When this talented acquisition by T&ramany from the sister city of Phil*. dolpWa appeared upon the piiitform to the right of the cliair tho enthusiasm ot the v&st nudionce knew no boundu. Even tWs out/burnt, liowover, was put in tho shado by the etorm that met his first mention of tlio president's name, and at Ins declaration that New York pledged him lier electoral vote the hull wag in an uproar, delegates, yelling themselves hoavse. There appeared to be no end to tho enthusiasm, the bands nil playing and everyone standing on bis chair. Hi said: "I greet yqj, my countrymen, with fraternal regard. In your presence I i-.w to tho majesty of the people. The sight Itself is inspiring, the thought sublime, ion come from every state and territory, from every nook and corner of our ocean bound, continent-covering country. Yott are about to discharge a more than Im perial duty, with the simplest ceremonials. You,, as tho representatives of the people, are to choose a magistrate with power mightier than- a monarch, yet checked and controlled by the supreme law of the written Constitution. Thus impressed, I asoend the rostrum to name the next president of the United States. New York present* him to the conven tion, and pledget), her electoral vote. Delegations from thirty-eight states and all the territories are here assembled, without caucus or consultation,' ready, simultaneously, to take up the cry and make the vote unanimous. We are here, indeed, not to choose a candidate—only to Bamo the one the people have already uhosexi. He is tho man for the people. His career illustrates tho glory of our in stitutions. Eight years ngo unknown, save in his our locality, he for tho lust, four has stood in the gaze of the world, discharging the most exalted duties that can be confined to a mortal. TO-day determines that, not of his own choice, but by tho mandate of his conn tryman and with the sanction of heaven, ho shall fill the presidency for four years more. He has met and mastered every question, as from youth trained to states manship. The promises of his letter of acceptance and inaugural address have been fulfilled. His fidelity in the past Inspires faith in tho fnture. He Is not a hope he is a realization, scorn ing subterfuge, disdaining re-election by concealing convictions, mindful of his oath of ofllce to defend tho Constitution, he courageously declares to congress, dropping minor matters, that the su premo issue reform, revision, reduction of national taxation that the treasury of the United States, glutte with un S'®S needed gold, oppresses industry, embar rasses business, endangers financial tran quillity and breeds extravagance,central ization and corruption that high taxa tion, vital for the expenditures of unpar alleled war, Is robbery in years of pros perous peace: that the millions that pour into the treasury come from the hard-earned savings of the American people, that in violation of equality of rights the. present tariff lias created a privileged class, who, shaping legislation for personal gain, levy by law contribu tions for necessaries for life from every man, woman and child In the land that to lower the tariff is not free trade. It Is' to re ilucc the unjust profits of monopolists and boss manufacturers and allow con sumers to retain the roBt. The man who asserts that to lower the tariff meant free trade, Insults Intelligence'. We brand him as a falsifier. It is farthest from the thought to Imperil capital or disturb enterprises. Ths-alm is to uphold wages and protect the rights of all. This ad ministration has rescued the public do main from *ould-be barons and corpora tions, faithless to obligations, and re served it for free homes for this and com ln« generations. There is no pilfering there nre uo lobs Tinder this administra tion. 'PubJjlc office 1B A publia trust.* Integrity atands guard at every cost c" pur vast empire. While the president had been the medium through which hAft flowed the undying gratitude of tne re public for her soldiers, he has. not hesi tated to withhold approval from special **95 4&F legislation, II the strictest inquiry re veals a wont of truth and justice. Above all, sectional strife is at an end, and sixty millions of freemen, in the ties of broth erhood, aro prosperous and happy. These are the achievements of this administra tion. Undor the same Illustrious leader we are ready to meet our political op ponent in high and ienorablo debate, and stake onr triumph on tho intelligence, virtue and patriotism of the people, ad hering to the Constitution, ltq every line and letter, evei remembering that'powern not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states are reserved to the states re spectively or to the people.' By the authority of tho Democracy of New York, backed by the Democracy of the Union, give you the name ontwitied with victory. nominate Grover Cleveland of New York." As the nomination was made a large sized portrait of the president dropped in view. Tho delegates appear to be growing more and more enthusiastic. Yells for "Cleveland, Cleveland." "Oh, for Cleveland," aro hoard on all sides. Upon chairs, desks, anything that could give them elevated position the people cheered and cheered, and cheered until it seemed as if tho very walls an'd roof were quivering. It was magnificent. A memorable ex hibition of the inspiration that the name of Grover Cleveland brings to the Democracy. Nothing could have been better than the delivery Ot the speech. Upright as a palmetto tree, with arm outstretched, the words falling sharply dqfjnod and musical, anjl reaching the farthest corner orthe hall, with an occa sional cheer when the orator and his speech achieved a measure of success. The climax was reached when, with arms raised over his head and hands clenched, he concluded: "I nominate Grover Cleveland of New York." The applauso was not a set cheer, but continuous cannonade—a deafening shout, coming from floor, from balconies and from gal lery, and It was renewed with a vigor past imagination. The standards of the southern states were entwined with those of New York. Tho ladles in tho galleries wero caught up the excitement. The decorations were torn down and waived as banners. The cpnvention was.finally called to or derby Chairman Collins after cheering twenty minutes and breaking Mr. Cleve land's Chicago record of eighteen mln ntcB. In the enthusiasm, of the moment the banners of Alabama and Tennessee were carried over into the New York seo- THE DELEGATES BEST? tJP A 8H0UT. tion and the three waved In unison. The actual time at which Cleveland was nom inated by Dougherty was 12:11, and the applause continued until 12:34. The cheoring lasted for twenty-two minutes. When the chairman rapped for order, and It was hardly restored when the applause broke out again and lasted two minutes longer. Judge J. A. Mackenzie of Kentucky seconded the nomination. There was a renewal of ap plause when tho speaker concluded by moving that the rules be suspended and Grover Cleveland be nominated by ac clamation. A New York delegate tore down an eagle from the gallery and held it in air over the heads of his colleagues. A lady in the gallery, falling to secure a flag, tore her bonnet from her head and waved it by the ribbons. THE WORK BEGINS. The Platform Adopted and Candidate! JjJaccd In Nomination. ST. LOUIS, June 7.—The convention was called to order Thursday morning at 10 o'clock and »n invocation wus deliv ered by .Kev. Dr. Brauk of St. Louis. This concluded, the regular business of the convention began. Henry Watter son took the platform to read .the report of the committee on resolutions. It was common knowledge among the delegates that the sub-committee had wrestled for forty-eight hours with the tariff plank, and great Interest centered In the report. It had been rumored that the tariff men had outvoted their free trade col leagues, that a minority report would be presented embracing the views of the president, and that little Fred 'Lehman, the rising young Iowa Democrat, would take the opportunity to lead the general sentiment of the convention against the adoption of the views of Gorman and his -eastern friends, and commit the party to a free trade platform. The first sentences dropped by Mr. Wattcrson dis pelled this rumor, and the delegates sent up a shout at the reading of the pream ble endorsing Cleveland's much dis cussed message. Mr. Gorman took the floor when the reading of the platform was concluded, and when he sat down Mr. Watterson demanded the previous question and the report was unanimously adopted. Mr Gorman began his speech by re ferring to the promises made by the Democrats at the Chicago convention four years ago.' [Her* the speaker was interrupted by a oommotion In the hall. Neatly everybody 'Were on their feet, and for a few minutes there was great dis order. Some OM abouted "Fight," and the people behind began to surge to the front. A man in the gallery cried "Fire.." Ladies in boxes sprang to their feet in alarm. Fortunately, the president retained sufficient presence of mind to. touch an electric bell on his desk, an$ the bands struck up a lively tune. This allayed the exoltement, and in a few moments the convention was again at ease. Then Mr. Scott,- of Pennsylvania, pre sented a resolution endorsing and recom mending the early passage of the Mills bill by congress. This was considered a possible point for discussion and lor.g de bate, but In the Interest of harmony the protectionists swallowed their chagrin ftnd the resolution went through. Hon. F. W. Lehman, of Iowa, recslved an ovation when he mounted the plat form to submlt'a resolution declaring the territories of Dakota, Washington, Mon tana and New Mexico were entitled to admission to the Union as states, and condemning the action of the party in excluding them. This resolution went through with enthusiasm. Governor Abbett wort mounted the steps of the platform and read resolutions of sympathy .with the Irish. Long and continued applause were given the names Of Parnell and Gladstone and. the refer ence to home rule. The resolutions wer$ quickly passed. Mr. Biker of Ohio, from his seat on the floor, read resolution of respect to the memory of ex-Vice Head,. •m, r~~~ ii gay a^er* cfrl Icks. The resolution wus adopted I VPWQ a rising vote. i\ The ohair next announced that there was a slight mistake In the statement that the committee on platform was una nimous In its agreement. Mr. Cooper of New York, he said, objected to part of It. A nlotlon was then made by Governor White of California that roll call shonld proceed for the nomination of a candi date for the vice presidency. It was so ordered, and the clerk lost no time in getting to work. There was no response until California was reachod, when Sen ator Tavpey left his delegation and stepped upon the platform, and moved that Thurman be nominated by accla mation. Mr. Patterson of Colorado took the floor, and referred to Gen. Block's war record, and to his actiAn in the Chicago convention of 1884. He then presented a telegram from the General withdraw ing his name in favor of Tliurman. [Loud applause]. Mr. Piggott of Connecticut followed, seconding the nomination. The Tall Sycamore of the Wabash intro duced the name of Governor Gray oi Indiana in an eloquent speech. When Mr. Yoorhees htul concluded and the ap plause of the Gray men had somewhat subsided, Albert H. Cox of Georgia seconded the nomination of Gray. Evan E. Little made another seconding speech for Gray, wos followed by Nat Dryden of Missouri, who seconded the nomination of Thurman. J. W. Throckmorton of Texas, also Senator Daniels of Virginia, Governor Green of New Jersey, J. W. Dorsey of Nevada, Geo, C. Raines of New York, and representatives of South Caro lina, Ohio and Tennessee followed, sec onding Thurman's nomination. The balloting began with the roll call by the clerk on vote for Thurman, Gray and Black for nominee, for vice presi dent. Thurman received Che nomination on the first ballot. The motion to make the nominati unanimous was carried amid chcers. The roll was then called to nominate members of the national committee, and after the appoitment of the meeting hour for the'national committee the conven tion adjourned sine die. THE SCHEME WORKED. The St. Loulu T'ooplo Hold tlie Delegate* the Third Day. ST. LOUIS, June 7.—After all, the con vention goes into the third day and the St. Lousians are happy. But the dele gates are not, and It is pretty certain that if the rank and flic have anything to say in the matter it will be a long time before another Democratic convention comes here for Its deliberations. It wss only by a streak of luck that the 8t. Lousians'were enabled to keep the dele gates and profit by their presence another day, for whon R, P. Flower rose up with AJ.LEN B. THUBMAN. his inevitable resolution for an adjourn ment he was rebuffed and the face of tho Bonifaces, of saloon men, and general' trades folk, who crowded the space to the right and left of the stage, gave are flection of their own spirits but the wind veered around to an unsuspected quarter, and when it was found that the fight in the committee on resolutions made another day's session a necessity they went away with smiling faces, while the delegations, with visions of still further inroads on their already depleted pocketbooks, were equally blue and de jected. A grand exhibition of fireworks was given last night in Market square, at the Intersection of Twelfth and Olive streets. The vast opening space was crowded and it is estimated that 50,000 people witnessed the pyrotechnlcal dis play, which was regarded by experts as the most successful ever seen in the west. Gen. Beauregard's street cleaning scheme began in New Orleans with 2,000 men and 1,000 teams. New Duty for tho Revenue Service.

There is a crave fear that the present testimony may -undergo the same experience. Chairman Bacon, of the committee on manufactures, has been in Washington little lately, and the other members do not seem tp know anything about the matter. The clerk of the committee says the delay is caused by the fact that most of the type at .he government printing offlee is standing in the tariff speeches,and that the testimony in regard to the Standard oil and. sugar trusts will be printed in about two weeks. There aye agoodmanv people who will wait for the printing with mueh anxiety. Congressional.

I mh wish the women of our country no greater blessing than that their homes and their lives may be as happy, and that their husbands may be as kind, attentive, considerate and af fectionate as mine, Very truly, "FRANCES F. CLEVELAND." No More Telephones in St. Louis. ST. LOUIS, June 7.—St. Louis Is threat ened with a telephone boycott. A few months ago the municipal assembly passed an ordiuanoe making It a misde meanor for any telephone company to charge more than |50 a year for the use of an instrument. As the Bell charges were $100 a year, this meant war right off. The company was made a defend ant under the ordinance last week, and fined $300 for exorbitant charges. The local board of directors of the Bell com pany met and resolved, to mnk« no more contracts in St. Louis until the constitu tionality of the ordinance c6uld bp set tled.

COLUMBUS, O., June 7.—The proceed ings of the Democratic national conven tion of yesterday were conveyed to Judge Thurman about 8 o'clock. He had re ceived no private advices from there, and his first information was. furnished by. a reporter. He was gratified by the en thusiasm manifested by the delegates npon the renomination of President Cleveland, and remarked that it was an indication of tho great regard and esteem the party had for the president. He thought the adjournment was caused by the delay of the committee on resolutions In making its report, and that it was neoessary to give the committee proper time to agree upon a satisfactory plat form. When qusRtioned about his nom ination he refused to express himself. Many of Senator Thurman's friends here think that the adjournment was caused by the opposition to the "Old Roman," desiring more time to fight his nomina tion, while others think it was only done In order to stretch out the proceedings, and to give St. Louis the profits of another day of the convention. John T. LentZj president of the Thurman club, received the following telegram from Wm. D. English, chairman of the Colo rado delegation: "Thurman's nomina tion is absolutely certain." WESTERN PACKING. A Falling OCt LaKt Week as Compared with Year. CINCINNATI, June 7.—The indicated packing In tho west for the week is 20,550 hogs, against 21,500 the preceding week and 23,000 for the corresponding time last year. The total from March 1 is about 2,100,000 hogs, against 2,205,000 a year ago. At Chicago the receipts since March 1 have been 185,000 greater than for the corresponding time last year, and the shipments 145,000 to 150,000 greater than last year. This increase is under stood to be due more to the demand for fresh product than to enlargement in curing operations. The per cent, of hogs received was moderate during the week, closing with a recovery of the decline. Some markets bring a little higher prices than a week ago. The provision trade has been confined to an ordinary course of affairs, with perhaps some improve ment in the call for meats for the south. If the stocks of lard are correctly re ported for this and last month, and the movement for the month correctly stated, they were equivalent to 18,000 tierces ad ded to the lard supply.
