rupt consideration that the Snyders were
the best Republican workers in the Eighth
ward. Logically the last acquittal, like
the first, was secured by a prostitution of
the machinery of justice te serve the exi
gencies of the Republican party. Rut as
all the parties implicated, as well as the
judges, belong te that party, the court is
unanimous ler once that it need take
no cognizance of the imposition practiced
upon it and the disgrace attaching te it.

Tim Strawberry Campaign Itoemlnc. Open
ing St- Mary's Festival.
Lat evening a strawberry festival for
tlu- benefit of St. Mary's orphanage began
in the " old .stone church," en "West Vine
street. The ancient and time-worn build
ing was entirely metamorphosed in its in
ner appearance and presented a thorough
ly attractive spectacle in its tasteful deco
ration, and the scene partook of additional
zest by the animated faces of the scores of
ladies anl pretty girls who are in supreme
command and brook no masculine inter
ference. Entering the deer at the west
end of the room the visitor's attention
is fust arrested by the cigar table
immediately en the ieft. It is
.surmounted by an arch decked with white
tarlatan and ivy, and set oil' with a pair
of American ilags, and is in charge of Miss
Marie Uryant, assisted by Misses Lizzie
McGevcrn, Laura Masker, Katie Habcr
btish and Lillie llaberbush. In addition
te an abundance of excellent cigars and
fragrant cigarettes, which are disposed of
at the most enticing terms, the table is
supplied with a number of articles, useful
and ornamental, te be chanced off, among
them a handsome satchel, gentleman's
lantern for lighting cigars, set of field
croquet, a ten of coal, etc., and the most
prominent article en the table is a beauti
ful gipsy bucket which standi in the cen
tre, and is tilled with cigars.
Adjoining this cigar table en the left is
the fancy table, where Misses Reekie Mc Mc Mc
C'oiiemy, Annie Deaner and Mary Licbty
are in charge, and their corps of efficient
aids includes the foil 'wing young ladies :
Misses Lizzie Malene, the Misses Royle,
Lucy McCoueinv, the Misses Rcilly, Mary
Harry, Hcckie Rhe..'ls, Jennie Murphy and
Lizzie Shealf. There ::". a large number
of useful and fancy articles in sale and for
chance here, among the latter being a very
h;indseine cut glass inkstand, a pretty
clock, a box of line Havana cigars, silver
cake basket, etc. An elegant begonia oc
cupies a central position of the table, and
adds materially te its appearance. There
is a bazaar attached te this table, in
charge of some of the ladies above men
tioned wheie visitors are afforded an op
portunity te ' try their luck" for the low
price of ten cents, or three chances for a
At the east end of the room is the flower
table, which, of course, presents a most at
tractive appearance, and wheie elegant
bouquets and charming bnutennieres arc
sold cheap for cash. There is a large fruit
stand in the centre, surmounted by a
sujMjrb horse-shoe, composed of rare and
beautiful tlewers,aud a handsome pyramid
of buttonhole-bouquets en the north end
of the table. There arc for chance here a
locking chair and a dell baby, a pig and a
ten-dollar geld piece. Te-morrow evening,
when admission te the' festival will be free,
there will be a "package auction " at this
table, when doubtless there will be plenty
of amusement for bidders and spectators.
Miss Altick is in chief command, and her
assistants are Misses Keller, Lant, Wcntz,
Wade, licnnawir, I Iarbcrger,Mazie Malene,
Ceylo and O'Neill.
At the south-east corner of the room is
the table where big plates of ripe red
strawberries are served by the accomodat accemodat accomedat
ing ladies in charge at the low price of ten
cents. The luscious fruit is temptingly dis
played, and the appearance of the table is
enchauced by several bouquets with which
it is decorated. An elegant geld-band
china tea-set is te be chanced off here.
Miss Mary Dougherty is in charge and
her assistants are the Misses Sullivan,
Helland, Tedd, McDivitt and Quinn.
The confectionery table along the south
wall is gorgeous in its patriotic panoply of
red. white and blue, and the arches
erected above it arc handsomely trimmed
with tarlatan. Several sweetly-singing cana
ries carol forth their invitations te the
visitor, whose mouth is fairly made te
water by the abundance of geed tilings
under which the table groans. Cakes
and confections and nuts arc here
presented in tempting array, several large
and handsome iced cakes being notably
prominent. The customer here is afforded
en opportunity of trying his luck in
"chancing' for a beautiful toilet set anil
pair of vases. Miss Annie Ueyle, is in
charge here assisted by Misses Dennelly,
Doerseni, Nerbcck. Fitzpatrick, Delia
and Katie Deyle, and Sallie Kauffman.
Directly en the right of the entrance is
the ice cream table, where Miss Maggie
Malency is in charge, whose assistants are
Misses Ellen Mulraney, Ellic Rartley,
Annie Halm, Julia Phaleu, Katie Daly,
Resa Quinn and Maggie Delan. The ice
cream here dispensed is delicious in llaver,
and the size of the plates is monumental.
A feature of interest at this table is the
contest for a Bible, which is being voted for
between Misses Maggie Maleney, Maggie
Delan, Katie Daly, Mary German and
Annie Lawrence. The table is prettily
ornamented with fern plants and bouquets.
The festival is certainly a delightful
place te spend a leisure evening. An at
mosphere of welcome pervading the vener
able yet gaily decorated room greets the
visitor as he enters, and the stranger is
quickly put at ease by the obliging man
ners of the fair chiefs and pretty lieuten
ants in charge of the several tables. The
festival will probably continue for ten or
twelve days, and nothing has been left un
done te make it a successful and pleasant
affair. The managers extend an invitation
te their friends and the public generally te
conic early and stay late.

On Wednesday evening while driving
near Wheatland, the two-horse phaeton of

phaeton of Geerge D. Sprcchcr, which was
in charge of Win. Frankford, coachman,
and in which were seated Mrs. Sprcchcr,
Miss Lillie Sprecher and Miss Lewis, a
sister of Mrs. Sprcchcr. The Sprecher
phaeton was evcrturned,and the occupants
might have been seriously injured had net
the pole broken and the traces become
loose, allowing the horses te get away
from the wrecked vehicle.
Mr. Sprecher's driver alleges that the
fault of the accident lies altogether with
Mr. llehrer, who drove recklessly or care
lessly, and Mr. llehrer alleges that he was
driving with all due care. Mr. Sprcchcr
sent a note te Mr. Iiehrcr relative te the
affair, and this morning Mr. llehrer called
en him accompanied by legal counsel. Mr.
Sprecher was much exasperated and warm
words followed which will probably result
in a law suit.

A Repert that was Changed.
Chicago, June 4. At 2:20 this morning
the committee en credentials concluded
their labors by voting te report in favor of
the sitting delegates from West Virginia
and Utah and the contesting delegates
from the 9th district of Pennsylvania (E.
Iv. 3Iaitiu and A. Kline), and the 13th dis
trict of Illinois. It refused te interfere
with the delegates at large or these from
the 2d district of Illinois. A resolution de
claring that the Springfield (111.) conven
tion was a legally constituted body and in
selecting delegates te the national conven
tion acted in geed faith, was rejected by a
vote et 27 te 17, two net voting.
While the interest in the convention and
its business continues, there is a visible
abatement of the excitement this morning.
At 10;- there were few delegates in their
seats, and the galleries were net half filled.
Spectators, however, arc still pouring in
and as the weather is cool, there is no doubt
that another hour will see the house cram
med te its utmost capacity.
A Het Discussion.
Ill the discussion of Conkling's motion
te exclude the West Virginia dissenters.
Mr. Hale, of W. Va., who voted "aye."
defended the rights of his colleague te
vote as he saw fit applause ; te utter his
sentiments as an individual delegate.
Mr. Brandagec, of Conn., said the
question was net one of free speech ; no
man here will seek te hinder any delegate's
free speech ; it was only a question as te
what any man would de for the support
of Republican principles. He continued
at considerable length and was greeted
A'Fierce Thrust at Conkling.
Mr. McCormick, of West Virginia,
avowed himself one of the disscutants ;
net because he did net expect te support
the nominee of this convention, for he did
intend te de that no matter who he sheu'd
be. He was as geed a Democrat as tl e
gentleman from New Yerk and whereas
the latter made only one speech for the
nominee of the last national Republican
convention, he ( McCormick ) made ena
hundred. Great applause and cheers. He
opposed the resolution only because it de
clares that men arc unlit te sit in the con
vention if they differ from ether members
A Colored Brether Wants te Knew.
Yeung (Tcnn.), colored, supported a
resolution and asked why, if these who
voted " no " meant te join the Democratic
party, they should be helping te cheese
the nominee of the Republican party ; if it
was a mere question of personal independ
ence let them keep it te themselves, but
let them leave the Republican party te
take care of itself.
Garfield's Grave Apprehension.
Garfield (Ohie) expressed his fear that
the convention was about te commit a
grave error. He would state the case ;
every delegate save three had voted for
the resolution, aud the three gentlemen
who bad voted against it had risen in their
places and stated that they had expected
and intended te support the nomination of
the convention ; but, that it was net, in
their judgment, a wise thing at this time
te pass the resolution which all the ether
delegates voted for. Were they te be dis
franchised because they thought se? (Cries
of "no," "no.") That was the question.
Was every delegate te have his Republi
canism inquired into before he was allowed
te vote ? Delegates were responsible for
their votes, net te the convention hut te
their constituents. Cheers. He himself
would never in any convention vote
against his judgment. He regretted
that the gentleman from West
Virginia had thought it best te break
it. i ii .
mu uariuuuy ui me convention l
by their dissent ; did net knew these gen
tlemen nor their affiliations, nor their rela
tions te the candidates. If this convention
expelled these men, the convention would
have te purge itself at the end of every
vote, and inquire hew many delegates
who had voted "no" should go out. He
trusted the gentleman from New Yerk
would withdraw his resolution and let the
convention proceed with business.
Pixley (Cal.) moved te lay the resolution
en the table. Applause.
Conkling demanded a call of the Tell.
Hisses, long and furious.
The call of the roll was ordered.
Conkling inquired whether the three
gentleman from West Virginia did say
that they would vote for the nominee of
The chair said it was net his province te
answer the question.
Conkling said he would net press his
resolution if his question was answered iu
the affirmative, aud finally he withdrew
the resolution as he said there seemed te
be some doubt. Applause and hisses.
Sewcll (X. J.), moved that the commit
tee an credentials new report ; adopted.
The chair called the galleries te order for
disturbing the convention, and said if there
was any mere hissing he would clear that
part from whence it came.
The chairman of the credentials commit

Sewell the committee ea rules was ordered
te report, with the understanding that no
action be taken upon their recommenda
tions until after the report of the com
mittee en credentials and action taken
Itruce in the Chair.
The chair called Senater Bruce, of Mis
sissippi, one of the vice presidents, tem
porarily te the chair. As Bruce came for
ward he was received with applause.
Garfield, from the committee, reported
the rules commended for the government
of the convention. The rules were read by
the secretary. The one which forbids any
unit rule was received with applause.
Uarhcld said he iiidTiet understand that
the rules were new up for discussion but
only for information. The only changes
from 187G were verbal merely, or effected
their rearrangement in a mere convenient
order, except that the committee had
added te what was new numbered as rule
8, a prevision clearly aud explicitly em
bodying the uniform precedents of all
previous Republican conventions te the
manner of taking the vote of states that
Hear resumed the chair.
Sharpc (N. Y.) presented a minority re
port of the committee en rules, signed by
the delegates en that committee from Ala
bama, Arkansas, Flerida, Arkansas, Miss
issippi, Missouri, Kentucky, New Yerk,
Tennessee, Virginia, Illinois and Colerado,
recommending the adoption of Rule (J el'
the convention of 1870, in the same lan
guage as in 187(5, as fellows :
"In the record lit" the votes by states tbe
vote of each state, territory, and the Dis
trict of Columbia, shall be announced by
chairman, aud iu case the vote of any state,
territory, or the District of Columbia,
shall be divided, the chairman shall an
nounce the number of votes cast for any
any candidate or for or against any propo prepo
sition." The minority express belief that
the addition made by the majority of the
committee is unwise, that it tends te in
vite dissension which might net etheiw isc
be forced, that, as a protection of the
rights of individual member.'', it is unnec
essary, and that it gratuitously and in ad
vance casts an imputation en the chairn e.i
of resf ectivc delegations.
Action en the report of the committee
en rules, and the views of the minority
was withheld for the present.
The committee en resolutions have no J

The platform rehearses the great benefits
of Republican rule te the country ; it has
resolved solidity te national finances,
lifted the credit of the country ; has etj
st i red prosperity of the future. It advocates
popular education, adherence te the con
stitution, prohibition of the use of public
funds for sectarian schools, favors the pro

industries, denounces polygamy, renews
the obligations of the country te the Union
soldiers, opposes unlimited Chinese immi

The Contested Seats at Last.
A message was received from the com
mittee en credentials that it would be
ready te report iu thirty minutes, the con
vention accordingly waiting idle for the
committee's report and many of the dele
gates are leaving the hall.
After about an horn's delay, waiting for
the committee en credentials, the conven
tion again came te order at 1 p. m. Con Cen
ger (Mich.) presented the report, apolo
gizing for the length of time they had
been compelled te detain the convention,
and explaining the necessity. They
had been continuously and laboroits laberoits laboreits
ly engaged in the duties ever
since they were appointed with
the exception of a recess of three
or four hours. The numerous questions
before them had been discussed with can
dor aud frankness, and settled without
dispute in the committee is te thciractien.
no matter hew much they differed as te
The recommendations of the committee
respecting contests are given above. In
addition thereto the committee reported
that the final decision of many of the con
tests depends upon the adoption by the con
vention of the principle of congressional
district representation. This the commit
tee believe te be sound. Applause.
The report cites Hen. J. Den
Cameren's support of the right
of individual district representation
at the convention of 187C, under precisely
similar circumstances and a similar call for
a national convention. They cite the form
of a call of the convention in 1858 as evi
dence that it was the pur4)0 e of the Re
publican party te establish the principle of
This was sustained, also, by all prece
dents in the party down te date. In no
case has the fair action of districts, in s
lecting its rcpicscntativcs, been overruled
or changed by any state or national con
ventien. Applause. The committee de
net believe that this right of congressional
district representation should new be in
vaded for the first time by the action of
national convention. If a state convent i? i
can by bare majority overrule the will of
the people fairly expressed in the selection
of district delegates it might as well
appoint at once all delegates. Great
applause. Nominations made though
such misrepresentations were net likely te
be ratified by the people. It was the duty
of the convention te disapprove emphati
cally all attempts te override high moral
customs of party. (Applause.)
Clayten (Ark.) presented the minority
report. It differs with the report of the
majority as te the application of the prin
ciple of district representation. The recom
mendation of the majority, if adopted,
would work as an ex-pest facto rule, re
versing the long-established usage of party
in many states. Applause.
