Judge Grcsham has at last boon heard from and has dellned in his own peculiar way his position In regard to the presidential nomination. Hon. H. S.

Thus the totogrum received from the Judge Is inter preted as moaning taut ho can not stand as a candidate on the St. Louis platform , slnco In his Inter vlow ho stated that ho did not ngroo with that party In nil Its declarations. The an- nouncornont that a telegram had boon received - coivod from the Judge caused considerable oxcltotnunt Into last evening , and when Its contents bocntno known It was generally accepted by the inoro conservative as clearly Indiritini ? that Judgj Grostvim dd not dcslro his nnmo to bo longer mentioned n this connection. C/onsidorab lo stress Is put upon his closing sentence : "My nnmo will not bo presented to the convention. " Tills is accepted M bolng the expression of his sin cere doslro in regard to the matter. There nro n row of the inoro onthuslastlo Graiham mon , however , who are still disposed to bo- llovo that the Judge will accept the Humilia tion If It bo londorod him , but thcuo gentlemen - mon appear to bo In a hopeless minority , nnd the Indications now are that this telegram will bo accepted as authoritative and dual , and that the GraMiam boom Is a thing of the past. _ r.m OD U'lm riuini TInH thu .Juclgci Dholillut tfi Acc' < * pt.

Gcnoral James B. Weaver of Iowa estab lished himself nt Iho Mlllard hotel yesterday morning and received the various people's party dclogalos who crowded eagerly into bis room. "Who is your cholco for president ! " General - oral Weaver was asked by a reprosontallvo of Tun Br.E. "Waller Q. Grcsham Is my first cholco and Weaver is mv sacond , " said Iho general , smiling. "If Gresham will accept I think wo nro all for him , nnd 1 presume wo will hear somolhing au'horitativo from him , or from some ono aulhorizod lo represent him , pretty soon. " "What do you think the platform will boi" ' ' "I think It'will bo the S't. Louis platform , which you have already published , with n plank added denouncing the force bill. In my opinion there will bo very little difference ot opinion on tbo platform mid It will bo u mai ler very quickly and very harmoniously dis posed of. " General Weaver smiled nl the suggestion that Senator Stewart had sent u messenger to Omaha with a plutforra upon which ho would accept the nomination for tlio presi dency , nnd said : "I don't think Senator Stowurt has done anything of the kind. lie is n very sensible man and would bo a good candidate , but ho would not expect the plat- lorm to bo molded lo sull Iho convenience ot nny nun.

When re quested to unbosom hlmsolf Mr. Terrell became evasive , saylnc : "I had n conversation with Judge Gros- hnm , but it was privalo nnd I would not bo Justified in repeating It. I can say , however , that when n commlttoo of our party wont to him ho cxuro-isoil himself ns heartily In sym- palhv with the movement , and when the platform was explained to him ho did not ob ject to its principles. Ho moreover said lhat the money aud corporate powers were a men ace lo ibo people and ho regarded this movement ns a protest against the existing ovtls. " "Dou you think. Mr. Terrell , that there will bo anyone nt this convention authorized to speak for Mr. Groshami" "Yos , I do , " ho answered , but when asked to stale who It would bo he evaded Iho ques tion. Mr. Terrell's manner was calculated to convoy the impression thai no believed Grcsham would consent lo iho use of his nnmo. A Michigan delocnto-at-lnrgo declared In favor of n western man. Ho thought his delegation fell kindly toward Gresham , but that a candidate from a state nearer the Oc cident would bo inoro acceptable.

Ninrt ol thn rassin : ) nt llio Silver Hill In the SrnutoVcll Itcculvml. The national convention of the people's oarty will convene und'jr Inspiring circum stances. The passage of the free silver bill by the United States sonnto yesterday Is ac cepted by the delegates to the' notional con vention as n vindication ot their organiza tion's demand for n greater circulating medium. The leaders all ugrco that nothing could have been done at this tlmo that could have boon moro propitious for the people's party hopes. The national central commlttoo , composed of 150 prominent members of the people's party from nil sections of the union , was In session in this city when the onnto took the llual vote on the passage of the silver bill. Thirty seconds after the result was an nounced by the chafrman of the sonata , 1.590 miles away , the announcement of the pss- sago of the bill was reported to this con for- once by n ropresontutlvo of Tun Br.c. The effect was electrical. Nearly every member Jumped to his toot nnd three cboora were given for the United States senate , and It was brawny Ben Torrell ot Texas who shouted : "Now lot the people's representa tives , the lower house of congress , do the people's bidding and hkowlso pass this bill. " There Is a fooling hero that the house of representatives will hardly dare adjourn without giving this measure Its considera tion. Telegrams of congratulation have Hashed from this city to Washington con gratulating Sonator.i Kyle und Poffor and all other people's party legislators for the llrst ray of hone that comes In the passage of a free coluaga bill by tuo United States senate. Urcilmm If llo Wants It. The presidential quostion'ls naturally becoming - coming the engrossing topic in this great gathering and the feeling of uncertainty ns to the outcome is becoming ono of positive anxiety. The great popularity of Judge Walter Q. Gresham maUoj his nomination practically certain In the event of his will ingness to accept , and so ttrong Is Gros- htim's popularity becoming tnat many of the moro conservative leaders are fearful that the convention may bo lea into the erlous error of bestow ing the nomination upon a man who may subsequently reject it. Ignatius Donnelly expressed the sentiment of n strong element when ho said : "Wo must not go too fast tvlth this Gresham movement , but must await some expression from Judge Gresham hlmsolf before wo nominate him. If ho is willing to accept and make tbo light on our plutlorm I think there ! > hut one opinion as to the desirability of his nomination , but until it is known that he will accept pru dence ( lomaticls tnat tbo nomination should not be tendered a man who Is nutsldo our pirty. If it should bo done and Gresham should then decline it would bring our party into rldiculo throughout the nation. " Will ID Nothing Kimli. This caution of Donnelly , which finds an oono from nearly Hll the people's party leaders , has had the effect of sllgntly checkIng - Ing the Gresham movement. It U tacitly agreed on all sides that Grcshum's name Is not to bo mentioned in the convention unless authoritative assurance is received thut ho stands prepared to accept the nomination. So General Weaver , Chairman Tuuboneok , Ben Terrell and other leaders of the party have Joined together In taking stops to so- euro a positive Intimation of his position from Judge Gresham. If this in timation is a favorable ono General Weaver hlmsolf will present Grosham's name to the convention In a ringing speech und the nomination of the distinguished jurist will bo made by acclamation. If , how ever , Gresham should decline to bo con sidered n candidate , tbo Indications tonight nro that General \Vcavor will bo tbo presi dential nominee. While bo expresses his first choice to bo Grosbam , General Weaver does not deny that ho stunus prepared to make the cam paign In case ho Is selected as the party's btuntiard bearer , und at this tlmo Weaver Is certainly , next to Gresham , the choice of the convention. Hon. Bon Terrell of Texas Is prominently mentioned tonight In connection with the vlco presidency. ruii : biL.viit on nn : . Novniln Will On It Mono If Nut Hntisllcil with llio roole' | I'latlorin. The first silver leaguer to put In an ap pearance was G. S. Nixon of Wlnnomuccn , Nov..who engaged quarters for twelve dele- galas at the Mlllard.

Politically ho U a re publican , being a member of tuo state com- mitluo and chairman of tbo county com mlttoo. In answer to reportoriul queries ha said : "Tie mimbotshlp of the silver clubs of Nevada Is made up of all pantos und wo uro for a free silver candidate on a free silver platform without regard to party.

Colonel Leo Crandall of Washington , D. C. , editor of the National View , arrived with his family yesterday and Is at the Mll lard. The colonel is a member of the na tional committee nnd n delegate from the District of Columbia. H < j is iilso secretary of thu Ainoricun Bimetallic league recently organised mid a delegate to the National Mining congress nt Ilolcnn. Ho has been connected with the greenback or the people's ' party movement slnco 18TO. "Tho membership of our league Is scat tered nil over the .country , " said Coloni-l Crandall to n reporter , "and It Is growing rapidly. It Is made up o ! men of all politi cal faiths. The league Is nonpartisan , but Its moirboM will naturally support the can didates who stund for free and unlimited coinage of silver. The league ns nn organi sation will not cotnc before the convention , but it passed a resolution at its recent moot ing asking the pcoplo's party tonamon ticket and make a platform acceptable to our members. Individual members will be hereto to urge tbat , and among them will bo Gau- cral A. J. Warner' of Ohio who , though n democrat , Is president of the league. "Wo will not urpo any particular candi date. My Idea is ( hat the delegates from the iioithwestern 'nnd the 1'aclllo states should bo allowed to narna the candidate for president , and that'tlu southern states should bo permitted to fl.l the second place. Gresham would bo satisfactory to the silver men , but before ho U nominated It must bo known that bo will nccopt nnd stand on n free silver nlatforiri. With proper candi dates on the right platform the people's partv will carry Georgia , North and South Carolina and Alabama. Wo also have n good lighting chance In Texas , and western silver men nro conlldont we can carry Colorado , Nevada , Idaho , Montana nnd the two Dakotns. Of course this convention Is already committed lo'givo us a silver plank that will concede nil the Icacuo asks. " llcnihiimrtors Opoiiod. M. H. Slater , the npostlo of free coinage , arrived duiiug the afternoon , and , fraterniz ing with G. S. Nixon ot Nevada , opened Sil ver league headquarters lu room 110 at the Mlllard. Mr. Slater Is the chairman of the Colorado Silver loapuo nnd preached the gospel of free colaajo to tbo republican platform commlttoo at ' Minneapolis and the democratic commltto'a'at Chicago. lie came to Omaha from Chlcairo nnd feels that bo has finally found son6 ono of his own faith. "At ttio last rockonttig the Colorado Silver league had eighty cJa-clnbs , with a membership - ship of19,000 , " ho sala to n reporter. "Tho Denver club , alone , bos 11,000 members.

" , "Wo consider Gresham sound bn the silver question , nnd ho would be entirely satisfac tory. 1 think , however , that Senator John T. Morgan of Alabama would bo even a bettor candldato. I am not as enthusiastic ai Bomo who think the third party candidate can bo oloctcd. The most wo can hope to do Is to throw the election Into the democratic house. Morgan has a bettor record as u dem ocrat than Cleveland and ho would stand some chance of boliitr chosou. A majority of the representatives from twenty-seven states are silver men and It ouly takes tweaty-throo states to elect. " WHAT AN KOITOK THINKS. Mr. Dulibyn Talks nf the Pint form Anione tlio Press ( imiK. Editor William R. Dobbyn of the Pro gressive Ace of Minneapolis , ono of the delo- gutos-at-lrtrgo from Minnesota , arrived yesterday - torday morning. Ho stated that Minnesota and the entire norttuveu was solid for Gresham , with Weaver as second choice in case the Indiana man could not be nro vailed upon to nccopt. Ho thought It certain that a southerner would be selected for second place , but ho had no idea who bo would bo , although ho had heard Davis of Texas prom inently mentioned. Ho was in favor of drafting a now plat form , embracing the main features of the St. LouU production und certain , ether things. Ho said that the third party was Just start ing out , and would bo given Its most import- nut nond-olT hero at Omahn , and should therefore have a platform formulated for tbo occasion , and not ba content with any hand- mo-downs. As to the prohibition and equal suffrage contingent , ho said that while the north was In favor of equal suffrage , It was very unpopular In tbo south. Ho thought the convention would probably try to concil iate tno southerners by cropping that plauk , but ho hoped not. To Ilegtilnto the Hnluon , He did not believe there would bo any thing said about prohibition , but bellovcd thatn plank would bo Inserted regarding the nationalization of the liquor trafllc. "That , " said Mr Dobbyn , "will bo a voto- goiter Instead of u voto-loser. It removes the revenue tax , destroys the political power of the saloon , prevents the adulteration of liquors and would not offend thu personal liberty advocates' . It woula place the tralllo lu the hands of the government at cost und no outbldors could compete with it. It Is really n tompoiMuco mov ; , for thu saloon power must ba destroyed before wo can have prohibition. It is merely preparing the way for the nrohibltionists , nnd they should glvo us tliuiu support. The position ot the prohibitionists .011 cotnairo will throw nt least 100,003 of their people to our ranks without a doubt. "I have been much Interested in reading of the energy displuvea by thoOraubn peopla In preparing for1 this convention. I bavo been surprised sired coining hero to see the enterprise of the cttkciis and tlio grand de velopment of the cltjr.iund have been partic ularly struck with the cordiality nnd good fooling expressed. Your city will see the results ot It long , after tbo convention hat become history. " Among the .S'owxjmper Worlicrn. R. W.

In l his rospcot Mr. Btorra differed from Mr , Deb u vn of Minnesota , who suld that thu people of his Mate did not lay as much stress ou that part of the platform ai they did on the rostof ll , and Judge Grusbam's disapproval of It would not render him any the low satisfactory to them.

The name of Cary will bring up warm memories of llio famous campaign of Ihtt ) . "Old Sam" Cary of Ohio , n relntlvo of thi ! Knqulrer's representative , was candi date for vlco president on the grounbank ticket with Peter Cooper , nnd that year sowed seeds In Iowa which two years Inter resulted in the election of U'oivor nnd Gillette - lotto , two avowed grconbaekors , to congress from the Sixth mid Seventh districts , re spectively.

Women are to play no inconsequential part in the nomination of n man who will stund squarely on tbo platform which will bo pro mulgntod next Monday by the representa tives of the people's party nnd among the lights on the female side of the house Mrs Anna L. Dlggs shines brightest. For ten years she has been acti\o in the work of re form , first In the ranks of the Women's Christian Temperance union , now lecturer , writer nnd enthusiast In favor of the prin ciples of the farmers alliance. Mrs. Dlggs is n potlto brunette with snap ping uluck eyes , nervous in movement , sug gesting n follower of Dols.irlu rather than nn admirer of Polk , the Into president of the national iiillanco. A typical rolormer In every look and gesture and a talker of moro than ordinary ability. Her ntro it would bo hard to say , possibly 35 , but In in Minor and activity sbo suggests the girl of ' . ' 0. Ills only when you talk with her that you nro Impressed with the thought that n girl of L'O could In no wlso converse so brilliantly upon u multiplicity of subjects , from govern mental paternalism and favoritism to the subtrensury scheme nnd Its promise of solv ing grout financial problems. Mrs. Dlggs shows In htr face that there has been u great deal of "sturm and drang" In her life , as Carlyle puts it. She has gone through several stirring stnto campaigns In Kansas , she has seen her good Iricnd , the late Sam Wood , go down before tbo bullets of as sassins , she bus fought valiantly for woman sullrugc and is today ono of the brainiest women in the pcoplo's party , n writer of note , usslstnnt editor of the New Forum ut St. Louis , secretary of the National Citizens alliance and dolegnte-at-largo from the Dis trict of Columbia , mid chosen chairman of her delegation in recognition of woman's connection with the alliance. .Mrs. Dlggb' Sentiments. "I believe with Emerson , " said Mrs. Dlgzs as she leaned back in a big arm chair in ono of the parlors of the Millard yesterday , "that all now reforms have an element of tbo re ligious about them. Aud as I look over the faces of tbo men nnd women who are In the fore front of the people's movement , I cannot help but bellnvo that there Is something higher , something nobler actuating them than mere sordid , snlllah motives with which they bavo been charged by tno enemies nf the raovomont. There is something ideal In the sinking of sell among those men , some thing exceedingly noble in the absence of potty bickoririgs and quarrels. There is n profound lesson to to learned by the old par ties in tbls utter solf-ubnegntion nmons the leaders , who are fighting for measures , not men. " "Will yon attempt to pledge the party to woman's suffrngof" naked the reporter. "That matter wns settled ut St , Louis , " replied the intorvlowed. "Mrs. Loeso , Mrs. Wardall and ether Just us prominent woman sulttugUts , and myself arcuod all night before - fore tbo commlttoo on resolutions at St. Louis to pledge the party to " woman suffrage , but when tho" vote was taken wo were squarely beaten and then wo resolved to lot the larger and moro momentous question take prece dence. It Is thn Biuiio way with the prohibi tion question. While I am Just as firm an ad vocate of the prohibition idea as ever , I nm moro deeply Impressed with the greater re forms necessary lo bo carried to successful conclusion before woman sutlrage and prohi bition shall obtain , I am not fearful , how ever , as lo iho position tbo people's party will take ou those questions when the pres sure of poverty , thu pained consciousness of deprivation , are put aside as obstructions which stand In Iho palu of progress. Condition of thu I.iiborum. "Tho laborers who are In Iho pinch of dis comfort from conditions constantly growing harder have summed up Iho situation and dccluro that the thing called pollllcs has lode do with the caso. Tnoy demand readjust ment and to meet the growing , nay universal demand from ovary class und condition for a now order of things , iho people's party wns born nnd on July will name the man wbo Is to lead tbo party to viclory In the November battle of the ballots. "Tho men ot the farms nnd iho mon of the mills and mines hnvo Joined forces. Nothing can stand buforo It because the time has coino. The quickened race gonsclcnco will no longer bo at case while hunger and cold torment the millions. This now conscience Is ruvolllng against the doctrine of blessed- be-drud ory for the ether half. Blossad- bo-diudgory Is vicious. Drudgery has pro duced misshapen Imugcx , suJ catIcittiros , und hovels. Instead of lomplos lor Iho Indwelling - dwelling ransior the soul. The f armors and oihcr laborers are not asking much nt the first. They are conservative , patient , will ing that conditions shall ovolvo. Bui those first demands as to land , money nnd trans portation they will have ; mm following these such ether good things as shall bo soon men need wherewith to make them bettor men.

"Cyclone" Davis of Texas was to address a mass mooting at the convention hall last night , but the ulTalr foil through bacauso the local committee was nol notified.
