Manderson agree to withdraw all opposition to the selection of a McKinley. delegation to the Re publican national convention. In re turn for this concession, the McKinley people bind themselves to present the name of Gen. Manderson to the conven tion unless in their judgment lt is ap parent that McKinley will v>e nominat ed. The conference took place at 11 o'clock this morning. It was attended by representatives of both sides. The McKinley side issued this proclamation: It is understood between the persons repre senting Hon. Charles F. Manderson and the committee acting as friends and supporters of Hon. William McKinley, and in the behalf of the McKinley club, that the delegation from Nebraska to the national convention shall be composed of sixteen original McKinley men, and that the Manderson headquarters will be closed. The following resolution -will be adopted by the state convention: Resolved, That the name of Hon. Charles F. Manderson be formally presented to the con vention as a candidate, unless, in the judg ment of the Nebraska delegation at the as sembling of the convention, it Is apparent that McKinley will be nominated for president. As a result of the agreement, the Manderson men are to make no fur ther contention. The delegation to St. Louis is to be composed of avowed McKinley men. The Manderson head quarters • have been closed. Mander son's many friends in Nebraska are not disposed to believe that McKinley will be the choice of the convention.

STATE IS FOR* PC BIT SEN TOR DAVIS WILL PROBA BLY RECEIVE A COMPLIMEN TARY VOTE. RESULTS OF THE PRIMARIES ENERALLY INDICATE SUCH SENTI MENT WHERE CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATES ARE CHOSEN. HENNEPIN MAT INDORSE WALKER. Whether the St. Louis Delegate* Are to Go I niuMtrueted or Not Re mains* to Be Seen. Strongly McKinley, with a kindly feeling for Davis, seems to be the tenor of Republican \ opinion not only locally, but throughout the state. Pri maries were held pretty generally yes terday, and in some .cases conven tions were held where the primaries had previously been -disposed of. The various congressional; district conven tions will be held today and Monday, except in the First district .where a mistake in the call set it for Friday next. How this will be gotten around the executive committe has not yet made public. The Fifth, or Minneapo lis district, holds its convention to day. The others, with the exception above mentioned, meet Monday. The prospect is that the only ques tion to come up when the state con vention meets Tuesday will be whether or not Davis shall be given a compli mentary vote. This will probably be done, unless It appears as a foregone conclusion that McKinley is to be chosen on the flr^t, or second ballot. Senator Davis' friends may be turned down, even in the selection of dele gates. Robert G. Evans, of Minneap olis, who was scheduled to make a spell-binding nominating speech for Minnesota's favorite son, has not been elected as yet, and there is a. chance that the Hennepin county convention, when it meets today, may indorse T. B. Walker instead of Evans. In St. Paul the delegates will be W. R. Mer riam and John F. Carroll, these hav ing been "practically, agreed upon. Capt. Castle, who was talked of, may go as an alternate. Senator Davis has been kept fully informed of the local sit uation, and, when asked If he desired to name 'the delegation from the dis trict, declined', stating that he was sat isfied to leave* the, matter in the hands of the voters. •"-' \* v MAY NOT INSTRUCT. I .<'. j£ But, while the -'delegates in a body will favor McKinley, it is not so cer tain that 'they*" will all be instructed. In, fact, it is intimated that in the First and Sixth resolutions favorable to Davis will be passed, al though Instructions to vote for him are hardly expected. In the First congressional district W. W. Parsons, of Mantorvllle, is the only known candidate for delegate at large, he being for Davis, with Mc- Kinley as second ( choice. Congress man Tawney, however, has been men tioned in connection with the place. As to district delegates, it is gen erally conceded that J. M. Diment, of Owatonna; Prof. L. S. Swenson, of Al bert Lea; and Archibald |D. Gray, of Preston, lead In the race. It is prob able that two of 'these three will be elected. Other parties who - are can didates are Burdett Thayer, of Spring Valley; A. T. Sterns, of Rochester; G. W. Rockwell, of Rushford; P. C. Bailey, of Waseca, : and J. S. Little ton, of Kasson. "-; Sentiment seems to be divided as to the propriety of indorsing Davis, who is quite a popular candidate. The con vention will have to decide that on the floor. In the Second district there is to be a lively fight. L. P. Hunt, of Man kato, and E. C. Huntington, of Win dom, want to be delegate at large, and John Lind wants to go to the St. Louis convention in some capacity, so that he may exploit his free silver principles on the , floor of the big con vention. Whether : he will make his play for the place at large or for one of the district places is not as yet apparent, but, in , any event, a lively contest is assured. , Other candidates are W. R. Edwards, of Tracy; A. H. Fowler, of Slay ton; E. C. Dean, of Pipestone; Dr. W. Rowe, of St. James; Charles Wilcox, of Marshall. -- Edwards has captured the Lyon ; county delegates, which gives him a strong backing. McKin ley men will be. sent to the 'conven tion," undoubtedly, but' without any spirit of hostility to Davis. HUBBARD FOR j DELEGATE. The indications are that ex-Gov. L. F. Hubbard, Red Wing, and Charles Stro beck, of LUchfleld. will represent the Third district at St.* Louis. Donald Grant, of Faribault;, and T. M. Payne, of Glencoe, also j are candidates. At large the following are favored. George Thompson, St. Paul; R. G. Evans, Min neapolis; O. H. Burke, Duluth; J.. A. Tawney, "Winona. The Third district delegates will probably be first for Davis and second" for McKinley, al though it is doubtful if they will be in structed. ~ Fred Gnebe, of Dakota j county, will probably be one of the alternates, and E. B. Benson, of Litchfield, may enter the race for' delegdteship. The Sixth district convention will be held at Aitkin.*". Four Davis men are the. candidates for; district delegate, Monroe. Nichols, :v of Duluth; A. D. Davidson, of Little Falls; C. F. Hen dryx, of Sauk Center, and F. A. Hodge, of Pine City; The people, however, are supposed to be for 'McKinley, although the delegates may Mot" be bound. Hen dryx's second, choice is said to be Thomas Bracket*' Reed. The Seventh district convention at Crookston. Is likely to choose an In structed McKinley delegation, although E. E. Corliss, Elmer E. Adams and other Fergus Falls leaders are fight ing for an .unhampered delegation. The leading candidates for delegate are C. J. Gunderson*? of Alexandria; John H. Smith, of Detroit, and E. T. Young, of Appleton. ■ .j»i* If any one , doubted the sentiment of the Minneapolis Republicans in the matter of preference of presidential candidates, that fioubt must have been dispelled by the f primaries held last evening.

As soon as this is over the district convention will begin. Tl*|e same dele gates attend both, and they will be practically one. C. A. Pillsbury will probably be chosen district delegate without opposition, but R. G. Evans will have to fight if he is to be dele gate at large. At the Union league rooms last night it was freely, and not only that, but emphatically, pre dicted that . Evans would not be chosen unless he came out flat-footed for McKinley. Even in the Eighth ward, Mr. Evans' own home, it is claimed that he will not secure a delegate from the First, Third, Fifth or Eighth districts. The Second ward is said to be solid for Evans, but the " Seventh ward is understood to be anti-Evans; the' Eleventh ward shows an inclina tion that way, and the Tenth ward delegates say that they will never vote for Evans unless he comes out for. McKinley. - - "*..■ ..'-' ♦.:*.--*■-.."-*••-*''•: •-■-^ ■:.'':"." ?>*■ Representative Henry Felg, of Kan diyohi county, was in St. Paul yester day. He was around with the politi cians not a little, and will go home in time to participate in the primaries which will be held there tonight. "We will not instruct for McKinley," he said. "We are for Davis, but Mc- Kinley is our second choice. I know that there is a McKinley boom on here, but it is a great mistake. The conven tions should, not instruct for any one. The thing that I object to most is talk ing Davis all the year and then throw ing him down. * * * Chairman Tarns Bixby, of the Repub lican state central committee, was in Minneapolis yesterday for. the purpose of looking the Exposition hall over and completing arrangements for the state convention to be held there Tuesday. The- inspection was made in the com pany, of John Goodnow and several other Minneapolis Republicans. It is proposed to have a brass band in the hall for the first two hours of the con vention, after which it is expected that the bill will be musical enough without any. * /• ■'• Samuel Hill, who returned yester day from the East, says senators whom he met felt that there would be no disturbance with either Spain or England, and that the Impression seemed to prevail that the Venezuelan matter and Cuban matter would be arranged without serious trouble. He found a strong feeling that a square Issue should be made for sound money, and that the attitude of the Wiscon sin convention had met with great favor among business men whom he had met in Chicago. Some of the more conservative men in the East thought that the McKinley managers were a little too active and aggresive, and that the effect would be to solidify the feeling against McKinley; that there were many kind words said in New- York in favor of Davis and Allison, but the preference of the Eastern states seemed to be for Reed and Mor ton. Mr. Hill hoped that a delega tion would be sent to the national con- j vention from Minnesota entirely unin- j structed, " as an instructed - delegation j was not much of a factor; that it was \ more important to pick out good, j strong men than it was to send a dele- j gation with hands tied. Referring to the business conditions, he said that there would be no more money sent out into the Northwest until the people who sent the money j felt that they would get back the same ! kind of money that they sent— both j principal and interest. President Cleveland made a remark in Wash- j ington which strongly illusarates the '■ case when he said that a farmer who | loaned seed* wheat In the spring ex- ! pected to get back seed wheat in the ; fall, and was not i satisfied with a | note which was, at the option of the maker, payable In oats or barley, and i that a man who loaned gold. did not j care to be repaid in coin of less volue. • • * D. W. Bruckart's candidacy" for presi dent of the state league of Republican clubs is developing some curious out- j bursts of enthusiasm in the other dis tricts. Every day there come reports of the organization of new Republican clubs, all of which send delegates to the convention. For it is written, in the i Republican league apochrypha, that | when two or three, or at most five, i are gathered together, they may as- i semble themselves as a league club and ! send themselves as delegates to the : state convention. These new clubs are likely to prove the downfall of Mr. Bruckart unless the Sixth district rush es to the rescue of its favorite candi date and organizes a "host 'of diminu tive clubs to counteract these insidious Influences before Wednesday's conven tion.

ONE TICKET IN THE FIELD WITH AX OCCASIONAL CONTEST SPRING BY SOME A9PIMIXC* GENTLEMAN. TUB NINTH HAD A DOI HLE SHAKEfc E. C. <ai.i„l,ell Turned DoWn I.- f% Ticket Headed by Col. Jsaaepfc ,• Bobleter. A very light ballot and a marked preponderance of McKinley sentiment were the chief characteristics of last night's Republican primaries in St Paul. In .nearly, all the wards the thing was cut and dried. Only one ticket was in the field, and there was little enthusiasm manifested, in one precinct, in fact, the return made to the chairman of the committee last night showed that there was just one man present at the primary. This was in the Tenth ward, and he elected him self chairman, secretary and delegate, made his own return to the chairman' and will probably be round Monday to secure tickets to' the meeting of the state .league of Republican clubs. There were exceptions to this apathy however. The Ninth ward, with Its usual asperities, gave two lively con-, tests, one of them • close as well as bitter. In the first precinct of this ward there were two tickets in the field, one headed by E. C. Campbell, i who wants to be assistant county at j torney, and one headed by ex-State i Treasurer Joseph Bobleter. The Bob j leter ticket received 38 votes, to 30 for Campbell's list. The fight was purely , on personal lines. The Seventh precinct of the same ward had a straight Davis ticket and an opposition which was, of course, straight -McKinley. The Davis ticket received 22 votes to 9 for the McKinley folk. Reed was scarcely heard of in the | canvass anywhere, although in a very , few isolated cases ballots were found in which the names of both McKinley ; and Davis had been scratched and the czar's cognomen substituted. The Fifth ward objected to the form j of ballot printed by the general com j mittee, and substituted one in which j McKinley's name preceded Davis'. it would have made no difference, how ever, as the favorite son was not in it at any stage. ■The full list of the delegates elected, 1 j so far as can be made up from the | returns to the chairman and the I Globe's investigation, is as follows; Precinct.
