Was Nomia:ted on the First Biullot--Other Telegraph. KANSAS CTrr, July 6--The resol utions committee yesterday decided for an ex plicit declaration for free silver crinage at 16 to one. The vote stood 27 to 25 and was taken at :1:30 o'clock. At 6:05 o'clock Hon. W. J. Bsyan of Nebrasda was placed in nomination for president by 1 Oldham and he was de claired the unanimous choice of the convention. At 2:45 this afternoon Hon. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois was chosen for vice president He was elected on the first ballot. Mr. Stevenson was placed in nomination by J. R. Williams. Hon. Chas. A. Towne of Minnesota was also placed in nomination, but failed to re ceive a sufficient number of votes to se cure the second p'ace on the ticket. There were four other candidates. KANSA CITY, July 4.--"Bryan will not run on any platform which does not contain a specific declaration in fa vor of free coinage at a ratio of 16 to 1. If this convention does not put that declaration in the platform they will have to nominate another candidate for president." This statement was made during the day to the Associated Press by Judge A.' S. Tibbitts of Lincoln, delegate-at-large from Bryan's own state and chairman of the state delegation to this conven tion. It serves to emphasize the deter mined stand taken by the Nebraska statesman. His declaration is that he stands for a principle and those who would have him change or modify his views are swinging simply in the wind of expediency. Bryan's Emphatic Statement. "After talking with Mr. Bryan for some time," said Mr. Tibbitts, "with respect to his position and the attitude his friends ought to assume in this con vention, I asked him this blunt ques tion, 'Suppose the convention should re fuse to adopt a platform containing a distinct declaration in favor of free coinage at 16 to L?' 'Then,' said Mr. Bryan emphatically, 'I will not run as the candidate.' " That the convention will bow to Bryan's desires, nobody who comes in contact with the delegates can doubt for an instant. Some discordant ele ments are here, but they are not menac ing. A fev men assert with a positive ness quite serious, that they propose to carry the fight against a specific declar ation on the silver question to the flouor of the convention. MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN EVEIl, Towne Men Confident lie Will l.e Named for Second Place. KANSAS CITY, July 4.-The Towne men are more confident than ever that they will nominate their man for vice president. They say the fight is be tween Towne and Danforth of Now York, and the question of expediency will now be considered. Danforth is the personal and political friend of Da vid B. Hill. Already the point is being made that he is Hill's candidate and that he is to be named for the purpose of conciliation of Hill for the manner in which his suggestions were treated by Mr. Bryan on his recent visit to Lincoln. This is a feature, however, which cuts both ways, as there is an element among the delegates who do not feel like ffering anything in the way of olve branches. It is known that Hill and his friends have some hesitancy about pulding Danforth for the nomination becanse they have doubts of success if there is a distinct declaration for 10 to 1. The fact that the New Yorkers seem willing to allow the convention to take its own course without making any determined effort to name a candi date has given the Towne men a great deal of encouragement and they are more aggressive than ever. Narrowed Down to Two Mi,. Western and Southern representa. tives assert that the fight for vice pres ident has niirrowed down to two men, both personal friends of W. J. Lryan, and both alleged to be absolutely ac ceptable.. lThcy are Towine of Minnic sota and Sulzer of New York. Of the two men they agree Towne has the better of the contest, because it is pointed out that he will represent a fu sion of all the silver elements. Mr. Sr.lzer was inclined to be reticent when he was told of the situation. He admitted that he knew the East had practically decided to let the conven tion be dominated by Western men, and admitted that Mr. Towne was leader in the race by saying: "Mr. Towne is very acceptable to Mr. Bryan. So am I. If Mr. Towno is thought to be the better man by the leaders I will withdraw in favor of him. We understand each other perfectly, and Mr. Bryan understands us. Mr. Towne has the advantago of already being on two tickets, but I claim to oftt'et that by being strong in the East, particularly in my own state." Elliott Danforth was not disposed to talk, merely remarking: ".t know that 1 am mentioned, but am not putting uort}h aly effort.'' SLEADLIIS IN CONFERIENCE. rnactially IDecide on a p1,c lic ic!ec!lara tion for silver.

For the purpose of filling vacancies which may now exist or hereafter arise, the committee of former employes, of which T. B.

No per son shall be eligible to this list who has been guilty of any acts of lawless ness or violence. Judge Thomnas H. Long Suicides. TERRE HAUTE, Ind., July 4.-Judge Thomas B. Long, long known to the Indiana bar, a 33d degree Mason and past grand master of the Indiana grand lodge of Masons, committed suicide here.

TANGIER, July 4.-There is great ex citement at Feze owing to French en croachments on Oasis of Tount. A mob killed the manager of a French con cern, who was an American citizen. The British consul has demanded the assistance of authorities to protect his house and the Jewish ghetto is be sieged. The legation here is making serious representations on the subject.

WAsmx(c;rox, July 4.--Secretary lay has reccived cablegrams from Consul Goodnow, at Shanghai, and United States Consul Mc Wade at Canton. The I one from Goocjnow is as follows: "On the 27th there were two legations standing in Pekin. The emperor and empress are prisoners in the palace. City gates are closed. Prince Tuan and his force of I'oxers are in control of the city. Complete reign of anarchy in streets." The message from McWade says: "Viceroy Li Hlung Chang assures me that he will immediately issue a strong proclamation commending the preserva tion of peace and order in his provinces and will take the necessary measure.i to protect f.reigtners so far as possibh He has largely increased the force of his army."

LoNDno, July 4.-The fact that a re lief column has been unable to leave Tien Tsin in response to the pathetic prayer of the beleaguered legations at Pekin is generally regarded in London as almost the last vestige of hope for the unfortunates. The worst is feared and the massacre of Cawnpore is on everyone's minid. While the general British comment severely criticises America's non-par ticipation in the bomnbardmnent of the Taku forts, several of the London pa pers are li ginning to find out that Rear Adnilmal eiempft had Lettefr foresight than was poisscs:e. d by the allied chan cellors of E:ropl; when he protested against the attack upon the Taku forts on the ground that it would throw the Chinese governml nt into the arms of the Boxers and make all the other na tions technically at war with China and the inadvisability of attacking Taku when the international forces were manifestly insufficient even to guard the legations and the Europeans in the interior from retalliation. GERMAN FLAG INSULTED. Chinese Will I ay Derrly for Murder of Von Ketteler. BEIRLN, July 4.-The murder of the German minister at Pekin, Baron Von Ketteler, has brought the relations of Germany and China to a crisis. The emperor, in his speech at Kiel, voice( the indignation of Germany when he said that the German flag had been in sulted, and that t'he outrage demanded exemplary punishment. The sending of the first division of the fleet to China leaves the German navy at home in complete, and demonstrates the unwis doma of the reichstag in not having made provision for the efficient naval defense of the country.
