Strong Arguments on National Is-
sues in the Senator-Chair-
man's Opening Address.
State Auditor...... JAMES W. KNOTT
State Treasurer WM. B. SHOLER
Supreme Judge WM. T. MOONEY
Member Board Public Works—
Clerk of Supreme Court—
SPRINGFIELD, 0., Aug. 21.—
Democratic state convention here to-
day made all its nominations with-
out opposition. The convention was
in session from 10:20 to 2:40, and the
; nominations were completed a half
': hour after ex-Gov. Campbell had
been drafted for the standard-bearer.
The ballots were all on the minority
report, "on credentials and resolu
tions, and the time was thus con-
sumed in the contests between the
gold and the silver men. The gold
men, headed by Senator Brice, had
claimed that there would be less
than 300, and probably not many
more than 200, of the 808 delegates
vote for free silver. The silver men
claimed they would have no less j
than 300, and probably 350 delegates,
for free silver. It developed that
there were 270 free silver delegates.
It was a fighting minority, but it
did not carry the fight further than !
on the platform. The nominee for |
member of the board of public works ;
is said to be the only free silver I
man on the ticket, although the sil- j
ver lines were not drawn on the |
candidate. There was considerable :
enthusiasm over the nomination of j
Campbell. He defeated ex-Gov. For- I
aker in 1889, and was defeated for |
re-election as governor in 1891 by I
William McKinley Jr., the present
incumbent. The nomination of Mr. i
Campbell means an aggressive cam
paign in Ohio, where McKinley is i
now recognized as a candidate for !
president, and Foraker for senator,
the fate of both depending largely ;
on the pending contest between
Campbell and Bushnell for governor. |
It is generally understood that Gov. i
Campbell was induced to make the
race by promises of support for the :
presidential nomination in the event
of his success next November, in i
which contingency he would again
confront his old opponent, McKinley, :
should the latter be nominated. And j
in co-operating with Senator Brice I
for a Democratic legislature, ex-Gov. '.
Campbell is also again confronting j
his other old opponent, Foraker. <
Although Senator Brice is also
known to have presidential aspira
tions, it is the generally accepted
theory that Brice and Campbell have
reached such an understanding as
to contest everything in Ohio with
McKinley and Foraker, who have
everything at stake on the selection
of Gen. Asa A. Bushnell as governor,
and a Republican legislature next
November. It is thought the con
test between these old leaders in
Ohio will overshadow the currency
question and other issues. , There is
so little difference between the Re-"
publican and Democratic '* platforms
on silver that the currency question
is now generally believed to be dis
posed of in Ohio, but the tariff will
be kept prominent, as the parties dif
fer widely on that -issue, and Gov.
Campbell is expected to arraign the
Republican state administration of
the past four years very severely, as
he did "in the previous campaigns.
Gov. Cambpell called* in his" friends
tonight before leaving/arid with Sen
ator Brice and others arranged for
beginning at once an aggressive" cam
paign, in which they expect the co
operation of leading " Democrats
throughout the country. Previous to
his election as governor in 1889 Gov.
Campbell had been three times elect
ed to congress in a Republican dis
trict, and is recognized as the best
campaigner of his party in Ohio.
His running mate for lieutenant gov
ernor, John B. Peaslee, was for
years superintendent of the Cin
cinnati schools, and last week re
tired as clerk of the courts of Ham
ilton county. Mr. Peaslee is also a
fine campaign speaker. Prof. Knott,
the candidate for auditor of the state,
is a college man, and the nominee
for supreme judge is now on the
common pleas bench. Mr. Fairbanks,
for attorney general, is a friend of
Thurman at Columbus. His name
was presented by Congressman
Several personal encounters were
features of the meetings during last
night, and the feeling was no better
when the delegates assembled this
morning. The Brice men had every
thing, and their only consideration
was that of avoiding further trouble.
When Senator Brice entered the hall
on time he was accorded an ovation.
Gov. Campbell afterward was re
ceded wjfh rounds of applause. The
hall was elaborately decorated, but
was too small to accommodate all
holding tickets. It was 10:30 when
the chairman of the state commit
tee, M. A. Smalley, called the conven
tion to order. Prayer was offered
by Professor Breckinridge, after
which Senator Brice was introduced
as the presiding officer and spoke as
"Gentlemen of the Convention: I
recognize the honor and responsibility
of the position which has been as
signed me, and shall endeavor to fill
it to the best of my ability, with per-
feet impartiality and due regard for
the right of each and every* delegate.
I can only succeed with your forbear-
ance and assistance, upon which I
shall rely, knowing that we have all
come for the same general purpose —
the success of the Democratic party in
the state. We may, as we often have
in the past, differ as to details and
have warm controversies as to the
manner in which we may best accom-
plish our common purpose; but the
Ohio Democracy must fight with un-
broken ranks and against the common
enemy. We must recognize the grav
ity of the situation. It is now less than
a year since we were beaten in this
state by nearly 140.000 majority. Nor
was this a local disaster, affecting only
the party In the*state. We suffered
from the Atlantic to the Pacific and
from the lakes to the gulf. We were
beaten in our strongholds as well as
in doubtful places, and it is idle to
talk of its being the fault of any one
man or any; single act of the party, or
any of the minor causes that affect
political success. The shadow of the
great, world-wide panic; the indus-
trial and* financial depression; low
prices for all products; low wages, or
no wages, for workingmen every-
where; despair for farmer and me-
chanic, terror and ruin for banker and
merchant; and at the bottom of it
all a false tariff system, ruining in
turn manufacturer and consumer, and
an unwise and fatally weak currency
situation, had .thrown. over the whole
nation resentment against the party
which happened to be in power when
the disaster came. Millions of Dem
ocrats remained at home— hundreds of
thousands in our own state a mute
protest againts * the powerlessness of
their president and their congress to
prevent or protect them from these
disasters. Men from all parties and
everywhere were freely saying that
the Democratic party was dead, dis-
solved, gone off into the camps of the
Populists and socialists, and had be-
come mere wandering bands of fugi*
fives, without union and without hope.
There was wild, fierce clamor against
the senate and against the Democratic
house. So widespread was the feeling
of hopelessness among our party, that
we have already lost our majority in
the senate, not to be regained in many
years. Our majority of more than 100
in the house of representatives has
been reversed, and our membership in
that branch of the present congress
is a mere handful. ■
"Is this the time for those who re-
main steadfast and loyal to the great.
party of Jefferson, . Jackson, Tilden
and Cleveland to indulge in quarrels
and recriminations? Should we not
rather gather together all people who
are willing to join hands, and build the
Democratic structure, on which, as we
believe, lies happiness and safety for
this government and its people? But.
gentlemen, doesn't this convenxion.and
the intense feeling* manifested by those
who attend it, and those who have
sent their delegates here, tell the story
that a change has come over the pub-
lie mind— that the Democratic party is
no longer prostrate: that its fortunes
are rising, and that it is quite worth
the while to be in the Democratic army,
"which already has the assured and con-
fident step of a march toward victory?
Panic and fear have passed away.
The beneficence of Democratic legisla
tion has already produced, and is pro-
ducing, its effect. Faith is rapidly
being restored, confidence re-estab
lished and business everywhere reviv-
ing, and it is now clear that it is only
a question of time, either in November
of this year or of next year, when the
American people will reward the Dem
ocratic party for its profound service
to the republic. The three great
promises made to the American people
in 1892 have been more nearly fulfilled,
and carried more nearly into execution,
than any three promises ever made by
any party in any platform. What were
they? They were summed up by Sam-
uel J. Tilden forty years ago, as home
rule, sound money and free trade, as
nearly as government requirements
permit; and under the very shadow of
the disaster brought on this country
by the Republican laws, against which
we protested and whose repeal we de
manded—the force bill, the McKinley
bill and the Sherman bill— these prom
ises were fulfilled. The Democratic
party met and wiped from the statute
book the force bill, and gave home rule
to this country as far as your national
legislature had anything to do with the
question: and next repealed, uncondi
tionally, the Sherman silver law, and
thereby prevented the absolute bank
ruptcy of the United States treasury
which was imminent. There is no
human being, whose judgment is en-
titled to the slightest weight, who does
not know that the gravity of the situ-
ation and the imminence of the peril
were averted by the repeal of The Sher
man law.
And the third, and in the Democratic'
heart the most desired, . the repeal of
the McKinley bill, was secured against
greatest obstacles and the fiercest and
bitterest opposition, and ta> its place
was passed a Democratic tariff bill
which will long stand as the law of the
land. I sneak with some fullness of
feeling and knowledge of this partic
ular bill, because I took great interest
in it during its consideration by the
senate. Many of -my . Democratic
friends in Ohio were seriously dis
turbed, some of them quite indignant,
at my course ta the framing of that
bill. Gentlemen of the convention,
when sent by you and your associates
to repeal the McKinley bill, we did
not propose to return to you with the
McKinley bill unrepealed, if it- lay
within our power, and- we did not. We
had also been sent by you to support
the government of the United States,
and to secure the best prosperity- and
happiness of the people of this coun.
try. This we- could not do if we aboh
tailed all taxes and . large I appropria
tions, resulting in the bankruptcy" of
the United State! treasury, and con
sequent uncertainty and ruin of all
your business, financial andTlhdustrial
; machinery. We could • therefore not
consent to the passage of a bill which
did not -provide, sufficient revenue.

Peremptory Demand for the Pris-
Peremptory Demand for the Pris-
oner's Release Likely *n Be
Made at Once,
WASHINGTON, Aug. 21.— With
reference to the criticisms which
have been made from time to time
concerning the state department's
conduct of the Waller case, it can
be stated that Mr. Waller's friends
here are satisfied the case is receiv
ing the most careful and zealous
attention of the department. It is
learned on the best authority that,
notwithstanding Secretary 01ney's(
absence from the city, he has given
personal attention to the conduct of
the negotiations looking to Mr. Wal
ler's release and restoration to his
rights. Furthermore, the president*
himself has manifested a concern re
garding the matter which he would
not give if he did not feel that the
case was unusual in complications '
involved. Enough is known regard
ing the progress of the negotiations
to justify the statement that the de
partment is confident it will result
in the release of Mr. Waller, with
indemnity for his imprisonment and
the restoration of his property rights. _
There is also authority for the state-!
ment that the department feels as-'
sured that Mr. Waller's bare release j
could not have been secured before'
now, but it was felt that this would I
be accomplished at the risk of losing *
indemnity for imprisonment, and'
protection of Mr. Waller in his prop--,
erty rights in Madagascar. As the'
money interests involved are placed
by' no one in the department at less I
than a million dollars, the case has
been handled on the theory that ii
was better that Mr. Waller should.
continue to endure his incarceration"
for a few months than risk losing his
claim. Ambassador Eustis has found
it impracticable to secure more of
the record in France than the specifi
cation of the charges, but it is un
derstood a promise has been made to'
secure the full record from Madagas
car. 5 This will take some time, . but'
the state department is so confident
that when received it will bear out
the full , representations of : the de
partment, and aid materially in se
curing justice to Mr. . Waller, that it
is deemed wise to wait for it rather
than to unduly press the matter."
There is good authority for the state
ment that a peremptory demand will
be made by the United States on
France for the release of ex-Consul
Waller, with a probable request for a
commission to determine Waller's
rights in Madagascar. The discussion
of the case between the French and
American diplomats has reached a
point where it is said there is little
else for the United States to do, owing
to the fact that repeated requests for.
a copy of the charges and testimony*
upon which Waller was convicted
have not been furnished by the French
government. It was said at the suit*
department today that the delay in
the case had been very annoying to the
officials, and especially to Ambassa
dor Eustis. The dilatory action of?
France in this matter is regarded "as
indicating that the French govern
ment has a very poor case, and will be
unable to resist the demands made by
the United States for the restoration
of Waller to liberty and indemnity for
his losses. A condition which makes
the delay of France more aggavating
is the fact that the department is*
aware of the serious illness of Waller
in prison and that his further con
finement is harmful to his health. In
ternational questions generally move
slowly, but the delay in producing pa-.
pers and testimony in the case ; of
Waller has been of a very exasper
ating kind, and has resulted in sharp
pressure by United States officials -to
bring about a settlement, the belief
being that a great deal of the delay
has been largely unnecessary. Some
of the reports which have been re
ceived at the department indicate that
the treatment of Waller has been? un
just, and his arrest and trial a breach
of international comity. ej

Board of Equalization Fixes Val
ues of North Dakota Railways.
Special to the Globe.
BISMARCK, N. D., Aug. 21.—
state board of equalization finished its
work and -adjourned today. The mat
ter of greatest interest in connection
with their meeting was the valuation
of railroad property under the new di-
rect tax law. Heretofore the North
ern Pacific has been the only road in
the state to pay tax on an assessed
valuation per mile, the other road
paying on a gross earnings system.
But the "gross earning law was re- i
pealed by the last legislature, and as
a consequence the property of the
roads has had to be fixed in value per
mile by the board. For the past few
days a number of representatives of
the roads have been before the board,
including G. S. Fernald, of the North
ern Pacific; D. W. Cassidy, of the Soo;
F. P. Cradon, of the Chicago & North-
western; R. A. Wilkinson, of the Great
Northern, and T. S. McDonald, of the
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul. All
these representatives have addressed
the board, setting forth the unprofit
able business of many of their lines In
the state and asking for a valuation
to be placed in accord with these facts, I
as set forth. The board today fixed
value of $2,500 per mile on Northern
Pacific main line and $2,700 on
branches. This is tne same as last
year on the main line, but a reduction
of $900 per mile on branches. The
Great Northern -was fixed at $3,250 on
main line and $2,700 on branches per!
mile. '. The Soo was assessed at $2,500.
per mile. The Milwaukee at $2,000 and
the Northwestern at $1,500. The valu
ation is considered equitable.

And by a Vote of Thirteen t(f
Twelve Has His Commit-
tee to Wait on Governor.
The meeting of Battery A last
night a/t the armory was a rather hot
affair. It finally broke up in a dis
agreement of the members, and the
old-time battery was split in twain
and all chances of a peaceful ad
justment are practically at an end*
If St. Paul has a battery in the fu
ture, it -will be a new organization.
There were but twenty-five of tha
sixty members present, and the
small majority of one vote succeeded!
in doing that which plainly puts the
organization outside the pale of rec
ognition cf the military authorities
of the state of Minnesota.
In vain did the cooler heads of the
battery try to stem the tide and
counsel moderation and caution. The
meeting wound up as an affair de
voted to the cause of captain-elect
Kelly, who came prepared for the
emergency. It was no longer a ques
tion of seeing the battery- reinstated
upon its own merits, but the support
ers of Kelly went so far as to de
mand recognition for their man from
the adjutant general, which seems
to be a bone of contention.
When the meeting convened tha
committee appointed at a previous
meeting to wait upon the governor,
of which Sergeant Wallace was
chairman, made its report. Mr. Wal
lace stated that the committee had
seen the governor and had presented
the petition of the battery to him,
but that the governor had desired
them to see the adjutant general on
the matter. The committee had
done so, and Gen. Mu^hlberg had
informed him that the battery could
be reinstated if it would select three
good men as officers, who should be
acceptable to all, that Kelly should
forego his rights to a commission
and that Lieut. Allen should resign.
Sergeant Rooch said that the adju
tant general - had written out his
propositions under which ' the" battery
might be "reinstated, ? ahd " afnong
these was the demand that the ofli
eers all tender their resignations.
This was as follows: "The battery
must be reorganized under a newl
regime, that is, it must reorganize
under an entirely new set of officers.
The late officers as well as Sergeant
Kelly musil step aside and out. Se
lect for your officers men of charac
ter, fitness and respectability, hand
their names to Major Libbey, who
will forward them through the reg
ular military channels, and if satis
factory to all, then there will be no
difficulty in reinstating the battery."
Then came a desultory discussion
of the subpject. Mr. Wallace sug
gested thart the battery proceed ta
elect three new officers. This would
be the only thing for it to do.
Kelly replied that so far he had not
signed any document as demanded
by the adjutant general and ha
wished to know what disposition;
was to be made of him. Corporal
Bisbie held that the battery at pres
ent was not a military organizations
and that there was no need for any,
one to sign any resignations. Kelly,
however, stood pat and refused tot
comply with any such summary dis
missal from even the rank and file
of the service. He had prepared a
set of resolutions and an address to
the governor, which he desired to
read, and permission being granted,
he read the following:
To His Excellency, David M. Clough.
Governor of the State of Minnesota:
Battery A. First battalion artillery,
N. G. S. M., stationed at St. PauL
has been in the honorable service os
this state for about fifteen years and
has always borne excellent character
That these conditions still exist is
conclusively shown by the files of the
adjutant general's oflice of the state of
Minnesota After the. annual inspec
tion of 1595, made by Lieut. A B.
Johnson, U. S. A., appointed to such
duty hy the honorable the secretary
of /war, Lieut. Johnson certified to tha
adjutant general of the state that ha
found the condition of battery A "very,
good" in matters of drill, discipline,
efficiency of its officers, condition ofi
uniforms and equipments, records re-
ports and files, attendance at drills,
and in all respects said report was es
pecially complimentary to the non-
commissioned officers and privates in
said command.
Thereafter Capt. W. J. Murphy re*»
signed the service, and the command
devolved upon Lieut. Allen. Underi
his command the battery reported fori
duty, and did service in all respects!
satisfactory (as will appear from tha
official reports now in the adjutant!
general's office) at the encampment!
held at Camp Lakevlew in July last
While In camp, and pursuant to or-
ders, and in . conformity to section"
1719, laws of this state, the battery:
held an election to fill the vacancy oc
casioned by Capt. Murphy's resigna
tion. At this election, in all respecta
properly conducted. ... First Sergeant
Kelly was ' elected captain. Sergeant
Kelly thereafter reported before' tha
examining board appointed by law.
and was examined, and passed as qual
ified to be captain of the battery. Hia
commission was duly recommended by,
all his superior, officers having legal
cognizance of such matters. All thesa
matters were duly, and, according to
■ military rules and practices, reported)
to the adjutant general of -* the state*
Under the facts and the law the cap-
tain-elect . was entitled to be commis
sioned," and the battery entitled to the
officer it had chosen: but the adjutant
general, without* any legal or just ex-
cuse; without any charge having
been preferred against the captain-
elect,, or, if any has been preferred,
without daring, to bring him to trial
thereon, arbitrarily - re-fused to Issue
said commission, but did issue, upon
his own motion, his now famous Spe
cial Order No. C, assuming to muster
out of the state service all the enlisted
men of the battery. * Your excellence
has doubtless read it; if not, it can!
be easily obtained.
It requires no argument to show that
this order is absolutely without war- .
rant of. law, entirely unjust to sixty,
faithful soldiers of the state, prejudi
cial |to the integrity of the National
Guard and subversive of all discipline.
