Platform and Vice Presidency.
All day long the platform question and
Vice Presidency have gone hand in hand.
The convention Is overwhelmingly in fa
vor of dropping free silver out of. the
back window and seems to favor taking
a candidate for Vice President frorn New
York. "Any man New York wants" is the
favorite expression heard. If the platform
( is not modified Bryan can name any can
didate he wants, and his choice, is Towne.
Shiveley .declared to the Indiana dele
gates to-day that it would be Impossible
for him to run. They took him at his
word and Shiveley's name will be
mentioned again. Of- course there is a
large number of Vice Presidential possi
bilities, but, as predicted in The Call, the
field has narrowed down to a New York
man or Charles A. Towne. Towne will,
be nominated if Bryan has his way. OC
course, there is always the possibility of
Hill's nomination by stampede. He is
still the Roosevelt of.tU© convention.
Majority in Opposition.
From innermost national committee cir
cles it was learned to-night that a care
ful canvass of the delegates was com
pleted to-day. This canvass shows that
more than two-thirds of the delegates are
strongly opposed to the reiteration of the
free silver ratio of 16 to 1. They are will
ing to accept a reafflrmation. but do not
wish to go further. Moreover t far more
than a majority of the delegates assert
with much assurance that neither Mr.
Bryan nor any other man can so far dic
tate to them as to compel them to accept
a reiteration of the free silver plank. They
hope to win next November, and believe
that It cannot be done unless conservat
ism rules the committee on" resolutions.
Senator Jones, chairman of the national
committee, who is himself a firm believer
in the free coinage of silver, and who is
one of the stanchest friends of Mr.
Bryan, is convinced that the latter will
make the mistake of his life if he under
takes to force radical free silveripm upon
the convention. Senator Jones has com
municated his views to Bryan.
Towne or a New Yorker.
Late to-night there is an interesting 1 re
port in circulation, and finds many be
lievers, to the effect that Bryan has tele
phoned Chairman Jones that he is In
honor bound to stick to free silver, but
that If the convention sees fit to modify
the silver plank he can not help It, an.l
in that caee would prefer some New York
man as his running mate. However, if
the convention declares for 18 to 1 he
hopes Towne will be nominated.
The New>york delegates are confident
the convention is averse to the 16 to 1 dec
laration, and they are sharpening their
knives preparatory to a terrific fight be
tween Hill and Croker. If the personal
choice of neither Hill nor Croker 6eems
likely to be nominated, and a stampede to
Hill is in prospect Croker will undoubt
edly make a^n , appeal to Bryan to stop
the Hill boom, for Croker has been loyal
to Bryan. To-night there is a prevailing
belief that the Croker-Hill factional
strife will eliminate New York from the
contest. -It is argued that the convention
will never . stampede to Hill when It ' Is
known that Croker and powerful : Tam
many Hall have their knives out for him.

BRYAN- DETERMINED TO
JAM FREE SILVfR DOWN
TIE DELEGATE THROATS
Continued From First Page,
KANSAS CITY, July 2.— The National
Democratic Committee held its first ses
sion to-day, but did little business beyond
appointing sub-committees to hear the
contests from Montana, Oklahoma, In
dian Territory and the District of Colum
bia. All these sub-committees except that
dealing with the District of Columbia con
test heard arguments to-day, some of
them reaching conclusions and others
postponing action until to-morrow.
Special attention was -given to the Mon
tana case. The members of the sub-com
mittee say no conclusion was arrived at,
-but the friends of Senator Clark claim
that a majority of the sub-committee de
clared for the seating of the delegation
bearing the Senator's name.
The District of Columbia contest will bo
heard to-morrow and all the sub-commit
tees will make the reports to the full com
mittee during the day. The committee
postponed action upon the selection of a
temporary chairman until to-morrow.
The Montana case turned upon the right
of the chairman of the State Central
Committee to fill vacancies on the com
mittee. Mr. Cockrell. a Daly man, held
the position of chairman, and attempted
to fill these vacancies. The Clark mem
bers of the committee objected to this
proceeding, and Mr. Corbett insisted that
the committee should have been allowed
to fill the vacancies. ¦, It was upon this
point and for this reason ' Mr. Cockrell
was deposed by , committeemen> from
fourteen.;of the-, twenty-four counties of
the State. Mr. Corbett also contended
that nineteen of the twenty-four counties
of the State were represented in the Clark
convention, and that a majority of the
uncontested delegates sat in this conven.
tion. He said that no place in Butte had
been designated in which the convention
should be held, so that one place was as
regular as another.
Mr. Corbett asserted this was not a con,
test between Clark and Daly, but a con
test between the people and the copper
trust, which was attempting to control
the political affairs of the State.
Governor Smith devoted his argument
largely to showing that the practice In
the State was favorable- to permitting th\
State chairman to nil vacancies. ThU
practice had prevailed for twenty years,
and he asserted that- no objection had
been made to the appointments wher»
Clark men had been selected to fill the
vacancies. The State convention was held
at a place selected by the committee hav.
ing that matter In charge and there was
no misunderstanding on this point at the
time. Governor Smith arpued at length
for recognition of the practice of the State
as the controlling factor in settling the
controversy over the tilling of vacancies
In the State committee.
The sub-committee adjourned without
reaching a final decision. It is understooo

the dayt Mr. Shiveley of Indiana retired
finally and imperatively, so announcing
his decision at the caucus of the Indiana
State delegation, where he was taken at
his word. The Hill movement, on the
other hand, showed decided progress, not
withstanding the chill of the Lincoln con
ference. Arriving delegations showed
marked favor, even enthusiasm, for him.
The Senator's parlors were besieged by
hundreds of delegates and callers from
Ohio. Indiana. Pennsylvania and many
other States. Among the steady stream
of callers came ex-Governor Altgeld, a
strong personal admirer of Hill, and O

From what has developed to-day, how
ever, the mission is likely to prove ro
more productive of harmonizing results
than the pilgrimage of Hill. Indeed, this
feeling is so universal that the Eastern
delegations reached a practical determina

to confine their efforts to the platform
committee, thus keeping the subject from
becoming a source of discord on the floor
of the convention.
Bryan Will Not Yield.
But the development of Mr. Bryan's
influence over the convention and his un
wavering Insistence on 10 to 1 has created
a curious counter move. This is among

TOWNE'S FRIENDS ACTIVE.
Minnesota Delegation Urged to Hurry
to Kansas City.
ST. PAUL. July 2.— The State delegates
to the Kansas City convention to-day re
ceived a message from Messrs Rosing and
Roxboro, who are at Kansas City, indi
cating that there i3 warm work before tha
Minnesota delegation, presumably in the
interests of Mr. Towne's candidacy. Mr.
Rosing wired for the delegation to be
called together immediately and notified
it to come by the first train, as it was
vitally important tr> be on the ground on
Wednesday. Mr. I,ane, secretary of the
State Central Committee, wired the dele
gates to come to St. Paul and start im
mediately. They went out this evening
by the regular Great Western train.
At Democratic headquarters this move
from Kansas City is deemed encouraging
to the interests of Minnesota's candidate
for Vice President. Mr. Towne.
The special train engaged by the Silver
Republicans will leave to-morrow after
It is yet anybody's fight and the pro
prietors of the Vice Presidential "boom
lets" are picking up courage.
Bryan recently and I think his attitude
could be summed up in about this way:
He is not favoring any one candidate. He
wants us not to make our wishes too
prominent, as it wiir look as though this
reflected his views, whereas he wants to
keep entirely out of the Vice Presidential
contest. But we feel that we should ex
press our views for Towne, who is a fa
vorite with most of tho delegation and our
work will be for him."
When Mr. Dahlman was further asked
if Mr. Bryan opposed any particular man
because of his financial views, he said:
"There is no opposition by name. But
Mr. Bry/in wants a man who can stand
with him. firmly and fully, on the 16 to 1
platform, for that is what the platform
will he. Without discussing individuals.
I think it can be put down that no man
out of sympathy with such a platform
will be nominated for Vice President. The
platform is more to Mr. Bryan than Vice
Bryan to Address the Convention.
Mr. Dahlman also gave definite assur
ance of a dramatic climax to the nomi
nation of Mr. Bryan by his appearance on
the floor of the convention for a speech
that will electrify the convention and
serve as a campaign keynote.
"We are going to insist on his coming
down and appearing before the conven
tion," said Mr. Dahlman. "The Nebraska
men will see that a resolution is passed
inviting him hero, and you may rest as.
sured he will come, although he is person
ally disinclined to do so."

KANSAS CITY. July 2.— It was nearly
8 o'clock when the Santa Fe train haul
ing the California delegates to the con
vention steamed into Union Depot. The
station was crowded, but as the Califor
nians were unaccompanied by any brass
band and were too tired to make any
noise, their entry was quiet enough.
There was no demonstration of any kind;
they did not parade to their headquarters
behind music and with flying banners
like their Republican brethren at Phila
delphia, but were content to ride in a
street car and. in accord with Judge Ma
gulre's ideas of Jeffersonian simplicity.
Judge Maguire and M. F. Tarpey were
attired in negligee shirts and the entire
party was saflly begrimed with smoke and
dust. After inspecting their headquarters
at the Coates House they dispersed to
their individual quarters at the various
hotels, most of them stopping at the
Coates, the Victoria and the Washington.
They will hold a meeting in their head
quarters, parlor J of the Coatea House,
to-morrow morning at 0 o'clock, after
Senator White arrives, when the Vice
Presidency will be discussed and mem
bers of the various committees selected.
The Californians say they had a fairly
pleasant trip and managed to have some
fun en route. At Pueblo they attended a
circus. Mr. Sweet of Santa Rosa com
posed a song, set to the music of "There'll
Be a Hot Time in the Old Town To
night." Each delegate, offered criticisms
and amendments and the song was a won
der when each Californian had contributed
To-morrow the exhibit of California
fruits and wines will be opened in the
lobby of the Coates House.
While it is true that nothing will be de
cided upon with respect to the Vire Presi
dency until the arrival of Senator White,
there is pood reason to believe that the
Californians fear they may have to vote
for Mr. Hearst's choice for Vice Presi
dent. There was a suspicion lurking
about the Coates Hotel lobby late to
night that Mr. Hearst had not entirely
abandoned his ambition to receive Cali
fornia's complimentary vote, notwith
standing the way he was turned down
by the committee at Sacramento. The
California delegation apprehends that the
young man Is yet ambitious. The ¦word
"apprehension" is used advisedly, for "ap
prehension" is the very word to express
the feeling of th» delegates individually
and collectively. They realize they would
cut a sorry figure in espousing the Vice
Presidential boom of the Yellow Kid's ed
itor, but are afraid of his lash.
The Call correspondent has known for
a long time that Judge Magulre has
greatly admired his former colleague in
Congress. Charles A. Towne of Minne
sota. Towne is a Populist, and Judge Ma
giiire is the next thing to it. It was sur
prising, therefore, to-night when Mr. Jla
gulre expressed a doubt that Towne's geo
graphical location might not militate
against him. The Judge said:
"Mr. Towne is an able man. I believe
firmly in free, coinage, too. but Towne's
fesidence Is only 150 miles from that of,
Bryan. Would it not be better to nomi
nate a candidate from a more distant sec
tion of tho country?"
Just what was passing in his mind was
not apparent to the newspaper men. but
they were good guessers and surmised
that Hearst will either pose as a candidate
himself or else, realizing the absurdity of
his own candidacy, will bring influence to
bear on the Californians to induce them
to votfi for Hill tn order to defeat Croker
and Van Wyck and the Tammany crowd
The New York Journal, as Is known, has
been waging a fight against the ice trust,
which is fostered by Croker. the Van
Wyck brothers and Tammany chiefs tn
general. The latter have angered Hearst
by making unpleasant allusions to "Yel
low.Kid Journalism." and it is a ten-to
one shot that the young man will attempt
to array the California delegation against
Croker and in favor of Hill. Judge Ma
guire's uncalled for eulogy of Hill would
seem to indicate that Hill Is Hearst's
choice for Vice President.
Hearst's .candidacy is a manifest ab
surdity to everybody in Kansas City. If
"California were to seriously present the
name of. any Californian for the Vice
Presidency . it would be that of Senator

that nominated Bryan four years ago.

According to the programme of the Democratic National Convention, Willis D. Oldham will make the speech
nominating Bryan for the Presidency, and Senator White will make an able seconding speech.
KANSAS CITY, July 2.— The placid
ity of the meeting of the United
States Monetary League was con
siderably ruffled fn the closing
hours to-day by statements from
General A. J. Warner of Ohio, who was
a volunteer speaker, taking tho time
and place which had been assigned to
Mr. Sulzer of New York, who failed to
appear. General Warner was introduced
by ex-Governor St. John, who called him
the "father of the cause of free silver."
General Warner caused the first flutter
of excitement by saying that so far as he
knew there was no proposition to change
the ratio of coinage. 'The live question of
the hour, he added, was to get silver re
stored, to its former place, where it wouid
have the same rights as gold.
"I don't care anything about the ratio
of 16 to 1," he said. "Get silver restored;
catch your hare first, then cook it. Regu
late silver automatically and you settle
the question. I sometimes think we have
laid too much stress on 1G to 1. I am in
favor of it, but there are and must al
ways be conditions which may change the
Mr. Berry of Pennsylvania interrupted
and asked if General Warner was not
giving away some of the secrets of the
platform. Before General Warner could
reply Mr. Harvey asked him:
"Do you understand the history of free
General Warner replied without perturb
ation that he had made a study of it, and
he begged leave to say to Mr. Harvey and
others that there had been no legal action
taken by Congress on the question of
ratio. General St. John followed with an
interruption in which he said:
"I say • to General Warner that unless
16 to 1 is specifically mentioned in the
platform of the convention to meet this
week, a tremor will run along the entire
line and voters in the West, especially,
would desert the ticket by thousands."
Delegates Become Angry.
This statement received vigorous ap
plause. Turning to those in front. Gen
eral Warner said:
"Get your silver first. Don't make any
more mistakes. When you get your silver
we. will fix the ratio."
Interruptions followed with rapidity
and exceptions to the? speaker's views be
came heated. Waiting a . moment for
quiet. General Warner continued:
"I tell you the question of 16 to.l is go
ing to cut little figure in this campaign.
The issues will be anti-imnerialism and
trusts and what we should do for human
ity, and the question of ratio will sink
into infinite insigniticance."
An excited speaker in the rear row
shouted that if General Warner's ideas
prevailed the party might as well tear
down the flag of the campaign and the
election of McKinley would be Inevitable.
General Warner said he would not take
up further time. * Mr. Harvey leaped upon
a table, and, repeating former statements,
'. "If the people do not instruct Congre/33
before election on the question of ratio
Congress would never agree. .And I stand
here, to sky to you," pointing to General
Warner, "16 to 1 has been demanded by
our leader. Colonel Bryan, and we will
follow his lead."
H. A. Elian of Buffalo. N. Y., was called
and said -New York Democracy had come
to Kansas City to demand that 16 to 1 be
specifically mentioned, and nothing else
would satisfy New York.
A motion made to add General Warner
to the committee on resolutions brought
out several objections, and General War

denounced him politically, and, in some
instances, personally. The outside pro
test was as vigorous as that of the in
Ex-Governor St. John was the first
speaker of the afternoon session. His sub
ject being "What Constitutes Money?"
Referring to the convention on the fourth,
the speaker hoped that there would be a
new declaration of principles. He de
manded that the free coinage of silver at
16 to 1 should be emphasized by the con
vention and nothing short of such an
enunciation would suit the people.
