WHO WILIj BE TI1E HELMSMAN OP THE REPUBLICAN SHIP OF STATE STILL UNDECIDED. THE SITUATION. June 2. Politics got the better of religion yesterday, and many a good church member spent the Sabbath in discussing presidential candidates in the hotel lobbies instead of joking hid neighbors in devotional exercises. The hotels were crowded from morning to night, and the company was far more inclined to be social and convivial than on any previous day since the clans be gan to gather. In point of noisy enthusiasm the Blaine men seemed to have decidedly the best of it. They took possession, early in the day, of the ladies' ordinary in the Grand Pacific, and turned this spacious room to good account by keep ing brilliant "stumpers" in readiness to address large crowds on short notice. They also 6ent good talkers into the crowds and made the air lively with wordy discussions with any Arthur man they could get to stand. But it was generally observed that no con versions were the apparent result of this exchange of heated opinions, and that the Blaine men got it as hot as they gave it to the supporters of Ar thur. "The Blaine men are resorting to their old trick of trying to carry everything before them by storm, but I am afraid they will do nothing but give their boom the wind-colic, of which it may die," remarked an old campaigner, when he heard the Blaine headquarters ring with cheers after one of the im promptu meetings held there. The managers of the Blaine boom claimed, however, to have made great progress. Mr. Blake, of the New York Tribune, who keeps "tab" of the Blaine vote, claimed last night S33 votes on the first ballot, and promises of more from dele gates who had before been considered solid for Arthur. He said that Arkan sas was solid for Blaine because the delegates, since their arrival in Chi cago, had learned that they were elect ed as Blaine men to represent the strong Blaine sentiment in their state, and could not afford to go back on their constituents. It is, however, a fact that at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon an actual poll of the delegates gave 5 votes for Arthur. 5 for Blaine, and 4 for Logan. The Blaine managers also claimed as new gains 2 votes from Georgia, 1 from Florida, 3 from Massa chusetts, 2 from Mississippi, and 10 from Connecticut, which figures were looked at with a doubting smile by leading delegates from that state. The gain in the south, they further said, came all from white men, the colored delegates having been found too unre reliable a quantity. Some colored delegates were outspoken for Blaine, and hoped to bring a few of their breth ren into the fold, but no great impor tance was apparently attached by the Blaine managers to the colored vote. At the same time it was noticed all through the day that the Blaine boom ers were looking after sable-hued Ar thur men, and generally selected crowds of colored men as an audience for their loud discussions. The noisiest Blaine men were the delegates from the Pa cific slope, and from Dakota, and their enthusiasm seemed boundless. They openly proclaimed that Blaine was the only man who could carry the Pacific states and could lose New York with out losing the election. But the great importance they attached to the Chinese question seemed to hurt them more than to assist them, when arguing with the colored men, who claimed that the Chinese question was of a local nature only, and that the demand for the total exclusion of the Chinese from becoming American citizens was utter ly un-American. The Arthur men maintained the same dignified behavior that has character ized them ever ince the fray com menced.' They 1 looked sharp after southern delegates, and were ' very much pleased when ex-Senator Wil liams, of Ohio, the historian of the col ored race, arrived in the evening, and set about at once to talk Arthur among the colored people. The fight between the Arthur-and Blaine forces begins to be as hot, in deed, as was the fight between Grant and Blaine four years ago, and the strongest language is now being used in the discussions, which often run into downright encounters. The Arthur managers seemed less. confident Sun day than they had been, and their backers admitted freely that a deadlock between Arthur and Blaine seemed inevitable.- No particular gains were claimed for Arthur, but it was claimed that he had held his own, and that per haps a break would occur in his favor which would save him after all. The Logan men were less noisy than on Saturday, but kept hard at work. Their headquarters were crowded all day, and their missionaries were busy in the lobbies doing all they could to make the bitterness between Blaine and Arthur apparent to everybody. A story floating around the hotel that they had agreed to help Blaine and come to him whenever their vote would nominate him was strongly denied by the Logan leaders. "We shall stand by Logan to the last," said Senator Cullom, "and no proposition of any kind, involving the withdrawal of Lo gan from the race, will be entertained by us lor a moment. We feel sure of Logan's nomination if neither Arthur nor Blaine can be nominated." The Logan men will distribute a largely signed appeal from nearly all the states, members of the American Free School association, asking the convention to nominate Logan on accountof his prop osition to give gpvernment aid to the schools, and for various other reasons. The Edmunds men, represented by the New York independents, were hard at work, and claimed to find the out look of their candidate far more favor able than they had expected. Arumor that they had decided to abandon Ed munds and take up Ciresham was posi tively denied by Mr. ltoosevelt, who said that Edmunds would . be kept in the field until it was seen that some other good man besides him could be nominated over Blaine and , Arthur. But he thought Edmunds', prospects were excellent. : . . . Junk 8. The republican national committee has chosen Powell Clayton, of Arkansas, as temporary chairman of the convention. The selection caused the Massachusetts delegation to . ap point a committee to visit the -various state headquarters and urge opposition to Clayton's taking-, the ;cliair.The other candidates for the position "are Senator Hoar, Congressman Horr and Galusha At Grow. The greatest Inter est is aroused by the divided attitude1 of the Indiana delegation in regard to the presidential nomination, as. it is,' thought that the Hoosier state has the power to name the victor. Ofer-one kxbcm nunareo memrwrs or rne union lvepau lican club, of Philadelphia, arrived yes-, terday afternoon by special train. The ' Lincoln club, of Cincinnati, also made ) Its appearance. . . ! Junk 3. Long before non the Ex-' Sosition building began to 11 up with , eletrates to and spectators of the re-' lublican national convention. No less han eighteen senators and thirty-five members of the house ot repressnta-. tives were on hand. Other notables on the platform were Gen. Schofleld, Carl Schurz, Frederick Douglass, and jElinu B. Washburne. The predominance of earnest and elderly men among the del egates was the first feature to attract attention. The Illinois delegation was the only one which elicited applause as it filed in. At exactly twenty-five minutes past noon Senator Sabin, of Minnesota, as chairman of the national committee, stepped to the speaker's desk, and or der was restored in a very few minutes. He declared the eighth convention of the national republican party opened, and called on llev. Frank M. Bristol to open the proceedings with prayer. Mr. Bristol delivered a prayer of about five minutes' duration, in which he thanked the Lord for all the great things this continent had produced, including the republican party, and prayed for har mony, for a decently conducted cam paign, and for the maintenance of the faith of our -fathers: for temperance and moderation in all things, and for the blessing of the Almighty on all men in general and for the republican party in particular. After the "amen" there was loud bus tle, and even some applause. Then Secretary Martin was requested to read the call, and discharged this duty, the convention keeping quiet, as if in church. Again Chairman Sabin came to the front, and opened the convention formally in a well-set speech, referring to the conventions held in Chicago .be fore. The mention by him of Lincoln's name brought applause, the name of Grant still greater applause, and the mention of James A. Garfield raised a perfect storm. Turning away from the recollections of victory connected with the former Chicago conventions, Mr. Sabin expressed the opinion that it was more the man than the party for whom the party now cared. For the selection of a man the people had clothed men with the power to voice their senti ments who were hampered by no in structions and pledges, and it was therefore certain that whoever was chosen by the convention would be a true representative of the republicans of the nation. Mr. Sabin closed his address by presenting, on behalf of the national committee, the name of Pow ell Clayton for temporary chairman. There was applause of a boisterous nature, but of snort duration, and then Mr. Cabot Lodge, of Massachusetts, arose, and in a speech that was listened to with breathless silence proposed the name of John R. Lynch, or Mississippi, for temporary chairman, who lie thought would be better adapted to in spired he Republicans with confidence, lie asked for the call of the roll on his motion to substitute the name of Lynch for that of Clayton. A colored dele gate from Mississippi jumped to his feet and seconded the motion, but. his voice was drowned by deafening ap- ?lause. Mr. Sabin put the motion, and mmediately. S. I). Butcher, of New York, was on his feet to demand a bal lot on both nominees. New applause. Mr. Sabin announced that the roll would be called and that the chosen chairman of the different delegations should announce the number of votes cast by them for each candidate. Before the roll-call could le proceed ed with, Mr. W. W. Morrow of Call f ornia. obtained the floor, and demand ed that in accordance with well-established custom the choice of the nation al committee should be . ratified. He was frequently interrupted with ; the applause, and . the . yells of the Blaine MrGeorge W. Curtis, of New York, then arose, and. the announcement of his name' was greeted with loud ap plause. He denied that the convention was ' bound ' to abide by the election made by the national committee and that to do so would tend toward har mony. On the contrary, he maintain ed that the convention .was greater than the national committee, and that its own dignity demanded that it se lect a chairman of its own choice. He made no direct attack on Clayton but spoke so much of the integrity and lofty position of Mr. Lynch and the necessity to have the South .recognized that the whole speech became an ar raignment of Mr. Clayton and an indict ment against all who were concerned In the bargain that resulted in the se lection of Clayton. Other gentlemen voiced their yiews, when the calling of the roll proceeded with for two hours, the result being 431 votes for Lynch and 887 for Clayton. The result was received with wild applause. After the delegations had named their commit tees, the convention adjourned to 11 o'clock on Wednesday morning. June 4. Chairman Lynch mounted the platform at eleven o'clock' to day. The delegates had not all seated themselves when at 11:20 he brought his heavy gavel down upon the mahog- any-toppea taoie. me proceedings were opened by prayer bylheltev. J. II. Burroughs, of this city. At tne conclusion or the prayer, at 11 :30 the secretarybegan reading a mem orial from the American Temperance al liance, of Maryland, which was referred to the committee on resolutions. Mr. Hawkins, of Tennessee, intro duced a resolution that the delegates support their nominees, whoever they may be. A second to this was moved amid applause. Mr. Pierce, of Massachusetts, ob-; jected. Mr. Hawkins, of Tennessee, speaking In favor of the resolution said that if the delegate was there that would not support the nominee he ought not to farticipate. George A. Knight, of Cal f ornia, hoped the resolution would pass. - No one having the welfare of the republican party at heart should dare ' to vote down the resolution. The soon er the men who would vote ' Against ",it were found out and were out of there publican party the sooner the party; would - be better off. . What reason could this convention give for not sup porting its nominee " r '' " " Mr. Curtis, of New York.'ainld an- plause, said that as a republican and a free man he came to .this" convention,' and as a republican and a free, man he, "No republican convention." ie. con tinued, "should cast a reflection on the, Sentiemen wio composed it. The gen leman from California dares any one on t)iis floor to. vote against the,reaolu iion. I savitp himinatithe. resolution . is an insult. In the name Garfield and the-republican partyi the speaker asked Mr. Knight to withdraw the'rfr olntion, and ' askexl th tortttnildit to" remember to assume thatt fycry, Ban; rtrpspntwaaTan , hone aydijuoxabfe man. and to vote the resolution as un worthy to be ratified. Mr. Knight finally withdrew the resolution. The report of the committee on per manent . organization, recommending John B. Henderson as chairman, was adopted, with but one dissenting vote, and Mr. Henderson was escorted to the chair at 12:10. . In his speech Mr. Hen derson enumerated the different states which offered men for the presidency. All the names were received with cheers until the speaker reached that of Maine, when a wild cheer broke out which was prolonged by an evident ef fort.. The speaker thanked the con vention for the honor done him and pledged himself. to impartiality. A resolution to take a recess till 7 p. m. was then adopted. : . Five thousand people visited Lin coln's tomb at Springfield, Friday. A snow-storm prevailed Friday morn ing in the Chautauqua lake region of New York. Rev. Ralph E.

The charge against the absconder is forgery, in signing a check for $00,000 as president of the Second National bank after his forced resig nation. His father was compelled to make the amount good. Mr. Riddle, who was president of the wrecked Penn bank of Pittsburg, is in a critical condition of health. He stated that the directors were inter ested in the oil pool which caused the collapse of the bank; that the fictitious accounts were opened two years ago, and that the directors had recently ap propriated $400,000 in stock and depos its which he had left for depositors. Isador Jones, a Detroit dentist, was on Thursday pardoned from the Michi gan penitentiary.

If it should become a law, would afford imme diate relief to the banks and prevent the contraction of the currency which will be caused by the retirement of the 3 per cent bonds, which wilt be called during the re cess of congress. There is now on hand in the treasury a large amount of national bank notes which were printed in advance for the purpose of supplying the place of mutilated notes that may be retired. Im mediately upon the passage and approval of the Mcpherson bill the treasury could be gin to supply the banks with the additional 10 per cent of circulation allowed by the bill, at the rate of $1,000,000 or more daily until the entire amount has been issued. It Is understood that the secretary of war, having carefully examined the voluminous testimony In tne case of Judge Advocate (Jen. Swaim, has informed the president that the evidence is sufficient to require his trial by court-martial. But it is learned that for prudential reasons nothing will be made public with regard to the matter, with official sanction, until after the Chicago con vention adjourns, and it is Intimated that it is not worth while to stir up, just now, the friends of the president's predecessor, with whose administration Gen. Swaim held con fidential relations, although the offense of which the general is accused did not occur during that period. , . PUTTIKG OX THE SCBEWS. The chairman of the house committee on banking and currency proposes to amend the statue in relation to national banks in a manner which would, In his opinion, reme dy some of the weaknesses developed, es pecially within the last few months. It provides that no increase of stock shall be signed by the comptroller of tbe currency until he is satisfied that the increase is needed by the business of the association and is not made to pay existing liabilities or to avoid an assessment of the share-holders to make good any impairment of the capital stock of the association. The making of loans or discounts by an officer of a national bank without authority from the directors is added to the list of misdemeanors enumerated In section 6,209 of the Ke vised Statutes which are punishable by Imprison ment for not less than one nor more than ten years. In the reports of their condition the banks are required by t he proosed amendment to the law to state separately under the head "liesourccs" the loans and discounts considered to be good; those sus pended, overdue, and doubtful, and those overdue and unpaid for more than six months. The comptroller is authorized to call for a special report at any time upon the written request of stockholders repre senting one-fifth of the capital stock of the association. LAND G 15 ANT IIAILKOAU3. The secretary of the interior Informed congress some time ago that in the absence of congressional action in relation to rail road land grants the department was in the habit of certifying or patenting lands for the completed portion of the roads, whether built ana finished before or after the time described by the granting acts. Business s now crowding upon congress, and the session Is far spent, yet very little has been done toward a final decision In any of the land cases. With a prospect of adjourn ment before any of the forfeiture bills can become laws, and in view of the practice of the Interior department the house commit tee on public lands has agreed to recom mend the passage of a joint resolution pro hibiting the issuing of patents for any of the lands granted to corporations in any case touching which a forfeiture bill is pend ing until congress shall have taken final ac tion. The committee in Its forthcoming re port will declare so far it has failed to find one company that has complied with either the letter o- spirit of the law, and in view of the enormous quantity of land Involved It is of the highest importance to protect the f:overnment The committee anticipates hat the railroad crrporatlons will make a descent upon the interior department as soon as congress adjourns to secure con firmation of their titles. The committee wants the wealthy corporations driven into courts where their rights must ultimately be determined. ' A writer In a German paper calls at tention to the fact that a factory in which 2,000 workmen were employed in the manufacture of harmonicas is now closed, as the demand for these instruments has entirely ceased.

A FINE OPENING ON TUESDAY. MR. ASHLEY WINS THE APPLAUDIT, WELL DONE, At the invitation of Jarr.o M. Ashley, General Manager, about 300 of the citizens of Owosso assembled at the Junction Depot, on Tuesday morning for an excursion via the T., A. A. & N. Railway to . Ithaca. The day was a beautiful one, bright and cheerful, and - all nature was in its unrivaled spring glory."uThe; train was made up of one coach and sever al flat cars on which seats were im provised . for , the occasion .The Knights Templar Band furnished the music, and despite the lack of .first class accommodations, everybody' was happy, and the trip va merry one.. , At abdut . ten o'clock the it rain .pulled out. The road bed - from- Owosso to Maple River ( was fully ballasted J and isas fine a new road as a first passen ger toach 'ever rah over. ' The rani afe; sieel, goodv heft andf everything Indicates a first-class, road in. all ..re sped. . The station at Elsie is quite a dis stance from' the center of the village, yet a goodly number of the citizens were oh hand to . welcome the first train, and several, including some ladies, joined the excursionists. Ban nister and Ashley, new "bergs'' just springing into existence, give promise of being lively towns in the near future, and North Star will not be behind in the race for the business enterprise that is sure to spring up all along the line. ( ; The train reached Ithaca soon after noon, and the excursionists were met at the end of the track by the people of Ithaca who turned out en mass to greet their Owosso friends and the first train on the new road. There was a large number of carriages in waiting, and the Ithaca Cornet Band greeted us with some of their most soul Inspiring strains. The people from "-the land of the South" were welcomed to Ithaca by a brief but exceeding appropriate speech from Hon. Marvin R. Slater, President of tha village, and then a procession was formed, and the crowd escorted to the several hotels, lead by the bands in attendance. A , bountiful dinner was provided at ' the hotels and private residences for all, and great pains taken to make the beauties and advantage of their really delightful village known to those who had not been there before. Among which is a school house not excelled for convenience and ele gance inthe Peninsular State, an arte sian well 700 feet in depth, fine brick blocks, and an elegant Court House Square. 1 After dinner the K.T. Band played from the balcony ot the Commercial Hotel some choice selections, which were listened to by a large number of delighted spectators. About 3 o'clock a procession was formed led by the Ithaca Band and escorted by several hundred school children, and marched to the new depot ground, which by this time had about been reached by the track laying brigade ; when he school children and some "children of a larger growth," were delightfully entranced by witnessing the work of track laying, which by aid of the engine and other modern inventions, was put down more rapidly than it seemed possible such important work could be done, and at the same time as well done, as we had proved the track laying on the T., A. A. & N. to be. A pic-nic supper, gotten up in true Michigan style, was given the railroad boys, in the grove near the depot grounds, at 4 o'clock, and then the people were entertained for a brief time by interesting addresses from Prof. Pettengill, Sup t of the Ithaca Schools, James M.Ashley, Jr., Gilbert R.Lyon and Hon. Jerome W.Turner. Following this the familiar " all aboard" rang out on the evening air, and amid the booming of the cannon, and the cheers of the people the train started homeward, and after a pleasant ride of two hours we were safely landed at the station in Owosso,' conscious that the day had passed pleasantly, and that we were under many obligations to the officers of the road and the people of Ithaca for this delightful trip, the first, to Ithaca over the road for which so many earnest prayers have been made in the past by people of Owosso and Ithaca.
