LOUIS CONVENTION All Night the Coliseum, Filled With Thousands of Demonstrative People, Rings With Shouts as Nom inating Speeches Are (Made—lowa Man Objects to Fellow Delegates Seconding Hearst and Himself Seconds Judge Parker Special to The Globe and New York Herald CONVENTION HALL, ST. 'LOUIS, Mo., July 8. As this dispatch is being -Written the convention is in the throes of the presentation of candidates, and Judge Alton B. Parker, of New York, is apparently as certain of the Democratic nomi nation as ever. A ballot will not be taken until daybreak, and the nomination has been deferred to meet the superstitions of those who did not want to launch their ticket on Friday. When Judge Parker's name was presented twenty-four stales, representing about six hundred delegates, sent their standards parading through the hall, and the demonstration for Judge Parker lasted for twenty-eight minutes. The making of the platform was really the most important work of the convention. It has aroused greater interest here and throughout the country than the selection of the can didate for president. It is anticipated by Judge Parker's friends that the omission of all reference to the money ques tion will be a disappointment to the Democrats of the East and will handicap them in the struggle for the electoral votes of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The platform is in the nature of a compromise. Bryan, aving been voted down yesterday in the platform commit tee on his motion to reaffirm the Kansas City platform, made a strong struggle against any recognition of the existing money Uandard. He threatened the committee with a plank declar-' ing for an income tax to be obtained by constitutional amend ment. Mr. Bryan might have carried such a plank in the committee. Many Democrats in the South and West are in favor of the income tax, because they are looking for a source of revenue if the tariff is revised, and the plank Mr. Bryan pro posed was a substitute for the income tax plank in the Chi cago platform that contemplated packing the supreme.court of the United States. Mr. Bryan would obtain the income tax now not by packing the supreme court but by amending the constitution. Hill, Bryan and John Sharp Williams finally reached a compromise by which both the money plank and the income tax plank were dropped. Hill surrendered on gold. Bryan beaten on reaffirmation, surrendered on the income tax. TAMMANY MAKES FIGHT Tammany Hall, opposing Parker to the end, sought to make a fight for the gold standard on the floor of the convention. Such a struggle might have meant reaffirmation of the Chi cago and Kansas City platforms before it was over, because it is known that in every Parker state delegation there Was a strong minority who have a friendly feeling for W. J. Bryan, but Tammany would not have cared for that. Its only object has been to hurt Parker. The previous question, however, shut the Tammany troublemakers out and the platform went through. Many of Judge Parker's friends are disappointed that there should have been«any compromise ■with Bryan. At the •same time, they would have preferred siler.ce on the gold question to having the party committed once more to the income tax. They are somewhat reconciled to the capitulation by Hill, by the thought that matters might have been worse if Bryan had brought in a minority report of the platform committee.

H I r<Wf(<r OUT I TRIO CONFESS TO BEARMOUTH ROBBERY Imitators of Chicago Car Barn Bandits Tell of Holding Up Montana Train CHICAGO, July B.—Three men, sim ilar to the car barn bandits, Marx, Van Dine and Niedermeier, are being held here while investigation is being made of assaults, hold-ups and train robber ies the prisoners are accused of. The existence of the band, whose members say they are "the original automatic trio," became known through the confession of one of them, Truman H. Wilkins, who lies at the point of death from a bullet wound, received after he and his companions had held up and shot John C. Meiler, secretary of a labor, union. Suffering from a mortal wound, Wilkins made a con fession, implicating two of his. com panions, Charles Pheloyn and William Erwin, who were surprised and cap tured in a room. Later the two men confessed. The prisoners admitted the robbery of a Northern Pacific train at Bear mouth, Mont., recently, but said noth ing of a shooting which took place in connection. In his confession Pheloyn spoke of having committed numerous robberies, one of which was in a jew elry store at Waukegan, 111., $3,000 worth of jewelry having been secured. Pheloyn boasts of having lived in style at Chicago hotels. AH three prisoners told of $6,000 buried by them in In diana. ETZEL'S LfFE PAID FOR IN MEXICAN MONEY Chinese Government Pays $25,000 for Death of War Correspondent LONDON, July B.—Cabling under date of July 8, the Standard's corre spondent at Tien Tsin says: "The Chinese government today paid to the American consul 25,000 Mexican dollars as indemnity for the death of Lewis Etzel." The Democratic Fleet Has United MM DRAFTED EIGHT HOUR PUNK Grlmshaw Explains inside Work of Republican Committee on Resolutions Report charges John O'ponnell, state labor commissioner and, a delegate from Hennepin county to the late Re publican state convehtie-**! with being responsible for the JeigTit-hour plank in the platform adopted by the conven tion. It is said that the original draft of the resolutions, as prepared by that authoritative source of most of the Re publican platforms for some years past, William H. Grimshaw, United States marshal 'for Minnesota, contained no reference to an eigfcjjt-hour plank, but O'Donnell appeared before the resolu tions committee at its meetirfg Thurs day night at the Ryan hotel, and vrged the adoption of a plan proposed by him. Acting on. his suggestion the resolutions committee' added the plank, then substituted a tariff plank of their own way of thinking for Grimshaw's tariff plank and presented the resolu tions to the convention the next day. The resolution indorsing Van~Sant*s administration was the handiwork of Grimshaw, and the committee, several members of whom were opposed to the plank but did not have the ■ nerve to move its elimination, included this plank with the others and the whole platform went, through the convention without discussion. A Minneapolis paper a few days ago gave a circumstantial x report of the arduous work of the resolutions com mittee in preparing the. platform ~£ or presentation to the. conveation. Mar shal Grimshaw, who' unquestionably spent some time in the preparation of the draft of the resolutions and who gave his draft to Senator George R. Laybourn, of -Duluth, after Senator Clapp had examined the' report and given it his approval, is not at all pleased with the committee getting all the credit for the effort. Grimshaw Declares Himself "That is all bosh; I purely imaginary," Grimshaw said yesterdayi. "The com t mittee took out my plank and added one of its own, and*added the i eight-hour plank offered tby O'Dorinell.

A division of the guards is near the Yalu, and the Tenth division is near Takushan, both the divisions are marching in the direction of Baicheng, and on their left and right flank are reserves from the Yalu. Gen. Oku's army is composed of three divisions and with the Sixth di vision and another unnamed division is marching toward Port Arthur. Think It a Maneuver ST. PETERSBURG, July 8. — The war office confirms the reports of the Japanese advance toward Kaichou, but is inclined to regard the movement as a demonstration south while chang- ing the disposition of troops to make an attack elsewhere. Danger is con sidered more likely from the direction of To, or Fenshui pass, although there is no sign of a move in force thence. Yet the advance upon Kaichou ex tends over a front of fifteen miles and Includes about 30,000 men. The Japa nese center is at Tai Shan on the Choui river, eight miles southeast of Kai chou. Constant skirmishing with Gens. Samsonoff and Chirikoff is occurring as the Japanese move forward along the railroad and from the Siu-yan mountains. The military expert of the Russkyjn Viedomesti believes Gen. Kuropatkin has now decided to accept a general engagement near Liau-yang, wherefore he is not offering strong resistance to the advance of the Japanese from Feng Wang Chen, desiring to di' ,v them on his selected ground. Japs Capture. Guns LONDON, July 9. —The Tokyo cor respondent of the Daily Chronicle, un der date of July 9, says that the Jap anese captuaed over ten guns and fifty prisoners near Kaichou. No other dispatches In confirmation of the fore going have been received. PRICE TWO CENTS PARKER'S NAME IS CHEERED WILDLY CONVENTION PASSES TIME IN NOMINATIONS Continuous Demonstration for Parker Lasts Nearly Half an Hour—Making of the Platform Is the Most Impor tant Work of the Convention—Pre vious Question Shuts Out Parker's Opponents and the Platform Goes Through Special to The Globe CONVENTION HALL, ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 9, 3:00 a. m.—At this hour there is almost a certainty that a nomination will be made before adjourn ment is taken. The men who have been shouting themselves hoarse all night are still at it and willing to go any distance. The speech-making, which has been continuous all night, is still insisted. Mr Bryan was just given an ovation when he arose to give way to Rose, of Wisconsin, \*ho presented the name of E. C. Wall. It is probable that many of the states will pass their call on the roll, but Nebraska will be heard from at length...lt is the general impression and the object of the leaders to take one ballot on the presidential nomination before adjourning. The nomination of Parker on the first ballot is not probable in view of the great number of nominees, Parker, Olney, Hearst, Gray, Miles, Wall and Cockrell having been put before the convention. ST. LOUIS, Mo., July B.—The Democratic national con vention tonight adopted a platform by a viva voee vote and. listened to nominating speeches for president. Judge Alton B. Parker was named by Martin W. Littleton, and William Randolph Hearst by E. M. Delmas. Both orators were ap plauded at length. Anti-Parker delegations attempted to create enthusiasm for their candidate, but the Parker men remained undisturbed and unconcerned. Hearst delegates paraded the hall, taut the showing was small in comparison with the Parker procession which preceded it. Nominating speeches for favorite son candidates and sec onding speeches for both Parker and Hearst occupied the convention for several hours. HALL IS OVERCROWDED The convention hall seats about 10,300 persons, and from appearances hundreds more had been admitted. The floor and lower and upper galleries contained thousands of swel tering men and women oblivious to the fact that the crowded condition of the hall endangered every ,life. The Coliseum interior looked like a huge basin with bot tom and sides formed by closely packed persons. Not an aisle could be seen. They were filled by spectators who could find no other place. Outside and in the crowds were the same, except for the fact that those within the hall were s. iSfied and those without were turbulent. PLATFORM IS ADOPTED N As soon as the convention had been called to order Chair man Clark announced that the report of the committee on resolutions was ready. Senator Daniel read the report as Continued on Eighth Page TORNADO AND DYNAMITE ARE TIED ON VICTIMS Seven Men Killed and Two Are Seriously Injured by Storm in Missouri, While an Equal Number Are Dead and (Maimed by Premature Explosion Among Railroad Workers in Ontario SUDBURY, Ont., July B.—Seven men killed and two men injured is the result of a premature dynamite explosion upon the new Canadian Pacific Sudbury-Toronto line near Romford.- T^ dead are three Austrians, three Jgjnnb and the walking boss, H.
