The work of tho Convention, it be came appartint, was too much to trans act in one session and ut 0:40 o'clock number of uora rnake an adjournment was there still being imitions t< made. Mr. T. E. Clohecy handled tlie ! convention as an uble helmsman and j succeeded in restoring tlie house to or der at times when other voices shouted in vain to lie heard. Many delegates were anxious to fin ish up tho job before adjourning, but it was an utter impossibility, and all bands concluded to have supper. Succeeding tlie adjournment tlie Ketelium baud played several selections from the balcony of the hall. Among tlie candidates for District At torney, A. M. Funkliouser, made a very able speech before the Convention, and notwithstanding his comparatively short residence among us, received a very strong support for the nomination. He was given tlie largest vote on the first ballot and nearly a tie with Mr. lluick on tho second. Mr. Funkliouser is probably like one of those articles that I improve with time and acquaintance. One honest Democrat at the Conven ns 1 ' j i j ! j j | i tion got up and said "I come into this J convention a true nnd solid Democrat, and if ony mon thinks that I'm to be i bot and sold lie's a dazy."

A large number of delegates were absent, but enough present for the transaction of general business. The report of the Committee appoint ed to suggest names for the County Central Committee was made and sever al delegates arose to object to the limit ed number of committeemen suggested, it being but nine. Several enthusiastic speeches wore be „ . . ...... ., made, chiefly pointing oat that it would , , . , . . be much easier to get a quorem out of . . . . . nine men than a hundred; and that a ma jority of the committee shouhl live within a few hours travel of the County seat. of at The debuting was, however, out of or der, aud the Choir explained tlmt the Committee had been appointed to sug gest simply, and not to present for j adoption, names for tlio Democratic !

Meusch arose here and made a statement of tbe iMntc of registration af fairs in this precinct, and the Chairman suggested that the Central Committee look into the matter. It seemed to lie the sense of the Convention that the Central Committee should attend to this matter and see that there was no possi bility of having the vote ol this precinct contested. The Chairman recommended, at the suggestion of Mr. Watt, that the dele gates of each precinct should meet at some subsequent timo to nominate pre cinct officers, such as Justice of the Pence and CoDstnble. The business of tbe Convention hav ing upparuntly drawn tea close a hearty vote of thanks was tendered to the Chairman, Mr. Clohecy, for the uble and proficient manner in which lie conduct ed tho business of the Convention.
