Tbe calls of lt5C, ltMX) and 1804 and al other down to the prcent date were tbe same in Ibis re Hixict as the calls of this year, and all were adopted with a purpose to remove all doubts and nitike district representa l on a principle that could not be con troverted or disputed. Tlie committee nlso say tnnt the state con veal ions have in almost everv ease decided ItiRt tlie cungiessioual dUj-icU should have rep- rcseuialton in tlie national convention, as they have elected them. The rights of representatives so elected have ever been ItKMAKUKD AS 8AC1LKD and should uot be invaded fur the first lioie. The committee declares that the pu-nose of the convention is to select a candidate most likely to he elected, and lua nearer we get to tiie true leeltngol tt.c people, tiie wiser anu saler will tie tb selection. Statu conventions may send delega es tu a national convention who o not represent the leelings of the pco- ; -, liicu 111 rw: autic cuu veil nous luilll. : 1 well select all the deh'jrates Irom a sin-'le district in the state.

This was freely admitted bv friends uf Uie contestants la-fore the com mittee. The convention at this point had not previously been made by friends of the Palmer House delegation The cum miUije justify tho boll chiefly on this ground. They then allude to the act of Ihe stale convention in instructing (tele crates to vote tor liraut, aud claim that ue state convention was competent to so struct. I be argument is strong for sii' ti right tu tuu convention as against m sulci instructions. liie l. talt c;ite was discussed more briefly but a conclusion is reached in fa vor of the contestants. The West Virginia case is considered with the same result. The reports dif- feiently signed, some of the minority do not sign the report ou eiu.hc.iw. tlieir conclusion is that the regularly elected and sitting members should retain their seats, and that the others should uot. Mr. Conger then preseuted the correct ed roil ot members. Mr. Cessna, of Pennsylvpoia, moved that the majority report should be di vided into live gcne-al divisions, and that the convention now consider Ala bama. Mr. Conger' said the committee had divided tbe report into eleven parts. Mr. Cessna moved that those cases up on wh'cli all the members of the commit. tee agreed should be passed upon by ac clamation. - While tliere should lie discussion only in fuur points tbe Alabama cases, . ie t .tots cases, tue West Virginia "."! : . u tlie Utah cases there wes some dis sioa as ta the roll of members which ... . Conger pice ited, and that geutle m n pe -ceded to enumerate alllhose It-colore contested cases, which the commit ee without division, repotted unanimously to be agieed upon. The only disputed points were as to the del egaies from tbe first Alabama district, from the ninth Illinois district, the wo-t Virginia disuict and tlie. Utah . state. These were liie only points to be consid ered by the convention. - .: IXMI AS OBJECTS. Senator.Xiogaa raised an objection to tbe assettion in tlie majority report tbat the Illinois delegates at large were con t ted. He considered it a reflection on tue delegates, end now learned for the first time that tbere had been a contest of these seats. As a icpr -tentative of r. great st.e, he was entitled to fair tteat uieiit at the bands of this convention. Mr. Cessna moved to amend his mo. lion.- . . . . Dr. King Six divisions instead of five. Tbe change being in order to bring the Kansas' case before the boose, as the minority rejiort made no recom mendations. . . . Mr. Sharpe, of New York, moved to strike off the reference in the majoiity report to the delegates at large from Illi nois. . Mr. Conger said that Logan '-. ad either in: understood or not beaid l,: n on that M):nt. He regretted that tbe senator hrd suspected that he would throw discredit upon him in the repoit. He referred in most complimentary terms to General Jjn 'ua as a soldier, legislaUir and man. Conger indulged io some lively sulli. : at the expense of General Logan, which met with hearty appreciation from the galleries. . Senator Logan asked why the contest was made mention of against the dele gates at large in Illinois, and no mention was made of any other contest as to dele gates at large. Mi. Cessna said because the scats of no oi'itr delegates at large were contests. Tue committee decided, however, that the delegates at large from Illinois were as much entitled to scats as any other de legates at large. LOO AN KTILX.

Mr. Sbarpe's motion was withdrawn, and Mr. Conger's motion, as amended by 31 r. Cessna, was adopted. Mr Sliarpe then renewed his motion, and after some parliamentary questions had been raised. Mr. llaymond of Califor nia, speaking on the motion, said there had been honest query and doubt as to whether there ever bad been a legal state Call and see them. convention in Illinois, aud whether there were any legal delegates at large from Illinois. If Mr. Loganhad ever heard of the contest, he might well be pleased with the efforts of some men who ap peared as counsel for him without his consent. Mr. Logan claimed that the ftate of Illinois was attacked. The sen ator of late has la-en too apt to confouud himself with the state of Illinois. There .: s some honest doubt whether it was I ;e state of Illinois that held the recent convention or whether it was John A. Logan. He rbferred to some indignities bcaiied upon the contestant delegates at Spriugtield. Under the rules in vogue iu that city Hone of the delegates at large from Illinois would bet-ntitled to vote in this convention.

Mr. Conger said The convention has adopted part of the re port 011 credentials in relation to the delegates rrom Louisiana. That delegp. lion not having had seats in the conven tion, I move that the delegates udmi eii be uow notified that they can have sea s 011 the ll.Mir of the convention. The chair I think the motion un necessary; and the delegation from Ixniisiana are entitled to seats in the con vention, as of right. The question is on the adoption of so much of the reiiort in relation to the state of Alabama. BEN IIAHRISON, of Indiana, said before entering upon the discussion of this question : "I think the convention should fix some liuiita tion of time for its consideration, jap. plause for the purpose of bringing this matter definitely before the convention. I move that mm hour be-al lowed to the consideration of tho question of contests from tbe state of Arkansas. Cries of "Too long." It is suggested around me that halt' an hour is sufficient, and I modify my motion and move that half an hour be given to its discussion, and at tbe end of tbat time tbe convention pro ceed to vote upon tbe report." (Applause.) Mr. Pixley, ot California, said I will s.-cond lhat motion as made. We, of l aliloraia, are becoming exceedingly impatient at these delays, and arc becom ing suspicious that they are made for a purimse. Mr. Conkling I shall vote with irreat pleasure for that resolution, whatever it may be, wbichwill enable us at the earl lest moment to nroceed and finiuli tl. real business of tbe convention. And therefore. Mr. Chairman, I venture to suggest as an amendment to the resolu tion, itiat tlie gentleman from Indiana prescribe so much time fur one aide and so much time fur the other, and let tbe Uutc be equal. Generi 1 Harrison Your suggestion mee s my entire approval. I was simp v providing for a limit of time, and I thought that of course it would be tairly divided between Uie two sides. . Mr. C4)iiJiig 1 venture to suo-nrot to my honorable friend to so modify his n-wjiuuiiu as 10 prcscrirje certain min utes say twenty a side. ten. Harrison All nirht : I m-rni tbe amendment of tbe gentleman front new ioru. twill so modifv mv mo tion tbat forty minutes shall be allowed tlie for consideration of the n uest ion which shall lie divided into twenty min otes to contestants and twentv minutes to sitting delegates. Conkling lt is suggested bv gentle men around me tbat although forty min utes may be enough for the Alabama case it is hoped that this will not tie taken as a precedent lor the precise num ber of moments, which may be asked fur other cases. Mr. Turner Mr. Chairman, as a mem. ber of the Alabama delegation, and ac quainted with facia which will lie pre. senled to the convention, I do not think twenty minutes upon each side will be sufficient, and appex.1 to the gentlemen win maue tne original motion to allow half an hour fur erch side.
