THE Butler convention being over
sod Republican nominations made—
now for the Chicago one—Grant,
Blaine, or who ?
TBM delegate who gave up his seat
in the Convention, on Monday, is cen
sured almost as much as the man who
took it waa rebuked. The Convention
sat down heavy on the substitute.
WE have waited up to the time that
it is necessary to go to press, for the
full proceedings of the Return Judges
in County Convention, and not being
furnished us we have to defer their
publication until next week.
THE Lawrence county Republicans
have nominated for Congress, Hon. W.
S. Shellenberger; State Senate, George
W. McCracken, editor of the Guardian;
Assembly, Ellis Morrison and Johh N.
Emory; District Attorney, I. Scott Ir
vin; Register and Recorder, L. Dur -
ban, of the Courant.
IT is interesting, though not impor
tant, to recall just now the fact that of
all the bolters against the "unit rule"
in the National Conventions that
Pennsylvania has produced, Senator
Cameron was the first and chief. It
was in 1868, and in Chicago, too.
The Pennsylvania delegation then, as
now, bad been instructed by the State
Convention to vote as a unit.—Pitts
ME. DICK, present member of Con
gress from this district, placed the
whole matter of appointing census enu
merators for this county, in the hands
of a certain candidate for Congress
here, and yet it availeth him not. Some
of the enumerators appointed thought
it necessary to ride their townships and
electioneer, as if that was required to
pay for their appointment. They must
have taken a cheap view of the duties
of the responsible offices they are to fill.
StrPEE VISOR RICHMOND has an
nounced that the pay of the enumera
tors for this county will be 2| cents
for each name and 12£ cents for each
farm. Towns containing 2000 or more
inhabitants are not included in these
rates; in these the rate will be 2 cents
per name. Each death 5 cents ; estab
lishments of producing industry, 15
cents each, etc. But no enumerator is
to receive in excess of $4 per day.
Blank oaths have been sent to the enu
merators and as soon as taken and re
turned, the other necessary blanks,
with the commissions, etc., will be
- On Monday evening, after the re
sult of the primary election in this
eounty waa known, the Butler Cornet
Band of this place called at the office
of J. D. McJunkin, Esq., the nomi
nee for Congress and honored him
with what is termed a serenade. Mr.
McJunkin returned thanks in a few
brief and neat remarks and counseled
moderation and harmony in the ranks
of the party in the county. The Band
also called at the office of John M.
Greer, Esq., the successful candidate
for the Senate nomination of the
county, Who also returned his thanks
for the honor of the visit. A. M. Cun
ningham, Esq., the successful candi
date for District Attorney, was next
called upon at his office, in the Brady
Law Building, and also in a few well
chosen words returned thanks. Dr.
Bell, one of the successful candidates
for the Assembly, who was in town at
his hotel, the Willard House, was also
visited, and returned thank 3 for the
compliment The affair was plesant
THE Democratic delegates from this
Congressional district to the State
Convention agreed upon M. Allen, of
Titusville, and E. P. Gillespie,
pf this place, as delegates to Cincin
nati ; but by some hocus pocus ar
rangement, another set of delegates
appeared, with L. McQuiston, of But
ler, and J. B. Brawley, of Meadville,
to represent the district at Cincinnati.
These latter gentlemen were success
ful in receiving recognition as the legal
delegates. It is said their seats will be
contested at the National Convention.
Considering the result of the prima
ries, as counted up in the convention
of Return Judges on Monday, we can
afford to pass by in silence some things
very discreditable to certain parties,
that were attempted in the Convention.
Had they succeeded the party must
have suffered, and their failure was
most significant and telling. The Con
vention was composed of gentlemen
who had the best interests of the party
in view, and who by their final action
evinced a decided determination to pre
vent any unfairness of action in the
the Convention. The proceedings as
a general thing were harmonious The
ticket nominated and the aggregate
vote received by each candidate will
be seen in another place. Full pro
ceedings, with a table in detail of the
primary vote will be furnished our
readers next week. The Convention
passed several resolutions, among them
one authorizing the candidates nomin
ated for Congress and Senate, Messrs,
M'Junkin and Greer, appoint their sev
eral Conferees to meet similar ones
from the other counties in Conference.

The names of the successful candi
dates for the different offices to elect in
this county this fall will be seen at our
mast head this week. They are all
well and favorable known to the peo
ple of the county and need no special
recommendation at our hands. Mr.
McJunkin, the nominee for Congress,
carried the county after a very warmly
fought contest. He is a native of this
county, and in the prime of manhood,
being in the 41st year of his age.
His own good name and upright char
acter was a tower of strength to him,
and there is very general satisfaction
with his success. He will be present
ed by his friends to the other counties
of the district, Crawford and Mercer,
with equal claims and chances for
the district nomination.
For the State Senate, John M.
Greer, Esq., the present incumbent, is
again presented by this county. The
district is composed of Armstrong and
Butler counties and if Mr. Greer can
receive the nomination in the district
he will be a strong candidate. The
vote he received at our primaries indi
cates his hold upon the people of this
For the Assembly, two excellent
men are nominated, Wm. P. Braham,
Esq., of Mercer township, and Dr. Syl
vester D. Bell, of Millerstown. Mr.
Braham is perhaps as well -known as
any citizen of the county and has the
respect and confidence of his fellow
citizens to a very high degree. Dr.
Bell is perhaps less known, but the fa
vorable report of him by all who
knew him added much to his nomina
tion and is a guarantee that the people of
the county will not be disappointed in
the confidence they have expressed by
their votes for him. He stands high in
his profession as a physician and is a
gentleman in all respects. He is a man
of but few words but of very good
sense. Both he and Mr. Braham will
make intelligent legislators and are
pledged to the Republicans of the
county by their good character if
elected, to be found opposed to all cor
ruption or ring rule in their capacity as
members of the General Assembly of
A. M. Cunningham, Esq., the nomi
nee for District Attorney, is a young
man of more than ordinary intelligence
and will make a faithful and honest of

to the good name he bears and the
confidence and respect borne him by all
who knew him. He displayed remark
able energy in his canvass, and his
nomination is very gratifying to his

The Great Political Event.
The Republican National Conven
tion assembles at Chicago to-day. It is
supposed it may be in session several
days. The great struggle is for the
nomination for the Presidency. We
have heretofore given our views fullv
as to the candidates. The nomination
will depend, we still believe, upon the
proper disposal of the '"unit rule" ques
tion as to the voting of the delegates.
Gen. Grant has not a majority with
out the benefit of that rule. We believe
it will be ignored and repudiated at
the very start, and in that event we
hope for the nomination of Blaine.
The general impression is that bitter
strife will take place, and that a "dark
horse," or name not now prominently
mentioned, will, as a compromise, carry
off the prize. This may happen. But it
is useless to speculate on the result.
Elsewhere in our paper to-day will be
found some views expressed and the
latest dispatches from Chicago, from
which our readers will be able to gather
some idea of what is going on there
It is estimated that in addition to the
delegates not less than fifteen thousand
others will visit that city. These will
generally be the active politicians of
the country that go to help on the
cause of their favorite candidate. No
National Convention was ever so im
portant. The news from it for the com
ing few days will be looked for with
great interest. We hope for harmony and
an acceptable nominee.
The National Convention.
CAMERON'S PLANS AT CHICAGO.
Of course Senator Cameron, when
he calls the convention together, will
be obliged to nominate for temporary
chairman whomsoever the national
committee selects; but it will be ar
ranged to have some leading Grant del
egate move to substitute the name of a
Grant man for the place. On that there
will have to be a vote by the conven
tion, and an attempt will be made to
enforce the unit rule when that vote is
taken. Naturally some delegates from
Pennsylvania, New York and other
States"will insist on voting differently
from the majority of their delegations
from those States; but Senator Came
ron, who will decide that the unit rule
is binding upon all delegations repre
senting States in which it was adopted.
If the anti-Grant men appeal from this
decision and a vote is taken upon the
appeal Senator Cameron will decide
again that the unit rule must be en
forced in this vote also.
The Grant men have been talking
about this programme freely and as
sert, with the greatest apparent confi
dence, that by the help of Senator
Cameron and the unit rule they will
not only get a temporary cbairmaD,
but also that when it conies to. the
choice of permanent chairman they
will secure him likewise by the same
kind of tactics.
A BLAINE PROGRAMME.
The situation here is unchanged.
The Grant men are confident, the
Blaine men determined and the Sher
man men are hopeful. The leaders are
coming in, and when Conkling arrives
the men who will dictate the proceed
ings of the Convention will all be here.
The key to the situation lies in the
unit rule. If that can be abolished
Grant's nomination is doubtful. If it is
sustained his nomination is certain.
The fight over the unit rule will begin
in the national committee on Monday
next, when the temporary chairman
wiil be named. The Blaine and Sher
man men will combine upon a man,
who being in the chair, will not decide
against the right of individuals to vote
as they please. Further than this there
will be no coalition. The Blaine men
propose to put up Gov. Charles Foster,
of Ohio, for temporary chairman. He
is at heart a Blaine man, but is work
ing for Sherman, and will please both.
Blaine has a majority of the national
committee, but Don Cameron says he
can break it. Cameron says that the
Blaine men will be surprised when he
shows his hand, but to a disinterested
spectator it looks as if Blaine and
Sherman together would have ten ma
The Blaine men made a proposition
to Sherman's managers to-night to
combine on all questions against
Grant, but it was refused. Sherman ex
pects to get most of Grant's votes when
he retires, and so he cannot afford to
antagonize him. The Sherman men
will vote with the Grant men on all
questions except that involving the unit
rule. The Blaine men will prepare the
way to elect a temporary chairman by
contesting the forty-two Grant dele
gates from Illinois, and will insist that
the contested debates shall not be al
lowed to vote. But the Sherman men
will not unite with them on this ques
tion, and it is scarcely possible that
the scheme can succeed.
nis TOTAL CONCLUSION.
WASHINGTON, May 20 —An intimate
friend of Senator Blaine represents
him as sanguine of success at Chicago.
He takes no stock in the stories that
the Grant men will seize the Conven
tion as they seized the Illinois State
Convention. Indeed, he does not be
lieve that they have strength sufficient
to carry through a single independent
proposition ; that is. the third termers,
when the test votes are made, will
find themselves in the minority. As all
the State Conventions have been held,
Senator Blaine thinks he knows ex
actly where he is to stand on the first
ballot. He counts upon 306 votes, or
only 73 less thau required to nominate.
These he expects to get on the second
ballot, as he looks for the Grant forces
to fail to pieces after the first ballot
and their strength to scatter. It has
been said all along that unless Grant
was nominated on the first ballot he
would not be longer before the conven
tion. In this view of the case Blaine's
nomination looks probable, and his
friends are very confident. Blaine
claims 18 votes from Pennsylvania and
15 from New York on the first ballot.
These are incorporated in the estimate
given above. His friends say that he
knows just what ho is talking about as
regards these two States, and that he
is positive of these 33 votes on the
first ballot. If this is correct it will
beat Grant beyond all question. Even
his friends cannot figure out his nomi
nation if 33 votes are lost from New
York and Pennsylvania^

Garfield on the Unit Rule.
WASHINGTON, May 25.—A corres
pondent interviewed Gen Garfield yes
terday evening on the unit rule as ap
plied to the binding of delegates in the
National Convention. He said:
"Delegates to National Conventions
are two classes—delegates at large and
district delegates. The delegates at
large, which are elected by State Con
ventions are, by virtue of their crea
ation, the representatives of the Con
vention to which they owe their offi
cial existence. The Convention has
the undoubted right to instruct them
to vote as it sees tit, but district dele
gates are either selected by the people
of a district Convention, or else by
delegates from a district to a State
Convention. They are creatures ot a_
district and not of a State convention,
and they should be left to obey the
voice of the district, or when that is
not well defined, to their own individ
ual judgement. A State Convention
has no right to dictate as to how they
shall vote. This idea of States instruct
ing to vote as a unit is the old Con
federate one, and is based on the the
ory that the State is supreme. A dis
trict delegate is in immediate relation
to the people, and a State Convention
has no right to abridge that represen
tative power for the reason that he is
not a creature of the Convention. A
district delegate is in immediate line
of the people, the same as a citizen is
in immediate connection with the na
tion, and holds that connection above
any State authority or license. A citi
zen in giving his allegiance to the gov
ernment is untrammeled by State in
terference, and so a delegate, as a rep
resentative direct from the people,
should be allowed to vote as his peo
ple request, and not as a State Con
"This State unit instruction busi
ness is the introduction of the Confed
erate idea into a Union Convention,
and the question is, shall the Confed
erate idea usurp the Union one and
control its Convention ? It is a Tam
many Hall method of controlling a
party for personal or sinister motives,
and if it is introduced at Chicago it
will be the first time that Tammany
rule has captured a Republican Con
"Will the rule be broken at Chi
"From what I hear I should say it
would. The conflict of the Convention
will be upon this rule. The struggles
in the party are now centering around
this one issue."
Do you know whether there is a
combination between the Blaine and
Sherman men to break it down ?"
"I know nothing about combinations
of any kind whatever, but I believe
that all, whether they be Grant,
Blaine or Sherman, who are opposed
to this anti-represetative rule will
unite to effect its destruction."
A GLANCE AT THE INQUIRIES THAT WILL
BE PUT TO THE PEOPLE THIS MONTH.
Yesterday the actual work of enu
meration for the tenth census of the
United States was begun. Suggestions
and facts of interests to the to-be enu
merated, as well as the enumerators,
are appended :
The enumerator is prohibited by
law from delegating to any other per
son his authority to enter dwellings
and to interrogate their inhabitants.
The work of enumeration must be done
by the enumerator in person, and can
not be performed by proxy. The sched
ule of population takes June 1, 1880,
as a starting point, and includes the
following questions : Name ol street;
house number; the name of each per
son in the family ; the color, sex and
age of each person ; the relationship of
each person to the head of the family ;
what persons are single, married, wid
owed or divorced, and who, if any,
were married during the census year ;
the occupation of both males and fe
males ; the number of months any per
son has been unemployed during the
census year ; a statement of the sick
ness or temporary disability of any per
son at the time of the enumerator's
visit; if there are any blind, deaf aud
dumb, idiotic, insane, maimed, crippled
or bed-ridden persons in the family;
how many attended school within the
census year ; if there are any who can
not read or write; the place of birth of
each person, and the places of birth of
his or her father or mother. All per
sons will be included in this enumera
tion who are living on June 1, 1880,
as well as members of families who
may die after that time ; but children
who are born after that date will be
omitted. The questions as to occupa
tion, and the ability to read and write,
are not to be asked with regard to chil
dren under ten years of age.
The schedule of agriculture contains
100 questions. The person who con
ducts the farm is to state if he is own
er, or if he rents for money or a share
of the products ; what part of the farm
is improved and what unimproved, the
value of his farm, including land, fen
ces, buildings, farming implements,
machinery and live stock; the cost of
fertilizers, the amount of farm wages,
the number of weeks of hired labor, in
cluding house work, the estimated val
ue of farm productions, and the average
of grass lands mown and the products
harvested in 1879 ; the horses, mules
and neat cattle, and their products on
hand June 1, 1880; the milk disposed
of, and the butter and cheese made in
1879; the number of sheep and lambs
on hand June 1, 1880, and the number
born, disposed of, slaughtered or lost
f rom different causes in 1879 ; the num
ber of swine on hand June 1, 1880; the
number of poultry on hand June 1,
1880; the eggs produced in 1879 ; a
statement of the crops in 1879 of bar
ley, buckwheat, Indian corn, oats, rye,
wheat, Canada peas, beans, flax in its
different forms, hemp, sorghum, and
maple sugar and molasses, broom corn,
hops, Irish potatoes, sweet potatoes,
apples and peaches, with the total val
ue of orchard products of all kinds; the
value of produce sold from nurseries;
the grape sold and the wine made ; the
value of produce sold from market gar
den ; the honey and wax produced; the
amount of wood cut in the forest, and
the value of all forest products.
The schedule of manufactures ex
cludes boot and shoe factories, cheese
and butter factories, flouring aud grist
mills, salt works, lumber mills and saw
mills, brick yards and tile works, paper
mills, coal mines, agricultural imple
ment works and quarries, which will
be reported on a special manufacturing
schedule. In the general schedule of
manufactures, the term "productive
industry" is used to denote not only
all factories and large works, but also
the mechanical trades, as blacksmith
ing, carpentering and coopering. Every
shop is to be included, the production
of which is SSOO annually, including
coat of materials, and the kind of busi- .
uess is to be described specifically. The
questions are as to the name of the cor- !
poration, company or individual; the
name of the business, manuiacture or
product; the capital invested; the :
greatest number of hands emplo3 T ed at
any one time during the year; the
average number of hands employed, in
cluding males above sixteen years, fe
males above fifteen years, and children :
and youth; the number of hours of or
dinary daily labor from May to Novem- (
ber, and November to May ; the aver
age day's wages for skilled mechanics
and ordinary laborers ; the amount paid
in wages during the year ; the months
in operation ; the value of material, in
cluding mill supplies and fuel; the
value of products, including jobbing
and repairing ; the kind and amount of
power used, whether water or steam.
The census year for the schedule of
mortality begins June 1, 1879, and
ends May 3, 1880. The important
point in this schedule is as to disease
or cause of death, including the prima
ry disease and the complication, if any.
Distinction as to paralysis, and in case
of suicide, the means employed is to be
stated. The general questions of the
schedule relate to age, sex, color, con
dition as to marriage, nativity of the
person enumerated, and of his or her
father and mother; the occupation,
month of death and cause of death of
the person ; the length of time of his or
her residence in the county ; the place
where the disease was contracted, and
the name of the attending physician.
There are seven supplemental schedules
relating to the "defective, dependent
and delinquent classes." They call
for an enumeration and an account of
the condition of insane persons, idiots,
deaf mutes, blind persons, homeless
children, persons in prison, and pau
pers and indigent persons supported at
the public expense.
The procession formed at the Court
House, Saturday morning at 8 o'clock
A. M., and then marched to the differ
ent cemeteries, in the following order:
Chief Marshal and aids.
Citizens Cornet Band.
Butler Cornet Band.
Aaron Sullivan Guards.
Soldiers of the late war.
Citizens in carriages.
After having decorated the graves of
the soldiers in the different cemeteries,
the procession then returned to the
Court House, and organized by elect
ing John T. Kelley Esq., President;
Messrs. A. Rusell and McLaugh
lin Vice Presidents, and the representa
tives of the press as Secretaries. After
a short prayer by Rev. Ferguson, the
President introduced the orator of the
day, Geo. W. Fleeger, Esq., who
delivered a short, but very appropriate
address, concluding it with a quota
tion, from that beautiful poem,
"Cover them over with Beautiful
Newton Black, Esq., was then intro
duced, and recited a short poem, en
titled, "We drank from the Same Can
A vote of thanks was returned to
the different organizations, which
turned out, and especially to the
school children and Soldier's Orphans.
The meeting then adjourned.
ON Friday last the first barrel of
flour from this year's wheat crop,
reached N. Y., from Amercus, Ga., and
was sold hv auction at the Produce
Exchange for sls. It will now be sent
to Liverpool, where it will be re-sold in
the same way, the proceeds to be de
voted to the repairs of the Episcopal
Church at Americus. Considering the
remarkaby early date at which the pro
duct came to market, and the worthy
object which its price is to benefit, it
seems to us that the members of the
Exchange were very tame in their
"bidding ;" surely here was a splendid
opportunity for vigorously "bulling"
the flour market.
THERE is every indication of a
stormy time at the Chicago Conven
tion, and the Grant managers arc evi
dently alarmed at the prospect. When
such men as Gen. Garfield, Gov. Fos
ter, Eugene Hale, and others of equal
National reputation as Republican
leaders openly announce their deter
mination to deny the right of a State
Convention to bind district delegates
by instructions and the unit rule, the
Grant triumvirate see that the ques
tion must be fairly met and settled by
the vote of the delegates. The tactics
by which Cameron, Conkling and
Logan have overborne the opposition
to the third term in their respective
State Conventions cannot be success
fully resorted to in a National Conven
tion. If they have enough delegates
pledged to Grant to nominate him,
they can afford to dispense with the
unit rule. If they have not, the friends
of all the other candidates will natur
ally combine to vote against the dic
tation of State Conventions. General
Garfield sums up the arguments which
will be used and which are not easy
to answer. He holds that the delegates
chosen to represent districts are
creatures of the district and not of the
State Convention, which has no right
to dictate how they shall vote. State
dictation—the unit rule—is the old
Confederate theory that the State is
