Tho Second Day. '* TWO BRIEF SESSIONS. • Chicago, June 5.—Chairman Lynch mount- ed the platform in the convention ftt eleven o'clock-yesterday, smiling- and looking' neat and natty in a standing collar, black tie, and a blaekish-hlue suit. The delegates had not all seated themselves when at 11:20 he brought his heavy gavel down upon- the mahogany- topped table. A large basket of very hand- some- flowers rested oil the table's edge. They were roses, calla lilies, and petunias on a bed of smilax. The crowd upon the stage was as. great . as yester day, but the distinguished guests were not the same, showing that the tickets are fairly distributed. Ellhu B. Washburne was a prominent figure on the stage. Tho seats in the rear of the hall occupied by guests were not quite tilled. The hall presented a more ?a!a appearanee. Additional flags were put affove the building. "There waa also more animation and freedom than on the opening flay. The New York delegates filed into their scats in a body, presenting a very fine ap- pearance. Their entrance was greeted by the Band, which struck tip a lively air. The-proceedings were opened by prayer by the ltev. J. H. Burroughs, of this olty. At the conclusion of the prayer, at 11:30, Ithe Secretary began reading a memorial from' the American Temperance Alliance, of Mary- land. The memorial comprised tho resolu- tions adopted by the Central Committee of the State Temperance Alllande of Maryland, urging that the convention nominate a man who will advocate the suppression of the liquor traffic. Tho resolution was referred to the Committee on Resolutions. Mr. Massey, of Delaware, then introduced a resolution favoring the consideration of a res- olution to extend the Presidential term to six years. Mr. Plumb, of Kansas, introduced a resolu- tion to the effect that American lands should belong to those willing to till them and disfa- voring the land tenant system. Mr. Hawkins, of Tennessee, introduced a resolution that the delegates support thoir nominees, whoever they may be. A second to, this was moved amid applause. Mr. Hawkins, of Tennessee, speaking' In favor of the resolution, said that if the dele- gate was here who would not support the nominee he ought not to participate. George A. Kniglit, of California, hoped the resolution would pass. No one having the welfare of- the Republican party at heart should dare to vote down the resolution. Tho soonor.the men who would vote against It were fonnd out and were out of the Republican party the Booner tho party would be better off. What reason could this convention give l'or not sup- porting-its nominee? Mr. Curtis, of Kew York, amid applause, Baid that as a Republican and a free man he came to this convention, and as a Republican and a lree man he would go out of it. (Cheers.) '•No Ilepublican Convention," he continued, ."should cast a reflection on the gentlemen who composed it. The gentleman from California dares any one on this floor to vote against the resolution. I' say to him thftt the resolution is an insult. [Cheers.! In the name of Gartield and the Republican party the speaker asked Mr. Knijrht to with- draw the resolution, and asked tho conven- tion to remember to assume that every man present was an honest and honorable man, and to vote the resolution as unworthy to be ratified. [Applause.l Several members attempted to speak on the resolution, but the Chair ruled that speeches made on the resolution must be made alter- nately for and against, in accordance with the usages of the House of Representatives. Mr. Knight finally withdrew the resolution. The Chair then commenced the reception of reports of committees. The report of the Committee on Permanent Organization, recommending John B. Hender- son as Chairman, was adopted, with but-one dissenting vote. The Chair appointed Hon. Galusha A. Grow, of Pennsylvania; Hon. G. P. Hoar, ot' Massa- chusetts, and General G. B. Williams, of In- diana, to conduct the newly-elected Chairman Mr. Henderson was introduced by Mr. Lynch as Permanent Chairman, and at once pro- ceeded to address the Convention. He said: Gentlemen of the ConventionWe have as sembled to. survey "the past history of the party; to rejolco as we may because of the good it has done; to correct its errors, if er- rors there be; to discover, if possible, the wants of the present, and with patriotic firm- ness to provide for the future. Our past history is the* Union preserved, slavery abolished, and it-j former victims equally and honorably by our sides in this con- vention; the public faith maintained; un- bounded credit at home and abroad; a cur- rency convertible into coin, and the pulses of industry throbbing with renewed health and vigor in every section of a pros- perous and peaceful country. These are the fruits of triumphs over adverse policies, gained in the military and civil conflicts of the last twenty-four years. Out of these con- flicts has come a race of heroes and states- men, challenging confidence and love at home, respect and admiration abroad, and now, when we come to select a standard bearer for the approaching conflict, our chief em- barrassment is not in the want, but in the abundance, of Presidential material. New York has her true and tried statesman, upon whose Administration the fierce and nneven, unfriendly light of public scrutiny has been turned upon him, and the universal verdict is: "Well done, thou good and faith- ful servant." (Loud applause.) Vermont has her great statesman, whose mind is as clear as the crystal springs of his native State, and whose virtue is as firm as its granite hills. (Applause.) Onio can come with a name whose history is the history of the Republican party itself. '^S/inols can come with one who never failed in the discharge of public duty, whether in council chamber or on the field of ■ battle. (Applause.) Maine has her honored favorite, whose splendid abilites and personal qualities have endeared him to the hearts of his friends, and the brilliancy of whose genius challenges tho admiration of alL (Loud checring.) Con- necticut and Indiana may come with names scarcely less illustrious than these; (applause.) and now, in conclusion, if because of person- al disagreements,or tlic'emergencies of the oc- casion, another name is sought, there yet re- mains that grand old hero of Kenesaw Moun tain and Atlanta. When patriotism calls, he can not, if he would, be silent, but. grasping that banner, to him so dear, which he has til- ready borne in triumph, he will march to a civic victory no less renowned than those of war. (Cheers.) I thank you, gentlemen, for this distin- guished mark of your confidence. The Secretary read the following: Chairman of the Republican NdtionaX Conven- tion— Dear Sib: We have the pleasure, no leBSthan tho honor, of presenting to you a gavel which is made of wood from every State and Territory In the Union, including Alaska [laughter], ai&d the handle of it is from the old cnarter-oak tree of Hartford, Conn. [Ap- plause.]IThe gavel is a solid unit, and through it tho States speak with one voice. If the del- egates from all the States and Territories from which the gavel comes will act in a man- ner equally united, the business interests of the country will be conserved. Respectfully, A. H. Anurkws & Co. lAppiaose.] The gavel was accepted with thanks. Several resolutions were read and referred to the Committee on Resolutions. Among them was the following, presented by Mr. GeorgeS. Hoar, of Massachusetts: Whereas, The women of this country are citizens, producers, tax-payers, and are amen- able to au the laws of the land, civil and crim- inal, which they thus far have had no pan in making; therefore, " 0 Rnowtd, That we favor the right of the woman«evote. ... Johnsten^if California, offered a reaqtattan making the Commissioner of AgTictmafr'a Tho convention thetr took > a recess until seven o'clock. Tho o.'cnlng session proved to be brief and uninteresting. The Committee on Credentials was not prepared to report, therefore no busi- ness of importance could be done, and an early adjournment was taken until ten o'clock this morning. The only incident of the evening was an at- —npt-by Mr. Matthews, jof Illinois, to secure ■ ic issue of 000 additional tickets to tho con- dition, to be distributed to army veterans, l he resolution having this in view was lost l>y a large majority, tiokets having already been issued for all the seats m the hull. Dur- ing the debate Mr. Massey, of Delaware, pro- voked the laughter and jeers of the conven- tion by proposing that the extra tickets be distributed bv a select committee of Illinois delegates, tfhis was generally regarded as a scheme to pack the nail with Logan "boom- ers." Just as the convention was about to ad- journ, a: number of delegates arose and shouted ^r Ingersoll. It became apparent, however, that Ingersoll was not in the hall, and the shouts were changed to Oglosby. Order was restored, and the Secretary read tho following telegram from Oregon: I have to report that there Is no longer any doubt that the Republicans have carried a majority -of the Legislature of this State, which will secure a gain of a Sonator to the United States Senate. jTromendous ap- plause.] They have also elected a Republican Representative in Congress, and Oregon is safe for tho nominee of this convention for President. The convention then succeeded in adjourn- ing. The crowd seemed determined to stay in the hall, as only those in the rear umi poorest seats in the house made any movement to- ward taking their departure. Order was again restored by General George B. Will- iams, of Indiana. ExrSenator Oiclesby, of Il- linois, was introduced, and addressed the audience for nearly an hour. At the con- clusion of Mr. Oglesby'S speech, loud calls were made for Frederick Doug- lass, who came forward, but begged to bo excused from speaking, being somewhat indisposed by reason of a severe cold. Con- gressman R. G. Horr, of Michigan, followed in a brief address lasting about flfteeu min- utes. Many of the gentleman's witticisms called for the most uproarious laughter. At tho conclusion of Mr. Horr's speech the vast audience dispersed. THE SKIRMISH LIHE. .. . There was skirmishing all aloilg the line outside the convention hall yesterday. The leaders of both the Arthur and Blaine forces appeared uneasy", and were busier button- holing the delegates than at. any time before. ■ A strong determination was shown on both sides yesterday to hold out for the nomina- tion of either Bluiuo or Arthur. The leaders appeared to be organizing their forces against a dark horse, and among some of tho Arthur men there was discovered a well-or- ganized combination to . nominate Blaine rather than allow some one who has not made a fight to carry off tho prize.. The Edmunds men. who are expected to help Arthur through, claim this is simply au eHort to frighten them into supporting the President. On all sides the indications were that the leaders were preparing to hold out against a break. With this, evident determination star- ing them in the face, it begiua^-to look as if 'there would be a long siego of failloting. The fight will also be prolonged by the evident in- tention to have a poll on each ballot. The( object is to prevent a break as long as possi- ble, and show at the start just who the weak brethren are. The talk for General Sherman the past few days led to a small combination of ^delegates from Texas, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Mich- igan, who proposed to open headquarters for hun. B.efore doing so they called in General J. B. Henderson and asked him to lay tho matter before General Sherman. In reply General Sherman telegraphed that he would not ac- cept if nominated and would not serve if elected. The Blaiue people affedt to be much displeased at this turn of affairs, claiming that they had assurance that sixty Southern dele- gates had agreed to support their mall if Gen- eral Sherman's name was proposed. Two tendencies wero apparent in the allied ranks last night. One was to seek a combi- nation upon Lincoln or Hawley or Gresham. The other was an appeal of Arthur men to the Edmunds people to lend a sufficient num- ber of votes to the President to put his strength up to Biaino's in order to kill off Blaine. As a desperate chance the Edmunds men may make tho experiment. In case of such a move being: matte rUig'-ipllaine folks claim 383 votes on the first ballot. It is noticeable that Curtis, Roosevelt, An- drew White and other Edmunds leaders just now seoui of more importance and influence in anti-Blaine feeling than Warren, Hatton, Dutcher, Burleigh and the rest of tho work- ers. Allerton, of the independent Commit> tec, says Arthur is certainly defeated, and he hopes Blaine is also. Cliauncey Depew says a combination to beat. Blaine "is impossible. Present prospects are that balloting for President will not begin before Friday. The longer the choice of a candidate is delayed the greater the danger to the favorite. ;Yt a caucus of the Ohio delegation yester- day, which was held for the ostensible pur- pose of enabling the delegates to become ac- quainted with one another, an effort was made to pass a resolution instructing the Chairman to cast the vote as a unit if it would secure a nomination. Judge Foraker, leading the opposition, made a speech, tho torce of which led to the withdrawal of the' resolution. No-vote was taken, although the preferences as expressed showed that the lllaine faction would not be able toVleliver- if they undertook to bargain (he r ite of the State. The caucus, without lormal action, agreed that it would remain tii'iu in the suj.p >rt- of the individual prefer- ence' linti' there should be a break to Johu Snerniau. If no such bieak should oocur. ■ .i::d there should appear to be no hope ot Sherman's nominal ion, tho delegates will be allowed to vote as thoir preferences dictate, iiiiliie.iced oniy by the evident success of an- other candidate. . Tin l'.illo i;i;_r was scattered about yester- day: "Fr'.-tn a cai petit or'to Secretary of War. Alexander Kamsey, of Minnesota. Born in ivniisylvaiiia—sixtyieight years of age. Sec- retary of the Electoral College of Pennsyl- vania in isto. Four years a Representative in Congress from Pennsylvania. Four years Governor of the Territory of Minnesota. Mayor of St. Paul, Minn.

Ulysses S. Grant; tauner. James A. Garfield, towboy. Alexander Ramsey, carpenter." Tho Gresham men in the Indiana delegation think that Harrison's sudden departure for his home was entirely unnecessary. ■ They say that on the first ballot he will not be given a complimentary vote by his own State; that he will only receive support from sixteen of the delegates. The report gained currency that the course of Harrison was on the advice of friends who want him nomiuatedforthe Vice- Prcsidency, believing that ho will not bo placed at the head of the ticket. Tho Harri- son men claim that they have promises of Bupport on the second ballot from Pennsyl- vania, Ohio, New Jersey, Arkansas and Iowa. work of committees. The sub-Committee on Resolutions contin- ued its session last night. The various mem- bers submitted their views of the matters re- ferred to them. The opinionslwero reserved for presentation to the full committee at nine o'clock this morning. The talk of the-hotel lobbies is that;the platform will be generally aggressive on all questions of tho hour ex- cept the tariff and the coinage of silver. The sub-committee will, it is believed, report in favor of creating an Agricultural Department in the Cabinet The regulation of Chinese im- migration and labor will be insisted upon, and civil-service reform strongly indorsed. On the tariff question about an equal number are for and against material reduction. The re- port will recommend reforms of an incidental character. Nobody would express an opinion as to what ground the committee will take on the question of silver coinage. The general desire of the people f.or a restraint on the issue of silver was urged as an indication that the committee would recommend an abatement. On the other hand it was heid that the committee, by mak- ing a Colorado man the keeper of its, silver question information, had expressed a will- ingness to accept his views, which will favor the Government market for Colorado silver. The committee will oomplete the report In time for this morning's session of the conven- tion.. the clayton epi80de. General Powell Clayton, of Arkansas, made the following statement in the presence ot several members of the Arkansas delegation, yesterday: "The assertion has been made in certain newspapers that I had pledged myself and the Arkansas delegation to Mr. Arthur. and am now unfairly leaving him. The fact is that I have never spoken or written a word to him on the subject of his candidacy. 1 felt friendly to him and do yet, and if Jie had developed sufficient strength in his own State and other Northern States that give Kepui.ltcan majorities'. I would have sup- p.n-re ' hi «. and ; think :hc Arkansas delega- ti 'ii wo"! ! ha.ioived ine in this conclusion, iiltiiiiutrii tii-cc of i Ik/ delegates have from the li.-st b . .i a...i!>.-<.■ ,o lifln.

Ac *h"t thne no .Northern .! ■ o'-" 1 »'s wish***, hence we. had no light on the subject of Nortnera preference, and for that very reason our State Convention gave no indica- tion whatever as to how "its delegates should vote, it being generally understood* that our unpledged delegation at (Chicago should be, governed by the result of the conventions In the States that give electoral votes. When I ascertained (that Arthur had carried only about twelve Republican Congressional del-, egations ia the Union, and had failed to carry his own State. I reluctantly came to the conclusion that his candidacy was hope- less." Tho hiBtory of the deal by which Clayton's defeat was accomplished shows shrewd man- agement among the Arthur leaders. They were indignant over Clayton's desertion, and determined to punish him. The opportunity presented itself when the Massachusetts men evinced so strong a desire to beat Clayton that they were willing to com- bine against him. As soon as it was found there was a strong sentiment against the Ark- ansas men a poll of the entire convention was secretly made, by which it was ascertained that 442 would vote against Clayton to 378 for him, and .this would have been the actual vote yesterday had not some of the delegates voted under a misapprehension. There was then a question "as to who should be taken ud. The place was offered to ox-Senater Bruce, of Mississippi, but after a long discussion he declined it.?Then Congress- man Lynch was chosen, and at one o'clock Monday night consented to permit the use of his name. Governor Long, of Massachusetts, was called from his bed to ratify the selec- tion, and he, having done so in the name of the Edmunds men, tho combination was com- pleted. Its success was assured from the start, for enough votes to make it win had first been secured. notes. There is an extensive frafflc in convention tickets, tho prices varying according to th« location of the Beat. A ready sale is found foi all offered, and some buyers decline to sell at this time, thinking a prolonged session will enhance their value. The best in the market aro alternate tickets, while those in the gal- lery are least in demand. The prices range from ten dollars to thirty dollars for whole tickets and two dollars to five dollars for sin- gle admission coupons, the purchaser being required to deposit the full price of the ticket, the balance being refunded upon return of the ticket. In the few pools sold Arthur, Blaine and the field commanded about equal money, the field, in some instances, selling ahead of eith- er candidate. Most of the pools were $10 fore Arthur and Blaine, as first and second choice, $13 for the field, whye others were $50 to $35 on either Arthur or Blaine against the field. The latest pools sold at Riley's last evening were: Blaine $35, Arthur $27, Lincoln $9, Ed- munds $7, Logan $5, General Sherman $5, John Sherman $5, Gresham $5, field $5. An- other was: Blaine $30, Arthur $27, Lincoln $7, Edmunds $0, field $19. 0 Washington, Juno 5.—People here] do not take much stock in General Sherman's ex- pressed Intention to refuse to accept the nomination at Chicago if it should be given to him. His most intimate friends here have regarded him as a Presidential aspirant for nearly a year. He has always TTcclined to be considered as such, playing the same tactics that Tilcjen has in this respect. Tilden has declined to be a candidate so often that he now has the nomination in his hands if he decides in earnest to take it. General Sher- man is not so well provided for in regard to the nomination. Private telegrams have been received here from Chicago that Senator Miller, of Califor- nia, is being groomed as a dark horse, and that he has considerable strength offered him in case the more prominent candidates are floored. It is added that Miller is ignorant of the boom that is being worked for him, which discredits the entire story. New York, June 5.—The Times yesterday morning says: "One of the surprises devel- oped by the general discussion of the merits or the candidates; for President is the power which the name , of Robert T. Lincoln has among the common people of, this citv. Wher- ever tho subject has bfeen discussed among the men who work for their living and are not distinguished by the title of ' business men,' Lincoln has been found to be the favor- ite candidate. Barbers, car-drivers and con- ductors, policemen, small tradesmen of all kinds,who vote the Republican ticket, are al- most unanimous in the desire to see Mr. Lin- coln securo the nomination." London, June 5.—The Standard this morn- ing says: "At- no. time perhaps within the history of iAprica has it been less possible to forecast th^esult at Chicago. Tno voting will be simply a triumph of men; not a victory for measure,. Whatever tho result, there is no great issue at stake. It is difficult to say where the Democratic and Republican platforms differ. Tho chief importance of tbeipresentxonwntion consists, in deciding how far tho choice of a candidate can be In- fluenced by an Irish faction in favor of stirring up ill-blood between England and America.'' Cincinnati, O., June 5.—Ex-President Hayes arrived in the city Tuesday night, and attend- ed the meeting of the Loyal Legion last night. In conversation with friends ho oxuressed his opinion that next to John Sherman Robert Lincoln was the strongest expedient oaudi- date for tho Republican party to nominate, for the reason, briefly, that no power on earth could take away from Lincoln the colored vote of the South. Furthermore, if Tilden should be nominated by the Democracy against Lincoln as the Republican candidate, many powerful men of the South, notably Wade Hampton, would be completely disarmed, for the reason that there was a bit- ter feeling among these men against Tilden., It is riot understood that Hayes gave a reason forthis feeling, but it is supposed the reason lies in tho fact that Mr. Tilden refused to be- come aggressive against him in the famous eight to seven affair. Hayes was very posi- tive in his expression in favor of John Sher- man as the man who could carry the country. movements of the candidates. Washington, June 4. —The President's friends at the Capitol and at the White House express themselves as much gratified at the situation in Chicago. They feel that the pros- pect has greatly brightened in the past twenty-four hours. Senator Edmunds left Washington this morning, to be absent until Friday evening. He has gone, it is understood, to Farquhar County, Va., on private business. Senators Sherman and Hawley are spending the day in their respective committee rooms, dictating letters to their amanuenses, and at- tending to their usual Senatorial and personal Senator Allison is at work with Senator Hale in the committee-room on the appropriation bills. _ the democrats. W. C. Goudy, W. L. Scott, A. H. Brown, M. M. Ham and W. F. Villas, members of the sub- committee of the Democratic National Com- mittee from Illinois, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin, held a meeting yes- terday afternoon. The first business trans- acted was the selection of Richard J. Bright, of Indiana, as sergeant-at-arms. A number of local committees of arrangements were appointed. Members of the Finance Commit- tee were authorized to use 750 tickets in ob- taining subscriptions to defray the expenses of the convention. Members of ths Commit- tee on Hall were requested to ascertain whether the capacity of the Exposition hail could be enlarged, and to report the result of their inquiries to tho sub-committee. Barbarous Work of a Jealous Husband. St. Louis, Mo., June 5.—John Stanton, a steamboat engineer, threw nearly a goblet of sulphuric acid ovor his wife as she lay in bed early yesterday morning, inflicting in- juries which will kill her. Her eyes were burned entirely out and she is terribly burned on the face, neck, breast and shoulders. On a previous occasion Stanton shot his wife twice and then attempted to kill hlmsalf. Jealousy was the cause. Tally One for American Pork. Paris, June 5.—The Parliamentary Com- mittee of Inquiry into the importation of American salted meats has agreed to make a report allowing such imports after the meat is minutely examined by microseope or otherwise. Tho report at the same time urges the prohibition of the importation of fresh meats from the countries wher-e it is known trichinosis exists. □ England Preparing to Make a Protest.

Foreign Affairs, is preparing a note to the United States .Gov- ernment in relation to the collecting of cou- Sjiimev funds within the jurisdiction of the United States. __ v Congressional Nomination.
