It is reported that the Blalno managers
have resolved to cmdoaror to break the
policy of delay heretofore pursued by the
Arthur and Edmunds irmuagora and push
matters to a conclusion. While fighting
stoutly in the committees they trill coir
tent themselves with that and not invite
resistance in open convention. This
Booms to bo their best plan. They also
hope to defeat the independents by in
ducing Arthur men , who also nro opposed
to a dark horse , to come together on
some late ballot. Col. N. A. Reed , of
the Centralia Sentinel , said to a reporter
of the associated press this morning , that
all this talk about Gen. Sherman not being -
ing a candidate was
Col. L. M. Dayton , of Cincinnati , who
was the general's personal and most
confidential staff ofUcor in this city , has
boon circulating extensively among the
members of the Loyal Legion , of whom
there are a great number in the city.
Col. Dayton said : "Iknow that General
Sherman had never penned any suoh dls
patch as it was rumored ho had done ,
aying that ho would not servo as president
dent of the United States oven
though ho was nominated. The
position is this : General Sherman
has attained the highest' honors which
can bo bestowed jjupon any man by the
American people. Ho is a ware of this. Ou
the contrary , John Sherman , while ho has
had great honors bestowed upon him , has
seen honors beyond and above this which
ho has notenjoyod. | Aslong as John Sher
man was in the field or rathar nntil he
had reached the fruition of his ambition ,
his brother , the general , would not allow
even by implication his name to bo pro
sontcd , used , or whispered. Now is is
certain that John Sherman does not stand
the slightest chance of being more than
mentioned in this convention. At
this juncture , the friends of General
Sherman are in no ways antagonizing the
interests of his brother , John Sherman ,
when they say if the American people see
fit to honor William Tecumseh Sherman
as a candidate for the nomination ol
president of the United States , ho will
not decline the honor.
"Now , mind , "continued Colonel Day ton ,
"General Sherman is not seeking the
nomination but his friends huvo boon as
sured that a largo number of delegates
will support him in case it is known that
ho would not decline. "
CHICAGO , Juno 5. The convention
was called to order at 10:04 : and was
opened with prayer by Bishop Fallows ,
of the Unformed Episcopal church. Ho
prayed that those who might bo elected
by this convention for the loftiest posi
tion to which mortal man can aapiro
shall possess every qualification of body ,
mind , and heart for their high and holy
trusts ; that personal preference and in
tercets should yield to the just demands
of a true and broad patriotism , and that
a qualification of choice should bo made
by the poopls in an unmistakable man
nor.Unnry Ballnrd , of Vermont , chairman
of tlio committee on credentials , re
ported that sessions of the committee had
been almost continuous , leaving mem
bers no time to rest. Ho took pleasure
in saying that proceedingo had been entirely
tiroly harmonious , and without reference
to personal preferences. The result was
a unanimous report , which announcement
mont was received with npplauso. The
report of the committee on credential.1)
was then road by Mr. Fort , of Now
Jersey. It was to the effect that the
sitting moBibors in all the contested
cases are entitled to their seats except in
the caao of the Ninteonth district of
Now York and the Fifth district of Kentucky -
tucky , whore both delegates and con
testants are admitted , to cast half vote
each. In the Virginia case the com
mittee found unanimously that the dele
gation headed by Senator Mahono was
entitled Id the seats , The report was
adopted without discussion.
mi : KCLES.
Parks , of California , from the committee -
too on rules reported that the committee
bad adopted substantially the rules of the
last conventionexcept that it recommend
ed the adoption of Cushing's manual ns
the parliamentary law of the body , in
stead of the rules of the house of repre
sentatives , except that the previous ques
tion is to bo in force , as in the houso.
Grow , of Pennsylvania , from the mi
nority of the committee , offereda substi
tute for the 10th rule , which proscribed
the mode of electing delegates to the
next national republican con
vention. IIo proposes that
delegates shall bo elected in the tame
manner as members of congress. Parks
accepted the proposed amendment , Grow
having explained that the delegates at
largo are to bo elected by state conven
tions and that the tnannor of electing
delegates from the District of Columbia
should bo proscribed by the national re
publican committee. The rules wore
then adopted.
Parks offered an additional rule ns to
the order of business.
Bayno of Pennsylvania , moved an
amendment to it so as to make the or
der of business as follows :
First Kcporl ot the committee on platform
nnd resolutions.
Second The call of the roll ot st-itos.
Third Presentation of candidate for pros- !
Fourth Balloting.
Fifth Presentation of candidate for vlco-
The amendment was agreed to and the
additional rule adopted.
Roosevelt , of Now Yorkenquirod what
had become of the proposition in regard
to representation in future conventions.
IIo know that there was a strong fooling
that there should bo some change by
which the number of delegates should bo
more nearly proportioned to the republi
can votes in the respective states.
Parksof Californiachairmanofthocom-
mittoo on rules , said that that subject
had boon withhold until a minority
report could bo prepared.
Thurston , of Nebnaska , moved to
amend the seventh rule which provides
for nominations by a majority of the
votes cost by requiring a majority of all
the delegates. Ho said that no rules
should bo enforced by which less than a
majority of duly elected delegates should
attempt to force n candidate upon the
party. Such action would bo repudiated
by the freemen of America. ( Applause. )
Sanders , of Montana , offered an amend
ment that no person shall bo eligible as a
member of the national convention who
is not eligible an a member of the elector
al college. Hoar , of Massachusetts ,
made an explanation as to the effect of
the civil service law passed by congress a
year ago and said it was not the purpose
of that law to prohibit any federal officer
from exercising all the rights of an Amer
ican citizen.
The amendment offered by Sander :
was adopted. The amendment offered
by Thurston , of Nebraska , wan adopted
after some verbal nfjdi'lcatious ! This
disposed ( at 12:30) : ) of the question of the
rules , except as to the
that subject being withhold.
The convention adjourned at 1:50 : till
7 this evening.
At the conclusion of the discussion on
representation McKinlcy , of Ohio , from
committee on resolutions then presented
the report , as follows :
Tha republicans of the United States in Na
tional Convonlion assembled , renew their
allegiance to the principles upon which they
have triumphed in six successive presidential
elections , and congratulate the American people
plo on the attainment of so many results In
legislation and administration by which tlo
republican party has , after saving the Union ,
do/io so much to render its institutions just ,
equal and beneficent , the safeguard of liberty
and the cmbidimout of the best thought and
highest purposes of our citizens. Tlio repub
lican P'rty has gained its strength by quick
and faithful response to the demands of tha
people for freedom and the equality of all
men ; for a united nation , assuring tha rights
of all citizens ; for the elevation of labor , for
honest currency , for purity iu legislation , and
for Integrity and accountability in all depart

the duties of leading in the work of progress -
gross nnd reform.
Wo lament the dealh of President Garfield ,
whoso sound statesmanship , long conspicuous

Garner , of Indiana , supported the mi

thn genius of American Institutions. It
did not decrease the representation of a

llnulley , of Kentucky , opposed the
