BATTLESHIPS' SICKSISTER left Behind in Quarantine at San Francisco Filteen Vessels ol the Fleet Plowing Toward the Far East. fan Francisco, July 7. Fifteen bat tleships of the Atlantic fleet sailed to day on the voyage to take them around the world and to enc" at Hamp ton Roads, whence they started last Tiecember. The sixteenth member of the fleet, the Nebraska, was left be hind because of an outbreak of scarlet fever among the crew. She will be held in quarantine three days and thoroughly fumigated after which she will join her sister ships at Honolulu. Without ceremony or celebration of any sort, the fifteen big fighting ships got under way promptly at two o'clock upon a signal from the Connecticut, Rear Admiral Sperry's flagship. Steaming in single column they slow ly wended their way out of the bay where they had been in anchorage from time to time since their arrival here. Just two months ago. A few small crafts followed in the wake of the fleet as far as to the Golden Gate and gave the big. white ships a parting salute with sirens, while on the hills were gathered scat tered groups of people silently watch ing their departure, which was u strik ing contrast to the enthusiastic recep tion upon their arrival on May C. As the Connecticut passed Fort Point the flagship set signals for more J speed, and the bows of the warships j weer soon throwing up the sea in i white foam as they plowed through j the water. It was 3:10 whenyOig Kentuc!.y. the j last ship in the line, passed the light- house at the entrance to the Golden j Gate and half an hour later the fleet j was lost to view in a dense cloud of ! bliiok smoke and the thick weather ! rolling in from the .sea. The forenoon was one of busy prep aration xn the fleet. The command ers of the warships came aboud the flagship early today to receive their "GOJART" ON A TANK IS A GUAR.ANTCE We are always busy because we do It right.

Investments BRYAN'S TASK LAID OUT If He Cannot Beat Guffey On the floor of the umveni ion ne A Sensational Situation Growing Out of sion of the Denver Convention Which Opened Yes terday With Intermittent Enjhusiasm--The Denver, Colo., July 7. With cheers from ten thousand throats, with a swell of political oratory and the Inspiring spectacle of a vast multi tude of people, the democratic na tional convention began its deliber ations today. The session, lasting a little over two hours, was notable more for the impressive magnitude of Its spectac ular effect than for the business ac complished. It gave, however, oppor tunity for awakening the echoes of the convention to enthusiasm by the keynote speech of the temKrary pre siding officer, Theodore Bell of Cali fornia." for a heuted skirmish inci dental to the contest in the Pennsyl vania delegation, and finally for a unanimous tribute of homage and re spect to the memory of the late Grover Cleveland. But the enthusiasm of the opening session was comparatively brief, in termittent, tempestuous and without that long sustained, frenzied clamor which is still reserved for the future. The day was devoted chiefly to pre liminary formalities. Committees were apointed and now the work of perfecting the permanent organiza tion will be presented tomorrow. Meantime the convention hosts chafe over the two days' delay which must intervene before the great purpose is accomplished the nomination of a presidential candidate. The tide of Bryan sentiment sweeps on, gathering force as it proceeds. Tonight the chorus "Bryan, Bryan." is well nigh universal. With it steadily swings an undercurrent for the nomination of George Gray of Delaware for the vice presidential candidate. The movement, at first intangible, has now assumed a def Inlteness which promises to merge it soon with the seemingly overwhelm ing current moving toward Bryan. Tonight the opponents of Bryan are ' allll seeking to unite their strength j against him, with the hope ulti mately of accomplishing his defeat. ' It was a stirring scene which was spread before Chairman Taggart at noon today when with uplifted gavel he sought to bring order out of the confused babel of sound motion. Tle splendid amphitheater, bedecked with flags and bunting, was packed to its uttermost limits with a dense, seeth Ing mass of humanity. Below the central arena sat the delegates. Just two more than an even thousand, and back of them 1.000 alternates those 1002 the real convention, with the destinies of the party in their hands. Flanking them and sweeping around the hall in long lines Were eager and expectant onlookers, rising tier on tier and gallery on gallery, in solid masses, the bright hess of the women fit gay costumes vieing with the splendors of old glory, which hung on every hand. GROUPS OF LEADERS. Hefe and there stood out notable groups of leaders. Immediately n front, under the presiding officer's eye, was ranged the Nebraska dele gation, headed by the cowboy mayor, Dahlman, the personal spokesman of Bryan. Well In front were the New York cohorts, with Chief Murphy, coliK and impenetrable, and Judge Parker, rather serious faced. Further back was Col. Guffey, the smiling center of the Pennsylvania adherents and near, him James Kerr, who Is struggling to displace Guffey and take up the leadership. Illinois is In the left center, with the rotund Ro ger Sullivan to the fore. Further back Tom Johnson, the mayor of Cleveland, moved among his adher ents until the gavel sent him to his place among the distinguished guests upon the platform. Near him sat a notable group, the venerable Senator Daniel of Virginia, Towne, the vice presidential candidate and orator, and Congressman Sulzer of New York. With the Virginians could be seen Governor Swanson; with Nevada, Governor Dickerson and Senator Newlands; with, Kentucky, Senator McCreary; with Missouri, Senator Stone, ex-Governor Dockery and the redoubtable Chnmp Chirk: with Idaho, former Senators Dubois and ' Heitfeldt. Minnesota, with Johnson's lieutenants, was poorly placed In the rear, while Delaware, with the George Gray forces, were better off in the right foreground. Off to the left the president's daugh-, ter, Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth, smiled ' from one of the boxes, and from another box looked . out the daughter of the Nebraska leader, Mrs. Ruth Bryan Leavitt. On the platform, too, were many representatives of foreign countries, the young Viscount De Chambrun of France, M. Krouperisky of Russia, Hon. H. F. Charteres of England, and the ministers of Argentine, Greece, Belgium and Chile. The initial outbursts of enthusiasm came just as the session was open-t ing when a silken banner bearing a is Dearen ror me Nominanon Fight at Any Rate Has Alienated the Conservative Wing of the Party. portrait of Bryan was displayed. Immediately there was a storm of wild applause, which died ,iav aftT a half minute of explosive demon stration. The appearance of the temporary presiding officer, Theodore Bell of California, was another sig nal for an enthusiastic outbursj. He came forward amid a storm of tri bute. In a strong, far-carrying voice .and easy gesture, he delivered 1:1s opening address, a full hor.r Ion?, with resounding passages, a demand for the righting of public wrongs, punctuated with yells as some phra--e tickled the Taney of the throng. RESTRAINED ENTHUSIASM. . It was noticeable that great ap plause came from the delegates at Bell's impassioned declaration that the writ of injunction shall not be turned into an instrument of op pression. Again there was vproarou.4 applause as he arraigned the repub lican campaign contributions without a "cash register." -After referring to Tait aw the ! seeted candidate" and demanding "but one man in the White Housa at a time," he adroitly turned .'.he speech into a panegyric for liryan, his ref erence to the Nebraska leader bring ing forth a tumultuous demonstra tion. The appointment of committees was quickly disposed of: For a .moment the Pennsylvania row. threatened to throw the convention into wild con fusion. The St. i,e presented two sets of (officers, representing the contend ing . factions. Ollie James of Ken tucky, voicing the Bryan sentiment, endeavored to refer the fight to the credentials committee. Against this, Col. Guffey and his lieutenants, pale and gesticulating wildly, sought to interpose protest. But it was of no avail. For a time pandemonium pre vailed. And then the smooth running machinery consigned the question to the credentials committee, where Bryan's adherents are supreme and the Guffey forces retired, full of wrath and disgust. The presentation of resolutions of respect to the memory of Cleveland brought to the front two notable figures. Judge Parker of New York, the democratic candidate four years ago, and Governor Francis of Mis souri, one of the surviving members of Cleveland's cabinet. The resolu tion adopted emanated from Bryan's friends and was presented by I. N. Dunn of Nebraska, who will make the nominating speech for Bryan. They were no sooner read than shouts of "Parker, Parker," snowed the generous temjier of the conven tion towards the former leader. Judge Parker was prevailed upon to mount the platform where with resonant voice he read his own res olutions of tribute to Cleveland, clos ing with a tactful concession to the Bryan forces by seconding the reso lutions presented by them. Governor Francis" tribute to his former chief breathed a spirit of per sonal association and deep admira tion. With the adoption of the res olutions the convention adjourned until noon tomorrow.

Denver, July 7. Theodore A. Bell, of California, temporary presiding of ficer of the convention sounded the keynote uf the campaign on taking the chair. The earlier part of his speech consisted of an arraignment of the republican party for the things it had neglected to do or had done badly. Chairman Bell deplored the abuse of corporate power, disclaiming that the democratic party was an enemy of all corporations. On the subject of the anti-injunction plank he said : "The charge that the courts are be ing assailed is simply made for the purpose of diverting attention from the real issue. Heretofore It has not been considered treason or an unwar rantable attack upon the honor of the courts to define their jurisdiction, prescribe their procedure, restrict their processes and generally to fix the bounds within which, judicial func tions fhall be exercised. "It makes no difference whether the courts are acting in excess of their Jurisdiction or strictly within their delegated powers. In either case the people have a right to throw addi tional safeguards around human lib erty. There can be no reflection upon the honesty of the courts in the pass age of a measure that will gonfine the equity powers of the federal Jurisdic tion within such bounds as the peo ple of the L'nited States and around the legislative branches of theft- gov ernment may determine. This demo cratic convention must frankly and unequivocally pledge itself to such legislation as will prevent the writ of Injunction from being converted into an instrument of oppression." In conclusion Mr. Bell said: "With the power and opportunity to carry out democratic principles we will be called upon to revise our tariff laws in the interests of the whole peo ple. Thte issue cannot be disposed of by the assertion that the republican party also stands for tariff reform. Republican revision and democratic revision are two different things. "The democratic idea Is that where the tariff enables the trusts to main tain a system of extortion the duty should be removed from all frust made goods, so that competition from abroad may compel reasonable prices to our own people. There is a vast difference between the protection of American industries and the protec tion of criminal monopolies. "The expenses of our government even when most economically admin istered will always require substantial tariff rates, for the customs duties will always be our chief source of revenue. The amount and distribution of these rates must always be determined along equitable lines, keeping In view the greatest happiness to the greater num ber and particularly, withholding the shelter of the tariff from those who use it, not for legitimate self-protection" bout for the criminal purpose of extorting the iast dollar from the American consumer. Use of Campaign Funds. "The currupt use of large sums of money in political campaigns Is large ly responsible for the subversion, of the people's will at the polls. The masses are awakening to the realiza tion of the great power of gold in con tests that ought to be determined ac cording to the character of nominees and the soundness and morality of po litical issues; and there is a general demand for publicity in the collection and use of campaign funds so our cit izens may know whether a political party has purchased its way into of fice or has won its victories by honest means. "In the Chicago convention a minor ity report of the committee on reso lutions, containing a declaration in favor of campaign publicity, was over whelmingly defeated upon a rollcall of the convention and the republican party placed itself squarely upon rec ord in favor of concealing the names of the contributors and the amounts of their subscription, by a vote of fifty to one, in the committee, and by a vote of more than ten to one in the con vention they confessed their guilt. . ."They thus admitted the charge so frequently made by our party that re publican success in the past has large ly depended upon the vast sums ef money collected from the great mo nopolies of the country and corruptly used In the conduct of its campaings. "Let the voters of this country se riously consider whether the refusal of the republican party to disclose the sources and amounts of its election finances is not a Confession of the de- (Continued on page J.)
