Chicago, July 7. The national Dem
ocratic convention was called to order
by Chairman Harrity at 1 o'clock. Mr.
Harrity asked that all present should
arise and remain so while prayer was
offered by Rev. Ernest M. Stires, rector
of Orace Episcopal church, Chicago, as

while we plead for ourselves, we are
mindful of the sorrows of others. May

Upon the conclusion of the invoca

liberate tones, said: "Gentlemen of the
convention, by the direction of the

Then there was an outbreuk of ap
plause which lasted for two minutes.
A delegate from Minnesota got up to
make a motion and the chairman In

band started up amidst laughter: "I

Alabama, arose, advanced to the plat
form, and said:

THE MINORITY REPORT.
To the Democratic National Convention:
The undersigned members of the Dem
ocratic national committee respectfully
recommend that the name of Hon. John
W. Daniel, of Virginia, be substituted In
the committee report for that of the Hon.
David B. Hill, of New York, and that the
Hon. John W. Daniel be chosen tempo

As Mr. Clayton concluded by demand
ing the call of the states and a roll call,
cheer and cries of "call the roll" were
raised. Mr. C. 8. Thomas, of Colorado,
seconded the report.
V HARRITY ON HIS DIGNITY.
Again cries of "roll call" were raised,
and Mr. Harrity said: "It may as well
be understood, gentlemen, that as long
aa the present occupant In In the chair,
the proceedings will be conducted In
regular, orderly manner."
This announcement was received with
Mr. Allen McDermott. of New Jersey,
was then recognized to speak in support
of the majority report. Mr. McDermott
told of the sterling Democracy of New
Jersey and gave praise to Senator Hill,
the man who had given to the party
the slogan "I am a Democat." Faint
cheering only greeted Senator Hill's fa
mous battle cry. Mr. McDermott con
tinued telling about the rights of the
minority. He warned the sliver men
that they were departing from the prin
ciples of the party In overruling the na
tional committee. We of the north, he
said, " want to support the ticket that
you will select. If you haw the
strength of giants do not expend It in
bitterness, but reserve It for the day
when you will need It In November."
He asked the majority not to tuke a
course offensive to the minority and
quoted "thy gentleness will make thee
Ex-Governor Waller, of Conn., was
recognized when Mr. McDermott xat
down. His resonant voice rang out
clear and strong and washeard in every
part of the hull. Tho names of Hill and
Daniel, he said should be joined to
gether and sumo of the gentlemen took
him at his word and gave a cheer for
both. Mr. Waller suggested that Hill
should be elected temporary chairman,
and Daniel permanent chairman.
JIR. WALLER'S APPEAL.
If there were other arrangements
made he? hoped they would be wiped out
ami the chivalrous r.nd courageous
thing done at the opening of the con
vention. He had been told by Hepubll-
JOUN W. DAKIKU
can friends in coming to Chicago that
the gold men Would receive no cour
tesy, but he knew this was not so,
stand you beating us with votes, we can
stand you beating um w ith votes, butcan
stand any man you nominate, provid
ing he Is an honest man. We are In this
convention to stay." (Cheering.) As
he declared with uplifted hand "we are
here to stay," the convention cheered
and responded still more enthusiastic
ally with cheers and laughter and when
he added: "I am going to be here until
the last man has voted, and I will stay
with the Janitor and see him out," the
outburst of applause was uproarious.
Continuing, Governor Waller said he
supposed that the majority outnumber
ed the minority two to one. They In
tended to turn down Hill in ingomity. It
would be considered a personal matter
(cries of "no") If Hill were selected, he
would make a speech that would be
full of sound Democracy. You will
understand that he represented both
sides. If Hill were refused the right
to make his speech from the platform
he would make It from the floor, and
It would go to the country the same.
"Are you going to do that?" he asked
and a chorus of "yes" went up.
"Gentlemen, you are going to do It
are you ?" cried the speaker, and again
the affirmative shout went up.
He added, "turn down David B. Hill
and I will tell you what we will do to
my southern friends. We will tight you
here and elsewhere. We will tight you
until you are sorry for your Indiscretion
of this day."
GREETED WITH HISSES.
An outbreak of hisses followed by
cheers and hisses greeted this state
ment. All through the latter part of Mr.
Waller's speech attempts were made to
cry him Uo.wn, and he only responded
by repeating that he would
stay on the platform all day to
make himself heard. He concluded
with a short upieul for party unity,
and took his seat amid cheering from
the Connecticut delegation.
Mr. Charles S. Thonius, of Colorado,
seconded the motion of Mr. Cl.iytou
that his tuiiarks were In sympathy
with the feelings of u large part of the
audience, was shown ny the frequent
applause which punctuated his speech.
He maintained that It wits perfectly
seemly to overrule the national com
mittee and held that if the committee
were properly constituted, It would
show a majority the other way. 'J he
men who had worked In the Democratic
party, as he had, for twenty-five years,
without securing any r. n ewoiu, wen
becoming Indifferent to what others In
the party thought. As for David 15.
Hill, he wanted to repuulur the sug
gestion that his defeat to? the tempor
ary chairmanship would mean Igno
miny and disgrace for him.
That was not so, that he himself had
stood by Hill four years ago when he
did not have the support of his ntw
found friends. (Cheers. Mr. Thomas
concluded with an argument that the
adoption of the minority report xvns nrt

WALTER RECITES liIL'TORY.
Hon. Charles E. Walter, of Alabama,
next took the platform in support of
minority report. He disclaimed any
Intention by the action the were about
to take to reflect upon their eastern
friends. They had given New Yoik
every Democratic nomination for the
last 25 years and western mid southern
Democrats had stood by them. Why.
he asked, could not the eastern men do
as they did In the west when they had
lost a campaign give the victors Ihe
entire management of the party organ
ization? He closed by saying he and
his friends thought they were entitled
to the nomination and that the commit
tee ought to have given It to them.
H. F. Harpey, of California, told the
convention in seconding the motion to
adopt the minority report that the
Democratic party had been loosing
faith In its adherence because It hdl
failed to keep faith with the voters by
adhering to the platform. (CfneiD.

The Bland Boom Is Still Ahead ol
M'LEAN'S CANDIDACY IS AMUSING
lie Is aa Energetic Canvasser ia His
Owa Interest and Talks with the
Dclegates-Situation Is Mixed.
Bland's Pension Record Is Ammu
nition for His Enemies.
Chicago, July 7. The McLean boom
has not caught up with the Bland
boom, or anywhere ncaf It, but that Is
not because Mr. McLean has left any
stone unturned which ht- could move
with his own hands. A more energetld
canvasser In his own Interest it would
be hard to find. His knowledge that he
can have the vice presidential nomina
tion for the asking has not diverted his
appetite for the presidency, but merely
whetted It to a keener edge. He be
lieves that the prize lies within his
reach, especially since Ihe other candi
dates have stirred up so much bad blond
His nmthods are simple. He wanted
Ohio to present his name, and he said
so. When ui;y delegate seemed to have
any other preference, McLean would
send for him In person and huve a lit
tle friendly talk in private. One by one.
he won them over till he felt strong
enough to urge his friends to put the
question to a vote In the delegation.
The result wus the adoption of a res
olution to present his name ami sup
port him. One of the Ohio delegates
said in speaking of this vote:
'I was not for McLean at first, but I
am -now. I like a man who knows what
he wants and asks for it. He told me
he wanted the nomination, he wanted
the Ohio endorsement, and he wanted
my vote. He didn't fidle-faddle about
asking for It, and I gave it to him."
THE WESTERN PLAN.
No doubt the votes of others were
won by the use of similar means. There
is nothing so captivating to the western
taste as a pluln statement of what a
One of the comical features of the
movement In favor of McLean In such
an assemblage cs this is that although
as an editor and publisher, he takes
up the cause of free silver and works
It for political reasons, he Is, socially
and In the broader business sense,
firmly fixed in the opposing camp. It
can easily be Imagined what a row his
nomination iwould cause in the Pupulls
tlc Democracy when the news is spread
abroad that he is a plunger In the stock
market, keeping a private wore hot
between his office in Washington and
the New York office of ..brokers who at
tend to his business in the purlieus of
hateful Wall street.
He Is a millionaire, and, in the sense
the Populists understand It, a monopo
list. To the larger part of the crowd
here the possession of more property
than a farm and a pair of mules is a
crime; and the idea of these men com
pelled to turn and help such a man Into
the presidency presents an absurd pos
sibility, and pretends a campaign of
explanations and excuses.
Senator Lindsay, of Kentucky, con-
alders the situation decidedly mixed as
to candidates, though not at all In doubt
as to the radical character of the plat
form. The trend, he thinks, is rather
towards the selection of a conservative
man for a candidate for president than
in the opposite direction. As to Ken
tucky's vote after she ceases supporting
Blackburn, he thinks It will probably
be divided between Bland and Steven
son; and of all the compromise candi
dates suggested, Stevenson seems the
strongest. The complaint of the radi
cals Is that the vice president does not
talk enough, on the theory that a man
who is sincerely for free silver coinage
at 16 to 1 will muke his choice heard
for It everywhere.
STEVENSON AND SILVER.
The general understanding is, how
ever, that Stevenson would sign a free
coinage bill If It came to him, while he
might not actively engage in pushing
Its passage by executive pressure. His
approval would be based upon his nat
ural Inclination towards the free-coinage
Idea, and also upon the notion that
when a bill Is passed by congress, only
some very masterful reason should In
terfere with its becoming law.
Bland's pension record seems to be
giving his enemies a lot of ammunition
ad keeping his friends busy in his de
fence. He voted against the dependent
pension bill, and his attitude on private
pension legislation would also dampen
the ardor not only of actual pensioners,
but of that vast army who by private
bill, or easy interpretation of existing
law. hope to see their names some time
on the pension roll. Whether the Demo
cratic party can afford to begin a cam
paign In the West with an opportunity
for this antagonism Is a much debated
point among the delegates.
There Is no delegation more complete
ly under one man's thumb than that of
South Carolina. Mr. Tillman Is chair
manof the delegation, Its representa
tives onthe committee on resolutions,
and national committeeman from South
GIVES SILVER THE MAJORITY.
Michigan Delegation Will Vote Ac
cording to I' nit ! ule.
Chicago, July 8. The committee on
credentials at one o'clock this morning
by a vote of 27 to 16 recommended the
seating of the contesting delegates,
four-at-large and two In the Fourth
and Ninth districts, each from the state
of Michigan. The unit rule Is to pre
vail In the Michigan delegation, and
this action, If confirmed by the conven
tion, will throw the solid vote of Michi
gan Into the silver column and it gives
the silver men the majority of the dele
gation. The committee also recommended
that the territories and the District of
Columbia be entitled to six votes.

crew was defeated today In the trial
heat of the grand challenge cup race by

quarters. Leander's time was seven

puts Yale out of the race. Yale went oft
badly, their first four strokes being
very scratchy and Irregular. The boats
were timed at the Fawley court boat
house as having covered the course to
that point In 3.24. Leander was a yard
In front and began to gain fast, leading
by a quarter of a. length at the three
quarter mile post. Yale was beginning
to get very short. The Leander was
clear of Yale at Qrosvenor and was row
ing well. Yale also preserved her form,
rowing at a 38 stroke. At the Istheman
Yale . was very much exhausted, and
nearly two lengths behind. Leander
spurted at the finish. Leander rowed
much longer than the Yale men, who,
just at the finish, went all to pieces,
but had rowed a fine race all the way.
The Leander crew appeared perfect
ly fresh at the end of the race, and
rowed at a smart stroke some distance

troubled over the vaportngs over the
self constituted champion. He says

MOTHER AND CHILDMURDERED.
California Wouiun and Her Daughter
Killed by Lead and Hteel.
Sunta Barbara, Cal., July 7. Mrs. K.
R. Richardson, aged 65, and her 17-year-old
daughter Ethel were murdered late
on Sunday nlglit. There Is no clew to
tho murderer, but suspicion points to
Scott Richardson, the step-son of Mis.
Richardson, who had made frequent
threats to kill her. The only other theory
suggested Is that the murders were com'
mltted by a tramp.
A workman discovered the body of the
daughter in a vacant held near the Rich
ardson hoiiHO. Her throat had been cut
and there were several wounds In the back
of her head. A trail of blood was found
leading from the front door of Mrs. Rich'
ardxon's bedroom. Near the herd lay the
body of Mrs. Richardson, face down
ward. In a pool of blood. A bullet hole in
the head of the bed and another In the
window casing told of her efforts to es
cape the pistol of her assailant. Below
the woman s left eye was a bullet hole,
and there aws another through the left
hand. About the face and forehead there
were several deep gashes, and the back of
her head had been beaten by a stick load'
