CLAPP MEN, HOWEVER, CLAIM THE
REPORTS SEXT IN ARE

Personal Preferences They Say "Will
Cat a Large Figure in the
In the Republican contest for the gu
bernatorial nomination, Gov. Clough is
ahead up to date. Of the twenty or
more counties which have reported
their delegates, the present governor
has a good majority, on the face of the
returns, materially strengthened by
twenty-six votes from Goodhue county,
as the result of yesterday's convention.
Clapp men. at least, claim that the
reports sent In are prejudiced and do
; not represent the actual sentiments of
the delegations. They assert that when
it comes to voting in the convention,
the personal preferences of the dele
gates will outweigh the instructions of
the county conventions. For instance,
the anti-Clough men assert that St.
Louis, Morrison, Mower, and at least
three other counties which are already
credited to Gov. Clough will be badly
divided, If they are not absolutely hos
tile. Clapp's friends say that they base
their assertions oh private advices, and
they seem to think that if Clough can
not land the nomination on the first
ballot he will not secure it at all.
Tarns Bixby and Ramsey county
Clough men assert emphatically that
If they cannot win on the first ballot
they do not want to win at all. These
gentlemen seem to have good ground
for their assertions, because only three
out of the twenty-two counties which
have yet voted decisively are clearly
for Clough, unless all reports are
wrong. The anti-Clough people assert,
too, that the governor will carry Ram
sey and Hennepin. If he does he will
be renominated. If he doesn't, he will

GRIDLEY RAISED A STORM.
Duluth Democrat Had Advice to «■»'.'•
Away to Altgeld.
Special to the Globe.
DULUTH, Minn., June 24.—With a
divided Democracy on the silver ques
tion, a bolting congressman in the Re
publican party and a very much mixed
up and antagonistic sentiment through
out the city and county, politics in
Duluth are as warm as they make
them, and the coming campaign Is
filled with possibilities of "scrap" de
lightful to the pugnacious senses of
old war horses. A few days ago E. C.
Grldley, a local free silver Democrat,
sent a letter to Gov. Altgeld suggest
ing that the free silver forces hold
aloof from the Chicago convention,
allow the party to declare for gold,
and then combine at St. Louis on a
renegade candidate for president. Mr.
Gridley assumed to pledge the support
of the Democracy of this district to
such a move.
Naturally enough his action has
aroused a storm of Indignation. Local
Democrats protest strongly against
Mr. Gridley's presumption in represent
ing the party and, one of the most
prominent men connected with the lo
cal party organization has mailed a
letter to Gov. Altgeld in which he says:
Mr. Grldley is not a leader In the Demo
cratic party of our city or state. On the
contrary, his allegiance to par:y principle
has been viewed with suspicion for four
years last past. The Democrats of Duluth
are in favor of free coinage of sliver and
gold at the ratio of 16 to 1, as expressed In
their resolutions unanimously adopted at lut-ir
late county convention.
"Eight at least of the Minnesota delegation
of eighteen to the national convention will
work and vote for a Democratic (Demo
cratic underlined) candidate who is in favor
of free coinage.
Mr. Grldley, whose Democracy is of the
quality which will hardly keep over night
unless put In a cool place, speaks on«y wr
himself. Not another Democrat In the state
of Minnesota, so far as I am able to learn,
shares In his gauzy dreams. The Democ
racy of Minnesota believes that a. Chicago,
July 7, will be nominated the next president
of the United States, and that the party will
not have to go outside the members of Us
own convention to find a half-dozen candi
dates of whose fitness there can bo no «iues
tion or doubt.

Democratic state convention that con

afternoon, has put itself on record on
the financial question and has selected
its delegates to the national conven
tion, but In doing these things, It has
followed out the predictions of weeks

of even mild surprise. It has declined
to name its electors, has not put itself
on record on any state issue, and has
left the" selection of a .state committee
until the next state convention. These
things have all been done at the in

avowed purpose of placing the party

The convention was called to order
by the chairman who presented John
Boyd Thatcher for temporary chair
man. In the course of his speech on
assuming the chair, Mr. Thatcher said:
Facing Chicago, we confess that the
situation is not without peril. Circum
stances, some of which, perhaps, might
have been controlled, have created
what we believe to be an erroneous
financial faith, a faith which has
spread alarmingly in the West and
South, and which has fouftd adherents
even in the East and North. If we are
to accomplish our mission at Chicago,
we must go there to persuade erring
brothers and not to quarrel with enem
ies. The people who hold these strange
views are honest, but mistaken. We
must make them see that we are as
honest as they are, and that our views
are right. At this late day, the task
seems gigantic, but it is not hopeless.
If ever there should be a campaign of
education It is now. It is the duty of
the Democracy in the present crisis to
speak clearly on the financial question.
The party of Jefferson and Jackson has
always favored the best money in use.
The money adopted as the standard by
the most enlightened nations of the
earth. Neither consideration of exped
iency, nor the selfish Interest of
those who own silver bullion should
lead us to depart from the safe and
secure path. The people have not for
gotten that the silver purchase law,
bearing the name of an Ohio stateman,
was the work of a Republican congress
and of a Republican president. That
law made of silver a commodity and un
fitted it for its true mission, a medium
of exchange. Nor have the people for
gotten that the repeal of that law was
the work of a Democratic congress
and of a Democratic president. If it
had done no other thing in its four
years of power and responsibility, our
party should have the gratitude and con
fidence of the country for thus stopping
the coinage of a seventy-cent dollar.
Mr." Thatcher's speech was freely ap
plauded. During the call of the roll of
delegates there were enthusiastic and
protracted cheers when 1 the name of
William C. Whitney was reached, and
a demonstration of almost equal fervor
greeted the name of David B. Hill, a
few minutes later. After the appoint
ment of the various committees the
convention took a recess.
On reconvening, the temporary or
ganization was made permanent. The
committee on credentials reported In
favor of the sitting delegates in every
case, and, upon the report being adopt
ed, the Shepardltes from Kings county
and the Wayne county contestants
walked out of the convention, amid
hisses from the delegates.
The platform, which was read by
Senator Hill, was adopted, as follows:
It would be folly to Ignore and impos
sible to exagerate the gravity of the
conditions under which this conven
tion assembles. Most of the other
states of the Union have selected and
commissioned their delegates to the
national Democratic convention. By a
movement, evidently concerted, but as
we believe, ill-advised and ill-consid
ered, instructions have been given to
the delegations of a large number of
states having for their aim and pur
pose the adoption of a .new policy and
a new platform for the Democratic
No opportunity for a' fair and delib
erate consideration of such policy and
platform has been afforded the Democ
racy of the state of New York. Upon
such new matter thus proposed to be
incorporated among the tenets of the
party, it becomes the duty of the Dem
crats of New York, representing their
people, to speak in no equivocal terms.
Gold and silver—the money of the
constitution and of our fathers —each
at a parity with the other in purchas
ing power, has been the platform pro
claimed by every national Democratic
convention, which hasj thus adopted
and reaffirmed by each declaration of
party faith for a century the wisdom
of Thomas Jefferson, who said: "The
unit must stand on boih/ metals."
The action of a Republican congress,
and a Republican president deprived
sliver of its equality with gold for the
money and currency of the nation.
From 'this —for which fhe Democratic
party was in nowise responsible—and
from tSfe action of other nations fol
loiwng in |he same course, it has re
sulted'that silver has greatly declined
in commercial value and there now ex
ists a wide departure of the two met
als from the coinage standard of value
—bringing disturbance to the financial
systems of European countries as well

as to our own, and awakening there,
as here, the earnest apprehension of
statesmen and financiers.
The restoration of the equilibrium of
the two metals thus disturbed is a
problem, the solution of which is of the
greatest consequence to the prosperity
of both this country and of Europe,
but Is wholly beyond our power with- j
out the cooperation of other nations.
Such cooperation by the united efforts
of statesmen and wage-earners here
and elsewhere, Is believed to be near
at hand and to be possible to secure
by earnest and well directed efforts.
Free coinage of sliver by the United
States alone, can have no other effect
than to change our present standard
to one of silver—now a depreciated
coin—and to retard, perhaps destroy
forever, the success of the movement
now general throughout civilized
countries, for the restoration of free
bimetallic coinage In the principal
mints of the world. The proposition to
separate ourselves from the great na
tions of the world and adopt the mone
tary standard of Mexico and China
does not comport with the pride and
financial dignity of the state of New
York or the United States.
It should be resisted with the fervor
of both partisanship and patriotism
by Democrats everywhere, when the
adoption of such a course threatens, as
It does, untoiS evils to our nation's
commerce and industry.
For these reasons and with these
convictions, the Democrats of New
York in convention assembled, make j
the following declaration of their prin
ciples and appeal to the Democrats
of other states to join with them in
Incorporating these principles in the
party platform to be adopted at Chi
We favor gold and sliver as the
standard money of the country. We
are opposed as a permanent financial
policy to gold monometallism on one
hand, or to sliver monometallism on
the other hand. The pledge contained j
in the repeal of the Sherman bill, which
repeal was passed by a Democratic
congress and approved by a Democrat- j
ie president should be faithfully oar
rled out, wherein it was declared that:
"The efforts of the government should j
be steadily directed to the establish
ment of such a safe system of bimetal
lism as will maintain at all times the
equal power of every dollar coined or
issued by the United States in the
markets and In payment of debts."
We believe that such bimetallism to
which the* nation Is solemnly pledged,
can only be secured and permanently
maintained through the concurrent ac
tion of the leading nations of the
Neither this country nor any other I
country, independent and alone, is able |
to maintain it and it would be folly j
to attempt it. Being so convinced, we j
are opposed to the free and unlimited
coinage of silver in the absence of the
cooperation of other great nations.
We declare our belief that any at
tempt on the part of the United States
alone to enter upon the experiment of
free silver coinage would not only
prove disastrous to our finances, but
would retard or entirely prevent the
establishment of international bimetal
lism. Until international co-operation
for bimetallism can be secured —to
which end all our efforts as a govern
ment, and as a people should be in
good faith directed—we favor the rigid
maintenance of the present gold stand
ard essential to the preservation of our
national credit, the redemption of our
public" pledges and the keeping invio
late of our country's honor. We Insist
that all our pjg?er and silver currency
shall be kept£§»bsolutely at a parity
with gold. •?!?
The Democratic party has ever been
and still Is the hard money party, and
It will preserve that record. It is op
posed to legal tender paper money as
a part of our permanent financial sys
tem, and it refuses to sanction any pa
per currency inconvertible with coin.
The United States notes and terasury
notes being In fact debts of the gov
ernment, should be gradually paid off,
retired and cancelled. This should,
and must be done in such a manner as
to cause no contraction of the circula
ting money of the country. So long as
they exist, however, and are permit
ted to circulate as money they should ;
be redeemable at all times upon de- j
mand in the standard money of the
The Democratic party Is pledged to
the resolute maintenance of the pub
lic credit at all times and under all cir
cumstances, and it is, therefore, op
posed to the repeal of any existing I
statute which enables the secretary of i
the terasury, by the issue of bonds or
otherwise to provide an adequate fund
for the redemption In gold of our pa
per obligations whenever necessary.
We reiterate our adherence to the
principle of a tariff for revenue only, i
We are opposed to government part- j
nership with protected monopolies and
we demand that import duties, like

ST. LOUIS, June 24.—1t was stated last
night that It was through the Influence of
Archbishop Ireland that a plank proposed by
the American Protective association was not
adopted as a part of the platform at the re
cent Republican national convention in this
city. The word was £lven out that Col. E.

of patriotic associations of the United States,
was at work to get a plank In the platform

Sellers sent a copy of what he wanted em

Thomai! H. Carter, National Committeeman,
St. Louis, Mo.: The clause In the proposed
platform opposing the use of public money
for sectarian purposes and union of church
and state Is unnecessary and uncalled for. It
is urged by the A. P. A. Its adoption will
be taken as a concession to them; will
awaken religious animosity In the country
and do much harm. The Republican party
should not lower itself to recognize, directly
or Indirectly, the A. P. A. I hope the clause
or anything like It will not be adopted. Jchn
Col. Sellers, In an Interview, said he gave
a copy of the platform of the patriotic so
cieties to Mr. Foraker, and also to Senator
Gear, of lowa. He was told by the latter
that the paragraph declaring against the
appropriation of money from the United
States treasury for sectarian purposes would
be Incorporated, and that the committee had
. taken favorable action upon it. Later In the
day (Wednesday) he was surprised to learn
from a member of the committee that Its
action had been reconsidered, and that there
would be nothing In the platform In that re
gard. All this is now.explained by the tele

dispatch was referred by Chairman Carter to

men in the Wisconsin Democratic delegation
announce that they will bolt the unit rule
-Imposed upon the delegates by the state con

Chicago. They argue that if the national con

they will not be bound by the action of the
state convention, and they point to the fact
that the convention yesterday refused to re
spect the unit rule made by seme of the
counties. Having set the example, they say,
the majority cannot kick if Its action receives
similar treatment in the larger convention.

out a warrant. In the meantime the
strangers had purchased tobacco at
a grocery and bread at a bakery and
proceeded on foot southward toward
Arlington. At 6:15 the warrant for
their arrest was placed in the hands
of Sheriff Rogers and accompanied by
Louis Link, a young wagon maker, he
started In pursuit. About four miles
south of town they overtook the fu

Sheriff Rogers stepped from the buggy
remarking: "I want you fellows."
One of the strangers remarked: "Oh,
I guess not," at the same time fired
the contents of^a loaded gun Into the
ground at the sheriff's feet. Rogers
prepared to draw his revolver when
the tramp, taking deliberate aim,
poured the contents of the weapon
into the officer's breast.

States court of appeals will in a day or two
hand down a decision in the case of the Judg

that the decision will sustain the Judgment.
Attorneys for the respondent claim to have
heard from good authority that the decision
has been made, and that it is in their favor.
The decision., If rendered as supposed, is
notable In ma/r ways. It Is against, the rich

Illegally aoo fraudulently conniving with his
private s*<retary, F. W. Gates, an ex-Baptist

also- the largest Judgment ever recorded in
America against an individual, and with cost,
