[ Spoclal Telegram to Tin : HKI : . ] Tlio event
fill day has come. Yesterday the hose ol
political oratory was turned on the conven
tion. It washed the path clear for the
balloting to-day. Sherman's friends arc
generally believed to have made a bad mis
take In not fore-Ing at least one vote lust
I 1 night , bnt they were suspicious of the
Fornkcr stiletto which wnsnot really drawn.
It will bo hard to create another such scone
ns that of yesterday , which 'Was
largely the result of tlio prcsenta
tion of Sherman's name. This
niorn'ng ' the situation is critical. Tlio
Hlainoor-bustcrs have dropped the imsk
and are working hard fpr their favorite
California Insists that It will vote for Hlalno
on the first ballot. Scores of delegates
openly announce that

ns soo'i as they can decently do
eo , The combination yesterday was
ngaliist Sherman ; to-day It seems to bo
against Hlaliie. The managers of every other
boom passed a sleepless night. Murut Hal-
stead still profcsbos conlldonco in Sher
man's staying powers , but these who know
the Ohio delegation bettor insist
that it is not prepared to die with its chief
tain. Grcsham is a name of the past , if
every sign does not fall. The slips of Alger's
managers appeared to huvo laid his boom on
Ice. Allison's friends profess a oanlUlonro
which they do not fcol. Their candidate lost
by Hepburn's presentation , and still more by
the announcement of the Hlalnoitos that
IJlaluo will accept if nominated. Kvoryeno

It U 11 o'clock and the convention hall
Is nearly full. The topmost gallery for the

tlio delegates are absent from their seats.
Harrison's sjpportcrs are Jubilantly pro
claiming the ewtaln election of their candi
date , but California smiles as she whispers
the names of lilutiio. The rumor passes around
the rejiortcrs1 benches that one of two tickets
Las been decided ujxm in the general confer

Allison and Pholps. "Geography favors the
former ; public policy , " say the lowans , "tho

it would thus secures in that commonwealth
the triumph of tlio ticket. Under these con

In favor of that policy beciuis
here in the United States wo have on a

that policy that will put a roof over the heai

I am not only in fiver of the republic i
party because it is in favor of protecting in

cause it believes in protecting the rights o
American citizens everywhere. I am fo
that party because it took the last stain fron

cause It pave freedom not onlv t
4KK,0X ( ) ( ) of people but to thousand

Now , having said this little , 1 regard thosui
cess of the republican party .is the most mi
portant tiling for the republ'o. In the nex
place no single man , whatever his service ,
may be > , nor whatever his achievements havi
been , no single man , wliutevor his capacit' '
is , is of the slightest importance comparei
with the success of the republican party
consequently the nes-t question is , who ia tii
most available man other things being equal
( Cries lor Grcsham , IMamo and others ) ,
elo not e-aio who you me for , or who I an
for , the gieat question is , and that qucstioi
must be settled at the polls , not in a whirl
wind of excitement , but after months of ells
cussion when the hurrah is out of your lung' '
and sense in your brain , that question inns
bo settled by the most intelligent men unele :
thei Hag , and when you can do a thing easily
the-ro IN no need of straining yourselves
\\ould like to hco this convention rise to the
dignity and splendor of the oiraMon , and :
believe you will. I would like to see yoi
put upon the next tie-kot two soldiers whc
helped to save our country 1 would like tc
see two heroes lulled against two democrats.
I want two patriots against two coppeiheads
Then let the American people make
theli choice. Lot them say who they wil
have , and my ide.i is this , that a man win
did not want to go to Hichmond during the
war , should not bo sent to Washington now.
The gieat thing 1 want is success. No !
simply for a p.uty , nut for my country , and
not simply for iny country , hut for principle ,
because 1 believe human libc-ny is more im-
poitant than any country on the globe.
Now , being a republican , boinif for the re
publican party , being for protection , wishing
ind hoping for sucejs , I am m favor ol the
