ANTE-CONVENTION NEWS,
THE HALL ARRANGEMENLS ARE
NOW ALL COMPLETED,
TALK ABOUT PLATFORM.
Cyras Leland of Kansas Strong for the
Gold Standard Perry Heath, Mo
Klnley's Literary Bureau Chief,
Says the Indiana Plank Will
be 'Adopted Utah Dele
gate! for Free Silver.
St. Loins, Mo., June 10. Sergeant-at-Arms
Byrnes and First Assistant G.
N. Wiswell of Milwaukee visited the
convention auditorium and decided
upon a number of details, such as the
stationing of inside doorkeepers and
assistantsergeants-at-arms and distrib
uting the force of ushers and pages.
Four doorkeepers will be stationed
at each door, two outside to inspect
the tickets as the crowd . passes
through and two inside to tear off the
coupons. Each division will have four
ushers. There are forty divisions in
the dress circle and gallery and eleven
in the space for the delegates, alter
nates, national committeemen, news
paper workers and notable guests.
There will also be a small army oi
pages and several hundred sergeants-at-arms.
Chief Harrigan has promised a
couple of hundred policemen, but they
will take no part in the disputes until
requested to do so by one or more of
the colonel's assistants. A good many
of the policemen will probably be at
tired as private citizens and known
only to the convention officials and
employes.
The work of the decorator of the
auditorium is about finished. ' The
portraits of General Grant and Ad
miral Farragut were put up yester
day. The great naval commander
will look down on the members of the
convention from the gallery railing at
the east end of the hall. Directly op
posite is a portrait of General Phil
Sheridan, representing the army.
Lincoln and Grant are on the two
aides, the first almost directly over
the speaker's stand and Grant at the
center of the south gallery opposite.
Higher than all, just above Lincoln,
Is Washington. Each is surrounded
by American flags. The absence of
pictures and mottoes representing
leaders of the Republican party of to
day will De noticed. The omission
was intentional.
CT LKLAND TALKS AGAINST SILVKB.
Cy Leland of Kansas, who is finish
ing his twelfth year as National com
mitteeman, is here. Regarding Mc
Kinley and the money plank he said:
'He is for sound money gold, if you
please and whatever silver is needed.
He is as much opposed to this 16 to 1
heresy as he is to free trade." .
"Then there will be no concessions
made to the silver men from the West,
such as Senators Dubois, Teller and
the chairman of your National com
mittee, Senator Carter, demand?" -
"None whatever. Those fellows
will take what we give them, and if
they don't like it they can bolt, that
is all there is to it. In fact, I expect
to see some of them bolt. And what
if they do? It won't affect the sue
cess of our ticket in the least We
can easily do without them, with New
York and New Jersey and we've got
a cinch ou those states and Connecti
cut, too." "
P. H. Lannen, editor of the Salt
Lake Tribune, arrived to-day with
National Committeeman Salisbury of
Utah. Both are for free silver and
will advocate a plank of that char
acter for the platform. "It would be
folly for any one man to say what the
convention will do on the money
question," said Lannen, "but I am
confident that it will not declare for
a single gold standard. Neither do I
think that the platform will declare
for free silver. I am not pretending
to say what the convention will or
will not do, but it is my honest opinion
that the money plank will be of a
character that the free silver men of
the party can stand on it."
De Young and Salisbury, who were
both present while Lannen was talk
ing, concurred in what he said.
Powell Clayton of Arkansas is here
" and favors a single gold standard
platform.
E. A. Webster, who is at the bead
of a contested delegation from South
Carolina, arrived to-day. The oppos
ing delegation will be led by E. M.
Brayton, national committeeman
from that state.
TALKS ABOUT THB PLATFORM.
W. S. Manning of Albany, N. Y.,
who claims to be a close friend of
McKinley, said that McKinley was
for a gold standard and Teller would
have to bolt He referred to the
speech ef McKinley in Chicago, Feb
ruary 12, in favor of sound money and
said that McKinley's views as ex
pressed then would be followed.
Perry Heath. McKinley's literary
"bureau chief, declared that radical
sentiment on both sides had toned
down considerably in the past few
days, and the Indiana platform would
probably be made the basis of the
plank.
Congressman W. S. Linton, the A.
P. A. leader, will be here, but no or
ganized effort will be made to defeat
McKinley. There will be a fight,
however, against Roman Catholic
national committeemen.
F. B. Brownell, the Missouri Repub
lican leader, declares that Kerens and
Frank went to Canton, Ohio, to see
McKinley in order to try to get him to
help them out 01 their troubles. He
does not believe that McKinley will
. interfere with Missouri matters. Fil
ley refused to believe that MeKiniey
had sent for Kerens. The Kerens
Filley fight has been taken befcre the
McKinley managers here and is mak
ing much trouble.

COLOR LINE AT ST. LOUIS.
No Place for
Negro Delegate
to Eat
or Sleep.
St. Loots, Ma, June la Every ho
tel &b3 boarding house and cafe came
out ftatfooted yesterday and declared
it would entertain no negro as a guest
or customer. Money is no object
Threats of prosecution have had no
effect, and from the present outlook
it would seem that unless tents are
secured, the black men will have to
go hungry and unhoused.
"I am thoroughly disgusted and
discouraged," said National Commit
teeman J. G. Long of Florida, in
speaking of the matter. "I have been
looking all day long for a hotel,
boarding bouse or cafe that would
admit the negroes, but it has been a
fruitless search. I even went so far
as to try to charter a steamboat, but
when the owners learned for what
purpose I wanted it they fonnd an ex
cuse for retusing me the use of the
vessel. It is the only time in the his
tory of the Republican party when
such an embarassing predicament has
arisen."
Late last night some of the mem
bers of the local committee said the
whole matter would be settled to the
satisfaction of all the colored dele
gates. All of them, the committee
men said, would be respectably cared
for and comfortably housed and fed.

REED COUNTS li QUORUM
THE
SPEAKER SQUELCHES
DEADLOCK . SCHEME.
A
DEMOCRATS HAD TO VOTE
Members of the Minority Absent Them
selves for a Time, but Are Brought
in by Officers Four Who Re
fused to Vote Counted by
the Speaker as Present
but Not Voting.
Washington, June 10. When the
House reconvened this morning at 10
o'clock the legislative day of Satur
day was still in existence. There was
a fair attendance of Republicans, but
less than half a dozen Democrats were
upon the floor. This was the result
of the determination of the majority
to consider the contested election case
of Aldrich vs. Underwood. Mr. Mc-
Millen of Tennessee, in explanation
of the absence of members on his side,
said that the Democrats did not con
aider it to be their duty to attend the
closing hours of the session to help
furnish a quorum for the purpose of
unseating another Democrat
The pending question was the mo
tion' to lay on the table a motion to
reconsider the vote by which the
House decided to consider the election
case. The vote resulted vh to 31, n
being present and declining to vote.
This made a total of 145 present, 34
less than a quorum.
In order to break the deadlock
which confronted the majority a call
of the House was ordered, the doors
were closed and the sergeant-at-arms
was directed to bring in absentees.
The Tucker rule adopted at the be'
ginning of the session was invoked for
the first time, it compelled memDers
brought in by the sergeant-at-arms to
vote on the pending question. The
motion was carried 130 to 45. The
Speaker counted four members as
present, but not voting.
Mr. McMuiin attempted to make
the point of order that the report in
the election case was not signed by a
majority of the members of the com
mittee and therefore did not consti
tute a question of privilege. The
chair ruled that, if the point of order
had merit, it came too late, as the
House had decided to consider tbe case.
Mr. Daniels of New York claimed
that Underwood had 1,156 majority on
the face of tbe returns. Fraud and
intimidation were charged and the
majority found that Aldrich received
in fact a majority of 220. The minor
ity admitted that the returns were in
correct, but claimed that the corrected
returns still gave underwood 1,038
majority.
On a rising vote the House voted
100 to 6C to unseat Underwood.
NO EXTRA SESSION.
Governor Stone Declines to Accede
to
Mayor Wal bridge's Request.
Jeffurson City, Mo., June 10. Gov
ernor Stone this morning gave out a
letter which he sent to Mayor Wal
bridge of St Louis in which he de
clined to call an extra session of the
legislature to give the city power to
issue bonds to rebuild its public insti
tutions. In the letter he said:
"According to my information the
hospital is the only eleemosynary
building demolished by the storm. If
any other institution of that charac
ter was injured, tbe damage was very
slight and can be repaired at a com
paratively nominal outlay. The hos
pital was an old building, whose value
was not such as to make its loss a mat
ter of serious concern. The loss of
life incident to its fall is to be la
mented, but the destruction of the
building itself cannot be regarded as
a calamity. Its loss has occasioned
some inconvenience, and no doubt will
continue to for some time to come.
I think it safe to assume, however,
that quarters can be secured for hos
pital purposes, ample for present
uses, and substantially as good as
those provided for in the old build
ings; and that this can be done with
out seriously embarrassing tbe cur
rent revenues of the city. The ques
tion then resolves itself into this
shall the general assembly be con
vened at a probable cost to the people
of $50,000 to 875,000, merely to pro
pose a constitutional amendment to
be voted on in November, under the
terms of which the city may issue
bonds to provide extraordinary funds
to construct a new city hospital, and
to remodel and newly equip other
eleemosynary institutions of the
municipality? I am inclined to agree
with you that these public institutions
are not commensurate with the im
portance of your city."

Portland, Ore., June 10. In the

Is It a Bicycle Trust?
Toledo, O., June 10. All of the bl
cycle factories in Toledo except two
have shut down for an indefinite per
lod. As a result, 6,000 men are idle.
This is said to be the first move to
ward curtailing the output of wheels,
the primary object of which is to foroe
prices up to the $100 notch on stand
ard machines. It is further stated
that factories in many other cities are
to follow suit This would lead to the
belief that there is a national combi
nation of wheel makers. Reports
have been received in Toledo from
?5 bicycle manufacturing cities
where plants have shut down or are
about to do so. Incidental to the ef
fort to boost prices, the manufactur
ers figure that a prolonged idleness
will weaken the wheel trades unions
and cheapen the labor of the mechan
ics interested.
