Cable U not expected to derlare himself
openly, sod personally ileclarc that he

ab-iut certain that Henry Iliiub will ae-

tioned for state treasurer, snve that of
Peter Kiolbassa, of Chicapo, and nobody
seems to know anything about him or Lis

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.

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

the MaeVeagh interests. He declares
that Cable cannot swing euougb strength
to elect MaeVeagh and relies strongly on

this with emphasis. A strong effort is le

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

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

Several rioters headed by a drunken
carpenter entered the consulate, tore up
the Italian flag, smashed tho escutcheon,

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
