William Jen nings Rryan was strongly indorsed ns the standard bearer of the national Democratic party in the campaign of llHtS by the Democratic state conven tion which has adjourned sine die. There were only two occasions in which Bryan's name was mentioned during the day, and those were when the resolutions were read as a whole, and again when the planks were adopt ed separately. In both instances his name was cheered repeatedly and the words "Bryan. Bryan. Bryan, three cheers for Bryan." brought fcrth a tu mult of applause which continued some time before the chairman could restore order. Comment on the Platform. The convention held two sessions and spent several hours in deliberating over a platform of principles, which was prepared by the committee on resolu tions after an all-night session. While several of the planks embraced in the document as presented to the conven tion were sought to be changed by a minority of the delegates, with two exceptions the original draft stands at the close of the convention as it came from the committee. Municipal Ownership Wins. One of these exceptions is the add ing of a few extra words to the tar iff plank, faroring the placing free all commodities supplied by any trust or monopoly. The other exception is the adding of an extra plank denouncing the contributions of vast sums of mon ey for corrupt uses in national and state affairs. The plank which came in for the most criticism and consid erable debate Avas that loaring upon municipal ownership. National Com mitteeman Ryan fought hard against the addition of the plank, but when the deciding vote was called for, the opponents were apparently very few. Points of the Platform. The platform dc-nounces trusts and demands their suppression; favors re vision of the tariff on the principle of tariff for revenue, and the putting on the free list of all trust products; de mands national reservation of all coal and oil lands; favors an income tax; demands a promise with fixd date of and for independence of the Philip pine islands; favors election of sena tors by the people, and government control of all public service corpora tions. As to state matters the plat form favors fixing of railway rates by the state; city ownership of public serv ice utilities, the city control of street railway fares and gas rates; favors a 2-cent-a-mile law, and laws giving to capital and labor impartially their rights; also ad valorem taxation of cor porations, and primary election laws. Idea is really triumphant and the cause j of the nation's prosperity. The work accomplished consisted 1 principally in the adoption of a reso lution introduced by II. J. Mullkis, of j Tennessee, providing that the People's party heartily agree in the work be- j ing performed by the conference pro- j visional committee for the purpose of j concentrating and carnalizing the n- j from organizations of the country into J an integral part of the People's party; j the adoption of a general address to j the people setting forth the doctrines j ant! principles of the party; the author- j ization of Colonel II. L. Bentlcy, of i Texas, to continue the work he has ! individually pursued for sixteen years i of organizing People's party county j clubs throughout the United States; election of him as president of the ; People's party club organization, and j appointment of a committee to 'raise j $4,000 annually to defray the expenses i incurred in the dub federation move ment; the authorization of a movement to establish a party organ as soon as conditions justify, and a multitude of speeches discussing and expounding the doctrines and basic principles of the national party. THAW IS DULY INDICTED The mmond Distilling Co, Slayer of Architect White Charged with. First Degree Murder Mm. Thaw Refuses to Testily. New York, June 20. Harry Kendall Thaw has been indicted for murder in the first degree for the killing of Stan ford White last Monday night. His wife, Evelyn Thaw, appeared as a wit ness before the grand jury, but begged to be excused from giving any testi mony whatever. She was treated with every consideration by Assistant Dis trict Attorney Garvan and by the jur ors, who did not insist that she should answer any questions. She said she might say something that would in jure her husband, and on that account would decline to answer any questions. The grand jury's consideration of the ca?e was brief, and followed a perfunctory- inquest before a coroner's jury, which heard the testimony of several eye-witnesses to the tragedy and rendered a formal verdict that White's death had been caused by young Thaw. The latter calmly list ened to the testimony, and while the jury was out he chatted with his coun sel and a policeman sitting near, laugh ing aloud at one stage of the conversa tion. Mrs. Thaw, following her appearance before the grand jury, crossed the "bridge of sighs" and entered the city prison to see her husband. They talked together for a long Avhile. Stanford White was buried yester day at St. James, L. I., where be had a summer home. The services were held in the St. James Episcopal church. The physician who performed the au topsy says White's death would have occurred in two years, as he was suf fering from Rright's disease, incipient tuberculosis, and fatty degeneration of the liver. Thaw sent a message from tho Tombs to Anthony Comstoek, saying he had received a letter which it would pay Comstoek to investigate. The let ter Is withheld from publication.
