Thcro are reports hero of n strong move
ment to make Secretary Whitney the demo
cratic candidate for govcinorof New York ,
In order to strengthen the presidential ticket
In that state. It In conceded that Senator
Wnrncr Miller will bo the republican cnndi *
date , and that the campaign will 1)0 fiercer
than it over has been. Governor Hill Is not
believed bv the administration to bo ns
strong bcforo the people of New York as
Secretary Whitney would bo. It Is stated
that Mr. Whltnoy would bo very glad to
mnko the race , i'nd that his nunouncamcnt
several days ago that ho would lotlro from
the cabinet was made nt a tlmo when ho
thought his nomination for the governorship
wns probable , nnd ho intended it to pave the
way for his retirement from the cabinet and
His entry Into the politics of his own state in
n inoro positive manner thnn ho has been en
gaging in It during the past three
jcnrs. Friends of the ptcsulcnt say
that If It were not for the
fact Hint Governor Hill Is consldoicd very
strong with the saloon nnd whisky elements
in New York , the administration would pit
Whitney ugainsjL him for the nomination and
conduct the campaign independent of the
Hill hosts.

Today's New Yoik Tiihuiie has u lengthv
interview with Heprcsenttve Monow of Cal-
ifoinla on Genetnl Harrison's Chinese icc-
ord. As stated in these dispatches some
timengo , Mr. Mouow , in the curly part of
this spiing , when Goneiul Hairiion was Hist
spoken of for the picsidcutial nomination , nt
the rcijucst of his filends in California ,
looked up tlio Indianlan's ' iccord on tlio Chi
nese question. Mr. Morrow , since the nomi
nation of General Hniiisou , has ngain gene
over the congiessioniil iccords ami Journals
IB" of the senate committee on foicign lelntions ,
nnd in this interview lie gives in detail overv
nctlon of Gcncial Hiiriison on tlio Chinese
question , both while the various mcnsuics
that were proposed when ho was in the sen
ate committee , nnd while they
were before the senate for con
sideration. The iccord proves
to bo ono which prompts the Tubune in an
nouncing that it gives him more Hticngth be
fore the cojntry than if he never had any
thing to do with the subject at all , becausa
. it shows that ho is a caiolul thinker , a sound
reasouer and is an ardent and consistent
liicnd of the American luboior and is op
posed to the impoi tation of Chinese labor.
The Tribune regaids General Harrison's at
titude towards Chineseimmigintionussuong
I ns that of any other prominent man in the
republican party , not excepting Mr. Blame.
' Mr. Moirow says Geneial Harii-
'I son fuvoicd additional legMallon.
nnd in a conversation Ho h id
with him in ISbfl , while they were on their
way to attend a dinner given by tlio Clover
club of Philadelphia , General Haiiison told
Him , ( Mr. Morrow , ) that ho was not only in
favor of fui ther legislation in rcstinmt of
Chinese immigration , but that he was in fa
vor of u HOW lieaty that would pi ovule for
absolute exclusion This was more thlin two
j.cnisbcfoio Geneial Haulson's was
mentioned in connection with thepiesidency
General Huiiison was a membci of the com-
tniltco on foielgn lolations and is on recoul
in favor of the bill ptoposcd by hcnatoi
Mitchell of Oregon , which is con-
eidcrod the most oxticmo anti-Chinese
emmigrnlion mcasui'o ever intioducod In
congiess. Mr. Morrow cites tlio Congress
iomil iccord a number of times to pto\o his
statements. Tlio iccoui , ho Ba\H , shows
General Hin risen to bo in favor of a clean
cut abrogation of the existing treaty with its
anoying limitations and excluding the China-
men absolutely , which ispicclsely the post
tlon occupied by the senators and lepicscnta-
tivcs fiom the Pacific coast. Mr. Mouow
pays that us picsident , Geneial Hariisou
would cnfoico the treaty and hatover leg
islation congicss might enact to rcstiict Chi
nese emigration.

Mr. Baino of Pennsylvania , In suppoiting
the motion , e\piessed himself as opposed to
u i eduction of the tarilT , and us in favor of
the repeal of the tobacco tax and the tax on
alcohol used in the arts. This , Ho thought ,
would i educe the surplus as fur us it Hliould
bo icduced if the government intended to
do Justica to the widows and childicn of the

before the country to day represented two
ideas the lepublican ticket that American

that the American m.nket should bo open to

Mr Scott of Pennsylvania charged the re

with going before the counti'i in Iv S asking
the people foi their suffrage on 11 principle
which it had nevci befoioadvocated. Under

At 2 i ) . m. icstcrdny the pavilion was Idled
with people who desired to hear the readings
of Pi of U. Lo Cumnock , of the Not thwcstci n
univcisity of Illinois. Prof. Cumnock is said
to have no supsnor as n reader in this coun

largo enough to accommodate the ctowd
of singers , but this difficulty is to
bo remedied ore nnothei rehearsal by its
material enlargement.
Colonel Cow den's class met at this same
hour in the normal Hall. The subject of the
session was "Tho C mons of Scripture , " and
the hour was spent in classifying the hooks
of tlio Old Testament , and nssigning them to
their icspectlvo ponods. The advanced nor
mal also met at 4 o'clock. This class is
studying the books of the Bible They Have
now completed the Old Testament and taken
up the New. The lesson ycsteidav ufteinoon
was "The Early Yeais of Chust. "
An examination of the assembly register
shows that onlyu small number of these who
como upon the grounds take the trouble to
comply with the request of the management
and icgister tlieii names. The scciotary's
register contains onli about fifteen thousand
These fifteen thousand people icprcseiit fif

about one hundred and fifty n imes and two
additional states Michigan and California.
This makes in all sixteen states
one ton Itory and ono district icpiescntcd at
tlio seventh session of the Nebraska assem
lily. Dr. Huilbjt. socictary of the C. L. S-
C , arrived iestci day morning. At 5 o'clock
all membcis of the C. L. S. C. met at the
hall in the giovo to Hear him talk upon the
subjects of inteiest to the circle. Ho was
given a heaity gieetmg , and expressed Him
self as greatly pleased with the signs of
grow tli and prosperity visible In every do-
pal tmcnt ol the Nobinska assembly. Ho
then gave a biiof histori of the Chuutauquu
oigani/ation of this country. It begun in

a mcmboiHhip of 70,00) ) , besides some foity
thousand who Have cither finished the course
01 given it up. The societ.v in founded upon
thico gicat principles ; Fast , overibody
needs culture und evcrybojy should huvo it.
Thcie nio many who think that the advan
tages of education uro for but the few ; that
the masses nro better off without It , us it
onlj makes them dissatisfied with their lot.
Against this Idea the C. L S. C. is ar-
ruied. It believes thnt both the rich and
the poor should bo cultuied , The rich need
culture that thoi may know how to use the
money they have accumulated , and how to
get the best out of life. The poor need cul-
tuio because it will lift them up , will make
them better and happier and make their
w 01 Id hugcr and brighter. Ono who loves
good books need never bo lonely or without
something of worth to think about , no mat

Hi Hutlbut then plctuiod the daily rounds
of souio of the luboiiug classes , especially of
fin mem' wives. Uho nvcr.igo woman who
docs her own Housework may look back
through all the duis of foity icars of Her
life and every Monday of these all was a
washday. The drudging monotony in the
lives t' ' t many working people live is
enough to drive -them ciazy. Good books
vv ill provu tliu best antmOte ln- the w orld for
such toilsome monotony.
'Iho second piinciplo on which the C. L.
S. il. i& founded Is that even body can hav o
culluio. In this country , and especially in
the west , cdjuition is to chcip and oppor
tunities nro so many , almost e\ cry } oung

will fin null jrany advantages. Very few
realize the an ount that can bo done by the
devotion of un I our a dai to the purpose of

that cuituio should fiibt Ioncral , ana then

U. L S C. believes tint our cuituio should

nothing unless It makes ono wiser , broader ,

In closing Dr. Hurlbut expressed His great
plcasuioin seeing so many nt this assembly
engaged In Chautnuqua work , and to
know thnt on Kccognltlon day fifty-
four will present themselves for-
graduation. Ho was pleased to s ly that this
was the largest class that his yet graduated

standing of the nssoniblj. Ho also said that
the growth of the assembly seemed to the
management to demand addition tl build

that of last v car , and the moiioy that bus
thus far come in is nearly twice ns much
as eiimo in dining tlia sumo tlmo last icar ,

the money for those buildings by a fuithor
sale of stock Some of the stockholders nro
not wilting that stock continue to bo sold at
par , but tno m ijorlty are willing that for the
picscnt the prlco leman $10 per share.
Stock can be bought nt nny time by applying
to the president , secretary or superintendent

above parties.
After this announcement and a solo by
Miss Hambliu , Mis. Lathrop wns Intro
duced and began her lectuto. No particular
subject wns announced , but the general
theme of the nddrcss was a discussion of the
causes which hail brought the tempcranco
question Into the province of government for
settlement. The main reason was found in
the fact that other menus have been proven
wholly inadequate to meet tlio demands of
the ciso. Mrs. Litluop then gavon brief
review of the agencies that have thus far
been emploicd. The church has long been
more or less active la the temperance move
ment , but has accomplished comparatively
little because of divisions about petty sect
and denominational questions. The Washingtonian -
ingtonian movement and the crusades both
did n good woik , hut both Have had their
day. Other menus have been tried , but nil
have fallen short of ultimate triumph. Mrs.
Lathrop maintained that the tempcranco
question Has not suffered any loss by
coming into the realm of political discussion.
In conclusion Mrs. Lathrop said : "Tho
saloon is entrenched like Gibraltar in the
wrong attitude of the government , but I believe -
liovo the child Is bout that will sco the
closed door of the lastBaloon In our country. "
Mrs Lathrop has been called the most
logical of all the speakers on the temperance
question. She certainly is both eloquent
and able. Her largo audience showed gieat
appreciation of her lecture. To judge by the
frequent applause the audience was largely
made up ot prohibitionists.
The ti.iiO piaver meeting this morning wns
led by Colonel Co wden and the subject for con
sideration was the icsults of faithful Chris
tian work. A gentleman from Illinois gnvo
the key note to the meeting by saying that ho
thanked God for this grand assembly of the
united Christians of Nebraska. He hoped
that here all would receive such a si n it of
