TILLMAN 10 SILVER
The South Carolina Senator
Helping in Colorado.
BENNETT FOR CONGRESS,
Sound Money Republicans Forcing
Denver, Colo. April 14. Senator
Tillman who has come here to ad
dress tho Democratic state conven
tion tomorrow, says the outlook is
altogether favorablo for the Demo
cratic national convention to be con
trolled by tho frco silver wing.
A speolal to tho News from Hast
ings, Nebraska., says:
A News representative met Senator
Tillman at Tecumseh. Asked as to
the political outlook, Senator Tillman
"I havo discovered a much stronger
spinal column among silver Demo
crats. In fact, heretofore, It has been
a sort of jelly affair. Tho pressure at
homo among the constituents of con
gressmen and senators and tho neces
sity for progressive action has pro
duced a great change. Men who
would not speak in December are
growing more chummy all tho time.
The outlook Is altogether favorablo
for tho Democratic convention to bo
controlled by tho f reo silver wing.
"I don't suppose It Is any secret that
I am not going to stand any Demo
cratic goldbug platform. I won't have
it. As to the outlook, Senators Jones,
Harris and others have details. Wo
expect to have ono-lmlf of Michigan,
Indiano, Ohio and Illinois and the
south, except Kentucky, and Ken
tucky would bo all right if some ono
would go there and stir them up."
"I nm a Democrat," said Seuator
Tillman, "but if I may bo. permitted
to offer a word of advice to free silver
Republicans in Colorado, Bend Senator
Teller to the St. Louis convention as
chairman of tho delegation with In
structions, which ho will gladly obey,
to lead his delegation from tho con
vention hall the moment JIcKlnloy.or
any other goldbug, Is nominated for
president; or any other platform than
one demanding free silver, without

Bennttt Will Run.
Portland, April 14. Judge A. S.
Bennett, of the Dalles, who was nom
inated for congress by the Democrats
of the second district, and who tele
graphed Friday night last declining
the nomination, was persuaded to re
consider his determination and an
nounce that be will make tho race.
Democrats favoring the gold stand

ard held another meeting today and
practically decided that it would be
poor policy to place an Independent
Democratic candidate In the field on
a gold platform. They aro now "wait
ing for the Republicans to act in this
matter. It is known that the Repub
licans arc considering the advisability
of putting In nomination a sound
money candidate against Ellis.
WASHINGTON FOK SILVER.
Portland, April 14. C. H.Wnrnor,
a prominent Democrat or Colfax,
Wash., passed through this city en
route to the Democratic state con
vention which mot In Tacoma today.
Mr. Warner said: "Tho Tacoma con
vention will undoubtedly instruct the
eight delegates to tho national con
vention to vote ror tree coinago or
silvorand I bcllovo the Republican
state convention will do tho same
thing. Tho sentiment for frco silver
in Washington is without doubt much
stronger than In Oregon; at tho same
time, there Is a considerable sprink
ling of gold standard men In both
parties. I should judge there are in
Whitman county about eighty Demo
crats who favor tho gold standard.
I do not advocato committing the
Democratic party to frco coinage just
as a matter of policy. I believe in It
on principle. I prefer an open decla
ration to a straddle. I am a frco sil
ver man, but I prefer that, tho coun
try would decide for a gold stanadard
if it will decide at once rather than
let the matter run on for another four
years In Its present uncertain shape.
"Tho political outlook In Washing
ton Is very uncertain. Tho present
tendency In Eastern Washington ap
pears to bo toward Populism and that
party, If there Is no change between
now and election, Is altogether likely
to carry most of the counties of East

Banker Bush Soya Both Portland
ventlons Were Popullstlc.
A dispatch to the Oregonlan from
Salem, April 13, says: A. Bush does
not Indorse tho platform of cither tho
Democratic or Republican party of
Oregon as enunciated py tho state
conventions last week. 'Mr, Bush Is
widely known as a successful business
man, with largo Interests In tho
Northwest. Concerning' tho plat
forms of the two parties nnd tho prob
able actions of tho national Conven
tions, Mr. Bush said: 1
"Tho conventions at Portland wore
largely Populist meetings. Tho Re
publican platform Is, , In fact, no
better than the Democratic wono
i in being less frank, and therefore
more harmful. We shall sec what Is
done at Chicago. If free) silver coin
age dominates that conVentlon, the
result will protty cortalnly be a
rupture and a gold standard ticket In
all states cast or Ohio, Including
Maryland, West Virginia, and Dela
ware. Hero they arc practically no
sliver Democrats hardly enough to
compose electoral tlckVts. Like
wise a majority of tho jDomocrats of
Wisconsin, Illinois, Nebraska, Iowa
and probably Ohio and Indiana nre
opposed to frco silver colriagc.
a This may bo tho only sound-money
ticket In tho Hold. Tho present Indi
cations aro that tho St. Louis conven
tion will present on uncertain candi
date and an uncertain platform."
Mr. Bush Is a Democrat, and main
tains that the Chicago convention
will have more ultra frcc-colnugo
members than tho St. Louis conven
tion, and that, while thcro Is a prob
ability that tho former, will not de
clare for frco sllyor, tho latter will
probably straddlo tho qucjstlon. Both,
ho thinks, arc llablo to'pass a blind
It Is claimed by Mr. Bush that tho
Democratic .state convention was not
fnlrly representative. Though tho
party may be pretty equally divided
on the question, tho business Interests
arc held to bo misrepresented In frcc
sllvcr declarations. Delegates elected
from tho party to a convention upon
the money issue,' tho people having
full knowledge that a llnanclnl reso
lution was to bo passed upon, would
not, In Mr. Bush's opinion, declare
for rrco silver.
