Louisville, May 11. la opening the aational Republican Leagufl convention President Clarkson said: "As we begin here totlay the march to victory in 1S0C we have neither complaints nor explanations for the defeat last year. Indeed, the Re publican party feels better today over the situation than the country itself. The Dem jcratic party that saw in the Republican policies only robbery of the American peo ple have sew been in power two months and the robbery still coes on by Democrat ic consent under IVnniraMc ausphv. Cleveland and hr I ratio secretary of the treasury have u!.-niven the coun try a plain fore;a-r- oi Democratic ideas of finance and busiue.-s. They have al ready friffhteneil the bu-iness world; made a suspension of discount in all the banks of the Country and created uneasiness where prosperity ruled before. The "Intolerance of Morality." "A majority of the voters of the United States are Kspublicans on the real Repub lican issues. Too many voters have been alienated by what might be called the in tolerance of morality. Ijt-t us make the platform so broad that any man, native or foreign born, of any church, ma3- find a R-elcome place in our ranks. Thus we shall ain new votes and elements. We go into this conflict to maintain our old principles with undiminished faith, favoring the rights of men, protection to American tvorkinginen and American interests. The Republican League conies to Kentucky to ieny the charge that there is a revival of sectionalism, and the '-bloody shirt," and to prove that it is false. c come to s:.y that the negro question has merged in the larger one of equal rights of all parties. The Colored Man in Polities. "We come to prove that the Democratic riarty has so far surrendered to the Kepub .ican position on the equal rights of all parties as to admit that the negro has the right to vote or hold fllce if he will act with the Democratic party. When the Democratic party thus accepts the negro is a voter it can no longer challenge the right of the Republican party to do the same. Public opinion as to the negro is rapidly dividing. The Democratic party has ceased the crv that he is An animal and f oot a man. The cry of ignorance no lon ger holds against the negro race alone. The aegro of slavery days is Republican. Position of the "w Necro." "The new negro " like the young white tnan, will make his own terms with the ?xisting poetical parties. The south has already injured itself on this line more tfian it can recover in generations. In teach ing its young people dishonesty in politics it has been logically teaching them dis honesty in all things. Of the millions nf migrants who come to America all seem x know that political liberty in some states of the south is for Democrats only. Dn the laboring men of the northern cities begins to fall the greater injury of the injustice toward the southern negro. This comes in the menace of the degraded and cheap labor into which the Democratic party has forced the black mau. ON THE FINANCIAL. QUESTION. Is Life Worth Living?. That, Depends Upon Your Health.

"As to money and banking the country will depend on the Republican minority In congress for defense from threatened, harm, liimctallism will of course be main tained by the Republicans, and the sagac ity of the Republican minority in con gress will doubtless provide, with the aid jf conservative Democrats, some provision n substitution for the Sherman act which tvill preserve a continued parity in value of coined gold and silver. Xeither the ex treme eastern view that would force this country to a gold basis, nor the view that would make money cheaprr and all other property dearer, will solve the problem Dr save the country." Clarkon then stated as the financial pol icy that laid down in the Minneapolis plat Form, and he suggested some means of ex tending the banking system to small towns, so as to give the farmer the benefit of his credit at as low a rate of interest as tha be sin ess man. The foregoing, however, he laid was given as his personal view, v hich neither the Republican party nor any fac tion thereof was responsible for. Continuing he said: "The League clubs :onld find no more interesting or profitable question to discuss or investigate than the jo-operative system. Factories of all kinds, dairies, farms, railways, and banks are testing it, and find increased profits to themselves as well as larger rewards to their employes. Arbitration and concilia lion should be encouraged. Another theme for discussion is the growing question of Setter roads in America; and still another, the political rights of women." "Let ns make a door so open and so wide that every voter may come in. Let us strike down and repudiate any aristocracy ar prejudice of action such as was shown in the course of a social-political club in Sew York a few weeks ago, in refusing ad mission to a splendid young American be ;ause of race, of religious prejudice. I hope to see this convention, while standing bravely for the spirit of Americanism in all its noble actions and ambitions, dis own that act and denounce it as being un worthy of this country and of the Repub lican party. Make the gate of the Republi can wide enough for Republican victory." THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE. Caucus Programme Carried Oat Manley Elected Secretary. When the epeaker concluded he was re warded with enthusiastic cheers, as he had been when he arose, and as soon as he Could be heard he announced that the con rention was ready for business. The call of the roll showed that thirty-three states were represented. The usual pofamittees were appointed and. the convention ad- ourned lor the aay. At night tnere was a concert at Phoenix hall. Between 10 and 12 a reception was given the Rhode Island delegation in the symposium in the south west corner of the hall. The afternoon was largely devoted by the delegates to discussion of the probable action of the rational committee. There were two or three questions of importance before that body, one being the confirma tion of a chairman and the other the ques tion oi representation in tne next nationa i convention. At the meeting of the com mittee De Young, who is credited with a desire to hold the chairmanship, had the pleasure of presiding until the resolution decided upon at the previous caucus, con firming Carter in the chair and accepting the resignation of Campbell, had been ncted upon. It was adopted, and the na tional committee continued as at present organized. The committee then put a temporary quietus on the proposition to change the basis of representation in the next nation al convention; that proposition was that each state have four delegates-at-large and one for each 7,000 votes cast for the Repub lican presidential candidate. Scott of West Virginia was the mover of the resolution changing the basis, which would largely decrease the representation from the south. Payne of Wisconsin offered an amendment which did not alter the sense of the reso lution and Scott accepted it and a long de bate ensued, Powell Clayton, of Arkansas, and Bradley of Kentucky strongly oppos ing the resolution. The southern members insisted that the proposal was a gross outrage upon the rights of the south and upon those of the party who were fighting its battles in that region and meant the supremacy of the Republicans of the east, north and west at the expense cf their southern brethren. A motion was made to table the resolution, tut finally it was decided to indeliinitely postpone final action in order that the sentiments of representative. Republicans throughout the country might be as certained. Joseph II. Manley, of Maine, was selected as permanent secretary. Mrs. J. Kllen Foster, of Iowa, was permitted to occupy some fifty minutes in telling of the' work tif the Woman's Republican club in the last campaign. Four years from now, she Faid, it would be a permanent factor in the politics of the nation, reaching the votes through homes and firesides. When she concluded it was within an hour of Derby time, and the committee adjourned subject to the call of the chair. The special committee on the place and date for the next meeting of the league has selected Denver. The convention will be called for the second Tuesday in May, 1VJ4. Milwaukee and Omaha wera other contestants for the honor. REPORT FROM THE WHEAT FIELDS. Declines in Condition Compared to Last Month and &Ast Year. Washington, May 11.
