THE CHICAGO CONVENTION.
SOUND MONEY PLATFORM.
He Will Have the Support of tbe Admin
titration Force, From President
Cleveland Down Cleveland Will
bine s Declaration Refusing
a Third Term Carlisle
Washington, March J.6. Secretary
Carlisle is a candidate for the Presi
dential nomination at Chicago, and
public announcement to that effect
will soon be made by one of the Secre
tary's close friends in the Senate.
This announcement, however, will not
be made until President Cleveland has
formally stated his purpose not to per
mit his name to be used in the conven
tion in connection with a third term.
It is learned on excellent authority
that the President has fully decided
upon this course, and it is expected
that he will make known his deter
mination within a short time.
Although Secretary Olney's name
has been considered with favor among
the Democratic leaders, it is known
that he does not desire the nomina
tion. It is undoubtedly true that Mr.
Carlisle's candidacy will have the sup
port of Mr. Cleveland and the mem
bers of the cabinet. lie will go before
the convention as the representative
of the sound money views of the ad
. ministration. His faiends, in conduct
ing the canvass for Mr. Carlisle's nom
ination, will urge that it be laid upon
a sound money platform, and, if he be
successful at Chicago, will then make
this issue prominent in the campaign
leading up to the November election.
Kepresentative Patterson of Tennes
see has received from Secretary Car
lisle the following letter in response
to ex-Speaker Crisp's declaration that
silver had received unfriendly treat
ment at the secretary's hands:
"In answer to vour Question I can
only say that in all the operations of
ine treasury aeparwueDi aunu my
administration of its a,ffairs the legal
tenuer gold and silver coins of the
United fetates have been treated pre
cisely alike, except that greater ef
forts have been made to keep silver
coin in circulation than have been
made to keep gold coin in circulation.
The amount paid out by the depart
ment in silver coins and silver certifi
cates, greatly exceeds the amount paid
out in gold coins and gold certificates,
and in no instance has the least dis
crimination been made against silver
or its paper representative.
1 "It has always been the policy of
Hhe Treasury department to encourage
the use of silver to the largest possi
ble extent, and in order to accomplish
this, standard silver dollars will be
sent by express at the cost of the gov
ernment to an j'one who will deposit
an equal amount in silver certificates
' or in treasury notes of 1630 with the
United States treasurer or any assist
ant treasurer or with a national bank
depository, and subsidiary silver coins
will be sent by express at the expense
of the government to anyone wno win
deposit with such officers or ' banks
any kind of United States currency or
national bank notes; but srold is not
sent to anybody free of charge.

ITALY VILL FIGHT IT OUT
PREMIER RODINI DECLARES THAT
THE WAR WILL BE CONTINUED,
A BIG CREDIT IS VOTED.
The Reception of the Premier's Statement
Was Favorable The Strongest Advo
cates of Peace Policy Joined In
the Enthusiasm of the Depu
ties When He Paid a
Tribute to Italians. -
Rome, March 13. The entry of the
sew ministers into the Chamber of
Deputies this afternoon was greeted
with loud applause by their sup
porters. The premier, Marquis Di Rudini,
said that after the defeat at Adowa,
the cabinet had adopted resolutions
leaving General Baldissera free to
take proper measures to meet the sit
uation, including abandoning Adigrai
and Kassala if such measures should
be deemed, expedient March 8 the
general was instructed to treat for
peace on the best terms obtainable
and the present cabinet would con
tinue the negotiations with prudence
This statement was received with
applause from those in favor of a
peace policy and with cries of disgust
and derision favoring the previous
colonial policy and a strong effort to
retrieve the Adowa disaster.
The premier waited, smiling until
the uproar had subsided, and then re
marked significantly: "But the gov
ernment is now convinced that in lieu
of a treaty of peace hurriedly made, it
would be far preferable to first estab
lish a condition of things agreeing
with Italy's interests. In the mean
while, hostilities must continue."
The announcement that the African
campaign would be pushed, was greet
ed with loud and continued cheering
from the so-called military party and
with cries of dissent from the peace
Once more the premier waited until
he could be able to make himself
heard, and then he said that Italy
would never pursue a policy of expan
sion. She did not wish to conquer the
Tigre district and did not desire to in
clude an Italian protectorate of Abys
sinia as one of the conditions of peace.
But the ' dignity and honor of the
country must be upheld. He then
asked the chamber for a credit of l.o
million lire for the expenses of the
army in Africa and to send additional
troops there should such a step be ne
cessary. The reception of the premier's state
ment was, on the whole, favorable.
Even the strongest advocates of a pol
icy of peace joined in the enthusiasm
when the premier paid a glowing trib
ute to the heroism displayed by the
Italian army, the deputies rising and
cheering wildly for Italy, the Italian
army and the premier.
Later the 140 million lire asked for
by the marquis, was voted unani
mously, and this called forth another
prolonged scene of enthusiasm.
When the public outside of the
Chamber of Deputies heard that the
war was to be pushed and that the
credit asked for by the government
had been voted unanimously, they
joined in the cheering for the premier
and for Italy and the soldiers.
Coming Dongola Campaign Prob
ably One of Conquest.
London, March 18. It is generally
believed here that the proposed Brit
ish advance on the Soudan may be
fraught with most far reaching and
possibly disastrous consequences.
Arthur Balfour's admission, that Don
gola would probably not be the desti
nation but only the halting place of
the Antrlo-Egyptian forces and his
allusions to the desirability of bring
ing the blessing of British rule to the
Soudan were interpreted as indicating
that the British government is bent
upon a war, not of defense but of con
quest of that whole section.
The Free Seed Issue.
Washington, March 18. The ques
tion of the construction of the seed
resolution which has now become a

Morton to both the 'Attorney General
and the comptroller of the treasury
for opinions. Parliamentary arrange
ments for carrying the law into effect
have been made by the agricultural
department and Secretary Morton
says that he will execute to the letter
the law as constructed by the Attorney
General. The reference of the matter
to Comptroller Bowler is to prevent
any holding up of the expenditure ac
counts. Oklahoma's Mew Territory.
Guthrie, Okla., March 18. There is
much rejoicing over the United States
Supreme court decision giving to
Oklahoma Greer county, as it adds
nearly 2,000,000 acres to the area of
the territory and increases the popu
lation by 10,000 and the taxable valua
tion between $2, 000,000 and $3,000,000.

"why we'll fight." Jameson added
that he hoped the column would reach
Johannesburg before the Boers should
have time to collect Jameson as

a push, the Cape mounted rifles and the
Natal police will assist us." Jameson
also said that food and remounts
would be collected on the way to Jo
hannesburg.and added that the column
might be joined by the Bechuanaland
Replying to a question, the witness
said that Dr. Jameson, while address
ing the troopers, referred frequently
to a letter which he had in his hand
and which appeared to contain in
structions as to the conduct of the ex
pedition. Sir John Willowby, the
military commander of the expedition,
also made a speech to the men on the
same lines as Dr. Jameson, and ex
pressed the hope that the troopers
would do their best
