The trouble, of allowing D.-niocratie localities to inllucnco liiinulihistii nominations hud long been and growing. Mr. Logan thought his ,IWM proposition was a reasonable one, umi did mil think tin: proposi- tions for which it was A substitute wore reason- able. If tliis comiMitiee were opposed to the old system it conl.l nay HU. Mr" Hicks, of Florida, protested against tho south being iiy tlio iicprivatiou of itoiu- Ihience in tho Republic-1'! nutmnal convention. Mr. Fryc opposed il r. Logan's substitute, boing entirely satisiie.l ihe old system was wrong, unjust, and .m: raucous. Mr. Logan asserted thai the objection to the proposed change was tiiat i: disfranchised tho Republicans of aud districts where the Republicans were a minority. That was not fair, or poliii.', or just If Kentucky had Republican votes, and Maine had UOO Republican votes, Kentucky would havo, under the proposed plan, four delegates in national Republican convention, and Maine would have twenty. That w us nnjust and that was why he against iu Mr. Valentine, of Nebraska, suggested whether it would not be better to wipe out senatorial representation eutirely and confine it to congressional districts, allowing one dele- gate for each district and an additional delegate for every Tt.i'Ou votns given in rue district for James A. Gartiohl He favored either tliat plan or the continuance of ihe present plan, and he did not care which would be adopted. Mr Logau olTorcd to withdraw his substi- tute, bnt Mr. Washbnm, of 'Minno-ota.appealod to him not to do so, ae ho thought there was more danger iu making a change than in going ou under the old plan. Mr. Logan' stated, however that his motive wag to allow 'those iu favor of the change to flee whether they could present anything which would moot the approval of the comnutoe. If no such plan wore presented, then ho would renew his substitute. A vote was then taken on the substitute, and resulted yeas nays lit, so the present plan of representation was retained. Mr Chandler desired to havo another testing of the question, and suggested a recess. Ho intimated that the motion had boon carried by the votes of southern and territorial delegates. Ho wanted to have another rote taken, uiid thought ho had the parliamentary right to in- sist upon a vote npon tho original proposition as amended. Mr. Logan the allusion to south- ern and territorial They wore all on an equality here. Mr. Chandler defended his right to allndo to the fact that the motion had been carried by southern and territorial votes. He simply wanted two or threo records of votoa. Tho chairman decided that tho vote should bow be taken on tho original motion as amended by tho substitute, and the original motion waa 23, 15. Mr. Chandler then offered the followingroBO- Intioue, which was adopted without diaoufl- 'Resolved, That the call of the Republi- can national convention shall he so broad aud liberal as to invite the co-operation (without imposing any other tost of fealty) of all citizens who are in lavor of elevating and dignifying tho American laborer; protecting and extending homo industries; giving free, popular education to the masses of tho people; securing free suffrage and an honest counting of tlio ballots, and ef- fectually protecting all human righta hi every bt our common country, aud who lire willing support tho nominees of the conven- tion."

He will not havo a preliminary examination, it in said, for several days. It ia claimed that tho evidence against him will bo Blight. In addition to Scholler'u financial difficulties and high inaurance another matter gave rino to suspicion agaiust This was no leas than an attempt to blow up the Newhall house by s KM explosion acme two weeks ago. About thia affair, William Hugliea, head porter at the Newhall, makes the following statement: "1 am in the habit of going to tho hotel about (i o'clock in Ihe morning. Ouo morning, about two weeks ago, I went up tho main entrance, ami when I got near tho elevator 1 smelt gas right away. The amell of gaa waa terribly strong, and seemed to come from the bar- room. I opened tho door, and was nearly knocked down, the odor waa ao overpowering. Just as I opened the door, thp barkeeper came in front way. I naked" him what the trouble was, and lie said ho didn't know, but thought it was tho gaa meter. We both rushed in, and looked at the meter, but it was all right. We came ont into tho bar-room and throw open the outside doors. I then noticod a Hma.ll blue llamo on one of the burners back in tlio room. I then looked up and I found that every one tho BIX chandeliers i had tho cud tu'nicU oil full force. 1 could i hardlv believe what saw, ami aaid to McCor- 1 mick" '5fv Ouil! what's tliia Ho aaid I he didn't know, and that Scholler was in tho place lie left. We turned all tho gas off, ami I went up-ntiura. I bild Mr. Antisde1 of it He asked mo if I lit a match; I told him I did not, and he said I did wrong. "Schellor didn't come around next day at all. It waa thruo days before he allowed up, and he eaid lie was sick. He wan asked about tho gas, and lie "aid lie said some one must have had a kov to tlin door and 'got in and turned them all Hughes says that a. boy known at "LitUo worked in tho bar-room, said that ho loft Hcheller in bia place about 8 o'clock tbat morning. Five bmlion more, making forty-two in all, were taken from tho ruins vfisterday afternoon. Thin swells the lift of those known to be dead to about aeventy-two. Concerning Schollcr'n condition and move- ments on the day preceding tho 'conllHgration. thia much has beou learned; Landlord Antisdel Baya that on Tuoaday afternoon Schollor came inlo the howl drank. He met him and Paid: "George, come with and led him into a private mom and talked and pleaded again with him, and aaked him to have some dinner and then go to bed. Anti-idol was then called 'away, and on returning expected to find him in he'd, but did not, and hat not seen him since. It appears that Scheilor re- turned to the bar-room m rage over Antisdors lecture and with the exception of a abort time remained there until, according to the statement of tho nigbt watchman of the hotel, after o'clock Wednesday morning. After that honr IIP visited the gaming-house of SholesANewbaucr with two friends and re- mained until after half-past o'clock From the g iming house he went homo, and had not been long in bed when bin old barkeeper, Maj. Biugham, roused him out for tho nre. Last evening a hulv called tho attention of a re- porter to the fact that Scheller viailud tho gam- ing house, for Lerhusoaiiu had tlio matter to her. The reporter asked: "What wan there peculiar to the visit of Sa'ieller to the gambling-room that your hue- Bund r-hotild call your attention to ity" "There is a scandal, sir. Why, I can show you in which Mrs. Schcller my husband to poison mo, or, what ia as bad, give me a dose of laudanum, and meet her in the Ncwhall house.
