pletes the business features of Its session
to-morrow afternoon, and departs, prac
tically en mane, at 9 o'clock to-morrow
night Tor the World's Fair City, where
thOj delegates, alternates and representa
tives of the press from every State, and
from the Territories and island posses
sions of the United States will spend the
remainder of the week amid the pleasures
and palaces of the Louisiana Purchase
Exposition,
Through the report of the special sub
committee of the convention, which was
chosen at yesterday's session and read by
Its chairman. Senator Chauncey M. De
pew, as soon as the delegates were called
to order to-day, the arrangements for the
St Louis trip were announced to the. .con
vention, and the report was enthusiasti
cally adopted.
Th dlscnssJo cf the plans by the Indl-
eHanoirrp?rdtmt-TIelcgano'ns-furnlshed' almost the
sole topic of interest during theday. .As.
soon as the representatives from.the5ii'
ferent States-began 'to arrive at the Audi
torium after the adjournment of to-day's
session, the Missouri headquarters on the
second floor becanje the rendezvous of men
representing each SUte and Territory,
anxious to complete the preliminaries fqr
the trip of their respecUve delegations to

Secretary Walter r. Stevens. Congress
man James A. Tawney and C. L. Hilleary,

tion could not be'stampeded tf an early
adjournment to-day. New Jtork had
threatened to finish all buslnesji and close
with nominations fo-nlglit. anil for a few
minutes there appeared to bti a chance
that the rules would be sweptf asMe and

"The doorkeepers left the secind coupon
on all of the tickets under an Oppression
that there might be an evening Session and

of what "Uncle Joe" Cannon, would do

heads together in full view of the audi

had ever "been another though-that orig-'

The Republic's dispatches.
The row last night over the definite
throwing out of LaFollette's faction had
settled Itself, so far as this convention is
concerned, early In the day, but It Is well
understood that .the strength of the Re
publican partv In Wisconsin Is by the
committee's acUon badly broken.
The withdrawal ot Hltt early thin morn
ing, the outcome of a conference among
the Illinois supporters of the Congressman,
made plain sailing for Fairbanks. It Is re:
ported late thi evening that all ot the
favorite sons will now leave the contest
and that Fairbanks will go in by accla
mation. The Missouri fellows refuse, however, to
admit -that there Is no chance for their,
man. They do say, however, that they will
Support "Fairbanks heartily if the tide con
Unues In his favor. This it will un
doubtedly 00. and it is a matter of ques
tion whether Walbrldge will be nominated
in tho convention,
Because Speaker Joseph G. Cannon was
the central figure, the proceedings in the
convention to-day took on a plcturesque
ness and denionstrativeness which yester
day were looked for lnvaln.
From the moment he- was escorted to
the, platform to wield the gavel as perma
nent chairman, the entire atmosphere of
the convention changed:-
Enthusiasm which had lain dormant
burst forth, and the applause rang true
and hearty. He made a speech, and the
audience cheered whether he spoke jocu
larly or In serious vein. He was the en
tertainer In fact, he was the convsntion.

REPUBLIC 8PECIAL.
Chicago, June 21 With the tariff plank
of the Republican national'platform' "ac
cepted generally as a compromise be
tween the "stahd patters' and the re
visionists, the plank relating to Southern
representation in Congress and the Elec
toral College has attracted the greatest
Interest among public men here.
One of theso planks is looking to the
reduction of the representation of certain
Bouthern States in the Electoral College
and in Congress. It Is built upon what. Is
known as the "Payne resolution," offered
eight years ao, and the Quay resolution,
offered four years ago, but. goes' further
than either.
The plank directs an investigation to
ascertain whether there have beeji uncon
stitutional disfranchisements of voters in
any State, and, if so. demands a "reduction
ot the representation of such States hi
Congress, with th, consequent reduction
in the Electoral College and In national 1
Conventions
It is regarded by mostly all seen by
The Republic correspondent to-night- as
a most Important announcement and per
haps'the most Interesting In the en'tlri)
platform. Many of them take the ground
that it means congressional investigation
of the franchises in the South, whether It
results in legislation or not
Senator Fatrbanks, who will be nom
inated for Vice President to-morrow, ex-,
pressed himself as exceedingly pleased
with the "platform, but did not want to" be
put In. quotation marl's. He said that
every feature was satisfactory, especially
that relating to the tariff.
"That's a very good tariff planlr," said
Senator Allison, "now that It has been
changed apparently to the satisfaction of
all concerned."
General Powell Clayton of Arkansas
dwelt at some length upon 'the plank
bearing on the Southern -vote.
"I consider that plank," said he, "one of.
the. greatest importance, nd to my mind
it means that the Republican party Is
p'edged to a congressional Investigation
of the Southern franchise, end If the con
dition.? are found as reported from time
to time thtrc can be no injustice in basing
the representation of. the South in Con
gress and tbt Electoral College on the
actual vote cast; We Republicans in the
South fceileve thnt tb. ,'quesUon .should'
hava len settled ions tgo and I know in,"
my S;ate of Atkansa3 thlt, plank would'
hav a gcon enect.
Sdtatvr MtComa cf Maryland said:
,"It Is a departure from the average Re
publican platform In this respect, but It
seems to be perfectly right It looks like
a threat hut why not, it any such unjust
conditions as disfranchisement exist?
There ia no fairness la basing- a repre
sentation in Congress or the Electoral
Ccllege on a vote that never votea. This
means that the Republican- party stands
committed to lnvestigatioa of this ques
tion." -.
Governor Murphy of New Jersey said:
"The jIank relating to'Soutcern repre
sentation In Congress should cause f-no'
sensation, although perhaps it Is a de
parture In Republican platforms. On-the
whole. It Is good, sound doctrine; If the.
white men of the South see .fit to dis
franchise the colored vote, -and "thbrcan
be. completely probed "oh 'congressional 'tn
ye'sUga'tlon, there can, be no- injustice, ia
demanding that the Souths; ic'presenta
