Strong Efforts living Made to Secure an Unlnstructcd iDclcj^atlon—Now Jersey Democrats Kndorsc Cleveland unci Freo Trade—South Dakota and Washington nomocracy—Colorado Democrats Favor a Free Silver Candidate. LOUISVII.LK , Ky., May 25.—The Democratic state convention which assembled here at noon promises to be one of the most interesting hold in this state in recent years. Henry Waterson is determined that the delegation to Chicago shall be in line for Senator Hill, while cx-Goveruor Proctor Knott and ex-Attorney General Harding-and other leaders are just as determined that the Blue Grass state shall loom up solidly for ex-President Cleveland. The latter, it is claimed, has a large majority of the delegates in the convention, although the indications are that there are enough of the opposition to make music. Ex-Governor Proctor Knott has recently returned from a trip through the uorthwesi, and says thut the Democratic feeling in that section of the country for Cleveland is absolutely universal, and that he does not believe that anyone else will be placed in serious nomination before the convention. Henry Wuttcrson will be one of the delegates, together with World's Fair Commissioner MeKonzie. The delegates from about thirty-five counties favor an uninstmeted delegation free to declare its choice by the couditions existing at the time of the Chicago convention, while the balance are about equally divided between Cleveland and Carlisle. The anti-Cleveland element seems to have lost all hope of securing instructions for Carlisle, and will probably use their entire influence to prevent instructions for Cleveland. It is doubtful, hower, whether they will succeed. New Jersey Democracy. TRENTON , N. J., May 25.—The Democratic state convention for the purpose of electing delegates to Chicago was called to order at Taylor's opera house at noou by Hon. Allen McDormott. Hon. James Swift, .Tr., was made temporary chairman, and in a ringing address prophesied Democratic victory next fall. An allusion to ex-l'resident Cleveland was received with loud and long continued applause. This afternoon the convention will select a solid Cleveland delegation, notwithstanding the fact that up to a few days ago Governor Leon Abbett and. his friends were avowed supporters of Senator Hill. The explanation given for the sudden change which hits been led by United States senators WcPherson and Blodgett is that Cleveland is needed to hold the state next fall, owing to the strong campaign that the Republicans made in the recent municipal elections and which they propose to continue until November. The result of the Jersey City election has convinced the Democratic leaders that hard work will be necessary from now on, and that it will not be safe to go into the campaign with a new and vulnerable standard bearer. The platform endorses Cleveland's administration, reaffirms the tariff declarations of 1884 and 1888, criticises the extravagance of the last congress and denounces the McKinley bill. South Dakota Democrats YANKTON , S. D., May 25.—The Democratic state convention will be called to order at 4 o 'clock this afternoon at Turner Hall by Hon. Otto Teemiller. All the delegates are on the ground and interviews with them indicate thut Cleveland is the almost unanimous choice. At the same time the sentiment is favorable to the eight delegates going to Chicago uninstrueted. This is the first time that the South Dakota Democrats have had a voice in the choice of a candidate forthe presidency of the United States, and the convention will therefore be one of the m ist interesting in the history of the Dakotas. Hon. Martlett Tripp of Yankton, will head the delegation. Colorado Democracy. DENVKH , Col., May 25.—The hotels are crowded with delegates to the Democratic state convention which assembles this afternoon. This morning the delegates to Chicago from districts are being elected, no district conventions having been held. The free silver men appear to bo largely in the majority, and the indications point to an unin strueted delegation to Chicago, favoring any candidate who is in accord with the Democracy of Colorado on the silver question. Demooraoy In the State or Washington, VANCOUVER, Wash., May 25.—The state Democratic convention opened here this afternoon. The delegates to Chicago will be unanimous for Cleveland, the few prominent Hill men who were active a month ugo have given up in disgust. Many of the county Democratic conventions have refused to approve any candidates for national delegates until they had all publicly avowed themselves for Cleveland. Failed to Got Together. BATON ROUGH, La., May 25.—The efforts to harmonize the differences between the McBnery and Poster factions have failed, and there will be a contesting delegation in the Democratic national convention. The Brewer*' Association, BOSTON, May >25.—The thirty-second annual convention of the United States Brewers' association met here this morning. The principal business transacted was a decision to exhibit at the world's fair maps, charts, pamph eta and statistical tables to illustrate he magnitude of the brewing trade.

In no other city in the union, or, for that matter, in the world, is there such a great celebration every year of Sunday School scholars. Back in the fifties when Brooklyn was little more than a village all the Sunday School children wore wont to parade annually in a vacant lot In what is now the business section of the town. The increase of the city since those days has made it necessary to have parades in different sections, so that looking from a great height upon Brooklyn to-day it would seem us though the four quarters of the city were thronged with white-robed armies in marching array. Business is generally suspended, flags are lloating on all public buildings, and the schools, private aud public are closed. For weeks past loving mothers have been anxiously preparing their little ones so that they might look their very best upon this day above all others, while the little ones, with the young ones of larger growth have entered into the spirit of tho occasion with enthusiusm aud delight, with the result of an unparalleled spectacle which has made this day famous in the history of the City of Churches. The parade was forme, in twelve divisions, the largest of which was that at Prospect park in which there wero no less than I.'),000 little ones. They gathered at Anniversary hall at noon and participated in the open air services, including the singing of hymns and a brief address. Then the division formed in line and marched past the reviewing stand upon which were Mayor David A. Hoody, Hon. James S. Stranahan, and other prominent persons. The other divisions met in the respective Sunday schools and participated in indoor services, at the conclusion of which they returned through the streets headed by bands and carrying their school banners.
