Whun General Warner calleil tho con
vontion to order nt 2:.t0 o'clock tho com
mittee on permanent organization re
lorted the permanent organization of tho
convention in this ordor: Chairman, Al
len W. Thurmtin of Ohio; secretary, Jo
seph Hutchinson of Colorado; assistant
secretaries, Lj Crundall of Washington
nnd Amos Simpson of Illinois; sergeant-nt-nrms,
Champion S. Chaso of No
brnskn. Tho Illinois delegation had consider
able trouble in selecting its members of
tho committeo on order, nnd finally A.
J, Streeter of Illinois, tho vencrablo ox
greenbackor and ox-presidential candi
date, was selectod. After this tho roll
Was called for members of tho com
Inilteo on resolutions and theso wero
chosen by tho respective state delega
tions. Among tho well known men named as
vico presidents wore; Captain Jack
Crnwford, tho frontier scout of Now
Mexico; T. V. Powderly, general master
workman of tho Knights of Labor;
Mnrtin McQinnis of Montana, ex-Sena-tor
J. II. Doolittlo of Wisconsin and
Congressman Bryan of Nobrosko. From
Uio committeo on credentials came ro
iort that 810 delegates wero entitled to
vote nnd that they camo from 4'J stntes
and territories. By this time tho decks
lind been clearod for tho pormnnont or
ganization nnd Allon W. Thurman wa3
welcomed with cheers when oscortod to
Chairman Thurman' Spoeoh.
Chairman Thurman said: Tho fight
between thoso who boliove that tho cir
culating medium of this country should
bo hard money that is real money, gold
nd silvor, and papor redeemable in tho
lame and thoso who boliove in tho uso
9f soft monoy, that is paper, promises to
pay monoy, redeemablo in othor promises
to pay, is on. Since tho late demand in
tho cast to havo tho government issuo
bonds and tho cry that is now made for
the unconditional repeal of tho Shorman
law, charging it, rogardloss of factB,
tvith nil tho ills that flesh is heir to,
aught to make this perfectly apparent to
very thinking man, for should tho
Sherman law bo ropoaled without Bub
itituting anything in lion thereof, it
means tho final destruction of silvor
tnonoy as a measure of value.
I deny that gold alono nffords n suf
ficient basis upon which tho circulating
medium and credits of this country rest,
nnd I chargo that thoso who demand that
Silver bo destroyod will seo tho effect of
tho paper monoy. If tho pcoplo keep
paying tho national debt anything liko
tho rato thoy havo been paying it, our
national banks, as banks of issuo, will
liavo to go out of existence. It is true
that of lata years, on account of tho
liigh premium ujton government bonds,
little, if any, profit has been mado upon
their circulation, yet in tho long run tho
profits upon it havo beon immonse; nnd
if they can succeed in persuading con
gress to issuo nioro bonds, bearing a low
rato of interest, so thoy can buy them at
par, the profits will again bo trcmondous.
With theso bunking corporations, there
fore, tho question is fast resolving iteolf
Into n ground-hog caso no bonds, no
In conclusion he begged leave to sub
mit tho following: Tirst, let our advor
tarics agree to tho free coinngo of silver
nt cither tho ratio of 15J or 10 to 1.
profor tho former. If thoy do, we will
agree to tho unconditional repeal of tho
Sherman law. Next, amend tho na
tional banking laws so as to permit any
national bank to issuo its notes up to tho
face valuo of 100 per cent upon tho do
posits of 00 per cont with tho United
Btatcs treasury in cither United States
gold or silver rather than subsidy silver.
Fowderly and Donnelly Talk.
Loud calls for Powderly brought him
to tho platform, Tho labor loader said
that 7."),000 Knights of Labor wore stand
lug on tho brink of ruin. Ton thousand
alono were idle and 00,000 moro in tho
past would feel bitterly tho effect of tho
effort to demonetize silvor, for tho ex
isting danger was not ono confined to
nny particular section. Tho country
thonld bo nblo to make its own currency
without any dictation from across tho
water. If thore had been nny time in
history when it was necessary to be cool
and deliberate that timo was at hand.
Powdorly conclndod amidst npplauso,
dud then tho convention, as ono man,
shouted for Ignatius Donnelly, and tho
enge of Minnosota was half carried, half
rushed to tho platform. Ho spoko for
over an hour, eliciting repeated enthusi
asm nnd at times verging dangerously
near an inflammatory lino.
Congressman Bryan of Nebraska was
next introduced and spoko nt some length.
What did domootization mean," ho
naked, and sovcral voices replied "revo
lution. "No, my( friends," was tho re
tpmmo, "not that. ' I bellovo that every
evil has its remedy at tho ballot box."
