last night's demonstrations and vote on
the adjournment shows Blaiuo's great
strength and indicates hit nomination.
The Inter Ocean says the situation is
practically unchanged ; that southern del
egates remain firm for Arthur and that
Elaine's forces stick with great tenacity ;
that Sherman , Logan and Edmunds were
waiting and hoping for a break in Arthur
or Elaine's forces. The Times refrains
from predictions ; says none of the nomi
nating speeches equalled these of Conk
ling and Garlield four years ago. It is
generally thought a result will not bo
reached to-day unless there should bo a
second session. Blaine men predict his
nomination on the second or third ballot.

seargnnt-at-arms exercised great patience
and there was little irritation.
The rumor this morning in the air is

do BO. [ Lnughtor , ]
Mr. Conger insisted on sponking nmic
much laughter and confusion.
When order was restored , it waa an
nounced on behalf of Now Mexico tlm
Stephen B. Elkins had boon substituted
ns a member of the national committee
fortho gentleman previously announced ,
owing to the resignation of the latter.
Conger , of the Dislrict of Columbia ,
ngain inquired whether Carson's name
hnd boon put on the roll as a member of
the national committee.
The Chair It hns.
Mr. Conger ngnin protested but with
out success.
The resolution limiting the speeches of
nomination to ton minutes was passed ,
and the clerk proceeded to call the roll of
states for nominations.
No response was heard until Illinois
was reached , when Senator Plumb , of
Kansas came forward. IIo said the
convention had completed two of its
most serious duties : the adoption of a
platform and the nomination of a candi
date for president. The platform was
onp on which all good republicans could
unite , and the candidate who could beat
any democrat living or dead ; but it was
still important that the best possible man
should bo named for the second place. It
wns but a matter of just recognition to
the great army of auldiors of the war for
the Union that a representative from
their number should bo placed
on second place of ticket. The Grand
Army of the Republic had enrolled more
thnn threo-qunrters of a million men ,
who Intely were the blue. In presenting
u name from their ranks the speaker
would mention n man fitted in every way
for first plnco ; n man who would add
ntrcngth to the ticket nnd justify the
hopes and expectations of the pnrty.
TJmt man was General John A , Logan.
[ Loud , long nnd renewed applause ]
I'ho speaker did not present him in bo-
luilf of Illinois or any of the other states ,
but of the whole United States. IIo be *
longed no moro to Illinois than to Kan-
Has , where 75,000 soldioru would receive
the nowa of his nomination with shouts
of clndncsH. The speaker wan connnia-
untied by the Btulo of Kaunas to make
this nomination. [ Applnuso ] ,
juimi' HOUCIC ,
of Tennessee , in seconding the nomi'in-
lion said that while the convention hnd
not BOOH fit to nominate

speaker proceeded to pay a tribute to the
"Plumed Knight" of Maine. IIo hoped
the convention would come to n common
understanding and n roe me reor thd
second place on the ticket , Vt'.jon the
wires should transmit the news of the
nomination of General Lojjnn to the sol
dier boys of oait Tonnoseoo there would
