When State Chairman Stranahan
brought down his gravel an assemblage
of about 1,200 greeted bitn. Flags and

corner of the balcony a brass band
was stationed After the usual pre

Senaenderfer, Philadelphia; William
McEneny, Titnsville; Major John D.

Thomas Mullin, Pittsburg; N. L. But
ler, Harrisbuig. Mr. Wright spoke
briefly. Committees on permnnent
organization, credentials and resolu
tions were chosen, aud the convention
then took a recess,
During the recess, the oommittees
on credentials and resolutions beid
secret bnt lively meetings. The cre
dential committee took up the contest
from the fourth district, Allegheny
and settled the matter "by unseating
the sitting delegates, J. J. McCabe
and P. Melnerney, who were denomi
nated as being "against the state ad
ministration," and seating George S
Fleming and T. M. Brophy, the con
testants, who are favorable to Mr.
Harrity. A. G, Crosby, of Erie, who
subsequently nominated Mr. Hilling
for lieutenant governor, was chairinuu
of this committee. When the commit
tee met It was agreed that nono but
contestants and their witnesses would
be heard.
William J. Brennan, the Allegheny
county chairman, who was also a mem
ber of the committee, tried in vain to
make a speech in behalf of Messrs. Mc
Cabe and Melnerney. He then begun
a tirade against "the ontrageous pro
ceedings," bnt finally apologized for
bis rude remarks and gave notice that
he would submit a minority report to
the convention. Mr. Brennan made a
motion that the contestants and the
sitting delegates all be admitted to the
convention and that tbey be give a half
a vote each. This was r j cted by a
vote of 45 to 5.
The committee on resolutions en
gaged in a somewhat heated dispute
over the ninth plank of the platform
which was characterized ns an attack
upon the American Protective associa
tion, The plunk originally read: "We
re-assert the old Democratic doctrine
of equal rights and religious liberty,
we are opposed to all secret political
organizations which strike at freedom
of conscience, and we declare that no
party can justly be deemed national,
constitutional or in accordance with
American principles which is animated
by a spirit of politicel proscription or
religious intolerance."
T. F. Emmons, of Easton, a mem
ber of the resolutions committer, object-id
to the wording of this portion of
the platform. He declared that the
reference to secret organizations was
likely to be misconstrued and might
cause feeling among Democrats. Mr.
Emmons held that if the resolution was
aimed a. any particular organization,
it should sty so direotly. He moved
that all after "religious liberty" bo
strioken out, bnt his motion was de
feated. The outcome was the omission
of the words "secret political," sad in
this form the plank, with the balance
of the platform, was submitted to the
The committee on credentials was
the first to report when the convention
reassembled nt 2 :25 o'clock. A majority
report recommending that contestants
Fleming aud Brophy be seated was
presented and carried, Mr. Brennan's
minority report in favor of Messrs, Mc
Cabe and Melnerney being defeated.
There was a quarter of an hour's
heated debate in the convention over
tbii matter. The committee on
permanent organization recom
mended that Attorney Geueral
William U. Hensel, of Laue
oaster, be elected as permanent chair
man of the convention and that the
other temporary officers, with the ex
caption of Mr. Wright, be continued.

This was adopted, and Mr. Housed was
condnoted to the chair by H. S. Steel, of
Northampton; Georgi J, Bennar, of
Adams, and Bernard ftlcKenna, of Al
legheny. The applause which greeted
tho attorney general must have been
gratifying to him for it was niven In a
generous quantity. Mr. Henwl ad
dressed the convention at length.
When Mr. Hensel had couclnded the
committee on resolutions, through the
chairman, Arthur G. Dewalt, of Le
high, reportod tho platforro.which was
accepted. In addition to tho platform,
given below, this reference to Presi

We declare that tiis conditlou lias fol

Resolutions Adopted at tne Denver
Meeting Silver and Female Suf
frage Favorably Considered.
Denver, Col., Juno 27 The Na
tional Liague of Republican clubs this
evening adopted the following resolu
tions! Tho representatives of tho National
League of Republican clubs of the United
States iu convention assembled at the cap
ital of the centennial state throw their
heads iu sorrow and humiliation at the
spectacle of incapacity which the Democra
tic preeeuts to our country and deplores
the calamities which the giviug of power
to the present administration has brought
upou our people.
We congratulate the American people
that this administration wus compelled by
public opinion to abandon its un-Amei icau
Hawaiian policy. In contrast with the
ehamef til record of the Democratic party,
we exult over tho record of glory which
tbo Republican party has made. Its
achievements and its triumphs extending
over thirty yeurs establish it as tho most
masterful, enlightened uud prudeut or
ganization that has ever exited.
In tho face of present disaster to our
country, it is with increased solemnity
that wo once mori renew our allegiance to
the Republican party and proclaim its
cardinal principles. We believe in a free
ballot aud u fair count and we demand
stiph legislation as will lusure to every
citizen the right to cast one free ballot iu
any election and to have that ballot justly
count' d and cast. It is a noteworthy
fact that the Democratic party lii
congress consistent iu notning else was
uuauiiuous on tho repeal of the federal
electiou laws, thus openly confessing the
party of fraud. We declar.i our belief in
the doctrine of protection to American
labor, American industries aud American
homes. We also believo in such reciprocal
trade with nations us will increase tho
market for the products of onr farmers,
factories, forests aud ininoi without in
creasing the competition which tends to
lesson wages aud degiado our labor. We
denounce the proposed vicious and destruc
tine legislation known as the Wilson bill
aud flarue-lly appeal to liepublican Uuited
Kates senators to oppose its passage by all
honorable means. Wh believe in the uso
of gold and silver as money metals, malu
talued on a perfect parity aud inter -convertibility,
We do uot believe that thero
will be a permanent return of prosperity
to our country until tbo full use nud high
est position of silver shall bo restored and
we favor such legislation as will bring
about this result.
The Republican party is the constant
friend of the toldiers and sailers of the
Unlou. The pledges of the Democratic
Jiarty to tho defeuders of tho republic be
ore election was false and fraudulent and
have been shamefully disregarded since
election. Wo condemn unsparingly the
treatment now accorded the helpless,
mained and crippled defenders of the flag
and to the widows nud orphans of our dead
patriots as uufair and cruelly unjust. We
are most heartily in favor of the prompt
admission into the Union of the terri
tories of Utah, Now Mexico. Arizona aud
Okloboma, and we condemn the policy of
the Democratic administration iu exclud
ing aud depriving theui of their rights.
We demand that new safeguards be in
corporated in our immigration and nat
uralization laws to movent unworthy im
migrouts from landing on our shores and
obtaining citizenship.
We ngeiu commend to the favorable
consiiK-iatiou of the Republican clubs of
the.Uuited States, as a matter of education,
tho question of .grunting suffrage to wo
men. We congratulate tho women of
Colorado and Wyoming on their possession
of the elective franchise, anil wo cordially
invite their co operation lu the work f
rescuing the country from Democratic
and Populistio misrule.
