s It was immediately antagonized by former Senator Hill, who stated that ■with such a plank in the platform, New York could not be carried by the Democratic nominees. He urged the adoption of a platform which would enable the Democrats to win in doubt- iul states and elect their candidates. Mr. Williams withdrew the amend ment, saying that he, with many other Democrats, was seeking harmony and an adjustment of all differences with a view of succeeding op a Democratic platform. Income Tax Again Mr. Bryan then offered an income tax amendment and made a speech in" favor of it. He asserted that, while votes might be lost among the very rich, the Democratic pary ought to consider the great mass of the people, who bear the burdens of taxation and the expense of the government. • Senator Daniel replied to Bryan, and ■was very vigorous in his denunciation of the course the Nebraska man was pursuing. He said that he wanted to win, and desired a platform which vwould bring back to this Democratic party the voters who had left it when pursuing a* course which Mr. Bryan had shaped and advocated. He was tired of being forever in the minority and insisted that it would be absurd for Democrats, facing victory, to take any action which would mean defeat. To lose New York meant defeat. Senators Bailey and Tillman, while believing in an income tax, said that In view of the statement of the New Tork member of the committee, it would be unwise to insist upon the in come-tax plank. Hill Explains His Attitude 'Senator Bailey then asked unani mous consent to have both the income tax amendment and the gold standard plank dropped, but to this Mr. Hill ob jected, and there was a prolonged dis cussion, Mr. Hill taking a leading part in it. Mr. Hill began by saying that he was in this campaign not from per sonal motives, but because of his loy alty and enthusiasm for the Demo cratic party. He hoped the party could cease its discussion and agree upon a platform in harmony with the views of the party generally. He was opposed to the insertion of an income tax plank, because he saw no necessity for making this new issue. "I believe," he said, "it will hurt us; it will weaken our platform, but if the members of this committee think otherwise it should go in; but the ques tion of the gold standard is of far more importance." • Mr. Hill urged that if the gold plank was omitted the party would be place 1 in a false position.: If the party was in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver, that was another thing. But, he said, through no fault of the party, conditions had changed, and it had been proved that the gold standard was the solution of the ques tion, although the Republican plat form declared in favor of gold, he pointed out that the Democrats, in their platform, could show that the Re publicans were not responsible for the change in condition which made the gold standard desirable, but the Al mighty himself. Addresses Southerners Speaking directly to the Southern members of the committee, Mr. Hill re called the time of reconstruction, and said he had always worked for Demo cratic principles along ■ Democratic lines; that he had been the friend of the South in that trying period and since that time. Mr. Hill talked eloquently of the per sonality of Judge Parker. He said that In a conversation about ten days ago with the New York jurist the latter said, in reply to a question about the kind of a platform the Democrats should adopt: "I am entirely willing to leave this to the wisdom of the Democratic party." But while Mr. Hill did not assume at any time to speak for Judge Parker, the committee interpreted the inference of his speech to be that Judge Parker favored the insertion of a gold plank. Mr. Hill declared that the Democrats could not possibly nominate a better man than Judge Parker, and spoke at pome length upon his peculiar qualifi cations for the office. He emphasized the fact that Judge Parker was in no sense an active candidate for the nom ination, and that he had not dictated anything regarding the platform. Will Give Time to Campaign "I do not think it is improper /or us to say we want to win," continued Mr. Hill. "We have stood defeats in the past and we can stand them again, it Is true. This contest, for me, means that I shall devote myself from now until November to the campaign. I shall leave my business, but I shall do It gladly, and I shall work hard for whomsoever the Democrat^ nominate, but I think the platfprm is of the greatest importance, especially the gold standard plank." He reiterated that he thought an in come tax plank would be a mistake but added that the gold plank was of far greater Importance. In conclusion he said: "Nor should one of these planks be traded f*r the other. I earnestly hope each will be taken up separately, and considered on its individual merits " Mr. Hill was applauded. Bryan Answers Hill Mr. Bryan replied at length to the argument of Mr. Hill and Insisted that in the face of past declarations of the party, a gold plank would now alienate many thousands of Democratic voters He said that, when the campaign for Judge Parker was started, it was never expected that the Democratic party was to be brought to.a declaration for the .gold standard. Mr. Thomas, of Colorado, also made a strong protest against the gold stand ard plank. Senator Carmack. of Tennessee made a plea especially for the South and said that Democratic success was nec essary in the foce of the Republican policy of imperialism. Its recent plat form was dangerous to the South He hoped some agreement could be reach ed which would bring-to the support of the Democratic South the Democratic party of the East. As to the money question, that was for the time settled and he urged that that matter be noi Injected into the coming campaign as a disturbing element. Mr- "Shiveley, of Indiana, followed .much the same line. If this money question was brought into the cam , Pfign, he said, it would raise a serious division in the Democratic party and especially in Indiana. Several con gressional districts would be endan gered. Mr. Fleming,.of Wisconsin, was op posed to the gold plank, and favored the declaration of the Williams plat form. If this committee were so di vided, how was it possible to prevent a division among the 7,000,000 Demo cratic voters. fi Daniel Attacks Bryan Shortly before 4 o'clock Senator Dan iel created a sensation by an attack upon Mr. Bryan, which soon evoked cries of "Order" from several members Senator Daniel, who had called Sena tor Tinman to the chair, began by say ing he questioned the propriety of a man whom the Democrats had twice honored with the presidential nomina tion and under whose leadership the party had twice been defeated, at tempting to force his leadership upon the party again. Growingjpore impas sioned, Senator Daniel sain, regarding Mr. Bryan: '"The silver question was a question In Virginia ten years before the gen-. tleman from Nebraska discovered it. But conditions have.^changed in the last few years and h ife- changes de mand heroic remedies. We must con- BANNERS ME FOR PARTY LEADERS Continued From First Page Thursday made them fear that any extended debate might ;■ throw"the delegates into confusion and result in a happy-go- ','. lucky free-for-all raid-on candidates. The tariff plank is very ;; conservative. It will hurt no one. Some of the leaders say it ■• might have safely been adopted by a Republican convention \\ of almost any Western state with partisan allusion omitted. TRUST PLANK THUNDEROUS The trust plank is regarded as somewhat thunderous in '•> the index, but as not being of a character to drive away the [\ support of Wall street. It would prevent trusts from doing • • any interstate commerce business. The capital and labor ',', planks recognize the" rights of capital as equal to those of " labor. !! There is some uneasiness as to the effect of the plank \ \ which pledges the party to giving the interstate commerce .- • commission larger powers will have on its interests in the \ \ East, to which Judge Parker's candidacy was supposed to ap- • • peal. . '.'. This is regarded as being in the direction of socialism be- '; cause the manifest intention of the plank is to give the inter- .. state commerce commission power to arbitrarily jpx rates. \ \ When all is said and done, Parker leaders look at the matter • • in this way: A distinct gain has been made by actually get- ',', ting away from the Chicago and Kansas City platforms. A ' ■ mistake has been made, so far as the East is concerned, in not \\ recognizing the gold standard. But this omission they say '; can be supplied by judge Parker in his letter of acceptance. < He can do as Mr. Cleveland did on the tariff in 1892, call at- \\ tention t<3 the omission and state his own intentions with ref- < erence to the money question. <; Some of the Parker managers, however, believe they have < | paid a rather high price for Mr. Bryan's adherence to the plat- < form and support of Judge Parker. ] Mr. Hearst's supporters, on the other hand, accuse Mr. < Bryan of selling out Mr. Hearst and of going over to the \\ enemy. ♦■ sider New England, New York and that section of the country. Again facing Mr. Bryan, Senator Daniel said: "He has reviled every man whom any state has recdmmended for the presi dency, and, as far as I have been able to learn, has as yet presented no.can didate of his own." At this point Senator Daniel was in terrupted with cries of "order." Sen ator Tillman, who was acting chair man, demanded order; ' and said: "Well, let's have order before this meet ing degenerates Into a conversational row." Predicts Calamity Mr. Bryan aeked that Senator Daniel be allowed to proceed, and the latter resumed by saying that he had not in tended to enter into personalities. The senator said: "I am convinced that the country is on the verge of a great catastrophe and calamity." He said further that it was urged that the Democratic party recover the reins of government. 'This is not the time," he said, "for selfish interest, fo* small conceptions of consistency, for personal likes or regards. It is not pleasant for me to give up.ray own opinion. But there are questions of, expediency to be consid ered." Senator Daniel favored the gold plank. Mr. Poe, of Maryland, made a brief but vigorous appeal for the gold plank, declaring that if the party in its plat form refused to recognize an existing fact which could neither be, denied nor effaced by omitting the gold plank, he feared that Maryland would be lost to the Democrats in the fall elections. He pointed out that the gold plank rec ommended by the subcommittee was one which the silver and gold elements in the party could easily stand upon. He said that this plank «d not call on the free silver advocates to retract or repudiate their former beliefs. . "It is simply," he said, "a recognition of an existing fact." Mr. ?oe closed by saying that the Democratic ticket would have a for lorn hope if the plank were omitted. After several other -.members had been heard briefly the question was de manded. The gold plank was stricken out by a vote of 35 to 15. Bryan Produces Financial Plank Mr. Bryan informally presented for the individual consideration of the members of the committee a financial plank which it was his intention later to present as a substitute for the gold plank. The Panama canal plank brought out a severe criticism .from Senator Pettlgrew. .He said that the canal could not be built in ten years, and, when completed, it would be valueless, for sailing vessels would n«ver go through it and steam vessels could not utilize it, because of the great con sumption of coal. The plank was mod ified so as to promise to do what could be done when the Democrats get con trol of the government. The committee then took up the trust plank. This was the subject of considerable discussion. Senator Bai ley being among the more important speakers in defense of the subcommit tee's report. Mr. Bryan offered an amendment to this plank declaring in specific terms for the prosecution of the trusts, and reciting the manner in which it ought to be done. This was voted in. by 23 to 20. The majority of the votes came from lowa, Minnesota, South Dakota. Nebraska, Wyoming, the territories, Porto Rico and Hawaii, while the neg ative votes -were from the East and South. Mr. Pettigrew offered an amendment providing for the government owner ship of railroads and telegraphs. " "Oh, that's silly," remarked Mr. Hill. "I don't mean that to be offensive," he added. "Oh, I'll not take offense at anything the gentleman says," retorted Petti grew, "especially if it were a matter of opinion." Pettigrew's amendment was voted down, and he remarked: "The gentle man from New York called that 'silly,' but he put a plank in the New York platform two years not only for the government ownership of the coal carrying railroads, but of the coal mines as well. And the ticket got a larger majority in New York city than was ever before given a Democratic candidate." Mr. Bryan, in the discussion, said that if his desired amendment to the trust plank should be adopted, he would not press the plank favoring the imposition of an income tax. Cannon Opposes Frank Cannon, of Utah, took the floor.. "I followed Mr. Bryan in 1896 and 1900," he said, "on the paramount is-, sues of those campaigns, but now that he has abandoned those issues, I will vote against this proposition he-seems to want most." Mr. Cannon contended that the para mount issue in this campaign was "vic tory" and that the issue should be "Rooseveltism." Mr. Bryan defended his position on the trust question by saying that "vic tory" alone should not essentially be the paramount issue and that unless a question was settled right it would never be settled at all. - Senator Day made a speech support ing the principles of the anti-trust leg islation. He took the position, how ever, that if enforced the existing in terstate commerce law and • anti-trust statutes are sufficient and he. believed that a Democratic administration could THE S*. PAUL GLOBE. SATURDAY, JULY 9, 1904 — i./.r . be depended upon to enforce them. Hence he then considered it safe to omit the proposed plank. The discussion continued at length and until Mr. Hill presented a substi tute for the trust plank, -which was unanimously accepted and with ap plause. It provided that whenever a trust or combination effects a mo nopoly in the production or distribu tion of any articles of trade outside the state of its origin it may be restricted by appropriate legislation from contin uing to do business in such states. Takes Up Finance Again ST. LOUIS, Mo., July B.—The com mittee resumed consideration of the financial question on the basis of the following plank introduced by Mr. Car mack: "The secretary of the treasury shall not melt the silver dollars that are now legal tender and convert them into subsidiary coin, thus reducing the vol ume of currency so fortunately in creased by the recent remarkable in crease of the gold production." The Carmack proposition was voted down without division, and' Mr. Car mack then offered the following, which the committee also failed, to accept: "We recognize that the great and un looked for increase in the production of gold, amounting in the last few years to four thousand million dollars, has relieved the stringency caused by the scarcity of metallic money, and that because of that fact the money question as it was presented in the last two presidential campaigns is not now acute or pressing for legislative relief; but it has ajt the same time vindicated the demands of the Democratic party in the past for an increased volume of metallic money, that demand not being for silver as silver, or for gold as gold, but for a sufficient quantity of stand ard money to maintain the level of prices and transact the business of the country.". Speaks of Bad Faith Mr. Bryan presented a suggestion declaring it to be the sense of the Dem ocratic party that the volume of cur rency should not be diminished, but Mr. Hill complained that in .view of the action of the committee in voting down the gold plank, the insertion of the proposed resolution would be a species of bad faith. The committee accepted this view and voted down the resolu tion. The platform being considered complete, was then adopted by a rising vote and in the midst of general ap plause. The members of the general com mittee then withdrew from the room ■after a continuous sitting of sixteen hours. As the members emerged from the chamber they generally expressed themselves as satisfied with the work they had accomplished. O'DOININELL DRAFTED EIGHT-HOUR PLANK Continued From First Page to me, at all. And I leave it to the public to decide as to which tariff plank is the better, that of the com mittee or the one that I gave them to use. The committee's plank doesn't say anything, while mine is a fair, frank statement of belief." The committee's tariff plank said: "We believe in the doctrine of pro tection to American industries as set forth in the national Republican plat form of 1904, and we believe in reci procity as defined and advocated by William McKinley and James G. Blame." Grimshaw on the tariff, said: "We continue our unfaltering and abiding faith in the protective tariff, and are opposed to all efforts to de stroy or weaken its beneficent opera tions. We favor no plan that would interfere with the industries of the United States or that would lessen the legitimate fruits of American labor. We advocate revision of the tariff. Upon some commodities it should be increased and upon other commodi ties it should be diminished. We there fore favor such modifications of tariff schedules as from time to time are re quired by changing conditions, and in sist that such changes shall be made in line with the fundamental principle of protection. All reciprocal agreements of mutual interests with other nations we demand should be first indorsed by the president of the United States." The Minneapolis man objects to the committee getting credit for his hard work-in drawing the platform for his party in Minnesota. Lieut. Alken Is Disposed Of WASHINGTON, p. C, July B.—First Lieut. W.

Various states Intend to present "fa vorite sons" for the nomination, but whether they will be able to gather any strength from other sections of the country appears problematical. The leaders may Tie able to agree upon a candidate before the convention con venes tomorrow, but it now looks as if the ballots must decide who will fill the second place on the national ticket. The Western men have secured a large number of delegates to support former Senator^. George Turner, of Washfngton. During the day Senator Charles S.

RIVER LOOSENS GRIP IN ELOOD DISTRICT Kaw Is Failing and the Worst Is Over West of Topeka KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 8. —To- night the Kaw is falling here and west of Topeka, and it is confidently expect ed that the worst is over. Not for many days, however, will normal con ditions prevail at Armourdale, Argen tine and the low portion of eastern Kansas City, Kan., where hundreds of houses of the working class are un der water and many plants are inun dated. In the lowest portion of Ar mourdale, which is located in the most unfavorable portion of the flood dis trict, the water is from three to six feet deep, while surrounding the Nel son Morris packing houses, northeast of Armourdale, close to the mouth of the Kaw, the water is twelve feet deep. Armourdale is practically abandoned, the street running rivers. Many fam ilies have left their homes and the ag gregate loss will be very heavy. After flooding a portion of the west bottoms on the Missouri side to a depth of four feet, the water in the jobbing districts and in the railroad yards be came stationary today and began to fall when within three blocks of the union depot. Flood conditions in Kansas off the Kaw watershed are still serious, both streams at Abilene, Emporia, Ottawa and Wichita still being high and con tinuing to rise at some points. Water is running several feet deep through Riverside. This district is suf fering quite as much as it did last year, although the volume of water in the Kaw is not nearly so great as dur ing the flood of 1903. In Riverside hun dreds of employes in the packing houses and the Westbrook factories were driven out and tonight only the tops of the houses are visible. Scores,of houses have been washed away. One corner of the big building of the Nelson Morris Packing com pany being erected in Riverside col lapsed today. The unfinished buildings are now surrounded by a lake from six to twelve feet deep. A hundred yards north of the Nelson Morris plant hundreds of men are at work trying to keep a small island intact around the .Riverside electric power house of the Metropolitan Street Railway company. Looking southwest and northwest for a mile can be seen the lowlands of eastern Kansas City, Kan., and to the southwest for miles the stricken Ar mordale starch works, making cne vast lake dotted with the tops of houses, factories and other buildings.

The confusion was so great that not a word could be heard ten feet from the platform The great climax of the eonvention-the nomination of a candidate for president-followed immediately upon the adop tion of the platform. outlet™ 811 Clark Proceeded to that order of business with- LITTLETON NOMINATES PARKER Alabama was called and yielded to New York Mr Little ton's speech immediately pleased his audience and when he concluded pandemonium reigned. Flags waved, banners were held aloft and great as was the crowd, delegates car rying the standards of the Parker states paraded through the convention, pushing, trampling and fighting all who ob structed their progress. The scene was one of tremendous confusion. Then was enacted a scene that recalled an inci dent of the Democratic convention in Chicago which nomi nated W. J. Bryan eight years ago. GIRLS IN WHITE WAVE FLAGS Like Minnie Murray, "the woman in white," who from a gallery over the stage led the cheering for Bryan, two girls in white sprang to the front of the platform and waved flowers and flags. The young women were Misses Adele and Evelyn Heywood, of St. Louis. With renewed outbursts the im mense throng cheered them until a picture of Judge Parker, on a six by nine foot canvas, detracted the thunderous cheer ing of thousands. The cheering continued fully twenty-five minutes. Even then ten minutes elapsed before the chairman dared to call the next state. Arkansas yielded to Tennessee and Senator Carmack took the platform and seconded the nomination of Judge Parker. There was great confusion during the speech. California, a Hearst state, was the next in order. E. M. Delmas, of that state, was recognized, and there was some cheering as he made his way to the platform, but it was not prolonged. The hall was a bedlam when Mr. Delmas con cluded. UPROAR ARISES AMONG HAWKEYES At 12:28 the state of lowa was called. A delegate sprang to his chair and declared a second to Mr. Hearst. But Sam S. Wright, of Tipton, lowa, mounted, his chair and shouted: "On behalf of the unbought and unpurchasable delegates of lowa"—— At this point a rush was made for Wright by some of his colleagues in the delegation. It became evident at once that trouble was on. Mr. Wright sprang- forward on the chairs to get out of the reach of his antagonists. An Arkansas dele egate across the aisle reached out his hand and motioned him in. The convention was thrown into an uproar. One of the Hearst lowa delegates rushed forward to the platform. He was at once followed by-Wright between two men. There was a whispered conference, with Chairman Bailey, and. Wright secured recognition. SAM WRIGHT SECONDS PARKER He thundered forth: "Gentlemen of the convention, lam proud of the fact that the great party to which I belong or dinarily believes in free speech." This struck the convention and Mr. Wright was accorded attention. He said: _y "On behalf of that section of lowa which sends Demo crats to congress—on behalf of lowa Democrats who did not receive their political education from 'Coin's Financial School,' I second the nomination of Judge Parker, of New; York." Mr. Wright at once left the platform amid great applause and confusion. He proceeded down the aisle to his seat. His colleagues, however, refused to allow him to take his seat. He was called many hard names and finally had to be escorted by an officer and "was given a seat by the Georgia delegation. The incident was one of the liveliest of the session. Chairman Weaver, of the lowa delegation, loudly de manded a hearing, but was not recognized. He asserted that his colleagues wished to remove Wright as honorary vice president of the convention from lowa. RECOGNIZES RINEHART Chairman Bailey took a hand then. Rapping his desk, he secured order, and said: "In the confusion the chair was unable to recognize the gentleman who first rose. In order to correct the mistake the chair takes great pleasure in recognizing Mr. Rinehart, of lowa, who desires to second a nomination on the part of the state of lowa." "The gentleman, who just left the platform," said Mr. Rinehart, "has cast an aspersion on the delegation from lowa* I -wish to cast the aspersion back in his teeth." Mr. Rinehart denied that money had been received by any of the delegation from lowa to cause them to cast their vote. Mr. Rinehart made his seconding speech and was listened to with attention, but a yell greeted his last words. FEW MORE ARE SAVED Twenly Additional Norge Pas sengers Reach Land LONDON, July 9.—The latest informa tion points to the conclusion that only one boat load of survivors of the wrecked Danish steamer Norge was picked up yesterday. A dispatch from Leith, Scot land, saying that ninteen survivors had been landed at Thorshavn, Faroe islands, and a dispatch from Glasgow saying that a boat containing eleven passengers, eight sailors and one child had reached the Shetland islands probably referred to the same boat. The facts have iot yet been definitely established, but it would appear that only twenty can be wiped off the list of missing. The second officer of the Norge, who landed at Thorshavn says that on the night of June 30 his boat sighted a large steamer and that he made all the signals in his power, but the boat was not ob served. All hands then lost hope. For five days thereafter storms, fog, sun sKme and calms were the only changes in their monotonous waiting death. Both bread and water ran out. On the morning of July 5 land was sighted, but the ef forts of those In the boat to reach it was unavailing. Later in the day a schooner hove in sight and acknowledged the boat s signals. Finally all the survivors were taken on board and they were landed at Thorshavn on the evening of July 6, when five of them were taken to the hospital. A trawler, which arrived at Grimsby last night, reported seeing an object In the water which proved to be the body -of a middle-aged woman, in whose arms were clasped a dead baby girl. They were drifting supported by a life belt marked '"Norge." The bodies were weighted and then committed to the sea.

CAN'T ENDURE DUMP Eighth Ward Association Will Urge Its Abolishment That the city dump in Minnehaha street, between Lexington and Victoria avenues, is a nuisance and should be abolished was decided last night by the Eighth Ward Improvement association, meeting - at Weiler's hall, Dale street and Uni versity avenue. 'The Eighth ward," protested P. Ij. Schultz, "should not be made a dumping ground for the Seventh ward. Are our lives not as valuable as those of the pen pie in that ward? Are we not human?" The necessity of abolishing the dump, which now reeks with odors from dead cats and dogs and from the most repul • sive garbage, will be urged upon the health department by a committee con sisting of Otto Benz, Nic Gillen and A. J. Ries. The same committee will pro test against the alleged failure of the de partment to clean the alleys and back yards throughout the ward. F. L. McGhee, Thomas Spence and John F. Fisher were named as a per manent committee on schools. They will endeavor to have arrangements made by which children in the .ward may be sent to nearby schools, when such schools exist, rather than to schools much farther away. Another committee, headed by Nic Weyter, was instructed to ask the city engineer to have placed underground the electric feed wires that now traverse St. Albans and other streets. These wires were strung to connect with the Dale street power house of the street railway company. A protest, it was voted, would be sent to the school board against its published intention to expend $200,000 for a new high school. The board will be asked to devote two-thirds of the sum named to the grade schools. "Grade schools," declared Thomas Spence," are much more necessary to the common people than aTe high schools. Not more than 10 per cent of our school chil dren ever get inside a high school." The association will request the char ter commission "to save $50,000 or $60, --000" by combining the city and the gen eral elections. Nicholas Gillen was elected a member of the executive committee of the asso ciation in place of the late John Lorenz. Most Rev. F. M. Redwood at Cathedral Most Rev. F. M.
