Cleveland and Stevenson of tlieir nomina tion. The vast amphitheater eras decorated in a similar manner to the national conven tion hall, and between 15*_OG0 and 20,100 people assembled.

At 8:20 o'clock the notification committee entered, headed by Perry Belmont, who was arm in arm with Stevenson. As the crowd recog nized the Vice- Presidential candidate the building 6hook with cheers, and a moment later Govern* Flower received a flattering welcome. Suddenly a yell went up. "Here comes Cleveland!" and this was the signal for a demonstration such as Cleveland has not witnessed since 1888. When silence was finally restored. Chairman Wilson of tbe notification committee stepped to the front of tbe stage and facing Mr. Cleveland de livered the notification address. I'bcilrnuii Wile o Speech. Chairman Wilson of West Virginia in the course of his remarks said: Besides btlnjttsg tho notification from the Democratic i a. ty. the eomml tee is also charred with the duty ol presenting it. platform of prin ciples, which in all of it* utterances It merely tne development ot that one creat principle that whatt-ver gov rnnient-* and laws can do for a people must be done for all the people without precedence of secilou or grades of citizenship. The Deniociais plunt ihennelves upon the prin ciple that the necessities of He Government are the beginning and end of Just taxation, and a-_.aii.si the tendency of th" centralization of political tower in the Federal Government, and the c Dtrallzatloo of wealth lv f.ivor of clasiex. -Four years azo," said tt ilson, " In th* midst of a career deseivlog of the highest honors, and which Will receive ihe hlglie«t encomiums that history can aw ad, you weie struck down because, aa a Democrat, you could nmke no terms with those who wished to plunder the people's treasury and perpetuate the passions of civil strife. Your countrymen will right that wrong. They have seen the attempt to turn the gratitude of the nation luto an electioneer!:. fund for a political pally, and your service to that party In conflicts of peace count for more than setvice to he country lv conflicts of war. They have seen eveiy power of the Federal ad ministration used to destroy free elections In the Males. We can a-same you there are uowe.-iiy or despondent Democrats i.i the ranks to-day and with the people's cau?e as cur cause, doubt nut that you will lead in to a glorious triumph." During Chairman Wilson's address Mr*. Cleveland, who had been detained, strove to enter the hall unobserved, but the audience caught sight of her and fairly went wild with enthusiasm. In the very midst of Wilson's speech three cheers were given for Mrs. Cleveland, and when a voice (rem the gallery proposed three cheers for Hut the enthusiasm reached such a height that the chairman was obliged momentarily to ins pend bis remarks. Cleveland's visage dark ened with displeasure, but even his frown was powerless to check the enthusiasm of American chivalry, and it was fully a min ute before the enthusiasm exhausted Itself. At the conclusion of Chairman Wilson's address the secretary read the formal noti fication letter to Mr. Cleveland. The Official Letter. Th<» address says: "Nothing could evince the affection and confidence in which Cleve land is held by the Democratic party more positively than the fact that he was three times made its candidate for the Presi dency. His devotion to the principles of the party of Jefferson, his fidelity to every trust reposed by the people, bis courageous, conservative and exemplary administra tion, and the prosperity of the country thereunder, won for him the respect of every citizen. In the maintenance of the doctrines he so clearly expounded, and which formed the basis of the declaration of principles formulated by the Democratic convention whicli again placed him In nomination, rests the hope of the people for a constitutional government." The addreaa. declares that Cleveland's . nomination "is welcomed by every mau who feels the burden of unjust taxation and the distress of unwarranted legislative interference with the rights of the citizen, — and most heartily congratulates the country upon the opportunity presented by his can didacy for a return to the methods and measures of that party which has and will ever administer the Government for the good of the country and in the interests of the entire people.'* Mr. Cleveland then faced Chairman Wil son and said : Mi. trier' ln Itepljr. Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen: The metsage you deliver from the national Democracy arouses wiihln me emotions which would be well-nigh ovei whelming it I did not recognize here as sembled the lepie-entatlvt ol the gieat paity who intifit share with me Hie responsibility your mission Invites.

We assume a momentous obligation to our country up*ii. lii return for then Hunt and continence we promise them the rectification of their wrongs and the h iter realization of the advauta_.es which are due to Ihem under our tree and he, pk cent Institutions. But if our responsibility is gieat, our puny Is mon*,.. It is strong hi its sympathy with the MOOS of the people; |q Its insistence upon ihe cxc else of governmental pavers strictly within the constitutional per mission that the people have grained, and in the Willingness to risk Its life and hope upon the people's intelligence and patriotism. Never has a gieat party. Intent upon the promotion of ill-lit and justice, had a better incentive for effort than is now meseafed to us. Turning our eyes to the 1 lain people of the hmd, we set them burdened as consumers with a titi iff sjtem that aujasily and relentlessly demands fn in 1 hem 10 the pmchnse of tbe ueces sarle* sad comforts of life, an amount scarcely met by the wages of hmd sad steady toll, while the exactions thus wrung from them build up and lnciease Ibe fortunes of iliute for whose b 1, fit this injustice Is perpetuated. We see the far mci listening to the delusive story that fills bis mlud with virions of hdvantiice, while Ills pocket Is lobbed by the stealthy band of high pioteciion.

We denounce Hie theory Open the highest rounds when we Con lend Unit 111 us present condition Its opeiallon is uu lust, aud that tht enacted iv accoid The Morning Call. ance with It are inequitable and unfair. Ours Is not a destructive party. We are not at enmity with the rlehts of any of our citizens. All are our countrymen. We are not recklessly heed less of any American Interests, nor will we abandon our regard for them; but Invoking the love of fairness and justice whicli belong* to true Ameilcanlsm, and upon which our constitution rests, we Insist that no plan of tariff li dilation shall be tolerated which has tor Its object and purpose a forced contribution from lhe earning* and Income ot the BUSS of our citi zens to swell directly the accumulations of a favored few. Nor will we penult tne pretended solicitude for American labor, or auy other specious pretext of benevolent care for others, to blind the eyes of the people to the saltish schemes of these who seek, through the aid of unequal tariff laws, to gate unearned and un reasonable advantages at the expense of their fellows. Perpetuation of Power. « We have also assumed in our covenant with those whose support we Invite the duties of op posing to death another avowed scheme or our ad (ternaries, which under the guise of protecting suffrage coven but does not conceal a design whereby to perpetuate the power of a party afraid to trust its eootlouanee to the uutram. meled and Intelligent votes of the Ameiic.in pen. pie. We are pledged to resist legislation in tended to complete this scheme because we have not forgotten the saturnalia of Iheft and brutal control which followed another Federal regulation of state suffrage; because we know the managers of a paity which Old nut sciuple to rob the people of a President would nol hesitate to use lie machinery cieaied by such legislation to levlve its corrupt lust tu menialilles for paitisan purposes; because the attempt to enforce such It gtslatioa would re kindle animosities aud lepl.ice pro»|>eious ac tivity with discouragement and dread through oir a large section of ttie country ann would menace lhe rights reseived to tin- States and people which uuOeilie tbe safeguards ot Ameil can liberty. "True to Its history and creed," said Mr. Clevelaud, "the Democratic party will respond tothe Wants ot tlie people within safe lines aud guided by enlightened statesmanship. To 11, troubled and Impatient art' lilu our membership we commend au unswerving allegiance to tho pany. Defeat ia the pending ctmiuigu, fol lowed by a consummation of the legislative schemes tliHt our opponents contemplate, and accDtnpauled by such other Incldeuts of their success ms might moie firmly fix lheir power, woeid present a most discouraging outlook for future Democratic kupremacy and for lbs ac complishment of the objects we have at heart. Every sincere Democrat must believe thai the luternta of his country are deeply involved In the victory of our party. Suc cess cau only be achieved by * systematic and lutelll^eut effort on the put of all. Let us tell the people plainly and honestly what we believe and how we propose to serve the interests of the entire country, and ihen let us, after the maimer of true Democracy, rely upon the thou^hifuiuess of our ellow-couutiyuien." White Talks to Stevenson. Immediately after Cleveland had resumed bis scat Stephen 11. White of California rose and, facing Adlai K. Stevenson of Illinois, addressed him briefly upon his nomination as the Vice-Presidential can didate. He said in pari : 1 Us gieat organization In whose battles for the public welfaie you have boiue so conspicuous a ic.it 1; is mauUested its approval ot Hie en lleliteoed and progressive sOmtutstratloD with wliich you w* re tor lour yeara prominently luruufi. ii. That petlod has been compared by lie people with the record ol the Presidential Unit now approaching Us completion. To tM contrast lbs Democracy tuins proudly an.l with couhdeuee. lime has furuttbed ample oppor tunity to study the pending questions of Im portance, and the general sentiment protests ■gainst an extravagant ana partial tariff; against Federal control ot elections; demand-* govern mental reform and insures a Democratic vic tory. The Official Notification. The secretary then read the following letter of the committee notifying Stevenson of his nomination. It says, in part: We sic able to assuie you ihat this honor has been conferred because the Democratic party has recognized In you a leader whose every public act has lengthened lhe patty in the respect of the people.

When Stevenson arose he was greeted with prolonged applause and when silence was restored he spoke substantially as fol lows : Distrusting my capacity to fully meet the expectations cf those who have factored roe by tle'i confidence, 1 accept the nomination *o generously tend-red.

AT WORK IN ALL THE MINES. Trouble in lhe (tour d'Alenes Is Prac tically at an End. DAJGER TO THE mBND MIXERS. Somdliiiig Must Br Done With Tium at Once Lest Disease Break Out in the Prison Tens. • Exaggerated Stories Sent Out. Special to TnE Mobnino Call. Wallace. Idaho, July 20.— Work has bean resumed at .ill tho mines in the Ccetir d'Alenes. Wages have been iixfd at S3 50 per day for skilled miners and S3 per day for shovclcrs, with the right to board and lodge where they please. The presence of the troops is a guarantee that the men can work for whom they please without becom ing members of any organization. The actions of the Homestead miners, whose deeds were Commented upon here In violent anarchistic language by such men as Seven, Dallas, Poynton and O'Brien, stirred up the evil passions of the ignorant miners, whom they ruled with a rod of iron, and the great trouble here was the result. On the 13th of July the strike assumed its most dangerous phase, and the mine owners were Virtually held prisoners. Three hundred scabs were in the hands of m— .i capabe of shooting them to de ith at the command of their leaders. Colonel Carliu's delay at Cataldo until theso scabs could be scut out of the country, it is gen erally believed, saved many lives as well as much valuable property. Every threat mado by tie strikers on that day would assuredly have heen carried out had the troops advanced. Tho miners considered their fi^ht won when the scabs left, never dreaming that they would return within two days, and before they could recover from the surprise occasioned by this quick return to the old conditions Deputy Mar shals weie pointing them out to soldier*?, who arrested '.hem. Since the IS inst. there has been no danger whatever, ann the sensational re ports sent out from here were in most cases gross exaggerations. Kreeu, I) lias and Poynton, who were trusted leaders under O'Brien, have escaped to Montana, but requisition papers will ho forwarded to Governor Toole and their ar rest wiii probably follow. All the other prominent leaders are in custody. The in dications now point to a general exodus to Montana of such union miners as have not yet been arrested. Although the miners' union in the C(pur d'Alenrs is completely broken up and the mine-owners tree of its halter. it will re quire the presence of the Federal troops for fix months or more to insure iho workmen here immunity from attack. One hundred and eleven nun have been arrests at Wardner and there are 190 confined at Wal lace. Marshal Pinkham has been looking over the prisouers and is busy getting out Indict ments against the principal ones. They will all be taken to BoiM in a few days to answer charges of contempt of court, and wile then be returned here to stand trial on several Indictments. Something will have to be done with ihem soon, as the prison pens are terribly crowded and sickness will surely result from the unsanitary conditions existlug at present. The provisions shipped in hero forthe Miners' Union are Md ever to a commit too of women xppointed by the miners' wives, and by then; are distributed to the needy. . A HM.IMI. 1 lUb.

The policy of the Federal officials has, however, been changed, and a uew proced ure will be luaugurated. The contempt proceedings are in the United States Circuit Court. Judge Realty has no authority to call a special term of that court and the cases would have to be delayed until a term could he authorized by Jus, Field. The men after having been brought to Boise would have to be taken to Moscow for hear ing, making a tedious and expensive pro ceeding. For this reason -It has been de rided to proceed againat the offenders in the District Court, charging them with the crime of conspiracy in having conspired to inter fere with the admiuisttation of justice. Judge Beatty can call a special term of this c- urt whou and where he will, and he Will be asked to call such a term at Cocur d'Alenc City. District Attorney Wood will leave for the north to-morrow in further ance of this plan.

HOW THE TORIES WILL WORRY HE The Struggle in Midlothian Told Upon Him, and Bis Anxiety Has Increased Since the Result of the Elections Was Announced. Special to The Morning Cali* New York. July 20.— Here is what a member of Parliament, closely associated with Gladstone, said to-day to the World's correspondent: "Gladstone's health is caus ing uneasiness to his friends. His exertion In the Midlothian campaign has told severely on him, and the result of the elections leav ing him with so small a majority opens a vista to trouble, which has worried him intensely. He bas nothing organi cally wrong, but he has began to show the effects of his extreme age In a feebleness entirely new to him. When staying at Dalmauy with Lord Rosenberg during the election he repeat edly fell sound asleep during dinner on two accasions after the first course and was removed to his bedroom in his elixir asleep and put to bed. This tendency to drowsi ness has been noticed lately in the House of Commons, but it has latterly increased rapidly. The nervous tension he has under gone has also aggravated ereatly the ner vousness natural to a man of his advanced age. It was to brace his nerves that he wis hurried to the Highlands alter the election. What, between the bad wen ther and the lack of recuperative power, the benefit to be derived from a change has been so partial that his stay there baa beeu prolonged a week. His absence is giving scope for intrigues in the party which are certain to be 11 fresh source of difficulty later on. The fear of Gladstone's family la that the labor and annoyance inseparable from carrying on the Government with a small and uiixed majority must tell with disastrous effect upon him b.f' re many months. The Tories know this »nd their plan is to worry him, have late sittings and oppose legislation in every possible way." CLOSING THE RANKS. Parnellites Auxloui to Make Term* With 1 li*p 1 r Foet.
