There was some talk among the few of the delegates of other names and the Rev. lectured Crawford of Mclntosh county made a motion which w is thought to conceal a movement In favor of Capt. M J I>oyh This was promptly shunted one s;do by the chairman, however, nnd Mr E*aken*s name* was tht*only one offered on th* floor of the convention. The nomination was mad* by Rev. N If Styles o!

The uomlnafion m t with gen et a I approval and was seconded by de|e gates from every county In the district. Mr. Eeaken was th* n nominated by ac clamation and the chairman was instruct -l to ap|*olm *t committee of five to con vey the notification.

Rev. N. H. Htylcs then made n speech, reviewing Hishop Turner's record since the war and severely criticising his course In •his ami former matters. The "Rev erend” was very harsh in some of his statement#, but got along very well until he undertook to dlscugs the differences be tween the two wings of the Methodist Fhurrh. and attributed the Bishop's de fection • the fact that he indonged to one wing of the church and President McKln- Icy to the other, and that the Pr< sklent had bestowed his favors chiefly upon those of his ow’ii wing. In this he was called down by some of the Methodist delegates, who announced that the speaker was bad ly mixed, and •hat he had been stick to Baptist differences, with which he was donbllcss better acquainted. This subject was evidently n tender one, and the parson tok his sent on a |*>lnt of order. Speeches were made by J. (\ Simmons. W. H. Kogan.

Just how the case will resula Is a matter that Is Interesting the military men of the city generally, while the friends of Corpl. Harris nnd Capt. Wilson also feel con | earned to know what view the court mav take of be alleged offenses charged *gln*t the former. 8o great Is this Inter est that one bet. at least, has been made | upon thj* result, a witness that was called i by the defense last nigh having testified, tn answer to a question from the Judge advocate, that he had made a bet the night before. laist night the court spent In hearing the | remaining evidence an*! the arguments'of | the .ounel for the accused and the Judge I advo< ite. It was not until L’ 30 o’ckx'k that adjournment was had. Several wit- I nesses were put up by !*©th the prosecu -1 (ton anl the def* n*e In rebuttal, and h was not until 10 15 that Capt. Cann start • and upon his argument in Harris' behalf It was at 11.45 that he concluded, bis Insistance upon the points In Harris' fa vor and his denunciation of the condu *t of officer* of the Blues taking up an hour and h half. Capt Cann's argument ami pica were pronouncc<l lmth able and eloquent by all who heard him speak. Ills effort was unquestionably of weight, and his talk throughout was followed with keen Inter est. 8o was that of Eleut. Barrow's, who declared that Capt. Wilson had act ed. not through malice. In bringing th. iharges, hut as any officer In the state service shofild have acted. The judge ad vocate nude no appeal, but confined hints* 1/ strictly to argument. He spoke for a little more than half an hour. Second Elcutenant o*orge J Barthel mers was the first witness put up by th* pros* cut lon. lie test died that it was at a tout dusk on Thursday evening, while the company was tn Koutavllle. that Corpl Harris had been arrested bv hkn This was when the secured was standing on a corner talking to ladles. Hairis did not. he said, have a dress tin form on. and It was never quite plain to him whether he wns clad in his undergarment or a pair of light trousers. A question wis raised by the counsel for the defendant as to th** witness' crgl nal testimony. In which the former allege! that Eleut. BarthelmeM hod seated that It was on Wednesday that Harris had be-n arrest* and. An .i|>|nml to the records siiowed that Eleut. I tart he 1 mess said h was sure it was on Miy 31. and that h<‘ thought that day f II *>n Wednesday. Th*- Ueut* nant Insist* 1 *! that It was on May 31. and that he could nut ►ay whither that date fell on a Wedmsdoy or Thursday, lie *ll*l not know, he said, who nad or dered Harris’ dr#a* uniform tuk n awa-. Fay member 8. F. Cook swore that he hal heard Harris use a vile epithet In speaking of Kleu;. Ilarthelmess while in quarters tit lulsvl)le. lie had had ni conversation with anyone, he declared, he for* he appeared u|>on the stand relative to what h** should swear in l*eh.if of the prosecution. He admitted that he had no* lieen on friendly terms with Harris. A qtnstion brought out the further admis sion from the witness tiwit he , ; id been online*! to quarters while |n Eoulsville for not going on guati duty when ordered by Eleut. liaritidiness. Private W. If Smith. Jr., said that Har ris ha*l not left the company at the depot, hut on the way there from the quarters tn Louisville He did not see Harris when he fell out of ranks, for Harris, he de clared, whs rather a "slick duck." hut. had he been in ranks, he would have seen him. He was reasoning from this fact of his not having seen Harris when he tes tified that th*- latter had fallen out before reaching the depot. Private Tomue Connolly testified that Harris had told him In Eoulsville that be had Jumped out of the window* because "• had an engagement with a young lady thi# he wished to keep. He had heard Corpl. Harris, he said, ask permission of Capt Wilson to remain over in Eoulsville. Tie* Judge advocate then announced that the slate would rest Its case. Private Walls was recalled by the de fense. He said It was on Friday evening, not on Saturday morning, that Harris had been r* b us*d after bring allowed to apolo gise. Private Ivey was also re* ailed and said he had seen Harris at a U.ill In Eoulsville on Friday night, showing that he could not then have been undeY arrest. He said, too. that t* had heard Eleut Barthclme** li t* "ih< ■ tak* aw * n*rn his. It was this witness who admitted that he had made a hei the night before as to th outcome of th#- case. With the last witness, the defense rest ed Its case, whereupon Capt. Cann and Lieut. Barrow Joined In the request that a brief recea he taken to admit of their going over their memoranda of evidence to shape their argument*. The recess was ’ taken, a i il, upon the court tiring cal let 1 to order again, Eleut. Barrow, the Judge ad vocate. sold he would forego his privilege of leading off with his argument, hut would indicate to the counsel for th** de fense what he pursK>a*d to maintain in his conclusion. Harris, the judge advocate declared, was absolute;)* guilty of the first charge, that of absence without leave, anl of the sec ond, cursing a superior officer. Upon the third charge, being drunk and disorderly, he sab! he woual not insist and would probably devote but slight attention to It In his arguments, the evidence upon the |Klnt having been conflicting and not con clusive. as w is generally believed by those who folio wed the case. Of th fourth charge of insubordination the accused, the Judge advocate said, was gulky. but he would not insist upon the first specification, that of his having been late In reporting for guard duty. Capt. Cann said he would like tn know what sections of military law and regula tions the Judge advocate would cite as cov ering the violations of which Harris is alleged to have been gulNy. as he could find no provision where'n It was forbidden for an enlisted man to absent himself from his company without Rave. Eleut Barrow named the sections, but told the court that Harris might be found guilty of conduct prejudictel o good order and military discipline and punished there for, even though he might no: be regard ed as guilty under the apecifle eectlons mentioned.
