Chicago, 111, Juno 7.?Private dispjtcbfs
ItBi night aud the Chicago
Dswipapers of tlifa morning have told
ui how tho glorious nows was received
in Weflt Virginia. If thoso of us aro to bo
' envied who witneMed that splendid tumult
of excitemcnt when our favorite's nomination
was soured, eo are .thoso who were
3t boraa to rcceivo the glad tidings and
take part in the popular rejoicing. It'was
1 a proud day fcr tho KepublicRca of West'
Virginia, this climax of their hope and
-?I- ?flW?innatoeiideavor. The friends
aiuru/,?"
at home, whoae hearts were with us, beating
nervously I am sure, can not (ally appreciate
tho position West Virginia has
filled in tho eyo of this convention. The
Ume ol Blaine's triumph in our mountain
State bad gono ubroad. Ii was known that
West Virginia stood alone ei tho one
Southern Stato which had no.oflicoholder
in ils delegation and' had
come to Chicago eolid for Blaino." These
conspicuous facta were taken 21 evidences
of a live, healthy, aygrefsive Republican
party in West Virginia. More than this, it
*H9 understood that West Virginia, again
unlike most of the Southern States, would
probably have some electoral votes to give
to the ticket which that Convention was
. about to make. These considerations made
our little band tho observed of all observers.
ATTENTIONS TO WEST VIRGINIANS.
Polite attentions poured in from every
eide. The untruthful reports put out by
the lUgiiter, through its own columns and in
the shape of special dispatches to other
newapapers, in the hope of diocrcditiEg
tbo Blaine triumph iu West Virginia, had
-given florae comfort to tbo Arthur men. As
eoon fla our advauco guard arrived the Arthur
prospectors, ebrev/d and jolly fellows
irom New York, began to make theinsolvn
aujreeable to West Virginians. They bed
eoine of our delegates checked off es
shaky, others as Arthur men under cover,
who would break in time to be ol service to
the President. They thought it
oiJy friendly to give na timely
watting - of their coming triumph,
and to extend a cordial invitation to como
in early and enjoy tbo rich ripe fruiti of
victory. I made bold to eay to those earnest
but misguided men, co early as Saturday,
lirat, that their favorite was already
beaten, second, that there was no sentiment
in West Virginia to back anArther
vote, and, conclusively, I ventured the pafo
prediction that from first to lest West yirginia
would bo found solid on every ballot i
?nd every test question. In /act you will

dolegation took no vote in caucus to decide ,
its action; every inun knew what tlio constituency
ba:& of him expected, and that
he did. It woo tho solidity of common
consent giving loyal exprtsaion to tho Banlirnent
at home.
NO BIX'OND CnOICK.
Tliere never was a tinftj when the Wot .
Virginia dolegation considered the matter ,
of a second choice. Individual delegates i
may or may not have contemplated a timo ;
when Blaine would ho out of the race; if
eo they displayed tho good judgement to \
keep it to themselves. When asked, aa i
they frequently were, who was tho second
choice ot West Virginia, the invariable
reply "West Virginia has' no second
choice. Wecamo here to nominate Blaine '
and we are going to nominate him. After '
Uih? we'll support a good man for the Bee*
oud place." So it wn said by tho opposition,
"West Virginia w a hard nut to ,
crack." Ann so it seemed. Our line never
wavered. These traitors in the camp, who
wereeuppoBtd lo have been Einuggled in.
didn't turn up. I supposo they are still
emuggled away somewhere in the JUgister
office. It ia unnecessary now to renjind our
friends that the precautions taken to insure
cxprenion of tho popular will in Went
Virginia were not watted, but have borne
good fruit. They have enabled West Virginia
to hold a proudly conspicuous place
in tbo mofit distinctively popular convention
the Uspublican party haa ever had, to
go through that convention with flying
colore, and to return home with her cap
full of waving plumes. Sho achieved all
that auv State could have achieved. ?She
pve to her favorito as many votes and as
Joyal a fcupport as ho received from his own
bt&te.
OCOl) WEST VIBOINIA WORK,
It wes not only in tho voting that West
Virginia came to tho front. She did hard,
Ell'ectiva work. At Blaine headquarters
the peculiar circumatanccs surrounding our
delegation, heretoforo spoken of, mado a
deep imprt.saion, anil important work was
intrusted to "West Virginia, not only to the
delegates but to tb*7 activoBlainomen who
had come along to lenil their aid. Delegations
wero vleited and {vrreatled with, individual
delegates were talked to, argued
with, and urged to got on board be/ore tho
Kanfjplank wan pulled in. It could easily
be shown where eoine good work was put
in by Wnt Virginia, but these minor details
are now swallowed up in tho groat
triumph. It ia to be aaid for the delegates
that, in and out of tho convention, they
bore themselves with credit to their party
and their Btato. There waa no apeechmaki.ng
from them, but if that had beoo
ueceash.ry West Virginia would have responded
to the call. The idea of the Blaine
campaign waa voting, not talking, and on
the Ulaine side the effort waa to reduce
talk to a minimum. Aa chairman of the
delegation and member of the Cominitteo
on Oredontiala Dovener did good service
and fiatitfled his colleague*; Church, on

THB COLORED MAN IN CO.NVKNTION.
There are some general features of thi
convention worthy of note, Aa an Arner
icon who believes in the political equality
of all Americans, I am proud of the col
ored men who uatin this convention. The]
were well'dretsjd, welUbehaved, and wher
one of them took tho floor to addrcBa thi
convention no wasnatenea to wltu respect
ful attention. More than this, tho colored
men-acquitted -themselves well in theii
speeches and their points of order. Except
when tho accomplished Governor Lone, o;
Massachusetts, or Major McKinley, of Ohio
sat temporarily, the ohair waa never bc
well tilled as by Lyncb, the Temporar)
Chairman, of Misairaippi. Lynch haa i
good presence, is wolt-vcreed in parlla
mentary practice, haa a keen eye, un
bounded courage, and a voice thai
commando attention and respect. Ho is s
tine speaker, a man of force and easy man'
ner. He will be electcd to Congress thii
fall if the Bourbons don't count him out
A good deal has been said about colored
men being purchasable commodities in
politics. Uortainly no man ever received
moro loyal aupport than President Arthui
xecoived from the colored r?rt5n. who comt
here for him. It was needless to argue
with them. They had come for Arthui
and they were going to stay with him
while he had a chance. They were nearlj
all on that side, but that takes nothing
from tho manliness of their bahavior.
no dauk 1ioksb p0e81ble.
This was emphatically not a dark horse
Convention. The Arthur men anil thi
Blaine men'were from the first opposed tc
any way out of the woods that pointed to c
man who could not be considered as fair]j
in the field. The Logan men and moat o!
tho Sherman men, who wero at heart foi
Blaine, wore of like mind. The George
William Curtis?Carl Schutz independentii,
who rallied around Edmunds, would
have taken up any man, however obscure,
to beat Blaine and Arthur. This independent
olement wes s'rong enough to de
feat the choico of the National Committee
for temporary chairman, for .on this it wae
able to mnke a great combination, bul
there its power ended. ... X
To illustrate how strong WW the opposition
to i dark horse, I am able to state on
authority that if the time had come when,
Arthur being out of the ifcht, Blaine hadj
needed that help to nominate him* the
Maine statesmen would have received the
help of the Presidents friends from New
York city-?determined /nen, practical
politician?, who tfid all that men could dc
for their candidate. Ai'.er this you will

Qiesippi, which never gave filaino more
than iwo votes, her sixteen other going
to Arthur, would have gone solidly to
Blaine rather than to a dark horae. "We
are tired cI d&jk bcrsee," said Lynch to me;
aDdcx-Senator Bnui3 8{iid amen. It was
the Eame with other strong Arthur delegations.
The independents of New York and
New Ejjglanjl tried a dark horee dodge with
Cfeneral Sherman as the man, bnt the Arthur
men and the Blaino men smiled and
went on. The sentiment was too strong in
favor of a Somebody.
TUB SECOND TLADE.
Before the Convention met .the second
placo was conceded to Robert Lincoln,
Everybody thought he would get it, becauce
everybody paid ho would. How did
it happen that bis boom was so suddenly
and completely flattened oui? It was unrlf\MitnArl
' Vi r* m Altl/1 Mrtf nAAnni iVtA
ucioiumi luut iiu wuuiu xiuii tuu
place. Sat that waa not the ?ej?son. His
Stato did not present him. That woo pot
the reaepn. There wss one feeling pervading
that Convention r-r to have the
strongest ticket ever presented by the Re*
publican party, head and tail of first??ate
material, either man fit to be a President.
Illinois wanted Logan. The Convention
v?.l?ite4 him. Would he accept? That
was all. kike JJje greart big man that he ip,
John A. Logan was not above taking the
second-place with the first American of his
time. Grcsham was Buofeen oi ai ?tub to
the Aithur whale, botthe Arthur men took
Logan as faet as they could get on thor foet.
Logan was an inspiration. If the ticket
couljd be strengthed Logan strengthens it.
"PPSINBRS INTERESTS."
Those "business interests" which came
on from New York to dajtsle ti?p convention
soon discovered that they had no more
weight"here than a fly on a part wheel. Jf
they did anything for the President they
dill him harm. Delegates who are not en.
gaged m Wall street or in the importftting
trade resented the interference of their
theatrical display. Thejre were a good
many plain business wen in the' convention
who were not voting that ticket and
they did not take kindly to the sirs of superior
authority that tne "bu3ioe33 interests"
were putting on. A New York
muo, himself largely engaged in
busineta enterpriEee, said to' me: "The
New York men who favor Blaine represent
vastly greater business interests than
these geni lumen, but they are not importera
and Wall street speculators. \)'e can
raiso for Blafne all the money that will be
needed for legitimato ejfpopBes." J had a
cbatwitha Uhicago business man representing
one of the largest houses in ibline
In th'o world. Ho paid: "Nine tenths of
the bufltneai R)en of Chicago are for Blaine.
ami the eame is trgo of the great aorthwtst.
We can raise all tbe ujoney that we
shall need for campaign expanses." ?t \yap
my good!fortune .to talk yvith a vory
intolliizimtworkingmau who is prominently
identiflad with labor intoteeig, "If the
'business men' of New York won't contribute,"
said this working man, "the workmen
of the country will. They love Blaino
and know be is their friend. Yep, and
we'll raise money for him from men who
have voted tbo Democratic tiefcot up to
thie time." I think we shall Dot be embarratBed
on this wore. We don't aoed a
"bar'l" to carry Blaino through; I an? confident
that a "bar'l" cannot defeat him.

London, June 7.?Mr. Thomas Burt, who
represents Morpeth in the House of Commons,
and who ia perhaps the only true
exponent of labor in that body, expressed
himself vory froely to-day to your correspondent
reading tho present great depression
in the shipping industry in tho
North of England.
"The ship-building trade in the North is
practically at a standstill," said Mr. Burt,
'and there probably never has been a timo
n its history whoa the outlook for an immovement
was as indefinite and uncom- ,
orting as it is at present. Whole .
leets of large stoamors are lying J

liatresE?actual want of food aud Bbelter. I 1
oean?Ib fearful in tbo extreme, Tho la or
organizations, usually strong, as a rule,
a tho North, are wholly unablo to answer /
be calls upon them for relief, thoso lew
lembera who have managod to retain c
rork being unablo to meet the demands
ihich are made upon them. The distress
1 Sunderland is particularly marked. 1
lany hitherto well-to-do families have had R
> apply to the authorities for relief." I
In answer to a question regarding the j
Dal and iron trade of Northumberland, _
lr. Burt said that there was not bo much 0
) complain of iu that direction. Tho trade I
as fairly good, but not nearly so brisk sb h
u6uslly is at this period of the year. At
urham tho depression in -the coal trade
as very serious. " Thousands wero also nn- P
mploVcd in that diatrictj'vand the suffer- ?
igs of the working people appualedstrong- ri
rto the sensibilities of the-bonevolenU P.
ho iron trade on tho Teela was also in a P
iid way. The few who wore at present a
tnployed worked only" halftime and eked ?
ut a miserable existence on the pittance "
iuh afforded. M
Mr. Burt, in reply to a question as to tho n
