DELAY NOT iNDICAtlONS POINT tO QUICK WORK BY REPUBLICANS. it Contest* Are Not Appealed the Chief Obstacle Will Be ftemoveit—Fight Over Resolutions Expected to tie Sharp But Not t'rotrncted. ST. Louis, June 15.—When the Republican national convention is called to order it will be found that the preliminaries have been looked after with exceptional thoroughness. There will be no obstacles in the way of beginning the work for which the convention has been called and present indications are that the meeting will not be of long duration. The national committee has entirely- concluded the consideration of the unusually long list of contests and it is believed by those who have given attention to the subject that this work will D. R. BROWN. JRhocle Island's candidate for second place. ] be found to have been done so well that comparatively little will be left for the committee on credentials. Necessarily there has been no formal consideration of the Declaration of Principles upon which the party will make its appeal to the country, but it will be found that this branch of the work has been by no means neglected. There has been a very general exchange of views upon this important point and much done looking to the harmonization and crystalization of views which it is believed will render it possible for the platform committee to reach a conclusion with comparatively little delay. C. W. Fairbanks of Indiana has been selected as temporary chairman. Other officers of the temporary organization have been chosen and a programme practically agreed upon for the permanent organization, with Senator Thurstcn of Nebraska for presiding officer of the convention. When we acid to these accomplishments the fact that The Presidential Nominee has practically been named it must be conceded that the convention has apparently a comparatively easy and brief task before it. Obstacles may bo encountered, but as yet comparatively few of them arc discernable. Regarding the contested seats the preponderance of opinion is that the credentials committee will not deem it necessary to go into many of the contests in detail, but that 011 the contrary tho verdict of the national committee will be practically accepted as final in a large majority of the contest cases. It is even suggested that a proposition may bo made in the convention to make the temporary roll permanent in all but exceptional cases which would if rs A «»— 40TW- «»•— =35 SPRING 1896. «£: r9 tf^~ -»• «— 2| Our spring fashion ^ ~£ book and catalogue S~ z£ is now ready—waiting S£f ^ for you to call for it. ^ ^ Tells you all about ^ 2 the newest wrinkles in 3 Men's and Boy's Oloth- 2 inif> Hats, Shoes and ^ Furnishing Goods. 112 3 pages beautifully illus::£ trated; will tell you al- 2 so about the Hub Bicycle—the wheel that's only $65 'but equal to any $100 Bike in the world.

St. Louis, June 13.— There is some difficulty about the selection; of a Candidate for vice president, and it is by no means a settled question. Garret A. Hobart of New Jersey and B. Olay Evans of Tennessee are the most prominent candidates at present. There is a feeling that Mr. Evans would make a stronger run as candidate for governor of Tennessee than he would as vice GARRET A. HOBAHT. president, Many people believe that Evans was elected governor of Tennessee and think that Democrats will vote for him who would not vote for him as a candidate for vice president. The question of giving the second place to New York has been considered and Governor Morton, Benjamin F. Tracy and J. Sloat Fassett have been mentioned. The general conclusion seems to be that the vice president must come from outside of New York and as the case now stands, Hobart appears to be in the most advantageous position.

The Fight Over the Platform. The contest in the committee on resolutions is expected to be sharp, but not protracted. As it now appears there will be little or no clil iculty in agreeing upon any of the planks of the platform except that relating to the financial policy of the party. Three lines of policy will be presented to the committee on resolutions upon meeting the different shades of opinion of th? delegates. These are: First—To declare in explicit terms for the gold standard. Second—To take a positive stand for the free coinage of silver at the ratio o: 16 to 1, independent of the course of al" other nations. Third—To practically declare for gold and against any further recogni tion to silver than the present laws give, except upon international agree ment, but without mentioning in terms the gold standard with a few words o: encouragement to the friends of silver Cluivlio Johnson for Secretary. ST. Louis, June 15.—The Republican national committee has chosen C. W Jouiisou of Minnesota for temporary secretary. Speaker Reed's Lieutenants Agree Stand by Him at St. Louis. WASHINGTON, June 18.—The friends of Speaker Keed in Washington say that notwithstanding Mr. Manley's statements conceding McKinley's nomination they will continue in the fight to the last. All day and all night the speaker has been in telegraphic communication with his friends at St. Louis. He has asked them to go into the fight and they have responded that they will stick to him. Tlie speaker's most intimate friends here are indignant at Mr. Manley, and say that besides its effect on the speaker's canvass it will demoralize the fight which is to be made for a straight gold platform under the leadership of Mr. Reed's lieutenant, Senator Lodge. Mr. Lodge, they say, is to be on the committee on resolutions and is to make the fight on the money plank in the committee, and later, if necessary, on the floor of the convention. The speak- r will remain here until Sunday, when 10 will leave for New York. He had 10 public comment to make on Mr. Manley's statement. His private secre- ary said: "Mr. Reed could not believe it, and o stated when he was first informed of he existence of the statement. The ex- iression of that belief speaks eloquently uongh, it seems to mo." AGREED ON A GOLD PLANK. Delegates Prom a Number of States Discuss the Platform. ST. Louis, June 15.—There was a Conference last night at the Southern notel at which the following states vere represented : Maine, Now Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Illinois, Minnesota" and Wisconsin. The question of v financial plank in tho platform was discussed and the following was agreed upon as satisfactory and will bo presented to the committee on resolutions: "We favor tho maintenance- of tho existing &old standard and are opposed ;o the i'rre coinage of silver except by ntornr.'. Dual agreement for bimetallism with 11 •• loading commercial countries of thcM.orld." Tho men in tho conference wero those who will probably represent their states on tho ci -.nniittoo on resolutions. Ci'.llum Calls on lUcKInley. CANTON, O., Juno 15.—Senator Cul- irm reached Canton during the morning and spent the day with Major McKinley. He says there is no doubt but that McKinley will bo nominated and ho thinks tho past 24 hours have insured a sound money platform. He has no second choice. CHANGE OF REPRESENTATION. Comniitteeiimn I'uyiio Will Press His Iteiiolutioi) on the Subject. ST. Louis, Juno IS.—National Com- mittoeman Payne will press his resolution for a different representation in the national convention. He wants the national committee to recommend to the convention the following . Resolved, That the national commit tee recommend to the cunventiou that hereafter the basis of representation from tho various states shall be fixed at four delegates at large and one ad ditional delegate for each 7,000 votes or majority fraction thereof cast in each state for the republican electoral ticket at last preceding election, and that each territory and the District of Columbia be entitled to six delegates. The scenes through which the national committee has passed during tho few days it has been considering con tests will probably influence them to favorably consider Mr. Payne's resolu tion. Bradley Is Out of It. ST. Louis, June 15.—Governor Brad ley has withdrawn. Delegate Yerkes of Kentucky received a telegram from Governor Bradley announcing that his name would not be presented to the convention. Governor Bradley will air rive in the morning to engage activelj in the contest in behalf of a platform declaration for a gold standard. f IS WEEK'S MtW *ae*tlay, if un6 ft. ffaiik Mayo, the veteran actor, died ftt Grand Island, Neb.

HAVANA, June 15.—This city tartled at 0 p. m. by the nofse of two ttccessive explosions which were heard Qt several miles. Consternation pfe- ailed fbf & tittle, as it Was feared that his was ft prelude to ah attack of & eries of similar explosions. Excited hrohgs rushed to the streets, while an rmed party proceeded in the direction rom which detonations had been icard. It was soon found that the tone bridges of C^istina and Concha nd the aqueduct of Fernando Septino were the points that had suffered from he dynamite. The bridges were par- ially destroyed, and the pipes on the queduct, Upon which the city is de- lendent for Hs water supply, Were nuch damaged. It cannot yet be stated low extensive is t$e damage done or low long it Will require to remedy it. ?he windows in many houses in the ity Were shattered by the reverbera- ion of the explosion. There is no doubt hat the dynamite which caused this wreck was Planed by Agents of the Insurgents. t has been their determination, an- ouiiced some time since, to cut off the ivater supply of Havana and so serve to nake it as nearly uninhabitable as possi- ile. The greatest apprehension is felt >n account of the secrecy and effectiveness with which the insurgents have een able to carry out the outrage.
