Pt Lotis, June 11. Gold has car
ried the day. This assertion, made
through the United press by Senator
Henry Cabot L-xlge at an ear'y hour
yesterday afternoon, put a new phase
on the finai.cial situation and over
turned several of the plans which had
be'n formed by thife who expected a
different result. Mr. Lodge figured that
twenty-two out of the forty-five states
now forming the union hail each se
lected a member of the committee on
resolutions; favorable to the gold stand
a-d and that two or three western
states were likely to follow suit, thus
insuring a clear majority.
The Ohio men somewhat reluctantly
recognised that Mr. Lodge as creak
ing by the card. George A. Kohertsou,
editor of the Cleveland Recorder, who
has made a specialty of fashioning the
views of the Ohio lenders on this mat
ter, saw ex-Secretary Foster and asked
him if he did not know that the jieople
all through northern Ohio weie for
nlver. He replied: "The people of
Ohio are republicans and they will
stand by sound republican doctrine.
Free silver is a heretic and they do not
want it."
General C. H. Grosveno- who is re
garded as almost the mouthpiece of
McKinley, aid : "The plat for n will lie
ell right. There will le no occasion for
the east to complain on that score. It
will be discussed a good deal more,
but it Is practically settled that the
declaration will be for gold;" and even
Mark Hanna could not dispute the fact
that the gold standard plank was in the
It is somewhat singular that Illinois,
which turned the scale in favor of Mc
Kinley by instructing for him instead
of for Culloni, took a leading part in
shaping the course of the middle wes
ern states yesterday by adopting a go d
plank by the decisive vote ol forty-two
to six.
The action of the Idaho state delega
tion may perhaps be significant of an
Intent to bolt. It selected all I he usual
officers appointed by state delegations
except some one to wait upon the
nominee for president and vice-president.
Beyond this and the exceeding
1 ift money plank adopted by the Io
delegation, who favored "gold, silver
ind paper kept on a purity by the en
actment of laws to accomplish it,"
there were no very significant financial
features in the meetings of the slate
delegations which occupied much of
the day.
In the selection of national commit
teemen for next year, however, matir
men of national repute were turned
down. William M. Hahn, so long e
potent factor in Ohio politics, disap
pear! from the list, as does also the
equally well known Gen. Jamps 8.
Clarkson of Iowa, and ex-Pres dent
Harrison's friend, J. N. Huston of
Indiana. Chauncey I. Filley of Mis
souri sustained another defeat at the
hands of bis old opponent, Mr. Kerens,
and Col. William I.amb, chairman of
the state committee of Virginia and
leader of the Reed forces in that state,
was compelled to retire from the na
tional committee in favor of a gentle
man holding different views. The cane
of Joseph H. Manley of Maine is still
held under advisement by his delega
ti m with an intimation that they will
probably consider his recent offense in
giving up the Reed ship as one of the
head rather than of the heart and will
continue him in his committee mem
bership. Yesterday's proceedings seem not
only to have settled the financial plank,
but the tariff plank, also, ol the next
national republican platform. A sketch
of the proposed tariff provisions, which
it is said was either drawn up by Ma
jor McKinley himself or was submitted
to him for approval, - proposes an in
crease of duties all along the line suf
ficient for the needs of the treasury
and the re-imposition of protective
duties on wool and sugar. The first
four paragraphs of the platform are
devoted to a denunciation of the demo
cratic policy, to which if ascribed the
aommercial and industrial depression
that baa prevailed during the last three
years, and a laudation of the republi
can policy of protection which had pre
vailed for thirty years previously.
There is a strong recommendation for
the renewal of reciprocity agreements.
There is also a recommendation for the
imposition of 10 per cent duty on im
porta in foreign bottoms as foreshad
owed in Governor Foraker'a statement
published yesterday morning.
The language of the platform is de
scribed as forceful, alliterative and full
of catchy phrases inch as are calcu
lated to bring down the house.

Not Law.
Wasuikotoi, D. C, June 10 The
resolution introduced by Senator
Allen extending time one year
lo which the settlers on the Otoe
and Missouri lands may pay for the r
lands failed to become a law for the
reason that the president has refused
to eign it. It is said that the chief
executive takes the view that he has
authority to sign the bill within ten
days of the day of passage even after

republican convention nominated a
ticket pre-ordained from the first by
the Ohio political managers w ho prac
tically controlled the gathering and
named William McKinlev of Ohio and
Garrett A. Ilohart of New Jer-ev for

on the first ballot w ith many votes to
(pare, just as toon as the word was

safely landed, that Mr. McKinley 's
friends desired the election of Mr.
The chief supporters of the other un
successful candidates for t tie presi
dency, Mr. I.dge for Red, Mr. Hep
burn for Allison, Governor Hastings
for Quay and Mr. Depew for Morton,
came out in ring ng l.ttle speeches
movir.g to make McKinley 'a nomina
tion unittiimous and pledgii g him the
loyaL support of their respective states.
When to these assurances Mr. Piatt
added his tiersonal promise of friendly
co-operation the cup of happiness of
the McKinley men whs full.
Mr. Depew was at ids best in moving
to make McKinley's nomination unani
mous. He happily said hi felt he was
now nominating a inner. Itwasquine
evident he did not feel in the same
frame of mind w hen be placed Mr. Mor
ton in nomination, for he, most usually
for him spoiled one of his best points.
When leading up to what it was sup
posed would evoke a burst of applause
for P.laine, he inadvertantly substituted
the name of James A. Garfield for James
G. Blaine and was ignoniiniously cor
rected by the bystanders.
Another amusing little slip was per
pert rated by the permanent chairman,
Senator Thurston, who, by the way,
made a most excellent presiding officer.
The incident clearly showed the way his
mind was running. When nominations
for vice-prt sident were called for and
Judge Fort took the stand, the chair
man introduced him as "Mr. Ilohart of
New Jersey," the man whom the Mc
Kinleyites had determined to nomin
ate. When the laughter thie blunder
occasioned called hit attention to it, he
adroitly passed it off by saying: "Mr.
Ilohart of New Jersey will now be nom
inated by Judge Fort."
Whatever enthusiasm was lacking in
the early daya of the convention was
supplied when the nominations were
made. A more boisterous scene of
yelling, plume and banner waving and
other manifestations of ecstary has se -dom
lieen hear' or seen than that
which for nearly half an hour occupied
the convention after the nomination of
Mr. McKinley.

by a splendid field of track ari.-toerats.
Mike Dwyer arrived yesterday morning
with his two cracks, Ben Brush and
Ben Eder, and Byron McClelland
brought in Prince Lief and Nimrod.
Ben Brush and Prince Lief are given
top weightB, 127 pounds, while Don
Carido and Argentina are burdened
with only 119 and 117, respectively. All
the others are imposted 122 pounds.
Ijist night it appeared that ' Dyer's
entry, the two Bens, will get to the post
favorite, with Lief and Loki well
played. The betting will be lively.
In recent trials, the derby distance,
one and a half miles, was covered by
Lief in 2:35, Eder in 2:372' and by Ben
Brush in 2:41, though each was under
diff rent track conditions.

Ever since Hacbenberger won the
Decoration day road race la--t year upon
an old and heavy wheel he has been a
hot favorite with the Denver pt ople,
and he hae gradually come out of ob
scurity and has had some training. The
wheelmen, however, bad steadily main
tained that Hamilton, with his exper
ience at track racing and years of train
ing, would prove the best man in a
track race, and after months of discus
lion and careful preparation the two
men wers brought together yesterday
under the most favorable conditions.
B6th road wheels of eighty gear and
were in the best condition for the great
est effort to be made. Tfcey were start
ed from opposite sides of the track and
the race was swift from the start, the
first five miles being mada in 11 :52, the
first ten in 24 :16, the record for the dis
tance. Hamilton led for five mile?,
when his opponent passed bim, and
after that Hachenbarger seemed to be
able to spurt or drop behind as he pleas
ed, and finished one lap ahead. Six
thousand people saw the race.
The one mile professional, paced race,
was run by C. I. Himetreet in 2:07 1 5.
This is the fastest time ever made on a
track paced by a single wheel. The
other events were a one mile novice,

New York, June 20. R. G. Dun &
Co. will say in their review of trade:
Failures for the week have been 276
in the United States, against 228 last
year, and twenty-eight in Canada
against thirty-one last year.
There are continued signs Oat a
gain in business has begun. Stocks
have gone higher than they were after
the artificial break ten days ago.
Wheat and cotton are in better demand.
There Is more confidence in monetary
circles and the tendency toward shrink
age In great industries seems in some
measure at least to be checked. While
the outcome of the democratic conven
tion is uncertain and the great crops
are not yet wholly beyond danger, a
sure and Btrong improvement could
hardly be expected, but the tone in
business circles has grown distinctly
more hopeful. Clearing bouse ex
changes for the past week are 3.4 per
cent less than in 1893.
The boot and shoe industry not only
holds its place as the most prosperous
of the great industries, but reporte
some gain both in order and prices.
Textile manufactures do not gain.
There is rather more bopefullness,
which is felt in the arrest of the de
cline in wool, Prices average no lower
than June 1, and sales do not decrease.
Manufactures await orders which
clothiers hope for soon, hut are not yet
ready to give, and the only changes
in prices are declines of 5 t 10 per cent
in some very low grade goods. The
only change in cottons is a reduction in
bleach shirtings and standards to the
lowest price ever resched, though the
change discloses no weakness, but a be
lief that the time has come when Bales
can be effected by reduction, and large
tales are now reported. Stocks of deal
cre are bound to be so low that rcplen
itbment would now make a great change
in the condition of the industry.
The waiting in iron and steel brings
a tlightly lower average of pricet, the
lowett since April 1, and only 1.8 per
cent above the lowest of the year,
though the combinations make no
change in quotations.

as an indicaiion that it will confine its

in thit matter, carefully verified, seem
to be about as follows :
Certain New York republicans (not
Including Mr. Piatt) repeatedly visited
Mr. Hanna'e headquarters yesterday to
solicit that gentleman's c -operation in
biinging about the nomination of Gov
ernor Morton. Mr. Hanna in tu n
questioned these gentlemen as to their
knowledge of Governor Morton's in
tentions. He referred them to the
governor's te'egram to Mr. Depew Sat
urday last, in which he stated without ideation that he would not take
the second place on the ticket. In
these circumstances Mr. Hanna de
sired to know what reason these gen
tlemen had for believing that Governor
Morton had so suddenly shifted lrt

faction to representation from Texas
was deferred until the Grant-Cuney
case as settled. Under the order of
business yesterday forty-five minutes
wa given each side. General Gros-
v -ii t of Uhio opened for trie Grant tac
tion, basing his argument principally
on usurpation of power by Chairman
Cuney of the Texas convention.
E. H. Terrell appeared for the Cu
ney faction and John Grant presented
his own case. Dr. Grant presented the
mcord of the Second convention show
ing that 641 members of the first con

second convention. Thit was denied
hy the other side. Mr. Cuney closed
the argument in a ten minutes' speech.
At 12:20 the debate waa closed and
the committee went into executive ses-
