CHOOSING THE CANDIDATES. OeTfiand's Friends Hold an Important Conference. WBITSEI assumes TOE leadership. Friends of th« Other Aspirants Canvassing the Field— Gorman's Boom Growing— Boies Has a Large Following. Special to The Morning Calx* Chicago, June 17.— rattling fire of the skirmish line can already be heard, and ■vrithin 24 hour, the battle will be on. Boies has been the first to see his squadrons in the field and his forces have already been deployed for the contest. They are a plashing lot of fellows, those men from lowa, and there is the smack of the wild and woolly West In the vim with which they go at every obstacle. Nothing seems to daunt th?m, and their confidence iv their leader is superb. If Boies does not win it will not be because of any lack of enthusi asm on the part of his followers, or because they have not grit and grim determination. Still there are very few people here out side of the lowa contingent who believe that Boies has any show to come out of the conflict with victory perched on his ban ners, and the majority*^ the political wise acres seem to think that bis boom is a great big bluff inaugurated for the purpose of landing the lowa Governor In the second place. This may or may not be true, just as one sees fit to look at it, but the fact remains jast the same that whenever a Boies man is asked If ins candidate wculd accept the second place on the ticket he shrewdly shrugs his shoul ders, looks wise, and says that no man was ever known to refuse the honor. It must be acknowledged that very few have, except Mike de Young, who was offered it in his mind. CLEVELAND'S CHANCES. A Strong Opposition Being Organized Agaln at Him. Chicago, June 17.— Thus far the surface indications are ali in favor of Cleveland, but there are net many shrewd on-1 okers who would be badly surprised if tie ex-President was knocked out. The fact is that he has anything but a walkover, aad the field is against him. Beyond this the great man agers an out for his sca'p, and tnere is not •11 told a dozen of the men who figure con spicuously iii national polities who are for him. Brice has no use for him, and Colonel Eugene Higgins loves him not. Watterson makes no effort to conceal his anlag and Colonel Joe Rickey of Missouri says Cleveland is not in it Then there is Dick Croker and Billy Sheehan and ail the rest of tfie Tammany gang, who are for Hill and who will stop at nothing to humiliate G rover. If it were not for the two-thirds rule •which operates In Democratic conventions, Cleveland would stand a good chance for a Domination on the first ballot and two days would probably be sufficient to wind up the whole show, bat as it Is the struggle is likely to be prolonged. No one can be found who has temerity enough to deny that Cleveland has a flat majority of the 898 delegates who will be here, but even his friends admit that he is nearly ICO short of the 599 necessary to nominate. Of course they claim that they will make this all up in good time, and there is a possibility of their doing so, but that remains to be seen. They are applying every artifice of poll- . tics to make up the discrepancy, while the anti-Cleveland force* are striving with equal energy to keep him down. It is safe to assume t : at no effort will be spared by the practical politicians to break the battle line of the Cleveland forces. This is evi denced by the frank sentiment of the oppo sition voiced by such leaders as Gorman, Croker, Watterson, Brlce and in fact almost every competent graduate and master of the school of practical politics. CLAIMS OF THE OPPOSITION. Cleveland's Friends Charged With Being Place-Hnnters. Chicago. June 17.— The same cry of be ing the office-holders' candidate, uttered by so many throats ai Minneapolis last week against Harrison, is being repeated against Cleveland here. The anti-Cleveland men point to Vilas, Whitney, Fairchild and the other champions of the ex-President as ex amples of the EOit of men who want him nominated. They also claim that at least one-third of the delegates who are pledged to him held office under his administration or are actuated to support him under the bone of securing substantial recognition after he has snatched the plum. Although the fight is not yet really on, there are already indications that would seem to point to the fact that the struggle will be similar in many respects to that waged at Minneapolis two weeks ago. The bogies and the howlers are opposed to Cleveland just as. they were opposed to Harrison. On the other band, the conserva tives in the party, and, to some extent, the younger clement of its followers, are san guine in their confidence that.. Cleveland will be the nominee. From a very careful canvass of the Held as it now appears the lit nation is about this: Cleveland lacks sufficient votes to nominate, and unless there is a break in the in. perfectly organ ized opposition be cannot win. Oil the other hand the anti-Cleveland standard-bearer, yet to be decided upon, cannot command votes enough to carry the convention unless the Cleveland men are won away from him. That in about the present shape of affairs, but it is so early in she gamp that the guessers are still badly at sea and floundering around in every direc tion. The Hill men are certainly in earnest and, whether right or wrong, claim to be lieve that they have all the best of it. Croker, Sheehan, Peck, Murphy and all the rest of that crowd are working like Tro jans and their arguments are not to be sneezed at, no matter how one may regard the general outlook. C»I met Peck this afternoon, and had a long talk with him. "Hill is bound to be nom inated," he said, "and I cannot conceive of any possible combination in which he can be defeated. He can carry New York by 50.000, and is tne only man in the party who can. lam absolutely sure that Cleve land cannot, and if nominated Harrison would lead him by 30.000 in our State. i tell you Cleveland Is a 'dead duck,' and no power on earth can ever bring him back to life. Hill is stronger in all the Democratic States, and weaker, perhaps, in those of a Republican complexion, Jast look at what Bill has done in New York. For seven years he has carried the State, and each time with an increased majority. This has given us all the State and municipal patronage, and we have gained the State Senate. How hns it been done? Simply by getting the young men to take a hand, and then rewarding them for faithful service. They are with us to a man." VIEWS OF LEADERS. Missouri In F«Tor of Morrison — Gorman's Boom Growing. Chicago, June 17.— Early in the day I Colonel J. Rickey of Missouri, who is one of the shrewdest political manipulators in the West, drifted into the Palmer House and fell Into the arms of Grif Pratlier. The colonel's round, good-natured face was clean shaven and smiling, and be announce.] himself in loud tones for Morrison of Illinois. "1 tell you what," he said with great emphasis, "neither Cleveland nor Hill can win thib tight. The Democratic i arty has a little sense left, and they know that neither of those men could win after the tight which has been made. You will find that Cleve land will be about 100 votes short on the first ballot, and from that time on he will steadily lose ground. When it is seen that he is kn eked out, the convention will naturally look to the West, and Morrison is the only man to win. lie is the father of tariff reform and a man of undoubted auilixy. Campbell I do not consider a dangerous man, because he lives in a Democratic State and has been defeated. Buie3 Ido not re gard even as a possibility. Morrison will bo the man."" Ex-Senator Henry G. Davis of West Ver The Morning Call. ginia, tall, urbane and prosperous loouug, crime in this afternoon with Senator Arthur P. Gorman cf Maryland. Davis is Secretary Eikins' father-in-law and President Harri son's intimate friend. His mother and Gor man'* were si6ters. M NoW, please excuse me," said Mr. Davis, "for I do not feel that lam in a position to talk just now. Who are we for? Well, 1 should say our delega tion, we Maryland people, are all for Gor man, if be wants the nomination, but if he decides not to allow hi* name to be pre sented to the convention I think wo would favor Mr. Cleveland. But that, of course, will not be decided till we have looked over the ground." Gorman was seen also, but he was ex tremely reticent. In manner he was affable and kind, but he had evidently gone to Chi cago to work and not to talk. "I haw»not!i ing to say," said he, with a smile as he eliup.-d Into his private apartments and closed the door safely behind him. SCENES OF EXCITEMENT. Bill's Picture* Removed From a Hotel. Brice Snub* Crnker. Chicago, June 17.— There was an incipi ent riot in tl:e rotunda of the Palmer HouM this morning, caused by the manager ordering the pictures of Hill, which had been posted all over the walls and windows, to be torn down. His reason, he said, was that the Hill men were not patrons of his hotel and he proposed to reserve all the ad vertising space available for the candidates who were making the hotel their head quarters. The Hiil men then let out a roar that could be beard for a block or more and thieatenrd at firsu to teardown tne portraits of Cleveland and Botet, but they fiaully sub gided and let tha matter drop. I witnessed a very peculiar scene in the Palmer House this afternoon. Brie* and Dick Groker came out of a private room and the luce of the latter was distorted with aa angry scowl. Croker walked at Urice's side and held the chairman of the National C' miuittee by the sleeve of his coat. They were talfcinz in a low tone. All at once Brice stopped short, and turnip.-; on the Tammany chief said In an angry U ne, "I w.iut." This he repeated several times and then walked on. Croker clmtg to him and continued to talk in a (■ ' ne till Brice reached the door of his room. He then Jerked away from Croker and blurted out, "I a say, and that settles It." Then he disap peared, and Croker st:ode away in the direc tion of the stairs. No one could be found who knew the cause of the trouble. ANDERSON'S FIGURES. An Estimate of tho Probable Iteiult of the First Ballot. Chicago, June 17.— Among the Cleve land boomers who arrived to-night is E. Ellery Anderson of New York, who was one of the leading suirits In the ant.--uap convention. Mr. Anderson is a firm believer In the luck of the stuffed prophet, and says that Cleveland will have 500 votes on the firs! roilcall. According to his calculation Hill will have bat 260 votes on t! • ballot, instead of 314 claimed by the Sena- I leads. Hut .Mr. Anderson also re duces Cleveland's a knowledged strength in Indiana. The delegates from that Mate are instructed to vote for the ex-President on the first ballot and his credits their entire 90 votes to Gray. However, Anderson does not admit that all of the votes in the Bill column will be for the Senator, but sajs he placed thorn there because they are nn doubtedlv nnti-Cleveland. He thin; that after the roll is called enough votes will be taken from Boies, Palmer, Car!..-le and Gray to land Cleveland at the top of the ticket. Mr. Anderson's table is as follows: States. c a s X V m c 9 < - St P - ■ ■= B a : : : Alabama I Arkansas California Colorado Connecticut Delaware Florida Georgia Illinois Idaho : Indiana lowa Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Maine Maryland Massachusetts Michigan Minnesota Missouri Mississippi Montana Nebraska Nevada New Hampshire New* Jersey New York North Carolina North Dakota Ohio Oregon Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Carolina South I»a_ota Tennessee Texas Vermont Virginia "Washington West Virginia "Wisconsin "Wyoming Arizona New Mexico Utah Oklahoma District of Columbia. j 22 10 18 8 12 6 8 26 48 0 30 26 20 26 16 12 16 30 28 18 34 18 l» ! o ! 0 - i! ■ N ' - I 25 I 2S I 18 34 ■ 10 ! 10 I 0 i 7 i 20 : 0 ■ ** :: 10 0 a 61 17 0 0 o! • 5 I o 5 0 0 0 s 6 8 li i 0 10 3 IG 4 s 3 i !

In fact, Richard is a little inclined to sneer at these figures, and as lie sat in the Auditorium to day puffing away at a long, black cigar he laughed at the idea. He preferred to dis cuss the Suburban and !>aid so emphatically. But when shown Anderson's figures he said scornfully: "Those fellows are great on figures, but figures ain't votes." When inlormed that ex -Secretary Fairchild claimed a majority for Cleveland on the first ballot, Croker retorted: "Is that so? Weil, thai fellow ought to be a Democrat before he goes to shootinsr off that mouth of his. lie ain't, though. He's a Mugwump and just talks at random. Those figures don't worry us a bit." "But, Mr. Croker," was suggested, •*theie are telegrams from New York State that Tammany is ready to throw Hill over board." "Is that so? Well, don't believe it, my dear boy. Tammany is for Hill, and any body who says it ain't don't know what he is talking about," and the big chief turned away to rejoin his braves. There Is no doubt but that Tammany is strictly in it. They have nearly the whole of the first floor of the Auditorium, and their short haired pluguglies revel in the midst of the most luxuriant surroundings. The main parlor of the hotel has been given up to their literary bureau, which is kept in ope ration day and night, and where arguments are ground out by the yard to show that 11.11 is the only man on earth who has any claims to the Presidency. They claim that Hill can carry New York with a whoop and that Cleveland couldn't carry one side of it. A SHAKY STRUCTURE. The Great Convention Wigwam Con demned by California* Delegates. Chicago, June 17.— Russell D. Stephens of Sacramento and John Bryson of Los Angeles are both here and are being enter tained to-night. Bryson was elected as an alternate-at-large, but will probably take the place of James V. Coleman. who Is In Europe. Both are for Cleveland nnd say that the delegation will vote as a unit for the ex-President. Bryson also went down this afternoon and looked at the Wigwam. When he came back hi face wore a serious expression and he said he did not consider the big bull pen safe and for one he didn't care to take any chances. The fact is that a great deal of anxiety is being expressed concerning the Wigwam, and hundreds of people here f^ar that it will not stand the pressure of a crowd of 20,000 people. It is a trail, ramshackle af fair of thin boards, and looks like a section of the stockyards. There are no center supports for the roof, in order not to ob scure the view, and the heavy roof, it is feared, may collapse. Experts are divided in opinion, and the authorities are worried. By the way, it is estimated that there will be 10,000 Boies boomers here from lowa by Sunday morning, and during the afternoon of that day it is their intention to give a mammoth parade just to show the delegates how they do things out in the creat West. The Boies men to-night opened their per manent headquarters with considerable en thusiasm. One hundred members of the Tuscarora Club of Salt Lake, headed by Judge Or lando W. Powers, arrived here to-night, and With them was a drum COTM of 22 members. Judge Powers said: "We aro for free silver and acainst Morrnonism; that is just how we stand." Hanky M. Tod. ON THE FIKST BALLOT. The Teat of Cleveland's Strength to Be Early Decided. Chicago, Juno 17.— Many Presidential barks are to9»in£ on tbe political tea to SAX FKAXCISCO, SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE IS, 1892— EIGHT PAGES. night, but through the mi3t and shadows the hull of Clevelaud's hopes looms up ominously above all. Everybody real;/.-? 8 that the great question of the convention is, " Will Cleveland be nominated on the fir9t ballot?" Should the question be answered In the negative the friends of all secondary candidates will feel that the list? are open to their favorites, for somehow the convic tion lias gone forth that the failure M the ex-President to receive the nomination on the first ballot means the eiimluation of that great tariff reformer from the contest. This opinion Is entertained by the delegations who have favorite sons, but it by no means follows that the correctness of this opinion is conceded by the Cleveland managers. They maintain, however, that while they believe their man will be nominated on the first ballot, the failure to receive the requi site two-thirds vote then will not be an in dication of his subsequent defeat, for they expect important accessions from the fol lowers of Boies, Ilill and Gray after they have paid compliiu eutary tribute to their favorite sins. Various Presidential candidates, dark horses and possibilities are being discussed to-night. They include Cleveland. II ill and Flower of Now York, Boies of lowa, Palmer of Illinois, Gray of Indiana, Gorman of Maryland, Carlisle of Kentucky, Morrison of Illinois, Campbell of Ohio, Russell of Massachusetts and Pattison of Pennsylva nia. .Probably Palmer and Gorman will have a following on the rirst ballot, but the ethers figure entirely as dark horses and compromise candidates. STRONG IN BIS STATE. Delegates From the Syracuse Convention Counteracting Murphy's Manifesto. Chicago, June 17.— The delegates from the Syracuse convention are a good deal stirred up over the Murphy manifesto, and a number of them are prepared with re sponses, designed to counteract its effects and show that Cleveland is not only the Wrongest niaa in the Democratic party in New York, but that he could carry the State, and would get a large number of independent end Republican votes which no other Democrat could. Among the anti-snap delegates to-day Ed ward B. Whitney of Brooklyn said of Hill: "lie is a n;p.n who will be treacherous to anybody, and there Is no u?e trying to humor him wilh the nomination, because he will not know until election day whether he will be true or fahe. Every other Demo crat of the State of New Fork will vote for Cleveland, if nominated. Fur tajit reason, although there are many Democrats whom I would personally prefer to Cleveland for the Presidential nomination, I think he is by far t!ie most available candidate for the State i>i New York." Ex-Mayor Grace, in an interview, made a careful statement of his views ou the situa tion. Harrison, he said, is strong: in New York because of his conservative views on the currency. Cleveland is the ideal candi date to oppose him. and is the only man who can draw to himself the independent vote of New York. This independent vote, Mr. Grace thinks, amounts to between 40,000 and 60,000. Mr. Grace thinks if Cleveland is nominated Tammany Hall and Brooklyn will fall into line enthusiastically. Tlie Hill leaders appear to receive re newed hopes from tlm events of the past few days and are working energetically for their candidate with the apparent convic tion that success will crown their efforts In the end. PALMER OF WYOMING. The Son of a Presidential Possibility Joins the Hill Forces. Chicago, June 17.— unusual spec tacle of a son of a Presidential candidate working against bis father was witnessed to-day in the New York delegation head quarters. Louis J. Palmer of Wyoming entered the Hill headquarters and, being presented to Mr. Croker, said: "I called DDOfl you to tell you that lama Hill man. If my father had been an active candidate I should have been for him and would have done all I could in the West, but as he has practically withdrawn and has declared for Cleveland, that leaves me free to follow my own judgment. I am emphatically opposed to the renominatton of Cleveland ana think tne majority of the people of Wyoming acree with me. When be became President he filled that State with carpet-buggers and gave all the offices to people from outside. Harrison has done just the contrary and made himself so strong in the Mate that if Cleveland 19 nominated it will be useless for Democrats to put up a .State ticket." "So it would be in New York." said Croker. "We have nothing against Cleve land, only the Democrat* of New York don't want him. The nomination of Cleveland would simply mean the destruction of the Democratic organization as it now exists in the Mate of New York. In every victory we have achieved in the State, Fairchilu and his crowd have been against us. I think now in this convention the opinion of the people who -led the party In the victories should be respected, as they certainly know the condition in our State. CONTESTING DELEGATIONS. The Anti-Snap Delegates Will Claim Recognition From the Convention. Chicago, June 17.— The delegates elected by the Syracuse convention will ask recogni tion as the rightful representatives of the Democracy of New York. There seems to be no difference of opinion among the anti snap delegates who have thus far arrived that they must and will do this. There will, therefore, be a contest and not simply a protest. The delegates from the city of New York and from Brooklyn are generally in favor of a vigorous protest and fight to supplant the present organization, but a number of delegates from other parts of the State are opposed to such a contest, which, they say, must result in a right in the State between the rival organizations. \V. P. Bissell ot Buffalo. Cleveland's former law partner, is here rustling for rover. fin says Cleveland is the logical candidate in view of the nomination of Har rison on a high-tariff platform, and that he is the strongest candidate in New York be cause he can carry the Independent vote, which is very large in that Mat*. He says the office-holders of New York, Suite and city, are the ones who are pushing the can didacy of Hill. INDIANA DIVIDED. An Evident Desire to I'uah Gray for the Flr»t riace. Chicago, June 17.— Indiana delega tion has been somewhat divided on the question of the advisability of pushing Gray's candidacy and a lively time was ex pected at the caucus of that delegation, an effort being made to swing the delegation solid for him. but an Indianapolis special says the friends of Cleveland and Gray have decided to withdraw the latter' 3 candidacy for both first and second places and that an agreement has been secured that he will be given a Cabinet position if Cleveland should be elected. Chilian Tagcart of the Indiana State Centra! Committee has issued a call for a meeting of the Indiana delegation on Mon day morning, when it will be decided how «hey will vote. Taggart admitted that the delegation was somewhat divided as to its policy, but thought a complete understand ing would be reached at Mondny'g meeting. William E. English of Indianapolis, the Vice-Presidential candidate with Hancock, it is believed represents the views of the Cleveland men of Indiana. Ho said he reckoned on 12 votes for Cleveland from Indiana on tho first ballot, and 18 for Gray. On being asked as to the probable outcome. English said that though Cleveland should be the nominee he would not risk a pre diction at this stage of the game. If Cleve land and Gray were both found unavailable he thought the Indiana delegation would support Palmer of Illinois. W. A. Cullop ot Vincpnneß, a Gray dele gate from Indiana, Eaid Gray was a serious candidate, und would be nominated by Senator Voorhees od behalf of the State of Indiana, and that Indiana would stay with him as long as there was a possible chance of hit being nominated. TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN. Most of the Aspirants for the Place Come From Kentucky^ No decision has been reached as to a temporary chairman. The arrival of Carlisle to-day caused a renewal of the talk that Kentucky, would present his name for president. But Carlisle could not bo found. Tho Maryland delegates arrived to-night and announced themselves for Gorman, if he will enter the i ace, with Cleveland as the choice of a majority of the delegates, provided the Senator will not consent to tliti presentation of his name. A formidable competitor of Ad In I E. Stevenson of Illinois for temporary chair man has sprung up id the person of W. C. Owens of Kentucky, who is being hacked by Henry Wntterson. Stevenson has been taking things easy." but this morning he found it necessary to go to work for the place. The selection ol Owens, while not antagonistic to Cleveland, would be less favorable to him than General Stevenson. The principal objection to Stevenson is the fact that he was sent to Congress by the greenbackers some years ago. On the other hand Stevenson is personally very popular. IJirORTAST CONFERENCE. Whitney Call* ft Meeting of the Cleve land Leaden. Chicago, June 17.— Ex-Secretnry of the Navy Whitney, William F. Harrity, ex- Postmaster-General Dickinson and other leading Democrats had a conference this evening at the Richelieu. No details as to the doings were given to the press, but Mr. Falrchild said that since Whitney had ar rived the ox-Secretary would take charge of the Cleveland campaign and the others would act as his lieutenants. Mr. Harrity said the Pennsylvania dele gation is loyal to Cleveland and a solid vote will be cast for him. But If anything^ should occur to prevent his nomination, then Pennsylvania will press the name of Pattison. Many of the leading delegates declare that this conference was the most important event that has yet taken place here. Some go to the extent of asserting em- j phatically that Cleveland was the man whose nomination all would support. The confer ence is attended by representatives from all parts of the country. It is understood that j an effort will be made to 'obtain* from each delegate at once a declaration of his stand ing on the Presidential question. ,"V A Montana Mnn'i Htlalmp. Midori. a, Mont., June 17.— Mayor Ilig glns of this city, a delegate to the Chicago convention, started on horseback because of the railroad washout. About 45 miles east from hers his horse was carried away in a swollen creek, and lliggins narrowly escaped drowning. THE PRINTERS rROTEST. The Chicago Union to Oppose Klniv«i'i Ileoognitlou by the Convention. Chicago, June 17.— The Printers' Union of this city has issued a circular calling a meeting for to-morrow to take steps to pre vent the recognition of Mr. Flower by the national Democratic convention and to re buke him for his duplicity in his treatment of the union printers of New York when he vetoed the State printing office Dill after a majority of both houses adopted it at the behest of the organized craftsmen of the State. While It is distinctly understood that the meeting was to be for Democratic union men the circular asserts it is one the object of which meets with the hearty in dorsement of all union printers of what* ever political inclination. WILL SFPI'OKT TUB TICKET. Tammany Men Who Do Not Indorse Mur- |)liy'« Aoaartlon. New York, June 17.— The Post this after noon prints a lone list of interviews with prominent Tammany men as evidence that Murphy's assertion last night that Tam many is practically unanimous for Hill Is valueless. All the interviewed express the sure belief that Cleveland could carry New York, and they would do their utmost to elect him. John T. Little Jr., a member of ' the Tammany General Committee, said the Democrats in other Mates need have no fear of Tainmanv not supporting Cleveland or any other candidate who may be selected. GORMAN'S BOOM. The Friends of the Maryland Senator Relieve Ilia Chance* Are Good. . Chicago, June 17.— The Gorman move ment received an impetus this afternoon by the arrival of Senator Gorman with a party of Maryland delegates. The Senator flatly • refuted to discuss the political situation. lie said regarding the use of his name, "Nobody Is authorized to say anything for me. 1 cannot help what people will say." Ex-GGvernor Brown of Maryland said there was a strong friendliness for Cleveland in Maryland, but if a reasonable chance was seen to nominate the favorite son of Mary land the people expect the delegation to do its duty; but Maryland has no candidate, and the delegates will counsel with the Democracy of the country upon the quest in of a nominee. In tho meantime it is evident a great deal of work-is being done for Gor man, chietly, perhaps, from the New York headquarters. There are not enough delegations yet on hand to make missionary work worth the trouble of organizing, but it seems to be understood at the Cleveland headquarters that either Gorman, Boies, Morrison, Palmer or Kussell will get the necessary help from Tammany directors to encourage their sup porters to continue the fight. Neither Gor man nor any of his friends will admit he is a candidate, but the fact remains that his name is being discussed on every hand to day. The uncertain attitude of the Illinois delegation Is still subject to speculation, and only one thing seems determined— that the delegation will vote as a unit according ! to its instructions. Upon the question of which candidate is to receive the vote of the State there is a great difference of opinion, but it is manifest there will be consider able dispute over the number of ballots Palmer is to receive before the delegation turns to another love. . > ■ •/, Cdouel William R. L. Morrison has many friends in the Illinois delegation, ami these gentlemen believe an early oppor tunity should be afforded Morrison to de velop his latent strength in the South by trvi&K him the solid support of Illinois on the third or fourth ballot. As the friends ot Morrison and Palmer have long been antagonistic, it is not likely the Palmer people will be willing to vote for Morrison at ail. The Illinois delegation will meet in formally to-aiorrow night to discuss the sit uatluu. BFRINOEK'B CHOICE. Palmer and Bolei Will lie the Ticket He Select*. Fittsuvug, June 17.— The limited express on the Pennsylvania came in to-night in two sections, and was crowded with Demo crats on their way to Chicago. Among the passengers was Congressman Springer, who is straight out for Palmer. It was Palmer against the field. He could not possibly see how Cleveland could be elected. The platform, of course, would be for tariff reform, but not of the Cleveland kind. It wou:d be morn of the Tilden "76" order. Ho thought Boies would make an excellent second choice, and no doubt would carry lowa. He took but little interest in Hill's candid acy. One thing was certain. Palmer would not take the second place. Hi* posi tion iv the Senate is of more value in every waf. pelegate-at-large O'Donnell of Colorado said it would be neither Cleveland nor Hill. Ck-velaud hud killed himself on the silver expressions, and he did not think when the convention opened tno uaine of Hill would be mentioned^ KIOT IN SPAIN. Dissatisfied Spectators at a Bull-Fight Create a Disturbance. Mahhid, Juno 17.— At a bull-fight at Linares yesterday the crowd became dis satisfied with the sport and pelted the Mayor and the buil-fisihters with bottles, sticks and dirt. They then burst Into the arena, where an infuriated bull charged upon them, tossing them right and left. One person was killed and a number seri ously hurt. The Mayor ordered the civil guard to clear the ring, but the guard re lumed and the crowd chased the Mayor to the police headquarters and smashed the windows and doors. The Mayor escaped and fled to the barracks, where he was safe, tut the rioting continued in other parts of the town until nightfall. French Crop Prospects. Paris, June 17.— The Journal dcs Debats declares that the adverse harvest reports are exaggerated, it says the yield of wneat will be vastly superior to the crop of 1891, but b-irley and oats have suffered severely. There has been a fall of 50 francs to 100 francs per head in the price of stock, due to fears of a scarcity of forage. Fmin Faiha Not Dead.

Epeclal to The Morning Call. PmEOTX, Ariz., June 17.— Tempe, nine miles from here, is aroused over the myste rious murder of Ed Radcliffe and the sub sequent action of a Coroner's jury. Yester day morning Radcliffe was found dead on the floor of Harry Bernard's dancing-hall in Upper Tempe. lie had died on hi back, with his legs drawn up In apparent agony. One arm was outstretched, and the other was on his breast. His face was almost concealed by a large slouch hat, and looked black, despite the pallid hues of dissolution. The Mexican who discovered the corpse notified Justice For see, who, with the assistance of Con stable Gallardo, summoned a Coroner's jury. Several witnesses were examined, but none on oath, and the jury returned a verdict that "'The deceased had come to bis denth from natural cause?, but under the existing circumstances it was supposed from alcoholism." His body was without preparation placed in a rough box and about 3 p. m. taken to the cemetery and burled. Many of the residents were not satisfied, however, and Deputy District Attorney iitn-haw telephoned from Phoenix that * new jury be summoned and the body disiuterre<l. A post-mortem examination was made which showed that death was caused by three blows of a blunt instrument on the back part of the head. Under the skull was found clotted blood and the left lung wns heavily congested. The inquest showed that the deceased had been seen last about 12 o'clock the niijht previous during adance in the hall where he met his death. The second jury found "that the deceased came to his death from blows on the head by means of some instrument In the hands of parties unknown." No theory for the murder has been ad vanced and the whole affair is wrapped in mystery. Kadcllffe was 58 years old, a native of Hauuver, Germany, and was exiled for participation in the Schleswip-Holstem troubles of 1843. He served in the Confed erate army and had resided in Arizona for 30 years, lie was n fluent speaker of Spanish, French, German, English and Indian dia lects, and was of unimpeachable character.

The Civil SerTlce Case. The Democratic majority of the House Committee on Civil Service Reform have agreed upon a report- of the results of the investigation of the I alleged violation of the civil service law at Baltimore. It says it is singular that the Postmaster-General should have Indorsed j tin) Idea that men charged with a violation of the civil service law are entitled to notice before an inquiry as to their guilt-is entered upon, and also to the assistance of counsel in the investigation. The examination of the testimony taken by the inspectors', and upon which the Postmaster-General claims to have acted, shows that neither their con clusions nor his are supported by the state* ments of the parties implicated. On the contrary, testimony reported by the inspectors confirms and corroborates that taken by the Civil Service Commission, and the severe strictures and criticisms which the inspectors passed upon the work of Commissioner Roosevelt in making his Investigation are not borne out by the facts as stated by the witnesses. The report continuing, says: "The re plies of the Postmaster-General to the many questions propounded by your committee were evasive and utterly inconsistent with the evidence on which he claims to have acted." Further it says: "The garbled statement of the evidence taken before the inspectors as furnished by the Postmaster- General shows the desperate straits to which he was driven in his attempt to sus tain the action of the inspector and him self." The report concludes: "We therefore find that the report of tho Civil Service Commission recommending the removal of certain employes In the Postoftiee at Balti more is well founded; that the Baltimore Postmaster has not removed any of these parties substantially by the direction of the Postmaster-General; that the report of the Inspectors upon which they were retained is unsupported by the eviJence, and indi cates either a complete ignorance of the provisions of the civil service law or a de termination that in this particular case a violation should not be punished."

Coiyiigbted, 1E92, by the New York Associate* Tress. London*, June 17— Another effort to get the Government to fix the exact date of tho dissolution of Parliament was baffled in the Commons to-night by Balfour's explanation that the business, even if expedited in the House of Lords as in the House of Commons, would not permit of a dissolution before June 29 or 30. — The House of Lords to-night presented a spectacle of courtly splendor, the occasion belne the introduction of the Duke of Yoric as a member of the House of Lords. Gladstonian organs confess that there are difficulties menacing the Liberal chances of success in Gladstone* attitude toward the eight hour and the church disagreement question?, and the open party scope of the woman's suffrage movement.
