It had uo slate to break on the State ticket
or It would hare been smashed In the so
culled contest for principles rnthcr than

Tho nomination of Colonel Kllboumewas
appropriately called one of spontaneous
Hon ells IHdy Alshlrc nnd Tloltmnu were
favorites nt great odds from the start
Young was sprung as a surprise and nom
inated over Smoot who bad been such a
fniorlto that others would not enter the
race for clerk of the supreme court
The represcntatlie of Mayor Tom L
Johnson was both temporary and perma
nent chairman of the convention and the
delegates quoted Senator Itanna by shout
lug He knows bis uuHluasti
It was reported that JntiiiaoiuUoslred the
nomination of Monnelt as attorney general
and tho McLean men wanted Monuett de
feated At any rate the defeat of M n
nctt was so dcrlslie as to be a feature of
the contention
Monuett as attorney general brought suits
against the Standard Oil company and oth
er corporations to cancel their charters
under the nntltiusl laws I1b had sought
a third term uoinlnatlon from the tepjb

was adopted one of these six doles tte
called attention to the fact that plctuies
of other ileinocrnfs were displayed In the
hall and none of Urviib as heretofore lie
Matted to curry a small hiuner with Dry
an s picture on It to the platform The
aisles were oidered cleared and the pic

ttnmpled under foot and spoiled during the
wild demonstiatlons when Kllboiirno was
escorted Jtito the hall Wh4 It Is believed
that the matching club did not know they
were walking over Bryans picture jet
there was much comment after the con
lentlou that the picture was treated wttie
than had been the old standard bearer Imp
frcir by the committee ou resolution and
the contention
The members of the committee on reso
lution shld an hour was pent after mid
night Inn night In cQorts to strike out
tho word solrable out of the plank ol
ralhoad taiutlou and several lours lu cle
pouncing the Chicago and KaDsns City
platforms nnd the Itndot who stood on
them The platform caused much com
ment toulght oier what It does not say as
well as over what It does say
It Is said that none of the candidates for
chairman or secretary of the Stnte commit
tee can secure n majority of tho twenti one
totes and Colonel Ktlhourno will be com
pelled to co operate with olther the McLean
men or the Johnson men who are not talk
ing frlendy of each other to control the
State executltv committee In this conne
tlon there are nil sorts of rumors about
the senatorshlp for which the convention
Indorsed no one an the democratic candidate
to snerecd Senator Koraker The names ot
John It McLean and of Tom U Johnson
arc most prominently mentioned lu this
connection Thpy both have sudor friends
on the Stnte central committee which Is
said now not to stamt lust as It was
thought and which uay yet show a more
radical change than that of the past twon
ts four hours No one Is able to poll the
twentyone members of this committee to
tell how It will stand with the Cincinnati

McLean men and the Johnson men and
nlso thoxe who are opposed to both of these
leaders In the party organization that Is
to be made July 20
Some say that the gold democrats got
back this > ear but that other Isms were
adrpted that will cause as much trouble as
free silver and populism
It Is conceded that this convention was
the author of a new departure In some
of Its declarations and some think that the
changes may affect the party organization
Tin platform Is as follows
The democrats In Ohio reaffirm their be
lief In the equity of taxation and other
public burdens their advocacy of equal
rights of all people with special privileges
to none their hostility to the organization
of Industry with tts tendency on the one
band to crush out Individual enterprises
and n the other to promote a socialistic
spirit among the people as the only refuge
ot constitutional government which brougut
brought the nation Into existence and
have preserved It to the present genera
tion For the promotion of those objects the
democratic party of Ohio makes the fol
lowing declaration of principles and poli
cies Municipal Governments The government
of municipalities of the State should be
radically reformed and laws ena cd tp
correct abuses and prerent their recurrence
