The reading of the list of vice presidents was Interrupted by applause as popular names were reached. Mr, Mudd.of Maryland, made the point of order that although the convention might receive the report of tho committee on permanent organization, It could not act upon It until the report of the committee on credentials had been acted upon. There wns no convention here, now, he said. The chairman overruled tho point of. order and promptly put the question on the adoption of the report of the committee on permanent 'organization.

The • remainder of the platform was, ha added, entirely satisfactory to him. A Vatbetlc Scene. There was a pathetic scene In the committee room when the financial plank wa» reached and Senator Teller, of Colorado, presented his minority report. It took the form oi' a substitute and declared in general terms for the free and unlimited, coinage of silver at a ratio of sixteen to one. Senator Teller spoke for'SO minutes. His utterances were followed with deep interest for all present realized that the hour had arrived when one of the founders of the republican party, a rrmn who had been conspicuous In republican counsels for a third of a century, was taking a step which, would separate him from his party friends. Teller JJceplv .Moved. Mr. Teller spoke wkh deep emotion, and. the sincerity of his purpose was so manifest that his words produced a deep ifli- pression. He spoke of his long connection with the republican party. It was the party of hi» young manhood; the party of his choice. I'l was the jrarty with which he had affiliated for 35 years. It v,-.is A party that had given him groat honors, and he had served It loyally. "But," he exclaimed, In a voice of deep earnestness, "the time hns come when I shall he obliged to leave It, If It declares • lor the single gold standard." He explained In conclusion that he had nft originally Intended to speak at such length, but that he was carried away by the Importance of his subject. It was purely* matter of conscience and principle. Thero Wtts no question of personal ambition Involved. He might be wrong; he believed, not. Time alone could tell whether he or t!ie fr-.^,crj of this ;)!.".£k were right. Mr. Cannon, of Utah, Speaks. Mr. Cannon! o£ Utah, like Mr. Teller, created a profound sensation by tho earnestness of his rerr.irks. Several times his voice was choked with emotion and lie proceeded with great difficulty. He pointed out that Utah had been converted 1'roni a democratic territory into £. republican state, but that It would be irre- irlevxbly lost if the party were commltted- to the gold standard. lie bitterly deplored the necessity which compelled him to leave the party of hl» choice, but existing circumstances left him no alternative. Mr. Dubols Ueclurcn Ills Withdrawal. Mr. Dubois, of Idaho, also announced that he would follow his associates, Messrs. Teller and Cannon, In leaving the party, although he regretted that necessity compelled him to take this step.

SENATOR HENRY M. TELLER. nf many of the eastern states whose rep—. resentalives were adopting a course that was driving the silver men from their party associates. He showed that New York was represented in the senate by Iwo democrats; that Indiana had two, and Ohio and Illinois one each. If this gold plunk was adopted the republican party would, he said, lose control of the senat* and not regain it in a quarter of a century. Mr. Mrewcr Kr|>rc«ie» Regret. Mr. Brewer, of. Michigan, following Mr. Dubols, expressed his regret that the silver men should feel compelled to tako the course they had Indicated. However, he, for one, felt that the partlnc of the: roads between Senator Dubois, his associates and their constituents on the one hand and the republican party on the other, had been reached when the flvo republican silver, senators took the ground In the United States senate that no measure for the relief of the revenues of tho government and the protection of our Industries 'should be permitted to be considered and passed while they were members oC the. senate, unless such measure. carried with It a provision for the free and unlimited coinage of silver. If there was any one thins the American people demanded, it was sufficiency of revenue uiion which to support the government. The government could not be starved, no matter what party was in power. If there . was liny one principle that the republican party innintamcd, and must be held inviolate, It was the principle upon which a protective tariff was founded, u.nd when rtr publican senators refused to Indorse that principle, it mattered little whether the states wc-rc represented In the senate by republicans or democrats.
