OROVER CLEVELAND ENDORSED. Illinois Ke|iubllcatis Meet In State Couven- Hon To-Day—Firor Will Probably bo llenninliiated for Governor, and Harrison Delegates Chosen—Connecticut En- thnslastlo for Harrison—Various inner State, County and District Conventions, MIMVAUKBE , May 4.—Representatives of the Democracy of Wisconsin packed the West Side Stadt hall this afternoon for the purpose of electing delegates to Minneapolis. The convention was called to order by Hon. 13. C. Wahl. The delegates are practically •unanimous in favor of Cleveland, although several of them admit that the ex -prosldent may not be a factor in the fight, and that it is probable that a western man .will take the prize. The indications ore, therefore that a Cleveland delegation will.be chosen which will be friendly to ex -Secretary Vilas as a dark horse for the second choice. Senator Palmer has quite a, strong following in this state but his candidacy will not be broached. There are no apparent signs of the alleged conspiracy to elect Hill delegates, the story of which recently created so much of a sensation. A wild cheer for Grover Cleveland went up before the convention had been in session sixty seconds. It was at the beginning of a speech by the temporary chairman, State Senator Robert Lees of Alma, opening the convention. Ho enthusiastic were the delegates and so anxious to inaugurate a Cleveland boom in earnest that the custom of prefacing the proceedings with prayer was completely overlooked. The speech of^'Chairman Lees was warmly received. Every reference to ex -President Cleveland seemed to touch off an earthquake, so uproar- ous and immediate was the outbreak of cheering. The tariff and financial planks in the resolutions arc as follows: We believe that unnecessary taxation ia unjust taxation and, therefore, we reaffirm the oft asserted doctrine that there should be no tariff taxation except for reveuue. We denounce the infamous legislation of the last Repub" lican congress, increasing the burden of taxation on the peple at large to enhance the bounties to the favored few. We maintain that the true interests of the people demand a sound, honest and stable money, composed af or based on and redeemable in gold and silver coin of equal intrinsic value. We therefore oppose the project of unlimited coinage of silver dollars of less commercial value than gold dollars as undemocratic, dishonest and specially hurtful to farmers and laboring classes, the first victims of unstable money and fluctuating currency. We denounce the Republican legislation on this subject, more particularly the Sherman act of 1800, a cowardly make-shift, an inexcusable waste of national resources in the purchase and storage of tons of bullion per day and as a menace to the maintenance of sound and stable currency, and we demand the repeal of that act. We heartily commend the action of those Democratic representatives in congress from this state who have opposed all measures of silver coinage on a false basis. In regard to the public school question the resolutions say: We are opposed to state interfenee with parental rights and the rights of conscience in the education of our children as an infringement of the fundamental Democratic doctrine that the largest individual liberty consistent with the rights of others insures the highest type of American citizens and the best government. The delegates are thus instructed for Cleveland: We desire our delegates at the national convention to use all honorable means to nominate for president the man who is in himself the embodiment und guarantee of sound Democratic principles—Grover Cleveland. Illinois Republicans.

Parson as secretary of state, and C. W. Pavey as auditor, although there are candidates in the field for all these offices.

D., May 4 The Republican state convention is in session here this afternoon. President Harrison will be endorsed, and delegates, favorable to his renomination sent to Minneapolis.

In the United States there is scarcely a city which bus advanced nt all which cannot boast of a greater growth than 30,000 in sixty years. Besides, there are now scores of plare.. which wore not in fxiateiico until Crewe was a quarter of n century old and yet surpass it in population, A World's Fair Feature.
