It would be a case of fishing for trout and catching a gar. The talk went on and on, and no definite conclusion was arrived at. In view of the fact that no mliuence can pre vent Mr. Tilden's name from going before the convention, however, it is very proba ble that his friends will all Join in and give him an ovation. To guard against the ac cident above suggested it is thought that a rule will be adopted proposing that the president shall not be -r"v united on the same day, in order that the latter may not be selectad with the undue haste and reck lessness which mark most conventions. Even Mr. Priest has at last let go his grip and concluded that TILDEN WOULD NOT RUN. This morning's train from St. Louis brought Col. J. G. Prather, tMiffidurPs na tional committeeman : Peter L. Foy, W. H. Bliss and John O'Grady. Col. Prather is the only one of the four, however, who -oomeft'on political-business. He is not out firthe race for his own successorship yet, and it is not at all impossible that he may yet muster enough strength among the country delegates from Missouri to defeat the O'Day-Scuilin-Shields combination. If Mr. Priest hag abandoned the fight on his own account, it is absolutely certain that his support will go to Prather, as they are old time friends, between whom marks were distinct only to those near aim. Gen. Butler began his address as the pro cession advanced, until its head had reached the hotel entrance, but the crowd was so dense that further progress was im possible. The mounted marshal who led the column attempted to force his horse through the midst, but a number of men seised the bridle and forcibly pulled him back. A gigantic policeman then endeavored to lead the horse but the crowd wrested his club from him and the terrific man Ed Cahill Crocker. Before their departure John Kelly said the democratic party has VICTORY WITHIN ITS GRASP this time as it has not had in twenty-four years ; we hope the convention will nomi nate a man on whom all can unite : "The friend of corporations and the enemy of the workmen is not such a nominee. Among the Irving hall delegates were Sheriff Davidson, Jcdge Callahan, State Eire Commissioner HAPS AND MISHAPS. Fourth of July Casualties. KILLED BY AN EXPLOSION. Cleveland, July 5.

Governor Mortin declares that the party must, in justice to itself, declare unquali fiedly for reform of the tariff laws. Congressman Morrison declares that the Indiana, Henry Watterson, and Gen, Black, of Illinois. There is still a good deal of TALK OF TILDEN, and nothing is more probable than an at tempt to spring his name on the convention and to carry it throHgh with a whirl. A platform of the party took precedence over amV oca, " 6 wmn. A LnrtMn. oIcp Kp npl&ral ;tT. tTip 89 mDV legates will hear nothing else everything else. He oelieved with the platform the party could go into the fight with almost any good candidate and win. He declared that the South and the greater portion of the West could be relied upon to support a; reasonable reform tariff prin ciple. Many northern and New England delegates would be opposed to it and it was a question whether the South and West did not constitute a clear majority. It is recognized that the tarriff question has taken precedence in point of interest thus far in the preliminary work of the convention as the free trade advocates have )een outspoken in their demand that the inbiect be clearly defined by the national convention. To a representative of the associated press, this morning, Hon. Henry Watter son said the statement that Mr. Harrison bad defeated Mr. Morrison at Peoria gives a verv wrone impression of what really oc- w a - curred there. The Illinois delegation adopted a tariff, for revenue only, resold tion. Mr. Harrison started out to quash this, but finding that he would be defeated, he modified bis demand and asked that the resolutions be simply referred to the Na tional convention about to assemble. This the state convention was willing to concede to the man who was about to be nominated for governor. 4It should not be .forgotten." continued Mr. Watterson, "that Mr. Harrison is him self A REVENUE REFORMER, and said in his speech that 'protection is robbery., With the action of the state convention Mr. Harrison's power over the Illinois delegation in the National conven tion expires. It is an out and out reform delegation, and Mr. Morrison will be its member of the platform committee." The New York Tammany delegation has hung out their rebanner at the Palmer house this morning and the New York county democracy also hoisted their pla card. Around the New York delegation gravi tates very largely the interest centered in the presidential race and the most widely diverging reports are current as to the COMPARATIVE STRENGTH of the respective candidates in the delega tion. The -Cleveland and Flower coherents both stoutly claim a majority of the dele gation and it is conceded by both wings that Senator Bayard has a following. It was expected that a caucus of the New York delegation would be held this morn ing but owing to the announcement of Chairman Manning that a caucus could not be held without full numbers, a post ponement will be necessary. It is now stated that the caucus will probably be .held to-morrow night. THE FLOWER CONTINGENT nvwas reinforced this morning by the arrival ot JohnB. Manning, -Ur. Crittenden, of Buffalo, and James Money, the latter of whom is a labor agitator. The Iowa delegation immediately after its arrival effected a Temporary organiza tion by electing Judge L. 0. Kinne, chair man. Permanent organization was de ferred until Monday. The delegation is stated to be for Cleveland. The conven tioB hall is receiving its last touches. The force of the sergeant-at-arms will be sixty doorkeepers, sixty ushera and thirty pages. They reported this morning to Col. Bright, sergeant-at-arms, who made them subscribe to a written form for a faithful perform ance of their duties, and to exclude all but ticket holders from the hall. The pre-convention excitement has set in in good earnest and the several presi dential booms are being worked for all Jhey are worth. A little squad has arrived JXUul IUC cool nuu uccugftgcuiu ixuviaixu-. ing from the house tops that Eoswell P. flower is the only man who can save the than his nomination. Nevertheless, his closest friends deprecate all mention of his name, and declare that it would be impos sible for him to accept the nomination, even if it should be tendered by acclama tion. The Butler boomers are working hard but make little impression. Payne is not mentioned, and Thurman and Hoadly are being used to kill each other off. Judge Field is hardly spoken of. There is talk of Gen. Slocum, of New York, both for first place and for second on the ticket, with McDonald. Bayard is still prominent, and EN. BUTLER ARRIVED in Chicago from Boston this evening, on the 6 o'clock train over the Michigan Cen tral road. He was accompanied by his secretary and several personal friends. A representative of the Associated Press met the party at Kensington, a few miles out from Chicago, and accompanied the gener al into the city. Gen. Butler was some what fatigued after his long, hot journey, Ktit still Kasrc in hia rtavsmn otr? rl onncva nf Jlentucky , physical vigor. His hair is a trifle grayer than when he last visited Chicago, and the LINE OF BALDNESS has pushed its skirmishers well out to the outward crown of his head which was cov ered whiU in the car with a black skull cap. Upon being introduced by Col. Plimpton, to the associated press represen tative he recalled to the general's recol lection, an incident of the early days of the war when General Butler, then in com mand of the United States force, at Fort ress Monroe, secured for the writer, at the time a private soldier, who had just been thrashed at Big Bethel, a seat on the fiat boat for a ride across Hampton creek. The general smiled grim ly as his memory ran back over his checkered military and civil ca reer and he remarked stated that neither side appeared at all anxious to bring up any test question at the present time ; and it may be safely said that the whole delegation, when it SPORTING.
