"The work irocs ou all the while, with
out display or noise, but effectively,"
said a Cleveland enthusiast, "not a point
has been missed so far. Dating back to
Saratoga, the omission'of instructions lot
Cleveland was omitted in order to get
Kings County, and Kings was indi.
pensable. So instructions were omitted,
the unit rule was adopted, and Kings
turns rignt .side up at jut the right mo
meu at Chicago,"
Cleveland men arc in high glee. They
claim tho country will follow New York,
still the vote in the caucus yesterday was
not elating to the Governor's managers.
They expected more votes. It is claimed
however, that wheu balloting Is reached
more than lllty, possibly tifty-tive of the
New York delegates w ill cast their votes
with the majority without protest.
l'owerful influences are at work to re
duce the opposition. The Manning ma
chine, the Tildcn sympathy, a corps of
workers, sonic from other States, are
creating a pressure hard to withstand.
More thau all these Is the greater itittucneo
of the belief that Cleveland will win.
This pervades all elements, and oppresses
Ihe New Yorkers who are opposing the
New York candidate.
It was declared again to-day that Mr.
Kelly has decided tu appeal to the Con
vention to abrogate the unit rule, and
that he will make a strong effort to rally
the opposition on this technical point,
and by holding out an opportunity to the
tield to make ihe unit rule stand synouy
mous with I 1m favorite and beat him
with it, and enlist the co-operation of
men at heart itgalnst the movement. This
scheme offers large possibilities, dud it is
conceded that Its success wpuld mean
more Injury to Cleveland than tho defeat
of Clayton did to illaine. Jilalne suffered
tiothiu'g but a loss of moral strength and
a temporary check to the confidence of
his lollowers. Cleveland, on the
other hand, would lose about twenty
votes, and thoso (roin his own State.
The result, were it possible, say antl
Clevchtnd men, would certainly result in
the Governor's overthrow.
Cleveland men say the project is Impos
sible, They say tho sentiment of the
Convention Is against any such Interfer
ence with the internal affairs oi New
York in Kelly's Interest. Moreover, It is
argued, if Cleveland starts In the race
with less than a majority of the delegates,
there tire other dements which cannot
join In this crusade against the unit rule
for obvious reasons, The McDonald
men tiro not ready to destroy their
rule, also with some of the delegates
anxious to i;et away from the men they
are insiructed for. The ltaudall maiiu
Kers can not gain any movement to de
stroy the unit rule without destroying
themselves. It is believed tho only forces
that would support Kelly's deinaud are
thosu of liiith-r and Jiavard. If Kelly
makes the light it will be out of sheer
desperation and a desire to avail himself
(-f every opportunity to display
the New York opposition to
rii:e!nud. Kelly's opposition has
aroused a goud deal of bitterness
among the Governor's New York sup
porters, lie is charged with becoming
enraged when he heard of tho action oi
the Kings County men, and declaring that
it the Governor was nominated Tammany
would not lift a hand to elect him. This
caused forcible expressions of disgust in
Cleveland centers, and such sentences as
"Go over to liiaine if you want to," "If
we can't elect a rresi.lent without John
Kelly, we don't want one. Let's get
i id of the kicker now aud be done with
Kelly's friends stoutly deny that he
would work attainst Cleveland if he were
nominated. They say: "lie Is too good
a Democrat. " Despite this view, a ru
mor gaim d credeuce that the Tammany
sachem had hit upon a novel plan of re
venge. It was to the effect that in case
of Cleveland's nomination, a Labor Con
vention is to be called for the purpose of
nominating JJutler for l'residoiit, and a
man of Kelly's selection for the second
place, luliy, as well as Iiutler's follow

Notwithstanding these denials in sev
eral Suir.hi-rn and Western States, the
story, hUped a.ong by those interested in
other candidates, is Said to have sent
'I'.iite a number of delegates from Cleve
land to Bayard or McDonald. IJayard
gains especially are reported In the South.
Kelly keeps iu his room. He has two
parlors, lu oue of them he remains and
receives a favored few. In talking with
a few friends in the hearing of a 1'uited
l'ress representative, he denounced the
alleged interviews with him that have'
been printed. He said w ith some feeiiug
that he had not been ' interviewed'' by
any newspaper men except in the most
gi-neral way; that he had declined to sav
anything for publication that he Lad
not authorized asin:ie utterance such as
has 1'Ceii put in his mouth. ' 1 cour-e,"
he laughingly remarked, "my views are
pretty well known, and I suppose the
versatility and fertility of reporters do
the rest. Hut," he added, "while 1 want
it understood that I do not liguie in news
paper Interviews, I do not hesitate tOf .IV
that the action of the Sew York
delegation is a great mistake, I feed it so.
I know it does nut represent New York
sentiment. If it did, I would gladly sup
port it. I want to see the old party come
into power, i want, as you like," turn
ing to Mr. Belmont, "to say for once, that
if we are beaten it is not John Kelly's
fault. I am not the power behind this
anti Cleveland move, and Tammany is not.
It is the people. They voice it. They
declare that they wili not support Cleve
land. Men in New York, entirely re
moved from Tammany inilneiiees declare
it: men I know who know nothing of our
political differences, who care nothing
for 'John Kelly' or Tammany, declare
that they will not vote fur Cleveland.
The defection is from the very class of
Democrats we must have to win, work
ingmeu, artisans, laborers, men who
know nothing of factions don't even
know me all are Cleveland's fies, be
cause they believe iu some way more or
less vague, his course as Governor has
been against them. That feeling
can not be overcome. I might
say that I would like Tammany to sup
port the ticket, that would amount to
nothing. It i not Tainniauy; it is not
me; it is not anv iutliience that Tam
many cau idly bring that opposes Cleve
land; but it is the knowledge that I have,
the deep-seated feeling that the great
mass of New York voters have against
this man, that makes me oppose him.
lie simply can not carry the State, and
we must have the State to win."
It is generally conceded that Tam
many's opposition of itself is not doing
Cleveland much harm, but the steady lire
uikhi him from all over New York from
Democratic leaders, papers, representa
tive irishmeu, workingmeii, societies,
etc., is having its effect. Despite the
efforts of the Cleveland corps to check
the spread of fear that their man can not
be elected, it seems to grow a little.
Many are their plans for giving assurance
to wavering delegates. Their most ef
fective argument Is that the Republican
defection from Blaine will more than
equal the Democratic bolt of Cleveland.
"Mr. Tildcn Is the greatest and wisest
man iu our party," they say; "he knows
New York as well as ho knows his own
yard. He says Cleveland is the man
above all others to carry the State."
Anything like a satisfactory estimate of
the strength of the candidates Is impossi
ble, owing to the doubt prevailing in
mauy delegations. A Cleveland man
llgures tho Governor's strength as fol
lows; NewEnglaud is solid for Cleve
land, excepting Massachusetts, and
ho will get a few votes from
the old Bay State. Here are
llfty votes to start with. New York wilt
give him seventy-two more, and New
Jersey about ten. Florida, Georgia, AN
kansas, Texas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska,
Wisconsin, Miunesota, Michigan aud Col
orado are strong for Clevclaud. North Car
olina may go for Cleveland, but .South
Carolina is for Bayard. Mississippi,
Maryland, Virginia and Alabama are
doubtful. Illinois and Tennessee will di
vide, the former In favor of Cleveland,
the latter favoring McDonald. The Gov
ernor's strength ou tho llrst ballot will
not be far from 400 vote.
"Mentor," the Chicago Ihnthl's writer,
summarizes the situation to-day as fol
lows: Cleveland probably has as many votes
as Butler, Randall, Bayard, Thnrman,
lloadly, McDonald and Field together.
Butler has not to exceed hall ft dozen
voles outside of Massachusetts. Randall
Is suffering as tho tariff feeling runs
higher, and does not gain a po-iut. Tho
claim of ten votes for him Id Alabama
was lll-fouuded. He will not have,
' " i -Jl
ing, and McDonald's holding Its own.
Field makes no progress. Tho opposi
tion is much scattered, ami it can not
concentrate. If Bayard should become
dangerous Randall, lloadly and McDon
ald will go to Cleveland, thu llrst because
of Tiideu's wMi, the other two on ac
count of their desire to get second place.
The Indiauians are continuously talking
of .McDonald for Vice President, pro
testing he doesn't want It. Their
talk shows what their minds are
on. A Cleveland-McDonald combination
is probable; a Bayard. McD mild com
bination quite improbable. Tiny are
both of the same wing and have the same
elements of strength. The McDonald
Sloeiun combination strikes the Tam
many snag, John Kelly disliking Slocum
almost as much as Cleveland. Manning
carries the idea thay New York is to have
tue presidency, anil if Ohio or Indiana
wants second place they cannot say so
too soon. If Cleveland starts with 400
votes, and lias reserve strength sulllcient
to enable him to rise on the second, and
perhaps again on the third ballot, he will
be nominated. The most probable ticket
is Cleveland and McDonald.
Mr. Tilden's telegram to Chairman

gos-ip. While the dispatch was gener

Coxvr.vnnx Hai.i., Cmcum, July 8.
The elements apparently frowued upon
the opeulug of the Democratic National
Convention. At any rate, the bright and
bracing weather of the last week or more
gave way at daybreak to heavy clouds, a
steady down-pour of rain and a decidedly
murky and oppressive atmosphere. Not
withstanding this, however, the local
political world was early astir, aud hours
before the time appointed for the formal
opening, the situation was being can
vassed in the corridors of tho hotels aud
the headquarters oi the delegations by
crowds as large as those of midnight.
Tilden's telegram of last night to Chair
man Barnuin, emphatically reaillrming
the declination contained iu his letter to
Daniel Manning, cam; in for a largo
share of consideration, but is accepted as
forever removing the sage of Uramercy
Park from pub.k life.
The Exposition ouilding beg in to pre
sent a l'Usv aspect soon alter nine o'clock.
The privileged guests were early ou hand,
and at least o,ih.mi peopio were in the
building before a solitary delegate had
put iu an appearance.
There has been more attempt at display
on this occasion thau was the rule last
month, and most of the delegations
agreed last night to enter the building
with martial tread to the music of bands
and the inspiration of Hying banners. At
1 1 : 40 only a score of delegates were in
their seats, but music in the distance
gave warning that the Tammany Braves
were about to come upon tne scene.
The Seventh Regiment band strikes up a
lively selection from "La Fille de Madame
Angot," and siiuutaneously the Connecti
cut delegation, headed by Governor Tom
Walter, tiled into their seats. A moment
later and the Delawarians, with Bay
ard badges conspicuously displayed,
enter lrom the opposite door. In quick
succession follow the Indiauians with the
ball sycamore of the Wabash and Ex
Governor Hendricks at their head.
Kinne of Iowa leads the delegation from
that Stale, John Lee Carroll that of Mary
land, and Governor Lear Abbot aud Jehu
R. Mcl'herson that of New Jersey.

It was nearly half-past twelve when
Governor Hubbard, of Texas, who had
been selected for temporary chairman,
put in an appearance. In the meantime
the nudieuce had manifested its impa
tience by sundry clappings of hands and
stamping of feet.
Ex-Mayor Prince, of Boston, took up
his position at the Secretary's table, but
soon changed It for his seat amoug the
delegation. Judge Thurman, who had
previously withdrawn from the hall for a
moment, received an enthusiastic recep
tion on his re-entry, a member of the
California delegation mounting on his
chair and shouting that the men who had
come U,3iH) miles presented tho greetings
to tho Gladstone of Ohio.
Chairman Barnum appeared on tho
platform and was about to call the Con
vention to order, when, through some
perversity, the band struck up a modluy
of National airs. When Dixlo was

by the Southern delegations, broke Into

prayed that the Lord's blessing might

moved that a fair and impartial num,
Governor Hubbard, of Texas, be made

was carried with enthusiasm.
Messrs. Barnes, of Georgia, Senator
Jonas of Louisiana and Abraui S. Hewitt
were appointed a committee to conduct
Governor Ilunbard to the chair. Ilis ap
pearance ou the rostrum at lg:4S was tho
signal for prolongedapplau.se.
Governor Hubbard, in stentorian tones,
expressed thanks for the contldonee re
posed iu him by the election, which ho
regarded as a compliment to tho State
from which he came, and which, more
than any other State, was absolutely cos
mopolitan in every liber. It was peopled
by the wanderers from every State, and
it was now with over two million people,
placing lu the ballot-box over lOO.Ooo
Democratic majority. He would not at
tempt to speak of the great history of the
Democratic party, its magnificence,
progress, power ami wealth, but that
party iu all its essential elements was
the same to-day as wheu founded by the
framers of the Constitution. Men die,
but the life au I principles of the Demo
cratic party could not perish from the
earth, though their advocates
might sleep for ages. lie
thanked God that the Democratic
party was as much au organized party to

would have that too, (Great cheering.)
They had had the Presidency, too, but the

good Republicans to-day turned tlu-ir
faces as well as their consciences from the
fraud of 1 i'. Eight years had passed it

commission remained aud would do so as
long as the Republican party remained in

no statute of limitations to bar this
indictment. The great leaders, Til

rising to the loot aud shouting long and
continuously with the diguity of states

retirement thau the men who profited by
the fraud. The democratic party wotiid
be iu power to-day but for Republican
gold and notes fresh aud uncut, fresh
from Washington. The money of

venality of the Republican party.
1 he speaker went ou at length to de
nounce Republican administration of
public affairs and glanced over the work
of the Springer Committee; pictured the
reforms w hich would follow the re-entry
of the Democracy to power, and in con
cluding urged that when the committee
on platform reported they may have no
doubtful oracle speaking with double
tongue on the great Issues of tho day
but such a platform that the wayfaring
man, though a fool, might read and un
derstand. Governor Hubbard concluded at 1:13
with a plea for calmness and conciliation
in councils ami iu action, jud resumed
his seat amid vociferous applause.

cation voted in last night's report.
Mr. Grady, of New York, was hissed,
followed by cheering, on submitting the
following amendment which was also
cheered: "Aud wheu tho vote of
a State, as announced by the chair
man of tho delegation from such
State Is challenged by any
member of the delegation, then the
Secretary shall call the names of tho in
dividual delegates from tho State, and
their individual preferences, as expressed,
'shall be recorded as tho vote of such
Fellows, of New York, challenged the
right of the Convention to defeat the w ill
of New York as expressed by her Conven
tion. They should not strip the laurel
from her brow without a protest from
some of her loyal subjects.
Tho State Convention of New York
elected the delegation and they
have no choice but to comply with the
orders',(uot Instructions) that New York
shall give a unanimous vote according to
tho wl of the majority of tho delegation.
"Fourplay," said tho speaker, "was In
tended." He again challenged the right
of the Convention to defeat the will of
New York. Everj element of the party
was represented at the Saratoga Conven
tion. That Convention had elected
seventy-two delegates to express
the will of this State ou this lloor, ami that
Will was that tho delegation should vote
as a uult according to the will of a ma
jority of the delgation. Every delegtte
and alternate was bound by this solemn
Injunction and they dared not vlo'ate It.
Wheu the Convention had declared Its
cholcc,,New York would follow, but In the
form and rules of action here, New York
alone had a right to give orders for its
own government. He asked the Conven
tion to consider well before It struck at
the will ot hut State as expressed In tho
Senator Grady then arose amid loud ap
piause. He said he was there to say that
there was do danger ot the Convention
stripping the crown from the brow of
New York, bntyct that crown was In Im
minent dangor through the lnthieuce ot
political machinery. The Convention
jnlghj pn trln Vow York of her right
Hons. Ho claimed that & StaUTCdrT?
ventlon could instruct the deJegAtes-af
large to vote in a certain way, but tha
district delegates were responsible only
to their districts, and any other doctrine
would be undemocratic. If they passed
tho rules proposed by the National Com
mlttue there wero resolute men who
would toll them why certain candidates
could not be nominated. Prolonged
hissing Interspersed with applause, which
coutlnued until Cards, of Virginia, rose
to a point ot order that the
debate was not In order
during temporary organization. The
Chair overruled tho point of order and
Grady continued, saying that while tho
newspapers might announco that Net
York was a unit, ho represented a con
stituency whose rights ho proposed to
make known in the interest of the Demo
cratic principle of homo rulo. Mr. Fel
lows had said that more than two-thirds
of the delegation had Instructed the
Chair to cast the vote as a unit. He had
not described tho InJlueuces which had
been at work to secure that two-thirds.
He had not explained why certain men
who came here pledged had changed their
minds, but there were men piesent who
would state this, and give the reasons as '
Grady was hissed and cheered, and Mr.
Doollttle, of Wisconsin, continued the
discussion, supporting the unit rule in- a
.Mr. Power, of Michigan, moved to re
fer the whole matter to tho committee on
rules. Motion lost.
Mr. Cochrane, of Now York, urged the
Convention not to lend itself to gagging
the party, but to support a strong and
powerful minority of the party.
Cochrane, who was alternate for J. J.
O'Donohue, made a vigorous address In
favor of Tammany's position, although
he disclaimed speakiug for aoy faction or
iu tiie interest of any candidate. The
unit rule, he said in conclusion, was au
outrage and a fraud.
General Clancy, of California, said Cal
iforuians looked to the Empire State to
lead them In the struggle, but they de
sired harmony. Ho declared it would bo.
an outrage for the Convention to permit
a majority of each delegation to depriwo
tho minority of representation. He made
a passionate appeal for harmouy and a
o. W. Powers, of Michigan, followed
in a vigorous denunciation of gag law.
Senator Jacobs, of New York, rose
amid cheers, but gave way for Mayor
Carter Harrison, of Chicago, who said it
was not a question for the Convention to
settle, but for each delegation to settle
with Its constituencies. He pointed out
that if the chairman of a delegation an
nounced the vote improperly it was open
Senator Jacobs, of New York, bowed
to the will of the majority.
Amid prolonged applause, Mr. John
Kelly, of New York, rose as Mr. Jacobs
sat dow n, lie received round after round
of applause. When silence was restored
he began to speak but was interrupted
by loud cries of "platform." The chair,
however, stated that each delegate ex
cept by suspension of the rules was ex
pected to speak from his seat. Mr. Kelly
proceeded. He assented to the statement
tiiat no objection was raised to the unit
rule In tho Saratoga Convention, but
claimed that there wero various prece
dents for allowing Individual action of
delegates even when the unit rule had
been adopted by the majority, aud made
a strong appeal to the liberality of the
Convention. His eutire remarks were in
audible to nine-tenths of tho Convention
and cries of "can't hear" were heard on
Colonel Fellows was again recognized
at 2:10 and repeated his former argu
ments, and declared that the Convention
had no right to dictate to the majority ot
tho New York delegation. He challenged
Kelly, who had come from the same Con
gressional district as himself, to deolare
how It happened that both had contrary
instructions. Where did these Instruc
tions come from?
Kelly replied that ho represented one
Democratic party In New York, while
Fellows represented another.
To this Fellows retorted amid loud
cheers, that there ought to be but one
Democratic party in the State. By this
time, 2:30 p. m., two hours have been
wasted in debate and tho Convention is
beginning to get impatient. J
Fellows quoted Cochran's statement
that the reason Tammany did uot oppose
the unit rule at Saratoga was because
they thought things were different; that
is, that Tammany would have a majority
at Chicago. Fellow's statement was re
pudiated, and he repeated It amid great
applause. When, also, he said that
it was not necessary for Tammany
to repudiate machine methods,
because tho entire country know
that everything done by the Democ
racy iu Now York was the spoetaueous
will of the peopio, ho was rewarded
with prolonged applause and laughter.
General Bragg, of Wlscousiu, followed
lu opposition to the unit rule.
Mr. Kirk, of Louisiana, made an argu
neutatlvo address in the interest of har
mony. The following is the vote ou Grady's
Votes cast 7'.'5. For tho amendment
1!23; against It 4H;l.
The Convention Is In an uproar. Tho
vote Is hailed with delight by Cleveland's
supporters. When Manning reported
New York's voto as a unit, Cochrane,
who challenged the vote of New York and
demanded the roll-call, was howled down
by the Convention. Tho voto is regarded
as a black eye for Tammany.
The original resolution, as offered by
Sfiialloy, of Vermont, was then adopted.
The call of States on permanent or
ganization was ordered, after which, at 4
p. in., the Convention adjourned until to
morrow at 11 a. m.
