ALBAST, April 29. The Republican
tat convention wis held here yesterday.
William A. Sutherland, of Rochester, was
elected temporary chairman. Upon taking
the chair Sutherland delivered a speech
of one hour's duration. His allusions to
Lincoln, Graut, Harrison, Blaine, Fassett
and Depew were loudly applauded; the
. rnthusiasm at Blaine's name being par
ticularly noticeable. Previous to this the
only notable incident was the announce
ment that ex Senator Warner Miller had
been nuable to attend the convention for
business reu-ons. A letter from Miller
was read gi ing his reasons for absenting
himself. The reading of the letter was
applauded. The preliminary business jra
then transacted and recc&s taken.
Whitelasr Beid Permanent Chairman.
It was 3:45 when Chairman Sutherland
agam called the convention to order. The
committee on credential reported that
but one contest was presented, and it had
decided to report in favor of the sitting
delegates. The report was adopted. Hon,
Whitelaw Reid was then chosen as per
manent chairman, and . anild sreat ap

was a two billion dollar congress. By its
enactments we have increased the foreign
and domestic trade of the United States to
a total of two billions in one year, a point
never reached before since the foundation
of the American government. (Tremen
' A Enlogjr of Harrison.
After a few words in favor of harmony
the governor closed and the report of the
resolutions committee was read. The refer
ence to Harrison is as follows: "We de
clare our unbounded confidence in Presi
dent Ben jail in Harrison, und without
qualification indorse and commend his
administration of the great oftice which he
holds. He has given the country a wise.
Just and patriotic administration. He has
maintained the national diguity and honor
at home and abroad. He has upheld the
glory of the flag while promoting peace
and securing prosperity. He has faith
fully redeemed the p'.edire given before his
election and jealously guarded the inter
ests of the whole people. While carefully
and intelligently observing the platform
and teachings of his party, he has yet been
statesman, wise, broad and eminently
American and patriotic."
Strong on the McKinley Law.
Governor McKinley in then indorsed and
the longest paragraph in the platform is
tfven to the McKinley tariff bill which is
unqualifiedly approved. Free coinage is
pposed except under conditions that will
make every dollar coined the equal iu
value intrinsically, as well as otherwise,

state ticket, and it was done as follows:

The President's Remarks.
When the applause hat! subsided Chair
eaau Reid addressed the convention. "If
the record of the Republican party through
the whole thirty-six years of its glorious
history is not a sufficient reason for trust
in it now," said Rrid, "it is at least no con
