A LITTLE UNFINISHED BUSINESS.

CHICAGO , Jane 2 , 10 p. m.r-When
the cill of s'a'es and territories was
supposed to have been finished , Gov.
McCormick , representing Arizona ,
stepped into the aisle m front of the
platform and shonted to tbe chair that
he desired to have read a resolution

Mr. Conkling There is objection.
[ Sensation and applause. ] Mr. Presi
dent , J arise to a question of order.
The chair The gentleman will state
bis question of order.
EOSCOE LAYS DOWN THE LAW.
Mr. Conkling It is this : The na
tional committee , through its proper
organ , prepared and-presented a roll
on which , as I am informed , the a'ate
of Louisiana , fur one , was omitted.
The territory of UUh , because of a
contest , was omitted. The resolution
under which the convention has acted
was based on that rule , and it has
been cilled , and I submit that it is
not in orJer after the execution of
that resolution to move either that
Utah , or Louisiana , or any other state
or territory omitted , now be placed
upon the roll. I hare no right to
speak on the merits of this qarst'on ,
but whenever the motion in .respect to
Utah is in order , I beg to be Jieard on
the merit ? of that controversy. [ Ap
OPINION OF THE CHAIR. , ,
The chairman The chair is of [
opinion that the roll is the roll pre
pared by the national committee , and
that the order of the convention em
braced in that resolution has been ex
ecuted ; but the chair can not hold as
* matter of order that it is out of order
to move now to call another territory.
Mr. Conkling Will the chair allow
mo to inquire of the chair whether it
is in order for me to move to amrnd
the motion by adding as well the state
) f Louisiana. I do not make that
notion , nor do I appeal from the da-
: : sion of the chair , but , with great r.-
ipoct to tbe chair , I beg to say that ,
ike many delegates around me , I
mderatood from the resolution of the
tentleman offering the motion that
he committee and all concerned were
0 abide by the agreed on rules.
Mr.fFrye , of Maine Mr. chairman
> eing a member of the national com-
nittee and having taken part in all
he proceedings of that committee
inco we have been in session in this
ity , I derire to say to the convention
, nd to tbe gentleman from New York ,
hat it was agreed by that committee
hat Utah should be put on the roll. '
Cheers. ] And Mr. Chairman , I de-
ire to say further , that the secretary
I-tbo national committee , standing
iy me , says that ho left Utah cff by
aistake. [ Cheers. ] Now , air , I a k
his copventicn if republicans are
tot willing to rectify a mistake made
y its secretary. [ Cheers. ]
Mr. Conkling I regret that the
onorable gentleman from Maine , who
s 10 able to make ns all hear , should
ave made a motion utterly misleading ,
1 what he now rays it true , and I do
ict doubt that it is. * Had that gen-
teman stated that herewas a mistake
n making up the roll he would have
teard no objection from me , and Mr. i
'resident in that event the convention
rould have heard no motion from me ,
ecausa all that was necessary to obtain
bo unanimous consent in this con-
ention was to siy that an error had
eon committed , and everybody would IE
ave been for the rectifiation of the IEm
listake. [ Cheers. ] m
Now , Mr. Chairman , I beg to ray m
lat upon the limple statement of the si
antleman from Maine that an error sitl
as been committed if he does not
ave the unanimous consent without a
lotion to correct it ( hall not be the

' to say that when I made my motion I
had just been informed that the name

until after my motion was made.

were sent to the committee.
When the call of the states had been

Resulved , That the committee on
ditribution cf tickets is hereby in

chairman of the Veteran Soldiers as

that the veterans expected to be treat

courtesy as by former conventions.

AH ADJOURNMENT MOVED.
When the bustle and confusion con-
equent upon the retirement of the
nembers of the committees had par-
iallv subsided , SonaUr Conklingwho
lad for aome moments been endeavor-
ng to attract the attention of the
ihair , was recognized and said :
"Mr. Chairman , there now four
iommittcea of the convention with-
Irawn to .commence their duties It
possible that ono or two of these
committees might bo able to report in
leaaon for an evening session , but
here is another one , or two , which
an not bo able to report before to-
norrow morning. Until the reports
ire received from those committees ,
nore especially from the committee
in credentials and contested seats ,
irtually no business can proceed in
he convention. Therefore , at the
uggeition of a number of delegates ,
i well ai in accordance with my own
mpreuiona , I suggest that our conve-
lience would -answered , and that
robably we should conclude our
bom as soon , were we now to ad-
Durn to a convenient hour in the
uorning. By 11 o'clock I should
lope that all tbe committees wonld
e ready to report , and then the ac-
aal business of tha convention may
egin , and that we may speedily con-
lade the work which has , m my be n
ef , so much to do with the future
relfare of the country. Therefore ,
( r. President , I move that this con-
ention do now adjourn , to meet to-
torrow morning at 11 o'clock. "
Eugene Hale , of Maine , arose from
la place , and began to speak. Before
is first words wera audible to any ex-
spt those in the immediate vicinity ,
[ r. Conkling turned and said : "And
withdraw the motion to allow the
onorable gentleman from Maine to
lake his suggestion. "
Mr. Hale said : "I only rise to say
lat it seems to me that the proposi-
on of the gentlemen from New York
one that dos accord with the busi-
ess of the convention. If wo had an

o discussion would arise , would re-

IB gentleman from New York may aiP'
revail , and that the committees may 01

question of contested state delegations
came up , and the Alabama contested

It was moved that the name of J.

readrto the effect that Mr. Rapier
was elected a de'egate , provided that

read , showing t'-at due notice had
been given Ripier , and that ho had
never complied with the provision. It
didn't appear that there was any pro

Special Dtopatch to Tbe Bee.
Cflicioo , ' June 3,1. m. The skir
mishing In the convention , in which
Conkling and Frye locked horns
awakened excitement among politira
workers , and the contest was the sub
ject of discu sion in every group.
Mr. Frye was ready to talk , as ho
sat at dinner late in the afternoon.
He is for Blaine , of course , and looks
for a strong showing for his candidate
from the start.
He was a-ked by a national asao
ciated press reporter what the little
flurry over Utah indicated , and he
sa < d : "It means that the Grant men
aw on the alert fur everything that
can by any posjibili'y ' count for tha
Blaine men. "
Reporter Did Mr. Conkling know
that Utih was left out on the call of
states by accident 1
Fryo Perhaps , but it looked a little
thin. He got out of it gracefully ,
though. I don't to-3 why he tried to
make a point against me by sarcas
tically alluding to the quality of iny
B. Do you think he is reconciled
to the abandonment of the unit rule ?
Fryo No , neither Conkling nor
Cameron are reconciled to its aban
donment. There is no telling how
their plans will crop out to-murrow.
There will be no graceful giving up.
Did you observe how worn and troub
led Cameron looked } Ma'.tera have
not gone as ho would have them , at
all ; his eiparieuce with the national
committee has nearly worn him out.
B. Do you think that in case
Grant is not nominated on the first
ballot there will bo a broak-at once 7
Frye No , the vote will pull along
between Grant and Blaine for several
ballotc , but there will be no balloting
until after a stormy time over creden
B. Then the compromise did not
sxtend beyond the repor .of , the dam-
mittee on credentials 1
Frye No , the compromise by no
means smoothed ma'ten , for tomor
row Conkling and Log n are prepared
to fight every inch of their way , and it
is by no neeans settled y-it that Gtaiit
irill be out of the way for two day * , if
B. What dors Maine eay about
lecond choice 1
FryeNot much so far ; but Ed-
nunds is coming forward strongly in
til tbo New England states.
B. How about Windom ?
Frye Windom is a very probable
: andidate. We can go to Windom
without any Hesitation in case he
promises to be nominated on tbe final
B. How do the Blaine men hope
to come forward after the initial bal
Frye They expect their strength
nrill come very largely from the Sher-
nan men , as aoou as the latter see
hit the Grant break does not help
hem. The Sherman men are trying
; o keep down his vote on the start , to
lave him from the knife that is now
limed at Grant.
E. Can Blaine stand the assault of
Frye Yes ; his men will stand by
lira to the last and every one of
them ai they did in Cincinnati in
B. What candidate do you think
iss grown stronger to-day ?
Frye Blaine , by all means ; and
rou will see to-night evidence in
> lenty that the city is full of Blaine
nen , and that his friends have so or
ganized themselves , in the convention
md out of it , as to astonish everybody
> eforo to-morrow night.
B. What do you think or tbe anti-
Jrant talk about not voting for Grant
n case ho is a candidate ?
Frye I think it is all wronp ,
bough any man ought to be dropped
he minute it is shown that he is not
he strongest man before the country
n all sections. No man covers tbo
rhole country like Blaine.
Conkling said in conversation with
ntimate personal friends that he >
ounts with certainty on 410 votes on
ho first ballot for Grant.
CHICAGO MAN'S EYE TO BIZ.
Oar reporter talked with Long John
Venlworth after the secret caucus.and
tesaid : "Oh , no ! We don't expect
o nominate Grant on the first ballot ,
'hero would be no fun in-that and
Ihicago would get no good out of the
onvention if wo sent them home so
oon. But Grant will be nominated. "
1IOAR EXPECTS NO CONFUSION.
Judge Hoar remarked to a repre-
jsentive of the national associated
ress : "The position of chairman is
ot one in which I take any great
ride ; It is , however , risky , as when-
rer a convention goes wrong the
lisirman b blamed. I , however , pre-
ict an orderly and harmonious con-
antion , as there is no party to the
jntest whose interest lies in the di-
iction of confusion. "
Judge Hoar retired early to get a
x > d night's rest for the coming or-
LAIN ! NOT AFRAID OF HIS BECOBD.
B'aine telegraphed one of his
iend * yesterday that should he bo
ominated he will bring the whole
istter of his personal record forward
t such a w y that the opposition will
s able to make no campa'gn issue of

i entirely too small to prevent an out-
