Head of the Republican National Commit tee Criticised by a Harrison Man. Inihanaimii.is, Jnne 10. Recently Chairman Carter, of tho Republican no tional committee, declared for free silver, nuil Don Cameron. The Journal, which mlvocntus tho nomination of tiuneral Harrison fur president, criticises Carter' statement as not in good taste, to say the li-oHt, considering his position. The Journal challenges Carter's right as head of the national committee to express a preference in advance of the action of the convention, silence on such subjects on the part of a man in his position being, tho Journal claims, part of tho unwritten law of ptllittc. Tho Journal further says: "Tho views which Colonel Carter now expresses on tho silver question, und which aro held by Senator Cameron, whose nomination he favors, are not tho views expressed by tho Minneapolis convention. If it had been supposed that Colonel Carter was out of lino with tho Republican platform on tho sliver question, or that there was nny probability of his getting out of line, ho would not have been elected chairman of tho committee. The platform adopted by tho lait national convention is the platform of the, party, and if tho chair man of tho national committee wants to repudiate it ho should lirst resign bis po sition." The lending Republicans, all of whom are Qirmls of tho cx-president, say that the editorial in The Journal is tho out como of a conference of Harrison's friends, in whieti it was decided that it was no longer expedient for tho question of his candidacy to remain in doubt, and that the best w.ty toemphnsizj Harrison's position was to nntiuudvort on tho chair man of tho nutionnl c.immittee. who was making himself obnoxious to Harrison's f rionds. . bHALLEV liKFLIKS TO Till KMA.N.
