Mou roe of Hempstead county. Utile Rock.—The Democratic State iConvention at Its closing session •elected eight delegates at large to the National convention, giving each dele gate one-half vote each. This was done only after a fight, and the vote in favor of sending eight instead of four delegates was close. An effort to table the motion providing for eight delegates was defeated by a vote of 264 to 306. The action of the majority in dou bling the number of delegates was the result. It was generally conceded, of a desire on the part of the leaders to prevent an attempt to break the slate which had been prepared. The feel ing which was caused by SenatorJas. I’. Clarke's attack upon William Jen nings llryan was seen in the conven tion, and the contest which it was predicted would develop in connec tion with the selection of the "Big Four” materialized when an effort was made to elect Senators Clarke and Davis, Congressman Robinson and John 11. liinemon, the four men pick ed by the Robinson forces. The con test was precipitated wnen Attorney •General Hal I, Norwood was nominal ed Then the proposal to elect eight Instead of four delegates at large was made, and with its adoption the threat ened fight was averted. Following the adopt ion of the mo tlon for the election of eight delegacs, Stephen lirumlidge of Searcy, Jerry C. South of Mountain Home, Champ Clark’s Arkansas manager, and Judge B. B. Hudgins of Harrison were nom inated, and they, together with Mr. Norwood and the four men first men tioned, were elected by acclamation. The name of X. O. Piudall of Little Rock was also presented, hut he fell a victim to the steam roller when the 'rules wore suspended and the eight other men nominated were elected by acclamation. wmi me election oi eignt ueiogates, no alternates at large were elected. Resolution Upholds Bryan. Another result of Senator Clarke's criticism of Mr. Bryan was the Intro duction of a resolution, signed by four delegates, declaring that the conven tion "disclaims any part in the at tack on Mr. Bryan, ami repp --s the same as uncalled for." The reso Union proceeded further to express faith and confidence In the pur/y, sincerity and statesmanship of Mr. Bryan. The resolution was read, and t ' ::r man Martin ordered it referred to the committee on resolutions it died with the commCtec, together with several other resolutions which were offer Saliors Landing Causes excitement. Havana.—American marines have landed on Cuban soil. To the number of 450 under command of Col. Lucas they came ashore at Ciamanera and proceeded by train to Guantanamo Otty. While it Is officially declared that this action was taken solely to protect American and other foreign properties, the impressions became general that It was a preliminary step to American Intervention. This cans considerable excitement at the1 rd. A resolution declaring in favor of woman suffrage died a similar death. Officials Chosen. Will Steel of Texarkana and J. D. lArbuckle of Roonevllle were elected electors at large by the convention. Judge William M. Kavanaugh of Lit tle Itock was elected member of the Democratic National Committee from Arkansas, without opposition, as had been expected. The State Central Committee was reorganized with Judge A. J. Walls of Lonoke and William G. Hutton of Little Rock as chairman and secretary respectively. Roth Judge Walls and Mr. Hutton were elected by acclama tion. "Grandfather Clause" Unendnrsed. Th convention refused to accept a plank in the platform, endorsing the proposed constitutional amendment No. 11, known as the "grandfather! clause." The plank was incorporated in the platform by the platform com mittee, but was stricken out by the adoption of a minority report submit ted l,\ Carroll Armstrong of Morril ton and J. I). Head of Texarkana. The chief argument made against the plank was that the convention should not take any stand upon the matter, especially in view of the fact that this 1 is a presidential year, and the further fact that the measure is to be submit ted to a vote of the people in Septem ber. The strongest opposition to the endorsement of the amendment came from the counties where the negro population is heaviest. 1 he convention voted to change tne il e of the stiii e primary in 11H4 from the last Wednesday in March to the last Wednesday in July, but this vote was reconsidered, and the date was left as it has been for a number of years the last Wednesday in March. The platform, with the exception of llie plank dealing with the "grand father clause." was adopted as submit ted by the committee. It follows close ly the lines of Congressman Robin son's speech delivered before the con vention Wednesday. It declares in favor of :i corrupt practices act. limit ing the amount of campaign expenses, and providing for full publicity, for legislation that will place the state on ti cash basis, for shorter legisla tive sessions, for reforms in the man agement of the I’niversity of Arkan sas, for the election of a hoard of peni- ■ tentlary commissioners by the gener al assembly, for government control of the Mississippi river levees, and for the preservation of the old sta'e house. There "as no reference in the plat form to the liquor question, and no at tempt was made in the convention to secure the adoption of any plank on this subject. I Little Ro. k.

He will bring to the governor's office that ability and devotion to duty that has crowned all his efforts with success. He has spent his whole life among the peo ple whom he will serve as chief execu tive. He is honored and trusted by them and his reputation as a statesman is co-ex tensive with the republic. In the state legislature, upon the political hustings, in the nations congress, like an Intellectual athlete, he has stood in tire arena of debate and challenged all comers, and up to the present moment is a total stranger to defeat. Most of his official service has been where a record was kept of all be said and did During the last months of the recent campaign the opposition turned upon him the fiercest searchlight that ever Illuminated a man s public and pri vate life and discovered to their dismay that Joe Robinson never deserted a cause or a friend. They discovered that upon all Important questions his posi tion h is been positive and fearless; that be has helped to create public senti ment instead of waiting to ride the tidal waves; that lie has never been an no tor in hypocrisy's masquerade.

The nomination of the state ticket and ins ruction of the delegates to ttie national convention to vote for Champ Clark for president were the chief !' ‘atures of the first day's session. Mr. Robinson had closed his speech of acceptance with an eloquent trib ute to Speaker Clark and before ibo applause which followed had died away, W. <1. Hutton of Pulaski coun ty secured recognition and offered the resolution Instructing the dele gates fur Clark, moving its adoption. This was seconded hv Harry (’. llaie and a number of other delegates. No opposition developed, and the resolu tion was adopted while the Clark en thusiasm was still at its height. Bennett Clark, son of Speaker Clark, who was in the contention, was called for by many of the delegates, and he thanked the convention on behalf of his father for its action. ecaivur »e i-a.iscs upru&r.

The storm broke wnen. after Senator Blarke had spoken of various candi dates for the presidency, someone in the crowd asked “What abouty Bryan?'

Senator Nixon had been in the hospi tal for about a week, an operation for nasal catarrh was performed. Spinal meningitis developed and the sena tor’s condition soon became critical.

This contin ued for several minutes, while ,he sen ator kept on speaking, without being heard by more than a few of tne dele gates. Purtial uuiet was finally re stored, and Senator Clarke closed > is speech with a prediction of Democratic victory at the pons in November. He was loudly cheered when he concluded. Robinson Forces tn Control. The Robinson forces were shown to be in complete control, as - hsen ex pected. and there was no opposition to any part of the program that had been prepared. Senator Davis Speaks Briefly. Following the nomination of the state ticket there were cries for Davis, and the junior senator responded in a brief speech. He stated that he had been so situated, from various causes, that he had been unable to give his entire time to the duties of his office, but that the interests of the people i had never suffered from his absence and he had never cast a vote in the interest of the Republicans. He stat ed that he had thought that with the end of his present term in the senate his political life should end, but that conditions had changed his intentions. “I want to say now to my political op ponents in Arkansas,' he declared, “that I am going to be in politics until I die. I love a fight. This conven tion is a tame affair compared to those that Jeff Davis run.” When Senator Davis concluded there were cries for Brundidge, but they were interrupted by the arrival of Mr. Robinson, who was introduced to the convention by Attorney General Norwood. urbanization or uonvcntton. The convention was called to order i by Chairman it. F. Milwee of the State ; Central Committee, and the roll was called by Secretary llruce T. Bullion, j After the invocation by the Rev. j Alonzo Monk, Chairman Milwee intro duced Steve Carrigan of Hope, who was selected as temporary chairman by the state committee, and Paul Tat tle. who was selected as temporary secretary. .Mr. Carrigan made a brief speech on taking the chair, hut announced that, contrary to the usual role, he would not maU' the “keynote" speech, leaving this to Mr. Robinson, the nomi nee for governor. M r Carrigan de clared that the affairs of the state are now in the most serious condi tion since the days of reconstruction, and that the man who will be elected as governor in September will assume ’he greatest responsibilities that have been placed upon any governor since the first Democratic governor follow ing the Civil war. He stated tHut he hoped the incoming governor would be given the power to free the state from the blight that has settled upon it, and restore it to the condition that prevailed in former years. On motion of W. (1. Hutton, the tem porary roll of the convention, as pre pared by the state committee, was made the permanent roll. Judge \V. M. Kavanaugh nominated Wm. H. Martin of Hot Springs for permanent chairman, and on motion I of J. H. Hinemon, Mr. Martin was elected by acclamation. Martin Prophesies Victory. Mr. Martin, in taking the gavel, stat ed that he believed this was to be a harmonious convention, i«i sharp r n trast with that Hold by the Republi cans a few weeks ago. He declared, that it did not require a prophetic vision to tell that this is to be a Democratic year. "This convention will select dele- i gates to the Baltimore convention, | where a champion will be selected to lead the hosts of Democracy to a foreordained victory," he said “One of the most pleasing features of this national convention will lie the im possibility of making a mistake." He mentioned the various candi dates for the presidential noinina tion, and concluded by springing a boom for Senator f’larke of Arkansas. He declared that Senator Clarke had become one of the greatest powers in the T'nited States Senate, and was recognized as the most able member of the senate on either the Democratic or Republican side. He declared that if it seemed appropriate that a fa- - vorite son tnouid receive the support of the state convention, no man couid bo more deserving of the honor than Senator Clarke. Mr. Martin recited the things that j have been accomplished by the Demo cratic house of representatives, and j declared that on this record the Demo crats will go before the people in No vember and gain a triumphant vic tory. Paul Little was made premanent secretary of the convention, and he announced the appointment of the fol lowing assistants: Kd Stanley, A. S. Tiays, .1. G, Burlingame, h. s.

An elder while baptizing converts at a revival meeting advanced with a wiry, sharp-eyed old chap into the water. He asked ihe usual question, whether there was any reason why the ordinance of baptism should not be administered. After a pause a tall, powerful-looking man who was looking quietly on remarked: “Elder, 1 don’t want to Interfere in yer business, but I want to say that this is an old sinner you have got hold of, and that one dip won’t do him any good; you’ll have to anchor him out in deep water over night."—Life.
