Hen. Janifxi 1L Hepkins, were among the
acttve politician of the atate who had charge
of his interests.
Thore was no great substance In the
movement for McCermlck. At ene tlme It
looked as if the elementa or strength in the
northwestern part of the state thai are sii sii

be welded togelherluto the basis of a very for fer for

Hut that Kentleman, (mmedlately upon his
arrival In Uarrlsburg, put a atop te all such
use of bU naine ; and the very considerable
number of delegates who had cherished
the idea that It might be wlse te find a third
man nettled dewu te tbe conviction that the
line would be drawn botween Mack and
Wallaee and they ranged themaelvea en ene
alde or the ether. The Idea of u third candl
d a te was discountenanced by many of the
mom sincere frlenda of Mr. Wallace, whose
second cholce was lllack ; and who wanted

ItAllMONY ON OROANlATION.
All the prolluilnarlen or the centest were
amicably arranged In advance. The rrleuda
et Mr. Wallace auggested Klllett rer chair
man, and he waH entirely acceptable te the
lllack forces. The request or the Cumber
land Valley representatives ler ex-Judge
Herman was readily cnterUined by lieth
aides, although he came Instructed for lllack
and heartily bis supporter. The eminence
and fltnessef both men avoided all dlcuaslen
upon the subject et organization, and nelther
alde felt such confidence In lis certalii
strength as te Invite a preliminary test el It.
It was also gonerally agreed that tbe oou eou oeu
entlon should take a rocess after the morn,
leg session, and upon reassembling remalu
in session until a candidate for governor was
settled, all ethor nominations being suberdl
nated te the head et the ticket
The roll call showed every seat in the con cen con
ventien rilled ; every district had its full
quota en hand, with a dozen contesta, uoue
of them very bltter nor of any great insigni
ficance In their merlui or the flual determi
nation of thorn. The conceurso of spectators
was the largest seen at any state convention
of either party slnce 18,-ti, and It was an oar ear
uest body of men.
Judge Herman made an excel lout Impres
sion as the presiding elUcer. Hli tuauner
was dollberato and dlgnlBed; his speech
vigorous, but gracerul aud easy, aud his nil
iugsralr. In the courRe or a short address
taking the chair, he said :
"The Democratle party has always been the

The Altcruoeu hmsIeii.
Meanlluie the eveut of the day was the
sending for Mr. Wallace by his friends, his
quick trip by special train te Uarrlsburg, bis
arrival, the enthusiasm created by it, bis
warm reception et numereus frluuda and
admirers at his rooms, and the mere or less
panicky feeling of Black'a rrlends ever the
personal canvass Inte which his cblet rival
tad new prepared te threw himself, The
wires were kept het with dispatches te "Yerk
for lllack te hurry te Harrlaburg, but he
uniformly answered as from the beginning,
that no contingency would ohanae bis deter
mination net te go. The aoquel proved that
ht was wlae.
The rocess hours were occupied with active
canvassing. The credentials committee had
a long session and finally decided In favor or
the lleamlah (Wallace) Intores'.s In l.scka
wanna, and thoJeaephs(iUck)caua4ilii I'hllii

acquiesced In. The ptatlerm committee had
no great trouble. The liquor and toinpnrance

tlen, and the most arilent anti-monopolist
could ask for nothing mero than an emphatic
pledge te de what the itopublleHti slate con
vention distinctly declined te premise the
appropriate legislation necessary te execute
the eonstltutlenal regulation nrcarrjlng cor
porations. The credentials committee was a llltle
slew, and the Wallace men, who tell conll cenll conll
(teut they were gaining slid had mero te
gain by delay, were anxious for another re re ro
eoss. They could net reasonably ak ever
halt an hour, and all the tllllluullles or op ep
iKMlng this preposition were adroitly met by
the lllack men with a call or the ayes and
nees that occupied the half hour.
The nomination of Klllett for permanent
chairman was well rocelved.aud floergo Jles
and Oeu. Gollrelh showed film te the chair.
His terse and vigorous address was choered te
the echo, and the heart of the convent mi
was reached.as by no ene else during llie
proceedings, when he referred te the ele
torairrainleris7rt. He ssld the Democratle
iiatty had rer twenty-live years of adversity
held Its organization. In lSiillt had become
se strong that It elocted In that jear the
greatent slatesiiian of his ags te the presi
dency, Maniuel J. Tllilen. It was cheated et
Its rlgiibs but In the tulluess of time another
Democrat was elected, anil no power en
earth could hae taken the well-esrned
frulbt or Its victory from the Democracy.
This last Democratic triumph had coiue te
stay. In lsJ the Democratic party placed a
pure, clean man en the gubernatorial tlcket,
aud he was triumphantly elocted. When
lioverner I'rtttlsen turns evor the elllce he
will turn It evor te n Democratle suoctwser.
The tlcket of the Hepubllcan party nomi
nated In 1S;2 was almost the aame as It Is
new, anil at that tlme a reputable iortlen of
the Republican parly rnlwlled en account of
the misdeeds et the parly, and there Is no
roiseu why, If you act well jour part, the
Hime result will net happen again.

The credentials commltteo seen appealed
aud, Its report being promptly adopted, the
convention was resdy and called for the
nominating speeches. Hjiver aud Mulsh, who
wero te de the Jeb, each desired te wait for
the ethor, and for a tlme nobody arose. The
chairman was In a ilileuina. Was nobody

Sir, It Is llttlng that the county or his birth,
proud of her son, should present the name
new um my lips in the nomecracy or the
commonwealth ler the crowning honor or
the convention, a rennsylvanlan and a Dem
ocrat by birth, walking In his youth the
thorny read or poverty, with ail ancestry
whose only legacy was the lustre or an hon
est llfe and a sialnlens name. I present the
son or Huntingdon, the man of Clearfield,
the hepe ler the Democracy, William A.
Wallace, ler governor of the state. Shall I
say who he Is, or will the people se Inquire T
In 16ffii he was elected te the Senate trein u
district composed of the counties et Cam
btla, Cleartleld and lllalr, then represented
by a Republican, and his election gave te the
Democratic party the ene majority en joint
lisllet lu the legislature, which secured the
eluctleu of Charles li. lluckalew us senator or
Pennsylvania te the I tilted States Senate.
He remained lu the Senate from January,
lb03, until March, ls75, when tbe gratitude or
his party lilted him from senator or the state
te that of senator or the United States, where
he served from 1S75 until ItiSl. In the Sen
ate el the I'lilted States he was found in front
with the best mind and thought or that body,
ever mindful et the Interests of his native
sute and ever grateful te the men who had
aided him lu hi struggle te a higher life.
He was recognized by lrloed and roe as
one of the master minds in that body.
In tbe blghest councils of tbe party be
was made presldent of the caucus of Demo
cratic senators, and when the uevv constitu
tion et the Blate was adopted the work l Ids
hand vva-i seen In ttie preparation, advocacy
and pasasge of important legislation te carry
Its previsions. The great corporation law et
the state, putting lutoetlectlvo force the spirit
ami passed largely by the matchless ability
el Senater Wallace, and lu the struggle be
tween tabor and capital he had the honor te
introduce the tlrst arbitration bill ever
coined in any legislative body In America ;
a great triumph of peace and civiliza
tion evor wrong or the ferce of
money and pewer. Thore are many ether
acta which the lavvyers et this body will
rocegnlzo without referonce as te the product
of his mind, aud whose passage is due te his
uuseHlsh zeal and untiring etlerta. He was
llirice the nominee- et his party for the United
StateH Senate. In Is7i! he was the chairman
of the delegation from this state te the
national convention ut llaltimore; in 187ti at
St. Loul. and In 1SSI ene or the delegates-at-large
at Chicago. Aud Just .here 1 may be
lurdened in saying that at Allentewn

the late Presldent James A. GarUeld. "Yeung
Chauncey studled law with his father, aud In

he often expressed it, " the lees did net ceme

Literary work was mero suitable te bis tastes,
and Mr. lllack began as n correspondent
ter several of tbe dally uowspapers.
Fer six or seven years he was a regu
