Denver, Dec. -22. LicuUnar.t Hob.-on,
hero cf the Merrlmac and champion
Accican osculating expert, arrived
nerj yasterday and was given a warm
we:con:e. At 3 a reception was given In
th? rotunda. of the Drown Palace hot?
attenaeil oy no ItFS than r.uou people.
There was n-j kiFSinc. The committee
iiaving the affair in charge decided that
this feature of Litutsnant Hobs.'n's re
ception in the east should be omitteJ
and the gallant ol'ieer heartily seconded
the decision. Arrangements were made
to prevent the tu-cess of any attempts
by enthusiastic damsels, but they were
unnecessary. Though more than 1.000
women were prtsent to greet Hobso::
not one offered to kiss him. He di
livered his lecture at the Tabor Opera
House and later boarded tho Cnion Pa.
eifie train for San Franise.
When asked about recent newspaper
criticisms of his kissing he said: "In
regard ta th?se er:t:eisms of my actions
1 have nothing to deny or nothing to
take La-.k. I wish to jay. however, that
I desira to bear a'.l the responsibility
No one else must be blamed. I recog
nized rurely the patriotic tnthusiasnf of
these women and gitls in kissing them
Understand me, though. I do not w:p.h
that they be charged with any v.ror.
Most of them were srhool girls. They
were in a frame or mind that was
prompted by purely patriotic motives
I saw and reecgnized their patriotism
purely and simply just like any other
man in my position would have cyr.e.
That is all there is to it."

of the leading members of the Silver

resolutions were passed declaring the
principles cf the party as they have
been changed to meet new conditions.
an understanding was reached cs to the
issues upon which the party will unite
and which will doubtless be incorporated
in the next state platform. Brif-lly
summed up the declarations accsptahl-?
to a majority of these in the onfer
ence, were r.s follows:
The party is opposed to f-.tsicn with
any other party. The party ia unani
mously in favor of bimetallism, but tho

prominence. The Chlcaga platform may
be indorsed but there should be no
repetition of the words '16 to 1." Th
Srec nbaeks should not be-retired. Th
placing of the national currency in the
hands of private corporations or r:a
tional banks is bitterly opposed. The
formation of trusts is condemned. T.ie
policy of imperialism, or of expansion,
and the annexation of Cuba and Porio
Rico is unad vsaiil.
