WHO READ A LIVE NEWSPAPER ! NEVER MISS THE DAILY GLOBE VOL.X. DONE SPOUTING. No Further Flow of Eloquence Expected From the Polit ical Geysers. Nine Presidential Aspirants Placed in Nomination at Chicago. Sherman, Depew, Harrison, Alger, Gresham and Alli son, Heavy Weights, flawley, Rusk and Fitler Being Too Light to Make Trouble. Against the Field Is the Dark Horse Over the Sea. Balloting Will Begin Just One Hour Before Noon To-Day. Strong Probabilities of An Early Stampede to the Plumed Knif ht. ; A Platform That Is as Rickety 8 As the Party Be hind It. Oratorical Davis, of Minne apolis, Makes the Effort of His Life, While Hartley, of Duluth, Makes a Very Rash Promise. 'Chicago, June 21.— As has been pre viously intimated, the two positive forces in this convention are Blame and Sherman. That was never more ap parent than in to-day's convention. Sherman's great strength was shown openly and to good advantage. Many of the spectators said a ballot immediately following the great demonstration at the close of Gov. Foraker's speech would have resulted in Sherman's nomination. But those who were looking beneath the surface discover signs of unusual activ ity among the Blame men. Steve Elkins was as busy about the conven tion hall as he was four years ago. His lieutenants were also in motion. " The Blame influence was par ticularly strong about the platform of the chairman. The demonstration for Sherman, the test of Sherman's strength on the roll call Wednesday evening when his friends rallied 250 votes for Ma hone, with a certainty of having nearly fifty more which they refused to uncover, has stirred un the friends of Blame, and tempted them to abandon their pro gramme of nominating Blame only after a prolonged effort to to select another, candidate. The interview with Carne gie, in which he stated that Blame will accept if nominated, printed this morn ing, has tended to give THE FRIENDS OF BEAINE more boldness and confidence. It is now tolerably clear that the Blame men do not intend to permit the nomination of Sherman if they can help it. These two strong lines of action within the Republican party are again to meet face to face. The programme is to pre vent a nomination to-morrow, and to have a conference of the friends of the candidates to-morrow night, but if necessary, Blame will be sprung upon the convention at any moment. The difficulty which Blain's friends have to face is how to net the nomination for him in such a manner that he will ac cept it— that is, without RIDING OVER THE BIGHTS or chances of any of the other candi dates. The Blame men have had much difficulty in restraining the impetuous Californians, who threatened to bring matters to an issue at once. That was accomplished by giving them the chairmanship, and in the morn ing California, it is predicted, will vote for Blame without form ally placing his name in nomination. Depew was to-day appealed to by some of the Blame managers to hold his New York strength till they give the word, and then lead the Blame stampede. The theory was that if New York, the decisive state, should thus demand Blame, the remainder of the country, including the friends of other candi dates, must submit in good grace. But Depew declined to enter into any such scheme. He said he had once before de nied any intention on his part to pose as a stalking horse for beaine. and he now reiterates that declaration. Depew is indignant at Piatt, Hiscock, and Phelps, who some days ago organ ized a combination against him, and have prevented him getting the enthusiastic support of New York as well as the vote of New Jersey and Connecticut and other votes inNew Eng land. What Depew will do still remains a conundrum. He admits . that he has 110 hope of the nomination himself, but will not indicate what his course will be. His intimate friends believe he will join Warner Miller in throwing as many votes as possible to Sherman. A conference of the Blame men was held to-night. Senator Hiscock, ex- Senator Piatt, Powell Clayton, William Walter Phelps and S. 13. Elkins were present. . It was agreed that Mr. Blame is willing to take the nomination if it can be secured in the right way, but that it is the duty of his friends to make an honest effort TO XAME ANOTHER CANDIDATE. They" agreed to support Gen. Har rison, of Indiana, beginning as soon as there shall be signs of a breaking up of the complimentary delegations, proba bly after the first ballot to-morrow morning. This will raise Harrison's strength up to nearly 200 votes, and bring on a direct contest between him and Sherman. In this shape the hope is bal loting for some time, with the other can didates holding their ground and no nomination resulting. On the first signs of Harrison's failure and Sherman's success, Blame is to be brought in and an effort to stempede the conven tion to him. If this pregramme be carried out the probabilities are that Sherman will stand his ground and keep Harrison in the rear for some time, and that when the break comes, to-morrow or next day, BLAINE WILL BE NOMINATED. Some of the Blame strength is in the Sherman columns, some of it in Alger's support, Harrison's, Allison's and Gresham's. Elkins to-day claimed there were 500 Blame men in the con vention, and the most likely ticket at this hour is Blame and Harrison. The other candidates are dwarfed by this struggle between the Blame forces and Sherman, though there is a growing belief that Judge Gresham is the strongest man. Allison is still well thought of as a compromise can didate, and McKinley and Foraker, par ticularly the latter, who has become very popular, are talked of as dark horses. Alger and Depew appear to be out of the race. Phelps is the only man talked of for vice president, but Mr. Phelps said to-night he did not believe he could be nominated on account of the intense op position of Depew's. friends in New York. TRUE TO HIS PROMISE, Estee Opens the Convention on Time, With a Sparse Attend ance. .. . ;'.V-'.v _>'?., Special to the Globe. Chicago, June 21.— At 10:08, although not more than one-third of the delegates were in their seats, Chairman Estee rapped for order and declared the con vention opened • for business. The prayer with which th proceedings were opened was offered by Rev. Thomas E. Greene, rector of St. Andrew's Episco pal church, Chicago. Mr. Greene's mag nificent voice filled the great auditorium in a way that left nothing to be desired. He petitioned the Throne of Grace as follows: Let us pray. Almighty God, Father of all men. Ruler of all nations. King of kings, we render Thee our grateful homage and thanks giving for the rich abundance of blessings that Thou has vouchsafed to this land in our time and day. We bless Thee for the past, with its mighty weight ot history, for the present, with its magnificent sweep ot possi bility, and for the rich hope of the future; and we pray that our hearts may ever in humble reverence bless Thy name for Thy great goodness. Have mercy, we beseech Thee, upon this whole land; cleans;? it from impurity and exalt it in righteousness. From intemper ance and impurity, from dishonesty and corruption, from deceit and fraud, from in timidation and tyranny, we beseech Thee, good Lord, deliver us. May Thy kingdom come and Thy will be done among men, and may Thy peace of God brood with blessed benediction! over our land. Bestow Thy blessings, we beseech Thee, upon this con vention, assembled for the grave concerns of government. With Thy infinite wisdom di rect its deliberations and so guide us by Thy holy spirit thai we may ever seek Thy honor and Thy glory, Bless, we beseech Thee, our rulers and all who are over us in authority, and grant that he may be exalted to the chief rule of this great nation whose mind is cleanest, whose heart is purest and whose strength is in the mighty One of Israel. Di rect us, we beseech Thee, in all of our doings with Thy most precious faith, and further us with Thy continual help, that in all our works begun, continued and ended, in Thee, we may glorify Thy holy name and finally, by Thy mercy, enter" into Thy eternal kingdom, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. - . VETERAN WIRE-PULLERS. The New National Committee Which Will Labor in Vain. Special to the Globe. Chicago, June — At the conclusion of the prayer, the chairman touched the electric bell as a signal for the band to render some selections, but there was no response, the wind gammers not yet having put in appearance. Under the direction of the chairman, the secretary proceeded to call the roll of states in order that the delegations might desig nate the member to represent each state upon the national committee. The list as far as completed is as follows: ;'.*.7" Alabama— Youngblood. Arkansas Califonia— M. 11. De Young. Colorado — W. A. Hamill. Connecticut Samuel Fessenden. Delaware — Daniel A. Leigh tou.

The Platform On Which the Party Will Go Down to Death. Special to the Globe. Chicago, June 21.— McKinley, of Ohio, chairman of the resolutions com mittee, entered the hall, was recognized by the chair and he arose to make the report of the committee. The conven vention recognizing one of the dark horses in the presidential race, and a popular one, also, cheered lustily, and when Mr. McKinley advanced to the platform to read his report the applause redoubled and became almost . an ova tion. In a clear, distinct voice Mr. Mc- Kinley read the committee's report as follows: The Republicans of the United States as sembled by their delegates in national con- : vention pause on the threshold of their pro ceedings to honor the memory of their first great leader, the immortal- champion of liberty and the rights of the people—Abra ham Lincoln, aud to ' cover also with wreaths of . - - -~ c - ; . ., , IMPERISHABLE REMEMBRANCE 'I .• .7 and gratitude the heroic names of our later leaders who have been more recently called away from our councils Grant, Garfield, Ar thur, Logan, Conkling. May their memories SAINT PAUL, MINN. FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 22, 1888.— TEN PAGES. be faithfully cherished. We also recall with our greetings and with prayer for his recovery, the nnme of one of our living heroes, whose memory will be treasured in the history both of Republicans and of the republic— name of that noble soldier and favorite child of victory, Philip 11. Sheridan. In die spirit of tho: c great l.aders, and of our own devotion to human liberty, and with that hostility to all forms of depotism and op pression, which is the fundamental idea of the Rcpubli an p utr; v.c send fraternal con gratulations to our fellow Americans of Brazil,, upon their ;- ,- V-: ' GEFAT ACT OP emancipation, which completed the abolition of slavery throughout the two American continents. We earnestly hope that we may soon con gratulate our fellow-citizeus of Irish birth upon the peaceful recovery of home rule for Ireland. We reaffirm our unswerving de votion to the national constitution, and to the indissoluble union of the states; to the autonomy reserved to the states under the constitution: to the personal rights aud liberties of citizens in all the states aud ter ritories in the Union, aud espectally to the supreme and sovereign light of every lawful citizen, rich or poor, native or foreign born, white or black to cast one free ballot m pub lic elections, and to have that ballot duly counted. We hold the free and honest popu lar ballot and the just and equal representa tion of all the people to be the foundation of our republican government, and demand effective legislation lo secure the integrity and purity of elections, which are the fountains of all public authority. We charge that the present administration and the Democratic majority in congress owe their existence to the suppression of | the ballot by a criminal nullification of the constitution and laws of the United States. We are uncompromisingly in favor of the American system OF protection: '-,: ,' we protest against its destruction as proposed by the president and his party. They serve the interests of Europe: we will support the interests of America. We accept the issue, and confidently appeal to the people for their judgment. The protective system must be maintained. . Its abandonment has always been followed by general disaster to all in terests, except those of the usurer and the sheriff. We denounce the Mills bill as de structive to the general business, the labor and the farming interest of the country, and we heartily indorse the consistent and patri otic action of the Republican representatives in congress in opposing its passage. We con demn the proposition of the Democratic party to place, wool on the free list, and we insist that the duties thereon shall be ad justed and maintained so as to furnish full and adequate protection to that industry. The Republican party would effect all needed reduction of the national revenue, by repeal ing the taxes upon tobacco, which are an an noyance and burden to agriculture, and the tax upon spirits used in the arts, and for me chanical purposes; and by such REVISION OP THE TARIFF law as will tend to check imports of such articles as are produced by our people, the production of which gives employment to our labor, and release from import duties those articles of foreign production (except luxuries), the like of which cannot be pro-' duced at home. If there shall remain a larger revenue than is requisite for the wants of the government, we favor the entire re peal of internal taxes, rather than the sur render of any part of our protective system, at the joint behest of whisky trusts and the agents of foreign manufacturers. We declare our hostility to the introduction into this country of foreign contract labor, and of Chinese labor, alien to our civilization ' and our constitution; and we demand the rigid enforcement of the existing laws against it. and favor such immediate legislation as will exclude such labor from our shores. We de clare our opposition to all ■-.:: •■' COMBINATIONS OF CAPITAL organized in trusts or otherwise, to control arbitrarily the condition of trade among our citizens, and we recommend to congress, and the state legislatures in their respective juris dictions, such legislation as will prvevent the execution of all schemes to oppress the peo ple by undue charges on their supplies, or by unjust rates for the transportation of their products to market. We approve the legisla tion by congress to prevent alike unjust bur dens and unfair discriminations between the states.. We reaffirm the policy of appropriat ing the public lands of the United States to be homesteads tor American citizens and settlers, not aliens, which the Republican parly established in 1802, against the per sistent opposition of the Democrats in con gress and which has brought our great West ern domain into such magnificent develop ment. The restoration of unearned railroad land grants to the public domain tor the use of actual settlers, which was begun under the administration of President Arthur, should be continued. We deny that the Dem ocratic party has ever restored one ACRE ". to the people, but declare that by the joint action of the Republicans and Democrats, about 50,000.000 acres of unearned lands, originally granted for the construction of railroads, have been restored to the public domain in pursuance of the conditions in serted by the Republican party in the original grants. We charge the Democratic ad ministration with failure to execute the laws securing to settlers titles to their homesteads, and with usiug appropriations made for that purpose to harass innocent settlers with spies and prosecutions under the false pre tense of exposing frauds and vindicating the law. The government by congress of the territories is based upon necessity only, to the end that they may become states in the Union; therefore, whenever the conditions of population, material resources, public in telligence and morality are such as to insure a staple local government therein, the people of such territories should be permitted, as a right inherent in them, to form for them selves constitutions and state governments and be admitted into the Union. Pending the preparation for statehood, all officers therefore should be selected from the bona fide residents of the territory wherein they are to serve. SOUTH DAKOTA SHOULD OF RIGHT ' be immediately admitted as a state in the Union, under the constitution framed and ' adopted by her people, and we heartily in dorse the action of the Republican senate in twice passing bills for her admission. The refusal of the Democratic house of repre sentatives, for partisan purposes, to favor ably consider these bills, is a willful viola tion of the sacred American principle of local self-government, and merits the con demnation of all just men. The pending bills in the senate for acts to enable the peo ple of Washington, North Dakota and Mon tana territories to form constitutions and es tablish state governments should be passed without unnecessary delay. The Republican party pledges itself to do all in its power to facilitate the admission of the territories of New Mexico, Wyoming, Idado and Arizona to the enjoyment of self-government as states, such of them as are now qualified, as soon as possible, and the others as soon as they may become so. The political power of the Mormon church in the territories, as ex ercised in the past, is a . MENACE TO FREE INSTITUTIONS too dangerous longer to be suffered. There fore, we pledge the Republican party to ap propriate legislation asserting the sovereignty of the nation in all territories where the same is questioned, and in furtherance of that ena, to place upon the statute books legisla tion stringent enough to divorce the political from the ecclesiastical power, and thus stamp out the attendant wickedness of po lygamy. The Republican party is in favor of the use of both gold aud silver as money, aud condemns the policy of the Democratic administration in its efforts to demonetize silver. We demand the reduction of letter postage to 1 cent per ounce. In a republic like ours, where the citizen is the sovereign, and the official the servant, where no power is exercised except by th will of the people, it is important that the sovereign— the peo ple—should possess intelligence THE FREE SCHOOL is the promotor of that intelligence which is to preserve us a free nation; therefore the state or nation, or both combined, should support free institutions of learning," suffi cient to afford to every child growing up in the laud the opportunity of a good common school education. We earnestly recommend that prompt action be taken by congress in the enactment of such legislation as will best secure the rehabilitation of our American merchant marine, and we protest against the passing by congress of a free ship bill, as cal culated to work injustice to labor by lessen ing the wages of those engaged in preparing materials, as well as those directly employed in our ship yards. We demand appropria tions for the early rebuilding of our navy; for the construction of coast fortifications and modern ordnance and other approved ' modern means of defense for the protection of our defenseless harbors and cities; for the payment of just pensions to our soldiers ;" for necessary works of national importance in the improvement of harbors and the channel of internal, coastwise and foreign commerce for the encouragement of the shipping inter ests of the Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific states, as well as for the payment of the maturing public debt. . This policy will give EMPLOYMENT TO OUR LABOR, activity to our various industries, increase the security of our country, promote trade, open new and direct markets for our produce and cheapen the cost of transportation. We affirm this to be far better for our country ' than the Democratic policy of loaning the goverment's- money without interest to "pet : banks." , The - conduct of foreign affairs by the • present administration has been distin- - guished by its inefficiency and its cowardice. ; Having withdrawn from the senate all pend- ", ing treaties effected by Republican adminis- ,j tration for the removal of foreign burdens ; and restrictions upon our commerce and for ■ its' extension into better markets, it has, '; neither -effected nor proposed any other in. . their stead. Professing adherence to ;•;-.;. -. THE MONROE DOCTRINE, — ,"::": it ohas seen with idle complacency the ex tension of foreign influence in Central Amer ica and of foreign trade everywhere among our neighbors. It has refused to charter. . sanction or encourage any American organi zation for constructing the Nicaragua canal, a work of vital importanoe to the . mainte nance of the Monroe doctrine, and of our national influence in Central and South America, and necessary for the development of trade with our Pacific territory, with South- America and with the islands and further coasts of the Pacific ocean. We arraign the present Democratic administration for its i weak and unpatriotic treatment of the fish eries question, and its pusillanimous sur render of the essential privileges to which ■ our fishing vessels are entitled to in Canadian ports under the treaty of 1818, the recipro cal maritime legislation of 183'! and the comity of nations, and which Canadian fish ing vessels receive in the ports of the United, States. We condemn the policy of the pres ent administration and the Democratic ma- - jority in congress • TOWARDS OUR FISHERIES as unfriendly and conspicuously unpatriotic and as tending to destroy a valuable national industry and an indispensable resource of de fense against a foreign enemy. The name of American applies alike to ail citizens of the Republic, and imposes upon all alike the same obligation of obedience to the laws. At the same time that citizenship is and must . be the panoply and safeguard of him who wears it, and protect him, whether high or low, rich or poor, in all his civil rights. It should and must afford him protection at home and follow and protect him. abroad in, : whatever land he may be in a lawful trade. The men who abandoned the ■ Republican party in 1884 and continue to adhere to the Democratic party have deserted not only the cause of honest . government, of sound fi nance or freedom and purity of the ballot, but especially have . • . . DESERTED THE CAUSE of reform in the civil.service. We will not fail to keep our pledges because they have broken theirs, or because their candidate has broken his. We therefore repeat our declara tion of 18.84, to-wit: '-The reform of the civil service auspiciously begun under the Republican administration, should be com pleted by the further extentiou of the reform system already established by law, to all the grades of the service to which it is applicable. The spirit and purpose of the reform should , be observed in all executive appointments,, and all laws at variance with the object of existing reform legislation should be repealed, to the end that the dangers to free institu tions, which lurk in the power of official i patronage, may be wisely and effectively avoided. The gratitude "of the nation to the defenders of the union cannot' ' be measured by laws. The legislation of congress should con form to the pledges made x by a loyal people, and be so enlarged and ex tended as to provide against the possibility that any man who honorably wore the fed eral uniform shall become ail inmate of an almshouse, or dependent upon private char ity. In the presence of an overflowing treas- : ury, it WB-»y ...... WOULD BE A PUBLIC SCANDAL to do less for those whose valorous services preserved the government. We denounce; the hostile spirit shown by President Cleve land in his numerous vetoes of measures for pension relief, and the action of the Demo-; cratic House of Representatives in refusing even a consideration of general pension legislation. ■■'■':. - - In support of the principles herewith enun- : ciated, we invite the co-operation of patriotic men of all parties, and especially of all work- ; iugmen, whose prosperity is seriously threat ened by the free trade policy of the present ;■ administration. The reading of the platform was fre- j quently interrupted by applause, which greeted the references made to the abo- . lition of slavery in the Brazil, and was I very enthusiastic upon the reference ot. the speaker to the recovery of home rule in Ireland. The reference to the right of every American citizen to cast a free ballot and have it duly counted was received with great and continued applause. When the speaker read the; portion of the platform referring to the : American system of protection," loud cheers broke forth from the delegates and audience. Almost all the delegates rose to their feet, and waving hanker chiefs and fans, continued the applause for several minutes. The reference to the Mills bill, indorsing the Republican representatives in congress in opposing its passage, was greated with cheers. ■ Applause also followed the plank which condemned the proposition of the Dem ocratic party to place ; WOOL ON THE FREE LIST. The objection to the introduction into this country of foreign contract labor and Chinese labor was specially em phasized by cheers. That part of the report favoring the admission of the territories was heartily applauded, as was also the plank condemning the Mormon church in the territories. When it was recommended that letter postage be reduced to 1 cent per ounce there was much applause. A liberal' and popular common school education was also cheered. The plank in refer ence to liberal pensions was greeted with great applause. The convention showed its approval of civil service re form by applauding loudly. The point referring to the protection" of the old soldiers of the war by providing pen sions for their support was received with ■ loud and continuous applause. The portion referring to the action of the Democrats in congress in refusing even a Consideration of general pension legis lation was also loudly applauded. WITH A HOWL OP APPRO V The Platform Goes Through With a Rush. Special to the Globe. Chicago, June 21.— Upon -the con clusion of the reading of the report of the committee, which, was received with long and continued cheers, the chair recognized Mr. Maine, of . Maryland,'* who said: "I desire to move the unanimous adoption of those resolutions, and that I we may more cordially express our- ; sentiment, that we do so by a rising : vote. But before that motion is put, I beg the indulgence of the gentlemen of ■.■ ! this convention for a very few brief ' words.

Horr, of Michigan, seconded the mo tion of Mr. Maine and called for the previous question. New Jersey and Missouri seconded the call, and at this time the delegates all over the house were standing up and called the name of their state as seconding the call. The main question was put and carried. On the question of the adoption of the re port of the committee on resolutions every delegate in the hall arose to his feet amid wild and enthusiastic cheer ing and the waving of hats and hand kerchiefs. The chair announced the adoption of the report as unanimous, and this announcement was followed with great applause and cries of "lnger soll." v-'"\ CONNECTICUT'S CHOICE.

Chicago, June 21.— When the secre tary called "Illinois" a mighty shout went up, and as Leonard Swett ascended the platform to present the name of. Walter Q. Gresham there was redoubled cheering. -He said: - - •"■ . ; "'-;-'; This presence recalls a scene enacted, in this city twenty-eight years < ago. That was the second : national Republi can convention, • and the first nomina- j tion of . Abraham- .Lincoln. At this inauguration the Republican party first assumed- t.h e reins of gov ernmental con trol. With un important in terruptions the Democratic party had con trolled our na tional policy for thirty-two years. The country in 1861 stood upon the verge of politi cal and finan- W.

The four years of war produced : heroes, sacrifices and suffering without parallel and a reunited country. The "twenty years of peace * increased the population, internal improvements, manufactories, useful inventions, com forts in homes and the general develop ment of all classes, with a rapidity uu equaled in the history of the world within the time named. In the lan guage of Daniel Webster, we may say of this Republican rule, the suffering and the fruits of the war, anil the un paralleled prosperity of this peace, CT'THE PAST IS AT LEAST SECURE." We have assembled again to select a president for 00,000,000 of free people. Who most in character is the very es sence of these people. Who, of all the names suggested, will draw support most largely from all classes? Who can best bring together and reunite the broken fragments of our 1 party? Who by personal courage and sublime confi-* deuce in his own convictions, is an ideal leader of the American people? . Who ) most strikingly stands for cosmopolitan American character? These are the questions of the hour addressed to us all. I suggest the name of. "i W ALTER Q. GRESHAM, OF INDIANA and Illinois, and invite a thoughtful con sideration of some of the reasons why he 'should be nominated: He was born of sturdy and rugged parents, in Harrison : county," Hid., fifty-seven years ago. and has spent one-third of his life in labor 'upon a farm. He acquired,- by nature and education, a profound belief in the fundamental doctrines of government and the union of the state, "one and in 'seperable," as taught by the lives and i example of Washington and Hamilton. ; Clay and Webster, Lincoln and Thad ! Stevens, and a disbelief in and aversion I for the political heresies of John C. Cal houn, Breckinridge, Jefferson Davis and Lamar property in man, and i . . .THE RIGHT OF SECESSION. ! He has always been an unwavering and inflexible Republican. One third of a century ago he organized the - party of [Fremont and Dayton in his native county, which consisted, all told, of four people. In 1860, then at the age of twenty-nine, he was elected to the state legislature at the same time Mr. Lin coln was elected president, from a strong Democratic county and by- the aid of German votes. There he origin ated and passed a law which authorized Oliver P. Morton, our greatest war gov ernor, to organize and arm, at the ex pense of the state, any regiment any where in the state. We owe the peace and loyalty of Indiana at this critical period to the admirable working of this law and.the fact that she was not be hind the call of the president one mo ment in . furnishing her quota of men. After performing this service, of great value -to; his state, he selected 1,000 young Neighbors and friends and ' - MARCHED' AT . THEIR HEAD into Kentucky, with Gen. Sherman, at the very beginning of : the war. : These forces aided the loyal i element there in holding true to the Union,' the northern part ; v of that state, while the southern part broke off and went with the re bellion. But . for the presence of these troops the Ohio river would have proba bly been the dividing line and southern Ohio, Indiana and Illinois would have been the first battleground. He served with Grant at Shiloh and Yicksburg and was a distinguished figure with Sher man in his march upon Atlanta in 1864. He was frequently promoted for gallant conduct on the battlefield and was called upon when sharp work was to be done.and finally fell,pierced by aminnie ball, while leading his division into the shot and shell of the enemy at the bloody fight of Leggett's Hill, in the suburbs of Atlanta. Carried to the rear, he met Col. Richard S. Tuthill, whose presence now adorns the judicial bench of this state, and who was then a com mander of batteries of artillery making their way to the front. The .;V--- SCENE WAS ONE OF CONFUSION, of the tramping of horses' hoofs and the rattling of artillery and caissons dash ing into battle. Col. Tuthill turned aside a moment to Gen. Gresham, then bleeding on a stretcher, and said, in quiringly: "Are you hurt badly?" The fight was not all out of him yet, and, turning his pale face to see who made the inquiry, he replied : "You had better hurry your batteries to the front. They are needed there." He was placed in a freight car and hurried to the North. The next day he awoke from a morphine sleep in a dazed con dition, and said to a soldier in attend ance, "Whose body is that?" pointing to a coffin in the same car with him. "That is the dead body of your com mander, Gen. McPherson." Thus the commander of the army and the divi sion commander had mingled their blood upon the red field at Leggett's hill. Wherever, in all the war, the bat tle's wreck lay thickest, there was the MANLY FORM OF GEN. GRESHAM. a type of enthusiastic heroism and an inspiration to the soldier who followed him. But it is not in his military ca reer, dashing and brilliant as that is, that we find the crowning reason for his nomination. For him "Peace hath her victories, no less renowned than war." After his relations with the army were voluntarily severed, he was called by President Arthur into his cabinet to the office of postmaster-general. Here he greatly promoted the expedition of the mails, shortening materially the time of their transit across the country. He also aided in reducing the letter, news paper and parcel postage, thereby sav ing millions to the people and encourag ing the dissemination of literature and intelligence. He was also the first vig orously to enforce the United States statutes against the abuse of the mails by lottery venders and other swindling schemes, by which the credulous and weak-minded were imposed upon and their confidence betrayed. It is, how ever, in ths discharge of his duties as United States judge that HIGHER AND CROWNING GLORIES of his character appear. The image of Justice among the Greeks was repre sented as blindfolded, holding the scales balanced in her hand, but unable to see the rank or standing of the parties before her. Judge Gresham has been the living ideal of this Grecian figure. Unmoved by the threatening of power, he has gone straight on in the line of his duty to the integrity and right of the question under consideration and has administered justice to the high and low, the rich and poor, with a steady but impartial hand. The contestants in one of the greatest railroad strikes that has arisen in our country have also been before him. By a wise and happy de cision, he. administered exact justice to • all, prevented the strike from becoming • universal, public . traffic from. .being paralyzed, the nation from convulsion and the most serious damage to an un known number- of individuals. '., Wher ever in all his life he has touched any thing, it has been improved, beautified .or adorned. He has always had the happy faculty of quietly doing the right thing at the right time, and he possesses in. his own great character all the good qualities of the Republican party. Under his leadership the campaign cry will be :'; "LIVE and LET LIVE." There will be no attacks on capital and no attacks upon labor, but the country will march on with gigantic strides in settlement, development and growth. The true level and system will be adopted of making all men equal be fore the law and placing all men's feet on a level. Then the tall man may thank God for his height and the short man must be contented with his short ness. In personal characteristics, in the manner and condition of his candi dacy, and in his relations to the presi dential office, Judge Gresham is more like Abraham Lincoln than any other living man. The movement in his be-' half, like the movement for Lincoln, Is the spontaneous and unorganized action of the people. Like Lincoln, Gresham is not working for the presidential of fice. He believes that this exalted of fice should never be sought and never declined. Like him, too, he believes that causes which tend great conse quences should be left to work out their results unaided, and that they cannot be materially hastened or impeded by personal interference. Like Lincoln in character, honest and simple, but ro bust, fearless in danger, full of justice and of noble heart, he stands out in prominence AS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE! -.:: May l also be pardoned for saying in this august presence that back in 1849, at the age of twenty-four. I first met Abraham Lincoln, he being then forty one. Ever afterwards I sat at his feet, as Saul of Tarsus sat at the feet of Gamaliel, and was permitted as we walked together the journey of life "to lean on his own great arm for support." I watched his thoughtful face when the news first reached him that he had re ceived a large vote for vice president at Philadelphia when Fremont and Day ton were nominated, and when the thought of great political preferment took root in his mind. 1 know from this intimate relation how confidence and sympathy may exist between a great leader and the people without either knowing the other. I can never forget how in moments of great doubt he agonized, watched and listened for tokens of guidance from the common people as a mariner watches for the sun, to learn where he is and whither he is drifting through the darkness and mists of the storm. The same symathy and confidence exist between Gresham and the people that existed between Lincoln and the people. His heart, also, has -"-*■■': 'j? : - --. -.; BEATEN IN SYMPATHY ~ with the sons of toil, for he has labored with them in sunshine and in the cold. He, too. has been promoted from their ranks, and knows the taste of poverty, and like them has earned his bread "in the sweat of - his face." He has never forgotten their lives of privation and self-denial in their hard struggles for existence. Whether bondmen or free- . men, he had that sublime faith in their honesty and patriotism, that like Lin coln he was willing to have his body pierced with bullets in their behalf. The rich, too, have found ample protec tion and the adjustment of every right iv the equipose of his character. He has always stood with his party for the . protection of * American labor against foreign competition and has always be lieved in ; fair wages for fair work. He has " advocated liberal pensions for tbe maimed, worn and dependent defenders of the Union. -He knows by experience " how the rebel bullet tears and hurts,' for he himself has-been -.wounded . and car ried on a stretcher from the field of bat tie and has borne the pains and sees the - need of the decrepit and' health- broken soldier. - We should also not forget that this nation has '. arrived at that stage of Continued on Sixth Page.o A PLAIN_PLANK.

Chicago, June 21.— clean cut phraseology of the platform adopted to day fixed the status of the Republican party, as the party of protection for protection's sake. It is the best plat form the Republican party ever stood upon, in the .sense that it is the most honest . one. .It .;"s --an "illuminated photograph of the Pennsylvania tariff idea, and if the Republican party . has a mission !on earth it is.to perpetuate the Pennsyl vania doctrine of protection. But what an awful bait of crow it dishes up for Minnesota Republicans, to swallow. Compared with their state plat form of two years ago, it suggests the picture of a house divided against itself. I felt sorry for some of the Northwestern delegates to-day while the platform was being read. When McKinley, with loud voice and in an emphatic tone, read the sentence, "We uncompromisingly declare in favor of the American system of pro tection," all the delegates from the East and the colored coherents from the South, together with a sprinkling of Westerners, arose to their feet and rent the air with approving clamor. But most of the lowa delegates, about one half of the Minnesotans and a part of the Michigan and Wisconsin delega tions sulked in their seats. They realized that it would be strange doctrine for them to go back home and preach to their con stituents. They knew that it was not what the f aimers of the Northwest wanted incorporated in the platform. Still they didn't have the courage to stand by their convictions or to enter a protest against the hostile attitute the national party was about to take in opposition to the agricultural in terests of the great Northwest. A few minutes afterwards, when it was pro posed to adopt the platform by a rising vote, the sulkers stood up with the rest, and formally expressed adherence to a doctrine which they know to be destructive of all Northwestern industries. It was a humilitating spectacle to see Minne sota's fourteen delegates, so blinded by partisan zeal, as to forget that the farmers and workingmen had an inter est at stake. It was a gross betrayal of ' a public trust, and a political "crime which will cost the Republican party dearly in the coming election. G. H. M. WELL. RECEIVED. The Oratory of F. F. Davis . Roundly Applauded. Special to the Globe. CnicAGO, June 21.— The Northwest carried off a fair share of the oratorical honors in to-day's session. Frank Davis won his spurs in most gallant style, and while his speech seconding Gresham's nomination had a good deal of the sophomoric tinge, still it pro duced an electrical, effect, and was well received by the convention, Davis made the only speech of the morn ing session worth listening to. It was a fortunate circumstance for him that he was preceded by Leonard Swett, in the tamest nominating speech that was ever inflicted upon a convention, and was followed by others as dry and barren as the sands of Labrador, so that Davis' florid rhetoric and beautifully rounded sentences lell as refreshingly upon the convention as the sight of an oasis in :- the ' midst of a desert. The speech was heartily applauded by : the vast audience and at its conclusion he was warmly congratulated by his fellow delegates and friends. A candidate's name never went before the convention in a worse mangled shape than Gresham's, and : if it ; had not been for Mr. Davis' ■£ brilliant _' effort Gresham's candidacy V> would have died a bornin'. . Col. Hepburn's ; speech nom inating Allison was the most judicious and thoughtful of - the day. Like most of the other nominating speeches it was too long, and the audience grew weary before he got his candidate's name be fore the convention. Senator Spooner's effort was a dismal failure. The speech DEMOCRATS ■ LIKE - -- : .'lii ~~ "THE GLOBE" BECAUSE IT IS SPICY ; IN POLITICS and NEWS NO. 174. itself was good enough and will read well, but it was spoilt in the delivery. He pitched his voice on too high a key ; at the start, and before he had spoken five minutes was so hoarse he couldn't make himself heard teri feet from the stage. . It was . his double misfortune, too, ,to take' the stand at a late hour when the audience was worn out with the long day's se*» sion, and to follow Foraker's brilliant presentation of Sherman's name,- which-? by the way, was one of the most dramatic affairs in the history of political oratory. After the" exciting scenes that followed Foraker's prearranged and cleverly managed in troduction of the flag "episode, it would! have taken a remarkably majestic speaker with an inspiring subject to' have worked anything like enthusiasm' in the convention. In Spooner's voice-' less condition, and with so uninspiring a subject as Uncle Jerry Rusk, it is no wonder that the Rusk boom was' smothered in the orator's thorax. Dele* gate Hartley, of Minnesota, gave a sec* ond to Depew's nomination. The point' of his speech was in its levity! and ,won golden opinions because it was so short. Beyond a promt ise of 15,000 Republican majority in Minnesota, in case Depew should be nominated, he had nothing to say/ Foraker's attempt to ridicule Davis* fervent eloquence is resented by the whole Minnesota Delegation. •In fact,' Foraker seemed to have made a splen* did effort to burn all of Sherman's bridges behind him, and succeeded by making dirty flings at every other can didate.

Blame continues the probiem, and' the uncertainty of its solution is only intensified by the conduct of the California delegation to-day. To a careful observer it is apparent that the forces of Blame, Depew and Harrison manage to keep in sight of each other*,' and it is fairly evident that they have established a secret signal ser vice by which they are enabled to understand each other's movements,' Steve Elkins is the mutual friend of the' three forces,' and is known to be in con> stant communication with their re spective camps. The Gresham men in the Minnesota delegation are despond*' ent. They realize" that whatever chances Gresham may have had before were sacrificed to-day in the bungling] attempt made to bring his name before*] the convention. They will probably cast! ten votes for him on the first ballbtd with indications that there wilD be a break soon afterwards.

M. 4 j STEENERSON RED-HEADED , ; Over Hartley's Claim That Depew Would Carry the Fifth Mimic* sota. Special to the Globe. -, i : " Chicago, June 21.— Senator Steener son always had hair of the white-horse variety, but he is more red-headed to- 1 night than usual. It is because of Hartley's statement to-day that the Fifth district, the larg est wheat-growing district in the 1 United States, was practically solid fort 1 'Depew. '■■ Senator Steenerson not only denies the statement in most emphatic language, but says that if it had been known that Hartley was a Depew man, he would never have held" a seat in the • convention. He ,says in most unqualified terms that if Depew is nominated the Democrats will sweep the Fifth. district. Delegate Lewis backs him in the statement. Delegate Edgerton, of the First district, will stick to Gresham as long as he is before the convention, but feels that it is a useless fight. He is sure that Blame will be nominated. I have it from good authority that it is a ' plan of the Sherman managers to hold back a portion of his vote on the first ballot and ; bring it in after- ' wards in order to create the impression on the convention that Sherman is a growing candidate. Col. Quay says, that while the Pennsylvania delegation will stand by Sherman at the outset, the Blame feeling is so strong among them he is sure they can not be held back if Blame's name ia precipitated upon the convention. ■ G.
