TNEW YORK IS FOR GOLD The Gold Men in the Ohio De mocratic Convention DIdnt Say a Word. SILVER WINS IN TEXAS , Ikdiaxapolis, Ind., June 24. An other step is bung taken to-day In the work ol committing the democracy of I be went to free silver. The state ilemocratio convention was called to order this morning in Tomllnson hull, by Htnte Chairman Sterling K. Holt. The convention wilt nominate the all state ticket from governor down, will select delegates to the national convention and presidential electors, li, F. Sbivelr. of South Bend, a red-hot silver man, ptobably leads for the gubernatorial nomination It is thought that the delegates-at. large will support the presidential as pirations of Governor Matthews, who Las given the gold element a cur prise by expressing himself in favor of the conditions which existed prior to 1873. Indianapolis, Ind., June 24. The democratic state convention, to-day, proved the largest and one of the most txoiting the party, tver had in this state. When Chairman Holt, of the state committee, rapped for order, the great hall was crowded. The hall was tastttully deoorated wiih flags, bunting . and lithographs of Governor Matthews. No other democratic face appeared upon the walls, and President Cleve- land's likeni ss was as conspicuous by its absence from the decorations, as bis name was from the platform. The report of the committee on per manent organisation developed tbe fact that the silver people had made a new move to down the Marion county gold crowd, by not recognising the dis trict meeting of the night before, and reqniring the seventh district to hold another meeting with silver contest ants seated. As soon as the report was read, Judge Branvan moved to substitute the cauegof J. G. Shanklla for that of Menzie. By u urn demanded a roll call on the original motion, but was interrupted by Shankiin, himself, ' who came forward to withdraw his name. He was greeted with cries of -no, no,1 and the wildest delight was , manifested ' when be " branched off into a silver speech. A viva voce vote taken '.on !hj adoption of the whole report declared it to be carried, though tbe noes had a majority. This carried with it the throwing out of tbe seventh district selection. Mr. Holt at once Introduced tbe permanent chairman, Senator Bell, of Fort Wayne, who made a speech. Tbe Marion county row was Imme diately precipitated upon iLe conven tion after tbe speech by the permanent chairman. Bellamy Sutton lead the report of the credentials committee. The report unseating Chairman Holt of the state committee, as a delegate, gave the silver men the best of it. Tbv report closed with a resolution ordericg tbe delegates of the seventh district, as made up by tbe credentials committee, to retire and perform new eUcliqn8 for delegate as oounBelmen. 'f he report was adopted under the op eration of the previous question, amid very great confusion. In obedience to be order, tbe silver delegates from the evenlh district left the hall, but the old delegates never left their seats. There was riotous confusion while the tnote was being made. ,. The icancial plank in the platform Is as follows : "We re-affirm our ad herence to the faith in tbe democratic doctrine i f bi metallism and therefore we demani' thfl immediate restoration fit bl-nietfiilioi by the free, unrestricted tioioage of both silver and gold as pri mary money at the ratio of It to 1, without wailing for the co-operation f any foreign poWtr; ail such coinage to be lull legal teuder for the payment c4 ell public and private debts." Tbo platform endorses Governor Mw for the presidency and so in structs ib delegates. It opposes the redempMo'" and final cancellation of ljuiied States' notes (greenback) or nny other notes or certificates issued by the United gta'iSS to circulate as money; demands a sufficient and stable volume of money, of gold, silver nod paper, to meet the requirements of cor growing population and constantly increasing productive industries. I protests against bond issues in times of peace. The platform. was started on its way by a motion for the previous question, when Congressman Bynum arose, and " n wild scene ensued. The convention endeavored to howl him down. Chair. idiio Bell declared him out of order, and declared the platform adopted, but llynum gesticulated and declared be was acting under the rules. Ovtr an hour of confusion was thus Fpent n trying to get a hearing for Bycum. Q Bayard Should May Over Thar. London, F.og., June 24. Tbe do greeof 1).

Everything Their Own Wey, end Resolve Accordinr.ly. Com.mhih, Ohio. June 24 Tbe democratic ataln convention was called to order by Chairman Sroalley, 10:30 o'clock this morning. W. Taylor was Introduced as temporary chairman. In the oourse if bis ad dress, he said : The danger which threatens this country Is not ber rich mines of gold and silver, but that grasping flnan cial policy which has made England tbe home of tbe landlords and tenants and which is being surreptitiously en grafted upon our own laws by tbe Sherman act of 1873, which has made it possible to turn tbe United States treasury into a broker shop, and en rich a foreign syndloate, with patriot! Amerioan connections, by compelling the issue of the bonds of the people to keep intact a stock of gold, whijh it turns to ' its own sinister . acoomt at pleasure. You have no war to make on capital. You will make no war upon it. You intend to respect its rights and you iotend that it shall re fpect your rights. If you rid more or did less than ibese things, you would be unworthy tbe title of American." At the conclusion of Colonel lay lor's speech, the report of 'the ooru mitteeon rules was called .for. .The overwhelming vote by which the re port was adopted, showed that any op position from tbe gold delegates would be futile. Tbe committee on per manent organization then presented Its report, which was adopted, naming General arner as permanent chair man. In taking the chair, General Warner made a short speech, in which he said be believed that Mai jr McKln ley was honest in bis money theory, but he could no more bring prosperity to tbe nation in that way than he could lift himself by h i boot straps. By a vote of 542 to 128, the conven tion adopted tbe following platform : We, tbe democrats of Ohio, io con vention assembled, hold ' that the money question is the vital and para mount Issue now before the people of this country, and its early and correct settlement is necessary to a revival of business and a return to prosperity ; therelore. "Sesohed, We are unalterably op posed to the single gold standard, and demand tbe immediate return to the constitutional money of gold and silver by the restoration by this government, independent of other nations, tbe un restricted ooinage of both silver and gold at the ratio of 16 to 1." The following named were selected for delegates at large: Allen W. Tbur man, E B. Finley, L. E. Holden and John K. McLean. TRUE DEMOCRACY KERB. Sound Money and a Wrangle, arc the Feature. of New York'. Convention. Saratoga, N. Y., June 24. Since 1682 the democrats of New York bave had only one candidate for governor, other than David B.

The party of Jefferson, Jackson, Benton and Tilden always favored the best money in use, the money adopted as the standard by the most enlightened of nations. Neither tbe consideration of ex pediency nor the selfish interests of those who own silver bullion should lead ns to part from the safe and se cure psth." .
