COLD MEN WIN.
Mlchnel Unran, the Minnesota Democratic
I-ouder, Controls the Convention.
St. Paul, Minn., June 13. As a de
cidedly dramatic close to tho most ex
citing Democratic State convention
held in Minnesota for many years,
Michael Doran, for a scoro of years
the political leader nnd National com
mitteeman from this State, yesterday
defeated every move of thoso who
sought to bring about his defeat,
winning not only in tho passage of a
gold platform, but also in being
chosen by a large vote to lead the
Minnesota delegation at Chicago.
After a spirited defiance of his ene
mies in tho present convention, ho
begged to be allowed to retire from
the delegation, and nsked that Daniel
W. Lawlerof St. Paul, one of tho best
and most favorably known Democrats
in the Northwest be named in his
stead. There were vigorous protests
from the convention, but his request
was granted, and Mr. Doran grace
fully retired, after winning one of tho
hardest fights of his life.

The Coming Notional Convention.
St. l.ot'is, Mo., .luno 13. Ex-Sen-alor
Thomas a Piatt of Now York
said this morning: "Under no circum
stances will Governor Morton accept
tho nomination for tho Vice Presi
dency. We havo como hero for tho
Presidency, nothing else."
"In nil my life," doclarcd Mr. Piatt,
"I never heard of a moro high handed
proceeding. The single- jmrposo of
the national committee appears to bo
to exclude from participation In tho
proceedings of the convention all per
sons who have not been for McKlnley
since tho boglnning of the Presiden
tial contest Tho tost applied Is not
'Is this contestant's cause just, or
upon what facts docs ho found his
claim?' but, 'Is this contestant or that
contcsteo for McKlnley?' If ho Is,
In ho goes, If ho is not, out he ic
kicked. This cannot but be a confes
sion of tho inherent weakness ot
tho McKlnloy movement Otherwise,
why is it found necessary to deprive
good mon and good Republicans, hon
estly and fairly chosen to bo delegates
to this convention, of their right to
sharo in its deliberations nnd aid in
tho establishment of its judgment? I
shall appeal to tho convention itself
for a reconsideration of the commit
tee's action. Sucli gross abuse of au
thority shall not go uncontested.
They aro riding rough shod over
everything. The question of a man's"
titlo to a scat in not considered on Its
merits, but as to his position on Pres
idential candidates, Mr. Halm, the
member of the committee from Ohio,
has declared that tho only question
involved in thoso contests is whether
or not the mnn is for Mclvinley, and
that line of policy la what Now tork
"As for tho Now York contests,"
Piatt declared, "they must bo settled
in favor of the regular delegations.
There aro twelve of them. 1 do not
now assume that they must bo all so
settled, but refer more particularly
to that arising in tho Twelfth district
in Now Yorit city."
In tho district to wlilcli Piatt re
ferred, Cornelius llliss and S. V. U.
Crugcr nppear as contestccs and How
ard Carroll and T. V. llarncs as Piatt
"if llliss nnd Crugcr are seated,"
Piatt contluucd, with tight drawn
purblng of his lips, "the delegation
from the state of New York will murch
out of tlio convention hull."
Piatt paused a moment and added,
as If he had mcntalty pictured tho re
sult to himself, "the place assigned to
Vtio New York delegation in tho con
vention will look like a big hole with
a rim around it. The result will be
thu same if an unjust decision is
reached In tho Thirteenth district."
In the contest from the Thirteenth
district referred to by Piatt, William
S. Urookfleld and Anson O, McCook,
anti-Piatt men, are the con tes tee:;, and
John Uelsenwober nnd Alexander T.
Mason the Piatt contestants.
Piatt made it as unmistakably clear'
in his manner as in his speech, that
ho and his would bolt. There was
every suggestion of sincerity.
It is learned from mem hers of the
national committee, none tho loss,
that in all probability the six Piatt men
will be thrown out and thu other men
placed on tho temporary roll.
When what Piatt had said was re
ported to Mr. Ilanna he declined to
discuss the matter in any way. "I
biiiiu not get excited over this evon it
Mr. Piatt baid it," ho remarked, and
when assured that Mr. Piatt had
made the remark, ho was not dis
turbed. One of Plntt's friends stated em
phatically that the position of Mr.
PUtt was that in case six regularly
elected delegates In New York hhould
ho unseated, there would bo sixty
more delegates who would walk out o'f
tho convention. This view Is contro
verted by some of tho delegates from
New Yoric now on tho ground, who
say that there aro from twenty-fivo to
thirty delegates from New York who
are ardent McKlnley men and cannot
bo expected to follow Piatt In any
Members of tho national committee
thinlc the talk of n New York bolt is
wholly for the purposo of the influ
ence it may havo on tho decision of
contests yet to be decided.

We aro not disposed to criticise that
action. Hut tho selection ot Senator
Proctor for permanent chairman of

St. Louis, Mo., Juno 13, It is possi
ble that tho National Lcaguo of Re

bay nbout tho Vice Presidential candi
date. Tho league Is largely for Mc
Klnley, but there is n division of sen
timent in regard to tho second place
Ex-Ciovernor 1). Russell Urown of
Rhode Island is a member ot tho
league In good standing and his
friends will put him forward as the
right man to combino with McKlnley
on tho national ticket. E. A. MeAlpl'n
of New York Is president of tho
league, and naturally his friends aro
anxious to see him honored. McAlpin
Is adjutant general on tho stall' of
Governor Morton of New York, and
tho argument yvill bo advanced that
his nomination would please Morton,
Governor Morton seems to be the
choice of tho national committee
among all tho New York candidates,
and if he would accept thu nomination
there is some reason to believe that
the Vice Presidency would beheld out
to him by tho powers that be, provided
tlint Piatt's consent could be secured.
Tho friends of Garret A. Ilobart of
New Jersey claim that Quay is com
mitted to him, and there arc surface
indications that give probability to
this stony. Governor Hastings of
Pennsylvania Is ulso freely mentioned.

Evans himself has mado no clTort to
