Jt-nlot Honored by the (?Rllii'rinK sit Altoonn?No Soo ef ?Kor to Wheeler. Benton McMillin was nominated by acclamation for governor of Tennessee at Chattanooga yesterday evening by the democratic state convention. Delegate* to the number of about 2,5(H> wen: present from all portions of the state. The convention voted down the minority rep-Tt of the committee on platform, which indorsed the present board of railroad com missioners, and adopted that of the major ity. The platform indorses the Chicago platform, opposes the bond issue for raising war funds, and declares that non-interest bearing treasury warrants would furnish a circulating medium that would accomplish all that was required in prosecuting the war, and also declares that obligations ot the I'nited States should be paid In either gold or silver, at the option of the go\ em inent, and not the creditor. The section re lating to the war is as follows: The I'nited States is engaged in a for eign war with Spain, inaugurated in the name of humanity and for the freedom of Cuba, and we indorse the action of our senators and representatives In Congress in voting to institute this war for these high purposes. We urge its vigorous prose cution. to the end that it may be speedily terminated and the blessings of peace re stored to our country. We recognize the Monroe doctrine as a cardinal tenet of the democratic party and a part of the public policy of the national government and fa vor its strict observance. Mr. McMillin was nominated for gov ernor by acclamation amid great enthu siasm. He responded in a rousing speech, in which he promised success for the party in November, and in case he was elected a thorough business management of the state's business. Nomination of JenkN. George A. Ji nks of Jefferson county. Fa., was nominated for governor by the demo cratic state convention at Aitoona yester I day afternoon. The rest of the ticket lol I lows: Lieutenant governor. William H. Sowden of Lehigh: secretary, I*. C. Delacey: supe ( rior judges, Calvin M. Bower and William Tuckett; congressman-at-large, Jere N. Weller and Frank P. lams: secretary of inti rnal affairs, congressman-at-large and I superior court judge to be filled. The vote for governor was: Jenks, :i(X>; Gordon, 116. The convention was ddminated by the friends of William J. Bryan, led by Col. James M. GulTey of Pittsburg. Notwith i standing ih.s fact, an effort to insert a plank reaffirming the Chicago platform was defeated, the controlling influence in the convention preferring that the platform should relate entirely to state issues. Although his defeat lor the gubernatorial nomination was certain, Judge Gordon cf Philadelphia remained in the light to the finish. About ihe only brilliant forensic effort of tlio day was made in his behalf by Michael J. Kyun of Philadelphia, an orator of great ability. While he was speaking the convention showed some signs of being stampeded by his eloquence, and the hopes of the Gordon leaders were raised hi>'h by the opportunity that came to them in.mediately after Mr. Ryan's speech. The vote on the adoption of the silver plank was taken at this time, and the Gordon leaders passed the word around to support the motion. Nearly, all of that element voted "aye," and the Guffeyltes, who are also regarded as the Bryanites of the party, were put In the strange position of voting against their ideal. They stuck boldly to their position, how ever, and prevented the reaffirmation of the principits of the Chicago convention. This ihey were bound to do to carry out their determination to fight the campaign solely on state issues. Aside from the bri f paragraph supporting the govern ment in its position In the war with Spain, the platfor'n relates entirely to alleged re publican misrule in the state and the steps tl at should be taken to produce a change. The Alabama Vnenuey. Gov. Johnson of Alabama yesterday de clined to order an election to till the al leged vacancy In the south Alabama dis trict, due to the absence with the army of invasion of Gen. Joe Wheeler, the repre sentative from that district in Congress. The governor expresses doubt as to whether a vacancy really exists, and in sitts that should he now order an election and Congress should adjourn before the election occurs, not to reassemble until after the next general election for Con gress, that such an election would be void uider the Alabama statutes, and another election would be necessary in November. It is now too late to order an election to take place at the state election In August,as conventions could not be held and the nom inations certified to the proper officers in time to have the name printed on the offi cial ballots. Mlmif^iiita Kepubllf*ui>*. ST. PAUL, June 30.?Today Minnesota republicans begin their state convention after one of the hardest-fought battles against so-called machine politics ever waged within the ranks of any party. There are three candidates for governor. Samuel R. Van Sant, ex-speaker and ex-depart ment commander of the G. A. R., ran an "anti-machini " campaign for the head of the ticket until about four months ago, when Governor Clough came out in his In terest, since when Captain Van Sant has been looked upon as the "machine" candi date and has a strong following. William Henry Kustis, ex-mayor of Minneapolis, has the support of the 112 delegates from his home county, besides delegates from many other counties, and is waging war as an "anti-machine" candidate. Mr. L. W. Collins, whose term as asso ciate justice of the supreme court has two years to run, is the third candidate. The rest of the ticket depends largely on the head of the ticket because of geographical reasons, but State Auditor R. C. Dunn, State. Treasurer A. T. Koerner and Clerk of the Supreme Court D. S. Reese are prac tically unopposed for renomination. For lieutenant governor and attorney general there are a number of candidates. United States Senator C. K. Davis will be Indorsed for re-election.

He Quotes Article Written by u Mem ber of Hie Opposition?Mr. llailey Augr). The House yesterday disposed of a num ber of measures and incidentally heard a speech from Mr. Allen of Mississippi, which precipitated a political episode, in which Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio ai-.d Mr. Bailey of Texas figured as the principals. Mr. Allen picposed that a company of congressmen be raised and go to Cuba. After sending the Indian and sundry civil bills back to conference consideration of bills from the military affairs committee, under the rule adopted. proceeded. Notable among the measures passed were those providing for the enlistment of cooks in the army; pro viding for the protection of harbor de fenses and fortifications against wanton ar.d malicious injury, and giving the Sec retary of War discretion to permit any church or religious sect to erect its house of worship upon the West Point military reservation. The last-named bill precipi tated considerable discussion, it being framed at the instance of Catholic effort, but giving equal privileges to all churches. The Senate bill providing for the ap pointment of a military secretary to the Secretary of War was defeated, the opposi tion contending the office was unnecessary and unprecedented. The Senate bill providing for a second assistant secretary of war for the present war was defeated by a vote of DO to t?!. The bill to add cheese and canned corn to the army ration occasioned prolonged debate, and it was during its consideration that Mr. Allen spoke and the Grosvenor Bailey Incident took place. Mr. Allen criticising and replying to a feature of the Ohio member's Ohio convention speech, in which the latter referred to the minority as universally opposing war measures, cf.used Mr. Grosvenor to answer. He con tended that hit speech was justified by the facts, and. prs?ceeiUpg. declared he was no mere amenable to criticism than were dem ocratic authorities.' In this connection he read from 'ft Washington newspaper, a democratic organ, he said, an editorial in line with his convention speech. It con tained a severe arraignment of democratic leadership, and Mr. Grosvenor created a sensation by declaring emphatically it was written by a democratic member of the House. r; ?? "N?me hlm.i .naqne him," cried a dozen democrats excitedly, but Mr. Grosvenor vigorously detlinea to name the alleged author of the >artiale. Then came a storm of protests a?ninst.the reading of the edi torial, which the 9^'? member had sent to the- clerk's desjt. "I will read *It myself in my own time; I am a pretty ?-good reader," declared Mr. Grosvenor, as. he demanded the paper's re turn to him. "Name the democratic member whom you say wrote the article," demanded Mr. Wil liams of Mississippi, with questioning em phasis on "you." "I shall not," responded Mr. Grosvenor. He was proceeding, when Mr. Bailey, the leader of the democrats, upon whom every cne knew the article was an attack, arose, plainly excited and Indignant. The Ohioan read a paragraph severely reflecting upon the recent course of the minority and slop ped, as it subsequently developed, to con K2B8K t ) or cofte* cillrd GR. and t*ie? 0 you siTt ll>ute throii oratn-u is made or pun (trniiu. and vino ptwerii prepared tastes lUw tbe choice grade* of ioVm. bat costs about % as noefc.

"1 want to say it's an attack upon mp." said the Texan, "and 1 want every word of it read." "1 shall read what I please," replied Mr. Grosvenor, and Mr. Bailey then made the point of order it could not b.e read. A per sonal colloquy followed full of acrimony, when Mr. Grosvenor said he was no school boy, to be distated to by Mr. ISailey, an I the latter referred to the Ohioan as one who was too indecent to be courteous. Finally Mr. liailey insisted upon his point and the Speaker declared it well taken. Mr. Bailey then withdrew it. saying he merely wanted it made plain that Mr. Grosvenor was proceeding by consent of the House, and not of his own right. Mr. Grosvenor read the editorial in full a^ commeoited upon it as being a more se vere arraignment of the democratic party than his speech contained. "it shows." he taid. "(hat two minds, ono that of a humble republican, the other that of a great democrat, were running in the same channel." "Now, then," said Mr. Bailey calmly, when Mr. Grosvenor had concluded, "will the gentleman from Ohio say who was the democratic congressman who, he declares, wrote the editorial?" "i submit." came the response, "that 1 cannot do that unless the gentleman who positively informed me gives me permis sion. It would be a breach of confidence. I am willing to name the republican mem ber who heard my informant name the democrat who wrote the editorial." "I am inclined to believe," Mr. Bailey said, "that the gentleman from Ohio is right In declining to violate what he con siders a confidence, but it occurs to me that If any member on this side wrote the Editorial he would certainly have the cour age and candor to now admit it." The incident thus closed, and shortly thereafter the House, at G o'clock, adjourn ed, the yeas and nays having been ordered upon an amendment offered by Mr. Otey (Va.) to the bill adding chewing and smok ing tobacco to the ration of soldiers.
