Many candidates for the "Sound Money" Democratic FronSc^ntlnl Nomination. Indianapolis, Ind,, Aug. 29.—Complications have arisen which ranke thu outlook..for a presidential nominee on' the gold democratic ticket appear in a. most interesting light, and it now Eecms'that there-will be quite a contest in the convention next week. Some of the most distinguished and influential democrats in the country are said to be very- earnest, in. their efforts to nominate Senator Vilas, oi Wisconsin.- But Wisconsin has indorsed Gen. Brafi-gv This, however, it has been learned was due to the efforts of Senator Vilas himself, who has remained in the background to a large extent all through this contest. Henry Wattcrson bus been' indorsed by .Michigan and Ne-' brasUa, but his-own state has spoken plainly in favor of Gen, Buckner for the second place on the ticket, Missouri has indorsed Broadhead, though that' is said to have been a mere personal compliment. Netv York seems to be leaning- toward Watterson. It is believed thr.t Indiana will support Vilas. He ' has 1 •well earned the support rfcat he is pet-' ting, it is said. He was one of the men who attended the conference in tho Atiditioriu7n at. Chicago during tha Bryan convention at Chicago. He was. one of the first to respond to the call for n conference of gold democrats from the central states, held some five weekr ago. . .. • / •-.-•• •''•', The plan of organization and the gej:-, eral scheme, for holding the national' convention is said to have been born in cui^ uiinuii t=> oinw i.v iit*»•- m-\-« w».,.". t.ne-1, TrSS iroiu j^uoi. jjn tj i^v his brain.

All of these reasons will, it is believed, conspire to give him,the presiduntial.n.omina.tion-iQ the face of actions of his own state, for which, let it be again said, he was responsible. In the event that he is nominated Gen. Buckner will be the vice presidential nominee, so that it now appears!almost certain that the slogan of the .gold democracy in the " Reports to the effect that a largo nun-- ber'of-rtiem will not be here, but will lie-represented by proxies, are emphatically denied by the officials nt headquarters.'.

The prompt action of the mayor in calling out the force kept the fires out of the city, but it crowded close to the cemeteries west of town.
