Since Monday there has been a bitter Sttife between the two opposing elements 01 the patty-one contending for a tidtet mid plat' or m on a "sound money oasis, the other clamoring for free coinage without waiting for an i^ 6 ™?" 0 ^ agreement. From start to finishL the white metal contingent did neatly all the talking, on the street, in hotel lob* hies, at various headquarters, in committee rooms, cancnssea and finally on the floor of the convention. By an apparently fortuitous incident the silver men "had a fine chance to esprit their views in convention hall during the afternoon, from the fact that the resolutions committee Got Itito n Wtiuig'e on the financial plank that kept them 111 the committee room till nearly 4 o'clock, the currency resolution being overhauled and reconstructed two or three times before an agreement was reached, and the majority making persistent, effort to avert the introduction of the minority report. During this interval the convention did nothing but listen to free gilver speeches by- radical white metal champions.

BEST, •i of THE NEW OF /FEMALE DISEASESV lonzed silver discussion was precipitated and for awhile the proceedings were tumultuous. The final roll call on tho resolutions showed the white metal men defeated by a vote of to 420^. A large number of free sil ver delegates immediately left the hall, not waiting for the nominations. Bnbb Named for Governor. The state ticket was then nominated as follows: For governor, Judge W. I. Babb, Mount Pleasant. Lieutenant governor. S. L. Bestow, Chariton. . Superintendent of public instruction, Lyman B. Parshall, Maquoketa. Railroad commissioner, Colonel George James, Dubuque. Supreme judge, Senator Thomas Harper, Des Moinea. Jud"e Babb made a brief speech ot acceptance, in which he said he only accepted because of repeated urging and his devotion to the party and its interests in the state in which he was born and raised. It is understood that Bestow will not accept the lieutenant governorship nomination. He is a strong free coin age man. Favors "Sound Money. The financial plank of the platform is as follows: ., "We hold to the use of both gold and.sil- ver as the standard money of the country and to coin both gold and silver without discrimination against either metal or charge for mintage; but the dollar unit of coinage of both metals must be of equal intrinsic and exchangeable value, or be adjusted by international agreement or by such safeguards of legislation as shall insure the maintenance of the parity of the two metals and the equal power of every dollar at all times in the payment of debts and we demand that the paper currency shall be kept at par with and redeemable in such coin. We insist upon this policy as especially necessary for the protection of farmers and laboring classes, the first and most defenseless victims ot unstable money and fluctuating currency. The platform condemns .the mulct law at present in force in Iowa and favors a high license law. SILVERITES WIN, Mow We Scorn Titles. "No wo don't go much on titles in this country," said the American proudly. "Wclottvo all that foolishness to you people across tho water. Wo don't care for them over hero. As Judge Muldoon once said"— "Who is he?" asked tho Englishman. "Why, he's a lawyer. You see he' — Of what court is he a judge?" "None just now, but I think ho wa3 a justice of 'tho peace 10 or 15 years ago. But, as I was about to say, he was talking to Colonel Alleuson when"— "In tho army, I suppose," interrupted tho Englishman. "Not exactly. I believe he was on the staff of tho chief marshal in a Fourth of July parade once or twice, but that lias nothing to do with the story. Ho and the judge wore talking, when Captain Bll- burger camo up." "Militia captain?" "No; oh, no. He was captain of our precinct Democratic marching club a few years ago Well, he recalled a remark made by Governor Gulliver a short time before, and"— "Governor of what state? "Hang it all! What's the matter with you? He's not governor of-any state now. Ho was a lieutenant governor some time in tho seventies, and one of those bluff old fellows who hate all foolishness. He made a speech on tho absurdity of titles once, and when the captain recalled it tho judge exclaimed, 'Thank heaven, wo have no titled aristocracy here!' And I agree with him Wo don't think much of titles. 'No " said tho Englishman thoughtfully. "You appear to be very free with ,thom."—Chicago Post.' I can't, u-.ul, Uigut last.

PBBTLB SPRINGS, Mo., Aug. 7-Free silver has conquered in Missouri, as it did iu Illinois, and the fears expressed that there would be strife and turmoil in the convention were not borne out by facts. The so-called gold or sound money adherents were so overwhelmed by the superior generalship and numerical strength of the free silver leaders and forces that they made but a very faint effort to stay the onslaught' of the white metal adherents, Mr, Bland said, in opening the convention, that the Democrats of Missouri had assembled to adopt resolutions for the Free Coinage of Silver, to select a state committee which wa? in sympathy with tfce popular will, ana how well the prophecy WAS carried out the result of ttw cpnvenfcon tells.

A hotel clerk told this story: Three men from the country camo into tho hotel and registered for lodging, and a few minutes later two of them wont out to see the town. "I will stay here," said the third, "and look at things, "and he took a seat near the door. At 10 o'clock, a half hour later, the man who was left went up to tho clerk. "I want to remain," said ho. "All right, sir," answered the clerk. Tho man stood and looked at the clerk and finally wont back to his chair near the door. , ' Ho sat still another hour and returned to the desk, "If you please, I'll remain, he said., ;..'• "That's all right, sir," was the response. •'We hope you'll bo with us some time. Tho man hesitated and went back to his ° It was away after midnight when he went up to tho clerk for the third time. ''I think I' 11 remain,' sir,'' ho said. ': "Wo have no objections," answered the man behind the desk. _ The guest did not go back to his chair, however, but stood still. Shortly afterward another guest came up and asked the clerk for his key, "and I'll retire"— "Retire! Retire! That's tho word I've been trying to think of for three hours.

What did it matter to one of all that throng H she hungered for sympathy and companionship? How much alone and how lonely she felt! , , A little farther down a young man stood and he gazed, not at tho boats, nor at the water, but at the girl who seemed so for °"It looks like her," he murmured. "Older and whiter and thinner, yet sc much like her—as she might have looked after sickness." ' ' He came closer, and tho girl turned about, facing him. "John!" "Kitty!" - t • , It seemed a lame greeting. They clasped hands. Each looked at the other, thinking of tho day they parted beneath the trees, uncertain as to how their friendship should be renewed. "Have you been sick, Kitty? "No; do I look dilapidated?" "You look pale," ho said gravely. "Has the city treated you unkindly?''. "It has given mo my fortune, John. "I am glad to hear it, glad Indeed." "Yes," she said, with a nervous little laugh, "look at this dross, John, and at this last year's hat and at these shabby boots. They tell the story I might be only too glad to conceal." "Why, I thought you wore in the very height of tho stylo," ho exclaimed. "I am sure I never saw you so handsome. There was a look of glad pleasure in her eyes at this praise, but she shook her head. "I'm a failure in this big town, John. And that's tho fortune I found." '' Mine is no better. I have boon hero a vear now, and my career has proved the truth of your prediction. When you refused me that time, Kitty, you were a fortunate girl." , "Do I look fortunate, John?" she asked S ° "You look like an angel," he said and looked as if ho believed it. "But you, you," and with critical gayety she surveyed him from head to foot, "you are well dressed, sir. You have a watch and a diamond and patent leather shoes. Why, John, I declare, you are a regular swell!" *<I get US a, week," ho said, laughing. "Think of it, and I only get $5, Twelve dollars a. week! Why, John, I tell you that's riches."
