Franklin MacVcagh was nominated on the first ballot for senator. Cable la tUe l'rellmlnarle. S'rutXGFIia.n, UK, June '-T. It Is about a certain as anything in politics enn be than MncVcnuh will bu uomluatud fur senator by the Democratic state conven tion today. Deu Cahle, who hits led the opposition, and stoutly opoomnl the nom ination of anybody mid that of Mac- Veacli in particulnr hits practically iliveti up the fluht mid will throw his struimth to MncVratfli. Cable coiitrol.s.prnct icnlly. all the drlcKiiUous from the Rout hern purt of the stale and these with Cook comity's hilt deleantlon votin t it Mhj vsi&i un der the unit rule will Imi enough to secure him the necessary majority. Cable U not expected to derlare himself openly, sod personally ileclarc that he does Hut know what he will do. It Is nUo ab-iut certain that Henry Iliiub will ae- cpt the nntuina;ion for superintendent of public Instruction. -No minio is mca- tioned for state treasurer, snve that of Peter Kiolbassa, of Chicapo, and nobody seems to know anything about him or Lis wishes lu the matter. When asked if hn had any doubts as to whether any nomination would be made Hopkins hesitated a moment and then re plied with much emphasis: "MncVeaith will be nominated fur senator. 1 ray that without any qualification whatever. There will be a nomination and MacVeagb will get It. I sues that Is speciflc enouiAi." The Cook County Marching club, of Chi cago, 150 utroii k, has arrived. After a short parade through the streets, headed ly the I'ullman band, the club halted in front of the Ielund hotel where cheers were given fur Mnyor Hopkins, of Chlcngo. The mayor then placed himself at the head of the column, which marched to the exueu I five mansion and serenaded Governor Alt- geld, who bowed and thanked the club fur i the honor, but made no attempt to deliver t a speech. It is almost Impossible to give any accu rate forecast of the platform, but it is ri a- sonably certain that It will avoid a com mittal on the silver question., aud give a nnxliuVd inilonteinuiii of the national ad nitaiatration. Iteyoud these two things I ntliing appears to be set tied. Frankliu MaeVeagh, who came to the city with the Cook County Marching club, is sanguine of his success. General lllack is no less confident of suc cess than before the union of Cable and the MaeVeagh interests. He declares that Cable cannot swing euougb strength to elect MaeVeagh and relies strongly on the Morrison element refusing to as sist the CbicOL'o man. lien 'Cable at iO o'clock Inst night an nounced that be was out for McVeagh, and would make every effort to nominate him. This in the miuds of the Cook coun ty men assures the nomination of tho Chi cago man. His opponents, however, deny this with emphasis. A strong effort is le Ing made to consolidate ou Hunter or Itlark against McVeagh.' Ill Tle-op la Chicago. Chicago, 111., Jane 27 All tho employes in the yards of all roads running into the (irand Central de pot, Baltimore & Ohio, Northern Pa cific, Wisconsin Central, Chicago & Northern Pacific ahd Chicago tireat Western, struck at noon. This strike includes engineers, -firemen, tower men, switchmen and bridgemen. The superintendent of depot and the stationmaslcr are running on a switch engine, but otherwise traflic is completely tied up. A thousand men employed in the ear shops of the Illinois Central, at Hurnside, and 250 men employed in the shops of the same company, at Wcldon. struck this afternoon, through sym pathy with the Pullman strikers. Only a small minority of these men arc known to be members of the American Railway Union. The Strike Growing. Chicago. June 27. Tho strikes growing out of the Pullman boycott arc spreading rapidly to every road nut of Chicago which handles Pull man cars. According to the reports received at Union headquarters this morning the Illinois Cetitral yards aud terminals arc completely tied up from tin? Randolph street yards to Pullman, III. The distance is 12 miles. The main objection whv the Illinois Central strike was ordered yesterday was to tie up the four hun dred Pullman cars in the yards at Pullman, and this morning it was successful. All Heem In It. Chicago, June 27. The switch men, trackmen and car repairers em ployed by the Wisconsin Central, struck today, and as far as the yards in this city. arc concerned, the road is now tied up.

FRANCE A BIG RIOT. Even the Makers of Law Losing Their Heads. ROW AT A FOLITTCAL MEETHTG Resulting In a Turbulent Adjournment and a Challenge tu Fight Grenoble Complicates Matters by an As- aault on the Italian Consulate The Furniture, Ornaments and National In signia Smashed Mme. Carnot aud Uer Dead Arrive In Paris. Paws, June 87. Tha assassination of Carnot may show that the French repub lic is based solidly, but if it docs it will be a close shave. The crime was essentially French, although committed by an Ital ian. He was an anarchist, and did the deed to "avenge" a French anarchist Vaillant whom Carnot had refused to save from the guillotine. Anarchists do not draw national lines. In their society all is "brotherhood." Yet from many places in France the news cames of out rage on law-aViding and innocent Ital ians been usb they are Italians, and the land is in a ferment of riot. Lawmakers Lowe Their Ilead. This, however, might mean war, but not necessarily the fall of the republic. Bnt when the deputies and senators lose their heads nt a time like the present, there Is need of a very steady band somewhere. At a plenary meeting of the Republican deputies and senators last evening, which wns called to decided upon a candidate for the prcsideucy.the members of the two chnmbers were unable to agree and the mpcting culminated in an uproar, during which Deputies Berteaux nndSauset came to blows. The result of the encounter is thnt both gentlemen have appointed sec onds and a duel will shortly I fought. This is a beginning. What will bp the end? An Italian Consulate Violated. What the mob is working for is a foreign war. A most uncalled for outrage on the Italian consulate Is reported from Greno ble. Tho hatred of Italy has a deeper root thnn that which springs from Santo the assassin. Italy is nn ally of Germnny. At Grenoble rioting has been goinc on ever since the news of the assassination, nnd the police have been powerless, and Italian life nnd property not worth a pur chase. At last the mob rushed to the Italian consulate nnd broke into the build ing through the windows. The Military a Little Tardy. Several rioters headed by a drunken carpenter entered the consulate, tore up the Italian flag, smashed tho escutcheon, broke the furniture, threw tho statuettes upon the floor and kicked them tn pieces and springing upon tw o large oil paintings representing King Humbert nnd Queen Mnrgnret of Italy they threw them into the street. A detachment of military en gineers was summoned und the soldiers charged upon the mob. After tho rioters were driven out of the consulate, which wns then occupied by the t roups, the pre fect made an apology to the Italian con sul. The riotous crowds spread through out the city, seized uiion all the Italians. men, women and children, nnd took them to the prefecture, believing that they were to be expelled from tho ciiy.
