LINES CLOSELY DRAWN. The Leaders Counting Up Their Prob able Strength. CROYER CUfEUII STILL FAR AHEAD. Cwßlißatioas of th> Opposition I'nsnTfssfu! — The Anti-Bill Men From lev York Claim Their Scats. Bpeelal to the Morning Caj.i. Chicago. June 18.— While ex-President Grover Cleveland has apparently the best of the fight to far as it has gone, be is very far from having anything liko a walkover. Even his most devoted followers do not figure out more ttian 500 votes for him on the first ballot and that is just 09 short of the number required. Falrchila admits this and Buys they do not hope to win en the first rollcall, and claims that when Cleve land's strength is shown there will ba a great many waverinc delegates who will go over to him in order to be on the winning side. There i«, of course, in every Dven tlon a very lame body of weak-kneed fel lows, who are always on the lookout for the bandwagon to come along and who are always among the tirst to get aboard. They nave no ideas of personal loyalty and their study is to get in on the successful side. That is the class that is being depended upon to nominate Cleveland and it is more than likely that they will succeed. There is no doubt but that the Southern Pacific wants Cleveland, but the question is, will they get him? They want him be cause he has always stood in with the great corporations, East and West, and while they would prefer a Republican who would serve them, they find themselves compelled to make the best of the situation and take Cleveland instead. They are very cunning, those railroad fellows, and showed their bands at Minneapolis in striving to nomi nate JBlaine. They did not want Harrison because he cculd not be used. They had tried him and had found him a man of grim determination, who wanted to do just what fa* considered right. Fortunately they were not able tv control the delegation. Half of It they succeeded in getting, and with that they labored hard, but they lost. Now they have turned to Chicago, and are here for Cleveland. They may get him. CLEVELAND THE FATOUIIE. Dark Horses Nut Likely to Be In the Race. Chicago. June 18.— One hears a great deal of talk about favorite sons and all that sort of thing, but what does it all amount to in the end? The proposition simply reduces itself to a fight between Cleveland and the unorganized field, with the former in the lead. There is just a chance, of course, that some dark horse may come out of the bunch with a rush and be In first as the finish, but it Ss a long shot that It does not occur. Cleveland is too strong for his ambitious rivals, and the chances are that he will win after a strug gle. There are all sorts of booms here, but none of them seems thus far to cut any great figure. Gorman. Gray, Palmer, Bole?, Carlisle, Morrison, Flower, Pattison, Russell and ha!f a dozen more have already inn up their little lightning rods and are waiting patiently for the bolt to strike, but no one believes that it will. Iv the midst of them ail and above them Cleveland towers aloft taller than any, and It is better than even money richt now that he will send them all home as they came. The Hill men, to be sure, are making a treat deal of noise and are trying by every means within their power to make people believe that- they are re.illy in it. but it is alaost a certainty that Hill is as near the nomination now as he will be at any time during the convention. His is a machiue fieht and is, as a consequence, well organ ized, but there is not enough of it to frighten the Cleveland people to any areat extent. Tammany and its heelers, with a few scat tering votes from the S uth and West, is about all there is to the Hill bocm. How they can expect to win with it no one is able to see just now, but they are doing a great deal of shouting und are making Home howl with their cries. TAMMANY'S rO*T!ON. Bill te Ec Dropped If a Deal Can Be 3lade. Chicago, June 18.— Sachem Croker of Tammany Hall is a very undemonstrative man himself as is also Ed Murphy of Troy, but they are doing all they can to encourage their followers to howl for Hill, and the result Is surprising. Tr.ey swaim about the corridors of the Auditorium like so many tees and pounce upen every luckless dele gate that chances along. They surround him on all sides and in the most aggressive tray ply b!m with argumeLts to show that Cleveland, if nominated, could not be elected. They tell him that New York would declare acainst the ex-President with a majority of at least 30,000, and they bring out a formidable array of facts and figures to prove their assertions. Tr*en they turn to Hill an 1 hold him up as the great ex pounder of modern Democracy. The great benefit of his rule iv Now York State is painted in glowing colors. Then they wind up by declartne that if nominated he would sweep the State of New York by 50,000. If the poor delegate is convinced, as is not often the case, he Is taken into camp and placed on exhibition bs aTnan who has seen the errors of his ways. If he proves obsti nate, however, and declines to admit the truth of all he is told they pounce u|>on him like co many tigers and drown him cut with their yells. He is not allowed to argue the question at all, and is howled down as only a Tammany man can howl. There is a grave su ion that there Is Dot much sincerity after all in this continu ous Tammany yell fnr Hill. The shrewdest of the politicians are of the belief that Croker and his followers are mere mer cenaries in the camp of tlie Senator, and, like all hired soldiers are willing to break away when the time romes to any one who will reward them. They will undoubtedly vote for Hill on the first ballot, arid if there is a second rollcall nisg'ii still remain with him ; but there is no doubting the fact that they are already looking around for a ooft place to light whenever the Hill boom col laDses. It is said that if it is <iemonstrated early in the fight that HUI has no chance to succeed, the Tammany gang will throw their strength to Flower and en deavor to push him in an a compromise. There is a scheme of that kind already on foot, and Grover is believed to have a hand In it. They are not going to remain with Hill, If by doing so they would il<*k allow ing the nomination of Cleveland. Their cry is, and has been from the start, "Anything to beat Cleveland." and In this, at least, they are absolutely in earnest. Whether they cau succeed by combining with the forces of any one of the number of the fa vorite sons who are in tlie field, aud by this means bold the requisite one-third aloof from Cleveland for a number of ballots, is just where the shoe pinches. IDE BOIES BOOM. I««i'i Governor Growing In FaTor— Solid With the Hllrer Men. Chicago, June 18.— There is no discount- Ing the Boies boom, although a great many ef the shrewdest politicians claim that it amounts to very little after all. Ju->t the tame, it waxes stronger »n<. grows more proeperous as the days go by. It was just a little bit of a boom at first with a kind of in infantile look about it, but it has grown strong and lusty, and just now is making a great deal of noise. Over nt the Palmer Bouse, where the Boies men have estab lished their her.dquarters, tho lowans have gathered in full force. Nearly every man that one runs against in the corridors of the hotel a Boies boomer, and tiny go at you with an enthusiasm which is admirable. As those fellows *co it, Cleveland is an im possibility. They think tint lie may last two and possib\v threw ballots, but after that they imagine that ha will bR out of it a;,d the field left < peD for their man. Hoi are tln-v willinc to concede that Hill or Pnlnier <r Gorman or Gray stands a ghost of n show in the fight that if) going on, and this they regard as assuring the nomination of Holes. They nro so brim full cf en thusiasm of a contrtgicus kind that they The Sunday Call. keep the crowds in the Hotel in a constant roar. They have pictures of Boies pasted all over the walls wherever then* is a square foot of space to spare, and ti;ey are giving away badge 9 by the thousand. Half the men on the street are parading with lowa badges on the lapels of their coats and sup plementing this show of loyally to the lowa Governor with continuous yells. They are here in great numbers to cheer each other 00, and luive morn argument* on the tips of their tongues why the lightning should strike in their direction thau can bo over looked in a hurry. In the lirst place they claim to look to Tammany for support in the event that it is found that Hill cannot be nomi nated. They are banking a great deal on the fact that Tammany is looking around for somebody to wallop Cleveland, and Boles they say is just the man for the fob. Then, too, they expect a great deal of help from the silver States, and point to the fact that Tom Patterson of Denver, tlie editor of tho Kooky Mountain News, whu leads the delegation from Colorado, is out for Boms. 1 saw Patterson this afternoon in his room at the Paltrier House, and he *pnke with great poaitiveness concerning Cleve land and the money question. "We do not expect," he sail, "that this conven tion will nominate a free c man or adopt a free coinage platform, b;it we do exnect that they will not nomi nate a man i:ke Cleveland, who is the most hidebound of all the gold bogs in either par;y. Harrison is bad enough, but Cleve land is worse. H'M\>uld not carry one side of Colorado. His letter ou the - tion when the bill was pendiug in Conaross SCE.VE IX THE BILL Hi: ID'jl ARTEBS.

It siniDly showed that he was under the tnumbs of a clique of gold stiarks in Wall street, and no oi>e could expect us to support him— we are against him now and will be to the last. One of the most incon sistent things that I have ever seen in all my political experience is the fact that some of the silver districts have instructed for Cleveland. It is simply abominable." THE BALANCE OF POWER. Indiana and the Solid South Feel Their Importance. Chicago, June 18.— Ex- Governor Gray of Indiana is in the fight, and his name will be presented to the convention. This would take away the 30 votes of Indiana, which would otherwise go to Cleveland. The 26 from lowa, given to Boies, is another weakening of the Clevelaud line, and these two, com bined with the 72 votes of New York, which will be cast fur Hil', make a total of 128 from three States, most of which, under other circumstances, would go to the ex- President at the outset. Then, too. the Cleve:aiid men are not so strong In the South as they have endeavored to make the public believe. They are claiming Missouri solid, and are quoting Grif Prather, the National Committeeman from that State, in support of their ass-rtii n. The truth is that Mi-souri is badly divided and there is every reason to believe that not more than half of the delegation wiil vote for Cleve land on the first ballot. Then there is Texas, which Is In about the same position, as are also Alabama and Florida. In fact, a great many of the Southern States are ail "ripped up the back" as between Cleveland and Hill. This is supposed to be largely due to the influence of such men as Henry Watterson, John G. Carlisle. Roger Q. Mills and others of that ilk, who have been unfriendly to Cleveland for some time. Of course, Carlisle claims that he and Mr. Cleveland are on the most friendly term?, and that he is not opposing the ex-Prefident'B nomination, but no one believes it, and there are evidences of his opposition to be found on every side. If Cleveland should happen to be beaton the probabilities are thai it will be largely due to the division r.mong the delegates from the Solid Soutn. They, as in the Republican convention, hold tbe balance of Dower and the result, will depend very largely upon the stßnd which they take. This tl.ey know themselves, and are work iug it to the best advantage. They are not toinc to rush blindly into the ficht of Cleve land or any other man and take the chances of carrying off a portion of prizes after the election, but are going to hold themselves aloof for a time at least for the purposes of making itical bargains. Two or three Cabinet oflicers and a few other induce ments of that kind would probably have great weight in determining their action in the convention. These promises will proba bly have to >>c made in order to secure their votes. The chances are that Cleveland will prove himself about as good a proiniser as any ono in tb« field. THE BILVEIt HEN. They Claim to Hold ih<> Key of tbe Pre»l deDtlal Situation. Chicago, Jane 18.— Iu spite of all tbe op position of the silver men to Cleveland it Is hard to tell what they intend to do. Those who are opposed to them insist that they have no power for good or for evil in the convention ; that if they should succeed in forcing a man upon tbe convcution it would simply be a case of leading a lamb to the slaughter. The assertion is plainly made by the men of the East that no man can hope to win on a silver platform, aud that if the Democrats dare to go before the coun try on that issue they will be hopelessly de feated. Still, the silver men are more than confident to-night, and claim that they hold tbe key to the situation. They insist that they have in the mining and Pacific States 108 votes which they can control, and these they will throw to anybody but Cleveland. First of all, they talir about Boies, whom they point out as a man most likely to meet their views on the financial question, but no one really be lieves that they favor tho Governor. Their scheme evidently is this: They will at tempt at first to stop the nomination of Cleveland, and, if successful, will pick out Gorman and concentrate upon him. Gor man, they point out, has never been actively identified with either siu>, and would in spire tbe confidence of all. They might then hope to be able to slip him in without exciting the surprise of the East, and, if so, would have things pretty much their own way. 'i'o-nlght the silver men bad an Informal conference in Tom Patterson's room, at which were present a dozen representatives from the silver Sta'#s. No action of im portance was taken, cut it was decided tv hold a meeting on Monday, at which nil the delegates of 'tbe mountain . and Pacific Stales will be present. They may not then be ftblo to concentrate upon auy particular candidate fur tue Presidency, but they hope to act in concert upon other questions. At the conference in question there were men of all shades of opinion, aud they will find it hard to agree upon auy line of action. NO UNITY OF ACTION. Tlie Antl-Clevfiland Mon Floundering In Deep Water. Chicago, June 18.— Speaking of the ac tion of the bilver men, it. is in lino with everything that is being done by the anti- Clcvelanditei. They flounder around on all SAX FRANCISCO, SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 19, 1892— SIXTEEN PAGES. sides and do a great deal of talking, but that is about as far as it has gone. There, are too many favorite sons in the race, and they, as a rule, amount ta nothing. If you talk to one, he says, with great etirne-<tties«, that Gormau is the ouly man who can hope to wiu, that unless the son of Maryland is put to the front the Democrats nre hopelessly be.itr-n. He will give his reasons for the faitli that is in him, and when he is done you will know abmt as much as you did before. A ni inent later another man will come along wlio is opposed to Cleveland, and his first words will be that Boies is the one man of the whole lut who stands the least show of election. He will tell you that Gorman conies from the wrong part of the country and once led an auti-union demon stration in Baltimore and was hand and glove with the rebels of that city. Then a man will drift by who will whisper confi dentially that Boles cannot hope to reach because of the fact that he has been a Dem ocrat but nine years. This they say is an unpardonable sin in the eyes of the old timers aud would mean certain defeat at the polls. All this goes to show that there is posi tively no unity of action amon* the men who are battling the ex-President, and, while they may succeed in defeating him for tho nomination, it must be on different lines from the ones on which they are now working. In other words, they must com bine in order to accomplish anything sub stantial, and until they do that they cannot hope to make any headway. The Cleve land furees are too well organized and their lines are too firmly drawn for any specific movement to affect them at this stace of the game, and unless the men who are op 2 them decide to unite opoo some one man they canuot hope to make much head way. THE HILL BEATS. Cleveland Delegates From New York Determined to Claim Thi>m. Chicago, June I s *.— The Clevelnnd men are apt to make one mistake which may cost them dearly. They are determined, so they say, to contest the seats of tlie Bill men from Fork, and if they d<> so it is likely to very bard feelings. The followers of Hill say tOftf if they are knocked out in the convention they will take their medicine with as good a face as pot>Mble under the circumstances, but if they are turned out ami their seats piven to men who are fighting them they cannot ably be exiiectrd to go ba.-k nnd w rk tot the nonnnee. Such a thing, they assert, they would not tolerate for a minute, an i even if Uie Hill delegaft-s w.r.' willing tosubiv.it, they could not hope to hold the eaug in line. The boys who vote in New York would simply refuse to staud any such action, and the result would be that Harrison would have a walkover id the Mate. No later than this afternoon two stout porters carried a great big box up the stairs to the Cleveland headquarters at the Grand Pacific Hotel and deposited it carefully in a corner. It was closely guarded by E. Ellery Anderson, one of the leaders of the anti snapo 'That box contains protests against Hill nnd the snap convention," sail Mr. Ander- B ai ■ ,<<kj names signed to them. It Is the biggest protest that las ever teen presented to any representativo body. The men whose names are <>v tin so rolls are the solid citizens of New Y^rk. It took no great effort on our part to secure these signatures. The voters came volun tarily and wrote their names with alacrity. Their voices will he heard in the conven tion if possible anil at len^t before the com mittee on credentials. We will dhow the convention that the greatest outrage ever perpetrated on American citizens was done at the February meeting of the Hill machine men. We know that he is not the choice of the people of New York aud that Grover Clevelaud I*. Mr. Cleveland is 'Jo Uer cent stronger in New York to-day than he was hi 1888 and he can attract the inde pendent vote, which controls the balauce of power in New York State and which Hill would not receive." Continuing, Mr. Anderson asserted it us . .uii'ii that Cleveland would nave 69o votes on the first ballot nnd that his nomi nation was absolutely assured. Hahky M. Tod. LINES CLOSELY DRAWN. Friends of tha Candidates Counting Ihi-lr Keapective Strength. Chicago, June 18.— The opening of con vention week will rind the lines of battle closely drawn and every candidate seem ingly assured of the exact strength with which he will enter the contest. The chief uncertainty will be as to the action of Illi nois, Indiana and Kentucky. Should the-,8 States brin j: a solid support to Cleveland on the fint ballot there is little doubt that he will receive the two-thirds vote requisite for the nomination. But should the States cast their full strength for n favorite son the probabilities of Cleveland's nomination nu the opening ballot would be very remote in deed. Congressman Sprincer of Illinois is urg ing, in the interest of expediency, the Illi- Dois t!eifti;ut.on to vote for John M. Palmer on the first ballot and continue its efforts on behalf of the Illinois leader until his nomi- Datioo is reached. Jlt-nry Wat'eisun is understood to be laboring with the Ken tucky delegation In the effort to secure a solid vote of the State for Carlisle, and Senator Voorhees of Indiana is making a like demand upon the iloosier State iv be half of Gray. It is orted to-night that the prominent Democratic leaders of these three States are endeavoring to arrauge a coaferenee of delegates at wh cli it will be mutually agte>-d that the nomination of CleTelmnJ is inexpedient, and the 104 votes which he might otherwise receive from these States will be distributed among their favorite sons. The delegations of these three States are practically lrea to act as they please in an emergency, and the great question is, will they abandon Cleveland in the interest of their Western candidates. INDIANA AND KENTUCKY. The Opposition to Cl«r«l«n<t Fostered by YVattersoD and Olhars. CniCAGO, Juno 18.— The conference of the Indiana delegates during the afternoon indicate that Gray cannot possibly secure the unanimous vote of the State on the first ballot, nor. indee 1 until Cleveland has prac tically retired from the race. It appears that Cleveland has about 12 delegates in tho Indiana delegation, who will vote for tho ex-I'resi from the beginning, and de spite the great efforts made to induce them to go with the other 18 men of the delega tion, they ibow no signs of weakening up to the t>resent time. The greatest mystery surrounds tho Ken tucky deletatioij. Tho tacit replies of Henry Wnttersou to nil inquiries afford but little information of what heaii'ilu*. colleagues intend to do. Carlisle has gone to the extent of saying that he views wiib gravity the situation that would ln> pre ecutcd by the nomination of Cleveland, but he does not go so far as to express the o inion that defeat would be the penalty of Cleveland's nomination. .Nodoubt, with Carlisle out of the race, fully one-half of the Kentucky delegates are disposed to favor Cleveland. There are many who believe that if tlie 48 votes cf Illinois should be cast for Cleveland ou tlie first ballot it would result in such enthu siasm as to effect his nomination. For this reason, every resource known to modern politics is being brought to bear by the dif ferent factions to control or Influence this delegation. Two booms which blossomed to-day are causing considerable anxiety to the Cleveland leaders to-night— the Gorman and the Morrison booms— and there is do doubt that the friends of both gentle men are laboring assiduously to bring them into the contest as compromise candidates. Gorman, ot course, could get the solid vote of the Maryland delegation and it is assumed that he would receive substantial support from various Southern delegations, principally Kentucky, Arkan sas and Texas. The proposition to vot« for Palmer whenever the nomination of Cleve land appears inexpedient finds no particular opposition to-night from the Morrison people and probably the great tariff re former will only be pushed into the contest as a dark horse after Clevelaud has retired and Palmer ha 9 received the loyal support of the Illinois delegation for several ballots. TO BEAT CLEVELAND. Tammany and Colorado Determined to Defeatftlie Ex-Pre»lden t. CHICAGO, May 18.— The Tammany or ganization uf New York stands as an im passables phinx, warning by its very attitude the Democracy of the nation against the se lection of a Presidential candidate from the Empire State. The much-hoped-for har mony between the two New York factions Knows no s!t;n of realization, aud even the most sanguine Cleveland enthusiasts aro forced to admit that the utterance of the Tamu.any leaders do not give any assurance that they will support the Presidential ticket in the event oi Cleveland's nomination. It is this particular situation in the great piv ctal State which causes the anti-Cleveland people to cry out apniust tho expediency of the ex-President's renoniination/but in view of the recent decision of the Supreme Court of Michigan on the electoral law, and tlio fact that the Democrats of Kansas will probably indorso the People's ticket, the Cleveland admirers say be can be elected Without the Empire State. "The Colorado delegation will not, under any contingency, vote for Cleveland," said ex-Senator Thomas Pntterson of Colorado to-night. " The reason is his unreasonable and unrelenting enn.ity to free coinage. To favor free coinage and Cleveland is a politi cal paradox 1 cannot understand. The mountain delegates want n candidate whom they have reason to know will not veto a free coiunee law if Congress enacts one. If Cleveland is nominated, he will not only lose New York, but almost certainly several Southern State?, owing to the alliances and the dee p frellne on the coinage question. I believe the nomination of Cleveland will Ios« the Democracy not only the Presidency but the next Houso of Representatives." WBITRKT*! WOKK. Cleveland* Field Minimi Endeavoring to Iteduce the Opposition. Chicago, June 18.— The arrival of the Hon. WilliHtn C. Whitney, ex-Secretary of the Navy under Cleveland, was marked by more methodical work for Cleveland. One evidence of the work of the Cleveland men was shown to-day in the efforts that are being made to reduce the size of the field to be entered against tho lender. In each State where there is a talk cf favorite sons the Cleveland men will be put to work to pre vent the nomination of dark horses. This morning a letter was received by James 11. Echols, tbe delegate from the Eighth Illinois District, from Morrison, which the Cleve land men aro using to keep Illinois in line for thoex-Prosident. It said: "1 don't see that we can do anything except to follow out the line of action indicated by the pro ceedings of our State convention aud let the consequences take care of themselves. Any thing else must lead to recrimination aud division." The Michigan delegation arrived during the day and came out strongly for Cleve land. A number of West Virginian dele gates also put in nn appearance, and, unless Gorman is placed in nomination, it is pre dicted that Cleveland will get all tlm votes of that State except perhaps two. Pennsyl vania, New Jersey and Delaware are re garded a<* Cleveland fni-tors to be depended ou at all times. It is to tho South that the Cleyeiond leaders look with apprehension. The Palmer boom received an impetus to day by the arrival of Congressman Snrin<tT and his declarations that Cleveland's nonu n.ition would be political suicide and it Is the duty of tlie Illinois delegation to sui> l>ort Palmer from the veiy owning of the convention. Springer said: "If Cleveland Is nominated it will be necessary t» re organize the Democratic party in New York. To discard the organization which nominated and elected TiliJen, which nomi nated Cleveland twien and once carried the State for him for President; which nomi nated aud elected him Governor, and which lias now M-yn successive and signal vic tories to its credit in that State, would be an act of political suicide. 1 cannot believe this national convention will do it." At the meeting of the Indiana delegation to-day fur the purpose of organization the Gray men endeavored to iectire the en forcement of the unit rule, and forced a test vote on a motion to that effect. Tlie result was a tie— ls to 15— the two doubtful delegates, Cass of Valparaiso and Houston' of Bedlord, voting with the Cleveland men. The matter was then dropped, but the con test will bo resumed on Monday. The bub-committee en temporary organi zation held a meeting to-day, but did not decide on the temporary chairman. The decu ion will be made at the meeting on Monday. Owens of Kentucky and btevou son of Illinois continuo in the front rank as probabilities for the office, with some men tion of Wilson of West Virginia. Chairman Kairchild of New York of the contesting delegation has written a letter to Calvin S. Brice, chairman of the National Committee, demanding suats for th* dele gates and alternates selected by the Syra cuse convention. This is the first formal stop to contest tho right of the regular dele gation to seats. WESTEKN DELEGATES. A Meeting That Carries Small Comfort to UriiTer <lrv«l<i)il. Chicago, June 18.— The Western dele gates tiave taken steps that may have an important bearing upon the result of the convention. To-night Representatives of the trans-Mississippi States, more especially of those interested in the free-silver ques tion, met at the I'almer House for the pur pose of deciding upon some action whereby the West must be recognized as a factor in the Presidential struggle. After « confer ence, it was decided to hold a further meet ing to-morrow, and then fo arrnnge a meet ing in which nil the Western delegates would take part on Mouday. Tha exact in tentions of tho delegates were not declared,, but it Is freely stated that nolbtaf could be expected for that Terrltury from Cleveland, aud its representatives did not intend plac ing him iv a position where he could grant or refuse any request made. The story that Colorado would support Boies on all ballots is deni'Xl it the Colorado headquarters. Th« delegation is favorable to Hill, and after Hill German. Kansas Cnv, June 18.— Ttie Idaho dele gation to the Democrat!.- convention passed through here to-day on its way to Chicago. The delegates said they were unauimously in favor of some frec-coinaue Democrat. They rather liked Gorman, but were not decided for which candidate they would vote. MISSOCKI MIXED. Nothing Certain, but the State Fayom Cleveland. Chicago, June 18 —The situation in the Missouri delegation is badly complicated, first as to instructions and second as to national conimitteemen. Delcgate-at-large C. C. Moffitt said to-night that the delega tion would vote for Cleveland. Governor Francis of Missouri, who is in the city, says he can safely say that five sixtths of the people of the Mis souri Democratic party favor Cleveland as lone as he is in the tight. Said the Governor: "For one, I put my trust tn him because I'm certain that if he be lieved he cuuid nut cany New York he vi -..hi be the lirst himself to withdraw bis name from the convention. Cleveland's attitude says to tho Democracy of the United States as plainly as though he put it in *orus, '1 can lead the party to victory in November.' His candidacy itself is a personal pledge of his private belief, and we n» Mis.vnui take it as sufficient guar antee H9 to the expediency of nominating him." HILL ON SILVEK. The Publication of a Letter Written Last December. Topkka, Kans., June 18.— Charles K. Holliday Jr., proprietor of the Knnsns Dem < crar, makes public a letter from Senator I). B. Hill, written in December last, while he was Governor of New York State. Hill, ammg other things, says: "My faith is unmistakable in the solid common-sense of our fellow-countrymen who well know the Democratic party at the present time is tho sole efficient instrument for tax and monetary reform. They will not commit their interests to the Republican party, which has j.ist made "-onie reformsour supreme necessity. The Democratic party mitfht as well commit suicide as to shirk either duty; nor will it betray the peo ple* trust by allotting the executive power to any innn whose views nre similar to the views of President Bar and who is pltdurd like him to block every approach to free bimetallic coinage, li is k scandalous misuse ot executive power to employ tbe veto in preventing remedial legislation from beiu*; carefully planued and passed, wben 60 great a majority of the pei ule's representatives have been elected expressly for that wry wtrk. to repeal the Sherman silver l»w and promote a return to free bimetallic coinage. I am indignant at the rapacity of the gold munometaliists, so reckless both of .silence ninl public opinion. Free bimetallic coinage is ti.e da rn nn<l of the vuit majority of the American people. No wonder it navo to the United States a parity of the silver dollar and gold dollar for to years. Free bimetallic coin age is the la«t work of monetary science. To • it tafely, wisely and finally is the mission of the Democratic parly." EFFECT OF THE LETTEK. Believed to Hare Been *i>ruuj* to Aid Hl* Nomination. Chicago, June 18.— A rumor was currpnt early this evening that Senator Hill had arrived in this city on the Erie train, which was due in this city at 8:00 o'clock, but was several hours late. His friends, however, scout the idea, and say that he is not coin ing. Hill's silver bombshell, if that was what his Topeka letter was intended to be, did not exactly startle any element of the Democracy in Chicago. Tiie nptnion was general that the publication of the at thi* time, lust before the assembling of the convention, was, if not directly prouii'tod by the Senator, ut least with his full knowledge and consent. There was unanimity as to one phase of the matt«r, that the object was to help Hill wit! i tho Western and Southern votes. Cleveland's friends were lucliued to treat the letter scornfully. Lieutenant-Goveruor Sneehan at the Tam many headquarters was extremely cautious in discussing thh letter. Sheehan declined to even so far commit himself hs to express an opinion whether or not it would gain Hill any vote? in the convention. At the silver headquarters the reading of the letter caused elation. National Comniitteeman Thomas of Denver, said: "It coes further than anything yet said by any Presidential aspirant, and mnkes it more certain than evt-r that Colorado's votes at leabt will not go to Cleveland." OniO DELEGATION DIVIDED. Campbell Experts a I arc* Vote— Clera- land and tha M new o ni)n. Chicago, June I&— Ex-Governor Camp bell of Ohio arrived to-night, ami when questioned as to the situation of the Ohio delegation, said that one-third of the dele gation are for Cleveland to the doath. One third favors him if New York will support him, nnd one-third is against bis. The subject of a favorite son h not to be dis cussed unless Cleveland is beaten. Ex-Secretiry Whitney, in an interview of some length, stated that the opposition to Cleveland is not so much opposition io the ex-President as it is to the independent vote that follows him. He thinks that grave in ja^tice is done in ideutifyingCleveland with mugwump methods as tnoiuh be was not a gcod party man. Whitney cited figures to show that the vote for Cleveland whs steadily increasing *r.eh time from 1882 to Hiid that Hill got less voles than Cleveland, Cook or Junes whan on the ticket with either. STILL UNDECIDED. The Illinois Delegation Declines to £i- press Its I'rt-forence. Chicago, June 18— The Illinois delega tion organized to-night by electing Hon. A. E. Stevenson, delegate-at-large, as chair man of the delegation. The Presidential question was dtscussed only to tho extent of declaring that the sentiment of the dolo gatloa was that no formal expression as to the preferences would be given at such a distant period before the convention. The sentiment of the delegation seems to favor voting for Cleveland on the first and pos sibly on subsequent ballots. A member of tho executive committee of the Syracuse delegation to-nijlit gave out a statement claiming that Cleveland had 586 votes, or only 13 short of tho necessary two-thirds. He took for a basis of calculation, the vote of 4CI given by the anti-Cleveland men, and added the figures from other States, which, he asserted, was the result of a careful can vahs. CALIFORNIA FOR CLEVELAND. Johu Bryion of loi Angelas Strongly F»Tori tha Kx-Prefident. Chicago, June 18.— Johu Bryson from Lcs Angoles, Cal., nu alternate-at-large from the State, has arrived in advance cf other members of the delegation. "Cali fornia is for Cleveland." be said, "and as far as I know w« have no second choice. Oue of the delegates-at-large, J. V. Cole man, from San Francisco, is iv Paris be cause of the illuess of his mother, aud iirob ably I will ko in us a delegate. Iv case Ido Cleveland will certainly have my vote. If I do not go in, the man who does will, with the others in the dele gation, vote for the ex-President. In case however, Cleveland's norcmatlon should prove impracticable, it would be a question bow the votes of the State would be cast. Gorman is a strong man in the East aud Boies has a lareo following in the West, while us for Carlisle, if he only liv«d west of the river he would have my vote." A PROMISING CANDIDATE. Whitney I.oy .I ty to O!«»elmul Mnj Help Ills Owu ri ll||ll|> New Yokk, June IS.— Tlio Post's Chicago special snys: Wiiiiam C. Whitney, by his unequivocal withdrawal from the rnco in loyalty to Cleveland, has put him self where he will command a great deal oi iufluenco In the coming convention. By many who had considered him a Drettv promising dark horse he is now regarded as the man who holds the key to tho situation in his State. There is a general idea that bains personally poDular in -both factious he will be able to lix up a ha-n of compro mise, when the proper time coined, to which all will agree, unless it will bo a few chronic -oreheuds who would relume to L>« reconciled to anybody on ony bisls short of absolute purchase. Nobody looks to see MurpLy and Sbeehan won over, but neither does any one la his senses expect to see the whole Democratic party of th« United States deliberately wreck itself for the satisfaction of these two professional strikers. The Evening World's Chicago spechl says: Except at Hill headquarters, the popular gossip about the hotels to-day all points to Cleveland as the coming man. Hill managers concede that Cleveland has now at least 4tis votes among the delegates, while his friends put his strength above 500, not counting the Illinois, Indiana ami lowa delegates. To-day both Illinois and Indiana are claimed for Cleveland, although the Utter State is regarded as very uncer tain. DEPEff AND THE FKESIDENT. Report That He Was Offered Blalue's I'lace I'ufounded. Washington", June 18.— Chauncey M. Depew. who is generally regarded as Mr. biaine's most probable successor in the Sec retaryship of State, by invitation of the President took luncheon at the White House this afternoon. The President received him most cordially. It is understood the Presi dent 6trongly urged him to assume charge of the State Department and it is stated th;il Dopew requested time to consider the proposition. It is learned to-night that the vacancy in the State Department was referred to only incidentally and that the conversation be tween the President and Depew related almost solely to the management of the campaign. A gentleman an intimate terms with Depew said to-uighl that it was absurd to suppose that Depew would sacrifico his important business interests lor a Federal office, no matter how high it might be. Republican National Committee. Dcs Moixe«, June 18.— As there seems to bo a misunderstanding as to the time and place of ibo meeting of the Republican National Committee to effect a permanent orcanization the Associated Press is author ized by Mr. Clarkson, the temporary chair man, to say that the meeting will be held in Washington at the Arlington Ho.el on Mon day, June 27, beginning at 11 o'clock a. at Flower for mil. Chicago, June 18. — Governor Flower of New York arrived to-night. He stated briefly that he whs here to support and work for the nomination of Bill. He said that the New York delegation had no criticism to pass upon other candidates, but are united iv tl;e conviction that Hill can carry New York and other doubtful States. EMMONS BLAINE DEAD. The Son of Ex-Secretary Blame Passes Away in Chicago. Chicago, June 18.— Emmons Blame, the second son of ex-Secretary Blame, died shortly before noon to-day of blood poison ing, the result of iiitl.iiiMnut.ion of the bowels. The fact of his death was con cealed for some time, the object being to reach his father with the news in a less start ling manner than the public announcement. Etiorts to get telegraphic communication with him failed, however, and at 12:15 o'clock the news became public. It was only a quarter of mi hour before the fatal end came that even an* intimation that young Blame was iii a dangerous condition was made known, and then only to a tew of his most Intimate friends. At the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad headquarters in this city his associates were only aware that he was ill and had been so for several days. Young Blame was a notable figure in the exciting scenes in connection with his father's Presidential candidacy at Minne apolis, and took his father's defeat greatly to heart. He was ooutined to hi* bed short ly after his return from the north, and it is thought possible the strain and excitement at Minneapolis, followed by the keen disap pointment of the outcome, had not a little to do with the prostration ensuing. Death occurred in the home of Emmons Blame's father-in-law, Cyru« 11. McCor mick. Only his wife, son and Mrs. McCer mick were present. Death came so sud denly them was not time to summon the other members of the family, Strenuous efforts were made during the night and morning to get a message to Hon. James Q. Blame and wife, who are at Bar Harbor, Me., tellinz them of their son's critical con dition, but the telegraph companies were unable to get the message through. A mem ber of the McCormick family, explaining why the information of young Blame's death was withheld, said: "1 feared it would be a death blow to them and all. the members of the Blame family to receive the dreadful news without Dreparation." Emmons Blame was vice-president of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company. Ho okiiio to Chicago recently to take charge of us Western interests. His wedding in New York to Miss Anita McCormick, daughter of the great reaper manufacturer, waa a %t i lai event of the first magnitude. WASHINGTON, June 18.— The announce ment of thedeatli of Emiuons Blaiue created a profound sensation heie. The expres sions of sympathy for Mr. aud Mrs. Blaiue are universal. Messages of condolence were sent to the stricken family. The President, when notified of tho death, was deeply moved. Soun after hearing of the death of Em nions Blame, the President sent a telegram to Mr. and Mrs. Blaiue expressing his deep sense if sympathy for them in their afflic tion. The members of the Cabinet also sent dispatches of condolence. Bak Harbor, Me., Juue 18.— The news of Kuimnns Blame's death reached ex-Sec retnry Blame at Stauwood a little after noon. Tlie family is greaily prostrated by grief. Blame left for Chicago on the 3 o'clock train this afternoon. Tlie news of the illuess of his son came too late for de parture by the 11 o'clock train this morning. The only occupants of the Blame summer homo to-night are the Co^pinsfer boys and the servant?. The first intimation that Kminor.s Blame was ill enme this rrorning in a telegram slating that he was ill on Wednesday but was cut Thursday. This was followed shortly by a message saying that he was dangerously ill. About noon the third dispatch was received, siv inc he was growing worse, and the doctors said unless tbere was a change In 24 hours there would be no hope. Upon the receipt of this preparations were made to leave on t'.ie first train. Between 1 and 2 o'clock this atternoon came the word of his death. Mrs. Blame whs frantic with grief, and the whole family was prostrated. Nearly half an hour before the ferry steamer wus to leave, tho ex-Secretary, accompanied by Mrs. Blame ami Miss Uattle Blame, arrived at tbe wharf. The whole party seemed overwhelmed with sorrow. Mr. Blame was very pale, ami Mrs. Blame, who leaned upon his arm, save way to her sorrow, sobbing aud moanum aloud. Ths party took sents in the piot-house as the boat pulled out. Mr. Blaiue sat with bowed head and bis hat pulled over his eyes. Tho party will be joined In Now York by Mrs. Dwnrosch, and will go directly through to Chicago. No plans for the future had been decided upon up to the time of tliair departure. Augusta, Me., June 18.— The news of Eiiimon* Biaine's death created the pro fuunde3t sorrow here, his native city. A sail group met the Pullman train when it arrived in this city, nnd the few friends who went into the car to express sympathy reported that Mr. Blame appeared to bear up well physically under his great sorrow, but seemed scarcely able to realize that his son had really passed away. Strike in the Minnesota Iron Mines. Minneapolis, June 18.— A special to the Journal from Duluth says: At tlie Minne sota iron mine.-, near Tower, 1400 men arc on a strike, and the mining shafts are filling with water. The atnkeis have possession of tho engines and pump* and nre intoxi cnted nnd ugly. Thursday 300 Finlunders laid off without permission aud got drunk. They were discharged and a strike is the result.

A CLOSE FLMSH WITH MAJOR DO3IO. The Race Bnn in the Mud and Witnessed bj 2>>,000 Persons— The Winner Receives an $18,000 Parse. Special to The Mobnjno Call. Nkw York. June IS.— The great Sub urban handicap race at Sheepshead liny, Long island, to-day, wns a grand race. Twenty-live thousand people were present, and although the sky was very threatening but little rain fell. Despite yesterday's heavy rain the track was fast, and the bookmakers were loaded down with money when the race was called. - Y» X All the Suburban candidates bad been sivcu their usual iiiorniuu gallops and appeared in fine condition. The horses that lined up before Starter Rowe with their jockeys, weights and betting odds were: Pessara (Taral), 4 to 1, 115 pounds; Major Domo (Latubley), 4 to 1, 115; Picnicker (Mnynard), 20 to 1, 117; LoeaiiHtchee (Hamilton) 10 to l, K>2; Kussell (Llttlefield), 20 to 1, 116; Tournament (Narvaez) 20 to 1. 112; ilis Highness (Murphy) 3 to 1,11-; Poet Scout (Si turns) 12 to 1, 117; Kaceland (FUxpatriek) 8 to 1, 124; Montaua (Garrison) 11 to 5, 115; Lamplighter (.Bergen) 12 to 1, 104. By this time every available space was occupied by a pushing, jostling, good natured crowd, hurrying from the book makers' booths to obtain advantageous positions to witness the greatest race of the year. Two-thirds of them carried the paste board tickets of the bookmakers, represent ing their opinion as to the winner. Xeck3 wera crnued, field glasses were given an extra polish as the handsome thoroughbreds pranced and curvetted upon the stretch to the startiug point. There were four false start*, but finally they were gotten off in pood style. Major Donio got away first, Russell next, then Montana, Poet Scout, Ilis Ilighnoas and Locohatchee. Turning into the backstretch, Montana was next to last, but Garrison didn't be come disheartened. In the middle of the stretch be made his first move up and rr.shed up to the tail c: d of the bunch as if shot out of a cannou. Langleyletgo of Major Donio and the latter increased his lead to five lenctbs; but coming into the. stretch Garrison settled down to work. With i nly a sixteenth of a mile to the finish Major Dorao had still half a length the best ol It, but Garrison using his best efforts Mon tana passed the line first, with Major Domo a head behind. Lamplighter finished right behind Major Domo, and with another stride would have beou first The mile and a quartor was covered In 2:07 2-5, the fractions being: quarter, 24 seconds; half, 491-5 spconds; three-quar ters, 1:153-5; mile, 1:403-5; mile and an eighth, 1:54 1-5; mile and a quarter, 2:07 2-5. The winners' share of the rich prize was £18,000; second, S5000; tnird, $2000.

Montann, the winner of the great race yesterday, is a bay four-year-old horse by Ban Fox out of imported QneeD, and has been the fancy of many of the clever division since the opening of the winter books, as much as 40 to 1 having been bet against him. The wonderful tipping of Tae Call was the subject of much favor able comment in the crowded Oakland poolrooms yesterday, the winner, Montann, being placed first, while Major Domo, who ran into the place, was selected to get a chalk mark. It is said that Marcus Daly had over 820,000 bet on his horse, and that nearly all the future books in the East are heavy losers. In fact most of them, as stated in The Call ou Friday, have had "full" marked opposite his name on the lists. There is no doubt that it is one of the great est coups ever effected m the American turf, and '.he cleverness in keeping t ho horse's performances from being tooted until after all the stable money was in is remarkable. As soon, however, as their eyes were opened the talent tried to rush the bookmakers, but found that they had been forestalled, and the reply they invari ably got in answer to speculative inquiries was, "Done with Montana." -tana started in nine races last year as a three-year-old, winning only one race — the rich Lnrillard stakes at Moomoath— carryinn 122 pouuds over 1% miles in 2:25, with Murphy in the sadtll**, neatlng Stratli njeith, Pcs-ara, Reckon, Warpath, Klldeer aud Foxford at weight for ace. lie won the only race lie started In this year on Monday last in a gallop, beating a gnnd field of horses over nine furlongs in 1:53%. Long before trie time fur the rac« to be run the Oakland poolruoms were cuock-ablock yesterday, and it was a cas* o[ tight to get near the window. Tournament was well played, with Narvaez ui>, and when Charlie Kiugsley's stentorian voice announced that he was second at the quarter nnd again at the half the crowd seemed to co frantic, lie was never iieard of afterward, and Moutan i, tliH favorite, seemed to suit the majority, as hats were thrown up and loud cheering burst forth when lie was Announced as the winner, lie is a great horse, and nearly all the prominent local turfites won hatfuls of money. Mosc Gunst said: "1 have made four big winning bets in New York, and they must t'ink me a demon for calling the turn. 1 backed Filz-simmons to beat Maher, Jackson to beat Slnvin, Judge Morrow to win the Brooklyn, and Montana for to-day's race." Al Hall and O. Bmunh, a couple of local turf reporter?, Louis Whitlnsr, P. Itvitn, Captain Potter nud Johnny iltnn phne-« were all in the know with the "good thing." Marcus Daly will probably buy another copper mine, and will certainly have to hire a couple of able-bodied men to cash his tickets and collect his money.
