Gold Men and Silver Men Battle for Honrs They Tell and Raise Havoc Generally and finally Adjourned Without Aocom pllshlng Anything, Louisville, June 25. The democratic Btate convention assembled at Music hall a noon with a large representation from every district. Chairman Carroll of the state committee called the con i vention to order. For the office of tem porary chairman Judge W. B. Beckner and ex-Congressman W. J. Stone were named. Beckner was supported by the Harden men and Stone toy the Clay men. Beckner was elected. The gold advocates olaimed that they achieved a victory in the election of Judge Beck ner, who Is an admirer of the yellow currency. In , taking the chair Judge Beckner said they had met at a time when the return of prosperity was vln dicating the democratic party. Every. thing was happening just as the demo crats said it would. He bad heard a man say once "Why cannot the democrats act in harmony as the republicans did?" We are not built that way, said the judge. The republican convention was dictated to by a boss. ' We have no collars about our necks. We are not afraid to face our record. , The district conventions to choose members of the commltte(.oniesolu;loj;s were called and reported Eight gold men and three silver men were chosen. Senator Blackburn was beaten by twen ty votes in the seventh district by Ar thur Yeager, a gold man. When the Clerk caled out the Second district, which is a free silver one, it was an nounced that Senator Blackburn had received the proxy of the member regu larly chosen by the delegation. Chairman Beckner, however, inform ed the delegation that he could not entertain any such proposition, as Blackburn was not a resident of the Second -'district. The chairman an nounced the membership-at-large as Judge William Lindsay and K. D. Clardy. Mr. Lindsay Is a Btrong gold advocate, while Mr. Clardy Is a free silver admirer, but has not yet deter mined whether he wants a 16 to 1 ra tio. The' convention then took a re. cess, Music hall was packed to overflowing when Chairman Beckner called the convention to order. The proceedings began in a hubbub over a resolution offered by Arthur Wallace declaring it un-American to discriminate against any man or woman because of his or her religious preference. The chair re. ferred the resolution to the committee on resolutions. Several anti-A. P. A. insisted on the resolution, but it was decided all should go to a committee.

C Ul a, Willie lllO chair lost all control of the assemblage and for an hour it seemed it would be impossible to maintain order. Finally the committee on organization recommended as permanent Chairman Congressman J. 8. Berry, and the latter was chosen. In assuming the chair manship Mr. Berry said "The republicans have been endeav oring to persuade the people that all the hard times were caused by the democratic party, when in fact they were caused by their own Iniquities We have some differences about the currency, but let us make a united front and down the republicans. Let us move shoulder to" shoulder to a tri umph in November, such as shall teach them a lesson. A motion to adjourn was made. The clerk was an hour calling the roll, aw Ing to confusion. It was half an hour more before quiet could be sufficiently restored for the chairman to announce the result, 616 no to 217 yes. Great Time Was Made on the Wilkesbnrre Hieycie Track.

Washington, June 25. The treasury gold reserve, as the result of Belmont Morgan payments, became to-d'ay intact again, for the first time since December 14, 1894. It stands now at $100,830,355. There Is still owing from the syndicate $6,000,000 in gold. Now that the gold reserve is intact a question that comes up to Vex the treasury is the issue of gold certificates against gold deposited. . Under the law while the gold is under the $100,000,000 limit gold certificates cannot be issued against gold deposited, but when it ex ceeds that limit the law directs the sec retary of the treasury to Issue such certificates on deposit of gold. The treasury, It is understood, will discour age the issue of such certmcates, Dut will not, of course, refuse to issue them If they are demanded. There was in quiry at the treasury as to whether thei Belmont-Morgan syndicate had secured a modification of the contract. Assistant Secretary Hamlin said: There hrag been mo modification of the contract; the provision that half the gold for the total amount of the loan shall be hrought from abroad is to be carried out. Some of the importations of foreign gold were made in advance of the time stipulated in the contract, but this did not Involve any modification of the contract." At Grace P. E.
