McMillin Nominated for Governor bv Ten
nessee Democrats.
(ieoritc A. 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.

Mr. Grosvenor Taken to Task for Criticism
of Democrats.
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

rupted him.
"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.

the presentation of candidates for degrees
was the presence in the front row of can
didates of twenty-two seniors, all wearing
the United States uniform. They are mem
bers of Battery A, Light Artillery, of the

their volunteering their college courses had
not been completed, the corporation had
