tha Chicago convcntion of 188S was crcr
prosontod to tho party'u national dele
gatca beforo. Ita most promincnt lead
orhad deolinod to lead, and yet his
hoata of followers Btill longed for his
leaderahip. He in rctirement, othere
triod and truo, had como to tho front
at candidatoa for tho leadorship. To
aelect from among tbese tlie one who
should be bcat flttod to lcad the party to
victory next Novcmber waa surely a
difflcult work. In the faco of tliis difli
culty it la no wouder that all eyea wero
turned toward him who had refused the
honore of lcadcrsblp. To call on him,
however, was impossible. Not with
honor could ho lake up the atandard be
had voluntarily committed to tho hands
of othera. Af ter hia lottora from Flor
ence and Paris, Mr. Illalne was pro
cluded from accepting tho nomination
of the oarty, 88 its candidato for the
Prosidcncy, except on tlieoxtraordlnary
oontlngency of tho voluntary withdraw
al of all othera who, liy rcason of theso
lottera, wero eeeking it. Thia contin
gency did not hsppen; it 'hardly could
havo been brought about by any
efforta of the moat ekillful political
managcra. That feature of tho case
having been diaposed of, it remained
for the conventlon to chooseacandidate
for tho Prosidency. New York, tho
Empiro Stato, furnishcd a consplcuous
one, indeed n euperb one, in tho person
of Chauncey M. Depew. NoonohaBro
turned from that convcntion to the peo
ple who eent him, with hlghor honors
than tbis brilliant and vcrsatilo man.
But for hia connection with a vaet rail
road Bystem.ho would havo been cbosen.
That fact defeated him and riglitly too,
for he could not havo polled the voto in
Novomber that surely would have been
hia, oxcept for that connection. The un-
reasonmg prejudico against corporationa
ia 80 atrong among Workingmen and
Wcstern Grangers, that the convention
waa not warranted in taking cven this
man, who haa proved himeolf ono of the
flrmest frienda of labor in tho country.
Next iu promlnence waa that great
flnancler, statcsman and eenator, John
Shorman of Ohio. Between him and
Benjarain Ilarrison it surely waa no easy
mattor to choose, and tho choico did ac
tually bang in thebalanco for somo timo,
Tho latter, however, lived in a doubtful
state and, the Democratio party having
takcn neither of itscandldates from that
state, the convention made no mistako
in taking Mr. Ilarrison. Indianais made

There were other namea bcfore tho
convention no less conspicuoua in tho
Nation, Ilawley, Allison, Algcr, Phelpa,
Ingalis, but for reasona not nccessary to
mention here, they could not be sclcctod
as thoso of candidates at this time. That
of Ilarrison was cbosen as the one most
likely to bring success noxt fall. A law
yer of great ability, a soldier who won
his honors on tho flold of battle, a Sona
tor of tho Unlted States, who repreeent
ed his State with conspicuous fldellty
