Tho result of this contest, which has been sn -f".b , >irnly waged tor the past week, remained in doubt up to the very lust stages of tho ballot, hvery resourco " nown to political warfare was brought to benr by the leaders of tho opp mition to de feat the president's rononiinution, and fcr one brief hour in the iniddlo of the day it icrned that tho popular favorito of the Buckeye state was to receive the highest honor which can bn bestowed by the Republican party. But men hold stead- fust to their fuitb, and this great contest, tbo end, was determined by the instructed delegates from thoso ^tute-i that i had given formal expreBi-ion to their wishes ia the selection of a presidential candidate. It is doubtful whether any previous convention in tho history ot tho party has witnessed more enthusiasm than was called forthbythnnanieofHlui.no today. The consummate plans ot tho organizers of their movement for tho nomination of the x-stcretary of state were carried out in every particular, but the result demonstrated that a now era hud arrived in national conventions and that the preferences of delegates were no longer to be swayed by the manifestations of tho cheer 'ng thousands in the galleries. At no timo during tho day did (.he miine of president of the United States evoke tho enthusiasm that was repeatedly called forth by both the names of Bluino and MuKin ley. Indeed, tho most (Littering ovation of the entire proceedings was probably re ceived by fbo generous governor of the Buckeye srato when he insisted carrying out his declarations of the past and votoil for President Harrison, in defianco of the expressed wish of his colleagues from Oaio aud in opposition to his own interest is a presidential canoidato It was a re pitition of tho scenes of four years ago when McKinley rose ma jeatically in tho republican national convention at Chicago, and declaring the Buckeye state was pledged to the candidacy of John Sherman the greatest financier of tho nge—insist­ ed that those who bore n friendship for himself from voting for him in the convention. The parallel between the action to day nnd his actions of four years ago loses its_analog,' in tho difference that hip gener vsity of to day was accentuated by tho.fiict that Ohio was now in no way committed to the candidacy aa the mau for whom McKinloy paid his loyalty. DELEGATES GREATER THAN LEADERS The various mouibera of the National committee, who havo found such able co operation in Ex-Gov. Foraker, Ei-Sonutor Plntt and Senutor Quay, Wokntt. and Teller, maintained their powerful organization to tho very lust, but delegates wero greater than tho leaders in determining this contort and the votes pledged to President Harrison in the weeks gone by when Secretary Blaine was not a factor in the presidential race were at last delivered with fidelity in opposition to ull the enthusiasm which the name of Blaine called forth. A half dozen conferences wero held in tho oarly .hours by tho anti-administration leaders to determine what was beBt to be done. The proceedings of the convention show what the result of all these conferences v/as. It was determined to keep Blaine in the field until the spirit of tho convention had been ascertained and then endeaver by a skillful move to Mc Kinley to Etampedo the convention for the governor of Ohio and the chairman of the national convention. McKlnley was the very embodiment-of tho Amen oan ideal of statesmanship. Ho neither sought nor repelled, the presidency, but pursued the even tenor of his course, with infinite justice in hia rulings, regardless of tbn effect it might havo upon .aim or hia dostiny, PENNSYLVANIA TURNED THE TIDE, Pennsylvania was the first state to turn the tide against the compromise candidate, UBbored forth by tho almost solid support of the state of Ohio, and Matthew Quay to -day_ as in t.hu four years gone by, is a prominent figure in RspublicUn politics. But to -day it was a demonstration that the delegates of the Koyitone state were no longer plustio to his will, for it was the unexpected accession of tea ad-' ditional votes from this state to the Harrison column that turned the tide in favor of the president and cauBed so many Southern delegates aa well aa the slates of South Dakota and Texas, a few minutes Inter to follow the example by giving a significant majority to Benjamin Harrison, practioally assuring him the nom Woloott Fresente lllillim — llopUiw SpoonerHpeKks for Iltirrlnou. A sharp tup of tho gavel at 11:35 checked tlie sHint, and was followed a moment later by Chairman McKinley ordering the aisles cleared and some sort of order established. Tho prayer of Dr. Hoyt helped to produce silence nnd order. The reverem! gentleman prayed that the man to be selected as the standard-bearer might bo one chosen by tho Lord, and a man after his own hear'.. A little flutter of npplnuso greeted the report by Senator Quay that David Martin of Philadelphia had been selected as Penmylvanni i's member of the National coiumitte". Martin was Quay's candidate, auil his selection indicated tho continued sway of the senator in the Keystone state. A moment later Chairman McKinloy said: "Mr. Qj.iy, of Pennsylvania, reports on tho part of those opposed to the majority report, that they will iiinkn no furihcr opposition to its adoption." Prolonged cheers followed this announcement of tbo tucit acknowledgment of defeat by the opponents of tho majority report of the credentials committee, and the report was adopted by acclamation. A beparato vote was demanded by the Mormon contesting delegates of Utah on their case, but tho majority report was udopted aud the Mormons declared ineligible. MIcniOAN DELEOATES 11ETIHK. On request of Chairman Duflield, the Alger QiittMger, the Michigan delegation was allowed to retire for fifteen minutes for consultation, no nomination speeches folio made until after their return. At tin's juncture a magnificent bin piet was presented to Chairman McKinley from some unknown one and ho was freely applauded. A colored gentleman from South Carolina said that under tho rules of the Fifty-lirst congress, adoptod by this convention, ever; contestant had .1 right to a hearing, yet the committee on credentials had slammed the door-; in the faces of tbo contesting Alabama dele [ration and said that t.lioy should not be heard. Soinoone made the point of order, however, that tho obatrcperious Alabain- i in wus a member of no delegation upon tho lloor of this convention, and the colored gentleman was forced to subside. Then followed tho nominating speeches, Senator Wolcott nominating Blame rami ex-recretiiry of tho navy, 11. W. Thomi son nominating Harrison. When, during the mil of states Mivhignn wus reached, not a voico sounded for Alger or any other man. M. L Mutterson, a colored delegate from Mississippi, spoke for Blaine, as did also Bruno Fink, of Wisconsin, and Boyd (colored) of Toniusseo. _ Harris (colored) spoke for Harrison, whilo Warner Miller, of New York, while having no word to say Hguiust Harrison, warmly PU ogized Blaine. He hoped that the nominee ot the convonlion would receive the support of all republicans, which provoked heiirty apolauso. When Wisconain waa called ox-Senator Spooner came forward, and amid a .great demonstration, seconded tho nomination of Harrison. Tho ballot waa.thon ordered and tho roll of the states bogan with tho above showing land, (Cal,) Consolidated railroad company on a charge of embezzling $10,000. Beggs' whereabouts are unknown.
