That Senator Clayton felt his defeat

the writer, escorting Lynch to the
chair, his face was deathly pale, hi9

lip was perceptible from behind his
heavy moustache. As he returned from

Norman Williams patted him on the

It was something after 11 o'clock
when the convention was called to or
der. A prayer was offered by Rev. Dr.
John II. Barnes, of the First Presbyte
rian church, in the course of which he
spoke of the vast moral and political
changes which the nation had under
gone, as indicated by the presence ot
him who now so worthily presided over
the convention, and he aked a blessing
on iho race and the common wealth and
the cause, which that gentleman repre
sented. He prayed that when the con
vention had dissolved it would have
presented to the suffrages of the na
tion for the highest office in the peo
ple's gift a candidate who, in personal
character, in devotion to duty, in loy
alty to American institutions, in cour
age and experience and wisdom should
woithily eucceed to
THE CHAIR OF WASHINGTON,
and thus help the nation to become not
only more prosperous and just and
peaceful, but also to be an inspiration
and a blessing to the struggling people
Gen. Geo. & "Williams, of Indiana,
chairman of the committee on perma
nent organization, reported that th
committee had selected G u. John B.
Henderson, of Missouri, for permanent
chairman, and would request the secre
tary to read the list of vice-presidents
and secretaries. Charles W. Clisbee,
of Michigan, was selected as principal
secretary. The report was agrcpd to.
The chair appointed Galusha A.
Grow, of Pennsylvania, Geo. F. Hoar,
cf Massachusetts, aud George B. Wil
liams, of Indiana, a committee to con
duct the permanent chairman to the
SPEECH OF GEN. HENDERSON.
jGen Henderson was received with
cheers. On reaching the chair he sptke
Gentlemeu of tiie Convention:
We have assembled to survey the past
history of the party, to rejoice as we
may because of the good it has done,
to correct its errors, if errors there be;
to discern if possible the wants of the
present, and with patriotic firmness
provide for the future. Our past his
tory is the union preserved, slavery
abolished, and its former victims equal
ly by our sides in the convention; the
public faith maintained, unbounded
credit at home and abroad, a currency
convertible into coins and the pulse of
industry throbbing with renewed
health and yigor in every section of a
FRCSPEROC 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 conflictsjhave
come a race of heroes and statesmen,
challenging confidence and love at
home and respect and admiration
abroad, aud now, when we come to se
lect a standard bearer for the approach
ing conflict, our chief embarrassment
is not in the want, but in the abund
ance of presidential material. New
York has her true aud tried statesmen
upon whose administration the fierce
aud even unfriendly light of public
scrutiny has been turned, and the uni
versal verdict is, "Well done, thou good
and faithful servant." Vermont has
her great statesman, whose mind is as
clear as the srystal springs of bis na
tive state, and whose virtue is as firm
as its granite hills. Ohio can come
with a name whose history is that of
the republican party itself. Illiuois can
come with one who never failed in the
discharge of a public duty, whcthei in
the council chamber or on the field of
battle. Maine has her honored favor
ite, whose splendid abilities and per
sonal qualities have endeared him to
the hearts of his friends and the bril
liancy of whose genius

Connecticut and Indiana may come
with names scarcely less illustrious
than these. And now, In conclusion, if
because of personal disagreements or
the emergencies of the occasion, anoth

THAT GRAND OLD HERO
of Kenesaw Mountain and Atlauia.
When patriotism calls, he cannot, if he
w,ould, be silent, but, grasping that
banner to him so dear, which he has al
ready borne in triumph, he will march
to a civic victory no less renowned
then those of war. I thank you gen
tlemen, for this distinguished mark of
The allusious to Arthur, Shermau,
Edmunds and Logan were heartily ap
plauded, but when Blaine was alluded
to as a man whose splendid abilities
and personal qualities had endeared
him to the hearts of his friends, and
whose brilliancy challenged the admi
ration of mankind
A STORM OK APPLAUSE
broke out, and on the stage, floor and
galleries, men stood up and, waving
their hats and handkerchiefs, cheered
again and again. The women also
took part in the demonstration, and
waved their fans and handkerchiefs.
After the first storm of 4 applause had
worn itself out, it was again renewed,
and once again, and was intepse, and
the enthusiasm was as marked and in
tense as that which characterized that
of 1880, at the time of Garfield's nomi
nation. It was five minutes before the
chairman was able to resume and finish

COMMITTEE ON CREDENTIALS.
Thfi committee on credentials has
been in session continuously for twenty
four hours, and up to 4 o'clock this
afternoon had only disposed of the
Seventh Alabama, First Georgia, Fifth
Kentucky, Second Illinois, and the Dis
trict of Columbia cases, leaving two
New York, two Pennsylvania, and the
remaining Kentucky cases undetermin
ed, and also the Virginia contest. In
the Seventh Alabama, R A Moseley
and Arthur Bingham, the regulars,
were seated over Warner and Hamlin,
contestants. The seated delegates are
Arthur men. A M Wilson and James
Blue were seated in the First Georgia
district over Johnson and Green. The
men admitted arc Arthur delegates.
In the Second Illinois district there was
a sharp contest, but Henry Jtuger and
Charles Piper, adherents of Logan,
were admitted. Two hours were ex
pended before a decision was reached
in the Fifth Kentucky case and the
contest resulted in the seating of E A
Wilson and Michael Arnton, Blaine
men, as against John Mason Brown
and Silas F. Miller. The vote stood 26
to 21. It is believed that the fight in
the case will be renewed in the conven
Gen. Powell Clayton, in an interview
today, said: "The assertion has been
made in certain newspapers that I had
pledged myself and the Arkansas dele
gation to 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. I
wt. f riendlv to him and do yet, and if
he had developed sufficient strength
in his state and other northern states
that give republican majorities, I
would have supported him, and I think
the Arkansas delegation would have
joined in this conclusion, although three
of the delegates have from the first
ADVERSE TO HIM.
Our state convention was the second
one held, Louisiana holding the first.
At that time no northern stato had
voiced its wiuhep, hence we had no light
on the subject of northern preferences
aud for that very reason our state con
vention gave no indication whatever as
to how its delegates should vote, it be
Ing generally understood that our un -pledged
delegation at Chicr.go should
be governed by the result of the con
ventions jn the states that gave electo
ral votes. Wrheu I ascertained that
Arthur had carried only about twelve
republican congressional delegations
in the nnion and had failed to carry
his own state, I reluctantly came to
the conclusion that his candidacy was
