' ' . i ' at 10:52. The buzz or thousands of voices gradually- subsided and tho deleuates took their seats. The New England delegations with the exception of a few stragglers had not. arrived. The New York delega tion, however, headed by lllll and Whitney, were In' their places. At the minutes before 11 o'clock Rev. 0 1 een, of Cedar Rapids, lit., who made the opening prayer yesterday, again performed the same olllcc. When the prayer was concluded, Senator White handed the gavel to Congressman Richardson, of Tennes see, who announced that the commit tee on resolutions were ready to report and called to platform Senator Jones, of Arkansas, to make tho committee's report. The elTect of the reading would have been hotter, had the Southern senator controlled a stronger voice. The silver ranks raised to cheer when some of them heard the words "we demand the free and un limited coinage of both gold and sil ver." One enthusiast demanded that the passage be re-read, which was done. Jones said ho was hoarse, Indeed, his voice, two or three times nearly failed him. As the delegates could not hear much from the platform, most of Its points fell unchecrcd, but the denun ciation of tho government Interfer ence by Injunction, which is taken as an indirect approval of Governor Altgeld's course, during tho Chicago strike, met with recognition. When tho plank, expressing sym pathy with Cuba, had been read tho Hag of the now Republic, with blue nnd white and a single star on a red field was carrtcd along the aisles, It did not nrouso as much of a demon stration as the partisans of Cuba had hoped It would. Richardson rapped on the desk and cried "put down that Hag." So It dropped from sight. It was evidently u tired convention. It seemed Impossible to stir tho con course with any enthusiasm. Tho reading of the platform was con cluded without any marked applause. Then tho report of the minority was read by J. H. Wade, or Ohio. T1IK MINOMTY RIU'OIIT. Chicaoo, July 0. Following Is a minority report on tho platform for the money plank: "Wo declare our belief that the ex periment on the part of tho United States alone, of tho f rco coinage of silver and change of tho existing standard of value, independent of action or other great nations, would not only Imperil our chances, but It would retard; or entirely prevent tho establishment of International bi metallism, to which tho efforts of the .government should bo steadily di rected. It would placo tho country upon a silver basis and Impair con tracts, disturb business, diminish tho purchasing power of the wages of labor and Inlllct irreparable evils up on our nations commerce and Industry. Until International co operation among tho leading nations for tho freo coinage of slver can be secured, wo favor tho rigid mainte nance of the existing gold standard, as essential to tho preservation of our credit. Tho redemption or our public pledges and keeping Inviolate our country's honor, wo Insist thut all our paper and silver currency shall be kept at a parity with gold. The Democratic party Is the party of hard money and opposed to legal tender payment as part of our perma nent llnanclal system and wo there fore, favor gradual retirement and cancellation of all United States and treasury notes, under such legislative provisions as will prevent undue con traction. Wo hold that the national credit shall bo resolutely maintained at all times and under all circum stances. The minority also feel that the re port of- the majority Is defective, In falling to make any recognition of the honesty and economic course, fidelity of the present Democratic admin Istra- Children Cry for Pitcher' Castoria, tlon, and they therefore .olTer tho following declaration n's In amend ment to majority repert: "We commend the IJonlsty and economic course nn.l lldellly of the present Democratic national admin istration. HILL TALKS. When Hill 'ascended the platform there was great cheering, j Hill says If Tillman Is a Demoorntl nm a mug wump. Cheers. Hill says fyls mission is to unite and not divide.' Cheers. He asks need ho defend New York and her citizens. Cries of l"No, No." He says New York Is tho Gibraltar of Democracy. Ho savs It Is jiot a ques tion of patriotism. It's a Question of business and llnanco and economy. The convention should only declare In favor or International bimetallism. CuiCAao, July O.Dollnlte results arc today expected from Ithc Demo cratic national convention certainly on platform and probablyj on candi dates unless a deadlock develop. It Is to be a battle of great ohitory with Initial appearance of such figures as Senator Illll of New Yerk: Tillman of South Carolina; Joni'soj-Arkiinsas; Vilas of Wisconsin and Gray of Del aware. The outlook Is fora vote lato 1 n the day, probably about 0 o'clock, then a recess untlll evening, when noiimlnattng speeches, and probably balloting will begin. No dcllnlto line of action has been agreed upon by the gold men, but the Individual members of New York and other eastern dolc catlons, freely express tho Intention of either quitting tho convention hall when the silver platform Is adopted, or announcing their puposc not to support tho candidates. It has become practically certain that no onrnnlzcd bolt will occur, as the counsels of Sonator Illll and ex Secretary Whitney hayc prevailed toward a conservative action. A now phase of the two-thirds question has arisen In the possible course of the gold clement to refrain jfrom voting. In that event, parliamentarians dllTor as to whether a nomination must bo made by two-thirds of tho delegates present or two-thirds of those voting. It Is regarded by some leaders as a critical question. Tho delivery of gold votes, 200 or 300 In number, to one of the silver candidates on theory of choosing the least of sovoral evils, might prove de cisive, and give to the gold men an advantage dictating tho nomination. There Is as much uncertainty among candidates on the eve of balloting as beforo tho convention opened. It is significant fact that no figures or es timates strength aro given by tho leaders. Tho gold people roso and cheered but after their outbreaks of yesterday theso efforts were faint. Tho endorse ment of tho Democratic administra tion which Hill had made Is losing. The light for committee resolu tions brought a yell Ironi the gal leries. Senator Ben Tillman, of South Carolina, mounted the stage to open the great debit to In behalf of free coinage. LEAVES IN UISaUST. Ex-Postmnstcr General Blsscll of UufTalo, went homo late yesterday, leaving his alternate to vote for htm. Ho said ho could not stay, after tho Ylolutlou or state rights, In unseating tho Michigan gold men to seat men who had no credentials. UKYAN'S OUATOUY. When Bryan closed tho debate the wildest scene of tho convention en sued. All sliver states carried their banucra to tho Nebraska delegation. Altgeld said it was the finest speech ho ever listened to and added: "I don't know but what it may nominate II rim n " j Hill's motion to endorse minority report was lost. Ayes .103; noes 020; ono'not voting. Received with cheers. Hill's motion endorsing the present Democratic administration resulted as follews: Ayes 354; noes 08, home few not voting. There was so much Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla. confusion during the vote It was Im possible to keep track of it. Hill's motion that If tho free coin age of silver Is not satisfactory In one year, It bo discontinued, was lost by a large viva voco vote. 1'LATKOIIM ADOITHU.

Senator Daniel said considering the occasion and circumstances Bryan's speech was the grearest cITort ho ever listened to. Ho believes Bryan will lie tho nominee.

In the neighborhood are men many of the old Spanish ruins, in the secret cellars of which It Is known that the Cuban Insurgents have from time to lime hidden arms and shipped them olT to Cuba at their leisure, defying the native defectives, who have always failed to locate these store places. Matters stood thus when a few days nfcu Just before daylight an open boat with 11 men arrived Just olT Runaway bay on the north side of tho Island.

The men traveled by road and reached the railroad lino at Ewnrton station. When about to board tho train tho three wcro ar rested by a pollco seargeantnnd taken to Dry harbor.

Tho organization discipline of ti'io Cuban forco left nothing to be desired, and Havana was at their moroy, they said, hut without a licet they could not hold tho clty,and noth ing therefore was to bo gained by an assault upon It lust yet. It was gathered that tho Cuban generals had decided upon a courso of definite action with a view of forcing matters.
