Convention .then adjourned to 8 p. m. tine 6, 10 p. m.—Gen, John A. Lo of Illinois, was nominated by ac clamation for the vice-presidency. ISlaine'K Biography. James Gillespie J Blaine was bom in Pennsylvania January 21, 1830, and is therefore fifty-four years old. Several years of his early life was spent in Lan caster, Ohio, in the family of Gen. Thomas Ewing, with whom Gen. Sherman also lived at one time. Ills education was ac quired at Washington college, from which he graduated in 1847.He was a school teacher a few years and in 1853 he be came thp editor of a paper at Kennebec, Maine. The far cast state his been his home from that time forward and has been the field cf all his honors. In 1858, when editor of Portland paper,he was elected to the state legislature and served four years in that position, during two of which jjie was speaker of the assembly. His service in the state body was terminated by his elec tion to congress in 1802, where he quickly became distinguished as an able debater and a rare parliamentarian. In 1869 he was honored by election as speaker which he held during the term and succeeded in saddling himself with those charges of corruption which have been thrown at him ever since, and which will be made to do constant service during the coming campaign. In 1877 he entered the sen ate, and one of his first votes in that body was cast against the Electoral Commission, as being unconstitutional. Under Gar field's brief administration Blaine was sec retary of state and a potent factor in the government as a whole. "With Garfield's death Blaine retired and has since busied himself with writing his "Twenty-Years in Congress"—a work which has added greatly to his fortune and will be no in aificant item in the total of his future fame. Blaine has iong had an ambition to be president. In 1876 he first came to the front as a prominent candidate. But during their congressional service he had incurred Roscoc Conkling's enmity by in flicting some wound to the latter's sensi tive personal feelings—calling him a tur vey-gobbler or some such matter. What ever was the cause Conkling brought the entire weight of his great influence against the man from Maine to prevent him from gaining the nomination ; yet so strong was the latter that Conkling could only com iass the nomination of II B. Hayes, a sort of nobody who was never elected to the presidency though he held the seat four years. Blaine at that that time got 351 votes out of 378 necessary to a choice, iayes was nominated on the seventh ballot having worked up to 384 on that ballot from 61 on the first. In 1880 there was another struggle by Blaine against the Conkling faction with Gen. Grant jus their figure head. Conkling was still pow erful but not sufficiently so to secure the nomination of Grtmt though he held the votes of the noble "306" against all odds. 31aine got 284 votes on the first ballot out of a necessary 378, but did uot advance jeyorul that strength. Garfield was brought to the front as a compromise can dinate and the nomination and election were given him. How he ruled during a few months, how he received the assassin's bullet, how he suffered and finally died are fresh in the memory of all who can read what is here written. Blaine was secretary of state during the seven months' administration and handled the department with no uncertain grasp. Now in 1884 conies the "plumed knight" once more with the demand that the republic an convention nominate and the j »copie elect him to the presidency. In the first move he has been successful; in the sec ond the result remains to l»e worked out amid the utmost uncertainty. No Conk J. sy the be of in of for On are pay to barr and the this the ling was in the convention to oppose him ; on the contrary "Lord Roscoe's" emissaries were on the ground working for their chief's former enemy and the assertion may lie ventured that by Conkling*s ]>ermission Blaine was nominated. The contest this time was a short one. The first ballot gave Blaine 334^ ; the fourth gave him 544 when only 410 wbre necessary, and lie was nomina ted. The election occurs in November; what will be its result is a matter for con jecture and struggle. MONTANA NEWS. Lightning struck a telegraph pole in the suburbs of Helena and killed 0110 of a span of horses tied thereto. Lee Mantle was made chairman of the Montana delegation to the con vention by decision of the committee on credentials. A soldier of Troop B, Second cav alry, broke his leg while traveling near Fort Logan. He is now in the îospital at Helena. William Draper, a laborer at Helena was unloading a heavy telephone pole from a wagon when it fell on his neck and shoulders causing the blood to spout from his mouth, nose and ears and injuring him frightfully and fatally. To-night a prize fight for the mid dle weight championship of Montana will take place in Butte. The prize beside the î championship is a gold medal presented by Richard K. Fox, proprietor of that great family jour nal and illustrator of feminine charms, the Police Gazette. The entries are all of Butte thumpers. The Northern Pacific has made con tracts for the following stock ship ments from the east: Rosenbaum A My er, 3.000 head to Howard. Mont.; J. N. Coe, 1,300 to Fort Custer; Clan sy A Sons, 500 to Miles City; Giles A Co.. 1.300 to McCellan; C. G. Wier, .500 to Miles City; S. B. Strait, 250 ;o Billings; W. S. Smoote, 1,000 to Miles City; Willard Cattle company, ,200 to Billings; S. B. Mendenhall, ,500 to Fallon;. S. M. Barker, four car loads of blooded bulls to Milos City. A mulatto girl with a remarkably pretty but peculiar face was engaged by a shrewd western showman. He had a tooth extracted from each side ot her mouth, and inserted a pair of long tusks, covered her ears with false ones like a beast's, bleached and tangled her abundant hair, instructed her to utter an un intelligible jargon. Thus she was trans formed into a valuable curiosity, and her wages of $15 a week did not satisfy her. On the arrival oi the show in Indianaoplis she attempted to quit it, and a row resulted in an exposure of the iraud. According to a report sent by Lieut* Fred erick to the Moscow Gazette, there will *oon be no Kamtchatkans left in Kamtchatka The population in a district larger than the whole of France, which was once above 50,000, had in 1880fallen offto6,200. Theonly occupations of the inhabitants are shooting and fishing; their food consists almost exclusively offish, for the annual incoma of any one rarely ex ceeds $ 4 , for which not even forty pounds of flour can he bought. On the western coast things are even worse. The mortality in these parts is even greater than in the east. On the Conmodore Islands, however, which are separated by a distance of less than 200 miles from Kamtchatka, ihe population is flourishing amain under the benevolent supervision of an American firm. Washington special: Various posts of the Grand Army of the Republic have been en gaged several months in sending to Congress petitions regarding pension, bounty and back pay legislation. The petitions have been re markably uniform in tenor, mainly directed to urging the passage of pending measures to increase gratuities *0 those who seryed the Union during the war. But the Coleman[As barr Post of Ohio has made a] .«tricking var iation. It forwayded to the House preamble and resolutions denouncig the action of the Senate in seeking to place General Grant on the army retired list, claiming he had been sufficiently honored and assisted by his fel low-citisens. They allege that the passage of this hill would be an outrage npon many of the gallant comrades who tellin the front, and whose widows are to-day eking a miserable existence on the beggarly sum of $8 per month, and upon his mima; and crippled comrades who*epensions are n j just compen sation for the loss they havasustiaued.
