Tbe nthnslaui " Last Night.
It is notable that tbe great " enthusiasm '
of last night was aroused by Emery
Sterrs, the ex-attorney of the Chicago
whisky ring, who made his eloquent plea
for Grant te a gallery packed with heelers.
It was a competition of lungs between the
Blaine clacqueuis and theG rant rowdies and
each tried te outhewl the ether. Mr.
Conkling was conspicieus in leadiug the
chorus, lirst by waving his handkerchief
and later by standing en Ins chair anil
waving the illuminated little banner placed
te designate the seats of the New Yerk dele
gation. Beb Ingersoll, seizing 2 a lady's
shawl, wared it frantically from the plat
form. In the centre of the stage, just back of
the chair, a fine looking lady with a flag
in one hand and a parasol in the ether
swung them te and fro and repeated time
and again : '" Hurrah for Blaine !" She
appeared te be in company with Governer
Jewell, of Connecticut. Finally she ob
tained two flags, and, with one in each
hand, continued her enthusiastic efforts as
Innrr i till imrnflr laf Af?
When Sterrs get in a shot at Hayes by
saying that "the grand old soldier (Grant)
is carrying forward the banner of the slug
gards," the applause became deafening. It
could net be controlled at all. Men tore
the shields of the states from their fasten
ings, and Tennessee, Kentucky, Flerida,
Virginia, Illinois, Texas, Alabama, New
Yerk and Vermont, were waving their ban

The Convention Te-day.
Chicago, June 5, 11:11 a. m. The dele
gates are steadily assembling The galler
ies are filling rapidly, dispite heavy
showers of rain and a sultry atmosphere,
only partially relieved by occasional
thunder. The usual rounds of applause
were given te notable delegates as they
entered the hall. Mr. Garfield especially
was received with much enthusiasm prob
ably because in some contingencies he
is considered a possible winning dark
horse in the presidential race.
The "Eloquent Prayer."
Kcv. Baxter's opening prayer included
the following : "Ged, thou Creater of all
things, and Mighty Sustainer of all Thy
creatures, we begin this day with thank
ful acknowledgment of Thy mercies. We
commend unto Thy favor and grace the
members of this convention. Utile, we
pray Thee, in all their counsels, guide all
their deliberations, and declare through
their vote, for the wisest, for the truest, for
the best man te lead this great
party in the contest which awaits it.
Forbid that the cry of passion should
be louder here than the calm voice
of duty "forbid that prejudice should warp
judgment and compromise principles ; nor
permit personal preferences te impair or
imperil the peace, the harmony, the en
thusiasm, unity of purpose, of fidelity te
trust of this convention.

The question was then takcu by a call
of the states and the majority report iu the
Kansas case was sustained : Yeas, 47G,

It was noticeable that in the Kansas
case, New Yerk cast only 22 in the affirm

It is manifest that the Grant leaders arc

The Significance of It.
The 330 votes for the negation of the
West Virginia case are regarded by many
as indicating that Blaine's strength iu the
convention is at least as great.

.- CONVENTION NOTES.
Episodes of the Struggle.
Troops of delegates could be found in
and around the Palmer Heuse all day ready
te sell season tickets of admission, and they
found a lively market at prices ranging
from S10 te $20.
Old Madisen Wells is there. "Whom
are you for ?" was asked of him, " Grant,
Blaine or Shermau '" Wells winked and
said : "Oh, I'm for all of 'em."
Bill Chandler, " the political fa nip,"
who eut-generaled Cameren, is a slight,
boyish figure, in 110 particular noticeable,
except for an apparent' insignificance. He
has thin, gray hair ; a thin, gray beard ;
a thin, fiat chest ; thin legs and thin arms.
His head is small, his eyes arc small, and
his nose is small. Ne woman would ever
fall iu love with him at first sight.
There has been great complaint about
the distribution of admission tickets, and
Roe,t of the local committee, had te be
let out a second-story back window of tin:
Palmer house with a ladder, te protect him
from violence for his alleged partiality ill
Twenty-five tickets reserved for Mr.
Hear were stolen from him, and it is rum
ored that some of the colored membeis of
the convention have been selling them.
Queen Victeria's son, Leepold, who is
looking at the convention, has a head
small and shelving, and well covered with
hair of a brownish tint that stretches from
a little pimple near his car down his slen
der neck. He has the Victorian eye and
the lip of a Guelph. Hisuese indicates cu
riosity, being long and prominent, with
a tendency te point heavenward that is
net entirely pleasant. Leepold's as yet
undeveloped mustache does net conceal
the fact that his mother never taught him
te keep his mouth shut. On the contrary,
he sat with one thin leg thrown ever the
ether long one, his upper teeth showing
like squirrel's and his long bauds being
knuckly and red as a boiled lobster.
Whenever the convention gets dull the
delegates rush out te a refreshment stand
at'the deer, and every mother's son comes
in with a pic. A hall full of men and the
men full of pic is a pretty
dyspeptic scene, and such a ne
was presented te the guests en the plat
form. There is a smell of sewer gas in the
hall, and quinine pills arc at a premium.
There is nothing te cat and nothing whole
some te drink. The crowd is simply im
mense and crowds stand in all the aisles.
Old Senater Hear's gavel with which he
calls the convention is as big a nuisance as
Jack Fry's cane was at Fulton hall. The
Herald bays : " He raised his arm and
giving a mighty blew, struck the desk
with his gavel and -cnt neuralgic thrills
through every nervous head. There aic
mere deranged medulla oblengatas in the
convention te-day than in the entire coun
try besides. Mr. Hear's gavel is an intol
