Florida delegation, bearing aloft a banner
Of President Cleveland, was escorted to its
hotel by a band of music, and a marching
club from Alabama came stopping along
to the stirring strains of martial music,
but these were the only bands on the
streets. The delegates came quietly, many
of the delegations being accompanied by
prominent Democrats from their states.
They aro very much in earnest, and say
they need no blare of trumpets to feed
their enthusiasm. In personne l they are
confident that the delegates will take rank
with any who have ever had seats in a na

convention today will be ex-governors.

crowd greeted Wllilam J. Bryan at the
apital of Ohio yesterday. Bryan had
the state capitol irrounds for his

as the one in which he played the star

coupled with the establishment of a
new federal banking system.
There has been considerable dis
cussion also as to the form of the
financial declaration, the divergence of
opinion being as to whether the plank
should declare for the gold standard
with or without a declaration for the
bimetallic standard by international
agreement. The money planks of most
of the gold Democratic conventions are
being examined closely with a view to
reaching a consensus of opinion. The
demand for a single declaration for
the maintenance of the gold standard
comes principally from the east, but
has strong supporters like Senator
Vilas In the west.

The Massachusetts delegation held a
meeting yesterday at which consider
able enthusiasm was manifested. There
was some talk about candidates, but
no conclusion was reached,
and a committee of five was
authorized, with Chairman Butler at
Its head, to canvass the situation with
other state delegations and determine
the best course to pursue. It was de
cided that in case there was a prob
ability of more than one ballot a com
plimentary vote should be cast for
Secretary Olney. In case there seemed
to be a probability that the convention
will agree upon a candidate upon the
first ballot the Massachusetts delega
tion will not cast a complimentary
vote, but vote for the candidate tha
gold Democrats intend to support.
Henry K. Lamb, a member of the
committee on resolutions, was in
structed to ask for the Incorporation
of a plank In the -platform indorsing
international arbitration. A currency
plank offered by Charles A. Conant
was adopted, and Lamb authorized to
present it to the committee. This
plank is one which has received the
Indorsement of the treasury department
and contains suggestions by Secretary
Carlisle, and is largely on the line
which he has advocated before the fl
