CHICAGO. July 7. The Bconos of activity
about the 1'almor houao , which is at present
the great national political center , were re
newed early this moiuing. By S o'clock the
main corridoraJJ of the hotel and thorough1
ftaroa loading up to it ware filled with great
masses of people , which by their very num
bers made progress of the cable cars and car
riages \ery slow and at times well nigh im
possible. In the dining rooms and cafe ? in
the vicinity of the hotel was an army of men ,
Jiats in hand , waiting their turn for Beats at
the breakfast tables. In fact the crush has
now become so great as to inako comfort a
matter of faint possibility and the discomfort
has been greatly Increased by the fact that
the headquarters ot thu party
instead of beinp divided and.scattorod as was
the case with the ropu ican national conten
tion. Still the crowds to be accommodated
are much greater than at the first con mention ,
duo largely to the presence of the great march
ing organizations , some of which resembled a
full marching regiment by their number , and
while it seemed probable last night that all
had arrived on the scene of action , this morn
ing witnessed the arrival of additional posts ,
\ delegates , clubs , parties and individuals with
out limit , and as they moved directly upon thu
hotels these places became , as the day wore
on , inaccessible to every one except
STALWART rusimis.
The national executive committed hold a
session this forenoon aud arranged tor distri
bution of tickets and seating of delegates aud
alternates. The national committee will be
gin its sessions at noon to-day and the meetings -
ings of the various state delegations began at
1 o'clock. . Ohio is the only state whoso meet
ing is postponed as Into as 3 o'clock. The
reason assigned is that some delegates ha\o
not yet reported , but it is expected that a
warm contest may occur in the delegation and
it ? session Is postponed , it is claimed , partly
owing to that fact. The Now York delegation
wont into sessional 11 o'clock aud the Interest
which centres in its action appears to actuate
every one In attendance upon
the convention. The out and out
supporters of the Now York governor are
greatly encouraged at the action taken by
Kings county delegation , last night , in decid
ing to support him. They oven go HO far a.s to

At the Grand Pacific hotel McDonald talk
is the loudest. Karly to-day another Indiana
club , strong in numbers , came swinging into
the hotel , waving the McDonald banner and
cheering for their man. The Indianaiis are
tilving hard to impress others that ha is the
most available man and will heal all strife.
Among the delegations arriving at the Palmer
housu this morning were a number of Mary
land men and the remainder of
the delegates from Minnesota , West Virginia ,
Virginia , Louisiana , Tennessee and Mississ
ippi. The nuartors of the various states presented -

chairs , after a night of vigil. The principal
work of the national coinmittoo will bo to

CaiCAno , July 7 * The exciting oventof th
day was the struggle In the Nc-vv York delcga
lion and the heavy vote polled in favor of th
unit rulo. It was argued that It would fore
the Tammany opposition into n clogocornor
but notwithstanding what apueared to bo
famous victory of the Cleveland followers
very few of the leaders were willing tocoi
code the untrammeled success of Cleveland i
allotlng. owing to the fierce nature' of th
trugglo and the failure of n portion of n tick
gallon to como out openly for the majorit )
candidate. It had been acknowledged that f
the caucus had ended with a certainty tha
New York would cast her full vote for Clove
and , a mifticlent western nndsouthoriistrengll

osult of the day's work that the fight had al
ready been won and that it onlv requires
m sitting of the convention to seal the victory.
Tory few of the states winch pel footed their
organization to-day took a test vote as to their
presidential preferences. A portion of Penn
sylvania is known to be for Randall , Delaware
for Bayard , and Indiana and Kentucky for
McDonald. It is given out tint Connecticut

York , who presented objections to Cleveland' *
candidacy. A reply was made for Clovelaiul
of the World , who frnoko at length and with
great earnestness. The impiosslonon the del
egation was favorable to Cleveland ; while
there was no formal vote , it was understood
the vote of Georgia would bo caht for him.
Vermont Instructei their chairman Jto cast

Massachusetts is

the delegation would bo divided rather evenly
between McDonald , Thiiniian and Bayard.
It is contended that the xplit in Ohio delega

McLean will bo chosen for chairman unan
The adherents of Thurman are making this
move , but it is claimed at the eamo time that
Thuniiaii has 27 votes in the delegation.
New Hampshire 1ms instructed its delegates
for Cleveland. A threat which has boon
vaguely niadu heretofore of an attempt to

and it is now believed that a Tight will be
made in the convention , which will bu
led by Tammany and its conceded. If
it wins it will seriously complicate
the situation , and leave the Cleveland oppo
sition in Nevy York fieo to act. While thu
lower campaign appeared to hae ended as a.
result of thu caucus this afternoon , his sup-
Dorters contend they are not opposing Cleve
land , and that if the unit rule is defeated ,
those who went over to Slocum will return to
Flowers , mid make it a rallying point for his
supporters generally. A caucus held to-day
in John Koiley'ri room , with the tolo purpose
of organi/ing a campaign against the mat rule ,
contends that the national convention of 1863
ordained that the unit rule could be dispensed
with any time at the option of any subsequent
nationaf convention. As n result of the
caucus , it is declared Massachusetts. Iowa ,
Kansas , Delaware , aud other ntates have de
cided to support the proposition on the floor of
the convention. The Massachusetts delega

CHICAGO , July 7. The New York delega
, \on \ met at 11 o'clock , and continued in sea
sion four hours , ( treat interest centered in this
neotlng as having \ory important boat ing on
, he final action of the convention , and the
mil-way in ft out of the room in which the
H'ssion hold was filled with a throng of
loople anxious to eecuro early tidings of the
esult. It was understood that at n meeting
ate last night Tammany decided to insist
on a tvvo-thiids majority for the enforcement
if the unit rule , and thy question was whether
: hat number could bq mustered. There was
a long and excited discussion the tenor of
which hai not yet been learned. Humor * of
, ho results of thoi balloting crept out from
, imo to time , but could not be verified.
The following is given as the ballots to-day
or the presidential preferences :
1'iist or informal ballot : Cleveland , -ID ;
Blower , 23 ; Thurman , 1 ; Bayaid , 1 ; Tildon ,
Second or formal ballot of the changes :
Dloveland , 47 ; General Slocum , 15 ; Bayard ,
; 1'lowcr , 1.
It is undei-btood the Flower men compll-
nonted Slocum and Bayard with the view
hereby of winning the votes of King's county
n the convention. The vote on the ouforce-
nont of the unit rule stood , it is stated , 01
Another account has the following addition-
1 points : Having failed to break the Clove-
aud column the next move of his opponents
van to smash the unit rulo. It had nlioady
een decided by Kolloy's followers that this
liould bo attempted as alaitiosort , When
lie motion was made to cast the 7- votes of
S'ovv York ns n unit for Cleveland it was met
nd the real fight was on. John Kelly ,
enatorGrady , and others threw themselves
ito the breach. They attacked Cleveland's
vailabilitv' , and intimated thAt a bolt might
ccur if Cleveland's nomination was forced
pen them , but finally cooled otf and haid
; ioy did not moan it. Then they declared
lie unit rule was an injustice * , and that they
rould not ba bound by it. Grady declared
lint the state had no right to iiistiutt the
elegatc ) from districts. The Cleveland .nen
igisted that the stnto convention appointed
be delegate ? , rial had authoiity to instruct
licin upon any and all questions. It vyas
rgod that every delegate who was attempting
o break the rule had voted for it in state
onvontion and promised to abide by it.
For over two hours the exciting discussion
as continued and then the Tammany dulo-
ates asked for an adjournment , that they
light have a chance to consult. This was
ranted , and n recess was taken. A few mill-
tos afterwaid Senator Grady and General
pinoln , nfter _ a hurried talk with John Kelly ,
dged their way through the crowd , and wore
shored into Chairman Manning's private
loin , where a long consultation with a viovv
0 a compromise of differences failed to result
1 an agreement. When the delegation as-
embled theru was
ongand excited discussion. In thu meantime
wo more names had been gained for Clove-
and , and ho now had 1 ! ) at his back. It was
naliy agreed that the state shculd vote as n
nit , but the anti-Cleveland men Insisted that
n explanation of the vote should be given to
10convention. This was conceded , and note
oto was thru taken upon the final motion
mt the cliuir shall announce -IDdelegates
: NewYoik are for Cleveland and -'A for
ayard , Flower and Slocum , but that under
10 instructions of the state convention , the
J votes are cast for Cleveland. This motion
as adopted , Cl toll , the Tammany nnd two
, hera voting against it.

"At what do you ustimatu thu independent

"I should say it could not bo less than

"Con you elect him
"If ho is nominated you will sco Kelly ] on

"Yes , but will not Kelly knife him at lust ,
s ho did Hancock , who was his own choice ? "
This question made PitliUor remove his
Igar , spit violently , make a very wry face
nd reply sadly :
"O. I dent think Kelly would do that. "
"What is the matter with Bayard ? "
"Bayard is a great man ; but ho is n tariff
efoimer and Blulno is thu exponent of pro -
ection. It takes very little wisdom to nee
liat if they run against each other the cam-
la'ttn ' would become simply a controverny
ver the taiiff , and that in such a controversy
lie manufacturing Ktates of Now York , Now
eisoy and Connecticut would mdo with the
u-otccttonist. The truth Is , the demociat
louse gave the piexidency to the lojmblicans ,
nd the republican convention gave it back to

whether tha democratic convention will give
t hack to the republicans , by nominating a
