Louisville, May 11. la opening the
aational Republican Leagufl convention
President Clarkson said: "As we begin
here totlay the march to victory in 1S0C we
have neither complaints nor explanations
for the defeat last year. Indeed, the Re
publican party feels better today over the
situation than the country itself. The Dem
jcratic party that saw in the Republican
policies only robbery of the American peo
ple have sew been in power two months
and the robbery still coes on by Democrat
ic consent under IVnniraMc ausphv.
Cleveland and hr I ratio secretary of
the treasury have u!.-niven the coun
try a plain fore;a-r- oi Democratic ideas
of finance and busiue.-s. They have al
ready friffhteneil the bu-iness world; made
a suspension of discount in all the banks
of the Country and created uneasiness
where prosperity ruled before.
The "Intolerance of Morality."
"A majority of the voters of the United
States are Kspublicans on the real Repub
lican issues. Too many voters have been
alienated by what might be called the in
tolerance of morality. Ijt-t us make the
platform so broad that any man, native or
foreign born, of any church, ma3- find a
R-elcome place in our ranks. Thus we shall
ain new votes and elements. We go into
this conflict to maintain our old principles
with undiminished faith, favoring the
rights of men, protection to American
tvorkinginen and American interests. The
Republican League conies to Kentucky to
ieny the charge that there is a revival of
sectionalism, and the '-bloody shirt," and
to prove that it is false. c come to s:.y
that the negro question has merged in the
larger one of equal rights of all parties.
The Colored Man in Polities.
"We come to prove that the Democratic
riarty has so far surrendered to the Kepub
.ican position on the equal rights of all
parties as to admit that the negro has the
right to vote or hold fllce if he will act
with the Democratic party. When the
Democratic party thus accepts the negro
is a voter it can no longer challenge the
right of the Republican party to do the
same. Public opinion as to the negro is
rapidly dividing. The Democratic party
has ceased the crv that he is An animal and
f oot a man. The cry of ignorance no lon
ger holds against the negro race alone. The
aegro of slavery days is Republican.
Position of the "w Necro."
"The new negro " like the young white
tnan, will make his own terms with the
?xisting poetical parties. The south has
already injured itself on this line more
tfian it can recover in generations. In teach
ing its young people dishonesty in politics
it has been logically teaching them dis
honesty in all things. Of the millions nf
migrants who come to America all seem
x know that political liberty in some
states of the south is for Democrats only.
Dn the laboring men of the northern
cities begins to fall the greater injury of
the injustice toward the southern negro.
This comes in the menace of the degraded
and cheap labor into which the Democratic
party has forced the black mau.

"As to money and banking the country
will depend on the Republican minority
In congress for defense from threatened,
harm, liimctallism will of course be main
tained by the Republicans, and the sagac
ity of the Republican minority in con
gress will doubtless provide, with the aid
jf conservative Democrats, some provision
n substitution for the Sherman act which
tvill preserve a continued parity in value
of coined gold and silver. Xeither the ex
treme eastern view that would force this
country to a gold basis, nor the view that
would make money cheaprr and all other
property dearer, will solve the problem
Dr save the country."
Clarkon then stated as the financial pol
icy that laid down in the Minneapolis plat
Form, and he suggested some means of ex
tending the banking system to small towns,
so as to give the farmer the benefit of his
credit at as low a rate of interest as tha
be sin ess man. The foregoing, however, he
laid was given as his personal view, v hich
neither the Republican party nor any fac
tion thereof was responsible for.
Continuing he said: "The League clubs
:onld find no more interesting or profitable
question to discuss or investigate than the
jo-operative system. Factories of all kinds,
dairies, farms, railways, and banks are
testing it, and find increased profits to
themselves as well as larger rewards to
their employes. Arbitration and concilia
lion should be encouraged. Another theme
for discussion is the growing question of
Setter roads in America; and still another,
the political rights of women."
"Let ns make a door so open and so wide
that every voter may come in. Let us
strike down and repudiate any aristocracy
ar prejudice of action such as was shown
in the course of a social-political club in
Sew York a few weeks ago, in refusing ad
mission to a splendid young American be
;ause of race, of religious prejudice. I hope
to see this convention, while standing
bravely for the spirit of Americanism in
all its noble actions and ambitions, dis
own that act and denounce it as being un
worthy of this country and of the Repub
lican party. Make the gate of the Republi
can wide enough for Republican victory."
THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE.
Caucus Programme Carried Oat Manley
When the epeaker concluded he was re
warded with enthusiastic cheers, as he had
been when he arose, and as soon as he
Could be heard he announced that the con
rention was ready for business. The call
of the roll showed that thirty-three states
were represented. The usual pofamittees
were appointed and. the convention ad-
ourned lor the aay. At night tnere was a
concert at Phoenix hall. Between 10 and
12 a reception was given the Rhode Island
delegation in the symposium in the south
west corner of the hall.
The afternoon was largely devoted by the
delegates to discussion of the probable
action of the rational committee. There
were two or three questions of importance
before that body, one being the confirma
tion of a chairman and the other the ques
tion oi representation in tne next nationa i
convention. At the meeting of the com
mittee De Young, who is credited with a
desire to hold the chairmanship, had the
pleasure of presiding until the resolution
decided upon at the previous caucus, con
firming Carter in the chair and accepting
the resignation of Campbell, had been
ncted upon. It was adopted, and the na
tional committee continued as at present
The committee then put a temporary
quietus on the proposition to change the
basis of representation in the next nation
al convention; that proposition was that
each state have four delegates-at-large and
one for each 7,000 votes cast for the Repub
lican presidential candidate. Scott of West
Virginia was the mover of the resolution
changing the basis, which would largely
decrease the representation from the south.
Payne of Wisconsin offered an amendment
which did not alter the sense of the reso
lution and Scott accepted it and a long de
bate ensued, Powell Clayton, of Arkansas,
and Bradley of Kentucky strongly oppos
ing the resolution.
The southern members insisted that the
proposal was a gross outrage upon the
rights of the south and upon those of the
party who were fighting its battles in that
region and meant the supremacy of the
Republicans of the east, north and west
at the expense cf their southern brethren.
A motion was made to table the resolution,
tut finally it was decided to indeliinitely
postpone final action in order that the
sentiments of representative. Republicans
throughout the country might be as
certained. Joseph II. Manley, of Maine, was selected
as permanent secretary. Mrs. J. Kllen
Foster, of Iowa, was permitted to occupy
some fifty minutes in telling of the' work
tif the Woman's Republican club in the
last campaign. Four years from now, she
Faid, it would be a permanent factor in the
politics of the nation, reaching the votes
through homes and firesides. When she
concluded it was within an hour of Derby
time, and the committee adjourned subject
to the call of the chair.
The special committee on the place and
date for the next meeting of the league has
selected Denver. The convention will be
called for the second Tuesday in May,

contestants for the honor.

In Kansas, Colorado and Nebraska
where planting was backward and germin
ation slow, owing to continued drought,
and much of that planted for winter-killed,
large areas have been plowed under and de
voted to other crops. The same has been
done in Missouri, Indiana and Illinois,
where the plant was badly winter-killed
and wreatly damaged since by the contin
ued wet weather. Damage by the Hessian
fly in some of the counties of Indiana and
Ohio is reported.
Winter rve, like wheat, has suffered a
decline in condition since last month, its

Nineteenth in the Line of Winners on an
Ideal Kacing Iity.
Louisville, May 11. The Louisville
Derby Day opened the race as usual at
Churchill Downs and the day was an
ideal day for racing. There was a
tremendous crowd present, the usual large
throng being made greater by the crowds
here attending the Republican League
convention. The nineteenth Derby prize
was contested for by Lookout, Boundless,
Buck McCann, Plutus, Linger aud Mi
rage. The start was made on equal terms, and
Lookout was in the lead in a dozen strides.
As they passed the stand he led two lengths,
Plutus being second, and Linger third.
The rest were bunched, and Lookout was
under a hard pull. It was really no race
for Lookout. Before the mile was com
pleted he was five lengths in the lead and
without a blow, under a strong pull while
the others were being urged to the utmost
he went under the wire two lengths In
front; Plutus, second; Boundless, third.
