KANSAS CITY, April 14.—The Star's Wichita, Kansas, special says: Col. Murdock is disinclined to talk for publication and will not discuss the situation with reference to his competitors, but ho said to a Star reporter this morning: "It appears that the people of Wichita, backed by public sentiment, intend running me for governor, •whether I will or no. What can I do? A man who has stood by Kansas as long as I have could not very well afford to turn a deaf ear to such a call. My strength now seems to lie in popular sentiment, not in machine politics." Letters from all parts of the state keep pouring in on Col. Murdock and wonderful power is being brought to bear to gel him on the track again. The meeting of last night has done much to allay all such feeling as before existed in the Republican ranks, and Col. Murdock now feels apparently that with such universal and spontaneous demand for his candidacy in his own county, and widespread popular sentiment in his favor throughout the state, he can successfully combat all combinations against him. egates to the Chicago convention.

A resolution endorsing Cleveland and instructing the delegates to the national convention to vote for him was presented. An amendment was made eliminating the instructions of the delegation and the resolution was thon passed. After tho appointment of a committee on resolutions the convention at 1:30 took a recess until :;:30. ADJUSTED. Differences Between the United States and Italy.

Attention striot and prompt They Will Send a Solid Harrison Delegation to Minneapolis. DKTHOIT, Mich., April »14.—A delegation to Minneapolis solid for the re- nomination of President Harrison will be settled this afternoon at the Republican state convention, which body was called to order at noon, by Hon. .Tas.. MoMillin. There is among the delegates a favorable feeling toward Michigan's favorite son, Russell A. Alger, but it is nothing more than a feeling, and nine-tenths of those] having credentials have been specifically instructed to elect delegates to Minneapolis favorable to Harrison. The convention will also nominate a full electoral ticket to be voted for at the coming presidential election. In the event of this ticket not being" rc- gnizeil It is proposed by the Republicans to apply to the supreme court for a mandamus. TMB, it is understood, s the only manner in which the validity of the Miner electoral law can be tested. Resolutions will be passed to the effect that the law in question is iniquitous and unjust, eulogizing the upright, fair and able administration of President Harrison both in its foreign and domestic policy, denouncing the present Democratic administration in Michigan, especially in its ^refusal to make a sufficiently large appropriation to enable the Btnte to be creditably represented at the world's fair, and* will probably also endorse the reciprocity policy of Secretary Blaine. The sentiment of a majority of the delegates seems to be opposed to the nomination of a United States senator to succeed Senator Stoekbridge, whose- 1 term expires next year, or to take any any hand in the senatorial fight. Michigan's Favorlto Son. DETROIT, April 14.—Tho presidential boom of Michigan's fa.orite son was to-day christened by the Republicans of the state in convention assembled. Russell A. Alger is the name it bears and whether tho action of to-day's convention results in the nomination of tbe distinguished ex-senator at the national convention or not, it stamps him as still a favorite leoder of the Republicans of the wolverine state. He was unanimously recommended to tho Minneapolis convention as a presidential nominee. Republican Kxecutlve Committee.

Reports of work already done and an outline of the plans to be carried out, have been presented by Chairman George A. Brackett of the local executive committee. The only chance for any friction is over the distribution of tickets to the hall. Sofar the national committee has kept tho control of the tickets in its own hands The local committees propose to have something to say as to how a portion at least of the visitors' tickets are distributed. The visitors visited tho hall and pronounced it by far the best for convention purposes ever put at the party's disposal. Nebraska Demoerat*.'

COLUMBUS, O., April 14.—One of the most notorious criminals in this country will walk out of the doors of tho state penitentiary at 6 o'clock to-morrow morning, and become for the time being a free man. His name is Charlie Ward and he is 72 years of age. Ac cording to his own story, which is corroborated by the prison annals, ho has not enjoyed two years of continuous liberty since lie was lfi years old. He was born in Scotland and claims to be the son of a Presbyterian minister. He has been an inmate of nearly all the state prisons from Missouri to the New England states. He is well known ns an expert forger, safe blow er, confidence man, kidnaper and hotel thief. He has been the companion of such notorious criminals as "Blinkey" Morgan, Blank Hank, Dutch Ocorsp and ott'er stars in crime.

About fourteen years ago a philanthropic society at Cincinnati got employment for him in a publishing house, and he seemed to live a reformed life for a few months, but a little over three years ago he quar­ relled with a woman with whom he was infatuated and assaulted her with a knife.

It Is Alleged That an Amicable Settlement Has Been Reached, and That This Government Has Paid for the Families of the Italian Subjects Who Were Victims ot the Mew Orleans Mob. LONDON, April 14.—A dispatch received here to. day from Rome says that a series of notes between Blaine, the Americon secretary of state, and Marquis Imperiali, Italian charge de nffairs at Washington, resulting in a settlement of the differences between Italy and the United States, growing out of the lynching of the Italians at New Orleans. According to this dispatch Marquis Imperiali has advised the Italian government that he has received from the United States government the sum of 825,000 for the families of the victims. This money, the marquis adds, was accompanied by a note from Secretary Maine in which he declared that although the wrong was not committed directly by tho United States, the latter nevertheless feels its solemn duty in the premises. The note adds that Blaine declares that one feels great pleasure that the national government should pay to Italy a satisfactory indemnity. In con Sequence of these instructions given to Blaine by President Harrison the latter hopes that the arrangement will end the unfortunate incident; that the former good relations between tbe two countries will be firmly re-established and that nothing in tho| future will occur to disturb such latlons. In his note replying to Blaine's communication, Marquis Imperiali says that Italy has already with pleasure noted the terms in which President Harrison referred to the matter in his message at the opening of congress. The marquis further says that Italy considers the indemnity sufficient without prejudice to any action at law that may be brought by the ag grieved parties. He also expresses the hope that the payment of the indem nity will result in the happy re-estab- lishincnt of relations between tho two governments. The Report Conllrmed.
