of the field in every sense. His name cannot be considered in event of the most remote contingency. That is his position, and that is the po sition of his friends. What would it avail for them to work for a nomination which even if successful would be im mediately followed by a declination. Mr. Blaine's friends do not want to put either him or the Republican party in any such a position." "Then the individuals who are still booming him are—" Mr. Jones inter rupted the querry with a suggestive shrug of the shoulders and wave of- the hand, lie could not have any more plainly answered "fool friends" even if he had spoken the words. No matter, however, how one of the most intimate friends of the man from Maine may re gard those who refuse to abandon his flag, it is nevertheless certain that the latter are just as earnest and enthusi astic as the henchmen of some of the other candidates. Witness, for instance, the contretemps that CREATED SO MUCH COMMOTION in the rotunda of the Grand Pacific to day. Col. A. C. Babcock, the well known politician, appeared at the desk with an armful of Blaine lithographs. He wanted one placed alongside the pictures of Sherman, Allison, Alger and Gresham. But mine host Drake wouldn't have it so. "Blaine isn't a candidate," he said, "and his picture can't be set up here. I'm not going to encourage any Blaine furor." Both of the white-headed men were angry, and a personal col lision seemed imminent. The crowd that had gathered cheeied Babcock it cheered again when he placed the picture in the window of one of the stores in the hotel rotunda, and it went into paroxysms of enthusiasm when, after nailing a Blaine lithograph on one of the pillars, he engaged two colored stalwarts to guard it, with the threat, "I've put that picture there and I'd like to see the man that will take it down. I can lick Drake or any one else." The irate colonel concluded with the declaration that he would cover the hotel and the town with Blaine pictures between now and the convention, and lie will keep his word. Still another straw indicative of the latest Blaine, feeling is found in the ac tion of the Young Men's Blaine club of this city. This organization, which numbers some 1,200 members, will turn out in force on Saturday with banners and badges to meet the Californians. The Irish-American club will unite with them, and between the two they pro pose to MAKE A BLAISE DEMONSTRATION that will be at once imposing and signifi cant. A thousand cream-colored hats, each of which will be ornamented with a picture of the Plumed Knight, are en route from Philadelphia, and will be worn in the parade. Around the hotels there was a good deal of talk amonir the politicians anent the apparent Blaine undercurrent, al though none of them would admit that it meant anything more than a token of sympathy and regard. AMONG boomers. They All Say Their Respective Candidates Will Get There, Rut the Blaine Ghost Rattles Them. Special to the Globe. Chicago, June 14.— At the various headquarters not much was doing to day. There was a falling off in the at tendance at the Gresham rooms, and the feeling generally prevailed that his boom was losing force with each sue-, ceeding day. Alger's advance guard was active and enthusiastic, and talked with earnestness of the strength which their candidate would develop when the delegations and the numerous grand army contingents began to pour in. . There were not many signs of act tive vitality about the Sherman headquarters until to-night, when the Ohioans arrived in force on a special train and beiran to whoop up things in vigorous style. Nor did the Harrison detachment from Indiana make much of a stir, although they moved around, here, there and everywhere, and did a good deal of quiet talking in behalf of of their can didate. About a third of the delega tion is now here, and they will be re inforced by the remainder and 5,000 Indianians by Monday. The Sher manitc* are confident, and claim Indi ana, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and New Yoikon the second and third ha'lo's, together with he solid support of the South. The Rusk boom, which was in agurated at the recent Madison state convention, has, so far, FAILED TO MATERIALIZE. with the slightest degree, but both the Wisconsin governor and Gov. Oglesby, of Illinois, are spoken of as candidates for the second place on the ticket. Sen ator Allison's friends are laying low, and Mr. Clarkson, of Des Moines, with several of his colleagues from that state, who will give the senator at least a complimentary vote, are quoted as con fessing privately their belief that Blaine will be the nominee. A United States senator who stopped over at the Pacific to-day, and requested that his name should not be used, said, among other things, "I believe . that Blaine's name will come up about the tenth ballot. If it becomes apparent that there is a deadlock, and every con dition now indicates that there will be one, 1 took for the delegates to begin to vote for Blaine and he will probably be nominated." Another veteran poli tician who, while taking no part in the struggle in behalf of any of the candi dates, is a keen observer, says; "There is one of three combinations 'that will be successful. It will be Blaine and For aker, Alger and Morton, or Harrison and Phelps." Delegate at Large Patrick Egan, of Nebraska, came in to-day from Cleve land, where he lias been attending the meeting of the Irish National league committee. He said: "There is no particular candidate who can say with any show of fact that he is in the lead. Probably Mr. Sherman is stronger now than any other one man, but there is no current of feeling toward him that would indicate his nomination more cer tainly than that of any other candidate. Personally, I am for Alger. Of the Ne braska delegation who will arrive here Saturday seven of the ten are for Blaine, one for Sherman, one for Gresham, and one. myself, for Alger. Gresham's strength, 1 take it, is mainly in Illinois. I heard very little of his boom in Ohio and it is weak in the West. The Irish- American Republicans will vote for the nominee of the convention, but Blaine would undoubtedly get votes that no other candidate can draw. lie can get a very large Irish vote, but there will be no attempt to stampede the conven tion for him. Should the nomi nation come to him it must do so spontaneously." Of others talked to, W. P. Brown low, son of the illustrious "parson" said: Sherman was the most available man, and would win; Col. Fred Grant was non-committal; Col. Robert E. Frazer, of Detroit, who will put Alger in nomi nation, said that his delegation had no second choice, and that it was certain of victory, while Gov. Foster, of Ohio, said the same regarding Sherman. When told that an Ohio man had said that only one-half of the Ohio delegation could be relied upon for the senator, Gov. Foster paused a moment 'and then said, deliberately: "You can tell him I said he is a liar." MRS. IiOGAN'S CHOICE. The Widow of Rlack Jack Rooms Alger. Chicago, June 14.— Mrs. John A. Logan has entered, into the canvas for Gov. Alger with old time energy, spiced with a tinge of bitterness towards other candidates. This new element is likely to create a good deal of bitter ness, as it has already consternation in more than one delegation. Mrs. Logan on arriving at the Grand Pa cific was waited upon by the members of the Chicago Yeterans' union, and given one of the heartiest reception ever accorded to a woman in Chicago. For every old sol dier she had a warm handshake and a word to him personally. Her hair had grown perfectly white since her bereave ment, but her face was bright and she was animated as ever. After the reception in conversation with the newspaper men who crowded about, she paid a high tribute to Gen. Alger. Mrs. Logan said: "He has al ways been honorable in his every deal ing. People say that he is unknown. The reason for this is that he has not antagonized anybody. ' He has not abused other Republicans. This is more than can be said for some of the other candidates in the field." "What do you think of Blaine?" "1 am fair enough to believe that Mr. Blaine is honest. I think that he is out of the race." "What do you think of the chances of the party?" "Well you know I am only a woman and my opinion may not be worth much. But if Gen. Alger is nominated he will be elected. That 1 feel certain of. He is strong with the soldiers; a safe, care ful, honest man who is true to his friends. That is more than can be said of some others. A man who is true to his friends can be relied upon for his country." WHITE-WINGED PEACE Settles Down In the Midst of the Harrison and Greshani Fac tions. Chicago, June 14.— The very first combination between the friends of any two candidates, and therefore the first real politics of the Republican national convention, was brought to a culmina tion to-day. Its importance will not be lessened by the fact that the news of the move will come as a total surprise to the great mass of people who have been listening to the bewildering idle gabble that for nearly a week now lias been making the hotel corridors fairly re sound. The business, which likely enough may be the determining factor in the final result of the convention, was not transacted in the noisy bedlam that every hotel lobby has become. Away from the mob of loud-voiced, self-important corridor talkers and their gaping groups of listeners, off in a quiet room less than a dozen men, all personal friends, but happen ing to be also leading advocates of two of the most prominent candidates be fore the convention came together with the utmost informality. They had been— several of them patiently wait ing for some time for the opportunity. Cigars were lighted, there was a free interchange of opinion in a purely con versational way, and within fifteen minutes the thing had been done. The forces of Harrison and Gresham had been harmonized. It was AX INDIANA FAMILY GATHERING. Among the Harrison leaders present were Attorney General Mitchener, ex- Congressman Peelle and Secretary of State Griffin. Gresham's representa tives included C. W. Fairbanks, of In dianapolis, State - Senator Robert Graham and Col. Henry Drew. The ap parent strained relations between the followers of Harrison and Gresham were mentioned, and- both sides recognized the folly of the friends of two Indiana , men com ing to Chicago and fighting each other. The feeling of those in the conference was that the part of good sense lay in the direction of some sort of union, not in antagonism. The upshot was an un derstanding substantially that the friends of Harrison and Gresham should not attack or attempt to under mine each other, that both sides should do the best they could for their men, but all in the friendliest spirit, and that the Indiana delegates should vote solidly from start to finish. When the time came— a time expected by all Gresham men, but acknowledged as probable by Gen. Harrison's phalanx— the time when it should become evident in the convention that Harrison could not be the nominee, then Gresham should be accorded the SUPPORT OF ins native STATE. It was not stipulated that a meeting of the Indiana delegation should be held to determine whether the time had ar rived, it being the purpose to make the matter so fair that no question of the kind could arise. The moment when the delegates should in such a con tingency, if the contingency arose, be gin voting for Gresham was left to the honor of the delegates themselves. VENOM'S REWARD. Louisiana Statesmen "With the Republican Trademark Give In galls a Lift. Chicago, June 14.— The arrival to-day of ex-Senator William Pitt Kellogg and ex-Go v. Henry C. Warmoth, of Louisi anna, has given rise to some well founded rumors of accessions to the boom of the senior senator for Kansas, J. J. Ingalls. Investigations resulted in showing that the Kansan's boom would indeed receive considerable impetus from the Southern states, and that the whole matter is being operated upon a plan which has the closest secrecy as its basis. Mr. Kellogg was visited by a re porter, and he at once disavowed any intention of the South as a whole to pose* as a launcher of presidential booms. "But," continued he, "we have the best of feelings for Mr. Ingalls, and I can only say that from Louisiana he will receive at least three votes and possibly more. I'll admit that the South, more particularly my state, has the kindliest sentiments for Ingalls for his noble attack on the Democratic politi cal tactics as they are carried out in our section. Gov. Warmoth, in particular, feels grateful to him, and, withal, Mr. Ingalls has our moral support. If fihe does not get all our votes it will be be cause the South wishes to defer to those states which will have to furnish the electoral votes." LIVELY AND HAPPY. The Gresham Gang Fear Nothing, They Say, Not Even Blaine. Chicago, June 14.— A livelier scene than that presented in the Gresham headquarters this afternoon and even ing could scarcely be imagined. The rooms were crowded constantly. The tall, wiry figure of C. W. Fairbanks seemed everywhere, now pleasantly greeting some old Indianian, or cor dially grasping the hand of the distin guished Chicagoans and others no less distinguished from outside states who came in to cheer on the Gresham boom. Mr. Fairbanks took pains to correct the reports circulated, as he said, by the cohorts of other candidates for their own profit, that there were other than the friendliest feelings between the old friends of Blaine and the supporters of Gresham. "Why," said Mr. Fairbanks, "the real fact is that Gresham's greatest strength comes from those who always voted for Blaine. Look there," he ex claimed, pointing to where a workman was hoisting a portrait of Blaine into THE PLACE OF HONOR above those of Lincoln, Grant and other Republican ideals decorating the walls of the Gresham headquarters. "Does that look like enmity between us and the friends of Blaine?" One of the by standers, W. B. Roberts, of Indianapo lis, heartily seconded Mr. Fairbarik's re marks. "I am an enthusiastic Gresham man," said he, "and everybody who knows me knows that I have always been for Blaine. Any talk of a Blaine feeling against Gresham is the veriest, absolute rot." Col. Robert G. Ingersoll's name came up naturally in the references to Blaine, and the role that "Pope Bob" will play in the convention was explained. Col. Ingersoll is to make a speech for Gresham, but not in the convention. Before the time for the nominating ad dresses arrives, there will undoubtedly be one or more big, open mass meetings. It is at one of these huge gatherings that Col. Ingersoll is to make, the pie sumption is, "the greatest effort of his life." The question of who shall follow Leonart Swett in the convention and second the nomination of Gresham has been settled. The honor will go to John R. Lynch, the Mississippi colored member of the Republican national committee. He it was who created a favorable impression as the temporary chairman of the national convention four years ago. The understanding is that a further seconding speech will be made by an Eastern delegate, whose name is yet withheld, a New Englander known throughout the nation. What was regarded as little short of the explosion of a bomb in the Gresham camp was A DECLARATION FOR BLAINE, coming from W. E. Kent, of Chicago, one of the two first delegates in Illinois that were instructed for Gresham. Kent represents the Second Illinois dis trict, the Finerty-Lawler territory, where two-thirds of the voters are Irish or Americans. "I am only speaking for myself," he was quoted, but you will find that I shall have lots of company, and the forty-four Illinois delegates if they are needed. I have made up my mind to disregard the instructions and vote for Blaine. Why, because there is going to be a dead-lock without a doubt and then a break for Blaine, and the Repub licans in my district are solid for him anyway." To-night the Gresham managers stated that they had assurances Kent would vote for Gresham all right, and that his expression was simply in con versation with a Blaine friend during the exuberance of the moment, and to show a friendly feeling for the old chief. JONES AND HIS COHORTS. The Republican National Com mittee Meets, and After Snub bing Chicago, Adjourns. Chicago, June 14.— inauguration of the formalities before the call to order of the Republican national con vention, took place to-day at noon, when the members of the Republican national committee assembled at their head quarters to settle all preliminaries.

Mr. Clarkson, of Iowa, called attention to the matter of selecting a chaplain.-" One committeeman facetiously moved that no chaplain be selected by the name of Burchard. Chairman Jones though t the officers of the convention would have enough to do to attend to their own prayers. The matter of prayers: and chaplains was then promptly relegated to the subcommittee on arrangements. The committee at 1 p. m. adjourned until 8 o'clock to-morrow night. Will Travel in Style. Baltimore, June 14.— Seven hand somely decorated sleeping cars, bear ing the legends, "Escort to the Mary land Delegation" and "Protection to American Industry," will leave Balti more for Chicago Sunday morning at 10 o'clock on the Baltimore & Ohio rail road, tour of the cars will be occupied by the Young Men's Republican club of this city, one car by the Maryland delegation to the Republican national convention, and two will bear the Young Men's Republican club of Wilmington, Del.

HOW THEY KILLED HIM. * One of the Murderers of Rancher Lowell Makes a Clean Breast of His Crime. Sacramento, Cal., June Henry Myers, implicated with John Olsen and Dagger in the murder of John Lowell, a wealthy rancher of Folsom, Cal., has made a statement in which he said he became acquainted with Lowell two months before the murder, which was committed Sunday, March 24, last. Lowell at the time spoke about selling his property, as the neighbors were un friendly to him, and as Myers knew something about stock, asked the latter to sell his horses for him. Subsequently, on March 22, Myers went with Olsen and Dagger to Lowell's ranch to obtain employment cutting wood. On arriving at the ranch Olsen suggested that as they were all poor they should put Lowell out of the way and divide the large amount of money he had and what they could realize from the sale of stock, harness and vehicles. A plan was formed, and after breakfast the four went out to look at the wood they were to cut. Lowell was two feet in' front of Myers when the latter fired the shot which killed him. The body was then wrapped in canvas and buried under some loose dirt in the cellar. When the men left the ranch they took several horses with them, which they sold, and divided the proceeds. Myers then tied south under an as sumed name. Olsen going to Sutter county, while Dagger remained in Sac ramento. -**> KILLED THEM BOTH. A Farmer Terminates the Career of His Wife and Her Supposed Paramour. Special to the Globe. Carthage, 111,, June John Lau ray, a farmer living near Westport, a small village near here, this morning shot and killed his wife and her sup posed paramour, Abraham Clark, a farm hand. For some time Lauray had not lived happily with his wife and charged her with being unfaithful. This morning he became enraged at her. Seizing a shot gun he shot her twice; once in the side and once in the left temple. Lauray then cooly reloaded the gun and started for the field, where Clark was working. Walking up be hind the young man Lauray emptied both barrels of the weapon into his back and then fled. Clark, though fearfully wounded, managed to crawl toLaurav's house, where he found the wife almost unconscious. Mrs. Lauray died at noon and Clark lingered until 4 o'clock. Be fore dying Clark made a statement to the effect that no criminal intimacy had ever existed between him and "Mrs. Lauray. An armed body of men are in pursuit of Lauray. -^ PLAYS THE BABY ACT. .* ~~~~~~~~~~ ~-.^-." v -^''""i A Notorious Smuggler Attempts < Clear His Skirts. M Indian APOiJS,Ind., Junel4.— ! Labelle, the opium smuggler captured-, here last Saturday, to-day made full confession to Collector Kuhne. . He said, that he had been employed by parties in Ontario since January last to follow up and forward consignments of goods to California, and during that . time he had forwarded two consignments from Fort Wayne, one from Logansport, one unusually large one from Cincin nati, one from Columbus, O., and one from Lansing, Mich., and was about to' forward the one from this city when he was captured by the United States offi cers. The gang first began shipping di rect to California, but afterwards through Oregon, and severally through Victoria, B. C. ; Winnipeg, Man., and St. Thomas, Out., whence the opium: captured here came. Labelle still claims that he was ignorant of the fact that he was forwarding smuggled goods, and says that the capture in this city. was the first knowledge that he was"en gaged in a criminal business. : : ••■ •■*' : STILL ONJHE RISE.

Murderer Havens Convicted — Schultz's Plum — Echoes of the Storm. Special to the Globe. Aitkin, Minn., June 14.— The Missis sippi river continues to rise. The water is higher than has been known for over twenty years. Settlers living along the river have been compelled to vacate house and home and take up their abode in wigwams, not because of danger, but it is uncomfortable living in submerged dwellings. The current is not strong. The steamboat Andy Gibson, which has been towing logs across Sandy Lake, came down to-day and brought down about 100 lumbermen. No driving can be done. The logs are all boomed and the lumbermen are waiting for the water to recede. Those who came in on the boat said they had not seen land for several days until they landed at Aitkin. Mud river is so high that steamboats came up to the bridge in Tibbetts' addition. The mill yards are somewhat saturated with the overflow of water. No danger is expected at Aitkin, as we are considered high and dry. CROPS ARE IN PERIL. Grasshoppers Destroying Every thing in Otter Tail County. Special to the Globe. Elbow Lake, Minn., June 14.— The farmers' institute opens here to-day. At its last session yesterday, in Battle Lake village, Prof. Lugger, state entomologist, addressed a large audience of farmers on the subject of grass hoppers. He had just returned from Perham, Otter Tall county, where he had spent several days inspecting the situation. The pests came in there .four years ago from the Eocky mountains, colonizing there and re maining ever since. The fact That they have become acclimated to the special locality, multiplying in a soil very unlike their former mountain environment renders the situation imminent. Gov. McGill and the Otter Tail County commissioners are taking special pains to break up the broods. It is too late now to destroy their eggs and check their devastation. DIVISION IN THE RANKS. An Attempt Being Made to Split the Manitoba Cabinet. Special to the Globe. Winnipeg, Man., Jnne There is division in the government ranks, and an effort is being made to force Attor ney General Martin out of the cabinet, as he is too straight to wink at the hood ling propensities of a certain gang. Premier Greenway, speaking on the matter to-day, said: "There is a gang down town I need not individualize, nor need I refer to their habits, but mere ly remark that they are boodlers, and just because they cannot job a con tract from the government, and just be cause Mr. Martin refuses to wink at their schemes, they all turn about and denounce him. The fact of the matter is, there is not a straighter or more effi cient member of my cabinet than Mr. Martin. He will not swerve an inch from what he thinks is right. He works from morning till night trying to evolve order out of the legacy of Chase which our predecessors left us, and as for me 1 am goinc to stick to Martin. Do you think I would go bank on a man whom I know to be doing his duty as fearlessly and honestly as ever man did'.' That is not my stamp. The time is not far distant when the country will recog nize Mr. Martin's worth. I know he is gruff; he hasn't time to talk people out of their ideas, but in the end he is just as well and as much thought of as those who make believe they will do some thing and never do it. We will not stoop to make friends or pollute evil. When we came in here we promised to "Hew to the line, let the chips fall where they may," and we propose to do it. I would sooner retire than to sub mit to the dictation of the gang. We could at least go out with clean skirts, but if we were to boodle we would ulti mately go out in disgrace. Those are my sentiments, and I don't care who knows them. The existence of my gov ment is not dependent upon any gang."

Considerable Damage Done About Forman by a Storm. Special to the Globe. Fohman, Dak., June 14.— A severe wind and thunder storm, approaching the magnitude of a tornado, traversed this county from northwest to south east about 6 o'clock last evening, and lasted about an hour, doing much dam age. Reports are being received here to-day detailing losses on all sides. At Rutland, eight miles southeast, the new opera house was totally demolished; Dyste brothers' store front was blown out; Ross' store front was wrecked, and a shed adjoining the Journal office was carried away. A dwelling house was also upset, and numerous barns and other buildings were badly damaged. No loss of life is yet reported, "though quite a number had very narrow es capes, two different rigs* being blown over on the prairie and their occupants badly shaken up. At this place the wind did no damage, but the lightning killed a mule in Dyste's barn and a cow belonging to S. F. Mullin and prostra ted H. B. Rome.
