The Plan of the Cleveland Republican
The Vice-Presidential Nomination I
to Be Force I'pon Mr. Heed
Whether lie Desires It or NotThe
Bangor Platform.
New Tork. June 1 Many Indications
today point to a concerted attempt
upon the part of the McKlnleyltes to
force the vice-presidential nomination
upon Speaker Reed with or without
his acquiescence.
At Cleveland this is well understood
to be the plan.
A poll of congress made by the Phila
delphia Press, an active McKlnley or
gan, shows a strong congressional
preference for the Maine man.
On the other hand, Joseph H. Man
Icy, Mr. Reed's campaign manager, ex
pressly disclaims any purpose on his
principal's part of taking second place.
Cleveland, June 8. The McKlnley
poeple are going to support Reed for
vice-president, no matter what Mr.
Manley says. They acsert that no man
has yet declined that office when a con
vention has once nominated him.
Hence they are going to nominate
Reed by acclamation. This Is the pro
gramme, and Mr. Manley's card has
not changed a bit.
Senator Quay believes that the ticket
will be McKlnley and Keed. And Quay
generally knows what he Is talking
about. The point to observe In Mr.
Manley's card Is that the Maine gentle
man docs not deny bis first Intention of
coming here.
Candidates for the vice-presidency
are very numerous. Old Virginia, the
"Mother of Presidents," Is now anxious
to be the mother of a vice-president,
and her sons are now working for
Colonel William Lamb, of Norwalk, Va.
The list now covers a baker's dosen
from each state.
There 1 a good deal of specu'atlon as
t whether or not the anti-McKinley-Ites
will make a light in the convention
over the contested delegates. The
news from Washington today is that
the contests will not be made. The
bosses and "boys" are getting together
as fat t as possible, and It begins to look
row ad If there will not be enough of
Manna s strawberry shortcake to go
round. Already his short cake palace
on the Inke Is running full tlnie
and yet the harmony list Increases to
ftuch an extent dally that be cannot be
to feed the multitude of hungry
visitors that come here.

Proceed with Moderation.
Lexington. Ky., June 2. Nearly all
the Democratic delegates to the state
convention, which meets here tomor
row, have arrived. They were hard at
work all th afternoon, agreeing on a
policy to pursue tomorrow. The sli
ver men scored a greater victory than
they anticipated! and at first they were
very aggressive, but Senator Blackburn
counselled moderation. He finally de
cided to call a meeting of his support
ers. Accordingly about fifty silver
leaders assembled In Blackburn's head
quarters, and for two hours the discus
sion was kept up.
After two hours' debate the confer
ence decided not to censure President
Cleveland and Secretary Carlisle by
name in me pianorm, out to condemn
the national administration In as strong
language as possible. They agreed that
on the money question the resolution
should Instruct the delegates to support
a free sliver advocate for Democratic

national sub-committee concluded the
business of its present session today

$26,000 of the promised $40,000 only hav

because the committee considers 15,000

The City's Municipal Assembly Asks Aid
from the East The Number ol
Dead Largely Reduced.
St. Louis, June 2. Both houses of the
municipal assembly of St. Louis last
night adopted resolutions asking out'
side aid for the cyclone sufferers. The
appeal calls attention to the calamity
which has befallen the city, rendering
many artisans destitute and homeless,
and asks for all the aid that can be
sent. All donations are to be sent to
the mayor or police commission of St
Louis, or to any other committee who
may have charge of the relief funds
This action Is not In accord with the
position taken by the mayor in declar
lng that outside aid Is not needed.
At a meeting of the executive com'
mlttee of the relief committee yester
day much of the time was given over to
a discussion of the misunderstanding
that has gone abroad concerning the
attitude or the committee on the sub.
Ject of outside relief. A statement for
the press will be prepared which will
endeavor to show the gentlemen who
called the meeting for today that at no
time has any outside assistance been
refused when It was offered, but the
issuance of any appeal from the city to
the outside world for help will be
strenuously opposed. '
Mr. Spencer, president" of 'the Mer
chants' exchange, said:
"St. Louis cannot afford to go on rec
ord as begging for funds. We have
nearly ' rilS.OOO collected, and It may
get to $200,000. Long before that time
we win have matters in shape to know
approximately how much we win need.
If it becomes necessary to call for as
slstance from the outside we will do
it, but the necessity is not now appar
The loss of life In East St. Louts,
which has been generally excessively
estimated, Mas assumed far less seri

man and woman unknown. In addi

The lower house of the municipal
assembly today passed the bill appro
priating J100.000 for the relief, of the
tornado sufferers. The general fund
footing up tonight Is $129,000.
Mayor Walbridge has not refused to
accept moneys sent from outside cities,
and has turned f 15,000 thus secured to
the relief committee. The mayor, how
ever, believes that St. Louis should be
equal to the task of caring for the
The sun shone but ten minutes today
and frequently showers and falling
temperature kept up the strain of mis
ery among the unfortunates. At all
the relief stations long lines of men
and women waited their turn to receive
the dally allotment of food. Destitution
In East St. Louis is hourly increasing.
The ladles' relief committee made a tour
of the city today and report 670 families
absolutely homeless and destitute. Two
thousand Ave hundred people were
breakfasted by the committee today.
One hundred families who found homes
In freight cars, were turned out in the
rain today.
The fight for the necessities of life
Is a desperate one. The relief commlt
tee is having a hard time controlling the
poor and making equal distribution.
At present they are spending about
$1,000 a day for food, clothing and cots.
They need $600 a day more.

son characterized the risk of a relapse
into the condition which prevailed be
tween 1S61 and 1879 as a most unwise
and unjust thing: and said that no part
of the people of the United States could
be benefitted by such a relapse.

cratic senators not to vote a want of

of the treasury, who were men of their

The river and harbor appropriation
bill was parsed over the president's veto
today by the unexpectedly heavy vote
of 220 yeas to 60 nays.
There were comparatively so few
votes In the negative that It was found
impossible to rair absent members In
favor of the bill. The Republicans,
with practical unanimity, and 39 Demo
crats with one Populist, made up the
affirmative vote, while the negative
vote was about equally divided between
the Republicans and Democrats, five
Populists voting with them. After
hearing the report of Chairman Hooker,
reciting the arguments in favor of pass
ing the bill over the veto, the house by
an overwhelming vote refused to listen
to any debate, despite the vigorous pro
test of Mr. Dockery (Dem., Mo.), who
denounced the course ta'tpn as "unjust,
unfair and unmanly." The remainder
of the session, mainly, was taken up
with the argument on the contested
election case of Mitchell vs. Walsh from
the Eighth New Tork district and vot
ing upon it. The report of the ma
jority of elections committee, No. 2, rec
ommending the seating of Mitchell
(Rep.) In place of Walsh (Dem.) was
agreed yeas, 162: nays, 89.
By this action the Democratic
strength in the house was reduced to 97,
and that of the Republicans Increased
to 249.
A resolution was agreed to fixing the
hour of meeting for the remainder of
the sesp.lon at 11 o'clock.
Mr. Cannon (Rep., Ills.), chairman of
the committee on appropriation, ex
pressed the opinion that congress would
not adjourn finally before Friday or
Saturday of next week,
Conference reports on the naval ap
propriation bill, and bill making appro
priations for fortifications and coast
defenses were presented and the form
er agreed to.
The latter was the final report of the
conferees, and provided for the ex
penditure of $7,377,888 and authorized
contracts to tne amount oi
The lack of a quorum prevented the
adoption of the report, and at 3.40 the
house adjourned.
