THOMAS S. SILVI?,
The republican city-township conven
tion was held last evening at Turner ball
and was chiefly characterized by the quiet
and firm manner in which the proceedings
were managed by the chairman who held
the reins. There was no chance for a
kick or objection, although a desire to be
heard was frequently manifested, but as
frequently subdued by tbe prompt ad
monition cf the chair, "the ayes bave it,"
and that settled it. There was no appeal
from such decision . The convention in
fact got through with its business before
lue delegates those present with creden
tials, but who "weren't in it" fully
real z;d that it had begun, and tbe ma
jority, which ruled the fateful events of
the sight, left the hall with abundant
assurances of "what a model convention
we had tonight. "
It was S o'clock to a dot when Chair
man Collins, of tbe city-township com
mittee, called the convention to order and
urged that all the delegites huddle to
getber near tbe front of the ball, so
'hat all could hear. The i'ea was ac
cepted as a good one, and Mr. Collins read
the call urder which the convention had
assembled. The nomination of a chair
man being in order, Dr. Truesdale's name
was proposed and he was- elected. Tbe
doctor returned thanks and called for a
secretary. Joshua Ilasselquist was pro-
pesed for the position and be was elected
Tne chair suggested that In order to facil
itate matters the names of the delegates
be rebd and each respond to his name
when read. Tbe proposition did not
strike Delegate Ilutitoon favorably and
he moved the appointment of a commit
tee of ttrrc od crrcer.tmls. Tbe motion

quickly complied with. With the aid of
tbe gentlemen who had written the lists
and the convention generally, Secretary
Haselquiet read tbe names of the ac
credited delegates. The chair found
upon examination that the delegations
were "all full except the First watd." The
down town toys seemed to appreciate the
distinction, which was passed with the
adoption of tbe motion that tbe chairman

The convention spent considerable
time in determining how it should pro

Pleasants were moved to speak oa differ
ent si les of the question. Mr. Foss
moved that the convention vote by ballot
and Mr. Pleasants reeved as an amend
ment tbat the convention vote by wards
The qustion was put and tbe amendment
carried. Several delegates were on their
feet with remonstrances. Tbe chair said
he was willing to submit tbe matter to a
division of the house, but it was sot in
sisted upon. J.N. H union and Adair
Pleasants were elected tellers. Tbe lat

For assistant supervisors tbe names of
A. C. Peters-on, F. Ludolpb, William

formal ballot with the understanding that

number of votes be declared the nomi
