Amos , the officer of the day , drew a company
tip In line nt the entrance to tbo p-araao
ground nnd kept them at present arms until
the visitors were within tbo nrea.
Then tba cannon boomed again nnd the
national salute was fired iu honor of Omaha's
honored guests.
Iniront of the oulccr's row another com
pany of soldiers stood with present arms.
U'lio band , in the center of the purado
grounds , played n lively air , nnd the
KuesU wore driven to the place on the
grounds assigned them.
The eceno was nn enlivening ono. There
Vero crowds nna crowds. Tno drlvo wavs
wore thronged with vehicles , greatly Imped
ing tbo progress of the visitors while tbo ut
most diligence of the soldiery was required
to keep the spectators from taking possession
Of the parade ground. Tno attendance wns
estimated nt 12,000 poopl" , nil of thrra
thoroughly imbued with the spirit ot the
occasion.
When the delegates had boon seated , the
huglo sounded the call nnd the dross parnuo
wns begun. Colonel Frank Whcaton wns
commanding oftlcor. Captain Almcs officer
of the day and Lieutenant Kin-
zlo , regimental adjutant. Ton com
panies participated In the parade , which
wns conducted in n manner that
elicited the warmest commendation from
the visitors. At It9 conclusion , tno dole-
gales , headed by General Whcaton nnd Jose

Dpectod the battalion. Tha soldiers npjraurod
in full uniform nnd urcacntcd a magnificent

Been. Everybody wanted to see tU > : m. Kvcn
tbo soldiers , standing nt present arms nt the
roadside , could not resist the temptation to
break the ' -Fifteen paces to the front"
rule governing their eves for the snko of
u glnnco nt tbo distinguished visitors.
There seemed to bo an impression among
some people In the crowd that the delegates
would turn out to bo n swarthy lot of gontto-
men n hlmdo lighter thnn octoroons. The
less enlightened expected to see the dele
gates wearing wide sombreros nnd trousers
witb beaded ornaments. U was a great dis
appointment for thcsa expectant ones to bo
compelled to alight upon the red badges as
the only certain method of distinguishing the
delegates from the members of the recep
tion committee.
After the parade the party returned to the
city , Koing south on Thirtieth to Spauldirig ,
east to Twenty-fourth , south to Cumings ,
cast to Twenty-second , south to Dodne , west
to Twoutj'-sixtb , south to Le-avonworth , cast
to Sixteenth , north to F.irnam nnd then to
the Pnxton hotel , where tlie party arrived at
H:45 : o'clock , dusty , hungry and weary , but
fully satislled with tbo trip and the enter
tainment afforded.

The menu card was an elegant affair. It
was printed ou embossed card board bound
together with colored ribbons representing
the hues in the various bimncrsof the Sou th
em and Central American nations. The
llrstpago contained a map of Central nnd
South America with the nnuicsv of each dele

The dining room wns the center of attrac
tion for the hundreds who thronged the
rotunda. The latter- elbowed each other
vary sbnrnly in order to obtain good posl-
, tions before the window * where they could
ciitchu plimpbo of the diulug visitors.
The meal was greatly enjoyed by all , and
tb menu cards "wero civel'ully preserveJ ,
the visitors especially being delighted with
them.
To add to the enjoyment of the occasion ,
Lon Salisbury's orchestra , hidden boltind n
trellis of viaea. on the bilcoiiv , discoursed
somn excellent music , the majority of the
BOlcctiuns being Spanish airs , which were
especially pleasing to tha gucf ts. In addi
tion , several popular American airs were
alao rendered.
Ouo delegate from the land of the tropics
remarked , In very coed English , as he left
the dining room , that "Uio people , of Omaha
art ! nut at all lacking In methods to make a
visitor's stay pleasant , " to which his com
panion , between tlie puff * of his cigarette ,
enthusiastically replied , "SI , Senor. "
But the crowning triumph in the line of
eouveuirs , and ono which will CIIUHO Omaha
to bo remembered by thu visitors us lontr us
they shall live. was. the presentation , by the
committee , * in uehulf of thoclilrcns , of a lot
of uloguntly polished and mounted burns
fitted with miniature sacks , of the nroducu
of the state of Nebraska. These tiny bogs
were of sillt , tied with many-corored ribbons ,
uud contained plump urrains of wheat , from
the prolific fields of the statn ; golden ker
nels of corn from the millions of acres
whicti now stand In golden ripeness from
one end of Nebraska. to the other ; mammoth
atnples of barley , oata and rye in fact u
HOinplQ of each of the staple cvroaJs of the
broad prairies of this garden spot of Amer
ica
In addition , there were little pieces of relined -
lined gold and nilvor and sulphate of copper
from tbc smelting works , and a host ot other
things , all the product of the city und state.
Each horn was nrritnired su as to bang ovur
tbo shoulder after the manner of u hunter's
jKWder-tiorn , especial care being taken to
uocorato them with the colors of the country
to which the delegate receiving thorn be
longed.
To say that the recipients were moro than
pleased with the beautiful gifts , Is expressing -
ing their feelings lu a very mild form , In-
ilood. lu truth , they universally ndmjtted
that It was tlm tnost appropriate , expressive
uud symbolic souvenir they had yet received ,

The delegates were met at the Puxum by
a committee of reception from the Bluffs ,
consisting-of Mayor llohrcr , J , L. Stawart
T. J. Evuns , J W. Pcregoy and John T.
Stewart , president of the Omaha am

them to two motor trains of five cum which
Awaited them ou the Fourteenth street side

The Ur t train consisted ot three cara with
L. O. Mercer as conductor and li. Fowler

to draw the tram to tlio. Bluffs , but return
ing the Thompson-Houston motor , lu tuo

tatod because the llrst tram wua lust iu re

of turntables.
Tbo second train , consisted of two cars will

The Pan-American delegates bccmno vorj
ntercstod In the workings ot thoolcctnd
allwny. They had enjoyed two brief rides
before on cloctrlo * ystoms , ono in Cincin
nati , the other in Boston. But the rlilo of
en miles to Council Bluffs wns the longest
hey hud yet taken. It occasioned them con
siderable surprise to loam that they wcro
hen riding on the longest electric railway in
ho world.
The river , the two bridges nnd the various
nduntrlcs on the bottoms , spread out like a
lanoramn , wore not lost to the quick eyes of
ho delegates , nnd many were the questions
asked concerning them.
The bottoms with their hundreds of pretty
now cottages excited cointncnt.'nnd some of
ho delegates opened their eyes In astonish
ment nt looming that less than two yours
ngo there were scarce a dozen habitations on

"Our country is rich In mineral wealth

Alcibiadcs Velarde nnd Mariano Velarde ,
ot Bolivia , said that thu object of the groaV
cst Interest to them in their tour was
the electric railways and the Onuilia line
eclipsed anything they had yet seen.
Mr. llomoro. of Mexico , was greatly Inter
ested In anything concerning the smelting
works , although he found time to compliment
the electric motor lino.
Before the delegates reached Omaha on
: ho return trip the shades of night began to
Tall and n number f the guests , yielding to
be weariness caused , by n surfeit of sight
seeing , dropped to sleep in their seats ,
shortly nftor 0 p. m. the delegates wcro
ardcd at tuo Paxton , whence they started.
Said a 3'ounp delegate from Colombia :
"Yes , we are making use of electricity iu
nany wavs. Wo hnvo long had eleclric
igbts and in Aspinwall they have had olcc-
: ric Kirs for some tluio. A light like that
pointlair to an nrc lamp ) , costs with us $1 per
lay in gold or $80 per month. What , does It
cost hero ] "
He was informed that the cost was from
910 to 515 per month.
"Indeed , " ho said , ' 'that is cheap compared
with our rates. A light for or house costs $ -1
a night. 1 have a friend who pays $25 u
niirht for electric light In his house. "
When tho-cars started on their icturn trip
: ho throngs which had lined the side-walks
lad retired to their homes. The shades of
nicrht nail commenced to fall , nml , in the
trains , darkness ruled. Suddenly , there
amo a flash nnd noonday brilliancy pre
vailed. The connection between the cars
las been made , the current which was mov
ing the trains was laid under contribution
mil In each car six bulbs glowed with the
brichtest of electric radiance. It was u sur-
ume to the delegates. Thcj had not been
ire-pared for the illumination , thinking that
.ho application of electricity as n motive
iox\cr alone was a great achievment with
out Its simultaneous use as au illuminating
nodiuin.
In these lighted trains , therefore , chatting
ileasantly with ono another , the members of
.ho leception committee nnd representatives
of the press , the party returned to the Pax-
on , whora u lurgu number of citizens and n
icurty sunper awaited them.

The eveningwas'soont in accordance with
the various inclinations 9f the visitors ,
many of them remaining in their rooms ,
resting after the fatigues of the dav. From
the balcony m the loboy the opera bouso
orchestra discoursed sweet strains , and
jcloiv ninny of the visitors and a largo nuoi-
jer of citizens mingled-in a good-natured ,
ostllng crotvd. A great many prominent
citizens availed , themselves of this oppor
tunity for becoming bettor acquainted with
.he natiou'd ' guests , , und were met more than
mlt way by the latter. Little knots were
cathcted in the various nooks and seated in
close proximity , discussing the commercial
resources of their native lands. Tlio dele
gates were , greatly interested la learning
further details of the manufacturing facili
ties of this bcction , and wore ever ready to
impart information in regard to their pro
ducts.
The visit to the smelting works had opened
up u now source of wonderment , and many
inquiries were made regarding the different
kinds of muchinery In use.
Ciene Ml U. Bolero Paraza , of Venezuela ,
was especially interested in learning all
about tbo latest inventions in machinery for
crushing ore and relining it. He said hu
was interested in tbo mining industry iu his
country und said if they had the improved
machinery used in thi.i country they could
develop their , mines much moro satisfac
torily.
Several of the merchants amonc the dele
gates exchanged idea * and facts with some
of the prominent Omaha merchants.
In shovt , the evening was surely an era ot
good fpellng nud was most pleasantly spent
in mutual Intercourse.
At S ) o'clock the visitors began dropping
off in twoa nnd threes and taking their way
to their train.
By 11 o'clock the entire party were safely
ensconced within the train , many retiring at
once , but gome betook themselves to tno din
ing car , whore u light lunch wcro partaken
of nud the enjovmcnts of tno day discussed.
Several of the delegation had been very
pleasantly entertained early in the evening
ut the palatial residence of Mr. Samuel
Orchard , and they wcrq loud iu their praises
of Omaha hospitality uud the beauty of
Omiiha ladies.
About midnight the train nulled out of the
depot and started on the journey to St. Louis ,
going by way of DCS Moluos , although no
stop will be made there. From St. Louis the
party will go to Kansas City , thence to

Mr. Frank H. Taylor , representing the

said ho was very much impressed with
Omaha , nnd that ho would return In n few
months for Frank Leslie's paper and Rlvo
such an illustration of this city as 1ms never

corn palace was the most curious thing they

of Its hind lu Spanish-America , , t having

the great importance of having commercial
Intercourse with their neighbors in bouth
America , which is now alniosf. entirely mo

The delegates nay that the only mistake
the Omaha people made was in attempting
too much. They regretted having to decline
n visit to the slaughter houses , but tuny bad
seen thu Chicago houses and did not really
care to see those of South Omaha.

Inner History Concerning the Con
spiracy to Bnnorspilo Ijincoln.
N'cw Yonic , Oct. 27. [ Special Telegram to
Tun Bun.J James R , Gilmorc , the author
of "Edmund Ktrko , " und once au editorial
writer on the Tribune , has nmdo public his
connection with what was called by Thurlow
Weed tlio conspiracy to supersede Abraham
Lincoln In iSO-t.
Gilmore says the movement embraced very
many of the best and inllucntial members
of the republican party , and to all human
appearances would have succeeded in dofeat-
ine u second nomination nnd election of Lin
coln had its plans not been Unvaried oy the
very man who had been selected ns its pres
idential candidate. His patriotism was
stronger than his ambition , and he' refused
to be lured from what bo deemed
his post of duty even by the
glittering prize ot the presidency. This man
was General Rosccranz , now register of the
treasury , and for two terms representative
to congress from California.
Giluioro tells of an interview between
himself and Horace Greeloy in which the
latter said that should the country survive
Lincoln's term it would , if ho was
re-elected , of a certainty go to
destruction. The only hope of its
salvation lay iu defeating the I'e-olection of
Mr. Lincoln , and to do this some suitable
candidate should nt once bo fixed ui > and
during the succeeding eighteen months bo
written up by the whoio loyal press , so that
ho might bo sure to carry the country.
Those views of his , he-said , were shared by
most of the leading men of the republican
parly , and they , as well as he ,
were of the opinion that General Kosecranz
would be the most available candidate. Ho
seemed to bo "the coming man , " and though
some might object that ho ivas n Koman
Catholic , Grefiley considered that au advan
tage , inasmuch ns it would command the
solid Irish vote. Rosocranz was nn able
man nnd an nrdent patriot who
would bo sure to prosecute the war
energetically. Tbe only question ; in Mr.
Greeloy's mind was , "Is ho sound on the
goose ! " That is , would he refoso to listen
to nny peace that did not provide for the ab
solute extinction of slavery. Mr. Greeloy
nnd bis friends desired an answer to that
question nnd Gilmore went down to Ten
nessee to get Rosecranz's answer
nnd tender him the nomination , but
this was Uosccranz's reply. "Thegood opin
ion of those gentlemen is exceedingly grati
fying to mo , but , my good friend , it can not
bo. My place is here. The country gave tne
my education , and so has a right to my mili
tary services , and it educated mo for pre
cisely this emergency. So this , and not the
presidency , is uiy post of duty , and
Icau not , without violating my conscience ,
leave it. But lot mo toll you , and I wisb you
would toll your friends who nro moving in
this maUnr , that you are mistaken about Mr.
Lincoln. Ho Is in his right place. I am In
position to know , and if you live you will see
that 1 am right about it. "
This is a piece of Inner history of that
campaign not heretofore revealed , undone of
which gives Kosecrunz a high place among
true patriots.

miirdcr. Late in the fall following the mur
der Ernest disappeared and has never been
heard from since. In the spring
of 1SSO , whoa the trail behind Eugene
Meyers became rather wnrni , ho .began . to
talk , and finally came out and Raid that'
Ernest hud told him.tlmt , at tbo instigation
of Long and for n certain sura of money , he
( Ernest ) had Killed the "bid couple and sot
lire to the house. Upon which , March 30 ,
Long was arrested nnd on April a , two in
dictments were brought , against him by the
grand jury , then in session , and charging )
him with "aiding , abutting and procuring
ono Ernest Meyers to kill nnd murder the
said Emily liascbmb , " and the other with
"killing and mUrdcring said Richard Bas-
comb. " L
In ttic absence of a motion ou Long's part ,
Meyers was also1 afterwards indicted ami
tried for thej'nlftraer. Net being nbla to
lind Ernest MoVers ' , it is supposed that ho
was made way with nnd , there being no
ovidcnco of a ( iositivo " nature against him , ho
was acquitted ! '
Since said ihdictments against Long were
found the folltfivmg regular terms of the
district court o'f 'Lincoln ' county have been
hejd , besides itororal adjourned terms , viz. :
March term' , 1S80 ; October term , I860 ; May
term , 1887 ; November term. 1837 ; April
turm , ISSS ; OcUdtior term , 18S8 , and May
term , 18S9. "At } the October term , 1SSO ,
a trial was ha"dntid ( Long was convicted.
But the case , belWg taken before the supreme
court , it was rdversed because of errors on
the part of thQ ir secutlon and court. Siuco
that term the"cab mis been carried over ,
through term after term , against the re-
pouted protests und demands of the defend
ant and his counsel. At the April , 18S3tcrm
two other indictments were presented
against Long-similar in terms , except that in
the ono Ulcbard wa substituted for Emily
nnd in the other Emily was substituted for
Uichard , evidently to evade the law , which
demands a trial within a certain time. At
the next term of court three of the indict
ments were dismissed , at the request of the
prosecution , bnt no trial was had. At an
adjourned term of that court , however , hold
December 20 , 1888 , a second trial was finally
given the defendant , and tha case given to
the jury January 3. 18S9.
After the jury had been out several days
his honor , notwithstanding the fact that the
jury stood 11 to 1 for acquittal , and without
tno consent of the defendant , discharged
them and the ease went over to the May
term. That term of court commenced Aluy
G last and was in session until May 21 , the
only criminal business during Unit time
being the trial of two persons for the larceny
of n'couple of saddles. Defendant's counsel
demanded trial , und , finding the court dis
posed to carry it over , filed a motion nnd
application for bail in consideration of the
fact that defendant had lain in jail moro
than three years nnd bad petitioned and de
manded trial at every tegular and adjourned
toria of court since lirst lucarceratcd , March
30 , ISSli. Judeo Plainer refused the
implication und adjourned court until
Julv 20 last. Court convened
again July 29 last , and although a special
vuniro of ninety-six men , gathered from all
parts of the county , wore hero to serve as
jurors , his honor , at tbo request of the prose
cution , and upon allldavit that they desired
mid expected to bo able to procure the evi
dence of ono Tiedcmnn , now living in Col- '
orndo , again adjourned court until October
SI. This jnanTiedoman , bo it known , worked
for Long at the time of the murder , und wns
arrested as accessory on general
urinclples , but finally discharged , though
held in jail us n witness until after the first
trial of Long. Ho is an ox-convict nnd u
hard citizen , and it is not thought likely bv
anyone except his honor that ho will show
up at the trial.

MA. KA CIIAXO AXn MITKinWIEZ.
There are some interesting facts coming to
light concerning the .famous Mitklowicz
Chinese concession , and the truth is becom
ing known for tbo iirst timo. The facts as
related by n gentleman Intimately connected
with the negotiations are as follows ;
The original concessions wore obtained by
Mitkiuwicz , and contained the provisions that-
there should bo established a system of gov
ernmental banks in China with n capital of
$30,01)0.000. ) Mitkiowiez , agreed to raise $10-
000,000 in this country , nnd the Chinese gov
ernment was to furnish the other naif.
There was an interesting side-contract also ,
mndo to the effect that $500,003 was to bo
loaned the. imperial government by the
American syndicate , althougli for what pur
pose it was not stated. But it is saspcctcd
that this sum was intended to "grcaso" the
wheels of the Chinese foreign often. As
soon as these ? concessions were granted the
English tirm of Russell & 'Co. , Winch is now
the largest banking concern doing business
in China , became alarmed , and represented
to the viceroy tbat Mitkiewiea was an Irro
sponsiblc person , and totally unable to carry
out the provisions. In the meantime Mlt-
kicwiez had returned to this country , and
entered into negotiations with the Philadel
phia syndicate headed by Wharton Barker.
Mitkiowiez was advanced $73,000 , which
represents the total sum which he has ob
tained so far from the concessions.
Shortly after his arrival in this country
ho was followed by a special ambassador
from the viceroy , Ma Ka Chang , ono of the
moat astute diplomats in the Clilntsu
service. Ma Ka Chang was for several
months the guest of the Wharton-Mitkio-
wiez combination. His total expenses were
paid by the syndicate , and ho lived in a royal
manner during bis stay. After visiting
Washington ho mada his headquarters in
Now Yorjt at the Metropolitan hotel. The
syndicate was confident that he would make
a favorable report to the viceroy.and accord
ing to one who ought to know the inside of
the whole business , he was advanced a very
handsome sum for bia own uersonat emolu
ment.
Just about this time the Chinese minister ,
who has lately returned to the flowery king
dom , also appeared upon the Wharton-
Mltkiewiez horizon. Ho gave the syndicate
to understand that if § 15.000 were placed in
his possession that there would bo no doubt
of the perpetuity of the concessions. No at-
attention was paid to him , however ,
the Americans preferring to deal di
rectly with the representative of
the viceroy. While thU was going on
nn agent authorized to represent
Russell & Co. arrived from London. Ho
had a long and confidential talk with Ma Ka
Chung. What transpircd-at that interview
is not known , but , it is not dIOlcult to guess
what it was. Ma Ka Chang then left for
homo. Ho made his report to the viceroy ,
and recommended the revocation of the con
cession , which action was taken by the vice
roy.
roy.Strnngoto sarMa iCa Chang is a Roman
Catholic. He was educated at Paris , and
was attached to the embassy there for a
number of years. Tbo difficulty between
Mitkiowiez and Barker arose over the man-
ngoincnt of the funds for tbo establishment
of the Chlncso National bn'ik ; Barker hav
ing raised the money naturally thought ho
ought to control it ; Mitkiowiez having ob
tained tbo concosMouand asserting that ho
alone could manage the Chinese foreign
olllcc , did not think that nobody else could
properly carry out the enterprise Neither
side gave in. At present Barker has n re
voked concussion , and Mitlciewinz the shreds
of what was once seventy-two thousand
cold , hard American dollars.

DBS MOINES. In. , Oct. 27. [ Special to
THE Br.E.1 A movement Is ngnln on
foot for the establishment of a great central
Methodist university at this place , which
shall unify all the Methodist educational in
terests of the state. At the Inn session of
the' DCS Molilcs conference It was arranged
to have a commission meet in this city to
consider this subject. That commission ,
With Bishop Warren ns president , will moot
in this city in tlie'conrso of n month or six
weeks. There are at present four Mothodfst
colleges In the state , located respectively nt
Mount Pleasant , Indhtiioln , Mouutt Vorudn
and Fnyotte ; naturally , each to woulr , nnd
unable to do what needs to bo dono. Instead
of ono strong university for the state ,
the Mothoduta have divided their
strength , their enthusiasm nnd
their energy into quarters , and no school Is
at nil canal to the demands of the tiroes.
But each Ins a local constituency , which
with natural pride and affection i-ufuso * to
clvo up and make way for a now ami cantral
school. So all the schemes for having the
four mcriro Into ouo at the capital of the
state have failed.
Now u now turn is taken , nnd it Is pro
posed to allow the four to remain uud make
them adjuncts or auxiliary to the one uni
versity proper which shall be located nt Dos
Moines. It is protiotod to have hero schools
of medicine , law , pharmacy , dentistry , etc. ,
In fact tha usual professional schools of uuni-
versi.y , and leave at the four , places the
schools for the liberal arts. Then , instead
of local rivalry , there would bo n common
enthuslapin unit interest in the will of the
whole , and a great university witu.ils center
at the capital could bo developed. The pro
ject is meeting with much favor.

DES MOIXES , la. , Oct. 27. [ Special to THE
BEB. ] Tho-way-in which a justice of the
jioaca has been abusintr the power that is
given him has just como to light and natu
rally creates great indignation.
A so-called constable attempted to arrest n
man who was carrying homo a cotiolo of bottles
tles of Deer , bought at a drug store accord
ing to law.
The man resisted and proved that he had
a rizht to the beer. He demanded to see the
alleged constable's warrant for his arrest ,
It proved to bu an ordinary blank for that
purposolssued from the otllco of Squire Pnr-
ribtt. It was headed "State of I own vs John
Boo , real name unknown , " nnd certain in
toxicating liquors , etc , etc. , and authorised
tno poison to whom it was mvcn to s.cio
tbo liquor In whatever form it was being
carried in violation of law. So this warrant
wns issued wittiout the justice knowing upon
whom It was to be served , and was practic
ally u license for any irresponsible otlicer to
soige and rnolcst any respectable citizen
whom ho might charge with attempting to
violate the prohibitory law. Tlio pretended
constable is a fellow whoso sanity has beeu
questioned in court , and hu is nota constable ,
but has been commissioned at times to act as
such by conniving justices liku the OHO men
tioned.
There Is a general feeling of indignation in *
this city over this perversion of law , uad an
effort , will bo made to have the grand jury in

piling the returns that urn sent in by the

The Republican Outlook.
DES Aloises. la. , Oct. 27. f Special to Tun
BBB. ] The republican campaign has pro
gressed so far and so well that the managers
begiu to feel that they can make borne pre
dictions on the result. They naturally ex
pect u much lighter vote and smaller plu
rality than last year. The year after a presi
dential campaign is alxvays inarnod with
more or less npjthy uud indifference , as u
Kind of reaction from the great struggle of
the year before. Last year General Harri
son bad a plurality of 111,7'il in this state , but
thu vote then was unusually large , being n
total -I04.10 ! ! , while tno total vote In 1S < 4
was but n7j ( , < J5'i This year neither pjriy
will get out its full vote , and the total will
fall considerably below the total of last year.
If the republicans get u plurality half us large
as pencral Harrison's plurality last your ,
they will do very well , nil things conbidercd.
It is quite orobablo that Senator IJntcliiMjii
wilt receive some twelve or ilfttion thousand
plurality , according to present indications.
There tire four candidates for governor In
thu liulil , hut thu minor candidates will not
do very much.
There is a good prospect that the trouble
in the republican ramp in the Thirty-seventh
senatorial district may bo amicably settled.
In reply to the propositions of Mr Ells
worth , eau of the republican candidates for
senator , the other one , Mr. Smith , made
ulso n series of prouositious , ofCuring to
leave the settlement of the question as to
who is the rightful randidato to Governor
Larrabce. Mr. Ellsworth has accented that
proposition , und au effort iu now being mudu
to have tlio governor net as roferuo. If he
will do so nud d6ctdo which candidate shall
stay In the Hold , the other will withdraw und
everything will be nettled harmoniously ,
The rcpuullcans can easily clod ono senator
in Unit district , but it is very doubtful if
they have votes enough to oiocst two , with a
democrat riinniniiit the munu time ,
