Features of the Fight.
Minneapolis, June i. A canvas of the
hotels and locations allotted for head
quarters shows that not more than ten per
csnt. of the accredited delegates to the
convention were on the grounds yesterday
morning. The bulk of the actual nominee
tinkers will not be in until tomorrow.
The bulk of the talking is being done and
the most of the noise being made now
by individuals enthusiastic enough in
their adherence to their respective favor

in the actual proceedings when the roll of
states is called for the selection of candi

They Have Their Little Lists. I
Both sides are anxious for a preliminary
count or noses. Jlr. Sew bus a list of
over 500 delegates, all of whom, he claims,
are instructed and pledged for Harrison,
while he has a supplementary list of forty
or so more that while uninstructed can,
in his judgment, be reckoned as part of
the president's forces. But Clarkson, who
has a little list of his own in an inside
pocket, puts the Harrison strength
as to a man. i Sloat Fassett has
counted up an even 3 )0 as the outside
strength of Harrison on the first ballot.
As to Blaine's strength they are wary in
making predictions. Quay came in
shortly before noon on a special car with
Senators Stockbridire, Sawyer, Felton,
Gallinger, and Kepreeutaiivc Burrows as
Blaine to Make a Sijjn.
Stockbridce and Sawyer are Harrison
men as between the latter and Blaine,
while Felton and Gallinger were for the
time being non-committal. Burrows said '

"You didn't get your man appointed post

Alleged New from Washington
A decided Blaine twist was given to the
notei gossip last evening by the dissemi
nation of the stattment from Washington
that Secretary Blaine had authorized the
announcement tLat he would write no
further communication respecting the
presidential nom nation. Almost coinct
dent with the reception of this announce
ment was a flashing of brilliant red
badges containing the name and face oi

brougii, of North Dakota, says Blaine
will be nominatec without violating the

THE TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.
Harrison Men Said to Have Won This
General Horace Porter, of New York,
will probably be temporary chairman.
Yesterday afternoon it looked as though
unless the friends of Harrison should de
cide to make the issue with the anti-Harrison
men for the chairmanship, John M.
Langston, the colored ex-representative
from Virginia, would take the gavel from
the hands of Clarkson when the conven
tion is organized next Tuesday. The
friends of Harrison were talking of placing
in nomination General Porter, of Xew
York, if the national committee should
recommend the selection of Langston, but
many of the Harrison leaders thought that
it would be poor policy to precipitate at the
organization of the convention the con
test which was expected to come later.
Will Not Fight Langston.
So they started out to work up the can
didacy of General Porter in the national
owmniittee and at a conference held last
evening they figured oat a majority of six
for their candidate. It was decided that
if there should be a change in the situa
tion today and Langston should be named
by the national committee, the result
would be accepted as final and no fight
would be made in the convention, but the
indications are that the Harrison men
have gained their first victory and that
General Porter will be the temporary
Will Stick to Langston.
At a meeting of the members of the na
tional committee opposed to President
Harrison's renomination, held at 11 o'clock
last night, it was determined to press the
nn,e .of Jonn M. Langston, colored, of
Virginia, as a candidate for temporary
chairman of the convention.
Silver Men Talking Paltform.
There is no talk of thp nlifnrm r v.
cept among the representatives from the
silver states. Senator H:nsbrough said
last evening that he supposed either Sena
tor Teller or Senator Wolcott, of Colorado,
would lead the silver forces on the com
mittee on resolutions and naturally would
insist upon a free coinage plank.
The Sixteenth Amendment.
James M. King, general secretary ot
the National League for the Protection of
American Institutions, will present a
memorial asking that the platform en

Another Anti-Harrison Estimate.
Tbe anti-admiuistratiou leaders held a
secret conference last night and canvassed
the pre f erences of the delegates. At its
close the announcement was made that
President Harrison could depend upon
347 delegates while 5ol were counted in
opposition to him.
Doesn't Alarm Harrlsnnlons.
The Harrison men say the Clarksou
Fassctt figures are unreliable and .based on
a hope merely; that they are wrong, for
instance, as to California, Illinois, New
York, Tennessee aud Minnesota. Thtv
say they have all the figures in detail tLa't

Alger's Lithographs Delay His Itonin.
The expected Alger boom failed to
materialize. This wan largely due to the
fact that some 2.000 lithographs of the
Michigan candidate, which had been
shipped from Detroit parly in the week,
had been side tracked, en route and con
sequently had failed to materialize.

Chicago, June 4. It was claimed by the
Blaine men last night that all doubt of

vention at Minneapolis is now removed.
Among the dispatches received by Em

it is said there was one from his mother
wnicn read: "Pa will accept." While
not admitting that he had received it
young Mr. Blaine intimated that the in
formation It contained was not new to
him. Blaine will now be regarded as a
Report of "Strained Relations."
When the contents of the teW
Emmons Blaine became known the
port gained currency that the official rela
tions oeiweeu riaine and Harrison were
completely ruptured. Tl iere was
erable speculation as to the effect of the
telegram on his candidacy. Many of his
friends said he had the nomination sure

but it is staled that no opposition to Cleve

Washington-, June 4. The sub-committee
of the house committee on inter
state and foreign commerce, appointed to
make a preliminary investigation into the
alleged Reading railroad deal, has re

secured enough evidence to warrant a full
investigation into the matter, and recom
mend that it be made. Tne matter was

tee and postponed until Tuesday next,
when it will be taken up and disposed of.
From the discussion it is thought that the
committee will adopt a resolution recom
mending the inquiry.
Another Murder at Santa Fe.
Santa Fe, X. M., June 4. Another
murder occurred here Thursday night, J.
M. Dominguetz being shot down in a side,
street by unknown parties. Frank Bor

picion. There is some talk here of
lynching Borrego. The trouble grows out
of a feud of some years' standing, when
Borrego, then county coroner, shot and

der of ex-Sheriff Chaves on Sunday night
is generally believed to be the outgrowth
of tbe same feud.
