Three Sessions of the National Convention Held. Eli Ritter, Permanent Chairman, and Sam Small, Secretary. John P. St. John Makes a Fiery Speech. General Bidwell Seems to Have a Mortgage on the Presi dential Nomination. By the Associated Press.l Cincinnati, Jane 29.—The delegates to the Prohibition national convention put in a hard day's work, ending late to night, after three sessions. Permanent organization haa been effected, with Eli Ritter of Indiana aa presiding officer, and Sam Small, the Georgia evangeliat, secretary, and tomorrow the convention will be ready to pass upon the platform and nominate candidates. In a general way tonight, Bidwell of California seems to have the lead for the presidential nomination, while Demoreat of New Yoik is hardly aa prominent aa he waa yeaterday. Judge McCullough of Illinois gained a great deal of ground during the day. The proceedings before the plat form committee show that there is a decided feeling in favor of the Prohibi tionists taking strong and advanced gronnda on various public questions other than prohibition. THE CONVENTION MEETS. The big Muaic hall waa «ay, with bunting, plants, dowers, temperance in" scriptione and portraits of Washington, Lincoln, Neal Dow and Frances Wil lard, when the sixth national conven tion of the Prohibition party was called to order by Chairman Dickey of the na tional committee. The proceedings were opened with the hymn America on the organ, the audi ence rising and joining in the singing. At the conclusion of the hymn Dr. J. G. Evans of Bedding college, Ilia., of fered a prayer. Rev. Dr. M. C. Lockwood oi Cincin nati welcomed the delegates in behalf of the city and state, saying among other things that tbe organized labor «f the country was beginning to arrjfffjtft-fce the fact that the labor aud saloon ptobletna were inseparable; that labor can never rise while the saloon nourished. Professor Dickey responded in behalf of the delegations, and said Prohibition ists knew precisely what they were here for, and exactly where they were going, and there was no danger of any obstacle diverting them from their re lentless purpose. "We are here," he said, "to put candidates in nomination and keep them in the field nntil tbe polls are closed next November." This allusion to fusion with the Peo ple's party waa loudly applauded. ST. JOHN TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN. The speaker farther declared that the delegates were here to make an une quivocal platform, and closed by naming ex-Governor John P. St. John as tempo rary chairman. Wild cheering, waving of flags and handkerchiefs greeted the mention of the famous Kansan's name, and was re newed as he steped on tbe platform and assumed the gavel. Governor St. John thanked the con vention for the honor of being chosen to preeide over "the greatest, grandest convention in sobriety, moral force and' brain power ever convened on American soil," and continued: "It represents the party that dares to do right because it is right, and condemn wrong because it is wrong. It stands for peace, pros perity and happiness to every home, and death to every saloon in tbe land. It demands for woman equal pay in tbe shop, and equal say at the polls; a fair ballot for the white men of Pennsyl vania and Delaware, as well as the black man of Mississippi and South Carolina; that the north and the south, the east and the west, the rich and the poor, shall have protection to their lives and property; that tbe expenses of the government be levied on wealth, instead of the necessities of tbe people. We claim that any system whicn imposes a high tariff on the food, fuel and clothing of the poor, and lets the diamonds of the rich come in free, legalizes robbery under tbe guise of protection, and ought to be forever abolished; that all money should be issued by the government; every dollar of which, whether gold, silver or paper, should stand upon an equality before the law for all purposes: that the coinage of both metals be free." The speaker continued, urging gov ernment ownership of railways and tele graph lines; the election of tbe presi dent, vice-president and senators by direct vote; the extension of the presi dential term to six years, with no suc cessive term; the suppression of monop olies, and continued: "The legalized liquor traffic for beverage purposes is tbe greatest monopoly that ever ex isted ;it destroys 150,000 lives; costs a billion and a half dollars annually; sends misery, poverty, crime and heart ache broadcast among the people; it is a product of Democratic and Republican rule, a damning blot upon civilization, a sin against God and ought to be made a crime against humanity and driven from the face of the earth. The Prohibi tion party ia the only party that darea to fight thia mightiest curae of tbe world. Here we are and we have come to atay. From thia hour let no fuaion, no deala, no compromiae be our motto. Let our platform be bo broad, jnat, clear and comprehensive that all who love God or home or country can join the proceaaion now ready to move on to vic tory." His epeech was frequently interrupted by enthusiastic applause. TEMPORARY ORGANIZATION PERFECTED. A. F. Wolfenberger of Nebraska for secretary, and tbe other officers sug gested by the national committee were elected. The temporary rules presented by the committee provided that only delegatea present should vote. It waa argued that thia would disfranchise distant states, and after a sharp fight the rales were amended to allow the delegates preßent to cast the full vote of a atate. The roll of states was called and the names of the members of the standing committees announced. Pending reporta from the committees on credentials and permanent organiza tion the convention took a recess till 4 p. m. MEMBERS OF COMMITTEES. Among the members of the platform committee are the following: California—Dr. R. H. McDonald. Idaho-H. H Clark. M< ntana—J. C. Templ'eton. Nevada —Thomas Magill. Oregon—E. Bailey. Waahington—D. G. Strung. Wyoming—D. W. Garrigue. The new national committee, which immediately re-elected Samuel Dickie aa chairman, ia in part aa follows: California—Chauncey H. Dnnn, Jesse Yarnell, W. Thomaa Smith. Montana—E. M. Gordon. Nevada—E. W. Taylor. Oregon—Mra. K. S. Dygert, L H. Amoa. Washington—E. B. Sutton, D. G. Strong. Wyoming—O. S. Jackson, Martin J. Waage. COMMITTEES AT WORK. The committees worked during recess. The platform committee selected Judge James Black of Pennsylvania chairman. A sub-committee of five, to formulate a platform and tefer the same to the full committee for action, was appointed. Paraona of New Jersey moved to inetruct the sub-committee to make tbe platform of 1888 the basis of the new platform. Paraona spoke in favor of standing by prohibition and leaving other ieaues alone. The motion was overwhelmingly defeated. The committee on rules and perman ent organization, after a lively discus sion, decided to recommend that only delegates actually present be allowed to vote in the convention. PERMANENT ORGANIZATION. Tbe boDora of permanent organization were hotly contested. The first ballot for chairmanship gave E. Ritter of Indianapolis 18 votes; A. A. Stevena of Pennsylvania, 11; the remainder scat tering. On the second ballot Ritter re ceived twenty-four votea aud was elected. Rev. Samuel Small of Georgia was elected permanent secretary. Soon after 4 o'clock tbe convention re aseembled. After prayer and tbe intro duction of the old Prohibition leaders, the committee on permanent organiza tion reported. The rule giving states votea only for the delegates present was the signal for afight. ' Rev. Samuel Small preaented a minor ity report, which he earnestly advocated in a speech. David Morgan of Minnesota opposed tbn minority report. The discussion lasted nearly an honr, and the minority report wag finally de feated and the majority renort adopted. The convention then adjourned nntil 8 p. m. THE EVENING SESSION. At the evening session Colonel Ritter of Indiana waa installed as permanent chairman. In hia speech he attacked the Republican and Democratic parties for their attitude on the liquor question. Hia remark that the old parties were keeping np a fend thirty yeara old, and that be wanted to shake hands with the aouth, waa greeted with continued ap plause. Colonel Ritter's addreas waa received with great favor, and ia suggestive of Ritter for president. Mrs. Cougar addressed the CDnvention on White Rose leaves. A telegram from the Denver Prohibi tion league, asking for an unconditional plank favoring free and unlimited coin age of gold and silver, waa read, and the convention adjourned until tomorrow. IOWA REPUBLICANS. Platform Adopted and a Ticket Placed In Nomination. Dcs Moines, la., June 29.—The Re publican state convention waa called to order today by E. E. Mack, chairman of the atate central committee. R. E. Huff of Muscatine was made temporary chairman. He made a speech eulogiz ing the Republican party and denounc ing the Democratic, and was loudly ap plauded. After the appointment of committees a recesa waa taken. A committee from the State Temper ance alliance appeared before the com mittee on resolutions and demanded that the previous declaration on the temperance queation be inserted in the platform. ■ On reassembling Benator A. L. Hager of Adair county was made permanent chairman. He delivered an address on national issues. Secretary of State McFarland, Treas urer Feeaon and Attorney-General Btone were renominated without opposition. After the selection of electors at large, the platform was presented and adopted. It endorses the nomination of Harrison and Reid and tbe Republican national platform, and denounces the Democratic national platform. A minority report waa preaented on the prohibition queation, and a aubati tnte moved to it, but both were finally tabled. The convention then adjourned. • OPEN HOUSE AT GRAY GABLES. Mr. and Mrg. Grover Cleveland Hold a Public JReceptlon. Buzzards' Bay, Mass., June 29.—The villagers of Buzzards' Bay and Bourne went over to Cray Cables en masse this evening when ex President Cleveland held open house to hia neighbors. At 6 o'clock the visitors began to arrive, the ex-president and wife receiving them in the square hall, which waa tastefully bedecked with pine twi^a. Rev. Mr. Chamberlain, at the head of •the group, addressed a few worda of neighborly greeting, expreaaing the thanka of the company for Mr. Cleve land'a invitation to call. He said tbey also desired to extend their congratula tions and aaaure Mr. Cleveland that there were no wishes more bearty for his success than those of hia neigh bora in Bourne. Mr. Cleveland replied briefly, expreaa ing deep gratification at tbe kind wish es, eaying he deemed the respect of hia fellow citizens, the trust of frienda and affectionate esteem of neighbors, as among the dearest things of life, and he TEN PAGES. believed no honors can furnißh personal gratification except audi as are based upon these sentiments. He was aware that many of them differed in political thought, "but," said he, "thia detracts nothing from our good citizenahip, pro vided our political ideas and beliefs are based upon deliberate, conscientious and patriotic reflection. It may be we would not be ao widely apart if we underatood each other better. At any rate lam happy in the belief that you do not suspect me any more than 1 do you of any deaire to injure the interests of the people of the country." Tne vieitors were introduced separate ly to Mr. Cleveland and wife. About 300 people in all called. NEW YORK REPUBLICAN CLUBS. A Bombastic Platform Adopted by the Rochester Convention. V., June 29.—The Re publican atate league reconvened thia morning. Reeolutiona were adopted en dowing Harriaon'a administration and ratifying the national platform. High wages and protection are declared the baaiß of national prosperity. America i 8 declared to be for Americana. Reci procity is announced aa the fundamental principle of Republicanism. It is in aiated that the government'a promise to pay, and the coin and paper on which its promise is atamped, ahall each be worth 100 cents to the dollar. Southern outrages on negroes are denounced. The Nicaragua canal is commended. The nomination of Reid ia warmly endorsed. Col. E. A. McAlnin waa re-elected preaident. PEOPLE'S PARTF PLANS. PRESIDENTI AL POSSIBILITIES SPEC ULATED UPON. Senator Stewart or Nevada Looming Up as a Candidate—Gresham Still Talked of—Strong Weaver Sentiment. Omaha, June 29.—The advance guard of the southern delegates to the inde pendent national convention, arrived today. D. Irwia, editor of the Southern Alli ance Farmer, said the sentiment of the flouta w«8 for a western cjua aB nomi nee, and Georgia suggested Congress man Tom Winn for second place, or 0. Hellington.a farmer. Georgia, he said, would undoubtedly elect the Indepen dent state ticket and give its electoral vote to the new party. C. O. Post, chairman of tho Georgia state committee, favored a western man, but he did not want Stewart or Adama, as be wanted something beaidea free silver and was Btuck on the sub-treasury acheme. Word was received in Omaha today intimating that Senator Stewart of Nevada had written a letter absolutely bolting the Republican party. It ia said that Senator John P. Jones will do like wiae, and aB a consequence the Stewart boom haa received an impetus. Still Weaver sentiment leads. General Van Wyck said if Gresham positively refuses to permit the use of his name, J. B. Weaver will be the nominee. A free silver platform will be adopted, be said, thus carrying the sil ver states and throwing the election into the house. Troyerof Washington, Funk of Ore gon, and Brown of California are all Weaver men and many of their dele gates behind them. B. C. Edwards, a delegate at large from Illinois, declarea that hia delega tion will support Greaham, and after Gresham, Weaver. Dr. C. W. Lane, of Oakland, Cal., ia here, holding two proxies from the first California congressional district, and on one of them will present the name of S. F. Norton, of Chicago, for first place. Geooge H. Gibson, editor of the Ne braska Farmera' Alliance, baa formulated a tariff plank for the platform, which he expects the Nebraska delegation will introduce. St. Louis, June 29.—Chairman Taube neck said tonight, before leaviog for Omaha, that the platform adopted there would be the same aa that of the industrial conference at St. Louia, to gether with a denunciation of the force bill, declaring for the Australian ayetem of voting, and a free vote and a fair count.
