On the Streets.
Chicago, July 11. It is understood this
morning that Randall will withdraw and
permit the vote of Pennsylvania to be cast
for Cleveland. This gives great hopes to
tee mends ot that candidate, that he will
fee nominated on the second ballot. On
the other hand, the opposition under the
lead of Butler and Keliy will make an
effort to prevent an increase of Cleveland's
strength on the second ballot in the belief
that it will then be possible to turn the
tide to some other candidate, possibly to
the representative of the old ticket, Mr.
Hon. Patrick Walsh, expresses the opin
ion to the associated press that Cleveland
will be nominated on the first ballot this
morning, the second ballot of the call.
The following telegram has been sent to
the democracy of Cuyahoga county :
We, the undersigned, your representa
tive in the national convention, familiar
with the entire situation, are satisfied that
neither judge Thurman nor Mr. Hoadley
can be nominated ; that Thurman's name
is suggested simply 4 by Tammany and
other interests opposed to Cleveland, and

He prayed that the consultation of the

equal laws, for the presentation of liberty,
for the punishment of wrong doers and
praise worthy of those who do well. That
every delegate should be kept from being
guided by his otto selfish gain, by his own
pride or his own likings or dislikings. He
prayed that in the great and noble contest

people there would be a cessation from

and telegrams from all parts of the coun

up from woods and relics from different
parts of the world. A delegate from Penn

proceed to business.
A second ballot was then ordered. Mr.

those who had voted for Samuel J. Ran

EMITTED A TERRIFIC YELL.
This was immediately taken up by the
audience and a tremendous howl arose
from all parts of the hall. South of the
space allotted to the delegates the excite
ment and noise swept gradually around
among the audience in the rear of the dele
gates and 'rolled in a tremendous wave
through the vast masses of spectators! con-
the excitement had been confined to the
audience with the exception of a few en
thusiastic delegates, who, remaining in
their seats, waved their fans and handker
chiefs. At length a little ct.mmotion was
visible in the New York delegation, and
the grim v'sage of the grand sachem of
Tammany was seen slowly rising out of
the confusion, like the light on a dark
r, kelly's mouth was as wide open
as the large orifice of a pound net, but
whatever individual noise was being emit
ted by that gentleman was drowned in the
friehtful uproar which took possession of
the hall. Mr. Kelly's arising appeared to
be the signal for a general demonstration

on the part ol the anu-ieveiana men oi

of the space within the railing sprang up
on their chairs and raised a yell of such
intensity that the putty dropped out of
the immense sashes which composed the
roof of the hall. Prominent among the
members ot the body who assisted in cre

of music were lost in the deafening uproar.
One enthusiastic delegate from Indiana.
Mr. Gibson, seized the Indiana marker and
bore it to the chairman's desk. He pass
ed up the aisle and shouted something in
to the chairman's ear. The chair, how
ever, refused to listen, but continued to

In the mean time the audience and dele
gates vied with each other in producing
ear-splitting noises which drowned out
the voices ot two or three aozen Cleveland
men who were endeavoring to gain the ear
of the chair, with all this turmoil about
him. Governor Hendricks presented an
external calm which contrasted strangely
with the frenz- which possessed the vast
assemblage. He sat as if frozen fast to his
chair and resisted the determined efforts

usurped the rights oi all other business for
a period of eighteen minutes which was go

Daniel Voorhees appeared at the side of

of the convention take your seats, the gen

Voorhees then spoke as follows :

out of the terrific uproar came a blast like
he blast of a
in agony and Mr. Beck, of Indiana, mate
rialized with a call for three cheers for
Thomas A. Hendricks. The cheers were
given with an almost venomous good will
and were supplemented by a good old
southern yell for Hendricks from General
Mansur, of Missouri, having given vent to
his exuberent feelings. Gen. Mansur forc
ed his way throueh the crowd in the
aisle and climbed up to the chairman

thumps of the gavel, which began to look
