SILVER'S FRIENDS GAIN A VICTORY, Michigan Republicans in the White Metal Column. HARD STRUGGLE WON. Financial Plank in the Minne apolis Platform Given an Indorsement DEPEW'S WARNING IN VAIN. v»i's the Convention the Party Must Deciare for "Sound" Money or Fall. DETROIT, Mich., May 7.— The Michi gan Republican State Convention to-day elected four delegates at large and alter nates to the Republican National Conven tion, two Presidential electors at large, Presidential electors representing the twelve Congressional districts of the State and a new chairman of the State Central Committee, Hon. D. M. Ferry of Detroit. The convention instructed its delegates at large to vote for McKinley so long as his name should remain before the St. Louis convention. The features of the convention were the address of Hon. Chauncey M. Depew, who dropped in on the delegates unexpectedly a.nd made a ringing speech, and the vic tory of the silver men in forcing the adop tion of tue financial plank of the Minne apolis convention of 1892. Tne "nara money" men had control of the commit tee on resolutions, there being but two ad vocates of the white metal in it. The mi nority, however, brought the fleht which they had been unable to settle in commit tee into the convention. They declared that the convention should at least reaf firm the plank of the last National Repub lican Convention, and on this basis they won their light after battling for an hour. When Chairman A. W. Smith of the State Central Committee called the con vention to order at 12:30 o'clock this after noon, he announced that he had a sui pnse in store for the delegates, and pro ceeded to introduce Hon. Ghauncey M. .Depew of New York, who had been in duced to stop off while passing through tlie city with his party and make an art dress, to the convention. Mr. Depew was received with wild en- I thusiasm by the delegates and spectators, ! and made a speech which kept the aud ience laughing and cheering alternately for half an hour. He said that he had traveled through the so-called silver States and talked with many persons on the issues of the d*y, and everywhere tho statement was made that they must have free coinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1, hut with it th<iy niu^t have protection or they could not live. He declared that if the Republican Na tional Convention did not declare for sound money unequivocally, the great States of New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Massachusetts, which are all now as soundly .Republican as Michigan, will be put by that act in the doubtful column. He referred to the statesmen whose names are now before the public. As he mentioned Allison, Morton and Reed in turn there was moderate applause. As McKinley's name fell from the speaker's lips there was a spontaneous rising of the delegates in a burst of wild applause which lasted a couple of minutes. As the tumult died away one of the dele pates shouted, "How do you like that, Mr. Depew?" "When it comes to the vote, Michigan will have but thirty- two," was the ready response. At the close of Depew's address he was given three rousing cheers. The platform adopted tc-day favors the re : enuctment of the McKinloy bill and the restoration of reciprocity. The McKinley and money planks read as follows: We are united in favor of the nomination of William McKinley of Onio by the Republican party for the office of the President of the United States, and hereby instruct the dele * gates selected at this convention to u^e all honorable means to tecure his nomination so long as his name is before the National Con vention. We are unyielding and uncompromising In our demand for sound money. We are in favor of the use of gold, silver and paper dol lars in our currency, all maintained at a parity a<= to purchasing and debt paying power. We are opposed to any proposition that involves the depreciation of any portion of our cur rency, and therefore are opposed to the free and unlimited coinage of silver by this coun try alone under present conditions, believing that 6uch coinage would destroy the parity and depreciate and contract the currency. S. W. Hopkins, on behalf of the minor ity of the committee on resolutions, said that the Republican National Convention •in 1892 had stood for bimetallism and de clared that trie financial plank in the rnajoritv report just presented put the party hack to Clevelandism and bond ism. He said this country must not bow to the powers across the ocean, and if this con yen tion favored the policy of gold and bonds we have no place in the Republican party. Referring to that part of the ad dress of Hon. Chauncpy M. Depew in which that distinguished gentleman said that if the Republican party did not de clare for gold New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Connecticut would be found in the doubtful column, the speaker asked : "Shall we bow to threats likt* that?" There were cries of ' # No, no," from all over the ball. Continuing, Mr. Hopkins said if the delegates would stand by the rights of the people the Republican party need not fear the !uss of these States, and moved the substitution of the following financial » plank for that in the majority report: The American people, from tradition and in terest, favor bimetallism, and the Republican party demands the use of both gold and silver as standard money, demands that all dollars, . bcthcr of gold, silver or paper, shall be of full f iimi j *f,/f gJlgb^LS^^^^^ te **=^'^j^-**^^A.rf ¥V legal tender, providing full and equal purchas ing and debt-paying power, thereby having a parity of value, and to that end we demand c purely American system of money based upon gold and silver without advantage to either at the mints of this Government. We demand that all paper money issued by the Government shall be redeemable in gold or silver at the option of the Government. We are opposed to the retiring of the green backs, the money of the people, the savior of the Union, the money favored by Lincoln. A hot debate followed, which lasted for an hour arM which was only ended by Delegate Crissey of Midland moving that the financial plank of the Minneapolis platform of 1892 be substituted for both the majority and minority reports on the subject. This was received with favor and the substitute was adopted and then the resolutions as amended went through with a rush, and the silver men raised a mighty cheer over their victory. HARRISON STATS AWAY. The Ex- President Modestly Declines to Influence Jndiana's Convention. INDIANAPOLIS. Ind., May 7.— William McKinley of Ohio had everything his own way in Indiana to-day. The hope of his opponents lay in the expectation that ex- President Harrison would address the convention this morning and create such a whirl of enthusiasm for himself that the intention to instruct, so plainly shown in the district meetings the night before, would not prevail. Harrison, however, when a committee from the convention waited upon him this morning, politely declined the invitation without vouch safing his reason. One of his friends ex plains- it by declaring that he stayed away lest his action in attending should be con strued into an effort to influence the action of the convention. The instructions were contained in the platform. They were passed by a viva voce vote with probably about two-thirds of the convention voting for them and the other third giving voice to their op position with lusty lungs. This done, the convention proceeded to elect the dele gates at large by ballot. Ex-Secretary of the Navy H. W. Thompson, General Lew Wailace, C. W. Fairbanks and F. M. Milli ken were elected, the lirst two by accla mation and the others by ballot. The preliminary work thus finished the convention proceeded to the nomination of a State ticket, as follows: For Governor, James A. Mount of Mont gomery; Lieutenant-Governor, W. S. Hag gard ; Secretary of State, W. D. Owen ; Auditor, A. C. Daily; Treasurer, F. J. Scholz; Attorney-General, W. A. Ketch nni; Supreme Court Reporter, Charles F. Remy; Superintendent of Instruction, D. M. Geeting; Statistician, C. J. Thompson. On the currency question the platform says : We are unalterably opposed to every scheme that threatens to debase or depreciate our cur repcy. We favor the use of silver as currency, but to tht extent only and under such regula tions that its parity with gold can be main tained, and in consequence are opposed to the free, unlimited and independent coinage of sliver at a ratio of of 1U to 1. BRYAN CHALLENGES CARLISLE. The Secrrtnry Accused. of Tf* fending ' a Policy He Once Denounced. , ' ■-.- . OMAHA, Nemr., May 7.— Hon. W. J. Bryan to-day sent a challenge to Hon. John G. Carlisle, Secretary of the Treasury at Washington. In brief, Mr. Bryan says: "Yon have changed your position upon the paramount public issue, and are now de fending a financial policy which you once denounced. The advocate? of free and un limited coinage at 16 to 1 admit your opinion, but contend that you owe it to the public to answer the arguments which you yourself made in 1878 before attempt ing to answer the arguments of others. "Your record challenges you to join the debate. Will you accept? Are you will ing to take up your speech of 1878 and an swer it, one proposition at a time? If you are, you will silence those who doubt your sincerity and question your motives. If you are not willing to face your own argu ments and overcome them you cannot complain if your opponents adopt the philosophy of Shakespeare and attribute your cowardice to a guilty conscience." THAT CO NFENTION FUND. Chicago It Coin inn Vp Very Slowly With the $40,000. CHICAGO, 111., May 7.— The gnaran tors of the $40,000 subscription to the Democratic National Convention fund held a secret meeting this morning in the office of Chairman Donnersberger of tbe local committee to decide on a course of action looking to the collection of the money sub scribed, only $10,000 havine been paid. Ben T. Cable, the National Committeeman from Illinois, was present as the represen tative of Levi Z. Leiter. An encouraging view of the financial situation was taken, and one of the committee said the second $10,000 demanded by Chairman Harrity would be in hand to-morrow, when a meet ing of the subscribers would be held. The men who signed the guarantee are respon sible to the National Committee, and prominent Democrats laugh at the idea of the convention not being held here. SEW JERSEY DEMOCRATS. Commend ; Cleveland and Oppose Tree r \ '. Coinage at Any Ratio. : . TRENTON. N. J., May 7—The Demo cratic State Convention was called to order at noon. Assemblyman John W. Queen was made permanent chairman.. '"' ; The platform was then read and adopted without amendment. ' It is opposed to the free coinage of silver at any ratio and to the compulsory purchase of silver bullion by the Government ; opposes any changes in. the present tariff; favors liberal expen ditures for coast defenses; commends I resident Cleveland's administration: pledges allegiance to the Monroe doctrine and expresses sympathy with the patriots of Cuba in their struggle for victory. James Smith, Allan L. Mcliermott, Rufus. Blodgett and Albert P. Talluian were selected as delegates-at-large to the Chicago convention. COLORADO FOR SILVER. Republican* May Holt Unless the White •" Metal' Is Recognized. DENVER, Colo., May 7—From present indications Senator Wolcott's indifference will dominate tne State Republican Con vention which is to meet in Pueblo May 14 and that he will be sent to St. Louis along with delegates in harmony with his views. As a sop to the silver wing of the party Senator Teller will be named as one of the delegates, if he chooses to accept, but the sentiment of the leaders who ai> pear to have control of the party machine in Colorade will be to discountenance a bolt from the National, Convention in the event that silver is not recognized. There will be a lively right in the Pueblo conven tion, but from the reports, of county con ventions already held the Wolcott men SAN FRANCISCO, FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 8, 1896. HERE'S A GOOD TIME COMING. have been selected as delegates, and he will have a majority. D. H. Moffatt, president of the First National Bank of Denver, declares that be will take no hand in politics this year, but from all he can gather from men all over the State he thinks Colorado will vote next fall for a silver candidate for the Presidency, regardless of party. He fur ther stated .that Senator Wolcott is not in dorsed by the people of the State, while Teller's position is approved by a largs majority of the voters of Colorado. AH ne is now afraid of is that Colorado is to have another State administration by Populists or some similar irresponsible political crowd. SENATOR A LDRICH'S FIGURES. JUcKinley Seeds a Hundred Store Vote* to Gain a Majority. WASHINGTON, D. C, May 7.— The House showed more interest in the Indiana convention to-day than it did in the busi ness that came before it Congressman AJdrich of Illinois, who is an ardent cham pian of Speaker Reed, does not agree with the McKinley men that the indorsement of the Ohio candidate at Indianapolis to day definitely settles the matter. "Of course," said Mr. Aldrich, "it would be folly to say that it is not discouraging to have a number of States all in one week indorse McKinley. But by what author ity can any one say that McKinley will have a majority of the votes? According to Manley's estimate, made public last Monday morning, McKinley was then credited with 275 votes. Since then we concede that he has captured 14 in Cali fornia, 4 in Indiana, 6 in Michigan, 2 in Illinois and 10 in Missouri. That makes 36, does it not? Those added to the 275 we gave him increase his strength to 311. Now let us suppose, for the sake of argu ment, that he secures 14 more votes in Indiana in addition to the 12 which we have allowed h im. That makes 325. "It is not unlikely that Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Wyoming, all silver States, will throw their strength to Mc- Kinley. They have thirty-two votes, which will swell McKinloy's figures to 357. That leaves him 100 short of a majority. Now, where is he goiog to get the re mainder? "The contest is not settled by any means. It is still anybody's light." "Yon don't think, then, that the situ ation at the present time takes any of the candidates out of the race?" ••No, unless it be ex- President Harrison, and he, as is well known, is not a candi date. All the others, so far as I know, will continue to be in evidence." TENNENNER DEMOCRACTE. Declare for Free-Coinage Speaker Bit ted While draining Cleveland.

STUBBORN TO THE LAST He Died as if Entirely In different to His Awiul Fate. DECLARING HIS INNOCENCE. The Execution Passed Off Without Any Incidents of a Sensa tional Nature. PHILADELPHIA, Pa., May 7.—Her man W. Mudgett, alias H. H. Holmes, was hanged this" mornine in the County Prison for tne killing of Benjamin F. Pietzel. The drop fellatlO:l2o'cloctc, and twenty minutes later he was pronounced dead by the prison officials, Dr. Sharp and Dr. Batcher. The execntion was in every way entirely devoid of any sensational features. To the last Holmes was self-possessed and cool, even to the extent of giving a word of advice to Assistant Superintend ent Richardson as the latter -was arrang ing the final details. He died as ne had lived, unconcerned and thoughtless, ap parently, of the future, even with the rec ollection still vividly before him of the H. H. Holmes, alias Mudgett, the Arch Criminal of Modern History. Who Was Hanged Yesterday. recent confession in which he admitted the killing of a score of persons of both sexes in different parts of the country. Almost his last words were a point-blank denial of any crimes committed except the deaths of two women at his hands by mal practice. Of the murder of several members of tbe Pietzel family he denied all complicity, particularly of the father, for whose death he stated he was unjustly suffering the penalty. With the prayer of the spiritual attendants still sounding in his ears and with a few low-spoken words to those about him tbe trap was sprang. There were comparatively few persons gathered on the outside of the prison dur ing the eariy part of the morning and the morbid throng which the prison officials expected would be drawn there by the execution was lacking. Access to the prison prior to the entrance of those per mitted to witness the execution was not allowed. All the arrangements for the burial of Holmes were entrusted by the murderer to Mr. Rotan. The place of interment has, it is understood, been selected, but those who are most likely to know where the grave is to be will not divulge the iov-a tion. Holmes retired about midnight and slept soundly during the entire time until called at 6 o'clock this morning. So sound were his slumbers, in fact, that twice was he called before awauening. When the arrival of the Rev. Fathers Dailey and Me- Pake to administer the sacrament was an nounced he greeted them warmly, but witii no show of emotion. For nearly two hours they remained in the cell and then were succeeded by Lawyer Rotan, the le gal adviser of Holmes, who was also greeted pleasantly. There were several matters pertaining to Holmes' worldly af fairs that will yet have to be settled and this time was taken in giving the final de tails and explanations. While discussing his affairs breakfast was served, consisting of eggs, toast and coffee. When the raeal was ended, shortly be fore 9 o'clock, Holmes dressed himself in trousers, vest and cutaway coat of some dark mixed goods of a pepper and salt ef fect he aad worn frequently. At 10 o'clocK the doors leading to the long corridor in which was placed the gallows were opened and, two by two, led by the Sheriff's jury, the spectators passea down. The last man had just passed through the doors and the latter closed when from behind was heard the slow and measured tread of the death party. The suspense was almost painful, brief though it was, when, preceded by Sheriff Clements and Superintendent Perkins, Holmes appeared and stepped on the trap. On the right was Father Dailey, to the left Fat; er McPake, and behind them Lawyer Rotan and Assistant Superin tendent Richardson. The little party stood a moment looking down, and then, in response to a signal from one of those beside him, Holmes stepped forward. He spoke slowly and with measured attention to every word— a trifle low at first, but louder as he proceeded, until every woid was distinctly audible. "Gentlemen," he said, "I have very few words to say, in fact, I would make no statemeut at this time, except that by not speaking I may be made to acquiesce in my execution. I only want to say that the extent of my wrongdoings in the taking of human life consisted in the death of two women, they having died at my hands as the result of criminal opera tions. I wish to state also, however, so that there will be no misunderstanding here after, tnat I am not guilty of taking the lives of any of the Pietzel family, the three children or the father, Benjamin F. Piet zel, of whose death I am now convicted, and for which I am to-day to be hanged. That is all." As he ceased speaking he stepped back, and kneeling between Fathers Dailey and McPake, he joined with them in silent prayer for a minute or two. Again stand ing he sbook hands with all about him and then signified his readiness for the end. Holmes was the coolest of the wuole yiarty. He even went to the extreme of suggesting to Assistant Superintendent Richardson that the latter should not hurry himself. "Take your time; don't bungle it," Holmes remarked as the official exhibited some little haste, the outcome of nervous ness. These were almost his last words. The cap was adjusted, a low-toned query, "Are you ready?" and an equally low toned response, "Yes, good-by," and the trap was sprung. Holmes' neck was not broken, and there were a few convulsive twitches of the limbs that continued for about ten min utes. "But he suffered none after the drop," said Dr. Scott, the prison physi cian. The trap was sprung precisely at ]0:12)£, and fifteen minutes later Holmes was pro nounced dead, though the body was not cut down until 10:45. When ii was laid out on the stretcher occurred the only in cident approaching the revolting in con nection with the affair. The knot bad become jammed and the efforts of the doctors failed to loosen it as they attempted to remove the noose from about the neck. The head was twisted about from side to side in the attempt, and finally it was decided to cut the rope. Superintendent Perkins objected, however, and the knot was undone after several minutes of trying work. After the body had been viewed by the physicians and the manner of death dt termined the stretcher on whicn it lay was wheeled out of the corridor into the jail yard. Hero it was placed in an ordinary cheap pine coffin, wide enough and deep enough to have held two men of Holmes' size. The coffin was put aboard an under taker's wagon and conveyed to the Roman Catholic Cemetery of the Holy Cross. The only persons at the cemetery were the undertaker and his assistant, two grave-diggers, two watchmen and a couple of newspaper men. The little company acted as pallbearers, and carried the coffin to the receiving vault. The last act in tne receiving vault was performed at Holmes' express command. The lid of the coffin was taken off and the body was lifted out and laid on the ground. Then the bottom of tbe coffin was filled with cement. The body was then replaced in the coffin and covered with cement. It was Holmes' idea that this cement would harden around his body and prevent any attempt at grave robbery. The coffin was left in the receiv ing vault under the guard of two watch men, who will remain on duty all night. To-morrow afternoon the body will be in terred in a grave in the cemetery, and it is probable that at the time religious serv ices will be conducted by Father Dailey. Holmes made no will and left no con fession. This is according to Mr. Rotan. He says he knows Holmes made no will, and, while the murderer gave him this mornine a big bundle of papers, the law yer says that he is confident that these papers relate only to private business matters. A3 yet Mr. Rotan has had no opportunity to examine them. Mrs, Pietzel was seen after Holmes was hanged. All she could say, between her sobs, was that she was glad that he had received her just deserts, but that his death would not return to her her hus band or her children. Mrs. Pietzel will return to her home, at Galva, 111., next week. The two women referred to by Holmes in nis confession from the scaffold were Julia Connor of Chicago and Emily Cigrand of Anderson, Ind. HOLMES' MANY CRIMES. He Had a Ready "Confession" to Clear Himself of Ench. Herman W. Mudgett, better known as H. H. Holmes, was one of the most con spicuous criminals of modern times, and If the "murder confessions" which he has written can only partially be believed, he was without a peer as a bloodthirsty demon. His recent ingenious "confes sion," wherein he claimed to have killed twenty-seven persons, was disproved, partly, at least, by the appearance of sev eral of the so-called victims: but Holmes' object in making the "confession" was re alized — the obtaining of a sum said to be $7500 and which amount is said to have been settled upon the criminal's 18-year old son. While the "confessions" have served to increase the sensationalism of the case, the only capital crime for which Holmes had to answer was the killing in this city on September 2, 1884, of Benja min F. Pietzel, bis fellow-conspirator. The murder was committed in the dwell ing, 1316 Callowhill street. Holmes' con viction of murder in the first degree, the affirmation by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court of the verdict and the recent re fusal of Governor Hastings to grant a re spite, are so well known that a narration oJ these facts is unnecessary. Holmes was captured in Boston, Mass., in the latter part of 1894 by Owen Hans com. the Deputy Superintendent of upon the strength of a telegram from Fort Worth, Tex., where he was wanted for Continued on Second Page PRICE FIVE CENTS. BREAK FROM MADERA JAIL, Highwaymen Laverone and Roberts Overpower a Keeper. STRUGGLE IN THE DARK Jailer Wells Shoots Himself in an Encounter With the Pair. ONE OF THE BANDITS WOUNDED Accomplices Have a Horse ani Car* riage Wa ting for the Fugitives. MADERA. Cal., May 7.— William LaT erone and "Jack" Roberts, who were cap tured last week at a cave near Bates, after a stubborn fight had Been made on their part, and surrendered only after miners had drilled boles in the ground and were putting in giant powder with which to bring down upon them tons of earth and. bowlders, have escaped from the county jail. Ever since these two outlaws have been confined in the jail the officers have en deavored to use the utmost precaution to prevent their escape, as they were re garded as the most reckless ana daring criminals the jail has ever sheltered. The flimsiness of the prison bad been proven by the escaping of "Mormon Jimmy" Lawson, who at last succeeded in "getting permanent lodgings in the penitentiary after he had made three successful breaka for liberty. Howard Wells, the jailer of the county, has been locking the prisoners in one cell, while at nights he slept in the corridor. Richard Magoon, who is under arrest on a charge of muriiering "Jack' McGurk, oc cupied one of the cells, but the door from his cell into the corridor of the jail waa left open, as he is an old man and some what feeble. During the day the pris oners had dug almost entirely through tne partition-wall which separated them from Magoon, ana in the night, as soon as Wells was asleep, they finished cutting the hole in the wall and crawled through, into Magoon's cell, where they warned the old man to keep quiet or they would kill him. Roberts then took one of the loose bricks and went in to where Wells waa sleeping and struck him over the head wit a the brick. The jailer, though stunned, grappled with Roberts in the dark and attempted to overpower him. He bent the outlaw over the bed and, drawing his revolver, attempted to shoot him : but it was so dark that he shot him self through the hand and Roberts in the arm. The pistol was knocked out of Weils' hand, and, to prevent Roberts from getting it, he kicKed it under the bed, where it was found this morning. Laverone then came to the assistance of Roberts and the combined efforts of the two succeeded in overpowering the jailer, who was gradually growing weak and faint from the loss of blood, the wound in the hand bleeding profusely. When the prisoners succeeded in getting the keys from Wells they got his shotgun and SlO in money and then unlocked the outer door. Roberts held Wells uuder the cover of the shotaun, and in a few moments Laverone urove up in a buggy. Roberts got in and the two drove off in the dark ness. Mike McCluskey, who lives some dis tance from the jail, had heard the call 3 of "Wells, but he did not get to the jail until after the prisoners had escaped. He found Wells lying on the floor, where he had fainted from loss of Mood. McCius key gave tne alarm, and Welis was taken to a hotel and placed in the cafe of a doctor. He will be confined to his bed for some time. A posse was soon organized by Sheriff Westfall, and it has been out all night and to-day. The posse traced the buggy tracks north from town, across the Fresno River on to the plains, where the track was lost. The officers say that the escapes mu3t have had accomplices, for they are positive that they were not in possession of any tools with which they could have dug through the walls of their cells. Thisyiew is strengthened by the fact of Laverone procuring a horse and buegy so quickly after he eot out of the jail. The prelim inary examination of the bandits on the charge of robbing M. Ashley of $250 and a gold watch had been set for to-day. The officers believe that the prisoners headed for the foothills, as they know the ground well in the vicinity of Raymond. Dispatches have been sent in all direc tions, out so far this has resulted in noth ing. BLOODGOUNDS ENGAGED. Deputy Sheriff Timtnin* ana Hi» iWan- Hunter* Join the Chase. FRESNO. Cal,, May 7.— Deputy Sheriff L. P. Timmins left this evening forMadera with his three bloodhounds to take up the chase of Outlaws Laverone and Roberts. The Deputy Sheriff has raised the dogs from pups, and this is the first time that he has taken them into active service. He has trained the hounds diligently for some time, and expects considerable of them in the present chase. The dogs have been tried a number of times, and have been very successful in following trails. They will find the escapes and Timmins will do the fighting, if any is necessary. The re sults are looked forward to with great interest here. Sotable Wedding at Washington. WASHINGTON, D. C, May 7.— At the Venezuelan legation yesterday Misa Teresa, daughter of Minister Andrade, was married to Gustav Schlottman. Tbe guests included members of the diplo matic corps and many prominent officials. Before coming to Washington Minister Andrade was Governor of Maracaibo.
