The democrats of the IIOUSD who seemed so
anxious lo exptoss their I chef that Harrison
will be defeated in November , now that they
have had tlmo to think over the situation , nro
not so brash In their predictions as they
were on Monday. They have begun to
realize that the republican ticket Is an cx-
coGdmirly strong ono In many essential par
ticulars , and an editorial which appears in
to-day's New York Sun has not served to
allay their feats in the slightest degree. The
Sun po ut.s out that Hlaino and Logan car
ried states that yielded them lb'4
clcctorial votes In 1SSI. It also
calls attention to the fact that
thu democrats lost Indiana In IS O by3a.'l
votes , and that the Hfteon votes of Indiana ,
addeil to the votes of the slnto carried by
Hluinc and Logan , woulel leave Harrison and
Moi Ion within four votes of the number re
quired to elect. It also calls attention to the
fact that the vote in Connecticut has always
been leniarkubly close , anil that the prohibi
tion vote there , which was moio than Iho
democratic majority lit ls > 4 , is likely to fall
bacu Into the republican column , and that
tlio stale on Ihe tariff issue is cjuile likely to
go u republican. The Sun concludes
its editorial in these words : "It will
not do for the democrats to umlcrrnto
the political importance of the llnirison and
Morton ticket. Wlulo Its nomination makes
Indiana and Connecticut , from This tnno on ,
the veiitablo battle ground , New York is not
withdiawn Irom tlio question ; for while it is
absolutely indisponsible to the SMCecss of
Cleveland ami Thuimanits loss would by no
means deprive the lopubbeans of their
chance , or render the light hopeless lor
them. They won the election of isiis without
New York and mlu'lit be able to do it again.
Underlying tins all is the lact that General
Harrison , bUe General Garllcld , is an Ohio
man , a native of Iho Buekc'yo stale , mid that
Moi Ion , like Aitliur , the ) > i evidential noiin-
neeot isso , isti New Yorker , indeed. The
republican ticket of Isss , has mum points of
resemblance to iho republican ticket of ls > o ,
and all democrats well remember the latter
event. About Ihe best thing which tlio dem
ocrats of the doubtful states can now do is to
cease contemplating the weakness of the
ticket which their opponents put up , and to
dovelopo what strength and stability nppei-
tmiis t ) their own. "
'J he Sun editorial has not served to tin ill
the democrats in Washington with hikrity.
Few ot them aio followers of the Sun's pe
culiar tenets but they are all willing to ad
mit that the editorial in question is founded
on good sense , anel that , it shows the true
situation in its real light , and although this
is not in accordance with their ideas of what
it should be , they aio all constrained to ad
mit that the advice is we'll timed , and that
they must do something more than sit still
und point out thu weaic places in the ropub
Mean ticket if thc > y arc to win
m the light which has just opened
Republicans are mowing moio eonlldent
evoty day , and while they wore not all
enthusiastic Hinnson men at the start , they
believe' , and with unml reason , that iho ticket
has nil that character which will grow in
populaiily , and that the tune when the ticket
is in its weakest slngo is at the beginning of
the i ontost , with every prospect oi gaming
strength day by day.

There was a gieat deal of difficulty en-
couiitereu in reaching a conclusion in the at
tempt last night to orgam/e the democratic
national committee. Mr. Barnum Hist re
fused to bo chairman mid then it was ex
tended to Heproscnlativo Scott of Pennsyl
vania. Ho stated that be would positively
not rive up his tnno to publics tin * summer ,
ns hu would hu\o to look alter his business
and affairs in his own district Then Colonel
Brueof Ohio was begged to take the chaii-
imiiishipinul hellatlj le-fuse I even to consider
it. The c mii'iUeo was in a dilemma , and
and again tin nod to Mr. Barnum and told
him that ho must , lake the chairmanship ;
that nobody competent would accept it , aim
that it was a duty ho owed to his party.
Finally Mi. Bamum , with rcluctancy , ac
cepted the position , and the affairs of the
pint y will Lc connoted in libS on the plan
that they were four years ago. Senator Got-
inmi. of Maryland , will apain be chaiiman of
the executive or campaign committee.

Anticipating the adjournment of congress ,
membeis of both parties say the discassiou
in the Iiouso to-day on the question of limit
ing the tariff debate bear ) moro than ordi
nary mteiosl. The republicans flatly refuse
lo lix a date when the debate shall close mid
a Ilnal vote be taken on the Mills bill. They
also gavn the democrats to understand that
they do not propose to olfer a hubstiluto bill.
Ueinoci.its say that this moans that the re-
pubheans do not believe there w-i'l ' bo any
action in the senate on Iho subject of tarilt
dining the present sossiou. In puna ol fact
the iironos.tion of.lucUe Kelly to postpone
f m tin rncUoii on ttie Mills bill till the next
session of congress so as to allow fie
people of iho country lo puss judgment omit
at Ihe jo'ls in \vtnber , indieuU's clouly
that the republicans do not bolieyei there will
be any Haul action at this session. After the
ropuhlirunr icfuhtd lo limit debate on the
b'lt ' on Ihe ground Unit tbuy bud no voice in
the compilation of the muasuru m c munition
and their constituents can only be lioird
through Iho pre-sont piociss. there was a
good deal of talk about when confess is
likely lo adjourn. The general bulicfia that
the veto will bv ? taken on the Mills bill about
tin ) last week m July. It will then go to the
Konato committee on Hnanco , mid there is
litllo piospcct that It will bo repot ted in time
for action in Iho tfonato during Uio present
session. Them is a grow ing nervousness , on
the ii.ii t of member.s on both sides lo get out
of Washington mid to tticir constituents.
The weather is extiemoly warm mid tlio
campaign is rapidly opening. From the best
opinions to bo gleaned now it looks as though
congress would Hnally adjourn about the 10th
or 1Mb of August.

'WASHISOTON , Juno y' . [ Special to Tin :
-Ir.n. | Ono ol tlio most widely known demo
cratic members of the house told mo the
other day , how It came that Inter State Com-
nissloncr William U. Morrison went out into
Illinois and Indiana and worked with so much
vigor , apparently in direct opposition to the
spirit and letter of the civil service law ,
igainst the nomination of Pension Commis
sioner John C. lihirk for the vice presidency.
It will bo remembered that a short time be
fore the St. Louis convention , mid while
Colonel Morrison was in Illinois whooping It
up for Grav and Jumping on to Hhtck , that
some friends ot the latter went to President
Cleveland and complained npiinst the pro
ceedings. They thought that Morrison was
treating lilnck unfairly , mid that ho was violating
lating the civil service reform pahcy of the
administration in leaving his ofllcial duties
mid participating offensively in politics. The
president pretended not to know nn.\ thing
about cither the whereabouts or work of
Colonel Morrison , mid said that in the ab
sence of any oflleial information on the sub
ject he had no power or desire to take action ,
"I have it , " said this democratic member of
Iho house , "fiom the most direct mid reliable
soui ccs , that President Cleveland not only
know where Colonel Moirisoa was , ami
what ho was doing to defeat the nomination
of General Hlaok , but could have anticipated
everything that Morrison did , and everyplace
he visited , because Monison wascirrymgout
the instructions of the president. I do not
say that Morrison received Ins instructions
fiom the lips of the president , because the
chief executive is too smart to do that , but ho
convoyed to Colonel Morrison Ins dcsnes on
the subject ol ISeneral Black and the vicj
presidency , and Morrison was deputed to
bring about the defeat of his colleague. "
"The president's dislike to General Ulack , "
continued the member , "came from n ic-
markablo and , viewed in one light , rather
ludicrous incident. It came from an nulis-
ci eet observation made by Mrs. Black. Some
months ago Mrs Black was talking to a
friend about General Black and the vice
presidential nomination , when she obsoned
that she hoped General Black would be nom
inated , because the prospects were that
President Cleveland would not live loiifr , ami
General Black ns vice piesidont would suc
ceed to the chief executive. This lemark
went directly to the eais of Mr. Cleveland ,
and ho resolved at once to defeat General
Black's nomination for the vice presidency.
He did not want a man on the ticket with
him who expected to see him peg out , and
who would bo constantly on the anxious
bench wait'tig for a promotion. The president
told one of bis advisors , who is n member of
the house , and known to the people at largo ,
that Black must not be nominated , and that
the machinery must bo brought into instant
acquisition to put him on the sbclf. This
member went to Colonel Morrison and laid
the whole matter befoie him. Morrison docs
not like Black for several reasons , principal
among which is the fact that Black is Morri
son's i mil m Illinois politics , and the lact
that ho has bent handicapping Morrison in
procuring spoils for the democrats of
Illinois. The piesident knew that Moriison
would go into the work with not only a prtdo
inspired by the wish expressed by the chief
executive , but with a personal pride at down
ing his rivt.l. The prcsule-nt argued well.
Morrison took his msti notions , went out into
Indian-land began woiking for Gray. The
president and Morrison and other men closely
connected \ \ ith the administration at that
time thought that Giayas the most availa
ble man \\iUi which to Black.
"The Hist thing that Moinson did to handi
cap black was to become a candidate for the
nomination himself. Then General Steven
son , Hist assistant postmaster general , who
was also in the sc beine to a more or. less de
gree , IK u candidate. This made three
vice aspirants in ono state , and
tins lact alone did a great deal to complicate
affairs and put Black beyond the palo of the
possibilities of nomination.
"Now , 1 will tcil you how it come that the
admmistintion weakened on Giay mid took
up Thiniiniii. The lepoits that Gray was the
llrst choice ol the president and that ho was
uidctratked for Thurmnn mo true. Morn-
son in Indiana encountered n gitai deal of
opposition to Gray. Ilo visited Gray and
si/ed up his man very c.uefully. Mor
risen is not a well educated manner
nor is ho a philosopher , but he
is n vciy good judge of human nature. After
lie had heard much against the private and character and capacity of Grui ho
called upon the man and sued him up care
fully. Cray did not stand the criticism of
tlio author ol tlio horri/ontnl tariff bill as
well us was expected , and his report en Gray
was not scry eheerlul. However , the ma
chinery was at woik and it was decreed that
Gray should bo the vice presidential nomi
nee. Moirison put sued his journey into
Illinois , and there began an active canvass
lor l aao P. ( .ray Hist and himself as second
choice. Meanwhile Assistant Postmaster
General Stevenson wiote a lot of lette-rs to
his ft lends in Illinois , ono or two ot v. Inch
jou will remember to Imvo published , mid
earnestly called upon his friends in the state
to stand by him. This increased tlio com
plication and lessened thu chances of
Black very rapidly. It must bo re-
memliorcd that Black has a strong hold on
ins p'oplu , and had ail immensely enthusias
tic lollowmg thioughout the country. No
man has over used hh position foi his
pcrnoiml pio'qrenco 10 a greater extent and
Hi'ro successfully than Genoial Black ,
livery pension boaid in the United States
was ( ji-gani/ed with a view to booming Black
for thu vice presidential nomination , and it
must bo admitted that ho laid Ins founda
tions well. These little district n aclnnos
had been grinding out Black bonus for
months and months , torous , in lact , mid
the fem es were built high and strong , Mor
risen found it very hard work tearing down
J Shirk in Illinois , whcro Morrison himself Is
a great power , mid whoio ho
has much machinery which ho constructed
when ho ran lor the scnatu against General
Logan only two tr three years apo. Bctuoon
two and tbrco weens bolmo the convention
met , Morrison reported that his ejiitaet with
th j people had led him to the conclusion that
Gi ay's record was unsafe , and that theio
were dissensions in tlio patty in liidiunaon
account of the governor's nttitudo towards
certain of tlio old leaders which would make
a split mid likewise lose the s-tnto to the
democratic ticket , and that Gr.ii s recird
and personal qualifications would make him
very weak in New Vont. I expect if William
L. Scott would tipc'iik as Irankly to you ns 1
am doing ho eould hero take up the story and
make it thrilling in the extreme. Not to
mention names , it is enough to say that the
president took into consideration the state
ment made l > i Morrison , und the conclusion
was instantly reached that Gray should bo
put , on the shelf' and Allen G. Thur-
maii substituted The boom

was stalled through federal oflkc-holdera ,
and they got t'aeir Up as quickly as electricity

1 aiders throughout the tountry also received
tips. Thurmnn was to bo the man and the
oillco holders wheeled into line like well-
drilled regulars. Secretary Whitney anil
S crutari Fan-child were each given the
\\suit , and Now York came out with a yell
for Thuiman. A well known democrat wenl
into Ohio and organi/cd theiv for thu Oh !

"Now , in conclusion , " said this astute poli
tician. "I want to make ono piediction. Gen
