GOLD PLAfIS FIXED
VERY DOUBTFUL IF AXY DELE
GATES WILL LEAVE THE CON
MOST RADICAL ACTION
MILL BE TO FOLLOW 7 EXAMPLE
SET BY MONTANA AT ST.
ARE FOR HILL TOOTH AND NAIL.
The E: tern Men Are in Hopes That
Thrj .May be Able to Elect
CHICAGO. July 6.— The situation in
the Eastern gold standard camp has
crystallised enough to enable one to
get more of a settled idea of a plan
than has hitherto prevailed. The gold
men will not as a body leave the con
vention, and it is doubtful if any dele
gates take that course. The leaders
are all against it, though it is believed
that William C. Whitney would be
pleased to see another convention with
a gold standard platform.
The most radical action that the gold
men will take has practically been set
tled, and that is to follow the plan
adopted by the Montana delegation in
the natioi.al Republican convention In
St. Louis, to remain in the convention
hall, with the notification that they will
act in their individual states, as to sup
port of the platform and national tick
et, as the Democrats of their states de
sire. But even this latter proposition
Is tempered, and the action may not
take place if the silver majority does
not inordinately trample upon the
rights and privleges of the gold minor
In these resolves the gold men say
they are backed by the unbroken Dem
ocratic principles of majority rule.
Such Tammany men as Senator Can
tor, Congressman Sulzer and John C.
Sheehan assert that they will abide by
what the majority does, and will not
bolt or refuse to vote on any question.
The majority of the New York dele
gates are apparently of the same mind,
and Massachusetts and Pennsylvania,
the other two leading states in the gold
movement, are in sympathy.
As to the action of the convention
on the temporary chairmanship, the
delegates will fight tooth and nail for
Hill, and they are very chipper tonight
"with the hope that they may secure a
number of silver men to aid them. It
is even said that the gold men, to
maintain a show of fairness, will vote
to unseat the gold men of Nebraska
seated by the committee, and will ask
In return support from the silver men
for the Michigan gold men, and for
Hill. The silver men, on the contrary,
seem to be afraid tonight that there
will be a division of their forces on the
Hill question that may hurt their
It is rumored that Boles has been
dickering for the Eastern vote, and
a few silver states that have had Vice
President Stevenson in mind, are also
looking to New York and other gold
states for votes. Pennsylvania is not
In this alleged dicker, remaining faith
ful to Pattison. Altgeld and Senator
Jones are much disturbed and demand
a short convention, but the gold men
cay that it will be a prolonged one.
The gold men are Jubilant over the
fact that they have defeated the silver
men's plan for a caucus to settle a
platform, candidate and length of the
convention. Senator Cantor, who Is
delegate-at-large In place of United
States Senator Murphy, said tonight:
"We have beaten them in three
things: they can't get a caucus; they
can't limit the convention to one day,
and they couldn't defeat Hill in the
When the New York delegation met
tonight, it was noticeable that a num
ber of men with Boies badges were In
the room. Just before the meeting, five
members of the Alabama delegation
came to Gov. Flower and said:
"Governor, we have been forbidden
by our unit rule from voting for Hill
for chairman, but we will help him out
by voting for Whitney, so as to take
strength away from the silver candi
Mr. Whitney came over to the New
York meeting and was there for about
fifteen minutes. When he came out
he was told by the Associated Press

"You may deny that emphatically.
I am not in favor of a bolt. I do
not want a bolt, and I shall urge that
no such action be taken. We are

Things He May Be the Dark
CHICAGO, July 6.— No McLean badges
have yet appeared among the delegates, but
: the boom of the Ohio journalist is met with
I everywhere. It is underneath the surface so
; far, but the friends of Mr. McLean are pre
i pared to bring it to the front at the first
I opportunity. They expect to see the two
; leading candidates, Bland and Boies, pull
| each other down, and open the door for a
| dark horse. Unless they are convinced be
fore the presentation of names is called for In
the convention that their champion has much
more than a fighting chance, his name will
■ not be formally offered for first place on
| the ticket. The suggestion of McLean's can
didacy has met with strong favor among
many of the delegates, but the drift of eenti-
I ment seems to be that he cannot possibly
reach through a first place, and must con
tent himself with the tail of the ticket. This
is all his friends originally hoped for, but
with the prospects of a big tangle ahead
they have been encouraged to hope that
they may be able to land him at the head
of the ticket.
BOISE 3IEN HAPPY.
They Have Not Overestimated His
CHICAGO, July 6.— lt is asserted by the
Boies managers that It Is unnecessary for
j ex-Gov. Boies to come to Chicago, and his
canvass from now on will be conducted by
the men on the grounds. The managers say
that everything Is progressing most favor
ably, and the reports from their canvassers
of the various delegations indicate that they
| have not overestimated the second choice
[ Boies strength. They say that the force of
the argument made by the opponents of Boies
on the labor question, because he did not
approve of the 1894 strike, has been entirely
broken by the presence of Grand Master
Sovereign, of the Knights of Labor, who has
been at the headquarters and with the man
agers of Boies' candidacy during a great por
tion of the day. Mr. Sovereign declared him
self in favor of the nomination of Boies.
INABLE TO DECIDE.
Louisiana as Yet Has No Favorite
CHICAGO, July 6.— The Louisiana delega
tion gave a very exhaustive hearing to the
I representatives of all the different candi
dates today, including the free silver Repub
licans who advocated Teller's nomination. A
vote was postponed until tomorrow morning.
The sentiment of the delegation was divided
between Boies, Bland, Teller and Matthews.
There is a considerable feeling in favor of
Teller, but the strong sugar Republican
movement in Louisiana make Teller's friends
fearful that his nomination might furnish
many of the Democrats of the state their
coveted excuse for voting for McKinley.
Street Demonstration in Honor ot
CHICAGO, July 6.— The first street pa
rade of the convention was organized tonight
by the Bland contingent. The Bland clubs
of St. Louis and Kansas City and the To
peka Flambeau club, with a few unattached
enthusiasts formed the procession. With their
bands and a wagonload of fireworks, the
thousand marchers managed to make a
great display in proportion to their num
bers. Portraits of "Silver Dick," mammoth
silver dollars and such legends as "Free
Silver and Free Man," "The Producing
Classes Protest Against 200-cent Dollars"
and "Bland Will Carry Missouri by 150,000"
were conspicuous in the line.
PLACE FOR WHITNEY.
He Will Be on the Floor of the Con
CHICAGO, July 6.— William C. Whitney will
be in a delegate's seat on the floor of the
j convention tomorrow. He has been placed In
I the seat of A. P. Fitch, of the Fifteenth New
i York district, and will thus be able to take
i part in the debate that will follow the silver
j men's move. This is an unexpected thing,
he not having been elected as a delegate from
New York, upon hie own expressed request
when the state convention met there.
Kansas for Bland.
CHICAGO. July 6.— The Kansas delegation
today adopted a resolution to cast its twenty
votes as a unit for Bland. This result was
reached only after a long and stormy meet
ing. All of the delegates, as was developed,
were personally in favor of Bland, but a fac
tion of them made a vigorous protest against
the methods by which the attempt to secure
instructions for him were carried on.
Sonth Carolina Spilt.
CHICAGO, July 6.— The South Carolina
delegation held a meeting tonight to discuss
presidential preferences. Some differences
were developed as to the wisdom of standing
by Senator Tillman, and after a somewhat
heated discussion it was decided that the del
egation tshould not vote as a unit, but that
each delegate should vote his personal pref

GEN. WARNER, PRESIDENT OF THE
UNION, AUTHOR OF THE
BONDS AND TARIFF TOUCHED ON.
Union Has Decided to Support Any
Free Silver Man Who May be
CHICAGO, July 6.— The National Bi
metallic unior., of which ' Gen. A. J.
Warner, of Ohio, is president, met here
today, and will continue in session un
til the close of the convention. The
sentiment for Senator Teller was
strong, and after the meeting the mem
bers present dispersed to visit the dif
ferent delegations. They declared It to
be the sense of the union, however, that
it should support the nominee of the
convention, provided he was a silver
man nominated on a silver platform.
Gen. Warner has proposed and will
submit a financial plank to the commit
tee on resolutions. It follows:
"The paramount isjjue on which the
two great parties now go before the
people is between the single gold stand
ard, sustained by gold bonds, on the
one side, and the constitutional stand
ard of gold and silver, and no bonds,
on the other. Silver as well as gold
has been money in all ages and down
to 1873 the two metals, conjointly, con
stituted the standard of value for the
world. In the formation of our con
stitution gold and silver conjointly
were made the standard money of the
"The act of 1873, overthrowing this
standard by demonetizing silver and
substituting In its place the single
standard of gold, was devised in the
interest of a moneyed combination, for
eign in its origin, and clandestinely im
posed upon our peole. It has resulted
in doubling the purchasing power of
gold and reducing by one-half the
prices of the products of labor, thus
continually Increasing the weight of
debts and taxes and diminishing the
power of debtors to pay them, result-
Ing in interminable business assess
ments, failures and bankruptcies.
"It has robbed industry of its legiti
mate profits, sacrificing the producer to
enrich the non-producer. It has imper
illed business enterprises, paralyzed
the productive energies of the Ameri
can people and forced vast numbers of
willing workers into idleness. It is
fast reducing the American farmers
from a condition of Independent own
ership to that of homeless tenantry,
while building up colossal fortunes in
our money centers, thua threatening
the very foundation of free institutions.
Nor can prosperity return to us while
these conditions exist, but, on the con
trary, times must grow worse, as gold
continues to Increase in value and
prices continue to fall, as they must
under the single gold standard.
"To the continuance of this policy
advantageous to creditor nations but
ruinous to us, we are unalterably op
posed and we declare for a distinc
tively American policy for Americans.
And to this end, we demand the im
mediate repeal of the iniquitous act
of 1873, and a return to the constitut
ional standard of gold and silver by
the restoration, by this government,
independent of any foreign power of
the unrestricted coinage of both gold
and silver Into standard money at the
ratio of sixteen of silver to one of gold,
upon the terms of exact equality, ex
isting prior to 1873; the silver coin to be
a full legal tender, equally
with gold coin for all debts and dues
public and private.
"We hold that the power to issue and
control a paper currency is insepar
able from the power to coin money; and
demand that all currency intended to
circulate as money, should be issued
and controlled in its volume by the
general government only, and should
be legal tender. We are opposed to
the retirement of the greenback cur
rency or to the contraction of the cur
rency In any form.
"We are opp osed to a permanent
national debt. We are opposed to the
issue of interest-bearing bonds In time
of peace, or at any time, except by the
explicit authority of congress; and we
especially condemn as unstatesmanlike
and unpatriotic the policy of creating
an endless debt in the vain attempt to
maintain the gold standard by borrow
"We demand the payment of all coin
obligations of the United States in ac
cordance with the laws under which
they were created, in either gold or
silver coin at the option of the govern
ment and not at the option of the
creditor. We affirm that revenues suf
ficient to meet the necessary expendi
tures of government and gradually ex
tinguish the national debt, should be
raised without borrowing.
"Customs duties have ever been our
chief source of revenue and such they
must continue to be. The protection
therefore afforded to American pro
ducers should be extended to all in
dustries alike and not to a few only;
and should be made to benefit labor
and not to foster monopolies and trusts;
but no tariffs can prevail to keep
prices under a gold standard.
"And now. knowing our cause to be
just, and believing its right settlement
must precede all other reforms, we
appeal to the people of our common
country to hold in abeyance for the mo
ment, all other Issues, however Import
ant they may appear, and unite in one
supreme effort to free themselves and
their children from the tyranous dom
ination of the money power, a power
more destructive than any other which
has ever fastened itself upon a civil

is no longer capable of maintaining its
authority In the island of Cuba, or of
fulfilling its treaty obligations, and the
destruction of American property in the

ONE PLANK PLATFORM.
Delegate* from Kentucky Are Op
posed to It*
CHICAGO, July 6.— The Kentucky delega
tion met tonight and ratified the organiza
tion agreed upon in caucus today, except
the name of Gen. P. Wat H»rdln was sub
stituted for that of Senator Blacburn at
the latter 'B request. Zaek Phfelps, of Louis
ville, one of the two sound money delegates,
offered a resolution requesting the member
of the committee on resolutions, as is the
wish of the Kentucky Democrats, in addi
tion to the currency plank, to see that the
platform shall contain distinct enunciations
of the time-honored principles of the party.
Mr. Phelps stated that it was rumored that
an effort would be made to adopt a single
plank platform, and this resolution was In
tended as a declaration against it. John S.
Rhea stated that Senator Blackburn had
given him similar information, and had ex
pressed his opposition to a single plank plat
form. After a long discussion, the resolution
W. B. Haldeman, of Louisville, the other
of the two delegates from the Louisville dis

NEW YORK, July 6.— A member of the
editorial staff of the Daily American Wheel- i
man left tonight for Chicago where a good

cratic convention on behalf of the wheelmen, j
It declares for better roads, and suggests |
that the government extend Its investigations j
thereon on a brdader and more efficient
j scale. It then declares that the larger and
I more populous states should Improve their j
roads by such a system as will provide for i
the payment of a substantial source of ex- j
pense by future generations, by whom It
says the profits and benefit of good roads
will be enjoyed.
Sewall for Vice President.
CHICAGO, July 6.— A movement has been
inaugurated In the interest of Hon. Arthur
Sewall, of Maine, for the vice-presidential j
nomination. The suggestion is said to have i
been favorably accepted by many silver men, !
because of Mr. Sewall's record on the finan- |
clal question, and because it is believed "that
his nomination would go far towards relieving
the ticket of the charge of having been
selected on sectional grounds."
CHICAGO, July 6.— A number of women
suffragists, some eighteen in all, have ap
peared and are living at private houses.
They Intend asking the committee on reso
lutions to give them five minutes each to

committee will do this, the furthest they will j

TO THE FINISH.
DISPUTE IN THE HARRIET RACE.
St. Paul Man Announced as Winner
But the Decision Changed
Riot ran rampant at the Twin City
cycle track, Eleventh avenue south
and Third, last evening. The occasion
was the finish of the great six-day
ladies' bicycle race, in which notably
Dottie Farnsworth, of Minneapolis, !
and Tillie Anderson, of Chicago, have
taken part. In anticipation of the ex
citing finish between these two ladies, i
the management had made an advance i
of admission, which was more than \
double that of other evenings. The j
race was to start at 8:45, and when the !
management made the announcement '
that Miss Farnsworth, on account of
sickness, could not take part in the j
finish of the race, and she, therefore j
would have to forfeit her rights, as
the management would have the race
go on anyhow, the crowd, as a unit
grew wild. The racers were all lined
up for the start, when the spectators
broke through the railing and made the
"You can't run the race." "Give us
back our money." "Call the race off,"
and other exclamations were heard on
The management refused to refund
money, but were willing to give passes.
The racers had started, but the beach
ers had jumped over the track and
dragged the girls from their wheels
Everything was riot in a moment The
people began to tear and break every
thing In sight; they flocked on the out
side, where they were joined by hun
dreds of such as were trying to see the
race for nothing. They immediately
began to belabor the ticket office, and
made vigorous claims for their money
which was point blank refused.
A message had immediately been
sent to police headquarters for a posse
of officers, which was in a hurry sent
down. Upon the arrival of the police
the crowd seemed to grow wilder, and
a lively hand-to-hand fight was soon
going on between the officers and th«
angry mob. It was a long time be
fore the officers could in any manner
gain control of them, and it was after
the hardest work that the Minneap
olis police has had for some time that
this was finally accomplished. Clubs
had to be used, and in some instances
revolvers were flourished. Several of
the officers were struck by flying
rocks, and in some Instances painful,
though not dangerous, wounds were
| received. Little by little the crowd,
however, seemed to regain its senses,
and at a late hour departed by the
different streets and avenues.
Amy Calgren, one of the riders, was
among the injured. It was feared
when she left the scene of the excite
ment that her left arm was broken.
She was assailed by a burly fellow!
who evidently thought she was partly
responsible for the trouble. A woman,
said to be Miss Calgren's mother, ran
to the girls assistance and belabored
the fellow bo stoutly -that he dodged
back Into the crowd.
Only one arrest was made as the re
sult of the riot. The prisoner, who re
fused to give his name was taken in
for making a determined attack on one
of the officers.
Not since the street railway riots six
years ago has such a riotous demon
stration of a destructive nature oc
curred In this city. The intervening
years have passed smoothly and the re
putation of the people of the city for
moderation and evenness of temper
spread far and wide. The work of last
evenir- cyclonic in its effects was
equally so In its origin and beginning
There were 5,000 people within the fence
seated on the grand stand and lining
the Meachers when the racers ap
peared. Just before the riot
broke out Manager Head was
about to make the announcement to
the effect that Farnsworth was sick
and could not start, but that she would
be all r:-ht for this evening. The
amatures would finish their race and
to-night the finish of the professional's
race would take place. That all those
who wished it could get their money
back at the gate and those who were
satisfied with the conditions could get
passes which would admit them for the
professional race this evening. Mr.
Head was using the manophone in mak
ing the announcements. He had near
ly stated the facts to the grand stand,
when the crowd on the bleachers raised
a yell and wanted to know what was
up. Head turned the instrument to
wards them and had just stated that
Farnsworth was sick and could not
start when some one raised a cry and
in less time than it takes to tell it, the
crowd on the bleachers was pouring on
to the track. Manager Head states that i
the reason that the public was not in
formed of the facts was that Mis 3
Farnsworth fully expected up to with
in 15 minutes of the start to be in the
race, but then her doctor forbade it.
A STRING ON FIRST PRIZE.
How a St. Paul Man Fails to Win
the Haorrlet Road Race.
The Northern Cycle company's race
at Harriet yesterday was run in 39:08,
corrected time over a 15 mile course
D. R. Carmichael, of St. Paul, was first
announced an winner, but at 11 o'clock
last nisrht the management claimed
that their latest figures showed that a
Minneapolis man, W. R. Keller was
actually faster than the outsider. He
was accordingly given first time and
Carmichael second, John Lidberg third,
and L. R. Stevens fourth. The place
prize was won by O. D. Farlin.
The time was slower than expected,
as the track was in perfect condition,
and the arrangements, except perhaps
those of the handicap men, and starters,
were perfect. It was hoped that the
time would be considerably under that
Last year over the same course, but
in a 20 mile race, the time of the winner
was 54:17, which makes yesterday's
race show up rather poorly in compari
son. There was no good reason why
better time should not have been made.
All the conditions were favorable to at
least a race which might lower the
track record, to say nothing of a state
or national road record. The fault is I
said to have been with the handicap
pers and the scratch men who persis
tantly refused to set a fast pace. Loaf
ing on the further side of the lake was
the rule of the race.
Llnd Disappoints Pops.
People's parly men la Minneapolis were a
very discouraged' lot yeetef diy. ' TTp to Ston
day they had expected that John Lind would
accept the gubernatorial nomination and the
announcement iv a Dublished interview that
he woutd not, blighted their fair hopes, for
they had hailed him as a veritable Moses.
That and the uncertainty over the time ol
calling their state convention, a bit of news
which they are now awaiting, cast a heavy
gloom over the sky of their political world.
NEW BRIGHTON TO RESUME.
Promise of Renewed Activity at the
Stock Yards Alibatoir.
The fatted calf, as well as the well
larded porker, the gamey mutton and
the juicy lamb will soon be offei-ed up j
as a sacrifice to the people of New j
Brighton. The number of the slaugh
tered ones will be as great as they
ever were In the history of that pack-
Ing suburb, and this resumption of |
business in the sometime vacant ab
batolrs Is said to be but the forerunner
of business on an immensely larger
scale, to be conducted by a reorganized
stock yards company, which is expected
to take hold and make matters boom in
When the Twin City Packing com
pany and C. J. Alloway were compelled
to reduce their business to asmaller
scale and remove to the Minnesota
Transfer, the New Brighton plant stood
vacant for a time. This was a state of j
affairs that was not pleasing to Re
ceiver Roby, and he at once entered
into negotiations looking to the resump- j
tion of operations. He succeeded In
persuading Peter Van Hoven, of St.
Paul, formerly manager 6f the Twin
City company, to organize a new com
pany and resume slaughtering at New
Brighton on as large a scale, at least,
a3 the old company. Van Hoven. did
not have quite as much capital as he i
needed, and it was to assist him that '
Mr. Robey applied to the courts and !
was granted permission to borrow
I Mr. Robey has also received assur
ances from a number of buyers that
they will be on hand to. purchase cattle
at the yards. This will make the mar
ket as good as it ever was, pending the
| reorganization of the stock yards com- '
pany, when it is expected that business ]
will be conducted on a scale of suf- !
ficient magnitude to make Minneapo
lis quite a packing center, and also a
very respectable cattle market.

spoons "to feed the Pyihian babies," at so
much per spoon, was referred to the chair
man and secretary.
The secretary was requested to communi
cate with the state military authorities, also
I with the war department, with a view of
: securing the loan of cavalry saddles to be
used by the mounted knights in the great
parade. As "Uncle Loren" Flatcher is look
ing after this little matter, the knights al

EKDEAVORERB ARE OFF.
Mlnneapolln Contingent Departs for
the Convention City.
The union station was the scene of much
laughter and merriment last evening from
1 about 6:45 to 7:15. The delegates to the Y.
P. S. C. E. national convention at Washing
! ton took their departure, going by way of
I the Burlington road as far as Chicago, at
which place their coaches will be attached to
I the Baltimore & Ohio train, which leaves
I that city at 11 this morning. There wpre
about seventy-five who took the train, but
quite a few of these will only go as far as
Chicago. Bicycles were very much in evi
dence and some confusion ensued when it
was found that a charge would be made for
the checking of the wheels. Some arrange-
I ment will be made, however, whereby the
I owners of the bicycles will be refunded the
j money they were obliged to hand over before
their beloved wheels were safely stowed
away in the baggage car.
CYCLISTS IX POLITICS.
Permanent Committee Appointed to

mittee was made permanent at a meeting h j ld
last evening in the Commercial club. The j
members comprise representative bicyclists
from each ward in the city. The general or
ganization will be large and Influential. The
committee voiced a protest against the pro
posed lamp and bell ordinance and each mem
ber was instructed to confer with alder
man of his ward and give an expression to the

Russian Thistle Mast Go.
The Russian thistle is again bothering the
county commissioners. There is a law which
makes it a misdemeanor for a municipality to
allow these pests to go to seed, and yet noth
ing has been done to exterminate them. This
year the county commissioners will try to get
the city to do something. They will appoint
a day of limit for their life, and if any
thistles are found after that date there will
be trouble, for the street commissioners who
let them remain there. It is reported that
the pests are extra prolific this year, and
will require a great amount of energy in the
extermination on account of the wet season.
Large Batch of Prisoners.
Sunday following so close on the heels of
the "glorious Fourth " made the number of
prisoners that appeared before Judge Kerr,
in the municipal court yesterday morning
unusually large. The sum total of the of
fenders was seventjMour, forty-nine of whom
were drunks, twenty-one vags, four assault
and battery cases.
