At 2:1 ii the convention was called to order, and the committee on rules and order of business submitted the following report: First, nominations for congressman-at-large; next, selection of three presidential electors, followed by the selection of alternates to the national convention. James Legate of Leavenworth, moved that the convention dispense with the report (if the committee on credentials, and that when a vote is taken the county be called and the delegates present be authorized to cast the vote of that county. The motion prevailed. The great audidence gathered in the Auditorium this afternoon was of a character to inspire an orator, and the permanent chairman, J. li. Cubbison of Wyandotte, in accepting the honor of the convention, made a most enthusiastic speech which elicited great applause throughout. The speech was taken by the NEWS' short-hand reporter, but the time of going to press will not permit its being printed in this issue. The platform as presented and adopted, is as follows: Mi. CHAIRMAN; Your committee on resolutions desire to report as follows: Resolved, First — We hereby express our sorrow at the loss which has been sustained on account of the death of Senator Preston B. Plumb; a loss not only to his family, near friends and fellow citizens of this state, but also to the people of this nation. He was a statesman in tho highest and best sens'; of that term. He labored to advance the public interest not only of his immediate constituents but of the whole American people. He was the product of American institutions. By his own unaided efforts he grew from a poor anil obscure boy on the frontier prairies of Kansas, to be one of the most eminent statesmen of his time. We prundl3' commend the great success of his life to the young men of this nation. Second—The Republicans of Kansas demand such amendment of the interstate commerce law as will forever prohibit the discrimination in freight rates now being practiced by tho great railway corporations against the merchants and consumers of this state, and in favor of the merchants and consumers of other states. Third—That we urge the passage of such laws as will increase the coinage of silver, looking to the coinage of the production of our own mines as soon as it can be done without injury to the business interests of the country. And that we approve the efforts of the present administration in seeking the co-operation of the principal commercial nations of the world in bringing silver to a parity with gold as the currency of the world. Fourtli—That we urge upon congress the enactment of more stringent legislation against the emigration of the vicious and pauper element foreign- born citizens to this country, and the naturalization thereof. Fifth—That we reaffirm our adherence to the declaration of the platform of 188.S in favor of protection to our American industries and American labor, and invite the closest scrutiny of the workings of the present tariff law Sixth—That we ihoartily endorse and commend the clean, strong and patriotic administration of President Harrison, especially its vigorous efforts to promote our commercial interests abroad, and uphold the honor and dig- nitv of the nation; and note with great i. ..: 3 : ,i.

KANSAS CITV, May 5.—The Star's Topeka, Kansas, special says: The heavy rain of yesterday here was followed last night by a fall of water that amounted almost to a cloud burst. As the result the city to-day is one-third under water. The storm last night created consternation among the people, many of whom moved to places of greater safety. Many families were obliged to move by means of boats or rudely constructed rafts. The water in the streets varies in depth from six inches to a foot and many lower stories ire under-water. The creek that Hows through the town overflowed its banks and added to the general alarm. Some foundations weakened but no serious damage was done. The tracks of the Burlington washed out for a distance of 200 feet at Hren- ner. seven miles north of Atchison. The Missouri Pacific was obliged to abandon its Lincoln branch in Nebraska on account of land slides and washouts. All the streams in southern Nebraska and northwestern Kansas are out of their banks and are doing much damage to crops. Illinois Republican*. Si'iiiNGFiEi.D, 111., May 5.—The Republican state convention reassembled at i) o'clock this morning and another day of excitement was apparent from the very beginning. The action of the committee on resolutions in recommending a repeal of the compulsory school law and the substitution of greatly modified legislation had created a spirit of discontent in certain quarters, and the action of the committee to select delegates-at-large had also dissatisfied the young Republican League, as well as the colored gentle men who assumed to represent their race on the floor of the convention and it appeared that the ere of good feeling had passed. Chairman Hopkins imme diately after calling tho convention to order declared the reports of committees to be inorder. The sitting delegates were declared to be regular delegates and the temporary officers were made the permanent officers of the convention. The committee to select delegates at large reported the following delegates: Senator Cullom, ex-Governor Oglesby, Congressman Cannon, Dr. Joseph Rollins of Quincy, James H. Gilbert, Sum uel B. Raymond, George B. Swift and Miles Kehoe, all of Chicago. The nomination of governor being in order, Senator Carey placed Gov. Fifer in nomination. Horace Clark, George Hunt, Joel Longnecker and B F. Marshall were also placed in nomination. The ballot resulted as follows: Fifer, 041; Longneckr, 120: Clark, 03; Hunt, 31, and March, 30. Governor Fifer was declared the nom ince umid great enthu- m. Lieutenant Governoi ivay was renom­ inated for lieutenant governor on the tion and degradation of the national currency in the threatened coinage of silver at its lace value; favors an international conference looking to the restoration of silver in the monetary system of the world, and condemns the suppression of the negro vote in the south. On the subject of education tho platform pledges the Republican party to repeal the present compulsory school act aud in lieu thereof the enactment of the new law which shall not interfere with parochial or private schools. George S. Willet was nominated for congrcssman-at-large. Wi*con*Ui Republican*. Mn.wAUKEK, May ">.—The Republican state convention met to-day. Ogden H. Fethcrs was chosen temporary chairman. His mention of the names of Harrison and Blaine was greeted with great enthusiasm. The Blaine sentiment was especially prominent, and when the secretary of state was referred to, delegates jumped up on chairs, waving handkerchiefs, umbrellas and hats. The committee on resolutions reported the platform. The committee on resolutions reported the platform. The platform endorses unqualifiedly the administration of •Harrison and praises its act in recommending the tariff legislation of the Fifty-first congress; denounces the narrow parsimony of tho present congress as "miscalled economy." The platform contains the followiug plank ou the financial question: "While wc favor tho use of both gold and silver as money me'tals under conditions which shall guarantee their circulation at continuing and substantial parity with each other under existing circumstances and conditions, we are unalterably opposed to free and unlimited coinugo of silver." Movement for international silver conference is condemned and modification of silver act of 181)0 to enable the president to regulate silver purchases is recommended. Platform further highly compliments President Harrison, but does not contain instructions to delegates to vote for him. Virginia Republican*. ROANOKE, Va., May f>.—An unin- strueted delegation will be sent to Minneapolis by the Republican state convention which opens hero this afternoon with Gen. Mahone in the chair. A resolution endorsing the administration of President Harrison will, however, be passed. Gen. Mahone John M. Livingston and Gen. Edgar Allen will be three of the delegates at large. Half a dozen politicians want the fourth place. Mahone Is not particularly favorable to Harrison from the fact that the latter appointed Mu- hone's bitter enemy, Col. James B. Brady, collector of Internal revenue. Brady made u strong effort to defeat Mahone in the county conventions, but succeeded in getting only one- tenth of the delegates. Rhode iKhuid Republican*. PHOVIDENOK, H. I., May 6.—The Republican state convention met this morning to elect delegates to the Minneapolis convention. Benjamin Bosworth of Warren was chosen temporary chairman. He delivered an address. The name of Harrison called forth slight applause, while that of Blaine brought forth more.

District delegates—Charles Fletcher, Isaac L. Ooff, Henry A. Steadens and Edward A. Thayer. Convention then adjourned. Idaho Republican*. PoCATEr.i.o, May n.—The Republican state convention to select delegates to Minneapolis was called to order here this afternoon by Hon. J. Pinkham of Boise City. No slate has been made up for delegates-at-lai ge. The Republicans of Idaho are almost unanimously in favor of the Plumed Knight if he can be induced to run. Their second choice is President Harrison. There is considerable feeling against the president, however, on account of his appointment of Judge Beatty as United States district judge against the earnest protest of the Idaho delegation In congress, and the supreme bench and bar of the state. first ballot. N. I. Peirson wss renominated for secretary of state and Gen. W. C. Pavey of Mt. Vernon renominated for auditor, Hertz nominated for treasurer and George W. Prince of Knox county for attorney-general. The platform endorses President Harrison's administration, commends the McKJnley bill, endorses reciprocity, Instructs the delegation to the national convention to vote for the re- nomination of President Harrison praises Secretary Blaine's administration of affairs in the state department arraigns the Democratic party for treachery to honest money; endorses Republican defense against apeeuli W««t Virginia Republican*.
