CO. (THE WOMAN'S STORE.) SILVER REPUBLICANS Formulate Their Principles in a Lengthy Platform. Kansas City, July 6. The platform of the Silver Republican national convention Xollows: We, the Silver Republican party. In na tional convention assembled, declare these as our principles and invite the co-opera-Jion of all who agrea therewith: We recognize that the principles set forth in the Declaration of American In dependence are fundamental and ever lastingly true in their application to gov ernments among- men. We believe the patriotic words of Washington's farewell address to be the words of soberness and wisdom, inspired by the spirit of right and truth. We treasure the words of Jefferson as priceless gems of American statesman ship. We hold in sacred remembrance the broad philanthropy and patriotism of Lincoln, who was the great interpreter of American history and great apostle of human rights and of industrial freedom, and we declare, as was declared by the convention that nominated the great emancipator, that maintenance of the principles promulgated in the Declaration of Independence and embodied In federal constitution "that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalterable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these Tights governments are instituted among men deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed," is essential to the preservation of our republican In Btitutions. We declare our adherence to the prin ciple of bimetallism as the right basis of a. monetary system under our national constitution. A principle that found place repeatedly in Republican platforms, from the demonetization of stiver in 1873 to the St. Louis Republican convention of 1S98. Since that convention a Republican congress and a Republican president, at the dictation of the trusts and money power, has passed and approved a cur rency bill, which in itself is a repudiation of the doctrine of bimetallism advocated therefore by every president and every great leader of his party. This currency law destroys" the full money power of the silver dollar, provides for the payment of all government obli gations and the redemption of all forms of paper money in gold alone retires the time-honored and patriotic greenbacks, constituting one-sixth of the money in circulation and surrenders to banking cor porations a. sovereign function of issuing all paper money, thus enabling these cor porations to control prices of labor and property by increasing or diminishing the volume of money in circulation thus giv ing the banks power to create panics and Jjring disaster upon business enterprises: The provisions of this currency law making the bonded debt of the republic payable in gold alone changes the con tract between the government and the tond holders to the adopting of the lat ter and is direct cpposition to the declara tion of the Matthews resolution passed by congress in 1S7S. for whicn resolution Ithe present Republican president, then a member of congress, voted, as did also all Jeading Republicans, both in the house U-nd in the senate. We declare it to be our 'intention to Sender our efforts to the repeal of this currency law, which not only repudiates the ancient and time-honored principles of the American people, but is violative f the principles of the constitution itself and we shall not cease our efforts until there has been established in its place a monetary system based upon the free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold into money at the present legal ratio of 16 to 1 by the independent action of the United ftates. under which system all paper money shall be issued by the government end all sucn money coined or issued shall be a. full legal tender in payment of all debts, public and private, without excep Ition. We are In favor of a graduated tax tapon incomes and if necessary to accomp lish this we favor an amendment to the constitution. We believe that United States senators fought to be elected by a direct vote of the people and we favor such an amend ment of the constitution and such legisla tion as may be necessary to that end. We favor the maintenance and exten Bion wherever practicable of the merit eystem in the public service, appointment to be made according to fitness, competi tively ascertained and public servants to be retained In office so long as shall be compatible with, the efficiency of the ser vice. Combinations, trusts and monopolies contrived and arranged for the purpose of controlling the prices and quantities of article supplied to the people are un just, unlawful and oppressive. Not only do these unlawful conspiracies fix the prices of commodities in many cases, but they Invade every branch of the state and national government with their pol luting influence and control the actions of the employes and dependents in private life until their influence actually imperils safety and liberty of the citizens. We declare against them. We demand the most stringent laws for their destruction md the most severe punishment of their I jpromatfir g.nA malnTainer.a. and jtbe. euen- AUTO-MOBILE SILK TIES.

We believe the Monroe doctrine to be sound in principle and a. wise national pol icy and we demand a firm adherence thereto. We condemn acts inconsistent with it and that tend to make us parties to the interests and to involve us. in the controversies of European nations; and the recognition of pending treaty of the right of England to be considered in the construction of an inter-oceanlc canal. We declare that such canal, when con structed, ought to be controlled by the United States, in the interest of American nations. We favor the speedy construction of the Xicaraguan canal, to be built and owned and defended by the government of the United States. We observe with anxiety and regard with disapproval the increasing ownership of American lands by aliens, and their growing control over our internal trans portation, natural resources and public utilities. We demand legislation to pro tect our public domain, our natural re sources, our franchises and our internal commerce and to keep them free and maintain their independence of all foreign monopolies, institutions and influences, and we declare our opposition to the leasing of public lands to the United States, whereby corporations and syndi cates will be able to secure control there of and thus monopolize. the public domain, the heritage of the people. We are in favor of principles of direct legislation. In view of the great sacrifices made and patriotic services rendered, we are In favor of liberal pensions to deserving soldiers, their widows, orphans, and other dependants. We believe that enlistment and service should be accepted as conclu sive proof that the soldier was free fiun disease and disability at the time of his enlistment. We condemn the present ad ministration of the pension laws. We tender to the patriotic people of the South African republics our sympathy and express our admiration for them in their heroic attempts to preserve their politi cal freedom and maintain their national independence. We declare that the 'de struction of these republics and the sub jugation of their people to be a crime against civilization. We believe this sym pathy should have been voiced by the American congress as was done in the case of the French, the Greeks, the Hun garians, the Polanders, the Armenians, and the Cubans and as the traditions of this country wduld have dictated. We declare the Porto Rico tariff law to be not only a serious but a dangerous departure from the principles of our form of govern ment. We believe in a republican form of government and are opposed to mon archy, and to the whole theory of imper ialistic control. We believe in self-government a government by consent of the governed and are unalterably opposed to a government based upon force. It is clear and certain that the inhabitants of the Philippine archipelago can not be made citizens of the United States with out endangering our civilization. We are, therefore, in favor of applying to the Philippine archipelago the principles we are solemnly and publicly pledged to ob serve in the case of Cuba. There being no longer any necessity for collecting war taxes, we demand the re peal of the war taxes levied to x:arry on the war with Spain. We favor the immediate admission Into the union of states the territories of Ari zona, New Mexico and Oklahoma. We demand that our nation's promises to Cuba shall be fulfilled In every partic ular. We believe the national government should lend every air. encouragement and assistance toward the reclamation of the arid lands of the United States and to that end we are in favor of a comprehen sive survey thereof and an Immediate as certainment of the water supply avail able for such reclamation, and we believe it to be the duty of the general govern ment to provide for the construction of storage reservoirs and irrigation works so that the water supply of the arid reg ion may be utilized to the greatest pos sible extent in the interests of the people, while preserving all rights of the state. Transportation is a public necessity and the means and methods of it are matters of public concern. Railway companies exercise a power over Industries, business and commerce which they ought not to do and should be made to serve the public interests without making unreasonable charges or unjust discrimination. We ob serve with satisfaction the growing sen timent among the people in favor of the public ownership and operation of public utilities. Peace is the virtue of' civilization and war is its crime. War is only justified when the oppressors of humanity will heed no other appeal, and when the ene mies of liberty will respond to no other demand. However, high and pure may be the purposes of an appeal to arms in the beginning, war becomes immoral when continued for the purpose of subjugation, or for national aggrandizement. We are in favor of expanding our com merce in the interests of American labor and for the benefit of all our people, by every honest and peaceful means. Our creed and our history justifies the nations of the earttfi In expecting that wherever the American flag is unfurled, human labor and political liberty will be found. We protest against the adoption of anv policy that will change in the thought of the world the meaning of our flag. We are opposed to the importation of Asiatic laDorers in competition witn American labor and a more rigid enforce ment of the laws relatinar thereto. The Silver Republican party of the United States, in the forecroinK principles, seeks to perpetuate the spirit and to ad here to the teachings of Abraham Linc oln. BRYAN AND STEVENSON.

"That's Missouri style," said the first patriot. "Is Davis a Missouri product?" meek ly inquired H. N. Gaines, editor of thej oauiio. union. "Born and raised here," was the sym pathetic reply. "Where did his. brains come from?" said Gaines. "Mizzoori, of course." roared the champion, attracting the attention of tnose near. "If you know anything1 about Davis you know," said Gaines, rising from his seat, "that Davis was educated at our university. Missouri may have given him birth, but that wasn't much. Kan sas gave him his brains." men the Kansas crowd yelled so much that the Mlssourians vacated their seats which were promptly occupied by two Kansas men who had been stand lng. THE FLAG STUCK. Oldham's Speech a Disappointment Short Talks Approved. Special to the State Journal.! Kansas City, July 6. The manage ment of the Democratic convention slipped a cog in the machinery which was put up to drop from the rafters a huge flag at the moment Bryan's name was mentioned at the close of the momi nating speech. When "Pitchfork" Tillman read that part of the national platform which de clares that imperialism is the para mount issue in this campaign, the crowd, which had been waiting In more or less disorder for the Important mo ment of the nomination, could no longer be restrained. The enthusiasm was manifested by presiding officers, dele gates and spectators. Every person in the convention hall stood up and cheered. On the upper gallery boundaries and on the supporting trusses men had been standing for hours holding bundles of twentyrflve flags. At this moment they dropped the bundles. The excited crowd seized and tore them open. In less than five minutes these "free" flags, which. by the way, with the ice water, were the only things which were not bringing famine prices in the town, were waving in the hall. The great mass of 20,008 people waving flags made the conven tion hall a sea of colors. The band struck up "My Country, 'Tis of Thee," the assembled thousand joining. Never before has the great and bounding west heard such a volume of music. The crowd outside took it up. The multi tude in and out of the convention hall fairly yelled the words and the effect was wonderful. Following this the usual march around the hall by the delegates carrying the state standards gave way to a demonstration at the platform. One of the ropes holding the flag re fused to slip, and the center was not released. After considerable delay the full dimensions of the monster flag were released and completely screened from the delegates the presiding officer. The officers were finally unveiled by the returning of the flag to its place in the iron rafters, where it remained until the nomination was completed by the roll call of states and the announce ment of the result. Delegate Oldham of Nebraska nomi nated Bryan. He worked very hard do ing it. His voice approached a squeak when he attempted to make it reach the people sitting over fifty feet from the speaker. The speech was not calculated to arouse enthusiasm apparently. It was not what was expected. The chairman and officers near, him talked during Oldham's speech. The news paper men and delegates talked, too; the audience, the guests of the conven tion, as they were called, paid not the slightest attention to Oldham until he closed and named Bryan. Then pande monium again broke loose and con tinued for thirty-one minutes, accord ing to Rock Island time, furnished by Conductor Holden, who runs a Rock Island passenger train out of Topeka. He was off for a trip to see the Demo crats. The day preceding he had charge of the Roosevelt special through Kan sas. The men who seconded the .nomina tion of Bryan had hard trials. The con vention was eager to vote and demands for the roll call were frequent and per sistent. The speakers could do nothing but recite their pieces while the crowd chafed. Apropos of this topic, here's an inci dent which illustrates the tendency of the American people towards less ma chinery in such proceedings. Men of prominence were called upon for speeches during the morning session Thursday. Edwards of Maryland told the crowd he had finished. As he was preparing to take a fresh start some one yelled: "Sit down," but Edwards rambled on and spoiled an otherwise good impres sion. Then came the boy governor of Ken tucky. He approached the ordeal mod estly, but firmly. He made, a few opening remarks, did not apologize for failing to prepare a speech. The gov ernor talked not more than two min utes, then in a burst of eloquence said: "The Democrats of Kentucky, this year, hope to wipe from the fair name of our state the awful disgrace which, has recently befallen us." Mr. Beckham made a true Kentucky bow, then stepped back, bowed again, and turned away plump into the arms of a dozen men who were there to grasp his hands. But to the point of this story. In the afternoon session Edwards of California had a long speech which he was labor ing with. "Beckham's the only man'3 got any sense; he made a short speech," bel lowed a man in the iron work of the roof. Everybody heard this, and the thun derous applause to which the Califor nian bowed and delayed his speech was for the man in the gallery, who touched the hearts of his countrymen with, an outburst against long speeches. GALLANT EANSANS. Two of Them Protect a Pretty Woman Prom Crush. Special to the State Journal. Kansas City. July 6. The Thursday afternoon session of the national con vention was a nerve-destroyer. The be lief that Bryan would be nominated caused a multitude to start for the convention hall soon after the noon ad journment. Long before the doors were opened the streets leading to the hall were blockaded. People paid no atten tion -to the line of policemen who at tempted to keep the street clear. W.' D. Henderson of Topeka was jammed, along with the Journal correspondent, against a telegraph pole. With Ben Schnierle and two or three other Kan sans the two men who were about to be arrested by an officious policeman, started to regain their places in the line. A little woman was caught and commenced screaming as the crowd closed In and pushed her off the walk. Henderson and the Journal reporter took the young woman she was pretty, and lived in Kansas City, remarkable though it may be on their shoulders and carried her out of the crush. She was half fainting In the direction of Henderson when the other members of the party escaped. REACHED NO CONCLUSIOIT. Fusion Committee Conference on Sec ond Place Candidate Again Adjourns. Kansas City, July 6. The conference between the three parties on vice presi dent this morning reached no conclusion and adjourned until 8 o'clock tonight. A request will be made in the conven tion to have the Populists and Silver Republicans-heard in the convention to present their claims. MRS. LEASE HEARD. Writes a Letter to Kansas About Breidenthal. City Special to the State Journal.! Kansas City, July 6. Mrs. Mary E. Lease is fighting John Breidenthal, be cause he declined to permit her to be the whole thing in the campaign of 1S94. A letter signed by Mrs. Lease under date of July 4 Is being circulated among the Kansans. Of Kansas affairs this letter says: "The Topolobampo schemer who holds office under a Republican administra tion, is here ostensibly in the interests of Bryan, though he sent his trained cat (G. C. Clemens) to Indianapolis to manipulate the socialist votes of Kan sas in the interests of the Republicans. Poor old Peter Cooper." Of the ex presidential candidate of the Populists Mrs. Lease says: "James B. Weaver, tired of the World, the world tired of him, is here to lift up his cracked and aged voice for the men and the party, that during" his presidential tour of the country in 1892, bespattered him with stale eggs and over-ripe cabbage, when he attempted to speak, till he was compelled to take refuge in a northern state." CONVENTION GOSSIP. What Kansans Bid and Heard at Kansas City. Special to the State Journal.! Kansas City, July 6. The Kansas peo ple who held tickets to the convention, got in their deadly work yesterday. By going in and out of the hall by various doors, they were able to secure the admis sion of two or three people, and this sys tem seemed to be general, because the banner crowd of the session passed into the convention hall yesterday afternoon. One, by going in one door and out an other, located 23 Kansas people In the convention hall Thursday. THE CALDWELL CAR. Kansas City, July 6. The citizens of Caldwell, Kan., attended the convention in the same style that Tammany came, in special cars. Caldwell is represented by a crowd of enthusiasts who chartered a sleeping car, which was brought to Kansas City and set' out in the yards. The Kansans, when they did any sleep ing, went to this car, the meals being procured up town. The Caldwell crowd had opposition in a crowd from Welling ton. Twenty from Wellington captured the house of an ex-Wellington man, for the week, paying all expenses, furnishing servants to do the work, giving the lady of the house a vacation for the week, the members of the party taking turns in escorting her to the convention. Ed. Hackney is the great sachem of thi3 camp. RTAN STILL AFTER GOVERNORSHIP. Kansas City, July- 6. W. H. Ryan, of Pittsburg, one of the Kansans seeing the convention, is doing some work among the delegates in the interests of his cam paign for governor. Mr. Ryan said to a Journal correspondent: "I said before entering the race, I had the best wishes of John W. Breidenthal, ex-Governor Leedy- and ex-Governor Lewelling ,and many other prominent men among the fusion forces. While Re publican papers have taken me out of the race many times. I am still a candidate. This removal from the list was without any authority from me. "As I have received much encourage ment of late from the laboring people of the state, I purpose to have the Fort Scott convention pass upon this question. The voice of the people is the voice of God: when the people speak at the Fort Scott convention I will abide by their judgment. GROWN GRAY IN A WEEK. Kansas City. Mo., July 6. Major A. P. Shreve, of Topeka, has grown gray this week in Kansas City. He has had general charge of the decorated Kansas headquar ters. He has been on duty night and day and has been so busy that he had not time to eat. The crowds have worn the major out; he has had little to eat and is going home as soon as possible to get some sleep and some of the good things to eat which To peka has on hand. SANG "MY OLD KENTUCKY HOME." Kansas City, July 6. Governor Beck ham, of Kentucky, was one of the not ables who addressed the convention yes terday, during the wait for the platform committee's report. When Beckham fin ished, the delegates in the arena sang "Mv Old Kentucky Home Far Away." This melody was caught up by the crowd and the familiar song swelled out in an inspiring chorus. This was one of the touching incidents of the conven tion. SULZER'S CAMPAIGN. TTaTisas CMtv. .Tnlv 6. If Mr. Sulzer. Of New York, fails to secure the nomination for vice president, the result of his cam paign will be, or should be, an example to those who may come after him.

One of the enthusiasts vaulted over the fence. But by the time tne Hoosier landed, Beal had him. Beal is a short grass cattle man. It was but the work of a moment for him to cause the fence to be retaken, but not so gracefully as at first.

London, July 6. In response to inquir ies cabled to Shanghai in regard to the situation at Pekin the following cable gram has been received from an auth oritative quarter: "Shanghai, Thursday, July 5 Prepare to hear the worst." The danger of a" general revolt in China becomes more and more patent and Europe is being confronted with a rapidly increasing fear, not merely that the international column will be forced from Tien Tsin, but that the interna tional troops at the colonies and treaty ports will stand in grave danger of ex pulsion. In view of the fact that the previous assurances of the viceroys have proved untrustworthy, their prom ises of protection for the whites are hardly convincing. In the meanwhile the hitherto uncon querable jealousies of the European powers stays the hands of Japan though it is hoped an understanding will sooa be reached. The foreign office here has received official dispatches from Tokio today, and the Associated Press under stands that the Japanese government informed the foreign officers that, in ad dition to the forces already landed in China, Japan has 20,000 troops mobilized and ready for action at a moment's no tice when she receives the mandate of the powers. Great Britain is now await ing answers from the chancellories to its proposals.

Chinese Are Killing, Burning and Looting on Every Hand. (Copyright, 1900, by Associated Press.) Tien Tsin, June 29, via Che Foo, July 1, and Shanghai, July 5. Those best in formed in Tien Tsin consider the po sition of the foreigners in Pekin as al most hopeless. It is hopeless to attempt to force the way with the force avail able. Commanders are willing to re sort to desperate means, but to attempt a forced march from Tien Tsin with the forces at hand means certain destruc tion to the artny besides slaughter of tne civilians left at Tien .Tsin. Enough soldiers are necessary to defeat the Chi nese army, maintain communication with the base of supplies and guard the hospitals en route. The water supply is an important problem in a country furnishing none except river wells which are being poisoned. The Chinese are committing terrible atrocities upon the wounded. They are mutilating all the dead which fall into their hands. General Tung Fuh Slang with 10,000 of the best dis ciplined troops in the Chinese army, Mahomedans, is marching from the southwest towards Pekin. The army thereabouts numbers 50,000. The em press fled to her summer palace. The Mahomedan boxers are fighting In He kin. Ten regiments of General Nieh's command north of Tien Tsin are re ported to have deserted and gone to pil lage in the country. Residents declare that the Chinese commune was inaugu rated by peaceable Chinese who have been the greatest sufferers from the foreign soldiers, who are burning the outskirts of Tien Tsin to deprive the enemy of shelter. The boxers are de stroying outlying villages for loot. The smoke of a hundred fires can be seen in every direction. Tien Tsin was not bombarded today for the first time in a fortnight. Fam ilies are returning to their homes with in the concessions. Women and chil dren will be sent to Taku as soon as the travel is safe. No unfriendly Chi namen are visible in the streets. A few of the richest with their families are huddled in the outhouses for protec tion, badly frightened. Others con cealed in various houses shoot at the Europeans on the street. The Chinese dead about Tien Tsin number thou sands. Most of those who have been killed lie unburied in the fields. The river to Taku is full of floating bodies and many have been washed up by the tide. Dogs are feeding on these bodies along the banks. The small American contingents everywhere distinguished itself. Captain McCalla and Major Waller are popular at Tien Tsin. Their men are placed in the lead of every movement. By common consent the British are close beside them. The for eigners in Tien Tsin declare, however, that they owe their livs to the Russians without whom the other small detach ments must have been overwhelmed on that darkest Wednesday when the Chi nese were pressing on every side and the bravest men were abandoning hope. The Russian commander, Colonel Wo zqek. arranged the main body with the civilians to make a sortie In the direc tion of Taku. He left 400 Russians to defend the city and engaged the at tention of the Chinese, the intention be ing for them to ultimately sacrifice themselves. The arrival of the Ameri cans saved the day. Their arrival proved a complete surprise. Among the evidences of Immense Chi nese military preparation for one may be mentioned that arsenals and stores hitherto unknown have been discovered with ten million dollars' worth of arms and ajnmunition of the most modem type. These arms and ammunition have been destroyed in three arsenals outside of Tien Tsin, Several thousand troops under General Nieh are holding the na tive city five miles north of Tien Tsin.

Several foreign commanders have rec ommended that the quartette be deco rated. TEDDY SWEEPS ALONG. Gov.RooseveltReaclies Cleveland and Calls on Hauna. Chicago, July 6. Quietly and unos tentatiously Gov. Theodore Roosevelt of New York last night alighted from a Burlington train, having completed the first stage of his journey home from the Rough Riders' reunion In the far southwest. Only a small crowd was at the station to greet the governor as the train came in. Governor Roosevelt went at once to the Chicago Athletic club, where he rested until 9 o'clock, when he boarded the Lake Shore train en route to Cleveland. The governor made many speeches through the day and always to enthu siasUc audiences. The run was from Quincy on the banks of the Mississippi to Chicago, through the fertile corn belt of Illinois. Speeches, some long, some short, were delivered at Quincy, Camp Point, Augusta, Plymouth, Ma comb, Bushnell, Avon, Abbington, Galesburg, Galva, Kewanee, Princeton, Mendota and Aurora. Toward the lat ter end of the trip the governor's voice failed him, and the stops after that were less frequent. At three points the train sped through at lightning speed, regardless of the presence of crowds and brass bands prepared for a dem onstration. The people at these places had to be satisfied with a bow and a wave of the governor's hand as the spe cial swept past them. Some of Colonel Roosevelt's speeches had reference to the question of poli tics, but in general they were of a pa triotic character, serving as an after math of independence day. Apparently the most endearing term which his ad mirers can apply to the governor 13 "Teddy."' "Hurrah for Teddy," and "McKinley and Teddy" has been the prevailing sentiment of the crowds all along the line. HE SEES HANNA. Cleveland, O., July 6.

There seemed to be a world of long wheat for sale and the market gave way rapidly under these sales. Closing Liverpool cables came about Id lower for the day, causing a second quick break, but Just as it commenced to look as if the bottom would drop out, - the market turned up and closed at a good advance for the forenoon break. There has been too much company on the short side and everybody that traded yesterday and to day sold wheat and soon as tired longs had been shaken out there was no pres sure on the market and when a reaction started the crowd of shorts run to cover, forcing the market up rapidly. The clos ing was strong, but it looks like shorts are pretty well covered and if such is the case we will in all probability get a fur ther decline. CORN Corn was strong. There was a flood of crop damage news from Kansas and Nebraska, some of them from good Seople and telling of sensational damage. :eceipts are running light and ca.h mar kets are showing considerable strength. Dry hot weather for the next ten days will start fireworks in the corn pit, as everybody has a little short corn. OATS Oats advanced in sympathy with corn. PROVISIONS There were only 10.000 hogs at the yards and the market 5c high er, but the futures did not respond, Sep tember pork selling off 20c a barrel. Pack ers were best buyers on the break. J. C.
