Holds a Conference With National Chair

The l.t'iiders Not iu favor of Stagger

on the Currency Question" Work
on the Letter of Acceptance. .
Cleveland. July 26. Major McKlnley
ami Murk Hunna, chuirman of the Re
publican national committee, have been
In conference most of the day and even
ing at Mr. Manila's beautiful suburban
home on the lake side. Major McKIn
ley returned from Canton last evening
anil was at once driven to Mr. Manna's
home. Although Major McKlnley had
been In Cleveland most of the week
alio! had been a guest ull of that time
at Mr. Manna's house, the candidate
and his manager hud no opportunity to
discuss the forthcoming campaign. Ma
jor McKlnley said today:
"Mr. Manna and I have had but one
extended talk since my nomination, and
now 1 lind that there are scores of mat
ters which demand attention and dis
cussion with Mr. Hunna."
The campaign has been outlined In a
general way only by Mr. Hannu and
his committee. They do not know what
turn affairs may tuke iu reference to
another Democratic ticket and of ne
cessity their actions ale somewhat lim
ited in scope und significance by the im
perfectly developed situation which
confronts them. lTnder the clicuui
stunces the most that can be done Is to
have campaign literature of an In
forming character quickly prepared and
widely circulated.
Senator Sherman, who was here two
or three days lusl week to participate
in tile centennial exercises, is somewbul
alarmed at the manifestations of the
silver sentiment in certain sections and
communities. Me told Major McKlnley
that his voluminous correspondence
was laden with inquiries about the
money question, and he was of opinion
that most active measures to combat
the silver sentiment ought to be taken
at once. Me urges both Mr. Manna and
Major McKlnley to have the speaking
campaign begun at once, and said he
was ready and willing to take the stump
at a moment's notice. Oilier Republi
cans of prominence, such as Senator
Haw ley and ex-Governor Merrluin, of
Minnesota, have expressed themselves
in pretty in a h the same manner to
both Major JcKinlcy und Mr. Manna.
Major McKlnley and his manager huve
reached the conclusion that the best
results this year will be attained by
holding lurge. Indeed, uncommonly
large number of political meetings.
It is believed that It will be dltllciilt
to get people to read heavy cougreb
slolial speeches on the money question,
or other long documents. On the other
ham! there Is abundant evidence of a
lively demand for clear, crisp, simple
talk on the money question, and for
shmt articles and leaflets bearing upon
tt. In short this year the committees
of both Parties will undoubtedly spend
their money to keep hundreds of speak
ers at work in the field Instead of send
ing out millions of dreary documents
as has frequently been done. Ma
jor McKlnley und Mr. Hanna are of one
iiilmi upon this point, and the necessary
orders to the clerk In churge of this
work will be tlven out at once.
When Major McKlnley settles down in
Canton again this week, he will begin
to think seriously about bis letter of
u'i'citunie. Me expects to begin work
on It williiu ten days and may have a
draft of it complete within n fortnight.
It is not his Intention to make it public
I'm 11 month or so, however. Me wants
to see what I urn events will tuke and
needs something to determine the ulti
mate cast which he shall Rive to the is
sues of the campaign. The letter of ac
ceptance will b a sort of tlnul. supple
mentary, up-to-date pint form and the
grout work of the cunipalgn will be done
on the lines which It Indicates. Major
McKlnley will prepare this document
with greutcure and It will be one of the
most important utterances of the cum
Chairman Hanna Will Meet Member of
the Executive Committee at New
York on Tuesday Next.
Cleveland. July 20. M. A Hanna will
reach New York next Tuesday and
there will find awaiting him Senator
l'ructnr, Hunitlel Fessenden, Oeorge If.
I.yman. P. l. Cheney, Frederick Gihbs,
C. II. Hrayton, Uarrett A. Mobart. Jo
seph H. Mauley, Senator M. 8. Quay,
Powell Clayton. N. B. Scott und gen
eral William M. Osborne.
There ure many things to be consid
ered. The appointment of Cornelius N.
Hllss as treasurer of the executive com
mittee Is expected to be made public
early in the week.
In discussing the campaign, Mr.
Hanna today suld:
"The infatuation of a considerable
portion of the people of the west with
the free silver craze may be attributed
Very largely to the seductive form In
which the free silver advocates have
put forward their side of the financial
question. To offset the effect thus pro
duced we have decided to scatter broad
cast quantities of literature calculated
to present the money lsRUe in Its true
light. Another feature of this canvass
will be the active participation of the
holdups In CmCAQO.
The Kong und Short Combination En
ter Grocery Mtore.
Chicago, July 26. Shortly after tight
o'clock lust evening store hold up No.
21 took place when two young men en-'
tercel the Jewelry store of C. M. Robert
son, of No. 187 North Clark street, and
asked to be shown several articles of
Jewelry which they endeavored to pock
et. Mr. Robertson, however, got the
drop on his visitors and locking the
door to prevent their escape held them
at bay with a revolver until the police
came to his assistance. At the police
station the young men rave their names
as James flobtusan and Frank Har
per. The police clajm to know Robin
son as a tough character. , '
Store hold-up number 22. was suc
cessfully carried out about 9.30 o'clock
when the "long" and "short" combina
tion entered the grocery store of James
O'Keilly, at 134 Morgan street, and
while one man held a revolver under
Mr. O'Reilly's nose and robbed him of
his watch, the other scooped $15 out of
the money drawer and then both es
caped in the darkness.
Maiue Candidate lor Governor lie
dine lo Swallow Chicago Ticket.
Portland, Me., Jly 26 Kdward 13.
Wlnslow Will decline the Democratic
nomination for governor of Maine. This
decision, arrived at, means several
things. It means that from this time
there will be in this state a stand-up
tight In the Democratic party between
the two factions.
Mr. Winslow decided today, after a
full exchange of opinion, to write a let
ter of deelinutlon to the committee that
bus not Hied him of his nomination by
the stale convention last month. . As a
gold man he is not ready to endorse
Bryan and Sewull, dlul so told the gen
tlemen who were present at the confer
ence this morning.
The silver men assumed the offensive
soon ufter the return of Mr. Sewall
from Chicago, und they finally made un
outright demand that Mr. vYtuslow, in
his letter of acceptance, should endorse
the nomination of Bryan and Sewall, re
ptidiute the platform adopted by the
state convention, and endorse the free
silver plank of the Chicugo platform.
Mr. Wlnslow today suld:
"I have decided lo decline the iioinl
nutloii. 1 have not been forced from
the ticket- no one could force me from
thai but I could not consent to the -munds
of the free silver men. Further
than this I huve nothing to say at this
lime." ,
Whether or not the Democrats will
call another convention is doubtful. Mr.
Wllislow's letter of declination will be
ready In a few days, and It will be a
strong statement of his views on the
llna'ueiul question and, In effect, un ad
dress to the Democratic party in the
states to stand by u gold standard.
It In Likely to Ileal ttie Schisms und
Revive Home Rule.
London, July 26.-The Irish National
convention, which opens In Dublin mi
September 1, Is shaping toward a
greut historical gathering. Through
out Ireland und In the populous centres
of Kngluud und Scotland the Nation
alist societies are appointing delegates
und discussing the probable platform
of the convention with the heartiest en
thusiasm. Advices from ,Huiilh Africa and Aus
tralia are like those from the Culled
Stutes und Cunudu. From every quar
ter of the globe where a nucleus of
Irishmen can be found sufficient to
form an association, delegates are com
ing. The convention will not only rep
resent the mass of the Irish luce, but
will ulso have besides a Working lev
erage of money toward the organiza
tion of a great united party. That the
convention will heal existing schisms
and gent-hate home rule seems assured.
Mr. Healeyund his followers will be
present at the convention as friends to
itrt alms. Outside of the Kugllsli press
no one yet credits Mr. Redmond and his
section with any desire or dtslgn to
thwart this gieut uutlouul movement.

Berlin, July 26. Count Goluchowskl,

Interview with Count Nigra, the Italian
ainbussudor to Austriu, und since then
Count Nigra has been summoned to
Rome by the Marquis Visconli- Venostn,
the ltaliun minister of foreign affairs. comings and goings of diplo
matic chiefs cannot be attributed to
any other cuuse than the gravity of
the situation in the east. A concert of
the powers has failed to effect any
good results as has already been stated,
und the events which ure now taking
place completely overwhelm diplomacy.
According to telegraphic advices re
ceived here yesterday the rising of til"
Insurgents In Mucedouia has become
extremely formidable. Greece, while
pretending to tuke stringent measures
uguliist any persons engaging In a raid
upon the Macedonian frontier, bus al
lowed upwards of six hundred men, ail
of them armed to enter Macedonia from
Greek territory. These men ufter sur
prising and cutting to pieces the Turk
ish troops at Motissu. succeeded ill re
pulsing a slrong force of Turkish sol
diers which hud been Relit from Salonlc i
to reinforce the Moussa troops.
A dispatch to the Vossische Zeltung
says that the reliefs (reserves) who
huve been culled out under un Irade
from the sultan, ure showing a dispo
tioll to revolt In consequence of the fuet
that their pay Is very much hi arrears
and the rations which are being issued
to them are very bud in quullty and
Very small In quantity. A special dis
patch received by the Nette Freie Press
from Sulonlca on Thursday suys that
the statements mude by the Turkish
officials concerning the situutlon ure all
calculated to conceal the desperate con
dition of affairs In Macedonia. Hard
fighting Is going on almost every day
at Druuinltzu. Series and ull points in
the PeiTm mountains. The Turkish re
serves at Prlssreiid, Preshtlua und else
where In that section are being
equipped aiid sent to the front as rapid
ly as possible, and It Is estimated that
the total number of Turkish troops con
centrated on the Macedonian and Bul
garian frontiers exceeds 7,000 men.
Kven this force, however, has not been
found sufficient to make any headway
against the insurrection, which under
tlie Inlluences of successes already
achieved by the Insurgents In the Held,
Is becoming stronger every day.
Stimulated by these and similar re
ports, seiui-otllclal newspaper organs
like the North German Gazette and the
Cologne Guzette ure. taking a more
definite tone In Ihelr articles comment
ing upon the gravity of the situation.
Tlie North German Gazette reproduces
an urtlcle from the Cologne Gazelle
which declares that unless the powers
