CincAoo , Oct. 29. [ Special Telegram to
THE BcE.1 General John C. Black , whoso
meteoric course as commissioner of pensions
Is still fresh In the minds of the American
people , to-day gave another exhibition of
political calisthenics In his Drlcf fight for the
democratic nomination for the rccordorshlp.
ills defeat was absolute and tha result mndo
complete the humiliation of this democratic
soldier politician. All the gossip around tbo
North Side turner ball , wncro the democratic
county convention mot this morning , was
about tbo candidacy of General Black for tbo
office of recorder. He was urged strongly
by the city halt crowd and an. exceedingly
enthusiastic cnhvass was at onra begun for
him , headed by Charloi Grain , Mayor Creg-
Icr's son-in-law , Bcrnhardt Klobllng , Aider-
man Mclnerny , Captain Farrell and others.
It scorned as If bo would surely bo offered
the nomination , and the only remaining ques
tion to settle was to learn whether or not bo
would accept. A delegation waited on Gen
eral Hlack to learn his wishes. The wlloy
old ofllco hunter pursued the usual tactics ,
nnd , "vowing ho Would no'cr consent , con
sented. " The acquiescence- the Illinois
reminiscence of the Cleveland administra
tion to re-enter political Ufa WAS received
with enthusiasm by n cotorlo of friends , but
promptly frowned upon by the Harrison ,
.ludd nnd Qoudy factions. Black's short
rcsidonco In the city of Chicago was used as
a telling argument against his candidacy nnd
the old time hostility of the Morrison faction
did the rest. When the convention llnally
mot General Black appeared , nnd after a
brief consultation in the anto-room with his
adherents decided to withdraw from the
light and his name was not oven presented to
the convention. _

KEW YOIIK , Oct. 29. ( .Special Telagrorn to
THE BUB.--A prominent newspaper man
and democratic politician told TUB DEC cor
respondent that the Blulno story of the
World was cither a fake or the most out
rageous betrayal of confidence Known to
nowspaperdom. The likelihood Is that it
was a fiction , based on the slight fact that
Blalno was hot over well while In Italy. If
the writer did not make up the story , ho , ac
cording to his own language , was guilty of a
breach of confidence with the physician who
gave htm the story , and a man who would do
this would not hesitate to Ho , therefore the
story was not on any ground to bo given
"In disproof of the theory that Blalno was
so sick in Florence , " said THE Buc's inform
ant , "I wimt to tell of an Interview which I
had In Paris with T. C. Crawford , the
World's correspondent in Europe , shortly
after Crawford had visited Florence
to interview Bhtlno for the World.
Crawford told mo that Blattio was
as strong mentally as ever ; that ho was
bright , cheerful mid full of pleasing anecdotes -
dotes and reminiscences. Crawford also told
mo that in December , a full month before
the Florence loiter. of declination xvas writ
ten , Bldlno had told him bo would not bo a
candidate aaln. The man Crawford , ro-
mombcr , was the World's ' correspondent , nnd
his statement absolutely confutes the ridicu
lous story now told. Moreover , Crawford
cabled to the World essentially the same
matter , saying that Blaine was out riding and
bowing to friends on the very days when the
World now says ho was in tbo house de
pressed with melancholy. "

tract the slander publicly.
Upon arrival of the train Mr. Rosewater
proceeded to the rink , which was pacitod

that this was only another evidence of the

Amidst a great deal of uproar , during
which time n number of the gcntlctnon of

could have a hearing , Mrs. Gougar called for
a vote denouncing Mr. Rosewater for coining
into the meeting , which was declared car

WASHINGTON. D. O. , Oct , 29.
If for any reason the Fifty-first congress
should not confirm the roapporllontncnt of
the congressional districts according to the
census of 1890 , the electoral votes In the next
presidential year , counting the thirteen cast
by the now states will number 414. The num
ber necessary to elect would therefore bo
209. The "solid south , " so called , would
furnish 150 , including West Virginia's six ,
so that tha democrats might reasonably ex
pect to have to find 53 votes somewhere in
order to insure success. Kow York , if won
over , would furnish 30 of these , leaving 10
still to get. The other states reckoned on as
possibilities are Indiana with 15 , Kow Jersey
with 0 , Connecticut with 0 , nnd
Montana with U It will bo scon
that Indiana must bo included in any
winning combination , for Kow Jersey ,
Connecticut tand Montana together I could
muster only 18 votes. Indiana arid Kow Jer
sey would answer , or Indiana nnd Connecti
cut. Montana would bo of no account in
nny calculation except as a make , weight.
Commenting on the fine outlook for the re
publican party on this basis this evening's
Star ( independent ) says :
"Should Delaware desert the party col
umn as she did when she elected the legis
lature that choose Mr. Higglns senator , Mon
tana would do very well ns a counterbalance ,
or should West Virginia or Florida carry
her lean majority over to the other side ,
causing a detlcit of 23 or 25. Indiana , Con
necticut und Montana would bo a competent
trio in tha latter case , and Indiana , Now Jer
sey nnd Montana in the former. "
The interest attaching to this survey of the
field rests upon the rellot which the repub
licans experience through the admission of
the now states in the northwest , from , fur
ther anxiety about Kow York. Any ono of a
number of combinations could bo made from
which that state might bo excluded which
would give the presidency to the republicans ,
always supposing , of course , that ttio north
held generally ns firm to the republican faith
as the south to the democratic
The ellect of the admission of the now
states may bo summoned up , therefore , as
roboing New York of her former prestige ns
arbiter of the political fortunes of the whole
country. The battle Held of the future , for
a considerable period at least , will bo located
in ono of tbo lesser states , such as Indiana or
Now Jersey , whoso loss would probably bo
irreparable to tbo democrats.
Very low persons bclievo that nny prose
cutions will ensue from the issurnuce of the
circulars by the Virginia republicans solicit
ing contributions for the campaign from the
Old Dominion republicans In the depart
ments. The drift of opinion is that Com
missioner-Thompson , whoso reconstruction
is not thorough , is simply bent upon fright-
rening the republicans holding offices vvho
would like to nsshst General Mationo to RO-
'curo ' success at the election next week. The
conimlssion does not undertake to pass upon
questions of law , and will therefore turn the
whole matter over to the district attorney
for investigation. If that oQlcer finds that
tha law has been violated bo will lay the
matter before the errand Jury and ask that
Indictments bo returned.
There is no likelihood either that the re
publican collectors for the Ohio campaign
will bo prosecuted , us has been threatened.
Those men have uot violated the law and
have committed no wrong. They did not
go half as far as the democrats did in the
campaigns of 1880 and 16S8 , and there was
no talk of accusing those men :
The bad effect ot hasty congressional ac
tion is shown again in connection with the
working of the contract labor law.
Vigorous efforts are being made on the
part of many people Interested in building up
Norfolk , Va. , as a shipping point for cotton
both to European and the Northern Atlantic
ports oi the United Suites. A centlemnn
from England , a cotton spinner , who was In
vited to Norfolk to witness the facilities for
shipping , and who was favorably impressed
with the idea of that port as u port of de
parture for raw cotton , reports tlmt his visit
has convinced him that for the present at
least the contract labor law will prevent the
effectual carrying out of the scheme , and tbo
whole thing is summed up in a sentence
thus :
"In buying cotton wo want to know Just
what we got , and consequently have our own
sorters and graders to look at the stock of
fered. In Kow York our men have been
there for years. They came before the con
tract labor law wont Into effect. Wo tried
to have our own graders go to Norfolk , but
they are barred out by this law , and I expect
the law will bo exceedingly detrimental to
the interests of Norfollc as n shipping port. "
There was a conference to-day between
Pension Commissioner Raum nnd Secretary
Noble relative to the dismissal of the em
ployes of the pension ofllco whoso pensions
have been rerated. Ko final direction has
yet been given by cither the secretary or the
'commissioner by which thesa employes ,
about forty-two In number , nro to go out.
Another question is being discussed by
these officials and it is to bo disposed of nt
the same time that final action as to the re-
rated employes Is taken. It Is In regard to
the procedure to bo followed as to the
illegally alloyved reratod pensions and the
means to bo pursued In compelling the bene
ficiaries to dlsgorgo the money.
Anticipating tbo removal of two score or
more employes , embracing members of the
board of appeals , special examiners und
clerks , Secretary Koble Is dally receiving a
flood of applications for the positions which
are to bo made vacant.
Trouble will arise over tbo removal of the
employesyhose pensions were rerated , as
some of them will attempt and probably will
prove that they secured their increase nnd
rctioactlvo pensions regularly , and they will
try to show that they did not excrclao their
official influence to secure early action ,
Soyeral employes are known to have re
turned tholr retroactive pensions , but it is
not probable that they will escape punish
ment by such action. It is hold by the em
ployes who are to bo dismissed that there
should bp some punishment inflicted upon
tbo rerated employes under Commissioner
Black's administration. Secretary Noble
Intends to look up the facts on the subject
and it is likely ho will extend his punish
ment back to tha Black period.
The people up In Knoic county , Neb. , have
protested through Hon. A. L. Towlo against
locating any Santce Indians on the old Pour a
It appears that under an executive order
of 18S5 the lands of the old Santec-Sloux
reserve , pot then allotted to tha Santees ,
wcro thrown open to the whites ns publio
domain. The recent Sioux commission
discovered tlmt the Indians objected to sec-
tlan 7 of the Sioux bill , and the commission ,
In order to got the Indians to sign , agreed to
recommend to congress to either glvo the
Santees land elsewhere or pay them the
value in mouoy , and whether the recommen
dation will bo adopted no ono now knows.
Section 7. however , elves the Santees not
already allotted lands allotments upon the
Santee reserve. Commissioner Foster
thinks this was an error on the part of con
gress arising from a misunderstanding of
the executive order ot 1683. Nor would
there bo enough land in the reserve to carry
out section 7 of the Sioux mil. So that this
whole mutter rests with the commission uud
congress. This may account for the claim of
Secretary Noble that congress must first
ratify tlio act of tha commission , as there are
said to be several other recommendations by
the Sioux commission , but the question Is
what power had the commliston while pro
ceeding on the basis Of the Sioux not , it they
did , to go bojend Its provisions. However ,
this explains the difference of opinion be
tween Congressman Poole and others nnd
the secretary of the Interior concerning the
necessity for ratlllcation by congress. Of
course , the Nebraska delegation will nrotost
vigorously ngnlnst locating any Indians , *
Santees or others , on the 1'oticiv reservation ,
ns it would bo a violation of the spirit of the
act annexing that to Nebraska when the
Ponca tltla Is closed.

In whlcn ho defines certain posltiocn that the
department will maintain In negotiating with
the Cherokees for the purchase of Indlau
lands in the Cherokee outlet , The secretary
refers to the Illegitimate luilucncoof the ,1
"ChoroUco Strip Llvo Stock association" In
attempting to thwart the beneficent purposes
of the government. The secretary roaches
the conclusion that the syndicate proposes to
outbid the United Status for these lands , and
to enter the arena ns citizens contending
with tno national government. Ho insists
that thcTcattlo syndicate falls within thulinv
prohibiting citizens from making leases wltfi
Indians ; that thb louses of the Cherokco outlet -
lot ore unlawful and illegal ; that the presi
dent has authority to declare invalid the
agreement or lease for Bracing purposes
made contrary to the provisions of the law
which provide that a puiulntso , louse , or
crant of Indian lands , to bo valid , must bo
made by treaty , pursuant to the constitution.
and thai , the president has authority to TO *
move unauihorlzeiUpcrsons from the reserva
tion whenever their presence * bollevod to
bo detrimental to the pcuco and welfare of
the Indians.
The secretary shows that the syndicate
proposes to leasotho land nt a rental of 200-
000 a year for the first live yoaro , JIOO.OOO for
the next five j ears and $720,000 for the last
flvo years.
The government proposition shows that
tl.0 Cherokecs will get from the United
States nt least $7,000,000 after deducting the
payments' already made.
"The cattle syndicate " ho "Is
, snys , pre
sumably 0110 of the ordinary kind of which '
hundreds have heretofore existed and dlsap-
poarcd with the loss of their assets. Ko re
sponsibility attaches to the individuals com
posing the corporation , nnd If it did , they uro
persons whoso fortunes , however great the
may bo to-day , nro liable to the fluctuations
attendant upon such ventures. The prices
offered as rental are deemed by all ac
quainted with the subject as extravagant
from first to last. The government ot the
United States is seeking land only for th6
creed of the people , to futtilsh new homes fern
n vast number of citizens who wUh by their
labor to ruduem it from u wilderness roamed
over by scattered herds. " The secretary , In
conclusion , mws :
The proposition of the United States is not
only fair , but. munificent , while the title to
the use of the land , oven by the Cherokees , i
is prccailous. The cattle syndicate has no
authority to make a lease such 111 proposed ,
nnd by its evident Intention to rival and defeat -
feat the government on which it depends it
forfeits all claim to Indulccnt consideration
aud can and ought ta bo expelled from tbo
outlet. The secretary therefore announces ,
in order that it may bo communicated with
out delay to the Cnerokoo Nation , that In his
opinion those who purpose to make leases dd
so with the knowledge that such leases
aio unauthorized and may ut any
tlmo within the discretion of the
United States government bo sot aside ;
that their interference with the negotiations
of the Uuited Stutes gives occasion for the
government to consider the propriety of layIng -
Ing Its hand upon these cltl/ens acting in do-
llunco of law aud ugnlnst publio interest ana
to restrain them from proceeding further In
this direction.
It Is deemed necessary that such lessees
should bo compelled to leave said outlet with
their property on or before the 1st of June
next , It being deemed proper not to fix the
time earlier , that they may oscaua without
injury or suffering to cnttlo and herds.
It Is deemed to bo to tha best ; Interests of
the Cherokee people to receive ut the hands
of the government ttio fund , the Interest ou
which will give tnem a steady , reliable and
abundant amount for improvement und ad
vancement , in place of the future payments
of a transient consideration , no claim being
to authority to take thO'iO ' laiins , but that no
rhrht is ueioby waived.
If the Cherokups do not wish to sell they
ai o at liberty to keep their lands under the
broad burdens , resting thereon in favor of
the United States , unless the United States
occs fit hereafter to assert its right -by su
perior title , and that the Cherokees shall re
ceive under any circumstances the game 'n- '
dulgcuce and generous ttcatmont they have
