The commissioners made the fol

The Louisville bridge having been
built by the precinct of Louisville
as an inernal improvement, bonds
having been voted for such purpose
by said precinct, the bridge belongs
to the Louisville precinct and not to
the county, which had no say in the
matter. Therefore the precinct

A HLA1XE VICTORY.
When the Louisiana contest was
heard ex-Senator William Pitt Kel
logg and ex-Governor Warmouth
headed the respective forces. Kel
logg, who aapears as regular dele
gate, prevailed before the sub-committee,
beating Warmouth, who
led the contesting delegation in
every district except the Sixth,
where the sub-committee split two
votes between the factions. This is
a Hlaine victory.
The "lilly whites" from Texas, the
conimittte decided, would be ad
mitted. The result of the contest
as a whole is favorable to Hlaine.
Ex-Governor Hracket of Massa
chusstts denied the signs of a stam
pede for Hlaine in the delegation.
Change among the Massachusets
men so far as apparent, favor a
third man, with Reed or McKinley
Ex-Senatoi Tom Piatt said to
night that he had no figures for
publication. "We are confident of
Mr. Hlaine's nomination on the first
ballot." he continued. "Hut further
than that we do not care to state
what we know of the strength of
the two candidates. Things are a
litle choatic anyhow, especially as
far as the southern delegates a're
concerned and no man can give fig
ures that will have sufficient accu-
acy to be valuable. We have made
gains of considerable importance
to-day and the situation to-night is
entirely satisfactory to the friends
of Mr. Hlaine."
Governor McKinley said to-night,
(speaking of the reported defection
of the southern delegates, "Yes,
they will keep on getting votes
from the south until the balloting
A careful canvass made by Mr.
Harrison's people this evening
leads them to claim, that he can lose
fifty southern votes and still be
nominated on the lirst ballot.
1ANK HOWSE TALK KESUMKI.
A noticeable fact which deserves
consideration is this, that at mid
night, after all the varying events
of the day, after the test votes in
numerous delegations, after a com
parison of claims and tabular state
ments on both sides, the old hands
of both factions, these veteran party
leaders who have been made famil
iar by long experience with the
tricks and manners of such polit
ical gatherings as this, are almost
a unit in the opinion that no iiomi
nation will be made either on the
first or second ballot. Their belief
is that sufficient scattering votes
will be cast by some of those
counted mi the list of each of the
great leaders to prevent a nomina
tion until it becomes plain on
which side of the fence the cat will
jump. Then all the trimmers will
jump after it. Hut if one or more
ballots are held without result, th.Mi
