THE SECOND SESSION.

Philadelphia, June 20. Not another
person could have been forced Into the
sreat ball In which the Republican Na
tional convention Is belnK held on the
outskirts of this city today when the
temporary chairman rapped for the
opcnlmj of the second session of the
body. Every one of the 15,000 chairs
was occupied and the walls were lined
by thousands of persons standing up.
Tho Indifference of yesterday had
Klven place to enthusiasm. An eager
ness 'was noted on every one's face nnd
the air was more like that of other
great Republican gatnerlngs. The
convention today had tho nppearance
of a body that has something of na
tional Importance on hind.
The convention Is settling down to
work, but even with the greatest ef
fort It nrxy not bo possible to renom
inate the president today. The time
will be occupied with oratory, Tho
nominating speeches are to be long,
and a dispute about tho rule and
organization Is probable. The reading
of the platform must alo bo a part
Of today's proceedings.
It is plain that the convention Is
looking f oi ward to tomonow with
even nivater Interest than It looked
forward in today. It wilt bo seen this
afternoon whether Senator Hanna and
his frieiiil.i are able to concentrate
unougn delegates on any one to pro
cure a majority on the llrst ballot for
vice president. If there Is no choice on
the llrst ballot, through tho failure to
unite, then a general break for Roose
velt on the second can hardly be pre
vented. Itii temper of the convention was
jhown twice today, once when Gover
nor Roosevelt escorted Senator Lodgo
to the platlorm. and once when one
of the speakers. In noticeably tiresome I
remarks, coupled Roosevelt's name '
with MeKInley's. Both tjmes tho clem- j
onstration was pronounced. i
The uddtess. of Senator Lodge ns
permanent chairman caused the great
est enthusiasm. It wai believed yes
terday that Fenator Wolcott had ex
hausted the subject of i arty Interest
which had been touched In platform
oratory, but Senator Lodge's speech
was remarknble in that It did not
cross Wolcott's at any point. Th-
cleat -cut. classical sentences brought
into prominence every point tho
speaker wlrtied to make nnd caught
the delegates evciy time. Tho speech
was brief. It icr,ulrcd only nbout halt,
an hour to deliver it, but it drew
forth tumultuous applause.
Mr. Lodge showed splendid carrying
power, piomlslng well for the trying
to use Doctor

ache. Don't forget
that over hulf

lng. His oratory li not of the Moivl
tpe, Lut Its earnestness, beauty of
diction and tho frequent tributes to the
achievements of the party nppu lied to
his audience and In ought constant and
long continued applause.
Ills reference to Hawaii and the
presence of representatives of that, new
acquisition 'brought the delegates to
their feet in a lusty greeting to the Ha
wallans. When ho referied to tho "In
famy" In Kentucky the delegates fiom
that state yelled thnli- approval Hid the
other stattH added 11 sympathetic de
monstration. Mr, Lodge's references to tho policy
of the government toward Cuba Mid
the Philippines brought out fteqtien:
manifestations of approval. Ills lu 11
Hant tribute to the American Koldicu
lighting in the tropics closed with iho
well rounded sentence: "They ai our
soldiers and we will sustain them."
It was the signal for a hearty Je
monstrntion, in which Cionei-al Gibson,
of Tennessee, was si-e-n amid the dele
gates waving aloft his cane, topped by
a silk hat.
Senator Lodge concluded at 1.37. He
had spoken fifty minutes. Then fol
lowed the usual gavel presentations.
Colonel Chlltls, of Rhode Island, In a
neat speech, presented an historic
gavel, the mahogany from the capital
at Providence, the bionse from the
yacht Columbia, which defeated the
Shamrock at the International yacht
races last fall. A young delegate from
Kentucky, John W. Langley, mounted
the platform and in an eloquent little
speech presented another gavel carved
from a tree In the valley of the I'.lg
Sandy, beneath which General Gar
field Is said to have knelt at the battle
of Middle Creek and ul:od the God of
Rattles to give the Union foices vic
tory. He stirred the delegates with his
eloquence and they cheered when 1'
concluded with the statement that l.o
presented the gavel as 11 pledge of the
continued devotion of Kentucky to the
pilnelpks of Republicanism and a
hostage that tne state would this fall
give its electoial vote to McKlnley and
L. K, Olson, of Minnesota, prosenttd
n table which had been usi d at the Re
publican national conventions at Minn
eapolis and St. Louis. Senator Lodge
received each of these presentations
with a graceful speech.
General Hlngham, of Pennsylvania,
was now recognized to present the un
animous report of the coinmruee on
rules. He said that in the main the
rules of four and eight years ago had
been adopted, leaving It for the con
vention to make any marked depart
ures from the former procedure.
Senator Quay, in n light suit, with
vest unbottonod, was recognized ns the
leading of the report was concluded,
nnd was greeted enthusiastically ns ho
stepped Into the middle aisle to offer
an amendment to the rules. This em
bodied tho proposition to reduce the
icpresentatlon from several states, giv
ing one delegate for each 10,000 votes
c.iHt, with four delegates-ut-large for
each state. There were calls for Mr.
Quay to take the platform, but h
shook his head and sent to the cleik's
desk a lengthy statement showing the
elfect of the proposed new rule.
Mr. Quay had too much expeilein-r-nt
national conventions to attempt to
make himself heaul. The clerk pro
ceeded to lead the statement of rep
resentation on the basis of the vote "of
1S91. While It was being toad a jib -turesque-Iooklng
old man with long,
white beard niose in the Arkansas
delegation. Ho was the famous "Poker
Jack" Mel'liue. lie proteste 1 against
the proposed amendment, but was
tilled out of order.
Senator Qwi. himself, finally Inter
rtipted the loading, which was long,
but ho could not be heard, and Sena
tor Poraker suggested that he take th
platform. The demand was immedi
ately taken up b the vast nm:,e:.co
and, followed by a roai of cneeis. Col
onel Quay moved up to the stage. For
s-eial minutes ho could not proceed,
owing to the demonstration. When
order bad been restoiod, Mr. Quay
suggested that as the statement wis
long and would be printed In the after
noon papers, action upon his piopol
tion, which only affected Rules 1 and
12, be postponed until tomorrow, nnl
the remainder of tho report be adopted.
He backed his suggestion with a mo
tion. The motion raised a storm of
protest from the southern delegates.
Delegates from all tht- southern
states weie on their feet, demanding
recognition. Delegate McCall, of Ten
nessee mounted a chair und, amid the
plaudits of his associates, denvuuled
the ilsht to bo heard before any ai
tlon was taken upon the Quay uniend
ment. John II. Lynch, a colored delegate
from Mississippi, stood on his tlri'i
and secured leeognltlon for a substi
tute to the Quay amendment. This in
cited that in any state whore the tight
to vote was abridged because of racn,
color or previous condition of" servi
tude, the representation In congress
should be reduced In proportion to the
extent of the disfranchisement.
A point of order was promptly made
that tho substitute was not germane,
nnd Chairman Lodge sustained the
At this point the convention threat,
ened to get Into a parliamentary
tanglo over the adoption of the rules
and proposed amendments.
Mr. Quay's motion finally prevailed
that Rules 1 and 12, with his amend
ment, go over until tomorrow, af,ter
which the other rules were agreed to
With this out of the way, Scnntor
Fairbanks, of Indlann, chairman of the
committee on resolutions, was recog
nised to present the platform to the
convention. The Indiana senator re
ceived a Mattering reception ns he
mounted the stage, but when he began
to read the declaration of principles,
scores of delegates and alternates got
up and began filing out of the hall.
The confusion became so great that
Senator Fairbanks was unable to pro
ceed, and Senator Lodge was compelled
to conio forward und appeal for order.
"This Is a matter of the most vital
Importance," said he. "It Is the an
nunciation of the pilnclples upon which
the Republican party Is to stand,"
This appeal had some effect. Many
of the delegates leturnod to their seats,
but tho thousands who could not hear
Senator Fairbanks grew restless and
ninny left the hall for a breath of air.
While the hum of conversation con
tinued throughout the reading of the
platform, Intctest In tho document
manifestly Increase, as tho reading
proceeded. Senntor Fairbanks made
strenuous effort to make himself heard.
Ovation to Depew.
Chauncey M. Depew, desiring a bile
to eat. went In search of It. As he
worked his way thtough he throngs
vhlch surounded the delegate. on nil
Bides ho was recognized nnd greeted by
a storm of cheeis. So distinct was t-lie
interruption that Chali man Lodge was
forced to appeal to the -pi,clator3 In
oider that the business of the conven
fon might be transacted. Senator
Fi.lrbnnks concluded the leading of
tho platform nt 2.r0. He moved that
the platfoim bo adopted and the mo
tion was unanimously adop'.ed.
The announf 'inert of tho adoption
of the platform wr.p received with en
Chali man Lodge then called for an
nouncements from tho various dele
gations of national committeemen and
Senator Foraker, of Ohio, was In the
center of the main aisle with his hand
raised for recognition. I was nbout
to move to adjourn said he, "but I
withhold that motion until the roll of
states can be called."
Tho call was then begun, each of
the well known and prominent men as
their names were anonunced being
greeted with applause.
When foimer Senator Quay was an
nounced as the choice of the Pennsyl
vania delegation for member of the
national committee, half of the dele
gates and hundiedrt of spectators were
on their feet In an Instant, cheering ns
For tho first time In the history of
American polities Hawaii was called
on the roll of a national convention.
When the newly acquired territory was
called Colonel Samuel Parker rose and
made his announcement in a full res
onant voice. He was leeolved with
tiiincudoua npplause. Harold M. Sew
all, the son of the Democratic vice
presidential candidate of 1S90, was an
nounced as Hawaii's member of the
Republican national committee.
"The Addlcks faction," of Delaware,
which was olllelally recognized last
night by the committee on credentials,
was in great glee today. The recog
nized delegation organized this after
noon nnd also elected J. Edward Ad
dlcks as the national committeeman
fiom the Illue Hen state.
The resolution today Introduced by
ex-Senator Quay In the convention re
lating to the re-arrangement of the
basis of representation In future na
tional conventions, has created a sen
sation, particularly among the dele
gates from the Southern stntes. To

aroused by the contest for tho vice

Addresses by W. L. Thatcher and
special to the Scranton Tribune.
Harford. June 20. The one hun
dredth anniversary of tho Congrega
tional church was celebrated Juno 15.
It was a giand success. Not a stone
was left unturned and the result was
very complimentary to the committee
who had the work In hand. W. L.
Thatcher gave the historical address.
He Is a historian of tare nullity and
as usual it was very interesting. In
his address we notice many remark
able changes and one thing which at
tracts utir attention Is the fact that
dining the one hundred years only six
ministers have boen called to this
church. Rev. Adam Miller having
served lrom 1S2S to 1RS1,
Words of greeting 11 ml remomhinnco
were iihen by Hev. W. S. Frlteh, pas

Never has tho bcautllul High school
auditorium with Its cool, white walls
nnd Its Imposing senso of slzo pte
sented such a splendid appearance as
It did last night, when a class of
twenty-aeven fair young ladles and
one studious looking young man were
graduated from the Training school.
The decorations, though not espec
ially elaborate, cun best be described
by the adjective, tasty. The seats on
which the class was seated were
draped In old gold, blue and whltf,
the class colors, which were also fes
tooned overhead and caught at the
celling with a masnlllcent bell of wild
flowers. Just over the front of the
stngc was suspended a sign bearing
the school motto, "Excelsior," and sur
lounded with colored Incandescent
lights. The back and front of the
stngc were banked with palms.
Tho graduates were sealed on the
stngo arranged In thtee rows, and,
with one exception, all attlied In
dainty grwns of white. After R.tuer's
orchestra, which was seated just In
front of the platform had rendered an
overture. Professor Grant led In the
recltlnt: of the Lord's prayer. The
class sang a selection nailer the able
leadership ot Mrs. Annie Hnrnea, nnd
then the speaker ot the evening. Dr.
A. E. Winshlp, of Hoston, was Intro
duced 'iy AIlss Olmstend, the prlncl
pay ot the Training school.
A LEADING EDUCATOR.
Dr. Winshlp is one of the leading
educators of the country, being tho
editor of the Journal of Education
He Is a (incise una logical talker,
possessed of an exceedingly rapid but
clear dellveiy, und a fltm and abound
ing o v for each and everything
American. He took for his subject
"Character, Capacity and Training,"
nnd held the close nttentlon of the
large audlerce present for over an
In commencing his remarks he em
phasized the fuct that training capa
city is more important than training,
as no amount of the latter can take
the place of character or ability.
"America, more thnn any other na
tion needs trained men and women
at the present time," said he. "It Is
an urgent nnd national need, but we
will never find the time, I fear, when
the American people w'U appreciate
The si uker then ga.'o some won
derful word pictures ot tho tremen
dous progress in the far west during
the past quarter of a century, nnd told
of the wonderful oppoitunlties thus
opened up and taken advantage of by
trained joung men nnd women. "What
was good enough for us In the lino
of education," said he, ' is not good
enough for our children, and tho man
who says so is lit only for an insane
"Tlere mny be one man in a thous
and stmt out and make a success for
himself withcut training, but T say
that the man who wouh. let 99') fail
for want of preparation that one might
succeed without It is a criminal In
the sight of God and man "
ti:ri:e leading countries.
The three greatest nations of the old
world, England, Germany and France,
ench owes Its supremacy to some one
thing, he explained. England owes
her's to her economic philosophy, Ger
many to her intellectuality, and France
to what he termed a social rhvthm.
America possesses none of these quali
ties except the Intellectuality, he said,
but "she has accepted as her mission
the solving of the problem of humani
ty. "America more than any of tho
nations of the world seeks to
train every one of the people." At this
point the doctor, guided, perhaps, by a
certain pride for his native heath,
burst forth into a recountal of the
manifold glories of Massachusetts in
the line of Its treatment of workmen
and also on educational lines. He ex
plained that the wages paid in Massa
chusetts are 79 per cent, higher than
tho wages paid In the rest of the Uni
ted States, this condition of affairs
having been brought around, he con
tends by a splendid nnd perfect system
In conclusion he drew a lesson from
a story told of Nansen, the great Artie
explorer. "There was one day," he
said, "when the ship Fram, which Nan
sen had modelled nnd labored over for
three years, was caught between two
gigantic Icebergs, both of which were
pressing In on her. The crew, becom
ing fearful unto death, got the sledges
In readiness for escape and were Just
on the point of leaving when they
found that Nansen was missing.
"Upon calling for him, he answered
from the cabin. 'What are you doing?'
they asked, and Nansen replied that
he was taking a bath. 'Are you not
afraid that tho ship will be crushed In?'
they asked him, and ho replied, 'No, It
was for this I built her,
"Is is too much to hope that in the
future when there comes a strain on
your character, or your moral nature
and on your religious faith, Is it tog
much too hope that you will no quietly

the mob spirit nbout you and when
asked why you are so cnlm you will
reply: ' It was for this that wo wero

After an excellent soprano solo by
Miss Catherine Smith the members of
the class came forward to tho front of
the platform and received their dlplo
mns, tied with tho class colors, from
Chairman A. L, Francois, of the high
and training school committee. Mr.
Francois, in a brief address, congratu
lated the class In behalf of the board
of control and urged them to be. ever
Two songs were then sung by tho
class and the closing number was given
by the orchestra. This was Souse's
new march, "The Man Uehind the
Gun," which Is meeting with such pop
ular favor In Europe, For a half hour
or so following the conclusion of the
programme the members of tho class
conducted an Informal leveo on tho
stage, receiving the congratulations of
their numerous friends.
