INDIANAPOLIS , Ind., April 21.—The hotelB are crowded with delegates to the Democratic state convention,' and so much interest is manifested in the outcome of the day that there are two or three politicians in addition to every delegate on the ground. So far as the presidential issue is concerned much of the prospective interest in the gathering has been oliminatcd. Severa) days ago representatives of the Gray and Cleveland elements held a conference to. discuss the situation and came to an agreement that, for the time heing, has ended all differences. Under this agreement the resolutions to be submitted this afternoon will declare that tariff reform will be the issue in the coming campaign, that Cleveland is the logical candidate of the party, while at the same time the Democracy of Indiana, through its chosen representatives will proclaim unabated attachment to Governor Gray, pronouncing him worthy of the highest honor in tho gift of the American people, and instructing Indiana's delegation to present his name to the national convention, and, further, in the event of Cleveland's nomination being deemed inexpedient by that body to use all honorable efforts to secure the nomination of the es-gov- ernor. This is a practical defeat for the element that has been demanding that the delegation should go to Chicago instructed for Cleveland, and is much more favorable to the ex-governor than had been expected. The delegates at large will be Senator Voorhees, Hugh Dougherty of Bluff ton, and Charles F. Jewett of New Albany, all of whom have declared for Gray, and Editor S. G. Morse of the Sentinel, who is for Cleveland and for no one else. The delegates are all silver men and will vote for a free coinage plank in the platform. Gray does not want the vice-presidential nomination, and if Cleveland-heads the ticket he is not likely to get it anyway, for a semiofficial intimation has gone forth to prominent Democrats here that the first choice of the man of destiny for a running mate is ex-Governor Campbell of Ohio, his second choice Governor Boies of Iowa, and then Palmer of Illinois. Vilas of Wisconsin and Dickinson of Michigan. It was, in fact, Cleveland influence that prevented the nomination of Gray in 1888, ami gave the tail of the ticket to paper currency at par with each other. Resolved, That this convention endorses the wise and patriotic administration of Grover Cleveland; that the presidential campaign of 1802 should be conducted on the issue of tariff reform as defined by the presidential message of 1887. and'that upon this issue Mr. Cleveland is the logical candidate of the Democratic party. Resolved, That the Democratic party of I udiana expresses its unalterable confidence and attachment to its gallant leader, Isaac P. Gray; that itholds him to lie worthy of any honcjr in ethe gift of the American people and that his name be presented to the convention by the delegation this day appointed and in the event that the national convention deems the nomination of Mr. Cleveland inexpedient, the delegation is instructed to use every honorable effort to secure the nomination of Governor Isaac P. Gray for the presidency. The greatest enthusiasm greeted the presidential resolutions doclaring for ex-President Cleveland, but endorsing ex-Governor Isaac P. Gray as the choice of Indiana, should the ex-presidents nomination become impossible. The platform was adopted. Japtha D. New of Jonnings, was nominated for supreme judge for the second district; for supreme judge for tho Third district, James McCabe of Warren was chosen. For supreme judge for the Fifth district, Timothy E. Howard of St. Joseph, was nominated. Shocks Felt Throughout California and Nevada To-Day.

The fight over the gubernatorial nomination is exceedingly bitter between Secretary of State Claud Matthews and John G Shanklin of Evansville. The friends of Matthews claim that they will have seven hundred votes on the first ballot, or one hundred mure than is required for the nomination. There is a large element, however, that favors placing ex-Governor Gray at tho head of the ticket, on the ground that this would be the most sensible solution of the question. Matthews is the candidate of the Gray wing of the party, while Clark represents the Cleveland element. Senator Turpie will probably be permanent chairman of the body. There are sev eral dark horses. • 1 Every county in tho state was represented by a full delegation and 3,000 enthusiastic Democrats from throughout the state crowded the galleries and aisles, The convention was called to order by Chairman Taggart. Ex-Senator Smith, a Gray man, invoked the divine blessing and prayed fo£ party harmony and "that lovo might prevail among the delegates and no ill-feeling ariBe to mar their peace and happiness." ,Thcre were loud cheers when the committee on permanent organization reported United States Senator Turpie as chairman of the convention and Senator Voorhees, Hugh Dougherty, Sharles L. Jewett and Saral. E. Morse as delegates-at-largo to. the national convention. TremendouB applause greeted the introduction of Senator Turpie as chairman of the convention. After it had subsided he proceeded to address the convention. Immediately after the speech of Chairman Turpie and. ttie adoption of the report of the committee on credentials, the committee on resolutions reported the platform, which was read amid cheers. The resolutions arraign the Republican administration for its subserviency to the interests of the money power which created it, and for its indifference to the wellfare of the people; for its broken violations of its pledges to the country to elevate and purify the public services; for its shameless prostitution of public patronage to the vilest partisan purposes, as illustrated by the sale of a cabinet office to John Wanamaker, and for its weak and dem- ogogieal foreign policy which has exhibited the American government to the world as a bully toward the feeble and a truckler to the powerful. Continuing, the resolutions state We favor such a radical and comprehensive measure of tariff reform as shall relieve the necessities of the people and crude material of our manufactories from federal taxation. We condemn the so-called reciprocity policy as a transparent attempt to Impose upon the American people a shadow of commercial freedom for WB substance, in order to perpetuate the existing system of licensed spoliation for tho benefit of trusts and monopolies which are the chief support of tho Republican party. We believe that there should be kept in constant circulation » full and sufficient volume of money, con stating of gold, silver and legal tender They Moot in Council In Sterling—A PIIMIH- nnt mid Profitable Meeting. SiKiu .iNo. Kan., April 20.—[Spec cial.]—The second annual session of the Republican Editorial association of the Seventh congressional district closed lust night, and was in every respect a pleasant and profitable meeting. About thirty-five papers were represented. The programme consisted of largely of the discussion of leading issues of the campaign this year. The editors are uncompromising in their support of a protective tariff as represented by the McKinley bill, and are opposed to free eoinago of silver. The railroad problem and an equitable adjustment of freight rate was given considerable attention, and in this matter it can be safely said that tho Republican newspapers are on tho right side. NEW officers were elected as follows: President—S. G. Meade, McPherson Viec-Presidont—J. E. Junkin, Ster ling. Secretary—Mrs. G. W. Maffitt, An thony. Treasurer—W. E. Bolton. Greensburg. Executive Committee—James Kcl- lcy, Pratt; Victor Murdock, Wichita; John L. Sponsler, Hutchinson; W. S. Allen, Newton, and Mr. 'Miller, Santa Fe. A splendid banquet was tendered at the Hotel Morris by. the ladles of Sterling, and it was a really grand affair, reflecting great credit upon, the enterprise of Sterling people. • The editors and wives left for their homes this morning, .with nothing but pleasant memories of their kind treatment in Sterling by her generous people.

At sun down on that date Palacio's army made UR Anal and futile attempt to dislodge a force of insurgents under Gen. Morn, who were Intrenched at a spot just beyond Opol- ito. The encounter wits brief but furious. They were defeated all along the line and lied in every direction.

Nothing definite could be learned as to the exact number slain but It is oflt- cially announced that the, government lost one-third of its force in the encounter. Of this loss, by far the greater proportion was caused by desertions. Tho news of the battle's result caused terror throughout Puerto Cabelio. It was almost immediately followed by a general, conscription order. The town has some nine thousand inhabitants. Every able bodied man among them has been forced into military service. No one has been allowed to escape duty. tlurden City •Irlelleta, G ABUEN Cirv, Kun., April 21.—[Special.
