NEW Yon:.:, May 1!).—Elaine has consented, it is said, conditionally to the use of his name at the Minneapolis convention. N haniel F. Page, of Washington, is st.-.yirig at the Fifth Avenue hotel. Ho stated that S. B. Elkins, secretary of wr.r, had a conference with Blaine and Harrison and had received definite instructions from both to present the name of either at Minneapolis, as the Republican nominee for president. Mr. Page also stated that Secretary Ellnns was given permission by both Blaine and Harrison to withdraw the name of either as may seem advisable at the time. WILL CONFER WITH BLAINE. Anti-Administration Men Delegate Clarkson to Visit the Secretary. CHICAGO, May 20.—The Herald'a Detroit special says: The big anti-Harri- son'conclave in progress at General Alger's house "Wednesday night and Thursday morning is the talk of the town. J. Sloat Fassett, of New York, John M. Thurston, of Nebraska, and Jobn M. Langston, of Virginia, were visitors at Ann Arbor. The statement that General James Clarkson was simply on his way from the Hot Springs to New York is vigorously denied by a man who claims to know that Clarkson came here on a special train from Chicago. Th'e real object of the meeting was as follows: A final effort is to be made to draw Blaine into the presidential race. That was definitely decided upon. As soon as General Clarkson reaches New York he will proceed directly to Washington where a secret conference will be held with Blaine. At this he will be shown by convincing figures that Harrison's strength has been greatly overestimated and his nomination would invite Republican defeat. In case Blaine will not allow hia.nam^ to be used Alger will be pushed for the head of the ticket by the entire anti-contingent. COMING HIS WAY NOW. BRIEF NEWS ITEMS. CRIMINAL CULLINGS.

Indications Point to a Walkover for Cleveland at the Chicago Convention. WASHINGTON, May 20.—Recent conventions seem to bave turned the tide pretty effectually in favor of Cleveland, and it now looks as though the ex-president -would have the convention at Chicago all his own way. There is no denying that where there is opposition to Cleveland it is very intense; but then it comes from such Democratic states in the South as will vote for the Democratic nominee whether it be Cleveland or any other man. The anti-Cleveland men still insist that some other man must be nominated, and Burke Cockran, Hill's right-hand man, insists that the nomination of Cleveland so far as New .York is concerned would be a very dangerous experiment. Mr. Springer thinks it is becoming clearer every day that neither Cleveland nor Hill could be nominated. FOREIGN AFFAIRS. The French forces in Tonqain have captured a pirate stronghold, killing 125. Fifty-tliree French soldiers and officers were killed..; At Dublin, in Michael Davitt's libel suit for 10,000 pounds against The Irish Independent, the jury awarded the plaintiff 20 pounds damages. Persia has refused Russia's proffered £500,000 to pay the indemnity to the imperial tobacco corporation, and has decided to raise in London a loan to pay the compensation claims. The Newfoundland government has determined to! rescind the enforcement of the bait act; against Canadian fishermen this season. This practically ends the tariff war between Newfoundland and Canada. ; , The G-ermah government seriously contemplates entirely prohibiting immigration into Germany from Russia, even to the extent of refusing to allow pauper immigrants to traverse Germany en route to other lands.

PORTLAND, May 20.—The Presbyterian general assembly opened during the naming with an unusually large attendance. Dr. Green, the retiring moderator, not being present, Rev. John G. Bihel- deffer, of Redwood Palls, Minn., the oldest minister in attendance, was made the temporary moderator. The assembly spent all the afternoon electing a moderator. Nominating speeches were prohibited. Rev. W. C. Young, of Danville, Ky., was elected on the third ballot. A factor that had much to do with his election was the fact of his location on the border line of the Southern general assembly. The election of Dr. Young it is beliaved will ultimately lead to a reunion of the Northern and Southern assemblies. ITEMS, at Toledo has G. L. LUND. ESTABLISHED 1880. J, J. RYAN. (Successors to C. L.
