THE CHICAGO COXVEXTIOS.
To-day "will bo begun at Chicago a
contest -which many think will leud
to Blaine, and victor' for the Kopub
lican party in November. As Oregon
had her say regarding state matters
vesterdav. we can now look over to
the city by the lake. "While our read
ers are waiting for the news, it may
interest them to read what the last
convention which met at Chicago on
June 2, 1SS0, did. It was called to
order by Don Cameron. George F.
Hoar of Massachusetts, temporary
chairman, and subsequently, on the
5th, was made permanent chairman.
The first ballot was not reached until
Tuesday, 8th. Total vote 755; neces
sary to a choice 379. First ballot,
Grant received 304, Blaine 284, Sher
man 93, Edmunds, 34, "Windom 10,
and Washburne 20. During the
twenty-eight ballots of the day, Grant
.steaauy progressed to uua votes on
the fifteenth ballot, dropping back
and closing at 308 on the twenty
eighth. Blaine reached 283 on the
fourteenth and closed with 278 on
the iweuty-eightb. Sherman had
two less on the twenty-eighth than
on the first Edmunds three less,
and "Windom kept his ten the whole
-twenty-eight ballots. "Washburne had
five more on the twenty-eighth than
on the first Garfield had one on the
second ballot, fluctuated between one
and two, and wound up with the lat
ter number on the twenty-eighth.
On the third, fourth and fifth, .Har
rison of Indiana had one vote.
Hayes received one on the tenth. On
the first ballot Blaine had one from
Alabama, 12 from California, Connec
ticut 3, Delaware 6, Illinois 10, In
diana 2R, Iowa 22, Kansas 6, Ken
tucky 1, Louisiana 2, Maine 14, Ma
ryland 7, Michigan 21, Mississippi 4,
Nebraska 6, New Hampshire 10, New
Jersey 16, New Xprk 17, Ohio 9, Ore
gon 6, Pennsylvania 23, Bhode Island
8, Tennessee 6, Texas 2, Virginia 3,
West Virginia 8,"ViBConsin 7, Arizona
2, Dakota 1, Idaho 2, Montana 2, New
Mexico 2, Utah 1, Washington 2,
Wyoming 1, District of Columbia 1.
Adjourned until next day. Twenty
ninth ballot was practically the same
as the twenty-eighth; thirtieth same:
On the thirty-first ballot Blaine lost
2, on thirty-second 6; on thirty-third
gained 6; lost 1 on thirty-fourth; on
the thirty-fifth Grant went to 312,
Blaine fell back to 257, and Garfield
went to 50; on the thirty-sixth ballot
the 31aine men went to Garfield all
but 42, the result being Garfield 399,
Grant 306, Blaine, 42, Sherman 3,
Washburne 5. The highest vote
Grant received on any ballot was on
the thirty-fourth, which was 312.
The highest vote Blaine received was
on the fourteenth, 285. The highest
for Sherman was on the thirteenth,
120. Highest for Edmunds on the
twelfth and thirteenth, 33. Chester
A. Arthur of New York was nominat
ed for vice president J on first ballot
by 4C8 votes, 123 Washburne, 44
Jewell, 30 Maynard, the rest scat
tering. Wexdelii Philmps excused, if he
did not justify, the Russian nihi
lists because they are too closely
watched to permit a regularly organ
ized revolution. When war for hu
man rights cannot be made wholesnle
the question arises, how far men are
justified in making it on single per
sons. Here comes in the question of
courage and cowardice. All nihilists
freely devote their lives and all their
property to the work of national re
generation as truly as our fathers
"pledged their lives, fortunes and sa
cred honor" to maintain American
independence. Our fathers could
and did organize a revolutionary war.
It seems impossible for patriotic Rus
sians to do this. Does their courage
and contempt of death redeem them
from the charge of murder in slaying
their foe3? Daniel O'Connell said:
"No revolution is worth one drop of
human blood." He had learned wis
dom from experience. Every Irish
revolution had failed, but he had
, faith to believe that Englishmen
could be persuaded to d6 justice to
Irishmen, therefore he devoted his
life to agitation. He tried hard to
convince his countrymen that a dis
cussion with arguments was better
than one with sticks. If he should
appear to-day in Ireland and England
what would Lo say to the dynam
iters? Montana rejoices in the posse3sion
of tho biggest county in the United
States, "whioh, of course means the
world. It is only 36,000 square miles
in extent, and is larger than the states
of New Hampshire, Yermont Massa
chusetts, Connecticut, Delaware and
Bhode Island combined. How many
states shall re havo in the Union a
century hence, when our population
will in all probability be two hundred
millions? They may number around
hundred. What a paradise the coun
try will be for the politicians. Think
of it. One hundred governors, one
hundred legislatures, and millions of
other nice, easy places all the way
down the political ladder.' It muBt
be a sad thought for our politicians
that these good times are so far
The Anti-Monopolists will hold a
maes .meeting and ratify the nomina

What is more soul-stirring than to
see a man, who, beaten upon every
side, crowded into a corner, is fight
ing heroically to recover lost ground?
Him who when his legs fail him,
fights upon his knees. Him who ex
emplifies the old Norse maxim:
"Either I will find a way or make
one." It has been well said that
"success consists not in nevertfailing,
but in rising evory time we fall."
Push on. Friends may desert, the
clouds of doubt and discouragement,
of sorow and despair, may hover
round about, but there is no
night ' without itr morn, no
lane without a turn. The
world wants mtn, it is bound to
recognize birq who knows not how to
yield. Gain strength from the words
of that Spartan mother, uttered when
her Bon complained that his sword
was'too short, "Add a step to it," the
brave woman. replied. Never envy
those who have not, figuratively
speaking, been obHged to take in their
sails to weather a squalL If you have
been crippled, hasten to repair the

Don't be troubled if some people think

A-WE3TEBS statesmen who has been
giving his views on tho presidential
question s&ys: '""What we want is a
broad gauge man, who oan command
the respeot of the whole country."
Mr. Blaine, he thinks, is just the man.
But the trouble is that in the opinion
of a great many people he is "too
broad." Is there no way of cutting
him down a little so that the more
timid of his countrymen would not
be scared out of their wits in the event
of his nomination? Mr. Blaine iB a
wonderful man in many ways. "Who
ever before suoceeded in managing a
presidential canvass and writing a
splendid history at one and the same
time? Probably he can change tho
gauge so as to suit all parties.
Manitoba has been given the cold
est kind of a cold shoulder by the
Dominion government. The railroads
sho clambored for will not be built,
and no relief whatever granted to
her. The proper thing for Manitoba
to do is to come into the Union.
Large numbers of her inhabitants
are leaving for Montana. and Dakota.
This is u wise step, but it would be
better for them to run up the Stars
and Stripes over their farms and de
clare for annexation. By this means
she can get all the railroads she needs.
There is a splendid surplus in tho
treasury at "Washington, to a portion

A good many newspaper men seize
the present opportunity to throw

for an old man to be swindled by a
rascally partner, then Gen. Grant

a single dishonest aot on the part of
th broken old man who never went
back on a friend, and whose trustful
