With every ( rain that came Into Springfield today came largo delegations of delegates to the demo cratic stale convenllon. The fear of leaders last night that the attendance would be email were allayed. More people came than any ono expected and loday Iho slreels were thronged wllh sltverltes from all parls of Hie ntnte. Blue badges bearing Ihc Inscription , "Free Silver , 10 to 1 , " flullcred from the lapels of coats of Incomers and many delega tions carried banners proclaiming their be lief In free coinage of silver on a basis of 1C to 1 of gold. During Hie night the wcalher became cool and loday light summer coals were not heavy enough for comfort. It Is Ihc first time In the memory of the oldest politician of the stale Ihal Iho weather has been anything but sweltering hot during a con vention In this clly. The delegations lhat came In yesterday and lasl night were up almost with the sun this morning and en- Ihuslastlc silver speeches by enlhuslasllc believers In free coinage could be heard In the lobbies of all the hotels. During the morning Iho dlfferenl congres sional delegations held sessions In the rooms of Iho capltol building for ihe purpose of selecting members ot committee ! ! on J credentials , rules , permanent organization and resolutions. In many cases resolullons were adopted upholding the democratic state central committee In Its action In calling the silver convent'on. ' These resolutions were distributed through congressional com mittee rooms by representatives of Die cenlrat committee. When the committees concluded their work a stampede wus made to gel desirable scats In the Hcnato chamber , which rV was lo be Iho convention hall. When W. H. Hlnrlchsen , chairman of the democratic slate central committee , appeared on Ihe slngo Ihere was loud cheering , which continued for some minutes. After 11 hnd subsided Mr. Hlnrlchs-n said Rev. F. W. Taylor would lead In piayer. Al Ihe conclu sion of prayer , Mr. Hinrlchsen called the convention to order and delivered the follow ing address. REASONS FOR THE CALL. Tlcfore stating the object of this conven ' tion It Is proper thai 1 should give brlclly the reasons of the suite central committee for culling you togi-ther. When the present committee was organized last Jiimmry It found the ilvniocrallc parly of the mule In a deplorable condlllon. At the November election thousiimlH of Its members had voted the republican ticket , thousands luul vottd the pupullrit ticket , while olliera nullted nnd return ! lo vote any ticket. In fiict , with the exception of a few old bour bens nnd United States olllce holders , there Keemcd to be but lltllo left of a party which had carried the uttite by over W,0W ) ( plurality Iwo years before. The sllualloli demanded the most cncr- Ketlc acllon on Iho part of the slaie com- mlllcc und nn Investigation of the causes for the demoralization of Iho parly WHS ut once sot on foot. It wua found thai Ihc mosl nentrnl cause of complaint was thai congress hud 1'alled to establish a pcrimi- nent cuiraiey Hyslem for our country und that even in their attempts to do so our representatives had not retlected the real sentiments of their constituents. ' The presi dent nnd each member of congress had In terpreted the currency plank of flio plal- form of IS' ) ! ! lo milt himself , nnd It was ovl ent that m at of them had tiled to cany out the wlshi'S of a minority rather than a nmjority of the parly. The currency question was found to bo the most common subject of discussion among the people , and II waa easy lo ceo that that would IIP the gieut Issue In the next campaign. BlUer clubs wcro being formed nil over the counlry , mans conven tions of silver democrats were being called In the counties and the organization of the national diver party at Washington thrcal- cned lo tnko fiom the United Stales Iho lasl forlorn remnant of our demoralized party. The slluallon was n grave one. The presi dent and other democrats In high places net-mod determined on a line of policy to which the rank and Illo of the party wcie opposed. The admlnlstrallon could nol or would not believe that It was not In ac cord with the people In Its financial policy. The committee In plniinlnp : a campaign T.of nducnllon found that one side or Ihc other of Hits great financial question must be taken. It hnd no right to make n platform or to outline a policy , .so in Its trouble It determined upon thu democratic plan of nsklnir the people for Instructions , and so this convention was called. MIGHT PHI3VKNT A SPLIT. The question bus been asked , why was Ihe convenllon railed HO early ? II Is easily answered , for Ihore were two good reasons Ono wan lo forestall the action of the na tional ( diver parly , which was ne to launch n boom Unit would have . ed uway many good dcmocratH hi this nnd other starts , nnd the other was for the pur pose of opening up the question for dis cussion IOIIK unouKh before > ! ic meeting of the national convention In ISM to prevent hopeless split In the parly. It waa remem bered that Just previous to the convenllon of 1SSS , when Ihe democratic party wan divided on Iho larilt question , much ntt U Is on Ihc money question today , that Presi dent Cleveland Issued his fa-mous mossiigo committing the party to tariff reform , and that the khortnes-'s of time between Ihe Issuingof Iho message nnd the election prevented Ihc thorough discussion of Iho question and ? o broimht on democratic de feat. This was cmo of Iho mistakes Jeof President Cleveland that the democrallc parly did nol care lo imitate. 11 has bcn asserted Hull a slate conven tion lias no llKht to discuss and pass upon a national Issue , and thai consequently quently this convention should not ' Iiavu been called. Such a suggestion s absurd. A national convention made up of delegates from the dif ferent Htutes nnd Ihe parly in each slate has u. right to express Itself at any and all times upon any and all questions , and teen Instruct Its delegates to the national con vention as lo Iho p.illoy II doslroa carried out. While the action of tliln convention cannot bind the delegates to Ihe national convenllon of 1SC. yet Its action can and will servo an n. basis for n campaign of education lo bo cairlfd oul hy Iho stale committee , to the end that the parly bo united on one commoji object. The rommltteo has been severely crlll- clscd for calling this convenllon. The worst motives have been suggested , the vilest cplllu'lH have boon used , and men calling themselves d.emopruls have nol hesitated to Bay through the public press that the action of thu committee was Irregular , Illegal traitorous nml destructive. The committee has had llllle to say Ir reply to thcso attacks and has avoided iiny personalities lhat inlKht drive nny KOOC democrat oul of the party , bul I feel It neil duty at this time rum place lo make a de nial of nil thcso charges. Theacllon of tin commltleo was strictly regular nnd accord liiK to party precedent. I think I hnvi ! pliown clearly Unit It was ncce sary f ir tin wood of the party nnd Ihal It Is approvc-i by Ihe party In fhown hy the hearty re gponso It has met with from the people. HEAD NO MAN OUT OF T11K 1'AUTV Now I bellevo a man may be n oed democrat nnd bo In favor of any form I o currency wlwtxoever until Iho parly plal form has been built. Ho may be a K old- bui ; nnd bo iv good democrat ; ho may bo > blmetalllst nnd bo n good democrat ; he nay bo a Krcoubacker nnd be a peed democrat but a man who soys nnd believes that tin itato committee had no ilKhl to call uii tin people for Inslructlon. or who nays nnd bo l ileves that this convention hnd no right ti assemble and < llseiiF any question , nan not ere drop of democratic blood in his vein nnd has no right or place In the Oomocrutl This convention was not called for the purpofo of reading nny man out of the parly , nor has the committee or any mem , ber concerned In Uio call ulven uUcriinc to nny expression that would Indicate nny nuch Intention. On the contrary , every er- fort has been made to prevent anytnlui like a rupture In the democratic ranks. At the sumo time Ihe rommltteo has resente thn atlempts of a few would-be bose t l control the mafscs. either by menu * I o public patronage or by threats of lenvln The party , nnd now that they liuve HO evl- dently failed to accomplish their purp und desire to leuvo us wo can only bid them ffoodby nnd with them bctler luck 1 basting the opposlllon. Gentlemen , you have responded to the call f the committee | n coming hero today , and It Is my hope that your further nctlon will not only mark oul n line of policy for Ihe commlllee lo follow , but will servo to unite the democratic party on one common ob ject , nnd enable us to ncnln write ourselves Iho majorlly parly In Ihe slate and In the nation. Mr. Hlnrlchscn's speech was Interrupted by frequent applause , and he commanded the closest aUentloti. At the cincluslon ot his speech Mr. Hlnrlchsen tald that the state central commlllco would ann unci Ihs list of the temporary offiers. The temporary chairman named was Judge Monroe C. Craw , ford of Union county and the secretary Arthur W. Bentley of Pike counly. Districts were called for the purpose of re ceiving the names of the different commlt- tecmcn and Ihe fact developed th.il a full llfl of dlslrlct delegates had been selected In caucus this morning to attend a national monetary convention , should one be called. The committee on resolullons named In cluded Richard Mlcliaelis. P. H. Keennn and J. W. Lanehart of Chicago ; Attorney Gen eral M. T. Moloney , the famous Pullman labor commissioner ; N. E. Worthtngton of Peorla and ex-United Stales Land Commis sioner W. A. J. Sparks. DENOUNCED AS GAG RULE. Thomas M. Neely of Menard county moved Ihal all resolullons of political naluro which are to bo offered hero be referred to the committee on resolutions without being read. Thomas Merrill crealed considerable cx- cltcmcnt by opposing this method and char acterized It ps gag rule. The convention was called for the purpose of considering a great question and he was opposed to all gag methods. Amid much cheering Mr. Agnew - now of Cook succeeded In having Judge Miller of Cook added to the committee on resolullons and Slalo Scnalor Mahcney did a like service for Hon. A. J. Hunter. Sev eral atlempls to lake a recess were voled down. Finally on motion of Mahoney ad journment was lakon unlll 2 o'clock , Mahoney saying lhat It was necessary to give com- mlllccs llmo to meet and formulate their re ports. The commltlee appointed lo selecl four delegates at larre lo a national silver con- ver.llon mel during Ihe recess. John P. Hopkins of Chicago and Secretary of Stale W. II. Hlnrlchsen were elected by acclamation. Some discussion followed con cerning other nominations made. Finally Hon. George B. Flthlan of Jasper counly and General Lewis B. Parsons of Clay counly were elecled by acclamallon. John Warner of Peorla , John Watson of Knox county , General Alfred Orendorff of Sangamon and L. 0. Whltnelt of Johnson county were chosen alternatives. When the convention reassembled the re port of the committee on credentials was received and adopted. The committee on permanent organization elicited vigorous ap- plarsc by naming as permanent chairman Judge S. B. McConnell of Chicago. A com mittee consisting of Hon. Free P. Morris , N. | E. Worthlnglon and Judge Slell was ap- 1 polnled and escorled Judge McConnell lo Ihe chair. Judge McConnell , who was enthusiastically applauded , said : "This convention has a most peculiar and most Important signifi cance. Heretofore managers of political parties have so arranged Ihal party pollllcs should bo declared only at the time candi dates were chosen and only a short tlmo before the galherlng of Iho franchises of ) the people. The result 1ms been often that our conventions have put forth n mere as i- sortment of general principles , and have on live Issues expressed themselves In meaning less compromises. Colorless candidates have been presenled lo Iho people , or candidates unsympathetic with the real purpose of Ihe parly. "This convention marks a departure , nnd Is Intended not only to allow a free discus sion before the next political engagement I , but to define our party position wllh dls- llnclncss and dcflnllcness so Ihal no volcr ; shall fall lo understand us nnd no candi 1- date If chosen to office have a chance or excuse lo defeat our command. " Ex-Congressman Bryan , Judge Hunter and Richard Mlcliaelis addressed the convention. Governor Altgeld was called for and spoke l al some lenglh. General John A. Mc- Clarned also spoke. Then Iho committee on resolullons re- porled , Chairman Flthlan reading the fol > ' lowing resolullons : I CURE FOR ALL OVU .ILLS. Whereas , Silver nnd gold have been Ihe ( principal money metals of Ihe world for - thousands of years , and silver money la recognized and used ns honest money be tween Individuals nnd between nations not withstanding the varying ratio between sil ver nnd gold ; and , Whereas , The demonetization of silver has deprived the pec pie of the free UPO nnd benefit of a valuable and original money metal , and has Increased debts and added . to Iho burdens of Ihe people by lowering Ihe value of labor and labor products and. AVherens , The constitution of the Unlled States prohibits any state from usingany Ihlng bul gold and sliver coin ns a le.ural tender for the paymenl of debts , thereby recoKiilzIng tluil coin composed of silver or of gold as honest money and to be used ns n legal tender ; Ihereforo be It Resolved , Uy th ( > democrats ? of Illinois , in convention assembled , that we are In favor of both fold and silver as the standard : money of the United States , and demand the free and unlimited coinage of both metals at the ratio of W to 1 , without waitIng Ing- for the notion of any other nation , and such coins shall be n. legal lender for all debtH , both private and public , and thai all contracts hereafter executed for the payment of money , whether In gold , silver or coin , may bo discharged by any money which l hy law a legal tender. Resolved , Thai we hereby endorse hem action of Ihe democrallc ptnto central com mittee In calling this convention , and mwe Inslruct the commltleo lo carry out Ihe will of IhUi convenllon , as expressed In Us pliilform , by Inaugurating and carrying on a campaign of education In this state and lo thoroughly orsanlzo the democracy of the plate on the lines as laid down In the platform of this convention. Resolved. That the democratic meinbern of congress from this stale be nnd an- hereby Instructed to use nil honor- abli ) means to carry oul Ihe principles above enunciated. There was a lengthy debate In regard to the resolution favoring an Invitation to the thea Is national democrallc committee to call national democratic convention. The follow ing was finally adopted : REQUEST A NATIONAL CONVENTION. Resolved , That we request the demo cratic national committee to.rall a conven- llon lo consider Ihc money question not lalcr lhan AUKU I 18. 1S35. If the un mltleo refuses lo call such n ion llien wo Invlle the democratic Hate com- mlllees of oilier slales lo lake concurrent nctlon with the democratic Blalo committee - of this Btule on Ihls subject. This resolution was greeted with loud ap plause. as was also the 10 to 1 paragraph apot the main resolutions. A resolution endorsing .Governor Altgeld . was greeled with enthusiasm and Ihe meellng I was frequently Interrupled by Ihe shouts of > applause In approval of the expressions regarding garding his vetoes of certain bills.

BRADLEY NOMINATED FOR GOVERNOR In III ) .Speech of Acceplnnco He Asked Democrats Who Were with Them on riimucu to AM In the Redemption of the Itlue Units Stntc. LOUISVILLE , Juno G. The republican state convention convened at 2 p. m. at the Auditorium , which seats G.OOO , and was filled to Its utmost capacity. Hon. J. W. Yerkes , one of the candidates for senator , as chair man of the state committee , made a strong speech on the existing conditions In Ken tucky and Introduced Temporary Chairman George Denny , who Is contesting with Colonel W. C. Owens the seat of Breckln- rldge In congress. After Judge Denny's speech the usual committees were appointed , the one on resolutions Including all the re publican congressmen-elect from Kentucky. Congressman Walter Evans offered a strong resolution for a gold standard. It was referred to the committee on resolutions. An Invitation to appoint delegates to the coinage convention at Memphis was tabled. Congressman Evans was made permanent chairman und Samuel J. Roberts , editor of the Kentucky Leader , secretary. It was ascertained that the committee on resolutions was having difficulty on the free silver plank. Colonel Bradley and other leaders appeared before the committee and Insisted on a compromise silver plank. The convention remained In session up to 5:30 : , filling in with speeches , when It took a recess until 7:30 : , awaiting the report of the committee on resolutions. On reassembling tonight the committee on resolutions was unable to report and favor ites were again called out for speeches , until 9 p. m. , when the platform was unanl- mously adopted. The platform charges that the recent re- ducllon in wages , decline In exportatlons , general depression of business , shrinkage In values and labor agllatlon have all been duo to the apprehension of business Inlcrests as lo recent threalencd tariff changes and the want of confidence In democrallc man- agcmenl. Conllnulng , Ihe resolullons de clare : "This apprehension , accompanied wllh subsequent democratic legislation , made by 'party perfidy nnd dishonor , ' has served In many respecls lo Increase ralher Ihan diminish national disaster. Under Iheso clr- cumslances Ihe currency qucsllon has been i forced Into undue prominence , and the dem ocratic party has seized upon that Issue , to Ihe exclusion of nil others , for Ihe purpose of diverting public attention from the con- templallon of the ruin Its vicious policy and miserable mismanagement has wrought , "We are opposed to the free and unlimited coinage- sliver , believing It would Involve the counlry In financial ruin. We bellevo In a sound currency and In Iho use of both gold and silver for coinage , provided always that a dollar In one Is made precisely as valuable as a dollar In Ihe oilier. "We favor n lurlff so regulated as to pro- tccl Ihe inleresls of all classes of our clti- zens upon articles that may bo successfully manufactured or produced In this country , sthus Insuring gdod wages lo Iho laborer and a home market to the producer , and In con nectlon wllh this we favor the re-cslnbllsh- mcnt of the doctrine of rcciprocily. Wo be- 1lleve lhat such n system would defray every governmental expense , gradually liquidate nil Indebtedness , restore public confidence and relegate to the rear Iho undue cxcllmcnt now prevailing concerning the currency. In view of the past financial history of the dem- cocratlc party , Us devotion to Iho old slale bank syslem and wildcat tendencies , we af- efirm that Iho republican parly Can be more safely Iruslcd lo regulale Iho financial sys lem of lha nation. "We favor an American policy which will protect Americans and American Intcresls In all parts of the world at all hazards , nnd will sympathize wllh strongly republican governments , rather than Ignorant mon archies. " State Chairman Yerkea presenled Ihe name of Colonel W. O. Bradley for Iho nomination for governor. The nomination was made by acclamation , with continued demonstra- tlons until Colonel Bradley was escorted to ; Ihe plalform. After thanking Ihe convention and accepting the nomination for governor Colonel Bradley reviewed recent political - changes In Kentucky and on the financial plank said : "Tho platform of today Is but a repellllon of the platforms of the past. It demands protecllon for every American Inlerest , pro- tecllon for Iho producer , protection for the manufaclurer , prolecllon for the laborer and protection for the currency. It denounces the heresy of the free , unlimited and Inde - pendent coinage of silver , and It will pro tect the people from the dishonor of repudia tion. It has said before and repeats It now , Ihnl every dollar should bo of equal value with every other dollar , and that every promise to pay a dollar shall be as sacred as a soldier's grave and worth 100 cents wherever files the Hag. It favors the send of gold and silver of equal purchasing and equal debt-paying power , and will preserve for every son of toll the same dollar that Is held by the richest millionaire In the land . We heartily sympathize with the Intelligent business men of the democratc party who agree with us on this question and ask them ! to stand by and help us In an honest effort > to preserve the nation's credit. " His In - dictment of the national administration was very severe , and for almost an hour he de - nounced the democratic management of state o.ffalrs In Kentucky. The names of eight candidates for the lieu a tenant governorship were presented and after balloting until midnight without result the convention adjourned until tomorrow morn- . Ing. Colonel Bradley says he will visit each of - the 119 counties and make an aggressive campaign.

( Special Telegram. ) The alleged non-partisan free silver state convention held hero today was very poorly attended and was composed principally of the same old crowd of populists and free coinage democrats and republicans. The most notable exception was Amos Stcckcl , air banker of Bloomfleld , la. , who has been a life-long republican. He was made chair ! man of the meeting and otherwise put forward ward for the purpose of attracting atten - tion. None of the leading sllverltcs of other - - states appeared , as was expected. The prin , cipal Item of Interest was a letter from United States Circuit Judge Henry C. Caldwell . - . well , In which he says In part : "I have no hesitation , therefore. In saying ' that I am In favor of the Immediate and . unconditional free coinage of gold and sil ver at the ratio of 16 to 1 , making the sil ! ver dollar the unit of value as It was under . the act of 1792. Whether the act of 1792 was or was not suncptltl mly rcca'ed ; one thing Is certain , the question of Its re peal as never made an Issue In the pol itics of this country tnd the voice of the people Was never taken upon It at the pollt or In any other manner. No party or fac tion ever demanded Its repeal , and the people . ple and many senators and representa tives In congress at the time of Its repeal wure Ignorant of the fact that It had been repeal ? ! ! until long flfter the passage of thi < rcpral. The question now IB , will the people > . ple ratify that repeal or restore to the statute book the law so repealed with' | out their sanction * The people llhof this country want neither a 50-cenl : dollar nor a 200--ent d'j'lir ' , bul the 100-cent dollar of tiielr fathers , which without their knowledge or consent , was' taken from them by the act of 1873. It IB vi to expect England to voluntarily consent la an International arrangement lor the free coinage of sliver when by so doing the cost tow her of our wheat and our tlvcr bullion would thereby bo doubled. She will * purn our supplications nnd with the arrogance and In solence that such cowardly and pusillanimous action on our part deserve * . What will move England Is courage and. aggressive action and not cowardly supplication. The Issue Is sharply defined. Those wbo do not favor the free and unconditional coinage of both gold nnd s'lver ' at the ratio of 1C to 1 , making the silver dollar the unit of Value , ns was done under the act of 1792 , are for the single gold standard. ' There Is no middle ground. "I have the greatest respect for President Cleveland , because ho Is ono of the lew great party leaders In this country today who has the courage nnil honesty to boldly own his views on this question. The majority of those who arc credited with being leaders of their party are either as mute as oysters or utter empty and meaningless platitudes In the hope of currying favor with both sides. I have groa',1 respect for a real live and avowel 'goP/ bug , ' but only contempt for a straddle bv * " The meei'.g was continued this evening , addressed by Amos Steckel , General Weaver , ex-Congressman White , Rev. S. H. Basher and others. The democrats will hold a meet ing tomorrow. Resolutions were adopted In favor of the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and stiver at the ratio of 10 to 1 , without the aid or consent of any other nation on earth , and asking all men of all parties who hold to the doctrine thus cxprewcJ to vote for only such candidates for state offices and members of the next general assembly as will pledge themselves ! to the principles above announced and to make this the supreme Issue till the pllver dollar of our fathers befully restored to ' the people. THINKS UKMOCHACY WILL SI'LIT Senator Thumton Predicts There Will Ito Two Dnmocr.itla Couronttmii. SALT LAKE , Juno G. Senator J. M. Thurston , In an Interview today on the pollti- cal situation , said : "At the time I opposed Bryan for the senate I took the position that the United States could not take care of all i the silver In the world , but should take care of the American product , under such condi tions as would malic a sliver dollar as good as a gold dollar anywhere. I believe the re publican parly will make a declarallon sub- slanllally the same as that of the national plalform GC GI In 1S92. It binds the parly lo take care of Ihc American product , and I believe Iho obligation will bo recognized. "The long wing of the democratic party , which fused to Ihe populists , will declare for free and unlimited coinage of silver. I feel now Ihal Ihero will bo two democratic con ventions. When the convention Is hold I be- llovo Iho free silver wing of j the parly will bo In absolute control , Ihougn II may not be able to nominate on account of the two-thirds rule. I do not see how the republicans can go any further lhan they did In 1892 without declaring for Ihe free and unlimited coinage of silver. The disposition of the silver repub licans ) lo boll Is only found lo any grcal cx- lenl In Colorado , Montana , Wyoming , Idaho and Nevada. The republicans of Oregon , California , Washington and the Uakolas will support the party declaration. " Being asked aboul Iho slant ! of the repub lican party on the tariff ho said : "If any body supposes that the republicans will ac- qulesco In the Wilson tariff bill he Is very much mistaken. I believe tariff will bo a more Important question than "silver. For myself , I bellevo to restore protection will settle our financial Ills. I am a high tariff I man and bellevo McKlnley is the best man for president. " HIOUX J'ALfJi Ol'Plt KIlIX TliaVllLi : Kxnctlng- Mayor Snin'mpn'FlKhtlnc the En- , , .Urn I It } .

There was much cxclto- mcnt In London anil at the Foreign office yesterday evening at the receipt of dis patches confirming the dispatches from Constantinople announcing that the Turkish government had refused to agree to reforms In Armenia which were de manded by the representatives of Great Britain , Franco and Russia. All Ihe Foreign office officials , Including the secretary of state for foreign affairs , the carl of Kimberly , were at tiielr posts lasl night nnd have assembled again at the ForPt clgn ofilco today. There Is a strong belief In well Informed circles hero that the reply of the porto was purposely drafted In unfavorable terms In order to pain time. The sultan Is Invisible during the Bulrnni , one of the two great Mahomcdan festivals of the year , which Is now being observed. Consequently the powers , It Is asserted here , will now address a stronger note to the porto and In addition will back this up by a naval demonstration. The crisis In the east Is already re garded on all sides as being grave , and this feeling Is Intensified by the news from Con stantinople today telling of the panic at Jlddah , the threatened attack of the Be- doulns and the flight of Europeans who are seeking safety on board the vessels In the harbor. It Is freely predicted hero that an outbreak Is Inevitable. " There Is no question of the powers abating their demands in any form , though there IB a growing belief that Russia is backing Tur key In the latter's refusal to agree to the reforms demanded by the powers , for Ar menia. The full text of the demands of the powers will bo published here today. It makes over 3,000 words and the main points of it have already been cabled. The note of the powers In this connection makes twelve distinct suggestions or de mands In regard to Armenian reforms as fol lows : 1. Ths eventual reduction of the number of vilayets. 2. Guaranties for the selection of vails , or governors. 3. Amnesty for Armenian political prlst oners. 4. Return of Armenian exiles to their homes. G. Final settlement for common law crimes. 0. The Inspection of prisons. 7. The appointment of a high commis sioner to supervise the reforms. 8. The creation of a permanent committee of control at Constantinople. 9. Indemnity to the Sassoun and other vic tims of the recent massacres. 10. Regulation of rellgous conversions. 11. Maintenance of the Armenian rights and privileges. 12. I'osttlon of the Armenians in other villages of Asiatic Turkey to be regulated on the same basis. FORTE'S ANSWER TO THE POWERS. LONDON , June 5. The correspondent of the Standard at Constantinople telegraphs , as follows : "I learn from a trustworthy source that the reply of the porte to the British , French and Russian notes in refer ence to reforms In Armenia , rejects the pro posal to appoint a high commission in Ar menia and a mixed commission at Constanti nople and proposes merely to apply the re forms provided for In the old arlstarchlclde , which has been nominally In force during the last half century. The reply also grants amnesty to all Armenians who have been Implicated in recent events In Armenia. It Is believed the powers will now force a date for the scheme , falling which they will en force It. " In an editorial commenting on the fore going dispatch from Constantinople the Standard suggests that the rejection of the scheme proposed by the powers is a device for the purpose of gaining time. The sul tan , it says , must make his choice. He must accept the reforms proposed or see Armenia severed from his empire. THICKS AIIE I'ANIC STUICKKN. Serious Outlook Threatened nt Jlddtili nnil r < ir 'iiiier I'leelnpf. CONSTANTINOPLE , June G. Advices re- colved hero from Jlddah , Arabia , a seoporl of Mecca and Ihe scene of Iho recenl murderous assault on Iho consular officers of Gieal Britain , Russia and France , announce Ihal a panic prevails Ihere and lhat It Is feared the Bedouins will atlack Ihe town. The latler are held responsible for Iho al- tack upon the consuls which resulted In the death of the British vice consul , and a number of them were arrested In cense quence. This has caused an angry feeling among the Bedouins , who demand the re lease of those apprehended and'threaten to use force If the'lf demand is not complied with. The situation Is so serious that the Europeans of Jlddah are hastily seeking refuge on board the merchant vessels In the harbor , taking with them all they possibly can of their belongings. It is also stated in the advices from Jlddah that the arrival hero of the British Mediterranean squadron , numbering sevcn- teen war ships of various classes. Is anxiously expected even by the Turkish authorities , as the garrison Is very weak. In addition to the arrest of those sup posed to have been connected with the as sault on the foreign consuls , animosity has been aroused by the quarantine measures | which the Turkish government has been compelled to take at Mecca , at the Instance of the powers , In order to prevent llui Intro duction of cholera Into northern ports by the return of Infected pilgrims from Mecca. In fact. It Is believed that the sanitary measures were the real cause 01 the attack upon the consuls. The measures referred to were quite recently taken under severe pressure of the powers and at the Instance of the Turkish International councils of health , for the purpose of cleansing the holy places fre quented annually by EO many thousands 'Cof pilgrims. These sanitary Improvements be gan In April last at Jlddah and at other towns of the Ilcjaz or pilgrim districts of Arabia , and they Include the building of hospitals , the frequent disinfection of the places resorted to by pilgrims , the selection by the health officers of the camping places , furnishing wholesome supplies of water and provisions and general sanitary supervision over the pilgrims. To this new order of things the latter have been strongly ob jecting , looking upon It as an unwarranted Interference upon the part of Europeans In their religious customs , and It Is feared that the so-called holy men are excltjng the pilgrims against the Europeans , believing that their old-time privileges and profits will be swept away If the march of sanitation Is not stopped , The envoys of Great Britain , Russia and France In this city arc awaiting Instructions from their Kovernmcntg - in regard to the situation of affairs at Slffdah , aa well as regarding the refuial of the Turkish govern ment , as exclusively cabled by the Asso ciated press yesterday afternoon , to agree goto the reforms In Armenia which have been : proposed by the powers. In this connection the situation of affairs Is unchanged. The Porte's reply , however. Is regarded as 'hea momentary success for the military party. On the other hand , the policy of Turkey In Oils matter Is criticised by the Ottoman statesmen , who regard the I'orte's action as disastrous to Turkey. Fnrmn'lnit Itrpulillo Collipir .

( Special Telegram , ) A . number of prominent Union Pactfla officials and attorneys dropped Into Salt Lake this morning from Portland , and dur ing the day they have been preparing for the great contest to bo waged on the re ceivership question be'foro Judge Merrill tomorrow. In Iho party wcro John SI. Thurston , Thurston's law partner. R. 9. Hall , who comes direct from Omaha ; Wlnslow S. Pierce , attorney for the first mortgage bondholders ; E. P. Sanboru ot St. Paul , George R. Butler of Omaha , Max- field Storey and George P. Colby of Boston. John M. Egan , who expects to be Short Line receiver , also arrived and was Inter viewed during the day by The Bee corre spondent. Ho did not desire to talk on the question of the receivership while the mat ter was pending In court , but stated that Salt , Lake was the place for the head ot the system : , and If his appointment was con firmed ho would make this city his head | j , quarters. He also remarked that ho In tended to make no sweeping changes among Short Line employes. Beyond his personal staff very few now men would bo brought out. out.Mr. Mr. Egan ts not prepared to reveal tin personnel of his staff until the courts get through with the receivership case. How ever , a gentleman known to bo on confi dential terms with the receiver makes the prediction that his general traffic manager will bo P. C. Stohr. now general freight agent of the Chicago & Greal Western. 0. R. Berry , assistant general freight agent of the same road at Vt. Joseph , will prob ably bo general freight ngcnt , and It Is be lieved that C. II. Holdrcdgo of SI. Paul will bo general passenger agent , notwith standing that gentleman's denials. For this latter position , however , J. V. Parker , formerly connected with the Union Pacific. Is mentioned by people who claim to have Inside Information. It was learned today that the American Loan and Trust company would not ask to have the Southern lines oxceptcd by Judge Merrill. It Is willing to take Iho enllro system , and expects to bo compelled to pay the Interest on the Utah Soulhcrn anil Ulah Southern extension bonds , which will on August 1 amount to about $3 5.000. It IB staled that Judge Mcrrltt Is Inclined to protect the government's Union Pacific- Interests In all ways possible , which leads to a belief In some quarters that ho will appoint a Union Pacific man as Joint re ceiver. MAXIMUM. 1'IUSIOHT UATtt CASE yucttloii of Jurisdiction of Court of Ap- pimlo to He Dccldi'd Mondiiy. John L. Webster returned from SI. Paul ycslerday , where lie _ has been In attend ance upon the United Slates court of ap peals I to submit the preliminary mailers In the I maximum freight role cases. On Monday morning there was submitted to the court the several propositions which counsel for the respective fides Intend to argue. This was done at the request of Iho courl HO lhat the court might determine In advance whether Iho cases were such as Unit courl should hear or whether Iho cases t'hould bo ccrllfled lo Iho supreme courl ot Iho United State. ? . The following morning the court announced thai It had partially considered the question of Jurisdiction of the courl of appeals lo hoar Iho case , ? and was willing then to hoar argu ments from counsel upon the point , whether Ihc cases should nol go lo the supreme court of Iho United States. Thereupon lha cases were submitted lo the court on briefs them on Jilo covering Ihal point. Tuesday afternoon the court announced that II desired furlhcr lime to cpnslder the ques tion submltto.1 and that no further order would bo made In the case until next Monday. Mr. Webster states lhat ho has had the record prepared- take the cases direct to the supreme court of Ihe Untied Slates , In view of doubt on Iho Jurisdiction question , and lhat Iho cases will be carried to Iho tmpremo court of Ihe Unlled States Irrespecllve of lha ruling of the court of appeals. If It Hoc * , Thru Wlmt ? "If the Short Line BO B , what will be the policy of the preaenl receivers of the Union Pacific ? " la the question asked by railroad men. Everywhere In Overland circles specula tion Is rife as lo Jusl what will bo done by Iho receivers lo couiuaiuct the divorcement of a line of rails which for years has proven of great advantage to the Union Pacific system. Among those who are In a position to know , vital changes are expected. There will bo a reduction , necessarily , In the forces at headquarters. Some departments may be entirely wiped out nnd a curtail ment along the whole line Is expected. Bul Judge Merrltt may so surround his order with conditions lhat even Hie American Loan and Trust company , with all the mil lions behind it , may ucsltale even In a eplrll of bravado lo toke Iho properly which It has so earnestly labored for. What today will bring forth of weal or woo for the Union Pacific Is purely prob- lemallcal wllh officials. The forces , how ever , are galherlng In Salt Lake and Judeo Merrltt Is looked upon as a fair , upright jurist who will surround the Interests In his jurisdiction wllh all Ihe legal requirements necessary. Should bo decide to attach , however , to Ihe Iransfcr all of Iho Interests In his lerrllory It may be too great a bur den to bear even by tmch a corporation ai the American Loan and Trust companr. H Is said that thn American people do not like lo part with their hard-earned dollars op a contingency , and this factor may play a prominent part In the hearing loday. SIIKKF Stl'.N irif.T.
