Appointment of the Committee—General J. B. Henderson, of AUMoarl, to c Be Blade Permanent Chairman. The Proceedings in Detail THE SCENE AT THE OPENING. Chicago. June 4.—The first session of the Eighth Republican National Convention was held yesterday morning in the Exposition Building. Eight hundred and twenty dele- grates, representing the Republican party, had come together to nominate candidates for President and Vice-President of the Republic. The doors of the Convention Hall were thrown open shortly after ten o'clock, but few people took advantage ot this to secure their seats, and it was not until an hour later that the vast chamber bogan to make a lively showing. From eleven o'clock until half past twelve, the hour at which the convention wag called to order, there was a constant stream of humanity pouring into the building, and every seat and every avail- able inch of standing room was occupied when the Chairman's gavel fell. It is esti- mated that between nine and ten thousand people were present. On the desk of the Speaker was placed a luge nosegay, while the front was appropri- ately^ decorated with a golden American eagle, tastefully draped with flags. AroUnd the gallery of the vast auditorium were the coats-of-arms of the different States. The dark banners of the delegates from the differ- ent States and Territories, lettered with gold- en inscriptions, stood conspicuously above the heads of the delegates who were seated on the main floor. To tlie left of the chair, peeping out from a bevy of handsome and magnificently attired ladies, is the venerable face and white locks of Ex-Governor Washburne, ex-Minister to France. A magnificent basket of roses, carna- tions and violets was sent to the Chairman's desk, the gift of H. F. Langdon and R. B. Percy, of Minnesota. Ex-Minister Foster, of Spain, was received with a round of cheers Trorn the gallery on making his appearance. The sound of music indicated the approach of the delegations. The first arrivals of delegates were four from Georgia, who came in very unobtrusive- ly and took their seats in the Georgia division about 11:15. Soon afterwards one or two Texans strolled in, then,a Michigan delegate, then one from Mississippi. Two Missourians svero next to arrive, and after that the Ohio delegation complete. Then came Nevada, then California, then Connecticut, then Virginia, then Arizona, West Virginia and South Carolina. The New York delegation, headed by George William Curtis and Theo- dore Roosevelt arm in arm, arrived at 11:55 o'clock in a body, seventy-two strong. They were followed immediately afterwards by the Massachusetts and Khode Island delegates. They come in by way of the press entrance, and, marching to the front of the stage, turned into the main aisle and thence to their seats. The Illinois delegation arrived at twelve o'clock precisely. The last delega- tion to arrive was from Virginia, which came in at 12:10, headed by Senator Mahone, who wore a yellow rose in his closely-buttoned Prince Albert coat. This delegation was the only one which occasioned a ripple of ap- plause. General Mahone acknowledged the compliment with a smile and a bow. The following members of the United States Senate are present at the National Conve'n- tiou to-diy: .uenators,Aldrich, Rhode Island; Blair, New Hampshire; Hoar, Massachusetts; Piatt, Now Vork; Miller, New York; Miller, California; Sewell, New Jersey; Alahpne, Vir- ginia; Palmer, Michigan; Conger, Michigan; Harrison, Indiana; Cullom, Illinois; Sabin, Minnesota; Plumb, Kansas; Manderson, Ne- braska; Howen, Colorado; Dolph, Oregon, and Jones, Nevada.

At 12:25 Senator Sabin, Chairman of the Na- tional Committee, called the convention to order, saying: "Gentlemen of the Eighth Na- tional Republican Convention, the hour hav- ing arrived for calling the convention to or- der, Rev. Mr. Bristol will lead in prayer." After the prayer Mr. Sabin spoke , as fol- lows: Gentlemen of the Convention: On be. half of the National Republican Committee, 8ermit me to welcome you to Chicago. As hairman of that;committee it is both my duty and pleasure to call you to order as a Na- tional Convention. This city, already known as the city of conventions, is among the most cherished of all the spots of our country -sacred to the memories of a Republican. It is the birthplace of Republican victory. On these fields of labor gathered early the fathers of our political faith and planned the irreat battle for the preservation of the union. Here they chose that Immortal chief that led us on to victory. Abraham Lincoln. " There are gathered in counsel here those gifted men who secured the fruits of the late war by calling to the first place of the Nation the foremost chieftain of the great contest, General Grant. Here was afterward witnessed that signal triumph which antici- pated the wishes of the Nation, by nom- inating that color-bearer of the party, that honest soldier, that thriving citizen, that representative American, James A. Garfield. Every Republican contest on this historical ground has been followed by signal success. In every contest fought on this spot, on this line of battle?until to day, victory has been with our banners, and so secure now is the in- tegrity of the Nation, so firmly imbedded in the Constitution and laws of the land, that, by general consent, the time is now arrived for a new disposition of the forces in contem- Elation of the new line of organization, and, avlng encompassed the defeat of our op- ponents, as on former occasions, the party is about to set its house in order, and take counsel in the management of its affairs. In the comparative lull of party strife which distinguishes the pres- ent contest there is observable an increasing disposition to look for the men who are to execute and the methods that are to guide them in the execution of the powers commit- ted to them for the management of the affairs of the country. ThiB convention finds itself constituted by a large majority of gentle- men who have been clothed with delegative nower by conventions in their several Con- gressional districts, and on this consideration may be grounded hope that the voice ol the people will beyond recent precedent be felt so that results may be seen in tittJUBPortof every lever of those princl- V': . pies by which the party has heretofore triumpned, and as it will triumph. When ewe consider the memories of the past so in- timately connected with this oity and with this building which the people of Chicago have so generously placed at your disposal, when we reflect upon the abandonment of personal ambition in the interests of the party welfare', you can "not wonder that the committee of the great Republican masses extend to you a most hearty welcome to this scineJb tbte constant hope that your efforts wiVesult in such ari~infusion of re- publican principles, and declare such a just appreciation of republicanism In the choice of your nominee, as to keep victory on the side of our ever victorious banners. In con- clusion* gentlemen, at the request Of the Na- tional Republican Committee. I propose to you as temporary!Chalrman of this convention the Hon. Powell Clayton, of Arkansas." Immediately following the conclusion Oi 8enator Sabin's address Henry Cabot Lodge, of Massachusetts, immediately rose amid applause and presented the name pf the Hon. John R. Lynch as a substitute for that of Clayton, amid immense applause. A call of the roll on the motion was ordered. The call of the roll was interrupted by W. W, Morrow, of Californla. who secured the floor, and in a brief speech opposed Clayton as Chairman, counseling unity before proceeding farther. At the end of his re- marks George W. Curtis, of New York, defended the action of tne committee and supported Clayton. Mc. Sabin announced that the roll would be called, when John Stew- art, of Pennsylvania, addressing the conven- tion, characterized it as a stigma upon the National Committee to do anything in opposi- tion to the action of the National Committee. Mr. Stewart sat down amid wild cheers and cries for the roll-call, Mr. Horr, of Michigan, asked for a settlement of the question by a call! of States. Be was frequently interrupted by cries of "roll- call." Mr. Prentiss, of Missouri, took the floor and urged Mr. Clayton's claim to the Chair- manship, in accordance with the National Committee's aotlon. Mr, Roosevelt, of New York, then took the floor In advocacy of Mr. Lynch's claim, ending his Speech by ex- pressing the hope that he Would be elected. General Clark E. Carr, of Illinois, took the floor and favored Clayton's election, saying he hoped this convention would not put a stigma on the man who carries an honorable empty sleeve. His remarks were greeted with loud cheers. W. N. Taft, of South Carolina, made a stirring speech favor- ing Mr. Clayton. Mr. Winston, of NewYork, said the action of the National Committee was merely a recommendation or suggestion. He proposed to cast his vote for the gentle- man from Mississippi. The chair read a rul- ing by Senator Hoar, of Massachusetts, ap- plying to a case identical wjth the present one, leaving the matter in the bands of the chair. Mr. Sabin, therefore, called for a vote by individuals. Loud calls were made for the r&ll. William G. Green, of Maryland, spoke briolly, favor- ing Mr. Lynch. Mr. Thurston, of Nebraska, thought those present could better afford to stay here a day or two or a year rather than do Injustice to any man. He favored Mr. Clay- ton, whom he believed was the choice of the convention. M. W. Benjamin, of Arkansas, eulogized Powell Clayton, to whom he gave tho credit of suppressing the Ku-klux. He presumed everybody here had their minds made up, and to cut the matter short he called for the previous question, and the secretary began palling the roll. The' struggle over the temporaryChalrman- ship was ended soon after three o'clock by the election of Ex-Congressman John R. Lynch, of Mississippi, a pronounced Arthur man, over ex-Senator Powell Clayton, of Arkansas, who was for Blaine. The vote stood: Lynch, 432; Clayton, 387. The result was received by the Arthurand Kdmunds element with deaf- ening cheers, and correspondingdesDondency on the part of the Blaine and Logan cohorts. The colored delegates were particularly hila- rious,owing to the fact that Mr. Lynch, who;is an ex-Congressman from Mississippi, is a man of their own shade of color. Messrs. Clayton, of Arkansas; Cabot Lodge, of Massachusetts, and Taft, of South Car- olina, conducted Mr. Lynch to the chair. He gracefully acknowledged his thankfulness for the compliment to him°and his race in- volved in nis election, and announced his' readiness to await the pleasure of tho conven- tion. . On motion of Mr. Russell, of New York, the convention elected Mr. Sheard, of New York, anu Mr. Lee, of Pennsylvania, tempo- rary Secretaries. The rules of the last convention were adopted until tho permanent organization should be perfected. The chair then callod for the name of the delegates to serve on the various committees —Credentials,- Resolutions Rules, Order of Business, etc. Most of the names were agreed upon a day or two ago, and have been published. Mr. Perce, of Massachusetts, offered the following: Resolved, That tho subject of revisod appor- tionment of delegates to future National Con- ventions, and of the revised apportionment of members of the National Committee, be re- ferred to the Committee on Rules and Order of business, with leave to report at any time before the ballot for President. The resolution was adopted after some de- bate. Mr. Donan, of Iowa, offered the following memorial, which, after some debate, was ordered read, and referred to the Committee on Resolutions: To the National Convention of Die Republican Tartu: We, the members of the Women's Christian Temperance Union of the United States, herein represented by the signatures of our oflicers, while believing that while the poison habits of the Nation can be largely re- strained by an appeal to Intellect through argument to the heart through sympathy, and to tho conscience through tne motives of religion, believe that the trallic in those poi- sons will be best controlled by. prohibitory law. We believe that the teachings of sci- ence, experience and the golden rule com- bine to testify against the traffic in alcoholic liquors as a drink, and that the homes of America, which are the citadels of patriotism, purity "and * happiness, have no ene- mies bo relentless as the Ameri- can saloon. Therefore, as citizens of the United States, irrespective of Bex or religion or section, but having deeply at heart the pro- tection of our homes, we do hereby respect- fully and earnestly petition you to advocate and adopt such measures as are requisite to the end that prohibition of the importation, exportation, manufacture and sale of alco- holic bpverages may become an integral pari of tho National Constitution, and that youi candidate shall bo by character and public life committed to a National prohibitory con- stitutional amendment. The resolution offered by Mr. Russell, ol NewYork, on behalf of the Irish-iNational League, relating to the ownership of land by foreigners, was read and referred. □The convention then adjourned until eleven o'clock this morning. • i convention notes. The Committee on Permanent Organization met in room 17 of the Grand Pacific at nine .o'clock last evening, and chose General John B. D. Henderson, of Missouri, for permanent Chairman of the convention. This is a victory for the Arthur men. General Henderson was to have seconded the nomination of Arthur. Galusha A. Grow, of Pennsylvania, was the candidate of the Blaine men. They appeared confident of eleoting their candidate, and would not agree to the proposition of the oth- er side to wait until to-day when the eight members of the committee who were absent might have a chance to vote. Senator Hoai and J. R. Lynch, the temporary Chairman, who had been put in nomination by Arthur men, were accordingly withdrawn, and the vote was taken on tne remaining two candi- dates. 'The vote stood 22 for Henderson and 17 for Grow. The committee adopted the va- rious reports of the States aa to other offlcere of the convention. 0 • The Committee on Credentials met at the Grand Pacific last night, and after a two hours'discussion elected Henry Ballard, of Vermont, temporary Chairman. Messrs. W. W. Crapo, of Massachusetts, and ,J. F. Fort, of New Jersey, were nominated for per- manent Chairman. The vote was a tie, and remained so for several ballots with no sign of a break for either, and finally Mr. Ballard was made tho choice for permanent Chair- man, and Mr. Edwin Nichols, of Michigan, for Secretary. The first case called was the First Alabama District. After a long 6iege the committee voted to seat the regular dele- gates, Messrs. James E. Slaughter and Frank Theatt, by a vote of 29 to 15. The Illinois contest was postponed to nine o'clock to-day. General Fisher, the member of the committee from Pennsylvania, was called to the door and the withdrawal of the contestants for the Twenty-second District of that State was handed to him. This seats Messrs. C. L. Magee and William Fllnn, Ar- thur men. «,The Committee on Rules ' organized last evening, with W. H. Parks, of California, as Chairman, and Henry B. Atherton, of New Hampshire, as Secretary. The rules of 1880, up to" No. 10, were adopted, with changes In rules 2 and 9. The former was made to read: "The convention shall be governed by general parliamentary law? taking Cushing's manual as authority, except so far as provided for in the rules fol- lowing." Rule 9 was made to read ^ "No mem- ber shall speak more than once on the same question nor longer than five minutes unless by leave of the convention, except in the pre- sentation of the names of candidates." The matter referred to the committee by the convention in regard to apportion ment of representation in the National Committee and National Convention was informally discussed and developed some op* position from the Democratic States. Wiui reference to the National Committee it is thought .the committee wiiLreecaopenAlhW eacIfState having a majority oT Keputolioah Congressmen be accorded one additional member on the National Committee. The Democratic States will strenuously oppose a decrease in the representation in the National Convention. The Committee on Resolutions met last evening at the <Grand Pacific Hotel. Hon. William MoKinley, of Ohio, was elected Chair- man, and Hon. William Walter Phelps, of New Jersey, Secretary. A sub-committee was ap- pointed, consisting of Cabot Lodge, Massa- chusetts; John H. Roker, Indiana: George R. Peok, Kansas: Major W. C. Elan, Virginia; J. M. Bynum, MlsslsslAl; 8. H. Elbert, Colora- do, and Horace DavlB, California. The sub- committeemen are appointed to repwsent j prominent ideas that will be embodied in the Slatform.Mr. Davis being considered well qual- ed to dictate as to the Chinese policy. Judge Elbert the silver policy. Major Elan the con- dition of the South, Mr. Bynum education, Mr. Boker agriculture, and Messrs. Peck and Lodge the tariff. The committee received many opinions, and communications repre- senting the ideas of various factions and in- terests, that of the trade unions being as fol- lows: "Protect American labor by disowning Whitelaw Read." Mr. Alexander Sullivan, on behalf of the Irish National League, pre- sented a memorial asking- the convention to request Congress and the States to enact proper legislation making American citizen- ship a qualification for the ownership of real estate, the object being^to prevent the control of foreign capital of large tracts of land, such as have been taken up on the frontier. The memorial set forth the arguments in favor of such legislation among which were the hatred by the foreigners of American institutions and the outpouring of a revenue in the way of rentals and profits. The memorial was signed by the committee: Mr. Alexander Sullivan, Illinois; Rev. Charles O'Reilly, Michi- gan; Dr. Thomas O'Reilly, Missouri; W. M. Collins, Kentuoky, and James Reynolds, Con- necticut. The Missouri delegations met at the Palmer House yesterday to perfect their organization. Major Warren presided, and the following of- floers and committeemen were chosen: Chairman. J. B. Henderson; Secretary of Convention, O. C. Hill; Vice-President, Gen- eral B. M. Prentiss; Committee on Creden- tials, C. H. Burton; Committee on Permanent Organization, J. B. A. Upton: Committee on Rules, Ira B. Hyde; Committee on Resolu- tions, R. W. Cramer; member of the National Committee, Judge R. T. Van Home. Members of the National Republican Com- mittee, in addition to those already an- nounced, were chosen yesterday by various State delegations, as follows: Florida, Joseph H. Durkee; Illinois, David T. Littler; Missouri,!*. T. Van Horn; Kansas, John A. Martin; Kentucky, J. Z. Moore; South Carolina, John B. Johnson; Minnesota, D. M. Sabin; Texas, C. C. Binckley; Nevada, M. D. Foley; Vermont, G. W. Hooker. California and New Jersey postponed their elections until after'tbe nomination. General John B. Henderson, who has been selected as permanent Chairman, was one of the United States ,Sena tors who voted against the Impeachment of President John- son, and ranked in those days with Trumbull, Doollttle, Fessenden, Tipton and Ross of Kansas. Holding an appointment under B. H. Bristow, General Henderson was the Dis- trict Attorney who prosecuted the members of the whisky ring in St. Louis. He was re- moved by President Grant, and was super- seded by Bliss. To-day the real test of Blaine's strength may be expected, provided the Commit- tee on Credentials makes its report. The Blaine men will strain every nerve to defeat the Mahone delegation, whose leader they denounce as a vile traitor. Of course, every delegate who Really desires the nomi- nation of Blaine above anybody else will vote for the admission of the antl-Mahone, delegates from Virginia, who are understood to be solid for Blaine. The real strength of the Arthur vote may perhaps come to a test on the Illinois contest, but Jt is doubted that there will bo any serious tight except on tho Mahone matter. - 7 The opinion that neither Arthur nor Blaine will be nominated was stronger last night than eyer, but only a few ventured to be positive about the prospects of any of the other candidates now in the race or likely to be brought out. Of the defeat of Clayton for the temporary Chairmanship the Tribune sa.ys editorially: It was intended by the organizers of this combination that the defeatof Clayton should be heralded as an anti-Blaine victory, but there are several circumstances which divest it of such moaning. ■ In the first place, Lynch was not nominated squarely and openly to represent the candi- dates antagonistic to Blaiue. If this issue were to be made it should have been frankly avowed. On the contrary, Lynch was nomi- nated and his claims were urged by those gentlemen who made speeches in his behalf on the ground that- some special recognition ought to be given to tbe colored Republicans. If the vote between Clayton and Lynch may be regarded in any sense as a test of the Blaine strength, in the convention, then it must be rather discouraging to the partisans of the half-dozen other candidates, for a com- bination of the. other interests and all the clap-trap used to develop the sympathy for the oppressed colored voters did not prevent General Clayton from receiving 387 votes. If that figure be a correct gauge of Blaine's active strength in the convention he wilt be so far in the lead of every other candidate that the prospects of his nomination may be re- garded as more flattering now than they have been at any previous time, and the gun which had been loaded so carefully really missed fire. The Inter Ocean says: The vote which over- threw Clayton has its chief significance in the fact that, while tbe Arkansas trade was in Blaine's interest, Clayton himself received the support of tnree-fourths of the Logan men and that of one-half of the frlenas of Harrison, Sherman and Hawley. It is certain that Clayton received all the votes that Blaine can ever get In this convention under any circum- stances. It is probable that many votes were cast for him because it was in some sense tbe common law of the party to ratify the choice of the committee. But however that may be, it .is quite certain that Blaine can never stronger as a candidate for President than Clayton, with his re-enforcement of Logan, Sherman, Harrison and Hawley votes, was as a candidate for temporary Chairman. Augusta, Me., June L—James G. Blaine reached his home last evening. His friends here telegraphed him early in tne day tender- ing a public reception, which he at once de clined. On his arriving at tbe station he had to pass through a large crowd to his carriage, ana drove promptly to his home. On th< journey large numbers of people cheered him, but he declined to make any response except to raise his hat as he stood on the plat form. There is no truth in the report that a special telegraph wire has been placed in Mr. Blalne'i house, nor has he sent a telegram of any kind whatever to Chicago. During'hls homeward, journey be made no expression whatever a< to his own prospects or the prospects of any other candidate before the Chicago Conven- tion, but, on the contrary, pointedly?and re- peatedly declined to do so. Mr. Blaine ap pears to be in excellent health and spirits. Washington, June 4.—Postmaster-Genera! Grcsham has received propositions from In- fluential quarters, including two Southern delegations and the Chairman of a Northwest ern delegation, pledging their support if he would permit the use of his name. lie re- plied that it must not be as long aB Arthur wai in the field. National Union League. Chicago, June 4.—The. Executive Com- mittee of the National Union League held a meeting in the Palmer House last night Colonel Thomas R. Rich, of Maryland, pre- sided. In the absence of Hon. H. S/ Aus- tin, Mr. George H. Harlan, of Chicago, acted as Secretary. Messrs. L. J. North Spates, of Colorado, and Hon. A. M. Clapp, of Washington, D. C., were appointed a Committee on Credentials* A member of the committee was on the point of presenting a resolution indorsing General Logan for President when he was advised not to do so by the majority of the committee for the reason that -the commit- tee stood ready to • indorse, whole-souled, the nominee of the Republican party, who- ever he might be. On motion it was re- solved to hold a meeting immediately aftei the adjournment of the convention to ratify the nomination. Naval Academy Graduates.
