A NlglitScfiHlon Without Accomplish
ing Anything.
ST. Louis , Juno 0. The committee on res-
lutlons had a very long nnd at times , stormj
scftslon last night nnd did not ndjourn until
2IW : this morning. All sorth of rumors , re
parding the action of the committee were
floating about the corridors of the
Southern but none of them could be
authentically located. The Republic
reporter , however , finally found
George L Yaplo , ox-congressmnn nnd mem
ber of the committee from Michigan , who ,
nftcr a Rood deal of urging , tnado the follow
ing statement ; "Notwithstanding the fat
that numerous Important papers all over the
country have announced to the contrary , . !
think I can safely say without violation of
cnnlldcnco thnt not only the
president's mcssaeo , but also the entire -
tire Mills bill also will bo
unciuallflcdly endorsed by the committee. "
It was 1 o'clock this morning when
Gorman , In the suh-commlttco on plat
form , addressed the committee relating
to the tariff plank , advocating substantially
the reiteration of a reverse reduction clause
on the platform of 1831 , nnd favoring reduc
tion by Internal revenue tuxntion.
Wntterson replied , appealing o for explicit
enunciation of the party's position on the
tariff , upon which It could go to the polls free
from the stigma of an attempt to straddle
this great Issue which , no said , had been
Justly charged to the platform of 1S84. On
motion of Senator Gorman , without action
the sub-committee , at 2 a. m. adjourned to
8 iilO o'clock.
The committee on resolutions resumed Its
session at 10 o'clock this morning. Tno sub
committee appointed to draft a platform on-
torcd soon afterwards nnd roportou their in
ability to ntjrcc , the point at issue being the
question of realllrmlng the tariff plank in the
platform of 1SS4. Gorman opposed realllrmn-
tlon of the tariff plunk of 18S4 nnd a general
endorsement of the policy of reduction as In
dicated In the president's tariff message.
Wntterson opposed any allusion to the plat
form which li * deemed equivocal and indi
rect. Gorman addressed the committee
for an hour. Whllo ho considered
the prospects of democratic success
in Now York much better than- they were
four years ago ho regarded Indiana , Now
Jersey nnd Connecticut as doubtful , nnd he
would have no hope of his party carrying
them upon a tai iff for revenue only platform.
He argued that the platform of 1SS4 was the
one upon which Mr. Cleveland was elected ,
that ho accepted the nomination and lias
boon content to administer the executive
ofllco In accordance with its principles.
Wattcrson responded in n long address ,
"The platform of four years ago , " ho said ,
was a straddle mid so accepted by the com
mittee on resolutions in the convention oi
1834. The Issue of thut election , " Haiti
Wattcrson , "did not prove the wisdom of an
equivocal policy. It wiisnotn policy pleas
ing to our peculiar manhood. It was a
Etraddlo nnd thcro was nn odium
attached to it from which it
could not bo freed. The campaign ,
fortunately for the democratic party by the
nomination of Mr. LSlaine , had become onool
personalities nnd Mr. Cleveland was elected.
The result did not prove the strength of the
platform nnd did not Justify the faith of the
advocates of a straddling policy. It would , "
ho thought , "bo wise to take an aggressive
stand , as the democratic party had been irre
vocably committed to the policy of horizontal
reduction by Cleveland's last message nnd bj
" the utterances of amnjorityof tlio democratic
party in the house of representatives. Out
position is clearly announced ; it is known tn
our opponents end the people. " He believed ,
moreover , that tlio bold , manly tone of Cleve
land's message had a very happy effect.
The utmost candor of expression charac
terized the remarks of both Wattorson and
Gorman , nnd perfect , gootl feeling was main
tained throughout. But It wns soon evident
that their relative positions on the points at
issue would bo maintained , nnd it became
quito clear that a majority of the committee
jiad been impressed with Gorman's candid
statement of the political expediency in
At noon general debate was begun uix > r
the question ot reulllrmlng the platform ol
3SS4 , ton minutes to bo allowed each state ;
and a vote to bo had at 1:80. : The debate ,
however , was prolonged until three o'clock.
'Jly n vote of i5 ! to 2J the committed nerml
to Senator Gorman's proposition to endorse
nnd reitcrato the tariff platform of Ib84. It is
understood there will bo no serious division
upon the other planks in the platform , The
committee rensbcmbled to-night at 7 o'clock
for consideration of the platform in sections ,
As tlio evening session of the committee 01 :
resolutions was about to bo begun , it was
Stated there was to bo an additional para
craph added to the roafllnnation of the Ib3l
JLariff plank , explaining more fully its scope
nnd relieving it of that ambiguity whicl
( Wattorson hud characterised ns a straddle
nnd making it conform to the principles a :
fft fcnunciatcd in the president's message. Gor

They Consider To-day's Adjournment
iVictory. .
Sr. Lomi , Juno 0. Governor Gray' . *
friends have displayed some of the spirit ol
the Grant 800 in 1SSO nnd have beer
fighting with great persistence. The }
have been doing everything , hoping to create
n change in sentiment botoro the ballollnp
for vice president occurs. It is well known
that the matter has been forced
to nn Issue. This afternoon Gray'f
name would not have been presented ,
The efforts of the Indlnnlnn.i to make It ap
pear that an adjournment wiw a Gray vlctori
were only partly sucressful , but tbojnt ; once
proceeded to make the most of it. Promptly
sending thnlr men out through the hotels ,
they claimed the unexpected delay of two
hours was a victory for the opiwsltion , ami
that the state would yet bo broken. They
renewed their visits to other delegations ,
and reported their now well worn argument'
of Carlisle or some other now candidate ,
They sent tholr workers nnd shoutcrs
through the streets hurrahing for Gray.
Sympathy was felt by the , Thurmnn'e
when It bccatno known that another meeting
of the Ohio delegation was called for this
evening. A number of the Ohio delegate ?
are still opposed to Thurman's nomination
and fears nro expressed they would try tt
revoke the action by which Ohio had agreed
to stand by the ex-senator. No such action
was taken and the innttcr ? was not brought
up nt nil , although In case Thurnm
should fall to receive the necessary two-thirds
on the llrst ballot , Ohio would probably be
one of the first states to lead a break to some
other candidate.
Ho ExplnliiB the Suh-Comiulttoo'i-
Platform Compromise.
ST. Louis , Juno 0. Hofcrrlng to the details -
tails of the platform to bo presented , Mr ,
Wattcrson said to-night : "Tho substance Is
this that wo renew our fidelity to demo
cratic principles and roafllrm the platform ol
1894 and endorse the last annual message ol
the president and declare It a correct Inter
pretation of the platform , and ap
rove the efforts of our demo
cratic representatives in congress to secure -
cure reduced taxation. In a separate
resolution to bo offered to the convention to
morrow wo commend the Mills bill , urging
its passage at an early day. My ideas origin
ally were opposed to any recurrence to the
platform of 1884 , and when that course was
suggested opposed it , because It had been
subjected to a double construction. Never
theless the situation Is this , that the platform
of 1834 , when coupled with the endorsement
of President Cleveland's message as the true
interpretation , nnd a commendation of the
Mills bill , moots my most hearty approval. "
Gossip About State Delegates and
Mr. Wattorson said this morning thai
everything in the platform was agreed
to except the preamble. Wattorson
wishes to endorse the president's messuage
and the platform of 1SS1. Ho says ho thinks
the platform will bo ready this afternoon ,
but expects a light on it in the convention.
When Missouri was called continued cries
for Vest were heard from the members ol
the convention. Ho did not respond. There
were cries for Fellows when New York was
reached but ho shook his liciul no.
The adjournment was carried at the re
quest of the Indiana delegation thnt it might
confer with Governor Gray by telegraph.
Governor Gray's friends in the delegation snj
his name will probably bo withdrawn.
Mr.VnttcrbOn received the following tele
gram to-day from Congressman W. O. Brook-
enrldgc : "Failure to endorse the Mill ; bill
may defeat it. "
Twenty hours Is the tlmo ittook to prepare
a tariff plank that could bo agreed upon foi
the campaign of 1833. The result is a roaftlr-
mation of the plank of 1831 as suggested b.\
Senator Gorman , but amended and umplittcc
so as to suit Henry Wattorson.

ing Editor of TUB Biu : To settle a dispute
I will ask you to answer this question : Jn
playing ball there is n base-runnor holding
first base and a fair ball is batted to the In
field and thrown to lirst base , putting the
batter out. The ball was then thrown to
second base and the runner wns doclurd
out. Jlo wns not touched with the ball. Tlio
question Is , did lie not huvo u right tn rot urn
lollrst base after the batter was declared
out !
If you will bo kind enough to answer this
through TIIK BKK or to mo , you will grenly
oblico yours very truly , J. B. Four.
The base-runner is not out under the cir
cumstances mentioned. Ho had a perfect
right to return to lirbt base , provided ho
could got thcro without being put out by ono
of the opposing trum. But in an instance of
this kind ho must bo toucftuil with the bull ,
unless the batsman mentioned had liU a lly
which was caught , in which uaso the baso-
runner could bo dot-lured out without bomg
touched with tlio ball providing it was
thrown to Ural huso.

atop and take up dead bodies , " said Mr. By-
mini , nn Indiana democratic member of the
house1 , who Is ono of Governor Gray's ' most
ardent advocates , in discussing to-night the
'vico presidential situation at St. Louis. "I
do not think Gray will bo nominated , " ho
continued , "and I may add that I do not be
lieve Judge Thurmnn will bo nominated.
When the convention ndjourncd to-day it was
n victory for the nntl-Tliurman men. All of
the friends of Governor Gray in the conven
tion nro opposed to Thurmnn nnd there are
ninny who nro classed ns the friends of
Thurmnn who will gladly drop him and go to
anew man whenever ho is suggested. Gray's
know-nothing record scared the party at
largo , nud then the interference ! on the part
of the administration sealed his dofcat. "
"Then thcro will bo noino ether man
than Gray or Thui-nmn brought
Into the convention to-morrow for
the vice presidency 1" I Inquired.
"Yes , " replied the hooslor , " 1 think Thur-
nlan's defeat will bo worlced in the caucus of
the Gray men nt St. Louis to-night. The
Indiana democrats will not sleep much dur
ing the next twelve-hours. I do not oppose
Judge Thurmnn on personnl grounds and the
Indiana democrats nro not opposed to him
for nnythmg that ho has done , but ho is too
old. Ho Is but n tradition. Bo would glvo
no strength to the party anywhere. Thou
the Gray men Intend to rebuke those who
brought Thin-man out to defeat them nud
they also intend to teach the administration
and Its friends a lesson for their meddling
with Gray's canvass. "
"Who do you tliink will bo the now man
sprung upon the convention to-morrow ! "
"Probably William It. Morrison of Illinois.
Morrison Is an ardent ndvocnto of the nomi
nation of Grnynnd nntiirnllv Gray's following -
ing would go to him. General Stevoilson of
Illinois , has been mentioned and ho would bo
n strong man on the ticket. Ho is probably
a more brainy man than Morrison but he has
done nothing to give him fume or prestige
other than to dismiss by wholesale fourth-
class postmasters. Morrison has a national
character. "
Not a Boom Situation.

Tin : Bii.l : J. S. Clnrkson , who has just re
turned from another eastern trip , said that
during ills absence lie liiul inquired of repub
lican leaders nnd delegates tholr preferences.
He had learned among other things thut
Senator Hawley's name will bo presented
for the presidency from Connecticut and thnt
the Now Jersey delegation will present Wil-
limn Walter Phelps. "This intelligence , "
said Clnrkson , "I received in ono case from
the chairman of the delegation nnd in the
other from a lending delegate. The promt-
ncnt eastern delegates had many confer
ences together nnd hnvo discussed tlio
various mon proposed. The lead
ing men of the Now York delegation
have told me in the last day or two that the
conclusion reached was n general ono not to
pledge themselves to tiny one , but rnthor nn
agreement to keep unpledged and so como to
Chicago. When hero they will confer with
delegates from all quarters , and by seeking
the level of opinion 11 ml mm nominate the
strongest possible man for the polls. I think
this Is the view of nearly nil the eastern dole
gates. All reali/e that we need to go with
great caution , The party situation Is not n
'boom' situation. No candidate will bo
'br/omed' Into the nomination this yonr.
The man .selected will bo chosen nfler
thorough deliberation and chosen purely for
the party's ' sake. I believe It true that fiOO ,
and perhaps COO of the members of the con
vention will e-omo hero either uncommitted
or clso willing to leave any personal cholco
If they can bo shown n stronger candidate
for the party. The llrst ballot tables nro
mcro 'bluffs. ' " Clnrkson still has hopes for
Senator Allison.
