All Ready for the Sound-
Money Convention at
Eminent Men From Nearly
Every State in the Union
Are Delegates.
The Florida Delegation Will Go to
the Convention With a Grover
Cleveland Banner.
INDIANAPOLIS, Iro., Aug. 3a— The
movement that brought into being the
convention of the National Democratic
party, wnich will be called to order in
Tomlinson Hall at noon Wednesday next,
started with the adoption of the platform
by the Chicago Democratic Convention.
No definite steps were taken, however, un
til July 19, when W. D. Bynum, John P.
Prenzel. John B. Wilson, John T. Dye and
Evans Woollen sent out from this city
telegrams asking for a conference of sound
money Democrats at Chicago.
From that day the movement has de
veloped so rapidly that now the National
Democracy is organized in forty-one
Mate*, all of which, it is said, will be
represented by full delegations in the con
vention this week. Mr. Bynum, as chair
man of the executive committee, has been
busy almost night and day iv pushing the
organization and he has had the active
support and assistance of many of the
ablest Democratic politicians in tbe
Secretary Wilson of the National Com
mittee tbis evening completed making up
the temporary roll of the convention, so
far as be could go, until tbe Tuesday meet
ing of the National Committee. The fol
lowing States have certified the names of
full delegations elected: California, Con
necticut, Illinois, Indiana, lowa, Kansas,
K"~ntncky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland,
Massachusetts, Micbigan, Minnesota,
Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina,
North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylva
nia, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South
Dakota. Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, West
Virginia — twenty-nine in all.
The following States hare notified the
executive committee that they bave
elected delegations, but have not yet sent
in their lists: Alabama, Colorado, Dela
ware, Florida, Nebraska, New fiamp-
Buire, Virginia and Washington.
These States will, it is expected, elect
to-morrow: Sew York, Arkansas, Mis
sissippi and Montana, making a total of
forty-one States, and leaving Idaho,
Wyoming, Nevada and Utah as the States
which will not take part in the conven
The convention will be notable in one
or two other particulars aside from the
suddenness with whicu it has been
brought together. It will have no con
tending factions nor opposing ambitions
and it wili contain more notable men than
any of those held this year. The speeches
to be delivered at the Wednesday night
mass-meeting by Ebrich, Fellows, Breck
iaridge, Eckels and Outhwaite are looked
forward to as notable contributions to the
sound-money literature of the campaign.
W. J. Curtis o! New Jersey, one of the
leaders of the sound-money movement in
the Democratic party of this State, arrived
in the city this afternoon. He said the
full delegation of twenty men from New
Jersey would be here and that a number
of others inierested in the movement
would attend the convention.
"The movement in New Jersey," he
said, "is widespread and powerful. Of the
fourteen members of the State Committee
when the committee voted as to whetber
or not it snould support Bryan, three
voted absolutely against such a course
and one failed to vote."
"We have three of them now on our
State committee and the secretary and
chairman of tbe old State committee are
only waiting for the State convention
for the election of electors-at-laree
to leave the old party and identify them
selves with the new movement. I use the
term old party as referring to what is gen
erally spoken of as the Democratic party,
but we do not recognize it as the Demo
cratic party at all. We look upon the ad
herents to the Chicago Platform as the
bolters, and as a matter of fact tbey are
bolters in New Jersey, for they left the
principles whicu tiie Democrats of the
State nad already declared for.
"Wnois the preference of New Jersey
for the presidential nomination?" was
asked Mr. Curtis.
"I cannot speak for the delegation," he
answered, "as we have bad no conferences
and every man comes Iree to cast bis vote
as he chooses. I ca.i say, however, that
we will probably be united and our princi
pal aim, perhaps, will be to add strength
to the strongest man. Personally I be
lieve that General Palmer would make the
ideal candidate.
"General Bragg is a man of whom I am
very fond and a man who wouid do honor
to the ticket. Watterson is very popular
and would make a very acceptable candi
date to many and there is only one reason
that I could offer for not supporting him
for tbe nomination. Coming from the
same State as General Buckner his nomi
nation for the Presidency wouid defeat
Buckner's nomination *O" <h Vice-Presi
dency and I hope to see General Buckner
get that nomination."
Tbe Florida delegation will come to the
convention to support Grover Cleveland
for tbe Presidential nomination. To-day
a telegram was received by Mr. Taggart
at the Grand Hotel from Mr. Arthur
The San Francisco Call.
Meigs, chairman of the delegation, asking
that a banner be prepared for the delega
tion. The banner is to be of white tilk
with a gold border, containing in the cen
ter the portarit of Cleveland and inscribed
with the words "Our Candidate." Mr.
Meigs requested that the banner be sent
to the Union station to meet the delega
tion at 11:50 o'clock Tuesday morning.
Chairman Bynum returned to-day from
Bradford Junction, Ohio, where he spoke
last night to a meeting composed largely
of railroad men. He says there were 4000
people in the orowd, three special trains
Having brought large numbers from the
surrounding country. The meeting was
to him, at least, a very satisfactory dem
onstration of the interest of the people in
the cause of sound money.
Senator Donelson Caffery of Louisiana,
who is to be permanent chairman of the
convention, is expected to reach Indian
apolis to-morrow.
Ex - Governor Flower, the temporary
chairman, wili not arrive here until Tues
The impression prevails to-night that
the ticket is likely to be Bragg and Buck
Mr. Curtis of New Jersey expressed his
satisfaction with it, especially with the
selection of Buckner, and the Kansas dele
gation are quoted in support of tbe two
Mr. Bynum was asked to-night if the
ticket nominated here this week would be
heard from in the electoral college.
"Certainly," he promptly responded.
"It will carry four States. 11
"What are they ?"
"Florida, Alabama and Texas are three
of them."
Nothing is known here of the intentions
of President Cleveland regarding the con
vention and its work. No one so far on
the ground has received any communica
tion from him; at least, none that has
even been whispered of in private con
Some people think it probable that
Comptroller Eckels, who will be here to
morrow, has a message from the President
or is authorized to speak for him in some
way that will be satisfactory to the dele
Chameterittie Reply to Words of Praise
from a friend.
CANTON, Ohio, Aug. 30.— Major Mc-
Kinley spent a very quiet Sunday. The
greater part of his mail was piled on his
desk untouched, waiting for to-morrow.
Only the most important of telegrams
were answered. The Major had for his
Truest Hon. Benjamin Butterworth, who
is on his way to the Northwest, where he
will go on tbe stump for the Republican
party. Major Butterworth accompanied
Major McKinley to church this morning,
where they listened to a sermon by Bishop
Mils. To-night Major Butterworth spoke
most eloquently of his distinguished host.
"I was going to church with him tbis
morning, aud as we walked along the
quiet shady street I took occasion to say
to him that his name was on every tongue
and that he was known in every land, and
■«.!>keii him if tb*X fact did not tend to
exalt him in bis own eyes.
" 'No,' he said, "if it tends to do any
thing it makes me more sensible of my
shortcomings and causes me to seek with
greater earnestness tban in ail my life to
learn the way in which my feet should go.
Never before have 1 felt the need of
strength and wisdom as I bave these last
two months, and never have I been so
sensible of my own weakness.' "

of the Pom tor's Uiscourse.
JAMESTOWN, N. V., Aug. 30.— Mr. and
Mrs. Bryan attended service at the First
Presbyterian Church here tbis morning
and beard Rev. G. M. Colviile, the pastor,
preach a sermon from the text beginning
"He saw a great multitude." Tnis was
construed into a reference to the vast
multitude which- Mr. Bryan addressed at
Cleron, on Lake Chautauqua, last night.
Mr. and Mrs. Bryan left Jamestown to
day on a special trolley-car for Late wood,
six miles from thte city.
On the way out to the lake- Mr. Bryan

Kent House, where a reception in their
honor was held this afternoon. To-mor
row morning the nominee and his wife

on the Money Question.
NEW YORK, N. V., Aug. 30.— The
Herald this morning says: President
Cleveland's visit to this city yesterday, the
prime object of which was the reception

tbe «oui)d-raoney members of his Cabinet,
and it is said that Mr. Cleveland did not
suffer the golden chance to slip.
As soon as Li had departed the members
of the Cabinet present— Messrs. Olney,
Carlisle, Harmon and Laniont —and Mr.
Whitney, whose sound-money views are
well known, began, it is said, an informal
discussion of the situation, dwelling prin
cipally on the quest. on of a third ticket.
It is understood that Mr. Cleveland told
the gentlemen present that he would
shortly issue an open letter on the money
question, and that he bad wished to con
sult them as to its details. The discussion

Brace Xot a Goldite.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.. Aug. 30.-
Chief Justice Theodore Brace of the
State Supreme Court yesterday an
nounced his fealty to the Demo
cratic party, and declined the nomi
nation of the Gold Democrats. "Why
I was nominated by that conven

nominated by the regular Democratic
Convention for State Supreme Judge. I

consistent with my judicial position to
uphold it, both in State and Nation."

ment has expressed approval of the decree
which Captain-General Weyler has de
cided to issue, suspending the work of
gathering the coffee crop in Cuba, and

KEY WEST, Fla., Aug. 30.— Great ex
citement prevails in Havana over Wey
ler's decree in regard to the sugar and
coffee crops. It is believed that, if issued,
tbe decree will be strongly opposed. Seri
ous complications are expected from the
Spanish element. It is rumored that the
Conservative party held a secret meeting
last night and decided to ask the home
Government for Weyier's recall, and if re
fused to forcibly expel him, as was done
to General Dulce in the last war.
It is understood that Consul Lee has
strongly protested against the notice
posted at the entrance to Cabana Fortress,
stating if the American Consul presented
himself there to detain and arrest him.
Lee has also demanded that Weyler make
a full investigation of Charles Govin's

He Receives Injuries Which Will Doubtless
Prove Fatal — Sad End to a Ro
mantic Career.
DENVER, Colo., Aue. 30.— Sergeant Ivy
Baldwin, attached to the Signal Service of
the Department of the Colorado, fell from
his balloon while making an ascension at
Ki itch's Gardens to-day and will probably

released and rushed upward a sudden gust
of w:nd blew the aeronaut, swinging from
a trapeze, against a tree, the shock dazing
him so that be lost his presence of mind,
and when above the treetops : c let go his
hold, failing a distance of forty feet.
Both arms were broken, a hip dislocated
and one eye wan seriously wounded. He
was taken to St. Anthony's Hospital,
where he lies unconscious.
Ivy Baldwin has had a romantic career,
having given balloon exhibitions all over
ttie world. About two years ago Captain
W. A. Giasford, who has been experi
menting with balloons as a means of sig
naling in army work, induced Baldwin to
enlist, and his practical Knowledge of bal
looning has been of great value. The
aeronaut has been taking great interest in
the equipment of the new balloon park at
Fort Logan, where practical operations
were soon to be inaugurated.

Foreign Minister and Chan
cellor of the Russian
Traveling With the Czar aod
Czarina en Their Tour
of Europe.
Cool ' Headed and Clear • Sighted He
Was Never Swerved From
His Purpose.
LONDON, Esq., Aug. 30.— The Daily
Telegraph to-morrow will publish a Kief
dispatch saying that Prince Loban< ff-
Rostovski, the Russian Minister of For
eign Affairs, who accompanied the Czar
and Czarina on their recently begun
foreign tour, died suddenly to-day while
on his way from Vienna to Kief.
Prince Lobanoff's nomination to the
Chancellorship of the Russian Empire
marked tbe inauguration of a new era in
Muscovite politics. M. de Giers was con
l tent wit i a perfectly passive role while at
the bead of the Department of Foreign
Affairs, leaving all tbe initiative to the
late Czar, who retained in his own hands
the direction of Russia's international re
lations, while Prince Gortscnakoff — at any
rate, during the last decade of his life
was so much absorbed by questions con
cerning his failing health and by his
quest for pleasure that he had but little
time to devote to the affairs of state, tbe
administration of which he abandoned to
subordinates, who were naturally afraid
to assume any responsibility.
Prince Alexander Lobanoff-Rostovski,
however, was a man of a very different
stamp. Masterful in character, cool
beaded and clear-sighted, he would not
permit himself to be swayed by any one—
not even by the Czar himself— from the
course which, upon mature reflection, he
had decided to be the right one to adopt.
Unlike the majority of bis countrymen, he
never gave way to impulse, never lost his
temper and never manifested any of that
passionate enthusiasm to which the Slavs
are so prone. Nothing ever seems to dis
turb his equanimity, while his inde
pendence of character was something ab
solutely unique in a Russian. Possessed
of a vast fortune, as well as of a lineage
which, extending back to Rurik, is, from a
Russian point of view, superior even to
that of the Emperor, he regarded himself
as fully tbe latter's equal as far as blood
and ancestry are concerned.
Prince Lobanoff, when Embassador at
Vienna, received a '.eleg'-ani from the
Grand Duke Nicolas Mcolaievitch, in
which the brother of Alexander II an
nounced the hour of his arrival and de
manded that Prince Lobanoff should meet
dim at the station. Without betraying
any sign of irritation at tbe arrogant tone
of tbe dispatch, he contented himself with
sending an attache to the terminus to
meet tbe Grand Duke, and to inform him
that he wojild be pleased to see him at the
embassy. He would not even call upon
Nicolas at his hotel, but waited at home
to receive the visit of his Imperial High
ness, whom he greeted on tbe threshold
of his library with that urbanity which
characterized bis manner to high and
low alike.
Not a word of *poloey did he offer for
having neglected to obey the behests of
the Grand Duke, and that tbe latter might
be under no misapprehension as to the
receipt of his message, he had taken care
to lay the telegraphic dispatch on the
desk ; n such a manner tnat its contents
could not fail to catch the eye of any one
entering the room.
Tbe Grand Duke took his les'on meekly,
nor did he ever take more trouble than
on this occasion to express hia regard for
the Embassador. who subsequently heard
privately from St. Petersburg that Alex
ander 111 had been .delighted with the
snub administered to his uncle.

President Is Among Their
SANDWICH, Mass., Ang. 30.— The an

excited Sandwich to-day, since report had
it that the ceremony had been performed
in this little town. Report for once
Droved true, and Rev. J. D. O'Keefe au
thenticated the rumor that tbe happy and
handsome couple which left the parochial
residence this afternoon was composed of
none other than the coachman and gov
erness in the family of the President.
The bridal party drove up from Gray

Visits the Tomb of the
General at Riverside
The Celestial Embassador Much
Affected as He Enters
the Crypt
Afterward Calls on the Widow of the
General and T kens of Esteem
Are Exchanged,
NEW YORK, N. V., Aug. 30.-Li Hung
Chang, despite the fact that he attended
a dinner given in his honor Saturday
night by the ex-ministers to China at the
Waldorf and had remained up at least an
hour beyond his usual hour for retiring,
arose this morning at 6:30 o'clock. The
great man breakfasted at 8 o'clock, after
wnich he retired to his sitting-room. At
10 o'clock a delegation of thirty Chinese
merchants, representing tbe Lee Fam in
the-'e parts, called on tbe Embassador to
pay their respects. The delegation, which
was headed by the Ciinese Consul, was
attired in all the splendor of Oriental
dress, and their pietails were carefully
groomed. The members of the delegation
all bowed, almost to tbe ground, as they
entered Li Hung Chang's presence, and
the great man returned the salute. Tbe
audience lasted for more than an bour,
and it must have been a pleasant meet
ing, for the delegation was smiling all
over when they came out of the room.
Tne most interesting part of the pro
gramme was the visit of the Embassador
to the tomb of General Grant on the River
side drive. Li Hung Cbang had a great
admiration for General Grant, who was
one of his heroes. At an early hour in tbe
forenoon a crowd began to gather in tbe
vicinity of the Waldorf anxious to get a
glimpse of tbe famous Chinaman. Acting
Inspector Hariey, with a force of 125 men
stationed around the house, kept tue peo
ple from crowding around the hotel.
There was no cavalry escort to-day, the
mounted policemen doing the honors.
The programme of the Viceroy was a per
sonal one, and this accounts for tbe ab
sence of the Government escort.
The hour set for Li's visit to Grant's
tomb was 3 o'clock. Before that time the
police stopped traffic and nobody was ad
mitted into Twenty-third street. A dense
mass of people lined the sidewalks along
Finn avenue as far as tbe eye could see.
There were bluecoats stationed all along
the route wuicb was covered by the dis
tinguiabed visitor. This was: Fiftlx
avenue to Forty-ninth street, to the Boule
vard, to Riverside drive and the tomb.
Aciing Police Inspector Thompson was in
command of 500 men, stationed around the
tomb and along the drive.
Colonel Fred Grant, accompanied by his
son, Ulysses Grant, and by his brother,
Ulysses G^ant, of San Diego, Ca:., arrived
at the Waldorf at 2:20 o'clock. . Mrs. Grant,
the widow of General Graut, who was
staying at tbe Fifth avenue Hotel, was
driven to Colonel Grant's house. 25 East
Sixty-second street, where Li Hunt; Chang
was to visit her after tbe ceremony a: the
tomb was over.
An immense wreath which the Emba»
sador was to place on the tomb of the
dead general was first carried downstairs
from the Viceroy's apartments. This
wreath, carefully guarded by a member of
Li's suite, was placed in a cab and taken
to the tomb.
Precisely at 3 o'clock Li Hung Chang,
escorted by General Ru^er and Colonel
Grant, came downstairs and walked
through the corridor of the hotel to the
Thirty-third-street entrance. There a car
riage was waiting and he took nis seat in
it. Colonel Grant, Genecal Ruger and the
official interpreter occupied seats in the
same carriage. In the second carriage
were General Miles, General Horace Por
ter and Henry W. Cannon. Uiysses
Grant, the i»on of Colonel Fred Grant; his
uncle, Ulysses Grant, and Mr. Drew, were
in the tbi.d carriage. Then came tbe Chi
nese Minister and ex-Minister to China
General F. Seward. In the last carriage
were four attendants of the Embassador.
Li Hung Chaug's chair occupied a car
riage all to itself.
Everything was ready in a few minutes
and the start for the tomb was made at
3:10 o'clock, the carriag s driving at a fair
gate up Fifth avenue. U Hung had his
famous umbrella over his bead all tbe
way. He received an enthusiastic ova*ion
from the 30,000 or more people who lined
the Riverside and Mcrningside drives.
A large space surrounding the tomb
bad been roped in, giving the spectators
a good opportunity of witnessing the pro
ceedings. At tf-.e foot of the streets lead
