American pIlitics has in recent times
found characteristic expression in those
turbulent and dramatic events known as
party conventions, which, every recur
ring four years, add memorable chapters
to the stirring history of our national life.
At these great gatherings of party forces
the patriotism of tile country finds its
highest manifestation in time of peace,
and while here within the arena come
together the contending ftactions bearing
the banners of opposing persontal hopes
and amblitions, there is always reigning
above all a transcendent spirit of loyalty
and love of country, such as again and
again quickens the resplonsive multitude
to heights of enthusiasm when sentiments
of patriotic oratory are spoken. With
the growth of the republic these great
quadrennial assembltages are becoming
more anid more popular and the demand
for admission privileges has become so
great thalt vast buildings are now espec
ially constructed for the purpose, while
it has been found necessary to greatly
limit the issae of tickets. Preparations
iare made months in advance for the event;
the mlost systenmatic plans are put in force
for transmitting the proceedings momen
tarily to all parts of the world, for which
purpose an army of press representatives
and telegraphers are required, and a vast
number of subordinates are employed to
attend to the general details.
The present republican convention at
St. Louis is in no sknse inferior to any
that has gone before it in public interest,
and it is probable that at no time have
more important civic problems presented
themselves for peaceful and wise solu
tion before the people of the nation than
those which will be represented by the
candidates of the opposing parties in the
forthcoming election. In the Missouri
city during this week all of the men of
all parties who wear the laurels of polit
ical leadership have been gathCered, and
one of the preliminary battles of the cam
paign has been fought; words tof iimper
ishable truth and eloquence have been
spoken, and with every passing hour his
tory has been made.
Ont Tuesday, at 12:20 o'clock p. m.,
Senator Thomas It. Carter, chaiirman of
the republican national central commtit
tee, called the great assemblage to order
with a gavel madle of oak taken from the
original legislative hall of Missouri.
Rabbi Samuel Saale then offered an in- I
vocation. Following this, without offer
ing any remanrks, the national cllairman
called to preside as temlporary chairmaun
of the convention HIon. Chas. W. Fair
banks of Indiana as the choice of the
committee. In accepting the honor, Mr. I
Fairbanks delivered an eloquent gold
bug address, but so filled with financial t
solecisms as to impair its effectiveness,
It is necessary to quote but one of these
to show the reasoning of the monetary
apostles of the Fairbanks stripe:
"It is an immutable law that two
moneys of unequal value will not circu
late together and that the poorer always
drives out the better." An effectual dis
posal of such sophistry is found in this
passage from a recent letter written by
Governor Fishback of Arkansas: "When
ever either metal began to get cheaper c
than the other by reason of increased 1
supply, people who needed money for
the payment of debts, for embanrking in a
new enterprises and for any other of the
thousand and one uses for which men
need money, would naturally seek out g
for the cheapest and therefore the most V
easily obtained. This at once began to
increase the demand for that money and
to lessen the demand for the other. Thus
by the simple law of demand and supply
the value of one was increased and the a
other lessened until an equilibrium had
settled about the fixed ratio." Of course w
the gold sentiments of the speaker were
wildly applauded.
After the address Chairman Carter at
again arose and presented the names of
those chosen by his committee to act as
temporary secretary, assistant secretaries,
tally clerk, official stenographer, and ser- B:
geants-at-arms and reading clerks. All
were concurred in and declared elected.
Among the assistant secretaries chosen
was W. E. Riley of Montana. The rules tis
of the last convention were then adopted pe
until permanent organization was ef- Cs
fected, the names of those of the different
delegations chosen to act on the various
conmmittees announced aind the conven
tion adjourned.
With a chilling rain the day opened at
St. Louis Wednesday and the city wore a
depressed and sullen air after the turmoil
and excitement of the day before. The
machine nomination of McKinley being
universally conceded the political barom
eter dropped , ith the weather, and
thenceforth there was little to make the
great convention mInenmorable in history.
At 20 minutes before 11 o'clock, Chair
man Fairbanks rapped the vast assembly
to order. Marcus liianna, the latest rev
elation of bossism, stood on the platforml
at his left with Senator Thimas II. Carter
at thei latter's side. Dr. Wilbur Williams
offered prayer. The reports of the corn
mittees were not ready in order, but that
on permanent organization was called
for by a decisive vote. It named John
MI. Thurston of Nebraska for permanent
chairmnan. On comingt to the chair Sen
ator Tihurston delivE r-.d an address which
had been dressed in Wall street and car
ried the views and convictions of tihe
great gold contingent, and of course was
liberally applauded. The convention
then adjourned and came together again
at 2 o'clock p. m.
At 2:10 the convention came to order
under the tapill of Thurston's gavel. The
majority and minority reports of the 1 re
dentials committee were received. The
first was adopted and was a distinct vic
tory for McKinley. The convention then
adjourned to 10 o'clock a. in. yesterday.
SMeKinley and lllol.art.
Yesterday afternoon oMcKinley and
Hobart were nominated, the first receiv
inug 6uy' and the second, IHobart, 533!,1
votes. Au unmistakab.e gold platform
was adopted, but the silver men showed
a strength against the single standard
plank of 1101 . Tvwenty-three silver del
egates followed Teller out of the conven
tion, including Hartman of Montana.
Alter casting blank yotes, Mantle, Carter
and Metzel retired from the hall. The
convention adjourned sine die at 7:50
p. Ii.
BIirtllhday Picnic.
A picnic to Warm Springs was given
on Tuesdtay by Mrs. A. II. Mitchell in
honor of the birthday of her sotn Will.
Mrs. Sant Scott, Mrs. Geo. S. Miller and
Mrs. .1. J. ielen berg assisted the hostess.
Four or five vehicles laden with young
people drove out to the springs where all
enjoyed the royal hospitality for which
the place is famnous, and which was made
especially cordial on this occasion.
IBathing and dancing were indulged in.
Among the equipages which bore the
happy young people to the scene of fes
tivity, was the tally-ho coach, drawn by
four horses, which were skillfully driven
by Paul Mitchell. The seats inside atld
out were tilled with joyous merry-tmakers.
who carried a variety of musical instru
ments and the echoes of whose tally-ho
horn floated in silver cadences over the
town when, at a late hour, the party re
turned after a day of enjoyment long to
be remembered.
The Foucrth.
Preparations for the celebration of the
4th of July are going forward in a vigor
ous and enthusiastic manner and there is
every reason to believe that the day will
be pre-eminently successful in every fea
ture. The comnmittees are made up of
men who will spare no pains to give to
the occasion every possible attraction
calculated to interest and delight the
large number of visitors who are ex
pected to be present. The music will be
among the most pleasing features of the
day, as the name of Mir. Cardona, who
will have charge of it, gives a suilicient
guarantee. The races will afford a full
variety of amusement and the fireworks <
display will be of a more varied and gor
geous character than has ever before I
been seen in this city.
The excursion trains are sure to bring I
a large number of visitors from neighbor
ing cities to witness the base ball game
which, under able direction on both sides, I
with skilled players will present a well- It
matched field. Deer Lodge hopes to en- a
tertain a very large number of her friends
and neighbors on the Fourth.

Narrow Escape froln Drowlling.
Last evening, while playing with a
party of children near Judge Stackpole's
residence, little Sue Larabie fell from the
bridge into Cottonwood creek and was
being carried swiftly down by the current
when Judge Stackpole, who heard the
alarm given by her frightened compan
ions and seeing the child struggling in
the water, leaped in after her and made
a strong effort to overtake her by swim
ming. This he did not succeed in doing
and the little girl would have inevitably
been drowned had not Fred HI-ss plunged
into the torrent and seized her. He was
swept from his feet in an instant but suc
ceeded in getting out with the child in
safety. Though Mr. lHoss cannot swim,
this is the second child he has rescued
from drowning in the Cottonwood.
No time should be lost in enclosing
these branches at the crossings with
woven wire fencing as they are a source
of constant danger to young as well aS
old.

Beware of Ointments for Catarrh that
Contain Mercury,
as mercury will surely destroy the sense
of smell and completely derange the
whole system when entering it through
the mucous surfaces. Such articles
should never be used except on prescrip
tions from reputable physicians, as the
damage they will do is ten fold to the
good you can possibly derive from them.
Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F.
J. Cheney & Co., Tl ledo, O., contains no
mercury, and is taken internally, acting
directly upon the blood and mucous sur"
faces of the system. In buying Hall's
Catarrh Cure be sure you get the genuine.
It is taken internally, and made in Tole
do, Ohio, by F. J. Cheney & Co. Testi.
monials free.
Sold by druggists, price 75c. per bottle.
Hall's Family Pills are the best.
