A. Party Split Engendered by the Defeat of Capt. Reed. A Platform Inconsistent and Without Wit or Common Sense. Harmony Took Wings and Went Off to Roost in Shame. Special to the Globe. Red Wing, June 28.— "If no candi date can be agreed upon, what's the matter with Donnelly?" asked Gen. Jennison this morning. "Would he accept?" piped a country delegate, at the bare idea of which everybody roared. "If I were a delegate to the conven tion," continued Jennison, "1 would vote first for Shakespeare, then for Ba con and finally Donnelly." Had Donnelly been here to-day instead hob-nobbing with penny-a-line critics in London he might have grasped the situation and cut the gordian knot by becoming the choice of a disgruntled and broken party. But save in scoff or joke his name was not mentioned. It was the shadow of Maj. Strait that haunted everything, and before which delegation after delegation bowed and acknowled obedience. Strait has not a personality that commands homage, nor a public record of great achieve ments to excite admiration. He is ai> every-day business man, who has made a science of wire-pulling. Therein lies his strength. And the presence of his able abettor, William F. Biekel, made him all the more potent a factor here to-day. The other candidates had personal followings, in most cases cre ated by jealousy of Strait, but they hung together badly, and in whatever they did there was a bungling action in dicative not alone of hatred, but of fear of the man from Shakopee. Warren Ives, of McLeod, was. the bitterest talker against Strait, and would not have him under any circumstances. THE GOODHUE DELEGATION remained split on the Strait rock, and after another caucus this morning, failed to agree. The caucusing this morning did not chauge the situation materially from what it was last night. Maj. Strait had a room at the St. James, and thero various delegations waited on him. The Begum of Booligibackdown could not have been treated with more respect. As a confession of their own weakness, the Reed men at noon sent a delegation composed of one from each of their solid counties to see him. The satisfaction they got was meager. The time-worn chestnut that he was not a candidate, and felt favorable to Reed, was light stuff for them. Mart Chandler went up to see the major, but without particular success. The boom for S. Hall, of Renville, became quite active as soon as Marcus Johnson stated that Hall had at las*; said that if he got the nomination he would not decline it. Hall was not here in person, but Johnson nurtured his in terests and Chandler apparently thought them good. Before the temporary "or ganization was made it was DEFINITELY SETTLED that if Strait could not win or deemed it advisable to withdraw he would give his strength to Hall. Mr. Biekel said: "The major doesn't want the nomina tion unless it conies to him unanimously. He cannot afford to take it after a fight that might endanger party success." "My prediction that Gen. Chandler was for Strait, was wrong in this sense that the general turned up to-day anti- Strait and with the claim that he never was for him, and would support Reed. The general should be given the benefit of the doubt. To say that the conven was a milk and water affair, is putting it mild. It is the flattest of its kind that I have ever attended in this state. Gen. Chandler, who has just been through the wild scenes of Chicago, looked with mild reproach at the dele gates when they freely applauded the mention of Harrison. There is no stir to the thing. To adjourn twice within three hours indicates just how fast the blood is flowing. "Ho," yawned a delegate, "Who is Harrison?" "The next president," replied the in terrogated. Just then roared out an Irishman who over heard the two: "How about the Chinay ?" It is a dull, tame and very dreamy af fair * FIRST WORK. The Usual Perfunctory Proceed ings to Start With. Special to the Globe. Red Wing, June Tarns Bixby for T. K. Simmons, chairman of the district congressional committee, called the convention to order. J. A. Law rence of Rice, and J. W. Peterson, of Goodhue, were nominated for chairman. Mr. Peterson withdrew and Mr. Lawrence was nominated by acclamation. C. A. Birch of Kandiyohi, was chosen as secretary. A committee of live on credentials was chosen as fol lows: M. Johnson, Kandiyohi; G. M. Nelson, McLeod; E.N. Leavens, Rice; P.. Sohgren, Meeker; P. A. Peterson, Goodhue. The committee on perma nent organization was: M. S. Chand ler, Goodhue; J. B. Hyde, Rice; A. Railson, Kandiyohi; D. H. Harris, Meeker; J. C. Mullen, Chippewa. The appointment of these committees was not reached without a parliament ary row as to how they should be chosen. . In tiie jumble the chairman and secretary got lost and were with difficulty rescued by Gen. Chandler and other friends who come to their aid. Then, too, although the sun was shining gloriously outside, the opening of the convention was dismal. The Casino is roomy and sixty-three delegates, with a dozen spectators looked lost in it. The chairman made no opening speech, and altogether enthusiasm was at an ebb. It is wonderful what a paralyzing effect the presence of a first-class political machine can have upon a convention. While the temporary organization was being per fected. Delegate Fieg, of Kandiyohi county, who lias a voice like the steam whistle on a Benton county saw mill, made frantic efforts to prevent his own appointment to either the committee on credentials or organization, desiring evi dently to go on the committee for plat form, where he might declaim for tariff reform. The chair, though, did not recognize his plaint and he remained where he had been placed. The con vention adjourned at 1 o'clock until 2:30 p. m. At that time the permanent organization was effected. FIRED LAWRENCE. The Real Work Begun and Changes Made. Special to the GloDe. Red Wing, June 28.— Temporary Chairman J. A. Lawrence had not given satisfaction in the morning, and it was decided to drop him with a dull, sicken ing thud. Gen. Chandler reported for the committee on permanent organiza tion that J. W. Peterson, of Goodhue county, be made permanent chairman, and C. A. Birch secretary. As Mr. Peter son took his seat he made a reference to Ben Harrison that provoked applause. The committee appointed on platform was: Henry Frey; Kandiyohi; F. M. Wilson, Goodhue: E. G. Smith, Carver; John Saxburg, Chippewa; J. M. D. Croft, Dakota; R. II. McClelland, Mc- Leod; D. II. Harris. Meeker; G. T. Christenson, Renville; W. H. Baier, Scott; S. II. Hudson, Swift. J. M. D. Craft was made chairman of the committee. A recess until 3:15 was taken to permit the committee to pre pare the platform. The committee staid out a long while. They had trouble. The rock of tariff reform stuck in front of them by a united Democracy caused dissension among them. The members of the committee had varying opinions an p the result of this was the produc tion of. minority and majority reports, and in the end a platform, so incon gruous, so confusing, so meaningless, that he who understands tariff reform and is honestly pledged to it will laugh. It is a platform that performs the re markable and unheard-of feat of indors ing not only the Chicago high tariff platform, but also the low tax platform of the DEMOCRACY. Can you conceive anything more rid iculous than this. Can you imagine a Republican convention made up in the majority of professional wire-pullers and ex-office-holders endorsing a plat form that supports high taxes and at the same time demands pure Demo cratic doctrine— "tax reduction to the requirements of the government." If by any unexpected chance a Republican should go to congress this year from the Third district lie would be divided against himself— political Siamese twin one hand upraised for low taxes and the other on the pocketbook of high tax. The majority of the committee reported the platform as follows: Resolved, That we indorse the nomina tions of the late Republican convention for president and vice president and pledge to the ticket our hearty support. Resolved, That we indorse with hearty ap proval the platform of the late Republican national convention. Resolved, That while supporting the doc trine of protection to American industries, American labor, American homes, American fisheries aud American honor, we demand a reduction of taxation to the requirements of the government and a revision of the tariff by such reduction or repeal of duties as will relieve from unnecessary, burden the neces saries of life and those articles other than luxuries of life which do not enter into com petition with the products of American labor. The minority report, signed by J. A. Law rence and E. T. smith, demanded that this sentence in the platform he stricken out: "We demanded a reduction of taxation to the requirements of the government" On being put to a vote the majority report was adopted and the Chicago platform cheered. Chairman Craft, of the platform committee, said that he could stand on the Chicago platform "Until Gabrial blew his horn." The ridiculous document, lacking in cour age, devoid of sense, a mess of words, went through with a rush. Frank Wilson moved that the nominee of the convention must have a majority of the votes present in the convention before being elected. Carried. The following nomina tions for congressmen were then made: A. H. Reed, of McLeod. H. B. strait of Scott. D. S. Hall, of Renville. The nominating speeches were of the usual order with the exception of that from Carver by E. T. Smith, who in seconding the nomi nation of Reed accused Judge MacDonald of having used his former position as judge to electioneer and make political friends. Mr. Smith frankly admitted that the Ames and MacDonald ticket in Carver county ran LIKE A CYCLONE, and it was wholly impossible to check it. Another speaker in making reference to the necessity of having the offices filled with Re publicans was wildly cheered by sixty-three hungry eyed Republicans. The chair appointed as tellers Messrs. Bixby, Christenson and Johnson. The first informal ballot was called at Just 4:45. When the Goodhue fcllo.vs marched up with their fourteen votes they were cheered, for it •was felt that that delegation could decide who the nominee should be when the proper time came. The ballot resulted as follows: A. H. Reed 28|Jorgen Simmons... 6 II. B. Siraiet 17 C. II. Strobeck 1 D. S. Hall Ill Joel Hcatwole 0 This was the informal ballot. As published in to-day's Globe, Reed got his twenty-seven votes polled Wednes day night and one better. The six votes for Jorgen Simmons, of Appleton, came partly from Goodhue, at least, as before the ballot some of the Goodhue delegates had been advocating his nom ination, notably Frank Wilson. The first formal ballot resulted: Reed _)|IIall 14 Strait 18|Strobeck 2 There was a cheer for Reed _ gain of one vote, but it subsided when Frank Wilson, of Goodhue, rose and moved that a recess be taken until 7 o'clock. On an yea and nay vote the chairman declared this lost, but a demand was made for a vote by counties. On this being taken, the motion was carried, and the ad journment taken. The vote on this showed the full opposition to Capt Reed. It was as follows: Counties— Yea. Xav. Carver .' "_ Chiypewa ;. 3 Dakota 0 Goodhue 14 ... Kandiyohi 7 McLeod 4 Meeker 3 3 Renville 5 Rice 9 .. Scott 2 ... Swift 4 ... Thirty-two for adjournment and thirty-one against. The delegates filed out to supper with the cry flying from lip to lip: "This defeats Capt. Reed." Goodhue had done it, not wholly in the ■ interests of Strait either, but to give time to find a new man less objection ; able than either Strait or Reed. , Capt. Reed met some of his delegates as ■ they left the hall. To one he said: "Why in the did you let them . adjourn?'' -. ... , "Because they had the most votes," retorted the delegate. . > "But can't you see that they are com ■ ing ! THE SAME TRICKS I on you that they did two years ago?" re ; joined the captain. Ills protestations ' were without avail. The adjournment • cost him the nomination. Had the con i vention remained In session and bal ; loted once or twice more, he might have '■ won. i Maj. Strait dining the recess an nounced himself out of the fight. The word was passed around. The Globe said Thursday morning, "the nominee will be Strait or Hall, and Strait will dictate the nomination." Maj. Street did. He was the real victor of the convention. Goodue agreed to support Hall, although it is reasonably certain that only twelve of the fourteen, votes went to him. Immediately after supper the roll for the third formal bal lot was called. It resulted as follows: Hall. 34; Reed, 27; Strobeck, 2. Chairman Peterson declared . D. S. Hall the nominee, and a motion to make it unanimous was carried, although there was a dozen dissenting votes. The convention then selected the fol lowing district committee. Rice county being left blank: Carver. Julius Ackermann: Chippewa, J. O. Hooland; Dakota, Wm. Hodgson; Good hue L. A. Hancock; Kandiyohi, C. A. Birch; McLeod, R. II. McClelland: Meeker, S. H. Brannan ; Renville, C. T. Christensen ; Rice, ; Scott, William Willson; Swift,' S. H. Hudson. The following committee to notify Mr. Hall of his nomination was appointed: F. M. Wilson, Goodhue; G. M. Nelson, McLeod; Andrew Railson, Kandiyohi. RED-EYED DISCORD. Plain Talk Against the Republi can Ring. Special to the Globe. Red Wing, June 28.— defeat of Capt. Reed caused at once a soreness and bitterness that stuck out on every side. The Globe stepped up to Capt. Reed and asked for his opinion of the result. He replied: "I am satisfied. I will take off my coat and work for the nominee." Then he hesitated a moment. Disappointed ambition and rage were struggling for the mastery of his discretion. "I was beaten because I would not wear the collar of a Republican boss," he said, "and there he stands," pointing to where Maj. Strait stood. Mr. Reibe, delegate from Renville county, said: "Mr. Hall is a nice gentleman, but cannot be elected. There is a ring in this district and it dictated his nomina tion. Such things won't do." C. P. Carpenter, of the Farmington Tribune I would rather not say any thing, but it is a weak nomination. Mr. Johnson, delegate from Dakota county — will bet $20 that Judge Mac donald is elected." Until train time delegates stood in front of the St. James, cursing Strait, denouncing the nomination and prophe sying Republican defeat, while inside, the major was smiling and very happy over the result. The convention ended with discord and disunion visible on every side. The final vote, as near as it can be ascertained, was: j Hall. Reed. Strobeck Carver 3 Chippewa .. .. 3 Dakota ... .. 6 Goodhue • 1*2 .. 2 Kandiyohi.... .. 7 McLeod 4 • :. Meeker 2 3.. Renville ......... 4-1 ._ Rice 9 Scott 2 Swift 4 Total •■ 34 ~" 27 2 This ends the political fortunes of Capt. Reed in the district as far as con gress is concerned. Maj. Strait got out of it with flying colors, whether a rod is in pickle for him or not. Most of the delegates came to St. Paul last night. GOOD DEMOCRACY. How It Looks in Goodhue County. Special to the Globe. Red Wing,. June 29.— In striking contrast with the Republican bicker ings and jealousies at this convention has been the spirit of enthusiasm mani fested by the Goodhue county Demo crats. You must remember that while Goodhue gives a Republican majority of from 1,8 to 2,200 for gov ernor and congressman, she has a democratic state senator— Nel son, who succeeded a democratic sena tor, O. M. Hall— and she has also some of the best and richest young democratic blood in the state. Among these are Messrs. Hall, Michael, Rich, Pierce, Pratt, Fulton, Cook and Nelson. I talked quite fully with them yes terday, and their responses to my inquiries were of the most satisfactory nature. All they ask of the state leaders of the Democracy is to give them a strong and vigorous state ticket, headed by either Edmund Rice or Eugene Wilson, or, if he will take it, Knute Nelson. Then, with Judge Mac- Donald for congress again, they promise to make such a fight for the national ticket as Minnesota has never seen. The Cleveland-Thur man tickat is to their liking, and when the Republicans marched to the con vention hall this morning they passed under a great Cleveland-Thurman ban ner that flapped its folds triumphantly. The Democrats here are tariff reformers and not only think but talk it. Not a man among them but has read the message, waded into Adam Smith and studied Schoenhoff, while not a few find strong meat in Shearman and Wells. Donn Piatt's new monthly maga zine, with its economic leaders and deadly blows at high tax, is very popu lar. The feeling is prevalent that good tickets and hard work will carry Min nesota into the Democratic column this year. Red Wing is making a vigorous fight for the Democratic congressional convention, which will be called within a fortnight. Of course Judge MacDon ald will be his own successor, but Good hue wants the affair to be within her own bailwick. Senator Peter Nelson is slowly gaining stength and finding health again. The senate will probably hear his voice and feel his influence again next winter. WHO HALL IS. St. Paul Has a Good Claim on Him. Darius S. Hall was born in Wisconsin and is forty-two years old. He served in the war, came to Minnesota after it, and is now state senator from Ren ville county. He was in the Benson land office for ten years and has served in the house. He has a farm in Stewart, Renville county, but his heavy business interests are in St. Paul, where he owns a livery stable. He is a pleasant, genial man, with a good reputation, but no particular political strength. While he was at the convention, Senator Marcus Johnson cared for his interests. A de termined effort, emanating from Good hue, was. made to have Johnson nomi nated, biit he emphatically declined. ESCULAPIANS IN COUNCIL. The National Association of Rail way Surgeons Organized— A St. Paul Medic Honored. ' Chicago, June 28.— hundred members of the National' Association of Railway Surgeons assembled in conven tion here to-day, the object of the con vention being a permanent organization . of the association.

FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 29, 1888. READY AND WILLING! The Old Roman Is Formally Notified of His Nom- %| ination. Grateful for the Honor, He Signifies His Accept ance. He Declares for Tariff Re form and Against Accu mulating a Surplns. Ratification of the Ticket by the New York County Democracy. Columbus, Ohio, June 2S— The mem bers of the Democratic committee ap pointed to notify ex-Senator Allen G. Thurman of his nomination to the office of vice president, arrived in this city this morning in a special train, but it was afternoon before anything was done. The committee was appropri ately received by committees of local Democratic clubs and was grandly en tertained. It was a fine body of men, and all the regular committee were present except the representatives from Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Arizona and New Mexico. Accompanying the committee also were Gen. P. A. Collins, of Massachusetts, and Hon. S. M. White, of California. At 1 o'clock the com mittee started for Judge Thurman's residence, and it was announced that the meeting would be in that portion occupied by his son. The party was received in the north reception room of A. W. Thurman's residence, which had been bedecked . with flowers and plants. Gen. Collins and Mayor Jacobs, of Louisville, stationed themselves at the head of the room in front of the window, the other members of the com mittee and the various gentlemen pres ent having arranged themselves in a semi-circle, awaited the entrance of Judge Thurman, who speedily made his appearance from the drawing room on the south. Judge Thurman was greeted with a burst of applause as he came forward leaning on the arm of his son, A. W. Thurman. It was AN IMPRESSIVE SIGHT and one well calculated to accompany the scene about to be completed. As soon as Judge Thurman had taken his seat and bowed to the gentlemen stand ing ready to receive him. Gen. Collins advanced, and, after shaking him by the hand, spoke as follows: Sir: It has become the highly agree able duty of this committee to inform you thai, upon the first ballot of the na tional Democratic convention, held re cently in the city of -St. Louis, and rep resenting every state and territory of the Union, for the purpose of selecting candidates for the presidency and vice presidency, you were unanimously chosen as the NOMINEE OF TnAT GREAT PARTY for the eminent and responsible office of vice president of the United States. "Judge Thurman, we bear a message from the great council of our party. It is but a formal notice of your nomina tion by that body for the high office of vice president of the United Staees. Rich as our language is in power and expression, it contains no words to ade quately convey the sentiment of that convention as its heart went out to you. I present my friend, the Hon. Charles D. Jacobs, mayor of Louisville." Mr. Jacobs, who is a gentleman of exceedingly handsome appearance stepped forward, and in an earnest voice read the following formal letter of notification: To the Hon. Allan G. Thurman, of Ohio: In thus spontaneously and emphatic ally demanding a return to that polit ical arena which you graced with so much wisdom, dignity and vigor, the Democracy of this country have hon ored themselves by relieving their party from .the charge of ingratitude, and believe that in November next the people will efface such a taint from the republic by electing you to preside over the most august deliberative body in the world— the senate of the United States. [Applause.] Should so desirable a consummation be achieved, then, indeed, could every lover of his country, regardless of party or creed, rejoice that in you is embraced the high est type of the enlightened and refined American citizen, and that no matter what the crisis might be, this GOVERNMENT WOULD BE SAFE in your hands. [Applause.] An en grossed copy of the platform of princi ples, couched in language that admits ■ of no doubt and adopted without a dis senting vote, is herewith presented. In discharging their trust, this com- : mittee desires to convey to you assur- ! ances of the most profound esteem and' admiration and to express their sin ; cerest good wishes for your happiness; and prosperity. We -have the honor sir, to be your i obedient servants, Patrick Collins, chairman, Massachusetts; Basil D. Gor don, secretary, Virginia; Thomas S. Pettit, assistant secretary, Kentucky; John H.

Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of -the. Committee: I pray -you to accept my very sincere thanks for the kind and courteous manner in which you have communicated to me the official infor mation of my nomination by the St, Louis convention. You know without my saying : it thai .1 am profoundly grateful to the convention and , to the Democratic party .for the honor con ferred upon me. and the more so be cause it was wholly unsought and un "desired by me. Not that I undervalued a distinction which any man of our party, however eminent, might highly ; prize, but simply because I had CEASED TO BE AMBITIOUS of public life. But when I am told in so earnest and impressive a manner that I can still render service to the good cause to which I have ever been devoted— cause to which I am bound by the ties of affection, by the dictates . of judgment, by a sense of obligation for favors so often conferred upon me, and by a fervent -hope that the party may long continue to be able to sing the underscore that serve the republic, what can I under such circum stances do but yield my pri vate wishes to the demand of those whose opinions I am bound to re spect? [Applause.] Gentlemen, with an unfeigned diffidence in my ability to fulfill the expectations that led to my nomination, I yet feel it to be my duty to accept it and do all that it may be in my power to do to merit so marked a distinction. Gentlemen, the country is blessed by an able and honest adminis tration of the general government. [Applause.] We have a president who wisely, bravely, diligently and patriot ically discharges the duties of his high office. [Applause.] I fully believe that the best interests' of the country REQUIRE HIS RE-ELECTION, and the hope that I may be able to con tribute somewhat to bring about the re sult is one of my motives for accepting a place on our ticket, and 1 also feel it my duty to labor for a reduction of tax es and to put a stop to that accumula : tion of a surplus in the treasury that, in my judgment, is not only prejudicial to our financial welfare, but is, in a high i degree, dangerous to honest and con stitutional government. [Applause.] I suppose, gentlemen, that I need say no more to-day. In due time, and in ac cordance with established usage, I will transmit to your chairman a written ac cepta_.ee of my nomination with such observations upon public questions as may seem to me to be proper." [Ap plause]. A reception and collation then fol lowed. Every one remarked that Judge Thurman appeared so vigorous and earnest, and old friends say they have not seen him so '....'.. VIVACIOUS AND HAPPY for months. It was a grand sight to see the old Roman surrounded by his ad mirers, and nothing would satisfy the cbmmitiee but that a photographer should take a group picture of the gathering", which was done and the: committee then departed. Before going to Judge Thurman's a meeting of the committee was held at the-. Neil house, this proving a pleasant occasion, since cane presentations were in order. This meeting organized by electing Hon. W. D. English, of Cali fornia, as chairman, and M. V. Ream, of Ohio, as secretary. Mr. Dixon, of Wy oming territory, with an able speech presented Gen. Collins with a gold headed cane. Mr. Strange, of North Carolina, did the same to Hon. Stephen _».. White, of California, and-Mr. Bryan, of Tennessee, was commissioned to pre sent one to Hon. W. H. Barnum, of Connecticut, _ - " -DELIGHTED DEMOCRATS. '■ Tammany's Big Rival, the County Democracy, Ratines the Ticket. New York, June 28.— A mass meet ing was held to-night under the auspices of the County Democracy in the Acad emy of Music and Nillsou hall to ratify the nominations of Cleveland and Thur man for president and vice president. The rain that fell so persistently throughout the day and continued this evening seemed to have no effect in dampening the enthusiasm of the county Democrats. They turned out in force and when the hour of 8 o'clock arrived not only was every seat in the large auditorium occupied, but it was diffi cult to crowd into the building or to obtain standing room there. In the boxes and In the parquet were many fashionably-dressed ladies. On the stage were seated about 500 of the lead ing members of the county Democracy. In the first balcony was stationed the Sixty-ninth regiment band, which en livened the audience with . stirring patriotic airs. The interior of the academy . was profusely dec orated with American flags, shields, • golden eagles and colors of every nation. Most prominent among them were the colors of Ireland and Germany. Shortly after 8 o'clock the appearance of Speaker John G. Carlisle and Gov. David B. Hill on the platform, escorted by D. Willis James, ex-Mayor Edward Cooper, and Senator Michael C. Murphy, was the signal for an outbust of applause and • . .- • ' THE "WAVING OF BANDANAS. — Three cheers were called for Gov. Hill and given with enthusiasm. Sena tor Murphy called the meeting to order and introduced D. Willis James as the chairman of the evening. As Mr. James advanced to to the front of the platform a large banner draped with flags and hearing the portraits of Cleveland and Thurman was lowered from the flies and displayed in full view of the audience. It was greeted with cheers and applause. Mr. James, on behalf of thee audi ence, expressed thanks to the ladies whose presence graced the meeting, and returned his own thanks for the nonor paid himself. He reminded the audi ence that as American citizens the elec tion of a president and vice president that confronted them was a solemn duty and should be met with a full sense of its, responsibility. He prononnced the ticket nominated by the Democrats .} , AN IDEAL ONE, and predicted its triumphal election. The names of Cleveland and Thurman were greeted with prolonged applause. i At the conclusion of the reading of several letters of regret from gentle men who had been unable to be present, Coxporatioan Counsel Beekman read a series of resolutions warmly indorsing the nomination of Cleveland and Thur man, and pledging -to them the United support of the Democracy of New York. The resolutions were adopted unanimously. Speeches were made by Speaker Carlisle., who re-, viewed the fallacy of Republican claims, its relations to trusts, homesteads, naval and merchant marine, civil service re form and finances. As to the Mills bill, he said: "I think it is safe to say that . nine-tenths of the people who are daily denounc ing it in the public press and other ; wise as a free trade measure have never read it, and perhaps they would not un derstand it if they had." "■" The audience listened with interested attention to Speaker Carlisle, frequently applauding his sentences. At the con clusion of his speech a storm of applause . broke out. He was followed by Gov. Hill, who was warmly received with ap plause and cheers. Following the re marks of Gov. Hill, speeches were made by ex-Gov. Leon Abbett, of New Jersey; : District Attorney Fellows, and • Hon.
