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

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.
A dozen delegates rose, shouting for
recognition, and each wishing to make Brooklyn

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.
Wllkesbarre, Pa., June 25. The na
tional circuit bicycle races given by the
West End Wheelmen were witnessed
this afternoon at West Side park by
4,000 people. The races were exceeding
ly interesting. The track, a half mile
race course for horses, was in remark
ably good condition and fairly fast time
was the result. The feature was the
winning o the mile open, the best
event on the program, by E. C. Bald
of the Columbia team, in 2:07 fiat, Mayo
and Saunders were put In to pace. Bald
caught them and the field at the half.
On the last turn Cabanne passed Bald
and looked a winner, but the latter, by
a wonderful spurt, got the race. The
time is the world's, competitive record
on this style of track. W. C. Sanger
made his first appearance as a profes
sional by riding a half mile unpaced
in 68 1-5 seconds.
Another feature was the winning of
the half mile open class by Cabanne
Sims, who, with Sanger, was suspend

took occasion to parade and "zig-zag"

heartily applauded their efforts
The game Itself was rather tame, how
ever. The playing did not seem very
spirited on either side, although Yale
had no trouble In completely shutting
out her crimson-legged opponents and
preventing them from scoring. Carter
pitched for the first seven innings, after
which Trudeau took his place. The

A Question Now Comes Up That Vexes the
Treasury and That Is In Regard to the
Issue of Gold Certificates There is no
Modification of the Contract Which Was
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."
