Statement Given Out Cold By
cS Senator Marion
Action of the Convention De
S manded By the People
Butler of the Opinion That Sewall
1 Kovr the One Man In the Coun
S try Vlio Has i in His Power to
Completely Unify the Silver Fore
en and Make the Rout of the Gold
hues Certain
ST LOUIS July 26Almost all the
delegates to the national Populist and
silver conventions which met in this
conventons iI
city last eelt have left for their
homes and nobody remains except a
few of the leaders of both parties
A majority of the delegates went
out In last nights trains and others
i at various times today
S Among those who are still here are
exChairman Taubeneck and exSec
retary Turner of the Populist national
exccutivrt committee who will remain
S long enough to close up the headquar
ters and transact whatever business
they may have in regard to conven
tion matters with the Business Mens
league Chairman Butler and Secre
tary Edgerton the new officers of the
S Populist national committee appointed
last week and a majority of the
members of the committee are still
at the Lindell hotel They held > a
meeting today but little else than to
aalK over the situation was done
S Of the silver national committee
Chairman Lane and ViceChairman
i Stevens are still in the city as is also
S G W Thompson a member of the
S notification committee
I has not yet been decided when
or where
of their nomination as standardbear
ers by the new Silver party Messrs
Lane Stevens and Thompson will meet
S tomorrow to confer in regard to this
matter and some action will probably
be taken then as to the time and
place An executive committee of the
silver party has not yet been appoint
E ed and until the headquarters have
been established this will not be done
S Organizer Kenney of California has
been recommended for a position on
t the Democratic executive committee
k and will probably be appointed
I A rumor got out today to the effect
r5 that the Populists
their candidate for vicepresident i
Sewall did not himself withdraw
A representative of the Associated
Press called upon Senator Marion
Butler and ask him why if his party
desired a union of the silver forces
t did they nominate another candidate
for vicepresident Because he
said we found that by so doing our
i party organization could be better pre
Y served in support of Mr Bryan than
by the nomination of Mr Sewall
Does not this selection lead to much
Oh yes but it was our only alter
Will the Democratic and Populist
committees make some arrangements
to unite their vote
The two party organizations will
S be kept entirely separate and distinct
ana the two campaigns will be con
S ducted separately on parallel lines bu
we hope TO vote and be united
I is hoped that Mr Watson will b
withdrawn 1
This will not be done The selec
r tion of Mr Watson was a deliberate
z action by the overwhelming vote and
voiced the sentiment of
who themselves had deliberated upon
S the situation since the Chicago con
S vention The Peoples party in its
desire to unify the reform forces so as
to make victory possible met the
Democratic party more than half way
iy taking their candidate for presi
dent We could not unite upon Mr
f Sewall and i we had attempted to do
8 it would have disorganized our
t own forces and endangered the elec
f lion of Mr Bryan It is in no wisp
S a reflection upon Mr Sewall and we
S do not believe that he or his friends
i will so consider it On the contrary
we hope that he is patriotic enough to
put the success of the cause and the
j welfare of the country above personal
interests or Inspirations In short Mr
Sewall is the one man in the United
States who has i in his power to com
pletely unify the silver forces and
make victory over the gold combine
absolutely certain This Is the unani
mous opinion of our executive com

George V Washbum of Massachu
set member of the Populist national
committee stated tonight when asked
if Massachusetts would be carried by
the free silverites
The free silver movement In my
state has always been underestimated
but I think a majority of Its citizens
are for the white metal I cannot
however estimate what the vote for
Bryan at the coming election will aggregate
gregate S
When G F Williams returned from
the Chicago convention where he was
the only Massachusetts delegate to ad
vocate free silver there was a demon
stration in his honor that the Boston
Globe declared to have been the
This is a indication of the feeling
there Williams will be the candidate
for governor on the free silver ticket
and while Massachusetts has never
been carried by the Democrats in a
presidential year we think he stands
a good show for ejection
Candidates for congress will also
be put up in each district but the
greatest fight will be for Bryan
A meeting of the Populist national
executive committee will be held to
morrow H E Taubeneck and W H
Turner the retiring chairman and sec
retary respectively will alsi be pres
ent to close up whatever business re
mains unfinished and turn the affadrs
over to the new committee The mat
ter of notifying the nominees of the
convention will come up at the meeting
of the committee which will probably
decide as to the time and place
GIvcM His Reasons
NEW YORK July 26The World
j I this morning publishes the following
j j signed dispatch from Thomson Ga
I i signed Thomas E Watson
j I To the questions asked me I reply
as follows
1 1 will run the race to the end
2 I will make the fight even if Sew
all does not withdraw
3 My opinion of the Fiftysecond
congress which was arraigned in my
book has undergone no change
4 I a not a political trader and
will nOt resign in Sewalls favor even
if offered a cabinet position
Having answered your questions
please allow me to state briefly my
reasons for the replies to questions
Nos 1 and 2
I allowed the use of my name to
save my party from extinction
In my opinion the continued exist
ence of the Peoples party is indispen
sible to the success of free silver For
me to withdraw would be for me to
sign the death warrant of my party I
Ours is the party for free silver and
I we maintained that principle while the
Democratic party in 18U2 and 1893 was j
making war upon it We do not think
our party should now close up and qult
business simply because the Democrats
have partially duplicated our sign
I the Democrats are so unreason
able a to refuse us Populists of the
south any recognition at all that fact
would show that the real purpose of the
apparent adoption of our principles is
t kill our party and not to enact those
principles Into law
I Democrats are sincere they will
not try tt put upon us such terms that
VCr man in our party at the south
will feel insulted and humiliated
If Mr Bryan di not want our sup
port Senator Jones had no business at
SL Louis at all I Mr Bryan does
want our support he ought to be will
Ing to adopt the policy which will most
certainly assure him that support and
that policy is to accept a a running
mate a southern Populist named by the
unanimous voice of the Populist na
tional convention Our party has gone
t the extreme limit of generosity in
the effort to procure a union of the
silver forces We did not claim first
the national ticket We
place on na1iona tcket are
content with the second I

I God I consider that we are a blessed
people and can most sincerely rejoice
He goes and another comes and Gods
work still goes on
God is peiUorming his work well A
great host have now left this church
and kingdom and gone to the spirit
world to prepare for the return of
Jesus when he will come in the clouds
of heaven to reward every man ac
I cording to his deeds in the body
God bless the father and brothers
and sisters of Abraham Cannon They
I are a great family Gods blessings
have been oyer them
The hymn O My Father was
I sung by R C Easton
President Joseph F Smith delivered
I the closing sermon I feel he said
more than ordinarily touched in my
heart with the loss we have sustained
in the death of one of our number who
has been so active so energetic so
full of wisdom and intelligence
We have nothing to mourn for in
the death of Brother Cannon because
as it has been remarked all is well
with him I would be impossible for
me to give a history of his life and
character and it would be unnecessary
for me to attempt i for his life has
been an open book before the people
to be read by them for many years
to come I believe that his course has
been acceptable to all who have known
him and to all who have been inter
ested in his life and that it has been
especially acceptable to God He has
truly fought the good fight and kept
the faith and there is assuredly laid
up for him a crown of glory He is
worthy to be numbered among the
great and good ones who have dwelt
in the flesh and whose lives have been
sacrificed not only for his ow ad
S vancement but for the advancement
and good and exaltation of the people
S for he has labored for the good of all
I men
I His writings the fruits of his labors
j which may be seen in the Juvenile In
S structor and in the publication of the
various works of the church will live
ever after him andi bye and bye we
will realize more and more the worth
of the labor and the sacrifice of this
young man and we will see bye and
bye the fruits of his labor where to
j day they are but partially apparent
We will feel strongly the loss of his
cooperation and his presence and
assistance in the great labor in which
he was engaged from an early period
of his life He was but a young man
only 27 years of age and has been
associated in the ministry for a long
time in comparison to the length of
his life For some eight years he was
associated with the first seven presi
dents of the seventies and since he
was chosen from that quorum to be as
sociated with the quorum of the
twelve apostles he has devoted every
capacity both in writing and preach
ing to the people to the fulfilment
of the mission whereunto he was
The Lord says to the peopl in Tils
revelations Behold mine house Is
a house of order saith the Lord God
and not a house of confusion Will I
accept of an offering saith the Lord
which is not made in my name or
will I receive at your hands that
which I have not appointed and will
I I appoint unto you saith the Lord
except I be by law even as I am by
I my Father ordained unto you before
the world was I am the Lord thy
God and I give unto you this com
mandment that no man shall come
unto the Father except by me or by
my word which is my law saith the
Lord And everything that is in the
world whether it be ordained of men
by thrones or principalities or powers
whatsoever they may be if they are
not 5 > y me or by my word saith the
I Lord shall be thrown down and shall
j not remain 1 f < for whatsoever
things remain are by me and what
j soever things are not by me shall be
I shaken and destroyed
I I read these few words in order that
j the ground upon which we stand may
be seen by those who are assembled
here this afternoon We acknowledge
i nothing that is I not ordained of God
and that is not commanded of him
We do not acknowledge the right
and the power of men to administer in i
the ordinances of the house of God or
in the gospel of Jesus Christ except as
they are ordaitied of God end appointed
by him through his voice or through
the voice of his angels or ministering
spirits to administer in the ordinances
of the house of God and to proclaim
the gospel of life and salvation to the
gos lfe
children of men
This is the testimony which was borne s
in his lifetime by Elder Abraham H
Cannon He has received that which
he ha obtained and the authority by
which he acted here was not his but
it was Gods authority delegated unto
him He acted in the name of God
and through the authority of the holy
priesthood I want to bear this testi
ninny to you because I know it to be
the truth and that is the principle 11
which will make men
Therefore what Brother Cannon has
received is of God and i will not have
an end now that he is dead He shall
keep it throughuut all the countless
ages of eternity The priesthood hej
possessed was given him for time as
pssese weB a eternity fo that which God
gives is an eternal gift The priesthood
was given to him to magnify an he
did not bury it i in the earth burt PUt
it to usury and gained other talents
thereby He has gained the reward of
Brother Cannbns family was receiv
ed by him at the hands 01 God When
they were joined to him it was for time
ard eternity The holy ties that binds
fathers to their children and children
to their fathers and wives to their
husbands are eternal ties They are
ties which man was created to enjoy
He was ordained by the voice of God
God has spoken in the clay in which we
live and there is no man or woman of
Intelligence who may not come tt > a
knowledge of the faithfulness of this
saying so that they can say a I say
I know that my Redeemer lives and I
know that he shall stand upon the
earth in the latter day and that he has
spoken from the heavens and restored
the everlasting gospel
Brother Cannon was faithful in that
glorious work He was united with his
brethren and united with God You
found him always full of intelligence
full of counsel full of wisdom and full
of love and charity and long suffering
And yet his heart was as the heart of
a little child in the presence of God
and in the presence of his brethren He
never attempted to wield force or to
bring up contention by argument His
weapons were kindliness and persua
sion He spoke the truth as it welled
it beamed from
up In his soul and as beame
him like rays of intelligence from the
eternal world He sought to prevail up
on others in this spirit of kindness and
But he did
of reason to see the truth
not contend with them He was con
tent to set forth the truth as i1 was
inspired wihin him and leave the rest
In the hands of God
I have never known him to be In the
wrong I have been associated with
him for many years both in the quo
rum o apostles and in a business way
and he has always sought to gain his
ends by pure intelligence and wisdom
with which he y as endowed to a mar
velous extent for a man of his years
I feel therefore in his death n loss
to myself I feel that the community
ha lost a great and wise counsellor a
man of God a man of truth a man
fearless when duty called him a man
who was not afraid to meet the conse
quences of hisown acts
I feel that we have done him wrong
I feel that I have contributed to doing
him wrong in that he was willing and
capable and because he was s we
I have put upon bins burdens we our
selves should have borne We have
weighed him down with these labors I
and responsibilities that have been j I
heaped upon him and we have come I
to a realization of this too late
While I believe in the providence of
God first yet I believe this too that I
men may be crowded beyond their I
strength and endurance Men may I I
I have responsibilities placed upon them I I I
I calculated to crush them down and i
bring j them t premature death
I believe this and yet I am willing I I i
to acknowledge the hand o God in
this providence and I say thy will
0 Lord be done in this as in all other j
things for he as well all of
things wel al us are
I in his hands
I rejoice in my acquaintance with
him I am proud of my associations
I with him Although I am twenty
years his senior yet I deferred to his
wisdom and the strength of his mind
and the strength of his character and
I have often drawn encouragement
and energy to myself from his example
and from his labors and they have
been a tower of strength to me
I thank God that we have had
Brother Abraham Cannon I thank God
that he was called to the ministry I
thank God that he has always main
tained his integrity and that he has I
gone home to the father of light un i
sullied and undefiled He went there
with the testimony of the truth rooted
and grounded in his soul
I would to God that all the young
men of ZIon would emulate his Exam
ple and show as he has done the fruits
O industry in which he excelled all i i
God bless his kindred Bless them I
that they may live a he did and fin
ally meet him again in the eternal man
sions prepared for the faithful There
are purer hopes purer joys and pleas
ures there than here for in that other
sphere men will see as they are seen
and know a they are known

I Is seldom one finds a leader of fash
ion among the royal women of Europe
Not a few of them are notable for a dis
regard of fashions decrees and many
others are content to follow th lead of
others Some of them have fads in gar
met as for instance Queen Sophia o
Sweden who is a member of the Salva
tion Army and affects th style of r
meat peculiar to that organization
Quean Emma o the Netherlands makes
no pretensions whatever about dress and
the most familiar portraits of her daugh
ter Queen Wilhelmina show us a simple
figure in the native dress of HoUandi
The dress of Queen Hfenriette of BeJsium
has always been simple The emprtss o
Germany to is another instance of a
royal lady who has little or nO influence
on the fashions of her country
In England the princess o Wales and
her daughters are striking instances of
women o royal blood who have not only
not led the raton but they have not
even followed I the most striking proof
being afforded in the fact that they have
never adopted the enormous developments
of the puffed sleeves which have
o pufed sleeve whi been in
vogue for some tlms In fact a exami
nation of the portraits of the prince of
Wales ciiarmdng consort will show that
during the Jas fifteen years at any rate
the cut of her dresses ha scarcely va
red at all For carriage dresses and
gonms t be worn a any daylight func
tions the shape known a the Princess
has always been adhered to the toilet
being invariably s off by those dainty
little bonnets which bear no name no
one having ever mao her royal highness
coiffed by what are known a picture
bar Her evening dresses although
the texture and trimmings may vary
display the same constancy a regards
cart while the favorite attire of the prin
cess and her daughters on ordinary occasions
casions has been the sImples of tailor
made frocks and jackets without e
brcidaries or garniture
Identically the same thing may be said
of Vhs widowed czarina of Russia whose
tastes in all matters concerning dress iru
nowise differs from those of her sister
th princess of Wales Indeed it would
b Impossible to conceive anything more
simple in the shape of toilet than the
entirely plain black or dark blue tailor
made gown which the empress has been
wearing for nearly two decades past
Her daughterinlaw the young czarina
shares the same ideas and having been
partly brought up either in England or
among English surroundings her Ideas
with regard to dress are thoroughly British

Thy sweet clear notes are heard no mora
And hushed the strains I loved so well
Companion of my lonely hours
Thy silvery chords have bid farewell
Still fond remembrance clings to thee
And thought flies back to happier days
When near to thee were those dear friends
Who loved to list to thy sweet lays
A valued relic of the past
I oft times sit and view thee still N
And think of those who taught me first A
Thy soft melodious notes to fill w
A grateful messenger of love
Friendships ofTring ever dear
Thou still recallest that glad hour
That I remember with a tear
A gentle hand too joined my own
To rob thee of some merry strain
Alas that gentle hand no more
Will strike those joyous chords again
Far far away my native home
Where dwelt the cherished of my heart
Sweet lyre thou bringst them back to me
From thee affections neer can part
j Methinks at night when all things sleep
Tiv rnnsc wafts my dreams on high
S Entrancing every sense with joy
j n tame aeonan melody
S But sient now thy soothing tone
I And snapped the strings 1 loved so well
Thy requiem floats upon the breeze
I Thy silvery chords hath bid farewell

There are two kinds of people on earth
I Just two kinds of people no more I say
j Not the humble and proud for In lifes
little span
Who puts on vain airs is not counted a S
Not the happy and sad for the swift fly
ing years S
Bring each man his laughter and each
man his tears
No the two kinds of people on earth I
Are the people who lift and the people
who lean
Wherever you go you will find the worlds
Are always divided in just these two
And oddly enough you will find too I
There is only one lifter to twenty who
In which class are you Are you easing
the load
Of overtaxed lifters who toil down the
Or are you a leaner who lets others bear
Your portion of labor and worry and care
Ella Wheeler Wilcox l
Lone dweller by the lonely lake
Remote among our northern hills
Round wooded shores thy loud cries wake
The sleeping echoes rudely break
The singing of the rills
Thou host the storm a welcome guest
At thy home by the waters edge
j The waves may plash about thy breast
I May playful lift and rock thy nest
Built on the reedy sedge
Thou art a ruler in good right
Strong master of ail inds that blow
Thy wings outstrip the stormclouds
Thy swimming is the swallows flight
I Seen In the depths below
Thou sitteoi with a sovereign grace
S The broken waters of the pond
I And quicker than the eye can trace
Hast shifted to another since
A good half mile beyond
Ah said those loud demoniac cries
Borne on the startled listening air
As if from nether world did rise
j In agony to earth and skies
An > outburst of despair
Proud Is thy mate as side by side
Ye cleave the air with whizzing wing
Your brood that patiently abide
At home repolce your forms descried
Those wCld notes heard to ring

I thought myself indeed secure
So fat the door so firm the lock
But lo he toddling comes to lure
My parent ear with timorous knock
My heart were stone could it withstand
The nweetness of my babys plea
That timorous baby knocking and
fiease let me inas only me
I threw aside the unfinished book
Regardless of its tempting charms
And opening wide the door 1 took
My laugaing darling In my arms
Who knows but In eternity
I like a truant child shall wait
The glories at a life to be
Beyond the Heavenly fathers gate
And will that Heavenly Father heed
The truants supplicating cry
As at the outer door I plead
Tie I O Father only I
