The Committee of Arrangements for the Bepnblican Convention on the Ground Beady for Work. The Work of Distributing the Seats—Gott- sip Concerning the Presiding Officer —The Convention Hall. The Abiding Places of the State Dele, nations During Their Stay in the Garden City. The Coming Convention. PRELIMINARY WORK. Chicago, May 27.—Hon. John C. New, of Indiana, and General Powell Clayton, oi Arkansas arriVed in Chicago yesterday to attend the meeting of the sub-committee oi the Republican National Committee. Col- onel John A. Martin, of Kansas, arrived last week. The three spent the day in looking over the applications for press tick- ets and considering the changes that will be necessary in the arrangements of. the Ex- position Building to accommodate the con- vention. These gentlemen will remain un-i til after the convention, and the arrange* rneuts are under their entire control. Those present did not form a quorum of the sub; committee, so that no definite action waa. taken. This morning the other members will ar- rive, when the hall will be visited and such changes as are necessary will be ordered. One of the subjects under discussion is the arrangement of the seats for the accommo- dation of the press. Whether they will be placed upon a platform, or allowed to remain upon the floor on a level with the delegates, will be decided to-day. It was said yester- day that it was probable that three hundred seats would be given to members of the press with tables and three hundred with- out tables. The delegates will have seats on the ground floor just in front of the cor- respondents, and the subscribers to the guaranty fund will sit beiiind them. Visit- ors will occupy the galleries and the raised seats behind the subscribers. One question that has given contesting delegates a good deal of . trouble is to And out how the tiofcets belonging to their dis- tricts will be distributed. General Clayton and Colonel Martin said yesterday that the National Committee would determine first what delegates have the prima-facie right to seats, and that the members of the commit- tee would be instructed to distribute the tickets among those who were found to be entitled to them. Very few delegates have arrived, yet the question as to the identity of the presiding officer excites general discussion. That will be the first real battle. The temporary oflicers will be selected by the National Committee, and will, in all probability, be made permanent, as they were four years ago. Just after A. M. Jones arrived home from Washington it was given out that G.. A. Grow, of Pennsylvania, was to have that honor, but since then a quiet boom has been worked up for Senator Cullom, of Illi- nois. This is denied by Logan's managers, but it is authoritatively stated that it is true, nevertheless. The first genuine boom was brought in yesterday afternoon from New York by Daviit Allerton, Secretary of the Re- publican Conference Committee. This committee was appointed by the Indepen- dent Republicans of New York, and is headed by General Francis C. Barlow. George William Curtis, Theodore Roosevelt, Andrew D. White and others are included in the organization. Their mission is to make a vigorous fight for Senator Edmunds, who has been selected as the personal em- bodiment of their views, and in his interest the attacks upon Blaine, Arthur and Logan will be un- eeasing. Secretary Allerton is armed with a large quantity of documents to prove that Blaine and Arthur can not oarry New York. Be claims that Edmunds has six- teen votes in New York, and that those from Massachusetts and other States will give him a following of ninety delegates, but admits that Arthur will obtain the votes of some of those claimed for Edmunds when they vote for second choice. The head- quarters of the Edmunds boomers will be opened at club-room A of the Grand Pacific Hotel in a day or so. Large delegations from Buffalo, New York and Boston are expected to arrive about Saturday to work for the Vermont Senator. One oC the peculiarities that has thus far been exhibited is the entire absence of any- thing like candidates' headquarters. Each State has its headquarters in the par- lors of the hotels, but for the first time iu twenty years there is no place that can be said to be run in the interest of any can- didate. Four years ago it was en- tirely different The friends of Blaine, Grant, Sherman Mid others all had special headquarters, into which the delegates were taken as fast as they arrived. Hotel pro- prietors say that they have not even been asked about candidates' rooms during the present year. . This largely arises from the fact that ail the delegations are divided, so that none of the leading States is looked up- on as the champion of either aspirant At the Grand Pacific Hotel no special rooms have been engaged' by leading Re- publicans. Enough rooms for the people who will come from each State have been reserved, bat who will ooeqpy them outside the delegates is not cknown. The New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Michi- gan, Indiana, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maine, .New Hampshire, Delaware, Louisi- ana, Colorado, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ore* gon, Idaho and Dakota delegations, and the National Republican Committee, will have rooms at tills hotel. Senator Mahone and General Dezendorf, the leaders of the rival delegates from Vir- ginia, as well as the other members of both delegations, have secured quarters at the Palmer House, at which hostelry will also be found Chauncey L Fffley and General J. B. Henderson, of Missouri, Hons. John A. Kasson, P. S. P. Pinchback, Hamilton Fish, B. K. Bruce, John C. New and Gen- eral Powell C. Clayton. The follow- ing delegations are also located there: California, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Kansas, Maryland. Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Vermont and Wyoming. The Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina, Texas and Iowa delegations will be at the Sherman House. The remaining delega- tions are scattered among the other leading hotels. That portion of the Exposition Building in which the convention is to be held is now being pot to use by the May Festival, it is a wide area of space covering 01,250 square feet The immense floor, 175x350 feet, is divided into two amphitheaters, seven aides and two galleries. The amphi- theater at the north end of the hall contains the stage, on which are arranged 1,300 seats. During the convention one thousand of these seats wdil be reserved fer invited gaests, and the remaining three hundred iHIl be occupied by the officers of the con- nation, members of the National Comm.it- tee and guests of honor.'; A space contain- ing throe hundred seats immediately in front of the stage will be reserved for the press, and the ground floor under the stage has been arranged for committee-rooms, tele^ graph offices and dressing-rooms. The seven large aisles on the ground ■ floor con- tain 1,080 seats for the delegates and alter- nates, and 2,795 seats for the general pub- lic. The latter will also have the use of the 1,925 seats in the amphitheater at the south end. of the hall, and of the 1,000 seats in the two gal- leries at the east and west sides of the hall, making 5,720 seats in all for those who are fortunate enough to secure tickets of admis- sion. No provision has been made for an orchestra during the convention, unless the musicians are placed in one of the galleries or at the extreme north or south end of the building. The means of entrance and exit are ad- mirably appointed. One large double door at the north end of the hall next to the en- gine house serves for the occupants of seats on the stage and members of the press, sep- arate corridors leading from the lob- by to the various departments. From the large lobby of the main en- trance, at the foot of Adams street, tbree large double -doors lead to the seats for the delegates and alternates and to the stairways for the galleries, and seven corridors, painted yellow, Blue, white, red, brown, green and orange, corresponding with the color of the tickets—lead to the aisles on the ground floor and to the seats on the amphitheater. Adding standing room for one thousand to the nine thousand seats the hall will comfortably hold ten thousand people. The management claims that the accous- ties of the hallare perfect, and any ordinary voice can be distinctly heard in any part of ttie halt Two large sounding-boards, one on each of the ends of, the hall, have been placed in position. The building is amply lighted by windows and sky-llghts, and gn will be used for the evening sessions. Tire May Festival Asso- ciation and the managing committees of the two conventions share equally In the cost of construction, which is $15,000. It is claimed that the hall can be emptied in ten minutes if ordinarySbare is used by the public. • i - San Francisco, CaL, May 27.—The California delegation to the National Re- publican Convention left on a special train yesterday afternoon for Chicago. The del- egates and their families number thirty-five. The Nevada delegation wiH be taken aboard en, route. Two hundred excursionists accompany the delegations. Receptions will be held at points along the line east of the Missouri River aad at Chicago, where they are timed to arrive at eight o'clock Saturday morning. The California and Ne- vada delegations will make their head- quarters at the Palmer House. The sleep- ing-coach are handsomely decorated and bear the lbgend "Blaine and Victory." ANOTHER CLERK GOES WRONG. A Trusted Employe of the Wabash Road, at St. Lionis, Arrested at His Dying Wife's Bedside on a Charge of Swindling. St. Louis, Mo., May 27.—John D. St Maur, alias Morrow, chief clerk in the so- licitor's office of the Wabash Railway, was arrested in this city yesterday afternoon on the charge of swindling a number of business men out of $40,000. His scheme was to make out vouchers purporting to be signed by T. O'Leary, Cashier of the Wabash office, for fictitious claims. These bogus vouchers were made to mature at different periods aud were negotiated'to banks and business men ustmlly at ten per cent discount. The scheme has been worked for nearly a year, but none of the forged vouchers came into the hands of the company until yesterday. St "Maur was arrested at the bedside of his dying wife at 1,443 St Ange avenue, and broke completely down when confronted by evidences of ills guiJt When asked by the Chief of Police what he did with the money lie would not auswer, but said that lie would deny nothing. The rumor is that lie lost most of the money in speculation, and that he was just contemplating flight when arrested. THE GREENBACKERS. Delegates Rapidly Arriving in Indianapo- lis for the Convention—Butler Almost Certain of the Nomination — Maryland Wants Jesse Harper. Indianapolis, tod., May27.—Delegates to the Greenback Convention are radidly arriving. The general opinion appears to be that General Butler will be nominated without opposition. It is said that General Weaver, of Iowa, would not accept; and, although George O. Jones, of New York, has several adherents who oppose Butler on account of what they term his uncertainty on financial questions! there is little doubt the latter will be chosen without a struggle. Baltimore, Md., May 27.—A telegram was sent last night by William EL Parsons, Chairman of the delegation to the National greenback Convention, which meets to- .niorrow in Indianapolis, to Colonel Leo jcrandail, secretary of that body, to cast six- 'teen votes from Maryland for Jesse Harper, of Illinois, as the Greenback candidate for President By the Pistol Rente. Buffalo, N. Y., May 27.—George Low- ell, a graduate of Harvard, and for a year past teacher ef the Buffalo Latin and Gram- School, committed suicide at eight o'clock a. m. yesterday, with a pistol. Meianoholia caused the deed. The young man was a son of the eminent Judge LewelL of Bor.tun. Geo. H.

Current Topics al the Capital. the adjournment question. £ Washington, May 27.—Republican Sen- ators have received intimations from Demo- cratic leaders in the House that they would like to come to an agreement for the ad- journment of Congress before the 1st ol July. One of the obstacles to adjourn- ment is the disagreement of the two bodies in the Post-office and Naval Appro- priation bills. Conference Committees are at -work upon these bills, and it is hoped that the difference may be adjusted. The Senate struck out of the Post-office bill the limitation upon the pay of land-grani railroads for carrying the mails. Under; the present law these roads are allowed eighty per cent of the rate paid to other reads. The House proposed to eut it down to fifty per cent It is expected that the House will yield and allow the present rate of compensation to con- tinue.c With respect to the Naval bill the chief difference between the Senate and House is the appropriation of $5,000,- 000 for the construction of new cruisers and completion of the monitors. The Democrats are earnestly opposed to grant- ing this appropriation before the Presi- dential election, having a vague idea that somehow, Secretary Chandler 'may find a way to use the money to advance the Re- publican oattse. It is understood that the Senate confreres are now inclined to re- cede from this amendent rather than risk the prolonging of the session of Congress on account of it or the entire failure of the Naval Appropriation bill presidential electors.

The Department of State having been in- formed that the Chinese Government pro- posed to enter a silk loom in operation as an exhibit at the New Orleans Exposition, the question arose whether the Chinese re- striction act did not prohibit the landing of operators on the ground that they were la- borers. The question was referred to the Treasury Department, and Secretary Folger has informed the Secretary ofl State that Chinese operators would be admitted with- out molestation, with the understanding that they will not remain in the country longer than necessary for the display of the exhibit LIMITING PRESIDENTIAL TERMS OF OF- FICE. ; The Senate Judiciary Committee has agreed to substitute for Mr. Jackson's reso- j lution relating to the terms of President j and Vice-President Mr. Ingalls' substitute, I which makes the terms of President and Vice-President six years, prohibits the President to seek re-election, and makes the Vice-President ineligible to election as Pres ident if he shall have exercised the office of President in case of a vacancy. HOUSE; Mr. Hewitt introduced a bill In the Houae yesterday punishing by fine and imprison ment any National Bank olBcial who should obtain from the bank with which he waa connected any loan for his own benefit or for the benefit of any company of wbich he mighf be a member, by which loss should occur to the bank. After several ^nor Senate "bills had been acted on the contested election case of Wallace vs. McKinley, from Ohio, was taken up. The majority report unseats Mr. McKinley, wnlle the minority resolution confirms the sitting member. Messrs. Turner (6a. > and Adams (N. Y.) spoke in favor of the contest- ant, and Messrs. Hepburn, Robertson (Ky.) and E. B. Taylor (O.j, for the contestee. Mr. Robinson, who was the only Democrat who signed the minority report, appealed to his Bide of the House not to unseat Mr. McKin- ley, as to do so it woald have to vote con- trary to law and the facts of the case. Pend- ing further debate, tbe matter went over and the House adjourned. SUN ATE. KThe Senate yesterday concurred in the House amendment extending the duration of the Court of Alabama Claims to December 31, 1885, instead of 1884, as in the Senate bill. Af- ter several measures had been reported and placed on the calendar tbe Utah bill was taken up. Mr. Hoar spoke In Its favor, but soon yielded to allow the taking up of the Mexican Pension bill, whioh was discussed at great length without action. Mr. Brown then of- fered an amendment to the Utah bill making adultery the ouiy ground for absolute divorce 1b the Dlsirkit of Columbia and the Territo- ries, but avowing divorces from bed and board in proper oases at common law. Tbe Senate then adjourned. VOIi. 12. NO. 125. Ask vour Husband, Ask vour Wife. Ask your Brother. Ask vour Sister Ask vour Neighbor. and thev will tell vou that W.
