James (jriftin Carlyle, of

NBW YORK, Feb. 24. -The World, in
An editorial headed "February and
June," says Senator Hill has secured a
delegation from this state favorable to
liig nomination for the presidency. The
February point to this game of politics
has been scored, but what about the far
greater contest in June? There are
forty-three other states yet to be heard
from, and oven iu two months from
now the real fight for the nomination
will be hardly begun. Senator Ilill has
secured a delegation 120 days in advance
of the national convention. What will
he do with it? It can hardly le shipped
to Chicago to await the meeting of the
great convention. The delegates can
scarcely be forbidden to read the news
papers until after they have voted, like
the jurors in a capital case. A great
many things are certain to'happen dur
ing the next four months which will
materially influence and probably deter
mine the choice of a Democratic candi
date for president. The adoption of in
structions reaching no farther than the
presentation of a name to the conven
tion leaves the delegation free, though
elected in February to meet the require
ments of the situation in June. And
that would mean success' for the party
in November. The next president must
be a Democrat, and the national conven
tion must be trusted to nominate a
candidate who can be elected.
Favor* Western Man.
The Herald says: "Hill has the ma
chine, but a very large number of Dem
ocrats are yet to be convinced that he
has the people. All this show of power
is well enough in its way, but the party
of the state has a very bitter feud on its
hands, and the aggressive policy of Mr.
Hill has excited a Democratic opposi
tion which renders the vote of Novem
ber uncertain for himself, though it
drives Cleveland out of the field. Mr.
Hill has furnished the strongest possible
argument in favor of the position taken
,iy The Herald months ago. We then
said, and have since found no occasion
to change our mind, that the nominee
for the presidency should not hail from
New York. A Western man who has
also the respect of the South—a man
like Watterson, for instance—with Hill
for second place, would be certain to
carry New York and the country. The
Democrats of this state, now divided
into factions and losing no opportunity
to knife each other, would unite on such
a ticket and carry the banner to un
doubted victory. Let New York re3t
for a while on the honors already
earned. Give some other section a
chance, esiecially if by choosing from
this state the victory of 1 he party is to
be imperilled, as it certainly would be.
Why not Watterson and Hill?"
Will Never Nominate Hill.
The Times says: "Unquestionably the
actual sentiments of a majority of the
Democratic electors of the State of New
York were expressed Monday, not in
the proceedings of Mr. Hill's conven
tion, but in the speeches, the addresses,
and the action of the convention of pro
testing Democrats held also in Albany
at the same time. That the work of the
convention, with its body of instructed
delegates, will lead to the nomination of
Mr. Hill for the presidency, is a notion
too absurd to be entertained for a mo
ment. The Democratic convention at
Chicago will not nominate Mr. Hill. It
conceivably may 'go West' for its can
didate, or South, or to the Pacific coast,
or if comes East or to New York, it will
come for a man better known and more
respected than David B. Hill."
The sun makes no comment on the
Albany convention.
May Occur to Hill Later,
The Tribune says: "The action of the
midwinter convention leaves Hill master
of the situation, so far as the 'regular'
state convention, acting under the 'reg
ular' call of the state committee can
make Hill master. But, unless all sign®
fail, the anti-Hill movement is rapidly
gaining strength, and has already be
come serious enough to become a fac
tion. If they force the fighting the anti
Hill men can speedily destroy Hill a
presidential possibility. Let it be under
stood that two delegations are to appear
at Chicago and where will Hill be? It
may occur to Hill, on reflection,that the
midwinter convention was too smart a
trick by half."
Declares for Hill.
LOUISVILLE, Ky.,Feb. 24. —The Louis
ville Post (Democratic) proclaims for
Hill for the presidential nomination.
After calling attention to his splendid
leadership and his ability to carry New
York, it declares that Hill and success
are far better than Cleveland and
defeat.

Ha Thinks Carlisle Would Wear

LOULSVILLK, Feb. 24. -In The CoTtrier
Jonrnal. under the head, "The Square
Issue," Mrr Watterson, after saying,
that the Democrats of New Yotk*
nave 0pti! en through the regular ana
lawful channels appointed for party ex
pression. and David Bennett Hill is
formally presented to his fellow Demo
crats of the United States as the choice
of the Democrats of the Empire state
for prwnlent, the question before the
country incomes one of ayes and noes,
for who ^er is preferred over this nom
ination 'Must beat Mr. Hill," concludes
as folio®V
There thousands of Democrats, who,
recogim,ng the hopelessness or the case,
may co&sent to the loss of Mr. Cleve
land, b|i they will not accept Mr. Hill.
The tradition is too abrupt the wrench
is too 'ent. The disaster of 1888,
howuve* wrongfully ascribed to Mr.
Hill, r*,iJ:leR in many a memory. If
notnnaa1-",1 for president, Mr. Hill would
carry it through the canvass as a wound
upon bis- sword arm which would cer
tainly impair his fencing, if it did not,
in the il, prove fatal to his candidacy.
The political world is very exacting
and very just. It recognir.es in its real
leaders "both inspiration and equipment,
and blindly follows, but the least of its
leaders must be available, and the hand
which lias proved itself so puissant in
destroying Mr. Cleveland we fear has
destroyed itself. To th* nomination,
therefore, put forward by the Demo
crats of the Hmpire state we must re
spectfully and for the reasons given
vote no.: and we offer as a snlstitute
John Gnflin Carlisle, of Kentucky, next
in succ ssiun to Grover Cleveland as the
leader and embodiment of the great
issue of revenue reform, and in eminence
of abilities and services, and in personal
integriiy, altogether worthy to wear his
mantle and entirely large enough to
fill it.
ADOPTED A PLATFORM.

NWr YORK, Feb. 24.—At 4:15
credentials,
p. m.
Temporary Chairman Beebe called the
Democratic convention to order and
Daniel Griffin presented the re
port of
the
committee on
which was
adopted.
John E. Dayton made the report of the
committee on permanent organization,
naming General Sickles for permanent
chairman. The report was adopted and
General Sickles
was
introduced amid
loud and continued applanse. After
the applause had subsided General
Sickles thanked the convention for the
honor conferred in choosing him to
preside, and proceeded to arraign the
Republican party for the McKinley
tariff bill, the force bill and extrava
the conduct of the country's
business. Referring to Senator Hill
and the presidency, the general said:
We shall present the name of a gallant
leader whose banner is inscribed with
many victories, and under whom the
Democracy of New York never has been
and never will be defeated a leader who
was elected to the senate of the I'nited
States without the expenditure of a dol
lar leader we love because the euemies
of the Democratic party hate and fear
him a leader in whom the veteran sol
dier* of Xew York have always found a
steadfast friend a leader whose success is
always the triumph of his party a leader
WTIOM* relation t» the presidency of the
l'nit»d States would jive to the whole
people an administration guided and di
rected iu all o? its measures by the prin
ciples, the policy and the traditions of
Jefferson and Jackson.
Every point in General Sickles' speech
was applauded vigorously. The men
tion of Senator Hill's name at its con
clusion was the signal for round after
round of applause. Mr. Sulser, from
the committee on resolutions, presented
the report of that committee which was
read by the secretary as follows:
The Platform.
The Democratic party of the state of
New ork in convention assembled re
news th« pledge of it* fidelity to the great
cause of tariff reform, and to ihe whole
Democratic faith and tradition, as af
firmed in our national platforms from
187tf to 1889, as well as in our state plat
forms concurrent with the opening of
Governor Tildeu's brief, and the close of
Governor Hill's long, thrice approved and
alike illustrious service in the chief mag
istracy of the Empire state.

We steadfastly adhere
to the principles

We are against the coinage of any silver
dollar which is not of the intrinsic valuo
of ever/ other dollar of the United States.
We, therefore, denounce the new Sher
man silver law, under which one-tenth of
our gold stock has leen exported and all
our silver output has leen dammed up at
home, not only as a false yreteuse, but an
actual hindrance of the return to a free bi
metallic coinage and as tending only to
produce a changc from one kind of mono,
metalisiu to another.
We therefore unite with the friends of
honest money everywhere iu stigmatizing
the Sherman progressive silver basis law
as no solution of the gold and silver ques
tion, and as a fit appendix to tbo subsidy
and bounty swindle, the McKinley worse
than-war tariff, the Blaine reciprocity
humbug, the squandered surplus, the ad
vancing deficit, the defective census ahd

After reviewing the record of the
Democratic party in New York the
resolutions strongly urge Governor Hill
as the next Democratic presidential can
didate, expressing confidence in hie
ability to lead the party to victory.
Governor Flower also comes in for a share
of commendation. At tho reading of
the resolution instructing the delega
tion to present the name of Senator
Hill there was prolonged applause. At
the close of tho reading, the resolutions
were unanimously adopted.
After the adjournment Senator Hill
held an impromptu reception on the
stage of the convention hall.
