Clarkson, of Iowa, chairman to succeed Senator Quay; Parrett A. Hobart, of New Jersey, vice chairman to succeed Mr. Clarkson; William Barbour, ef New York, treasurer, to succeed W. W. Dudley. All the elections were by acclamation. Dennis S. Flynn was admitted as delegate from Oklahoma. A roll call developed the presence of forty-eight oat of forty-nine members of the committee, the only ab- eentee being W. L. Byerson, of New Mexico, and he had no proxy. After the executive session Representative McKenna and M. H. DeYoung, members of the committee from California, addressed the committee with arguments la Behalf of San Francisco. They spoke of the arrangements that had be*n made for entertaining delegates, should San Francisco be selected, and presented a bond guaranteeing $30,000 for the expenses of the national convention. Congressman-elect Campbell, of Illinois, spoke briefly for Chicago. He confined himself merely to reading resolutions passed by business men of Chicago disclaiming; any desire on the part of that city to make a contest for the convention, but promised to do all that could be done to entertain the delegates should Chicago be chosen. Michigan delegates were given the next hearing and -ex-Congressman Brewer spoke in favor of Detroit. He was followed by ex-Congressman Allen, in a brief address, endorsing what all his colleagues had said for Detroit. Senator Stockbridge closed for Detroit. Spoke for Minneapolis. The claims of Minneapolis were ably presented by Senator Washburn and Governor Merriam. Senator Washburn made a good impression. He stated the matter fairly and earnestly. He said enough certainly to convince the members of the committee of the accessibility and the accommodations afforded by Minneapolis and St. Paul. Governor Merriam talked in the same line and his remarks were well received. He dwelt upon the good it would do the Republican party to hold the convention in Minnesota. He referred to the last campaign and said he thought he knew something about the political situation in Minnesota, as he had been in it. North Dakota presented the claims ol Minneapolis through Senator Casey and Representative Johnson. The former stated that North Dakota was unanimously in favor of Minneapolis; that St. Paul and Minneapolis combined formed the commercial metropolis of the Northwest. and that North Dakota and the whole Northwest would be most favorably jiftVcted by locating the convention in '.' 'uii'ioapolis. '.. ... rvther cities then had their claims pve ••'!. •'•• 1 by their different champions, viiich the committee went into gc-i :-.t b^iun and took an informal bailor. After the first informal ballot in Bccvet session the committee took seven more ballots when Minneapolis received twenty-nine votes and got the convention. June 7 is the day fixed upon for holding it. Batlneti Portion of ft Minnesota Town t)«»troyed toy fit*. TRACY, Minn., Dec. l.—A large portion of the business part of this place is ia ashes from a disastrotts fire which broke out on Front street at 11 a, m. The origin of the fire is unknown. It broke out suddenly iu the Hughes building. The wind was blowing a strong galo from the southeast at the time and the flames spread rapidly, taking the wooden buildings along Front street in quick succession. With the poor facilities at hand in the way of water and fire apparatus, nothing of any account could be done in tho way of getting the fire tinder control, and the attention of the people was turned towards saving the contents of t! buildings exposed. The entire row o*. buildings on Front street, from Third to Fourth streets, went down within a very short time, with the exception of a brick veneered building occupied by the state bank, and the flames rapidly spread, sweeping up The Went Side of Third Street. taking all the wooden buildings in range. The first impediment to the flames was met in the fire proof walls of Finch's drug store across the alley from the last building that burned—J. D. Owen's general store. About this time the Marshall fire engine, which had been telegraphed for, arrived and began playing on the flames, which had in some measure subsided and the fire at present is under subjection, although the wind still continues to blow. In most cases the majority of the stocks in stores and shops was saved. The first building to burn, owned by R. E. Hughes, and occupied as a general store and dwelling, went down with its entire contents, as also the building occupied by D. Stafford as a hardware store. The loss cannot at present be estimated. Several families are without homes, and every hotel, with the exception of the railroad eating house, is gone. Some suspicions are afloat that the fire was incendiary, but nothing defin- can be learned. BU$IEB UNDEB SERIOUS ACCIDENT ON TH6 NdfiTH- t,ERN PACIFIC RAlt-ROAD, TWC!T« Men tnattuitl?

WASHINGTON, Nov. '25. — Minister Mendonca has received ft cablegram from the Brazilian minister of foreign affairs, which officially confirms the cable dispatches frcm Brazil about the resignation of President Fonseca and stating that Vice President Piexotto had succeeded him. Minister Mendonca •aid that the receipt of the news gave him great pleasure, as there had been no bloodshed and tranquility will now prevail, and the change will establish harmony among the Brazilian people. He said that Fonseca was Not it Man Who Would CHUBB Bloodshed and would willingly sacrifice the honor and glory of his high position rather than cause a civil war, and as the uprising in Brazil was a national movement, the people not being in accord with the policy of Fonseca, he bowed to the inevitable and retired. He also thought it was the desire of the people of Brazil to support the deposed congress and that President Piexotto would be in thorough accord .with it. The London stories, he said, falsified the condition of affairs in Brazil and at no time did he place credence in them, as they contained many untruths. Minister Mendonca is expecting further advices from Brazil in regard to the present cabinet and what changes may take place in it. SATISFIED WITH -PEIXOTTO. of entrant inietett Mention. ^'.
