bexvens. In one Christ is gathering His
fleck ; then we have the three hundred
Capuchins with harps, and in the last is
the throne with archangels surrounding
it. The task of executing these pen pic
tuies, as well as all the ornamental writ

whom devoted their entire time te it. A
paiticular loom called "Schreib Zimmer,"
or writing room, was used for this puipese
Stepping ever into the Sister house,
chance niay hi ing you into contact with
the cner.ible Sarah Bauman, new past
thite score. Her face is the idealization
of peace, puiityand contentment, and her
cunvcisatieii is beautiful with wisdom and
godliness. She will point you with pride
te the wei k of two sisters, Anastasia and
Iphijienia, which is a laige alphabet book
executed in ink, and completed in 1730.
Tlicic is no question as te the artistic ment
of the volume. One letter occupies a
page, which is sui rounded with an ornate
bolder of unique design. The letters aic
Gothic, and after a bundled and thirty
years the lines are almost as sliai p as cop
per plate engraving.
The buiying-gieund of the association
adjoins the public read. Time, like a con
siderate mother, has thiewn ever the
sleepers her gieen gainient of mess and
lichen. The Du likens' manner of sculpture
was .somewhat singular. Their dead weie
buiied in close contact uud in small groups.
The cemeteiy is dotted all evei with these
mounds. Iicissel lies under a huge
slab, the inscriptions en which aie

elected a tombstone te " Dcidnch

of the tiibe of Fahnestecks," who
emigrated liem Pniisi.i. All the insciip insciip

of Gcitnautewu several hundred of
the wounded weie tianspeited teKphrata,
where they met with kindly nursing at the
hands of these people. At least one hun
dred and tilty of the seldiciy succumbed
fiem wounds and sickness and were
hastily intened at vaiieus points aieund

was elected twent j cut. age, when, the
enthusiasm and wherewithal having
evaporated, its completion was defeired.
The stone fei the shaft are still lying
aieund, a niiinbei of the slabs being
dressed ready fei setting.

seeming bargains, because they paid but a
small price fei the showy articles they bought.
The really geed plated ware el today is a
far hotter article than that el ten yean age.
Impievcments have been made in almost
e eiy branch of its manufacture. The metal
which suives as its basis is liaidcr and mere
durable than lernierly. The joints are soldei seldei

silver plating is laid en in a better manner
and altogether the fabric is mere duiable i's

THE STRUGGLE FOR SEATS.
The Antl-Crant Men Ruling the Creden
The Unit Rule llrokeu.
Chicago, June 3. After conclusion of
the hearing of the Illinois contest in the
committee en credentials, at three o'clock
this morning a vote en the contest iu the
Seventh district of Alabama was taken,
resulting in resolving te report in favor of
the admission of Get. Smith and Willard
Warner, the (anti-Grant) contestants, by
a vote of 31 te 13.
General Kaum, a member of the com
mittee, who also acted as chairman of the
Springfield convention, then addressed the
committee en the Illinois contest.
The committee finally adjourned at four
o'clock until eleven te day without icach
a vote in the Illinois case.
The Unit Rule llreken.
The sub-committee en rules and order of
business, after a long session, agreed te a
list of rules nearly the same as these
adopted at Cincinnati in 18TC, the princi
pal difference being in tule Ne. 8, which
reads : " In the record of votes by states
the vote of each state and territory, and
the District of Columbia, shall be an
nounced by the chairman, and in case
the votes of any state, territory or the
District of Columbia shall be divided the
chairman shall announce the number of
votes cast for any candidate, or for or
against any piopesitson, but if exception
is taken by any delegate te the correctness
of such announcement by the chairman of
his delegation, the president of the con
vention shall direct the names of the mem
bers of such delegation te be called and
the result te be recorded in accordance
with the votes individually given." The
part of this rule from " but if exception, "
etc., is an addition which docs away with
the unit rule.
By the tenth rule it is provided that the
Republican national committee shall con

The Proceedings in Detail.
Chicago, 11:10 a. v.--The gallery and
iloer arc filling up new rapidly and the
scene in the hall is very impiessivc. Inter
esting discussions aie anticipated te-day,
and the expectations aie that there will
be an earnest contest between the rival
factious upon every point. It would be
hazardous te predict the results, but it is
believed the cicdential committee will
admit at least 18 of the 20 contestants
from Illinois who weie admitted eiiginally
te the Spiinglield convention and subse

Rev. F. A Xeblc, of Union Paik Con
gregational chinch, Chicago, elfcicd
Conkling Wants Time.
Conkling moved that the convention ad
journ or take a lecess till 0 p. m. Mr.
Hale made the point of elder that the
motion was debatable. The chair sustain
ed it. The question is new being de
bated. Hale in his speech holds that the con
vention must remain in a state of suspend
ed animation until the committees aic
ready te report.
Conkling followed Hale, claiming that
it would facilitate the business of the con
vention te take the recess, and said it was
net in eidcr te proceed till the committee
en credentials reported.
Conkling's motion for a recess was lest.
A Peculiar Preposition.
Mr. Jey, of Michigan, offered a resolu
tion that the centetants from the state of
Illinois be hcaid in convention by counsel.
A motion te lay it en the table was lest,
and the roll of the states en Mr. Jey's mo
tion was ordered.
Mr. Jey finally withdrew his lesolutien.
Fryc, of Maine, moved that the report
of the committee en rules and order of
business be requested.
Sharpc, of Xew Yerk, said that as there
would be majority and minority reports he
asked that it be delayed till the committee
en credentials reported.
Garfield said that .under the agi cement
it would net render a report until the
committee en credentials had reported un
less ordered by the convention.
Conkling inquired whether the commit
tee en contested seats was icad te report.
The chair replied that he was told the
committee was net ready nor likely te be
ready before several hours, perhaps net
before 4 p. m.
Conkling risiug again was received with
marked demonstrations of applause in the
galleries. lie said he also understood that
the rcpeit could net be had from the cre
dentials committee until late this after
noon ; of course no business could proper
ly be done until that report should be
received and the membership of the con
vention established ; therefore he moved
a recess until te-night.
Hale asked Conkling te give way but he
Hale made the point of order that the
motion te take a recess was debatable.
The chair sustained this point of order.
Mr. Hale rose te oppose the motion and
was received with marked applause, which
was renewed when he urged that the un
derstanding yesterday was that the con
ventien should this morning proceed te
He urged that there was business which
the convention could de in advance of the
report of the committee en credentials,
and cited the proceedings of the conven
tion of 187G, te show that much business
was then transacted in advance of the re
port en contested seats. -That committee
then, as new, had much hard work, and
the convention was permanently organ
ized before it reported. The con
vention of 1876 had also acted
en the report of the committee en
rules and order of business. Hale urged
that this convention is new ready for
business great applause and hoped that
it would net threw away its time, but go
en with its immediate duties.
Conkling rose te reply and wasagaiu
applauded. Meantime the aisles bad been
filled again by spectators and the chair
suspended business until they were again
Adjourned Until A P. M.
At 1:10 p. m., Mr. Fryc, of
Maine, Blaine's henchman, moved that the
convention take a recess until 5 p. ni. The
motion was carried.
It has been arranged for Cel. Ingcrsell
te present the claims of the Illinois con
tcstants in convention.
The committce en permanent organiza
tion reported the name of Gee. F. Hear
Conkling's Desire for Adjournment.
In his speech in favor of taking recess
until night, Conkling said that the only
work the convention would de before five
o'clock would be te sit en uncushiencd
scats ami de nothing; his motion
therefore was one of convenience ; it
was an open sccict that the committee
ou pcimanent organization would
report the continuance of the present pie
siding officer in the chair. It would net
take five minutes te settle the permanent
organization. There were important
questions te be settled here ; it is said that
the committee en rules have agreed te rec
ommend the adoption of the tlve minutes
mlc te govern the general, debate,
though the committee have excepted from
this limitation the debate en centested
seats. There was, therefore, nothing te de
piiorte the picscntatien of the report of
the committee en credentials and contest
Hale, en rising te reply, was received
with the wildest applause that has thus
far been heard in the convention. He
urged that if Conkling's argument
was sound and its points adopted in
every legislative body, suspending all
business until all contested questions
of scats should be settled, none would ever
de any business. Great applause. Beth

such contests which have been pending
