Tlio most tioUhle cll'oct of the
lircM-nce of the national committee
and the delegations of prominent
republicans from the cities licit
wanted the convention was the un
mistnkahle lllaine aroiuu which per
vaded the entire town, and which is
still hero although the visitors hnvc
motly gone home. If this tueiiH
anything it means that Mr. Blaine
will next year Ih-cuiiu the nominee
of his party, unless he Ksitivoly re
fuses the honor. Whether ho will
do that or not is a iiestion. He
was given lots of opjiortuuitii's to
deline his osition this week, when
he was called on hy every rejiuhli
can of prominence who was in the
citv, hut he savs nothing, wh'le
those close to him sav that he will
accept the nomination if it comes to
him with anything like unanimity.
Meanwhile, President Harrison is
still in the field, and his friends re
gard the selection of Miuui'asihs
lor the convention as a victory for
him, hut just why they do so is
pti.zling to ordinary jieojile, as the
MinneajKilis and St. I'attl delega
tions that were here were all Blaine
men, and they did not hesitate to
say that nobody else was "in it," so
far as Minnesota was concerned.
President Polk of the national
farmers' alliance exjircsses the inter
esting opinion that the democratic
and rejiahlican parties are on the
verge of coalescinc;, and he cites as
torroherative testimony editorials
in leading democratic ncwsiaK'rs
favoring the reelection of Senator
Sherman. Col. Polk said: "1 would
suggest that the democrats nominate
Cleveland ami Ilariisou and the re
publicans Harrison and Cleveland
next vear. In that way Wall street
would he certain of compassing its
ends, for both urtics are under its
domination." When asked uhat
nrosjiect there was of the alliance
having a candidate of its umi Col.
Polk reiilied: "Well, the meeting
to In held on the '-''Jnd of next Feb
ruary, robubly at St. Louis or Cin
cinnati, instead of here, as at first
projKised, will decide that iUettion."
The alliance in the eighth Vir
ginia congressional district, jtlnt

president of the working woman's

called on President Harrison this
week and reiiiested him to recom

A Portland wool merchant was
sjictiking about the situation of wool
in general throughout the country
and in Oregon in particular. ife
said- "We have no such amount of
wool in this section as we used to
have, nor, is it the same in any
part of the country. Sheeji arc go
ing to mutton too fast. People arc
liecoming enormous mutton eaters.
Mote stoek is reared now than ever
before, it is true, but it goes to the
butchers. It is one of the reasons
why Australia has Mich large wool
interests in this country. Sheep
are reared and kept in that country,
and year after vear furnish their
share of wool ami progeny.
There if no moll consumption of
mutton there as here. We will
either evontuallv have to stop kill
