THE NATIONAL CONVENTION.
On the thirty-first day of May all
or nearly all of the delegates bad ar
rived in Chicago, and great interest
was manifested in the meeting of the
national committee, which held its
first sitting that day to consider rules
for the conJuct of the convention. At
the meeting of that committee, a res
olution was introduced by Mr. Chaf
fee of Colorado, permitting each del
egate to cast aud have counted his
vote according to bis own sentiments.
Mr. Cameron objected and, on appeal,
he refused to entertain the appeal
(Mr. Cameron was chairman of the
committee), aud bis refusal drew out
a long and bitter discussion, without
result. Judge Hoar of Massachusetts,
was selected as temporary chairman
of the couventioi. Twenty-two del
egates from Nev\j York signed a pa
per refusiug to v|te for Grant on the
first or any othenballot.
On June first the national commit
tee again met nn<iit was resolved by
them to let the utit rule go before
the convention ffr final settlement,
and contests fro* all the disputed
delegations should be submitted to
the committee on credentials.
On the second the delegates assem
bled in the Exposition building, and
the convention was called to order by
the chairman of the national commit
tee at 11:40 a. m. The convention
remained in session until S p. in., per
fecting the organization by appoint
ing the various committees. Protests
from all or the contested slates were
entered. The committee on creden
tials commenced their session.
On the third the committee on cre
dentials admitted the sixteen contest
ing delegates from Illinois and the
four contesting delegates from Kan
sas. Up to teu o’clock p. m. of that
day they had settled forty-seven con
tests. The committee on rules adopt
ed au important one whicltreads as
follows: wjfeL
Bule B —ln the record of votes by
states, the vote of each state, territo
ry and district of Columbia shall be
aunotneed by the chair ; and in case
the vote of any state, territory or the
district of Columbia shall be announc
ed by the chairman, aud in case the
vote of any state, territory or the dis
trict Of CotomtU be dlridod,
the chair 6hall aunoime the number
of votes cast for auj caudidate, or for
or against any proposition, but if ex
ception is taken by any delegate to
the correctness of such auuouncement
by the ctiairtnau of his delegation, the
president of the coaventiou shall di
rect the roll of metibers of such del
egation to be called and the result re
corded in accordance with the votes
individually given.
The convention was permanently
organized with Judge Hoar as perma
nent chairman.
The session of ths fourth was taken
up chiefly in debate and was of not
much iuterest. The fir»t test vote of
the convention was tak<u that day on
the report of the couiuittee on cre
dentials in the Alabaua contest. It
showed Grant to have 306 votes and
the opposition 449.
On the fifth the Illinois question
was settled by the conveutiou iu favor
of the contestants. The Kansas ques
tion was settled by admitting teu del
egates but only allowing six votes.
The Utah contestants were seated.
At the eveuiug session of that day the
building was crowded to its utmost
capacity, aad a roll of states was call
ed for the presentation of uames for
nomination. When Michigan was
reached Mr. Joy, of that state, placed
the name of James G. Blaine iu nom
ination amid thunders of applause.
Ho was followed by Mr. Pixley of
California and Mr. Frye of Maine.
When New’ York was reached Seuator
Conkling marched down the aisle and
mouuliug a reporter’s table, made a
cool and set speech, nominating Gen
eral Grant which, when finished,
drew out loug and enthusiastic ap
plause. The name of John Shermau
was presented by General Garfield,
and he also was loudly received. The
notuiu*<ion of Sheriuau was second
ed by Elliott of South Carolina, a
uegro. Mr. Drake ot‘ Mluuesota, pre
sented the name Ww. Wiudotu. Mr.
Hillings of Vermont, presented the
name of Geo. F. Edmunds, and Mr.
Cassidy of Wisconsin, the name of
E. 1). Washburne. Without ballot
ing the convention adjourned until
ten o’clock Monday morning.
Tho convention reassembled on
Monday morn! tig. June 7th, and was
called to order at 10:46. Mr. Hale
moved that they proceed to ballot
for a candidate for president. Mr.
Conkling seconded the motiou. On
the first ballot it was shown that 765
votes were east and tsat 378 were
necessary for a choice There was
no excitement during the dev and
balloting continued steadily until 10
p. m., when the convention adjoun

balloting proceeded with, neither
candidate gaining or losing much
ground uutil the thirty-sixth ballot
was reached. Votes began changing
rapidly then from Blaiue and Sher

ting a mere complimentary vote
before until, amid great enthusiasm
it was announced that he had secured
399 votes, or more than enough to
uomiuate, and General James A. Gar
field was declared the uominee of the
republican party for president. Brief
remarks were made by a number of
prominent gentlemen, and a recess
was taken until 5 p. in. When the

Absit invidia. In the year of our
Lord one thousand eight hundred and
eighty, in the city of Chicago, state
of Illinois, Senator Conkling, John
A. Logan, J. Donald Cameron, Eu
gene Hale, Win. E. Chandler, James
F. Joy, Jerome B. Chaffee, Bob luger
soll, “my delegates” and mauy other
eminent men and politicians assem
bled, on the third day of June, the
same year, in convention for the pur
pose of nominating a candidate for
president of the United States. The
plumed knight. Blaine, the silent sol
dier Grant, and the “man from Ohio,”
John Sherman, were the most prom
inent men mentioned for that great
position, while in the dim and “dark
horse” distance, faintly outlined upon
the canvass, appeared such names as
those of E. B. Washburne, Geo. F.
Edmunds and Wm. Wiudorn. It was
ruse contre ruse down there in that
same Chicago, aud the contest waxed
warm and waned cold as the great
names were mouthed from lip to lip
and muffed and batted and caught
and fouled and the scores were count
ed one by one. The storm was great,
the tide ran high ; popular opinion
buffitted the champions about, cut
away a mast here, wrecked a ship
there and upon the sands lie the skel
etons of many a gallant cabinet po
sition and many a two dollar post
office. A greater struggle never took
place upon the sea of republican poli
tics and the epuleted commanders di
rected their forces to the manning of
the guns in true American style-shoot
low the water line is exposed. The
vunerable point was the unit rule and
as often as it was battened down or
the port closed over it by the follow
ers of Grant, a telling broadside from
a Blaine deck of guus blew the cover
ing away and left, glaring before the
whole line, that weak and tottering
form, until dually, with pennons
streaming from every mast head the
flotilla of Blaine bore down upon the
opposing fleet aud rammed the uuit
rule into an irrecognizable mass.
Inter nos, this was a victory or de
feat. This bared another point of
inconsistencies aira exposed 16 the
fire of both factions several weak
nesses in the shape of contested seats.
Over behind an island, in a lake call
ed the committee on credentials, «ome
barques of war were placed and the
struggle went on. This side affair
was quite pretty, and the volleys
rau up and down the linos briskly,
knockiug down a sail upon this cratt,
penetrating an ironclad over there
aud opening a leaky hole here, until
the contest was settled to the seem
ing satisfaction of all. Theu, with
cannon coubly shotted, blaziug match
in hand and, by the way, ballots also,
the fuu commenced—for the specta
tors. Both lines formed agaiu aud
forward and back ran the dancing
legions. Dizzy was the waltz, aud
the missils flew reverberating and
clashing upon either side. Now
Blaine was up now Grant, while
dangling upon the skirts of the busy
crowd hung Sherman, Edmunds and
Washburne. catching on this wavaa
shining bauble, now on that a fleck
of melting foam. Anon and agaiu*
to right and to left, up, down, around
aud back in fleeting circle dashed
hither aud thither the ships of state,
the brigs of war and all the little
boats; carried upon the tide, dashed
upon the reefs, cast upon the beach.
A slight knowledge of the history
of the begiuing and progress of the
canvass is all that is necessary to tell
why we present to our readers to-day
the name of the republican candidate
for president,
JAMES A. GARFIELD,
Senator elect from Ohio. James A.
Garfield is a man of irreproachable
character, whose private aud public
life is unassailable. He was born on
November 19tli, 1831, in Orauge,
Cuyahoga county, Ohio. He began
life as a day laborer ou the Pennsyl
vania and Ohio caual, and was twen
ty-four years old when he entered
Williams college,Massachusetts,grad
uating in 1858. He was a teacher of
ancient languages aud president of
the Elcctic iustiute at Hiram, Ohio,
lucauwbflo studying law aud preach
ing occasionally the Christian Inith .
In 1869-60 he was a member of the
Ohio state seuate. In 1861 he enter
ed the Federal army as colonel of the
Forty-second regiuicut of Ohio vol
unteers and was brigadier-general
in 1869. In 1866 he was chief of Gen
eral Uosecraus’ staff and took part in
the battle of C hickamauga, aud for
gallaut services In that engagement
he was promoted to the position of
major-general. In the tall of 1869 he
was elected member of congress trom
the nineteenth Ohio district and took
his seat in the forty-ninth congress
in 1886. For eighteen successive
years he hen serve** in that body and
I aft fail was elected by the Ohio leg
islature to take the seat of Senator
3Sfbt 24.
Thurman in the national senate, on
the 41 h day ef March next. General
Garfield is a truly self-made man, of
large mind, aud should he be elected
to fill the chief executive place in the
government would make a president
for tbO whole country aud not for a
party. The following from the Chi
cago Inter-Ocean is undoubtedly an
excellent description of the mail:
In the center of the main aisle sits
the man whose speech putting John'
Sherman in nomination thousauua are
impatiently waiting. Immense in
stature, Garfield’s favorite attitude
in sitting, hanging his legs oyer any
convenient rest or holding hi-* kneee
with his hands, is still such as to re
mind one of a big school boy. Hit
eyes are a cold gray, and yet they
look about now with a kindly ex
pression. Of a fact Garfield is a man
of big heart aud an affectionate na
ture. Among the delegates—on#
from Kansas aud one from Mississip
pi—are at least two old pupils of
Garfield when he was a schoolmaster
iu Ohio, while among the spectators
are many who have known him both
as teacher and college chum, and
these never tire of telling of the big,
generous nature they learned to love,
and of the manner in which the boys
who learned Latin of him idolized
him as the friend as well as the in
structor of their youth. He seems
no longer a boy when occasions arise
for him to make his voice heard in
the convention. Then his appearance,
standing in a chair fall before the
convention, with the slow utterance
of words that both ring and burn, is
simply a grand assertion of the sov
ereignty of mind.
The staff correspondent of the
Denver Tribune, who went to Chica
go to report the proceedings of the
convention for that paper, writes
thus of General Garfield : “Garfield
is the strongest aud sturdiest man of
the convention—a real old oak of tho
forest in apperance, and whoso char
acter stands erect amid the storms of
peculation aud temptation. General
