CHICAGO, June 16.—This city was to day the center of the Western rush for the Philadelphia convention. Three large organizations identified with the Republican party in Cook county started for the Quaker City today, to say noth ing of a flood of delegates and politicians from the Western states who, all a-flut ter with flags and badges, paused long enough to transfer themselves to rail roads running East. The Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska and upper Michigan delegates, with their friends, will leave here tomorrow over the Baltimore & Ohio. Nearly all expect to reach Philadelphia Monday.

TOWN AND COUNTRY LINKS WEIIE TIIE SCENE OF SOME FIVE GO'.K YESTERDAY. Yesterday was another busy day among the golfers, and, although the events on the local links were not of any particular importance, the general average of the playing was of a high order. On tiie Town and Country course the mixed four some competition wa.s won by U. F. Schurnieitr and C. W. Gardner, who turned in a score of 91 for the round. The team match at Bryn Mawr, Minneapolis, was declared off, as the number of play ers who entered was not sufficient lo make the match an interes.ing one. The weather was ideal for golf, as there was enough wind moving to make playing a pleasure and not enough to interfere with the game. Fourteen couples entered in the men's foursome competition on the Town and Country links. The greens were in ex cellent .condition, and the playing, while not exceptional, was good. As usual, the champion of the club. B. F. Schurmeier, was in the winning pair, while W. P. Trowbridge and W. L. Mitchell were the runners up. The course has recently been piped, and it v.as a trifle slow to the players in conseauence. The result is as follows: B. F. Schurmeier and C. W. Gardner, 4, SI; W. P. Trowbridge and W. D. Mitchell. 7, 92; A. McQuillan and F. H. Sabin, 10. 93; R G. Halbert and M. Do ran Jr., 3, 94; N. P. Langford Jr. and H. P. Bend, 5. S5; R. B. De Lano and E. N. Saunders. 16. 105; 1.. A.

Pone tied for the first place in the women's contest, each of them makinar the round in 63. The play was golf No. 5 over three roun.-ls of six'holes each. The following are the re sults: Miss A.

The contest for the W. H. Lißhtner cup has narrowed down to two players, B. F. Schurmeier sad E. G. Ha'.bert. Th° finals will be• 'decided during the coming week. After the aualifying round was played, and the rcatfih p:ay commenced, the results wer«i. as follows: Hal bert won frf>m Doran by 3 up: T. L.

A Cnrions Organization in London Where Gems i liauge Hands. London Express. This is an age for clubs. Each profes sion, almost each calling-, has its own particular club where members can meet one another or their friends, dine, read the newspapers, transact business or play games of some sort. The majority of the clubs are well known, if only by name, but very few have even heard of the Diamond Merchants' club, in Hatton p.-mien. The name speaks for itself. It is called the Diamond clvb —fir, to give It iis full name, the Diamond Merchants and Jew elers" club, I..imiled—and the chief re quisite for membership is that the new comer should be concerned with or in the diamond trade. Hatton garden is a busy thoroughfare, and seems to reek of diamonds, so to speak. The principal room of the Diamond club has a half slass roof which lets in a glare of lighr on the transaction which take place, .'n this room may be seen more millionaires at one time than in any other spot in the world. Another room is cunningly dark ened so as to give relief to tired eyes. One member may be reading a news paper, when another comes over and tells him h<- wants a few diamonds, explaining the kind, etc. The first man vili imme diately give him two or three little paper packets to inspect, naming the price, and tha se-cond man will take them over to the window, while the first will calmly con tinue reading his paper. - The first man is probably a broker, who has obtained the diamonds from a mer chant, and he has a certain price from which he cannot abate. If the purchaser considers the price fair and the econes good he will suggest that they go into one of the little partitions or cubicles whioh are set apart for this purpose. These little divisions face the light.—for it is absolutely necessary to have a bright light, very liitle business being done on a dull day—are fitted up with a shelf and a pair of scales, and when the small boU is slipped on the door the buyer and sell er are fre.c from any interruption. The scales are in a glass case, for th« others from a kind of tinsel, so light that slightest bit of dust would affect the delicate mechanism, a single hair making a d fference in the working of this won derful little contrivance. The largest weights are made of metal, but the a breath will blow them away. Some idea may bs gathered of th:ir minute ness whin one realizes that the smallest one only weighed the sixty-fourth part of a carat! For the purpose of show- Ing up the beauties of the stones they are laid on different colored papers— blue for pearls, b'.ack for opals, etc. The club was originally started by two men who had at last realized that it wa.s not safe to hold these bu-lness con ferences in a public house, which had Hitherto been the custom. It was such a success that the members soon bought out the proprietors and turned it into a limited liability company. It has pro gressed so rapidly that is has quite re cen'ly moved into new premises, which the '-lent of the club. H. Bernhardt, was 'rteous in showl: g me over. Mr. Bcrnirjrdt is the diamond merchant from whom most of our great actors and actresses buy their diamonds, and it speaks well for h'm that when they have once been to him they never go any where else. Many of the members of the Diamond Merchants' club are foreigners, although maiiy Englishmen are among the num ber. Dominos and < ards are provided, but no game of cards In allowed before 4 o'clock, and then only solo wh'st may be played, the slightest tendency to gam ble being strictly prohibited. This is. perhaps, the only club that opens and shuts early, for very few others open at 10 o'clock In the morn ing and close at 7 at night. Perhaps the members consider it wiser to de posit their wares In some safer place than a pocket before n'ghtfali; whatever the reason, the lights are out, the doors shut and everything Is quiet when other men's clubs are just beginning to be alive. BIG EET ON BRYAN. James R. Ke«»n«>, the Wall Street Hear, HI alt en It. New York Cor. in St. Louis Republic. Perhaps the inns' striking figure to take th€ Democratic-Bryan end of the argument in an aggressive :<n<l militant way Is James R. Keene, the czar of Wall street, the unchallenged king of speculation. Mr. Keene was for McKin ley in 1896; gave $40,000 toward hi.-; cam paign. Today he is for Bryan, and had a long Interview with the Nebraskan o:i the occasion of a recent visit. New York is shallow and there 1? no voice to b" so potent with New York as the jingling voice of money. Therefore, the story to follow murV a deal of uneasy st'r among McKinley i'.ilks. ll was ju:-t prior to Mr. Kerne s recenl Bail for England. He and a party of gentlemen were ;it dinner in Delmoni ce's. One of them—an aanerent of Mc- Kinley, and somewhat oversteeped in that form of Eastern Ignorance that makes no account of any West or South—was vo ciferously confident of coming Republi can success. This sage closed his Repub. lican declamation w.th a mad desire to bet. He was eager for a wager. Mr. Keene bent on him his steel-gray eye, that eye which for twenty years has looked further and more profitably into Wall street futures than any other, and asked: "What odds do you want to offer on McKinley? I infer from your exhuber ance that you've something more start ling to propose than even money?" "Call it two to one In thousands," ex claimed the McKinley adherent. "Contrary to the belief of many," re torted Mr. Keene, "I seldom make a bet. But I'll depart from my rule on th;s oc casion, and wager a trifle with you. Moreover, I won't take the odds you prof fer—they're* unfair. I'll do better by you. I'll wager you $7,500 against $10,000 that Bryan defeats McKinley." The McKinley champion hesitated. Ora tory was one thing; a cold proposal to jeopardize $10,000 on his Republican hopes and fears was another. Again his oppo nent's well known . genius to foresee events, a genius which makes him the magician of the course, daunted him. Taking two other gentlemen in as equal partners he accepted Mr. Keene's offer, and $10,000 against $7,500 that McKinley defeats Bryan was wagered. This trans action has not done a lUtle to wet-blan ket those forward anticipations of local Republicans that their party is to have a walkover. Mr. Keene has never, within their experience, failed to have reasons for any faith within him, and his prompt wager puzzles while it dismays them. "The people of this country," said Mr. Keene, In a recent conversation, "must arouse themselves. The coming election Is of more importance from the stand point of pure and true Americanism than any that has transpired since the election of Lincoln. Money is in the saddle; it is riding down the institutions of this coun try with a confident insolence that tells of the firm belief of its own invincibility. It is running the government today in its every branch and arm. If moneys power in molding public affairs goes forward for four years more as it has for the four year? past the name of American liberty will only be worth a recollection as a matter of history. Money is pressing the people backward step by step. What la the end to be? If it goes on there are, as matters stand, but two solutions. One is socialism and the other Is evolution. The American people must defend themselves against money just as they once did in the forests from the savages. Unless they oome solidly, shoulder to shoulder, for their rights, and come at once. Bunker Hill •will have been a blunder; Yorktown a mistake." EACE GOEES IN A WEECK. Six Killed nn«l Four Injured at I.uukU, EnKlaml.
