Gray-haired nicu, .who have boeu identified with tho rrolli'ics of the country for forty years', say. that just prior to the break between' the North and the South over slavery, bitterer things were not said against the North! than have been said here against the East by the men w.iio are representing the Sowth, The cry lias been, on. the part of 'the .South, "YVe'liave become slaves to the -money power of the East, and wo propose to break away, never to return." An InfU.anlun, who served many years In Congress, bait who aid not .care to have his name used Jn connection with tlie subject, saJd today that he had seen this tiring coming for six years. "Samuel J. Tilden once said that the Democrats would elect one President. of tills country and the South would then assume control of the party, and another, would jpevor be elected," said he.

He knew appeals would he made to them by time-serving politicians not to listen to the mouthlngs of this South Carolina ranter.but he warned them that unless they repudiated Cleveland's administration they would go before the country stultl- llcd.

Mr. Tlllman then read his resolution, as follows: "We denounce the administration of President Cleveland as'undemocratic and tyrannical, and as a departure from those principles which an: cherished by all Hb- trty-lovlnjj -Americans. The veto power has been used to thwart the .will of the j'popk- as expressed by their representatives In congress. The appointing: power bus been used to subsidize ihe press, to debauch congress and to overawe and cojitrol citizens, in the free exercise of their constitutional rights as voters. A plutocratic despotism is -.hug sought 10 be established on the ruins of the republic. We repudiate the construction placed on the linanclnl plank of the last democratic national convention by President Cleveland and Secretary Carlisle as contrary to th«plain meaning of Knfjlish words, and as being :in act of bnd faith, deserving the w- vori'st censure.

Then gradually the tumult end and finally silence reigned. . A Democrat But Not » Revolutlonlif 1 Mr, Hill began In slow and distinct tones, saying that following the course of the senator from South Carolina he would Introduce himself by saying: "I ani a democrat, but I am not a revolutionist." [Cheers.] Without Intending to especially reply to the remarks, of the distinguished senator from South Carolina, he would only say that It was a waste of time for him to assume that we were so Ignorant as-not to know that It was South Carolina that In If CO attempted to destroy the union. His (Mr. Hill's) mission here to-day wai to build up, not to destroy. He knew ho addressed a convention that did not agree with all tho views he held, but ha knew they would hear him for his cau»e. New York made no apology, to South. Carolina. [Cheers.] She did hot need It. Need he remind this great convention that It was New York city, whose wealth had hccn so decried, that had always been the Gibraltar of democracy. . .Speaking of the deficit of H0,000,«00 which, had arisen .because a tariff bl!l passed by the democratic party had not "as yet," (as he Bald with emphasis), yielded enough revenue for the necessities of the government, this was a .foolish issue to have raised. It put the democratic party on the defensive in every school -district la • th'e country. The burden Imposed upon the eastern states by this sliver plank was' all they could reasonably be expected to . carry without Imposing on them all these additional Issues. He did not believe In driving men- out of the democratic party [cheers] to make room for a lot of republicans and whlgs and populists who have never voted the democratic ticket In their, lives. [Loud cheering.] "I .tell you," h« added, imprfesslvely, "no matter.who your candidate may be, with one exception, your populist friends will nominate their own "tickets aiid your forces will, be divided.
