Kuropcan Bold was flowing toward' us. But all of this Is changed. The cause,is not-hard to seek. A 'reaction began -when It was known that Vhc legislative and e-enutive'branchcs of the government .were to be democratic. The-Wilton Hill. Sp'oalclns of the Wilson bill Mr. Fairbanks said, that It was lacking In tho primary 1 - purpose of a revenue measure, -falling.I'to' provide adcauate revenue to nieet the requirements of tne government. The- deficiency, said he, grows day by day, : Impairing foreign credit and rmiking do- 1 raestlc capital- Insecure. He charged the • Wilson law with marked sectional favor- Itism . re'ferrlnK especially to the free wool clause. He referred to reciprocity . as' :one of the highest achievements In American statesmanship. Then, too, the "substitution of'ad valorem --for specific duties came In for a heavy scoring—"opening tlie' way for. ' systematic wholesale frauds upon the. treasury and producers and employes of the country." A Sliurp Contrnnt. "All this," Mr. Fairbanks.said, "was In sharp contrast with-'the republican record.

Other Temporary Ofncer» Appointed. At the conclusion of Mr. Fairbanks' speech Mr. Carter proposed the appointments of the secretary, assistant secretaries, sergenats-at-arms, official stenographers and other officials, and persons so named were declared duly appointed. Mr. NV. Lamb, delegate from Virginia, offered a resolution wh!-h was agreed to that until 'i ]i.-.niijir.e!?t organization i? effected the convention will be governed by the rules of tfie last republican convention. MeiiibcrH of Committees Jinincd. Mr. J^amb also offered another resolution, which WHS also adopted, ordering that the roll of. stau-s and territories be now called and that the chairman of eacli delegation announce,the names of the persons selected to serve on the several committees a.s follows: • .' 1. On permanent organization. 2. On rules and order of business. 3. On credentials. 4. On resolutions. M.so that all resolutions In respect to the platform shall be referred to the convention without, debate. The states- were'then called for their selection of : delegates as members of the several committees. When the name of Senator Teller was announced as the member of the committee on rules from his state there was a small outburst of applause, after which the call was proceeded with. When Massachusetts sent up the name ol Senator Lodge as its representative on fhc committee 1 •onTe'soIuiTons, there was : a- counter demonstration on the part -of the gold standard men. The name of Joseph B. Foraker was sent up as the representative of the state of Ohio on the committee on resolutions, and when it was read'from, the clerk's desk It was hailed with-.cheers.

Aft.er on announcement of the places and times of meeting of the four committees, the convention at 1M7 adjourned to Wednesday at ten a. m.'

Full -Text of Financial Plank as Agreed Upon by Messrs. Hanna, Foraker and Lodge. St. Louis. June 11.—For over an hour before and after midnight the hostilo factions that wero shouting a.nd cheering, one for ReeU and iht othi-r for McKinley, pushed and crushed up and down tlio wide stone st.-ilrCiiM- of the Southern hotel, and finally cam'.- into collision in the lobby. Banners of tMo I'lval candidates, In the hands of strong and excited men, rtntinted defiance at encli other, and finally invited reciprocal attacks, In which 1 they received hard i;wig>! and were. som« of them, torn and demolished. In thcso "rushes" a couple of electric liirht globe* wc-re broker., and the hostilities became so .'ictive that, finally, thvy had to be sujiprfspeil hy a platoon of police summoned for the purpose. Sf-vera! incipient hnnd fljrhts were stopped, with no more damage to the participants than a few bleeding noses. Some of the more obstreperous Individuals vt-re expelled from. th,; lobby by the police, but this had llttl* <;ITect upon the noisy, surRlns. vociferous crowd. ,\t last the captain.of police acted resolutely In the matter and ejected from the hotel all the banner-bearers: and as the club men followed these, the factions separated, the crowds dispersed and comparative quiet was restored. Look for Final Adjournment Tlmrsdmy. There was some talk Tuesday morning: of an-ancring- the work of the convention so as to have a final adjournment by Thursday, ana it is understood that several special trains have been ordered for Friday morning with that prospect In view. ' Hark Hanna, the business manager of tlie McKinley branch of the convention RULKKLET. (If not of-yie entire nffalr), Is credited with the prdsramme by which this Is to be carried out. The committees on credential* and on resolutions were appointed Tuesday and arc to hold continuous session* by day and night until they arc prepared to report. The report of the committee on.. credentials is to be adopted by the convention In the most summary and 'speedy manner, and then the way will be clear for the presentation of the platform, whlcn. the committee on resolutions Is expected to have ready by that time. One day is supposed by Mr. Hanna to be sufficient time for discussion and action on the, platform, and then only a few matters of minor Importance will remain to be dim- posed of. • In confirmation of the probable truth o* this report. It Is stated that the special car In which ex-Senator Platt came to St Louis Is ordered to be in readinew lor leaving- here by Thursday night or Friday mornlnp, and also that Mr. Hann». has stated contldentlally that he. expect* to "leave here by Friday evening. But. of course, mere desires and intention* avail little against serious obstacles, and the obstacles in this case will come Iroin, two self-opposing forces-the advocates ol the "gold standard," and the men who. will b» satisfied with nothing less than a.. declaration In favor of free silver. THE FINANCIAL PLANK. Kill Text as Agreed Upon by Ilannit, Foraker nod Lodee.
