Two Manchus who have arrived at Shanghai certify to the truth of the statement that Prince Tuan visited the palace and offered the emperor and the dowager empress the alternative of poison or the sirord. The emperor, they say. took poison and died within an hour. The dowager empress also chose poison, but craftily swallowed only a portion of what was offered her and survived. On the same day the Chinese customs bureau was destroyed, Sir Robert Hart, the inspector of ci-.s- toms. and his staff escaping to the i=- j gations. i Intense indignation is felt in Shanghai against the supposed action of the powers in restraining Japan from sending an army to Pekin immediately.- The powers are accused of being guilty of murder, as axe Prince Tuan's fanatics, and Sir Robert Hart is blamed for not having informed the foreigners of the immense imports of arms.

An- nounct-» 1II» liitruttuu to Vote the Democratic Ticket. Kaunas City, Mo., July 6.--William Jennings Bryan, of Nebraska, was last night unanimously placed in nomination as the Democratic candidate for president of the L'nited States on a platform opposing imperialism, militarism and trusts, and specifically declaring for the free coinage of silver at the ratio of 10 to 1. The nomination came as the culmination of a frenzied demonstration in honor of the party leader, lasting 1~ minutes, and giving utterance to all the pent up emotions of th? vast multitude. It followed also u fierce struggle throughout the last 3tj hours concerning the platform declaration on silver and on the relative position which the silver question is to maintain to the other great issues of the day. It was lace iu the afternoon when the convention was at face to face with the presidential nomination. Earlier in the day there had been tedious delays, due to the inability of the plaiiorm committee to reconcile their differences and present a report. Until ibis was ready the convention managers beguiled the time by putting l";,.-.vai-J speakers of more or Ie=s proni- r-ionco to keep the vast audience from L r '-ciains too restless. 'i he f:rst session, beginning at 10 o'clock in ibe morning, was entirely ii-'iiiU-ss of results, and it was not until i .10 ia the afternoon, when the second r -r.ion hcd begun, that the platform t^r.-.r.-.-1' vas at last able to report :.: ;-j=.'-T--i i ment. Already its main ; -«c:.ri'.--.. embodying the 16 to 1 prin- '. :pSf. a.i'J become known to the dele- fc.u«. and there was little delay in rivirg it unanimous approval. This removed the last chance for an open rupture on questions of principle and left the way clear for the supreme event of the day--the nomination of the presidential candidate. The vast auditorium was filled to its utmost capacity whsn the moment arrived for the nomination to be made. Not only leader again, and every state and tcrri- ·vrere the usual facilities afforded by *"' tickets taxed to their utmost, but the doorkeepers were given liberal instructions., under which the aisles and areas and all available spaces were packed to their fullest limit. \Vhen the call of states began, for the purpose of placing candidates ia nomination, Alabama yielded its place at the head of the list to Xebraska, and Oldham, of that state, made his way to the platform for the initial speech placing Mr. Bryan in nomination for thti presidency. The orator was strong voiced and entertaining, yet to the waiting delegates and spectators there was but one point to his speech, and that was the stirring peroration which closed with the name of William Jea- WILLIAM JENNINGS BEYAN. --: T. ho in his j 1 car- i.-losod the . heart of Bruw.

Tfcbrnnkn Orator'a Beautiful Tribute to HI* Chief. There is no sreater honor reserved for a itizon Of these I.'nited States than to become the standard bearer of the Democratic party. Jt at once enrolls his nam« on th- scroll of the "immortals who are not bom to d!«;." and encircles him with a halo of the slory of all the illustrious achievements which that un- coniuereI ;iml unconquerable organization has rmMazoned on every pas:e ot our nation's history. It entrusts to his keeping the fame of that long Hr.e ot statesmen and patriots who have knelt for a blessins at Democracy's shrine. This high distinction must not be unworthily bestowed. It must follow as a reward for noble actions bravely done, for unreauitcd. tirelss toll, for sacrifices tory has Instructed its delegates convention to vote for him here. So it y only remains for Nebraska to pronounce the name that has been thundered forth from the foot of Bunker Hill and echoed back from Sierras' sunset slope, and that reverberates among the pine clad, snow capped hills of the north and rises up from the slumbering flower scented savannahs of the «nmh: and t h n t name Is the natne of William Jennings Bryan, her best lor^] son. The mention of Bryan's name the signal for the demonstration of the day, and i:* a common purpose the great concourse joined in a tribute of enthusiastic devotion to the party leader. A hoge oil portrait of Bryan, measuring 15 feet across, was brought down the main aisle before the delegates. At the same time the standards of the state delegations were torn from their sockets and waved on high, while umbrellas of red. white and blue, silk banners of the several states, and many handsome and unique transpar- encias were borne about the building amid the deafening clamor of 20.000 yelling, gesticulating men and -women. All of the intensity of former demonstrations, and much more, was added to this final tribute to the leader. XVben the demonstration had spent itself the speeches seconding the nomination of Mr. Bryan were in order. Senator White spoke for California, giving the tribute of the Pacific coast to the Nebraska candidate. When Colorado as hs took the platform he was accorded .1 splendid recaption, the entire audiPiicc rising and cheering wildly, w i t h the Mngle exception of the little group of Tammany leaders, who sat silent throughout the cheers for their New York associate. Mr. Hill wa.s in fine voice, and his tribute to the Nebraskan touched a sympathetic chord in the hearts of the audience. Hf pictured Bryan as the champion of the plain people and of the worklugnsaa. strong with the masses, with the farmer and with the artisan. When Hill declared v.-ith dramatic emphasis that the candidate would have the support of his party -- a united party-- there was tremendous applause at the suggestion of Democratic unityr"AsMe from the brilliant eulosry of Bryan, the speech of the New York leader was chiefly significant and attractive in its strong plea for unity. Mr. Hill's speech was in substance P.S follows: HII.I/.l I'LKA FOn I'MTV. The 'ew Yorker Oracefnljy AcrrptH the Vcrdli-t nt the Convention.

A t"nlt-l NVw York Dt-lcfcatlon Con 1*1 Ilirtntc \om!iint!oii. The most important develbpment in the vice presidential situation this morning is the announcement that when the roll of states is called today for the nomination of candidates for vice president Alabama will yield to Florida and Hon. R. D. McDonald, of that state, will place Eliot Danforth, of New York, in nomination. Another development was the unquestioned popularity of David B. Hilt for the place as manifested in the convention and the desire expressed in many quarters for his selection. The selection, however, is complicated by the fact that New York stands in the way of the selection of either Hill or Danforth. Hill docs not wautthe nomination and will take measures to prevent his selection. Danforth does want it. and would be nominated if New York would present him. But the convention will not force a candidate upon New York against the will of the delegation from that state. Meanwhile there has been a development of the Stevenson boom. It is. however, of a passive character, the belief -being general that he would make a safe candidate and that be is the only man who could beat Towne. The demand for a Democrat on the ticket is still strong, and Towne's candidacy is hampered by reason of JiJ.r .professed politics. Still the friends of Towr»i- a.e v;orU5ng very hard. si IJDKV TO v . · u:"«- aitt-:: C-.'OJP of La* :--:h frlc- .! ,; on'.- to the fall ;..-.; · ··: . ·-.!··· iiow.-ver. th'* com- i 1 .

July 6. -- News of the nomi- nati"n of \Villiam Jennings Bryan for pr-.sident did not arouse the tumult of enthusiasm that it did four years ago. when the convention at Chicago sim- ji^riy honored him. Conditions then and now are wholly dissimilar. His selection yesterday as bis party'? stiUjdard bearer has 1/f-en so ions; :"_:·_- tasted that anything short cf a unanimous call would have been a surprise. Added to this is the fact that about half of Lincoln's Democratic voting strength is in Kansas City. However. there were hearty congratulations showered upon the nominee. At the Bryan home there was no marked demonstration. Mr. Bryan was iwl'n'ng rtn . ?- '.cu^gc ::: tic parlor. with only the family present, when S?3*? Staator Talbot, in the telegraph room abov*. shouted: "Yon'fe renomi- nated. old man." Then Mr. Talbot came hurriedly down stairs and as Mr. Bryan reached for the bulletin he remarked. jokingly: -··TVibot. this is terribly sudden." Nearby neighbors called to extend congratulations and others used the telephone. Late last night Mr. Bryan reppared what he !s?.s said so inaaj times before, that he was unable to say whether or not he would go to Kansas City. r.-!ili-Ii t h i ··iii: - tltiitloii Is the form and l.'tti-r. \\v tl-olan- acain that nil Bovem- ni -nt.- Ins'ituic.l itRumK mi-n d'-rlve their }:.»t iiiiwiTj f i o m the consent of the KOV-n:i'.l. thai utij- uovvrtitiujnt not based ii)-in t!i" cur.seiit -f the Kuvornnl Is t y r a n n y . »il ti::it to impose on.any peo- !!·· a c-ivei'ij""!!! ·[ force is to substitute i!:' ni'-thi'l.i ·! for those ot ;·. r--;ii:MI.-. \v v holil t! the constitution fu!i*...t ilu- li.i^ .titi tiriiouuc*.* liiu tiuctrlnft fiuit an f\".

The Filipinos cannot be citizens without endangering our civilisation; they cannot ba subjects without imperiling our form ot government, and as we are not willing to surrender our civilization or to convert the republic Into an empire we favor an Immediate declaration of tho nation's purpose lo grlve to the Filipinos first «. stable form of government, second. Independence, and third, protection from outside Interference, such as has been given for nearly a century to the republics ot Central and South America. The greedy commercialism which dictated the Philippine policy of the Reput- licnn administration attempts to Justify It with th» plea that It will pay. but evea this sordid and unworthy plea falls when brr.uRht to the test ot facts. The war of criminal afiKression against the Filipino*, entailing an annual expense of many millions, has already cost more than any possible prolit that could accrue from th» entire Philippine trade for year? to come. Furthermore, when trade Is extended at the exp»:ise of liberty the price is always too high.
