NATIONAL HONOR AT STAKT:.
"In this contest patriotism Is above party, and
National honor Is dearer than any partv name.
The currency and credit of the Government are
good now. and must be kept good forever. Our
trouble Is not with the character of the money
that we have, but with ine threat to debase it
We have the same currency that we had In
1802, good the world over and unquestioned by
any people. Then. too. we had unexampled
credit and prosperltv. Oui difficulty now is to
get that money in circulation and Invested in
productive enterprises which furnish employ?

was on the platform of the railway Station wait?
ing for a train Into the city, when word wa?
taken to him of the result. He went Immediately
to hla rooms In the Palmer House, where he was
seen after the adjournment of the Convention
by a reporter. Mr. . ewall Is a fine looking man
of good stature and solid build. He Is sixty-one
years of ape and looks the prosperous New
England shipbuilder, railroad man and banker
that ho Is. He said he preferred to do no talk?
ing but consented to answer a few ?.uestlons.
He said:
"The nomination came to me entirely unex?
pectedly. I had no Idea of any such result when
I came to Chicago, I wish you would nls?i ?a;
that It came \.lthout solicitation on my part. I
shall r?'inaln In Chicago several days, and have
not decided what day I ?ball start for my home."
Ask?d for his opinion of the chances <?f the

they are very Rood The stren .th of the silver
men in th? Last Is greater eren than the friends
of silver realise. JudKin?; by our own Stat?-, the
silver party Is strong and constantly growing
stronger. In my State, when 1 announced my?

the silver men on th?' finK'-rs of my two hands.

Mr. Sewnll was ashed; If the Democrats nrc
defeated In the September election In Maine, will
It nm hurt the National ticket?"
He replied: "It ouiiht not to do so. The Re?
publicans generally win there, in fact, not since
1880 lune the I?em??crats carried the State."
"Will not the refusal to support the ticket by
Democratic newspapers In the East hurt the
ticket ?"
"I don't think fo."

emotional sp?-?-ch before an overwrought an?
hysteri'-al National Convention. After n night1
consideration, therefore, tin? canny Ohio edito

of soiling all its perplexities by throwing the sop
of a VI. ? ?Presidential nomination to "Silver

Finally, on the fifth ballot, the Convention's
weirled choice fell on a candidate WhOM will?
ingness to take a pla? e on th?? ticket with the
Nebraska orator was uniu?-stl.ui?-d. and whose
rumored a\ rilal.illt -, was ? hesrfully taken on
faith by th? tired and lestb-ss stiver il^leffAt.-s.
Arthur Sewall. of Maine, the millionaire? ship?
builder <>f Math, had been formally pres?-nted to
the Contajntlou a? a candidate for the Vlee
Pre?ldency, and on the first ballot had re?
ceived 111 votes. HI? eligibility did not seem to
have been sufllclently enforced, however,
i by his backers, and his canvass was not
' taken very seriously. On the se. <?nd ballot his
i support melted away and he polled only .'17
j votes. His fortunes re?overed a little on th??
third bsllot. after Bland and Slbley had forci?
bly taken th?m?elve? out of the race, and his
total vote ran up to 07. uj the fourth ballot
he sprans, Into second place In the contest, poll?
ing 2*11 votes to LW for Mr. McLean. McLean's
Anal tclesram of withdrawal gave the Maine
candidate a walkover on the fifth and last roll
call.
The nomination of Mr. Sewall I? conceded her?
to be a wholly nrspectable one. but whether un?
der all the circumstances of to-day's burlemiu?
In the Convention It can bo expected to add
genuine strength to the Altgeld-Tlllman ticket
Is seriously In doubt. Two hundred and sixty
delegates out of BOO failed to vote to-day, the
Pennsylvania and New-York delegation?, except
for a few stragglers, dea? rt Ing the hall before
the balloting began. The final action of the Con?
vention represents therefore the wishes and
policy of barely more than two-third? of the
delegatee elected, and Is apparently a?*cepted as
having; no binding force on the organization, at
the least, of a dozen States.
THE HLVSB I'KITULI.'ANt' AiiTlR.
While the Republican silver bolters were Bome
what disappointed In the mlHcarrlage of their
plans for securing n nomination for Senator Tid?
ier, nevertheless they claim to bs Jubilant that
W. J. Bryan is the nominee of th?- Convention.
Last nlftht Senators PuI.oIh and tV-tttgrew sent
numerous telegrams to Senat??r T?U?r a<lm??nlsh
InK him under no circumstances to commit him?
self on the result. Th.-y also Informed him that
they would go to Denver hnmadlately, whan a
conference would be ?held and plans for the
future determined upon. The Populists will also
b-* represented at the conference. A prominent
silver Republican said to-day:
?"The silver Republicans who bolted from the
St. ?Louis Convention believe the Populists
should nominate Senator Teller for President.
The Populists however, are very friendly to
Bryan, and the lender? may have some difficulty
in keeping the Convention from nominating him.
We believe that to win there should bo two
silver tickets In the Bold.
WEST AND SOUTH LISA .REE.
"In the fir. T place, the Far Western silver R?.?
publlcans believe in th<- protective tariff, and
they would not be likely to vote for Bryan, who
Is a radica! tariff reformer. On the other hand.
Teller may not stand well In the South, as th.-t"
are many Democrats down there who would
not vote for a man who had always been a He
puhllcan, no matter how firm his fidelity to the
free-allver movement Bryan could carry th.
South und Teller th? West. We believe that
after the St. Loots nomination Is made th<- Popu?
list, Democratic and free-silver leaders '-an come
together, and arrange a programme by which
the electoral votes of the South and Weal can
be united for free silver '
On th>? other hand, many Populists .?lleve It
would be base Ingratitud? to Ignore Bryan ar the
st. Louts Convention. They say that th.? fight of
the "plain people" in the Democratic convention
against the "plutocrats" of the East was a fight
for Ihem, and that the Pi pullstS who have been
shouting and working for Teller for th" last two
weeks aro now talking for Bryan, and It is said
that there will bo no stopping his nomination at
St. Louis. Denver may make gome Changa In the
Populist plans, but the silver Republicana de?
clare they will remain loyal to Teller.
BOUND-MONET DEMOCRATS CONfER.
Talk about the calling of a sound-money Demo?
cratic Convention to put a Presidential tb-ket In
the field Is still rather vague. A Step has been
takeq by the Illinois sound-money Dem?crata,
Whose voice In the State organization h.s been
ruthlessly repressed by Governor Altg_J?l. which
may. however, produce .?uni?' practical results, a
conference was h?-l?l last night under the auspices
Of the new "Honest Money" Democratic State
Central Committee, of which C A. Swing, of De.
eatur, III., Is chairman. Twelve members of the
committee and representatives 'mm several
other States were present and took part In the
discussion, which was led by Controller Bckela,
Franklin MacVeagh and Thomas A. Moran. The
following resolution was unanimously adopted:
Resolved, By th?- sound-money I'?mor rats of
Illinois that we nre In favor of the exiling of ii
National Convention of the Demccratl part] of
the United States for the purpose of nominating

Chicago. July 11.?The entertaining piar a?
"The Populist and the Plutocrat" was put nposj.
the hoards for the first time at the Collseas?
of this city to-'lay by thoso enterprising mansv
gers. John P. Altgeld and Benjamin R. Til??
man. It wa? 'list losed yesterday that William
J. Ilryan would enact his well-known part of
th? "Populist." hut until to-day the name of
the g-ntleman who was to take the title rol?
of the "Plutocrat" wub hidden fiom the public
gaze, fine of the reason? for this se*crecy was
the re?iulrement of Altg.-hl and THIman thai
the part of the "Plutocrat" was to be taken by
a man of large wealth. Not many p?riple at
thi? character came forward when they read
In the Chicago newspapers dispatches from all
over the United States predicting that the party
would he a failure. John R. Melaran, of Ohio,
It was thfiught at one time, would Iks willing
t<? assume the role, and William J. Bryan, ths
"Populist," had a conference with him on th?
subject at the Clifton House late lest r.ight
Whether Mr. Bryan too frankly dl*wlo?*i?l to
Mr. Mi Lean that h?- was to be the "angel" of
the I)em?>? ratio party, nnd thus op.en.-d an abyss
of expenditure t? him which revolted his sonl.
Is not known. What did become perceptible to
the public wa? that Mr. M ?Lean suddenly <a*>
parted toward Ohio, leaving word behind him
that he was n<?t ?"eking the character of "Plu?
tocrat." That a determined eff? rt was after?
ward made to druft him for this ix-aritliin Is
only one of many proofs that "The Populist and
Plutocrat Company, Limited." Is In hard ?traits
for hard cash, and was determinad to capture
a capitalist at all har.ards. Indeed, the painful
rumor went around laut night that the "I*Iu
toorat" hed been put up to the highest bidder,
and Joseph C. Slbley. the Populist mllll??nalrs
of Pennsvlvania, was one of the gentlemen
named for th ? place. Arthur Sewall, th?
millionaire shipbuilder of Bath, Me, was an?
other. No one was thftiKht lit to act the part ex
cept a multimillionaire. Such a rag?- for Im?
pressing a millionaire to act this ?har.aeter In a
Populistic play was thought to be remarkable.
LACK OF PCRI.IC INTKRE8T.
When the Democratic National Conv.-ntlon met
at 10 o'clock the "Plutocrat" had not yet been se?
lected. The Vice-Presidency was still for sale,
with Rryan. Altgeld. Tlllman. Harris, Vesl. Cock
rell and Walthall as the nuetloneers. The Con?
vention Hall showed the lack of public Interest
and even of a large proportion of th* delegates
themselves In the further procevdlngs of the Con?
vention. Only about ??,000 spectators w.re pres?
ent of the ?O.Oiin that usually have lie? | within
the Convention Hall When the Convention was
In session three or four acr?-s of unoccupied ?*???!?
thu? attracted one's attention. Within the lB
closure devoted to the delegates also were many
vacant chairs. It Is probable that one-third of
the doU-eates had departed for their home?. On
the first ballot 1T?H delegates were reported to b?
absent and only ?iN_ present; and this 6S2 exa_s
perated the actual number present, since a roll
call In the Ohio delegation pho?xed that UlCT?
?sere tifteen absentes, ami yet the chairman
was p.-rmltted to cast the full vote of the delega
? tlon. forty-nix v??tes. for various candidatea Th??
1 "rump" character of the Convention was beirt
! disclosed In the central part of the hnll, where '
? the gold Democrats ha?l occupied s.-ats. There
si-otas ??f seats were unoccuple?! Roswell P.
i Flower and four other delegates represented
j Xew-York's big delegation ?if seventy-two BBsMsV?
i bei?. Rh??de Island v.?is absent. There wer?
fifty-nine men In the Pennsylvania de|??gation
I who were either absent or who would r.ot vote
j for V|ce-Pr?'si<l?-nt, nor ?-ould they be tempt?'d to
do so ev??n when William F. Harrtty. th?-ir chair?
man, received votes for Vlce-I'est<lent.
Looking at the .1? l.-jiat-s, with one-third ert
their seats unoccupied, and at the space devoted
to spectators, with only one-sixth of their seat?
t.ecupled, it s.-emed as If the lightning <?f popular
i condemnation of this Democratic National Con?
vention ha?l alr.-.tdy ent?-r?-d the great room and
annihilated a lar?,-?? p?ortlon of Its o.-cupants. Th?
, leaders of the sllv.-r Democrats themselves
s.-.-me,l ?ware that the Convention wa? scantily
i attended. been?s_Bi th>> waited until 11 o'clock

he showed no manifestation of such feeling; on
