The attendance of visitors has been ap

PROTEST FROM LEACH.

Philadelphia, July 19.-Frank Will
Ins Leach, former chairman of the Re
publican state executive coinniltteee,
and recently a candidate against Dep
uty Attorney tieueral John P. Ulkln to
succeed Senator (Juuy for the chairman
of the general state committee, has
written to Ids successor, ex-Speaker
Henry K. Hover, protesting against the
manner of Mr. Klkin's election as state
chairman and asking .Mr. Uoyer to call
a meeting of the state committee to
elect Mr. Klkln. In conclusion Mr.
Leach says: "Permit me to add. In con
clusion, that I am not a candidate for
the position in question, and that I
would not accept a unanimous election.
Although two-thirds of the delegates to
the late state coin em ion were opposed
to the election of Mr4 Flkin to the
chairmanship. I have no doubt (lie state
lommiltee will be happy to five him a
unanimous vote if culled together for
this put pose. I certainly shall be
pleased to vote for him. I um not ob

but to the manner of It."
Mr.. Leach submits with Lis leltei an
opinion by John . Johnson, the emi
nent lawyer of this city, that the state
chairman should tie selected by the state
committee. Mr. Johnson's opinion fol
lows: "I am uu vised that the Republi

Advance Guard of the SL Louis Conven
tion Is on the Ground Bryan
Popular with Delegates.
St. Louts. July 19. The situation to
night Is Bryan and anti-Bryan, or more
strictly speaking, liryan against some
member of the Populist party yet to be
named. Not more than :100 of the I.3O0
delegates to the Populist convention
have arrived and these are Individual
members who constitute the advance
guard of a number of delegates from
the south and west. It Is yet too early
to predict with reasonable certainty
what decision the convention may
reach, but from the surface indications
today It would appeur that the senti
ment for Hryait will be very strong, if,
indeed, his friends be not In a majority
when the roll is culled.
It is a curious fact that some of the
southern Populists have been converted
from free traders to extreme protec
tionists through their alillllutloiis of the
late years with the Republicans. While
some of the men place silver ubove the
nutiouul Issue, there are others unwill
ing to give their support to a tariff re
former, but say as between two, they
would prefer McKinley. Generally
speaking, however, "Cyclone" Davis,
the Texas member of the national com
mittee, says there are only live states
in the union that the Democrats can
carry without the aid of the Populists,
and they are Louisiana, Arkansas. Mis
sissippi, Florida and South Carolina.
There wus talk today of a bolt If
ftiyan be nominuted. They do not hesi
tate to say, however, thut a bolt would
lose lo the sllvetites the electoral votes
of Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabuma, und
Florula. und certainly result iu the elec
tion of McKinley. There is but one
thing the anti-Bryan men fear, that is
a possibility that some one may make
a ringing speech, full of allusions to the
boy orator of the Platte and his loin?
devotion to silver, thut muy sweep the
convention oil' It's feet and bring about
his nomination In a whirlwind of en
thusiasm even us Kryan himself suc
ceeded in doing nt Chicago, less than a
fortnight ago. In such event, the list
of malcontents might be so reduced us
to make a bolt impossible, but this Is
not expected. Inquiries among the Ala
buma, Georgia, Tennessee und Texas
delegations tonight discloses the fact
that under no circumstances will they
accept llryuu und Sew all us the head
of Ihe ticket. They go so far as to say
thut if the convention either endorses
or noiniuutes Bryau and Sewall, they
w ill bolt uud hold another convention.
They will adopt the Omaha platform
und will nominate men for president

Indianapolis, Ind., July 19. The In

meeting lust night which was presided
over by Governor Matthews. There
wan about 2,000 people In. the audience
and Governor Matthews was given an
ovation when he wuh introduced by
Chairman, Holt, of the State Central
committee. Holt has been a gold Dem
ocrat, but declared from the platform
that they were all Democrats and
bowed to the majority. Governor Mat
thews said In part:
"I assure you there la no room for
feelings of regret, discontent or dls
aotisfuotton. The platform adopted
and the ticket selected are both good

Speaking of the character ot the con
vention he said:
"It was not a gathering of anarchists,
traitors repudlators or sectlonallsts, as
our Republican friends In the freusy of
fear proclaim, but a coming together of
patriots, alarmed for the welfare of
their country; of honest, earnest men.
LUima.ted by a greaX cause aiul of
AmeriuHJi citizens and their rights and
liberties, determined to maintain them.
It is this year supremely the people's
light, their struggle against the most
miserable and debasing enslavement

"In spite of the nearly solid opposi
tion of the metropolitan press of the en
tire country, notwlthstandidng the un
grateful crusade against it by certain
hired men, professing to be Democrats,
aye, even claiming to be Democratic
leaders, but In truth Hessians hi the
camp; In spite ef the crowds of alarm
ists, or sordid appeals, of avarice and
greed, the great country has grown and
will continue to grow."
Senator Turple, and W. R. Meyers,
ex-secretary of state, also spoke. The
lutter was on Of the leaders of the gold
faction. He had, he explained, changed
his vtews to agree with the majority.
In the course of his speech he declared
that they would send Matthews to the

THE VENEZUELAN; CONTROVERSY.
A Sensation in the Dispute Will Be
Due is a Duy or Two.
Washington. July 19. Something of a
sensation In the Venesuelan dispute Is
expected in a day or two, possibly to
morrow, when a retort to the Pollock
argument which prefaced the British
blue book Is delivered to the commis
slon and made public simultaneous In
this country and England. Up to this
time the agents of the Caracas govern
inent have contented themselves with
piling up evidence before the Venezue
lan commission and pointing out the
numerous Inconsistencies and false de
ductlons In the British caBe, but since
the distinguished Boston lawyer, James
J. Storrow, has become associated with
