IHE AFTERNOON PROCEEDINGS.
[Western Associated Press.]
The convention was called to order _t 11:1S by
Chairman Lynch, who, after rapping the vast
audience into silence with his gavel, said the con
vention will be opened with prayer by Rev. Jno.
11. Harrows, of this city.
The Rev. Mr. Barrows, pastor of First Presby
terian church of Chicago, addressed the throne of
grace. *\ v :
The (hair: —Gentleman of the convention, the
chair requests the gentleman, when they are re
cognized by the chair, to distinctly announce the
nam. and state, so that there will be no mistake
made by the reporters. *
Mr. Gary, ot Marylandl desire to present to
the convention a memorial of the state temper
ance alliance, and 1 ask that it be referred to the
committee on resolutions.
After some debate the memorial was read and
referred to the committee on resolutions.
Senator Plumb, of Kansas—l wish to offer a

responsibilities of American citizenship, the best
Interests of the republic are with those who are
bound to it by the ownership and posses-ion of
it. The system of tenant farming and absentee
landlordism which has disturbed Ireland and de
. troyed the peace of Europe is opposed to the
doctrine of the fathers and has place in the
policy ot a republic.
Mr. Plumbl move the adoption of the reso
Mr. Hawkins, of Tennessee.— sent a resolu
tion to the secretary's desk, which I ask to be
read, and 1 move that the rules be suspended
and the resolution passed. It is a resolution
binding the support of this convention to its
nominee, whoever he may be.
The Chair—The secretary will read the resolu
tion. The secretary—
Besotted, As the sense of this convention
that every member of it is bound in honor to
support the nominee, whosoever that nominee
may be; that no man should hold a seat here who
i- not ready to so agree.
Mr. Hawkinsl ask a vote by states on that.
The Chair— gentleman from Tennessee
moves that tha rules be suspended and that the
resolution pass. . ' -,
Mr. Pierce, of Massachusetts trust that that
resolution will not pass. I come here with the
purpose, that I believe every one has done, ex
pecting in good faith to support its nominee, and
believing that this convention would not nomin
ate any man who would not command the univer
sal support of this convention. [Tremendous
applause], Of the people of the Vnited States,
the matter lias had in the past a bad record,
brought here when Lincoln was nominated, and
brought by the gentleman - from Kentucky, Mr.
oakling, the late Mr. Conkling, and I trust that
convention will not bind itself by such a resolu
Mr. Winkley, of Wisconsin, —I take it that
our presence here Is an assertion of itself on the
part of every one of us that we propose to sup
port the nominee of this convention. |Ap
plause.] It needs no resolution in order to en
force that assertion, [Applause.] And it is for
this reason that lam opposed to adopting any
resolution on the subject [cries of good.]
Mr. Haw kins, of Tennessee— offering that
resolution 1 did it in good faith, and I trust there
is not a delegate to be found here that is not
ready and willing to subscribe to that resolution,
and if there be a delegate who is not willing to
. upport'the nominee of this conventi m, he
surely aught not to be allowed in this conven
tion, I don't care where he comes from, and I
know of no harm that can come to a
man who is here for the purpose of participating
in making this nomination, I know of no harm
that can come of endorsing that resolution and
faying he is willing to stand by the nominee of
this convention. I ask that it be passed. I have
heard whispers in the air as to tne couse of some
gentlemen. I don't believe they are true, and
for the purpose of showing the world that the
Republican party stands here a unit and deter
mined to support the nominee of this convention.
1 introduced that resolution, and I now move its
Air. Knight, of California,Mr, Chairman, I
hope that that resolution will pass. [Applause.]
So honest Republican, no man having the good
of the great Republican party at heart should
dare to stand on the floor of this convention and
vote down that resolution. | Cheers. | There are
already whisperings in the air from men high
in the Republican party, or that are to stand
high in the Republican party, open and avowedly
declaring that they will not support one man if
he is nominated by this convention, a convention
of the most intelligent of this nation. That kind
of men we want to know and the sooner
they are out of the Republican party the better it
will be for the party. Gentlemen of the conven
tion, no more enthusiastic people are under the
shadow of the American flag than those in the
eectien I come from: no man as enthusiastic as
their candidate can be found in the country. But
If he should not be the choice, I believe he would
be false to every principle of the Republican par
ty, we would be false to the constituency we rep-
sent, we would be false to ourselves, if we did
not abide by the nominee of a part of this intelli
gence. [Applause.] Tell me what reason can
be urged that these men, gentlemen of this con
vention, selected alone for their intelligence,their
patriotism, their zeal in behalf of the Republican
party, that this convention shall not support its
nominee. Therefore, gentlemen of the conven
tion, we hope, yes, we insist, from the section of
country thai we come from, that this be voted
for. and that whoever he be lie will have the
hearty support and votes of this convention, and
all those, be they editors of newspapers or con
ductors of great political .journals, who refuse to
support the nominee, let them be branded [tre
mendous applause and cheering] that they not
only ccme here and violated the implied faith
that was put in them, but the direct and honest
convictions of this convention, expressed by a
direct vote on the subject.
When Mr. Knight took his seat about seventy
five delegates arose in different parts of the hall
and insisted on being recognized by the chair.
The chair refused to recognize any of them, and
repeatedly requested them to be seated. Reluct
antly they took their seats, and a moment after
the confusion had subsided the chair recognized
the gentleman from New York, Geo. Wm. Custis.
Mr. Curtiss climbed on his chair and began to
.peak. He said:
Mr. Chairman, [But at this point loud calls
came up from all parts of the house platform.
Mr. Curtis shook his head and retained his posi
tion on the chair. Gentleman of the convention,
a Republican and a freeman, I came into this
convention. By the grace of God, a Republican
and a free man will Igo out of the convention.
[Cheers.] Twenty-four ago I was here in Chica
go. [Applause.] Twenty-four years ago I took
part with men ot this county who nominated
the man who bears the most illustrous name
in the Republican party, and the brightest ray in
whose halo of glory and immortality is that he
was the great emancipator. [Cheers and cries of
good, good.] In that convention, sir, a resolu
tion was offered in amendment of the platform.
It introduced into that platform certain words
from the declaration of independence. That man
was voted down in that convention and Josiah P.
Giddens, of Ohio, rose from his seat and was
passing out of the convention. Ashe went to
pass lv my chair I reached out my hand, well
nigh a boy and unknown to him. I said, sir,
where are you going? He said to me: I, young
man, I am going out of this convent
tion, for I find there is no place in
a Republican convention for an anti-slavery man
like me. Well, gentlemen, after this he stopped,
and again took bis seat, and before the conven
tion concluded the Republican party declared
that no word, no deed, no sign should ever be
made in a Republican convention that in the
slightest degree reflected upon the honor or the
loyalty of men who took part in that convention,
and upon their adhesion to liberty. [Loud ap
plause.] The gentleman who was last upon the
floor dared any one upon this floor to vote
against that resolution. I say to him in reply
that the presentation of such a resolution in
inch a convention as this is a stigma, an
Insult upon every man who stands here.
This question is not a new question. Precisely
the same motion was brought up at the last con
vention, and a man from West Virginia, I honor
his name, that man said, in the face of the roar
ing galleries, and in the face of all this success,
this man from Virginia said: "lama Republi
can who carried his sovereignity under his own
hat." [Loud applause.] Now, Mr. Chairman,
Mr. Campbell's position in that convention, the
wise reflection, the after thought of the Republi
can convention of ISSO, under the lead of that
great immortal leader whose ! face fronted ns
there, .lames A. Garfield, of Ohio, [applause],
under the lead of Garfield, I remind my friend
from California that the convention, takin"- its
action, induced the gentleman who presented the
resolution to withdraw that resolu
tion from the consideration of the convention.
Now sir, in the light of the character of the Re
publican party, in the light of the action of the
last Republican convention, the first convention
of which I have known in which such a pledge
was required of the members, I ask this conven
tion, mindful of all that hangs upon the wisdom
the moderation, the tolerance and the patriotism
of our action, I beg this convention to remember
Lincoln, to remember Garfield, to remember the
very vital principle of the Republican party and
assume that every man here who is an honest
and an honorable man I will vote this resolution
down, which should never have appeared in a
Republican convention, as unworthy, to be rati
fied by this concourse of freemen that I see be
fore me. | Applause. ]
The Chair—The chair will say that the rules of
the house of representatives have been adopted
for the government as far as applicable of this
convention and under the rules of the house, or
at any rate undr its usages and customs, speech
es are allowed to be made ordinarily for and
against a proposition.'•* ~ .-7
Mr. Posey, of Indianal desire to say a few
words against the resolution.
The Chair—Then the chair would be obliged to
recognize some gentleman who desired to speak
on the other side. , The * chair thinks that it is in
accordance with', the custom of the house of
representatives. " The secretary will again read
Senator llolph, of Oregon—l move to lay the

so much opposition and in memory of Garfield, I
withdraw it. [Slight applause],

The Chair—The clerk will read the resolu
The clerk read the resolution as follows:
Besotted, That hen-after in the selection by
district conventions of delegates to Republican
national conventions the basis of representation
of the several counties, parts of counties, or
wards comprising the congressional districts
shall be the same as that which at that time pre
vails in each district respectively for the nomina
tion of Republican candidates or members of con
gress, and wherever a majority of counties or
subdivision containing not less than one-halt the
population of the district shall regularly unite
in the call and conduct the convention, the action
thereon shall be valid.
A delegate from Pennsylvania,—l move a sus
pension of the rules, and that a resolution be
adopted for representation in convention by dis
trict delegates. That rule is somewhat vague
and indenuate. ■•..';:

by the committee on credentials to report pro

complete report early this afternoon or early iv
Mr. Rollins, of New Hampshire, Here is a
resolution I would like to have read: I will
send it to the clerk's desk. . , .
The secretary then read the resolution, as fol
Whereas, The evils of the traffic in alcoholic
beverages are great and general, and in the belief
of many of the people are such as to require a
change in the constitution of the United States,

traffic and to remove the evils thereof; and

Mr. Williams, of Indiana—l am directed by the
committee on permanent organization *to report
as the permanent chairman of this convention
Gen. John B. Henderson, of Missouri. [Ap
plause.] I will furnish the list of vice presidents
and secretaries to the hands of the clerk for the
purpose of being read.
The Chair The vice presidents and other
officers are those agreed upon by the several state
delegations. The chair thinks it not necessary
to read them.
Mr. Lawson, of New York— it in order be
fore the settlement of the contests for seats to
elect a permanent chairman?
The Chair—That is a resolution within the
discretion of the convention.
Mr. Law-son—l raise that question of order.
The Chair The chair thinks that that is a mat
ter that is within the discretion of the convention
and it seems that that is what was done four
years ago. \:r-V
Mr. Smalls, of South Carolinal would like to
ask, Mr. Chairman, can we proceed to the elec

committee on credentials shall have reported,
and we know who are members of this conven
The —That is a matter for the conven
tion and not for the chair to decide. That is
what was done four years ago. .- i ...
Mr. Williams, of Indiana—-"I move that the
report of the committee on permanent organiza

The Chair—"The gentleman from Indiana
moved that the report of the committee on per
manent organization be received and adopted.
Those that favor that motion will say aye, con
trary no. The ayes have it. It is agreed to."
The —"The chair will appoint, to conduct
the permanent president of this convention to
the stand, the Hon. G. A, Grow, of Pennsylva
nia: Geo. F. Hoar, of Massachusetts and G. B.
Williams, of Indiana."
The committee appointed by the temporary
chairman escorted Mr. Henderson to the plat
form. During the time that he was being es
corted from his seat in the convention- to the
platform, the applause was continuous , and en
thusiactic. When Mr. Henderson reached the
platform he pinned a beautiful badge on his coat
which was a signal of his office as permanent
chairman of the convention, after which and as
soon as it was possible to be heard,
-in.. IIKXDKnSON- said:
Gentlemen of the convention— have assem
bled to survey the past history of the party; to
rejoice as we may because of the good it has
done; to discover if possible the wants of the
present and with patriotic firmness to provide
for the future. Our past history is the Union
preserved, slavery abolished and its former vic
tims are equally and honorably by our sides in this
convention, The public faith is maintained.
Wo have unbounded credit at home and abroad,
a currency convertible into coin, and the pulses
of industry throbbing with renewed health and
vigor in every section of a peaceful and prosper
ous country. These are the fruits of the tri
umphs over adverse policies gained in the milita
ry and civil conflicts of the last twenty-four years.
Out of these conflicts has come race of heroes
and statesmen challenging confidence and love at
home and respect and admiration abroad: and
now when we come to select a standard bearer
for the approaching conflict, our chief embarrass
ment is not in the want but in the abundance of
presidential material. New York has her ' tried
and true statesman, upon whose administration
the fierce and even unfriendly light of public
scrutiny has been turned, and the universal ver
dict is, "Well done, thou good and faithful ser
vant.". Vermont has her great statesman whose
mind is as clear 'as the crystal
springs of his native state, and whose virtue
is as firm a3 its granite hills. Ohio can come with
a name whose history is the history of the Re
publican party itself. Illinois can come with one
who never failed in the discharge of public duty,
whether in the council chamber or on the field
of battle. Maine has her honored favorite,
whose splendid abilities and personal qualities
have endeared him to the hearts of his friends
and the brilliancy of whose genius challenges the
admiration of all. Connecticut and Indiana may
now count with hands scarcely less illustrious
than these. And now, in conclusion, if because
of personal disagreements on the emergencies,
another name is sought, there yet remains that
grand old hero Kcnesaw Mountain and Atlanta.
When patriotism calls he cannot, if he would, be
silent, but grasping that banner to him so dear,
which he has already borne in triumph, he will
march to a civic victory no less renowned than
those of war, I thank you, gentlemen, for this
distinguished mark of confidence.
When the speaker made his reference to Maine,
and her favorite there then ensued a scene which
simply defies description. The delegates as well
as the audience, rising and cheering, in the
wildest manner. For several minutes the noise
was simply deafeaning, and when it finally died
away somewhat, a stentorian voice yelled, "Hit
him again," and once more the vast "throng broke
forth in tumultous approbation. After the con
clusion of the address a delegate from Arizona
rose in his scat.
Delegate from Arizona—l beg to offer the fol
lowing resolution, to be referred to the commit

SEATS FOR SOLDIERS.
Mr. Mathews, of Illinois desire to introduce
a resolution which I ask to be read to the con- i
vention. >...'.., - '.
The secretary read the resolution as follows:
Resolved, That the committee on distribution
of tickets be hereby instructed to furnish 500 tick
ets of admission during the sessions of this con
vention, to be given to the veteran soldiers who
desire to witness the proceedings.
Mr. Mathews—l ask the unanimous conven
tion to adopt and pass that resolution. It may
be observed that there are soldiers who have
come from over 100 miles to witness the pro
ceedings of this convention and to enable them
to do so this resolution is introduced, and I
hope this convention will adopt it unanimously.
Thurston, of Nebraskal rise to ask a ques
tion. 1 wish to ask in what manner and to what
persons for distribution these tickets will be is
sued? ''*.:7"'- ■'-'■-:".: .■•'; ■■'■,-:■■:'■
Delegate from Pennsylvania move to amend
by adding, and that they be distributed according
to representation upon the floor of this convention
to .the chairmen of the various delegations.
A Delegatel second that motion.
Gen. Clayton, of Arkansas—Mr. Chairman,hav
ing been one of the members of the sub-commit
tee who had chajge of. the apportionment of
seats in this convention.and having some knowl
edge of its seating capacity, I desire to say that
in the apportionment of these seats every seat
was provided for by tickets, and-that the tickets
are sufficient to fill every seat in this hall, i Now,
if these tickets are to be issued I would like to
know where the gentlemen are to be seated—oth
erwise I would be very glad indeed to see them
here, but unless you have seats for these gentle
men, and unless they como and stand in the
aisles it will make interminable confusion. If
you can provide for the seating of the gentlemen,
I shall be very glad to adopt the resolution.
. Mr. Mathews, of Illinois—"ln reply to the re
marks of the gentleman from Arkansas, I want
to say that while it may be true that tickets are
issued tor every seat in the hall, it is equally
true that these seats are not occupied half of
the time, but if one of these veterans who are
not to occupy a seat and the holder of the ticket
therefore should come along and demand it, I
will say to the convention that they will yield to
the authority of the ticket, and I want "to say
further that while these seats are occupied these
men would be glad to stand around the aisles
here and passages, to the end that they might wit
ness the proceedingss. All these men ask it to be
permitted to come into the hall and occupy such
seats as are not occupied by gentlemen and ladies
holding tickets to these seats. Mr. Lee, of
Florida, was entitled to so many tickets and yet
that state has been nnable to obtain these tickets.
There are, I understand, twenty-five seats that
belong to that state. If that state cannot in any
other manner obtain the benefit of tlfese tickets,
she is willing to yield those twenty-five seats that
the veterans may obtain these seats and witness
the proceedings. [Applause. |
The Chair You have heard the resolution.
The first question before the convention is the
amendment offered by the gentleman on my
Mr. Matthews— most cheerfully accept the
amendment from the gentleman on my right.
The Chair The resolution as amended will now
The clerk read the resolution as follows:
Sesolved, That the committed on distribution
of tickets be hereby instructed to furnish 500
tickets of admission to this hall during the ses
sions of this convention to the veteran soldiers
who drain to witness the proceedings, and be
distributed according to the basis of representa
tion on this floor and delivered to the chairman
of the respective state delegations.
Delegate from Arkansas—l would suggest, Mr.
Chairman, that there are states represented on
this floor who have quite large delegations here,
and under the amendment that is offered they
would be entitled to tickets to distribute. We
have, unfortunately, few veteran soldiers among
ns. I think these tickets ought to apply to the
states who have veteran soldiers. We should
place them in the hands of the states that have
veteran soldiers here, and not in the hands of
those who have none. [Applause.]
Mr. Massey, of Deleware—l rise to ■ make an
amendment and that it is that the resolution be
so modified as that the distribution shall be
made of these tickets by a special committee
from the delegation from Illinois. [Cries of no,
no,] so that these tickets, | Cries of no, no, and
hisses,] If the suggestion made on the right of
the hall, by whom I know not, for I did not re
cognize the member, is to be carried into effect,
then it necessarily will be that in a great many of
the states represented here on this floor, from
which there are no union soldiers present, the
purpose intended to be accomplished by the
resolution will have failed, sir. [Cries of no, no. |
The purpose being that these soldiers of the
Union, the men who need no apology to be made
for them in any Republican convention and their
right to be here. I say, if any other arrangement
than that now contemplated by the suggestion be
carried Into effect it will be futile to reach the
object desired, and therefore I suggest
that tho resolution be so modified as to contem
plate the distribution through a special commit
tee from the Illinois delegation, to be selected
by themselves. [Cries of No *No 1]
Mr. .tanning, of lowa—l suggest in response
to the gentleman from Delawore, that if there is
any delegation present that has no union soldiers
or veterans, that the chairman of that delegation
turn the tickets back to the committee with the
request that they be reapportioned to the states
that have the union soldiers. |Loud Applause].
The Chair—Before the vote shall be taken I
desire to state that I have just been informed by
a member of the national committee that tickets
have been issued for every seat in this hall, Is
this house ready for the question? All in favor
of the adoption of the resolution will say aye,
contrary no. The noes seem to have it, the reso
lution is defeated. [Slight Applause].
Mt. Long, of Massachusetts—l move that the
house do now adjourn until 10 o'clock to-morrow
morning. [Cries of "at 11."] I will accept the
amendment to 11 o'clock.
The Chair— It is moved and seconded that the
convention do now adjourn till to-morrow morn
ing at 11 o'clock.
Mr. Hnsey, of Maine—l wish to amend that by
making it 10 o'clock. I understand that at time
the committee on credentials will be ready to re
port. It must necessarily be a lengthy session,
and there will be also a report from the commit
tee on rules, and it is necessary to transact this
business more expeditiously in order to get to
the close of this convention. [Cries of half na«t
10 and 11 o'clock.]

The secretary (repeating the message.) To
the Honorable Senator Dolph: I have to report
that there is no longer any doubt. That the Re
publican's have carried a majority of the legisla

senator to the U_ited States senate. [Applause I

A Fleet Tramp.
Mankato has a most healthful tramp ordi
nance. It has usually secured the • city im
munity from this species of .useless hu
manity, one or two practical applications" of
the tramp rule so wisely provided by our ' city
fathers geuerally'prdduclng the desired' ef
fect. Once in a while, however, some of the
genus homo from abroad strike tho city and
become subjects for■ its most beneficent
operations. On Monday a couple of new Im
portations became a little to fresh and decid
edly too Insolent in their importunities and
were reported by M. Fallenstire to Chief
Welch who started out to look them up with
Mr. Fallenstire to identify them. They en
countered one of them at the end of
an alley coming out of the rear
yard of the City' hotel with an
armload of provisions which he had evident
ly begged. Upon being ordered to halt he
fired the grub at the officer and started off
like a quarter horse. The gentlemen both
started pursuit, but Mr. Fallenstine being
the younger and more agile of the two proved
a second from the start, and after a run of
several blocks during which several fences
were leaped by pursuer and pursued, the
tramp was collared, and upon the arrival of
the chief, who came in' a good third in the
race, he was pulled to the cage at the city
hall. Yesterday morning he appeared before
Judge Porter and answered to the name of
Chas. Robinson, and said he was late of Bis
marck, D. T., and an iron moulder by trade.
He was looking for work, but never had
found any. He remarked that a man who
never had but one meal a week could not
expect to be very fleet of foot, but that he
was trying his best to leave town when
caught. His honor kindly provided him food
at the city's expense for eight days, during
which time they contract to furnish him
work on the streets. '•' tj * .777:'
The Roller Queen.
The second appearance at the Opera roller
rink of Miss Nellie Fuller, ' the champion
lady skater of lowa, which took place on
Tuesday evening, was greeted'with a perfect
storm of. applause by the large audience
which ha* gathered there and the frequent
outbursts of enthusiasm which followed her
marvelous exhibitions of skill upon the
treacherous rollers, show who well she was ap
The natural easy grace of motion of which
the little lady is the most perfect mistress
never forsakes her for a single instant even
during the execution of her most difficult
exploits, and so perfect is her poise of body
and so faultless is her excution that not
once during her entire exhibition did she
make the first faulty move or stumble in the
slightest degree in any act.
All the difficult feats ever performed by
expert skaters were completely thrown into
the shade by the matchless ease with which
she performs her specialties, some of which
are done by no other lady skater, among
which are jumping the rope and skating,
upon a smooth skate without either clamps
or straps. '■'-'.-
Miss Nellie is but eleven years of age and
only began skating about one year ago, but
the art of roller skating has been reduced to
an exact science by her and her sprightly
sylph-like movements are the embodiment
of all that is graceful and elegant. The peo
ple of Mankato who have witnessed her ex
traordinary performances will all testify to
the well earned title which this sprightly lit
tle lady carries of "The Queen of Roller
Skates." The managers of the rink deserve
great credit for securing such an attraction
as Miss Nellie has been, and other managers
can depend upon a drawing card if they se
cure her. '
The retrular weekly sale day of the Manka
to dairy and produce exchange came on
Wednesday at 2 p. m. as usual, and was as
usual attended by a large delegation of farm
ers and creamery men who offered some
582 packages for sale. The bidding was very
slow there being no foreign buyers present.
The sales were extremely light and . the best
price obtained was 18c for choice dairy.
The arrangements about being perfected
at New York will secure facilities for the
disposal of all packages offered in the future
and the state buyers will perhaps ere long
see where they have missed it by not con
trolling these sales. There is no reason why
the exchange cannot ship to New York as
well as any Minnesota dealer and it is more
than likely that they will secure a market for
every pound offered in the near future.

GRAVE DOINGS: BY MORMONS;
Strong and Secret Effort to Strength-
en the Church.
The Terrors of the Hereafter Promised to
Those Who Do Not Mary Early
[Salt Lake City Letter, May 28.]
The energies of the bishops, high priests
and elders of the ' Mormon church
are now bent : in the . direction of
multiplying polygamous marriages. , Every
device known to. the ; _ faithful has been
and will be resorted to. | All the trickery,
subterfuges and superstitions of the church
are employed without stint. Secret meet
ings of the polygamous Mormons are fre
quently held, and committees appointed to
labor with the brethren who have not yet
come to believe in spiritual wifeism. ' Just
what Is the cause of this sudden and enthu
siastic uprising In favor of polygamy is un
known, but it is supposed that the rulers of
the church think that there are troubulous
times ahead for the polygamlsts, and that it
will be well for the faith to crowd as many as
possible into plural marriages before the
storm breaks. It is undeniable that a : fear
exists among the men living in polygamy
that an effort may be made to detach the
non-polygamous Mormons from them, and,
with their assistance, make short work of the
men and women who openly defy the law. ■
To'head off any such movement as far as
possible, the church leaders have been for
several months making every effort to lead
into polygamy all the prominent men not al
ready in. Many of the brethren have been
induced to obey the injunctions of the
church, and hundreds of others are being
labored with. -To help the thing along, men
who now have two or more wives are taking
another, and even mere lads, whose parents
are sufficiently well to do to set them up
well, are taking two or three wives in the
course of a few months. "While all this ac
tivity prevails in the polygamous world, - it
must not be supposed that it is open and
above board. The most stringent secrecy is
observed, and the public is informed of
these happy events only as it sees some new
woman about a house or in company with its
lord and master. As polygamous marriages
are not and never will be extensively popu
lar with women, the' elders have found it
necessary to labor with the young sisters very
earnestly. Persuasion, intimidation and
force have been used very successfully on
scores of girls who have hesitated about ac
cepting positions as wife No. 5 " when they
had hoped to be wife No. 1 somewhere.
Every consideration of earthly and heavenly
happiness is urged upon these sisters to in
duce them to yield, and where one refuses,
she does so with the anthemas of terrestrial
and celestial Zion ringing in her ears. The
longer the grand raid on polygamy is put off
the stronger will polygamy be found. The
present revival in that line surpasses any
thing ever before known. :
Following out the general policy of the
church of late, Bishop Warburton, of the
First ward,in a sermon the other day, advised
those of his congregation not yet in ploygamy
to enter in it at once, and in the course of
his remarks he took occasion to caution the
women about gossipping. He said 'nothing
could be more unrighteous in the sight of the
Lord than "that the women should go around
blabbing when one of the bretheren hap
pened to take another wife." He said that
very sin had deterred many good men from
contracting additional marriages, and he
hoped he had seen the last of it. He wanted
everybody to live up to his or her religion,
but he enjoined the - greatest secrecy and
caution to all. Because Brother A took a
fourth wife was no reason why Sister B should
catch up her shawl and gad around town
telling everybody of it. All such things were
disgraceful, and would surely* bring punish
ment upon the people guilty of such folly. :.
■ "Go into polygamy at once," said he, "if
you are not already in it, but be secret, and
do not let your next door neighbor know
anything about it." ■ _-
The profound impression made upon
these superstitious and ignorant people by
the revival now in progress, is well , Il
lustrated by an incident which recently oc
curred at Mill Creek, just south of the city.
Samuel Billings, a young man who was mor
tally ill, sent for a young woman to whom he
was engaged, and informed her that he was
seriously troubled as to his future. He had
hoped to live and have several wives, but he
now considered that his end was near at
hand, and he wanted to ask a great favor of
her. He then told the girl that he wished
her sealed to him for eternity before his
his death, and after that event he wanted
her to marry some good man who would be
the earthly father of the-children which would
be his (Billing's) in heaven. To this tearful
request the young woman readily assented
and the strange pair were duly and cere
moniously "sealed for eternity." Soon after
this the young ' man died. : The Mormons
call this a beautiful death-bed scene, and in
telling it among the old people, many "ahs 1"
and"ohs!"may be heard. According to
the faith of the | Saints, the arrangement
made by Billings is all right. The woman's
offspring, no matter how many, will all be
Billing's in heaven, and she will be his wife.
Her case is now in the hands of the church
authorities, and a husband will be given her
in the course of time.
Last winter Bishop Roundy, of Wauship,
near here, spurred on* by the newly awaken
ed interest in polygamy, took a third wife in
the person of Miss Nellie White, a tall and
handsome gjrl of twenty-five. He tried to
keep the matter quiet, but it leaked out at
last, and some reference to the wedding was
make in a local newspaper. Miss White
taught school and gave music lessons, re
tained her maiden name in public and pre
tended to be boarding only at the bishop's
house. It was well known, however,that she
was his wife. Last week the grand jury sent
for her and tried to find out all about it, but
she refused to answer a word. When they
found that she would answer neither yes nor
no they reported her to Judge Hunter as con
tumacious and he committed her to the peni
tentiary for contempt. She was richly dress
ed and was generally pronounced a beauty
by the Gentiles who saw her, her blazing
cheeks and flashing eyes heightening her
charms. While waiting in the court room for
the conveyance which was to take her to
prison she freed her mind.
"I do not feel at all bad about this mat
ter," said she, "because I have the conscious
ness of doing right. I will stay there ten
years before I will answer those questions,
for I do not consider it anybody's business.
The Mormons have suffered great persecu
tions for religion's sake. i The Gontiles have
so altered the constitution that we are no
longer guaranteed the, right to -pursue our
religious inclinations as we see fit. We hurt
nobody in the practice of polygamy. '. What
harm have I done to anybody? If we believe
polygamy is necessary for the salvation of
our souls and think it a religious duty to go
into it, whose business is it, I would like to
know? If a husband and wife agree that an
other wife shall be taken into the family and
a young girl agrees to become that wife and
views such a marriage as a matter of salva
tion and religious . duty, do you think '. it
wrong or is it anybody's . business to inter
fere with the arrangement?"
: Bishop Roundy, his two other wives, some
of their children, and many other Mormons
of both sexes waited to see Mrs. Roundy HI.
off, and all indulged in the severest com
mendation .of the 7 federal, authorities for
what was termed their tyranny. It has been
asserted by many Gentile writers on the Mor
mon question that the women here look with
heart-broken disfavor on ' the '-' admission of
new sisters to the rights of wifehood. This
is true in some cases, where the original wife
is unable to believe | all i the teachings of the
church on the subject of plural marriages, or
where she is high spirited, intelligent and af
fectionate woman, as is sometimes the case*
but Bishop Roundy's first two I. wives felt as
bad over the incarceration of * the young and
blooming third wife "J as did '- the , ancient
brother himself. As the young woman seated
herself in the ' carriage which was to convey
her to prison the two old women wrung their
hands in rage, and wife 1 kissed the girl in a
motherly way," : and I said: "God i bless : you,
but God damn those C who f send you there?"
Nellie said she would never answer a ques
tion if they kept her ; locked ' t up ■ all
her life, and waving her . handkerchief,' she
soon disappeared from view..
All this commotion on the subject of plu
ral marriages is due to a "revelation" which
President John Taylor ; received two years
ago from God.:. Nobody outside the ; church
knew that this communication from on high
had been received * until a few '■ weeks ago,'
and a good , many ; members ■ of the church
have not J yet received authentic copies of
the new orders. The. policy of Taylor ap
pears to have been to work in secret,' and
most of the exhortation has bsen carried on
in that way. He has : had two or three big
meetings of all the officers of the church
within the last few: weeks, and at these as
semblages his revelation has been read. On
the occasion of the last meeting two officials
who were not in polygamy, and who stub
bornly refused to enter the state, were de
posed.* Many others asked for time to con
sider the matter and to talk with their wives.
The days of grace are now about up, and at
a meeting soon .to be held these men will
have to give a definite answer. Mormon
dom, at least that portion of it which is not
in polygamy, is quite as much exercised
over the attacks from within as it is by the
raids from without. Under the new revela
tion received by Taylor all the honors not
only of earth, but of heaven, for men and
women both, are to be | given to those who
marry early and often.
Lots of old Pictures.
San Francisco Chronicle.
Sacramento, May 11—The most curious ob
ject now on exhibition at Sacramento is the
Crocker gallery." At the last session of the
Legislature it was proposed to buy the gallery
for the state. It is the only gallery of art on
this side of the mountains. Though inferior
in value to the Vanderbilt and Belmont gall
eries, it contains some grand pictures, and
it comprises specimensmore or less indi
vidually valuable— nearly all the various
schools of art.
Two things are evident on going through
the gallery, first, that Judge Crocker was not
a judge of art; and second that he did not
take the pains to secure the services of a
competent picture j hanger. Quite a large
proportion of the paintings which bear illus
trious names are hung so high that it is im
possible to decide whether they are genuine
or spurious. This applies to an "Effect of
Fireworks", by Achenbach, to a queer com
position on panel, to which Tenier's name is
given; to at least one landscape said- to be
by Claude; to a "Bull Fight"£by Salvator;
to a "Magdalen", by Guido; to an "Assump
tion," bearing the name of Rubens and to
There is enough of the old Italkn school
to illustrate its style, but with thejSception
of a noble portrait by . Tintorettlf and a
rather suggestive group of "Lot and his
daughters," by the same master, there is
not one good picture in the lot. Correggio
has a "Venus and Adonis," Andrea del Sar
to has a "Holy Family". \ The various styles
of Raphael, Paul Veronese, and ■ Titian are
represented by very ordinary pictures "after"
those masters. Salvator is represented by a
picture of a landscape with a waterfall, which
is almost j certainly spurious, but it gives
some faint idea of the master's 6tyle. A
wretched daub, entitled, "Ecce Homo" is
ascribed, obviously by error, to Leonardo.
Probably the gem of the gallery is a "Gyp
sy" by Murillo, a canvas in whice the real
istic truth and rugged strength of the mas
ter are fully revealed. It will repay the vis
itor for a trip to Sacramento. There are few
other Spanish pictures. Zurbaran has a "Job
and his wife", in _ which it is hard to say
whether the emaciation of the patriaach or
the greasy embonpoint of his fat wife are
most to be admired. , The old French school
is also meagerly represented. There are two
or three pictures ascribed to Poussin, but
which, for the credit of that meritorious pain
ter, it is best to consider spurious; a "Dido"
by Mignard, in which the ghastly pallor of
the Carthaginian Queen cries aloud for stim
ulants; a very poor Le Sueur and one or
two Claudes, which as above stated, are hung
where they cannot be seen. Of the Flemish
school there are several examples. Passing
over a Rubens of* doubtful authenicity and
some other canvases by^minor masters, there
is a spirited-head called I"A Troubadour,"
by Jordaens, a fair portrait by Vandyke, and
a group of "Christ Healing the Blind",
which is ascribed to the same painter.
Whether genuine or not, it is a good paint
ing, lifelike and vigorous. To these must
be added a dreadful' "Hercules and Om
pfcale", by Dippenbeck. from which we per
ceive by the size of her feet that Omphale
must have come from Chicago. 77777
Gen, Cllngham of North Carolina Relates
ait Interesting .Experience.
Health and Lome.
In the summer of 1867, in the city of New
York, as I was riding in an omnibus, while
looking out of an open window I received a
heavy blow on my right eye from the whip of
the driver, who had aimed the blow at the
head of a horse which seemed about to inter
fere with him. He missed the horse's head,
and the full force of the end of . the whip fell
directly on the centre of my open eye. The
pain was excessive, and the sight of the eye
was entirely taken absolute blackness
seemed before it. Passengers in the stage
said to me: "You had 'better get out and
seek relief, for you do not know how that eye
looks." I soon reached my hotel, and, on
getting into it, sent one servant for a piece
of tobacco and another for two physicians
with whom I was acquainted.
The tobacco came first, and, just as I had
placed it on and secured it with proper band
age, the doctors came in. I told them what
had happened, and that I had just put on the
tobacco. They said* tobacco would be ruin
ous. As soon a I got off the * bandage and
they saw the eye their countenances seemed
to fall—for I could see them with the left
eye, of course. !
"They said: "It will be very difficult to
save that eye," I replied that if it could be
saved the tobacco poultice would do it. They
reiterated their objections, but I, told them
I should try it, and asked them to come back
in the morning. - '.77 7.77'
After they left I restored the tobacco, and
kept it will wet by putting my face from time
to time in a bowl of water, so as to retain the
moisture steadily. The night was one of the
most painful of my life, but as it progressed
the pain seemed slightly, to diminish; yet
even in the morning I still suffered. About
10 o'clock one of the physicians called to see
me, and I took off the bandage. As soon as
I did so I knew that the eye was better, for I
could see the outlines of the open window
before me. The doctor immediately said:
"I never was so astonished in my life, for
your eye, instead of being swollen and red,
as I expected to see it, is shrunk and less
than the other eye, and the lids are white."
He insisted that he ought* to be allowed-to
