SESSION I\ Til 10 AFTERNOON.
\Ym Marked by a Saccitaion of
Frantic Demon at rat lon a.
Convention Hall. Kansas City, July 5
Although the time between the adjourn
ment of the morning cession and that set
for the opening of the afternoon was over
two hours, at no time were the galleries of
the greet hall more than one-third emp
tied. Thousands of people sat out the
adjournment, being determined to miss no
part of the excitement
By 3:30 o’clock nearly all of the delegates
were ready for business and waiting the
arrival of Chairman Richardson, who was
a trifle slow in making his appearance.
The delegates seemed anxious to get to
work end complete the business of the
convention, and when, at 3:38 o’clock, the
chairman made his appearadnoe. inert was
a rippie of applause. Many of the dele
gates had come prepar*d for the nomina
tion of Mr. Bryan. Dozens of them car
ried small flag's* and numerous- plumes of
bright colored pampas grass were visible
on various parts of the floor.
The crowd by 3:40 o’clock was the great
est that had attended any session of the
convention. The gatekeepers were for
oncte rather lax in denying admission to
people, and there were hundreds who had
no tickets of admission who were allowed
to enter the building. They swarmed in
upon the floor until it seemed impossible
that there could be room for one more.
At 3:46 o’clock Senator Hill of New York,
who had been absent from the two preced
ing sessions, came through the delegates*
door by himself. He was not recognised
at first and had nearly reached his seat
when the ory of “Hill!” “Hill!” broke
forth. It was coupled with considerable
applause, but the demonstration in honor
of the Senator when present lacked several
degrees the warmth shown yesterday af
ternoon and this morning when he was ab
Jones Presented Platform.
It wa* not untij 4 o’clock that Chair
man Richardson, turn ng from a confer

White, picked up the gavel and brought
the convention to order. The platform
committee, headed by Senator Jones, I).
J. Oampau, Senator Tillman and Judge
Van Wyck. had Just pushed their wav
through the dense throng and had taken
seats flanking the platform. Mr. Richard
son appealed long and vainly for order.
The portly form of Senator sil
ver-haired and serious, advanced to the
front of the s.ag*. He he'd a roll of man
uscript In his hands. But it was useless
to talk against such a tumult, and he
dropped back in his sea’ until order was
being restorod. At last the noise subsided
and Mr. Jones, in a ckar voice, announc
“I am authoriz'd by the Committee on
Resolutions to present the platform agreed
upon, and I will yield to the Senator from
South Carolina, Mr. Tillman, to read the
Was Head by Tillman.
Mr. Tillman now stepped to the front
and was greeted with a cheer. He read
the platform in a full, round voice, easily
heard throughout the hall.
As he proceeded, each plank was greet
ed with applause. The Senator accompan
ied his reading with emphatic gestures,
striding up and down the platform, turn
ing this way and that, after his manner
in the Senate. There was a howl of ap
proval as he clem tied his fi*t and fiercely
arraigned the course l of the administration
But it remained for his reading of the
declaration that “imperialism is the para
mount issue of this campaign” to evoke a
storm of applause. The delegates sf**ang
4o their feet, standing on their chairs,
waving hats, handkerchiefs, umbrellas,
flags, while the galleries took up the cho
rus and carried it along for many min
utes. Senator Hill coukl be seen marshal
ing the hosts to cheer. He held a fan high
above his head and added his voice to the
* ■ eo ? na tlm e Senator Tillman read
this declaration 11 and now even u greater
demonstration than before carried the
convention off us feet. Suddenly, hum
dreds then thousands, of miniature
American flags were passed among the
delegates, and the whole floor of the vast
structure became a sea of flags. An in
stant later the flags swept over the gal
leries like a mass of flame. Bundles of
them were tossed upon the seats and dis
tributed. The scene was magnificently
Inspiring, and the great audience whh
worked up to a fever heat. On each flag
was the device. "The Constitution and
the flag are inseparable, now and for
ever. The flag of the republic forever of
an empire never.”
Was a Great Ormonatratlon.
While the demonstration was at 1-s
bight, the band sent another thrill
through the audience by playing "Dixie”
ard a medley of patriotic airs. State
standards were again torn from their
sockets, banners were raised and a tri
umphal procession of the delegates
marched about the hall. Now the strains
of the band turned to "My Country, 'Tis
of Thee,” at which the entire audience,
as with a single voice, joined in a mights'
and swelling chorus. Amid the billow
ing flags could be seen a tall standard
bearing the inscription, "Forcible annex
ation would be criminal aggression, Wil
It was ai this Juncture that the climax
was sprung upon the great assembly. A
huge flag had been flung across the roof
between two trusses, end as the signal
was given, the corus were cut and slow y

form slightly to the rear and south of the
Speaker’s desk. The banner was an enor

about ore-half as wide. T’pon the white
alripes were the printed sentences in large
lett< rs of blue:
“Constitutional governments derive
their Just powers from the consent of the
“The constitution and the flag, one and
Inseparable, now and forever.”
"The flag of a republic forever, of an
"A republic can have no colonies."
To the vast majority of those In the
hall the flag was an unexpected Incident,
and It: apparanre was the signal for a
frantic roar which caused everything that
had gone before It to eink Into Ins'gni'Jl

the fl-'g caught and would not permit It

of the delegates', bearing their standards
and banners, ran on uninterruptedly for
twenty-two minutes. As Senator Tillman
was about to resume, he remarked that
the thread of his discourse had been brok
en, and that down .South they were in the
habit of saying. “Hell has broken loose
in Georgia. And,” added the Senator,
vociferously, “if Mark Henna had been

There were cries of “Good, Good,” when

pandemonium broke Bu* the demon
stration was faint in comparison to what
had just occurred when imperialism was
announced as “the paramount issue.”
Many' of the delegates stood on their
chairs and waved flags and cheered, but
a very considerable number-mop than
half—held their seats. Senator Hill was
among those who maintained quiet, while
Mr. Croker waved a flag until h hr k .

Adopted ly Acclamation.
When the applause had subsided, Chair
man Jones of the Platform Committee
s.iii he had been instructed to move that
the platform be adopted by the conven
tion by acclamation. The motion was
put, and amid a roar of cheers, the plat
form was adopted without a word of dis

form was followed by a stunning shout.

which mode the* building ring from one
cr.d to the other.
Then followed a stirring and dramatic
scene The plank in the platform denounc
ing England’s policy toward the Boers had
called out immense applause, but when
it was announced by Chairman Richard
son that the convention would be address
ed by Hon. Webster Davis, former assist
ant Secretary of the Interior, the crowd
manifested its enthusiasm by cheering for
two minutes. Then the former Republican
leader ast'ended the platform and stood
facing the thousands of spectators.
The speech of Mr. Davis was arranged
in order to enable him to announce his
allegiance to the Democratic party and
the platform and to the ticket of the con
Webster Davis for Iloers.
In dramatic style and with all the force
and magnetism of a fine orator. Mr. Davis
began his address. He denounced as "a
malicious lie” the statement that he had
been forced to leave his office in the pres
ent national administration. He pictured
in brilliant and flaming sentences the
•‘cruelties” and aggressions practiced by
Great Britain upon the Boers of South
Africa. He expressed his intense satis
faction that the Democratic party had In
corporated In the platform a plank so cor
dially and enthusiastically indorsing the
cause of the Boers, which was the cause
of liberty and justice.
As he felt, he said, that this great re
public should not chain itself to the char
iot wheels of the empire that was crush
ing liberty to death in South Africa, he
believed it to be his duly to ally himself
with the Democratic party. His account
with the Republican party he regarded
as fully balanced. He owed It no further
obligations. These sentiments met with
In conclusion, in announcing his inten
tion of supporting the Democratic party,
and Its ticket, Mr. Davis said with great
emphasis: ”1 stand upon this platform
and shall support W. J. Brenninge.”
It was a curious and laughable confus
ion of the syllable? of Bryan’s name. But
the crowd knew what he meant and cheer
ed him wildly.
As Mr. Davis concluded, the bond struck
up "Hail to the Chief.” and while it w.is
rendering the air. he held on informal re
ception upon the platform. Chairman
Richardson was the first to grasp his hand
as he concluded, then Senator .1 K.
Jones and others crowded around him un
til he had gnat difficulty in retaining his
feet. He left the platform as soon os he
was able, hut on the way to his s. at he
war given ahouto of approval hy tho-o
whom he passed. The band passed from
”Hsll to the Chief.” to "America." an t
the convention sung It until the bond
would play no more.
The chairman rose to his reel and wav
ed desperately for silence When :t few
degrees of confusion had been eliminated,
he said: “The next business before the

Kansas City, July s.—The most impor

that when the roll of states is called to

for Vice President. Alabama will yield to
Florida, and Hon. R. D. McDonald of thrft
state will place Elliott F. Danforth of
New York in nomination. This pro
gramme became known during the ses
sion of the convention to-night and was
discussed by quite a number of the lead
ing men in different delegations.

Another development was the unques

place as manifested in the convention, and
the desire expressed in many quarters for

lection. Danforth does w r ant it, and would
be nominated if New' York would present
him. But the convention will not for.-e
a candidate upon New York, against the
will of the delegation from that state.
This probably will prevent the movement
for Danforth from amounting to very
much. It ia pretty generally felt that
this* movement was inaugurated for the
purpose of complimenting Hill and rebuk
ing Croker, for the manner in which H’ll
and his candidate, Danforth, were treat
ed under the direction of Mr. Croker.
But the large state delegations will not

| The past two days have been so occu

:pr gress has been made by the candidates
for Vice President. So much interest de
■ eloped in the contest over the silver
plank that delegates did not have time
to consider the matter.
The Stevenson Boom.
Meanwhile, there has been a develop
ment of the Stevenson boom. It Is,
however, of a passive character, the be-
Icif being general tha.t he would make
a safe candidate, and that he Is the only
man who can beat Towne. The demand
for a Democrat on the ticket is still
strong, arid Towne’s candidacy is ham
pered by reason of his professed poli
tics. Still, the friends of Towne are work
ing very hard, and hope that the peculiar
situation regarding the other candidates
may yet give him the nomination.
That the Democratic Coirven ion Is tak
ing the matter into consideration is shown
by the adoption to-day of a resolution for
a commit ee on conference. It was well
understood that the conference with the
Populists meant but one thing, that they
would insist upon Towne and would a'-tree
to no other candidate. M< n like O ergo
l 7 red Williams and Senator Tillman, who
were among the victors in securing the
16 to 1 plank in the platform, are doing
all they can to bring about the nomination
of Towne by the convention.
'Want. Hill’s Help.
Senator Hill had many conferences in
his rooms during the evening. A dele
gation from Illinois called on him at 11
o'clock and asked him to support Mr.
Stevenson for the vice presidency. It is
understood he promised the delegation
tliat what strength he had with delegates
outside New York he would lend to that
Rater, Mr. Danforth called, and State
Committee Chairman Campbell, Eugene
Wood. Frederick Schraub and John Car
lisle urged that he withdraw. Mr. Dan
forth's position was a rather curious one.
He claimed he could get the votes of
Virginia, Florida and Alabama, and
that there was a possibility
ot securing the voles of Newr York He
was told that Mr. Kellar had New York,
California and Roulslnne, und a prospect
of more, and a defeat was liable to place
him In a bad position.
Mr. Hill was urged to take up Mr. pan
forth's cause, but up to the hour of mid
night he had not agreed to do so. In
fact, he said that he believed Mr. Steven
son would be the nominee of the conven
tion. Mr. Stevenson is the candidate of
the conservative element, repreaennd by
Mr. Hill. It Is generally conceded that
Mr. Stevenson will come near getting the
wajoniy oX the vote*

deal with, simple reaffirmation would
have been sufficient, but we have to d* a I

Gentlemen—lt gives me pleasure to
heartily recommend "Infant-Friend
Powder/' and to give to you a slngu
lar little coincidence connected with
Du ring the Cot ton oSt a teg and Intjpr-
Irational Exposition I wan presented
with a little box of (hi* powder, and
was ao pleased with it that I was ex
ceedingly anxious to get more, but on
looking at the box I found nothing
but Savannah, Ga., no other address.
I have often wished I know where
to get it. This morning’s mall brought
your circular wUh enclosed sample. I
Immediately referred to my box. and
found it woe the "Infant-Friend Pow
der." It t* without doubt the l>est
powder I have ever used.
