B 1 ( - - StTj0 , UI8 , Mo. , June ID. When the
H \ " f 'aelc oa s to the national Republican
H * -convention assembled at the conven-
Jp . 4 tion hall this morning- , the word was
Wk i passed around that the prog-ram was
Hy JB' to adopt the platform at the morning
B -session , nominate the candidate for
B'W ' ' President in the afternoon and name
H S 'the Vice President at the eveningses -
H 1 -sion. The JilcKinlcy leaders had ar-
H | ranged to push things through and all
H J "preparations had beein made accord
s' * \ "ingly.
M \ At , : * 52 o'clock Permanent Chair-
K | | man Thurston rapped for order , which
Kj i "was soon partially secured. Then
i 3 , spectators and delegates arose for the
HI 1 prayer by Dr. John R. . Scott of Jack-
Hj -sonville , Fla. , the second colored pas-
vf ) tor who has conducted the devotional
K . C prelude. Although Dr. Scott's voice
H1 f was a strong one , so great was the
H \ confusion of the entering delegates
H Jfe and spectators that it could be told
K S only from the movement of the min-
H [ w * ister's lips that he was praying.
1'j Then Chairman Thurston , without
H , * any preliminaries , plunged into busi-
H T ness by announcing that the first
m jfr thing on the program was the report
m t of the committee on resolutions.
H I Senator-elect Joseph Benson Fora-
H [ leer of Ohio advanced to the front and
K' f presented the platform.
H . \ The first sententence of the plank

B 3 started a great cheer among the dule-
H | \ gates on the floor. * When the declara-
B f tion of unalterable opposition to the
\ fiee coinage of silver was read the
Vt \ delegates , led by Senator iiodge and
HJ 3R . Colonel W. A. Stone of Pennsylvania ,
I * \ . r0i5e * a a ° dyFans , canec and hats
V Jj | - waved wildly until the pit looked like
lis > a liurr'talie tossed sea and the galler-
1 | * v ies roared their approval. For two
\ minutes the tumult continued. The
M Y mention of the "gpld standard , ' * while
V v | . received enthusiastically by the
J | \ Elaine , Massachusetts , Connecticutand
JPg \ New York delegations , did not arouse
J ? \ such great enthusiasm.
Jfe | Hawaii and "Monroe doctrine were
l\ applauded , but the enthusiism over
H % the Cuban plank was a general disap-
M pointment. As the plank was read
M Colonel Fred Grant , who sat on the
"f platform with the diitipgi-ish d
I ? V guests , arose and wildly waived about
ja\ bis head the flag of the Cuban revolu-
H W \ tionists , presented by the Cuban
m juuta to James Creelman , the Ameri-
M * v can correspondent , when he was ex-
M ? r- X ec General "Weyler.

K As soon as the applause which
V m greeted the reading of the report of

t mittee had died away the chairman
Ba gX\ announced that he would recognize ,
PV m ' * to move a substitute for the. major 'ty
PV S report , the gentleman from Colorado ,
K W Mr. Teller.
PM' Wi The name of Teller set the V estern-
m. f ers wild. In little scattering squads
a | the handfulls of delegations who had
PW "been sitting under the banners of Col-
PV M orado. of Idaho , of Utah , of Xevada ,
PW ki California and Montana , and some , of
P2 > g those from Tennessee and other
Par % "Western and Southern States , were on
PS v theirfeet waving hats , flagsumbrellas
BV \ , fans and handkerchiefs and cheering.
PK ; gf The fire spread to the galleries and
PV * spread across them until they seemed
PS V to be almost unanimously carrying
pVl j J. the cheer. This lasted for about " two
m , \l\- \ minutes.
pV | Jr [ Tnen there fell over the house a
PSA \ ? deep , profound calm , and the people
pVj i\ \ listened to a man while the clerk pro-
PB V ceeded to read the substitute plitform
pSy 0& . as follows :
PK II "We , the undersigned , members of
Pl 5 the committee on resolutions , being
pVi entirely unable to agree with that
BV J& . portion of the majority report which
Plfi "T" * . treats of the subjects of coinage and
* / / L finance , respectfully submit the fol-
PV Jtfe lowing paragraph as a substitute
PV' is ? ' therefor :
pV' © "The Republican party favors the
BV > Si use of both gold and silver as equal ,
PV \ standard monej' , and pledges its j
PlJ | \ power to secure the free , unrestricted
B 3v and independent coinage of gold and

PKjc ) teen rarts of silver to one of gold. "
HK ( \ TKLLEB MAKES HIS APl'EAI-
Kg/ \ Senator Teller , as he stood on the
PVI tj \ platform to make his final protest to
) v Cm the Republican party against the
Bn r J adoption of a gold standard policy ,
My ? > was a striking figure. Tall , gaunt , be
BBa * -wore the old-fashioned frock coat of
ft * the old-time statesman. His face is
B fe deep-furrowed with lines of thought ,
pV Y r " l an no one wno beheld him as he sur-
l J S rendered all of his old associations for
BW k. t * a eeP conviction on a single topic
piL. * \ ' doubted Ills honesty of purpose. His
BV \ gestures at times were almost fierce.
PK \ Uut his general tone was one of sad-
PS \ ness and regret. He was given a most
PV I respectfnl hearing by the delegates ,
Bar I but except for those in sympathy
BY " \ there was no demonstration on the
BBT ? floor in the early part of his address.
Bit I The f galleries , however , were at
PJH 4 times vociferous , and when lie
B I vehemently asserted the power of the
BlK. Wj United States to control its own
BV - affairs without dictation from Eu-
BlJ C rope in the matter of finance or
Bit \ anything else , many of the delegates
BV j-- % were drawn into the display of enthu-
BBj S- " " * siasm by the wild tumult ubout them ,
mg [ but ho made no effort at dramatic
BV * -effect. He spoke in clear , ringing
m ,3 tones. It was not until toward the
BV' Jf -close of his speech that he became
BBF JJ both impressive and pathetic. His
BY 'B review of his long service in the party
BBJ 1 visibly affected him. As be realized
BY % the step he was about to take he drew
B \ bimself together for a final appeal

DKEP rEKLIXG IS HIS TOXES.
After Mr. Teller had said : "I must
sever my connection with the political
party which makes the gold plank
one of the principal articlea of its
faith , " he paused and swept his ej-es
across the hall. For an instant the
full significance of his defianc-3 failed
to impress itself. Then it sunk home
and the galleries arose with andther
cheer and mingling with the cheer
came a fnsilade of hisses.
A moment later , when Mr. Teller
said that if under such circumstances
he remained in the party he would be
unfaithful to his trust , enthusiastic
cries of " 2Xo , no" came from the dele
gates in the Eastern and Southern
There was deep feeling , almost pa
thos in the Senator's voice and those
nearest could detect the glimmer of
tears in his eyes , in expression of the
grief over his sacrifice which he and
his colleagues made for the sake of
Another demonstration was made
when Mr. Teller folded his arms
across the pink rosebud on his coat
and sank into his seat. The cheers
began this time with the silver men
and spread to the galleries and caught
up in its whirl many of the gold dele
gates who were on their feet from ad
miration , not of the cause , but of the
man , and this time the hisses were
Convention Beside Itself With Excite
ment and Emotion.
The following delegates were those
who walked out : The entire delega
tions of Colorado and Idaho ; three
from Utah , Pettigrew from South Da
kota. Hartman from Montana , Cleve
land and Strother from Nevada. The
Utah men were Cannon , Kearns and
Allen. None of the delegates from
the territories went out. The dele
gates around the Colorado seat broke
off the Colorado standard and sent it
out after them. The Idaho standard
is still stauding.
As a file of stern faced men marched
along the long pathway to the
door a great yell went up before
which every other outbreak of the
day paled into silence. It was a shout
in which admiration , defiance , deris
ion and rage were joined. The band
in the highest gallerj- broke into the
tumult , but its brazen clangor made
no impjression on the vocal storm
and was drowned in it. Finally when
the shout had somewhat subsided the
noise of the band asserted itself
br degrees in the shape of the melody ,
' • Columbia , the Gem of the Ocean. "
Twice and three times was the strain
repeated , and then a voice took up the
words : "Three Cheers for the Red ,
"White and Blue. " and then by degrees
the whole assembly took up the '
chorus with a magnificent burst and
sang "The Army and Navv Forever , " '
"Three Cheers for the Red , White and
Blue. " Two stanzas
were sung by i
this chorus of 12,000 and the band ,
tiring of its work , dropped out of the ' .
In a few moments the chair found a
lulling place in the applause to say : '
"A irentleman from Montana win Hirl i
not go wants to address you. "
Again the hats , the flags and um
brellas waved , again the chorus of
thousands of throats sent forth paeans
and the delegate with the white face
waited. He was Lee Mantle of Mon
Mr. Mantle said that the Montana
delegation was divided. bome would
continue to participate in the proceed
ings , but others would remain silent.
An attempt of Henderson of Iowa ,
to interrupt was cried down by the
delegates and spectators andMr. Mantle -
tlo was allowed to speak to the finish.
When he had finished Chairman
Thurston recognized Senator Brown
of Utah. He said that while he joined
his silver colleagues in their protest
against the reading of silver out of
the party , still he believed that
there were greater issues than even
the financial supremacy of the conn-
try , the tariff , the mercnant marine
and many other things talked about
in the part3 * .
Mr. Brown then moved that the
convention allow three alternates
from the state of Utah to sit in the
convention during the remainder of
the sescion in place of the three regu
lar delegates who had walked out.
This was carried with a viva voce vote
Senator Brown was followed by
A. F. Burleigh of the. State of Wash
ington , who said that his state looked
upon the issues of McKinley and pro
tection as greater questions than the
simple one of a financial standard.
The regular order of business was
'hen demanded and the chair called
/or the naming of state delegation
The convention quieted down after
this scene and the chairmen called
upon the states for the lists of na
tional committeemen selected.
PROTECTION FOR SUGAR.
Sub-Committee Agrees to Eepport a
Plank Declaring' Strongly for It
St. Louis , Ma , June 13. H. T. Oxnard -
nard , president of the American Beet
Sugar Associatian , was given a
-hearing by the sub-committee
on resolutions and after dis
cussion the following resolution was
accepted as a part of the platform to
be reported to the full committee :
"We condemn the present adminis
tration for net keepinsr faith with the
sugar producers of the country ; the
Republican party favors such protec
tion a - ; will lead to the production on
American soil of all the sugar which
the American people use , ana for
which they pay to other countries
more than siOO.000' ,000 annually. "
Mr. Oxnard says that while the res
olutions do not refer specifically to
beet sugar , that is what is meant , as
he regards this as the sugar crop of
the whole country. He says the en
couragement of tht beet sugar indus
try would result in the next five years
in the investment of at least S300.000-
000 in improvements for manufactur

"GOD IN LITTLE THING " LAST
"Aro Not Two Sparrows Sold * Tof a
Farthing , and One of Them Shall Vafi
Fall na the Ground Without Your
rather" 3Iat lOS0.
- < 4X ft * OU see the Bible
dy wiH not be limited
] v ( in the choice of
I symbols. There is
1 hardly a beast ,
, .cJi or l > iraor in
sect , which has not
been called to il
lustrate some Di
vine truth the
ox's patience , the
ant's industry , the
spider's skill , the hind's surefootedness -
ness , the eagle's speed , the dove's gen
tleness , and even the sparrow's mean
ness and insignificance. In Oriental
countries none but the poorest people
buy the sparrow and eat it so very
littie meat is there on the bones , and so
very poor is it , what there is of it.
The comfortable population would not
think of touching it any more than
you would think of eating a bat or a
lamprey. Now , says Jesus , if God
takes such good care of a poor bird that
is not worth a cent , will he not care for
you , an immortal ?
We associate God with revolutions.
We can see a Divine purpose In the
discovery of America , in the inven
tion of the art of printing , in the ex
posure of the Gunpowder Plot , in the
contrivance of the needle-gun , in the
ruin of an Austrian or Napoleonic
despotism ; but how hard it is to see
God in the minute personal affairs of
our lives ! We think of God as making
a record of the starry host , but cannot
realize the Bible truth that he knows
how many hairs are on our head. It
seems a grand thing that God provided
for hundreds of thousands of Israelites
in the desert ; but we cannot appre
ciate the truth that , when a sparrow
is hungry , God stoops down and opens
its mouth and puts the seed in. We
are struck with the idea that God fills
the universe with his presence , but can
not understand how he encamps in the
crystal palace of a dewdrop , or finds
room to stand between the alabaster
pillars of the pond lily. We can see
God in the clouds. Can we see God in
these flowers at our feet ?
We are apt to place God on some
great stage or to try to do it ex
pecting him there to act out his stu
pendous projects , but we forget that
the life of a Cromwell , an Alexander ,
or a Washington , or an archangel , is
not more under Divine inspection than
your life or mine. Pompey thought
there must be a mist over the eyes of
God because he so much favored
Caesar. But there is no such mist. He
sees everything. We say God's path is
in the great waters. True enough ; but
no more certainly than he is in the
water in the glass on the table. We
say God guides the stars in their
courses. Magnificent truth ! but no
more certain truth than that he de
cides which road or street you shall
take in coming to church. Understand
that God does not sit upon an indiffer
ent or unsympathetic throne , but that
he sits down beside you to-day , and
stands beside me to-day , and no affair
of our lives is so insignificant but that
it is of importance to God.
In the first place , God chooses our
occupation for us. I am amazed to
see how many people there are dissatis
fied with the work they have to do. I
think three-fourths wish they were in
some other occupation , and they spend
a great deal of time in regretting that
they got in the wrong trade or profes
sion. I want to tell you that God put
into operation all the influences which
led you to that particular choice. Many
of you are not in the business that you
expected to be in. You started for the
ministry and learned merchandise ; you
started for the law and you are a phy
sician ; you preferred agriculture and
you became a mechanic. You thought
one way ; God thought another.
Hugh Miller says , "I will be a stone
mason ; " * God says , "You will be a
geologist. " David goes out to attend
his father's sheep ; God calls him to
govern a nation. Saul goes out to hunt
his father's asses , and before he gets
back finds the crown of regal domin
ion. How much happier would we be
if we were content with the places
God gave us ! God saw your tempera
ment and all the circumstances by
which you were surrounded , and I be
lieve nine-tenths of you are in the
work you are best fitted for. I hear a
great racket in my watch , and I find
that the han .s and the wheels and the
springs are getting out of their places.
I sent it down to the jeweler's and say ,
"Overhaul that watch , and teach the
wheels , and the spring , and the hands
to mind their own business. " You
know a man having a large estate. He
gathers his working hands in the
morning , and says to one , "You go and
trim that vine ; " to another , "You go
and weed those flowers ; " to another ,
"You plough that tough glebe ; " and
each one goes to his particular work.
The owner of the estate points the
man to what he knows he can do best ,
and so it is with the Lord.
I remark further that God has ar
ranged the place of our dwelling. What
particular city or town , street or house
you shall live in seems to be a mere
matter of accident You go out to hunt
for a house , and you happen to pass
up a certain street , and happen to see
a sign , and you select that house. Was
it all happening so ? Oh , no ! God
guided you in every .step. He foresaw
the future. He knew all yourcircum-
stanccs , and he selected just that one
house as better for you than any of the
ten thousand habitations in the city.

and helped you. You say , "How fucft ?

God sent that friend just as certainly ' •
as he sent the angel to strengthen
Christ. Your domestic friends , year
business friends , your Christian
friends. God sent them to bless you , ,
and if any of them have proved trait
orous , It is only to bring out the value
of those who remain. If some die , it is
only that they may stand at the out
posts of heaven to greet you at your ;
* . A
I remark again , that God puts down
the limit to our temporal prosperity.
The world of finance seems to have
no God in it. _ You cannot tell where a
man will land. The affluent fall ; the
poor rise. The ingenious fail ; the ig
norant succeed. An enterprise opening
grandly , shuts in bankruptcy , while
out of the peat dug up from some New
England marsh the millionaire builds
his fortune. The poor man thinks it
is chance that keeps him down ; the
rich man thinks it is chance which
hoists him.and ; they are both wrong.
It is so hard to realize that God rules
the money market , and has a hook in
the nose of the stock-gambler , and that
all the commercial revolutions of the
world shall result in the very best for
God's dear children.
My brethren , do not kick against the
Divine allotments. God knows just
how much money it is best for you to
lose. You never gain unless it is best
for you to gain. You go up when it is
best for you to go up , and go down
when it is best for you to go down.
Prove it , you say. I will. Rom. 8 :
28 , "All things work together for good
to them that love God. " You go into
a factory , and you see twenty or thirtj'
wheels , and they are going in different
directions. This band is rolling off
this way , and another band another
way ; one down and another up. You
say , "What confusion in a factory ! "
Oh , no , all these different bands are
only different parts of the machinery.
So I go into your life and see strange
things. Here is one providence pull
ing you in one way and another in an
other way. But these are differ
ent parts of one machinery by which
he will advance your everlasting and
Now you know that a second mort
gage , and a third and fourth mortgage ,
are often worth nothing. It is the
first mortgage that is a good invest
ment. I have to tell you that every
Christian man has a first mortgage
on every trial , and on every disaster ,
and it must make a payment of eternal
advantage to his soul. How mauy
worriments it would take out of your
heart , if you believed that fully. You
buy goods and hope the pi ice will go
up , but you are in a-fret and a frown
for fear the price will go down. You
do not buy the goods using your best
discretion in the matter , and then say ,
"O , Lord , I have done the best I could ;
I commit this whole transaction into
Thy hands ! " That is what religion is
good for or it is good for nothing.
* * *
A man of large business concludes to
go out of his store , leaving much of
his investments in the business , and
he says to his sons , "Now , I am going
to leave this business in your hands.
Perhaps I may come back in a little
while , and perhaps not. While I am
gone you will please to look after af
fairs. " After awhile the father comes
back and finds everything at loose
ends , and the whole business seems to
be going wrong. He says , "I am go
ing to take possession of this business
you know I never fully surrendered
it ; and henceforth consider yourselves
subordinates. " Is he not right in do-
iDg it ? He saves the business. The
Lord seems to let us go on in lifo ,
guided by our own skill , and we make
miserable work of it. God comes down
to our shop , or our store , and says ,
"Things are going wrong , I am go
ing to take charge. I am Master , and
I know what is best , and I proclaim my
authority. " We are merely subordi
nates. It is like a boy at school with
a long sum that he cannot do. He has
teen working at it for hours , making
figures here and rubbing out figures
there , and it is all mixed up ; and the
teacher , looking over the boy's shoul
der , knows that he cannot get out of : t ,
and. cleaning the slate says. "Begin
again. " Just so God says to us. Our
affairs get into an inextricable entan
glement , and he rubs everything out
and says , "Begin again ! " Is he not
wise and loving in so doing ?
I think the trouble is , that there is
so large a difference between the Di
vine and the human estimate as to
what is enough. I have heard of people
ple striving for that which is enough ,
but I never heard of anyone who had
enough. What God calls enough for
roan , man calls too little. What man
calls enough , God says is too much.
The difference between a poor man
and a rich man is only the difference
in banks. The rich man puts his
money in the Washington bank or the
Central bank or the Metropolitan bank ,
or some other bank of that character ,
while the poor man comes up and
makes his investments in the bank of
him who runs all the quarries , all the
mines , all the gold , all the earth , all
heaven. Do you think a man can fail
when he is backed up like that ?
You may have seen a map on which
is described , with red ink , the travels
of ths children of Israel through the
desert of the promised land. You see
how they took this and that direction ,
crossed the river and went through the
sea. _ Do you know God has made a
nlimi.Ma , ull 1dllW WHMIIW M I' ' l IIII-.I
map of your life with paths leading
up to this bitterness and that success ,
through this river and across that sea ?
but , blessed be God , that path always
comes out at the Promised Land.
Mark that ! Mark that !
I remark , again , that all those
things that seem to be but accidents
in our life are under the Divine super
vision. We sometimes seem to be go
ing helmless and anchorless. You say ,
, 'If I had some other trade ; If I had not
there this summer ; If I had lived
line other house. " You have no
. /S to say that. Every tear you
' ° "ery step you have taken , every
, 1U liavo carried is uner Di-
y ti0Qj and that eveQ whIch

Joseph found his way to _ .

tening two eternities together.
There is a man who says , "That'
doctrine cannot be true , because things
do go so very wrong. " I reply it is no
inconsistency on the part of God , but
a lack of understanding on our part.
I hear that men are making very fine
shawls in some factory. I go in on
the first floor , and see only the raw
materials , and I ask , "Are these the
shawls I have heard about ? " "No , "
says the manufacturer , "go up to the
next floor ; " and I go up , and there I
begin to see the design. But the man
says. "Do not stop heie ; go up to the
top floor of the factory , and you will
see the idea fully carried out. " I dose
so , and , having come to the top , see
the complete pattern of an exquisite
shawl. So in our life , standing down
en a low level of Christian experience
we do not understand God's dealings.
He tells us to go up higher and higher ,
until we begin to understand the Di
vine meaning with respect to us , and
we advance until we stand at the very
gate of heaven , and there see God's
idea all wrought out a perfect idea of
mercy , of love , of kindness. And we
say , "Just and true are all Thy ways. "
It is all right at the top. Remember
there is no inconsistency on the part of
God , but it is only our mental and
Some of you may be disappointed
this summer vacations are apt to be
disappointments but whatever your
perplexities and worriments , know
that "Man's heart deviseth his way ,
hut the Lord direeteth his steps. " Ask
these aged men in this church if it is
not so. It has been so in my own life.
One summer I started for the Adirondacks -
dacks , but my plans were so changed
that I landed in Liverpool. I studied
lav/ and I get into the ministry. I
resolved to go as a missionary to
China , and I stayed in the United
States , thought I would like to be in
the east , and I went to the west ; all
the circumstances of life , all my work ,
different from that which I expected.
"A man's heart deviseth his way , but
the Lord direeteth his steps. "
So , my dear friends , this day take
home this subject. Be content with
such things as you have. From every
grass-blade under your feet learn the
lesson of Divine care , and never let the
