Yesterday, without any prevloui an

the columns, It wai resolved by tbc Re
publican! or Wichita that a ratification
" faceting, audi at would give a proper ex
preiaien to the feelings ol tbe party in tbii
county, and old-time, old-tathloned hnrrah
uch as should reflect tbe enthusiasm of
every man for tbe ticket, state and nation
al, and such a ono at would forever put
a quietus upon the Democratic
blow that Sedgwick county would go back
on 1U record, was rctoUed upon. Another
incentive to the move was tbe fact tbat tbo
county and city bad been honored by hav
ing one of its best and truest citizen! placed
upon tbe state ticket.
In tbe afternoon a platform ivh erected
at tbe Intersection of Douglas avenue and
Main street, which was decorated witb
At an early hour in tbe evening tbe
strains of music from steams band and a

Judge Kupglei was Introduced as tbc
first speaker of tbc, evening wbo made a
brief speech of congratulation on tuo fav
oralilo auspices of the hour, favorable to
not only tbe state but to tbe nation. He
alluded to tbe make up of tbe last late state
contention, to tbc high character and the
sober determined action of its
members, admitting tbat seldom
in life had he been so impressed by
a body of men composing s political con
vention, lie next touched upon tbe char
acter of tbe ticket, clean, honest and able
without an exception, such as any man, no
matter wbal his politics, could conscien

took up tbe tariff issue and tbc perform

servator of American Interests aud the pro

American products. lie demanded a free

Col. J. It. Hallowell, United States attor
ney for the district of Kansas, tben follow
ed in a speech of nearly an hour's duration,
which was a masterly and earnest effort,
tie opened up by calling tbe attention of
bis bearers to tbc great contest with which
the American people were confronted. He
declared that there was rto doubt that the
principles enunciated aud upheld by tbe
Republican party to be solely In the inter
est of tbe American people as a whole, and
that James G. Illaine was tbe greatest liv
ing personal exponent of those principles.
Cheers and hurrahs. Hu did not

Bsud illnging, and a lor any of that
kind of work from "the other side
he cared nothing, for. a parllzan committee
In congress, made up partly of ex-rebels
and uncompromising enemies, had exhaus

proud leader's character and had so signal

cast their votes to confirm him in
one of tbe highest positions in
the Republic; and not only that
but Klalnc's own state after all that was
said and done, declared tbe charges to be
calumny aud a lie by electing him three sev
eral times to the htgbet ofllce In their
gift as a state and as a people. As to
John A. Logan, tbat grand and gallant
volunteer soldier of tbc Republic, be had
wiped out every character of Democratic
slander with his own blood from wounds
received on tbc battle fields of his country
fighting for its honor and perpetuity.
Loud and prolonged cheering from a
thousand throats. He next took up the
tariff question and tbc platlorm of the Dem
ocratic party on that question, dcclariuc
tbat their plank was simply a declaration
In favor of a tariff lor buncombe only.
O rest laughter. The Democratic party
may resolve tilt the cows come home, but
they never cn expunge their record
made last winter on tbo Morri
son horizontal bill aud tbe election
of Carlisle on an English free
trade, American depressing platform,
and tbat such men In their advocacy of
such a tarltt were the ciumies ol America,
her liberties and progress, and enemies to
God and their owu families; a policy
wbicb, In destroying tbe manufacturing in
terests ol America, must inevitably depress
the wages ol the Ubo rer and destroy all
living prices for the producer. As to tbc
cry f the Democrats for a change, Its only
Incentive came or a desire for power; they
were out and wanted In, out of meat aud
must appease tbc hunger ol their bangers
on. As to their record, they hadn't made
any in this country except
In spot during the past
twenty-four years and by the help of Ood
and the rotes of tbe Republican party thry
would net be permitted to make any for
the next twenty-four years. This bowl ol
"turn tbe rascals out" came rom a class of
Democrats wboe foreheads were o low
that when they cried the tears rau down
the back of their necks. Cheers and laugh
Mr. He next took up tbe subject of land
grants to railways and gave tbe httory of
the movement showing that it came from
the people and, so I ar as Kansas was con
oerned had resulted, for tbe present gener
ation at least. In all tbat we here sec and
have. No party except ths Republican
party in the history of this nation

be bad remarked tbc ax of reform was laid

1 tree found to be rotton, about as many
Democrats as pretended Republicans jump

Great laughter and cheer?. As to the
blow that Independents and dissatisfied
mugwumps were leaving the party to vote
for Cleveland, for every such desertion tbe
Kepubllcanparty would gaiu at least Alien
loyal, liberty-loving sons of old Erin.
Col. Hallowell closed In a splendid tri

followed by Dr. E. II. Allen, nominee for

THE PITTSBURG CONVENTION.
Pittsburg, July 23. The number
of visitors to Lafayette Hall had
grown so large by 9:30 this morning,
au hour and a half before the time for
calling the Prohibition and Home
Protection convention to order, that
Mayor Dunn, of Pittsburg, chairman
of the committee of arrangements,
found it necessary to request all but
delegates to leave the lloor. This was

feeling aud unity of aim were appa
rent everywhere. The roll of the con
vention was then read.
An address of welcome was deliver
ed by C. D. Kos e, of Pittsburg. Hu
described it as a very great honor and
pleasing duty to welcome to Pittsburg
tho delegates of the National Prohibi
tion convention. Never did a party
more justly plead for help than this
one. The demands of the age could
not be met without the prohibition
party. Tim was tho only political
r party that offered the women of the,
nation equality with men m manag -
iug the affairs of the government. If
asked what is the inlluence of women
j iu public places, his answer was.Lucy
Huyes. Everv nation was interested
' in the convention aud when it came to
; clioe a candidate lor the presidency,
he should be one whose labors have
' richly blessed the cause of prohibition.
Gideon Stewart, chairman of the
national coiumiiice, responded in oe-
half of the convention.
An appropriate selection was next
j recited on "The Use of the Ballot,"
j with much ability and effect by Miss
j Carrie Masher, of Baltimore. After
some delay the report of the commlt-
the , on credf ulials was presented
showing that that there were thiriy-

under the call, while the chairman of patient and heroic struggle for politi-
tlic committee ou credentials explain- '
ed and uetcuded the principle ou
which It is based. There was so much
i uouc and disorder that a delegate
j suggested that they would become a
I Democratic convention before long.
An excited and angry delegate made a
I suggestion that was rather uncompli
mentary to the temporary chairman of
the committee ou pcrmanont organi
zation. In selecting a chairman for
the convention it shall find somebodv t
to preside who is acquainted with par
liamentary rules, and who has the
voico and ability to keep silent iu the
midst of such confusion and turmoil.
The roll of states was called for the
nomination of committees on perma

convention by a rising vote aud with

and principles expressed in the memo-- how our pa-t fealty to the Republican

drawn. In connection with that it
was stated that MUs Willard was ou
the committee on resolutions, and '
would, on consultation with lady
members of the convention, recom
mend such action ou the suffrage mat
ter as might bo agreed upon. Several
resolutions were presented and re
ferred without discussion to the com
mittee ou resolutions, among them a
proposition for a constitutional mend-'
incut removing the distinction of sex
which now limits the franchise, and
one to drop the name of home pro
tection, and declaring the name of the
party to be the National Prohibition
party. A proposition was made to
appoint on the committee on resolu
tions several lady delegates in addition '
to those regularly nominated by the
state delegations. It was argued
against ou various grounds nnd dele
gates moved to lay it on the table as
mere gush. Mn. Hunt, of New York,
declared that the convention had no
more right to add to the committee
fivo women in favor of female suflrage
than it had to add live men who were
opposed to it. The resolution was
laid on the table aud convention at ,
6:45 took roccss to 8 p. rn.
The evening scsion of the conven
tion was prefaced by singing various
hymns aud campaign melodies, and
when the national emblem with a strip
attached bearing the word "Prohibi
tion'' was waved, there were three
cheers given for the old flag aud then

Rev. Mr. M arner, of New York, that
the same divine help which had led to
the riddance of the land from slavery
