EVERYBODY WAS FOR EOIES.
The Governor ii-cn the V.eatlcmlili Vnaui-
uiounIj- I'lutform I'oints.
A motion was adopted that the conven
tion proceed to the selection of a candidate
( ir governor aud State Senator V. W.
Dodge, of Burlington, was recognized for
the purpose of presenting the name of
Horace Uoies. Senator Podge referred to
the one man who is recognized as pre
eminently the leader of the Iowa Democ
racy and the convention went wild with
applause before tho name had been men
tioned. In u dramatic manner the young
Beuator called upon nil who wanted Horace
Boies for their candidate this year to arise.
The delegates arose and cheered. After
ward a formal motion was made by Col.
E.Toeck, of Pes Moines, that Governor
Boies be renominated by acclaumtiou.
The motion was unanimously carried by a
riling vote, and again the enthusiasm of
the convention was unfettered.
The platform was then presented and
adopted without friction. It indorses the
administration of Hoits and also that pf
Cleveland; charges the present stringency
to the Mc Kinley tariff law and Sherman
act, together with legislation for the rich
and the trusts, etc.; tariff for protection is
denounced and the Chicago plank on that
issue indorsed, aud congress is urged to
be quick about tariff reform; the silver
plank is a repetition of that adopted at
Chicago, and it is held that the policy
therein laid down is especially necessary
for the farmer and laborer; just pensions
to des rving vets are favored, with elim
ination o! all fraudulent or illegal cases
"but the pension of the worthy soldier
should not lie disturbed."
A new departure is taken on the liquor
question, and tho platform says that as a
"partial reparation for the unjust confisca
tion of private property cuusoxl by the pro
hibitory law we favor such legislation as
will permit the manufacture of spirituous
and vinous liquors within the 6tate, there
by giving to our own people at least equal
rights in this respect with the manufac
turers of other states." Monopolies and
trusts are denounced and the regulation
by law of telephone, telegraph, insurance
"and all other like" charges is ad
vocated. In addition to the above legislation is fa
vored which "will secure to the coal min
ers of this state full compensation Tortheir
labor," and bi-weekly payment of their
earnings; the establishment by law of a
free public employmeut office in connec
tion with the bureau of labor statistics.
Finally it is proposed that partisanship be
eliminated from the control of the state
institutions uud placed in the dauds of one
non partisan board of control.
The ticket was completed as follows:
For lieutenant governo'r, l. s. tJestow ou
first ballot; supreme judge, John Cliggitt,
of Mason City; state superintendent, - -Knoepfli
r, the present Incumbent; railway
commissioner, Thomas Bowman, of Coun
cil Bluffs, governor Boies had been sent
for, and as the ticket was announced com
plete he appeared on the platform. He
was vociferously cheered, the entire con
vent ion rising. He made a brief speech
of thanks, but declared that his desire to
retire from public life was honest. As be
was but one member of the party, how
ever, and the others were against his re
tirement he would do his best to make the
ticket Micce.tt.ful. Adjourned sine die.
The I iiriui is at Mount Gretna.
Moi nt Ckktna, l'a., Aug. 24. The
gathering of the Farmers' Alliance here is
a very large one. and if the political senti
ments they are hearing .lie their own the
meeting bet ikens trouble for the old par
ties. The speakers are General Weaver;
P. I'. Duncan, of Columbia, S. C; C. A.
Power, of Terre Haute, and others of like
views. All the speakers are for free sil
ver, denunciation of the money power, de
mands for more money at least f50 per
capita, "money that will stay at home;"
a tiiiaiicial system independent of other
nations ami other ideas of a similar char
acter, and they are nil heartily applauded.
The meeting is much, as to the principles
advocated, likethc greenback meetings be
tween lSTo and lsso.

WHERE "JOE" CANNON STANDS.
The Illinois Statesmen Icfcndl tho Sher
Washington, Aug. ii. "Joe" Cannon,
of Illinois, surprised the house when he
spoke on the silver question. He spoke
against the repeal cf the Sherman law.
The country was in a bad condition, but
he did not think that the case had been
properly diagnosed. Under the Sherman
act and under the Eland act there had
gone into currency S300,ono,jO3 as good as
gold, redeemable in gold and circulating
side by side with gold. He wanted
both metal-ami he wanted both to be
hi -pt on a pr.rit y. lie would let the pur
chasinc clau-e of t he Sherman law stand
until the Democrat:? side f tho house
would meet t he Republican side aud would
enact a :::ea-i.re that would utilize all the
-!ver t'r.t treasury at its commercial
li s bi '..nent was against the Wilson
bill, anil he .-. ould vote against it. Silver

IV what feast, were the Repub
licans invited' To a feast where it was
proposed to trike down an net which had

pi. i.icau h.'.d received full notice that
tlii- wottid i-e followed fast and furious
ly by the striking down of the last vestige
of protection and the passing in lieu there
ol a law that would yield revenue only,
ha: no protection to any American citi
zen. This was the feast to which Repub
licans were invited by their Democratic
f r.cuds. For one he would go hungry first.

LIVE STOCK AND PRODUCE MARKETS
:. Mantle Not Seated.
Washington, Aug. 24. The principal
event at the senate's session was the rejec
tion of I.ee Mantle as a senator from Wy
oming. Tho vote was non-partisan, and
stood X tot;). Peffer's resolution for an
inquiry whe' her the banks of the east are
cashing depositors' checks or refusing to
do so was si ut to the calendar, where it is
likely to sta. .
In the house the whole session was oc
cupied with the debate on silver, but tho
only two speeches that roused any inter
est were t hose of Cummings of New York
and Cnnuoi of Illinois. The house held
au-eveuing session. The feature of C. i
nou's speech was a defense of the Sher
man act and opposition to its repeal.
Majority Against 1'ree Silver.
Washington, Aug. 24. The figures pre
sented by the executive committee of anti
silver Democrats of the poll they have
taken of house members show that If the
friends of free coinage could concentrate
their whole strength upon any one of the
ratios the nia'ority against it would be 88.
Eut this is conceded to be impracticable,
the silver men being divided as to ratio.
When it comes to the naked question of
repeal or ro repeal, as presented in the
Wilson bill, it is stated that the majority
in favor of its passage will be at least 75.
Minnesota's Money Tied Vp.
Sr. Pacl, Aug. 24. The financial
stringency has reached the state treasury
of Minnesota. With more money on de
posit in the banks of the state than at any
previous date in its history, the state is
unable to pay promptly salaries due to
supreme court judges and other officers of
th. commonwealth. Tho trouble arises
from the fat t that something like $5U0,
(Kuisticdup in the eleven banks which
have suspended in St. Paul and Minneapolis.
