Cincinnati, 0., May 20.?A political |
pant was born into the world to-day.
It is the literal truth to state that no
more wonderful exhibition of lung power
at a natal event was ever heard than
jr. Cincinnati MuslcIIall this afternoon.
}"rom the moment in the morning when
the great gathering of /armors and wage
workers voted eagerly lor making a national
executive committee a part
of the programme, tha result
was to a certain extent fore?.'.'10.
All doubt was removod in ten
seconds when, toward evening, after
scenes of almos t unprecedented turmoil,
the iri -h, clear countcuanco of Ignatius
Jii'tineUy, of Minnesota, Chairman of
tiie (Vmimitteo on Resolutions, beamed
from the rostrum upon the struggling,
veiling mass of humanity in the convention,
and with a dignity befitting
his words announced that the
committee had become a unit for
surfing a third party in the Nation
without another instant's delay. It was
marvellous to see tho etl'ect on delegates
sii'i spectators alike. Fatigue, forebodings,
ijunrrels vnniehod as if struck by
lightning. Breathless and hushed the
listening hundreds waited as Donnelly
continued earnestly: "Wo think we
have performed a work that will affect
tiie noiitics of this country for the next
liflv years."
l'hiil was enough. The audience could
contain itself no longer, but with dynamite
force exploded in a terrific thunder
oi applause.
.1 sensational feature of the proceeding
following Donnelly's announce
came after tliu platform propor
had been adopted. A Cnlifornian
Buiiiod C. W. Millor endeavored "to
thrust before the convention a resolution
pledging the new party to the prohibition
cause. The convention would
not listen to such a resolution at such
an early stage of the new party and it
uas promptly tired.
To-night it is reported that many
members of the National Reform organization
bail withdrawn from tho pnrty
bttause of the defeat of tho resolution.
THE DAY'S PROCEEDINGS.

there ma a great doal of anxioty oxpresicd
as to the platform. In the contention
Gon. Weaver, Jerry Simpson,
anil others strongly opposed to tho third
party idea, were not to he seen; they
were stubbornly laboring with the Committee
on l'latform.
The session was opened by prayer by
Rev. Gilbert DeLamatyr, tho Greenback
Ex-Congressman. Reports from tho
moral committees now helped to kill
time, pending exciting developments
expected when the Committee on Platform
ivos ready to roport.

Mrs. tiougar, in hor speech, denounced
a banquet to be'held to-night,
declaring that the brewers were backing

When the' convention reassembled,
several letters were rend against a third
party, one from L. L. Polk, causing a
breeze. Ignatius Donnelly, chairman of
the Committee on Resolutions, then set
the convention on fire by saying tho
Committee on Platform was unlit for
the organization of a third party. Ho
said there were only two alternatives,
cither ignore a third party or divide the
friends of reform.
He gave way to Mr. Schilling, of Wisconsin,
who read tho platform.
THE PLATFORM.
The committee on resolutions submitted
the platform agreed upon. It states
that thuktime lias arrived for what
should be known as the Foopl'e Party of
America; the platforms ot St. Louis,
Ocala, Fla., and Omaha aro endorsed.

organizations demand the abolition of
National Hanks; demand free and unlimited
coinage of silver; the passage of
laws prohibiting alien ownership of
land; government control of means

Also tluit the members of tho
central committoo for each State can

their respective States.
Several resolutions, not a part of the
platform, wore presented. They favofed
eight hours a flay, and condemned the
action of tho World's Fair in regard to
low wages.
WILD ENTHUSIASM,
The reading of each plank was loudly
cheered, as was the name "People's
Party of theUnitod States."
Ono minor plonk, recommending universal
suffrage, was receivcil in a chilly
way. Tho plank demanding treasury
notes to pay soldiers equivalent to coin,
was received rather unfavorably, but it
was stated that it was tho idea of tho
only soldier on tho cominitteoAfter
this had been explained a wild
yoll of exultation over the platform
arose from a Texan, and the colorod delegate
echoed it, and the convention went
wild, ending tho session in a storm of

STILL AFTER CAMPBELL.
The Governor's Enemies Determined
to Defeat His Obanoo.
NEAL'S REPORTED WITHDRAWAL
Was Not Based on a Ihct, at Least that
is What Knowiuir Ones Say?The
Democratic Situation In Ohio Grotve
Desperate-?The latest Gossip.
Columbus, 0., May 20.?The Democratic
opponents of Govornor Campbell
have not by any means laid down thcii
arms. Indeed tho onslaught led by
John H. McLean and Lawrence T. Neal
is increasing in bitterness each day and
promises to become one oI tho most
sanguinary political coutcts of its character
within tho political history
of tho State. Tho report thai
Lawrence T. Neal had drawn out of the
light was far from true, although il
comes from a reliable source that thorc
were negotiations between the Chillicothe
statesman and the governor with
that end in view. Whatever overtures
were made, however, proved fruitless,
and in tiro language of tho times, Mr.
Neal mav corrcctlv bo regarded
as "Btill in it." 'i'he Neal-McLean
combination have established an
elaborate literary bureau, and have old
time organizers visiting "tho boys"
throughout tlio State. Colonel fcim
Donovan, who has achieved considerable
notoriety as a political missionary,
has been engaged bv tho combination
and is at present mating a tour of tho
State. Sevoral politicians of similar
for liko missions olid uro working
at various points against
Campbell. Mr. S. E. Jonnson,
McLean's Washington ^orrcsponilent,
caino on here a few days ago, and is
in charge of the bureau with headquarters
at the Neil House. The work of
defeating Campbell has been sifted
down into a still hunt, and while the
Enquirer is publishing interviews from
prominent members of tho party who
have arrayed themselves either for or
against tlio Governor, the combination
is getting in its work among those who
are either on the fence or inclined
toward Campbell.
Tho indications are that Mr. Xeal
may overrcach himself in his fight
agiunst Campbell, as there is a schcmo
on foot to down him in a manner least
expected, if tho opportunity is presented
at tho proper time. Tho Campbell
men, who tcel confident of the Governor's
renomination, intended to
liavo revenge. In tho ovent that
Campbell is renominated they will
vigorously oppose "tho proposition
to have tho Stato convention endorse
Neal for tins United States .Senate.
Tho Neal men have labored under the
delusion that should their leader fall
"short of tho gubernatorial nomination,

defeat in the convention, or withdrawal
before that event, a rcsolusion endorsing

London, May 20.?England is becoming
so alarmed at the oxodus of destituto
Hebrews from Bussia, who are coming
into Great Britain, that tho movement
is termed "tho Hebrew invasion of England."
Tho Ewninj A'eun warns the
authorities that it tho movomont is not

movement in England in comparison
with which the New Orleans
affair will be small. On tho other hand,

reception of Hebrews arriving, assorts
that tho actually destitute does not oxceod

and work for "sweating" tailors at the

New Yobt, May 20.?Josoph Hardy,
who claims to have an honorable discharge
from tlie British army, married
pretty Bertha Rova two years ago. An
hour after the ccremony his sister-inlaw,
Dora, asked him to change a $60
bill. Ho did not have anything but $50
bills himself, but said he woulastep out
to a neighboring store and get the
change. According to Miss Dora s story,

the wedding guests.
Hardy said tho women were jealous
and wished to get him into trouble. He
did not deny having left his bride
within on hour after thoy had been
married. He claimed, howover, to have
taken nothing with him but a profound
dislike for the family of hiB bride and
tho consciousness that ho had married
out of his sphere.

company with the deserted wife he called
Sunday night on Mrs. Newman, a
widow, who lives on Tenth avenue, and
found that Hardy was celobrating with
tho daughter of 'Mrs. Newman tne betrothal
ceremonies which, according to |
the German Hebrew custom, immediately
procedo tho marriage function.
"1 arrested him on thei spot and
rather spoiled his bigamous game,"
said the defective, "when Mrs. Newman
heard his deserted wifo's story sho
ordered him out of lier house and told
him never to darken lior door again.
Mother and daughter haS promised to
furnish Hardy with $800 immediately
