Kentucky occupies the somewhat an omalous position of being in favor of a radical tariff reform plank in the plat form but disposed to oppose the re nomination of ex-President Cleveland on the grounds of inexpediency.

Monroe, secretary of the Cleveland or- William C Whitney of" New York in a j ganfaatfon in New York, is authority very emphatic manner, as he emerged from a conferense of the Cleveland managers, which had lasted from 9 o'clock last night until the early hours of this morning in Mr. Whit ney's private parlor at the Hotel Richelieu. The gathering was by long odds tho most important held since the political hosts began to center in Chicago. It was called for the express purpose of looking over the entire Cleveland line of battle, and of detecting any weak points if they existed. Foremost among the conferees were .Messrs. Whitney and Dickinson of Michigan. Word was soon passed among the Cleveland leaders calling them to as semble at the Richelieu, and as a re sult the parlors were taxed to their ut most. It was no ordinary gathering of 'Cleveland enthusiasts for casual com ment on the situation. Governor Itus 6cll of Massachusetts was there and ex-Assistant l'ostmaster Gener al Stevenson, the probable temporary chairman of the-convention. Mayor Winston of Minneapolis and Patrick Doran, one of the Minnesota leaders, represented that state. The Southern states were wcll-represcnted. conspicuous among the Southern men being Hope Smith of Atlanta. Ha., Messre. Smalley of Vermont, Shepard oMJrooklyn, Morris of Indianapolis and D. Cady nerrick were also present. What was done in the hours of earn est conference is lest told in the first quoted statement of ex-Secretary AVhitney: "Mr. Cleveland will be nominated on the first ballot. The strength of Mr. Cleveland," contiuued Mr. Whitney, "in every section of the country was examined with minute de tail. I have thought from, the first Mr. Cleveland had .a majority and would be nominated, but it was not until I heard these reports from conservative and thoroughly posted lecders from all over the country that I became abso lutely confident that Mr. Cleveland would be nominated on the first bal lot" "Is this feeling of confidence based -on-figures?" "Certainly it is, but we have no figures to offer for publication as j'et In a word, however, they show that there will be only one ballot, and that will nominate Mr. Cleveland." Two stout porters carried a big box up to the Cleveland headquarters in -the Grand Pacific this saionning and -deposited their burden in a corner. It was closely guarded by IS. Ellery Anderson, "one of the leaders of the "anti-snappers," who said: "That box contains protests against Hill and the snap convention and ithern nri for the statement that the anti-snap pers will demand recognition from the convention.

The Iowa dele gation met at the Palmer house this morning and elected J. J. Richardson again to be national committeeman for that state. At noon the Iowa dele gation were rejoicing over the receipt or assurances that Colorado would cast a solid vote for Ifoies and they claim further pledges of support from other states, but do not give the names. Their confidence is based oa a belief that there will be no choice on the first ballot and promises of sup port after the first. Idaho fur Gorman. Kansas Citv, Mo., June IS. The Utah and Idaho delegation to the Chi cago convention passed through this city to-day. They were accompanied by about 120 prominent Democrats, who go as sightseers.

Estimates are being made with great diligence and the utmost possible care by the .leaders of all the various candidates where they fail to show any material dif ference from those already published. The indications are that Hill will go into the convention with between 200 and 2S0 bal lots and as Boies and Gray will prob ably each receive the support of their respective states, with a possibility of Carlisle having the twenty-six votes of Kentucky on the first ballot, Cleve land may fall samewhat short of the requisite two-thirds on the first ballot This declaration is being asserted with considerable vigor by the anti-Cleveland people to day and they defiantly ask the friends of the ex-president to produce figures to con trovert their estimates. At the Cleveland headquarters this Hiorning plans were set on foot to se cure a poll of all the delegations with a view to disproving the assertion that the ex-president could not be nomi nated on the first ballot. The anti Cleveland people are supplementing this assertion with the second one, and that, too, with great assurance, that Ex-Secretary Illatue Leaves Possible for Chicago. Bar Harbor, Me., June 19. The news of Emmons Itlaine's death reached ex-Secretary Blaine at the Stanwood a little after noon. The family is greatly prostrated by grief. Mr. Blaine left for Chicago on the 3 o'clock train this afternoon. Xews of the illness of his son came too late for his departure by the 11 o'clock train tins morning. Deep Sympathy for Mr. ltlalnc.

Young Mr. Blaine was a notable figure in the exciting convention scenes at Minneapolis that resulted in his father's defeat. He took the result greatly to heart, ami was confined to his room shortly after his return from the North. During the convention he seemed in perfect health and no one who heard of his sud den passing away was more shocked than those who saw him par ticipating in caucuses early and late, night and day, in his father's interest. It is thought possible by many that the strain aud excitement aU Minne apolis, followed by the keen" disap pointment of the outcome, had not a little to do with the physical prostra tion ensuing. Kuiiuons llljlnc's Career. Emmons was the second son of James G. Blaine. He was about 37 years old and a native of Maine. In appearance he closely resembled his father, but there was lacking in his personality that magnetism which has made his parent so famous. He had the Blaine nose and eves and his hair had been gray for more than ten years. Young Mr. Blaine graduated from Harvard college as a member of the class of '?S. Soon after leaving col lege he went to Burlington. Ia., where he assumed a position on the Burling ton road. In lfss he was called to Chi cago and promoted to a position of im portance. It was while he was in Chicago that Emmons had a serious disagreement with his father and it was not until the latter's nomination in l;sl that the two were reconciled. During the intervening years they never spoke Later Emmons became general agent Of ih- nta Fp n 1 va at. nn fitno talked of as assistant general manager. Three or four years ago he went to Baltimore to look after his father's coal and railroad interests in West Virginia and became general man ager of the West Virginia Central road. oi wnicn ex-senator Camden is presi- ueni. Three years ago he married MissMc Cormick, the heiress and daughter of the great reaper and harvester builder. at intcngo. Emmons Blaine at the time of his death was vice president of the Balti more and Ohio railroad and had until quite recently resided at Baltimore, coming to Chicago to take charge of uie t cstern interests oj the company. A orrly AfUictetl Family. The news of the death of Emmons came with peculiar sadness following so closely upon the political defeat of James G. Blaine. Fate seems to have marked his family and in recent years his troubles have scarcely come singly. In the fall of JSS'J Walker Blaine, his eldest son, suffered a broken leg and a serious ill ness .from malarial fever. When but partially recovered from the latter he resumed his duties as examiner of claims in the department of state. One cold day he stood bare-headed in tho open air, while a strong breeze was blowing, to converse with departing friends. He took cold, la grippe fol lowed and January 10 he died verv suddenly. The father was prostrated by the news, as Walker had always been his favorite son. May 17 of the same year Miss Margaret was married to Walter Dainrosch. Later James G. Blaina became ill and for months his death would not have been received as startling news. His stay at iar naroor, .tic. last summer and fall Is yet remembered. The country was daily flooded with contradictory and conflicting reports as to his condition. His every move was chronicled. On his recovery he resumed his duties as secretary of stato and then began the move among cer tain political forces to nominate him for president. The move terminated last week in defeat. Another sonrce of irreat trouble to James G. Blaine in recent years has been the erratic actions of .lames G., jr., and his marriage to Miss Marie Kevins. The entire story of domestic troubles and divorce has been re riewed within the last few months in nearly every newspaper in the land. Four Men Killed In a Wreck. Gaixsburg, I1L, Jane 13.

Wichita, Kan., June IS, Dispatches were received here yesterday afternoon from Democrats all over the state, in quiring particularly into the past po litical affiliations of the men nominated by the People's party. More interest seemed to be taken in John T. Little of Johnson county, the nominee for attorney general, than any other candidate. The Demo cratic politicians are afraid that Little is a Prohibitionist, and if that proves to be the case the First and Seventh districts will not indorse him if the Democratic leaders can prevent it- If the Democratic convention does not indorse the People's party ticket the chances arc that the rank and file will support it apyhow, leaving the Democratic ticket with the smallest vote it has ever polled in the state.
