Unapt ait still and fan. Coats came olt,
and in some rases vests and collars. When
the storm passed away t lie canvas covers
wer.- lifted and made matters more pleas

notables to be recognised, a cheer WOO Id
break forth frequently drowning for the
moment the music of the band.
A Pleasant Episode.
A resolution offered by Congressman
Ben Cable, of Kock Island, offering "the
OBdolenCM of the convention to James ;.
Blaine in his present affliction," led to
one of the pleasantest epi-odes of the con
vention. Wheu the name of Blaine wm
read by the clerk a cheer broke mU thai
would have done credit to a Republic
convention, tissted for fully a minute.
When the clerk proceeded with the reso
lntion and the convention learned the
tenor of it, a respectful hush fell, ami
when Delegate Swett, of Maine, arose ami
thanked the convention in the nam.- of his
state, there was a brief reign of genuine
feeling highly creditable to the delegates.

TAMMANY IS FULL OF FIGHT.
Going systematically at Work to Organ
lie the Opposition.
XhaKew York delegation leaders una
yesterday aftern ion renewed the fight in
Hill's behalf, and last night were alleging
that a dark horse may yet beat Cleve
land. The rank and file of lli'.l nu n do
not, however, share this sentiment and it
is common talk on the street corners nml
in the lintel lobbies, where New York
tatemen are gathered, or w here the Tam
many badge is displayed, that the Hill
people are badly beaten. The general
opinion is that a combine of Hill aafl
Boies is being formed, but is doubtful at
the present writing whether they pan stop
Cleveland's nomination on the lirsr b.-.l-lot.
Nevertheless this plan is being
usbed and the New York leaders are us
hard at work a if the contest had but
Reopened the Literary Cmavpialga.
At f. o'clock they reopened the campaign
Of literature and issued a manifesto de
claring that Cleveland could not obtain
the electoral vote of New York state if
nominated. This was signed by every
delegate from New Yolk state, including
James II. .Manning, of Albany, the son
of Cleveland's deceased secretary of the
treasury, who has leen a staunch sup
porter of Cleveland and personally un
friendly to Hill. Lithographed copies of
this statement oontainig the facsimile
autographs of the signers were put about
In all the hotels, anil thousands of conies
distributed on the street.
Playing Their Last Card.
Then they prepared to play their last
card. Losing the tri .k they lose the game,
but they have no idea of losing, believing
that they hold the trumps. They sent
emissaries last evening to all the delega
tions which are not bound by the unit
ruL- to vote for Cleveland to try to obtain
pledges to an agreement not to vote for
Cleveland under any conditions. With
the pledges of more than one-third of the
delegates to Buch an agruernent they can
deadlock the convention. The argument
thai they are making is one of party expe
diency. Another argument which they
have used is the statement that one-half
the electoral ticket in New Y'ork will re
sign if Cleveland is nominated. Thisstate
ment came with startling effect on some
of the doubtful delegates aud brought
some of the wavering into line.
Claiming a 1 it Votea Now.
Monday nightjona of the New Y'ork dele
gation leaders telegraphed east that Cleve
land would he nominated on the first bal
lot. Y'esterday morning tho Hill leaders
could not figure more than 279 votes
against Cleveland, and Chairman Mur
phy said that the Hill people were beaten.
Last night the Hill leaders figured 819
votes pledged against Cleveland on the
first ballot, aud said that they had assur
ances of a great uiauy more when pledges
and instructions have been fulfilled. They
said that they were confident of holding
their 31J voles together, aud that if they
c an they have Cleveland beaten. They
have in sight two combinations against
him, one on Boies and one on a darker
Held a Secret Meeting.
As soon as it seemed likely that the op
position would be able to make a new
combination, a meeting of all the anti
Cleveland people was called to be held at
New Y'ork headquarters. It was lOo'cloeJc
last night I fore the emissaries sent out
by the Hill party had brought in enough
to make their conference interesting. The
doors were closed, and everybody excluded
except the leaders of the Hill fight. The
other members of the New Y'ork delegation
were kept on the run visiting the various
hotels to obtain recruits. At half past 10
o'clock 07 delegates from other states bad
assembled. Speeches were made by Suee-
han. Senator Irl y. and others, all saying
that after a cai eful canvass it had been
discovered that Cleveland could be beaten
in convention, at d asking his opponents to
unite with this object in view.
Slieehan Gives Out Some News.
At 11 o'clock Mr. Sheehan came from
the conference and announced that he
would have soni news for the newspaper
men if they Would go into his private
room. In a few minutes he came in and
Introduced General Patchings of Missis
sippi, who, he aid, would make n state
ment. The gene -al said: '"I just desire
to state that, we have made a careful poll
of the d c legates,. md have assurances from
830 of them that they will vote against
the nomination of Grow Cleveland. This
does not include several states where we
are sure we can cbtaiu votes, perhaps on
the first, and certainly after the first bal
lot." He wouldn't say from where the
votes would com.-, but Irby said that the
votes were pledged to the end against
ill Try lo 1 rciik the Call Knl,-.
Another scheme credited to Cleveland's
opponents is to br-ak the unit rule. It is
stated that the 1 ules committee will re
port a resolution allowing each delegate
to vote for his iia vidua preference, and
thus spring a test vote on the convention.
THE "ANTI-SNAPPERS" CONTEST.
A Surprise for the Credentials Committee
Which Is Withdrawn.
The credentials committee organized
MOB after adjournment of the convention,
with Hon. John K. Lamb as chairman,
and then adjourned to 4::t p. m. Vpon re
assembling a surprise was sprang in the
shape of a prote-t from the "anti-snap"
delegates which a as equivalent to a con
test against the r gulur delegates. The
papers were present el and the case went
over, Gen. Bragg ac Vocatiag the claims oi
the "anti-snappers.' Then the roll was
called and the credentials of delegates

lar. Vote for II. e Territories.
Upon a roll call for contests Alabama

When Wyoming was reached Baker, ..f
Wyoming; National Committeemen Field,
of New Mexico; Herndon of Arizona, ami
Thomas of Coloradi eloquently urged the
increase of represcn ation from Arizona
and New Mexico. Bragg opposed, saying
that Colorado defeated Tilden in 187(1 and
he was opposed to running the risk again.
After considerable debate the motion tr

Was adopted 84 to XX Adjournment to 9 p.

" Anti-snap" C, ntesi W ithdrawn.
Wheu the committee met again F. R.
Coudert, of the "ant nap" delegation , was
present, and asked to withdraw the con
test and to state liis reasons therefor.
Coekran opposed taking any ac tion on the
matter, claiming that it was not properly
before the committee, not having I n
prese nted in the convention, ltragg advo
cated a hearing, anil after a long wrangle
Coudert was permit! id to speak.
DMnt Want .Any Controvrry.
He presented resoli tions from the "anti
Miappers" declaring thai as Cleveland had
the votes to nominate him, and that as nil
Democrats of Sew York wonld desire to
unite in his support it the polls, the best
interests of the party demanded that there

He then withdrew th papers.

Col. Jones Has a Platform.
The silver men who were expected to

mittee proceeded to consider a platform
Colonel Jones had in his pocket. The sil
ver plank in this pronouncement was
quite lengthy, but in a sentence it de
manded the free coinage of gold and sil
ver dollars of equal value. Anybody who
has a gold dollar's worth of bullion should
have the right to demand iis coinage. This
declaration, out; (f the members said.
