MINNEAPOLIS, June 5.—The present indications are very pronounced that the contest before the convention will be one to the finish between Harrison and Elaine alone, t and if this is the case it will be remarkably brief as well as brilliant. The sensation of the day was the withdrawal of General Alger from the field as a possibility in any event. Senator Stockbridge announced to a reporter that notwithstanding the reported determination to bring Alger's name before the convention it would not be presented. He quoted General Alger as saying that he had gone into this contest honestly and with the sincere intention of making the best fight possible. He was a friend of Mr. Elaine and under the conditions that now existed he would withdraw from the field and not let his name go before the convention at TAR SOAP Healthful, Agreeable, Cleansing, Cures Chapped Hands, Wounds, Burns, Etc.

June ;4.—The news of the resignation of .Secretary Elaine created a profound sensation at the capitol. The senate was not in session, but the house was in the throes of filibustering against the anti-option bill. The effect of the reception of the bulletin announcing the event was magical. The telegram was read by the speaker and Representative Dingley. and almost instantly the news spread over the house like a wave of sound. Within two minutes the space in front of the desk was filled by a throng of representative! struggling to get a glimpse of the bit of yellow paper which was snatched from one hand to another. The effect was very discouraging to pei.ding business It did not take the Democrats verj long to decide what view to take of t matter as to the initial stage. It means that Elaine is standing for the noinina tion, said cute and all. But when i came to the secondary result—the effec on the Democratic convention, ther was. of course, a division of opinion Said Representative Dockery, of Mis Kouri: "Fate is with ITS. It means that Elaine is the nominee; and Blaine can never be elected." GENKIIAL AI.GER. ill. General Alger was further quoted is saying that he had had enough of the vhole business and would take no part in it. The New York delegation, the Texas delegation and a number of campaign clubs came in between 8 and 9 o'clock a. n. und kept the hotel corridors swarm- jig. The resignation of Blaine was the :opic on every tongue. It made the Blaine men jubilant but the friends of the president were not by any means depressed. Chris Magee, the proprietor of the Pittsburg Times, and the leader of the anti-Quay Republicans in Pennsylvania, joined the Harrison forces early in the mor.ung. "The majority of the Pennsylvania delegation is for Blaine," said Mugee, "but I am for Harrison. I do uot see yet how Mr. Blaine can be a candidate. There is no doubt that he could have had the nomination and could have been elected if he Empire State politicvmn. Thy resignation o£ Blnine WHS a shock to those gentlemen, while the majority of the party wore correspondingly elated. The delegates on the train held no conference as reported nnd look no iction. It is -tated that it is he intention to ^ elect Mr. Depew CHAUNCEY M. DKPKW.chairman of the delegation and then to pass a resolution requesting him not to present the name of Harrison. This will place Mr. Depew in a position of great difficulty and embarrassment but it is not likely he can be swerved from his intention to work and talk for the renominaticn of the president, How many of the other delegates will act with him is uot yet certainly known as some who have been regarded as friendly to Harrison nre not cmite sure how they will vote. The latest estimate, made by Delegate Parkhurst, of Bath, gives Blaine fifty votes and Harrison twenty-two. Parkhurst is a Blaine man. Shortly after luncheon the train bearing a number of Pennsylvania delegates and shouters for Blaine arrived and the occupants shortly afterwards took possession of the West hotel and with canes uplifted, bearing lithographs of the Maine statesman, they shouted in xinison: "Tin, tiu, American tin, Ben goes out and Jim goes in." This they repeated until worn out and they retired to give the next comers a chance. WILL VOTE FOR BLAINE. Ex-Senator Warner Miller Declares Hlm- welfforthc .Ex-Secretary. There has been considerable speculation as to the attitude of ex-Senator Warner Miller and friends in the New York delegation. It has been asserted and with equal force denied that he will join his forces with those of ex- Senator Platt in opposing the re- nomination of the president, a n d considerable weight has been attached to his probable course in this regard. All doubts on the questions h a v e been set at rest by a conference of Miller delegates held in the rooms of Hon. H. II. Warner at the West hotel. After a full discussion, it was unanimously agreed to support the nomination of Mr. Blaine. Mr. Miller himself was present and took an active part. BLAINE BOOMERS MEET. reply to a question, Governor McKinley said: "I &ni for Harrison—firmly for Harrison. 1 have been for him and I am for him still." "What do you think the effect of Mr. Elaine's resignation will be in the convention?" "Mr. Elaine's resignation has placed him in the field as a candidate. I think it will strengthen rather than weaken Mr. Harrison's chances. He has lost that attractiveness which accompanies uncertainty. I don't know that I make myself perfectly clear." It was suggested that possibly Mr. McKinley meant to emphasize the difference between the position of a man who stood -aloof and to whom the nomination was offered in spite of himself and a man who was an open candidate. "That is it" said he, "I think Mr, Elaine's resignation at this time was a mistake. I think it has hurt him with the delegates and with the people. We could feel the effect of it as we came through the country. The announcement would daze a big crowd such as you have here, but where one man heard it he had an opportunity to think quietly, and I believe the general judgment of the people is that Mr. Blaine has made a mistake." Governor McKinley said he did not know enough to form a judgment of Mr. Harrison's strength. He did not know how the Ohio delegation was divided. Concerning the permanent chairmanship, Governor McKinley said: "I have heard nothing about the matter. I am not a candidate for the place. If I should be asked to serve I should do BO." The reporter asked the governor if there was any possibility that his name would come before the convention as a compromise. "I am not in any sense a candidate," he said, "I will not even discuss it. I take that only two names are before the convention, and that the nomination will be made on the first ballot." InRiUls Interviewed. Senator Ingalls, who was one of Sunday's arrivals, did not affiliate with the Kansas delegates. "I am for Harrison straight," said Mr. Ingalls, "and have been. The sentiment of the Republicans of Kansas is for Harrison. If it was known absolutely to the Republican voters of Kansas that Mr. Blaine was out of the way then surely would they be for the president. Mr. Harrison's administration justified the compliments of Republicans. He has a very grent hold, not only on the 'Republicans, but all classes of the country. I think Ins administration is one of unmistakable excellence. He has displayed remarkable qualities of statesmanship." Mr. Ingalls says he is not a candidate for either temporary or permane .t chairmanship. Mr. Platt confirmed the announcement made in the United Press dispatches about the temporary chairmanship. He says New York will present the name of J. Slo-vt Fassett for temporary chairman. The Harrison men will present the name of General Horace Porter.

Harrison's Mumtger Says the President Is In It to Slay. MINNEAPOLIS. June 4.—General John C. New received the first news of Secretary Ehiiue'.; resignation through the United P r e s s. He was in the meeting of the subcommittee of the national committee when it came. The news was sent to him through his son, Harry New. The general hurried iut in the com- uittee room and I ru mined up M niie of Presi- .loiiN c'. \KW. dent Harrison's friends for an immediate conference. To all i'l' the Harrison men whom he met he told the news, saying that Harrison was in the light to R tay. The news spread quickly through the corridors of the hotel. Lieutenant Miehener, of Indiana, confirmed what General New said about the position of President Harrison. He said that Harrisvii would go before the convention and leave the delegates to determine who should be the iioiuiuee. REFUSED TO BE INTERVIEWED. The President and Mr. jilaiiie IH'cliae td UX, June 5.—A caik-d at Mr. Blaine's residence sho'; tly after the correspondence had been made public, and asked him if he would not supplement it with an explanation, Mr. Blaiue smilingly but deliberately replied : ••The correspondence explains itself, and I have not a word to add to it." The president was next called upon and asked if he was willing to say any- had simply come out three months ago and said that he was a candidate—if he had written no letters. But four years ago when he bad written a letter just like his letter to Clarkson he wrote another defining his position and that let- let should define his position today. Senator Hansbrough and Senator Washburn both stated to a United Press reporter that in t|ieir opinion the situation had resolved itsolf into a- struggle between Harrison und Blaine. ••It will be." they said, "a fight to the finish, and, of course, as there aro btit two names before the convention the re- sxilt will not long lie in doubt." ••Then you do not expect General Alger's name to como before the, convention?" "I rather think not," answered Senator Washburn, "although I have not been definitely advised of that fact. You know that Alger is a friend of Blaine, and has always said, or at least 1ms always been reported as saying, that if Blaine's name was before the convention his woxild not be presented." There is unquestioned authority for saying that the friends of Blaine—that is, those who have been urging his nomination—have the fullest authority for him for the course they have pursued. In fact there is no question, that Mr. Quay and Mr. Clarkson have an authorization from Mr. Blaine to uso his name before the convention during the coming week. Moreover they have had this authorization for ten days. This fact explains much that may have seemed peculiar in the attitude- of Quay, Clarkson et al., when they insisted that in spite of his letter he wouldbu nominated by th ( ; convention. Quay has been thoroughly informed of every projected move of Blaine ami was quite prepared for the announcement of his resignation. Until now it has been bolieved by a great many people that Blaine's resignation did not afix-ft his attitude to the nomination as defined in the Clarkson letter. That the authorization to use his name has been in the hands of Quay and Clarkson for ten days is evidence sufficient apparently to prove beyond a question of doubt that the resignation of the secretary is what Clarkson claimed it to be. "a move preliminary to the presentation of his name to the convention." Speeches by J. Sloat Fassett, Senator Teller and Others. About seventy-five New Yorkers, including delegates and others favorable to Blaine, held a meeting at the delegation's headquarters. The conference was to boom Blaine stock and arrangements were made for supplying all the Empire State men who are willing to shout for the plumed knight tickets of admission to the convention. Ex-Congressman Henry G. Burleigh presided and rousing Blaine speeches were made by J. Sloat Fassett, Senator Teller, of Colorado, and State Senator Edmund O'Connor, of Binghampton. The Blaine forces received a number of additions, the principle being Einmons Blaine, the son of the ex-secretary of state, who came over from Chicago and shortly after his arrival at the West hotel met a number of New Yorkers who were interested in his father's candidacy. He spent a good part of the day with ex-Senator Warner Miller, who also put in an appearance during the afternoon, the last of the famous ''Big Four'' to arrive. Mr. Miller came from St. Lotus, where he has been attending the Nicaragua canal convention. He and Mr. Blaine took luncheon with Mr. Murat Halstead and immediately afterwards Mr. Halstead was interviewed by a reporter for the United Press. He wa.s asked what he thought of the situation so far as ho had been able to study it. ••Well,'' he said, "as near as I can get at it, there are a trille under 400 votes for Harrison and about the same number for Bhvhve, leaving about 150 whose preferences are undecided or \tnknown." DARK HORSE TALK. It Has Suddenly Assumed- Great Proportions—McKinley on Every Tongue. Since the arrival of Governor McKin-1 ley the dark horse talk has suddenly assumed great proportions and the name of McKinly is on every tongue. A private letter from from a prominent Ohio Repiiblican to the Harrison men, just received, said that there is a plan on foot to nominate McKinley if the tssue should GIVES THEM COMFORT.

The arrival of Major McKinley was a source of considerable satisfaction to the other leaders of the president's cause, who have been awaiting his advice and counsel with some degree of impatience and who expect to profit by his personal popularity and influence and his wide acquaintance among the delegates. McKinley is relied upon to more than overcome whatever Ohio iniiuent-e unfavorable to the president's interests that has or will be exercised by ex-Governor Foraker, but this task he will not find a very diftii-iilt one, for Foraker, for the first time since ho wore a delegate's badge to a national convention, seems to have been lost in the crowd. So far little has been .seen of him and less heard. It was not until long after mid- iright that the Ohio special reached the »ity. and Governor McKiuley had retired some time before, leaving explicit orders that he was not to be disturbed by politicians or any one else.

Th« Indiana people went to Governor McKinley and asked him what he would dc about the matter. He assured them that it' they wished, he would rise in the convention and ask the delegates from Ohio not to vote for him. Notwithstanding this assurance the talk about McKinley is heard everywhere., The dark horse movement has brought ont the other minor candidates again, and the talk in political headquarter; is "Blaine or Harrison on the first ba lot or a dark horse." Senator C'nllon has' heard the mutterings of the storm and his lightning rod is in position. Word has gone out among his friends that if Harrison is not nominated on the first ballot he would like to have the Illinois votes thrown to him on the second. Out of this probably rose the story that Senator Cullom had a letter in his pocket from the president authorizing the withdrawal of his name on the second ballot. The Allison and Rusk booms have gathered strength, and even the Alger boom was galvanized into something like activity. WILL KICK UP A BIG RACKET. rived at 0 o'clock twe»ty of in a few minutes L. T.
