Figure* Showing Prospect* Admitted Cor rect bjr the Opposition—Abolition of th Two-thirds Rule tho First Move to B Made. CHICAGO, June 8.—The two-thirds rule, heretofore governing nominations will be abolished by the silver majority in the Democratic national convention This is the positive prediction of W. J, Bryan, the choice of Nebraska silver Democrats for president. Mr. Bryan himself favors the abolition of the time honored rule, and he says that there is no question of its being wiped out. He bases his prediction on the assumption that the silver men will control the convention. As a matter of fact, what is assumed by the Nebraska leader on this point is practically admitted by the gold leaders. Chairman Harrity and his colleagues of the sub-committee of the Democratic national committee—all gold men— came to town during the morning. In CONGRESSMAN BR7AN. the afternoon they prepared an estimate of how the oonventian will stand on the money question. They gave the silver men 427 delegates, the gold men 887, and put 92 in the doubtful column. Messrs. Harrity, Sherley and Wallace were the committeemen present during the figuring. Will Abolish the Two-thirds Rule. "The two-thirds rule ought to be abolished and it will bo abolished," said Mr. Bryan while waiting in the Unity building for an interview with Governor Altgeld, "A few weeks ago I could not have talked so positively on this point for the reason that the certainty of our controlling tho national convention had not materialized. Now, however, as the struggle 'for keeping us from having a majority of the delegates has been given up by the gold men, I can speak more confidently. There is no doubt in the world that the silver delegates will have sense enough to abolish the rule. "Have we hopes of winning? Yes, sir ; positively we have. The Republicans may straddle at St. Louis, as it is said they will, but a straddle will not deceive the silver Republicans who are sound on the money question." NORTH DAKOTA DEMOCRATS. They Declare for Free Silver and Senator Itoacli. JAMESTOWN, N. D., June o. —The Democratic state convention selected tho following delegates to the Chicago convention and instructed them to vote for a plank for the free coinage of both gold and silver at 16 to 1 and use their influence to secure a silver candidate: Hon. W. N. Roach, Grand Forks ; James Holt, Burleigh county ; H. R,. Hartmau, Cass county; J. B. Eaton, Ramsey county; F. A. Wilson, Pembina county, and J. G. Williams, Grand Forks county. The resolutions adopted indorse the Wilson bill and tho efforts of the party in securing reduced taxation ; favor an amendment to the federal constitution giving con gross the power to tax incomes of corporations and individuals ; favor a constitutional amendment providing for the election of United States senators by a direct vote, and demand legislation to advance tho interest of the laboring nuin and protection against the oppression of trusts. The following resolr.ncn was also passed: Wo heartily endorse the action of Hoim- tor Willimn Roach on all iiiiittrr- hi-forc congress, especially his wise.

N, Va., Jane 5.—The money plank of the Virginia Democratic platform is as follows: We are for sound money. Tho soundest that the world hits ever had or can have. This sound money should consist of silver and gold, and of paper redeemable in silver or gold at ths option of the payer. The immediate and complete restoration of the bimetallic system of money which existed in the United States from 1?<J3 to 1873 is In our opinion demanded by the interests of commerce, manufactures uiut agriculture, which an; alike suffering from the continuous fall of prices and the consequent embarrassment) or bankruptcy of those engaged therein And, in order to so restore it. we demand the free and unlimited coinage of both silver and gold at the 16 tot ratio without waiting for the assent or sonsurrence Df any other nation. THEY A'ANT BLACKBURN Kentucky Democrats to Nuine Him For the Vresldeucy *t Chleugo. LEXINGTON, Ky., June 4.—The drift of the Democratic state convention was for Senator Blackburn for president and General P. Wat Hardin, the defeated candidate for governor, his successor in the senate. The convention is 10 to 1 for the 16 to 1 ratio. It wus thought before the districts met that the gold standard inen would get several representativ* out of the districts, but the Loui$» - ille district is the only one out of the 11 that the gold men controlled.

SAII FRANCISCO, Jtine 9.-4lobert Porter, well knowit, as United States superintendent of the last eeiMtiSj re turned ffom Japan on the Peru, Mr Porter has been in Japan since Mftfch 4 He studied the industrial and manuiac turing condition of the empire. He re turns with decided ideas that the cottn try is fully awake to the need of the times and that it will prove a strong competitor of Western natioiu. Saic he: I am satisfied, after looking over the Industrial situation, that Japan has taken its position with the great civil teed nations of the earth, and has be come an important factor in the com merce of the world. During my stay in Japan I think I visited more than 200 mills, factories and shops, covering every important industry. There are fully 1,000,000 weavers returned in the census, 960,000 females. This tremendous force oi weavers has enabled Japan not only to supply nearly all her own wants, bul swell her exports of textiles from $561,990 in 1885 to $22,177,626 in 1895, an increase of more than fortyfold. Fifteen Cents High Wages. In the investigation of the silk industry, I spent some time where I found the current wages for female weavers from 8 to 4 cents per day, for young girls, to 10 and 15 cents for expert weavers. I also paid particular attention to cotton spinning and weaving. I see no reason why the exports of cotton to India and China will not reach $60,000,000 before another lecade. The total value of the textile industry of Japan may reach nearly $ioO,000,000 this year. Some of the other industries were the rug makers of the country, where I found children of 7 and 8, working for cent a day, and 4 to 6 cents a day were current wages for a day of 12 to 14 hours. In some of the manufacturing regions, the schools had been depopulated to one-third of their former number, that there might be a supply of children to make matting. The wonder'to me is that Japan has become so important a manufacturer without becoming a purchasing country." HONORED HER HEROES. Pennsylvania Unveils Statues of Generals Meade and Hancock. GETTYSBURG, Pa., Juno G.—An immense crowd of veterans of the late war and others gathered on the battlefield here to witness the unveiling of ;he splendid equestrian statues erected by the state of Pennsylvania, in memory of the Generals George G.

Honored by President Dole and the Ha- wuiiiui Cabinet. HONOLULU, May 28.—(Per Steamship Alameda.)—The funeral of Kate Field, who died here ou the 10th inst., took place the day following. The body was embalmed and placed in a temporary vault. Final disposition of the remains will depend entirely upon news which ionsul General Mills receives from tho United States. About the time she was preparing for her visit to the islands, a coast paper published a statement to the effect that Miss Field had said she was goinir to Hawaii and might die there; if she did she wanted her remains taken back to the United States and buviod by tho side of John Brown, at North Elba, N. Y The funeral was attended by President Dole, the members of rlu- cabinet and a large number oi hmrtin?.' citizens. AFTER THE BIG DOGS. Krngpr'8 C'liaraeteristii! Slniilo in fteply to Thanks of Kcf LONDON, June 0.— A dispatch to The Times from Cape Town says that President Kruger, replying to the thanks of the released reformers, made a characteristic simile, saying : "If my little dogs are naughty, I must whip them ; but I am always sorry to do so The next time I must get hold of a big dog The little dogs bark, but the big ones bite."
