J. L. Price: attorney general, John M.

l.awson K. Ihner.son; state treasurer,
Isaac A. Cameron: member of board o
public works, AV. (.!. Johnson.
The convention was in session from
10.10 to 1.10, breaking the Ohio record
by completing its work in three hours.
The Intense heat was prostrating, and
Chairman llanna not. only cut short his
own speech, bill also those of others,
and then dispatched business with the
utmost speed.
In those three hours the convention
nominated a full slate ticket, adopted
lis declaration of principles, endorsed
Joseph I?. Foraker as the Kcpuhliciin
candidate for re-election as I'nltcd
States senator, completed the party or
ganization for the campaign anil trans
acted other business. Of th'o seven
nominations, only three were new men
and one of these. Nlppert, for lieuten
ant coventor, was nominated without
opposition, after Meutonuiit (iovornor
Caldwell had declined renominatlon.
Xash, Sheets. Cameron and Johnson
were renominated for second terms
without opposition. There Mere free-for-all
contests for the nominations for
Supreme bulge and clerk of the Su
preme court.
It had been currently reported that
Crew and Crltchlield were on the Han
na slate for these two nominations, but
Senator Hanna vigorously denied tak
ing any part whatever in the contests
lor these two places. The vote showed
that Price and Knierson had formed a
combination that worked successfully
for both of them. Judge Trice, of l,liui,
has been on the common pleas and cir
cuit benches, and Kincrson has been
prominent in polities in Kaslern Ohio
for years.
Nippert'a Nomination.
Tito nomination that caused the
most comment was that of Nlppert In
place of Lieutenant Governor Cald
well, the latter being the only one
who was elected with Governor Nash
two years ago, that was not renomi
nated for a second term. The state
nntl-salnon league caused Caldwell to
run several thousand behind his
ticket in 1S!W, and had vigorously op
posed his nomination. There were
frequent calls for Caldwell in the con
vention, but ho could not be Induced
to take the platform. While the dele
gates were calling for Caldwell, Chair
man llanna made Caldwell a member
of the committee to escort Governor
Nash to tho hall to deliver Ills speech
of acceptance, and while this com
mittee was out Chairman Hanna
promptly called up the next order of
business and State Senator Nipport
was nominated. Nlppert has been
principal of schools in Cincinnati and

Columbus, Juno 25. The report of
tho resolutions committee of tho Re
publican stato convention, which was
adopted unanimously by tho conven
tion as the platform oC tho party in
Ohio, reafllrins tho Philadelphia plat
form, pledges undivided support to iho
Republican party, tho iitugulllecnt
achievements of which, it Is said,
have added luslro to American his
tory, and under tho administration or
which the United mates has becnnio
a world power, Industry has revived,
plenty has succeeded want and our
export trade leads tho world.
Tho gold standard Is specifically In
dorscd. Further strengthening of the
navy, legislation looking to tho res
toratloti of tho merchant murine, tho
speedy construction of nn American
ship canal across tho Isthmus are de
clared to bo Imperative needs.
In regard to combinations of capi
ta the platform says:
"Wo recognize tho right of both
labor and capltul to combine when
such combinations are wisely admin
istered for the general good, but com
binations which create monopolies to
control prices or limit production ara
an evil which must bo mot by effec
tive legislation vigorously enforced."
Congress Is asked to renew the hu
mane and reasonable laws and treat
ies for the continued protection of
American labor. That plank hns par
ticular reference to the expiration ot
the Geary act.
A ringing tribute Is paid to the sol
diers and sailors of the United States.
Attempts to deprive any citizen of his
right to vote under the constitution Is
denounced, nnd tho demand Is made
that representation In congress and In
the electoral college shall be based on
the actual voting population, propor
tionate reduction being made for any
state In which the right of suffrage
shall bo denied, except for crime.
Lynching Is denounced in unmeas
ured terms.
Victory for tho American arms In tbft
war with Spain, it Is asserted, lijw
brought the blessing of liberty to mill
ions of human beings. Tho principle
that congress hns power to govern the
new possessions according to the needs
of their people, and in tho Interests of
the people of tho United States, is de
clared to have been upheld by the Su
preme court.
President JIcKlnley Is lauded for tho
"prudent and successful management
of American Interests in China."
It Is declared that the nation's pledge
to Cuba Is being faithfully kept, insur
ing freedom nnd Independence to her
people, who, it is ndded, are today en

upon "wise and conservative action in
favor of a stable government."
Porto Itieo, it is sold, Is flourishing
beyond nil former experience!: Ha
waii's entrance into full territorial
relations with the United States gov

marvellous progress known In the his
tory of those islands. In tho Philip

Whitehall, X. .' . June 23. The Rev.
Joseph Cook of Ticondcroga, a prom
inent historical writer and lecturer,
died last night of Hriglit's disease.
Tile Hev. Joseph Cook attracted wide
attention by his so-called Monday lec
tures, which ho delivered IlrsL in Bos
ton and then in other cities, from 1S77
to 1SSS. These lectures, which covered
a wide range of subjects, from biology
to "current religious perils," "con
science" or "socialism," owed their
success to tho special appeal which the
speaker's methods made to the popu
lar Imagination. They have been col
lected and published In book form, In
eleven volumes, numerous editions of
which have appeared In England.
Joseph Cook was born in Tlcouder
oga, N. T., Jan. 2fi. ISI1S. lp was tho
son of a. farmer, but he exhibited a
passion for reading from his boyhood.
Once, when he was fi years of ago. he
attended an auction of a. district school
library anil bought every book of merit
in Hie collection. As a reward of good
scholarship he was offered his choice
hot ween a -watch and a. cyclopaedia,
and be chose the latter, lie entered
Vale lu 1S.1S, but, his health becoming
impaired, he left early in ISfil. Two
years later, ho entered Harvard as a
'junior anil was graduated in 1S6.", not
only receiving high honors but carry
ins off several prizes. Mr. Cook then
studied three years at Andover sem
inary adding a fourth year for special
study of advanced religious and philo
sophical thought. A license to preach
was granted to him, but he declined all
invitations to any settlement as pastor.
He preached in Andover during ISfiS
1S70. and was acting pastor in Lynn,
Mass., in 1S70-IS71. Ho then went to
Kurope and studied at Halle, l,olpsie,
Merlin and Heidelberg; then travelled
in Italy, Kgypt. Creece, Turkey and
northern 'Africa. Iteturnlng to the
United Stales near the close of 1S7.1, be
became a lecturer on the relations of
religion, science and current reform.
It was at this period that his lectures,
which he delivered at Treniont Tem
ple, Hoston, became widely known as
"Huston Monday Lectures." Although
delivered at noonday, they drew audi
ences to tho full capacity of the hull,
which seats :!,nno. The lectures were
reported in many newspapers.
During the winter of 1R7S-1S70 he con
ducted a Hoston Monday-noon lecture
ship and a New York Thursday-evening
lectureship, besides tilling a large
number of engagements. His discours
es were never taken seriously from the,
viewpoint of sclontilli! research or
depth of analysis, but he had a re
markablo facility for handling lan
guage, and his topics wera always
chosen with an eye to popular Interest.
His lectures been likened to the
reading matter iu a certain class of
enterprising American newspapers. Ho
had a deep Insight Into tho human na
ture of his audiences. He knew how
to hold their attention and to make
them come again. It was this quality
which made his lectures so famous
that lu ISS0 he received an Invitation
from abroad which resulted In his cele
brated lecturing tout around the
lie made lit." public- appearances In
