HHM j'' Tho Tammany train started for home at 10
HHl S- o'clock this evening, taking with It most of

jViI There Is a considerable difference of opinion
F .HE J I among the members of the New York delega-
l-ii pSf f "" tlon as to what attitude tho Now York Democ-
W'r ''." racy should assume toward the ticket. Among
f . '; the Tammany delegates there It a strong senil-
fi ll. menl in favor of supporting it.
fjj A V This feeling Is expressed by many of these
ij I l,f who may be said to speak for the rank and file
if f of tho Tammany voters, such as JohnO. Bhee-
S'lt'l'V 1 ban, Henry D. Pnrroy, State Senator Guy, and
?lfv' I 8 Congressman Snlzer, and they are convinced
fl .1 that this action will be taken by the Tammany
7 WS organization.
y h-lm Aa a, matter of fact, the attitude of Tammany
3i $ will bo largely determined by the action taken
f M T le -Stato organization as a whole. On tho
i P & other hand, some of the Tammany men, includ-
f & Wi lna ex-Mayor Hngh J. Grant and Congressman
JK ?h' McClellan. declare that they will not support
- HL M? the ticket under any circumstances.
"-V 'f' The delegates from up the State are Jnst as
- fRr Bach divided In sentiment, tome of them de
tlr ' '' clarlng that tbey will certainly support the
L9L Y"" tieket and others that they will certainly not

i.Hjj' i.: the New Yorkers of running a third ticket, and
'HIv : It Is not thought likely that that coarse will be

Ht! ' Immediately after the nomination of Wll-
;'' h Um J-CfJ'11 expressions of oplnien were se-
Hi ' J oared from members of the New York delega-
J' -'K tlon. JohnO. Sheohan soldi

K I rentlon. These people were in the major-
K ;J Ity, and they took advantage of it. as
K f they had a right to. There Is no reason

I I the monetary system established by the Constl
' j, tutlon. consisting of gold and silver. Iiocently

Q attitude of Tammany Hall will not be deter-
i , -r mined until we have had a meeting of the Ex-
' I 5 ecutive Committee and sounded the sentiment
t- t - of our constituents.
K n, Ei-1'ollco Commissioner James J. Martin
U $i cannot say whether I will support the tloket,
fi i' fc We shalt tako our position after we go home.
K t&Y County clerk Honry D. l'urroy-I have at-
Efflffej tended fivo National Conventions, but I never
fc?? I saw one which could compare with this In en-
sJkt I, thuslasin. I have never seen such an outpour-

)( James A, O'dorman Unless the State Conven-
UATH tlon repudlatas thu platform, It will bo the duty
rtfPwS) ' eTer' Now York Democrat lo support the
$ILWM ticket. Thu principles embodied In the plat-
'fg 1 form are violently opposed to thoso advocated
jftVfi'i' b' "10 Xw York delegates, but It
TJHEly mUBt I" remembered that these tenets
'HKfllt' ro held by a great inalorlty of the
(HaNd deletates regularly elected to the Convention,
1 tVA a ll ' " 1,e'nocratl principle that the major-
flflrl $ ity ihall govern. If the ticket Is beaten In New
1 HKU York, the result will vindicate the position
I Ha taken by the New York Democrats, and will
JhHjJB if place the responsibility for It.
HHHJKm Congressman George II. McClvllan-It Is im-
HHK-' possible to say what will be the outcome In
HHHHTj New York Stato. Tammany, I suppose, will
HHBHmj join the State organization In any action that
HBIH4l may be determined upon. The outlook Is
HhHJ H gloomy,
HHjHH District Attorney John K. Fellows There Is
HHiHjH no use in speculating as to our future course.
HHl Hj H We can't tell what will be done until we get
HMH n home. Who thinks for a moment that this
HHUB I platform and ticket could carry Niw York ?
HHbH, Klllptt F, Danforth I shall go home and vote
HJpHJiH the ticket nominated. Ultimate action of the
HHHjKMi.Wn.''' i. . . ....
State organization will not be definitely known
antll there Is an opportunity for ui td consult
our conilllmints. I do not believe Ihe result of
this Convention will work any serious Injury to
the party In New York State. I should not
be surprltcd If the stiver men Won tho
election. The ssntlment in their favor
Is very strong In the South and West.
Throughout tho farming sections of New
York there Is a strong silver sentltntnU I know
that It is so In my district, which comprises the
counties of Uroome. Tioga, Chenango, Data
ware and Tompkins. A big majority of the sll
ver men there are lttpubllcnns. and In my opin
ion the Republican party will Inso a great many
votes this fall through Its declaration for the
gold standard.
Congresunan Franklin Bartlett The plat
form Is so full of wicked and pernicious fea
tures that It la difficult to pick out that which
Is the moat wloked. But the thing which has
Impressed mn moit Is the plank whloh aisatla
the Supreme Court of the United States and
strikes at the Constitution.
It proposes tho reversal of the Judgment of
the court of last resort by the action of Con
gress. If an aut of the Federal Legislature
can destroy the decisions nf the Supreme
Court of the United States. It necessarily
follows that nnv State Legislature can de
stroy the authority of Its own court of last re
sort. This means anarchy. It means not only
taklnr from us our proporty, but is destructive
of every safeguard of llfo, lloerty, and property.
Another base feature of tho platform Is that
which attacks the Kxocutlve cower for oresorr-
Ing property and llfo by calling out tho troops In
case of riot or insurrection, and this, with the
attack on the Supreme Court and tho dec
laration In favor of an Income tax, is class
legislation of the worst sort. No nation can
ever thrive by dlshounstr. and the attempt
through free-silver coinage to repudiate 60
per cent, of the debts throughout tho
country Is dishonest. It Is a proposition
which strikes at every wago earner in
tho country. It is a atep toward decreasing
the purchasing power of the dollar. When
tho people come to understand the platform,
they will rlso up and extermlnato this craze.
My opinion Is that every honest citizen of the
country desires to havo tho currency main
tained at tho highest standard, so that It will
bring the moit In return,
"The people at large do not sympathize wlfh
any platform that strlkrs nt property. Anothur
ovll featureof Us declarations Is Its attack on tho
National Government for preserving Its credit
by tho sale of bonds, it also commits the party
to enormous appropriations for river and
harbor Improvements, with the evident purpose
of attempting to catah votes along the Missis
sippi. None of the things that I have mentioned
has ever beforo held ft place In a Democratic
platform. I shall not support the candidate
nominated on this platform.
Ex-Mayor Hugh J. Urant -The man Just fits
the platform, and I shall suuport neither. 1
shall take no part In any conferences
looking to arrangements for supporting
tho ticket. No Honest man can take any
other course. Tlio platform Is dishonest. It
seeks repudiation. The line between honesty
nnd dishonesty Is sharp and plain, and we can
all see and understand It. ,.
State Senator Ahearn No man Is competent
to speak for the organization as to our future
action. Personally, I have no opinion to ex
press. DoLancey Nlcoll In mv Judgment Now York
will go Republican this fall by X'00,000. and the
other Eastern Statos will give correspondingly
great majorities for McKlnley. Illinois. Indiana,
and Ohio will be the battle ground. There
would be nodlfik'ulty In forming n sound-money
party. In which Democrats could keep alive the
principles of true Democracy. But In case of
such a movement. It Is doubtful whether It
would be expedient to nominate a third elec
toral ticket In every State. In the three I
have spoken of It is necessary for sound
money Democrats to have a rallying;
point. There should be a general campaign by
sound-money Democrats to keep those already
inclined toward silver from voting that way. I
would rather cut off my right hand than vote
for this platform, even If Senator Hill had been
nominated on it.
Arthur McLean of Nowburgh I think the
ticket will be very poorly received at home. In
my district resolutions were passed favoring the
gold standard. I have been against a bolt from
the beginning. I believe in fighting the matter
out in oar own party, and in appealing to the
State Convention in the fall for endorsement of
our action.
John D. Crlmmtns Bryan Is the natural can
didate on that platform. I will not support him,
but shall remain passive. I do not think there
will be any third ticket In our Stato.
Ex-Lleut.-Gov. William F. Sheehan I havo
nothing to say at this time as to the nomina
tions mode by the Convention or the platform
Assistant District Attorney John F. Mclntyre
I do not sao how the Democrsta of New York
can support a Populist who last year denounced
the Democratlo party: but I shall be guided en
tirely by the action of tho delegation when It
reaches New York.
Thomas Sprnttof St. Lawrence county I shall
stand with the delegation, thinking, neverthe
less, that the platform Is unwise and that the
action of the Convention In voting down Sen
ator Hill's amendments was especially unwise.
Tho temper of the Convention Is more detri
mental to the true welfare of the country than the
platform itself, as It tends strongly to anarchism
and socialism. I understand that the nominee
Is in reality a Populist, In which case I cannot
support him. It this should prove to be a mis
take my position might be modified.
State Senator Obarlas Guy I am going to sup
port the tloket faithfully. I came here to a Con
vention composed of duly accredited Democrats,
and I shall abide by tho wlU of the majority. I
do not agree with the whole platform, but there
are other principles of Democracy which are
worth striving for. I bellove tbat the majority
of the many voters will vote for the ticket.
State Senator Thomas F. Grady I do not care
to express an opinion until tho organization b&3
taken Its stand.
Assemblyman Tralnor The Convention has
nominated the brightest young man In the
countrv. He fits the platform and the platform
fits the man. 1 have always been a Democrat
and I hate to be anything else. I cannot support
any such ticket as that nominated at St. Louis
by a syndicate, and of the two evils I prefer
the evil tn my own house, if It Is to be so
termed. Tlma and study may give us light.
Francis M. Scott Thero Is a strong feeling In
the delegation that wo ought to bolt. It eeoms
to be the duty of the decent and Belf-rep-cllng
Democrats to refuse to participate longer In the
proceedings. A suggestion from this delega
tion thut we were willing to begin the work of
creating a new organization would be fol
lowed Immediately by offers of asslbtanco
from mauy of the ablest men in
our State. Suppose wo could get Wil
liam It. Grace tn assume the leadership
of such a party. Hnw long do you suppose It,
would take him to create an organization that
would spread nnd flourish In every section of
the country? We could easily get all of the
money necessary for such a purpose.
Frederic It, Coudert I nm firmly convinced
no Democrat ought to remain In this Conven
tion. Continuing to occupy seats hero alter tho
adoption of that platform binds us In a certain
sense to support It. 1 for one will not do that.
It Is the boverest blow ever aimed at the Demo
cralloparty. ...
Mr. Hill hod received telegrams during the
day Informing him that Brooklyn, Buffalo, ai.d
New York Democratlo papers would not sup
port a tloket nominated on the plalform. Mr,
Shrohan was present, and ho manifested so mo
little anxiety as to whethur or not tho Informa
tion was correct. He alto refused to be Inter
viewed. James I). Bell, Chairman of tho Democratlo
Central Committee In Kings county, said he
had known tho Brooklyn Eaylc would not sup
port a free-silver ticket and platform, slid was
not at nil surprised to hear that Tin: Nrw YoilK
Sun had taken a stand against the platform.
" I could not pretend to predict lust what ef
fect the action of these papers will have. How
ever, it will certainly divide the party In New
York. In my Judgment, the sound-mumty Dem
ocrats will he largely Influenced by the stand
thy have taken."
llan. Tracy, when asked what he thought nf
the action of Tun Nr.w Yohk 8i!. and the
Brooklyn r.'ntlf. replied:
"Oh, well, there Is no use talking. MoKlnlev
will carry Now ork and a great many other
Htatrs. Of coure Tins New Yohk Sum is prob.
ably the strongest and most Influential Demo,
cratlo paper In the State. It does not surprise
me a bit lo bear that these papers are coming
out against the action of this Convention."

Lt.TCor.w, Neb., Jnly 10. Two month ago W.
J. Bryan said to an Intimate friend In this city:
"I think I shall be tho next President of the
United Btates. I am confident that I shall
be nominated In Chicago, and It nomi
nated I am sure I shall bo elected. I
think McKlnley will be the Republican nomi
nee, and he can be beaten. It la a matter I
hare never said much about, bat I believe In
destiny, and ever since I was fourteen years of
age I havo felt that I was destined to rlsa to a
position of prominence and Importance.
" When I was nominated for Congress and
elected, I regarded that as a stepping itone to
something greater. Lately I haw been consid
ering tho question of the Presidency, and I
somehow have a feeling that the honor of nom
ination tn tho country wilt come to me, when the
Democratlo National Convention shalt meet tn
Chicago. Of courso I am counting upon the
free-silver people controlling the Convention.
For a year I have not thought there was any
doubt of that.
"If I am nominated, I am almost certain that
tho Populists wilt Indorse my candidacy In
their Convention In St. Louis. I think
the free-silver candidate for the Presi
dency wilt bs elected, because thero
will be only one candidate representing
freo silver before the country, and all the silver
people wilt unite on him. I think tho gold peo
ple will have two or moro candidates. Most of
the gold Democrats who would be Inclined to
vote against tho sliver Democratlo nomi
nees and for MoKlnley, or some other gold
candldntes, nre In States that aro suru to go
Republican. On tho othor hand, the cumblood
strength of tho free-silver Democrats and Pop
ulists In Western and Southern States that
have been regarded Republican States will bo
such that many electoral votes will be won from
the Republicans."
Mr. Brian said this to a newspaper man, with
the Injunction that his views should nut be
made public at that time, as he did not wish to
bo regarded as an avowed candidate for the
nomination for the Presidency. His Idea
Was that his chances lay In appearing as
n candidate at the lost moment, nnd It will be
remembered that at his request no montlon of
his candidacy was made at tho State Conven
tion to elect delegate to the Chicago Conven
tion. It wns Mr. Bryan's Intention to be a delegate
himself, and bo In a position to Introduce him
self to the Convention In the anticipated dis
cussion of the silver question. Debate Is
Mr. Bryan's strong point, and he knows
It. All this goes lo show that the Democratlo
nomlnece for President Is a shrowd politician, a
fact that his neighbors In this city and State
have for somo jears been willing to concede.
Bat Mr. Bryan was careful In his ante-convention
utterances, his plans were generally under
stood here In Nebraska, and when he
left for Chicago last Saturday night,
after meeting John P. Irish of Cali
fornia in Joint dobnto on the silver
question at tho Crete Cus.tauq.ua assembly, a
considerable number of Bryan or free-siver
Democrats expected him to come back as the
Presidential nominee.
As early as Monday headauarters for the re
ception of bulletins from Chicago wero opened
in a vacant down-town store, and from Tuesday
noon till a little before 4 this afternoon news of
Bryan's nomination was wired. A vast crowd
was constantly In attendance.
The sole topic of conversattou from the first
was a possibility of Nebraska's favorlto Bon re
ceiving the nomination. The bulletins attracted
as many Republicans as Democrats, and tne
former wcro almost as deeply interested tn the
outcome as the silver men.
Local pride conquered party feeling. Repub
licans said: " Bryan's nomination would be a
good thing for Lincoln and thu State: It would
be a good advertisement. It weald bring
crowds of people here In the same manner tbat
crowds have been attracted at Canton, and I
for one would like to see him nominated."
At 10 o'clock this morning there were two or
three hundred anxious people crowding around
an Improvised platform In front of the
Democratlo headquarters, and the Jam
steadily Increased until 3 o'clock, when
Eleventh street was packed with people
After the announcement of the second ballot
everybody in town was firmly convinced Bryan
would be nominated, and the enthuslastlo ones
began making arrangements to celebrate.
When It was announced that Bryan was
nominated, there was an uproar. The crowd
did not wait to hear the figures, and no more
attention was paid to bulletins.
The people gathered Inside and on the streets
yelled and Jumped like so many mad men In the
excess of their hilarious Joy. From this noisy
centre the news spread like a prairie fire. The
enthusiasm pervaded the entire city.
Workmen left their shops, clerks ran to the
doors, the big business blocks were quickly
emptied of their occupants, and In a Tew min
utes every whistle In town was shrieking the
Tin cans left on the streets from the recent
McKlnley ratification meeting were pressed
Into service and dragged over the brick pave
ments. Tin horns began to contrlbnte their dis
cordant notes to the Bryanlto shout of victory.
The people generally without regard to poll
tics, Joined In the Jubilee. Stores were ran
sacked for flags and bunting and gunpowder,
and before night flags were floating from the
principal buildings, and awnings, windows,
poles, and boxes were covered wllh banting.
Yelling crowds paraded tho streets, marching
to tho muslo of the Salvation Army band and
the din of horns and the booming of cannon.
Lincoln never saw such a scene before, bnt
the leading Bryan adherents say tbat to-day's
excitement Is nothing compared to what will
be enacted when the victor comes home, whloh
will bo probably on Sunday or Monday.
To-night the streets have a holiday appear
ance. The din of afternoon Is bring repeated.
Bonfires aro blazing, and skyrockets nnd Ro
man candles are being ret off. Everybody Is
clamoring for news of Bryan.
A. R. Talbot, Mr. Dryan'i law partner, and
Tommy Alton, deputy Postmaster, a particular
protlgo of Bryan's, are besieged with requests
for Information, But up to a late hour they
have received nothing definite from Chicago re
garding the movemonts of the men of the hour.
Many peorlo did not know that Mrs. Bryan
was In Chicago, and a large number visited the
Bryan resldrnco for the purpose of congratu
lating the wife.
The house la at present In charge of John
Balrd, Mr. Bryan's father-in-law, who Is as
plensod as a little child at the news, Mr. Balrd
Is 75 years old, and has been totally blind for

Omaha, July 10. Five thousand people of
every party Jammed the street In front of the
irrM-frnId office to get tho news bulletins
from the Convention.
Each succeeding report which noted a gain
for Bryan wns received with wild applause.
When the rxport came that the Illinois delega
tion had gone over to Bryan, the enthusiasm of
the crowd knew no bounds.
The conviction which had been growing slnoe
the first ballot tbat Bryan would be the nom
inee was rendered almost certain to the crowd
by the action of Illinois.
Bat when the final announcement of the
United Press came reporting the nomination,
tho crowd lost all control of Itself, The ex.
cited people threw their hats In the air and
yelled themselves hoarse with cries of " Bryan."
Hundreds of photographs of tho silver cham
pion of Nebraska were scattered out over the
heads of the people, and they scrambled for
them, tumbling over one another, yelling' and

A number of promlnont politicians of the

Lincoln. Neb., July 10. The Democracy of
this State has boon divided of recent years.
Tho supporters of tho Administration have all
along had tho recognition of tho National De
mocracy as the regular organization, but the
Bryan faction has outnumbered the hard
money Democrats. Free silver was tho cause of
tho split, and there has been great bitterness
between tho rival wings.
It Is only n few years ago since llryan was for
mally read out of tho regular organization of
the Democratic party In a State Convention.
At that time he made a stirring speech pre
dieting that the tlmo would come when he and
his followers, the supporters of silver, would he
tho Democratic party of Nebrnska.
From that time he gave great consideration to
the Populists, and It Is n fact that he Is to-day
fully as strong in the Populist party as he is in
the free-silver Democratlo party. He had ad
vised fusion, and his policy has always been con

Chicago, July 10. Gov. Waller of Connecti

this morning. Tn a reporter he said :
"The action of this Convention has left only
one course for the souud-money men to pursue.
They must. If they desire to hold the Demo

tion and nominate a man upon the gold plat
form. This Convention assembled here has
sounded the death knell of freo silver. Their
high-handed method of procedure will be re
sented by Democrats generally. The silver
men here have overridden themselves and left
the way for the gold men to bolt their nominees."

TorEKA, Kan., July 10,-The Populist party
was born In Kansas. At Its birth tho free and
unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 1(1 to
1 was made the battlo cry. and, although It was
Jeered at by the two old parties, it never
lowered Its flog. To-day the Populists
of the State are rejoicing over tho action
of the Chicago Convention. W. J. Bryan is a
favorite among the rank and file of that party.
Ho has stumped the State for them and
preached free silver when other Democrats of
greater prominence charged him with desertion
to tho Populist party. Senator Wright said :
"As a Populist nnd advocate of tbo freo coin
age of silver I am pleased with the outcome of
the Chicago Convention, and I nm certain I ox
press the sentiments of my party uhon I say
that the silver forces of the West will endorse
Its action. The platform, with a single elocution
will be satisfactory to Populists. Mr. Bryan Is

Into old-fashtoncd Democratlo grooves. Ho Is

Chicaoo, July 10. Sergeant-at-Arms Martin
of the Convention yesterday nnco more demon
strated In his Inimitable way his moro thnn
masterly ability to mismanage a National Con
vention. He surpassed all provlnus efforts made
by bis prototypes of othor great legislative
bodies for stuptdlty and Incapacity. Leading
Into the level space which Is occupied by the
delegates, ths newspaper reporters, and the of
fleers, and connecting It with thu spacious outer
lobby. Is a gate barely four feet wldo. Through
this aperture It has been the pleasing endeavor
of Col. Martin, aided by his nhle lieutenants, to
squeeze about one.fourth of theporsons In the
Convention hall. The effort was successful In
the last degree.' It wns a performance, con
tinuous throughout most of tho day, second
only to the Justly celebrated act of so manipu
lating a camel that It will go through tho uyoof
a needle.
Col. Martin must have been filled "lib Joy
with the triumph of this new effort nf bis
genius. At any rate, ho did not rnncurn him
self about tho iiialttr much. While Senators,
Judges, Congressmen, nnd fitherxhlgli In piibllu
affairs were struggling unci perspiring at Ihe
narrow doorway, the gentleman from tho
metropolis of Missouri was quite calm, He sat
on the platform with a fan nnd a plti her nf Iced
water at his side, and seemed to be entirely freo
from care.
Inspector Hunt, who Is In charge of the forces
inside and outside the Coliseum, rata yesterday:
"His notour fault If ever) thing goes wrong
with the arrangements lunlde nf the Convention
hall. We havodonu tho best wo could, but, of
course, Mr. Mnrtlu holds the reins hero and
what ho says must be done, no matter what we
think of It. Every minor order I have given has
been countermanded, and my men have been
compelled to put Indignities upon visitors and
citizens whloh under other circumstances tliey
would not think of doing."

Monry the Vote or Itnllnny Travellers.
Overwhelming disgust was tho sentiment In
spired In this city by thu froo-stlvor-Popollst
platform of tbo pervert Convention In Chicago.
Persons of alt classes and occupations united In
expressing their opinion that the attempt at
national repudiation and dishonor must be
frustrated at any cost. Wherever two or three
were gathered together yesterday the question
came up, and men of tho two great parties for
got their differences In a common cause. The
new lines of battle had organized; the silver
men had ohosen tholr standard bearor, and the
fignt wns on.
Mlnglod with the dlsgnstof the Republicans
was the exultation of what seemed to them a
fated misstep on the part of thoenemy. Mingled
with the humiliation of the Democrats was the
determination to defeat the betrayers of the
party. Men of both parties felt, too, a certain
senso of relief tbat tho Issne had been sharply
drawn, so sharply that there would be no
chance for dodging It. Throughout the busi
ness districts one heard cxpressea In many dif
ferent forms, this sentiment:
"Let the old party fight drop. This Is a
fight for tho national crodlt and honor."
Around the tickers and In front of the bulle
tin boards large crowds gathered. This was In
sharp contrast to tho lack uf Intorest In tho Re
publican Convention. But though thero was
widespread Interest, tho enthusiasm which
usually goes with It was lacking. Tho con
glomeration of political freaks In Chicago wns
voting for mon of whom Now Yorkers know
little, but quite enough, and when tho Juvonllo
Bryan's nomination was announced thero was
only a slight manifestation. One of tho heart
test applauders In the crowd that filled Park
row was an old man of commanding height,
who waxed quite Joyful when Bryan's name ap
peared as tho choice of the Convention.
" Well, well," said another elderly man, el
bowing his nay to htm, "I thought you wcro a
"So 1 am, John, so I am," replied theap
plaudcr. " Voted that way every election for
forty years."
" What aro you clapping your hands over
that for, then?" demanded the othor, pointing
to Bryan's name on the bulletin,
" Why, because he'll bo the easiest man to
beat, and after he's beaten we'll havo a Demo
cratic party In tho country again."
Hundreds shared In this feeling, and this was
the explanation of a targe part uf tho interest.
Some tow Southerners and Westerners gathered
about one bulletin had developed a little enthu
siasm, but they had no backing, and soon gavo
over their attempts to cheer.
The amount of quiet interest In tho political
situation was remarkable. In the busiest streets,
even In Broadway, men stood about in little
groups earnestly discussing the situation. The
words "gold." "silver," "bimetallism," and
"1(1 to 1" tilled thu air, Had war suddenly
conlronted tho country moro interest could
hardly have been evoked. And, as would be
the cuse had a foreign country declared war.
upon us, there seemed to bo little argument In
these discussions. Allueru on the fame side,
and the bubject of thu conferences was the ways
and means of lighting thu common enemy.

On the Pennsylvania road, between Jersey
City and Newark, Tub Srs reporters found a
siuull nnd vigorous minority of sllverltes who
wanted to stop the count and argue the ques

porters to tako to the city ana have printed.
Some or them simply said that they backed the
Democratic platform. They all assumed a
rather defiant tone of asserting their views.
Those passengers who spoke with n Herman
accent were, with great unanimity. "For golt,
always." Congrestmau C. N. Fowler of New
Jersey leaned back and assumed a worried
smile. Is there anything anywhere about me
thnt looks crooked 1" he asked. Ills vote was
apologetically recorded in the gold column.
Many of the gold voters confided to the reporters
that tbey wero going to vote the Republican
ticket this fall for tbo first time in their lives.
Only two men out or 4(51 refused to give their
opinion. One of the two was drunk. The
other was disorderly.

On tho train which left Somervllle at 4:25

Another train selected was a Philadelphia

Canton. O., July 10. The Interest of Major ?
McKlnley tn tho Democratic Nnllonhl Conven- j
tlon In Chicago was lively, but hoi of the ab- j
sorblng type which diverts attention from all J
else. It was, to all outward appearances at
least, an Interest prompted by cnrtoalty rathor
than by personal concern. The exciting lncl.
dents In tho big Convention hall nt Chicago, so ,
graphically described In the bulletins, scarcely l
altered the dally routine of the McKlnley home. ; j
Lost night, when Ihe nominating speeches 5
were In progress and a ballot In prospect, the
blinds were down, and the doors closed, and t
tho McKlnley household tn bed but lltt.lt 0
later than the usual hour. This morning,
when tho wires were announcing the final
preparations for a vote, the family carrlago
was driven up to the stoop, and Major nd Mrs. .
McKlnley took their usual drive. When they J
returned there wero an accumulation of balle- I
tins and a number of callers. Tho former wera
glanced over by the Major until he caught the j
run of events In the hall, and then hi attention : (
was given to the visitors as usual. ' B ',
When the stampede to Dryan started the .
Major showed a little keener Interest and wens QR
to tho room where the telegraph Instrument
was ticking. As soon aa he had read the balle-
tins they wero sent down stairs to Mrs. MoJ ;
Ktnleyforher Information and that of a few
friends with her and then to the front porch,
where thero wore a number of newspaper man
and other visitors. Among those on the porch
were National Chairman M. A. Hanna,John
Mllholland. and ex-Congressman Faroohar of
Buffalo, who had come In from Cleveland
Just before the voting becamespjrited. One of the
Major s Secretaries finally brought out tne oui
latin announcing Bryan's nomination, and was
soon followed by the Major himself. He was In
the best spirits and showed every evidence of
satisfaction and contentment. lie Erected the
men on the porch cordially and was disposed to
be chatty.
"Will yon have ft statement on the nomina
tion, the platform, or the work of the Conven
tion for us. Major f" asked one of the reporters.
The smile on the Major's face broadened as
he cast his glance from one to another with
tbo expression that has become familiar to
those seeking Interviews, and replied!
"Nn, I shall have nothing to say." . ,
A little more chat and the Major, the Nation
al Chairman, and the New Yorkers retired to
the bouse, where It is safe to say campaign mat
ters were discussed and probably the Executive
Committee and advisory committees completed.
However, there was no Information given out
at the end of the conference as to the personnel
of the committee or the matters discussed.
Mr. Hannasald a day or two ago that when
the result In Chicago was known he wonld visit
McKlnley and then conclude these committees.
The conference broke up only In time forth
visitors to catch the train to Cleveland, and the
Governor himself drovo them to the station.
Mr. Hanna talked very freely to the party on
the poroh of the Convention, the platform, ana
the nomination, and It was evident that he re
garded all of these as tending to help along the '
campaign, which be is to manage. .The
platform as adopted, bo says, means repadla- H
tlon: the repudiation of debts, both public and V
private, that have been contracted by ths Oov- ft
eminent antl by Individuals to be settled honestly ?1
and eaulubly. It means disgrace to this country,
anil It the principles of that platform are car
ried out, the standing nf this nation among the
nations of the world will Do lowered.
In regard to the nomination of Bryan, he said ,
that on such a platform, all else eliminated, it '
would be Impassible for blm to be elected, and
that tho party would be defeated iKnomlntoasly
at the polls In November. In a sarcastic vein
he said that tho Convention hod made lu fatal
mistake In not coming, to Ohio for Its candi
date, selecting Coxey? and carrying ont the
lines pursued to the very end.
Mr. llanna'woa asked concerning statement
credited to him and telegraphed from Cleve
land a day or twn ago. purporting to be
the answer to California politicians, to the effect
in substance that Major McKlnley Is kindly
disposed to silver and its caue would be moro
advanced by his elevation to the Presidency
than br all the free-silver planks that can be I
odnDtcd by the Democrats and Populists. 3
"I never gave the Interview." said Mr. Hanna,
"nor did I ever express any such sentiments as 1
It contains. It was the work of a young writer t
who puts In a great deal nf bis time In my office. J
As soon ns I learned of the report I telegraphed f.
the papers In which it was published assuring I
them tbat the alleged Interview was a fake ana r
