Tho gallarii K were crowded with a throng which entered heartily into the spirit of the proceed ings and throughout the night ap plauded vigorously whatever met their approval. A few minutes after eight the delegates trooped into the hall, New York heading the column; the delegates from the Empire Slate bore a white banner hearing (lie words "In dependence Party," between the words being an evenly balanced scale signifying exact justice to all. Cheered Each Other. Olher delegations carried the na tlonal colors and they waved them back and forth in greeting as they found their allotted positions in the ball.

The dem onstration lasted about fifteen min utes anil continued for some time after the delegates were in their seats. Then entrance of George W. McCas kerin, whom the Illinois delegates are supporting for the gubernatorial nomi nation, was a signal for cheers," for the next governor of Illinois." This outburst, had scarcely subsided when the arrival of Hearst started a delirious demonstration. Demonstration Tor Hearst The hall was in an uproar as he mounted the steps leading to the plat form. He took no notice of the dem onstration by after remaining on the rostrum about three minutes In consul tation, with Ihe secretary of the con vention, descended in to the body of the hall, taking a seat with the Nov; York delegation. His action was a signal for renewed cheering, and the delegates shouting "Hearst! Hearst!" immediately started on a parade around the hall, chanting continuously the name of the New York editor. The parade continued several minutes be fore quiet was ret sored. ConventionOpcns. Milton W. Howard, of Alabama took the gavel and introduced f'has. A. Walsh, of Iowa, secretary of the provisional national committee, who read the call for the convention. Fath er O'Callahan. of Chicago, delivered the invocation. Howard then announced the namos of the temporary officers of the con vention. His mention of the name of Hearst was received with a thrust of applause and Hearst, when he mount eil the rostrum, was given an uproar ine welcome. When quiet was re stored he began his address as tem porary chairman of the convention, speaking as follows: Hearst's Speech. "This is the first national conven tion of the Independence Party, and whether it shall prove a historical tvent cr merely a passing political incident depends upon the wisdom and patriotism with which we shall delib erate and act. I believe we will do a service to our fellow citizens second only to the inestimable Fervioe rend ered by the founders cf this govern ment, if we shall found a party which will remain unfailingly faithful to the cause of the plain people, as to the principles of the declaration of inde pendence, and to tho fundamental Am erican Ideas of liberty, equality, and opportunity for. all. New Party Needed. "I believe that if any party is neces sary in this country to preserve the government, as our fore fathers fram ed II, a new party Is necessary; if any party is necessary to promote pro gress and prosperity, to encourage the honest business man, and protect the honest, working man, a new party is necessary; if any party is necessary to represent the typical citizens, to constitute the people In their struggles with tyrannical monopolies which con stitute trusts, a new party is neces sary. Scores Other Parties. "The Republican party," he said, "is the avowed hand maiden of the trusts. It scorns those who would rescue it repudiates those who would reform it, and giciies brazenly in its profitable infamy. "The Democratic party is merely en vious of its sordid sister's ill-gotten finery. It upbraids her at one (dec tlon and Imitates her at the next. "The Republican leaders are the political attorneys of the trusts; the representatives in public, life of those giant corporations which have stipe" ceded the people in this republic as the service of power and the seat of authority. A "Falstaffs" Army. "The Ieniocratic vanguard is a 'Fal staff's' army. H is led by a knight errant in a motley array of modified professions and compromised prin ciples, of altered opinions and re tracted statements." Hearst here mentioned Sullivan, Hopkins. Murphy, Taggart, McClellan, Ryan. eBlmont. Bailey and Williams, describing them as offirers of the I Democrntis vanguard, and designating them in uncomplimentary terms. "Assuming that Bryan himself is all his most ardent admirers claim him to be, still a man is known by the com pany he keeps, and no decent Demo crats can tolerate his companions. Boodlers and Bravos. "No honest citizen can let, down the bars of office to such an Ali Baba's band of boodlers and bravos. No pru dent citizen will support a combina tion to which Taggart supplies a can didate, and a Parker platform for which Ryan will pay the freight, and the people pay the penalty." He urged his party to take a liberal stand toward legitimate business en terprises, but to distinguish between legislative business concern duct of a party whos" role purpose H to stand pat and whose sole desire I-; to stay cut. The Democratic platfrom, he admit t'd c Mitains some good and original things, but the original things are no good and the good things are not orig inal. It. was built by political Jack daws who feathered their nests with the plumes of others without under standing of their significance or inten tion as to their performance, "II is Ihe habitation of a hermit crab which has no shell of its own and in- vides the first convenient one without regard to property or propriety. Bryan Killed Fatted Calf. "lis platform, too, is one of recou ( illation and retraction, atonement anr apology, harmony and hypocrisy, for in compliance with a former compact. Parker has pronounced peace, Bill Bailey has poured Standard Oil upon the troubled waters and Bryan has killed, not, only the fatted calf, but the gcose that laid the golden egg.
