[ Special Telegram to Tun UCB. ] The polit
ical halledoseopo has been given two violent
turns during the last twenty-four hours. At
midnight both Sherman and Allison wcro
confident of holding the key to tlio situation.
rtlie Harrison stampede had apparently been
tt limped out. Senator Cameron had wired
bis friends to turn to Allison the moment
Sherman was out of the race , and many of
his friends had assured the Iowa manager of
their fealty1 A railroad president , modified
nt his defeat , combined witnthclilnlncltcsof
of the Pacific coast to entirely ehnngo the
situation between midnight nnd 4 o'clock
this morning. Dcpuw announced that neither
Allison or Sherman need expect lyiy votes
from Now York. This was the first damper.
The second came with the visit of the Pacific
delegates ,
that neither Allison nor Sherman nor Harrison
risen could carry California or Nevada.
Their votes on the Chinese question were
brought up and Harrison was singled out fern
n still more vicious protest , lie was charged
with ilot only voting against tha exclusion ol

the Chinese , but with voting to naturalise
the half-mongrels. Meanwhile came the
news that Ohio was weakened and
that twenty votes of the delegation
were waiting on call of the Ulaino leaders.
Harrison's friends , however , professed con-
lidcnce until after the second ballot of this
morning when his strength was so plainly
exhausted that even the Hossiers thiew up
the spougo. When recess was taken until
afternoon the sentiment was
There wcro scenes of suppressed excite
ment in the hotels and lobbies. Every Ulaino
man were n cheerful smile. Many of his
opponents lost courage. If the convention
had met at 2 o'clock when the announcement
was made that New York was prepared to
throw her seventy-two votes for the plumed
knight , nothing apparently could have pre
vented his nomination. I saw Chauncey M.
Depow entering the auditorium just bftforo 4
o'clock and heard him say , "Mr. Uliilno will
bo nominated by acclamation on the first
afternoon ballot. " So thought every ono ,
but thcio wns n hurried canvassing among
the delegates. The Siicrman men had
secured a dispatch from the senator that ho
preferred defeat to retreat. Allison had
wired that ho did not consider his case hope
less , and the ridiculous boomer * hoped tc
capture n few more voles If delay could be
secured. Thcio was oven divided councils
among the 131alno men themselves. The
shrewdness of the managers , who have
ADVisnn A roi.iov or WKAUINO OUT
the other candidates , Joined in the movement
for adjournment. 1 cannot see in the recess
nn nntt-Hlnlno success. If the opponents of
Mr. nialno had believed themselves able to
defeat him they would have made the Issue
then nnd there. California voted for moro
time , nnd though Creed Hammond claims
that it was done under a misunderstanding
of what Now York desired , there was toe
much method in the madness. For several
bouts after the delegates had returned to thu
hotels the iiiitl-Iiluluo men claimed triumph ,
but they liavo been singing lower this even
ing and they face thn herculean task of find
ing a compromise candidate. Thu attempt to
ereato a McKlnloy boom has been persistent
to-night , but at the present writing it has
not been crowned with suo.-ess.
Ho claims tha loyalty of his friends untill
the end. No one believes that ho will be
nblo to hold the Ohio delegation far another
ballot , but oven in the case of a split thcro is
the ( lory Forakor to bo taken into considera
tion. To-night Forakcr , whoso fidelity to
Sherman has always been questioned , is
enid by Ohio men to liavo twenty votes to
turn over to lilulno booner than permit
McKlnloy to secure a homo Indorsement.
Wisconsin and New York stand ready to
give McKiuley a united support and are
working hard to bring his name to the front
in the conferences which will bo held be
tween now and Monday , but the Hlnlno
forces stand prepared to use the sumo dub
en Mi'Kink-y which have proved bo effective
on the other candidates.

the great convention hall Is again packed t <
suffocation , There is a roar of conversation
in the galleries , which is only slightly more
suppreised among the delegates. The icpor
that Now York will throw to Ulaino on tin

greater than the disclosure of the Harrison
combine of last nl0ht. Tlio gavel calls tc
order again and again , but tlio delegates arc

and as many inoro si-cond the motion. The
audience tostitlles its disapproval by cries ol
"No , no , " und appluuso of tlio delegations

session on record the convention takas a re
cess until Monday , mid the disappointed tiudi-
cnco moves slowly from the building. The

.ttiico on the purl of the Caitfuinta deltga-
tlon In managing Hlaluo's interests on tlio
floor of the convention. Through the efforts
of the leaders in the party nnd the nblo mnn-
ngcmcntof the Cnliforninns wo Imvo so sup
pressed the Hlnlno movement In the conven
tion ns to cause no friction or 111 feeling on
the part of any of the other candidates.
Their tactics have been , so they clnlm ,
in keeping with the feelings of Hlalno
ns represented hero by his frio ml s.
It was Ulnlno's deslro that every candidate
who had been working for months to secure
the great prize of the presidential nomina
tion .should hnvo a fair show on the floor of
the convention and not have to combat
Ululne's great strength and popularity. In
deference to these wishes tlio managers of
the California delegation when the conven
tion first inct sought out other Ulaino delega
tions aud Hlulnc men , mid with n great
effort secured the acquiescence of the
majority of them to vote for other candi
dates ns long as any of them had any show.
That this was done Is evidenced by some of
the most peculiar roll calls over known in n
national convention. Hut nvo states cast
solid bnllols continuously , the others being
split up , and ono delegation ( Dakota ) gave
each candidate lu nomination ouo
vote and Filler two , thereby
rousing great amusement to tlioso
who know the mcnningof tlio move. Hlnino's
imumgcis now think that the time has como
for them to assort themselves. The claim to
have given all the other candidates an oppor
tunity to secure the nomination. The con
vention has been balloting since yesterday
morning , and they think it has been clearly
demonstrated that neither Sherman ,
Grcsham , Harrison , Allison or Alger hnvo
the faintest chance. So at the next session
of the convention it is confidently expected
that the Ulalne men will demand their can

Two XanicH Voe Votes.
Ciucvoo , Juno 2:1. : The conference com
mittee met at the Grand Pacific last night
and remained in session until nearly 4 o'clock
this morning , assembled immediately after
adjournment this morning at the Grand I'a-
eiflc hotel. There wns n largo representa
tion of representatives of the Al-
gcr , Ulaine , Allison , Sherman nnd
Hawley foioes. This meeting wns originally
called lor the purpose of defeating the Harrison
risen movement. To day they really did not
know the object of their meeting , as Harri
son had been practically defeated by tlio ad
journment yesterday. However , after va-
rsous speakers had addressed the meeting
upon'the impossibility of nominating any
man but Hhiino , they appointed a commlttae
to take the situation into consideration and
to present a conference committee ticket
which , if the members saw lit , they would report
port back to tholr delegations with the rec
ommendation that"they support it. A com-
mittco of ten was appointed representing the
different factions , consisting of Colonel Davis
and Senator Farwcll in behalf of Greshnm ,
M. II. Do Young for the Hlamo movement ,
Congressman Hubbell nnd Clnrkson for
Allison , Mr. Dufllcld for Alger , and
Governor Foster and Ucnjamiu Uuttcrworth
for Shciman. The conference then ad
journcd until 2'JO : and the committee imme
diately went into session , notifying Senators
Hoar and Quay to be picscnt. Senator Quay
didn't immediately put in nn appearance.
The first action taken was by Senator Far-
well , who , after complimenting Judge Grcsli-
nm said for the sake of harmony ho would
withdraw his nn'mo.
Governor Foster then addressed the meet
ing in behalf of Sherman as the ablest man
the committee could report in favor of. At
the conclusion of Governor Foster's remarks
Mr. Diillleld addressed the committee in fa
vor of General Alger.
Mr. Clarkson was then called up
on and ho very strongly urged
the claims of Senator Allison.
M. II. Do Young being called on stated to
the committee that ho thought they were not
thcio to listen to the praises of the different
candidates , but to decide upon a man thai
wns the most available and who would carry
the country for the party ; that a better plan
would bo to examine into the merits ami de
merits of the different candidates. Do Young
stnted that the objections urged by tno rcp-
rebcntntivcs from the Pacific coast to two or
throe of the candidates , suiting forth their
weaknesses , nnd concluded by saying that
thcro wns no necessity of setting forth tlio
claims and availability of Hlaine , as every
body was lee well nequninled with him to
require time.
At this moment Senator Quay came into
tlio room. Ho stated to the committee that
New York bad decided to Mippoit Ulaino
and ho could not see how the nomination of
Hlaino could possibly bo avoided. Ho felt
that the majority of the convention would bo
in favor of it. The chairman , Senator Fur-
well , stated that in any event it was the duly
of tlio committee to recommend thu niimo of
some candidate for the conterunto to support
as body , and the name of Congressman Mc
Kinley of Ohio , was proposed. The commit
tee was polled as to BOIIIO of the candidates ,
and by n largo majority decided that Slier
man was out of the light ; that Hlamo being
a possibility with tlio convention it was the
duty of the cpmmltleo to endeavor to select
somebody outside of Hlaine , and that ho
oughl not to bo considered by this commit
tee. The result of this was a protracted dis
cussion. An attempt wns mudo to euteehiso
the representatives as to tlieirsecond chance.
Mr. Dullleld , manager of the Alger forces ,
was asked who his delegation would buppoit
in the event General Al cr was out of the
way , to which ho replied , Hlaine. The same
question was put to Du Young , who Hinted
that his position was dilTuient from that of
any gentleman. His delegation wan support
ing a candidate who , in his opinion , would bo
nominated. Therefore it was ridiculous to
ask him to name u becond choice , especially
In view of Iho fact lhat the candidates rep
resented by tlu ) memucrs of Iho
commltteo wcro nil practically out
of the race. At this st.igo of the
proceedings Senator Hoar addressed the
im'cling und said that Ulaino was very deal-
to tlio people of Mubsachiihottb ; % thut they
thought very highly of him , and that ho
could undoubtedly curry his Ktato. Con
gressman MeKinley could also carry It if ho
was placed at Iho head of the ticket. The
Ohio delegation , through Governor Foster
and General Hutlorwoitli refused to con
sider Sherman out of the light.
Hepcntcd ballots wcro taken. On the
fouith ballot in the commencement no one
candidate received over three votes. After
repeated balloting MeKinloy received 7
votes. The chairman , Mr. Fnrwull , turned
to Mr. Do Young and nsked film if ho would
recommend his delegation lo support MeKin
ley and ho replied Hint ho would not ; that
his delegnliou had declared for the man who
now hold the majority of votes in the con
vention , and it would bo simply ridiculous
to ask them when they had won their
light to rofufto nt that moment
to vote fur him. There was n
great deal of discussion and sorno that
favored MeKinley now objocti d to reporting
him to the conference. Mr IJunlcId said
that if they icported uMimu It ought to boone
ono strong enough to beat Hlainu , which
MeKinloy could not do. Another delegate
stated that this morning McKlulcy hud
practically p'need himself in the same
position as Hlalno when ho got up on a chair
In the ran vent lou and stated that ho was not
a candidate for the jnoaldi-iu-y. After some
more discussion it was final ! v decided to re
port two numos to the confidence , and the
socoud name chosen was A Ills-oil. The com-
milieu then adjourned to icjiort to the con-
Icruncc. Whan the coufeiom'e had to some

Ilns Grcslmin Withdrawn Will Ohio
Go to McKlntev ?
CiittMoo. Junn 2.1. Among the many
rumors of withdrawn ! } this evening , none
obtained nioro ready credence thnn Iho ono
which announced the retirement of Judge
Gresham from the contest. Senator Fur-
well chairman of the Illinois delegation , was
seen this evening nnd questioned concerning
the rumor. Ho said ! "You can sny for me ,
nnd I think for the entire delegation , thnt
Judpo Grcsham has notwitlidrawn nnd Hint
no such move is in contbmplntion , Wo shnll
enter the convention Monday morning ns
ready to vole for him as over , and any re
ports contrary to this are false. "
" \Vili \ | llicro bo any defection from the
stales oulsidc of Illinois 1"
"Nono that wo heard of. You can sny that
'wo have Just begun n tight and consequently
nro not qulto ready to quU ! 1 know of no
contingency which would causa Illinois to de
sert its present candidate. "
State Senator Clark , who Is n delegatc-at-
larpc , reiterated what had been said by Sen
ator Fnrwcll. At the same time ho admitted
that in case of n break Illinois would bo
nearly evenly divided between Ulnlnc nnd
Congressman Uuttorworth wns questioned
concerning Hie rumor that Sonntor Sherman
might be withdrawn. "Wo liavo heard that
BO often we don't feel like refuting It any
longer. There is absolutely nothing in it.
Wo will bo on hand Monday ns wo have
been heretofore. "
"Will McKinley bo the second choice of
the Ohio delegation ! "
"The reason for answering that question
has not yet arisen. McKlnly would rather
be taken homo dead than have it believed
that ho had betrayed the trust reposed in
him by Stmntor Sherman , Wo don't propose
to liavo tlio convention of 1SSO repeated If wo
can help It. MeKinley is not a candidate
as long as Sherman is in Iho field ,
and has so expressed himself before Iho con
vention. "
"Would not Ohio prefer him to any other
man ! "
"McKinley has a host of fncnds'ninongour
delegation who arc for him provided Sher
man is not n candidate , "
"Could n condition arise Hint would cause
Ohio to go for him for second choice i"
"Yes , the withdrawal of Sherman. "
"Is Is true that Governor Foraker is ready
to desert the Sherman banner for lhat of
Hlainc , nnd Hint ho will sever the delegation
for Hlaine on Monday ! "
"As I liavo not seen' Governor Foraker I
could not say , but I am pcparcd to sny there
is nothing in it. "
At midnight Ulnine's managers are very
confident that their candidate will be nomi
nated on the second ballot taken on Monday.
Tl oy say , however , tljat they arc in no hurry
about it as thov nrc sUre Hint the result they
desire will bo brought about cvcntfnlly.
The sub-commltteo appointed by the con-
fereneo of the frlendsiof the different candi
dates hold another meptiiiK to-night at
all the gentlemen named in the previous re
port of Iho meeting were present wilh the

was fully discussed but nothing of import

of n commltteo of two to confer with the
New York delegation and report to tbo committee -
mitteo to morrow afternoon.

Tlis Fiery Toituucd Orator Is Done
With iTohh Sherman.
Cincvoo , Juno 23. Notwithstanding ef
forts to the contrary on the part of that wing
of the Ohio delegation led by Congressman
Hultcrworth and ox-Governor Foster , tlio
principal topic of conversation to-night was
the rumor that Sherman had withdrawn from
the contest and instructed his friends to cast
the vote of Ohio for MeKinloy. It was said
on tno best authority that Halstcud
hud been in telegraphic communication with
the Ohio candidate in which the
latter had been asked to withdraw
his name nnd that ho had compl'cd with
the request In a/lispatch lo tlio Cincinnati
editor and asked that MeKinloy bo sup
polled. The alleged recipient of this im
portant telegram and the gentleman above
named deny the reception of any such with
drawal nnd Insist that Sherman is still in
tbo field.
Governor Foraker was called upon by a
representative ol the Associated press and
submitted to an interview , with the follow
ing result : "I don't wish to bo placed In
an anamolous position before the people of
Ohio or the country , but am compelled
to say in view of existing conditions
that Sherman is no longer a presidential pos
sibility so far as the convention is concerned.
I liavo done my full duty to him in his candi
dacy. 1 liavo been ns faithful , if not more so ,
and equally us conscientious us immv mem
bers of the delegation to further his and
Ohio's interests. Hut , as I s ly , ho is practi
cally out of tlio question , nnd my support
ceases from now on. There is almost .10
per cent of my delegation who nro
for Hlnlno nnd wlien the convention meets
Monday I shall vote with these dole-gates lor
Hlaino's nomination. I insist it is the bent , ol
good politics that wo tuku care of our state
when it becomes apparent that our own can
didate cannot bo nominated. 1 um n free
limco from now on and shall take care of
Ohio's interests now as I have nlwaj s done
In the past. As to whether tlio remainder
of the Ohio delegation will adhere to
Sherman I cannot siy. but I don't
Ix-liovo they will. Thov may for the first
ballot , but of their course after that I am un
able to speak "
"How about the candidacy of MoKinloy i"
"I don't buliovo McKmloy is.\ut in business
for himself. Ho .s for Sherman. "
"Will you support McKinley in case ho becomes
comes Ohio's candidate ! "
"I will have to see McKlnloy first , nnd before
fore Ohio presents him ns its enmlidato I
will bo IUTHIm ! with a suggestion perhaps. "
"You are absolutely positive that you will
not support Sherman on Monday. "
' I can toll you that I hnvo had the hardest
possible tnno to hold tha Hlamo ( dement of
the delegation back. The.\ insisted on voting
for Ulaino during the last ballots takenbut 1
insisted thai wo do our duty by Sherman.
Wo liavo done so , and now I shall bo with
them. I am also prepared to say that if a
ballot had been taken to-duy the vote would
have been as I liavo Indicated it will bo on
Monday. "
The representative of the Associated Press
called upon ox-Governor Foster and inter
viewed him concerning the status of
the Ohio delegation in relation to
the vote to be cast on Mon
day. Mr. Foster said : "Wo were
Just counting noses und I thing everything is
all right. Tlio delegation will continue to
vote for Sherman. If thcro nro nny votes
for Illume they wrn't amount to nn.thinir .
simply a matter of about eight votes. Wo
have a few Hlaine men among us , but unJer
an agreement signed by the delegates thai
Ihero will bo no ch.mgo of candidates unless
n majority of the delegation so decides.
That's- why I don't believe thcro will uo nny
defection , "

Wednesday when ho expelled those French
journalists. Viewed from a distance tlio in

bo expected to cause a fuss , all , including the
victims , are inclined to make light of it. The

a reason for international complications.

The American admirers of J. F , Millets
learned borne time ago with satisfaction that
an American , committee , headed by the
agent of Mr. Walker , of Haltimore , had ar
ranged to purchase the great painter's cot-
tagoat iiiirbuon. The original idea was to
buy Millets' homo nnd btudlo , allowing Mine ,
Milletts to reside in it throughout her life
time and afterwards preserve it an a museum
and memento of tlio inimitable painter. The
real value of the place with the gardens at
tached is about 5,000 francs. Walter offered
2(1,000 ( francs , but seeing ho had to do with
Americans the owner of the cottage , a re
tired marchund du vin , hold out for 85,00. )
francs. This exhorbitant demand having
been rejected the landlord has determined to
demolish the house. Mnio. Millutts Iras had

of the contracting parties , nnd Sarah had

bride and bridegroom had not resided the

The resignation of the doctors attached to
Sir Richard Wallace's English hospital has
been followed by n pretty little professional
scandal. It has leaked out that several
cases treated ul the hospital have been
shamefully neglected , while in other cases
the chances of the patients' recovery have
been lessoned by grave blunders. For ex
ample , a patient suffering with pleurisy ,
with nn accretion of pus , had been left HO
long without surgical intervention that ho
died. In another case a , poisoned wound
was allowed to lead to blood poisoning nnd
death , while in n third n man afllictcd with
severe pleurisy was treated for mild
cmplupcina. Dr. Allan Herbert and other
consulting physicians profess great Indigna

UnnuN , Juno S3. The opening of the
reichbtag Monday promises to bo a magnifi
cent function , worthy of tlio supremo" im
portance of the occasion. The emperor has
personally revised the programme nnd given
directions for nn elaborate ceremonial , such
ns for special splendor nnd brilliancy has
not attended the opening ot tlio rcltchs-
tug since the Jlrst session of that
body in March , 1S71. All the Gorman
federal princes have been invited to attend.
The regent of Bavaria , king of Saxony ,
Prince William of Wurtcmburg and the
grand dukes of Bndcn and Hesse will bo
present. The canopy and hangings of the
throne are of silk of n golden color. The
canopy will be surrounded by imperial
eagles and crowns. The emperor will
enter surrounded by the icigiiing federal
sovereigns aud princes of the royal blood.
The emperor having taken his seat on
the throne , the federal princes and horcditary
princes will station themselves on a dias on
the right bide of the omneror and the princes
of blood and other princes to the left. The
ompress.wjll bp seated on a dias before the
emporor/WBen the members of the imperial
family are placed Count Von Moltko will
propose three cheers for the emperor.
Thereupon Prince Bismarck will present the
manuscript of the speech from the throne to
the emperor , who will proceed to read it.
According to n semi-ofllcial forecast of the
speech the emperor will explicitly declaro'his
desiio to pursue a pence policy nnd will say
that conscious of the responsibilities of his
position ho will follow in the footbtcps of his
grandfather nnd father , and devote his life
to the welfare of the people , trusting to
maintain tlio unity ol Germany without re
course to arms. A communication in the
Frcmdeublatt indicates that a spcciilc refer
ence will oo made to the alliance in n declara
tion that the policy , in tlio carrying out of
which Austria is closely identiiicd with Ger
many , will bo maintained In its full integrity.
After the ceremony a court dinner will bo
given at which nil of the royalties and lead
ing diplomats will bo present.
The opening of the lantng on Wednesday
will also bo celebrated with considerable
pomp in tlio white hall where the emperor
will take the oath to uphold the Prussian
constitution. The coronation of the emperor
will take place at Konigsberg on October 18.
About ttio same time the autumn military
maneuvers will bo opened on an extensive
scale , culminating in fetes nt Konlgsberg in
celebration of the accession of the new
monarch , when William will crown himself
and his consort king and queen of Prussia.
These and other preliminary labors of his
reign , stretching far into autumn , are hold
to bo important factors in retarding an , ouU
break of war. Prince Bismarck is making
arrangements for a meeting between ICm-
peror William and Kmpuror Francis Joseph
and King Humbert. The Crown Prince of
Austini will come to Berlin in August.

to see the abbey by moonlight , Uluino went
not to seethe lovelv sight , but romaiucd
writing away as fast as his pen could go.
When the others bad long gone to rest n
light still illuminated the room of the

the Malno tnnn's vigil boded no ono can say
as yet , but his looks this morning nnd his
pro-occupied manner told of his deep thought
and labor over night.
Caineeio hovcicd around and hurried the
party aboard. In his hand was a pnekatto of

makes him the pioneer of the party. Mrs.
Carnegie , as usual looked pretty , cheerful
and animated. She was dressed in a senslblo
homo spun striped dress and black coat/ncxt
