McKinley, who is at least no traitor,
demands that no more votes be cast for
him while Sherman is a candidate. It
will be observed that blatant Foraker
has made no such demand.
Mis. Blame may now be put to the
trouble of writing another letter. Will
it be one of acceptance or of declina
tion? It is said the distinguished gen
tleman has erased the latter word from
his lexicon.

The growing appreciation which the
people of the Twin Cities are coming to
have of the summer resorts with which
nature has provided them in the neigh
boring lakes was well illustrated yester
Though the day was cool enough to
make even the atmosphere of the cities
decidedly comfortable, and the hotels at
the lakes were but just opened, never
theless every outgoing train carried a
goodly number of people, and the -vicin
ity of the lakes presented a decidedly
animated appearance. It is not well
that the appreciation of the grand reser
voirs of health and wholesome enjoy
ment which nature has conferred upon
Minnesota should be appreciated alone
by visitors from beyond the borders of
the state. It is not given to
many in the Northwest, where all
are workers and where drones find no
congenial companionship, to spend
many days in the idleness, however de
sirable, of a vacation. But there are
few who cannot once a week run out to
a near-by lake for a day's or a few
hours' pleasuring. The resulting ben
efit in rest-brought to hotly and mind is
Hot small. In the aggregate it is marked
and noteworthy.
The stay-at-home club in the two
cities is a very large one, comprising,
indeed, almost the entire population. It
should make the lakes its regular meet
ing place. •
There is no. more gratifying feature of
the building boom which is assuming
such satisfactory proportions in St. Paul
at present than the large number of
dwelling houses which are being erected.
Though the speculative element in
St. Paul real estate has pretty well dis
appeared the market is in an exceed
ingly healthy condition, because the
large majority of sales is to those who
desire to" improve. This disposition
finds its complement in the wide-spread
house building of this season. In every
section of the city it is to be seen, but
particularly in the suburbs, where the
amount of it being -done, taking' into
consideration the inadequate transporta
tion facilities, is little short . of aston
ishing. - Naturally the building is
greater 'at those points which pos
sess some means of access to. the
city, but even in comparatively isolated
suburbs it is by no means insignificant,
and affords an ; intimation of what the
result would be were those means of
transportation" to and from the city in
existence. This transportation, and the
assured consequent building of hun
dreds of more houses, can only be pos
sible through the extension of the cable
line' and by the building of elevated
roads. L A generous municipal policy,
keeping in view the rights of property
owners, is necessary to secure these fa
cilities, and should be adopted without
St. Paul, in justice to herself, can not
afford to allow anything to stand in the
way of the easy establishment of homes,
ami, though the house building of this
season is great, it is in spite of the
lack of transportation accommodations
which other Western cities are gener
ally very ready to furnish. With one or
more elevated- roads the impetus that
would be given it wouid be tremendous.

The climax of a weary week of schem
ing and of plotting is likely to be
reached at Chicago to-day. Worn out
by delay and fruitless efforts, the sup
porters of the various presidential can
didates may submit to the inevitable,
and allow the consummation of the
plans which, shrewdly matnred,wcre as
sure of fruition the first day the con
vention met as they seem this morning.
It does not now seem as though any
human agency, except his own, could
prevent the nomination of Mr. Blame.
It is in the air; and, what is of more con
sequence, in the minds of a majority of
the delegates. The moment toward
which every event of the convention
has been converging is at hand. When
it arrives it will bring with it the nom
ination of James G. Blame. 7 : ; - ;
The Democratic party looks forward
to the interesting event with as much
equanimity as a large portion of the Re
publican party does with disgust.
For the anti-BLAiNE forces have been
growing very ugly of late. Theirs is the
desperation and the rage of defeated
men. Our dispatches show plainly
their temper. They are not in a mood
to be trifled with, and yet, unless Mr.
Blame himself comes to their rescue,
they will be ruthlessly trodden under
If this be Republican harmony, we
congratulate the party, that it has not
yet reached a state of Republican dis
"^■* •
Reason cannot appeal to him. Senti
ment finds no lodgment in his bosom.
He is not torn by the passions of the
fray. Not even the defeat that over
shadows his cause can move this man.
His personality -. has been a po
tent factor in working out his own de
struction. With him dies the strongest
type of cold, selfish, unpatriotic calcula
tion in politics that it has been the
country's bad fortune to suffer from
since bellum days.
Mr. Sherman says that he will not
withdraw. Little the odds whether he
does or not. The Democracy could ask
no greater favor of its foes than his nom
ination. The Republican party could
hardly show greater wisdom than in re
jecting him. -
It is a common fault of statesmen of
the type of John Sherman to blind
themselves to their own actual small
ness. Perception is swallowed up in
a mass -of egotism. Rebuke after re
buke from the people fails to impress
upon them any knowledge of their own
When the heavens crack and the por
tals of hades yawn it is not too much to
expect that in the train of candidates for
admission to the haven of rest the shade
of John Sherman will be discovered,
stubbornly declining to withdraw or to
do . anything else but contemplate
John Sherman.

Debauchery in politics finds a fitting
exponent in the ; person of Steve
Elkins, the chosen mouthpiece of Mr.
Blame, and the boss of the convention
now in progress at Chicago.
To the honest student of the political
history of this decade, Steve Elkins
will remain a type of what is debasing
and unholy in the partisan systems
He is not a man of brain nor a com
mander of honor. His is not a magnetic
personality. He is that most despicable
roue of roues in political life a player
upon the passions, the weaknesses. of
men. This has been his strength in
Chicago. This is the keynote to his
career. He is raised to his high estate
by bad eminence. The pure and good
of both parties could rejoice together
over his downfall. Together they can
lament at his power.
Nothing could point with more telling
force to the dangers liable to arise from
Republican supremacy, than the her
alded fact that Steve Elkins would be
a power behind'the throne at Washing
'-.;. -»•---»■
The one question before the people of
the country, the question beside which
all others are dwarfed into comparative
insignificance, is whether, the present
high taxes shall be maintained or re
duced. Suppose, lor instance, that the
city of St. Paul were, collecting several
million dollars a year more than the ex
penditures of the city required.
The treasury would soon be filled to
overflowing, cand an ever-increasing
temptation would be presented to the
council for the wildest kind of extrava
gance. Do you not suppose that with
such a state of tilings the taxpayers
would rise in their might and not only
demand, but enforce the reduction of
the tax rate to the necessities of the city
government economically administered?
That is precisely what obtains on a
larger scale in the general government.
The Democrats and a good many Re
publicans insist that these taxes shall
be reduced. The Republican party,
under the dictation of the men who ben
efit by high taxes, insist that they shall
remain as they are. That is the whole
situation in a nutshell. Notwithstanding
the fact that Republicans who believe
in a reduction of the taxes ' were in the
convention, their voice was not heard.
The rulers of the convention are birds
of a feather, and they don't intend that
any not of their kind should flock with
As they are so are the candidates
whom they have put forward. From
Blame to Rusk, from the head to the
tail of the list, they are birds of a
feather, the beneficiaries of a high
tariff under which the people have suf
fered, and the pledged champions of an
iniquitous system against which the
people have cried out in vain. *V--r
There is every indication now that the
bill providing for an international copy-"
right, which has been urged and
brought to a favorable stage by bound
less exertion on the part of the literary
men of the country, will fail to become
a law. .. . . ' -:"^y^hi'-%
The difficulty does not now lie with
congress, which, after a deal of trouble
and many years' waiting, has at last been
brought to realize the common sense
underlying the measure, but with Great
Britain, whose literary men have joined
with their , American brethern in de
manding the copyright. " That govern
ment-refuses to pass a reciprocal
measure, and of course the matter is
brought to a standstill. There 7is on
both sides of the water a good deal of
opposition to the ' copyright bill' from
people who raise the cry that _ literature
should be made as cheap to the people
as possible.
This is reasonable and right enough,
but it should not be with the alterna- -;
tive of making the people the receivers
of stolen goods. That is precisely what
the printing in England of American
books or the printing in America of
English books amounts. to. A man
should have the benefit of the products
of his own brain, at least for a definite
term of years, no matter what country
he may live in.
In this connection the case of the
author is analogous to that of the in
ventor. The latter may patent his in
vention in any land and enjoy the ex
clusive benefits and profits arising from .
it. The author may copyright his works
only in his own country, and must give
them without compensation to all others.
Nothing could be more unjust.
Congress should .at least put this
country on record as favoring the side
of justice. It should pass the copy
right bill, with the proviso that it shall
not take effect until Great Britain
adopts , a similar measure, and thus
allow the stream of energy displayed by
the literary men to be concentrated in
one channel. ; ;_:;".._.
The public school commencements
have emphasized the fact that there is
a likelihood of considerable crowding
when, the fall term begins. Nearly
15,000 pupils have been enrolled during
the past year, and if the rate of increase
of former years is maintained there will
be an enrollment in the fall of nearly
To care for this number the capacity
of the schools will be taxed to the ut
most, and may be inadequate. The
High school particularly is likely to suf
fer from the crowding. A class number
ing nearly 200 will present itself for ad
mission, and the room is already scant.
This condition of affairs should be rem
edied with all possible speed. In no di- ■
rection can the city better afford gen
erosity than in providing ample educa
tional facilities. There should be no
cramping or crowding in the slightest
degree. If additional school houses
are necessary, they should be erected
without • question. So far as the
High school is concerned, it is a
question whether the growing demand
for accommodation is sufficiently met
by the erection of an addition. In the
near future; as the size of the next
class to be admitted well indicates, the
building of another High school will be
absolutely necessary. it would be
found exceedingly convenient now. In
addition to the ordinary accommodations
there is a need ot room for the instruc
tion in manual training, which is be
coming an important factor in the cur
riculum of the public schools.
Admirable as the public school system
of "St. Paul is, there is yet a great deal
of room for improvement, both in the
accommodations afforded and in the
courses of instruction. It is to be hoped
that the various problems connected
therewith will meet with the thought
ful consideration of the proper.authori
ties during the summer vacation.
Pound Public Sentiment.
Jackson Republic.
The St. Paul Globe some time since sent
postal cards to 500 Republicans throughout
the state, asking the preferences or the re
cipients for president and governor. Up to
last Monday night 457 replies had been re
ceived, and the poll showed that Gresham
was the choice of 206, Blame 201, and the '
rest scattering. For governor McGill had
133, Gilman 123, Scheffer 109, Merriam 53,
Knute Kelson 5, E. M. Wilson 13. Ames 7,
and the rest scattering. The Globe has by
this method arrived at about the feelings of
the people of Minnesota. While you cannot
find a Merriam man in our town, you can
find plenty for McGill. He seems to be the
only one without a barrel, and as such would
receive the vote of Republicans in this local
ity. McGill is evidently unfortunate in not
having boodle enough to invest ifl a few
newspapers, but then the people do most of
the voting, anyway.
An Organ's Tactics.
Houston Argus.
Scene, office of editor-in-chief of the Pio
neer Press: Enter Mr. Carle, managing
editor. To him Mr. Wheelock says: "I have
sent for you, Mr. Carle, to suggest that a
great political campaign is now on and it is a
case of life or death with the G. O. P. If its
back is broken this year we will have to move
into other political quarters, and there isn't
anything open just now except the Prohibi
tion house, and we haven't been giving
that a very good name, you know, and
our reception might be denied, anyway
it would bo cool. So you see the impor
tance of the contest to us. Now, what I
wished particularly to say is that if any of
the young men on the staff should turn in
any copy about reducing the tariff, just run
your blue pencil through it, or lay it away in
the general topic drawer until after election.
And, by the way. please tell the exchange
editor to pass for the present those country
exchanges which talk any iree trade non
sense; tell him to make "The Voice of the
State Press" as loyal as he can get it. The
P-P. Mr. Carle, will go very strong on the
civil service reform dodge until after elec
tion. Just one further suggestion. See that
the news editor is careful about letting in
anything aboyt these strikes and reducing
wages. It might jar with our editorial mat
ter, you know.
Maginnis for Congress.
Morris Sun.
Some time since the Sun suggested to the
Democratic congressional convention, when
it meets at Fergus Falls, the advisability of
seriously considering the name of Hon. C. P.
Maginnis, of Duluth, for the nomination.
And we have been indorsed by all the lead- .
ing Democratic papers in the district, and a
large number in other parts of the state.
It may safely be asserted that should
Mr. Maginnis accept the nomination
he will reduce the Republican majority
to a point that will make the ' Fifth dis
trict extremely doubtful. Mr. Maginnis is
well known as a tariff reformer, who means
by reform that the tax shall be reduced, and
who has not talked reform to blind people or
for the strength it might bring to hi_t. ne
has always been a farmer, and no one knows
better than he the needs of that important
class and as a public officer he knows -his
duty and is fearless in discharge of same.
We know of no man who can combine the
strength of the East and West ends of this
great Fifth district equal to Maginnis.
Not Solid.
Long Prairie Leader. '•-...-*<*
The Republican nominee for congress in
this district barely got his nomination on the
forty-fifth ballot after a two days' fight. A
majority of but one vote. This district is
not solid for Comstock, but at the same time
the G. O. P. nop guns will try and make their
readers believe it is.
A Good Choice.

It is very evident that the Democrats of
Minnesota are rapidly concentrating upon
Eugene Wilson, of Minneapolis, as a candi

made. _■;*';.

Special to the Globe.
Washington, June 24.— senate
intends to devote most of the time dur
ing the week to the consideration of ap
propriation bills, with a view to com
pleting the work of the house as rapidly
as it is received. The river and harbor
bill will be taken up Monday or Tues
day. The legislative, executive and ju
dicial appropriation bill will be report
ed from the committee not later than
Tuesday, and this measure will consume
some of the week. Mr. Hoar intends to
deliver a speech on the fisheries treaty
at the first available opportunity. In
the house to-morrow the first question
to be disposed of is under the manage
ment of the committee on public build
ings and grounds, and is the one on
which the house was divided yesterday
when it adjourned. The committee on •
public buildings and grounds will make
an effort to hold the day for the comple
tion of various bills it has on the calen
dar, but the committee on public lands
will demand the day for the completion'
of the general land bill. According to
the rules which govern the house the
committee on the District of Columbia
is entitled to to-morrow, but there is no
probability that it will secure, the day.
Chairman Mills intends to demand that
work on the tariff bill be resumed as
soon as the Republican members return
from the Chicago convention.

England Mildly Speculating Over
His Identity.
Special Cable to the Globe.
London, June 24.— The intelligence
from Suakim recently that a white pasha
had made his appearance in the Bohr-
El-Ghazel provinces with a large force
of men has given rise to endless specu
lation in England. It is suggested by
some, who have never been convinced
of the death of Gen. Gordon, that that :
officer has escaped from Khartoum, and
that the white pasha causing the mahdi
so much anxiety is he. Others incline
to the belief that Edmund Donovan,
the famous war correspondent of the
London Daily Mews, who is generally
supposed to have perished with the ill
fated expedition of Gen. Hicks, or that
possibly some member of Pasha Hicks'
force, which has been kept in confine
ment by the natives, and who has now
escaped, is the new found pasha. Still
another, and perhaps more plausible
explanation of the existence of this
white man, is that Stanley has jour
neyed to Emm Bey, and that together
the explorers are forcing their way west
ward. Further news of this mystical
personage is awaited with the greatest
interest. Letters received from Herbert
Ward, who has been with Maj. Bartel
lot, and who is now on his way home,
state that there has been fearful suffer
ing among all of Maj. Bartellot's force,
and at one time they were ; near death's
door, on account of the scarcity of pro
visions. Sixty-nine men, : Ward said,
actually did starve. :__;

says that in addressing the bundesrath
on Friday Prince Bismarck said: "The
emperor holds that his first duty is to
maintain the imperial constitution and
protect the territory of the empire and
its rights, such protection applying
alike to the treaty rights of the federal
states individually and as a whole. It
will be the emperor's task to foster mu
tual confidence and union with the same
care that was exercised by his predeces

the attachment of the federal states and

Washington, D. C, June 24.—Sena
tor and Mrs. John Sherman were sitting
out on the high stoop of their house
when the correspondent called there
this evening to ask the senator what he
thought about the situation in Chicago.
It was a hot night, but the senator ap
peared cool and quite at ease, and, al
though every one else was going about
with as little on as possible, the Ohio
candidate had his vest buttoned up and
a straw hat on his head. By his side
was a glass of lemonade, which he had
just been enjoying. "Is it true, Mr.
Senator," said the correspondent, "that
you have received a dispatch from your
managers in Chicago asking you to
withdraw, and that Mr. McKinley is the
only man who can be nominated by the
anti-Blame votes, and for the sake of
harmony • and having Ohio name the
nominee they are anxious that you
should sanction this arrangement?"
The senator paused for a few moments,
then he slowly and with distinct em
phasis said: .••_.';•
--"I will neither deny nor affirm having
received such a dispatch. Have re-,
ceived so many dispatches to-day that I
do not care to say .what correspondence
has passed between here and Chicago
relative to. my nomination."
- "Then it is a fact that you decline to
withdraw?" •-;
"Most certainly it is. I do not in
tend to withdraw. I shall remain in
the race until the last."
■ "Do you believe there is any danger
of the convention taking up Mr. Mc-
Again the senator stopped as if to
think, and thou continued: -.Mr. Mc-
Kinley seems to have some strength
simply because he is not an avowed
candidate. If his name should be be
fore the convention regularly then he
would be in just the same position as
all the rest of us are. I mean that it
would then probably be McKinley
against the field and the field would
combine to defeat him, as it is now com
bining to defeat all the nominees. That
is why McKinley appears to be strong
at the present time. If he were once
placed in nomination it would then re
main to be seen how strong he really

"I do not. The delegation have been
instructed for me by two successive
state conventions, and in addition every
district convention has instructed its
delegates for me. In the face of this I
don't see how it would be possible for
the delegation to abandon me until I am
willing that they should do so, and I
have not vet signified that I am will

"It was evidently done with the in
tention of combining the vote of the
two doubtful' states New York and In
diana. You will notice that he got some
support from Connecticut and New Jer
sey. It was plain that, they wanted to
show that the four states considered to
be in doubt were willing to support Har
rison, and that the convention would
have to follow their lead. But it did not
do so, .and the movement failed of its
purpose." "__•'.._ -
"Do you think it is possible that Mr.
Blame's name can come squarely before
the convention?" ■_— '....- ■...
"It would not surprise me at all if,
Monday, Mr. Depew, in an eloquent
speech, would either present Mr.
Blame's name or else formally announce
that New York cast her vote for him."
"What would be the result?"
"Mr. Blame then would be in the
same position as all the other candi
dates. Their friends would naturally
combine against him, and it would then
be a question as to whether Mr. Blame
had a majority of the delegates. If he
has a majority why, of course, he will
be nominated, but he will be nominated
like any other ordinary candidate. If
his friends imagine that he can be
nominated without a call of the states,
or by acclamation, they are very much
mistaken. That is the way I regard it."
"But do you not believe that there is
a stroug Blame undercurrent?"
"There may be perhaps, but that will
have to be developed, and can only be
by arollcall." ..^ESI '•;-'.-' V
"Referring to yourself, do you think
you can continue to hold your strength?"
"1 do not see why not. The ballots
show that it has fluctuated but little.
Some of the delegates from the South,
who are naturally supposed to be for
me, knowing that 1 have always been a
friend of the South, have voted for
Alger. It has been openly said in Chi
cago, although, of course, I do not
know how true it is, that money con
siderations have influenced their action.
I can hold the Ohio delegation and my
vote in Pennsylvania, I think, and
generally all the other votes that • have
been heretofore cast for me."
"How do you regard the probable out
come?" i:i
--"It is all in doubt. If Mr. Blame
comes before the convention I do not
see why the Alger men should go for
him, because that would compel the
Michigan man to draw out. Mr. Blame
would have to try and get Mr. Allison's
hundred votes or so.and Mr. Gresham's,
and Gen. Harrison's, and I do not un
derstand why these gentlemen should
divide, that Mr. McKinley should lead
one" way and Gov. Foraker the other, it
would make them no nearer the end.

while now they are united on me." ■ .■:

Chicago 24, Special— adjourn
ment without a ballot, which might have
been decisive, leaves the * situation as
complex as it ever has been. Now it is
Blame against the field, with the field
apparently growing in size and earnest
ness of opposition to what appears to be
a juggling scheme conducted not in
Blame's best interests nor for the good
of the party. The conference held yes
terday was continuing its labors in one
form or another nearly all night, and
will go on to-day. By this evening some
thing may be decided on, and by Mon
day morning a well-formulated plan to
govern the action of that part of the
convention which is anxious to preserve
the party from the embarrassments of a
nomination made in the face of a posi
tive refusal , twice announced. Mr.
Blame has been cabled by the leading
men of the conferehce.and a reply from
him settling the . matter one way or the- -
other, is expected by Monday morning
in time to be placed before the conven
tion. At the head of the contingent
which is trying to juggle the convention
into weariness and whipsaw ;j enough
votes to beat candidate after candidates
is Steve Elkins. There is in this town a
growing; and entirely obvious preju
dice against Steve Elkins," and the
cablegrams to Blame is \ expected to put
the convention in possession of some in
formation on the authority which Elkins
has to make such statements , as that
which he often gives utterance to. . "Ac
cept?" said Elkins to Senator Hiscock
yesterday, "of course he will accept."
To all appearances Steve Elkins is still
running" the convention. From a perch
behind the chairman he pulls the wires
which make things dance. Steve is all
smiles, and cannot resist the tempta
tion to boast of the success he has so far
met with in holding the Republican
party up by the tail. Day before yes
terday Elkins bragged of the neatness
and despatch with which he had put the
knife to poor old John Sherman. Yes
terday he was laughing at the ease with
which he had caused Ben Harrison : to
dance like a puppet .. before the glitter
ing prize of fame, and then disappear
from the scene. Last night Elkins was
begging the opposition to bring on more
of its warriors, promising to take them,
one by one, and lay them away in
their political shrouds. Hitherto, this
man Elkins, whose skill and energy as
a managing politician are almost phe
nomenal, has been working his wires
from under a cover more or less opaque.
For a few days he even went so far as
to pretend to be the loyal friend of
Harrison, and to be working honestly
for the Hoosier's nomination. He did
help arrange the New York deal and'
the .Maryland deal, but at the same
time he was passing the cue out to
other Blame delegations that the
nomination of Harrison should not be
permitted. Pulling Gen. Harrison up,
and raising the hopes of his friends, and
putting him in the bright glare of a
momentary success, Elkins then pro
ceeds to cut the rope and let Mr. Harri
son fall with a thud duller than the
worthy Hoosier's disappointment of
four years ago. : Growing bold with
success Elkius gradually unmasks him
self, and having, as he "mistakably sup
posed, killed the candidate to him most
objectionable, Gresham, he turns and
tries to destroy his weapon. Elkins'
betrayal of Harrison will live in
the history of bad politics as one
of the most flagrant cases on
record. Harrison stood for this nomina
tion in good faith. He had a corps of
adroit and faithful workers. If you
want to know their - opinion of Elkins
ask them. ; _ -
Of course Mr. Elkins smiles. His
programme is working beautifully.
Everybody is to have a fair chance— O,
yes. "We are making an honest effort
to select a candidate, Mr. Blame being
out. We are not trying to over-ride
anybody's rights." Of course not. It:
seems to be a most pacific and lovable
programme. See how it works . Sher
man being selected for the first victim,
some oi his Southern supporters who
are at heart Blame men are loaned out
to Alger. Sherman has . his chance at
the balloting, but in a vital question
like the Virginia contest and tactical
question like the adjournment, the
Blame contingent rises solidly against
time and destroys him. Then Harrison
has his day in court. Elkins boosts him
and Depew comes along and gives
a lift. Depew goes to Harrison out
of a feeling of resentment toward
Allison, but also because he knows
Elkins is merely playing with the
Hoosier. Up to date Depew has not de
veloped as much ability in managing
a lot of politics as he is supposed to pos
sess in law, legislatures and railroad
ing. In fact, he makes a mess of it.
The truth is that, after his chagrin over
his own candidacy, Depew wanted to do
something brilliant. He wanted to
name the president. He took up Har
rison in dead earnest, hoping to do
great things with him. Piatt, Hiscock
and Miller assented, the last-named be
cause he knew Sherman was beaten,
and the first two because they knew
Elkins, Clayton, Boutelle and others
would take good care Mr. Harrison was
not nominated. It really was unkind of
them to let Chaunceyrun into this trap,
but they had to run him into something
m order to loosen his grip on the New
York delegation and give them a chance
to take hold. Elkins' sudden dropping
of the Harrison boom is explained by
his fear that the combination was be
coming too strong, and that Harrison
might be nominated.
Harrison, according to the present
programme, is to have one more chance.
His friends have complained so bitterly
about this blowing-out process that the
manipulators have decided to give him
an opportunity Monday morning- to
make a final rally. New York will
again support him fifty or more strong,
and if Pennsylvania can be brought in
Harrison will be sent nearer than ever
to the nomination. Persons who hope
for this must remember that the Blame
votes promised to Harrison are likely to
be called off at any time. In other
words, the intention is to let the Hoos
ier approach the winning post, but not .
quite reach it. The Gresham men are
reiied upon to break the Indiana dele
gation again, possibly to the extent of
five or six votes, and if they do that the
business of bowling Mr. Harrison out
will be completed in short order. Then
the juggling will go on with another
candidate, doubtless Allison, as the vic
A little light was cast on the adjourn
ment matter and the Blame programme
by a remark which Eikins let. fall dur
ing the call of the roll last evening.
"The Harrison boys wanted another
ballot," said he, "but I told them it
would do them no good. If we were to
take a ballot now Blame's vote would
jump to 150, and you know what would
follow. They are talking of a combina
tion on McKiuley and of another on
Gresham. We'll let them have all the
chance they want and adjourn till Mon
day." Thus we see how easy the Eikins
game is. When one candidate forges
ahead, perhaps with the Blame men
helping him for appearance sake, then
the ether candidates join hands and
ask an adjournment. They are always
assisted by the Blame delegations from
Maine, Arkansas, California and such
strongholds. It is a pretty sort of razzle
dazzle this — a skillful game of juggling
with candidates who in great measure
appear to be puppets. The Blame con
tingent helps one candidate a little and
draws from another, first building up
Harrison only pull , him down, and
then, according to programme, pointing
more and more toward Allison as next
on the list of sacrifices. There is talk
of New York standing faithfully to
Harrison if there is any chance for his
nomination, but Depew has become im
pressed with the idea that it is about
time for Blame, and his lieutenants,
Hasted and Robertson, are talking
Blame in the loudest sort of way.
The Blame men can't, see why the
other candidates don't withdraw. They
are getting a little impatient to have the
field cleared. But the field is rather
obstinate. At 2 o'clock yesterday a
telegram was sent . John Sherman ask
ing if he had any objections to the Ohio
vote being cast for McKinley if it should
seem that was the best way to head off
the Blame business. At 3 o'clock Sher
man replied to the effect that the dele
gation must decide • that. Mr. Sher
man's, telegram was dignified and in
good tone, and was construed to grant a
release to the delegation from all obli
gations to him. Of course, under the
circumstances,he could not say anything
about going for McKiuley, because For
aker also lived in that state. An effort
was made to bring the Ohio delegation
to McKinley's support, but Foraker and
Foster opposed it, and the delegation
appeared to be about equally divided in
preferences. Gov. Foster says Ohio
wants no more Garfieldism, but Foster
is a Foraker man, and probably much
depends upon the name of the man who
is to be the Garfield. Finding it impos
sible to lay Sherman aside and take up •
a new Ohio candidate, Mr. Butter
worth immediately sent out denials of
the report that Sherman had consented
to withdraw.- - _P*§S^-i*% _:-%-.. _.-'..-
The field, being unable to concentrate
anywhere has decided to stand firm in
detachments. According to the Blame
idea Sherman is beaten and Harrison
is beaten, but both Sherman and Harri
son are going to stand firm when the
fray shall begin anew Monday morning.
The Alger, Allison, and Gresham men
will . do : likewise. Said a prominent
New Yorker, one of the Blame.m en:
"We . are ••to : give Harrison another
chance, but notice has . been served
his friends that they must make a
rally ; on the first : ballot. If they, fail
I expect to see Allison taken up, and if
he fails, too, I then look for the nomina
tion of Blame." - -
"Do -. Gresham's friends demand a
chance?" ; -. - • :
-. i' Well, =we can't stay here all sum
mer."- .
.Yet Gresham's friends believe he has
a good chance, and are determined to
stand by him. Illinois is firm, and Wis
consin, Minnesota, and West Virginia
were _ yesterday ; called together, and •
agreed to come _ strong to their real
favorite after Harrison has had another
hallot. " Should Harrison be destroyed
Monday morning, as now seems likely.
Judge Gresham's friends will demand
careful consideration of his availability.
Gresham has constantly grown
upon;. the better -sense of the con
vention, and the . malice of his
enemies has not sufficed to ob
scure his splendid personality and his
qualifications as a vote-getter. Allison
is strong, particularly with the sena
torial syndicate that is taking such a
prominent hand here, but he was not a
soldier and" comes . from a Republican
state. Gresham has been turned over
and over, and he is seen to be strong
everywhere. He wears well. With
Harrison out, Indiana will go to him,
and with Indiana he should win. From
various quarters come reports full of
encouragement to Gresham, and he will
be pressed to the front at the proper
moment. .
Elkins has claimed more than 500
votes in this convention for Blame.
Many people believed this to be there.
But I have seen a list of the reliable
Bloine delegates prepared by lieuten
ants of ex-Senator Piatt, and it contains
the names of just 423 delegates, a bare
majority of the whole. So there is some
bluff about this programme to convince
the Republican party that it has but
one man, as well as some audacity.
In view of the prejudice while
overplaying of the bowling-out game
is rousing this slender majority
may give way. And yet there
are signs of an increasing cohesiveness
to the Blame contingent. Many of the
Blame men were doubtless a majority
of those in New York and Pennsyl
vania, are honestly trying to select an
other candidate. So are some of those
from New England, but certain leaders
control a sufficient number of movable
votes to hold the balance of the power
as between the rivals in a scattered
field. While the field is scattered the
Blame votes go hither and yon, any
way to prevent a nomination, are mas
ters of the situation. As soon as one in
the field begins to grow towards success
the Elkins programme is to spring
Blame and sweep the platter. Accord
ing to Piatt's figures the \ majority is
slender, but it is well handled, cohesive,
instantly available. Besides Piatt's list
does no], contain the names of many del
egates who admire Blame and would
like to see him president, but who are
not in favor of his nomination at this
time. Some of these might be available
in an emergency. _

All the Business Portion of Hol
brook, Ariz., Destroyed.
Holbrook, Ariz., June Yester
day afternoon at 3 o'clock, fire started
in southwest portion of the town, de
stroying the entire business portion of
it. The fire originated in the wool
warehouse of H. H. Scores. It is be
lieved to have occurred from sponta
neous combustion. There was 10,000
pounds of wool consumed. The Hol
brook house was next burned,* followed
by the Atlantic and Pacific depot sec
tion house, two cars loaded with gov
ernment merchandise and twelve empty
freight cars, other stores, dwellings,
lodging houses andthe Wells-1 _irgo ex
press office. Considerable local freight
was burned with tne depot. The loss
to the railroad company will be over
$50,000. The loss to other property will
not be less than $100,000. The insurance
is probably small. There was a strong
wind blowing, and the effects of the
people were removed from their houses
only to be burned in the streets. No
loss of life has been reported. The
town is almost in runs, and with the ex
ception of half a car-load of flour, there
are no provisions of any kind to* be had.

John A. Langston- Sizes up the
Situation in a Few Words.
Chicago, : June 24.— John A. Lang*
ston, the colored ex-minister to Hayti*,
who seconded the nomination of Sher
man in the convention, declared flatly
to-day that the nomination 'of Blame
now would ruin the party, and that the
candidate must either be Sherman or a
man named by Sherman. \ Said Mr.
-Langston: "John Sherman holds tin
balance of power among the candidates
in the field. . We are going to hold fast
to our faith in Sherman and see what
developments to-morrow brings forth.
The Sherman forces hold the key to the
situation, and when the time comes
they will dictate the nominee. It will
finally be cither between Blame and
Sherman or a man named by Sherman."
"I was for Blame at Cincinnati in
1876," continued Langston warmly,
"and won over the • bishops of the col
ored church for him, notwithstanding
his record on the force bill. But Blame
cannot be nominated now without dis
honor, and if he should be prevailed on
to accept, it will be not only defeat for
Blame, but shipwreck to the Republican
. A Sherman-Allison Deal.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, June.— History is re
peating itself. In 1872 Allison and Wil
son formed a combination to defeat
Harlan for the senate. Allison de
veloped three votes more than Wilson,
and the latter gave his strength to Alli
son, who was elected, thus" defeating
Harlan. To-day Allison and Sherman
formed a similar alliance. Both will
stay in the field, and have so informed
their delegations. If Sherman has
niore votes than Allison then Sherman
is to have Allison's strength, and vice
versa. They are determined men, and
will stand by their' compact. Hence it
looks like Allison or Sherman from this
standpoint. One thing is certain, Sher
man is grimly determined that Mc-
Kinley shall not have Ohio if he can
help it.
Was Troubled in His Mind.
Macon Telegraph.
The drummers bring in a good story
occasionally. Alexander Subers was in
Griffin a few days ago, and while there
went into a barbershop to be shaved.
The barber wore a worried look, and
when he had Mr. Subers lathered he be
came loquacious,
'•Boss, I see in the paper about a dead
man's body being taken up, and he was
clean shaved when he was buried, but
when they took him up he had a full
beard. Is there any trvth in it'_ .'
"Oh, yes," replied the drummer. "I
read the account myself."
, "Clean shaved when he died?"
"Clean as mv baby." _ . ...
"And when they took him up he had
a full beard on his face?"
"Must be so; that other gentleman
what 1 shaved just now said so, too;
but it worries me mightily."
"Why should it worry you?"
"Well, they tell me" he was a good
man, and the only way 1 can make it
out is that he went to heaven, and
there ain't no barbers there. I'm going
to get out of this business and go into
something that I'll stand some chance
of getting to heaven in. Next

The Swords of the Late Kaiser.
Paris American Register.
In his will, written by himself, the
late Emperor William bequeathed to the
Hall of Glory the following ob.'ects:
The sword which he carried from 1810
to 1534, the sword he carried in the bat
tle of Koeniggraetz, July 3, 1866, and
all through the Austrian and Franco-
German wars, its blade having the
names of the principal battles en
graved upon it; the sword carried by '
him on parades; the sword inheri
ted from his brother King Frederick
William IV. ; all his decorations for
military merit, together with the pres
ents received on his military jubilees,
and his gold and silver laurel wreathes;
and finally the sword carried by his
father in the unlucky days of 1806 and
during the Napoleonic wars which, dur- -
ing the emperor's lifetime (as distinct
ly added by him) always stood by
his writing desk in the historic corner
room of the royal palace. As a souvenir
the Lichterfelde corps "of cadets re
ceived the sword presented to the em
peror in St. Petersburg in 1834, and car
ried by him until the morning of the
Koeniggraetz. Finally, the emperor
ordered the uniforms of all the regi
ments of which he was the honorary
commander to be distributed to the re
spective regiments.
Senator Palmer's Little Joke.
Senator Palmer must have his little
joke, even on the floor of tne senate, in
the midst of the most serious debate.
The other day some controversy arose
over the order of business. "Palmer
wanted his pleuro-pneumonia bill con
sidered. ' Piatt desired that the senate
should pass the bill providing: for the
admission of Dakota. Morrill wished
his bond purchase bill taken up, aud
two or three senators clamored for other
bills. Finally Mr. Palmer said: "I
would say in regard to the * compara
tive importance of the bills that I re
gard the pleuro-pneumonia bill, so
called.as of much more importance than
the admission of any territory. Dakota
would not ask for admission if pleuro
pneumonia were permitted to run riot
through that territory, The people
