NEW YOHK , October 5. The enor
mous crush of politicians made the
corridors of the Fifth Avenue hotel
impimsiiblc. The excitement was no *
great , except over thu chances for ad
mission , this being in unusual demand
and impossible to got. So badly had
the arrangements been made that
m many delegates had not got cards half
an hour before the convention met.
The state committee met in the par
lors of the Fifth Avenue hotel at 9 a.
in. There was a full attendance. Ex-
Senator Platt presided. At that hour
all hopes of any agreement
between the two factions had been
Abandoned , although there was less
feeling of hostility than at the meeting
of the compromise committee. When
it ended at 12:30 : this morning the
state c' mmittco had an entire stalwart
majority of 10 to 6 und proceeded to
make up the formal roll of the con
vention and of course held a secret
session. Those put on the roll were
understood to bo'almost or quite stal-
wajf ( Humor had it that "these changes
"lihd'iuako up of tLo roll would . ivo
the stalwarts a majority of the con
vention. This was denied by the out-
aide stalwarts and is not believed by
the half-breeds , who think- that the
election of the state committee will bo
fair in spite of the stalwart majority ,
and that the latter will do more har
moniously 'than was expected a few
hours ago. At 10:30 : a. m. the state
committee was still in secret session.
NEW YORK , October 5. 11 a. m.
Gen. Curtis , of St. Lawrence county ,
onttred a protest against the admis
sion of a certain delegation , but was' '
overruled and the roll call proceeded.
"
Senator Conkling's "namo was not
called as ono of the Oneida county
delegates , but that of his alternate.
NKW Yonic , October 5. The com
mittee htia adjourned after agreeing to
make ox-Congressman F. Hiscock
temporary chairman with the proba
bility that ho would be made perma
nent chairman. This was agreed to
by the whole 19 stalwarts , the half-
breeds voting , at Collector Robinson's
suggestion , forWarnorMiller. Sharpe ,
in the convention , will muko a speech
and nominate Hiscock for temporary
chairman. An amendment will be
made to put in Miller , and 'tho Jialf-
breeds expect to force this to a vote
and test the mutual strength.
-TIIK CONVENTION CALLED TO ORDEIt.
Ex-Senator Platt called the con
vention to order at 11:10. : 1'rayor
was offered by Ilev , Dr. Hastings , of
the Forty-secona street Presbyterian
church. At 11:20 : the roll call was
ordered , and is now being called.
.Ex-Senator Platt refused peremptory
to nominates Senator Miller , and the
demand was insisted upon by the half-
breeds.
NEW YOIIK , October 5 , 1JU45 a. m.
"Warnor Miller has just been elected
temporary ohairinan of the republi
can statu convention.
NEW YOIIK , OctoberD. There were
several verbal corrections made on the
list , and ono delegation asked that the
members not named who were seated
on the pla'Jorin should sit with the
delegates. Platt announced that all
delegates must take their places on
the floor , Speaker Sharpe then got
the floor and said ; "Pursuant to the
.action of the atato central committee
I nominate for the position of tempo
rary chairman Hon. Frank Hiscock. "
[ Applause. ]
Mr. Hiscock got the floor and wa
interrupted by Mr. Ponioroy , who de
manded the floor , which was given to
Hiscock. Ho said : "I must , Mr.
'President , peremptorily decline the
nomination. "
Sharpe Notwithstanding Hiscock
declines the temporary chairmanship
I must insist on my right to vote , for
which I call. [ Applause. ]
Pomoroy Understanding , as I do ,
that the nomination of Hiscock is
against his wishes and against his
consent , I nominate in his stead for
temporary chairman , Hon. Warnur
Miller. [ Prolonged applause ] .
On motion of lilm , the rules of thu
atato assembly were adopted us the
rules of the state convention ,
Tlio roll was then called. Hiscock
and Bliss , both supposed to bo clost >
to the president , further voted fuv
Miller. The vote then stood : Miller ,
208 ; Hiscbok.lDO. On a call for a
unanimous vote there woro'.afow soaU
tcriiig noes. Mr. Miller then took
the scat with cheers nnd began apeak-
> B.
MILLKHS HIT.ECU.
Ho said that ho accepted the elec
tion as a testimonial of the regard of
the party to Garfh'ld , ( Cheers , )
upon whoso eulogy ho entered , nnd
xvns heartily applauded. With the
first mention of President Arthur's
name there was applause and ko was
eulogized as first nnd foremost in the
sympathy and support of the party ,
as ho had boon for many years. Wo
hide all old enmity of party and moot
hero to-day ns members of the repub
lican party of the United Statei.
[ Applause. ] Its record can never bo
effaced and if any party has n claim
on the confidence of the country it is
our own ; but if they fail to nporeciato
the issues of the hour they'will go
into the history of the country with
their predecessors. That is fur thu
party , largely by its action to-ilay. to
determine. At present tliOj gro.it
majority of tlio country is
unwilling to accept of tiny | other
part1 in power. The questions
of administrative reform , flhance ,
and internal improvements nr4 para
mount. The party still has till con-
fidunco of the country throu hout.
The party has scon that the h nesty
and integrity uf the country hai boo n
preserved. The present admii istnv-
tiou only comes to you in const uinco
with the views and work of t o last
fifteen years. Wo all know the esult
of the successful funding mov niont
and other propositions adopted > y the
recent republican admiuistri xtions ,
which havo'saved us $50,000,000 an
nually in interest , and now wnfwant
protection of homo industry und .home
labor , which is practically brought
about under the present laws ,
( Applause. ) and no philosophy
of free trade can overcome
them. Laboring men are better haid ,
better housed and better clothed than
those ot any other country. Of \ our
commerce 1 call say that supremacy
went from us with the war , but the
time has come for rebuilding it arid to
see American ships in every par.t of
the world. All the powers of ( the
government now rise from the gQiJoral
government and not from the stijtes.
Civil.sorvico reform has passed out of
the line of discussion and it is now
only a question of how it shall1 bo
done. It is a fixed fact and repudiates
the old democratic view of "to the
victors belong the spoils. " This is not
u government of oilico seckora. Mr.
Miller alluded to the manufacturing
facilities of the country ; to the cause
of education and the future of the
party , and , in conclusion , thaukcd thu
convention for the place given him ,
A temporary secretary was tlien
chosen and Senator Wooden moved

REl'OllT Ol' COMMITTEE ON UOSXESTE1J
HEATH.
It was not until 8:05 o'clock that
the convention was called to order , the
delay being caused by the failure of
the committee on contested seats to
report before that time. Gco. Bliss
read the report. Among the delega
tions unseated by a vote of 12 to 4
were Koscoo Conkling and other sit
ting delegate * from the first Oneida
district , and the following were seated :
Samuel K Lowry and tellbw-contes-
tants by a unanimous voto. They al
lowed the George W. Curtis delegation
from Richmond county to retain their
seats and by n unanimous vote
decided against the admission of
the irregular delegations in New York
city. The committee concluded the
report by a resolution that all ques
tions of a reorganisation of the party ,
both in the city and other districts , bo
referred to thu HUte committee with
power to act in every case. Thin ,
after some discussion , ( vas not acted
upon , but was made a special order
for action after organization. The
balance of the report was unanimously
adopted. The sitting delegates who
were unseated by the report were
allowed to remain in the hall and take
seats upon the stage , nnd their va
cated seats in thu body of the
academy were taken posBcssion of
by the admitted contestants. This
done , ex-Speaker Husted , of the com
mittee on organization , reported that
the committee had agreed upon Hon.
Oliauncoy Jtt. Dopew as permanent
chairman. This report was adopted
unanimously , amid great applauso.
Senator Miller , the temporary chair
man , appointed Speaker Sharpe and
Theodore M. Pomeroy as an escort to
Dopew , and they accompanied him.
from his seat to the platform , where
his presence acain inspired loud ap
plause. Dopow thanked the conven
tion for the honor conferred upon
nim , and in a short speech outlined
what ho believed to bo the future pol
icy of the republican party upon ques
tions of national finance , honor , edu
cation and political economy , Ho
dealt upon the question of civil ser
vice reform , nnd said that recent
events had forced the question upon
the people. There was no further
escape jfroiii practical consideration
nnd proper settlement. The American
pcoplo would no longer tolerate such
an infamous political system as that
which made possible the assassination
of such n president as Uarfiold was.
The common pcoplo. who furnished
Garfield the republic , know now
where the cancer was in the body
politic. They would insist on its
complete removal. Dopow then paid
a Blowing tribute to the virtue ,
ability nnd patriotism of President
Arthur , and hoped that every repub
lican in the country would extend
him thu Biimo individual support
which they gave him when they voted
for him on the same electoral
ticket as Garfield. After the
conclusion of Dcpow's speech Hus-
ted offered a resolution that the re
publican party of Now York favor

committee on resolutions.

Sruiuoi'iKU ) , ILL. , October D.
Governor Cullom has offered a reward
of 9500 for the capture of the notorious
rious Williams brothers , who recently
turned up in' Pike county , and killed
the sheriff of Calhoun county , who
attempted to capture them , besides
wounding two of the posse. Since
that time they have been roaming
around Calhoun county and have had
little trouble in avoiding capture.
They seem to obtain considerable aid
from citizens of Calhoun county , cith
er through fear or friendliness , and
their capture has been found thus far
to bo impossible. Ono of their recent
exploits was to ride into a small vil
lage saloon and order the drinks for
a crowd of loafers. The loafers
drank , but the desperadoes did not.
They promptly rode away and no ono
attempted tomoloat them. They are
heavily armed and carry a Henry rifle
and a powerful field glass , by the aid
of which they have boon able to de
tect pursuers long before they are dis
covered by the oflicors. Their capture
will bo a big feather in the cap of the
ollicor who effects it.

WASHINGTON , September 5. The
alleged filar routu conspirators , Gen.
Brady , J. JJ. French , S. P. .Brown
and Capt. W. H. Turner , appeared
before Judge Cox in the criminal
court this morning. Judge Cox fixed
bonds at § 0,500 in tlio cases of Brady

Judge Cox informed the counsel for

THE ADMINISTRATION.
Washington Special to Cl.kaj ; Times.
riiKMiDENT Aimiun'a POLICY.
Secretary Kirkwood returned to
day , and is the only member of the
cabinet notv in the city. Ho does not
know yet whether Mr. Arthur will
need him in his cibinot , and like
most other people hero , docs not ex
pect to know until about the time the
senate meets , if then. Like all his
colleagues in Garfiold's cabinet , ex
cept MauVeigh , 1m will probably con
sent to stay without any great
amount of urging. The gossip of the
day indicates a growing impression
that Arthur will administer the gov
ernment on n policy purely his own ,
and to that end will cull about him u
cabinet : composed of men more in
sympathy with his views than those
who are at present at the head of the
several departments. But
CHANGES AUE NOT LOOKED FOH
in the near future. Having gene to
Now York , as is supposed , to har
monize , so far as possible , the warring
elements of the party there , it in ex
pected that ho will take care not to an
tagonize those ho in now anxious to
molify by making any wholesale
change. It seems to bo understood
that Grant will not give up his private
interests for any place in the cabinet ,
and as he has been spoken of chiefly
as the probablosucccssorof Mr. Blaine ,
it is not unlikely that the latter gen
tleman will lomain as long as he
wishes. How lonir ho may find it
pleasant to do BO , of course , is prob
lematical. A western member ot con
gress who hnu recently spent some
days in Now York says that state and
city will bring all the pressure pos-
iiiblo to boar to place u Now Yorker at
the head of
TICK TUBAHVRY ;
and this , lie added , will bo stoutly re
sisted by tRo otttiro west. There is a
strong sentiment hero in favor of the
retention of James in the postofQce.
The prosecutors of the star route cases
insist that their great reliance is in him
and if a change is inado it will greatly
endanger their chances of success.
Ho ia being quito warmly backed by
the press of the east and by many
politicians of influence , but it is quito
probable that the result of Wednes
day's convention in Now York will
have inoro to do with the settlement
of his coso than all other influences
combined. If the stalwarts are rough
ly handled , a < r it * now seems probable
they may bo , it is not improbable that
the victors , some of whom are now in
high federal position in New York ,
may bo made to
FEEL TUB IHON IIEKL
of tliu oppressor , just to keep them
from being puffed up with tlio vain
glory of earthly things. To do this ,
more changes uro likely to bo inado
huro than will otherwise bo thought
necessary. These changes , it is
thought , would include the retire
ment of Mr. James , in order that
Mr. Conkllnt. ' , or eotno New Yorker
who would bo satisfactory to him ,
might take control of the inoro power
ful machinery of thu roamiry , Presi
dent Arlhur'H friends'hero insist that
ha'will lopk' obovo , andj boypml all
personal consideration's ill'ulioonlug
Ilia adviaora , mid do what lib butter
judgment dictates will bo for thn in
terests of hia administration , Just at
present nobody scoma to pretend to
i'uens , who the now members will bo in
c.wo n swooping change is made ; but
everybody appears satisfied to think
President Arthur will do aa Tyler ,
FiHmnro , ai.d Johnson did bcforo
him ; mnko changes one at n time , as
good opportunities offer.
THE SENATE ORGANIZATION-
A I'ltOSI'KCT 01' nWI.lCT.
WASII INOTON , October 5 , On Friday
there will bo a preliminary consulta
tion among the democrat : ! as to the
course to bo purtuied when the xcnato
meotfl on Monday. As matters now
stand , the dcmocralH intend to elect a
president pro tern , and a .successor to
Secretary Burch before the new
ly-elected topublican Konatorx ate
sworn in , If this is attempted
( hum will , of course , bo trouble.
There uro said to bo sover.il demo-
cnvls.however , who quietly protor to
nmku some agreement with republi
cans in advance , if that can bo accom
plished. L'omtloton and Garland
liavu been mentioned as holding thuso
views , hut , when approached , they sny
they h\vo : not authorized any stnto-
immts of their opinions ! , and that they
will await their party caucus and ex
pect to toide by it. The president of
the sunato will lie so close to the pros-
idencyof the United Stales only ono
life intervening that both republi-
cunn and democrats are unxioim to
possess that ollico for their respective
party , and feel that it is worth n
struggle.
The following Bonatorn are already
in the city : Johnston , Ing.ills , Harris ,
McMillan , Teller , Morgan , Garland
and Pngh.
It i.s curtain that Mr. Gorham , the
republican caucus nominee for secre
tary at the last aoviion , can not now
receive the muted vote of the repub
lican senators , and probably not half
of it. Riddloburgor , howuvor , would
be elected Heigi'.int-at-imns , if that
ollico fell to the republicans. There
iu no disposition to retreat from the
arrangement with Malione , who
will bo hero and certainly vote
with the republicans. 'It is concealed
by the republican senators hero that
they would concede all the minor
otliccs to the democrat ! ) in return for
the election of a republican presiding
ollicor In addition , they will agree
to the formation of the committees on
the basis of abaci ute equality of the
parties. It is positively assorted that
Davis will act with the republicans to
elect u presiding ollicor , should the
unsworn senators be admitted previous
to election.

THE INDIANS.
Hostilities Breaking Out Afresh
Trouble Anticipated.
PIIICACIO , October 5. A special
this morning from Tucson says : The
movement of the troops and the al
leged battles of yesterday and the
day before are anomalies in military
tactics. Our forces had the Indians
in the hills , on smooth plains and in
the rugged Graham mountains , but
up to this morning the result was six
teen citizens and soldiers killed and
seven missing , with , so far oil is known ,
not a single hostile brought down , al
though soldiers nro all around. The
Indians have steadily pursued their
march south without any detention
navtf wliui "StjpjfcijJt ? .b.'tvtho.wivysido , to
mlirdnr some pofcpTtrnvolor or H tat ion
keeper , and skifhiish with the sol
diers ; for the so-called battles amount
to nothing more than skirmishes. As
long as such brilliant efforts on the
part of the army continue
tho'idon ' of a general outbreak of the
Apaches is fearful to contemplate.
It is hoped that tlio change in com
manders will result in a change of
tactics , nnd if there is fighting done it
will bo well done. Col. Mackenzie
has the confidence of the people nnd
the reputation of being a good fighter.
Col. Mackenzie put Col. Biddlo under
arucst to-day and it looks as though
there were grounds for charges. Ad
vices from San Carlos state that there
is only one issue of Indian supplies
on hand and if morn do not arrive on
time trouble will follow. The Indians
are uneasy and restless. Nadoskn
claims that the white men have boon
stealing and robbing his cattle , and is
much dissatisfied. The agency In
dians are counted daily. Col. Carr
will follow with two hundred men and
will cross the Gild river five miles below -
low San Carlos to-night , so as to got
between the Indians * and the sub-
ngcncy , believing that George and
Bonito are still in that vicinity.
SAN FHANCISCO , October 6. Spe
cials from the Hcono of hostilities in
Arizona say there is danger that the
Chiricahuas , numbering ono hun
dred , will escape into Mexico. There
is nothing decisive in the engagement
at Dragoon mountains , as thu Indians
have a thorough knowledge of the
country formerly known as Coohiso's
stronghold. Indian Agent Tiffany
says that Col. Biddlo precipitated the
outbreak of thu Chiricahuas by forc
ing Chief George to leave the reserva
tion before the issue of rations ,
