MAY BE CALLED. National Silver League Convention Suggested for March 16,1896. Western Silverites Said to Desire It— Protest from California's Leagu* —Meeting at Salt Lake City. ST. Louis, May 15.-It is likely that a call for a national silver league convention will be issued to meet in this city in March, 1890. The matter is being agitated by the local silver men and they claim they are backed up by the silver men of the west, and particularly so by the white metal people of California, who claim to be disappointed at the methods adopted by Gen, A. J. Warner, of Ohio, on his recent visit to California. The California State Silver league finds fault with Gen. Warner for limiting his eiforts in an attempt to secure unlimited coinage of silver at a ratio of 10 to 1. The league contains a large number of populists, and they do not think any financial platform would be complete unless it included a provision for an issue of greenbacks and an explicit declaration against the national banking system and the issuance of any more government bonds. J. U. Follett, of St. Louis, is in communication with prominent silver men throughout the country, and if he receives assurance that such a convention is opportune he will issue a call for it to be held here on March 10, 1890. Cullforniii Silvnrlten ProteHt. SAN FRANCISCO, May IS.— Instead of the'great results for free coinage aimed at, thu visit to California of Gen. A. J. Warner, of Ohio, head of the American Jbimetallie party, and Congressman Hoseph C. Sibley. of Pennsylvania, has' apparently been productive of the opposite effect. The.result is the flat secession of the state silver league from Gen. Warner's national organization. The executive committee was called at Los Angeles Saturday afternoon. The entire matter was submitted to a sub-committee of five to report upon it. The following is an excerpt of the report: "Tuoy strnchlle the nationiil bnnk question by pretending to clve tliu. gcuoral government the exclusive control over the Issue and -tQlumo of pupor money, when in truth.,"Tn*eir plutfonn can bo fully complied Vitli by leaving tbe issue and vol- urno of puper money wholly in tlio hauds of the national banks. Taey attempt '.o le:id the people.into the boiler that they, who are urfrlng Mr. Sibley for the presidency, are opposed to government partnership with national bauliinc Institutions that control the circulating mediums at the pleasure of their foroigu stockholders," : • ' , The committee., therefore, recommended-the adoption'of some plainly worded resolutions condemning Gen. Warner and Mr. Sibley, appealing to sister',' .states to organize like tbe California league and to protect against the caucus method, and calling for a national convention of state leagues to meet at St. Louis, March 10, 1890, to nominate candidates for president and vice president. : JllE Silver -Conference. SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, May 15.—The delegates to the silver conference here have arrived. California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and - L'tah have full delegations and there are large numbers of silver men from surrounding regions, Montana being especially strong in representation..-. Wednesday's meetings were held in the big Mormon tabernacle. The conference will close with a banquet Friday night, 1 The Ore At Keme.dy. Fulty.2,000people were pTesent when Gov. Rickards, of Montana, called the convention to order. Gov. Rickards made, an impassioned address of half an hour's length, detailing the motive of the convention, which he said was without party prejudice, and irresistible, because it was not partisan. "The common people of the.wbole country," he said, "were discontented with our 'financial conditions and were turning en masse to the free coinage of silver as the great remedy." MACCABEES^ ELECT OFFICERS. in the temple in this city Tuesday. Toe sessions were occupied with the reading of the reports of Supreme Commander L. P. Markey and Supreme Record-keeper N. S Boynton.
