W.sniM;To .Tan. 22. -"-Chicago gets it;
that is, the. Democratic national conven
tion. The big banquet hall of the Arlington
bad been transformed yesterday into a
veritable bower of national ensigns. There
were flags to the right, left, liefore. behind
and above. Over the rostrum, upon which
sat the chairman, and from which was
poured forth such a flood of oratory, the
stars and stripes was dextrously entwined
and draped in pleasing designs. Above,
like clouds, the flags gently nndulated to
the influence of the ventilating currents
of air and in the corners the star-spangled
banner, prism-like, reflected its colors iu
the glow of the incandescent lights, and
all this decoration was for the delectation
of the Democratic national committee
and those who appeared before it to swear
to the desirability of holding the national
convention in their particular cities.
Chicago a Dark Horse.
In this convention fltht Chicago was a
dark horse. Everybody was afraid of the
Windy City, and although everybody bad
leen assured that Chicago did not ask for
the prize, there was a lurking suspicion
that she was not to be trusted, and might
spring a small game at some stage of the
proceedings. Outside of Chicago Milwau
kee had the lead apparently up to the time
of the ccumittee meeting. How things
went later is given below. Promptly at
noon Chairman Brice called the committee
to order, and Commissioner Koss, of the
District, made a short welcoming address,
to which Brice briefly replied.
Decided the Convention Pate.
After the speeches the committee went
into executive session. The Montana con
test was decided in favor of C. A. Broad
water, with A. W. Lyman ns proxy. The
following committee was appoint to draft
and send resolutions of condolence to the
families of deceased members of the na
tional committee Messrs. William I
Scott, of Pennsylvania, and II. D. Mc
Henry, of Kentucky viz.: Ransom, of
North Carolina, chairman; Watterson. of
Kentucky; Purcill, of North Dakota;
IXHjneyfc of Tennessee, and Harrity of
Choosing a Convent ion Date.
At 2:40 p. m. the committee took a recess
until 3:43. At that, hour Sullowny of New
Hampshire, moved that June 21 be select
ed as the date of holding the next Demo
cratic convention. Watterson suggested
July 5. Gorman supported June 21, and
Watterson, stating that he was not par
ticularly wedded to any date, withdrew
his motion and June 21 was selected. Then
in open session t he bearing of city boomers
was liegnn. The banquet hall was pla
carded with the pictures of the principal
buildings in the various competing cities.
Chairman Brice stated that earn city
would be allowed twenty minutes to pre
sent its claim.
THE ORATORS GO TO WORK.
;iod Words Snid for a Number of Com
William M. liamsay was the first speak
er, representing Cincinnati. He said that
the small legend printed upon the cards
distributed around the hall announced in
unmistakable terms that 1 he campaign of
'92 is about to open. The first steps taken
in the opening of the campaign should be
carefully considered. "1 am directed to
present to you the name of Cincinnati. It
is in the heart of this nation. Since '8Sour
city bas not Wen going backwards; on the
other hand it has leen making great pro
gress. We have hotel capacity for more
than 8,0(10 people, and we have room for
18,000 more. We are prepared, as we have
been heretofore.to treat the Democratic con
vention liberally, and we are prepared to
give yon a guarantee in such form as you
may desire." He concluded by claiming
Ohio as a Democratic state.
Maybury Speaks for Detroit.
Judge Follet also spoke for Cincinnati
and then Mr. Maybury put. in Detroit's
plea. "Come to Michigan," be said, "and
seek sources of inspiration and see the
commerce that passes liencat h your flag,
worthy of the name. Come and see the
wealth ot the soil, the mine, the factory
and men that do not ask subsidy. Come
to the city which is love and honor. Come
to the memories which ore long and loving
as the twilight that lingers after the sun
sets." Judge Chipman also spoke. He,
would say nothing of the home of Hill,
Cleveland or Croker. nor would he go
further west to the home of the "Old
Roman." Allan Thurman. ''When he is
dead, he snid, "we will place him by the
side of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew
Jackson. We want the convention put
where it will do the most good."
Indiana's Capitol Advocated.
Senator Tnrpie, of Indiana, spoke briefly
in favor of Indianapolis. He said that it
had 100,000 inhabitants. And was well
known as a convention city. More,ia
tional .conventions had been held there
than in any other city in the union. Her
hotel accommodations were ample and it
had handled large assemblies with credit.
In concluding he said: "Wherever yon go,
we will follow you. We do not ask parti
ality, but we ask an opportunity to treat
the members of the convention as they
never were treated before."
Chas, L Jewett said he was commis
sioned by the city ot Indianapolis and by
the Democrats of Indiana to ask the com
mittee for its consideration of the city of
Indianapolis for party and political rea
sons. It was no new sensation, he said, for
Indiana Democrats to have a man on the
national ticket. It would be a new Hernia
tion to have the convention within its
borders. It would encourage them.
Psck Whoops It Cp for Milwaukee.
"Kansas City was advanced by C. F. Put
nam and Senator Vest, bot h speaking prin
cipally as to the ability of that town to ac
commodate the convention. . Governor
Peck then took tne Door to taut tor Mil
waukee. "W e come here," he said, "to go
into the race of thoroughbreds. I come
from a state for years condemned to be Re
publican. But Wisconsin is Democratic
by 30.000 majority today. I want vou to
have this convention to go to Milwaukee.
The Democrat s of our state have $30,000 on
interest, which was held by the Republic
ans and is now turned into the. treasury.
We have won a suit froito
Republicans for halt a million of
dollars. I claim that our citizens walk
the streets at night from choice, and we
will irive you their beds. Laughter. If
the jeople will come to Milwaukee they
will never hold a convention any wher
else, and when you adjourn you will ad
iourn to meet in Milwaukee four years
hence. Laughter. Every man who goes
there must bring his wife; our ladies will
take charge of them and give the husbands
a chance laughter, and when your la
bor is over you can call for them, and if
you don't get your own wife you can get
some other man's. Laughter.
Xcw York, Frisco and St. Panl.
Comptroller Myers and Colonel Fellows
spoke for New York and M. F. Tarby for
San Francisco. Ex-Representative Wil
son, said that Minnesota in 184 gave
Blaine 42,000 majority, while in 1RX) the
Republican governor only had 2,000 ma
jority. This showed the growth of Demo
cracy and if the convention met at St.
Paul it was certain that Minnesota would
le found in the Democratic ranks. At
this point the speeches being finished, on
motion of Senator Gorman the meetincr
took a recess until 9 o'clock.
CHICAGO SAYS NOT A WORD,
But She Carries Off the Conventiou Just
Not a word had been said for Chicago in
ail the talk, and on reassembling. when the
balloting was begun, it did not look likt
she was in the race. The story of the bal

4ireat Interest in the Voting.
When the balloting began the interest
became intense. The hotel corridors were
crowded with the delegates froui the var
ious cities, and as their city showed gains
the corridors resounded with cheers. It
soon becime apparent, however, that the
committee was coquetting with several
cities. When on the first ballot, Kansas
City led, it adherents gave a wild western
cheer. t)ii the third ballot, when San Fran
cisco received fifteen votes, the number ot
people who wanted to visit the Golden
Gate would doubtless even have appalled
the generous Californinns.
Hopes Dashed to F.arth.
St. Paul's hopes were raisid by leading
in the fourth ballot by 13 votes, only to be
dashed on the' subsequent ballots. Per
haps the worst collapse was that of De
troit, which on the sixth ballot received 19,
while on the next it dropped to 1. Indi
anapolis hopes were raised on the eighth
ballot only to disappear from the contest
on the next ballot, when she received 1
vote. The men from Milwaukee were per
haps the noisiest and rent the air when the
Badger state capital received 30 votes on
the nint h ballot. The crowd was in great
good humor and their enthusiasm rose
and fell as their favorites fared on each
Knocked the Crowd Silly,
en on the fifteenth ballot it was" an
nounced that Chicago had twenty-sewn
votes and the convention, the crowd in the
corridors were fairly struck dumb. That a
city which had not even asked for the con
vention should le selected was inexplic
able. The Milwaukee, St. Paul and
Detroit delegations went on the sidewalk
and cheered for Cleveland. Resolutions
thanking Hon. William Dickson, the resi
dent mcmlier of the committee and the
local recept iou committee for their excel
lent care and attention to the national
committee were adopted, and at U:4. the
Bland's New Silver Bill.
Washington, Jan. 22. Representative
Bland, of Missouri, chairman of the com
mittee on coinage, weight and measures,
introduced in the house yesterday a bill
for the free coinage of gold and silver, and
for the issue of coin notes for silver deposited
atita coin value. The bill is a substitute
for the one he introduced sometime ago,
and the committee will probably report it
to the house. It makes "dad's" dollar and
the gold dollar equally the standard of
