'Phone Vn Importer1 Room Bell 'Phone 577 TWO KITES-ONE STRING-NO TAIL In presenting Theodore Roosevelt as a candidate of the Republicans fof the vice presidency, that party has beyond question placed by the side of McKinley the strongest running mate possible. He not only addsthe greatest strength that was possible to be added, but It might be safely asserted that no candi date for the vice presidency would have added force to the McKinley ticket. With any of the candidates for the rlat-e Roosevelt was certainly not an applicant the ticket would have been made up of McKinley, the kite, and somebody else, the tail. With Roosevelt there is no tail. It Is like the modern tailless kite, only there are two of them, and it is in the political sky instead of the ether itself. Roosevelt has bfen named despite any wire pulling or any leading, and was the spontaneous choice, of the masses of the delegates in the convention. His nomination was forced upon him. Those who were for him were swept in the tide toward his nomination. Those who were against him were swept away with it. Roosevelt is a typical American; lie is as popular in the west and south as in the north and east. He is claimed by New Mexico and by New England. He is an all round American. He has had a varied life's experience which i3 al lotted to but few men who have not yet attained their forty-third year. A graduate of Harvard at the age of 22, he went into poiitics quite as natur allv as he went onto the ranch or into the army. , Two years after he left col lege he was a prominent candidate for mayor of New York; when but 28 a civil service commissioner. A few years la ter, in lS!)",and for two years thereafter he was at the head of the New York po lice board. The crooks and criminals, political and legal, never received such a driving out into the open as under the reins of his administration in the office of police commissioner. j . At the time of the blowing up of the "Maine" he was assistant secretary of the navy. His resignation of this office to enter, and assist in the organization of the Rough Riders is recent and fa miliar history. His distinguished con duct in action in Cuba, his gallantry, his courage, his humanity and gentle ness made him the pride of his regiment and the hero of the Santiago campaign. His political battle in New York state was a succession of ovations followed by the elevation to the high office of ex ecutive of the Kmpire state. His determination to cleanse political ways and byways has endeared him to those interested in honest and real re form. His independence, cleanness, fearlessness and bravery in civic as well as military life make him a hero in peace as he was in war. He is as familiar with the west as the rollicking cowboy, and is more cul tured and better equipped in a literary capacity than a typical New England professor. As an author alone he is famous. His books on "Ranche Life in the West' and his histories covering the navies of the world and of the sea battles of this country, put him in the front rank of authors and historians. His recent articles on Cromwell show that he is no stranger to the historic periods of the past. His many addresses, essays. interviews, articles and speeches are pointed, incisive and elevating. To his foresight as Assistant Secretary of the Navy perhaps more than to any other man in Washington previous to the act ual outbreak of hostilities with Spain in no small part, may be attributed the great Dewey victory at Manila. The Republican party has certainly named a double-header. THE REPUBLICAN" PLATFORM. The principles upon which the Repub lican party will go to the country and ask an endorsement have been formula ted and announced at Philadelphia. Re liance is placed largely upon the party record In connection with the victories in war and the revival in business and a promised continuation of existing condi tions. On the subject of the currency the platform says: "We it ew our allegiance to the prin ciple of the gold standard and declare our confidence in the wisdom of the legislation of the Fifty-sixth congress by which the parity oi' all our money and the stability of our currency on a gold basis has been secured. We recog nize that the rates are a potent factor in production and business activity and for the purpose of further equalizing anil of further lowering the rates of in terest we favor such monetary legisla tion as will enable the varying needs of the season and of all sections to be pro perly met in order that trade may be evenly sustained, labor steadily employ ed and commerce enlarged. The volume of money in circulation was never so great rer capita as it is today. We de clare our steadfast opposition to the free and unlimited coinage of silver." The trust question is referred to as follows: "We recognize the necessity and pro priety of the honest co-operation of cap ital to meet new business conditions and especially to extend our rapidly in creasing foreign trade, but we condemn all conspiracies and. combinations in tended to restrict business to create monopolies, to limit production or to control price and favor such legislation a will effectually restrain and prevent all such abuses, protect and promote competition and secure the rights ot production, laborers and all who are en gaged in industry and commerce." The tariff utterance is found In the following: "We renew our faith in the policy of protection of American labor. In that policy our industries have been estab lished, diversified and maintained. By protecting the home market, the compe tition has been stimulated and produc tion cheapened. Opportunity to the in ventive genius of our people has been secured and wages in every department of labor maintained at high rates, high er now than ever before, always distin guishing our working people in their better condition of life from those of any competing country, enjoying the bless ing of American common schools, secure in the right of self-government and pro tected in the occupancy of their own markets, their constantly increasing knowledge and still have enabled them finally to enter the markets of the world. We favor the associated policy of reciprocity so directed as to open our markets on favorable terms for what we do not ourselves produce in return for free foreign markets." More effective restriction of foreign immigration is demanded. Reference is made to the weakness of American shipping interests but no en dorsement of the Hanna-Payne ship subsidy scheme appears. The customary resolution In regard to pensions appears. The president's policy regarding the civil service is commended. Southern methods of eliminating the negro vote are declared to be revolu tionary. Improvement of public highways is endorsed to the extent of advising the people and the states to do the work themselves. Extension of the rural free delivery is favored; also reclamation of arid lands. Promise of statehood is held out to Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma- Regarding reduction of war taxes the platform says: "The Dingley act amended to provide sufficient revenue for the conduct of the war has so well performed its work that t has been possible to reduce the war debt In the sum of $40,000,000. So ample are the government's revenues, and so great is the public confidence in the in tegrity of its obligations that its newly funded two per cent bonds sell at a premium. The country is now justified n expecting and It will be the Dolicv of the Republican party to brine about a reduction of the war taxes." Government construction and owner ship of the Nicaragua canal is favored. The reference to the colonial policy of the administration takes on an apolo getic tone, but the promise of independ ence for Cuba is renewed. On the whole the platform appears to be lacking in the old time ring and bears evidence of halting and uncer tainty. THE CONVENTION" REPORT. The State Journal has spread Itself on the national convention which closed today. What do you think of the re ports we have given you the thousands of words by wire ahead of all competi tors.

Majority in Montana Convention. Butte, Mont., June 21. The Clark wing of the Democratic state conven tion reconvened this morning, seating all contesting delegations in favof of Clark, which with uncontested delega tions in his favor gave a total of 375 out of 4S1 of the state representation. Res olutions strongly condemning the Daly faction and demanding the resignation ol Democratic state officers and con gressmen as unfit for office were passed. t-enator Clark addressed the convention The delegates to the national conven tion were elected as follows: W.

When the Prohibition convention committee on resolutions attempted to confine the declarations of the conven tion to a simple platform, the mem bers attempted a piece of work which the convention speedily undid. Van Bennett of Columbus started the melee. He said: "This thing of coming here and going home and failing to fight the liquor traffic is all nonsense. We want something which Is worthy of the consideration of other partiea. Resolutions of flapdoodle are nonsense. Let's do something. The Republican party has legalized the rum power. All of the drunkenness In the United States belongs to the Republican party." Mr. Bennett supplemented these re marks with a plea for the adoption of resolutions. After two hours' debate the fesult was found to be as follows: 'Whereas. The United States su preme court has declared that the liquor traffic has no inhefent rights; for legislative body to legalize a traffic that has no Inherent rights, that manu factures drunkards and is prolific In causing poverty, crime and premature death, is not only dishonest but is a great public calamity. Our govern ment was formed to do good. Tne oath bound obligation governs senators and representatives to require them to en act laws to Mess and not to curse the people. Prohibition. Is a blessing; li cense is a curse. Recognizing that a free and untram melled ballot is the safeguard of out iberties and the most potent factor in the administration of our govern ment, we therefore denounce the vin dictive legislation of the Populist and Republican legislation of four years ago by which they so deformed our ballot law as to make it extremely difficult for new and minority parties to exer cise the rights of suffrage, and that it was an outrage upon popular govern ment and a lasting stigma on the par ties perpetrating it, and we demand the immediate restoration of the orig inal law. We tender our most sincere thanks to out1 friends in Shawnee county for their fidelity and loyalty to our pro hibitory cause for petitioning and la boring with the legislature and thereby defeating that' provision of senate bill No. 8 which aimed to repeal the sec tion of our present law which imposes the penalty of imprisonment for thirty davs for the first offense under tne law. While there are many pertinent ques tions of government to which we could give our suffrage we confidently be lieve that when our party comes into power it will be perfectly competent to maintain a stable government and enact iust and efficient laws for the control of all our possessions and for all social, commercial, industrial ana political interests. And while we rec ognize the liquor traffic is the greatest foe to civilization, the arch enemy of the human race, the citadel of the forces that corrupt government, de grade politics and promote poverty and crime, we earnestly urge and in vite to join in with us in tull fellow ship all those citizens of Kansas who on this one foremost issue of enforcing our prohibitory law are with us agreed in the full belief that this party, n elected, will strengthen the law bv adequate legislative enactment and will enforce it to the fullest extent. We further pledge ourselves to the people of Kansas that if they will elect the candidates we nominate that they will close every known illegal drinking place in the commonwealth. "We proclaim to the country that in the establishment of the army canteen by executive power over and asainst a law supported by Republicans. Dem ocrats and Populists, the constitution ality of which has never been passed upon by the highest court ot tne iana, is an outrage against justice, an injury to the public service and a vicious course to destroy the boys who gal lantv, patriotically and fearlessly of fered their lives for the defense of their country; and we hereby condemn the president and his attorney general for usurping the authority to nullify a law passed in the interests of the na tion, our brave soldiers and the homes of our people in the states as well as in our new possessions abroad. "We deplore the open and manifest indifference of our state and county officials to the open violations of the prohibitory law. and we charge the Re publican, Populist and Democratic par ties in Kansas with utterly ignoring this issue both in platform and prin ciple. "We are opposed to all trusts and mnnonolies that discriminate against one class of people to the detriment of another, afid we demand such legis lation as shall iirotect the laboring classes from unjust exactions and en able them to enjoy the fruits of their toil. We believe that profit sharing and arbitration should be substituted for strikes and bloodshed." Delegates to the national convention were elected as follows: B. C. Hoyt, Goodrich. W. J. Adams.

Reports have been received here from Canton, that owing to the representations of the for eign consuls, Li Hung Chang has con sented to remain in Canton. JAPAN MUST ACT. Yokohama. June 21. The reports of the murder of foreign ministers at Pekin and of the death of Admiral Sey mour, although viewed with suspicion, have created a profound sensation. The press expresses the opinion that Japan must, with or without the consent of the powers, adopt active measures. The naval and military officers are very busy. Probably the whole Hiroshira division, under command of General Fukashima, will be afloat within a few days. The Russian cruiser Rurik has arrived here with the new Russian min ister to Japan and will leave for Taku today. SEYMOUR'S MARCH. London, June 20. A news agency dis patch from Shanghai, dated June 20, says: "After an arduous march and fre quent fighting with the Chinese, Vice Admiral Seymour arrived at Pekin Sun day afternoon. On five occasions the Chinese attacked the column in great force. There were many mounted men among the Chinese, but most of the na tives were badly armed. At times they fought with admirable courage and bravery. The losses of the Chinese dur ing the march are estimated at 500 killed. The losses of the foreigners were trifling. "The exact state of affairs Inside Pekin it is impossible to describe in view of the many conflicting reports, nothing has been received from the legations or foreigners there. "Surprise is expressed at the fact that a large force of Indian troops has not been ordered here. YERKES' REMARKS. In Seconding the Nomination of President McKinley. Convention Hall, Philadelphia, June 21. Mr. Yerkes of Kentucky in second ing the nomination of President Mc Kinley said: Mr. Chairman and Fellow Delegates: The supreme thought in my mind at this moment is what remains to be said that ought to be said; and that in time of danger one's thought naturally turns to his home. I recall that in the historic Philadelphia convention of 1856 liberty-loving men from my state sat as delegates in that body. In contrast with this immense audience this huge hail with its splendor of decoration and its superb equipment, that gathering would seem to be of small import but in devotion to freedom, intensity and in force of utterance, in eternal results that assemblage has no peer in the history of conventions. Forty years after that body adjourned Kentucky for the first time gave her electoral vote to a Re publican presidential candidate, Major William McKinley (applause). Recog nized as a citadel of Democracy she had capitulated to the Republicans in the noted state campaign of 1895. She was Republican in 1S96, is Republican to day (applause) and as such seconds this nomination. "It would be, gentlemen, but a fitting tribute to our president and to the in dustrial, diplomatic and martial vic tories of his administration if every state placed the stamp of its approval upon his course of conduct; and if op portunity were given there would join in this majestic chorus of national en dorsement voices comins across the waters from our new to our old shores voices coming from our insular pos sessions to this venerable city where a nation was born and - consecrated to liberty, to freedom and to independ ence and where more fitting place for this universal chorus to sound forth than in this old time city? "Now, gentlemen, these voices that would come from abroad would ring at every home from which for the first time the flag of freedom floats, and that by the orders of our president. Fur thermore, today they are linked to our progress and to our destiny, and thei'ein stable government, domestic tranquil ity and Christian civilization are as sured to them; and just as Lincoln's name sounds to the emancipated slave and his children so the name of .Presi dent McKinley will be to those liber ated millions of political serfs. (Ap plause.) We believe that with the same leader ship, the same policies that gave us vic tory in 1SP6, that same winning will be repeated in 1900.

Now, it will be a campaign in which we will show what has been accomplished, prophesies ful filled and pleges redeemed, it will be a representation of actualities of acts. You will have a rapid protralture, you will have a shifting panorama for the present as compared with the past and whether this comparison be made by the speaker on the hustings, by the pub lic press, in the marvelous lines of mod ern progress, it will present an argu ment so forcible that the minds of the people can not escape it. If there be left among us plain practical common every day sense then the columns that followed President McKinley's leader ship four years ago, will be doubled in enthusiasm and In numbers this year. (Applause.) In 1896 we gave you an old representa tive slaye-holding state. By so doing, we removed one charge against our par ty, that it was sectional. The Ohio river was crossed; Republicanism marched southward and this sectional line disap peared from the map. We will do it again.(Applause).' We will still show the people in the north, in the south and the east that Republicanism to use the language of our distinguished chairman means action and is always moving forward. A Kentuckian, a lover of my native state, believing in the integrity and honesty of her citi zens. I have the fullest confidence in them; 1 believe they will make final re sponse to every argument and that the response will be made at our polls in next November in electing electors to vote for President William McKinley for re-election. (Applause.) SPEECH OF MR. KNIGHT Hade Before the Republican National . Convention. Convention Hall, June 21. In seconding- the nomination of President McKinley Mr. Knight of California said in part: "We all know what the Democratic party is; we all know what the Demo cratic party was. We all know what the Democratic party will be until the crack of doom. (Applause and laugh ter.) I believe that it has often been said that our forefathers bullded better than they knew. I say no; they knew better when they had an opportunity of building. (Applause.) They had the history of the past. They had the op pression and the journey that brought them to the seashores. They knew the mistakes of the governments of the old world, and they tried as best they knew to avert and avoid them in the building of this new and great nation. One thing was stamped on their hearts and their minds freeaom to all and equal rights before the law, and that has? been one of the cardinal principles of the Republican party. (Applause.) "Washington was in favor of pro tection, Jefferson was in favor of ex pansion, and the Republican party as sumed these great principles In 1S56, and never has deserted those great cardinal principles that have been productive of so much good. (Applause.) The Democratic party has always put the arm of labor in a sling. (Laughter and applause). The Democratic party has blackened the eye of commerce. (Continued laughter). The Democratic party has crushed the foot of progress. It has put Uncle Sam to bed every time it has had anything to do with the gov eminent (laughter and applause) and besides that, it seeks alliances with the vicious and the outcast of other lands. who have no abiding place under the shadow of their own flag. (Applause). This is the indictment against it. "It is going to have a Fourth of July in Kansas City I wonder why the Fourth of July was picked out. The 'Fourth of July.' Do you remember " 'Our bugles sang truce when the night cloud had lowered. And the sentinel stars set their watch in the sky, And thousands had sunk on the ground overpowered. The weary to sleep and the wounded to die. that man (pointing to a portrait of Mc Kinley) slept with his heart on the flai and no Democrat did that in those days. (Tremendous cheers and a voice, "Thats' right, that's right.") California is in favor of expansion. Why? Because when that wearied pathnnder(Fremont) crossed the level plains, climbed the mountains of rocks and viewed the promised land the Democrats did not count her as part of this national union. All through the acquisition of Call tornia they use the same argument on the stump and In the United States sen ate as is used at the present and we feel in California the injustice of that kind of argument and you Democrats, if you want to hear anything about anti expansion, get Corwin's speech of 1847 and read it and there is not an anti- expansionist in the land that can make one like it today. (Laughter and ap plause). California comes here to sec ond; California favors with enthusiasm the nomination of William McKinley. Today he stands as one beloved at home, before all the nations of the earth and as one of the greatest and best rulers that ever graced the presidential chair of the United States. (Applause.) November will soon De nere and there will be no doubt as to the results. The ballots are now counted in the minds and hearts of the American people and four more years of respect to law, respect to the flag and of hope, and faith In the perpetuity of American institutions and of honor to the name of William McKinley will follow this nomination.
