The national silver convention met at the Exposition buildine at 10 o'clock this morning with about 350 delegates in their seats and a larce number of spectators, notwithstand ing the rain. The great hall was hand somely and appropriately decorated. It was 1:15 when James Campbell called the convention to order. He introduced Mr. Xl M. Rumsey, of St. Louis, as temporary chairman and Albert Singer as temporary secretary of the con vention. Among other things, he said: "It is fair to presume that there is not a single delegate present who does not feel sine weighty responsi bility resting upon him individually as a representative to this convention, for upon the results of the nsseinbly will depend largely tho aegree of prosperity our country will enjoy in the immediate future. You are not a law-making body, it is true, but as all laws are the results of the popular will, and as you have been almost as popularly choseu to represent the people of the United States as are the memburs of congress &ent to voice the will of tho people in Washington, it follows that the congress of tne United States may lind through your deliberations and con clusions, that, as you are the latest repre sentative from the people upon the ques tion of tho silver coinage laws, they must ooey tne win or tne people or the United States, and euact the laws which will give to the people of the United States the priv ilege ot coining their silver as freely as they coin their gold." At the conclusion of his address, the various committees on credentials, perma nent organization aud resolutions were appointed, and the convention took a recess till 3 p. m. After the adjournment of the conven tion the committees on permauent organi zation, resolutions and credentials met. lion. R. P. Blaud was made chairman of the resolution committee.

Chairman Warner was introduced to the convention by Senator Stewart and re ceived with cheers. Mr. Warner thanked the convention for the unexpected honor aud said that a subject than which none other affected the peotile of the entire world witli equal weight was the silver question. Demonetization of silver was a great crime and its restora tion was now the most important question of the world. It was the duty of the coun try to restore what should never have been disturbed and this congress has as sembled here to decide upon tho best method to be pursued in reaching that end.

The Ohio Wool Growers' association held a meeting today with a large attendance. They adopted an address to the wool growers of the United States. Tne essential features of the address are: In view of the imminent danger which threatens all industries of our nation and especially the production and manufacture of wool, the wool grow ers of Ohio urge the necessity of uuity and activity in order to avert the peril of free trade or free wool with which they are now menanced. The wool crowers of Ohio advocate a protective s-stem a tariff for revenue will not secure protection. The result of the last presidential election was au emphatic expression oy a large major ity of the peop.e in favor of a compre hensive system, embracing all our indus tries, including the protection of wool by name. If the Republican party in its leg islation or administrative departments fails to comply with this expression it will secure the reproach of insincerity or of in ability to perform its duty. A few foolish ones will say this is only an advertising scheme nnd give it no attention, but the WISE WILL COME And great will be their reward. So if you want to be one of the lucky ones, come at once to 405 East Douglas ave., Wichita, Kansas, and see rtfCEEASED SILYSB COINAGE. Hon. John Jay Knox Presents His Vie?r3 in Opposition Thereto. New York, Nov. 26. Tne propo sition for the substitution or the present silver certificates in place of the legal tender and national bank notes, and the increase of silver coinage, was referred by the action on the convention of the American Bankers' association at Kansas City, to the executive council, composed of twenty-one leading bankers, representing eighteen different states. At their meeting in New York 16 and 17, the executive council, by a vote or twelve to and'finallv, the giving to these silver cer tificates the quality of legal under. "The early requirement of the legal ten der notes was a part of the plan of Secre tary Chase and of the administration of President Lincoln. One of the principal reasons for the organization of the national banking system was to provide a market for government bonds and to facilitate the refunding of the floating debt, including legal tender notes. The national bank note was to be the permanent paper circu lation, the treasury legal tender note was to be temporary only to cover the exigencies of the war. "On March 18, 1S69, an at to strengthenc the public credit was passed in which 'the United States solemnly pledges its faith to make provision at the earliest possible Eeriod for the redemption of the United rates in coin.' After the passage of this act the maximum amount of $449,000,000 of legal tender notes was reduced to J3&J.O0O, 000, and subsequently, under the act of January 14. 18T5, which author zd the in crease of national bank notes, the amount was reduced to 1346,000,000, which is now outstanding. "The writer in his reports as comptroller of the currency for a series of years advo cated the retirement of the government notes and the issue of national bank notes in place thereof. He is in favor of the retire ment of these notes if a better currency can be substituted therefor, but it would be an act of bad faith for the government to exchange these notes for an in ferior currency. It pledged itself when it issued these notes to pay them in gold coin, in the same man ner that it pledged itself to pay in gold the oonas wnicn it issued during the war Un March IS, 1S69. it renewed its pledge to make provision for the redemption of these notes in coin. From the foundation of the government up to tho year 1878, the total coinage of silver dollars was only eight millions; and there were no silver dollar pieces in existence on March 18, 1869, ex cept in the cabinets of the coin collector and laboratory of the metallurgist "The word 'coin' in all the statutes at that time could not therefore refer to the silver dollar. The word meant gold coin, for that was the only kind of coin then in circulation. "Not only does the act of March 18, 1869, as has been shown, pledge the faith of the government for the redemption of the legal tender notes in gold com, but the act providing 'for the resumption of specie payment,' of January 14. 1875, provides for the redemption of these notes in coin at the office or the assistant treasurer in New York, and authorizes the secretary of tne treasury to sell at not less than par in coin a sufficient amount of bonds for the purpose of providing the means for re deeming such notes. Under this act Sec retary Sherman in the year 1878 sold a largo amount of 4 and 4 per cent bonds for gold, for resumption purposes, and on the day of the resumption the secretary held more than 40 per cent in gold of the United States notes then outstanding:. Since that time there has been continually on hand in the treasury this fund of S100.- 000,000, and it can not bo used without bad faith unless a proportionate amount of legal tender notes are retired. The act of July 12, 1882, refers in plain terms to this 'SIOO.OOO.OOO of gold coin and gold bullion in the treasury, reserved for the redemp tion of United States notes.' "The resumption act is still in force, and gives the secretarv of the treasury unlimit ed power to sell the same kind of bonds, if necessary to provide gold for the redemp tion of these notes. When these notes are retired, gold certificates may be issued if additional paper money is desired, and no legislation is required for this purpose, ex cept for the issue of notes of a denomina tion of less thau $20. "For many years silver bullion has been purchased in large amounts and coined, but there is no eood reason why gold cer tificates should not be issued upon the gold in the treasury, as well as to use gold for the purchase of silver, as a basis for silver certificates. Common prudence would seem to dictate that at least one half of the certificates issued, should be based on gold coin held in the treasury. Both of the great political parties, as we have seen, are committed, and all the traditions of the government are against the use of the old, which is held for a specific purpose, namely, the redemption oi tne legal tender notes "The proposition is to purchase fi.OOO.OOO worth of silver monthly instead of $2,000, 000 as at present, to take the place of the legal-tender and national bank notes, and this is to be coined into silver dollars. The amount of national bank uotes out standing October 1, 1SS9, was $203,000,000, and the amount of legal-tender notes ?346, 000,000, makiug a total of ?549,000 000. If the value of the standard silver dollar is 75 cents, then 60,000,000 of such pieces will bu coined annually for niuo years, and at the end of that period we shall have in the treasury vaults i540,000.00 to be added to the existing coinage of $343,000 000, mak ing a grand total of fbil.OOO.OOO, upon which silver legal-tender certificates are to be issued. The result of this operation of exchanging the present leyal-tender and national bank notes for another and inferior kind of paoer currency will not be a savinc. but an expenditure" of 1278,000, 000 in addition to the $100,000,000 now held as a reserve for the present leiral-tender notes. e nave now in tne treasury S2s3, 000 of standard silver dollars, upon which $277,000,000 of certificates have been issued; 00,000,000 of standard silver dollars are also in circulation, and 6,000,000 in the treasury upon which no certificates have been issued. "It would seem that the very first step in legislation should bo a bill to stop the coinage of the $2,000,000 a month which we are now purchasing, and issue certifi cates upon tho bullion, thus savins: the ex pense or coinage. Certainly if S4.000.000 a j month of silver is to be bought during the I next nine years, and $550,000,000 coined, we save the 511,000.000 of cost of coinage, and l-ssue certificates directly upon the bullion. Such change would combine economy with safety, even if the certificates were issued upon a basis of 412 grains. "Air. St. John is sanguine the purchase of $48,000,000 worth of silver annually for nine years and its coinage at great expense will rapidly enhance the value of silver. Equally sanguine were the advocates of hilver coinage ten years ago wheu we com menced the purchase of f24,(0,00Q an nually, but the result has not justified their hopes; for therejhas beed a steady de ems in its value. Ifie rise of silver ex pected may not follow upon the purchases of the government. A largely increased production may orevent. "We do not assent to the prooosition that legislation can be obtained compel ling the secretary of the treasury to In crease the purchase of silver to fl.00Q,(K a month. Even if such legislation fchould pass ws may reasonably expect the presi dent of the United States to interpose his veto, or at least decline to give it his ap proval, as President Grant declined to ap prove legislation of a similar character In the year 1S74. "We do not believe that the national bank notes are all to be retired. It is orobable thst legislation can and will be obtained authorizing the issue of circula tion to the banks at the rate of par on bonds worth 12T in the market and author izing each bank to reduce the bonds re quired to be held as a basis for circulation N LYXX'S GEEAT FACTORIES IN ASHES.

The night is cold, and the many homeless ones will suffer from exposure. Twenty families were rendered homeless by the fire, aud most of their goods have been burned or destroyed by water. It is raining and sleeting hard, destroying goods that were not ruined by the fire. It is impossible to hud property owners to night to get insurance. The total loss will be fully $100,000. AWFUL NATURAL GAS EXPLOSION. DAYTOK, O., Nov. 20. Great crowds of people surround the ruins of the resiuenca of Air. Hawthorne that was wrecked by a natural gas explosion at 1:15 this morn ing. The cause of the catastrophe may never be known: if it was a leak, whether it was in the house or in the street, as the street mains wero smashed and ripped up aud blown in all localities over the prop erty. There were eight people in tho house. Airs. Hawthorne, wife of Air. Haw thorne, and four little children aud his aged father and mother and hitnself. All were suffocated and bruised.

Lynn, the City of Shoes, was visited this afternoon by the greatest fire in its history and with two exceptions the conflagration is the most disastrous that has ever visited Nv En gland. The exceptions are the great Bos tion fire of 1872 aud the Portland fire of 1SG6. Today's fire started at 11:55 a. m. and raced over eight hours, devastating a square mile of the business section of the city and causing a loss estimated at about ten millions. In fact, the greater part of Ward 4 is wined out, as regards the important shoe manufactur ing blocks and prominent places of busi ness. The fire started in Mower's wooden building, on Almont street, over the boil er, and spread with such rapidity that the fire department of the city was powerless to cope with it. A nUKRICANE OF TIKE. When Mower's block caught lire, it was evident a terrible conflagration would re sult. Almost simultaneously tho four- story wooden building of Bennett & Barnett, on Central avenue, and the two-story wooden building on Almont street caught fire and after a time a hurricane of fire was in progress, which blanched the cheeks of all the spectators. For eight hours the flames had full sway, the efforts of firemen and citizens. seeming ly being of no avail, though of course they did valuable work. Aid arrived from Boston, Salem, Alarblehead and surround ing towns but their uuited efforts seemed to have little effect SCENES FULL OF nOUROR. The scenes of the great Boston and Chicago fires wero repeated in all their horrors. Mothers floe ing with babes in their arms, express wagons loading at business and dwelling houses, and transferring goods to a place of safety in many cases a sec ond removal beiug necessary. After the fire had been in progress two hours, everybody declared it would not stop until it reached the ocean. So it looked, and so proved to be the caso. THE LOSSES YERT HKAVV. Four daily newspapers are burned out, the Item, the Bee, the Press nnd the News. Three national banks, the Cent al. Security and First National, together with the Lynn institution for savings, are all wiped out. Twelve of the finest blocks in tho whole city are in ruins. and about twenty-five stores. At tuis writing is is imposwblo to state how mnny dwelling houses are burned. They were mostly oc cupied by the poor class. It is impossible to give any estimate of the insurance, but the lohs on property is placed at 10,000,000. There were many narrow escapes from the fire, but no fatalities nro reported. The high brick fire wall on the B. F. Spinney block served as a barrier to the further pro gress of the flames. QUICK ACTION FOR RELIEF. Alayor Newhall has called a fcpecial meet ing of the aldermen to take action and ap point relief committees. S. N. Breed & Co., the largest lumber dealers in Essex county, loe everything. They estimate their loss at $200,000, insur ance about $12j,0ui). Mouut Vernon street was wiped out en tirely. On this street whs locnted the large brick fnctories occupied by Francis M. Breed, Healy Bros, and William Por ter & Son. Goodwin's, the Inst factory on this street, was also burned. Dynnmite and powder were ud nt fre quent intervals to blow up wooden build ings, but with little effect. The fire vir tually burned itself out, and at 7..J0 was considered under control.

Here is given the paper presented by John Jay Knox, who Ls chairman of the executive council: 'The proposition of Mr. St. John involves the withdrawal of the legal tender note, the disbursement of the one hundred mil lions of gold pledged as security for the re demption of these notes, the increased is sue of silver certificates from two millloaa worth to four millions worth, per month. would give the banks freedom of action in reference to their own iisues and probably j result in continuing tbe present excellent ' national bank circulation until the 4 per cents are all retired in the year 1&CT7.
