A N o b le E ist o f F r o s id o n tia l Can«li<lato« P r e s e n t e d ; Cnit'A(U), June 21.—The conviTitiou was called to order at 3.0.5. Mr. Terrel of Texas and Mr. Galllnger of Now Hamp­ shire seconded General Harrison’.s imnn- nation. The first really striking scene in the convention so far was precipitateil by the mention of the name of Blaine by Mr. Galllnger at the close of hi.s speech. The galleries and many of the delegates spr,ang to their feet ami shouted for nearly a minute. Flags were waved and the demonstration finally became really imposing. The secretary proceeded calling the roll of states and Iowa having been reached, Mr. Hepburn of that state amid loud applause ascended the platform and placed in nominalioii Senator Wm. B. Allison. Mr. Bosworth of Rhode Island seconded Allison’s nomination. When Michigan was reached Chairman Horr of that delegation rose ana said that Michigan had a candidate who woidd be presented by R. F. Frazer of Detroit. When Mr. Frazer mounted the platform there was a cry from the galleries: “ What’s the matter with Alger?” and the popular response, “ He’s all right,” in an evidently concerted chorus. As Mr. Fiazer stepped from the platform after finishing his speech, again the Alger cry went up and it was some moments before the uproar could be quelled. Charles J. Noyes of Massachusetts fol­ lowed Mr. Frazer on a second of the nomination of Gen. Alger. Patrick Egan of Nebraska, Mr. ^Estes of North Caro- lina, and Mr. Bggers of Arizona also seconded the Alger nomination. The roll ol' states was coutiimed. On New York being called the delegation from that state arose and with tremendous cheered greeted Mr. Hiscock, who pro­ ceeded to place Chauncey M. Depuw in nomination. Senator Hiscock was frequently ap­ plauded, the New York dulegatioa giving the cue to tiie convention. As he closed every man from New York rose and gave three cheers for her favorite sou and the cheers were echoed Iiack from tlie gal­ leries. Mr. Hartley of Minnesota W as recog­ nized and mounting the platform he said Minnesota seconds the name of Ohauncey M. Depew. When the State of Ohio was called the first really great demonstration of the convention was made. Delegates all over the hall climbed upon their chairs, waved American flags and shouted at the top of their voices. When this demonstration finally came o an end the Ohio delegation gave way to Pennsylvania and Adjutant General Hastings was presented to the convention to offer the name of Senator Sherman. At the conclusion o f Mr, Hastings’s ad­ dress Gov. Poraker of Ohio was presented by the Ohio delegation to second Senator Sherman’s nomination. As the Governor advanced up one of the aisles to tlie plat­ form two of the sergeants at-arm came up another bearing an enormous floral emblem surmounted by a floral shield. Upon the face of this emblem in letters formed by red roses on a field of white roses were Poraker’s now famous words : ‘■No battle flags surrendered while I am Governor.” The scene as Mr. Poraker took his seat has been equalled in the history of Na­ tional conventions probably only by the burst following the nomination of Cleve­ land by Daniel Dongberty at St, Louis, In one respect it certainly surpassed that, for it came totally unexpected. Forak- er’s conclusion was somewhat abrupt and the cheers that followed were from his jtant apparently as it never realized what a great hold Sherman had in the convention and upon the Republican party and the country. So tremendous a shout went up that the banners in the dome trembled and it seemed as though the galleries would fall under the wild mass of yelling spectators. -------- ------ ,)ed continuance of the de- TWO TRUSTEES VOTE NO TO T H E P E T I T I O N O F T H E F . .1., M . & N .

C m o A flo, June 22, 10 a. m.—The 2'n /»n/c says this morning that there is a scheme on foot among Blaine’s friends to nominate him, after first giving Harrison u chance as a feint to beat Sherman, It also say.s that the New York delegation may turn to Gresham if it is not taken up by the other states. The M /rs says that Michigan, Ohio and Indiana have formed a combination to provoke a stampede to Blaine. Tlie fnier Ocean says that New York is rec( (ling from Sherman, and the Gresham and Harrison stock is advancing. The Times says the contest is narrowing down to Blaine and Sherman with the chances favoring Blaine, with Foraker for Vice President. T i n ; ENGLISH SPARROW .

Tlie ladies were not greeted with as large an audience as the fair deserved. Many pretty articles were sold and the affair cau be noted a success. The entertainment opened with a well played piano solo by Miss Edith Marsh. Then Miss Alice Patterson sang in a pleas­ ing manner that beautiful song entitled, “ That Melody Divine. ” Following this Miss Clara Laidley sang the popular song, “ Eutchy, Kutchy, Coo,” charmingly,and rounds of applause greeted her effort. It was the feature of the evening, and by request will be repeated to-night. The Shakespearian selection, which was the quarrel scene of Brutus and Cassius, was given by Messrs. Bennet and Fullerton. The singing of Fred Schweiker was very acceptable, while Miss Bertha Greenleaf sang “ Under the Lindens,” in her usual pleasing manner. In place of the instru­ mental duet, Mrs. Church being unable to play, a solo was played by Miss Marsh which was well received. The singing of Miss Came VanWormer was very grati­ fying and her audience regretted that there was not more of it. The entertainment closed by a song entitled, “ Loving heart trust on,” which was sung by Miss Ellla Olmstead in a lery agreeable way. The le program being completed, ice­ cream and strawberries were served. The program for to-night will be equally as good, and a larger attendance should be present. The “ Spanish dance’’ will be rendered by 14 beautifully attired young ladies and the farce “ Sarah’s Young Man” will be rendered. PBRSONAIU —Miss Angie Sherman of Springville, N.

Among the cases of local interest that were disposed of at the term of Supreme Court, in Goshen this week, were the following: The case of Edward G. Tibbetts vs. the village of Port Jervis was tried on Tues­ day, and the proof was submitted on the part of the plaintiff and defendant, after which the complaint was dismissed by the court. This was an action which was brought for defective sewerage by the vil­ lage. An appeal will probably be taken in the matter or suit brought>gainflt Mr. M. C. Everitt. The case was tried by C. E. Cuddeback for the village, and Wilton Bennet for Mr- Tibbetts. The case of Martha J. Westfall against Peter G. Cuddeback was tried Wednes­ day. The plaintiff demanded $3,000 for nursing the defendant who was an invalid. The plaintiff had received from the defendant $12 a month for the entire time defendant had boarded with her, from 1879 to January, 1888, excepting for the last month and a half of his stay with her. Her claim was that defendant had promised to compensate her fully for the care and attention she gave defendant, for while the $12 a month was inade­ quate compensation, by leaving to her all his property by will and that he accordingly made such a will. Subse­ quently, becoming dissatisfied, he tore up his will and moved to another boarding place. The suit was brought for the dif­ ferences between the actual value of ser­ vices and the amount paid by defendant. The defendant denied that he had agreed to make a will in plaintiff’s favor as a matter of compensation for services; he had made a will m her favor, but de­ stroyed it when their personal relations became unsatisfactory. He further claimed that he had paid plaintiff in full, excepting the sum of $18, which he ad­ mitted to be due. The jury were out over three hours and brought in a verdict for plaintiff of $18. This verdict does not carry costs to plaintiff, she will have to pay defendant’s costs. The plaintiff is a resident of Wurtsboro, of Sullivan county, and the defendant resides at Huguenot. Bacon & Merritt appeared for plaintiff and C. E. Cuddeback and Lewis E. Garr for defendant. The next case called was that of Seely Darrone against George W. Hoagland and Emeline Smith. The plaintiff demanded In his complaint the possession of the house and lot near the old reservoir, which was the subject of litigation be­ tween Mr. Darrone and Mary J. West- fall some time 'ago. Mr. Darrone had built a house upon the property and otherwise improved it and then brought suit in the Supreme Court for the specific performance of a promise to give him a deed. The suit was pending over a year and, in the meantime, M’-s. Westfall sold the property to George W. Hoagland. In the absence of Mr. Darrone Mr. Hoagland took possession of the premises last Janu­ ary and rented them to Emeline Smith, wife of “ Sim ’’Smith, colored people, at a rental of $1 per month. Mr. Darrone served ejectment papers last April upon Mr. Hoagland and his tenant, and the cause was heard at an evening seseion of the court. After hearing the testimony on both sides, the Judge directed the jury to award the possession of the premises to the plaintiff and to give a verdict for the fair rental value of the premises dur­ ing the occupation of Mr. Hoagland. After a short deliberation, the jury awarded Mr. Darrone $3 a month as the value of the use and occupation of the premises, besides awarding possession. This verdict makes the plaintiff liable for the costs. Wm. H. Crane tried the case for the plaintiff and Wilton Bennet for defendant Hoagland. Defendant Smith did not appear. Wednesday the suit between Eber L. Brown and Jeremiah Bennett, farmers in the town of Minisink, was considered. It was said that the issue was a new one. The defendant planted willow trees along the line fence, the branches of which reached ovi r plaintiff’s lands. He sued for trespass, and the jury gave him a ver­ dict of $25, and the court directed a de­ cree to be entered compelling defendant to keep the trees thoroughly trimmed. Wm. Vanamee for plaintiff and George W. Greene for defendant.
