Albert a commenced summary of tie proceedings of the National Republican nominating convention and proceedings preliminary thereto. For several Days Republican delegates and politicians have been crowding into Chi. Cago. The hotels up to june 1st, wore All full and Over crowded and further accommodations were denied and yet the crowd was steadily augmented by every in coming Tram. Excitement was at fever heat the Promin ent leaders Conkling Cameron Logan and others were present. The friends of Grant Sherman and blame were consulting and Cau Cusing speeches were being made in 1 ote corridors and at Street Corners and processions and bands of music were parading the streets men wearing the Bridges of their respective chiefs Atul a general commotion of surging humanity convulsed the City. Exciting rumours ran like electrical currents through the swaying crowds ill or Well founded and How order could Ever be brought of so much confusion really seemed to be a stubborn problem. Great As had been the excitement up to june first on that Day it had reached White heat. Or. Hoar of Massachusetts was reported to have received a letter from or. Withdrawing his name. Notwithstanding this or. Hoar said the Massachusetts delegation would cast their first vote for Edmunds and afterwards trans Fer their to Blaine. Ii having been announced that at 11 o clock an adjourned meet ing of the National committee would be held and that a further refusal of or. Cameron to entertain the anti unit Rule Resolution would result in his immediate decapitation the Rush was for the Vicinity of the committee rooms where the question at Issue was being widely discussed. There were two opinions among the majority of the committee one led by senator Chaffee was for the removal of Cam Eron and the Radical change of All commit tees. The other was held by such men As gov. Jewell of Connecticut who would Only consent to the removal of Cameron or the refusal of senator Conkling and other Grant leaders to Promise not to seek to enforce the unit Rule in the preliminary organization. Ii. That pledge were Given them or. Cameron and Secretary Keogh were to be left undisturbed. If refused then the conservative men would vote with the Radical men for removal. The majority were deter mined to get a View of the Roll of members and see that the claimants for seats were not Adverse to tie interest of the opposing Candi dates. As they were in Possession of the Hall they Felt Able to command the situation. A committee of conference was appointed on de posing Cameron. A tuesday afternoon Tele Gram has the following the National com Mittee reconvened p.m., and adjourned after a two hours session. A number of the me Jabers of the committee say that the conclusions reached were that Cameron should re Leftin chairman of the committee and that their regular delegations from Louisiana Kan Sas Utah and Illinois should be admitted to the temporary organization that the contest in those states should by submitted to the committee of credentials and that tha unit Rule should be enforced or not at the pleasure of the convention that coupling Logan and Cameron have pledged themselves to inter Fere in no Ivay in regard to the action of the convention respecting the unit Rule. The committee decided to distribute the tickets to Morrow at n. A. There was a Rumor on the Street tuesday night that Sherman had withdrawn but when traced up it proved to have no move foundation than a Telegram which he is said to have sent a Friend saving the unit Rule ought to be beaten and advising that it be done even if it Tould Sac Ilic c him. The anti Grant men say the Rule is now beaten then if lie vote is taken by states for Many of the states have decided to vote against that Rule despite the fact Tufit n majority of the number favor Gen. Grant. If the unit Rule is abolished As it will undoubtedly be the opponents of Grant claim the individual vote would make a majority against it of Over one Hui red. The Grant have made the claim if the Rhino is contestants fail to gain seats that their chances for nominating Grant Are assured and that the danger of defeat trill be passed. The friends of Sherman and Blaine on the Oft eve hand express equally the Confidence that they have made gains other than those in new York and Pennsylvania. The National Republican committee which met this afternoon did not decide that Louisi Ana should be admitted to the temporary organization. The Grant managers had a meet ing tuesday night which comprised 327 per sons of Wixom 310 were delegates to the National convention. They claim this does not represent their strength although they do not claim nomination on thellys ballot. Nothing was said at the meeting of a Compromise but on Tho contrary a determination was expressed by the two speakers Conkling and Logan to stand by Gen. Grant. They spoke confidently predicting his nomination. The Blaine delegates also held a caucus. They set up a claim of 300 on the first ballot with a probability of subsequent rain. Sex Secretary Boutwell admitted to a reporter that his count left Grant 40 or 50 Short of a majority. The Minnesota delegation has organized As Fol lows d. Sinclair chairman j. C rehire d. Morrison vice president d. Sin Clair on committee on resolutions d. A bin on committee on Cresienti j. V. Daniels on on organization e. F. Drake on committee on rules. It was Ulso resolved that e. F. Drake present the name of or. Vii Dom to the convention As a saudi Date for president. A general meeting of minnesotans was held tuesday night. Tween Cue and two Hundred Mlynne Sot ians were in the City. The new York delegation had a Long and Stormy session tuesday Over the unit Rule question. Conkling insisted that the state would voters a unit and refused to believe in the authenticity of the Signa tires to the manifesto until personally assured by various signers that they had actually signed it. To made personal appeals to Tho so called kick ers with the exception of four whom he warmly accused of Porf Lity and who respond Joti to licit own defense. Finally after a four hours session a vote was taken on the question of sustaining the unit Rule and stood 45 for and i3 against not voting 2. The foregoing gives a Birds Eye View though necessarily somewhat imperfect of the exciting preliminary proceedings preparatory to the assembling of the convention on wednes Day Juno 3. Tie convention was to be called to order at noon. No nominations could be expected until thursday if even then. A National convention of so Many conflicting ele ments producing such intensity of feeling and calling Forth to Active and sustained a Strug Gle has probably never before been convened. Yeti there will be a Way out but what that Way will be no Man can redial. The result Only can solve the great problem. On wednesday june 3, senator came Ron chairman of the Reub Jajcan National com Mittee called the convention to order at precisely a. In. Rev. A. Invoked divine blessings on the Secretary Keogh read the Roll of or. Cameron proceeded to briefly. He said gentlemen of i Usk your attention for a fear moments. Fore the convention enters Pir Tae important duties that have called is together i ask your attention for a Ingleiv moment. During the congas Subt ended there has been manifested in Many sections of the country considerable bitterness which i Trust will entirely disappear before entering upon the Gravo duties devolving upon us. Let there but but one motive governing our action and let there be a determination to place in nomination the for incest possible candidates not Strong in themselves but Strong in the Confidence and affections of the people men who will command the respect of the whole civilized world. Vrh Eri the nominations Are made and the convention has completed its work let there be but one sentiment animating All Earnest sincere and unselfish republicans and let that be that each shall vie with the other in carrying our grand old party through the coming contest to Victory. Or. Cameion then nominated Hon. G. F. Hoar of Massad gussets temporary chairman. The nomination was agreed to with great applause. Or. Hoar in taking the chair said gentlemen of the convention i thank you for this distinguished Mark of your Confidence. It is Twenty Tearh since the Republican convention met in this City which alter a Stormy but Friendly contest put in nomination Abraham Lincoln and Hau Nihil Hamlin. Lincoln has gone to his rest his companion upon that ticket in decidedly fresh and vigorous Ace is present with us to Day to give us counsel from the store of an experience gathered from a life of honorable service. The democratic party was ruled then As now by the South. The single purpose of its being was to give political supremacy to the oligarchy of the South and office to its sub servant Northern allies. In the Pursuit of that end every great Public interest was sacrificed or disregarded expending Little for Public improvements either in the West or in Inland Rivers or lakes. The democratic Paity confronts us to Day As i said unchanged in purpose in temper to character United in nothing else proposing no other measure of policy it urges its War fare upon the safeguards which the nation has thrown around the purity of its elections it can see no other evil except that h free Man should cast a free vote under the Protection of National authority. In Louisiana and Mississippi it is the accomplice of the White league and the Kun flux. In South Carolina it takes the honest ballot from the Box and stuffs the tissue ballot. In its place in new York it issues fraudulent naturalization papers three score thousands in nun Abr. La Maine its ambitious larceny tries to pilfer a whole state government at once. In Delaware it looks with complacency on the whipping Post. As in War it found in the Constitution nothing which could protect the nation so in peace it found nothing there which can protect the National Honor. Can you find in the history of the democratic party for the Post sixteen years anything that the demo cratic party has either done. Or tried to do except to break Down Legal Safe guards so As to make these things the Republican party has no such subdued slaves freed Public constructed Homestead naturalization treaty Public credit re established debt diminished sound currency restored a Flag respected above All. But not for these things alone or chiefly does the Republic so party the Republic lives the kept Briean party lives that every Man within our Borders May dwell secure in a Happy Home May cast and have counted his equal vote May Send Liis child at the Public charge to a free school. While these things came to pass from the Atlantic to the 1 Pacific from Canada to the Gulf the Mission of our party u not accomplished nor its warfare with its ancient Ach Ersary ended. Or. Hale of Otle red a Resolution that the Roll of the states be called and that Mem Bers be named by tie chairman of each state for members of the committee on permanent organizations Rule credentials Ana of resolutions when the names of senator Conkling and Gen. Garfield were reached by the Secre tary in calling the committees there were lout cheers which Wero repeated Wilh great heartiness. The territory of Utah was omit Ted from tha Roll by mistake of the Secretary. This u Little discussion and explanation when l was on tue Roll a Resolution was adopted that All contests should be referred to the committee on credentials without debate or recommendation by the com edition. When Illinois was called a contest re corded in behalf of the ten congressional tricks of. State by or. Henderson a it of invite to this convention from stale of Iowa. The various Stales were Calk a i jul i be chairman give Utice As a Rule that tue credentials of the regular Selena ions had been sent to the of the and where Yonuss a Weru Antoum in the same manner of the other delegations As in the ease of Pennsylvania by the chairman and gave notice to the effect in Penn Sylvania two contests in congressional districts sixth and niuta were recorded. This business being nearly concluded or. Conk Ling in behalf of the republicans of Utah presented it protest and contest from that body which was according to tie Rule sent to the committee. The committees on credentials rules Busi Ness and permanent organization and resolutions were assigned rooms and at once proceeded to transact business in the quarters adjoining the stage. Or. Conkling obtained the floor and said one of these committees might report this p. In. Or evening but at least one that on credentials would not a ready to report until to Morrow morning. He suggested that tie convenience of All members would be Subserve and business be for warded by adjournment. He therefore moved that the convention adjourn to 11 o clock to Morrow morning. Or. Hale of Maine re marked that this seemed to be proper action As nothing could be accomplished by an even ing session which would not be done As Well or better in the Early hours of the morning. The chairman put the question and the Conven Tion adjourned. June a avast expectant crowd was present at the opening of the convention at is m. Rev. A. Noble d. D., in eloquent words invoked the divine Blessing on the Day s proceedings. Or. Conkling asked the committee Ori credentials if the Ewere ready to report the chair understood they would not be ready for several hours. Or. Conkling said it was essential that it should be known who were and who were not members of Tho convention before proceeding to business. He moved a adjournment to six o clock in the evening. Tho motion debate ensued. A vote was taken and was largely against adjournment the committee on at its session last night adopted Tho Cincinnati convention of 1876, with three exceptions one of them important. Order has been. Section has been added Rule which will do Anivay with the unit Rule allowing individual delegates to vote As they please it now reads As follows Rule the record of the Voto by states the Vore of each and the District of Columbia shall lie announcer by the chairman and in Case the votes of any state territory or the District of Colury. Bia shall be divided the chairman shall announce the number of votes cast for any candidate or for or against any proposition but if exception is taken by any Delegate As to the correctness of such announcements by the chairman of his delegation this president of the convention shall direct the Roll of Mem Bers of such delegation to be called and the result recorded in accordance with votes individually Given. Third in the National Terri tories and District of Columbia Are not allowed representation. Or. Jay of Michigan moved that the con. Test acts from Illinois had the right to be heard before the convention is through with such counsel As they May have selected. Objected to and after Brief discussion the motion was withdrawn. Or. Fierson of new York chair Man of the Corn Mitzee on the permanent organization reported harmonious and unanimous agreement i recommending the temporary omers or. Hoar for chair Man and or. Keogh for Secretary of the Pei Lua neut organization. A vice president Ivas also nominated and a Secretary from each state and territory. Or. Peterson took the chair and put the question of adoption of the report and on its adoption introduced the permanent chairman Hoa. G. F. Hoar who was received with Hearty applause and who briefly returned thanks for the Honor done him. Or. Frye moved that the or be requested to report. Or. Sharp o Vork stated that the committee had prepared a majority report but that he had been directed to prepare a minority report irom nine states. He trusted he would be allowed to prepare that report he had not time. It was furthermore agreed by the committee that no action should be taken till the views of the minority were taken. Or. Frye then Bis motion and moved to adjourn till live o clock p. After remarks by or. Frye the chair put the motion and declared tie recess taken till 5 o clock p. In. The convention met at 5 p. M., pursuant to adjournment was called to order by the chairman. Or. Of Iowa said i understand that the committee on credentials will not be Able to report at this session of the convention i therefore move or. Chairman. That the committee on rules be now requested to make their report to the convention so that we May proceed with the business. The motion was discussed at considerable length and with a Good Deal of spirit and was lost yeas 318, nays 4u6. This vote is considered a test of the Grant and anti Grant strength in the convention. The committee on Amend ments not being ready to report the Conven Tion adjourned until Friday morn Kig june 4, to await their report a special of thursday afternoon Jane 3, says there was another notable incident Gar Field came in about la Steep minutes late and As he walked Down the aisle he was greeted with great applause. This applause was significant because it came from the delegates and not from the galleries. Acain when he Rose to explain the situation of the commit on rules the applause was great Ohio is playing fast and Loose with Sherman and if there is a Genaria break a i would rather have Garfield s chances than Sherman s. I met Garfield this morning and asked his views of the situation. He replied Grant is Defeated peradventure. And beyond that every thing is at sea. If Grant is Defeated he is quite right in baying All is at sea with almost a certainty that it will be neither Blaine nor Sher Man. Chicano june 4. Much rain having fallen during the Early morning the third Day of the National convention dawned a trifle Csc my and Cool. The delegates were Well tired out by the committee and by the Active canvass of last evening and were Blower than Ever in getting into the exposition barrelling and slower Itile in taking seats. The audience too had been on the ground being unused to the Early hour of meeting. Only about half the seats when the hour appointed arrived were occupied. Among the delegates was col. Ingersoll As a prosy for the Delegate from Knox county 111. The band for nearly an Hoar discoursed Lively my Bic. Among the distinguished Guerita on the a Togo. Were his Royal highness Prince Leopold and members of his part composed of h. Collins esq., c. B., England England col Mcneil of Victoria. Oot Arin. The i party was accompanied also by the princes Louise and suite who arrived this morning and Are guests at the grand Pacific hotel. At a. The convention was called to order. The chairman called on Kev. Arthur Little the new England Church who offered prayer. The chair at once recognized or. Conkling. I who offered a Resolution which be Hepol would be unanimously adopted otherwise he would Call for a division. It As follows Lif liw the sense of this convection that every member of it is Bont in Honor to support its nominee whoever that nominee May be and that no Man a hold hold a spat Here who is not ready to 50 Ayree. Or. Hale of Maine said he took it for granted that a Republican convention did t need Stich instructions. A Hough be came Here with preferences he had yet to any esp Estitia by any Delegate that be would not stand by the final ii Caiiou the convention. Is Hud no doubt that Conkling be fond shoulder to shoulder with the friends of candidate who be nominated. He support the nominee and be expected cuu Kiing would do the same. The vote taken one or two negatives were heard and or. Con bling suggested that the Roll of be made in order to discover what delegates in the lie publican convention refused to vote for this Resolution. Or. Bandage of committee also demanded the yeas and nays. A vote was take As to whether such a vote should be recorded and it was agreed to. When West Virginia was called there Weie three negative votes. This was explained by a. W. Campbell chairman of the delegation who said there ate three members of Tho Dele gation from West Virginia absent serving on the committee. Those votes Aye and three votes no. Hisses and cries of put him from the galleries. The delegates from Arizona District of colombia., Idaho Montana and Washington territory were absent when the Roll was called. At the conclusion of the Call the Secre tary announced the result As 716 votes Nye and 13 votes no and the Resolution was adopted. Sir. Conkling i wish to offer a Resolution which in one Momont 1 will reduce to writing the substance of which meanwhile i will sub Mit orally to the convention. Revalued that the delegates who pm this toll Call Hove voted no on this Resolution do not deserve and have forfeited their votes in Thia convention. General applause. Or. Campbell of West. Virginia i Hope for tile Benefit of those who Voied in the negative that the gentleman from new repeat his remark. The chair the gentleman from new reducing his Resolution to writing and will Send it to the chair. The gentleman from new York moves the following Resolution the Secre tary Reading of Solvedt that the delegates who have voted that they will not abide the action of the convention Don t deserve and have forfeited their votes in the convention loud and continued applause or. Campbell of Maryland or. Chairman before Thia Resolution is put to the convention 1 desire to state that ail through the troubles of the last Twenty five years i have consistently and always supported our state and National Republican nominee butt or. Chairman i feel a Republican Tho nigh there is a principle in this question and i will never come into any convention and agree before hand Tiit whoever May be Nomin ated by the convention shall have my App Laass and hisses sir As a Freeman whom god made free i All ways intend to carry my sovereignty under Iny own hand. I never intend that any body of men shall take it from me. I Don to or. Chah than make my living by politics. I make it by Rev labor As a newspaper editor and i am riot afraid to go Homo and Oay i stood Here in Thia convention As i was not afraid to stand up in the state of West but 29 men were found to vote for Abraham Lincoln and when that party had risen to Day to votes. 1 am not afraid to go Home and face the men there As i have faced them on All questions. A. C. Moore of West i differ with my brother member from West Vir Ginia and cast my vote Aye on Tho Resolution yet i do insist and demand upon Bis part As Well As a Delegate from that state the right to Otter his sentiments upon any and every question. On this Call he is responsible to his people and the people alone. In the name of god it come to this that one that has been As staunch a or. Campbell to my knowledge in behalf of republicanism when it Cost something to be a Republican should be disfranchised. Aye when the dark Clouds of 1801 lowered Over what is now the Little state of West Virginia when it was to become the Greab Battle ground As it states a. W. Campbell was standing holding Aloff the Flag of his country and battling for it 1 differ from him and come Here to vote for the nominee of this convention whosoever May it be yet i insist and demand in behalf of my state his to utter his sentiments. I ver since i was old enough to Cist a Rote i have to say to the gentleman from new York that i have been As consistent a Kepu Lioan As be has been and More cheers. I have farther to say to the gentleman from. New York that when the War broke out in 1sg1, i was then a boy of but eighteen years of age and i went into the from the state of Indiana sworn in in Camp Morton and find not know a Man in the. And i was in the army three Long years i made if the gentlemen of the convention please if your Honor please in 1870 More than one Hundred speeches for the nominee of the Lle publican party and i am informed that the gentleman from new York made but one. Loud Roar of applause i like to see a gon Leman practice what be preaches and it is a notorious fact that Wenth gentleman has failed in a the past to secure what be wanted Troni the bands of the Republican he has Given it As Hearty a support As i have. I object to teat Resolution for this. That Resolution recited that the Man who dare assert his Independence a this convention is not worthy of a seat in this body. I Bay he is and am objecting to it for that reason and not because i Don t intend to sup port the nominee of this convention. I do no matter who he is. Or. W. H. Young of Tennessee a coloured understand something of politics in Tennessee. I hate to see turmoil or any thing of the kind among my Peers but i do feel bound to Bay something Here because mat term Are shaping themselves or Are being brought out which a sooner or later to Tell the destiny of the be publican party in the South. Now this is no Small question and it is a q us Tion in which we Southern people Are inter ested. I want to know this if they intend to join any other party in Case they Are not satisfied Here. Then if so what right have they to help to make a Choice. If they intend to unite with Tho democratic party then what right have they to make Choice with in. If they intend to be silent and say they will not support in Nomi Nee that will leave them without a vote. I would rather absent myself from thin Conven Tion or sneak out not voting with the party than retain my seat in this convention. Now i have this to say that unless the be publican party in the North in the East and in the West determine to stand to the shoulder and enter the Battle with the Republican party in the South she will count democratic every time and you can t help it. Bat the Day gentlemen that Yon have the nerve to stand to the Republican party of the South a she has stood together All Over this country it will be then that the electoral College will have an addition from the Northern states and have it counted. All we ask a men with Backbone and not men who go uie Gate and help Fellows in and step out themselves. Or. Garfield on rising received lond applause. Headid i fear this convention is about to commit a great error and before they act i Beer leave to state the Case. Every Dele Gate in this convention except three have voted for the Resolution. Three gentlemen who voted against it have risen in their places find each Roan he said that be expects and intends to support the nominee of this convention. But they say it was not according to their judgment a Wise thing at this time to pass the Resolution which All the rest of us Are for. Are they to be Dis franchised because they thought it was not the time to pass the Resolution that we voted for that is the question and that is the whole question. It these gentlemen bad risen in their places and said 1 will not vote for Youv nominee the question would be pertinent and entirely a different one. J is very Delegate Here have i republicanism inquired of before this j convention for an ? vec Omu Here As be publicans and for the people who sent it i and in Timeir name and by their rights we vote i us every Resolution Aye or no and we Are re i a possible for our votes to our constituents and not to anybody else. There never was a convention there Nevor can be a convention of which i am one equal in right and Power very other Delegate that shall by vote bind my vote to everything on this Earth i by my eminent. 1 regret that these gentle Irien thought it Best to break the j Harmony of this convention by their but they Tell the Conven Tion their was not and did not mean that they would not Vuto for the Nomi Nee of the convention but Only that they did not Shitik the Rej Olu Tiou at tins time noted on their own right not by mine. 1 do not know the gentlemen nor their of filiation nor their relations to the candidates except one of Tieru and one them i knew in the dark Maysoe Silvery and for Twenty Long years in the midst of slavery Boa stood up for Liberty with a Clear sighted courage and a Brave heart equal to the Kepu Lioan that lives on this Globe and if Muir convention expel him then we must pledge ourselves at the end of every vote to inquire How Many that voted against us shall go oat. I Trust after the statement that has been made by the three delegates from West Virginia the distinguished gentleman from new York will deem it a matter of pleas ure on his part to withdraw the Resolution and allow the convention to proceed to business. Or. Pax by move that the Reso Lution be Laid on the table. Senator i beg to ask that the Roll be called that being a test question. Hisses the chair in its discretion will direct the Roll to be called. The motion is not debatable. H. G. Caster of. Ask the Gen Remau from Chili forum to withdraw Tho motion to table for a moment that i May make u statement. Or. Pix by declined to withdraw and the chair directed the Roll to be called when or. Conkling said there being a difference of understanding around me whether the delegates referred to in that Resolution did state that they would support the nominee of this convention. Committee on credentials be instructed to re port. Adopted the chair the chair wishes to be heard in i caking a statement to the convention and the galleries. The National Republican convention bos supposed it would give great pleasure to persons not members of the convention assembled Here to witness its proceed Ings and accordingly arrangements have been made by Wiloh ten thousand citizens Are present As lookers on. Bat it is quite obvious that it a an abuse of the Courtesy of the convention for gentlemen in the galleries to undertake to express disapprobation of the sentiments which Are uttered by the speakers Here. One of the most illustrious soldiers of the country whose name and Fame Are part of its history wag hissed from the galleries of this convention when he was expressing his opinion in order As a Delegate. The chair will deem it his duty to cause any portion of the galleries to be cleared from which such interruption again shall come. The american people Are gentlemen and the gentlemen who sit in the galleries will oblige the chair if they will co operate Wilb him in the difficult duty of enforcing order. The representative of the committee on credentials ready to report in obedience to the order of the convention or. Joy of Fili Bigun the chairman of the committee has not been in the House Thi morning the chair the chair is informed that the chairman of the committee on credentials is not in the Ball. Or. Sewell in order that the time of the convention May not be wasted pending the report of the committee on credentials i move that the chairman of the coj1mittke on bui.e8 be instructed to report with the understand ing that no action be taken on that report until afer the report of the committee in credentials. Senator Conkling and action upon it. The chair does the gentleman accept the modification or. Bewell i accept it. At the request of the chair or. Garfield chairman of. The committee on rules stepped Forward to the platform while or. Bruce of Mississippi one of the vice presidents at the request of the chair relieved him temporarily. Or. Garfield then step cd Forward and said or. President i am instructed by the com Mittee on rules and orders of. Business to act for it 1 will request the Secretary to read the report of the committee. Norz the full report of the committee sent oat but owing to the break canned by the storm has not been received Here. Bales Given below is however the Only matter in which there waa any diversity of opinion and with reference to which there was a majority and minority report. J Rule eight in Tho record of the vote by states the vote of each state territory and the District of Columbia shall be announced by the chairman and in Case the of any state territory or the District of Colombia shall be divided the chairman Ball announce the number of votes cast for any Delegate or for or against any proposition but if exception is taken by any Delegate a to the Correct Ness of such announcements by the chairman. Of his delegation the president of the Conven Tion shall direct the Roll of members of Bach delegation to be called and the result recorded in accordance with votes individually Given. Sir. Garfield i Don t understand that rules Are now up for discussion but the convention has directed that the report be made for the information of the House.
