Cmciao , III. , Juno 21. The story from tbo insldo of the * remarkable fight tn tbo democratic platform committee on silver was told last night by Thomas M. Patterson of Denver , who was one ot the chief partici pants in the struggle. Mr. Puttorsoii sold : "Tho controversy over the coinage plank nroso almost ai soon as that upon the tariff was disposed of. The silver resolution that liad boon prepared nnd offered by Mr. Jones wns the ono around which the controversy for a long time centered. That plunk de clared In favor of the free comago of gold nnd silver nt an established ratio , tbo metal in both dollars to bo of tbo same Intrinsic valuo. "Discussion , " said Mr. Patterson , "nroso as to the use of some words in it , and 11 com menced to develop that the ono obcoxlous word In Iho resolution was the word 'frco.1 For a long tlmo discussion occurred in which It was urged on the oao sldo that Ibo word 'frco' should bo eliminated and on the olhcr that it should not. bonatnrs Vitas , Mcl'tier son and ex-Senator Bayard claimed that the word 'free' added nothing to the force of Ibo resolution , which they maintained did * declare - clare for frco bimetallic coluage. It wns nskcd If without tbo word 'free' it was a free coinage plnnk why did they object to tne use of tbo wcrd. Why not say to the people of tbo United Stutcs in unmistakable language precisely what the party meant upou that bubjecll To this it was replied that the word free1 was a catch word , which as applied to coinage was offensive to thousands In tbo eastern and northwestern states , and that it would lose the parly voles which would bo necessary lo accomplish Ibe end desired V/hen this point was made it was proposed to strlko out Iho obnoxious word und use ibo word * , 'for Ibo holders , ' In Its stead , and that part of the resolution un Jcr discussion would * read : " 'Wo hold that Iho use of bolh gold and f liver ns ibo standard money of the country nnd Ibe coinage ot bolh gold and silver tor tha holders ibcrcof without discrimination ngalnst cither metal , but tbo charge for coinage. ' "It was pointed out that the test of frco coinage , nttor all , wns the comago of gold anil silver for the holders of the bullion , nnd not by tbo government of bullion first pur chased by it for the purpose. " That waa the way in which gold was coined and In which silver was coined until Us demonetization in lbT3. and that if they would use either the word 'treo' or instead iho words 'tor the holders , ' It would , so far as the platform wits concerned , satisfy Iho tree silver men. The use of Die words suggoMod instead of free' was opposed with equal determination by the opponents of what wo atKcd. "Senator MuPhcrson U frank enough to ndmlt that iho resolution with the word free' contained in it , or the words proposed to bo substituted , did not mean the same thing as without them. I laid our opponents that since it was evident that Mr. Cleveland would bo nominated und probably elected , the free coinage men , bellevlug that Cleveland - land will veto any frco coinage measure , wauled 'an uncnor cast to windward , ' so that lit the expiration of his term wo could sllll maintain that the democratic parlv was pledged lo free bimetallic coinage , nnd wo could demand that tb.o pledge inlghl bo ful filled by his successor.Vo pointed oul Ibat the resolution , a : wo were willing to accept U , conceded the most oxacllne dcmauds for tbo opponents of Ircu coinage as they were made public. Wo asked Idem , If they wcro blmolallists , bow they could object to the free coinage of silver dollars of the sumo In trinsic value with gold ; und If they did no'l object why thny should oppose a plain declaration to that effect. "Tho controversy made It very clear that our opponents would concede almost any thing but a clear declaration for frco coinage or tbn use of IBo languugo lhat necessarily meant the same thing. They wcro told lhat It demonstrated what democratic free coinage - ago men feared that the real fundamental difference between them and their opponents , to-called bimetallism , was that Iho frco coinage - ago men demanded a double , or cold and sil ver , standard of value , whiio their opponents wcro at heart single gold standard men , will ing to appear under the garb of bircctall'sls ' until iho cloak might bo thrown off and the single standard bo adopted. Wo pointed out to them that England had bimetallism in that It had both gold and silver ns rjoncy ; that wo have bimetallism in the Untied States today because wo have gold and silver dollars colnod by tbo government , both being held to bo tbo standard dollars , but that incro was frco coinage of gold whllo there was no frco coiuago of silver. "That was where tbo subcommittee stalled , wo demanding clear recognition aud they denying ll. Senators Vilas and Mc- Pberson , with cx-Sonutor Bayard , wcro the active opponents of the requests of the free coinage men. Senator Daniel and I wcro nc- live frco coiuago men. Mr. Jones , being chairman of tbo subcommittee , remained neutral , while Mr. Atkins of Tennessee , former commissioner of Indian affairs under Mr. Cleveland , sought to act as peacemaker in argument siding with us , out casting bis votns with tbo other * in behalf , as bo ex pressed It , of harmony In tno democratic parly. The other members of the subcom mittee as n rule were patient listeners. Wo must have devoted about three hours of tlmo nud long after inldiitgbt orer that little Inno cent word 'free,1 but our opponents doicated us nud held it in captivity. Tno subcommittee-was out ULtil 5 a. m. Tbo only planks that consumed any tlmo wcro tnritl and silver. Tba subcommittee reported at il o'clock of tbo second day and everything wont along smoothly before it until the silver plank was reached , when tbo contest was resumed , Tba merits of tbo question wcro not gene Into thon. Tbo con troversy here consisted of pathetic and earnest nppouls for harmony In the partv by keeping out tbo obnoxious words , and equally earnest nppoali on our part for the clear rec- ounltion of the principle of free coinage. Hut wo were beaten by a vote of 18 agalust 2b or 2tl nooi. "A few of us , " added Mr. Patterson in conclusion , "although wo knew it was a hope less undertaking , felt ttiat wo ohould carry the tight to Its logical conclusion , which was on tbo lloor of tbo convention , ThU wo did vlib tbo result known to tbo public.

Too question of protection Inci dental or direct to American Industries is also a question of degree , for both partie * , bavo ai leaal until iho recent democratic convention admitted that It should exist and In legislation bavo acted along tbcso lines. But the question of money is before tariff. It is of higher Importance , nnd lies nt the very foundation of tbo whole problem ol the country's prosperltv. If money Is sound nnd abundant , bminc < s is active , employ ment plenty , enterprise accelerated and fair returns received for all of labor's products. If it Is scarce , however sound , the opposite conditions exist , and depression and gloom appear on ovcrv hand. "Tho monov'of the world Is the coin metal nnd tbo bullion , when frco uoluago ot it exists. Paper money , whether Issued by the state or corporations , and all other forms of credit must bo bused upon coin money. This ts the onlv monev of ultlmnlo redemp tion. All sound credit money Is founded upon coin tnonoy confidence confidence that It will when issued bo redeemed in coin wilt carrv safely on n certain amount of credit money. To reduce the coin money of tbe world by legislation or annihilation , it that wcro possible , must reduce the sound credit money In a corresponding degree and ni It is so reduced the evil effects of n scarcity of money are immediately experi enced , "Tho power of concentrated millions has within a comparatively short tlmo boon In voked to destroy one-half the coin money of the world. England , Germanv nnd other European nations with the United States have decreed by law that silver shall no lonror ba redemption money. Itself Is to bo rodcemcd In gold. It Is placed upon a par with credit tnoncv. The one-half of the coin rEo.noy has uot only been made credit money , but It has been added to tbo already existing mountain ot credit money to bebornoupby Iho greatly depleted baso. This has necessarily lessened values. Property and labor ot nil kino's , except wuero exceptional conditions exist , have fallen and the demand for them has become slugcNh. Owners of property dally erow poorer , Iho requital of labor is diminishing nnd financial distress Is apparent verywnero. Because one-half of the world's redemption inonoy has been deprived of lhat essential quality to its value , alt moncv has been made dearer , that Is , the owners of it will get much raoro labor in oxchanco for It than before the change occurred and Iho man wilh labor for biro nnd Ibe owner of properly for sale must take correspondingly less for Ihem. This is tbo result of silver's demonetization every where. These Ireraendous evils are enough to cnguco the best efforts ot mankind lo abolish Ibom. But there are other evils local to this country In which silver Is mined that add conspicuously lo the bur dens Its people must bear. "Colorado is a fair Illustration ot a coun try suffering under these additional evils. The lo-.v price 10 which jilver has been re duced is closing mines and lessening Iho miners' wnires. "Sinco 1ST3 , through demonetization , Colo- ado's people have been deprived of SliiV 000,000-lost , in the fall of silver from ? l.23 > er ounce lo S9 cenls. This year alone lls oss from Ibis causa will not bo less than 10,000,000.

"Tbo presidency Is the pivot upoa wbich ho success or defeat of the cause must turn.

Mr. Pirtlo stntod Ibat ho had received no such telegram. Ho bad received several letters and tele grams from Editor Vincent of tbo Noncom- Tormist. all staling Ibnt Ibo mailer was being urged upon Juogo Grcsbam aud that they hoped that ho would llnallv consent ; but there was nothing In the telegram received yesterday to warrant tbo assertion mat Judge Grcsbnm bad consented. Mr. Pirtlo stales Ibat as far as his knowlcdco cocs , no definite understanding has been reached. Tbo mon thai can ba obtained from Judge Gresham Is un expression of bis sympathy wllh manv of the principles advocated by tbe people's Independent parly and tbo further statement ttiat ho is In no position to undertake the financial burden that would bo imposed upon him If he accepted tbo nomination. Other prominent IndopcndenU of Lincoln who bavo been active in their efforts to induce Judge Gresham to accept a nomination , say that iho judge's .opposition lo Ihe BUblre.isury schema has heretofore blocked all efforts to roach nn agreement. Mr. J. V.

FULL PARTICULARS OF THE EXECUTION The Condemned Mnu ConfrMCil Thilt Ho Killed Carter , but Claimed He Wits Craxca by Drink nt the Time Thu Crime. When tbo fires of llfo have wollnleh burned tbo mortal frame away and the spirit , weary of its earthly house , begins to yearn for realms Immortal , then it may bean easy thing to lie down among the wlthoted loaves and close the cyos in death. But how bitter It must bo to die whnn every fiber ot the being , every Impulse ot the heart. Is In love with life. While tbo eyes arc sparkling with the vigor ot youth and tbo rich , red blood ot health Is leaping through the system , what a terrible tragedy is death. To bo hurled into the awful blackness of nn unknown world as punishment for .viola tion of the laws of human lifo must bo h con templation almost sufficient to unseat the firmest reason and shako tbo very soul wltn speechless dread. Such was thp unhappy condition of Clinton E. Dlxon , xvho was baugod yesterday at the Douglas county Jail for the murder of Cor poral Johu R. Carter at fort NIobrara on the thirtieth day of September last. 1'rcimrlng for Death. Dlxon arose at the usual hour and ate a bcurty breakfast , alter which bo en tered Into a long consullatlon with Father Rlggo , his spiritual adviser. The doomed man said bo was ready to go. Ho bad made tm peace with God and could swing off Into eternity without a shudder. Ho wrote a long letter to hU mother at Hanover , Pa. , in which ho said ho was not afraid to dto. Ha said : "Dear mother , this tlrrfo tomorrow I witt b : pray ing for you in heaven. " Dlxon spoka in the most complimentary language of tbo kind treatment be bad received at the bands of Sheriff Bennett and wife and Jailor Joe Miller and Father Rlggo. In closing be said : "Mother , you ought to feel proud that you have a boy who bns so many kind friends in this terrible hour. " Ho then bid her a last good by uud said bo hoped to meet her in bcavcn. During the forenoon Dixon confessed to Father Rlcgo that ho killed Corporal Carter , out said be was Intoxlcalod at tbo time. Shortly after 10 o'clock Marshal Brad D. Slaughter and Deputies Jackson , Harris , Hill , Hcpfinger and Hastings , and Sheriffs Melick of Lancaster , Llddard of Sarpy and Mawhlnnoy of Nance , accompanied by Captain Cormark and two sergeants , arid several others who had been invited to witness the execu tion were admitted by Jailer Miller. They went at once to the stockade at the south west side of the jail to inspect Iho gallows and trap. Tne flight of steps that led up lo tbo platform of tbo gallows bean at tbn foot of the stops that lead out of the west door of tbo Jail. As a mere matter of chance there were exactly thirteen steps from tbo brick to the gallows platform and tbo fatal trap. Tbo gallows stood about fifteen feet from the door of the Jail and the platform was about ten foot from the ground. Unique Triip Arrnnpcmrnt. Tbo arrangement by which tba trap was given the drop was unique. Tbo bolt wbich held tbo trap m"place"rccled'on u small roller connected with tbroo electric wires leading from a battery at ono sldo of tbo callows. By touching any ono of tbo buttons attached to these throe wires the small roller sustaining tbo bolt could bo displaced and down wont Ibo trap. This was a device invented by Marshal Slaughter so that bo m'gtat have two of his deputies touch Iho buttons at the same instant as ba did and nobody could over know who turned on tbo death-dealing current. By 10:4 ? about fifty spectators bad gath ered In the stockade and Deputies Hill and JacUson were instructed to tie the ropn to the beam. Tbo ribbon of bomp came all the way from KcntucKy and was lifteen feet Ion ? . At five minutes before It o'clock ovary- thing was pronounced in readiness and Mar shal Slaughter , Jailer Miller , Sheriff Ben nett , some of the deputies and the reporters passed up to Dixon's celL Iteud the Death Sentence. Father Rlgge was conversing wltn Dlxon. and when Jailer Miller threw back the boll and opened the cell door Iho doomed mao slopped oul lljbtiy inlo Ibo gloomy ball that surrounds the cells , looking the plclure of heallh and manly vigor. Ho was dressed in a block culawav suit with a turndown collar and a cream-colored tie. Ho were a rosary acout bis nock. "Good morning , Dixon , " said the marshal , and Dixon answered pleasantly. Father Riggo whispered something hurriedly to Dixon and bo nodded slightly and loolied upon nis spiritual advisor wiln an expression of gratitude. Marshal Slatgbler then read the sentence of tbo court to Dixon who stood with down cast eyes , his bands clasped bcforo him and occasionally biting bli rod lips. Ho looked moro like n bride groom than a condemned criminal. His round , boyish face- was smoothly shaven and there wasnotlboiraco of fear in his counten ance. Ho occasionally danced out of the window as the reading proceeded , but his self-possession was simply marvelous. When the marshal bad finished read ing the sentence of Iho court and iho two respites bo said : "Dixon , are you prepared - pared to go I" "Yes , sir , " was tbo repty. "Is tbero anything you would llko to say bo fore wo go down I" "No , sir , " said Dixon , and Just then ho manifested the first sign ot nervousness. "Take a drink ot this , Dixon , " said Jailer Miller , cs no banded Ibo condemned mau u llasit of whisky. Dlxon look a few swal lows of Ibo liquid and was about to hand the iUstc back when the Jailor salcl , "Take some more.

Ha coughed and throw his head forward , pulling out nts handkerchief , "Pretty strong , " remarked Dopulv Hast- luirs. luirs.Dixon Dixon smllodand blushed llko uboy of 10. "Well , I guess wo uro all ready , " said tbo marshal and tbo procos- flon started for tbo ntockado below. Father Rlgge walked by Dixon's Mdo all the way. The prisoners iu the corri dors and cells below craned their nocki. as tbo gloomy procession filed down tbo stairs and through tno balls to the west door of ibe Jail whore Dlxon caught tbo first view of Iho scauoid , 110 bora uimsoit without tbo slightest indication of a tremor or u fear of tbo terrible fate staring him In the face.

The only sound heard was a sort of snap ping of tbo TO pa ns It tlgnlcnod around thn beam above , and tome who siood very near to the gallows tbnueht they heard a nolso resembling the breaking of his neck. It was Just about tbo ooatost execution on record.

Story"of'sIJtxon < Crime. The history of the case Is brief. Corporal John R. Carter of Troop F , Sixth cavalry , and Trumpeter Clinton E. Dixon were tha principals In tbo tragedy. Corporal Carter had been instructed by tbo commanding oQlcer of Fort Nlobraru to drive away two negro prostitutes from tbe post. Ono of tbo women"was upon intimate terms with Trum peter Dlxon. Corporal Carter was obliged to resort to physical force In his efforts to rid the garrison ot tbo objectionable women. This aroused Iho bluer animosity of Dixon. On tbo evening of September 30 , 1501 , Dlxon went to Ibo quarters of bis troop and asked Corporal Carter to step to the door as he wunted lo speak to him. Dixon and Carter walked out aud the door closed. An instant later tbo toldiers within tbe barracks wcro startled by the report/of a revolver Just out side tbe dcor. Rushing out they found Carter and Dixon in a fiercu struggle , Carter on his Ituec3-vvith his arms around Dixon's waist and Ulxoti trying to free him self from Carter's hold , "For God's sok0 , don't let him tret away,1' culled Carter , "bo bus shot mo.1' Dlxon still held the smoking revolver in bis band , but throw , it awav us tbn other soldiers rushed upon him. He was overpow ered ana placed In chains and Carter died about mldutght frqiri thn effects of the bullet , which passed through bis body.
