The man who will back his judgment with tnonoy is tbo ono who commands attention when ho uttore political prognostications. A number of men were about the capllol today Reeking those individuals who have recently boon onylng that President Harrison would not bo ronomlnntod nt Minneapolis , nnd wherever tboy were found they were re quired to back their opinions with something substantial. Two bets were finally made as n result of this effort , ovoti money bomg plncod on the president against the Bold. Two appeared to exhaust the ootlro .supply of sangulnu Opposition. A number of repub licans who opposed ronomlnntion for per sonal reasons olTerod to make wnRors that the president would bo ronomumtod , nnd some offered largo odds , ? 1XJ ( to JtXMn ono In- Blanco being olTorod by nn administration man. man.As n pure matter of financial spoculntion there Is scarcely n betting man In Washing ton tonight who would not Jump at n chance to mane a wager that the president Will bo ro- nouiinutod. On Tuesday n man at the capitol - tel offered oven money that ho could iiamo flvo men , ono of whom would bo the nominee nt Minneapolis. His offer was quickly token by a democrat when the names were mentioned nnd it was found tbnt the name of Harrison was not ninoiiR thorn. Tlioy I'ut up Coin Cash , The contlemnn who accepted the wager then offered to permit the addition of two names to the list and again olTorod to give pormlsslon to add to those seven names the possibilities of two states , any Iwo which might bo mentioned , and there were no takers. Then thob.vrs were thrown down nnd wngors were offered even on Harrison nealnst the Hold. Hut two have so far been accepted. Tins Bin : correspondent would undertake to Jlnd tukeis for all llio money of these who bollevo that President Harrison will not bo nominated nt Minneapolis. In this connection It is intcrotiiic to note that Colonel Joe Rickey of St. Louis , the well Know election plunger , Is bore and tak ing all the bets ho can get at any terms , that Mr. Cleveland will not bo nominated. Colonel Itlckoy U rocognl/cd ns ono of the shrewdest democratic politicians in the country and is n ma. , who always bets to win. A revised list of tbo delegates to tbo Min neapolis convention who have so far boon in- tructed lo vote upon the lirst ballot for the rcnomlnatlon of President Harrison , count ing those who have been Instructed by con- tlous hold this week and who have boon up to this afternoon noted , shows a total of 330. These have boon actually instructed. These include the delegates instructed In Mary land nnd Illinois nnd reduce some what the number of delegates who have in Iho absence of instruclions in dicated their determination to vote for the president's ronominution nnd these who nro sure to bo selected for ronominatlon from 211 to till. Added to the Instructed delegates .Iho Harrison column today swells up lo the absolute tolnl of 527 , which is sovonty-slx moro than the number necessary to insure rcnomlnatton. Counting two delegates from Alaska , the Minneapolis convention \ \ bo eompoM'd of oven 000 delegates , i > o that 151 will bo necessary to a choice. CluM'luiul .May Withdraw. A \\oll known member of congress from the northwest , who refuses to have his name URod in connection witu Iho slatamont , says that ho had recently a conversation with ex- Ptcsident Cleveland in whicli the latter gave him the distinct impression , without so btat ing In words , lhat ho would probably aslc that Ins nnrno bo noi presented at the Chicago cage convention in the Interests of harmony.

At Twenty-third nnd L streets yesterday afternoon there was a ripple of excitement n the neighborhood. Shortly after noon the J-ycar-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Ucorgo Jerrarz was missed , nnd a visit to the nclgli- jors failed to reveal the whereabouts of the joy. When last seen ho was playing with "its do ? near a big washout on L street , The plnca was visited and to the horror o ! the beholders It was soon that n cave In had recently tnkon place. The opinion was lulculy formed that the child and dog were [ juried underneath. Shovels were quickly irocurcd nnd the work of removing tbo earth jogan. After removing n largo quantity of , ho dirt , the searchers were convinced that the boy was not buried thoro. A searching r > nrty was formed and the woods near by thoroughly scoured. Up to a late hour last evening tbo whoro- nbouts of the child was not known. Charles Scarr , the druggist , snys ho saw the bov near his store nt Twonty-tourth and M streets , shortly after noon , but being busy paid little attention to the incident. Tno child were n small black lint , red waist , gray skirt , rod stockings and a ualr of shoos , tils dog Is a yellow ono , and is un- loubtcdly with him , as a great attachment exists liotwoen thorn.

No currency Is every placed in the safe , conso- quonlly the ourglars secured no booty. The chocus nnd vouchers were untouched , the thlovos evidently believing that to take and attempt to cash thorn would load to their ap prehension.
