Albany, Feb. Zi. Before the meeting
of the state Democratic convention ber
yesterday the state central committee met,
its most important business being the dis
position of the protest of the objecting
Cioth.imites. A committee of the objectors
appeared 1 fore the committee and urged
careful consideration of tbeir protest.
Uourke (oekran asked E. Kllery Ander
son if it was not true that the protest wa
prepared before the convention was called
or the !.te set. Anderson said the com
mittee nu t on the Saturday night prior to
the meeting of t lie state committee, and
that there was a rumor at that time that
the convention was to lie held, early.
Disposition of the Protest.
Thomas K Grady said that he bel ieveil
that the committee had decided to protest
against the convention either as too early
or too late, and also believed that the com
mittee was simply opposed to candidates
and not alone to the date of the conven
tion, and that the movement was simply
antagonistic and nothing else. Cockran
moved that the question referred to by the
committee, together with the papers, be
laid on the table. The mot ion was unau
imously adopted, and the prote-ting dele
The Mate ton vent ion Meets.
The Democratic state convention was
called to order short lv after norn, George,
M. lSet-be being temporary chairman. Ho
referred to Hill in terms of flowing praise
and was loudly applauded. After the ap
pointment of committees, introduction of
resolutions, etc., a recess to 4 p. m. was
taken, and w hen the convention reassem
bled tfciicral Sickles was made permanent
chairman. He al.-o eulogized Mill and
raised the enthusiasm of the Convention
still higher. The committee on resolution
reporteil the platform, whieh, opens with
a hearty indorsement of Governor Hi!l,
and ri-jieus the pledges in favor of tariff
Tariff and Fiiiunc-es.
It then recites the planks of the Demo
cratic platforms for 1S70 down, among
which ars "gold and silver the only legal
tender; federal taxation for revenue only,
and economy in public expenses. Ye are
against the coinage of any silver dollar
which is not of the intrinsic value of ev
ery other dollar of the United States. YVe
therefore denounce the new Jjherman sil
ver law, under wlilch one-tenth of our gold
stock has been exported and all our silver
output is dammed up at home, as a false
pretence, but actual hindrance, of return
to free bi-metallic coinage and as tending
only to produce a change from oue kind of
monometalism to anot her.
Hill Nominated fur Freniilrnt.
"We therefore unite with the friends of
honest money everywhere in stigmatizing
the Shermau progressive silver basis law
as no solution of the gold and silver ques
tion, And as a fit appendix to the subsidy
and bounty sw indle, the McKinley worse-
than-war tariff, the Blaine reciprocity
Humbug; the squandered surplus, the ad
vancing deficit, the defective census and
falsified representation, and the revolt
tionary procedures of the billion dollar
congress." "The inflexibly sound finance
of Governor Tilden" is coupled with the
similar views of Governor Mill, and the
close of the platform is as follows: "In
obedience to the mandate of the Demo
cratic voters of New York the delegates
selected by this convention are instructed
to present to the national Democratic con
vention the name of David B. Mill as their
candidate for president of the United
btats," and the delegates are also instruct
ed to vote as a unit.
Senator Hill Makes a Speech.
Tl pl.iriorm was adopted and Senator
Hill tailed for and when he appeared the
convention went wild. Me was introduced
as the next president of the United
States." He expressed his gratitude for
the indorsement the convention had given
turn and then opened ou the Republican
party with a vigorous arraignment. He
characterized it as a party of plutocrats,
autocrats, public plunderers aud a party
that neither trusts the people nor obeys
them. He predicted an overwhelming de
feat for that party at the next ejection,
and denounced nnsparingly the 'billion
congress," all of whose acts he said must
be repealed. He said that the task of de
feating the Republicans was a hard one.
Tha Democrats had no money while their
opponents were supported 'by those they

A Letter from ltlaine.
The following letter from Secretary
Blaine was read:
I regret that I cannot lie present at your club
nicotine on the 22d. Official engagements for

of (rood cheer ou the prnsiierts of the Repub
lican party. On all leading measures relating
to tlie industrial and tiunucial interests of the
people we are strong and growing stronger. On
the contrary our opponents are weak nd
growing weaker. They are divided: we are
united. If we do not w in it is onr own fault.
We will lie justly censurable if. with sneh great
measures involved, every Republican does not
feel that he is appealed to personally, and that
victory in the election dejieuds on him.
GOV. M'KINLEY'S SPEECH.
The llurkeye Statesman Talks on. Hit
The speech of the evening was that of
Governor McKinley to the toast: "Protec
tion the National Policy." He said:
There is not a Democrat or a Republican who
would blot out a page of the history of the lie
publican party if he could. YVhcn the people
In IKS wauted the tariff revised theycalUd the
Republican party to power to do it, and It was
done to stay. The Democrats will not be able
to change a pace of the tariff bill in ten years,
and in that time the Republicans will be pre
pared to make a revision. Jt will not be
changed in twenty-five years on the pbtn
marked out by t he present congress. Democrats
want to revise it item by item. Morrison tried
that in IN, and his face has not been seen in
the house xinee. Mills tried it and lost the
tlK-akersbip. Gmver Cleveland in 1888 went
shearing t hat sheep and he came back shorn.
Says Protection Always Wins.
There has never lieen a square contest be
tween protection and free trade where protec
tion has not won. The Democrats want wool
ou the free list because it will Injure Bepub
liean Michigan, but they want to give protec
tion to the Democratic planters of Louisiana.
This plan cannot prevail, for as Burke said of
lilierty. it must be for all or It must be for
none. There is not a man. woman or child
iu Michigan who has felt the burden of the
protective tariff, and not one who has not ex
lierienced the blessings of it. The tariff re
formers say that they want free trade so they
can compete with the markets of the world.
The people of this country do not propose to
comiiete with the world until they can do an
on equal conditions.
Conditions of Competition.
When the European countries bring their
social condition and the condition of their la
boring classes up to ours we will meet them in
the markets of the world, and it will be the
survival of the lit test. Let it go forth from
kere tonight to be rung in the campaign now
opening, that we will not bring the condition
of our laboring classes down to the level of the
European laborers. The Republicans lost the
ramign of IstsJ because the people believed
the prophets; i he prophets, t'uouph, are now
out of a job. Tbeir talk about the evils that
would follow on account of the McKinlsy bill
has been proven to lie merely campaign talk.
In the fifteen months which have elapsed
since the McKinley hill became a law the
foreipu commeree of the United States has
been greater than during any previous fifteen
inouttis in the history of lue country.
