CONVENTION THIRD DAT.
Chicago, June 4. Another troublous,
excited day dawn9 on this afflicted city,
racked and torn by political factions. It is
an excellent time for Prince Leopold, who
arrives to-day, to see American politics in
all their ripe and rosy beauty. He stands
a better chance of being left alone now
than at any period he could havr; selected.
There were indications last night that the
fire of the clans was fading in its fury. The
throng3 nt the hotels wero somewhat light
ened, but the drinking, roaring and dis
puting of factions are about the same. The
Grantites claimed a victory in yesterday's
proceedings, but somehow the aspect of the
forces was a little shattered after midnight.
I saw Filley. Fred Grant, McCullagh and
others solacing their souls with liquid re
freshments. I insisted our redoubtable
ex-postmaster should tell me the true in
wardness of the situation after the cveniu"
consultations. His confidence was unbrok
en. "We have got 'em," he said; "we are
bound to win." "How do you predict vie
tory with only 318 votes and a coming re
duction of 20 or more?"
"WAIT AND SEE,"
he said ; "there is more than one way of
killing a cat." I hold the be truth to self
evident, but the puzzling and impaliuL'
question is, Where and which is tho cat?
At the door of the convention I met Gea
Cavendtr. He was perfectly serene, and
had unfailing confidence in the fortunes of
the star of Galena.
And now, at half-past ton, a great tumult
ot applauso arises aud soars and swells uu
til the whole vast edifice trembles. What
does it mean? Have the audience rarn.
nized tho prince? Has the old general
come down from Geleua to take command
of his own army? No, it is the white swan
of Now Y'ork slowly and majestically sail
ing down the aisle.
Begins among tho seats of the Ohio delega
tion aud soon extends throughout the Ijall.
It is Garfield who has walked iu and taken
his seat, and now, at a quarter to eleven, the
president's gavel begins to pouud, and
gradually the great uproar subsides into
comparative silence, when the Rev. Mr.
Little of Chicago offers up a very brief
prayer. He prays God to give the conven
tion a spirit of wisdom, of discretion, of
equity and of patriotism. No sooner had
thisbnet supplication ended than the gen
eralissimo of tho third term forces opeued
an attack upon the enemy's linos
by moving resolution to the dibit
that no person ought to occupy a seat
as a delegate on this floor who will not
pledge himself to support the nominee of
the convention. He hoped that the resolu
tion would bit adopted by unanimous con
sent. Mr. Hale of Mainn and Mr. Brand-
gee of Connecticut spoke iu favor of the
resolution. The pmsident put it to the
house by a viva voce vote and. it was car
ried with but three votes in the negative.
Conkling demanded that the vote be taken
by a call of states. Ho wanted 4 record
made of the names ot those who voted no.
This was an Astute move, because it forced
many of the Dlaino men and others to cat
crow rather evidently. In tho heat of this
florco contest; they have said many hard
things of Grant and of the bosses. They
dared not, however, evince disloyalty to tho
party with tho swift and bitter tongue of
Conkliug ready to nail the discovery. In
fact it seems to mo as if tho nuti-Grant
men have not been very discreet in their
talk of late, and certainly nearly all tho
Union generals anil soldiers In tho conven
tion are for Graut. I fully expect to ice
thli fact utilized for
TUB (1RAKT INTEREST
before many hours. The president put the
question whether the reshould be a call of
itates, and it was 10 ordered with but a few
dissenting rotes, Eyery itato voted aye until
..(-.: OI ' ' '';
''''?' 'Wf ;vi.vf; i'.''"1'-' :,-yw
the state of West Virginia was reached.
when three votes wero recorded in tho neg
ative. This produced a storm of hisses, ?
but the stout West Virginians aatstilh ,
They were determined not to be moved
from their convictions by the tierce mani
festations of a turbulent audience. Mr.
Conkling then resolved to test the strength
and working condition ot the machine by
offering a resolution "that those delegates
who have voted no to the resolution just
passed do not deservo and have forfeited
their votes in this convention." This gave .
room for tho display of considerable pa
slonate spread-eaglo oratory of the Radical
The committee on rules and order were
then required to read their report. This
was done frora tho platform by Garfleld.tue
chairman, who said the report was
NOT CI1 FOB DISCUSSION
And adoption until after the committee on
credentials had reported. The rules re
ported are substantially tho same as those
which have always applied to such con
ventions. Only two changes of importance
were made, one limiting speeches to fire
minutes for nominations of candidates.
The other change is one specifically abro- ' ,
gating the unit rule and establishing the
principle of district representation, which ,
meaus that each delegato may Vote accord
ing to his individual preferences. The ro- '
port was only read for information. It con
tained a long argument against the princi
ple of the unit rule, the reading t which
was frequently interrupted by applause . , ;
At this point a long informal recess took '
place, while the convention was awaiting
the report of the committee on credentials.
The chairman of the committee was not in
the hall and a long" delay occurred although,
it was reported that the committee wero
ready last night. This report will bring up
the real core of the controversy, and it seems
as if the rivals sides hesitated to really .
ACQUIRED A NATIONAL PROMINENCE
and every body understood all the points
involved. Logan, the "boss," who engin- -eered
the Springfield convention, did so in
the interest of Grant. The coutest in this
convention was referred to the committee
on credentials, in which there was a clear
anti-Grant majority. Thus the report came
before the house with tho issuo clearly '
made up and with the sides set for a nVht.
I sent you yesterday the gist of the report
in advance. It seated the Alabama con
testants, who are Rapier, Smith and War
ner, three men who refused to abide by the1
instructions for Grant, or to give any
pledge for his support. The equity of this
case, if it has aDy, would seem to be
against the contestants. They were ex
pressly selected for the purpose
of voting for Grant, and
were so notified, and the conven
tion that made the selections was over
whelmingly and admittedly for Grant. In
the case of Illinois, the report,' as alresdy
published, admitted the contesting dele
gates who were bulldozed at tlc Spring- ' '
field convention by Logan. The report con
tained a thundering stump speech ouotinir
numerous precedents establishinir its con
clusions. The contest against the four del
egates at largo was thrown out,so Black
BothwcU's seat was not iu danger. The '
secretary of the committee read the report
with terrific vehemence and was cvidcntlvan
anti-Grant man. The report contained a
clear and unmistakable argument in favor
of the principlo of representation iu Repub
lican national conventions by congression
al districts. It showed that such form of
representation was iu accordance with the
;eucral practice of the Republican party.
The minority of the committee submitted a
report by BIr. Clayton of Arkansas. It waa
an immensely voluminous document and
took considerable over an hour to read.
As a summary of the facts I may say that
tho committee split on four points, via: "
Two districts from Alabama, nine districts
frora Illinois, one district from West VLr-
ginitt, and the delegates from Utah. . In V
all of theso cases the men seated by the ,
inaiority report are auti-Grant, and those
unseated are tor Graut, etlcctimr in all

Booth suffers terribly sometimes from rheu

amiable of mortals, would, doubtless, iu-

He takes refuse, however, in a uoll.ainnkiwl
