A Great Convention at Des
CHAIRMAN WHITE'S ADDRESS.

The Ohio Republican Ticket
Des Moines, Jane 23. A thousand
delegates were present when Chair
man ueaiey, ei tort Voage, called
me lowa Gemocratic state conven
uon xo traer. au counties were
represented. The announcement
that ex-Congressman Fred E. White,
of Kenkuk county, a leading candi
date for governor, would preside as
temporary chalrsaaa, was received
with cheers, whicY increased when a
large picture of William J. Bryan
was unfurled at the rear of the
stage. Three eheers were given for
Bryan, when White made his address.
Hun. Frederick D. White, tempor
ary chairman, in assuming his du
KepubL'caniam is founded upon
the distinct idea o! a strong central
government the government deriv
ing its powers, not la all cases from
the conaent of the governed, but a
government possessing inherent
power; power within and of itself;
power to do what it ehooses, and
whatever it pleases to do to be in all
cases bicdin upon the people.
Democracy is founded upon the dis
tinct Ilea that governments are or
ganised among men for certain well
defined purposes, and' for no other
purposes; that inherently govern
ments possess no power whatever;
that all power to Le exercised mast
first be delegated by the people. The
logical result of democratie faith is
enlarged HUrty. all the liberty pos
sible. The logical result of the
theory of inherent power Is liberty
diminished liberty destroyed.
"Jcfforsonianitm constitutes the
crowning glory of all our institu
tions, the oiily barrier cumulative
reason has betn enabled to ereet to
protect a free people against the ap
proaches of despotism. Let go of it
and the inevitable will be a radical
change in the entire structure of the
government." Ha spoke of the pres
ent nnhsppy conditions in the coun
try, and deplored the inexplicable
indifference cf the multitude who
are the viotims of the situation. The
interesting question then is, is it
possible to roue the masses to a real
sense of tho danger hanging over
them bfforo tbis danger culminates
in a calamity and overwhelms them?
There are, indeed, at the present
time, many indications of a popular
awakening, and the inevitable out
come will be a readjustment of con
ditions where the Jeffersonlan doc
trine of the political equality of man
will be assigned its rightful place,
and the administration of justice be
the moving, governing principle. He
spoke of the growing greed ot the
multimillionaires to possess all there
is in the country, even to the peo
ple themselves, and to dictate their
financial system, the purpose being
to utterly destroy tho use of silver as
primary money and make it arti
ficially scarce, so as to mark the
price ot labor and us preduets down,
aind to legislate the value of gold up.
"But William J. Bryan is navigat
ing the old demooratio ship upon the
blue waters, not according to the
rules formulated in Wall street, "but
with the aid of an old fashioned Jef
f ersonian compass."
The announcement of committees
selected at the morning caucuses
fallowed. A committee on resolu
tlons was selected, a majority of
whom favor the incorporation of
a plank favoring the Temple amend
ment, prohibiting railroad companies
from avoiding oy eomract uaouuj
for damages to employes.
White's speech was well received,
especially tue refeienoes to socialism
and tne policy of tne repuoncau
parly which favored the centralisa
tion of government. Every mention
of Bryan's name brought forth tr.
Tbe nomination of White far gov
er nor seems certain. Hit nni r.v

Collate Boat Baoaa.
Poughkeepsie. June 23. The open
ing day of - the college boat races
was all that could be desired. No
auch crowd ever before gathered in
America to witness a freshman race
as assembled along the Hudson. The
starting nour was set between 6 and
6 o'clock, according to the condition
of the wind and water. There was not
much betting about the hotel corri
dors. It was noticeable, however.
that of the "talkers." Cornell's de
fenders outnumbered those ot Yale
and Harvard three to 1. Thia was
obviously because of the talk of sick
ness among the Yale youngsters
wnion obtained in some quarters to
day and because of the strong con
victions as to the prowesa left by
Cornell in her last year's walk over.

BR VAX AT THE QUEEN CITT.
He Replies ta the Allegations of Popnllst
Bateman, of Maine.
Cincinnati, June 23. The Bimetallic
League met yesterday morning and or
ganized temporarily. Then it went on an
outing to Coney Island and upon Its
return held a meeting at Pike's Opera
House at night, the leading feature of
which was the ovation to Hon. William
J. Bryan. Bryan arrived late in the
afternoon and wKh his friend, Horace
B. Dunbar, dined at the residence of
John K. McLean, where he mt a com
pany of half a dozen. People crowded
the streets around the residence and
compelled Bryan as he went to his car
riage to go through a brief season of
handshaking. Mr. Bryan appeared at
the Pike after addresses had been made
by General E. B. Flnley and Hon. H.
F. Bartine. of Nevada. His raception
was ane long protracted deafening roar
of enthusiasm. Bryan said he was not
there to speak, but to exhort for organisation.
When asked by an Enqurier reporter
concerning the charges made by Profes
sor Bateman. the People's party candi
date for governor of Maine last year,
Bryan said: "No conditions were at
tached to the money turned over to Sen.
ator Allen, except that It should be used
according to Mr. Allen's Judgment for
the cause of bimetallism. All donations
were made for that purpose. The mon
ey was divided between Democrats,
Populists and silver Republicans in
proportion to the vote cast. To have
Ignored the Populists in the distribu
tion would have been an Inexcusable
slight. The subject of fusion was not
discussed directly or indirectly. Mr.
Batman. I presume, has reference to
the letter as reproduced -in my book. I
took It from the newspapers. IS Pro
fessor Bateman proves to me that It
waa a mistake I shall make the change
In subsequent editions.'
