Denver, Colo., Jnly 11.—A mass meet
ing waa called by President Merrick of
the State Silver league at Collieeum hall
today. The building waa crowded with
thousands of delegatea from every sec
tion of the atate, who had come to Bee
what could be done towards crystalizing
■entiment in Colorado for the establish
ment of free and ulimited coinage of
silver. There appeared to be bnt one
feeling in all the gathering, and that was
free coinage or nothing.
In his addreaa calling the meeting to
order, President Merrick said. "Weaak
for justice, for our rights; we will accept
nothing else. Tbe crime of 1873 has
gone on all these years unpunished; we
are here to demand an early and speedy
settlement of the silver question."
Following hia remarks a committee
on organization was appointed and a
motion made to,take a recess. At this
point some extremists attempted to in
troduce a resolution. Thia created an
uproar which came near terminating in
a riot. Quiet was finally restored and a
On reassembling it could be seen that
the spirit winch controlled the delegatea
at the morning aession waa not under
control, bat only waiting an opportu
nity to break out again. Hon. Charles
S. Thomas, Democratic national com
mitteeman from Colorado, waa made
permanent chairman. In assuming the
chairman be said: "We are face to face
with a crisis which has bad but few
parallels in the history of this country;
so deep, so broad,-ao far-reaching, it
does not involve exaggeration to predict
that it means another phase of tbe old
question of slaver* over again. It is the
stagnation of business and paralysis of
- This stagnation. Thomae went on to
enow, was from the failure to restore
ailver to itn legitimate t At 10. of 16 to 1.
■ At the conclusion of Thomas' remarks
there waa a call for Governor Waite.
Tbe echo was taken up in a mighty
shout from 1000 lungs, which waa car
ried to 'the galleries, where ai many
more joined in the demonstration. Aa
the old gray-haired governor atarted
down the aialo to the platform, tbe
scene presented was beyond description.
Men whoso future depended npon tbe
cause for which they were fighting stood
in their seats and yelled until ex
The executive, who cornea from Aspen,
one of the leading eilver mining camps
in the atate, confined his remarks to the
question of silver and its demonetize
tion, and to those in the east and
Europe who were not only the ruin of
the west, but the entire country, by
forcing such a policy, and concluded by
"If the money power shall attempt to
sustain its usurpation by a strong hand,
we will meet that iseue when it iB forced
upon us, for it is infinitely better tbat
blood should flow to the horses' bridles,
rather than that our national liberties
be destroyed. If it is time that the
United States is unable to carry out its
governmental policy without the dicta
tion or consent of foreign powers; if we
sre a province of a European monarchy,
then we need another revolution; an
other appeal to arms, and we have won
that battle. If war ia forced upon na, vqe
wiW send to Halifax a far greater army
of British tories, according to our popu
lation, than our forefathera sent there
after the revolutionary war. Tbe war
has begun. It is tbe same war which
mnst always be waged against oppres
sion and tyranny to preserve the liber-
Uus of man."'
The address created a eensation, and a
scene of great confusion followed, tbe
applause being deafening.
Judge Kerr of Pueblo got the floor and
spoke in the same inflammatory vein as
Governor Waite. He endorsed the re
cent revolutionary telegram sent east, in
which it was declared tbat if the war
upon silver continued it would result in
tho west repudiating all her obligations;
that 150.000 men would be paupers,
500,000 people on the verge of starvation,
and revolution would be the final re
It was then moved that the conven
tion endorse the remarks of Governor
Waite. The motion was carried amid
the greatest enthnsiasm. The conven
tion adjourned until tomorrow,when the
committee on resolutions will report.

THE BOMBARDMENT BEGUN.
Rio Grade do Bui, Brazil, Attacked by
Land and Sea.
Valparaiso, July 11. —Dispatches from
Bio Grande do Sul, Brazil, via Monte
video, Gays an assault was made up
on tbe town from land and sea
by tbe revolutionary forces. "When
the news of the admiral's arrival
on board the steamship Jupiter spread
in the town, tbe citizens were terror
stricken. They feared an immediate
attack. Many abandoned their homes
and sought refuge in the country.
Admiral Wandelkok postponed the
bombardment until the arrival
of the insurgent land forces under
General Saravia, the preconcerted
plan being to begin the assault
from land and sea at the same time.
Meantime the rebel admiral's force was
increased by tbe crew and officers of the
gunboat Oamocan, whe declared in
favor of the revolutionists and put the
vessel nnder his command. The presi
dent's towboat Manuel Diablo, while
trying to enter the harbor, was fired
upon from the gunboat Oamocin. (general
Saravia's battalions began massing beck
of tbe town yesterday morning, and
last night the bombardment opened.
The result of the fight is not known,
because the government officers in Rio
Grande do Sul seized the telegraph
offices and refused to allow messages to
be sent south.
Ravaged by Yellow Fever.
Philadelphia, July 11.—The British
schooner Mystery, Captain Elliott,
manned only by a crew of four men, ex
hausted and worn out from over work,
put into Delaware breakwater today,
with colors at half mast. The other
members of the crew had succumbed to
the ravages of yellow fever, which broke
out on board when tbe vessel waa almost
1000 milea distant from land.

New Complications Arisen That Hay

French Admiral in High
Pt. Jonus, N. F., July 11.—This col
ony is threatened with more serious
complications arising out of the shore
question. The French flag ship Naide,
Admiral Elamornaix, arrived Saturday
to participate in tbe anniversary of the
establishment of the French republic,
and also to arrange the recent difficulty
over the French shore. A few weeks ago
French lobster packers imported large
quantities of trade ign (dement*, on which
they re.used to pay dnty, claiming the
gooda were exempt. The Newfoundland
government seized tbe goods and sold
them at auotion. The French admiral
yesterday demanded the return of the
goods. The governor refused, and
the admiral gave until 5 o'clock in
the afternoon for a final answer.
None arriving, he hoisted anchor and
left port, refusing to attend a dinner ar
ranged in his honor and a ball. The
British flagship Cleopatra also came
here to receive the Naide. The Cleo
patra's officers are indignant at the ac
tion of the French admiral, who threat
ened all sorts of terrible things. Admi
ral Elamornaix has gone to St. Pierre to
report to the government. Then he will
sail to the French shore. The Cleo
patra awaits instructions from Eugland
and will then follow the Naide. It is
believed tbe matter will result in con
siderable friction, possibly an outbreak,
when the two war-shipß meet.

A SCENE IN THE COMMONS
Irish Members Deliberately
Thomas Sexton Resents the

Uproar—Gladstone at Length Ponrs
Oil on the Troubled
By the Associated press.
London, July 11.—The commons, in
committee, continued tnis evening the
discussion of clause 9 of the home rnle
bill. This clause concerns the question
of Irish representation at Westminster.
Henry Sexton Karr, Conservative,
moved that the Irish members of the
imperial parliament be elected by the
constituencies which would elect the
Irish legislative council. Under this
amendment the Irish In the house of
commons would number 48, instead of
80, aa proposed by the bill.
John Morley, chief secretary for Ire
land, replied that the proposal was based
on no prinpiple of government, but was
the result merely of a desire to curtail
tbe Irish representation in the houae,
and could not be accepted by the gov
Sir Richard Temple, Conservative, for
the Kingston division of Surrey, said
even 48 Irish members would be too
William Brodrick, Conservative, for
the Guildford division of Surrey, agreed
with Sir Richard that the Irish were
both impecunious and garrulous, and
therein lay two reasons for reducing the
representation in the house to a min
Thomas Sexton, anti-Parnellite, for
North Kerry, interrupted Brodrick to
say Buch language waa grossly imperti
nent and ought not to be tolerated in
the house. The Unionists shouted
"withdraw" and the Irish cheered.
Lord Randolph Churchill suggested
that Sexton withdraw his words, as
Broderick's were not intended for him
The chairman told Sexton that he was
out of order and must withdraw his ex
pressions concerning Brodrick's speech.
Sextou expressed a willingness to
obey the chairman in case Brodrick
first expressed regret.
Timothy Healy, anti-Parnellite, for
North Louth, said hs regarded Sexton's
attitude as quite justifiable. To call the
Irish race impecunious and garrulous
was to insnlt every Irish member who
stood by his countrymen.
The Irish cheered, the Unionists
shouted protests, and for two or three
minutes the house waa in an uproar.
Gladstone spoke a few words in favor
of the chairman's decision, but added
that the person striking the first blow
onght to make the first overtures for
Balfour, leader of the Unionists, said
that, acting under bis advice, his honor
able friend (Brodrick) refused to apolo
\ The chairman turned appealingly to
"I am willing to do anything consist
ent with my duty to please tbe prime
minister," Sextou said, "but consider
ing the gravity of the insult offered my
countrymen, I have decided not to make
an apology. I submit myself to tbe
judgment of the committee."
Loud cheers greeted the statement.
Tbe chairman hesitated and finally
ordered Sexton to withdraw. Sexton
shouted back : "Such a course iB unpre
cedented. Why am I not named and
my conduct submitted to tbe house?"
Irish cheers, Unionist shouts and cries
of "Divide" followed this challenge.
Tbe chairman pulled himself together
and repeated hie order that Sexton with
draw. Sexton again refused. The Irish
cried "Don't withdraw."
The chairman then explained the
standing order concerning tbe suspen
sion of members disregarding the au
thority of tbe chair. 'The lust words
wero almost taken from hie mouth by
Timothy Healy, who exclaimed: "Thiß
is a shame; it never was done before."
The uproar then became terrible.
Gladstone appealed to Sexton to obey
the chairman. Sexton replied, with
evident reluctance, that he would leave
his defense with the prime minister.
As he retired the Iriah jumped to the
benches, waved their hats and cheered
After Brodrick withdrew his statement
that the Irish were garrulous and impe
cunious and order was restored, Sexton-
Karr's amendment, which had been
quite lost to view in tbe hubbub, waa
rejected by a vote of 251 to 210.
Snbsequently, on a motion to adjourn,
Timothy Healy appealed to Speaker
Feel against Chairman Mellor's treat
ment of Sexton. Tbe speaker, however,
supported Mellor's decision.

Chicago, July 11.—Whltelaw Eoid,
ex-minister to France, who, with his
family, has been seeing the world'a fair
for some days past, was caught by a re
porter just as he was starting back: for
New York. Beid expressed great de
light with the fair, saying it surpasses
any world's fair previously held in many
particulars. Its buildingß are superior;
its novel, picturesque effects far surpass
all previous efforts; in fast, it in perfec
tion in all respects.
Reid was aaked if be had read ex-Sen
ator Ingalls' criticism of his candidacy
for vice-president. "No," said Reid with
a laugh, "but you know I was not in
favor of that nomination myßelf, so prob
ably the ex-senator and I wouldn'tdiffer
The reporter thought they might, and
showed Reid passages wherein Ingalls
sneered at him as "uxorious" and an
"aristocrat," and objected* to his dress,
manners and ways, and Bpoke of his
"supercilious" insults to laboring men.
"That," said lieid, with more serious
ness, "is absurd. I bave been a labor
ing man myself far more than lugalla
ever was, and he would probably be
puzzled to specify any insult, super
cilious or otherwise, I ever offered to
labor, or to any honest laboring man.
All this talk about hostility to the na
tional ticket last year on account of a
15-year-old strike, which was set
tled to tbe satisfaction of tbe
labor unions, is sheer clap-trap
any way. There never were thousands
of votes affected by it in New York,
even then it waß an open question. To
say that after it was settled to their en
tire satisfaction, the labor uuionß still
carried it into politics, ia to accuse tbem
not merely of bad faith, but systematic
violation of their own cardinal princi
ples, and thua offering them tbe grossest
insults. Uf course our opponents made
a great hubbub about it, but the most
of those whom they claim were influ
enced, were already on their side. I
doubt if Powderly or any other equally
reputable and responsible labor leader
will Bay that the question turned a
thousand labor votes in the United
States last fall. Certainly it did not
turn one where a single rifle shot at the
Carnegie works turned thousands."
"What about uxoriousnoss and aris
tocracy?" urged the reporter.
"Oh, pshaw," said Reid; "whoever
heard before of a rational man attack
ing a candidate becauae he was decently
fond of his wife? The rest of Ingalls'
complaint seems to be that in other
particulars also I act like a gentleman.
Well, out in Kansas they surely didn't
bring that accusation against him,"
added Reid. "When he was last a can
didate, although he abandoned bis sup
posed principles and crawled in the
dirt before tbem, Mrs. Lease and Mr.
Peffer thrust him into the gutter and he
has been lying theie ever since, spout
ing mud and bad lunguage."

of guessing? He seems to lack employ
ment since he was thrown out of office
holding and I suppose the man mast
make a living by lecturing or writing
for syndicates. We have dozens of such
statesmen out of a job applying to us
for work after every election, and I
fancy your paper has the same experi
ence," and with a cheriy good-bye the
New York editor swung into a car and
started for his train.

THE CENTKR OF A'i'TItACTION.
The center of attraction at tho world's
fair this morning was something not

Early thia morning the remains of
three more unfortunates were recovered
from the ruins, so badly charred ac to
make recognition impossible, though it
is not Relieved they are bodies of fire
men, owing to the locality in which
they were found, being some distance
from the deadly smokestack around
which the imperilled liromen huddled
in the cupola balcony, and covered with
a masa of twisted steam pipes and ma
chinery which had fallen from above.
From the fact that one of the bodies
had on a leather belt carrying pincers,
it is believed the victim wab an electrio
HOW MANY PERISHED.
Thia discovery opena up tho -question,
how many persons besides tha firemen
lost tneir lives in the burned building?
The Columbian guards on duty at tbe
scene during the fire have constantly
maintained that several world's fair vis
itors and electrical employes and other
workers were caught in the dames, and
today's discoveries lend color to their
contention. It is certain that a number,
of visitors and workmen were in the
building at the time the fire broke out.
It has therefore been dec ded to make a
minute examination, foot by foot, as
rapidly aa possible. The Electric Light
company had a number of men in the
lower part of the building stringing wires
when tho fire broke out, and several pi
these are still missing. Four Colombian
guards are Btill unaccounted for.
At leaet one hundred people who have
missing relatives or friends were round
the ruina thia morning trying to identify
the bodies discovered. In numerous in
stances those are world's fair viaitors
. whose lriends do not evan know they
were in tne neighborhood of the build
ing, and it ia therefore most probable
that they will turn up aafe.
Many inquiries bave come from Spring

were unrecognizable. Freeman ouly en
