The informal ballot resulted as follows:

Without any further formality the con

At this point Mr. McCarthy moved if or a \
recess of fifteen minutes for consultation,
but it was opposed by a number of dele

Upon the announcement of the result of
the 41st ballot motions were made for. a
recess for a half hoar, and amendments
snade to adjourn until 9 a. m. to-morrow
((to-day) and until 7 p. m. Considerable
confusion, all cf a goo£ natured kind pre
vailed for a few moments, but the conven-'
tion finally took a recess until 7 p. m., the;
understanding being that the delegates!
would hold a private meeting of a half
hour for consultation.
Evening Session.
The delegates reassembled at 7 o'clock
and immediately went into secret session,
all. outsiders, even reporters, being exclud
ed. ■ It ' was learnei, however, that the
friends of Capt. Clark made a proposition
that both Clark and Burke shonld with
draw and leave e?.ch delegate to vole: for
any other candidate of his choice. . This
Mr. Burke's friends declined, and the con
sultation ended. ' ■;.";," ■ :^:;";;
. When the doors were thrown open .there
was a grand rush into the. court room, and
it was some time before Chairman Bice
could obtain order, bnt he finally succeed
ed, when James King obtained the floor
and stated that Capt. Clark's friends had
endeavored to effect a compromise in . the
interest of the party, and the balance of
the ticket, but without avail, and he there
fore withdrew Capt. Clark's name and
advocated the nomination of . Henry
O'Gorman. " ' . ';
Mr. Ropp seconded the movement amid
considerable excitement, which was finally
quelled by the chairman, and the conven
tion proceeded to the

j Before the vote was ' announced Mr. O.
O. Cullen, who had voted for Olivier, arose
and desired to change his vote to O'Gorman,
thus giving Judge O'Gorman the requsite
number of thirty-one to nominate.
Mr. P. <£. Eagan strenously objected to
this kind of proceedure and he changed
his vote from O'Gorman to Burke, thus
defeating the nomination on this ballot,
; Considerable confusion ensued which
was anally quieted by a decision to take
another ballot, which was done with tne
wing result:
O'Gorman 35; Burke 2&; Olivier 1;
Casey 1.
The announcement of the vote was re
ceived with loud applause and the nomin
ation of Judge O'€rorman was made unan
. imous with loud cheers and calls for O'Gor •
man. V'^ki ?-'S:J~v.
Judge O'Gorman soon made kis appear
ance, and as he stepped within the
railing he was greeted with three rousing
cheers. As soon as . he could make his i
voice heard, he said that all who knew him
were aware that be could not make a
speech. He could however thank his
friends for the work of favor which they
had conferred upon him in the domination
which he scarcely expected. He was glad
of it, however, and if he lived until the day
of election he would nee all honorable
means to be elected. (Loud applause.)
For this office Mr. Werner Ropp nomi
nated Prof. T. J. Kerker, and paid him a
high compliment as an honorable and up
right man, and one whose qualifications
admirably fitted him for the 'discharge of
the duties eC the office. He moved that
the nomination bennade by acclamation, ;
which motion was carried with a hurrah. —-|
In response to loud calls Mr. Kerker i
came forward .and in a neat and feeling:
speech accepted -the nomination,and prom-'
ised that if elected he would discharge the I
duties of the office to the best of his abili-'
ty, and he hoped- to the satisfaction, of the'
tax payers of the county. (Applause.)
For -this office.D. L. Curtice, the present
incumbent, was • nominated by acclama- '<
These was some little struggle over the •
candidacy for this office. The candidates
placed in nomination were W. B. McGrorty.
H. W.. <!orey,'.C, M. McCarthy and F. E. ;
Wilde. The first ballot resulted as .fol
Mo£rorty,.2€- Corey, 24: McCarthy, 7.:

The name of. Mr. Wilde was withdrawn
after the first ballot, and the second stood:

There are three county commissionereTto

selected J. F.'Mcintosh and Patrick Norris

[Special Telegram to the Globe.}
t Chicago, Oct. ; 4.—The excitement on
'change was of a personal character. The
announcement of the unexpected nomina
tion for congressman by the First district
Republicans of the president of the board
of trade, created a profound.-sensation,
and congratulations were showered upon
the head of the fortunate. chief executive.
Nobody apprehended the result, Mr. Dun
ham being merely incidentally mentioned
as a fit man for the place, but ; never un
derstood to be in the field. A warm fight
had been waged by three competitors, but
it was believed the present incumbent,
River and Harbor Pirate Aldrich, had a
walkaway. R. W. Dunham is a
native of Massachusetts, having been born
in Berkshire county, March 21, 1838. In
his nineteenth .year he entered the office
of the Massachusetts Life insurance com
pany as a clerk. He continued he em
ployment of the company in Massachu
setts until 1857, when he arrived in Chi
cago to take charge of the books of the
western department of the company, ceas
ing his connection with ehemin I860. . He
then entered the.grain and provision com
mission house of T. J. Bronsen, of the old
Arm of Walker, Bronson & Co., in which
•Chas. H. .and Geo. Walker, .prominent in
Chicago business circles, . were part
ners. He remained .in a clerical
capacity with this firm until
December. .1871. When .ihe present firm
of Wm. Young & Co. was .formed, he be
came managing partner of the firm in
Chicago, the other members of tiie firm re
siding in Milwaukee, and has conducted
the business of this .large firm in Chicago
ever since its foundation, In January last
Mr. Dunham was elected president of the
Chicago board of trade, receiving a major
ity over two competitors, on the first day
of the election. -Two"years ago' Mr. Dun
ham was a delegate in Aldrich's behalf
from'.the Fourth ward, becoming the mem
ber from that ward of .the congressional
central committee. ... At . the meet
ing of the central committee
about three weeks ago' I he w to elected
chairman, and the .duty of formulating
and publishing the -call for the convention
and of joallingjit to ordert herefore devolv
ed upon him. Otherwise than; this he
took almost no part in .the contest. While
his name, has been. used in association with
the office during the rather-spirited contest
for the:nomination, he was never seriously!
regarded as ,a candidate; and only when
about to call the convention to order was
he informed that. the delegation had resol
ved toipresent his name. Some had pre
viously .inquired -whether he would
accept : a nomination, and had been
told that he was a candidate' in
no sense of -.the term, but if given an un
sought nomination .he would . feel that he
could not refuse to .run. Mr. Dunham's
associations :have usually, been of the most
intelligent and .therefore liberal elements
of the party. He.has taken strong grounds
•in favor «of ..the HennepincanaLproject and
other public improvements, but never here
tofore held or sought public office. In ap
pearance Mr. Dunham is of medium height
and .compact build, dark of .complexion
: and with heavy black .hair' and. moustache
And dark eyes. He is a Jive . and self-re
Jiant man and will make an able and en
ergetic congressman. As the ,-. dis
trict is irredeemably Republican
he is sure of election. It is a clear case of
the office seeking .the. man—a : rarity in
these latter daps. When his name was pre
sented to the convention there was a break
immediately in his favor, and Jie was nom
inated on the first formal ballot amid great
applause. Like most, men «of i decided
character, Mr. Dunham has warm friends
and bitter enemies. He wanted the presi
dency of the board of trade for .two years,
but did not attempt the run until' he
thought he had a good fighting chance. It
was a warm struggle, one of his competit
ors then being Deacon . Hobbs,
one of the most solid men
on tbe board. An old member
remembers that away back in 1861, when
he wanted to be elected Master , of Orient
al lodge o£ Masons, he fought a hard''and
seemingly hopeless : battle, and came - out
Ahead. The board of trade men will sap
port him now very solidly, believing their
organization and the industry it represents
ought to , have an advocate in congress.
When he entered the chamber to-day. they
were vociferous in " their ' applause. " Mr. ,
Dunham is an enthusiastic civil' service re
former and anti-boss man, - be v it also said 1
to his favor. We predict that if he does
not rack among the foremost orators, he
will 'take a prominent v position '^ in the
solid committee work, '-' and^-f* his
vote will be recorded on the side of 'prog-'
ress and reform. "•""*' '(''^ J .'"'' ■ **"■** j

hibit of stock on hand as posted yesterday
shows that there are 5,658 barrels of pork,
39,702 tierces of contract lard,
and 4,734,133 pounds of short
ribs. The people who are interested most
largely in hog products had figured these
stocks down fine enough' to satisfy them
selves long ago.' They kept track of what
was shipped out, and as nearly as they
could of what was shipped in and made.
There was consequently no good reason
why the prices of : hog product should ad

The cause of the strength of ,
is stated to be the reason that Liverpool
had a firmer tone, and private advices from
the other side that the supply of Danubian
corn is falling off, which would give a
mueh firmer tone in England but for the
demoralization here. With this our own
receipts fell off to the low,
point of .142 car loads and
none by canal, while- news from conntry
points was to the effect that a good many
of them had -sent in all the old corn they
could sweep-up. The result was a very
strong feeling and big buying. One firm
bought about.2,000,000 bushels for next
month, and several others bought round
lots, while the smaller shorts .were scared
into filling. . (There was, however, a liberal
unloading by parties who had bought at
lower agues last week. There was a good
shipping demand, but buyers were limited
to figures which acted as a drag on the ad
vance in futures. It was vigorously ru
mored around .that there is a strong
combinations .formed to control the mark
et for November,, but this was in turn dis
\ missed. i~,y.]
A party In the wheat trade says that
there cannot be much strength in : the deal
so long as ihe folks are afraid that Mc-
Geoch will throw a big lot whenever he
deems it most to his . advantage. ' There is
no incentive to carry wheat so long as the
November premium is less than storage
charges. Uncle Peter it is reported is
amusing himself while his September
shorts are settling by baying red . winter,
thereby o*naing that maoket to climb.
Messrs.- L. Everingham <fc Co's
report on the corn crop situation for
the week ending September 30
says ' the farmers are disposed to hold
wheat and oats. The first, it says, has left
a decided mark npon the corn crop, par
ticularly that planted late, the injury being
most noticeable new in northern and cen
tral Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Minne
sota. In all these states there will be more
or less soft corn. The late planted fields
have been killed, and ' the growth of ' the
early stopped. Reports from the best corn
counties in northern Illinois estimate the
crop at twenty bushels; per acre," and if
future reports do not average better than
this, the northern part of the state cannot
be expected to produce more corn - than in
1881. '*,.*'-,.' 'V***

New Yobk, Oct. 4.—The indications are
that the speculators who led the decline
have secured the stocks that they wanted,
and are now ready, or nearly so, for an ad
vance in prices. These are the indications;
whether they are misleading or not re
mains to be seen. The Gould stocks and
Vanderbilt stocks, the Villard stocks, Erie
and Denver, were all notably strong in the
last hour, and the highest prices of the
day were paid.
The gossip of the street is that the Gould
brokers are not bulllish; that they say that
the rally may continue a little longer, but
that there will be heavy declines during
the next few days. They do not believe
that the Metropolitan difficulty has been
settled, or that the Union Pacific is a safe
7 per cent, stock. They think Mr. Gould
is well out of the market, and does
not . intend to recover his
holdings'; that the Germans are more bul
lish in speech and action; that' the Villard
brokers have been moderate.. buyers of
Northern Pacific preferred to-day, and that
Vanderbilt brokers are fairly bullish. The
most confident buyers are the old opera
tors, who prof to act on general prin
ciples. They say that the situation does
not warrant extended liquidation, and that
stocks bought at these prices will
show. handsome profits before the snow
flies. The shrewdest room traders incline
to the opinion that the market is harden-
4ng. - "Boston buying, supposed to be in
the Burlington & Quincy interest, explains
the • advance . in Denver j to-day," said a
broker, " a prominent broker has an order
to buy 10,000 shares for Boston account at
55." '
Western Union stock was closely watched
this morning. With -the exception of a
sharp rally it was thought that Mr. Pen
der's presence was in favor of the bulls,
and that Mr. Gould was buying. , Reports
that the associated press business .was to
be withdrawn were circulated, but had
little effect. Officers of the company
sharply deny the truth of the reports,
and say ' that " " no difficulty
whatever exists between the Associated
Press and - the Western Union company.
Mr. Pender has been the guest of the of
ficers of the company this morning.
They ;', are understood to be pre
paring a surprise for him in telegraphy.
"The raid on Louisville was continued,"
said; an operator identified with the
property, "and was successful until
several very large buying orders came , in
and turned the tide. Nothing could be
easier than to put the stock up five points
i on the immense short interest. I hear on
excellent authority, despite the denials of
insiders, that Mr. Huntington and Gould
will be given places as representatives in
the directory. If it is found on Wednes
day that this interest has' gone into
the property, nothing can prevent
a rise to 80. I am convinced that the new
stock has been sold in the market, and that
the announcement will soon be made, The
Keene interest has bought . heavily and I
am positive of purchases yesterday and to
day for the Gould party." . *;..-' r;: -.^v v ' 5 j

A Suit to Determine the Ownership of a
Part ef the Palmer House Site in Chi*
cago. i2'-'-:T
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
. Chicago, Oct. 4.—-Judge Jameson was
engaged to-day in hearing a very curious
and interesting chancery suit in which
Potter Palmer is complainent,! and Jno.
Traynor and his wife Bridget Traynor, re
spondents, and which involved a part of
the land on which the Palmer house stands.
In June, 1870, Palmer entered into a writ
ton contract with Traynor, the consider
ation of which was $500 cash, according
to which Traynor, within one month, if
Palmer found the title all right, should
convey by warranty deed to Palmer for
$34,500 cash, a lot twenty feet front on
State street and about 170 feet deep. The
title was examined and found satisfactory,'
the money was paid and the deed executed.
In 1875 A. H. Burley, the city comptroller,
notified Palmer that the city taxes on that
lot for 1869 and 1870, amounting to $505,

had not been paid; that the lot had been
sold to pay them; that he had bought it in
for the city, and that it must be redeemed
before October 27, 1875. ; Traynor was
seen and promised te redeem it, but never ;
did, and Palmer had to redeem the taxes
and other expenses amounting to 633.
Traynor was then ' asked * to refund the
money to Palmer, but refused, and brought
suit against him for it in the circuit court
and got judgment again?t,infl8>7, for $681,
including interest. -On- the trial of
the ' case Palmer • was dumbfounded
at ■ " Traynor defending himself 1
on the ground that the deed he gave Pal
mer contained no covenant of warranty so
far as he (Traynor) was concerned. Palmer
then thought he would for the : first time
since he bought the land, seven years ago,
take a look at the deed that Traynor had
given him. On examining that document
he found 'feveral minor errors, but the
main defect was in the opening words of
the covenant of warranty, whieh should
begin, "and the said John Traynor, party
of the first part, for himself, his heirs, ex
ecutors, and administrators, doth covenant
etc." The word "himself'had been omitted.
Nevertheless • he beat Traynor on the
- "suit, but Traynor took the case
to the supreme court, and the supreme
court reversed the judgment and ordered a
new trial on the ground that the word
"himself" did not appear in the covenant
of warranty. In February, 1878,therefore,
Palmer filed his bill in the superior court,
praying for an injunction staying the re
trial of the suit in the circuit court, and
that Traynor be decreed to reform the
deed, or execute a new one in conformity
with the written contract. In the bill he
says that real estate was enormously high
in 1870, and still he paid Traynor more
than the ruling price, because he
needed the ground for his hotel. He says
also that since purchasing the land he
has erected $200,000 worth of improve
ments on it. In his answer Traynor says
that he is and was a blacksmith, and knew
all about shoeing horses, but nothing
about contracts or deeds. He signed the
contract for a deed without understanding
what was in it, but he 1 knows ; that-> at the
consummation of the sale Palmer .waived
the contract, and made a' sale without
reference to it. Palmer reported- that: the
title had been examined and was satis
factory, and presented to Traynor, con
trary to the custom, a deed which had been
drawn up by Palmer's attorney, and there- .
upon Traynor and bis wife signed the
deed and gave it back to Palmer.: He
calls attention to the fact that
the deed contains no blank where it
is claimed the word "himself" should have
been inserted, but that the scrivener had
purposely and elaborately spread out the .
words "his heirs" so as to fill it. He
claims, therefore, that he had no idea of
giving Palmer a warranty deed, and
Palmer knew very well he was not receiv
: ngone, and was no- entitled to one ac
1 cording to the final understanding.
