In closing his re marks placing hi nomination Gover nor Cleveland, Lockwood spoke as follows: A little more than three j years ago I had the honor at the city ' of Buffalo to present the name of this ' same gentleman for the office of may Only j or of that city.

The peoolc looked lor a man who would represent the coutrory, and without any hesita tion they named G rover Cleveland as the man. At this noiut there was a wild burst , of applause.

THURMAN OAININQ. Ciiicaoo, July 9. The situation as it appears at midnight Is still more favorable for Thurman, notwithstand ing the claims of the Cleveland men, which arc loud and long. California presented his name and Arkansas has decided to swing in for the red bin dann. Ohio is now unanimous. Cleve land is ouly allowed 389 votes all told. Cleveland's torces recognize the fact that the sooner the convention gets to balloting the better will be his chances. They are beginning to ask what Cleve land's sentiments are. Nobody knows much about him, except so fur as his action iu the gubernatorial chair indicates his view, and the only conclusion that can be drawn from his gubernatorial acts is that his sympathies arc with corporations and iu favor of all kinds of monopolies. His foes sav that no one realfv knows BUTLER'S PLANK. Chicago, July 9. The Daily News reports the following as General But ler's tariff plank : Resolved, That customs duties should be levied for the purpose of raising revenue for the nccessarv ex penses of the government, and to pro tect and foster American industries j and protect American labor; that raw inatenal manufactured in this country should come in free, as should also the necessaries which arc used on the poor man's table, such as tea, coffee, etc., aud that the tariff ou luxuries should be placed at the highest limit. THE KANSAS DELEGATION. Chicago, July 9 In the Kansas delegation there are five votes for Bayard, which under the unit rule would be given to Cleveland, because fourteen of tho delegates voted for Cleveland. There is scarcely a state which is unanimous for any one can didate, yet the majority cast the en tire vote for their man. THE CHOLERA MENT STILL TINUES. Magistrate Shot Driving.

Thurman, who en. tcred the hall previous to a call to or der, was loudly cheered. There was no little, uneasiness over the rumor that Tamm.-iuv had resolved not to ' give up i he fight, but to re-opeu tho question of tho unit rule on some sub sidiary motion.

The Chair The question recurs up on the adoption of thertport of the committee on credentials. The question was put, and the re port adopted amid loud cheers. Hcenan, of Minnesota, sent up the following resolution: Resolved, That the immediate re duction of the federal revenue to an amount not greater than is needed for the expenses of the government is an imperative necessity. The reduc tion should be accomplished in such a manner as to afford the greatest re lief to tnx payers by the abolition of duties upon" the "raw materials of manufacturers of articles of supreme necessity cutcring into the cost of liv ing, and by a steady approach to a purely rcvenuo basis of taxation as rapidly as may be accomplished with out embarrass'ment of the business- of the country by certain or uncertain "charges. Applause. Wade Hampton, of South Carolina, offered a resolution as follows: Whereas, I he chairman ot the na tional Democratic convention commit tee is necessarily entrusted with large power iu the arrangement and conduct of the political campaign, that upon his knowledge, prudence and ability the successful execution oi ttio plans McDonald developed no strength, and (hat a portion of Massachusetts and and Bayard's strength in the South could be relied upon. The open at tack made on Cleveland by Tam many, however, is being urged as an argument iu Cleveland's favor and these Ilinols delegates who have been undecided were announced for Cleveland to-night. It is urged upon the western and southern delegates that Tammany should not be allowed terri- l0 poini oui mo rwau ior uiu na with tional democracy. On the other hand two more votes iu the Iowa delegation have fallen off from Cleveland and while, a &trong effort is being made with the delegation I to vote solidly on the first ballot for Cleveland it is now stated that he will onlv have nineteen votes. The air of the Cleveland people, however, is one of irrcat confidence They sav, it essary, they can nominate him on first hallot, and certainly on the sec ond. That ali of Pennsylvania and a portion of New Jersey will come to him when the sign is given. The Bayard and McDouald people arc proceeding very quietly and noth ing new lias been outwardly develop- i cd in their canvass. I The statement that Butler was out of the race was denied by J ml go Ab bott, the chairmai of tho Massachu setts delegation.

A Chicago special to the Kansas City Times makes up the followiug estimates of the situation: The Cleveland men are highlv elated over their success in beating Johu Kelley, by securing the indorsement of the convention in sus taining the unit rule. In the New York delegation they confidently as sert that their favorite candidate is now certain of the nomination, and that the opposition will be unable to ' combine on auy candidate against him. There is danger, howcver,thut import ant errors may be made by the over- ! confident Cleveland men in formiug their estimate of his strength. The affirmative vote on the unit rule was only 462 which the opposition claims represents the whole of Cleveland's strength iu the convention In this, of course, is in cluded a large number of votes from several stales having candidates of their own, as Pennsylvania, Delaware, Ohio and Indiana, whose votes de ducted will very largely reduce Cleve land's total; so much so that his op- ponent's claim he can never secure the coveted two thiids vote necessary to nominate him. lie may also lose some votes on account of the feeling aroused by the arbitrary action or the chair man of the New York delegation iu cn ' forcing the unit rule and casting the seventy-two votes against Grady's amendment. Notwithstanding these elements of weakness, the Cleveland boom is liable to grow as steadily as Blaine's did. The grand welcome extended Thur man in tho convention has cucouraged the Ohio men' to greater efforts iu his behalf. I do not regard his cindidacy as daugerous, but in Bayaid I recog nize the most formidable candidate Tgainst the popular Cleveland He is gaining ground, and if the convention should be prolonged to a bitter light he may be settled oiuis the candidate i toilefcat the New York candidate. ' Iu the event of a failure bv Clove-, laud's forces to muster sufficient strength to be successful, and if Thur- i man, Bayard and McDonald should ! decline to pool their issues, a dark horse is probable. The supporters of Field, Randall, Slocum and Carlisle are hoping for a wrangle of this kind, i believing that if it occur they can succeed. It is gratifying in all this violent political strife to know that that any of the candidates named are strong aud pure men, each with a blameless record and capable of lead ing Democracy on to victory. While ",ie John Kelly is deeply mortified at his n(!c" defeat, a united party may be relied 1 ",c on iu yew York should Cleveland be nominated. Tho canvass made by his friends has been a remarkable one. "It has not bocn over two weeks,-' said Hon. Johu B. Fellows of New York to-night, "since we insti gated the movement that promises so brilliantly to rule in Guv. Cleveland's nomination, lie has been very indif ferent and his succe-s is due wholly lo the efforts of his friends." Probably his great strength is due to the endorsement of the revered Tildcn more than to any other came. Without this, and with the violent Tammany opposition, the votes from other state- could ncter have been secured.
