tho New Vork delegation had held a meeting

lathe tali. The concensus ot opinion was that
ihoro was not anything else (or the delegation
to do. Even silver men said that.
The first boom on hand was that of the Bon,
eilrcr Dick Bland. It came tn headed by a
brats band and arm.ed.wUb, portraits of Silver
Dick, and it tola decidedly chilly reoeptlon.
, The Holes boom came next, and Its reception was
even chillier than that accorded to the Missouri
man's. The boom of the Hon. Joseph Blackburn
came In quietly in the hands of small boys.

The boomers of the Hoy Orator ot the I'lntte,
Mr, Ilryan, tried to stem the tide by trotting
out the picture of their champion, but Instead
of doing It, It set all tho friends of Dryan scream

" Illand will carry Missouri by 100,000."
Another said: "Illand Is enough of a plat
form." Then block umbrellas with yellow letters
appeared, and after them a huge silk stiver
dollar. The demonstration had been going on
twelve minutes when an effort was made to re
storo order.
The Chairman knocked nhole Id his table
with s, meat axe mallet. It was Just sixteen
minutes when order was restored. Some enthu
siast tried to start the demonstration over
again, but the responso was a hiss from every
where that sounded like a half dozen locomo
tives lot'tlng off steam,
David Overmtyer at Kansas followed Senator
Vest and seoondedtho nomination "of tho Illus
trious patriot and statesman. Silver Dlok
liland." The cheers that greeted him were
again drowned out by hisses. Ovarmeyer made
a hit deolaring that the money that was used to
pay George Washington for saving hts country
was good enough to pay Holnelbaoh, Ichel
helmer, or anybody olso who was tha oountry's
" lie's a man who works In tha field with bis
own hands." declared the Kansas seconder.
" He tills the soil, be mows the grass, and he
cuts the corn, lie makes his living wllh his
own hand and by the sweat of his brow."
J. H. Williams of Illinois followed the Kan
sas man, and he also neconded " Silver Dick's"
nomination. Mr. Williams was one of these
nion who crop up at every Convention.
They hldo tho name of their candidates
until they get through talking and then
take tho crowd into their confidence.
IU talked of "our cause," referring
of course to sliver. "Nominate Bland," he said
at lost, "and no man wilt ask how long ho has
been a Democrat or how he has stood on the
sliver question. Nominate him," he went on,
"and 400,000,000 of silver dollars will rlso up
and appeal for hts election. Tho silver waves
of poDular approval will sweep him Into office."
This finished up the Bland nominating speech
es. The roll call was resumed. When Geor
gia was reached II. T. Lewis, one of the dele
gates at large, was Introduced. Ha wanted
to nomlnato a man whose publlo life
public service demanded reward, and ha
named William Jennings Bryant, the Boy
Orator ot tho Platte, and the rumpus
that had followed the second mention of Bland's
name was resumed. The official band was
promptly at work helping It along. The silver
banner of the Boy Orator was paraded around.
Ahead of It marched a man wllh the Georgia
sign. Just behind It came both Carollnaa.
Iulslana, and then Michigan. They fell In
one after the other, and the nheerlng and howl
ing was doubled and trebled as each one took
Its place. They paraded all around the ball
The banner made a second trip and South
Dakota Joined tbe crowd, and a moment later
Mississippi's banner appeared, and the half dos
en Scanner bearers gathered In tbe centre of tbe
delegates' quarters while tho crowd whooped It
UDlnasonl-stlrrlng way. The Chairman tried
to check their demonstration In six minutes
and bo only made It worse.
An enthusiastic boomer got possession of tha
bass drum of tha official band and thumped It.
Tho crowd began stamping, and the noise was
like the roar of thunder. The Chairman and
Sergeant-at-Arrae Martin yelled order until
they ware blue In the face. Another hole was
pounded in tho table on the platform. At last
tbe banner-bearers returned to their seats, but
that did not stop the clatter and bang and
At the end of about ten minutes of yelling,
tbe hissing that had wound up the Blond de
monstration was resumed and It brought o sem
blance of quiet, and Theodora Klutx of Salis
bury, N. C, took tbe opportunity to second the
nomination, of the boy oritor. George i Will,
iams.the Massachusetts Slugwump.who Is a(rald
now that he is come out for free silver he won't
get any more Invitations to S o'clock teas, also
seconded tho nomination of Bryan at tho re
quest of Oeorgla, ho said. Tho country needed
a young man, he said, a man of nnf ailing vigor
Inadespemto contest. It needed no Napoleon,
and the howling was resumed. Mr. Williams
paid no attention to It, and went on and finished
his speech.
Thomas J. Tlernnu followed tbe Massachu
setts man with another second (or Bryan. lis
got the crowd with him by declaring that the
Convention had refused to worship tbe golden
calf that England had sot up. This, he said,
was not a lovolutlon. but was a restoration.
Silver should bavo bar own.
At the end of the speech the crowd howled
for nryan. Just os If they expected the boy oro
tor to Jump up and second his own nomination,
lie did not do it, but LouUiana seat up another
man to second Bryan's name. Ho called on tho
golden rys of tho sotting sun, and a man In tho
audience howled " t'ollce."
Idaho and Illinois passeJ. and on tho rail of
Indiana Senator Turplo got up to present Gov.
Claude Matthews. Mr. Turple had a weak
voice, and the crowd yelled "louder." He did
tho best ho could, but he couldn't make hlmsolf
heard beyond tho platform and tho front seats.
He wanted Matthews nominated because ho
was the only man who couldcarryNowVork.New

Turple labored under was augmented by the
shooting off of nroworks outside the halh

It was pretty tlresomo for 1 urple, but ho kept

He could bo feon gesticulating, but not one

continued the confusion grew worse. It kept

Boles had a broad mind and fitted the situation
thereforo he was tho logtoal candidate. He
was never sensational, and to Ills everlasting
honor It must be said that in doing things he
novor failed to make an Impression. Tho
speaker said there would not be any fire
works It Boles was named and etocted. but his
term would bo marked throughout by tnvigor
inc. common sense. Hold ntood on tho Con
stitution of his country on the financial uues
tlon, and that domanded gold and tlhcr, not
gold or silver.
White had gone beyond his nllnted .10 min
utes and the crowd Informed him so. He quit
in a couple of minutes, declaring that It Boles
was nominated the fictitious Napoleon would
meet his Waterloo at Waterloo as hard as tho
real one. Tho moment he finished the shrill
shrieks of a woman were heard In the cost ot
tho hall. She was dressed In whlto and she was
"Boles I Bolts I Boies!"
The woman stood In her chair. Bho was snp
ported on either side by women. Every time
oho said "Boles" hor arm shot out and up. In
one hand sho had a flag. Somebody put n flag
lu her other hand. She waved both with
tbe enthusiasm of a Salvation Army girl saving
a soul. The crowd took up her cry. The dele
gates Jumped up In their seats and oheered her.
Tho head of the Iowa delegation ms.de his way
to her with a silk banner having Boles's picture
on It, and she dropped the flags and took thaL
The cheering was redoubled, but above It
could bo heard h.r shrill shriek of "Boies,
Boles, Boles," In regular time. Buck and forth
the banner waved for three or four minutes.
Then the man whnhsdbroughtlttohergrabbed
her about tub waist, and still holding the banner
ho led her down from the gallery and out on
the floor of the Convention. There was no lot
up in the cheers. The pair made their way to
tho Iowa delegation, where oho was fairly
hugged. She kept close grip of the banner.
A Michigan man grabbed the banner ot his
Stato and made his way up beside her. Thau
the three marched around tho room. The woman
was Miss Minnie Murray of Nashua, la, Una
of the women who had aided her when she
started tha demonstration was Mrs. J. A. Dallon
of Lansing, la., who Is tbe adltor of a newspaper.
Tba demonstration continued fifteen minutes,
the Chairman making frantic efforts to stop it,
but he could not do It. Ho called on tho bands
to help him. Tbe longer it lasted tho happier
grew the face of Miss Murray. She was fairly
dancing wllh Joy.
It was at the end of eighteen minutes that
Miss Murray was led back to her seat looking
as fresh as when she started, and quiet was re
stored. A. T. Smith seconded tho nomination
of Boles, and railed him the grand old Com
moner of the Waoash.
Kansas had no candidate. When Kentucky
was called, the chairman of tho delegation.
Jumping up on his chair, shouted:
"Mr. Chairman, the delegation of Kentucky
has selected the Hon. John S. Rhea to present
tbe name of the Sauth's greatest Democrat
Joe Blackburn."
The quality ot tbe oratory ot Mr. llhra was
Al. He was the beat speaker of tbe evening,
and tho crowd enjoyed it and yelled "Hooray
for Joe Blackburn 1" at every punctuation mark.
When he had finished the band began playing
"The Old Kentucky Home," uud the whooplug
was ronewed.
But it was nearly midnight, the people were
tired, and the Chairman got order quickly.
Blackburn's nomination was seconded by W. W.
Footo of California, who announced that Cali
fornia would have been for Senator White, but
that gentleman had commanded that his name
should not be presented. Footo took a crack at
tbe Iowa women.
"Joe Blackburn." he said, "is not puraded by
any Joan of Arc. it is true."
He didn't finish what he was cuing to say. for
the crowd stopped hiru with boute of laughter.

cheers. The Pennsylvania delegation Jumped
up. and there were cries of "Thal'sltl that'slt!',
When order was restored and Now Vork was
railed. Senator Hill announced that New York
bad no candidate. Ho said nothing abont tho
platform. The crowd began veiling "Hill,

again threatened to clear tho hall, and order
was restored.
Ohio responded to her name by sending up
A.W. Patrick to nominate John It. Mt'Leon, one
of the most magnlflrent characters that gracei
Ohio, Mr. Patrick said.
Mr. Patrick said that ilio Cincinnati 7-,'ninJirrr

Chicago, July D. When the New Yorkdolega
tlon entered the Convention Hall this morning
they wero agreed, but without any formal ac
tion, upon tho courso which they decided on
two das ago. vnd no nhange took place In it
during tho day.
This programme- consisted lu remaining In
tholr seats aud refusing to bolt, but to let their
vote against the platform be thoir last partici
pation tu Hits proceedings, boyond such verbal
explanation uf their position as It might bu
necessary to make.
Tliu goneral sentiment of the dologatlon was
strongly tn favor ot this course, which was
recommended by Sonator Hill, although a good
many members would personally have pro
feired a bolt to-ulght, and declared thut
they would not support thu ticket at
tho polls. Wilson S. Blssoll of Buffalo
wont homo yesterday, saying that ho had hud
enough of this Convention aud should refuse to
accept Its ulutform aud candidates. This after
noun Corporation Counsel Francis M. bcott of
New Vork also went home. He said that he was
compelled to leavo on business, but ho waa
frank enough to say that he should havo left
the Convention any how and would refuse to
support the ticket.
Thu alternntct for thoso two delegates wero
on hand to tuko their places, but their absence
would havo in ad a no dlfforenco lu any event, a
the delegation Is governed by the unit rule, uud
lis course was as satisfactory lo .Mr. Scott auu
Mr. Blssoll as to Porry Belmont, Dolaucov Nic
oil, Hugh J. Uraul. Oeorge McClellau. John It.
Fellows, Frederio It. Couderl, uud o good many
As the session of tho Couventlon progressed
to-day the New Vork dcltgatcs who were tn
favor of a bolt from the start became mora and
mora Incensed, as Mr. Wliltnoy told them
yesterday they would bu. When tho
platfurm was adopted and was found
to contain many other principles of tho
Populists besides freo alitor, including
tha Populist Incomo tax, the feeling Increased,
and It rose to a still higher pitch when Senator
Tillman uf South Carolina made his
speech defying the Eastern delegates and
declaring that ha would like to see
them leave. These two things mode uvan
more bitter to tho gold men the medicine ad
mlulslerrd by the platform. Nevertheless tho
delegates agreed wllh ex-Uov. Flower when he
said that anything doslred by Tillmau should
bo tbe last thing for them to do.
When tho Contention took a recess until a in I
the evening. It was auuuuucod ibat the Nt
Yorkers would hold another meeting and de
cido formally and by vole what their attitude
should be when tho balloting began. This
mooting was held at the Washington Park
Club, and after it was over the delegates dined
there, bnfore returning tu Uie Couveutlon Hall.
Nearly every delegate. Including ihe alteruates
who had tilled the vacancies, was present at the
mealing, which lasted an hour and a half.
Senator Hill, who has been too busily eugagvd
otherwise to attend auy of tho former moet
'"TT. HI 'h"" ond-tnado the opening speech.
The chief reason that the delegation lias not
heretofore regularly adopted the plan which un
doubtedly had the support ot a large majority,
was that ll was desired lo have Sonator Hill
pirsent bofore final action.
In his speech to the delegation to-day Senator
Hill urged the adoption of the plan already lit
formally agreed upon. Though mauy, and per
haps nearly all. of the delegates would prefer
personally to leave the Couventlon, It wan a
question whether they had the right to do so,
and by so doing commit the Slate of New York.
It was belter thai they should sluy throuirh
the Convention, aud roport to the constitu
ents Hereafter.
Kx-iov. Flower ond I)e I.ancry Nlcoll again
said that they would not support the platfurm
which had Just been adopted. Mr. Nlcoll was
still In fator of aboil, llov. Flower was con
vinced that the programme already outlined
was better tactics.
Judge Clute of Albany wanted tho delogatlon
to accept the platform and the ticket and sup
port it al tho polls. Congressman William
Suiter took the same stand, as he has already
done before, uud he urged that free stiver be ac
cepted and supported.
lie believed that freo sliver would be a
stronger Issni tn New York than appeared at
present. He believed In regularity aboto all
thlngs.and was ready to swal ow any nlatfnrm
and any candidate selected by .tho Convention.
John It. Fellows made an el i" .ent speech ex
pressing his resentment at the treatment ac
corded New York and the rest of the Eastern
delegates In this Convention.
He would like to have a bolt and wouldn't
support tho platform, but ho was willing to ac
cept the Judgmrui of the majority of tbe dele
gallon. Slate Senator Guy spoke In behalf of County
Clerk Purroy, wtio was absent, and declared
strongly against a bolt under any circumstances.
Thu nutcomo of the discussion was the adop
tion of a resolution appointing a steering com
mittee consisting of Senator Hill, Mr. Whitney,
ex-tiov. Flower, Frederic It. Coudert, Chairman
Hlnkley of the Democratic State Committee,
and John C. Sheehan. This committee
was empowered to decide upon w hat
action should bo taken in any contin
gency which might arise at the night
session of ihe Convention, but It was distinctly
stated that they could not order a bolt and
conld not direct that any vote should be cast by
tho delegation after tho balloting for candi
dates should begin.
The committee was also directed to preparo a
statement for the publlo after tbe adjournment
of the Convention, setting forth tho attitude uf
tho Now YorK delegation and Its reasons for a.
sinning It. This statement wilt probably bo

New York has been looked to by the gold men

protest of one-thlrd of tbe Convention. But
two hours after the Convention bad met in the
evening no such word had bean received, and
I liiilrinan William K. Harrily said that the
plan was to vote (or Patllson.
The Wisconsin delegation met In tbe recess,
and decided upon tho same course of aotion as
that adopted by New Vork. Oen. Kdward 8.
Bragg announced that all the delegates would
sit still and refuse to vote.
The sentiment of the Massachusetts delega
lion was strongly In favor of tho same course,
and most of her representatives will refuse to
vote while remaining In the Contention. But,
owing to tho fact that George KredJ Wil
liams and one or two other delegates are silver
men, no meeting was held.
The same was true of the other New England
delegations, aud most of the delegates from
Main;, llhode Island, Vermont, and New Hamp
shire declares! their Intention of staying, but
not voting. A minority said they would vote
for nun candidate or another. The delegates
from South Dakota, only one of whom Is a
silver man, were slmllnrly divided.
New Jersey decided lo act as a unit with New
Yurk tn remaining in their seats and refusing
to voto for candidates.

The reporter pushed his way from one end of

than llfty men, all of them strangers, slapped
him on tho shoulder and said: "I tell you that

Democrats like htm!"
Tho same crowd that praised Hill, nnd it was
a free-silver crowd, too, denounced Tillman in
unmeasured terms. They called him a dema

Ciui'Aiio, July P.-While thuro aro plenty uf
hotel accommodations in Chicago, it is a fact
that the rooms of thu leading hotels each hold
two and most of them three occupants. Olio uf
these looms Is occupied by three men repre
senting a New York newspaper. Tim room con
tains two bods and one ent. Due of the threo
occupants proposed drawing lots lo sic who
should occupj thu cot. Another agreed lo the
proposition, hut the third, whu Is the most dis
tinguished uf the lot mid w ho Ins tho w light uf
thu universe on his shoulder most of tho time,
said :
"No, I am sent hero In do great work for
our paper, and I must have a bid," and he
selected Ills bed and pinned his cud on ,t. Things
went pretty well fur a couple of dats, according
to tbo tvtenty-llte uther representatives of that
newspuper, but the man whosu fate it was tu
occupy the cot mado up his mind on the tjilrd
day that ho was Just as good a aiau as the dis
tinguished cltl7en, and he said:
"I will uccuoy his bed to-nluht."
" You ore taking your life In jour hnud.''sald
the other members of the delegation; "now
mind, there will bu trouble."
But the cot occupant raid:
" 1 shall occupy that man's bed to-night."
It was about 1 o'clock In the morning when
the leader of the delegation camu into the room
und discovered the cot man In ihe bed. The
great thinker was still down stairs.
"Get up," said thu leader to tha cot man.
" Now there will bo trouble."
" Go 'way," said iho cut man, " I am drunk."
and he stmnlatrd drunkenness.
" Where is be?" demanded tho man in the bed.
" He Is dow n slalrs," said tho leader, " and ha
will be up In a few minutes. Now you bad bet
ter get iiulof that bed and not have auy trail blo."
' I'm drunk," declared the cot man, and bo
threw down the clothes and flourished a pistol
In one band and a club In the other.
At Ibis moment the footstep of the distin
guished wrlu r of pjeces (or the paper was heatd
outside the dour. Tho leader of tho delegation
t.tnlr vt us nothing to do. and ho tvlicd al
the cut man: "Shut up. ou damned drunkard!
Do you think that peoplo can sleep wllh tou
going on this way all night."
The door opened, the distinguished man came
la. the tot man sang an apparently drunken
song, flourished his club and pistol, rolled
around in bed, and snorted. The distinguished
man approached the bed, looked a moment, and
"Walt, where is my nightshirt?"
Thus did tho hero ot Port Arthur fall. He
occupied the cot that night.

confusion and delay on the opening day, re
ceived a (rush excinplitlcuiion to-night, when
the crowd in the hull was by for the largest of
the Convention.
About 0 o'clock, when many of the delegates
hod not arrived aud many of tbe newspaper
correspondents who had gone out hud not re

is a delegate at large, w as one ot those who was
pushed away from the doors by the Chicago
He struggled through tbe crowd from one
entrance to another only to bo ordered back at
each, ll was a curious thing for a Democratlo
Couventlon to shut out Its own delegates. News
papermen who had work to do nnd whose seats
were vacant inside tbe hall were shut out In the
same cavalier way.
The policemen said that tbey were acting
under orders and would admit nobody, whether
they were delegates or not. These orders, they
said, had been received from tho Sergeuut-ot-Arms,
aud lhv were so explicit that the police
were positive thev had not misunderstood them.
