John P. -Altgeld" is the nominee; of
the Democratic ; party for : governor \of
Illinois. -•■; He was unanimously placed
at the head of the ticket this after
< noon. He had ■no opponent and a
few moments before the honor was
thrust upon him declared that he did
not want it. .He said so at ; the con
clusion of one of the most impressive
speeches ever made before ~~ a Demo- .
cratic convention. He said that he was
physically unable Vto lead, the fight
and his financial affairs : were -in bad
shape and needed his attention. |No
sooner had he mentioned his desire to
retire from public life than there came
an impassioned shout of disapproval
not only from the delegates, but from
thousands of people who were crowded
in the hall.
It was a strange convention and will
not soon be forgotten. It was in ses
sion only a little over five . hours.
Nearly all | the candidates were . nomi
nated by acclamation. There was no
strife;; there were no acrimonious
speeches save those s directed against
the enemy. The convention, as had
been predicted, came out - strongly
for silver and so instructed its dele
gates ;at large to the national conven
. tion. The platform was almost dia
metrically opposite in all its parts to
that of the Republican party and the
l,0:~ . delegates voted unanimously for
its adoption.
When the convention was called to
order this morning A. H. Bell was
made temporary chairman to be suc
ceeded later by Chas. |K. Todd, the
permanent presiding officer. Todd on
taking the • chair was loudly applauded
for his reference uto Altgeld. While
waiting for the committee -on ':. plat
form to report there were a number
of speeches, including one by Altgeld
which set the crowd in an uproar.
|'. At frequent intervals ',-' during his
speech, the governor ■ was ' interrupted
by furious demonstrations of applause.
He spoke | with great earnestness,. arid
the six thousand people . listened with
closest attention. As he proceeded the
throng of people became more '■ and
more inspired by. his utterances, until
at times it seemed they would go mad :
in their effort: to demonstrate their
approval." : ..••■•:.-
After the speeches it was moved that
the convention \ proceed to ': name ; a
candidate . for > governor. The motion
prevailed ; and Judge Prentice, of Chi
cago, offered the name of Altgeld.
A motion was made that the nomina
tion be made by a rising vote, and every
delegate rose, while , the . audience' went
wild. ■';; ; . ■;- ■ *•' -■ ;■•: /;
g The committee on resolutions then
offered its report, as follows:
We favor ( the soundest and : safest
money known to . man, and 'as ■■- experi
ence has shown that this consists of
both gold and silver, with equal rights
of coinage and full legal tender power,
we demand the repeal of that Repub
lican and , plutocratic legislation, which
demonetized silver and reduced it to the
basis of token ■' money, destroying *, by
one-half " the stock of real money and
by ; doubling the I work to: be done by
gold, doubled its purchasing power, so
that the farmers and; producers had to
give twice as much work to get a dollar
as they formerly had, and found it hard
to meet I the debts, interest, taxes and

Rational Convention.
fixed charges, which were not lowered.
In this way the market for those things
which the mechanic and laborer made
was destroyed and the factories had to
shut down.
But by thus taking out of the com
mercial world one-balf of its blood, in
dustry and trade have been paralyzed
and idleness and misery have been
spread over the civilized world. With
the richest natural resources, with a
most industrious, frugal and enterpris
ing population, and with the most
abundant harvests our people are in
distress. Three per cent of our popula
tion own over one-half the wealth of
this republic, and almost the only men
who prosper are the bond sharks and
the men who fatten off the misery of
their country. These are conditions
under which Republican institutions
cannot long endure. We believe in the
greatness and patriotism of the Amer
ican people, in their energy, industry
and thrift, and that such a people, with
the unlimited resources of <>ur land are
strong enough to sustain a monetary
system without the aid of foreign gov
ernments. We believe that the benefit of
the independence which we gained a
hundred years ago—the war for which
was initiated upon a matter of tribute
—should not be lost by yielding vassal
age to a monetary system, preferred by
other governments.
To believe that the bimetallism which
has done the work of the world since
the dawn of civilization and which was
made the basis of monetary system by
Hamilton and Jefferson is absolutely
necessary at present to the prosperity
of mankind, that its re-establishment
will check the present business paral
ysis, will give to the country a safe and
honest currency of adequate volume,
will restore prices of agricultural com
modities, will encourage enterprise and
give our people steady and profitable
employment. Having learned through
bitter experience that Wall street has
controlled the financial legislation at
Washington, and knowing that every
effort will be made to defeat the will of
the people we deem It proper to be ex
plicit in our declarations.
Actuated by the foregoing principles
and desiring the prosperity of the peo
ple we demand the immediate restora
tion of the free and unlimited coinage
of both gold and silver as standard
mt>ney at the rate of 16 ounces of silver
to one ounce of gold of equal fineness
with full legal tender power to each
metal without waiting for or depending
on any other nation on earth; and the
delegates from this convention to the
national Democratic convention are in
structed to use all honorable means to
secure a similar declaration by said
national convention and to support
only such men for the presidency as
are in full and pronounced sympathy
with these principles.
We are also opposed to the contrac
tion of the currency by the retirement
of any part of the out-standing treas
ury notes.
We favor a tariff for revenue only
and declare that the government should
collect no more taxes than necessary
to defray the expenses of the govern
ment honestly and economically ad
We are unalterably opposed to re
vival of any such monstrosity in legis
lation as that act of congress which
was known as the McKinley law which
for the fiscal year ending June 20, 1893,
produced a deficit in the United States
treasury of $70,000,000 under which
wages were greatly lowered and which
gave proprietors monopoly, while it
permitted them to fill their shops with
the cheapest kind of cheap labor
brought from all parts of the earth.
We demand the abolition of govern
ment by injunction, that new form of
oppression and weapon of the money
power, never before heard of among
men, whereby a federal judge at once
became legislator, judge and executor.
It is absolutely destructive of Repub
lican institutions, it robs the American
citizen of the right of trial by jury and
of all the protection grantetd by the
The arbitrary interference on the
part of the federal government in local
affairs by ignoring' lawful authorities is
not only a violation of the constitution
of the United States, but a crime
against free government and is des
tructive of the very foundation of De
mocratic and Republican institutions.
We cordially indorse the administra
tion of Gov. Altgeld.
The delegates from this convention to
the national Democratic convention are
Instructed to support only such men
for the presidency as are In full and
prcnounced sympathy with the dec
larations of this platform and the del
egates to the national convention are
Instructed to vote upon all matters in
cluding nominations for candidates as
a unit.
A minority report was offered oppos
ing the plank which instructed the
delegates at large to vote as a unit, but
it was laid on the table and the plat
form as read was adopted by a viva
voce vote.
The ticket was then named as given
above and the convention adjourned.

lisle, and the financial plank reads as fol
"Holding it to be impossible for man to
measure value by more than one standard,
and being firmly convinced that a change in
the standard for the measure of value at
this time would result in a financial panic,
and believing that every government owes it
to its own honor and to its citizens, that it
shall so order its laws as to require all debts
to be paid in money as nearly possible c>jual
in value to the money in circulation at the
time of the creation of the debt, we declare
it to be the duty of the United States to
maintain the present gold standard.
"We believe in the use of silver as cur
rent money, and in the coinage and circula
tion of such amounts thereof as can be kept
at a parity with gold, but we oppose the'
free and unlimited coinage of silver by this
government alone as a measure borr >wed
from Populism and fraught, if successful,
with dishonor and disgrace to the nation or.tl
destruction to the people. We believe that
the issue of the greenbacks by a Republican
congress under the exigencies of a fireat civil
war, and which were then declared 'o be a
temporary expedient and their retsnU >n in
circulation by subsequent congressional ac
tion has contributed to mis-educate and de
bauch the public mind upon questions of
finance more than all other causes com
bined. We favor the establishment of a fee
system of banking under rigid governmental"
supervision in order that the people may
have at all times a safe, sound and elastic
currency amply sufficient for the transactions
of their business."
Delegates at large were selected as fol
lows: George Clark, Rufus Hardy, T. L.
Matlock. Alternates, F. L. Anthony, C. M.
Rodgers, W. L. Crawford and D. C. Gid
Tonight the convention is having a big
wrangle over the adoption of the platform.
There were two reports from the commit
tee on platform and resolutions. The ma
jority report favored silver at the ratio of 16
to 1, and the minority, presented by Jona
than Lane, favored an indorsement of Cleve
land and Carlisle and a gold standard. Gov.
Hogg presented a substitute to the majority
report favoring the free and unlimited coin
age of sliver at the ratio of 16 to 1 irrespect
ive of the action of foreign governments.
This raised considerable discussion, which
was still in progress at midnight, when an
adjournment was had until morning, when
the speech-making will be continued.
Will the Vote of Ohio Be Ca»t at
Chicago. •
COLUMBUS, 0.. June 23.—The preliminary
meetings tonight showed that the silver men !
have almost 600 of the 675 delegates in the
convention which meets tomorrow. At the ;
district meetings the silver men carried sev- j
enteen of the congressional districts and the j
gold men four. The committee on resolu
tions and other, committees including the :
state central committee, stand 17 to 4. |
The Ohio delegation to Chicago whin the I
delegates are all choseu, will probably stand
38 to 8 for free silver, although the silver
men claim 40 to 6. With their large ma
jority in this convention the silver men in
tend tomorrow to instruct the Ohio delega
tion for free coinage and to vote as a unit
so that the four gold districts which in- |
elude Dayton, Hamilton, Toledo and Clrve
land will be shut out.
While the instructions on free sliver will ;
be ironclad there will be no instructions for ,
president. Most of the county conventions j
had Indorsed ex-Gov. Campbell for preal- j
dent before the tidal wave for free silver set
In, and now the silver leaders claim that
Campbell is too conservative on fnan- ;
cial question. Col. Joseph Rickey of Mis- !
sour! has been active all day in the interest
of Bland for President. Gen. A. J. Warner,
president of the American Bimetallic league,

terest of the fusion of all silver interests. ;
The sliver slate includes John R. McLean, ■
John W. Bookwalter, Allen Thurman and L.
L. Holden for delegates at large. Very little

When the delegates met by congressional
districts tonight the silver men did not have ;

Indiana Convention Will Adopt an
Ultra Money Plank.
INDIANAPOLIS, June 23.—The Democratic
state convention will meet in this city to
morrow. There will be 1,747 delegates pres
ent. B. F. Shively will, it is believed, be the
nominee for governor. There is little doubt
that the convention will adopt an ultra free
sliver platform. The proportion of delegates
in the convention In favor of free silver will
be about 1.400 to 300 In favor of the gold
standard. Gov. Matthews will be Indorsed for
president, and the delegates will be instructed
to vote for him In the national convention.
The district metlngs held tonight were
without contests, except in the Seventh dis
trict, where two sets were selected. The
committee on credentials will decide which
set will go to Chicago. It is probable that
the contesting silver delegates will be seated.
This will send to Chicago W. F. English and
Charles M. Cooper. All of the delegates are
for free silver except W. F. English, whose
personal sentiment is lor gold, but he is an
enthusiastic friend of Matthews, and was
the governor's choice. He has agreed to
stand by the majority, and vote for Mathews
and silver. James Murdock, of Lafayette, is
also personally for gold.
