'WASJUNOTON, August 10.—In tho event of a war between Russia and Japan the United States may find itself an unwilling participant unless the Japanese retreat from a position which they assumed to^vard the United States during the progress of the last war with China. The issue arose through the assertion by the Japanese authorities of the right of search of American vessels. They insisted that they had' the right to board an American vessel and if they chose to take frdm her any Chinese or any enemy they might find, even though they were but passengers. Although warned: by Minister Denby against such a course, the matter progressed to that perilous state that when Admiral Carpenter was about to escort an American merchant steamship out of a' Japanese port to prevent her deten- the Japanese,.the latter,' it :is said, gave orders to the shore batteries at the mouth of the harbor to fire upon the American naval vessel if they attempted to do so.

A motion to substitute the minority for the majority report resulted in defeat for the silver men, 051 19-21 to 4201-7. The platform as follows was then adopted: The democratic party of Iowa, in convention assembled, leafflrms the national Elatform of cbe party adopted at Chicago i 1892, and points with satisfaction to the evidences of the wisdom of that convention, in the results accomplished according to its promises, to the evidences ot returning prosperity, the restoration of wages and the re-establishineut of industry upon a prosperous basis, conditions which have extorted congratulations even from the republicans of Iowa. W,e declare the rescue of the finances of the country from tho baleful effects of the Sherman law, the repeal of the un-American federal election law, . and the uprooting of McKinleyism, to he worthy of the history and 'prestige of the great democratic party, and of a courageous democratic administration. We reaffirm ,t.he.,(oUo wing portion of the seventh plank ot the last national democratic platform: "We hold to the use of both gold and.sil- ver as the., standard money of the country and to the coinage of both gold and silver without discrimination against either metal or charge for mintage; but the dollar unit of coinnge of both metals must be of. equal intrinsic and exchangeable value, or be adjusted by International agreement or by such safeguards or'legislation as shall insure the maintenance of the parity of the two metals and the equal power of any dol- , lar at all times m the market and in the .payment.of. debts; and we" demand that all paper currency shall be kept at par with , and redeemable in such coin. We insist upon upon this policy as especially necessary for the protection of the farmers and laboring classes, the first and most de- tenseless,victims of unstable money and a fluctuating currency." • We condemn the cowardice and trickery of the republican party in Iowa in failing- to meet in its last state platform any of the issues, important and vital to the interests of our state, and ask upon it the soter judgment of an intelligent people. We our state institutions be gpverned by a single non-partisan board of control which can intelligently comprehend their relative wants and economically and justly apportion among the whole that which their jusl requirements demand. That we favor the speedy completion of the Henuepin canal and the deepening of v the waterways from ^he great lakes to the ocean, BO as to enable ocean vessels to pas* through. i ' We favor the election of United States senators by direct vote of the people. We favor just and liberal pensions to all deserving veterans. We reiterate our unflinching opposition to monopolies and trusts and cf.ll for enactments -which will abolish combines ot all kinds. We believe the mulct law foils to meet the requirements of a good excise statute, It is unfair as between communities, an immense hardship upon property owners and it compromises the honor of the staw, in declaring the sale of liquors a crjipeana condoning the offense for a money consideration, We repeat our demand of tue- past Hyo years for a local option hl B" license low, and on behalf of the commercial interests of the state we favor a law permitting the manufacture o£ lujuor within tms Ktato, thus affording for tht» products of the farm the labor of our people and saving to our own people enormous sums which are now being expended m other states.
