LAST NIGHT'S BALLOTING.
CnicAuo, .June 23 There was great
confusion eailv this morning when the
Slate of Alabama, was CBlled and it was
with difficulty that the chairman made
himself heard, to announce the scatter
ing vote of the State. Tbe next vote,
Arkansas, was solid 16 for Cleveland
and was greeieJ with storm of applause.
The call proceeded without incident
until Illinois was reached, when tl.e
chairman announced that on a poll of
the delegation there were Sti votes for
and 12 agaiiiBt Cleveland. Under the
rule he cast 48 votes for Cleveland.
Gentlemen, the chairman said, wished
to change their votes.
The Jsew York delegates applauded
the Louisiana vote which gave Cleve
land only 3. The Announcement of the
Maryland vote was awaited with inter
est. When it was announced as 9 for
for Gorman there were inquiries or the
missing half. The chairman explained
that Morgan had half a vote and he was
When Collins announced the vote of
Massachusetts he said he desired to say
the one vote for Kussell was against the
president of the delegation. Cochrane
jumped into an aisle and demanded the
regular order. Collins as he took seat
said he would not take instructions from
New York even on that question. An
excited delegate jumped up and said
for delegate who voted (or Governor
Kussell would not take instructions
them Collins. He was silenced by the
Then the roll call proceeded quietly
until New York was reached. Her 72
votes, solid for Hill, was greeted witii
applause. The Ohio vote was awaited
wi h interest, and when it gave 10 votes
for Hoies, the Iowa men set up a mighty
yell. As the roll call proceeded the ex
citement became intense. It culminated
when Alaska cast her two votes for
Cleveland. There was growing excite
ment by both the Hill and Cleveland
leaders around the Arizona delegates
waiting the announcement of their vote.
It had been supposed that Arizona and
New Mexico, which had been given ad
ditional representation in the conven
tion, would vote with the anti-Cleveland
people. When tbe chairman of the
Arizona delegation got the floor and an
nounced five votes forCleveland there was
wild and renewed cheering and much
contusion both in the gttlleries and on
the floor. It was impossible to transact
business. Sheehun, of New York, came
up the aisle and demanded that order
be restored and Alaska was again
cheered. The Distiict of Columbia
was called and cast her two votes
for Cleveland. That gave him but two
thirds ol the votes. New Mexico settled
the question the next minute when she
announced lour votes for Cleveland.
The delegates filled the aisle and stood
on their chairs. Michigan got out her
banner for a demonstration but
there was more conversation than
cheering and the banner was
put away while the secretary, with a
cust-iruu voice, continued the call of the
roll. Every other vote was for Cleve
land and when the roll call was com
pleted ho had tilt) 2-3.
A Maryland delegate got on his chair
and tried to move that the nom
ination be made unanimous, but
the chairman declared him out of
order hb the result of the vote had not
beun announced, A number of dele
gates tried to obtain recognition but the
confusion was such that they could not
be heard. A South Carolina delegate
went to tbe clerk's and had his vole
changed Irom iiuies to Cleveland on
account of error. The Texas delegation
changed its vote to 30 lor Cleveland ;
the West Virginia delegation to 12 for
Cleveland; the Maryland delegation to
Id lor Cleveland; the Kentucky delega
tion to 12 lor Cleveland.
Mr. Neill, of Ohi , moved to susjiend
the rules and make the nomination by
acclamation. He was ruled out of
order. luniel, of Virginia, took tbe
piatfurui and moved to make the nom
lianiol'B remarks excited groat en
thusiasm, but tbe chair was unable to
get order, lor the crowd of New York
people won) crying out to Governor
Mower, Lieutenant-Governor Sheohan
and others of the New York delegation
to suciiiid the motion, but tbe
New York delegation sat silent
when the vote was put and
from other parts of the hall came some
emphatic uegat.ves. The conven
tion hissed at this, and as
the hissing continued Governor
I'lower got on his chair. His lips
moved but the words could not be heard
beyond the Inails of the circle just
around him. He was trying to move to
make the nomination unanimous. Those
who heard him cheered.
Hourke Cochrane got to his feet. He
had a weary air as he held his hand be
hind his head and addressed the chair:
"As there was some expression of dissent
uttered in the neighborhood when the
motion was made to declare the nomi
nation unanimous and no roll
was called, 1 deem it my duty to
statu that on the motion to
make the nomination unanimous the
vote ol the Statu of New York in full
submission to this convention was cast
in the aUiriuative."
This announcement was greeted with
cheers from all parts of the hull, and
there were cries of "question." The
chairinuii put the quest ion again and this
time it was carried without a dissenting
vote. Then Tom Dickinson got the
Moor and on his motion at 3:47 the con
volition adjourned to 2 o'clock this alter
Ciiu'Ao, June 2.1 As usual the dele
elites were slow in assembling and it
was 2:-!f p. m. before the chairman
i-annud for order.
The II 'it business was the cull
of the roll of States for
the nomination of candidates for
the vice presidency. Judge Morse,
Stephenson, and Gray were placed in
nomination. Iowa refused to present
the name of Boies.
At 4:22 the call of the roll of States
(or the lirst ballot began.
Ciiii'Aiin, June 2J General A. K.
Stovensou, of Illinois was nominated for
vice president on the tirst ballot

Gray by different States. This
is the work of the Grand Army who
were strongly for him pledging the elec
toral vote of Illinois it he were placed
on the ticket. New Y'oik warmly sup
ported Stevenson, and the convention
chose him as a means of conciliation.
Washington supported Gray.
Toe convention adjourned sine die at
5:18 p. in.

He is a lawyer and has served several

New York, June 23 The Sun this
morning savs: We tender the assurance
of our admiring salutation to William
Collin) Whitney, the cleverest politi
cian of the day. The Democratic party
of this State have made a grand and de-
termined fight against the third nomin
ation of Grover Cleveland. They have
presented the facts and arguments
which had convinced them that if his
candidacy should be adopted by the
convention the consequence must be
disastrous, and for the present fatal to
the Democratic cause.
But no sane man has ever doubted
that the chiefs of this great and victori
ous party, victorious we mean in the
State of New York, having taken their
places as delegates in the convention
and submitted their views to us for con
sideration would loyallv abide by its de
cision and do their utmost to elect
whatsoever candidate it might finally
determine to nominate.
All honor to the unflinching and
noble delegation ol New York Demo
crats at Chicago. All honor to that un
qualified Democrat, that faithful and
learless politician, that successful cham
pion, D. B. iiill, the only statesman of
the Democracy possessing the courage
and spirit to oiler himself as leader
against the claim to a third nomination
set up for a once defeated aspirant.
The Times (.Independent) : It cannot
be denied that Mr. Cleveland's nomina
tion must be attributed to tUe sincere
and power iuI sentimen of the masses of
h s party and not at all to the efforts
of political managers, The fact is that
the managers where they dared were
against his nomination. I'd to the
moment when the delegates from all
parts ol the union began to arrive in
Chicago there was not tbe faintest
semblance of a "Cleveland"
machine." That is to say there was
nothing like a preconcerted national
movement by skillful and interested
men to create or manifest sentiment in
lavorof his nomination. The nomina
tion was made, and made in a manner
that established beyond all doubt a de
gree of conlidence in Mr. Cleveland, of
eager and resolute desire (or his leader

Mankato, Minn., June 16 One of the
worst disasters that ever visited South
Minnesota occurred late yesterday after
noon. A funnel-shaped tornado swept
over the land and laid waste scores of
happy homes and sent forty or lit ty
souls into eternity. The extent of the
country devastated is greater than ever
before known in the history of the State.
Starting near Jackson on the Southern
Minnesota road, the cyclone swept east

lake and took a broad circle to the
soutli and passed south of Wells.
Two miles north of Sherburne it struck

like gas. Everything was filled with
haze. Impossible to get a list of the

than a hundred injured. They are
mostly in the country and distant from
medical aid. All along the Mil

some thirty miles from Sank City, had
ordered a gang of Italians to do a cer

and the foreman threatened. Then one
of the Italians picked up a crowbar and

Democratic party at the present time is
tbe sole efficient instrument for tax and

mit their interests to the Republican
party which has just made both reforms
our supreme necessity. The Democratic
party might aB well commit suicide as
shirk either duty, nor will it betray
the people's trust by allotting executive
power to any man whose views
are similar to the views of President
Harrison, and who is pledged like him
to block every approach to free bi-met-allic
coinage. It is a scandalous misuse
of executive power to employ the veto in
preventing remedial legislation from
being carefully planned and passed,
when so great a majority of the people's
representatives have been elected ex
pressly for that very work, to repeal
silver law and promote a return to free
bi-metallic coinage. I am indignant at
the rapacity of tbe gold monometalists so
reckless both of silence and public
opinion. Free bi-inetallic coinage is
the demand of the vast majority
of the American people. No wonder it
gave us parity of the silver dollar
and gold dollar for eighty years.
Free bi-metallic coinage is the
last word of n onetary science. To re
store it safely, wisely and finally is the
mission of the Democratic party."
Notes of IntereU Prom the Lmd or the
A Parisian newspaper recently drew
the attention to the coincident, tnat the
moment King Oscar entered France,
the house in Pau, a town near the
Pyrenees, where his ancestor, Berna
dotte, was born, was offered for sale. It
is an unpretentious little building of
one story, with three windows facing
Rue Frau. Above the entrance is a
marble tablet inserted with the follow
ing inscription: "Charles Jean Berna-
Hntto k'inur nf the ftwpflaa. WflH horn in
tUla 1 .,nA rnn.,.,.. OKth .... 17A3 " I
King Oscar visited the house on his re
cent journey to Biarritz, and remained
in it a few mom nts, when, no doubt,
emotional thoughts crowded upon him,
where stood the cradle of the founder of
his dynasty, who so unexpectedly be
came the king of Sweden and Norway,
and to whom he was himself indebted
for the exalted position he holds. But
the scion did not buy this memento of
his erandsire. which probably had been
the nope of the advertising owner. K'ng
Oscar left for the North, where in Ber
lin he w as met at the depot by Kaiser
William and brotherly embraced by the
mighty emperor, and the Bernadotte
house at Pan faded into the history of
the past before the brilliancy and glory
of the present.
The Daily Chronicle of London opines
that it is not impossible that the earnest
morality of the Scandinavian authors
may claim the attention of the world at
large. The voice of the inspired seers
have during centuries past proceeded
rom the south to the north. Europe
has alternately listened to the voice of
Greece and Italy, and later to those of
France. England and Germany, and
now it seems as if it had come the turn of
the Russians and the Norsemen to speak.
The muses of the north strike chords
that vibrate to the heart and call to life
thoughts which find a ready response in
our modern days. In Scandinavian and
Muscovite society evidently exist greater
naturalness than in the Parisian salons
and the London drawing rooms. This
obtains irresistibly among an artificial
society. Thechiel attraction consists in
that these literary men of the north
timultaneously while retaining their
bright originality, have understood how
to penetrate into the depths of the .nost
recent European philosophy, and depict
this in a most natural manner, un
reading Tolstoi, Turgenjef, Ibsen, Strind
berg and others, our interest is divided
between the proiounu mougnis, wnica
are stirring the whole cultured world,
and the fresh scenes, where the smoke
has not yet bagrimed and destroyed na

New York, June 22 The Press today
says : Vice President Walter Webb, of
the New York Central railway, now on
a vacation in Europe, has been sum
moned home by cable. He sails from
Liverpool today. This looks as if Mr.
Depew is to be the next secretary of
state and Mr. Webb the next president
o the New rork Central railway.
It is understood that the President
has not formally tendered to Mr. Depew
the portfolio of secretary of state, but
that he is ready to do so when Mr. De
pew signifies his absolute readiness to
accept. To be the successor of JameB
G. Blaine in any office is high enough
honor, but it is probable tbat no man
ever resigned so many offices to accept a
new one as Mr. Depew will if be enters
President Harrison's cabinet.
He is now either president or director
of seventeen of the largest companies in
the country and be will have to resign
from every one of them to accept the
office of secretary of state. Then he
will, for the first time in 30 years, devote
all his thoughts, energies and talents to
a single post of duty.

organization. The only improbable part
of the story is the lact that Mr. Depew
is not a member ot the committee, but
the precedent is quoted of Mr. Dudley's
connection with the committee as treas
urer, which are similar relations. It is
said that this, and not the secretaryship
ol state, formed the subject of discussion
