Silver Men Will Run the Convention

CHICAGO, June 29.—The leaders of
the Democratic silver forces in the
various states are beginning to gather,
preparatory to their meeting, which
will be held tomorrow, under the aus
pices of the bimetallic Democratic na
tional committee. The meeting is not
to be of as general a character as has
been supposed. It will be composed, in
a large measure, of representatives of
the bimetallic committee, which was
organized in Washington last August,
and there will also be present other
leading silver Democrats, to whom in
vitations have been especially extend
ed. A partial list of those expected in
cludes Senator Roach, of North Da
kota; S. B. Evans, of lowa, and also
the following members and officers of
the executive committee of the bimetal
lic organization: Senator Isham G.
Harris, Tennessee; Senator James K.
Jones, chairman, Arkansas; Senator
David Turpie, Indiana; Hon. William
J. Stone, Indiana; Hon. William li.

Commencing tomorrow, meetings will
probably be held daily until the begin
ning of the convention, and possibly
while the convention continues ) if there
appears to be occasion for them. The
general purpose of the meetings is to
exercise a supervisory care over the
interests of the silver cause in the
The conference was first decided
upon two months ago, when the silver
people were not sure of being able to
control the convention, as they now
are, and when they considered it pos
sible that it would be necessary, In the
protection of their interests, to keep an
eye upon the proceedings of the na
tional Democratic committee. It was
considered important at that time that
the silver people should have such a
perfect understanding that there
would be no doubtful moves made in
the convention or elsewhere. Now they
profess to feel so sure of- their ground
that they do not longer feel the neces
sity for such caution. Among the mat
ters to which they do propose to give
their attention are the contests for
seats in the convention, made by silver
men, and the selection of a temporary
chairman of the convention, and, pos
sibly, later, to the preparation of a
platform, and, if necessary, the selec
tion of candidates.
Major T. O. Towles. of Missouri, who
is secretary of the National Bimetallic
Democratic committee, was among the
arrivals today. In conversation he said
that probably the first work of the
committee would be.the appointment of
a sub-committee to confer with the
national Democratic committee with
the view of securing harmonious action
in the convention.
"Our committee." said Major Towles,
referring to the bimetallic organization,
"has done much of the work which has
resulted in securing a majority for sil
ver in the convention, and we want to
make sure that the cause is protected
in the convention. Whatever the pre
dilections of the national committee, I
suppose they will show no disposition
to deprive the silver majority of the
convention of its right to name the
temporary chairman and to exercise
other rights belonging to the majority,
but if such a disposition should be
manifested it would be resented and
the silver men would undoubtedly
name a candidate of their own for
presiding officer. Furthermore, they
would elect him. To prevent such a
clash as this, or a clash upon any other
point, It will be necessary that our or
ganization should have an understand
ing with the national committee."
Mr. Towle thinks that when the test
comes, the silver men will be found to
have the necessary two-thirds to nomi
nate a presidential candidate. The
bimetallic committee has from the first
studiously eliminated the question of
candidates from its consideration, but
will take the matter in hand later if
it appears necessary to secure the nom
ination of a desirable man.
Senator Harris, who, by virtue of his
position as chairman of the national
Democratic committee, will preside over
the conference, arrived to-night and
took quarters at the Sherman house.
The initial meeting of the series will
be called to order by him at noon to
morrow. The meetings will not be
open to the public.
Senator Jones, of Arkansas, who will
be a prominent figure in these meet-
Ings, confirmed the statement of Secre
tary Towles that the first work of the
conference would be to confer with the
sub-committee of the national Demo
cratic committee as to the selection of
a temporary chairman and as to con
testa if necessary. Mr. Jones says that
so far as he has heard from the silver
delegates, they practically agree upon
the main features of the platform. The
Idea is to give first place to the finan
cial plank and to make all other ques
tions, including the tariff, subservient
Asked what Influence he expected Mr.
Whitney's coming to Chicago to have
upon the convention, the senator re
plied: "None whatever. It will have
no more effect than would a very fine
spray on a ducks back. The people
have made up their minds as to what
they want, and the delegates they have
sc-nt here will be here to do their bid
ding, and no amount of Influence will
change their purpose or turn the course
"I see," continued the senator, "that
it Is susirested that business Influence
can be brought to bear to change the
votes of Southern delegates. Never
was a. greater mistake. We of the
South feel that we have already been
ground to powder and no amount of
pulverizing will affect ua. Mr. Whit

the city today, as did Congressman Shafortb,
of Colorado. They are supposed to be here
for the purpose of promoting Senator Teller's
interest in the Democratic national conven
tion, though they do not openly avow that
such is their purpose. Senator Dubois de
clined to say more than that he was hopeful
that the Democrats would nominate a man
for president upon whom the silver forces,
whether Democratic, Republican or Populistic,
could combine, and insure his election.
SOLID FOR SILVER.
Cockrell Laughs at the Idea of Any
CHICAGO, June 29.—Senator Cock
rell, of Missouri, was among today's
arrivals. He is a delegate to the con
ventlor;, and is here for the purpose of
attending the silver conference. "We
shall nominate a straight silver man
on an unequivocal silver declaration in
the platform," he said, when asked for
an expression of his views.
"I am, of course, for Mr. Bland," lie
continued, "and our delegation is in
structed for him, but if we cannot get
him, we shall get some other man who
is sound on the currency question, and
Missouri will support him at the polls.
Mr. Bland is a safe, practical man,
and if elected would be entirely reli
able as a president There can be no
doubts on that score. I have not, how
ever, devoted myself so much to find
ing presidential material as I have to
making sure of a silver majority in the
convention. That assured, we shall
have but little difficulty in finding an
available man for president."
The senator thinks the financial
question will be made the paramount
issue in the platform and that there
will be a square declaration for the
mintage of silver on terms of equality
with gold at the ratio of 16 to 1, and
without awaiting the co-operation of
other nations. He laughs at Mr. Whit
ney's suggestions of a compromise, and
says it will not be entertained. He
does not believe that an unequivocal
silver plank will drive many Eastern
men out of the party, and argues that
on the contrary it will bring many
votes to the party that cannot be
caught in any other way.
"We shall gain Immensely In the
West," he said, "and we shall not lose
in the East. The people have not yet
come to a full realization of the
strength of the silver movement. It
will sweep the country at the polls as
it has swept the Democratic party at
Senator Cockrell does not consider
that there is any danger of a bolt by
the New York or other Eastern dele
Gold Cause Not Yet Lost, He
CHICAGO, June 29.—Comptroller Eckels
reached the city today and took up quarters at
the Palmer house. Mr. Eckels says that he
does not consider the gold cause as lost by
any means, for the reason that he cannot
believe that the delegates will refuse to listen
to reason. He thinks the Southern delegates
do not yet fully realize the magnitude 6t the
position they are about to assume, or how it
will affect the business of the country, if they
persist in a declaration for the free and un
limited coinage of silver. This he is of the
opinion, can and will be made so clear to
them by the business men of the country,
that they will hesitate, and a sufficient num
ber of them change their minds to alter the
result. The gold men will, he thinks, make
their principal fight on the platform.
Nearly Three Hundred Votes Claimed
CHICAGO, June 29.—The Bland boom is the
first of the personal booms to arrive. George
W. Allen, secretary of the St. Louis Bland
executive committee, came in as an advance
agent of the boom today and opened up what
are to be Bland headquarters at the Audi
torium annex. Mr. Allen counts definitely
upon Bland's being the leading candidate
from the opening of the convention. He places
the strength of his candidate on the first bal
lot at not fewer than 200 votes, and says it
may reach as high as 275.

NEW YORK. June 29.—At City Line Park
tonight Jack Downey, of Brooklyn, and Frank
Erne, the Buffalo lightweight boxer, fought a
twelve-round draw under the auspices of the
South Brooklyn Athletic club. The men
weighed about 135 pounds and the fight was a
hot one from start to finish. The bout was
declared a draw.
In the preliminary, bouts, Jack McKeck, of
New York, and Jack' Ward, of Newark. N. J.,
fought a ten-round draw at 110 pounds. Tommy

There were a sufficient number of
politicians from the country districts,
last night to make the situation one of
interest because every blessed one of
them sat up to hear from Minneapolis.
Not that the returns from the up-river
city were necessary to bring conviction
to the most doubting as to the nominee
of the state convention, but like rooters
at a ball game, they wanted to see the
finish, even when the result was a sure
thing. The slatemakers began their

there was -little division of sentiment
as to the proper names to be presented

Gen. Clapp and his forces disap
peared soon after the convention ad
journed. Some one at the Windsor
suggested that they were hatching up
some sort of deal to make trouble for
the Clough people. But the friends of
Clapp in the opposition camp were
rather of the opinion that the general
had satisfied himself that he had not
the strength to even embarrass the
Clough people, and tha* he is too good
a Republican to harbor grudges. They
said, "Clapp has gone into retirement
for a needed rest, and will be found

At the Windsor Gen. Childs, wearing
a bicycle cap, shook hands with friends
who congratulated him on the indorse
ment he had received in the afternoon
convention. But the general smiled
when asked what he thought of his
chances for nomination. "Nothing is
certain yet," he said. "I have friends
in Hennepin and friends all over the
state. The result will be better known
after we hear from Hennepin."
•♦ ♦ •
Nate Klngsley, who also covets the
office of attorney general, was asked
the same question. "What is the situ
ation; what are your chances for nomi
nation?" And Mr. Kingsley smilingly
admitted that he baft hopes, but
that he did not kr.cv. Thomas H.
Martin, who has opened headquarters
as a candidate for secretary of state,
said he. did not know there was any
change in the situation. He is here as
a candidate, and hopes to carry enough
votes with him from the Sixth district
—Secretary Berg's,-bal lwick —to con
vince the delegates of the convention
that some other man th in Berg should
be nominated for the tffice. But the
precedence of a second lterm is largely
in Berg's favor, and those who pretend
to know, say the opposition to the pres
ent incumbent will not be sufficient to
warrant a nomination.
* • *
John li. Gibbs, who wanted to head
the ticket, was apparently the happiest
man In the city last night. He had
been defeated, knew 't, and accepted
the result in a most philosophical man
ner. He sat with a party of friends
some of them his political opponents—
in the lobby at the Merchants' last
night and admitted that he was disap
pointed, but not surprised. He had an
ambition to head the Republican-state
ticket this year, but failing, he said he
was going to see the convention
through, and then go home and work
for the ticket as hard as hp knew how.
Some one in the party suggested that
if Van Sant had not turned his
strength over to Clapp that he (Gibbs)
would have been a formidable factor
in the race, but Mr. Gibbs did not re-
The Ramsey county delegation met
at the Windsor last evening and dis
cussed matters informally. The dele
gation will probably meet to-day and
arrange matters that are necessary be

didate for lieutenant governor was
I broached in an informal fashion and it
i waa conceded that Ramsey county, in
view of the gallant fight that had been
made for Clough should have a voice
in the selection of this candidate. There
was only one name mentioned—that of
John L. Gibbs. The Ramsey county
people have not forgotten the good
work done by Gibbs on the capitol
question, and somebody said "Let's go
and see Gibbs." A defegation called on
the defeated candidate for governor at
the Merchants and had a conference.
"Would you accept a nomination for

After a moment's hesitation Mr.

If Gibbs should be nominated for
lieutenant governor) the logical con
clusion Is that the convention will go
outside the First district for an at
torney general. If so, good bye to
Child's hopes. W. B. Douglas, who
hails from Clay county, Is the most
promising candidate, lit sttch an event,
unless the counties that are pledged to
Childs —such as Rampey, for instance
are strong enough to nominate on the
first ballot. The Ranjsey county dele
gation Is a bit worried aa to what con
stitutes an Instruction to vote for cer
tain candidates. If t they can, with
honor, hedge after the flrat ballot, and
go to other candidates the attorney
general will come from the northern
part of the state —always supposing
that Gibbs, their candidate for lieuten

One of the shrewdest observers of
Republican politics In the state, who
has held office for so many years that
to miss his name from the state pay
roll would suggest death, said to a re
porter for the G 1 o\& Jast night that
the state at large is- anxious to honor
Gibbs with the second place on the
ticket. He Is strong;, not only in the
country districts, but Jp the cities. But
his nomination would? mean that the
First district must 3U|render some of
the honors to the upper part of the
It !b deemed Important among some
of the leading politicians that .the
northern part of the state be recog
nized at this time. The defeat of Con-
gressman Towne depends largely upon
the action of the Republican conven
tion in the distribution of honors so
far as the nominations are concerned.
Towne seems to be without friends,
so far as the present gathering is
concerned. One man, who said he was
one of a party to raise $200 to assist In
Towne's election last time said he
would be willing to assist in raising
three times that amount to procure
his defeat this year. The Up country
Republicans, for that reason alone are
anxious to see a strong candidate for a
state office—such as Douglas is said to
be—named at the convention.
• • •
To-day the delegates will begin to
come in crowds. All the candidates
have quarters at the Windsor and.the
battle will be fought out on Col. Mon
fort's canvas covered floors before the
convention meets. In anticipation of
the crowds the Windsor bar has been
doubled In size and the cabstands and
messenger offices of the city will be
brought within convenient distance
for the occasion.
With the returns as received from
Hennepin and other counties yesterday
and last night, it looks as though Gov.
Clough would have over 700 delegates
on the floor of the state convention to
morrow on the first ballot. This opinion

Undoubtedly the sorest group of men
who ever left a Republican convention
in Minnesota walked out of Market
hall last evening at 6 o'clock.
And they went out after the most
keenly contested fight any man ever
saw, in Ramsey county at least. It
had been to a finish, and while some
of the contestants had weakened and
asked for quarter, none was given.
Of course, Attorney General Chllds
was not on the Clough slate; but It
was only by grace of Dar Reese that
even this concession was made.
"Five of us refuse to stultify our
selves by voting," said sturdy John
F. Hilscher, of the Eleventh ward, on
the last roil call.
His desperate protest was called
forth by the arbitrary refusal of the
majority to recognize that the 110
"antls" had any rights at all.
And Fred Bryant will to-day tender
his resignation of the county central
committee. He is sick, sick, sick. A
Clough man will replace him.
Bryant may have had all the books
and papers of the organization, but the
other fellows had the votes on a show

go under the wheels, was the rule.
It must be said for the boys, though
—and the Big Four are all boys—that
they let everybody understand what
they were out to do. Their doing of
it was merciless, but all the scenes
were enacted In the open, so far as the
convention Is concerned.
Eli Warner acted the part of field
commander on the floor. Senator i
Sheehan had trained for the work of
chairman, and he was beautiful. If the j
term can be applied to the discharge !
of an ugly job. Fred Sohiffmann, the j
Little Giant of the Fourth, made every j
Leader of the Big Four.
Clough retainer understand that no
weakening would be tolerated. Dar
Reese discharged the heavy, oratorical
artillery, and never grew tired. A. C.
Clausen might have figured in the com
bination as the major general of the
whole outfit. He sat on the rear of the
platform and was alluded to a hundred
times as "the man behind you," but
he only set his teeth—and determined
to go to the state convention. There
were numerous assistants, but these
were the masters.
Their work Is done and their point Is
gained, for the time being. Still there
