PREPARING FOR ACTION. The Delegate? Are Drawing Near to Minneapolis. HARRISONS FRIENDS II STRONG ARRAY. His Headquarters the First to Be Established -Deptw Confident of the President's Recom'nation. Clarkson Talks for Elaine. Special to The MorninG Calx. Minneapolis, June I.— The advance guard of convention workers came in this afternoon, and Harrison's parlors were opened at the West Hotel. The arrivals this afternoon were for Harrison, and were of the most enthusiastic kind, and all came from Indiana. The early opening of tbe Harrison headquarters is a surDri.se to the Blame men, who expected to be the first when they come in with the national com mittee to morrow. In short, the Presi dent's friends have stolen a march on the Blame boomers, and their sudden arrival ceaus a fight from start to finish. It Is said that their unannounced arrival and the quiet opening cf the headquarters were made nt telegraphic instructions from Washington, and the men sent here and to to-morrow Hre the same ones who did so much for Harrison's nomination r (Jeneral Mtchner and John C. New will be tn command. R. K. Shiels, who was with the arrivals said that it was certainly bad taste for Quay, l'latt ami Foraker, whose jndgotents wer« not backed by the records, to attempt t> dictate who the Presi dential nominee slmll be. The Blame sentiment, he SBjd, is not so strong as is believed. It is m re rroperly an anti- Barrison sentiment, and tne leaders are williug to unite upon any one to defeat Harrison. Shiel* further I there was no shadow of doubt but that Harrison will be renominated. "We have the dele pates with which to do it, and if. is f > talic of any serious opposition to the President-" Washington, June I.— There is a gen eral feeling to-day that President Harrison will be nomiuntrd on the first ballot. The Blame talk appears to have subsided some what siol his support rs are not as clamor ous as they have been for the last few days. AT CHICAGO. Tlie Lenders Arriving nnd Huldli u Con- ferenc#i — A Banquet In Milwaukee. Chicago, June I.— Republican politicians are plenty at the hotels this morning and conferences among the leaders are con stantly held. Senator Hansbrough of North Dakota has advices that five of the sis dele gates from his State for Maine are ill, but two of the South Dakota delegation, who were Instructed for Hanisou, have gone over to Bialn»». The members of the national executive cciuoiit'.ee left for Milwaukee this after- on. They will be banqueted by Henry C. Payne to-night, and proceed to Minne apolis to-morrow. The matter will not be definitely settled until Saturday, when the Committee will meet in Minneapolis but it row seems tr bni'le that Hon. Thomas Bred of Maine will b=? temporary chairman. The friend* of Harrison were boomine him a- well as claiming various delegations and leaders tor him, among others Governor Mc- Kiuley of Ohio. DEPEWS VIEWS. Be It Confident of th« Nomination of I'rriident HariKon Chicago, June I.— Chauncry M. Bepew arrived to-night. Speaking of the possi bility of Biaine being a candidate, he said: "Harrison is almost certain, to be the nominee of the convention, but in case Blame is nominated and refuse?, then Har risnn could not be a candidate for an office decline'! by the chief officer of Uis Cabinet. The demoralization of such an event would srread all ever the country and the party would b»» defeated before the election bfgi-.n. The inevitable and irresistible logic of the situation is the nomlua ti n of President Harrison. The only chance to beat Harrison is that the convention should vote for half a d' zen favorite goes and prevent a choice until hi 9 opponents could concentrate on somebody. The supreme effort to induce Blame to become » candidate has practi cally retired everybody but him, go that unless Blalrie allows his name to be pre sented, Harrison will bf nominated by the potential forc»' of his record and friends." He said: "No'.hinj could be more sug pfstive nl the difficulties of the situation to the orient? of Harrison than the spec tacle of practical politicians like Platt. Quay, Clark«"n and others flirting with the ghost of Csesar ana the coftiu of Mahomet." CLAI4H.SO>'B CHOICE. Tie lSelierea That BUioc Is the Strongest Candidate. Chicago, June I.— Chairman Clarkson of the National Republican Committee before leaving for Minneapolis to-night sail: "Tie resuit of the conventions in the differ ites was to give the President 290 in structed votes. This left over 600 unm- Btsucted :.nd unpledged delegates. In my ii '.he reason for this action is that in tbe North there Is still a generally cherished party hope that Blame might be secured as a candidate. The question now to be set tl d by Republicans is whether Harrison is l;etter entitled to two teri;;> than Blame is to one. " 'J'he movement toward Blame is that of the Basse*. I have an equally kind feeling i j , yet I prefer some other man than t itht-r, out it 1-* not the question of personal preference this year, but party necessity, ;»* we shall need our strongest man to win. 1; M'mn to be the opinion of a strou? ma jority of the Republicans of the doubtful States that Blame is the strongest leader of the party, it is going to be a good-natured contest and I hope to see whoever shall be ehoiea selected by acclamation. "The talk that there is any disrespect for Pre-ident Harrlsoo it unfounded. The sentiment of New York is overwhelmingly for Klaine, as it is al«o in Ohio, Wisconsin, Illinois and the Northwest, while in the country W«Bt of tie Mississippi River there is almost a unanimous demand for Blnine if be can be had. As to the temporary chair nianstiipof the convention, 1 think there are more members who would support Re-<i than any other man. Expressing my own choice, 1 think wi> ought to have a colored Repub lican either as temporary or permanent chatrinau." IiEMOCKATIC DISCUKD. ConflietiDc; Opinion* on lh« Effect of the Syracune I'ohtfdUod. Wapiunoton. June I.— At tlite moment it may fairly be said that the ma j rity ol the Democrats, irrespective of their wishes, believe that Cleveland is go ing to be nominated in spite of all opposi tion and notwithstanding the injudicious action of many of his friends. Representative Castle of Minnesota to day said: "There will be no bad effects from the Syracuse convention. No one think* for a moment that the contesting delegation will be admitted to the conven tion, and the action at Syracuse is not go ing to injure Cleveland in the least Cleve land is bound to bo nominated." Mr. Whiting of Michigan, who was with Mr. Castle, took a directly opposite view of the matter. "I think the action of the Syncuse convention,' he said, "makes it extremely orobable that some one other than Mr. Cleveland will be nominated at Chicago. Very many of those who would rather see Mr. Cleveland in the White House than any one else feel that he can not carry New York and that he cannot be elected. The cool-headed men in the con vention will very likely conclude that the contest over the delegation to start with doe 3 not give promisif of success if the caampiun of one of the factious is made the candidate." ~ Mr. Dockery "f Missouri said: "Party disorganization is not to be excused. It is «n evil no matter how gr*at is the name of Hie man b ■•hind whom it is masked.' Sir. Forney of Alabama said that he thought the Syracuse convention would -psotably injure Mr. Cleveland. Mr. Hatch r.I Missouri said "the action of the convention is tiie greatest blunder ihose Iks have made since they decided to hold Hie convention." Representative Baloa of Tennessee said that in his opinion the Syracusn convention went too far; Mia*, lite creation of auuther The Morning Call. party organization in that State seemed a decided mistake and that it would have been better alto not to nominate a contest ing delegation, but to rest content with a protest. Judge de Forest of Connecticut said that the action at Syracuse would proven mis take assuming that the February conven tion was regular, however unsatisfactory that convention may have been to many Democrats. If the February delegates were regular, the Syracuse delegates are irregu lar. He thought, granting the former as sumption, that the election of new delegates and committeemen at Syracuse was an unwise step. There Is a remarkable degree of agreement on this point to-day among the Senators and Representatives of a 1 shades of politics. Cleveland men, nnti- Cleveland Democrats and Republicans are practically in accord f»r once. FLOItIDA DEMOCRATS. Prospect of an Exciting Contest In the State Convention. Tampa, Fla., June I.— The Democratic State convention met at noon. It will prob ably be in session three or four day-, as there is a hot fight on between the friend? and opponents of Judge Mitchell for the Gubernatorial nomination, and the seating of one or two contesting delegations from Duvall County may decide the matter. The Alliance men, if they can hold together the balance of power, promise to complicate nialteis by demanding the convention to Indorse the "Ocala demands" aud the St. Louis platform. John M. McKerrls was made temporary chairman, a triumph for th« Mitchell men.

The ayes and noes were called on the consideration, and resulted— ayes 25, noes 12. There was no quorum and a call was ordered. Hill and Hunton of Virginia, the new Senator, voted in the nflirmative. The called showed an impossibility of se curing a quorum without breaking pair!, so the bill passed over without prejudice mid the Senate resumed consideration of the cal endar. On motion of Aldrich, and without a sin gle dissent from either side of the chamber, it was decided that no vote should be taken on the free coinage bill until niter June 14, and in all probability there will be none un til after the Chicago convention Is finished. This agreement was arrived at after Sherman man closed two days' azrutnant against the bill, which his last words characterized as "a frightful demon to be resisted and op posed."

In a small .way tobacco has always been grown and cigars manufactured at Sin Felipe, 11 miles from here. The fine quality of the tobacco has attracted the attention of experts, who say it fully rivals that of the best Havana product. A company is about forming with San Francisco capital to back it to plant and manufacture on a large scale. Fifty acres are planted this year, which ill be largely increased next year. There is no doubt thiit the soil and climatic conditions of this valley are peculiarly favorable to the growth and cure of the finest leaf, and those getting up the company are justifiably sanguine of profitable results.

It is to many »pry doubtful whether the substitute would have carried had it not been for this action. it Is a|«n believed that it was contrary to the wish of the moderator, and only under sweming compulsion tint lie allowed the arbitration resolution to go through, -v W?

The drop for twenty-* four hours ending with noon to-day was) only three and one-ball inches, and Us* gauge marked 28 feet 4% inches at the latter hour. It is contvdnd now that all danger of a break on this side in the levees to the iou'.U of the city is about over. The current is running swiftly and mast result in a thorough scouring of the bed. The sluggish current of the high water for several days is said to have resulted in a heavy deposit in the neighborhood of the old Paine place. This, it was feared, might form a bar that might interfere with tat* summer navigation. The swift current now prevailing will, it is behaved, remove this impediment. At mklnigbt the river was still falling ■lowly. It is now eight inches below the highest point reached a few days ago. K:\.\GLS OVtKSTOCKF;r>. Cattlemen Will Endeavor to Step Down tit lac-ease.

Rather unusual, you think, to find the makers of a medi- cine trying to prove that they be- lieve in it. "There must be some- thing back of it ! " . But it's a plain, square offer, made in good faith. The only thing that's back of it is the Remedy. It cures Catarrh in the Head. To its mild, soothing, cleansing and healing properties, the worst cases yield, no matter how bad or of how long standing. It has a record that goes back for 25 years* It doesn't cimply relieve —it perfectly and permanently cures. "With a Rem- edy like this, the proprietors can make such an offer and mean it. To bo euro there's risk in it, bat It's so very email that they are willing to take it. You've " never heard of anything like this offer?" True enough. But then you've never heard of anything like Dr. Sage'a Remedy. ap'-'3 "y cod "p &%¥% fl S3 ES? S2 BUSINESS Book-keeping. Penmanship, Short-h»nd.Typ»-wrUia«.
