NOTHING FOR GOLD IK,

THE CHICAGO CONVENTION.
SILVER MEN WILL RULE.
Chairman Hlnrlchsen of HllnoU Says
the Convention Will Be a White
Metallist Affair la Every Detail
Froaa Beginning- to Bad aad
That Tallow Metalllstt
Will Not Be la It.
Chicago, June 3a W. H. Hinrich
een, delegate-st-large and chairman of
the Illinois State central committee,
said to-day: "The silver men are go
ing to run the convention. They will
control both the temporary and per
manent organizations and will nomin
ate a free silver ticket from top to
bottom and adopt a free silver 16 to 1
platform. The wishes of the gold
men will not be considered. The
W. H. HINRICHSEN.
States they represent will not vot
the ticket and so they will be ignored.
Last year when the Democrats of
Illinois held a convention and de
clared for free silver I wrote to Mr.
Whitney and a number of other good
standard Democrats, asking for a con
ference between the silver men and
the gold men of the party. Their re
plies were short and curt They
could not think of consulting with so
insignificant a crowd as the free silver
wing represented. Things have
changed now. We have two-thirds of
the delegates. We wiinot confer
with the gold men because we have
nothing to confer about. The great
Democratic party wants a free silver
ticket and platform and we will give
it to them."
NATIONAL COMMITTEE FLANS.
The subcomnii ttee of the Democratic
national committee will meet in the
Palmer house to-morrow for fhe pur
pose of arranging some of the minor
details of the convention. This sub
committee consists of W. H. Harrity
of Pennsylvania, Secretary S.P. Sheerin
of Indiana and 6. T. Cable of Illinois,
. J. G. Parther of Missouri, E. C. Wall
of Wisconsin, Hugh C. Wallace of
Washington and T. H. Sherley of Ken
tucky. It will hear reports from the
subcommittees on music, press and
decoration of the convention hall.
Sheerin said to-day that the minor
committees having these matters in
charge would be able to report that
everything was in practical readiness
for the convention, and be had no
doubt that the subcommittee in
charge would find the work in all re
spects satisfactory. The national
committee has departed from the
usual rule, of having a committee
composed of residents to look after
matters, placing the work in the
hands of members of the organization,
and the members feel that the inno
vation has proved a success.
The full national committee will not
meet until next Monday, the day be
fore the convention. No one appears
to have a definite idea as to what busi
ness it will have before it. There
have been reports of contests from va
rious states, notably Michigan, Texas,
Nebraska, Nevada and Colorado, but
Colonel Sheerin says that so far he has
received official notice of that from
The Democratic party has in the
past been so free from contests that
there are few precedents to guide
them. The national committee, how
ever, has never before granted hear
ings as the Republican committee does
nor attempted to arrange them so far
as to decide what set of delegates, in
contested cases, shall have their
names placed upon the temporary
roll. The practice has been rather to
ieprive both parties to a contest from
participating' in the temporary organ
ization, thus referring the entire mat
ter to the convention. It is believed
that this plan will be pursued this
PENNOYER IN THE LIST.
The Oregon Governor Will Be Boomed
as a Favorite Sod.
Portland, Ore., June 30. "Pen
noyer for president" will be the slogan
of the Oregon Democratic dele
gation to the Chicago convention.
It cannot be established that Pen
noyer has expressed any desire to
have it so; but there is little doubt
that his name and fame will be ex
ploited long and loudly among the
delegates. The state Democracy is in
favor of the free coinage of silver.
Morrill Men Jubilant.
Topeka, Kan., June 30. The man
agers of Governor Morrill's campaign
are feeling jubilant. They profess to
believe that their candidate is now as

Abrogation of the Two-Third Demanded
No Presidential Preference,
Chic a 00, June 30. The Illinois dele
gational Democratic convention voed
unanimously to-day to support in the
convention a resolution for the abro
gation of the rule requiring a Presi
dential candidate to receive the vote
of two-thirds of the convention to in
sure nomination. The proposition was
supported in an earnest speech by
The delegation also discussed at
length a suggestion offered by ex-Congressman
Williams that the delegation
should express a preference for Presi
dential candidates. Mr. Williams
made a speech in support of this propo
sition and waa supported by A. H.
Bell, who was temporary chairman of
the Peoria convention. The temper
of the delegation was, however, to
evidently opposed to action that Mr.
Williams withdrew his proposition.
Mr. Williams is a district delegate and
is instructed for Bland.
The delegation expressed itself as
favorable to taking the steps neces
sary to secure a silver man for tempo
rary chairman of the convention,
regardless of the choice of the nation
al committee, if that choice should
fall upon a gold advocate, but ex
pressed no preference as to aspirants
for that position.
Governor Altgeld was elected chair
man of the delegation; C. W. Bliss of
Hilsboro secretary and Colonel Hef
teron of Bloomington sergeant-at-armi
The delegation adjourned to meet
again next Saturday at 10 o'clock.

Presidency. They have come to assist

declare that no other candidate has

that Bland is so much in the lead that
the declaration of Illinois for him
would insure his nomination. It is
said that more than one Illinois dele
gate has pledged himself for Bland.

MORRILL MEN ANGRY.
Score Jodge Peter Bight Boundly foi
His Beeeot Actions.
Tofeka, Kan., June 30. The friends
of Governor Morrill are up in arms
against S. R. Peters, on account of a
statement he makes in an interview
at Newton declaring as his excuse for
coming out for Governor that Gov
ernor Morrill's nomination would en
danger the success of the State legis
lature and Congressional tickets.
One paragraph of Peters' statement
reads: "The announcement of my
candidacy could have been no surprise
to the Governor, because no man in
the State was better informed of the
possibility or the apparent necessity
Governor Morrill when asked how
he interpreted that declaration said:
"I had made up my mind not to talk,
for the less friction in matters of this
kind, the better, but this seems to de
mand a word from me. I don't know
what it means, unless it be an allusion
to his statements to me in private
conversations, that there was a hard
fight on me, which for a while seemed
to be growing. But I knew that from
the newspapers and from my friends,
However, I was no better informed of
this opposition than thousands of
other intelligent men who read the
papers and keep posted. I thought
at the time he told me that the opposi
tion would subside. I might say more
along this line, but I will not It
don t pay to get into a controversy
every time a chance is ottered."
While Peters is assailed by the gov
ernor's friends, there are men who
defend him. One man said: "Per
haps his announcement was ill-timed,
but the fact remains that there was a
call for it He was invited to get into
the race by reputable men and he
should not be abused for exercising
his individual rights, especially since
he did it because good Republicans
thought tnerei was a necessity lor it."

Waterloo, la., July L Ex-Governor
Boies has made public this let
ter, replying to a message from a New
York paper concerning the Whitney
"Mr. Whitney is entirely right in
his conclusion that there is no disposi
tion on the part of those who will
represent the silver sentiment of the
South and West in the Chicago con
vention to further discuss the matter
at issue with men whose views are
diametrically opposite to their own
on the currency question. .
"He is entirely correct in his con
clusion that it is now too late to ac
complish any practical results by a
discussion of that character. Through
out the South and West that discus
sion has been extended and thorough,
and the views expressed by Mr. Whit
ney have been put forward by many
people who entertain them, and they
have been fully considered and
weighed, and, after all of this, the
judgment of an overwhelming ma
jority of the party in these sections is
evidenced by the class of delegates
who have been chosen to represent it
in the Chicago convention. Not one
of these men can now disregard the
known sentiment of those who se
lected him without betraying the
trust confided to him, and not one of
them, in my judgment, will ever do so.
"Mr. Whitney is entirely wrong In
assuming that free silver Democrats
are forsaking the fundamental princi
ples of Democracy, or what he terms
sound money Democrats are defending
those principles in their endeavor to
commit their party to gold monomet
allism. Until the Republican party
met in St Louis a few days since
there was never a line written in a
national platform of either of the
great parties that justifies the claim
that one or the other of these parties
was committed to that doctrine. Over
and over again the Democratic party,
in national convention assembled, has
put itself on record in the clearest and
most comprehensive language possible
to use, in favor of bimetallism, in
favor of the restoration of silver to its
place in our financial system as
standard money, and never for a mo
ment in the Congress of the United
States has a majority, or anything
like a majority, of the representatives
of that party wavered in their devo
tion to the principles so clearly enun
ciated in the parly platforms. To as
sume now that adherence to that prin
ciple is abandonment of an established
doctrine of the party is to defy his
tory and ignore the most plainly writ
ten of all its declarations of policy.
"It is useless to claim that a tender
of the (rood offices of the party to se
cure an international agreement for
the-free coinage of silver is the fulfill
ment of its pledges so often made in
this respect To sincere believers in
bimetallism for the United States, an
offer of this character is little, if any
thing, less than unqualified violation
of a sacred pledge by a great political
organization. If this is all that Mr.
Whitney, and those who think with
him, can offer, it will be vastly better
to offer nothing.
"When Mr. Whitney says the main
tenance of our present gold standard
is essential to the preservation of our
national credit and redemption of our
public pledges he ignores a great truth
of which he cannot be ignorant He
knows there is not a single obligation
of this government outstanding to-day
that by its terms is payable in gold
alone and knows that right upon the
face of the great bulk of the bonds of
the government it is written in sub
stance that they are payable in coin
of the United States of the standard
weight and fineness of its coins before
silver was demonetized, and that
therefore, by their own express
terms they are payable in our
present silver dollars, if the govern
ment elects to so pay them. It is since
the most of these obligations were is
sued that silver has been demonetized,
whereby, if they are to be paid in
gold alone, their valve has been
doubled, and the burden of the great
industrial classes, who must provide
for their payment, has been increased
"To talk about a violation of na
tional honor, when no party in the
nation has ever suggested its failure
in the least degree to meet every ob
ligation it has assumed, according to
the strict letter of the contract it
made, has, to say the least, a strange
sound to those who heard the uni
versal cry of distress, occasioned, as
they believe, by doubling the pur
chasing power of money and cutting
in twain the market price of the pro
ducts of labor. If to undo what law
has done to add to the burden of those
toiling millions of this nation and
double the fortunes of the rich within
it is to disrupt the Democrrtic party
disruption must come."
