0111 DEMOCRATIC CONVENTON
ENDORSE$ SOUND MONEY.
A Strong Position Taken on the Mon
roe Doctrine. Campbell Negn
inated for Governor.
In spite of James E. Campbell's earnest
and repeated protest that his friends must
not nominate him as the Democratic candi
date for Governor of Ohio, as he could not
make the race for various reasons, the ex
Governor was put at the head of the ticket
by acelamation against his will on Wednes
day by the 800 delegates to the Ohio State
convention at Springfield. The nomination
was forced upon the Butler county man
whil' he was in the midst of a speech and in
the avt of presenting the name of Judge
PIe,"k. of Cineinnatti, for the same honor.
Then eane a graceful acceptance and the
rest of the ticket was made up on the acel4
mationi ojrder. Senator Brice won his point
of having only a reaflirmation of the na
tional currency plank inserted in the plat
form, on this "sound money" winning by
the sound majority of 255 when the free sil
ver amendmeut to the platform was put to
th econ vention.

As soon as nominations were declared ex
G- vernor Campbell was again on his chair.
Cries of "Campbell for Governor" drowned
his voice for a couple of minutes. Finally
scuring silenee he said that there was a
mi:.in before the Democratic party of the
State this fall: that of achieving a victory
which should electrify the whole country.
At this point the ex-Governor gave- ex-State
Cairman Norton, of Tiffin, permissIon to
iterrupt him, and Norton proceeded to
m've that Campbell be nominated for Gove
