Great issues nre Is-fore tho people. Momentous Interests are at stake. Four years ago we nominated a man for the presidency from New York iu spite of tho protests of the delegation from that state. May 0sl forgive us for It. At that election we carried almost every state. Our hopes were then bright. But alas! our president forgetting the tariff Issue on which we had so grandly won brought confusion into his jwu ly by striking down with traitorous hind the only apology that still rein tinei for the coinage of the (sxiple's silver. As a result tho democ racy of Illinois today has no representa tive in comrress. Will He No Ktraddle. "The rank ami Hie of the democratic part" hasnlwoys Ist-n for the free coinage of gold and silver at the old ratio. But the declaration of tho jtarty has hereto fore Ihvii eouche 1 In equivocal terms. We are told by some of our friends that for harmony s sake wo most conciliate. - we must straddle. There will Is no strad dling t his campaign. Wo must be In to 1 men or gold men. The duty to act fear lessly is upon us. It Is the MHplo against tho autts-rat. I have confidence to bo lieve that the cause of the people will triumph If we fail now let us register a vow in Heaven are to ctvise until the wrongs tif the js'tiple are redressed." frequent Applause. The temporary chairman was frequently Interrupted by applause. When he said that four years ago the Democratic party of tho state tuptortcd a man from New York, and may God forgive them for it, there was an outburst of applause lasting several minutes.

We believe that tho tariff for rcveuuu ouly will extend American oommere to the utmost part of the earth, and that untrameled Indus try would advance our country to the foremost place among other nations. We are, therefore, firm In our adherenoe to the doctrine enunciated by the last na tional Democratic convention that this government should Impose no tariff taxes except for revenue. . . Opposed to Free Hllver. 'We believe that the demands of a com merce built upon the broad and enlight ened doctrine of free trade requires a cur rency that cannot be discredited la any civilized country. Realising this logical demand for the best money for Interna tional trade; realizing also the dangers of a flat ourrenor In domestlo use, and aware that the present condition of commercial distress calls for the patriotic and sturdy maintenance of national honor and finan cial Integrity, we doclare ourselves op posed to the free and unlimited coinage of silver, and in favor of gold, the highest monetary standard of the world.

Adjournment was then taken until afternoon. Monday night both factions held caucuses. The silver men agreed to send eight delegates to Chicago, and as there seems to be no formidable opposition to the caucus ac tion, It will probably hold good. A draft of the platform was seen by an Associated Prem representative, and it de clares unequivocally for 16 tol; against tariff, and is at cross purpose with the St. Louis platform. At almost every turn the gold men In caucus at night agreed that it would lie best to send a delegation to Chicago to contest seats, and they will probably do that. lie volt Against the Gold Flank.
