if There was not tho sllKh test jar in tho Con-
II ventlon. Its wheels moved as noiselessly and
I as prettily as tho machinory of a Corliss eneino.
Tho hand of Wm.L. Bcott of Erlo was at the
V loTor. IIo is an experienced machinist as veil
I as an accomplished oneineor. He porsonally
I oiled every Dart of the machine, and paid pnr-
tlculnr attention to hor exhaust plpo. No cc-
centrio slipped, and there were nohot journals.
If old Doun Blchmond could havo como to ltfo

he would havo boon lost in amazement. Tho
II national Democratic ship was steered by Scott
I I as easily and as safoly as e cr Dean Richmond

ll rook was avoldod, nnd there was no scraping

III Tho flcht in commlttoe over the tariff was re
Ul vumed last ovonlng. Theilery Wattorson was
il tamed by a proposition to endorse tho Mills
H bill Indopondontly of tho platform. Edward
J II Cooper alone protested against tho compro-
I II mise, nnd reiterated the protest on the floor of
j II tbo Convention. The truth is that the endorse-
,'H- - mont of tho Mills bill was a part of Scott's pro-
Nil gramme. He managed it so shrewdly that he
ill drew from tho North all that tho South wantod,
9H and from tho South all that the North wantod.
IBj Mountlmo he drow from both North and South
all that Scott wanted. He has pleased tho Ad-
jH ministration, he hns pleased the United Do-
Hj . mocraey. and seems to have pleased evorybody
H but the Bepublicap party. No leader ever did
H his work so quietly and unobtrusively. Ho
II bos laid tho foundation for an aggressive cam-
D paign. and there will bo hot work all alone tho
II It was another sweltering day even hottor
II than yesterday. The Convention met at about
II hall past 10. The hall, outsido of the space ro
ll served (or the delegates and alternates, was
II packed lone before this time. All the gilt oagles
II and festooned flags torn down in the Clevolund
furor of the day previous bad been restored to
I their places. Dan Dougherty's half-sucked
I lemon still lay on the Chairman's desk. Tho
I llfe-slzod figure of Orover in a lull-dross suit
I still stood in the door of the Capitol back of tho
rostrum, and tho equestrian portrait of
Washington at tho other ond of tho
hall still polntod the way to vlotory. The
Thurman feeling was rampant Hod hand
kerohiefs were as thick as tulips in an
old Dutch garden. Thoywere flying from the
guidons of most of the States. Now York, with
Its 72 votes, was showlngthe bandanna for tho
first time, and the Hooslers wero appalled. Tho
Gray men had been buoyed by choBt stories to
Ithe effeot that New York was against Thurman
on account of his ago. and that the delegation
was ready to accept tho Indiana candidate It
was oven asserted that Gray would havo writ
ten a letter declining tho nomination it ho had
not been assured of the vote of Now York. This
is why Dan Voorheos looked troubled when he
' saw Eoswell P. Flower, spokesman for tbo Now
J York delegation, upholding a Thurman banner.
' CoL Henry Wattorson presentod tho roport of
the Committee on Resolutions as soon as Gen.
Collins called the Convention to ordor. It v. ns
read by Clerk Fettit of tho House of lloprosou
tatives In a voice so clear, distinct, and power
ful that It roachod tbo ear of ovcryporson In
the Immense building. There was loud encor
ing when tbo resolution roadlrralnc the pint
form of 1884 was read, and volloyod scroams of
joy wero beard wbon the I'residont's mesingo
was declared the correct interpretation of that
platform as tho basis of tariff reform.
As Clork Pottit descended from the tablo on
Which he had been standing. Col. Wutterson
again appeared boforo the Conontlon. IIo
showed the efTects of tho long struggle His
eyes seemod moro sunkon than oor. Thoy
were shaded by his bushy oyobrows and by tho
cowllok of hair that foil over his forehond. His
speech was short and decisho. Every word
and each sontence wero measured. IIo closed
by saying: "Two good Democrats can never
know each othor thoroughly until they lmo
had some fun with each other." Hero bo turn
od and beckoned to Mr. Gorman, who had
locked horns with him on the commlttoo, say
ing, sotto voice, " Como 1 Ight down," and elosod
the llnal sontenco of his sjioech thus: "And this
furnishes a reason why I should present to
you Senator Gorman." The Maryland Sonitor
had spoken only a few minutes when a muflled
. cry of Are enmo from under one of thogal-
M J lerles. It was not loud enough to bo heard In
if all parts of the building or It might hno
created a panic As It was, only a fow ladles
W VI in tho gallery, on tho right of tho platform,
jjrL. showed any alarm. Their fenrs vn-ro relieved
T' , by Mr. Bcott, who shouted "All right: theio
is no danger." It was a fa!te nlurm,
Those packed undor the galleries took nd

tho seats reserved for alternates, many of
which were ompty. The police stopped tho
leaping ovor tho barrier, and order was quietly

K Watterson moved for tho adoption of thoplat-

U Ills demand was can led and tho platform was
I adopted without a (lUsoMing 0I0e, It was
magical. The measure over which the most
Y trouble bad been anticipated was put through
' la Just thirty seconds. Mr. Bcott then offered
tho resolution endorsing tho Mills bill, to which
the commlttco had glon Its assent. It wns
slapped through the Comontlon In twenty sec

than was shown when Dan Voorheos presented
tho namo of Judgo Gray of Indiana not
long afterward. Nrnor was tho Tnll
Scnmoro of tho Wabash In bolter volco
nnd humor. Ho had nonod hlinolf to a hopo
lcstask, unit ho purformed it with mnnellous
ability. Ho imnlurod, reasoned, and threat
ened on behalf of his friend Gray. With his
hnnd on his hip ho w.irnod tho Democracy of
eertuln dlnaster without tho oto of Indian 1.
Ho called her tho national battling ground and
recounted her sorUoes Iu the past. No success
ful Democratic oandldato for tho Presidency,
' Fines tho formation of tho Republican party,
had boenolccted without thooto of Indiana.
She camo before tho Convention tendorlng the
nomination of Gray in on hnnd, und sure 'vic
tory In the othor. Ills speech started a whirl
wind of enthusiasm among Gray's friends, but
it quickly passed away.
The nomination was soconded bv a Georgian
with black hall, blue ees, and a shrill volco.
He hid gestures so giiunt that at times you
could fancy him a sailor yanking In a ropo.
Mr. Ixins of Kentucky nlso spoke on behalf of
Grny'snominallrn. Ho said that ho represent
ed tho great "unwashed nnd unterriflnd De
mocracy of tho bomb." Tho othor evening, ho
stood at tho gato of his little lottngo iu hon
tucky. Ho looked to the north nnd snw tho
bluo hills of tho groat Democratic State of
Indiana. He saw tho kiikjUo arising from a
thousand cump llrss, and hn know that tho
Domoeracy wero at work, 'lhen ho told of
past cnmpnlgns In which the had won vic
tory, nnd clo-ed by nn earnest appeal for Gray.
Thurman's nomination was seconded by Mr.
PIggott of Connecticut, Mr. Drs don of Missouri,
Go. Green of New Jersoi, Mr. Dorsoy of Ne
vada. Goorgo Itnlnos of New ork, Mr. Howell
of Ohio, dipt Dawson of South Cnrolinn, Gov.
i nroekraorton 01 Toxas, ana ronntor uaniei ot
Virginia. The best spooch of tho lot wns a
short ono by Gov. Green. His reference to tho
remarks of Senator Voorheos was csieclnlly
happy. Tho Governor called attention to the
fact that New Jersey was another grent battlo
ground. Sho bad not only uist lur vote for
every Democratic Presidential enndldnto who
had boon oloetod, but sho had voted, also, for
all wl o had been defeated, hho brought horo
U-dnv hor nine electoral votes in ono hHnd, and
no demands In another. The Governor was
wildly cheered ns he descended from tho plat
form. A stirring speech was that delivered bv Mr.
Drydennf Missouri 1th efTcct. however, was
almost do-,trojod by nn amusing incldnnt.
After depleting Thurmnn's labors in behalf of
tho Demociacy ho began n snntenco by saving
thut " rest and retirement would undoubtedly
bo very grateful to him." Defore ho could com
plete the henteneo a hoavv-volced Gray mi n in
tho gnllories shouted: " Well. then, whv don't
you give them to him?" This ictort floored
Mr. Drvden.
Another nuiint orator was Gov. Dorsey of
Nevada. When bo paid that "thosilvor libsof
the mountains of Nevada would fairly rovel
with joy over tho nomination of 'Ihunuan" tho
Convtntion went into ecstasy. Tho ecstasy
ran Into amusement when Dorsoy described
California as " lu Ing her head upon thn goldon
dopo-lth of the continent and Living hor feet
In the lucid waters of tho placid and pellucid
Pacific." "Glvo us Thurman." shouted Dor
sey. "and tho stumps of a thouind quart?,
mills will pound out ponderous nprlnuso."
Here a gontlemun in tho gailorv suggested
that tho gentleman talk to tho ladies u while,
and Mr Dona subsided.
Goorge llninns was very eloquent In bis
oflorts on behalf of Thurman. His quotations
and citations wore mainly from the liihle, end
htsthougnts woro so classically moulded that
they attracted more uttontlou than applause.
Equallv elTectlvo as a speaker was Senator
John W. Daniel of Virginia He has bushy
black hair und a ltomnn east of features, aud a
volco to avvo and command. His volco broke
beforo ho elosod. but his sentences were mag
nificently worded and his peroration was un
usually brllll int.
Amid tho utmost silence tho voto was taken
by States. Arkansas, California, Connecticut,
1'lorlda. Iowa. Louslnnu, Maine, Maryland,
Mississippi, Nevada, Now Hampshire, Now
Jorsey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio,
Oregon, Ponnsslvanla, llhode Island, Ton
nosBOO, and Wisconsin voted solid lor Tliur
mnn. Long boforo the roll call wns completed it
was evident that Thurman vvus nnmlnutod.
Ten thousand persons wero on their feot
shouting, cheering aud waving flags nnd bun
rinnnas. Five hundred tin whlsles wero blown.
Tho guidons of Indiana and Colorado woro
brought to tho desk, driped in Thurman
colors. Colorudo had voted solid for lilack
nnd Indiana solid for Gray. Tho upioar
lastod ten minutes. Then a gentleman from
Colorado moved that Thurmnn's nondnntlon
bo mado by acclamation. This was seconded
by Mr. Shanklln of Indiana, und the motion
wont through with a wild whoop.
Thus closed tho proceedings of tho slxtoenth

The Democratic party welcome an exacting scrutiny
of the adlninlstralloa of the executive power, w hlcti four
years ago was committed to its trusts in the election of
Grover Clev eland as President of tho United Mates, but
It challenges the most ssarching lnqulrv concerning Ita
fidelity and devotion to the pledges which than Invited
the suffrages of the people. During a most critical
period of our financial affairs, resulting from over taxa
tion, the anomalous condition of our currency, and a
publlo debt unmatured, it has. by the adoption of a wise
and conservative course, not only averted disaster, but
greatly promoted the prosperity of the people.
It has reversed the improvident and unwise policy of
the llepubtlean partr touching the nubile domain, and
has reclaimed from corporations and syndicates, alien
and domestic, and restored to the people nearly one
hundred millions of acres ot valuable land, to be sacred
ly held as homesteads for our citizens.
While carefuUy guarding the interest of the taxpayer
and conforming strlctl) to the principles of justice aud
equit), it has paid out more for pensions and bounties to
the soldiers and sailors ot the republic than was ever
paid before during an equal period.
It has adopted and connstentlr pursued a firm and
prudent foreign policy, preserving peace w ith a'l nations
while scrupulously maiutauting all the rights and Inter
ests of our own Ooverntnent and people at home and
abroad The exclusion from our shores of Chinese la
borers has been effectually secured under tho provision
of a treaty, the operation of which has been postponed
by tho action of a Republican majority In the benate
Honest reform in the civil service has been luaugn

Uon of public allalrs
In every branch and department of the Government
under Democratic control the rigtits and the welfare of
aU the people have been guarded and defended every
public interest has been protected, and the equality of
all our citizens berore the law, without regard to race or
color, has been steadfastly maintained.
Upon its record thus exhibited, and upon the pledge of
a continuance to the people of the benefits of Deinoc
racy, tile Democracy invoko a renewal of popular trust
by the reelection of a Chief Magistrate who has been
faithful, able, and prudent. We Invoke In addiUon to
that trust b) the transfer also to the Democracy of
the entire legislative power.
The Republican party, controlling the Senate and re
sisting In both houses of Congreta a reformation of un
just and unequal tax laws, which have outlasted tho
necessities ot war and are now undermlniug the ahun
dance or a long peace, deny to the people equaht) beforo
the law and the fairness and the justice which are their
right. Then the cry of American labor for a better
share la the rewards of iudustry is slided with false
pretences, enterprise is fettered and bound down to
home markets, capital is discouraged with doubt, and
unequal, unjust laws can neither be properly amended
nor repealed. The Democratic arty will continue with
all the power confided to it the struggle to reform these
laws in accordance with the pledges ot Us last platform,
endorsed at the ballot box by the suffrages ofthepeopte
Of all the industrious freemen of our land, tho lin
tnense majority, including every tiller of the soil, gain
110 advantage from excessive tax laws, but the price of
nearly everything they buy Is Increased by the favorit
ism of an unequal system of tax legislation All unnec
essary taxatlan Is uniust taxation It is repugnant to
the creed of Democracy that bv such taxation the tost
of the nece.sarles of life should be unjustifiably in
creased to all our people Judged by Democratic prln
ciples, the Interests of the people are betrayed when, by
unnecessary taxation, trusts and combinations are
permitted to exist which, while unduly enriching tho
few that combine, rob the body of our citizens bv de
priving them of the benefits of naturalcompelllion.
I.very Democratic rule of governmental action is vlo
lated when through unnccesxary taxation, a vast sum
of inoury, far b.yond the needs of an economical ad
ministration, is draw n from the people and the chaunels
of trade, and accumulated as a demoralizing surplus in
the national Treafury. The muncy now lying idle in
the federal Treasury, resul'ing from superlluous taxa
lion, amounts to moro than one hundred an 1 twenty
live ml lions, and the surplus collected is reaching the
sum of more than slxti millions annually. Debauched by
this immense temptation, the rimedy of the Kepub lean
party is to meet and exhaust by extravagant appropria
tion and expenes. whether constitutional or not, the at
cumulation of extravagant taxation The Democratio
policy is to enforce frugality In publlo expense aud
abolish unnecessary taxation Our established domes
tic Industries nnd enterprises should unt and need not
be endangered by the reduction and correction of the
burdens of taxation On the contrary, a fair and care
ful revision of our tax laws, with duo allowanie for tho
difference betweeu the wages of Amerlcau and foreign
labor, mubt promote and encourage ev,ry branch of
such Industries, and enterprises, by giving them assur.
ance of an extended market an I steady and continuous
operations. 111 me interests or An encan labor, which
should In no event be neglected, the revision of our tax
laws contemplated by the Democratic party should pro
mote the udvunluge of such labor, by cheapening tho
cost of necessaries of life in the home of every worMug
man. and at the same lime securing to him steady and
remunerative eniplo) rnent
Upon this question of tariff reform, soclosdv concern

Mr. Wattorson brought a roar of approval '
about his oars when ho said "Thanks to Grover
Cleveland the nttontlon of this country, wooed 1
by others so long in vain, is fixed at last upon
tho rcmody of real instoad of Imaginary evils,"
and ho provoked loud rolls when In closing,
he introduced his opponent in tho construction
of tho platform, Bonator A, P. Gorman.
The subtlo Senator, clcan-shavon like apriost,
and looking not a little unliko one of thoso
heroes our country immortalizes upon its post
age stamps, fumbled upon Mr, Colltns'sdesk for
tho lemon ho had brought with him, and then
began a not at all notable -poech In hlgh-koycd
tones, proceeding wholly from his head. One
tiling that Mr. Gorman said ospeoially pleasod
tho Convention. It was this: We are hotter
organized, moro united, and a great deal moro
cortaluof victory than in 1881." He Bpoke as
Mr President, gentlemen of the Convention, and
Democrats all! I would be out of place were 1 found

under the lead of Orover t leveland. Cheers and cries
ot "Louder" sour years aco, at Chicago, the Demo
cratic party, restating its declaration of principles,
promised that. If entrusted with power, sectionalism
slioulriibe wiped out forever, that the finances of your
Ooverntnent should be so controlled and Its tariff dl
rected not to Impair the brilliant Industries of the land,
but that extravagant expenditures should be reduced
until we should have a (love rument economically ad
ministered, and that the war taxes placed upon
us bv tho Republican party should be reduced
according to the requirements or the clorerninent.
Lpon the declaration ot principles thus made at Chi
cago we went before the people, and the result was the
election of Urover Cleveland In the matter of the re.
dttctlon of taxation be has been thus honest and
earnest and with a desire to carry out to the letter the
promises of his party, sad when be declared that we
were now to fade tha fart of the reduction of taxation
and wipe out this hundred million of suretns. it was no
longer a quesUon nor could It be controlled by clap-tran
phra.es or the opposition charring us with free trado or
Kroteetlon rather, nut that we stood as honest men as
onest reformer, to reduce thl. immense taxation
one hundred millions per annnm Differ as you
will about the phrases, we hare preprinted a
platform lu strict aocord with all the Democratio
declarations that hve preceded us As Mr. Wat
teroon has well sal , it is a ptalform upon
whl h every Democrat In this broad land can stand
Applause 1 And IL in the discussion of the great que.
tit u w here local interena play so sharp a p.rt, there Is
dunug the campaign aud during future campaigns soma
difference, there will be the same spirit nf toleration
We will hold every Democrat to the cardinal prlnclp ea
of the party, but we win give him liberty ot conscience
and action nn essentials With such a declaration and
such a candidate we will go forth to battle against a
party whlah is ysywell organized, holding advantage of
position of criticising without making themselves re
sponsible for any particular measure We will not un
derrate them, but 1 say to you. with an epportunlty that

Mr. Gorman suffered nn unfortunate Inter
ruption in tho very heart of his address. It
was ono that lent a moment of great uneasi
ness to all within tho building. Over on the
north shlo, in tho seats behind tho delegates,
suddonlv arose nn uproar so discordant that
the muflled sound of it through tho vast build
ing and tho accompanying stampede of the
men in tnut quarter from their bents to huty
concealment under tho gallery, notified every
ono that something extraordinary was taking
place. A thild of the multitude fancied It was
lire : two-thlrdh that It was n light Policemen
in their St. Louis blouses and broad gruy cav- i
airy hats rushed to tho spot from every direc
tion, and in a moment thoso v-ho had left their
seats Wero teun to be olumhorlnc back into
them ngtin 'io this moment, so great is the
building aud so densely was It packed, not two
fifths of all who wore within its walls yet un
derstand what occasioned tho excitement The
Hon James Kivo Points Oliver had gono to
the thick of the disturbance and cameuaek to
tell the Now York reporters It was nothing.
"One giloot stepped on nnothor one and got
punched, it was porfoctly proper. It would
be nn unfortunate thing for a sound Demo
crntlo ticket If the Convention that nominated
it thotild brenl up without a light."
Henry Wattorson, still on tho platform and
standing guard over tho product of his com
mittee like a Mintluel on duty, now moved the
previous question on tho adoption of tho plat
lorm. "All In favor will say Ave," roared Patrick
One mighty, universal Ayo." All opposod

Alpsoluto silence, followed by a volloy of
"Gontlemen," said the bluo grass editor.
" the l'latfoim Committoe l.ns approved and
reported and requo-tted to be passed without
illsiMiHsinn thno resolutions. The llrstis by

Mr. bcott at once advanced, blonde, spnre,
sorlous, and with an air of cniolnssconlldouco,
and said that he was directed to present this
resolution, nnd asked tho Convention's ap
proval of tho same:
Y'zoftva, That thl Convention hereby endorses and
recomtnei dsth. tarly pas.age iittlie bill far the reduc

resentutlves. llefoi o tho rending of It wns finished, nnd as
soon as it wis miou that It was nn endoisement
of the -Mills bill, the Convention burst Into
encoring. Tho motion for its ntloptlon was
carried with a rout, nnd there woro not any
"Noes" against It. Thoconduot of the Con
vention showed that there must have been ap
prehension that some one would oppose tho
resolution, because all listened, nnd when It
wns discovered that the call for disapproving
voices met with no response, the Convention
mutinied its pluas ira by rising to Its feet nnd
making tho air brlstlo with evory portable
tiling that uver man carried. It whs a momen
