When It was apparent tbat the motion te

the chairman, whoae voice Is still weak,
directed the secretary te state tbat tbe

Cuicaue, June 23. Around tbe botels
this morning it Is perslatently rumored
tbat a final communication has been rc rc rc
oelvod from Mr, Blrlne and at tbe con
venlng of the convention this morning
unanimous consent for Ha presentation
will be asked. Hut this is Just as persist
ently denied by B. F. Jenes arm Stephen

couch their denial In tlie werds: "I
have absolutely recelved nothing from
Mr. Blalne" limy bu significant
There Is a geed deal of talk concerning
tbe secret Blalne conference last night and
tbla morning at tbe Orand i'acltl-, In which
some sixty delcgates, representing all tbe
B'.ales exeeptlng Nebraska, Jewe, Kansas,
North Carolina, Seuth Carolina and Missis
sippi wero tbe participant?. All et tbem
that have been seen agree that altbeugb no
letter or dispatch from Mr. lllalne was pre.
scnted, it was nevertheless determined te
inake a stand for bis nomination regard lets
of bis own wishes In tbe mailer. A geed
many of tbe delegates made lengthy
speeches la which It was oentondod
that Mr. Blaine, being se far away,
did net cleat ly understind the sit
uation when his lotters wero written,
tbat the platlerm which had Leen adopted
was ene upon which he could stand and tbat
there was no doubt but that It nominated
he would obey the call. Ham Fessenden
announced tbat wben the proper time came
Maine would be ready with her supjiert
F. L. Burden said tbe same for Massachu
setts, Wilsen, of Kentucky, and ex-Clever,
nor Warmetb, of Louisiana, pledged thelr
delegations antl Logen II. Heets, of Ar
kansas, made an earnest address In favor
et going ahead vltbeut watting for any
word from the leader across the sea. After
about everybody present had added some
thing te tbe dlscusblen It was formally pro
posed tbat a committee should be appointed
totake charge et Blaine's interests and place
htm in nomination, niter the fourth
ballet te-day. But this was opposed
by Heets, who did net want any
speelal time fixed for springing tbe canal
date's name, and as a geed many ethers
agreed with blm, It was declded te simply
v empower the nommlttee te take the matter
la band, determine Blaine's actual
strength aud report at a meeting at 10
o'clock this morning. When the con
ference adjourned at 2 o'clock this commit
tee, which la composed of Creed Uaymend,
Cel. Samuel Fesaenden, Pewell Clay Clay
eon, F. L. Burden (Mass.) Charles
Emery Smith ( Pa. ) and General
Marcy (Tent).) appointed canvassers te
poll each delegation and get the name of
every Blaine supporter. They went about
their work with a will, and a great many
delegates were pulled out of their beds te
answer the interrogatories. At this writ
ing thelr labors have net been concluded.
The California contingent Is be confident
tbat Blatne will be nominated te-day that
it has ordered two hundred gallons et the
latest and mest fashionable brand of cham
pagne. They have also bought a hundred
bright tin cups from a wholesale hardware
store. That is taken te mean that wben
the Jollification cemes no faucels will be
used. Tbey will simply knock In tbe bead
of tbe barrel aud let everybedy dip.
At 9 o'clock the Harrison, Alger, Allisen
nd Qresbam leaders were holding separate
ceherences. The report around the bead
quarters et each delegation Is that the word
has gene out te stick.
Olarksen when asked what will be done
this morning In tbe convention replied :
'Just what we were doing when we left
eB en Saturday."
SllKFlMAN'H SUrrOUTERS CONFIDENT,
Sherman's followers are In exuberant
spirits and are going around elalming tbe
nomination of tbeir man en the second
ballotte-day. They claim thatir New Yerk
adheres te Its premise te give him a show
after It drops Harrison and they get tbe
support that has been privately pledged
from Iowa, Pennsylvania and ether states
they will make such a showing as will con
vince the antl Sherman element that It is
useless any longer te kick against tbe
prick. They also profess te be much
encouraged by tbe action et tbe Southern
delegates In deciding te stand firm te Sher
man. The Harrison tneu are talking In
precisely tbe. stme vein and make much
of the fact that considerable betting en a
basis el four te ene against Ulalne's nomi
nation Is being done.
Mr. Elklns, asked In tegard te the lllalte
conference, said : " I want what 1 say te
go te the country as the unqnalllled senti
ment of the leading friends of Mr. Blaine.
There has been much misunderstanding In
tbe matter, both by tbe publle and these
who represent tbe publle In this conven
tion. Mr. Blaine Is net a candidate before

consent of at least four of the leading can

THS SIXTH DAY.
IJUpatebes Frem mains Bead le the Cuu-
v.utlen by Mr. Moetelle RtseJls
el The Halletlng,
Convention Halt., CnioAae, June 25.
10:30 a m. The throng outside tbe audi
torium was net as dense tbla morning as
was tbe case at every session of the conven
tion last week. ThU is explained by tbe
feet that nearly all of the polltlefl clubs and
legions and the great mass et goneral visi
tors disappointed by the protracted length
of the convention and despairing of having
an opportunity seen te assist in the ratifies ratifies
tlen of the successful nominee, had turned
tbelr feces homeward en masse after the
adjournment en Saturday altorneon. Still,
what under ether circumstances would be
regarded as an Imposing crowd besieged
the doers of the building from an early
hour and from the time that the gatekeepera
began thelr duties at half paBt nine there
was a continuous uproar te tbe upper parts
ei tne house.
An hour later very few of the nine thou
sand seats allotted te the outside publle
were empty. The -delegates, tee, en tbe
whole were remarkably early lu arriving.
Thirty of the New Yerk, nearly all of tbe
Virginians and many Southern, Minnesota,
Michigan and Ohie contingents were In
their seats at half-past ten o'elock, although
the time for reassembling waa hair an henr
later. Very little enthusiasm was mani
fested and the leading lights of tbe gather
ing strolled In one after another without
being accorded a single demonstration.
Inside aa outside the atmosphere waa
close and sultry and there were Indications
or a thunderstorm, a fact which caused an
enthuslastle Blalne man te suggest that tbe
elements were preparing te give the auo aue auo
eesstul candidate a baptism et thunder and
lightning,
Mr. Manley, of Maine, remarked te a
United Pi ess reporter this morning tbat
Blalne would accept only a unanimous
nomination, which at present seemed Im
possible and tbat he hoped there would be
no mere voting for Blaine unless he weie
formally pnt In nomination.
Chairman Kstee said as he passes the
United Press stand: "Beys, we are going
te make u president fur you te-day cure."
At 11 o'elock Chairman Kstee accom
panied by Kev. Dr. Edmonds, editor of the
Northwestern Christian Advocate, who
was te open tbe sixth day of the convention
with prayer, made their appearance. Net
a dozen delegates were absent when the
chair, at 11:05, brought down his gavel upon
the desk nnd announces tbat tbe conven
tion would come te order.
After prayer the band strikes up "Nearer
My Ued te Thee." Mr. Uuosten (Va.)
eilered a resolution that no vete should be
counted which waa cast for any one who
ha 1 net been regularly placed in nomina
tion. Tbe resolution waa doelnred le be
out et erder.
Mr. Boutelle (Maine) tben took tbe plat
form and proceeded te talk about Mr.
Blaine's attitude toward tbe convention.
He said tbat without attempting te glve any
construction te tbe language employed,
will read aome dispatches from Mr. Blaine,
as follews:
KniNiiunci, June 21 Boutelle and Man
ley. Earnestly request all friends te re
spect my Paris letter. Br.MNK.
EuiNiiune, Jnne 25 It jutelle and Man
ley. Malno delegation, Chicago. I think I
have a right te ask my friends te respect
my wishes and refrain from voting for me.
Please make this and former dlspateh pub pub
leo promptly. J. U. Blaine.
Tbe convontien then proceeded te call tbe
roll of states for the sixth ballet, which re

The nomination of Harrison was received
with considerable enthusiasm. Delegates
roae en masse and the oheerlng waa loud
and long. .
The band also played patrlotle alrr.
HOW TIIK NOMINATION WAS RECEIVED.
The roll call demonstrated tbe accuracy
of the vote as already given and Governer
Feraker moved tbat the convention make
Harrison's nomination unanimous. He
eald tbat the delegation from Ohie, who
were all Sherman men, wculd go away
from this convention all Harrison men.
They could de se, he aatd, with perfect
consistency because they all knew tbat
Harrison waa born in Ohie. (Great ap
plause. )
Mr. Uerr, of Michigan, said he oame here
hcplng tbat one el Michigan's sons would
be obesen as tbe standard bearer of the
Republican party, but they had net suc
ceeded In tbe desire, and new II It were
asked hew tbe Mlehlgan delegation would
stand by Harrison he would reply by
pointing out tbe way In which they had
steed by Alger. He accepted tbe result
and he hoped that all the delegations would
return te their homes believing that the
nomination whleh bad been made had been
Indicated by Frovldenco from the start.
They bad come here be said, te place a
aoldler at tbe head of the ticket and In tbat
they bad snoeeoded.
Senater Farwell promlsed that Illinois
would give her electoral vote te Harrison
and be also seconded lite motion of Gover Gover
eor Feraker te make Harrison's nomination
unanimous.
Mr. Depewsald that as the only presiden
tial candidate In the convention he also sec
onded tbe motion. He thought wben he
came bore Ohie would carry oil the honors
because that state always gained tbe day.
The dolegates would go away w ttheut heart
burnings and full of entbuslasm.
General Hastings said he had been In
structed by the Pennsylvania delegation te
congratulate tbe conviction en tbe selection
It had made. Pennsylvania had a hundred
thousand majority for any Republican can
dldate and Harrison would get It all.
Qen. Hendersen, of Iewp, said he wna
full or sorrow net bocause the man or his
choice had been beaten, bnt because tbe
convontien bad nominated a man against
whom the Democratic party couldn't utter
one truthful word. Ne candid ate could have
been round who could have claimed a
warmer place In tbe hearts et tbe Amorlean
people. Ne words of calumny could be
uttered against General Harrison's charac
ter and what would the qullldrlvera of the
Democratic party de ? Iowa had promptly
withdrawn lis candidate te with equal
promptness It responded te the call of the
oenVontlon when the tide turned in the
direction et the candidate who bad been ae
enthusiastically named.
Mr. Boutwell, et Malno, said tbat bla
delegation bad been placed In a dellcate
and embarrassing position. Tbey oame
Impressed with the feeling tbat tbere
might be attributed te tha vete et
Maine, a slgnlflcanoe apart from nu.
rnerlcat strength and they had on en on
deavered te avoid this. Hew well they
bad done this the convontien was tbe beat
Jndge. He pledged the hearty support of
the East te the nominee, ene tbat wenld
call bark the refraln wben another Harrison
was In tbe field: "Have you heard the news
from Maine 7" In tbe forefront et the battle
the white plume would be found gleaming
as It always had. been (Qreat applause)
Creed Uaymend, of California, said he
waa pleased. Davis, of Mlnnesets, sec
onded the motion te make tbe nomination
unanimous. A dispatch was real from
General Alger thauklng tbe convention for
its support and pledglng support In behalf
of Michigan.
Wise and Mahene also speke and Lynch,
of Mlsslppi, supported tbe motion te make
the nomination unanimous.

"Hew la It the Intklmciknckii Is
always ahead In Ita telegraphte reports et
the Chicago convention 7" Is a query that
has agitated the mlnda of many of Lancas
ter's cltltens.
It may be well te state that, nrlmarllr.
the Intkllieknckh Is a subscriber te the
United Press, an organization that baa a
complete aystera et wires, which are tapped
IntbelNTnLMnuNCEReftlee. The United
Press has a dlroet wire Inte the convention
hall, and every move made by tbat body la
recorded thousands of miles away instan
taneously. Ten secenda after a ballet la
taken the result is in Lancaster and ether
large cltlec a vast amount of lime la aaved
by the dlroet system. Te relay, or repeat a
system of rejwrta, involves a less of time
that means mere than the aurfsce views
Indicate Thus Is happena that the United
Pres?, having a large corps of writers In the
hall, assisted by the meat rapid telegraphers
In the country, Is onabled te sorve Its sub
scribers with tbe- nevts with aa much dis
patch as the modern detective camera re
flects the rcenes against which It Is directed.
During the balloting last week the audi-
enoe befere tbe Inteluokneku bulletin
beard was large enough te partially block
the street. With pencil and paper In hand
scores of Republican polltlelana eagerly re
corded the results posted the mement after
the wires brought them. On Friday night
the iNTRLT.ieKNOKn bulletined tbenewa
of tbe convention taking receaa until Satur.
day morning at 10 o'elock, At the ether
nowspaper nlllecB tbere were meagre
crowds. When the anxious der.en In front
et the J.'xamxncr wero told of the news via
the iNTsr.LinKNenn they did net believe
It, and waited fifteen minutes te soe the
same bulletin put up befere tbem,
The foliewlug Is taken from the Wash
ington Critic, which gees te show hew the
servlce la appreciated :
" The bulletin servlce of tbe United Press
from the convontien hall has been for tbe
past thrce dajs both instantaneous and ex-
uaustivp. une second after the develop-
uiuui i a ;mu uaner, or we total or the
ballets or all tbe states, or any Ineldent of
Interest In tbe convention hall, tbe Infor
mation was In the editorial rooms el the
Cntic. United Pr ess operators here copied
the Information from the special system of
wires at several convenient points In the
corridors surrounding tbe hall et the repre
sentatives and the first Information from
Chicago reaohed tbe Republican and Dem
ocratic numbers by the alert messenger
boys, who rushed In with tbe bits of white
paper bearing tbe legend et The United
Press.' "
The I'lrst te Anneucca IL
The first le pest the nowset Harrison's
nomination In thlselty, was tbe Intkli.j
aiiNOKR, and wben tha bulletin announc
ing the ohelco of tbe eindidst', was
plaecd en tlie baard, the grett
crowd or Hopublleana that strotched hair
way across Seuth Queen Btroet let out a low
cheers. Geergo Bewman sniiled In bread
style as be rccalled bow many bets he had
wen by taking the field against Blaine, and
thore woreothoiH wlie looked unhappy at
the thought that thelr candidate had bad
roeord en the labor question In California,
and bad n Know-Nethlng oareer that
would be disastrous In New Yerk.
Whlle tbore was disappointment en
many faces becauae Blalne was net cbosen,
yet thore was a Harrison sentiment In this
town, due probably te the fact that Dele Delo Dole
gates Hhroder and Saldomrldge supported
him from the soeoml ballet.
But n row minutes after tbe result had
been announced Joreph Biggs, of the New
JCra oilke, swung the stars and stripes from
the Era building. Then the biggest part
of tbe crowd dlspcrsed, but little Interest
being apparently shown In the result for
Vlee president.
