ST. PAUL , Minn. , Juno 9. The Hon.
Theodore RoosoveU , of Now York , apont
Sunday in , St. Paul , on his way to hia
Montana ranch. Speaking of the issues ot
the Chicago convention , Mr. Roosevelt
said : "Tha platform is an admirable one ,
as strong as the party bis had since the
war. " Ho ( ays : "It will gain thousands
of rotcsall over tho'country. Whether re
publican or independent , conservative
judgment must endorse it heartily. The
democratic party must follow , in the
main , our platform , or pivo up the fight.
I did not favor either Blaine or Arthur ,
Aside from his own strength of 330 odd
votes that would stick to him through
thick and thin the "Plumed Knight"
was the second choice of two-thirds of
the remaining delegates. As soon as
they saw the nomination of their candi
date was impossible , and Blaino'a nomi
nation probable , they flocked to him in a
body. This is why no combination
against Blaine was possible. Had I not
been so positively for Edmunds , I don't
know nut what I would have been carried
away myself by the contagion , and found
myself throwing up my hand for Blaine.
Blaine is the rhoice of two-thirds of the
rank and file of the party. I shall bolt
the nomination by no means. I have no
peiaonal objection to Blaine. I think you
will find that there will be no fatal dis
affection. * I believe
Ho will sweep the west and Ohio , am
will carry all New England. I have been
called a reformer , bus I am a republican.
It is too early to speak of New York. Nc
one to-day can tell how that state will
vote. I do not think it impossible for
Blaine to carry it. I do not believe there
will bo an independent candidate. Those
who will not vote the republican tickel
will stay away from the polls. As to the
bolt of The New York Times , i am in
ohned to think it would support eitho :
Cleveland or Doraheimer , if nominated
by the democrats. "
CHICAGO , Juno 9. The local commit
tee of arrangements to prepare for tbo
national democratic convention have di
rected an architect to prepare plans for
the rearrangement of the convention hal
by which the seating capacity will bo enlarged
larged DO as to admit 20,000 people. The
accommodations for the press will also
bo enlarged. Tim local managers confi
dentiy expect a larger outside attendance
than was the case with the republican
convention , in democratic political clutu
from all pirta of the country have an
nouucud their intention to bo present.

WASHINGTON , June 9 The ways ant
\ \ means committee has been considering
the question of adjournment. It has no
reached any deGnito conclusions , but wil
probably report a resolution providing ,
lor a'Jjournment July 1. The plan seotni
to bo to adjourn congress fur a couple of
days before the meeting of the democrat
ic convention. Whether it will bu suc
cessful in very doubtful. The indications
euum to bo against it. It is doubtful , in
deed , whether congress could , if it wuntet
to , get through iu nocessiry work by
thut time.
h likely to create H good deal of disciusion
in the hiU3u and in the senate too. if the
IIOUEO should strike out the suctions mak
ing large appropriations for now vessels
and the river and harbor bill will con-
eumo considerable tiinn ; as it is not likely
to go through iJiu houeo before the mid-
dloof the present month , it must bo some
timoyot before it can bucomo a luvr. Ihu
thing most likely tocauso a longer ecssioi
than tlwt suggested by the ways and
. moans committee , however , is that it i
.probable that the republicans of the
senate will not consent to udjournmon
until ufcor the democratic convention
Thoto is already an inclination on the
part of the democrats to
of the republican candidates , and prepare
ammunition for the coming campaign
and if this is carried out the republican !
will never consent to adjournment unti
they have had BiinUar opportunities re
garding the democratic candidates. " II
they do thw , " said Senator Butler , of
South Carolina , fiptmkiug of the prospecti
of such action , " if they do this , woshal
probably bo here until September. Any
action of that sort on the part of 'ho
senate would precipitate a general pnliti
cal diseuijioji , and there is no lulling
when that would end , "
The series of Rummer and early ful
elections opened in Oregon include
not less than nine states. Alabama
votes on the 4th for governor nnd state
iflicors ; Tennessee follows on August
th , Arkansas on September lit , and
Torment one day later. Then comes the
nero significant election in Maine on
September 8th , with an interesting vote
on the constitutional prohibition of the
iquor trnflic. Georgia will elect a gov
ernor on October 1st ; on October 14th
ho Ohio nnd West Virginia elections
occur. Political interest of the series
culminating in Ohio , where 21 congress-
nen will bo chosen and minor slnto ofli-
oers hotly contested in the traditional
belief that the result may potently in-
luonco party features in the presidential
ilection three weeks later.

WAHHINOTON , Juno 7. There w s
irobably not a city in the country ns
[ uiot ns Washington was yostordny over
ho news from Chicago All through the
week , In fact , there has boon but little
enthusiasm shown in the direction of any
candidate hero , and if there has boon any
excitement it has boon confined to the
ircasts of the presidential candidates ,
who were thick enough hero , to bo suro.
[ ho tn o news centres were the Western
Jnion telegraph ollico opposite the treas
ury and the oflico of the secretary of the
senate { at the capital , but at no
; imo wcro cither of those localities alarm-
ngly crowded. There were a largo num
ber of private stations , the newspaper
offices all had their bulletins and the can
didates each had a private wire run to
their houses , so this scattered the in
formation from Chicago a little more
This is decidedly an "administration"
town , so the nomination of Blaine did not
: ako very well. It was , in fact , received
in marked silence and a great many fel
lows' faces fell a foot at the prospect of
osing clerkships on a change of cabinet
officials. At the ollico of the secretary of
; ho senate the announcements were made
on a big blackboard at first , but the
crowd grow impitiont at that and called
'or direct reports , which were finally read
off the instrument as it clicked. Eight or
.on copies of the bulletins were taken by
manifold ,
who were locked up in tholr various committee -
mittoo rooms with select coteries of
friends. Some of the senators remained
in the senate chamber. Bulletins were
delivered there to Senator Hawley , who
read thorn aloud to Seniors George , Call ,
Farley , Pugh , Jones , Cockrell and Yost.
Mr. Robert Blaine , brother of the coming
man , was in there alad"aud watched 'ouch
speck of news with interest. Ilo had
stood by the telegraph instrument the
night before until three o'clock in the
morning. He is employed in the agri
cultural department and does not look
much like his illustrious brother.
It was very evident that the crowd of
privata secretaries , senate employees and
committee clerks in the Secretary's oflicu
was an Arthur crowd , or , at least , anti-
Blaino. Beta were few and careful. An
attempt at a pool was not voty successful.
There was a goodly amount ot fun , how
ever , because Anson G , McCook , the sec
retary was in Chicago , and "tho boys"
had it all their own way. All kept tally.
When the rumor came that Logan had
thrown his strength for Blaine someone
exclaimed "Secretary of war Logan , "
and the remark was applauded.
there was more interest stirred up by
the impromptu holding of a mock session.
Mr. Van Eaton took tlio chair , and any
body that wished established himself at
the desks. Mr. Belford t ok the floor.
Ho said his friend Blaine would have
been nominated in 1870 , but some one
turned out the gas , and in the darkness
Hayes was nominated. The name of
Hayes brought out a laugh. Fictitious
dispatches by "grapevine" were also con
cocted and read amid great merriment
At the white house the cabinet held a
short meeting , and then all went into
Secretary Phillips' room to hear the bul
letins. The president was alone.
Senate and housJ stand adjourned un
til Monday , when the members who have
spent the wnek in Chicago will bugm to
straggle back. The senate , particularly ,
has been a very much depopulated body ,
but has managed to pass u surprising
number ot bills and accomplish so much
business , oven without a full quorum ,
that there is now talk of adjournment by
Juno 23d. It is much moru likely to ho
July let , however. It ia warming up
hero and the iisphu turn streets are begin-
ing to show footprints. All the inhubi
tants of the fashioimblo west oud of
Washington are moving to watering
places and summer resorts and the capi
tal will soon bo deserted.

WASHINGTON , Juno 9. Hie minority
report of the aonatu committee on th
Danville rioU cays ; "Decent respect fo
the opinion of mankind ihould have impelled
polled ilo n publicans to conduct the in
cstigatlon with fairness , and sot forth its
csults with judicial impartiality ; aglanco
t the minority rcportwould satisfy every
ust mind that this has not been done ,
'ho ' examination was conducted with the
harpncss , the rigor , the cutting olFof un-
avorabla testimony , the loading up and
olicilatlon of that which was favorable ,
which usually characterizes criminal cases
n the hustings cuurt. The people of
Diuivillo were nil the way through treated
s though they were on trial , with the
epubllcttn senators acting as prosecutor ? ,
'lungs wore assumed to bo true on the
ambling statements of ignorant negroes ,
hough disproved by others with greater
ntolligonco , both white and black. "
The report describes the riot from the
tnndpoint of the minority as a purely local
iUT ir , and not the result of conspiracy.
"tcnttrs nt length into the history of
twlosMioss of mobs in northern cities ,
Iwolls upon the crimes nnd violence at
ho north , nlludps to the Cincinnati riots ,
o the Towksbury almshuno invosliga-
ion in Massnchusfttn , the killing of in-
jfTonsivo negroes in Now York and other
lorthorn states , and suggested
, n investigation into these matters would
> o ns proper a subject of congressional
nquiry for investigation as the killing of
our negroes in Danville. "Whilst the
senator from Ohio wai invostigiiing the
riot in Danville and holding up his hands
n horror at the shooting of four negroes
n the crowd , some 200 of whom had at
acked and crowded to the wall some 15
or 20 whites , bloodshed , murder and
arson were running riot in his own city ,
Cincinnati , during which moro than 50
iota ing were killed , twice that number
rounded and n million dollars worth of
property destroyed. "
The minority ask how it would bo if
; ho committee were appointed to investi
gate the "Killing of the negroes in Ohio
for the sale of their carcasses to the
medical colleges"and to report upon the
"state trade in that branch of American
industry , and whether it is likely to in
terfere with the pork packing business of
; ho city of Cincinnati. "
Ttio report charges the majority with
making a partisan throat depriving the
people of Mississippi of representation
n case they do not vote for the republl
can candidate ; and of shifting the ox
lonso of printing campaign documents
from the pockets of the republican na
tional executive committee on to the pub
lie treasury.

of California , made a ringing speech ,
after which Congressman Boutollo made
a speech , which was cut short by the
starting of the train at 4:20 : for Augusta ,
artillery welcomed the train , but a stop
of only two minutes was mado. All
