St >RiNOiriEt .n, 111., April 27.—One of the largest Democratic conventions in the history of the state convened in this city to-day. Great interest centered in the presidential contest. The morning papers published a telegram from Senator Palmer expressing his desire to leave the whole question to the delegates of the convention and indicating that he would not be displeased to receive a positive indorse ment and instructions of the Illinois Democracy. The result of this mes sage was that when the convention met it found the Palmer men aggressive and confident and the Cleveland forces slightly discouraged, hut resolved to make a vigorous tight against instruc tions for the Illinois candidate. The convention mot at 3 o'clock Chairman Phelps of the state central committee introduced Congressman Williams as temporary chairman, who made a stirring speech. The patriotic work of tariff reform so plainly and so bravely outlined in 1888 by that living idol of Democracy Grover Cleveland, is still unfinished and will continue so until every bur den of unjust and unnecessary tnxu- tion shall have been removed from the shoulders of our people. He considered the present silver law as unsound and unwise though believing in the principle of bi-metalism. He favored the free coinage of both gold -and si) ver and at such a ratio as will insure the circulation of both metals at par with each other. In conclusion Mr Williams said: "Let us have harmony and victory, bearing aloft the banne of the people—the banner of Democru cy and tariff reform, until we shall plant it upon the summit of victory here in the Capitol of our state and th Capitol of our country." Altgeld was so manifestly in the lead for governor that his opponents were beginning to concede his nomination. The platform denounces the MeKin- ley tariff law, and the tariff planks of the Democratic platform of 1S.S-1 and 1888 arc reaflirmed. The financial plank declares for a gold and silver standard, establishment of currency that will be- convertible without loss to the holder, but fixing a ratio by an international monetary conference so that the parity may be maintained, and all mints thrown open to free coinage. insists upon either State Auditor Poe or Col. L. Conger being substituted for Hanna or Hohn. The chief contest for the head of the ticket is between S. M. Taylor B. I.. Wideman and W. E. Chester. The first named comes into the convention with the largest following. For elerk of the supreme court, Clerk Horton, who is running for a third term, has a' vigorous competitor in Capt. .Tosiah Allen, the one armed candidate. For supreme court judges. Judge Pear, a candidate for a second term, and ex -Congressman Thompson are in the lead. For the board of public works, the contest is between Hon. L. Lybarger, and ex-Senator J. Park Alexander of Summitt county. lllce County Kepunllcans. LYONS , Kan., April 37.—[Special.)— The Rice county Republican convention met in Butler's opera house ves- terduy. There was « very full delegn-r tion present. The convention was called to order by T. E. Marsh, chairman of the county central committee, and Hon. ,1. W, Lane of Little Eiver made permanent chairman, and II. L. Marshall of Chase secretary. After some ringing reports from com mittcrs, the following delegates were selected: To Kinsley—John L.

It is believed Smitli has a majority of the delegation, but they go uninstructed and will vote for the best interest of the party regardless of the interests of individuals. THE GRANT MONUMENT.

President Harrison in the presence of his cabinet, with the exception of Mr. Maine, whose absence was caused bv ill health, laid the granite block upon which is to be built a tomb worthy of the nation and the nation's hero. The ceremonies wore impressive and the weather favored them. The state department was represented. There was no marked martial display attending the ceremonies, save a sprinkling here and there of officers of the army and navy, and troops which accompanied tne president to the park. The ceremony was civil from every point of view. Among those present were: Gens.

KANSAS CITY, April 37.—The .Star's Jefferson City, Mo., special says: The hall of the house of representatives was crowded to suffocation this morn- ng with Missouri Republicans, who seem as full of the inspiration of politics as though Missouri had been a Republican i state ever since the war. Chauncey I. Filley arrived last night. Ho remained in his room at the hotel and held a reception. The great subject of gossip last night was the choice for governor. Filley took the bull by the horns and started out bucking Warner for the place. Filloy was out for harmony. It had been supposed he would be for Neidringhaus, who will accept the nomination if Warner does not want it. This move did not exactly suit Warner and his friends, for Warner is a candidate for delegate-at- large, and said so this morning. The convention was called to order at 10 o'clock this morning by Filley, who said that there was no eoutcst m the Republican party in the state and created applause by stating that there would be no contest from St. Louis. In proceeding, he eulogized the administration, which created some surprise, as he was an announced and acknowledged opponent of it. He said that the Republican who would not thoroughly endorse the present administration was not good enough a Republican for him. In conclusion, he said: "I have no candidate, gentlemen, but I do hope you will nominate Major Win. Warner for governor." This settled the nomination of Warner. Judge T. A. IJot8ford of Kansas City was chosen temporary chairman and Chas. S. Mowder temporary secretary The usual business committees were then appointed and the convention then took a recess until 3 o'clock.

' Attention atriot and prompt Colorado's Choice. DKNVHII, April 27.—The delegates-at- large for Colorado to the national convention, to be held in Minneapolis, will probably be Senator Edward (). Wolcott, and Henry M. Teller, Congressman llosea Townsend and lion. J. L. lirush of Greely. As to who should be the nominee of the Minneapolis convention there seemed to be no determined choice. "Any one favoring silver is our man," was the usual reply to this question. There is no doubt hut that that Colorado is solidly ugair.st, the i-enomination of President I lurrison, as in the canvass of the delegates this morning his name was not mentioned, the members of the convention declaring themselves for "a silver man first, and James U. Blaine second." ^ New Jersey UcputttU-.nn*. TUKSTUS, N. .7., April 27.—Taylor's opern house was hardly large enough hold the throng that filed in through its doors to-day on the oeenshm of the Republican state convention, which as railed to order shortly after noon bj' John Keen, Jr., of Elizabeth.

CLEVELAND, O,, April 27.— The spacious Music Hall was packed in every part at half past two this afternoon when the Republican state convention was called to order by Hon. Charles P, Griffin of Toledo, who had been designated as temporary chairman by the state committee. As on previous oeca sions the hall was elaborately decorated with the national colors and por traits of leading. Republicans. After the gathering had come to orderChair- man Griffin delivered an energetic address in which he prophesied victory for the party next November both in the national and state campaigns. After the speech a recess was taken The sessions of the convention will continue over to-morrow. 'Phe nominations to be made are for the offices of secretary of state, supreme court judge, clerk of the supreme court, member of the board of publk works, electors and delegates to Minneapolis. The candidates of the Sherman Republicans for delegates to Min neapolis are Governor Mckinley, Will iam H. Hohn, Mark Uauna. and ex-Governor Foraker. The Foraker element, however, objeots to this division, and itig generals who were associated with Grant in the great civil struggle, the president, Mrs. Grant and family, 2.I3S committeemen, through whose efforts the fund was raised, and the Loyal Legion. Chauncey M. Depcw was a conspicuous Hgure on the presi dent's platform. After prayer had been offered, General Horace Porter, president of the Grant Monument Association, in a brief speech reviewed the work done by tin association and expressed a determination to complete the raising of the sum required to erect the monument, by next Decoration Day, the 30th of May. When he concluded the corner stone was swung into place and President Harrison placed the first cement upon it with a trowel made of gold. Chauncey M. Depew then delivered the oration of the day. The ceremony was then concluded. The monument when completed will be a noble work. The design chosen by the unanimous vote of the members of the executive committee ia the. work of John If. Duncan, who is also the suc- csssful competitor for a design for the soldiers' memorial areh now in course of erection in Prospect Park.lU'Ooklyn. The main part of the monument is a cube, loo feet in dimension. On top of that stands a pyramid about, seventy feet high, which is to be crowned eventually by an appropriate piece of statuary. The arclufcwUire'is of the Doric order. The four sides face the points of the compass, and the main entrance is on the south side. In front of it will be a collossal equestrian statue of General Grant. There are two other entrances, each side of the main one. Over them all oxteuds a gateless portico, at the top of which a, cornice runs, into which are worked the coats of arms of all the states of Pittsburg Governor McKinley of Ohio and Judge Thurston of Nebraska will be the orators at the Grant banquet. Governor McKinley will respond to the toast, "Geu. Grant," and Judge Thurston will speak on "The Republican Party." Society Scandal at l.yone. Lvo!f», Kan., April 27.—[Special.]— A society scandal in high life Is just now agitating the people of this city and community out of which serious trouble has already grown and much more serious results are quite likely to be the outcome, as the Infuriated husband, Lawyer Laslcy, bun given his intruder, Dr. Terry, three days to leave the city, and his time was up yesterday. Losley is a business kind of a man wiien it comes to matters of this character, and something is likely to drop unless matters are speedily compromised. It appears that for some time Mr. Laslcy has had suspicions of an|undue intimacy between Dr. Terry and his wife, and in order to lay a trap, told his suspected wife last Saturday afternoon, that lie was going to Sterling, and accordingly made arrangements, and as was of course, supposed by the suspected parties, had gone, which was true, but not to Sterling. At about 9 o'clock Dr. Terry untied at Mr. Lnsley's house, which was discovered by the husband, who was watching movements from some secreted point, and after giving the doctor ample time to demonstrate the object of his visit, got into the house through a window and proceeded up stairs, and found the doctor nnd Mrs. Laslcy in a room together and made at the unwise and unfortunate visitor with an open knife, which was wrenched from him by his wife, in the effort to do which Lnsley received an ugly cut on the hand in which he New Kainpehlre KupunllcttnH. CONCORD. N. H., April 27.—The Re- held the knife. In the meantime the doctor ileil and went out of the house, the same way, it is thought, in which his detector went in. We understand that Mrs. Lnsley Is packing her trunk, preparing to take a trip to the far west, and that Dr. Terry has had three days notice to get out of the city or take his chances at the muzzle of a loaded revolver. This is an unfortunate off-air as Lawyer Lasley is one of our highly respected citizens, and most prominent attorneys, and has the esteem of all our people who deeply sympathize with him. We understand that the father refuses to let the mother have the child, proposing to retain or take care of It, which tic has under the law perfect right to do. As to what the outcome will be is is difficult at this time to predict. AmtrcUlrttM -Sen tencctl. I'AHIH, April 28,—When the juvy in the ease of the anarchists who are on ' trial in the.

The platform us adopted endorses the Republican principles generally and particularly the administration of President Harrison and the last Kepublican congress. Maine Republican*. U.i.vooit, Maine, April 27.—The Republican state convention assembled at noon. The platform as adopted endorses protection to American labor, reciprocity, sound money, demands the political rights of all citizens and the purity of the ballot-box. It endorses the administration of President Harrison and praises the patriotic course of Hon. James G. Blaine. The platform also endorses the course of ex-Speaker Reed in the last congress, and callB for the renomination of President Harrison. Nebraeka Republican*. KKARNET, Neb., April 27,—The Re publican state convention to-daj adopted resolutions instructing the del egaU's to the national convention to vote for the renomination of Ilunjamln Harrison. ' is another cornice, into which are worked designs of weapons and battle- flags. Aside from these the outside of the monument is plain. The pyramid at the top extends to the apex by ter races, like the pyramids of Egypt. Thirty feet below its top there is row of windows, through which visitors may look from the inside. At the base of the monument are steps, forming a sufficient pedestal. Inside the whole space is open, making a large hall 85x75 feet, capable of containing one thousand people. At one side is a staircase leading to a gallery 122 fetet above the floor, from which visitors through the windows already mentioned, may obtain glorl ous views up and down the Hudson, east over the sound, and west to the wooded heights of New Jersey. The top of thb monument, which has generally been described as a "dome," is supported within by columnN. Directly over the entrance portico and above the four inner of the six Doric columns will be spaces for equestrian statues of the four generals who commanded the divisions of the army under Grant. In due entirely to the fear of the jurors that if the prisoners were condemned to death they would fall victims to anarchist vengeance. The newspapers generally condemn the verdict. Journal Des Debuts, commenting upon the result of the trial, says to-duy that it is to be regretted that the jury failed to perform their duty in the uuine noble manner that the officials performed theirs. The public shares the same opinion as that expressed by the newspaper. No one doubts that the jury was terrorized and the result is regarded as u triumph for the dynamiters.
