ODEH AND PLATT CONFER. ROOT TALKED OF AGAIN. | Wards Mission to Ex-Governor Black—The Visit to Oyster Bay. Governor Ode!!, accompanied by William Barnes, jr.. chairman of the executive committee of the Republican State Committee, reached the Oriental Hotel at Manhattan l>:ich. a little before 6 (/clock las: night, having rome from Oyster Bay where they hid spent the day with the President As soon as the Governor reached the note] he pjreetei! Senator Platt, but they did not take time then to ■ discus* the Governor's visit to the President Those who were widely heralding a controversy between Senator Plat! and Governor Odell yester day must have been greatly astonished last night. If there was any friction between the Governor i and toe Senator, It was carefully concealed. When | the Governor was asked about it, be laughed : genially and said that he "guessed the Colish sea j son was on." Senator Platt also laughed hearitly. : The Senator. Mrs. Plan. Governor Odell and Mr. ; Barnes dined together, and afterward wen! to see ; i .'iii 1 fireworks. They returned to the hotel after i Iha exhibition, and the Governor and the Senator ! were e&geged In earnest conversation for some I time. j Governor Odell declined to discuss his visit to the j President In detail. "1 talked over a great many j things with the President." he said, "but there It ■ nothing to say now. As for candidates on the State ticket, it is too early to discuss Individuals. Much . may happen in two months : think that It is just : as well to go slow for a while. I can say any- J thing further now " Senator Platt had nothing to say about political I matters. He seemed to agree with the Governor ! that it is not yet time to talk of candidates. It was said last night that no decision lias been reached by the leaders as to the best man to nomi nate. Just at present there are several names be ing riiscussed. While it la understood that Ellhu Root is no longer to ]>c considered a candidate, and that he has emphatically decline * to accept a nom ination, there are. revived reports that he might be Induced to make the run. Aside from this, there is talk of Frank B. Black. Mr Black. II i* under stood, has declined to accept a nomination, but it was said last night that he might be asked to re consider. William I. Ward, member of the national committee, and one of Mr. Black's closest personal Mends, Is now at Freedom, N. H.. with the ex- Governor, and It is reported that he la trying to pet Mr. Black to change his mind and accept a nomination. Timothy L. Woodruff, of Klnes. is In the field, and his friends are. making a right for him. It is said that Senator Platt does not regard Mr. Woodruffs candidacy with disfavor. Lieuten ant Governor }ligplns has many friends who are urging his nomination. Mayor ESrastua C. Knight of Buffalo is also being talked of for the nomina tion. While. Governor Odell had a long talk with the President and consulted with Senator Platt last nJght. It may be stated that things are still In an uncertain state. There is much work to dp done. and these conferences yesterday simply related to the preliminaries:. The Governor expects to be her* the greater part of the time from now until Ela tion Day. and It Is probable that within the next week or so he will gee the President again. He will also talk with Senator Platt and other leaders from various parts of the Btate. The problem of a State ticket will be solved in due tl ie and an agreement reached. ODELL SEES ROOSEVELT.

"We went over the political situation, particularly in our State. Naturally the President Is deeply inter ested in it. That Is about all there was to It " "It was resorted that you were coming here to discuss probable candidates for Governor," It was suggested. "Did you consider the question?" "We did not," the Governor responded emphati cally. "Republican policies and details of the ap proaching campaign were considered, but the names of candidates for Governor or for any other place on the ticket were not discussed. That was not the object of our talk. The President has made It known definitely that he will no; Interfere In the selection of candidates In Mew-York or In any other State. The. reports that he will name the candidate for Governor are not only untrue, but simply ridiculous. The convention will select the candidates, when the time shall come, and the President Is not attempting to dictate what th« convention shall do." "I am for the strongest man we can nominate.. Just now it is too early to discuss individuals. Before the convention 1b held some Warwick may arise and sweep the St;ite. a good many things may happen In politics in two months, you know. -Co, I have no candidate." Governor Odell expressed lively Interest In th^ news from St. Louis that the Democratic National Convention might omit from Its platform any definite statement of financial policy. "S ich ac tion." said he. "manifestly would be an exhibition of cowardice." The Governor said that the Republican Stats Convention would probably be held In 'he second week of September, but he Indicated no further ■plans for tho campaign A tea.M from the President's stables was sent to meet Governor Odell and Mr. Barnes on the ar rival of the 10:17 a. m. train, but as they did not come the coachman drove back home. When they did arrive on the 12:20 p. m. train the conveyance had not returned, and a messenger from Sagamore Hill escorted them to a livery surrey. Before start ing the Governor paused long enough to say that the stories which had appeared in some quarters purporting to give en account of a wrangle be tween Senator Platt and himself at Manhattan Beach were fabrications. Ten or fifteen minutes before the ■»:?) p. m. train left >:ere for New- York the Governor and Mr. Barne« drove ("own from Sng amoro Hill in the livery rirr. They boarded the train Alien It came. The Governor .said they wore going to Manhattan Beach, to attend a conference with Senator I'latt. The only other visitor at Sagamore Hill to-day was the Rev.

Platform Calling for Tariff Revision Adopted Without Discussion — Belmont Disgusted at Dropping of Gold Plank — Ilohson's Mistake. The Democratic convention in St. Louis last night received the names of Judge Alton B. Parker, William H. Hearst and Judge George Gray as candidates for the Democratic nomination for President. Immediately before Judge Parker was placed in nomination the con vention adopted the platform prepared by the committee on resolutions in a sixteen hours' all night session. It ignores the money question, and declares for tariff' revision. August Belmont, according to a personal friend, is disgusted at the absence of the gold plank from the platform, and will probably refuse to act as chairman of the national committee and chief money raiser for the Democratic campaign. The hall was crowded with as wild and unruly a mob as ever wit nessed a national political convention. Xo attempt was made to control the crowd that began to force its way into the Coliseum early in the even ing, and the wonder of all was that the meeting ended without a terrible accident. NIGHT SCENES IN THE CONVENTION. St. Louis, July B.— The Democratic National Convention to-night adopted .1 platform by a viva vn-p vote and listened to nominating speeches for President Judge Alton B. Parker was named by Mai tin W. Littleton and William Randolph Hearst by D. M Delmas. Both orators wera applauded at length. Anti-Parker delega tions tried to create enthusiasm for their can didate, but the Parker men remained undis turbed and unconcerned. Hearst delegates pa raded th« hnll. but the showing was email In comparison with the. Parker procession, which had preceded it. Nominating speeches for favorite son candi dates and seconding speeches for both Parker and Hearst occupied the convention for several hours. The convention Feats about ten thousand five hundred persons, but from appearances hundreds more had been admitted. The floor and lower and upper galleries contained thou sands of sweltering men and women, oblivious to the fact that the crowded condition of th» hall endangered every life. The crush of visitors around the door? and in side the convention hall at S o'clock, th* •|rr.e set for the opening of the convention, was greater than at any previous session It was something rarely paralleled at any national convention. Extra papers had spread the news over tho town that a nomination was to be expe.n-d to-night. and the crowd was greater than at any previous session. At two or three entrance.* the pressure on the doorkeepers and policemen was so great that the lines were broken, and many persons without tickets forced their way into the hull. It was a crowd that, from all npp*ir'in'fs, came with the full intention of participating In the proceedings, for cheers and comment were forthcoming on every occasion. It is doubtful if ever before In the United States were the rules governing admission to a large convention so utterly Ignored, considera tions for the safety of the public bo thrust aside, as they were at the convention to-night. The doors were practically thrown open to the pub lic, and by 8:30 o'clock the aisles «■»«■ packed so that no one could pass through them In either direction. In the gallery there was not an un occupied inch of standing or sitting room. The passageways under the building were completely choked by a pushing, struggling ma mi, with which the serjeants-at-arms and the poll •■ were utterly unable to cops. Several thousand people were packed underneath the main floor, vainly trying to gain admission to th" auditorium. The congestion here was highly dangerous In Itself, but still the crowd poured through the entrances and still no effort was made to keep It back. The first genuine reception nf the evening was given to ex-Senator Hill, of New-York, who made his first appearance in the hall. General Nelson A. Miles was also present for the first time. At 8 o'clock there was not a vacant seat in the vast auditorium. From platform to topmost gallery It was packed with delegates, alternates and spe. tafors. The heat was already Intense. On the outside ihe crowd was even greater than within the Coliseum. So far as the interest of the masses was concerned, to-night's session was what nil strove to witness. It had been rumored that the doors were to be thrown open to the public. This was uot true, but tickets sold so cheaply that they were within the means of ali. The only trouble was that the cheapest tickets were for sessions gone by. and the buyer took his own chances on getting by the door keepers. CROWDS BLOCK THE STREETS. Many of the. bogus ticket holders got in and others less fortunate blocked the entrances. The Streets on the four sides of the Coliseum were Impassable. Street cars got through with diffi culty and with danger to humanity. The police endeavored without effect to keep passageways dear. Nothing affected the pushing mob. Hun dreds passed through the doors who had no right to enter, and that served to work the throng Into a frenzy. L.ong after the hall was filleil the crowd pressed against the entrances, loath to give up the hope of getting in. Frequently half a dozen people would be al lowed to enter on a single ticket. There was no attempt made at many entrances to restrict the crowd In any way. and by the time the chairman called the convention to order the haiy was filled to the danger line and beyond. CONVENTION OPENED. A series of energetic thumps on the presiding officers table by Chairman Clark at 8:03 o'clock was accepted as calling the convention to order, and the reading clerk ordered the floor officers to clear the aisles. As Mr. Clark stood at the desk, Senator Daniel, of Virginia, chairman of the resolutions committee, made his way to Mr. Clark's 6ide with a copy of the platform In hl3 hand. "Without delay it was announced that the re port of the committee would be received. At this statement the convention seized the opportunity to vent its satisfaction at the unanimous report to be made. A great cry went up. Many dele gates .lumped to their feet and the first demon stration of the night session occurred. Becoming impatient at the delay. Senator Dan iel began his announcement !n the midst of the uproar. "1 am instructed to make to this convention," he said, "this unanimous report from the com mittee on resolutions." The Senator's persistence had the desired effect, though It was several minutes before the convention composed lueif, ar.d warning had to be given by the reading clerk that quiet must be preserved. Cries of "Louder:" were repeat edly made as Senator Daniel proceeded, for his voice was inadequate to the hall DANIEL'S VOICE DROWNED BY NOISE. A great hum of conversation and .in all per vading noise of shuffling feet, moving bodies and scraping chairs mingled to drown the Virgin ians voice. Powerful as it Is. he could not be heard ten rows of seats from the stand on which he stood. An Ohio delegate mounted his chair and, after repeatedly addressing; the chairman, demanded order. "All rlßhf Sit down and keep still and we will have order." retorted Mr. Clark. Then, turning to the clerk. h#» directed again that the aisles be cleared. Senator Daniel's exhaustion from his long ses sion with the resolutions committee was apapr ent. To the vast audience which faced him he was only a silent figure with moving !ipp. Ten minutes went by with the same d:"» order, the reading of the platform not being heard, when another interruption wa.<» made at the instance of Chairman Clnrk. at which order was demanded, but ineffectually. Disturbances resulting from cries for ord»r from various por tions of the hall exhausted the patience of Chairman <"I*rk and he gave personal directions to have several persons '-juleted or put out. Senator Daniel, however refused to he dis turbed. He proceeded with the reading of the platform regardless of the fact that not one soul in the hall, except, perhaps the stenog rapher, who .«too<i at the steps fust beneath him. heard a word. Senator Daniel concluded the readinr; of the platfon-n at 8:M o'clock. When It was observed that he had ceased reading, th* convention broks in'o cheers. Senator Daniel said "I am unanimously Instructed by your com mittee or. platform to move the previous ques tion 0:1 Its adoption, and I now mike that mo tion " The morion was adopted by a viva voce vote, two or three delegations voting In the negative, and they apparently in a spirit of fun. THE PLATTORM ADOIfTBIX Chairman Clark thor. put the motion to adopt the report, and another viva voco vote carried it. Representative Williams, of Mississippi, mount ed the pt.^ps leading to the platform, swung his h;*; round his head, and the delegates, follow ing hln lead, roared their applause again and again, whili- the band played "Hail, Columbia!" "The clerk win now call the roll of States for the nomination of n candidate fr>r President," shouted the chairman. A wild cry of delight came from th« galleries, who seemed to think the whole thing a show run for their entertainment. "Alabama!" shrieked the clerk. AI.AHAMA YIELDS TO NEW-YORK. ~~ "Alabama yields to the Empire State of New- York!" called Delegate Russell, standing In his chair, ore arm grasping the standard of his State marker. Martin W. T-ittleton, rtorough President of Brooklyn, of medium height and sturdy figure, with a full, clean shaven face and a heavy mass of dark brown hair tossed back from his brow and ears, took the stand, amid ringing applause, to place Chief Judge Parker, of New- York, in nomination. Mr. Littleton's manner ot speaking Is calm and deliberate, and he uses few gestures. His voice is full, resonant, and could be heard further than that of any speaker who had pre ceded him. with the possible exception of Rich mond P. Hobson. Mr. Littleton received close attention. For the first time in the session there was silence In the hall, and his voice suppressed the fiend in the gallery with his cry of "Louder!" There wore alternate cheers and outbursts of approv ing laughter as he spoke, few points being lost on his audience. A terrific outburst of cheering followed Mr. Littleton's remark about Judge Parker: "If you ask me why he has been silent, I answer because he has not attempted to be the master of his party, but is content to he its servant." LITTLETON ON PARKER. Mr. Littleton's speech wa3. In part, as fol lows: Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Convention: We do not expect hero that stupid peace which smells of chloroform. We do not wish that unctu ous unanimity which springs from tho unconnict lng emotions of a solitary man. We would not have our harmony In a single harness. We, too love the stir of a strenuous life; but we believe in equal strenuousness for all and upecial strenuous ness for none. We were Kent here by the people to select a candidate. We were not sent here by tlis candidate to notify tho people. Our adver saries, by -I welling tenderly on the simplicity of tha lamented MeKlnley. managed to endure for three days the strenuoslty of Roosevelt. By re counting In affectionate terms the achievements of tho one they evoked an enthusiasm which they immediately credited to the other. Through tears that were shed for the noble dead they saw a lurger outline of the living. Take away the tribute to the dead and all that Is left is a horseman on the slopes of San Juan. "LIFE FILLED WITH SPRAY OF BLOOD." There is much said by those who sit on cushioned chairs about cowards and weaklings In the na tion's life. The sun burned farmer is Just as brav<> as the star crowned soldier. The man of natural peace is hero a hundred times to where the man of artificial war Is hero once. Somehow of late the atmosphere of our rational life is filled with a spray of blood; somehow the march of progress sounds of hammered steel; somehow, although the Constitution is still in force, there Is a sense of ■The Tarleton Way." Delightful story of South ern life by William Uitht fn,.- Visschcr. In The Sunday Tribune to-morrow.— (^\dvt» failing power and growing disrespect which makes us feel that the venerable old man— so to speak— la halt arid blind with years, ami burdens the stren uous household of his grandchildren; somehow at times there runs a sort of sho right down to the foundations of this Republic which makes the structure tremble, and all the country pauses and listens and then returns to work; somehow, al though you cannot put your ringer on the cause, there is a universal fear. The toiler, turning all his time and sinew to gain which others g»t be gins to doubt th.it the government Is lust The man of mean*, who puts it out in the active cur renta of the tide, begins to feel that it is better hoarded than employed. REPUBLICANS CLAIM EVKRT FRUIT. The North and South, each wearing scars that tell of war almost forgiven and forgou< :i, feel the foar again that a problem which only time can settle right will be (Weed upon them wrong. Be hind these fears and doubts and startled dreams and vague misgivings is many a hidden cause. But over them Is >ne at least revealed. For Lincoln said, in the sadness of his great soul. "With malice toward none, with charity for .11. with faith in the right as God gives us the wisdom to see it." And Roosevelt said. hi the glory oS his self-con templation. "Tread softly and carry a b".g stick." And between these, the besinning' and UM end of Republican growth, in time and temper is ;l\ ! their wild, descending Might. With all ih-y know arid feel of the country's question of their course the Republican party yet claim every trult of soil' and ■an, of brain and soul. They say that by careful direction Qf scientific starch they added untold volumes to the store of common knowledge. They Bay that invention, under their control, nas lifted loads of labor from mankind. They point with pride to the churches all over the l:ind. Th>-v say that education was unpopular until they took It up, and that tiow almost every one is willing to bo educated. They say that, while population was increasing jome. thrr.- was never any steady, ad ; vancing, general increase until the Republican ; party came into rmwer. When attention is called j to the economic, industrial and administrative vices ; resulting from their incompeteney. they say that j after all. there are. son:" things which the all wise ; Providence insists upon doing without giving any | particular reason for It. "STRATEGY IS NOT A SIN." No man hero can have his exact way. No leader I can take us alone th* narrow ledg • of his unques i tioned logic. No section should swerve us from | the course that leads to union and fellowship. No faction can divide :;.s int.. weakened parts and leave us on the ti.'ld of battle in front of the enemy. No man is greater than his part', and no party i; greater than Its principles. There is no principle which does not real upon a condition. end there is no condition which ma) not change. There 15 no creed Bel down in black at.d white to which we are forever strapped, as to a corpse j There is no platform which can last forever, un t Jess ir be made of abstract things incapable of ; temorisrration.

PEACE IN NEW- YORK DELEGATION. 1 Th- State of New- York, hearkening to the demand ■ trom every quarter of the country, comes to you . unit.xj upon one who will bring peace into our council, patriotism and power into our campaign and success to our contest. I say New-York is united, and in saying 30 I deny th» charge that has , been spread broadcast over the country that there ' Is dissension. In the convention whose Instruction* ■ we delight to obey there, were two resolutions of ! fered, and each of these invited the country to ! consider the ntn:-s« and character of oar candidate i The first was: "The Democrats of New-York favor ; the nomination fcr President of ih» United States i of that distinguished Democrat and eminent Jurist ; Of our own State. Alton Brooks Parker; and the , delegates selected by this convention ar» hereby instructed to present and support such nomination : at the approaching national convention, and said , delegates are hereby further Instructed to vote and : act as a unit in all matters pertaining to said con : vention. in accordance with the will of the majority i of said delegates." And this wax adopted. Th"* : other resolution was: "Realizing that th» electoral ; votes of New-York are absolutely essential to Democratic success, we submit to our brethren ; throughout the country that Alton B. Parker a Democrat in the prime of life, has been elected hv a majority of over sixty thousand to the chief posf j tlon In th» judicial system of this State, and for ! £2J£ s! * years has discharged the duties of his ; high orfl>« with such unvarying dignity, shining I ability and scrupulous fidelity that if his t»rm wot to expire this year he would undoubtedly be chosen to succeed himself by the concurring votes of all his fellow citizens." NEVER FORSOOK STANDARDS OF PARTY. Therefor^ 1 repeat that this Is the- unanimous race Of New-york inviting the country to con ■ sider the fitness, ability and availability of our I candidate. The country, anxious to win in this j gre.it crisis. called upon New-York as the battle- I ground New-\..rk answers with a candidate «he carried the State by *.• majority. The country ! called upon New- York far the he S t f its brain and blood, and New-York answers with a m.m 1 who cut nil way through poverty and toll until ; he found t:,* highest peak of power and hone r in the State. The country called upon New-York for : .1 Democrat and New- York answers with a man ; wh> learsed the simple !es«..ns if Democratic faith 1 in the furrowed field, who took them with increas , ing strength to the ':..-( and finally honored them I by his exaited station on the bench— a man who. I throughout his < ;ire»r from poverty to power, ; never, In fair weather or foul. fc:ti>>k the stand i arda of his party faith or deserted the colors of his command.

We appeal to the South, Whose unclouded vision nnd iron courage saw and sought the wav for half a century: whose Jeff, rson awoke the dumb defiance of development int.. a voice that cried out to the world a curse upon the rule of kings and a blessing upon a new born republic: whose Madison translated the logic of events and the law of progress into the Con stitution of the country; whose Jackson reclaimed the lost places of the Far South and Democratise 1 the policies of the nation, and whose soldiers showed the wondering world the finest fruits of brain and nerve and heart that ripen In her tem perate skies: who. through all the sons she lost. and all the sons she saved and all the tears she shed amid the sorrowful ruins of war. and through all the patient loyalty and labor of after years, so wrought for human happiness that nil the world exclaim*. "Her greatness in pence Is greater than her valor In war." AFPFAI. TO THE SOUTH AND WEST. We appeal to you of the old South and the new to Join with us "in this contest of the supremacy of our party.

ACTION OF REPIBLICAN CONVENTION OX RACE QUESTION DEPRECATED. REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATION CRITICISED. TEXT OF THE PLATFORM. St. Louis. July &.— l3m fat *<>xt c' OH plat form as adopted by tha <-«inventlon to-night is as follows: The Democratic party of the United States, in nation.--! convention assembled. declares its de votion to the essential principles of the Demo cratic faith whirl brings us together in parry communion. Under them local self-government and na tional unity and prosperity wore alike estab lished. Th« underlaid our Independence ih» structure of our tree Republic and every Demo cratic extension from Louisiana to Califorr.a, and Texas to Oregon, which preserved faithfully In all the States* the tie between taxation and representation. They yet : spire masses or our people, guarding jealousy their rights and !ib eriies and cherishing their fraternity, peace aa-t orderly development. They remind us of our duties and responsibilities as citizens, and im press upon us. particularly at this time, the ne cessity of reform and th- rescue of the admin istration of government from the headstrong, arbitrary and spasmodic methods Thioh d I tract business by uncertainty and pervade the public mind wiTh dread, distrust and perturbation. FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES Fir«t— The application el These mental principles to the living: issues of the day is the first step toward the assured peace, safety and progress of our nation: Freedom of the press, of conscience and of speech; equality before the law of all citizens, right of a trial by jury: free dom of the person defended by the writ o? hat-ens corpus: liberty of personal contract un trammelled by sumptuary l*ws: supremacy of the civil over military authority: a we!! disci plined militia: the separation of church an I state; economy in expenditures; low taxes, that labor m.iv be ii^hr'y burdened: prompt and M cred fulfilment of public and private obligations: fidelity to treaties, pea ** and fri-nds.iip with ?.!1 nations, ertar.g'ij-i? alliances with none; absolute acquiescence in the trill of the majority, tin vital principle of republic Tr.^se are doctrine? which Democracy has established, approved by the mtior.. and they should be constantly In voked and enforced. CAPITAL AND LABOR We favor enactment and administration of laws srivingr labor and capital impartially th-ir just rights. Capital and lah.>r oueht not to be enemies. Cadi hi necessary to the other. Cad| has its tights, but the rights of labor are cer tainly no less "vested." m less **aacvedr and n;> less '"inalienable" than the rights of capital. CONSTITUTIONAL GUARANTEES. Constitutional guarantees are v:o!at-l when ever any citizen is denied the right to labor, a. - quire and t-njoy property or reside wi>«re Inter ests or inclination may determine. A;y denial thereof by individuals, organizations or gmcia* m°nts should be summarily rebuked and pun- Ished. T Ve deny the right of any ex-'Utive to disre gard or suspend any constitutional privilege or limitation. Obedience to the laws and respect for their requirements are alike the supremo duty of the citizen and the official. The military nrtould be use., only to sapper! and maintain the law. We unqualifiedly con demn its employment for the summary 'vanish ment of citizen"! without trial or for the control of elections. We approve the measure which passed the United States Senate In IflMl ut which a Re publican Congress has ever since refused to en act. relating to contempts in federal courts and providing for trial by Jury in cases of Indirect contempt. WATERWAYS. We f.ivor liberal appropriations for the Im provement of waterways of the. country- "When any waterway like the Mississippi River la of sufficient importance to demand special aid of the government such aid should be extended with a definite plan of continuous work until permanent Improvement is secured. We oppose the Republican policy of starving home development in order to feed the greed for conquest and the appetite for national "prestige" and display of strength. ECONOMY OF ADMINISTRATION. Large reductions can easily be made In tho annual expenditures of the government without Impairing the efficiency of any branch of the public service, and we shall Insist upon the strictest economy and frugality compatible with vigorous and efficient civil, military and naval administration as a right of the people too clear to be denied or withheld. First, we favor honesty in the public service. The enforcement of honesty in the public ser vice, and to that end a thorough legislative In vestigation of those executive departments of the government already known to teem with :orruptlon. as. well as other departments sus pected of harboring corruption, and the punish ment of ascertained corruption without fea:* >r favor or regard to persons. The persistent md deliberate refusal of both the Senate and House of Representatives to permit such In vestigation to be made demonstrates that only t>y a change in the executive and in the legis ative departments can complete exposures, pun* shment and correction be obtained. TRUSTS. We condemn the action of the Republican party In Congress In refusing to prohibit an executive department from entering Into con :ractß with convicted trusts or unlawful com binations in restraint of Interstate trade. Tv» relieve that one of the best methods of procur ng economy and honesty in the public service 3 to have public officials from one occupant of he White House down to the lowest of them ■eturn as nearly as may bo to Jeffersonian (Implicit}- of living. EXECUTIVE USURPATION. We favor the nomination and election of a President imbued with the principles of the Constitution, who will set his fa^-e sternly igainst executive usurpation of legislative and udiclal functions, whether that usurpation be ,-eiled under the guise of executive construction >? existing laws, or whether it take refuge In "Duplicity of an Angel."
