It WIIIHa**Muy C*nt*at* to B* Can- Uy Associated Pnsa, St. Louis, June 10.-- -The Republican national committee met at noon todaj, Chairman Thomas I', farter of Montana presiding, for the consideration of the 1GS contests for heats in the convention. , The meeting was executive and the press and pii'dlic was excluded. The members of the comraittee are of the opinion that the interest of the party uould be promoted by a »ery careful consideration of all on their merits regardless of personal preferences or the prejudices of the contestants of the financial question. Their decision will only affect the tem- fHirary organization, but they ho|je to da their work so thoroughly as to hau- no room for birt little change by the committee on credentials. There will be something of a contest n\er the selection of a temjwrary chair- mam. The MoKinley men hnve decided on ('. \V. Fairbanks of Indiana. but many members of the national committee ore urging Samuel l-'essenden of Connecticut. He is not satisfactory to the -McKinley leaders, and if named by the national committee might precipitate a contest yi the convention. The majority of the delegates now In n- seem inclined to believe a straddle in the financial plank of the platform not advisable. The point is made that a straddle would not hold the silver states and might result in putting a gold Democrat in the field and the loss of Xew York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The committee had lieen in session only a few minutes when Keren* offered a motion to -admit the press. n hich was adopted. On motion of Powell Clayton, it was decided the committee should proceed in the following order: first -- All contests ;o Te heard and determined by the whole committee. Second-- States and territories to be called alphabetically. Third-- Contestants, conteslees and counsel, if desired, will tie admitted to the hearing in which they are interested and each aide will be allowed to file briefs and bo given fifteen minutes for argument. . Hansbrough of North Dakota sng' gested it would expedite matters to distribute the contests among subcommittees. as has been the practice on |trevknis occasions, but Clayton met this with the reply that there had been a great many instances of favoritism and he thought it better the full committee should hear all contests. Clayton's motion was then adopted. A committee consisting of Payne of Wisconsin. Ferdon of Connecticut, and DrYoung of California was appointed to prepare resolutions expressive of the committee's sens* of bereavement over the death of Ooimnitteeman Campbell of Illinois. Announcement wan made 1hat Hon. J. W. Fifer had been appointed to fill the vacancy occasioned bv Campbell's death. 'The resignation at Governor Bradley of Kentucky was announced, as was the appointment of Yerkes to succeed him. A recess was then taken. At the opening of the afternoon session. Secretary Manlev read a letter saving the Southern. St. Nicholas. Laclede and I.indell hotels would live np to the agreement mad* by the Business Men league relative to the accommodation of colored men at hotels. The contested eases were then taken up. the first being delegates at targe from Alabama, which was presented by D. D. Shelby of the McKinley delegation. He said the convention which elected delegates had 332 delegates, which was a majority of the regularly elected delegates. Governor Smith spoke for the Mosely delegation. He claimed the Montgomery convention was irregular. A. J. Warmer (colored) of 4he Mosely delegation next made an argument. B. A. Mosely, Jr., closed the argument for the delegation known by his name. He said he toad been chairman of the committee many years and all precedents had been lor a temporary roll of delegates. He said he 'had the same fight in 1892, and the convention seated his delegation. M. A. Wickersham closed the argument for the Buckley delegation. Clayton moved to seat the Buckley (McKinley) delegation. Senator Gear of Iowa moved to substitute the Mosely delegation. Southerland of Xew York moved to refer the whole matter to a committee of three to sift evidence and report tomorrow. This motion -was voted down without dhision. Shoup of Idaho moved to seat both delegations, with half a vote each. This was also voted down and a vote taken on Gear's motion, which was defeated. 7 to 38. The motion of Clayton was then adopted without opposition. It was generally considered that it was a McKinley victory, although several committeemen not favorable to McKin- lev voted against the Mosely delegation. The delegates at large which were seated were the following: P. I. Shelbv. C. W. Buckley. J. W. Jones. W. R. Pet'tiford. all of whom are instructed for McKinley. Contests in nine districts were then taken up and all decided except those from the Third and Fifth, in which the hearings were postponed on account ol the absence of either contestants or eontestees. The points at issue in the Sixth and Eighth districts were settled outside the committee and the contests in both instances withdrawn The issue was presented to the committee In all the other cases. Of eighteen delegates whose cases were decided either by vote of committee or by withdrawal sixteen are for McKinlej and two for Heed for president. There was no division upon any contests except that made in the case of delegate? at large, and this was overwhelminglj in favor of the Vaughn, or 'MeKinley delegates, and against the Mosely or anti-McKinley men. At the conclusion of the considera tion of the Alabama contested eases the committee recessed evening. The evening session was taken u] by the Georgia contests. The entire state was disposed of except one district. Of twenty-four delegates seated today all but two favor McKinley. MAMLEY'fl PREDICTION Sayn McKlaley Will R* Nominated on the Flrrt Ballot.

OMd., June 10.--The Democratic state convention met today and Senator (ionium was made temporary chairman. In the course of his address, he said: "We come together here today, not to discuss local affairs. I would not give much for the Democracy of any man who would rake up the embers ol the past and air his private grievances at the expense of his party." He referred in complimentary terms to President Cleveland, and his administration. ·A motion that «ll resolutions be road to the convention before being referred to the committee on resolutions was the first gun from the silver men, and the vote is looked upon as a test. It was overwhelmingly defeated, not more than a dozen favoring it. The committees were chosen ami a recess taken. On reassembling Gorman was made permanent chairman. He delivered a speech saying he would join in reorganizing the party so that "never again witihin this generation would it pas« from control in this state and nation." The committee on resolutions reported the platform, the financial plank ol which is a straight out endorsement of the present gold standard and an emphatic condemnation of free coinage of silver at 1C to 1. The resolutions favor 0 tariff for revenue only and endorse the Cleveland administration. Major Stewart, presented a minority report the exact rexerse of this on the principal points. The majority report overwhelmingly. was adopted jreat suffering among the laboring classes." The plank also favors a bajnk note currency ample for the needs of the country^ always redeemable in gold. The'platform endorses Cleveland's administration, especially its financial ind foreign policy. The delegates to the Chicago convention were selected. In deference to the wishes of ex-Governor Russell of Mas sachusetts the delegates were not in structed on the subject of a presidential candidate. SOUND MONET IN IOWA.

It bore the faces of -McKinley and Hobart of Xew .lerey. He said with McKinley at the head "of the ticket an eastern man was wanted as a running mate. He believed Hobart the available man. He would help to keep Xew Jersey in the Republican ranks nnd was strong in Xew York. He said he beKeved the Indiana declaration on the financial question would form the model of which the money plank would be based. He said it was brief, explicit and very skillfully avoided in reference by name to any of the mooted question". "It is unmistakably a sound money utterance and at the same time, avoids all mention of the gold standard, reference to which by name would drive votes away from the ticket in some states." The Indiana form of expression would be more acceptable in the east than that of Ohio. Be believed the Indiana platform would be satisfactory lo all the western states except the silver producing states of Colorado. Ttah. Montana. Idaho. Xevada and possibly Wyoming. But as they have altogether only nineteen votes in the electoral college tbe party could afford to lose pressed by the chair. These delegates at large were elected: John V.. Hurst.
