Th?- audience was made up largely of visiting delegate*, although local politicians were In evident and a number of ladles graced the function. * Introduced by Mark Hanna. Governor Bushnell, of Ohio, presided over the meeting. On taking the chair, the governor said William McKlnley was the choice nut only of Ohio, but of the nation, and the audlenc* roue and howled Its acquiescence. Like Virginia, I he sold. Ohio proposed to be the "Mother of Presidents." and she was ready with her rn;in for the present occasion. The remainder of the governor's speech was devoted to the question of protection. He was followed by exCongressman William K. Mason, of Chicago. who started out with the statement that to-morrow the Republlcans of the country would meet to nominate a President of the I'nlted States. The audience sent up a terrific shout for the man from Ohio. Why don s you speak about silver?" inquired a voice. -Silver." said Mr. Mason, in response, "is a great Issue between Dem?wrats and Democrats." Mr. Mason said the party of Lincoln has always stood for an honest dollar as consistently as It had stood for the Monroe doctrine. No Republican Congress had ever been and never would be for free ami uniimU*'ii coinage of copper, silver, nickel or gold. or any other metal, except nt Its intrinsic value. It has been said that McKlnley wan a man of one Idea. "The hen-headed gentleman," said Mr. Ma?<>n. "who makes this statement never heard MoKlnley speak on th?* doctrine* of reciprocity, the question of finance, nnd certainly could not have heard him In hi* masterful leadership on the floor of the hou**> when the Flfty-flrat Conadopted the Ke?*d rules. "Hut assuming for the sake of argument. that these Intellectual giants are correct, and that he Is a man of hut one Idea?It 1h a mluhty r.xhI Idea: It is the Republican idea; it is one more Jd??a than Mr. Cleveland ha* had for four years: better than all that, it Is the American Idea. It was the fox. 1 think, who boosted to the lion of her fecundity, and pointing to h?ir brood, berated the lion tluit she had but on.' cub. True,' paid the Hon. ' I have but one cub, but It 1m a lion.' One idea! "Socrates drank the hemlock and fared death for one ld?*a.

" Congressman Oro*venor. of Ohio, said .in attempt was Udng made tu blind the Is.??u?*k of the campaign by the Introduction of the silver question, but the American people were not to bo deceived. What they wonted In the money line was the American dollar. The greenback dollar had no symptoms of debility about it. for It was worth worth lt< face In gold. It was n Republican dollar, fought for, legislated for nnd won by the Republicans, and was always wanted about the protection of American industry represented by Governor McKlnley which would put mor? of them In the pockettf of the American worjwnt-ii iv.lit- i ."# A r-fcn'TH'1 by Governor BushnrU to II.

ST. LOUIS. Mo., June 15.-On the eve of the tenth natlonnl convention of the Republican party, St. Louis resembles a bride decked for the coming of hir liege lord. The buildings llame with buntings, and windows are adorned with pictures of the various candidates, the air b.'ats with the pulsating of martial music as parading clubs, go sweeping by. the streets surge with people borne along In resistless streams while the hotel corridors are choked with a Jostling, pushing maw of humanity. ItIs estimated 75.000 stranger* are in town to-night. The Southern and riantem hotels, where the headquarters of lilt' pi un ii'iit uwKut>v?n ... . ?, were thronged to the doors nil day.

In a good humor, while delegation* met and loader* conferred ! ? bind closed doors as to the llnal details. The most remarkable feature about the convention so fur has been the absence of bad blood among the partisans of the various candidates. The triumph of MuKlnley has been so complete thus far that his friends rnn afford to be magnanimous. and hi* opponents ran do nothing but acquiesce lu the ascertained will of the majority. The partisans of Heed, Quay. Morton and .Milson still wear their buttons and anas stnunch a* ever In their layalty. but they realise the hopelessness of making shrieking or offensive demonstrations in favor of their champion, and the managers of the antl-McKlnley candidates have practically sheathed their swords. This does not mean that they have abandoned the tlold with the exception of Governor Jiradley, of Kentucky. who dropped out last night. Witt C.o Dot* ii w ith Colors I I) lug.

Plait Finally Wins the Fight by a Vote of 37 to IX ST. LOUIS, June 15.?'The mooting of the New York delegation to-day was marked by the attempt to retire Thomas C. I'latt. and the surprise wan so great that the I'latt adherents were forced to lake a recess until 3 o'clock this afternoon In order to marshal their forces. When the delegation was called to order It was understood that Chauncey M. Depew was to b?* named a* chairman of the caucus and that Mr. I'latt was to be s-lected as chairman of the delegation. There was not th?- nhadow of a supposltlon that there would be any opposition. Hut Warner Miller had been In conference all morning with the McKlnlcy managers and with .Mr. Matthews, of Huffulo, and wh?*n the-double proposition was made, he was ujx>n his feet in un InMt.-int. "I move. Mr. Chairman, that the name of Mr. Depew be substituted for that of Mr. Piatt," h?* said. Surprise was written on all faces and even Mr. Depew seemed taken aback. "I do this l?*cause th<* most distinguished man on this delegation has been entirely neglected." saUI Mr. Miller. There were cries of "no" and a motion was at once made to divide the question. Mr. Depew was then selected as chairman of the caucus by an unanimous vote. The question was put as to the selection of Piatt as chairman of the delegation, and th? n Mr. Miller renewed his motion to substitute Mr. Dcpew's name. Mr. Depew sat silent, but Congressman QuIkk In opposing the substitution attacked Mr. Miller in a vigorous and almost vicious manner. Miller rtiokrd Off. Before Mr. Miller could answer Mr. Qulgg. Frederick S. Glbbs had obtained recognition and moved that the delegation take a recess until 3 o'clock this afternoon. In making this motion Glbbs characterized Miller as a "chronic kicker," a "washer of dirty linen," nnd tmiuifni mitrast." and such character! sat Ion*. . . Mr. Miller was not allowed to respond to attacks, but a recess was taken until 2 o"clock. L ? __ . Shortly aft?-r 2 o'clock the New York delegation- met again and at once Mr. Sutherland mad<* a motion for the admission of the press. Thl? was carried and Mr. Depew asked the further pleasure of the meeting. Mr. Lautcrbach obtalned the tloor and criticised the action of Mr. Miller In the morning:, and then proceeded to say that while It was concmM that there would not be any use in carrying to the committee on credentials of the convention the seating of the anti-Morton dt-legates. still he thought that the delegation should protest against the seating of those delegates by the national committee. He thought that the delegates should be allowed to vote on these questions. General Mc- j Cook. one or tne anii-aionun n??r.?. injected ami made a heated argument In \ favor of his own right In the matter. V The statement was noted on the mm- ^ Mrs anil then Mr. Depew arose and made u brief statement. H- said: I have no desire to occupy any other place In this body or to have any other honor except that of presenting the name of Gov-rnor Morton. My friend. Mr. Miller, has made a mistake In misconstruing my answer to his remjrks to me about being chairman of the meeting. I will nut stand for chairman unless my election Is unanimous.'' Mr. Miller arose and stated: "I aid ask Mr. I>ep?'w whether he would accept this nomination and he answered yes, and since the mating this morning he again assured me that he would accept. I stand here to repudiate tho leadership of the man Who has dc..Jnr.Ml ibat MeKlnley Is unlit for the office of President. I cannot stand under such a banner. I cannot go forward with the world pointing Us finger at me and saying: 'How can you vote f.?r a man whom' ability you have questioned? I regret Mr. Chairman, that you will n??t accept the office. I for one will not follow the leadership of Piatt.'M Mr. Thurlow Weed Harries then standing directly In front of Mr. Miller, talked at him In some of the moat violent language that has ever been heard, while the majority of the delegates applauded. Thr llrrblmrr Uo??f. "Thin man," he said, "who was ejected to represent the state of New York as preferring the eamlhlncy of Levi P. Morton has turn- d over t.? William McKlnley. Why! Who is the traitor!" Crle* of "Miller. Miller!" "What Is the Issue'" Why it is MjUer fiKalfiNt Piatt una that aime: inu people do not want to follow a traitor lead." , . MtUer *.?t with trembling Up. and flcneral SJcCwok strove to br-ak Into th?? affair by movtnir to proeeod with the vote. Miller tried to get !tim to not withdraw Mr. Depexv'n name, but he inNiHtrd anil named Warner Miller. That's the lflnur. that'll It; it'* a traitor against a Republican," ahoutcd Delegate A Id rid ire. Then Senator John It.nine* aivte and In scathing term# denounced Mllb r. He mM: "Now the gentleman ha* plaeed hlm*elf In tlw position he coveted. Shall we ehoo*> n it*ffubileitit or a kicker? A chronic kicker from Herkimer. a man whose r?lf?c- H never know n, who was never fnllhfiil to any man ??r any party? That Is the Issue. I hurl back in th?

Ignominy." The mil enll began. When the vote wan announce an I'latt fi.1 and Miller 17, there was a hurst of applause. Mr. Cornelius Hllss offered this resolution: Jiv] Kesolv <>d.
