Mr. OBsier, of Ut. Tammatay, obdeotedto the

Aby. who agdn spoe, 'urgingt that nothing
should be done by t e convention that might
destroy the harmo'ra of the party. and he
closed saying thsa he hoped theptoposition
would be defeated.
Mr. Wash Marks was of a similar opinion.
He thought the proposition, if adopted, would
legalie an aset that this convention had no
right to do. His (,he Second District delega
tion) had unanimously come to the conclusion
that they had no right to go into congressional
nominations.
Mr. Fitz -atrick. of Orleaps. said that no sur
prise could have attended the action of his
district (the Fir t), for one of the candidates
for the Federal House in that district had been
earnest in his solioitation for a nomination
whilst the gentleman who had obtained it h ,d
not been so solicitous. He would sty that the
First disriot had nominated i. L. OGbson,
The oppos tion had a right to object to nomi
nations but not to interfere with them after
they had been made. Gen. Gibson had already
carried the distriot three times before He was
of the opinion that the delegation had acted
strictly in accordance with the resolution of
the State OCntral (lommittee.
Mr. Fontonot-Has the First Oongressional
District a congressional committee?
Mr. Flitpatr'nk-No.
Mr. Moss s-Was there ever a basis of appor
tiotm,.nt mad, ?
Mr. Fi'zpatrick-No. Every gentleman from
New Orleans. he added, had agr ed to go
into the eleotion of p residential electors, and
yet nothing was said ab ut presilential ele-.
ters in the State Central Commkitee's resolu
tlons.
Pending the discussion, the frllowing was
offered as an amendment to the orlginal reso
lution:
"Provided, that this resolution shell not be
cons'rued so as tot ifPct any proceedings already
had by any eongresslonal district on matters
herein nawed: all snuch proceedings had belug
herebt ratifie."
Ater some wrangling, Mr. Cllnton of Tensas,
moved to strike out in the above resolution.
"all nunh proceedings had being hereby rail.
fi d." because he said he did not think the con
vention had anythina to do with the action of
the congressional istricts.
Mir Oauthreaux, of Orl aen, said that the so
tion of the Second Di-trict oaurus had been
unanimous in oopposition to congressional
nomlna ions, and on that account was opposed
to the ratdioation of the action of districts by
this no"vention.
"Bt." seld Mr. Robertson of BE.t Baton
Rouge. "Mr. Ollnton's amendment does away
with the ratifyinag portion of the proviso "
A short debate en ued between Mr. OIau'h
reaux and Mr. Rob..ertson on the construction
of the amenduent.
Mr. iobertson maintained that to adopt the
resolution without the amendment was to pro
voke discord in the oarty.
Mr. Lewis, of Orleans. said that the mntter
had not been properly put befor.' the conven
tton. The will of the people tad been referred
to on this floor, end thatl was exantly what the
minori'y of the First Dlst let claimed should be
observed. A technical opposition had been
made to the rendltg of the action of the Parlh
Committee of New Orleans in the matter. He
would now proceed t reed it (and he road the
DmonoanAT's report published above ) He held
that the Parish Committee had limited the work
to the selection of delegates to the Cincinnati
convention. He, like Mr. Fpi'patrick. was a
close friend of Gen. Gibson. atd nt had always
voted for len Gibson since he had come to live
in the district: but this had nothing to do with
the question before the convwntion. The qrns
tion ass whether the convention should allow
discord to occur in the ranks of the party. He
wanted the nominations to be made by dele
gatea who were authorized to not.
Mr. Fltzvatrlck-How did your delegation.
the sventn ward. vote In the district meeting?
Mr. Lewis-Six for Gibson and three blank.
but he thought that did not change the oques
tion.
Mr. Walton, of Concordia, now offered the
following as a substitute for the resolution and
amendment:
lResolred That it is the sense of this conven
tion that it is the duty, and that it is in the
power alone of each congressional district, to
call together and control its own conventions
and make nominations., over which this conven
tion bas no tontrol or authority.
Mr. Walton spoke in favor of his substitute.
Col. Collins. of the ninth ward. In answer to
Mr. Walton's remarks, said that when there
were contents in wards, a regular election, with
ballot-boxes, commislsioners, etc. were resort
ed to. In this case, however (except in two
wards). everybody being a Hancock man, the
delegJtes to this convention we ea chosen simply
at a general meeting of the ward wigwams.
Had there been any o .ntest or Intention to se
leot nominees for election to Congress. a formal
election would have taken place. In proof that
it was not intended to go into an election of
delegates to nominate Congressmen, he read a
fifth ward ticket. which was headed "To select
deiegates to the national convention."
Mr. Barrett. of the fifteenth ward of Algiers.
said that he and his colleagues were elec'ed to
select delegates to go to Cinclnnatl, and not to
nominate congression, I candidates. The chair
man of the fi at district delegation, he added
had himself this morning said that there had
b on no election for Congressman. He then
offered the following doeuments:

Mr. Adams. of Orleans, said that his side had
only done more than the other side had done.
His side had come to the conclusion that they
could nominate Congressmen, whilst the other
side had concluded that they could not.
Mr. Bower of Orleans. asked Mr. Adams
whether he (ar. Adams) was not the author of
the Parish Committee resolution.
The answer of Mr. Adams not being satisfao.
tory to Mr. Bower. the latter charged him with
evading the question.
Mr. Adams concluded by saying that if the
State Central Committee decided against his
side, then they would hold another election.
otherwise they would not.
After further debate a motion to table the
suostitute was lost on a oali by parishes, by a
vote of 116 yeas to 32~ rays.
The substitute was then adopted.
Mr. Robertson. of St. Landry. offered the fol
lowing:
Resolved. Thatthe basis of representation in
the several congressional convention. stall be
one for each 200 votes cast therein for Gov. W tliz.
and one for each fraction over one hundred.
The resolution was ruled out of order on the
point made by Mr Gauthreaux that under the
resolution of Mr. Walton. just adopted, the con
vention has no right to fix a basis of erepresen
tation.
Mr. Walton now offdred the following resolu
tion:
Resolved. That the Democracy of the State of
Louisiana, within constitutional limits, Im
poslng wise safeguards upon the treasury.
cordially and heartily indorse the report of the
Mistselepot Biver C mmleeission for the improve
ment of our great inland pea, to the end that
ease and safety shall be sesured to its naviga
tion, proper lacilities to its trade and com
meree, and the postal service, and protection
against its destructive tn )ods; and take this oc
casion to thank our Representatives in 'Con
gress for the energy and wisdom displayed by
them unon this great national question.
Which was unanimously adopted.
On motion of Mr. Trezsvant. of Franklin (af

The election of Judge Jack in the f urth dis

as to the eligibllity of a State officer as elector.

could not take any risks in the matter.
D r. B ,wer, of Orleans, to a qucstion of infor

qullled a person from being an elector; such
was his personal opinion.
Mr. Adam, of Orleans, then 'ook the floor and

DUFFEL VS. CHEEVERS.
Continuation of the Twenty-second
Judicial District Contestation.
Yesterday Judges J. D. Augustin and St. M.
Beraultof counsel for Judge John A. Cheev. re.
who had been ejoilned by II. L. Duffel. late
judge of the Fourth Judicial District Court
from taking his seat as judge of the Twenty.
second Judicial Dbtrict (under the new consti
tution). Initiated proceedings in the shape of a
rule under the act of 1873. addressed to Judae
Duffel, to show cause whysald Cheevers should
not be declared and decreed entitled to the
office of judge of the Twenty-second District
Court. and why he should not be inducted
therein and Immediately hold and exerclhe the
said office.
The rule was made returnable on the twenty
seventh Instant.
It is taken under the provision of the act of
1973. so well known sln-e the contest between
Justices Kennard and Morgan. of the Supreme
Court, in which case the act w,,s tested and
fullysustained as constitutional by the United
States Supreme Court. This act of 1873 pro
vides in substonee that whenever a person.
duly elected and promulgated as such, has re
oeivedhis commisslon and been qualified, the
former Incumbent must allow him to take his
office, pending any litigation In reference to the
rtght of th. commissioned party.
It further provides that if the former Incum
bent refuses to give up the office the party
elected and commlssioned can take a rule be
fore any comoetent court of the adjoining dis.
trict,or the Superior District Court of the par
ish of Orleans, for him to show ceuso why the
party onmmissioned should not Immediately
be tnst-lledl and Inducted into offic-.
The Suverlor District Court htvlt g been abol
Ishedi since that law. counsel for Judge Cheevers
took the rule before Hon. Michael Harn. the
Ijudge of the adiotuing Twenty-second Judicial
District.
The ule is made returnable for the twenty
seventh of April. because having been filed ,n
the thirteenth it mset, under the law of 1875.
not bih answerab e before the twenty-first of
April. but the time was extend-ed to the twenty.
seventh. It is reported that Judge Dnffel, who
Is In this city, has manifested his disposition to
accept service of the rule and have an immedi

What the Other DistriotsWill Do.
A portion of the delegates of the First Con.
gresslonal D'strlct to the late Democratic Con
vention, having decided upon gooing into the
election of a candidate for representative to the
lower House of Congress. and nt minated Gen.
Gibson for the position, and the Third Congres
sional Distric delegates having nomnloated the
Hon. John 8. Bilitu as the candidate for that
district, there will naturally be some curiosity
to know what the remaining districts are going
to do.
As far as could be asnertained last night it
appears that, the H, oond District delegates will
not make a nomtnitl n. Out have organized a
congressional co,..mittee and will make ar
rangements to have a representa ion elected
from each parish, and each ward of the city of
New Orleans. belonging to the district, to as
semble at some future day in Carrollton to
select a candidate.
The Fourth Distrint 'delegates, un'er the

NOT ON THE BILLS.
A New Feature in the Play on the
Academy Boards.
Last night at the Academy of Music, while the
second act of the play was in progress, a new
as well as a horrifying feature was Introduced.
which was as surprising to the onst and man
sagrs as to the audience. Miss Evelyn, as the
Wild Rloss of iucatan, had just marde her ap
pearance in the seoon't act when a man, with a
terrible thud, fell at her feIt from the "flles"
above, justln front of the foot-lights.
At first all was excitment. as it was sup
posed that the scene-Shilter had. while attenil
leg to his duties. accidentally missed his foot
ing and hba fallen ot the stage. Hardly had
the man fallen than the curtain was lowered.
but it was instantly raised and the play went
on,
By this time the man who had met with the
accl tent was carried out of the theatre, placed
in a cab and sent to the station-house and
thence to his residencs. His name was It. J.
Brown. stage managet,r of the Grand Opera
House.
It avprars that he was somewhat mentally
deranLged, and Ibhoring under non impression
that one James Foley was followiig him with
mnrnerous intent, entered the th ttre by a
private entrance, ind going on the etage
cllmbed up into the flIts, from whence he fell,

A 'ilhree.Cornered Race.
[Cleveland Herald. Ret.]
You see this is to be a three-cornered fight.
Grant is the strongest one man for the Re
publican nomination, but two men may have
more strength between them than he has.
Blaine and tiherman together may be able to
beat Grant on the first ballot, and then fight
it out between themselves. Unless Grant has
half the convention he has not and ought not
to be nominated. Unless he can be nomin
ated on the ilst ballot, he cannot be nomin
ated at all.
