Madrid. June 2.1— Thirty persons were killed
last night In a train wreck in the Province of
Teiuei, one of the most mountainous in Bpaln,
abounding in torrentp. The train waft thrown
fro.n the rails on a iiridge over th« Jiloca River
and the coaches were burned.
The bridge also took fire and the engine fell
Into ih" river, dragging a number of coaches
with it. A terrific storm was rasing at the time
and the wind fanned the flames Boms of the
coaches were caught on the projecting parts of
th» bridge and hung in mid air. and by the lifiht
of the burning bridge passengers could be seen
jumping into the river.
Rejjef trains have been P*nt from Tcruel. the
capital of the province, seventy-two miles north
west of Valencia.
The victims were mostly gendarmes. In addi

many were injured.
Hill Much Worried Over the Demo
cratic Platform.
A regiment of detectives could hardly have
kept track of the conferences which Democratic
leavers from here, there and everywhere held in
this city yesterday. They centred around cx-
Benator David B. Hill, of Albany, who is at the
Hoffman House, Senator Arthur l'ue Gor
man, Democratic leader in Maryland, came to
this city yesterday, a3 did ex-Senator James
Smith, Jr., who leads the New-Jersey Demo
crats. John H. Btanchfleld, of Elmira, was here
engaged In legal business in the day, and in
conference with Senator Hill last evening. Cum
shoes and rubber boots were in continual use,
and every one seemed to have instructions to
say nothing, or next to nothing.
The presence of ex-Senator Smith and Senator
Gorman, both of whom will head doubtful dele
gations to the St. Louis convention, was the
cause of much scurrying about. Kx-Senator
Hill would give a good deal to get them Into
line for Judge Parker. It was said that Gorman
and Smith ha.d conferences with representatives
of both the Hill and Murphy factions, but
neither Hide made any claim to success.
Senator Gorman declared that the Maryland
delegation would decide on Its candidate in the
convention hall at St- Louis, and not before. He
said the earne thing when here last week. ./.
whose request yesterday's visit was made and
what its significance may be a great many Dem
ocrats would like to know. Only a few of the
many who called upon him at the Holland Hou.»«
were able to see him.
Kx-Senator Smith made the Waldorf bis head
quarters. He refused to discuss politics.
It was a busy day for the man from Albany.
It: the morning he had a stream of callers from :
the ranks of the Parker faithful. Senator Pat
rick 11. McCarren, William K. Sheehan and
lilliot Danforth were among them, it was .said
that Mr. Hill was not BO much worried about
Judge Parker's nomination as he was about the.
platform on which has candidate would have
to run. On Wednesday The Tribune explained
the probable tactics of Bryan and others op
posed to Parker, It is evident that they will
have a considerable shewing la the committee ,
on resolutions, and many think that concessions ■
will have to be mad*- to them. Hill will naake
a desperate fight for a conservative platform, i
and this visit, it is said, is to nail down sunn;
of the planks that are likely to be loose.
After conferring: with nil. Elliot Danf->it:i
!-ai<; that fudge Parker's friends were sure that
be would ' ■■- nominated, as i II over the country
New -York's choice was considered the choice of
[ the convention. The opposition to Judge Parker.
! Mr. Dan forth pointed out. was in Republican
I States, while the South was lor him.
John B. BtanchneW saw Mr. Hill last night.
He said, at the Hoffman House, that It was too
early to talk State politics, and smiled when ■
a:-;ked if he thought of running again for Gov
ernor. He refused to say anything about the
platform which would probably be adopted at .
! St. Louis beyond 'he statement that it would
! undoubtedly be conservative.
"Whom are ■•••- going tO yeli for at St. Louis?"
is the question that Tammany delegates to the
convention 'are asking every time they visit the
Tiger ( age In Fourteenth-si.
"So far no tip has been given out." said a
Tammany man yesterday, "and unless it come:?
you will wUn^ss a silent and solemn crowd of
iu:\c-. "VY"e an- good at yelling, and the rank

This ticket was presented 1W live suffrages of the American people
by the Republican National Convention which concluded its work in Chi
cago yesterday.
The nominations were unanimously made, and the proceedings were
marked by a spontaneity of enthusiasm and heartiness of sentiment that
augur the certainty of election.
The nominating speeches by ex -Governor Frank S. Black for the
President and by Senator Jonathan P. Dolliver for the Vice-President,
with the seconding speeches by Senators Bereridge, Depew, Foraker and
others, were received with every demonstration of approval.
When ex-Governor Black had named the President to succeed him
self the enthusiasm was unbounded and the tumult of applause could not
be stayed for twenty-three minutes by the clock.
The same exhibitions of delight marked the presentation of the name
of Senator Fairbanks for the second office in the #it't of the nation.
Secretary Cortelyou was unanimously chosen a.s chairman of the
National Committee, resigning as the head of the Department of Com
merce and Lahor immediately after his election.

beit perhaps too long, above the ordinary heard
In conventions. The great qualities of the Presi
dent, as recognized by the whole country, were
eloquently presented and met with enthusiastic
response. And through the warp und woof of
the whole rhtstf -leal and elocutionary fabric
ran one golden thread, which obviously attract
ed the instant attention and genuine enthu
siasm of the gathering. It was th» assertion,
reiterated and variously expressed, thai all
men, high or low, rich '<r poor. Macs or white,
must be permitted to enjoy everywhere all rh
rights which Instare In cttizrnship and must obe;
the law in till things, great and small ; that capi

in the law; that the ritfht of tudivl.lua! Übert]
involves the right of every man t>> work for a
uapp mutually agreed upon— a ri^ht which can
not oe tiiken from him. The highest tribute pai.l
to Roosevelt, the one which elicited the hpaitinst
response, was that he always recognised the
distinction between liberty and Itcenae, and that
ho never feared to enforce the law without re
pard to conditions and without reaped of r» ji
It was 11 o'clock when ex-Governor Black, In
closing his nominating speech, pronounced the
name of Theodore Roosevelt. Mr. Black's own
appearance on the platform had been received
with enthusiasm. Mis characteristic speech,
full of pungent epigrams Mid piths witticisms,
bad elicited frequent bursts of hearty applause,
and when he closed there burst forth a volume
of cheers which, like a great wave, swept
through the Coliseum, brought dignified men to
their feet, and for nearly half an hour could not
be stayed Wild with the fulness of their ■■■ ll
ments, men, and women, too, sought to give ex
pression to their feelings with cheers ami shouts
and whistle*. Flags were* waved, banners
flaunted and hats thrown in the air. On the
Stage "Uncle Joe" Cannon, waving the same flaK
which first led the cheering in the convention of
1860 at the moment Abraham Lincoln's time
was placed in nomination, led the charring.
Two little children, a boy from Alabama and a
girl from California, were carried to the stage
and raised- to the shoulders of convention offi

lead In the singing of "The Star Spangled Ban
ner." using silk flags as batons. They were un
successful. There was no cessation of the cheer
ing. An excellent crayon portrait of the Presi
dent was produced on the stage. T'nable to
satisfy their enthusiasm by cheering, the dele^
gates started to inarch. Representative James
S. Sherman led. followed by Governor Odell,
shouting like a Comanche Indian, and "Lou"
Payn was not far behind nor a trifle less de
monstrative. Next m line came New-Jersey, led
by Senator Pryden. his face wreathed In ■miles

ornamented with pictures of Roosevelt and
Fairbanks. Governor Herrlck almost slmulta
neouely wheeled into line at the head of the Ohio
delegation, while President Mellon of the New-
York, New- Haven and Hartford road gave an
imitation of a cakewalk at the head of the CaaV
necUcnt delegates, carrying silk lias?- Texas.
Alabama and Massachusetts, led by ex-Gov
ernor Crane, the delegates bearing umbrellas,
fell Into line. Alaska's six delegates, with their
now famous "tuffed eagles waving aloft and
shouting an AnttTmTl warwhoop. rushed to join
the procession.
After twenty-three minutes of continuous
cheering Speaker Cannon stepped to the front
of the stage and mad* vigorous efforts to bring
the convention to order. Finally he begun to
speak, regardless of the tumult, and only a de
sire to hear the chairman's remark* conquered
the desire to shout. The chairman told the story
of the flag he held, predicting that once more It
would prove prophetic of victory. His remarks
were followed by another outburst. Just as it
subsided Senator Bevertdge reached the plat
form, and again the vast audience broke forth, la
Senator Beveridge'S seconding speech was re
markably eloquent. eliciting 1 frequent and enthu
siastic applause. His voice, always under per
fect control, carried to the furthest ends of the
"One difference between our opponents and
ourselves Is that they select a candidate
for the people, and the people select a candidate
for us." began Mr. lieverldge. and from that
moment his audience was with him, Almost
ever) sentiment of the speech was tersely and
eloquently put, and promptly greeted with ap
plause Senator Beveridge spoke about twenty
minutes, and was enthusiastically cheered when
he closed.
Georgi A. Knight, of California, made the next
seconding speech, in a voice as clear as a bell,
well modulated, but powerful. In such grateful
contrast was Mr. Knight's delivery to some
<-aiiier speeches that he was greeted with cries
Of Too loud!" which raised such a laugh that
he was compelled momentarily to stop. One of
the most enthusiastic plaudits of the day's ses
sion iras given to Mr. Knight, wheat, in paying
a nigh tribute to RoussjiaH for his Justness and
firmness, be declared that socialism and an
archy and the disintegrating elements which
come here from other clime* could rind no rest
ins place in the United States. By the speeches
as well as the responses of the audience, it Was
made manifest that Theodore Roosevelt's great
est strength is in his fearless devotion to the
principles of liberty, and especially to the funda
mental principle, without which the solid fabric
of the Republic could not exist, that all men.
great and small, rich and poor, powerful and
weak, must receive enual treatment before the
law. His assertion that "the party needs Theo
dore Roosevelt more than hi needs the party"
met with hearty and loudly proclaimed response.
Be asserted that Theodore Roosevelt "hypno
tizes obstacles," and declared, referring SB the
course of the President in his relations with
Panama, thai ■ "the Democratic censors who
posed him have been laid quietly away in the
Democratic graveyard, to Bleep until time shall
be no more." a statement which drove the con
vent wild with joy. At the close of Mr.
