Notwithstanding tin. rau.cal iosition as

that only four Senators Teller. Dubois
and Cannon, and Mr.-Uc'vclaiid or Mon

All of Mr. Teller's amendments to the
financial plank were oted down.
There was a pathetic scene in the com
mittce room when the fiuancal plank was
reached and Senator Teller, or Colo'ado.

Interest, ror all present realized that the
hour had arrived when one or the rounders
of the Republican pirty a man who has
been conspicuous in Republican round',
for a third of a ceutur) was taking a step
winch would separate him rrom ins party
fr.ends. Mr. Teller spoke with emotion. ami
thesincerit) or his purpose was so manliest
that his words produced a deep imprevsion.
He spoke or his lonir connection with the
Republican party. It was the party or his
joung manhood, the part) or his choice.
Jtwastheparty with which nebadafrtliatcd
for tlilrt) five )ears. .It was a party that
had Riven him great honors, and he had
served it 10)ally,"but," he exclaimed, in a
voice or deep earnestness, "the time has
come when I shall be obliged to leave it,
if it declares for the single gold standard. '
COMMITTEE HAD NO CHOICE.
lie explained in conclusion that he bad
not originally intended to speak at such
length, but that he w.iscarriect away by the
importance of his subject. Itwaspurely a
matter of conscience and principle. There
was no question or personal ambition In
volved, lie mlghtbe wrong'.lic believed not.
Time alone could tell wnetner he or the
fraraersof this plank were right.
Senator Lodge of Massachunettsetplalned
that no choice was left to the committee
but to adopt the plank In question. He ex
pressed his high appreciation of Mr. Teller
and stated hisnelierth.it he was acting from
conscientious motives, hut that the Itepub
lcans had come to the parting of the ways
and that In separating from Mr. Teller and
Ms associates, he wished to announce that
they carried with them the full respect
of tlie committee.
Mr. Cleveland of Nevada asserted that
with such n plank his Slnte could not be
kept In me ltepublican column.
Mr. Lemon or California said that the
Western men had come here under belief
that the committee would be friendly to
sliver. He explained his connection with
the last three ltepublican campaigns In Cali
fornia: that the) had done wnatthev could
to keep the State in line, but the effect of
tills action would be to wipe out a Republi
can majority of 40,000 and make the State
Democratic. .
Mr. Cannon, of Utah, like Mr. Teller,
created a profound sensation by theearnest
nessor h's remarks. His voice was choked
with emotion several times, and he pro
ceeded wltli great difficulty.
MR. CANNON ALSO OUT.
He pointed out that Utah had been con
vened from a 1 emocratic Territory intoa
Republican State, but that it would be ir
retrievably lost If the part) were com
mitted to the gold standard. He bitterly
deplored the necessit) which compelled
him to have the party or his choice, hut ex
isting circumstances left him no alterna
tive. Mr. Mott of North Carolina stated that be
had gone Into this campaign ror McKinley,
believing that gentleman was friendly to
silver. He had failed to find any utter
ance of McKinlcj's to the contrary. If
Mr. McKinley was unfavorable to silver
there was nothing In his record to show It.
Before a vote was taken on Mr. Teller's
1G to 1 substitute, Mr. Darlington or l'cnn
s)lvanla arose and replied specifically to
benator '1 filer's declaration that tlie Re
publican pirty had rallen under the domi
nation ot Lombard and Wall streets.
Mr.Duho s.or Idaho, alroannounced that
he would follow Ilia associates. Messrs. Tel
ler and. Cannon, in leaving the party, al
though he regretted that necessity com
pelled him to take this step. He spoke at
some length of the luvnlty or the extreme
Western states to the Republican party.
DUBOIS FOLLOWS SUIT.
Each lias now two Republicans in the
Senate, but the same could not be said or
many of the Eastern States, whose repre
sentatives were adopting a course that was
driving the silver men from their party as
sociana. He showed that New York was
represented In the Senate by two Demo
crats, tint Indiana has two and Ohio and
Illinois one each. If this gold plank was
adopted thencpubllcanparty would, ho said,
lose control oi the heuate and not regain
ii in a iuartcT or a century.
Mr. Brewer or Michigan, followed Mr.
Dubois, expressing his regret that the silver
men should feetcompelled to take the course"
they had Indicated. However, he, for one,
felt that the parting of the roads bctweea
Senator Dubois, his associates and their
constituents on the one hand and the Repub
lican party on the other had been reached
when the five Republican silver Senators
took the ground In the United Suites Senate
thatnomca sure forthc relief of the re venues
of the government and the protection of
our Industries should be permitted to be
considered and passed while they -were
members of the Senate unless such meas
ures carried with It a provision for the
free and unlimited coinage of silver.
If there was any one thing the American
people demanded It wasasufflclent re vena
upon which to support the government.
Tne government could not be starved, no
matter what party was In power.
Mr. Hartman, ot Montana, boldly an
ru.Mn.l "' --' "-""Oil

The" Republican platform of 1802 had
declared for gold jnd silver as the standard
money. This platrorm contained a de
claration ror gold only, and the silver
men demanded both The silver men stood
by the party principles, and until such
time as the pjrty might return to the gold
standard they could not support its candi
date. McKinley was an honest man and
would honestly interpret the platform.
NOT MEN BUT PRINCIPLES.
The silver men were not antagonizing
men but principles in this struggle, and
in this campaign ilcKinley would stand
for sold. , ,
Mi. aicssenden of Connecticut explained
why It was necessary to adopt a gold
plank, and expressed his regret at this
ojrrereucc of opinion within the party.
The Tote was then taken -on the Teller
substitute and if was dcreated; ayes, 10;
nays, 41. Those voting-ln the artlrmativc
were the delegates from Colorado, Cali
fornia, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming,
Arizona, Nevada, North Carolina, and New
Mexico.
Before the sense ot the committee was
taken on the gold plunk Mr. LaFUlette of
Wisconsin arose to a personal explanation.
He directed attention to a statement made
by Mr. Teller, that himself and Mr. Gear
or Iowa had performed the principal work
In the preparation or the tarirt law of
1800. which hail been popularly credi'e
to Mr. McKinley. and slid that while the
members or the committee discharged the
duties Intrusted to them Jalthrully. it was
not true that any one man on earth had
prepared as ranch or tt e measure ns Mr.
McKinley. but that his ideas and spirits
dominated evcrvthing in connection with
the bill when the subcommittees were pre
paring the schedules and herore thev were
submitted to Mr. McKinley. who led la
all the. discussion with the same rare abil
ity which enabled him also when it was
taken into the lloise to pass it through
that body without amendment.
THEY DON'T WANT MORTON.
Vigorous Opposition to Suspected
Plan of Mr. Piatt.
St. Louis. June 17. Mr. Milholland and
other anti-PIatt men In the New Tort,
delegation ure' still of the opinion that Mr.
Piatt will endeavor to bring about the
nomination ot Cov. Morton ror the Vice
rres'deucy. Mr. .Milholland has receive
the rollowing dispatch:
"Horm.rsv.ilc'. .. ST.. June 17. To John
E. Milholland: bouthcrn Hotel, St. Loals,

"I do not believe that Gov. Morton's

that he should be nominated as ice Pres

Rejoicing Over the Great Victory for
Sound Money
St. Louis. June 10. Mr. J. H. Mnnlcy
made the rollowing statement tonight:
"The Eastern Republicans have won a
great victory In this convention in forcing
the convention to accept and declare for
the in.ilnteli.uiee or the gold standard.
Thedelegates rrom theNewLugland States,
from New York, New Jersey, Peuiis)l
v aula, and It should be said to their credit,
from some of tlie extreme northwester
States, demanded that the money question
should be met squarely, and this Issue
presented fairly and honestl) to the peo
ple. "Thev ItiRlsted that the resolutions should
explicitly declare against the free coinage
or silver except b) iniernalinual agree
ment with the leading nations of the
world; that the present gold standard
should be maintained. The) did Hut care
what else was said, provided the conven
tion was emphatic in its expressions on
these two main points.
"Mr. Lodge of Massachusetts, led the
fight with his usual earnestness and vigor,
and he is entitled to great credit for the
able manner in which he handled the
contest". The party has taken a stand
for the right, no matter what the result
may be, but in this case to be right will
be popular."

Tarker, P. U. fl. Pinchback, who says he Is

CREDENTIALS COMMITTEE REPORTS.
The report of the committee on creden
tials was men presen.cu o) its chairman,
Mr. Fort ot New Jersey.
The report was In favor of seating the
Hlggins delegates from Delaware, and the
deiegates-.u-iarge and delegates from
from 'leA.lb on tne n&t LciiiiU O) Joun
Grant.
'1 ne rest of the report read by the secre
tar) rccoiuineiiued mat the ro.lof neie-ale-s
ami alternates or tne convention from tne
several States and Territories as pre
pared b) tne national committee ror the
temporary organization be approved as the
permanent roil or this convention.
Mr. Hepburn, or Iowa, was recognized
to present the minority report from thcuim
miitce on cmleutl.il.". It reeomii chdc'i the
seating ot the Addicts delegat-on from
Delaware and of the (June) delegation rrom
'lexas. aim mat Hit otr.er cuutetten cate
acted upon b) the nati'onal committee be
referred to the credentials committee for
full investigation.
The m.norlty report was signed by nine
teen meiniiers or it e commutes.
In prcsentlngit.Mr.Hepburii asserted that
none or the contestants, etcvpt those rrom
uciaware and Texas, had any hearing l.e
fore the committee on credentials, and n
those two cases not one word or the ttsti
nion) had bccnread.andno mcmbcrorihe
convention knew wnat tne merits o7 the
cases were.
More than 160 Republicans, claiming to
be delegates, with their credentials, were
now asking to be heard, in order Hint the
merits or their cases might be proper!- as
certained. n us a bad precedent, he declared, to
permit the national committee to pass rinal
Judgment on the election and qualification
of delegates.
It was a dangerous exercise of power
a nil one Hi itsnouidnothcsubmittedtn. The
minority' therefore recommended that the
delegation from Delaware headed by Ad
d.cksand the delegates rrom Texas headed
by Cuncy be seated, and that as to all the
other contested election cases.'they be re
committed to the committee on credentials,
with Instructions to perform Its duty.
SECURED A ROLL CALL.
Mr. Port, chalrmau or the committee,
was recognized, and mo veil the previous
question, cue report or the commitlee down
to the rinal vote, under the rules of the
House of Representatives. This motion
was seconaea uy Mr. j. Lioyle of Georgia
and by nn unidentified delegate from Ohio.
Mr. Mudd or Mar) land asxed ror a sepa
rate vote on the Delaware report, and was
seconded by the States of Delaware. Cali
fornia and Maine.
The question being now on the ordering
of the previous question, the delegation
from Maine, seconded b) Massachusetts,
Mar) land and Iowa demanded a roll call.
The roll of States was then called and re
sulted as follows:
Yeas. 508 1-2, najs, 339 1-2. So the pre
vious question was ordered.
The votes or Alabama, rlorida, Georgia,
Illinois and Texas were challenged, and on
a poll or tl e delegates the i otej of the dele
gations as announced by the chairman
were changed.
When Iowa announced that it cast its
twenty-six votes against ordering the
previous question, there was so much cheer
ing that the chair remarked that he de
sired on all occasions to give opportunity
ror the exuberant spirits or the convention
to rind vent, but he must ask that this be
done In reasonable time.
When Missouri was readied, Mr. Ncld
ringhaus, one of the delegatesatlarge, was
absent, and a question arose its' to calling
his alternate, Mr. Chaunccy I. Filley
rose to speak to this point and was greeted
with a rouniLof applause, which Indicated
that his rersonal popularity had not been
entirely destroyed by his recent political
"turning down." The alternate, Mr.
Benecke, was round In the body of the
hall and bis vote was recorded. When
Mr. Piatt rose to cast the vote of New
York, he was also greeted with lusty
uieenug.
REPORTED ON PLATFORM.
Tbe chairman ot the committee on reso
lutions was recognized and reported that
tbe platform would be ready at 8 p. m.
Discussion was then commenced under the
previous question on the majority reports,
each sidebelngallo wed twenty minutes.
Mr. Fort, of New Jersey, opened the dis
cission. He said that tbe minority ot tbe
committee made their propositions first, to
open all the contested coses; second to sent
the Addicts delegates from Delaware, and
third to seattbeCuney delegates rrom Texas.
He opposed all tbe propositions. The com
mittee on credentials bad by a vote ot 31
to 14, determined to accept the roll as
made up by thenatlonal committee, with the
exception of Delaware and Texas on which
the national committee has taken no action.
One hundred and sixty men, be said, bad
appeared before the national committee by
counsel or otherwise and bad asked to be

dentials could give them, unless It stayed

MR. FORT'S SPEECH.
And the committee recommended that
tho Biggins delegation be seated because
the delegates beaded by Addlcks did
not renresent the RsDublleans nf nlH.'

laughter.)

united Slates Senator to be elected from

"The fact of the' matter, is simply this;

lieved, under the evidence, that Mr. Ad
dlcks and hi partners in Delaware were
highwaymen on tbe way ta political for

applause.) I
Mr. Ycrkes of Kentucky,-; was heard
briefly on the same side. 1
The other -side or the question was sup
ported by Mr. Hepburn ot.liiwa. who spoke
for the minority of tbe committee on i rc
deutlals. He appealed to! the .convention
for fairness. The American nennln Ir.vmi
fairness. He repeated that there had
lieen no hearing on tbe intents of tbe
1C0 contested cases. j(C(ieers.)
HEPBURN" WA8 BAtSCASTIC.
"Here," lie said, speuklifgwit those qn
tesced cases, "Is tne aslouUiung spectaue
la view of all the traditions ot the pa.-ty
of a Republican national convention tramp
ling under its feet, rdtalessiy, remorseies
ly, the doctrines of .equity and Justice to
willed tlie Renublicail nartv has cleiiired
itself during all thef. years of Its eventful.
existence." : Applause.)
As to the Delaware case, Mr. Hepburn
asserted tnat tuere liHet been no prunr of
any character presented or considered by
the committee on credentials Impugning
the Republicanism or Mr. Addlcks, wncre
as Mr. Addlcks himself had assured the
committee that he had voteil for Abraham
Lincoln and for every Democratic (correct
ing himself amid s'muts of laughter) every
Republican President since.
Mr. Hepburn spoke contemptuously of
some persons who had denied Mr. Ad
dlcks' "Republicanism" describing him as
"a little KeiitleiiMH" quite voluble-he
mlgut also kit volatile, where Intellectual
proportions were In exact ratio to the
ge.igrapniu lines or ins state. (Laughter.)
"That gentleman wastheonlvnersnn who
had asserted that the Addlcks' delegates
were not Republicans."
WAS THE CONSTITUENCY.
It was the constituency, Mr. Hepburn
argued, ihat determined tne qualifications
or Its represriitath es In theconv ention. Tbe
people or Delaware had not sent here to
representtheinAuthonyHlgglns, wnomthcy
bad repudiated, who they had said should
never serve thein, whom they had refused
to place confidence In, and who, they had
said, could not properly represent them or
wield their power at this convention.
Hut tbe majority ot (he committee on
credentials as ked the conventionlo say that
Mr. Hlggins shou'd wield tlie power ot tbe
people of Delaware, whether they wished
or not. Was that Republicanism? Whom
would Mr. Hlggins represent the people of
Delaware who said they would not lave

REPORT OF THE MINORITY.
They Declare the Committee's Action
a Dangerous Precede t.
Tho full text ot tnV'mtnority report of
the committee on credentials was as fol
lows: The undersigned members of your com

port of the majority of the committee, in
this:
1. We are unwilling to accept tbe roll of
delegates as made up by the natlornl com
mittee, 'ihe ii.itiuii.it committee did not
attempt to consider the merits of the cases
of any of the 160 odd contestants, only
tbe regularity ot credentials presented being
passed upon. 80 that none of these con
testants except tL'ose from DeLiware and
those of tbe State .it large from Texas
bad bad hearing on the tacts Involved by
any competent tribunal and in those two
cases no part of the evidence was read or
considered by the committee. The com
mittee has persistently voted down propo
sitions to Investigate the cases from Texas
other than those from the State at large.
W?? frm Cal'fornia, from Louisiana, from
Alabama, .find from the Twelfth district
of Missouri.
We deem It a roostdangerous precedent
to permit tbe national committee to puss
final Judgment on the election and quali

8L Louis, Mo, June 17. The corridors
ot the boulhern Hotel are filled tonight
with. Vice Presidential gossip.
It is openly asserted at New York head
quarters, auu it Is believed Dy lolititians
fcene-rally, that Governor Morton will ac
cept Ihe nomination if the convention
decides to honor him with the tecond
place on tlie ticket.
The riatt men, In the New Tork dele
gation do Uot'ingree in their conclusions
resiectlng Governor Morton's chances.
Ardent Morion men, such as Congressman
Qulgg, for example, believe that he will
be nominated. Mr. Lauterbach Is non
committal and declines to be ouotnl. but
hels apparently ot Mr. Quigg's mind.
There are other of tbe Piatt men, how
ever, who either profess Ignorance of
Governor Morton's prospects, or who sadly
admit that the outlook is not encouraging.
On one point nil Ihe New Yorkers are
agreed. They will not present the Gov
Crnor'H name unless they are sure of bis
success ,
They do not intend, as one of tbe numlr
expressed it tonight, to put Morton up a
second time to he knocked down. Mr.
Lauterbach figures that after the sliver
men shall have bolted tbe convention to
morrow the exact number of delegates re
maining will be 84, or whom 443 ure
necessary to 11 choice.
MORTON WOULD WIN.
If the ligures presented by Gov. Morton's
friends are; correct, he will win by a bare
majority. If Mr. Lauterbach's estimate is
realizej. The anti-Morton forces do not
sec how tbe New York Governor tan
fecure sufficient strength to land him a
winner.
They concede him the delegates from
Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island;
all but seventeen of New York, one-third
or Ohio, one-half of the Missouri dele
gation; all but five In Penns)lvania. all In
Michigan, and a ccattering Tote in a
umuuci 01 oine-r amies.
The result of the vcte upon ordering the

ot New Jersey. He Is the choice of (he
Ohio men. and of very considerable nnmtier
ot McKinley's followers In other delega
tions, and ttiere are many shrewd political
observers who believe tonight that he
will be nominated.

cut, aremikirg .111 rarmst cam as In his

There was an informal conference cf
leading mrrolcrs of tbe Nebrn;.kii delega
tion le night to consider the octirabillty of
Loldiug a caucus on the Vice Presidential
nomination. . .
a iniuoisvni reached was that each dele
gate should be permitted to eictiM bis
own preference in u.eci.ueullon,ni 11 tLat
no attempt should be made to bind the
delegates to any one candidate. John L.
Webster, chairman f tLe delegation, said

others for Henry Clay Evans. The latter,
I think, is me ravorncv
AGREE ON NO ONE.
It was reported about the hotels to
night that word had gone out troin the
McKinley headquarters that Gen. Hobart
had been oellnitel) agreed upon us the
Ohio man's runnimr mjte. and while
people close to Mr. Hanna denied that this
was a loci, it was noticeable that man)
or the A.cKinley pfoplc In itnrcrent dele
gations, notably lillncls, who had hitherto
been reticent concerning the tecond platu
on the ticket, were advocating the New
Jersey man's claims.
Friends of II. Clay Evans of Tennessee
were emphatic In their declarations that
tbe McKinley managers would express no
preferenco, but would allow their dele
gates to manifest their own prccllvitlcs
untettered. An Eastern politician, who
hasguaged the pulse of many of the dele
gations, said at 10 p. ra.:
"It looks to me that Gen. Hobart is as
far away from the gJal as Gov. Morton. I
think it will bea trec-ior-allrace tomorrow."
It Is probable that on the first ballotfor
Vice President, the twenty-rour votes of
Virginia will be cast solidly rorGcn. James
A. Walker as a compliment to that dls-tlngjMic-d
hero or the Confederacy.
UNANIMOUS FOR MORTON.
After that has been done it is claimed the
vote will be almost unanimous for Mr.
Morton if bis name shouVd be placed 111
nomination. With Mr. Morton not a candi
date, Mr. Hobart, otNevvJersey.ls expected
to gut about twenty out ot th twenty four
votes.
1 be Ohio delegation basheld no caucus on
the ice rnMOeiitlal question and none will
be held. Each member will be permitted to
vote as he pleases. Mr. Hanna has no wish
in tbe matter, and positively declined to
intimate what be would like to see done.
It was given out at the Ohio headquarters
tonigat tbat-Mr. Hanna considered every
pledge kept and every Instruction obocd
wnen me oeiegaies suouia cast tneir vote
for William McKinley for President of tbe
United States.
Efforts have been made to secure some
intimation from Mr. Hanna as to what
his ideas are with respect to the nomina
tion or a running mate, but to all comers
Mr. Hanna is discreetly silent. ?! is ad
mitted at the Ohio headquarters that be
tween 18 and 20 of the 46 votes or that
State will be cast for Mr. Morton for Vice
President. The remainder will probably
be divided equally between Mr. Hobart
and Mr. Evans.
