OMAHA, Neb., March 20.— After an

day, an agreement has been reached
between the Manderson and McKinley
forces of Nebraska by which the sup
porters of Gen. Manderson agree to
withdraw all opposition to the selection

name of Gen. Manderson to the conven

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

McKinley will be nominated for president.
As a result of the agreement, the
Manderson men are to make no fur

Louis is to be composed of avowed
McKinley men. The Manderson head

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
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
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

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;

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

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
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.
