William F Sheehan who has done tho

On Ino Saino Subject
Special to the News
St Louis Mo JUly OThc platform
vas reported last night unanimously
It contains the following provision In
relation to the Utah situation
We dorrmnd the extermination or
polygamy within tho Jurisdiction of tho
United States and the complete separa
tion ot church and state In political
By the Utah delegates this Is con
sidered n great victory In the face of
tho resolution originally proposed by
Senator Dubois It became evident as
keepers anti policemen was so great
that persons without tickets forced
their way Into tho hall It was a crowd
that Judging from prevailing symp
toms came with the full Intention of
participating In the proceedings for
cheers applause and comment were
forthcoming upon every ocacslon The
first recaption of the evening was given
to Senator Hill of Now York who mado
his first appearance In the hall Oen
Nelson A Miles was also present for
the first time
At 8 oclock there was not a vacant
sent In the vast auditorium From
platform to topmost gallery was packed
with delegates alternate and specta
tors The heat was already In tenon On
the outside the crowd was oven great
er than within the Coliseum So far ns
the Interest of the masses wan con
cerned tonights session was what nil
stared to witness It had been ru
mored that the doors woro to be
thrown open to tho public This was
not true hut tickets sold so cheaply
that they wero within the means of all
Tho only trouble wns that the cheapest
tickets were for sessions gone by and
the buyer took his own chances on get
ting by the door tenders Mnnv of the
bogus tlcketholdern got In and others
leas fortunate blocked the entrances
The streets on the four sides of the
Coliseum were ImpaMnblo HtretcRI1
got Through with dllllctilty and with
danger to humanity The police en
deavored without effect to keep ions
iageoys Nothing however affected
the mob for It Wee known Hint him
dreds passed through the doors who hind
no rlcht to onler and that nerved to I
work tho throng toga frenzy loOn
after thin hull was tilled the mowd
presed against the entrance loth to
give up the chalice of getting In
Frequently half n down people would
be nlloWod to enter on single ticket
No attempt was made In many In
stances to restrict the crowd In Any
way and by the time tho chairman
called the convention to order the hall
was flllcd to the danger line amt be
yond It Is doubtful It ever before In
nny large gathering In the United StntM
were the rules governing admission to
n largo convention to utterly Ignored
consideration for the public safety to
thrust aside ns they worn tonight The
doors were practically thrown open to
the public In the gallery there wns not
nn unoccupied Inch of standing or lilt
tlng room
The passageways under DIP building
were completely choked by a pushing
struggling mats with which the ser
Reantsntarms and police were utterly
unable to cope Severn thousand peo
ple were packed underneath the main
floor vainly trying to gain admission
to the auditorium The congestion
here was highly dangerous In Itself
but still the crowd poured throinth the
entrances And still no effort wan made
to keen them back
A series of energetic thumps upon the
presiding officers table were given by
Chairman Clark nt 803 oclock In an
endeavor to call Ire convention to or <
the convention proceeded that ninny
men of prominence uero In favor ot a
constitutional amendment against po
lygamy To defeat this was the main
purpose of the Utah representatives
und It was accomplished by the action
of tho senator himself He yielded
point after point to tho Utah delega
tion until the foregoing resolution was
agreed upon The language adopted In
nothing more than what In contained
substance In the Utah stnte constitution
and outlined In the manifesto of the
Church ndopted In tho general confer
dice What the Utah people have nl
ready voted for In the adoption of their
state constitution and the Mormon
der The rending clerk ordered the door
otllccrs to dear the aisles As Mr lark I
stood nt the desk Senator Dnnlel ot
Virginia chalrmnti ot the rcsolutlois
committee made his way to his Mo
with a copy of the platform In his hand
Without delay It wnn announced that
the report of the committee would be
received At the itntomont the conven
tion Holzid the opportunity to s I
It I satisfaction nl the unanimous re
tort I A great cry went up A grent
many delegates Jumped to tholr feet
nnd the nut demonstration of the night
Eisilon occurred
Ilecomlng Impatient at the delay I
Senator Daniel began his announce I
ment In the midst of tho uproar t nm
Instructed to make to this convention
he began the report of the commit
tee on revolutions The senators per
sistence had the desired effect although
It wan several minutes before the con
vention composed Itself nnd warning
had to be given by the rending clerk
that quiet must be preserved Cries ot
Louder were rcpcntedly made ni
Senator Daniel proceeded for his voice
deemed Inudequnte to the hall
A great hum of conversation and
noise of shuttling feet and 11110 Ping of
choke mingled to drown the Virgin
Inns voice Powerful us U IK he could
not be heard ten rows of eaots from tlin
stand on which lie stood An Ohio dele
Bnto mounted his chalr mid after re
putedly addressing the thnlrmnn In il
loud mnnner demanded order All
light Bit down and keep still mid v > e
Will have order retorted Mr Clark
Then turning to the clerk he directed
lignin that the aisles be cleared
Henntor Daniels exhaustion from his
long xeiclon with the resolutions 10111
mitten wan apparent To the nlt nudl

silent figure with inovlni llpfj Tun 111111

but Ineffectually DlKturbnnoeit result
ing from cries for ordir from vnrloui
portions of the hall exhausted the 111
tltiice of Chairman Clark und ho gave
personal directions have several per
norm quieted or put out
Senator Daniel however refused to
be disturbed Ho proceeded with tho
rending of the platform loganllecs ot
the fact that not one soul In the hell
except perhaps the stenographer who
stood nt the steps just beneath him
heard a word lie concluded rending
the plntform nt 8 W oclock When It
vvns observed tent ho ceased reading
the convention broke Into cheering
Senator Daniel said I am unnnlmoui
ly Instructed by your committee on
platforms to move the previous question
on Its adoption and 1 now mane lint
motion It was adopted by a viva
oca vote two or three delegates voting
In the negative and they apparently In
more spirit of fun Chairman Clark
then put the motion to adopt the report
and a Viva voce vote carried It
Temporary Chairman Wllllama
mounted the steps leading up to tho
platform swung his hat around his
head and the delegates following his
lead roared their applause agalp and
people In their general conference It In
felt cannot bo objected to In the na
tional platform It pledges the party in
no legislative action or to nnythlntr
looking to the adoption ot a constitu
tional amendment
It developed during the platform die
cuBBlon that those persons who most
strongly urged tho adoption ot n radi
cal plunk did so on account of the In
vcstlgntloit nt Washington and they de
fended their action by reference to the
disclosures there made Had an Agree
merit not been made with Senator Du
bols on the modified resolution by Utah
delegates It Is practically certain that
n provision In favor ot a constitutions
nmendment would have been ndopted
