Chicago, June 25. At three minutes
past II o'clock the convention was called
to order by Chairman Estee wno was again
in good condition. 'The proceedings were
opened with prayer by the Rev. Arthur
Edwards, of Chicago.
Mr. Houston, of Virginia, rose and said
he desired to offer a resolution regulating
the order of balloting in the convention
which would prohibit the casting of any
vote for any candidate who had not been
regularly put in nomination before the
convention. The chair ruled that this
could not be done as nothing was in order
Mr. Boutelle, of Maine, arose to the ac
tion of privilege.
Mr. Hayniond, of California, made the
point of order that nothing was in order
except balloting. If there were any
speeches to be made he wanted to make
one for Blaine, applause.
The chair said that he understood that
the gentleman from Maine desired to make
a privileged a nnouncement and he was
given the floor.
He mounted the platform and said: "I
find myself somewhat pmbarrassed in be
ing tin own even into a semblance of an
tagonism to the representative of the dele
gation from the Pacific coast who have
come here manifesting such a devotion to
a chieftain whose banner I Have followed
vith pride and affection thesa many years.
Applause. I would like, were the occa
sion appropriate and did I feel it proper in
view of the courtesy to which I am in
debted for an appearance heie at all, to
preface the announcement I am about to
make by some explanatory remarks. I
shall not attempt to do so. No one in this
convention, no one in this magnificent
auditorium has any doubt as to where the
affection, the devotion and the allegiance
of the Republicans of Maine has been and
always will be. Applause, No delegate
here will doubt the regret with which I
dischaige the duty imposed -upon me, but,
Mr. president and gentlemen of the con
ention, I am under a constraint which I
do not feel at liberty to ignore, and with
out attempting to give constructions or
interpretations of my own to the language
of one greater than myself, by far, I dis
charge my 'humble duty as tine rppvcenta-
tive of the Maine delegation by reading to
you without preface or comment the fol
lowing dispatches which I have received.
Edin'HCRGH, June 24.
Boutelle and M-inlcv, Chiciyo, 111.
Earnestly request all friends to respect
my Paris letter, (signed)
JAS. G. T3LA.DJE.
"That dispatch was received last night,"
explained Boutelle. "Tuis morning I re
ceived the following:
At this point the gulleiies broke out into
an uproar which was, however, promptly
checked by the. chairman who warned tno
the audience that unless it preserved bet
ter order strict measures to enforce it
would be resorted to.
Mr. Boutelle continuing said:
"I read to the convention for its infor
tion as I have received them these dis
patches." The second was dated today and said: "I
think 1 have the right to ask my friends
to respect my wishes and refrain fiom vot
ing for me. Please make this and former
dispatches public. (Signed)
Jas. G. Blaine."
After the applause and confusion which
followed Boutelle's announcement had
died away the convention proceeded to
the sixth ballot. Little excite
nieut was occasioned by the
the roll call outside of the usual murmurs
of applause when California again cast her
te lor Blaine, till the vote was called,
and Governor Foraker announced 40 otes
Then a delegate arose and challenged the
correctness of the announcement.
The chair demanded tne name of the del
egate and there being some delay occa
sioned by the efforts of Govern jr Foraker
and others of the delegation to pursuade
the celleague to withdraw the challenge,
tJie chair stated that unless the name was
git en the announcement would stand. J.
B. Lucky arose and announced his name
and insisted upon the poll.
The result of the poll was 45 votes for
Sherman and 1 ote for Harrison, winch
was cast by Air. Luckey himself. The re
sult of the ballot was as follows:

Only a slight vote stood by Sherman in
Pennsylvania and after that state vote the
Harrison movement became a landslide.
The ballot resulted as follows:
Harrison .V.V.V.V llSH
McKinley .VV.V.V.""""" 4
The result was received with a ourst of
appiause and the great, audience arose to
its feet and shouted until it was harse.
S?ev 1 the cfficers of the convention
climbed on the chairman's desk and waved
a banner bearing the portrait of Harrison.
The ladies in the galleries waved their
handkerchiefs and their parasols. Hats
were thrown up and a scene of enthusiasm
followed. Cries of "He's all right" were
u"1 ,m tbe din- Anally with three
cheers for Harrison the convention became
quiet onough to hear the official announce
ment of the result.
Governor Foraker then took the platform
amid enthusiastic cheers and said:
uentiemen of the convention The dele
gates from Ohio came here all Sherman
men. They are now all Harrison men.
Applause. It is easier for us to be so
when we remember that General Harrison
had the good sense to be born in Ohio.
Laughter. I am directed bv the unani

That the interest in tho convention had
almost entirely died away with the presi
dential nomination today, was manifested
this evening by the array of empty seats
in the galleries, which previously have
presented an attractive picture of hand
some toilets and knlldp!pnnir. inlnrs Tim
members of tho various delegations were
early in their places, evidently anxious to
complete their business and return to their
homes. The convention reassembled at
ten minutes past G and proceeded to tho
regular order, the presentation of names
for the rice-presidential nomination.
Mr. Griggs, of New Jersey, presented the
name of William Walter Phelps. He
claimed that New Jersey was as much a
necessary state as was Indiana. By tho
action of the convention on this afternoon
the fifteen electoral votes of Indiana had
been added to the votes of the surely Re-
puuucan states, ann u to these were added
the votes of New Jersey assured tho elec
tion of the Republican ticket William
u alter Phelps was not in favor of a policy
which would take the roof off the laboring
man, but in favor of that system which
proposed to put a roof over the latter's
head and make him the owner of his own.
W ith tho nomination of Mr. Phelps the
Republicans were assured the electoral
Tote of New Jersey, and probably
those of New York and Connecticut. The
ticket for New Jersey was Harrison and
Phelps, Harrison against Cleveland, New
lork's fetish of the Democracy; against
Ihurman, the reminiscence of dead polit
ical heresies, would be placed Phelps, tho
live, aggressive man of today, and against
the old bandana would bo placed the starry
flag of America. Applause,
Air. Gibson, of Ohio, in seconding the
nomination of Air. Phelps, said that ho
was the survivor of eleven political cam
paigns and was wild for the twelfth. Ap
