Every point in General Sickles' speech was applauded vigorously. The mention of Senator Hill's name at its conclusion was the signal for round after round of applause. Mr. Sulser, from the committee on resolutions, presented the report of that committee which waa read by the secretary as follows: Tho IMntforin. The Democratic party of the state ot New York in convention assembled renews the pledge of its fidelity to the great cause of tariff reform, and to ihe whole Democratic faith and tradition, as affirmed in our national platforms from 18TO to lbfe'0, as well as iu our state platforms concurrent with the opening of Governor Tilden's brief, and the close of Governor Hill's long, thrice approved and alike illustrious service iu the chief magistracy of the Empire state. 1. Gold and silver the only legal tender; no currency inconvertible with coin. 2. Steady steps toward specie payments; no step backward. S. Honest payment of the public debt in coin; sacred preservation of the public faith. 4. Revenue reform, federal taxation for revenue only; no government partnership with protected monopolies. 5. Home rule to limit and localize most jealously the foreign powers intrusted to the public servants, municipal and federal; no centralization. (i. Equal and exact justice to all men; uo partial legislation, no partial taxation. 7. The presidency a public trust, uot a private perquisite: uo third term. «. Economy in the public expense that labor may be lightly burdened. We steadfastly adhere to the principles of a sound finance. We are against the coinage of any silver dollar which is not of the intrinsic value <»f every other dollar of the United States. 1 We, therefore, denounce the new Sher- Jaan silver law, under which one-tenth of our gold stock has been exported and all our silver output has been dammed up at borne, not only as a false pretense, but an actual hindrance pi the return to a free bi- uxetallie coinage and as tending only to one kiad o| monq- hones* mbnfty everywhere lit Itlgmitlzlttf the Sherman progressive sllvW basts law as no solution of the gold and silver question, and ns a fit Appendix to the subsidy and bounty swindle, tho McKinley worse- than-war tariff, tho Blainff reciprocity humbug, the* squandered surplus, the advancing deficit, the defective census and falsified representation and the revolutionary procedures of the billion dollar congress—all justly condemned by the peoples' great uprising last November, (1890), u verdict which renewed this year (1802) will empower Democratic statesmen to guide the people's councils and to execute the people's will. Alter reviewing the record of tlie Democratic party in New York the resolutions strongly urge Governor Hill as the next Democratic presidential candidate, expressing confidence in his ability to lead the party to victory.

St>eflc1io.< l»y folk, I'owdefly and jjon- •lly, Afo Ltatennt.t to by the ST. Louis, Mo., Feb. 22 — There were two noticeable features of the first day's session 'of the national conference of the Industrial Organizations. One was the vigor, determination and earnestness that characterized the delegates. The other was the enthusiasm that was evoked by every declaration to the fact that the industrial granger elements could no longer trust to the tender mercies of the two old parties, but that hereafter tin- watch-word must be "Burn the bridges." In its personnel the gathering was a decided improvement upon those held at Ocala, Cincinnati and Indianapolis within tho past eighteen months. It- was n sober, sensible and dignified assemblage. There were in tlie neighborhood of 2,500 men and women in the hall whf^n the chairman's gavel fell, and the gathering was called to order. Just how many of these are accredited delegates, cannot, however, be satisfactorily determined until the report of the committee on credentials is presented It was after 2 o'clock when Ben Terrell, of Texas, the national lecturer of the National Farmers' and Industrial .Alliance called the conference to order. In doing so he said that justice to all nnd special privileges to none should be their motto. Following the opening speech, the delegates were welcomed to the city at the end of the big bridge in a neatly turned address from C. P. Walbridge, president of the city council. Polk was called upon to make the first response and although pleading bad health lie delivered himself of a vigorous address. A sensational incident marked the appearance of Master "Workman Powderly, who was next introduced. He had proceeded well into his speech and was in the midst of a, stirring sentence, full of fire and spirit, when he suddenly turned pale, half reeled against the desk^and at the same time clapped his hand over Ids breast in the region of his heart. There waa a painful stillness for a moment, which was only broken by hia remarking: "I can't go on. I shall have to stop," bufc the audience, few of whom were acquainted with tho fact that the labor leader is a great sufferer from heart affection, would nob have it so, and there was a great shout of "Don't give up; go on, try again." "Yes, I will try again," ejaculated Powder ly, and nerving himself by a great, effort, he rt sumed his address. Ignatius Donnelly, who waa the last speaker, made a characteristic address. By this time the convention had had enough of speeches and it manifested n desire to get down to more important business. Marion Cannon, of California, was chosen temporary chairman, and J. W. Hayes, of Pennsylvania, a one- armed labprite, and John B. Stell, of Illinois, n one-le"gged granger, were elected secretaries. After some debate regarding proceedings, it was decided that the various organizations should appoint their own members of the committee on credentials and a recess was taken for consultation. Upon reassembling the 'committee was announced and at (5 o'clock the convention adjouwied until morning. CHILDREN CREMATED. Threo nianibera of n Michigan Family llurucd in Their Dwelling.
