entire South. Cries of "No, no,"
and confusion. Senator Vilas will in
turn speak for the minnrltv report.
Tillman Bays we have been hewers of
wood and carriers of water in bondage
to the states of New York, Connecti
cut nnd New Jersey. He says this Is
a sectional Issue. Hisses with few
cheers. He says facts cannot be
changed by hissing and Is presenting
nrguments to corroborate his state
ment. Asks ir New York and Penn
sylvania got Its great increase In
wealth In the last decade honestly.
Cries of "Yes," and "No." Says the
Increase of Its wealth is more than 2u
of the w.est. western and southern
states put together.
Says the south has no nngiy feelings
or resentment for wrongs It has en
dured. Time on Tillman caused Inter
ruption to his speech.
He says sectionalism is between the
people and money oligarchy of the
cast. Asks iwhero Is the New York
lender now? Cries of "In the sour,"
from the galleries. Cries from the
galleries o' "Hcrr Most," hisses and
laughter. Again he referred to the
lying newspapers. Loud cries of
"Illll, Hill," from the galleries.
Tillman said he would have his say
If ho ctands here until sundown. He
said Hill forced the present Issue and
left It to him to tell why. Tillman's
reference to Cleveland wna loudly
cheered. Ho said to endorse Cleve
land's administration would be to
write ourselves down as liars.
He referred to the bond syndicate.
Cheers and hisses. Cleveland had
no courage to override his oath and
Invade the state of Illinois with gov
ernment troops. Cleveland has been
the death of the Democratic party so
far as he could be. We must get Pop
ulists and Blmctalltsts to endorse the
platform and nominee or they nro
beaten and disgraced In November.
He said we have repudiated sin in
the platform but have failed to Join
the sinner. Laughter Ho denounced
Cleveland as un-Dcmocratic and
tyrannical. He denounced the Ibsuo

tion of authority and deserves Im
peachment. Hisses. Tillman lln

In addressing the convention favored
majority report, said this is notu
sectional convention. Cheers Ho
says this is a sectional question.

Chairman White dropped the gavel
t i ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ! J
. . ' '
. i '
at 10:52. The buzz or thousands
of voices gradually- subsided
and tho deleuates took their seats.
The New England delegations with
the exception of a few stragglers had
not. arrived. The New York delega
tion, however, headed by lllll and
Whitney, were In' their places. At
the minutes before 11 o'clock Rev.
0 1 een, of Cedar Rapids, lit., who made
the opening prayer yesterday, again
performed the same olllcc.
When the prayer was concluded,
Senator White handed the gavel to
Congressman Richardson, of Tennes
see, who announced that the commit
tee on resolutions were ready to report
and called to platform Senator Jones,
of Arkansas, to make tho committee's
report. The elTect of the reading
would have been hotter, had the
Southern senator controlled a stronger
voice. The silver ranks raised to
cheer when some of them heard the
words "we demand the free and un
limited coinage of both gold and sil
ver." One enthusiast demanded that the
passage be re-read, which was done.
Jones said ho was hoarse, Indeed, his
voice, two or three times nearly failed
him. As the delegates could not hear
much from the platform, most of Its
points fell unchecrcd, but the denun
ciation of tho government Interfer
ence by Injunction, which is taken as
an indirect approval of Governor
Altgeld's course, during tho Chicago
strike, met with recognition.
When tho plank, expressing sym
pathy with Cuba, had been read tho
Hag of the now Republic, with blue
nnd white and a single star on a red
field was carrtcd along the aisles, It
did not nrouso as much of a demon
stration as the partisans of Cuba had
hoped It would. Richardson rapped
on the desk and cried "put down that
Hag." So It dropped from sight. It
was evidently u tired convention.
It seemed Impossible to stir tho con
course with any enthusiasm. Tho
reading of the platform was con
cluded without any marked applause.
Then tho report of the minority was
read by J. H. Wade, or Ohio.
T1IK MINOMTY RIU'OIIT.
Chicaoo, July 0. Following Is a
minority report on tho platform for
the money plank:
"Wo declare our belief that the ex
periment on the part of tho United
States alone, of tho f rco coinage of
silver and change of tho existing
standard of value, independent of
action or other great nations, would
not only Imperil our chances, but It
would retard; or entirely prevent tho
establishment of International bi
metallism, to which tho efforts of the
.government should bo steadily di
rected. It would placo tho country
upon a silver basis and Impair con
tracts, disturb business, diminish tho
purchasing power of the wages of
labor and Inlllct irreparable evils up
on our nations commerce and
Industry. Until International co
operation among tho leading nations
for tho freo coinage of slver can be
secured, wo favor tho rigid mainte
nance of the existing gold standard,
as essential to tho preservation of our
credit. Tho redemption or our public
pledges and keeping Inviolate our
country's honor, wo Insist thut all
our paper and silver currency shall
be kept at a parity with gold.
The Democratic party Is the party
of hard money and opposed to legal
tender payment as part of our perma

cancellation of all United States and
treasury notes, under such legislative
provisions as will prevent undue con
traction. Wo hold that the national

following declaration n's In amend
ment to majority repert:
"We commend the IJonlsty and

istration. HILL TALKS.
When Hill 'ascended the platform
there was great cheering, j Hill says
If Tillman Is a Demoorntl nm a mug

is to unite and not divide.' Cheers.
He asks need ho defend New York
and her citizens. Cries of l"No, No."
He says New York Is tho Gibraltar of
Democracy. Ho savs It Is jiot a ques
tion of patriotism. It's a Question of
business and llnanco and economy.
The convention should only declare
In favor or International bimetallism.
CuiCAao, July O.Dollnlte results
arc today expected from Ithc Demo
cratic national convention certainly
on platform and probablyj on candi
dates unless a deadlock develop. It
Is to be a battle of great ohitory with
Initial appearance of such figures as
Senator Illll of New
of South Carolina; Joni'soj-Arkiinsas;
Vilas of Wisconsin and Gray of Del
aware. The outlook Is fora vote lato
n the day, probably about 0 o'clock,
then a recess untlll evening, when
noiimlnattng speeches, and probably
balloting will begin. No dcllnlto line
of action has been agreed upon by the
gold men, but the Individual members
of New York and other eastern dolc
catlons, freely express tho Intention
of either quitting tho convention hall
when the silver platform Is adopted,
or announcing their puposc not to
support tho candidates.
It has become practically certain
that no onrnnlzcd bolt will occur, as
the counsels of Sonator Illll and ex
Secretary Whitney hayc prevailed
toward a conservative action. A now
phase of the two-thirds question has
arisen In the possible course of the
gold clement to refrain jfrom voting.
In that event, parliamentarians dllTor
as to whether a nomination must bo
made by two-thirds of tho delegates
present or two-thirds of those voting.
It Is regarded by some leaders as a
Tho delivery of gold votes, 200 or
300 In number, to one of the silver
candidates on theory of choosing the
least of sovoral evils, might prove de
cisive, and give to the gold men an
advantage dictating tho nomination.
There Is as much uncertainty among
candidates on the eve of balloting as
beforo tho convention opened. It is
significant fact that no figures or es
timates strength aro given by tho
Tho gold people roso and cheered
but after their outbreaks of yesterday
theso efforts were faint. Tho endorse
ment of tho Democratic administra
tion which Hill had made Is losing.
The light for committee resolu
tions brought a yell Ironi the gal

Carolina, mounted the stage to open

Kinoston, Jamaica, July . An
olllclally recognized rumor has been
current In Kingston that a Spanish
warselp recently secretly landed a
forco at Dry harbor to kidnap a
Cuban, alleged to be the chief movor
In n llllbustcrlng expedition.
This place Is conveniently situated
at. a lonely spot near Dry harbor. In
the neighborhood are men many of
the old Spanish ruins, in the secret
cellars of which It Is known that the
Cuban Insurgents have from time to
lime hidden arms and shipped them
olT to Cuba at their leisure, defying
the native defectives, who have
always failed to locate these store
Matters stood thus when a few days
nfcu Just before daylight an open boat
with 11 men arrived Just olT Runaway
bay on the north side of tho Island.
The boat had come from Cuba, nnd
those on board were Cantalu L. Prado
Souor Zolamoa, J. F. Lumones, U.
Maggnrro.P. Forma, G. Luvls, M.
Laro, P. P. Morales, a servant and
two reporters for American papeis.
Thoy hadcomo, it subsequently trans
pired, with dispatches from Antonio
Macco for the Cuba Junta here.
Tlirco of tho men woro put nshoro
at Runaway bay with .Instructions to
innko their way with all speed to
Kingston, on the opposlto side of the
Island. The men traveled by road
and reached the railroad lino at
Ewnrton station. When about to
board tho train tho three wcro ar
rested by a pollco seargeantnnd taken
to Dry harbor. Tho medical author
ities ordered tho men and the pollco
who arrested them and tho
driver or tho conveyance from
Ewnrton to Dry harbor to bo placed In
quartlnc. Senor Rondon, president of
tho Junta, and a couple of prominent
Cubans llnally went ovor to Dry hnr-
bor, but wcro not permitted to ap
ilmuoli.cloKcr than JOQjuurda.f rouj,
those In quarantine.
They carried on a conversation In
Spanish with the messengers who
brought reports of tho recent battlo
In Puerto Principe. They spoke of
tho position of tho Insurgents as ex
cellent. Tho organization discipline
of ti'io Cuban forco left nothing to be
desired, and Havana was at their
moroy, they said, hut without a licet
they could not hold tho clty,and noth
ing therefore was to bo gained by an
assault upon It lust yet.
It was gathered that tho Cuban
generals had decided upon a courso of
definite action with a view of forcing
matters. Tho dispatches which the
mou brought aro also understood to
bespeak the assistance of tho Cubans
In Jamaica. It is said the dlssatchcs
Imvo reference to a coup do main that
Gome. Is preparing, and which will
startle tho world In a short tune.
