After tbe list bad beau called, J.
Willis ReetJ, a delegate from the
north district of Licktwanus. wauted
to kuow why that portion of the town -ship
had not been atked to preteut cre
dentials. Mr. Holgate iu reply said
that It was no longer io tbe district as
it had been annexed to tbe city.
Attorney John M Harris hogan a
speech iu defense of tbe north district,
but Mr. Holgate interrupted hitu aud
Mid he bad no right to speak iu tbe
convention, as he was not a resident of
the Third Legislative district. This
Mr. Harris denied, but Mr Holgate
persisted that at tbe last election Mr.
Harris bad cast bis vote in this city.
This angered Mr. Harris aud sprmgiug
to bis feet he said:
"1 say yon are mistaken when yon
sty 1 voted in this city at the last elec
tion. That is as mild a way as 1 will
put it. "
Mr Holgate still objected to the ad
mission of tbe North district delegates
into the convention on the ground that
It wa6 now a part of the city. Mr.
l'.eese then succeeded in getimir tbe
j floor and explained that it was the
' East district and not the North district
that baa bee u anaexad to tbe city. Mr.
Holgate thereupon withdrew his objuc
i tions and Mr. R?ese hau led in the ere
j dentinls of himself, John M. Harris,
j G. J Powell and William Jertnyn.
Mr. Holgate immediately entered a

MR. liAiihiS fKoTEslS.
Mr. Harris entered a protest. He
sill Heilevus is still a portion of
the Third Legislative district and that
nothing has been done to disturb its
1 relations with the district. Mr. Hol
gate claimed that owing to the peculiar
situation of affairs in the East district
the voters bad abstained from holding
primaries and that therefore there
could be no duly authorized delegates
from that district in the convention.
"7 bey kuow enough to protect their
rights, " continiiid the speaker, "with
out seeking the advice of a pot-house
politician and fourth rate lawyer "
These poiuted remarks drew forth a
protest Mr. Harris indignantly de
nied the npellations aud challenged
Mr. Holgate to point to a single inci
dent iu his I Harris') career that would
Justify such statements. He said that

S. L. Lacier, of Wilksi-Burre, was in
tho city yesterday Mr. Licier has
been deputy Internal revenue sollector
of the Third district aud bis object iu
vititiug.lhu city yestesday was to tile
his bond and take out a new commis
sion. It must uot be iuferred from the
foregoing that tho new collector in
tends to retain the old attaches of tho
ofiics. Of course, it is uot expected
that the changes will bs made at once,
but Mr, llernii' has declared that it
will rsquiro six weeks or two months
to make all the necsasary trausfers,
ami pending the obaogSS, the new col lector
wishes to have himsslf protected
by having everybody connected with
the department take out new bonds
and tile them with him for the faithful
performance of their dntisa

drawback, however, and friends of

int; very significant.
Everybody concsdes that eg. Sheriff

policy of Mr. Herring iu all appoint

many letters of recommendation pre

lector, none is to bo found from the
Mr. Burke's friends endeavor to ex
plain that uwuv. but the friends uf one
other candidate assign as the reason
that Mr. Robiusou has already indorsed
William Craig for the position and
these latter cotiti lemtly predict that the
plum will full iu that geutleman's Up.
Indeed it i reported ou the best of au
thority that his appointment has been

The position of chief clerk, that has
been filled by Peter tiiuter for several
successive terms, will probably be
warmed by a Democrat.
W hen Mr. tiinter asked Mr. Herring
as to the possibility of his rstention it
is reported that Mr. Herring's reply
was "lJeter, there is nobody looking
for your position." Pster very un
wisely circulated this story and now
