He received several hundred telegrams ol uonpra-tulutions Thursday night from various'parts of the country. AVha.t gratifies him in'this connection is the interesting- circumstance: that the sunders- were in mmiy eases leading democrats, men who have boon prominent ns dcmocratic'leaders or iii their private capacity ns liberal sub- Bcribers to the democratic cumpa.lgn fund. These gentlemen express their gratification at 'the financial policy adopted by the convention and assure him of their hearty cooperation in the approaching; contest. HoliHrt Leaves for Home. Mr. I-Lobart, who was nominated Thursday for the vice presidency, left the city at an early hour Thursday right, accompanied .by a few of'hisXcw Jersey friends. He gave assurance before his departure" tho.t Xew Jersey could be relied upon to. remain in the republican column, and Ti.is. principal purpose in leaving- St. Louis so suddenly was to, beg-in at once the preparations looking- to that end.' . •••..•• . Speculation on McKlnl«y'» Cabinet. The politicians who . remained Friday were discussing\the personnel ol McKinley's cabinet, In.'the. : ev.entj0f,hl;; election. As a vigoroUH foreign policy would be one of the essential feature* of Mr. McKinley's administration, h« vo.uld manifestly give much care to the eelection of his secretary of state. Gen. Benjamin F. Tracy, of New Ybrk,who was President Harrison's secretary oi the navy, is well regarded by some ol the men whose Influence with McKln- ley will be very great. Gen. Trncy is a brilliant lawyer, and It was an open secret in Washington that at the time ol the Chilian complications, growing out of .the "Baltimore" incident, Gen.Tracy wets the president's trusted adviser on c'li.the Chung-ing- pharos of that em,ba'r- fussing problem. It should be stated ii) 'tJiis connection that Jifr. BJaine^ who the secretary of.state,'was during ' the variety, .of.'th'ese is simply amazing. Opposite the McKinley residence a big tent has beeii'erected, under which the hungry and thirsty wayfarer may find refreshment at the hands of a committee of church ladies. The McKiuley grounds presented a desolate appear- once Friday morning. The beautiful lawn, the pride an<l beauty of Cantonese homes, was bare and brown as ;t prairie swept b}'/Ire. A stream of water was played upon its surface with the hope .of preserving- or restoring it to its former sightly appearance;, but that were a viiiu hope for months to come, Maj. mid. Mrs. MeKinley rose Friday morning- much refreshed by a good night's rest and feeling none live worse for Thursday's fatiguing experience.

Indiunapolta,Jnd., June 19.—Tntereal in a case whichXcaused a profound sensation throughout northern Indiana in 1893 was revived here by the pardon by Gov. Matthews of Mrs. Nellie C. Payne, of Benton countj", who was sent to the female reformatory for four years for seriously shooting her husband. Payne was a prominent druggist of Fowler and one night he was shot while asleep in his bed. The investigation by the grand jury brought out the fact that Mrs. Payne was insanely jealous of her husband and, though reluctant to testify, ho was forced to accuse her of his attempted murder. Friends have been urging- her pardon for some months. Curious Jicnnon for Ulni-rlngc. La Porte, lud., June 19.—A telegram irom Detroit says that Miss Beemnn, of Berrien county, Mich., and J. S. Applegate, of this county, will be married today in St. Louis. The marriage of the couple furnishes the sequel of ri unique proposal.

WasHington, June 10.—Speaker and Mrs. Heed left Washington at ten o'clock Friday for New York,, It is understood here that he will go directly to his home in Maine. St Louis, June 19.—The new republican national committee met Friday morning- at the Southern hotel for tilt purpose of org-jinifcing and becoming acquainted with each other, there liar- ing been a. number of new men placer} upon the committee by the various delegations'. Secretary Manley, of the old committee, called the new one TO order, and i'owefl Clayton, of Arkansas, presided. On motion of Mr. Scot.t, of We«t Virginia, the fc\v vacancies found to exist, in the committee were filled, witb the exception of The territory of Alaska und the District of Columbia, which, owing lo the difficulty ii) making-n selection, was left to the executive committee. The members of the committee having been sounded on the subject, it was determined to eloci the chairman at tin's meeting, instead of leaving- it open until the meeting that will probably be hold in Xew York two or three weeks hence. Mr. ITanna was nominated for chairman on the' motion of Mr. Payne, of Wisconsin, seconded by Pennsylvania, Ohio and Xew York. He wns elected by the unanimous vote of the committee. Mr. Hanna accepted the nomino- tion in a short speech that was received with applause. He said: Spnech of Mr. Jfrtniia. "I certainly apprecio.t'- the compliment »nd the confidence which poc-s with It In offering me this position, which under or- dlnfiry circumstances I should be compelled to decline, l)i;t under the present conditions of affairs my loyalty and fciy love for our candidate Induces rne to gq one step farther and see the consummation- of this great victory for the republican party. "The task which I have had before mo In this present campalRn was arduous, but its conduct was In accordance with strict business Integrity, honor and fair deallnr. I wish to say further to this committee that If Ma]. McKinley Is elected president of the United States he will be elected owing no man promise that will embarrass his administration. What he owes he owes • only to his country; and what he will do will be for the welfare of the republican party. If a pure life, patriotic motives and a firm determination to do his duty • will make his administration a succesfl. tho United States will have occasion to thank God for the nomination made In Thursday's convention." [Applause.] Mr. Mauley was made temporary secretary, and James F. Burke, of Pittsburgh, temporary assistant secretary. Col. Swords, of Iowa, the sergeant-at» arms of the old committee, was kept in that position temporarily. It was agreed that Chairman Hanna should have full authority to select all the officers of the committee, including tin treasurer, which was not even filled, temporarily. At the instance of Senator Thurston, of Nebraska, the following resolution w:is unanimously agreed to: "Resolved, That the chairman ot thl» committee is hereby authorized and empowered, after consultation with the candidates for president and vice president, 10 appoint an executive committee of nlno members, who may or may not be members of this committee, and that the chairman of this committee shall be chairman eac- olllcto of the said executive committee.", Mr. \V. H. Andrews acted as proxy for Senator Quay, who early Friday morning started for the cast. No successor was elected to take the place of Mr.Ho- bart, of Xew Jersey, who was nominated for the second place on the ticket. The committee adjourned subject to the call of the chairman, and it is understood that the next meeting- will be held in Jfcw York city iu about two or three weeks. Mr. Cornelius N. Bliss, of Xew York, has been asked to serve on the committee, and he will doubtless accept. The executive committee will not assemble for three weeks. Mr. Hanna proposes taking- a brief season of rest, after he shall have met Mr. McKinley at Canton on Sunday next, before opening headquarter* aud outlining the campaign. Notwithstanding the strong pressure to which Mr. Hanna has been subject, he will, it was said Friday, establish the headquarters at Xew . York. Wliilc many objections hare been urged against Xew York, for tho obvious reason given in dispatched Thursday night, there is still much to be said in its favor. It is the great commercial and financial center of the country; and in a campaign where liberal contributions are expected, the political managers regard it ns wise to establish themselves in a community where they can keep in touch with the men who manage great moneyed interests. Objection to CloTelmid. The principal objection to Cleveland is based on the circumstance that the presidoaitial candidate is an Ohio man; that his principal manager is an Ohio man and .that the selection of an Ohio city for headquarters would be considered as {riving the country nn overdose of what the politicians regard as the "Ohio idea." It is not unlikely, however, that branch headquarters . niav be opened at Chicago in order that the doubtful western states may be. brought into more intimate relations through such a medium with the eastern nmnaffers of the oaatjxuga. This. was the policy pursued by the demo-, crate in the. c:i-mpflifi-n of 1S32, and it was fruitful of results, one being- the capture of tie slate of Illinois by the lernoorats for the first time since tie •stabiiKhment of the republican party- The native population of Ma*e-bele» Innrl lo estimated nt 160,000.
