Cincinnati, July 1. Rain is a necessary
tonco:iiitant of national conventions this
year and the Prohibitionists certainly
should not be neglected, and thty were
not. It rained "cats and dogs" yesterday.
CENTRAL JOHN BID WELT
The first business done was t he adoption
of a resolu.ion requesting delegates who
make addresses to refrain from remarks
regarding the south before the war or its
position during the straggle all in the
interests of harmony. Miss Willard ad
dressed the convention, denying that she
was a fusion ist, and pledged the W. C. T.
TJ. to stand by prohibition. A collection
was taken up fot "sinews" and $20,000 was
subscribed. As the resolutions commtt-
tee was not ready the convention took re- '
cess to 2 p. m. . I
Debated the Platform.
The convention reassembled promptly
in the afternoon and the resolutions com

making unkind remarks of the south '
(which, by the way, was incited by soino
caustic strict tires on that section in Mrs.

adopted amid a hurricane of cheers, and
after the whole couvention hud joined in .

that Miss Frances Willard was Introduced
to the convention as the "(jncKn of the
Prohibition Party." The delecaK's rose
and greeted her with a Chautauqua aarate.
Miss Willard's first words were a den. il
that she was a fusionist. She acknowl

added: "And yet some of you thought I

Miss Willard stud she favore 1 a torpedo
fuse which would lift, the two old parties
out of existence, but she did not favor
fusion of the Prohibition party with any
other party, and not one word of hers had
ever been for fusion, though she was will

farmers aud the workingmen. She ex
plained in this light what she had done at

What St. John Said ol itidwell.
When St. John took the stand to nomi
nate Bidwell he reviewed his career from
the time that he crossed the rockiea in
1841, told how he had calloused his
hands with picks as a miner, eulogized his
life and works and defended him from the
attacks that had been made upon his
career in congress. Wardwell of Xew
York, it i; was true that Bidwell was a
sickly man, to which St. John replied that
according to the testimony of his wife he
was well and hearty.

Mrs. Gongar Asks a Question.
While the plaform was uuderconsidera-
I tion a colored delegate proposed a resolu
tion deBOtincingihe old parties for bribery,
fraud, and intimidation, but it didn't even
get a heiriog. Then a delegate moved
the adoption of the last plank in the plat- '
form (proposed by the minority) as it reads ;
in these dispatches. Mrs. Gougar de-.
nounced the plank as a one-idea plank,
and said it would make the party a one-,
i iea party. She a'ked W. D. Ward well, '
who was a friend of the plank, if he had j
not said, as treasurer of the Standard Oil
lonipany, that he would desert the party
tf the plank was not adopted.

reply, which was: "I presume the woman
has asked that question is good faith, and

want to say to this convention before my

have never said anything of the kind;and
second, that I am loyal to one idea that
my heart is in the cause of Prohibition." I

The entire afternoon session of five
hours was devoted to a heated and at
times uproarious debate upon the plat
form and the minority report. The prin

ol those in the Hepublican and Demo

There;-.!, of the minority on the tariff I
and financial planks was as follows: "The
issuing of a national currency belongs to
congress alone, as the represent ative of j
the sovereign power of the nation, ami
should not be delegated to private individ- :
