M'KINLEV MEN SEEM TO HAVE
VOTES ON HAND TO
NOW OVER SIX HUNDRED
THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE ADDED
TO THE TOTAL DURING THE
OPPOSITION IS MAKING A SHOW.
Piatt, Reed and Morton Men Still
Insist There Is a Contest on
ST. LOUIS, June 13.—McKinley*:
headquarters have been crowded all ;
day and to-night access to them being
almost Impossible. Mark Hanna and \
Gen. Grosvenor, after to-night's ses-
Blon of the national committee, said !
McKinley had 640 votes as the contest j
now stands. Major Charles Dick, who
is doing the tabulating as the cimmit- ;
tee proceeds with the temporary con- j
sideration of contests puts the McKin- j
ley vote on the first ballot at 633 with '
460 necessary to nominate. The oppo
sition Is keeping up the fight, especial- .
iy the Reed, Morton and Quay men, l
and Mr. Piatt is not disposed to make |
ahy overtures. The other leaders of !
• the opposition are communicating free- j
ly with the McKinley managers.
While there are delegates who say I
they would like more of a contest, yet '
they seem to go to see Mr. Hanna and
other McKinley managers, with confi- |
dence, themselves, that what is prom
ised or done can be carried out. There
is ah absence of the usual anxiety as
to-who,is able to carry out promises
or deliver goods. There Ib nothing but
the monotony of claiming more than
a majority about the McKinley head
quarters, and no reports about com
binations or any action on the part
of the field against "the favorite" seem
to cause any alarm on the part of the
McKinley men. Nearly all the dele
gates calling seem to come to tell how
the results were brought about in their
respective districts and states, and get
acquainted with those who come in
structed br have pledged themselves
"by Tetter to Mr. Hanna at his McKin
ley headquarters in Columbus.
v / The'harmony in the Ohio delegation
Is a feature that has not been seen at a j
convention for twenty years—not since
a solid delegation went to the Cincin- i
nati convention in 1876 for R. B. Hayes.
There have been many surmises as to .
what the silver men will do when silver
Is knocked out by the big majority in
the convention. The silver men in the
convention will fight for free silver in
the platform committee. If beaten
there they will fight for It in the con- |
Vent'ion and will oppose any platform.1
that is against free coinage and any
man who is nominated upon such a
platform. If beaten In the convention,
.as. they expect to be, they will take the
case back to their people and let them ,
decide what they wish to do —whether
they will vote the Republican ticket,
organize a third party or stay away
from the polls. This is the course that j
was decided upon in the several con
ferences held in Washington between .
Senator Teller of Colorado. ■ Mantle of
Montana, Dubolf-fvyf* Idaho, and Cannon j
Of Utah, and Representative Hartman j
iv" Montana, and; this is the course j
which will most likely be agreed upon i
Monday at a conference by the silver
men together with Senator Carter and

S.'iiutor Mantle arrived from Mon

of his constituents and what he says

their "view and those of all the silver
"Any declaration which the Republi
can party makes against the free coin
age of silver," the senator said, "must
necessarily be distasteful to the silver
men and all talk of attempting to con
ciliate them by offering them duty on
wool and other western products is a'
mere waste of words, for the simple
reason that there are enough western
Republican senators to compel a just
recognition of every western interest
in any protective tariff legislation
which may be hereafter proposed."
When asked if the Indiana platform
would be acceptable to the silver men,
Senator Mantle said it would not by
any means. "We do not believe in
waiting for an international agree
ment, "said h<\ "because we do not
think such a thing is possible."
"Will the silver men bolt?" was
"Not in the sense that you seem to
think. I do not believe any silver men

I hear, good words for Byrnes on all
hands. The convention hall is the
best I have ever seen for a national con
vention. Previous buildings erected
have been flimsy, barn-like affairs
while this could not be better if it were
permanent. When buildings are made
over as has more frequently been the
case, there are hosts of defects which
are overcome here. St. Louis has done
the work well and with Minnesota men
for managers the business ought to be
expidited satisfactorily. What the
people will do in the way of ratification

delegation passed through Cleveland
this evening, en route to St. Louis.
Every one of the seventy Pine Tree
state Republicans on the train was
toutiitg for Reed. Gov. Clews, who
ted as spokesman for the party, said:
.p-vVre are going to St. Louis to work for
the adoption of a sold standard plat
form, and for the nomination of
Thomas Braekett Reed." When asked
.ivhat he thought of Mr. Marley's de-

Clews said: "We cannot believe that he
said anything of fhTklml, and we have
no criticism to make until we. arrirve

Sot Yet Ready to Eipresit Hi*»
St. Louis, June 13.—Senator Teller, of
Colorado, arrived tonight from Wash
ington. He was asked about his recent
statement in Washington, and Cincin
nati, but he declined to *e-Interviewed
further. He said he would stand by
what he had said, but that there had
been more published than he stated.
He said he would not consider any
thing connected with the convention
until Monday, and that he would not
be interviewed or in any manner ex
press himself until that time. Senator
Teller was anxiously inquired after at
McKinley headquarters, and elsewhere
tonight, but none could reach him, and
his most intimate friends said he would
not participate until after the silver
conference' on Monday. It is expected
than an ultimatum to the McKinley
managers will be made Monday night.
Some of the-silver men are charging !
that concessions are being made to the j
ultra gold - standard men from New i
England, New York and other eastern !
states, regardless of the sentiment of j
western stiates, and-that Senator Teller,
who is to be the silver leader ln the :
convention, shares in this opinion. j
Judging from the indisposition of the
sliver leader tonight, he is contem- ;
plating some radical action in the
event that the committee on resolutions
reports in favor of the gold standard, j
He will not express himself in advance
of such action, but his intimate friends |
assert that he would not sanction a '
combination of the extreme silver men, j
with the extreme gold men, to defeat a
plank that would lead towards silver \
in any degree. It has been asserted
that such a combination might be
made, but it is understood that Mr.
Teller will not, in case of conflict becS
tween the extreme gold men and those
less radically inclined in favor of that
metal, take the side of either, but will
stand squarely for a declaration for
the free coinage of silver. He is un
derstood to hold that the sliver men
cannot afford to combine with any
faction to defeat either in the interest
of the other.
SPEECH BY DEPEW.
Netv Yorker Lives Up to Hlm Reputa
St. Louis, June 13.—Hon. Chauncey
M. Depew sustained his reputation by
making an after-dinner speech within
twenty-four hours after he reached St.
Louis. The distinguished New Yorker j
was the guest of honor at the annual
banquet of the alumni of the St. Louis !
Law school, at the Mercantile club to
night. The banquet was largely attend- j
ed and presided over by Franklin Fer
ris. Mr. Depew's eulogy on the legal
profession awakened much enthusiasm. ;
He was introduced by Mr. Ferris, and j
after expressing his great pleasure at
meeting his brethren of the bar of Mis-
BOuri, Drr Depew, in a brief and happy ;
way, reviewed the historic profession
in this country. He then said:
"We are accustomed to pay super
lative tribute to the great soldiers of |
our country. In lesser measure we j
glorify the statesmen-of the republic. :
It is the story of our nation that its !
origin and development have been due i
to a few great leaders. We have little |
written and less understood of the large
debt we owe to.a few great lawyers, i
Alexander Hamilton was the most bril
liant and . constr-uctive intelligence of .
his age. He was the leader of the bar
of the United State.

i great lawyer was Daniel Webster.

ST. LOUIS, June 13.—The national
committee made somewhat more rapid i
progress to-day than at former sittings \
in disposing of the contests over dis- j
puted seats. The day was given up I
largely to the consideration of tho
vexed question presented by the Texas
and South Carolina controversies, In
volving the entire delegation from
South Carolina, and the greater part
of that from Texas. The contestants |
in both of these states involved slmi- !
lax questions, as in both instances they J
grew out of the rivalry between the
old and the new factions formerly.
There is ln both states a faction known j
as the "Lily Whites," which repre
sents an element which is trying to
build up the Republican party among
the white people of their respective I'
states. They had in each state an j
Independent organization, which sought |
recognition at the expense of the old i
committees. In both instances the na
tional committee refused to recognize
the new committees.
St. Louis, June 13.—In accordance
with the order made Thursday the Re- |
publican national committee proceeded !
promptly upon convening this after- j
noon to the consideration of the
question of permanent organiza
tion. When the chair announced
the order Mr. Huston of In- ;
diana read a telegram from Hon. R. i
W. Thompson asking a postponement
of the election of a temporary chairman
until he could arrive at 7 o'clock. He i
moved a postponement until 8 o'clock, j
Mr. De Young moved to lay the mo-11
tion on the table, saying that he did
not understand that Mr. Thompson was".
a candidate. All were prepared to votf* i
and as all arrangements were made j
there could be no excuse for delay. Mr- j
H uston said that he was satisfied that j
Mr. Thompson was laboring under a
misrepresentation and that if here
would be satisfied. Mr. De Young's mo- '
tion to*lay on the table prevailed. Mr.
De* Young then nominated C. W. Fair- i
' banks of Indiana for tempufcary chair
man^saying that he wasj-yell known
"and no eulogy was necessary- Mr. Ke-'!
rens of Missouri seconded the nomina- j
tion. There were no other nominations
and Mr. Fairbanks was named by the
uannimous vote of the committee. \
The election of a temporary secrets-ry^
being next in order. Mr. Evans of Min
| nesota placed in nomination C. W. j
I Johnso of Minnesota., Mr. Yerkes
'■ named W. E. Riley of Kentucky and
! Senator Gear, Harry H.Smith. Two lat
ter names were withdrawn upon the
i understanding that Mr. Johnson!
should be made secretary and Messrs. j
Riley and Slmth assistant secretaries.
So many names were mentioned for as- j
sistant secretary that Mr. Fessenden
suggested that each state and territory
i be given an assistant.
Mr. Hahn took Mr. Fessenden's sug- '
I gestion seriously, moving that one sec- |
retary and three assistant secretaries
be chosen and that each member of the
committee be allowed to designate an
. honorary secretary. The motion pr*e"
vailcd. Mr. Johnson was elected secre
i tary and Messrs. Riley, Smith and A.
' B. Humphreys of New York, assistants.
The Texas contest was then an
nounced to be in order. This contest
involves all the delegates at large and
i all the thirteen district delegates, i
i Wright Cuney heads the delegation
: claiming to be regular. The question
i of party organization was taken up and
i H. F. McGregor, representing the "Lily
White" or reform contestants, ad
dressed the committee in behalf of that
organization. Mr. McGregor clairtttMl i
' that his organization was regular, hav-j
; ing been organized prior to the Mifme- |
1 apolis convention. John Grant, re-gre-^
senting the other set of contestants,"
j said the Lily Whites were not entitled
to consideration as Republicans. They
j were a political vacuum, political ban
I dits. In support of this proposition he
• asserted that the "Lily Whites" de- *
manded separate primaries for whites
and blacks. Mr. Terrell, who was min
ister to Belgium under Harrison, fol-j
lowed MrGrant in support of the "black,
and tan" element, while he was in turn
followed by Mr. Love, a colored man, in
behalf of the "Lily Whites." At the
'. conclusion of Mr. Love's.,speech the.
committee without division,decided the
( „fcat>e'jCommittee of which Mr. Grant is
! chairman to be regular organization."
; This is the faction known as the "black
; and tans." This action had the effect
' of eliminating the Lily Whites from the
contest, leaving the dispute to proceed
'■ between the Cuney and Grant wings of
the "black and tans."
After the "Lily Whites" had been
disposed of the committee took up fhe <
contest of the "block and ton" fac-J
i tions. The vote was first taken on
I seating the Curey delegates-at-larg?.
I An aye and nay vote was taken, re
: suiting in the negative by a vote of
17 to 25. Several members refused.-to
! vote on this roll cal, saying that they
were convinced that neither delega
tion should be given seats. When the
result was announced, Mr. Fessenden
| moved that it be declared the sense' of *
I the committee that neither delegation
j was entitled to be placed on the terri
i porary roll and this motion prevailed. >
' The hearing in the Texas district con
tests then proceeded in their numeri-
I cal order. ..,
The contest from the first district was
between David Taylor and M. W. Law
son, on one side, and Eailey Sharks and
J. Cadwell on the other. All four were
colored men. It was stated that there
were no McKinley men in either of
the delegations, Taylor and Lawson be
ing for Reed, and Sharks and Cadwell
for Allison. Taylor and Lawson were
From the second district, H. B. Kane
and T. T. Pollard, who are said to be
McKinley men, were seated. Their
opponents were for Reed. The con
test in this case turned upon a charge
| that Hon. Webster Flannigan, who
does not reside in the district, had car
ried the election for Kane and Pollard
by the use of a lot of proxies. Flanni
-1 gan was present and denounced the
report as an "unmitigated lie." A
recess was then taken until 7.80 to-.
The committee rushed business at the
evening session. No contestants ap
peared in the third, fourth and fifth dis- '
tricts and the McKinley men were
seated. After a short argument the
McKinley men, J. M. McCormick and
Robert Armstrong, were seated with
very little discussion. In.the seventh.
Texas district W. F. Crawford and B.
F. Wallace, Reed men, were seated. In
the eighth Texas district, the contest
was withdrawn and Marlon Williams
and W. J. Wasson were seated. They

"that there will also be a sentence

Hawley would make a good candidate

I noon. I called lupon him at his room
at the Southern" hotel and found him
with h's coat; off, a towel pinned
around his.throat and a burly negro
Tethering his hair and head with soao

to look at me through the suds and
kept them onen while he said he had
decided to give no interviews to any
one. Quay's pictures are up in all tho
hotels, but everyone knows he is out

Vißltom Will Parade Today and
Afterwards Picnic at Bunholz
The delegates from twenty-two different
states who are in the city for the purpose of
attending the eleventh convention of the Bo
hemian Slavonic Benevolent association, which
will convene tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock,
were tendered a social entertainment and re
ception at C. S. P. S. hall, Western avenue
and West Seventh street, last evening by
the members of the St. Paul lodges of the as
sociation. Aside from furnishing the delegates
a pleasant evening's diversion the entertain
ment last evening wan Intended to better ac
quaint the delegates with each other before
the actual work of the convention begins and
that It succeeded admirably in its dual pur
pose was manifested by the excellence of tho
programme and the good cheer which pre
vailed at a banquet later in the evening. The
hall was gaily decorted with bunting and
American flags and about the walls hung ban
ners bearing the names of the st.tes repre
As the members of the order and their
friends gathered in the hall the orchestra of
the Cleveland High school rendered several
choice selections, concluding the overture
with a grand march, during which the dele
gates maflohed two in two abreast and took
the seats' reserved for them In the, fwnt of the
Prof. -Ant-hony Juika , as master of cere
monies, introduced as the first speaker, Chair
man Na-feTtll, of the arrangPTffeni ° irumiiimey.-t
who delivered a brief but cordial address of '
welcome to the assembled delegates, which
was responded to by Joseph Soukup, chair
man of the Minnesota Grand lodge.
Robert Pitte, secretary of the Supreme
lodge, of Chicago, was next accorded the plat
form to express the regrets of Presidant
Matousek, of the Grand lodge, who will not
be able to attend the convention on account
of a serious illness of recent date. Secretary
Pitte took occasion to give a few words of
advice to the delegates concerning their ac
tion when the convention assembles tomorrow,
by cautioning them to be conservative in .
their transactions and to weigh well the ques- i
tions which would present themselves for so- i
lution. There would, he said, be necessary a J
great many changes in the constitution and i
as this was the first national convention in
some years there might be a tendency to sac- j
rlfice expediency to haste, in which case the '
jassociation would find Itself no better off
; after the convention than previous to its con
| Following the applause which greeted the ecn
'. c'.uslon of Secretary Pitte's remarks the com
' pany was successively entertained by reclta
; tions by Mrs. V. Karcerousky. of thi3 city,
Mrs. Mary Nova, of Milwaukee 1, Wis., Mrs.
i Annie Flbygar, of Winona, Minn., Mrs. Mary
; Sanda. of Minneapolis, members of the ladles'
au.xilliary of the association. Miss L. Ceska
sang a pleasing soprano solo, folowed by a
; violin solo by Otto Sobotka and a medley by
; the orcaestra which won two heraty encores
j At the conclusion of the entertainment the .
j delegates were invited to the dining ha.l \
j where a banquet was served accompanied !
\ with speechees and toasts.
i The convention which will convene to-mor
row is te first the association has held within
■ the past five years and is consequently looked
upon by te members as of great importance.
Ita object will be the revision of the eonsti
j tution of the association which Is now con- |
sidered inadequate to the requirements of a j
practical benevolent society. The document )
as it Is at present makes no distinction be- j
tween one joining the association at the age ''
of fifty years and one twenty-one years of
age. The assessments are the same as is th?
f amount of insurance, $1,000. and the trustees
have begun to realize that In competing with
) other benevolent soc:ieties there must be j
j more of an equality, hence the desire to I
: amend the constitution so that young men i
[ may join the order under l°ss exacting condi
: tions than one who has become a member j
! after the prime r,f life. It la likely that the
1 convention will continue in session all of this ;
! ■ Monday will be given over to the election
; of officers and the aDpointment of the commlt-
J tee on revision. The remainder of the time '
■ \t is calculated, will be occupied, in .discuss- j
ling the'^recommendations of tha committee j
1 and the consideration of such mattery of less ]
j imnro.*arx}»;: which may come before the con- j
j vention in.the way of routine business.
i To-day the delegates and their friends will
: be given a picnle at Banhober's park which
wHI be preceded by a street parade com- '
i posed of the delegates and the members of ;
| ths St. Paul and Minneapolis lodges of the j
, association. A brass band accompalying the

Sketch of Patrick Birch Who Died
In the death of Patrick Birch, which oc
curred last Sunday evening. Juno 7, at his
home on Sherman street, this city, a brave
soldier of the republic was "mustered out."
Mr. Birch enlisted as a private in Battery C,
Fourth U. S. artillery, Oct. 25, 1868. partlcl- ,
gating in the historic Mormon expedition ln
1859. In 1861 Mr. Birch returned to Wash
ington, D. C, and was a follower of McClel
lan In the Peninsula campaign. Before being
mustered out of the service in April, 1863, on
account of disability, Mr. Birch had partici
pated in the following battles, in many of
which he was severely wounded: Rappahan
ock, Va., York Town. Williamsburg, Fair
Oakes, Allen Farm or Peach Orchard. Savage
Station, Malveran Hill and Fredrleksberg.
Mr. Birch was a soldier of modest, unassum
ing manners, and It was but seldom that he
would relate any of the incidents of the many
campaigns and battles in which he had con
ducted himself so gallantly^ and but for the
above facts being furntslieo*' by* a comrade of
the departed soldier, few would know the re
cord of him who now sleeps "the last long
sleep" In beautiful Calvary. Mr. Birch was
a member of the Grand Army of the Re
public and the Army and Navy Union, under
whose auspices the funeral was held, a de
ta;l from St. Paul Camp No. 1, Sons of Vet
erans'U. S. A., acting as an escort, and Ten
dering the last honors at the grave.

Peter Kahaler, a contractor residing

ing for Kahaler. On Friday ni^ht

Jameson struck him oner the head
with a hickory whip Btock. Jameson's
■"JtPCOtrnt of- m-1- affair could not be ob

inches long on the top of his head,

saulted, and a warrant was ordered is

_the court said there had been some
trouble between the men for months
and that there was a woman in the
case. As to jjthis phase of the -affair
