Chicago, June 22 - The democratic
national convention was re-eonvened at
11 o'clock this rnnrniDf,' by Temporary
Chairman Owens. The proceedings of
of the convention are being conveyed di
rect to Mr. and Mrs Cleveland at Buz
zrd's Bay by special wire of the Postal
Telegraph company. After prayer, the
Iowa delegation bearing a Me Boies ban
ner marched into the hall, the band play

mittee on ;redentials was first called for
by Chairman Owens. Oa motion. James
R. D.iolittle and Lyman Trumbji: were

made its report through J E Lamb of
Indiana, and the report was unanimous,
and was adopted giving New Mevco and
Arizona six voles each.
The report of the committee on per
manent oraniz Uiori was made through
Chairman Fordyce presenting the name
of VV. A Wilson of West Virginia for
permanent chairman, and the report was
unanimously adopted . A committee of

Wilson of his election, and be was es

C hicago June 1 2 There is no per
ceptitile c iange from the feeling yester
day that Cleveland would be nominated
on the first ballot, altaough the opposi
tion claim to have over 300 votes pledged
against him. A baliol is not expected
Ohk- . i, .l-.iui' -l .While j.Ue nomina
tion of Cleveland appears to W inevitable
on the first rail of the roll of states the
representatives of the state whence Cleve
land hails have not as yet given up the
straggle. Ycsteulay morning the New
Yorkers conceded the success of the ex
president, lull last night they were as full
of combe tiveness as at any stage of the
canvass. Aside from this storm in Xew
York there was scarcely a cloud upon the
horizon. A vast majority of t lie leaders
and delegates had agr ed that the nomi
nation was practically settled, so far as
first place on the ticket was concerned,
but Draco dissatisfaction with the pro
gramme to name ex-Governor Gray, of
Indiana, appeared, and the Illinois friends
of General Stevenson took advantage of it
by sounding various delegations as to the
favor with which his name might be re
ceived. They found much encourage
ment, and the Illinois delegation may de
cide to present General SteYenBon as their
candidate. The Gray managers, however,
are not worried. They claim 500 votes
before roll-call is completed, and predict
u stampede at the close. . They claimed to
have positive assurances from Mr. Whit
ney that Cleveland's friends wouid put the
Indiana man on the tic'..et.

INCIDENTS OF THE SESSION.
Heralded by an Kleetrie Storm Points
of Owens' Speech.
The foregoing gives briefly what the
convention did at its first session. It
isu't very interesting reading, but that is
no sign that nothing of interest toany one
not a politician took place during the
session. There was less of interest, how
ever, yesterday than on Tuesd ly June 7,
for the reason that the result did not eeem
so certain at Minneapolis to outsiders
as it does hero. It seemed yesterday
morning that everybody had settled down
to the conviction that it was Cleveland,
and that there wasn't any right, on worth
taking a hand in. This made the crowd

'I he Rain Descended
Just before thi convention was called to
order a storm came up which, while it
lasted, Wits ;is severe as to rain, thunder,
and lightning as any of the numerous
meteorological disturbances of this very
stormy season have been. It. was over in a
fW minutes, however. While it was go-1

presence km.wn tight over the Tammany j
seats, causing the delegates to put up
umbrellas. The discomfort was of brief I
duration, for the storm soon passed away,
and the sun was shining brightly when1
Owens took his place and grasned the '
A Look Over the Scene.
Just at this time the scene was one to re
member. There wore about 18,009 per
sons in the hall. Right before and all i
around the temporary chairman sat the
representative men of a great party, the'
men who lead its battles, rejoice in its vie-!
tones and mourn over its defeats. There
they spread in front of him veritably j
a sea of faces which for the moment was,
bewildering in its wtn Tl ,l..ct- U
stood at had its history, for it was the one
used in the convention of 1S84, at which
Cleveland and Hendricks were nominated.
!'he sea of faces rose, wave on wave.almost
to the roof in front of him and in-hind him.
It w as truly an audience to inspire a mod
Kneloses a Lot of Space.
"What does the Wurwam look iike inside
Well, like a circus tent three times as big I
as any you ever saw. The effect of the
decorations was lost in the immensity of .'
space and the depressing obscurity of the !
opaque atmosphere. The thousands of j
yards of banting and the collection of;
papier mache spread-eat;les, portraits of j
dead heroes, and emblazoned allegories of !
Fame and Victory w ere barely discernible,
and their effect was lost in the cavernous 1
depths of almost limitless space. The
people seated on the farthest seats can see '
but not lur, and t hey need a good glass I
to see satisfactorily. Features on the
".tage are not discernible from the gallery j
with sufficient clearness to be recognized
unless very well kuown. It's a big build-'
ing, and thoughtful people looking at it
ask: "Where is this thing going to stop" i
"IJoivn with the Tariff."
So this was the scene before Tempo
rary Chairman Owens as he rose to make
his opening speech. Its keynote was an
intense opposition to the McKinley bill.
In order that this measure should lie
swept from the statute book unity and
harmony were the prime necessities in the
Democratic party. He wanted a cam
paign of education carried ou in the east,
which he thought needed it now more
thitn the west. The Fifty-first congress,
he said, "wrote the blackest page in our
legislative history, and the elections im
mediately thereafter condemned it with a
nnaminity that finds no parallel in history
He revived the charge that President Har
rison had for political advaulage misrep-
resented to the country the status of the
Chilian imbroglio, and with a re
mark about how the Marshal Ney of the
Republicans went down at Minneapol s
before the bread aiH Jiutter brigade.
AS THE DELEGATES ENTERED.
Lack of Recognition of Prominent Men
Too Hot to Cheer.
At the first, when the people began to
take their seats in the Wigwam. It was
gratefully cool, but as the building filled
up the heat increased, and the closing of
the canvas covers over the "clerestory"
: an open space all round the roof for light
and air during the rain storm made it
still hotter. It also made the ball so dc.rk
. that little eould be seen, and during the
ww were entering no

Amid the cheers could be beard the eriee
of "Long liv,- Crispi," "Down with the

against the clericals was made.
