Tho report was in favor of seating tha Hlg

tne report read by tbo secretary recotnmenaea
that tho roll of delegates and alternates of the

tories as prepared by the national committee
for tbo temporary organization be,approtcd as
the permanent roll of this convention.
The minority report was signed by 19 mem
bors ot the conmiktoe. In presenting it Mr.
Hepburn assorted that nono pt the contest
ants, except those from Delaware and Texas
bad bad any bearing before tho committee qn
credentials and in those two cases not
one word of the testimony had been
read and no member ol the convention
knew what the merits of the case wore. More
than ICO republicans claipiiAgjto bo delegates,
with their credentials, were now asking to be
beard In order that tho merits of their easel
mlgbt be properly ascertained. It was a bad
precedent, bo declared, to permit the tatlonal
commlttco to pass final Judgment on the elec
tion sad qualification of delegates
It was a dangerout cxetoie of power, anS
that should not be submitted '.a Tho'rclnor
ity therefore recommended that the delegation
from Delaware, headed by Addicks. ind, the
delegates from Texas, headed by Mr. Cur.ey,
be seated, and that as to all the othercon
tested election cases, tbey be recommitted tc
the committee on credential! with lns(ruc
to perform Its duty.
Mr Fort,.cbarman ot the committee, was
recognized, and. fnqved the previous Question.

steamship r.aurada has es
caped the lire of hostile Spanish gun
boats, and is now on her way up the
river to this city, where she will arrive
Wednesday morning. The last time
the Laurada was reported, she was
skirting the shores of the island o. Ja
maica, within the three-mile limit, and.
a Spanish gunboat was following her,
and waiting the moment she should
get out of English water!-, to open fire
on her. The Laurada undoubtedly
proved too fast for the Spaniard, and
left him behind before she was com
