Washington, November 23. Min
neapolis won on tho seventh ballot
with twenty-nine votes, New York
having three and Cincinnati fifteen.
The highest number reached by San
Francisco was eight, though its full
.strength was ten. The States and
Tcrritotles oting vtllh It were Louis
iana, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Colora
do, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Missouri,
and Oregon. Early iu the balloting
Mr. de Young saw that the combina
tion iu favor of Cincinnati, made by
lather unfair means, was growing
stronger, and at tho end of the sixtli
ballot he crossed over to Minue'ijiolis.
llio proposition was met favorably,
and then Mr. do Young formally with
draw San Francisco, whose oto had
dwindled down to three. "What does
that nv-an?'1 shouted one suspicious
Eastern committeeman. "It means
Minneapolis," he answered, and when
his turn came he cast a Minneapolis
ballot Ixjing followed by General
llamill of Colorado and others who
had struck manfully to California.
Of twenty-six national conventions
of the two leuling parties held iu fifty
years twehu were iu the vtest, two
being in St. Louis, three in Cincinnati
and seven iu Chicago. Of those in tho
East Baltimore had nine. Philadelphia
three, Hartisburg and New York one
each, and one met at Charleston, ad
journing to Baltimore, which city has
been honored with more national con
ventions than Chicago, although no
convention has been held there for
nearly twenty yeais. The choice of
Baltimore by the Republicans in 18CI
was duo somewhat to tho fact that
Lincoln's rcnomiuatioii was assured in
advance, and he did not need local
western inlluenccs to achieve success.
Probably the same l eaon gave Phila-
rle!rti'iv$l-7v.nsrfTW l.m.U, svlfii.
Grant was renominated, nut fiuee
Fremont was nominated at Philadel
phia iu 1850, with the exceptions al
ready noted, the Republicans have
held their conventions at tfe west.
The national conventions of both
parties have been held iu the past
thirty-live y ears at thu following places:
Chicago . .
C'har't'n and Hallo
. Cle eland
The Democrats have shown that is
resistible tendency to follow Republi
can example a long way after in the
choice of places for national conven
tions as In many other things. After
tho Republicans had made a winning
ticket in Chicago in I860 the Demo
crats chose that city as the place for
their next convention, nd when the
Republicans chose Cincinnati in 187G
and Chicago iu 1880f:witli .similar
success, the Democrats allowed after
them in 1880 and 1881 respectively.
Philadelphia lias been shunned by
the Democracy for a qti.it ter of a cen
tury beeauso it has been the Gibraltar
of Republicanism, where, as li,irper's
Weekly says, 'vvorklngnieit and peo
ple of moderate means enjoy greater
tomforts, happiness and independence
than in any other American city."
The Democrats never met in nation
al convention in Now York but once,''
and that was when Seymour was nomi
nated in 18G8, tiuil the convention was
held iu Tammany Hall itself.

The return of Messrs. Ashurst, Mc
Clure, Marshall, and Freycr last week
from their extended prospecting tour
in the Grand Canyon at a point north
of this place has awakened new inter

wonderful region. But little prospect

ry ptospectors hole where, tho mineral
diseov crv was made no work has been
done on the claims. While there is
abundance of low grade ores on this
side of the river, the richest ores came
from the ledges on tho north side.
Tho party brought in specimens of
galena ore taken from a ledge, which
averages ten feet in width and is miles
iu length and is fifteen hundred feet,
perpendicular, and the ore carries a
fair percentage of gold and silver; .
A three foot ledge of copper glance
ore was located and assay made from
the samples taken from near the sur
face, go 180 ounces in silver and 30
per cent copper. This claim will be
worked during the winter.
Ledge after ledge of gold and silver
bearing rock were ran across. The
ledges being largo but of low grade or
below 60 ounces. But they can bo
profitably worked with the proper.
Aide from almost endless gold and
silver ledges there exists inexhaustible

The specimens of asbestos brought
in show the deposit to be and exceed

of the finest soap-stone of various col

being largely used for interior decora

also large deposits of copper, and the
Grand Canyon will one day supply the
world with that useful metal.
With the abundance of wealth iu
this wonderful region, it cannot bo
long until a railroad is built down the
Grand Canyon of tho Colorado or from
some point on the Atlantic & Pacific
railroad to either Lee's Ferry or
