CITY, Fab. 23. — Tha Domo- cra'.ic ualiunil ro<mmttoe held a aix-hour'a lession at Willard's hotel Wednesday, and wrestled with the problems wlmn and where to bold the national convention. Thn first 1-UiineKS was the selection of a member to fill tho vacancy caused by the death of H. O. Thompson, of New York. This was soon done, William Steinway, of New York city, being chosen. Ho Immediately took hissoat. The question of federal officials taking part in tho committee's deliberations was another in which much Interest had Itomi felt and mu!}h speculation indulged in. When tbo coffemittei* was full It was found that J. 11. Weston was Michigan's representative In place of Postmaster General Dickinson; W. C. Guu ly 81 ood for Illinois In place of Postmaster Judd, of Chicago, and Hirnm Atkins was present in place of Collector Smalley, of Vermont W. L. Bcott represented Pennsylvania. The committee being organixed the next matter tnkon up was the date of tbe convention, and it caused a long discussion, resulting finally in the fix- Ing of July 3. The date was fixed on one ballot, two other dates having bean ' proposed—Miy 'J3 and June 6. Then reces* of half an hour was liken, that tbe committee and olheis might pull themselves together for the tug of wnr—the light for location. Upon th • point Chicago was the firs', hoard, M. W. Fuller making a, brief speech In behalf of tho Lake city. Gen. Hunt then ppoko for Cincinnati, nnd was followed by Congressman Cox for New York city. "" Cox began by re-furring <o the memorial of prominent citizens .of Nuw York, setting forth the advantages for Now York city. The secretary having read Ilia memorial, Mr. Cox said: "All roads load to New York as tlio commercial, political, and, I was about to say, imperial emporium. For, indeed, NoW York is imperial In many ways, an I especially In OIIP uens», which Mitford usos, ia his. history when ho speaks of the imperial democracy of Athons. ."During tho ardors of the coming summer, both physical and political, I may not say that Bho surpasses her sister on tho golde i gate nnd her inland sisters upon the lake an I river lu giving suburban comfort and an breezes, but at least she Is the peer of any other city—not excoptlng Constantinople— for that wonderful combination of water, sky, air, and, mountain, which have boon so eloquently described by other gentleman." lie then referred to tl e p'alrl >tio associations which suggested Niw York, particular- ty reminding tha coirimltteu that tho day was the anniversary of the birth of the first 'president, who was inaugurated in Naw York. Ha disclaimed any purpose of New York to forra any man's nomination by tli < presence of the convention in that city, but' called attenlion lu thn importance, of the vote of the stale. Ho closed by referring to tha W'Jcoi]io..Now. York had givoil those wh'j like himself wuru tmdtir ban in thn northern states during the war, and admitted some bias as an advocate in gratitude for thatwnl- come, and said he regarded the choice of the metropolis as almost iiuiixpoiiKuble to vie tory. Mayor Francis, of Bt Louis, followed Cox In a brief siKioch, urging the committee to send the convention to that city, He alluded to tbe national Democratic gathering thero in 1870, which nominated Mr. Tildon—tha man who broke the Republican fanlra. He gpoke enthusiastically of tbe ample hall and hotel accommodations of St. Louis—am pi) for any emergency—and said that St. Louis, if the convention came there", would defray the entire expjiuus of thejnationaljcommittoo, and guarantee railroad rates that would not exceed one-half uf regular roun 1-trip rates. He concluded by calling on Senator Vest to explain the political reasons why the convention should bo held at Bt. Louis. • The Missouri senator, In a brief and brilliant oratorical outburst, roused bis hearers to the highest pitch of enthusiasm and applause. A remark made at tha outset, be differed from some of his Democratic brethren—who be foared were receding from good old Democratic principles—In believing that all offices should be fillnd by competent and worthy Do'ttocrnln, brought forth tho loudestsortofindor.suiuentfnj.il his. hearers In applause an 1 shouts of approval. An army that dojjn't. few ud its no:diei s, he exclaimed, will come to grief; and the party that'Doesn't reward its voters will meat with misfortune. Doin-jcratic conven'.lons bail frequently heretofore been held In Republican states ani cities with no good result*. and ho doubted whether tbe proranco of a convention at Cnlcago or Cincinnati brought Democratic votes to their standard bearer, if hold in St. Louis no charge could ba mado that it was held in eithe. a northern or n.mih orn state, for In tha late war Missouri fought on both (ides. Horatio C. King, of Nevada, (poke for San Fraiichco. H) did uot ajjrao with San ator Vust that lha presence of a convention did not affect votes in tha locality -whore held, and said tha committee owed it to the Democrats of California to conu there and help carry tha three, doubtful .Republican states of the slope—California, Novtttla auJ Oregon—for the Democracy. Mr. T.irpey, who represents California on the national committee, then spoke of the In- ciiicoinunts held out by Sail Francisco and tho people of tbo Pacific coast They would* pay all the expanses of the . national committee, and he used the world "all" iu its moat amplified sensa. They guurmitoed round-trip tickets from points on the Missouri river to and from San FiancUco for (40, good for sixty days; balls and coluinittee rooms free of expense, and, instead of increase,!, reduced hotel charges. The Democrats of California claimed to be Spartans iu tho ciausa of Democracy, aud while the.v wished to harbor tha convention handsomely if they chose to come there, yet they would not uryo It to come to tbe Pacific coast if they did not feel that lu corning thure would benefit the party. If it came there in responso to lha request of Oiiiforula. Ntv- Vttda and Oregon tbe result would; ^»J a glftr Tious Democratic victory for tba Dmnocrutio noruinovs In thoso three statofl, wi.ert. fourteen electoral volus were Irambling in the ba&uce.

B3.—The Union League club of this city celebrated Washing- on's birtli<Iay t>y listening to an oration jy Hon. Cli-iiiiimy M. D/paw. of New York, tellverod at Ct-ntrnl Music hull, in the afternoon, and at night govo a buiiquot in honur tJNION UEAOU*. of the day and their disilunu shod jiuest. Tbo Music hall stage was tastefully decorated when Mr. De|»w stepped upon It, and the auditorium was full of thn niumbers of tho club with their ladiiM..' Tha platform wa.s occupied by anumlwrof dMlingiiUhedguests, among Iliem Hon. Bon Uutterwprth, of Ohio, aud Andrew Curaegie, t>eflldos prominent of this city. Mr. Depew was introduced by Chairman Htrnd, of the club, with a few appropriate remarks, and the calibrated Nuw Yorker then proceeded, Mr. Depew's address .win upon The Political Mission of the United States." Tba key- oote of the oration was his reference to the fact that tha first tariff act which this country ever bad. was signed by George Washington, whoso birth the country was celebrating. D.-pew argued that to the tariff sys em established by the wisdom and genius of Washington and Hamilton was due tho unex impled development of national wealth. The present c'.liof execu'.iv.), he s^id, now proposed a directly opposite policy. It was forluimto that the IsatM was squarely made, anil tbe vital question would have to be Fquaroly mot. All previous deviations toward a free trada policy, he declared, had resulted In disasters to business, and the losses which would follow-a complete reversal of our national policy now would be proportionately more calamitous Ud asserted that President Cleveland's anxiety for renomiimtloh bud led to an abandonment of the civil service reform principles upon whloh tbe administration had at first insisted. This was an example of the dangers of permitting tecond presidential i terms. The Increasing power of the presidential office made it ad vieabl* that • one term limit bo made const! lutionul In order to, remove temptations to abuse of such power iu securing prolonged terms of office. The political misiloi) of the United State! bos thus far been wrought out by Individ unl and territorial conditions. Four men of Ineqim! geuiui have dominated our oantury, arid the growth of the west jias revolution uwd the republic. The four men were Hamilton, Jefferson, . Webster, aud Lincoln. Hamilton at the oge • of 17 had'formulated the principle* of government by the peoplo so tlearly that no succeeding publicist baa Jm proved them. Jeffersoo.' feareil the loss Ql popular rights in centralization. He destroyed the party of Washington and Hamilton, and built up one that was dominant for hall a century. This parly bold that wo were not a nation but a league of independent states. Thin wus a period ot dsngar which ut times checked prosperity, paralyzed progress and prevented expansion. Webster broko the spell. At a critical period Webster do live red a *p« c.i unequalled for Immedlato and lasting results. Ii- created an u qu^ncba ble patriot lam, and from that day wo were not a ronfudaratlou, but a nation, with the eontimant "Liberty and-mnion, Now am! Forever. Ono and Insoparuble." The growtl of tbe west also delUd tha siuvo power. Lin coin became tba great oruc'e of these sent! raonts.

Yet a» tbe canvass of 18SS opens the tremendous advantage of an auxiliary force of 200,000 faithful workers has relegated Roman virtua to the rear, and brought the spoils system to the front. With the growth of tbe republic tho powers of the president will iucreo.se. There should be limitation to one term, and those who have held the position should receive an adequate pension for life. This would elevate tho office. Dopew next discussed the danger of paternalism in government Individual freedom was a safeguard of liberty. ~ The public icbool system must be fort!fled an B cure for the danger of Ignorance, native and Imported. Ignorance Is tha breeding ground of Anarchy. Wemustnot admit criminalsand paupers. Persistent disturbers who refuse citizenship should be expelled on tbe first conviction of a jury. To secure fair and honest elections the Austral! in system. Including printing and distribution of ballots at public expanse, should be adopted. The security of government belli { ensured by wise measures tbe great economic Issues can be worked out Our country has 20 per cent more - arable land • than China, which supports a population of nearly 400,0(10,000. We shall In tha comparatively near future have U07.000.003 people In this country. Our problem is not bow shall they be controlled, for they are the controlling majority, but how are they to be satisRud? A policy which will keep wages above tha line of mare subsistence miist be maintained. At tho zenith of our prosperity when confidence and credit are projecting > enterprises fraught with u-itold wealth, 'resident Cleveland bos boldly challenged ho policy on which all our Investments are (150,1. It Is fortunate for our future that be issuo is moda plain nnd that the deciiion ust bo imperative. If the result Is, as I hink It will be, the dnfaat of tbe president nd big party, ho will taka his place among he few specialists and exfierimrmtalisbs who who have died In demonstrating that the gun was not loaded. Depew proceeded .to Illustrate our vast growth since ITS'. 1 , whon Washington slgnel be first tariff act He declared Washington a have been a better economist, as shown by resultx, than Cleveland, for the occasional victories of free trade in our history had <evn followed, like thoso of 1810, 18.13 anil 340, by national commercial disasters. -Ho declared the tariff_to_ bo also tha least burdensome method of raising taxes. He favored gulttidlas as lha moitns of restoring our ocean trade,and closed withaglowiug picture of our proud position when protection and encouragement shall h>ive become the unos- nilablo policy of our nation. , At the bunq let, which was held in the plendid banquet hall of tha club housn, and ttended by about 350 prominent citizonts nd their Invlto,! guosts after full justice tad been done to the good things of the din- ter, Justice Harlan began the post-prandial oratory with a response to the toiist to the Jnited States suprem3 ' court. Tho address was eloquent and scholarly. Tbe next speaker was Hun. B.'n Butterwortb, who ad- vocatod reciprocity with Canada, and he was followed by Andrew Carnegie, who rather throw cold wnter on Bntterworth's scheme. Severn] oilier sj>eeches were madu t aaii it was ate whon tbe banqueters sought their tiomes. Ul*'cavuitvj WUh ptrtact frk&JtnoM camo up lor .iHcimi-jn and was tenderly handled. Th-j.. gonoral sontimenl was expressed by Pie»ido:it Foster, of tha National Republic*!! langua, whan ho said that tho solution lay • in local option. Prohibition Wai hot a national quastion, anyway, and the attempt to make it so is ill- advised. A state league was formed with John Atkinson, of Detroit, as president, and avlCT president from each county. The discussion of presidential candidates was not permitted, but ainoti£ tho delegates there were free expressions of s>ntlmont in favor of Gen. Al^er for president, and if the expressions to be beard among tbe delegates indicate anything the Michigan delegation to tho Chicago convention will go instructed to nominate and stand by him to tho end.

Mnny new cases have been taken to the supremo court house for treatment, and it is in fact a hospital, for there are now about twenty-two persons there, and the number is being con>u'dorably Increased. Of this number Josit* B'innett, Augusta HolT- man, Frank Hognn, Mrs. Fields, Ella JOIIOH (colored), Walter Jones (colored) and an infant will probably die. The janitor of the school building, G. W. Persons (colored), was taken from the ruins Wednesday and found to be horribly mangled. It was known all the timo.tbat he was in the debris. The public so far has been very kind, but It will require a vast amount of help to tldo over the sad visitation. We have had a succession of failures for many years, and are. not prepared for such a misfortune as we have lately suffered. Asking I*eKl«lutlva Assistance. .
