Holit DKS MOINEB, August 17.—Chairman Townsend, of the democratic state central committee, called the state convention to order in the Auditorium yesterday at 10:30. After prayer by Rev. J. A. Wirt, Hon. Cato Sells was introduced HS temporary chairman. He said in part: "Just what the democratic national platform of 1900 will eontaln 1 do not know, but I firmly believe that it will be along the lines of tho last platform, with such an Indictment of the McKinley regime for its mal-admlnlstration, class preferment, and unconstitutional conduct ns to Insure the support of every citizen who has been, is, or wants to be a Jeffersonlan democrat. And I sincerely hope that no democratic convention will subject Itself to the 'round Robin' charge of censorship, but that all will be respected in the expression of, ami contention for, an honest conviction, find that when the national convention has again spoken the will of the majority will be acquiesced in by a reunited ir.l irresistible democratic party, and thus make contain the supremacy and consequent prosperity of the liberty loving, law ab'.dl'.i?, home building and industrious masses ove, the now favored classes who, for selfish purposes, advocate or tolerate tho prostitution of the executive, legislative powers of the government, the federal constitution, Monroe doctrine and declaration of Independence. "Bimetallism Is as much a fundamental principle of democracy as equality of rights, and this convention would betray the party should it fail to declare for the reinstatement of silver to Its legitimate place in the nation's monetary system. "But the McKinley administration has developed conditions which were they to become operative would forever overthrow all democratic principles and make of it but little Importance what kind ot monetary system prevails in the country. The very fact that the republicans are determined, if possible, to smother the question of protection, trusts, imperial colonization, militarism, foreign alliance and kindred issues, is a sufficient reason why the democracy should not permit them to hide these burning questions. Our republican friends will have ample opportunity with the cry of 'cheap money 1 and 'debauched currency' to attempt to make silver a 'bogy man, 1 but they will never be able again to deceive the people as they did in 189B. They are 'up to' other Issues as well as the money question, and will have to meet and answer them on every stump in Iowa, and the more they try to avoid, dodge or duck the more aggressive will democracy drive such issues home and push them to the'front. They have made the new issues, are responsible for them, and must meet them squarely, or desert the field and take the consequences. "We have reached a crisis in our national life. The declaration of Independence, federal constitution and Monroe doctrine are being devoured by vicious cannibals The money trust, Industrial trust and patriotic trust have masked In the falsa garb 'destiny' lor a desperate attack. "The state and national campaigns upon which we are about to enter will bo the turning point for the republic and Its people. The armies are forming In battle array. The call for enlistment has b'eeu made. It Is not what you have been but what you are now that puts your name on the muster roll. Loyalty to the cause for which we fight is the only requirement. "Our commander Is democracy's greatest leader—the able, fearless and Incorruptible champion of equal rights and human liberty—the modern Thomas Jefferson- William Jennings Bryan." On motion, the roll of districts was called and members of the committee on resolutions and the state central committee were announced as follows: RESOLUTIONS. First district—P. Henry Smyth, Des Moines county. Second district—M. J. Wade, Iowa county. Third district—J. S. Murphy, Dubuque county. Fourth district—P. F. McHugh, Howard county. Fifth district—John Baum, Benton county. Sixth district—E. C. French, Wape'.lo county. Seventh district—Charles O'Donnell, Polk county. Eighth district—E. J. Sankey, Decatur county. Ninth district—J. M. Emmert, Cass county. Tenth distrlct-J. W. Hlnchon, Kossuth county. Eleventh district—A. Van Wagenen, Woodbury county. STATE CENTRAL, COMMITTEE. Firs* district—W. L. Throop, Henry county. Second district—C. G. Hipwell, Scott county. Third district—E. M. Carr, Delaware county. Fourth district—G, Holmes, Cerro Gordo county. Fifth district—A. E. Jackson, Tama county. Sixth district—S. F. McConnell, Davie county. Seventh district—George Huffman, Polk, county. Eighth district—W. R. Hart, Ringgold county. Ninth district—E. H. Bickford, Mills county. Tenth district—J. B, Romans, Crawford county. Eleventh district—Thomaa Ward, Plymouth county. The convention then took the usual noon recess. At the afternoon session, Judge T. L. Maxwell, of Des Moines, was installed as permanent chairman, the rest of the temporary organization being made permanent. Judge Maxwell spoke briefly, mainly against imperialism. The convention seemed to be determined to wait for the report of the committee on resolutions before proceeding 1 with the nominations, but finally became tired of waiting and proceeded to the nomination of a candidate for governor. L. T. Genung nominated Fred E. White. E. A. Graham, of Newton, nominated Cato Sells. Mr. Sells denied that he was a candidate and seconded tfie nomination pf Mr. White. 8. fl. Bashor, who had withdrawn from the contest, also seconded the nomination of Mr. White. Jas. K. Burgess, of Ottnmwa, seconded the nomination of Mr. Sells. J3x-mayor Craig, of Keokuk, nominated Mr. Paugherty, of Keokuk. J. G. Redmond, of Oskaloosn, nominated Anthony 0. Daly, of Marshall town. O. J. Laylander, of Cedar Falls, nominated S. H, Bashor. The convention then proceeded to an informal ballot, which resulted as follpws: White Bells ...103 Bashor S4}» Daly 30 Daugherty 103 Genung 13 Mr. Bashor announced that Mr. Sells, Vtr. Genung and himself had conferred, and he moved that the informal bal- ot be made formal nnd that Mr. White ae made the nominee by acclamation. The motion carried. Mr. White was palled for and brief- .y thanked the convention for the "lonor conferred upon him, and urged /he democracy of Iowa to stand by :itm and win a great victory. _Judge A. Van Wagenen, of Sioux ity, chairman of the resolutions committee, was recognized, to present the platform. It was listened to with great interest and close attention, and frequently cheered, and at the close of the meeting was unanimously adopted by acclamation. The platform: We, the democrats of Iowa, In convention assembled, unqualifiedly and unreservedly endorse the Chicago platform of 1896 in whole and In detail and declare our unwavering fidelity and adherence to the isame, and we proclaim our admiration for and loyalty to that peerless exponent of democratic principles, W. J. Bryan and "favor his nomination in 1900. Second. We rejoice in the exalted sentiment and motive that prompted the government of the United States to take up guarded legislation. Just and fAir and In fl the interests of true temperance. ' Sixth. We condemn the administration of Leslie M. Shaw and the republican party for weakness and inefficiency and for subservience to the monled and corporate interests as opposed to the interests of the •people. To the support of the foregoing principles we cordially invite the active co-operation of all lovers of liberty and equality. By an additional resolution, the state central committee was empowered to fill any vacancy that might occur on the state ticket. For lieutenant-governor M. L. Bevis, of Mt. Ayr, Ed. .1. Stnhl, of Mi, Pleasant, and Clias. C. Chubb, of Kossuth county, were placed in nomination. Before a ballot had been taken E. B. EVans, of DesMoines,moved that nomination for railroad commissioner b^ referred to the populist convention. This motion was laid on the table. Wild disorder prevailed for a while, but the chair finally announced that the motion was made through a misunderstanding, as the populists had not e.sked for any sxich concession. The roll call resulted in the nomination of M. L. Bevls, with the following vote: Bevis 614 Stahl 308 Chubb 105 For judge of the •supreme court A. Van Wagenen, of Sionx City, was nominated by acclamation. For railroad commissioner, W. H. Calhoun, of Marshalltown. F. D. Bayless, of Elkadcr, and II. E Wills, ol Clinton county, were placed in nomination, the roll call resulting in the nomination of Calhoun, by the following vote:. Calhoun 889 Wills •. 198 Bay less 81 After a number of .changes to Calhoun, the nomination was madq unanimous. For (Superintendent of public instruction, P.

WHITE, Nominated for Governor of Iowa. arms In defense of the bitterly oppressad people of Cuba In the successful termination with the war with Spain and in patriotism and unsurpassed bravery dl.-- by our soldiers and sailors on land and sea. The war for the liberation of the tyranny-cursed Island was worthy the greatest republic and the most civilisation that has flourished in the tides of time, but for the same reason that we glory In the successful war against Spain, we deprecate and condemn the war against the Filipinos. One war was for the emancipation of the people; the other for the subjugation of the people, and if the war against Spain was right, and it was, that against the natives of the Philippines, who have committed no offense save to love liberty and to be willing to light and to die for It, is wrong. The attempt unauthorized by congress,' to conquer the natives of the Oriental islands is a repudiation of the American doctrine of consent affirmed In the Declaration of Independence and in conflict with the principle which George Washington and his fellow patriots of the revolution made sacrifices to establish. We also condemn the war against the Filipinos, believing it to have been inspired by Great Britain for the purpose of producing conditions that will force an Anglo-American alliance, and we not only protest against the war and demand its termination by extension to the Filipinos of the same assurance given to the Cubans, but we record our deep seated antagonism to an alliance with Great Britain or any other European power, and express our detestation of the attempts made In British Interests to disrupt the friendly relations , which have uniformly obtained between the United States and Gerrnanv. We oppose conquests of the Phl'.ipplnes.because Imper'al- Ism means militarism, because militarism means government by force, and because government by force means the death of government by consent, the destruction of political and Industrial freedom, and the obliteration of equality of rights and the assassination of democratic institutions. Third. We view with alarm the multiplication of those combinations of capital commonly known as trusts that are concentrating and monopolizing Industry, crushing out independent producers of, limited means, destroying competition, restricting the opportunities for labor, artificially limiting production and raising prices, and creating an industrial condition different from state socialism only in the respect that under socialism, the benefits of production would go to all, while under the trust system, they go to Increase the fortunes of the Jew, These trusts and combines are the direct outgrowth of the policy of the republican party, which has not only favored thess institutions, but has accepted their support and solicited their contributions to aid that party In retaining power, which has placed the burden pf taxation upon tjiose who labor and produce in times of peace and who right our battles In time of war, while the wealth of the country is exempted from these burdens. We condemn this policy, and It is our solemn conviction that the trusts must be destroyed or they will destroy free government, and we demand that they be suppressed by repeal of the protective tariff and other privilege conferring legislation responsible for them, by the enactment of such legislation, state and national, as will aid In their destruction. Fourth. We condemn the present system of letting convict labor by contract to private persons or corporations as now In vogue iii the state of Iowa, and recommend that the same be abolished and that convict labor be employed solely and only in such work as will not bring it into competition with free laoor. Fifth. We urge that the legislation of the State carefully consider the existing liquor laws with a view of eliminating the objectionable features of the mulct law other candidates he was named bj acclamation. The convention then adjourned sine die. STATE CKNTRAT, COMMITTKK. The new central committee met a the Savery last evening and organized Geo. A. Huffman, of Des Moines, wa chosen chairman, A. D.

Patient— No, " I have not; but I've taken a medicine. Luther said t))ut i| strong at 20 at 40 ijn.d, be Chicago, Aug. 21.—The Record pub- ishes the following: Washington, Aug. 19.—Major-Gen. Nelson A. Miles, commanding-general of the army, is going to the Philippines. He will start the latter part of October. He will not take command of the forces in the field, nor will he supersede Gen. Otis. He will, however, act in his capacity of general of :he army and will have a supervision over field operations. He will direct the assignment of the different regiments and participate In mapping out plans of campaigns. He will reach the Philippines about the close of the rainy season and may remain until peace la restored. This statement is made upon excellent authority, Recruiting for the additional volunteers just authorized will not be actively entered upon until Monday, the recruits enlisted this week being used to fill the regiments enlisting In the Philippines and to replace the men being discharged from the volunteer regiments already organized. The recruiting returns for yesterday received at the war department show that there Is a surplus of 1,339 men, or just about enough to fill the three regiments In the Philippines to their maximum strength. TO RUSH MANILA REINFORCEMENTS Secretary Root Arranging for Their Bpeody Departure. Washington, Aug. 21.—Secretary Root is busily engaged In selecting officers to fill the new regiments, going over the lists of names that have been submitted with recommendation for appointment, and considering their efficiency during the Spanish war. The secretary is giving the matter of these selections his personal attention and the list is being prepared In his private office. After the selections are made by the secretary they will bo sent to the president for his approval. Preparations continue actively In the matter of arranging for the speedy transportation of the troops to the Philippines. The quartermaster's department has been considering the advisability of chartering more transports on the Pacific coast. Already the ships chartered make it possible to send nearly all of the organizations now formed by Sept. 25, instead of two- weeks later, which was the schedule first shown to Secretary Root. The transports Logan and Thomas are now being fitted up on the Atlantic coast and it is expected they will be ready to sail by the middle of October nd will take three regiments via the Suez canal. At the latest'calculation it is now believed to be possible to land all the new regiments in the Philippines by the 1st of December, or very soon after that date. Seven of the lieutenant colonels named are now serving in the Philippines. They will remain there and await the arrival of their regiments. While It may not be necessary to use all the troops In the Philippines, it is understood to be the plan of Secretary Root to have a sufficient force not only to defeat the insurgents at every point, but to garrison and hold the places that; may be taken, and thus Insure a safe line of communication, Expects a Special Session. Cleveland, Ohio, Aug. 21.—Congressman A. S. Berry of Newport, Ky., in an interview here, stated that he believed President McKinley would call a special session of congress in October to submit the Philippine question to that body. Congressman Berry also predicted that anti-expansion would be the watchword of the democratic party in the presidential campaign, that the Chicago platform would be indorsed, but that the money question will be ignored to a great extent, "Kid" McCoy Easily Knocked Out. Chicago, Aug. 21.—"Kid" McCoy was knocked out in less than naif a round Friday night by Jack McCormick, a comparatively unknown fighter, who hails from Philadelphia. The blow th»t did the business was a heavy right- hand swing that landed fairly oa the point of the chin. McCoy fell at full length on his back and was counted out. He was unconscious about twenty seconds and it was some tjme before he had a good idea of what bad happened. New Tliread Cornpr«Wpi»! London, Aug. 19.—It is said that an.
