NOMINATION OF COL. BEN. L

J bn H. trmnt f Jha, far Mem-
The Republican congressional conven
tion for this, Eighteenth Congressional
district, was held in the court house, In
this city yesterday.
Though the attendance wai large, and
the counties, with one or two exceptions,
were represented by full delegations, the
proceedings were conducted in a very
quiet manner. There was very little spirit
or enthusiasm manifested at any stage of
Aspirant for congressional honors to
tlic u amber ol a half dozen or more,
with a brigade ol "dark horses," the
'great unknowns" in the rear, were to be
seen flitting here and there and every
where through the crowd of delegates
shaking hands, and putting In a few
words wherever, it was thought they
would ''do the most good." Jonathan
C. Willis had a good force of workers on
hand and they rendered excellent service
for their champion, but as the sequel will
show they were destined to suffer an In
glorious defeat, a fact which gave Mr.
Willis' opponents in this city and from
abroad unutterable satisfaction. Frick,
Patks nnd lkilrich all had their forces
well in hand, but not enough ol them.
Col. Ben. L. Wiley, went into the con
vention with only the vote of his own
county, (Jackson) pledged to him, and
even up to the fourth ballot his chances
were no: supposed to amount to any
thing. But on the fifth ballot t, when J
c. Willis' name was withdrawn from the
lit ot candidates, Wiley's chances iui.
proved with each succeeding vote, and It
soon became apparant that the contest
was lietweon Wiley aud Capt. Parks ol
Perry county. Frick's highest vote was
21, and Detrich never got above that
While the proceeding of the conven.
t ion were harmonious, it was the most
unenthusiastic and spiritless convention
ever held in Cairo. The speeches, with
the exception of that of Hon. M. J. In
score of Union county, who presented
Mr. Frick's name to the convention,
were feeble attempts at waiving the bloody
shirt, and fell flat upon the convention.
CALLF.P TO ORDER.
At half-past 12 o'clock, the delegates
having all assembled In the court room,
George Mertz, Eq., of Mound City,
chairman of the Republican Congres
sional coTimittee, mounted the judge's
stand and called the convention to order,

chairman. The nomination was confirmed
and Judge Bishop took the stand.

the convention, and said he would not
detain the delegates by making a
speech; this was a time lor work, not lor

retaries. THK BLOODY SHIRT.
Judge Bishop, on taking the chair
thanked the convention for the confi
dence reposed in him. The conven
tion had a great work before it ; the dele,
gates were here to work for the Interests
of the great Republican party the party
that saved the Unioa, and had never been
accused ol treason. The convention
should work in harmony and nominate a
good, true and loyal man a roan in
whom the people have confidence. If
they would de this they would certainly
meet with success in November.
Atthe conclusion of Judge Bishop'
remarks, the committee on
RKSOI t'TIONS '
reported as follows : '
RfnoUfti, That we heartily endorse the
action of the national convention at Cin
cinnati, its platform and Its principles.
Tnat we concur in ton selection ot tue
Hon. Rutherford B. Hayes and Wm.
A. Wheeler as the great standard bearers
of the Republican party.
That we pledge our earnest support to
both the State ami national tickets, ana
the nominees of this convention.
At the mention ol Hayes and Wheeler'a
names, an attempt to get up a cheer was
made, but the effort was a , sad failure
the convention wouldn't enthuse. ' There
was no enthusiasm in the delegates.
All other business having been disposed
of, Mr. Mertz of Jackson county, moved
that the convention proceed to the se
lection of a candidate for congress, to bo
voted for at the November election. The
motion was agreed to; and it was ordered
that the secretary call the counties la
alphabetical order. '
When Alexander county was called,
Mr. Chas. Lame nominated J. C. Willis.

would make an A No. I camp meeting

claims ot Jackson county's ''favorite

From the first to the fifth ballot there
was no unusual excitement, and
there was very little stir among
the delegations. It was known
that three or four ballots would
have to be taken before the "favorite
son" business would begin to play out.
On the fifth ballot, however, It was evi
dent that the time for a general breaking
up ol the delegations had arrived, and
then the tug of war began.
