Hints ot a possible b'iZ political scandal
in the near tuture h ive lx?en dropiie.l this
week by lending s-.lvi r tin n No naiu-s
used and few particular. are uiven.
but it is whispered around Washington
that some of those who ure -homing the
loudist lor silver in public are plotting iu
private to prevent the nomination by the
Chicago coDVcntioii of a ticket upon
I which all of the silver voters wouUl be
wdling to unite, and it is further uhis
pered that some sensational denounce
moots may follow the Chicago convention,
if these plotters sncceid in getting a ticket
put up that the Populists aud silver
Republicans will refuse to support.
It did not st e:u possible two months
ago t hat the Chicago convention could
afr.ict the attention it is uow rtCciving.
It will really decide whether the Presi

or whether there shall be a tiiaugular

j ()f the gold ticket. It doisn't seem
make the slightest difference to those who
are fighting to prevent the convention
adopting a tree silver platform and nomi
nating a sdlver ticket that nearly two
thirds of the dclcgau s
to the con ventem
have already declar.d themselves to be
silver men. This isn't complimentary to
anybody concerned, but it is strictly true.
President Cleveland is making a per
sonal attempt to get the southern delegates
to the National Convention to abandon
the idea of voting tor a free coinage plat
form. He is sctiding out large numbers
of two personal letters. Oue of them is
addressed to southern men of prominence
whom he has met, appealing to them to
give their inlluence towards preventing
the defeat of the administration by its
own party conention. This letter gens
in strong on southern sentiment and grat
itude, and recites what the wiiter has done
lor the south during hs two terms,
mentioning among other tavors bestowed
on the south live Cab n. t positi"iis, two
Associate Justices ot the l S. Supreme
Court, and two Am jussadors. The oth
er letter is lieing sent to business men in
New York and other eastern cities w ho
have intimate financial relations with the

Seem to be well nigh assured.
This is a good time to recall seiine
political facts which show that it has
been hard fighting and the gaining of
comparatively tew votes which have set
t led each of our last three presidential
elections, not to mention the contest of
176 when it was one electoral vote and
that in such a grave dispute that it could
only be settled by a tribunal made for the
occasion the nnmoruble electoral com
mission. Iu 188-i Mr. Cleveland won by
a msigiu ol about 1200 votes in the State
of New York, and in 1888 he lost to Mr.
Harrison by Ids inability to carry the
) samp State The contest oflMO'J is fre-
quenily called a Democratic tidal wave,
because Cleveland got 277 electoral votes,
while Harrison only got 145, and Weaver
22, bat?tt. glance at the popular vote cast
at thatvfelcetiein will show that it wasu't
muclVof a tidal wave, but was in reality
only the change ef comparatively few
votes, probably largely caused by men
who stayed at home anil didn't vote at all.
The total popular vote was 12,110,030.
Cleveland got 5,550 018, Harrison f,17ti,
108, Weaver 1,041,028, and Bidwell,
204,133. Cleveland's vote was only 1:3-,
085 greater than it was four years before
w hen he was defeated, while Harrison's
vote was 204,108 less thau it was iu 1892
when he was elected. Thafe shows what
a small change is required, if they are in
close states, to make what the people call
a tidal wave winning for either side.
The "Headquarters ot the A. P. A. have
been moved to Washington and are now
opeu for tusiness. Among other innova
tions is the publication of a weekly A. P.
A. orgau. Notwithstanding all the recent
talk about the part this Association! was
to play in the coming Presidential Cam
paign, supreme President Echols, who
certainly ought to know, assured your
correspondent in the most positive terms
that the A. P. A. as an organization
would take no part whatever iu the Nat
ional campaign, and that its members are
free to use their own judgment as to the
best ticket to vote. Mr. Echols is going
on a lceture tour, as lar as Alaska, in a
shot t time.
An incident cccured here several days
ago which may play almost as importaut
a part in this year's political campaign as
Whitelaw Reid's old quarrels with the
Typographical Union did iu the cam
paign of four years ago. One of the local
street railway companies discharged a
number of their oldest and most efficient
employes lor no other reason than that
they were officers in a Union ot Street
Railway Employes which affiliates with
the Kuighis of Labor. One of the officers
of this company who was instrumental
iu bringing about these discharges is
A. A. Wilson, U. S. Marsha of the Dis
trict of Columbia, a prominent Democrat
and a chum of President Cleveland. The
National officers of tlie Knights of Labor
have taken up the discharged men's fight
and have appealed to Representative Bab
rock6i Wis., who is Chairman of the
House Committee of the District of Col
umbia, and also of the Republican Con
gre.sional Campaign Committee, to help
them secure justice for the discharged
meo. They say that Mr. Babcock's in
rlueuce withth s company ought to enable
him to do this easily as the company is
now asking for lv: pasa

of his House committee. Mr. Bnbceick "They will show conclusively that the

Whitney s plans were considered,
but there was no inclination to yield any
thing. Havana to be Dynamited.
Nkw Y..KK A Journal spe-cial from
Havana via Key West says:
The revolutionists have formally served
notice on the people at Havana that plans
have be-eu completed and will be carried
into execution this summer to w ipe out
every vestige of the city by means of dy
namite, if it be necessary to go to that 1
extreme to drive the Spanish fr.im the
island. Copies of the circular coi.taiuing this
announe mcut have been left at the houses
of all well to-do people of tlie city. It is
entitled, "Dynamite circular Cuban fami
lies," ami reads as follows:
'Families warned to lease.
".The summer campaign is te be sup
ported in the large towus by Ihe Revolu
tionists resiiiiug luerein, ami to inw enei
terrible means must be resorted, to the
employment of lunmite.
"The inhabitants of Havana arc fully
aware that tlie announcement of this plan
is no vain threat, as the plans agreed
upon for the explosion have already
begun to materialize. The eeliticen doomed
to be blown up have- been selected, aud
one after the other shall fall.
The revolutionist party jannot retrace
its steps, ane! if it is necessary to totally
destroy the city of Havana lor the pur
pose of expelling Spain, it shall be de
stroyed. Therelore, emr compatriotsl
families must become fuily aw are as to
the importance ol hurriedly abaneleming
the country, and those who caunot, vc
charge to be ever on the alert, and employ
the constant and indefatigable vigilance
proper to those who find themselves next
to a mine loaded to the utmost."
One needs only to recall the recent
dynamite explosion that nearly comph te
ly wrecked the aqueduct anel menaced
Havana's wafer supply to heed the warn
ing contained in the circular that it is no
"vain threit." It has occasioned uneasi
ness that bids fair to develop into a panic
on the next demonstration of the natu e
that the circular describes.
