"Cleveland gets the resolutions, (I ray

way a delegate from the "Pocket" soo
lion of the state summed up tho doings of
the convention, and h voiced the f eel
ing of a goodly third of the gathering.
Tho forces of tho old Indiana Democrat hi
war horse wore in fui control, ami the
adherents of tho ex-president were put
to rout with loss of a show of fight
inn to the end than had been anticipated.
They tried to make a stand It is trim,
but they were compelled to ko down bo

The speculation as to the position of
the national delegates Is intently inter
esting, and the claim to the majority is
being fiercely disputed. Some of Gray's
friends claim as high as 20 of the delega
tion for tho Indiana candidate, but this
Is probably an exaggeration. While the
instructions of the state convention im
ply an obligation upon the Indiana dele
gation, it is probable that a few will not
obey them whichever way they may be
given. If the delegation were uuinstruct
ed a politician who is capable of judging
things says it would give Cleveland 10
and Uray 14.
Btanding room was at a premium
when at 10:30 State Chairman Tuggart
requested the tody to come to order.
Alter prayer by ex-Benator Smith, the
venerable Senator Turpie was intro
duced. He was accorded a hearty greet
ing and addressed tho convention in a
speech arraigning the administration
aiul closing as follows: "The most com
plete personification, the veritable flesh
and blood embodiment of the fallacies,
falsehoods and follies of Republicanism
is found in the present occupant of tho
presidential chair." The salient points
of Senator Turpio's simjocIi were liberally
e recognized with applause), and a cordial
reception was given Judge Voyles, chair
man of the committee on resolutions,
who made his report.
The platform of tho convention ar
raigns the Harrison administration, de
mands such tariff reform as shall re
lieve the necessities of the people, con-
damns the reciprocity scheme and en
dorses Cleveland as the first choice of
Indiana for president, with Gray as sec
ond choice if Cleveland cannot be nom
inated. The money plank declares that
a full volume of money, consisting of
gold, silver and legal tender paper
money at mt with one another snould
be kept in circulation. The platform
eulogized Senators Voorhees and Turpie
for their work in congress.
The reference to Cleveland and Gray
was received with tho greatest enthuf
osiri and tho resolution went through
with a whoop. Then tho names of tho
district delegates to Chicago were mnda
a matter of record and nominations for
Justices of the supreme court were in

fact that tho Australian election law re

Wasiiinoton, April 22, Mr. Mandor-
lon presided in the obsonco of tho vice
president, Resolutions calling for infor
mation in regard to the condition of tha
salmon canning industry, and as to tho
amount realized from tho sale of west
ern lands, were adopted. Senate bill
were passed remittitur penalties on the
dynamite cruiser Vesuvius; establishing
consuls in the Congo countrv: author
izing Commander D. W. Mulfan. United
States navy, to accept a modal conferred
upon him hy the Chilean government in
commemoration of tho final victory of
Chile over Peru in the war of 1877
(Commander Mullon having been sent
out as a representative of the United
States to observe the military and naval
ojeriitlons); appropriating $.(00,000 for
sundry lighthouses and other aids to
navigation distributed all along the
coast. A bill was passed reimbursing
Nebraska $500,000 expens-s incurred in
repelling the threatened Sioux Indian in
vasion of 189011.
The Chinese question proved as irre
pressible as the silver question in the
senate. Notwithstanding the opinion of
tho foreign rtdations committee that the
existing laws remain in force till 1WM, a
general Chinese debate, characterized
by a vigorous onslaught upon the
Geary house bill by Mr. Sherman, was
entered upon and remains the unfinished
business. An ineffectual attempt was
made to arrive at an agreement to take
a vote on tho question. Homo rather
pointed references wero made in the do
bate to senators who now denounce
violation of treaty st ipulations, but who
did not themselves oppose the Scott ex
clusion law of 1888.
