NO FUSION. Tho Meeting of KepreienUtlTO Democrats Yesterday Decide Uaanlmoaily to Stand by tbe Party Colors—Earnest Debate in the Central Committee sad Adoption of tbe Advice which had been Solicited and Qivon—A Domociatlc Couuty Convention to be Called. A meeting uf the Democratic County Central Committee of Loa Angeles County was held yesterday at tlie County Court room in this city. The follow iug members respond ed to the roll call, viz.: M. J. New mark, Chairman, Stephen M. White, Secretary, James C. Kays, Treasurer, George Hews, J. G. Morgan, J. de Barth Shorb, Thom as McLaiu, R. M Barlium, Moye Wicks, T. J. Kerns. There was present also a large i:umber of prominent and repre sentative Democrats from various portions of the couuty who were requested to give their views as to the proper course to bo taken by tbe Committee, with reference to tiie selection of delegates to the ap proaching Constitutional Conven tion On motion of Col. Oodfiey it was Resolved, That the meeting rec ommend to the Democratic Couuty Committee to order a primaiy election to elect delegates to a County Convention, for the pur pose of nominating three Demo cratic candidates as delegates to the Convention to revlao the Con stitution. This motion was duly seconded and carried unanimously, the mem bers of tho Central Committee not voting. This action evidenced very clearly the general feeling of the Democracy of the couuty re garding the propriety of party nominations, particularly so as tbe Democrats who voted for tiie reso lution were from different sections uud had no previous interchange of views on the subject, besides there were among them men of positive ideas, such us Senator Smith, Hon. Asa Ellis, Hon. J. It. Holloway, Gen. J. R, McConncll, Gen. Stotie man, Capt. Thorn, Col. Hewitt, J. D. Young, Supervisors Hanuon ami Prager, Wallace Woodwortb, Capt. Bean, Dr. Edwards, A. B. Caldwell, Maj. Ross, C. M. Ben brook, Judge King, Sheriff Milch ell, Col. Godfrey aud many others equally as iutlueutiul aud well known. Upon the passage of the above resolution, it was resolved, on mo tion of Ju Ige Holloway, and after amendment made on motion of Judge King, that the meeting re commend 'hat the Democratic Couuty Convention to b» called in accordance with the resolution last adopted, elect the number of dele gates to which Los Angeles county may be entitled iv any Democratic State or District convention which may be held for the purpose of uomiuatiuc delegates at large to the Constitutional Convention. Carried. After this the general meeting adjourned and the Com mittee went into executive session, to act upon the recommendations of the meeting. At this adjourned meeting there were present the members of the Central Committee, whose names have been already given. We have beeu furnished a synop sis of the proceedings of the Com mittee, which is as follows: Tbe first business to which atten tion was directed was the re- commendatious made by tiie previous meeting; full discussion of the matter was bad. Mr. Shorb thought that it would be better not to make any party nominations, and that the whole question should be left to tbe people at large. Mr. Shorb gave many reasons in sup port of his theory. Mr. Newmark likewise considered it best not to put party candidates in the Held, for tbe reason that there were uo political results to follow the ac tion of the Constitutional Couven lion as far as known, and thut the sole aim of the people should be to elect the best men without regard to their political proclivities, Irom a purely partisan staudpoint, Mr. White, while doubling the policy ofthe conclusion arrived at by tlie general meeting, stated tbat he considered it his duty as a mem ber of the Committee to yield to tlie wishes of the majority of the Dem ocratic party, which the Central Committee is supposed to repre sent. Thut he considered that the gentlemen who bad just given formul expression to their views, fairly represented the prevailing sentiraeut of the Democracy of Loa Angeles county; that those gentle men without dissent bad made their recommendations as to the true policy of the Committee, ami that as far as he was coucerned he proposed to be guided by their opinion ami hence offered the fol lowing resolution: WiIEKtAS, a large number of represeutative Democrats of this couuty, who had been requested to give their views upon the subject, have so recommended, aud where as such appears to be tlie sentiment of tlie Democracy, therefore be it Resolved, That it Is the sense of the Democratic Central Commit tee of Los Angeles county, that the Democratic party make partisan nominations iv said county, for delegates to the Convention to re vise the Constitution of California. The merits of this resolution were fully cauvassed. Iv addition to tbe remarks above quoted, several members of the Committee gave ex pression to their opinions. Mr. Kerns said that bis constit uents were, he believed, in favor of party nominations. Mr. Barbam, Mr. Morgan aud Mr. McLaln were of the same opin ion regarding their Democratic neighbors. Mi. Wicks said his constituents abhorred Republican afHllalion, but beyond that he was not familiar with their, views. Mr, Hinds was personally opposed to a scrub race, but was not conver sant with the political ideas of the Democrats of his section, aud there fore wanted time. [Mr. Hinds being compelled to make the Wil mington train, left before the roll was called.] After a very exhaustive debate tbe previous question was called, and the resolution offered by Mr. White was carried by the follow ing vote: Ayes—White, Kays, Morgan, Kerns, McLain, Barham and Wicks; 7. Nayes— Newmark and Shorb; 2. Absent—Hinds and Ling; 2. Mr. Ling's absence was owing to sickness. Tbe discussion of tbe various questions which came before tbe Committee bad been so prolouged, the hour being late and several members of the Committee who reside in the country being com pelled to leave, an adjournment was bad until Saturday, May lltli, at 10 A. M. Board of Education. Saturday, May itb, Board of Education met in tbe rooms of the Commercial Bank. Present—Messrs. Kurtz, Bent, Lacy and Jackson. Minutes of last meeting read and approved.

We clip the following interesting talk with Dennis In regard lo the, Presidential vote of Florida from the Jacksonville correspondence of tho New York Herald of April 24th: Dennis, the Alcona "giant," reached the city this morning and was at once tukeu charge of by his republican friends. Your corres pondent so in obtained an Interview wllh mm. 11,•inns is a small, lair man, with positive manners and gieal fluency. He is ihe shrewd est republican politician in the Slate, and the best slump orator. He Is a mau of property and his word iv business transactions, is per lectly good. Though tricky iv pol itics he is personally popular with many democrats and is a hero iv his owu ranks. He boasts that he never broke bis word or went hack on a flieud In his life. DIPLOMATIC DENNIS. After he hud listened to mystery of tlie nulla prosequi of bis cases and bis giving Secretary of State Bloxbum his confession, lie said: lum not going 10 deny or ufllini anything about the statement or about Bloxham. Whatever I did with him was done In tlie strictest confidence, and even if lie has vio lated it I will not. As to the cases against me they were of no account. No lawyer would have culled them sound cases. They were ridiculous, and any democratic lawyer in the State will tell you so. Btl'l, I con fess I was anxious to have them quashed. Governor Drew had a casein Washington in which he was charged with timber depreda tion. He heard I had a good deal to do with the case, and he sent me word that he would use his Influ ence u> have my cases suspended. I understood this and came home. The nolle prosequi had not.ling to do With any political develop ment. COMING TO THK POINT. Donnis went ou to say: "1 don't mim! saying that I am certain the State of Florida went for Tilden on the face of the returns, and that he should have had it. I will go fur ther aud Bay there has uot beeu a time in the past three months when, if I bad been convinced that crush ing proof of the fact that Tilden carried the State would turn Hayes out and give Tilden his rights, I would not have gladly furnished such proof. I knew tbat If my proof went before Congress no mau could stand up and vote to keep Hayes in bis seat. I told 'Uncle Ben' (General Butler) what I could do, aud while he thinks Hayes should be turned out he thought it best to wait till nome action had been taken by Congress in the mat ter. I talked with Senator Hamlin about It also." PRESIDENT HAVES KNEW ALL. "Did the President know that you bad these facts in reserve?" "Of course he did, all the time. Noyes and tlie rest of them told him. I met him frequently and be always treated me very kindly, saying be had been told about me. He gave mc notes to the depart ments asking tbat I be given a place. I wanted to be an auditor, and I declined three places, holding one only a few weeks." "Why, then, do you oppose Hayes?" "Because lie is a traitor to the par y that put liim in, und treated my friends badly. As Coukliug says, if tlie country ouly knew Hayes as well as Congress does he would be despised on all sides. Noyes knew of every movement that was made in Florida and Hayes knew It through him. I know tliis to be true uud can show It when tlie time cornea. DID NOT TAKE A CONFESSION TO SARQENT. Concerning the rumors that he had gone to Sargent with a written confession, and had threatened its piiblicatinu if he was not provided for, he denied this, and said Sargent simply went us bis Mend to the administration ami stated that it was under obligations to hj.ru (Mr. Dennis), and suggested the pmlcy of meeting the obligations prompt ly. He said Sargent did not think the President could be turned out, but would favor it if it could be done. DENNIS FRIGHTENS NOYES. In a loug conversation with Den nis be went over with your corres pondent all the leading events of the Florida campaign and count, unit in almost every easo explained the method by which the Republi cans perfected their frauds. He was very much amused, aud laughed especially at old man Lot toustall, who thought he suw him ■hovlug money into the pocket of a witness in tbe canvassiug room, saying tiie fallow bud been paid for his ufildavit ten days before. His knowledge of thecotnpuigu is thor ough and complete, und ho can show every feature. He suys that if be had beeu foiceil to swear be fore the canvassing board he would have, told the truth,as he would not have sworn falsely ou any acsnunt. When Noyes pressed hi in to take the stand bo said, "if you are not prepared to give up your case, dou't force me on the staud." Noyes therefore Withdraw his re quest. ANOTHER JUDAS ISCARIOT. Dennis refuses to furuisli any written statement for publication tie says lie can satisfy the most in credulous when the time comes, but will wait until everything is ready. He is very positlvo in stat ing that an oustiug movement is mi loot, and his conversation shows that he believes it. He leaves for Washington, to-morrow. He was astonished to learn that tlie mut ter had all become public, and thinks it will hurt the c.iuse. He Is very bitter aud earuest, and says "Hayes is the worst man since Judus Iscariot." News Paragraphs. A paper down lv North Carolina feelingly inquires: "When will our people quit using tbat 'blarney' term ('Honorable,' as applied to members of tbe Legislature. It came in with the carpet-baggers, and it should go out with them. It is a poisonous exotic. It cau only tickle pudding-heads." The Chicago Times says: Jay Gould's lobby retired crest-fallen from the Senate, but tbey left tbe Capitol for their homes iv splendid equipages, while old uncles Thur man aud Edmunds walked aim in arm to tlie street car, aud muuuted that useful vehicle to aid them on their homeward way. A Washington correspondent writes that the prime,l reeorJ of the Indian ''ring's" villainy makes a huge volume of 6UO or 7UU puj;r*. Some of the testimony was so as tounding that it was deemed by Mr. Schurz impolitic to put it iv print. Frauds are disclosed ranging iv amount from $30 to $SOO,UUO in v single steal. The beauty of tbe bell-puuah tax is, suggests tbe Indianapolis New, that II is voluntary.
