FRED, OUAXT PIIEHEST Before the Convention assembled, im mense crowds visited the grand hall in which the National Republican Conven tion were to meet to choose a presiden tial candidate. At the apex la front of the chairman's desk was a gilded American eagle, and beneath it a por trait of Washington, ' On the right of rhe chairman's desfc was plaster bust of Gen. John A. Logan, in heroic size, draped with an American flag. Danc ing from one of the boxes a-, the right was a large painting of Logan's charge at the battle of Atlanta. On the face of the north and south walls of the sudito lium, framed in festoons of Urge Amer ican flags and surrounded by a circle of electric stars, were portraits of Lincoln and Grant, the designs Wing mammoth in proportion, and form two of the most striking details of the decorations. Flashing its parti-colored brilliancy full into the face of the audience and delegates, pended an American shield, formed of different colored electric lamjm. This shield, its horizon of stars, its strip of the Union, are all pictured out and nut in a basso relievo of light by flashing jets through red, white and blue globes. At points of exit and entrance to the ball, which dip like great wells into the audi torium, are tho nation's standards, planted at either side snd draped so as to hide the rough boards which torm the staircases of these avenue to the con vention, of which there are sufficient to empty the place in case of accident, in three minutes. ' The Boston club planted lis magnifi cent banner, five feet long, just bebind the stage and it proudly Coated, bearing in letters of gold upon a field of blue, the sentiments which appear to be upier most in the minds of the delegates. The banner is inscribed: "Home Market Club of Boston. American ways for American workingraen. American markets for the American people. Protection for Ameri can homes." This banner is marked by the delegate as they come into t b hall, and by spectator as they gather in the galleries and balconies. It was cheered tune after time. toe artangem eat or ablegate' scat was made to alphabetical order, begin ning with Alabama, on the extreme riht aisle, through the two big states of New York and Pennsylvania together on thi front, facing Washington's portrait on s Cine! of the chairman's platform. : The aine, Massachusetts. Minnesota, Ala bama, Arizona and Dakota delegations had front seat. The Ohio delegation was directly back of the New York neat, while Missouri, Iowa and and Illi nois are on the main isle near the center of the space reserved for the delegates. The space reserved for the District Columbia delegation, was designated by a white banner, marked in black letters. This U a conspicuous departure from the general plan of Toting delegations, tho situation of all others lemg designated by a blue silk banner, lettered in gold. A significant view was the open space of empty aeats In the Virginia delegation. N ' The doors were not opened until all ol the inferior arrrangements were complet ed and the crowd was kept waiting un til two Urge bouquets of cut flowers snd a floral shield were being nailed upon the chairman' desk, which bears in Greek letters thi inscription: "Jarnca A. Gar field was nominated from thi desk in 1830 and James G. Blaine was nominated from this desk in 1884." Chairman Jones, of the national com mittee, came upon the platform just be fore the convention wa called to order and brought with him two handiome oak gaveU, one merely poliahel and in tended for bard pounding.
