Wealth and prosperity," said he, "are

Heed's closing words aroused intense en
thusiasm. An Enthusiastic Gathering. j
There was no end of enthusiasm in the
hall. When Fassett took the chair the
cheers were general. At different points
in his speech he had to stop to wait for
silence. When he mentioned Reed's name
there was 'a roof-lifting outburst; and
when Reed slowly gathered himself to
gether, left his gallery seat and walked
down the aisle to the platform he was ac
companied by a tornado of enthusiasm.

the delegates took their seats and ft
moment later M. H. De Young read the
call for the convention. That formality
over, Clarkson announced the selection by
the national committee of J. Sloat Fas

The temporary chairman was sitting
with the New York delegation, but at a
sign from Clarkson he rose and mounted
the platform. When there, in a few well
choseu wort's Clarkson introduced him,
and the first act of the national Repub
lican convention was completed. Chair

Advice to the Delegates.
If to each delegate some one man
appeared better for the nomination than
any other that was the man tor the dele
gate to vote for. The history of the Repub
lican party since lbo'i was tue country's
history. When we named those whom we
tauclit our children to emulate we named
Republicans Lincoln, Seward, Grant,
Sherman, Garfield, Loj;au, Harrison and
Blaine. Those were a few of our jewel.
He closed with a eulogy of the Republican
party, declaring that there had not been
a masterpiece of constructive or progres
sive legislation enacted since the war that
did not bear the imprint ot a tiepunncan.
He contrasted the work of the t lit let h
congress wilh that of the Fifty-first so far.
especially with reference to tariff legislation.
rlea for a Fair Itallot.
At the rate the Democracy was going it
would take them 800 years to produce a
tariff bill complete. The speaker closed
with an appeal for a fair vote and fair
count, charging that tue entire vocabu
lary of political crime has grown out of
attempts to describe assaults of the De
mocracy on the freedom of the ballot.
Until every citizen of whatever race can
vote in security and have his vote counted
as cast, our liberties are unsafe, and in thia
connection he referred to the fact that the
Republicans enter the contest knowing
that 156 electoral votes are absulutely se
cured in advance to the Democracy: south
ern states, lie saul, Kepi permanency
solid through perpetual violation of con-
Destiny of the Tarty.
Chairman Fassett concluded as follows:
SometimesXwe are told that the mis-sion ol
the Republican party is ended: we have met
our destiny and tuliil ed it. But me destiny
of a progressive party is never fulfilled in ad-
vaucinn and expanding national iue. oj long
as thore remains a wrong to be redressed; so
long as there remains a rij;ht to be enforced;
so lonu as all the i ri vile res of citizenship are
not frceiy enjoyed under tlie guarantee til at
the constitution gives to all citizens of this
Union, just so long w ill there be a mission for
th Kopu'ilioan party. So long will there be a
great orK oerore us.
Closing with a poetical quotation iu
chairman waited for no applause, but im
mediately asked: u hat is the further
pleasure of ttie convention.'

BOOMERS OF DARK HORSES.
They Would Have a Speech from Reed
During his speech Kassett, as seen in the
foregoing mentioned Harrison and Blain

fect was to raise a
cheer from the
partisans of both
and prevent any
thing like a test.
The speaker also

to "come down off the perch;" but the con
vention would not be denied, and he took
the platform and made a brief and pithy
1 speech, closing with an earnest demand
Some Kditors and a Senator Who Want
to Shelve the Leaders. I
The third man talk was renewed yester
day not the Alger boom, but the "dark
horse" boom. Aud the name most vigor
ously pushed was that of Senator Allison,
It was advocated from the far east, where;
its interests seemed to be confided to the
charge of Senator A. J. Higgins, of Del
aware, aud from the west and northwest,
where Editor George Thompson, of the St.
Taiil Dispatch, one of the Minnesota dele
gates, was the chief btigleman. Senatol
Higgins for several weeks before leaving
Washington for the convention was of the
opinion that his distinguished colleague
from the Hawkeye state would be the
most available man upom whom to con
solidate all differences of opinion.
lialstead Also a Dark Home Man.
Murat Halstead is stampeded for a "dark
horse." He says the situation demands a
third man. The leaders, he says, are re
ceiving letters from all over the countrj
representing that the best intests of the
country demand a new man. Halstead
thought that the lilaine men were a little
ahead yesterday. These letters and tele
grams "from all over the country" are
great institutions. McKinley and other
Harrison leaders have a whole lot of them
urging the president's renomination, and
(juay and Clarkson et al. have another
lot the burden of whose plea is for Blaine.
Ilattou XXas Another Man.
And now here comes Frank Hattoa,
of the Washington Pust,. who .was post
master general iu Arthur's 'cabinet, and
who is equally well known for his opposi
tion to Harrison and RIaine, as the en
gineer of anothei dark horse movement.
Hatton seems to be willing to take any
body who will lend to knock out both
the principal candidates. He came here
talking for Sherman, but yesterday was
quoted as having transferred his affection
to Minister Lincoln, of Illinois.
