(My Telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.)
bouisvllle, Ky., June 1.?The speech
of Hon. James 1\ Tarrln, president ol
the uhlo Valley Bimetallic League, lust
nifilit, wus pronounced one of the bi si
ami ablest ever h._nl In this city. Hi
had the attention of Iiis audience fur
more than an hour. \\ 1th reference to
currency reform lie said:
WHAT W 13 STAND FOR.
"We stand without Qualification, re?
st rve, or conditions for the free and un?
limited coinage of .silver and gold at the
ration of ic to 1, by the pnltcd States, j
without awaiting the action uf any
6till r o iU ttry Oil earth. We express our
i pii . us thai tins plank ought io be In
l.'ic Dcmouratiu National Platform of
..uu. \\e .ue ol the opinion that no
stej a should be taken to obscure this
doctrine, or to relegate it. We believe
t'.t.'u the Democratic National Conven?
tion of 1800 Bhould : dopt the Chicago
Platform Of ISOll without the omission
iH^a word, n letter, or a putictuatl
ufark; and that it should add thereto
specific ami an upproprlute declaration
against tin- existence ? ud the organisa?
tion of trusts and combinations, ami a ]
Bpeclflo promise of legislative action
looking to their extermination; ami
that it should add therein a declara?
tion against any policy of imperialism,
appropriate to an absolute government,
but repugnant to very line of the 11.11 I
of HltditH and the Constitution of the
UnlteiTBtatcs.
1 '?''??ffllitjrfC'" the oplnbrrr'
trfat the DenioTTrTrfTc plaiform of 1?0U
ought to be made by Democrats, and
that those who are hot Democrats
bucht not to undertake to dictate what
that plaiform shall be. We believe Unit
those who made the phi:form of lSVi'i
ami who contended for the success ol
that platform hi that year, und who
placed the l)i mocratic organization un?
der the control of the people, should
make the Democratic platform of 1000.
Wo believe that Iho Democratic Na?
tional Convention "f 1900 .should b
composed of those who arc now In sym?
pathy with und in accord with the
Democratic party as now organised,
und not of those who are hostile to it.
and if a convention so composed Bhould
see tit to lake away from or to alter
?the Chlccagb platform of 1806, it will
then remain lb be Been whether tin
people of this country will endorse it.
I am well nwnre of the fact thai In
ISO'J ihou'snnds of Intelligent und sin?
cere American voters refused, because
of honest conviction, to support the
Democratic nominee for President. I em
nwnre thai man;, of those hud for years
ii i tged t? the Democratic party. We
have no right to criticise such men for
leaving their pjjrt" or for voting ihclr
. fictions; they hnd the right to so
lerne, and they , had the right to so
vote; and no m n ought t" be expe rtcd
to vcte contrary t? Iii? judgment and
his conscience, no matter what the
convention of any party may have de?
clared. Mary of those Democrats have
concluded that they were wrong, ami
they want to come back. They have
the right to com.-, pack, expressing their
belief In. und their adherence to, the
ilpctrlnen and the platform of Democ?
racy as now established, and no one has
any desire to k'"-?> such men away.
ANOTHER class.
"But there Is another class, made up
ff men who have spent their lives lit
the public service, and who h;:ve spent
years In ofllce by the grace of Demo?
cratic voters, anil who have for years
expressed their belief in the cardinal
doctrines of the Chicago platform ot
lS&O-nten who abandoned their party,
violated their convictions, disregarded
their expressed beliefs, and sought to
destroy those who had bestowed upon
them every dollar and every honor they
had ever known. These men acted un?
der Influences! and the doors of the
Democratic organization ought to be
clc?ed to them, If they sei k to re?
turn it Is for the purpose only of be?
trayal. We have some of them In Ken.
tucky. some >>f them who declared that
they would support the Chicago plat?
form of 1896 after its adoption and even
then changed their minds. To men of
this class we may say that we followed
them for years, but that now our path
lies one way and their path lies another
way. We may say to them that they
have hieu tried and found wanting,
nnd that we do ml want our course or
our platform to be marked out by them.
We may say if them. "Good-bye, and
God be with You?for You Will Need
Him.'
THE TRUST.
"The trust is the highest form of
concentrated wealth yet known. It is
the perfection of the ownership by the
nionied class of all the fruits of labor,
of all the land. The trust meets with
universal condemnation, yet we may
observe that some of those who con?
demn, have the power to destroy the
trust, but fail to do so. We may ob?
serve that the ofllec of Attorney-Gen?
eral of the I'nited States,through which
the trust could be destroyed, has been
filled by one who was the Governor of
New Jersey, the hot-bed and birthplace
of trusts, and who was created and who
Is owned by the trusts. We may ob?
serve that those connected with the
present national Administration con
iimo trusts, and yet the power of Ui*
Administration to destroy the trusts is
not exercised. We may remember that
tlie Republican National Convention of
lb'JB denounced the gold standard, and
that thereafter the advocates of the
gold standard supplied the money -with
which to buy the election of the nomi?
nee of that convention.
"We may hear from some that they
oppose the trust, but favor the gold
standard. The man who ma!:es this
declaration is lacking either in Intelli?
gence or In sincerity. The sincere man
who thinks will say that it is self-evi?
dent that he who is opposed to tho
growth of trusts Is opposed to the gold
standard. He who opposes the trusts
opposes the foundation upon which the
trust is built. He who opposes the trust
opposes that system without which the
trust could not live. It does not re?
quire th.? Stupendous Intellect of gold
standard advocates to understand that
the less money there is the easier It Is
to concentrate it, and that tho more
money there is, the more difficult It is
to concentrate It. Even a Democrat,
with tho little intelligence credited to
him by the gold standard advocates,
an und rs:aad that the d ?monetizatlon
of silver was one of the steps in that
pro, ess by which it was made possiblo
for tho trust to come Into being. Every
supporter of a trust and every benefi?
ciary of a trust Is an udvocate of the
Bold standard, and every advocate of
? gold standard is a supporter and
upholder of trusts.
THE NEXT DEMOCRATIC CONVEN?
TION.
"It Is contended by some that the
Democratic National Convention ot 1000
Should omit from its platform the de?
claration in favor of independent bi?
metallism at It! to 1, and should rely
upon a declaration against trustn.
Those who contend for this course are
decking only to place the domination ot
Ihc organised wealth of the country,
which now owns and controls the Re?
publican organization. You all re?
member the contest of IS96. You all re?
member the unprecedented and mag?
nificent fight made by the Democracy
In that year, without money and wit!".
out resources, and against the Organ?
ised Wealth and all the corporate In
nces of the land. You know that
"very vote cast for the Democratic
nominee for the Presidency In 1S96 was
in unpurchasable, an honest vote, and
ii ill know that a large proportion
of the Vat es cast against that iinmi
. were had by purchase or by force.
Those who contended against the De?
mocracy in 1896, are mortally afraid of
tho contest coming In 1900. Every sup
porter of a trust, every advocate of the
gold standard, every appendage to the
present administration. Is trembling
with apprehension at the prospects of?
fered by 1900. They fear another open
fight;- they ddrc not go forth to meet
It If It can be avoided, nnd tho mnn
who advocates the omlefdon of the
plank favoring the Independent bi
motnlllsm at Hi to 1 In the Democratic
platform of 1900, and a reliance upon a
declaration against trusts, is seeking
not the success of Democracy in that
year, but is seeking only to lure the
Democratic party from the only plat?
form on which it can know success.
PLATFi 'KM OF 1896.
"There are those who go about not
declaring for the Chicago platform of
1890, but declaring for a platform broad
enough for all Democrats to stand up?
on. They do not define what consti?
tutes a platform enough for all Dem?
ocrats to stand upon, but I can tell you
what they mean. They mean to broad?
en a Democratic platform by taking
away a part of it. They mean to sur
rentler that for which we contended In
1890. They mean to place the Demo?
cratic party where the Republican
party now is. under the control nnd In
the ownership of the Organised Wealth
of the United States. Those who go
about espousing a platform broad
en >ugh for all Democrats to stand on,
mean that they want you to broaden
y ur platform by taking out of it the
_'- ' ?- ;-';r; 11!? I-.-;i .-tii,l-.*Ttt Ij'trelalV""'
at 1G t? 1.
WRONG KIND OF BROADENING.
"We do not b.dieve In that process of
broadening. We find plenty of room
to stand now. nnd we suggest to those
who advise this process of broadening
10 gel n platform of their own. These
g. ntlemcn ought to seek others to nd
\ Ii e: they would be much better em?
ployed in seeking to dictate the He
puhllca.ii platform and in advising their
11 end-, instead of seeking tO advise
those with whom they are not friends.
NOTHING TO FEAR.
"The Democracy 1ms nothing to fear
in 1900 In an otien tight upon its own
platform. Its danger lies only in com?
promise or in accessions or In yielding
the control of Its course to its enemies,
i believe that the question of platform
Iii 1900 Is practically settled, nnd 1
ftgrec with. George Fred Williams, of
Massachusetts, when he says, In speak?
ing of those who sought to destroy us
in 1896: "The question Is. not how to
get them back, but how lo keep them
out-'
ONLY HOPE OF SUCCESS.
"Your only hone of success In 1900
lies in the Inherent right and justice
of your cause, and In the awakening
of the people of this country to <i
knowledge of existing conditions. Those
who call themselves Republicans ought
to understand the dlffi rence between
Lincoln and Hanna. Those who call
themselves Republicans ought to under?
stand that that which helns a Demo?
crat helps a Republican, nnd that which
hurts a. Republican hurts a Democrat;
that there is no issue between Republi?
canism and Democracy; that the situa?
tion is. that the Organized Wealth of
the country has obtained control of the
Republican organisation; that It'would
rob a Republican of tho fruits of his
labor. Just ns readily as it will rob a
Democrat of the fruits of his labor:
that organized Wealth has no politics
and no conviction; that it seeks only
tho control of the President, of the
Congress and of the courts, and that it
makes no difference to it whether it
controls them by means of the Repub?
lican organization op the Democratic
organization. It would like to own
them both, it made little difference to
the Organized Wealth of this country
in 1892 whether Mr. Cleveland was
elected or Mr. Harrison was elected,
and if Mr. Cleveland could be the
Democratic nominee in 1900 the money

Louisville, Ky., June 1.?When the af?

convened at McAuley's Theatre to-day
almost every delegate was In his seal.
Judge J. P. Tarvin, of Covlngton, pre?
sided and his gavel fell promptly at 2

LITTLE MARION CLARK. ABDUCTED IN NEW YORK.
Not since tlie famous Charley Ttoas case has the nbiluction of a child at?
tracted so wide and sympathetic Interest as the stealing of Marlon Clark, the
lS-months-old daughter <?f Mr. and Mrs. Arthur W. Clark, In New York. On
Sunday, May 21, the child was being wheeled through Central park by her
nurse, when she was stolen by the nurse In accordance with what seems lo
have been a well laid plot. As the Clark family is in moderate circumstances,
the hope Of a large ransom could not have been entertained by the abductors.
UeVi nj is also suggested us a motive for the crime. So grent hns become the
interest In the case that rewards aggregating $1,100 have been offered for tho
return of the child and the coprehenslon of the abductors.
part of last wei k. Mrs. Wilson was ac
companled by her husband and stated
to Mrs. Yoiimaiis that she wanted board
for the little girl for the Summer.
THE CHILD SEEN.
Yesterday morning Mrs. Wilson went
to the postorfice, taking Marion with
her. as she had done on several occa?
sions before. The Clark baby attracted
the country people by her appearance,
her large blue eyes and pink complexion
being particularly noticeable. The cu?
riosity which the child aroused made
her captors grow uneasy and they kept
her closely confined to the Yotiman's
home.
As soon as Deputy Sheriff William
H. Charlston learned of the abduction,
he, taking his clues, from pictures of
the child and the ^descriptions given
him by people who saw her, went to
the farm house of Charles Youmans
nnd found Mrs. Wilson, whom he de?
manded the child from.
Mrs. Wilson was Indignant and
claimed she knew nothing whatever of
the child.
WEAKENS AND CONFESSES.
The Deputy Sheriff produced a war?
rant, arrested the woman and demand
ed Information as to tho whereabouts
of tho child. At . this Mrs. Wilson
weakened and made a confession.
Marion Clark, the child. Is In good
health. She has no hat and her shoes
?how much rough handling.
Arthur Clark, the father of the ab?
ducted baby, arrived here at 6:30 o'clock
this evening. Ho immediately identi?
fied the child found In the custody of
Mrs. Jennie Wilson, by Deputy Sheriff
Charlston, as hla lost Marion.
I
ins measures to thoroughly organise
for the campaign of 1900, a committee
be selected, of which the President of
this association shall be a. member.
"That said committee be requested to
co-operate with the national commit?
tee in perfecting a thorough organisa?
tion of the Democratic party through?
out all the States and the Territories of
the United States, the president of this
association to name the committee."
Judge Tarvln then announced the fol?
lowing members of the committee:
John P. Altgeld, of Illinois; George
Fred. Williams, Massachusetts; W. Y.
Overmeyer, Indiana; M. J. Srmonln,
Kentucky; Allen V. Clark, Indiana, and
James P. Tarvln, Kentucky.
VICTORY IN 1900.
The first speaker was P. II. Hardin,
of Mercer county. He was greeted with
rounds of hearty applause. The speak?
er gave it as his opinion that blmetal
Ism is the true issue confronting the
Democracy of the United States, and
the one upon which, with W. J. Bryan
at the head, the party will march to
triumphant victory In 1900. Though the
Democratic party In the selection of a I
Presidential candidate for the campaign
of 1900 need look no further than \V. J.
Bryan and the Chicago platform, the'
trust Issue* .he thought, was of secon?
dary importance to the question of bi?
metallism.
Hon. W, J. Stone made a brief speech
Invoking the adherence of all good
Democrats to the principles enunciated
In 1S96 at Chicago. With these in sisht
and Mr. Bryan at the helm, the good
ship of Democracy could scarcely fail
to reach the port of success.
NIGHT SESSION.
Mr. Tarvln called the nicht session
to order at 8 o'clock and Introduced
Hon. Henry Warren of Indiana.
"We Bhull go Into the next coin-;;
patgn," Mr. Warren said, "not on the
defensive, but on the agresstve; we
shall not go inti> the next campaign
with the odium of in ^management, but
the Republicans will."
M'KINLEY AN ODIUM,
lie paid his respects to the admin
Istration, saying McKinley was an
odium throughout the land. He closed
with an exhortation to stand by bimet?
allism and victory would be the result.
Am uproar of applause greeted Mr.
Warren ns he took his seat.

QEN. FINLEY SPEAKS.
President Tarvin Introduced Hon. E.
B. Finley. of Ohio, who spoke In pnrt
as follows:
"In addition to the vital Issues pre?
sented by the Chicago platform, we will
have the new question of the so-called
territorial expansion, which, being an
untried experiment nnd a departure
from the American system, is perhaps
the most important question that the
American people have had to meet.
NO BACKWARD STEPS.
"In forming our tine of battle of 1001
I am opposed to taking any backward
steps. I am for tlie Chicago platform th
Its entirety, without tho change of a
single line or word.
"We cannot enter Into an alliance
with this coterie of so-called Demo?
crats without abandoning the principles
which wo defended In 1896. Thoro Is
nothing In common between us.
Our Interests are antagonistic. They
would control the government by the
enforcement of a policy benefiting the
few. Wo seek n governmental policy for
the benefit of the nation.
Resolutions were adopted to-night
declaring that faith in bimetallism had
been vindicated, that relief to the conn
try could come only by fr.c coinage by
the Independent action of the United
States nt tho ratio of if. to 1: nnd that
paper money should be Issued only by
the government.
CHICAGO PLATFORM AND BRYAN.
That the National Convention in 1900
should adopt the Chicago platform j
without change.
That W. J. Bryan should be nomi?
nated for President.

touching the Phlllpplnb questloVi has
been un-American from first to last,
and In violation of principles expressed
In the declaration of war with Spain
and our treatment of the Filipinos has
been simply disgraceful.
"A viola thin of the principles of free
government In the Philippines may lie
but the fore-runner of a violation of;
the same principles of the United States
nnd we should neven entrust to any
President the newer to deprive our;
people of self government upon any
pretext whatever."

Arcos. the new Spanish minister, to?
day talked In an Informal manner on
his plans, official and personal. As to
the trestles, he said:
"There Is no purpose SO far as I know,
to take up the matter of new treaties
at once. At least I have given It no
consideration thus far and I do hot
know that either of the governments
has outlined Its plans, of course there
will be need of new treaties of com?
merce, navigation, extradition and the
like, but it remains to bo determined
what they will be.and when they will
be taken up."
The minister was asked as to the
plans for re-establishing tho consular
representation ?f Spain In leading cities
of this country, and in Cuba nnd In
the Philippines.
He said this service would be nt once
re-established and thai some of the'
lending consul generals wen? already
