C HICAGO CONVENTION.
Lynch Elected Temporary Chairman—

Insulting Resolution Ofl'ered and With

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
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
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
Yellow fever has broken out at Guay
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. *

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

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
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.
