It had hern practicall.v agreed the light before that three men should iw* elnwen in tie* interest of harmony. i Some delegates were not satisfied with ‘ • f. ! this sett lenient and prepared to com bat it upon the floor. It became plain i immcdiatelv after opening the fore men -es-ien that it would ho impo-si hi(* to agree upon one man. I'rice of i Skagway oi’eri d a ; evolution providing j for the nomination of three, explaining j that it had become certain that the nomination of one could not he made without leaving bitterness behind. Immediately half a dozen delegates i wen* ott the floor. Nye of Kairbanks was recognized and started the trouble I by saving that a deputy I'nited States i marshal, meaning Lalhrop. had no I business coming into the convention i with live proxies to east in the interest o' perpetuating the hold of a candidate for tlie judiciary. Hughes and Lath rop denied the charge Hull they were s making a light for \\ ickersham on tin* 'judgeship in the convention. Nye de }dared that Lalhrop had Wicker-•sham’s i proxy in the convent ion.
