CUICAGO , Juno 4. At a late hour las
night , after considerable earnest talk
among the Blaine delegates fro in Missouri
and Michigan , upon the advisability of
bringing out General Sherman as a can
didate as the only solution of presonl
situation in the convention , it was urgcc
that General Sherman would not permit
the use of his name , or accept the nomi
nation under any circumstances. In
obedience to the wishes of a majority
of these delegates , John B. Hondorsor
sent nn earnest telegram to Gqn. Sherman
man urging him to accept , and request
ing-him to send them an answer thii
morning. Mr. Horace White , of New
York , stated this morning 'that in hii
opinion Blaine was already beaten , and
could never got as many votes in the
convention as Powell Clayton did.
The committee on credentials settled the
contest in the firstJAlabama district by deciding
ciding to seat the two delegates now ot
the roll , Jos. E. Slaughter and Franl
Thrcatt. , The vote on the propositiot
to seat the above named delegates was 2 !
to 15.
this forenoon is that the chances of nom
ination of a man not heretofore prominently
nontly mentioned have been increased
The names most frequently mentioned
are the two Shorirans and Gresham
General Sherman's reply to Ex-Sonato ;
Henderson is understood to bo a peremptory
tory refusal to allow the use of his name. .
.ABO of a break in the Bla'no ' column
a understood that Nebraska will go t (
oonator Sherman. The eastern delegate !
are determined to adhere to Edmunds
and as they are divided in opinion it ii
likely their strength will bo divided between
twoen Sherman , Gresham and Hawley
for .some time.
These managers rozard the dead poin
of danger for them is a drift from Blaini
to Arthur. If this can .bo prevented
they hope for a favorable result. Thi
Tribune this morning bristles all eve :
with bright articles for Blaine , and clain
that there is no cause for dlsconragomon
on account of the Powell Clayton inci

test. It compliments Logan and thi
southern colored delegates , and attacl
boldly George William Curtis , Roosevelt

The chair decided that as far as possi
ble the rules of the house of ropresonta-

late speeches for and against. This
ruling was made In response to appeals

3en. Henderson , on 'taking the choir
said :
Oenilemen of the Convtnlion : Wo have as
sorablod to survey the past history of the
party ; to rojolco , as wo may , because of th <
joodit has done ; to correct its errors , il
errors there bo ; to discover , if poaaiblo , UK
wants of the present , and , with patriotic firm ,
ness , provide for the future. Our past historj
the Union preserved , slavery abolished
md ita former victims equally and honorablj
by our sides in this convention ; the public faitt
maintained unbounded credit at homo ami
ibroad , a currency convertible ? into coin , and
iho pulses of industry throbbing with ronowoc
health und vigor in every section of a pros
Derous and peaceful country. These are the
.roils of triumphs over adverse policies gainet
n the military and civil conflicts of the las !
24 years.
jut of those conflicts has come n race o
icroes and statesmen , challenging the confidence
enco and love at homo and respect and ad
miration abroad. And now when wo come ti
select a standard bearer for the approachlnf
conflict our chief embarrassment is not in thi
want , but In the abundance of presidentla
material. New York has her true and triec
statesman , upon whoso admiration the fierci
md unfriendly light of public scrutiny hai
been turned , and the universal verdict is
"Well done , thou good and faithful servant. '
Vermont has her great statesman , whoso mine
Is as clear as the crystal springs of his native
itato , and whoso virtue Is as firm as its graniti
Mils. Ohio can come with a name , whoso mstori
is that of the republican party itself. Illlnoii
can come with one who never foiled in the dis
charge of his public dutywhether in the roun
cil chamber or on the field of battle. Malm
has her honored favorite , whoso splendid abl 1
Itios and personal qualities have er.douod bin
to the hearts of his friends and the brillianc ;
of whoso genius challenges the admiration o
alL Connecticut and Indiana may come wit )
names scarcely loss Illustrious than thoso.jAni
now in conclusion , if because of personal dis
agreement or the omeivnncies of tho'occasiioi
another name is sought , there yet remain
that grand old hero of Konosaw mountain ani
Atlanta. When patriotism calls he cannot i
bo would bo silent , but grasping that banne
to him so dear , which he has already borne ii
triumph , he will march to a civil victory no lee
renowned than those of war. I thank yoi
gentlemen for this distinguished mark of you
The allusioni to Arthur , Sherman , Ed

man whose splendid abilities and person
al qualities had endeared him to th

floor , and the galleries , men stoxx

demonstration , and waved their fana am
handkerchiefs. After the first itorm p
applause had worn iUolf out it was agaii
renewed , and once again , and the enthu
hum wan u marked and intense as tha
which charsctericed the convention o

Mathews , of Illinois. In reply to the
omarks of the gentlemen from Arknnsan ,
. want to say that while it may bo true
hat tickets nro issued for every seat in
ho house , it is equally true that these
teats nro not occupied half the time , but
f ono of these veterans who are not to
iccupy a seat should take , and the hold-

this convention that they then will
yield to the authority of that ticket , and
. want to say further that while those
oats are occupied these men would bo
jlad to stand around the aialos hero and
assages to the end that they might wit
ness these procoodings. All those men
ask is to bo permitted to come into this
liall and occupy such seats aa are not oc
upied by gentlemen or ladies hold-

party was going to win and that tin
American people would not allow thai

After Oglosby had finished his speech
there were calls for Fred Douglass , ti

Thoii'th-o'calls for Ingorsoll were re

present , a substitute was suggested in
the person of

a speech. Ho remarked that six month

CHICAGO , Juno 4. Gon. Powell Clay
ton in an interview to-day , said : "Tin
assertion has boon made in certain news
pnpora that I had pledged myself and thi
Arkansas delegation to Arthur , and an
now unfairly leaving him. The fact i
that I have never spoken or written i
word to him on the subject of his candi

In this conclusion , although throe of th

LONDON , Juno ! . The Standard saya :
'At ' no time , perhaps , within the history
of America has it boon leas possible to
forecast the result nt Chicago. The
voting will bo simply n triumph of men ,
not n victory for measures. Whatever
the result , there are no good issues nt
stake. It is difficult to say where the
democratic nnd republican platforms
dilTor. The chief importance of tha
present convention consists in deciding
how fnr the choice of the candidate can
bo influenced by the Irish faction in favoi
of stirring up ill blood between England
and America. "
