The Platform Closely Follows the Lines of McKinley's Speech at Chicago. Counnua, O., March It.—1ThsGrand Opera House was unable again to give admission to more than half of those holding tickets and wearing badges with McKinley's picture thereon. i-ome of the delogute* to the Repub lican state COD rent ion, which was to have assembled at 10 a. m., were crowded out. With u heavy snow fall ing, standing room on the outside was »ot desirable, and there was much com plaint about the capacity of the hall. WILLIAM M'KINLBT It was 10:15 o'clock when Sena tor-elect Foraker called the convention to order. At that time the stage was crowded with Ohio congressmen and other party leaders. The temporary organization of the convention was unanimously mad9 the permanent organization, when Chair nan Foraker briefly acknowledged the double honor and proceeded with busi ness. i Colonel W. C. Cooper of Mount Ver non, ex-member of congress, was then introduced and presented, in an elo quent and stirring speech, the names of Governor Asa S. Bushnell, Senator elect J. B. Foraker, Congressman C. H. Grosvenor and Hon. Mark A. Hanna tor delegates ut large from Ohio to the St. Louis convention, at the same time ollering a resolution instructing them to vote and work for the nomination of McKinley for pres dent. Congressman Charles H. Grosvenor presented the names of I. F. Mack, ed itor of the Sandusky Register and Hon. Albert C. Douglas, Jr., of Chillicothe, who were nominated for electors at large. Tim MrKlnlry i'Jatfurm. The platform presented to the con vention was largely a reproduction of Governor McKinley's Chicago speech, With changes to suit the occasion. The principles there enunciated were not materially altered. It is as follows: The Republicans of Ohio congratulate the people of the country i.pon the growth of Republican sentiment, as ev idenced by the signal victories of the last three years,which assuro a glorious triumph in the coming election. We denounce the Democratic admin istration as the most destructive and disastrous the history of our country has ever known. It has not only dis appointed the expectations of the coun try, but has justly forfeite 1 the confi dence and support of its own party. We affirm our adherence to the prin ciples of the Republican party as de fined by the national convention in 1892. Arc Wedded to Protection. "We are faithfully wedded to the great principle of protection by every tie of party fealty and affection, and it is dearer to us now than ever before. It has more devoted supporters among the great masses of the American peo ple, irrespective of party, than at any previous period in our national history. It is everywhere recognized and en dorsed as the great, masterful, tri umphant American principle, a key to our prosperity in business, the safest prop to the treasury of the United States, and the bulwark of our national independence and financial honor. We denounce the present tariff law as the sublimated product of Demo cratic ignorance and incompetency, bringing, as it has to a prosperous and happy people, a period of unprece dented adversity and distress, from which nothing bat a, return to the policy of protection can relieve it. We denounce the free wool provision of the present tariff law as an unjust -discrimination against an important industry, and against a large part of onr people and demand such protection for sheep husbandry as will secure fair prices for American wool. Wkit the Party M»»4a The Republican party stands for reciprocity that reciprocates, and which does not yie.d up to another country a •ingie day's labor that belongs to the American workingman. It stand* i for ESTABLISHED 1890. MADISON, SOUTH DAKOTA, THURSDAY, MARCH 12, '189B. international agreements which get as much as they give, upon terms of mu tual advantage. It stands for a foreign poiicy dictated by and imbued with a spirit that is genuinely American for a policy that will revive the national traditions ana restore the national spirit which carried us proudly through the earlier years of the century. It stands for such a policy w»th all foreign nations as will insure to them and us justice, good faith, dignity and honor. It stands for the Monroe doctrine as Monroe himself proclaimed. It standu for a commercial policy that will whiten every sea with the sails of American vessels, flying the American flag, and that will proteot that flag whorever it floats. It stands for a fiscal policy opposed to debts and deficits in time of peace, and favors the return of the government to a debt paying policy, and Opposes the continuance of the debt making policy. It is too plain for argument that the public credit and commercial interests of the country require the revonues of the government to be amply sufficient for the public expenditures at all times without danger of deficit, and to that end congress should, without delay, make due uuv.sion. Hm Financial 1'lank. We contend for hoiost money for a currency of gold, silver and paper, with which to measure our exchange, that, shall he as sound as the government and as untarnished as its honor, and to that end we favor bimetallism, and de mand the use of both gold and silver as standard money, either in accordance with a ratio to be fixed by an interna tional agreement, if that can be ob ta ned, or under such restrictions and such provisions to be determined by legislation, as will secure the mainten ance of the parities of the values of tho, two metals, so that the purchasing and debt paying power of the dollar, whether of silver, gold or paper shall be at all times equal. We denounce the present administra tion of the pension bureau for its be trayal of the interests of the Union soldiers, and we pledge anew to the veterans of the republic a watchful care and recognition of their just tlaims upon a grateful people. Hoour Other Favorite SOB*. We honor the eminent sons of other states, whose splendid services and high character have justified their presenta tion to the American people as candi dates for the presidency, and we assure Republicans everywhere that whoever may lead the Republican hosts, Ohio will contribute her share to the swell ing tide of victory in November. The people of Ohio take satisfaction in the expressions, coming from every section of our common country, of pop ular approval of their distinguished fellow citizen, William McKinley. The great advocate of protection, who has all his'life stood for America, its factories, its farms, its firesides, finds his reward in the confidence and affec tion of the people whose interests have been his constant care. The Republi cans of Ohio pledge him anew the absolute, loyal and unswerving support of his state at the national convention, and instruct the delegates chosen to represent Ohio to redeem this pledge.

IN OLD KA.INTUCK Senators Retaliate For the Un seating of a Democrat in., the House By Unseating Two Republicans in the Upper Branch of the Legislature. At Last Accounts There Was Likely to Be Some Serious Trouble. FRANKFORT, Ky., March IS.—There is again great excitement here orer the election of a United States senator to succeed Blackburn. The house, almost immediately upon convening, unseated Kauffman, (Democrat), and in retalia tion the senate voted to oust Walton and James. There was great confusion in both houses. Senator Walton declared that the proceedings were revolutionary, and that he would not submit. Senator Bronston denounced him and swore that neither James nor Walton should ever get in the joint assembly to vote. Only prompt interference of friends prevented a personal difficulty. A crowd is at the door of the house cham ber to prevent the entrance of either James or Walton. Kerlous Trouble Seem* Unavoidable. Many men are armed, and the slight est outburst may precipitate a tragedy. Dr. James succeeded in leaving the senate chamber before its vote to un seat him was taken, and entered the house. Senator Walton was not so fortunate, and he is refused admission. On one side of the door leading to the house chamber stands the sergeant- at arnis of the senate, Jack Chinn, Jim Williams and several others. The crowd in the corridors and belcw in the hallways, is greatiy excited and hard to restrain. The Democratic leaders now claim that as two senators have been unseated in the senate, and the house has not yet seated Dunlap, who was contesting Kauflfman's seat, that they will elcct a senator.
