GOODHUE JOINS THE OTHERS. CLAPP MEN, HOWEVER, CLAIM THE REPORTS SEXT IN ARE PREJUDICED, THEY STILL HOPE FOR SUCCESS. t m Personal Preferences They Say "Will Cat a Large Figure in the Result. In the Republican contest for the gu bernatorial nomination, Gov. Clough is ahead up to date. Of the twenty or more counties which have reported their delegates, the present governor has a good majority, on the face of the returns, materially strengthened by twenty-six votes from Goodhue county, as the result of yesterday's convention. Clapp men. at least, claim that the reports sent In are prejudiced and do ; not represent the actual sentiments of the delegations. They assert that when it comes to voting in the convention, the personal preferences of the dele gates will outweigh the instructions of the county conventions. For instance, the anti-Clough men assert that St. Louis, Morrison, Mower, and at least three other counties which are already credited to Gov. Clough will be badly divided, If they are not absolutely hos tile. Clapp's friends say that they base their assertions oh private advices, and they seem to think that if Clough can not land the nomination on the first ballot he will not secure it at all. Tarns Bixby and Ramsey county Clough men assert emphatically that If they cannot win on the first ballot they do not want to win at all. These gentlemen seem to have good ground for their assertions, because only three out of the twenty-two counties which have yet voted decisively are clearly for Clough, unless all reports are wrong. The anti-Clough people assert, too, that the governor will carry Ram sey and Hennepin. If he does he will be renominated. If he doesn't, he will be defeated. LINE UP FOR CLOUGH. Goodhue a Banner County for the Governor. Special to the Globe. REDWING, Minn., June 24.—Good hue county • sends twenty-six in structed delegates for Clough. At the county convention to-day all the pres ent county officers were renominated, except attorney. Albert Johnson was nominated for attorney. Special to the Globe. AITKIN, Minn,, June 24.—The Re publican county convention here to day the following delegates were elected to the state convention: B. Lemere, D. L. Young, J. Weedburg, O. G. Peterson, C. P. Delallttre, P. Han son, A. B. Ferow and A. Y. Merrill, of Temple Court, Minneapolis, delegates were Instructed for F. L. Gibbs. Delegates to the congressional conven tion are S. Graves, Geo. Knox, W. Potter, E. B. Lowell, F. M. Shook, W. B. Marr, F. Hense, all are opposed to C. A. Towne and are gold standard men. Special to the Globe. KASSON, June 24.—The Republican primaries to elect delegates to the county convention at this place Sat urday, the 27th, were held through out the county from 2 to 6 p. m. yes terday. At this precinct the bitterest fight In the party for many years was waged, the factions being arrayed as "Clough" and "anti-Clough" and the factions led by S. T. Littleton for Clough, and Geo. B. Arnold as anti- Cuough, the result being the election of the twelve anti-Clough delegates. It was learned this morning that Mantorville, Dodge Center and Clare mont have also elected anti-Clough delegates, and it seems safe to predict that the convention will be strongly anti-Clough, sending an anti-Clough delegation to the state convention July 1. Special to the Globe. SAUK RAPIDS, Minn., June 24.— The Sauk Rapids Republican primary election . was held this evening. A Clough delegation was elected unani mously. The county will send a solid Clough delegation to the state con vention. Special to the Globe. HERON LAKE, Minn., June 24.— At the Republican convention held at Jackson to elect delegates to the state convention at St. Paul, and also to the district congressional convention to be held at Mankato the delegates were instructed for Gibbs for governor first, last and all the time, and while no instructions were given to the dis trict delegates they are all solid for McCleary for congress. Special to the Globe. MOORHEAD, Minn., June 24.—The delegates from Clay county to the Re publican state convention were in structed for Hon. W. B. Douglas for attorney general. There were no in structions on governor, and the delega tion Is neither for nor against any can didate. VETERANS GET PATRIOTIC Have Happy Times at the Cannon Valley Encampment, Special to the Globe. NORTHFIELD. Minn., June 24.—The Can non Valley division, G. A. R., are encamped in the city today and Northfield Is overflowing with patriotism. The usual accompaniments of Fourth of July have marked the day's events—street parades, fireworks and music by several bands which are competing for prizes. Prominent among the speakers at the afternoon and evening exercises were Mayor F S- Noble, Commander J. C. Davison, Mrs. J. A. Clifford, Post Commander L. L.

DULUTH, Minn., June 24.—With a divided Democracy on the silver ques tion, a bolting congressman in the Re publican party and a very much mixed up and antagonistic sentiment through out the city and county, politics in Duluth are as warm as they make them, and the coming campaign Is filled with possibilities of "scrap" de lightful to the pugnacious senses of old war horses. A few days ago E. C. Grldley, a local free silver Democrat, sent a letter to Gov. Altgeld suggest ing that the free silver forces hold aloof from the Chicago convention, allow the party to declare for gold, and then combine at St. Louis on a renegade candidate for president. Mr. Gridley assumed to pledge the support of the Democracy of this district to such a move. Naturally enough his action has aroused a storm of Indignation. Local Democrats protest strongly against Mr. Gridley's presumption in represent ing the party and, one of the most prominent men connected with the lo cal party organization has mailed a letter to Gov. Altgeld in which he says: Mr. Grldley is not a leader In the Demo cratic party of our city or state. On the contrary, his allegiance to par:y principle has been viewed with suspicion for four years last past. The Democrats of Duluth are in favor of free coinage of sliver and gold at the ratio of 16 to 1, as expressed In their resolutions unanimously adopted at lut-ir late county convention. "Eight at least of the Minnesota delegation of eighteen to the national convention will work and vote for a Democratic (Demo cratic underlined) candidate who is in favor of free coinage. Mr. Grldley, whose Democracy is of the quality which will hardly keep over night unless put In a cool place, speaks on«y wr himself. Not another Democrat In the state of Minnesota, so far as I am able to learn, shares In his gauzy dreams. The Democ racy of Minnesota believes that a. Chicago, July 7, will be nominated the next president of the United States, and that the party will not have to go outside the members of Us own convention to find a half-dozen candi dates of whose fitness there can bo no «iues tion or doubt. "For my own part, my judgment is that Horace Boies would command the support of the largest number of voters on elec tion day." Mr. Gridley raised a muss two years ago by roasting Congressman Baldwin for his action in voting for the re moval of the tariff on Iron ore, so his Democracy has been seriously ques tioned ever since. GREETING TO TOWNB. Duluth Silverltes Turn Out to Con gratulate the Bolter. Special to the Globe. DULUTH, Minn., June 24.—Congressman Tpwne returned home this morning and to night a mass meeting was held at which 10,000 people were congregated. His reception was enthusiastic and he made a speech stat ing his position. He said that he had done as he believed it was his duty to do. There was no other course for him. He inquired what sinister motive had guided him as some papers had intimated. The party had held out the promise of re-demonetization of silver, and when it failed he could do but one thing, and he was not sorry he had done it. He promised he would keep at the fight day after day and night after night until the campaign Is over, and challenge his opponent to debate the money question in the Interests of popular education on the subject. A number it local speakers representing the labor union and citizens made brief addresses. Honored Dr. Xojpj.

SARATOGA, N. V., June 24.—The Democratic state convention that con vened this morning and adjourned this afternoon, has put itself on record on the financial question and has selected its delegates to the national conven tion, but In doing these things, It has followed out the predictions of weeks ago and has not created any sensation of even mild surprise. It has declined to name its electors, has not put itself on record on any state issue, and has left the" selection of a .state committee until the next state convention. These things have all been done at the in stance of the leaders and with the avowed purpose of placing the party In such a position that no matter what the platform of the national party is, It can be supported by the electors and the party In this state. The list of delegates and alternates la as follows: Delegates-at-large—David 8. Hill, Roswell P. Flower, Edward Murphy, Jr., Frederick R. Coudert Alternates-at-large—Robert Earl, Smith M.

The convention was called to order by the chairman who presented John Boyd Thatcher for temporary chair man. In the course of his speech on assuming the chair, Mr. Thatcher said: Facing Chicago, we confess that the situation is not without peril. Circum stances, some of which, perhaps, might have been controlled, have created what we believe to be an erroneous financial faith, a faith which has spread alarmingly in the West and South, and which has fouftd adherents even in the East and North. If we are to accomplish our mission at Chicago, we must go there to persuade erring brothers and not to quarrel with enem ies. The people who hold these strange views are honest, but mistaken. We must make them see that we are as honest as they are, and that our views are right. At this late day, the task seems gigantic, but it is not hopeless. If ever there should be a campaign of education It is now. It is the duty of the Democracy in the present crisis to speak clearly on the financial question. The party of Jefferson and Jackson has always favored the best money in use. The money adopted as the standard by the most enlightened nations of the earth. Neither consideration of exped iency, nor the selfish Interest of those who own silver bullion should lead us to depart from the safe and secure path. The people have not for gotten that the silver purchase law, bearing the name of an Ohio stateman, was the work of a Republican congress and of a Republican president. That law made of silver a commodity and un fitted it for its true mission, a medium of exchange. Nor have the people for gotten that the repeal of that law was the work of a Democratic congress and of a Democratic president. If it had done no other thing in its four years of power and responsibility, our party should have the gratitude and con fidence of the country for thus stopping the coinage of a seventy-cent dollar. Mr." Thatcher's speech was freely ap plauded. During the call of the roll of delegates there were enthusiastic and protracted cheers when 1 the name of William C. Whitney was reached, and a demonstration of almost equal fervor greeted the name of David B. Hill, a few minutes later. After the appoint ment of the various committees the convention took a recess. On reconvening, the temporary or ganization was made permanent. The committee on credentials reported In favor of the sitting delegates in every case, and, upon the report being adopt ed, the Shepardltes from Kings county and the Wayne county contestants walked out of the convention, amid hisses from the delegates. BIMETALLIC PLATFORM. The platform, which was read by Senator Hill, was adopted, as follows: It would be folly to Ignore and impos sible to exagerate the gravity of the conditions under which this conven tion assembles. Most of the other states of the Union have selected and commissioned their delegates to the national Democratic convention. By a movement, evidently concerted, but as we believe, ill-advised and ill-consid ered, instructions have been given to the delegations of a large number of states having for their aim and pur pose the adoption of a .new policy and a new platform for the Democratic party. No opportunity for a' fair and delib erate consideration of such policy and platform has been afforded the Democ racy of the state of New York. Upon such new matter thus proposed to be incorporated among the tenets of the party, it becomes the duty of the Dem crats of New York, representing their people, to speak in no equivocal terms. Gold and silver—the money of the constitution and of our fathers —each at a parity with the other in purchas ing power, has been the platform pro claimed by every national Democratic convention, which hasj thus adopted and reaffirmed by each declaration of party faith for a century the wisdom of Thomas Jefferson, who said: "The unit must stand on boih/ metals." The action of a Republican congress, and a Republican president deprived sliver of its equality with gold for the money and currency of the nation. From 'this —for which fhe Democratic party was in nowise responsible—and from tSfe action of other nations fol loiwng in |he same course, it has re sulted'that silver has greatly declined in commercial value and there now ex ists a wide departure of the two met als from the coinage standard of value —bringing disturbance to the financial systems of European countries as well B. F. VOREIS, OF FAIRMONT* Democratic Delegate to the Chicago Convention From Second District. as to our own, and awakening there, as here, the earnest apprehension of statesmen and financiers. The restoration of the equilibrium of the two metals thus disturbed is a problem, the solution of which is of the greatest consequence to the prosperity of both this country and of Europe, but Is wholly beyond our power with- j out the cooperation of other nations. Such cooperation by the united efforts of statesmen and wage-earners here and elsewhere, Is believed to be near at hand and to be possible to secure by earnest and well directed efforts. Free coinage of sliver by the United States alone, can have no other effect than to change our present standard to one of silver—now a depreciated coin—and to retard, perhaps destroy forever, the success of the movement now general throughout civilized countries, for the restoration of free bimetallic coinage In the principal mints of the world. The proposition to separate ourselves from the great na tions of the world and adopt the mone tary standard of Mexico and China does not comport with the pride and financial dignity of the state of New York or the United States. It should be resisted with the fervor of both partisanship and patriotism by Democrats everywhere, when the adoption of such a course threatens, as It does, untoiS evils to our nation's commerce and industry. PRINCIPLES OFFERED. For these reasons and with these convictions, the Democrats of New York in convention assembled, make j the following declaration of their prin ciples and appeal to the Democrats of other states to join with them in Incorporating these principles in the party platform to be adopted at Chi cago. We favor gold and sliver as the standard money of the country. We are opposed as a permanent financial policy to gold monometallism on one hand, or to sliver monometallism on the other hand. The pledge contained j in the repeal of the Sherman bill, which repeal was passed by a Democratic congress and approved by a Democrat- j ie president should be faithfully oar rled out, wherein it was declared that: "The efforts of the government should j be steadily directed to the establish ment of such a safe system of bimetal lism as will maintain at all times the equal power of every dollar coined or issued by the United States in the markets and In payment of debts." We believe that such bimetallism to which the* nation Is solemnly pledged, can only be secured and permanently maintained through the concurrent ac tion of the leading nations of the world. Neither this country nor any other I country, independent and alone, is able | to maintain it and it would be folly j to attempt it. Being so convinced, we j are opposed to the free and unlimited coinage of silver in the absence of the cooperation of other great nations. We declare our belief that any at tempt on the part of the United States alone to enter upon the experiment of free silver coinage would not only prove disastrous to our finances, but would retard or entirely prevent the establishment of international bimetal lism. Until international co-operation for bimetallism can be secured —to which end all our efforts as a govern ment, and as a people should be in good faith directed—we favor the rigid maintenance of the present gold stand ard essential to the preservation of our national credit, the redemption of our public" pledges and the keeping invio late of our country's honor. We Insist that all our pjg?er and silver currency shall be kept£§»bsolutely at a parity with gold. •?!? The Democratic party has ever been and still Is the hard money party, and It will preserve that record. It is op posed to legal tender paper money as a part of our permanent financial sys tem, and it refuses to sanction any pa per currency inconvertible with coin. The United States notes and terasury notes being In fact debts of the gov ernment, should be gradually paid off, retired and cancelled. This should, and must be done in such a manner as to cause no contraction of the circula ting money of the country. So long as they exist, however, and are permit ted to circulate as money they should ; be redeemable at all times upon de- j mand in the standard money of the country. PUBLIC CREDIT. The Democratic party Is pledged to the resolute maintenance of the pub lic credit at all times and under all cir cumstances, and it is, therefore, op posed to the repeal of any existing I statute which enables the secretary of i the terasury, by the issue of bonds or otherwise to provide an adequate fund for the redemption In gold of our pa per obligations whenever necessary. We reiterate our adherence to the principle of a tariff for revenue only, i We are opposed to government part- j nership with protected monopolies and we demand that import duties, like other taxes, should be impartially laid and their imposition limited to the ne cessities of the government, economi cally administered. Federal taxation should not be.-imposed to benefit indi vidual interests at the expense of the general welfare. We repudiate the doctrine thatfMs the province of the government by the exercise or abuse of the power of taxation to build up one man's business at the expense of i PRICE TWO CENTS—| JRS^gH. anothers, or to Impose burdens upon one class of citizens for the benefit of other classes, and we insist that "No public taxation except for public pur poses" is the true theory upon which it should be honestly and impartially ad ministered. Upon this principle of reve nue reform, the Democratic party takes no step backward. We endorse the administration of President Cleveland, and particularly commend him for his determined effort to maintain the financial credit of the United States. It is hereby further re solved that the delegates to the nat ional Democratic convention selected by this convention are hereby instruct ed to enter that convention as a unit and to vote and act as a unit in ac cordance with the will of the majority thereof. Ex-Governor Flower offered the fol lowing, which was adopted with ap plause: Whereas, party division at Chicago on the silver question will endanger Democratic success at the polls; and Whereas, Republican ascendancy In the nation would undoubtedly be fol lowed by another attempt to establish minority rule in the Democratic South ern states by means of a force bill. Therefore, be it Resolved, that the Democrats of New York appeal to the Democrats of the South in the name of their political liberty and their properties to avert the possibility of a force bill by uniting with the Democrats of the East and West in framing a platform on which all Democrats can stand and the united support of which will lead to a glorious Democratic victory. A resolution expressing sympathy with the insurgents in Cuba was intro duced by Congressman Sulzer and adopted. The routine business having then been transacted, the con vention adjourned. SAY IRELAND DID IT. Knocked A. P. A. Plank Prom the St. Louis Platform. ST. LOUIS, June 24.—1t was stated last night that It was through the Influence of Archbishop Ireland that a plank proposed by the American Protective association was not adopted as a part of the platform at the re cent Republican national convention in this city. The word was £lven out that Col. E. H. Sellers, president of the national council of patriotic associations of the United States, was at work to get a plank In the platform Indorsing the A. P. A. On the very day Col. Sellers sent a copy of what he wanted em bodied In the platform to Mr. Foraker, chair man of the committee on resolutions, the following telegram waa received by Chair man Thomas H. Carter, of the national Re publican committee, from Archbishop Ire land: "St. Paul, Minn., June 17, 1896.—T0 Hon. Thomai! H. Carter, National Committeeman, St. Louis, Mo.: The clause In the proposed platform opposing the use of public money for sectarian purposes and union of church and state Is unnecessary and uncalled for. It is urged by the A. P. A. Its adoption will be taken as a concession to them; will awaken religious animosity In the country and do much harm. The Republican party should not lower itself to recognize, directly or Indirectly, the A. P. A. I hope the clause or anything like It will not be adopted. Jchn Ireland." Col. Sellers, In an Interview, said he gave a copy of the platform of the patriotic so cieties to Mr. Foraker, and also to Senator Gear, of lowa. He was told by the latter that the paragraph declaring against the appropriation of money from the United States treasury for sectarian purposes would be Incorporated, and that the committee had . taken favorable action upon it. Later In the day (Wednesday) he was surprised to learn from a member of the committee that Its action had been reconsidered, and that there would be nothing In the platform In that re gard. All this is now.explained by the tele gram from the archblshcp at St. Paul.

Whole Country Arointed and Murder ers Can Hardly Hoik- to Escape. I Special to the Glebe. GLENCOE, Minn., June 24. — A farmer riding Into town from the north this afternoon was accosted by two rather stoutly built young men, one wearing a black slouch hat and the other a straw hat. who Insisted on riding to town. A mile north of town one of the vagrants shot a dog be longing to Ben. Mathews, a farmer residing near by. On Mathews remon strating be was knocked down and severely pummelled. They then con tinued their way toward town. Math ews immediately followed and swore out a warrant. In the meantime the strangers had purchased tobacco at a grocery and bread at a bakery and proceeded on foot southward toward Arlington. At 6:15 the warrant for their arrest was placed in the hands of Sheriff Rogers and accompanied by Louis Link, a young wagon maker, he started In pursuit. About four miles south of town they overtook the fu gitives, who, as they drove up. sepa rated to opposite sides of the road. Sheriff Rogers stepped from the buggy remarking: "I want you fellows." One of the strangers remarked: "Oh, I guess not," at the same time fired the contents of^a loaded gun Into the ground at the sheriff's feet. Rogers prepared to draw his revolver when the tramp, taking deliberate aim, poured the contents of the weapon into the officer's breast. Link succeeded in making his escape and driving a mile toward town se cured the assistance of two farmers and going back found the sheriff dead by the roadside. He immediately drove with the body to town and the toll of the fire bell at 7:30 followed by the news threw the town Into an in describable state of excitement Armed bands immediately started in pursuit and are scouring the country south of town while all the men of the sur rounding country are prepared to take to the hunt by daylight As the country is sparsely timbered and thick ly settled the chances of capturing the desperadoes before to-morrow's sunset are very favorable. If captured lynch ing is not improbable as Sheriff Rogers was a universal favorite in the com munity. An examination of the sheriff's body showed that he had been shot four times. The following is a description of the murderers from those who took a casual look as they passed through town: Two men about 25 years old, dark complexion, medium height, square build, thin faces, weighed about 150 pounds each, both had dark mous taches, perhaps false, and looked enough alike to be brothers, both were well dressed, wore dark colored cloth ing, one had a light straw hat the other a cow boy hat. The police in St. Paul were notified of the murder of Sheriff Rogers early in the evening the news coming to Chief Goss in the shape of the follow ing telegram: Sheriff Rogers wae shot and kl'lefl this evening by two tramps. Both medium sized young men. One wore slouch hat and the other straw hat. Both dressed m dark cloth ing. One had moustache. One carried re volver, the other rifle. Shooting occurred four miles south oi Glencce. (Signed) A. F. ALLEN. County Attorney.
