It was suggested by the Governor that

but the family preferred that the body'
remain at the residence in Marietta un
til Its departure for Daiton.
Leander Newton Trammell was born in
Habersham county, June 5, 1830. He ctune
of f|eoteh-Irish s'.ock and had a grand
father in the Revolutionary war. His fa
ther came to Georgia from Union, S. C.,
and settled In Habersham county, where
he lived the life of a farmer. It was here
that Mr. Trammell was born and reared.
At nineteen he entered Hiawassee Col
lege in Tennessee. In 1856, he attended a
law school at Lebanon, Te'nn. In 1861 he
began the practice of law as a member of
the firm of McConnell & Trammell. Ip
the same year he was elected to repre
sent Catoosa county in the Legislature
and In 1863 was re-elected. In March, 1862,
he entered the army as quartermaster,
with ilie rank of captain.
At the close of the war he resumed the
practice of law in Gordon county. He
was a member of the Constitutional Con
vention of 1867 and 1868 and belonged to a
band of fourteen known as Hancock Pa
triots, whose courage saved the state to
In 1870 he was chosen as president of the
Senate. When Gov. Bullock resigned he
became Governor pro tem. or the slate,
but was not allowed to perform the duties
of that oilice. He tvas a Tilden elector in
1876, and a member of the Congressional
Convention In 1877. In 1881 he was presi
dent of the State Democratic Convention,
and in 1882 and 18S3 chairman of the Dem
ocratic Executive Committee.
In ISSI he was appointed to the State
Railroad Commission by Gov. Colquitt.
Since that time he has been successively
reappointed by Govs. Northen and Can
dler, the last appointment being for the
term of six years. In 1890 he was chosen
chairman of the commission.
Col. Trammell was married in 1856 to
Miss Zenobia Barclay. He leaves eight
children, Mrs. Samuel 6. Scott of Atlan
ta, Paul B. Trammell of Atlanta, Mrs.
George L. Morris of Birmingham, Ala.,
TVlldman J. Trammell of Marietta, Mrs.
Walter L. Sessions of Marietta, Mrs.
Prank E. Boston of Atlanta, Mrs. Mar
garet Pomeroy of Marietta, and Leander
Newton Trammell, Jr., of Marietta. He
was a member of the Masonic order and
a prominent member of Ihe Methodist
Col. Trammell's death caused much
sorrow at the Capitol. By order of Gov.
Candler, the State House flag'has been
floating all day at half-mast.
Already there is talk as to who will
succeed Col. Trammell as a member of
the Railroad Commission. The office of
chairman hns a salary of $2,500 a year at
tached, and the appointment Is for six
years, of which one has expired. As the
commissioners select their own chairman,
however, it lies only with the Governor
to appoint a man to fill the vacancy. Col.
Trammell has been chairman on account
of being connected with the commission
longer than Judge Atkinson or Mr. Cren
shaw. so it is very likely that Mr. Cren
shaw will be the next chairman—that is,
If the precedent set forth In the case of
Col. Trammell Is carried out. He has
been a member of the board longer than
Judge Atkinson. -
There have been several names men
tioned for the vacant place already.
Among them are J. Pope Brown of Pu
laski county, president of the State Agri
cultural Society: James Robertson of
Habersham county, who was a member
of the commission before, and Paul Tram
mell. son of the deceased commissioner.
They are not understood to be appli
cants, but are looked upon as suitable
men and possibilities.

Mr. Lewis *atd he was drawn into a
conference held this evening, at which
the Democratic platform, vice presidency
and chairmanship of the National Com
mittee were discussed In turn. “I am
satisfied," said Mr. Lewis, “that Bryan
is opposed to the omission in the finan

Sioux City, la., June 29.—"Mr. Towne,
will you state what you regard as the
strongest reason why you should be nom
inated at Kansas City?” was asked the
Populist vice presidential nominee to
night as he left his train.
"Well," said Mr. Towne, "of cours#,
reasons of that character seem very num
erous and conclusive to me. One strong
consideration in my judgment is this:
"In order to win this election two things
must be done: We must pull together the
forces which in 1896 allied themselves
against the Republican party and we must
go into the camp of the opposition with
a large number of recruits.
“In my judgment the most Important
question at the present moment and the
one destined to overshadow all others in
the discussion of the campaign is the ques
tion of imperialism.
"My name will be presented to the Na
tional Democratic Convenlion and strength
of which I am already assured and the
general feeling of friendliness towards
me by Democrats lead me to declare my
nomination as very probable."
PATTISON IS COY.
A It Hasn’t Been Offered Him He
Does Not Know.
Philadelphia, June 29.—Ex-Gov. Pattison,
whose name has been mentioned as a
vice presidential possibility on the ticket
with William J. Bryan, was interviewed
to-day, just prior to his departure for
Kansas City with the Pennsylvania dele
gates. When asked if he would accept
the nomination If it were tendered him,
“That is hardly a fair question. It haa
not been offered to me, and it is not
likely to be."
Mr. Pattison expressed the opinion
that it is tob early to say who will be
the nominee, and added:
“If New York unites upon a candidate
and presents him to the convention, I be
lieve that the West, particularly, will fall
into line, and that Mr. Bryan's running
mate will be from the Empire State.’*

Kansas City Will Have a Host of
Kansas City, June 29.—Although the ca
pacity of the convention hall is placed at
11,000, and many cannot hope to attend
the sessions of the convention, K does not
seem to deter those who have made up
their minds to come and see what they
can from the outside. Thousands are
scheduled to arrive here on July 4, the
opening day. The railroads centering in
Kansas City, are prepared to run excur
sion trains from points in Missouri, Kan
sas and Nebraska, and it Is expected that
the people who can reach the city by
train, will celebrate Independence Day by
coming to the convention.
Beside this, there will be a great out
pouring from Bryan's state, in order to ex
emplify the enthusiasm that exists there
for him. The entertaining capacity of
Kansas City will be severely taxed, hut
food, drink and a place to sleep is prom
ised every person who may come.

Minister of Marine So Declared In
the Deputies’ Chamber.
Paris, June 29.—1n the Chamber of Dep
uties to-day, during the debate on the gov
ernment's naval programme, the Minis
ter of Marine, M. deLanessan, replying to
criticisms, passed upon the various sizes
of war vessels contemplated, upheld the
government’s idea uiat France needed
battleships to defend the coast, and also
cruisers to defend the colonies. Torpedo
boats and submarine vessels were
useful, he admitted, but they
alone could not protect the coast.
M. dekanessan declared that France
was reinforcing her naval arm, not with
the alms of aggression, but In order to
maintain the economic Interest and nation
al honor of France.
M. Caillaux, minister of finance, who
defended the programme of the govern
ment from a financial viewpoint, said that
the budget, with normal resources, could
meet the fresh saerifldes, amounting to
25,000.000 francs annually, that were re
quired by the measure.
The chamber rejected a counter bill pro
posing td fix the total expenditure at 619,-
000,000 francs, instead of 476,000,000.

THE MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY, JUNE 30, 1900.
PRESIDENT IS CONFIDENT.
He Believes the Situation in China
Washington, June 29.—The President is
quitting Washington for his Canton home
to-night full of confidence that the situa
tion In China has Improved, thought it is
fair to say the members of his
official family do not agree with him in
that conclusion. Indeed, the day’s news,
limited though it was to a single cable
gram from Admiral Kempff and the pre
para4ion of Instructions to Gen. Chaffee,
set out nothing calculated to strengthen
the hopes of the friends of the foreign min
isters and the missionaries, who have now
been silent for fully two weeks.
Kompff's cablegram was a disappoint
ment in his confession that he knew noth
ing of the whereabouts of the missing peo
ple, and there are many expressions of
wonder that neither that officer nor any
of the foreign naval commanders at Taku
have been Ingenious enough to establish
some system of spying so as to learn with
in two weeks what has taken place at
Pekin. Still, it is said at the
navy department that Admiral Kempff
apparently has done as well as any of the
other commanders in getting the news,
and that it would be manifestly unfair to
pronounce criticism of him until all the
facts develop If there has been ar.y
fault. Admiral Remey, who should arrive
at Taku within a week, according to the
short message he sent to-day from Hong
Kong, will make the fact manifest.
Relative to the interesting story that an
international accord has been arrived at
as to the pro tempore settlement of the
Chinese trouble, state department officials
say that while the United States is not a
party to such an agreement, s lf the Euro
pean Powers and Japan to a
understanding on the basts set out, the re
sult should be welcomed by all who have
no selfish designs to satisfy. It is. of
course, not yet possible to predict accur
ately what attitude the United. States
would assume officially towards such a
combination, nor whether the government
could be induced to enter into the common
agreement except with some special reser
vations made necessary by a desire to
preserve the unbroken traditions of the
United States in their relations with for
Secretary Root devoted the afternoon to
the preparation of instructions to Brig.
Gen. Chaffee, who has been assigned to
the command of the troops
ordered to v China, and after a
conference, the President approved
them with only a few verbal changes that
did not alter their general character. Al
though Secretary Root would not make
public the text of Gen. Chaffee’s instruc
tions, he said that, generally speaking,
Gen. Chaffee had been ordered to look out
for the United States In China, to avoid
entangling alliances, to act concurrently
with the other Powers, where it was to
the general interest to do so, and in a
word, to continue the policy that has
marked the actions of the United States
government since the beginning of the
Bgxer troubles in China. These instruc
tions wtil be telegraphed to Gen. Chaffee
at San Francisco in order to reach him

Secretary Root was asked if any more
troops would be ordered to China, and he
replied, "Not yet,” but intimated that

ment in that matter would be governed
entirely by the exigencies of the situa
tion. To-day's instructions are supple

The following statement is published
by’ the War Department:
’’The War Department is In daily re
ceipt of letters and telegrams from all
sections of the country tendering the ser
vices of individuals and organizations in
the event of war between the United
States and China. To all of these there
can be but one reply. By act of Con
gress, March 2, 1899, the President was
authorized to raise a force of not more
than 35,000 volunteers, which volunteer
force 'shall continue in service only dur
ing the necessity therefor, and not later
than June 30, 1901,' And by the act of
April 22, 1899, the volunteer army of the
United States can be maintained only
during the existence of war, and shall be
raised and organized ‘only after Con
gress has or shall have authorized the
President to raise such a force or to call
into the actual service of the United
States the militia of the several states.
“It, therefore, rests with Congress, and
not with the President, to increase the
volunteer force, and while the War De
partment cannot’do other than be grati
fied at these prominent and spontaneous
evidences of patriotism on the part of
the people. It can only reply to each and

no authority qf law for the acceptance
of any volunteer troops other than those
now in the service.”

DniGL SUGGESTS PLANKS.
A Georgia Delegate snlrnltft n Few
to Hi* < oIIrnKMPM.
Atlanta, Ga., June 29. Several sugges
tions for planks in the Democratic plat
form have been framed by Charles Daniel,
delegate from the Fifth District. They
have been submitted to the various mem
bers of the Georgia delegation. Mr. Dan
iel Is in receipt of letters from Hon. Boy
kin Wright, chairman of the delegation,
Hon. L. F. Garrard, who will be the
Georgia member of the Platform Commit
tee, and others, In which they heartily ap
prove his suggestions.
The delegation will no doubt take up a
large number of suggestions from different
members of the delegation*, and on the
wey to Kansas City, it la expected that
the delegates will agree on a general line
of policy as to the platform, and will be
prepared to take a big part in the forma
tion of the document.
Outlines of Mr. Daniel’s suggestions for
planks in the platform follow 7 :
“We are opposed to and condemn in
emphatic terms, the abuse of the writ
of injunction. We deplore the continual
strife between capital and labor, and ap
prove the principle of arbitration in th*
settlement of all laix>r disputes. We be
lieve. in the principle of the eight-hour
working day, and favor the extension of
the existing law 7 to all branches of the
government service, wherever practically.
We recognize the right of working men to
organize and form fraternal and protec
tive associations. We denounce the im
prisonment and punishment, without due
process of law, of hundred® of miners and
citizens of the state of Idaho.
“We favor the extension of the inter
state commerce law so as to empower the
Interstate Commerce Commission to regu
late and control in a legal and proper
manner, the great interstate railroad trade
and commerce of the country, and empow
ering the commission to regulate rates
and to prescribe proper rules for the gov
ernment. of railroad and steamship com
panies for the protection of the general
public. We favor the restriction of the
Sunday movement of freight trains, ex
cept in the transportation of perishable
goods and live stock en route before mid
night on Saturdays. We favor the re
striction of foreign immigration wherever
such immigration threatens to interfere
with the best interests of the American
We condemn blacklisting as industrial
imperialism, and as one of the most dan
gerous features of the trust/ and pledge
the Democratlo party to such legislation,
both national and state, as will abolish
this iniquitous practice, now rooted in our
industrial eystem, and being deliberately
used by organized capital as a means to
terrorize and subjugate labor and to de
stroy labor unions.
