positively that ho would not under

fiirt nearly all there was of it
waa Senator Hill's speech and the recop

thusia.tirtllr welcomed by a body of his
fallow citizens than wai David Uonnett
Hill when he stepped to the frout of the
ptatfirm after State Cbuirmnu Murphy
lind named him as the temporary presi
dent. The delegates went wild and for
five minutes there was a scene that Is
wi'll-nifh indescribable. From all over
the hull the cry was "Three cheers for
I Ml," and while this call kept goiug np
the roof of the ball was trcmbliug with
the tremeudous shouts of the throng, in
welcome of itn leader.
Rvmiarka ou the Tariff Hill.
He obtained silence after awhiln and
pri.elel with his speech, first declaring
the p.mic and di-pression the result of
K"publicnn minrule. Getting to the
1 ein n-ratio tariS bill he said: "Without
Tutr.tctinR a single word which I uttered
iu the senate In criticism of the measure
while engaged jn t,e effort to perfoct It
and render it more acceptable, now that it
has beeu a"ed and become a law it must
be considered as a whole treated largely
ns a party measure nnd commuted with
the MuKmiey law. Uuiufluunced by any
personal disappointment) or any pride ot
opinion, I niuy be permitted to speak of
the measure as it is 'nothing extenuate,
nor set down audit in malice.' Of its
strictly tariff features it may truthfully be
urged that ll is a vast, improvement over
the McKiuley law, and will clearly
itoinon.itrauj its superiority as time rolls
on nnd tho business in this country sbull
adjust iuelf to provisions.
A Guild Word for Cleveland.'
"It recognizes in part at least the Demo
cratic doctrine of tree raw materials. It
ninr be safely asserted that the new law
will not cripple nor embarrass a single in
dustry in the land, nor throw oat of em
ployment a single workiugmun, nor un
duly stimulate over-production on the
line hand nor exorbitant importations ou
tlieo-.her." After urging his bearers to
ilrrp harsh criticism ot Democratic men
and measures be said: "Tub administra

tlon If He Wants It.
"There is no situation nnd there will be
no situation until William C. Whitney
arrives In New York nnd gives bis
ultimatum. If ho says 'no,' then there
tll be a hurtle on the part ot the
prominent candidates, ami undoubtedly
the springing up of uew candidates, that
would p.olong this convention over
Thurwlay," said a party leader last night.
Thin view is concurred in by every poli
tician on tbe ground. If great haste is
made the decision ol Whitney will hardly
reiteb here before the convention meets
todxy, so that the candidates i,i the field
brides him will have little chauce to
work np their individual booms and will
unitedly ask for au adjournment, so that
a r.iuvass may be mude.
This will liriug the nominations for

Frederick Cook, John Boyd Thatcher and
Judge (jay nor, and the fight will be a
lively one. Tbe friends of every one of

Tbe Oavnor boom, which languished
during the morning because of the allega
tion tout Judge bay nor would not con
sent to run, and that his telegrams here
