The hour when the President will affix his signature to the document is still undetermined, and the proclamation itself has not reached the White House. Gov. West visited the Executive mansion on Thursday, and tried to secure information from Secretary Thurber of the hour when the President would complete the transaction. Secretary Thurber advised Gov. West that it was impossible to predict when on Saturday Mr. Cleveland would sign the proclamation, and stated that on that account it would be Inadvisable for the Governor or Delegate Cannon to make any attempt to be present when tho Presidential signature was attached. Gov. West went again to the White House this morning 1 , and strongly, urg-ed.upon Mr. Thurber his desire, representing the. people of Utah, to witness the act which will make Utah a State, He spoke of the great interest felt In the Territory over the coming event, and the anxiety that the earliest possible news should reach its people. It. was finally agreed that Gov. West and Delegate Cannon should visit the Executive mansion at 3:45 tomorrow morning, and that an interview, if possible, should be arranged with the President, so that both should witness the affixing of Ills signature and receive from his hands the pen, for transmission to the Utah Historical society. Representative Allen and' Junius F. Wells will also be of. the party. It Is expected that the proclamation will Issue by noon tomorrow, and the Utah delegation have reasonable hopes that they will be ab!a to be present on the occasion.
