St. Louis, June 15. St. T.ouis new
looks llko a convention city. It lias
hung out its bunting- in tasteful profu
sion to bid welcome to the big repub
lican gathering. A little slow in start
ing1 Hie demonstration, it bus landed it
in good form at last.
All four 6f thu leading candidates,
McKinley, Heed, Morton und Allison,
have their headquarters at the South

are designated by an allegorical rep
resentation of "Protection" a marvel
ous work of art.

It represents in the foreground five
female figures, fat and florid, one of
them standing and holding uloftin one
hand the stripes and starry shield, In
belled "Protection," and holding in-tho
other hand a naked sword, on ".vhich
she leans. The other females are stand
ing around in rather ungraceful
attitudes, one of them appearing to be
seated on a texan steer which looks as
if it would like to get up on its feet,
bnt. was too heavily laden to do so. In
the background of the picture is a wild
prairie, with no sign of life or human
habitation, so that it puzzles even an
Ohio man to determine where the "pro
tection" is meant to come in.
But in the Ohio headquarters on tho
first floor corridor, where Mr. Mark
Hanna presides, there is a graceful ar
ray of festoons nnd Hags and stato
shields, and every one of the big crowd

While it, nppears to bo conceded that

tain that the Maine people have made
the finest display of the man of their
choice. Tho Heed quarters arc1 in tho
parlors' of the Southern, a magnificent'
suite of rooms that havo been elabor
ately decorated with trl-colored bunt
ing, festooned from tho chandeliers.
Banners bearing the seal of tho state
nnd other flags -havo also been
utilized. The most imposing ef
fect, however, is mndc on tho
outside of the building. Tho edge of
the porch over he main entrance bears
the words, "Reed headquarters," und
at eacli end "Heed" appears in incan
descent electric lights, which at night
throw a brilliant glare upon a banner
suspended across the street containing
a fairly good picture of the speaker
and the inscription "Kor president,
Thomas 15. Heed."
Members of the national committee
are pluming themselves on their suc
cess of disposing of the immense mass
of work thrust upon them, without
holding a Sunday session, against
which tho conscientious scruples of
several of the members strongly rebel
led. True, it was nearly five o'clock
Sunday morning before the last con
test was disposed of.
Ex-Judge .1. Franklin Fort, one of
the New Jersey delegates, who has
been selected to present Hobart's name
to the convention, is enthusiastic over
the bright outlook for New Jersey's fa
QARIIETT A. HOBART.
The supporters of the vice-presidential
aspirations of 4Ienry Clay Evans,
of Tennessee, resumed their efforts in
earnest Sunday nftcrnoon. Every
newly arriving delegate was taken in
tow and plied with arguments con
cerning the expediency of placing a
distinct representative of the south
upon the ticket. Particular attention
was paid to those delegates who lfad
been previously approached in the in
terest of Gen. Hobart, of New Jersey.

teeman will nntne an ussistant. Rabbi
Samuel Sale, of St. Louis, was chosen
chaplain. Senator Thurston will be
the permanent chairmun.
Mr. Ilanna since coming to St. Louis
has received letters nnd telegrams from
all parts of the country from represen
tative business men, giving him, fre
quently 'in detail, their ideas as to what
tho financial plank bhould be and
how it should be expressed. These
have been collected and arranged.
The various platforms adopted by re
publican state conventions have iflso
been carefully analyzed and consid
ered. Sincoi the arrival of prominent
leaders Mr. Ilanna has availed himself
of the opportunity of personal con
verse with them on this important sub
ject. Mr. Fairbanks, of Indiana, who will
bo the temporary chairman of the con
vention, was with Mr. Ilanna tho
greater part of tho day, and among his
visitors were Mr. Depew and
Mr. Bliss, of New York, Mr.
Quay, of l'cnnsylvania, Mr. Henry
Cabot Lodge, of Massachusetts,
and very many others. Of all the prom
inent leaden, in St. Louis, I'latt alone
was conspicuous by his absence, but it
is understood that he was made cog
nizant of the purport of the proposed
financial plank by others who dis
cussed it with Mr. Ilanna.
St. Louis. Mo., June 15. Tho morn
ing before tho meeting of the conven
tion opened with the leading topic in
the nrinds of tho delegates, uot the
selection of candidates, but the na
ture of the financial plunk to bo adopt
ed. It seems clearly settled that the
fight over this question will be carried
from the committee on resolutions to
the floor of the convention. The com
mittee, under the .leadership of its
chairman, Cx-Gov. Foraker, will
sustain the "Ohio idea" of declaring
in favor of maintaining tho "existing
standard," not specifying what that
standard is. The eastern members,
under the leadership of oenator Henry
Cabot Lodge, will- insist upon defining
tho existing standard as a gold stand
ard. This proposition being voted
down in committee, ns' it probably will
be, Mr. Lodge and ex-Senator Piatt
will take the mutter into tho conven
tion and demand a roll-call vote, so as
to place qpch delegation dis
tinctly on record. Massachusetts,
Maiue, Connecticut, llhodc Island,
New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois,
Wisconsin, Minnesota nnd Tennessee
have given in their adhesion in advance
to the Lodge-l'latt programme.
4 MAT. QUAY, OP l'KNNSYI.VAJflA.
When the convention is brought faco
to face with tho question of declaring
ngainst the free coinage of silver, then
will occur Senator Teller's opportun
ity. He lias, repeatedly declared that
no effort on his part, or that of his
friends, will be wanting to force the
convention to a plain, honest declara
tion. "Hotter a gold plank;" ho says,
"than nn equivocal declaration which
means gold, but may bo taken to mean
It is intimated that when tho conven
tion shall havo definitely declared its
hostility to'silver coinage, Senator Tel
ler will make a speech which will take
tho form of n valedictory to the repub
lican party, and will rettro to his home
in Colorado to await events.
There is really little warmtji or earn
estness in tho Canvass being made for
tho vice presidency. All candidates
await a sign from tho prophet from
Ohio. Mr. Mark Ilanna; und Mr. Han
na, it is said, has intimated to at least
one prominent aspirant that it is not
hispurposo to mako any sign until aft
er tho nomination of Maj. McKinloy
becomes an assured fact. This condi
tion of things, it is ullegcd, places
at least ono prominent gentleman
in a rather embarrassing position.
Mr, Hobart, of Hew Jersey, would liko
to succeed Senatpr Smith In 1609, but
ho would like still bettor to bo vico
president of the Unltod States. Ho
fully realizes that no candidate for tho
vlco presidency can succeed without
the octivo'support of Maj, MoKlnley's
friends, and before clouding, his sen
atorial aspirations by exhausting lib
claims upon his party frionds.ln a can

' where he is at."
Mr. II. Clay Evans, of Tennessee,
pursues his canvass with no such bum
pering considerations to hold him back.
Ho has declared in favor of using the
word "gold" in tho platform, and
claims to have received much encour
agement from tho Vermont, New York,
Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana and Illi
Ex-Gov. D. Uussoll Brown, of Rhode
Island, opened headquarters in the
reading room of tho Southern Monday
morning and begun a- distribution of
vice-presidential buttons. He thinks
New England is entitled to second
place, and expects the support of the
New England delegations.
M. Mark llannu has prepared the
i iff plank of the platform. It will
v ;jioloj'ive, itnu is understood
j . -,,.cl.y lxiUot Mr. McKinley's
views It will not demand a restora
tion of tho rates of duty fixed in tho
law of 1S.90, nor will it refer spe
cifically to that Nl:iw known us
"thu McKinley law." All personal ref
erence to the author of the tariff bill
which passed the Fifty-first congress
will be avoided. It will call for such
an increase in duties as will amply pro
tect the American manufacturer and
farmer from foreign competition. The
platform will contain special referenco
to tho wool industry. It will lecite the
benefits which the wool grower en
joyed under the McKinley law, and it
will udvoeaU1 a i estoration of the rates
which were in vogue when the present
law was enacted.
It will contain a strong declaration
favoring a restoration of tho duty on
sugar. It will point out that tho prac
ticability of growing sugar beets suc
cessfully in the United States has been
clearly demonstrated and it will assert
that the expansion of this industry will
materially aid the farmers and in
crease tho value of their laud. It has
been suggested that the sugar schedule
should provide for free sugar with n
bounty of two cents a pound to tho
growers of the domestic product us was
'WHAT 8 THU MATTIin WITH II ANN A
the case in the law of 1890. Some of
the republican leaders object to tho
bounty provision and are urging that
the paragraph relating to sugar shall
merely stipulate for nn adequate pro
tection to the American grower.
The Merchant American Marino as
sociation is laboring industriously
through Its secretary, Mr. A. It. Smith,
to secure the insertion of a plank im
posing a duty of ten per cent, ad va
lorem on all importations to the United
States that are not transported in
American bottoms. It will be shown
that such a policy was in operation
for nearly forty years in tho United
States, during which period an average
of about 00 per cent, of American com
merce was curried in American vessels,
while to-day, with no protection for
American ships competing with for
eign steamers manned by sailors poorly
compensated, but 11 per cent, of our
commerce is carried in our own ships.

"Wo have won tho fight. Gold is tho
victor. Tho committee on resolutions
will declare for a gold standard, and
that declaration will bo adopted by tho
convention." Such was the statement
niado at one o'clock Monday afternoon
by Senator Lodge, of Massachu
setts. Ho continued; "Since tho
conforenco wo held Sunday night,
wo have heard returns from
many of tho states that havo elected

have carried the day and the republi
can party will bo saved from commit
ting itself to a straddle. The vote will
come first on a minority report for a
free coinago plank, which will be voted
down and the gold plank substituted.
Of courss, the western silver states can
not be counted upon, but wo have
saved New York and the vote of
that state amounts to moro than the
combined vote of all the silver produc
ing states should they at the election
repudiate the republican ticket. It Is

republican party and cause the friend
of honest money to rally ai ound its
standard the whole country over."
