I believe we may early look to Uie end of all misunderstanding and the genu ine union of all our forces," London, June 14.— Timothy Harrington, Parnellite, on being interviewed on Mc- Carthy's cablegram refusing his proposed terms of compromise, said: "McCarthy per sonally is ignorant of the situation in Ire land as regards the elections or he would accept -.villi delight our propositions as sav ing an enormous amount of unpleasant strife. Dillon's proposal Is impracticable. Besides the enormous difficulty in selecting a board of arbitration to obtain reliable knowledge of the strength of the parties, the issue to be so decided is 100 narrow. Each party ought to maintain iti present strength till Gladstone has disclosed his policy and the members of each should be willing to exchange seats where there is a Parnellite representing the McCarthyite con st Itueney, and vice versa.

Depew returned home from Minneapolis to iv. He said he had not been offered the Secretaryship of State, nnd would not ac cept if be bad. He does not believe Quay or Piatt will oppose the Republican ticket. He also thinks the nomination of Reid will strengthen the ticket, and. says: "You will find in this campaign that there will be no flies on this ticket." Ex-Senator Miller says: "There is no cause for despondency so far as the Repub lican party and its success in the coming campaign are concerned. While the friends of Blame are greatly disappointed at the failure to nominate him, they have already begun to realize that the party Is greater than any personal consideration, and they heartily acquiesce in the result of the convention. They will go to work for the ticket and help carry it to suc cess. The nomination of Reid is a most satisfactory one. lt will add strength to the party not only in this State, where he ia best known, but throughout the country. There is no reason why Harrison should not be stronger to-day than he was four years ago, and 1 am satisfied that such is the case." GKNEKoI Ol ■ ____.

New York, June 14 —The nerald's Washington correspondent, speculating on the outcome of the Chicago convention, says: "Cleveland will have no walkover, but the Democratic leaders at Washington believe lie ex-President will have to fight hard for the nomination, Gorman Is the choice of apparently a majority of his Sena torial confreres." Of the platform the correspondent says: "An effort to obtain a strong civil service reform plank in the Democratic national platform is being made by the Democratic members of Congress Interested in the sub ject, and the silver plank is the subject of considerable discussion among them. The silver men seem less disposed to make an aggressive fight than the representatives of the mining States at the Bepublican con vention. The opponents of free coinage are not expecting much difficulty in obtaining a plank they want, and the friends of free coinage have evidently lost heart by re peated defeats in the Democratic ranks. Senator Stewart, tho Republican silver agitator from Neva. said, in reply to a question as to what tho Democrats would do on the silver question: "Bah I tiiey will do the same as the Ke publicans. Why, the gold bugs would send $1,000,000, or £2, 000,000 if necessary, to buy uu the whole conven tion." Representative Bland, tho Democratic free coinage advocate, is equally hopeless. The fact that one of the counties in his dis trict recently adopted resolutions advising that the tariff be made the predominant issue, seems to bave killed bis ardor. All that could be got from him as to whether an earnest fight would be made at Chicago for free silver coinage was, "I do not know; 1 do not kuow what will be done."". AGAINST CLEVELAND. A Large Fund Expended to Elect Antl- Cleveland Delegates. New York. June 14.— Tribune's Washington special says: A report is in circulation to the effect that the fund of .300.000 raised to aid tho election of anti- Cleveland delegates in the various States has all been expended. It is also asserted that Palmer's boon. Morrison's boom, Geary's boom, Carlisle's boumletand Patter sou's bounder, as well as the Hill boom, have all received aid and encouragement from the anti-Cleveland organization, the chief managers of which aro asserted to be Hill. Gorman and Brice. Whatever founda tion there may be for these assertions, it is cert . in that many Democrats in Washington believe them and find therein their only ground for tho hope that the nomination of Cleveland may be prevented. Most of them frankly confess, however, that the pros pects of success seem exceedingly doubtful. THE CLEVELAND CYCLONE. A Kentucky Correspondent *-»>•- It Will Sweep the Convent Chicago, June 14.— 0. O. Stealey, tho Washington correspondent of the Louisville Courier-Journal, is in this city to attend tho convention. In a dispatch to his paper to night he stated that the Cleveland cyclone here next week will sweep everything be lore it and Cleveland will be nominated by acclamation before the rollcall Is half fin ished. He concludes his dispatch as fol lows: "Since we cannot have John G. Carlisle for President this year let us make him the permanent president of the greatest Democratic convention that ever met in this country. He is the man to answer McKinley's Minneapolis speech, and will make a taniff reform argument that will ring from one end of the country to the other." OHIO DEMOCRATS.

Thurman of Columbus and L. T. Neal of Chillicothe. There is a strong fight being made on the candidacy of Cleveland. Alien VV. Thur man is pronounced in this regard, and his success will bo recognized as a Cleveland victory. The opposition, however, is well organized and have won about every contest In the caucus to-day. The best judges analyze the delegation to stand 10 or 12 for Cleveland, about the same number are ranked for Hill and tbe remainder of tbe 46 are unpledged, but bave a strong feeling for Cleveland. • ARKANSAS DEMOCRATS.

FARMERS .TILL FUSE. They Mutt Unite With the Democrats to Carry Knn.a-. Wichita, June 14. — Delegates to the Fanners' Alliance State convention, which meets to-morrow to nominate a full State ticket, are discussing only one question— "Shall tho Farmers' Alliance fuse with the Democrats?" At a recent conference of the Alliance and Democratic leaders at Kaunas City a plan of fusion was fully arranged. A portion of the plan was executed to-day at Emporla.when the Farmers' Alliance nomi nated K. V. Wharton for Congress, who is an ex-Democrat, whom the Democrats In dorsed. The question now is will the rest of the plau be carried out. There is a strong fusion sentiment among the more conservative delegates, and the leaders realize that without Democratic aid they cannot hope for success. It looks to-night as if the fusion idea would prevail. Jerry Simpson's renomination for Con gress this afternoon will probably kill his gubernatorial boom. The Farmers' Alliance convention of the Seventh Congressional District has renomi nated Jerry Simpson by acclamation, lt is believed tbat Simpson will he indorsed by the Democrats of the district.

Graves had been dug all in one row, two feet apart, each opening being maiked for the body to be placed in it. The marines and sailors formed a square around tbe graves and in the presence of baied heads and sad hearts the bodies were lowered. Chaplain J. K. Lewis, U. S.

Thore is still a great deal ot speculation as to how the disaster occurred. Gunner Johnson, in charge of the magazine, fur nishes one theory, which seems the most reasonable advanced. "The powder is brought from the magazine," bo said, "in quantities just sufficient fur immediate use. At the time of the explosion there was prob ably .50 pounds of gunpowder in the filling rooai. The men were charging 6-inch cop per shells with three pounds and a quarter of powder each. The fine black explosive is poured into the small opening at the apex of the shell through a copper funnel. A small copper rod is kept constantly moving up and down through the spout of the funnel to keep the powder moving freely. My opinion is that the powder stuck, and the man who was working the copper rod became impatient and jammed it down hard. The friction ignited the powder, which, of course, exploded with sufficient force to fire the rest of the powder in the room. The concussion caused the shells to burst, and the fusillade began. A most extraordinary thing is that, after the flames were completely extinguished we found several cases of brown prismatic powder with the outsides all charred and burned, yet the intense heat had not been sufficient to cause the powder to explode." A telegram has been received from the "Secretary of the Navy instructing that a commission be at once appointed to investi gate the explosion, and it is rumor. I that a general court-martial will be held, In which some of the naval officers la the yard will be the principal actors, y " 1 CONDENSED TELEGRAMS.
