ot'n.uor Chandler , in his criticism on con-
"al grounds of the action of tl.o
ftuit in the appointment of Mr. LUount
*
ns his personal icpicscntatlvo in the
Hawaiian matter , was closely followed by
republicans nnd democrats alike , and but for
the determined effort to picss the lopcal bill
to a vote the incident would doubtless have
led to a lengthy and Intelcstmg debate.

The resolution offered jesterday by Mr

action OT congress to picvent the appoint
ment of iifllccrs or nomination of olllccis of the
Unltodrfetates without awauant of constitu

both. Mr. Clmndler sent up to the desk and

Mr. Camtlcn , democrat.of West Vitglnla , ad
dressed the sen ito In advocacy of the bill.
Ho said the Shcimnn aet was an innovation
on the icc'ognUed principles of finance , and
ho should \oto for its icpcal with the clear
imdcistaiullng that It should not produce a
contiaction In the volume of money , which

Tlio free coinage ot silver under the exist- j
Ing conditions , said Mr. Camden , and its cir
culation at a piriti with gold , was a ptactl-
eal impossibility , and ani attempt to estab
lish bimetallism or the flee coinage of silver
In the United States without an Intel na
tional agreement would biing the United
States at once to aslHer bisls Ho believed
that the conditions would so change bv the
end of this decade that tlio free tolnago of
sihcr would not onlj Uu icstoied In this
country , but in Kngland and Uuiopo.
If the bill to repeal the pinch ising clause of
the act of Ib'JO bo passed It should bo fol

shuo the belief which existed that the
president would not appio\o legislation
U'cognizlng sihcr , and that it was no reason
for opposing the passage of the pending bill.
Ho had full faith in the wisdom and pa

feature of debate was the speech of Hepic-

fiankness and boldness that attracted the
attention of domociats and icpublicans
alike , he reviewed the hi3toi.of . the lecon-

men in the south to icifaln control of the
states after the war. He admitted that \io-

Iho recent agitation in England In regard
to the defects found in the British war
ships , biought on mainly b > the disaster to
the Victoila , has an echo here. It will bo
rnmcmbcied that In the House of Commons
recently . , Air. Cdward T. Gout nay , n well
know u shipbuilder and member for Sunuer-
land , asked whether , since the sinking of
the war ship Victoila the goveinmcnt's attention -
tention had been directed to the
eilticism of experts at homo and
abroad as the utility of ships of monstious
size. It was claimed that the majniitv of
the large British bittle ships weio compaia-
tivclj useless for the puiposo they wore In
tended for. It was also suggested that the
Ihltish licet would bo moio strengthened by
the addition of laigo numbers of fasteiuis-
ciSI , of powerful lams , and vessels of a t.vpo
smaller and less expensive than the monster
battleships which seem to lind so much
favor with the Uiitish shipbuilder.

In this country the repoitod increase in
the naval estimate has caused much dis
satisfaction : among the radicals and Hbcials
who claim that Germany docs not need a
stiong navv or an addition to the army.
Iho shipbuilding experts of Go-many have
followed closely the criticism made in Eng
land upon the British warship which
has recently met with disaster ,
and t'uo German experts insist that
the ' present existing typo of Geiman
wjiships is especially unsuited to Germany ,
They cite , as an Instance , that the Koenig
Wilhelm and the IJoutschland arc scaicely
able to use their guns during a heavy sea.
This fact was instanced icoently during the
naval mauouvcis in the German ocean , and
ittl is claimed that these ships were shown to bo
thoroughly unsuited for Gcimanj's flatland
coast. The Koenig Wilholm was launched

Doutschlana has ten inches of armor , canies
eight " 3-ton guns and sov en 4-ton guns. She
has 9,000 indicated horse power and a dis
placement ' of 7,700 tons. It is also shown
that w at ships like the Kron Piiiu roll so
much ' in the Geiman ocean that their crows
are scarcely able to move at all In view of
these facts , it is moio than likely that the
govcinmcnt will meet with serious opposl-
lion in eauying out Hmpeior William's pro-
jcct to incicasu the stiength of the Geiman
navy.

WORK OF THE CONVENTION YESTERDAY
Motions to Endorse Maxwell and Powell
Votsd Down in Turn.
NEAT LITTLE PLAN TH\T MISCARRIED
Scheme to Muzzle the Convention Expcsai
and Quickly Knocked Out.
PLAIN TALK INDULGED ON THE FLOOR
Sir. Uotuwiiict- Cull * 1'tililio Attention to
Job liy Uhlcli It Un Hoped to
Ciipttiro tlio Mrotlnc The
Douglas count v jcstcriliy refused to fol
low the example set by Dodge county thrco
weeks ago in ondoising a straw man for su
preme Judge In oiilcr to play into the hondc
of the combined coi poration and boodle ring
foices , that have conspuod to overthrow
Juilifo Maxwc'll.
'Iho convention took two votes , consldor-
lii' , ' thondvisabtlity ofcndoislng cither Max
well or Wcnster's dummC. . N. Powell , and '
declined to instruct the delegation for nny
one , linallj selecting a mixed delegation to
the stale' onventlon and
allowing It to go
imhampeicd H Is believed that the delega
tion , consisting of Kb men , contains a slight
maloiity of anti-Jlaxweil men , the Maxwell
side numbering between forty and Ilfty.
The convention hall was crowded , the
galleries and all the vacant space in tha
* ear of the delegates' seats being early
packed witli i.iilioad sympathizers. A ,
number of them even mixed with the del *
gates on the floor , and an.v number of them
voted with the
anti-Maxwellites on every
viva voce vote. A number of candidates for
cit.v and county olllccswcro piesent , where
they weic completely ovcishadowod by th
ciowd of stilkeis nmishalod for the occa
sion by thocoiporition bosses.
The gic it luteicst taken in the contest by
thoBuiliugton was oveiiwhoio manifest by
the picseiico and activity of the lepresenta.-
tivesofthat lo-ul , even General Manager
Holdicue belli- ' , uptown to personally oversee -
see what was being dono. Ho did not ap
pear at the convention hall , but took n
station at a convenient point on Sixteenth
street near Farnam , where ho was kept informed -
formed bj moans of a three minute mossoit
gor bulletin seivico of all that was happen ,
ing in the convention.
The setback the
anti-Maxwell men re
ceived at the primaries did not discourage
them or proven t a continuation of the work o
proselyting yesterday morning. The railroad
manipulate ! i had their stiikers at work at
an early hour , and as fast as the delegates
fiom the country put in an appearance they
wcio buttonholed and every inducement was
offeiod to swing them to the corporation sldo
of the light. The indications wore that in
some Instances these blandishments were
successful , but up to the time the cotir \ Ac
tion was called to 01 dor it seemed to ' , < *
impicssioii of these who were best informed
that the country would give Maxwell at
least foity of their sixty-five votes.
The same pro iam was cairiod out with
the city delegates , the omlssidos of the
railioids and other
coiporations that are
working together lo accomplish the turning
down of the chief justice persistently fol
lowing up the delegates who were known to
bo on the other side , and bringing to boar
upon them all possible persuasion.
A caucus of the country delegates wa
called to meet In Washington hall Just
before the convention and a caucus of the
city anti-Maxwell men was hold in the
Boaid of nducation committee rooms at 1
o'clock.
The convention was called to order in
Washington hall shortly after 2:15 : o'clock
yesieiday af tei noon.
The feeling of uncertainty that prevailed
wis the only coitain thing In connection
with the assemblage as the delegates settled
In their se-its when Chairman A. S.
Churchill of tlio county central committo
called to order and directed Scciotury
Jenkins to road the published call.
Tempidry Or unlz.itlon ,
Mr. Chut chill nominated Phil n. Winter
for temporary chairman , and it was Indorsed
by the convention.
Mr Winter briefly voiced his thanks ,
speaking of the joint defeat and victory of
a yc'ir ago , vlctmj that was none too doir
ind defeat that would moan more than vic
tory this year Ho urged harmony and pre
dicted a successful outcome of the camgulgn.
W. A. Messlck was elected secretary and-
J. IJ Van Dem assistant soeiotary ,
K Uosuwatcr moved that credentials bo
handed up and vvhcro there vTero no contest *

The credential * * were handed In and In

Mr Ctavvford objected lo tha introduction

It developed that the split occurred over a
change in Iho polling place and it was fur
ther stated that Crawford was not a resi
