Va., May 16.?When the delegates to the State and Second District Republican Conventions, to be ] held here to-day, arrived on the various j trains hurt night, they found a brass band e out to greet them, and it has been mak- ^ ing g?x??l music ever since whenever ^ notliiftg else is going on. The local Republicans had appointed an efficient c committee of arrangements, with a large t and intelligent reception committee, of d which Mr. C. S. Braun was chairman, r and they did all they could to make things pleasant for their numerous visit- ] ore, and with a degree of success not to [ be expected when it is known how t crowded is the town and that it rained i lost night and this morning, and is again, zu it was yesterday at Littleton, raw ana c chilly except indoors by the tire. j The Armor}* hall, a neat and coramo- r dious structure, had been, by the liberali- f ty of Mr. C. S. Braun, its owner, an enterprising and public-spirited citizen of ( whom Fairmont is justly proud, deco- ] rated most beautifully with flowers and j flags inside, and a large flag was stretch- c ed across the street in front. * Inside pictures of Lincoln and Garfield and Ix)gan draped in mourning, and of Blaine ana urant ornamenuuiy draped with Hags, and other pictures of Wellington, Phil Sheridan, Sherman an<i other prominent leaders, civil and military, were liberally displayed; and flags, big and little, nicely grouped, Chine*; lanterns and other bright adornments, made the scene a gay one. The hall was crowded all day, many Udies, mostly young and all good looking, occupying seats in the gallery and on the platform during the afternoon session. THE CONVENTION. At half past eleven o'clock Chairman Cowden, of the State Committee, called the convention to order and introduced Uev. W. P. Wiley, of Fairmont, who opened the proceedings with prayer, making a petition which the delegates with difficulty restrained themselves from applauding. Its end was greeted with hearty aniens. Mr. Cowuen then named Hon. James I). Butt, of Jefferson county, as the temporary chairman. Mr. Butt said he had out ten minutes warning of the Committee's intention to call on him, and was not prepared to make a speech. He contrasted the campaign of '84 and its issues , with that of '88. und muni rod triumDh . for tin* Republican jwirty in West Virginia in this year of grace. ( For temporary secretary Mr. Hubbard, , of Wheeling, nominated Oliver S. Marshall, of Hancock county, and he was elected. Mr. Carter, a colored delegate from Berkeley county, rose, and after a graceful B|>eech, moved that the temporary organization be made permanent, but the motion was not seconded, and on motion committees were appointed on credentials, rules and order of business, permanent organization, Iwwis of representation and associations, each to consist of one member from each Senatorial district, a recess of fifteen minutes being taken to select the names of committeemen.

SYMPATHY FOR FLICK. Col. Jake Kemple offered the follow- t ng resolution, with an exceedingly neat a ind feeling introductory speech, and it Jj vas adopted by a rising vote, with n :heera: e Rewired, That the Republicans of iVest Virginia, in convention assembled r it Fairmont, send their heartfelt syrnpa- j hy an<l condolence to our true, tried j md noble friend aud advocate of the j irinciples of our partv, Hon.

Flick it once by telegraph, and thin was also idopted in the same manner as before. PROP. JONES, OK WHEELING. Mr. 0. W. 0. Hardman, of Tyler county, mggested that while the convention was vaiting for the Committee on Resolutions to report, Prof. James II. Jones, of Wheeling, be called on for an address. This was enough. The convention veiled "Jones" till the Professor had to respond. He modestly wanted to speak from his seat, but the delegates compelled tiim to Jake the stage, wberb he was again greeted with a perfect ovation. , Prof. Jones modestly ascribed the evi- < fences of favor which had been showered upon him to a desire to honor, not him * personally, but the race of people whom < lie represented. He then proceeded to 1 make as stirring a speech as he ever made, which fairly set the convention wild with alternate mirth and applause. ' He spoke of the Democrats as "brothers," I adding, "for we are all brethren this ' time of year, whether our hair is curly i or not.1' [Convulsive laughter.] He eloquently advocated protection and denounced free trade, and defended the Republican party from its traducers. 1 Then telling a story or two, he closed with a glowing review of the achievements of the Republican party. He retired amid another buret of thunderous applause. Cn.UftMAN MASON. tl^n T.vim W Mnsnn tint Pormnnnnt President, was then introduced, having been escorted to the platform by Messrs. Husted, of Clarksburg. Bowers, of Berkeley county, and White, of Marshall. Mr. Mason was warmly greeted, and made a strong and eloquent speech of only a few mitfutes' duration. TIIK RESOLUTIONS, Hon.C. M. Shinn, of Fairmont, .Secretary of the Committee on Resolutions, then read the report of the committee, as follows, the reading being punctuated by applause, which was especially hearty when the reference to Gen. OotT was read: | To the State Republican Convention: Your Committee on Resolutions begs leave to submit the following report: Reaffirming the principles of the Republican party and indorsing the theories of government as enunciated in its several national platforms, the Republicans of West Virginia, in convention assembled, declare: That is the first duty of good governI nml.n't tin* riolita nn<l rminint<? the interests of its own people. The largest diversity of industry is most productive of general prosperity. We therefore demand that the imposition of duties on foreign imports shall be made, not for revenue only, but that in raising the requisite revenues for the government, such duties shall be so levied us to afford security to our diversified industries and protection to the righto and wages of the laborer, to the end that active and intelligent labor, as well as capital, may have its just reward and the laboring mjn his full share in our national prosperity. Against the ao-callod economic system! of the Democratic party which would degrade our labor to the foreign standard, we enter our protest, snd we pledge ourselves to such a revision of the present laws restricting foreign immigration as will prevent the introduction of underpaid foreign labor to compete with our home labor. We challenge the wisdom of the present National administration in recommending through its chosen head the abolition or radical reduction of the tariff on coal, lumber, wool and salt, classed as "raw material"?four of the principal products of West Virginia? and we arraign the Democratic party for its failure to keep the pledges it made for a wise revision of the tariff laws, and for its inability to meet the needs of a great and growing people. we iavor me escadiisument 01? wise and judicious system of general education by adequate appropriations from the National revenues wherever the same is needed, and we denounce the Democratic party for its hostility to the same. Recognizing the ability and valuable services of our distinguished fellow citizen, the Hon. Nathan Goff, we recommend him to the Republican National Convention as a candidate for the otlice of Vice President. Respectfully submitted, C. F. Scott, C. M. Shi.v.v, Chairman. Secretary. The resolution in regard to foreign labor was prepared and submitted to the zommittee by a member of the Committee on Legislation of the Ohio Valley Trades and Labor Assembly. two delegates by acclamation. When nominations for delegates at ?rge were called for, Capt Dovener from n position on the platform, pre- \ tented the name of Mr. John Frew, of Dhio county, in a way which prequently j provoked applause. Mr. Frews long uid faithful career as a Republican was eloquently reviewed. Mr. Frew's name 1 vas also greeted with hearty applause, 1 md Mr. A. G. Daton,of Barbour county, 1 noved that he be nominated by accla- 1 nation. This motion was adopted with inthusiaqm and without a dissenting J roice. * Ex-Governor Pierpont congratulated ( he convention on the election of Mr. 1 r'rew, and then with an eloquent speech lominated Judge R. E. Berkshire, of B Monongalia county. 1 A motion to nominate by acclamation 1 van made bjr 1L S. White, of Marshall 1 ounty, but it was met with cries of "no, a io, no." Hon. John A. Campbell, of 1 iancock county, seconded the nomina- ' ion of Judge "Berkshire warmly, and e irged Judge Berkshire's nomination by * icclamation, and the question being * ailed for, the vote resulted in the elec- u ion, with only two or three dissenting 1 oices, Mr. Fust having declined to ? J low his name to bo presented under * he circumstances. 1 A CONTEST FROM KANAWHA* * T. II. B. Staggers named as the third ^ lelegate Judge James II. Brown, of s Canawha county, and Mr. 8. C. Burdett F lominated Col. T. B.Swann, of the same 1 ounty. Both names were applauded, ilr. Vandervort, of Wood county, quotng a remark of Mr. Burdett, that cumulates were always plenty in Kanawha, aid this was true; they were so numer- 2 ius that it was difficult to getenough men ti the county to place them before the \ onvention. Ho nominated Mr. A. F. i libbons, of Kanawha. Ex-Governor I 'ierpont seconded the nomination of j udge Brown. Mr. Hunted, of Parkers- > nirg, seconded the nomination of Mr. S iibbons. Mr. lteber, of the Charleston \Uite Tribune, seconded that of Judge i Jrown with an earnest speech. All of fi hese gentlemen spoke highly of all the v amlidates, anil gave reasons for their references. } Joe Marum, of Grafton, seconded the j lomination of Col. Swann. Mr. Marum, e ike Judge Berkshire in his speech v arlier in the session, raised a laugh by 3 ddressing the convention us "Genlomen of the jury." Gen. Brown, of ."aylor, repudiated Mr. Marum's re- c narks on behalf of Taylor county, and i nvored Judge Brown. ] .Steele Hawkins, of Kanawha, made a c attling speech, full of plain talk on be- ] lalf ol Col. Swann. Mr. Clifford, of } larrison. seconded Col. Swann's nom- a nation also. ] Through all these speeches tho recom- f Herniation of the Third district convenion that Judge Brown be chosen as del- 1 gate at large, figured prominently, and g fclr. Kearns,of Marion,now made a speech j n which he denounced such a resolu- < ion directed to one convention by anither convention as presumption and 1 'irau law." The vote was taken, and as it was eviIcnt that Col. Swann was elected by a mndsome majority, Judge Brown moved hat Col. Swunn be unanimously elected >y acclamation, and Mr. Gibbons, the >ther opposing candidate, seconding the notion, it was put and carried. TIIK FOURTH DELEGATE. As the fourth delegate, Mr. James B. Menager, of Pt. Pleasant, named as "a loble Union soldier boy," Charles B. Smith, of Parkersburg. Mr. Menagef laid the selection of Col. Swann, an exUonfederate, as one of the delegates, was an additional laurel on the brow of West Virginia Republicanism. Cant B. B. Dovener moved that Mr. Smith be elected by acclamation, and this was done unanimously. Mr. Smith ' tvus called out aud made an entertaining ind sensible speech of thanks. THE ALTERNATES. W. J. W. Cowden, of Ohio county, then nominated L. M. Wade, of Braxton county, as alternate at largo for the First district, and on motion of Mr. Daton, of Barbour, he was elected by acclamation. Mr. Wade, who is very tall, rose, and Chairman Mason said: "I want to explain that Mr. Wade is not standing on a chair." [Laughter.] Mr. Wade having been quoted as promising 100 additional votes from Braxton this year, said tluit he would scare them up. He was greeted with enthusiasm. Charles F. Teter, of the Second district, was nominated by Mr. U.S. Fleming, and unanimously elected. For the third Dr. Holt nominated Charles Elliott, of Webster county, who hus organized tive Republican clubs in his county. CaptaiirPoundatone nominrted Major John I. Hurst, of Upshur. Mr. Hus ted, of Harrison, seconded the nomination of Mr. Elliott and added his tribute to Elliott's good work for Republicanism in Webster. Dr. Holt added that Mr. Elliott was the first man who ever represented Webster county in a Republican convention. [Cheers.] Col. Kemple, of Ohio county, an<l Mr. Keber, of Kanawha, seconded Elliott's nomination, and Capt. Poundstone withdrawing the name of Maior Hurst, Mr. Elliott was elected by acclamation, lie appeared in the back of the convention in response to calls, and made a brief but felicitous speech. Mr. W. A. Howard, of Pt Pleasant, nominated Major Henry C. Flesher, of Jackson, and A. B. White, of Wood, eloquently seconded the nomination, which on motion ot Col. Sterling was made unanimous by acclamation. CoL Flesher, in response to culls, spoke a few words of thanks. THANKS AND FAREWELL. Calls for Kemple had the desired effect, and Col. Jake made a good speech, which was afterwards highly complimented on all sides. . Mr. W. P. Hubbard was called on per! sistently, but he said any man was an enemy of his who would insist on his talking after the glowing eloquence of Prof. Jones* the humor ol CoL Kemple, the graceful eloquence of Mr. Menager. I the words o! wisdom of Mr. Burdettand l ' the veritable feast of eloquence which all had enjoyed. Hon. John A. Campbell, of Hancock county, moved a vote of thank* to the citizens of Fairmont, "especially the ladies," for their hospitality and the unusual efforts they had made ro render the stay of the delegates in their town pleasant, and this was adopted with a sousing "aye," after which the convention adjourned with three cheers for Republican success in *88. Moat of the delegates leave for home this evening. Looking back over the convention, it is safe to say that a more notable one was never held in the State. The Ikrge attendance from distant parts of the btate, where no selfish interest was involved, and the hich representative character of the men wno composed the body, augur well for the result in the approaching campaign. The speeches were eloquent and sensible, the business done in a businnao i:i.A ??.. -n.l mmmtktna ohftllt thft affair was creditable to the deTegates, inspiring to the masses of the party, anil of grave import to the Democracy of the I Mountain State. Enthusiasm an?l good humor prevailed, and the interest* ofj the party dominated personal ambition and all other motives. w. s. r. SECOND DISTRICT CONVENTION*.

Mr. Dawson said le had no objection to Mineral county iroflting by her increased vote in '80, rhen the workinginen in the Elk Garten region stood by Flick?as they will tand by him again if nominated [Ajh dause]?but in*80 Preston was notable o get out her vote as she did in '84, and he would lose by this arrangement. A voice?She ought to get out her rote. The basis was finally made the higher 'ote cast in each county in '84 or '80.

Mr. Reynolds, of Mineral, nominated <Ir. John'Miller, of Keyser, of whose calacity and litness he spoke in the highst terms, saying as a Republican he k*as sound to the core and a hard fighter, dr. Miller was applauded. Mr. Mason seconded the nomination. T. H. B. Staggers, on behalf of Grant ounty, also seconded Mr. Miller's nomnation. He named over the ditTerent ^residential candidates, and all were heered. Preparing the crowd for Maine's name, he sprung on them A. (V. Campbell, of Wheeling, who was tlso applauded; and a moment later ilaine was named and the convention airly went wild. W. S. Meredith, of Marion, nominated I. K. Fast, of Monongalia, of whom he ipoke as a true and tried Republican, >opu!ar, reliable, worthy of this or any >ther honor. Mr. Dawson, of Preston, seconde<l Mr. bust's nomination.

Mr. Wier, of Mineral, moved that the delegates be instructed to vote for James G. Blaine. This was received with wild cheers, Hon. John W. Mason, as a friend of Mr. Blaine, and who was proud t.? KJo Mnn.l an.! .lannta/l oil his life, naked that the Convention might be satisfied to send delegates who would properly represent the sentiments of the. people of West Virginia, of whom.ninetenths were for Blaine. Hon. George Harmon, of Grant county, endorsed what Mr. Mason said, and Mr. Frank Cox, of Monongalia, also a warm supporter of Blaine, also spoke against instructing the delegates for anybody. His county, he said, was a Blaine county. Mr. Wier withdrew his motion to instruct, amid cheers. For alternates Mr. A. G. Dayton nominated Dr. T. F. Lanbam, of Jfewburg, Preston county. Mr. Butts, of Jefferson, named George W. Feidt, of Berkeley county, urring upon the convention the wisdom of encouraging the young Republicans of Berkeley county. Mr. Bntts made an effective and well considered speech. It was moved that those two candidates be elected by acclamation, which motion was unanimously adopted. Mr. W. M. 0. Dawson moved that the name of R. E. Fast be presented to the State convention as the choice of the Second district' as delegate at large. Messrs. T. M. Fleming and 8. P. McCormick opposed this, as also did Tom Staggers. Mr. Fast rose to a personal explanation, which was received with applause. He wanted to remind the gentleman from Preston (S. P.

The State and Congressional Nominating Conventions Called. Special Ditpatch to the InteMgencer. Fairmont, W. Va., May 16.?1The State Republican Executive Committee met here this forenoon and decided that the Republican Convention to nominate the Governor and other State officers, which it hail already been agreed should be held at Charleston, should meet on Wednewlay, August 22. The First District Republican Congressional Committee also met this forenoon, and decided to hold the First District Convention to nomiuate a Republican candidate for Congressman at Clarksburg, Wednesday, September 5. This date is just six day's after the meeting of the Democratic Congressional Convention. w. s. r. "THE STATESMAN FK03I ERIE." Congressman Dalscll Makes Short Work of Representative Scott. Washington', P. C., May 16.?In the House to-day Mr. Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, rose to correct, as he said, some gross misstatements that had been made on his district, and the illogical, inconsequential and absurd conclusions sought to be drawn from these statements, an<l resent the impudent intrusion into the private affairs of certain of his constituents. He said he found his tett in the very extraordinary screed read last Friday by the gentleman representing the Erie district of Pennsylvania. He said 'extraordinary' because for one reason, the gentleman saw tit therein to class himself with statesmen and at the same time time to characterize as a demagogue, every man of that very large and respectable class who did not believe that political econo .... ??.l ,1,., man from Erie (Mr. Scott) a statesman. The American people might safely be left to ascertain who was the "demagogue with his mouth filled with catchwords." When the gentleman's utterances on the pending bill were examined it was found that the "statesman from Erie" was the self-retained foe of raonoi>olies and trusts and the great enthusiastic champion of the wage worker and the industrial laborer. The gentleman asserted that the proposition that the manufactory gave the farmer a market "a fallacy and a fraud" and he illustrated his position by giving the case of a farmer near BraJdock in his (DalzeU's) district. The illustration given by the gentleman concerning the Edgar Thomson steel works contained not a line or letter consistent with the truth. The fanner near Braddock was no longer compelled to raise wheat and submit to the domination of Mar,k Iiine in London. The teeming population of the steel works furnished the farim*s;a market for products they would ndvfcr have sold before?a market for garden truck, vegetables, butter, milk and other things. If the statesman from Erie did not know that he was grossly ignorant. If he did not know it, it was because of moral strabismus. His illustration of the struggles of the farmer was sublimely grotesque. The farmer near Braddock who paid $100 an acre for his ground not long since sold II iur ?l,WU UD UCIV. lUV gCUllCUiOu had pictured that farmer groaning because he had te pay thirty-three cents a pound for a steel beam, but what the farmer wanted with the steel beam the statesman from Erie did not say, [Laughter on the Republican aide] and if he did want it perhaps he had a little out of the $1,000 he had cot for the last acre he had Hold. Mr. Dalzell said that Mr. Scott, in his speech, placed the price of steel roils at $37 50 when he had signed a report from the Ways and Means Committee stating it at $31 and had suppressed important matters as to the price of the rails. Continuing Mr. Dalzell maintained that Mr. Scott contradicted himself with respect to his figures upon the earnings I of coal miners. He (Dalzell) said he | had been informed to-day by an intelligent and honest miner that if any such wages were paid they were exceptional, That if they were paid at all they were paid at Scott llaven, in store orders upon the truck stores kept in violation of the laws of Pennsylvania, so that th? employer could rob his emplove [Applause on the ItepublicM side] by forcing them to sign an irotRlad agreement And here, Mr. Chainnan, I would leave him,with one friendly word of advice,foi which I charge him notning: It is not statesmanship to discuss the private affairs of our neighbors behind theii backs. , Mr. Scott?If the gentleman will go tc Scott Haven he will find 2,000 men then irhn tri.u-PL'klv receive in cash a dollaj a day more than the gentleman's friend/ are paid at the Carnegie steel works Turning to Dalxell he asked how man] men he had on his pay roll and to whoa he gave employment.

May 16.?Badges with 3 the name and portrait of Chauncey 1 Depew were fluttering in the wintry air 1 of this morning from the laplets of heavy 1 overcoats which shivering delegates were thoughtful enough to bring along. [ Handsome lithographs of the railroad President neatly rolled in heavy paste1 board are being distributed, and copies . of the same hang from every available spot in stores or hotel corriders. The t convention horizon which yesterday morning was not shadowed by a speck, which yesterday afternoon became a little clouded by vaporings of hostility to Senator Hiscock, is this morning yet more heavy with prospective complicar tions. The New York delegation this morning assembled in seclusion for the , express purpose of perfecting opposition to Senator Hiscock as a deleRate-at-iarge ' and in behalf of Levi P. Morton. Sher! idan Shook is at the head of the bolt against the ticket of many days' standing. Opposition to Hiscock is twofold. First, it is urged he has been honored enough in recent times, and second, that Senator Evarts, as a pillar of the party and as the senior United States Senator is entitled to recognition. If one of the two is to be elected delegateat-large it is claimed Mr. Evarts should be tuat one. If neither Senator is chosen then the New York men, with the exception of two district delegations, are for Morton with both Senators shelved. The delegation formally and definitely voiced their opposition to Senator Hiscock and during the recess they will confer with .Kings county to the end of forming a solid front against Hiscock. The Kings county people have agreed to go into such a conference, and here the matter rests. It is settled that Mr. Depew is not to be present, and Mr. Elliott F. Sheppard is to sit in his place. Finally at 12:20 Gen. Knapp, as chairman of the State Executive Committee, called the Convention to order. The call of Warner Miller's name was greeted with clapping of hands. When the Twenty-first New York District was a'uciiL'u mere iruuiu a muiui. vnouutcj M. Depew," shouted the secretary. There was no answer by a single voice, but a rattling about so shook the air that the gas gets Buttered and blinked in the din. The convention reassembled at 5 o'clock, and chose E. L. Pitts jjermanent chairman. On taking the chair, he said in part: "On this crisis of this Nation your action is of momentous importance, and I believe the battle is half won if all past bickerings are buried here. We shall in November snatch from power the great accident of 1884." The Committee on Resolutions then reported the platform. Gen. James Varnum arose and killed the opposition to Senator Hiscock by reading a telegram froufLevi P. Morton, asking that bis name be not used in the convention. Closely following him George Bliss arose, and without a speech placed in nomination for delegates at large Chauncey M. Depew, Frank Hiscock, Warner Miller and Thomas C. Piatt. By vociferous acclamation they were endorsed and elected by the convention. The district delegates had already been chosen at the district conventions. Electors at large will be named by the gubernatorial conventions which will meet hereafter. The Committee on Resolutions met during recess and considered the resolutions. George Bliss, chairman, offered this resolution, which was adopted for presentation to the convention: The Republicans of New York, in convention^assembled, certain that the National convention at Utiicago win present candidates for President and Vice President whose devotion to American ideas and tbe protection of labor, agriculture and manufactu:es will command the approval oi the people, pledge the Republican standard bearers in the National contest their united and zealous support and enter upon the canvass confident of victory. R/mlvM, That all questions relating to the policy of the Kepublican party as i to National and State policy be referred to the Republican National and State conventions respectively, to be held during the present year. CONNECTICUT FOR BLAINE. The State Convention Selects Delegate* to Chicago. New Havin, Conk., May 16.?The Republican Convention was called to order this morning at the Hyperian Theatre by Temporary Chairman John A. Tibbetts, and the temporary organization was made permanent. Mr. Tibbetts addressed the convention. He alluded to the great responsibility of Connecticut as a pivotal State and outlined the paramount issue as protection against the free trade message of Mr. Cleveland, by which the Democratic party must stand or fall. The real Republican platform would be the response to the "Presidential message that came across the ocean as swiftly as the telegraph could bring it" Allusions were also made to General Hawley and Senator Piatt as possible ??<i !?*? iminil rnnndl r\t nfln/lI.jnt ) Cbauncey M. Depew's name was ap? plauded almost as vociferously us r Blaine's. The speaker asserted that the i tariff must be revised to suit shifting . conditions and that the Democratic free r trade would pale because the American 1 workman reads and thinks for himself. Democratic civil service reform was denounced as a transparent fraud; that r- even the Mugwumps feel tad at heart t and sick at the stomach. If none of the - numerous Presidential candidates can s be nominated and the convention should n say to James G. Blaine, "You must 1 again be our standard bearer and this time we will carry it to the White House," there is not a Republican voter i who would not in his heart and soul say 1 amen. At the close of Mr. Tibbetts' speech t the election of delegates at large was begun and resulted as follows: Samuel I Tessender, of tStamfieldj Samuel L Warner, of Middletown; E. 8. Day, of . Colchester; E. S. Henry, of Rockvifle. I TIBU1.VU BKFCBUcm The Revolt Against lUhone May Split the Convention To-day. j Wamiixoto*, D.

Then q teems to be no doubt that there will tx is a split in thia convention and that twe r sets of delegates will be sent to Chicago 1 Senator Kiddleberger and ex-Congress it man John 8. Wise are the leaden of the ., anti-Mahone party and they enumerati | among their loUowen ex-Govemoi Cameron. D. Sheffield Lewis and his father, the eft-United States Senator; Mr. Frazier; Mr. Burke, of Alexandria; General V. D. Groner, of Norfolk; Jacob of Staunton; ex-Congress man BrW, of Petersburg; Dr. Frank King; C. H. Parsons, of Natural Bridge; and many others who have been very influential in the party. They say that nearly all the prominent Republicans in ? in the white counties are opposed to the Mahone system of party management , and will ioin the revolt. ' I The split will occur on the question of party organization and in resistance to forcing through a resolution requiring the delegates to Chicago to act under th J 1 unit rule, as Mahone is believed to contemplate. The plan of placing it in the l power of the chairman of the State Com- s ' mittee, who in this case is Mahone. to appoint all the Republican political commiuet'B in uie cuiic. uuu iuua wu* trol the whole machiuery.of the party, * the Riddleberger men say they never t will submit to. All but two or three of jj the Congressional districts have either . chosen delegates to Chicago or intend to do so. in accordance with the plan 'of * the National Convention. The ltiddle- E berger men say that Mohonc intends to have the delegates to the State Conven- ? tion from each Congressional district ' meet and choose the delegate to Chica- " go, und to tie the Virginia delegation up si with the unit rule. This the so-called ji "Vallev Republicans" will revolt against. Er-Congressman Wise is a very eu- . thusiastic Blaine man, and has been try- ti ing to arouse his associate classes in his 01 wing of the party to an endorsement of /( the Maine statesman. The men to whom : he appeals are nearly all Blaine men and J* strongly opposed to Sherman, but they JJj think the Virginia delegation will go to ? Chicago much stronger if not pledged to the support of any candidate than if instructed for anyone. An interesting time is expected at Petersburg on Thurs- , day. TUB D.MTED LABOR PARTY. ct Proceeding* of the National Convention at Cincinnati. Cincinnati, 0., May 10.?The United Labor Convention met in the Grand Iy Opera House to-day with about 100 dele- w gates present. The Committee on Kesolutions made an informal re|>ort on two a | points, the eight hour law for letter car- tl: riers and the redemption of Government [ bonds, but the report was tabled to allow Dr. McGlynn, from the Conference Committee to make his report. The doctor reported what has been substantially stated in a previous dispatch that the J" committee found the Union tabor Com- ? mittee disposed to a Union. (Cheers.) * ' He said he thought a union was feasi- "J ble so far, at least, as the two commit- ? tees were concerned, (cheers) and he }>i would add that it was dependent some- hi wnai upon uiu temper wiui wuim uiu two conventions received the partial report of their committees. There was A necessity for still further discussion. On motion the report of the commit- ^ tee was received and it was continued. There being no further business that . could with propriety be entertained un- ni; til the final report of the Committee on th Conference was received, the convention W( adjourned until 2 p. m. T At the evening session of the Union Labor Convention Mr. Weller, of low a, offered again his resolution in opposi- an tion to fusion with the Republican or fri Democratic parties. After a very ce long struggle the resolution wa? \V unanimously adopted. The National th Executive Committee was then named, it each State selecting its own member; the an convention however chose the chairman w and selected J. W. Goshorn, of Charles- in ton, \V. Va. He was authorized to CI select a Secretary and Treasury to be ap- lit proved by the committee. The conven- tli tion then went into the work of select- cc ing nominees for President and Vice ar President.

Jf The Invention Ten Yean Ago Perfected In ^ Recording and llepr jduclng. Nxw York, May 10.?At the Electric Club rooms Saturday night Edison gave an exhibition of his new and improved form of phonograph. In place of vc ?>w. r.f' .,?nM kUV bUUiUVIWUIIi UlttLUiUV Ul H.U JCIUO gj ago was a neat little instrument smaller than a type-writer, but suggesting a com- * promise between that familiar apparatus vc and the ordinary telegraph sounder, se key and electro-magnet. The sugges- gi tion of the type-writer is due to a hor- tii izontal cylinder about five inches long di by one and a half in diameter, covered tii with white wax. Partly covering this tv is a little arrangement of polished brass O resembling somewhat a pair of eye tl: glasses, with broad flat frames. In place tl of the glasses, however, are two dia- ci phragms, one of which is the recorder ei and the other the reproducer of speech. To the left of the cylinder is a small square l?ox containing the small electric motor, which is one of the chief improvements lately added by Mr. Edison. \\ Two or three little keys are convenient- . ly placed to start or stop the phonograph ir or to make it repeat from any desired di point. 1m This is what it looks like. Now for w its practical operation. A little key is w shifted on top of the box containing the si motor, and with a perfectly steady, uni- In form motion the cylinder begins to lo revolve. The operator then, in an ordi- ui nary tone of voice, speaks into the recorder eye of the brass spectacle or eyeglass. As he talks the diaphragm "*/ vibrates and a tiny metal point affixed to its under side begins to mark lines ^ of varying depth and regularity on the wax cylinder. When his * KH.V "is finished the operator turns a " key, which lift* the recorder out of the v; way and brings the reproducer into it# place; the cylinder is shifted back to its j1 starting point, the motor set running h and the delicate little membrane, which has, liko the recorder, a tiny point affixed to it, begins to give back in low 91 but clear and distinct tones the very words which have been spoken a few w moments before. The effect is startling, p for every peculiarity of speech, every rising or falling inflection, every pause, j1 even any temporary huskiness of tone is given back with marvelous fidelity. J| Of the ten instruments exhibited nine 11 were, for* convenience sake, limited to reproducing. Conversations, passages of piano music, solos on a cornet, a recitation by a well known humorist had ? been recorded on', various cylinders, and c over and over again the little instrument ground them out, to the wonderment of the listeners. The remaining phono- J graph was arranged for recording as ? well as reproducing, and * the visitors amused themselves by talk- V ing into it and then hearing * their own words ground out again. An . ingenious attachment was exhibited in , connection with this. A sharp, thin blade is attached to the "recorder" and as the cylinder revolves shaves off an indescribably thin layer of wax containing * ' the previous impression so that a clean, I i smooth surface is left for subsequent ? , conversations. This enables the cylinder . to be used over and over again, a matter } 5 of convenience chiefly, for the cost of a the new cylinder is the merest trifle and . . I ia I?m iml.H-d thnn that of th<? nntior nn . which a corrwiponding number o! words could he written. , G?.\sn Coxcibt at Seihert's Garden r to-night.
