"Haul it ilown," he shouted "cut it down." The suggestion won enough and forward darted one of his followers and slashed viciously itt the banner. It was u little girl who came to the rescue at this juncture. She wore an Alger badge and she lifted the banner high out of reuch. A great shout went up from the crowd for the girl and for Blaine. The Fort Wayne contingent had by this time recovered their senses and hustling Shiel into their room, they shook their fists under his nose in the •WILLIAM V7A1WER. wildest manner. There was almost riot at this. The Harrison men saw the fatal mistake that had been made and made efforts to quell the yelling by crying "peace." Yet the blood of the anti-Harrison men was up, and they refused to be mollified. They protested in the most vigorous manner that it was war to the knife. "If Harrison is nominated." they shouted "we will die with famine in Indiana. The state cannot be carried for Harrison never, never, never." The incident aroused a very bitter feeling and the Harrison men were very shaky over the effect that it would have. election as the Iowa member of the national committee was made unanimous and by a rising vote.

Vlatt evidently has control of affairs in New York for the meeting of the delegation this morning went along smoothly, and was almost a love feast, things going through cut and dried. All the members of the big four were present. The most significant events of the meeting were the selection of Warner Miller for permanent chairman of the delegation, on the nomination of Mr. Piatt, and Frank S. Wltherbee, of Essex county, for member of the national committee, on nomination of Mr. Holland, who has a fight with the administration. No attempt was made to poll the delegation, and while Mr. Piatt says fifty are for lllainc his lieutenants say the Hlaine support will run up to fifty-four. , The Harrison men continue to talk of Gen. Horace Portor as their candidate for temporary chairman but thus far have not come to any definite con- elusion. A meeting was held by the Colorado delegation this morning at which Senator 13. <>. Woleott was elected chairman. The delegation is for Hlaine to a man. this morning and lcr chairman. Pronounced a Fake.

It was unanimously decided to present the name of tlen. Alger, and the nominating speech, will be made by Col. Duflleld, as heretofore stated in these dispatches.

From there the column marched into the rotunda of the hotel and here there The lurilumt Delegation.

The latter made an attempt to turn . the incident into a Harrison demonstration, but their cheers for the president were quickly drowned by cheers for lllainc und the people were pressed to tho wall and crowded into the corridors. There followed a scene of exultation and the club's banners were waved wildly in the air as cheer after cheer arose for James <}. Blaine. At this juncture, a Blaine man shouted "Foraker, Foraker," and immediately the cry was taken up until the corridors rang with the demand for the lluckeye leader. The eloquent ex-governor stepped to the front and delivered a speech which was repeatedly cheered. During its course he said: "1 congratulate you gentlemen of the Young Men's Republican Blaine club that in the contest you have a vote for the people's choice. [Voicferousapplause.) Without disparagement to any you have a right, gentlemen, to support him and support him you will.

[Speelttl Correspondence.] NEW YORK, May 20.—Grover Cl'-.i- land's age io in dispute. It is snin'l wonder that the friends of Mr. Cleveland are in doubt when biographers and historians disagree. That was just where tho rub caino, because when tho question vras first broached every ono consulted books to fortify his posii ion. When the books were compared and found to disagree about tho ex-prosid cut's birthday the controversialists were as much at sea as ever. This mystery gives sest to those who are seeking the truth. George Parker was the first to write the story of Grover Cleveland's life for general circulation. When half of the disputants learned this they assumed •that, owing to the biographer's admiration for Mr. Cleveland, Mr. Parker had understated the ago of the ex-president. Those who took that view of the mattev held that all biographers who came after Mr. Parker cribbed that purt of his book relating to Mr. Cleveland's natal day and inserted it in their own works. Those who take that view of it hold that their position is sustained by the fact that only the most obscure and less meritorious works have used Mr. Parker's figures, while more reliable books differ widely in tho days they fix for the birthday of Mr. Cleveland. As the authors who have been asked to explain tho mixture of thoir dates stand to their colors without deigning to explain, it is more than probable that the question will never be settled to the satisfaction of the disputants. Some authorities fix Mr. Cleveland's ago as low aa fifty-two, while others cite dates and places to show ho is fifty-seven years old. Campaign biographies figure that Mr. Cleveland is between fifty-tbreo and fifty-six, and leave readers to settle the matter to their own satisfaction. Wharton's "Lives of Public Men" says that Mr. Cleveland was born "July —, 1884, in Essex county, N.i Jv" Wehman's "Biographical Diotionary" asserts that he first saw day on March 14, 1880. Boyd's "Lives of the Presidents" figures that Mr. Cleveland was born on March 18, 1837, and George Parker's biography of him agrees with Boyd. Moody's "Men of Our Times" finds that Mr. Cleveland came to light on Feb. 22. 1880, and Van Orden's "Famous People of All Ages'' says, "Stephen Grover Cleveland was born on March 18, 1887." Throe of the books cited from agree that Mr. Cleveland was born on March 18, 1887; while of the remaining three each gives a different date and all fail to say where he was born. Another statement that has set the arguers by the ears comes from Buffalo and says that Mr. Cleveland is on the long side of sixty. Although it at first annoyed the gentlemen that began the controversy, they now set the last report down to the discredit of Mr. Cleveland's opponents. Still they aro groping in the dark. Every mail brought Mr, Cleveland a batch of letters from men who wanted to learn how old he was to the minute. The pertinacity of these seekers after knowledge has annoyed the ex-president beyond measure. After replying to several hundred letters, in which he gave his ago as fifty-five, he ceased answering such letters. A friendly acquaintance, Mr. Cleveland said, suggested that he' have several thousand slips printed with "55" on each one's face, so that they might be sent as answers to correspondents. Mr. Cleveland was asked if he could explain why men were prone to rely on unreliable printed matter instead of his own words. Ho smiled and said guess it is to be attributed to what some call tho perversity of human nature. It is a matter of no moniont to mo who learns my age." Nevertheless, the truth seekers, as they believe themselves to be, aro pursuing the mutter into tho public libraries, where they hope to learn something that will convince them one way or another. Many who hoped to obtain new facts to prove the mellowness of Mr. Cleveland's age have journeyed to Caldwell for that purpose. Although Caldwellites point with pride to Mr. Cleveland as their townsman, those who Burvive in that drowsy littlo village know little or nothing about his birthday. George Parker, one of Mr. Cleveland's stanch- ost friends, and the author of a gilt edge biogruphy of the ex-president, says he is constantly pestered by writers of impertinent letters calling on him to Bay what records he used to base his assertion that Grover Cleveland was born on Murch 18, 1887. Other communications to Mr. Parker on tho same topic insinuate that Moody, Welunan and ho contrived In their dates to deceive tho public as to Mr. Cleveland's birthday. F. G.

Several prominent literary men of Paris recently conceived the idea of making investigations among the beggars on the boulevards by disguising themselves as members of the bogging fraternity and soliciting alms. They succeeded beyond their utmost expectations, both in discovering fraud in cases of counterfeit cripples and blind men. and by the liberal fees which they themselves received. A good story is told of a number of these bogus beggars calling upou the Due d'Aumale, with appeals forrelief, toeach one of whom tho duke gave five francs. At last, however, a genuine beggar ap peared, to whom the duke said: "I have relieved about twenty mendicants of letters to-day, and I recognized thorn all, in spite of thoir rags; but 1 don't know you; yon must be a bogus literary man.
