Fairbanks, of Indianapolis, wlll.be made temporary chairman ol' the national republican convention at St. Louis, iin'd lion. John M. Thurston, of Nebraska, will bt permanent chairman, • ' '. . These selections come In i.he naturp of a surprise, as neither had been.prominently mcntlonud during the canvass for'tho'pb'sl- tlons. It had been understood that the selections would be either Meriiam, of Jllimc-jiota, who refused the honor .a month tipo: Uulktiley, of Connecticut 1 ;..A'lpor, !pf Michigan: Evans, of Tennessee: ,^'nrnor Miller, of Nov.- York, or Hastings, 'of Pennsylvania, with Gen. Charles H. Gros'venor, of Ohio, as a possibility. These men wore all carefully considered as to thelr'pcculiar lltnvss for the positions by McKlnley's managers, and for one reason or another wore rejected. During the heat of,the mptilKn John M. .Thurston has becnpne of AIcKlnloy's most active supporters. At one time he was mentioned as the'man to make the nominating speech for Mc- Klnley, and when Forakcr was.given that honor, a deal waa made whereby Thurston was to receive an equally hlsh honor, •\Vhlin Hon. C. W.FalrbanKi. was in Cleveland three weeks ago, he was considered us the proper man to preside over the con r vention during Its Ilrst arduous deliberations. His keenness and sasuclty as one of .the Ilrst lawyers of the Hoosicr state and a leader o£ the state republlca/i forces peculiarly fitted him for tne task. Another strong argument In his favor waa that by thus honoring Indiana, McKlnley would be assured of Its unanimous support, and effectually kill ar.y attempt to joom Harrison at the last moment. McKlnlny Lenders Bllllne tho Town, St L-ouls, Junu 9.—In anticipation at th'/ arrival Tuesday ot the antl-McKinley leaders, the lieutenants of tho Ohio candidate •were busily engaged Monday night In distributing throughout the down-town dis- rlct lithographs, banners and buttons bear- Ing a splendid portrait of McKlnley. Up to the present McKlnley has had things pretty much his own way In St. Louis, but the arrival of Messrs. Manley, of Maine. Clarkson. of Iowa, Teller, of Colorado, FIt'c-r, of I'llnots, and numerous other prominent republican leaders li expected to make a division In the almost universal display of McKlnley pictures. The finishing touches of the auditorium were made Tuesday, arid the decorator concluded-his work Tuesday night. Portrait* In tho Hull. The portraits'of Gen. Grant and Admiral Parrdgut were put up Monday. The great naval commander will look down on the members of the convention from the gallery railing at the east end of the hall.
