SAKATOGIA , July 18. It is now bellovod the
difficulty with Tammany will bo settled by
allowing that organization thirty dolegatea in
the convention instead of twenty-four. The
county democratic caucus this morning passed
resolutions urging harmony.
The state democratic committee mot at 11
o'clock nntl adjourned to distribute tickets.
The committee moots at 1 o'clock. .At the
mooting of Tnmmany delegates at noon , John
Kelley presiding , Gen. Spinola announced
that by a conference between the chairman of
the county democracy , Tammany aud Irving
Halls , tha representation of Now York county
will bo as follows : County Democracy to ha
31 delegates : Tammany , 31 : Jrving Hall , 10.
1 r. M. About 12:30 delegates began to file
into the hall , There seemed during the morn
ing to bo considerable confusion as to the in
terior arrangements of the building and its ca
pacity to bold the pcoplo who rightly or wrong
ly succeeded in getting tickets of admission ,
thereby involving some danger of making con
fusion for tha deiogates.
Irving Hall nnd the county democracy held
caucuses nnd selected their delegates in accor
dant vv ith the agreement of their chairman
with Tammany. Irving Hall instructed their
delegates to vote for Cleveland ,
The caucuses of the county democracy and
the state democracy this morning adopted the
following resolutions :
WhereMjjTho Now York county democracy
in meeting with the democracy of the state , to
name candidates who shall receive the vote of
every democrat and of a majority of the
people for president and vico-prosfdont of the
United States , is prepared to make all noces-
eary efforts and concessions to assure
the democracy of the state and nation
that the regular organization in the
City Jrf , Newv York .has , .at heart
the true and .largoitainterests oljitho
everywhere ; * $ & & $ $ / & $ } * ' ' " >
forfranizatlou UDOI * 'uo 'atiiio committee bo
nnd tl'oy , * ro'iloroby appointed a committee
w.b , full power to use all reasonable efforts to
rjcuro harmonious presentation for the city of H
New York , at the Tammany caucus. :
General Spinola said Win. C. Whitney ,
chairman of the county democracy , would if
announce to the committee the apportionment )
agreed upon by the democracy of Now Yook
county and would offer a tdioit resolution
that that apportionment bo agreed upon. His
remarks weio applauded.
It became evident as the hour of the con
vention approached , that wbilo the building
will bo densely crowded , there will bo no con
fusion. The hall Is devoid of banners or em
blems of any kind. The platform will be
densely crowded. Before the convention
opened the scone- was that of a perspiring
crowd in doaporato effort * to cool a boated at
mosphere. The morning has boon spent by
various committees in tolerably successful of- ,
foita to purify the air. :
SAIIATOGA , Juno 18. Muring the roll call of
the convention the name of Samuel J. Tilden , 3. '

of applatife. Jno. Kelloy'n name was also .

vention , and Jio pi ovision for their comfort.
At 11:30 : the convention was called to order by IK
