As Mr. Mills concluded. Chairman Rich ardson announced that he had been in formed that the Platform Committee would be ready to report at 2:30 o’clock. Thereupon a motion was agreed to to adjourn until that hour and the vast au dience tiled out of ;he building amid en thusiastic shouts for the favorite leaders and the enlivening mun of the orches tra. 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 sent. Jones Presented Platform. It wa* not untij 4 o’clock that Chair man Richardson, turn ng from a confer ence with Gov. McMillan and Senator 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*. 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 ed: “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 document.” 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 in Cuba. 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 shouting. * ■ 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 liam McKinley.” 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 it unrolled its white and crimson fell* as 1’ fell graceful y and swung over the plat form slightly to the rear and south of the Speaker’s desk. The banner was an enor mous affair, being fully fifty feet long an 1 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 governed." t “The constitution and the flag, one and Inseparable, now and forever.” "The flag of a republic forever, of an empire, never.” "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 cance For full two minutes the cords of the fl-'g caught and would not permit It to fall to Its full length. It was causlit tip Just enough to prevent the convention from reading th" Inscriptions upon the banner, nd until they were released and the banner swung free, the enthusiasm Increased every second. When finally eveiy word was visible, there was a cl,- mx of cheers that were deafening. “Hell HroUen boose.” Tillman stood surveying the Hferm and nwaiting an opportunity to The chapman pounded hit gavel and appealed for ord* r. But the march 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 here o tew minutes ago. he would have thought hell had broken loose in Mis souri.” There were cries of “Good, Good,” when the trust plank was read. When the Sen ator leached the reaffirmation of ihe Chi cago platform, with the declaration for free silver coinage at a ratio of 16 to 1, 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 . and George Fred Wil lams led the M tssa chusetts cont.ngent in salvos of cheers. One of the New York delegates raised a standard bearing the inscription: “Don’t think there are no 16 to l’ers in New York.” The demonstration lasted four and one half minutes. There was intense scorn in the Sena tor’s voice as he read Ihe platform ar raignment of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, evoking mingled laughter and applause. The Boer plank brought another cheer, and the Senator received a round of ap plause as he closed. 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 sent. The announcement of Chairman Richardson of the adoption of the plat form was followed by a stunning shout. ELLIOT DANFORTS. A Possibility in tle Vice I'resldential Content. 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 vention. 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 much applause. 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 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 convention Is the nomination of a candi date foi the presidency of the Vnlttd States. The secretary will call the roll of slates." Kefore doing so the secretary rend the names of the members of the committee appointed by the chair to confer with the Silver Republicans and Populists lit ac cordance with the resolutions Introduced by George Fred Williams of Massachu setts o.t the morning session.

The entire meeting was ievoted to a representation to the Dem ratic re preset! tat ives by the other con ferees of the availability of Mr. Towne as a candidate. Senator Tillman was satisfied with the representations, and said he would sup port Towne. Senator Martin said he had been very ( favorably impressed, but com mitted himself no further.

Tilman for Towne. Kansas City, July s.—The most impor tant development in the vice presidential situation to-night was the announcement that when the roll of states is called to morrow’ for the nomination of candidates 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. Hill is Popular. Another development was the unques tioned popularity of David B. Hill for the place as manifested in the convention, and the desire expressed in many quarters for hie selection. The selection, however, is complicated by the fact that New York stands in the way of the selection of either Hill or Dan forth. Hill doee not want the nomination, and will take measures to prevent his ee- f 1 I fi i// s: wf^Jf| WILLIAM SULZER. Mentioned In Connection AAlth the Vice Presidential Aominntion. 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 1 nd themselves to any such proposition, for they are se king a New York candi date whom New York will present with seriousness and who will strengthen the t eke t | The past two days have been so occu pi and with the platform that little or no :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 purpose. 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* HE LIKES THE PLATFORM. ltryan Saye It 1* All Clear and Ex plicit on Every Qncntlou. Lincoln, Ncib., July s,—William J. Bry an to-night gave out a statement on the Kansas City platform, in which he says: “I am very much gratified to learn of the adoption of a platform which is clear and explicit on every question. The con troversy over the silver plank was not -m controversy between men who differed in principle, but rather a difference of opin ion as to the best method of stating the question. If we only had Democrats to deal with, simple reaffirmation would have been sufficient, but we have to d* a I with Republicans as well os Democrats, and some of the Republicans would mis construe a reaffirmation and endeavor to twfist it into an evasion or abandonment of the silver question. “Our platform deals honestly and fear lessly with ever question before the pub lic.” COL. tOWARDIN DEAD.
