Indianapolis, Sept. 4. John M. Palmer,
of Illinois, nnd Simon Bolivar Bnckner.
of Kentucky, two white-haired veterans of
the war, rival commanders of the blue and
(Tar, were nominated yesterday by the
National Democratic convention for presi

emphatic plntform which r. puilintcs the

the convent'on was contnimd in this dec
lnrntlon of tin platform:
"The IX'ini-rntttc party has survived
many defeats, but it could not survive a
viotory won in ht-hnlf of the doctrine and
policy proclaimed in its namo at Chicago.'
And so, in the language of Hammond, of
Lntiisana, this convention placed in the
hands of other nominees their banner, and
hade them fling it forth "skyward and sea
ward, high ami wide."
I'latforin Report Was Delayed.
The real work of the convention was
poon transacted when it was reached,
but the delay in reporting the platform
gave opportunity for a scries of elo
iuent and stirring speeches. The at
tendance was larger than Wednesday
nl the enthusiasm was great. Colonel
VI. C. V .Ureckinri'lfre, the famous
Hlue Orass orator; I W itt C. Warner,
of New York; H. A. Hammond, of
OeorKta; K. W. Lehman, of Missouri;
w. l. lSynum, of Indiana, and Control
ler or the Currency Kc-kels were in
turn called to the stand and stirred the
cnthur.iasm to a IiIrIi pitch. When the
platform was at last brouRht in, short
ly before 2 o'clock, it was read amid an
olmost continuous storm of applause,
and was adopted unanimously without
a word of debate. When the nomina
tions for president were called for, it
wr.s upparent that Palmer would be
nominated over his pretest, as the op
position to Praps had concentrated

only ones presented to the convention.
Cleveland and Watteram Klimin.ited.
It was known that a m?sagefrom Pres
ident Cleveland had re.ehed the conven
lion mat ne eouiu not entertain lor a mo
ment the suggestion of his own nomina
tion, and his decision was at once accented
as linnl. Ilefore the states were called for
nominations Henry Watterson was taken
out of the llts by Cnrrull, of Louisville,
who conveyed to the convention nmcssago
from the Kentucky editor in his retreat
in the mounlains of Switzerland. Wat
terson, Carroll said, four days after tho
Chicago convention had cable.l that other
candidates must be named or the Democ
racy was lost. Liter ho said he did not
want the honor, but that if nooncclso
could be found to takecommand he would
not ask others to go where ho would not
lend. Now that others were ready to ac
cept ho preferred to do brittle in the ranks.

Some of the nominating speeches were
eloquent and full of lire. Kilbourn, oi
Michigan, placed Senator Palmer in nom
ination. and there was a series of second
ing so- ernes. Burr W. Jones, of Wiscon
sin. nominated General Brncs. "the he-o
of fifty battle and the commander of the
Iron brigade." Illinois waited nntil all
the other states had been called. Then
Judge Moron, of Chicago, took the stasc
and said they had re-ojrnized from the
first that Senator Palmer was the man to
lead the fight. He was, he n il, a plat
form in himself. All his life he had
fought Autism. greenlckism. free silver
and other vagaries. But he had stalled
their lips. After seeing the temper of the
convention, however, Illinois was coin-Telb-d
to j -in hands with her sister states
in urging his nomination. I h i roll ea!

henrtT cheers, and Ut'neral Palmer was
declared tno nominee amid an enthusiastic
demonstration, during which the state
guidons wcro carried ab nt the hall in tho
wake of the as.ind.nrd of Illinois. There
never was any doubt about Buckner's

The motion was rut and carried, and
at 4:32 the first convention of the Na

The platform begins with a review
of the business situation, and the con
ditions held to lie hostile to prosperity
and proceeds: "With the Republican

is the exact text of the correspondence
which passed between D. G. Griffith,
chairman of the New York delegation,
and President Cleveland:

To Hon. Grover Cleveland:
"You will be nominated tomorrow

SIGNIFICANT LKTTtR TO IIKVAN,
Bewail Writes That Which M.iy Make II
Dryan and Wntsnn.
Chicago, Sept. 4. Chairman .Tones, of
the Democratic nntionnl committer, has
had made pnblio a letter to William J.
Bryan from Arthur Sowall, apparently
dated July 25, nt which time the Populist
convention was In session. The letter,
which is exciting a great deal of comment.
reads as follows:
"My Dear Mr. Bryan: In view of the
action of the St. Louis convention fcxlay,
I cannot refrain from giving you my
thoughts on the situation. Mv advices
are that you have Ik en nominates! as -an
didatefor president nnd Mr. Watson for
Vice president. I nlso learn through thn
press disKitrhcs that you are somewhat
undecided whether you ought to accept or
decline. Aow I desire to sav to rim with
the utmost frankness and goo l fi-cling
thnt you must not allowany ersoiial con
sideration fur i::c to influence you in your
"I desire you to do Just what you be
lieve is best for the success of the head
of our ticket. The principles we are
fighting for are so paramount to any
personal considerations that the latter
should not have any weifiht or influence
whatever with your action. I cannot
for a moment allow myself to be a
factor In any action on your part that
would in the slightest depree hazard
an electoral vote for you.
"With kind regards to Mrs. Bryan,
believe me, your sincere friend,
"Bath. Me.. July 15."
Democratic managers at headquarters
insisted that the letter had no further
significance than that Bryan would eon-
sent to receive a formal notlfl-ation from
the Popniist party in the near future, and
the publication was to forestall false ru
mors as to the attitude of Sewall toward
such a ceremony. Accompanying the let
ter is an official statement to the effect
that: "Several days ago Chairman Jones
wrote a letter to Sewall stating to him
that many Democrats throughout the
country, and especially throughout the
west, were objecting to fusion with the
Populists on the electoral tickets for the
reason that- they did hot wish to be dis
loyal to Sewall. In reply to Chairman
Jones Sewall forwarded the foregoing
copy of a letter written to Bryan."
