Lynch Elected Temporary Chairman— Henderson Permanent Chairman—An Insulting Resolution Ofl'ered and With drawn—Gen. Sherman Refuses to be a Candidate. The Montana delegation presented the name of Lee Mantle for membership on the committees on permanent organiza tion and credentials and that of W. F. Sanders on rules and resolutions. The ubiquitous Women's Christian Temperance Union placed before the con vention a memorial urging that the presi dential nominee be pledged to national prohibition by character and public pledge. It was referred to the committee on rules. The election of Lynch as temporary chairman is not regarded as a test of strength. Many voted against him out of a principle to sustain the national com mittee, which according to precedent had nominated his opponent, Clayton, while many voted for Lynch with a view to the conciliation of the colored vote which he is believed to influence. Blaine and Lo jjan's friends though their nominee was defeated, are well pleased with the vote he received. Chicago, June 3, 8:45 p. m. —After a sharp discussion over the temporary chairmanship the roll of states was called for the election to the position of one or other of the two candidates—Powell Clayton Of Arkansas, the nominee of the convention, and who had publicly an nounced himself a Blaine worker, and John Lynch, of Mississippi, who was backed by the factions opposed to Blaine. The result of the roll call was the elec tion of Lynch by a vote of 481 out of 820. June 4, 10:85 a. m.—The Chicago Tribune of this morning says that the vote of yesterday shows that Blaine can hold the fort even against the combination which resorted to stratagem to defeat him in the preliminary organization. The Inter-Ocean says editorially that it is now plain that Arthur men constitute the most solidly disciplined group in llie conven tion; that Arthur is stronger to-day than any time since the canvass opeued that Logan or Edmunds can nominate him and that neither Logan, Harrison, Sherman or Edmunds are tending toward Biaine. The News discourses in much the same strain. Yellow fever has broken out at Guay ZL>, Mexico. 12. m.—The convention met at 11:15 a. m. A bitter tight was beguti in the convention shortly after assembling over a resolution introduced at the instance of Blaine's friends to the effect that all dele gates should support the nominee of the convention. A long and heated discus sion ensued and brought to their feet some of the ablest men in the convention. George 'William Curtis of New Y'ork, de nounced the resolution as an insult to the convention as a whole, and to the inde pendent sense of every member. 1:0G p. m. : —Hawkins of Tennessee, withdrew the objectionable resolution, peace was restored and all excitement sub sided. Gen. John B. Henderson of Missouri, was elected permanent chair man without opposition. In his address upon taking the chair he referred to Maine's favorite son and was greeted with tremendous cheers that continued fully five minutes. The convention then ad journed till 7 p. m. to allow the com mittee on credentials to prepare its report. Gen. Sherman has telegraphed from St. Louis to ex-Senator Henderson of Mis souri (chairman of the convention) that he will not accept the nomination as pres ident and would not accept the office if elected to it. * i it it S. to be if & tic in for DISTRICT COURT. a HON. JOHN O. COBURN PRESIDING; THEO. MUFFLY, CLERK*, E. M. GARD NER. DEPUTY CLERK; ANDREW F. BURLEIGH, DISTRICT ATTORNEY. Special Correspondence. Bozeman, June 8, 1884.—The follow ing were the proceedings of the district court yesterday : 1. T. C. Power & Co. vs. Jacob Gum. Demurrer to answer overruled* sustained as to counter claim. 2' John E. Dougherty vs. Bcnjah Morse et al; Morse and Pennell defaulted. 8. Territory vs. Seymore, Defendant, arraigned; takes time to [dead. 4. The case of the territory against Hayden under indictment for assault with intent to jrommit murder came to trial Michael Sam, Pat. Sain and Charles Cal lahan testified in behalf of the territory. Pat Sam testified that the stabbing might have been done with a stone. He seemed anxious to make a speech to the court blit was given to understand by district attor ney Burleigh that silence would be more agreeable to the court. Hayden testified in his defense that there were a number cf fellows together on the evening of the trouble; that they were «11 drunk; that he (Hayden) knew nothing of having used a knife until the next day when he was told so by friends; that the parties to the quarrel were good friends before and after the fracas. Tbe case submitted without argument. Jury re tumc<l ver,li< -' ,,f S 1 " 1 '? !lsS!,ult a,Hl battery and fined defendant $10. 5. George Gillespie, under indictment i for misdemeanor, who pleaded guilty on May 81st, received sentence to-day as follows: Fined $25 and imprisonment in jail two months. Judgment of restoration of $5 to Edward Sanders. G. W. T. Henderson says his real name is Walter T. Henderson. He was sentenced six months in jail and fined $500. 7. Henry Matson, indicted for an as sault with intent to inflict bodily injury, was arraigned and takes time to plead. 8. C. F. Saunders, indicted for utter ing a forged check, was arraigned. Says his name is Henry G. Raymond. Takes time to plead. lines appointed to defend. Defendants and bail were discharged in cases reported by grand jury as "no true bill." The Salt Lake Tribune commenting on the reported disagreements between the Oregon Railway & Navigation and the Northern Pacific companies says: The two companies worked in perfect harmony until the overthrow of Yillard. Since r then they have been ^rawing apart and it is whispered that the Central Pacific people, under the management of C. P. Huntington, are straining every nerve to absorb the old company or at least con solidate with it. In that event it will be absolutely necessary for the Northern Pa cific to complete its line through Wash ington territory to the Sound, and even then it will be liable to be troubled, for the Central Pacific has already a few* miles of road built east from the Sound, With the purchase of or consolidation with the O. N. & R. Company the Central would secure the roads up both the Wil lamette and Columbia and the beautiful fleet of ships belonging to tbe company; it would break the pool with the Northern Pacific and enable that company to really control the trade of Oregon more effectually than in the old days. With this accomp lished, so effectually would the C. P. and S. P. people control the trade of the coast that it would be almost a necessity for the Union Pacific to push through, at least their Short Line, to tide water ih the west. The effect on the people of Oregon it is hard to anticipate. The changes are that goods would be as now shipped as cheaply to Portland from the East as to San Fran cisco, but the local rates to there would be what they are in Nevada, and there would be serious complaints. Of course if the Central Pacific can secure the O. R. & N. projierty, unle&s the Northern Paid- j tic is backed by very strong men it will be in danger of falling into the same hands, for its through business will be ei£t off. and all that it will have to sustain it will bal tra de and atme ' through p:a - sengerg.
