the gavel temporarily while the
crowd called for Senator IMackburn.
He is one of the silver idols and his
appearance set the convention wild.

His appearance was greeted with
cheers while his opponents showered
upon him sputter of hisses. As
oon as he could make his voice
heard he shouted: "In behalf of the
state of Illinois I suggest that this
convention give Hon. David C. Hill,
of New Tori, an opportunity to ad.
dress it." This stroke brought out
demands for Hill. He was not in the

are angry this morning and have
been holding conferences in the var

ver men are seating delegations
without apparent cause except to
aid them in pushing their plans
through and-that they have thrown
democratic precedent to the winds.
Hill, Whitney and other leaders are
finding it difficult to stem the tide of
anger in the New York delegation,

lead to a bolt.

The committee on credentials met at 8
p. m. for ware and tne nrst Dusmess taten
up was the Michigan contest. John A. At
wood, of Kansas, was elected chairman.
Smith Weed, of Xew York, getting but
two votes. The fight over tho Michigan
ease was hot nnd acrimonious, and each
side was supported by a mass of affidavits
full of accusations against the "other fel
low." When Ellott Stevenson was speak
ing for the gold men he was frequently
interrupted with such remarks as "That
is a lie."
A vote was reached at last and stood 27
to 10 in favor of seating the four contest
ing silver delegates McGrath, Fisher,
HUick and Mc-Knight. The states voting ;
for the gold faction were Connecticut,
Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minne
sota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New
Jersey, Xew York, Pennsylvania, Rhode
Island, South Dakota, V ermont, w iscon
sln, Alaska and Oklahoma. These states
refused to vote on the ground that tne evi
dence was insufficient : Florida, Georgia,
North Dakota, Oregon and Virginia.
This vote reversed the action of the na
tional committee, which seated the gold
delegates. As Michigan was instructed by
the state convention to follow the unit
rule its vot in convention will be changed
from gold to silver by this action. In the
Nebraska contest the committee voted
unanimously to sent the Hryan contest
ants. As no ono was present to present
any contest from Nevada the committee
decided to recognize none from that state.

Xot a Imlt from the convention; that was
decided against; but a bolt from the ticket
and the platform that tho convention
makes. F.very suggestion was received
with applause. Kv;ry contrary sugges

significant resolution suggested by Irish,
of California, nnd adopted unanimously:
"That each sound money delegation select
a member to return to his state nnd get
tho views of his party on the matter nnd

Gray) in July if possible.

with tho nid of Colonel Fellows, held up

Franklin MaeVengh, of Illinois, nnd
Delegate-at-Lnrge Coudert. of Xew York,

Hobart replied. His speech was a contrast-

At 2:15 a. m. today the sub-commit tee on
platform finished its labors and the gold
men went to Hill's room to prepare a
minority report. The following is a synop
sis of what the majority agreed upon: The
nnncinl plank leads the platform with a
duration for free silver and denounces
the Issue of bonds in time of peace; de
mands that the power to issue notes be
ikenawav from national Imnks.
The platform then declares for a tariff
for revenue only, and that the re-enact
ment of the McKinley bill would be a
menace to prosperity; asks for a constitu
tional amendment permitting tho enact
ment of an income tax ; expresses sym
pathy for Culm; demands that pauper

by the remaining members of the delega

The scouts and skirmishers who came

that it Is all up with Uncle Horace.
Notwithstanding tho fact that the entire
twenty-six votes were cast with the silver
