Thoro wore no new developments yesterday In the combat now going on between the various Kast eni railroads. The reductions announced yester day have been followed by all the roads leading to tbe Fast, but no new move was made by the con testing parlies. All the roads had tbeir hands full In getting up posters announcing tho reduc tion, ami stating that each particular road was tho shortest and best, ami should therefore boqmtron- Dnl by the traveling public. Tho DaUhnore .6 Ohio Ituilroad adopted the same rales ns tho other muls yesterday morning, mid In connection with the Fort Wayne and Pennsylvania Kailroml, also reduced tho rale from Chicago to Dnltlrnoro to 511.10. which Is JIO cent* Icin'than the reduced rate to Philadelphia. Tickets at the reduced rates are limited to throe days, and must be used within that time or else the old rate will ho exacted. It Is the general opinion in railroad cir cles that n stiil further reduction will take place In a few days—probably gIE from Chicago to New \ ork. Tho light will now bo exclusively on passenger rates. No further niovo In freight rales wlll at present he made, an those have already reached bottom figures, and yet at these low rates even shipments arc made very slowly, liven If there was no war among the mads, it Is doubt* ful whether higher rated could he charged during tho navigation season. Ilencu the light in freight rates had no effort nn any of the roads, ami it was thought that something more decisive would be accomplished by u light on the passenger tralilc. Nothing but tho utmost desperation of the New York trunk linos could have brought about a reduc tion of passenger rate* ut this time. All tho road*' leading to New York and Philadelphia expected lo reap a rich harvest from the Centennial tralilc. In spite of tho utmost clamor of tho public, they re* fused to mnko a further concession on account of the Centennial except a reduction of *J3 per cent on round.trlii tickets. What public opinion could not get out of the railroad managers tuny conceded to rivalry mid Jealousy nmong themselves. To throw away the large profits which It was expected to make from thu Centennial tralilc, shows the deter mination of the rival line* to force each other to the wall, cost wbut It may.

The Adminis tration of Van Huron had been unpopular; tho people were crying for reform, and when tho summer of 1510 camo there was a general de mand from nil ranks and conditions, outside Congressional circles that (Jen. Harrison should again become a candidate. Within a few brief imimlis after Van Huron became President. Hie gen eral crash of IHU7 startled the country,and whether justly or unjustly, the groat itmt of the people held the Democratic party and his Administration responsible for tho disordered condition of the finances of the nation. The politicians, however, opposed (lea. Harrison’s second nomination a* to day they oppose tho nomination of Col. Hrlstow. The people wore clamorous, knew their right*, and dared malntidn them. Hen. Harrison was not onlv nominated, hut triumphantly elected, receiving gut electoral vote* to Van Horen's DO. During the past sixty days I have traveled exten sively throughout tlie Slates of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, and I confess Unit 1 never wa* so mueli surprised in my life us 1 luivo been at tho exhibi- tion of col. musiow’s I’oi'L’L.vnmr among the masses op Tin: people. And yet, with here and there an honorable ex ception, the politicians are against Hrlstow. Last week I was in attendance upon the liepubllcnii Statu Convention of Illinois at Springfield, ami 1 had opportunities for seeing how close the Hue was drawn between the people and the politicians. In mixing among the crowds of delegates at the Le land Hotel on Tuesday evening before the Conven tion met,—and while tho political wire-workers were closeted In their rooms coneoctingtbc mes* of balderdash which they smuggled through ns u plat form,—on every hand 1 heard nothing but warm words of praise for the brilliant Secretary of (lie Treasury, ami admiration for the plucky manner in which be hud fought tho Whinky-lthigs, and corruption iuslde the Kcpubllcan party. 1 could give you the names of scores of country delegates who made no secret of their preference for Col. Drintow, and Would have so voted in open Conven tion had they been offered mi opportunity. Hut the Hbilne men controlled all tho machine-work, mul the honest, spontaneous Bristow element was smothered out of sight. To properly understand how it was done, let me toll you, WHAT I HAW AND HEARD. “Col.” Frank Palmer, Clmrles L. Wilson, Shelby M.

These men circulated around among the rural delegates, talked Hrlstow to a Hrislow man, Morton to a .Morton man, and Hlalnu to a lUiilne man, saying to each ono that it would be bad policy to Instruct fur any one candidate. Said clmrliu Furwull: “Illinois ha* had the President for sixteen years, and we can afford to lie magnanimous and Just." And yet, at an early hour on Wednesday morning, hv the operation of machine work, the several Congres sional caucuses weru packed, the Hrlstow element Ignored, Htulno men selected, ami then crowded through thu general Convention. There never was an opportunity presented for a leal of strength be fore tho Convention as botweou Hrlstow and Hlnim*.

TENNESSEE, PROGNOSTICATIONS OP TO-DAY’S CONVENTION. fyierinl Vnrre*iimdrnce of The Tribune. Nashville, Tenth, May 2S.—Tins State Demo cratic Convention will meet here next Wednes day and elect delegates to the St. Louis Conven tion. Tomlaynugollwaa dinieult to tell whether Tllden or Hendricks was tho favorite candidate of the Democracy for the Presidency. Within that lime Tllden hiui gradually grown weaker mid Ilemlrleka uueemlcd In the scale of popular favor. It Is now more than probable that the Convention will luntruct Its delegatus to vole for Hendricks nt St. Louis. A strong feeling exists hero In favor of tho unconditional repeal of the ItcsumpUon act, and a resolution will be adopted to that effect. It is not altogether Improbable that a resolution will bo adopted fa voring the repeal of so much of tho National-Hank system «« make.* It« monopoly, mid prohl bit* the e«lahli*hment of free banks. This done, thu next Legislature will authorize tho re-cstablishmont of fret* bank* under certain restrictions.

This, it is asserted, accounts in part fur thu stagnation of business In this State. A* Headricks' position assimilates more to this condition of affair*, he comes nearer filling tho bill required by the Demucrary than Tllden, who I* regarded ns an uncompromising hard-money man. Tildon’s resort to the advertising agencies to manufacture public sentiment In Ids favor has done him more harm than good. Hu has fulled to subsidize Urn Tcnnesseu press to such nn extent a* to make It an even-going thing with him. Anything that now goes into n Tennessee paper In favor of Tllden Is supposed to Imvu been paid for, and whatever thu sentiment it contained Is lust on the public fur that reason. The name of llayarcl freqnonlly comes up to the surface, hut nut very prominently. Unusual lulerent lit now manifested In the pelec- Hon of delegates to at. Louis, and it would not astonish anybody Phould the proceeding prove somewhat Inharmonious, The Tlldcn men In the Convuulion will make up in nolso what they lack in votes, and, when they (Iml that they cannot have the delegates instructed to vote for him, will make determined opposition to any Instruction for Hendricks. This, of course, will raise a lively lit tle breeze for the entertainment of the spectators in the galleries In tho hall of the House of itepre sentaUvcß, which Id expected to bo crowded to overflowing. The Hepubllcan Convention set the example, on the question of the payment of (he mate debt, when they declared In favor of meeting, prompt ly, all the State’s liabilities. The Demo crats daro not lake uny other stand, lest they be annihilated in the coming can vass, A large class of people in Tennessee favor repudiation, and It Is now a question ns to whether the Democracy will take such u non-commllal stand ns to draw* this brood under her wings, the Hepubllcnns having taken a bold course and given them no chance to become barnacles upon (heir progressive ship. Any but a straightforward course would have damaged the Ktipubllcaii party. Us leaders, therefore, made up their minds to lake an honest shuto. Should tho Democrats attempt to evade thu responsibility, and not, In most u mills tukablo terms, ueclure themselves In favor of com mon honesty, In mcetingtho llubllltlcsof the State.

Saginaw, Mich., May liO.—lt Ima comotobo pretty generally understood In Michigan that military reunions are placet! at which politicians gather to “tlx things." It was during tlm great gathering In Detroit, ot the dedication of the State Soldiers' Monument, that the Ineuba tion was Inaugurated by a few soreheads which resulted In hutching out what strength there was In this Statu to the Liberal liupuhlicuu movement in lbW. A great many eggs were placed under the hen then which fulled to hutch Into chlckemi, und this seems to he thu only fault with incubations which aru started under such circumstances. Thu recent reunion In Detroit was no excep tion to the general rule. The usual gathering of politicians was there, thu usual setting was Inaugurated, ami the purpose of this Jotter Is to In form the reudersjof Tub Tniuenß the exact nature of the outcome which la expected. The office of Governor of the Peninsular State is not u lucrative one, and yet wo Wolverines have never found any lack of eminent gentlemen who are willing to accept thu honors of tho office, and the cmoiumcnts~sl,ooo a year. This year wo have a Governor to elect, and there has been no lack of candidates. Wo huvS bad, as usual, con siderable newspaper nomination, and aundry aun tlemeii, having Influence with their local ncwMiu tiers, have succeeded in bulng nominated. Some have had their nomination seconded, bat over all of these gentlemen, except one, the Kupuhlican press of the Huie have shown a derided disinclina tion to enthuse. The Saginaw Valley has hud two candidates—Mr. I). 11. Jerome, of Saginaw, und Mr. Janies Shearer, of llaycfty. Hut tue echoes of these nominations have thundered In no other quarter. Parkis was very willin', but Peegoly,— well she seemed to be disgustingly indulerunl. ihnvn in thu southern part of thu State, ux-Stnte Treasurer Grosvenor was nominated, but the people, neither there nor elsewhere, seemed to conclude that the hour and thu nmn hud cornu, und that Mr. tiriMvmor was that uiun. Theru were other geullutmm In the sumo position, but it is no nuu going through thu lUt. The cases of all were Idi-nlkul. Tlic onu exception lu all this was Mr. C’roswcl), of Luuawcv. lu regard to him, there seemed to bo ft singular unanimity of expression.

Howard is a memory, 11 fragrant mm to many Hopuldiean nostrils, It is true, bull do not think It good policy for »ho people of Michi gan to elect a man Governor who acknowledges his physical Incapacity to do tho work which would devolve upon him. That the movement In favor nf nominating him Is not rooted j» any regard for himself, mute know better than Air. Howard. Tho prime movers In it are not men who havu been his friends In the past. They now propose to trafllc on his reputation lo serve Ibelronn Jntere.sls, and If Mr. Howard has half Hie shrewdness I give him credit for ho will see this. Before mo ns I write Is n list of tho men who were present ill this Detroit conference. Jt }/» not a lung otic, but I will not trespass on your space by vim? it now.

CINCINNATI, I’Rni'AlllNO FOU TUB CONVENTION—CAPACITY OP TUB CINCINNATI HOTELS—ALL AUOVB 8,000 VISITORS MUST (JO TO PRIVATE HOUSES— THE ARRANHBMBNTS IN TIIH HALL WHBUB TUB CONVENTION WILL lIR HELD. Cincinnati Cone/jinmlrnce A>ir York Timet. Having given fairly and fully tho political condition of tills great State, It remains to say what this great city has done, mul Is going to do, to Insure tho comfort of the thousands who will cram It to mtllocullon next month, First of all, as a matter of most Immediate personal Interest to these thousands, must he mentioned the capacity of the city for furnishing tho mul titude with food anil lodging. As to food, there Is no limit, of course, for, In addition to tho hotels, which can alone supply every one, there arc numerous restaurants, where excellent meals can ho obtained at all hours ami at moderate rates. This Is enough to say on this point, for it is a hare statement of on undoubted fact, and Is sufficient to show that nobody need go hungry who has the money to purchase a meal, Uut how about tho lodg ing! On this point it must he admitted that if everybody comes hero who threatens to come, Homo among tho later comers who shall not have taken the precaution to engage quarters must skirmish with great liveliness to llml u bed. The hotels of this city, great and small, mid of alt classes, are us follows, and rank In excellence iw wellusprleu about in tho order named s Tho Grand Hotel, tho Gibson House, tho Burnet House, tho St. Nicholas, the Arlington, the Walnut Street, tho 81. James, the Henris, the .Madison, the Galt, tho Broadway, Hurd’*, tho Carlisle, Heed’s, the Schultz, ami the Crawford. Tho Grand is modest, and claims a budding capacity of nnlyHOO; hut by doing as tho ('ontinenlnl did at Philadelphia four years ugo. It can stow away at least l.imo, and it Is snfo to as- Biinie that It will do It. Tho Gibson, which Is (ho next ilret-class house, can do as well, and the Bur net nearly as well. U cun be said with safely that these three holds cun bed at least .T,aoo. All tho others, including the Indiana, which was not men tioned, can together do as well as these three, so that the total hotel capacity of the city can he pul down at about tl.dOO, and it must bo kept in mind that lids estimate not only slightly stretches tliu truth, but very uncomfortably crowds the guests. There are perhaps some houses here which will mu ■‘double up”—us hold-keepers call putting four or live gentlemen Into u room ihiu will only decent ly accommodate one—but tho only hoasu which has made nay declaration to this died is tho Ht. Nich olas, nt the corner of Fourth ami ilnce, which Is nn expensive hotel on tho European plan, and has only twenty rooms. It does not want a moh, sad when it has ono guest to each of Its twenty rooms, its capacity is exhausted until some one of tho twenty vacates. Hut there will lie very fewofsuch houses, for the rule will be to crowd m everybody who can by any possibility be accorded that amount of door space which hu would need as a grave. Even then tho hotels cannot accommodate half who will be boro, and what Is to be done with tho remainder is a problem which Cincinnati Is now considering. All the steamboats which can lie made available will be turned into bulging-houses for tho occasion, hut they cannot, by any stretch of thw Imagination, bed mom than 200 each, and cannot bo more that ten op twelve in number. All public means being thus exhaust cd, It will bo seen that Glnclmmtl can put 8,000 people to lied, and if Hi, 000 persons come here, ns « great many expect, It is not easy to ecu what Is to become of tho remainder, unless private citizens take them into their houses nud euro fur them. Arrangements to this cud arc now being made by the Committee, which will no doubt hu successful. It ta of no nso, 1 may add, for anybody to write here for rooms In uny of the lending hotels, fur nil have-been taken, and In most casus by States. At the Grand Hotel tho whole house has been se cured by Now York,lndiana, Ohio, Kentucky,Con necticut, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and North Caro- ISua, wlthsomu organizations from several .Stales outside of tho delegates. Now York being first on hand, hud Its pick, and has most of thu parlor Hoar, but Indiana has managed to secure a parlor to bo used us headquarters. At thu Gibson llouso both New York ami Indiana have secured rooms, and the following States havu obtained headquarters and rooms for their ilulo gates: Michigan, Now Jersey, HUudo Island. -Mis slsslppl, California, Arkansas, Georgia, Mas»u chiisetts, and West Virginia. Ohio has some sleeping-rooms, but tho Slate has secured spacious apartments In Tike's Gpi-ru-lloiise for their head quarters. Tnu Bristow Club of Nuw York, lUO strong, havo the bllllurd-room ut thu Gibson, and nut only must usu it us headquarters, but sleep In It. Thu hiatus which have not been named will hu found ut tho Burnet, St, James, Walnut Street, and other houses, but must of thum ut thu Burnet where the omnipresent Nuw York and Indiana again appear with rooms engaged. U Is evident at this glance ut thu holds that the period of Hui Convention Is to hu a season of turbulence and tribulation. I am glud 1 uni able to show that none of this will bu obtruded upon tbu Convention Itself. Happily for nil concerned, tho preparations fop thu great occasion weru kept out of thu hands of thu machlnu politicians, and confided to a Commit leu of citizens, a large majority of whom are busi ness men, who havo gone at tho thing In a business way. 'Tills Committee consists of w. Jt. tlhatiuc, LcwlsOJenn, T. T. Lane, Thomas Gilpin, Joshtli Kirby, Augustus Wessd, Benjamin Eggleston, N. H. Burton, H. 8. Davis, a. F. Covington, A. lllckenluoper, JohnShlllUo, James hands, A. D. Bullock, and Jacob iH/mv. Theta are only two professional politicians In this list, (hu remainder being gentlemen well known In the business cir cles of thu city. The machine known as tho Cen tral licuubilcau Organization has been Itching to f:ui hula of the Job, and, having failed, la now try ug to get credit for whut has been admirably done by others. It was thu business of tho Com rirlttcc, first of all, to raise money with which to prepare thu hall, ami that was uuslly done. It Is well known by this time that tho Cunvuntbm is to bu held In Exposition Hall, which bus Its main en trance on Kim street, übovo Thirteenth, and lias a atngu entrance on i'lum street. It Is three-qiiar tors of a mtlo away from tho leading hotels, and is reached by two op tbreo Hues or uorso-cars, but their capacity la limited, and tho grout majority will find It necessary to walk.
