THE OMAHA DAILY BEB : FRIDAY , .TUNE 22. 188a
clnrcd In the opening of his speech that
Pennsylvania did not wint Grover
Cleveland In the will to house a
declaration which was met with
laughter. Ho proceeded to vouch
tor the republicans of Pennsylvania nnd ho
boasted of the largo majorities thnt stnto
Imd given to Hayes , Garllold nnd JJlaino.
As the speaker uttered this last name the
enthusiasm of the convention again found
Vent in cheers , shouts and uproar.
The campaign , continued General Hast
ings , found the enemy intrenched in tlio sent
of power with the prestige of power , with
thrt Influence of the solid south nnd with the
Increasing democratic nppctito for oftico to
Rive It encouragement , though the country
was tired of sham , double dealing and medi
ocrity. Ho whom ho was about to nominate
needed no Introduction. His character , his
manhood nnd his illustrious achievements
were part of tlio country's history. Ho wns
n nmn whoso name wns a tower of strength.
Ho wns a man who had never bcun defeated
for tiny ofllco for which he hnd been nomin
ated. [ Applause. ] Ho would receive the
support of every innn who believed thnt ex
perience In statcninnship was a pro-rcmiislto
to high public preferment , ami that it was
not n disqualification to have actively and
honorably mingled in n generation of events
more vital to liberty and humanity than was
ever crowded into an equal period of history.
General Hastlng's speech wns admirably
delivered nnd listened to with marked niton-
w'hcn ho had concluded , Governor Forakcr
of Ohio wns presented by the Ohio delegation
to second Senator Sherman's nomination.
As Governor Fornker advanced up ono nlslo
to the platform two of tlio scrgennts-nt-nrms
came up ttio other carrying enormous lloral
emblem surmounted by a llornl shield. Upon
the fnco of this emblem in letters formed by
roses on a field of white , wore Forakcr's now
famous words : "No battle Hugs surrendered
while I mil governor. " Considerable signific
ance appeared to bo attached to this Incident
by the convention , nnd ns the governor and
the floral tribute got on the stage together
there wns a thunder of npplnuso.
Governor Fornker spoke us follows :
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Con
vention : Ohio is sometimes like Now York.
She occasionally comes to a national repub
lican convention divided ns to her choice for
the presidency , and sometimes she comes
united. She has so como now. Her forty-
nix dolcgntcs nro hero to speak ns one man
Jnpplnuso ] and it Is at their bidding , on their
behalf , nnd In their name that 1 tnko this
platform to second the nomination that lias
Just been made. Not so much , however , be
cause John Sherman Is n citircn of our state.
Knowing him ns wo do , wo should support
him with the sumo unanimity , the same zeal
nnd with the same determination and integ
rity of purpose , no matter from what
section ho might bo [ loud iipplause ] . 1'or
wo know und pledge for him that which you ,
gentlemen of Now York nnd gentlemen of
all the other states , must recognize and con
cede that ho is not FO much n citizen of any
one state us a citizen , in the highest scnso of
the word , of nil the states of tills union. His
name and fame fills the whole land , and
brightens every page of American history
that has been written since ho entered public
life. Nominate him nnd you lined not waste
any tlma or biographical sketches [ Cries of
"That's so"J. When you recall what has
been said from this platform to-day you can
appreciate the value of that advantage
[ laughter and applause ] . Ho is the imuie-
diato friend and acquaintance of all
the masses nnd conditions of our
people , high and low , rich nnd poor , black
nnd white , native and foreign. As it was
written in our platform , as it was rend from
that desk to-day , nil alike know nnd honor
him , because nil alike have n common part
and a common claim in his illustrious
achievements. [ Applause. ]
But no more do they honor him for his
distinguished services to his country
than as It wns well said by tlio gentleman
from Pennsylvania because of the exalted
character und purity of his private life. Ho
is , In the highest sense of the word , a
typical representative of American life ,
American citizenship and American states
manship at the same timo. [ Cheers nnd
applause. ] General Hastings well said that
ho should not repeat his record to you from
this platform. If ho were to de
tain you until ho could do so
wo would uot gut n standard-bearer until the
next term of the presidency commenced. It
covers all there is uf republicanism.
fApplnuso.l It commenced before the party
commenced [ applause ] and it has gone con
tinually on Irani that moment until this.
There is not a question , nnd has not been in
thirty years , affecting the people , internally
or externally , that John Sherman has not
dealt with , nnd how t In such n way us to
command the unbounded confidence , not
' only of the business interests' but of 'every
other kind of Interests In the United States.
[ .Applause. ] I have not hoard of any breezes
signs for his nomination us was the
cnso with another gentleman , [ laughter , ]
but I have heard , as you have heard , a Mace
donian call coming up from every section of
.llio United States , | chroro.j Hut
Uohn Shormnn is something more than
u good citizen and great statesman , something
more in the sense that wo wunr , to have
something more in the candidate whom wo
nominate to-day. We will bo a little partlci.
lar in this matter. Ho wi 1 not only cnrryi
to victory , but ho will give tlio country the
benefit of that victory , not In nny narrower
bigoted sense , not certainly by a resoiVto
such pusilanimous methods us those known
under thu name or guise of "offensive parti-
imnship" [ Laughter and applause ] , not tnther
by a cowardly ussohsinntiou of individual
character [ cries of "good" and applause ] , t Ho
method that seems so dear to our ovcrright-
oous mugwump friends , but lie will do it in n
manly und courageous way. Ho will admin
ister our public affairs by republican agen
cies according to republican principles. Ho
will fulfill the pledge with which wo com
menced our platform , namely , that the con-
btltutlou and laws of this country shall bo
enforced every where throughout our borders.
A voice Even in South Carolina.
Mr. Foraker Yes oven in South Carolina.
[ Great appluusoj. What is tlio use of talk-
fug about reducing the surplus revenue unless
you first settle it that the people have
reached the conclusion they shall bo nllowed
to express the conclusions they have reached
Yes. John Sherman Is a republican who will
ROO to it that American citizens nro protected
in the enjoyment niid exercise of their rights
of citizenship wheresoever the flag may float.
fApphiuso ] , I want n republican this tune.
i want ono of the kind of republicans wo Imd
on this platform last night. I want n man
who Is not only republican from the top of
Ids head to the solos of his foot , but who has
been ono all his life. I don't mean to Insinu
ate anybody , but I do want to impress upon
ygu that John Shcrumn is nil that. Ho has
over been ready , no matter how much per
sonal disappointment might bo in
volved , to support the platform
and nominee of the convention.
lie never sulks ; ho always Is in line and
ready far duty. Yes , ho Is always on duty.
A natural born leader , he belongs to a family
nf leaders. [ Cheers. ] Ho is u brotUur ef
that grand old hero nnd leader so dear to the
heart of ovory'man who wore the blue , who
once uj lit the Jell Davis wing of the demo
cratic party wldo open when he marched In
triumph from Atlanta to the sea. [ Ap
plause. ) Put your banner Into the hands of
John Sherman and lot him do a similar Job
lor you now. Ho will uphold and enforce the
V.'lsc liiiu patriotic policy of a protective turin .
His aim and ambition , ) > ollcy nnd affections ,
y' ' you please , will lie national. They tnko in
outh Carolina , and will mnke it a decent
jilaco oven for republicans to live in. Yes ,
under the benevolent guidance of his
ndiniulstration the whole south will bo
Kivou an opportunity to develop her
) ' .sources anil build up her Indus
trial pursuits , nnd under t > uch provisions
m those proposed by the lllair bill to educate
1'tjr children [ Cheers ] until they have been
brought abreast in the march of progress , in
the development of wealth and power , 'vith
tholr slater states in the union. And when
ml are abreast there will be no rivalries t > uch
ns have existed hcrotoforo , but under the
hlexstugs of a common prosperity all this
ivic < cod spirit of Ecctionaliam that the preheat
administration has revived will be over
thrown and the couth bound to the north nnd
ovary other section of the country in the
bnndi ot prosperity , which nro ever stronger
limn any that can bo forged by constitutions ! '
provisions or legislative enactments , all wil
bubtartcd with us on that march to a destlnj
that Is greater and grander than uny language
can describe [ Applause ] ,
If , therefore , high personal character ,
long tried and capable statesmanship , unful
icrnif and unswerving devotion to the prlu
of republicanism , as you have an
nounccd them hero , coupled with a guarantee
of success at the polls in November , to bo
folloiYoa by such magnificent rules ns I have
indicated , ore commendations to your favor
then nominate John Sherman , uot of Ohio
1 ut o ( the United States. Ho will bo pop-
Mar everywhere with tbo people , oxcdpt
uly la Jiofland , Quo reason La ucu't bo
is that the combination that
wns made over nt St. Louis wns put on a
free trade platform to march under the ban
ner of thnt same old bandana wo knew so
well In war times , when It meant only con-
perhend loynlty nnd which now means only
British free trade. Hut llio day the old ban-
drum was nominated the people of this coun-
Iry foresaw tlio nomination by you of John
Slicrmnn , who represents the flag enthu
siastically beloved by the loyal people of this
country , nnd every state felt thnt it should
jo our banner In the approaching campaign
.0 offset the old bandana.
At the conclusion of Fornker's speech the
greatest demonstration of the day took place ,
i'ho delegates nnd audience rose to their feet
nnd cheered wildly. Seine ono In the nudt-
cnco started to sing "Marching Through
.icorgin , " nnd the delegates nnd audience
olncd in. The demonstration continued for
ivo minutes. While old Fred Douglass was
getting on the platform n i > crfect bedlnm en
sued. Flvo minutes later the cheering was
rolng on unabated. The song of "Marching
Through Georgia" wns again renewed.
The sccno following Fornker's nomination
if Sherman has only been equalled in the
listory of national conventions probably by
ha outburst following the nomination of
Cleveland by Daniel Dougherty ntSt. Louis ,
n ona respect it certainly surpassed thnt , for
t came totally unexpected. Forakor's ' con-
: luslon wns somewhat abrupt nnd tlio cheers
lint followed wore front his friends nnd in
.he nnturo of a personal compliment. Then
ho convention realized In ono minute , nppar-
inrently , ns it never realized before , whnt a
; rcat hold Sherman hnd on tlio convention
md upon the republican party and the
country. Such a tremendous shout went up
hat the banners In thu dome trembled nnd it
seemed ns though the galleries would full
under the wild muss of yelling nnd nlmost
maniacal spectators. This unexampled out
burst continued , the demonstration , starting
so suddenly and unexpectedly , rendering the
whole doubly n marvel even to those who
participated most enthusiastically.
The governor waited In some embarrass
ment , until tbo uproar subsided. Ho cvi-
luntly had not anticipated the Incident. Ho
.hen proceeded to second the nomination of
Senator Sherman.
Hon. John M. Langston ot Virginia then
addressed the convention as follows :
1 am related to a very large factor in the
) opnlation of our country , so largely bcno-
iitted In every word nnd every deed that
distinguishes the history nnd the character
of John Sherman that I may not on this oc
casion pass without bringing testimony of
.hut great past before you to-day. 1 have
tot only the honor of living in
.ho Old Dominion nnd representing in
: iart on the floor of the convention
.ho people of the old commonwealth that
used to bo the mother of presidents and the
mother of statesmen , but lu that stain , situ-
ited as I am , I have the honor of represent
ing the men , women , boys nnd girls that the
republican party turned from things to men
und American citizens. John Sherman in
the house of representatives was tlio man
who was engaged In laboring ns a legislator
, n our behalf. When the name of
Sherman is pronounced in convention
with the presidency. I shall need to discharge
my duty to second that proposition.
Gentlemen have told you how great ho is ,
md what a patriot and what a statesman ;
low loaded ho is to his arms , across his _
shoulders nnd below , with the brok
en shackles of American slaves , nnd
with fruits of nil his oilier
iminlyg deeds r. 7COOOOi ) of negroes
to-day in this country ask you to nominate
John Sherman to the presidency of the
United States. All the poor men in tlio
south , so utterly abandoned to ignorance and
poverty and degradation the substratum of
society , beneath the negro in tlio days of
slavery look up to you and ask you to-day
to nominate John Shot-man , that ho
may aid now in their redemption
with the negro. If you give us
that paragon of American statesmen , John
Sherman , wo will unite Wisn and Ainhono in
Virginia. We will carry thnt old common
wealth with you to victory , and us she leads
on , the confines of our freedom , further
south , marching to the music of "Hail Col
umbia , " on the day that shall mark your
election shall bo found no longer doubtful.
Tbo southern states , giving always it
may through force and fraud your
electoral votes to the democratic party ,
shall bond their knees nnd give their votes
with the republican states , casting their
votes for John Sherman. And now , in the
name of nil the citizens of my state , republi
cans and true in namor-l - the. loyal south ,
white and black , I second the nomination of
lhat grand citizen of our entire republic ,
John Sherman.

Charles Emory Smith Presents tlic
Nnmo of . - '
IMill.-ulclpliiu's aiayor.
CIIICAOO , Juno 21. When Pennsylvania
was called Charles Emory Smith took thu
platform and spoke as follows :
My words will bo few and , I trust , to the
point. Our state , the greatest of the repub
lican commonwealths , has n candidate fore
most among the eminent business rep
resentatives who have been the
architects of her republican great
ness and of her imperial grandeur.
Pennsylvania is chief in republicanism be
cause she is chief in the group of industrial
states. Pennsylvania nsks nothing which is
not equally for tlio glory of Maryland and
Indiana und Minnesota. Pennsylvania wants
no policy which is not equally suited to the
great farms of tlio northwest and to the min
eral wealth of the now south , whoso bound
less resources need a now development.
Pennsylvania believes her policy is right and
is liberal nnd progressive in its spirit , main
taining that in the bulwark of protection is
found the acme of American greatness and
independence. Under this banner and under
tlio prince of leaders In 1SSI [ great npplatiso
nnd cries of "Hlnlne , IJlnino" ] she gave more
than 80,000 majority. Among her own she
presents ono who is the peer ofnny leader
nnd invites your serious nnd deliberate
consideration to the wisdom of this choico.
Our candidate it ) the highest typo of the nest
republicanism and the best progress nnd
prosperity of Pennsylvania , und you will rec
ognize it when I speak thu name of Edwin II.
Filler. If you ask for his record , go back to
the days that tried men's souls , when the
gallant defenders of tiio republic from nil
tlio north nnd east marched through
Philadelphia on their way to uphold
the imperilled llngof ourconntry. Through
nil these intorvcning years its master spirit
has been Edwin II. Filler. Do you uslc of his
republican services ? Go back , my old and
cherished friend of Now Yorkmy republican
friend of Now Jersey , of Ohio and Indinna.ot
Delaware mid Maryland , through tlio
checkered story of your hard-
fought campaigns. An employer whenever
never had n difference with his employes ; n
republic-nil who never faltered in sunshine erIn
In storm ; a leader who would bo equally
available ns a candidate and sure as a prcsi
dent. On behalf of a portion of the delega
tion from Pennsylvania , I present to this con
vention the name of Edwin H. Filler.

Cmcino , Juno 21. The secretary con
tinued the roll call , nnd when Wisconsin wn1
reached Senator Spooner spoke as follows :
Gentlemen of thu Convention : Fully mind
ful of tlio disadvantage of the fact that Wis
cousin is lust rn the roll call of states I tun
to the fact that bar stalwart republicanism
has always placed her nt the head
of the column when lighting is on
Wisconsin has nnver failed you , ami
to-day , for the first tune in years
of unbroken fealty she invokes for ono of
her own beloved and trusted leaders your
thoughtful consideration. Those for whom
I speak deem this an hour for vviso councils
nnd deliberate Judgment in tlio interest of
the people and not for compliment to nnj
man ,
The rank and file of the republican party
demand for leaders those who have walkm'
on the mountain ranges In full viov
of the men who have kcp
their feet out from the swamps and
bogs of life , whoso careers are without am
bush for the enemy , who uro stroug in the
robust qualities of leadership. Wisconsii
sends you such a man. Wisconsin , with en
thusiautlo unanimity , have instructed their
delegation to muno to you as their choleo fo
first place one who by n long life o
conspicuous public service in divers
fields of effort has proven his right
to stand the peer of any man in stainless
character , in patriotic devotion to thu bust
interests of the country , in political sagacity
in unerring Judgment , in norolo courage-
many timed shown in the ruth and whirl o
battle and ia extraordinary executive ca
paclty. His name is nut unfamiliar to the
country. It is Jeremiah M. Husk
the honored governor of Wisconsin
When Uie cloud * which b&d been
o long gathering In our political sky , burst

After detailing the merits of Governor
Jusk ns n business man , member of con-
rress , stnto onlcial , nnd his prompt action in

hiucd : The comrade of labor from

ilmsolf.with n Just sense of property rights
ml never the nllyy or tool of monopolies , his

mlldlng of American industries ; of cnforc-
ng to the full extent of execntlvo power the

At the conclusion of Spooner's ' speech the

believe him sincere In his withdrawn ! . I
can readily understand how Hlulne , calling
o mind the unparallelled bitterness
of the last campaign , would shrink from.
indcrtaking another struggle. For the sake
of decency and national honor let us hope
ho nppro.iching contest will bu at least a
clean one , nnd that the clement of personal
ibuso will permanently bo eliminated. Still ,
n spite of everything , the convention may be
breed to unite on Hlainc , who is unquos-
.ionable . the second choice of nearly every re-
lublican. Fnclum preference is very strong
'or Judge Qrcshnm , whoso record is unini-
joachablo , and who , perhaps better than any
one else , would succeed in reconciling tlic
mugwumps. Of course Sherman's
strength is very great , but m the
ircsenco of such completed conditions
all prophecy is vain. I may say ,
lowover. I don't ' accept the dark
: iorso solution to the problem as the result
of a light between Cleveland and the repub-
ican candidate. I express eohfidcnco that
our side will win. I hold this opinion for
several reasons. In the first place I think
wo shall get back most of the mugwumps.
They loft the republican party because they
distrusted it. Now , on the same prindipul ,
if they are as honest as they profess to be ,
thov must como back to tne republican
party.
"Consider for example : the civil service ro-
rorm question about which the part.v in power
lias made such an uproar. What are the
facts } A bill was passcd-undnr the republi
can administration and I have reason to
know that during the last two years of Ar
thurs presidency tlio principles of civil ser
vice reform wcro carried out with the most
rigid precision in my own department. I
never knew the political opinions of any man
appointed to any position. Tlio examination
papers were our only criterion as to "tlijj" can
didate's litncsi Hut how has it been since.
Mr. Geoigo William Curtis admits Cleveland
lias replace ; ! ofllco holders as rapidly as could
be donu without interfering with good work
ings , but tills is contrary to the avowed prin
ciples of tno democrats. It is utter hypo
crisy and can not therefore bo accepted by
high-minded mugwumps.
"I anticipate republican success for
another reason ; for , while the democrats
have not absolutely committed themselves
to tlio doctrines of frco trade , they have
made such an advance in that dircetion ns to
awaken great uneasiness in the mir.ds of
business men interested in manufacturing.
Capitalists hesitate to embark in ventures
when they have reason to npnrehend that In
a few years free-trade legislation may ren
der their enterprises valueless. This pro
tection element is now very exten
sive in the south , and 1 hope it
may become strong enough to secure
for the negroes a chance to vote
and bavo their votes counted , and in
such cnso wo would take from the solid south
thirty-eight electoral votes which are ours by
rights and which wo never get. It is useless
to deny thu light will bo hard. Wo shall
have against us thu temperance people -u Hh
their prohibition Utopia. So it is that the re
publican part.v has to suffer for furnishing the.
United Status with its apostles of high muial
ity. How inucli bolter if they would only
content themselves with high license and i.so
the revenue in caring for tlio poor victims of
drunkenness. I was much interested in rend
ing a letter in to-day's London Times whcroin
tlio writer preaches a sermon on the failure
republicanism. Much what ho s.iys is trim.
Neither can I deny that our political method
is inucn exaggeration , sham und cunning.
Head English history and see if things are
better. The nrticlo ends up with a savage
tirade against protection. America lias cer
tainly no need to como to England for a
lesson on that subject. Wo nro fully capable
of managing our own affairs. It is easily
comprehended why England , having every-
tiling to sell and llttlo to buy , de
sires to have tlio market ) ! of the world
open to her , but wcro she in our place ,
the conditions being totally different , you
may bo sure she would do Just as wo nro
doing that is , look out sharply for herself. "
Tlio ex-secretary said much mpro that
must be kept secret. Ho spoke with' seine
rcburvu and much animation. It is evident
ho thoroughly boliuvcs in his party prin
ciples and in dun time will bo heartily in the
presidential canvass.

LONDON , Juno 21. A dispatch from St.
Paul do Loanda dated yesterday snys ; Sev
eral deserters from Stanley's expedition have
reached Gump Ynmbunga. They state that
after traversing Aruwumi Stanley strucli
into a rough , mountainous country ,
covered with dense forests , The natives ,
who were excited by reports spread by the
Arabs , disputed the passage of the oxpcdl
tioa and there was continuous lighting ,
Stanley was severely wounded by an arrow.
He was compelled several times to construct
camps in order to repel the attacks and
were obliged to UBO the reserve provisions
that were intended for Einln Hoy. The Sou
danese attached to the force had all died or
diMippearcd. The deserters intimate thnt the
caravan loat one-third of its men and say
many of these remaining wcro ill , including
the Europeans. Stanley was encamped when
the deserters loft. Ho was surrounded by
hoslilos and wns unable to send news to
Emin or directly to Yambunga. Major Har
tcllot lias returned to Ynmbunga where ho
wns awaiting the men that Mr. Ward was
collecting to form a powerful expedition logo
to tlio relief of Stanley. In the sickness nt

More interest was shown In Washington
lo-ilny over the platform adopted nt Chicago
than In nny other part of the proceedings of
the convention. Members of both houses of
congress stood about the bulletin boards in
cuRor expectation for the platform. Demo
crats nnd republicans nllko expected strong
language on the subject of the tiirlfT and they
were not. disappointed. The republicans from
the south arc more enthusiastic over the
tariff section of the platform than those from
any other section. If possible , the declara
tion thnt tlio party prefers the entire abolition
lition of the Internal revenue rather than a
reduction of the duties imposed on manufact
ures , nmlics thorn extremely happy. The re
publicans of Virginia and North Carolina are
coi'lhU'iit of success on this platform. They
say it is lust what the people of their states
have been demanding , und that with any
peed man at the head of the ticket they are
sure of success. The republicans from Ten
nessee also speak with great confidence of
the outlook on the tarilt plank In the plat
form.
To-night 1 called upon Judge Kelley , of
Philadelphia , the father of the house , and
asked him what ho thought of the platform.
Ho stated that he had only road and hastily
the plank relating to the tariff. In the
course of Judge Kol ley's comments ho said :
"I endorse that portion ot the platform that
relates to the revenues , most onthusinstlcnUv.
So far as Pennsylvania is concerned , wit * ' a
good nomination , such as Harrison , Allison ,
lircslmin or any other fair man , on that plat
form the republican party need not think of
less than 100,000 majority. I will stake my
reputation on that. The figures 100 , MM )
