Chicago Democrats to Bo Ignored.
The matter that is troubling the local
Democracy just now is the action alleged
to have been taken by the men in charge
of the convention with reference to the po
litical situation in this city. It Is asserted
that factionisiu in the local Democracy Is
to be sat upon. Colonel John L Martin,
the scrgcant-at-artus, is the' man who has
been chosen to do tho sitting. The way
the thing is to .bo done is to ignore the
Democrats of Chicago altogether in the
arrangements for tho convention. Not a
single doorkeeper even will bo appointed
from Chicago, and as a result there will
be no packing the hall by paid gold or sil
ver shoutcrs, if the national committee
can help it. Colonel Martin, in speaking
01 tne matter, snut:
- - wuim a. martin nays.
"I have had delegations from all sides.
and every element of tho local Democracy,
wnit on me with lists of names of persons
whom they wanted appointed. They pre-
Bcntea incur reasons lor desiring the ap
pointment nf these persons, and I listened
to them. Then I carefully refrained from
appointing ono of them. I treated all the
contending elements alike, and as a result
there will not le a single doorkeeper from
Chicago. Xot that I have not the hishest
admiration for tho Chicago Democracy
and the men at its head, but I think too
much of these gentlemen to put them in a
position where they would have to yield
to their friends," and Colonel Martin
smiled meaningly. do not propose.
anyway, to fill up the hall with employes,
as was done at St. Louis. My employes,
all told, won't number over SOU"
Arrangements for the Praa.
"The press arrangements." continued
the sergeant-at-arms, will be as perfect as
anything sublunary can be. I have 438
press seats arranged, and that will be
more than they had at St. Louis, where
there were enough seats. In St. Louis,
nowever, tne newspaper men were not
protected from tho intrusion of outsiders
and parties who hod no business there.
In this convention no such thing can or
will happen. The newspaper men will go
in at the same entrance with the dele
gates, and that entrance will be entirely
separated from the entrances for the gen
eral public. Our arrangements are not
yet completed, hut they will be found to
be perfect when he tiroejeomes."
Altegrd Discovery by Martin. V
In connection with the precautions
taken by Colonel Martin against a crowd
ing ot the convention hall by local Dsrnn
rrats a story got around to the effect that
both gold and silver Democratic leaders
here were making extensive preparations
for a scene in the convention hall and
were willing to add all they could to the
impressivencss of It. Both sides showed
themselves so willing, indeed, anxious, to
recommend "trusty" men for doorkeepers
that Colonel Martin became suspicious
and started in on o quiet little investiga
tion, in the course of which he discovered,
so It Is said, an organized arrangement on
the part of the adherents of both factions
on the money question to pock the hall
ana matte demonstrations.

TILLBAN SPEAKS GOTHAM.
Poors Hot Shot Into tho Banks of 'tho Gold
Xew York, June 98. The first organ
ized movement in behalf of. free silver in
this city was inaugurated last night at
Cooper Union, and the hall held a vast as
semblage. The meeting was under the
auspices of the American Silver Organiza
tion, which has for its'' sponsors the
"Young Democracy," better known as ex
Sheriff James O'Brien's followers. Sena
tor Benjamin Tillman, of South Carolina,
the chief speaker, received an ovation as
he walked upon the plaftqrm. He made
one of his characteristic addresses.
In the course of his speech he compared
the wealth of the east with that of the
west and south and added: "The south
and west cultivates corn and wheat. The
eastern man chiefly cultivates bonds. The
eastern wealth-gatherer sits on velvet cush
ions waiting for dividends to ripen which
ne gatners from trusts and combines."
Some one in the audience said: "We
nestled for it," and Tillman quickly re
plied: "I say that if you claim you are
more economical, have any mora sense, or
are more industrious, that you are liars.
'How many of you here have got wealth?
If such an one has wandered in here he
will go out and hang himself before morn
ing, for he knows that he-has stolen H.
The millions in your coffers have been
stolen from the rank and file." A man
demanded the right to ask the speaker if
the gold bugs hod gobbled up all the
money, and the people were paupers, if the
silver bugs did not do the same thing.
we Have not," said Tillman, "had a
silver bug in the United States since 1873,
but we are coming at Father Abraham,
900,000 strong. We expect to elect a presi
dent, a House and a senate without men
At the conclusion of the speech free sil
ver resolut ions were adopted, and William
P. St. John was delegated to go to the
Democratic and Populist conventions to
press them upon the delegates. A call for
silver convention in St. Louis, July SS,
to nominate or indorse a presidential can
didate was read, closing tho meeting.
PEFFEB NOT BOOMIXO TELLER.
Hauls Tan boner k rt Al. Over tho Coals for
That fit. Louis Address.
Washington, June 38. Senator Pcffer
has left for home. 1 Before starting he said
concerning the Populist attitude on the
presidential - question: "The recent pro
nunciamento of a few Populist gentlemen
at St. Louis, urging the Democratic con
vention to nominate Mr. Teller was in
my judgment an impertinence, and it was
treacherous so far as it atteraDtcd to sneak
for the Populist party as a whole. These
gentlemen spoke without authority from
the Populist party, and I de not believe
tho party will sustain them. They had
not conferred with the party and had been
given no commission to speak for it.
"Personally I have a high regard for Mr.
Teller, but I have no idea that the old
party spirit of the Democratic organiza
tion will bo so far relaxed as to bring
about his nomination. I regard the In
tegrity and perpetuity of the Populist party
as essential to carrying out the plans of
reform wo have espoused. The monej
question is but one of these
I had hoped there might be some amal
gamation of Democrats, Populists, silver
men and all others, in a new declaration
of principles and, if need be, a now name.
But the time for that has gone by, and all
that remains is for the Populist party to
maintain its integrity by nominating its
own candidate on its own platform. Con
cerning the Populist candidates I person
ally favor the nomination of Governor
Holcombe, of Nebraska, for first place en
lhe ticket" He thought Tom Watson, of
Georgia, the man for second place.
