It is understood thii forenoon that Randall
will withdraw and permit the rote of Penn
sylvania to bo cast for Cleveland. This gives
great hope to the friends of that candidate
that he will bo nominated on the eocond bal
lot. On the other hand the opposition under
the lead of Butler and Kelley will make an
effort to prevent an increase of Cleveland's
strength on the second ballot , in the belle :
that it will then Ira possible to turn the tide

reaentatlvo of the old ticket present Mr.
Hondricka. Hon. Patrick Walsh , a delegate
nt largo from Georgia , expressed the opinion
to the Associated 1'ress that Cleveland will
be nomluntsil on the first ballot this morning
- the second ballot of the call ,
The convention was oallod < o order at 11
o'clock and prayer woa offered by HOT. Dr.
Clinton Locke , of Grace church , Chicago. He
prayed that the consultations of the body bo
tor the furtherance of just and equal la\vs , for
the preservation of liberty , for the uunishment
of wrong doers and for the praise i f those
who do well ; that every dele/ata should bo
kept from being guided by hia own solfidh
gain , by his own pddo or by his own likings
ordiahkings. Ho prayed that in the great
and noble contest which wn.i opening before
the American people there would bo a cona
tion from strife and nngor ; that men's eyes
fthould not bo blinded to that which ia fair
and just ; that nil corruption , bribery and ille
gal voting bo kept far away , and that after
the election the whole people may join in
their support of the president
The chairman said he had received , among
other lottora and telegrams from all parts of
the country , ono from Air. Godwins , of Alas-
rachuaetlH , with th-j presentation of a gavel
Hindu up from woods and relics from different
parts nf > ho world.
