Ohlcnnrn. July C The national com
mittee liPKlnnitiR Its second meetlni:
i at noon today transacted Us business
at a single session, disposing of all the
contests for scats and voting 2" to
;'3 to report the name of Senator David
H. Illll. of New York, for temporary
chairman of the national convention
This was -the test vote-In the coinivV .

strength. The silver showing v.

"avid n iiii.u
made by the presence of several
proxies of members of the commit
tee who would have voted for Hill had
they been present. There were also
one or two members of the committee,
who. within the past few days, had an
nounced the transfer of their allegiance
from gold to silver, notably Mr. J. L.
Norrls, of the District of Columbia,
and Mr. Arthur Sexvall, of Maine. Af
ter the calling of the roll Secretary
Sheerln stated that the Clark contest
ants from Texas, known as gold men,
had withdrawn from the fuither con
test for seats In the convention. The
wlthdnu.val was accompanied by a
statement of the occasion which im
pelled them to enter upon the content
and now to voluntarily abandon It. This
statement was read by the secretary
and made a part of the records of the
Senator Jones, representing the steer
ing committee of the lii-Metalllstio
league, was given an opportunity to ad
dress the committee. He stated that
the silver men had no -candidate to
presmt for the temporary chairman.
The selection of anyone who was In
accord with the Idea of the silver men
would be acceptable to them, and he
urged In the Interest of harmony that
the wishes of the majority of the
convention be not antagonized.
The committee decided to proceed
with the consideration and settlement
of the contested cases first and that
from Nebraska was settled for General
Keating and his associates, silver men,
without a vote. In the cases over whic h
a contest was made, fifteen minutes
' .is given to each side for argument.
The first case of theklnd called was
that of John P. Ftenzet, gold, against
Charles M. Cooper, silver, from the
seventh (Indianapolis) district of Indi
ana. Mr. Cooper made his own argu
ment, while Attorney General Oreen
smlth spoke for Mr. Frenzol. Cooper
had been recognized by the state con
vention of Indiana, and he was placed
on the temporay roll by a Vote of 47
to 1, the negative vote being cast by
Mr. Campbell, of Michigan.
A contest brought by the sliver men
for seats for three districts In Michigan,
was argued for the contesting gold men
by Mr. Kllott O. Stevenson, chairman
of the gold delegation, and for the sil
ver men by Mr. Daniel J. Campau, the
Michigan member of the national com
mittee. On motion of Mr. Charles S.
Thomas, of Colorado, the gold members
were placed oa the temporary foil, Mr.
Campau's being the only vote cast for
the contestants.
Mr. D. J. M.thoney spoke for the con
testing gold elegates from Nebraska,
headed by Mr. Castor, and he warned
the Democratic party, through the na
tional commltte. of the dinner there
Wit '
was before it of defeat at the polls
should It nominate a Populist rather
than a -Democrat. Mr. Smith replied
for the Bryan silver delegation and by
the first test of the afternoon 27 to 2.1
It was decided to place the Castor dele
gation on the temixjrary roll.
Next came' the Ohio contest that
from the Eighteenth district wherein
John H. Clark, gold man, sought the
place of Conrad Schexveitzer, sliver man.
The gold men had been reeognlztd by
their district convention and the silver
men by the state convention and their
cases were presented to the committee
by Mr Clark in person for himself nnd
Mr. Raff and by Mr. John C. Weldy for
the silver men. The committee voted
21 to 17 to sustain the decision of the
state cnventlon and gave the silver
men a place on the roll.
A rather unexpected contest came up
from South Dakota, where a delegation
of silver men, headed by Dr. rtoss,
sought to secure the seats certl"ed by
the state convention to the delegation
lieded by Delegate F. M. Stover It
was a clear case of silver against gold,
but the committee decided without the
formality of a ballot and practically
by a unanimous vote, to put the contort
over. This ended the contests for seats
in the convention as far ns the natiornl
committee was concerned. Mr. Hryan
was somewhat suvprls-d at the actio'i
in the Nebraskn ca'3o, having be n
firmly of the oi.i-iori that the fj Id men
It r.d ro show when tl result ws an
nounced he said to a report- r for the
I'r.lter Press: '"Well, we received more
thnn the silver votes of the committee
anyhow and will bo seated by the com
mittee on credentials without question
because we have as chiana right to a
place as the delegation of any statu."

son was more than usually smllins and
complacent when the vote upon the
Michigan contest was announced Michi
gan contest was announced to him.
"You will notice," ho remarked, that
Mr. Campus' motion to sent the silver
delegates received only his. ..own vote
and live more to give the delegates

Thomas, one of the leading silver men

of the national committtee. Whut will
be rone in the convention about the
matter? Mr. Dickinson was asked.
"Oh, that's Immaterial, quite Imma
terial," he replied ns he walked away.
The committee then decided to recom
mend a temporary chairman of the con
vention, and Mr. Clayton, the delegate
from Alabama, nomlnuted for that po
sition Senator John W. Daniel, of Vir
ginia. He spoke briefly In support of
his nomination, urging the committee
to recognize the overwhelming major
ity for free stiver that was known to
exist. At the close of his remurks he
was loudly applauded.
Kx-Lloutennnt Governor Sheehan, of
New York, presented the name of Sen
ator David It. Hill, of that state, set
ting forth his enpal illtles us a presid
ing officer and his merits as a Demo
No other candidates being numed, the
committee proceeded to ballot und Mr.
Hill was chosen by a vote of 27 to 23.
Mr. Hill received the votes of the
committeemen from the following
states and territories: Connecticut,
Delaware, Illinois, Indiana. Inn. Ken
tucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Min
nesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska,
New Hampshire, New Jersey, New
York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania,
Klipde Island. South Dakota. Tennesse,
Texas, Vermont, Washington, West
Virginia. Wisconsin and Alaska 27.
Committeemen from the following
states and territories voted for Senator
Daniel: Alabama. Arkansas, Cali
fornia, Colorado. Florida. Georgia, Ida
ho. Kansas, Maine, Michigan. Montana,
Nevada. North Carolina. North Dakota,
South Carolina, Virginia. Wyoming,
Arizona. New Mexico,, t'tah,
Indian Territory and the 1 list met of
Columbia 23. .
Mr. James Jeffries, the committee
man from Louisiana, was not recorded
ns voting. His support had been ex
pected by the friends of Senator Hill.
After the result of the vote had been
announced, the only exciting incident
of the afternoon occurred.
Mr. Thomas, of Colotado, rose and said
that he had been assigned to the un
pleasant task of notifying the commit
tee In case the senator from New York
was selected as the choice of the ma
jority, that a minority report would be
made and the name of Hon. John W.
Daniel, of Virginia, would be presented
to the convention us a substitute. Mr.
Thomas said:
"The views of the senator from New
York on the currency question are at
variance with those of a majority of
delegates to the new convention. He
stands as the representative of the
eastern gold men. We have been In
formed by the press that these men have
Bent delegations here to Influence the
action of the convention, and state
ments have been made by these men In
the press, and at public meetings,
which they have held In this city, that
they will agree to no compromise, and
will spare no effort to accomplish their
ends We would say to them that the
majority will accept no comnromlsp,
and also will spare no effort to attain
their purpose, which Is to name a man
in accord with their views. They do
not d ?sire to work In secret, but to fight
In the open, and therefore notify tlv
committee that a minority report wi'l
be presented with the Hen. John W.
Daniel named for temporary chairman
of the convention, and they will ask that
that d"liberate body be permitted to se
lect a presiding officer who is In ac
cord with the views vof the majority."
In conclusion Mr. Thomas asked
Chairman Harrlty, in view of the state
ment that had been made, what kind of
reception the silver men might be ex
pected to be accorded If a motion to
substitute the minority for the majority
report was made.
Mr. Harrlty said such a question was
not justified.
Mr. Thomas disclaimed any intention
to reflect in the slightest degree upon
the chairman of the committee.
Ex-Lieutenant Governor Sheehan fol
lowed Mr. Thomas In an impassioned
speech, which evoked applause at In
tervals from the gold mn en the com
mittee. He said: "I recall that four
years ago, sitting In this very room,

Pursuant to the directions of Gover
nor Hastings, .Mine Inspectors William
Stein of Shenandoah. Edward lloderlck
of Scran ton, and Edward lirennan of
Shainokiu. the coiiimlssion ui'jijiificd
to investigate the Twin shaft disaster,
met yebterduy at Pitt-ston nnd began its
labors. Attorney General Henry C. Me
Corinick. of Williamsport, accompanied
by his stenographer, H. M. Hoke, of
Hurrisbiirg, came on to direct the pro
ceedings und advise with the Inspect
ors. The commission secured quarters at
the Eagle hotel and after a short con
sultation, organized by electing In
spector Stein chairman. At this Junc
ture they received word of the coming
of Attorney General MeCormlck and
pending his arrival they refrained
from further action.
While this was going on nt the hotel
the relatives of the entombed men to
gether with the survix lug miners of the
Twin.xvere holding an Impromptu melt
ing ut the shaft. The outcome of this
meeting xvas ucoininit tee consisting of
Michael Kane, P. J. Hughes, John Cur
den. John Williams, James Derrig,
Martin Tig lie and .Michael Lee, which
proceeded to the hotel and conferred
with the Inspectors regarding the man
ner of conducting the Investigation.
At their solicitation the couiinislson
agreed to have the proceedings con
ducted openly and to permit the miner!
to have uli attorney to represent them
If they saw fit.' They gave notice that
they would have an attorney but as yet
have not decided whom they will en
gage. Attorney General McCormick arrived
at 1 o'clock, proceeding direct to the
shaft and telephoning the commission
to meet him there. Half an hour later
the three inspectors arlrved at the shaft
and xent into consultation xvith Mr.
McCormick. The session, which lusted
about twenty minutes, xvas held in the
company's olilcc und was attended only
by the members of the commission.
When the conference xvas over Mr.
McCormick gave out the statement that
they had agreed to first make personal
observations of the mine nnd then take
testimony. He states further that he
would be present throughout the pro
ceedings, in the same capacity as the
Inspector, an officer of the stnte de
partment assigned to secure Informa
tion for the benefit of the common
xvealth. The attorney general returned to the
hotel and the Inspectors went down the
mine, in the party which neeonipunled
them were Mine Inspector McDonald,
Foreman W. tt. Tlmnias, of the Alon
quln; Fire Mosses MeDernmtt and Sic
Cormack. James Langan, son of the
entombed superintendent; Mplrd Hal
berstradt, of the Colliery Engineer: P.
P. Mangan, of the Wilkes-Kurre News
Dealer, und a representative of The
Tribune. Nearly txvo hours xvero spent
inside exploring the xx-orkings thnt are
open and examining Into the precau
tions that have been taken for the pro
tection of the rescuers. The members
of the commisison plied Inspector Mc
Donald and Foreman McMillan xvith all
kinds of questions nnd nosed about In a
manner xxhloh betokened that they
were there on business nnd that they
Intended to transact it fearlessly and
Vpon returning to the surfnee the In
spectors repaired to the Ea:rh hotel
xvhere they again held a conference
xvith the attorney general, after which
the folloxving official statement of the
day's transactions xvas handed The
Tribune reporter by Attorney General
Mine Inspectors Brennan, Bteln and
Roderick convened at the Twin shaft
mine at 2 o'clock p. m. pursuant to the call
of the gox-ernor. Attorney General Me
Cormlck was present and held a consulta
tion xvith the inspector'?. He advised
them to lnx"estlgat thoroughly the causes
of the dlsnsler, and If anyone xvas to
Mnme to fix It where It belonged, nil
proper precautions having he?) used,
hen to deter. nine whether nnx- and whn'
T'ditional legislation could prevent du"h
disasters In the future. The Inspectors
then went Into the mine anl after thpir
return determined to take such leptltnony
na might be volunteered or called for by
them on Thursday, July 9, at nttston, at
10..HI a. m., all henrlntrs to be open to the
piili'lc. The attorney general will be pres
ent at the meetings.
Just where the session of the com
mission xxill be held has not been de
cided Upon but It is likely that they
xvlll be in the council chamber. The
company has not decided as yet wheth
er or not it will lie represented ' by
counsel at the taking of testimony. The
attorney general returned to Harris
burg at 6.30 but wilt be on hand Thurs
day morning.
Today and tomorrow the commission
will busy Itself continuing its personal
Investigation in and about the mine,
studying the ropes and making tours
into the workings. Inncldentally the In
spectors will strive to hit upon Borne
more effective means of reaching the
?ntombed men. Many of the questlr"
yesterdny would tend to show that the
furtherance of the work of rescue is
by no means the least object of their
The miners are perfectly satisfied
xvlwth the. make-up und policy of the
commission and place every reliance up
on the governor Insisting on a thorough
and fearless Investigation. There xvas
pome talk among1 them of suggesting
to the gox-ernor that the commission be
Increased to nine memoes, three In
spectors, threee mining engineers and
three business men, but the proposition
xvns not generally fax'ored, the ma-jo-lty
of them advising that It is best
to let well enough alone.
The theory of the mine officials, con
cerning the rapplngs heard Saturday
night has been proven correct. They
xvere made by one of the rescuers, a
relative of one of the entombed men
for the supposed purp -seof encouraglcg
the rescuers who he thought xvere be
coming disheartened. The mystery xx-as
explained In a rather unexpected way
Sunday night. Foreman Evans xvhlle
passing along a portion of the gungwny
xvhere no one happened to be at work,
heard rapplngs nearly similar to those
xvhich hax-e caused bo much talk during
the past fexv d.iys. Stealing cautiously
behind a large pillar xvhere tWie sounds
seemed to emenato he came upon one
one of the driver boys, Thomas Lee, a
brother of Oxvcn Li e, one of the victims,
itlu itriotii-ly ripping on the face of
the coal with a lti:s;e piece of Iron.
The foreman Immediately sent him
out of the mine and gave Instructions
that he should not be alloxved to enter
again. Another boy xvho xvas suspected
of making the nietaliv raps that on
Sntuday night xvere licit supposed to
hax'e teen tmide by the entombed men
luMilog on the rail, was taken to the
office-and xvhn-'loMely questlonwl-vlr-tually
admitted his guilt by making a
very xxeak denial.
It afterwards came to light that he
c!ld the rapping not to deceive the
rescuers but us un experiment of his
own, it having occurred to him that no
one had thought to attempt to signal
the entombed men by rapping on the
pipe xvhich runs to the pump. He was
discharged but afterwards reinstated,
ns the foreman of the shift became con
vinced that the boy did not mean any
deception. Another relative of one of
the entombed men had to be ordered
out of the mine because of his threats
to set off the gns unless he xvas per
mitted to explore the fall In advance
of the rescue gang. The rescuer are
now talking of Insisting on all of the
relatives of the entombed men being
kept out of the mine as they feel It Is
not safe to xvork with them on account
of their half-frantic condition.
The general relief committee appoint
ed at the public meeting of the citizens
