[ 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 , DIXiailINO IN CHUIION TOXCS 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 3 * * 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 TIUT 1II.UXB WAS lNnVITAIirB. 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 always 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. SIIHUMIN IS bTlLI. IN Till !

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.

"Ulaino must come , " said bis friends , "as a necessity or not ntall. " Mi-Klnlcy made n manly speech , demanding that in Justice to himself hlsnamo should not bo mentioned in the balloting again. Tlio morning session opened at 10:18. : Chairman Cstco called on Senator Warner nor Miller of New York to preside. TIIK rouiiTii IUU.OT was then proceeded with. The vote proceeded slowly.

After the second billet had been taken Governor Foster of Ohio moved a recess until 4 o'clock this afternoon and his motion was seconded by Dufllold of Virginia. On behalf of Now Jersey Senator Sowoll demanded manded n roll call , which was immediately proceeded with. When Missouri was reached in the call of states it was so evident that the motion would carry that Senator Sowoll of Now Joraoy , withdrew his demand for a call and the con volition adjourned until 4 o'clock.

Afternoon Session CONVENTION IUi.1 , , Cinoioo , Juno 23.- [ Speclal Telegram to TIIK HBI.J At4 o'clocl 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 lirst ballot has created an excitement oven greater than the disclosure of the Harrison combine of last nl0ht. Tlio gavel calls tc order again and again , but tlio delegates arc evidently flghtini : for time. The California delegation looks serene. Chuuney M. Popov walka quietly in and shakes hands with sev eral friends before Boating himself. Hi smiles complacently and strokes his chin u- ho'dwaita the call of state i for the llfth bal lot. Ohio and Pennsylvania are mixed up it conference and Indiana la canvassing witli Allison. The pivot falls nnd the first state la called , when General King of Maryland rises am ! roars out a motion tliat tlio convention take r recess until 10 o'clock on Monday. There is great confusion , amid which several dele gates shout for a call of states on the motion and as many inoro si-cond the motion. The audience tostitlles its disapproval by cries ol "No , no , " und appluuso of tlio delegations voting "nay. " Hut opposition is vain. The nuti-Hlmiio forces , witli the exception of the Hairlson men , vote solidly for adjournment and are joined by California und a score ol other Hlalno delegates. After the shortest session on record the convention takas a re cess until Monday , mid the disappointed tiudi- cnco moves slowly from the building. The great convention is to cater on its second wcok to the grout advantage of the hotel men , the saloons , the restaurants and the street faklrc , and to the unutterable disgust of everyone not personally mtenutod in the maroaso of his bank account or tha buocoss of any individual candidate.V. .

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 didates nomination and show their full strength. IS lUiAIM-fr-UI- ? A Conrcrcncoof LenderKecoimnends 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.

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.

" 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 MeKinley. 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 wh.ch all the gentlemen named in the previous re port of Iho meeting were present wilh the exception of Senator Hoar.

At , a meeting of the Now York delcR.ition to-night that state , by a vote (55 ( to 7 , de cided to vote for Hlnfno on Monday.

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 Mur.it 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.

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.

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 notice to quit berved on her und In a few months the masons will bo set to demolish the dead master's homo and replace it by a garden.

Moreover , the bride and bridegroom had not resided the legal fortnight In the weilding district. Judgment is exported noxtwcck. 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 tion nt the chnigcs against them , but they have made u painful sensation. WITH UOYAL SPLRNDOU.
