SENATOR HENRY CABOT I.ODQi:.
There continues to be much gossip
respecting tho .adoption of a gold stan
dard plank by the MeKinlcy men with
out any substantial basis of fact be
yond the incident mentioned in these
dispatches of Mr. Hanna taking under
consideration the suggested Kohlsaat
modification of the Indiana platform.
Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, of Uas
saehusctts, who it is thought may bo
made chairman of the committee on
resolutions, is expected to reach here
Saturday, and upon his arrival it is pos
sible that something more definite than
the prevailing rumors may be arrived
at as to tho probable financial twnd of
tho nlatform. The discussion of the

The silver men are waiting for the
arrival of Senator Teller with consid
erable Impatience. A dispatch was re
ceived Friday afternoon stating that
Mr. Teller had just left Washington.
This will bring him to St. Louis Satur
day night. A caucus of silver men will
bo held as soon as Senator Teller ar
rives and a courso of action will be de
cided upon. They will go into the con
vention and make a stand for a free sil
ver plunk, but further than this noth
ing has been determined upon and will
not be until Senator Tpller arrives and
a conference with him is hold.
Some. of the extremists say if they
cannot carry a resolution of free coin
age at 10 to 1, they would be in favor
of voting with tho gold men in favor of
a pronounced declaration in favor of a
single gold standard, so as to have a
clear-cut issue, and thus avoid tho am
biguity of a straddle.
Mr. Chauncey M. Depew, who ar
rived in St. Louis Saturday morning,
makes public the following telegram
from Gov. Morton, declining In ad
vance tho nomination for the vico presi
dency: "BlilNK Cl.IFl', N. Y., Juno 13. To

It was stated authoritatively at Mr.

committee wcro assembling Saturday
morning preparatory to a fourth day's
siege in the matter of tho contesting
delegations, there was an informal ex
change of opinions regarding the ad
visability of holding ono or more sessions
on Sunday. It was admitted that the
work of tlio body was badly in arrears
and that unless means could bo found
of expediting it, tho temporary roll
would bo still in abeyance when it be
came tho duty of Chairman Carter to
call tho national convention to order on
Tuesday. When tho senator from
Montana originally issued his summons
for . the committee to assemble at this,
place, u week in advance of the date
fixed for the convention, thciewas con
siderable criticism of his cours'e, and it
was said that tho committee ought to

developments have dumonstrated the
wisdom of the national chairman's
course. Although the committee has

tho contests from New York. It has
already been informally agreed
that tho timo limit will not ba enforced

contest from this state Will, it is ex
pected, occupy at least one, if not two,
sessions of tho committee. Notwith
standing the state of the calendar,
however, it was apparent Saturday
morning that strenuous ob'ootions
would he offered to any proposition
looking to the transaction of business

teemen went so far as to tay
that they would cease to par
ticipate in tho deliberations at the
stroke of midnight Saturday night, no
matter what might bo the pendin,

all this is changed and tho
MeKinlcy men are sVouting
finance. A suggested platform crafted
by Mr. Kohlsaat. of Chicago, was sub
mitted to Mr. llanna and other close
friends of Major McKinley Friday, and
was takcn under favorable considera
tion. This proposed financial plank
while following in tho lines of tho In
diana platform, and goes ono important
step further, and specifically declares
for tho "gold standard." At tho same
timo, however, that this proposi
tion was submitted, tho sugges
tion was made that if this
platform were adopted by tho commit
tee on resolutions It 6hould be with tho
distinct understanding that when it
was reported to tho convention by tho
commltteo on resolutions, the chair
man should entertain a motion to strike
out tho words "gold standard," tho
plank to bo so framed that this could
be dono without interfering with tho
context'or tho seasb. Such a motion
being entertained, tho proposition
would bo subject to debate and could
be Unally settled by the convention on
a test vote. It i's understood to bo Mr.
Hanna's judgment that tho words
"gold standard" ought not to appear in
Bx-Sonator Piatt Friday issued over
his signature the following statement:
"Gov. Morton will bo placed in nom
ination and cordially supported by his
friends. Speaker Heed and Senator
Allison will also receive tho votes of
their supporters, all reports to the con
trary notwithstanding. I am hopeful
that the convention will recognizo tho
wisdom of making Gov. Morton our
presidential candidate and declaring
unequivocally for a single gold stan
dard. Ho is essentially the gold stan
dard, as his iccord demonstrates.
"From a cursory observation during
my brief stay here 1 am sanguine that
a majority of the delegates favor the
continuance of the existing financial
system, lis interpreted by republican
administrations. The Now York dele
gation will certainly do nil in its power
to put a gold plank in the platform,
for Now York is for gold."
"T. C. Pl.Air."
benator Allison's friends, who have
hitherto remained so silent that the
impression gained ground that lie had
been withdrawn from the race, tire now
assuming an aggressive attitude, and
assert that he will be supported by vig
orous oritoryaml many votes when'the
convention proceeds to nominations.
The Marquette club, of St. Louis,
Friday received a reply from Gov. Mor
ton, of New York, to an inquiry ad
dressed to him, us to whether in the
event of his election to the presidency
he would make any discrimination
against Roman Catholics.
Gov. Morton quotes the explicit dec
laration of his acceptance when nomi
nated for governor as to the equal
rights of all citizens and adds: "I' still
adhere to the views therein expressed
and can only add if I weie charged
with the duty of administering the of
fice ol president of the United States,
I should endeavor to treat all classes of
citizens without discrimination as to
their religious belief.''

of Indiana, will be temporary chair
man of the convention, and Senator
John M. Thurston, of Nebraska, per
manent chairman. Some of the In
diana men made a vigorous protest

would tend to further his candidacy
for United States senator, and in this
year, when the party in Indiana needs
the aid of every man, it would not do
to promote Fairbanks' iuterests as

Voorhecs' seat. Their objection camo
too late, however, and Mr. Fairbanks
will assume tho gavel after Senator

Concerning the permanent chairman

about it, said: "The chances arc that I
will bo made permanent chairman of

to me and urged me to come to the

I can sco no reason for tho objection of
some peoplo in Indiana to make Charles
W. Fairbanks, of Indiana, temporary

him an unfair advantago over any ono
in that state. Tho convention is held
away from Indiana. If it was hold in
