Political News,
Washington, March 30. Mr. J. II.
Manley sent the following- telegram
yesterday to the Massachusetts He
publicans: "At the close of your convention
there will have been 398 delegates
elected. Governor McKinley will have
102 delegates, provided you assign to
him the entire delegation from Wiscon
sin. Indiana and Minnesota. Hut there
should be taken from this number
twelve delegates from the States, who
have declared since their election in
favor of Mr. Reed, and as they were
not instructed they should be taken
from McKinley column and placed
in Mr. Reed's. This erives Governor
McKinley 150 delegates, Mr. Reed 72,
Governor Morton 64, Senator Allison
3S, Senator Quay 26, Senator Cullom
12; contested, 36.
"You will see that this gives McKin

McKinley delegates.
"The situation is precisely as it was
twenty years ago. You will remem
ber that three months before the con

confident of Mr. Blaine's nomination.
He stood then as the apostle of pro
tection. but he had opposed to his
nomination. Senator Conkling of New
York, Senator Morton of Indiana, Sec
retary Ilristow of Kentucky, Governor
Hayes of Ohio, and Governor Hart
ranft of hennsylvania. We feit so
sure of Mr. Blaine's nomination that
we regarded it as settled, and vet he
was defeated in the convention, and
the Maine man went down before the
Ohio governor.
"History will repeat itself at Sts
Louis. Governor McKinley is, and
will be, the leading candidate in the
convention, but he will have opposed
to him as a candidate Governor Mor
ton of New York, Senator Allison of
Iowa, Senator Cullom of Illinois, Sen
ator Quay of Pennsylvania, and Mr.
Reed of Maine. You will find that
the tables will be turned, and the
Governor of Ohio will go down before
the man from Maine.

torial convention, to select six dele
gates to the national convention, was
called to order to-day, it was evident

lively one. Every county had a nom
inee for national delegate.

voring Reed, and whatever other fore
cast of the convention's actions might
be made, it seemed positive that the
St. Louis delegation would not be
solid for either.

l.or.l Salisbury's Foreign Policy Denounc
ed by the Liberal Leader.
London, Marcn 30. The Earl of
lloseberry, leader of the Liberal
party, made an. important speech last
night before the National Liberal
federation, charging the government
with a deplorable want of continuity
in the foreign policy, lie pointed out
that within six months they had been
on the verge of war with the United
States, and then with Germany, and
now they were embarking on a war
with no particular enemy, lie passed
over the black and bloody page of
Armenia, he said, which English
men would all look back to
with shame and remorse. Lord Salis
bury, up to the end of December,
had displayed leanings to the Drei
bund. By the beginning of January
liis continuous policy had landed
Ureat Britain in the arms of France,
whose aiTections it was intended to
gain by the monstrous Siam conven
tion. That state had lasted about
six weeks, and then Lord Salisbury
embarked in a march to the Soudan,
which outrages France and throws
(Ireat Britain back into the arms of
the Dreibund. Lord Rosebery pro
ceeded in detail to very strongly criti
cise the Nile expedition.
Continuing, Lord Rosebery coir
plained of the indeefsion and failure
of the government to take the country
into its confidence. He greatly feared
that the government was fooling it
self as well as the country. "Was it
the time," he asked, "when we were
menaced with complications in all
quarters of the worldj to scatter our
forces in the deserts of the Soudan in
awar which nobody could foresee the
end of. and to waste the money which
Egypt needed for great irrigation
woiks?" The remainder of his speech
was devoted to home polities.
It Is Said That Republicans and Popu
lists Will Combine.
Austin, Tex., March 30. A report
is current here, and it has appeared in
some of the Texas papers, that the
leaders of the Republicans and the
Populists have a scheme to fuse, the
Republicans to vote for the Populist
nominees for State officers, and the
Populists to put Republican electors
on their ballots. If this fusion is
accomplished it certainly will en
danger Texas as a Democratic state
this year. Two years ago the Demo
cratic vote for Culberson was 207,167:
Fopulist vote, 152,731; "black and tan"
Republicans, 54,520: "lily white" Re
publican, 5,026. The figures show
that the combined opposition two
years ago had a majority of over 5,000,
and this has been greatly increased
since by defections from the Demo
cratic ranks.

I Work In the Senate.
' Washington, March 28. When the
Senate met to-day the legislative ap
propriation bill was then taken up,
the pending question being on the
motion of Mr. Sherman to strike out
all provisions relating to the change
of compensation from fees to salaries
for United States district attorneys
and marshals.
Mr. Allison spoke against the prac
tice of placing "riders' on appropria
tion bills, but he regarded this reform
as exceptionable and desirable.
"This position of the Senator from
Iowa" (Allison), said Mr. Hoar, "re
minds me of the Scotch lassie who said
she had found the best way to get rid
of a temptation was to yield to it."
At tne close oi the discussion an
amendment by Mr. Vilas was defeated
on a viva voce vote. A roll call fol
lowed on Mr. Sherman's amendment
and it was defeated 18 to 20. This
was accepted as a test indicating the
adoption of the proposed change from
the fee to the salary system for dis
trict attorneys and marshals.
Mr. Bill moved to strike out the
provision that the legislative assembly
oLNew Mexico should meet in May.
"This is a small, mean, contemptible.
political trick," he exclaimed with
great vigor. "It is a provision sneaked
into this appropriation bill to force
the approval of the President."
The Senator explained that the pres
ent Legislature, which was Demo
cratic, would meet in December, but it
was attempted by this amendment to
put otf the meeting- of the Legislature
till May iu the hope that a Republican
president might be inaugurated in the
meantime. It was a contemptible
trick, to 'sneak iu" a political advan
"What right have you to say 'sneak
ed in?' '' interrupted Mr." Elkins.
What authority have vou for such a
"Ah," responded Mr. Hill with unc
tion, thought I'd stir up the sena
tor from New Mexico. 1 see beside
him the author of this plan, who on
the minute is here to whisper in his
ear in support of it. What I mean by
sneaked in' is that it is unworthy
that this political trick should tried in
connection with a great appropriation
"Rut the senator has made serious
charge," persisted Mr. Elkins, ."let
him continue his explanation to as
sertion of 'sneaking in.' What does
he ir.ean by that?"
"I mean that such a political plan
has no place here. It has crept in,
sneaked 'in. Will the senator deny
that this is a political amendment?"
Mr. Elkins responded that the
House of Representatives in the exer
cise of its rights had introduced this
proposed change.
Mr. Hill reiterated that the amend
ment had "crawled in." Of course
the senator from West Virginia would
deny it. When he denied that this
was a political trick he showed his
capacity for emergencies.
Some senator in the rear of Mr. Hill
whispered that Mr. Elkins had not
made a denial. "Then if he has not
denied it, he will deny it," continued
Mr. Hill, "for he does not want to
father this petty little political plan."
The senator asserted that appropri
ation bills should not be made
sewers" to receive all the "scraps"
every one might seek to put into
Mr. Cullom, in charge of the bill,
said that he was surprised at this out
burst of excitement from the New
York Senator who, he feared, "would
have a spasm before he got through."
"Oh, no;'- interrupted Mr. Hill, "I
was never cooler in my life."
Mr. Cullom explained that the
amendraenPcame from the House in
the regular way. He expressed the
hope that there should be no personal
reflection ou the delegate from New
Mexico, to whom .Mr. Hill had re
ferred as sitting beside Mr. Elkins.
The Oklahoma Republican Convention
IJkety to Be Quite a Warm One
Guthbie, Okla., March 28 Every
thing indicates that the Republican
territorial convention at Oklahoma
City to-morrow will be exciting from
start to finish, both the Reed and Mc
Kinley factions claiming a majority.
An attempt will be made to shut out
Henry fi. Asp, the Reed manager, by
a declaration that Guthrie having the
Congressman and asking for his re
nomination is entitled to nothing
more. Then a move will be started to
break the whole machine by having
the convention elect a national com
mitteeman. This will be vigorously
opposed by the Reed men, as it wiil
spoil the bargain they .iave made, but
the McKinley men, with the assist
ance of the country delegates, expect
to carry it.

here to-dai' by the Republican estate
convention,' amid the greatest en
thusiasm. The delegates ' came with
only one name in their minds as their
choice for the presidential nomina

bled with shouts and. handclapping,
cheers and waving of hats as the dele- j
gations contested with each other in ,

"Massachusetts Republicans have
never undertaken to pledge oi bind
their delegates to a national conven
tion. We do not intend to do so now.
But we think it fitting o declare our
decided preference among the candi
dates lor the Republican nomination
to the presidency. We present to the
national convention for nomination,
as president, and we urge all our del
egates to give their earnest, united
and active support to a fearless leader,
tried in many hard conflicts, a man of
national reputation, of unblemished
character, unswerving1 Republicanism
and great abilities, the Hon. Thomas
B. Reed of Maine."
The applause was especially marked
when the Cuban and gold standard
planks and the section referring to the
separation of church and state were
read, but all previous demonstrations
were not to be compared with the roar
that followed the mention of Reed's
name as the nominee of the Repub
licans of Massachusetts for the Presi
dency. Then the enthusiasm rose to a
climax and round upon round of ap
plause rolled up through the hall.
Then. followed the . election of four
delegates at large to the national con
vention: Senator Henry Cabot Lodge
of Nahant, , W. T. Murray Crane of
Dal ton, Eben S, Draper of Hopedale
and Curtis Guild, jr.. of Boston all
