In a large sense go-, ern the action of Ihe Chicago
Convention on July 8.

fitMi persons l ho are to arrive on Tuesday after?
noon. The County Democracy will arrive ahout
the same time with 4oO representatives, who will
leave, New-York on a BBBMaal train hy the West
tshore road. Irving Hall has secured rooms for
ahout 130, and the Independen! and James O'Brien
Dtuiocrala will uuinrn-r al least 100. Altogether
Shout 1,'JOO Democrats from New-York Bato will he

date fm President. I.?rge delegation* aro ex
pectod from Urooklyn, Albany, Hullalo, Kochostea
Troy and ot hoi cities. The outsiders come hereto
* shout " for I'levelaiudor Flower. Apoaront ly it
ia alway* deemed necessary hy n Democratic candi?
date to have a. large outside following present at a
?convention to impress Ihe delegates with the fact
that the people aro demanding muli candidates
m.-ce**. T'ot one-half these outsiders can get inside
the Town Hall where the 'eonveutlon in to he held.
1 he only work of any consequence before the
convention is that of seloctiug delegates to Chi?
cago. Two candidates for the Court et Appeals
lienoh are t<> be nominated, hut the *;inio course will
V followed in lhat matter a* at Vtica, where Judge
Andrews (Hep.) and Judge Hnpallo (Dem.) were
renominated. Presidential electors and a new
State Committee are to be chosen, but there will be
bo contest on those matters. The Democrats sand
?'_' delegates to Chicago?the same number that the
J'epuhlicans aent to their convention, but the
absence of the district method of choosing deieg.it.-.
and the recognition of the unit rule, leaves it in tho
power of Ihe majority of the convention to deter?
mine how every delegate to Chicago Khali vote.
Hence, if any candidate can capture the majority of
the convent mu, ho can go to Chicago with the solid
ooaoaaxaja* ,,t \,wbpik State, and may, in the present
unsettled state of the party, bini- himself upon Hu
))omocrals as their candidate for l'resident. For that
reason more interest attaches to the decision of this
convention than to that of any other State. The
convention itself only chooses for delogates-at
large. The delegates of each Congressional District
name two delegates, but those selections all have
to be continued by the Stato Convention, as Hs
credentials will alone be recognized at Chicago,
Under the established custom of the party.
BEIWKKN CLEVELAND AND FLOWER.
As to w ho ? ill come mit ahead lure, there la no
satisfactory means of determining. The race is ap
V rently between Cleveland and Flower. Both
aides are claiming a majority. Tho Flower men are
confident. There is no doubt that they will control
the convention, if tin-delegates chosen for Flower
Stick to him Hut powerful m ll nonces have been set
at wink by tlie Governor to change the opinions of
Borne of the delegates, which leaves the result in
doubt. All depends upon the action of the dclc
frates from New-York and Urooklyn. Euell of the
IM AaaSBflsMj Districts in the State sends Hire
ib-lcgate*. making .'181 !n all. Thefreprescutation <>f
New-York and Kings .Counties comprises 108 dele
irne.nly one-third of tho entire convention.
Tb* Urooklyn delegates have uot announced any
candidate as their < hois c. They comprise the well
Jtnown "gang." and are owned by "Hoss''
>b Laughlin. "J mi" Dunne and" Hilly " Dwyer, the
tW? Bria* luliters, "Tom" Lowery, " l'at ? lla.\.-is

It is not Improbable, however, that Hrookhn

a close conti st.
lhere is likely to be a lively contest over the
fptt talion of New-York City. In 1880b lin?

whereupon "Hoss" Manning said that nothing
bad bi-oii gained by placating T.immBET. I Rt m-xt

kicked out-ref u^e.l ,\.-n a single delegate,
although after Ihe 'condoning" of the
j.j.-\Lois ..eur th<r' w;is no gnmnd for such a
(..ur--. The DbBbBMsMBS again lost the State, and
lummany clearly demonstrated that it represent,??!
th<- majority of the Democratic votes of New

Tammany was ai uitted on a basis Mast would still
leave to th" County Democia ? the credit
of being the regular org.-t'ii/alioii. Tammai.v

I ..in,fy Democracy was allowed thirty-eight voles,

The resolution to that effect adopted hp Tammany
on Saturday night, and Mr. Kelly's outspoken
words that he ia no longer willing to accept Ibo
proffered terms of the Manuing machine. Lave cre
atad consternation auioug Cleveland's friends. \Vith
the open hostility of Tammany, his candidacy is im?
possible. Hut the Governor has insulted Tammany
?r?r and over again, while Hubert G. Thompson's
Interests have been consulted in every appoint?
ment made by the Governor in New-York
City. It is impossible, t hare fore, to tell
what will be the result of Tammany's
action. If it Manda firm. A Manning agent hero

EX-GOYERNOB HKDI.E'S VIEWS.
riLI>EN'S LETTKK?QUALIFICATION'S OK TUE DEM?
A Tumim reporter asked ex-Oovcrnor
Joseph TX Iledle, of New-Jersey, what lie thought of Mr.
Tlldeu's letter declining to be a caiulidnte before tho De?
mocratic (-i. volition. Mr. lie.lle said lu reply i
" I was favorable to the nomination of Mr. Tilden?to
the nomination of the ' Old Ticket '-provided Mr. Tilden
felt that lils health waa eurfielently good to accept and
to serve If elected. I can't say that tho publication of the
letter wa* a surprise to tue, for I felt that he would Baa*?l
definitely on that point in duo time, and lt ho were con?
st-Luis of his inability to serve he would say so. I have
always had the greatest conbdenco in him, and IsBllOTOd
tlnit he was sincere in declining in 18**0. I think this
letter ls quite touching) because it comes from a clear
conviction of lils inability to accept, and ls the result of a
resignation to the inevitable.
? Thc party should now nominate '.wo of the strongest
men lt can bud, full of vigor and health and as much
disconnected us possible from any of the entanglements
of tin War. My idea ls to have In this campaign new
blood, new vigor, and ability equal to a thorough rc for in
hi all thc departments of thc (.ovenimeiit. It seems to
me that the disposition for a change ls strong and that
thc I.emiirratic party hassan opportunity to make nom?
inations acceptable to that sentiment. I ;thluk there ls a
pretty geueral aversion to fighting over again tho Issues
arising out of the War, anti to keeping alive the antsy
onism between H .rtli anti South. A diiterent generation
now exists and the material advance of this great land
requires modern thought and action, and the Impulses
of a BlBteeaiBiialilp di vealed ni tba reelings of tba war.
The Democratic party In making Its nominations ought to
be liidlllcrelit as to whether thc cainlltlates or their
friends have pecuniary merin* or nut. I believe that in
the^preeenl state of tne public mind they are better nil
without money than.-its lt. I would uko to see ibm sss

A TESTIMONIAL TO JUDGE ERSKINE.
IDT TKI ECKAI'll TO THE TWnCSE.I
Atlanta, June 15.?An incident occurred
yesterday evening; In the Federal Court Room which ls of
much significance, being the presentation of a portrait of
Judge John Erskine to the Court ia a testimonial of tbo
Georgia Bar to an acceptable Federal official. Of all the
Federal Judicial ottlcers appointed In the reconstruction
era, none was more successful than Judge Erskine lu en?
forcing law and at the same time winning the confidence
of people naturally hostile to his party politic*. In all
the delicate questions which came before him under the
Civil Rights and Election laws, Judge Erskine made lt so
plain that he was a Judge and not a partisan tbat the
people soon accorded him tho same respect whlcb they
gave the State Judge ot the Democratic, faith. When
Judge Erskine, hy reason of age, retired from tbe Bench,
he did so to the genuine regret of the people and the
nar. I or some time a movement has been on foot to In?
dicate this appreciation or placing tn the court room a
large portrait hy Gutllanmo.
Among those who took part lu the presentation were
tho pulges of the Supreme Court, several Judges of the
Superior Courts and a large number of the most
prominent lawyers of the State. A preamble and resolu?
tions wem presented extolling In hlgn terms the career of
Judgo Erskine. In behalf of tho District Court, Judge
Md'oy accepted the portrait and ordered lt to he placed
above the Judge's liench. A telegram was received from
Judge Erskine, who ls now In New-York, returning thanks
to the people who so honored him.

HTA**Hiv<;r*iV, Juno 15,?It li expected that tho
report recently submitted to the House by
tho select committee on reform in the Ciril
Service will be circulated by the Demo
nats aa a campaign document. It is understood
that the report was prepared with thakl object in
view, and that before it was adopted and pre?
sented to the House a draft of it was
submitted for criticism and revision to
such eminent Civil .Service reformers as Speaker
Carlisle. Samnel J. Randall. W. R. Morrison and
J. Randolph Tucker. At the suggestion of some of
tho Democratic reformers, it is said, the committeo
broadened the scope of the document, so as to in*
elude a formal approval of thc work of thc Civil
Service Commission. It is noted asa political coin?
cidence that the report was submitted June 7, ths
day following the adjournment of the Republican
National Convention. It ia an adverse report on
two bills iu trod need January 14, more than five
months ago, which shows that the select committee
acted only after cautious and mature deliberation.
One of the bills was ottered by Mr. Clay, of Ken?
tucky, a Democrat, and the other by Mr. Shaw, of
Illinois, also a Democrat.
A SPRAT TU CATCH GCDGEONS.
Although the report was unanimously agreed to
by the committee, there is good reason to believe
that a majority of the Democratic members were
at first opposed to it and yielded a reluctant assent
to it only after strong and repeated representations
by prominent Democratic leaders as to the favor?
able eil.-ei it would have upon party prospects.
The ground of opposition aud subsequent reluc?
tance was that in case the Democratic party should
triumph in tho coming Presidential contest, tho
report would bo an ugly difficulty in the way oi
turning Republicans out of Government employ*
ment aud putting Democrats in then places. To
this objection the answer was that neither a Demo?
cratic President nor a Democratic Congress could
be bound by the report of a House Committee, and
that there was no reason to fear a way
would not be found to make room for
Democrats in case of Democratic succei?t*. In pri?
vate con vernation among Democrats thc real object
ni tbe report ia freely discussed, and thc leaders aro
laughing in their sleeves at tho "smart" trick they
have devised, and by which they In mm; to gull a
certain class of voters.
-ACTION WILL M. NEEDKD.
With the report itself Republicans can find no
fault, but thc Democrats in di .tributing it as a cam?
paign document will bo compelled to exercise great
care. If many copies, bearing the imprint of the
Democratic Campaign Committee, should fall into
the h:>nd.i of greedy Democrats who believe that "to
the victors belong tho spoils," and who have been
hungering for office for twenty years, the result
would be far from satisfactory in a party scuso
to the Democratic leaders. The ard-ir of
Democratic politicians nnd office seekers:
who ian read BM who have been zealously work?
ing year alter year to turn Republican* out ia
order to get thisfisslros in, would not bc atiuiu
liitetl, to say the least, by the receipt fi mn Demo?
