"I think It Is one on which alt Demo?

Mr. Hill used nearly the same words,
ffhey are both cnthunlastlc.
Senator Daniel, chairman of Ilia Com
?.lttoe on Resolutions, had a gieat Avo,'
Jo do with framing tho Instrument. ?
Tho contest between Senator Daniel and
Mr. Bryan In tho committee thin morning
was tho feature of a Btormy session Mr.
Bryan was opposing a gold standard
plank. Major Do-nlol advocated ft In a
speech of impassioned eloquence. A?
times ho grew personal; he chafed thai
J-ryan had reviled every Democrat en?
dorsed by an* State for the presidency.
There were many Interruptions at this
7>olnt, and the confusion became eo great
Senator Daniel had to suspend. Ho "waK
Jn a bad temper. He-faced Bryan nquaro
Ty and several times,' shook hl< ?in?er
~-i?t.-hhn. Mr. Bryan sat stnlllig and
chewing- gum. Once, when tbe contusion
was no great, ho appealed to tho audi?
ence to keep qulot and allow Iwnainr
Daniel to proceed.
Mr. Bryan won out. Indeed, ho domi?
nated the committee, suid the platform
Is nearly what he wanted It to ce. Mr.
Bryan has a wonderful hold on tho con?
vention. Let him stand up cither on tho
jostrum or with his delegation and thcio
Is at once a roar of applause.

SESSION. OF COMMITTEE.
Extended Through Silent Hours,
With Many Striking Scenes.
ST. LOUIS, July 8.?After a continuous
session of sixteen hours, tho Committee
on Resolutions shortly before noon per?
fected tho platform, whleh It presented to
the convention In tho evening. As agreed
upon by the full committee; th,B nlat"
form was a compromlso acceptable to
nil of the interests involved. It was
adopted unanimously, It may bo said
in general to have been a concession to
the Bryan wing of tho parly without
In any way stultifying tho declarations
uf tho conservatives. The absence of
any pronouncement upon tho financial
question was most significant, and dis?
closed the utter Impnslhlllty of finding
any declaration upon this subject accept?
able to nil.
Many Dramatic Scenes.
During the watches of the long night
in the committee room there wore many
dramatic scenes, not. the least strlkijig
of which was the verbal encounter be?
tween Senator Hill and Mr. Bryan. It
occurred while Mr. Bryan w?h engaged
in making one of his many attacks upon
the gold standard plunk, as framed by the
subcommittee, lie was wrought up to
high tension, when, approaching tho New
York leader, and pointing his finger dan*
cerougly near the nose of that gentleman,
"You ought to have a gold platform to
go with the gold candidate) you are forcing
upon (lie country."
Mr, Hill replied that, ho knew nothing
as to Mr. Parker's monetary views.
"Do you mean to say." .demanded tho
Nebras'kan, "that you don't know Judge
J'iii..er's financial views?"
"f mean just, that," responded Mr, Hill.

SCENE IN THE HALL WHEN MR. LITTLETON NOMINATED PARKER
WHAT THE LEADERS
THINK OF PLATFORM
(Special to The Times-Dispatch.)
. St Louis. Mo..-July. 8. 1904.
By Senator John W. Danlel-"Tho Resolutions Commltteo made a unanimous re?
port and all (actions are harmonious In the convention. ? The_platform Is not entirely
Pleasing to any one man, but It is. on tho whole, a just and fair expression of the
Kments of a conservative and reunited Democracy. All reference to the money
question were voted out of the platform. The platform, as reported, should enable,
the Democrats to win a decided victory In November. Tho Vice-Presidency Is stll
in the air. There seems no decided trend to any ono man and It Is possible his name
has not been mentioned."
Rv Wm Jennlnos Bryan?"I am fairly well satisfied with the platform. I have
had an ^rtuni y to present some matters as I desired and L have had >o make
concessions InSa Instance*, in order to get what 1 wanted In others I will cer
?amiy support the platform. Wo aro all satisfied. We have al wanted somo things
nut in tnarthe committee has rejected, but on the whole, the document is perfectly
satisfactory. You know you can't get everything you want.
By David B. HIII-"T am perfectly satlsfloti: Of co irse, there are things,'ttjai I
wanted in and thought should go In, but In politics, it Is to give and take, and I am
Taking should have liked to boo an expression on finances In the platform, but
he majority thought otherwise, and neither Mr. Bryan's plank nor mine was adopt?
ed Wo did not put in an income tax plank and wo changed only slightly the tariff
plank. 1 do not see why Jtidgo Parker cannot stand ou tho platform. I am said
to be ono of his friends and 1 have said I am satisfied."
By August Belmont?"I nm saUsfled that the platform Is ono on which Judge
Barker can stand. 1 have always been quite willing to have a platform without any
financial plank In It. 1 believe tho people, have llnally settled tho matter, and it is
superfluous for any party to merely reiterate."
By Mr. Cordmeyer, Chairman New York State Committee?"Parker rannot stand
for such a. platform, and if ho Is nominated, ho will bu compolled. to deal with tho
financial question in his lPlter of acceptance."
By Mr. Oharles F. Murphy, Tammany Leader-"I don't think) the platform has
Improved Barker's chances, but, at course, nobody knows Judgo Parker's views."
Bv Former Senator Pettloxow? "Wo have prepared it treatise rather than a
platform, and have succeeded In producing a large volume without saying anything."
Bv Governor Thomas, of Colorado?"I succeeded In securing the Incorporation
of 1 ho greater part of my labor declaration and on the whole; I am satisfied with the

delighted with It." . _

In getting a platform without any person in It."

"Have never asked him?"
"I have not. I have never sought to
secure an expression of His views, and ho
has never sought to convey them to me.
I only know that. l,e Is a Democrat and a
high-minded and patriotic man, and 1

on this, as upon other matters of public
P0Mry'Bryan then demanded to. know
when the gold plank had been decided
pop and why It had not been incorpo
rateri in the Now York platform.
Mr Hill replied that the matter had
first'been discussed at the meeting of
the delegation about ten days ago, and
that the declaration was the result of
insistence by nther members of the dele?
gation than himself.

National Convention to-night, adopted a
platform by a viva voce vote and listened
to nominating speeches for President.
Judge Alton B. Parker was named by
Martin W. Littleton and William Ban
doiph Hearst by D. M. Delmas. Both
orators were applauded at length. Anti
Parker delegations attempted to create
enthusiasm for their candidate, but the
Parker men remained undisturbed and un?
concerned. Hearst delegates paraded the
hall, but tho showing was small In com?
parison with the Parker procession, which
Nominating speeches for Gray, of Dela?
ware, and other favorite son candidates,
and seconding speeches for both Parker
and Hearst, occupied the convention fov.
several hours. The'convention seats about
10,600 persons, but from appearances hun?
dreds more had been admitted, until the
crowded condition of the hall endan?
gered every life. \
As soon as''the convention had be?n
called to order, Chairman Clark an?
nounced that tho report of the Commit?

Daniel read tho report as chanman of
the-committee. Tho confusion w.w ao
