WAsin.Niro.v , April 25. [ Special Tele
gram to the BIK.I : TliOjalleged determina
tion of President Cleveland to decline a re-
nomination Is still the topic of discussion
among politicians , and democrats have
begun to consider who Is to take Cleveland's
place In event of his absolute refusal to allow
his name to bo used. Senator Gorman has
been interviewed on the subject. He said
that the president had frequently expressed
himself twice as strongly against a second
term as ho has recently been represented In
the press. "But this will not prevent the people
ple from saying that It Is only a blind , " con
tinued the senator , "and that when the
time comes It will be found that
a renomlnatlon will not be
so distasteful to the occupant of the white
"In the event of a positive declination by
Cleveland , who would be most liketo ! sne
ered him as the standard bearer of the de
mocracy ? " was asked.
"Them ) on are too hard for me , " said the
senator , "for It Is all In the clouds vet as to a
nominee In IbbS. Why , three weeks before
Cleveland was nominated ho had not a ghost
of a chance , but In that short space of tune a
reaction set In and ho was borne through tri-
tMipliantly. To-day If a conven
tion was to be held by the two
great parties Cleveland would bo
nominated by ono and Blalne by the other ,
and no eaithly power could prevent It. To
be sure , Cleveland would lead Blaine again
and do tt by a much larger majority than he
did at the last election , but no ono pan fore
tell a year ahead about what nominating
conventions will do , the only exceptions to
this rule that 1 recall having occurred in the
lives of Grant and Jackson , when It was a
foicgono conclusion , and the conventions
held were mere formal ratifications of party
wishes. What It will do In the next cam
paign Is a matter of conjecture en
tirely , but 1 see that three can
didates for the vlco-presldcnp.v w nt
Fouth this morning to look after their fentri.
1 refer to Postmaster General Vllas. Sect i-
tury Kumar and Senator Voorhees , either of
whom would bo pleased to have the lightning
fttrlko In his direction. There will undoubt
edly bo a lively time before those three gentle-
niBi. return from Charleston , but in my
opinion Lamar Is the strongest and he will
bo the most popular among the people that
the party propose to visit. From the best in
formation obtainable I would say that Presi
dent Cleveland's race is still on and number
less dark horses may bo expected among the
entries before the conventions meet.
The strongest men in their re
spective parties to-day are Cleveland
and Blalne. What a few weeks or months
may bring forth no one can determine , but
tne Indications are that despite the alleged
declaration Cleveland will be renominated
by bis party. I have hoard him repeatedly
declare In terms much stronger than those
imputed to the western senator a few davs
ngo , that he did not desire , nor should ho ac
cept a second term , but ho did not Impress
me as being so sincere In this as other state
ments made since he became president. "
Other Democratic Statesmen Talk.
WASHINGTON , April 24 , [ Special Tele
gram to the BKK. | Several well-known
democratic statesmen and politicians ex
pressed to the BKR correspondent to-day the
belief that this talk about President Cleve
land having Indicated to Dorshelmer a deter
mination to not be a candidate for rcnomlna-
tion will result in securing an expression from
him on tlio subject of the next campaign.
Generally some credence Is given to the
story In regard to what Is ciedited to the
president in his talk with Dorsheimer and
others , notwithstanding the latter's denial.
Senator Vest , of Missouri , said ot It to-day :
" 1 don't believe the president has ever writ
ten any such letter or that ho has ever
thought of writing a letter of that kind. In
my opinion all that ho has over said upon the
subject of a renomlnatlon was In substance
whatlio said to me , and ho said the same to
ex-Senator McDonald , to Moirlson , to Car
lisle and to other democrats. That was , ho
Had no desire fora second term ; that his
ambition was to administer the government
in such a manner that any democrat could
be elected. The president Is an honest and
conscientious public servant , striving to do
the best that Is possible for the whole coun
try. He Is not given to ambitious schemes.
1 do not believe that bo gives any thought
now to succession. He Is too busily engaged
with present duties for that , and I have no
idea that ho has over considered a letter de
claring his attitude as a possible candidate at
all necessary. So tar a ; his own personal
feelings and Inclinations go , I believe ho
would bo glad to letlro at the end of his
E\-Hppresentatlvo Stevens , of Now York ,
said : "President Cleveland will not go Into
the hustings and buy up votes. He will not
use patronaco to secure a renomlnatlon ,
Hut , ft the democrats offer him the nomina
tion , he will accept It. ' '
"Can ho get the New York delegation ? "
"He can If ho wants It. Ho will got the
nomination if he wants it. The grumbling
of those who thought tlio only thing to do
was to turn the republicans out is dying out
and U will not prejudice Cleveland's
chances , I do not believe there over was a
man In the white house so hard to be In-
lluenced against his conscience as Is Clove-
land. Neither tin eats , nor liattorv , nor hope
ot reward can Induce him to do a thing that
ho thinks ought not to be done. 1 do not
bay this because of any gratitude I owe him
lor favois granted , for no man has got fewer
favors than I. But 1 like an honest man and
people like him. "
Inasmuch as the statements published
about the president's declarations came fiom
an unfriendly source , his friends say they
were intended to compel him to commit him-
fcolf luainst a reiiomlnation ,
What Dortihoimer Says.
NKW YOIIK , April 25. Hon. William
Dorcholmcr makes tlio following statement :
"In view ot the reports which have been sent
out by the Washington correspondents ot
some western ncvvspaucrs , I think It proper
to make tlio following * statement : In Jan
uary last the president said to mo that ho
bad been contemplating making a public
declaration which would take him out of the
lield as a candidate In lbdiHo bald ho was
led to this conclusion , not only by personal
considerations , but because he thought such
n course would relieve him from the Imputa
tions which were dally cast upon him , and
which Interfered with Ids usefulness In
office. Atter listening to the president's ob
servations , and supposing that he wished an
expression ot my opinion , 1 told him that I
thought such a declaration would bo very un
wise , and that It would Increase his perplexi
ties rather than diminish them. 1 also said it
was not tor film to say whether ho would bo a
candidate for re-election or not. Th t was a
matter to be decided by the democrats who
had honoied him greatly and who had a
right to Ids erv Ices it they doalred them. 1
also urged that no tradition would bo broken
by bis candidacy for a second term , and that
it might bo most Important to his phrty and
country that ho should bo re-elected. After a
long conversation upon this subject , the
effect of which was , as I have stated , the
matter was dropped and has not since been
alluded to except In a casual manner , lhavo
never had In my possession a letter from the
president with inference to a second term ,
nor have I ever seen such a letter or dratt of
one. 1 have not been In Washington since
the -Ith of this month. If the president has
arrived at tha determination suggested In his
mvenation with mo'last January , 1 do nut
know It : but , knowing well his character , I
am confident that If ho thinks It his duty to
decline a renomlnatlon , he will make his in
tention nubile In a way which will render a
misunderstanding of It Impossible. "

A TALK WITH IIOSSER.
The Solid South LJrokcn and Democ
racy With It.
NEW YOIIK , April 25. [ Special Telegram
to the BKK. ] Thomas L. Hossor , a confed
erate cavalry leader and since the war ono
of the constructing engineers of the North
ern Pacific , spends the winters In Virginia ,
and Is an ardent democrat. In a talk with a
correspondent ho said : "Virginia and
North Carolina , 1 am frank to say , are lost to
us. They will bo suiely republican in the
next presidential contest. The people are
thoroughly dissatisfied with the work of the
last democratic house ot representatives.
They expected to see the tariff bill revised ,
the tobacco tax lemoved , the educational bill
passed and the distribution of some
of the surplus for Internal Improve
ments. They were disappointed In
everything. The solid south Is broken
and probably it will never bo solid
again. There is no prospect at all that wo
can win in the next presidential contest.
Two or more of our southern states will
surely bo republican and with the labor de
velopments of the past year it is easy to see
that we cannot carry New York. That of
course defeats us. "
When asked about tha report that the
Union Pacific is going to surrender Its main
line from Omaha to Ogden to satisfy claims
of the United States , he said : " 1 should not
be surprised if it were true. It would be a
sharp business turn on the part of the Union
Pacific company. The line Is a fair equiva
lent for the debt , but the company could
make a new through line by uniting its lines
and extending them more cheaply than It
could pay Us debt to the government. "

BiiKvvsiKii , Ulalno Co. , Neb. , ( .vlaOrd ) ,
April 2-1. [ Special Telegram to the Bui : . ]
The iirellmlnary examination of Mlchal Yoa-
kum on the charge of murder , resulted In
his being held for trial , and he has been sent
toUordtobe confined In jail until his trial
comes up. The fact that this was Ithune's
maiden trial for a capital olfense , created
more Interest than would otherwise ln.vo
been taken , and the little court room was
crowded with people. The evidence , as
brought out at the examination , shows the
following facts : In the early part of the
year Michael Yoakum , an ex-soldier and ex
perienced frontiersman , was living
on a government claim In the un
organized territory Immediately west of
Maine county. Among his neighbors was a
'armer named Bowers , who kept a country
Do.irding house. Lincoln W. Downing was
one of the boarders of tills house , and was
engaged In clearing and fencing a claim in
lie neighborhood. For some time Downing
ind missed a number of fresh fence posts ,
and on Investigation charged Yoakum with
ho theft. On April 7 last the two men met ,
when Downing reiterated the charge , and
alter n passage of hot words , struck Yoakum
ightly in tlio face. Incensed beyond con
trol , trio latter attempted to seiz a gun from
the hands of a bystander , and fall I UK
'n this , started his house , calling to Downing
o follow him or wait his return and "lix
him. " Knowing the desperate character of
tlio man , Downing started for his boarding
house on a run , and there related the circum
stances of his meeting with Yoakum , saying
that he know Yoakum would kill him betoio
sundown. Shortly utterwards Farmer Dow
ers noticed a man armed with a rillo lurking
in the distance , but seeing no more of him ,
Downlng's fears were partially .subdued , and
though ho was decidedly nervous trom tear
and slept but little that night , the IIODO was
entertained by his filends that the atlalr
would blow over without rserlous re
sults. Karly the next morning ,
( April 8. ) Downing and another farmer by
tlio name of Frankenbeiger went to the
Dower stable to feed their horses. Frankon-
bergcr had just finished attending his. horse
when ho heard a shot and turned just In
time to see Downing reel and tall to the lloor
with a groan. The assassin disappeared as
mysteriously as lie came , and the" bleeding
body of Downing was carried to the Uower
house , where all possible aid was rendered
the dying man. An examination showed the
wound to have been made by a rille ball ,
which penetrated about tlnec Inches below
and to the lettof the light nipple and com
ing out In the back about three Inches still
lower down , showing that the shot had
been tired from an elevated position.
Downing lived only about thirty minutes
after being wounded. Tlio news of the kill
ing spread rapidly and while three neighbor
ing farmers were en route to the scone of the
tiairedy they discovered Michael Yoakum In
the woods who , when he saw them , vainly en
deavored to conceal a rlllo with which ho
There was , of course , ro doubt of the Iden
tity of the assassin , and Sheiilt Hoblnouth ,
accompanied by a deputy , reached Yoalaim's
house that night. The next morning
they proposed that their host
show them a good piece of government land
in the neighborhood , for which service they
agreed to pay him 850. Not suspecting the
real mission of his visitors , Yoakum cheer
fully yielded to the tempting bait , and tlie
three started out in the sheriffs spring wagon.
When about a halt mile from the house ,
Sheriff Hoblnault. who was sitting on the
rear seat , seUed Yoakum's arms and pinioned
them in vice-llkograsp , while his deputy pro
duced the handcuffs , and atter a short strug
gle locked them hrmly on the wrists of the
now thoroughly astonished man. The
handcuffs had no sooner been clasped
than i the struggling terrllied man ,
even before being Informed of the cause of
his arrest , yelled out In stammering tones :
"Hovs , 1 never killed Downing ; sure I
didn't. " Ho expiessed great fear of being
lynched and frequently beseeched the olliccrs
to protect him from mob violence.
The victim of Yoaknms's passion was a
young man aged twenty years , and well
known and liked in this section.
The murderer was a soldier In the late war ,
and is lifty-seven years of age. Though far
trom being handsome , Yoakum Is of a type
of man that attracts attention In any local
ity. He has a very keen eye , his forehead Is
flat and his shoulders considerably stooped ,
but his whole bearing Rives him the appear
ance of being a "bad man. "
The result of the examination did not
seem to disturb him much and ho took the
matter very cooly. remarking at the adjourn
ment of court : "Well , I am lifty-seven years
old , been In a good many scrapes of mote or
loss importance , and have never been caught
before this , but thu boys [ tlio sheiltlsl got the
drop on me. " It is stated that Yoakum has
often had his hands in blood , having killed
three men before.

Nnw OIII.KANS , April 25. [ Special Tele
gram to the Bii : : 1 Jell Davis Is out In along
letter replying to General Beauiegard's
animadversions on the former's speech at the
unvollinc of the Albert Sidney Johnston
monument , on which occasion he attributed
tlio loss of the battle of Shlloh to Incompe
tent management of one of Johnston's as
sistants. No name was mentioned , but it
was generally understood , and Beauregaid
took it to himself and replied In a caustic
manner. The president of the lost cause
criticises the management of the battle after
the death ot Johnston In a caret uI And severe
manner. He closes with the remarks : "I
have no disposition to enter Into this
controversy and did net mention General
Beaurcgaid cither by name or official desig
nation in my speech. He undertook to make
plain as a reference to himself what might
hove been generally supposed to belong to
some staff olllcer. But ho know the ilghtful
owner and claimed his own and proved thai
it could not rcterto anything which happened
on the Held orShlloh. It would have been
moiopeitlnent if lie had shown that the order
ot maich had not been the cause of delay in
the arrival of troops at the point ot junction. "

MKW i'onif , April 25. The Post's Wash
ington special says : There are some Indlca
tlons that the proclamation of non-inter
course with Canada on the basis of the Kd-
munds bill Is regarded as possible , while
Salisbury's latest proposition to extend the
provisions of the Washington treaty vvithou
the Indemnity clause Is considered at Glou
eester as an Impudent proposition because o
Its carrying with It a free ilsh clause , whlcl
was not Included in Secretary Bayard's tern
nurary arrangement. It Is denounced In
Toronto as an unworty surrender of Cana
dian interests. The conclusion Is therefore
believed to bo Inevitable that non-intercourse
will first have to bo proclolmed , to bo fol
lowed , as Is anticipated , by a joint commls
slon to adjust the matters in ulaputp , whlcl
was the course originally recommended.

First Performance at Chicago of the
Conservatory Stock Company.
CHICAGO , April 25. McVickcr's theater
was to-night the scene ot a new departure In
a theatrical way , and one that drew a largo
and fashionable audience. The novelty was
the opening of tlio Inaugural season of the

the Chicago conservatory of dramatic and
musical art , who have for two years pa t
acted as auxiliaries at the Chicago opera
house and phycd leading parts at the
monthly public receptions given at that
theater by the management of the conserva
tory. Its formal inauguration as n pcima-
ncnt organisation , to bo maintained In con
nection with the Institution from which it
takes Its name , Is principally the result of
the unanimous expressions of approval
of Its production of a num
ber of comedies , dramas and
musical sketches by the most prominent
wiitesof the time , VTOP from the local press.
The injury to the business ot traveling com
binations tlueatened by the law was Instru
mental In causing Samuel Kaysei , the con
servatory's director to accent the oppoitunlty
offered by Manager Mevickpr to establish
hlsstock company system at once in a week's
engagement at the tatter's theater. The ex
cellent dramatic work already performed by
the local members of the company has stimu
lated local pride In the Institution to the ex
tent which Is Illustrated by the largo attend
ance to-'ileht , the liberal advance purchases
of seats for the remainder ot the engage
ment , and the open support and Indorse
ment the foremost promoters of art.sue
movements In Clilcaco notably that of Fred
