tWO YOCNO WOMIX STAn? A BOIES DEMON
STOATIOX. A Boles demonstration was started by ths
Iowa delegation, but made no progress till two
youoc women, dressed tn white. In the south
gallery, stood up. and, wildly wavlag their arms,
began shrieking for Iowa's Oovernor.
Homebody handed one of them two flags, and
by this time the attention of the whole Conven
tion was directed toward them, and everybody
faced that way. The Boles banner was carried
to them, and between tbem they man
aged to wavn It a few times, and then
sank back In their seats exhausted. After a
brief rest one of them rose again and was
escorted to tho floor, everybody stand
ing on chairs to see the sight and
cheering and laughing as the enthnslastlo
lady, escorted by some male friend with
his arm around ber waist, danced all round the
ball. Th name of the author of this extraor
dinary demonstration was stated to be Miss
Minnie Murray of Nashua, la. 8he Informed a
representative of tho United Press that she
was only 22 years old.
It was 11:1(5 when this scene collapsed and
the fair lowan'and her escort settled down In
seats tendered them among the Iowa delega
tion. Tho extraordinary episode occupied nearly
bait an hour,

tAssoonassoinellghtdegreoof order was re-"-TS5tal.lI3r.td,
the nomination of Mr. Boles was
seconded by Mr. A. T. Smith of Minnesota,
who characterized the candidate as " the grand
old commoner erf tho Hawkeye State."
If It bad not been for Horace Boies, said Mr.
Smith, there would be no sliver majority in the
Convention to-C.v. Michigan had just been
rarried for the cold standard, when, all at once.
Horace Boles threw down the gage of battle to
the Federal officeholders, and the result was
thai tho prairies were on Are. and that thirty
six delegates were? elected to the Convention to
Tote for free silver and Horace Boles. That was
the orsclal point of the battle. Tho cause of
silver was then won.

CniOAOo, July B. The Committe on Ile.
olntlona went Into secret session at 10 o'clock
this morning and made several changes In th
platform agreed upon yesterday. The princi
pal change was the adoption of u plank favor
ing religious liberty. Ex-Senator Walsh ad
vocated the adoption of tho plank, and he
was the only porsbn who addressed tho com
mittee on the subjeot. He said that ths very
brief reference to roljgious liberty In the
draft of the platform as published was not
satisfactory. Civil and religious liberty was
the political faith of the Iemocratlo party,
and a National Domocratlo Convention should
have the courugo of it convictions and so de
clare to the country In language that could
not bo misunderstood. Unices this declara
tion was mode, millions of American froemen
would bo disappointed. Gonator Walsh then
read his plank, which was unanimously agreed
to. Senator Daniel mured the adoption of
The plank was Inserted as th third para,
graph of tho platform. Change wero mads
in tho plan'i referring to the Issue of notes
by national hanks, in the plank ref orrlng to im
migration, in the plauk favoring the admis
sion of Territories into the Union as States.
A plank was added calling for arbitration in
labor disputes concerned with inter-Stats
commerce A plank was also added declaring
that the Monroo doctrine "must jit all times
The Complete PlatfOnm.
This is the full text of tha declaration of
principles as reported to tbe Convention:
Wa, the Democrats of the Unttod Slates in
National Convention assembled, do rcafhr m
our allegiance to thoso great essential princi
ples of Justlc and liberty upon which oar In
stitutions aro founded, and which the Domo
cratlo party has advocated from Jefferson's
tlmo to our own freedom of speech, freedom
of the press, freedom of conscience, tho pres
ervation of personal rights, tho equality of all
citizens before the law, and the faithful observ
ance of constitutional limitations.
During all theso years tho Democratic party
has resisted the tendency of eelOsh interests to
tho centralisation of governmental power, and
steadfastly maintained the integrity of tho
dual schema of government established by tho
founders of this republlo of republics. Under
Its guidance and teachings the great prlnclplo
of local self-government has found its best ex
pression In th maintenance of tho rights of
th State and in its assertion of the necessity
of confining the general Government to the ex
ercise of powers granted, by tho Constitution of
tbe United States.
The Constitution of tho United States guar
antees tp every cttlten th rights of cl 11 and re
ligious liberty. The Domocratlo party has al
ways been tho exponent of political liberty
and religious freedoAi and it renews lu obli
gations and roafllrms Its devotion to these fun
damental prlnolplei of the Constitution.
IlecognlzlDg that the money question Is para
mount to all other at this tune, we invite at
tention to tho fact that the Constitution names
silver and gold together as th money metals
o( th United States, and that tho Qrat coinage
law passed by Congress under the Constitu
tion mado the silver dollar the money unit, and
admitted gold to free coinage at a ratio based
upon the silver dollar unit.
We declare that tha act of 1873 demone
tizing silver without the knowledge or ap
proval of the American people has resulted in
the appreciation of gold, and a corresponding
fall tn the prices of commodities produced by
the people: a heavy Increase in the burden of
taxation and of all debts, public and private:
the enrichment of the money-lending class at
home and abroad, th prostration of indus
try, and impoverishment of tbe people.
Ave are unalterably opposed to monometal
llsm, which has locked fast the proinerlty of
an Industrial people in the paralysis of hard
timet. Gold monometallism Is a British policy,
and its adoption has brought other nations
Into financial servitude to London. It Is not
only un-American, but anti-Amorican, and it
can be fastened on the United States only by
the stifling of that spirit and love of liberty
which proclaimed our political independence
In 1770 and won it in the war of the Revolu
tion. We domand the free and unlimited coinage
of both silver and gold at the present legal ra
tio of 10 to 1, without waiting for the aid or
consent of any other nation. We demand that
th standard silver dollar shall be a full legal
tender, equally with gold .for all debts, oubllo
and private, and we favor such legislation as
Kill prevent for tno future the demonetization
of any kind of legal tender money by private
We ore opposed to the poller and practice of
surrendering to the holders of the obligations
of the Unltod States tho option reserved by
law to the Oovsrnment of redeeming such ob
ligations In either silver coin or gold coin.
We are opposed to tbe ls.sainc of interest
bearing bonds of the United States in tlmo of
peace, and condemn the trafficking with bank
ing syndicate which. in exchange for bonds anil
at an enormous profit to themselves, supply
the Federal Treasury with gold to maintain
the policy of gold monometallism.
Congresf alone has th powor to coin and is
sue money, and President Jackson declared
that this power could not bo delegated to cor
porations or Individuals. Wo therefore de
nounce the issuanco of notes intended to cir
culate as money by national banks as In dero
gation of the Constitution, and we demand that
all paper whloh is made a legal temlur for pub
llo and private debts or which Is receivable for
duties to the United States shall be Issued by
tbe Oovemment of the United States and shall
be redeemable in coin.
We hold that tariff duties should be levied
for purposes of rsvenue, such duties to be so ad
Justed a to operate equally throughout tha
country and not discriminate between class or
section, and that taxation should be limited by
the needs of the Government honestly and eco
We denounce as disturbing to business the
Republican threat to restore tho McKlnlvy
law, which has twlco been condemned by the
people in national elections, and which, en
acted tinder ths; falso plea of protection to
home industry, proved a prollflo breeder of
trtut and monopolies, enriched tho few at
tho expense of the many, testrlcted trade, and
deprived tho producers of the great American
taplcs of access to their natural markets.
Until the money question Is settled we are
opposed to any agitation for further changes In
our tariff laws, ovcept such ashore necessary to
meet the deficit In revenue caused by the ad
vereo decision of the Supreme Court on the In
come tax. But for this decision by the Su
premo Court there would bo no dellclt in the
revenue under the law passed by a Domocratlo
Congress in strict pursuuncof the uniform de
cisions of that court for nearlj 100 years, that
court having In that decision sustained consti
tutional objections to Its enactment which hail
previously been overruled by tho ablest Judges
Mho have ever (-at on that bench. We declaro
that It Is the duty of Congress to uso all the con
stitutional power which remains after that de
cision, or which may como from Its reversal by
the court on It may hereafter bo constituted, so
that tho lmrdensof taxiitlun maybe ciuallv
and Impartially laid, to the end that ncalth
may bear Its dne proportion of the expenses of
We hold that the most efficient way of pro
tecting Amenoan labor Is to prevent the Im
portation of foreign pauper labor to competo
with It In the home market, and that tho value
of tho home markot to our American farmem
and artisans Is gieatly reduced by a vicious
monotary systom which depresses the prices of
their products below the cost of rirodnctlon.and
thus deprives them of tho means of purchasing
tho products of our home manufactories, and,
as labor creates the wealth of tho country, wo
demand the passage of such laws as may be
necessary to protect It In all its rights.
We urn In favor of tbe arbitration of differ
ences between employers enraged In inter
Stat oommeroo and their employees, and
recommend such legislation as Is necessary to
carry out this prlnclplo.
The absorption nf wpalth bv tho few, the con
solidation of our leading railroad systems, and
the formation of trusts and pools require r,
Brloter control by the Federal Oovemment of
those arteries nf commerce. We demand the
enlargement of the powers of tbe Inter-State
Commerce Commission and suoh restrictions
and guarantees In the control of railroads as
will protect tho people from rubbery and op
pression. Wo denounce the profligate warte of the
money wrung from the people by oppressive
taxation and the lavish appropriations of re
cent Republican Congresses, which have kept
tuxes high while the labor thut pays them la
unemployed, and the products of the people's
loll ure ilepre 4id In prlco till they no Jouger re
pay the cost of production.
Wedemnnd a return to that simplicity and
economy which befits a Domocratlo Govern
tueut and a reduction in the number of useless
ofllces, the salaries of which drain the sub
stance nf the peoplo.
Wo denounce arbitrary interference by Fed
eral authorities In local affairs as a violation
of the Constitution of the United States and a
crime against free Institutions, and we espe
cially object to covernment by Injunction as a
new and highly danucrous form of oppression,
by which federal Judgos. lu contempt of tho
lun k of the States and rwhts of cltlens. be
como at one legislators, Jndees, and oxecu
tloners, and wo apprnie iho bill passed at ths
last session of the United Btatos Henate, and
now pending In the House of Representatives,
relative to contempts la Federal courts and
providing for trials by Jury In certain cats
of contempt. . . . .-
No discrimination should be Indulged by ths
Government of th United States In favor of
any of Its debtors. We approve of th refusal
of ths Fifty-third Congress to past tha Paclflo
Railroad Funding bill, and denounce th
efforts of the present Republican Congress to
enact a similar measure.
IUoognlslng the Just claims of deserving
Union soldiers we heartily endorso the ml
of ths present Commissioner of Pensions that
no names shall b arbitrarily dropped from
th pension roll: and the fact of enlistment
and aerrlce should be deemed conoluslv evi
dence against disease and disability before
We favor th admission of tho Territories of
New Mexico, Ariaona, and Oklahoma Into the
Union as States, and we favor th early ad
mission of all tho Territories having tbe neces
sary population and resources Jo entitle them
to Statehood, and, while they remain Terri
tories, we hold that the ofQclalt annolnted to
administer the government of any Territory,
together with tho District of Columbia and
Alaska, should be bona fide residents of the
Torritory or district in whloh the duties aro to
be performed. The Democratic party believes
In home rule and that all publlo lands of the
United States should bo impropriated to the
establishment of freo homes fur Amctlcan
Wo recommend that the Territory of Alaska
be granted a delegate In Congress, and that
the general land and timber laws of the
United BUtes be extended to said Territory.
Tho Mont oo doctrine as originally declarod,
and as Interpreted by succeeding Presidents,
Is a permanent part of tho foreign policy of th
United States, and must at all times be main
tained. W extend our sympathy to tho peoplo of
Cuba In their heroio Btrugglo for liberty and
Wo are opposed to llfo tenuro in the publlo
service. Wo favor appointments bosod upon
merit, fixed terms of oftlce, and such an admin
istration of tlso civil service laws as will afford
equal opportunities to all citizens or ascer.
Wo doularo It to bo the unwritten law of this
republic, established by custom and usage of
one hundred years and sanctioned by the ex
amples of tho greatest and wisest of those who
founded and have tnalntalnod our Govern
ment, that no mau should bo ollgiblo for a
third term of the Presidential oftlce.
The Federal Oovemment should care for
and Improve tbe Mississippi River and other
great waterways of tho republic, so as to se
euro for the Interior States easy and cheap
transportation to tidewater. When any wa
terway of tho republlo is of sufficient Impor
tance to demand aid nf the Government such
alrl should be extended upon n definite plan of
continuous work until permanent Improve
ment is secured.
Qcnlldlng In th Justice of our causo and
the juocesslty of its success at tho polls, wo sub
mit the foregoing declarations of principles
and t'urposss to the considerate Judgment of
the American people. Wo Invito the support
of all citizens who approve them and who de
sire to have them made effective through leg.
lslstion for tho relief of the peoplo and tbe res
toration of tho country's prosperity.

cago, reiterated to-day his denial that he had
received any communication "from any one in

In his office In the rooms of the Security Trust
Company, of which he Is President, he enter
tained half a dozen hearers for a half hour.
Regarding publications from Chicago that he
bad been advised to withdraw his name, ho
" I have had no communication from Mr. Har
rlty nor Senator Smith of New Jersoy nor from
uny one tn ths Pennsylvania delegation who Is
authorized us I understand It to speak for the
delegation. I have therefore not communicated
with the delegates la any way."
Ho then refsrrod to the action of tbo recent
Pennsylvania Democratlo Convention In in
structing the National Convention dolegates to
sunport him for the Presidency wltbont any
solicitation on hit part, and said that be could
not very well take himself out of that whloh he
never put himself Into.
After declaring that " whatever tbe Pennsyl
vania delegation may do In Its wisdom will be
acceptable to me," the rx-Govcrnor replied to a
question that under no circumstances would hs
accept tbe nomination at the bands of gold men
who may bolt the Convention. He continued!
"I do not know that such a condition (a bolt
by the gold men) will arise, but under no Mr
eumstaoces would I accept the nomination of a
bolting delegation. The only manly way to In.
dlcate the sentiment of the gold men who be
llovn in tbe gold basis. In my Judgment, Is by
voice and br vote; to do anything else would be
cowardly. Tbo delegates were sent to the Con
vention to express the opinions of their con
stituents, and the onlv way they can Intelli
gently do so is by a protest In an address sup
ported by their vote. They were sent to the
Convention to vote and not to run away."
Mr. Pattlson said that the nomlneo of ths
i'hlcago Convention should he supported by
Jomooratfl. "I would rather bear tbe Ills that
now hare," h said, " than to fly to others that
I know not of."
He further reaffirmed bis allegiance to the
gold standard and taldi "In conclusion permit
me to say, In the language of the distinguished
Senator from Now York, 'I am a Democrat. "

Cnioxao, July 0. Senator Hill had Just re
turned from tho Convention last night and was
In his room washing up. Major Utnkley, Elliott
Donforlh, and two or three of his friends were
in the room with him when ihere came a
knock on the door. Major lilnklcy opened It,
and In walked a young man In rather shabby
clothes and using a crutch. He was not
ovorclean, and he looked a bit as If he had
been drinking. He walked ovor to where the
Senator was standing and said :
"Senator, I represent seventeen papers along
tbo Hudson River, sir, se enteen. I wantjto get
an intervlow with you to sond to thoso papers
"Represont seventeen, eh?" said ths Sona
tor. "Strango, I don't remomber your name."
" Well, I represent Cap Ulnkley's paper. You
know Cap Ulnkley's paper, don't you ?"
The Senator rubbed tho bald spot on his head.
"lilnklcy? Cap Ulnkleyy Can't say that I
"You mean to tell me. Senator," said the
shabby man, " that you don't know Cap II Ink
ley, Cap Hinkley of Poughkeepslo, sir?"
"Never beard the name," said the Senator
without a blush. "Never heard of him. Uns
he got a papor ?"
"Well, I should say he had." said the young
man, "and I repretsnt it, sir."
"You don't happen to havo any credentials
about you, do you?" said tho Senator, smiling.
"You know, I make it a rule not to talk to gen
tlemen of the press unless I know tbem myself
or they give me some evidence that they are
what they represent themselves to be. Of
conrse I understand, sir, that you are all right,
but you wouldn't want ma to break an invaria
ble rule now, would yon?"
Major Ulnkloy, Mr. Danforth. and tho other
men In the room were almost bursting with
mirth, but not ono of them cracked a smile.
The young man bit his finger nails a minute
"Hinkley Is bore in Chicago somewhere, and
would a letter from him do?"
" You know Mr. Hinkley pretty well, do yon f
said the Senator. "You think you could get a
letter from him?"
"Get letter from htm? Of oourse I could
get a letter from him." said the man. " If I could
find him. He is an old frlond of mine, but I
don't knowwharo I conld find him."
" Well," said tho Senator, grinning, " I like to
help you boys out onco In a while. Porhaps I
can give you a hand. Let me Introduce you to
Everybody In the room broke Into a roar of
laughter and the young man lied.
The face of Old Oardon Sass Cockrell was a
study for a physiognomist last night when tho
Demooratlo National Convention got away
from Temporary Chairman Daniel, and, taking
matters in its own hands, roared out Its ap
proval of Now York's 72 votes against the out
rageous steal of tbe sllverltes In the Michigan
delegation. Old Garden Boss has a seat up
front. When the noise came he ran his hands
up through his hair, his eyos bulged, his
fingers twitched. At the end of another
minute, when everybody In the great
building seemed to be howling except
the silver delegates who bod Just voted lu
favor of tho steal. Old Garden Sass n as al
most beside himself. He twisted around In his
chair, his head bobbed np and down, and he
waved his arms wildly at the temporary Chair
man, Two or threo times he half got up, then
he sank back In bts seat again, and clapped his
hat on. He kept It on an instant, took tt off. put
It on again, took It off again and put It on again.
1 here be left it while be resumed his frantic
efforts to attract ths attention of the Chairman.
At the end of ten minutes his Jaw was work
ing like a machine. His ordinarily white face
was rod. Itwasplaln that be was worked up
almost to the point of bursting with Indignation
and with fear tor the effect the demonstration
mlzhthaveon his long-whiskered, goggle-eyed
irlenda trom the scrub-oak and the sage-brush
districts. At the end of twelve minutes he
could stand It no longer. Crunoblng tbe crown
of his hat In one hand, be Jumped up
and mado bis way tq the platform;
thvro he took hold of the arm of tbo
temporary Chairman and shook It and howled
aometblng In his ear. What It was nobody
could hear, probably not evon the temporary
Chairman himself, for tno noise that the crowd
was making was so great that one could hnrdiy
bear himself think. For five minutes Old Oar
den Bass stood there, shaking Ills fingers, bob
bing his head, wagging his whiskers. Ills Jaw
worked up and down and sideways and on tbe
bias at tbe rate of a mile a minute.
When tho demonstration at last came to an
end he clasped his hands In front of him, and
could almost be seen to say, "Thank Ood i" He
returned to his seat In the body of the hall. It
was nbout twenty minutes lator when tho roll
call had been completed, and the clerk ruido
the announcement that despite the demonstra
tion made by Urn frlonds of the honest Demo
crats, ho didn't belloio In stealing delegates,
the four gold men In tbe Michigan delegation
whoso seats had been contested had been
thrown out and that the delegation In
the tutnro would voto as a unit for free
silver, when the second demonstration of the
Convention began. Again the face of Old Oar
den Sets was a study, but this time It wan a dif
ferent kind of study. Usually solemn and grave.
Old Garden Sass looked mirthful, lie grinned
from ear to ear. He rubbed his hands. He
slapped Senator Vest on the ahoulier and whis
pered. Every once In a while he slung his hat
around his head and It looked as though ho was
going to let out one or those blood-curdling rebel
yells that are the surest sign of great Joy ever
seen In National Conventions.
As the demonstration continued five, ten, and
fiftoen minutes Old Garden Sass became more
enthusiastic. His smllu looked as If It was
going to stretch 'way round and the two cor
ners of his mouth were going to meet at the
back of his neek. The shoulder of Senator Vest
Is probably black and blue to-day from the
pounding it got. It was fully fire minutes after
the second demonstration bad ceased that the
face of Old Garden Sass rosumed its normal
condition, and ho again gave all attention to tbe
detailed work of tho Convention.
"Get upl get upl" shoutod Gov. Evans of
South Carolina when Pitchfork Tillman was

of the Convention for the purposo of pitchfork

Carolina, and he set tbo oxiimplo himself by
leaping upon his chair, waving bis arms nbout
his head, and emitting whoop after whoop. Ho
danced up mid down and Bcreamed, Tho other
delegates obeyed his call, but while they were
doing tbo only cheering tbat nag being dona
In the Convention Hall at least a third of tho

boas freo-sllver shoutor of the Lake region and
the would-be boss of the Democratlo patty to

demonstrated tbat more than one brass band Is
an Infernal nuisance. When there Is moro than
one band there Is always a tight. No two hands
ever play the samo piece at the same time, and

Xr (Successor to tho Metropolitan Ti Icphono y

f II Cortlandt Street Its West Mth Street fj
was demonstrated to-day while Pitchfork Till
man was making his speech. A Bland " bimet
allism and bust" band entered the hall Just
after he had began to speak, it did not get Into
the pari that Is used for Convention purposes,
hut it got Just outside the partition and It
played ' We won't go home till morning." and
liable, come kiss your honey boy," and that
sentimental nuisance that threatened to drive
he city of 8L Louis Into a paresis asylum,
"Say Au Itevolr. but Not Oood-hy." It nfleoted
Chairman lllchardaon a a red rag affeots a bull,
lie danced up and down and thundered orders
to stop that band. Sergeant-at-Arma Martin
seconded him with screams of "Police! police!
Stop that band I"
Pitchfork gritted his troth and shook his (1st
Tho police and tbe assletant Sergeant-at-Arms
rushed out of the hall. The delegates and tbe
audlooce screamed with delight. Suddenly the
band stopped and the shout went up:
" They've got him : they've got Mm I"
And Sergeant-at-Arms Martin shouted t
"Yes, and they ought tochoko hlml"
Tbo police not only stopped tho Illand bimet
allism band, bnt they fired It out of tho ball.
When any man gets on ths platform to mak
a speech tn this Convention that Is, any man
whom tho crowds want to hear the scene back
in the part reserved for tho audience Is a curi
ous ono. Kvorybody seems to bo armed with a
nowspaoer, and overy newspaper Is Instantly
turned into a great funnel, ths big end pointing
toward tha platform whoro the speaker Is. Th
funnels are so big that most of them covor up
the faco of tho owner, and tho result Is that the
man who is up In front look Ing back simply sees
tho ends of bodies with elongated boles for
heads. With the aid of those newspaper fun
nels the people In the back of the hall are able
to hear what Is said on the platform. The mak
ing nf the funnels creates a rustle almost as
loud as tho whistling of winter wind.
Thero was ono man In tbe Convention this
morning who came near being 11 red out and
thrashed, though he did not moan any harm,
lie was on the platform aide of tho ball, and
through opera glasses he discovered a frlond in
one of tho back seats on the opposite side. Ha
pulled out his handkerchief, and for fiftoen or
twenty minutes he waved it to attract the at
tention of his friend. It happened that this fif
teen or twonty minutes was a very noisy period
in tho Convention. The waving of this man was
seen by nenrly all the delegates, and at onco the
storlosnf a packed hall that had been Industrious
ly oirculated from tho first reuurrod. The dele
gates mistook the man's action and thought hs
was signalling to somebody on the other side to
koep up the disorder that prevailed. Thero
were shouts of "Put him out! put that man
out!" and atons tlmo half the delegates In tho
Convention were on their feet shaking their
fingers and their fists at the man. lie did not
soero to realize that he was the object of their
wrath, and he kept right on with hit signalling.
The Sergeant-at-Arms himself hustled over to
where the man was standing. Kxplanatlons
followed and nothing was done to him, but ho
did not signal any more.
Ho was a Georgian, lie was wandering along
State street lonesome-Uke and seemingly sad.
He looked three times at Tns Sun reporter be
fore ho approached.
" Stranger." he said. " would you direct mo to
a flrst-olass faro bank or a snorting house, one
or both? I'm from Oaorgla, and I'm a stranger
Tho reporter had to acknowledge his inability
to assist the Georgld delegate.
"What do yon think of tho crowd?" asked
tho reporter of Al Gage, one of the local celeb
rities of Chicago, as tbat man came In the din
ing room at the Palmer House last night.
'"What do you think of tho silver end of this
combination, any way?" '
" What do I think of It?" said Gage. "Well,
now. Just look. These fellows came hereon last
Saturday. Every demned ono of tbem had one
shirt and one silver dollar In bis pocket, and
ho ain't changed either."
And he went on, disgust written all over htm.
The most awful of all dlsoases, that known a
Tho Dig Head, Is very prevalent In Chicago to
day. Ono of the minor delegates from New
York suffers from It to the extent that makes
htmanoDjectof pity. An Insanity expert, dis
cussing this disease to-day, said: "Medicine
and surgery have mado such wonderful ad
vances In the last ten or fifteen years that now
almost every disease is curable. Every oue save
this. Once a man is afflicted with It he
never can get over It. It Is a form of incurable
Insanity. Kgotlsm and self-adulation are Its
chief features, lhe victim of the disease Is a
bore to bis friends and to evtrybody else He Is
of no use In the world. Perhaps that Is too
harsh a thing to say. Let us put it olhorwlse by
saying that his usefulness Is Impaired almost to
the point of nothing.
"I havo known men who get the big head to
have sufllolunt sense left to understand what It
as when their friends told thorn about It.
Some of these men 1 have known to try and
overcome tho disease, but they never havo been
able to do so. Theso men, however, iiro rare
exceptions to the rule. The man with a big
head Is usually utterly unablo tn think of any
thing except himself, aud In himself he sees
Thero aro a lot of thrifty men In this town
who aro dolegates to tbe Convention or are
here booming along tho boom of tome candi
date, aud one of them is an Irishman. The Illi
nois Central Italtroad Issues tickets to and
from the Convention hall that are good only
on tho day that they are purchased. This Irish
man was a passenger on one of these trains
early this morning before the rush begun.
When tho conductor camo along and called
'"llcketa" the Irishman patted his pockets,
shook his head, and said:
"Too many pockets, too many pockets; I
don'tjknow where I put it."
" ell. I will bo back in a minute," said the
conductor, " Have It for me then." He camn
bsckrlu about tan minutes. Tbe Irishman was
still patting his pockets and saying: "Too many
rickets: too many pockets, l don't know where
llo talked as if hehad something In his mouth,
and tha conductor looked at htm qulzxlcally a
minute and said:
" Why, there you havo got it in your mouth.
What is the matter with you ?"
The Irishman took his ticket out of bts mouth
and handed It to tho conductor, who punched it
and went on,
"Well, Pat," said the man who occupied ths
seat opposite, " your ore about tho most absent
minded man that 1 ever laid eyes on In my lira."
"Absent-minded, la it. me lad?" said I'at.
"Do you think It was absont-mlnded 1 was 7
Well, I wasn't. I was Just sookln' the date off.
I bought It jesterduy. You see lie took It."
The thrifty Irishman took tho opportunity to
shout for Illand for President.
Ho was a mombor of tho Now York delega
tion mulcted with that terrible disease big
beau. He came out of the dining room In the
Auditorium and stood in front nf the boy who
takes care of tho hats. The hoy quaked In
front of him, and, pick Ing up tho first hat handy,
ho handed It to this statesman. The statesman
took It, put It on, tooK It off, and, handing It
bnck, said savagely:
"That hat's ton small for mo."
The boy lied In torror, mid tho stntesman
filially lound a hut that seemed to fit him, but
It was plain that ho was nn actor man. He
had tho stage ualk and had the hungry stage
look. Ho had shoes tlmt showed long experi
ence with tha rn 11 road ties. He had dignity to
"beat the band." Hu was tall nnd seedy look
ing. He approached tbe main entrance nf the
Convention hull, shoved hit right hand be
tween the buttons of his frock coat, threw nut
his eliost, fixed tho doorkcoper with his eye,
" I prithee. Sir Warder, admit mo to the lint
lowed portals. Shall It bo bald lu cruel scorn

"Take a tuck, or I'll trow de parloullls at

one of the linterrlfleiT, nnd the actor drew back,
"Bo be It, base knave," he orled, "I go, hut,

the untorrlllud, "anddat's where you'll get It If
you don't gtt a move on,"
When Senator Hill was assigned to bis room
in tho Palmer House ou the day of hit arrival,
he looked out of tho window and saw right oloto
to It an elevated railroad. The Senator Is a quiet,
uuobtrustro citizen, hut if there Is one thing he
cannot stand, It Is an elevated railroad train puf
fing and creaking by tho window uf tho loom In
which he sleeps. And he made a kick. This
kick woe reBnforoed by distinguished men from
Now Yurk. They expostulated with tboclork.
They xuld It wouldn't do, that It was no place to
put a man who had come hero to work, and that
snmu other provision would have tu be made.

It Is said here to-day that Senator White, the
permanent Chairman of the Democratlo Na
tional Convention, Is tbe one official of the Con
vention who knows his business, and Is ono of the
mighty few men In publlo llfo who Is a great
speaker. The reason these nice things aro being
said about Senator White to-day Is tbat his
speech at the Convention last night was exactly
four minutes and fifty-nine seconds long, ft is
the custom of men elected to tne permanont
Chairmanship of any Convention to make a
speech outlining the history nf the party, the
lives of its founders, and the glowing prospects
of Its futurs, It was expected that Senator
White would follow tho custom. Ills declara
tion when he started tn speak that he would not
detain tbe audience with extended remarks was
groeted with the wildest kind of oheers.

You can't go anywhere In this town without
having the news of the Convoutlon shouted at

novel of all Is the phonograph shout- In a

they have enormous trumpets over tho doors, the

The entbuslam at last night's session of the
Convention was responsible for a great loss of
hats. Wbon the Convention was over there
were twenty-five or thirty men who were hat
less. There was one man who was costless.
The men without hats had In their enthusiasm
tossed their head tear up in the air, nnd the bats
had fallen to be trampled on. That Is what the
man who was costless had done, too. He was
to enthuslastlo tbat he fired his coat up and he
never saw It again. Who got It he does not
know. No remnants of It were found on the
floor. Somebody must have got 1L The Hon.
Lon Wager aud Sergeant-at-Arms Martin are
two of the men who lost their hats.

The man who created a commotion by uuf url

Chairman's desk after the Cuban sympathetic

to-day of tho sound-money element of tbo Dom
ocratlo National Convention, and ex-Congrss.
mnn Ilryan of Nebraska was tho hero of th

cat skill In oratory, and each orator was strlk-
Ingly effectivo from bit political standpoint, ,
Hill separated the Populists Trom tho Dem

anti-monopoly and free sllrorlsm over both fao- 4
tlons, and struck such a rcsponslvo chord In tha '
hearts of the 020 ffco-colnage delegates thai ho I
carried the Convention by storm, )

Presidency. If tho sound-money men Instead H
of the sllverltes had control of tho Convention,
Senator Hill would ba numlnalod by acclama
tion. Undor tho clroumitaiiooa he must step asldo. '
His "pt-ech to-day was Indlcatlro of tho re
action that has already set In against ths
radical Popullstlc sentiment that has had
the Convention under Its domination since It
met, and tho Tlllmans and Altgelds who
yesterday wore tho central figures of the Con
vention, were to-day rebuked and praciicauv
ropudtated, thoy still control the working of th
Convention, and villi continue to do so to tha
Thor wrote the anarchistic platform nnd tholr
votes adopted It, but their Influence has now bo
sun to wane, with the raising of tho stars uf
Hill and Ilryan, and the voices of Tillman and
Altgeld will no longer bo all powerful. Th
Convention Is still dominated by the freo-sllver
men, but tbe Anarchists here have boon crowded
to the wall.
It Is Tillman of South Carolina and Cookercll
of Missouri who are most responsible for tha
reporting of a political platform whloh gava
Senator Hill tho opportunity, whloh bo
quickly availed himself of, to deliver what I
generally regarded here as the master Breech
of his publlo career. Hill denounced Populism,
but he did not assail free silver. Ha protested
against committing the party to a particularra
tlo of silver coinage and ho trod heavily upon,
th anarchlstlo recommondatlon In the plat
form. Hut ha mado no enemies of such1 delegates la
the Convention wboso leanings toward free
silver aro the only weak spots In their Democ
racy. He refused to rebuke tha nationnl Ad
ministration, and thus gave new cvldencoof hi
right to say:
" I am a Democrat."
Tho oration extended to Senator IIUl at th
conclusion of his speech had been In a measure 1
anticipated, because he has been the popular 1
political figure tn chargo for a week. He was Eg
never In such good voice, never In snob control of J
himself, and never so epigrammatic nnd forceful H
as he was tn-dar. Tho applause which he re- i
celred, sincere and prolonged as It was, did not 1
como entirely from the sound-money men U
In the Convention. Hundreds of free- I
sliver delegates and thousands of spec- H
tutors, whoso otopathies wore entirely
with the freo-sllver cause, cheered and
applauded the New York SoDator and hailed
him as tho coming leader of the Democratlo
party. By his speech he had turned the vic
torious popullstlc leaders Into scapegoats, and
had virtually turned the defeated antl-freo-sltver
Democrats Into heroes.
The Senator spat upon populism and anarch- I
Ism until the free-silver orators who followed 1
were compelled to repudiate the Tillman and I
Altgeld idea, while fastening upon tho
Convention It manacles which they
had rorged. The platform Is a tribute
to the work of tbe undemocratic elemental
of the Democratlo party, while the pop
ular applause for Hill, who spurned the plat
form, for .Tones of Arkansas, who repudiated 1
Tillman and pleaded for peace, und for tho II
others who apologised for the work of those I
who control the Convention, Is an evidence of 1
the reaction already felt in favor of having this 1
Convention retain at least a shred of Its De-
Tho Convention, in a word, accepted tbe work
of the Tlllmans and Altgelds, but im- 1
mediately apologized and expressed their 1
shame for having done so by heaping "j
tho honors of applause and commenda-
Hon upon the men who had denounced '
theso dangerrous leaders. Revolution Is writ
ten In every lino of the platform adopted, bat
patriotism and party loyalty shone forth la
each wave of applause tbat swept over the Con
vention when IIUl, as a Democrat, denounced
It, when Jones of Arkansas, as a Democrat,
repudiated Tillman, and when Bryan of Ne
braska, although making a radical free-silver
speech, tainted here and thero with populism,
nevertheless counselled decency and fairness In '
The Convention, notwithstanding its over,
whelming preponderance of free-silver votes,
was yet afraid of the doctrines enunciated by
the ranting Popnllst from South Carolina, nnd
he sat sullen and silent in his chair at the head
of his delegation when the Convention went
wild at the more temperato spcoch of tho young:
free-silver advocate from Nebraska,
It was an Imposing arenn for tho great debate.
The beautiful hall was bright with sunshlna
and bunting, lively with the shaming forms of
more than 15,000 American oltlrens, whoa
nones were pulsating with the chain of elo
queue anil music, and whose hearts were '
warmed by a sight of the portraits of the party 1
heroes dead and llutng.

and party patriotism as far as it was possible
