LOUISVILLE , Ky. , June 1. When the aft ernoon session of the second day's meeting of the Ohio Valley League of Bimetallic clubs convened at MacAuloy'a theater to day almost every delegate was In his seat. There was also a marked Increase In the attendance of visitors The three guber natorial aspirants , Hon. William Goebol , Hon. P. Wat Hardln and HonV J. Stone were on the afternoon program for speeches. This fact lent considerable Interest to this session of the convention. Each candidate had his adherents In the audience ready to shout and show their appreciation of any word of wisdom. Judge James P. Tarvln of Covlngton , Ky. . presided His gavel fell promptly at 2 o'clock , when the convention came to order. Following the outline of a plan which had been adopted at a meeting of the executive committee of the Ohio Valley League of Bimetallic clubs at the Gait house this morning the following resolution was Intro duced by General E B. Flnlcy of Ohio : Resolved , That with a view of taking measures to thoroughly organize for the campaign of 1900 a committee be selected f which the president of this association hnll b < > a member. That said comnrrtteo 10 requested to co-operate with the na- lonal committee In perfecting n thorough irganlzatlon of the democratic part- hroughout all the states and territories of he United States , the president of this as- oclatlon to name the committee. Aiixlllnr > Committee , Judge Tarvln , by virtue of the authority ested in him by this resolution , especially landed In us uis selection for the commlt- ee the following John P. Altgeld , Illinois ; Fred Williams , Massachusetts , W. J. Overmcyet , Indiana ; W. J. Semonln , Keu- ucky ; Allen W. Clarke , Indiana , and James ? . Tarvln , Kentucky. The first speaker on the program for the afternoon session was Hon. P. Wat Hardln of Mercer countjHe was greeted with ounds of hearty applause. The speaker est no time In getting down to a dlicusslon of the financial question. He dealt with ho Issues that arise therefrom , from the : Imo money was first circulated as a stand ard of value , and In a brief history brought ils topic down to the present day. He said hat wherever money circulated there weie bound to be some existing evils , either di rectly or Indirectly resulting from a nation's Inanclal sjstem and their too frequent mis management. Hon. William E. Goebel of Covlngton fol- o\ved Mr. Hardln briefly. He said that the democratic party In the selection of n presi dential candidate for 1900 need look no fur- her than William J. Bryan and the Chicago cage platform. The trust Issue , he thought , was of secondary Importance to the ques tion of bimetallism and one which , under the changes which bimetallism would pro duce on the nation , would be of easy solu tion. tion.After After Mr. Goebel Hon. William J. Stone made a speech , covering in substance nearly the same ground previously gone over by Mr. Hardln and Mr. Goebel , Invoking the adherence and assistance of all good demo crats to the principles of 1896. At the conclusion of Mr. Stone's address the convention adjourned for supper. The light for the next meeting place for the Bimetallic League clubs Is growing warm. The cities In contest already are Chicago , Indianapolis , Columbus and Zanes- vlllo. Iloonlcr State Milken Stnnil. President Marvin called the night session to order at S o'clock and introduced the Hon. Henry Warrum ot Indiana. Ho opened by saying that he brought good greeting from the Hoosler state , that the democracy of Indiana had remained steadfast In Its deter mination to have the principles as enunci ated In the Chicago platform prevail and that it would continue until bimetallism has been successful1. We shall go into the next campaign , " said Mr Warrum , "not on the defensive , but on the aggressive ; wo shall not go into the next campaign with the odium of mis management , but the republicans will. " Ho contended that the business Improve ment of which the opposition boasts has been simply a fluctuation which Koines to any government and that this Is not the substan tial , lasting kind. The speaker directed his remarks to the proposed elimination of the financial ques tion from the next national democratic platform , claiming that it was the work of designing politicians who wished to surren der the principles of democracy , supplanting the money question. He said the Imperial policy was not the policy of the American people and he quoted Lincoln In saying that this country could not exist half free and [ half slave and that wo could not exist half colonies and half sovereign states. The committee on constitution recom mended an amendment to the constitution by the election of two vice presidents from each of the four states and that the officers and executive committeemen elected by this convention serve until the close of 1901. It was adopted. The committee on officers for the ensuing year made the following report , which was unanimously adopted : President , James P. Tarvln , Kentucky ; i vice presidents , F.

COLUMBUS , 0. , Juno 1. This has been a Daugherty day , as much ns jcstorday was a Nash day. The conferences continue , however , and the field may next turn on Uaugherty. There Is as jet no winning slate and there are- those who bellevo that no winning com bination can be formed mull after the test of baMoUng. The committee on rules and order of business tonight limited nil nomi nating speeches to flvo mlutes , with only one seconding speech of one minute , In an ticipation of the convention running late Into I'rlday night or being continued over .o Saturday. The committee , on permanent organization decided to report In favor of making the omporary organization permanent. This will alee save time. As the temporary or- anizatlon was selected by the old state cen- .ral committee nnd was known as favorable to Daugherty this action was claimed as one ot n series of Daugherty victories of the day , but It Is believed that this action waa duo to the fact that Mr. Kerr not only made a captivating speech today , but also an excellent presiding ofllcer. Among the features of the day were the speeches at the hotels that were bitter nnd lellant and those nt the convention that were all for harmony The leaders vvho lolned Uio chorus at the auditorium from 4 to 6 p. m. In a sort of peace Jublloe , how ever , spout the night In contests and sessions that were not very harmonious. While M. H. Daugtierty has appaicntly had the best of It all day , at the conferences In the morning , at the selection of committeemen - men , In the demonstrations at the conven tion and in the proceedings of the commit tees tonight , jet ho has odds only as the leading candidate and not jet ns a winner. Nash w 111 bo a close second and Lieutenant Governor A. W. Jones a much closer third than has been anticipated up until tonight. In the field H. M. Nevln of Das ton Is loom ing up , while none of the others seem to be gaining outside of their respective dis tricts. Combine In Ciiniliernnnic. Whllo the forces of Cox , Daugherty and Kurtz combined against Nash todaj , as the Hannn candidate , In all the preliminary work , yet this combine cannot apparently got together on any one man for governor. Cox -wants a dark horbe and Is grooming Shattuc till he names his favorite. Poraker wants Jones. Kurtz does not want Jones or Daugherty if he can get tome one ho Hkea better. Meantime Daugherty Insists that he has more votes than Jones , Cox and Kurtz command , that they should come to him ilf they want to defeat Nash , and thereby Indlrectlj- defeat Hanna. It is in tills complication that Nevln is likely to be brought out. Daughcrtj ; Is not only a leader In the pros pective balloting , but he also has the best organization of any of the candidates. Ex- Ohalrman Huling , who opened thi conven tion , and Chairman Kerr , who presided , are both for Daugherty and all of those at the Btato headquarters are actively In the- con vention for him. Ho has workers all about him here. Senator Hanna and Judge Nash , as "wo'l " ' as manj' others , have been surprised at his organization. The new state committee tonight elected Vivian J. Fagin chairman and P. W. Durr secretary and will meet here Juno 17 for permanent organization. Contention Ciilleil to Order. The convention assembled hhoitly after 4 p. m. and before 0 p. m. adjourned till 10 a. m. tomorrow so as to allow the commit tees to meet tonight. The auditorium In which the convention met has a seating capacity of 6,000 and standing room was at a premium. With the elaborate decorations the auditorium pre sented a magnificent bpectacle. The fac tional fight has attracted the largest attend ance from the different > ounties that ever attended an Ohio convention. Hon. Cyrus Huling , as chairman of the state central committee , called the conven tion to order , when the Republican Glee club rendered several selections. There were demonstrations ns Senators H.mna nnd Por- akor and others entered the hall and the glee club commanded such attention as to se cure order. Rev. S S. Palmer offered prajcr , after which Chairman Huling in part said "Tho republicans of Ohio are deeply In terested this jear. They feel that the pros perity of the country , the expansion of our commerce and the honor of the flag they love depend upon the indorsement of William Mc Klnley this year by the triumphant election of the candidates nominated at this con vention and his rcnominatlon and re-eler- tlon next jear to the high place he now holds. "Tho people love McKlnley for his kindly ways , his firmness In action , his wis dom In council and they love his policy be cause they have seen it revive Industry , awaken confidence and restore the honor of the flag. "As a corollary to this the republicans of Ohio demand that the voice of faction shall be stilled. The success of the party and Its principles Is a thousand fold more Important to them than the success of any man. "Let the people untrammeled decide pub lic questions and erect their candidates and they will do it aright. "I bellovo I kno-w the sentiment of the republicans of Ohio In this matter and If I should utter the prayer that Is at this mo ment uppermost In their minds It would bo a prayer that those hero assembled should 1 > y no act or word put in jeopardy the pros perity of this land or the glory of the flag , but that all may bo so done that when this convention adjourns It shall be the firm resolution of every republican hero nnd throughout Ohio to triumphantly eleot this ticket hero nominated.
