The contest in th? committee on resolu tions is expected to be sharp, hut not pro tracted. As ir now appears th. tc will be little or no difficulty in agreeing upon any of the planks of the platform except that relating to fly-financial pdhy of the party. Two problems pre-v.nt themselves. The lirst of these is how imi"h to do for silver, the second how little to do for gold. Around these questions range th specu lation and the interest of all. One Important question remaining un settle! is that of the selection of a vice presidential candidate. Next to the llnen cinl plank the filling of this j,l.:ce 0:1 the ticket has engaged the greatest share of speculative attention the past v;eek. but apparently opinion h ts not been so well crystal i.c-d on this sudje-r as upon others.

Senator (Quay's attitude in the conven tion continues to be the subject of no small decree of speculation. When asked whether his name would be presented is a presidential candidate the senator re plied that the matter had not been defi jutcly determined, but that it would prob ably depend, upon the wishes of the friends of othercandidateuh an McKinley. Mr. Quay is in a somewhat embarrass ing position. He has for some time real ized th- certainty in his opinion of Mc Kinl ey's nomination. and has advi-ed that the o;her candidates acquiesce in the in evitable and retire from the contest. Pre vious to arriving at this ronelus; n he had entered into an arra liuvment wi!h the friends of nt'ier candidates to remahi in the race. Th 'v ale now di-po-ed to held him to hi- agreement.

The Arrival of Speaker Heed's 1'ooin. St. Louis. June 15. When the Kepub liean national convention is called to or der tomorrow it will be found that the preliminaries have been looked after with exceptional thoroughness. There will be no obstacles in the way of immediately be ginning the work for which the conven tion has been called, and present indica tions are that the meeting will not be of long duration. Selection has been made of the tempo rary chairman and other oilicers of the temporary organization, and a program practically agreed upon for the permanent organization, with Senator Thurston, of tern? THOMAS n. CARTER. (Chairman National republican (Committee.) Nebraska, for presiding ofliccr ()f the con vention. The selection of C. W. Fair banks, of Indianapolis, for temporary chairman gives general satisfaction. When we add to these accomplishments the fact that the presidential nominee has prac tically been named it must le conceded that the convention has apparently a. com paratively easy and brief task before it. Obstacles may be encountered, but as yet comparatively few of them are discern- rea i in the r:d' call. he ' ono-f and th, hi Pennsylvania vote to the Ohio cainiidar.: 'i he friends of other candidates are still quite determined to continue their candi dates in the race to the finish, elr. Piatt, as the representative of Governor Morton, is especially persistent in urging this course. His reason for this is his desire to secure a roll call for the purpose of put ting the New York delegation on record, lie is. however, decided to abide by the decision of the national committee in dis posing of the Xew York contests, and not to make any factious opposition. Senator Dubois of Idaho and Represent ative Hurt man of Montana joined Senator Teller of Colorado here last nizht. There is no longer any doubt of the purpose of the silver men to bolt the action of the convention unless they can have their way about the financial plankJThe program they ha.ve arranged will probably furnish the mast ensational incident of jhc con vention. They intend, as a preliminary, to marshal all the strength they can in the committee on resolutions for silver. They know they will fail, but instead of their attempting to secure a compromise it will lie their plan to so throw their strength in the committee as to force, if possible, thu adoption of a straightout gold pi ink. As one of them said today : "If the Republi can convention cannot be right we will force it to be honest. Better a gold declar ation for all concerned than an equivocal plank that wears gold."' The light will be carried to the lioor of the convention uiuler the leadership of Senator Teller, who, hie friends, say. will make a speech that will be the effort of his life. It will be his val edictory to the Republican party. The silver men expect to carry at least live stater, out of the convention with them Colorado, Idaho, Utah, Nevada and Mon tana and they are very hopeful that the Democratic convention at Chicago will nominate the man who leads tin bolt here. Yesterday the Reed boom was given the first impetus that it has had during the ante-convention days. The arrival of the Maine and Massachusetts delegations, with glittering badges and waving ban ners, gave the first real appearance of Ree.l's candidacy that has been seen. Sen ator Iidge. of Massachusetts, who is to place Ih'ed in nomination, has become the recognized leader of the li.-e.l forces, and since his arrival has been trying to gather the scattere 1 R vd forces and retrieve the losses that have occurred in the past few days. Chairman Littleileid. of the Maine delegation, who will probably second Reed's nomination, has heal the Reed head quarters formally opened, and last nb.rht the delegation had a meeting in which steps were taken towards pressing the candidacy of Reed with all possible spirit. The Reed men are jubilant over the re sults of a colored mass meeting at which representatives from Florida. Alabama and South Carolina declared for Mr. Reed, and practically withdrew their names from the McKinley column. It will interest the states that ha.ve con tests before the national committee, as it will also interest those 'who hope for a short convention, to know that those in ' control of the convention have formulated , 1 i.t " . ,,-;n apian wnereuy uie uimiurous (.omo.--i m . not be opened attain bv the convention or I by trie committee on "contested seats. It had been the general opinion up to late yesterday afternoon that the wearisome task just finished by the national commit tee will be repeated by the committee on credentials of the convention, and that a delay of at least a couple days would en sue when the defeated contestants or can testees applied for a reopening of their cases. Kit her the McKinley managers are fear ful of delay or else they believe it is a waste (.f time and energy to reopen those cases, for the edict went forth that the convention would by resolution either f trnially accept as final the report of the national committee on all contests decided by them, or would instruct the committee on credentials to so report. This menus that only such contests as the Tex a-; and Delaware ones shall be referred to the con vention, because such aetion would make tiv temporary i'--II call a permanent one with the except ion of the two states named. That the Xew York delegation and Mr. Piatt coincide with this course is one of the peculiarities of anti-convention hap penings. Theactimrof the national committee on the New York contests was disastrous to Mr. Platr's friends. The districts in which he was'inte:i-ely interested were those in the city of New York. He never felt alarmed about the contests in Brook lyn, and it appeared that the men who in tended to contest the seats of the Piatt men abandoned them, and the Piatt dele gates were seated unanimously. The greatest fight made was that in the Twelfth New York district, where Corne lius N. Bliss and S. V. R. Cruger, anti Platt. were contesting with the Piatt del egates, Howard Carroll and Thurlow "Weed Barnes. This was the strongest case the Piatt men presented, and yet his delegates secured but a half vote each, shared with the anti-Platt men. In the other districts the anti-Platt men were seated with' full delegate powers. An analysis of the work of the national committee in regard to the ItiS contests which were originally filed with it shows that i'.YS cases ere acted on. some of the original number Ji-.ving been abandoned. whPe several, nota-iily those of Delaware and a portion of the Texas delegation, were referred to the convention. Of the claimants rejected by thecom mite'e were avowed McKinley men. The i:rpres:.i.!i which prevailed that the co;n:nitre was deciding a large niajoi'ity of the ca-e ; in favor of McKinley doubt less gre.v on: f the fact that in nearly all the states where there were a large num ber of ci iitets both conte-tants and c.)n tesr s we'1", according to their own state mem s. McKinley men. 'r. Plan, asked, for his personal opinion in 1 he matter, of the Twdftri district, saiu: "Messrs. Bliss an;! Cruger uid not have a leg t stand upon, and the national com mittee knows it. It is surprising that a man of Mr. Bliss1 fine sense of honor would ac -ept a place in the convention under su. h circumstances. However, we got more than we were told to expect.1' Mr. Piatt stated explicitly that the Xew York delegation had no intention of bolt ing the convention. "We shall," he said, "leave the hall only when the convention had adjourned." The other Piatt leaders expressed similar views. There was a conference last night at the Southern hotel, at which the following states were represented: Maine, New Hampshire. Yerm nt, Connecticut, Mas sachusetts, Rhode Island. New York, Pennsylvania. Tennessee, Illinois, Minne sota and Wisconsin. The following was agree ! upon as satisfactory, and will be presented to the commit tee on resolutions: "We favor th maintenance of the ex isting gold standard, and are opposed to the free coinage of silver except by inter national agreement for bimetallism with the leading commercial nations of the world." The men in the conference were those who will probably represent their states on the committee on resolutions. Delegate Yerkes. of Kentucky, received a telegram from Governor Bradley last evening announcing that his name would not be presented to the convention. This has been in the governor's mind for some time. Governor Bradley arrived here this morning to engage actively in the contest in behalf of a platform declaration for a gold standard. Joseph Mauley was severely criticized at a meeting of the Maine delegation yester day. Sonic of the delegates even went so far as to intimate that it would be for the good of the cause of Republicanism in Maine to select a new committeman. This was brought .about by the action of Mr. Manh-y in announcing, upon his arrival in St. bonis, that Mr. MeKinley could not be defeated for the nomination. Cornelius N. Bliss said this morning: "I am not and have at no time been a can didate for llic presidential nomination. I am a wan: tint kind friends have men tioned my name in that connection during the l.tst few days. There has betm more, or less newspaper talk of me, but I really am not a candidate." W. II itelllv. of Kentucky, who has been selected as the lirst secretary in the temporary organization, said today that a nomination could not be reached before Thursday, and that the convention would last through Friday. owing to the fact that there will be no night sessions on Tues day, Wednesday or Thursday, the hall te ing given up for other purposes on those nights. , Byron used a great deal of hair-dres-sing-, but was very particular to have only the best to be found in the market.

Evidently an Attempt n tb Part of Tn snrgcut vmp:thU'rs t-.t Cut Olf the City's Water Sn;ply Preparing for an Aq;res;ve Campaign. IiAVAXA.Juu"!.). This city was startled p.nd alarmed Saturday night at o'clock by the noi--e of two successive explosions, which shook the ground for a long dis tance and was heard for several miles. Consternation prevailed for a time, as it was feai-e 1 that this was a prelude to an attack or to a series of similar explosions. Excited thrones rushed to the streets. whdeaa ;riy proceeded in the di rection from which the detonations hail been heard. It was soon found that the stone bridges of Cristina and Concha and the auuecluct of Fernando Septo were the points that had suffered from the dynamite. The bridges were partially destroyed, and the pipes on the aqueduct, upon which the city is dependent for its water supply, were much damaged. It cannot yet be stated how extensive is the damage done, or how long it will require to remedy it. The windows in many houses in the city were shattered by the reverberation of the explosion, and some market struc tures were also badly damaged. There is no doubt felt that the dynamite which caused this wreck was placed by agents of the insurgents. It has been their determination, announced some time ago, to cut off the water supply of Havana, and so serve to make it as nearly uninhabita ble as possible. The greatest apprehension is felt on ac count of the secrecy and eiTe' tiveness with which the insurgents have been able to carry out the outrages. The night was spoilt in fear and dread of immediate dan ger. These fears were largely dispersed by the return of daylight. liat much anxiety is fel: as to the future. It is be lieved that the insurgents are bent upon investing Havana by cutting off as much as possiide the supply of necessities, if not by actualiv bederiur it. All fruits and vc: and fresh meais are unpreeeden.Vuiy high priced uv" 1i1ilicr.lt to obtain, and milk is of the poorest, such as is bru'i' : :u h'-nig "ve i adulterated before it is doled out. Much fever and m;dipox has broken out h. .re, and in the unwholesome condition of af fairs threatens to become epidemic. Many are suffering from measles, and there is much intestinal trouble among the inhab itants, owing to poor and insuhicient food. The failure of the water supply under these conditions is a dire calamity. It is the announced intention of tho au thorities to continue the campaign against the insurgents in spite of the unhealthy rainy season having set in, and additional troops are in the lield in l'inar del Hio, fwith the purpose of running down and surrounding Antonio Ma ceo. It is evident, however, that the insur gents themselves are prewiring to enter upon a more aggressive plan of action, and the gathering of insurgent forces in Puerto Principe and Santa Clara is le lieved to be a prelude toanother raid west ward in force by Maximo ("Jomez. Tho presence of this combined insurgent force in the neighborhood, and even in the out skirts of Havana in the next month, is ;t condition that must probably be counted, on.
