ST. Louis , Juno 4. [ Special Telegram to
Tun HEP. ] To-night tlio city is a blaze of
democratic glory nnil the blaring of demo
cratic brass bands 1111 the air. All
day long Indlnnans hava visited the vari
ous delegations in "behalf of the
booster BOH and when permitted fired
speeches at their victims , extolling the peett-
liur lltncss of Governor Gray for the second
place * bn the ticket. Senator Voorhccs ap
peared before tlio Pennsylvania delegation
mid addressed it at some length , to which the
delegates responded by voting to support the
Old Roman of Ohio. The Tall Sicamoro re
tired In dlxgust. This will no doubt cause
Senator Ingnlls to laugh. The Ohio demo
crats have determined to present Thurman if
It appears that the democracy of the country
wants him. Several other states have
followed Pennsylvania and it is quite evident
the democracy of the country want tlio Buckeye -
eye Hainan. Every indication now is that
the work of the convention will bo pcrfunc-
toiy throughout.
The Ncbinska delegation with the
exception of Messrs. Morton and Ka-
Kan , Including the contingent , at rived hero

I' } delegation arc much out of wits in consc-
| . qiicnco of the loss of sloop last night. It is
! alleged that the moro hilarious of the crowd
did not want to sleep and imagined the cu
ll tire delegation in the sumo mind and put in
I a night of it aboard the Pullman. They met

I meeting was held Messrs. Morton and Hngan
had not ai lived in the city , and , ot couiso ,
I had no voice in its piocccdings , which weio
exceedingly dry and uninteresting , every-
B thing going through without opposition , if
I , there had been one more place to lilt every
one of the tin delegates , including Morton ,
v could have given an onlcc. As it was there
H were only nine , and , of course , in a Bo > d
delegation Moiton must bo the sacriflcc. The

the loaves ami fishes until the gentlemen
from Nebraska City could bo present , but as
they were so largely in the minority with

v the other alleged Moiton men
H tampered with by tempting baits of positions ,
H the protest against proceeding at once with

H It is hai dly probable another meeting of the

A Inllux of the Fnltliful Arrive nt the
Sleepy City.
ST. Louis , Juno 4. Delegates , _ alter
nates , political clubs and polltlcmns
of high and low degree arrived
th'ck ' and fast this morning , and S
Louis to day assumed the crowded con
dition that Is always usual during national
conventions. As early as" this morning the
union depot was packed and all during this
morning at Intervals of live and ten minutes
regular and special trains have been coming
In and emptying their loads of people , who
como to take part in the fray. For a blocker
or moro outside the station carriages nud ve
hicles df all descriptions are packed and
along the sldo walks and in the station arc
numerous bands and reception committees ,
waiting for delegations which they hove
been assigned to escort to their hotels.
Scenes of activity which were visible
about the hotels till after midnight were re
newed and Increased early this morning. By
8 o'clock the middle corridors of the hotels
wcro thronged with people , and In the streets
bands of martial music wcro heard on every
At about 0 o'clock the middle space of the
depot was filled with people who awaited the
jirrivul of the Now Yoikers. Trains bear
ing the county demociacy and Tammany
were late.
The Chicago county democracy an ivcct
before them and so did the Iioqnois club of
the same city. Each had a baud of miulc
and all formed in line togcthci and matched
The Wisconsin delegation came next fol
lowed by the Hendricks club fiom
Lafayette , Ind , , wearing Giny
badges. The Topeka demociats' Ham-
beaux clubs with tin helmets ar-
ilved about this moment and were soon
joined bj the Kansas City democratic club.
The feature of the mouiing piobably was the
Kansas City democratic club's entiy. Their
band was gaily nirajcd and the members
of the club woi o high white hats and yellow
linen dusters. Most of them had tied about
their necks or wrapped about their hats red
bandana handkerchiefs , showing their lean
ing towaid the Old Hainan.
The ciowd stayed about the depot until
Tammany arrived and then the St. Louis
Homliieks association , wheeling into line ,
marched nw ay with Tammany , a mob of
sight-seers trailing at their heels There
was no excitement after this and the countv
democracy on its ai i Ival soon after found
the depot nlmost deseitcd
Tlio Tammany sachems numbered 700 and
icquired a train all to tliomselves , and made
up in two sections. The crowds in the depot
g.ucd curiously at the biuves , as thev
stepped off the cais. Each woio n. red silk
badge on which was punted in silver lettcis
the name "Tammany. "
Edwaid S Stokes , Koswoll P. Flower and
a few otheisof tlurammanjitcs | boaidcd u
caniago at the depot and weic driven direct
to their hotel. It is generally supposed that
Daniel Dougheitv , tlio famous silvei-tongued
oiator'who is one of the Tamm my party ,
will present President Cleveland's name to
the coin ontion. Doughortjxprcssecl ! him
self for Thuiman There weio 3 ' 5 men In
the delegation of the New Yoi k county do
mocracy. A notublo liguio among the
county men nttincting gencial attention wns
Colonel John K Fellows. Thuiman appeals
to bo the choic c of this 01 ganization for the
vice presidency.
Colonel Fellows icmaiked : "We nro for
whoever is nominated. As yet no attempt
has been made to unite on any man. I pie-
fer Thuiman if he w ill tike it and I suppose
most of the otheis do "
Although a number of Iowa delegates nr-
uved jcstciday , the pieat mass came this
morning accompanied by the Hawkejc club.

union depot over four bundled , men disem-

Thurnutn in the Lend , But Meeting
ST. Louis , June 4 , The Ohio delegation
Is split in two over Thui man's
candidacy and n feeling of intense bittciness
has grown up between the Thurman and
tlioanti-Thurman membeis of the delegation.
At 4 this afternoon the entiio Ohio delega
tion held a meeting witli closed doors to
organize and take a foi mal vote on Thurman.
In connection with Thuiman's c.indldacj
the following interesting gossip emanates
fiom high authority : Thuiman was not
seiioubly thought of as a candidate until lust
week , when Secietary Whitney sounded the
president and found him favoiably disposed
toward Thurmafi. Whitney has heretofoio
been politically unfriendly to Thurman , and
was ono of the principal factors inpievent-
ing his nomination for the presidency in 1SSO.
Calvin S. Brice , of Lima , O. , a million-
niio railroad magnate , is credited with
being the ical oilgliml piomotor of the Thur
man boom. Ho heads the Ohio delegation.
The story goes that Biico has his o.vo on the
scnatoilal scat occupied bj Senator Payne.
The Pa\no people uio not fi loudly to Brieo ,
but the latter was giv en to understand by
Thurnmn's friends that ho could not i each
the senate as long as Thuiman lived , and in
order to conciliate Thui man ami help him as
a senatorial uspliant Biieo poisuaded Seeio-
tary Whltnoi to como out for Thurman , and
and thus the Old Uouian is said to have been
bi ought into the race ,
Joseph O'Donoughof Tammany hallwhilo
waiting in the depot for information of the
line of march , talked about thoprcfcicnco of
his associates foi the vice presidency.
"Thuiman Is our cry , " ho said , ' 'litst , last
hnd all the time. Ho is the man wo want , tie
will bo nominated. With that tlcltot , Cleve
land and Thuiman , wo shall win , hands
down. "
Thurman will bo nominated for vice presi
dent w Ithoul t ontest. Sunday night the sup
poiteisof Gray weio full of hope but to
night they admit to confidential fi lends that
ttio Thurman ej clone is sweeping everything
before It. The Thuiman bteezo developed
into a toinado this mouiing w hen New Yoi.t's
delegation of countj doirocraey and Tarn
many marched tinough the streets shouting
for Thurman Tlio Tammanj ites were loudly
chceicd b.v the Huongs on the sidewalks and
In the hotels , nud in 1ml Can hour the Tarn
many men weio busll.\ engaged pinning red
bandanas on the coats of the multitude. The
nomination of Thurman is conceded on nil
sides. Congressman Scott peisists in do
olarnif ; Thurman is not the administration's
ciindidutc , but adds that ho w ill lei nominated
because hu ib thu strongest candidate. Ho
admits Tlmiman is his personal choice.
The Founsj * viinla delegation held a moot-
Ind this evening , and alter adjournment the
announcement was made that tvvo-thiids of
the dolesates favored Thurmutt and that the
minority would vote for him under the unit
rule. Following this action came the in
telligence that the Maryland delegation weio
ready to suppoit him. This meant that the
two preut leaders had come to an agreement
and hud united on a ticket The fi lends of
General llluck opened headipjaiters at the
Lindell this inurniu and attempted to get up
a boom , but their efforts met with little
IJLI-I.UM There u soiucthinc auecr uVout tbu
attitude of the Ohio delegation. It has
talked for Thurman , but has not been en
thusiastic In his behalf. The matter was
discussed for an hour In the meeting of the
delegation this afternoon and the result was
the endorsement of Tlmrman , though it was
with much difficulty" that the nntl-
Thurman men wcro won over. The
majority of the delegates wanted to make
Thurmnntho Ohio candidate to bo presented
by the state. , while others opposed him out
right , Forty-four delegates voted for n reso
lution to that effect while two did not vote.
Governor Gray's managers will probably
not put their favorite's name before the con
vention The nomination of Tlmrman , which
seems n foregone conclusion , is not satisfac
tory to hundreds of delegates who have been
Impressed bv the tnlk concerning his ago and
infirmity. The cry of the Gray boomers is :
"You want Indiana In November. How are
you golnir to win without an Indiana mini on
the ticket ! " has been used with so much ef
fect that ninny delegates believe a serious
mistake Is being made in the nomination of
a man sovcnty-llvo years old from a state
generally regarded as reliably republican.
The New York delegation will vote for
Thurmnn , nlthough there are several in the
delegation who advocate General Blnck's
candidacy , and would vote for him if tney
could do so. The unit rule , however , inter
feres with their free action. Illinois is
divided and can exert but llttlo pressure for
the soldier candidate. However , they assert
they have n strong following from Colorado.
Minnesota , Dakota , Michigan , Ohio and
many from the south. Their cry is that tlio
ticket must have a soldier on it to win the
soldier Vote.
The advocates of Governor Gray are mak
ing every endeavor to stem the tide for
Thurman , but it HCCIIIS they are losing
giound , Every club and ovciy delegation
that ni rives has a voice for Thurman , al
though there are n number who don't agieo
with that sort of politics.
Iowa men who ai rived this morning were
strong In their praise of the Old Kom in and
believed their delegation would vote that
way If they cot a chance. However , there
were some who advocated other candidates
before the tide sot in for the Ohio man , and
they were reluctant to change.
Wnttcrson's friends are pushing him for
pcimnncnt chairman , and though it has been
conceded that Colonel Pat Collins had n
moi tgago on the chair , there appears to bo a
light j ct on hand for this honor.
The most Intel cstlng phase of the Thur
mnn boom is the fact that it was started by
party leaders i csldlng outside of Ohio. Con-
giessman Scott of Pennsylvania , has warmly
advocated the cause of the Old Koman fiom
the stait. Scott's support gives cuirencj to
the repoit that President Cleveland favors
Thurinan's nomimtion , and Senator Goiman
of Maryland , is authentically icportcd with
having stated this morning that ho believed
the picsidcnt had signified to Scott that
Thuiman was his choice.
'Iho Pnellic coast took n , positive stand
this aftoiiioon on tlio question of second
place on the national ticket After the meet
ing this afternoon all doubts wcro dispelled
and Califoinlu , Oregon and Nevada will go
into the convention solid for Thurmnn.
Gteat enthusiasm pi availed at the meeting.
Govcinoi White called the meeting to oiJcr
and Colonel Tiiipcv delivered a Stirling ad
dress IIo nnvocatcd the nomination ot the
Otiio judge as the onlj man who could svvcrv o
the IIo iting vote of the coast and lead the
demoeiatic bannois to victoiy.
A meeting of this delegation was called
for 7 I0 ! o'clock to night to meet the Indiana
delegation , A few moments befoio the
Hoosieis weio expected a vote was taken ic-
sultmg in the unanimous suppoit of Thur
mnn. The Indiana people weio then ad
mitted and occupied an hour in giving their
reasons why Grav should have the support of
the conv cntion. They had their saj1 but it
was useless. 'Iho Buckcjcs sivthey have
made their light and now have determined to

a deluge. Major Armstrong sijs"Ohio

ST. Loui , Juno 4. Caiman's abandon

Some Lively Contests Over the Dif

Wyoming teiritory and Colorado wcro pres
ent. They assembled to discuss the candi
dacy of General Black for vice-president.
After canvassing the situation exhaustively ,
u committee was appointed for the purpose
of learning the status of the
rival candidates with special reference
to Thurman. The committee will

uiincd whether General Black's name w ill go

111 an of the caucus , in explanation of the
pi obable abandonment of the Illinois candi
date , siid : "The impression seems to bo
that the vote for Thurman will bo soovci-
w helming ns to put out of the question the
nomination of any other candidate. "
In the Kentucky caucus to day delegates -

determined to leave the question undecided
for the time being.
There was troubU } In the Dakota camp.
All daj was passed in fruitlcs endeavors to
effect a perm incut organization , but there
being two sets of delcjflitcs fiom that terri-
toij' , each claiming admission to the conven
tion , it was impossible to como to an agieo-
incut , and the convention will have to decide
what delegates are entitled to seats bcfoio
anj thing can be clone.
Illinois had a lively time , and % vhcn the
scummage cleared : uyny William K Morri
son was seen to be on top of the heap. W.
C. Goudy , of Chicago , hud attempted to join
foi cos with the friends-of General Black for
the double puipose of putting himself at the
head of the Illinois delegation , thus dcp.iv-
ing Morrison ot tlio chance of being a daik
hoi so for vice presfdent while correspond
ingly increasing the chances of a boom for
Black. Mori ison combined with the fucnds
of Giayand after a haid light defeated the
Goudy-Black allies. Moinson was made
ch ill man of the delegation and E M. Phelps ,

WASHINGTON , D. C. , tuna 4. )
Juno 5 3 a. m. General Sheridan is rest
ing quietly. Dr. Pepper is expected to ar
rive from Philadelphia within half nn hour.
Colonel Blunt has just diiven down to the
train to meet him. There will probably bo
no change during the night ns
the sinking spells usually como on
in the daj time. The action of the heart is so
rapid that moro blood is forced Into the
heart than can bo acrcatcd , hcnco the con
gestion and subsequent hemorrhage. The
general's diet is confined almost exclusively
to pcptonlzcd milk , which docs not give the
strength required to combat the disease.
Mldnight- These waiting at tlio bedside of
General Sherman are expecting the spark of
life to die out at any moment. All the hope
and chccifulness which marked Sunday has
gone , and instead of hope and life , It Is des
pair and death. Mr . Sheridan , who has
been a constant attendant , beats every Indi
cation of hopelessness. The brave woman
realizes that there is no hope and that her
gallant husband is surely passing away.
When the attack came on to day ,
it came without the premonitory symp
toms which have usually manifested
themselves. It wns sudden and
it vvasby the most stienotis clToits that the
break in the tlncad of life was prevented.
The general had an hcmouhago which
showed that his lungs in e in a much worse
condition than has been admitted. Masses
of coagulated blood of a dark color \vero ex
pelled fiom the lungs and the sands of lifo
seemed fast ebbing away. In spite of iiis
weak condition and the sapping of his con
stitution by his mllltaiy excitlons ho rallied
at the last moment when the 6aso seemed
lost , and just as ilia troops weio led from
hopeless defeat in the old dajs , so did his
determination to defeat disease ovoi power
the conqueror once again. But it
was but the rally of a forlorn
hopo. Ho can not win. Ho must succumb.
To day the nurse from Baltimore , the faith
ful Sister of Clmi ity who has been constantly
at bis side , was compelled to give up , and
she was relieved by another fioin that place.
Father Chappclle , of St. Matthew's church ,
has been at ttio house all evening. He Is
still theic and ready to administer the last
rites of the church. LVciiono has given up

dictions have not been boinoout those pres
ent to day say that the end is cci talnly
near , ana that nothing but a miracle can save
Theie was nn exciting two houis session of
the house to imv in which the republicans
scored telling points against the democrats
on pension legiilation. The first Monday in
each month is individual suspension day ,
when it is in order for individual mombcis to
move a suspension of the rules and set upon
their passages measures which they may call
up. The republicans in caucus seveial dajs
ago , agreed that Mr. Merrill , of Kansas , who
is a member of the committee on invalid pen
sions , should have the recognition of their
side of the house to day for the purpose of
calling up the dependent pension bill which
iccently passed the senate. When the house
met Mr. Mills was the first to bo iccognizcd
under the rule , and ho presented n
resolution pioviding special ouleis
for seven committees , a day to each one ,
when they might call tfp any measures
selected and p'aco them upon their passage.
Tlio resolution did not piovidofor any pen
sion legislation , and the icpublicans inquired
whether in the event they permitted the
passage of this icsolution a man on then-
side of the lioaso would bo recognized to call
up u bill. The democrats know who the
icpublicans wanted recognized and for what
purpose. They refusoi to commit them
selves before the consideration of the reso
lution , and the icpublicans icfuscd to bo
duiwn into the trap. They demanded
iccogiiition or a promise of it , and the chair
icfuscd to recogul/a any icpublican , even to
make mi Inquiry. It was nfiaid that after
recognizing. ! lepubllcan member ho would
call up a pension bill. It was a bleach of
courtesy which was unprecedented , and
which put the republicans on their metal.
There was instantly a dead lock , A cull of
the house was demanded and the republicans
refused to vote , le iving the house without
n quorum , when Mr Mills was compelled to
withdraw his resolution and there was an
immediate adjournment. Behind the propo
sition picsented by Mills theio is u trick and
a scheme. Two 01 three days ago it was re
ported that Mr. Kamtnll , who is a member of
the committee on mles , would vote in favor
of a resolution introduced by Johnston , of
Indiana , fixing a day for consideration of the
bill repot ted by Mutson to repoit tlio limita
tion of in carages of jmnsions net. Tlio de
sign of Mills was to make a flank movement
against any icport of this kind fiointhocom-
mittcoon rules. If lie could secuio the
passage of his resolution fixing special otdois
for the conhiOeiatioii of all impoitant demo-
ciatie measures , his paity could uflord , ho
believed , to antagonize any ic-port made by
the committee on lules , and if ho succeeded
in seeming the passugo of his lesolutlon
them would not have lemulned the slightest
chance for pension legislation in this con
gress. Keimbllcans say they do not pioposo
to permit j If they can help It , special orders
to bo made for any measure unless pensions
are provided for. Tho.v will permit the de
bate on tlio tariff bill to proceed to-morrow
and w ill delay no legislation except where
an ettoi t is made to set n day for special sub
jects The republicans have forced the dem
on ats by their proceedings today to admit
that they are opposed to all kinds of pension
An ngicement has been reached whereby n

for the interest he took in the passage of the
bill lev iving the rank of gencial of the
army. Mr Doisey and General Sheridan
have been intimate friends over siiuo the
war , and tlio former bus woiked faithfully
for tno revival of the rank of general since
the letirement of General Shermanbelieving
It was due to the man w ho is now promoted.
