the latter action Is a settled fact.

Teller on the Nomination.
Pueulo, Col., July 11. Senator Tel
ler last night approved the following
Interview for tho Associated Press,
after receiving tho numerous tele
grams from his silver colleagues re
garding a conference, which will
probably bo hold at Denver:
"What do you think of Mr. Bryan's
"I consider tho nomination un ex-
ceptlonnlly strong one,"- said tho
senator. "Bryan Is an able map, of
high character, a strong friend of
silver, and closo to tho people. Ho
will make an excellent president,"
"Do you think he can sccuro the
support of tho silver men who left
the St. Louis convention?"
"The men who left tho St. Louis
convention," replied Mr. Teller, "will
make tho silver question paramount
to nil others. It is not a question of
polities with them, but of principle.

lit this time, as I havo received sev

the country on a souna unanciai sys

tho money of the constitution. To
that end all the energies or the silver

Killed by a Posse.
The Dalles, Or., July 11. Ed
Murphy, alias George Mooney, alias
Burdotto Wolf, who killed; Andrew
Artmnn, at n sheep camp InGrantCo.
recently, wns run down and killed by
n posso Monday, July 2, on tho Joh n
Day river, near Dayvlllc. Following
is an account of tho affair sent by
Justice Martin, of Popular.
"Artcr the crime, Constable W. B.
Crowne, or Dayvlllo, got a warrant
and started with a posso In pursuit.
They came up with their man on the
John Day river on Juno 30. Tho ilrst
Intimation they had of his where
abouts was a couple of shots from a
Winchester fired ut them from tho
cover of tho thicket. Hero Murphy
kept a posso of 20 men at bay until
midnight of tho night of July 2, when
ho made a break from cover, and wns
killed. Ho had gouo till this time,
nearly three days and nights, with the
thermometer registering over 100 In
the shade during tho day, without
food or water, and had not
spoken a word, though repeatedly
called on to surrender. An Inquest
was held, and a verdict of justifiable
killing was brought in."
Persons Just in from MitchelI,Crook
county, say It is generally believed
that Murphy or Mooney is uono other
than Burdette Wolfe, who killed
Birdie Morton, his betrothed sweet
heart, near Mount Tabor, October 12,
1802. It Is said that ho admitted to
tho two sheophcrders, Andrew Art
man and Herman Frost, that he
was Wolf, and that afterwards fear
ing his secret would bo told, went
back and tried to kill them. Ho mur
dered Arttnau, but Frost escaped and
helped raise tho posse that hunted
the murderer down and killed him.
People at Mitchell had no description
of Wolf, and the only basis for such
an opinion is the statement attri
buted to him.

Children Ory for
The demonstration which greeted
Bryan was the spontaneous outburst
or an enthusiasm kindled by the
touch or magnetic eloquence. The
star or the brllllantyoung orator from
tho plains or Nebraska had burned
brightly on tho horizon of tho con
vention for two days. There wero
several demonstrations In his behalf.
Thursday, but this walo was the first
opportunity ho had to show himself.
Tho audience had been warmed up,
and was full of pent-up enthusiasm.
The powder magazlno needed but tho
spark, and Bryan applied It with tho
skill or genius. His very appearance
captured tho audience. Dressed liko
a plain Westerner, In n black suit of
alpaca, ho stood with a smllo playing
oyer his handsome, mobile, clear-cut
face, while with uplifted hand ho in
vited tho waiting thousands.
He has a face whoso lines might
havo been chiseled rrom alabaster by
some master sculptor. Ills mouth Is
linn, his eyes bright, his nose Roman,
his raven hair is brushed back from
his forehead and falls to his collar.
With well-modulated voice, which
gradually roso in pitch until It pene
trated the furthermost limits of tho
hall, ho wovo tho spell upon his audi
ence, ills speech was a mastcrplcco
of fovercnt oratory. With consummate
eloquence ho stated tho caso of sliver
and parried the arguments of the gold
men. Mure Antony never applied 1110
match moro effectively.
The convention took tiro with
enthusiasm. It crackled as with tho
war of flames. Hill was forgotten; all
else was forgotten for the moment.
Cheers swelled to yells, yells becamo
screams. Every chair In tho valley of
the Coliseum nnd overy chair In tho
vnst wilderness on the hillsides be
came a dock on which frantic men
und women wero wildly wuvlng
handkerchiefs, canes, huts and um
brellasanything movable. Some,
liko men demented, divested them
selves of their coats and flung than
high In the air.
Tho ovation given him wns second
only to 'tho ono bestowed upon the
New York senator, Moro than 1000
men wero standing, und tho air was
full of papers and hats. Four times
tho cheers spent themselves and roso
again with the roll of nn advancing
wave. Bryan stood wtth a smllo
playing on his faco and with uplifted
arm motioning for silence. Even tho
attention given Tillman and Hill did
not equal tho breathless eagerness
with which thousands peered forward
to watch tho first sentence of this
young man, whom many Westerners
consider their foremost orator. They
wero not disappointed. Ho spoke dc
precatingly of himself, -
'But,'- ho added, "tho humblest
citizen in the land, when clad In tho
armor of righteousness, Is stronger
than till tho hosts of error."
"Mr Chairman und Gentlemen of
the Conventien: I would bo pre
luuiptuoiis Indeed to present myself
against the distinguished gentleman
to whom you havo listened, if this
wero but a measuring of ability, but
this Is not 11 contest of persons. The
humblest citizen In nil tho land, when
clnd In the armor of righteous anise,
Is stronger thnn all the hosts of error
that they can bring. I como to spenk
to you In (Icfent-o or 11 cnuso, holy ns
tho cause of liberty tho cuuso of
hutnn nit y, When this debute Is eon
eluded) u motion will bo mode to lay
upon the table the resolution offered
In commchdattou of the administra
tion, and also a resolution In condom
nation or the administration. I shall
object to bringing this question
down to the level or persons. Tho
Individual Is hut an atom. He Is
born, he acts, he dies; but principles
arc eternal, and this has been a con
test of principles.
"Never before in the history of this
count r,y has then ix-cu witnessed such
a contest ns that through which wo
have passed. Never before In the his
tory of American politics has a great
Issue been fought out as has this Is
sue by yoters themselves. On March
I, 18tCi, a few Democrats most of
them membcisof congress, Issued un
address to the Democrats of tho tui
tion, asserting that the money ques
tion was the paramount question of
the heur: asserting also tho right of
tho majority or tho Democratic party
to control tho position of tho party
on this paramout Issue, concluding
with the request that all believers In
the freecolungo of silver In the Dem
ocratic party should organize and
tako charge of antj control the policy
or tho Democratic party.
"Thrco months later, at Memphis,
mi organization was perfected, and
tho silver Domocrnts went forth
openly ahd boldly nnd courageously
proclaiming this belief and declaring
that they would crystalllzo In a plat
rorm tho declaration which they had
made; and then began tho conflict,
with azcul approaching thozenl which
inspired tho crusaders who followed
Peter tho Hermit. Our silver Demo
crats went forth-o-victory, until
they are assembling now, not to dis
cuss, not to debate, but cntor upon
tho judgment rendered by tho plain
pcoplo of this country.
"In this contest, brother has been
arrayed against brother, and futher
against son. Tho warmest tics of
love and acquaintance and association
have been disregarded. Old leaders
havo been aut asido when they re
fused to glvo expression to tho senti
ments of those whom thoy laid, and
now lenders havo sprung up to give
direction to this causa of truth. Thus
has tho contest been waged, and wo
have assembled hero under as binding
and solemn Instructions ns over wero
fastened upon representatives of tho
pcoplo. Wo do not como ns .individ
uals. As Individuals, wo might have
been glad to compliment tho gontlc
lnuu from Now York (Hill), but wo
know that tho pcoplo for whom wo
speak would never bo willing to put
him In n position whero he could
thwart the will of tho Democratic
party. I Bay it was not n question of
person It was a question of principle;
and It Is not with gladness,my friends,
that wo find ourselves brought Into
conflict with those who nro now ar
rayed on tho other side.
"Tho gentleman who just preceded
mo (Governor Hill) spoke of tho old
state of Massachusetts. Let mo as
sure him that not one person In all
this csuventlon entertains tho least
hostility to tho pcoplo of tho state of
Massachusetts, but wo stand hero rep
scntlng people who aro tho equals be
fore the law of tho citizens of the
state of Massachusetts. When you
como before us and tell us we shall
disturb your business Interests, wo re
ply that you have dlsturbcdlour bust-
to you that you havo mado too limited
In Its application tho definition of it
business man. Tho man who lsr em
ployed for wages Is ns much a busfnesn
man ns tho employer, Tho attorney
In n country town la ns much u busi
ness mamas tho corporation counsel
In tho great metropolis. Tho rncr
chatlt at tho dross-roads store Is ns

or New York. Tho farmer wiio goes
forth In the morulngand tolls till day,
begins In spring and tolls nil summer,
and by tho application or bruin and
muscle to tho natural resources or
this country creates wealth, Is as
much 11 business man as the man who
goes upon the board of trade and bets
upon the price of grain."
Tlio sentiments of the speaker wero
cheered again und again, and the gal
leries seemed to bo a mass of white,
because of tho hankcrchlers waving.
Cheers were renewed again and again,
nnd It was somo minutes before Mr.
Bryan could bo henrd. He proceeded
"The miners who go a thousand reot
Into tho earth and bring Torth from
their hldlng-plnce precious metnls, to
be poured Into the channels of trade,
arc as much business men as the finan
cial magnates who, In a buck room,
coiner tho monov of tho world."
The rrcc-sllvcr men at this point
broke forth In tremendous cheers. Or
dor was finally restored, and Mr.
Bryan continuing, said:
"Wo como to speak for this broader
class of bulsncss men. Ah, my friends,
we say not ono word against thoso
whollvo upon tho Atlantlo coast; but
thoso hardy v pioneers who havo
braved all tho dangers of tho wilder
ness, who havo mado tho desert to

near to.nnturo's heurt, whero cun min

whero thoy pralso tholr Crcntor, und

that wo speak. Wo do not como as

homes, our families nnd prosperity,
Wo havo petltloncd,nnd our entreaties

Wo beg no longor. Wo ontrcnt no

"Tho gentleman from Wisconsin
has said ho fcurs a Robosptorro. My

friends, In this land of tho free, you
