Much more energetic was the shout that
followed the declaration that the coming

against the empire.
Like Schoolboy* With King*.
The conclusion of Chairman Richard
con# speech was the signal for terrific
applause and cheers. His mention of the
name of William J. Bryan brought the
convention to its feet in a frenzy of enthu
siasm. Delegates sprang upon their
chairs, waving hnts, handkerchiefs and
umbrellas in the wildest fashion. By com
mon impulse the poll's bearing the name*
of states were torn up and thrust into the
air. Then down the aisle toward the
speaker’s desk came groups of del
egates surrounding one man who he;d
the name of the state aloft. Texas and

While this strife was going on between
the two states, the frenzy had taken
hold of the delegations and from all
parts of the hall men came plunging
through the throng carrying their state
emblems. They became densely packed
in front of the Speaker’s desk, and yell
ing and cheering like maniacs, they
strove to raise the name of their state
level with that of New York. The effort
was useless, however, and held firm by
the Tammany men. New York kept its

failure to equal New York, made a rush
for the speakers stand. They went
through the crowd with a force that no
opposition before them could prevent, and
pushing, shoving, clawing and cheering,
they hoisted their man upon the platform
and lifted him upon a chair. Their effort
was successful, and New York was eclips
ed once more. Kellar Is no small man to

nearly ready to drop, but a glance at the
Georgia banner brought new strength into
their wearied aims, and new’ determina
tion Into their hearts and Mr. Kellar went
up still higher and was on top once more.
The convention by this time was
state of frantic excitement. The men from
Hawaii, carrying their large banner, came
down the aisle, followed by a shouting
mob which bore all before it. The band
struck up. “The Stars and Stripes." and
to its inspiring strains, the crowd com
menced to march around the floor, yelling
line mad men, waving everything that
could be lifted into the air. Hats, hand- .
’icrchiefs, umbrellas, state emblems, ban- ;
ners and the national colors were united
ir.to conglomerate wave, and beneatn it
marched a crowd of men fairly beside
themselves with excitement. With flush
ed faces, down w’hich the perspiration roll
ed in streams, many without coats and
vests, they went round and round the hall,
shouting, yelling and screaming at the
top of their voices.
Those delegates who did not join in the
march lent most efficient aid in increasing
the uproar. They contiibuted nothing
but their voices and their hats and hand
kerchiefs, but they used the first as
though they were made of brass, and
orignaliy designed for one night’s wear
only.and the last two in a manner usually
os energetic. The band did its share and
the tooters of horns and the beaters of
sheepskins worked away for dear life.
Nobody knew’ W’hat they played—nobody
cared. They were doing their full share,
and that was all that was necessary.
After the excitement had continued
for fifteen minutes. Mr. Richard
son attempted to bring order out
of the chaos that ruled upon the
floor Now’ and then the pUter of h’s gav
el could be heard and every time the
sound reached the ears of a delegate he
shrieked the louder. Time after time the
chairman attempted to restore order, but
he was utterly lost and overwhelmed in
his effort. •

THREE PIATFORMS OFFERED.
Presented the Committee by Metcalf,

Kansas City, July 4.-The contest over
the question of th e monetary ratio, which
has been brewing ever since the delegates
to the convention began to assemble,
found expression in the Committee on Res
olutions when it assembled to-day.
The committee was called together soon
after the first adjournment of the conven
tion, but only elected its officers, adjourn
ing to meet again at 3:30 p. m. Senator
Jones of Arkansas was unanimously chos
en chairman, and Mr. Metcalf of Nebraska
When the committee reassembled. Mr.
Metcalf presented the draft of a platform,
covering all questions of public interest,
which draft all the members accepted as
Mr. Bryan's. Mr. Garrard of Georgia also
presented a platform, as did Mr. Van-
Wyck of Now York. All these documents
took practically the same ground upon all
questions except that of finames. Mr.
Metcalf’s declaration was for the reaffir
mation of the Chicago platform in letter
and spirit, and it emphasized and reiter
ated specifically the declaration for the
free coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to
1. Doth the other drafts simply reaffirm
ed the Chicago platform without reference
to the ratio.
Took Ip Finance*.
The reading of Mr. Van Wyek’s docu
ment brought Mr, Ball of Texas, to hie
feet, with the suggestion that the finan
cial question should be immediately taken
up and passed upon. He sold it was ap
parent to all that there was no division
upon any other question of Ihe platform,
and with the financial plank dis|oscd of,
the preparation of the remainder of the
platform would be merely a matter of
This suggestion was adopted, and the
committee immediately entered upon the
effort to settle the question of ratio. The
session proved a very Interesting one, and
many speeches were made.
Mr. Van Wyck led off with a brief
statement, saying that while In his plat
form he had referred to four Issues as
prominent, namely, those of Imperialism,
militarism, trusts, and the finances, h*
considered that only three of these were
of current consequence, believing that the
money question had beeji crowded Into
♦lie background by other lulled* which

had pressed to the front during the past
Senator Daniel of Virgina, somewhat to
the surprise of some of the members of
the committee followed Mr. Van Wyck In
support of his view of the question. The
senator said that no man who knew him
I would doubt for a minute that he now
| stood where he had stood on the silver
question in 189t>, and that he entertained
precisely the same views on this subject
which then controlled him. He was, how.
ever, anxious to bring back into the party
those who had left it lour years ago on
account of the position taken on the silver
question, and if this could be accom
plished, as he believed it could be by
omitting all reference to the ratio, he, for
one. was content to pursue that course,
simply 1 eaffirming the Chicago platform.
Mr. Fitzgerald of Colorado followed in a
warm speech denouncing in most emphatic
language any effort to minimize the finan
cial question. He asserted that the omis
sion of a declaration on ratio of the two
inernls would be a mere evasion and con
cealment; that such evasion would fool
no one. He declared that if such declara
tion were not made even Colorado could
be counted at a doubtful state.
William* Strong for Silver,
George Fred Williams of Massachu
setts also made a spirited argument for
n specific cPelarat on on the question of
ratio. He assured that the Democratic
party had become a new’ party since it
had incorporated anew financial plank
in its new declaration of principles. It
had become a virile and live party since
1896. and this fact was due solely to the
circumstances that the money question,
which was the. question of the people, hal
been made the paramount Issue. He eu
logized Mr. Bryan in high terms, spoke of
his self-abnegation and patriotism, and
said that it would be cowardly to ask that
gemleman to rtcant what he had been
preaching throughout the country for the
past four years. While not pretending to
say what Mr Bryan would do. Mr. Wil
liams asserted tmphatically and signi
ficantly that if placed in Mr. Bryan’s po
sition he would decline a nom'nation upon
an equivocal platform. As for himself,
he did not believe in deserting those peo
ple who had left their own party to sup
port the Democratic policy of four years
ago for the purpose of regaining the sup
port of the traitors and trimmers who had
left the Democratic party because of its
financial position. “There is no reason."
he exclaimed, “for making any conces
sion to treason.”
Mr. Williams was frequently applauded
during the course of his remarks. He was
followed by Mr. Daly, of New’ Jersey, who
made' a plea for copservatism and for con
cessions to the moderate wing of the
party. He said that he had cheerfully
supported the platform and ticket of four
years ago and had stumped the country
for Mr. Bryan, but he felt convinced that
the time had come when the money ques
tion was no longer paramount, and he
implored the committee and the conven
tion to put it somewhat in the back
ground and make the light of 1900 on other
At the conclusion of Mr. Daly’s speech,
the committee concluded to take a recess
until 8 o’clock in order to allow its mem
bers to get their dinners.
Upon all questions other than that per
taining to finances the three platfroms
presented were practically the same, ex
cept that Mr. VanWyck’# draft did not
cover so many questions as did the other
Brief of Metcalf’* Platform.
Mr. Metcalf’s copy, after reaffirming the
Chicago platform, and referring especially
to the ratio in the coinage of the metals,
denounced trusts in drastic language, and,
in the same connection, refers to the pro
tective tariff as one of the principal sup
ports of the trust system. It also con
demns the alleged tendency of the pres
ent Republican administration towards
imperialism and the increase of the stand
ing army. Sympathy is expressed for the
Boers in their struggle with Great Brit
ain and the President condemned lor his
failure to take decisive steps looking to
wards- the manifestation of the sympathy
of the American people with the people
of the Transvaal.,
In connection with the expression on
the Boer question, the assertion is made
that it is evident to all men that a secret
alliance exists between the McKinley ad
ministration end the British government,
and this alliance is denounced as revolt
ing ami repulsive to all liberty-loving peo
