There was quite a. large attendance, abundantly significant of the growth of the pa-rty, since its inception in ISO!), when it cost barely 7,000 votes, down to the last presidential campaign, when the total cast was nearly 280,000, and the prohibitionists seemed, as they claim, to hold the balance of power in ]3 or 14 states. Mr. K. L. C'iKt.li', chairman of the committee en rerepiijn, in his address of welcome, said, that he welcomed the convention "as the representatives of an army of 300,000 of the most loyal and single-hearted patriots, suid o£ 600,000 of as devoted and consecrated women as ever gathered under any banner or made warfare against any ci.-emy." Mr.Sa.iyiuel Dickie, of Michigan, chairman of the nntion.il conmiiuec, responded to the address of welcome. Ladius ill Attendance, There were m:my ladies wearing the blue and white badges of delegates to the convention, and a nomlvr of colored representatives in the front row. The gallery in the rear of the hall was well-filled, but the earlier part of ihe proceedings, at ii;ast, were character- i/.ed more by the decorous air of a religions gathering-than tjie feverish ex- citen.enl. of a political convention., jSiir:mv mill Jlroud Causers c;i:iHli. Kight at the opening of the formal proceedings, when Mr. Dickie, t--!ie chairman 'of the national convention, ;.resented t.lie nan.e of Mr. A.' A. Stevens, of Tyrone, V:i., as temporary chairman, the rebcl'.ion of the free silver minority broke out. .Mr. Chnu!;c«y W. IJnnn, of California, rose to a ]>oint of order and asked Mr. Dickie tn rule upon it. 'lie offered as a substitute a minority report, substituting the name of Kdward J. Wheeler at temporary chairman in place of Mr. Stevens. A lively scene ensued in which the chairman persistently refused to "Bn.- tertain a.ny motion or appeal of the minority. Then thei-band was. called upon'to drown the uproar and to give the chairman time to recover his wind and his composure, both. considerably disturbed. Meanwhile; hulf the convention was walking the floor and a squa<l of policemen were ushered into thehnll to keep order. Mr. Wheeler, of Xew York, the gentleman named in the minority report as temporary chairman, rose,and, for the sake of harmony, withdrew his name, although protesting against what he called an arbitrary and unjust rule. Slovens Permitted to Sjicnk. Then, at last, Temporary Chairman Stevens was permitted to deliver his opening address. Mr. Stevens, !n Ms opening address, grave an interesting historical sketcli of the reign of the part}', and tlicn proceeded to the discussion of national issues. Ho said never Jn their history h.'ul t j .ie d^minp.nt political parties been so much at yea as ftt ihe present time. Unless all signs failed, .the republican party would present the tariff a3 the paramount Issue. The democratic party, I;e believed, would _ declare for "sound money," as interpreted by President Cleveland, -while the populists would come In at the end and make free silver coinage at sixteen to one their 'Jominant Issue. Plcii for One flunk Fluttorm. Mr. Stevens continued: "If my prognostications of tfce politics of our country during this year be correct, each party will have its o\vp. Issue to maintain without entering into antagonisms that have existed In the past In political contests. It In therefore important that we should make "no mistakes, avoid extremes In con- londfne for Questions that the prohibition party was never born to settle so long as tho drlnlc trafllc remnlnod legalized by the government. On this question we are agreed. It was tills question that led us to sever political ties that were as dear to us as life itself, that we m.'glit unite together In a political party to exterminate tlie ]eg,ill;:ecl drink tralllc, We E.11 have our opinions on other political questions, such as lurift, free-trade, free silver, sound money, etc.. etc., and our opinions arc by no m'caiis u unit. Such issues are to us as u party divisive ones, and we should avoid anything that will divide our ranks, divert our attention from the great purposes' for which-we are organized, and cause'a halt Jn the advance we have been and nre making for political power and control.
