Foraker Arouses the Ire of Indiana Delegates. CLARKSON CHOSEN PRESIDENT. CrN-cixxATi, April 22,—When the an rnaal convention of the National league of republican clubs began its session a 1 noon Tuesday in Music hall, Mayor Mosby, on behalf of the city of Cincinnati, made the opening- address of welcome. He was followed by ex-Gov. Foraker, who gave a welcome for the state of Ohio. He spoke in enthusiastic terms of the services to the republican party of Granl and Lincoln, but when he came to Elaine he grew eloquent. He studiously avoided the mention of the name President Harrison, but no particular significance was attached to this until the close of his address, when -he declared "James G. Elaine has given us a magnificent administration." There was intense excitement all over the hall, but it was kept down until President Thurston had concluded his speech. During 1 the confusion that preceded adjournment an Indiana delegate, Mr. Cole, of Shelbyville, caused a sensation by declaring that he would call a meeting to denounce the treatment of President Harrison. He was quickly surrounded by other delegates and quieted. His complaint arose from the allusion of Foraker to BLaine as having "given us a magnificent administration." The manner in which the applause followed ;hat declaration showed that there was a feeling as if there was an intentional .gnoring of President Harrison. The [ndiana delegate was quieted for the ;ime and the convention adjourned. Mr. Cole subsequently called a meeting of the Indiana delegation and proposed that some formal notice of the matter be taken. After consideration t was decided to refer the matter to the committee on resolutions, inasmuch as it was thought likely that Mr. Foraker did not intend to convey the meaning that Mr. Blaine was the ruling spirit of the administration, but that he meant to compliment the administration of his own office of secretary of state, When questioned about his speech Mr. Foraker, said: "I did not think 'of Mr. Harrison at all. Some people must be mighty touchy. They have evolved an insult from their inner consciousness. I think that a great fuss is being made' over nothing." CINCINNATI, April 22.—The leagne convention was late in assembling and many delegates •were not in the hall when President Thurston called the ' convention to order. Excitement followed when a big box oi American tin'plate, forwarded by Congressman JSfiedringhaus, of St. Louis, was placed on the stage and a lively scramble for possession of the brilliant souvenirs followed. The secretary then read letters received. Among the letters read was the following: "EXECUTIVE MANSIOK, WASHINGTON, April 13.—Hon. John M. Thurston, President, etc.— Dear Sir: I ben to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 9th inst, inviting me to attend the fourth annual convention of the Ke-' publican.leagfue clubs to tie held, at Cincinnati April 21 ana 32. Your letter louna roe. la tho press of business incident'to a contemplated trip to the Pacific coast, upon which I shall start in a few hours. I regret that I shall be ' unable either to attend the convention or to give by letter any Extended counsel. The conventions of tha republican party and the legislation of the last congress have, however, very clearly denned and very courageously presented the issues upon which the next contest must be waged. To those conventions' declarations' I gave the assent oi a deep conviction, and to the Important legislation of the last congress my earnest support. If the people of the United 'States will now give the world to understand that the protection and enlargement of our domestic Industries, the extension of our foreign trada by reciprocal arrangement's 1 not inconsistent- with a- protective policy, and the revival of our merchant marine by the methods that all other nations use Is pur settled policy, we will speedily, I am sure, realize a marvelous development and a ' renewed prosperity. Hoping that your convention may be In all respects successful, I ain very truly yours, BENJAMIN HARRISON," The reading was •punctuated with frequent applause, but when the letter was announced from the president of the United States the delegates cheered again and again, and finally rose en masse, waving handkerchiefs and" papers and cheering until the great hall reverberated with enthusiastic applause. Other letters read were Congressman Boutelle, Senator Mandersou and Andrew B. White, of New York; ex-Senator Sherman, Secretaries Foster and Proctor, Congressman Kay of New York, W. Stockbridge, Jr., and Gen. B. A. Alger. ; - . The. chair called for the report of the committee on resolutions. The resolutions declare the death of Gen. Sherman and-Secretary Windom; indorse the wise and statesmanlike. administration of President Harrison,. in- djrsi Speaker Reed arid the republicans of the last honse, declare for protection and favor reciprocity; oppose any attempt to cUbase the coin of the country, but demand such, an increase of the currency as can be made with due regard to the best interests of the country: declare • that soldiers and sailors who served the 'country shall not be forgotten by the rccmblicas party; recommend legislation prohibiting the immigration of pauper; and criminals and persons so alien from us in ideas and habits of though.! that they cannot be assimilated in the body politic; affirm the right of every citizen of this country, no matter who he may be, to cast one ballot and have it fairly counted, and declare the purpose of the republican league to be the dissemination of republican principles. A delegate rather hotly protested against what he claimed to be discrimination against foreign-born citizens in the clause pertaining to immigration. He was ably seconded by a delegate from Wisconsin, who called attention to the fact that oa such a plea as the one involved in this case the democrats had been able to carry Wisconsin and reverse the former republican majority of 25,000 in that state. Gen. Fairchild, of Wisconsin, indorsed the statement and implored the convention to listen to the warning. The chairman of the committee on resolutions suggested' that the objectionable words: "Persons so alien from us in ideas and habits of thought that they cannot be assimilated in the body politic," be stricken out. Mr. Campbell, of New York, objected on the ground that the republican party should suffer defeat, if necessary, for what it believes to be right. The motion to strike out the objectionable words was carried on a division. The rest of the resolu- lution was agreed to and the resolutions as reported were adopted. John S. Clarkson, of Iowa, and W. W. Tracy, of Illinois, were placed in nomination for league president. Mr. Tracy is president of the Illinois league. Mr. Thurston, of Nebraska, left the chair and said that the welfare of the league demanded that a man should be at the head of it who has the confidence of the republican party and is known to be a thorough organizer. Clarkson, he said, was one of the original members of the league and had at all times stood by it, and had an eye single to the good of the republican party. Mr. Thurston's speech was an earnest plea for the election of Clarksoa. Mr. Eyan, of Missouri, advocated Mr. Clarkson's election. Mr. Matthews, of Illinois, withdrew the name of Mr. Tracy, and moved that Mr. Clarkson be nominated by acclamation. The motion was carried amid cheering. The Enquirer publishes the result of a canvass by its reporters among the delegates to the convention as to their presidential preferences. According to LJiat paper it is shown that_o_£, .the...344 delegates- in attendance 22 L are for Blaine in 1S93, 87 f o> Harrison, while ;he others are divided pretty equally setween Alger, Sherman, Reed, Me- Kinley and Allison.
