They are too far in tbe future and too doubtful of coming. I believe tbe Government of the United States, with ita 70,000,000 of peopla. with Its commercial enterprise and wonderful resources. Is great enough and strong enough to take tbe lead and map out a way -for the world to At least la tbe Interest of tbe debtor classes of this country, constituting by far tbe larger part- of our citizens, wboso Interests should surely be dearer to us than an tbe world besides without further delay w should declare our faith fn silver, restoring It to Its old position prior to Ita cunning and outrageous dethronement by the Republican party in 1873. e. w. Wilmas, ; na proceed to in coinage of both gold and siRer without dis criminating against either, adjusted by such safeguards of legislation aa will Insure the parity of tbe two metals. - . The A. P. A. was handled as follows t "It was decreed by God. and deeigned hy our fathers, that America should be the borne of civil and religious liberty. This is the great underlying princlpleln the liberties of a. people, and of free representative government. It has been not the least of tbe mis -lions of the Democratic party to zeal ously guard v rats tAoe.cs rs.rvii.BOE In the past, and It a ball continue In the future to raise ita voice against tba unholy and un- merican prejudice that would stir np a feeling of hatred, bitterness and animosity toward one religious sect a ' feeling that la wholly at war with fraternal charity. Christian sentiment, : and highest civilisation. Such a sentiment can never find a resting place In tbe bosom of Democracy, nor In th hearts of trua American citizens." , Following Governor Matthewss speech, a report waa -had from the Committee on Cre dentials, showing tbat tba "proper delegates bad been seated." Hon. Robert C. Bell, of Ft. Wayne, Chair man of th Committee; on Resolutions, pre sented tba platform as agreed upon. Special enthusiasm marking the Indorsement of the Governor and state administration, and the condemnation of un-American organizations, but tbe most sprited enthusiasm was evoked wbsa tbs section was reached censuring the Senators, who ware criticised as standing in the way of tariff reform. During tbe reading of tbls clause there were repeated calls to name tba Senators alluded to. which was unheeded by Bell until tbe Dol-e drowned the sound of his voice. A second time ha began reading nd again the cry went up. Finally a dele gate shouted tbe name of "Brire" in a com manding voice, and tbe name waa taken up and hurled forward and backward over tbe hall. Sventnally Bell motioned for silence, after wblch he slowly remarked: "Tbe finger of scorn will follow them along the pathway of Ufa without naming them." . THia STILLED TB TVMCLT. A second outburst of epplanse followed tb recommendation tbat United States Senators be elected by the people.. Tb resolutions were adopted without diasant. Little time was lost by th convention la looting a ticket. Hon, George F. Beta bard, of Spencer County, was named for Judge of the Supreme Court, First District, and was ac cepted by acclamation. Hon. Joseph 8. Dai ley, ot Wells Con nly .(FoUrtb District), w named to succeed himself on the bench, and he waa also accepted by acclamation, xtoth gentlemen briefly acknowledged tbe honor. Then half a dozen delegates claimed tbe at tention ot tbe Chairman for the distinction of nominating William R. Myers to succeed him self aa Secretary of State, and amid general acclaim this nomination was rushed through at railroad ipeed. Captain Myers was present, and be accepted the rac In a neat, telling lit tle speech. minstions for Auditor ot State were called for, and Hon. John W. Kern, ot Marion, named Joseph I. Fanning, present Deputy Auditor of State, and he was accepted by acclamation. . Tbe first approach to a contest came In tbe nomination tor Treasurer ot State. Morgan Chandler, of Hancock t Frank A. Mull, of Bush, and Jabn L. Gobet, of Montgomery, were named by their respective friends. Tbe nsme of Goben was the only one ot tb three which bad. previously been mentioned in connection with the office, but, as indicated last night, there were forces at work - to racyxKY mi SKLgcriog. . ... , Mr. Chandler ted front tb start on the bal lot, and long before completion: of the roll call he had more than a sufficient number of votes. Messrs. Goben and Mult thereupon withdrew their names, and the nomination was made Unanimous. ' - ' No opposition developed to the nomination of Hon. Francis Griffith, of Switzerland, for Attorney-General. ". It required a ballot to determine a choice for Clerk of tbe Supreme Court. The candi dates were Bdltor C. W. Wellman, of the Sul livan Times, and Elwood Avery, of Clinton, who but recently injected himself Into tbe race. The vote, as announced, gave Mr. Well- man 1.017 votes and Mr. Avery 720h. Tbe first named was then accepted by acclamation. Squally abort and decisive -was the ballot ing for Superintendent of Public Instruction The opposing candidates were C. W. Thomas, ot Harrison Connty, and J. H. Gardner, of Cass, and the ballot was even and Interesting. Tbe result showed Thomas 601 and Gardner 846. ' Mr. Thomas was accepted by acclama tion. Tb. delegates then began leaving tbe ball, without waiting tar the selection of a candidate tor State Geologist. Ell T. Jordan, ot Shelby, and George S. Harney, ot Mont gomery, were placed in nomination, and tba tellers announcea tnei vote woraan. i.uzz; nnnirr William A. Hamilton, of union Connty: J, L. Laughlin. of Bartholomew ; Alexander Fulton, of Wabah. and Felix 3. Thornton, of Clay, were placed In nomination for State Statistician, and the first ballot failed on choice, the result standing: Hamilton. iS; Lauablin, S09t Fulton, Slo, and Thornton 247. While this result was being tabulated Governor Matthews Introduced tbe members ot th National Colored Democratic League and short speeches were made by C. H. J Taylor, of Washington, and Milton J. Tuner, of St. Louis, the Inst named said to be the OS XLOQCXXT COLO EXP MAS In tbe world. A second ballot vas then or dered tor Statistician, which proved a walc-mwy for Fulton, Laugblln drooping out and Hamilton and Tboratoa receiving but fraction over 600 votes. Th ticket is id muted to be strong. All of the nominees are popular In their respective localities and all of tbem are generally known throuehout tba state. Captain William A Mvera. ot Madison County, who beads the ticket for Secretary of State, has twice been electedtothat0fr.ee. Before his entry in Stat oolitics he was elected to Congres In the facet ot a heavy Republican majority, and upon being renominated he cut down the majority in a gerrymandered district nearly 2 000 votes. Daring the war be rose to the rank of Captain In an malaria regiment. Jot, T.
