THAT BBIGHT LEGAL UCHT.
He Whips a Man at Hl own Heuse and U
Again Locked up.
Yesterday afternoon XJ. F. Lamar, the
bogus jewelry man, received a money
order for $25, and after considerable
trouble he succeeded in securing a man
who was able te identify him. After ob
taining the money he started out te take
in thecity. At a late hour last night he
stepped at the house of William Butler,
colored, en Middle street. While William
was standing at the deer engaged in con
versation with another man, Lamar
walked into the house, and going
up stairs took possession of a room.
Butler went te the room occupied
by Lamar and told him te leave. This the
jewelry man refused te de, but, drawing a
pistol from his hip pocket, he blew out the
light and pointed the weapon at Butler,
who fled, fearing that he would be killed.
After spending some time in the room,
Lamar went out and Butler get ready for
bed. When he was about going te his
room he found that he had no matches and
he started te go down into his barber
shop te get some. As he was going
out of the alley gate, Lamar, who
was standing en the pavement, made
an attack en him, striking him in the face
and cutting him badly. Lamar then left
the place and was seen afterwards arrested
for being disorderly by Officer Merringer.
lie was taken te the station house and this
morning the mayor discharged him upon
payment of a fine and costs.
Butler made complaint against him for
assault and battery before Alderman Don Den
nelly, of the Seventh ward, and en that
charge he was committed in default of bail
for a hearing en Friday next.

Things erystalize slowly. Payne seems te

ahead of all competitors. Payne's less
will benefit Randall as the second choice of

proceedings Indiana should indicate a
willingness te permit the use of McDon

tion is effected. The platform committee
is still at work en the resolutions.
The usual demonstrations of applause
were made as prominent gentleman came in
and when the banners of the Randall and
ether political clubs passed up the aisle.
The fact is unmistakable, however, that
there is here much less of this sort of out
side pressure for individual candidates
than at Chicago. The following fills
the blank in the permanent organi

After a brilliant voluntary en the organ;
the military band played various national
and operatic airs. " Yankee Doedle''
alone seemed te arouse the audience.
The convention was called te order at
10:40, when all the delegates appeared te
be present. Prayer was offered by Rev.
Dr. Charles Tayler, of Covington, Ken
tucky. The reading of the minutes of yesterday
was dispensed with.
Mr. Steutenberg (Ind.) moved a resolu

The chair announced first business in

minutes before there was any response.

asked the convention's will.
Mr. Martin moved that his report be

(Messrs Brawley and McOrmisten). In

low the sitting members te retain their

ether contests anywhere and the commit
tee reported the full list of delegates enti

Mr. Carrell, Kansas, presented a minor
ity report. It was proposed te have
the reading clerk read it, but the chair
said the gentleman from Kansas should
have his own way about it. (Mr. Carrell
proceeded te read his report, interrupted
with boisterous cries of " louder," " let
the clerk read it, etc.")
Judge Headly called for order, and
said the gentleman from Kansas could be
heard by the entire house if order were
preserved, and it was his right te be
heard and he should be heard. Ap
plause. Mr. Carrell proceeded te argue that the
position of the Tammany men at this
time is precisely analageus te the
condition of the New Yerk contestants
in 185G, when the contestants were ad
mitted te half the seats of New Yerk
in the convention, which action united the
party and led te victory. In conclusion

Shakespeare hall or Tammany delegation.

Messrs. Carrell, of Kansas; Fellows, of
New Jersey ; Barclla, of Colerado, and Da Da

Mr. Yeung demanded the previous ques.
tien, stating that the committee had spent
all night en this work, and he believed
had done it well. The previous question
was seconded, ordered, and the roll was
called. When Alabama was called it was
net ready, and an interval was allowed for
Mr. Yeung inquired whether, under the
rules of the Heuse of Representatives,
there would net be an hour for debate
after the previous question was ordered.
The chair replied that the convention
had adopted the rules of the last cenven
tien, when only five minutes debate were
allowed after an order of the previous
The roll call was proceeded with and
the vote resulted in 3C0 te 295, se the main
question was .Ordered te be new put.
Mr. Yeung said under rules of the house
there was one hour for debate of which
he proposed two-thirds be given te the
contestants and their friends. Applause.
Loud cries of "Platform," "The plat
form," caused Mr. Yeung te go te the
stage and he proposed te give forty
minutes te any man who would be sug
gested by Mr. Kelly, of N. Y., reserving
his own twenty minutes te reply. Ap
plause and hisses.
The chair stated that he understood it
te be the wish of the contestants te be rep
resented by Mr. Kelly, and asked that he be
accorded that privilege. Hisses and cries
of "Yes, yes".
Finally the chair announced that he
heard no objection and invited Mr. Kelly te
3Ir. Kelly net being in the hall, the ser
geant was instructed te escort te the plat
form anybody whom the New Yerk con "
testants should indicate.
A Plea for Tammany.
In response G. "W. Miller, of Albany,
came and was greeted 'with applause.
He hoped the right of free speech would
net be interrupted for a moment by
any man in whose veins Hew a drop
of Democratic bleed. Cheers. The
contestants came here with the same
earnest desire as animated all the
delegates in this hall. (Applause.)
They came with no firebrand, but te pre
sent an olive branch, with a view te victo
rious success. A reference te the name of
Kelly was greeted with applause and a
storm of hisses, which were renewed when
the speaker declared that he had no supe
rior in integrity and devotion te Democrat
ic principles and party. He proceeded te
argue the importance of giving Tammany
some representation in this body, as a
means of securing unity and success. Only
fifteen of the contestants are from New
Yerk city, and the remainder of them re
presented ever 40,000 Democrats, scattered
all ever the state, and numbering at least
one-fifth of the Democratic vote in said
state. Speaking for the contestants from
the rural districts, he said they intended te
support whoever should be made the can
didate of the convention. They were all
anxious only for Ruch proceeding here as
shall tend best te promote and insure a
great triumph applause ; but deprive
the rank and file of their leaders, and like
seldiers in the field, there was danger that
they would be demoralized and skulk away
from the fight. But if the convention
would observe the Democratic precedents
and give the contestants here an oppor
tunity te participate in its proceedings he
could assure them that the Democrats
would carry the state of New Yerk. Ap
plause. He proceeded te urge that the
sitting delegates here were the represen
tatives of machine politics, against which
public sentiment was protesting in the
Democratic as well as the Republican party
Unless some compromise of this question
should be made here, it would be impossi
ble te prevent the running of two Demo
cratic electoral tickets in New Yerk, aud
this would lead te defeat. He and his
friends could net control this result, try as
they might, unless this convention should
give them the twenty scats recommended
by the minority report. Give them these
aud they could draw out and make effec
tive the magnificent victory next autumn.
Amasa J. Parker, announced by the
chairman as " a sterling old Democrat,"
followed for the contestants. He said the
contestants represented the Democracy of
the rural districts at least one hundred
and fifty thousand of the Democrats of
that state who demand te be heard here.
He came in the spirit of harmony with a
great desire that the wisdom and patriot
ism of this body should unite the party
and redeem the national government. He
aud his associates from the rural districts
should support whatever ticket should be
named here. Applause. He voted for
Gov. Robinson. Applause.
A speech similar in tenor te the above
was made by ex-Gov. Hubbard, of Texas,
while the claims of the sitting or "regular"
delegation were presented by Messrs. Fel
lows and Pcckhamef New Yerk.
The majority report was adopted by a
vote of 457 te 205, the sitting New Yerk

lect a man who would insure victory te the
party. Judge Field's name elicited a geed
