Yesterday was a day of excitement for
those here for the last big Convention
ot 1884. There was more eniinslasm,
more shouting, more people on the
streets, more bands and processions,
more crowding ot hotel corridors, more
hot and cxcltinz discussions, than on
any day from the beginning to the end of
the Republican Convention. The great
Butler demonstration ot Saturday night
had truch to do with this. Hundreds of
raembcis ot trade and labor organiza
tions who took little or no
Interest in the Catherine of a month
rco arc now arglns into tho I
hotels and crowding the curbstones
arguing and cheering for the man of
their choice, and wearers of Batter
badges, with the well-known physiogno
my of the lion of Massachusetts, are to
be met on every hand. This fact coupled
with Saturday right's demonstration Is
anything but plcas.ug to the Southern
delegations, and they do not hesitate to
express their opinions freely. The result
has been pretty excltinz debates, which
it times have threatened to develop Into
something warmer than mere argument.
ANYBODY TO BEAT BCTLER.
A. canvass of the vaHous Southern dele
gations was made In the morning, and
the almost unanimoa opinion expressed
may be condensed into a-slngte sentence:
"We will support anybody upon whom
Kew York can unite except But
ler. Him we will not support."
Outside of Butler the condition
of affairs was precisely the same as
twenty-four hours before plenty of
booms, but no one claiming the
lead. Nor have any dark horses been
uncovered. The numerous processiona
ot the day sadly disturbed the quiet
harmony ot the usual Chicago Sunday.
The County Democracy of New York
arrived a few minutes before three
o'clock in the morning. When the
train of thirty cars drawn br two loco
motives rolled Into the Chicago and
Western Indiana Railroad depot there
were nearly fire hundred Democrats ot
Chicago ready to greet the visitors from
New York. At 1 1:20 the
cook county democratic clcb,
numbering over one hundred, a larse
number 01 Democratic vetctsns and the
sub-reception committee formed In line
on Monroe street, near Dearborn, and
L marched to the depot There they had to
wait for more than three hours before
the train arrtreii. ine oovs passca iuc
time singing and dancing on the platform.
The train, as it approached the depot,
was saluted with, a volley of fire crackers
and with lusty cheers. There were about

DisaiAKGE or rimnvomts.
festerday afternoon the Cook County
Democracy and Union Veterans, with
muMc and' firing banners, marclied to the
Union Depot and escorted tne McDonald
Club ot Iudlans. to their headquarters.
The streets along the line of march were
erowujd. Mike JlcDonald led the pro
cession. A little later the County Demo
crats of New York, In two detachments,
with a? many ban-Is, playing lively tuues,
went f the Twellth Mreet depot, receiv
ed their brethren of Irving Hall with
open arm and escorted them to the
Leland. More people gtceted the New
Yorkers than participated in the recep
tion to the Itidianlans, aad thi march to
the hotel was one continuous ovation.
Chlcagoans do not have an opportunity
to cheer political processions every Sun
day In the jear, but they certainly made
up for lost opiMirtuullics yesterday. The
crowning demoo,tratlon of the day was
reserved for the
CtllEVTAlS or TlMMAXY HALL
and his henchmen. It was nearly seven
o'clock In the evening when their trains
arrived at the Tweif th Street Depot, The
various local Democratic organizations
were on baud in force, and their ranks
were augmented by several thousands of
lookers-on. Deafening cheers greeted
the Tammanyttes as they emerged from
the depot, and they were continued like
a fusilade of artillery as the line moved
up State street, the sidewalks of which
were packed with a dense mass ot hu
manity. Wlienthc Palmer House was
reached th.e services of a squad of police
were necessity to effect an entrance for
the new arrivals. John Kelly, arm la
arm with Mayor Carter Harrison, led the
way. His appearance in the rotunda was
the signal tor a burst of applause. The
ladles in the gallery waved handkerchiefs
and flags, iten Butler took la the scene
by peeping down over tho
smoulders or a fair immsel.
Roger A. Pryor right behind him, ran
hi lingers meditatlfciy through his long
hair, and the usual sphinx-like counte
nance of Congressman MorrUou lighted
up with surprise at the heartiness of the
reception. Kelly, however, taking no no
tice of the plaudits, marched with the rest
! pf the deitgatUn to the Id. Hard hall,
j Availed until the order to disband was
given, and again emerged and mounted
the stairs to the Tammany headquarters,
the cheering meanwhile being resumed
with increasing Intensity. For flltcer,
minutes thereafter the crowd veiled Iicll
hoarse in its calls for "Krl.y" and
"speech," but the chieftain Old not re
