"The press dispatches overlooked one
important feature ol the Kentucky con
vtntion" remarked Elmer M. Davis of
Omaha, who overheard Major Johnson's
talk. "I refer to the inteose enthusi
asm' for brysn which marked the pro
ceedings. I luippened to be in Lexing
ton the dny preceediiig the convention,
and concluded I would stop oil at
Frankfort to see what a representative
i . ... - i .
like. I never saw a better dressed or a
tuore intelligent body of men in my life.
Every mention, of Brya's name received
0 storm of applause that lasted soine
times for several minutes. There was
aparently no effort to work up any en
thusiasm for him. On the contrary, it
was palpably evident that many of the
leaders were opposed to any sort of de
monstration for the Nebraska!., but they
:ould no more keep it down than you
could head off a western cyclone.' What
1 saw at Frankfort yesterday convinces
mo beyond nil shadow of doubt that
Bryan is now the democratic idol and
unless some unforeseen accident occurs
4n the meantime he will be renominated
for president by the next democratic na
tional convention unanimously and by
declamation. Kentucky has soundetl
the keynote for the campaign of 1900.

OUR WASIIINOTOX LETTER.
The House of Reed met on Monday as
Usual. The Speaker took the Chair und
haiil to himself:
Mr. 8pttker, you will now come to
order. He further remarked: "Ido.uot;
heliwvr in the efficacy of prayer hence,
we will dispense with that ceremony to
day." Then he stated that the "proceed
ings of the previous meeting would be
The S;eiiker then announced, "as there
was no unlinished business on hand, and
ven if theru was I do not consider my
self a quorum at this stage of the gam),
lience, we will pass that order." Throw
ing his eye to a cock on the left side, he
Niid: "Did I hear a motion to adjourn?
Well I should smile. My hearing is
very acute and when it conies to ad
journing, I am quorum from quorom
vill." H put the question: , 'If I am in fa
vor of adjourning, I will please signify,
flaying aye. If I am opposed, I don't
know myself. I have it. The House
is ndjournde." So ended the great pro
ceedings of the House of Representa
tives, which stands nearer to the people
than aoy other branch of the govern

CHICAGO, June 8. If tha silver Re
publican who matin Chicago today
had been assembled to chooaa a presiden
tial candidate they would have named
William J.Bryan with a shout. Many
uf tha delegate were qestionsd tonight
fegarding their preferences for a candidate
in 1M0, and almost without exception
they declared for the brilliant young Ne
braskan. "Bryani' aakl Coogrtsaman John F
Hhafroth of Daover, "la my oaedidato for
1900. I bsUera he la the only man at the
prweset time available to receive the sup
port of .Democrat, PopeliaU and silver
kViuUkaoa Togo to tome one else
milif involve us in prejudices which
could not easily le overcome. Nearly
every other candidate would be involved
in some way in the issues of tha war,
which would make him less available
than Mr. Bryan. The object of this orga-
I nidation is to more effectively throw our
forces in favor of bi-nieUillism to enlist
under our banner Republicans in the
Kast, who at presnt are not ready to go
at one leap to the Democratic party and
at the same time to hold our forces in
such a position that if the Democratic
party should surrenderto Cleaveinnd and
Carlisle the bi-metaltists would never
I It wilt serve the double purpose of draw
jnif from the Kepulicao ranks men whom
we would not otherwise get, and at the
same time make the Democrats under
xtandthnt they must bn true to silver.
For thews reasons Bryan is the most
S'W. Uelford of Denver was leas positive.
"Many things," he said, "may happen be
tween now and then. We will all support
i him; we will be happy to support him
i if he is the uominee. If the Democratic
party should conclude to nominate anoth-
.it nifin I uh 111M f 'i i-rif Tu u-nrTiivnA
At all eveuts I want Towne for vice pres
ident." BRYAN IS THE MAN.
"I supported Bryan last fall, though
up to that time I was an enthusiastic
Rjpublican" said Sanator I). F. Morgan
of Minnesota, 'if the dominent issue is
the restoration of bi-metallism (as I be
lieve it will be through out the country)
in the ordinary course of events, I do
not see how we can consider any other
man. However, tlm cause is above any
candidate and above any man's ambi
tion." Governor Frank A. Day of Minnesota
said: "If the National Convention were
held tomorrow and I were a delegate, I
should vote for Bryan."
Senator Fred J. Dubois of Idaho, said
he had no candidate. "I am for the
cause," he continued. '! am for the
man whom the combine silver advocates
Chairman, Charles A. Towne of Min
nesota said: Ob, we are not considering
candidates now. Any man who, leads
we will follow.
SENTIMENT IS STRONG.
B. IL Lien, Sioux Falls.'S. D. I fa
M. L. Fox, editor of Sioux Falls Press.
Of course I am for Bryan.
Colonel A. J. Keller of Hot Springs,
Ark. I want Bryan if he is alive in 1900.
U. S. G. Cherry, chairman of the
South Dakota Silver Republican party.
I am for Bryan.
Ex-State Senator, F, P. Cantwell of
Chicago, delegate-at-large to the national
Populist convention Bryan is the only
man. I do not see how we can win with
out him. He would win on an indepen
dent ticket, if the Democrats turn him
A. J. Kingman of Henry county, III.
Count me for Bryan-
Dr. Erank Powell, ex-mayor of La
Cross, Wis. Bryan, first last and all
George 8. Bowen, editor of the Bimet
allism Chicago. I favor Bryan. He is
the most available candidate by all
means. He is in the hearts of the peo-
! pie. The people respond to Jnm.
George W. Thompson oi jaconia,
Wash. Bryan is my candidate now,
and I sea do reason why he tthould not
continue to be.
After tlte night session and while the
delegates were talking in groups, some
one proposed three ch.er for Bryan.
They followed like three claps of thun

A BLOW TO SLAVERY.
lUnry tl. Ktsnley uu the llmult of the
I'artltlan of Afrlea.
The partition of Africa among the
European powers, as will have been
seen, was tho first effectivo blow dealt
to the slave trade in inner Africa, writes
Henry M. Stanley in llorper'a. The
eutt coast, whence a few years ago the
slaves marched in battalions to scatter
over the wide interior of the, continent
for pillage and devastation, is to-day
guarded by garrisons of Herman and
IlritLsh troops. The island of Zanzibar,
where they were equipped for their
murderous enterprises, Is under the
British flag. Trading steamers ruu up
and d()wu the coast; tlio Tana and"Jub
rivers aro Ixdng uavigntud by British
steamers; two lines of stations accuro
coininuiilcationb inland for three hun
dred miles from the sea. 'InJ. von Viss
mnn is advancing upon Lako Tanga
nilca; 1 1 err Bistrchcrt is inarching upon
Lake Victoria; Capt. Willlanis is hold
ing Uganda. Thcae resulU have fol
lowed very rapidly the political parti
tion of the continent
The final blow has been given by tho
act of the Brussels nntl-slavery confer
ence, lately ratified by the power,
wherein modern civilisation has fully
declared Ita opinions upon the question
of slavery, and no single power will
dare remain Indifferent to them, under
penalty of obloony and shame.
