TorKKA, Kan., April ».—[Special.]— To-day is tho great struggle in Shawnee county between the Smith and Morrill factions. This county will have the largest delegation in the state convention. In former years the county, has seldom sent a solid, working delegation for any one candidate. They would work the "scattering" racket and get nothing but kicks. It was believed that there would bo practically no opposition to a solid Smith delegation until the springing of the federal officeholders' scheme. But from that hour tho political sky in in Shawnee county has been casting a lurid reilection. The primaries will be held this afternoon. There are numerous tickets in the field. Some are for Welch alone, with an even division of delegates between Smith and Morrill. Some are for Smith and Welch, while others are for Welch but constructed from material favorable to Morriirwithout being instructed. It is difficult to imagine a combination which has not been worked out and sent into the contest. Absent friends of each faction have been called home. Morrill was on the ground all yesterday, and while Smith was absent, his interest were not neglected. Ward caucuses occur' too frequently to be watched. To your correspondent Maj. Morrill displayed some anxiety, and seemed to believe that if he did not secure a solid working delegation from this county, he wonld not feel over sanguine as to the final result. Some of his local workers admit that if they fail in Shawnee my prediction in the NEWS of last Saturday is likely to prove true. They admit that; Morrill is not silly enough to play a losing game when he knows it cannot be otherwise. It is safe to say that on the result of the primaries here this afternoon will do pend largely the action of the candid ate of the federal ring. The stock of Senator John K. Wright is not suffering any during all this ex citement. John has not been groomed by any ring or clique, but has been quietly making many friends. He does not stalk deer with a brass band nor does he blow out another man's brains with a blunderbuss in order to get his place in tho race, tic has done nothing but hunt for men, who were not satisfied with either of the others, lie has left no cracked ships nor broken heads in his wake, and if things fail to move off smoothly from the start, the convention is more than likely to show a preference for John K. Wright, of Geary. Only yesterday I talked with a man just from tho Fifth district, who is well posted on matters up there. He says there is no question about the nomination of J. K. Burton when the convention meets. He says many of the voters who expected John Davis would, with the aid of Reformers Otis and Peffer, immediately revolutionize the affairs of government, and that they would ere this be enjoying the fruits of the reform which would set in immediately on their arrival at Washington, are beginning to question the why of the failure. He thinks that when the men who were honest in the desire to have their wrongs righted stop to reason over the situation, then there is hope for an end of all the calamity craze. He did not believe Morrill would secure more than two counties in the Fifth district. It was his frequently expressed opinion that the Republican conventions to be held this year would look more carefully to the candidates, their ability and fitness, than for many years past. He declared that if any county or Locality had any "favorit son" whom they wanted to thrust on the people, they had better give him a nursing bottle and leave him at home. This would not be the year for any such foolishness in connection with any office, great or small. There is a good-sized boom being tenderly cared for in the interest of P. P. Elder for governor on the straight Alliance ticket. It is only recognized by the anti-fusion element, as he is not considered available as a fusion candidate, principally on account of the report that be has quit swearing. Johnnie Hamilton came up from Cherokee county yesterday and is spending the day taking lessons from the Shawnee ' county boys on how to run primaries. Chaplain Poinsett also came in from Leavenworth, just to "see the fun." Both men are developing considerable strength for the place now occupied by^liilt Higgiris. Tim McCarthy came in from Pawnee county yesterday and will return to the home of his braves to-day. Tim has to.ruu down to Topeka frequently. He was filled with the Morrill business while at Atcliison, and as the boys in his county won't hear any of it; he has to get away from home to let off a little steam to keep his political boiler from blowing up. Hut Tim is all right. He has promised to vote for any candidate the braves want, provided only, that they will allow him to come to the state convention. the state. For some time past the railroad employes at division points have been organizing into local clubs and these have now been gathered under tho banner of a state organization. The object of this movement is to oppose legislation harmful to the interests of the railroad employes, and membors of the order are pledged to drop party affiliations whenever their class is threatened and to support men and racasnres known to be friendly to them.

The two compared notes and set out to find Drumniond, but, he was out of town. V^TEUW - R~EID7 Inlet-eta In the Celebrated Case Kevlvedby the Death of J. F. Beggs. CHICAGO, April 9.—There will be a great turnout of members of the Irish race here to-morrow at the funeral of Lawyer John F. Beggs, the ex-Cronin suspect, who died on Monday morning. The interment has been delayed for nearly a week, in order to afford many of his friends out of town an oppor- 1 tunity of being present. Beggs, it will be remembered, was senior guardian of Camp 20, of the Glan-na-Gael, in which it was alleged the death of Dr. Cronitt was decreed. He was arrested for complicity in the murder, tried witht'oughlin and his associates and acquittal. His death is greatly lamented by the friends of tho murdered men, and it was firmly believed that he was acqu.iiuted with all the rnmnifieations of the conspiracy that culminated iu tho assassination, and hopes have been cutertnined that at some time or other in the future he could have been induced to make a statement, tending toward the clearing up of the mystery concerning that tragic affair. The interment of the deceased will take place in the Clan-na-Uael burial lot in the Catholic cemetery at Mt. Olivet near Washington Heights, which was dedicated as the "God's acre" of the Irish Nationalists several years ago. There is an interesting bit of history growing out of this lot. On the oecasion of the unveiling of the obelisk which stands thereon, several years ago, a photograph was taken of tho Irish Nationalists who participated. In the background of this picture, his features showing up clear and distinct among more than forty others, was Martin Burke, the man who is believed to have struck the blows that deprived Dr. Cronin of life, and who is now serving a life sentence in the penitentiary for his share of the crime. It was through thisD photograph that Burke was identified as the man to hire an expressman to move tho furniture found in the Cronin cottage from a Clark street flat, and the picture also furnished the clue upon which Hurko was arrested at Winnepeg just as he was about to start overland for Liverpool via Montreal. Hl» Friend* will Give A Banquet In I|onor of tile Ketnrn. NEW YOUR, April 9.—Hundreds of prominent citizens will unite to-night in doing honor to Hon. Whitclaw Reid, ex-minister to France. The affair will be in charge of the' Ohio society, of which state the ex-minister is a native, his birth place being Xenia in that state. He was one of the early members of the society in this city and was its first vice-president. While, however, the Ohio people are taking the ini- ative in the movement, the affair is of n. general character, and is in recognition of the fact that he has had the most successful career as minister to France enjoyed by any American rep rcsontative since Elihu Washburne's brilliant discharge of the duties of American minister during tho troublous times of the Franco-Prussian war and the commune. It is generally recognized that he has displayed the highest qualifications as a diplomat, and that he has accomplished considerable in directions where his predecessors failed. The banquet room at Delmonleo's is being elaborately decorated tin's morning with cut flowers, exotics, growing plants and the colors of France and the United States. The guests will sit down at 0 o'clock. OXFORD WINS. A Great University Contest on the Thames To-Day, THE DARK BLUE TRIUMPHANT. lAra* CTUWIIH r .in* the Cnar**.

LONDON, April 0.—The forty -ninth annual boat race between tho Oxford and Cambridge eights took place today. Genuine F.astcr weather favored the event, and as a result thero wa» an immense turnout of spectators. Not less thau half a million people lined the banks of the river Thame* along; the course. A large majority, were on foot, of course, but there were cabs and carriages, oiuuibusscs and cars and vehicles of every description every one of which with its load of humanity, while the river itself was so crowded with row-boats and steam launches and rafts anil river craft of every other description that it. was with great difficulty that the police were able to keep a clear course. Alight wind prevailed making the river a trifle rough, • but not snlllciotitly so to occasion any annoyance to tho AN EXHIBITION OF CRIT- Chi. Mail order Department. Attention, strict and prompt ran! ridge Nlujflo-lIiindoU Beam the cnjro Wheat Market. CIIICAOO, April I).—There was a grand exhibition of clear grit to-day on the board of trade. Temporarily, at least, grit won. Through a host of brokers, Pardrldgo, the record breaking short- seller, whose enemies were trying to financially smash him, poured wheat on the market in a deluge and his losses were enormous. The market in its upward shoot culminated last night. This seemed but to astiffen Pardridgo's dogged determination to overthrow the combination against him. The news was decidedly in their favor. At London the cargoes were quoted 1 shilling higher. Liverpool was firm and from 1)J to 2 penny higher with a good demand. American exports from both coasts for tho week showed an increase. The weather recorded a temperature of 32 or lower in Kansas, Missouri, Southern Illinois and Indiana and in Kentucky. Not: withstanding all the disadvantages of the bulls Pardridgo managed to open the market materially below the curb prices of last evening, 85 cents for May. This, however, was % cents higher than the closing figures on the regular • board and for :i moment the price advanced and touehed 85 ii cents. Then Pardridge's magnificent blufE began to get in its deadly work and under this tremendous offerings the market was crushed down to 84 cents, recovering to 84% @y t cents. At this both the crowd and Pardridgo seemed disposed to wait for some new features. About 10;30 a. m. the market suddenly spurted to 84 % cents. The market was now very nervous and responded with particular readiness to bull news, which together with buying Schwartz helped to put Two Important i'lacen to lie Filled. WASHINGTON,' April 0.—The semiofficial announcement that the resignation of Charles Emory Smith, United States minister to ltussia, is on itB way has stirred up a good deal of speculation regarding his successor. ThiB, with France, makes two first-class missions to be filled. It is known that Hon. Joseph Medill of the Chicago Tribune could have tho French Mission if he wanted it, but his health and that of his wife is such as to preclude the possibility of his undertaking the onerous duties attached to tho French mission. Col Elliott F. Shepherd of the Mail and Express is also regarded as having strong chances for Paris, although it is understood that he doesn 't care about leaving this country till the end of the presidential campaign. Ex- Senator Blair of New Hampshire, who is regarded as persona non grata by China, is mentioned in connection with the mission to Russia. It seems to bo admitted, however, that there is no overabundance of material for cither post. The movement and intentions of ex-Governor Porter of Indiana, minister to Italy, and who is now home on leave of absence, seein to be somewhat involved is obscurity. Advices from Indiana say that ho is likely to be nominated for the governorship by the next Republican state convention, but he says himself that ho has no further ambitions in that line, and is simply awaiting instructions from Secretary lilainc.

OMAUA, Neb., April 8. —An organization was perfected at a quiet meeting in Omaha yesterday that may have an important bearing anon the politics of She Wanted Autograph*. NKW YORK, April9.—From its Washington correspondent the Herald has a story which starts out with the statement that there is a sensation in the treasury and war departments. A handsome and dashing woman is the cause of it. A few days since a woman obtained autographs from Appointment Clerk McCauley and ex-Senator Warner Miller. Upon the advice of Chief Drummond of the secret service, McCauley subsequently called upon the woman and ohad the names erased. At the latter interview the woman showed him the names of President Hurrison,cabioet officers and other dignitaries. McCauley thought no mure of the matter until yesterday when a clerk in Secretury Blkins' office called upon him and asked him if he knew Mrs. Dore, which Chief Drummond thought was the woman's name. The clerk explained that the woman had called upon Secretary Elkins for his autograph. She was told to leave a book and it would bo sent to her address after the secretary had written bis name in it. "What's the matter with you bringing it down to the hotel yourself?" asked Mrs. Dore, "my room is number — and yon can bring it up." The clerk said he would have to be excused. lie asked Mrs. Dore for ret The Beadlug Coal Deal. NKW YOIIK, April 0.—The senate committee to investigate tho Reading coal deal re-assembled here this morning. Despite the fact that the measure has been vetoed by Gov. Abbett of New Jersey those concerned in tho deal say that it will be pushed through, and consequently the outcome of tho investigation ordered by the senate becomes of much greater importance. Witnesses have been heard to-day on the question as to whether the reduced output of coal that is contemplated as a result of the deal will result in a raising of the price to the consumer. The general trend I of evidence is in the affirmative, especially if/tho other railway companies controlling the carriage of coal into New York should enter the combination, as it is expected they will do. Additional changes are being made by the roads concerned as an puteome of this deal", and so far eight trains have been taken off tho Jersey Central and Lehigh and Susquehanna roads,' while several hundred men employed in the various construction departments have received notice that they will be laid off from to-day for an Indefinite period. llethrliiKton Acquitted. WASUINOTON, April 9.—News was received at the navy department this morning that Lieutenant J. H. Hethrington, U. S. N., has been acquitted on the charge of killing Mr. Robinson, an Englishman, at Yokaharoa, about two months ago. A cablegram from Commander J. II. Bartlett, commander of the Marion gave briefly the information that llethrington had been acquitted by tho consular court at Yokohama, before - which he was tried. This action settles the ease finally, as there is no other tribunal than the 'consular court that has jurisdiction in such matters. Hethririgton, it will bo remembered, is the lieutenant in the navy who shot and lulled Robinson, a prominent member of the English colony, on the ground that the latter had been unduly intimate with Mrs. Hethrington. crews. John Klin, who officiated in the same capacity last yoni\ waj the stroke oar for Cambridge, while Pitman, the Eaton oarsman and a brother of the celebrated Cambridge rower, was stroke for Oxford. The course wos the usual one, from Putney to Mortlake, a distance of four miles and four hundred and forty yards. Tho Cambridge team won the toss, and the light blues chose the off side of the river. At the crack of the starter's pistol both crews got away about even, but Oxford by a sudden spurt forged to the front, and by a splendid stroke kept to the head until the Claspcrs was reached. Hero they weroovertaken by the Cantabs, and for several lengths both boats were on the level. At Cabtreo . Inn and Hammersmith Hridge the light blues were well in the lead. In tho final stretch, through a long telling stroko, Oxford ugain forged to the front and ultimately crossed tho lino at Mortlake nearly two lengths ahead of their opponents amid a scene of inteuso enthusiasm. The time was 19 minutes 31 seconds,the best time ever made over thrvpresent course. Not counting the race of to-day Oxford lias won twenty- five and Cambridge twenty-three, one race being a dead heat. To-night tho victors will banquet the vanquished. An immense amount of betting was done, Cambridge being slightly the favorite. - _ w .. Kxecitited. PAWS, April 0.—Anastay was executed at 5:10 this morning. He walked to the gullotine firmly, but was very pale, lie laughed nervously and embraced tho chaplain. He offered no resistance to the executioner. Wlinle.Uuuk Vt-nseU PULUTH, Minn., April 0.—The Spanish-American Iron company, whoso extensive mines are located twenty- four miles east of Santiago, Cuba, will soon make a contract with the American Steel Barge company for the building of a largo fleet of steel whale- back vessels under the patents owned by tho barge company. The iron company has been developing its mines in Cuba for two years and is now almost ready to ship ore. It will ship to Baltimore and Philadelphia, and will be a severe competitor of American mines. It is probable also that this and other Cuban mines owned iu the United States will utterly prohibit tho importation of European ores to this country. A" Ullzutrd In lllliioln. CIIICAOO, April 9.—Another blizsurd has struck Illinois at Bloomington. A strong north wind has boon blowing since noon yesterday, and at 9 o'clock snow commenced falling. It is still snowing and the thermometer is already far below freezing point and Is going down rapidly. At Ramsey, IU., the temperature has reached the freezing point and is rapidly growing colder. Numerous points make similar reports. Iu this city, snow fell for a short time early this morning and a cold wind is blowing. Au Indian gnare. DuTimmi O.

The ghost dance will be again renewed, and as many of the Indians are arming themselves aud refuse to obey the agent's order, it is very probable that troops will be needed to quell the outbreak within the next two weeks.
