They had expected to ask that the date for the vote be fixed on the 8th or 0th of June, and thought they would be able to secure an agreement for about the l.itn or June. The conference with the Republicans convinced tllem that if the request should be made now it would be antagonized and proliably would result in Iocs of time and in no annmxinliU complishment, whereas if it should be maue -ater it might be acceded to.

Xew YorKWay 20. -R. ,fL.Dun, & Co s weekly review of trade today says: Storms and floods, prolonged strikes and large exports of gold, have done their tit most this week to give business a vaca tion. But the wants vusatisfied during the past year, belated aud much lessened, aud yet greater than those of any other nation, have caused a volume of trade quite lar,r for the season. Prices of products still tend downward, without much speculation. It is not surprising that farmers still retain wheat at present prices where they can.. Corn has been stronger, notwithstanding large receiptu snd iuaigniiicant exports. l'ork products all declined with heavy receipts, and coffee is also lower. The as tonishiug cheapness of wheat and cotton will affect the rapidity of movement in the fall, and also will directly lessen the amount of money required in moving the cros. While the iron industry especially, aud many others to some extent, have been restricted by scarcity of coal and coke, the number of works resuming has liecn greater than the number stopping from other causes. Hut it is a symptom uot to be overlooked tbat the demand for manufactured products, instead of in creasing, appears for the moment rather smuller than before, and indifference of buyers is shown in cancellation of orders hitherto given. It is a waiting season, but t he disposi tion to wait is this year much intensified. Failures dimiuish in importance, the amount of liabilities for the third week in May being only tX'i. 139, and for three weeks fT.Kil,073. of which f:2,(4 2.GS7 were of munufacturiug and j,02r,ui? of trading concerns. The unmber of failures this week is 183 in the United States against Ti'.i last year, and in Cauada twenty-three against fourteen last year, and again there are noted scarcely any of import ance. ROOSEVELT'S READY CHALLENGE. Ma Fromptlr Tackles Enloe, Pendleton and Other Assailants. Vasiiixgtox, Muy 20.

During the re cent debate in the house Pendleton is quoted as saying that the commission is so organized that only the members of one political party have any opportunity ol standing a fair examination, and Eu'.oe in the same connection said that he under stood tbat nearly all the clerical force con nected with the commission are Repub licans and that they mark the papers and pass upon tiie examinations of caudidates.

Ex-Assistant Attorney General E. S. Smith, in behalf of the "Republican state, central committee, appeared an asked for a con tinuance until next Thursday on account of unavoidable absence of General Hunt in Chicago and W, J. Calhoun in Danville, attorneys in the case. Judge Creighton said the case had been set for this day, at torneys were present and the case ready to be ceard on demurrer and he would not grant the postponement. In Support of the Demurrer. State's Attorney James M. Graham, in support ot the demurrei, occupied the morning session with an elaborate and ex tensive argument. He admitted that the court hud jurisdiction iu such cases, but denied that the facts in the pending case warranted the court in assuming any jurisdiction in this case. He stated that there were but three questions to be con sidered iu the case. First, population; second, contiguity, aud thini compact ness. The constitution, clearly debited what population was that it was a dis trict containing not less than Tour-fifths of ratio, nor more than three-fourths of ra tio, which would make the minimum un der the act of Ib'.t! (U.ltW, and the maxi mum 131,300.- There was no dis trict iu the state under this act having a population Icsh than the minimum, nor more than the maximum. and that part of the constitution was clearly complied with in al resects re garding population Meaning of Cout iguity. The meaning of the word "contiguity" could menu only one thing, that is con tact, together; end that word or act was not 'jontroverted. All districts uuder the act of 1833 were composed oi contiguous counties. The only question really at stake was, therefore, the word "compact ness." Various delinitiuu3 of the word were cited at some length, ar.d contended that the act of complied sd jVith the pro utTiu in this re spect: nnd also because the acts of the last legislature of this suite were givcu a great degree of discretion iu frauiiug the bill as enacted. Mr. Graham said that assuming that the acts of ISO and It-.' were not void, the act of 1ST2 would now bs iu force aud would work a very, great injustice to the people of Illinois; many thousands would be disfranchised; the act would lie of a great inequity and udj'iis'.ujss to the people of the entire suite. UnjuHUiOM of the Proposition. Many districts wouid have a population as higu as 170,000, while niauv others would have less than 35,000 p.-ople in the entire distrirt, if taken at. the present time. The unjtistness of the proposition was plainly viuible to the most obtuse. Mr. Graham continued ou this line uutil noon, wheu a recess was takeu. In the afternoon Graham concludid his argu ment und was followed by Helos P. Phelps ami Attorney General "Moloney in support of thedemuier. H. G.
