Defeated Candidate Indorses Im-*

I Will SuppcTt Parker,
New York Bun Speolal iServiee.
Chicago, July 9. 8 a.m.For his
morning newspapers Mr. Hearst has
writt en an editorial declaring that the
democratic platform is satisfactory to
him and to his follower s. "Th plat
form adopted by th,e St. Louis con
vention wffll be satisfactory to the
democracy--the real democracy is
the way the editorial puts it. Par
ticular mention is made of the trust
and tariff pJankts. Bbth are said to
express the semtlments of the New
York congressman. Particul ar praise
Is giv en to thve trust plank. Other
planks in the platform, among them
those on the Panama oanal, irrigation,
ship subsidies and! colonial affairs, are
also indorsed. T?he editorial ends
with the statement: "There are some
serious analogies (from the platform
that are sure to receive sharp atten
tion, but on the great Issues it is a
better, a more democratic deliverance
than it was feared|. and with reason,
could be got from! the national con
vention of 1904."

Once more Bryan, the orator, has had
a great triumph.
Conservatives Have Won.
But conservative democracy ih as
won and the party has turned? its
back on free silver. The majority of
delegates were for taking a standi tor
gold, but they compromised withi the
silver forces and remained silent on
'the currency question in the platfbrm.
This, while seemingly a defeat for
Bryan, almost as much as a victorjy as
Bryan, was almost as much as vic
tory as a defeat. For had it not i/ee

mittee the gold men would have tri

oessions and comes out of the contests
with a share of the honors.
But the fact remains that the pp-rty
has turned its back on Bryanism and
while there has been no op en repudi
ation of his silver theories, the coun
try will not misunderstand the party
1 position.
I Bryan exerted no influence in the
I convention choloe for president.
I was against Judge Parker, and almost
said so in direot terms in his speech
this morning. The convention, while
charmed by his oration, would not fol
'l ow him. This speech was his last
trump card and was played by spe
cial arrangement with one of the ter
ritories at the close of the rotll call.
D. Hill to tlie^Fore.
Parker's nomination has rehabili
tat ed B. Hill, who must from this
time on be reckoned with again as a
strong factor in democratic affairs. I
was his crafty leadership that won
he fight for Parker.
Murphy of Tammany has died very
hard, and at the last the rank and
file of his organisation, seeing the
drift of events, was not with him.
Hill's recrudescenoe may ultimately
mean Murphy's downfall. I will, cer
tainly confine his activities to Greater
New Yo rk and prevent his becoming
a leader of the state or national par
ty, which was his ambition.
The se are a few of the results of
this morning 's ballot. Altogether it
is a new democracy which now stands
before- the country. It is not simply
''the old democracy revived. It is
more. It is the old democracy pl us
the experience of eight years and the
new ideas which have come to the
fore thru the leadership of such men
as John Sharp Williams.

Stoddard, living on a farm a mile
from Lahgdon, was almost instantly
killed, it is charged, by S. L. Hartzell,
an attorney, who owns a farm across
the road from Stoddard.
Hartzell and Stoddard had had
trouble oVer a roadway, and when
Stoddard and his wife and little
daughter had driven over the Hart
zell land they were met by Hartzell
and his business partner, Bascom.
Stoddard had left the buggy to fix
up the wires of the fence, when, it is
alleged, Hartzell leveled a shotgun at
him and fired, two buckshot pene
trating Stoddard's heart. Death was
almost instant. Mrs. Stoddard and
Bascom witness ed the killing. Both
men came to Langdon about two years
ago from Blue Earth county, Minne

Stoddard asserting that Hartzell had
tried to get Stoddard's wife to start
divorce proceedings.

Hooting, Howling Spectators
Held Sway, Helping Only
Hearst "Demonstration.'
From Staff Correspondent.
St. Louis, July 9."Chaos "worse
confounded" ruled in the democratic
national convention last night. The
convention was simply swamped by
the mob rule of the galleries. Howl
ing, hooting, cheering thousands had
their own swe et will and the conven
tion was.not under control of any
thing but the caprice of the mob.
The patience of the delegates was
strained to the last degree, and the
session all evening was an absolute
farce. The size of the hall was
much to blame,
Its acoustics are bad and few
speakers can fill it When Senator
Daniel read the platform, the gal
leries could not hear a word, and a
buzz of conversation started. Soon
his voice was inaudible fifty feet
away. Frequent bluffs at clearing
the galleries had* no effect.
Littleton of New York made him
self heard when he named Parker as
the crowd wanted to hear him
ut when he was done, the tradi
tional demonstration started. New
York's banner,, followed by those of
other Parker states, started for a pro
cession around the hall. For a solid
half hour banners waved ana galleries
cheered, till everybody was worn out.
It was absolutely .useless so far as any
effect on the delegates was concerned,
but had to be done or the nominati on
would be called a frost.
Then it was up to Hearst's men.
When Delmar had nominated their
candidate, they started a little proces
sion of their own There was not
much to the demonstration as far as
he delegates went, but lusty lungs in
he galleries kept it going, with fre
quent glanc es at watches, till they had
beaten Parker out by several minutes.
There was no other excuse for this
fuss over a defeated candidate, th
in view of the reported million-dollar
campaign, many expressed the opinion
that Hearst was entitled to a half hour
of the party's time. The Hear st dele
gates could not Jiave ,kept it going
five minutes, but for the gallery.
Frank Larrabee stayed in line with
the Minnesota standard for a few min
utes, then got tired and sat down.
Such a mob rule has created a de
mand for smaller conventions that can
carry on business in some semblan ce
of order. Future conventions will be.
held in halls of 3,000. or .4,000 capacity
instead of 11,000, and the attendance
will be limited to delegates, alternates,
newspaper representatives and a few
distinguished guests.
Platoons of strong-lunged, over
zealous partizans surrounding dele
gates do not assist in' their calm de
The enthusiasm of the vast assem
blage was an inspiring sight for a
reasonable time, but the chronic state
of the convention was a hum of dis
order, pierced occasionally by the
frantic shouts of some hopeless, help
less orator with a message he was
striving in vain to deliver. I was a
sad disenchantment for any man pres
ent with preconceived notions of the
dignity of great political conventions.

It would not be surprising if, after
the juncture of the Japanese armies,
Kuropatkin decided to retire even
from Ta-tche-kiao and Hai-chens
and concentrate at Liao-yang. This
would render easy the Japane se plan,
repeatedly predicted, to get posses

from Niu-chuang across the head of

resist Kuropatkin's advance, as the
case might be, at the close of the

Catarrh of Stomach from Coughs
and Colds, and Other Ills Cured
by Peruna When Other Med
icines Failed.
Hon. M. C. Butler, of South Carolina,
was United States Senator from that
state for two terms. In a recent letter
to The Peruna Medicine Co., from Wash
ington, D. he says:
"I can recommend Peruna for dys
pepsia and stomach. I have been
using your medicine for a short period
and I feel very much relieved. It is "in-
deed a wonderful medicine besides a good
tonic."M. C. Butler.
The only rational way to cure dyspep
sia is to remove the catarrh. Peruna has
won its way into thousands of homes and
millions of hearts by its marvelous cures
of catarrhal affections. Peruna does not
produce artificial digestion. It cures ca
tarrh and leaves the stomach to perform
digestion in a natural way. This is vastly
better and safer than resorting to artificial
Peruna has cured more cases of dys
pepsia than all other remedies combined,
simply because it cures catarrh wherever
located. If catarrh is located in the head,
Peruna cures it. If catarrh has fastened
itself in the throat or bronchial tubes, Pe
runa cures it. When catarrh becomes set
tled in the stomach, Peruna cures it, as
well in this location as any other.
Peruna is not simply a remedy for dys
pepsia. Peruna is a catarrh remedy. Pe
runa cures dyspepsia because it is gen
erally dependent upon catarrh.
A Most Wonderful Cure of Dyspepsia Made1
by Pe-ru-na.
A. C. Lockhart, Corner Cottage Street
and Thurston Road, Rochester, N. Y.,
"About fifteen years ago I com
menced to be ailing with a species of
dyspepsia and called on a physician,
who gave me only temporary relief.
"I consulted another physician with
no better results.
\"I am now taking the fifth bottle of
Peruna and have not an ache or a
pain anywhere. bowels move reg
ularly every day and I have taken on
eighteen pounds of flesh, my usu al
weight being 145 pounds. I was down
at one time as low as' one hundred and*
twenty-s ix pounds."A. C. Lockhar t.
Th9 only way to cure a disease is to
strike at and get to the source of the in
disposition. A cold left to run on and on
induces catarrh and catarrh produces con
sumption. What is catarrh but a con
sumption of the vital life forces of one's
body? Many people die from consump
tion when, if the case were more closely
diagnosed it would be called oatarrh.
The specific cure for catarrh is Peruna,

Just thirty years after the first link of
the railroad betyeen Guayaquil, the lead
ing port, and Quito, the capital of Ecua
dor, was built, the track has at last
crossed the summit pass of the Andes at
a height of 10,700 feet above the sea, and
descended to the lofty plain on which
Quito stands to the little town of Guam
ote, 10,000 feet above sea leveL
Nine-tenths of the work has been done,
tho the end of the finished track, now
advancing northward, is still 100 miles
from Quito. The remainder of the work
will involve new difficulties.
As an engineering feat the construction
of the road to the interior plateau has
been one of the most remarkable in rail
road building. The line surmounts one of
the most inaccessible mountain regions of
the world, which hitherto has been tra
versed only by a few difficult and perilous
mule paths.
Up the mountains the road is an almost
endless chain of bridges, tunnels and as
tonishing grades. Some roads in our coun
try expend hundreds of thousands of dol
lars rather than encounter a steep grade
and sometimes extend their lines for sev
eral miles to save even a moderate grade.
But some of the grades on the Guaya
quil-'Quito road are 5% per cent. This
very heavy grade, however, is confined to
a portion of the mountain division, 38
-miles in length. The remainder of the
road has no grade exceeding 3 per cent.
Years ago the great enterprise was
brought to a sudden standstill at Chlmbo,
at the toot of the mountains, fifty-six
miles from Duran. the starting point,
which is across the Guayas river from
Guayaquil, and is connected with that port
by ferry. Difficulties, both physical and
financial, led to the abandonment of the
work, and for thirteen years nothing more
was accomplished.
It was found to be impossible to build
the road up uthe mountains from Chimbo
along the route previously selected, be
cause it extended over the tops of land
slides, and when deep cuttings were made
for the road large areas of the surface be
gan to move ao this route was abandoned
and the builders turned into the deep
gorges of the Chimbo and Chan-Chan riv
ers, constructing long retaining walls
where they were needed along the sides of
the ravines, using the narrow bottom land
and crossing and recrossing the streams to
avoid cliffs and heavy cuttings.
Thus in making the road up the moun
tains, the Chan-Chan river is crossed
twenty-six times and there are forty-three
steel bridges on this part of the line: Ra
vines are spanned by steel viaducts, one
of them, near the village of Alusal, being
340 feet long and another 378 feet long
and 122 feet high. The contracts for
bridge work were let in this country and
have helped to swell the prosperity of
our bridge builders in recent years.
Icebergs are the product of the Greenland
glaciers and are formed by the thousand in the
far northern fiords. As the glaciers sweep into
the sea they "calve" or throw off mighty blocks,
and these ara what we know as icebergs.

the most northerly postofflce in Uncle
Sam's vast dominion where a woman
handles the mail.
Mrs. Plummer receives and forwards
but ten mails a year. To do even this
demands almost impossible feats of
transportation on the part of the mail
carriers, for Coldfoot is on the edge
of the Arctic circle hundreds of miles
to the northward of those portions of
Alaska which lay some claim to being

regular mails, because it is the official

Only recently Commissioner McKen

transportation facilities of that great
territory. If they get a reindeer for

selves extremely fortunate.
On Jan 14 a letter was sent to Mrs.
Plummer requesting an account of
her labors in the Arctic. It took eight
