The tally In Audllnrlttiu Kndeavor
this evening was In many respects tho
most remarkable gathering of the con
vention. Other meetings and iiiogninunes were
cancelled to make room for the main
speakers of tho convention Holt. U. S.
Capen. of Huston, and llev. Chatles 51.
Sheldon, of Topeka. The Immense audi
torium, with a Heating capacity of over
r..ono, win packed, and the ushers were
forced to close and bar the doors In
the faces of the clamorous crowd that
was unable to gain admission.
At the conclusion of Ills address,
Clarence K. lCherinaii, of Pennsylvania,
the newly elected financial secretary,
was Intioduced. In view of his resig
nation us prcMldeiit of the Pennsylvania
union, the Pennsylvania delegates hail
scattered the following around the hall,
with the request that when he was In
tioduced everybody should llse nnd re
cite it, which was done: "Pennsylva
nia's loss, I'nlted societies' gain. We
plodgo our heaity support to the new
Held secretin y."
Mr. Kberman was taken completely
by sui-prlco, ns was also Ptesldent
Clark, who embraced him with teals In
llev. Sir. Sheldon was Introduced, nnd
he read his addicss on "Its Dally
Papers," from manuscript, lie, too.
was enthusiastically received, lie spoke
of the great institution of newspapers
and how bo would run them, In part
Rov. Sheldon's Address.
The llev. Charles M. Sheldon, D. D
of 'I'opeka, Kan., spoke of "Tho Dally
Paper of the L'fith Century."
He did not assume, be said, that
there were no good dally papers. Nei
ther did be assume that the jiress was
hostile suggestions which simply had
for their object the possible bettering
of journalism: but be did assume that
there was a very large and undevel
oped Held open 'to Ihe daily press which
was not at present cultivated.
A marked feature of the paper
should be. he said, prohibition, and an
other feature the prominence given to
the work done by Christian mission
aries. The paper should also tako
very large account of the social move
ments of the times. The standing
question hi Its business and editorial
management should be "What Is the
best thing for the best Interest of
the city'.' What will promote the wel
fare and happiness and morality of
the entire family?" He asserted that
goodness Is news, and could be made
to be intensely Interesting news. An
other large cause that the dally
should champion is the question ot
the Sunday that America, ought to
have. Cnsb without character, Iipj
said, wiii poverty; and tho nation
would not have character unless It
preserved a Christian Sabbath. Tho
commercial Interests of this nepublle,
be said, were playing to the tremen
dous Interests at stake In the matter
of character and moral growth of tho
people; and the dally paper which ac
knowledged this fact and made It
prominent would be the paper that
should hold the place of the highest
honor among tho people who love tho
He expresses the hope that In some
way tho Christian Kndcnvor organi
zation would bo the means of estab
lishing such an organ for righteous
ness In more than one great city tn
thl country. The possibilities for
jiuch Journnllsm, he said, were big
with Christian ambition, If the Chris
tian young people would unite their
efforts, they could establish such pap
ers In every largo center of population,
nnd they would prove to be mighty
sources of real power In shaping tho
future destiny ot the Republic.

Hy Excluslie Wire from The Aorlated l're".
Columbus, O., July S. Delegates and
visitors are assembling hero today for
the Democratic state con volition,
which will do all Its preliminary work
tomorrow. They aro greatly .disap
pointed because John It. McLciTn, ot
Cincinnati, and Mayor Tom L. John
son, of Cleveland, who have been most
prominently mentioned for the United
States senatorship. will not be here.
It Is understood that Charles W.
Raker, who was presiding odlcer at
the last Democratic Ohio convention,
will be the permanent chairman. Do
is a close friend of McLean and chair
man ot tho Hamilton county delega
tion. Johnson represents wnnt is called
the "radical reform" element nmong
platform makers and McLean repre
.cuts the conservative clement. Tho
Indications today were that the con
servative element would control the
lonunlttee on resolutions and adopt
what Is known as the Cincinnati plat
form rather than the. Cleveland plat
form. The platforms are so designat
ed because It Is known that two
platforms have already been con
structed, one in Cincinnati mid 'the
other In Cleveland. Drafts of the one
were brought here today by Tempor
ary Chairman Salen nnd others, from
Cleveland, nnd of the other by .liai
son Harmon, Harlan Cleveland and
others from Cincinnati. The former
radically changes the system of taxa
tion and puts the burden of taxation
on tlie corporations, especially tin tho
railways Tills Issue will be tho prin
cipal contention before tho convention.
Platform No Contest,
Because of the absence of Mayor
Johnson, it Is thought that there will
not bo much contest over the plat
form, and there will bo no contests for
nominations except for minor places
on tho state ticket. All concede that
Colonel James Kilbourne, ot Colum
bus, will bo nominated for governor
and that a conference of his friends
tomorrow will select a man for lieu
tenant governor. Xo "slate" lor other
places will bo considered, so that tho
free-for-all fights for judge and clerk
of the Supreme court, attorney gen
eral, state treasurer and members of
tho board of public works will pro
tract tho convention to a late hour
on Wednesday evening.

Newport, It. 1., July S. If tho victory
of the Constitution over the Columbia
nnd the Independence on the first of
the three-cornered iticos on Saturday
was not sulllclent, her winning today
may well be characterized as over
whelming and tho defeat of the Inde
pendence as positive antl almost hope
less. The approach of evening ngaln
found the committee boat anchored far
out in Narragatlsott bay, along with
the catboat, which marked the othet
end of the ilnlsh line. tedlmiKly wait
ing for the linstnn boat to tross. while
her iival were well up tho harbor on
the way to their moorings. The now
Herreshoff boat had beaten the Colum
bia by nearly half an hour over the
thirty-mile courho. while rho record
against the Independence was almost a
full hour. The Constitution came neai
traveling around the triangle while th
Crownlnshlelil creation was covering
two legs ot It. Today's race establishes
the new Hristol sloop as a record
breaker In light airs. She has accom
plished what yachtsmen considered Im
possible. In thus beating tho Colum
bia, while her performance lias put the
Independence entirely out of tho run
ning In conditions like those of today.
What her Ahowing may be In heay
weather Is still a matter of conjecture,
as It Is with tho Independence, but the
experts nrej now almost ready to ne
cept any achievement of the Constitu
tion without surprise.
