In 1876 the central committee nimedbimfor governor during his absence from the state, Godiove Orth the nominee of the convention, having withdrawn. The outlook was a most unfavorable onet but Gen. Harrison accepted the responsibility and made a vigorous campaign. That was the year of Tilden and Hendricks, and of course Harrison was beati-n. This campaigu greatly extended his ac quaintmce and reputation among the people, and he was now recognized as a leader. In the convention of 18S0 his name was mentioned ior President, but without especial prominence. In the same year he was elected to the Uni ted States senate, where he served two terms with no especial distinction. He is a fairly efiective speaker, but not an orator, ibe only eenius which bis friends claim for him is the genius of application, of mastering things. His history from the time ot his nomination in 1888 until now is well known. Small I'oz Alarm l'UUburicers.

Ablest Republican and Most Astute rolltlclan In the United .States. The Globe-Democrat, on Whlfelan Beld The Feeling; In Kansas Other Late I'olltlcat Nciri of Interest. i -. Londo.v, June 11. The burden of comment of all the evening papers on the renomi nation of the president and the selection of Whitelaw Reid as the candidate for vice president is joy over the defeat of Mr. Blaine. The Pall Mall Gazette says: "Even those least in sympathy with Mr. Blaise as politicians may spare a pass ing regret at the cruel disappointment of the man who is the ablest Republi can and most astute politician in the United States. The Globe says: "For once the Ameri can caucus was of real interest to out siders, especially in England. In view of the dissension in the Democatic party the nominee of yesterday stands a good chance of being the next presi dent. It was a happy thing that the caucus decided overwhelmingly against the great wire puller whose entire career has been marred with attempts to make party capital out of" foreign politick." The Star publishes a most violent attack on Mr. IShtine because of his protection principles, and sums up its estimate of President Harrison's qualifi cations by declaring that he is "a quiet, unassuming old gentleman of great personal integrity, but without irreat ability." It then predicts the nomina tion of Mr. Cleveland by the Democrats and concludes by saying: "The sym pathies of all Free Traders and Liber als should lx with hi I nrm r:,., ri..i.i 1 aocio .to absurdity in the Itehring sea negotiations until it was found to be ln va,n when he dropped itand climbed down- much for American court- A vieumi in Kansas. TorEKA, Kan.. June It. When liar risons nomination was announced yes terday afternoon, not a cheer went up from crowds about the bulletin boards the most part Blaine enthusiasts I and it qnictlydispcrsed when a bulle i tin announced enough votes on the first ballot to re nominate the president. It is again reported that J. J. Ingalls Vho led the Kansas delegation for the appointmcnt. president is to be honored with a foreign There will be 200,000 votes cast in Kansas this year. A conservative estimate gives the Republicans lJ. 000, the People's party 113,000 and the Democrats 50,000. The opposition majority is 27,000 and the enthusiasm so far as the national ticket is concerned is all with the anti administration forces. The Republican leaders accept the result and are try ing to make the best of it. James Smith, private secretary to the governor, said: "Harrison carried Kansas four years ago by a plurality of 80,000. I don't believe there are 40,000 voters in this state who sup- forted him then who will vote against im now." William Higgins, secretary of state, said: "1 believed that Blaine's nomin ation was the best thing for the Re- Enblican party in Kansas. He would ave added 10,000 votes to the state ticket and would have made success assured." m.a Bright 0 J'Voak The "Globe-Democrat" ou Held. St. Louis-June tl. Of the vice-Presidential nomination by the Republican national convention the Ulobe-Uemo-crat said this morning: "The nomination of Whitelaw Reid for vice president is a blunder of a pe culiarly serious and senseless kincL It is a concession to the Maine faction, of the party which ought not to have been made under any circumstances. The antagonism of the laborclcment to Mr. Reid is pronounced and bitter, and ought to have been taken into consid eration by the delegates. There are many Itlaine men who would hare been unobjectionable from any point of view. Some of them would have strengthened the ticket very materi ally. Mr. Reid decidedly and emphat ically weakens the ticket." At Harrison's Old Home. IxoiAXArous, InL, June 11. From- .1 . : . l l . r neapolis until the news of Harrison's renomination was received great crowds were to be seen about a dozen, different places where bulletins were displayed. The interest was Intense, but not as responsive as it was four years ago when votes in favor of Harrison were shown. A great deal of anxiety was felt until the vote of Texas was announced, and then, after considerable cheering the crowds disncrsed. Amonir the tier sonal friends of Mr. Damson there was a great deal of congratulation. Rapid Service of the Associated Presa. Minneapolis, June' 1 1. The Assoc!- ated press made a commendable record during the convention just closed, and its bulletin service has probably never been excelled. The bulletin announc ing the nomination was received and posted at all telegraph points in America within live minutes, at most of them within two minutes. The Pa cific coast knew the result within two minutes after it had been determined. New York within sixty seconds, and. London in one minute and a half. A snnrouatre Will Contested.
