LONDON , July C. The parliamentary
Btrugglo over the agricultural rating bill
was Ihu most bitter since the days of Irish
obstruction. Even over the third reading
the opposition resorted to the unusual course
of raising a set debate , Mr. Henry Asqulth ,
who was home secretary In the Rosebcry
cabinet , moving Its rejection. The bill le
admittedly bad and calculated to do the con-
Bcrvallves great harm at the next election
The urban constituencies of the conserva
tives demand a revision of the rules of the
JloMsc which permit of a useless waste
of time In obstruction. The only redeem
ing feature of the debate was the admirable
tact and firmness of Speaker Gully. The
ovct loading of the session's program ami
bad management have weakened the reputa
tion ot Mr Balfour as n leader. Internal
cabinet Jealousies also have something tt
< 1o with the failure * of government bills
They ma/ serve , however , as a lesson to pul
together in the fuiuro.
A letter from Mr. Gladstone Is publlshcc
today denouncing the wholesale sums ot ex
jiendlturcs on nrmaments as wild , wanloi
and peillous , but It falls to cvoku any Bym
pathy. The public Is more moved by a serl
ous article from the pen ot Sir Charle !
Dllko. just published , predicting that Grcai
Britain , single-handed. Is destined to en
gage In a great struggle against Germany
Russia and Prance combined The fight , In
contends , may come at any time within t
decade , ostensibly about Egypt , but reall ;
on account of Jealousy of Great Biltulni
colonial expansion Therefore , Sir Charlci
urges Great Britain to hold herself fiei
from any alliance which might only provi
Illusive and hold herself to the developmen
of her dcfc-nscs
The Spectator propounds the question ate
to what role America will play In the even
nf such a struggle
Having sanctioned the acceptance of th
resignation of Cecil Rhodes the governmen
lias now acquiesced In the demand of th
opposlt'on for the appointment of a sclec

The revenue leturns for the first quarte

prosperity of the working classes greatl
exceeds the estimates of the chancellor o

The prospect of a general strike of mlnei
In England Is being discussed. The cm

( lie .Situation.
CHICAGO , July 0 This ls to bo ono ot
the most tomarkablc conventions In the his
tory of American politics. With the conven
tion but forty-eight hours away and almost
three-quarters ot the * delegates on the
ground It Is so hedged about by conditions
that little can bu foreseen sis to candidates
The feature of the day has been the seeming
utter collapse ot the Teller boom. The talk
ot the existence of a senatorial cabal plot
ting to secure Teller's nomination has
aroused among many of the Incoming dele
gates a feeling of the most bitter and pas-
slonato resentment and the cry Is heard
everywhere thai the nominee must bo o
democrat. It Is considered almost treason
to suggest Teller. This , strong revolt Bgalnsl
what Is deemed an attempt at senatorial
dictation seems to have checkmated the
cabal
At , the free silver republicans and the
populist leaders leollze that the gome IE
slipping away from them they are Inclined
to glow ugly In their desperation The
former have begun to predict detent If u
demociat H nominated , on the ground thai
no matter how disposed they might bo tc
suppoit a democrat on a free silver platform
their friends In the western states would nol
follow them bag and baggage Into the dc-m <
ocratlc party. The populists could will :
dllilculty be restrained today from Issuing
an adtlrcss , raying they could not support t
demociat Both v.cre met with the argir
ment that It their professions of devallot-
to the silver cause were not hollow pro.
tenses , they must Join hands with the demo
crnts In the attempt to elect a candidate or
that Issue.
LITTLE HOOM TOR PREFnUENCi :
So far as the silver icpubllcnn bolters
were concerned , It was argued that If thej
walked out of the St. Louis convention be
causa of their convictions they must choose
if the populists carried out their threats
between the nominee of a party that con
trolled well nigh half the votes In th <
country and thu nominee of a popullstli
convention at St. Louis. The Teller Inter
view from Denver , printed here this morn
ing , saying ho would support the nominee
of this convention , completed their dlscom
Htuie. It exposed their bluff Althougl
the possibility of Teller's selection nov
seems to have vanished , the democratic sll
ver leaders who still believe he Is the mos' '
available candidate , though they may foi tin
prcsenl have been driven out Into the oppi
and forced to publicly espouse the causi
of some other candidate , are powciful mci
and skilled and trained political genciah
and the plot to nominate Teller must untl
a nomination Is actually made , be reckonet
with as n deadfall Into which the com on
tlon may bo precipitated by shicvvd nnnipu
lation , if opportunity otters. The revel
against the cabal has unquestionably hud tin
effect of hastening declarations by arriving
delegates in favor ot the two leading can
dictates Dland and Holes and both claln
large acquisitions today. Tl'o boomers o
both also began nrrlv ing In force today am
their headquarters were besieged by march
ing clubs , headed by brass bands , and tin
countless thousands ot shouteis who turn
bled along in theli wake.
It Is a question whether Bland or Dole :
has been the laigcr gainer by today's do
vclopmcnts. The Iowa candidate's man
agcrs have received many assurances o
support from Hie south and west , and , al
though Bland is still hailed and huialdei
ns the logical candidate and is undoubted ! ;
gaining ground , he has some weak point
In the present arrangement of his lines
The legitimate character of the dcclara
tlon of the Illinois delegation foi the Mis
sourl candidate yesteiday , which was t
carry with It the influence of Governor Alt
geld , is questioned. The declaration , basci
on an alleged poll of the delegation , wa
engineered by Secretary of State HInrlch
sen after he had scurcd a statement frou
Altgold that the latter would abldo by tlr
will of the majority The Altgeld men nov
challenge the accuracy of the poll am
throw out Intimations that sharp practice ;
were resorted to It Is believed , however
by Altgeld's clobo friends that ns betwcei
the two candidates ho would be for lilam
rather than Boles on account of the for
nicr's defense ot his actions during tin
Chicago riots and the lattcr's endorsemen
of the course of the administration.
PET PLAN OF ALTGELD.
Ono ot Altgeld's pet purposes Is to secun
the adoption of a plank In the platforn
condemning federal troops' Interference li
the local affairs of the states. The doub
cast on Altgeld's attitude furnishes a causi
for anxiety in the Bland camp The with
dravval of the Illinois delegation after tin
flourish of trumpels with which Its arrlva
was announced might prove disastrous
The Matthews boom seems to have beet
bhattcrcd by the row In the Indiana delega
tlon between the gold and sllvci delegate !
over the question of retiring National Com
mlttccman Sheerln. It Is evident that Gov
crnor Matthews made ncrhaps a fatal blun
del in Insisting that several of his persona
friends who were for gold should go on th <
delegation.
The Blacliburn boom docs not seem to b <
progressing , but John H. McLean ot Ohio
the proprietor of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Is
developing Into a power In the convention
Ho Is surrounded by trained politician !
whoso touch is felt everywhere Althougl
they are quietly urging him for first pliici
on tba ticket , It Is well understood that hli
aim Is to secure the nomination for vice
president His corporate Interests are mill
tatlng against him , but his power Is evldein
and there Is n ircvaillng feeling that ht
can secure second place on the ticket H
IB said the Bland men have tried to mak <
a combination with him , despite the faci
thati It Is pretty well known that Mr. Me
Lean himself believes that Teller would b (
the strongest man to nominate
Considerable discord Is developing amen *
the silver men over the rivalries natural ! )
created by the candidates , and there is alec
dissension over the platform. Many of tin
leaders are stronnly In favor of a single dec.
laratlon for free slher and the practical
ignoring Pf all other questions
The tariff question , especially , they desire
to bo handled gingerly , lest U drlvo from
them the free silver republicans of the west
who are moderate protectionists. Others ,
on the other hand , think there should be
a regular democratic platform , covering all
the pending Issues of the day Some even
favor a very radical tariff plank All golel
men , led by Mr Whitney , profess to be
encouraged by the outlook. Their plane
seem to bo based on future contingencies
Having failed to make an Impression on the
solid phalanxes of silver , their purpose seems
to bo to stir up strife and lake advantage
of such dissensions as may bo caused In the
opposition The great advantage vvhlcli
they possess , always the strength ot a hope
less minority , Is their compactness.
DON DICKINSON'S IDEA.
"Wo are a well organized force , " said
Don M. Dickinson of Michigan , who is here
with the prestige of having snatched a
victory for gold from what was admitted tc
be n free silver convention In Michigan
"Wo aru fighting an unorganized mob , re
solved only on one thing a declaration foi
the free coinage of sliver"
Such a declaration they cannot hope Ic
prevent , but they ore now making an In
genious argument to secure a compromise
an platform and candidate They tell the
silver leaders that If a democrat Is placed
on a silver platform , the silver republicans
of the west will abandon them and the
eastern democracy will be destroyed and
they will bo left high and dry , with only
the silver democratic support and without
the Bilious ot war , either from tbo east 01
west. They tell them , tlierefpre , that they
are confronted with the tUternatlve of
nominating a republican to get the support
and nld of the silver mine * owners or yieldIng -
Ing to the demand for a compromise from
Iho casl. In which the 'eastern men agree
lo keep the democracy Intact and furnish
all the campaign fund that Is needed.
NO COMPROMISE POSSIBLE
These advances are met with firm but
courteous refusal by some of the silver
leaders , who simply reply that there can
bo no compromise on the Issue The more
radical , however , receive It Eiiccrlngly In
some quarters the silver1 men not only meet
the suggestion of n'bolt wllh Indifference ,
but some ot them opojily declare that It
would strengthen their , position and they
would welcome It
The fear that the gold men , with almost ,
It not quite , one-third of thu delegates ,
would plumb their votes nbout at random
and cat so all sorts of mischief and the
further dlfllculty ot making a nomination
without thu practically unanimous vote ot
all the silver men , has revived the talk of
a silver caucus. The secret fear of Teller
has also had Us Influence In favor of a
caucus to decide the question ot a candidate
Thcro will bo'no attempt to hold such a
caucus , however , until the convention has
assembled and the dlfllculty ot selecting a
nominee In convention has been dcinon-
stiatcd Then It will be argued lhat no
candidate who Is for silver can refuse to
submit his claim to tlto'so who arc lo make
the nomination
LESS TALK 01" A. BOLT NOW.
There Is less talk today ot a bolt by the
gold men and It was openly discouraged by
Senator Hill , Mr. Whitney and others Still
It Is plain that n great many of the gold
men will refuse to support a silver candidate
and some today quietly canvassed the ad-
vlbablllly of placfng a gold ticket and gold
candidate In the Held. The advantage to
bo gained by them from 'this course , they
argue , would bo the same which came to
those who refused to support Grecley In 1S72.
Those who were dissatisfied with Grccloy
nominated O'Connor of New Yoik , and after
Grceloy's defeat. It was by their organiza
tion that the party wasreorganised and
placed on n Him footing again
The gold standaul 'men propose to In
augurate the light the moment the gavel
is dropped by Chairman Ifarrlty. They aio
resolved upon offering a gold man to the
convention for temporal y chairman , elesplle
the protests of the silver leaders , and Sena
tor Hill Is the man iipbn whom their choice
has fallen The silver leaders have the
utmost respect for Hill , but they and their
followers are determined that a silver man
shall assume the gavel and that the first
utterance In the convention shall bo un
equivocally for silver
"Wo can neither afford to be deceived
with faint praise , " snld Senator-elect Money
of Mississippi , today , "nor actually con
demned Wo must hav'd thu machinery
from the start. "
Mr Hill was today urged by some of his
silver friends not to consent to the Uho of
his name , but It was said ho had resolved
to make the fight nndftas preparing a gold
speech to bo delivered , cither from the plat-
foim , I' ho can succcbd In holding It , or
fiom the lloor. If the silverites take things
In their own hands.

Aeeorileil Soioctlilnpr of an Ovation at

DENVER , July 5 Senator Teller last
night delivcicd the address dedicating the
auditorium at Arlington park , erected by
the Welsh pcop'le ot the 'atate for the na
tional eisteddfod uoivt September. As the
senator had been asked not confine him
self to the dedication , but to speak on
political topIcB , If lie fee ilcslrcel"Jithc're
was much Interest over 'his sj > e > ecii. He
was accorded an ovation. On appearing the
Immense audience of 10.000 people rose tc
its feet and cheered lencatedly. After
dedicating the pavilion the senator leferred
to "vicious legislation concerning our
monetary system for the last twenty years"
and siid-
"If somebody tells you that It Is a
tnilfl that you want , let me tell you that
you have a bigger tariff now than you had
undci the republican tailfT of 1SS1. It Is
a protective tariff , too We all know that
that Is not the cause of oui distress , but
that It la our monetary system The
system now existing Is putting us In com
petition with all the low priced labor of
the world , the hordes of Asia Our
monetary system gives them 100 per cent
pioflt , because of the rates of exchange. Nc
tariff will prevent It. "
The senator referred to breaking away
from the St. Louis convention , saying. " 1
shall never cast my vote with that party
until , at least , It shall Uavo returned tc

Is among the delegates wjio have received
letters from a banking firm of this olty In
regard to the effect that -free silver declar
ation would have upon the buslnebs Inter
ests of the country. Iif this letter It IE
stated that $481,000 have been Invested
through the firm in Utah. Referring to tin
circular Judge Powers said"If this com
pany and the clients of that concern do not
care to play In our back yard they need
not. If they do not vvjant to Invest In Utah
some one else will. Theli clients will ic-
celvo whatever Is duci them , for Utah will
pay dollar for dollar , as nominated In the
bond. If these bankers think they can In
tlmldato us and prevent us from carrying
out the will of our constituents by covcit
threats , then I say to them that we arc not
brought up In the iriountotns to bo Beared
by owls If they Intend , to help create a
financial panic In order to drive people ) lu
support the gold standard , I have only to
say to them that In pulling out the pillars
of the financial temple they will bring the
edifice upon their own hertds as well as oun > ,
and wo can stand It as well as they I
think the bankers had -better let us > un
poll tics our own way- and devote their atten

Today Is Sunday , but no one whoso vision

Into Chicago and by tomorrow the city will
recall the palmiest of World's Fair dajs.
Comparatively few Nebraskans have arrived ,
only about half of each of the two con

tomorrow's recruits
l'ro\alllng talk Is unquestionably for
Uland , although the men In the Holes head
quarters talk confidently about their fa-
\orltos chances , and the sound money men
say they arc hopeful of beating both by
n new and less radical candidate.
1 had a little talk with Postmaster Wash

sound money forces in Chicago , this morn-
Ing. Ho Is discouraged nt the prospects
"I expect tlif free sllverltes to run things
as they please , " he said. "They seem to

silver senators who are running the demo
cratic partj for us that I think he will
force his min on the contention In that
case thcro will bo only ono Issue , and theie
should bo only ono plank In the platform
Tlmt plank should be , 'Wo favor the free

of 10 to 1. ' "
There are several contests to come up
before the national committee tomorrow ,
but Nebraska's Is the most Impoitnnt

CHICAGO , July B.Tho Bland forces ex
ecuted a coup today by convening n caucus
at the Sherman house at 2 30 o'clock , at
tended by representatives of those trans-
mlsslsslppl states favorable to Uland , The
notlco ot the caucus had not been vvldcl )
circulated , so that the large attendance ot
prominent western leaders was a source ot
unexpected gratification to the Bland man
agers. Sixteen states were represented ,
having an aggregate of 220 votes In the
convention and from the assurances civ en ,
It Is believed that most If not all ot these
western votes could be rolled on for Bland
The states represented with their respective
votes were as follows Arkansas , 1C , Colorado
rado , 8 ; Idaho , 6 , Illinois , 4S , Katibas. UO ;
Missouri , 34 , Montana , 6 ; Oregon , C ; Texas ,
30 , Utah , 6 Washington , S : Wjotnlng , 0 ,
Arizona , 0 , New Mexico , 0 ; Indian Ter
ritory , 6 , Oklahoma , 0 , Alaska , 0
These states comprise all west .of the
Missouri river , except California , Nebraska
and the two Dakotns The meeting was
organized by the selection ot ex-Senator
John Martin ot Kansas as chairman and
L. T Dnshlel of Texas as secretary. In
taking the chair , Senator Martin made n
vigorous speech In support ot the Bland
candidacy. On a call of the states a
delegate from each of the states reported
spoke of the Blond sentiment Governor
Overmcyer of Kansas declared Bland was
the only candidate who could be sure of
carrying Kansas and that the delegation
from that state would stand for him , llrst ,
last and all the time.
Representative Bailey ot Texas talked In
vigorous style In suppoit ot Bland , but
cautioned the friends of the Mlssouil can
didate to be prepared for the opposition
which always concentrate d against the
foremost candidate. Speeches were mode
also by representatives from Indian Ter-
rltoiy , Utah , Arizona , New Mexico ,
Oklahoma and Colorado. They were uni
formly enthusiastic and volcvl the senti
ment that Bland was such an exponent of
silver as to moke him the strongest and
most available candidate In the western
s'a'cs '
Ono of the strongest speeches was made
by "Buck" Hlnrlchscn of the Illinois dele
gation , who Is regarded as next to Governor
Altgeld In Influence * In that delegation. He
spoke strongly In favoi of Bland and ex
pressed the opinion that the forty -eight
votes of Illinois would bo given to the Mis
souri candidate. No action was taken beyond
hearing the icports of the various states and
exchanging congratulations on what the
Bland managers regarded as a most favor
able showing They pointed out In particular
that the caucus was representative of the
western states and that besides thcbc , Bland
had a largo following In the south.
The sentiment was that the delegates of
the west , having thus , met In caucus and ox.
prebscd their preferences , should now exert
their Influence upon the delegates of the
south , with a view to persuading them that
the west and the bouth united could com
mand the situation The meeting adjoin ncd
lo meet again at 10 o'clock tonight , at which
trine further accessions were expected It
was explained that the two Dakotas and
California weie not represented by reason
of the fact that the delegations from these
states had not caucused The Bland man
agers aie confident , however that these
states will Join with the othcib which have
Indicated a preference for Bland. Somu
question was raised as to whether the ex
pressions given at the caucus could bo relied
upon as showng ) the tendency of the various
states represented.
Secretary Dushiel sald positively after ( he
cauclis' thai the expressions In each" case
vvero not those of Individual delegates , but
correctly stated the" position of the various
states , either as the result of a caucus or of
instructions. In some of the states repre
sented , however. It Is evident the full dele
gation cannot be claimed with posltiveness
for Bland Oregon has Governor Pcnnoyer
for its first choice , and there are said to be
scattered votes for other candidates than Mr
Dland from several of the states represented
at this caucus. Before the meeting eloped
Senator Martin rend a letter just received
from San Francisco stating that a club of
1,000 democrats and populists had been or
ganized , favorable to the candidacy of
"Dick" Bland for the presidency and also
favoring Senator Teller for secretary of the
treasury in a Bland cabinet. This sugges
tlon of Teller In Bland'K cabinet evoked a

encouraged by the reports received today
from their scouts and skirmishers who
have been canvassing the incoming dele
gations. They declare Boles has developed
a great dc.il of unexpected strength and
that he is the second choice of two-thirds
of the silver delegates. They are sensible
of the rise In Bland stock , but they say that
Dland will never bo nblo to secure two-
thirds of the convention , indicating that
the Boles men will not favor the- abroga
tion of the two-thirds rule. The Boles men
think the prejudice against the selection
of a southern man will operate against
Bland and prevent his nomination. The
Doles men say that as soon as It heroines
apparent that Bland cannot bo nominated
Boles will then be selected.

CHICAGO , July r. The democratic na
tional convention Is not only In n quandary
as to who shall bo selected for president ,
but it has a still higher fence to Jump In
the matter of the selection of officers to
preside over the temporary and permanent
organizations The latter oillcer mny bo se
lected without much trouble If the selection
ot the temporary chairman can be satis
factorily arranged Senator Hill Is the
choice of the national committee llo Is
also the one man from thu cast of national ,
prominence who U willing to test his popu
larity before the convention It has been
said by the gold men that the sllve-r friends
of Senator HIM in both house and senate ,
many of whom are delegates to the con-
volition , would have sulllclent stiength and
would use their Influence to secure his
election as temporary chairman If ho should
bo named , but It Is now well understood
that the silver men will not vote for any
body but a silver man tor chairman. !
During the day many silver men who are
friends of Senator Hill have called upon ,
him and urged him not to allow his nnmo
to bo used by the n Uloiml eommlttco and
not to place himself In a position whcro
he might be humiliated by being defeated.
They have assured him that they have a
high regard for him and that It will bo
disagreeable to them to have to vote against
him , but the situation Is such that they
must have a bllvcr man to make the first
speech of the * convenllon Senator Hill has
advised all thobo who culled upon him to
pursue a conscivatlvo course He has ex
pressed the belief that If the convention
adopts a silver platform there will surely
be n bolt , and ho thinks that If conserva
tism Is bhown the bolt will be much re
duce J
TO AVOID A BOLT.
It Is understood that Senator Hill bo-
llcves that In cabo the convention should
biistuln the national committee In the se
lection for temporary chairman , the
bolt from Nev\ York btate and possibly ,
some other sections of the eabt will bo
greatly minimized. The silver men do not
fear that Senator Hill will bolt , but under
the Instiuctlons of the democratic conven
tion of New York , if a majority should de
cide to bolt or to take no further part la
the piocccdlngs after the adoption of the
silver plank , Senator Hill , who has en
dorsed this unit lule , would be compelled
to nbido by the result.
While Senator Hill Is cotibtantly advising
conseivattsm on the pait of llio bllvcr men ,
lie hab given no pledges that ho would mnko
a conservative bpcech If selected to prcsldp
over the convention. W. K. Shcchan , menj-
bci of the national committee from New
Yoik and ono of the closest pcisonal friends
of Senator Hill In that state , was asked IJ
Senator Hill was bolectcd for temporary
chairman it ho would inako a conservative
speech and not ono which would bo obnox-i
Ions to the silver men. Mr. Shcchan re ?
piled : "Senator Hill , If selected temporary
chairman ot the convention , will make a
' ' " Sheehan asked how- )
'gold' speech. Mr. was
he regauled Scnatoi HIH'b chances for th
place and declared he did not believe the
silver men would tuin him down If ho waft
selected by the national committee.
Senator Hill Is very much under the Im
pression that he will be elected If selected
by the national committee , although every ,
delegation from the south and west which
has arrived today has joined In the dec-
la ! atlon previously mode by ( he bllvcr men
on the ground that they would not accept
anybody but a silver man for temporary
chairman. ,
The pleas of the scnatoilal fi lends ot Mr.
Hill asking him not to place them In the
position of voting against him have been al
most pathetic. Nearly every silver demq-
cratlc senator Is hero as a delegate from
his btate. While Hill has opposed thenjij
not only on the silver question , but upon
many other questions , notably the Income-
tax , yet they regard him as n manly flghtop
and have a great deal of admiration for him.
Ho has never counseled a bolt from a na
tional convention and has ( severely crlll-
cUcd any body of the party which tolerated ,
a bolt.
It was known during the tariff fight that
homo 111 feeling grow out of a scene In the
senate bclween Hill and Joe Blackburn ,
still near the close of the last session of con
gress Hill made a vigorous speech In the
senate supporting Carlisle on the bond U ;
sues , but took occasion to severely crltlclsa
Carlisle and the friends of Carlisle In Ken
tucky bccaube they did not bupport Black
burn for bcnator after ho had iccelvcd tht
caucus nomination. In that Bpcecch Hill
said there are greater Issues than the cur
rency question and that the democratic party
should not divide on the question of slhct ?
and currency.
SILVUH MEN AVI'HiCIATIVn.
The silver men appreciated that speech
and they do not expect that Hill will bolt
when n 10 to I platform Is adopted. Hill
maintains In his conversation with the e\r \
vcr delegations who have called upon him
that they are not following the lines of his
argument used In the scnuto on that occa
sion , because they are silhonllnatlng every
other Irsue to the bllvcr < iuc fUlon solely.
The silver men say this Issue has got be
yond anything else In the dcmociatlc party ,
and the lenders who are here , even It they
were dlspowcd to btand by Senator Hill as
temporaly chairman , would find It Impossi-
bln to control the delegation from their
titntch , who are deteimined that none but a.
1C to 1 man shall piesldu , 'Hint the ( selec
tion of n bllvcr man for temporary chairman
Is assurr-d there HCCIIIH no quest ion of doubu
But In the selection ot fuieh a man Is whert
the bllvcr men art ! at sea. They want ft
man who will control the convention ana
will maKe hlnibclf felt , but there Is some
dlfllculty In mhklng a selection ,
Scnatoi White of California , who Is a
member of the delegation fiom that state ,
la one of the best presiding olllcers that
could bo found , but ho will not allow him
self to bo put up for the purpose of defeating
mid , as ho expressed It , humiliating him.
Ho will not allow his nama tu be used as a
candidate for temporary chairman If the na
tional committee should name HID for the
place. Mr. U'httu presided ovci the tern-
ponuy convention In 1S88 and was most ac
ceptable , ho Ib Htrong In voice and consti
tution , and in eveiy way kept the conven
tion moving and free from ronflfslnii. But
Ha It fcccmH piactlcally settled that Hill Is
to bo selected by the national committee
White cannot bo considered as a possibility
for tcmpoiaiy chairman. It Is qulto possi
