demnation. Philadelphia. July 17. An Important
conference of "sound money" Demo
cras was held today in the office-of John

Mr. Slngerly stated that he had pro
posed to a prominent Republican that
a deal be effected whereby in the Dem
ocratic districts of the state, the Demo
crats should vote for MvKlnley and In
turn the Republicans support the Dem
ocratic nominees for congress, state
senate and general assembly. Mr. Sln
gerly was of the opinion that such a
deal could be effected within from thir

his opposition to the placing of a "sound
money" Democratic ticket In the Held
because such a step would Jeopardize

There was a general discussion on
mutters appropriate to the conference,
und the following resolution, which was
prepared by Mr. Bullitt, was unani
Resolved, That the platform adopted by
the Chicago convention Is neither honest
nor patriotic und therefore not Demo
cratic. That It differs so radically from
fie pust doctrines of the Democratic
party and particularly from the nutlunul
platform of ISW! and the Pennsylvania
platform of thi year WW, that we cannot
aa honest Democrats accept Its wide de
parture from the true Democratic doc
trine nnd we believe that the highest duty
of true Democrats Is to make every etfurt
to defeat the ticket nominated at Chicago.
That a committee of seven he appointed
of whom the president of this meeting
shall be chairman with Instructions to

throughout the state for the purpose of

cheer as the train moved off.
At Kast Leavenworth and Weston

place and Mr.. Bryan bowed to the
crowd from the rear of the car. At

station platform was packed with
people as the train drew In. They
swarmed around a temporary plat

track on which the train stood, and
shouted enthusiastically as Mr. Bryan
made an address which was frequently
Interrupted by cheers. The train left
the station at 1:05, followed by more

Lincoln. Neb., July 17. Tonight Lin
coln Is delirious. The delirium bejrun
when the train bearing the nominee wa3
sighted-by the thousands gathetA'. In
and about the railway station. How
many thousands were there It would be
difficult to estimate. Men, women and
children with tin horns, which they blew
lustily, steam calliopes whistled, can
non, firecrackers and everything' else
that could be conveniently handled
helped turn the vicinity of the station
into a pandemonium. As Mr. and Mrs.
Bryan, with the Lincoln contingent that
had gone to meet them, stepped from
the train u mighty howl went up from
the crowd and then began the din of
shouts, grunts, whistles and howls, con
tinued with a persistence thaf showed
a keen enjoyment on the part of the
crowd. Mr. und Mrs. Bryan, their chil
dren and the others with them man
aged to get through the assembled
musses and were placed In carriages.
Mayor Uraham and a reception com
mittee hud charge of the arrangements
and under their direction their nomi
nee's party were conveyed to the Bryan
residence. No. 1625 D street, where
neighbors and friends were waiting1 to
give them hearty welcome.
At 8:30 o'clock Mr. Bryan went to the
Lincoln hotel In a carrtuge to take his
place In the parade. Mrs. Bryan and a
number of friend's proceeding directly
to the legislative building. It had be
gun to rain by this time, but the ardor
of the people was not diminished, and
when Mr. Bryan drove up to the hotel
he was greited with a repetition u-f the
delirious enthuslusm, expressed by lung
power and by the Instruments of tor
ture, that he had encountered on his
arrival at the railway station. Then
the procession was started for the state
A platoon of police led the parade.
First came P. A. Miller, chief marshal
and his sta'.f, Including a number of
army and naval guard officers, fol
lowed by the second regiment band and
the Lincoln Light Infantry. Mr. Bryan
came next, and after him Company D,
of the First regiment, N. N. !., state,
county end city officials followed In
turn and the rest of the procession was
made up of civic organizations of every
character, Including traveling men and
relief societies. The Bryan home guards
bore llambeaus and discharged rockets
while many of the other paraders also
indulged In pyrotcnchnlc display. A
brass band headed nearly every organi
zation and there was no lack of musical
Packed In the rain outside the state
house were people by the thousands.
They cared nothing for the wet under
foot and the wet overhead, and stood
In the mud patiently as If It had been
the most propitious weather. Their
enthusiasm was something wonderful.
Nearly every young man and young
woman was provided with a tin horn
and they spared not their lungs. But
the cheers d; owned out all other at
tempts at expressing feeling. When
Mr. Bryan was introduced the shout
that went u: was a mighty one and It
was restated over and over. A tem
porary platform had teen erected at
the corner of the building and from this

Mrs. Bryan standing in the rotunda of
the stnte house received a vast con
course of people.

TROOPS CHARGED I'PON THE MOB
Strikers Are Reinforced by Thous

and Nou-Union Mcn-.V Soldier and
Polireinnn Are Beaten Iuto Insen
sibility. Cleveland, July 17. The fiercest fight
since the strike of the Brown Hoisting
workers began.oecurred this evening.
The militia kept the crowd back while
the non-union men were taken from the
shops, but the mob Increased until It
numbered many thousands and extend
ed over a territory of fifteen squares.
Jeers, stones and clubs drew a charge
from the militia on the crowd. Many
on both sides were wounded. Just how
many strikers were hurt Is uncertain,
but two men were so severely stabbed
with bayonets that they could not get
away, arc lylntr at the St. Clair hospital.
Thos. McGrcavy and James Oarety.
All day there had been frequent clashes
between the mob at the Brown Hoisting
works, the police and mlilitia. The
members of the mob were In u vicious
mood, and whenever a lone soldier or
policeman could be reached, violence
was attempted. Tne troops from two
o'clock this afternoon were constantly
under arms and had great difficulty In
clearing the streets, two charges being
necessary. In which bayonets were
freely used. But us soon as a chaige
was made, the mob, which early in
the afternoon numbered 5,000, would
How back against the lino of steel like
a wave of the sea und again begin to
hoot and throw stones.
SECOND CHARGE MADE.
When the workmen had been tuken
away and the troops were returning to
their quarters at the works', another
vengeful rally was made upon Com
puny F. Again a charge was mude and
cold steel wan driven home so that
many of the Hotel's hud to bo helped
away. At this time some one pent In
a general alarm to the police station
and every patrol wagon was soon dash
ing through the streets causing the
wildest rumors among thousands on
their way home from work.
There was no need of the police re
Infi rn'tneots and the crowd, which had
been swelled to 16,000 began to melt
away. It looked us If the trouble was
ended, but at seven o'clock an assault
was made on a soldier who was passing
along Wilson avenue. He fought des
perately as did also a poilcuinan who
hurtled to his aid. A squad of troops
came to their rescue but not before the
two had beea l.val.m It) to Insensibility.
Again the patrol wagons rushed to the
scene and had all they could do to force
a passage through the angry mob.
Everything Is now in readiness to re
pel an outbreak which la expected dur
ing the night.
There were many women in the mob
and they were apparently, the most
bitter and as they refused to move
some of them are Injured by bayonet
thrusts. The situation at midnight Is
very ominous and the streets about the
vicinity of the works are being
patrolled by soldiers and police.
Thirteen Letters Made Public by the
State Depar ment The First
Washington. Jul 17. The efforts of
the United States and Great Britain to
agree upon a general arbitration for
the settlement of all the controversies
through the establishment of a per
manent tribunal, as well as the pro
gress of diplomatic negotiations to
wards solving the Vcnezulean problem
ate set forth In thirteen communications
made public by the state department
tonight. While they constitute the
first uuthorltatlve dlsclot-ures upon
these great a.uestlous since President
Cleveland's famous Chiit-tmna-tlde
message to congress, It will be found
that the previous reports if th- United
Press of the negotiations between the
two governments Lav.1 accurately out
lined the couise of events.
Little substantial progress towards a
general arbitration treaty Is disclosed
by the documents. An outline In part
of the proposed p:ocee4ure Is laid down
end the views of te two governments
are so explicit aly sai ej that future dis
cussion may be confined towards nar
rowing the few divergent:! s of method.
The further fact Is made apparent
that the United Stu'.es has not te'axed
Its vigilance In demanding a Just set
tlement of the Venessulean boundary
question and has rejected the Brltsh
proposols for arbitrating that dispute
under terms involvlrg the surrender of
any part of Venezuelus claims.

DEMOCRATS AIM TO
DEFEAT MR. BRYAN
The Administration Said to Have As
sured Help for Hanna.
PRESIDENT MAY WRITE A LETTER
Republican Managers Said to Have
llecu Told Not to Give Themselves
Concern Over the Course of the
(old DemocratsTheir Efforts
Will Be Directed Toward Election
Cleveland, O., July 17. Tt Is very evi
dent that there will be no Independent
Democratic gold ticket In the Held this
fall, but the support of the gold wing
of the Democratic party will be thrown
to the Republican ticket, and the com
bined efforts of that strong wing of the
Democratic party will be thown to aid
the election of Major McKlnley. So
announced a gentleman toduy, who is
too closely allied to the administration
at Washington to permit his name to
be made public. When asked for the
reason for this statement he said:
"Within the past three days Chairman
Hanna, or the Republican National
Committee, has received assurances di
rect from the Washington administra
tion that Mr. Hanna need give himself
no concern over the course of the gold
Democrats In the pending campaign."
The Information stated that the course
of the factions of the party had been
determined and that the Eastern Dem
ocrats would not put up a ticket, and
what Is more, the most of them would
use every means within their power to
secure the election or the Republican
ticket. This course of action was said
to have been approved by no less a
personage than the President himself.
WHAT THE PRESIDENT MAY DO.
The gentleman further announced
that he would not be geatly surprised
If in the course of the campaign Presi
dent Cleveland would give out a public
letter advising sound money Democrats
to support McKlnley. The rumor that
Mr. Hanna had received such assur
ances was the talk of the day in politi
cal circles here today, and not a doubt
was expressed but that it is true, be
cause of the many facts which bear It
In the first place there has been a
general uprising among federal office
holders against the ticket as named at
Chicago. Most of the dissenters have
gone to the extent of a direct bolt of
the ticket and have boldly announced
that they will support Major McKlnley.
They have not waited to see whether
eastern Democrats would put & ticket
Into the field. They were supposed to
have known that this contingency
would not arise. They were In too close
touch with the administration to have
committed the error of believing that
there would be a chance for them to
vote the Democratic ticket and at the
same time not vote for Bryan. The
position of the administration had been
communicated to them and they knew
what to expect.
NATIONAL COMMITTEE ACTION.
The National Republican executive
committee this morning appointed Per
ry S. Heath, of Cincinnati, press and
literary agent, and appointed a com
mittee, consisting of Hanna, Durbln,
of Indiana; Dawes, of Illinois; Payne,
of Wisconsin, and Heath, to select of
fices for the committee In Chicago and
New York. This committee will be in
Chicago Monday, and provide head
quarters for that city first.
It Is reported that the committee will
make every possible effort to induce
Mr. McKlnley to make a trip through
the west, or at least deliver some
speeches in that section of the country.
Some of the western committeemen
are strongly In favor of having the
campaign opened in Omaha or Lincoln,
